Here’s Why We Haven’t Seen The Hulk In Any Endgame Trailers

Here’s Why We Haven’t Seen The Hulk In Any Endgame Trailers Less than two months from the release of Avengers: Endgame, we’ve still had no Hulk sightings. So where is he? Until the movie arrives in theaters, there’s no way to know for sure, but for now, here’s a look at some of the most likely reasons you haven’t seen Hulk in the Avengers: Endgame trailers.

If the body count of Avengers: Endgame is anything like what we saw in Avengers: Infinity War, then there’s good reason to assume the Hulk might not survive the latest Avengers adventure. In fact, you could argue that he has less chance of surviving Endgame than most. We haven’t heard a lot about whether Mark Ruffalo plans to keep playing the character after this movie, but we’re pretty sure Marvel won’t be pursuing any solo Hulk films anytime soon. Additionally, Endgame marks the end of the “Hulk trilogy” that Ruffalo discussed with MCU boss Kevin Feige that began with Thor: Ragnarok. So if there’s a time for the Hulk to take a final bow, now seems pretty appropriate.

If directors Joe and Anthony Russo were to kill the Hulk, doing it early in the film might accomplish the same thing Hulk’s beating at the hands of Thanos did in Infinity War. Having Thanos defeat the Avengers’ toughest muscleman in the first few minutes of the film let audiences know what kind of threat the heroes were facing. The stakes are likely to be raised in Endgame, and it may be that the filmmakers decided the only thing more effective than having Thanos K.O. the Hulk in the first few minutes would be to have Thanos take Hulk out permanently. If that’s the case, there might not actually be much Endgame footage that wouldn’t spoil the hero’s death — hence his absence from the trailers.

But if we’re being totally honest? This doesn’t seem too likely compared with some of the other possible reasons we’ve come up with.

Watch the video for more about why we haven’t seen The Hulk in any Endgame trailers!

More Things Only True Fans Noticed In The Endgame Trailer

More Things Only True Fans Noticed In The Endgame Trailer When it comes to Marvel trailers, every moment has something important to say and comes with the promise of deeper meanings, hidden explanations, and misleading misdirections. Let’s break it down and take a look at more details you may have missed in the newest Avengers: Endgame trailer.

The new trailer featured a group of heroes walking through the Avengers hangar. If the scene from the trailer felt familiar, there’s a good reason for that: The Super Bowl spot also ended on a quick tease of a string of heroes walking through the same hangar.

The thing is, each trailer seems to be showing distinctly different groups of people at different times. The Big Game clip seemed to depict Cap, Thor, Black Widow, Rocket, Ant-Man, War Machine, and either Bruce Banner or Clint Barton. They also appear to be wearing their normal super-suits. This time around the setting remained, but the shot showed Cap, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, War Machine, Black Widow, Iron Man AND Nebula – all sporting new suits that look an awful lot like a variation on Hank Pym’s Quantum Realm suit, or even the space armor that the heroes donned in the cartoons.

What’s going on here? Why do we have two nearly identical shots with completely different groups and suits?

Whenever Endgame takes place, speculation is running high that it will showcase a sizable jump forward in time. In the newest trailer we get a clip of Clint Barton with what appears to be his family. The next shot is a repeat from the last trailer, showing a distressed Barton with a completely different haircut. Then there’s Black Widow. She ended Infinity War with short blonde hair, but in the trailer she’s shown with long hair that drapes past her shoulders. Her hair also goes from blonde to her natural red, and that takes time to grow out. Black Widow seems to be the big clue that we are dealing with some sort of time jump between movies.

The first trailer had a moment showing Steve Rogers looking at a compass with Agent Peggy Carter’s picture in it, a touching reminder of how far the man has come since he was a scrawny kid desperately trying to fight for his country. Although apparently, it wasn’t just a callback to an emotional past, because Cap’s old flame can be heard in a voiceover during the new trailer too. Keep watching the video for even more things only true fans noticed in the Endgame trailer!

Why This Character From Us Looks So Familiar

Why This Character From Us Looks So Familiar If you’ve seen the trailer for Us, Jordan Peele’s follow-up to Get Out, then you probably noticed a familiar face or two in the mix particularly the family’s matriarch, Adelaide. In case you didn’t know, the name of the actress playing her is Lupita Nyong’o, and there’s good reason she looks so familiar.

Like so many big screen successes before her, Lupita Nyong’o actually got her big break in television. After appearing in a couple of short films such as The Roadside, she was cast in the MTV Africa production Shuga. A daring and explicit series set in Kenya and designed to promote safe sex, awareness, and tolerance, Shuga has yet to air in the United States. But some people in Hollywood saw it and it turned out that was all she needed.

In 2013, America was finally introduced to Nyong’o, and it was worth the wait. Working alongside acting heavyweights like Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Sarah Paulson, Nyong’o made her big screen debut in 12 Years a Slave as the tragically tormented Patsey. The performance earned raves from critics and audiences alike, culminating in Nyong’o taking home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

After winning the oscar for 12 Years a Slave, Nyong’o was instantly catapulted to worldwide superstardom. But her next big role wasn’t in acting at all it was as the face of the French luxury cosmetics and perfume company Lancôme, who signed Nyong’o in 2014. In the years since, she’s helped propel the brand to new heights, while becoming a global fashion icon.

Unfortunately, Nyong’o’s first big screen venture after 12 Years A Slave was less than memorable. A pulpy, action-packed thriller, 2014’s Non-Stop starred Liam Neeson as a dude with a particular set of skills, only this time, on an airplane. It’s a bombastic, often baffling piece of work that makes little use of its talented cast. That includes Nyong’o, whose brief turn as a flight attendant in transit barely registers among all the action movie bluster. Keep watching the video to find out why this character from Us looks so familiar!

Things Only True Fans Noticed In The New Endgame Trailer

Things Only True Fans Noticed In The New Endgame Trailer With Captain Marvel fresh off its box office-conquering opening weekend, Marvel is already thinking ahead to its next blockbuster, having just dropped the official trailer for the superhero-infused crossover event of the year. The new Avengers: Endgame clip is clearly built to stoke fan anticipation. Every moment seems to have something important to say, and comes with the potential of deeper meanings, hidden explanations, and misleading misdirections. Let’s break it down and take a look at the details you might’ve missed in the newest Avengers: Endgame trailer. And just so we’re all clear — potential and rumored spoilers ahead…don’t say we didn’t warn you, y’all.

We’ve seen this before: the Avengers: Endgame Super Bowl spot opened on a quick sequence that sped through ten MCU characters, most of whom had died or been snapped in Infinity War. Everything was in black, white, and red all over. This time around, the red-highlighted footage is back, and also specifically highlights some different faces…like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Thor, and Okoye… four characters who did not get snapped. It’s pretty widely known that Avengers: Endgame is the final movie in Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Evans’ Marvel Studios contracts. That doesn’t mean they’re definitively done with their characters…but if you’re gonna retire a role, you could do worse than saving half the universe, you know?

Meanwhile, that red coloring still seems highly symbolic. Red is often connected to blood and death. But — as we’ve theorized before — it could have something to do with the red Reality Stone and its possible usage in un-snapping the world. Will that gem be instrumental in defeating Thanos once and for all? If this montage means what we think it might, keep your eyes peeled for that scarlet stone…

One of the most exciting moments in the first trailer was the arrival of Scott Lang at the Avengers HQ with his Quantum-powered Ant-Van. While the presence of Lang in Endgame is a pleasant if not a particularly surprising revelation, one attention-getting moment occurred when Cap and Black Widow ask each other about what they’re seeing:

Many detail-oriented fans seized on her not-quite-answer to suggest that the footage wasn’t actually live. The word “Archive” in the upper left corner of the screen also led some to theorize that perhaps the security camera clip was, in fact, a very “old message”…and from a different year entirely.

In the new trailer, things seem to point toward a post-snap arrival for Lang. Ant-Man features heavily throughout the trailer, but one scene in particular shows a befuddled Scott looking at a telephone pole plastered with missing person posters. While this could be highlighting a particularly active day for kidnappers, chances are the scene puts Lang firmly after the snap as he starts to piece together what happened.

One of the biggest questions that’s swirled since the dust from Infinity War settled was if, how, and when time travel would factor into Avengers: Endgame. Ant-Man and the Wasp explored the potential of the Quantum Realm, opening up the opportunity for that mode of inter-dimensional transportation to come into play in Endgame. And we know from that film’s post-credits scene that the Quantum Realm is entangled with time travel in some way:

And as this newest trailer seems to indicate, it appears more and more likely that audiences will be pulled around the MCU timeline in Endgame. Keep watching the video to find Things only true fans noticed in the new Endgame trailer!

Movies You Won’t Believe Were Released 30 Years Ago

Movies You Won’t Believe Were Released 30 Years Ago 1989 was a great year for pop culture classics, with blockbuster hits that helped to form some of the fabric of our shared language of references and influences. It was also a full 30 years ago, and remembering that while you’re watching an old favorite might just make you feel like you’re crumbling to dust as the credits roll. The good news? We’re here with some emotional support as you remember that these movies were released a full three decades ago.

In the 1980s, the only big-screen superhero megastar was Superman, and the last major live-action effort for Batman starred Adam West. Then came director Tim Burton, fresh off of Beetlejuice, and an effort to capture some of the more gothic Batman spirit made so popular by the comics of the ’70s and ’80s. The result was Tim Burton’s Batman, a massive commercial hit and one of the most talked-about films of 1989.

Michael Keaton starred as the Dark Knight, which was a controversial casting choice at the time, since he was mostly known for known for goofy comedies. It’s easy to argue that the real star was Jack Nicholson as the Joker.

“Wait’ll they get a load of me.”

Burton and designer Anton Furst imagined a Gotham City that lives up to its name with bold set design choices, memorable costumes, a gorgeously lonesome Wayne Manor, and a sweeping score from Danny Elfman that still resonates as Batman’s signature theme. The film has its flaws, including a rather contrived origin for the Joker, but even today it holds up as a classic of the genre.

Other Batman films have come since, some great and some… not so well loved, but Burton’s film still holds a certain kind of sway over ’80s and ’90s kids. It spawned a franchise that would run for a decade and remains one of the most influential superhero films ever made. In fact, virtually every comic book film of the 1990s and even into the 2000s was a reaction to it in some way.

The last film installment of the Friday the 13th franchise was an ill-fated reboot in 2009, so it might be difficult to remember that this slasher series was once a box office powerhouse. Producers cranked out eight Friday films in the 1980s, and quickly established Jason Voorhees’ reputation as an iconic killing machine who just won’t go away.

Jason Takes Manhattan is not the best of these films, but it is among the most interesting. It follows a group of high school seniors who are all set to take a big trip up to the Big Apple, but there’s one problem: their journey begins at Crystal Lake, where Jason sank at the end of the last film. He’s reanimated by an electrical accident, climbs aboard, and begins causing havoc. Sadly, he only really “takes” Manhattan in the final minutes, but in between there’s a brutal and often silly cruise that some Friday fans love and others loathe. Whether you dig the film or not, it remains a fascinating cultural artifact in terms of how far slasher franchises were willing to go in the ’80s to keep churning out sequels.

Rick Moranis hasn’t made a major live-action film appearance in more than 20 years, but once upon a time he was a comedy powerhouse, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids was one of his most successful showcases. Moranis is a master of in-over-your-head, nerdy comedy, and in that regard he was perhaps never more perfectly cast than he is in this film. Keep watching the video to learn more about Movies you won’t believe were released 30 years ago.

Watch This Before You See The Final Game Of Thrones Season

Watch This Before You See The Final Game Of Thrones Season Game of Thrones is finally on the way back for its final season, promising to bring answers to all of our questions about dragons, white walkers, and, presumably, whether Hot Pie’s new restaurant business was a success. Still, it’s it’s been a while since we’ve visited the Seven Kingdoms, so before we get the final piece of HBO’s epic hit series, here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know before you watch Game of Thrones Season 8.

The most shattering reveal of Season 7 came in the finale, confirming one of the longest-held theories in all of Game of Thrones fandom.

Jon Snow is not, it turns out, the bastard son of Ned Stark. He’s actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, which makes him the rightful-ish heir to the Iron Throne. As his sister Lyanna was close to death due to childbirth complications, Ned promised to keep her secret at all costs, lying about Jon’s parentage to protect his identity. Not even Jon knows he’s a Targaryen, which is why, in true GoT fashion, this reveal was intercut with shots of Jon making out with Daenerys Targaryen, his secret aunt.

Surprisingly, that’s not the most shocking thing about the scene. Instead, it’s the ramifications of Jon having both Targaryen and Stark blood coursing through his veins. As we learned from the Three-Eyed Raven, Jon’s a walking, talking one-man song of ice and fire with roots that go back to Robert’s Rebellion, the big brawl in Westeros that predates the events of the series. Robert Baratheon cut down Rhaegar on the battlefield and seized the Iron Throne, setting into motion the narrative we’ve been following for seven seasons, but it was all based on a lie. When Lyanna left Robert to run off with Rhaegar, the story throughout the Seven Kingdoms was that she was kidnapped. In reality, though, it seems Rhaegar and Lyanna were deeply in love, marrying in secret just before they met their ultimate fates.

Game of Thrones has used “Winter is coming” as its ominous tagline since 2011, and Season 7 finally delivered on that promise. As the final image of the season, we see the undead army of White Walkers on horseback advancing on the Seven Kingdoms. The woefully outmatched remnants of the free folk and the Night’s Watch helplessly watch as the Night King flexes on the realms of men by having his new ice dragon huff, puff, and blow the Wall down. That’s right: the Night King has resurrected an undead, unkillable dragon as the deadliest weapon in his considerable arsenal.

So what’s the deal with all the ice zombies? In short, wights are the undead hordes of soldiers who serve the White Walkers, former humans turned into zombie-like ice monsters that serve under the Night King. The Night King’s true motives aren’t yet known, but we know that he’s extremely powerful and can control the entire army with a sort of telepathy. Fire can destroy the wights, but only dragon fire, dragonglass, and Valyrian steel can kill White Walkers. Samwell Tarly has discovered that Dragonstone, the historical seat of House Targaryen, is sitting on a mountain of dragonglass, and Jon Snow and his men have been mining it and turning it into weapons in preparation ever since. As for the Night King, it’s unclear if anything can stop him. Keep watching the video to know what you should know before watching Game Of Thrones season 8.

Why The Night King In Game Of Thrones Is Almost Definitely A Stark

Why The Night King In Game Of Thrones Is Almost Definitely A Stark Game of Thrones’ Night King is a terrifying villain. But he may have a connection to one of Westeros’ most noble families: House Stark. In both the books and TV series, there are plenty of hints indicating that the Night King could actually be a Stark.

To understand the connection between House Stark and the leader of the Others, it’s important to understand the beginnings of each. According to The World of Ice and Fire, the Long Night was a winter that lasted for an entire generation, thousands of years before the story we know takes place. During the Long Night, the Others terrorized the First Men, the humans who had settled in Westeros. After much fighting with the Others, one of the First Men reached an agreement with the magical beings called the Children of the Forest, and joined forces with them to repel the Others.

No one knows for certain who that person was, but it’s hinted that this legendary hero was Bran the Builder, the first Stark, who helped establish the Night’s Watch. Bran would go on to work with the Children to build the magically-protected Wall to help defend against the Others.

Though this battle and the wall’s construction was the first interaction between the Starks and the Others, it was far from the last.

Before we go any further, there’s an important distinction to be made between two key figures: the Night King, and the Night’s King.

The Night King is the leader of the White Walkers in the Game of Thrones TV series. The Night’s King, however, is someone briefly touched upon in the Song of Ice and Fire books.

The Night’s King was a human, and the 13th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. To give you an idea of how long ago this was, Jon Snow is the 998th Lord Commander. Or, was. Briefly.

While serving as Commander, the Night’s King fell in love with a mysterious woman, and together they began making human sacrifices to the Others. After 13 years, with the help of House Stark, the Night’s King and his otherworldly wife were both defeated.

The similar names have led some to speculate that the two may be the same person. But when asked about the possibility, George R.R. Martin asserted otherwise.

So, that’s that. They’re two different people. But they also may be deeply connected, by a lot more than just their similar names.

Why Captain Marvel Blew Everyone Away At The Box Office

Why Captain Marvel Blew Everyone Away At The Box Office Captain Marvel blasted into theaters over its opening weekend with an astonishing domestic haul of over $150 million in ticket sales. Adding global receipts bumped that figure to a staggering $455 million, making it the sixth-highest global debut of all time.

While those numbers are impressive, when you step back and consider why the film did so well, it all comes into focus pretty quickly. From its impact on larger MCU storylines to some background on who Captain Marvel actually is, here are some of the top reasons that Carol Danvers’ debut flew away with the box office. Spoilers ahead!

The elephant in the room for all things Marvel right now is Avengers: Endgame. Coming off last spring’s anxiety-inducing third Avengers installment, at least half of the population is dying to see what happens next. The pent-up demand for Endgame has lent a boost to the Marvel movies that came out in the interim. Ant-Man and the Wasp pulled in a neat $617 million worldwide and Captain Marvel has made over two thirds that total in its first few days of release. While there are a ton of different factors for Captain Marvel’s success, the backdrop of Endgame looming a mere seven weeks after its release date surely helped the movie soar to blockbuster heights.

Why Goose Is Way More Important Than You Realize

Why Goose Is Way More Important Than You Realize Despite appearing to be nothing more than a cute little kitty, this merciless creature is one of the most powerful entities in Captain Marvel, and potentially the entire MCU. Don’t believe us? Ask Nick Fury. Here’s everything you need to know about the “cat” in Captain Marvel. Spoilers ahead!

In the comics, the idea of Carol having a loyal pet kitty predates the occasion of her officially taking the mantle of Captain Marvel, with the cat making its first appearance in 2006’s Giant-Size Ms. Marvel #1. But much like in the movie, in which it takes up until the third act for the other, alien shoe to drop, the cat spent years in the comics being seen as just a cat. It only reached its full, fearsome potential as an alien “flerken” during the space-set 2014 run of Captain Marvel.

In the comics, Carol first meets her cat in an imagined alternate dimension conjured up by Scarlet Witch during the “House of M” storyline, but is fortunate enough to see the creature cross back over into her reality with her when that illusion comes to an end. In the movies, though, the cat is introduced as a companion of Annette Bening’s Mar-Vell, another alien in disguise hiding out on Earth.

Though Captain Marvel’s cat has only appeared in one movie so far, it’s already responsible for one of the most consequential actions in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe scratching out Nick Fury’s eye.

Ever since he was introduced in the surprise post-credits coda to 2008’s Iron Man, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has worn a patch over his left eye, implying a fairly badass backstory. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Fury hinted at what happened …

Now, more than 10 years after being introduced in the movies, we finally know the origins of Nick Fury’s signature injury the flerken did it! While “I lost my eye to an alien” is a pretty cool story to tell over drinks, it loses a little bit of that cool factor when the alien in question looks like a typical housecat. So Fury has been letting rumors take hold and embracing the mythmaking around his lost eye ever since.

Watch the video for more on why Goose is way more important than you realize.
