This is actually another character with ties to J. Jonah Jameson, as in the comics it was the media magnate who originally hired Alistair’s father, Spencer Smythe, to build the Spider Slayers – but he wound up dying from radiation poisoning from materials in his work. Alistair then picked up where his dad left off, fueled by his own hatred of Spider-Man, and he not only successfully advanced the robots, but took the pursuit further by building a bio-organic suit and becoming the Ultimate Spider-Slayer. In Spider-Man 3, Alistair could attempt similar pursuits thinking that he is working in the best interest of the public by trying to kill Tom Holland’s protagonist, but we as an audience know that he is being misled.
It should be noted that it’s not confirmed that Don Cheadle will be the official bad guy of Space Jam 2, but Paul Scheer is certainly a close enough source to the actor. The basketball flick has, of course, enlisted the Looney Tunes, an impressive lineup of NBA and WNBA players, Star Trek: Discovery’s Sonequa Martin-Green, who is playing LeBron James’ wife, while Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee helming.
Starting tonight, moviegoers can stay put in their homes and still experience a new release with a large group of people. The studio has announced three Twitter watch parties happening tonight through Sunday morning. All you have to do is rent the movie and follow along with each night’s hashtags as you view the movie. Together, but separate.
For those who need a Doctor Strange refresher course, Christine Palmer (who, in the comics, is one of the women who’s also known as Night Nurse) is a surgeon and Stephen Strange’s ex-girlfriend. While she initially helped Strange recover after his car accident, she left him after they got into an argument where he accused her of pitying him. Strange reunited with Christine after he became a sorcerer, and she saved his life after he was injured during a fight with one of Kaecilius’ followers.
What Does The Pit Represent?
The Pit, the aforementioned prison in which The Platform is set, is a society all its own, harboring a seemingly effective system of rules in which, once a day, the titular platform descends from the top bearing a plentiful feast, stopping at each level for two minutes, during which cellmates can eat their portion without keeping a single item. After each month, inmates are put to sleep by a tranquilizing gas and transported to a new level of random selection. The system seems simple and effective enough, if not for the fact that no inmate is concerned with taking their own unspecified portion, but only how much they can grab before the platform continues, leaving less food available for lower levels and, at an undefined point, not even a crumb remains, leaving the unlucky ones below to starve or resort to more desperate measures.
With all these delays and more movies still on the calendar for later in the summer, Disney might not want to place Black Widow among them. Plus, the studio has also delayed Mulan, which is another big-budget release that Disney wants to be a blockbuster just as much as Black Widow. Phase Four’s summer slot was supposed to go over to Disney+, where The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would premiere. One option could be Black Widow replacing Jungle Cruise at the end of July, but that doesn’t leave much time for fans to jump on Falcon and the Winter Soldier in August.
Union leaders from both Disneyland and Walt Disney World sent letters to the company to demand it still pay its employees, according to THR. Disney workers had previously been notified of the park’s extended closures, but were left hanging about the subject of compensation. Disney cast members are paid hourly, with varying amounts of shifts per week – so just how much they will be given is unclear.
In addition to her role as Illyana Rasputin, a.k.a. Magik, in the forthcoming The New Mutants (which was recently delayed for the fourth time due to the current pandemic), Anya Taylor-Joy’s other credits include The Witch, Split, Glass and Emma, which is now available for rental on VOD platforms. Taylor-Joy also had a voice role in Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and her other upcoming projects include Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and the Netflix miniseries The Queen’s Gambit.
Narratively, bringing Detective Pikachu back for a sequel would seemingly require more work on Ryan Reynolds’ part. His talking Pikachu has been transformed back into his human form, opening up for him to appear more in live-action in a potential follow-up movie. But Reynolds is also a super busy actor with a thriving career, so timing would have to work out. Additionally, Justice Smith is set to appear in Jurassic World: Dominion, but it’s unclear when that movie will kick production back up.
The Matrix 4 is being even more secretive with its plot details, and aside from Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith and Lambert Wilson all reprising their respective roles from the original Matrix trilogy, none of the movie’s characters have been identified. The lineup of new faces includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Toby Onwumere, Eréndira Ibarra, Priyanka Chopra, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J. Smith and Ellen Hollman
