The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a massive place, full of a variety of beloved franchises. The Thor movies have had a unique life in theaters, as Oscar winning filmmaker Taika Waititi breathed new life to the property with 2017’s Ragnarok. He’s back for the upcoming sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, and now some fans are wondering if he might be reviving a fan favorite character that died in Phase Three. Namely, Idris Elba’s Heimdall.

Star Wars’ Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams And More Pay Tribute To Darth Vader Actor David Prowse

Beyond the likes of Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams, many who have become part of Star Wars much more recently, but clearly feel like they’re now part of that extended family, posted their thoughts on the passing of David Prowse. Among them, Carl Weathers, who plays Greek Cargo on The Mandalorian. While Darth Vader might have been best known for his voice, without Prowse impressive size Vader might now have been the imposing force he was.

MasterClass Is Having a Rare (and Really Good) Cyber Monday Sale

Update: November 30, 2020

MasterClass rarely goes on sale, but we caught wind of a not-to-be-missed Cyber Monday deal. On November 30—for 24 hours only—you can score two (!) one-year subscriptions to the digital streaming platform for the price of one. (FYI, an annual membership typically costs $180, so you’re technically getting 50% off with this promo). MasterClass has only offered this “buy one, get one free” deal once before, so now’s is definitely the time to sign up.

As we said: The offer will end at 11:59 p.m. on November 30, so if you—or a close friend or relative—have been eager to watch Serena Williams or Tan France show you what’s good, don’t wait for the clock to strike midnight to miss out on this deal.

MasterClass

Original story: May 8, 2020

If you have an Instagram account, you’ve no doubt seen an ad for MasterClass on your feed in recent weeks. The online learning platform launched in 2015 with three instructors—and in the years since, it’s tapped nearly 100 celebrities and industry leaders to share expert courses through an exclusive membership. Admittedly, I’m not much of an online learner, but something about being holed up in an apartment with nowhere to go has me wanting to do something other than bake another loaf of banana bread or failing at puzzling. Just me?

MasterClass courses run the gamut: lifestyle, politics, entertainment, fashion, design, and film. Each expert creates a virtual lesson plan, which shakes out to about 20 videos—all around 10 minutes each. The courses are billed as “classes that look like movies,” and the description is pretty spot-on, if you take a sneak peek on Instagram or YouTube. From the lighting to the coloring to the editing, the overarching vibe is objectively cinematic, but the content is fed to you in popcorn-size portions.

Courses stretch over two to five hours, and you could technically binge-watch a whole series in a single sitting—though after months of quarantine, you might’ve learned that slow and steady wins the race. The clips are short and sweet; you can pause, skip, or rewind to your heart’s content (something you can’t do in an IRL class). Phones, tablets, and laptops work just fine as viewing devices, but if your eyes hurt from staring at tiny fonts all day, I highly recommend hooking up to your TV with an HDMI cable or a Roku to get the most out of the cinematic quality video. (MasterClass is also compatible with Apple TV and Amazon Firestick, FYI.)

About those experts…MasterClass has you (virtually) face-to-face with everyone you’d want to invite to the imaginary dinner party of your dreams: Alicia Keys, Tan France, Serena Williams, Marc Jacobs, Margaret Atwood, Natalie Portman, Diane Von Furstenburg, Martin Scorcese, Anna Wintour, Gordon Ramsey, RuPaul, even Armin Van Buuren and Timbaland (!!). The list really does go on, so whether you’re into photography or cooking, politics or sports, you’ll find your niche here. Or maybe the opposite will happen, and you’ll find yourself piqued by ideas and stories outside your norm—arguably one of the few silver linings to quarantine at this point.

The MCU Heroes Black Widow’s Taskmaster Will Imitate When He Fights Natasha Romanoff

In the comic books, Taskmaster would meticulously study his opponents and replicate their fighting styles in order to find weaknesses. You can imagine this would be difficult depict in a film, but that was the challenge that was set before James Young, the film’s fight coordinator. Young, a Marvel Studios veteran whose credits include films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Endgame, called Taskmaster the “hardest” character he and his team have had to design by far. Yet they seemed to have found the key to mastering him, and he used a key sequence from the film to illustrate his method:

The 24 Best Winter Coats That Are Stylish and Extra-Warm

Unless you’re an avid outdoors enthusiast, the best winter coats are typically ones that aren’t only high-performing but those that fit your personal style. A great coat has the power to pull together an entire outfit, no matter what’s underneath (which, let’s be honest, is probably sweatpants.)

What winter coat should you buy? 

Depends on what your needs are and where you live. Typically winter coats with a down fill are the warmest and are best for people spending a great deal of time outdoors. If you’re working from home this winter and only plan on being outside for essential errands, a down alternative, a classic wool style or an oversized teddy that can be layered might be more your speed. 

How often should I wash my winter coat?

Most experts agree that unless your outerwear takes a beating regularly, washing or dry-cleaning once a season is enough; twice if it’s your everyday coat. Several nylon down styles are machine washable, while wool and fur should be dry cleaned or steamed.

Puffer winter coats 

Whether filled with down or some type of down alternative, the best winter coats for keeping you extra-warm are, undeniably, puffy styles with plenty of room underneath to layer. Look for waterproof outer shells like nylon or ripstop to protect against snow, sleet, and rain.
