real mandarin mcu

In the 11 years since it launched itself onto the scene and changed Hollywood as we know it, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has gone through major changes, with some elements and characters from early films left to the dust. But as we move into a greater unknown Phase of the MCU, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige hints that we may see some familiar villains crop up again. That includes one villain who many fans feel never got his fair shake: The Mandarin.

rocket raccoon guardians of the galaxy 3

In his first interview following his firing and eventual rehiring to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, James Gunn struck a remarkably even tone while talking about the roller coaster he went through. But while he has largely made peace with how things unfolded, Gunn said there was one element of the entire debacle that would have hit him hard: not being able to finish Rocket Raccoon’s arc. The sardonic anthropomorphic raccoon played by Bradley Cooper was near to Gunn’s heart, and he suggests that in the third Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket would wrap up his arc from distrustful petty criminal to full-fledged hero.

guardians of the galaxy firing

Last summer, James Gunn was on top of the world. And then he wasn’t. The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise filmmaker was fired by Disney after offensive joke tweets from his past resurfaced, and despite fan outcry defending Gunn, it looked like his days with Marvel were over – especially when word broke that he was heading over to DC and Warner Bros. to direct the Suicide Squad sequel. But in March of this year, Marvel and Disney reversed their decision, and rehired Gunn to helm the third Guardians entry. In a new interview, Gunn gets candid about his Guardians of the Galaxy firing and rehiring.

Netflix Egyptian Theater

Netflix may be the streaming giant to beat, but with Disney amassing the forces of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and now Hulu behind it, that giant could be knocked down a peg. And the House of Mouse and its upcoming streaming service Disney+ could hit Netflix where it hurts most: their subscribers. A new poll suggests that Netflix users could cancel their subscription to the service if it lost Disney or Disney-related titles like Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and the Star Wars films. But saying you would cancel Netflix is different than actually going through with it.

Avengers Endgame Back to the Future

It’s fair to say that Bob Gale may be one of the people on Earth who has most shaped the way human beings think about time travel.

Sure, you could put people like Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking up there, but Gale is the co-writer/producer of the Back to the Future trilogy, and it’s a safe bet that more people have seen those movies than have cracked open a book by either of those two scientists. As you undoubtedly know by now, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame deals extensively with time travel and even makes a specific reference to Back to the Future along the way. So how did Gale react to that when he first saw it? Read on for his comments.

Avengers Escape Room

The Avengers were able to undo the death of half the universe and get rid of Thanos and his whole army. But how will they fare when they’re faced with the difficult task of working together to solve puzzles and get out of an escape room?

For those who don’t know, an escape room is a puzzle-solving game where you and a group of friends (or strangers) are placed inside of a room, and the only way to get out is to use your surroundings to figure out how to escape. The movie Escape Room can help paint a picture for you, or you can watch as some of the cast members from Avengers: Endgame partake in an escape room with co-director Joe Russo as their gamemaster. See what happens with The Avengers escape room below. Read More »

Avengers Endgame

Avengers: Endgame is full of tragedy, not simply because of the heart-wrenching ending, but because of the five years of doom and gloom Earth’s mightiest heroes must endure after failing the universe. However, one character whose arc was already tragic enough in the sequel was almost a little more upsetting in a number of ways, especially for fans who were unhappy with how Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) was handled in this culmination of The Infinity Saga.
