ELIZABETH OLSEN ADVISES TO NOT SIGN MULTI-PICTURE CONTRACTS05/27/23 @ 12:03 pm EST
All year long, superstar artist Mark Brooks is helping Marvel Comics celebrate the 60th anniversaries of the Avengers and the X-Men with new CORNER BOX VARIANT COVERS! Utilizing the classic comic book tradition of corner boxes in a unique new way, Brooks depicts lineups and characters from throughout both team’s histories. Today, fans can check out the two installments that will debut in July, adorning AVENGERS #3 and X-MEN #24! For this duo, Brooks takes things back to the ‘80s, a decade that was home to some of the Avengers and X-Men’s greatest stories. On AVENGERS #3’s Corner Box Cover, see how Earth’s Mightiest Heroes expanded in the decade with new faces like Tigra, She-Hulk, and Monica Rambeau. And on X-MEN #24’s Corner Box Cover, Brooks chose to honor the saga that changed the mutant mythos forever by giving Phoenix a gorgeous solo spotlight! “There are many reasons why I was attracted to comics as a kid and the corner box was a big part of it,” Brooks explained. “I knew what issue number and who I could expect to see in the issue. It was a little preview to tantalize the reader. It was always heads, a full figure, or a micro-scene. No matter what, it enticed me to pick the book up. It’s why I started the #LetMarkCornerbox campaign in earnest on Twitter. It was primarily a joke to express my love for the corner box. It ended up taking on a bit of a life of its own. When C.B. told me that they’d like this to become a reality, I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve penciled well over 100 heads so far. I don’t plan on stopping until Marvel says ‘okay, that’s enough’- LOL!”

Elizabeth OlsenPOM KLEMENTIEFF TALKS THE FUTURE OF MANTIS05/27/23 @ 11:59 am EST
is advising other actors to not sign long-term contracts with the MCU. The Wanda/Scarlett Witch actress spoke with Josh Horowitz
on the Happy Sad Confused podcast
and suggested it’s better to go one picture at a time. “I think that way you have more control over… if you, let’s say, you’re like, ‘Oh my god, this is the most fun I’ve ever had, and I love this character so much, I want to do it again,’ you now have more creative control for the next one,” she told the host. Olsen is doing that now with Marvel Studios, with her most recent contract extension coming for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness
. There is some speculation that the character could return in the WandaVision
spinoff series Agatha: Coven of Chaos
, but nothing has been confirmed.

aske the actress if there will be more of Mantis in the future. "We don’t know what’s going to happen with the characters, if there’s going to be more movies, if we’re going to come back. We have no clue. Mantis is going to go riding and see what’s up."
As for Pom, she’s headed to Cannes for the premiere of another massive franchise she has joined, Mission Impossible. "I’m excited to go to Cannes. It’s going to be really nice to go back to where I’m from. I feel very grateful to be working with these very talented directors. I mean, between James Gunn, Christopher McQuarrie, and then Sam Hargrave—they’re so amazing in different ways. So, I just feel grateful for that. And it happens to be things that are being seen by a lot of people, which is even better."

Warner Bros. is giving audiences a closer look at “Barbie” in a new official trailer. While the story of the film has been mostly kept under wraps, the new trailer teases what Greta Gerwig’s summer tentpole is all about, as Barbie and Ken are set to officially
enter the real world on July 21.
Fatigued of their days in Barbieland (where everyone is seemingly also named Barbie and Ken), Margot Robbie’s Barbie and Ryan Gosling’s Ken venture out beyond the borders of their homeland. The new footage shows Barbie and Ken exploring the modern world, which is quite different from the safe haven of their pink-coded, plastic lifestyle. While on Venice Beach, Barbie punches a man who slaps her butt, and she and Ken end up posing with some LAPD mugshots. Meanwhile, people in our world are starting to freak out that a real-life Barbie is walking the streets of L.A.
Gerwig serves as director and co-writer of “Barbie” alongside her husband, Noah Baumbach. The film is a co-production by Mattel Films, Heyday Films and Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment. Josey McNamara from LuckyChap and Ynon Kreiz from Mattel serve as executive producers. (via Variety
