Spider-Man is Back in the MCU; Sony/Disney to Produce 3rd Holland SM Film


Global Conglomerate A (Sony) and Global Conglomrate B (Disney) are now friends again.

After breaking up because of Disney wanting a hell of a lot more money from future Spider-Man films, Sony walked away from the deal, and the future of Tom Holland's Peter Parker in the MCU was in question.

Now, everything is okay, I guess.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” said Feige in a statement.

Amy "Why are u punishing me" Pascal is equally thrilled. As are the hordes of annoying fans who constantly commented 'BRING SPIDEY BACK TO THE MCU' on every damn Instagram post Sony Pictures made.

The film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021, but you can watch Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse right now on Blu-Ray and digital!

Joker director Todd Phillips blames the 'far left' over the 'outrage' surrounding the movie



In an interview with the Wrap, director Todd Phillips addressed the controversy surrounding the Joker movie. He said that he’s confused to why there is controversy, he doesn’t feel that the film glorifies violence. He said that they didn’t set out to offend anyone.

Part of his statement:

“I think it’s because outrage is a commodity, I think it’s something that has been a commodity for a while. What’s outstanding to me in this discourse in this movie is how easily the far left can sound like the far right when it suits their agenda. It’s really been eye-opening for me.”

Élite star, Danna Paola, has been looking for the guy she gave her wrong number for two years



Translated from Spanish

When Mexican actress and singer, Danna Paola, moved to Spain two years ago to star Netflix hit show, élite, she felt lonely and friendless, spending most of her time walking around the streets of Madrid by herself.

During one of these strolls, she met a random guy named Pablo, but she gave him her wrong phone number accidentally with the last digit being incorrect. He didn’t know she was a celebrity, since at the time she was unknown in Spain, despite having an established career in Mexico.

Ever since she has posted on Instagram, trying to reach Pablo and hoping he’s seen the series and recognizes her and even asking her fans for help. A few days ago, she released a new song called “oye Pablo” (hey Pablo), as her latest attempt to reconnect with him

Have you ever had a star-crossed lover, ONTD?

First reviews and reactions are in for Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman'




The very very anticipated 'The Irishman' from Martin Scorsese, reuniting Robert De Niro (in the title role) with Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, premiered Friday morning at the NY Film Festival, and the first reactions/reviews are in fact glowing (especially for Pacino). The movie duration apparently wasn't an issue, nor was the de-aging CGI, and De Niro and Pacino give their best performances in probably decades.

Stumptown S1x02 Promo - "Missed Connections"



Missed Connections promo
Dex is hired by a wealthy man to search for a woman whom he recently met, but she quickly learns that the task is not as simple as it seems. Meanwhile, Dex and Grey’s history unfolds on “Stumptown,” Wednesday, October 2nd

Cobie Smulders is very watchable

Premise
Dex Parios is a sharp-witted military veteran, who struggles to get by and take care of her younger brother, in Portland, Oregon. She also struggles with PTSD from her time as a Marine in Afghanistan, where she worked in military intelligence until she was injured by an explosion which killed her childhood sweetheart and former lover. Burdened by heavy gambling debts and unable to hold down a steady job, she becomes a private investigator to solve problems where the police cannot get involved. Detective Miles Hoffman refers problems to her, and Grey McConnell, a bar owner and Dex's closest friend, provides moral support and employs her brother Ansel at his bar.

. Robin Scherbatsky from HIMYM and Maria Hill from MCU plays Dex the war veteran private investigator
. Nick Miller from New Girl plays Grey the bar owner and Dex friend without benefits
. Derrick from The Good Wife (plus hot love interest in Beyonce Halo) plays Detective Miles
. Ellenor from The Practice plays Miles boss Lt. Cosgrove
. Alice from Wind River (Jeremy Renner film) plays the casino owner who is large small and in charge, and she’s also the mother of Dex deceased b/f

On the plus side, it has a lot of females in charge (Dex is the lead character, Tantoo Cardinal is the head of the casino, Camryn Manheim is the police Lieutenant, representation of the tribes in Oregon, Dex brother is played by irl actor with Downs Syndrome, chemistry of actors is pretty good. First ep was highly rated (critics) tho it was a wee clunky in places. And, it has a sitcom lead-in with Ontd fave Leighton Meester.

On the down side, it’s up against the Wednesday prime time NBC Chicago XYZ-trifecta, it's on ABC, it's on at 10PM (eastern)

Ontd did you watch what did you think are you here for Robin Scherbatsky to ditch the comedy and embrace her Maria Hill drama action-y role?

Fiona Apple on Lil Nas X Sampling Her Song: 'Where's My Money?’



Fiona Apple wants Lil Nas X to pay up.
Lil Nas X sampled "Every Single Night" on "Kim Jung," a record from his 2018 mixtape Nasarati. 
It doesn't appear to be available on any streaming services.
It's unclear if Lil Nas X has pocketed any money from the track. 

"One thing that the lovely Rachel Handler didn’t mention that I did say in the interview which I would just like to say now is that Lil Nas X—you’re probably really great, but you used my song 'Every Single Night' (2012), too. You sampled that song, too, in a song called 'Kim Jong Un,' I think. And, um, hey, where’s my money, you cute little guy? Where’s my money?"

awwwwww

ONTD, first of all, hi!!!!! I missed you! We're back!!! So, question time! Did you watch last night's herstory-making premiere? Do you think the show is back in full(ish) form? Did you enjoy Ian McShane-as-Harvey Weinstein (I sure did, he was glorious)? What did you think about the changes in the lives of our faves? As a Carisi stan, I'm cautiously optimistic but also a little apprehensive (he needs more screentime! /stan). Still, I totally appreciate the broadening of the show's world with the inclusion of more characters (women of color? In New York City? Well I never!) Lastly, ONTD, I love you, and I love these posts, and may we have a fun Season 21 <333
