Fool me once, shame on you. But fool me four or five times, honestly I’ve lost count, well then that’s also on you (look, I’ve only seen two that I can remember). I thought when Marvel subtitled the last Avengers movie End Game and killed off Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, they meant that shit. However, this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced they were just joshing and will release two more Avengers movies in 2025, bringing the total of Avengers movies past the brink of sanity. Again, don’t blame me. Marvel head Kevin Feige has not returned my messages suggesting that at least one of them be titled Avengersagain: 2 Many Averngersmen. Like I said, not my fault. I tried.
Despite Getting One Of The Lowest Audience Scores In The MCU, “Doctor Strange 2” Made A Ton Of Money This Weekend
Since this weekend was Mother’s Day, I would have assumed the hottest ticket in town was an off-off-off Broadway show called Brunch! or, Do You Ever Wear That Smart-Looking Sweater I Gave You Dear?. As it turns out, it was Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (aka Doctor Strange 2). A whole lot of people went to see Benedict Cumberbatch do his best superhero voice in a fancy red cape and Paulie Walnuts hair, but some of those same people might describe Doctor Strange 2 as more of a Doctor Stinker #2, if you ask them.
Elizabeth Olsen stars alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in the newest Marvel movie that’s going to make trillions of dollars at the box office this weekend. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was released today and Elizabeth has been doing the promo rounds as the big Marvel people do. One such activity is a digital cover story for Harper’s Bazaar UK where Elizabeth talks about how she isn’t one of those celebrities who complain about being famous because being in the public eye means things are going well. And she’s telling the truth; she’s just a celebrity who complains about having super famous siblings.
The First Reviews For “Morbius” Are Out, And It Sounds Like Jared Leto Should Prepare His Razzie Speech Now
Jared Leto must have heard all the people joking that he’s aging like a vampire because he decided to star in Marvel’s Morbius, the story of a man who is also a doctor who is also a guy with a rare blood disease who is also a vampire. If that sounds convoluted as hell, well – you’re not the only one. Initial reviews have been released of Morbius, in theaters everywhere tomorrow. Jared is likely going to wish he could go back to the time when people were simply cracking jokes about him aging like a vampire, because now they’re cracking jokes about how god-awful terrible his vampire movie is. I’d make an “It sucks!” vampire pun, but honestly, it feels like pretty much every film review writer has already beat me to it.
Another high-profile Academy Award-winning director has decided to give their thoughts on superhero movies, aka the genre that has recently been dominating Hollywood harder than John Candy’s agent in the 80s. But unlike the current reigning champion of superhero hate Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh isn’t here to be a total killjoy in regards to Marvel and DC’s catalog of films. Steven says he’ll likely never direct a superhero, simply because they’re not realistic. He’s got an issue with the flying and the spandex and the lasers shooting out of people’s hands, but specifically – he’s not into it because nobody is fucking.
Forget for a second that “Madame Web” sounds like what you’d get if the 50 Shades of Gray franchise crossed over with the characters of Charlotte’s Web. But this isn’t what this is! Madame Web is a Marvel comic book character who first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #210, published in 1980, and she’s about to become a big-screen star with a film adaptation. And according to some well-placed sources, Madame Web herself will be played by none other than Dakota Johnson.
