At the end of Avengers: Endgame , Steve Rogers officially retired from his role as Captain America and passed on his iconic shield to Sam Wilson aka The Falcon, played by Anthony Mackie. In an interview with Variety, Mackie weighed in on the momentous occasion of Sam accepting the legacy of Captain America, and what that moment meant to him personally as an actor. "I was really surprised and affected by the idea of possibly getting the shield and becoming Captain America. I've been in this business a long time, and I did it the way they said you're supposed to do it. I didn't go to L.A. and say, 'Make me famous.' I went to theater school, did Off Broadway, did indie movies and worked my way through the ranks. It took a long time for this shit to manifest itself the way it has, and I'm extremely happy about that."

EXCLUSIVE: Derek Kolstad , the screenwriter behind the John Wick series, is collaborating with Amazon Studios to develop a live-action feature film based on the iconic Japanese action-horror manga Hellsing . “Ever since my brother introduced me to the Hellsing manga and anime some years ago, I’ve been obsessed with adapting it,” Kolstad said. “And when Mike Callaghan and his team managed to secure the rights to then partner us up with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Amazon, I mean -damn, dude- this is a dream.” Written and illustrated by Kouta Hirano and published by Shōnen Gahōsha, Hellsing reimagines Dracula as Alucard, a special agent bound to The Hellsing Organization, under the leadership of Integra Hellsing, great-granddaughter of Abraham Van Hellsing, to aid them in their mission to protect England and the world from vampires, ghouls, and other supernatural threats. The manga also focuses on Hellsing’s newest recruit, a female ex-police officer named Seras Victoria. … [Read more...] about ‘John Wick’ Scribe Derek Kolstad And Amazon Studios Teaming Up On Adaptation Of Japanese Manga ‘Hellsing’
Daniel Brühl skewers celebrity privilege in his directing debut, playing a narcissistic version of himself who gets knocked from his perch by Peter Kurth's resentful neighbor in gentrified East Berlin. There's sardonic self-deprecation in the part Daniel Brühl has chosen for himself in his first feature as director, that of a European movie star sweating over an audition for a Hollywood superhero film that stands to push his fame — and his bank account — to the next level. But celebrity entitlement is only one part of the package. It eventually takes a back seat to gentrification when the protagonist's obliviousness to those left behind in the moneyed makeover of post-reunification East Berlin comes back to bite him in his self-absorbed ass. An amusing, accomplished debut on its own modest terms, Next Door works best as tart meta comedy, becoming increasingly cramped in scope and setting as it spirals into an obsessive revenge thriller. Fans of the actor will enjoy spotting the … [Read more...] about ‘Next Door’ (‘Nebenan’): Film Review | Berlin 2021
This story contains full spoilers for the first season of WandaVision so far . As a comic book character, Wanda Maximoff has an origin story too convoluted to get into here. As a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she has an origin that can be boiled down to a simple idea: She is a child of television. Last week’s penultimate episode of Disney+’s WandaVision flashed back to our heroine’s younger years. While their native country of Sokovia is ravaged by war, the Maximoffs are a happy and tight-knit unit, gathering at night to watch classic American sitcoms via the DVDs that Wanda’s father Oleg sells to pay the bills. On this night, Wanda picks her favorite episode of all: “It May Look Like a Walnut” from The Dick Van Dyke Show , where Rob and Laura Petrie each have nightmares inspired by their viewing of a Twilight Zone -esque sci-fi series. Just as young Wanda beams at the image of Mary Tyler Moore tumbling on a river of walnuts into the familiar … [Read more...] about ‘WandaVision’ Is a Love Letter to TV — And a Reminder of How to Do It Right
WandaVision Director Matt Shakman has denied any plans for Season 2 of the acclaimed Disney+ series. WandaVision debuted on Disney's streaming platform as Marvel Cinematic Universe's first entry for its Phase 4 slate. WandaVision Season 1 is about to end with a season finale this week; however, it doesn't seem that the show will have a conclusive end. Despite getting down to the last episode, the series still has various questions left unanswered including the mystery behind Monica Rambeau's powers, Evan Peters' Quicksilver, and a possible connection to X-Men Franchise. In such a scenario, leaving the show without any chance of renewal for another season will leave the audience with a cliffhanger. There's a possibility that the finale will feature a longer episode and try to finish off with most questions answered; yet, one episode to clear off all speculations is not going to be enough. Speaking on Marvel's WandaVision plans for Season 2, Shakman told Collider this. … [Read more...] about WandaVision Season 2 Plans Don’t Exist Yet Says Director Matt Shakman
