New Mutants Star Talks Frustrating Delay & Adding That New Character

When 20th Century Fox delayed the release date for New Mutants in January, pushing it nearly a year from April 13, 2018 to February 22, 2019, it wasn’t terribly surprising as these things happen all the time. What was surprising was a report that surfaced in late February, which revealed that director Josh Boone is adding a new character to the movie, and while the identity of that character has yet to be announced, Anya Taylor-Joy did confirm this new character will be present. Here’s what she had to say in a recent interview, defending the reshoots that have yet to take place.

“I do think that there is a great responsibility to make sure the movie is done right and that we deliver the fans something that they can all feel happy about and excited about. So, I don’t think it being delayed is a bad thing because it’s definitely more important to make sure that we get it right than rushing to make a date. So, hopefully, all of these reshoots and adding of the new character that will give the fans an altogether satisfactory, wonderful product.”

New Mutants was initially slated to be the first of three X-Men movies arriving this year, with its original date slated for April 13, followed by Deadpool 2 on June 1 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2. While Dark Phoenix is keeping its original date, The New Mutants was shuffled off to next year, while Deadpool was moved up to May 18 arriving a week before LucasFilm’s Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25, instead of a week after it. While the actress defended the need for reshoots, to make the movie as good as possible, she wasn’t happy about the release date delay. Here’s what she had to say below.

“Well, the only thing that I could say, without being in trouble, is that it being delayed is disappointing, frustrating in fact. Because we were all very excited for it to be released on April 13th, and I don’t mean just disappointing for me, but I’m sure there are a lot of other fans that were looking forward to seeing it.”

The reshoots in question are reportedly set to take place this summer, but there is no indication as to how extensive they may be. Anya Taylor-Joy plays the pivotal mutant Magik, who is one of five young mutants who are being held against their will in a secret facility, while they are just beginning to discover their powers. The other mutants featured in this movie, which is said to be a terrifying horror movie that pushes the boundaries of the PG-13 ratings, are Wolfsbane (Maisie Williams), Cannonball (Charlie Heaton), Sunspot (Henry Zaga) and Mirage (Blu Hunt), with the supporting cast rounded out by Alice Braga as Cecilia Reyes and Happy Anderson as Reverend Craig. Anya Taylor-Joy revealed these new details in an interview with The Playlist.


Black Panther Shirts Pay Tribute to Black Sabbath and Pantera

Black Panther shirts found at certain retailers are paying homage to some legendary heavy metal bands. Target is selling a Black Panther shirt that represents a take on a classic Black Sabbath logo, while JCPenney is currently offering a shirt that pays tribute to Pantera. The lines between homage and rip-off may be a bit blurry, but either way, Black Panther fans who also happen to like heavy metal may be in luck, if you’re looking for an item of clothing that represents both of those interests at the same time.

Starting with the Target shirt, it’s a take on one of the classic Black Sabbath logos, which features the band’s name in white lettering on the side and across the top. However, instead of having some heavy metal imagery underneath and beside the lettering, this Black Panther shirt swaps in King T’Challa in his 1970s Marvel Comics glory. And, naturally, Black Sabbath has been changed to Black Panther. If you’re interested in picking the shirt up, it’s priced at a pretty reasonable $12.99.

Moving on to the Pantera shirt, this one can be found at JCPenney. The shirt features the hero’s head underneath an orange and yellow Black Panther logo. The phrase “King of Wakanda” is written on the bottom. The lettering on top is clearly influenced by the font that has been used for the Pantera logo for years. Fans of Marvel Comics may not recognize this initially, but metal fans will surely be quick to notice. Whether or not whoever licensed these shirts was actually trying to pay a respectful homage, with proper permission, is where this may wander into a bit of a grey area.

It’s one thing if these shirts are properly paying credit in some way to both Pantera and Black Sabbath, but it’s another entirely if these designs were done without paying any mind to the metal artists that are influencing the clothing. Disney, who owns Marvel, recently came under fire for allegedly stealing the design for the Solo: A Star Wars Story posters from the artwork on a series of albums. Is this another similar situation? If so, are the retails to blame? Is Disney to blame? For now, there’s no answer to that. But there’s also been no accusation of wrongdoing. At the moment, these are just some cool Black Panther shirts that metal music fans are sure to appreciate.

While Black Panther didn’t really have anything to do with metal music, the movie is getting ready to cross the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. So there’s no doubt that quite a few fans of metal music around the world have seen the movie. Even for those who don’t even realize what these shirts are influenced by, they’re pretty good-looking shirts either way. Maybe for Black Panther 2 we can get some Metallica and Anthrax influenced shirts? You can check out images of the heavy metal-inspired Black Panther shirts for yourself below. This was first reported by Metal Injection.

Thanos’ Backstory Will Be Told in Infinity War

We already know that Thanos is going to be a force to be reckoned with when Infinity War hits theaters, but now we know we’ll get an indicator of why he is the way that he is, according to actor Josh Brolin. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said that the very first 5 minutes of Infinity War will show us the immense power of Thanos right off the bat. And now, Josh Brolin reveals that it’s not a good idea to underestimate the mind of Thanos as well.

Fans of Thanos will get to see some of the character’s early years on Titan as well as how the planet was destroyed and the motivations behind the villain’s current quest. Josh Brolin has previously hinted at his influences that he and the Russo Brothers channeled while crafting the character, but now he’s giving some insight into how Thanos ended up how he is. The Mad Titan is the black sheep of his family. Brolin explains.

“He’s different from his family. They’re all Titans and they all look similar, but he was born deformed. You see how he grew up, you see he was like the Quasimodo of this time, or if you’ve ever read Perfume (Patrick Süskind ‘s 1985 novel about a serial killer who craves beautiful scenes but is disgusted by the smell of humanity), it’s a great parallel to Thanos. He stuck out. He was an anomaly. He was a freak. And that lent to this apparent insanity.”

Thanos is known for his immense power, but Josh Brolin says that the villain has never got the credit he deserves for having super intelligence. Brolin even goes on to say that Thanos is the most intelligent character in the movie, which is saying a lot when you have the minds of Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Shuri in one place. However, Josh Brolin might be biased since he plays the character. He had this to say.

“You see this lughead and this guy who you pigeonhole right from the first cosmetic reaction to him. And what I see is this in this guy’s eyes. This super, super, super intelligence. There’s this constant contrasting thing about this Neanderthalic lughead who’s way more intelligent than anybody else in the movie, by far.”

If it wasn’t already evident, the events in Infinity War and Avengers 4 are going to profoundly change the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the next phase. Kevin Feige has promised the deaths of some of the most beloved super heroes of all time, but it isn’t entirely clear exactly what else Thanos and his Black Order have in store for the future of the MCU. There’s going to be a lot more than death and destruction, that’s for sure.

Infinity War will hit theaters on April 27th, after getting bumped up a week by Marvel. The change has brought the fear of Thanos in real-life to other movies who have since moved their release dates to run away from the Mad Titan , like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Rampage. The power of Thanos is real, which isn’t limited to his brute force. You can read more about what Josh Brolin had to say about the complexities of Thanos over at Entertainment Weekly.


When Will the Avengers Learn Agent Coulson Is Still Alive?

Will Earth’s greatest heroes finally learn that their former mentor and friend Agent Coulson is still alive and well and working for S.H.I.E.L.D. when Infinity War opens this April? It’s been almost six years since Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was surprisingly killed by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in Marvel’s Avengers, a pivotal event which united the Avengers and lead to their ultimate victory. While fans have known for years that Coulson is actually alive, as seen on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., none of the actual Avengers know that, but it seems that will change very soon. During a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb revealed that the Avengers will ultimately learn about Coulson’s ruse, although when that will happen is uncertain.

“It’s certainly something that will get resolved, and it may get resolved in a very surprising way.”

Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has switched to Friday nights, it’s possible that there could be a crossover brewing in upcoming episodes that will tie into Avengers: Infinity War, which was recently pushed from May 4 to April 27. Tonight marks the 12th episode this season, entitled The Real Deal, which is also the show’s landmark 100th episode, and if the show continues its run without any breaks in between, the show will air its 19th episode this season on April 27. This “surprising way” Jeph Loeb teased could very well be during an Avengers 3 post-credit scene, but naturally that has yet to be confirmed. Clark Gregg was also asked about being reunited with the Avengers, although he didn’t offer many specifics.

“When they feel like it’s time to start connecting any of these worlds, they will. I feel like I’ll hear from them then, but in the meantime, I have my hands full trying to do a good job on (S.H.I.E.L.D.)”

In this current fifth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it has been recently revealed that Coulson is actually dying, although his potential cause of death remains unknown, with answers expected in tonight’s 100th episode. Coulson is expected to reveal the details of his deal with Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna) in Season 4. The show has remained “on the bubble” for being renewed for a sixth season, with the show’s executive producers Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, and Jeffrey Bell recently revealing that they’re writing the Season 5 finale as a series finale, in case the show isn’t renewed for Season 6, although there will still be story opportunities to explore if the show is picked up.

While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, crossovers between the movie universe and this TV series have been few and far between. Towards the end of the first season, the events of Captain America: Civil War drastically changed things for the show, when it was revealed that Hydra had infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D. long ago, with the destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D. forcing Coulson and his agents to go underground. While the agency has been legitimized on the show once again, it hasn’t been addressed on the movie side yet, although some speculate that may happen in this summer’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, since Randall Park was confirmed as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jimmy Woo. Entertainment Weekly broke this news earlier today, although we’ll have to wait and see when and if the Avengers will finally learn the truth about Coulson.


Dune Remake Director Is Aiming for 2 or More Movies

Denis Villeneuve is taking his Dune adaptation very seriously and has announced that it will be at least two movies, possibly more. This should be reassuring news for fans of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel, which is over 400 pages long. While David Lynch’s 1984 film has its charms, it really doesn’t do the original source material justice and fans have been waiting for over 30 years for a proper adaptation. Villeneuve is one of those fans and says that he wants his version to be the movie that he always envisioned.

Denis Villeneuve appeared at the Rendez-Vous du Cinema Quebecois earlier this week and revealed his plans for his Dune movie. The director did not reveal anything else about the project but did mention that it was going to be quite the undertaking. Villeneuve estimates that it will take a few years to complete. He had this to say.

Dune will probably take two years to make. The goal is to make two films, maybe more.”

The idea of a possible franchise for Dune is definitely exciting and the most news that we’ve heard about the project since Denis Villeneuve announced that it was going to be like Star Wars for adults. That comment caught some flak from some Star Wars fans, but that’s a part of the director’s charm. He also previously revealed that the movie will not be anything like David Lynch’s 1984 version. Villeneuve explains.

“David Lynch did an adaptation in the ’80s that has some very strong qualities. I mean, David Lynch is one of the best filmmakers alive, I have massive respect for him. But when I saw his adaptation, I was impressed, but it was not what I had dreamed of, so I’m trying to make the adaptation of my dreams. It will not have any link with the David Lynch movie. I’m going back to the book, and going to the images that came out when I read it.”

Blade Runner 2049 was originally going to be cut into two different movies once Denis Villeneuve had made a four-hour edit. However, Warner Bros. had other ideas and it was decided to cut the movie down to one two-hour feature length movie. The movie was a hit with critics and most fans, but it didn’t perform at the box office like the studio had hoped it would. Dune will be a different story and it will be interesting to see what Villeneuve has in his head.

Alejandro Jodorowsky attempted to make Dune in the 1970s but the movie fell apart despite the intense amount of work that went into it. A lot of the original designs from Jodorowsky have become iconic over the years, but Denis Villeneuve will not be using any of that material for his upcoming adaptation because he believes that it would be “arrogant” of him to borrow any of those ideas. Two or more Dune movies are certainly a good place to start. The original report came from The Playlist.
