Hancock 2: What the Will Smith Sequel Would Be About



Hancock 2: What the Will Smith Sequel Would Be About

Interest in a Hancock sequel lingers 12 years after the original. Here’s what might happen if Hancock 2 makes it to the big screen.

The sequel to 2008’s Hancock has yet to happen, but if it does, director Peter Berg knows what the movie will be about. Fans of the original remember the exploits of Hancock (Will Smith), the superhero with drinking, attitude, and image problems. In the movie, Hancock rebrands himself with some help from a well-meaning publicist, Ray (Jason Bateman).

Ray is determined to make the world a better place and sees giving Hancock a makeover as a good place to start. Hancock’s relationship with Ray and his son Aaron and wife Mary (Charlize Theron) leads to surprising revelations about Hancock’s past.

Hancock was a box office hit, raking in $629.4 million worldwide — but the movie didn’t fare as well critically. Many thought Hancock’s premise was fresh, but the execution was poor. Instead of exploring more deeply how the pressures of fame could wear down an immortal god, the story shifts into a lopsided convoluted love story, throwing in an unimpressive last-minute nemesis.

The movie’s ending set the stage for the major characters to return, and a sequel seemed inevitable. While the Hancock sequel appeared to be confirmed, with Berg announcing the original cast would return for another film. Reportedly, in late 2009, the project was put on hold so Smith could spend time with his family.

The only thing standing in the way of a second Hancock movie appeared to be scheduling conflicts because Berg had the plot outlined in 2009. He told MTV News that the sequel would explore the backstories of Smith’s and Theron’s immortal gods and how they both wound up living in Los Angeles:

All of the key players have been busy for the past eight years. Smith has appeared in Bad Boys for Life (a fourth movie is in the works) and in the live-action version of Aladdin. Berg is going to direct Netflix’s Painkiller, an eight-episode limited series about the origin of the opioid epidemic.

Theron starred in another story about immortal gods, The Old Guard, which premiered on Netflix this month, and the movie’s ending begs for another installment; however,, the Theron is still on board with doing a Hancock sequel. Theron told Comicbook in June 2020:

“You know, for a while we [talked about a sequel], I think closer to when the movie came out, but not in recent years, no. We’ll be super heroes with our walkers, you know. And I’ll still go! I’ll still make that movie, I would do it in a heartbeat.”

Berg promised the tone would combine broad comedy with emotional drama. Although Charlize’s and Smith’s characters were supposed to be the last two of their kind, Berg teased the possibility of another demigod possibly entering the mix; in 2012, Bergo told SyFy Wire he still believed the concept had “a lot of potential” and said there had been a small push forward on the project — a phone call between producer Akiva Goldsman and Will Smith.

Berg didn’t divulge any new plot points, however. It took the powers that be 12 years to get the first Hancock to come to fruition, and it looks as if a possible sequel will shatter that record.

Why Jada Pinkett Smith Initially Waited To Address Affair Accusations With Will Smith On Red Table Talk



Hancock 2: What the Will Smith Sequel Would Be About

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have always been candid about their marriage, and this only continued when the two have opened up about Pinkett Smith’s affair with singer August Alsina. In an emotional installment of Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk, the two aimed to set the record straight about the situation. Now, Pinkett Smith has revealed that she initially wanted to hold off on releasing that episode and explained her reasoning for wanting to do so.

In an Instagram post, Jada Pinkett Smith stated that she originally planned to hold the episode out of respect to the other issues society is currently facing. However, she eventually opted to release the episode because she was unable to find an appropriate moment to do it:

I brought myself to the table last week but decided to hold the episode out of respect for the far more important situations that have been happening around us. I’ve been trying to wait for the appropriate moment to drop it but considering the state of the world … I don’t think that will be happening anytime soon. Here’s to the journey.

It’s honestly easy to understand Jada Pinkett Smith’s thinking on the situation. When August Alsina initially went public with the reveal of his relationship with her, it flooded the news. And with so many other topics — like the ongoing global health crisis – affecting the world, the actress didn’t want to draw the public’s attention away from where she believed it needed to be. But as she said, given the fact that not much has changed at the moment, it would’ve been difficult to find a “good” opportunity to release the episode.

And as Pinkett Smith predicted, the episode of Red Table Talk did indeed drum up its fair share of attention. However, the Hollywood power couple has emphasized that they had good reasons for filming the episode. Will Smith has made it clear that he wanted to clear up any misconceptions about August Alsina’s claims, sentiments that were also echoed by his wife.

The episode has had a massive effect on the internet since its release, with many using the term “entanglement,” which Pinkett Smith coined to describe her situation with August Alsina. While Alsina actually doesn’t have a problem with people using the term, Will Smith appears to be somewhat annoyed with fans using it over social media.

But all in all, Jada Pinkett and Will Smith seem to be moving on from the situation and continuing to work on their relationship. Pinkett Smith even views the affair as more of a learning experience as opposed to a transgression. Whether or not they choose the right time to discuss the affair is debatable, but one thing that can be said is that they used the time to speak openly and honestly about a delicate (and personal) situation.

An Unpopular Opinion on Jada Pinkett and Will Smith’s “Entanglement”



An Unpopular Opinion on Jada Pinkett and Will Smith's "Entanglement"

There are few people on Earth who would turn down the promise of unconditional love, but at what cost? The rare partnerships that seem unbreakable have committed to working though transgressions and choosing each other, like Jada Pinkett and Will Smith. In a recent Red Table Talk, the couple addressed Jada’s controversial “entanglement” with singer August Alsina, which received some very strong criticisms from fans. As someone who looked up to the Smiths’ 25-year marriage, it inspired me to delve deeper into how modern love accommodates the complexities of forever.

Many entanglement critics are, like myself, millennials or younger who have never been in a relationship for more than three years. Most of us are looking for love in a digital age when immediacy is everything, options are endless, and our attention spans are minimal. Our opinions about commitment are much more developed than our experiences are. If you think about a relationship like you think about a person, did you even know yourself at 20 years old? Much less know another person? We’re constantly evolving as individuals, and we expect our family and friends to understand and support that, so why would we expect different from our partner? I spoke to Debra Golburn, a doctor of counseling psychology with a specialism in personal relationships, about the challenges that come with having someone in your corner.

“To become one means that you have similar ideals, similar goals for your future, but you are still two separate individuals who are going to react and respond to experiences quite differently, based on your level of development.”

“Couples need a concrete understanding of what they’re getting into from day one,” Dr. Golburn explained. “What you’re going to want when you’re 25 is going to be very different to what you’re going to want at 30, 35, 40, and so on. Your life is not going to be totally dependent and enmeshed with this other person. What is crucial to a relationship, to a marriage, is understanding that one needs to maintain their identity. To become one means that you have similar ideals, similar goals for your future, but you are still two separate individuals who are going to react and respond to experiences quite differently, based on your level of development.”

Dr. Golburn explained that although we should certainly be looking for someone who, at their core, is an honest, genuine person with integrity, it is natural for desires to change with time and experience. “This whole thing about unconditional love, and growing with each other, is very, very difficult to come by,” she said. It’s difficult to accept that “relationships are fluid. And the core thing is about how well you communicate and how well the next person understands what you’re trying to say.”

Jada and Will’s communication was healthy, according to Dr. Golburn, because “they had an understanding from day one that they were not going to divorce. You have to have those shared, core values that will hold you together no matter what happens. I like the idea that they gave each other a chance to explore themselves, a chance to understand their own development. Jada was carrying lots of baggage from childhood that she hadn’t really dealt with. As you go through life, certain experiences will trigger something in you that you hadn’t even realized in yourself. If you want a relationship that is going to be long-lasting, then you’ll have to think about all of what that entails. It is going to mean commitment, but committing to what? You have to be able to answer those kinds of questions.”

“Relationships are tough when you, yourself, are changing. It’s hard enough for you to figure out what is going on with yourself, let alone explain it to somebody else.”

For digital natives trying to build a long-lasting relationship, Dr. Golburn advises that “if you feel that you are not mature enough, and as soon as something goes wrong, you’re gone, then that’s all you’re ever going to get. If the relationship is worth it, then you have to be willing to really give it enough time to work things through. Relationships are tough when you, yourself, are changing. It’s hard enough for you to figure out what is going on with yourself, let alone explain it to somebody else.”

Dr. Golburn explained that Jada and Will’s Red Table Talk discussion was an example of a healthy, flexible partnership. They both seem to have an understanding of each other and their individual needs for personal growth, which is facilitated by honest, respectful communication. While naysayers will have strong opinions about how a marriage – or any relationship – should look, it’s hard to relate if you’ve never been with someone for 25 years. What I do find a bit problematic is the maturity difference between a 48-year-old Jada and a 27-year-old August – as I think that’s an unfair power dynamic – but would I still have that inclination if the genders were reversed? What I do understand is that if we are talking about unconditional love, then absolute respect, honesty, and open communication is the best you’re going to get.

Cardi B Defends A 9 yr old Bully Victim



Cardi B has protected a nine-year-old kid, Quaden Bayles, after online trolls blamed him for furtively being a grown-up.

A week ago Bayles’ mom, Yarraka, shared a video on Facebook of her child saying he needed to “murder himself” in an offer to bring issues to light of the results of harassing.

In the now-erased video, Bayles, who has a sort of dwarfism called achondroplasia, could be found in surges of tears while saying “I’m going to murder myself” and “I need to bite the dust”.

After the post was seen more than 25m occasions, the little fellow in this way gotten an overflowing of help from the general population and big names, including entertainers Hugh Jackman and Mark Hamill, and comic Brad Williams.

Be that as it may, the tormenting has now broadened on the web, with trolls spreading a fear inspired notion that the nine-year-old kid is really a 18-year-old entertainer.

On Sunday, Cardi B talked sincerely about the allegations on her Instagram Stories, revealing to her 59.3m supporters that she didn’t accept the bits of gossip individuals were spreading via web-based networking media.

“Everybody continues saying he’s lying regarding his age,” she said.

‘I truly don’t believe he’s lying about his age. Because there’s recordings of him flossing cash and acting all hoodlum, and acting all cool and everything, it doesn’t imply that children don’t single out him
