Director Insinuates Studio Is Burying New Johnny Depp Movie After Court Case With Amber Heard In New Letter

MGM released a statement saying simply that Minamata is still a future release planned by the studio and that it simply did not have a release date yet. To be sure, every movie has seen complications when it has come to release in the last year, so the idea that the studio might simply be waiting for the right time isn’t outside possibility.

And now some epic Marvel fan art has brought together said universe, including some major fan theories.

Howard The Duck Starred Robin Williams For A Time, But The Reason He Quit Makes Total Sense

And you also have to remember that Howard the Duck came out in 1986. Sure, Robin Williams was a big TV star with roles on shows like Happy Days and Mork and Mindy, but besides Popeye and The World According to Garp, Robin Williams hadn’t really exploded on the film scene yet. I could just imagine Williams looking at that script, and then thinking, are you kidding me? I have to deliver lines like this perfectly just so I can make a duck look good? No thanks, I’m out, or something of that nature. In the end, I think Chip Zien did a great job with his performance and I couldn’t imagine anybody else voicing the duck. Not even Robin Williams.

New Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer Features Beloved Original Stars

In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, and Finn Wolfhard play Callie, Phoebe, and Trevor – a single mother and her two children who find themselves evicted from their home. With no other choice, they go to the Oklahoma house that was left to the family by the kids’ grandfather, Dr. Egon Spengler. and try to start their lives anew. This would be challenging for anybody, but making things even harder is the fact that the town has been plagued by frequent earthquakes (despite not being anywhere near a fault line), and strange events have been reported tied back to an old mine previously owned by an alleged occultist. Phoebe winds up solving a puzzle that gives her access to all of her grandfather’s old equipment, and the family together teams up to try and stop a dangerous supernatural foe.

Naomi Osaka’s Olympics Run is Over

Naomi Osaka’s Olympics run is officially over as the string of upsets in the Olympics 2021 in Tokyo continues. 

The tennis star, who is currently ranked number two in the world, lost in the third round of Olympic play to Marketa Vondrousova. It’s the latest in a string of tennis shakeups—number one ranked player, Australian Ash Barty lost in the first round and the number three ranked player Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus is also out. 

Osaka has, in may ways been the face of the Tokyo Olympics. Competing as an athlete for her home country Japan, she lit the Olympic torch at the Opening Ceremony. But more than that, Osaka has been an outspoken activist in the months leading up to the Games, an avatar for the way so many women athletes are using their platforms. 

Osaka notably withdrew from the Grand Slam competitions leading up to the Olympics, taking a stand to protect her mental health. “The truth is I have suffered long bouts of depression since the U.S. Open in 2018 and I’ve had a really hard time coping with that,” she wrote on Instagram, adding that she would be taking some time away from the court.

Naomi Osaka’s Olympics run isn’t the only one that hasn’t gone as planned. The USWNT, who was on a 44-game winning streak, lost to Sweden in their first Olympic match (although the team will still advance to the quarter finals). And the news of Osaka’s ouster came just hours before the news that Simone Biles withdrew from the women’s team competition citing a “medical issue.” (It is yet to be determined if she will compete in any individual events.) 

Mads Mikkelsen And 9 Other Celebrities Who Voiced Disney Characters In Other Languages

Ever since Robin Williams was cast as the voice of the Genie in Aladdin, it’s become standard operating procedure for major animated films to cast big name actors in important voice roles, rather than the professional voice actors that was the standard previously. Thanks to Williams, we have the likes of Tom Hanks in the Toy Story films and Dwayne Johnson voicing Maui in Moana, but it turns out that it’s not just in English that some major names you know voiced characters in popular Disney and Pixar films.

In many cases, this work was done “before they were stars,” as it were. In other cases, we see celebrity cameos pop for small roles in nations where the cameo will mean a little something more than it might in the USA. And sometimes it seems the role was given celebrity casting in other nations for the same reason it was done here: because adding a star can help attract the audience. Here are 10 times that celebrities voices Disney and Pixar characters in other languages.

Why Shang-Chi’s Simu Liu Was Scared The Marvel Movie Wouldn’t Be Completed

It’s no secret that the pandemic royally messed things up all over the world for pretty much an entire year, and the film industry was certainly no different. Marvel had so many projects in the works during this time as the studio struggled to push out the beginning of the MCU’s Phase 4, finally kicking it off with WandaVision on Disney+ earlier this year. After delays, Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings star Simu Liu was even worried that his premiere Marvel film wouldn’t get completed, and he explained how COVID was to blame for his concerns.

Simone Biles Pulls Out of the Gymnastics Team Final at the 2021 Olympics

Simone Biles has pulled out of the gymnastics team final at the Olympics 2021 for a “medical issue,” the Today show reported on Tuesday, July 27. 

USA Gymnastics says Biles will be assessed daily to determine if she’s fit for future events at the Tokyo Games. 

According to the New York Times,  Biles “faltered” on the vault, doing a Yurchenko with 1½ twists as opposed to the planned 2½ twists. She also “stumbled” out of the landing. 

The rest of the gymnastics team will continue to compete at the Olympics 2021 without Biles, of course hoping she’ll join for individual events later in the Games. 

Simone Biles took to Instagram a few days ago to talk Olympics pressure. “It wasn’t an easy day or my best but I got through it,” she wrote. “I truly do feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times. I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn’t affect me but damn sometimes it’s hard hahaha! The olympics is no joke! BUT I’m happy my family was able to be with me virtually🤍 they mean the world to me!”

Following Black Widow, 7 Marvel Movies And TV Shows Taskmaster Should Appear Next

WARNING: The following article contains (and is almost entirely dependent on) SPOILERS for Black Widow so proceed with caution unless you are already up to the task.

While Taskmaster may not have been the “big bad” of Black Widow (a position saved for Ray Winstone as Dreykov), the character’s big screen debut led to some of its most thrilling moments, including the reveal that the villain was really Dreykov’s daughter, Antonia (Olga Kurylenko). The Scarlett Johansson-led superhero movie also rewrote Antonia’s fate by freeing her from her father’s control and giving her the chance to use her skills of copying her opponent’s fighting styles for good instead of evil. If we are to expect more of Antonia Dreykov in upcoming Marvel movies and/or upcoming Marvel TV shows, what titles might she appear in most likely? We have a few suggestions.
