An intriguing new rumour hints at the timeframe of the Black Widow movie. Todd Phillips gives us a new look at Joker. The Birds of Prey movie has a release date. Plus, what’s to come on The Gifted, set pictures from X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and a new clip from Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. Spoilers now!
Director James Wan recently explained to Screen Rant why Atlanteans must vomit seawater before coming onto dry land.
People would ask me, you know, “So when they talk, is it bubbles that come out of their mouth?” And I’m like, “No because there’s no air in your lungs, so there wouldn’t be any bubbles.” Right? So then in that sequence where you saw Mera open up this air pocket… when [Orm] lands in that, he’s breathing air. The first thing he does is, he’s in an air pocket, so he’d puke out all the water that’s in his lungs. So that’s the first step. We think about all these little details and stuff like that. And then when he’s screaming [when the water returns], we want bubbles coming out of his mouth because now there’s actually air in his lungs.
A new rumour from Marvel Cosmic alleges that, of all things, the Y2K bug will somehow, for some reason, factor into the Black Widow solo film’s plotline.
