There’s a completely absurd rumor about the villain of Ant-Man 3. The producer of the next Final Destination teases its potential premise. More shows are facing delays thanks to the novel coronavirus. Zendaya will be in Spider-Man 3, duh. Plus, what’s to come on Supergirl and Batwoman, and another new look at Syfy’s next genre adventure, Vagrant Queen. To me, my spoilers!
During a recent interview with The Philippine Daily Inquirer, Tom Holland confirmed “Zendaya will most definitely be in” Spider-Man 3, perhaps to the surprise of no one.
Get your pym-particle-enhanced giant salt shaker at the ready, because We Got This Covered is alleging that Marvel is ostensibly currently “eyeing” Jim Carey for the voice of M.O.D.O.K. in Ant-Man 3.
In conversation with Digital Spy, producer Craig Perry stated the latest Final Destination film may “take place in the world of first responders.”
We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen and police. These people deal with death on the front lines every day, and make choices that can cause people to live or die. We rely on their good judgement, expertise and calm demeanour. So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death – but now for themselves? We’re thinking that world might be an interesting way into a Final Destination movie, and one which can also generate unique set pieces in a very credible way.
Later in the interview, creator Jeffrey Reddick added “reboot is probably too strong a word” for Final Destination 6.
I’ve been talking to Craig and the concept behind it is unique. I think reboot is probably too strong of a word, it makes it sound like they’re going to change everything, but it’s definitely a Final Destination movie.
David Harbour described his character Red Guardian as “the best” in “all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe” during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
I think I’m biased, but I think it’s the best character in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I mean, he is a narcissist, so it’s very appropriate that I’m playing him and that I think that. But he’s just got so many layers. On one level, he’s your classic superhero badass character, but then when you meet him, he has this need to be liked, and he wants to be thought of as funny and a big shot — which he isn’t.
