ant-man and the wasp villain

Thus far, the marketing for Ant-Man and the Wasp has been building up Hannah John-Kamen‘s Ghost as the Big Bad of the Marvel sequel. But could another classic Marvel Comics villain make a surprise appearance in the Ant-Man sequel?

Another Ant-Man and the Wasp villain may have flown right under our nose. And it was only thanks to the recently released Ant-Man and the Wasp cast list that we learned Ghost may not be the only antagonist causing trouble for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly).

Ant-Man and the Wasp Hannah John-Kamen interview

Hannah John-Kamen played Ben Mendelsohn’s number two baddie earlier this year in Ready Player One, but she’s graduating from henchwoman to supervillain in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp. The British actress plays Ghost, a character who…well, who we don’t really know much about at this point. Marvel is trying very hard to keep this character’s details under wraps, which made for an interesting dance during our interview with John-Kamen on the film’s set outside Atlanta last fall.

Read on for our full Ant-Man and the Wasp Hannah John-Kamen interview, and see if you can pick out any secrets hiding in plain sight. Read More »

Wonder Woman 1984 Comic-Con

Just a couple days ago, we got a rundown of which movies would be heading to San Diego Comic-Con to show off the goods to the thousands of fans in attendance at one of the biggest pop culture conventions in the world. While we got confirmation of some of the big movies that will be promoted at the convention, some movies were still only predicted to make an appearance. But we’ve got word on a few additions that will definitely be there.

First up, in addition to the debut of the first Aquaman trailer, the Warner Bros. Pictures panel will also feature a “surprise” Wonder Woman 1984 appearance.

the handmaid's tale the last ceremony review

(We’re going to kickstart our weekly The Handmaid’s Tale review by answering one simple question: Who suffered the most?)

The screener for this week’s episode of The Handmaid’s Tale came with a curious bolded warning: “This episode has content that may be extra sensitive for some viewers.” It’s an alarming piece of cautionary text for a show that has regularly trafficked in misery.

This season of The Handmaid’s Tale has upped the suffering to ludicrous levels, so much so that at times the acclaimed show has felt no better than misery porn. At what point does watching The Handmaid’s Tale just become a sadistic chore for us every week? While early episodes showed promise of an expanded world and affecting character arcs outside of June’s POV, The Handmaid’s Tale was all too eager to snap back to the status quo and to the abject misery that it was so known for in the first Emmy-winning season. But I will say that at least “The Last Ceremony” makes an effort to give us an emotional anchor that makes the episode more impactful than earlier episodes’ barrage of bleak imagery. But is it enough to offset one of the show’s most violently distressing scenes?

Jurassic Park 3 Honest Trailer

This weekend brings Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom to theaters. And while it seems like there’s not much excitement surrounding the sequel, it’s still on track to have a big opening weekend somewhere between $130 million and $140 million. That may not be as big as the opening of Jurassic World, but that’s perfectly fine. At the very least we know this won’t be a disaster on par with what is probably the worst film in the franchise.

Jurassic Park 3 was released in 2001 in a desperate attempt to keep the franchise relevant. Instead, they threw out everything that made the first movie a classic and the second movie tolerable and turned it into an excuse to have dinosaurs chase after stupid characters and taint everything that came before it. Oh, and it has a fucking talking raptor in it. Read More »
