Hawkeye Star Vera Farmiga Is An Actual Archer

While Jeremy Renner has been the MCU's resident archer as Clint Barton for more than a decade, it turns out the new "Hawkeye" series is bringing an actual archer into the mix. Vera Farmiga, who stars in the Disney+ show alongside Renner and Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop, revealed during a press conference (as reported by Comic Book Resources), that Farmiga has some real-life archery skills.

"I love archery, just hands down. I am an archer. You guys don't know this about me. My first job, I played an archer with Heath Ledger in a series called 'Roar,' where I had my bow and arrow and I had my 40-pound pull-weight arrow... and I'm good at it, to be honest with you, so if I wasn't gonna be wielding that bow and arrow, I just wanted to be next to someone with true grit."

Farmiga might be coming for your job, Renner. Watch out.

Check it out for yourself above.

Is a Spider-Man: Miles Morales Movie Actually Happening?

What's the time? It's rumor time! As reported by noted Hollywood scooper Daniel Richtman, Sony is said to be actively developing a "Spider-Man" movie based on none other than Miles Morales. The wildly popular character is at the center of "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" and its upcoming sequel. This would make a lot of sense, especially with Tom Holland possibly nearing the end of his tenure. This feels inevitable, much like Thanos. Even so, we must classify this as a rumor until further confirmation is provided.

Image Comics Title Nocterra Getting The Series Treatment at Netflix

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, and confirmed by Image in the above tweet, "Nocterra" is being turned into a series by Netflix. Roberto Patino ("DMZ") is set to write the drama based on Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel's sci-fi comic. So, what exactly is the book about? Here's the official synopsis:

Ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous shades, the only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light. Enter Valentina "Val" Riggs, a skilled ferryman who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen wheeler.

One can only hope this works out better for Netflix than Jupiter's Legacy did.

Jennifer Lawrence Takes Some Blame for X-Men: Dark Phoenix

"Dark Phoenix" is, to say it kindly, not the best "X-Men" movie ever made. It ended Fox's version of the franchise on a low note, and Jennifer Lawrence, who played Mystique in the movie, is taking at least some blame. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, she addressed the disappointing sequel, as well as some other flops like "Mother," saying that she wasn't delivering the quality that she should have been.

"I was not pumping out the quality that I should have. I just think everybody had gotten sick of me. I'd gotten sick of me. It had just gotten to a point where I couldn't do anything right. If I walked a red carpet, it was, 'Why didn't she run?'... I think that I was people-pleasing for the majority of my life. Working made me feel like nobody could be mad at me: 'Okay, I said yes, we're doing it. Nobody's mad.' And then I felt like I reached a point where people were not pleased just by my existence. So that kind of shook me out of thinking that work or your career can bring any kind of peace to your soul."

Let's hope Lawrence is back on her A-game for "Don't Look Up."

Keanu Reeves Would Love to Play John Constantine Again

Keanu Reeves' "Constantine" was not exactly a hit in its day. However, the DC Comics adaptation has found an audience over the years, and there has been demand to see Reeves return to the role. Rumors have even circulated that a sequel may well be in development. Whether or not that's actually true remains to be seen, though Reeves in the above video for Esquire does confirm that he would, indeed, love to take on the role again, if he was provided the chance. Reeves said:

"I love playing Constantine. John Constantine. I've played a lot of Johns. How many Johns have I played? I don't even know. I think it's over ten. But anyway, I'd love to have the chance to play Constantine again."

Your move, Warner Bros.

WandaVision Favorite Agatha Harkness Returns to Marvel Comics

Lastly, as reported by the folks at Bleeding Cool, none other than Agatha Harkness has returned to the Marvel Comics universe. While the character has a long history in the comics, she wasn't exactly a big-name character until Kathryn Hahn gave her new life in "WandaVision." So much so that Hahn is even reprising the role in a new series titled "Agatha: House of Harkness" on Disney+. That being the case, Marvel is boosting the character's profile in the comics once again, with the wicked witch making an appearance in the recently published "Hulkling & Wiccan Infinity Comic." The digital series wrapped up its run with issue #4, but not before Agatha stopped by. We'll avoid spilling details here but those interested can read the series on the Marvel Unlimited app.
