Miles Teller as Lt. Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw in Top Gun: Maverick

Miles Teller confirms he’s had discussions about a third Top Gun, but says it’s entirely up to Tom Cruise if the movie ever gets made.

“Earning more than $1 billion USD at the global box office, Top Gun: Maverick was no doubt a cinematic success, but despite its popularity, there’s no sign of a sequel coming to the already sequel 1986’s Top Gun. Luckily for fans, it seems some of the movie’s main cast members would be keen to continue on with more films.”

“James Caan was hardly a newcomer to Hollywood when he played the role of hothead Sonny Corleone in The Godfather. But it was Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 epic mob movie that solidified his place on the A-list (and landed him his first and only Oscar nomination). While the Bronx-born actor, who passed away at the age of 82 on July 6, 2022, amassed more than 135 acting credits throughout his more than 60-year career, he was just as well known for the major roles he turned down. Here are just a handful of them.”

Ant-Man himself finally addresses the fan theories about how he’d defeat Thanos in a hilarious riff from a Disney Cruise.

“Few Marvel queries are as hilarious or enduring as the Ant-Man/Thanos butthole theory. The theory went viral on the internet and for good reason. After all, why can’t Ant-Man crawl up Thanos’s butt and explode him from the inside? The question spawned countless memes, jokes, and even a catchy song. And while the Russo brothers addressed the theory, audiences have yet to hear from Ant-Man himself.”

Despite there being a reported 4-hour cut of Thor: Love and Thunder, Taika Waititi has no desire for anyone to see it.

“Since Zack Snyder got to take something of a victory lap with last year’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and even when it was still just something for very devoted fans to ceaselessly hope for, there’s been a question of if we’ll get more director’s and extended cuts of big budget films. Surprisingly, Marvel movies have never gotten in on this across their many films; even the bigger touchstones like Black Panther or Avengers: Endgame just have their original theatrical versions. While the question doesn’t come up much for the various MCU directors, Taika Waititi made his position on the matter clear: yeahhhhhhhhh, no.”

Martin Freeman spills the beans and reveals he’s in Marvel’s upcoming show Secret Invasion.

“We don’t see Dr. Erik Selvig in the Marvel movies as often as we used to, so it’s time for someone else to replace Stellan Skarsgård as the new regular guy who always shows up but doesn’t have powers and rarely does anything exciting. Martin Freeman seems like the best candidate, since he clearly filled the Selvig-type role in Black Panther after making his debut as government stooge Everett K. Ross in Captain America: Civil War.”

“We’re halfway through the year, and a throughline is clear: Despite a wave of delays and industry upheaval, 2022 has cemented its place as a damn good year for video games. By summer, we’re usually bemoaning a lack of must-play games. But this year, so far, is the opposite: There are, somehow, almost too many games that are worth your time.”
