What’s Kang’s Role in ‘Ant-Man 3’?

The following post contains SPOILERS for the season finale of Loki. Shooting on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has officially begun. And if you weren’t excited before, you have to be now that the film will clearly involve Jonathan Majors’ Kang, who was introduced in the final episode of Loki.

Michael B. Jordan Developing Black Superman Series For HBO Max

Those clamoring for Michael B. Jordan to play DC Comics’ Superman may get their wish — though not quite as they expected. Jordan’s name initially emerged as a very qualified candidate to star in the Superman feature film that’s currently being developed by producer J.J. Abrams and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. Although no details about the film have been officially announced, it’s been reported that the film will focus on a Black version of the iconic DC hero. But when asked about whether he’d be interested in playing the role in whatever film emerges from Coates’ script, Jordan said he was “flattered” to be considered, but that he would be “just watching on this one.”

‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’: All the Trailers’ Coolest Easter Eggs

The first Venom movie was not exactly faithful to Marvel Comics. Marvel’s Venom gets his symbiote from Spider-Man — it’s originally a living costume Peter Parker finds on an alien world. After the two have a falling out, the rejected costume bonds with Eddie Brock — a disgraced reporter with a grudge against Spider-Man — and the two swear revenge against Peter. Since Peter and Spidey couldn’t appear in Venom, the film had to invent a totally new origin for the character, with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) now a muckraking journalist who accidentally bonds with an alien “symbiote” that’s been recovered by a space expedition.

Gal Gadot Says Joss Whedon ‘Threatened’ Her Career on ‘Justice League’ Set

By all accounts, the atmosphere on the set of Justice League was not great after Zack Snyder left the project. Joss Whedon took over the role of directing for the film’s extensive reshoots, and clearly failed to make a connection with most of Snyder’s cast. Actor Ray Fisher has been the most vocal about what he’s described as mistreatment by Whedon, but others reportedly had issues with him as well — including some of the film’s biggest stars.
