CHRIS HEMSWORTH TALKS ‘THOR: RAGNAROK’

Published

on

Details about ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ have been few and far between.  What we do know is that Chris Hemsworth will be reprising his role as the God of Thunder/Odinson.  We also know that Mark Ruffalo will be joining Hemsworh and reprising his role as Dr. Banner/ The Hulk.

What does this say about the direction of Ragnarok?  It says that we are in for a treat.  We all know that the battle between Thor and Hulk has always been a sought after one.  We received somewhat of a tease of this via ‘The Avengers‘ in 2012.  But reports have lead us to believe that the green guy might be finding his way to Asgard, which could set up a sort of “Thor vs Hulk” showdown in the early part of the film..

Chris Hemsworth spoke to New York Daily News while promoting his upcoming film “In The Heart of The Sea” and had this too say about a potential Hulk/Thor rematch:

“I’d like to think I let him win last time, but because this movie is called Thor, I have to win this time,”

He went on to say:

“I hope it’s a Butch Cassidy (and the Sundance Kid”) sort of story,” he said, referring to a 1969 buddy western. “That would be fun. I love Mark. I think those two characters haven’t spent a whole lot of time talking to each other on screen, so it’s something new, I think it would bring something different out of the characters. It’s hard to have a conversation with the Hulk.”

Recently in an interview with Cinemablend, Chris Hemsworth had these thoughts about the direction of the 3rd Thor installment:

“I think [‘Thor 3’] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with ‘Guardians [Of The Galaxy’],” he shared. “It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?”

Joaquin Phoenix Set To Return As The Joker In 2022

Published

on

Joker [Warner Bros. Pictures]

According to new “Insider information,” Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly been offered $50M to reprise his role as Arthur Fleck, failed comedian turned clown prince of Gotham aka the Joker.

Phoenix had originally said, he felt that ‘Joker’ was a stand alone film that didn’t need sequels. Now, it sounds as if he is changing his tune. According to insiders, a script is currently in the works at Warner Bros. And Phoenix is thoroughly involved.

“Joaquin initially felt ‘Joker’ was a standalone movie. But he’s changed his tune now. He says he wants to play this character again, despite the controversies that came with the release last year. It’s still being negotiated but the scripts are being written and Joaquin is very engaged with it.”

‘Joker,’ was an anomaly in the comic book movie world of 2020. Bringing home the Golden Lion, Critics Choice, Screen Actors Guild Awards. Culminating with Joaquin Phoenix earning “Best Actor” at the Oscars.

With the 2021 and 2022 film slate rapidly filling, it would appear that Warner Bros. Is planning two more films. Hoping to release in 2022 and 2024.

“They plan to make two sequels in the next four years, with a long-term commitment to Joaquin and his Joker director Todd Phillips and producer Bradley Cooper. It’s all about getting Joaquin to accept the terms, and the biggest payday of his career by far.”

What do you think, should ‘Joker’ remain a standalone film?

Wonder Woman 1984 | Review

Published

on

DC films in recent years have been heavily criticized for being too dark and gritty but Wonder Woman 1984 is the complete opposite, it’s full of so much fun and colour and joy. In terms of the tone and feel of the film it’s very reminiscent of the Christopher Reeve Superman films. It’s a delight from start to finish despite the 151-minute runtime as it’s just pure entertainment and the sort of fun we need right now to see us through to the end of 2020.

Wonder Woman 1984 follows Diana Prince, AKA Wonder Woman, played excellently by Gal Gadot now living in the 1980s and working in a museum when a mysterious ancient artefact shows up that seems to grant people wishes. This dream-stone starts causing big problems when its powers begin to get abused by Diana’s colleague Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig) who comic fans will recognise as Wonder Woman villain ‘The Cheetah’. Barbara isn’t the only person who wants the stone as businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) is after it too. Wonder Woman, with the help of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) must stop the Cheetah and Max Lord before it gets too late.

“This world is not yet ready for all that you will do.” 

The film opens with a great scene on Themyscira, the island home of the Amazons, with a young Diana taking part in the Amazon games. Straight away we get thrown back into the exciting world of Wonder Woman with a fast-paced action scene. The opening looks really amazing, particularly in an IMAX cinema, as Wonder Woman 1984 was partially filmed with IMAX cameras meaning you get to see more in certain scenes. As well as looking amazing, the whole film, and in particular the opening scene, sounds great too as Hans Zimmer’s booming score fills your ears. The film immediately has you hooked and it doesn’t let you go until the very end.

The opening scene is really good fun and it doesn’t stop there. Not long afterwards we get our first glimpse of Gal Gadot trying to stop some thugs robbing a jewellery store in a shopping mall and she gets a really glorious entrance as she takes down the bad guys with ease and we really see that Gal Gadot completely embodies that character of Wonder Woman.

“One day you will become all that you dream of and more.”

It’s interesting to look at how the two villains shape up in this film as one of the biggest problems I had with the previous Wonder Woman film was the villain. And so, are the villains in the sequel any better? Yes, although they’re still not perfect. Both of the villains do have some issues but Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal bring so much enthusiasm and charisma to their characters that you just about forget about their character flaws. Kristen Wiig’s Barbara does seem a little generic and we first meet her in a scene that really reminded me of Jamie Foxx’s Electro’s introduction in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as we see Barbara’s colleagues taking no notice of her and we can already begin to wonder how she might try and change things.

Pascal brings so much life and character to Maxwell Lord and it really is a joy to watch his face fill the screen, especially since a lot of us have been seeing him trapped behind a helmet recently in The Mandalorian. But Lord too does have some issues, particularly in the third act when things begin to get a little messy and some of his motivations seem a little unclear but I think Wiig and Pascal play their respective roles so well that it’s enough to see past these issues.

“Your time will come, Diana.  Everything will be different

As mentioned above, the villains can be a bit weak in places which makes the 3rd act a bit messier (although still much cleaner than the 3rd act of the first film) and some of the character’s motivations can be unclear in certain places but other than that, it’s a really good film. Despite being two and a half hours long, the time completely flies by as it’s just so much fun and because all the action set-pieces are so well done.

I really hope that after films like Shazam!, Birds of Prey and now Wonder Woman 1984  DC continue to make more bright, vibrant and colourful fun films, they just provide so much pleasure and exuberance to you when you watch them and that’s exactly what the world needs right now. Patty Jenkins has crafted another great film and Wonder Woman 1984 is full of plenty of scenes to keep both the Wonder Woman novices and experts entertained throughout.

Overall, Wonder Woman 1984 is a joyous thrill ride that’s even better than the first film. It’s so much fun and filled with lots of colour and plenty of enjoyment.
