Jennifer Lawrence Says She’ll Only Return For More X-MEN Movies If Her Co-Stars Do

X-Men: Apocalypse is the third movie that features actress Jennifer Lawrence playing Mystique, a lower-tier X-Men character who, frankly, has always felt a little out of place anywhere near the center of this film franchise. Much has been made about whether or not Lawrence will come back for more X-adventures, with the actress herself leaning back and forth on the matter.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, she details the only way she’ll actually come back to play Mystique in another movie:

“Fassbender and McAvoy and I were all talking. Like, ‘Will you come back?’ ‘I dunno.’ ‘I’ll come back, if you come back.’ Fox should be terrified because the deal we made was like if one of us doesn’t come back, none of us are…I would love to come back. I love the fans and I love the character. But then you realize how important your year is, like how important three months out of your year is. I don’t know. I shouldn’t be that honest.”

When Lawrence first signed on to this franchise, she wasn’t nearly the mega-star she is now, so I wouldn’t blame her if she decided that she didn’t need these movies and stepped away for good. It sounds like she absolutely hates the extensive makeup process (“You go in and you realize you’re rock bottom and like this sucks and it could not suck more”), and while that statement may be a tad dramatic, I understand where she’s coming from.

Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban Join THOR: RAGNAROK, Plus A Piece of Concept Art

Not long ago, a story made the rounds about how Jurassic Park and Independence Day star Jeff Goldblum may join a superhero movie, and now we know what all that was about. Marvel has just announced that Goldblum and Star Trek star Karl Urban have joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, and the site confirms the addition of the previously-reported Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, and Mark Ruffalo.

Goldblum will play “the eccentric Grandmaster,” Urban “will add his might to the fray as Skurge,” Thompson “will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen,” and Blanchett is confirmed to be playing “the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela.” That’s a lot to digest, so let’s break it down piece by piece:

The Grandmaster is a virtually immortal being, one of the oldest in the universe. From Marvel’s wiki:

The Grandmaster has spent his extraordinary long life in pursuit of amusement through the playing of games. He has traveled throughout the known universe studying many civilizations’ forms of games and play to the point of mastering them. He then began to devise his own types of tournaments and contests, challenging various opponents to games of skill and chance for high stakes.

Those games typically include combat, so it wouldn’t surprise me if The Grandmaster is the one pulling the strings (SPOILER ALERT) on the gladiatorial planet on which Thor finds The Hulk.

Valkyrie seems too complicated to quickly sum up here, so check out her wiki page if you’re interested. Suffice it to say, I’m stoked that Thompson will be playing this character.

Skurge is one of Asgard’s greatest warriors, and an executioner who, in the comics, is sent to kill Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster. Read more about him here.

Kevin Feige had this to say:

“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”

Here’s a piece of concept art from the movie:

I think the Thor movies are the weakest part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, but this casting makes me very excited about the idea of watching Thor: Ragnarok (a feat I didn’t think was possible). Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.

Video: Alexandra Shipp Talks Becoming Storm and One of Apocalypse’s Minions

I’m not sure how everyone else feels about it, but from what I’ve seen so far, Alexandra Shipp is a better Storm than Halle Berry. I really like the look a lot more, and after hearing this IGN interview, she sounds like she understands the character! I know reviews of X-Men: Apocalypse have been less than stellar, but I’m hoping her performance is an exception! I would love to see her in a ’90s-set X-Men adaptation!

Hear about how Shipp understood Storm and how she appears in the film below. I also included a clip from the film featuring a pissed off Magneto and a retro 1980’s Xavier’s School recruitment video. 

Michael Keaton Once Again Attached To Play The Villain in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Not long ago, Michael Keaton was offered the role of a villain in Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but nothing ended up happening and both parties moved on. But now Keaton is actually in legitimate discussions to suit up as a Spidey baddie, and this time THR reports that he’s in final negotiations. It looks like this is going to happen after all.

Official details about the movie are being kept under wraps, but the villain is rumored to be The Vulture, aka Adrian Toomes. Keaton seems like a great fit for that character, so my fingers are crossed he’ll be rocking a green wingsuit in this movie. (The actor has poked fun at his past iconic superhero role before, so don’t be surprised if there’s a meta joke or two about that in the script.)

Supposed plot details leaked online yesterday, but there’s no way to validate them at this stage, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re fabricated. Either way, I’m glad Keaton is going to be a part of this movie after all, joining Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Laura Harrier, Zendaya, and Tony RevoloriSpider-Man: Homecoming arrives in theaters on July 7, 2017.

Stephen Amell Teases Season 5 Villain For ARROW

Stephen Amell isn’t saying much about the season 5 villain for Arrow, but he is saying a little. The actor told Variety the following when asked about the major villain for season 5:

“I’ve heard that our big bad, our villain, is something that you can really only do once you’re in the fifth, sixth or seventh season of a TV show…As far as I know, they don’t have superpowers. I’ll tell you that.”

Well, that’s refreshing at least. I feel like Arrow took a dive when they got too power-heavy. It’ll be nice to see them return to the action that made the first two seasons great!

I feel like we heard whispers that we would be learning about Oliver’s Bratva connection for next season, but I assumed that was to take place primarily in flashbacks. What enemies could Oliver Queen have that don’t have “powers”? I’m stumped on this one — anybody have any ideas? Maybe Slade is back!

Michael Fassbender Strikes Iconic Pose in New ASSASSIN’S CREED Movie Poster

On the heels of a trailer for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie, 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new official poster for the film featuring Michael Fassbender striking an iconic pose as the character Callum Lynch.

Fassbender is teaming up with Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) again to bring one of the most popular game series to the big screen. Also joining the line-up are Jeremy Irons (The Man in The Iron Mask, Batman v Superman), Marion Cotillard (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises), and Michael K. Williams (12 Years a Slave, The Wire).

While based on the game series, the director has announced some surprising aspects of the film: There will be no characters from the previous games, it will be its own installment with little nods to past installments; and roughly only 35% of the movie will take place in the past. The latter is an astonishing reversal of the tried and true Assassin’s Creed formula, with the majority of the games taking place in the past.

Set in the near-future and the Spanish inquisition, we see Fassbender take on the role of Callum Lynch in the efforts to change the past and take down the Knights Templar. Callum’s ancestor in the Spanish Inquisition is Aguilar, who Lynch must control in order to maintain order in the past.

I am excited for this movie and I have hope this could be the first great video game adaptation! If you haven’t, go check out Macbeth by the same director, which also stars Fassbender and Cotillard. It was a great film and filled me with hope for a movie I wasn’t originally excited for. I included that trailer for you to watch below. What do you guys think of the poster, and the trailer for the film? 

Assassin’s Creed hits theaters on December 21, 2016.

Cast of BOB’S BURGERS Celebrates Live Show With Wacky Video

Through the help of cons and YouTube videos, voice actors are more prominent now than they ever were before. It’s even allowed the cast of Bob’s Burgers to put on successful live shows for their fans in L.A.! No word on whether there will be more shows, but we do have this video to watch!

Ultimately the whole thing is to remind you the show will be celebrating its 100th episode this Sunday on Fox. I can’t believe there have been that many already! It’s a great show!

Video: Automatic Door Screams Like R2-D2

That door looks a little too new to be making this noise! Not like I’m a door expert or anything, but you would think it would be a bit more quiet. This door sounds almost exactly like R2-D2 when he’s stressed out. That’s an awesome feature if that store is a comic shop, but pretty annoying anywhere else. Check it out below! For more like this, watch the video of a Coke can that sounds exactly like Chewbacca.
