Explore the Avengers Campus Breakfast and meet TVA Loki
Our own Peter Sciretta and his chain Ordinary Adventures have stopped Avengers Campus at Disneyland for morning snacks. See what breakfast is like in the Marvel Theme Park, then see what it’s like to interact with the new Time Variance Authority version of Loki from the Marvel series on Disney +.
Could we have a complete romance in Loki?
Loki director Kate herron downplayed the idea of a complete romance between Loki (Tom hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophie Di Martino), despite the end of the recent episode of the series making fans think otherwise. When asked how their dynamic evolved on Lamentis-1 and if any possible romance would blossom between the two Gods of Mischief, Herron told Thrillist:
“Not necessarily romantic, but Loki doesn’t have a lot of friends, you know?” He builds this friendship with Mobius throughout the second episode. It was really about creating characters who, by the time they get to town at the end of the show, they’ll work as a team. And they must have been on a trip and maybe they’ll be friends, we don’t know, but at least they’re at a point where, ‘OK, I’m supporting you right now.’ “
Spidey and his amazing friends animated shorts
Before Spidey and his amazing friends arrives on Disney Channel and Disney Junior on August 6, discover this animated short film featuring the animated webslingers.
The series follows Peter Parker (Benjamin Valic), Miles Morales (Jakari fraser) and Gwen Stacy (Lily sanfelippo) as the young heroes team up with the Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Black Panther to take down evil foes like Rhino, Doc Ock, and Green Goblin, and learn that teamwork is the best way to save the day.
Kevin Feige honors the late Richard Donner
In case you didn’t know, the boss of Marvel Studios Kevin feige made his Hollywood debut working alongside Richard Donner and his wife and producer Lauren Shuler Donner. After working as an assistant on their film Volcano, his hard work and knowledge of Marvel paid off in earning him an associate producer position on the first X Men movie. The rest, as we know, is history, and Feige offered this tribute to Donner on social networks:
“Richard Donner not only made me believe that a man could fly, he made me believe that comic book characters could come to life on the big screen with heart, humor, humanity and verisimilitude. Most of all, he taught me that it can and should be done with respect, kindness and kindness to everyone in front of and behind the camera. Dick and Lauren became mentors early in my career and key supporters throughout the birth of the MCU. I owe my career to the way they took the time to educate and teach a kid in New Jersey who didn’t know how to use a fax machine or make coffee very well. I always thought Dick was immortal. I still do. My thoughts are with Lauren and the whole family.
View all Lokis
Marvel Studios has released a short TV spot for the upcoming fifth episode of their series Loki, including a new photo of a group of more Lokis hanging out with Tom hiddleston in the world where reset variants are sent by the Time Variance Authority. There is clearly a lot more craziness to come in what could end up being Marvel’s best series yet.
Blade co-star Stephen Dorff takes it out on Black Widow
In an interview with The Independent, Blade scoundrel Stephane Dorff went out of his way to go after Black Widow, rejecting the film quite harshly. When asked what roles he is interested in at this point in his career, Dorff replied:
“I always chase the good shit because I don’t wanna be in Black Widow. It sounds like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game. I am ashamed for these people. I’m ashamed for Scarlett! I’m sure she got paid five, seven million dollars, but I’m ashamed for her. I don’t want to be in these movies. I really don’t. I will find this young director who will be the next Kubrick and I will play for him instead.
For those who matter, Stephen Dorff also starred in the Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface, the comedy of Nick Swardson Bucky Larson: Born to be a star, and something called Albion: the enchanted stallion. So the search for the next Kubrick continues, I guess.
