The Ending Of Doctor Who Season 10 Explained

Published

on

l intro 1650448876

Acerbic and alien as he may be, the Twelfth Doctor is a fantastic speaker even by sky-high “Doctor Who” standards, and Peter Capaldi is the human personification of gravitas. Twelve has a seemingly unending supply of iconic speeches and monologues, so it’s only fitting that the last one he delivers is … to himself. 

At the end of “Twice Upon a Time,” the Doctor has finally made peace with his impeding regeneration. True to form, however, he holds off the face-changing fireworks in order to deliver a magnificent, three-minute list of life lessons to his successor-self. Apart from delivering some sage advice on the edibility of pears, he imparts plenty of genuine wisdom. “Never be cruel, never be cowardly,” he says. “Remember, hate is always foolish, and love is always wise. Always try to be nice, but never fail to be kind.” Right before letting go, he distills his message to six words: “Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.”

Since this is quite literally the Doctor talking to himself, it’s clear that the words come straight from the heart(s). However, there just might be something more to it. Twelve is well aware that the reincarnation process can be affected to an extent, and has even done so in the past. After all, he himself instinctively chose the face of a former acquintance, Roman noble Caecilius (also played by Capaldi), to remind himself of his moral duty to save people no matter how grim the situation seems. It just so happens that the advice ends up being a pretty accurate description of its intended recipient, the brave. kind, and friendly Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker). In essence, the Twelfth Doctor’s final speech is more than just a cool monologue, or even a goodbye: It’s a sneak peek into the character’s future.

She-Hulk Trailer Pulls in Second Highest 24 Hour Audience For an MCU Show

Published

She Hulk trailer

The She-Hulk trailer may have brought a mixed reaction from fans, with some criticizing the design of Marvel’s latest addition to the MCU and others not massively impressed with the CGI effects on display. However, the trailer now has the second largest debut for a Marvel Studios Disney+ series with a massive 78 million views in the first 24 hours, which puts it behind only The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which had the added benefit of being released to a Super Bowl audience.

The arrival of Jennifer Walters in the MCU has been one of the most anticipated Disney+ shows of the year. For that reason, it has not been surprising to see so much interest in the first full trailer for the series, especially when it contains the first actual footage of Tatiana Maslany’s green giant in action. Appearing alongside Mark Ruffalo’s Smart Hulk, the character is seen as both her regular human self and her transformed jade giant alter-ego, and not everyone was immediately sold on what they saw.

It was first believed that She-Hulk was going to be released on Disney+ sometime around now, but instead, there is still a three-month wait until the show premieres in the middle of August. Many have speculated whether the rumored May release was at one time correct and Marvel Studios decided to delay the show to give them more time on the CGI work needed to make the many hulked out characters come to life convincingly on screen. While this is something we will probably never know for sure, it is not unfair to say that there are some fans who hope that this is true and there will be some slight adjustments made to She-Hulk before her late summer debut.

While recent series Moon Knight made a big play to be almost completely outside the ongoing MCU narrative, She-Hulk is a return to a connected universe with a number of crossovers already apparent from the trailer. As well as the return of Ruffalo’s Hulk, the trailer reintroduces Tim Roth’s Emil Blonksky/Abomination, who was missing from the MCU until a shock appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings where he was last seen being led by Wong through a sling-ring portal to a then undisclosed location. From the trailer, we now know that he was led to a holding cell that has been seen again in the She-Hulk trailer. Based on the timeline of events, this could mean that we will see Ruffalo become Bruce Banner again by the end of the series, which would then tie into his appearance in ... credit scene of Shang-Chi.

While there are a number of rumors around who else could turn up in the series thanks to She-Hulk’s many comic book connections to other characters, and the fact that she is heading up a law department specializing in superhero cases, there is a lot more to be seen in the 9-episode series when it premieres on August 17 on Disney+.

Bruce Campbell Teases Something 'Strange' in Mysterious Social Media Post

Published

We all know by now that Bruce Campbell makes a cameo appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but with that secret out of the bag and in cinemas, the Evil Dead star has been teasing and confusing fans with his latest post on Twitter. In the new post, Campbell seems to suggest that he has been filming something new that can be linked back to the hashtag of #Strange, which has fans speculating whether this is something related to Doctor Strange, Stranger Things or something different entirely.

Bruce Campbell has become an icon of cinema thanks in most part to his frequent appearances as Ash Williams, the man who fought the Evil Dead and pretty much lost every single time. However, he has also become known for making cameo appearances in Sam Raimi movies, and has appeared in dozens of the other movies and TV shows over the last four decades. Following his recent appearance in the Raimi directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it was thought that Campbell’s “strange” work was done, but it seems that something else strange is afoot with the actor.

In a mysterious Tweet, Campbell shared an image of himself on a set with cracks in the floor, being illumined by spotlights while standing surrounded by mirrors. All he said in relation to ... was, “Did something #Strange the other day.” While this gives no real idea what Campbell has been filming, the obvious speculation from fans was that he was working on something related to either Doctor Strange, or perhaps even the upcoming season of Stranger Things. However, in both cases, filming was completed on these a long while ago, and unless Campbell was shooting some kind of last minute reshoot for Stranger Things, it seems unlikely that either of these are the answer.

With fan speculation as to what Campbell’s post alludes to filling up his Twitter comments, there has been another possible meaning behind ... offered up. The TV series Ripley’s Believe it or Not made a return in 2019 with Campbell as host, and the series is certainly well known for dealing with the strange and unusual. While Campbell’s suited appearance in the image could well fit with that theory, the set, complete with its multiple mirrors and very dark setting, doesn’t quite seem to fit with the show either.

In the end, there is only going to be one way that we find out exactly what Bruce Campbell is up to, and that is when Bruce Campbell feels like sharing more information. With a tease like this, it will probably not be too long before the movie star offers up some more details on what he has been filming and until then all we can do is sit tight and wait.

Bruce Campbell is currently appearing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in cinemas, and also as a computer generated version of Ash Williams in the new Evil Dead: The Game, which recently sold over 500,000 copies in its first week.
