|TOM HOLLANDIMPEACHMENTSPIDER-MANLATE NIGHT|
Movie and comic book fans have delighted for years in having hypothetical conversations as to who would win a fight between two characters. Whether it be The Terminator versus The Predator, or maybe Robo-Cop versus Batman, the possibilities are endless as to what might happen should two fictional characters come to blows. But what about Peter Parker and Peter Quill?
Thanks to the emergence of the comic book movie genre we have had the fortune of seeing a lot of superhero-on-superhero battles take place for real, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe featuring more than its fair share. One such pairing that has now been debated by the stars that play them is that of Spider-Man versus the Guardians of the Galaxy's intrepid leader Star-Lord, played by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt respectively.
Pratt: I think probably Spider-Man, right? Because you have the Iron Spider suit.
Holland: But also, without any gadgets...
Pratt: I think Peter Quill could take Peter Parker, but I think Spider-Man would probably beat up Peter Quill. However, Peter Quill never fights alone and always fights dirty. He's got the Guardians of the Galaxy. So, if you take me on, you've got to take on Drax and Rocket Racoon.
Holland: I wouldn't want to fight Drax.
Pratt: No, trick question. We'd never fight.
The Guardians of the Galaxy star sounds a little confused when he says that Peter Quill could take Peter Parker, as Peter Parker still has all of the powers of his alter ego. Perhaps he means a normal Peter Parker before he got his powers? But, if that is the case, then Quill is just beating up a nerdish kid, which is surely a matter for The Avengers, or at the very least, the police.
Chris Pratt then makes the point that Quill is not alone, with the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy having his back, to which Tom Holland states he would hate to have to fight Drax, which is more than understandable. Pratt finally puts an end to the whole debate saying the two characters would never fight, but that isn't entirely true as they have already partaken in a scuffle during the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
This particular fight has been debated by fans recently, with many taking to social media and the like to discuss how it was possible that Peter Quill held Spidey in a headlock despite the latter's enhanced strength. The answer to that question will probably never be found, but maybe Spider-Man was just having an off day. He was in space for the first time after all.
No doubt some will feel different to what Tom Holland and Chris Pratt have concluded, but as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity goes, the chances of Star-Lord and Spider-Man ever having a full-fledged fight are now extremely slim. For one thing, they have already worked alongside one another in the fight against Thanos, with both having the shared experience of being erased from existence for five years,...
Fox Business Network has severed ties with primetime host Trish Regan, who sparked controversy after claiming that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic was an “impeachment scam” around two weeks ago.
“Fox Business has parted ways with Trish Regan,” the network said in a statement. “We thank her for her contributions to the network over the years and wish her continued success in her future endeavors. We will continue our reduced live primetime schedule for the foreseeable future in an effort to allocate staff resources to continuous breaking news coverage on the coronavirus crisis.”
The network's decision stemmed from an early March segment on “Trish Regan Primetime,” the television host's now-defunct show, where Regan told a multitude of lies about the virus. Regan alleged that Democrats were singularly blaming President Donald Trump for the virus and that Democrats and left-wingers had a “need to create mass hysteria to encourage a market selloff” and “stop the economy,” all while a large graphic titled “CORONAVIRUS IMPEACHMENT SCAM” was displayed onscreen.
Regan announced that her show had been placed on hiatus on March 13, the day she hosted her final show. Regan is one of several Fox personalities and guests who have recently lied and downplayed the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro downplayed the virus' deadliness in early March, while network host Laura Ingraham, who previously taunted school shooting survivor David Hogg, then 17, for getting rejected from colleges, promoted unproven drugs in response to the pandemic. Sean Hannity previously referred to the coronavirus as a “hoax.” Conservative personality and university heir Jerry Falwell Jr. recently promoted a conspiracy theory on Fox and Friends that the coronavirus was co-created by North Korea and China to assault the United States and, like Regan, suggested that media coverage of the pandemic was politically motivated.
Though Regan's comments about the coronavirus generated particularly strong pushback, they weren't the first time that the television host had generated controversy. Regan's prior segments included accusations that Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were politically motivated and a suggestion that Ilhan Omar D-Minnesota — a favorite target for racist attacks by Trump and other prominent conservatives — was antisemitic.
Regan, who joined Fox in 2015, also aired a variety of interviews with conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, who has actively promoted the birther conspiracies about President Barack Obama's citizenship, during her time at the network.
“I have enjoyed my time at FOX and now intend to focus on my...
The coronavirus has significantly impacted the productions of practically every film and TV show in Hollywood, but as the saying goes, “the show must go on.” Late night shows are taking that saying to heart: while many productions remain temporarily shuttered, shows like The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and more are finding ways to work through this crisis to keep you entertained during this bizarre, awful stretch of world history.Late Night Shows Returning Soon Or Are Back Already
A new quarantine #minilogue from home with Vice President @JoeBiden tonight and we are returning to TELEVISION with new episodes also from my house all next week @ABCNetwork #StayHome #Eat
— Jimmy Kimmel @jimmykimmel March 26, 2020
Let’s start off with what you can watch tonight. As you can see from the tweet above, Jimmy Kimmel will be speaking with the presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on a special quarantined video that will be released to the show’s YouTube page, and new episodes of the show itself will be coming back to television starting next week. Deadline says guests will include Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Aniston, Jeff Tweedy, Grouplove and more. Presumably, they’ll all be calling in remotely.
The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon will continue to air hybrid episodes consisting of the host interviewing celebrities remotely Alec Baldwin tonight and Tina Fey tomorrow night, mixed with throwback segments of previously-aired episodes. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is already of the curve, so to speak, having been producing remote episodes this week, while Full Frontal with Samantha Bee returned from its hiatus with a remote episode last night.
John Oliver hosted a shortened episode of Last Week Tonight on March 15, but the show will be returning to HBO this Sunday, March 29. Starting Monday, March 30, you’ll be able to see new episodes of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert produced remotely by the host and his team, as well as new episodes of Conan filmed on an iPhone. And finally, a new shot-from-home episode of Real Time with Bill Maher will return to HBO on Friday, April 3.
And speaking of late night, let’s wrap this up with a shout-out to the king of late night television, Johnny Carson. Starting on April 1, Shout Factory TV which you can find on ShoutFactoryTV.com, Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, and Android apps will be making classic episodes of The Johnny Carson Show available to stream for the first time. Weirdly, its official marketing indicates that they’ll be showing a “collection of episodes from The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson’s historic run”, but The Johnny Carson Show actually...
Kacey Musgraves joined James Corden in telling a Christmas love story set to 14 holiday tunes on Thursday's Late Late Show.
Musgraves kicked off the performance by singing "Jingle Bell Rock" on the set of a holiday store. As she exited the store, Musgraves ran into Corden on the street. "I don't wanna miss out on a holiday/ But I can't stop staring at your face," Corden sang Justin Bieber's "Under the Mistletoe" to Musgraves. She responded, "I should be playing in the winter snow/ But I'ma be under the mistletoe."
The two built a snowman as they sang Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime," before moving on to several other tunes including "The Christmas Song," "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Christmas Baby Please Come Home," "Blue Christmas," and Musgraves' song "Christmas Makes Me Cry."
Late-night hosts reacted to Nancy Pelosi's statement that the House is moving forward to draft articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. Pelosi delivered the historic announcement as Democrats push toward a vote that could potentially take place before Christmas.
"The president's actions have seriously violated the Constitution," said Pelosi. "He is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit. The president has engaged in abuse of power, undermining our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections."
Stephen Colbert shared a clip of Pelosi's announcement. "After opening an inquiry into the possibility of impeachment, then reading the impeachment report and considering the impeachment options, we finally made it to the beginning of the end of the starting," said the host. "We're about to start the beginning of the middle."
Pelosi told the Democrats to "legislate, investigate, litigate" as the impeachment moves forward. Colbert joked, "As opposed to Trump's plan. 'Obfuscate, irritate, partially hydrogenate chocolate cake on the paper plate that I also ate.'"
James Corden shared the news with his audience. "It really is the most wonderful time of the year," he said. Corden questioned the many steps that are included in the impeachment process. "Are we impeaching a president or assembling a futon from IKEA?" he joked.
Following a clip from Pelosi's announcement in which she stated that "the president leaves us no choice but to act," Corden noted that "those are dramatic words." He continued, "They would be even more dramatic if the house didn't just take a nine-day Thanksgiving break. Our democracy is at stake during normal business hours."
Jimmy Kimmel added that one of the Republicans' "big talking points" was that the Democrats were rushing the impeachment process. "Now Trump says, 'Do it now fast.' A rare moment of discord," he said.
Kimmel also shared that Trump "unveiled a new, new defense." In a tweet from Dec. 4, Trump wrote, "When I said, in my phone call to the President of Ukraine, 'I would like you to do US a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it.' With the word 'us' I am referring to the United States, our Country," read the host.
"Why didn't you say that a while ago?" responded Kimmel. "That explains everything. He's the president of the us. You know, this has to be true because it took him two months to come up with it."
Over on The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah pretended to be shocked by the news. "Oh my God. They finally proposed articles of impeachment," Noah said with mock surprise. "I knew when they reserved that hearing room that this would be it, but you never know until it really happens."
James Corden revealed how Kanye West's segment of "Airpool Karaoke" came to be when he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
After calling West a "complex fellow," Corden explained that he had tried to get West to do "Carpool Karaoke" twice before. "The first time he agreed and then he canceled a few days later," he said. "The second time that Kanye canceled 'Carpool Karaoke' was so late in the day that I was driving up his road in the car with all the cameras and got this phone call saying it's been canceled."
When promoting his new album Jesus Is King, West reached out to Corden to ask if he could do the segment with his choir on a bus. After Corden agreed, West said he wanted to film the segment two days later. "I was like, 'Well, that's difficult because we need to get a truck and permits,'" he said. "He goes, 'No, I think Monday would be great.'"
After he reached out to producers, Corden learned that they wouldn't be able to film the segment until Wednesday. "Wednesday morning, 11 a.m., someone sends an email saying, 'It's not gonna happen today,'" he recalled. "We were like, 'Yeah, no shit it's not gonna happen today.'"
"This is where he's brilliant. He just then goes, 'I want to do it on an airplane.' And we go, 'OK, great. Brilliant. Why not? Let's do it on a spaceship?'" Corden said of West's last-minute request. "To his credit, he and his team get the plane."
"Being on that plane, surrounded by that choir, sitting with him — and he was in a great place and in the best mood — I will never, ever forget what that choir sounded like on that airplane," he said. "It was an astonishing thing and I really thought this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing that I'll never forget."
