Which Avenger Will Make The Ultimate Sacrifice In Endgame

Which Avenger Will Make The Ultimate Sacrifice In Endgame Before Infinity War, real and permanent death among heroes was rare in the MCU, but now as we stare down Endgame, it seems to be more of a possibility than ever before, and many of our favorite characters might not escape it this time. So it’s time to talk odds.

If you really wanted to predict possible outcomes like Doctor Strange meditating over the Time Stone, you could say that Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, can absolutely die in just her second film. You could argue that she’s the best candidate to go toe to toe with Thanos while the other surviving Avengers are working on their secret plan to undo the snap.

Being in the line of fire would place her in clear mortal danger. And it could be poetic that Carol, who only just arrived back on Earth, would sacrifice herself like the space god she is. You could even argue that, since there are more than two decades separating Endgame and Captain Marvel, Carol wouldn’t really even be “dead.” Marvel could keep churning out movies set in the intervening years.

You’d be wrong. Carol is the vanguard leading the charge into a new age of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She’ll stick around, and her chance of survival is very high.

Everyone’s favorite raccoon with Bradley Cooper’s voice is already in a pretty bad spot when Endgame begins. He’s on an unfamiliar planet, far from home. As far as he knows, he’s the only surviving member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and, most importantly, he watched his best friend Groot crumble to dust before his eyes. Rocket and Thor had a conversation in Infinity War about how hard you fight when it seems you’ve got nothing left to lose.

For Rocket, that time has arrived.

Rocket and Groot have become sort of unofficial mascots for the comic side of the MCU. With a third Guardians movie on the way, it’s hard to imagine a world in which they don’t both pull through this, even if Rocket does end up having to wear one of those prosthetics he finds so hilarious. His chance of survival? Moderately high.

Endgame’s marketing materials have been very clear about what the surviving heroes’ goal is: “Take it all back…”

That’s a pretty clear mission statement that gives every major character a redemptive arc as they each quest for personal vengeance. Bruce Banner, played by Mark Ruffalo, in particular has a goal.

Endgame will have to address Banner’s sudden inability to handle the Hulk, who has retreated into his host body and refused to fight on behalf of Banner and his friends. This left our heroes at an apparent disadvantage during the Battle of Wakanda. While Banner overcame it, he and the Hulk still have to have a conversation that will resolve in Endgame.

That resolution could ultimately end with the Hulk choked out by Thanos’ tremendous power, but that seems unlikely. Possible remaining romantic tension with Black Widow just gives him too much to do in the MCU besides dying. His chance of survival is moderate. Keep watching the video to see which Avenger will make the ultimate sacrifice in Endgame!

The Real Reason Vikings Is Ending

The Real Reason Vikings Is Ending After six seasons, years of rich historical drama and a great deal of ratings success, what exactly made History decide to axe its flagship show? These are the real reasons why Vikings is finally coming to an end.

Growing up on his parents’ farm in Australia, Travis Fimmel was a million miles away from the bright lights of Hollywood, but a chance encounter with a modeling scout changed the course of his life forever. After a stint working in London, he decided to try his luck Stateside, and according to the Sydney Morning Herald, was offered a contract instantly after, quote, “swaggering barefoot into LA Models.” He quickly became the face of Calvin Klein, but while he made money posing in his underwear, he was also fine-tuning his acting skills.

Fimmel had a number of roles in Australia prior to Vikings, but it was playing the show’s enigmatic lead that brought him international recognition. His intense and often sympathetic portrayal of farmer-turned-Viking leader Ragnar Lothbrok was the true heart of the show, so when the character was killed off in season 4, Vikings entered uncharted territory. According to Forbes writer Erik Kain, it was a gamble that ultimately didn’t pay off.

When Ragnar met his end in season 4, viewers were supposed to get on board with the idea of his sons heading to England to avenge his death. We were introduced to his first-born son, Bjorn, way back in the first season, but we didn’t really get to know the rest of Ragnar’s brood until after the season 4 time jump.

Unfortunately for Hirst, this never really happened. Despite his best efforts, audiences just didn’t seem as interested in watching the antics of Ragnar’s offspring, even when they were hell-bent on avenging the man himself. After new of the show’s end broke,

History ordered a sixth season of Vikings before season 5 had even begun. At the time, nobody knew that the sixth season would be the last, but the decision to cancel the show seems to have been influenced (at least in part) by a decline in viewership. Following the season 5 premiere, CarterMatt tried to soften the blow by suggesting that it’s “hard for any cable series to amass large numbers these days,” but the facts are still hard to ignore. The outlet wrote:

This wasn’t a new trend, either: the previous season also saw a significant drop. According to TV Series Finale, season 4 of Vikings was down by a whopping “28 percent in the demo and 44 percent in viewers.” History renewed anyway, but the network must have recognized that the show was approaching its end. One surefire way of getting waning viewers to stick with a show is to announce that the next season will be the last, and it seems the network wanted to wrap Vikings up before it saw a mass exodus. Keep watching the video to learn the real reason Vikings is ending!

How Thanos Really Got All Of The Infinity Stones

How Thanos Really Got All Of The Infinity Stones Everyone in the MCU has been fighting over the Infinity Stones for years now, even if movie audiences didn’t always realize it. But what exactly are all these glowy rocks, and how were all the Infinity Stones finally brought together? Here’s how Thanos, the Mad Titan got all six Infinity Stones on his pretty purple fingers.
Pretty much everyone in the MCU – from Peter Quill to Cull Obsidian – has tried to get their hands on an Infinity Stone at one time or another. But with everybody searching for these magical rocks, we should probably ask: where did the Infinity Stones come from?
Well, Marvel revealed the Stones’ backstory in Guardians of the Galaxy, when the ragtag sci-fi heroes visit an eccentric antiquer called the Collector, played by Benicio del Toro. As the Collector explains to Star-Lord and his crew, before the creation of the universe, there were six singularities. Then, after the Big Bang exploded everything into existence: “…the remnants of these systems were formed into concentrated ingots: Infinity Stones.”
As a result, these gems are incredibly powerful, with each one controlling an element of the universe: power, space, reality, time, the soul, and the mind. And unless you’re some sort of celestial being, you can’t touch these stones with your bare hand – not for very long anyway. That’s why Infinity Stones tend to show up inside orbs, scepters, glowing blue cubes… or a shiny gold glove.

This Is How Bear Grylls Really Makes All His Money

This Is How Bear Grylls Really Makes All His Money Man vs. Wild star Bear Grylls has actually got quite a few side projects that help keep that cash flowing even when he’s not in front of the camera. Here are some of the highlights from his financial journey over the years that have helped him mint his fortune in spades.

While it isn’t everything, the successful survivor’s television career has obviously served as a critical piece in founding his financial fortune. Man vs. Wild, his first blockbuster show, was watched by over a billion viewers. But in more recent years, the Discovery Channel sensation managed to leverage his growing popularity into several other shows, including Running Wild, in which he’s taken numerous celebrities with him on his adventures in the wilderness.

According to The Richest, it’s estimated that Grylls raked in a whopping $30,000 per episode and that was just during his stint on Man vs. Wild. Since then, the numbers only seem to have gone up. Needless to say, there’s no doubt that Mr. Grylls’ personal fortune has received a healthy boost from the years he’s spent in front of the camera.

Television career aside, Grylls has also made several savvy real estate investments over time, the most impressive of which has to be the island he owns in Wales. But we’re not talking about a dirt-rich celebrity dropping a ton of cash on a fancy new island just for fun.

According to The Telegraph, Grylls actually bought the island in 1999, over five years before Man vs. Wild started up. The island, which he considers one of his best investments, covered 20 acres that came with a cottage in need of renovation. He spent the four years following the purchase scrimping and saving up enough money to make repairs. In 2008, Bear estimated he’d spent 100,000 pounds on the project and that it was worth a cool million.

Call it old school if you’d like, but when The Telegraph asked how he preferred to pay for things, Gryll’s answer was short and simple: Keep watching the video to find out how Bear Grylls really makes all his money!

How Avengers: Endgame Is Going To Change The MCU Forever

How Avengers: Endgame Is Going To Change The MCU Forever There’s no doubt that the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War will have a hugely dramatic effect on the Marvel landscape, especially for Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, The Hulk, and the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s characters. From the beginnings of a new era to the newcomers who’ll lead the franchise into the future, here are some of the many different ways that Endgame could change the MCU… forever.

The precise details of actors’ contracts can be tricky to pin down, and it’s only made more difficult with MCU stars thanks to Marvel’s notoriously tight-lipped style of doing business. However, it’s clear that Endgame is the end of the line for at least some, if not nearly all, of the original six Avengers. Chris Hemsworth hinted in early 2018 that he was hanging up his hammer as Thor, while Chris Evans teased an emotional farewell in the fall of the same year. In addition, both Vanity Fair and Time have reported that Endgame finds all six actors either at or near the ends of their contracts.

There’s always the possibility of renegotiation: Robert Downey Jr., for example, has already extended his contract multiple times. But odds are that, one way or another, Endgame is going to be the swan song for the saga’s original band of heroes. It’s a heartbreaking truth, of course, as the MCU has largely revolved around these characters for over a decade. But with so many new adventures on the horizon, Marvel is sure to keep things exciting, even if it’s hard to imagine a Marvel Universe where characters like Hulk, Thor, and Black Widow aren’t getting in on the action.

Explaining The Ending Of Pet Sematary

Explaining The Ending Of Pet Sematary If there’s any human experience more universal than love, it’s loss. And that’s the exact flavor of optimism explored in Pet Sematary. Plus horror. And creepy masks. And cats.

Pet Sematary opened to relatively good reviews, largely due to a few key themes and moments of crucial character development. But as the ending swirled into gory mayhem, you might have lost track of those themes. Let’s dig in and resurrect the ending of Pet Sematary. Spoilers ahead!

The film’s protagonist, Louis Creed, is shown to be blunt and realistic. For him, sugarcoating things like dead cats is an unhealthy approach to parenting.

This rationalism is what makes Louis’ decision to upset the natural balance so surprising. Despite the fact that he already watched his undead cat Church go totally bonkers, Louis abandons common sense and tries to reincarnate his daughter. Initially, Louis achieves his goal, and Ellie is raised from the dead and returns home.

Even though Louis makes a costly mistake in his decision to spend more time with his daughter, he does come full circle and regain a degree of level-headedness in his final moments. As he fights with his daughter, he decides to take Jud’s advice about dead being better, making the painful decision to re-end Ellie’s life.

4 Best And 4 Worst Things In Shazam!

4 Best And 4 Worst Things In Shazam! For the past decade or more, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has dominated box the box office and pop culture as a whole. But sandwiched in between the MCU mega-blockbusters Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, there’s another little superhero movie from the underdogs at DC Comics, and it’s actually really awesome.

How awesome? Well, here’s a spoiler-filled look at the four best and four worst things about Shazam!

The films of the DC Extended Universe have a well-earned reputation for being dark, grim, and gritty, which a lot of audiences felt weren’t too much fun to watch. There’s a lot of angst and moral ambivalence and very little in the way of actual heroism. Instead, they seem to feature angry people who clearly aren’t getting enough fiber in their diets.

So maybe the biggest surprise about Shazam! is that it’s not just funny, it’s also actually fun from start to finish. Director David F. Sandberg mostly does a great job keeping the tone upbeat and energetic as teen Billy Batson discovers his incredible new powers. It’s true that Aquaman also dared to have at least a good time along the way, but Billy’s exuberance at becoming a superhero is something we haven’t really seen before, and is a welcome change compared to the DCEU’s usual dark and violent fare.

On the other hand… while Shazam! is mostly family friendly fun, once in awhile it just sort of forgets itself and veers off into the realm of horror. Of course, this makes some sense considering that Sandberg is best known for directing the acclaimed horror hits Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation.

Still, the tonal shifts are jarring. One minute, Billy and his foster brother Freddy Freeman are clowning around doing the floss, and then the next minute, the evil Dr. Sivana is summoning a horde of demons to literally eat people’s heads off.

“Oh, snap! You’re like a bad guy, right?”

These abrupt detours into terror feel kind of out of place and unnecessary. Luckily, it doesn’t happen often, but even a couple of times might be a couple of times too many.

Watch the video for more on the 4 best and 4 worst things in Shazam!

Joker Trailer Easter Egg Points Us To Another Batman Villain

Joker Trailer Easter Egg Points Us To Another Batman Villain After Warner Bros. unleashed two and a half minutes of glorious Joker footage in early April 2019, fans picked apart each scene, analyzed every frame, and watched the whole thing — multiple times and in slow-motion — in efforts to catch every subtle reference to pop culture and to Batman comics past.
People picked up on the wink at The King of Comedy with Robert De Niro’s casting as a talk show host, the parallel to a classic Joker costume in the teaser’s final shots, and the allusion to another famous pale-faced icon, Charlie Chaplin, with the banners hanging outside Wayne Hall.
What most may not have noticed the first, second, or tenth time around is that the Joker teaser also includes what could be an Easter egg for the Riddler, a longtime foe of Batman.
At the 57-second mark of the footage, during the scene in which Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck is standing in an elevator at Arkham State Hospital, viewers can spot green-ink graffiti on the wall behind him. Though the tag doesn’t appear to hold any deeper meaning, that punctuation mark is intriguing, as it’s the insignia of Edward Nygma, better known as the Riddler. Fans are beginning to think that this could mean the Riddler is hiding in the shadows of director Todd Phillips’ version of Gotham City.
One of the famous baddies in the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery, the Riddler has spent a ton of time locked up in Arkham Asylum — seemingly reimagined for Joker as Arkham State Hospital, which apparently counts Arthur Fleck as a regular visitor. That this sneaky green question mark appears not just anywhere but on an elevator in Gotham’s home for the criminally insane adds some credence to the idea that the graffiti could be a legitimate Riddler Easter egg, and could portend an appearance by Nygma himself. That would, unquestionably, be an awesome surprise …
It wouldn’t be the only clever nod to Batman comics featured in the new Joker footage — or the only one included in connection with Arkham State Hospital. Just after the camera sweeps across Gotham City in the first few seconds, the teaser shows Phoenix’s Arthur sitting opposite a social worker, played by Sharon Washington. Her name tag reveals that her name is Debra Kane. If that surname sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same one as Batman co-creator Bob Kane and as Batman’s cousin Kate Kane, otherwise known as Batwoman.
There are a few other names revealed in the trailer that could be meaningful — or not. For example, there’s street sign that reads “Jerome Avenue.” The DC television series Gotham features a character named Jerome Valeska, who is a precursor to the Joker, much like Arthur Fleck is the man who eventually becomes the clownish criminal in the upcoming Joker movie.
Then there’s the existence of Holmes Pharmacy, which appears 10 seconds into the teaser, when Arthur is walking down the street. Batman is known as the world’s greatest detective — and so is Sherlock Holmes. With a little mental gymnastics, one could deduce that Joker including a pharmacy seemingly named for the other best fictional crime-solver on the planet might tease how Arthur’s life connects with Bruce Wayne’s. Or maybe the production designer just liked the look of the name “Holmes” on the sign!
Taking all this into account, it’s clear how easy it is to make something out of what very well could be nothing. The green question mark inked on the Arkham State Hospital elevator is certainly interesting, but whether it’s actually a Riddler Easter egg is anyone’s guess. Could it be? Sure! Might it just be Todd Phillips wanting to tip his hat to the comics while keeping Joker its own outside-of-the-DCEU thing? Absolutely!
The beauty of this uncertainty is that fans now have yet another reason to look forward to Joker — beyond what looks to be a bang-up performance by Phoenix. When the film opens in theaters on October 4th, all questions shall be answered and all potential Easter eggs will, hopefully, be followed up on.

Terminator: Dark Fate Photos Reveal The New Terminator

Terminator: Dark Fate Photos Reveal The New Terminator He always promised he would be back. Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger and original Sarah Connor actor Linda Hamilton are back in action in a batch of new photos from the upcoming sci-fi sequel, Terminator: Dark Fate.
One new photo released by the studio shows a grizzled and bearded Schwarzenegger, as the T-800 model Terminator, sporting a scar and giving the stink-eye to someone off camera. Another depicts Hamilton in character as Sarah Connor, looking older but no less battle-hardened with a heavy vest of armor on her chest, and aviator sunglasses.
Though Terminator: Dark Fate does feature the two iconic franchise stars, it also brings several new faces into the fold: Mackenzie Davis as a soldier-assassin named Grace, Natalia Reyes as Dani Ramos , Diego Boneta as Miguel Ramos, and Gabriel Luna as a new type of Terminator.
IGN shared stills of each star new to the series in action, with shots including Davis’ Grace character staring down an opponent mid-fight, Reyes’ Dani peeking over her shoulder near a parked car in the middle of an open field, Boneta’s Miguel affecting a scowl from behind the wheel of a truck, and Luna’s Terminator dressed in what looks to be a military uniform while stalking through some sort of high-tech facility.
Set after the events of T2: Judgment Day, Dark Fate will effectively do to the Terminator franchise what 2018’s Halloween revival did with its own series – by pretending most of the sequels in the series didn’t happen.
Instead, Dark Fate is reportedly picking up at the last point basically everyone agreed the series was still good. As a result, the movie won’t address the events of 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, 2009’s Terminator Salvation, or 2015’s much-maligned Terminator Genisys – likely for the better.
As producer David Ellison once said of the film’s focus,
“I will say we have resolved the future of the franchise, and believe me, it’s an incredibly bright future. I think where it’s going will be the continuation of what the fans really wanted since T2 … It’s something we’re incredibly excited about and we think is the direction it needs to head.”
James Cameron, the director and writer of the first two films and a longtime series producer, is also back in the creative mix for Dark Fate, and he’s previously shared his vision for this transformative sixth movie in the franchise.
Speaking in an interview in July 2017, Cameron expressed that the goal with the forthcoming movie is to pass the narrative baton through the introduction of new characters, while also modernizing the doomsday narrative to reflect current technological anxieties.
He’s also aware that the franchise needs a careful approach to bring it back in line with the speculative sci-fi ambitions of the first two movies. As Cameron phrased it, “The question is, ‘Has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up? Can it still have relevance now, where so much of our world is catching up to what was science fiction in the first two films?'”
Despite how important the new characters may be for evolving and continuing the Terminator series, Dark Fate director Tim Miller says that Linda Hamilton is the most vital piece of this movie’s puzzle. He explained to IGN that Hamilton returning to her role as Sarah Connor made a vision for the new sequel fall into place for him, and that her presence helps bridge the gap between past franchise entries and installments that are yet to come.
The director said, “The fact that Linda came back makes this particular Terminator fresh. This story could only continue with her in the role of Sarah Connor. That’s the most important thing for me. Linda reinvented this character in a way that both honors who she was before and brings something new to the role.”
He also gave major kudos to the new cast, all of whom he says hold their own and bring something new to the table while sharing the screen with Hamilton and Schwarzenegger.
Miller also teased the movie’s focus on character over big-budget spectacle, investing audiences in the cast before putting them all in peril. He said,
“We have a lot of powerful, moving character moments up front, but toward the back half of the movie, when s— gets going […] it just doesn’t stop. And we tried very hard to make it all different and fresh – it’s not just people punching each other; it’s a roller coaster ride and I think [it’s] great.”
Fans can watch as old-school meets new-school when Terminator: Dark Fate arrives in theaters on November 1.

The Ending Of Shazam! Explained

The Ending Of Shazam! Explained Thumbnail Image by Bosslogic → http://bit.ly/2S30kgk

With the release of Shazam!, Warner Bros. has another superhero hit on its hands, further proving that you don’t have to make your movie part of the MCU to have a good time. But while the movie’s ending is pretty straightforward, there are enough head-scratching and surprising moments in the movie’s latter third that might be in need of some explanation. Don’t sweat it! That’s why we’re here. Let’s say the magic words — spoilers ahead! — and explain the ending of Shazam!
If you’re not a longtime comic book reader, you may have scratched your head at some of the superhero names Billy and Freddie came up with over the course of the film. From Thundercrack to the Red Cyclone, none of them seemed to stick. By the end of the film, the big dude in red played by Zachary Levi never seemed to actually get the kind of codename that gets attached to other superheroes. You’d think after so many attempts at getting him a codename, he’d do better than “Shazam,” a name he can never say without losing his powers in a bolt of lightning.
So what’s the deal? The short version is that the superhero we meet in Shazam! didn’t always go by this name…in fact, he used to go by Captain Marvel, back when he first debuted in 1939.
But years later, while Captain Marvel comics weren’t being published, Timely Comics changed its name to the more familiar Marvel Comics we all know and love. After Marvel created its own Captain Marvel character in 1967, DC and Marvel Comics had to come to an agreement about how to navigate the tricky trademarks. Eventually, in 2011 DC just gave up “Captain Marvel” entirely, and simply renamed the character “Shazam.” So if you were wondering why he never settled on the pretty good name of “Captain Sparklefingers,” well, now you know why.

Things Only True Fans Noticed In Shazam!

Shazam’s boy-turned-super-dude Billy Batson is a much-needed bolt of bright, cheerful lightning for the normally dark-and-brooding DCEU. In addition to being a great movie, the film was also filled with nerdy Easter eggs for longtime comic book fans. Here are some of the small details we noticed in Shazam! Spoilers ahead!

While Shazam may be synonymous with DC Comics today, the Big Red Cheese was originally published by Fawcett Comics, beginning in 1939. Back then, he was known as Captain Marvel…

…but that’s a whole other story.

His 1939 birthday makes him just slightly younger than Superman, but those few months would have a huge impact.

In 1941, DC launched a campaign against Fawcett to get them to stop publishing Captain Marvel, alleging that he was just a copy of Superman. During the prolonged legal battle, which lasted until 1953, DC even creatively “borrowed” some story aspects from Captain Marvel, including his power to fly, rather than just leap tall buildings, and his bald-headed arch-nemesis.

The court decided in favor of DC, an outcome that crippled Fawcett. Later, in 1972, DC bought the rights to a number of Fawcett characters that they were no longer allowed to use, including Captain Marvel.

But there seems to be no lingering hate between DC and what was once Fawcett Comics, as DC drops a pretty bold tribute to Shazam’s true origins. Plastered across the lunchroom wall is the name of Billy’s alma mater: Fawcett Central.

That wasn’t the last name drop that the movie had in store, though. When Billy’s foster family finds the real names of Billy’s parents, his father is simply identified as “C.C. Batson”, a very clear reference to Shazam’s original co-creator, C.C. Beck.
