Captain Marvel concept art

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be a period piece that takes us back to the 1990s. In it, we will see Academy Award winner Brie Larson play as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who is endowed with cosmic alien powers and gets caught up in an intergalactic war between two alien races. But it’s not so much about the film’s plot or setting as it is who we will be seeing again. Seeing again as in, characters who we thought wouldn’t appear on screen ever again, are returning to the MCU once more. Just in a different timeline.

We know that Nick Fury is in this, so it only makes sense that Clark Gregg would return to reprise his role as Agent Phil Coulson. And because the film is about the war between the Kree and the Skrull, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan. More on this and a brand new photo, below.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald wants to know, who will stand against the darkness?

In the very likely event that the evil Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) escapes from his wizardry imprisonment, and follows through on his malevolent plans, it will most likely have to be Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to thwart it. And we get a sense of the impending doom that is about to befall in the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Check it out below.

Brie Larson Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios is making a shift in representation. The superhero studio took their first steps by releasing Black Panther, their first superhero film with a person of color as the lead. So far, the film has grossed over $1 billion worldwide in less than a month, and it’s obvious that the studio will follow that pattern and change in accordance to the social changes. And just as Black Panther was their first for people of color, Captain Marvel will be their first female-led superhero film. Set to be released in March 2019, the film sees Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) go from human to superhuman fighting the alien Skrulls. It will also be the first Marvel film to be set in the ’90s. Larson will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his role as Nick Fury.

Now, just as Avengers: Infinity War is about to be released, we are learning more about some of the upcoming titles coming after the epic ensemble film. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke recently about representation and Captain Marvel, including films that helped inspire it like Terminator 2. Check out more on the story below.

Jude Law

No, Brie Larson did not lose the title role in Captain Marvel. But her character, Carol Danvers, originally started out as a military pilot who adopted the Captain Marvel moniker when she came in contact with the alien Captain Mar-vell.

The film will be an origins story for the title character, which means they would need someone to fill the role of the alien who gave her her powers. Now there are reports saying Jude Law could be the person to do so. More on the story below.

fantastic beasts 2 title treatment

It doesn’t sound like we will be looking for more Fantastic Beasts in the sequel. Instead, fans will be looking at the crimes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). That’s because the official title of the sequel to the Harry Potter prequel is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

And to commemorate the title’s announcement, Warner Bros. has released the first official look at the cast, including our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. Check out the image below.

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword review header

King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword
Director: Guy Ritchie
Screenwriter: Guy Ritchie, Joby Harold, Lionel Wigram.
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis
Distributor: Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes
Release Date: May 12, 2017

The legend of King Arthur has existed for well over a millennia, and as such has given way to countless interpretations of stories, TV shows, and films. So while we may be familiar with the name, there will always be a new way to look at the legend, a new way to tell the story, and a new way to rake in the cash. So just as superheroes are popular now, Guy Ritchie is giving audiences a reason to look at iconic literary characters. But while his previous efforts from the Sherlock Holmes films to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. may have been richly stylized and highly entertaining, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword suffers from a serious case of style over substance.

Check out the full review below.
