Warning: Spoilers! Unlike WandaVision , The Falcon and the Winter Soldier delivered on its promise of a big surprise cameo in the latest episode Truth . The show featured Emmy-award-winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus making a styled entry into the MCU as Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine. The Veep star joines the epic Marvel Cinematic Universe in this surprise appearance, which could spawn tons of new stories, movie spinoffs and series possibilities for the MCU, inspired by some of the most beloved and acclaimed Marvel Comics special issues of all time. Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Cameo The short screen time for Julia Louis-Dreyfus left too much on the plate for the audience to grasp. Julia Louis-Dreyfus appears as Contessa Valentina after John Walker is stripped of his mantle as Captain America and is even court-martialed, leaving him without the rank and respect he earned putting his life at risk for the nation. As he sits disgruntled alongside his wife … [Read more...] about What Does The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Surprise Cameo Mean for the MCU’s Future?
Oumuamua what does it mean
Announced last year, the MCU Phase 4 entry Black Panther II , which will mark the 30th film set within the shared continuity of the cinematic universe, has got a working title. The film, aiming for July 2022 release, is gearing up for production in Georgia under the working title Summer Break . This is not the first time Marvel Studios has given one of its ventures a nickname. Currently, most of the Phase 4 films are into early or mid-stages of production. For instance, earlier, the working title of Thor: Love And Thunder was announced to be The Big Salad, which was a Seinfeld reference. Seinfeld has been referenced a couple of times in Marvel working titles. Summer Break is a title which currently doesn't make much sense in context to the franchise, unless it is referencing the Summer of George . That Seinfeld classic was already used as the working title for Spider-Man: Homecoming , though. The Black Panther II workin title may come to be of some significance when a … [Read more...] about Black Panther II Working Title Leaks, So What Does It Mean?
Oakland MC AllBlack can’t help but laugh. Before getting on the phone with me in March, he was tending to a comedy of errors in his home. “They were mounting one of my TVs up on the walls, so I’m trying to talk to the TV mounters while I’m trying to give my daughter a pacifier, but she keeps spitting it out,” AllBlack says. “It was crazy. Then I got this call that I can’t miss. I was so overwhelmed. I just sat back and busted out laughing. I’m just like, it’s good stress.” He has reason to be calm. AllBlack, born D’Andre Sams, has dealt with much stickier situations. On his most recent project, last October’s No Shame 3 , he’s confessional and raw about a life of hustling, trapping, and everything in between. Across the rapper’s discography are clear-eyed missives about a life spent going down the wrong path. It’s a long and winding journey that’s taken Black all over California and, briefly, to Atlanta, where he tells me he used to hype his friends’ music at strip clubs … [Read more...] about Oakland Rapper AllBlack Is Nothing If Not Grateful
A review of “Truth,” this week’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier , coming up just as soon as I’m right-handed… “Truth” opens with a fight scene that has felt inevitable since the end of the first episode, as our title characters go after the off-brand Captain America to reclaim the shield he just used to very publicly commit murder. Choreography-wise, it’s much less fancy than Sam’s aerial battle with Batroc in the premiere, much less the similar three-way brawl in the climax of Captain America: Civil War . But it hits harder than any action scene this show has done so far because there are real emotional stakes to it. John Walker has snapped, and both Sam and Bucky want no part of him holding onto the weapon that belonged to, and still represents, Steve Rogers. The two of them are just barely able to take him down, with Sam leaving his ruined wings behind with Torres but bringing the shield with him back to America.

A 15-minute interview with Pete Townshend is a near-impossibility. Not only is he one of the most eloquent and thoughtful figures in rock history, but he’s also one of the most loquacious. And even though we said that we’d limit this conversation — tied to the new deluxe edition of The Who Sell Out — to 15 minutes, per a request from one of his representatives, Townshend’s answer to our first question after a few icebreakers clocked in at seven minutes and eight seconds. There was so much more we wanted to discuss at that point, including the impact of Sgt. Pepper on The Who Sell Out, his disappointment when “I Can See for Miles” failed to become a hit, and how he sizes up Sell Out next to latter-day albums like Who’s Next . Looking forward, we also wanted to hear about the status of the next Who record, the challenges of writing songs that Roger Daltrey will agree to sing, returning to the road after the pandemic, and the possibility of a Who biopic.
