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?
Warning: This article contains spoilers about Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s Episode 5 “Truth”. There was buzz heading into the penultimate season 1 episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier that a new character we haven’t been introduced to before in the MCU would emerge, and surface she did.

Even in a world as volatile as the film industry, Thomas Vinterberg has had some serious ups and downs. After becoming the toast of Cannes in 1998 with his Dogme film Festen , the Danish director fell sharply from grace with the follow-up It’s All About Love and endured several commercial flops before returning to favor with his provocative 2012 Oscar nominee The Hunt . His latest, the drinking drama Another Round , could have set him back to square one—as shooting began, his teenage daughter died in a car crash, and its Cannes premiere was scuppered by the Covid-19 pandemic—but somehow it prevailed, sweeping festival prizes across the globe and bringing Vinterberg back to the Oscar conversation.

At the conclusion of North Dallas Forty wide receiver Phil Elliott, played by Nick Nolte, gets blackballed by his team owner for “smoking a marijuana cigarette.” After being presented with a photo that shows Elliott toking up, the team owner patronizes Elliott and says, “Illegal drugs are forbidden by the league rules Phil, you know that.” To which Elliott replies: “Jesus, smoking grass, what are you kidding me? If you nailed all the ballplayers who smoked grass, you wouldn’t even be able to field a punt return team. Besides that, you give me the hardest stuff in Chicago just to get out of the goddamn locker room. Hard drugs!” Though North Dallas Forty is technically fictional and came out nearly 40 years ago, its story is a classic example of the same-shit-different-day phenomenon. In recent weeks, Bills linemen Marcell Dareus and Seantrel Henderson were each suspended four games for using marijuana. And Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott caused a scandal by simply … [Read more...] about Inside NFL’s Backwards Marijuana Policy
