If you know any kids that this may help uplift feel free to take it. pic.twitter.com/SIAlSvNGTK— Atlanta Filming (@AtlantaFilming) September 23, 2017It’s Rudd’s stunt double, Brett Smrz, who could probably be something of a real-life superhero for a lot of people. You might notice in the photo that Smrz wears a prosthetic leg. He has for ten years, since he lost his left leg in a trampoline accident, according to JustJared. That detail turns an otherwise normal set photo into something inspiring. Smrz lost a limb and now he does all the coolest action shots on a gigantic Marvel superhero movie. Never let anyone tell you something’s impossible.In other exciting news from the MCU, it looks like Agent Peggy Carter could possibly make a return. After becoming a fan-favorite character in Captain America: The First Avenger, she made brief appearances in both sequels, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. She also had a two-season TV series on ABC which, though the second season wasn’t quite as good as the first, remains the best MCU show to air on ABC. Marvel fans just can’t get enough of her. Well good news, we might get a little more.Speculation first started up when actress Haley Atwell paid a visit to Marvel Studios, according to CBR. Ant-Man had a pretty good costume in his first movie, but a sequel calls for some fresh new clothes. Thanks to a set photo taken by Atlanta photographer Joe Passori, we have a full picture of Scott Lang’s new suit. Why does Scott need a new costume? Nobody knows yet. With all the hype for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War, we don’t have any plot details for this one yet. Since he’s getting a new suit though, that probably means he has to have Hank Pym make it for him. They wouldn’t have him break into Pym’s house a second time, right? In any case, the new suit sure looks cool. Not as cool as the person in it, though. (No, not Paul Rudd.)

Possibly to discuss a role in an upcoming Marvel movie. That theory only gained traction when Central Casting’s Georgia branch put out a call for actresses to play engineers in a short scene on “Mary Lou.” This is now known to be the code name for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. (For those who don’t know, Central Casting is an agency that places background actors for TV shows and movies.) The casting notice mentioned “No dye, no modern colors or cuts” as hair requirements. That points to a flashback scene, which would almost assuredly involve Agent Carter. Then, over the weekend, this happened.center_img That’s Atwell on a set with motion-capture dots on her face. While she could be shooting her next film, Christopher Robin, her role in that is unlikely to need motion capture. If she were playing Carter, though? Depending on when her scene takes place, she probably needs to be aged up, much like she was in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Nothing is for sure right now, but a return to the MCU looks like the most probable answer. That’s exciting. Marvel could always use more Agent Carter.Tom Hiddleston as Loki in Thor: Ragnarok. (Photo via Marvel Studios)Carter wouldn’t be the only character to be making a return soon. As we already know, Tom Hiddleston is reprising his role as Loki in Thor: Ragnarok. In an interview with The Times of India, Hiddleston expressed surprise at the fact that he’s still playing the role. He does have a point. It is rare for the villain of a comic book movie to stick around past their first appearance. Now, not only is he in all three Thor movies, he got to be the main villain in The Avengers.“It is a source of constant surprise to me that I’m still here. I never expected that when I started playing him. I feel a huge responsibility to deliver the character people know, even though it’s been four years since I last played him, and also to try to take him in new directions,” he said.Hiddleston mentioned that last part is a particularly interesting challenge because Loki’s motivations seem to change in each movie. “I’ve spent six or seven years of my life trying to get to the bottom of what exactly it is that he wants. When he seems to get close to what he wants-power, acceptance, belonging-he changes direction.” That could be the product of having different screenwriters for each movie, all of them with their own take on the character. Hiddleston points out that the ambiguous goals aren’t out of line for a character like Loki. “I think that is the thing that keeps him interesting in a way. He’s cunning and transformative and changeable, and will do everything he can to survive. He’s the trickster. He’s the God of mischief,” he said.Though it may surprise Hiddleston that he’s still kicking around the MCU, it doesn’t surprise us. He’s consistently the most charming villain in the entire series. He’s funny, cunning and just a little bit pathetic. Hiddleston plays all his varying traits and wants so endearingly that we won’t complain if he ends up sticking around far beyond Thor: Ragnarok.Hiddleston says when he first put on the costume again for Thor: Ragnarok, it felt like seeing an old friend. I think we all feel similarly whenever he appears in a new trailer. We’ll get to spend more time with our old friend when Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img
