Shuri Avengers

We are just a month away from the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame, which is easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year. After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, our heroes are reeling after one of the biggest losses since they’ve teamed up. But as devastated as they are, they know they must “Avenge The Fallen,” a tagline that can be seen written all over the newly released character posters.

And now, Marvel Studios has released a featurette for the upcoming film that sees the cast talk about the state of mind of which their characters are in now. Additionally, there are a few more character posters that will answer one of the biggest questions many of us had about Infinity War: Does Shuri (Letitia Wright) survive? Check out the featurette and these posters, below.

Candyman 1992

Last month it was reported that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was in talks to join writer and producer Jordan Peele‘s spiritual sequel to Candyman. At the time it sounded like Abdul-Mateen II would be taking over the title role played by Tony Todd in the 1992 original and all of its sequels, but apparently that is not the case.

Director Nia DaCosta spoke briefly about the spiritual sequel recently, and revealed that Abdul-Mateen II actually wasn’t replacing Todd as the new Candyman. See what she had to say below.

Justice League

And so begins another episode of the tiresome saga of Zack Snyder version of Justice League that never was. Everyone has their thoughts on the matter, with devoted fans demanding that Warner Bros. release the co-called “Snyder Cut.” It is a cut that they believe exists from before he had to exit to address some personal matters. Though many behind the scenes have said it doesn’t exist to begin with, it’s unclear if the film would have made it any better (or worse). But one thing is for sure: we aren’t going to get it.

And now Snyder reveals why. According to him, the original Justice League script was never shot. More on the report below.

Movie Review: Dumbo (2019)

DUMBO

Dumbo (2019)
Director: Tim Burton
Writer: Ehren Kruger
Cast: Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Nico Parker, Finley Hobbins, Alan Arkin
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | Minutes: 112
Release Date: March 29, 2019

Walt Disney Animation Studio’s Dumbo (1941) is considered to be one of the greatest hand-drawn films ever to be released by the animation studio. And like most of the studio’s timeless animated features, it got the live-action adaptation treatment.

Tim Burton, who has worked under the Disney banner numerous times before, gets behind the lens once more to direct this new telling of the titular baby elephant who has all of his unique and whimsical signature touches but also still stays true to the tender, sweet, and warm spirit of the animated original. Though some of its bigger stars don’t add any depth to this reimagining, Dumbo himself and the debuts of Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins bring plenty of charm to the film that reminds us about why we love Disney’s favorite baby elephant and what makes outsiders so endearing. My full review blow.

Zack Snyder Justifies Why His Batman Kills and Wants People To “Wake The F*** Up”

Ben Affleck As Batman With Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder made a few visually stunning comic book film adaptations before he was brought in to helm the DC Extended Universe. Once there, he brought a darker and more brooding tone to the DCEU, which was a stark contrast to the lighter and funnier Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though this darker superhero universe had its fan base, it never could achieve the same level of success as the MCU. And it didn’t help that there were those who were opposed to Snyder’s interpretation of these beloved characters, many of whom went against their codes or just against the source material in general.

Case in point, Batman. Then played by Ben Affleck, the DCEU’s version saw Batman kill. Something of which he has done before, whether that was freely, inadvertently, or something that could be debated. But the Dark Knight is perhaps known for his no kill policy. It is a policy that Snyder doesn’t care about. In fact, he has one thing to say to you if you don’t like his Batman killing: “Wake the fuck up.” More on the report below.

‘Dumbo’s Writer Ehren Kruger On Expanding On The Mythology Of The Animated Original

Dumbo

Disney’s 1941 animated feature Dumbo did not have much of a script. The film, which saw the titular pachyderm go off an adventure of a lifetime after he was separated from his mother, explores themes of friendship, tolerance of differences, and self-confidence. So when it was announced that the studio would be releasing an updated version of that with a live-action retelling, they tasked writer Ehren Kruger with expanding upon the original while also making it fresh by adding new themes to it.

At the Dumbo press conference, Kruger spoke about some of the challenges that came with expanding the animated original, which was 60 minutes long, to an updated 100-plus-minute film.
