Fun Making Of Featurette for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special'

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special Trailer

"This is probably going to be played every year for the rest of our lives." Ahaha yeah that might happen. Marvel has revealed a fun new featurette for the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, arriving for streaming on Disney+ during Thanksgiving. This looks like tons of fun! This video is even better than the trailer, starting with a "The Night Before Christmas" twist about director James Gunn making this Holiday Special. Actors Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Bradley Cooper (as Rocket's voice), and Vin Diesel (as Groot's voice) reprise their roles as the Guardians, with Kevin Bacon also starring as a "gift" for Starlord. It was filmed this year during the end of production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, using many of the same sets from that movie - which is due out next year. Marvel's Kevin Feige is also in this featurette talking about how James Gunn pitched the idea and wrote the script in three days. I just hope it's a good script! It all looks like it's one giant party – with Kevin Bacon.

Discuss: Who's Really the Villain in 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

"You perform civility here, but we know what you whisper in your halls of leadership and in your military facilities." Playing in theaters worldwide is Marvel Studios' sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, director Ryan Coogler's follow-up to the massively successful Black Panther from 2018. Our writer MSB has already published a comprehensive review with his own thoughts on this MCU Phase 4 finale, so I want to bring up some different ideas about the movie. I think Wakanda Forever is actually better, much better, than the original Black Panther movie – which is a bit of a mess in terms of script and set pieces (aside from the Busan chase). It's better because it's much darker, much more confident, and much more complex - not only with the story and Wakanda trying to recover from the loss of T'Challa / Chadwick Boseman, but also with intricate emotions and characters that are not glossy & flawless. The two leaders in this one, Shuri of Wakanda and Namor of Talokan, are both brooding, angry people who just want to defend their own nation.

Review: Coogler's 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' Deals With Grief

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

One of the most arduous tasks for a director is dealing with an external issue that affects the filmmaking process entirely, changing all their original plans and carefully constructed ideas. The life & career of actor Chadwick Boseman impacted the world in an immeasurably, overwhelmingly positive way, leaving an inspiring, culturally significant legacy after his passing in 2020. Black Panther director Ryan Coogler had to take on an impossible mission crafting the Marvel Studios sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but regardless of the film's issues, there's no doubt T'Challa would be proud of what he created in the end.

Watch: Making Of Video for Marvel's 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'

Behind-the-Scenes - Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

"His heart is really pure. And we should protect him at all costs." Actress Letitia Wright says of director Ryan Coogler. Marvel Studios has debuted a behind-the-scenes featurette for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the highly anticipated superhero landing in theaters on November 11th - later this week. Part of a final marketing push. This video focuses entirely on the tender magic of director Ryan Coogler, and how everyone loves working with him and his big heart. I've interviewed him before and can confirm - all of what they say is true. In this sequel, the nation of Wakanda is pitted against intervening world powers as they mourn the loss of their king T'Challa. The ensemble cast in Wakanda Forever includes Letitia Wright as Shuri, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Florence Kasumba as Ayo, Winston Duke as M'Baku, Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, Michaela Coel as Aneka, Tenoch Huerta as Namor of Atlantis, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, & Angela Bassett returning as Ramonda. I wish there was more on set footage in this video, but I am glad we get to hear from Coogler by the end. Check it out below.

Watch This: Rihanna's 'Lift Me Up' Music Video for 'Wakanda Forever'

Lift Me Up Music Video

"Burning in a hopeless dream, hold me when you go to sleep." With Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opening soon in theaters soon, there's a new credits song that is launching with it. Rihanna wrote a new track called "Lift Me Up" just for the Marvel sequel, which is paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and also continuing the Black Panther / T'Challa storyline following so many other events. Her new music video for the track has been released online to watch. It's directed by cinematographer Autumn Durald Arkapaw, who also was the DP on Mainstream and shot Wakanda Forever with director Ryan Coogler. It's edited by Andrew Hegele, and produced by Whitney Jackson. I think most critics are expecting this track to end up with a Best Song Oscar nomination next year, but only time will tell. "It was an honor to get to work with Rihanna on this project and extend the emotion in our film’s visuals, with her captivating performance, beauty, and strength," director Durald Arkapaw stated. We're not usually into music videos that much, but this one is made for the movie's release and even features footage from Wakanda Forever spliced in. Enjoy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

They got Kevin Bacon!! Now this looks like it'll be adorable.

Actors Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Bradley Cooper (as Rocket's voice), and Vin Diesel (as Groot's voice) reprise their roles as the Guardians, with Kevin Bacon also starring.

It was filmed this year during the end of production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, using many of the same sets for that movie - which is due out next year. This trailer has a few glimpses of the X-Mas sweaters and holiday cheer that's in this. It all seems so wonderful and uplifting.

First Trailer for Marvel's 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania' Sequel

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

"It's a secret universe beneath ours." Marvel has revealed the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the third movie in the Ant-Man series in the MCU. This sequel is set to open in theaters in February 2023 early next year. Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne, along with Hope's parents Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne, go on a new adventure exploring the Quantum Realm. This sequel also introduces the next big bad Marvel villain - Kang, played by Jonathan Majors. A "time-traveling, multiversal adversary" who is an alternate-timeline variant of the character He Who Remains from first season of Loki. Majors says Kang is different from HWR with a shifted psychology, due to the different characters surrounding him. The full cast also includes Paul Rudd back as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Randall Park. This looks pretty damn good so far, way more of a sci-fi mindf*ck than expected once they get into the Quantum Realm. And what is Kang up to down there? Hmm.

Nick Fury Takes on the Skrull 'Secret Invasion' in First Official Trailer

Secret Invasion Series Trailer

"I'm the last person standing between them and what they really want." Marvel has revealed another new trailer at D23 this weekend - for the highly anticipated MCU mini-series Secret Invasion, a sequel to the latest epic Marvel movies including Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. It's set to arrive sometime in 2023 with this first tease as our first look at any footage. In the series, Fury returns to Earth and teams up with Talos to prevent a Skrull invasion - hence the "Secret Invasion" since they are a race of alien shapeshifters. The crossover comic event series deals with this faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury, with Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull warrior Talos, Don Cheadle as "Rhodey", Cobie Smulders back as Maria Hill, plus Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Martin Freeman, and Olivia Colman. So far so good – footage is solid. I like the scruffy, bearded Fury finally ready to take on the Skrulls, I just don't know why needs to do it alone.

New Trailers for 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' - More Fun Stuff Version

Spider-Man: No Way Home More Fun Stuff

"Catch it on the big screen!" Sony debuted a 15-sec spot for the upcoming theatrical re-release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has been dubbed the "More Fun Stuff Version." As we all know, No Way Home first opened in December 2021 and made tons of money because it brings back the two other Spider-Men using the Multiverse concept (spoiler! but we all knew it). Apparently many fans thought this movie was too dark and moody and depressing, expecting more fun high school stuff, which isn't as prevalant since the series has evolved. But Disney caved to their demands and has added 11 minutes of "fun stuff" footage back in for this theatrical re-release starting September 2nd. Why now and not in December again? I guess it's the only time theaters have extra space as the fall gets very crowded with new releases. Tom Holland stars as Peter Parker, with Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, J. B. Smoove, Martin Starr, J.K. Simmons, along with the legacy villains Jamie Foxx, Willem Dafoe, and Alfred Molina; plus appearances by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. I don't know, I think the movie was fine as it was.
