Jaimie Alexander To Return As Lady Sif In Thor: Love And Thunder

To say that Marvel fans were upset that Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif wasn’t in Ragnarok would be an understatement. After proving to be a standout character in both of the earlier, less critically appealing Thor movies, everyone was excited to see her return, but obligations to her hit show Blindspot prevented the actress from reprising the role. Perhaps that was for the best, though, as the God of Thunder’s third solo outing pressed a soft-reset button on the franchise, which resulted in the death or disappearance of several fan-favorite side characters.

In any case, we already know that Alexander is game to return and now, we’re hearing that she’ll soon be seen back on the big screen. According to sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who told us Black Mask will be gay in Birds of Prey and that Moon Knight was coming to the McU,

Review: Annihilation (2018)

Owing to Netflix’s staggeringly bad synopsis, I put off watching this movie for some time. And oh my goodness, what a mistake that was! Adapted and directed by Alex Garland from the novel written by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation is a shimmering star in the quagmire of recent cliché-ridden sci-fi movies.

It begins with Lena Kerans (Natalie Portman), a cellular-biology professor struggling to rebuild her life after her military hubby went Mia twelve months earlier. When he mysteriously shows up at her door in a near-catatonic state and collapses, a squad of Special Ops soldiers kidnap the couple and take them to a secret military base. Whilst there, the cause of his illness is revealed to Lena: a dome of energy coined the ‘Shimmer’ has grown over a huge area, mutating the land. The cause of the Shimmer is unknown. It could be an act of god, an extraterrestrial event,

Taika Waititi confirms that Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will lead Thor: Love and Thunder

During Marvel’s big Phase Four unveiling at the San Diego Comic-Con International back in July, it was announced that Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will be making her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2021 as he character assumes the mantle of the Mighty Thor for Thor: Love and Thunder.

However, will Portman’s Goddess of Thunder will make her debut in the film, returning Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has now clarified that Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will still be the lead in the movie, the fourth instalment in the Thor solo series. Check out his comments to MTV News here…

Kat Dennings Reportedly Returning As Darcy For Thor: Love And Thunder

Marvel’s announcement of Thor: Love and Thunder at Sdcc surprised us all as it was revealed Natalie Portman was returning to the franchise as Jane Foster. The Oscar-winning actress hasn’t been seen in the McU since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World – her Avengers: Endgame cameo utilized old footage – and given that Ragnarok moved away from the first two Thor films, we assumed the fourth one would continue to do its own thing.

However, it’s looking like Portman will be joined by another star of the early movies in Love and Thunder, as We Got This Covered has heard that Kat Dennings will reprise her role as Darcy Lewis in the film. Our sources – the same ones who told us Taskmaster will be the villain in Black Widow – say that she’ll definitely be back, though the specifics on her part in Taika Waititi’s pic are currently unknown.

Deadpool May Make His McU Debut In Thor: Love And Thunder

Now that we know Deadpool will be appearing in the McU some time before the third installment of his individual franchise, fans are left to speculate which film he’ll be making his long-awaited debut in. Our sources – the same ones who told us about those Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk shows before Marvel revealed them – say that it’s currently undecided which 2021 McU movie will be lucky enough to welcome Wade Wilson into the cinematic universe, but it stands to reason that Thor: Love and Thunder could make the most sense.

The flick is already set to enact some huge changes to the McU, such as Academy Award winner Natalie Portman taking over the reigns from original Thor actor Chris Hemsworth. It also might be planning on bringing back a lot of relics and faces from the past, including the famous hammer Mjölnir, Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and Peter Dinklage’s Eitri.

95% Of Thor: Love And Thunder Will Reportedly Take Place In Outer Space

Seeing how little we know about Marvel’s upcoming Thor: Love And Thunder, fans will have to be satisfied with rumors and theories for now. And the latest scoop to hit the internet about Natalie Portman’s future stint as the Goddess of Thunder is that 95% of the movie will be taking place in space.

These things, as always, need to be taken with a grain of salt, but if true, it would make for a pretty epic little space opera. Not to mention that additional reports claim that Peter Dinklage will return as Eitri and Chris Pratt is set to cameo as Star-Lord. Which makes sense, because, well, outer space. On top of all that, Taika Waititi is eyeing Stranger ThingsFinn Wolfhard for a role in the film. Whew. How about we just focus on the space rumor for now, though?

Tiff Review: ‘Lucy in the Sky’ is an Insufferable Failure on Every Level

I’m not going to mince words here: Lucy in the Sky is a terrible film. It’s a disaster, a fiasco, a complete tragedy. It’s the kind of film that will have people clamoring for the thesaurus because one word cannot summarize just how bad it is. This is the first film by Noah Hawley, the man responsible for the TV series Fargo and Legion, and his jump from TV to the big screen feels like he’s leaping into an industrial shredder. This film is so bad it made me wish director jail was a real place, where Hawley could be locked inside, and the key flown thousands of miles away so it could be cast into an ocean on the other side of the world. The fact that someone like Hawley has been able to attain this much power, money, and artistic freedom to make something

Link Tank: 8 Adorable Facts About Muppet Babies

Spencer Mullen Sep 17, 2019

Muppet Babies, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Thor: Love and Thunder, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

Here's three reasons on why you should expect a Mace Windu comeback in The Rise of Skywalker.

"In Attack of the Clones, Jedi Master Mace Windu said “This party’s over!” but what if the Samuel L. Jackson party is just getting started? Could Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker pull the most unexpected cameo of all time and bring Mace Windu back just in time to close out the saga? It might be a long shot — or the fan version of wishful thinking — but talking about Jackson returning to Star Wars at the 11th hour isn’t as crazy as it sounds. Here are three reasons to expect a Mace Windu appearance in Episode IX."

Stranger Things Star Rumored For Key Role In Thor: Love And Thunder

Depending on your tolerance for Internet rumors, you may (or may not) have caught last week’s 4Chan blowout, in which a number of big, big claims were made regarding the McU Phase 4.

And sure enough, these rumored tidbits pertained to practically every major project nestled within Phase 4 – from Black Widow to The Eternals – leaving many to wonder and speculate about what’s to come. The latest concerns Thor: Love and Thunder and, more specifically, the person(s) who may be joining Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tessa Thompson when the time comes for Marvel to begin production.

We already know Chris Pratt, he of Guardians of the Galaxy fame, is expected to cameo – cue the testosterone-fueled standoff between Star-Lord and Thor – though we’re now hearing Marvel Studios and writer-director Taika Waititi may also have their eyes trained on Finn Wolfhard, star of Stranger Things and the so-hot-right-now It: Chapter Two.

Taika Waititi Reveals Who The Real Star Of Thor: Love And Thunder Is

Thor: Love and Thunder will make a big change to the franchise as Natalie Portman is due to return as Jane Foster, but this time Thor’s ex will be Thor herself. As announced at Comic-Con by having the actress walk on stage wielding a replica Mjolnir, Jane will be worthy of holding the hammer in the 2021 movie and become a Goddess of Thunder.

This is easily the most-discussed element of the film, then, but do Jane’s new powers mean that this is Portman’s movie? Definitely not, according to writer/director Taika Waititi. When speaking to MTV News, the Thor: Ragnarok helmsman was asked to clarify who Lat‘‘s main star is and Waititi left no doubt that it’s Chris Hemsworth.

“It’s Chris [Hemsworth]. It’s a Thor film. He is Thor, it’s a Thor film. She’s in it.”

Marvel Will Introduce A New Guardians Of The Galaxy Team After Vol. 3

With the exception of the Avengers films, no Marvel Studios series has so far made it beyond movie number three. And while Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder is set to break that pattern when it arrives in theaters two years from now, the highly anticipated fourquel is expected to bring some big changes to the saga, including a passing of the torch from Chris Hemsworth to Natalie Portman.

With that in mind, let’s talk about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. If director James Gunn’s recent comment on Instagram is anything to go by, then the Guardians’ next outing will likely serve as the filmmaker’s final entry in the cosmic superhero series. But while Gunn may be calling it quits after Vol. 3, sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who told us Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk shows were in development

Tiff: "Lucy in the Sky" Flung Out of Taste

by Chris Feil

Fargo and Legion’s Noah Hawley makes his big screen directorial leap with Lucy in the Sky, a loosely transcribed true story stripped of its sensationalism. But despite this diaperless retelling of the infamous story of an earthbound astronaut’s struggles with mental illness and her eventual attempt on her lover’s life, Hawley still flattens the drama for this would-be intense character study. Even with Natalie Portman at its forefront, doing another of her signature bold, safety-net-free characterizations, Hawley’s more pseudo-humane vision is defined by its inertia. It’s too boring to be embarrassing...

Don’t Believe the Tiff Hype: ‘Hustlers’ Is More Globes than Oscars, ‘A Hidden Life’ Is Fox Searchlight’s Gem

Don’t Believe the Tiff Hype: ‘Hustlers’ Is More Globes than Oscars, ‘A Hidden Life’ Is Fox Searchlight’s Gem
The Toronto International Film Festival’s welcoming audiences and traffic-chasing media can deliver a mighty headwind for movies hoping to gain momentum in the Oscar race. But not everybody gets that push. And the reality does not always match the clickbait headlines.

Yes, festival fave “Hustlers” rode a tsunami of press. After all, Jennifer Lopez is an established global star who knew exactly what to do with her alluring role as a pole-riding stripper. But while all that buzz might pull moviegoers into theaters this weekend, “Hustlers” (which B-movie distributor Stx took over from A-movie producer Annapurna) is far more likely to play for the Hollywood Foreign Press than the more tony Academy voters, who want their Oscar contenders to shine with the patina of art. If the movie is a hit and Lopez’s team finds financial backing for an awards campaign, she could squeak into a Supporting Actress slot.

Toronto International Film Festival 2019 Review – Lucy in the Sky

Lucy in the Sky, 2019

Directed by Noah Hawley

Starring Natalie Portman, Dan Stevens, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz, Colman Domingo, Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman, Tig Notaro, Pearl Amanda Dickson and Jeffrey Donovan

Synopsis

After returning to earth, an obsessive astronaut (Natalie Portman) begins to question her place in the universe — including her relationships with her gentle husband (Dan Stevens) and her alluring crewmate (Jon Hamm) — in the debut feature from accomplished television showrunner Noah Hawley.

In Noah Hawley’s feature directorial debut Lucy in the Sky, Natalie Portman gives a compelling performance as astronaut Lucy Cola in this loosely based on true events tale. Unfortunately, Portman is just about the film’s sole saving grace as the drama has more style than substance. Its exploration of Lucy’s mid-life and existential crisis is good and made stronger thanks to Portman, but that’s just not enough for it to fully take off.
