Warning: The following recap of WandaVision , Episode 9 “The Series Finale” contains some major spoilers: First off, if the title of the episode is any indication, we definitely won’t be getting a second season of WandaVision. Marvel Boss Kevin Feige told the press at TCA last week “to never say never” when it comes to a season 2 of the Elizabeth Olsen-Paul Bettany Disney + Marvel series, but it’s certainly clear now that the series will bridge to the movies Captain Marvel 2 (or upcoming Disney+ Secret Invasion series) as expected and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness . In regards to how the finale directed by Matt Shakman and written by Jac Schaeffer extends to those big pics, read on. However, to clear up a few big things that some were expecting and did not occur: Big bad villain Mephisto never revealed himself, and as of this moment, Agnes’ husband Ralph doesn’t appear to be Mephisto. Later on in the episode as Monica Rambeau … [Read more...] about ‘WandaVision’ “The Series Finale” Recap: What Now For Scarlet Witch, Vision & The Kids?

The new crop of films that screened at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals are evidence that the global pandemic is having an impact on the stories filmmakers want to tell: "The pandemic has just exposed and revealed so many issues that were in our society." The coronavirus pandemic has obviously changed how movies are being made, with the extra costs involved in testing and implementing strict hygienic regimes, and the constant threat hanging over every shoot that a local outbreak or lockdown could shut things down.

Cinema fans were hoping 2021 would be the year that many much-delayed movies would finally be able to release in theaters. While it seems another spate of delays are on the horizon, horror fans are hoping the upcoming Halloween Kills will be able to keep to its October release schedule.
