On Facebook, he delved in even deeper with a longer thank you message to fans. The post’s accompanying photo showed him wearing a medical mask and gloves and throwing up a peace sign. Though he didn’t go into detail, he did hint that he has suffered losses during the pandemic, but he also stressed the importance of both vigilance and optimism and, most importantly, staying connected during these trying times.
For most of Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy, Kylo Ren attempted to emulate and honor the legacy of his grandfather, Darth Vader. He even went as far as to create his own signature helmet, which he would destroy in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. However, the young Sith Lord eventually had it repaired in The Rise of Skywalker. This may have always been the plan for the film but, based on some early concept art, Ren could have received some brand-new headgear.
Less practically, like many of us, E.L. James also not immune to a bit of nostalgia, longing for the days when we could travel the globe and order room service from hotels. Here’s a throwback to when the Fifty Shades movies were coming together at Universal still as well.
Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson)
No surprise here, but Scarlett Johansson is returning as KGB assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and original Avenger Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow. Trained in the art of hand-to-hand combat from a young age in the Red Room, Romanoff is a masterful fighter, spy, and even a pretty badass superhero with experience taking on a variety of enemies — both human and alien.
What’s It About: The 2017 science fiction thriller Life follows a group of astronauts played by Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, and Jake Gyllenhaal, after they discover the first trace of life on Mars. When they bring the found organism onboard the International Space Station, however, things take a turn for the worst as the being begins to evolve and take over the ship.
Now, that would certainly be an interesting way to approach handle the iconic talking dog and his best pal on the big screen, and James Gunn seems open to doing it.

Who Is Directing Thor: Love And Thunder?
In the making of Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi breathed new life into what had been considered by many to be the weakest of the solo Marvel Cinematic Universe series – so it came as a surprise to literally nobody when it was revealed that Marvel Studios wanted him back for Thor 4. In addition to directing, he is also taking care of screenwriting duties, though that is a job that he is splitting with co-writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who came aboard the project in February 2020. While in pre-production on Thor: Love And Thunder, Taika Waititi is also simultaneously busy directing his seventh feature film, Next Goal Wins, which is a sports comedy based on the 2014 British documentary of the same name.
If you’ve spent any amount of time on Instagram lately, you know there’s a ton of challenges being passed around to keep us entertained, as we remain separately bored in our own homes. The MCU’s very own Spider-Man, Tom Holland got on the challenge train this week with one that involves him trying to put on his shirt while doing a handstand, and he invited along fellow Marvel stars. Check it out:
The latest development in the legal battle involves an alleged affair Johnny Depp claims Amber Heard had with tech mogul Elon Musk while they were still married. Heard and Musk have confirmed to have been in a relationship shortly after The Rum Diary co-stars called it quits in 2016, but Depp has gathered information that points to the two possibly being together before that.
When Ben, along with Reed Richards, Susan Storm, and Johnny Storm, was exposed to cosmic radiation aboard a ship during an interstellar flight, the accident turned his skin into a bright, orange mineral substance, along with an upgrade in strength, durability, and agelessness. For The Thing’s MCU debut, I would recommend reverting back to the method used by Michael Chiklis in the 2005 and 2007 films, meaning Zac Efron would have to get to use to a LOT of makeup and prosthetics. But, hey, whatever it takes to get into character, right?
