Millennium’s Red Sonja cast may have just added another actor who has previously played in the Marvel Studios sandbox.
Hannah John-Kamen, who played the mysterious villain Ghost in 2019’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, is starring in the sword-and-sandal fantasy epic that’s been mired in development hell for years, and now it appears that Thor and Thor: The Dark World actress Jaimie Alexander may be joining her in a whole different type of comic book movie.

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be extremely interested in the idea of the multiverse: a series of separate, distinct universes running parallel to one another. Some characters have the ability to jump in and out of those universes, and before we see Doctor Strange grapple with the Multiverse of Madness next year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is primed to take audiences into that chaos by re-introducing familiar heroes and villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies into the MCU.
In a now-deleted tweet, the Sony Pictures Argentina account revealed a brief video of a new version of the Spider-Man: No Way Home logo, which ends with the logo glitching in a manner that is extraordinarily reminiscent of the glitches that happened in the 2018 animated classic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

The Movie: Enter the Dragon
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: In his final completed role before his premature death, Bruce Lee plays a spy who visits an island where a martial arts tournament is taking place. He’s been tasked with gathering proof that the island’s owner, Han – a former member of Lee’s Shaolin temple, who disgraced the temple’s legacy by using its lessons purely for his own benefit – is running drugs and a prostitution ring.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: This is one of the best martial arts movies of all time. It’s been on my list of things to see for probably 20 years now, but since it’s leaving Netflix at the end of this month, I finally sat down to check it out – and I was not disappointed. Read More »

The Tremors and Footloose star has been cast in Legendary’s The Toxic Avenger, a reboot of the ultra-low-budget franchise that began with a 1984 film that inexplicably spawned multiple sequels, an animated series, a comic, and a stage musical. Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) has already been cast in the lead role, and Bacon will be playing the villain.

For myself and many others, 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a high point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The way that film balances typical Marvel action sequences and solid performances with paying lip service to weighty themes about government, surveillance, and betrayal makes it stand out, but the dynamic, complicated relationship between old pals Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes is the film’s beating heart.
If you liked that movie, we have good news. In a new interview about Black Widow, director Cate Shortland said that folks who have had the chance to see her new Scarlett Johansson-led spy thriller have pointed out that Black Widow feels more similar to Captain America: The Winter Soldier than any other Marvel film thus far.

Jameela Jamil, who broke out with her role as high society snob Tahani Al-Jamil in the delightful NBC sitcom The Good Place, is the latest performer to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A new report says Jamil has boarded the cast of She-Hulk, the upcoming Disney+ legal drama which stars Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) as Jennifer Walters, also known as She-Hulk after receiving a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner. Jennifer is much more even-tempered than her cousin, though, and she can retain most of her control and intelligence while operating with green skin – so much so that her power set does not hinder her career as a lawyer.
