Marvel Reveals THANOS Gets a Happy Ending, After All

Warning: SPOILERS for Old Man Quill #10

The supervillain Thanos may be responsible for some of the darkest, cruelest moments in Marvel Comics history. So it only makes sense that in the darkest possible version of the future… Thanos lives the happy, peaceful life he always should have.

It’s an unexpected answer to a “What If?” few Marvel fans ever actually asked. Thankfully, most comic fans will be familiar with the dark future of Old Man Logan, taking place in a version of Marvel’s Universe where the villains killed the Avengers, Wolverine killed the X-Men, and supervillains rose up to rule over the Wasteland that America was soon reduced to. And as Old Man Quill #10 has now confirmed, it’s also the version of Marvel’s future which gives Thanos his happy ending, in the best cameo imaginable.

RELATED: How Thanos Can Still Return in The MCU’s Future

In the original version of his origin story, Thanos was descended from Marvel’s Eternals living on Saturn’s moon, Titan, right here in our very own solar system. Which means Old Man Quill doesn’t need to go far to pay homage to the past while revealing the future. For Thanos, at least.

Fans won’t need to have read Old Man Quill to this point to appreciate the Thanos cameo (but the series is recommended for any fans of Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy). To make a long story short, Star-Lord has been drifting ever since the villainous Universal Church of Truth destroyed his home planet of Spartax. Now that he’s traveled to Earth in search of the Ultimate Nullifier–one of the most powerful weapons in Marvel’s universe–the Church and their master, Galactus, are rushing to Earth to kill Quill before he can do the same to them.

Galactus and his Church armada has only been alluded to as a coming threat, but in Old Man Quill #10 their proximity is finally confirmed. And to show the massive armada arriving in Earth’s solar system, the storytellers do so from the perspective of Thanos. Quietly gardening on his home moon, observing the world-devouring fleet with a simple “Huh.” Apparently having put such matters of cosmic conquest so thoroughly to bed, Thanos is barely even curious about Earth’s imminent destruction.

Every Marvel fan can appreciate the sight of Thanos on the now garden moon of Saturn, noting “The Earth is really screwed!” before simply returning to his work as the armada fades into the distance. Back on Earth, the Wasteland is finding its new Thor, and heroes fight to save what’s left of the future. But on Titan, the good old ‘Farmer Thanos’ lives the life of peace and pacifism he pictured in his earliest days as a young Eternal. A happy ending for Thanos, whether or not he deserves it. Now, will Old Man Quill be as lucky? Fans will need to read the final two issues to find out!

  • OUT OF TIME! PETER QUILL has failed – the Ultimate Nullifier is no longer in the Baxter Building, and without it, there’s no hope of stopping GALACTUS. If only he could go back in time and steal it from REED RICHARDS… Why can’t he? Because if Quill goes into the timestream, all of space-time is at risk! But when has a longshot stopped STAR-LORD?

The Rock Delights 100-Year-Old Woman with Surprise Happy Birthday Wish

Movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has proven himself even more of a beacon of light and joy, surprising a fan with a brief serenade in honor of her 100th birthday. Johnson was of course a second-generation professional wrestler, following in the footsteps of his father Rocky Johnson. Though initially pursuing a career in professional football, he ultimately debuted in the WWE (formerly WWF) in 1996. He worked within the company for eight years, becoming one of their most prolific and successful performers. He made the jump to acting in 2001, with an appearance in The Mummy Returns, before taking the lead role in the franchise’s spinoff The Scorpion King. Despite his Hollywood success, he still makes the occasional WWE appearance – including a highly-anticipated return for the premiere of Smackdown scheduled for later this week.

With his projects earning over $10 billion worldwide, Johnson is one of the highest-grossing movie stars of all time. Equally, he’s one of the hardest-working. He was last seen on the big-screen alongside Jason Statham, Idris Elba, and Vanessa Kirby in Hobbs & Shaw – the first direct spinoff from the Fast & Furious franchise. He’ll next be enjoyed in Jumanji: The Next Level, which will serve as the follow-up to the surprise 2017 hit, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He also recently finished filming on Disney’s Jungle Cruise. On top of all this, he also stars in and executive produces HBO’s Ballers, which will soon wrap up its fifth and final season.

Regardless, Johnson never seems to be too busy for his fans, often interacting and engaging with them in real life and on social media. Posting on his personal Twitter account, Johnson shared the latest example of such acts. Sharing a post from an individual named Jamie Klingler, the actor and producer revealed that he’d honored a request to sing happy birthday to Klingler’s grandmother. Turning 100-years-old and clearly a fan, “Grandmom Grover” was floored by the serenade. Johnson declared that he loved seeing it, calling it the best part of fame, before wishing her happy birthday once again. A video of the moment was also captured and shared with the post, which can be seen in the space below:

Johnson has a number of other projects in the pipeline. He’s set to star in Netflix’s Red Notice. The film will also star Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984) and Ryan Reynolds – who enjoyed a cameo appearance as a CIA Agent (and Luke Hobbs fanatic) named Locke in Hobbs & Shaw. Johnson is also expected to start work late next year on the long-awaited comic book adaptation Black AdamThe DC character has long been a nemesis of Shazam! As such, the solo film is expected to be an origin story and ultimately set up a clash between the two in Shazam 3.

In the U.K., people tend to receive a card from The Queen. The fact that people in the U.S. receive a video call from Johnson will no doubt be the source of much jealousy and a desire to receive similar. It almost certainly won’t be the last such generous act Johnson will engage in over the years to come. Regardless, it’ll certainly rank as one of the sweetest. It helps to make it all the more apparent why Johnson is consistently considered the top leading man in all of Hollywood and why, just this year, he was given MTV’s Generation Award. As such, he’ll no doubt win even more fans with this display, and deepen the love of those he already has.

DC Confirms WATCHMEN Heroes Get Their Happy Ending | Screen Rant

Warning: SPOILERS for DC’s Doomsday Clock #11

Fans of the original Watchmen can finally rest easy, now that Doomsday Clock has answered one of hardest to resist questions about the story’s ending. Because honestly, who hasn’t always wondered if things worked out between Nite Owl and Silk Spectre?

The idea of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s canonical sequel to the original graphic novel, bringing Dr. Manhattan into DC’s Universe will always be a controversial decision (and anyone can guess how Alan Moore feels about Watchmen these days). But for those who don’t hold the original too precious, or are simply curious to know how DC has continued–and ended–the Watchmen story, it will come as a pleasant surprise to learn that the book’s two lovers really did get their happy ending. Well, as happy as anyone else’s.

RELATED: Watchmen’s Patrick Wilson Compares The Movie To Aquaman

Even as unresolved as the deomstic life of Laurie Jupiter and Dan Dreiberg remains, it’s possible fans will read through the latest Doomsday Clock #11, and skip by their final scene without even noticing. It’s understandable, since it comes in the midst of Adrian Veidt’s long-winded summary of his entire master plan. After Doomsday Clock #2 showed Dr. Manhattan foiling a bank robbery committed by Mime and Marionette, the blue hero’s focus on her unborn child suggested even Jon Osterman had limits. But as Veidt reveals in the newest issue, that wasn’t the significance of the baby at all…

Every fan will remember the image of Laurie and Dan silhouetted against the mushroom cloud of nuclear apocalypse, or stripped naked in Ozymandias’s Antarctic base. But fewer will remember them from their last appearance, visiting Laurie’s mother with hair dyed blonde and under the aliases ‘Sam and Sandra Hollis.’ Their matching hairstyles, names, and a perfectly-placed owl painting confirm that Nite Owl and Silk Spectre are the couple shown in the above panel. Effectively confirming the most optimistic reading of the ending of Watchmen–that the couple really did decide to settle down and start a family.

That family includes adopting the child of Marionette, and presumably living the life neither thought possible… for a few years. Along with the arrival of Dr. Manhattan in DC’s Universe, Doomsday Clock shows the future of Watchmen‘s version of Earth. With Veidt escaping his home universe just as nuclear apocalypse strikes, Dan and Laurie’s future was cut short along with every other person on Earth’s. In which case, fans will need to take solace in the fact that even Dr. Manhattan deemed the “incredible joy” they experienced worth protecting.

This version of a Watchmen post-credits scene will need to be taken as something completely different than HBO’s Watchmen TV series, which has crafted its own version of a troubled future. Since Silk Spectre will return in the Watchmen TV show, this will have to remain the canonical outcome in the comics. At least until the final issue of Doomsday Clock brings whatever conclusion Geoff Johns has in store. There’s no telling when the final issue will actually end up on store shelves, considering how many delays Doomsday Clock has dealt with thus far. But until then, readers curious to pick up this “penultimate” issue for themselves can read the full credits and synopsis below:

  • DOOMSDAY CLOCK #11 (2019)
  • Written by: Geoff Johns
  • Art by: Gary Frank, Brad Anderson
  • Cover by: Gary Frank, Brad Anderson
  • The critically acclaimed series by the renowned team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank marches toward its conclusion. In this penultimate issue, the truth behind “Rebirth” is revealed as Batman searches for the one person he believes can help him save the world…Rorschach!

Doomsday Clock #11 is available now at your local comic book shop, or direct from DC Comics. Doomsday Clock #12 is still without release date.

Stormi Sings Happy Birthday to Kylie Jenner in 2019’s Cutest Moment

There are a lot of adorable videos on the internet – for instance, otters holding hands – but Stormi Webster singing to her mom, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner, “Happy Birthday” on a yacht in Italy might be 2019’s cutest moment yet. That’s unless she does a duet with North West later.

Kylie is currently celebrating her 22nd birthday like a billionaire – in a $250 million yacht somewhere off the Amalfi Coast. First, she came home to a mansion full of roses, thanks to her boyfriend and the father of Stormi, Travis Scott. The rapper also gave her a huge diamond chain with the Kylie Cosmetics logo on it for her birthday. Meanwhile, everyone in the Kardashian family wished Kylie a “Happy Birthday” with sweet and emotional posts on Instagram, including her dad, Caitlyn. Only, Caitlyn accidentally used a photo of Kylie’s sister Kendall, before quickly deleting it and reposting some photos with Kylie in them. Now, the reality TV star’s 1-year-old daughter has wished her mom a “Happy Birthday” in the cutest way possible.

In a video she posted to Instagram, Kylie is seen holding Stormi in her arms as they sing “Happy Birthday” together. Kylie begins the song, letting little Stormi take it away. A tiny “to you” is barely audible coming from Stormi’s mouth. When Kylie says, “Happy Birthday dear…” that’s when Stormi belts out, “Mommy!” – and the internet’s collective heart melted into a puddle. Stormi then impresses everyone by finishing the whole song with her mom. To make this clip even cuter, Stormi is nestled in a bunch of white feathers from her mom’s outfit and is wearing her own adorable white dress to match, complete with a bow in her hair. Check out the video below:

My babyyyy😍😍😍💗💗💗

A post shared by Kylie 🤍 (@kyliejenner) on

Kylie shared some other shots from her lavish vacation, including a photo of her standing in between two giant “2”s made out of flowers, one of her posing in dramatic sunglasses on her yacht, and, of course, one of her selling makeup while she sunbathes. This trip looks like a nice break for Kylie after a rough year. She recently had a falling out with her longtime best friend Jordyn Woods, after Woods hooked up with Tristan Thompson, Khloé’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter, True. While there were rumors the two had rekindled their friendship, they haven’t been seen together in a while and her former friend didn’t wish her a “Happy Birthday” on social media.

Now that this Stormi video exists, it’s hard to imagine anything cuter ever happening on the internet again. Stormi actually achieved what her Aunt Kim attempted to do with that Paper magazine cover a few years ago and broke the internet. Now, fans will just have to keep watching Kylie’s Instagram story to find out if it can be topped.

Caitlyn Jenner Wishes Kylie Happy Birthday with Kendall’s Photo

Caitlyn Jenner accidentally wished her daughter Kylie a happy birthday using her other daughter Kendall’s childhood photo. Fortunately, the reality TV star quickly realized her mistake.

While supermodel Kendall, who is 5’10, might not look a lot like her sister Kylie, who’s 5’6, now, they were practically twins when they were younger. Longtime fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians would have a hard time telling the two apart as they ran around the family’s mansion together as tweens. Apparently, even their own parent has a hard time telling them apart. To celebrate Kylie’s recent 22nd birthday, Caitlyn wanted to share a sweet picture of the two of them together from years ago. While she did find a sweet photo, it wasn’t who she thought it was.

In a now-deleted Instagram (via: Baller Alert), Caitlyn shared a photo of her and Kendall as a child, along with a sweet message to Kylie for her 22nd birthday. She wrote, “Life was so simple back then, but life is so good today. Happy Birthday to my little baby @kyliejenner.” Not too long after the birthday post was published, Caitlyn took it down and replaced it with a new photo series of her and both of her daughters when they were younger – a good way to play it safe this time. The caption read simply, “Happy Birthday @kyliejenner.” Followers in the comments made jokes about the sudden photo switch, writing, “ahh pics with them both, better not to risk it,” and “glad you got the right daughter this time, sis.”

#CaitlynJenner wishes #KylieJenner a Happy Birthday

A post shared by Baller Alert (@balleralert) on

Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians know that Kendall and Caitlyn have always been very close, because they both love sports and the outdoors. Caitlyn bonds with her tomboy daughter by riding horses and ATVs together. Meanwhile, Kylie and her dad have grown closer since Caitlyn’s transition, bonding over makeup and clothes. In Caitlyn’s defense, both of his daughters did look a lot alike when they were younger, so it’s an easy mistake for a 69-year-old to make. Next time, maybe she’ll run it past someone else before posting. Kylie shouldn’t be too bothered by the mistake, though, since she’s currently living her best yacht life while celebrating her birthday in Italy.

Compared to what Kylie’s boyfriend, Travis Scott, did for her birthday this year – filling her house with roses and buying her a giant Kylie Cosmetics-themed diamond chain – Caitlyn really dropped the ball. But that’s OK; she’s got a whole year and plenty more birthdays to make it up to her.

Far From Home Turned Happy Hogan Into A Better Uncle Ben Than Tony Stark

Spider-Man: Far From Home turned Happy Hogan into a better Uncle Ben-figure than Tony Stark was for Peter Parker. Since the wall-crawler joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many of his classic comic book tropes (which were hallmarks of Sam Raimi and Marc Webb’s Spider-Man movies) were abandoned in order to create a Spider-Man who was very specific to the MCU. Uncle Ben was left on the wayside; he certainly existed and died in the past but his influence on Peter’s life as Spider-Man has been minimal. Instead, Peter has modeled himself after his mentor Tony Stark, who died to save the world in Avengers: Endgame.

Meanwhile, Happy Hogan has been part of the MCU since the very beginning; he appeared in Iron Man as Tony’s chauffeur and bodyguard, but his duties largely became unnecessary when Tony turned himself into a world-famous superhero who wears a technologically advanced suit of armor. Since Jon Favreau also directed the first two Iron Man movies, it was understandable why he kept Happy as a comic relief background character; while James Rhodes got to become War Machine and join Tony as an Avenger, Happy stayed behind with Pepper Potts as the Head of Security for Stark Industries.

RELATED: Every Iron Man Tribute Hidden In Spider-Man: Far From Home

However, Happy’s depth of character really began to shine in Spider-Man: Homecoming when Tony gave him a crucial assignment: “Watch over the kid”, i.e. be Peter Parker’s liaison to Tony Stark. Happy openly resented being a babysitter to a 15-year-old but he did what he was told to do and escorted the kid to Germany during Captain America: Civil War. in Homecoming, Happy took the job of moving the Avengers’ equipment out of Avengers Tower into the new Compound upstate more seriously than the constant stream of text updates Peter would barrage him with. But after Spider-Man stopped the Vulture from stealing the Avengers’ technology – thereby saving Happy’s job – Hogan came to admire Peter as much as Tony did. This really set the stage for what Happy Hogan would transition into: he essentially became Peter’s new Uncle Ben in Spider-Man: Far From Home and it’s a role Happy is ideally suited for.

Many fans miss Uncle Ben’s presence in Spider-Man’s life since he was the one who instilled the credo “With great power comes great responsibility” into Peter – which is a crucial building block missing from the MCU’s Spidey. Instead, Tony Stark slid into the Uncle Ben role; wanting to “impress Mr. Stark” in Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming was Peter’s primary motivation. In Far From Home, fear of not being able to live up to Tony’s legacy as “the next Iron Man” was partly why Peter insisted on remaining on vacation with his friends in Europe. But while Spider-Man benefits from Tony’s technology, Stark himself was lacking as a mentor on a personal level. Despite his genuine affection for Peter, the only real life wisdom Tony ever shared with the kid was when he scolded him, “If you’re nothing without the [Spider-Man] suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” After all, it was really Tony who was drawing inspiration from Peter because of his core of goodness and his “Bruce Springsteen working man’s vibe I kinda dig”.

But when Peter was at his most desperate in Far From Home, it was Happy he called for help and that felt right. Happy not only came to the rescue with Stark’s plane and tech, but he also took the time to emotionally connect to Peter by shedding light on what “a mess” Tony really was and yet picking Peter to be his protege and successor was the one thing Tony didn’t second-guess. This was the kick in the pants Peter needed to prevail and the crucial point is Happy encouraged Peter to be Spider-Man, not Iron Man. Happy then went the extra mile by personally helping Peter’s friends survive Mysterio’s evil plan. On an even more personal note, Happy is also in love with Aunt May, an affection she may not entirely reciprocate, but May and Happy is an exciting potential relationship for two supporting characters who both lost someone important to them and could benefit from personal happiness in their lives.

Ultimately, by dying, Tony Stark fulfilled the classic Uncle Ben role for Peter. But because the MCU continues to forge a new path for Spider-Man – especially now that his secret identity was made public in Spider-Man: Far From Home‘s end-credits scene – Happy Hogan is the Uncle Ben figure who will be there for Peter day-in-and-day-out.

Happy! Season 2 Review: SYFY’s Over-The-Top Series Starts Off Slow But Steady

The notion of continuing SYFY’s Happy! after what turned out to be a highly stylized, hyper-violent, and always over-the-top first season seems like a difficult task. After all, the story of Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) racing through the streets of New York City to find his kidnapped daughter Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo) from a deranged Santa, all while a corrupt children’s entertainer, Sonny Shine (Christopher Fitzgerald), made the world a creepier, less festive place, seemed, like the comic of the same name from Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson on which it was based, destined to be a one-and-done series. Instead, SYFY and series showrunner Brian Taylor have seen fit to get the gang back together for a spring-themed second season, one that, unfortunately, has to follow in the footsteps of its unhinged predecessor. 

The self-destructive nature of Happy! is a large part of its initial appeal — well, that and the talking animated horse voiced by Patton Oswalt. But really, naive imaginary creatures aside, Happy! season 1 got a lot of mileage out of, well, driving like it was headed off a cliff. That pervasive recklessness, the sense that the series — like its characters — were perpetually on the verge of going off the rails, was, in essence, not just the source of its puerile charm (if you want to call it that) but also the element that enticed viewers to keep watching. Happy! sold itself on being the Peak TV version of a car wreck in progress. Soon enough the whole thing would end up a smoldering pile of mostly resolved plot threads. 

Because of how the first season ended, though, the season 2 premiere, ‘The War on Easter,’ finds itself in a tricky situation of juggling the edgelord-y elements that made it work in the first place, with the responsibilities of longform storytelling. In other words, though Happy! happily walked its main character right up to the edge of oblivion in its first season, its been forced to walk Nick back more than a few steps as season 2 gets underway. 

There’s some humor in this, as Nick has mostly given up his vices — drinking, drugs, and killing lots of people — and has replaced them with relatively (for him, anyway) wholesome activities like spending time with his daughter, attending to basic bodily hygiene, driving a cab, and dealing with the fact that Hailey’s former imaginary friend has now latched onto him in a more permanent way. Of course, this being Happy!, things aren’t quite so cut and dry, with “dry” being the operative word here as Nick is hitting breath spray and cough syrup harder than the mafia types who were out to get him last season. 

Most of the premiere is spent getting caught up with the new Nick (mostly the same as the old Nick), and understanding that while his experiences from last season have put him on a different path (otherwise known as not-quite the straight and narrow), his daughter, former partner Meredith (Lili Mirojnick), and ex Amanda (Medina Senghore), aren’t equipped with the same coping mechanisms as he is. In other words, their behavior is more like that of a normal human being who has been through a traumatic experience. That being said, much of what ‘The War on Easter’ attempts to do in its first hour is strike a compelling balance between the aftermath of the first season’s storyline, and trying its darnedest to drum up some interest in a fittingly blasphemous Easter-themed storyline wherein Sonny Shine is selling “MEGA” (Make Easter Great Again) to the Vatican, while a crazed lunatic with a pink eye dressed in Easter Bunny bondage gear is blowing up nuns and abducting not-so-wholesome charity organizers for likely nefarious purposes. 

In other words, it is and it is not the Happy! viewers have come to expect. But whereas things get off to a somewhat slow start in the story department, the show still has plenty of attitude and willingness to show off Taylor’s signature style with one very bloody hyperactive action sequence that seems designed to mitigate concerns that the show has somehow lost its edge or its juvenile sense of humor. What seems missing from the sequence, though, is any sense that it’s connected to the larger story. From the way in which it’s resolved (spoiler: Nick kills everyone), it would seem he’s inadvertently stumbled on some run-of-the-mill wrongdoing and only stepped in because one of his sex-worker friends got wrapped up in said wrongdoing because of him.

To that end, much of ‘The War on Easter’ unfortunately feels like Happy! is spinning its wheels. That might be because the show has two more hours to fill this season, an addition that may have thrown the usual kinetic pacing off somewhat. It also has to do with the show’s intentions with regard to its characters, like Patrick Fischler’s Smoothie and especially Ritchie Coster’s now incarcerated and demonically possessed Francisco ‘Mr. Blue’ Scaramucci. The latter seems destined to play a significant part in some larger story that Happy! is building toward, while the former is revealed to be much more a part of the show’s current goings-on. 

In all, Taylor has clearly focused the show’s energies on the idea of change and rebirth and renewal. Like season 1, Happy! is happy to wear its thematic elements on its sleeve, and always ready to turn any potential subtext into text. It’s part and parcel of what makes the show tick, and while it doesn’t get off to as roaring a start as season 1, there’s plenty evidence to suggest Happy! will be back to its old ways soon enough.

Myers-Briggs® Personality Types Of Happy Endings Characters

Happy Endings is one of those TV shows that has devoted fans but not everyone has seen. Even though it may not be as popular as Friends or Seinfeld, it’s definitely worth checking out because it delivers the same laughs and interesting storylines. Happy Endings follows a group of friends living in Chicago who have to get used to life after Alex (Eliza Cuthbert) leaves Dave (Zachary Knighton) at the aisle on their wedding day.

RELATED: 10 Cancelled TV Shows Netflix Needs To Renew

The show is known for being zany and unique, and the characters are especially strong. They are each weird in their own way. What are their Myers-Briggs Personality Traits? Let’s look. Here are the MBTI of Happy Endings characters.

8 Francis Williams: ENFP

Sometimes, when a sitcom character’s dad or mom shows up, it’s especially poignant and helps move some character development along. That’s the case here. In the season one episode, “Like Father, Like Gun,” Brad’s dad, Francis Williams, is played by Damon Wayan Jr.’s actual dad, Damon Wayans. Brad is upset that his dad never says that he loves him, and he’s confused that his dad is suddenly only interested in having a good time. Of course, we know that this is because his dad has gotten good news about his health.

RELATED: ‘Happy Endings’ Could Head to USA if Canceled by ABC

Based on this episode, when it comes to this MBTI, Francis Williams would be an ENFP or “Imaginative Motivator.” This type has a “zest for life” and loves to be around other people. The official description says, “Their partner, peers, family members, and friends will likely see them as versatile and enthusiastic.”

7 Derrick: ESFP

Stephen Guarino plays Derrick on Happy Endings and he’s the “gay husband” that Penny has wanted. At first, the two of them bond so fast it’s like they’ve known each other their entire lives. But after a while, his fun-loving personality seems pretty dark and he’s actually kind of mean to her.

RELATED: 10 Seinfeld Characters And Their Real-Life Counterparts

Derrick’s favorite thing is to yell “DRAMA” at any given moment, so his MBTI has to showcase his dramatic personality. He’s an ESFP or “Enthusiastic Improviser” and sounds just like the description: “People with ESFP preferences tend to be adaptable, friendly, and expressive. They enjoy life and being around people.” He’s outgoing, loves having an active social life, and is cool with meeting new people.

6 Dave Rose: ISFP

Dave is a reliable guy who seems like a really amazing friend. He has a food truck with an amazing food pun — it’s called “Steak Me Home Tonight” — and it’s honestly had to see why Alex doesn’t want to be with him anymore. Sure, we get that she said that things didn’t feel the same anymore, but Alex is a stand-up kind of guy. In most episodes, he’s going on a date or spending the night with a new girl, and viewers hope that he’ll find The One.

RELATED: ABC Asks Viewers to Help Save ‘Happy Endings’ – Will it Work?

His MBTI is ISFP or “Versatile Supporter.” ISFPs are “sensitive” and “understanding” and “caring.” They’re there for the people who they love and they like to assist when they can. This is totally Dave. The best example? In the season one episode, “Of Mice & Jazz-Kwon-Do,” Dave hangs out at Alex’s apartment and says that he’ll help her find the mouse that has been bugging her.

5 Alex Kerkovich: INTP

Usually, when someone decides not to marry their partner on their actual wedding day, they’re not the most sympathetic character. That’s not the case with Alex. She’s still loveable and charming in her own way. Fans say that she’s ditzy and that’s definitely true, but she does have her own clothing store, which is pretty cool.

RELATED: ‘Happy Endings’ & ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23’ Move to Sundays

Alex’s MBTI would have to be INFP or “Thoughtful Idealist.” She seems to walk around with this feeling that her life will get better soon… but she just doesn’t know when or how. She’s often in a happy mood, too. INFPs don’t like “routines” and neither does Alex. She breaks up with Dave because she says that things have gotten stale and that she wants more from a relationship.

4 Brad Williams: INTP

Brad and Jane are the married couple of the friend group and they couldn’t be more perfect together. Brad’s a fun-loving guy who enjoys being with his friends and his wife. He seems like he could never have a bad day.

One aspect of Brad’s personality that fans and critics focus on is that Brad can’t do “small talk.” As it turns out, that’s a personality trait of INTPs or “Objective Analyst.” INTPs also don’t like things that make no sense.

RELATED: Friends: Where Are They Now?

The official description also sounds like Brad: “In extreme circumstances they may tend to feel alienated and upset and prone to hypersensitivity.” Brad’s very sensitive and he needs a lot of support from Jane and his friends.

3 Jane Williams: ESTJ

Eliza Coupe plays Jane perfectly as a super organized woman who never rests for even one second. She has a perfect life and really seems to have everything, from a beautiful apartment to a wonderful marriage to Brad. She loves to host brunch and enjoy the finer things in life.

RELATED: TV News Wrap Up: Feb 23 2013 – ‘Bad Teacher,’ ‘Happy Endings’ & More

Since Jane is the kind of person that we would want to plan our entire life, from a vacation that we want to take to any social plans, her MBTI is ESTJ or “Efficient Organizer.” ESTJs are described as people who “take charge” and are “structured.” The official website notes that if ESTJs are feeling too much, they will be “bossy” which describes Jane as well.

2 Max Blum: ISTJ

Adam Pally brings so much warmth to any role that he plays, and he shines as Max on Happy Endings. Max is kind-hearted and has a pretty hilarious, realistic view of the dating world. While it seems like he would be open to meeting someone, he seems less than thrilled whenever a guy gives him his number or his friends try to set him up.

Max says it like it is and that makes him a “Responsible Realist” or an ISTJ. The official description says, “People ISTJ preferences are often described as dependable and systematic,” and that sounds like Max. He’s pretty tough and it takes a lot to get him excited. He’s got all of the ISTJ traits: he’s “detached” and “reliable” and “reserved.”

1 Penny Hartz: ENTJ

Penny, played by Casey Wilson, is one of the best TV characters. She’s absolutely hilarious, quirky, and seems to live in her own world. She does things her own way, and honestly, we would love to live in Penny’s world. Whether she realizes that she can speak another language when she’s been drinking or she’s trying to meet new guys, she’s always a welcome sight on this sitcom.

Penny’s MBTI would be ENTJ or “Decisive Strategist.” When she makes up her mind, she does what she wants, and she’s a “take charge” person who has a lot of “self-confidence” as the description says. It’s safe to say that many fans of Happy Endings wish that Penny was real since she seems like the greatest friend to have.

Spider-Man: Far From Home May Include Aunt May/Happy Hogan Romance

Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) and Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) could be romantically involved with each other in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Aside from directing the first two Iron Man movies, Jon Favreau has also been playing Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) long-time driver and friend since 2008. He’s reprised the role three more times, with a fourth one coming in Avengers: Endgame. He’s watched his boss and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) be hopelessly in love for quite some time, so it’s nice to think he may have found someone he wants to be emotionally invested in.

Surprisingly, that person could be Peter Parker’s (Tom Holland) Aunt May, who debuted in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. So far, there hasn’t been any contact between Aunt May and Happy but if a brand new report is to be believed, the pair will spend more time together in Far From Home.

According to Cine Pop (via Discussing Film), Far From Home will feature a romantic relationship between Happy and Aunt May. No further detail has been revealed as to how this will go down, but the newest trailer from the film shown at Comic-Con Experience 2018 in Brazil included a scene between the two seemingly flirting with each other – something that didn’t go unnoticed by Peter.

Should this be the case, it’ll be interesting how this changes the dynamic between Peter and Happy. Throughout Homecoming, Stark’s trusted right-hand man had been dismissive of the young hero. He treated him more as an unwanted, additional responsibility while Peter eagerly tried to appease him. But since it was Peter who saved him from getting fired at his job when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) tried to hijack Stark’s stealth airplane, Happy has since then warmed up to the Queens-native. That said, since fans don’t yet know where in the MCU timeline Far From Home fits, it’s uncertain when and how Happy and Aunt May even came to be.

Tying a veteran MCU character like Happy to Spider-Man’s story through Aunt May could be an indication that the superhero is not leaving the franchise anytime soon, as it would be odd to bring them together and eventually pull them apart after just one film. It’s still uncertain how Happy can be involved in Peter’s life without Stark, and chances are that the answer lies in what ultimately goes down in Endgame. But if the popular theory about Stark dying in the Phase 3 capper comes to fruition, it’s nice to have someone like Happy who’s been with him for the longest time continue to be a part of Peter’s journey as a hero in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Further, it’s curious to see how this relationship compares to Peter’s own as he develops a closer bond with Michelle Jones (Zendaya).

Happy Death Day 2U Trailer: Tree is So Done With Time Loops

Tree is so done with time loops in the trailer for Blumhouse’s horror-comedy sequel, Happy Death Day 2U. Blumhouse has become one of the leading creative voices in horror filmmaking in recent years, between its acclaimed original projects like Jordan Peele’s Oscar-winning Get Out and its popular franchises like Insidious and The Purge (not to mention, David Gordon Green’s much celebrated Halloween sequel/reboot). The studio landed yet another hit last year with the original Happy Death Day, a film that put a Groundhog Day-style spin on the typical slasher movie scenario.

Happy Death Day helmer Christopher Landon both wrote and called the shots on 2019’s sequel, which finds college student Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) stuck in a time loop and being relentlessly pursued by a masked killer… again. However, things are different this time around, as Tree gradually discovers the truth about how she got caught in a time loop to begin with, and learns that she’s not the only one (somewhat literally) stuck in a rut now. As the sequel’s trailer trailer reveals, Tree’s boyfriend Carter (Israel Broussard), Carter’s roommate Ryan (Phi Vu), and possibly even Tree’s homicidal roommate Lori (Ruby Modine) may be trapped in the loop with her.

The Happy Death Day 2U trailer started playing in theaters with Halloween back in October, around the same time that the Happy Death Day sequel got an official poster hinting at the identity of a new (?) baby masked killer in the film. A recut version of that trailer has finally been released online for everyone to watch, as you can see in the space below.

Those who could use a recap of what happened in Happy Death Day are in luck; the Happy Death Day 2U trailer starts off with Tree recounting the major events of the original movie. The trailer shifts its focus to the sequel from there and hints that a mysterious college science experiment gone wrong (or something to that effect) is what’s really responsible for the franchise’s time loop madness. Beyond that, the trailer indicates that Happy Death Day 2U will follow in the footsteps of many horror sequels before it by going bigger and deadlier than the first installment, while at the same time carrying over its comedic elements.

In addition to being a box office success ($122 million worldwide on a $4.8 million budget), the original Happy Death Day was praised for being a funny and inventive sci-fi flavored slasher movie anchored by Rothe’s charismatic performance as Tree. The sequel won’t have the same element of surprise as far as its premise goes, but the trailer suggests that Landon’s approach to Happy Death Day 2U – namely, take the first movie’s premise and go crazy with it – might’ve been the right one. Indeed, Happy Death Day 2U looks gleefully more ridiculous than its predecessor (but still very self-aware) and may yet prove to be all the more entertaining for it.
