Zendaya Officially Returning As Mj For Spider-Man 3

It’s safe to say that we all knew this would be happening, but now it’s official: Zendaya will be reprising her role as Michelle “Mj” Jones in Spider-Man 3. The beloved character made her first onscreen appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where she took over as the head of the Decathlon team and eventually befriended Ned Leeds and Peter Parker.

Her friendship with the hero soon sprouted into a romance during their trip to Europe in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Michelle is one of the few people who know about her boyfriend’s alter ego, too, and as the franchise moves forward, fans are excited to get to watch their relationship continue to evolve. Given how things left off between them at the end of the last flick though, it’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen next.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Director Explains That Avengers: Endgame Plot Hole

You might remember the Spider-Man: Far From Home cast’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in May, in which Tom Holland and the rest joked about the confusing state of the McU timeline following Avengers: Endgame. On the topic of how Peter Parker and his friends are still in high school following the five-year time jump, Holland jokingly called it “the biggest plot hole of all time.”

Now that we’ve actually seen the movie, it’s clear that the filmmakers were aware that this needed some clarification. In fact, the opening scene explains that those who were turned to dust before “the Blip” are required to redo the whole school year now that they’ve been resurrected. It wasn’t really a plot hole at all, then, so why did the cast pretend it was?

While speaking to Huffington Post, Far From Home director Jon Watts was asked

Is It Hot in Here, or Is It Just Spider-Man: Far From Home's Very Hunky Remy Hii?

Spider-Man: Far From Home features some of our favorite returning Marvel stars, including Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), Jacob Batalon (Ned), and Zendaya (Mj). But there are also some new, insanely attractive faces gracing the big screen with their presence. One of the standout hunks is the character Brad Davis, who competes with Peter for Mj's attention. So, who plays him? Say hello to 32-year-old Remy Hii.

In the comics, Brad is the star quarterback at Empire State University where he and Mj date. But in the McU, he's introduced as a suave ladies' man, amassing countless eye-rolls and side-eyes from Peter. When half of all living things get snapped to dust in Avengers: Infinity War - an event dubbed "the blip" - those who disappear into oblivion don't age within the five years it takes for the Avengers to get back on track and ultimately defeat Thanos.

Yes, Peter Parker Is Still a High Schooler in Spider-Man: Far From Home - Here's Why

Avengers: Endgame might tie up some loose ends, but it also blasts a gargantuan hole through the wall of possibility for Marvel's fourth phase. Spider-Man: Far From Home is the official final movie in the Infinity Saga, and it's already giving us a glimpse at just how wild things are going to get once we dive into the new McU era. We already know that the film hints at the possibility of a multiverse - an infinite realm in which different versions of our world exist - but there's another anomalous occurrence that the movie addresses: how the heck are Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and his classmates still in high school?

The answer is simple, albeit trippy. But let's first rewind a bit. We already know that Thanos delivers the noxious snap in Avengers: Infinity War and wipes out half the universe, including Spider-Man. After the Avengers suffer from that devastating defeat,

Film Review: ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’
As the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be released after the shoot-the-works finale of the “Avengers” saga, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” gets to test-drive a crucial question of blockbuster culture, if not movie aesthetics: What does it feel like to watch a Marvel film in a post-Avengers world? Is there anything at stake left?

There has, on occasion, been something at stake in a Marvel movie, yet rarely does it have much to do with how the end of civilization looms up in these movies. It has to do with that mysterious, hard-to-bottle chemistry of audience and superhero — the flow of actor, character, mythology, and FX concept as they merge and navigate a universe of eye-widening hermetic excitement. On that score, “Far From Home” takes a quantum leap — or maybe just a spider swing — over the first Peter Parker film in the McU, 2017’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” (Many

Beauty vs Beast: The Spy Who Stabbed Me

Jason Adams from Mnpp here, continuing our little Pride Month run of Lgbt-centric "Beauty vs Beast" contests -- we're turning our eyes towards the small screen this week for one of our favorite on-going queer series, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's fabulously twisted sapphic spy versus spy series Killing Eve. Deserving all of the awards we can violently fling at them in one corner we've got Sandra Oh as Eve, the hyper-capable but darksided intelligence officer, and in the other there's Jodie Comer as the psychopath but don't call her that Villanelle (god that name is so good), who's spotted a little something inside Eve she can't wait to dig her fingers around in.

Beauty vs Beast: Sailors Moon

Unsurprising given his extraordinary output over the course of his 37 years on Earth Fassbinder's projects outlived his days, and one finished film came out a few months after he'd passed -- his gorgeously gay and strange Genet adaptation Querelle, starring Brad Davis as a sailor entangled in lusty criminalities in port, and that's where we'll rest our eyes today (since we're also covering Lgbt films all June to boot). Much like Lieutenant Seblon can't keep his eyes off his charge, neither can we all these years later...

Herman Wouk, Author of ‘Caine Mutiny,’ ‘Winds of War,’ Dies at 103

Herman Wouk, Author of ‘Caine Mutiny,’ ‘Winds of War,’ Dies at 103
Herman Wouk, the author of novels adapted to the big and small screen, including “The Caine Mutiny,” “Marjorie Morningstar,” “The Winds of War” and “War and Remembrance,” has died. He was 103.

The Caine Mutiny,” a 1951 bestseller that won Wouk the Pulitzer Prize, was memorably adapted into the 1954 film starring Humphrey Bogart, who played the paranoid, mentally unstable captain of a Navy minesweeper whose actions drive his subordinates to mutiny. That pic, directed by Edward Dmytryk and also starring Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson and Fred MacMurray, drew seven Oscar nominations, including those for best picture and screenplay for Stanley Roberts.

Wouk relied upon his wartime experiences not only for “The Caine Mutiny,” but for his later novels “The Winds of War” (1971) and “War and Remembrance” (1978). These expansive works, which followed one character, Navy Commander Victor “Pug” Henry, through seemingly every important moment in WWII, were adapted into the highly successful ABC miniseries of the same name.

World AIDS Day 2018: Remembering Those We Lost

World AIDS Day takes place on December 1st each year. It's an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day. Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people who have the virus. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.

Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. World AIDS Day is important because it reminds the public and government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.

John Cena Makes Big Announcement at Wrestlemania.

2017-04-03T04:41:09-07:00John Cena Makes Big Announcement at Wrestlemania.

After having his love for Nikki Bella publicly questioned by The Miz before their match at WrestleMania 33, John Cena proposed to his longtime girlfriend on pro wrestling's biggest stage Sunday.

The proposal came after he and Nikki beat The Miz and his wife, Maryse, in a tag-team match.

The Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez joked it finally answered one of the biggest questions about Cena's in-ring career.

Cena's failure to propose earlier was a part of the rivalry that led him and Nikki to cross paths with The Miz and Maryse at WrestleMania. During the buildup to the show, The Miz and Maryse ridiculed the couple and said Cena loved himself rather than Nikki.

Not only will Cena's proposal be a patented WrestleMania moment, but it could be a fitting send-off for Nikki, much like when her

Still Riding The Midnight Express: Exclusive Interview With Billy Hayes

  • CinemaRetro
Hayes in his one man stage show Riding the Midnight Express with Billy Hayes, which is now on tour.

By Mark Cerulli

“Ne Oldu, Ne Oldu, Veelyam Hayes…” That line from Midnight Express, delivered with swaggering menace by a depraved prison warden (played by the great Paul L. Smith) burned itself into this scribe’s cortex back in 1978. Alan Parker’s iconic film about the real-life ordeal of American student Billy Hayes caught smuggling drugs in Turkey and sentenced to a hellish prison became a cultural phenomenon – not to mention an international box office success. It earned glowing reviews and Oscars for screenwriter Oliver Stone and composer Gorgio Moroder. Hayes even met his wife Wendy at the splashy Cannes premiere. No joy for Turkey, though - there was an international outcry about their seemingly draconian justice system and the country’s once-booming tourism hit the skids hard. The gritty association

Mark Ruffalo After ‘Normal Heart': ‘If A Piano Dropped On Me Tomorrow, I Did Ok”
Exclusive, Updated At 6:06 p.m. with comments about Spotlight at end: You might call August, 2014 a full-circle month for Mark Ruffalo. His performance as Ned Weeks in Ryan Murphy‘s HBO version of The Normal Heart earned one of that film’s astonishing 16 Emmy nominations, with the winners to be announced on Aug. 25. He’s eager to catch the Broadway revival of the 1996 stage play that launched his career, Kenneth Lonergan‘s This Is Our Youth, which begins on the 18th with Michael Cera and Kieran Culkin.

Writing about his work in Lonergan’s You Can Count On Me, the New York Times’ Stephen Holden said, “Mr. Ruffalo’s star-making performance deserves to be added to the list of charismatic, grownup lost boys that includes the Marlon Brando of A Streetcar Named Desire and the Jack Nicholson of Easy Rider.”

April Showers: Midnight Express (1978)

Waterworks some nights at 11. This one is from the vaults from the first season. But it's worth a revisit as the film is currently available on Netflix Instant Watch.

I've always been a little bit a lot perplexed by the famous shower scene in Alan Parker's Midnight Express (1978). I'm not exactly sure why it's in the movie. Midnight Express strongest asset is arguably its expressive physicality and gritty tactile quality; you feel like you're right there in the grotty hellish Turkish prison, sweating and suffering along with Billy Hayes (Brad Davis). But the sexual vibes coming off of the movie are at times unfathomable. Is it gay? Is it bi? Is it straight? Is it just horny? Or is its ambiguous eroticism simply a by-product of casting a star as carnally charismatic as Brad Davis in the lead role?

As warm up to the famous shower scene we get
