Last summer, Marvel head Kevin Feige cleared up some confusion about when audiences could expect to see the studio’s first queer superhero fighting to save the world on the big screen. After initial reports that Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie would explore her canonical bisexuality in Thor: Love & Thunder, Feige explained…Read more...

Marvel Studios’ First Gay Couple Revealed in ‘Eternals’ – Here’s Who They Are

We’ve known for a while that Eternals, the upcoming Marvel Studios movie directed by Chloe Zhao, is supposed to be the first MCU movie to include LGBTQ representation in a significant way.

Read on to find out which actors are playing those roles. In a new interview with Logo (via io9), actor Haaz Sleiman (The Visitor, Amazon’s Jack Ryan) reve...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe May Produce Blockbusters, But It Doesn’t Create Movie Stars

The old-fashioned concept of movie stardom, depending on how you look at it, has been on life support for a long time or just flat-out dead. The premise is simple: actors open a movie, not intellectual property. But even if you had a slightly more positive outlook on the state of movie stardom, the recent film Dolittle should have served as the final nail in the coffin of any hopes you had for a 21st-century movie star. That film’s stumbles at the box office are only further evidence that ...

‘Sylvie’s Love’ Review: A Sexy, Simmering Romance Starring Tessa Thompson and Rising Star Nnamdi Asomugha [Sundance 2020]

Hollywood’s Golden Age is full of grand, sweeping love stories, but that era of cinema history didn’t exactly provide an equal playing field for filmmakers and actors of color. So Sylvie’s Love, writer/director Eugene Ashe’s new grand, sweeping love story, feels less like a pure homage than him making a movie that should have existed back then but was never given the chance. The result is an exquisite piece of old-school filmmaking, one in which star-crossed lovers and rain-soaked streets and a...

‘Sylvie’s Love’: Film Review

Sultry music swells as the camera swoons over a young couple in a tender nighttime embrace. The 1950s residential New York City street is carefully rain-slicked and lined with shiny classic cars: an obvious stage set. Gene Kelly might just have swung on that lamppost; Doris Day might lean out of an upstairs window to sigh […]

‘Bad Hair’ Review: ‘Dear White People’ Director Delivers a Horror Thriller for the Ages [Sundance 2020]

Writer/director Justin Simien premiered his feature film debut Dear White People at Sundance in 2014, and later went on to adapt that movie into a Netflix streaming series. Now he’s back at the festival with something completely new: an ‘80s-set horror thriller about a killer weave. It’s 1989, and Anna (Elle Lorraine) is a down-on-her-luck assistant at Rock Music Video, an MTV-style network based in Los Angeles. All of her best ideas are swiped by others and passed off as their own, leaving A...

Laughing at the Days to Come

A book about suffering is usually born from adversity in the life of the author, and that’s exactly the case with Tessa Thompson’s Laughing at the Days to Come: Facing Present Trials and Future Uncertainties with Gospel Hope. When she was in her mid-teens, she was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) and began to lose her hearing. Her father had been diagnosed a short time before, so she had been a first-hand witness to his struggles to adjust to a difficult new realit...

‘Lady and the Tramp’ Review: The First Disney+ Original is…Totally Adequate?

The slew of live-action and computer-animated remakes of Disney’s hand-drawn animated classics have largely managed to feel creatively bereft, but they have never been entirely pointless. Why does a remake of Aladdin or Dumbo or The Lion King exist? If nothing else, to further fill the coffers of the Walt Disney Company, so that its executives can pull a Scrooge McDuck and dive through the cash. It’s a cynical view, and arguably a point that doesn’t impact anyone who isn’t a shareh...

Mark Ruffalo Was Worried About ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Ruining Hulk and Thor

Thor: Ragnarok is one of the best movies on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that’s largely thanks to director Taika Waititi breathing new life into the comic book franchise and really pushing Thor in an exciting new direction. Chris Hemsworth was very much excited to give the God of Thunder a new path to follow, but not everyone on the cast was quite so confident in this more comedic approach. Mark Ruffalo was particularly worried about the trajectory of Hulk and Thor. Appea...

Brie Larson Reaffirms Passion for a Marvel Female Team-Up, and Kevin Feige Is Very Much Aware

While many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are dominated by male superheroes, the women have really started to push forward and take a prominent role. It’s a shame that Captain Marvel was the studio’s first solo movie for a female superhero, and that movie just came out earlier this year, but Avengers: Endgame also gave all our key female characters a big moment in the final battle (even if some fans weren’t entirely satisfied), and that has Captain Marvel star Brie Larson and the rest ...
