While we have somewhat of an idea of what is in store for the next phase of Marvel Studios’ plan, the full plan has yet to be revealed. There are a handful of films such as The Eternals, Black Widow, Doctor Strange 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and a few other we know are in active development. But there are five years worth of movies that we are still waiting to be announced!
There’s a chance that one of those movies could be for a fourth Thor film. In a recent interview with LA Times, Tessa Thompson talked about reprising her role as Valkyrie in Avengers: Endgame, and she also revealed that she heard that a pitch for Thor 4 has already been made to the studio and that director Taika Waititi could come back to helm it.
"I heard that a pitch has happened for [another Thor film]. I don't know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika would come back."
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see another Thor movie happen under the direction of Waititi, after all, Thor: Ragnarok was easily the best Thor film that has been made. Fans loved that film and the comedic tone that it had. I’d definitely like to see more of that! Waititi was previously asked if he would come back to direct another Thor film and he said:
“Yeah, people ask me, Would you do another one,’ and for sure I’d do another one because it wouldn’t even feel like doing a fourth Thor film, it would just feel like doing the second Ragnarok film. There’s been this reinvention in an exciting way … So it’s exciting cuz it feels like, if Chris were to do this again it wouldn’t feel like ‘oh it’s the eighth time I’ve done Thor,’ no it will feel like the second or third time I’ve done this character. Same with Mark [Ruffalo].”
Chris Hemsworth also previously said he would be up for another Thor film and that he would love to work with Waititi on it again.
"We gave cheers to Thor 3. But it also was like what could we do with four? We could do this and this. We were throwing ideas around. But also, just to work together again. That was one of the most enjoyable creative partnerships I’ve ever had.
"It just depends on how The Avengers (movies) all wrap up. I finished shooting and now they are going to edit it and see how the stories play out. There are so many interwoven scenes and stories and characters."
Well, Marvel Studios is obviously considering a fourth Thor movie and if it happens, it will be interesting to see what kind of story it will tell. What would you like to see happen in a Thor 4 movie?
Are you excited for Spider-Man: Far From Home? If you’re like me, your answer is, “yes, but I don’t care until I see Endgame next week!” Well, that’s all well and good and I don’t blame you. However, a new reason to get excited for Far From Home is that it will be in theaters sooner than expected.
Although the film was slated to release on July 5, it turns out that the date has moved to July 2. The change probably came as a means to help capitalize on Independence Day. I really don’t mind as that just means I get to see it sooner.
Marvel has been keeping a tight lid on some details about Far From Home including where in the MCU timeline it takes place. The reason is to prevent revealing anything from Avengers: Endgame which is the Marvel event of the year.
Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series! Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!
Far From Home also stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Michael Keaton, J.B. Smoove, Samuel L. Jackson, and Numan Acar.
Jon Watts is directing the film from a script written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters July 5th, 2019.
Are you going to catch Far From Home on an earlier date now?
South Korean actor Ma Dong-seok, also known as Don Lee is going to be making his American film debut in Marvel’s The Eternals. Unfortunately, Dong-seok’s role is being kept a secret so there’s no telling who he’ll be.
Rumor has it that the story will focus on Sersi who is said to be played byAngelina Jolie with Kumail Nanjianialso in talks for the film.
The Eternals was created by the legendary Jack Kirby, and the story is set millions of years ago “when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as the Deviants.” Those two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.
Chloe Zhao (The Rider) is directing the film from a script written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. The studio is preparing to start shooting the film this year.
Are you getting excited for The Eternals? What role should the Train to Busan star play?
Here’s an awesome video for all you Game of Thrones fans that shows some super cool behind the scenes footage of the series preparing and shooting for this final season. It includes interviews with David Benioff, writer and executive producer on the show, executive producer Bernadette Caulfield, writer Dave Hill, some backstage footage of Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks) and Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), who got to guest star in an episode, and lots of regular cast members you all know and love.
A real highlight for the cast and crew though, was when George Lucas stopped by the set unexpectedly. Benioff said that when they heard Lucas was coming by the set, they thought it was a practical joke. But it wasn’t!
Director David Nutter said it was such a treat to see Lucas in his directing chair. Nutter had him speak to Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington after the scene he watched to give them notes, and you can see him joking around with them. Benioff said his earliest memories of making up stories began when he was a child playing with Star Wars action figures, and credits Lucas for many people’s love of big, epic storytelling.
It’s a really cool video! Check it out below, but make sure you’re all caught up on the series and have watched last week’s episode, or things may get spoilery for you. Enjoy!

Some of the biggest fans of the MCU have been coming up with theories and connections between the movies leading up to their conclusion with next week’s movie, Avengers: Endgame. Today we have a fan theory from comicbook that brings up a conversation that took place in Iron Man 2. Tony Stark visits Whiplash in jail after he attacks a crowd of people, and when Tony asks his why he did it, considering there was no way he would get away with it, Whiplash responded, "If you can make a God bleed, people will cease to believe in him." So he was trying to prove that he could get to Tony Stark, that he wasn’t as indestructible as people thought, and the people who believed in him should know that.
Now we go forward to Avengers: Infinity War, in the scene where Tony Stark and his team are battling Thanos on Titan with little progress being made, but Tony does draw a drop of blood on Thanos. This is laughable to Thanos, as he knows that Tony can’t defeat him. He laughs and says, "All that for a drop of blood?" Obviously, Thanos was mocking Iron Man, but Tony likely didn’t take it that way. He was probably tying it all back to that moment in Iron Man 2, and realized that even if he wasn’t going to be able to defeat Thanos there and then, at least he was able to prove to himself that Thanos wasn’t indestructable, and someday, in some way would be able to be taken down.
What do you think? Do you believe this was a pivotal moment for Tony Stark? How do you think they will take the mad Titan down in the end? (Not a pun on the Ant-Man in Thanos’ butt joke, just a happy coincidence).
Bad news for Stranger Things creators the Duffer Brothers yesterday, as they were hoping to see the plagiarism case they’ve been fighting get thrown out. They had no such luck. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern used a lot of fancy verbiage, but essentially said that it’s a he-said they-said situation without a whole lot of evidence, so it’s off to court they go.
The he in the situation is filmmaker Charlie Kessler, who used to be a friend of the Duffers. Kessler has written and directed some short films over the years, as well as worked as crew on all of the Netflix Marvel series. Kessler claims in his initial April 2018 filing that he told the Duffers four years ago about his idea for a story that is essentially Stranger Things.
The Duffers say there is nothing to this claim and that Kessler is just in this for a payout. I have no idea who is telling the truth. I just don’t want it to affect the future of Stranger Things. I guess we will find out more next month when they go back to court.
Here’s a cool new poster for Avengers: Endgame for you all to enjoy today that shows three of our original Avengers looking to their pasts — possibly for strength in this time of uncertainty, wherein they must dig deep within themselves to accomplish the task at hand. It’s been fun to see the latest clips and posters and photos and art this week as we are now in single digit days until we get to the release of Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of 22 movies, and the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pretty exciting, guys!
And our excitement is not only anticipated, but it’s being counted on by the Marvel and Disney executives. Endgame has been given the largest marketing campaign in history with a reported $200 million already spent on the merchandise, the TV spots, the ads, and everything else getting us pumped up for the movie!
It’s pretty smart though, because the movie is set to make more than that just in its opening weekend, and the toys and clothes and everything else are as popular as ever and seem to just keep getting cooler.
Check out the poster below and let us know how pumped you are for Avengers: Endgame!

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for Fast & Furious Present: Hobbs & Shaw. This is the trailer that was screened at CinemaCon earlier this month and this thing is locked and loaded with all kinds of badass action packed footage that’s going to blow you away! Seriously, this new Hobbes and Shaw movie looks like it’s going to be the best and craziest film in the Fast and Furious franchise. Just wait until you watch this!
In this film Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham find themselves facing off with Idris Elba, who is a super-powered villain! I am 100% on board with this movie looks like it’s going to be a hell of a fun ride!
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.
But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.
Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film will be released on August 2nd, 2019!

It’s seems like it’s been a long time since Mike Myers has starred in anything. He’s had bit parts in films here and there and even hosted The Gong Show, but it looks like he’s finally found a new project that is worth dedicating himself to.
Variety reports that Myers has jumped on board a new Netflix comedy series that he will star in and executive produce. The half-hour series has received a six-episode order, and it will feature Myers portraying multiple characters.
In a statement Myers said, “I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in.” I used to be a big fan of Meyers in the 90s during his SNL and Wayne’s World days. He’s kinda fallen off the radar over the years, but I would love to see him back in action and watch him do some great comedy again. Hopefully, this series gives him that opportunity.
The series doesn’t have a title yet, but let us know if you’re looking forward to seeing Myers doing comedy again.
