Tilda Swinton Explains Why Her Avengers: Endgame Scene Had To Be Reshot

Following her death in Doctor Strange, the Ancient One returned in an all-important cameo in Avengers: Endgame. When the heroes travel back to New York in 2012, Hulk goes to convince the Sorcerer Supreme to hand over the Time Stone. The pair have a lengthy conversation about the disastrous consequences it could have to the timeline if the Infinity Stones were removed permanently, which leads to Hulk agreeing to return them all to their proper places when the Avengers have used them to reverse Thanos’ snap.

The way the sequence plays out in the movie, though, wasn’t always the case, as Tilda Swinton has revealed that her Endgame scene was completely reshot a year after she initially filmed it. The actress was talking to IndieWire when she mentioned how it’d been a surprise to get the call to return. Though the bigger surprise was when she got asked to redo her cameo.

Brightburn Review: James Gunn's Anti-Superman Movie Is Horrifying

Brightburn Review: James Gunn's Anti-Superman Movie Is Horrifying
Superhero movies have been gaining popularity ever since the first X-Men movie debuted in theaters nearly two decades ago. In the years since, they've become massive pop culture events and it's to the point where my mom now understands what I'm talking about if I say things like Doctor Strange, which is crazy. But after nearly two decades, and with the release of movies like Avengers: Endgame, we're at a point where these movies can't just simply continue to get bigger. So, instead, it's time for reinvention. Enter BrightBurn, which turns something strongly resembling the familiar Superman origin story into a straight-up horror movie. And it works.

Brightburn works with a very simple premise. A married couple who is having trouble conceiving a child through traditional means has their prayers answered one fateful night when a strange alien ship crashes in on their farm. Inside the ship, they find a

Support Flickering Myth: Order via Sideshow Collectibles

Doctor Strange is the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe, created by Stan Lee along with Steve Ditko in 1963.

Stephen Strange was a brilliant neurosurgeon, but his arrogant, selfish and greedy persona made him unpopular. When he suffered a car accident that damaged the nerves of his hands preventing him from work as a medical surgeon, he exhausted his fortune in trying to heal himself. With his last resources, he went to the East in search of an old wizard called “the Elder” and ended up becoming his apprentice in the mystical arts.

Everything We Know So Far About Sherlock Season 5

If one thing is for certain, it’s that the fate and future of BBC’s Sherlock are messy, to say the least. When it first debuted, the series – which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman – received critical acclaim for its clever writing, visual design, and strong direction, all held together by creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, both of whom are best known for their work on Doctor Who.

Unfortunately, despite a massive fanbase and worldwide popularity, the series began to stumble. While the first three seasons were well received by critics and fans alike, the fourth (which aired in early 2017) didn’t enjoy the same success, thanks in part to a finale that many argue was convoluted, contrived, and poorly written.

Marvel Reveals Acts of Evil

Gavin Jasper May 20, 2019

Marvel presses the randomize button to give us some fresh hero vs. villain matches.

Marvel is at a spot right now where they’re just kind of rehashing old event stories with a new coat of paint. Considering how much money they made altering the story of Infinity Gauntlet into two feature films, I don’t know if I can blame them. In the past few years, they did new takes on Secret Wars, Civil War, and even Amalgam. Next up is dusting off Acts of Vengeance and rebranding it as Acts of Evil.

Acts of Vengeance was an event from the early '90s with a simple and incredibly fun concept: a bunch of villains got together and decided to trade targets in order to hit the heroes off-guard. Spider-Man fights Graviton, Punisher fights Dr. Doom, Thor fights Juggernaut, etc. It was mainly remembered for Spider-Man

The Original Ant-Man And Wasp Almost Appeared In Avengers: Endgame’s Final Battle

The grand finale battle of Avengers: Endgame brings together each and every hero from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Avengers, the Guardians, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange…even Howard the Duck. There are two notable exceptions, though: Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, the original Ant-Man and the Wasp. Sure, the duo are retired, but they still have their superhero suits from the old days. So why didn’t they lend a hand when the fate of the universe hung in the balance?

In a feature on what was cut from the battle, The Guardian reports that writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely originally thought about including Pym and Van Dyne but ultimately elected to remove them from the third act. It was thought that there were just too – or, specifically, two – many costumed characters to keep track of if they were on board.

Five Things Tilda Swinton Loves About Cannes

Five Things Tilda Swinton Loves About Cannes
The first time Tilda Swinton went to Cannes, it was for a film she hated. It was “Aria” in 1989, an omnibus title with contributions from Robert Altman, Jean-Luc Godard, Bruce Beresford, Nic Roeg, Charles Sturridge, Franc Roddam, and Derek Jarman. “We all got on like a house on fire,” she said. “A lot of people were drawn to libations in the crew. We all saw the film at the end, we all hated the film, and were friends for life.”

Since then, she’s attended to serve on two juries, and for eight films: Jim Jarmusch’s “Broken Flowers” and “Only Lovers Left Alive,” Béla Tarr’s “The Man From London,” David Mackenzie’s “Young Adam,” Lynne Ramsay’s “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” Bong Joon Ho’s “Okja,” and Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom.” This year, she returns with Jarmusch’s opening-night zombie comedy, “The Dead Don’t Die.

Doctor Strange 2 Rumored To Be With Us In November 2021

For a studio that used to announce years’ worth of upcoming movies at their own Apple-like event, Marvel’s been keeping pretty tight-lipped on their future phase of films. Sure, we know a little bit about what’s to come, like The Eternals and Shang-Chi are both set to make their big screen debuts, and a Black Widow standalone pic is in development, too, but we’ve barely heard a word about follow-ups to their past solo successes like Black Panther and Doctor Strange. Now that Endgame has had its time in the sun though, we expect that to change very quickly.

In fact, if new rumors are to be believed, Doctor Strange 2, which is deep into development at Marvel with director Scott Derrickson and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill attached, may be with us on November 5th, 2021. This comes from an unverified leak – the same one which shared

Ant-Man 3 Rumored To Crawl Into Theaters In July 2022

Amidst all the news, speculation and debate about the future of the McU, it’s not often we hear the Ant-Man series get a whole lot of mentions, which is actually a bit surprising when you consider the unusual place that the property currently holds in the Marvel franchise.

True, Scott Lang isn’t one of the Phase 1 heroes like Iron Man or Captain America, but he also isn’t among the more recent additions like Black Panther, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, whose first sequels are still to come. And while the character’s solo outings usually don’t generate as much excitement as some of the McU’s other entries, most fans would still be upset if Lang’s journey came to a close with Avengers: Endgame.

Thankfully, that doesn’t seem to be the case, as a new rumor’s emerged this week which says Ant-Man 3 will crawl into theaters on July 29th,

Yes, Howard the Duck Is in Avengers: Endgame and This Is How It Happened
Avengers: Endgame features a ton of heroes and Howard the Duck is present on the battle field. Not many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans noticed the little guy, he's only in 18 frames, but he shows up during the epic battle scene to help take down Thanos and his army when all of the Decimated characters make their way back through the use of Doctor Strange's golden portals. Howard first made his McU debut in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie and fans have been waiting to see more of him.

Weta Digital did a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of digital effects towards the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame and visual effects supervisor Matt Aitken led the way. Aitken was pretty happy to see Howard the Duck make the cut, and so were a lot of McU fans who happened to notice him. However, that doesn't mean it was an easy task.

Did Kevin Feige Accidentally Reveal The McU’s Next Big Villain?

Now that Avengers: Endgame is slowly vanishing beyond the horizon, Marvel fans are desperate to know what the future has in store. After the deaths of a few key players (not to mention one power-hungry villain), things are going to look very different moving forward.

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob
The internet went into a predictable frenzy after news broke May 16 that Robert Pattinson had emerged as the leading contender to take over the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in a new superhero tentpole from Matt Reeves. While the casting has not been made official by Warner Bros., Variety reports the hiring is all but confirmed as Pattinson “is the top choice and the deal is expected to close shortly.” Reeves’ Batman movie is going into pre-production this summer.

Pattinson’s casting sparked some backlash online from Batman lovers and fans of the DC Extended Universe who don’t think casting the “heartthrob from the ‘Twilight’ movies” is a smart idea for one of the most beloved comic book characters. Pattinson would join actors such as Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck in playing the Caped Crusader on the big screen. While some fans complained about the casting, many

10 McU Rematches We'll Never Get To See After Endgame

Avengers: Infinity War promised to be the culmination of every McU movie that preceded it, and in many ways, it was. It brought all the characters together in the same movie at last – the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, Black Panther etc. – but we wouldn’t get the true culmination until a year later in Avengers: Endgame.
