Rachel McAdams To Return For Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to arrive in a couple of years’ time, with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange confirmed to be teaming up with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch to traverse alternate dimensions. Fans have been wondering, though, will Rachel McAdams be brought back for the sequel, after she played the good doctor’s girlfriend Christine Palmer in the 2016 origins movie?

We Got This Covered has heard that the answer to this is a resounding yes. Multiple sources – the same ones who revealed that an Aladdin sequel is in development, and that Ewan McGregor is reprising his role as Obi-Wan, both of which were confirmed this week – have informed us that McAdams is set to return for the film. Of course, things could change as the script and the story are continually developed before shooting, but as of now, we’ve been told that Dr.

Best of Frightfest: ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Dirs. Robert Rodriguez & Frank Miller

Best of Frightfest: As the twentieth anniversary of Arrow Video Frightfest approaches, we at team Thn take a look back at some of the best and brightest films that have screened over the last two decades. Today we look at the divisive Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

It is no wonder that it can be a little difficult to find people who have a similar amount of affection for the Sin City sequel that they do for the original. Coming out a whole nine years after the 2005 original, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had been held in production limbo for a frustrating amount of time. While the original certainly has fans and was deemed a success critically and commercially, there’s no denying that the nine year gap was never going to do the sequel any favours. And while A Dame to Kill For certainly isn

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness Director May Be Teasing House Of M

Ah, to be involved with Marvel Studios right now. After concluding a trilogy of phases over the course of ten years, our favorite superhero movie-house is set to crank the ridiculousness meter up to 11 with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is said to be the first pure horror film of the series. While not much is known about the actual plot of the pic just yet, that hasn’t stopped director Scott Derrickson from dropping the odd hint or two on his Twitter feed.

Earlier today, the filmmaker tweeted a still from one of Doctor Strange’s comics, which features the titular hero staring at a small, little baby universe, created right in front of him. He seems baffled and astonished, since the good doctor thought it was just a light, I guess. The panel is preceded by a quote of some Jimi Hendrix lyrics: “Are you experienced?

Julie Delpy Made a Genetic Thriller and Riz Ahmed Is a Heavy Metal Drummer: Tiff Platform Highlights

The fall movie season may be associated with awards season buzz, but for the past five years, the Toronto International Film Festival’s Platform section has provided a welcome alternative. The juried program is a tightly curated selection of international films, with a blend of debuts and established filmmakers moving in new directions. In a typically sprawling Tiff lineup, it’s the clearest path to discovery.

It’s also the place where buyers will want to spend a lot of time this year. All 10 films in this year’s Platform section are entering the festival without North American distribution. “I think these are all juicy for buyers,” Tiff co-head Cameron Bailey said.

But don’t expect a lot of obvious commercial material. Instead, this year’s Platform could be a referendum on just how much buyers are willing to jump on unexpected crowdpleasers, riskier options, and foreign-language offerings.

Here’s How Eva Green Could Look As Nightmare In Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

The Sorcerer Supreme will be returning in just a couple of years to save the Earth from mystical threats, as his upcoming sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was confirmed earlier this month at Comic-Con. We know that Benedict Cumberbatch’s magic man will be joined by Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch for the movie, which should be an exciting new pairing in the McU, but we don’t yet know who’ll they’ll be teaming up to defeat.

However, all the signs are pointing to Nightmare serving as Doctor Strange 2‘s main villain. The comic book character is the demonic ruler of the Dream Dimension, which could explain the horror movie influences that we’ve been told to expect from the pic. He’s a lesser-known foe from the Marvel universe, though, so the filmmakers should have freedom to do what they like with him. Like

Eva Green Is Nightmare in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Fan-Made Poster

Eva Green Is Nightmare in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Fan-Made Poster
We're still waiting to find out who will be cast as Nightmare in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but we do have one good candidate for the job. This, thanks to artist BossLogic, who has rendered up a fan poster depicting actress Eva Green as the Marvel baddie, who is set to be the one giving the Sorcerer Supreme a very tough time in the upcoming sequel. For the moment, this is merely a potentially interesting casting choice. But could there be more to it?

First off, the poster BossLogic cooked up is rather impressive. It's largely black and white, with the only real hint of color in Nightmare's eyes, which are the character's signature green. Eva Green looks haunting at the poster's center, with Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) on either side. The artist had this to say in his caption.

Will Dormammu Return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?

Will Dormammu Return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?
At long last, a sequel to Doctor Strange is officially on the way with the recently announced Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. While not much, specifically, has been revealed since the project was announced at San Diego Comic-Con as part of Marvel Studios' Phase 4 reveal, there are a few things we know. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will be teaming up with Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), this is being billed as the first horror movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Nightmare is going to be introduced as a new villain. But will he be the only villain? Or can we expect to see another appearance from an old foe? Specifically, Dormammu.

If Doctor Strange has an arch-nemesis, arguably, it's Dormammu. Unlike Spider-Man or Batman, Strange doesn't have much of a rogues gallery of villains. Many of his foes over the years have been monster-of-the-week types, with only

Win Dumbo on Blu-ray

To mark the release of Dumbo on 29th July, we’ve been given 5 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland.

‘Bond 25’: How a New 007 Could Shake Up Daniel Craig’s Final Outing

‘Bond 25’: How a New 007 Could Shake Up Daniel Craig’s Final Outing
Lashana Lynch as the new 007 in “Bond 25?” That’s the latest, wild speculation courtesy of The Daily Mail. But, as gimmicky as it seems at first blush, it’s just the kind of shake-up to be expected from director Cary Fukunaga (“Maniac”) and scribe Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who are doing their best to make Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as topical, inclusionary, and memorable as possible.

We already know that Lynch (“Captain Marvel”) plays MI6 agent Nomi, who shadows a retired Bond in Jamaica while CIA buddy Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) tries to recruit him for one last mission. It’s about Bond rescuing a kidnapped scientist (Ana de Armas or David Dencik?), and rumored to involve a genetic engineering scheme hatched by Rami Malek’s baddie. There’s even the supposed return of Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld in a cameo right out of “Silence of the Lambs,
