Stranger Things 4: Maya Hawke AKA Robin Shares CRAZY Climax Details About The Upcoming Season & Joe Keery AKA Steve’s Fate

Stranger Things by Netflix is one of the most popular series in the world. It has a massive fan following and its upcoming season is one of the most anticipated ones. The first season came in 2017 and ever since that, the show has been crazy popular among the viewers and fans. There are so many friendships that we adore in the show but any guesses, which one stole the show in the last season? It was undoubtedly Joe Keery’s Steve and Maya Hawke’s Robin.

Steve and Robin happened to be former enemies in high school. Now, all of us know that Steve follows a huge fan following among girls in school because of good looks, good looks and good looks but Robin never really adored him for the same.

Steve started working at a local ice cream parlour, Scoops Ahoy and Robin has been working there for a while and that’s how the two became co-workers and friends. The chemistry between them in Stranger Things 3 will keep you at the edge. Steve started liking Robin and when he tried to kiss her in the last season, Robin revealed that she’s gay. That came as heartbreak for all the fans but we are glad that their friendship had a special connection.

Talking about their bond in an interview with Variety, Maya said, “It’s very refreshing to see a bond between a man and a woman that isn’t transactional, that isn’t romantic. It’s their togetherness that comes as a true friendship in understanding through opposition. Seeing that is almost revolutionary.”

Maya aka Robin also gave the hint for the upcoming season 4 and said, “A new horror is beginning to surface, something long buried, something that connects everything.”

A while ago, the makers of the show released the teaser of season 4 and we saw David Harbour aka Jim Hopper alive in Russia. That surely came as a breather for fans.

This includes Finn Wolfhard (Mike), Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), Sadie Sink (Max) Joe Keery (Steve Harrington), David Harbour (Hopper), Maya Hawke (Robin) and Erica (Priah Ferguson).

There has been no official announcement by Netflix on the release date of the upcoming season but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’ll be mostly released next year.

‘Star Trek’ Alum George Takei and His Brother Are Both Named After Famous British Royals

Published

By

Legendary actor George Takei is most famous for his role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek: The Original Series. Now over 80 years old, Takei keeps himself active by advocating for human rights (mostly for the LGBTQ community, which he’s a part of, but he’s also vocal about racism and the Japanese-American community) on his social media platforms. He has a whopping 3 million followers on Twitter and is definitely considered one of the coolest “old guys” in the industry. 

There’s one fact about Takei that isn’t well-known, and that’s the origin and meaning behind his first name, George. So who was the Star Trek star named after, and why did his parents choose that name?

Who is George Takei?

George Takei was actually born with the name Tosato Takei in Los Angeles, California to Japanese-American parents, according to IMDb. He was born in 1937, making him perhaps one of the oldest stars with a social media presence alive today at 83 years old. He lived quite a traumatic childhood due to structural racism and was thrown in a Japanese internment camp with his family when he was only a young boy.

Luckily for us, Takei survived the camp, and graduated from UCLA as a theater arts major, and played roles in several university productions there. His first major break came in 1966, when he snagged a recurring role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek: The Original Series. He’s gone on to play his original character in six different Star Trek films. Because the series was so popular, Takei became a legendary figure in Star Trek fandom.

Who were George and Henry Takei named after?

While Takei was originally born Tosato, his father decided to give both him and his brother another name after they were born. Those names were George and Henry. If you think the names sound quite British in comparison with Tosato, you’re right. The Huffington Post revealed that Takei was named after King George VI of England, whose coronation came just a few weeks after Takei’s birth. Takei’s brother, Henry, is also named after a British royal: King Henry III. 

But why did this Japanese-American man decide to name his two sons after British royals? In the 2014 documentary To Be Takei, Takei reveals that it was because his father was a major Anglophile. Takei apparently harbors an inexplicable affinity for the United Kingdom himself. He said once on his blog, “Those who know me know that I am an inconvertible Anglophile – or more broadly, a Britanophile, which includes my affection for Scotland and Wales as well.” It seems like a love for England runs in the family!

What is Takei doing now?

Takei seems to have gotten his happily ever after, and is happily married to husband Brad Altman. On top of advocating against the current administration and acts of injustice on his social media platforms, Takei has also written a book. Titled They Called Us Enemy, the graphic novel-memoir is a devastating account of the time Takei spent in an internment camp. It describes how he and his family were treated like animals and forced to leave their homes to be sent to Camp Rohwer in Arkansas, according to Washington Post.

Takei often uses his platform to advocate against similar immigrant camps being operated along the southern U.S. border today. One thing is for certain: Takei may have been named after British royals, but he uses his fame to be a voice for oppressed communities everywhere.

Michael Fassbender May Never Make the Jump to the MCU, But No One Would Mind If He Did

Published

on

By

Michael Fassbender is no stranger to playing comic book characters. But one franchise he hasn’t been a part of is the Disney-owned juggernaut known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The MCU features some of the best actors in the world. Fassbender likely hasn’t joined due to his commitment to another comic book movie franchise. But recent events may open up the possibility for him to join. While he never make the jump, there’s a contingent of fans who would be happy if he did. 

Michael Fassbender’s role as a Marvel character

The X-Men made it to the big screen for the first time in 2000. In that film and the initial sequels, Ian McKellen portrayed the character of Magneto, a mutant Holocaust survivor with the ability to manipulate metal. While he had a good intentions at his core — advancing the cause of mutants — the character and his militant tactics frequently pitted him as an antagonist to the X-Men. 

After the first three X-Men films, the franchise underwent something of a reboot. A prequel called X-Men: First Class showed the beginnings of Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto as younger men. In this role, Fassbender portrayed Magneto.

Fassbender subsequently assumed the role in the follow-ups to this film including X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Dark Phoenix. 

The Disney/Fox merger

While Magneto is a Marvel-owned character, Marvel Studios did not previously own the film rights to him or any of the X-Men characters. Those rights belonged to 20th Century Fox.

Fox produced and distributed all previous X-Men films, including the ones in which Fassbender donned the purple helmet.

That was true until last year. NPR reported that Disney acquired Fox for a stunning $71.3 billion. This gave Disney rights to all Fox creative properties, including the X-Men.

This left comic book fans salivating at the possibilities. In the past, the Marvel Cinematic Universe featured only the Avengers and other characters Marvel owned the film rights too — for example, until a few years ago, Sony owned the exclusive film rights to Spider-Man until a deal was struck between the company and Marvel Studios.

Characters like the X-Men and Fantastic Four were off-limits for the MCU — now, they’re on the table and it appears as though their entry into the MCU is all but inevitable at some point. 

This could mean Fassbender will enter the MCU as Magneto — though the timeline may get tricky. It could also mean Fassbender enters the MCU playing an entirely different, non-mutant character. 

What fans are saying about Michael Fassbender in the MCU

One Reddit poster suggested that several X-Men and Fantastic Four actors should become a part of the MCU: namely Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Miles Teller, and Nicholas Hoult. One fan agreed, saying Fassbender should take up the role of iconic Marvel villain and Reed Richards enemy Dr. Doom.

There’s no shortage of characters Fassbender could play. With the MCU’s wide array of personalities and characters, there are plenty that Fassbender could no doubt knock out of the park. 

Fassbender may be done as Magneto, but him returning to play another character in the MCU wouldn’t be unheard of. In the early 2000s, Chris Evans portrayed the Human Torch in the first film adaptation of the Fantastic Four only to be later cast as Captain America.

Christian Bale played one of the most legendary DC Comics characters, Bruce Wayne/Batman, before being tapped as the main villain in the next Thor film. 

So will Fassbender join the MCU? Anything’s possible. But if he does, don’t expect it to be as Magneto.
