Winston Duke Is Back in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’

To say there’s an air of mystery surrounding Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a bit of an understatement. There’s so much we don’t know about this movie, which is currently filming in Atlanta. But we know at least one good thing: Winston Duke will return as M’Baku. The actor himself confirmed his involvement when chatting with Collider while doing press for his film Nine Days. He will be joining back with previously confirmed cast members Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong’...

Even Don Cheadle Thinks His Emmy Nomination For ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ is Ludicrous

Don Cheadle has delivered plenty of outstanding performances over the course of his three-decade career, and even when he shows up in something that isn’t great, he’s a reliable presence and frequently elevates the projects he’s in. But even as a fan of the actor’s work (seek him out in No Sudden Move, which is currently on HBO Max), it’s just plain ridiculous that Cheadle received an Emmy nomination for his two-minute cameo in Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. And I’m far from...

Richard E. Grant Has a Pitch for His Own ‘Loki’ Spin-Off and It Involves Alligator Loki

Is there any actor in the business right now who’s having more fun than Richard E. Grant? In recent years, the esteemed thespian has shown up in Game of Thrones as a hilariously snobbish actor in a traveling play, as “Shiver” in Disney’s bizarrely compelling The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (a movie and a performance than I’m 50% sure I must have hallucinated), and lived out his dream as a First Order officer in The Rise of Skywalker. It was an utter coup for Marvel to grab him for their ongo...

‘Loki’ Originally Featured a Scene Where Frog Thor Beat Up the God of Mischief

The Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be moving in the direction of more and more animal superheroes: not just reptiles, but also amphibians. While we wait for the inevitable Alligator Loki spin-off (that’s not seriously a thing … yet), fans will have to content themselves with the hatching of Easter eggs. But one such Easter egg almost had a bigger debut in Loki. Frog Thor, AKA Throg, is a fan favorite in Marvel Comics, but on the Disney+series Loki, he’s only a tadpole of an idea right now...
