Tobey Maguire was the first actor to play Spider-Man on the big screen, starring in Sam Raimi’s iconic trilogy of movies. This was years before shared universes would become commonplace, so it would definitely be thrilling for audiences young and old to see him reprise the role in Marvel’s Spider-Man 3. We’ll just have to see if Maguire ends up confirmed, opening up the multiverse in the process.
This news comes to us from Deadline, and might be a surprising turn of events for hardcore Marvel fans. Namely because it was previously revealed that Rachel McAdams wouldn’t be reprising her role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But it looks like Stephen’s love interest and professional collaborator will indeed be in his highly anticipated sequel.
Christine Palmer had a major role in the first Doctor Strange movie, so it makes sense that she’d pop back in for Sam Raimi’s upcoming sequel. She very much represented Stephen’s connection to the real world, as he becomes more immerse in the world of Sorcery. Additionally, their fractured relationship was a living example of how the title character’s injuries and ego ruined their connection.
But Mad Max fans will be in for a treat as many of Fury Road’s collaborators are part of Three Thousand Years of Longing’s crew. Director of Photography John Seale will be behind the lens despite retiring from filmmaking after finishing the Oscar-winning film. Seale is joined by editor Margaret Sixel, hair and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt and set decorator Lisa Thompson. All, who I might add, won Oscars for their work on the critically acclaimed box office hit. Other returning Fury Road staples include composer Tom Holkenborg (better known as Junkie XL), casting director Nikki Barrett, first Assistant Director P.J. Voeten, stunt coordinator Guy Norris, and Sheldon Wade, who created the film’s much-talked-about prosthetics.
The major issue is that Patty Jenkins, like the rest of us, just has no idea what the future is going to hold, and that’s even more than usual. We don’t know what the world will look like coming out of the current climate. We could go back to something that resembles normal. We could just as easily find ourselves in a radically changed world. Patty Jenkins doesn’t want to make a Wonder Woman 3 that simply doesn’t mean anything in the world in which it is released, and so she’ll wait to see just what sort o world that is first.
Courtesy of the good folks at IGN, Nobody reveals the story of a man named Hutch (Odenkirk) who’s, well, a nobody. Thieves break into his house, and he can’t even muster the courage to attack them, which makes him even more of a nobody in the eyes of his family, and the world. That is until circumstances force Hutch to return to a life he thought he’d left behind. It doesn’t look like he loses a dog in the process. But as you’ve seen above, he kicks a lot of ass to protect the ones he loves, and he looks good doing it.
MPAA ratings within the horror genre can differ depending on the project. While PG-13 movies are more accessible for audiences, a hard R will allow for more deadly violence and scares. Halloween movies are typically rated R, and 2018’s sequel allowed Michael Myers to be especially deadly as he rampaged through Haddonfield. Halloween Kills‘ rating was recently confirmed, which is:
Songbird, directed and co-written by Adam Mason, follows a number of interconnected plots in Los Angeles in the near future. COVID-19 has mutated into a new virus that kills quickly and thus the world is in lockdown and Los Angeles is under martial law. The movie has put together an impressive cast that includes Bradley Whitford, Demi Moore, Paul Walter Hauser, Peter Srormare, Alexandria Daddario, and more. With a cast like that, you might feel like you’re in for something at least interesting, but it doesn’t seem so. The Wrap also gives Songbird the benefit of the doubt when it comes to its intentions, but just doesn’t think the end result was anything worth filming during a lockdown to accomplish…
Joss Whedon Loathed The Avengers’ Original Screenplay
Prior to The Avengers, Joss Whedon was known as an Oscar-nominated/Emmy-winning writer behind Toy Story, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, to name a few. Therefore, it wasn’t surprising to know that, in addition to calling the shots on this mega-movie, Whedon had a heavy hand with its screenplay. But when Whedon boarded the project, there was a script — albeit a loose one — already in place. But when he flipped through these pages, written by Zak Penn, Whedon was reportedly intensely dissatisfied, opting to retool the script from page one. He even told producer Kevin Feige that he’d only board the project if he could re-write it; Whedon said they needed to pretend “this draft never happened.” Youch!
In the end, Zak Penn only shares a story credit with Whedon, as his stamp is all over this bad boy — both as a director and writer.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a behemoth in the film world throughout the course of the last decade. The studio has become a well-oiled machine, with every single installment in Phase Three resulting in box office and critical success. But the wait for Phase Four was expanded due to global health issues, and the delays of both Eternals and Black Widow. The latter movie is currently set to hit theaters next May, although with so many movies heading to streaming fans are curious about its possible home on Disney+. Today the House of Mouse will have a four-hour long investor’s meeting, including plenty of updates about the MCU. But said update might be disappointing for fans of Scarlett Johansson’s signature character.
