Cruel 2

In a related way, The uninitiated alleges Taylor Swift is courted to play villain in not-so-fortuitous situation musical following Cruel. Are we facing another deep impact/Armageddon script?

Kraven the hunter

Alessandra Nivola discussed playing her undisclosed Kraven the hunter villain in a recent interview with THR.

It’s just a great character part, and I didn’t have to do any CGI. I didn’t have to do a green screen. I only transform, physically, in the final moments of the movie, so it’s just a classic villain role. There was some really interesting and complex psychology and personal history to build on, and the movie has a time jump, so the character changes a lot from how he is at the start of the movie. It was as much of an acting opportunity as any other movie I’ve done, and I didn’t have to just wear a spandex outfit or something. (Laughs.)

The Karate Kid Cinematic Universe

Ralph Macchio also said there was a possibility Cobra Kai will spawn its own”Karate Kid Cinematic Universe” in a conversation with comics.

The thing that was created, there’s kind of this Karate Kid cinematic universe now where Cobra KaI’m, you know, at the center of that and when that day comes around for a landing, there are other areas to tap into. I mean, whatever… is there a Miyagi origin story? is there Cobra Kai prequel before The Karate Kid? Are there any spinoffs with some of the young actors of these characters? Who knows? But we’re not done until we’re given the opportunity to really integrate it. As long as it evolves organically, these guys writing the show really have their finger on the pulse of that. There’s stuff they wrote in season 3 that didn’t happen until season 4 because there was no more room in season 3. There’s stuff that was in season 5 that we know we’ve shot and that are being held up for the future if we get that green light, so there’s more to come, we hope.
