The Rock, Kevin Hart and Sony’s Jumanji sequel has added another familiar face to its cast, this time in the form of Danny Glover.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Glover’s casting in the film, alongside franchise newcomers Awkwafina and Danny DeVito, in addition to Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan reprising their roles from Welcome to the Jungle.
No word on who Glover will be playing in the film, but he’s a welcome addition to any cast, and it’ll be fun getting to see him play a part in this world. Similarly, there aren’t many details on what plot the sequel will have, but anything’s possible. Seeing as how the Jumanji video game was destroyed by the teenagers at the end of the first movie, maybe we’ll see what the game was like before they were the ones to play it. Just an idea.
What do you think will happen in the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel? Are you hyped that Danny Glover is joining the cast? Let us know in the comments!!
Welcome to the Jungle continues the legend of Jumanji introduced in the 1995 family film starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst. In the sequel, four high schoolers discover Jumanji, now in the form of an old video game, and are sucked into the jungles of the game, taking on the form of very different avatars who must beat the story in order to return to the real world.
Directed by Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is now available on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray and DVD. The film’s cast also includes Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, Maribeth Monroe, Missi Pyle, Purab Kohli, Rhys Darby, Tim Matheson, Marc Evan Jackson, and Bobby Cannavale.
What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP
Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.
1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.
Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home.
2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home
Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.
3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic Affair
This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.
4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury
The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.
The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?
5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus
During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:
“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”
Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
