Captain Marvel

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Clark Gregg teased his first meeting with Nick Fury as a “meet cute” moment, adding, “I don’t think Sam [Jackson] will put it that way.”

“He’s a relatively new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who is obsessed with MC Hammer and dresses just like him, and it makes Director Fury so angry,” Gregg quips, “The genie pants don’t really go with the Armani.”

Hatchet 5 & 6

Despite the character being torn apart by an airplane engine at the end of his last outing, franchise director Adam Green revealed two more Victor Crowley movies are in the works during a recent interview with Horror Channel.

A major reason why the Hatchet sequels have succeeded is that they were planned out from the very start. In the first film, I actually showed some of the weapons that Victor Crowley wouldn’t actually use until the later films and I held back crucial elements of his mythology to be revealed later on down the road. Of course, it was also a risky move given that there was no way of knowing if I’d ever get to make the sequels.

Originally I had only planned for Hatchet to be a trilogy, but when I decided to bring ‘Victor Crowley’ back for more I planned out another complete roadmap for where it could all go. With the success of Victor Crowley (Hatchet 4) it looks like I’ll once again be able to make the sequels I have planned. I’ve been able to stay in love with Victor Crowley because I only head back into his swamp when I’m ready to do so. Given that Hatchet is a cult franchise and not a studio property, my crew and I have always been able to make each film only when we want to. The “Hatchet Army” has always been willing to patiently wait until I’m ready. Not every filmmaker has such a luxury and I have never taken it for granted.

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies UK, Charlie Cox revealed season three will include “an homage” to the infamous hallway fight scene from season one.

The one thing that I am excited about is that we do have a scene in the show that is an homage to the corridor scene from series one. I’m very excited about the fans to see that.
