Why Is This Surprise Doctor Strange Character Returning in Endgame?

Why Is This Surprise Doctor Strange Character Returning in Endgame?
It was revealed earlier this year that Tilda Swinton will be in the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame. This is exciting, yet confusing news since her character died in 2016's Doctor Strange. However, the main theory floating around about Endgame is that the use of time travel, perhaps through the mysterious Quantum Realm, will play a large role in the sequel as Earth's Mightiest Heroes attempt to reverse the effects of the Mad Titan's Decimation from the conclusion of Infinity War.

The addition of Tilda Swinton's Ancient One was revealed by Avengers: Endgame executive producer Michael Grillo, who said, "When we got Tilda Swinton, she was just a one-day availability." Additionally, the actress is listed in the IMDb page for the sequel. In Doctor Strange, it is revealed that the Ancient One is the guardian of the Eye of Agamotto, which contains the Time Stone. In addition to protecting it, she

Will Doctor Strange Have A Cameo In Captain Marvel?

By now, much of the Marvel fandom is practically taking it as fact that Avengers: Endgame will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes travel back in time, but according to a new fan theory that emerged on Reddit, one character in Avengers: Infinity War may have already done just that, laying the groundwork for a post-credits cameo in Captain Marvel.

Like countless Infinity War theories that have come before it, this new piece of speculation from Reddit user Woot_wooten concerns the scene where Doctor Strange envisions 14,000,605 alternate futures, only one of which sees the team triumph. The theory alleges that not only does Strange see into the future, but he also journeys briefly into the past, specifically to the ‘90s where he informs Carol Danvers and Nick Fury of the disaster that will befall the universe two decades later.

It’s reasoned that this would explain why Fury knew to

Tom Holland Leaked an Avengers: Endgame Quantum Realm Spoiler Last Year

Tom Holland Leaked an Avengers: Endgame Quantum Realm Spoiler Last Year
There are many constants in the world and one of them is that Tom Holland is pretty much guaranteed to spoil a Marvel Cinematic Universe secret. As it turns out, the young Peter Parker actor revealed an Avengers: Endgame spoiler while doing press for Infinity War last year. Holland was approached by an overenthusiastic McU fan while filming Spider-Man: Far From Home last summer about spoilers and he revealed that Marvel Studios would kill him if he spoiled anything again, so this might be the end.

Much like Mark Ruffalo, the latest Tom Holland spoiler was revealed quite some time ago. Ruffalo famously leaked the end of Infinity War well ahead of the movie's release by telling an interviewer that everybody dies. Now, it appears that Holland leaked an interesting part about Avengers: Endgame last year while sitting down for an interview with Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch. When asked

Tom Holland Dropped A Major Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Last Year

Between the recent TV spot, the odd interview comment, and the various toy leaks that continue to make the rounds, we’re getting more Avengers: Endgame material than ever these days for fans to scrutinize for potential clues. But as we take the time to process each new development, it can be all too easy to lose track of the intel that was dropped on our laps many months ago.

One big moment that some of you may recall, for instance, came in April of last year, when Tom Holland dropped one of his patented spoilers during an interview with Access. The revelation came after the Spider-Man actor and his co-star Benedict Cumberbatch were asked which of the two of them flubbed the most lines during the filming of Avengers: Infinity War.

While Cumberbatch quickly offered himself as the answer, Holland then jumped in with this accidentally revealing defense of

Captain Marvel Is on Target for a Huge $100M+ Box Office Debut

Captain Marvel Is on Target for a Huge $100M+ Box Office Debut
Captain Marvel early tracking places the movie around the $100 million-plus range for its debut weekend domestically. Marvel Studios has not put out a movie since Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was in July 2018 and means that fans are hungry for a new outing from the studio. With the dreary ending of Infinity War, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are anxious to see how Carol Danvers will fit into the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters less than two months after Captain Marvel. With that said, Marvel's first female-led movie could end up making a lot more than the $100 million projections.

Outside of Iron Man's $102 million and Black Panther's $202 million, no other origin movie in the McU has made it past the $100 million mark during their opening weekend box office. And in the case of T'Challa, he was technically introduced in Captain America: Civil War. While looking at those numbers,

Box Office: Captain Marvel Shooting For Huge $100M-Plus Opening Weekend

Captain Marvel looks set to light up the domestic box office with what will be the first truly heroic debut of 2019.

Per Variety, the female-fronted superhero flick is currently tracking for a $100M-plus opening in North America, with some independent analysts predicting a figure closer to $120M based on positive word of mouth. Excitement for Captain Marvel is palpable, so we fully expect those numbers to ebb and flow as we approach release day.

Either way, a $100M debut far exceeds that of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which earned $75M in its opening weekend off the back of the $2 billion dollar titan that is Avengers: Infinity War. But Captain Marvel heralds the beginning of a new franchise at Marvel Studios, and by all accounts, it looks as though Carol Danvers will be off to a flyer.

‘Captain Marvel’ Opening Weekend: Around $100M – Early Projection

‘Captain Marvel’ Opening Weekend: Around $100M – Early Projection
Disney’s Captain Marvel from Marvel landed on tracking today, and most early industry estimates are certain that it’s headed to $100M, especially with the pic’s enormous first choice score of 33 and the fact that the trailer clocked a huge 109M views in its first 24 hours, but we have to remember a couple of things:

First, we’re in a funky marketplace. Yes, Captain Marvel could certainly change that. Also, outside of Iron Man‘s $102M and Black Panther‘s $202M (and he was introduced in Captain America: Civil War), no other Marvel origins film has opened to north of $100M, particularly those in the deeper universe, i.e. Doctor Strange ($85M) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($94.3M). That said, we haven’t had a Marvel movie since July, and as Avengers: Infinity War tipped us off in its epilogue, Captain Marvel has something to do with saving

‘Captain Marvel’ on Track for $100 Million-Plus Opening, Rivaling ‘Wonder Woman’

  • The Wrap
Early tracking for Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is projecting that will film will have an opening weekend of over $100 million when it hits theaters on March 8, which would make it the first big box office hit of 2019.

Aside from “Black Panther”‘s mammoth $201 million opening last year, this film is on pace to be the highest opening for a debut superhero installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By comparison, 2016’s “Doctor Strange” opened to $85 million, while 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” opened to $94 million. This tracking also means that “Captain Marvel” could rival or even top the last film to feature a female superhero, “Wonder Woman,” which opened to $103 million in 2017 and went on to gross $412.5 million domestic and $821 million worldwide.

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Satan In Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens

From Smaug in The Hobbit to Shere Khan in Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle by way of The Grinch, Benedict Cumberbatch has lent his distinct pipes to many a devilish figure in his career. You could therefore argue that it was only a matter of time until the Doctor Strange star provided the voice of Satan himself, with Deadline reporting that Cumberbatch will do the honors in the Amazon Prime Video series Good Omens.

Author and showrunner Neil Gaiman revealed as such during a panel at the Television Critics Association, explaining the actor’s inclusion as follows:

“It’s a giant animated Satan. He turns up and we needed a performance that works. So we found a young British help that needed a lot of direction from Douglas… Benedict Cumberbatch.”

TNT Executive Explains ‘Snowpiercer’ Showrunner Shuffle [TCA 2019]

One year ago, TNT ordered a series based on Snowpiercer, the French comic that was adapted into a movie by director Bong Joon-ho. Doctor Strange filmmaker Scott Derrickson directed the pilot and Avatar 2 writer Josh Friedman signed on to run the show, but just weeks later, both Derrickson and Friedman were out.

TNT Chief Addresses ‘Snowpiercer’ Showrunner Changes As Sci-Fi Drama Nears Airdate – TCA
Kevin Reilly has addressed the showrunner changes behind TNT’s long-gestating sci-fi drama Snowpiercer. The chief creative officer of Turner Entertainment, who is also president of TNT, said the Jennifer Connelly-fronted drama should soon see the light of day and that the network is “just playing with the timing of when it airs.”

He also addressed the showrunner changes at the show, which is produced by ITV-backed Tomorrow Studios, Turner’s Studio T, along with Cj Entertainment. This is after things got ugly between former showrunner Josh Friedman, who was replaced by Orphan Black’s Graeme Mason.

Reilly admitted the situation got “very strange.”

“Quite often when you have a change, it signals that you didn’t really buy into their vision. We had a pilot that was very promising with some creative people behind it, and in that case it was a filmmaker [Friedman] who hadn’t really done TV before,

Scott Adkins Auditioned For Batman and You Can Watch His Audition Video

Doctor Strange and Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning actor Scott Adkins was up for the role of Batman at one point before Ben Affleck was ultimately cast in the role for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

He would have certainly been an interesting choice and all these years later an audition tape has surfaced giving us a glimpse at what he would have been like in the role of Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman.

The video comes from the YouTube channel Fortress of Solitude. It’s pretty interesting to see how much the actor looks like a younger version of Ben Affleck. In the audition video, Adkins is reading a scene from The Dark Knight Rises.

Watch the video and let us know if you think Adkins would have worked as Batman.

New Theory: The Dusted Heroes Are the Ones Who Survived the Snap

CinemaBlend has put forth a new theory about the Snap Heard Round the Universe: The dusted characters are the ones who actually survived, and the remaining characters are dead. I don’t know if I buy it, but it has enough merit to deserve consideration. So basically, everyone assumes that everyone who got “dusted” at the end of Infinity War is in the Soul Stone, and Endgame is going to be all about bringing them back, which seems like a no-brainer, and maybe seems supported by the previews, but no one trusts Marvel previews anymore after Hulk never showed up in Wakanda.

However, if you look at the roster of who was dusted and who survived, the dusted ones — Black Panther, most of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man — are the ones who have sequels in development, while the “survivors,” who are mostly the legacy Avengers, do not.

Michael Douglas Confirms That Talks For Ant-Man 3 Have Begun

Amidst the recent news, speculation, and debate about the future of the McU, you don’t hear the Ant-Man series get a whole lot of mentions, which is funny given the unusual place that the property currently holds in the Marvel franchise. While Scott Lang isn’t one of the Phase 1 heroes like Iron Man or Captain America who seem due for a send-off, he also isn’t among the more recent additions like Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange whose first sequels are still to come. And while the character’s films usually don’t generate as much enthusiasm as those of his peers, most fans would still be disappointed to see his journey come to a close with Avengers: Endgame.

Fortunately, it sounds like discussions on Ant-Man 3 have already begun at Marvel Studios, though the details right now couldn’t be vaguer. The issue was briefly touched upon

‘Black Panther’ is out, but ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ visual effects can still make Oscars history for Marvel

‘Black Panther’ is out, but ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ visual effects can still make Oscars history for Marvel
Many of us were surprised when Best Picture contender “Black Panther” was completely snubbed for its visual effects by the Oscars and the Visual Effects Society Awards. For a rare superhero blockbuster in the conversation for top prizes, visual effects seems like the strangest field not to nominate it in. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has actually never won an Oscar for its visual effects, but there is still another hope to make history this year: “Avengers: Infinity War.”

It does make sense that “Infinity War” made the cut instead of “Black Panther.” While “Panther” had better reviews and more overall awards appeal, “Infinity War” had showier effects with dozens of super-powered characters and alien locations, plus the motion capture performance by Josh Brolin as the villainous Thanos. And perhaps Ves and Oscar voters felt it would have been redundant to nominate both Marvel movies, especially since the “Panther” characters and

McU Actor Shares Audition Tape To Be The Next Batman

Holy status report, Batman!

After months of radio silence, Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves finally brought us a substantial update on The Batman – even if that’s merely the placeholder title for Bruce Wayne’s next big-screen outing – last week. First came the long overdue confirmation that Ben Affleck, star of Batman V Superman and the misguided Justice League movie, will indeed be stepping down as Gotham’s Dark Knight, which leaves the door open for a younger actor to take up the role.

Of course, that naturally sent the Internet into a tailspin, with tons of names beginning to pop up as everyone puts forth their own personal pick for the successor to Batfleck. Armie Hammer and The Punisher‘s Ben Barnes have been name-dropped as likely candidates, while even folks like Robert Pattinson and Nick Jonas have come up in conversation. But now, a former McU actor wants

Chris Pratt Agrees That Star-Lord Screwed Up Big In Avengers: Infinity War

Following the deaths of half of the Marvel universe at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, McU fans had only one character to blame. No, not Thanos, despite him being the one to snap all those folks away, but Star-Lord. Viewers unanimously felt that Peter Quill’s violent reaction to finding out that the Mad Titan had killed Gamora foiled his allies’ plan to get the Infinity Gauntlet off Thanos, thereby eventually leading to the villain succeeding in his goals.

But what does Chris Pratt think about the backlash against his character and does this make him nervous about the upcoming Avengers: Endgame? The Guardians of the Galaxy star was asked this while speaking with Digital Spy and revealed that honestly, he kind of agrees with fans’ grievances about Quill’s actions but he’s not worried about Endgame, as he’s sure that people are going to love it.
