CANDYMAN Director Is Heading To The MCU With CAPTAIN MARVEL 2

Nia DaCosta

This is major news even while the world waits to see her remake of CANDYMAN it has just been announced that Nia DaCosta will take over the directing reigns for Marvel Studios CAPTAIN MARVEL 2.

DaCosta takes over for Anne Bowden and Ryan Fleck, who directed the first pic to massive box office success which stars Brie Larson as the former Air Force Pilot turned Kree Warrior turned Avenger.  Marvel is known for switching up its directors on its popular franchises like THOR, IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA to give the next installment a fresh voice, and had been meeting with candidates for the past couple of months.

Megan McDonnell, a staff writer on the Marvel-based series WandaVision, penned the script for the Captain Marvel sequel. DaCosta is said to have had the edge over other directors that met with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige.

DaCosta has been on the rise since directing the critically acclaimed indie film LITTLE WOODS. The world is yet to see her retelling of  CANDYMAN as its release was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Justice League images 40 600x456

As the anticipation continues to build for the arrival of the Synder cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE on HBO Max, fans where treated to a new clip thanks to director Zack Synder via JusticeCon.

We have seen behind the scenes shots of both the suit and Henry Cavill in it but now we have a bit of the film to go along with it. In the scene apparently we are seeing the first interaction between the Man of Steel and Bruce Wayne’s guardian, confidant and butler, Alfred played by Jeremy Irons.

There is not honestly much much here to dissect but be sure as more bits and pieces are revealed you will be able to hear about it here.

ef80a1df-07090_rv2.jpg

In another day filled with theatrical release push backs the much anticipated SPIDER- MAN FAR FROM HOME sequel has once again fallen victim to the new slate dates.

Even though the change isnt as bad as others, the film has moved from November 5, 2021 to December 17,2021. Sony announced the move on Thursday night after a shakeup of Disney’s film slate was unveiled earlier in the day. The “Far From Home” sequel will take the spot formerly held by “Avatar 2,” which was pushed back a year to Dec. 16, 2022.

Just in case you need a reminder the third film with Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man was originally supposed to hit theaters on July 16, 2021 but due to the coronavirus pandemic was pushed back earlier this year in April.

Sony Pictures noted that the latest delay was only part of the domestic release calendar, leaving its international release in question.

 

THE NEW MUTANTS SDCC @ HOME Panel

THE NEW MUTANTS panel is moderated by Ira Madison III and brought to everyone via IGN.

Ira introduces first director Josh Boone and then the rest of the cast Maisie Williams, Anna Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Henry Zaga and Blu Hunt.  The cast was first introduced to their characters in emoji form which can be activated via twitter using hashtags.

They are later joined by Bill Sienkiewicz, Eisner award winning artist who was responsible for the art of the characters which we have found out is heavily referenced throughout the movie. He thanks Josh Boone and the cast for their creativity.

When asked by ira about the inspiration for the film and the curse of the Demon Bear, Josh Boone said that he had finished making THE FAULT IN THEIR STARS and always loved the demon bear run in the new mutants. He had been a fan and it stuck out. He talks about how he used to sit with a stack and reading them back in his apartment in LA knowing one day he would make it.

Maisie Williams says she is in love with the fan base from the superhero roles when asked about coming from one massive franchise fan base to another.

Anna Taylor-Joy was asked about excelling at playing misunderstood characters how was it being a more domineering character and how fun was it doing the action scenes. “Yeah big time. Magik was the first character i had that stomped into a room I’ve never experienced that.”

Fans along with contests to enter to win amazing posters were treated to the AMAZING opening scene of the film itself.

Though it was believed that an announcement would have been made about the films instant arrival on streaming, it was instead announced about another contests for fans to attend an advanced screening and the film is still slated for a theatrical release on August 28th of this year.
