Jaimie Alexander Talks Wonder Woman Movie

Published

Jamie Alexander Sif

At the same Comicaze 2013 panel where she revealed that a Thor 3 is in the works, Jaimie Alexander hinted at a Wonder Woman movie, stating that she was “having discussions with both companies [Marvel and D.C.]” about the idea.

“I’m a huge fan of Wonder Woman,” she stated when the topic is raised. “I really think if this is the closest that we’re ever going to get to Wonder Woman, then I’m proud to play Sif.”

But she doesn’t want anything to do with a botched Wonder Woman…

“I hope that other comic book entities can learn a lesson from Marvel in how to execute a female character the way it should be done. I really would like to one day see a Wonder Woman film or Wonder Woman character, but until it’s done with class, I’d rather it not be done.”

While it will be some time before we see a Wonder Woman movie, it has been rumored that the heroine might make an appearance in Batman vs. Superman, with Alexander herself letting slip that she “kind of knows the storyline for that movie.”

Fans have been wishing for Alexander to play Wonder Woman for a very long time.

Final ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Has The Avengers Go To Space

Poster of last surviving Avengers in Avengers: Endgame

The Avengers go to space to take on Thanos in the final trailer for “Avengers: Endgame.”

Whereas the first trailer showed Stark stranded in a spacecraft, low on both oxygen and hope, and the second trailer showed him back on Earth, the third and final trailer sees him re-assemble the Avengers to bring Thanos to justice and save the universe.

The one-minute clip is light on details, but we are reminded of the team’s mantra of doing “whatever it takes” to try and undo the damage caused by the Mad Titan.

We get a scene with them zooming past planets in their spaceship, the Benatar, and another showing off some slick new white Avengers uniforms. The trailer closes off with a face-off between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, fresh off her blockbuster standalone debut to help out the desperate Avengers.

Whatever last-ditch plan they managed to put together will surely end in a big bang. How do you want things to turn out?

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt

There are up to 50 actors in the promising Netflix Series, least of which is Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill as the iconic White Wolf.

Henry Cavill wasn’t kidding when he expressed a desire to join Netflix’s The Witcher.

The British actor, best know for playing Superman in the Man of Steel and Justice League movies, is a fan of both the fantasy novels and CD Projekt’s RPG series, letting it be known that he would love to play Geralt of Rivia. His wish has come true.

Freya Allan (Into the Badlands) will star alongside Cavill as Ciri, Geralt’s adoptive daughter in The Witcher series, while badass sorceress Yennefer will be played by Anya Chalotra (The ABC Murders). Yennefer is also Ciri’s mother figure and Geralt’s true love.

Jodhi May (Game of Thrones) takes the helm as Queen Calanthe, with Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson (Fortitude) serving as the the knight Eist, her husband. Adam Levy (Knightfall, Snatch) plays Mousesack the druid.

Tissaia (MyAnna Buring, Ripper Street, Kill List) leads the magical academy at Aretuza, where novice sorcerers Fringilla (Mimi Ndiweni, Black Earth Rising) and Sabrina (Therica Wilson-Read, Profile) are training.

Also joining the cast is Millie Brady (The Last Kingdom, Teen Spirit) as the outcast Princess Renfri.

It seems like a good mix of newcomers and star talent. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, showrunner and executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich revealed that the cast is currently up to 50 actors, and over 200 people auditioned for the Ciri role alone.

Here’s Why Carnage Wasn’t In The Venom Movie

Published

Venom vs Carnage - Spider Man

Most comic book fans expected Carnage to be the main villain.

The nut job villain was originally intended to be in the Venom movie, but director Ruben Fleischer chose to exclude him in favor of another symbiote, Riot. There is a reason for that.

In an interview with CBR, Flesicher admitted that its the keenness of fans to see Carnage that led Sony to keep him out of the first movie and save him for the sequel. He stated:

“I think, you know, there’s a certain symbiote spawn that I think fans are most excited to see. So that one was off the table. Hopefully at some point in the future they will. So we wanted to save kind of the most anticipated one for the future. And not just that, but because we really wanted this movie to be about Venom.”

As for why he chose Riot over the dozen or so symbiotes that exist in the Marvel universe, he explained:

“…it was just honestly kind of like, who’s the coolest looking spawn who isn’t that one? The most badass, you know? That’s where Riot came from. He’s the biggest of the Life Foundation symbiotes, he’s got that gun metal grey. I don’t want to say it was purely an aesthetic decision, but the aesthetics definitely played a big part.”

Cletus Kasady, Carnage’s host, actually makes a very brief appearance in the mid-credits scene of Venom, setting the symbiote up for a starring role in the sequel. And speaking to CinemaBlend about the cameo, Fleischer stated he couldn’t envisioned anyone other than Woody Harrelson for the role:

“He was the first person I thought of to play Cletus Kasady. And what will be fun is, if you think about Woody in Natural Born Killers, and that darkness and that menace that he can bring to a serial killer like Cletus Kasady, you know, he can go real dark and explore that.”

Like most comic book fans, we can’t wait to see Venom and Carnage clash on the big screen, but leaving out the crazed symbiote in such a pivotal movie for Sony was a risky move. It’s a good thing Venom was a box office hit, surprising as it may be, despite receiving mixed reviews from critics.
