Did Shuri save Vision?

Sounds like Shuri swerved Thanos snap

British actress Letitia Wright will be spreading her brilliant comedic-timing further afield in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It has reportedly been confirmed that the actress will reprise her role as Shuri in the anticipated Avengers 4 in 2019 and the Black Panther sequel.

We are totally ready for those slick, witty one-liners, girl.

Following her star-turn in Black Panther, the fan-favourite character did appear in Avengers: Infinity War in April and it seems she really did survive Thanos potentially fatal finger snap.

According to Deadline, Letitia, 25, recently wrapped filming on-set of Avengers 4, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and its believed Shuri was appearing in the productions reshoots.

Shuris fate was left up in the air in Infinity War with her being knocked aside by Corvus Glaive when Thanos charged into Wakanda to steal Visions Mind Stone.

Letitias Black Panther co-star, Angela Bassett, recently leaked the news of Shuris return, when confirming that two Wakandans survived Thanos snap, telling Screen Rant in July: No. Neither did my daughter. Shuri, shes a bright girl there in Wakanda. So…

So… well take that as our girl Shuri is definitely back.

Shuri won over hearts in the first installment of Black Panther, with her fierce attitude and brilliant humour – What are thoooose? – so her return will be welcomed with open arms by Marvel fans.

In addition to Avengers and Black Panther, Letitia has also signed up to star alongside John Boyega in sci-fi romance Hold Back the Stars, directed by Mike Cahill. Its being pipped as a Romeo and Juliet meets Gravity and, frankly, sounds like something we are totally down for.

More: Avengers

The movie is an adaption of Katie Khans novel about a couple from a dystopian Earth who recall their romance while trapped in the depths of space with a rapidly diminishing oxygen supply.

Sounds like a real trip.

Avengers 4 is set to hit screens on 27 April although a trailer is yet to be released.

Capernaum Director On The High Price Children Are Paying For Societys Mistakes — Awardsline Screening Series

Watching Capernaum, Lebanons entry in 2018 for Best Foreign Language Film, one point becomes immedia..

Watching Capernaum, Lebanons entry in 2018 for Best Foreign Language Film, one point becomes immediately clear: Only a truly dedicated, humanistic director could make such a film, experiencing first-hand so many sorrows so that others around the world might understand. In the case of the Cannes title, which won the fests Jury Prize, that director is Nadine Labaki, an esteemed Lebanese filmmaker who had already made her way down the Croisette a number of times before. Based on the directors experiences in her home country, seeing children become a ubiquitous presence on the street, the social drama follows 12-year-old Zain (played by real-life Syrian refugee Zain Al Rafeea), an abused and neglected child who has had to grow up much too fast, serving a five-year sentence for a violet crime, while suing his own parents for the very act of bringing him into the world.

Sitting down with her young star last night—along with producer/composer Khaled Mouzanar—following an Awardsline screening of the film, Labaki reflected on the anger, frustration and sense of responsibility that pushed her forward in her work. “At the end of the day, those children are really paying a very high price for our conflicts, and our wars, and our systems, and our stupid decisions, and governments,” she said. “I felt the need to talk about the problem, and I was thinking, if those children could talk, or could express themselves, what would they say? What would they tell us, this society that ignores them?”

One of many stunning non-pressional actors that populate the film, Al Rafeea was feeling the pain and suffering of his character (who took his own name) precisely because he had been in the exact same places himself. “Zain…never went to school because his parents couldnt put him in school. The only difference from the film is that he has loving parents. But still, they couldnt give him what he needed,” Labaki said. “Zain grew up on the streets; his school was those streets, [and] he knows the violence of the streets.”

Using street casting for the sake of authenticity, producer Mouzanar found that the main challenge the production posed was time. “We knew from the beginning that we needed a lot of time to reach this result, so thats why we decided to produce the film ourselves,” he noted. “We had six months of shooting. We are still not out of it, I think.”

A quiet presence throughout much of the nights panel, Al Rafeea also made one of the nights most important points, courtesy of Labakis translation. “If parents are not able to raise their children properly, they shouldnt have them—and the government should also help,” he said. “Because its also the governments fault.”

EastEnders fans have, for a long time, been calling for a romance for Louise Mitchell and Keegan Baker – ever since he arrived in Walford, Keegan has been harbouring feelings for his friend and in the wake of Shakil Kazemis death, they grew closer still.

In upcoming scenes, the pair will declare their feelings for one another and take things to the next level – but when Phil suddenly returns home without warning while they are getting passionate, will they be caught in the act? And will Keegan be facing serious harm?

Louise faced a horrible experience earlier in the year when Hunter Owen used her for sex and took her virginity all to wind Phil up. Keegan however, has much deeper feelings for Louise and she is beginning to reciprocate.

(Picture: BBC)

Its actually Ray Kelly who encourages Louise to speak to Keegan so she invites him round. Unaware that Sharon is, umm, busy with Keanu upstairs, Louise has a heart to heart with Keegan and they declare their feelings for one another before kissing.
