SpiderMan Far From Homes new trailer spoils Avengers Endgame explodes the MCU

first_img 26 Photos Now playing: Watch this: The three-minute trailer, released Monday, shows Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) grieving the loss of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), the latter having perished at the end of Endgame. Parker quickly reveals to police officers (in his Spidey costume, of course) that he’s going on vacation with his friends, all of whom appear to have been dusted and resurrected since it appears Ned (Jacob Batalon), Michelle “MJ” Jones (Zendaya) and Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori) are all the same age. Parker is seen avoiding a phone call from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), much to Hogan’s dismay. But as seen in the earlier trailer, Fury and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) recruit Parker from his European trip and introduce him to Quentin Beck (Jake Gyllenhaal) — who is revealed to be from another Earth in a different dimension.The trailer confirms that there is now an MCU Multiverse, one in which Gyllenhaal’s Beck is from another Earth apparently caused by Thanos’ snap tearing a hole in the dimension (something we even hinted at coming after Endgame). New Marvel release dates may also provide some info on this front. “Are you going to step up or not?,” Fury asks in the trailer. Jay Maidment Parker is hoping to continue his trip, but Fury tells him that other heroes like Thor and Captain Marvel are not available right now. Also, if it wasn’t obvious enough that Spider-Man is the only available option to deal with threats to Earth, MJ tells him it’s obvious that Parker’s Spidey.We also get looks at Mysterio flying through the city, Spider-Man dealing with a fiery Molten Man and Hogan trying to rescue Parker’s friends by saying he works with Spider-Man.In the comics, Mysterio is typically an acclaimed “bad guy,” but it looks like we may be getting a European buddy-comedy in this film — which leaves many fans with a lot of questions. The newly updated official movie description gives little away: Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.But previously, the synopsis from Sony seemed to insinuate that Spidey would team up with someone, but maybe the Beck buddy comedy is a misdirect: “Our friendly neighborhood Super Hero decides to join his best friends Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang on a European vacation. However, Peter’s plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are quickly scrapped when he begrudgingly agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks, creating havoc across the continent!”This multiverse was rumored previously, and only somewhat fueled by an interview the directors did with EW, wherein Joe Russo confirmed that Ned was also dusted during the Snap and his reunion with Peter in Endgame is just that: “That’s the two of them seeing each other for the first time after having disappeared.” 2:49 There’s also been much speculation about the film’s name; Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige himself said he likes the multiple meanings behind it, telling sister site ComicBook.com: “It ties into Homecoming, not just keeping that word going, which we like and we liked it more than Homecoming 2, but that notion of ‘home’ is a word that has dual meanings we’d like to continue with this [MCU] version of Spider-Man. So, Far From Home has multiple meanings.”Far From Home arrives in theaters on July 2. Tags First published May 6, 2019 at 6:07 a.m. PT.Updated May 7, 10:27 a.m. PT: Adds new Sony shorter synopsis.

12 states sue Trump Administration over frozen fueleconomy penalties

first_img 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value More From Roadshow Car Industry Enlarge ImageThe legal system isn’t always the fastest, so there may be some time before an update on this matter. Getty Images In 2016, the Obama administration announced an inflation-based adjustment to penalties related to corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) violations, dramatically increasing the amount automakers must pay for vehicles that gulp fuel in excess of federal standards. The Trump administration reversed that move and froze the penalties, which automakers certainly liked, but it appears a number of states did not.A coalition of 12 states and the District of Columbia, led by the Attorneys General of California and New York, filed a lawsuit in the Second Circuit of Appeals challenging the rule freezing the CAFE penalties. The Obama administration’s rule would have hiked penalties to $14 for every 0.1 miles per gallon a vehicle consumes in excess of federal CAFE standards. NHTSA’s new rule would keep the penalty at the pre-inflation figure of $5.50 per 0.1 mpg. The lawsuit contends that NHTSA’s new rule is unlawful for several reasons. In a press release from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, NHTSA’s decision violates the 2015 Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act, and the statement also claims NHTSA incorrectly interpreted its “statutory obligations” and is “based on inaccurate assumptions of the economic impact of the inflation-adjusted penalties.” Automaker lobbying groups claimed earlier that the higher penalties could bump regulatory costs by $1 billion.NHTSA did not immediately return a request for comment, but a spokesperson told Reuters that “it was following the intent of Congress to ensure the penalty rate was set at the level required by law.”Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation, under which NHTSA operates, is still working to finalize its adjustments to Obama-era CAFE regulations, which were set to increase to 46.7 mpg by 2025. The DOT is proposing a freeze at 37 mpg instead. It’s worth noting that CAFE calculations are not the same as the EPA figures you see on window stickers — EPA figures are lower. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 28 Photoscenter_img Tags 2 Comments The best hybrid cars and SUVs available in America Share your voicelast_img read more

SpaceX expands rideshare missions on Falcon 9

If a small sateliite company is delayed due to “development or production challenges,” SpaceX will also let them put 100% of their payment toward rebooking a later mission.Pricing goes up to $6 million for up to 300kg of payload mass, with a charge of $20,000 per kg of additional payload mass. Elon Musk shares behind-the-scenes pics as SpaceX Starship aims for orbit SpaceX Falcon 9 launch delayed to replace ‘suspect valve’ NASA puts SpaceX, Boeing ISS flight test dates ‘under review’ “With SpaceX as a launch partner, small satellites can fly on dedicated missions with the world’s leading commercial launch provider at a fraction of traditional costs,” the space company said.The first mission will launch between November 2020 and March 2021, with the subsequent two SmallSat Rideshare Program missions scheduled for the first quarters of 2022 and 2023.

SpaceX Elon Musk’s SpaceX is expanding its Falcon 9 rideshare missions to target small satellite operators, saying Monday it will have “regularly scheduled, dedicated” missions. The service will start at $2.25 million for 150kg (330 pounds) of payload mass, plus $15,000 for every kilogram above that.The company pioneered the reusable rocket, lending it out for rideshare missions as a faster, less expensive way for companies to get their products into orbit.
