At the same time, there are definitely places they haven’t gone yet; specifically, Wolverine’s iconic yellow uniform. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine wore uniforms, of course, but they were typically black or nondescript. With Karl Urban, they could have a chance to dive into this look and embrace it. Whatever they choose, Karl Urban would fit the look perfectly.
Concrete Cowboy – TBD
Idris Elba is also set to appear in the upcoming drama from first-time director Ricky Staub by the name of Concrete Cowboy. The film, which has already been screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, centers on a young boy named Cole (Caleb McLaughlin of Stranger Things fame) after he moves from Detroit and takes up residence with his estranged father, Harp (Elba) in Philadelphia. In addition to learning about his father, Cole will also be thrown into the North Philadelphia urban cowboy subculture, which serves a tribute to the director’s neighborhood and the culture that exists there, according to Deadline.
Unfortunately, there is no information on when we’ll get to see Concrete Cowboy, but going off the premise, the cast, and the first look that has been going around, this one looks like it’s going to bring the drama when it finally comes to theaters.
After guest starring on Sex in the City in 2000, Matthew McConaughey starred in five romantic comedies in the matter of a decade, all of which big hits. You know what I’m talking about: The Wedding Planner, How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Failure To Launch, Fool’s Gold and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Here’s what happened next, per McConaughey:
Charlize Theron Had No Idea The Old Guard Would Be Such A Hit While Making It
You never really know how a movie is going to turn out, and Charlize Theron had that very feeling while working on The Old Guard. In an interview with Variety, Theron explained that she never considered how big the movie would be while they were filming and honestly didn’t want to ask anyone about the expectations because she was not brave enough to hear any predictions. Little did Theron, or anyone else know, the movie was a runaway hit upon its Netflix release, especially during a time when people wanted new content more than ever.
Well, that about catches us up with everything that happened behind the scenes on the making of The Old Guard. Now we just need to find out when that highly anticipated sequel is coming out…
Kayako -The Grudge
A lot of people may not immediately assume this Japanese ghost is a heavy hitter in the horror world, but rest assured, she might be the most fearsome foe any Marvel hero could tangle with. Kayako may not be physically strong, but she can teleport, has super speed and can paralyze and possess whoever she damn well pleases. Oh yeah, she also reads minds and warps reality. It’s basically like you’re dealing with the Phoenix Force, except the Phoenix Force has been defeated by Marvel heroes. Kayako hasn’t lost, and with no clear way of defeating her (unless low cinema scores do the trick), I’m not sure there’s a Marvel hero who could take her down either.
Nevertheless, assuming Ben Wheatley is still attached to Tomb Raider 2, is that being prioritized or The Meg 2? Considering that The Meg made a much commercial bigger splash than Tomb Raider did, perhaps that’ll give The Meg 2 the edge, but for now, it’s unclear. In any case, for those of you who’d wondered if The Meg 2 had perhaps been quietly shelved, now there’s evidence to the contrary.
Marvel Studios has hinted that the First Family is indeed coming to the MCU at some point in the future, yet why not usher them in with a salute to the original team? It’s possible that, in their own dimension, the veteran team could also be looking into the theory of multiple dimensions, and they could actually end up stumbling upon the MCU.
When it comes to what takes them there, it could be anything from an interdimensional issue to a regular exploration mission. Afterwards, their visit would leave the heroes of the MCU wondering if such a team exists in their own world, leading to that eventual reveal later on. There are a multitude of ways to pull it off, but I do think it would be nice to revisit these characters and see where they are over a decade later. Plus, how cool would it be to see the MCU heroes react to Johnny Storm resembling Steve Rogers?
After a couple years away from Hollywood following her goodbye to Mystique in the X-Men prequel films, Jennifer Lawrence has joined Netflix’s Don’t Look Up, a star-studded movie including Leo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Himesh Patel, Timothée Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, Matthew Perry, Rob Morgan and Tomer Sisley, and is being written/directed by The Big Short’s Adam McKay.
So how’s this endeavor coming along? Well, Shuri’s managed to create a synthetic Heart-Shaped Herb and has contemplated mixing it with vibranium, but she mentions that she can’t do much more until she’s able to study a sample of the original plant, which is obviously difficult to come by. Shuri also mentioned that she’s looked into Extremis research conducted by the late Maya Hansen. Granted, Extremis’ use in Iron Man 3 caused a lot of people to explode, but Shuri is interested in the idea that if you treat “the human brain like a supercomputer,” then you can make it think “that it has the abilities of cytokini and auxin in plants,” and thus be able to regrow lost appendages.
Now here’s something that’s not talked about much when it comes to young Hollywood actresses. Once one becomes a leading lady, there’s this sudden expectation to hold one’s own and be able to attend massive events, perhaps without any context about the flood of people joining you. As Nicole Kidman shared, she found it especially difficult to navigate her career when she was single because all eyes were on her all the time, and that was a scary situation to be in regularly.
