I liked Natalie Portman as Jane Foster in the MCU and it's kind of a shame that after Thor: The Dark World, she hasn't been around. It doesn't seem like Marvel has any plans on bringing her back anytime soon. In fact, we probably won't see her again. But, if Marvel does decide that they want to bring the character back, Portman says she's definitely up for it!
During an interview with Screen Rant, Portman was asked if she would be interested in reprising her role in any future Marvel films and this was her response:
"I’m completely open to everything, but I have no news about that." (Laughs)
It's good to know that she would come back if Marvel decided to ask her to, but at this point, I don't think they will. Maybe if Marvel decided to play with the whole female Thor story arc, they would consider it. But, even if they wanted to go that route, it's not hard to imagine them just replacing Jane Foster with Valkyrie. I could totally see Valkyrie as the female Thor!
It seems like that might have been a little tension between Marvel Studio and Natalie Portman after director Patty Jenkins and the studio parted ways on Thor: The Dark World. That's ok, though, because Jenkins went on to direct Wonder Woman. Apparently, Jenkins wanted to give Jane Foster a bigger and more complex role in Thor: The Dark World, but Marvel didn't want to go in that direction so they hired Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) to replace Jenkins.
It just seems the whole experience surrounding that film was sour for Portman, but she's open to returning if Marvel wants her to. One thing that I noticed recently is that Portman wasn't a part of that big ten year Marvel anniversary class photo that was released last week. The fact she wasn't invited to be a part of that, tells me that Marvel is pretty much done with her.
Would you want to see Natalie Portman return as Jane Foster, or do you not even miss the fact that she's gone?
Butch Hartman is most well-known for being the creator of The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom. Both of those shows were amazing as a kid. Well, he recently took to YouTube to explain that he left his home of 20 years, Nickelodeon. It’s crazy to think that Fairly OddParents is 20 years old, and it is sad that he has left the studio, but as he says in the video, this stuff happens. It’s great to see Hartman be positive about Nickelodeon and the future. In the video, he also talks about his history at the studio and how Fairly OddParents started with just 6 episodes they had to keep rerunning for a while. The part that made me the maddest was him talking about how Nickelodeon has the rights to Danny Phantom and therefore he can’t do much with it, but on the bright side, Hartman has said he will do as much as he is legally able to with his characters including Danny Phantom.
Towards the end of the video, Hartman reveals that he’s working on a number of projects and he’s even considering self-releasing a new show on his YouTube channel. That would be awesome! That would be a way for him to maintain control of the property which could lead to some awesome things in the future. Also, don’t forget to check out his app The Noog Network for more Hartman fun.
Dan Stevens doesn't just play a mutant on television, he's kind of one in real life! The actor stopped by The Late Late Show With James Corden to show his unique talent off, which if you didn't read the headline is that he can levitate malted milk balls. I won't spoil you on how he does it before the video, but I will say I was impressed even though I wasn't expecting him to do that! Check it out below:
Submission is a film based on the novel Blue Angel by Francine Prose. It will star Stanley Tucci, Addison Timlin, Kyra Sedgwick, Janeane Garofalo, and Peter Gallagher.
It looks like it could be very interesting to see how the film is received given the current climate involving sexual assault. After reading the synopsis I thought it was going to be a much better Fifty Shades kind of movie. Then I watched the trailer and I noticed things got intense. I was not expecting that kind of a twist.Here’s the synopsis:
Ted (Stanley Tucci) is a once-acclaimed author who teaches writing at a small liberal arts college. Though his marriage to Sherrie (Kyra Sedgwick) is comfortable, he finds himself drowning in discontent -- stuffy departmental dinners at which he drinks too much, smug colleagues whom he dislikes yet fears he resembles, and an endless stream of untalented students. But when a new pupil, Angela (Addison Timlin), shows promise Ted focuses on nurturing her career, and she appears more than willing to devote the one-on-one time required. Basking in Angela's youth, talent, and admiration, just as she benefits from Ted's wisdom, experience, and professional connections, it's only a matter of time before lines are crossed and it becomes unclear whether Ted is predator or prey and Angela is victim or victimizer.
Submission will be in select theaters in New York City on March 2, 2018. It will then be available in Los Angeles and other select cities on March 9, 2018.
I've been waiting for CinemaSins to cover a film I thought was worth picking apart before sharing a video again, and I finally got my chance. Let me start by saying Ender's Game was not an awful film by any means, but it should've been incredible. Honestly, I'm hoping Hollywood gives it another shot down the road, because I was a bit disappointed in how this film turned out. Check out CinemaSins critiques below:
There are some amazing artists in the world. I would put Instagram user dada16808 up there. She has provided some freaking amazing art with the help of her wood crayons and I’m blown away. She’s taken characters from Disney films such as Tarzan and Frozen and combined them into one picture. For example, you have half of Tarzan’s face and half of who I assume is Kerchak’s face. The result is beautiful. This isn’t the only kind of drawing she does though, so I highly recommend checking out her Instagram for more amazing art.
Zachary Levi will be playing the superhero Shazam in the upcoming DC film Shazam! I’m really excited to see him in this role since he’s one of my favorite actors. Well, Levi has released a picture of himself in costume, but unfortunately, he’s wearing a big coat that covers the costume. We do however see him with jet black hair and it seems someone has tanned a little. He’s looking more and more like the superhero from the comics and I’m hoping that DC can turn their luck around and turn out more really good films. I’m sure in the coming weeks and/or months we’ll get an actual look at Levi in full Shazam glory.
Is Kim Kardashian secretly a geek like us? I have no clue, but for whatever reason, she wanted the world to know she was checking out some manga while in Tokyo. Check out her instagram post (via Kotaku) and continue on below:
Many would say Elon Musk is one of the most prolific innovators of our generation, others might call him crazy. After watching this 30 second breakdown of some events in Musk's life, I'm convinced he's a little of both. Check it out below and have a laugh!
You wanna learn how to make that meth from Breaking Bad? This video will totally show you how to make the legal and edible version featured in the show...which is cool...but probably far less thrilling to all you drug addicts out there. It's still a fun treat to make for some get together if you're needing a way to work your love of Breaking Bad into the conversation. Check out the video below and let us know if you make this!
