    When one comes across such iconic characters with a specific profile, it is not surprising that something like this happens, at least at the time when Henry Cavill considered playing the quintessential British spy. Now we have Daniel Craig, an interpreter who has broken the mold a bit, but in his day all the actors who managed to take the role of James Bond were cut by the same pattern. There are the dark ones and certainly slim Pierce Brosnan or Timothy Dalton, perfect examples of what was sought in casting. Perhaps this is the reason why Cavill did not take the comments that he received after his audition for the role, a long time ago. It is not the first time that this actor, who in the update gives life to characters as recognizable as Superman or the protagonist of ‘The Witcher’, talks about what happened when he ran into the juicy opportunity. Craig also showed up at that screen test and we already know how the matter ended. For his part, Cavill was 21 years old and...

    Last Friday, July 23, Netflix released the first season of a new series of He-man and the Masters of the Universe with a new subtitle: Revelation, all from the hand of the great writer and producer Kevin Smith. The trailers pointed to ways that something new and fresh was coming to this group of characters that, except for the original series and the live-action version of the Cannon production company, had not been very successful (the film is not that it was a marvel, but The fact of seeing Dolph Lundgren as the protagonist: He-Man deeply penetrated). Starting from the aforementioned animated series from the 80s, Netflix and Kevin Smith start from the end of it to endow the characters and Eternia itself with a depth that until now lacked. We cannot forget that the Masters of the Universe started out as only Mattel dolls and finally derived from them an animated series where the toys used by thousands of children around the world were seen interacting. I am not going to deny that the connection with the original...

    Whenever the writer, director, or star of a major franchise tries to sell fans on the idea that “no one is safe,” many fans tend to roll their eyes. The concept of “no one is safe” rarely applies equally to its leads until the end of the series, the last movie in a franchise, or when an actor fulfills their contract. So for the most part, the emotional deaths often fall upon villains or beloved secondary characters like Guardians of the Galaxy’s Yondu. (While their deaths were emotional in execution, Iron Man and Black Widow were both protected by plot armor until well into Avengers: Endgame.) But The Suicide Squad director James Gunn insists that really, no one in The Suicide Squad is safe. Hide That assertion comes courtesy of Empire Magazine’s cover story on Gunn’s first foray into the DC Comics universe. In comparing the characters in Guardians of the Galaxy—his Marvel franchise—and The Suicide Squad, he explained how the dynamics between those teams differed.
