The first reactions to ‘Avengers: Endgame’ are in, and it’s one heck of a finale

TwitterFacebook

Welcome to the end.

The world premiere of Avengers: Endgame took place on Monday evening, with critics and industry peeps getting a look at the much-hyped film before it hits cinemas.

Based on the first reactions on social media, the epic, three-hour long Endgame is a satisfying conclusion to a series which began 21 films ago, with most reviewers leaving positive comments about the film.

As Mashable’s Angie Han and Ali Foreman noted, Endgame is quite the send off.

#AvengerEndgame is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.) ♥️💙💜

“Daredevil” will not be renewed for a fourth season, the latest Marvel series cancelled by Netflix

Despite strong reviews and a fan petition, Netflix said today that it is cancelling “Daredevil” after three seasons. This is the latest Marvel series, after “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist,” that Netflix has cancelled recently, and is a sign that Marvel TV and Netflix’s multi-series agreement, signed in 2013, may be hitting some bumps.

Centered around a blind lawyer-turned-superhero in New York City, played by Charlie Cox, “Daredevil” was the first series released as part of the Marvel -Netflix deal in 2015. This leaves “Jessica Jones” and “The Punisher” as the two remaining Marvel series on Netflix.

Netflix said in a statement sent to Deadline, which first broke the news, that “we are tremendously proud of the show’s last and final season and although it’s painful for the fans, we feel it best to close this chapter on a high note. We are thankful to our partners at Marvel, showrunner Erik Oleson, the show’s writers, stellar crew, and incredible cast including Charlie Cox as Daredevil himself, and we’re grateful to the fans who have supported the show over the years.”

The streaming service added that the three seasons will remain on Netflix for years, while “the Daredevil will live on in future projects for Marvel,” leaving open the possibility that the character might appear in “Jessica Jones” or “The Punisher.” Another possibility is the series moving to Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, expected to launch late next year (the Walt Disney Company owns Marvel Entertainment).

The abrupt cancellations of three Marvel series over the last new months may point to hiccups in the partnership between Netflix and Marvel TV. Potential conflicts between the two include the cost of producing Marvel-Netflix shows, the success of Netflix’s own original content, and disagreements about the length of seasons. The Marvel seasons had 13 episodes each, but newer Netflix shows are only 10 episodes per season.

Marvel wanted Wakandans in ‘Black Panther’ to have British accents

TwitterFacebook

When you’re hearing Wakandans speak in Black Panther, you’re actually hearing the Xhosa accent, which originates from South Africa.

But things could’ve been different if it went Marvel’s way, with the studio apparently wanting a British accent, according to the film’s star Chadwick Boseman.

The film’s dialect coach Beth McGuire told Slate that Xhosa was picked due to the ancestry of South African actor John Kani, who played T’Chaka in the precursor to Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War.

“They felt like it was maybe too much for an audience to take,” Boseman told The Hollywood Reporter’s “Awards Chatter” podcast. Read more…

Dave Bautista might not return to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

TwitterFacebook

The ousting of James Gunn from the third Guardians of the Galaxy film has left Dave Bautista incensed.

In an interview on Saturday, the Hollywood star — who plays Drax — told The Jonathan Ross Show that his future in the third film of the franchise is in doubt.

“It’s a bittersweet conversation. No, it’s a bitter-bitter conversation, because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn,” he said. 

“They’re putting the movie off. It’s on hold indefinitely. And to be honest with you, I don’t know if I want to work for Disney.” Read more…

Disney won’t change its mind on James Gunn and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: report

TwitterFacebook

Entire cast of ‘Thor’ puts on a budget live play for unsuspecting moviegoers

TwitterFacebook

Just for laughs, James Corden stuck the entire star-studded cast of Thor in a cardboard budget, school play version of the hit movie.

The Late Late Show host sprung the surprise on a bunch of (very lucky) unsuspecting moviegoers, interrupting the movie minutes into the beginning. Corden then brought out each member of the cast in their movie roles, starting with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, before introducing Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Mark Ruffalo to the stunned audience.

While it’s incredible to see the Hollywood stars in the very budget version of their movie, it’s even more amazing that they didn’t seem to crack up while acting the whole thing out. Read more…

Marvel's 'Inhumans' hits Comic-Con with a super-sized IMAX trailer

TwitterFacebook

Meet the royal family of Marvel — or Attilan, anyway.

At Comic-Con on Thursday, ABC debuted the new trailer for Inhumans, a new TV show described by Marvel’s Jeph Loeb as being “so big, we could not contain it to television.”

It goes without saying, of course, that watching an IMAX trailer on your laptop or phone won’t do it justice – so if you’d like to get the full effect, keep an eye out for the new Inhumans IMAX trailer in front of Dunkirk this weekend. Read more…
