Ayesha and the Sovereign May Return in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 introduced audiences to the Queen Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) and the Sovereign, who became potential villains after the Guardians betray them. Even though they weren’t the main villains, they did leave a mark that could bring them back for the threequel as the Big Bads. Chatting with IGN, director James Gunn did confirm that he wants to bring Ayesha back, which we know will happen after how the film ended.
I absolutely plan on bringing Elizabeth Debicki back. She’s actually one of my favorite actors I’ve ever worked with. I think on this movie between her, Pom Klementieff who plays Mantis, and Chris Sullivan who plays Taserface, they really were three of the best actors I’ve ever worked with and were all such a joy on this film to deal with that I would love to deal with them again.
So it will be interesting to see how Ayesha and her kingdom will come into the storyline for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. What do you guys think? Do you want to see Ayesha return as the main villain?
Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra To Have a Connection With All Four Heroes in The Defenders
Sigourney Weaver’s character Alexandra will be the main villain for the upcoming miniseries The Defenders on Netflix, but what will bring all four of our heroes together to fight her? Well, Luke Cage’s Mike Colter seems to know the answer, revealing that she seems to have a connection to him and the rest of the street-level heroes. So what connection will she have with them? Whatever the connection is, Colter says that we can get our answers when all episodes of The Defenders drop in August. Speaking with TV Guide, he said:
The villains that we’re dealing with are a combination of several entities, um, and they all have something to do with our separate stories that have played out in each of our own individual series. So this has been going on for a while. It wasn’t obvious in each individual series, but in this series you’ll find out that the things that happened to all of us basically were all because of one entity and that’s what’s gonna kind of tie things together and then we’ll see that, we’ll understand that, and before you know it, eventually we’ll fight together… or not.
The Defenders will release on Netflix on August 18 with all eight episodes.
Mon-El May Possibly Suit Up in Supergirl’s Third Season
Mon-El (Chris Wood) had a big role during the current season of Supergirl, however, we haven’t seen him suit up like the comics. Well, EP Andrew Kreisberg recently revealed that he might suit up sooner than you think. Speaking with TVLine, Kreisberg explained that it will happen soon. “I can’t say right now,” he teased, “But I wouldn’t be surprised if one day you got to see that.” So it could happen in season three, but nothing has been set in stone yet. Having Mon-El get a suit makes sense since he has already developed into a hero alongside Kara. What do you think?
