“Moon Knight”: Marc and Steven, Tomb-Busters and even a Hippo were all in Episode 4. 

Episode 4: The Tomb. At the end of the episode, Arthur Harrow shoots Marc, who is in charge of Marc’s body at the time. Marc dies in the tomb of Alexander the Great. Marc then wakes up somewhere else. As far as he knows, he’s been in a mental hospital. However, things around him look a little weird to him. Then he meets up with Steve. What comes next? At the end of Episode 4, there are only half as many weird things for people to see.

Take a look at the twists and turns of the last episode. 

Marc Spector is no longer with us, and he has died. Steven Grant is also dead. It might surprise people who are watching Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight to learn that the show killed off the main character. But Moon Knight isn’t just any other show. This is just the beginning of Marc and Steven’s journey. 

Episode 4: The Tomb. At the end of the episode, Arthur Harrow shoots Marc, who is in charge of Marc’s body at the time. Marc dies in the tomb of Alexander the Great. Marc then wakes up somewhere else. As far as he knows, he’s been in a mental hospital. However, things around him look a little weird to him. Then he meets up with Steve. What comes next? At the end of Episode 4, there are only half as many weird things for people to see. 

MAKING MARC AND TAWRET GO TO HELL 

Any doubts about killing Marc and Steven? According to Head Writer/Executive Producer Jeremy Slater, that’s not true. 

“I knew that a show like this needs big changes and to surprise the audience,” he says. When the main character is killed off, what is more shocking than that? But at least wherever Marc and Steve are, and whatever they’re doing, they’ve already made one friend along the way: a hippo. 

Marc and Steven don’t know what to make of Taweret when she shows up at the end of Episode 4. What did Slater need to get done with the show? She was the only thing. 

“Right from the very first week, Marvel provided us with a ton of reference material on Egyptology, and on ancient Egyptian gods and deities,” He continues. Taweret was one of those pieces of material. It was a laminated poster with pictures of all the different gods that looked like little kids. At our writers’ room, I stayed there for the whole first week and just looked. Finally, I couldn’t take any more. I interrupted whatever we were talking about and I was like, ‘Guys, we have something much more important, which is, how do I get this hippo into the show?’” 

Yes, the writer’s room was filled with laughter. “I said, “No, stop laughing,” and then I laughed. There is no way I’m not taking this seriously! We’re putting her in the show,” Slater continues with a laugh himself. “I think that was the first moment everyone realized, oh, we have permission to get weird, here. We have permission to do some things you wouldn’t necessarily get to do if you weren’t working at a place like Marvel Studios… This gave me my weird swing. And most importantly, it got my favorite hippo into the show.” 

But how she fits into the puzzle for Marc and Steven remains to be seen (if they ever stop screaming). TOMB BUSTERS 

Turns out, “Steven Grant” is actually a real person — er, a real fictitious person, as he stars in the VHS of Tomb Busters. Suddenly, in Episode 4, the aspect ratio changes, and viewers are treated to a little snippet of Dr. Steven Grant and his trusty sidekick as they head off in search of treasure. 

The directors of Episode 4, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, were thrilled to try out something new while filming this little Tomb Busters interlude. 

“It was so much fun, because that vignette, of course, is very deliberately completely different from everything we’d ever shot — in style, in performance, in lighting, and everything,” Moorhead tells Marvel.com. As the group was filming, “everybody had this giant smile on their faces as we were exploring, just being as silly as possible. The performers that we were able to get were having just this joyous time, that we were sad that we weren’t able to have another day with them.” 

PUTNAM HOSPITAL 

As if Tomb Busters and Steven Grant aren’t enough of a fun, hidden detail for you, the beginning of that following scene is chock full of references to prior episodes of the series. You’ve got a Rubik’s cube, cupcakes, chess, marshmallows, even a little Moon Knight figure…the list goes on. It was a fun challenge for the directors to try and squeeze in as many references as possible for eagle-eyed fans. 

However, Benson and Moorhead didn’t direct Episodes 1 and 3 of the series; Mohamed Diab did. So, the duo called him up with a favor. 

“What was fun was we had to call up Mohamed and ask, ‘Hey, what can we put in a scene that’s really recognizable from your episodes?’ All we had were the dailies of his episodes. We didn’t quite know what the other episodes looked like yet. [That scene] is all visuals. It had to be a visual cue. So what are people going to definitely remember from [his] episodes?” 

Speaking of visual cues, the directors also wanted to change the look of this scene, clearly indicating Marc was now in a completely different location (and mindset). 

“A lot of what we were trying to do was to visually contrast what we were doing. There’s a lot of handheld down in the tomb and then he dies and everything is very steady and it’s all dark. It’s very dark with reflections of water light and all of that. Then it goes to the brightest set you’ve ever seen that’s all white,” Morehead explains. 

“We realized that it wasn’t that we’d spent 30 minutes [in Marc and Steven’s world], we’d spent three and a half hours in there. You know, we’ve got [Episodes] 1, 2 and 3 before us and so we wanted to make sure that it felt like such a gut punch that people would start questioning the reality of the entire show and which one of them is actually supposed to be the real one.” MEETING MARC AND STEVEN 

To the utter shock of both Marc and Steven, the two actually meet. In what is certainly a surprising turn of events, Marc finds Steven in a closed sarcophagi and, after freeing him, finds his alter face to face with him. And they do what anyone would probably do in this situation: hug. 

Calling it a moment that they’re “really proud of,” Justin and Aarron love that Marc and Steven “kind of instinctually hug.” 

“It’s an interesting reaction, especially considering the relationship they’ve been having with each other, but it feels right. It feels like this breath of relief,” Moorhead continues. “But what that hug is, is it’s actually inspired by the end of the Jeff Lemire run of MOON KNIGHT. There’s this wonderful moment where he hugs himself. We were so in love with the idea of someone hugging another part of themselves and saying comforting words that we really, really wanted to get that hug moment into one of our episodes and that moment was right.”

Doctor Strange 2 : Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Deleted Fight Scene – FanArt

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This res

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This resulted in some really fantastic battle sequences between the MCU’s two most powerful magic-wielders, but there’s been a lot of talk about more of it appearing in deleted scenes.

The majority of that attention has been focused on the sequel’s abandoned opening scene, in which Wanda Maximoff would have killed Earth-616’s Baron Mordo. She would have decapitated him and gave Strange the severed head when they first met at the farm, leaving little mistake about who Strange would face during Doctor Strange 2.

Over the last several months, concept art has also hinted more deleted sequences, including a flashback to Strange losing his sister at the lake and a tease showing the wicked Nightmare in action. Fans can now see more deleted Scarlet Witch action, which would have pitted her against Strange once again early in the Multiversal sequel.

Doctor Strange 2’s Deleted Scarlet Witch Battle Illustrator David Allcock released a collection of storyboard drawings including a previously uncovered deleted sequence from Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through Twitter user @itsjustanx. This scenario would have pitted Doctor Strange against the Scarlet Witch as Strange and America Chavez jumped across the Multiverse after leaving Kamar-Taj.

Strange uses his magic to free Chavez from the Scarlet Witch’s grasp while Chavez opens one of her star portals.

The scene when Chavez falls through with the blue light from her portal around her in-frame seems very similar to what appeared in the final cut of the film.

It would have had the Scarlet Witch really pursue Strange and Chavez into the star gate, employing images similar to those seen before when the villain was pushing through mirrors.

Along with Wanda pursuing the heroic team, they would have encountered other demons while traversing the Multiverse. There was even a chance they’d run across one of the more sinister Strange Variants, akin to how Earth-616’s good doctor confronted Sinister Strange at the conclusion of the narrative.

As the Scarlet Witch pursued Strange and Chavez, she would release more of her actual power, which she had garnered while delving into the pages of the Darkhold.

In her chase, the villain would have seized Chavez by the wrist, however it’s uncertain whether the action would have progressed as it did in the final edit of Doctor Strange 2.

Marvel Parallels Avoided With Deleted Scene?

New Doctor Strange 2 Art Reveals Deleted Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Fight

With Doctor Strange 2 clocking in at little over two hours, it’s hardly unexpected that so many deleted scenes and concept art have been published now that the film has come and gone. This sequence would have certainly added a couple of minutes to the running length, although it’s unclear whether it would have come with the universe-jumping scene or taken its place entirely.

Furthermore, given Marvel’s vast history, this deleted battle has some resemblance to another sequence seen by fans in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which starred Thor, Loki, and Hela. This three got into a similar brawl when Loki summoned the Bifrost to transport him and Thor to Asgard, prompting Hela to leap in and fling them over the rainbow bridge into the uncharted realms of space.

In the end, it looks that this confrontation between Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch was never even pre-visualized, since this is the first time fans have seen this scene shown in public. While it would have undoubtedly provided another fantastic combat scene to the already packed film, leaving it out maintained some of the emphasis on Strange and America as they began their first journey across the Multiverse.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now available to watch on Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Is Now Available

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are preparing to send fans back to the MCU’s first real Multiversal event, “The More Fun Stuff Version,” when Tom Holland’s third and largest solo Spidey trip takes a second run on the big screen.

The extended edit of No Way Home will feature 11 minutes of material that did not make the initial theatrical release in December 2021, according to reports. More material starring Charlie Cox’s “very smart lawyer,” Matt Murdock, as well as other exchanges with Holland and the two other Spider-Men, portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, are possible.

The advertising tour for the new No Way Home extended cut began with a new poster that included all three Spider-Men, as well as all five villains and a scattering of supporting characters. This promotional tour now continues with a new trailer for the film, however it doesn’t exactly include any…new stuff.

New Trailer for No Way Home Extended Cut

Watch: Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Released

Sony Pictures has published a 30-second clip for Spider-Man: No Way Home’s theatrical re-release, which begins on August 31 in Indonesia.

Surprisingly, despite the promise that fresh material would be added in this edit, this teaser has no new footage.

The commercial focuses mostly on Peter’s struggles with the film’s five Multiversal antagonists, including Happy Hogan’s phone conversation in which he asks Peter who they are all. The closing scene of the teaser depicts Peter leaping into fight against the criminals, with the other two Spider-Men cut out, but the Lizard is still hit by the air, exactly as he was in the second trailer.

The whole trailer is available below:

Sony is back with another Spider-Man trailer.

Sony Pictures rocketed to the top of the entertainment business with the original release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, despite a difficult couple of years of releases. The studio had its most successful film ever, shattering box office records and generating over $2 billion in its first run.

Despite the hype for the “More Fun Stuff Version,” Sony made no attempt to tease anything new that would be presented in this new edit of the threequel. The studio didn’t even bother to replace the scene of all three Spider-Men leaping into fight on the Statue of Liberty, instead settling for the error-filled picture in which the Lizard is assaulted by a secret figure.

Regardless of these gaffes, anticipation is growing for what Sony and Marvel have in store with material not included in the initial December 2021 edit. And, if nothing else, the threequel is still one of the most popular superhero films in history, which should be plenty to entice fans to return to the big screen a few more times.

Marvel’s Biggest Multiverse Reveal Is Wasted

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy rig

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.

Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy right now, but Marvel Comics has been using the notion for decades. The finest multiverse tales allow you to ponder the question “What If…?” – to picture universes where heroes were beaten instead of triumphing, planets were broken, or entire new champions created. Sometimes these “What If…?” tales help to establish concepts that will ultimately make their way into the regular comic book narrative, and maybe even into the movies themselves. In the comics, Jane Foster initially appeared as Thor.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 features “A Single Thread,” a short narrative by Dan Slott and Paco Medina that has just been used to change the history and nature of the entire Marvel world. The universe started untold billions of years ago, long after the ancient Elder Gods were expelled, according to Edge of Spider-Verse #2. Gaea and Oshtur started producing new gods and demigods, and they entrusted the construction of the universe to the early spider-goddess Neith. She fashioned the Web of Life and Destiny, which is centered on Earth-001. Finally, the Spider-hidden Verse’s genesis has been exposed.

Marvel has just rewritten the structure of the whole multiverse.

It’s odd, though, that Marvel practically squandered such a big disclosure. The real nature of the universe is introduced in what seems to be a tangent or side-story to the main event, rather than in a large ” event ” issue with a great amount of hype behind it. This choice is even more astounding considering the importance of multiverses in popular culture, and Marvel Comics’ own multiverse is now serving as inspiration for the MCU’s. Spider-Man: No Way Home, like the comics, has established spider-characters as prominent players in the universe.

Marvel Wastes Its Biggest Multiverse Reveal

To be fair to Marvel, Edge of Spider-Verse #2 does have some backstory. The first Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries debuted with the original Spider-Verse storyline in 2014, and its second issue featured the famous Spider-Gwen. Marvel may have decided to make the second issue of this new Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries seem just as important – but if so, the comic book publisher could have pushed it more aggressively.

It’s enthralling to discover the real genesis and nature of the MCU’s cosmos. The important issue is whether it will survive much longer; this tie-in is tied with the End of the Spider-Verse event, implying that the multiverse’s laws are going to be altered. Marvel’s universe has been defined, but it may not last.
