Michelle Williams Wants to Make a ‘Greatest Showman’ Sequel: ‘That Movie Brought So Much Joy’

Michelle Williams Wants to Make a ‘Greatest Showman’ Sequel: ‘That Movie Brought So Much Joy’
Michelle Williams harbors a deep desire to lace up her dancing shoes again.

The actress is best known for her intense performances in searing dramas like “Blue Valentine” and “Manchester by the Sea,” but she particularly loved her change-of-pace work in the ebullient musical “The Greatest Showman.”

“I would make another one of those in a heartbeat,” Williams told Variety during an interview for a recent cover story. “I wish they’d make a sequel.”

The Greatest Showman” became a theatrical blockbuster when it opened in 2017, grossing 434.9 million globally thanks in part to its mega-selling album. It was a soundtrack filled with infectious anthems such as “This Is Me,” “The Greatest Show” and “Rewrite the Stars.” Williams, who played the wife of Hugh Jackman’s P.T. Barnum in the heavily fictionalized look at the circus baron, sang such songs as “Tightrope” and “A Million Dreams.” And she wasn’t immune to the album’s ubiquity.

‘Venom 3′ and ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Sequel in the Works at Sony

‘Venom 3′ and ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Sequel in the Works at Sony
Get ready for more Venom.

Sony Pictures has greenlit a third installment in the Tom Hardy-led “Venom” franchise, following the back-to-back box office successes of 2021’s “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” (502 million globally) and 2018’s “Venom” (856 million globally).

The studio also announced plans for another “Ghostbusters” installment, which will serve as a follow-up to 2021’s reboot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” (200 million globally). Sony revealed its plans for both sequels during its Monday evening presentation at CinemaCon, the annual trade show for theater owners. Though the studio did not share any details about either movie, it revealed that new installments were on the way.

The announcement came in the form of a mash-up reel, which included footage of the Whitney Houston biopic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Kraven the Hunter,” “The Equalizer 3,” never-before-seen clips from Tom Hanks’ “A Man Called Otto.”

Studio chief Tom Rothman introduced the reel, heralding that the

Morbius: Does Spider-Man Exist in This Universe?

Morbius: Does Spider-Man Exist in This Universe?
This article contains Morbius and Spider-Man: No Way Home spoilers.

Given the vagueness of certain things about the Morbius and Venom movies, the post-credits scenes in this weekend’s superhero release are kind of funny. It was already pretty jarring in the first place that Michael Keaton’s Vulture, who was such a memorable villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming, would be teleported for no discernable reason into the universe where Jared Leto’s Morbius, the Living Vampire, exists. Stranger still is how unfazed Keaton’s Adrian Toomes is about never seeing his wife and daughter again. Instead he just wants to team up with a freaking vampire, allegedly “to do some good.”

So all by themselves, the Morbius post-credits scenes are bizarre. But then comes the kicker. When our dear Dr. Michael Morbius asks how he got here, Vulture responds, “I’m not sure, but I think it has something to do with Spider-Man.

Does Morbius Have A Credits Scene? A Spoiler-Free Guide
When the original "Morbius" teaser trailer dropped online in January 2020, no one could have predicted it would take another two years (plus some) for the film itself to arrive. And yet, here we are, with Sony Pictures finally teeing up for the theatrical debut of the latest entry in what's now known simply as Sony's Spider-Man Universe. Yes, at long last, the time has come for the world to meet Jared Leto's living vampire and rascally prankster Dr. Michael Morbius.

A whole lot's happened in the world of Sony's Marvel movies since early 2020, with "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" taking Eddie Brock and Venom's relationship to...

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Mid-Credits Scene Explained

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Mid-Credits Scene Explained
Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead For “Spider-man: No Way Home

Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home” has finally arrived, as is typical with Marvel films, you should stick around after the credits for a little more. But, if you’re here, it probably means you did just that and you have some questions — specifically about that scene with Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock/Venom.

After the post-credits scene in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage,” many hoped that Eddie/Venom would actually meet — if not actually fight — Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in “No Way Home.” Alas, that’s not quite how things went. But, Tom Hardy definitely did set up the MCU’s version of Venom, or something like it.

So here’s what went down. In the mid-credits scene of “No Way Home,” we find Eddie and Venom at a bar. Like the rest of the “No Way Home” villains, Eddie

Topher Grace Really Wanted to Be Part of the ‘Venom 2’ Marketing Campaign (Video)

Topher Grace Really Wanted to Be Part of the ‘Venom 2’ Marketing Campaign (Video)
Before there was Tom Hardy’s Venom, there was Topher Grace. And as it turns out, Grace actually wanted to be part of the marketing strategy for Sony’s latest film about the symbiote.

During an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Grace admitted that he had a pretty concrete idea of what he’d have liked to do, and it involved his “Home Economics” series co-stars. Grace noted that it didn’t happen because “it was like, Sony and Disney, and they couldn’t figure it out,” but he had the concept ready.

“We were all watching the trailer for ‘Venom 2’ and I just wanted my character to be like, not into it,” Grace joked. “So I’m like ‘Who is this guy? Like who is Tom Hardy?'”

Grace added that he’d have then had his co-stars talking up Hardy, touting his Oscar nomination for

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Screenwriters Explain All Those Surprises and Spoilers: ‘This Wasn’t Just Fan Service’

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Screenwriters Explain All Those Surprises and Spoilers: ‘This Wasn’t Just Fan Service’
Spoiler Warning: This story discusses many major plot developments in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” currently playing in theaters. Please do not read if you have not seen the film.

Of the many multiversal pleasures of “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” one of the most satisfying has been how every single person involved — from director Jon Watts to producers Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal to stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Benedict Cumberbatch and Marisa Tomei — managed to keep the movie’s biggest secret: Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were both reprising their roles as Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.

What makes that feat so much more impressive is that everyone expected it to happen. Ever since news leaked that actors like Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina were reprising their roles as various Spider-Man villains — news Molina happily confirmed to Variety back in April — fans across the globe have flooded the

Review: Venom: Let there Be Carnage

Review: Venom: Let there Be Carnage
After Spider-Man’s black suit was revealed to be an alien symbiote, I lost all interest. I have never cared about Venom or Carnage or their symbiote children. The viciousness and exaggerated fangs and tongue are relics of the 1990s that I wish would just go away.

I was not at all surprised Sony went ahead with a Venom movie, but what surprised me was that it received not only good word of mouth but enough box office to receive a sequel. Venom: Let there Be Carnage has the benefit of being mercifully short. As a buddy movie, with the buddies sharing one body, it has some nice lightweight moments that Eddie Brock/Venom (Tom Hardy) plays well enough.

But, when Brock interviews Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) on Death Row, things turn decidedly darker as the red-hued symbiote emerges. There’s mayhem and blood everywhere, but not much sympathy for the newer,

Does Eddie Brock Already Exist In The Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Does Eddie Brock Already Exist In The Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Just think about the time when Marvel fans thought Tom Hardy should play Wolverine. Who would’ve thought he would be the perfect Eddie Brock? Hey, he’s a thousand times better than Eric Foreman from Spider-Man 3 at least. But in all seriousness, it’s really no surprise that Tom Hardy was able to deliver a stellar performance as one of Spider-Man’s biggest enemies. Let’s just appreciate the fact that his performance as the first Venom made us laugh way more than we thought it would. It’s basically Ren and Stimpy if they made a comic book movie.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Post-Credits Scenes, Explained: What They Mean for the Spider-Verse

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Post-Credits Scenes, Explained: What They Mean for the Spider-Verse
[Editor’s note: The following post contains spoilers for “Spider-Man: No Way Home.”]

When Jon Watts’ third standalone Spider-Man film, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” concludes, the Tom Holland-starring mini-franchise has set a course for a brand-new start for the so-called Spider-Verse. Without getting too spoiler-y — which, yes, might be a bit silly when it comes to unpacking the literal last scenes of the film, which we will do below — the film ends with Peter Parker striking out on his own, after convincing Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell to make everyone (everyone) forget who he is.

It’s all in an attempt to stitch a crumbling multiverse back together, after an earlier Strange spell tested the limits of the multiverse, allowing a few baddies (and goodies!) to slip through, resulting in one hell of an adventure for Spider-Man and his best pals. So what happens after all that? The film includes two post-credits scenes that both

Spider-Man: No Way Home's Postcredits Scenes Tease Even More Multiverse Madness
Get ready to swing into the Spider-Verse, because Spider-Man: No Way Home is finally here! Marvel fans suspected for months that Spider-Man: No Way Home would contain connections to the Sony Spider-Man franchises through the multiverse, and when the movie dropped on Dec. 17, they found out they were right. Both Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire suit up as their versions of Peter Parker in the new movie. Plus, villains from Garfield and Maguire's movies like Dr. Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina), Sandman (Thomas Haden Church), Electro (Jamie Foxx), and the Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) also had comeback roles in No Way Home.

Throughout Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) struggles against evil outside forces from other universes to save New York City, all while dealing with the angst of being a typical teenager. Unfortunately, to save his universe this time he has to let Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch

10 Best Video Games Featuring Venom, Ranked (According to Metacritic)

Though Spider-Man has one of the most beloved rogues galleries in all of Marvel Comics, few of Peter Parker's enemies have proven to be as dynamic as the Venom symbiote. First introduced in the Secret Wars arc as Spider-Man's black suit, Venom has since transitioned between rage-filled killer, dangerous anti-hero, and full-on Avenger.

Venom's complex history and motivations may be most evident in Marvel comics, but he's also been featured in several video games. Most of them have centered on Eddie Brock's earlier villainous stints as Venom, but he's also available as a playable hero from time to time as well.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Post-Credits Scene Explained

Spider-Man: No Way Home Post-Credits Scene Explained
This article contains significant Spider-Man: No Way Home spoilers.

Going into this event movie weekend, there were a whole lot of fan theories and guesses at what the post-credits scene would be in Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: No Way Home. Would the worst kept secret in the world—that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were coming back for another inter-dimensional Spidey adventure—give way to extra cameos from Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson and Emma Stone as a resurrected Gwen Stacy? Could it be revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange had been Mephisto all along? Or, my personal favorite, would Bruce Campbell finally show up as the Doctor Strange of the Raimiverse?!

So many theories and so much speculation, which all turned out to be for naught when the one actual post-credits scene in the movie—or mid-credits, if we’re being technical—involves not a single character who

The Matrix Resurrections: Tom Hardy’s Potential Surprise Cameo Revealed

The Matrix Resurrections: Tom Hardy’s Potential Surprise Cameo Revealed
There’s already so much to look forward to in regards to The Matrix Resurrections, our first Matrix movie in almost two decades, and that’s without taking a potential Tom Hardy cameo into account. Venom 2 was filming in San Francisco at the same time as The Matrix Resurrections, with helicopters from Matrix production even making it into the background of the final Venom 2 edit, but what about the reverse? Will we see any hints of Venom 2 production in The Matrix Resurrections? Actually, we may even see Eddie Brock himself…

Well, not the character of Venom, but the actor behind the role. According to Matrix Resurrections star Jessica Henwick, who plays Bugs in the new film, Hardy stopped by during production and popped into the background of one of the scenes being filmed, alongside Henwick.
