Spider-Man: Far From Home cast, release date, filming, villains and everything else we know about Spidey's next big swing

Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch Phase 4 of the MCU, picking up wherever Avengers 4 leaves us, and forming the middle chapter of a new Spidey trilogy. So far we've seen Tom Holland's gawky teen Peter Parker adjusting to his new powers in three seperate Marvel movies, but what does the future hold for him now that his origin story is fully told? 

Far From Home is currently in production but details are already coming through thick and fast - with plenty of knock-on rumours about Avengers 4 and the rest of the MCU. Check back here for regular updates and any Spidey news as we get it.

Spoilers to follow for Avengers: Infinity War.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home cast

Tom Holland is back as Peter Parker (obvs), but he's not the only returning cast-member from Homecoming

Michael Keaton is confirmed to return as Vulture, Zendaya is still MJ and Marisa Tomei is still Aunt May. Jacob Batalon is also back as Peter's best friend, Ned, with Tony Revolori returning as Parker's school rival, Flash. 

Interestingly though, Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders are also on the cast list – which means Nick Fury and Maria Hill both survive the Thanos snap at the end of Infinity War. We don't know yet how much of the snap is going to be reversed in Avengers 4, but since at least three major characters (including Parker) make it back from the dead by the time Far From Home starts, it suggests that at least some of the loose threads in Phase 3 will be tied up before Phase 4 begins to unravel them again. 

Worryingly though, rumour has is it that Robert Downey Junior will not be a part of Spider-Man: Far From Home - with another character taking his place as the Avengers link/mentor. Does this mean Iron Man doesn't survive Avengers 4?

Returning Spidey director John Watts has spoken about how he'd like to see Parker getting all shy around Black Widow, and getting all pally with Captain America – so Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans could be in the mix, although Watts could equally just have been throwing ideas around. 

New to the line-up is Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck - the jaded Hollywood special effects designer who becomes Spider-Man's new helmet-headed nemesis, Mysterio. Gyllenhaal's casting is not 100 per cent confirmed yet, but a hastily removed instagram post from actor Numan Acar (#jakegyllenhaal #mysterio) seems to confirm the many, many other rumours. 

Acar (Homeland, Prison Break, In The Fade) is another interesting one. Reportedly cast as a character called "Dimitri", the name suggests he might be playing Dimitri Smerdyakov, aka Chameleon, the super-spy master of disguise who makes a pretty worthy villain in the comics.

Also confirmed is SNL and Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian J.B. Smoove, although his role in the film is still being kept under wraps. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home release date

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5th, 2019 - which puts it fairly close to the release of Avengers 4, on May 3rd. Whatever happens at the end of Phase 3, at least we won't have too long to wait until Phase 4 comes along.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home filming 

Filming on Far From Home began on July 2 under the cryptic working title "Fall Of George", and the shoot is expected to continue until December. 

The film is mostly being shot in and around London, although Numan Acar's hushed-up Instagram post also hashtagged Berlin, Los Angeles and Istanbul.

Tom Holland shared the first behind-the-scenes video via his own Instagram account - joking about doing his own stunts, giving fans plenty of clues to talk about, and letting us all know that the film is partly set in Venice. Will he spoil something soon? Most definitely.

Spider-Man: Far From Home villains 

If Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio, Far From Home will have a pretty great bad guy. 

Quentin Beck is special effects maestro gone wrong, using his knowledge of movie magic and pyrotechnics to become a fishbowl-headed supervillain. He hasn't got any powers, but he still makes a pretty worthy foe in the comics – where he's been a staple since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's The Amazing Spider-Man #13 back in 1964. If Watts and Gyllenhaal lean into the movie making side of Beck's backstory, the character could also make for a fun meta twist on the MCU. If nothing else, all the practical FX experts who have been put out of a job by CG-heavy movies like Spider-Man will feel his pain.   

We know that Michael Keaton is back as Vulture, although with Mysterio in the mix, it's unlikely that he'll be leading from the front. The end credit sting in Homecoming showed Adrian Toomes/Vulture in prison, which is probably where he'll be in Far From Home, potentially steering things from behind bars.

We also caught of glimpse of Mac Gargan (Scorpion in some storylines, Venom in others) although there's no mention of him turning up in Far From Home just yet. And with the other Venom movie building up a different, parallel Spider-Man universe at the same time, the likelihood is that Mac will stay in the shadows for at least a bit longer. 

Last up on the list of potential villains is Numan Acar's rumoured Chameleon. Blessed with the power of making really, really good masks – Dmitri Smerdyakov is one of Spidey's oldest foes (dating right back to The Amazing Spider-Man #1 in 1963). Able to impersonate anyone he wants to, Chameleon regularly makes things confusing in the comics, often used as a way to fix plot holes by having one cornered character pull off a mask to reveal Dmitri looking smug.

The rumours about Chameleon have also stirred up others about the character's half-brother in the comics, Kraven the Hunter - another Russian supervillain who's been regular foil for Spider-Man in print since the early days.  

Finally, Holland's behind-the-scenes Instragram video has also started fans talking about the possibilty of seeing Hydro-Man. Could that big jet of water aimed at Holland's stunt double actually be more than just a wave?

Spider-Man: Far From Home plot

All we really know for sure at the moment is that Far From Home will follow on directly from Avengers 4. Producer Amy Pascal confirmed to Fandom that Far From Home won't leave much of a gap, stating that the film will start "a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story". Whether that means we'll pick up Peter's story as he shares a round of beers with the other Avengers over the broken body of Thanos, or if we'll see him still weeping over Tony Stark's grave, we don't know - and we probably won't know until next summer. 

What we do know is that Peter is fast becoming the most important character in the MCU - chosen to bridge Phases 3 and 4 and help us deal with whatever awful, awful things are inevitably going to happen to some of our favourite heroes. 

"So much happens in [Avengers 3 and 4], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?" Kevin Feige told io9.

"It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and [Avengers 4] going to affect him as he goes back to his junior year?"

How. The. Hell.

All we really know for sure at the moment is that Far From Home will follow on directly from Avengers 4.

Spider-Man: Far From Home: the geek essentials

Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch Phase 4 of the MCU, picking up wherever Avengers 4 leaves us, and forming the middle chapter of a new Spidey trilogy. So far we've seen Tom Holland's gawky teen Peter Parker adjusting to his new powers in three seperate Marvel movies, but what does the future hold for him now that his origin story is fully told? 

Far From Home is currently in production but details are already coming through thick and fast - with plenty of knock-on rumours about Avengers 4 and the rest of the MCU. Check back here for regular updates and any Spidey news as we get it.

Also confirmed is SNL and Curb Your Enthusiasm comedian J.B. Smoove, although his role in the film is still being kept under wraps. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home release date

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released on July 5th, 2019 - which puts it fairly close to the release of Avengers 4, on May 3rd. Whatever happens at the end of Phase 3, at least we won't have too long to wait until Phase 4 comes along.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home filming 

Filming on Far From Home began on July 2 under the cryptic working title "Fall Of George", and the shoot is expected to continue until December. 

The film is mostly being shot in and around London, although Numan Acar's hushed-up Instagram post also hashtagged Berlin, Los Angeles and Istanbul.

Tom Holland shared the first behind-the-scenes video via his own Instagram account - joking about doing his own stunts, giving fans plenty of clues to talk about, and letting us all know that the film is partly set in Venice. Will he spoil something soon? Most definitely.

Spider-Man: Far From Home villains 

If Gyllenhaal is playing Mysterio, Far From Home will have a pretty great bad guy. 

Quentin Beck is special effects maestro gone wrong, using his knowledge of movie magic and pyrotechnics to become a fishbowl-headed supervillain. He hasn't got any powers, but he still makes a pretty worthy foe in the comics – where he's been a staple since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's The Amazing Spider-Man #13 back in 1964. If Watts and Gyllenhaal lean into the movie making side of Beck's backstory, the character could also make for a fun meta twist on the MCU. If nothing else, all the practical FX experts who have been put out of a job by CG-heavy movies like Spider-Man will feel his pain.   

We know that Michael Keaton is back as Vulture, although with Mysterio in the mix, it's unlikely that he'll be leading from the front. The end credit sting in Homecoming showed Adrian Toomes/Vulture in prison, which is probably where he'll be in Far From Home, potentially steering things from behind bars.

We also caught of glimpse of Mac Gargan (Scorpion in some storylines, Venom in others) although there's no mention of him turning up in Far From Home just yet. And with the other Venom movie building up a different, parallel Spider-Man universe at the same time, the likelihood is that Mac will stay in the shadows for at least a bit longer. 

Last up on the list of potential villains is Numan Acar's rumoured Chameleon. Blessed with the power of making really, really good masks – Dmitri Smerdyakov is one of Spidey's oldest foes (dating right back to The Amazing Spider-Man #1 in 1963). Able to impersonate anyone he wants to, Chameleon regularly makes things confusing in the comics, often used as a way to fix plot holes by having one cornered character pull off a mask to reveal Dmitri looking smug.

The rumours about Chameleon have also stirred up others about the character's half-brother in the comics, Kraven the Hunter - another Russian supervillain who's been regular foil for Spider-Man in print since the early days.  

Finally, Holland's behind-the-scenes Instragram video has also started fans talking about the possibilty of seeing Hydro-Man. Could that big jet of water aimed at Holland's stunt double actually be more than just a wave?

Spider-Man: Far From Home plot

All we really know for sure at the moment is that Far From Home will follow on directly from Avengers 4. Producer Amy Pascal confirmed to Fandom that Far From Home won't leave much of a gap, stating that the film will start "a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story". Whether that means we'll pick up Peter's story as he shares a round of beers with the other Avengers over the broken body of Thanos, or if we'll see him still weeping over Tony Stark's grave, we don't know - and we probably won't know until next summer. 

What we do know is that Peter is fast becoming the most important character in the MCU - chosen to bridge Phases 3 and 4 and help us deal with whatever awful, awful things are inevitably going to happen to some of our favourite heroes. 

"So much happens in [Avengers 3 and 4], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?" Kevin Feige told io9.

"It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and [Avengers 4] going to affect him as he goes back to his junior year?"

How. The. Hell.

Spider-Man: Far From Home cast, release date, filming, villains and everything else we know about Spidey's next big swing

Spider-Man: Far From Home: the geek essentials

Spider-Man: Far From Home will launch Phase 4 of the MCU, picking up wherever Avengers 4 leaves us, and forming the middle chapter of a new Spidey trilogy. So far we've seen Tom Holland's gawky teen Peter Parker adjusting to his new powers in three seperate Marvel movies, but what does the future hold for him now that his origin story is fully told? 

Far From Home is currently in production but details are already coming through thick and fast - with plenty of knock-on rumours about Avengers 4 and the rest of the MCU. Check back here for regular updates and any Spidey news as we get it.

Spoilers to follow for Avengers: Infinity War.  

Spider-Man: Far From Home cast

Tom Holland is back as Peter Parker (obvs), but he's not the only returning cast-member from Homecoming

Michael Keaton is confirmed to return as Vulture, Zendaya is still MJ and Marisa Tomei is still Aunt May. Jacob Batalon is also back as Peter's best friend, Ned, with Tony Revolori returning as Parker's school rival, Flash. 

Interestingly though, Samuel L Jackson and Cobie Smulders are also on the cast list – which means Nick Fury and Maria Hill both survive the Thanos snap at the end of Infinity War. We don't know yet how much of the snap is going to be reversed in Avengers 4, but since at least three major characters (including Parker) make it back from the dead by the time Far From Home starts, it suggests that at least some of the loose threads in Phase 3 will be tied up before Phase 4 begins to unravel them again. 

Worryingly though, rumour has is it that Robert Downey Junior will not be a part of Spider-Man: Far From Home - with another character taking his place as the Avengers link/mentor. Does this mean Iron Man doesn't survive Avengers 4?

Returning Spidey director John Watts has spoken about how he'd like to see Parker getting all shy around Black Widow, and getting all pally with Captain America – so Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans could be in the mix, although Watts could equally just have been throwing ideas around. 

Spider-Man: Far From Home: the geek essentials

New to the line-up is Jake Gyllenhaal as Quentin Beck - the jaded Hollywood special effects designer who becomes Spider-Man's new helmet-headed nemesis, Mysterio. Gyllenhaal's casting is not 100 per cent confirmed yet, but a hastily removed instagram post from actor Numan Acar (#jakegyllenhaal #mysterio) seems to confirm the many, many other rumours.

Producer Amy Pascal confirmed to Fandom that Far From Home won't leave much of a gap, stating that the film will start "a few minutes after Avengers 4 wraps as a story". Whether that means we'll pick up Peter's story as he shares a round of beers with the other Avengers over the broken body of Thanos, or if we'll see him still weeping over Tony Stark's grave, we don't know - and we probably won't know until next summer. 

What we do know is that Peter is fast becoming the most important character in the MCU - chosen to bridge Phases 3 and 4 and help us deal with whatever awful, awful things are inevitably going to happen to some of our favourite heroes. 

"So much happens in [Avengers 3 and 4], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?" Kevin Feige told io9.

"It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and [Avengers 4] going to affect him as he goes back to his junior year?"

How. The. Hell.

Aug 17, 2018

Out on the 17th of August, here are our first impressions of Matt Groening's 'Simpsons meets Game Of Thrones' fantasy series...

In the canon of shows created by Matt Groening, Netflix’s Disenchantment is markedly closer to Futurama than The Simpsons. Developed by Groening and golden age Simpsons showrunner Josh Weinstein, this foray into a medieval fantasy world starts small on a big canvas, then starts to paint outwards.

Although it quickly develops into an ensemble sitcom, this approach starts with a more straightforward protagonist. As the first daughter of the financially embattled kingdom of Dreamland, Princess Bean (voiced by Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson) is a single young woman who longs for some individual freedom outside of her landed status.

But like Homer Simpson and Bender B. Rodriguez before her, she’s more interested in having a drink and a good time than singing to animals like other fantasy princesses. Much to the chagrin of her dad, King Zøg (John DiMaggio at his most John DiMag-nificent), Bean spends her days tooling around the kingdom and getting into misadventures with her elf friend Elfo (Nat Faxon) and her personal demon Luci (Eric Andre).

The first season of ten episodes lands on Netflix next week, but for the purposes of this review, I deliberately spaced out the seven episodes that have been shown to critics, rather than bingeing them all in one go. It’s an approach that might do the series some favours. But on a service whose shows are mostly designed to be devoured whole, there are still a few concessions to the usual Netflix format.

Unlike Groening’s previous shows, Disenchantment is lightly serialised, with more plot elements recurring across episodes than his usual network sitcom mode of restoring the status quo at the end of the half-hour. The extra-long first episode, A Princess, An Elf And A Demon Walk Into A Bar, ends on a cliffhanger that’s picked up in the following episode, but it appears as if the continuing story elements wax and wane throughout the run.

Funnily enough, the show is immediately better when it hews closer to the running time of a Netflix show. If this were going out on a traditional network, it could be even tighter, but the marked uptick in comedy from the first episode to the second is in part due to it being ten minutes shorter. Creative freedom is great and all, but like BoJack Horseman and Kimmy Schmidt before it, this shows why a quicker running time is generally a better thing for TV comedy.

The other issue that Disenchantment has to overcome early on is finding a unique selling point. From Monty Python to Shrek, plenty of other creators have ploughed the fantasy-comedy trough before now, so it takes a couple of episodes for the show to find its groove.

This is positioned as “Simpsons meets Game Of Thrones” and you can definitely see the influence of the latter show. In the first seven episodes alone, there are marriages, incestuous ruling couples, bloody coups, murderous plots, and more. Dreamland’s castle even has a handy Moon Door like the one at the Eyrie, which plays in much the same way as the trapdoor in Mr Burns’ office.

Groening and Weinstein also push past their network constraints with some more violent slapstick than we’re used to seeing from their shows, even in the bloodiest Itchy & Scratchy shorts. We get a taste of this in the very first episode when Elfo leaves his happy woodland realm for the first time and learns about war by crossing the battlefield of an epic clash between gnomes and ogres, and over the following episodes, there are a number of laugh-out-loud climactic sight gags to enjoy.

While the show sometimes leans a little hard on this, its most endearing quality is that it never gets overpowered by any of the weaker stuff, because it always has so much going on per episode. In the strongest, best-plotted episode of this run, Bean starts out attempting to find a job and contribute to society but winds up in the Dreamland equivalent of a slasher movie riff, which also crosses into the territory of Get Out, Indiana Jones, and a well-known Grimm fairy tale.

The writers’ pop culture savvy and experience in the TV industry pays dividends throughout the first seven episodes, while the characters are still being developed before us. The ensemble voice cast would be strong enough with Jacobson, Faxon, Andre, and DiMaggio, but there are recurring roles for Lucy Montgomery, Noel Fielding, Rich Fulcher, Matt Berry, and Futurama’s Billy West too.

The voice actors add a lot to this, in particular for the preening Prince Merkimer, whose lines are usually even funnier than they sound because of the Lord Flashheart-like pomp of Berry’s delivery. Adding to the great sound of the show, composer Mark Mothersbaugh provides a catchy theme that perfectly reconciles the show’s comedic anachronisms and recurs as an enjoyable motif throughout the action.

Many other reviews have compared the show to the first seasons of The Simpsons and Futurama, pointing out that they weren’t up to the same standard as their respective heydays. This may be true, but Disenchantment deserves to be enjoyed on its own merits, rather than as an extension of two great shows.

For better or worse, it’s certainly more polished than either of those shows were at their outset, but it’s doomed to suffer from being compared directly to either of them. It’s not as consistently funny all the time, but it hits the ground running and its characters and style are more than entertaining enough to get us interested in further adventures.

Disenchantment arrives on Netflix on Friday the 17th of August.

In the canon of shows created by Matt Groening, Netflix’s Disenchantment is markedly closer to Futurama than The Simpsons. Developed by Groening and golden age Simpsons showrunner Josh Weinstein, this foray into a medieval fantasy world starts small on a big canvas, then starts to paint outwards.

Although it quickly develops into an ensemble sitcom, this approach starts with a more straightforward protagonist. As the first daughter of the financially embattled kingdom of Dreamland, Princess Bean (voiced by Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson) is a single young woman who longs for some individual freedom outside of her landed status.

But like Homer Simpson and Bender B. Rodriguez before her, she’s more interested in having a drink and a good time than singing to animals like other fantasy princesses. Much to the chagrin of her dad, King Zøg (John DiMaggio at his most John DiMag-nificent), Bean spends her days tooling around the kingdom and getting into misadventures with her elf friend Elfo (Nat Faxon) and her personal demon Luci (Eric Andre).

The first season of ten episodes lands on Netflix next week, but for the purposes of this review, I deliberately spaced out the seven episodes that have been shown to critics, rather than bingeing them all in one go. It’s an approach that might do the series some favours. But on a service whose shows are mostly designed to be devoured whole, there are still a few concessions to the usual Netflix format.

Unlike Groening’s previous shows, Disenchantment is lightly serialised, with more plot elements recurring across episodes than his usual network sitcom mode of restoring the status quo at the end of the half-hour. The extra-long first episode, A Princess, An Elf And A Demon Walk Into A Bar, ends on a cliffhanger that’s picked up in the following episode, but it appears as if the continuing story elements wax and wane throughout the run.

Funnily enough, the show is immediately better when it hews closer to the running time of a Netflix show. If this were going out on a traditional network, it could be even tighter, but the marked uptick in comedy from the first episode to the second is in part due to it being ten minutes shorter. Creative freedom is great and all, but like BoJack Horseman and Kimmy Schmidt before it, this shows why a quicker running time is generally a better thing for TV comedy.

Disenchantment spoiler-free review

The other issue that Disenchantment has to overcome early on is finding a unique selling point. From Monty Python to Shrek, plenty of other creators have ploughed the fantasy-comedy trough before now, so it takes a couple of episodes for the show to find its groove.

This is positioned as “Simpsons meets Game Of Thrones” and you can definitely see the influence of the latter show. In the first seven episodes alone, there are marriages, incestuous ruling couples, bloody coups, murderous plots, and more. Dreamland’s castle even has a handy Moon Door like the one at the Eyrie, which plays in much the same way as the trapdoor in Mr Burns’ office.

Groening and Weinstein also push past their network constraints with some more violent slapstick than we’re used to seeing from their shows, even in the bloodiest Itchy & Scratchy shorts. We get a taste of this in the very first episode when Elfo leaves his happy woodland realm for the first time and learns about war by crossing the battlefield of an epic clash between gnomes and ogres, and over the following episodes, there are a number of laugh-out-loud climactic sight gags to enjoy.

While the show sometimes leans a little hard on this, its most endearing quality is that it never gets overpowered by any of the weaker stuff, because it always has so much going on per episode. In the strongest, best-plotted episode of this run, Bean starts out attempting to find a job and contribute to society but winds up in the Dreamland equivalent of a slasher movie riff, which also crosses into the territory of Get Out, Indiana Jones, and a well-known Grimm fairy tale.

The writers’ pop culture savvy and experience in the TV industry pays dividends throughout the first seven episodes, while the characters are still being developed before us. The ensemble voice cast would be strong enough with Jacobson, Faxon, Andre, and DiMaggio, but there are recurring roles for Lucy Montgomery, Noel Fielding, Rich Fulcher, Matt Berry, and Futurama’s Billy West too.

The voice actors add a lot to this, in particular for the preening Prince Merkimer, whose lines are usually even funnier than they sound because of the Lord Flashheart-like pomp of Berry’s delivery. Adding to the great sound of the show, composer Mark Mothersbaugh provides a catchy theme that perfectly reconciles the show’s comedic anachronisms and recurs as an enjoyable motif throughout the action.

Many other reviews have compared the show to the first seasons of The Simpsons and Futurama, pointing out that they weren’t up to the same standard as their respective heydays. This may be true, but Disenchantment deserves to be enjoyed on its own merits, rather than as an extension of two great shows.

For better or worse, it’s certainly more polished than either of those shows were at their outset, but it’s doomed to suffer from being compared directly to either of them. It’s not as consistently funny all the time, but it hits the ground running and its characters and style are more than entertaining enough to get us interested in further adventures.

Disenchantment arrives on Netflix on Friday the 17th of August.

Widows: new trailer for Steve McQueen's film

Viola Davis leads an all star cast in Widows, the forthcoming heist thriller from director Steve McQueen. Here's the new trailer...

We love a good heist thriller, and given it's the next film from acclaimed filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years A Slave), we're really looking forward to Widows.

It stars Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo as a group of women who aim to pull off the heist their spouses failed to pull off; also among the cast you'll find Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Daniel Kaluuya, Robert Duvall and Jacki Weaver. That's a pretty stunning line-up, we're sure you'll agree. And if the premise sounds familiar, that's because it's essentially an adaptation of a 1980s TV series of the same name, written by Lynda La Plante.

Here's the brand new trailer for the film...

This time around, Gillian Flynn (who wrote the sizzling Gone Girl) has penned the adapted screenplay, and by the looks of things, the hair on the lead characters is far less voluminous than it was about 35 years ago, while the action's been kicked up a notch.

Steve McQueen's previous movies were great to look at and full of sterling performances; we're excited, then, to see what he does with this kind of genre material.

Widows release date

Widows is out in UK cinemas on the 9th November.

Viola Davis leads an all star cast in Widows, the forthcoming heist thriller from director Steve McQueen. Here's the new trailer...

We love a good heist thriller, and given it's the next film from acclaimed filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years A Slave), we're really looking forward to Widows.

It stars Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo as a group of women who aim to pull off the heist their spouses failed to pull off; also among the cast you'll find Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Daniel Kaluuya, Robert Duvall and Jacki Weaver. That's a pretty stunning line-up, we're sure you'll agree. And if the premise sounds familiar, that's because it's essentially an adaptation of a 1980s TV series of the same name, written by Lynda La Plante.

Here's the brand new trailer for the film...

This time around, Gillian Flynn (who wrote the sizzling Gone Girl) has penned the adapted screenplay, and by the looks of things, the hair on the lead characters is far less voluminous than it was about 35 years ago, while the action's been kicked up a notch.

Steve McQueen's previous movies were great to look at and full of sterling performances; we're excited, then, to see what he does with this kind of genre material.

Widows release date

Widows is out in UK cinemas on the 9th November.

V-Wars: first image of Ian Somerhalder in new vampire series

Array ( [post_title] => V-Wars: first image of Ian Somerhalder in new vampire series [post_content] => Kayti Burt Kirsten Howard

The Doctor...is in.

Ian Somerhalder is a big part of Netflix's V-Wars. The actor previously starred as an immortal in eight seasons of The CW's The Vampire Diaries. This time, Somerhalder will be on the other side of the human-vampire struggle.

Netflix has ordered 10 hour-long episodes of V-Wars, an on-screen adaptation of Jonathan Maberry's 2012 book about the first Vampire War. The book is the first in a series that features prose stories about the supernatural struggle. V-Wars: Chronicles Of The Vampire Wars has four installments, and is distributed by IDW Publishing, who is also producing the series alongside High Park Entertainment.

Here's a first pic of Ian in the forthcoming series...

Here he is... @drlutherswannofficial aka Dr. Luther Swann. Would you trust this man? #vwars @vwarsnetflix @vwars @vwarsofficial

A post shared by iansomerhalder (@iansomerhalder) on

Well, hello!

According to Deadline, Somerhalder is playing Dr. Luther Swann, "who enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans." Awkward. Swann obviously isn't alone in his struggles. As more and more people become infected, the world splits into humanity versus vampire nation. While Swann tries to understand what is happening, Fayne becomes the leader of the vampires.

In addition to starring in the series, Somerhalder is attached to direct. The actor previously helmed three episodes of The Vampire Diaries. They were all great, so it will be interesting to see what Somerhalder can do behind the camera outside of the Vampire Diaries universe.

More news on V-Wars as we hear it.

Killing Eve season 2: Julian Barratt joins the cast

Array ( [post_title] => Killing Eve season 2: Julian Barratt joins the cast [post_content] => Joseph Baxter Kirsten Howard

Aug 16, 2018

The second season of Killing Eve will feature at least one half of The Mighty Boosh...

Killing Eve has impressed audiences everywhere with its dark, yet irreverent, rivalry between Sandra Oh’s unassuming MI5 pencil-pusher, Eve Polastri, and Jodie Comer’s psychopathic assassin, Villanelle. The big brass at BBC America were similarly impressed, with the cable channel preemptively renewing the series, making season 2 a reality even before the show's premiere.

Killing Eve season 2 will continue the story established in season 1, adapting the Villanelle novels of Luke Jennings, and touting the behind the scenes presence of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, although she'll be handing over writing duties to Emerald Fennel (Call The Midwife) in the sophomore run.

This week we've learned that the cast has had a few additions, including one Julian Barratt. The Mindhorn and Mighty Boosh actor will guest star in season 2 in an undisclosed role, but when we hear that Barratt has joined anything we have very high hopes for the content of his appearance!

The series has depicted a duel protagonist role between Eve and Villanelle. When the normally-shadowy assassin, Villanelle, created an international incident after killing a Russian politician, Eve was tasked by MI5 to track her down, dead or alive. The quickly-escalating rivalry proved that both women had particular strengths that the other lacked, while exposing some shocking personal parallels in their characters and a bizarre form of mutual respect between cop and killer.

Killing Eve season 2 air date

Killing Eve will continue its deadly cat-and-mouse game in 2019.

The second season of Killing Eve will feature at least one half of The Mighty Boosh...

Killing Eve season 2: Julian Barratt joins the cast

Killing Eve has impressed audiences everywhere with its dark, yet irreverent, rivalry between Sandra Oh’s unassuming MI5 pencil-pusher, Eve Polastri, and Jodie Comer’s psychopathic assassin, Villanelle. The big brass at BBC America were similarly impressed, with the cable channel preemptively renewing the series, making season 2 a reality even before the show's premiere.

Killing Eve season 2 will continue the story established in season 1, adapting the Villanelle novels of Luke Jennings, and touting the behind the scenes presence of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, although she'll be handing over writing duties to Emerald Fennel (Call The Midwife) in the sophomore run.

This week we've learned that the cast has had a few additions, including one Julian Barratt. The Mindhorn and Mighty Boosh actor will guest star in season 2 in an undisclosed role, but when we hear that Barratt has joined anything we have very high hopes for the content of his appearance!

The series has depicted a duel protagonist role between Eve and Villanelle. When the normally-shadowy assassin, Villanelle, created an international incident after killing a Russian politician, Eve was tasked by MI5 to track her down, dead or alive. The quickly-escalating rivalry proved that both women had particular strengths that the other lacked, while exposing some shocking personal parallels in their characters and a bizarre form of mutual respect between cop and killer.

Killing Eve will continue its deadly cat-and-mouse game in 2019.

Riverdale season 3 will have another musical episode

Array ( [post_title] => Riverdale season 3 will have another musical episode [post_content] => Chris Longo Kirsten Howard Chris Cummins

Aug 15, 2018

The prospect of another Riverdale musical episode really hits the right notes...

The CW left no mystery as to Riverdale's status for the 2018/2019 season. Archie and his pals will be back as Riverdale season 3 has been officially confirmed by the network, and filming got underway on 6th July. It's set to wrap on 19th April, 2019.

The CW made a rare move in announcing that 10 of its original shows had all been picked up for new seasons, including Riverdale, but the series has become one of the network’s flagship programs. It's a ratings hit with the younger demo and saw huge ratings increases from season 1 to season 2, in large part due to the show being available on streaming services like Netflix.

Based on characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale follows Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and his friends Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) as they navigate young adulthood amid the lies and secrecy of a seemingly picturesque town with a seedy underbelly.

The best episode of Riverdale's second season was "A Night to Remember," AKA the Carrie: The Musical one. The reason that this was so successful is because that the Archie characters are so adaptable, and could easily exist in Carrie White's world.

In short, teen angst is universal...whether you're dealing with masked killers or telekinetic powers.

So naturally, it only makes sense to do another musical episode, and that's just what the show's producers announced that they intended to do during Riverdale's San Diego Comic Con panel last month.

We don't know what musical they will do next season, but we do have one potential show that has been ruled out.

At San Diego Comic Con, Sarah Schechter told reporters. "I'd love to see them do Mamma Mia. I don't think that's going to be it, so that's not a spoiler. But anything where we can get them in some pantsuits and singing Abba I wouldn't mind." Neither would we.

While we understand the impulse to do another musical, Carrie: The Musical was such a natural fit for this show, obscure though it may be, that we can't imagine it being topped. Then again, Roerto Aguirre-Sacasa did write the book for the American Psycho musical, and man, would we love to see Casey Cott take on Patrick Bateman!

It should be noted that Aguirre-Sacasa also rewrote the book for the revamped Broadway version of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, but frankly our minds can't begin to comprehend how jaw-dropping it would be to see Archie and company bring that mess to Riverdale High. Sigh, the possibilities.

There's no more information available about the next Riverdale musical, but believe us, as soon as we learn more we'll report back.

Riverdale season 3 release date

Riverdale season 3 will begin airing stateside on The CW on 11th October. Netflix UK should start streaming new episodes on the 12th.

The prospect of another Riverdale musical episode really hits the right notes...

The CW left no mystery as to Riverdale's status for the 2018/2019 season. Archie and his pals will be back as Riverdale season 3 has been officially confirmed by the network, and filming got underway on 6th July. It's set to wrap on 19th April, 2019.

The CW made a rare move in announcing that 10 of its original shows had all been picked up for new seasons, including Riverdale, but the series has become one of the network’s flagship programs. It's a ratings hit with the younger demo and saw huge ratings increases from season 1 to season 2, in large part due to the show being available on streaming services like Netflix.

Based on characters from Archie Comics, Riverdale follows Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and his friends Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Betty (Lili Reinhart) and Veronica (Camila Mendes) as they navigate young adulthood amid the lies and secrecy of a seemingly picturesque town with a seedy underbelly.

The best episode of Riverdale's second season was "A Night to Remember," AKA the Carrie: The Musical one. The reason that this was so successful is because that the Archie characters are so adaptable, and could easily exist in Carrie White's world.

In short, teen angst is universal...whether you're dealing with masked killers or telekinetic powers.

So naturally, it only makes sense to do another musical episode, and that's just what the show's producers announced that they intended to do during Riverdale's San Diego Comic Con panel last month.

We don't know what musical they will do next season, but we do have one potential show that has been ruled out.

At San Diego Comic Con, Sarah Schechter told reporters. "I'd love to see them do Mamma Mia. I don't think that's going to be it, so that's not a spoiler. But anything where we can get them in some pantsuits and singing Abba I wouldn't mind." Neither would we.

While we understand the impulse to do another musical, Carrie: The Musical was such a natural fit for this show, obscure though it may be, that we can't imagine it being topped. Then again, Roerto Aguirre-Sacasa did write the book for the American Psycho musical, and man, would we love to see Casey Cott take on Patrick Bateman!

It should be noted that Aguirre-Sacasa also rewrote the book for the revamped Broadway version of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, but frankly our minds can't begin to comprehend how jaw-dropping it would be to see Archie and company bring that mess to Riverdale High. Sigh, the possibilities.

There's no more information available about the next Riverdale musical, but believe us, as soon as we learn more we'll report back.

Krypton explores Superman history in intriguing ways

Aug 17, 2018

David S. Goyer chats to our US chums about his storytelling approach in Krypton, starting in the UK this Sunday on E4 at 9pm...

David Goyer is no stranger to Superman’s doomed home planet. As the writer of 2013’s Man Of Steel, he gave audiences a more detailed look at Krypton than had ever before been shown onscreen. So much effort went into designing Kryptonian culture and history for that film, Goyer wanted to explore it further. He now has the chance with Syfy’s Krypton television series, which Goyer is writing and executive producing.

Krypton centres on Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El (played by Cameron Cuffe), a minor figure in DC Comics history who coincidentally popped up in a 1999 Starman story that Goyer also co-wrote. But the character first appeared in The World Of Krypton, a 1987 mini-series by John Byrne and Mike Mignola, which serves as one of the inspirations for Syfy’s new show. If you’ve seen the trailer or images from Krypton, you may have noted some visual similarities to Man Of Steel. Goyer says that while the show “isn’t an official prequel… I don’t think there’s anything we’re doing that contradicts what was set up in Man Of Steel.” He further promises that all eras of Krypton’s pop culture history are “on the menu,” from the comics to Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie.

Still, don’t be fooled by the fact that you know the planet’s tragic fate. Krypton takes place two hundred years before that fateful explosion, which means these are all new characters with plenty of life in them to explore. “Even in the comic books, no one has ever said what the fate of Superman’s grandfather was, nor is the fate of any of the characters that we're introducing in the series known,” Goyer says. “I think that's a real positive in terms of dramatic storytelling. It's not like we know character X will grow up to be hero Y.”

While those who majored in Kryptonian Studies might recognise the names of some of the key players, Krypton should work as a science fiction show independent of its distant superhero connections. “Of course we’re making this show for fans,” Goyer says, “but we're hoping it's something that will appeal to people even if they've never seen a Superman movie or picked up a comic [or] aren't even necessarily science fiction fans.”

Goyer compares this adaptation approach to Game Of Thrones. While George R.R. Martin’s books had a devoted group of fans who were already intimately familiar with its rich mythology, the TV show still has to stand on its own as a story. “We're introducing quite a few characters in the first season that DC readers will know about,” Goyer says, “but the mantra with everyone involved is ‘don’t assume the wider audience will know who these characters are.’”

It even sounds like Krypton will surprise fans with its ties to the wider DC Universe. “There are a lot of other characters from the Superman canon, some of which have been linked to Krypton before, some of which haven't, that are also included,” Goyer says. “There are also some other DC Universe characters that aren't specifically part of the Superman canon that will play a role.” Sadly, despite my best efforts, he wouldn’t confirm if this means we’ll see Thanagarians or members of the Green Lantern Corps.

“We're definitely doing some things that I think people won't expect,” Goyer promises. “And we're making some unexpected additions to this Superman world that I'm excited for audiences to see.”

Krypton starts on E4 in the UK on Sunday the 19th of August at 9pm.

David S. Goyer chats to our US chums about his storytelling approach in Krypton, starting in the UK this Sunday on E4 at 9pm...

Krypton explores Superman history in intriguing ways

David Goyer is no stranger to Superman’s doomed home planet. As the writer of 2013’s Man Of Steel, he gave audiences a more detailed look at Krypton than had ever before been shown onscreen. So much effort went into designing Kryptonian culture and history for that film, Goyer wanted to explore it further. He now has the chance with Syfy’s Krypton television series, which Goyer is writing and executive producing.

Krypton centres on Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El (played by Cameron Cuffe), a minor figure in DC Comics history who coincidentally popped up in a 1999 Starman story that Goyer also co-wrote. But the character first appeared in The World Of Krypton, a 1987 mini-series by John Byrne and Mike Mignola, which serves as one of the inspirations for Syfy’s new show. If you’ve seen the trailer or images from Krypton, you may have noted some visual similarities to Man Of Steel. Goyer says that while the show “isn’t an official prequel… I don’t think there’s anything we’re doing that contradicts what was set up in Man Of Steel.” He further promises that all eras of Krypton’s pop culture history are “on the menu,” from the comics to Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie.

Still, don’t be fooled by the fact that you know the planet’s tragic fate. Krypton takes place two hundred years before that fateful explosion, which means these are all new characters with plenty of life in them to explore. “Even in the comic books, no one has ever said what the fate of Superman’s grandfather was, nor is the fate of any of the characters that we're introducing in the series known,” Goyer says. “I think that's a real positive in terms of dramatic storytelling. It's not like we know character X will grow up to be hero Y.”

While those who majored in Kryptonian Studies might recognise the names of some of the key players, Krypton should work as a science fiction show independent of its distant superhero connections. “Of course we’re making this show for fans,” Goyer says, “but we're hoping it's something that will appeal to people even if they've never seen a Superman movie or picked up a comic [or] aren't even necessarily science fiction fans.”

Goyer compares this adaptation approach to Game Of Thrones. While George R.R. Martin’s books had a devoted group of fans who were already intimately familiar with its rich mythology, the TV show still has to stand on its own as a story. “We're introducing quite a few characters in the first season that DC readers will know about,” Goyer says, “but the mantra with everyone involved is ‘don’t assume the wider audience will know who these characters are.’”

It even sounds like Krypton will surprise fans with its ties to the wider DC Universe. “There are a lot of other characters from the Superman canon, some of which have been linked to Krypton before, some of which haven't, that are also included,” Goyer says. “There are also some other DC Universe characters that aren't specifically part of the Superman canon that will play a role.” Sadly, despite my best efforts, he wouldn’t confirm if this means we’ll see Thanagarians or members of the Green Lantern Corps.

“We're definitely doing some things that I think people won't expect,” Goyer promises. “And we're making some unexpected additions to this Superman world that I'm excited for audiences to see.”

Krypton starts on E4 in the UK on Sunday the 19th of August at 9pm.

Iron Fist season 2: release date, teaser trailer, new synopsis, villain revealed

Aug 16, 2018

Danny Rand is back in the first trailer for Iron Fist season 2...

Iron Fist season 2 is the next gift from Netflix's sack of Marvel goodies, and we've now got a first trailer to show you.

Without further ado, here it jolly well is...

And here's the official synopsis...

“Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny​, a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Dann​y​ has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. ​But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity ​and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.”

Spoilers ahead, as the show's SDCC panel revealed the first details of Alice Eve's character in season 2...

Not Squirrel Girl, sadly, although that would be absolutely IMMENSE news. She's just here to signpost the spoilers for you! No, for Iron Fist season 2, Danny Rand has gotten himself a new villain...or a friend...or a lover...or all three?

At Marvel's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, actress Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) confirmed that she will be portraying Marvel villain Typhoid Mary.

Cool! Mmmm, who is Typhoid Mary again?

Well, Typhoid Mary seems like she would be a response to DC's immensely popular Harley Quinn if it weren't for the fact that she was created first (back in 1988).

The character's name comes from early 20th century Irish-American cook and asymptomatic typhoid carrier "Typhoid" Mary Mallon. The comic Typhoid Mary, real name Mary Walker, has powerful telekinetic abilities, and is an accomplished martial artist. She is a femme fatale who has served as an assassin for organised crime syndicates, most notably that of the Kingpin. She also has a complicated relationship with Matt Murdock, with the two alternating between lovers and enemies.

She also looks like this...

Where the Harley Quinn comparisons come in, however, is that Typhoid Mary is severely mentally ill. She suffers from a dissociative personality disorder and has displayed three abnormal personalities: the quiet Mary, the lustful and violent Typhoid, and the sadistic Bloody Mary.

In the comics, Typhoid Mary has interacted with many of the characters represented in Marvel's Netflix universe: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Kingpin, and Luke Cage. Introducing the character in Iron Fist is an interesting choice as she's more commonly seen as a member of Daredevil's rogue's gallery. With that in mind, Typhoid Mary seems likely to stick around for multiple shows in this phase of Marvel Netflix show seasons. Alice Eve is also a relatively high profile actress, suggesting this could be a big, complicated role.

More as we have it.

Iron Fist season 2 release date

Iron Fist season 2 will drop on 7th September.

Iron Fist season 2 cast and crew

Iron Fist was renewed for season two during SDCC last year. Further to that, it was announced that a new showrunner would be taking over.

CBR reported that Scott Buck (who helmed season 1 of Iron Fist, as well as ABC's Inhumans) was out, and Raven Metzner was in. Metzner wrote the Elektra movie from 2005, and also penned episodes of Sleepy Hollow.

An official statement from Marvel's Jeph Loeb said that "Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing".

Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) also hopped aboard the second season of Marvel's Iron Fist late in 2017, and we now have some new pictures of the actress on set giving Danny what appears to be a much-needed helping hand.

Mild spoilers potentially ahead...

We truly don't know anything about Eve's character in Iron Fist - it's quite the mystery, still, at this point - but there was some speculation that she might be playing a villain by the name of Lady Gorgon a.k.a. Tonya Parker. The Hashtag Show had posted, prior to the announcement of Eve's casting, that the crew were looking for someone to play Gorgon, who is described as “a chameleon adapt at playing roles - she inhabits the part that best fits the mission.”

It feels like a bit more than a coincidence that Eve joined season 2 quite soon after, but we shall see...

Iron Fist season 2 costume

Speaking of Danny, Finn Jones recently told our US chums that his origin story from the first season of Iron Fist is incomplete, and that it took until the conclusion of The Defenders for him to fully embrace his superheroic destiny.

He also said that he hopes that Danny eventually gets a costume, including the "classic yellow mask," but he knows that these Marvel Netflix shows prefer to let things happen organically.

"The thing with all of these shows is not that we're shy to bring the costumes,” Jones said. “It's that we want them to feel authentic when it does happen. Danny's on this journey to understanding what his responsibility is. And throughout all of [Iron Fist] season 1, he was in no state of mind to put a suit on. That would've been ridiculous because he was not fully accomplished as the Iron Fist yet and he certainly didn’t have the right or the responsibility to be putting on a superhero costume. He needs to work his shit out. And certainly by the end of The Defenders, it will feel right.”

Danny Rand is back in the first trailer for Iron Fist season 2...

Iron Fist season 2 is the next gift from Netflix's sack of Marvel goodies, and we've now got a first trailer to show you.

Without further ado, here it jolly well is...

And here's the official synopsis...

“Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny​, a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Dann​y​ has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. ​But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity ​and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.”

Spoilers ahead, as the show's SDCC panel revealed the first details of Alice Eve's character in season 2...

Not Squirrel Girl, sadly, although that would be absolutely IMMENSE news. She's just here to signpost the spoilers for you! No, for Iron Fist season 2, Danny Rand has gotten himself a new villain...or a friend...or a lover...or all three?

At Marvel's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, actress Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) confirmed that she will be portraying Marvel villain Typhoid Mary.

Cool! Mmmm, who is Typhoid Mary again?

Well, Typhoid Mary seems like she would be a response to DC's immensely popular Harley Quinn if it weren't for the fact that she was created first (back in 1988).

The character's name comes from early 20th century Irish-American cook and asymptomatic typhoid carrier "Typhoid" Mary Mallon. The comic Typhoid Mary, real name Mary Walker, has powerful telekinetic abilities, and is an accomplished martial artist. She is a femme fatale who has served as an assassin for organised crime syndicates, most notably that of the Kingpin. She also has a complicated relationship with Matt Murdock, with the two alternating between lovers and enemies.

She also looks like this...

Where the Harley Quinn comparisons come in, however, is that Typhoid Mary is severely mentally ill. She suffers from a dissociative personality disorder and has displayed three abnormal personalities: the quiet Mary, the lustful and violent Typhoid, and the sadistic Bloody Mary.

In the comics, Typhoid Mary has interacted with many of the characters represented in Marvel's Netflix universe: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Kingpin, and Luke Cage. Introducing the character in Iron Fist is an interesting choice as she's more commonly seen as a member of Daredevil's rogue's gallery. With that in mind, Typhoid Mary seems likely to stick around for multiple shows in this phase of Marvel Netflix show seasons. Alice Eve is also a relatively high profile actress, suggesting this could be a big, complicated role.

More as we have it.

Iron Fist season 2 release date

Iron Fist season 2 will drop on 7th September.

Flip over to page 2 for more on the new cast and crew...

Iron Fist season 2 cast and crew

Iron Fist was renewed for season two during SDCC last year. Further to that, it was announced that a new showrunner would be taking over.

CBR reported that Scott Buck (who helmed season 1 of Iron Fist, as well as ABC's Inhumans) was out, and Raven Metzner was in. Metzner wrote the Elektra movie from 2005, and also penned episodes of Sleepy Hollow.

An official statement from Marvel's Jeph Loeb said that "Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing".

Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) also hopped aboard the second season of Marvel's Iron Fist late in 2017, and we now have some new pictures of the actress on set giving Danny what appears to be a much-needed helping hand.

Mild spoilers potentially ahead...

We truly don't know anything about Eve's character in Iron Fist - it's quite the mystery, still, at this point - but there was some speculation that she might be playing a villain by the name of Lady Gorgon a.k.a. Tonya Parker. The Hashtag Show had posted, prior to the announcement of Eve's casting, that the crew were looking for someone to play Gorgon, who is described as “a chameleon adapt at playing roles - she inhabits the part that best fits the mission.”

It feels like a bit more than a coincidence that Eve joined season 2 quite soon after, but we shall see...

Iron Fist season 2 costume

Speaking of Danny, Finn Jones recently told our US chums that his origin story from the first season of Iron Fist is incomplete, and that it took until the conclusion of The Defenders for him to fully embrace his superheroic destiny.

He also said that he hopes that Danny eventually gets a costume, including the "classic yellow mask," but he knows that these Marvel Netflix shows prefer to let things happen organically.

"The thing with all of these shows is not that we're shy to bring the costumes,” Jones said. “It's that we want them to feel authentic when it does happen. Danny's on this journey to understanding what his responsibility is. And throughout all of [Iron Fist] season 1, he was in no state of mind to put a suit on. That would've been ridiculous because he was not fully accomplished as the Iron Fist yet and he certainly didn’t have the right or the responsibility to be putting on a superhero costume. He needs to work his shit out. And certainly by the end of The Defenders, it will feel right.”

Danny Rand is back in the first trailer for Iron Fist season 2...

Iron Fist season 2: release date, teaser trailer, new synopsis, villain revealed

Iron Fist season 2 is the next gift from Netflix's sack of Marvel goodies, and we've now got a first trailer to show you.

Without further ado, here it jolly well is...

And here's the official synopsis...

“Season 2 furthers the transformation of Danny​, a character with a fish out of water coming of age story making his way in a harsh new world, battling to work out who he is. This season, Dann​y​ has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. ​But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity ​and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.”

Spoilers ahead, as the show's SDCC panel revealed the first details of Alice Eve's character in season 2...

Not Squirrel Girl, sadly, although that would be absolutely IMMENSE news. She's just here to signpost the spoilers for you! No, for Iron Fist season 2, Danny Rand has gotten himself a new villain...or a friend...or a lover...or all three?

At Marvel's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, actress Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) confirmed that she will be portraying Marvel villain Typhoid Mary.

Cool! Mmmm, who is Typhoid Mary again?

Well, Typhoid Mary seems like she would be a response to DC's immensely popular Harley Quinn if it weren't for the fact that she was created first (back in 1988).

The character's name comes from early 20th century Irish-American cook and asymptomatic typhoid carrier "Typhoid" Mary Mallon. The comic Typhoid Mary, real name Mary Walker, has powerful telekinetic abilities, and is an accomplished martial artist. She is a femme fatale who has served as an assassin for organised crime syndicates, most notably that of the Kingpin. She also has a complicated relationship with Matt Murdock, with the two alternating between lovers and enemies.

She also looks like this...

Where the Harley Quinn comparisons come in, however, is that Typhoid Mary is severely mentally ill. She suffers from a dissociative personality disorder and has displayed three abnormal personalities: the quiet Mary, the lustful and violent Typhoid, and the sadistic Bloody Mary.

In the comics, Typhoid Mary has interacted with many of the characters represented in Marvel's Netflix universe: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Kingpin, and Luke Cage. Introducing the character in Iron Fist is an interesting choice as she's more commonly seen as a member of Daredevil's rogue's gallery. With that in mind, Typhoid Mary seems likely to stick around for multiple shows in this phase of Marvel Netflix show seasons. Alice Eve is also a relatively high profile actress, suggesting this could be a big, complicated role.

More as we have it.

Iron Fist season 2 will drop on 7th September.

Iron Fist season 2 cast and crew

Iron Fist was renewed for season two during SDCC last year. Further to that, it was announced that a new showrunner would be taking over.

CBR reported that Scott Buck (who helmed season 1 of Iron Fist, as well as ABC's Inhumans) was out, and Raven Metzner was in. Metzner wrote the Elektra movie from 2005, and also penned episodes of Sleepy Hollow.

An official statement from Marvel's Jeph Loeb said that "Raven’s love of all things Iron Fist and his extensive knowledge of martial arts films made him the perfect choice to continue telling the adventures of Danny Rand and Colleen Wing".

Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) also hopped aboard the second season of Marvel's Iron Fist late in 2017, and we now have some new pictures of the actress on set giving Danny what appears to be a much-needed helping hand.

Mild spoilers potentially ahead...

We truly don't know anything about Eve's character in Iron Fist - it's quite the mystery, still, at this point - but there was some speculation that she might be playing a villain by the name of Lady Gorgon a.k.a. Tonya Parker. The Hashtag Show had posted, prior to the announcement of Eve's casting, that the crew were looking for someone to play Gorgon, who is described as “a chameleon adapt at playing roles - she inhabits the part that best fits the mission.”

It feels like a bit more than a coincidence that Eve joined season 2 quite soon after, but we shall see...

Iron Fist season 2 costume

Speaking of Danny, Finn Jones recently told our US chums that his origin story from the first season of Iron Fist is incomplete, and that it took until the conclusion of The Defenders for him to fully embrace his superheroic destiny.

He also said that he hopes that Danny eventually gets a costume, including the "classic yellow mask," but he knows that these Marvel Netflix shows prefer to let things happen organically.

"The thing with all of these shows is not that we're shy to bring the costumes,” Jones said. “It's that we want them to feel authentic when it does happen. Danny's on this journey to understanding what his responsibility is. And throughout all of [Iron Fist] season 1, he was in no state of mind to put a suit on. That would've been ridiculous because he was not fully accomplished as the Iron Fist yet and he certainly didn’t have the right or the responsibility to be putting on a superhero costume. He needs to work his shit out. And certainly by the end of The Defenders, it will feel right.”

Did Darryl survive Thanos? A new video confirms Thor's roommate's fate (spoilers)...

Avengers: Infinity War landed in cinemas pretty much everywhere around the world in April to cries of "just take our money!" - and it did. It took a lot of our money and smashed all kinds of records across the board, leaving us in pieces in its wake.

Now we've got the DVD/Blu-ray release to look forward to (September for us UK punters) and in 2019, Captain Marvel will appear to save the world - we hope - but there's been a bit of lighter, post-snap Infinity War news to comfort us in the meantime.

Spoilers ahead, though no doubt you've seen the movie by now...

We're pleased to note that Thor's roommate Darryl survived Thanos and his bejewelled golden glove of horrors. Truth be told, we were so fixated on whether Korg made it that we hadn't given a moment's thought to poor Darryl, but Thor's long-exploited Earth pal has thankfully popped back online in a new video to confirm his current status as Not Dust anyway...

The video seems to have been released to coincide with Chris Hemsworth's actual birthday last Saturday, and it's not the only hilarious (and weirdly touching?) tribute to our God of Thunder to be doing the rounds. Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, also congratulated the actor on making it through another muscle-flexing year in our hearts...

Brolin later deleted this video, but lucky for us, the internet is forever.

Avengers: Infinity War DVD commentary

The US have started poring over the commentary and bonus featurs on the Infinity War home release, and the Russo brothers have quite a few interesting things to add to the discourse in general on their directors' commentary, but they took the time to specifically address the issues that plagued Bruce Banner after he smashed back down to Earth in the opening section of the film. It's fair to say most of us had presumed that Hulk refused to make an appearance to take on Thanos because he'd had his ass kicked by the huge purple madman earlier on, but it turns out that this isn't the case.

"This was an interesting journey we went on with Banner, trying to decide how we move him forward in the Marvel Universe," mused Joe Russo on the commentary (via Screen Rant). "What makes him unique as a character is that there is a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hate each other. And both want control of the host body. So we thought an interesting direction to take him in is what if Banner, who typically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interested in solving those problems for Banner? So that the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. That's what's going on here. People have speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to face Thanos again. But I think ultimately what it is, is that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."

Hmm! More on this as we get it.

Avengers: Infinity War spoilers

The spoilers are coming...

There was no aftercare in the weeks following Infinity War. No one in charge jumped up to reassure us that everything would be okay. There was no helpline in place to call after we witnessed Thanos get his way and Bucky, Groot, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and so many others became dust in the wind.

One of the biggest shocks among the dead was King T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), especially after his standalone movie had done so well at the box office. We weren't the only ones reeling from that particular departure, it turns out, as Marvel exec and Black Panther producer Nate Moore was also pretty upset, going so far as to urge directors the Russo brothers to change their minds about the move all the way back in 2015, before Ryan Coogler had even finished making his pre-Black Panther boxing movie, Creed.

“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore told HuffPo. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in [Infinity War], and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”

Eventually, Moore came around to the Russos' plan, but he didn't go into the specific details of how they managed to convince him it was the right decision.

“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” he said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well Black Panther was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”

Avengers: Infinity War set pictures

Early filming had already taken place on Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, but then Marvel’s juggernaut arrived in fair Scotland and eager fans in Edinburgh were desperately trying to get a little preview of what the Russo brothers have planned for their next superhero team-up extravaganza.

Waverley station had already seen a gigantic green screen installed for forthcoming action scenes, and the BBC reported that fake shop fronts have appeared, with posters saying "This is Scotland" and "We will deep fry your kebab" dotted around to make sure the audience know where they're at.

Actor Paul Bettany, who plays the mysterious Vision in the MCU, was also spotted out and about in Edinburgh.

Over on Twitter, Andrew Liefield took this behind the scenes video of the Avengers: Infinity War shoot taking place in the capital:

And resident Julie Gifford snapped some fake cobbles being installed over the real ones in Cockburn Street:

The movie's shoot was the biggest to have ever taken place in Scotland, and local residents were told to "expect explosions."

Here's the first behind the scenes footage from the movie that we were shown previously...

Avengers: Infinity War cast

Infinity War has an exhaustive list of characters appearing, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Chris Evans as Captain America, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Benedict Wong as Wong, Dave Bautista as Drax, Paul Bettany as Vision, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. 

The Avengers

.

Whilst everyone and their mum is in the film - Hawkeye, put your hand down - could there have been even more characters battling Thanos than there already are? Only always, yes.

An appearance by Netflix's Defenders, or anyone from the cast of ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., was ruled out early on, as reams of red tape would've been involved in the coup, but that doesn't mean that directors the Russo brothers didn't talk it over before they settled on who was in and who was out of the massive event flick. Eventually, though, they ruled the idea out.

“We’ve all considered,” Joe Russo told Premiere, via Flickering Myth. “But the trick is that we already have at least sixty characters with whom we must tell a story! And it’s hard enough to communicate with Taika Waititi, Ryan Coogler, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed and James Gunn at the same time, not to add all the showrunners and TV crews to this. The latter is also led by totally different people. So it’s practically impossible. Our job is to focus on the Marvel film world and offer a satisfying climax.”

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.

That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.

Did Darryl survive Thanos? A new video confirms Thor's roommate's fate (spoilers)...

Avengers: Infinity War landed in cinemas pretty much everywhere around the world in April to cries of "just take our money!" - and it did. It took a lot of our money and smashed all kinds of records across the board, leaving us in pieces in its wake.

Now we've got the DVD/Blu-ray release to look forward to (September for us UK punters) and in 2019, Captain Marvel will appear to save the world - we hope - but there's been a bit of lighter, post-snap Infinity War news to comfort us in the meantime.

Spoilers ahead, though no doubt you've seen the movie by now...

We're pleased to note that Thor's roommate Darryl survived Thanos and his bejewelled golden glove of horrors. Truth be told, we were so fixated on whether Korg made it that we hadn't given a moment's thought to poor Darryl, but Thor's long-exploited Earth pal has thankfully popped back online in a new video to confirm his current status as Not Dust anyway...

The video seems to have been released to coincide with Chris Hemsworth's actual birthday last Saturday, and it's not the only hilarious (and weirdly touching?) tribute to our God of Thunder to be doing the rounds. Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, also congratulated the actor on making it through another muscle-flexing year in our hearts...

Brolin later deleted this video, but lucky for us, the internet is forever.

Avengers: Infinity War DVD commentary

The US have started poring over the commentary and bonus featurs on the Infinity War home release, and the Russo brothers have quite a few interesting things to add to the discourse in general on their directors' commentary, but they took the time to specifically address the issues that plagued Bruce Banner after he smashed back down to Earth in the opening section of the film. It's fair to say most of us had presumed that Hulk refused to make an appearance to take on Thanos because he'd had his ass kicked by the huge purple madman earlier on, but it turns out that this isn't the case.

"This was an interesting journey we went on with Banner, trying to decide how we move him forward in the Marvel Universe," mused Joe Russo on the commentary (via Screen Rant). "What makes him unique as a character is that there is a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hate each other. And both want control of the host body. So we thought an interesting direction to take him in is what if Banner, who typically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interested in solving those problems for Banner? So that the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. That's what's going on here. People have speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to face Thanos again. But I think ultimately what it is, is that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."

Hmm! More on this as we get it.

Avengers: Infinity War spoilers

The spoilers are coming...

There was no aftercare in the weeks following Infinity War. No one in charge jumped up to reassure us that everything would be okay. There was no helpline in place to call after we witnessed Thanos get his way and Bucky, Groot, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and so many others became dust in the wind.

One of the biggest shocks among the dead was King T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), especially after his standalone movie had done so well at the box office. We weren't the only ones reeling from that particular departure, it turns out, as Marvel exec and Black Panther producer Nate Moore was also pretty upset, going so far as to urge directors the Russo brothers to change their minds about the move all the way back in 2015, before Ryan Coogler had even finished making his pre-Black Panther boxing movie, Creed.

“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore told HuffPo. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in [Infinity War], and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”

Eventually, Moore came around to the Russos' plan, but he didn't go into the specific details of how they managed to convince him it was the right decision.

“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” he said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well Black Panther was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”

Avengers: Infinity War set pictures

Early filming had already taken place on Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, but then Marvel’s juggernaut arrived in fair Scotland and eager fans in Edinburgh were desperately trying to get a little preview of what the Russo brothers have planned for their next superhero team-up extravaganza.

Waverley station had already seen a gigantic green screen installed for forthcoming action scenes, and the BBC reported that fake shop fronts have appeared, with posters saying "This is Scotland" and "We will deep fry your kebab" dotted around to make sure the audience know where they're at.

Actor Paul Bettany, who plays the mysterious Vision in the MCU, was also spotted out and about in Edinburgh.

Over on Twitter, Andrew Liefield took this behind the scenes video of the Avengers: Infinity War shoot taking place in the capital:

And resident Julie Gifford snapped some fake cobbles being installed over the real ones in Cockburn Street:

The movie's shoot was the biggest to have ever taken place in Scotland, and local residents were told to "expect explosions."

Here's the first behind the scenes footage from the movie that we were shown previously...

Avengers: Infinity War cast

Infinity War has an exhaustive list of characters appearing, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Chris Evans as Captain America, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Benedict Wong as Wong, Dave Bautista as Drax, Paul Bettany as Vision, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. 

The Avengers

.

Whilst everyone and their mum is in the film - Hawkeye, put your hand down - could there have been even more characters battling Thanos than there already are? Only always, yes.

An appearance by Netflix's Defenders, or anyone from the cast of ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., was ruled out early on, as reams of red tape would've been involved in the coup, but that doesn't mean that directors the Russo brothers didn't talk it over before they settled on who was in and who was out of the massive event flick. Eventually, though, they ruled the idea out.

“We’ve all considered,” Joe Russo told Premiere, via Flickering Myth. “But the trick is that we already have at least sixty characters with whom we must tell a story! And it’s hard enough to communicate with Taika Waititi, Ryan Coogler, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed and James Gunn at the same time, not to add all the showrunners and TV crews to this. The latter is also led by totally different people. So it’s practically impossible. Our job is to focus on the Marvel film world and offer a satisfying climax.”

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

Did Darryl survive Thanos? A new video confirms Thor's roommate's fate (spoilers)...

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

Avengers: Infinity War landed in cinemas pretty much everywhere around the world in April to cries of "just take our money!" - and it did. It took a lot of our money and smashed all kinds of records across the board, leaving us in pieces in its wake.

Now we've got the DVD/Blu-ray release to look forward to (September for us UK punters) and in 2019, Captain Marvel will appear to save the world - we hope - but there's been a bit of lighter, post-snap Infinity War news to comfort us in the meantime.

Spoilers ahead, though no doubt you've seen the movie by now...

We're pleased to note that Thor's roommate Darryl survived Thanos and his bejewelled golden glove of horrors. Truth be told, we were so fixated on whether Korg made it that we hadn't given a moment's thought to poor Darryl, but Thor's long-exploited Earth pal has thankfully popped back online in a new video to confirm his current status as Not Dust anyway...

The video seems to have been released to coincide with Chris Hemsworth's actual birthday last Saturday, and it's not the only hilarious (and weirdly touching?) tribute to our God of Thunder to be doing the rounds. Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, also congratulated the actor on making it through another muscle-flexing year in our hearts...

Brolin later deleted this video, but lucky for us, the internet is forever.

Avengers: Infinity War DVD commentary

The US have started poring over the commentary and bonus featurs on the Infinity War home release, and the Russo brothers have quite a few interesting things to add to the discourse in general on their directors' commentary, but they took the time to specifically address the issues that plagued Bruce Banner after he smashed back down to Earth in the opening section of the film. It's fair to say most of us had presumed that Hulk refused to make an appearance to take on Thanos because he'd had his ass kicked by the huge purple madman earlier on, but it turns out that this isn't the case.

"This was an interesting journey we went on with Banner, trying to decide how we move him forward in the Marvel Universe," mused Joe Russo on the commentary (via Screen Rant). "What makes him unique as a character is that there is a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hate each other. And both want control of the host body. So we thought an interesting direction to take him in is what if Banner, who typically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interested in solving those problems for Banner? So that the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. That's what's going on here. People have speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to face Thanos again. But I think ultimately what it is, is that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."

Hmm! More on this as we get it.

Avengers: Infinity War spoilers

The spoilers are coming...

There was no aftercare in the weeks following Infinity War. No one in charge jumped up to reassure us that everything would be okay. There was no helpline in place to call after we witnessed Thanos get his way and Bucky, Groot, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and so many others became dust in the wind.

One of the biggest shocks among the dead was King T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), especially after his standalone movie had done so well at the box office. We weren't the only ones reeling from that particular departure, it turns out, as Marvel exec and Black Panther producer Nate Moore was also pretty upset, going so far as to urge directors the Russo brothers to change their minds about the move all the way back in 2015, before Ryan Coogler had even finished making his pre-Black Panther boxing movie, Creed.

“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore told HuffPo. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in [Infinity War], and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”

Eventually, Moore came around to the Russos' plan, but he didn't go into the specific details of how they managed to convince him it was the right decision.

“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” he said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well Black Panther was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”

Avengers: Infinity War set pictures

Early filming had already taken place on Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, but then Marvel’s juggernaut arrived in fair Scotland and eager fans in Edinburgh were desperately trying to get a little preview of what the Russo brothers have planned for their next superhero team-up extravaganza.

Waverley station had already seen a gigantic green screen installed for forthcoming action scenes, and the BBC reported that fake shop fronts have appeared, with posters saying "This is Scotland" and "We will deep fry your kebab" dotted around to make sure the audience know where they're at.

Actor Paul Bettany, who plays the mysterious Vision in the MCU, was also spotted out and about in Edinburgh.

Over on Twitter, Andrew Liefield took this behind the scenes video of the Avengers: Infinity War shoot taking place in the capital:

And resident Julie Gifford snapped some fake cobbles being installed over the real ones in Cockburn Street:

The movie's shoot was the biggest to have ever taken place in Scotland, and local residents were told to "expect explosions."

Here's the first behind the scenes footage from the movie that we were shown previously...

Avengers: Infinity War cast

Infinity War has an exhaustive list of characters appearing, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Chris Evans as Captain America, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Benedict Wong as Wong, Dave Bautista as Drax, Paul Bettany as Vision, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. 

The Avengers

.

Whilst everyone and their mum is in the film - Hawkeye, put your hand down - could there have been even more characters battling Thanos than there already are? Only always, yes.

An appearance by Netflix's Defenders, or anyone from the cast of ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., was ruled out early on, as reams of red tape would've been involved in the coup, but that doesn't mean that directors the Russo brothers didn't talk it over before they settled on who was in and who was out of the massive event flick. Eventually, though, they ruled the idea out.

“We’ve all considered,” Joe Russo told Premiere, via Flickering Myth. “But the trick is that we already have at least sixty characters with whom we must tell a story! And it’s hard enough to communicate with Taika Waititi, Ryan Coogler, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed and James Gunn at the same time, not to add all the showrunners and TV crews to this. The latter is also led by totally different people. So it’s practically impossible. Our job is to focus on the Marvel film world and offer a satisfying climax.”

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.

There was no aftercare in the weeks following Infinity War. No one in charge jumped up to reassure us that everything would be okay. There was no helpline in place to call after we witnessed Thanos get his way and Bucky, Groot, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and so many others became dust in the wind.

One of the biggest shocks among the dead was King T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), especially after his standalone movie had done so well at the box office. We weren't the only ones reeling from that particular departure, it turns out, as Marvel exec and Black Panther producer Nate Moore was also pretty upset, going so far as to urge directors the Russo brothers to change their minds about the move all the way back in 2015, before Ryan Coogler had even finished making his pre-Black Panther boxing movie, Creed.

“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore told HuffPo. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in [Infinity War], and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”

Eventually, Moore came around to the Russos' plan, but he didn't go into the specific details of how they managed to convince him it was the right decision.

“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” he said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well Black Panther was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”

Early filming had already taken place on Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, but then Marvel’s juggernaut arrived in fair Scotland and eager fans in Edinburgh were desperately trying to get a little preview of what the Russo brothers have planned for their next superhero team-up extravaganza.

Waverley station had already seen a gigantic green screen installed for forthcoming action scenes, and the BBC reported that fake shop fronts have appeared, with posters saying "This is Scotland" and "We will deep fry your kebab" dotted around to make sure the audience know where they're at.

Actor Paul Bettany, who plays the mysterious Vision in the MCU, was also spotted out and about in Edinburgh.

Over on Twitter, Andrew Liefield took this behind the scenes video of the Avengers: Infinity War shoot taking place in the capital:

And resident Julie Gifford snapped some fake cobbles being installed over the real ones in Cockburn Street:

The movie's shoot was the biggest to have ever taken place in Scotland, and local residents were told to "expect explosions."

Here's the first behind the scenes footage from the movie that we were shown previously...

Avengers: Infinity War cast

Infinity War has an exhaustive list of characters appearing, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Chris Evans as Captain America, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Benedict Wong as Wong, Dave Bautista as Drax, Paul Bettany as Vision, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

.

Whilst everyone and their mum is in the film - Hawkeye, put your hand down - could there have been even more characters battling Thanos than there already are? Only always, yes.

An appearance by Netflix's Defenders, or anyone from the cast of ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., was ruled out early on, as reams of red tape would've been involved in the coup, but that doesn't mean that directors the Russo brothers didn't talk it over before they settled on who was in and who was out of the massive event flick. Eventually, though, they ruled the idea out.

“We’ve all considered,” Joe Russo told Premiere, via Flickering Myth. “But the trick is that we already have at least sixty characters with whom we must tell a story! And it’s hard enough to communicate with Taika Waititi, Ryan Coogler, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed and James Gunn at the same time, not to add all the showrunners and TV crews to this. The latter is also led by totally different people. So it’s practically impossible. Our job is to focus on the Marvel film world and offer a satisfying climax.”

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.

Did Darryl survive Thanos? A new video confirms Thor's roommate's fate (spoilers)...

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

Avengers: Infinity War landed in cinemas pretty much everywhere around the world in April to cries of "just take our money!" - and it did. It took a lot of our money and smashed all kinds of records across the board, leaving us in pieces in its wake.

Now we've got the DVD/Blu-ray release to look forward to (September for us UK punters) and in 2019, Captain Marvel will appear to save the world - we hope - but there's been a bit of lighter, post-snap Infinity War news to comfort us in the meantime.

Spoilers ahead, though no doubt you've seen the movie by now...

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

We're pleased to note that Thor's roommate Darryl survived Thanos and his bejewelled golden glove of horrors. Truth be told, we were so fixated on whether Korg made it that we hadn't given a moment's thought to poor Darryl, but Thor's long-exploited Earth pal has thankfully popped back online in a new video to confirm his current status as Not Dust anyway...

The video seems to have been released to coincide with Chris Hemsworth's actual birthday last Saturday, and it's not the only hilarious (and weirdly touching?) tribute to our God of Thunder to be doing the rounds. Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, also congratulated the actor on making it through another muscle-flexing year in our hearts...

Brolin later deleted this video, but lucky for us, the internet is forever.

Avengers: Infinity War DVD commentary

The US have started poring over the commentary and bonus featurs on the Infinity War home release, and the Russo brothers have quite a few interesting things to add to the discourse in general on their directors' commentary, but they took the time to specifically address the issues that plagued Bruce Banner after he smashed back down to Earth in the opening section of the film. It's fair to say most of us had presumed that Hulk refused to make an appearance to take on Thanos because he'd had his ass kicked by the huge purple madman earlier on, but it turns out that this isn't the case.

"This was an interesting journey we went on with Banner, trying to decide how we move him forward in the Marvel Universe," mused Joe Russo on the commentary (via Screen Rant). "What makes him unique as a character is that there is a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hate each other. And both want control of the host body. So we thought an interesting direction to take him in is what if Banner, who typically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interested in solving those problems for Banner? So that the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. That's what's going on here. People have speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to face Thanos again. But I think ultimately what it is, is that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."

Hmm! More on this as we get it.

Did Darryl survive Thanos? A new video confirms Thor's roommate's fate (spoilers)...

Avengers: Infinity War landed in cinemas pretty much everywhere around the world in April to cries of "just take our money!" - and it did. It took a lot of our money and smashed all kinds of records across the board, leaving us in pieces in its wake.

Now we've got the DVD/Blu-ray release to look forward to (September for us UK punters) and in 2019, Captain Marvel will appear to save the world - we hope - but there's been a bit of lighter, post-snap Infinity War news to comfort us in the meantime.

Spoilers ahead, though no doubt you've seen the movie by now...

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

We're pleased to note that Thor's roommate Darryl survived Thanos and his bejewelled golden glove of horrors. Truth be told, we were so fixated on whether Korg made it that we hadn't given a moment's thought to poor Darryl, but Thor's long-exploited Earth pal has thankfully popped back online in a new video to confirm his current status as Not Dust anyway...

The video seems to have been released to coincide with Chris Hemsworth's actual birthday last Saturday, and it's not the only hilarious (and weirdly touching?) tribute to our God of Thunder to be doing the rounds. Thanos himself, Josh Brolin, also congratulated the actor on making it through another muscle-flexing year in our hearts...

Brolin later deleted this video, but lucky for us, the internet is forever.

Avengers: Infinity War DVD commentary

The US have started poring over the commentary and bonus featurs on the Infinity War home release, and the Russo brothers have quite a few interesting things to add to the discourse in general on their directors' commentary, but they took the time to specifically address the issues that plagued Bruce Banner after he smashed back down to Earth in the opening section of the film. It's fair to say most of us had presumed that Hulk refused to make an appearance to take on Thanos because he'd had his ass kicked by the huge purple madman earlier on, but it turns out that this isn't the case.

"This was an interesting journey we went on with Banner, trying to decide how we move him forward in the Marvel Universe," mused Joe Russo on the commentary (via Screen Rant). "What makes him unique as a character is that there is a host body that is being fought over by two distinct personalities who hate each other. And both want control of the host body. So we thought an interesting direction to take him in is what if Banner, who typically uses the Hulk to solve crisis situations, what if the Hulk were no longer interested in solving those problems for Banner? So that the relationship is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. That's what's going on here. People have speculated whether there was some fear on the Hulk's part about having to face Thanos again. But I think ultimately what it is, is that he's tired of playing hero to Bruce Banner."

Hmm! More on this as we get it.

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

There was no aftercare in the weeks following Infinity War. No one in charge jumped up to reassure us that everything would be okay. There was no helpline in place to call after we witnessed Thanos get his way and Bucky, Groot, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and so many others became dust in the wind.

One of the biggest shocks among the dead was King T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), especially after his standalone movie had done so well at the box office. We weren't the only ones reeling from that particular departure, it turns out, as Marvel exec and Black Panther producer Nate Moore was also pretty upset, going so far as to urge directors the Russo brothers to change their minds about the move all the way back in 2015, before Ryan Coogler had even finished making his pre-Black Panther boxing movie, Creed.

“I knew pretty well what they were talking about and personally urged them to reconsider,” Moore told HuffPo. “But the storytelling made sense, so I love that we got to see a little bit more of Wakanda in [Infinity War], and I hope to see how they’re going to resolve that.”

Eventually, Moore came around to the Russos' plan, but he didn't go into the specific details of how they managed to convince him it was the right decision.

“Touching on all the different ideas you can have, you talk about the pros and cons of each, and they had some really compelling arguments as to why what happened happened,” he said. “I think ultimately it made for a really interesting, almost more complicated ending to that film because of how well Black Panther was embraced by audiences. Again, personally painful, but I understand the reasoning.”

Avengers: Infinity War set pictures

Early filming had already taken place on Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, but then Marvel’s juggernaut arrived in fair Scotland and eager fans in Edinburgh were desperately trying to get a little preview of what the Russo brothers have planned for their next superhero team-up extravaganza.

Waverley station had already seen a gigantic green screen installed for forthcoming action scenes, and the BBC reported that fake shop fronts have appeared, with posters saying "This is Scotland" and "We will deep fry your kebab" dotted around to make sure the audience know where they're at.

Actor Paul Bettany, who plays the mysterious Vision in the MCU, was also spotted out and about in Edinburgh.

Over on Twitter, Andrew Liefield took this behind the scenes video of the Avengers: Infinity War shoot taking place in the capital:

And resident Julie Gifford snapped some fake cobbles being installed over the real ones in Cockburn Street:

The movie's shoot was the biggest to have ever taken place in Scotland, and local residents were told to "expect explosions."

Here's the first behind the scenes footage from the movie that we were shown previously...

Avengers: Infinity War cast

Infinity War has an exhaustive list of characters appearing, including Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Chris Evans as Captain America, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Benedict Wong as Wong, Dave Bautista as Drax, Paul Bettany as Vision, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and of course Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

.

Whilst everyone and their mum is in the film - Hawkeye, put your hand down - could there have been even more characters battling Thanos than there already are? Only always, yes.

An appearance by Netflix's Defenders, or anyone from the cast of ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., was ruled out early on, as reams of red tape would've been involved in the coup, but that doesn't mean that directors the Russo brothers didn't talk it over before they settled on who was in and who was out of the massive event flick. Eventually, though, they ruled the idea out.

“We’ve all considered,” Joe Russo told Premiere, via Flickering Myth. “But the trick is that we already have at least sixty characters with whom we must tell a story! And it’s hard enough to communicate with Taika Waititi, Ryan Coogler, Scott Derrickson, Peyton Reed and James Gunn at the same time, not to add all the showrunners and TV crews to this. The latter is also led by totally different people. So it’s practically impossible. Our job is to focus on the Marvel film world and offer a satisfying climax.”

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

Avengers: Infinity War - Thor's roommate reveals his post-snap state

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.

Do you reckon Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Matt Murdock or Frank Castle stand a chance of making it into the MCU in the future? It doesn't look likely, but we wouldn't put anything past these peeps - Yes, Peter. You can put your hand down now, too.

Avengers: Infinity War crew

The Russo brothers are back in the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. The two previously helmed Marvel's second and third Captain America films, The Winter Soldier and Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are also returning for both new Avengers films, so everything should have a nicely even tone.

The pair confirmed that they were writing the movies in tandem. “On any given day, you’re only working on one but that doesn’t mean that next week, you aren’t working on the other one. And certainly, notes are coming in and all sorts of production stuff is coming in, like for instance, ‘that thing over there is now a window not a door so adjust that.’ Or, ‘we’re not going to this town now, we’re going to this town’. That kind of stuff happens constantly and will continue to happen for the next few months”.

Whilst the two films are their own separate entities, the writers have confirmed that they are – as you might expect – connected.

“When we lock ourselves in a room with the Russo brothers and a couple of execs from Marvel, one wall has cards for movie one and the other wall has cards for movie two and another wall has little baseball cards of every character still alive in the Marvel universe – down to Darcy’s boyfriend in Thor 2 – literally, anybody who did not die and has been established as alive. And then we looked at that began to shuffle the cards around”.
