Audiences have been waiting so long for Free Guy that it originally started life as a Fox production, and was one of the few in-development titles to be kept alive after Disney swallowed up even more of the competition. Filming kicked off in May 2019, which was after Ryan Reynolds had shot buddy sequel Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, but that movie was released almost two months ago.

Shawn Levy’s video game-inspired blockbuster is finally coming to theaters on August 13th, where it’ll play exclusively for 45 days before being added to the Disney Plus library. That’s not a lot of time for a mega budget crowd-pleaser to maximize its earning potential, but we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Percy Jackson was being rebooted as a streaming service long before it was made official – that sequel talks are already happening behind the scenes.


New Images Revealed From Ryan Reynolds' Delayed Free Guy

20th Century Studios now exists as a Disney subsidiary, which provides the Mouse House with greater leeway to continue churning out franchise fare that doesn’t fall directly under their banner, and a high concept action comedy starring Ryan Reynolds that lends itself to all sorts of celebrity cameos and expansive world-building comes with plenty of potential for further adventures.

At the end of the day, though, it’s all about the profit margins, and we’ve been in this position before where sequels get announced and end up never happening. However, if Free Guy lives up to the early reactions that paint it as the summer’s biggest surprise, then audiences could respond in kind by propelling it to the sort of commercial heights that make more installments a prospect too hard to ignore for the studio.

Given his status and standing in the industry, Dwayne Johnson tends to get whatever he wants. One thing that’s become a recurring feature of his career, though, is for sequels to his box office hits being announced before eventually fading into nothingness.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, San Andreas, Baywatch and Rampage all had further installments either confirmed or teased, but it doesn’t look like any of them will be happening. Even Hobbs & Shaw 2 remains up for debate, when producer Kelly McCormick said it was a while away, and Johnson recently appeared to close the door on his continued involvement with the Fast & Furious franchise, even if spinoff sequels remain a firm possibility.

We’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Ben Affleck was returning as Batman in The Flash long before it was confirmed – that The Rock is hoping for Disney’s Jungle Cruise to act as the beginning of a blockbuster adventure trilogy, which would be fitting considering those Indiana Jones influences.

Johnson revealed a couple of weeks back that he’s already spoken to the Mouse House about a possible sequel, which additionally noted that co-star Emily Blunt had been officially drafted into his inner circle of regular collaborators that includes folks like Kevin Hart, Ryan Reynolds, producer Beau Flynn, writer Chris Morgan, filmmakers Brad Peyton and Rawson Marshall Thurber to name just a few, so he’s clearly keen to make more movies with the actress.

They’re both attached to Netflix’s comic book adaptation Ball & Chain, but should Jungle Cruise turn a decent profit at both the box office and on Disney Plus Premier Access, then the studio would be keen to move forward on a second escapade for Frank Wolff and Lily Houghton.

While it hasn’t reached the same levels of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s presumed involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man: No Way Home quite yet, by this time next year the chatter of Henry Cavill’s Superman showing up for a cameo appearance in the DCEU’s Black Adam may well have reached similar heights in terms of hype, anticipation and expectation.

We’ve heard on at least a dozen separate occasions that Cavill’s canonical Kal-El is posed to fly into the orbit of Dwayne Johnson’s antihero, and while it’s never come any closer to being made official, if you hear the same thing often enough then there might well be at least the tiniest element of truth to it.

Johnson and Cavill are familiar with each other, and The Witcher star’s manager Dany Garcia is producing both Black Adam and Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the latter of which has also been heavily touted as a potential destination for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel to make a triumphant return to the fold at long last.

In a new interview, another of Black Adam‘s producorial team teased the relentless Superman scuttlebutt, after Hiram Garcia admitted he knows full well just how much the fans would love to see it happen.

“Hard to say, but I know that would be incredible if it ever did happen. We certainly know the fans want it! All I can say is that we’re always listening to the fans and doing what we can!”

Cavill has had at least one movie remaining on his contract with Warner Bros. ever since Joss Whedon’s Justice League reshoots wrapped four years ago, and in the interim he’s been linked to every possible project under the sun. Black Adam has always felt like the safest and smartest bet, though, but the infuriating thing is that we probably won’t find out until it hits theaters on July 29th, 2022.

The fourth installment in the Star Trek Kelvin timeline was initially announced with S.J. Clarkson set to direct, and the story would see Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk reunite with his father George, as played by Chris Hemsworth in the prologue of J.J. Abrams’ opener via the same temporal shenanigans that allowed Leonard Nimoy to appear as Spock Prime in the first two chapters.

However, both of the Chrises eventually ended dropping out, although Pine was eventually convinced to return, only for Star Trek 4 to fall into developmental purgatory. WandaVision director Matt Shakman was recently hired to helm an untitled blockbuster that was being fast-tracked into production and had already been dated for a June 2023 release, and while it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the talk is that negotiations to reunite Abrams’ Enterprise crew are a priority.

We’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Discovery‘s Captain Pike was getting his own spinoff long before Strange New Worlds was announced – that Paramount are determined for Shakman’s Star Trek to bring the project full circle and have both Pine and Hemsworth on board to revisit the original concept of them teaming up for an intergalactic adventure.

Of course, this is entirely dependent on whether the stars agree to sign on the dotted line, and we haven’t heard a peep out of Star Trek 4 since Shakman was first confirmed for the director’s chair earlier this month. The fact a script is already in place written by Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet would seem to indicate both the filmmaker and the studio know where the narrative is headed, though, and reuniting two of Hollywood’s pre-eminent Chrises would be one way to guarantee strong box office numbers given their respective levels of star power and popularity.

Dwayne Johnson tantalizingly revealed that while Superman and the majority of the DCEU’s superheroes operate under a strict no-kill policy, unless of course we’re talking about Ben Affleck’s Batman who definitely didn’t murder any hapless henchmen according to Zack Snyder, Black Adam most certainly does not.

As the world’s biggest movie star, Johnson has a carefully curated on and offscreen persona to protect, but one of the side effects is that it’s been a long time since he took any creative risks. While Black Adam certainly isn’t a risk seeing as it features one of the most popular actors on the planet diving into cinema’s most bankable genre, the comic book adaptation sounds as though it’ll have harder edges than much of his recent work.

In a new interview, producer Hiram Garcia teased that a PG-13 rating isn’t going to compromise Teth-Adam’s quest for vengeance, and he even pulled out the standard comparison to The Dark Knight for good measure when revealing the titular antihero’s body count isn’t going to be affected by the restrictions of what can be shown on film.

“This will be PG-13, but it’s not because we’re being forced to be PG-13. The way we devised the movie, it just wasn’t necessary to make it R, and it’s something we discussed because we did want to be true to the character. The truth is that we felt we were properly able to represent the edge and power that Black Adam has without needing to go to an R rating. This movie can thrive in a PG-13 space and that’s great for us because we want to introduce Black Adam to as many people as possible. No one ever felt like The Dark Knight was too soft. That was probably one of the hardest PG-13s you’ve ever seen. That’s the way we’ve approached our PG-13, and by no means has that rating limited our kill count!”

Obviously, we’re not expecting to see Dwayne Johnson popping heads and tearing his enemies limb from limb, but having been attached to the role for close to fifteen years, he’ll know better than most how important it is to reflect Black Adam’s comic book roots as someone painted in many shades of gray.

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen The Rock cut loose and venture outside of his wheelhouse as the modern era’s premiere family-friendly action hero, so the prospect of Black Adam letting him throw the shackles off is a very exciting notion indeed.

Netflix and the theatrical industry have always had something of a frosty relationship, with the streaming service viewed as a noisy upstart looking to shift a business model that’s existed for a century into new and uncharted territory. While that’s true to a certain extent with more big budget blockbusters and prestige dramas than ever before never seeing the inside of a cinema, deals have been reached in the past.

Movies like Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma played exclusively on the big screen before migrating to Netflix, which was admittedly partly due to the rules in place at the time that meant a film couldn’t be considered for Academy Awards recognition if it hadn’t scored a theatrical release.

However, Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead most definitely wasn’t gunning for Best Picture, but scored Netflix’s widest ever rollout after premiering one week ahead of time on up to 600 screens, although it only managed to pull in little over a million dollars at the box office, which was admittedly still good enough for a place in that weekend’s Top 10.

We’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us the Snyder Cut of Justice League was heading to HBO Max long before it was made official – that the filmmaker is reportedly pushing for Army of the Dead 2 to get a full release, which would presumably mean thousands of screens nationwide.

The dynamic between the theatrical industry and streaming has become more contentious than ever during the COVID-19 era, as Scarlett Johansson will surely attest, so it’s difficult to imagine Netflix losing out on that sweet, sweet viewership data and social media buzz by giving away such a hotly-anticipated sequel ahead of time. Then again, the business is more fluid than ever right now, so it can’t be ruled out by any stretch of the imagination, either.

Several notable actors, including Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, and Scarlett Johansson, are upset about their movies releasing on streaming services alongside a theatrical release. 

The COVID-19 Pandemic created a unique situation for the film industry. Covid restrictions made it impossible for fans to see movies in theaters, leading to several significant titles being delayed. However, some titles were sent straight to streaming services, giving fans the chance to see the movies in the comfort of their homes. 

The talent vs. studio battle that is brewing is going to be fascinating. Between Denzel being pissed about LITTLE THINGS going on HBO Max, Wahlberg not happy about knowing about the INFINITE release till it was announce and now ScarJo's suit seems to be tip of the iceberg.

— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) July 29, 2021

This was a win for fans anxious to enjoy new movies without risking their health, but it had mixed responses from the actors. According to Deadline senior film reporter Justin Kroll, Denzel Washington was upset about Little Things releasing directly on HBO Max. Krol also reported that Mark Wahlberg was unaware of Infinite releasing on streaming services until it was publicly announced and was unhappy with the situation.

Most recently, Scarlett Johansson filed a lawsuit against Disney earlier this week that alleges her contract was breached when Disney released Black Widow simultaneously on Disney+ and in theaters. The suit claims Johansson agreed that her salary would be primarily based on the film’s box office performance and that Disney was aware of this agreement.

Disney has since responded, claiming there is no merit to the suit and that the organization fully complied with Johansson’s contract. It is unclear how the situation will be resolved, but it is a sign of the growing rift between movie studios and the actors. In the meantime fans can enjoy seeing blockbuster movies from their living room.

Scarlett Johansson’s bold decision to sue Disney for breach of contract after Black Widow was awarded a hybrid release on Disney Plus Premier Access without her contract being altered is looking like it might be the catalyst for all-out war between Hollywood’s A-list talent and the studios responsible for shuffling their movies onto streaming day-and-date.

The Mouse House were quick to publicly dismiss Johansson’s lawsuit with verbiage deriding her as greedy having already been paid $20 million for starring as Natasha Romanoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s feature length Phase Four opener, but a new report now claims that Emma Stone is considering walking down the same path in regards to Cruella.

As an Academy Award winning A-lister who executive produced and headlined the 101 Dalmations origin story, Stone would have had profit percentage bonuses and back-end clauses built into her deal as well. Cruella has so far earned a respectable $225 million at the box office, but much like Black Widow, that earning potential was hampered by Premier Access.

The report also names Jungle Cruise star Emily Blunt as another potentially disgruntled employee, but you get the distinct feeling that someone of Dwayne Johnson’s standing and star power would have had all of his bases covered before he agreed to his latest mega budget adventure taking a serious financial hit from losing out on a ton of revenue, which Disney ironically get to pocket a larger share of seeing as they don’t have to split the profits with theater chains and distributors.

Cruella came and went in the blink of an eye, but if Stone does launch a claim, then we could be set for some seriously explosive exchanges between the industry’s biggest names and most notable studios.

Netflix’s drive to become the leading source of video game adaptations over the last few years has been commendable, so say the least. Castlevania, Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, to name just a few, have (or are about to) all been repurposed by the streaming service either into episodic affairs or full-fledged movies, and the streak looks set to continue for the foreseeable future.

As reported by Variety earlier this week, Pokémon will soon be finding a new home on the platform in the form of a live-action series. While little is currently known, Lucifer executive producer Joe Henderson is said to be involved and WGTC has since learned from sources that Netflix intends to funnel $200m per season into the lucrative licensed show. What’s more, characters such as Red and Blue from the original games are said to be making an appearance, though these all remain unconfirmed.

Apparently not content with just delivering what’s essentially sounding much like more of the same family-friendly entertainment as 2019’s Detective Pikachu, we’ve subsequently learned that further escapades in the Pocket Monster world are being worked on behind the scenes. Details on this one are even more scarce than that mentioned above, though we are told that the untitled project has no connection to Warner Bros.’ aforementioned film. Whether this, as well as the series, will have any narrative connection or otherwise, however, is unclear, though suffice it to say, that the two being greenlit at the same time can’t be a coincidence.

Deadpool is on his way to the MCU, and he’s sure to make a huge impact. While the Fantastic Four and (eventually) the X-Men are getting rebooted, Marvel won’t want to mess with Wade Wilson. Ryan Reynolds is returning to his beloved role for Deadpool 3, which is being written now and is expected to start shooting next year. Fans are eager to know just how integrated DP will be with the wider franchise. Well, from what we’re hearing, he’ll be a key player in where the MCU goes from here.

Our trusted sources – the same ones who told us about DC’s Black-led Superman reboot before that was announced – have informed us that Deadpool will be a major part of the MCU’s incoming multiverse arc. Loki finally introduced the concept of the multiverse into this universe, and it’s set to be further explored in a big way in at least three projects due over the next year. Namely, What If…?, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The second two of these projects are set to crossover with other non-MCU Marvel universes, such as previous Spider-Man franchises, so this whole storyline is likely how Reynolds will hop over from the Fox universe into the Marvel Studios one. And seeing as he’s the only multiversal character to stick around as a lead in the MCU – so far as we know – it’s no surprise to hear that he’ll be a significant part of this arc. Which likely means a lot of crossovers are coming his way.

There has been talk of Wade maybe showing up in Doctor Strange 2, which definitely feels highly plausible if far from confirmed at this time. But with Deadpool 3 not arriving for a while yet, giving Reynolds a cameo somewhere beforehand, would cause fans to go crazy and remind them that things are about to get wild. We’ll bring you more on the Merc’s MCU future as and when it comes in.

The advent of Marvel’s Disney Plus shows has appeared to have stretched the already tenuous connection between the MCU and the old-school Marvel Television series to breaking point, with both WandaVision and Loki seemingly disregarding Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from canon. But, in the long run, fans are hoping that the likes of AoS will be folded into the franchise properly, thanks to old favorites coming back in other projects. For instance, say, Ghost Rider.

Giant Freakin Robot is reporting that Marvel has plans to bring back Gabriel Luna as the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider. The outlet was unable to reveal anything further about this intriguing potential comeback, but they speculate that he’s unlikely to appear in an incoming project like Spider-Man: No Way Home and instead he could turn up in something that’s coming over the next couple of years. e.g. Secret Invasion. This would make sense, assuming those rumors that AoS‘ Chloe Bennet is reprising Quake in that show are accurate.

Bringing Luna back in the MCU would be the least Marvel could do after what happened to his planned Ghost Rider spinoff. Fans really took to Luna’s incarnation of the Spirit of Vengeance when he debuted in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4, and so he was given his own vehicle that was to arrive on Hulu. It was all set to go… before the dissolution of Marvel Television prevented it from ever reaching screens.

This news comes hot on the heels of The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus again making clear that he’d love to play Ghost Rider – as in the Johnny Blaze version, famously portrayed by Nicolas Cage in the two Sony movies. Well, in a franchise where we’ve got two Captain Americas, two Black Widows and more, why can’t we have two Ghost Riders? Maybe Reedus and Luna could team up in a supernatural buddy-cop movie/show? You can’t say you wouldn’t want to watch that.

Let’s pretend for a second that the spate of rumors swirling around the endpoint of Phase Four are 100% true, and we’re slowly building towards an adaptation of Secret Wars. By that logic, the Marvel Cinematic Universe would require a huge roster of heroes and a multitude of teams in order to emerge victorious on Battleworld, so there might be something to the fact more units than ever are currently on their way to the mythology.

As well as the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ll be meeting the Eternals in November, Jon Watts’ Fantastic Four is in early development, the X-Men are getting rebooted eventually and ten members of the Young Avengers either exist in the MCU already, are coming in the next couple of years or have been hinted at.

That’s a sizeable selection of squads, not even counting the Defenders, X-Force or anybody else, so it makes sense that we’d be hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Captain America 4 was in the works with Anthony Mackie long before it was confirmed – that Loki and Sylvie are reportedly being eyed as members of the New Avengers.

Tom Hiddleston’s solo series nudged the trickster further into the realms of outright heroism than he’s ever been before, and the fact he and Sylvie were responsible for causing the multiversal chaos in the first place would surely leave them desperate to make amends, especially if an onslaught of Kang the Conqueror variants start making their way to the MCU to wreak havoc.

After inadvertently starting it, having Loki and Sylvie fight side-by-side with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a final stand against Kang could be the redemption arc to end all redemption arcs.

Time travel can often be a mindf*ck if you think about it too hard and try to unpick the rules and regulations, so most of the time it’s best to just go with it. The Marvel Cinematic Universe toyed with the concept in Avengers: Endgame, which suited the narrative for the Infinity Saga’s final chapter, but Disney Plus series Loki has taken a substantially bigger swing.

Tom Hiddleston’s solo show has rewritten the rules of the MCU as we know them, establishing that everything we’ve seen unfold since the summer of 2008 took place on the Sacred Timeline. Now that Sylvie let her desire for revenge get the best of her and killed He Who Remains, the multiverse has been blown wide open and there’s any number of variants and alternate realities now in play.

In a new interview, Loki creator and lead writer Michael Waldron was asked how there could be so many timelines if there’s only ever been a single Sacred one, and the scribe tried his best to unpack and explain how it works without having to tie himself in knots or compromise any canon moving forward.

Okay, The best I can explain it is our approach with time travel was the philosophy basically that time is always happening. So there are infinite instances of time always occurring at once. So you and I are having this conversation right now. There’s another instance of us having this conversation ten seconds ago. There’s another instance of time of us having this conversation ten seconds in the future. Generally, those three instances, you could literally say they’re all different universes in a way different timelines, are all the same. There are minute little fluctuations in each instance of time.

So in you and I’s conversation, five times out of ten, I pick up and I say, ‘Hello’. And four times out of ten, I say, ‘Hey, nice to meet you’. And then maybe one time out of ten, I’d say, ‘Hey man, f*ck you. I don’t want to do this interview’. And that’s just how time works. There’s always like different permutations and instances happening. The TVA has their own barometer, their own gauge of what constitutes a deviation from the baseline, the way it’s supposed to go. The way it went that produced He Who Remains. That is their baseline. And so they are constantly calculating, ‘Okay, we see how time has always…’. If you zoomed in on the timeline, it wouldn’t necessarily look like a straight line.

It might look like almost the intertwined strands of a rope fluctuating and spiking here and there.When it becomes a problem for the TVA is when, according to their own rules, when could something branch off in a way that it could actually produce a new timeline that could produce a new version of He Who Remains? That is the practical thing that they’re guarding against. Does that answer your question?”

Does that clear things up? Sort of, not really and maybe just a little bit all at once. Time travel is a nightmare for any writer, especially one like Waldron, who used it as the basis for a six-episode project set in the world’s biggest franchise knowing full well the decisions he made would impact both the theatrical and streaming slate for years to come.

That’s a daunting position for anyone to be in, but we could be seeing some subtle changes made to the whats and whys as Phase Four progresses to iron out any kinks.

More adventures in the Dead Space universe could be on the cards.

The series, long thought deceased following the release of critical and commercial failure Dead Space 3 back in 2013, has received a much-deserved new lease on life this year thanks to EA’s recent announcement that the first game in the franchise is getting a remake. With original creator Visceral Games having long since closed shop, the publisher’s first-party Motive Studio (Star Wars: Squadrons) has been brought in to handle the project. Naught but a cinematic teaser trailer confirming Isaac Clarke’s return has been shown so far, but suffice it to say, that fans are already eager to see more.

While we wait for more information on that front, however, other developments are taking place elsewhere. WGTC has learned from sources that Netflix intends to capitalize on the renewed interest in Dead Space by producing and releasing a new show based on the IP.

Due to its infancy, it’s not immediately clear if this venture – assuming it reaches fruition – will result in a live-action or animated adaptation, but the latter is probably more likely, if only because a precedent already exists. For those not aware, two CGI films aimed at expanding upon the history of humanity’s encounter with the Necromorphs, (Aftermath and Downfall, released in 2011 and 2008 respectively), were released at the height of Dead Space‘s popularity. Ultimately, we’re unable to say with any certainty what shape it’ll take but as always, we’ll keep you posted with more details as and when they surface.

Dead Space Remake is in development for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC. See here for everything we know so far.

Remember Midnight in the Switchgrass, the latest in the never-ending line of Bruce Willis VOD thrillers? Really, you don’t? It only came out a week ago. It’s okay if you don’t, because it was pretty terrible and about as bland as they come, but the movie’s director Randall Emmett may have just confirmed Sylvester Stallone’s involvement in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Emmett may have only made his directorial debut on Midnight in the Switchgrass, but he’s an expert when it comes to working with former A-listers in B-tier genre territory. As well as collaborating with Bruce Willis on ten occasions, the filmmaker was also involved in Stallone’s Rambo, the Escape Plan trilogy and Backtrace. During a recent Q&A session, Emmett seemingly revealed that Sly would be back as Stakar Ogord in James Gunn’s threequel when discussing his friend’s upcoming projects.

Stallone and Gunn have clearly hit it off after the action icon agreed to voice King Shark in The Suicide Squad, and rumors of Stakar’s comeback are a regular occurrence when we all gather around the water cooler of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 speculation. It would be a waste of a cameo and a post-credits scene if it never amounted to anything more than that, without even mentioning the chatter he could even end up getting his own spinoff out of the equation.

The good news is that cameras are set to start rolling on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 before the year is out, so we won’t have that much longer to wait for an official confirmation or denial.

Scarlett Johansson’s Tower Of Terror Reportedly On Hold After Disney Lawsuit

Little over a month ago, it was announced that Scarlett Johansson was signed to star in and produce a Tower of Terror movie for Disney, which would be in keeping with the studio’s recent approach to big budget theme park adaptations.

Jungle Cruise hits theaters and Premiere Access today, boasting a high concept and the star-powered pairing of Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, while acclaimed filmmaker Justin Simien’s The Haunted Mansion recently recruited two hugely talented stars in LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish to play the lead roles.

Tower of Terror occupies the middle ground, then, with Johansson being a two-time Academy Award nominee regarded as a phenomenal actress, who also happens to be an A-list movie star with a solid box office track record, thanks largely to her tenure as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Natasha Romanoff.

However, we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Ben Affleck was returning as Batman in The Flash long before it was confirmed – that any and all development on Tower of Terror has been halted in the wake of Johansson launching legal action against Disney for Black Widow’s hybrid release.

A Tower of Terror movie has been floating around the studio since 2015, but Johansson’s involvement was only made public towards the end of June, so it isn’t clear how far along the project was in terms of writing, design or even cast and crew members, but it wouldn’t be a shocking development either.

It’s not as if Disney would find themselves sued, offer a scathing rebuttal and then allow Scarlett Johansson to simply carry on with Tower of Terror as if nothing had happened, creating another potential point of contention between the warring parties.

The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken the theatrical industry to its very core, and the box office is still a long way away from recovering. Almost eighteen months have passed since the world was changed irrevocably, and only three Hollywood blockbusters have managed to earn in excess of $400 million globally since end of 2019.

Bad Boys for Life had the benefit of arriving in January, but since the COVID-19 era began, only Godzilla vs. Kong and Fast & Furious 9 have managed to hit those heights, with the ninth chapter in The Fast Saga way out in front with over $620 million and counting. Thanks to a Disney Plus Premier Access release, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Widow realistically didn’t stand a chance of matching the franchise’s usual numbers, but it’s still resulted in star Scarlett Johansson filing a lawsuit against her paymasters.

We’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Luke Skywalker was returning to Star Wars long before The Mandalorian‘s Season 2 finale – that Johansson was reportedly of the belief that Black Widow could have reached the fabled billion-dollar mark if it wasn’t for the pandemic and Premier Access.

Looking at the facts, though, it seems unlikely. Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home are the only MCU movies to reach a billion that didn’t feature Tony Stark, and the latter two had the added bonus of arriving on either side of Avengers: Endgame, one of the most hotly-anticipated titles in history.

Would Black Widow have made a ton of money were it to hit theaters during certain and precedented times? Absolutely, but even for one of the MCU’s most popular characters, a billion is a bit of a stretch.

Warner Bros. sent shockwaves through the industry when the studio announced the entire slate of 2021 movies were debuting on HBO Max the same day they hit theaters, leading to some big names blasting the call, including Dune director Denis Villenueve and golden boy Christopher Nolan. However, they never got sued for it.

That makes Scarlett Johansson’s decision to pursue legal action against Disney all the more noteworthy, especially when it’s come weeks after Black Widow landing on Disney Plus Premier Access. As a matter of principle it’s understandable, but we’re still talking about someone who took top billing and an executive producer’s credit in return for a $15 million upfront salary, and the fact the actress filed a lawsuit would indicate there’s an awful lot of money left on the table she believes that she’s owed.

The Mouse House have already publicly responded, but it’s a messy situation to see play out in front of the world. As you can see below, though, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have the longtime Natasha Romanoff’s back.

Scarlett Johansson suing Marvel is a terrible look for Disney. They really should renegotiate these deals as they didn’t reflect the company’s enormous shift to streaming. The thing is Disney still benefits from the shift but the talent doesn’t.

Heading into this weekend, Black Widow had brought in just under $320 million at the box office, after suffering the steepest second frame drop in MCU history. Like most of the franchise’s biggest names, Johansson’s contract would have included performance-related bonuses and back-end profit participation deals, and Cate Shortland’s prequel clearly isn’t going to come close to matching the sort of theatrical earnings it would have managed were it not for both the pandemic and Premier Access.

What happens from here will be very interesting to see unfold, and it’s fortunate for Disney’s money men that Black Widow marked her final outing in the MCU, or an even bigger can of worms could have been opened.

Jul 29, 2021 10:40 am

The Child’s Play franchise is currently kicking ass. The 2019 reboot vastly exceeded expectations, boasted an excellent performance from Mark Hamill as Chucky, and a sequel is reportedly in development. But longtime fans of ‘classic’ Chucky will soon have something to celebrate too, as this October sees the release of new show Chucky on Syfy.

This is helmed by original creator Don Mancini, boasts the vocal talents of Brad Dourif, and will be a direct sequel to 2017 movie Cult of Chucky. We got our first official trailer during [email protected] and all indications are that it’s going to make the killer doll’s fans extremely happy. Mancini also seems very pleased with the way things panned out, which is nice to see after his obvious annoyance that the movie reboot went ahead without his involvement.

To stoke the hype machine he recently posted an image on Instagram of him sat on a bed with Jennifer Tilly and Fiona Dourif in revealing outfits that he appropriately captioned “Perks of the job”. Tilly also put a photo up, showing off the trashy-motel-chic look that made Tiffany a horror icon. Check them out:

The official synopsis for the show says that Chucky will show up at a yard sale in an “idyllic American town” that soon experiences a series of horrific murders (I’m betting the two events are linked!). Over the course of the show we’ll uncover this town’s dark secrets, which may be linked to Chucky’s origins, and show how he turned into such a sadistic monster.

We also know Syfy has loosened their restrictions specifically for this show, with Mancini explaining that Chucky can drop 10 F-Bombs per episode. That’s great, because as we all know, Chucky isn’t happy about being neutered.

Chucky will premiere on Syfy on October 12th, 2021.

Following the events of Loki, we know that Jonathan Majors is the big bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four, but we haven’t met Kang the Conqueror just yet. He Who Remains was the sole survivor of the first multiversal war that threatened to destroy time as we knew it, but after Sylvie let her revenge do the talking, things are about to get messy.

Countless variants of Kang are on their way to the MCU, and having teased that he was one of the benevolent ones, we could be seeing every aspect of reality infiltrated by a revolving door of time traveling warlords. That isn’t good news for anyone, but we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Captain America 4 was in the works with Anthony Mackie long before it was confirmed – that one of these variants might even end up encountering a certain En Sabah Nur.

The X-Men are in the midst of being rebooted behind the scenes, so their introduction into the mythology will be a slow rollout rather than a blockbuster movie right out of the gate, and all it would take is a little nod towards the past of Marvel Comics to have Kang and the future Apocalypse become acquainted.

When En Sabah Nur was born 5000 years ago in Ancient Egypt, the land was ruled by Pharaoh Rama-Tut, who was of course Kang the Conqueror, who’d traveled from the future to handpick the future Apocalypse as his heir because he knew he was the very first mutant on Earth and would go on to become one of the most powerful beings the world had ever seen. We’re getting Kang variants and the X-Men in the not too distant future, so it isn’t the craziest thing to imagine a visit to a timeline that sets the seeds for Apocalypse further down the line.

itemprop=”headline name”>Loki Will Reportedly Run For More Than 2 Seasons

By

Scott Campbell

Jul 29, 2021 10:28 am

Much like the mythology itself, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Disney Plus exclusives tend to be fluid in nature. Similar to how some standalone movies franchises will get one, two, three or more sequels, some of the episodic shows are poised to run for multiple seasons, while others will be one-and-done efforts.

The fact WandaVision‘s final episode was called “The Series Finale” would indicate that we’re not heading back to Westview, and the announcement of Captain America 4 with Anthony Mackie the very same day The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s finale aired would seem to point at a solo movie telling the next chapter of Sam Wilson’s story.

That means Loki is the only one so far to be renewed, and we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us War Machine was getting his own show long before Armor Wars was announced – that a second batch of episodes more than likely won’t mark the end of the line for the Asgardian trickster.

Depending on how long Phase Four continues, and how heavily Kang the Conqueror impacts the overarching narrative, Loki could squeeze at least a third or perhaps fourth season in before the epic crossover event draws the latest chapter in the MCU to a close, whether it be another Avengers blockbuster or not.

Looking at the upcoming roster, something like Moon Knight or Ms. Marvel lends itself better to multi-season storytelling than Secret Invasion or Armor Wars, but as the project that initially caused the multiversal chaos that’ll define Phase Four, Loki is more closely tied to the broadest strokes of the narrative than the rest, so it could realistically become an annual event.

The Best Brad Pitt Movies

itemprop=”headline name”>The Best Brad Pitt Movies

By

Carrie O’Hara

Jul 29, 2021 10:26 am

Brad Pitt has been gracing the silver screen since his first uncredited appearance as “Boy at the Beach” in the ultra-famous 1987 movie Hunk. His career began with brief roles in early ’90s hits like Thelma and Louise, but he soon established himself as a Hollywood star.

Here are ten spectacular Brad Pitt films to watch at your earliest convenience.

Moneyball (2011)

Brad Pitt is known for his sexy roles, and it doesn’t get much sexier than portraying Oakland A’s General Manager and former Major League journeyman outfielder Billy Beane. With a dashingly nerdy Jonah Hill by his side, Pitt commands the screen throughout this feel-good story of a mediocre baseball team that surprises everyone by winning their division and then promptly losing their first playoff series. Former MLB shortstop Royce Clayton portrays the more-famous shortstop Miguel Tejada, Chris Pratt shows up in the dugout playing catcher-turned-first baseman Scott Hatteberg, Oakland A’s manager Art Howe is lovingly portrayed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robin Wright plays Billy Beane’s ex-wife. Pitt was nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award.

Se7en (1995)

A young Brad Pitt teams up with the older Morgan Freeman in this David Fincher police thriller to investigate an especially heinous serial killer (played by Kevin Spacey) who chooses victims and stages his murders to parallel the seven deadly sins. You know a movie is serious when it replaces a letter in the title with a numerical digit, and Se7en brings the pain all the way until its shocking end. Pitt and Fincher would go on to make a two more movies together—you might find one of them later on this list—but none as gruesome and visceral as Se7en. Try not to lose your head!

Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

The ultimate ensemble crime caper, the 2001 version of Ocean’s Eleven remade the 1960 Rat Pack classic and spawned an entire series of films to come. Stealing $150 million from Las Vegas casinos sounded more impressive twenty years ago than it does now in the age of billionaires, but the cast is worth the price. Brad Pitt doesn’t take the lead role of Danny Ocean—claimed here by George Clooney—but he still plays an important role as Ocean’s right-hand man, Rusty Ryan.

Pitt would go on to appear in Ocean’s Twelve and Thirteen, but the original is where it’s at. Or at least, the remake of the original.

Burn After Reading (2008)

“It was just lying there.” This hilarious Coen Brothers espionage spoof aged very well in our current era of idiotic wannabe spies and disaffected government agents. Clooney leads another star-studded cast, alongside Tilda Swinton, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, and J.K. Simmons, but Brad Pitt steals the show as a total moron who finds supposedly classified intelligence material and tries to sell it to the Russians. McDormand, who teams with her Hard Bodies Gym coworker Pitt, plays a tall, broad-shouldered woman who wants money for facial surgery; unlike the rest of the characters, she gets what she wants in the end.

The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford (2007)

Now here is a movie with real star power and sex appeal. Brad Pitt plays the legendary outlaw Jesse James, who is followed, courted, worshipped, and eventually killed by the coward, played by Casey Affleck. The film was a box office flop, but the more you get to know it, the better it looks. Jesse James was an evil bastard who killed a lot of people, but we see little of that in this gorgeous, understated portrait of a 34-year-old man facing his own death, certain it will come but not knowing when or where.

A River Runs Through It (1992)

Speaking of young male love, A River Runs Through It presents Brad Pitt as a newly-blossoming flower. Set in 1920s Montana and centered around fly fishing in the rivers where they grew up, this film chronicles the back-and-forth relationships of two brothers, one who stays and one who goes. Pitt is the one who stays, while Craig Sheffer plays the city boy who goes off to Chicago. Their father is a Presbyterian minister played by Tom Skerritt, of course, who would immediately go on to headline the Twin Peaks knockoff, small-town crime show Picket Fences. Gorgeous scenery abounds.

12 Monkeys (1995)

If you love Terry Gilliam’s dystopic 1985 film Brazil, you’ll recognize a lot of aging and recycled effects in Gilliam’s decade-later virus-and-time-travel mind-bender 12 Monkeys. Bruce Willis is sent back in time to prevent human calamity—stop me if you’ve heard this one before—where he promptly gets locked in the psych ward with fellow patient Brad Pitt. The mutating virus apocalypse that drives the plot of the film hits a little close to home in the age of COVID-19, but the performances of Willis and Pitt stand the test of time. If you love time loops and manic geniuses, this is the Brad Pitt film to watch first.

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

Pitt and Quentin Tarantino have worked together across decades, from Tarantino writing 1993’s True Romance to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in 2019. But their best collaboration focuses on killing Nazis.

Inglourious Basterds seems more relevant today than it did when it debuted 12 years ago—maybe Pitt really is a time-traveling genius—and this one is also a lot of violent fun. That’s par for the course from Quentin Tarantino, but this time with more real-world significance. Also, Pitt wears a mustache that makes us all feel better about ourselves.

Interview With The Vampire (1994)

A ravishing young Pitt twinks it up in this stylish gothic vampire film based on the novel by Anne Rice. Tom Cruise plays the lead vampire Lestat, but his performance pales in comparison to Brad Pitt as Louis de Pointe du Lac. In this blockbuster hit, Pitt stars as the titular vampire sitting for the interview in modern-day San Francisco, while the events he narrates took place in New Orleans during the 1790s. What was it like to be a moody and misunderstood teenager in the 1990s? What happens when a dashing Tom Cruise takes your humanity and turns you into a creature of the night? Watch this classic film and find out.

Fight Club (1999)

“I want you to hit me as hard as you can.” Still the most iconic line Brad Pitt has delivered on screen. Fight Club changed cinema. Pitt and Fincher teamed for their best collaboration to make the ultimate move of the ’90s. Everyone wanted to be Tyler Durden. Many still do.

itemprop=”headline name”>Ben Affleck And Michael Keaton Will Reportedly Fight In The Flash

By

Scott Campbell

Jul 29, 2021 10:24 am

By the time The Flash hits theaters in November of next year, Ben Affleck will be 50 and Michael Keaton will have recently turned 71, comfortably making them the two oldest actors to have suited up to play Batman in a live-action blockbuster. By comparison, leading man Ezra Miller hits 30 in September 2022, so even if he wasn’t playing Barry Allen he’d probably still be able to beat his co-stars in a foot race.

Despite their advancing years, the prospect of Zack Snyder’s middle-aged Caped Crusader interacting with Tim Burton’s elderly Dark Knight is a tantalizing prospect, one that seemed impossible just a couple of years ago for a number of reasons. Affleck’s time under the cape and cowl looked to be over, The Flash was mired in development hell with no means of escape and the thought of Keaton returning to the fold would have been ludicrous.

However, not only will we be seeing the two generational Bruce Waynes sharing the screen, but tipster Mikey Sutton is claiming that they might even indulge in a bit of fisticuffs. Naturally, it’s not as if Affleck’s hulking Crossfit Batman is simply going to wade up to a septuagenarian and punch him in the face, with Sutton hinting Keaton will get the upper hand to showcase both his veteran guile, extensive experience and superior intellect.

After all, if The Flash‘s multiverse is still linear in nature, Keaton will have been patrolling the streets of Gotham for well over 30 years if not 40 or more, so he’d have a significant edge over Affleck in that department. It would certainly be one way to instantly make it clear that Burton’s Batman isn’t back to be a passenger.

x

History has shown that audiences love high concept sci-fi, big budget fantasy and beefy dudes beating the ever-loving sh*t out of each other, and on that basis alone, the latest trailer for Season 2 of AppleTV+ series See looks to deliver everything you could possible want and a whole lot more.

Apple’s entry into the top tier of the streaming wars has been slow to say the least, which is largely because the platform doesn’t possess a lot of in-house content with the ability to capture the imagination of either the public or online community. See bucked that trend to a certain degree by delivering plenty of star power in the form of Jason Momoa and some epic production values, while the addition of Dave Bautista to Season 2 has instantly doubled the levels of grizzled badassery.

See takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the vast majority of the human population lost their vision, forcing humanity to evolve as an almost entirely blind species, to the extent that those with the ability are deemed as heretics. Naturally, evil forces are looking to seize that power for themselves, forcing Momoa’s fantastically-named Baba Voss to protect his family at all costs because his daughter Haniwa can see.

Bautista has been cast as Momoa’s brother, and you can only imagine the volume of protein that was consumed in that household when they were growing up, looking at the sheer size of them and the ease with which they dispatch their enemies in the footage. Season 2 of See is coming to AppleTV+ on August 27th, and the great news for fans is that a third run of episodes has already been ordered, so the journey is far from over.

itemprop=”headline name”>Chris Chibnall And Jodie Whittaker Leaving Doctor Who In 2022

By

Jonathan Wright

Jul 29, 2021 10:13 am

After months of speculation, the official Twitter account for Doctor Who has announced that both Chris Chibnall, the current showrunner, and the actress behind the thirteenth incarnation of the titular character are leaving the BBC’s popular sci-fi series in 2022.

The show’s crew is currently busy filming season 13, where Jodie, alongside Mandip Gill and newcomer John Bishop, will embark on their most ambitious adventure yet. After the tumultuous finale of season 12, “The Timeless Children,” and learning that the Doctor is not Gallifreyan, the latest incarnation of the character now faces an identity crisis and has to unravel the mystery sitting at the heart of the Time Lords’ treacherous lie.

But whatever Chibnall has planned for this particular story arc, it seems as though the EP has to wrap it up in the upcoming run. Indeed, the duo is saying goodbye to Doctor Who next year. Whittaker still has a shortened season of 6 episodes to film, and then, the cast and crew will return for 3 feature-length specials that conclude her story in 2022.

Whittaker herself has addressed the announcement with a statement, saying:

“My heart is so full of love for this show, for the team who make it, for the fans who watch it and for what it has brought to my life. I cannot thank Chris enough for entrusting me with his incredible stories. We knew that we wanted to ride this wave side by side, and pass on the baton together. So here we are, weeks away from wrapping on the best job I have ever had.”

Chibnall also revealed his thoughts, adding:

“Jodie and I made a ‘three series and out’ pact with each other at the start of this once-in-a-lifetime blast. So now our shift is done, and we’re handing back the Tardis keys. Jodie’s magnificent, iconic Doctor has exceeded all our high expectations.”

Over the past few months, we’d heard numerous reports that Whittaker was leaving Doctor Who after her third outing, with speculation running wild among Whovians as to who might replace her. Now, it seems that the showrunner is also retiring after only four years. Considering the fact that his predecessor Steven Moffat stayed on for ten years, though, this decision is peculiar, to say the least.

Still, six one-hour episodes and a trilogy of specials, which will supposedly consist of a linear narrative and do away with one-parters, should be enough to bring the Thirteenth’s story to a satisfying conclusion.

Netflix’s new romantic drama The Last Letter from Your Lover is a breakout hit in both the U.S. and around the globe

FlixPatrol reports The Last Letter from Your Lover was the third most popular film on Netflix worldwide this week and the second most popular in the U.S.

The film released on July 23 in the U.S. and will roll out to other markets over the next week. Despite the limited release, FlixPatrol ranked the film as the fifth most popular movie worldwide on Netflix the day after its release. It quickly reached the number three spot, where it has remained since Monday.

Based on Jojo Moyes’ 2012 novel of the same name, the romance film stars British actress Felicity Jones as a reporter that uncovers the epistolary remains of a love that mirrors her own life.

In the U.S., The Last Letter from Your Lover surpasses the entirety of the Twilight saga. Recently added to the streaming platform, the films rank number three to seven on FlixPatrol’s US charts. Blood Red Sky, Peter Thorwarth’s vampiric horror film, holds the global and domestic top spot of the week.

FlixPatrol launched in April 2019. The site filters publicly available data on streaming services’ trending series and regional popularity, then synthesizes data into an in-house algorithm to rank popular services’ best-performing TVs and movies, Fast Company reports.

Fans of Marvel’s Avengers‘ resident Asgardian can finally show their love of the MCU thanks to the game’s latest premium store addition. Despite it having revealed and released several costumes for other members of the superhero team based on their appearance in Avengers: Endgame, similar treatment for Thor has been noticeably missing, prompting many players to wonder if the idea had been scrapped entirely.

As it turns out, that definitely wasn’t the case, as developer Crystal Dynamics pulled back the curtain on the Thunder God’s new (or familiar, depending on your familiarity with the films) look yesterday. Sporting a costume nearly identical to that worn by Chris Hemsworth during the Infinity Stones saga, the only real major difference between the two is their facial features. It’s worth noting, however, that both facial and head hair has been styled to mimic Hemsworth’s during the Phase 4 finale, making this one of the best crossovers to date.

Crystal’s Twitter post notes that the cosmetic item will be available for purchase from today (July 29th), so if it has yet to appear for you, we’d recommend keeping your eyes peeled throughout the day.

With that, the entire cast (excluding Ms. Marvel for obvious reasons) of Marvel’s Avengers now has their own MCU skin, though it’ll be interesting to see if any further additions inspired by the mega-successful film franchise will be added in the future. Especially in the case of Iron Man, Robert Downey, Jr.’s version of Tony Stark went through a number of suits during his tenure, so we wouldn’t at all be surprised to see those still absent added down the road.

Paramount May Be Planning A Strange Star Trek: Voyager Spinoff

Jul 29, 2021 9:47 am

I’ve always had a soft spot for Star Trek: Voyager. Sure, it wasn’t as iconic as The Next Generation or as smart as Deep Space Nine, but it made up for that by being extremely weird. Voyager episodes included an Irish village in the holodeck becoming sentient and attempting to burn the crew at the stake for being witches, their holographic doctor’s daydreams attracting the attention of an alien race, an entire civilization evolving in real-time before the crew’s eyes and… well, whatever was going on in “Threshold.”

Now it seems that Paramount may be considering a Voyager spin-off show and I can guarantee it’s not what you think it is. In various episodes Lt. Tom Paris used the holodeck to live out 1930s B-movie style sci-fi adventures as the swashbuckling Captain Proton. Actor Robert Duncan McNeill obviously enjoyed making these episodes and, during an interview on the Primitive Culture podcast, revealed that he’s pitched reviving Captain Proton as a radio drama podcast.

These adventures (presumably taking place on the holodeck during the Voyager’s trip home) would feature various members of the old cast in different roles. It’s a fun idea, especially as doing it as an audio play means it’s easy to imagine the characters in their prime, expand the scope of the story and keep budgets down.

McNeill confirmed he’s been in contact with Alex Kurtzman’s company about the idea and Kate Mulgrew – Captain Janeway herself – has said she’d definitely appear. She described her role as ‘Queen Arachnia’ on Captain Proton as the “greatest fun” she’d had in her seven-year tenure on Voyager, saying “I never say never, and never say die”.

Let’s hope we hear some confirmation of this soon. ViacomCBS have been working with iHeartRadio to expand their podcast offerings and this would be a great fit.

itemprop=”headline name”>Sweet Tooth Officially Renewed For Season 2 At Netflix

At long last, Netflix have confirmed that smash hit DC Comics adaptation Sweet Tooth has been renewed for a second season, which is admittedly not the most surprising news after the latest batch of viewership data revealed that 60 million subscribers checked it out in the first four weeks the series was available, making it one of the platform’s ten most-watched original shows of all-time.

That being said, there were a few nervous fans before that point, especially when big budget bedfellows Jupiter’s Legacy and Cursed had both been canceled after drawing in strong viewing figures of their own, and there were no guarantees we’d be seeing Gus and Jep back on our screens until we discovered just how many people had taken the plunge to binge the eight-episode adventure.

Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, with Gus having been captured by the nefarious General Abbot and Jep being left for dead. Luckily, former therapist and founder of the Preserve Aimee managed to get the former football player to safety, where they were readying themselves to go and get their surrogate children back by any means necessary.

There’s no start date for production announced as of yet, but hopefully shooting will go a lot smoother the second time around after Sweet Tooth‘s first season was forced to spend months on hiatus due to the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, setting the schedule back significantly.

Sweeping fantasy has been a regular source of popular content for Netflix, and Sweet Tooth was instantly embraced by both fans and critics, who can now rest easy in the knowledge that more episodes are definitely on the way, and the built-in audience is only set to grow bigger.

The concept of the variant is sound in execution, but also very easy to run into the ground in no time at all. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken an ambitious swing by establishing that each timeline contains a different version of a familiar face, and they don’t have to be played by the same actor.

Loki introduced a multitude of variants that each possessed a different backstory and personality, while the death of He Who Remains will lead to a number of Kang the Conquerors making their way to the MCU in an effort to try and reignite another multiversal war with the entire fabric of time, space and reality at stake, which sounds like the ideal backdrop to the next Avengers movie.

We’re now hearing from our sources – the same ones who told us Captain America 4 with Anthony Mackie was in the works long before it was confirmed – that Kevin Feige is keen to introduce variants of well-known MCU heroes, which has the potential to go either way depending on how it’s handled.

For example, it would be a cop-out that would ignite the fury of the fanbase were an alternate Iron Man to be introduced, but on the other side of the coin it would serve as a logical way for that long-rumored Chris Evans comeback to happen.

Not every project on the Phase Four calendar is set to revolve around the multiverse, though, and Feige has done more than enough to earn the trust of his audience for them to put their full faith in whatever he’s cooking up behind the scenes, which is set to be the biggest, boldest and wildest chapter for the MCU yet.
