3Novices : Titans: Beast Boy & Wonder Girl Actors Also Wrap On DC TV Show

Production on Titans is coming to a close as two more actors from the upcoming DC TV show have wrapped filming. There has been a flurry of information coming in regarding DC Universe these past few months, as more and more shows have been added to the slate of the comic company’s streaming service. And while a specific date hasn’t been announced, DC Entertainment is targeting an August launch for DC Universe. When it finally does launch, it will bring with it the long-awaited premiere of Titans, offering live-action versions of a number of DC heroes and villains for the first time ever.

Along with the core team of Robin, Beast Boy, Starfire, and Raven, the show will also introduce Hawk & Dove, as well as the Doom Patrol (who will then spin into their own series on DC Universe). And while not official yet, Jason Todd will be on Titans. In fact, actor Curran Walters has already wrapped his role, which will include a self-titled episode for the one-time Robin. To add onto that, another pair of actors have finished filming as the show prepares to debut.

Reddit user thomasp00 has grabbed screenshots from the Instagram Story of both Ryan Potter and Connor Leslie. The first, from the actor playing Beast Boy, makes clear that he’s wrapped filming on Titans. Connor Leslie, meanwhile, who is believed to be playing Wonder Girl on Titans, shared her plane trip back (presumably from the Toronto set of the series).

Interestingly, it appears that DC is going all-in on the comic book connections, thanks to comic-accurate costumes and the fact that the Titans cast continues to grow. A number of other smaller characters from the comics have been teased, but hints that Superboy may appear on Titans are perhaps the most intriguing. Aside from Kid Flash, who is unlikely to appear as he’s a character in the Arrowverse, Cyborg remains the only long-standing Teen Titans member who isn’t confirmed for the show. That could be because of his role in the DCEU, but that, too, may be in question.

With so much of DC’s film slate nebulous at the moment, there’s the question of whether the Cyborg movie is happening? For fans of the various Teen Titans comics and animated shows, Cyborg will be a big oversight when it comes to Titans. Of course, he may arrive in the DC Universe realm, after all.

Cyborg appeared in a Doom Patrol audition tape, strongly suggesting the hero will be in the upcoming DC Universe show. Given that series will spin out of Titans, it would see Cyborg could in fact be on the flagship show. If nothing else, his role in season 2 seems assured (if it gets the go-ahead). Hopefully, a release date for Titans will be announced during San Diego Comic-Con – but stay tuned for more production information in the meantime.

3Novices : Fallen Kingdom Overcorrected Jurassic World’s Shoe Problem

Mild SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom overcorrects the problem with Claire’s high heels in Jurassic World, making the film series’ shoe issue even worse. In 2015, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World revived the Jurassic Park franchise with a new installment that was a direct sequel to the original, and ignored the continuity of The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III. After Jurassic World earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, Trevorrow’s plans for a new dino-focused trilogy became closer to a reality. Now, the middle chapter of the Jurassic World trilogy is here as J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters.

Fallen Kingdom continues the stories of Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) – but it also picks up one particular thread from Jurassic World. In the wake of Jurassic World’s release, the film was criticized for featuring Claire wearing high heels throughout, including when she’s running from a T-Rex. It became such a big talking point that Howard responded to Claire’s heels in Jurassic World, explaining it was a character choice. Still, Claire’s heels were a sticking point for many viewers, and the filmmakers made a point of addressing the issue in Fallen Kingdom – but they overcorrected a bit.

Now that the film is out, we know Fallen Kingdom makes it a point to focus the camera on what kind of shoes Claire is wearing on three separate occasions. Twice, Claire is depicted wearing high heels – once when entering the office of the Dinosaur Protection Group, then again for her meeting at the Lockwood Estate. When Claire arrives on Isla Nublar to help rescue the dinosaurs, the camera once again focuses in on her shoes, and this time she’s wearing flat-heeled boots.

Undoubtedly, all three shots are meant to address the concerns that viewers had after Jurassic World. It didn’t make very much sense for Claire to run in heels in Jurassic World, and Fallen Kingdom clearly wants to showcase that the filmmakers learned from the first film. However, three distinct shots of Claire’s shoes is an overcorrection from Jurassic World. Once is cheeky, twice is starting to wear out the joke, three is overkill. Further, since the shots often start at Claire’s shoes and pan up her body, they border on leering, though the use of the male gaze in film is a separate issue.

Still, Howard has been adamant that Claire’s choice of shoes is key to her character in the Jurassic World series. Certainly, it makes sense for Claire to wear heels to work in an office and for a meeting, then change into boots when heading to the wild terrain of Isla Nublar. However, it’s Fallen Kingdom’s attention to Claire’s shoes that goes eye-rollingly far. Three distinct closeup shots of Claire’s choice of footwear is unnecessary. Viewers who knew about the debate following Jurassic World would get the joke in the first shoe shot, and definitely by the second scene that opens on her feet. Including a third is an overcorrection that draws too much attention to whether Claire is wearing heels or not. Essentially, in trying to fix the problem from Jurassic WorldJurassic World: Fallen Kingdom makes it even worse – not better.

3Novices : Supernatural: 11 Couples That Hurt The Show (And 9 That Saved It)

With 13 seasons under its belt and a 14th on its way, the TV show Supernatural has had its share of romantic subplots throughout its long history. Over the years, both the main characters, Sam and Dean, have had quite a few romantic partners. Other characters on the series have also had their share of romances throughout the seasons.

Some of these couplings made a lot of sense and made the show even better. They helped further certain storylines and set events in motion that led to bigger and better episodes. This, in turn, led to bigger and better seasons.

Other romances, though, just simply didn’t work. Or even if they did work, they served to demean certain characters (even being excuses to write them off the show) or helped further storylines along that just really weren’t all that great. Some of these romances were completely unnecessary and made many fans wonder why the writers even bothered.

Such is often the case with a series with so much time under its belt. Fans have watched Sam and Dean go from young twenty-somethings to much older men, with different hopes, dreams and fears. That goes for the other characters, too: character development is not something the show is without. But when that character development involves romantic relationships, it’s not always good – and it’s sometimes outright bad. Then again, it’s also sometimes just what the show needed at the time.

Here are Supernatural: 11 Couples That Hurt The Show (And 9 That Saved It).

3Novices : How The Eternals Can Fit Into Avengers 4

There are rumors the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 could actually feature Kronos and the Eternals. There’s a sense in which that’s hardly a surprisel; Marvel is known to be working on an Eternals movie as part of the post-Phase 3 MCU, and Jim Starlin recently hinted that Avengers 4 would introduce another one of his comic book characters.

Avengers: Infinity War set up the Eternals in a number of subtle ways. When the Red Skull speaks to Thanos, he identifies him as the son of A’lars. That’s a crucial detail, given that in the comics A’lars (sometimes known as Mentor) isn’t just Thanos’s father. He’s also the founder of the Eternals. There’s a brief scene where Thanos uses the Reality Stone to show Titan in its glory days, and the beings there are clearly humanoid – and, just as in the comics, don’t share Thanos’s distinctive physical appearance. While Thanos is an Eternal in the comics, he possesses the Deviant gene, making him appear significantly different than the rest of his race. It seems that’s true in the MCU as well. VFX supervisor Matt Aitken told Screen Rant that this was originally a longer sequence, and would have involved a clearer glimpse of Titan’s inhabitants.

But could Avengers 4 actually continue this setup, and even introduce one specific Eternal, the powerful Kronos? Let’s explore the evidence and the possibilities.

Kronos Could Appear in the MCU

In the comics, Kronos is one of the most powerful of the Eternals. A scientist, one of his experiments went tragically wrong and destroyed his body. His mind, however, became one with the universe. He’s essentially the master of time, and Thanos has classified him as having the same kind of power-level as Galactus or Odin. As an embodiment of time itself, Kronos can exert an unknown degree of control over the passage of time, although he prefers to be subtle in his use of this power. Created by Jim Starlin, Kronos is the grandfather of Thanos, and played a role in opposing the Mad Titan in the famous Infinity Gauntlet arc.

There are a growing number of rumors that Kronos will actually appear in Avengers 4. One Reddit user claimed he has a friend who’s working on the film, and that he’s been shown concept art for the powerful Eternal. According to the Redditor, instead of being purple as in the comics, the character is more black-and-white. This rumor has been supported by MCUCosmic, claiming a previously-reliable source has reached out to them confirming Kronos will appear in the movie.

It would certainly make sense for Kronos to be introduced in Avengers 4; there’s strong evidence the Avengers will use time-travel to avert the cliffhanger ending of Avengers: Infinity War, preventing the deaths of half the lives in the universe. Meanwhile, in November last year a major potential leak – which accurately predicted a lot of major plot twists in Avengers: Infinity War – hinted at just how Kronos could play a part in the film. They claimed that there’s a pivotal scene between Doctor Strange and a fully CGI character being shot in a secret location, with a skeleton crew. Given Doctor Strange used the Time Stone while on Titan in Avengers: Infinity War, it’s possible he caught the eye of Kronos, and the two put together a plan to defeat Thanos. If so, this scene could show how Doctor Strange and Kronos conspired to defeat the Mad Titan.

It’s important to stress that this is still rumor at this point. The sources reporting it have been hit-and-miss in the past, but at the same time, there’s a fascinating degree of repetition, increasing the chances these leaks are actually accurate. What’s more, Kronos’s presence would fit very well with what we’re expecting for Avengers 4.
