New SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Set Video Fuels Hydro-Man Speculation

Thanks to Tom Holland, we have a video from the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home featuring a scene being shot where we see Peter Parker (Holland's stunt double) being blown away by a burst of water.

This video has fans speculating that one of the other villains that could show up in the film is Hydro-Man. I guess that could be a possibility, but there also could be a ton of other reasons as to why Peter Parker is being blasted with water. But... if it is Hydro-Man... cool! For those of you not familiar with Hydro-Man, he's a villain that has the power to manipulate water. 

Holland shared the the video as a way to promote a charity he's involved with called The Brothers Trust, which was started by his parents. Fans who donate to the cause will be entered for a chance to come hang out with Holland on the set of the film. 

All we know about the sequel so far is that Peter Parker will be on summer vacation with his friends in Europe and that he will be facing off with the villain Mysterio. You can read up on some additional rumored information regarding Far From Home here.

The movie stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Michael KeatonJake Gyllenhaal, J.B. Smoove, and Numan Acar.

Jon Watts is directing the film from a script written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKennaSpider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters July 5, 2019.

Would you want to see Hydro-Man in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel?

Joel Kinnaman and More Join Ronald D. Moore’s Upcoming Apple Sci-Fi Series

Ronald D. Moore has filled out the main cast of his upcoming Apple sci-fi series. Joel Kinnaman, who most recently starred in Netflix's Altered Carbon, is set to take on the lead role. The story is set on a world where the global space race never ended and Kinnaman will play a man named Edward Baldwin, who is one of the top NASA astronauts.

It's great to see Kinnaman land another big series role. He is also attached to star in the Amazon series adaptation of the film Hanna and is also known for his roles on the shows House of Cards and The Killing.

The series also cast Michael Dorman (Patriot) and Sarah Jones (Alcatraz) in the series and they have been cast as Gordo and Tracy Stevens, a prominent NASA couple.

There's no title for the series yet, but I've liked the work that Moore has done in the past so I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. It certainly has an interesting premise.

Ryan Reynolds Shares His Original Story Pitch For DEADPOOL 2 That No One Was Impressed With

Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool creative team were on cloud nine after Deadpool ended up being a huge hit at the box office and it didn't take long for them to get to work on developing a sequel. The first thing that happens in that process, though, is to come up with an initial idea for the story and Reynolds pitched a really weird one that the studio was not impressed with. 

While talking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, The actor shared the pitch that he made and it involved a heist based around Deadpool stealing the big red chair from the TV show The Voice. As you might imagine, the idea was rejected! He says:

“At the time – my first pitch to the studio was not met very well. I pitched them for [Deadpool 2]… the whole story of the movie would be Deadpool trying to steal the big, red chair from The Voice. And they were like: ‘That’s just the dumbest thing ever.’”

That might have made a fun little gag in the film, but to set a whole story around that is kinda ridiculous. Think about it, the success of a billion-dollar film franchise could have rested on a sequel based on a joke about stealing a piece of furniture from a TV show! At the same time, it's Deadpool, so anything is possible! 

I mean, I can see why Deadpool would want the chair. I'm sure he could put it to good use. In the end, I liked the direction that they ended up talking the story. He went on to talk about that little Brad Pitt cameo in the film as The Vanisher, and explains that it was a hard sell:

"He doesn’t speak and he’s invisible. And [Fox] are like, ‘Why Brad Pitt?’ Oh, because you see him, you know, for a quarter of a second… then he unfortunately dies by electrocution."

I'm still surprised that they managed to get Brad Pitt to do that! That was so great! Anyway, what do you think about the initial pitch that Reynolds made for Deadpool 2?

Michael Caine May Have Revealed The True Answer Behind INCEPTION’s Ending

If you're still wondering whether or not the scene at the end of Inception was reality or a dream, Michael Caine might have an answer for you. The actor revealed even he was confused when he first received the script for the film, and didn't know which parts of the film took place in reality and which ones took place in a dream. Caine recently revealed at a London screening for the film (via Syfy Wire) that Christopher Nolan helped him understand things more easily, and told him the scenes he was in were real:

"When I got the script of Inception, I was a bit puzzled by it, and I said to him, 'I don't understand where the dream is. I said, 'When is it the dream and when is it reality?' He said, 'Well, when you're in the scene it's reality.' So, get that -- if I'm in it, it's reality. If I'm not in it, it's a dream."

Well, there's the answer, Inception has a happy ending. That said, Nolan has gone on record to say the ending of the film is meant to be intentionally ambiguous, so if you're someone who really doesn't want this film to have a happy ending, be sure to point that out when someone mentions this quote. 

That said, I've always been curious: were you a fan of Inception's ambiguous ending, or did you feel like you needed an answer for what happened?

If WESTWORLD Season 2 Didn’t Get Confusing Enough For You Wait For The “Radical Shift” in Season 3!

I love HBO's Westworld regardless of how confusing it gets! Westworld Season 1 was a great set up for the series, Season 2 started off pretty amazing, but by the end of it things took some pretty interesting and confusing twists and turns that left a lot of fans scratching their heads. But, just in case things didn't get strange or confusing enough for you, just wait for the "radical shift" coming in Season 3! 

Showrunners and creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy recently talked to THR about what is coming and offers a little tease of the new season they are currently in the process of developing:

"I think it’s a radical shift. What’s compelling and appealing about these characters is that they’re not human. As we said in the show, humans are bound by the same loops the hosts are, in some ways even smaller. You couldn’t expect human characters to withstand and survive the kind of story that we’re telling. The hosts have a different version of mortality, a different outlook. I think clearly with Dolores, as she’s laid out, there is a longer view here, a larger set of goals. They’re existential. They span eons. And that’s a fascinating level of story?to engage in."

While they make this radical shift in the show, I hope that they also start to explain what the hell is going on a little bit better. Hey! Maybe the radical shift is that they won't confuse the audiences anymore! At the same time, I kinda dig the fact that they are moving things in a strange direction that leaves us with more questions than answers... as long as those questions are eventually answered! Thankfully that's the plan. Lisa Joy went on to say:

"We always knew that we were going to do this reveal and let her expand into this new role. We have a very diabolical arc for her planned out. Part of the fun for the character will be self-realization. She will be realizing the things we know about who she is."

I'm curious to see where the story for this show is headed and how the arcs of the characters are going to turn out. What are your thoughts on the second season of Westworld and where do you think it's headed?
