Comic book movies are everywhere, but none have had the unprecedented life of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

The Snyder Cut is currently available for home purchase abroad, and the titular filmmaker is thanking fans for its performance ahead of the US release.

Black Widow Reactions Are In, Here’s What People Are Saying About Scarlett Johansson’s Marvel Movie

Phase Four of the MCU is already underway with the Disney+ series WandaVision, The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, and Loki, but we’ve yet to see the first film in phase four. That will soon change, however, as the highly anticipated Black Widow is finally almost here! Black Widow finally gets her own movie, with Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as the titular character, of course, alongside Florence Pugh, David Harbour, O-T Fagbenle, Rachel Weisz, William Hurt, and Ray Winstone. Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, this next installment in the MCU sees Natasha Romanoff on the run and forced to confront her history as a spy and a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past.

We haven’t seen a Marvel Cinematic Universe film since summer of 2019, so fans are eagerly awaiting Black Widow (and those who saw test screenings are already comparing it to another MCU installment). After many delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Johansson’s movie will finally arrive on July 9 in theaters and simultaneously on Disney+ with Premier Access. Some critics have already seen early screenings, and they’re sharing their thoughts on social media, so let’s take a look.

Captain America: Civil War Set Video Reveals Blooper Behind Spider-Man’s MCU Entrance

Seeing the clip showed just how much effort goes into making those MCU action scenes appear otherworldly. Marvin Ross was able to play off the moment without injuring himself, which is a feat. Ross’s actual slip-up was barely noticeable, but his recovery made the moment seem scripted rather than an outtake. The way he caught himself before sticking the landing spoke to how professional and talented he is as a stunt performer. Honestly, the outtake was so good, it could’ve made the final cut for Spider-Man’s amazing introduction.

Captain America: Civil War is currently available on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

How Much Ryan Reynolds’ The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Could Make At the Box Office Opening Weekend, Despite Reviews

The Hitman’s Bodyguard was something of a surprise hit when it was released back in 2017. It made $176 million worldwide on a modest budget, and saw an opening weekend over $20 million domestically. By comparison, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is only projected to do $14-$16 million over its first five days of release, according to The Wrap. The movie opened this past Wednesday rather than the traditional Friday release, though we can expect the majority of its income to happen Friday-Sunday.

Dang, Apparently Adding Back Fireworks Made A Huge Difference In The Number Of People Who Wanted To Go To Disney World

Disney announced the return of fireworks to both Magic Kingdom and Epcot on July 1. And shortly after the announcement, reservations at the parks increased, making it a bit tougher to get into Magic Kingdom. Yesterday, according to WDWNT, Disney refreshed reservations, making more reservations at the parks available in July, but now, just a day later, Magic Kingdom is once again sold out for the first seven days of July for general ticket holders and those staying in Disney resorts. Annual Pass reservations are booked at Magic Kingdom for the first five days of July.

Why The Rock Could Come Back For Fast And Furious 10, According To Justin Lin

People come and go through the Fast and Furious saga, whether it’s characters on the screen, or filmmakers in the director’s chair. Justin Lin, for example, returns to the franchise after sitting out Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious, and he’s making sure that Sung Kang’s thought-deceased racer Han is able to come back to the mix. Knowing that the Fast saga is working its way to a two-part finale that is expected to close off this segment of the story, the ReelBlend podcast wanted to know if The Rock was on the “table,” so to speak, in terms of coming back for the conclusion, and Lin tells us why he thinks that’s possible in the exclusive clip above.

The Star Wars prequel films have aged like a fine wine… or maybe the adults who watched them as children have slowly dominated the majority opinion of the internet. In either case, people love the Prequel Trilogy, and the deep lore that has existed off screen. It’s all thanks to the movies and what they established with characters introduced in there, though it’s worth saying not all characters were created equal.

John Boyega Offers A+ Choice For Actors To Play Black Superman Calvin Ellis

Jonathan Majors As Superman

John Boyega’s other idea is Jonathan Majors, who has also been having a huge year in between his memorable roles in Lovecraft Country, Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods and his upcoming villain role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Majors has already found his way into the comic book world by way of the MCU, but we’d take him in the DCEU as well as Calvin Harris. I’d argue Majors is actually the better pick for Calvin Ellis of the two – but, I burn for you too, Regé!

Lord Of The Rings’ Gimli Actor Reveals Gnarly Injuries From Middle Earth

Brett Beattie fought Orcs in Fangorn Forest, ran from Goblins in the Mines of Moria and brought down Wargs in Rohan, so it’s no surprise that he accumulated a fair amount of battle scars. In addition to the axe-induced brow injury, he also blew out both of his knees. At the time of Polygon’s interview, Brett Beattie had undergone three knee surgeries, but he’s kept a sense of humor about the situation:
