Netflix Has a Hidden Stan Lee Tribute and It's Awesome

Netflix has a hidden Stan Lee tribute and it's awesome. Lee passed away earlier this week at the age of 95. While his death is certainly sad, it has produced a number of amazing tributes from fans and people who have worked with the comic book legend for years. The original Avengers took out a full page ad to pay tribute to Lee, while several others have made art, posted pictures, and taken time out of their day to thank Stan Lee for all that he helped introduce to the world.

Netflix still has Marvel Studios content for the time being, and they've added a pretty cool Stan Lee Easter Egg. When you go to the search function, enter Lee's iconic catchphrase, "Excelsior!" and then hit enter. All of the available Marvel content on the streaming platform will show up. Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Spider-Man 3, Jessica Jones, and much more.

The Mandalorian Set Video Shows Taika Waititi Directing The Season Finale

While J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode IX hogs most of the limelight, Jon Favreau’s big budget live-action TV show The Mandalorian might end up being more interesting from a production point of view. Since the show started filming, it’s confirmed a number of interesting directors are working on it, with the most exciting being Thor: Ragnarok‘s Taika Waititi.

Now, we can see Waititi in action helming a scene from the finale courtesy of this video by Making Star Wars (the weird music grows on you after a bit). Seen below, the clip shows some rather Tatooine-looking architecture and seems to be depicting a scene in which Imperial Stormtroopers are conducting some sort of raid.

From within the dwelling a character springs out, disarms the guard and escapes. Or at least, that’s what I think’s going on in this extremely blurry video. Waititi’s role in

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Targeting Bumblebee Director?

We may have a new candidate to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in the form of Travis Knight. Many Marvel fans probably don't know him by name, but Knight is the man behind the upcoming Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, who previously helmed the critically-acclaimed animated feature Kubo and the Two Strings. According to a new rumor, Knight is one of the names on the studio's list to replace James Gunn.

Before pressing forward we must caution that, for the time being, this should be regarded as nothing more than a rumor. Even the report that broke the news cautions as much. That said, the report claims that Travis Knight was being eyed for the job directing The Eternals movie, which is in development as part of the studio's future plans beyond Avengers 4. Apparently, assuming this has any truth to it, they liked Knight enough to consider handing him the

Sam Raimi And Stan Lee Once Tried To Make A Thor Movie With Fox

It’s easy forget that before Thor joined the McU, the Marvel reworking of the Norse god would’ve been fairly unfamiliar to the average filmgoer. So when the late Stan Lee teamed up with future Spider-Man helmsman Sam Raimi in the early ’90s to pitch a God of Thunder movie, perhaps it was to be expected that the project never made it out of the starting gate.

In the wake of Lee’s recent passing, Raimi shared some memories with THR of his time knowing the legendary comic book creator, and after the filmmaker found success with his own original superhero property, it seems that Lee thought he was ready for Thor.

“After I did Darkman, Stan Lee called me and was like, ‘Hey, kid, I liked your movie.’ He took me out to lunch and said we should work together. I said I’d like to make a movie about Thor.

Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian Casts Deadpool Actress

Get ready for some Mma combat in a galaxy far, far away, because the news just broke that Gina Carano has joined the cast of The Mandalorian.

The mixed martial artist turned film star has made appearances in such franchise outings as Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool, though some of you may know her best for her starring role in the 2011 thriller Haywire. In any case, it seems that Lucasfilm is set on bringing us a little hand-to-hand spectacle in their upcoming Star Wars spinoff series.

Though the Disney Plus show has been filming for well over a month, casting details remain thin. So far, the only other actor announced for the series is Pedro Pascal of Narcos and Game of Thrones fame, with a Variety report breaking the story just yesterday.

Willem Dafoe says making Aquaman is very different than Spider-Man

Willem Dafoe, who once played the Green Goblin in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man, says that he enjoys how different it is making Aquaman to that earlier experience.

Sam Rami’s Spider-Man came out 16 years ago and this was the last time that Willem Dafoe has been in a superhero movie. He’s back in the mix now though with Aquaman where he will be playing the character Vulko.

Speaking in a recent interview with CinemaBlend, the actor talked about enjoying the different experiences of making Aquaman and Spider-Man: “They are different. They’re very different – because they have different aims. They’re working with different materials, their working with different intentions. But that’s okay!

“I like to mix it up because that way you don’t get stuck. You don’t start to believe that there’s only one way of doing things, and you don’t start believe

Marvel’s Loki TV Series: What Can We Expect?

James Hunt Nov 14, 2018

The God of Lies is officially heading to the small screen, but what might his comics tell us about the forthcoming series?

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a villain problem almost since it was first conceived, and this problem can be articulated thus: No villain it has produced is as sophisticated as Loki. As played by Tom Hiddleston, Loki is evil enough to root against, but enough of an underdog to root for. We love to hate him as much as we hate to love him. Apt stuff, for a character who thrives on contradiction and uncertainty.

Loki may have faced a rather ignominious and final-looking death on-screen during Avengers: Infinity War, but let’s face it: it’s not like Marvel to waste good IP. After a long rumor cycle, it

‘The Mandalorian’ Targets Pedro Pascal For Title Role In Disney+ Series

‘The Mandalorian’ Targets Pedro Pascal For Title Role In Disney+ Series
Game of Thrones and Narcos star Pedro Pascal is headed to the Jedi universe to portray the title character in The Mandalorian, the live-action Star Wars series that will be a flagship program for Disney+, the ambitious streaming service launching in 2019.

The native of Santiago, Chile, is in final negotiations to star in the series, which chronicles the lone-wolf odyssey of a character who hails from the planet Mandalore, which Star Wars fans know as the homeworld of the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett and Jango Fett.

Pascal memorably portrayed the passionate warrior Oberyn Martell, aka the Red Viper, on the fourth season of the HBO series Game of Thrones. He also played DEA agent Javier Peña on three seasons of Narcos, when the Netflix series centered on the cocaine cartels of Colombia. Pascal also played Agent Whiskey in the Fox feature film Kingsmen: The Golden Circle in 2017.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian TV Series Sets Pedro Pascal as Star

Joseph Baxter Nov 13, 2018

Game of Thrones alumnus Pedro Pascal is set to headline Disney’s streaming Star Wars spinoff series, The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian has selected its titular Mandalorian in Pedro Pascal!

The small-screen Star Wars Universe has landed its first original headlining TV star in Pascal, who, as Variety reports, is in the midst of negotiations after having been offered the lead role in The Mandalorian, a show touted for the upcoming streaming service, Disney+. The series – which will be shepherded by a high-profile writer/producer/showrunner in Jon Favreau – will prospectively see Pascal play an unnamed main character, previously described by Favreau as “a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy.”

Indeed, The Mandalorian will serve as a showcase of the seedier, non-Jedi-related aspects of the Star Wars mythos, set sometime in the decades between the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the Sequel Trilogy’s Empire-emulating retro-fascists,

Pedro Pascal To Star In The Mandalorian

Though Lucasfilm is now well over a month into production on The Mandalorian, the studio has remained curiously silent about casting choices. It therefore comes as a relief to hear news from Variety that Pedro Pascal will be taking the lead in this live-action Star Wars spinoff series.

The actor known for Narcos and Game of Thrones – not to mention the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 – will be heading a cast that is otherwise looking pretty blank for the time being, though the internet has offered plenty of suggestions. For one thing, there’s a rumor going round at the moment that Carl Weathers of Predator and Rocky fame will have a part to play in the Disney Plus show. On top of that, previous reports alleged that Bryce Dallas Howard and Taika Waitit each have minor roles lined up, the latter of whom is supposedly voicing a droid.

While such claims are awaiting confirmation,

Pascal may be joining Carl Weathers, who is also reportedly set to play a role in the series.

‘Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years’ Review (Titan Comics)

Can you believe it has been 10 years since the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to life with the release of the original Iron Man film back in 2008. I certainly can’t. I still remember trying to persuade my reluctant wife to come to see it, but at the time a boys own fantasy of some guy in a suit of technological armour was a hard sell. Now? My wife is Robert Downey’s biggest fan, and has seen every Marvel film released to date. Voluntarily I might add for you cynics out there. It’s been a fun ride, and every time I thought they had bit off more than they could chew (choosing Ant-Man for a movie ahead of so many others? Really? ) Marvel proved not only equal to the task, but over and above.

Carl Weathers Has Reportedly Been Cast in The Mandalorian

There’s still so much that we don’t know about Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian, but since it’s been announced we have been getting little details here and there regarding the series.

Now we’ve recently learned from Making Star Wars that Carl Weathers, who played Apollo Creed in the Rocky films and also starred in Predator, has been cast in the series. There’s no information on who he might be playing in the series, but it will be pretty cool if this report turns out to be true! I’d love to see Weathers in action in the Star Wars universe!

What are your thoughts on the possibility of Carl Weathers playing a character in the upcoming live-action Star Wars series?

Here’s the synopsis that was released for it:

Aquaman’s running time revealed, early reactions draw comparisons to Thor: Ragnarok

Last week, director James Wan took to social media to announce that he’d finished work on December’s Aquaman movie, and now the final running time for the next chapter of the DC Extended Universe has been revealed.

Dark Horizons is reporting that the aquatic adventure clocks in at 143 minutes, which is exactly the same as 2013’s Man of Steel, and the joint-second longest Dceu movie behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at 151 minutes.

Meanwhile, it’s also being reported that reactions to the final cut from test screenings have been very positive, with its tone drawing comparisons to Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok and Ant-Man and the Wasp. If true, it sounds like Aquaman could well please those critics of the Dceu who’ve found some of the previous films too dark and dour.
