For years, fans have been crying out for the return of Batman Beyond and just yesterday, we learned that those cries might finally be answered, courtesy of a new animated film that’s apparently in development at Warner Bros. Now that the cat (bat?) is out of the bag, the original voice of hero Terry McGinnis, Will Friedle, wants to put his name into the hat to reprise the role he did so well in back in the early 2000s. Responding to the news, he said: “Uh…for real? I hope I get to play! #BringBackBeyond #Schway.”
Disney fans can’t wait to return for another Arabian Night in Agrabah this May when Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin remake flies into theaters (on a magic carpet). We’re expecting to get a new trailer any day now, but ahead of that, we have a pretty cool banner for the movie that offers a new look at the ensemble cast, which mixes fresh faces and established stars.
Whatever happens in Avengers: Endgame, it’s sure to shake up the status quo in the MCU for years to come. What with the film practically confirmed as the final appearance of Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America, it being strongly rumored to feature the death or retirement of Tony Stark, and also that at some point, a bunch of dead people are going to come back to life. But on top of that, there’s another fan theory with a bit of weight behind it: that Tony Stark will have become a father.
A select group of people have already seen Captain Marvel and their reactions suggest that we’re due something truly special.
From Pulp Fiction to Jurassic Park, the ever-prolific Samuel L. Jackson has been in a ridiculous number of major films, a lot of which remain frequent pop culture reference points many years later. It therefore seems inevitable that the fictional worlds inhabited by the actor would inadvertently collide sooner or later, such is the case with the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Netflix’s Bird Box was a huge hit, going so far as to launch its own craze of ‘bird-boxing,’ in which dangerous activities are done while blindfolded. This brief craze (which for all we know was the product of tabloid sensationalism more than anything really widespread) brought some negative publicity to the streaming giant as people attempted dumbass things like driving a car around with a blindfold on. Now, with the revelation that the film contained footage of the real-life Lac-Mégantic train disaster in 2013 to show the collapse of society, it’s generated even more bad publicity.
With barely more than a month and a week to go until the release of Captain Marvel, another batch of photos has been released online that teases an array of faces old and new from Carol Danvers’ big screen debut.
Facing off against the combined might of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham takes a serious badass, but that’s just what Hobbs & Shaw has got in the shape of Idris Elba. He’s playing Brixton in this summer’s Fast and Furious spinoff, and he’s been relentlessly hyped up by Johnson on social media.
The big question surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is who’s going to direct it, after James Gunn – who’s written and helmed both previous installments – was fired by Disney after a controversy surrounding some resurfaced offensive tweets. No doubt Marvel’s keen to find a replacement, but that could be a difficult task as it seems that many of the filmmakers who would be perfect for the job think Gunn’s the only one fit to do it.
Star Wars: Episode IX is currently wrapping up its shoot in England, with the film having recently shot scenes in their spiritual home of Pinewood Studios, in the Cardington Air Shed (which might suggest a return to Yavin 4) and now in a mysterious location. The picture comes from Instagram user Luke Griffin, who explains that the picture shows the set being dressed with snow. Check it out below
