The Final Trailer for ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Features… A Lot of Stuff

The Final Trailer for ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Features… A Lot of Stuff

The Hawkins gang will return very soon and they’re bringing
new monsters from the Upside Down with them. It seems like it’s been ages since
the last season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, but luckily the wait is
almost over. Season three was announced ages ago, but as with any highly
anticipated project, it took some time until fans were given hints at what is
to come.

Having said that, the final trailer for the upcoming season was
recently released. It’s giving every fan a heart attack and a new reason to
skip Independence Day festivities and just binge the whole season on July 4th
instead.

The final trailer shows us (a little) how the shadow monster
is reacting to Eleven “closing the gate” in the season two finale, as well as
some of the new Demogorgon-esque creatures that Hopper, Nancy, Steve, Joyce,
Jonathan and the kids will eventually meet.

The only wild card is Billy, who seems to be painted as a full-on antagonist in the next season, at least according to this spot. That’s not to say that we should assume that the implications of the trailer are accurate, but having someone instead of Will Byers get possessed by the creatures will be a nice break for poor Will after the last two seasons.

In addition to this wild trailer, Netflix released a synopsis to further help us make sense of all the explosive new footage:

“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”

The stakes are getting higher for the Stranger Things gang.
Netflix’s hit show has some pretty high expectations after record streaming
numbers, a wealth of nominations and a handful of awards since its premiere in
2016. Will the third season measure up? It’s still too soon to know for sure,
but without further ado, here is the final trailer for Stranger Things
season three:

Stranger Things returns to Netflix July 4th
with three times the, well… stranger things.

Captain Marvel’s Creative Team Knew Right Away How Nick Fury Would Lose His Eye

 

It was inevitable.

There’s always a lot of excitement surrounding a movie prequel and the ways it might answer questions that fans have about a series. Going into Captain Marvel one of the biggest questions fans were expecting to get an answer to surrounded how Nick Fury lost his eye. The film eventually gave us the answer, though not in the way many were likely expecting. Although, it seems that, for the most part, what happened was a foregone conclusion.

Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Zendaya Explains How Thanos’ Snap Changed MJ

 

The character might not be the same.

Warning: Avengers: Endgame SPOILERS to follow!

When Thanos snapped half of the universe out of existence in Avengers: Infinity War, not only was Peter Parker among the fallen, but so too were some of his classmates, including Zendaya’s Michelle “MJ” Jones. Thanks to the efforts of the surviving heroes, the fallen were all brought back in Avengers: Endgame, albeit 5 years after they first disappeared. That sets up an interesting dynamic to be explored in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Zendaya explained how the Snap and coming back changed MJ, saying:

Obscure Stan Lee Characters from A-Z: The Dazzling D’s!

Obscure Stan Lee Characters from A-Z: The Dazzling D’s!

It’s trivia time! How many of the below characters did Stan co-create?

A. Darkoth

B. Dorma

C. The Destroyer

D. Devil Dinosaur

The answer is only one, and that would be…

C. The Destroyer

The Destroyer earns extra recognition as one of the very first characters Stan helped bring to life, way back in the pages of Mystic Comics #6 from October 1941. Both Jack Binder (penciler-inker) and Alex Schomburg (cover artist) contributed art, though the exact co-creator credit is unclear.

There’s one more thing that sets this hero apart from other Stan characters: Though the Destroyer (real identity: journalist Kevin “Keen” Marlow) was an American, his stories didn’t take place in New York City or even the United States for that matter—all his action occurred in occupied Europe during WWII. Captured by the Germans for ‘spying,’ aka reporting behind enemy lines, he was placed in a concentration camp where he was injected with a super solider serum by fellow detainee Eric Schmitt, a German anti-Nazi scientist. (That serum, by the way, was similar to the one Captain America received.) Imbued with a top-notch physique, the Destroyer escaped, fashioned himself a superhero costume, and proceeded to fight the Nazis on their own turf.

Heroes like Captain America, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and the Human Torch reigned in popularity during the war years, but the Destroyer wasn’t very far behind. In fact, he popped up in almost all of Timely’s (Marvel’s precursor) superhero titles published in the 1940s – that’s how admired he was by fans back then.

Curious about the other characters?

Darkoth was created by writer Gerry Conway and artist Rich Buckler, appearing in Fantastic Four #142 in January 1974.

Dorma and Namor

Dorma was another early creation, brought to life by Bill Everett in the October 1939 issue of Marvel Comics #1.

And finally, Devil Dinosaur (what a character!) was dreamt up and put to paper, both writing and art, by the legendary Jack Kirby, debuting in his own title, Devil Dinosaur #1, in April 1978.

Every couple of weeks, we’ll spotlight some of Stan’s
most obscure co-creations through trivia, starting with A and ending with Z!
Stay tuned for ‘E,’ coming soon!

Press Tour for ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ Heats Up with New Posters, Videos and More

Press Tour for ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ Heats Up with New Posters, Videos and More

We are less than two weeks away from the film finale of the third phase of the MCU, Spider-Man: Far from Home. Excitement has been steadily brewing since Avengers: Endgame released, and over the last month, the star-studded cast has journeyed around the world to promote the film.

The press tour will culminate this week with the world premiere in Hollywood. The lead-up to that event has produced plenty of new material to keep fans guessing about what is to come in the fifth MCU film featuring Tom Holland as Spider-Man.

While some fans may not have been impressed by the American IMAX posters, a new set of Chinese posters shows the variety of suits that will be on display in the movie, including the stealth suit, which has only briefly been spotted in the trailers. Along with the series of suit-focused posters, there’s also one featuring the newest MCU team-up: Spider-Man and Mysterio. Mysterio’s nature may be sinister, but currently he is being marketed as a new ally to the heroes of the MCU. Check out the new Chinese images below:

Sony also released a few new stills that highlight the film’s
supporting characters, from Happy Hogan to Nick Fury to MJ and more. These images
show that Peter Parker isn’t the only character in the movie with problems to
overcome. Although the stills don’t reveal what the characters might be upset
about, we can tell that this vacation isn’t going to be relaxing for anyone.

You can see the full set of 15 pictures HERE. Check out a few highlights below:

The cast members have been doing their part to promote the movie in fun and unconventional ways, especially Tom Holland, who has been giving non-stop interviews. On two occasions, he had the help of some of his friends, fellow Avenger Chris Hemsworth and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

In a cross promotional video Holland posted on his Instagram account, he and Hemsworth discuss their own movies and each other’s, since Hemsworth’s Men in Black: International just debuted. The video may not give us many clues about Spider-Man’s future, but it’s very funny.

In a Jimmy Kimmel Live! skit, Kimmel posed as every New York superhero’s favorite laundry man while Holland donned his American accent once again as Peter Parker. Kimmel’s laundry man is blissfully unaware what all these masks he washes mean and it’s up to Spider-Man to keep his identity secret no matter how funny the skit may get. Fellow masked crime-fighters Deadpool and Daredevil are referenced as Jimmy and Tom banter about the various super suits. No, unfortunately this isn’t a clue that the three characters will team up any time soon. Still, check out the humorous clip below:

Finally, an international trailer from China has been released with a wealth of never-before-aired scenes. Between Nick Fury’s role as a superhero wrangler (once again) and Parker actually calling Mysterio an Avenger (*GASP!*), the international trailer definitely shows us a little more regarding the dynamic between the characters new and old. It also shows several new scenes featuring the Elementals. Check it out below:
