Kumail Nanjiani Has An Amazing Name For His Eternals Superpowers

Kumail Nanjiani's bringing some guns to the upcoming Marvel flick "Eternals" -- and no I'm not talking about his Schwarzenegger-esque biceps. During a chat on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Nanjiani and his superhero co-star Salma Hayek dished on some behind the scenes stories from the making of their upcoming tentpole. Included in this conversation was what exactly Nanjiani's superpower is."I shoot sh*t. I shoot sh*t from my hands. Finger guns!"I got to work and I said, 'So, how do I shoot?'" Chloe was l...

The Eternals: Things Only Comic Book Fans Will Know About Kingo

Kit Harington's Black Knight Won't Wield The Ebony Blade In Eternals

It feels like every movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now comes with built-in expectations of "expanding the universe," but Chloé Zhao's "Eternals" appears ready to make good on that usual rhetoric with the introduction of several members of the ancient and uber-powerful team of superheroes. Billed as "Earth's original superheroes" and even predating the existence of Thanos, the Eternals will ensure that Marvel fans won't be lacking for a wealth of never-before-seen comic heroes becoming fu...

Blumhouse Wolfman Movie Script Still In Development With Ryan Gosling

The script for Blumhouse Pictures remake of The Wolfman starring Ryan Gosling is still in development says producer Jason Blum. The Wolfman is one of the most iconic of the Universal Monsters, having first appeared in the 1941 film starring Lon Channey Jr. In 2010, a remake starring Benenco Tel Toro in the title role opened in theaters after a very troubled production to negative reviews and was a box-office bomb. After Universal attempted to relaunch their monster's property with the critical...

Marvel Never Asked Richard Madden To Go Blond (Or Change His Accent)

Marvel never asked actor Richard Madden to dye his hair blond or change his accent for his role in Eternals. Madden plays Ikaris, who has traditionally had blonde hair in his comic-book incarnation.

Kumail Nanjiani On Acting In A Star Wars TV Show: 'It's F*cking Obi-Wan'

Kumail Nanjiani Plays 'A New Type Of Star Wars Character' In The Obi-Wan TV Series

If Kumail Nanjiani getting into the superhero game with Marvel's "Eternals" was a development that nobody saw coming, then the actor quickly turning around and joining the "Star Wars" universe was on a whole other level of surprise -- especially considering that it will be for the long-gestating "Obi-Wan" series. Not a bad career trajectory for a Pakistani man in Hollywood, particularly one who first got started doing stand-up comedy work and has now ascended to two of the biggest franchises on ...

Eternals Star Kumail Nanjiani Feels Conflicted About Changing His Body To Play A Superhero

Superhero movies have a tendency to come with a lot of built-in expectations and pressures, many of which can be unfair or even downright cruel to the cast and crew. One such aspect that audiences have a habit of taking for granted has to do with the physical expectations we've come to demand from actors portraying these larger-than-life characters. The toxicity that stems from unrealistic body standards is obviously something that women deal with on an often daily basis and is an issue that has...
