Aside from the money, Pace wants revenge against Schultz, the man behind his incarceration.

As a teenager in Austria, Wolfgang Puck harnessed his love of cooking to escape the harsh rule of his stepfather. A local apprenticeship forged his path to train at a revered French restaurant before landing in America at age 24. In 70s Hollywood, Puck began working at Ma Maison, crafting an original menu around fresh ingredients, making the once-tacky eatery a popular, acclaimed darling. Still, the lack of acknowledgement from Ma Maison’s owner pushed Puck to take the biggest risk of his career and open his first restaurant, Spago, an instant hit where famous clientele dote equally on Puck’s new American cuisine and personality. Almost by accident, Puck created the concept of a “celebrity chef” with his decades-spanning television appearances, building a staggering global empire of restaurants, cafes and products for home cooks. But at home, the frenetic professional demands disrupted his family life. From director David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), and the creators of Chef’s Table, WOLFGANG is a candid, inspiring and emotional documentary that follows a legend as he reckons with the price of his dreams.- Rotten Tomatoes

Though it’s unclear what Loki’s plans will be throughout the series, there’s a scene where he exclaims that Heimdall (who died in “Avengers: Infinity War”) and Thor “better be ready.” Is Heimdall also coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? How will Thor feel about his antagonistic sibling coming back? Only time will tell. –Indie Wire
