“Spider-Man: Far From Home” Theory: Mysterio Could Have a Tie to Doctor Strange



The first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home has debuted this week. And some fans have been already speculating about the first look at the film’s foe, Mysterio.

The final moments in the trailer saw Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) showing up during a battle between Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Hydro-Man. When Mysterio began to fight off Hydro-Man, his hands seemed to be emitting green runes.

For some eagle-eyed Marvel fans, the design of those runes looks familiar. They seem to resemble those used by Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

So, could there be any connection between the two magic-using characters?

In the comics, Quentin Beck doesn’t actually have any kind of superpowers or abilities, but pretends that he does through a series of well-planned special effects. Among these tools that Mysterio uses to pull off these illusions is a holographic projector, allowing him to create 3D projections.

As some fans have begun to speculate, there is a very good chance that Mysterio is just putting on a similar sort of ruse throughout Far From Home. And that he’s actually the one controlling Hydro-Man and the other Elementals. This would also allow him to essentially court favor with Spider-Man and everyone in S.H.I.E.L.D., as he comes out of the battle looking like a hero.

If that’s the case – and depending on how far Mysterio is going with his ruse – there is a chance that he could somehow already know what the powers of these in the Mystic Arts look like.

This would allow him to duplicate that look in some way. So that he could appear like less of a threat for S.H.I.E.L.D. as well as Spider-Man.

But again, there’s a chance that Mysterio actually has some sort of magic abilities, which he is using to orchestrate his whole ruse. Considering the rumblings that Mysterio might end up being Peter’s SHIELD-assigned partner in the movie, it could very well be that Quentin Beck had just enough magical prowess to get on the organization’s radar. And that he is just using it for bad.

After all, magic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has already used a similar style to Doctor Strange’s runes – both with Ghost Rider on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Karnak in Inhumans. So there is a chance that Mysterio’s magic looking a bit like Doctor Strange could be nothing more than a coincidence.

So, do you think the magic of Mysterio has a connection to Doctor Strange so far? Share with us in the comments!

In the meantime, other upcoming MCU films include Captain Marvel on March 8, Avengers: Endgame on April 26, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5 this year.


“Avengers: Endgame” Cast and Directors Issues Spoiler Warning for Fans




Avengers: Endgame officially rolls out into theaters tomorrow, and fans all across the world are preparing accordingly – including being wary of spoilers. If you are among those who want to be kept in the dark about the upcoming blockbuster, it sounds like the franchise star Robert Downey Jr. has your back.

The Iron Man star recently took to his Twitter to join the chorus of Marvel cast and crew members asking fans to not “Spoil the Endgame,” on social media or otherwise. Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the film, utilized the meme of Captain America’s PSAs in Spider-Man: Homecoming as a way to steer fans away from leaking details about the film.

Admittedly, there’s a weird sort of irony in Downey’s anti-spoiler PSA, as the Endgame directors have hinted that Downey was probably the only actor to know the entire story of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame going in.

But even then, the possibility of accidentally finding Avengers: Endgame spoilers has been surprisingly intense in recent weeks, thanks to partial and even entire leaks of the film popping up online.

“I think this has even more spoilers than the last one,” co-director Joe Russo explained in an interview with Box Office Pro.

“This is a culture that wants everything. And now it is getting worse. As the world is connected via social media, and information travels within seconds. If you have been following along with this narrative for ten years, you are going to want to protect yourself. It is best to go in clean. So I encourage people to go opening weekend because I am sure everything is going to hit the Internet the moment the movie his the screen.”

The Russo Brothers also shared a meme which sees Doctor Strange (star Benedict Cumberbatch) peering into more than 14 million futures to witness how Endgame unfolds. But in the end, the master of the mystic arts spoils none of it.

Following Infinity War’s anti-spoiler campaign, #ThanosDemandsYourSilence, the Russos have since issued a new plea: #DontSpoilTheEndgame.

“For all of you who’ve been on this journey with us since the very beginning, and sharing every high and low with your own family, friends, classmates, and your co-workers. That investing so deeply in every character and storyline. Cheering. Laughing. Shedding tears. And giving so freely of your thoughts and emotions in spirited dialogue, fan art, theories, and also fan fiction. Please know that two of us, along with everyone involved in Endgame, have worked tirelessly for the last 3 years with the sole intention of delivering a surprising and emotionally powerful conclusion to this Infinity Saga,” Joe and Anthony Russo wrote in a letter, addressing to Marvel Studios’ legion of worldwide fans.

“As so many of you have invested your time, hearts, and souls into these stories, once again we are asking for your help. When you see Avengers: Endgame in the coming weeks, please do not spoil it for others, the same way you would not want it spoiled for you. Remember, Thanos still demands your silence.”

Captain Marvel is now playing in select theaters. Avengers: Endgame opens on April 26. Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres on July 2.

“Avengers” Directors Revealed the Only Actor to Get Entire Scripts




Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame are definitely two of the biggest movies in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, bringing together all of the superheroes virtually that have appeared in the series thus far. A slight complication to having such a massive roster of superheroes is that the more people who know the story, the more chance there are for that story to be spoiled.

Recently, during an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, while recalling the experience that brought the two films to life, directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed that Robert Downey Jr., who birthed the MCU with his character Iron Man in 2008, is likely the only actor in the MCU to have read the films’ entire scripts.

“Probably [Robert Downey Jr.] was the only one actually to read the entire scripts,” Joe admitted. “I think Benedict [Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange] got the scripts that included his scenes only. And [Chris] Evans might have read the whole script.”

You can watch the full video below.

While some people might think this is a complex way to make a movie, ultimately it’s done to allow each actor to have the freedom of ignorance, because if they do not know the entire story, they do not have to worry about letting key details slip out.

“Part of our motivation to do this is it just takes a lot of pressure off of people,” Anthony shared. “I mean, it’s hard to constantly censor yourself about what you are saying, or how you talk because these films are your whole life. “It is everything you are doing all day long; the inclination is to talk about it. And so we take a lot of pressure off of people just by saying, ‘Okay, the less you know, the less you’ll have to mind yourself.’”

In the larger scope of Infinity War, with various characters on their own journeys, it made the actors only having their isolated dialogued easier for the talent, with the filmmakers nothing this strategy continued through Endgame, in spite of the movie featuring the characters interacting with another more in the wake of Thanos’ deadly snap.

“Thor, [Chris] Hemsworth’s character, does not need to know what Captain America is doing for most of Infinity War. Hemsworth reads his scenes, and Evans read his scenes. So if they do not read the rest of the movie, they do not know what is going on with it, and it makes it easier to have conversations with people,” confirmed Joe. “So we kept it going through, even more so, with Endgame. There’re more secrets in Endgame than there’re in Infinity War.”

Though there are many complications that come with this shooting strategy, the benefit ultimately goes to the audiences, because the chances of anything being spoiled is reduced immensely.

“It’s a more tedious way to work, to be honest, because we have to do more discussion on set about context because they do not have the entirety of the script to rely on,” Anthony explained. “You have to work harder in order to work this way, but we do believe it is worth it because the payoff is a special experience in the movie theater for all the audiences.”

The secrets of Avengers: Endgame will be unveiled when it lands in theaters on April 26.

“Avengers: Endgame” Breaks Record for Biggest Opening Day Ever in China




The wait for Avengers: Endgame is finally over. The blockbuster is starting to trickle into theaters across the globe, giving Marvel fans the film they have been talking about for the past decade. While Endgame does not open in North America until Thursday night, it’s currently concluding its opening day over in China where it is delivering a massive haul. There will likely be several records broken by Avengers: Endgame over the next couple months, and it took just one day to check the first milestone off the list.

Avengers: Endgame has officially set the record for the biggest opening day in Chinese box office history.

According to early estimates from Deadline, the film has earned a whopping $107 million after debuting in China, including $28.1 million from midnight screenings. That also knocks off the previous champion Monster Hunt 2, which released last year.

At this rate, China will likely match, or possibly even surpass, the opening weekend haul for the United States. Initial estimates even suggested that Endgame could deliver an opening weekend between $250 and $280 million. However, these estimates are now starting to rise, with some believing it could reach the $300 million mark.

That is the goal for the United States opening weekend as well. Meanwhile, the current domestic opening record belongs to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which earned more than $257 million in its first three days. Avengers: Endgame will easily smash that mark when it arrives this weekend. Still, the only question remaining is just how far it can go.

Certainly, it helps Avengers: Endgame that the critical reviews have been so overwhelmingly positive early on. After the embargo lifted on Tuesday night, Avengers: Endgame quickly became Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a %97 score. It is a hit with critics as well as the box office, setting it up for a massive theatrical run.

So, how much do you think Endgame will make in the opening weekend? Could it pass Avatar and become the highest grossing movie of all time? Let us know in the comments!

“Avengers: Endgame” Officially Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes




Earlier in the night, the reviews for Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame started surfacing, and just like that, the movie has earned its first major distinction. Moments ago, Rotten Tomatoes announced that Avengers: Endgame was Certified Fresh at 98%, the same score it debuted with 85 reviews submitted. Since it has been Certified Fresh, the film has dropped 1% point, now hovering at 97% along with 89 reviews submitted as of this writing.

Out of those 89 reviews submitted, only three are “rotten.” There is one dissenting opinion that says the film is disappointing as a “direct result of Infinity War being so great” while others say the film is interrupted by “faux-improvised humor” throughout.

At 97% Certified Fresh, Avengers: Endgame is now tied with Black Panther for becoming the highest-rated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the review-aggregating site. It is the 20th “Certified Fresh” film from Marvel Studios with the only two flicks not earning this honor include Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk.

Endgame is set to make unprecedented money at the box office, with some reports suggest the movie could earn upwards of $1 billion worldwide during its debut outing. Meanwhile, the current global opening record is held by Avengers: Infinity War, which made $647.5 in its opening weekend.

Entire “Avengers: Endgame” Film Leaks Online on Piracy Networks




We’re officially at Defcon 1 when it comes to Avengers: Endgame spoilers flooding the Internet. Not only has the movie now screened for the select press (people now living in the separate universe of spoilery details), but Endgame has also now leaked online, on several key piracy networks.

A new report digs into the incident, turning up that the leaked copy of Avengers: Endgame did come from a Chinese theatrical screening. At the time of writing this, Endgame has already had a record-breaking opening in China, so it means that there are literally hundreds of thousands of potential culprits, especially when it comes to who recorded the film and then uploaded it online.

Chinese users have been passing Endgame around in a 1.2G file along with peer-to-peer networks, and it has since made its way overseas to American torrent networks. Obviously, the exact links and locations to that file will NOT be posted here. However, before you are about to go looking (those few of you masochistic enough to do so), you definitely should be warned: you probably will not like what you find. All reports state that the version of Endgame that leaked is a pretty crappy one. As Variety reports:

However, per TorrentFreak’s report, the quality of that pirated copy is really bad. ‘The image constantly flickers throughout,’ the site quoted a source as saying. ‘It is semi-rotated and littered throughout with watermarks for a gambling site that spin around the screen.

Still, this is not the first big leak to hit Avengers: Endgame. In fact, last week, a 5-minute clip of spoilery Endgame footage hit the Internet and made big waves, as it was the first real insight into the movie that fans and industry figures had seen. Many fans swore off watching it, but as always, there were those shameless trolls that had to spread to footage around like they were that crazy dude in Bird Box, trying to make people see.

Throughout the onslaught of spoiler drops, Marvel Studios and Avengers: Endgame directors The Russo Brothers have steadily maintained the “#DontSpoilTheEndgame” mantra, constantly reminding viewers to preserve the experience for other Marvel fans. As the first Endgame early reactions from critics, the less you know about this film going in, the more epic the experience of seeing it. Take note!

“Avengers: Endgame” Box Office Projections Closing In On Record-Shattering, Near $1 Billion Global Launch




Big things are highly expected of Avengers: Endgame when the film finally hits theaters, including a monumental opening weekend at the box office. Endgame has already broken records in regards to advance tickets sales, which is even more impressive when you consider Infinity War’s impressive record-breaking status. Though Avengers: Endgame seemingly is poised to not just defeat Infinity War in advance ticket sales, but also in its opening weekend box office according to new projections.

These early projections are incredibly promising, as Endgame is expected to launch out of the gate with an $850 million worldwide box office in total (via The Hollywood Reporter). The movie is predicted to debut with $270 to $300 million domestically when it hits North America’s 4,600 theaters. If Endgame manages to land in that projected range (or even better), it’ll likely surpass a billion in just less than a week, which is honestly just crazy.

To put that into perspective, Avengers: Infinity War holds the biggest opening ever at $640.5 million as well as the biggest domestic opening with $257.6 million. Globally it does not even seem like a close race, as it’s also launching in China with the rest of the markets, unlike last year’s Infinity War. The upcoming Endgame is expected to premiere in China with around $250 million as compared to Infinity War’s $191 million. But we will wait and see if that actually happens.

Domestic though will be a closer race. That is because Endgame will have fewer showings than Infinity War did due to its increased run time. While Infinity War took 2 hours and 29 minutes, Endgame clocks in at 3 hours and 58 seconds. To be fair, we still do not think this will be much of an issue, but it might make the debuts much closer than expected.

Avengers: Infinity War ended up bringing in $2,048,359,754 billion at the box office once all was said and done. And Avengers: Endgame will likely exceed that number, though we are not sure by how much. If the flick is as good as early reactions are indicating, it should have no probable surpassing Infinity War.

Avengers: Endgame officially hits theaters on April 26.

“Avengers: Endgame” Cast Sings A Marvel Version of “We Didn’t Start The Fire” Featuring Stan Lee Tribute




Leading up to the forthcoming release of Avengers: Endgame in theaters, on Monday, the cast of this blockbuster stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing their iteration of “We Didn’t Start The Fire,” and it is about as glorious as you would expect. Doing the best cover of the Billy Joel 1989 history-filled hit, the majority of original Avengers – alongside new additions like Brie Larson, Danai Guira, and Paul Rudd – were on hand to send their hearts out.

Enjoy the comic strip mash-up above.

Last year, right before Avengers: Infinity War debuted, the cast also spoofed the classic Brady Bunch opening credits in a bit to hype the film. The video has since been viewed more than 21 million times. And this year on the show, with Avengers: Endgame about to smash into theaters, the cast parodied and danced to the tune of Billy Joel, turning it into a tribute to the late Stan Lee.

Just like last time, Robert Downey Jr. starring Iron Man leads the band. He sings lyrics like, “Tony Stark, Iron Man, Nick Fury has a plan.” Marvel villains also get their turn in the spotlight. Groot and Goose the cat nail their brief appearances which are especially good, yet the ending will have you saying “awww.” And the lump-in-throat moment comes at the end as the special tribute to Lee forms out of nowhere.

In a move that is sure to tug at the heartstrings of Marvel fans, the video finishes with a mosaic of Stan Lee. Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo previously confirmed that Lee’s cameo in this latest Avengers flick was the last one he filmed.

Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, with Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Karen Gillan (Nebula), and Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon).

Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on April 26.

First “Avengers: Endgame” Reactions Arrive Online




Earlier this evening, the highly-anticipated world premiere of Avengers: Endgame took place in Los Angeles, alongside the first reactions of the film have started flooding social media. As expected, the responses are overwhelmingly positive, with some even going the length of calling Endgame the best superhero film ever released.

Leading up to this weekend, various reports of suggested monstrous box office tracking amounts, with some analysts thinking the Marvel film could crack $300 million domestically during its opening weekend. The biggest domestic opening of all time currently belongs to last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which brought $257 million over the course of its debut outing last May.

“It is unprecedented territory,” Boxoffice chief analyst Shawn Robbins expressed. “The numbers that are out floating round out there no matter where you look. It is on a level that I do not even think the most optimistic and/or sort of expected. It feels pretty reasonable, if there’s such a thing, to say that it will set a new record at this point.

Meanwhile, Brandon Davis from Comicbook also shared his feelings.

Avengers: Endgame is an astonishing and amazing film. I have never seen anything like it. The movie is everything I wanted to be and SO much more. Amazing.

While watching Endgame, I laughed so loud, then I clapped with so much force, and I cried so hard. This movie exceeds every expectation and is the perfect culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

“I just cannot remember a cinematic experience like the one I just had with Endgame. Simply blown away. I feel like the movie was made for every Marvel fan, everywhere.”

Fandango managing editor Erik Davis also said the film was really emotional, so get your tissues ready.

Avengers: Endgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story but expands upon it. You will learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Avengers: Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending!

Do not go in expecting Infinity War part II. The two films are so different, yet compliment each other in all the best ways. In terms of which MCU film to watch beforehand… honestly, all of them. What an experience – what an accomplishment,” he wrote.

Not going to spoil anything at all, but I’ll say I laughed, I cried, I cried, I cheered, and I laughed, I cried again and the entire audience gave it a massive standing ovation. Then I cried again. Be ready, kids. Be. Ready.”

“Imagine the best possible version of Avengers: Endgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It is the most emotional and most epic MCU film. A tribute to 10 years of the universe and holy sh*t the great fan service in this movie. Sooooo good.” Peter Sciretta from SlashFilm also said.

Keep scrolling down to see what people are saying about Avengers: Endgame, which officially hits theaters on April 26.

“Avengers: Endgame” Estimated to Have Already Sold Over $120 Million in Presale Tickets




It is no secret by now that this weekend’s Avengers: Endgame is going to be a massive blockbuster at the box office. This culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already prepared to smash several different records, including its opening weekend, and possibly the overall worldwide box office title. The film is poised to make all of the money. Actually, Endgame is already a box office behemoth in spite of not yet playing on a single screen. The presale tickets for this Marvel’s latest are absolutely staggering.

According to Deadline, recent sources are estimating that Avengers: Endgame has already sold more than $120 million in presale tickets across retailers as well as theater companies.

Meanwhile, other sources believe the number is even coming higher, potentially reaching the $140 million thresholds.

However, these numbers are not official by any means. And there’s no guarantee that all of the tickets already sold are for the movie’s opening weekend; however, this does align with similar situations at the box office. It was previously estimated that Star Wars: The Force Awakens had sold around $100 million in presales ahead of its debut back in 2015, and the movie went on to score $247.9 million in the opening weekend. Though that was the record at the time, now Avengers: Endgame is set to pass it this weekend, especially considering Marvel’s latest blockbuster has easily topped The Force Awakens in just presales.

As of now, it looks like Endgame could not only break last year’s Infinity War but could even become the first movie ever to make $300 million in its domestic debut. With that in mind, it is not a stretch to think Endgame could be the film that even takes out Avatar as the highest grossing film in Marvel history.

Following its debut back in 2009, James Cameron’s Avatar did ride the waves of groundbreaking visual effects and exceptional word of mouth, taking the top spot in the all-time box office rankings. According to Box Office Mojo report, Avatar earned a whopping $2,787,965,087 by the time it was all said and done. If there was ever a film to take out Avatar, it should be Avengers: Endgame.

So, have you already got your tickets for the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame? The film hits theaters on April 26!
