It feels like every Marvel character from the last 20+ years of movies is rumored to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“Marvel fans are starting to take their theories about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness a bit too far. The film, which will hit theaters in early May, promises to be one of Marvel’s most ambitious and trippiest projects to date. Picking up where WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home left off, Multiverse of Madness has already been confirmed to feature appearances from some truly weird comic book villains as well as What If…? Season 1’s best character.”
Ray Fisher strikes against his Justice League director Joss Whedon after calling the Cyborg-actor “bad.”
“In a post-Me Too world, a new breed of celebrity profile on terrible men has sprouted up. It’s a mea culpa of sorts, one that both acknowledges the subject’s wrongdoings, while also allowing them to explain or reframe whatever allegations were leveled at them. It’s the ‘I’m sorry YOU feel that way’ of celebrity interviews, one steeped simultaneously in self-pity and self-aggrandizement. The interviewee will likely lay blame at the feet of ‘woke culture.’ If they’re a comedian, they might decry censorship or first amendment rights.”
After his breakout performance in The Suicide Squad and shining on HBO Max in his own show, John Cena’s Peacemaker has been teased to have a big future in the DCEU.
“It [Peacemaker] is part of the DCEU, I mean they can use these characters…I mean one of these characters, which people have kind of figured out, one of these characters is used in a future big DC movie that’s from here. So we are connected to all of this. Who knows what role these characters are going to play in the future? I mean no one knew who the Guardians of the Galaxy were, and then all of a sudden they’re massive players in Infinity War and Endgame. So who knows what’s going to happen with Peacemaker in ten years, five years, or whatever?”
You won’t believe some of the most talented actors who auditioned for parts in The Office but didn’t get it.
“When the original pilot cast for The Office was first presented to NBC executives, one key part of the show was missing: Steve Carell. Not missing, though, was his character of Michael Scott—in this proposed version of the series, the head honcho at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch was going to be played by Bob Odenkirk of Breaking Bad and Better Call Sault fame.
Apple TV+ has just rebooted another classic for your childhood, Jim Henson’s slightly lesser-known Muppet project, Fraggle Rock.
“In 2005, the Jim Henson Company had just sold Kermit and his Muppet Show castmates to Disney, but were left with the ‘third wheel’ of Muppet television projects: Fraggle Rock, the late Jim Henson’s most personal creation. Without control of Henson’s most well-known characters, his namesake production company forged ahead to reimagine Fraggle Rock for a new generation (the word ‘edgy’ was involved), beginning work on a feature-length film project. The movie would go through numerous iterations—way too many of which involved the phrase ‘live-action/CGI hybrid’—but never managed to escape the terrible tunnel of film development for one reason or another.”
Has a video game ever been so good it brought you to tears?
“Video games are great for mindless running around, jumping on platforms, and shooting a guy. Always have been and always will be. Though as the medium has grown and evolved, it’s become more and more of an avenue to tell rich stories filled with characters and narratives you grow attached to. So much so, you may even find yourself crying when shit goes sideways for them or when you just find yourself in a beautiful heartwarming story that just crushes you.”
