It looks like a war movie about life in England during the London Blitz, when air raids by German planes were a daily fact of life. It looks like a movie about institutionalized sexism, as Gemma Arterton‘s character struggles to make her name in a male-dominated industry. And since that industry is film and she’s working as a screenwriter, it also looks like a movie about the power of cinema and how a great movie can harness the hearts and minds of nations. Can that blend work? I certainly hope so, because there’s a lot to like in this preview.

There are a few big characters in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, which acts as one of the first salvos in Marvel’s big Phase Three story set. The primary is obviously Doctor Strange himself, to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. There’s at least one villain, who may be played by Daniel Bruhl, and may or may not be Strange’s early adversary Baron Mordo. Strange and Mordo meet because they have the same teacher, the Ancient One, and he’s the third big character for the film.
So who plays the Ancient One? We don’t know yet, though there has been speculation that it could potentially be Al Pacino, who recently revealed that he has met with Marvel.

It’s a fairly diverse group — get an eyeful of the Ancient One shortlist below. Read More »
