Warner Brothers’ Fantastic Beasts film franchise has given Harry Potter fans a look at a piece of history before the young wizard went on to save the world. So far, the two films have explored different geographical locations, with Where to Find Them (2016) set in New York, and The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) set in Paris.
Now the franchise heads to a new direction. This time they are heading to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Not only that but author J.K. Rowling will be penning the script with Steve Kloves. More on all of this below.

Fans of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be excited to know that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female standalone film is now available on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital. Though it may not leave as much of an impression on fans as an Avengers ensemble film, as a standalone it is able to leave a lasting impact because of its themes and added layers, which makes it better than any traditional action flick.
Filled with some insightful and powerful thematic bonus features, Captain Marvel will surely be a great addition to the collection of any fan of Marvel Studios or superhero films in general. Check out the review below.
Recently Geeks of Doom was invited to attend the Captain Marvel press conference, where we got to chat with stars Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson).
In this interview, Larson, Lynch, and Chan talk about being more than just a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. See what they had to say below.
Though there have been many strong female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel is the first time that Marvel Studios brings its fans a female superhero standalone film. The film sees Brie Larson play Carol Danvers, a highly skilled soldier of Star Force, an elite Kree peacekeeping force, separated from her troop when she crash lands on the planet Earth. Determined to reunite with her team, she soon discovers that she has a deep connection with this planet, and starts to search for the clues that could help unlock the memories of her mysterious past.
We were invited to attend the Captain Marvel press junket with our fellow journalists to talk to Larson, Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), and Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva). Additionally, MCU alum members Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) also attended to chat about appearing in the upcoming film.
As much as this is a continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel holds so much more meaning for the studio. It’s Marvel Studios’ first female standalone film, and one with such an empowering message and a character who will be a symbol of inspiration to everyone, especially young girls. And that would not have been possible without directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who took their character-driven story approach to the upcoming film. Find out more about their leap from small films to Marvel Studio blockbuster tentpoles below.
Sherlock Holmes 3 has been one of those films that just can’t lock in a release date for one reason or another. A lot of that has to do with the fact that Robert Downey Jr. (Sherlock Holmes) and Jude Law (John Watson) are busy people working on various projects, and the script is being worked out. As such, the capper to the trilogy has been pushed back from time to time.
So it comes as no surprise that the final chapter in that trilogy has now been pushed back to a 2021 release. More on the report below.
