brie larson avengers 4

If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline can get confusing, don’t even try to make sense of the movies’ shooting schedules. But Marvel Studios is a well-oiled machine, and sometimes stars find themselves having to shoot scenes for a movie that could potentially spoil their introduction.

That was the case for Brie Larson, star of Marvel’s first female solo superhero movie, Captain Marvel. After being teased for years, she will make her highly anticipated debut in March 2019 and appear in Avengers 4 a few months later. But because of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4‘s back-to-back shooting schedules, Larson found herself shooting scenes for Avengers 4 before she even got to touch her solo debut.

Hopefully, Larson didn’t mind the spoilers.

Guardians of the Galaxy Song in Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may have been just dethroned from the top of the box office by Deadpool 2, but fans are still talking about the Marvel Studios sequel. That includes sending questions to director James Gunn, since he was consulted about how the Guardians of the Galaxy were utilized throughout the movie. One question has been thrown his way a number of times, and he wanted to make sure everyone got the answer.

When the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, they’re flying across space to answer a distress call. While the rest of the movie only uses Alan Silvestri’s score, this particular sequence starts off with the crew listening to “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners from the Zune that Star-Lord was given at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But there were a few other options that could have been used for this sequence.  Read More »

deadpool 2 spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: David Leitch’s surprisingly funny Deadpool 2.)

“This is a family film,” Deadpool tells us early on in Deadpool 2. It is, of course, a joke – a movie loaded with vulgar jokes and ultra-violence can’t really be a “family film.” And yet, there’s an air of truth to this. Because a family indicates growth, and growth is exactly what Deadpool 2 showcases. For all its flaws – like the first film, it’s never quite as funny or subversive as it thinks it is – Deadpool 2 takes the meta world created by the original Deadpool, and builds upon it. It finds new ways to tell an old joke, and for that, it’s (mostly) a success.

Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio

UPDATE: We’ve got word that Spider-Man: Homecoming villain Michael Keaton will be returning as Vulture. We talk about what that could mean in our story below.

Jake Gyllenhaal has come close to entering the superhero genre a couple times in his career. When Tobey Maguire tried to play hardball to negotiate a new contract for Spider-Man 2 and any sequels that might follow, Jake Gyllenhaal was waiting in the wings to take the job. Then the Donnie Darko and Nightcrawler star almost suited up for DC Comics as one of the top choices to play The Dark Knight in Batman Begins. But now it will be a Marvel villain role that brings the actor into the fray.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are working on their sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland. While it would seem that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 leaves the wallcrawler’s future uncertain, the studios are moving forward with casting for the sequel, and they’re currently in talks with Jake Gyllenhaal to play the Spider-Man villain Mysterio.
