Iron Man 3 - Ty Simpkins in Avengers 4

We already know the cast of Avengers: Infinity War will be massive by bringing in all the surviving superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it sounds like the cast of Avengers 4 will be bringing even more characters into the mix outside of all the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.

It’s not often that supporting characters who aren’t superheroes or villains end up returning for Avengers movies unless they have direct ties to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (like Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan or Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts), but a new report indicates that Avengers 4 cast is recruiting Ty Simpkins to reprise his role as whiz kid Harley Keener from Iron Man 3.

Robert Englund

Today in slightly depressing but inevitable news: Robert Englund, the actor who made dream murderer Freddy Krueger immortal, says he’s too old to ever play the character again. Time marches on for all of us, and it seems age has caught up with Mr. Englund to the point where slipping on his razor glove and tattered Christmas sweater is no longer a possibility.

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we visit with some vapid LA types, watch a different and troubling kind of immigrant story, go beyond the hype surrounding Conor McGregor, look upon the greatness of a Bill Pullman western, and see The Punisher show his more sensitive, albeit violent, side.  Read More »

thor ragnarok scene change

Fair warning: I’m going to spend this article talking about something that happens in the Thor: Ragnarok trailers and how that aligns with what happens in the final movie. It’s not a world-shattering revelation, but if you’ve avoided all of the trailers thus far and would prefer to know nothing about the movie at all before seeing it, here’s your opportunity to bounce to the next article.

There’s a moment in the Ragnarok trailers in which Hela, the leather-clad villainess played by Cate Blanchett, catches Thor’s hammer (good old Mjolnir) out of the air and destroys it with her bare hand. It’s a symbol of her tremendous power, and a sign that she’s not to be trifled with. But in one trailer, this confrontation happens in an alleyway, and in a more recent video, the scene takes place in a grassy field. We’ve actually written about this before, but now director Taika Waititi has explained the reasoning behind changing that Thor Ragnarok reshoot.

The Dark Tower TV Series

Remember when The Dark Tower came out several years ago? Okay, it was actually only a few months, but it feels like an eternity, especially because the film was such an overall disappointment. Fans who had been waiting forever to see Stephen King‘s epic fantasy series leap to the big screen were heartbroken with the results, and the film barely broke even, taking in about $111 million at the worldwide box office. Despite this disappointment, a Dark Tower TV series is apparently still in the works. And perhaps because of these disappointments, it’s going to be a complete reboot.

star wars episode 9

In the aftermath of Colin Trevorrow leaving the director’s chair of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: Episode 9, there was a lot of speculation about who might take over. Eventually J.J. Abrams, the prodigal son who relaunched the franchise with The Force Awakens in 2015, returned to the fold, but before that was locked in, there was some speculation that The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson may come back to finish off the trilogy. After all, it was initially reported that Johnson would be writing the story treatment for Episode 9 – a claim the filmmaker recently described as inaccurate and based on “old info.”

But Johnson took himself out of the running for Episode 9, and in a new interview he confirms that he is not involved in the development of the upcoming follow-up to his sequel. And while we’re here, he also addresses the speculation that Luke Skywalker may be transitioning to the dark side of the Force.
