JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a unique series divided into multiple parts, each focusing on a different protagonist and antagonist. It is therefore important to give characters the necessary development in the same role and Araki has shown countless times that he is excellent in this area.

RELATED: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Every Known Joestar, Ranked By Strength

Many characters in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure have undergone several changes; both good and bad. Changes in their behavior affected each game and its outcome. While most changes are fleshed out over an entire game, there are instances where characters have appeared in multiple games and exhibited behavioral changes.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Jotaro Kujo

Jotaro Kujo is the main character of Stardust Crusaders. In this particular part, Jotaro appeared as a high school student who had to save his mother from death. In Stardust Crusaders Jotaro came across as a very cold person with a very one-dimensional personality.

However, as he appeared in the other parts, Jotaro became friendlier and more mature. He calmly stayed out of the spotlight and helped the other characters develop. In particular, his involvement in ocean of stone was exceptional, as he redeemed himself in his daughter’s eyes, going so far as to sacrifice the chance to defeat Pucci to save Jolyne. His character growth was simply immaculate.

7 Jonathan Joestar

Jonathan Joestar was the very first Joestar to be introduced on the show. He was raised by his father, who was an extremely wealthy man. Unfortunately, due to his father’s immense wealth, Jonathan has become a spoiled brat.

RELATED: JoJo: Questions That Still Haven’t Been Answered

Growing up, Jonathan became an extraordinary gentleman, who treated everyone kindly, including his enemies. His courteous behavior earned him praise and admiration from those around him. When he finally died, even DIO was visibly shaken as he knew he had lost someone important.

6 Rudol Von Stroheim

Von Stroheim was originally introduced as a villain in Fight Tendency. He wanted to use the power of the Pillar Men to make Germany the greatest force in the whole world. However, after realizing he had made a mistake, he sacrificed his body to try and stop Santana.

Later, Von Stroheim made a comeback and tried to help Joseph save the world from the threat of the Pillar Men. It was quite refreshing to see a supporting character join the good side and let go of their evil ways.

5 Dion Brando

Dio’s case is complex. Initially, he came across as a mean individual who had no respect for other people’s lives. However, after multiple confrontations with Jonathan, Dio began to hide his intentions and pretend to be nice, allowing him to trick the world into thinking he had turned nice.

Once Dio’s true intentions were revealed, he only got worse. After being defeated in Part 1, he returned crueler and more powerful, but he was defeated again. By the time of his death, Dio had already met many people, who were introduced in later parts. The people he met would continue to affect the Joestar family even decades after his death.

4 Joseph Jostar

When first introduced on the show, Joseph Joestar was shown to be an easy-going individual. He also seemed arrogant as he didn’t get along with Caesar for a long time. However, as the game continued, Joseph grew more humble and respected the people he was fighting.

When he appeared in Part 4, he had gained a reputation for being a bad parent because he had never met Josuke. When he came to Morioh, he tried to gain Josuke’s trust and even went so far as to cut his wrist to help Josuke find the invisible baby.

3 Jolyne Cujoh

Jolyne’s life has not been easy, especially when she was just a young girl. She was raised by her mother as Jotaro was too busy with work. When Jolyne spoke to Jotaro in prison, he said he was trying to protect his family, but it wasn’t easy for Jolyne to come to terms with her father’s decision.

However, when Jotaro sacrificed his own life to protect Jolyne from Whitesnake’s attack, she began to understand why her father stayed away from them. Jolyne’s awareness helped her make better decisions and enabled her to save her father’s life. At the end of the stone ocean, Jolyne had become one of the best characters in the series.


2 Johnny Joestar

Johnny Joestar is the main protagonist of Steel ball racewhich is often considered the best Jojo part. Compared to the other Joestars, Johnny’s character development is on a whole different level. Initially, he was a selfish person, who followed Gyro because he wanted to regain his ability to walk again.

However, Johnny’s character slowly went through a transformation that made him a very amazing character. He became more concerned about Gyro’s well-being and wanted to protect his friend at all costs. The greatest display of his love for Gyro was when Johnny willingly gave up all of the Saint’s corpse parts to save Gyro from death.


1 Josuke Higashikata

Josuke Higashikata is the main character of the latest Jojo part- Jojolion. He also shares his name with Josuke from Part 4, so in order to avoid confusion, Josuke from Part 8 is known as Gappy. For the most part, Gappy was confused as to his identity as he had absolutely no memory of who he was in the past.

Gappy’s main goal was to regain his memories and in his quest, Gappy showed many changes in behavior. At first he believed it was him against the world, but gradually he began to trust others around him, but he continued to be ruthless when his life was in danger.

As video game consoles have become less dependent on physical media, the chances of finding an early version of a modern game have become somewhat rare. By the turn of the century, however, developers were regularly showcasing early or incomplete copies of their games at events and trade shows all over the world, and the discs they used to make sometimes made their way into the mainstream. nature.

These early versions are often highly sought after by fans, not only for their sentimental value, but also for some of the elements they feature, many of which don’t end up making it into the final version. This was exactly the case with a Shen Mue 2 Dreamcast prototype that was used in the Game Jam 2001 event, which has several unique features, including a rather unusual one related to the series’ legendary Japanese game creator, Yu Suzuki.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

RELATED: Publisher 110 Industries Hints at Possible Shenmue 4 Deal

By modifying a single line of code using software called Cheat Engine, the prototype allows players to swap out the game’s main protagonist, Ryo Hazuki, with a fully rigged model of Yu Suzuki. Players will then be able to play the entire game while controlling the veteran developer, which can lead to some incredibly fun results.

The prototype in question, which has since been dubbed the Yu Suzuki build, for obvious reasons, was purchased at Yahoo Auctions in March for ¥301,000, which equates to just over $2,300. The winning bidder was SkillJim, the co-owner of the popular Shen Mue fan site, Shenmue Dojo, which along with other members of the Shen Mue community, has spent the last few months exploring and unlocking the secrets hidden within the prototype’s four discs.

Along with being able to play as Yu Suzuki, the team also found a way to spawn in bikes using the game’s debug menu. This is somewhat significant, because even though both Shen Mue and Shen Mue 2 were to include usable bikes at some point, the feature was removed from both games prior to release. Whether there are any more secrets yet to be uncovered remains to be seen, but with GD-ROMs now available to the public, fans of the series shouldn’t wait too long to find out.

As to who owned the prototype before it fell into SkillJim’s hands, and why they waited over two decades to release it, fans will likely never know. This sort of thing is pretty common though, although the differences here are a bit more noticeable than in other examples. Just last week, a very early version of Duke Nukem forever leaked online, while the prototype of an unreleased N64 game called The Adventure of Carnivale Cenzo was made available to the public in March.

Captain Bauernschmidt is the only woman in this group. In fact, she is the only woman to have commanded an American aircraft carrier, the largest and one of the most powerful warships afloat.

“(It’s) easily one of the most amazing jobs in the world,” she told CNN.

Most people would consider that an understatement.

Bauernschmidt commands the USS Abraham Lincoln, a 97,000-ton, 1,092-foot Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. With around 5,000 people on board, it’s the equivalent of a small town at sea.

It is also one of the centerpieces of American military power. More than 60 aircraft are aboard the Lincoln, including F-35C stealth fighters, the most advanced combat aircraft in naval aviation.

U.S. aircraft carriers “stand ready to command the seas, conduct strikes, and maneuver across the electromagnetic spectrum and cyberspace. No other naval force has a comparable range and depth of combat capabilities.” , says a U.S. Navy fact sheet.

“In times of crisis, the first question leaders ask is, ‘Where are the carriers?’,” the fact sheet says.

Bauernschmidt says answering this call is a privilege.

“There is absolutely no more humble sense of responsibility than knowing that I have been chosen to lead the men and women who have chosen (to) defend our nation,” she told reporters during from a recent visit to the warship during maneuvers off Japan.

Growing up in Milwaukee, Bauernschmidt knew she had an affinity for the sea. “I’ve always loved the water, and I’ve swum and rowed competitively,” she says. But joining the navy was more practical than ambitious.

Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt, commanding officer of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, speaks with the media before the ship is en route for a deployment to San Diego, Calif., Jan. 3, 2022.

“I fell on my serve in a roundabout way.” she says. “I knew I would pay for my college education and wanted to find a major that not only interested me but would allow me to get a job to pay off my student loans.”

With a strong interest in math and science, and this love of water, she opted to major in ocean engineering.

Only a handful of colleges offered it, the US Naval Academy in Maryland being one. With tuition paid, it was Bauernschmidt’s choice.

The USS Constitution has its first female commanding officer in its 224-year history

But when she arrived on campus in Annapolis, the idea of ​​being the first woman to command an aircraft carrier wasn’t even something she thought possible.

“Absolutely not. I didn’t even realize that was an option when I started this adventure,” says Bauernschmidt.

When she entered the Naval Academy, that was not an option.

It wasn’t until November 1993—six months before Bauernschmidt graduated from that naval academy—that Congress passed legislation allowing women to serve on US Navy combat ships.

It “changed almost everything about women’s service in the Navy,” says Bauernschmidt.

A few months before graduation, Naval Academy midshipmen are allowed to apply for their first postings. Bauernschmidt chose aviation and began the path to his current command.

She learned to fly helicopters, became a flight instructor, deployed on destroyers and aircraft carriers, and eventually commanded a helicopter attack squadron.

She then attended the Naval War College, where she earned a master’s degree in strategic studies before serving in the US Secretary of State’s Office of Global Women’s Issues.

Captain Amy Bauernschmidt, commanding officer of the United States Navy aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln.

After that, Bauernschmidt attended the Navy’s nuclear power school, learning the science and engineering behind naval nuclear power plants in what the Naval Sea Systems Command calls “the most demanding academic program in the U.S. military. “.

She would need that knowledge aboard the Lincoln, which is powered by two nuclear reactors, as she became the chief executive, second in command, in 2016.

Almost five years later, after a stint at the helm of the amphibious transport dock ship USS San Diego, Bauernschmidt took command of the Abraham Lincoln.

“Each new job and opportunity has strengthened my leadership and challenged me to be the best version of myself,” says Bauernschmidt.

“I had a phenomenal career where I had incredible opportunities.”

Even the jobs she didn’t really want were opportunities, she says.

“Sometimes you’ll learn the most and grow the most in a situation or job you didn’t want to be in or do.

“Not every job I’ve had in the Navy has been a job I wanted, but I learned and got it all out of every job I could,” Bauernschmidt said.

Although she has risen to a powerful position, Bauernschmidt recognizes the many challenges that women in the Navy still face.

As of Dec. 31, only 20 percent of the Navy’s 342,000 active duty force members are women, according to service demographics.

USS Abraham Lincoln makes history as thousands of service members deploy from Naval Air Station San Diego to the North Island under the leadership of Captain Amy Bauernschmidt, the first woman to lead a carrier in history of the United States Navy, in San Diego, Calif., on January 3, 2022.

As a Department of the Navy Gender Relations Survey from February reported, “Social media is full of stories and shared experiences of sexism, discrimination, access to help, of reporting and seeking justice for sexual harassment and sexual assault. It is clear that there are challenges that must be overcome for meaningful change.”

“These are bigger challenges than the military,” says Bauernschmidt. “We are constantly working to improve the environment and programs for sailors to support our most important resource – our employees during their careers.”

At Bauernschmidt’s rank of captain and above, the Navy’s gender gap is even more stark. Only 13% of those 3,075 officers are women, according to Navy data.

US aircraft carrier, site of a race riot at sea in 1972, en route to scrapping

Bauernschmidt therefore feels an added sense of responsibility as the first woman to command an aircraft carrier, but she seems to see it as evolutionary and not revolutionary.

“Although women have achieved a lot, I look forward to the day when we no longer have to celebrate premieres,” she says.

Bauernschmidt says the support she received from the entire Navy community was crucial in bringing her to this deck on one of the greatest warships in the world. And she says she’s still learning now.

“Addressing any challenge for me starts with ownership – know your job and do your job to the fullest of your abilities every day. It’s hard to argue with someone who does an exceptional job supporting the mission and the community. ‘team,’ she says.

Families wave to the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln as it deploys from San Diego in January.

The thousands of sailors she leads challenge her and make her grow, she says.

“Leadership is difficult,” says Bauernschmidt.

“To effectively lead a team, department or command, you need to understand the organization and yourself. You need to meet them where they need a leader and you need to know yourself well enough to know how to meet them there. where they are.” she says.

His advice to his subordinates and to all those who have aspirations: to follow on a daily basis.

“I try not to just finish a task, but to take ownership of the outcome of my work,” she says.

To inspire herself, she quotes an NFL superstar, Arizona Cardinals defensive end JJ Watt: “Success does not belong to the property, it is rented and rent is due every days !”

Pay that rent and you could end up with one of the rarest jobs in the world: commander of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier.

I’m not an opening day guy. So it’s not strange at all that I didn’t wet a line yesterday.

If the opening of the fishery had not been so widely publicized, it could have passed without warning.

To be honest, it doesn’t bother me much. I don’t feel any urgency around this landmark in the calendar.

I mean, it’s not like I’ve been sitting down since last summer. My ice season has been pretty good, and as soon as conditions (personal and weather) allowed a few weeks ago, I visited a few small trout streams in cliff country.

In fact, this little overnight trip exemplifies what really gets my blood pumping: finding something new to do.

I had never been in these streams before. But they looked good on paper, and it was the perfect excuse to see a new country, spend a night between two trees deep in the woods, try to land my first brown trout and hopefully bring back something home for dinner.

I was lucky enough to tick all of these boxes, which of course is never guaranteed.

As soon as I got home, the planning started for the next adventure.

That’s how it goes; I always look forward. Whether it’s new methods, new careers or simply a new destination, my favorite thing to do is always what I haven’t done yet.

And that’s why if ever the peach feels like it’s lost its luster, I suggest you try something new.

It could be as simple as catching a walleye in the Minnesota River for the first time. Or as elaborate as learning to fly fish so you can land an arctic char the size of your leg at a fly-in camp on the other side of Canada.

If nothing else comes to mind, try adding a new fish to the “life list”. Whether it’s raw fish or game, the opportunities are probably closer than you think.

For example, few anglers in Minnesota can say they’ve caught a yellow bass; Fairmont’s lakes are full of them.

A little closer to home, German Lake appears to be a longnose gar hotspot.

Never caught flathead or river catfish? The May/June period before spawning is an excellent opportunity, and the Minnesota River is considered by many to be a world-class destination.

My own quest for species new to me has added four to my own list since the start of 2021. As an added bonus, these new species almost always come with new, sometimes extremely scenic, destinations.

I can also count at least two “new” fish by different methods this year alone.

Speaking of methods, this alone could be enough to transform an entire fishing season. For example, I plan to dedicate the next ice season to catching as many new species as possible per offload.

Another way is to become primitive. A few years ago I got the bug of trying cane sticks. (They are widely available and fairly inexpensive; who knew?)

Plus, making bobbers out of wine corks was a fun layer to add to an already rustic business.

At that time I bought a few old reels at estate and yard sales. Some are so old that they don’t have swipe controls and/or free-queuing capabilities.

I cleaned these and some of my grandfather’s old reels and started using them. They were primarily used for trolling due to their limitations, but it’s a fun way to connect to Grandpa and our wider fishing heritage, while adding a bit of a challenge.

You know what else is a challenge? Beat your own fishing records.

A few summers ago I spent a lot of time trying to find a new personal best pike. It didn’t happen back then, but it got me familiar with a few new lakes and made me a better trolling fisherman.

When I caught up with this “record” north, it was quite by accident. It was on a solo winter trip to the BWCA in pursuit of my first speckled trout, another adventure saturated with novelty – and satisfaction.

Another challenge, and one that I only considered, would be to catch all (catchable) species in a given lake. Of course, you might have to devote a lot of time to a single body of water, but it would take a lot of learning, patience, and versatility to get the job done.

I don’t know if the idea itself is entirely new, but there are over 10,000 different lakes in this state to choose from. Some might be on the easy side.

For example, the DNR lists Cleveland’s Lake Henry as having only three species: black bullhead, bluegill, yellow perch.

It doesn’t seem that difficult; one person could do it in an afternoon.

But just across the road in West Jefferson, there are about 20 species to chase (depending on what is considered catchable).

Completing the “Little Jeff Grand Slam” would take much longer, but would guarantee proof of his fishing prowess, not to mention lifetime bragging rights.

While all of these ideas revolve around doing something new for yourself, there’s yet another one that I think is worth mentioning: making a new angler. And I’m not necessarily talking about taking a kid fishing.

I mean your city sister-in-law, or that co-worker who just moved from Texas. One of those people who, saying “I’ve never fished”, may have glimpsed your astonished face.

As with our children and grandchildren, we owe it to them to provide this experience.

Will it be a challenge? Perhaps.

Will it be rewarding? Most likely.

Will you find a new fishing buddy this way? Not if you spend all your time blaspheming about how you caught all the fish in West Jefferson.

Seriously, though, given the number of ways a person can create a new fishing season, the question isn’t why anyone should try something new, but why not?

There are at least 364 chances before the next opener. Let me know how it goes.

Seriously.

And send pictures.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is the latest addition to EPCOT, slated to open Memorial Day weekend. Despite the excitement, some fans were disappointed with the ride, especially its location at EPCOT.

EPCOT, which stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, began as Walt Disney’s dream of having a future-oriented city where people could live, work and enjoy world-class experiences. Over the years, it has become a celebration of the future, the natural beauty of the Earth, the vastness of space, and cultures around the world.

Rewind: VIDEO: New ‘Guardians’ coaster pays homage to EPCOT’s forgotten past

EPCOT fans have long questioned the addition of intellectual properties to Disney Park, as it intentionally opened without them, instead focusing on the wonders of learning and imagination. Over the years, in the face of critical fan response, EPCOT replaced Norway’s Maelstrom with Frozen Ever After, added character encounters around the theme park, and most recently recreated Disneyland Paris’ beloved Remy’s Ratatouille Dark ride adventure in France.

While fans who got to preview the broad thoroughly enjoyed it, some EPCOT fans are still not sure if it fits in the park. Some of them took to Twitter this week to ask Disney Imagineering icon Joe Rohde what he thought. guardians of the galaxy: Place of Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT.

Joe Rohde is best known for being the lead designer for Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Although retired, many Disney fans turn to his expert advice when a new attraction or experience opens not just at Animal Kingdom, but at any of the Disney parks.

User @Millionaire2K tweeted Rohde, asking:

@Joe_Rohde Please participate in the GotG in Epcot debate! What is your opinion ? Oh, and did you come up?

Rohde replied that he had not ridden, as he was enjoying life in California after his retirement. He asked fans to further clarify the debate before intervening:

I don’t know anything about a debate. Also (retired. Lives in California.) what’s the big deal?

User @BillZanetti explained some Disney fans’ concerns about the theme to Rohde and said fans trust his opinion because of his work on Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: Breakout, which replaced Tower of Terror at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Park and is very popular. He wrote:

I think people want to know your opinion on this because they know you had the Marvel creative portfolio at one point and steered Mission: Breakout through an extraordinarily quick process. The new offering at Epcot has had a lot more time to develop and the debate is “in shape”…

‘Avatar’ producer Jon Landau and Disney Imaginary Joe Rohde collaborated to create Pandora.

Rohde responded, stating that a balance had to be struck between the quality of the coaster and its fit not with EPCOT’s past, but with current IP initiatives:

So the question is not necessarily how well this expresses Epcot as it was, but rather how well does it fulfill the mandate of using IP in the context of Epcot. You have to analyze between “Is it well done? versus “Is it addressing a valid initiative?” Don’t sulk.

A fan (@gattebowfan15) who rode Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at Walt Disney World praised the coaster, saying that while it might not match Walt’s original vision for EPCOT, he thinks it will be a hit:

I can report that I was able to put on Guardians at the EPCOT Center over the weekend. I know this might not fit into the original educational theme of the park, but let’s give Walt Disney Imagineering some credit, it’s a really good attraction. I’m sure it will be very popular.

Rohde quoted this response, praising Tom Fitzgerald, an Imagineer who initiated and developed Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Return. He wrote that his own opinion of the ride shouldn’t matter since only those who rode it should be involved in the debate:

Tom Fitzgerald is a great Imagineer with a good flair for popular consumption. He initiated and developed this project. So I would believe the attraction is great, having not seen it in person. The debate should be limited to those who have it.

User @derekjcole said he thinks there’s a split in the Disney Parks fan community between people who took the tour and those who didn’t:

Looks like those who participated in it love it and those on Twitter who didn’t hate it. Who should we believe?

Rohde gave a final take on the subject by quoting this Tweet, stating that the most essential part of any Disney Parks attraction is making Guests happy. He wrote:

Yes. The ultimate ultimate goal is to bring happiness. Are people happy?

Time will tell what Joe Rohde will think when he gets the chance to visit EPCOT and ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

Although I’m not a huge fan of indie sci-fi HorizonI pretty like beyond the horizonwhich pays homage to classic sci-fi horror like aliens and Predator. Same Horizonsthe third film in the franchise, is a very good time.

A fourth film is in the cards, teased Liam O’Donnell, screenwriter of the first film and director of the two sequels. The filmmaker took to social media last year to reveal he was stepping behind the camera to Radial horizon linewhich he says will be a “father/daughter reunion”.

In beyond the horizonFrank Grillo starred as a tough detective who embarks on a relentless pursuit to free his son from a nightmarish alien warship.

In last year’s third episode, “When a virus threatens to turn the now Earth-friendly alien hybrids into humans, Captain Rose Corley must lead an elite team of mercenaries on a mission to the alien world in order to save what remains of humanity.”

In the first plot details shared with Bloody Disgusting, Radial focuses on the main character of the franchise Rose Corley (Lindsey Morgan). When she and her crew embark on a daring mission to rescue her father, Mark, from a secret prison, they come face to face with the ultimate power of the universe: an ancient alien race known only as The Radial.

Media screen has acquired international sales rights to the sci-fi actor and will see its Foresight Unlimited division, led by Mark Damon, bring the project to buyers at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

The latest film is currently being cast, with key actors set to return. Production is expected to start this year.

Deadline reported the news for the first time.

Spider-Man: No Coming Home Director Jon Watts has now swung his role to helm the upcoming Fantastic Four film for Marvel Studios.

Axelle / Film Magic

Watts’ departure left a huge hole for the studio to fill, as they now need a director who could helm what could be the Fantastic Four’s first blockbuster movie. Let the speculation begin, because now we’ll run through the list of 10 directors set to helm the MCU’s Fantastic Four movie.

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR DOCTOR STRANGE 2 AHEAD!!!

ten.

Gareth Edwards

Although he has decided to focus on smaller scale productions, Edwards still has experience directing hit blockbusters such as Godzilla (2014) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Thanks to him, audiences have seen some of their favorite movie franchises reborn in a whole new way, and he could bring that kind of much-needed change to the MCU with the Fantastic Four.

9.

Justin Lin

Lin is famous for reinventing the Fast and Furious movies like action-packed heist movies since Fast Five. And now that Lin no longer leads the next Fast movie, he seems free to get behind the wheel in the MCU. For those who didn’t like those movies, he also helmed the underrated sci-fi adventure, Star Trek Beyondwhich shows he’s qualified to create the kind of cosmic blockbuster adventure the Fantastic Four could have.

8.

Colin Trevorrow

Pablo Cuadra / FilmMagic

Trevorrow gave new life to the jurassic park franchise with its mega-blockbuster hit, jurassic world. He also wrote the original screenplay for the ninth episode of Star Wars, Duel of Fates, which many have hailed as a superior story to The Rise of Skywalker. Given his frequent work with Disney and the fact that he has completed the making of the third jurassic world movie, the Mouse House might consider having him direct this highly anticipated Marvel movie.

7.

Bryce Dallas Howard

While her father, Ron, would no doubt be a great candidate to direct this film, Bryce has proven herself to be an accomplished director with her work creating episodes for The Mandalorian and Boba Fett’s Book. Not only does she have experience directing action-packed sci-fi movies, but the way she portrayed the heartfelt bond between Din Djarin and Grogu in The Mandalorian shows that she can still portray the family love at the heart of the Fantastic Four.

6.

Rian Johnson

Although he made enemies among countless star wars fans for his directorial work The Last Jedi, the film has consistently garnered critical acclaim and has been praised for taking the iconic sci-fi saga in a bold new direction. But no matter what you thought of that film, Johnson proved himself to be an excellent filmmaker with the hit time-traveling thriller, looperand the deconstructive thriller, Knives out.

5.

Jean Krasinski

Media Access Awards presented by / Getty Images for Easterseals

Fans finally saw Krasinski step into the superhero genre as Mr. Fantastic. But given his history as a director, particularly his success at the helm of the Quiet place movies, he could become the first person to helm an MCU film as an actor and director. He’s also had experience as an action star in projects like Amazon’s. Jack Ryan and 13 hours, which could help lead the kind of exhilarating, eye-catching adventure that Marvel Studios is known for creating. And with his excellent comedic skills honed playing Jim Halpert, he could bring the perfect blend of comedy, drama, and action essential to making an MCU movie.

4.

Deborah Chow

Chow has extensive experience directing episodes of hit shows like Mister Robot, Fear the living dead, You better call Sauland The Mandalorian. She also worked with Marvel in the creation of episodes of Jessica Jones and The iron fist. But more recently, Chow directed the entire upcoming Disney Plus series, Obi Wan Kenobi, which already seems to be a huge success. It’s high time she had her own hit movie!

3.

Brad Bird

Bird was a fan-favorite choice as a new director, and it’s understandable why he was such a popular choice. He brought a new twist to the superhero genre with his acclaimed film, The Incredibles, which was pretty much Pixar’s version of the Fantastic Four. He also directed the cult sci-fi classic, The iron giantand successfully transitioned into live action by performing Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. With such a range and expertise as an auteur, Bird could help create one of the most unique and well-directed movies in the MCU.

2.

Sam Raimi

Raimi reinvigorated the superhero genre with his legendary work with Spider-Man, and now that the director is back in the game with Multiverse of Madness, he might be keen to tackle Marvel’s First Family next. Raimi’s latest film has already been hailed as a standout film in the MCU thanks to its distinctive directing style, which might just be what the Fantastic Four needs to become a smash hit. And with the director’s penchant for portraying horror in his movies, Raimi could also bring a terrifying new twist to the Fantastic Four, just like he did with Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.

1.

The Russo Brothers

The Russians have declared that they would return as directors in the MCU provided it was for a Fantastic Four movie. The duo revitalized Captain America and the rest of the Avengers with their leadership work The Winter Soldier, Civil war, Infinity Warand End of Game. So, combined with their passion for the Fantastic Four, their vast success and experience in filmmaking make them the most qualified people to helm a film about this iconic superhero team.

Do you agree with this list? What other directors do you think could direct the Fantastic Four? Please let me know in the comments section below.

Celtic hold a six-point lead going into the final three matches of the Scottish Premiership season.

Ange Postecoglou’s side are unbeaten in 29 league games (W24 D5), so it’s a question of when, not if…

The champagne is already on ice after a 1-1 draw in the last Old Firm derby and the party could start this weekend.

Let’s take a look at what’s at stake in the latest round of top-flight fixtures, with St Johnstone and Dundee struggling down low.

Celtic with a hand on the trophy

Celtic also enjoy a far superior goal difference, a whopping 19 more than closest challengers Rangers.

Victory over Hearts on Saturday lunchtime would extend their lead to nine points, leaving the Ibrox side in need of a miraculous set of results.

Rangers host Dundee United on Sunday and need to match what their Glasgow rivals are doing for the contest to officially continue.

Hearts have enjoyed a fantastic return to the Premiership and are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions, with a Scottish Cup final to look forward to. They beat Celtic at Edinburgh on the first day of the league campaign and gave them a second-half scare at Tynecastle in January when Liam Boyce hit the post with a penalty in a 2-1 defeat.

However, it’s generally a different story across the M8, with Celtic winning 19 of their last 20 home league games against Hearts.

Advantage United in pursuit of Conference League

Dundee United lead the way in a tight three-way battle for two Europa Conference League qualifying spots.

If Tam Court’s men can pull off a surprise win at Ibrox and Ross County beat Motherwell to Dingwall then the folks at Tannadice can start making sure everyone has an up to date passport.

United are the only team other than Celtic to get the better of Rangers this season, but have been unsuccessful at Ibrox in the top flight since 2011.

If County can manage a third league win in a row against Motherwell for the first time, they could very well close the three-point gap on United, with those two meeting in the Highlands on the final day.

And County will relish their scoring chances on Saturday as the Steelmen are without a clean sheet in their last 13 league games.

If Motherwell can add to their solitary Premiership victory in 2022 and United lose, then a point will cover the trio.

Grim outlook for the bottom two

Lower club Dundee are running out of must-see games. Speaking after last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Pittodrie, manager Mark McGhee felt that if the Dark Blues took maximum points from their last three matches they would move St Johnstone into a play-off position .

What is the probability that Dundee won only five games all season and that they all arrived before McGhee in mid-February?

Eleventh is the best Dundee can do and a direct return to the Championship will be confirmed if they lose at St Mirren and Perth Saints win at Livingston.

Dundee claimed victory on their last trip to Paisley in October, earning them four wins in their last six Premiership visits, but the Buddies still need something to make sure they are absolutely in safety and will be backed after snapping a four-game losing streak at McDiarmid. Park last time.

It was a match in which many pundits predicted St Johnstone would win, but Callum Davidson’s side were abject in a 1-0 loss.

Livi have beaten Aberdeen and Hibs since the split but have lost their last three home meetings with the Saints in all competitions.

St Johnstone just don’t score enough – 22 goals in 35 games, despite somehow finishing eighth in 2011 with just 23.

If Davidson’s side can somehow muster maximum points from their last three outings, there’s an outside chance to falter at St Mirren or Aberdeen, but it all comes crashing down if those two follow through on the wins from last weekend Saturday.

Underachievers meet at Easter Road

Aberdeen visit Hibernian, with both sets of supporters eager to see this season’s return.

Hibs are the only side in the division yet to reach double goals in 2022. The managerless hosts have won two of their last 15 Scottish Premiership matches (D6 L7), scoring just eight times.

Aberdeen equals that wretched WDL record over the same period, but both of their wins have come in the last five games, while it’s two in 10 for Hibs.

The Dons were certainly used to having the measure of the Hibs in Edinburgh, losing just three times in 23 visits until 2019-20, but the hosts have won three of the last four between those two at Easter Road.

A point would realistically keep Aberdeen safe given the 20-goal advantage they have over St Johnstone, who they will next meet in Perth.
