We’re still in the early stages of Marvel’s Phase Three — next week’s Doctor Strange is just the second film out of ten — but since Marvel is famous for mapping out its plans well ahead of time, it’s impossible not to wonder what’s coming in Phase Four. So let’s give into that temptation, and spend a bit of time speculating.
Marvel already has three dates nailed down for 2020: May 1, July 10, and November 6. What remains unclear is which titles they’re for. Which films can we expect in 2020 and beyond from Marvel’s Phase Four? Read More »

Last night if you happened to be on Facebook at the right time, there was a surprise live broadcast from behind the scenes of Thor: Ragnarok down in Brisbane, Australia. In fact, it was the final day of production, and Taika Waititi wanted to show fans around the little outdoor studio location they were shooting on that day with franchise star Chris Hemsworth present and new co-star Tessa Thompson (with Valkyrie war paint on her face) on hand as well.
While not much was revealed about Thor: Ragnarok, there were some interesting little details to be noted about the set, which looks like some kind of space junkyard that wouldn’t feel out of place in Guardians of the Galaxy, and some of the extras spotted. But in a very quick moment, Waititi revealed that we’ll see a certain Planet Hulk character in Thor Ragnarok. Read More »
If you’re a Quentin Tarantino fan, then you know that there are tiny connections that link all of his movies together so that they all exist in the same universe. Tarantino actually clarified how these connections work earlier this year after The Hateful Eight was in wide release:
“There are actually two separate universes. There’s the realer than real universe, and all the characters inhabit that one. Then there’s this “movie” universe, so From Dusk Till Dawn and Kill Bill take place in this special movie universe. Basically, when the characters from Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction go to the movies, Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn is what they go see.”
Now a stylish new video illustrates perfectly and entertainingly how all these movies are connected by jumping back and forth between them. There are even some of the more subtle references that you may have never picked up on, including some stuff from one of Tarantino’s “lost” movies.

Easily one of the coolest sci-fi weapons of all time is the ZF-1 from The Fifth Element. If you’re not as familiar with the Luc Besson sci-fi film starring Bruce Willis as you should be, it’s the weapon that Gary Oldman demonstrates for his alien crime partners who are trying to steal the elemental stones for him. The gun has a rocket launcher, arrow launcher, net launcher, flamethrower, ice blast, a feature that allows every bullet shot to hit the same target, and of course a self-destruct button. It’s been an object of desire for Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage to build his own for years, and now after 17 years of work, he’s finally completed it.

Iron Man may be Robert Downey Jr.‘s most famous role, but you may recall that it’s not his only ongoing franchise about an arrogant genius. He’s also the star of Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes movies — not to be confused with BBC One’s Sherlock TV series, which features a different Marvel actor as the famed detective.
The Sherlock Holmes franchise was put on hold for a bit while Downey was busy with Marvel, but now Sherlock Holmes 3 is moving forward again with an entire writers’ room at its disposal. Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Justin Malen (Baywatch), and Kieran Fitzgerald (Snowden) are all on board to help write the next (but probably not last) installment of the series.
