For Kevin Feige, though, that moment (and the footage) means something else. To him, it’s a reminder of the communal experience of enjoying a movie together, like so many of us did for Avengers: Endgame, but haven’t in a long while thanks to the theaters being shutdown. Feige told CinemaBlend:
Disneyland is still closed and we have no idea when the park will reopen, but that hasn’t stopped Disneyland Resort from making massive changes to the way the park functions. Disneyland has announced that the incredibly popular Annual Passport program is ending, and while it will be replaced by something down the road, there’s no information on what that will be or when we will see it. However, when the park reopens, whenever that happens, it will do so without most, if not all, of the people who had annual passes.
Kitbag will see Joaquin Phoenix playing Napoleon Bonaparte, the French statesman and military leader who ruled as Emperor of France primarily from 1804 to 1815. The movie’s title originates from the phrase “There is a general’s staff hidden in every soldier’s kitbag,” and David Scarpa, who wrote Ridley Scott’s 2017 movie All the Money in the World, is penning the screenplay. Kitbag will explore Napoleon’s origins and rise to power, with the story having previously been described as being filtered through the “the prism of his addictive and often volatile relationship” with his wife Josephine.
Does Captain America Have Kids? Let’s Find Out!
Sticking with Captain America’s extended relationship with Peggy Carter for a moment, it would also be nice to know if Steve Rogers has any progeny in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there are multiple photos of Peggy with young children next to her bedside, and while it’s possible that these are just nieces and nephews (like Sharon Carter, for instance), it makes us wonder if Steve and Peggy possibly started a family with all of the extra time given to them. If there are children, they would be full-grown adults in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would be amazing if audiences had the chance to meet them, and it would be fascinating to discover if they were passed down any gifts as a result of the Super Soldier Serum running through their fathers’ veins.
While certainly those of us in the U.S. were already going to have a tough time making it to Japan as it was, with so many other new theme park lands and attractions being postponed due to the pandemic, fans were excited to see Super Nintendo World opening, even if many weren’t actually going to be able to experience it at first. Disneyland’s Avengers Campus was supposed to open last summer, but the theme park closure struck only a couple days after the grand opening date was announced. The word is Disneyland is hoping to open the land sometime this year, but getting the park open at all is certainly the top priority.
Not much is known about the contents of Scream 5, but there’s been a ton of chatter online about the horror franchise’s return to the big screen. Once it was confirmed that original stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette were reprising their roles for another slasher, fans started getting on board for the first movie since Wes Craven’s death. What’s more, the pair of directors won of Campbell over by just how much they planned to honor Craven’s legacy with their sequel.
The trouble for Armie Hammer began when it was reported that an anonymous Instagram account called House of Effie released a series of direct messages supposedly from the actor. These messages allegedly from the actor (it still hasn’t been confirmed if they originated from Hammer) involved requesting graphic and violent sexual activity, including hints of cannibalism. The Instagram user followed up their allegations by posting past clips and posts from the actor. The account has continued to release messages since the first posting on January 10.
If anything, it’s a bittersweet record considering the fact that, while China is certainly a major box office location, if the movie is doing better than average there, the movie likely would have done really well at the domestic box office as well. Considering the popular buzz surrounding Soul, it seems that this would have been a major hit, and while many people may have subscribed to Disney+ in order to watch Soul, it’s probably not in the same numbers that people would have gone to the theater, were that a safe option at this time.
Not much is known about The Batman, but Matt Reeves set his solo flick early in the title character’s career as a vigilante. It looks like the trio of villains will rise as a result of his efforts to keep Gotham City safe, chief among them being Riddler. Fans are also eager to see Colin Farrell’s Penguin, as the actor is wearing extensive prothesis to transform into the character.
Ray Fisher clarifies in his statement that those reports were a “misconception,” though, and that Cyborg was meant to have “a much larger role than a cameo.” This makes sense, for various reasons. Cyborg plays an important part in the “Flashpoint” comic-book storyline, and reports on the chemistry between Fisher and Ezra Miller during the filming of Zack Snyder’s Justice League were strong. There were rumors regarding pairing the young actors together in a film back in 2016-17, so I think many fans just assumed, for years, that Victor Stone had a part in The Flash.
