Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) in STAR WARS: EPISODE IX.

When the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker title first appeared at the end of the new teaser trailer, fans had a few theories on what it could mean. But director J.J. Abrams had a chance to speak about the meaning of the title. While he couldn’t provide any specifics, he did leave fans enough to go on.

Additionally, Abrams addressed the mysterious laugh that was heard at the end of The Rise of Skywalker trailer, and how George Lucas had a hand in shaping the film. Check out all of this in the full report here below.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the epic conclusion to a 40-plus year story arc that first started in 1977 with Star Wars: A New Hope. Fans who have stuck with the franchise since the very beginning have seen the rise and fall of the Skywalker family, and though things may have seemed bleak towards the end of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Jedi and Skywalker legacy will continue to live on.

But what sort of menacing threat awaits our heroes like Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe (Oscar Isaac).

Avengers: Endgame

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, also known as the Russo brothers, have been a part for the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2014, when they directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Their unique take on the superhero genre with an added political thriller vibe was so much of a success that they were brought in to oversee Captain America: Civil War, a smaller scale ensemble that brought in other heroes together to fight amongst themselves. They eventually went on to direct the final two Avengers films, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the latter of which hits theaters later this month.

Geeks of Doom was invited to participate in the global press conference for Avengers: Endgame, where the Russo brothers talked about the upcoming and possibly final Avengers film, their approach to making films, and more. Check out what they had to say below.

Marvel Studios has been keeping some of the bigger plot details of Avengers: Endgame a secret for the better part of the past year.

Others shared their thoughts on starting this new journey. Check out what they had to say below.

Shazam! Header

As expected, Shazam! was the number one film at the box office last weekend. In fact, it exceeded everyone’s expectations grossing over $56.8 million for a $159 million worldwide haul.

With the superhero film starring Zachary Levi and Mark Strong reaching key benchmarks, it looks like WB wants to keep that momentum going by bringing back the film’s first writer Henry Gayden. Additionally, director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran are both likely to return as well. More on the report below.

J.J. Abrams Almost Turned Down Chance To Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Star Wars The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams

One has to wonder what a Star Wars: Episode IX would have looked like under Colin Trevorrow‘s direction. But he was no longer attached to the project before production could even start. J.J. Abrams was then signed on to direct his second Star Wars feature.

But for a franchise that looked like it was going to have different directors attached, Disney and Lucasfilm must have made a very enticing offer to the filmmaker. That’s because Abrams almost turned down Star Wars: Episode IX. More on the report below.

Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans)

We are just a few weeks away from the release of Avengers: Endgame, one of the most highly anticipated superhero films of the year. Needless to say, after the events of Avengers: Infinity War everyone is on edge. Nearly half of the heroes have been turned into dust with a simple snap of Thanos’ fingers. Of course, he had some help with the Infinity Stones. Now the Avengers want revenge. And they will have some added help from a mostly absent Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). But she has a very good explanation for that. Check out what the Avengers’ plan of attack will be and if they can survive Thanos’ brutality in a newly released clip, which you can watch below.

The Dark Tower Idris Elba as Roland Deschain

The fact that we are getting James Gunn films from both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DCEU is a gift. After the director was fired by Disney on their third Guardian of the Galaxy film – but before he was subsequently reinstated – Gunn was brought in to write and direct The Suicide Squad. The new film, which was considered to be a soft reboot at the time, is not loosely using the term, as characters and actors from David Ayer‘s original film are returning. Jai Courtney will be back to play Captain Boomerang, and now Viola Davis will return as Amanda Waller.

However, Idris Elba, who was tapped to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, is no longer being considered for the role of the assassin with deadly accuracy. More on the report here below.
