Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is hard at work for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and is clearly excited about the return of Black Manta and he’s showing it by revealing how he is preparing in the early stages of production. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is lounging, reading a giant script while talking on the phone, presumably about Aquaman 2, which is the ideal way to work from home. The caption is simply “Aquaman” with a peace sign which probably is indicating production is about to start ramping up.
DC fans can re-watch the original Aquaman on HBO Max. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
The Significance Of ‘96’ Referenced In The Musical
Numbers are also important to In The Heights in regards to “96.” Obviously the song “96,000” is major to the film as it references the amount of money up for the lottery, but it’s not the only time the number is in the musical. In the opening number “In The Heights,” a woman says she’s “never been north of 96th street,” as well, which Lin-Manuel Miranda believes is an economic dividing line between him and the richer part of NYC, per NYC Go.
Sometimes, a character’s death scene is not the last time they get played on screen by an actor. Take, for example, Scarlett Johansson, whose Marvel heroine Black Widow sacrificed herself to stop Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, only to “return” to the screen in a prequel film/story, which is arriving on July 9. Black Widow takes place after Captain America: Civil War on the MCU timeline, but it might end up being Johansson’s final time in the role. With that in mind, when we spoke with Black Widow director Cate Shortland, we asked her if Johansson’s last day of filming on set was unusually emotional, and the director told us:
Of all the franchise series coming to Disney+, few are quite as exciting as Obi-Wan. The series will see the return of Ewan McGregor as the titular Jedi in a story set between trilogies. However, McGregor won’t be alone, as it has been confirmed that Hayden Christensen will be back in the role of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Unfortunately, one character that many Star Wars fans wanted to see that won’t be appearing is a Force Ghost Qui-Gon Jinn, as Liam Neeson has confirmed he won’t be part of the new show.
Upon hearing Chris Pratt’s compliment, the Oscar winner took his words in stride. He joked to Variety that he wanted to follow in Pratt’s footsteps by hitting the gym hard. J.K. Simmons mentioned he just added more weight to his workout. Simmons hilariously replied, “If nothing else comes from this movie, I’m happy.”
Their breakup, then, sounds more like the natural result of an intense pressure cooker. Hopefully, history doesn’t repeat in quite the same way.
Fans are definitely excited to see the two tried and true star powers link up again. Supposedly, Affleck’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner has given her approval, and even Jennifer Lopez’s mom has been spotted on the set of Affleck’s next project, according to Page Six. So it would be a shame to see it fizzle out again due to the collective cultural excitement.
While Laurence Fisburne is seemingly not involved, there are a number of returning faces appearing in The Matrix 4. Aside from Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, the upcoming movie will also include Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, and Daniel Bernhardt reprising their roles from the original Matrix trilogy. Lana Wachowski found some stellar actors to help flesh out the cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Hamilton’s Jonathan Groff, Cristina Ricci, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Priyanka Chopra. Plus a number of cast members from Sense8 will appear as well.
Kevin Hart honestly seemed like an unusual choice to play a soldier in the Borderlands movie. While the video game the movie is based on has a lot of humor, and Hart made sense in that way, he probably wasn’t seen by many as “soldier” material. In the games, the character of Roland isn’t the funniest person you come across. And yet, this shows that if you put the work in, anybody can get to that point physically. And he does look every part the character of Roland.
While the details of the Flash movie are being kept under wraps, director Andy Muschietti and team are seemingly enjoying teasing the fandom as production finally begins. In addition to the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as Batman, the mysterious solo movie starring Ezra Miller will also somehow bring Supergirl into the DCEU. Check out the tease from Muschietti himself below, courtesy of his personal Instagram account.
A new image from the film shows off Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet, and their castmates Rebecca Ferguson and Javier Bardem. Every teaser and image released for the movie adds a new wrinkle into what we know about the upcoming film and, above all else, just adds more hype for the highly anticipated blockbuster.
