The first official teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home is finally here, which you can check out below:
In the third outing of the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: No Way Home sees the titular character asking Dr. Strange for help. If you remember in the previous Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio and Spider-Man battle, and in the end Mysterio exposes Spider-Man as Peter Parker in the real-world.
Peter asks Dr. Strange to put a spell on the planet to make everyone forget that he was Spider-Man, and in typical Peter/Spider-Man fashion, he talks too much and then something goes wrong with Dr. Strange's spell. The world changes, and out pops a familiar and iconic nemesis of Spider-Man from the Tobey MacGuire-led original Spider-Man trilogy: Doc Oc.
Battlefield 2042 is still a couple of months away, but there's a technical playtest going on right now on multiple platforms and someone has just broken their NDA to upload some Battlefield 2042 gameplay up, and onto YouTube. Check it out:
It is very early... remember this is the Battlefield 2042 technical playtest... and not the full game. It's probably very early, but it is shaping up well so far. The videos are being pulled left, right, and center -- with EA copyright striking them as fast as they pop up.
EA DICE's ongoing Battlefield 2042 technical playtest looks super janky and is here to just test the game itself, stress EA's servers, and the gameplay mechanics of Battlefield 2042 itself. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far, and I want to see a lot... a lot, a lot, a lot more.
Lord of the Rings fans have finally received what they have patiently been waiting for - a release date for Amazon's new Lord of the Rings show.
For those that don't know, Amazon's new Lord of the Rings TV show is based thousands of years before the events of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The TV show will focus on the events that transpired in the Second Age of Middle-Earth, which is sourced from J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
Amazon has already spent a whopping $465 million on the first season, making it the most expensive TV show ever made. Amazon has also renewed the show for a second season, so if the first season's episodes are hit, fans won't have to wait much longer to receive new ones. The release date was revealed by The Lord of the Rings on Prime Twitter account, who posted the show's first image with the following caption: On September 2, 2022, a new journey begins.
Warner Bros. might have screwed Zack Snyder, but Netflix is embracing the director and his production company Stone Quarry Productions with a new first-look film deal.
The new two-year deal will see a sequel to Netflix exclusive Army of the Dead, with Army of the Dead 2 heading into production -- with Snyder heading back into the director's chair. Snyder also just signed a new deal with Netflix for his new sci-fi epic Rebel Moon, which falls under this new deal with Netflix.
Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter: "My goal and hope are to bring as much quality content as I can and do it on a giant scale. Big projects and big movies".
Rick and Morty fans are enjoying the new episodes that Adult Swim have put out for season 5, but one thing is bothering them.
One thread on the Rick and Morty subreddit has raised a very interesting question, "where is Rick's portal gun, and why isn't he using it?". Rick's portal gun is a key component of what makes Rick and Morty such an interesting show, as the portal gun allows Rick to travel to any dimension giving him "god-like" powers - outlined in many of the episodes.
The portal gun has yet to be seen in season 5, and fans are wondering why. Some fans speculate that there is some kind of twist teed up for them in the future episodes where they find out that the entire season has been a stimulation and not canonical to the show. Other fans speculate that it's the development of Rick's character, suggesting that Rick is adjusting his behavior to be more accommodating for his family.
Marvel fans have been waiting for this moment for many years, and now it has finally happened - Deadpool has interacted with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) fans speculated that Deadpool would eventually crossover to the MCU. Now, a new video has surfaced showing Deadpool sitting on a couch with beloved MCU character Korg. Both Korg and Deadpool watch the trailer for the upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie Free Guy that will be hitting theaters on August 13.
Closer to the end of the movie, Deadpool asks Korg if he has any tips for him getting into the MCU. Korg replies by saying, "have a dream, chase it, lose that dream, just sabotage all sorts of happiness in pursuit of that dream, climb up to the peaks of that mountain and when you get to the top land at the bottom and realize you're never going to achieve that dream and at that point check your emails. Maybe you'll get something from your agent saying that Marvel wants to talk."
During the filming of a stunt for Discovery's Shark Week, a Jackass star has had a bad encounter with a shark after suffering a bite.
The Jackass group is known for pushing the limits of what is considered a "dangerous stunt", and the last stunt is a testament to that as Jackass star Sean "Poopsie" McInerney risked it all by attempting to jump over a shark in shark-infested waters. Using what seems to be a wakeboard, Poopsie was pulled along by a jetski towards a floating ramp. After hitting the ramp, Poopsie lost control and splashed down into the waters, where he was later bitten on the hand by a shark.
Luckily, McInerney safely made it back to the boat with the assistance of safety divers, where he was met with immediate medical assistance and transported back to shore. Jackass star Steveo showed signs of relief learning that McInerney didn't lose any fingers and that it was only one bite, saying, "This was only one bite in one spot? And he's not missing anything?".
At this year's Witchercon, Superman and Witcher star Henry Cavill reveals some insights on how he portrayed Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix series.
Geralt now his three different personas: the introspective Geralt in books, the massive wall of muscle in the TV show, and the lithe, sly bantering swordsman in the games. There's a lot of source material to work from, and Henry Cavill talks about how he wants to make his Geralt both authentic and unique.
For Cavill, Geralt is a deadly survivalist with a bent towards philosophy and rationality--in other words he's not just a "white-haired brute."
Zack Snyder is coming off of his Netflix exclusive Army of the Dead, with the announcement of another Netflix exclusive: Rebel Moon.
Rebel Moon is the next feature film for Snyder with the sci-fi epic centered around a mysterious young woman who is tasked with building a team to fend off an invasion from Rebel Moon's big bad: Regent Balisarius. Rebel Moon has been built as an original property that Snyder pitched for the "Star Wars" universe before the 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney.
Snyder will be making Rebel Moon into its own beast in the way of Army of the Dead with a prequel film and anime series, with production of Rebel Moon to kick off in early 2022 and no actors have been announced just yet. It would be good to see Snyder work with some of the actors from Zack Snyder's Justice League -- I'd love to see Henry Cavill in a sci-fi epic as the villain.
Art comes in all different shapes and sizes, and sometimes when you come across an extraordinary piece of art, it can almost appear as "magic".
Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon posted to his personal Instagram a set of images that show off a real-life Rick from Rick and Morty. The artist behind these incredible model paintings is jrahmier, and if you check out his Instagram page, you will find many other models of notable movie characters, cartoons, actors, and celebrities - all painted in the same fantastic quality.
Dan Harmon quoted Arthur C. Clarke, who said, "sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". Harmon says he feels the same way about art, saying, "I don't understand how people can draw anything other than garfield. but this is literally magic to me. disturbing magic, too." For those that don't know, Rick and Morty began as a parody of Back to the Futures Doc and Marty, which means that the real-life Rick is actually Christopher Lloyd.
