Florence Pugh’s Yelena will be introduced as a sister-like figure to Natasha Romanoff, and trailers for Black Widow have teased that they share a loving (and competitive) relationship. Since working on the film, Pugh has become close with Scarlett Johansson, and it’ll be interesting to see how the two play off each other on screen.
At present, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a total of eight movies set to come out between now and July 2022 – but an interesting detail about that selection of titles is that the word “Avengers” isn’t mentioned in any of them. It’s surely a brand that the franchise isn’t discontinuing, but for now the studio is remaining secretive about their future plans for the superhero team. Naturally, the state of things has led fans to speculate wildly about what’s going on, and some ideas are pretty crazy, but one development that seems to become increasingly likely is the formation of the team called the Young Avengers.
Created by Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung, the more youthful version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes was introduced in Marvel Comics in 2005, and while their group name is a bit silly, what is equally true is that the series brings together a collection of wonderful characters – including Kang The Conqueror a.k.a. Iron Lad, Kate Bishop a.k.a. Hawkeye, Elijah Bradley a.k.a. Patriot, Cassie Lang a.k.a. Stature, Teddy Altman a.k.a. Hulkling, Billy Kaplan a.k.a. Wiccan, Tommy Shepherd a.k.a. Speed, and Vision. In recent years there have been some moves made by the Marvel Cinematic Universe that suggest that we may see a live-action version of this team come together in the near future, and we’ve collected all the evidence of this unconfirmed development here for you to ponder:
As The Rock detailed, he was dealing with a power outage at his home and the electronic gate that usually allows him to leave the premises was not budging. Dwayne Johnson said he tried to override the hydraulic system, but it was not going to open for him for another 45 minutes. The actor was due to set with “hundreds” of people from the production crew, so he ultimately decided to push and pull until he ripped open the gate leading to the above scene.
Just like in the comics, Bloodshot followed U.S. Marine Ray Garrison being killed, then resurrected through experimental nanite technology and transformed into a super soldier meant to carry out the directives of a mysterious organization. Along with Vin Diesel, the movie starred Sam Heughan, Eiza González, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce, Lamorne Morris, Talulah Riley and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, among others.
That’s right. Although the movie is centered on a plot taking place in Egypt, Death on the Nile does not actually take place there in real life. Armie Hammer talked about how he was given a “false bill of goods” by the filmmakers, thinking he’d be traveling over to Egypt for the role. However, the movie was mainly filmed over in England at Longcross Studios in Surrey.
It seems like it has been forever since we last saw Robert Downey Jr. take on the role of the world’s most decorated fictional detective in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Since the 2011 followup to the 2009 box office smash hit Sherlock Holmes, there have been quite a few ups and downs with the third movie in the franchise, but now that Downey is no longer a regular player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it finally looks like we’re going to see Sherlock Holmes 3, with a different director and possibly even a new location.
And although production or even casting (besides Holmes and Watson) has gotten underway at this point in time, there are still quite a few things going on with the threequel. With that in mind, here are seven quick things to know about Sherlock Holmes 3.
Speculation is the one word we’d like to leave you with in closing, as the world of spies is always full of secrets waiting to be revealed. Even if the truth turns out to be something way different, or absolutely spot on, we still don’t know everything about No Time To Die just yet. We’ll get to partake in that particular experience rather soon, as the movie is currently slated for theatrical release in the U.S. on November 20, though that might change, along with the theories we’ve laid out above. But whenever news breaks and plans shift, you can be sure we’ll report back with the details.
Julia Roberts also moved quickly on starring in the project, playing Stacy Hamilton, the sister of Brad Hamilton, the character Brad Pitt portrayed during the table read. Pitt and Aniston seem to be on good terms, since the former specifically called out the latter at the start of the virtual meeting. Check out their cute exchange here:
Released to the public on July 20, 2012, The Dark Knight Rises was the most commercially successful movie of the Dark Knight trilogy, raking in approximately $1.081 billion. And while views will differ on the movie’s quality compared to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, overall it was met with a lot of positive reception, ranking at 87% among critics and 90% among audiences on Rotten Tomatoes.
Salo, Or The 120 Days Of Sodom (1975)
Kind of sort of based off of a book by Marquis de Sade, Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom, is about some “gentlemen” who kidnap 18 teenagers and basically have their way with them, torturing them sexually, emotionally, physically, you name it. The director, Pier Paolo, was murdered three weeks before its release, though not because of the content of this film. In the end, the movie is an allegory for fascism’s ultimate intention.
