亚博电子竞技官网采用百度引擎6（Baidu 0）The Villain that Tested Them the MostFassbender: Apocalypse. I mean, I was always, personally, like, does Eric really have to follow this guy? It definitely went against the grain for me, I’ve got to say. But it was Oscar [Isaac], so that was the bit that I was like, OK, well, I would follow Oscar.McAvoy: Yeah. He s a great peer. He s a great fellow Shmactor. But, yeah. Maybe him. I m not sure actually. Trask, maybe? Because I felt like I got to a place of trust with you again, you know? A place where I thought we could be together again… and then you go and drop a stadium on the White House.The Evolution of their RelationshipMcAvoy: I don t feel like it s that different [now]. Do you know what? We had more to do together in First Class and Days of Future Past, less so in Days of Future Past, but we had more to do with each other in every film in the past; Apocalypse there was less to do. Until finally, we find ourselves in this movie saying like three words to each other. So that s how it s changed massively; we don t get to do it. I think it s a great travesty, and one of the great missed opportunities of this incarnation of the X-Men saga.Fassbender: Agreed. We do get to play a game of chess in this last one.McAvoy: We do. We do.Fassbender: We come full circle.(Photo by © Twentieth Century Fox)Reflecting on Each Other s PerformanceMcAvoy: My favorite performance of his in [the X-Men films] is definitely First Class because I think that was really, truly, actually a great film balancing an ensemble and giving everybody an arc and stuff, but in terms of who that film is really about, that was the origin story for Magneto in essence. And just getting to see him rock this… not just mutant leader figure, which he wasn t yet, but actually imbue it with a sort of James Bond, espionage, spy-like quality as well. That was just a wicked thing to do with your character.Fassbender: I would say Days of Future Past. Because you really go through the ringer in that one. And just in general, something with James, which is pretty impressive to see, is like, he s got a really good understanding of storytelling, like where the character is in the journey of the character and where it should end up at the end. Just that sort of awareness of a character journey. So much so that what we see in this last film – the germ of it was there in First Class, which was this idea that you had we ve always seen Professor X in such a positive light. He s always so giving and generous, and you were like, well, there s a flip side to that, you know. That there was an element of his ego that was there and to be explored, and of course, we see the whole effect of it here in this movie. So that s been cool to watch over four movies. That s impressive.Team Magneto or Team Professor X?McAvoy: There s a great line in Braveheart from the late actor, great actor, Ian Bannen, who said to Robert the Bruce when he s trying to caution him and say, don t go off and fight with William Wallace, right, even though it s the right thing to do, don t go and do it. He says, It s really easy to like him, isn t it? Because uncompromising men are easy to like. And it s true. Erik s so uncompromising, you re drawn to him. But also, he s always right as well. Humanity is going to stab us in the back, he says. And they do. They always do. So, I think I would go with Erik.Fassbender: I think I m going to go with Charles just because I think in order to move forward, you have to integrate. Because of that alone, I would have to stick with his ideology.(Photo by © Twentieth Century Fox)ON “CHERIK” – THE FAN-FICTION LOVE AFFAIR BETWEEN CHARLES AND ERIKMcAvoy: I feel like it might have been due to the “Cherik” shipping that after First Class, they restricted the amount of time we spend on screen together because they realized it was going to cause a lot of problems in certain parts of the world.Fassbender: You know, I think I know where it all started. Remember when we were storming that building in Russia, and we were laying in the long grass just chatting. It was like a scene in Out of Africa or something.McAvoy: Oh, in between takes.Fassbender: Yeah. And that s where, I think, it all started.Making Cherik a Throuple – with an MCU Hero or One of the X-MenFassbender: [After understanding the throuple question] I m going to go Sophie [Turner}, Jean Grey. Because she s the most powerful mutant out there. Well like, you know, if we re going to have a team, we re solid.James: I would definitely want to go with somebody who s a psychic because I think we could have some crazy, mind-bending fun. And so that would either be Jean Grey or Emma Frost.Fassbender: Sticking within our group. Mutants stick together.Dark Phoenix is in theaters now.Like this?

Captain Marvel is finally out in theaters and while it is set some 20 years prior to the current issues facing the Avengers following Avengers: Infinity War, the film offered a few intriguing clues to next month’s Avengers: Endgame and the ways Marvel’s newest hero may be involved in it. Also, there may even be some clues to the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the events of Endgame buried within Captain Marvel s plot. So let s dive in and see what we can guess about Marvel Studios next few moves from its most recent release.Of course, there are spoilers from here on out. Key spoilers in fact, so read on with caution.Carol Will Be Part Of The Fight(Photo by Marvel Studios)While all the previous Avengers: Endgame trailers have kept her presence something of a secret, Captain Marvel’s mid-credits stinger scene confirmed what just about everyone assumed would be the case – Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) will be part of the fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin). While Carol was not part of the team dedicated to stopping Thanos in the comic book story The Infinity Gauntlet, her predecessor Mar-Vell took on Thanos a number of times prior to the Gauntlet storyline.The release pattern of the two films certainly pointed to Carol’s presence in Endgame, but seeing her arrive at the Avengers base makes the team’s situation seem less dire. As seen in Captain Marvel, Carol is a powerhouse and potentially strong enough to physically restrain Thanos. And even when it comes to the Gauntlet, battered as it is at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, she may have an advantage.Carol Is Powered By The Space StoneBecause the psyche-magnetron – source of Carol s powers in the comics – was just a little too crazy for film, Carol’s powers derive from that old Phase I MacGuffin, the Tesseract. As we learn in Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell (Annette Bening) acquired the Tesseract in the 1980s and began using it to build a “light speed engine” capable of relocating the Skrull population far from the designs of the Kree Empire.Her experiment never really worked out, though, as the Kree attacked her experimental craft. Once it crashed, Carol blew up the engine, saturating her body with the energy of the Space Stone. As Ronan (Lee Pace) remarks late in the film, she’s the real weapon.And we think that might give her an advantage over Thanos if he tries to use the Gauntlet against the Avengers in Endgame. It is possible she may even be able to pry the Space Stone away from his control and make his absolute power a little less absolute. It may just be the thing the rest of the group needs to gain control of the Gauntlet and undo the Snap.At least, that’s one guess. Tying her to the Tesseract and even the Avengers Initiative makes sense on a thematic level, but it also suggests a ways for the Avengers to succeed in Endgame.Carol Hasn’t Aged(Photo by @ Marvel Studios)In the stinger scene, we couldn’t help but notice that Carol hasn’t aged. We’re going to assume that has something to do with the Space Stone energy. And while that may not really be a point to address in Endgame, it suggests subsequent Captain Marvel movies may keep their options in regards to story wide open.According to reports of Endgame footage screened for Disney shareholders on Thursday, Carol tells the Avengers she never returned to Earth because species other than the Skrulls needed her help. Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) page in the Infinity War credit sequence was the first indication Earth needed any sort of help. It suggests no one she knows out in the universe turned to dust, but she had to have noticed people vanishing en masse throughout her area of influence, right?That could suggest the Infinity Stones are not as powerful as legend tells, but we expect the more important aspect of Carol staying away from Earth is to set up future Captain Marvel movies set between the first film and Endgame. Alternatively, her lack of aging opens the door to a Captain Marvel 2 set after Endgame. After all, she has to explain herself to Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) and Monica Rambeau (Akira Akbar) at some point, right? They cannot be pleased that her estimated return time of “before you know it” is 20-odd years later.And now we have to wonder if either of them survived the Snap.No Skrull Secret Invasion … Not Yet Anyway(Photo by @ Marvel Studios)In one of the more pleasant and interesting turns within Captain Marvel, the shapeshifting Skrulls were not Carol’s ultimate enemy. Instead, we learn they are refugees from a Kree war of aggression. Their ultimate aim: escaping from the Empire’s grasp.In our extensive look at the Skrulls, we noticed they only became aggressive after encountering the Kree, entering into a war that spanned millennia. We were inclined to believe that would be the case in Captain Marvel as well and that it might lead to a Skrull invasion of Earth following Endgame. But with the Skrulls only taking to battle to defend themselves and their nominal leader Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) becoming Carol’s ally halfway through the film, that Skrull secret invasion seems much less likely than it did a week ago.Of course, we also took note of Mendelsohn s Talos as he proclaimed “this is only the beginning” when he was reunited with his fellow Skrulls aboard Mar-Vell’s ship. That may just be an artifact of the actor playing so many bad guys of late, but it could indicate a heel-turn from the character or the alien race as a whole in a subsequent MCU phase. For the moment, we’re happy to see that aspect of Captain Marvel’s script defy expectations and introduce the Skrulls in a new, sympathetic way.The Infinity WatchAnd while we’re pondering MCU Phases past Endgame, there is always the possibility Carol’s tie to the Space Stone will lead to her taking on a new role: its protector. After the events of the comics The Infinity Gauntlet, six people were chosen to take care of the Infinity Gems (as they were called at the time) in lieu of anyone obtaining the full powers of the Gauntlet again. The group included Gamora, Drax, Pip the Troll, Moondragon – two characters not yet seen in the MCU – and, shockingly, Thanos!(Photo by @ Marvel Studios)As in the comics, the Infinity Stones of the MCU cannot be destroyed, so everyone is better off knowing where they are rather than scattering them again only for someone (like, say, a Kree commander) to collect them and reassemble the Gauntlet.Should such a plan become an aspect of the post-Endgame MCU, Carol is the obvious choice to guard the Space Stone. She’s already tied to it. The plan would also presumably see Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) reclaiming the Time Stone and the Mind Stone recreating Vision (Paul Bettany). Considering the end of The Infinity Gauntlet, the Soul Stone could be entrusted to Thanos or it could returned to the Red Skull (Ross Marquand) – interesting that the Soul Stone would be safest in the possession of a villain – with the Reality Stone choosing to stay with the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Though her power originally came from the Mind Stone, she has been color- R.I.P. Stan Lee: The World Loses a LegendEvery Stan Lee Movie RankedMarvel Stars Pay Tribute to Stan LeeAll Upcoming Stan Lee Movie CameosAs the story often goes, Stan Lee, who passed away early Monday morning, was tired of working at Martin Goodman’s comic book company. His wife, Joan, suggested he pitch one last title and do it the way he felt a comic story should be told. Alongside genius co-creator Jack Kirby, his “last” comic book was The Fantastic Four, which lead to an ongoing series of new titles and ushered in the Marvel Age of comics.But Lee, who always hoped to leave comics behind to write the Great American Novel, also had bigger ambitious for characters he co-created, including The Fantastic Four, Thor, Black Panther, and The X-Men. Early on, he saw that they had the potential to transfer to other media. Here’s just a few way he helped comic books in transitioning to film and television.He Worked On The 1960s Marvel Super Heroes CartoonWhile still writing titles and acting as an editor and art director for Marvel in 1966, Lee also worked on Grantray-Lawrence Animation s The Marvel Super Heroes animated series. While Goodman negotiated the deal with Grantray-Lawrence and the company chose which Marvel characters would be featured, Lee nonetheless worked on the series, helping to reform stories written by him and people like Kirby, Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko, and others.The series focused on Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, and Namor. Each starred in their own sub-series ripped from the pages of Marvel s recent comic books. The animation generally consisted of photocopied images pulled directly from recent issues of the various characters’ comics — or even early issues of The Avengers — with the images manipulated to create the illusion of animation and limited lip-sync. But despite its technical limitations, the series expanded Marvel’s reach into homes all over the country, creating life-long fans thanks to memorable theme songs for Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. In interviews, Lee would admit he did not write the lyrics, but always wished he could claim those catchy tunes for himself.His Characters Came to Screen In the 1967 Fantastic Four Animated SeriesWhile not directly involved in the 1967 Hanna-Barbera Fantastic Four animated series, Lee’s influence could still be felt thanks to the story material adapted by the producers. Episodes featured key villains like The Mole Man and Galactus, while Dr. Doom’s origin received an episode-long origin story. The Skrulls and the Silver Surfer also made appearances and many of the stories were based on the early Lee and Kirby issues of Fantastic Four even as they were redesigned by Hanna-Barbera and comics legend Alex Toth.The series also led to the X-Men’s first television appearance when The Marvel Super Heroes adapted Fantastic Four #6, but substituted the Merry Mutants — referred to as “the Allies for Peace” — in for the FF, whose rights were already in the hands of Hanna-Barbera. Nowadays, rights confusion over characters is a well-known issue in the world of comics-to-screen adaptations, but this may be the first instance of comic-book characters disappearing from a television adaptation of one of their own stories.The 1970s: The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, and Dr. Strange Come to TVIn 1972, Lee became the publisher of Marvel Comics and largely left writing and creating to a new generation of writers, artists, and editors. And while he continued to have a hand in some creative aspects of the business – like the daily Spider-Man comic strip – Lee found himself shepherding the Marvel heroes through Hollywood as the characters began to emerge in the uncharted realm of live action. Before long, CBS debuted The Incredible Hulk.(Photo by ©Universal Television/courtesy Everett Collection)The 1977 series, starring Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner, was developed by Kenneth Johnson and followed the format of ABC s hit series The Fugitive. Each week, Banner would move into a new town and involve himself in local affairs until the Hulk explosively assisted Banner’s new friends. Sadly, word of the creature’s appearance would reach an investigative reporter hunting the Hulk, forcing Banner to look for peace somewhere else. The Incredible Hulk ran for five seasons.At nearly the same time, Lee sold CBS the rights to make a live-action version of The Amazing Spider-Man. Populating his world with new characters – J. Jonah Jameson was the only carryover in the regular cast – the show was not as successful as The Incredible Hulk, leading CBS to air it in a strange, inconsistent schedule. The two produced seasons amounted to only 13 episodes before the network pulled the plug.Nonetheless, the network soldiered on with a Dr. Strange pilot and two Captain America TV movies staring Reb Brown. Soon, Lee found himself spending more time in Los Angeles than in New York. In 1981, he and his wife finally moved to Los Angeles intent on making Marvel Productions a mover and shaker in film and television. Successes would include Marvel’s work on The Transformers and G.I. Joe. But after a handful of Incredible Hulk TV movies in the 1980s, television shows based on Marvel characters were few and far between. While Marvel regained a foothold in children s animation through the 1990s, it would not be until 2013’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that a Marvel live-action series would be a success.Lee s Characters Come to Dominate the Box Office, The MCU Is BornMeanwhile, on film, characters co-created by Lee grew to be a box office force in the early part of the 21st century. It all begins with 2000’s X-Men, which featured Lee and Kirby characters like Cyclops, Professor X, Magneto, and Jean Grey. Soon after, Lee and Ditko’s Spider-Man would star in his own film courtesy of director Sam Raimi.(Photo by Columbia/courtesy Everett Collection)But behind the scenes, Marvel was becoming less satisfied with their financial participation in films produced by 20th Century Fox and Sony. These films, based on the company’s most popular characters, inspired many of Marvel’s executives to try their hand at producing films on their own. With the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Blade, Daredevil, and a few others unavailable, the newly formed Marvel Studios looked closer at Lee and Kirby characters like Iron Man and Thor for inspiration.They also identified another key aspect of Lee’s writing to create a unique momentum with their films. From The Fantastic Four on, the Marvel Comics Universe was a (mostly) cohesive world. Most of the new superheroes Lee and Kirby created were based in New York and crossed over into each other’s titles. The concept may have been borrowed from DC Comics’ Golden Age Justice Society of America, but Lee, Kirby, Ditko, and others made their world feel alive and dynamic with the Fantastic Four guest starring in The Amazing Spider-Man and vice-versa. Soon enough, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Ant-Man. and the Wasp would form their own super team and revive Captain America to join their crew.Many years later, Marvel Studios would choose to adopt that crossover energy and lead to an Avengers of their own. As in comics, the pieces were always there to make it happen on film, but Lee’s efforts helped to point the way.The CameosAnd, of course, Stan Lee will leave a mark behind thanks to his penchant for making brief appearances in Marvel movies. It began innocuously enough in the 1989 TV movie The Trial of the Incredible Hulk and in some of the animated series, but that foundation led to his on-screen appearance in X-Men. He also appeared as a mail man in the first Fantastic Four film, receiving speaking lines. With his iconic look and distinctive voice, he would appear in all of the Marvel Studios films, as well as projects featuring characters he did not create, like Deadpool, and even make a cameo appearance in Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, poking fun at his hat-tip presence in comic book movies.(Photo by @ 20th Century Fox Film Corp. All rights reserved.)He also played himself in Kevin Smith’s 1995 film Mallrats, in which he gave main character Brodie (Jason Lee) some sage wisdom even as Brodie kept asking him about the Hulk’s junk.If nothing else, Lee was always a sport on film, playing strip club MCs, bus drivers, and concerned citizens helping people out of harm s way. He got in the characters ways sometimes, or even reminded them that one person can make a difference. As with the universe-building he indulged in during the 1960s, the notion of creator cameos predated Lee s Incredible Hulk appearance, but he and the directors of each project gave it a unique spin each time. And when the first Marvel film unspools without a cameo from Stan the Man, his absence will be felt.

She draws attention to disability representation and the lack of accessibility in many theaters she visits for screenings. She’s determined to not be the only person people think of when they hear “disability” and “criticism” in the same sentence.“I don t speak for everybody, and I would love to have more disabled critics that I could disagree with and be like, No, you’re wrong,” she told Rotten Tomatoes. “I can t speak for every single disability in the world. There is only so much time in the day that I can devote to writing, I can t hit everything. I need some other critics to help share the load with me.”Last year, Lopez contributed to Rotten Tomatoes first book, Rotten Movies We Love. Her take on The Greatest Showman – as with many of her reviews – suggests that our reactions to movies are personal, even sometimes contradictory, when it comes to style and story. As a disabled person, it s so flawed and ableist, but I love the music and the flash, she told Rotten Tomatoes.Lopez is a Los Angeles-based pop culture writer whose work can be found at Culturess, Forbes, The Movie Isle, Citizen Dame, and Remezcla, among many others.How do you watch award shows?For the first time last year, I watched the Oscars by myself. It was very, very odd, but it allowed me to sit in my pink PJs and eat sushi and yell at the TV, which was nice… I feel like award shows are not something you need to endure alone. You should have friends. Especially when things go wrong.What’s your favorite screening snack?I’m an M Ms person. I need to have something to keep my mind focused on a movie, and M Ms are one of those where I can just – I m sure annoying to whoever I m sitting next to – I can roll them around in my mouth and have something to focus on.Do you have a movie theater pet peeve?It’s the people that buy the handicap companion seat that they don t need… I ve been fortunate that if I ask somebody to move, nine times out of 10, they ll be like, Okay – but that s always my pet peeve.You’re sitting down to write. Do you prefer a shot of alcohol or espresso, and what is your spirit of choice?I m a writer, so I can either be an alcoholic or drink coffee, and I prefer to not be an alcoholic, so I drink coffee.Do you read other reviews before or after watching something?I will read reviews after I ve already seen something, mostly because I want to know if I am completely nuts liking or not liking something. I m like, What is everybody else saying? Then I ll see that they re all in love with the movie and I m sitting there thinking like, Okay, well, what s wrong with me? I didn t like it. (Photo by IFC Films)Is there an under-the-radar director or screenwriter that you think more people should know about?For me, it s the team of Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner. They ve been around forever, but I feel like every time they have something out, people are like, Oh, yeah. Why are they not doing more? I say, Well, they are. It s just they re not working with the big studio people yet.” Charlie Says is a really different type of Manson movie that s really feminist and biting about the misogyny and racism of that time, and it s awesome.What do you think is the biggest misconception about critics?The biggest misconception is that we hate movies – we only got into this to gripe about things we can t do, and I have to laugh. I never wanted to be a director. I ve never wanted to be a screenwriter. I love appreciating films and I love talking about them, especially in the last couple of years where I ve written about representation and disability. My goal now is I want to talk about movies that should be doing more or are doing really great when it comes to representation that nobody s talking about.I did not get into this business to work long hours, not make a ton of money, and just be berated on Twitter because I hate films. I got into this because I love movies and I love appreciating them and hopefully influencing somebody to go see something that I love.Is亚博电子竞技官网2011年以后，随着智能手机的普及，手游进入爆发式增长期，游戏研发商的选择是将之前的经典游戏改成手游，快速抢占市场，相比而言，游戏分成比例并不是最重要的。
In all the best teen TV series, the love triangle is a staple. Brenda/Dylan/Kelly and Brandon/Kelly/Dylan. Joey/Dawson/Jen and Dawson/Joey/Pacey. Archie/Betty/Jughead, Dean/Rory/Jess, Spike/Buffy/Angel and Willow/Oz/Tara … so many messy triangles.Never Have I Ever introduced us to another one during its debut season last year, so it’s not spoiling anything to tell you that the Paxton/Devi/Ben trio opens the Netflix dramedy’s second season, which has just launched on Netflix.But it would be a spilling a major spot of scoop to tell you just how out of control the love triangle action spirals in just the first two episodes, the many twists the teen romances take, and where all the players stand at the end of the season. What we will say: Devi is most definitely, officially with one of her equally delicious (hey, that’s what makes it so fun to watch!) love interests by the time the credits roll on the season 2 finale. But …(Photo by Isabella B. Vosmikova/Netflix)“The love triangle is yet to be sealed,” Paxton portrayer Darren Barnet (which is in no way a hint as to who Devi chooses, or who chooses her, at season’s end) told Rotten Tomatoes. “As much as (everything) in season 2 is answering it, you don’t know what is going to happen. This is high school, folks. People change their minds and get crazy every single day, so we’ve gotta wait and see.”OK, so you might have guessed that would be the case. And though the series has not yet been renewed for a third season, its massive success with season 1 during the pandemic (40 million households, internationally, watched the season) and the anticipation for its sophomore season return would make a lack of renewal shocking. Almost as shocking as what Devi (star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) does when she becomes jealous of the new girl and …(Photo by Netflix)Nope, not spoiling it. Suffice it to say that season 2 is such a winner because the writers, including series creator Mindy Kaling, introduced us to all these endearing characters in season 1, and they continue to allow their talented cast to flesh them out in ways both big and subtle, and in ways that allow them to grow, and remain endearing, in the new episodes.“Who is this guy? Is he someone who really genuinely does care, or is he someone who just has these little moments, but most of the time he’s a name-dropper, a bit overconfident, and rich and all that kind of stuff?” Ben portrayer Jaren Lewison said he wondered about his character. “I think season 2 does a really great job of showing that he does really genuine care, but he still is that person … he still is Ben Gross, he still likes to talk a lot about what his father does and his clients and some of his money. Sometimes you just shake your head and wanna say, ‘Ben why would you say that right now?’ But I think that’s part of what’s endearing about him … he’s a goofball who really cares, and sometimes he just says the wrong stuff.”(Photo by Netflix)Devi, and again, not a spoiler, undergoes the most growth, as the center of the love triangle and the entire series, but not without a lot of drama throughout the season. There’s tension with Aneesa (Megan Suri), the new girl at Sherman Oaks, Mrs. Vishwakumar’s (Poorna Jagannathan) plan to move Devi to India, and a falling out with her friend Eleanor (Ramona Young). And as therapist Dr. Ryan (Niecy Nash) points out to her, Devi is still mourning the death of her father, which is manifesting itself in ways that continue to unmoor her.“In the words of (Devi’s friend) Fabiola (Lee Rodriguez), Devi’s sort of always fighting with someone,” Ramakrishnan said. “I will say, it is very fun to play a hot mess, but it requires a lot of figuring out why she s being a hot mess. Like, even though Devi is doing some crazy lashing out, she s doing that because there s something else going on. Not to excuse her crap, but (it’s about), ‘Why do you think this is reasonable?’ And then understanding that why, because I have to make it convincing for the audience.”All of Devi’s pals are also going through teen trials, from Eleanor’s own love triangle to Fab feeling pressure to change to fit in with her girlfriend Eve and Eve’s friends. And Aneesa, well, that’s a spoiler, but there is a reason she left her private school to transfer to Sherman Oaks.(Photo by Netflix)Inside Casa Vishwakumar, Devi’s cousin Kamala (Richa Moorjani) is working with a shady colleague who won’t give her respect or credit for an important medical discovery she makes, while Devi’s mom, Nalini, butts heads with a very handsome fellow doctor, played by Common, and sparks fly. But Nalini, too, is still dealing with the loss of her husband, Mohan (Sendhil Ramamurthy).“Season 2 is such a huge lesson about grief, and that moving forward is just not the same thing as moving on,” Jagannathan said.The bottom line on season 2 is that there is plenty of drama and comedy to send you breezing through 10 episodes (including one, episode three, devoted to Paxton and his backstory). And it’s going to have you hankering for another dose of Devi and the gang ASAP.

(Photo by Courtesy New Line Cinema Warner Bros. Pictures)When Warner Brothers pushed the release date for Mortal Kombat back an extra week to give some room to its other pandemic water-tester, Godzilla vs. Kong, few people anticipated they were going to have their own one-on-one match for the top of the box office this weekend. All eyes were on the tournament of Outworld (that turned out to not even have a tournament), while Sony’s acquired Funimation line was about to sneak in and nearly knock-out the video game adaptation.King of the Crop: Mortal Kombat Finishes Demon Slayer, But What A Fight!Mortal Kombat and highly anticipated anime Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train fought for top spot this weekend, and they also duked it out for the claim of Second Best Opening since the pandemic – both opened ahead of Wonder Woman 1984’s .7 million Christmas weekend opening, but trailed Godzilla vs. Kong’s .6 million start. It was Mortal Kombat that would take both honors, with a .5 million haul, compared to Demon Slayer s .5 million.The 1995 Mortal Kombat film opened to .2 million on an August weekend just before kids started going back to school and finished with just over million. Given the recent diminishing returns on the hybrid HBO Max titles, it appears unlikely the 2021 version will reach that total. But even a low-ball figure between and million is further ahead than where Wonder Woman 1984 and Tom Jerry ultimately settled. A good sign, but perhaps not quite the evidence we were looking for that theatrical is making a significant comeback.Demon Slayer, on the other hand, is a triumph for Funimation. Its last theatrical release, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, opened to .8 million in January 2019 and went on to gross .7 million. Demon Slayer’s .8 million from Thursday night previews is also in line with pre-pandemic Thursday night totals for films such as Ready Player One (which grossed the same), and is actually stronger even such titles as Mad Max: Fury Road (.7 million) and the original Iron Man (.5 million).The 0 Million Watch: Godzilla vs. Kong Is Coming for the Milestone(Photo by © Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures)The industry has been watching closely to see if Godzilla vs. Kong is going to be the first film during the pandemic to reach the one-time lauded milestone of 0 million. After 10 days of release it had grossed million; the last film we saw do that was Disney’s Onward last March. By day 19 it had reached million; the last film to do that was Sonic the Hedgehog last February, which actually did that in its first week, but who’s counting? GvK coming in with million in its fourth weekend is closely aligned with the fourth weekend go-round for Tom Jerry (.8 million) and Raya and the Last Dragon (.76 million). Since that time, both of those films have made around an additional -11 million each. Godzilla vs. Kong currently sits at .5 million. Tom Jerry has made a little over million since it was taken off of HBO MAX on its 31st day. There are only five more days to catch GvK at home: After that, will it hold on long enough to cross the 0 million barrier? It is certainly going to be close and we’ll monitor it right here.On These Dates In Box Office History (Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)April 24: In 2011, the Easter hit, Hop, grossed .73 million on this, its 24th day of release to cross the 0 million mark.April 25: An even greater family-movie milestone was hit on this day in 2014 when Disney’s Frozen grossed ,742 to pass 0 million at the domestic box office. It was its 155th day of release. The sequel crossed that same milestone in just 35 days in 2019.What Should Have Been: A Different Day for Wright s Last NightInitially scheduled for September 25 last year, Edgar Wright’s Last Night In Soho was moved to this weekend; unfortunately, it was subsequently moved again to October 22 of this year.

After a year off the air, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC for its sixth season on Friday, May 10 with a refreshed premise, a seeming departure from its big screen Marvel Cinematic Universe cousin, and a new director at the center of television’s Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. Luckily, Rotten Tomatoes had the chance to visit S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ and debrief the cast ahead of the new season s premiere.As first revealed at the end of season 5, Alfonso Mackenzie — better known as “Mack” — succeeded the dying Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) as the head of the agency after Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) turned down the position. Season 6 picks up sometime after Coulson’s apparent death, with Mack now firmly entrenched as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s director. It is a leadership role actor Henry Simmons, who plays Mack, said he loves. In previous seasons, Mack was most frequently seen offering a bewildered punchline about the group s latest adversary or impossible scenario. But now he s front and center.“Now, you have to drive the scenes as a director. I was talking with Clark about this, Simmons said. The weird thing is when you become director you feel responsible for each person, for what s happening in the scene. It s weird. And I enjoy that. I am grateful for the fact that they put it in my hands.”(Photo by ABC/Mitch Haaseth)As the actor recalled, Mack started as a mechanic who wound up in S.H.I.E.L.D. prior to the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He first became part of Coulson’s team when another faction of S.H.I.E.L.D. wanted to test their loyalty following the revelation that Hydra had infiltrated the organization. But after years of dealing with demons and traveling though time, Mack grew to respect Coulson and his team.And as seen in some of the previews for the new season, Mack still refers back to a hologram of Coulson contained within Nick Fury’s (Samuel L. Jackson) toolbox from earlier seasons.“This is a daily thing,” Simmons explained. “Mack really relies on this hologram for advice, for direction … there s a lot to deal with. We have a member that s out there somewhere, a team member that we have to find. And we have an occurrence that s happening around Earth that is unpredictable and deadly.”Both objectives will hopefully allow Mack to prove to himself he was the right choice to succeed Coulson, a theme executive producer Jeff Bell said will recur through the season. In the same way that Coulson questioned his ability after Fury — Can I be a director? Do I have what it takes? — I think Mack is going through his own version of that, he said.Meanwhile, the missing team member Simmons mentioned is Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), who also died at the end of season 5. But thanks to the malleable nature of time travel on the series, an earlier version of Fitz is still alive somewhere in deep space and it’s up to a team comprised of Daisy, Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), Agent Piper (Briana Venskus), and Agent Davis (Maximilian Osinski) to find him.(Photo by ABC/Mitch Haaseth)For Daisy, the mission is particularly fraught considering the future version of Fitz tried to kill her to prevent the world from ending. (Things got a little crazy last season.) But this Fitz never hurt her.“I think the one thing that connects all of them is that they re all trying to be the best versions of themselves, but still at the end of the day, there s darkness within every character, Bennet said.That darkness may be most apparent in Jemma Simmons, whose dedication to finding Fitz tests the patience of the others as the season begins.“Ethically she s just so biased on finding him. So she is not worried about other people s feelings. She doesn t care what the consequences are,” Henstridge said of her character’s state of mind. She noted the character has become single-minded before, but never to this extent — threatening the lives of the others. “She s can t fit anything else in her head at the moment, because as soon as she starts to think about other people, she ll start to think about the crazy odds of what she s trying to do and she ll break down.”For Piper and Davis, the mission means a certain sacrifice, but for Venskus and Osinski, it means a promotion. After appearing on the series off-and-on for the past four years, both will feature regularly for the first time this season. It means an expansion of the characters and a new role for them to share.“We are kind of like the everyman of the show,” Osinski explained, adding, “We don t have superpowers; we don t have robotic arms or special weapons. Said Venskus, “We re the ones who are more surprised by things still — which is kind of cool. We provide that comedic relief of being, like, ‘This isn t normal, right?’”They are, however, highly trained S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who managed to survive just about every upheaval since S.H.I.E.L.D. s initial fall in The Winter Soldier. As Venskus put it, that means Piper went to from learning about aliens in her first episode to treating space travel like “no big deal” in season 6. And if previous seasons are any indication, the duo s deep space adventure will continue for quite awhile.(Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Back on Earth, Mack and the rest of the team face those anomalies Simmons mentioned. They crisscross the planet in something resembling a pattern. And as previews have hinted at, it may have something to do with Gregg’s new character, Sarge; a sort of “anti-Coulson” who is as much of a mystery as the anomalies.“They have a similar drive and focus,” Gregg said of Coulson and Sarge. “They re both, I think, not someone whose willpower you want to question. But everything else, the moral framework, all that stuff, is different.”According to executive producer Jed Whedon, Sarge’s frame of mind will be “so shocking to people” that it “actually has its own power.” At the same time, watching Sarge make the choices he does while looking and sounding like Coulson “gives those moments more weight than they normally would have.”“It was very, very hard to get my balance,” Gregg said of switching gears into Sarge. “It really felt odd. There s a part of [his thinking] that s so clean. He has a mission and he does [it] life means nothing to him. He wants what he wants. And he s going to get it done. And that s very freeing, and it s kind of sexy, it feels like it s fun. And yet I had a lot of questions about how he s justifying that.”One character also having a hard time justifying Sarge’s presence is Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen). She stayed with Coulson during his last days and returned to S.H.I.E.L.D. a “freer” person. As Wen put it, “She doesn t have the burden of dealing with either him being sick or die or come back after he died and die again.”(Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Of course, that sense of freedom gets “skewered” when she first sees Sarge.“It s a moment of disbelief and major angst for her,” Wen explained. But once May understands the real story behind Sarge, the character will have a familiar Melinda May reaction. “She s pissed,” Wen added. “She s really pissed.”Beyond her reaction to Coulson, May brings her experience and honesty back to S.H.I.E.L.D. This includes an advisory role to Mack and Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova- Buckley). The latter continues to serve as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and, but Cordova-Buckley noted that her character has undergone a shift from the rebellious Yo-Yo we first met.“It was really interesting for me to go from a girl that s so [about] her word, her mind, her beliefs, and always really going against anything that goes against that, Cordova-Buckley said, to now saying, You know what, there s a bigger picture. I need to be more diplomatic. I need to settle the fire down and find my way within the institution, the bureaucracy, and all that stuff. ”That said, Cordova-Buckley said Yo-Yo may still decline a leadership position within S.H.I.E.L.D., although she would become a great leader if circumstances forced the role upon her.“I get a sense that she would rather be a mentor of sorts to young children, to Inhumans coming up, to sort of be the leader underground, she said. Not the face of [a group]. (Photo by ABC/Matthias Clamer)Circumstances always change quickly for S.H.I.E.L.D., both within its world and without. Last season, events appeared to coincide with Thanos s (Josh Brolin) arrival on Earth to collect the Time and Mind Stones. But as the series was unclear when it would coming back — or even if it would come back — they could not plan a proper connection with the events of Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame. That means the slightest bit of retconning will be on display in the season to come.“However the Time Lords want to work it out, all of this had to happen before the Snap,” executive producer Jeph Loeb explained. “Otherwise, we d be living in the world that was brilliantly showed in Endgame.”Then again, perhaps Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will employ the notion of tangent timelines to explain itself in some yet-to-be-written episode. The show always excels at finding the odd corners of the MCU to examine and that would be a fine one to use. In the meantime, though, S.H.I.E.L.D. has plenty of personal crises and intergalactic stakes to keep themselves busy ahead of the already planned season 7.Like this?

When he did finally debut in theaters, under the guidance of Sam Raimi, he not only kicked off one of the most successful superhero franchises ever, but also helped lay the groundwork for the massive paradigm shift in Hollywood that would eventually bring us the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, for starters. Of course, Sony Pictures efforts to retain the rights to the character have famously resulted in two reboots and a parallel animated series, but the results overall have been rather spectacular. Raimi s original trilogy starring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, the MCU-related films with Tom Holland in the role, and the animated Into the Spider-Verse have all largely been critically acclaimed money-makers, and even the first of Andrew Garfield s two outings as the famous wallcrawler is generally well regarded. Spidey may be a late bloomer compared to his DC counterparts, but he s been the most consistent solo hero of them all.5.

In the Better Call Saul season 5 finale, Mike again goes to bat for Nacho. Gus already turned down Nacho’s request to leave the drug business because he’s worried about the safety of his father. Mike again asks Gus to consider Nacho’s safety when Nacho unexpectedly found himself personally transporting Lalo back to Mexico. When Mike finds out about the assassins, and that Nacho is likely to get caught in the crossfire, he suggests they try to save Nacho. Gus refuses.Which makes us wonder: If something does happen to Nacho and/or his family because Gus wouldn’t allow him to leave his operation, how will Mike be able to continue working for Gus, so shortly after Werner’s death?Or would not being able to save another person he cares about from Gus’ destruction just make Mike even more resigned to his own role in Gus’ quest for global domination and revenge against Don Eladio and the Salamancas?Why Isn’t Kim in Breaking Bad?With the final season up next, we can no longer ignore the fact that something bad must happen to Kim, because she is never seen nor mentioned in Breaking Bad. And given just how important she is to Jimmy, it stands to reason something really, really bad happens for her to not even rate a mention.So, is Kim a victim of Lalo? Does she get caught up in another of Jimmy’s schemes, with yet another of his shady associates? Does she have a run-in with a shady client of her own?Or, as per that scheme to ruin Howard Hamlin she outlined for Jimmy in the season 5 finale, does Kim end up in legal hot water of her own? Does her suggestion that she and Jimmy frame Howard so they can get Jimmy’s share of the Sandpiper money and use it to help those who can’t otherwise afford top legal services land her in jail?Heartbreaking as that would be, it’s probably more optimistic than anyone should be about the future of Jimmy’s bride. Though levity abounds throughout the series, it is a drama, and a tragic one at that. The Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul teams have pulled off an astonishing number of twists and turns and surprises big and small, and though we have no doubt they’ll continue to surprise us with the specifics, it’s tough to see any good end coming for Kim Wexler’s story or how it could be anything but directly tied to some action taken by Jimmy.We can’t stop thinking about what Howard said to Kim at the courthouse in “Something Unforgivable,” after he tried to warn her how out of contro Jimmy is: “You know who really knew Jimmy?” Howard asked. “Chuck.”What Happens to Gene Takovic, aka Cinnabon Gene?The boldness of Jimmy McGill and Saul Goodman gave way to the timidity of Gene Takovic, the Cinnabon-slingin’ alter ego Jimmy/Saul adopted when he was forced to go on the lam at the end of Breaking Bad. It’s a lonely existence for the once shiny bright (and we don’t just mean those suit and tie ensembles) barrister, with copious amounts of alcohol and a recliner in his cookie-cutter Omaha apartment seemingly his only comforts.But season 5 of Better Call Saul opened with the best Gene flashforward yet, and the only Gene update of the season. That creepy cab driver who transported him from the hospital at the end of season 4 turned out to be a former ABQ resident – the odds! – who also happened to be a big fan of those ubiquitous “Better Call Saul” ads, benches, and matchbook promos. So when Jimmy was in his cab, he realized who he was, despite the thinner ’do and more modest clothing. Not only did Jeff, the cabbie, recognize Saul, but he followed him to the mall where he works, and, with a tall, menacing friend accompanying him, let Gene know he was never far away, and would be seeing him again soon. That sent Gene straight to the mall payphone, where he called Ed Galbraith, the vacuum cleaner repairman/fixer who helped him flee New Mexico (and who was so brilliantly played by the late Robert Forster).Gene was ready to pack up his belongings (including that Band-Aid tin that, we finally learned, was filled with a ton of small diamonds) and, with Ed’s help, hit the road again, but just as they were finalizing the getaway, Gene’s face changed, and he told The Fixer he’d decided to fix his problem himself.Does that mean Jimmy/Saul got a bit of the old spark back and has a new scheme for dealing with Jeff and company? Was perhaps the mere mention of his old persona all it took to give Jimmy/Saul his confidence back?Or what if there is no scheme? What if Jimmy/Saul learned a lot more than wheelin’ and dealin’ from his old associates? What if Jeff and his friend will soon be staring down the business end of a more permanent solution to Gene problem? Like, say, a trip to Belize?Are there other questions you want answered in the season 6 conclusion of Better Call Saul? Tell us in the comments!
Potterheads, rejoice! A Harry Potter series is in the works. Probably. Maybe. Same with an animated Game Of Thrones spin-off. Vikings: Valhalla and Sandman castings announced and more of the week s top TV and streaming news.TOP STORYWhat Took So Long? Harry Potter and His Hogwarts Friends May Be Headed to Streaming(Photo by Warner Bros.)The only true surprise about Harry Potter finding his way to television is that it’s taken this long. HBO Max executives are on the search for writers to craft a pitch for a series that would send the boy wizard and his friends to the streaming service, THR.com reports.Bringing an adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s wildly successful seven-book, eight-movie series to TV is in the “extremely early stages,” according to the report, with no cast attached. HBO Max and Warner Bros. issued a statement denying a TV project is in the works, but THR sources say several discussions have taken place to develop a series.The Potter movies have earned more than billion worldwide, and, despite recent controversial comments by Rowling that many consider transphobic, the property remains a hugely popular one, from amusement park tie-ins to the Fantastic Beasts prequel movies.Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser Teaming for Apple TV+ Prison Drama(Photo by Giles Keyte. TM and copyright ©20th Century Fox Film Corp.

Keene’s personal experience, as an inmate offered freedom for getting a suspected killer to confess, is the story of the book.Egerton, who won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Elton John in the biopic Rocketman, would play the Keene role, with, presumably, Richard Jewel star Hauser playing the alleged serial killer.Lehane, the novelist who has also written for The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, and The Outsider, will write and executive produce the limited series. Egerton will also be an EP on the project, and Berlin Station director Michael Roskam will direct the miniseries.Better Call Saul, Ted Lasso, The Mandalorian Among AFI’s Best TV Shows of 2020(Photo by © 2020 Lucasfilm Ltd. ™.
