Don't worry, Florence Pugh won't be done with Marvel movies after Thunderbolts

What’s next for Florence Pugh’s character in the Marvel movies? Whatever happens in Thunderbolts, it looks like it won’t see Yelena Belova’s arc come to an end.

The Hollywood Reporter has hinted at the existence of another, currently unnamed Marvel project set to feature Florence Pugh, revealing that the actor is due to receive eight-figure sums for her appearances in Thunderbolts and another movie.

"Florence Pugh, already an Oscar nominee when she appeared in Black Widow as Yelena Belova, will receive eight figures for her next two Marvel films, including leading the ensemble cast of the villain-centric Thunderbolts."

Florence Pugh is one of the best-known Marvel movie stars of recent years, having risen to prominence in popular films such as Midsommar and Greta Gerwig’s Little Women. She has also been at the center of fierce online chatter surrounding this year’s Don’t Worry Darling, also starring Harry Styles and Chris Pine.

Pugh first appeared in the MCU in 2021’s Black Widow, and has been confirmed to star in 2024’s Thunderbolts, an upcoming superhero flick featuring a number of Marvel anti-heroes (in the vein of DC's The Suicide Squad).

However, there’s been no official announcement regarding Pugh’s involvement in another MCU project down the line as yet. 

What could Yelena Belova’s next Marvel movie be?

Given the nature of the MCU, it’s very possible that Pugh could pop up in a cameo in any of the Marvel movies to come – this is a franchise known for sneaking in new characters after the credits have rolled, after all. 

It seems unlikely she’ll appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever or The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, though; we expect she’ll be in another MCU project after Thunderbolts, possibly a planned sequel, the Blade movie coming later in 2024, or one of the few confirmed movies for ‘Phase 6’, such as Fantastic Four or Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, both of which are scheduled to land in 2025. We wouldn't bank on it being Eternals 2, mind, with its likely appearance of… Harry Styles.

Certainly you'd expect that for an eight-figure sum, she'll be a pretty major figure in whatever the film is. And we could not be happier about that – Pugh is one of the best acting talents working today, and is capable of carrying an entire film single-handedly. Knowing she's in any Marvel immediately knocks it further up the excitement charts, so we hope Kevin Feige just keeps throwing money at her.

We’ll no doubt have a better sense of the mysterious movie in question once Thunderbolts arrives in theaters, and we may get an official announcement regarding Florence Pugh’s future filmography before then. In the meantime, have you finished watching She-Hulk yet?

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
