For those unfamiliar with Isis, she originally started out as the lead character of the TV series The Secrets of Isis, which aired as the second half of The Shazam!/Isis Hour. However, in the mid-2000s limited series 52, a new version of Isis named Adrianna Tomaz was introduced to DC Comics’ main continuity, and she started out as an Egyptian refugee who was kidnapped by Intergang and given to Black Adam as a gift. As a man who knows a thing or two about the horrors of slavery, Black Adam freed Adrianna and killer her captors, and in the following weeks they spent together, Adrianna convinced Adam to change his world outlook, leading him to commit kinder acts.
Between finishing those biographies, meeting with a dialect coach, and learning her lines as she prepares to take on one of the most visible public figures in recent memory, Kristen Stewart looks to have a busy few months ahead of her.
Does all of this make you excited for Spencer? Make sure to sound off in the comments below and make sure to check back for future updates here at CinemaBlend.
When the 43-year-old Florida man checked into Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in Orlando at the top of September, a bellman found the two weapons, along with three rifle magazines with 90 total rounds, and two 9mm magazines with 20 rounds total, stuffed into a tennis bag with his belongings. Police were notified of the weapons and the man was questioned at the sheriff’s office.
This revelation comes from the new book Star Wars: Fascinating Facts (via Twitter user @Oozer), which was written by Pablo Hidalgo, Lucasfilm’s Creative Executive. Hidalgo didn’t provide any details on how Luke Skywalker died in George Lucas’ take on Episode VIII, but that plot twist was hashed out years before what we now know as The Last Jedi entered development. So even in an alternate reality where Lucas had been able to make his Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, Episode VIII still would have ended with Luke becoming one with the Force.
How Vampires Vs. The Bronx Ended
In Vampire vs. the Bronx, Miguel, Bobby and Luis find out that there is a secret community of vampires who are literally sucking the life out of their hometown of the Bronx through buying up real estate and taking over for their housing pleasure. Vampires is an apt social commentary for the prevalence of gentrification in many neighborhoods throughout the U.S, including the Bronx, but told through a fun, campy storyline.
The Ballad of Songbird and Snakes will not be a Hunger Games rerun with another name because there are different dynamics at play. Whereas Katniss was all about action, arrows and overall bluntness, that is not the story of the prequel’s protagonist. Lucy is an orphan living in District 12 who was predominantly raised by her singing group. When she is chosen as a tribute at the 10th Hunger Games, she uses her powerful singing voice to become a Capitol favorite ahead of competing in the games.
Set to be written, produced, and directed by Adam McKay as his follow-up to the Academy Award-winning Vice, the story will follow a pair of “low-level” astronomers who discover that the Earth will soon be destroyed by a giant asteroid that is on a collision course with the planet. Together they set out on a media tour to try and warn the world, and knowing McKay’s sensibilities it will probably not be the easiest gig.
Acknowledging the filmmaker’s advocacy in regard to climate change, it wouldn’t exactly be surprising to find that the movie will serve as a metaphor of that particular crisis and the struggle to convince everyone of its extreme danger.
According to Deadline, most of the stars announced as part of the cast today have been “loosely attached” for months now, but that the big fish that the project found tricky to reel in was Leonardo DiCaprio. This wasn’t because of a lack of interest; in fact, its quite the opposite. Don’t Look Up has apparently been in front of the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star for a while now, but he has been struggling to find a way to make both it and Martin Scorsese’s next film, Killers Of The Flower Moon, which are developing simultaneously. Now the schedules have worked out that allow him to do both, hence this announcement.
Unfortunately we have no idea at this stage who is playing what part in Don’t Look Up, but really, does it matter? With this murderer’s row of talent involved, it’s hard to imagine anyone not streaming this film as soon as possible when it hits Netflix. Now that the cast is set, hopefully production will be able to start soon, and if that’s the case it’s possible that it could be ready for release in the second half of 2021.
We’ll most definitely be keeping a close eye on the development of this project, so stay tuned here on CinemaBlend for all of the latest news and updates.
Felicity Jones Suiting Up As Black Cat
This was bordering on a blink-and-you-miss storyline for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but you may remember Rogue One’s Felicity Jones’ appearing in the movie as Felicia Hardy. The character, who famously goes by the alter ego of Black Cat, was briefly introduced as the Osborn’s assistant, but other than that, the name drop was thin. The actress had very little screen time, despite the exciting possibilities of Andrew Garfield’s Spidey flirting with the anti-heroine around New York City.
While Kitbag sounds like it will be another interesting collaboration between Ridley Scott and Joaquin Phoenix, don’t expect it to be the movie Scott delivers right after The Last Duel. That honor belongs to Gucci, which will chronicle the murder of Maurizio Gucci in 1995, which was arranged by his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani. So far, Gucci’s cast includes Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Jack Huston and Reeve Carney.
The last time there was a changing of the guards was in October 2005, when a then 37-year-old Daniel Craig was announced to be the sixth official James Bond. The news came three years after the release of Pierce Brosnan’s last outing in 2002’s Die Another Day. What happened then sounds exactly like how Barbara Broccoli has explained. It could be years before we find out, and at the very least, the producers are going to want to wait until No Time To Die is released.
