This morning, Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg made DC fans’ day by revealing our first look at the Shazam family in their brand-spanking-new costumes for the sequel. The whole gang has undergone a revamp, with each hero sporting a fresh super-suit, but one of them has changed more than most as the photo reveals that one of the stars from the first film won’t be returning.

Sandberg’s photo captured Zachary Levi, in costume as Billy Batson, posing with his adoptive siblings who now share his magical abilities. Following on from their debuts in the third act of 2019’s Shazam!, Adam Brody, Meaghan Good, Ross Butler and D.J. Cotrona are all back as the aged-up versions of Freddy Freeman, Darla Dudley, Eugene Choi and Pedro Pena, respectively. Michelle Borth is no longer joining them as Mary Marvel AKA Mary Bromfield, however.

Instead, Grace Fulton is playing both the regular Mary and the superhero Mary this time around. After fans started enquiring about Borth’s absence from the group pic, Sandberg confirmed on Twitter that the actress is not involved in Fury of the Gods. The filmmaker jokingly offered an explanation for how Mary will still maintain her secret identity.

Yes, Grace now plays both parts. But her hair and makeup is slightly different when she’s super so nobody will ever recognize her. Hey, it works for Wonder Woman! https://t.co/suaG3vaEZw

No reason has been given for Borth’s absence, though it’s possible it was a story-based decision. By the time of Shazam! 2, Mary will be the only actual adult among the heroes. It’s possible the Shazam powers will affect her differently now, then, and she’ll remain in her regular form, just with enhanced abilities, instead of physically transforming like the others. Borth was known to have signed a multi-picture deal originally, so it’s unlikely it was her to decision to leave.

Mark Strong is also not returning as Dr. Sivana in the follow-up, despite the last film’s post-credits scene. Instead Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu are serving as the new villains, a couple of Greek goddesses. Rachel Zegler is also joining the cast as a new ally for the family. Shazam! Fury of the Gods is on course to blast into theaters in June 2023.

An Awesome Brie Larson Movie Is Dominating Netflix Today

itemprop=”headline name”>An Awesome Brie Larson Movie Is Dominating Netflix Today

2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World remains a cult classic that deserves to be found by a wider audience, both for Edgar Wright’s faithful adaptation of the comic book source material and a stellar cast that includes Brie Larson. To this end, it’s good to see that Scott Pilgrim is currently doing well on Netflix, having jumped up into the top twenty movies on the platform today.

For those not in the know, Scott Pilgrim stars Michael Cera as a Toronto slacker and musician who falls for Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Ramona Flowers. Soon after, though, Scott has to fight a series of Ramona’s evil exes, including Chris Evans’ Lucas Lee, Brandon Routh’s vegan-powered Todd Ingram, and Jason Schwartzman’s Gideon Graves. Larson shows up for a memorable turn as Scott’s ex “Envy” Adams.

Boasting a hyper-kinetic style that mirrors Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is a great showcase for Edgar Wright’s directorial talents, and references everything from manga to video games. It was a shame, then, that the movie failed to do well at the box office, despite a generally positive response from critics, and has since gone on to build a loyal viewership on DVD and streaming.

While we had a theatrical re-release in 2020 to mark the tenth anniversary of the picture, as well as an updated edition of its video game, hopes for a sequel have so-far been pretty slim. Most of the actors, including Brie Larson, who recently shared a new version of her song from the film, have moved on to stardom. If you’ve not seen Scott Pilgrim vs. the World already, then I’d highly recommend checking it out via Netflix, especially as an experience that rewards multiple viewings to pick up on the many details that Wright and co. layer through the story and its visuals.

HBO Max has announced everything that’s new on the platform in July. The WarnerMedia streamer service is definitely celebrating the summer in style as there’s a ton of great stuff coming next month, from a range of must-see original TV to one major blockbuster that’s sure to get the internet talking. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

July kicks off with a load of classic films becoming available on both HBO and HBO Max. Horror fans will be pleased to see the original Scream trilogy among them. The biggest title dropping on the 1st, though, has to be No Sudden Moves, a new crime thriller from Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh about a group of small-time criminals in 1950s Detroit. Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour and Jon Hamm star.

Skipping ahead to the 8th, we have the premiere of the Gossip Girl reboot. Coming just shy of a decade since the original series concluded, the story continues with a new group of Manhattan private schoolers whose lives fall under the eye of the mysterious Gossip Girl (Kristen Bell, the only cast member to return). Another new show debuts on July 11th – satirical comedy The White Lotus from creator Mike White, following the staff of a Hawaiian vacation resort.

A bunch of recent TV arrives on the platform over the course of the month, too. Namely, the Doctor Who New Year 2021 special on the 1st, Nancy Drew season 2 on the 3rd, What We Do in the Shadows spinoff Wellington Paranormal on the 12th and Batwoman season 2 on the 27th. The biggest newbie of July, however, has to be Space Jam: A New Legacy, the Looney Tunes/basketball crossover sequel starring LeBron James. Make sure to catch it on July 16th.

Exclusive Interview: Chris Pratt And Edwin Hodge Talk The Tomorrow War

itemprop=”headline name”>Exclusive Interview: Chris Pratt And Edwin Hodge Talk The Tomorrow War

By

Scott Campbell

2 mins ago

Chris Pratt is no stranger to sci-fi on a massive scale, having starred in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers franchises, the Jurassic World trilogy and cosmic romance Passengers, but the actor has never appeared in anything quite like The Tomorrow War.

Chris McKay’s live-action feature debut is that rarest of things; a big budget blockbuster that’s based on a completely original concept. Pratt headlines the ensemble cast as Dan Forester, a former special forces operator now working as a teacher who finds himself drafted into the titular conflict, which sees time travelers from 30 years in the future return to the present day in an effort to recruit soldiers in the battle against an intergalactic species that’s wiped out the majority of the human race by 2051.

Once reenlisted, Pratt finds himself jostling for alpha male status with Edwin Hodge’s Dorian, one of the rare veterans to have survived more than one tour. In an exclusive interview with We Got This Covered, we spoke to the two stars about The Tomorrow War, whether there’s any mixed emotions about the movie bypassing theaters entirely, and what makes the project so special, which you can check out below.

It must be a relief after the long wait, to know The Tomorrow War is almost finally here, and you can talk about it and try not to give away any spoilers.

Chris Pratt: Yeah, and it has been a long time coming, but we’re pretty excited about it.

Are there any mixed emotions that fans won’t get to see it on the big screen because of the sheer size of the movie, but the fact it’s on Amazon means it could potentially find a much bigger audience?

Edwin Hodge: Very, very true. I don’t know how many countries we’re gonna be in, how many different languages we’ll be in. The last I heard there were thirteen languages we were gonna premiere this film in, you know. And to open on such a large scale, and to be able to touch many different countries, and have people hear it in their own language, it’s actually pretty cool.

I don’t think, really, films get an opportunity to open on a large scale like that. Usually, like Germany might have to wait two months before they get to see it, because they gotta spend time dubbing, but we kind of took care of all of that for you guys up front, and now we have this massive opening.

Chris Pratt: Yeah, it is a little bittersweet. I suppose you hope that it’s not the end of an era for big blockbuster movies at the cinema, and I don’t think that is is, because we’ve already seen big movies come back in the theaters, and doing really well, like A Quiet Place 2 and The Conjuring. And when we made a deal with Amazon to distribute this movie, it was late last year, it was right in the height of the pandemic, so we didn’t really know what it was.

And there’s going to be a lot of films coming back to the box office, and it’s a really crowded marketplace there, just because of the number of films that got pushed back. So I have no fear about cinema going away, and I’m really grateful that I’m part of this movie that was initially intended to be seen on the big screen, but if you watch a big film that’s intended for the big screen and it doesn’t work, it’s because the story doesn’t work. I think our story really works.

I think you can watch a story like this on the small screen. It doesn’t need to be explosions and big action sequences; we have a ton of those, and they’re going to look great on any size of TV that you watch it on, but ultimately it’s the story that’s going to set this movie apart.

You’ve both got plenty of experience in sci-fi/military movies, action movies and blockbusters, you’ve pretty much seen and done it all between the two of you. What is it that makes The Tomorrow War stand out from the pack, because it’s one of the few big budget movies that’s based on an original concept as well?

Chris Pratt: I think you saying that, that’s one. You pointed out one thing, it’s original. It’s original IP, it’s got this kind of budget, I think it deals with universal themes that aren’t typically in sci-fi. There’s a sort of It’s a Wonderful Life-type look at regret, second chances for redemption, and life. As well, weirdly timed post-pandemic, even though we shot it pre-pandemic; a global crisis that the entire world must use science and come together and solve.

I think that’s interesting and really timely. And I think as far as creatures go, and aliens go, these maybe the very best I think I’ve ever seen. They’re incredible, they’re scary, they’re brilliantly designed, they’re unique. They’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, and simply unforgettable.

Edwin Hodge: I concur!

That concludes our interview with Chris Pratt and Edwin Hodge. The Tomorrow War is coming exclusively to Amazon on July 2nd.

WB Reportedly Wants Dwayne Johnson In Mortal Kombat Franchise

itemprop=”headline name”>WB Reportedly Wants Dwayne Johnson In Mortal Kombat Franchise

By

Scott Campbell

20 mins ago

It takes a very confident person to board a series of pre-existing properties and dub themselves ‘Franchise Viagra’, but Dwayne Johnson is hardly known for being short of self belief. Not only that, but the actor backed up his words by steering each of the projects in question to significantly higher box office totals than their predecessors managed without him.

Fast Five hauled in over $260 million more than the fourth installment. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island out-earned the first chapter by close to $100 million. G.I. Joe: Retaliation wound up with a haul $70 million in excess of The Rise of Cobra. And Jumanji: The Next Level‘s $962 million total was over three times the tally managed by Robin Williams’ original, so you can’t argue with the facts.

Any property would love to have him on board, and we’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Captain America 4 with Anthony Mackie was in development long before it was confirmed – that Warner Bros. are planning on attempting to lure Johnson into the Mortal Kombat sandbox, as unlikely it may seem at this moment in time.

Of course, the A-lister has a strong relationship with the studio forged across projects including San Andreas, Central Intelligence, Rampage and the upcoming duo of DC League of Super-Pets and Black Adam, not to mention the fact he’s producing high concept actioner Emergency Contact for WB with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II set to star, so he’ll be more than familiar with the boardroom.

While the idea of Dwayne Johnson showing up in a Mortal Kombat sequel might sound a little far-fetched right now given the recent reboot’s desire to cast proven martial artists and lesser-known names, we’ll just need to wait and see what the future holds for a potential franchise described as a top asset.

Amber Heard’s New Movie Flops, Has Only Earned $36,000 So Far

itemprop=”headline name”>Amber Heard’s New Movie Flops, Has Only Earned $36,000 So Far

By

Scott Campbell

28 mins ago

Even if you completely ignore all of the rumor, speculation, backlash, bile and vitriol pointed in the direction of her personal life, which is admittedly difficult when there’s simply so much of it, Amber Heard hasn’t been having the greatest of times onscreen since she played the female lead in Aquaman, which made over $1.1 billion at the box office to go down in the history books as the biggest DC adaptation ever.

Admittedly, her entire filmography in that time extends to two movies, a streaming exclusive and a TV show, but it still doesn’t make for great reading. Even Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which was instantly beloved among fans, saw the actress come under fire for the bizarre and ultimately misguided decision to give Mera a British accent for whatever reason, something she was clearly incapable of pulling off.

Additionally, mystery thriller London Fields was dumped into cinemas five years after shooting wrapped, during which time the director sued the producers for fraud, while Heard was also the subject of a $10 million lawsuit for a film that by all accounts is terrible, boasting the unwanted distinction of a 0% Rotten Tomatoes score.

Her latest, Gully, at least fared a little better, but critics still bashed the drama heavily. Having initially premiered in April 2019, the Coronavirus pandemic saw it shelved for over two years, and since finally scoring a big-screen release two and a half weeks ago, it’s only managed to bring in a paltry $36,000 globally and has never played in more than 100 theaters at one time. At least Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will be guaranteed to bring Amber Heard some success, then, following a string of duds.

By

Joe Pring

@JCPring

4 seconds ago

After six months of total absence from the platform’s digital storefront, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally returned to PlayStation Store. Earlier today, Sony reinstated the beleaguered RPG to its online storefront, making it possible for consumers to purchase and download it for PS4 and PS5. Anyone who currently owns a physical copy of CD Projekt RED’s most recent release has been able to play uninterrupted since launch, of course, but those who prefer to consume their entertainment without relying on a disc can now do so.

The long-awaited restoration represents a victory (albeit small) for CDPR, especially it has repeatedly been forced to address the situation with shareholders, and one can only assume V is here to stay this time around. Night City is in considerably better shape than it was back in December, after all, thanks to the delivery of numerous patches aimed at fixing various bugs and other technical issues.

In confirming the good news over on Twitter, CDPR also says that outlines a release window for Cyberpunk‘s next-gen upgrade.

While the plan has always been to roll this out as a free update for existing owners, the originally slated ‘early 2021’ projection was inevitably pushed back in order to allow the studio time to remedy fan concerns. With those now largely dealt with, it would seem as though the sci-fi adventure is now on course to debut natively on PS5 within the next several months. While no mention is made of similar for Xbox Series X|S, one can likely expect the same deal for Microsoft’s devices.

Have you been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 to be reinstated on PlayStation before giving it a whirl, or have you long since moved on? Let us know in the usual place below!

Nobody Director Confirms That A Sequel’s In The Works

itemprop=”headline name”>Nobody Director Confirms That A Sequel’s In The Works

By

Scott Campbell

42 mins ago

Based on nothing but the talent involved on either side of the camera, there was no way that this year’s high concept action movie Nobody was going to be anything other than a massively entertaining slice of genre cinema.

Director Ilya Naishuller made his feature directorial debut on the insane first-person sci-fi thriller Hardcore Henry, which has already become a firm favorite among aficionados, while the script came from longtime John Wick scribe Derek Kolstad. Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw filmmaker David Leitch was one of the producers through the 87North banner he founded with Wick co-creator Chad Stahelski, so the set pieces were always going to be on point.

Thrown in Bob Odenkirk as an unlikely badass, which he proved to be phenomenally good at, and you’ve got a recipe for both success and a potential franchise. Nobody opened theatrically in March when the pandemic was still limiting the industry, but nonetheless managed to haul in $61 million on a $16 million budget while going down a storm with audiences and critics alike, currently boasting a solid 84% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

In a new interview, Naishuller confirmed that Kolstad is in the early stages of starting to crack the script for a second outing, which is exciting news for those desperate to see Odenkirk’s Hutch Mansell back on their screens.

“There’s plenty of stories that can be told in this world, with the character Hutch. I know that Derek has begun work on the sequel.”

After suburban father Hutch secretly revealed himself to be an elite government operative and blasted his way through the enemies trying to take him down, Nobody was tied up in a neat narrative bow. However, the door was still left wide open for further adventures, and the mid-credits scene set the stage for where it could be headed, so it’s clearly something Universal are keen to see happen.

Steven Spielberg Signs New Deal With Netflix For Multiple Movies

itemprop=”headline name”>Steven Spielberg Signs New Deal With Netflix For Multiple Movies

By

Scott Campbell

44 mins ago

As the only director in the history of cinema to have seen their filmography earn in excess of $10 billion at the box office, it’s completely understandable that Steven Spielberg sees a clear distinction between making movies for the big screen and streaming.

The legend has never shown much interest in helming a project that would bypass theaters entirely, but he’s clearly not above producing them, now that his Amblin Entertainment company inked a huge development deal with Netflix.

Amblin already has an agreement in place with Universal, but Spielberg will oversee a slew of new titles for both outfits, and it’s up to him which ones end up going where. The initial report offers that it could result in multiple Netflix exclusives on an annual basis, and from the three-time Academy Award winner’s perspective, it’s about to get a lot easier for him to push things through production now that he’s got two avenues with which to do it, especially as the streamer is intent to deliver as many in-house movies as possible.

Spielberg has West Side Story finally releasing in December and is gearing up to shoot semi-autobiographical drama The Fabelmans, but he’s remained incredibly active as either a producer or executive producer, with his recent and upcoming credits extending to notorious flops Cats and Men in Black: International, Neil Armstrong story First Man, Jurassic World: Dominion, next summer’s new Transformers and Leonard Bernstein biopic Maestro, which has Bradley Cooper set to direct and star, and was ironically picked up by Netflix.

We shouldn’t be expecting Steven Spielberg to start directing Netflix movies, then, but his fingerprints are set to be all over the platform’s output over the coming years regardless.

New Line Reportedly Wants To Do R-Rated Lord Of The Rings Movies

itemprop=”headline name”>New Line Reportedly Wants To Do R-Rated Lord Of The Rings Movies

By

Scott Campbell

4 seconds ago

A popular question to have circled the internet for years in regards to The Lord of the Rings asks where you would place the one use of the F-word allowed by the trilogy’s PG-13 rating. Some people love the idea of Isildur saying “F*ck no” when asked to cast the ring into Mount Doom by Elrond, while others have imagined Sean Bean’s Boromir telling the Hobbits that they can’t just walk into f*cking Mordor, or Gandalf reacting to Pippin’s antics in general by simply telling him to f*ck off.

Sadly, we didn’t get to hear any of Middle-earth’s most famous residents drop an F-bomb, but we might in the future after hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Warner Bros. were looking to get the ball rolling on TV shows set in the Harry Potter universe long before it was confirmed – that New Line Cinema are reportedly interested in the idea of R-rated Lord of the Rings movies.

Of course, the much more likely scenario is that any prospective adult-orientated projects based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s expansive lore would up the ante in terms of gore and violence rather than having everyone sling profanities at each other, but it’s fun to imagine nonetheless. Recently announced animated feature The War of the Rohirrim is sure to be getting slapped with a PG-13 to earn the most money possible at the box office, unless of course it gets sent straight to HBO Max.

However, there’s almost unlimited scope in telling even more Lord of the Rings stories given the sheer depth of the mythology, and a gratuitously violent take on the bloody battles to have defined Middle-earth is something a lot of fans wouldn’t mind seeing.

For almost thirty years, audience have been thrilled by the genetically engineered prehistoric beasts of the Jurassic Park franchise, but 2022 may see the series’ biggest installment to date. We’re talking about next summer’s Jurassic World: Dominion, the final entry in a trilogy of movies about the legacy of John Hammond’s doomed dinosaur theme park. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen teaser images and a poster, but now we have our first look at some footage courtesy of an awesome teaser trailer that you can check out up above.

As expected, the story follows directly on from the ending of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which saw Ingen’s dinosaurs released onto the mainland. The promo we have here hints at a brave new world, in which mankind is learning to live alongside the creatures, but you can bet that this status quo will be far from peace and harmony.

The dinos aren’t the only relics of the past coming back, though. Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum are all set to make a triumphant return to the franchise, too, binding together the original 90s trilogy with the modern one. And while we don’t get to see any of them in this all-too-brief promo, you can bet that the full trailer will showcase a whole handful of familiar faces.

Director Colin Trevorrow has explained that his goal with the Jurassic World movies was to have Claire’s line from the first film, “no one is impressed by a dinosaur anymore,” be proven false in Dominion and it looks like he’s well on his way to achieving that. But, let’s face it, even if the entire rest of the pic falls flat on its face, it’ll be worth it to see the increasingly battle-scarred Rexy letting out that iconic roar on the big screen one more time.

Jurassic World: Dominion hits theaters on June 10th, 2022.

EA could be planning to revive a popular survival horror series in the near future.

Created by now-defunct studio Visceral Games, the original Dead Space and its first sequel (the third game marked a drastic tonal diversion from its predecessors) are often regarded as some of the finest additions to the genre, not least for its truly nightmarish antagonists, the Necromorph. Isaac Clarke, an engineer tasked with answering a distress call by the USG Ishimura in the far reaches of space, quickly discovers most of the crew dead and transformed into hideous mockeries of their former selves.

Noted for borrowing heavily from Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise in a thematic sense, Visceral’s next installment upped the ante considerably with even more cleverly crafted scares and body horror sequences aplenty, though would ultimately fail to follow up the middle child with a triumphant trilogy-making threequel.

While a direct continuation of Clarke’s story, Dead Space 3 would eschew much of its horror roots in favor of action, introducing co-op and microtransactions in the process. EA has been majorly blamed for this drastic and sudden change in tone and direction, which inevitably led to poor sales and the series being put on indefinite hiatus.

According to comments made by GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, however, there could be light at the end of the tunnel for this once-revered IP. Grubb says the company has plans to reveal a new game in development by EA Motive – the same folks responsible for Star Wars: Squadrons. The studio is known to be working on an unannounced project behind closed doors, and a supposed Dead Space 4 is high on many fans’ wish lists.

All conjecture at this point, of course, but you can tune in with the hopes of getting some concrete answers during EA Play next month, July 22nd.

DC’s Doom Patrol launched in 2019 on the now canned DC Universe service and was met with high praise from audiences and critics alike. 

After the first season, the series was renewed for a second, which aired on DC Universe before being moved to HBO Max in August of 2020. Since this move, all of DC Universes’ original programming has been broadcast exclusively on HBO Max. And fortunately for Doom Patrol fans, there will still be a season three.

Shortly after the conclusion of season two, it was announced that the show would be returning for a third season and upon its move to HBO Max, Doom Patrol has been one of the most popular exclusives to the service.

When will Doom Patrol season 3 air?

According to a report by The Vulcan Reporter, season three has a date and its premiere will take place on September 23, 2021.

Don’t be surprised if this date winds up being shifted closer to release as other DC series has suffered setbacks recently causing their release schedule to be altered. This would be a fairly quick turnaround with the show starting production on January 4 and completed filming on June 5.

A post shared by Joivan Wade (@joivanwade)

Neither DC nor HBO have come out and confirmed this report, but given the timeline for the show, it’s more than likely that there will be some kind of announcement in the near future.

In its first season, the show premiered on February 15, 2019, and aired 15 episodes. The second season, which began airing on June 25, 2020, only ran for 7 episodes so it isn’t clear how many we will be getting in season three.

Doom Patrol isn’t the only DC property that will be getting a new season in 2021, HBO’s Titans season three was set to premiere in July but has been pushed back until a later date. It’s unlikely that we will see the two shows air simultaneously, but according to the cast of the show, Titans season three will begin airing during August.

Depending on the length of the season, the two shows could air back to back, however, it is more likely we see some timeline changes for the release of Doom Patrol.

Jigsaw Actor Tobin Bell Still Hasn’t Seen Spiral

itemprop=”headline name”>Jigsaw Actor Tobin Bell Still Hasn’t Seen Spiral

By

Scott Campbell

2 seconds ago

In the buildup to Spiral, there was a lot of intrigue surrounding a new Saw movie starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as one that didn’t involve Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw or his trusted confidant Billy the Puppet, the two most recognizable aspects of the entire mythology outside of the signature elaborate traps.

After being delayed for an entire year as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Spiral finally hit theaters last month and appears to have completely vanished from the cultural conversation already. Critically and commercially, it fared okay by the standards of the long-running horror series, but it did at least perform well enough to turn Saw into a billion-dollar brand.

On Rotten Tomatoes, a 36% rating is good enough to place it fourth out of the nine installments to date, while Metacritic’s 38 places it fifth. In terms of earning power, Spiral is at the very bottom of the pile having just barely crossed $36 million globally, although the pandemic can take the blame for a lot of that.

Fans were hugely appreciative of the latest chapter, though, but one person who surprisingly hasn’t gotten around to seeing it yet is Tobin Bell, although he did admit that he’s heard nothing but good things about returning director Darren Lynn Bousman’s latest.

“I have not seen Spiral, but I know I know what a talented and imaginative guy that Chris Rock is. So I can’t imagine that it doesn’t open a sort of a window into another kind of window. My understanding is it’s not really a Saw film, it’s kind of in the Saw universe. Having not seen it, I can’t really comment on it, except that anything that keeps Saw in the minds of people, and God knows the fans out there are incredibly dedicated to that franchise, will only focus attention on it. So Spiral is in the rear-view now and we’ll see what happens moving forward.”

Bousman revealed a while back that he’d toyed with the idea of having Bell cameo as Jigsaw right up until the final day of shooting, before deciding that he wanted Spiral to stand its own merits, which was probably the right move in hindsight. Sequel talks have already taken place, but it wouldn’t be unfair to say that Rock’s Zeke Banks isn’t going to dislodge Jigsaw as the franchise’s biggest icon.

Indiana Jones 5 marks a major change for the iconic action/adventure franchise as it’s the first installment in the series that won’t be helmed by the legendary archaeologist’s two creators. Steven Spielberg was close to directing, before he walked away to be replaced by Logan‘s James Mangold. George Lucas was never invited to work on the script, however, following the disappointing Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But it seems this is something he’s not happy about.

According to a new rumor, the man behind Star Wars is trying to get more involved with Indy 5. Harrison Ford’s long-awaited return as Dr. Jones is now shooting in England, and Lucas is allegedly pushing to visit the set. The only problem is that it’s said Disney won’t let him, which is causing him to get angry with the studio. This bit of hearsay comes our way via Redditor u/SpideyForever245, who has proven some reliable Disney-related intel in the past, including about Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Falcon and the Winter Soldier cameo.

Though Lucas’ problems with the Star Wars sequel trilogy are well-documented, the studio has always been courteous enough to invite him to the set for productions such as Solo and The Mandalorian. So it’s unclear why he wouldn’t be allowed to do the same for Indy 5. The most obvious suggestion for why he’s not on set is simply because Lucas is based in L.A. and it would be a long way for him to travel just for a quick visit. But apparently there is more friction going on behind the scenes than it appears.

Though Lucas isn’t involved with the film, Indy 5 looks set to further the sci-fi vibe he introduced into the universe with Kingdom. We know the plot will be built around the Space Race of the late 1960s, and this same source claims that Indy himself will travel into outer space. Will fans like this idea or could this be another “nuking the fridge” moment on our hands?

Indiana Jones 5 is headed to theaters in just over a year’s time, on July 28th, 2022.

Will There Be A Second Season Of WandaVision?

itemprop=”headline name”>Will There Be A Second Season Of WandaVision?

By

14 mins ago

WandaVision was Marvel’s debut series on Disney’s premium streaming service, Disney Plus. The show gained popularity fast with its creative sitcom episode styles and unexplored Marvel narrative.

Throughout the nine-episode season, fans were treated to a story centered around Wanda Maximoff, the Scarlett Witch, after the events of End Game as she copes with the death of her partner, and fellow Avenger, Vision.

In dealing with this tragedy, Wanda takes over a small town with her powers, transforming it to resemble the Americana she remembers from sitcoms in her childhood. In the remade town, she lives an idyllic life with her family, with the town’s original residents forced unwillingly as the supporting cast.

Without spoiling the ending, when the season concludes the premise of the show is torn down and Wanda is set to pursue other objectives. This has left fans wanting more and wondering when we can expect the next season of WandaVision.

When will WandaVision season two be released?

As of right now, Marvel has not shared any plans to release a second season of the show. While its first season’s ending might have hinted at things to come, the overall story of WandaVision was wrapped up nicely and so we might not get a new season at all.

This doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Wanda Maximoff though, as she has been confirmed to feature in the upcoming sequel Dr Strage in The Multiverse of Madness. Her appearance in this film would pick up nicely with the ending of the series, so if you’ve yet to check it out make sure you do before catching Dr Strage’s sequel in cinemas early in 2022.

When speaking to Deadline, Marvel film’s president Kevin Feige left the door open a potential second season, but it still doesn’t seem likely. “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite ‘no’ to anything as far as a second season of WandaVision,” Feige said. 

This opinion was echoed by WandaVision show director Matt Shakman who expressed the same opinion when speaking to Collider earlier this year. “We have no plans for WandaVision season 2 at all,” Shakman said. “That could change, of course. It all depends on what’s the story. We were very focused on telling this story over nine episodes and hopefully coming to a conclusion that feels satisfying and also surprising.”

While right now the chances seem slim, for those eagerly awaiting more WandaVision you will have to watch how the events of Dr Strange in The Multiverse of Madness play out, and what becomes Wanda’s fate inside the MCU before totally ruling out any future seasons.

What with all the intense interest in The Batman from DC diehards, it’s no surprise that plot elements from Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie have leaked online, with one surprising development in particular generating a lot of discussion. It’s clear from the footage we’ve seen so far that Robert Pattinson’s debut outing as the Dark Knight will be, well, dark, but this alleged twist teases corrupt versions of typically pure-hearted characters. Fans don’t know how to feel about this, and it seems Pattinson doesn’t support the idea either.

The leaked plot detail in question concerns Bruce’s parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne, who will be reportedly revealed as far from the pillars of society they usually are. The Riddler’s war on Gotham’s elite is believed to lead to the World’s Greatest Detective uncovering the truth about his family’s connections to some unscrupulous activities, which will leave him reeling.

It’s a somewhat bold revisionist take on the Waynes from Reeves, though to be honest it’s a concept that was already explored in 2019’s Joker. It will definitely prove to be controversial once the movie comes out, though, and it’s said to have already caused some friction between the director and his star. A new rumor claims that Pattinson is not on board with the idea that Bruce’s parents were evil.

This bit of hearsay comes our way via Redditor u/SpideyForever245, who has proven accurate several times in the past so it’s worth giving what he has to say a look, although some may remain skeptical. The tipster’s very light on details, so it’s unclear why Pattinson is supposed to have a problem with this development. From what he’s said in interviews, it seemed like the darker sides of the Batman mythos were what really appealed to the British actor.

But maybe, like some other fans are feeling, this is just one change too far for Pattinson. We’ll have to see how audiences as a whole react to this twist when The Batman finally hits theaters next March.

Michael Keaton is still held up by a lot of fans as the best live-action Batman ever, but it would be an understatement to say he had to win the doubters over, given that thousands of furious letters were sent to Warner Bros. headquarters protesting the casting of an actor best known for his work in the comedy genre as the iconic superhero, although all doubts were assuaged once audiences had the chance to see him in action.

Even getting to the point of hiring someone to play the role proved a nightmarish task, with one early version of the project before Burton came aboard toying with the idea of going down the Adam West comedic route and setting Bill Murray as the Dark Knight, with Eddie Murphy as Robin.

Warner Bros. tried to pressure the director into either casting someone with experience in the action genre or a recognizable name capable of drawing in the crowds, but Burton was adamant they opt for the most suitable candidate. One of the names offered the gig was Pierce Brosnan, but he turned it down because he had no interest in playing a superhero.

One of the other A-listers under consideration was Harrison Ford, but there’s never been any confirmation that he was officially approached for Batman, which was probably for the best. After all, having someone with Ford’s level of star power that was so closely linked to both Han Solo and Indiana Jones may have proven to be a distraction in the long run, and you can’t deny that the right choice was made in the end, with Keaton back on our screens as Bruce Wayne next year when The Flash releases.

When Will Westworld Season 4 Be Released?

itemprop=”headline name”>When Will Westworld Season 4 Be Released?

It’s been over a year since Westworld left us on a massive cliffhanger at the end of season three.

The HBO series that first aired in 2016 has drawn audiences into its complex narrative dealing with the ideas of free will, fidelity, and much more. One thing that has kept fans eager for more has been the many twists thrown in amongst the series—and the ending of season three was no exception.

Those who stuck around to check out the final episode’s post-credits scene would have been treated to the death of one of the series major characters, an event that seemingly comes out of nowhere and has massive implications to the narrative going forward. So when can we expect to see more?

When will Westworld season 4 be released?

Right now, there is no official release date for season four of Westworld. But, according to unnamed sources close to the production, it is set for a 2022 release. This scheduling would match with the show’s past routine of spacing each season two years apart. Initially being launched in 2016, the show didn’t release a second season until 2018, and a third two years after that in 2020.

Of course with all film and movie productions over the past year, COVID could play a factor in causing some delays, but for right now, 2022 seems like a safe bet.

Season three was the most unique season yet as fans were treated to their first glimpses at the world outside the parks. During this story, we met a handful of new characters that will be leading the narrative in the upcoming seasons.

There were previously rumors that showrunners Johnathan Nolan and Lisa Joy had plans for six seasons of Westworld. These were shut down, however, in an interview with Variety where the pair explained that they are taking the show a season at a time. The good news, though, is that Westworld was renewed for season four before the release of season three so we will likely have more news on future seasons later in the year.

In the meantime, fans can rewatch the first three seasons streaming on HBO Max. With how confusing the show can get at times, you’re bound to find something new on a rewatch that you may have missed during your first watch.

Bam Margera Hit With 3-Year Restraining Order By Jackass Director

itemprop=”headline name”>Bam Margera Hit With 3-Year Restraining Order By Jackass Director

Jackass 4 is coming later this year, featuring the usual gaggle of weirdos with an unusually high ability to tolerate pain. Returning are Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Jason “Wee Man” Acuña, Preston Lacy, Ehren McGhehey, and Dave England. But one star who won’t be back is Bam Margera, who sadly doesn’t seem to be doing so well right now.

In February Margera released a video calling for fans to boycott Jackass 4 after he was fired. In the disturbing he cried, dry-heaved, and vomited on camera, saying:

“I’m not in ‘Jackass 4,’ and if anybody cares about me, don’t go see their movie because I will make mine way f–king radder if you just Venmo me a dollar. … I wrote them so many ideas, and if I’m not in the movie, and they use my ideas, how do you think that that’ll make me feel?”

Now things have gone a step further, as Jackass director Jeff Tremaine has been granted a restraining order against Margera. It comes in the wake of Margera reportedly threatening Tremaine’s wife and children, which the court appears to have taken seriously enough to grant Tremaine’s request.

This is just the latest development in Margera’s long-time battle with substance abuse, which has seen him hospitalized for alcoholism, faced stints in rehab and mental health facilities, and incidents of violent behavior.

Despite this, Tremaine and Knoxville apparently pushed for Margera to be in Jackass 4, though Paramount wouldn’t agree unless he submitted to random urine tests, further visits to rehab, and a course of antidepressants. But it all fell apart in early 2021 and Margera was officially fired. As the shoot took place in late 2020 it’s possible that some stunts were shot with Margera, though after all this drama any footage featuring him will be now left on the cutting room floor.

Knoxville commented on Margera’s firing in an interview with Digital Spy:

“We want Bam to be happy and healthy and get the help he needs. We tried to push that along. I think that’s all I really want to say about it. I don’t want to get into a public back-and-forth with Bam. I just want him to get better.”

As a longtime fan of Jackass and his own Viva La Bam show, I hope Margera can get clean as his current situation obviously isn’t great.

In the meantime Jackass 4 will hit theaters on October 22nd, 2021.

@Gallohey_

14 mins ago

In 2020, Disney announced that Obi Wan Kenobi—played by none other than Ewan McGregor—will be returning to star in his own series.

The series, airing on Disney Plus, is set to take place after the prequel trilogy but before the original trilogy 10 years into the 19-year time gap. Fans have already seen some of this character’s actions during that time in the recent animated series Star Wars: Rebels, but in this upcoming live-action series the story will focus on Obi-Wan directly.

With its timeframe, there are plenty of opportunities to bring back fan-favorite characters such as Darth Maul, Asoka Tano, Qui-Gon Jinn, even Jaba the Hut. But right now the studio hasn’t announced any official details on the show’s story.

If you’ve been holding out to get in on the action here is everything to know about the upcoming Kenobi series right now.

Where does the Obi-Wan Kenobi series release?

Right now, the project doesn’t have a firm release date, but Disney’s Kathleen Kennedy shared that the series began filming in April of 2021. With a timeline like this, you can expect to see the series air sometime early in 2022. And with The Mandalorain’s third season set to begin in December of 2021, Obi-Wan could be the show to take its place once the season has concluded.

There haven’t been any trailers for the show released yet, so when one drops in the coming months we’ll have a much clearer timeline for the series release. The show was revealed at the 2020 Disney Investor Day conference and you can check out the announcement here.

Who will star in this upcoming series?

It should be no surprise that some of the prequel trilogies stars are returning for the action. Obviously, Ewan McGregor is reprising his role as Obi-Wan, but also Hayden Christensen will be back as Anikin Skywalker, or more likely, Darth Vader.

Right now, the only other characters we know will be appearing are Owen Lars and Beru Lars, more commonly known as Luke Skywalker’s uncle and aunt. These roles will reportedly be portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who are also returning after having played the characters in the prequel trilogy.

There are also plenty of new cast members joining the project with 12 members announced in total.

Cyberpunk 2077‘s longer-than-expected stint in purgatory is at an end.

Hyped over a period of several years due to what, in hindsight, was a grossly premature reveal, CD Projekt RED’s sci-fi RPG finally released back in December of last year. Rather than attracting acclaim from fans and critics alike on a level similar to that of the studio’s Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, however, the ambitious adaptation of Mike Pondsmith’s tabletop game failed to impress at almost every hurdle. Other than shipping with missing content and features originally shown in pre-release trailers, the most immediately noticeable issue brought to the developer’s attention was a mass of bugs and glitches.

While many of these proved to have little or no lasting effect on the overall gameplay experience, reports of main story missions simply not functioning properly and claims of considerably worse visual fidelity than advertised collectively contributed to platform holders taking an active interest in the situation.

No more than a few weeks following launch, Sony made the unprecedented move of removing Cyberpunk from sale on PlayStation Store indefinitely, stating at the time that it would continue to review the situation as it unfolded.

Six months and several extensive patches later, then, it would seem the Japanese tech giant has finally decided Night City is fit to welcome visitors once more. Following hints last week that a return was imminent, Cyberpunk 2077 is now freely available for purchase and download on PS4 and PS5. Do note that though it currently matters little which you play, CDPR says it still intends to release a dedicated next-gen version of the title later this year, so stay tuned for more details.

10 seconds ago

Reshoots are built into the schedule of any major blockbuster, with a couple of weeks typically marked out several months into the editing process, in the event that the filmmakers need to add some insert shots, character moments or additional dialogue to tie everything together in the neatest possible fashion.

On the other side of the coin, sometimes the additional photography can cost tens of millions of dollars, stretch on for months and often result in a near-total overhaul of the project in question from the ground up. The Batman will be getting back in front of cameras in the not too distant future for some pickups, and the real question is how significant they’ll turn out to be.

After all, the production dragged on for over fourteen months as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, and in the interim there’s been plenty of speculation and chatter about behind the scenes disagreements, arguments and fallouts between director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson, although we should point out that none of it has been officially corroborated as of yet.

However, we have heard from our sources – the same ones who allowed us to reveal Jared Leto’s new look as the Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League long before it was confirmed by the director himself – that Warner Bros. are reportedly downplaying the scale of The Batman‘s reshoots, with substantial sections of the story said to be getting either stripped back, added or removed completely.

At the end of the day, reshoots aren’t always a bad thing, so at least we can still hold on to the hope that The Batman will deliver on its potential, regardless of the purported on-set drama, when it finally arrives next March.

Mortal Kombat’s Kano Was Surprised To Be Called The Movie’s Highlight

itemprop=”headline name”>Mortal Kombat’s Kano Was Surprised To Be Called The Movie’s Highlight

By

Scott Campbell

3 seconds ago

There was an awful lot of dry exposition in the recent Mortal Kombat reboot, with plenty of characters delivering long and winding monologues that painstakingly explained the ins and outs of the mythology in great, and some would even say unnecessary, detail.

The martial arts fantasy actioner didn’t come laced with much humor either, with the notable exception of Josh Lawson’s Kano. The actor was clearly the only person who got the memo that the core concept is inherently ridiculous, and he appeared to be the sole member of the cast allowed to have any fun with their performance while everyone else treated things with the utmost seriousness.

Fans may be calling Mortal Kombat the best video game adaptation ever made, but the critical consensus was more than a little mixed, although most folks seemed to be in agreement that Kano was one of the highlights of the film. In a new interview, Lawson admitted that he was surprised to be singled out as the standout, even going so far as to reveal that it might be the strongest notices he’s ever received in his career.

“Look, I can say with a hand on my heart they’re probably the best reviews I’ve ever received in my career for Mortal Kombat, which I can promise you, it was not what I was expecting. Not that I thought I was bad in it, I just didn’t think anyone would notice. I’m very, very pleased that people responded to Kano. I’ll be honest, most of the time I’m used to terrible reviews of my career for the most part. So to get some positive reviews has been a lovely change. It’s been nice to feel like the work was appreciated.”

After Mortal Kombat found major success at both the box office and on HBO Max, you’d imagine a few more doors would have been opened for Lawson in Hollywood. He was a left-field choice for Kano having largely worked in comedy, but he proved to be a dab hand at the action sequences, and even better when it came to dropping a foul-mouthed one-liner or two.

Given the way Simon McQuoid’s feature directorial debut ended, there’s every chance he’ll be brought back for the inevitable sequel as well, which is great news for those who felt he was eliminated from the Mortal Kombat equation a little early.

Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Tops The Box Office This Weekend

The combination of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson reuniting for more R-rated buddy movie shenanigans was more than enough to see Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard top the box office this weekend, but it’s one of the weaker frames of the last month, just when it looked as though things were starting to rebound.

The action comedy sequel took the top spot with $11.6 million, but it did open on Wednesday instead of the typical Friday, and with a budget pegged to be around $50 million, it doesn’t have to do too much work to become profitable should it play well internationally. That’s definitely not out of the question either when the theatrical industry is in much better shape overseas, and the first installment wound up pulling in $101 million from markets outside the United States and Canada.

A Quiet Place Part II continued to impressively extend its pandemic-era record domestic haul, with a third weekend of $9.4 million bringing it closer to the $150 million mark, a barrier that no movie has managed to break through since Bad Boys for Life was released almost eighteen months ago, so John Krasinski’s horror sequel is a smash hit whichever way you want to slice it.

Of course, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is only going to have a one-week reign at the top, with Fast & Furious 9 arriving this coming Friday. The latest chapter in the long-running franchise has already brought in close to $300 million globally since initially starting to roll out last month, and it’s guaranteed at this stage to smash all existing benchmarks set during the COVID-19 era. However, for the next seven days at least, Reynolds and Jackson can sleep safe in the knowledge that they’ve got the number one film in the country.

Wednesday sees Marvel’s Loki continue with its third episode. The Tom Hiddleston vehicle, which features the God of Mischief having to work with Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) of the Time Variance Authority, has already proven to be a wild ride over its first two instalments – and things promise to only get wilder after the twist ending of episode 2.

Meanwhile, the rest of the week’s haul arrives on Friday. The other three of the platform’s ongoing shows return that day, so get ready for the latest episodes of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and National Geographic’s Gordon Ramsey: Uncharted. Speaking of National Geographic content, shark lovers will enjoy tucking in to all six seasons of When Sharks Attack.

A new original show also kicks off on Friday. As based on the hit YA novels, The Mysterious Benedict Society follows four orphans with special abilities who are summoned to a boarding school called The Institute by an eccentric benefactor (Toy Story 4‘s Tony Hale) who wants them to stop a plot that could put the whole world at risk. Kristen Schaal and Ryan Hurst also feature in this mystery-adventure series.

Last but not least, documentary Wolfgang debuts this week too. Legendary chef Wolfgang Puck pulls back the curtain on his inspiring real-life story, detailing how he survived a troubled childhood and rose to the top of his profession to become a household name.

Don’t miss all of this on Disney Plus this week.

We’re approaching the height of summer season, which is typically when the major studios roll out a string of successive blockbusters to try and draw audiences to the multiplex in big numbers on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case quite yet, but Fast & Furious 9 and Black Widow are on the way over the next two weeks, so a return to something resembling normality could be on the cards.

In terms of originals, Liam Neeson’s The Ice Road is one worth keeping an eye on, with the 69 year-old action star firmly in familiar territory as a trucker drawn into a dangerous situation. Netflix shelled out a lot of money to secure the rights, and as the only actor to headline two movies during the COVID-19 era that opened at number one domestically, Neeson’s drawing power remains undiminished.

Season 7 of Bosch is also on its way to Amazon, and the series has proven to be one of the platform’s most reliable performers since the very beginning. Disney Plus, meanwhile, has new episodes of Loki and Star Wars: The Bad Batch en route, with the latter in particular set to generate plenty of talking points in keeping with the first two installments, which have spawned a thousand theories already.

Dwayne Johnson Reportedly Thinks Black Adam Could Be The DCEU’s Best Movie Yet

What is the best movie to come out of the DCEU? As always, it’s completely dependent on each and every fan’s opinion, but most people would probably agree that it isn’t Suicide Squad. According to critics on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes it’s Wonder Woman, but audiences on the review aggregation site have bestowed Zack Snyder’s Justice League with the highest score.

Aquaman, Birds of Prey and Shazam! all have plenty of supporters as well, and there’s no reason why The Flash won’t hit big given that it features both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as Batman in a multiversal adventure. However, we’ve now heard from our sources – the same ones who told us Affleck would be returning for the Scarlet Speedster’s solo debut long before it was confirmed – that Dwayne Johnson believes Black Adam could turn out to be the one to beat.

Of course, as the producer and lead actor, he’ll be more confident than most that his superhero passion project will be able to deliver the goods, but we’re also talking about the world’s biggest movie star headlining an intergalactic space opera based on a comic book with decades of lore to draw inspiration from, so it possesses many key ingredients, and no shortage of potential, to find massive critical and commercial success.

Johnson’s blockbuster fare tends to please the crowds without garnering much in the way of widespread acclaim, but having spent fifteen years attached to Black Adam, you can guarantee that he’ll be pulling out all of the stops to ensure that it’s worth the wait. Although we won’t find out until next summer if it’ll go down in the history books as the very best that the DCEU has ever had to offer.

Captain America 4 Will Reportedly Feel Like A G.I. Joe Movie

The majority of Marvel Cinematic Universe projects, whether it’s the movies or latterly the TV shows, try to strike their own tone while still fitting into the standard formula that’s served the franchise so well over the last thirteen years. Sometimes the genres can shift dramatically in the space of the same series, though, as we saw with Chris Evans’ Captain America trilogy.

The First Avenger was an old fashioned adventure married to a period piece set in a heightened reality, while The Winter Soldier drew inspiration from the political espionage back catalogue, and Civil War was essentially an Avengers movie on a slightly smaller scale. Even The Falcon and the Winter Solider, which was technically a Captain America story, was a globetrotting buddy story heavily indebted to real-world themes.

Insider Daniel Richtman is now claiming that Anthony Mackie’s feature-length debut under the costume will draw inspiration from a much more unlikely source, with the tipster touting it as being comparable to a G.I. Joe blockbuster in terms of delivering big, broad, camp fun. While the idea of the largest brand in the industry looking to emulate a franchise that’s hardly set the world on fire is a very peculiar notion, it’s admittedly not the wildest thing we’ve ever heard.

After all, Stephen Sommers’ The Rise of Cobra was basically a live-action Team America played with a largely straight face, while Jon M. Chu’s Retaliation was a much more tongue-in-cheek militarized shoot em’ up. Of course, Captain America 4 will look to blaze its own trail, but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen the MCU lean into elevated absurdity on any sort of grand scale, so maybe Sam Wilson is the guy to make it happen.
