Deleted scene from Iron Man

Recently, it was announced that Marvel Studios were planning to release never before scene footage, as part of The Infinity Saga boxset. The box set will consist of every MCU film up to Avengers: End Game.

Marvel Studios Big Boss, Kevin Feige has shared one such scene. It’s an unused post-credits scene from 2008’s Iron Man. Nick Fury mentions “Mutants” and radioactive bug bites”.

I imagine this was dropped due to rights issues, at the time 20th century Fox owned X-Men, Daredevil and Fantastic Four. Whilst Sony owned Spider-Man, this was years before the now defunct rights sharing deal. A similar thing happened with Blade, the original last shot saw Michael Morbius standing on top of a building staring down at Blade. This scene was dropped when Sony’s lawyers reminded New Line, that Sony own the character.

Trailer-Hellboy

The trailer shows off the titular character working with the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) as they fight against monsters that threaten the world.

This new film isn’t connected to the two previous, Guillermo del Toro directed Hellboy films. This is a complete reboot, directed by Neil Marshall.

Honestly, as a fan of the source material and of the two Del Toro films. This trailer has me worried. It’s tone is all over the place, one second it’s tongue-in-cheek, the next deadly serious. It’s also full of Americans doing “cock-er-knee” accents, that would give Dick Van Dyke a run for his money.

Spider-Man: Far from home synopsis

SPIDER-MAN Far From Home’s trailer have been allegedly delayed, however a synopsis for the film has been released. After some lucky fans were shown the trailer in Brazil.

“Peter Parker and his friends go on summer holidays to Europe. However, the friends will hardly be able to rest – Peter will have to agree to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of creatures that cause natural disasters and destruction throughout the continent.”

Spider-Man Far From Home is released in July 2019.

The film stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei and Cobie Smulders.



Amy Adams thinks she’s done with DCEU

Speaking with Nicole Kidman on Variety’s Actors on Actors, Amy Adams welcomed the Aquaman star to the DCEU, before stating:

“I think I’m out of the DC universe now… I think they are revamping that. I don’t know.”

While there’s been no official word on Superman’s status within the DCEU. It does seem likely that the character is on hold, for now. Media outlets widely reported that Henry Cavill has been released from his contract, with rumours that Ben Affleck would be next.

It’s no secret that Warner Bros. and DC Films have been taking stock, following the poor reception to Batman V Superman, suicide squad and Justice League.



Until recently, the DCEU was flying without a captain. But Walter Hamada has now been appointed and reportedly wants to shift focus away from Superman and Batman in favour of projects such as “Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn”.

My thoughts on Doctor Who taking a break

In news that won’t surprise anyone, The BBC confirmed last night that series 12 of Doctor Who will not return until 2020.



There’s been a bit of a backlash to this news. But I’m choosing to view it’s delay in a positive way.

Here’s another example of a Chibnall lead sci-fi show benefitting from a break. Torchwood.

Series 1 launched in October 2006 and aside from the odd episode here or there, it wasn’t quite right.

But, when series 2 rolled around in January 2008. The production team had learnt from the mistakes of the first series, ditched what didn’t work and improved what had. The result was a tighter, much better show.

This break in Doctor Who, might just be what the doctor ordered. A chance to look at what worked, what didn’t and improve it.

Also, side not regarding Torchwood. Everyone thinks they toned down the swearing in series 2. In fact there’s actually more swearing in series 2. They just use it correctly and because they use it correctly, it doesn’t jar when you hear it.

Celebrity deathmatch returning

MTV has confirmed they’re bringing back “Celebrity Deathmatch.”

The “reimagined” show will return in 2019 as a weekly series. Rapper/writer/actor Ice Cube will star and an executive producer. The series, whilst the show’s original creator Eric Fogel is returning as executive producer.



“Celebrity Deathmatch” premiered on MTV in 1998 and ran until 2007. The show pitted stop-motion-animated celebrities against each other in satirical wrestling matches. It was groundbreaking at the time, even launching some video game spin-offs. A reboot was due back in 2015 but ultimately fell through.

Here’s a reminder of what the show was like.

Jodie Whittaker talks about Doctor Who’s filming schedule

In an excerpt released by The Two shot podcast, Jodie Whittaker talks about the challenges of the Doctor Who filming schedule.

It’s rewardingly hard because every night you go home and the next day is your big day as well. That’s the bit I’m not used to. I’m used to going in and it being like Monday and Tuesday are pretty light. I’m not in Wednesday or Thursday and Friday is a big day. And this, every day’s the big day and for nine months. I’ve never done that. I’m sure it’s happened to lots of people, it’s just never happened to me. I think that was overwhelming, was I gonna always be on top of my lines? It’s the lines that are the hardest part.
