Published

With Marvel beginning to roll into its next phase of films, the questions have begun to surface about the real threat of Thanos in the MCU.  What we do know, is that everything has been building to the two part showdown with Thanos in 2018 and 2019, we know that it’s going to take more than just “The Avengers” to stop him.  But how much more?

Directors Joe & Anthony Russo spoke to Comicbookmovie.com about the upcoming films. Here’s what they had to say:

“That is another one that we would have to reserve as a surprise, but we will say this: People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of Infinity War is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.”

It would appear that Infinity Wars I & II plan to deliver a collective of heroes from the Marvel Universe.  When asked how they would keep these films grounded like their predecessors they responded by saying:

“Anything that you could think of that has to do with fantasy or sci-fi or superheroes was in our universe. We’re just going to approach the cosmic side with the same fervor that we did the earthbound work we’ve been doing. We also are going to work really hard to bring a psychological realism. We obviously can’t bring a naturalism to it because it doesn’t really exist outside of science fiction, but we can bring that psychological realism to it, to the characters, and that’s going to be our focus.”

It will be exciting to see how the upcoming films in the MCU move us towards the ultimate showdown against one of the most dangerous villains in the universe.  Based on what the Russo brothers have said, it would be safe to assume there will be more yet to be seen heroes who will be involved with these films.

Tom Holland Opens Up To Entertainment Weekly About Spider-Man: No Way Home

Published

on

“I don’t think I’ve cried like that ever.”

It’s no secret that ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. The first trailer for the upcoming film, revealed the return of past villains from previous Spider-Man franchises, including Alfred Molina as Doctor Octopus with hints of Willem Defoe and Jamie Foxx returning as Green Goblin and Electro.

Recently, Tom Holland sat down with Entertainment Weekly and opened up about what it was like to work with the legend, Alfred Molina on set.

“It was really fun to watch him see how technology has advanced,” Holland adds. “When he was making these films, the arms were puppets, and when we did it, they’re all imaginary and CG. It was quite cool to see him relive it, but also relearn it.”

Holland went on further to suggest, while filming “No Way Home,” there was a new level of confidence and comfort on set which allowed for everyone to be much more relaxed. 

“The first film, [director] Jon Watts and I were sort of flying by the seat of our pants,” Holland says. “This one, I think we both felt really confident, so we were able to relax. We actually had so much more fun on this one than we did on the previous two.”

Holland says ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ is a conclusion of sorts and will mark the third appearance for Holland in his solo films. Holland says, this film will wrap up the narrative he and Director Jon Watts set into motion back in 2017.

“We were all treating [No Way Home] as the end of a franchise, let’s say,” he adds. “I think if we were lucky enough to dive into these characters again, you’d be seeing a very different version. It would no longer be the Homecoming trilogy. We would give it some time and try to build something different and tonally change the films. Whether that happens or not, I don’t know. But we were definitely treating [No Way Home] like it was coming to an end, and it felt like it.”

Holland says, that after five years of making these films, he found the final days of filming very emotional with his co-stars, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon who will be retuning as Ned, best friend to Peter Parker. 

“We’ve been making these films for five years now,” Holland explains. “We’ve had such an amazing relationship, the three of us. We’ve been with each other every step of the way. We’ve done every single film, every single press tour. So this one scene, [we didn’t know] if this would be the last time [we were all working together.] [It] was heartbreaking but also really exciting because we’re all moving into the next chapter of our careers. So sharing that moment with them was maybe the best day I’ve ever had on set. I don’t think I’ve cried like that ever.”

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is set to hit theaters December 17, 2021

Marvel One-Shot: “All Hail the King” Review

Published

on

Before you see Shang-Chi, you may want to watch or rewatch these Marvel projects. 

For the most part in this exciting chapter in the next phase of the MCU, Shang-Chi tells it’s own standalone origin story. However, throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s history there are pieces you could revisit which would make your viewing experience probably much better and catch you up too speed as Marvel and Disney + are giving you a refresher on all things Ten Rings. 



The terrorist organisation has been part of the MCU since the very beginning, when Tony Stark got kidnapped by them in Afghanistan in 2008’s Iron Man. The Ten Rings then resurfaced in 2013’s Iron Man 3 , when their mysterious and shadowy leader The Mandarin( Sir Ben Kingsley) was revealed to be a cover for Aldrich Killian played by Guy Pearce. The Mandarin was actually a washed up actor by the name of Trevor Slattery, who was bribed with drugs and money to play the part.

Newley added conveniently onto Disney + is  2014’s Marvel’s One Shot titled All Hail the King, which was originally released on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray. It follows Trevor who is now in prison for posing as The Mandarin and is dealing with prisoners who worship him and hate him, especially the Ten Rings who have hunted him down and want Slattery out of prison because the actual Mandrin wants to meet him and reclaim his name back, I certainly hope we get this meeting in Shang-Chi. 

This One-Shot is a hilarious obscene epilogue to Iron Man 3 where Trevor has been enjoying the notoriety and is now being interviewed by a documentary filmmaker named Jackson Norris. He’s discussing with Trevor the possibilities of The Ten Rings being angry with him for impersonating their leader. This is new to him and of course paranoia ensues.

Ben Kingsley has some quick witted dialogue from writer/director Drew Pearce. Slattery is both delusional and oblivious which definitely brought some entertaining results. It works so well with a dark comedic tone whilst having a 1970’s aesthetic feel attached to it. It serves to tie up lose ends from the Iron Man trilogy and seemingly sets up more things to come aka Shang-Chi. 



Scoot McNairy was also fun to watch as he grows in frustration to Trevor’s utter ignorance to all his surroundings. There’s also some twists and a really fun cameo in the mid-credits sequence, a character whom we haven’t seen in quite a while.

Overall this 14 minute short film which was initially released as a bonus on the Blu-ray for Thor: The Dark World has now major ramifications and significance within the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that the Ten Rings organisation have taking centre stage. 

All Hail the King is now streaming on Disney+. And finally on September 1st Marvel Studios Legends will release a new recap episode focusing on The Ten Rings.
