What makes a great Star Trek villain? That’s easy. It’s always been about character. They’re never one-dimensional. (Unless you count Harry Mudd, played more for comic relief than anything else.) They’re sympathetic. The same goes for pegging a great Star Trek alien.
J.J. Abrams has a lot of pressure to deliver with the first trailer for December 2015’s Star Wars: Episode VII. So, what do we hope that he chooses to include in the first teaser (when it eventually drops)? Let’s run through the options.
Looking to Fury, Birdman, and John Wick for inspiration, we've pulled together a selection of World War II dramas, showbiz comedies, and vengeance-fueled thrillers.
The Avengers 2 is being titled The Avengers: Age of Ultron. The sequel will add new superheroes to the returning group of Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. Find out who those new superheroes are, and more, right here.
Believe it or not, The Martian has built itself quite the cast list. We run down who's on board for Ridley Scott's latest project after the jump.
There was a lot to take in from the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, but one of the most nagging questions from the preview came from a blink-and-you-miss-it shot: why is Captain America back in the 1940s?
Fans who have been pouring over every frame of the trailer have been speculating wildly about the identity of the actress in the scene, throwing out possibilities based on other characters seen in the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the cast list featured on the movie’s IMDb page.
Here on Hero Blend we have spent a ton of time talking about our intense anticipation for the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but this week has seen that level of anticipation skyrocket even higher. Judging by the debut trailer Joss Whedon’s 2015 blockbuster looks like it is going to completely shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s going to send thousands of chills down your spine while doing so. Guys: There are no strings on Ultron. This is the time to panic!
I am beginning to think Disney's Into The Woods may kill me, it so enjoys toying with my heart. Just yesterday the reveal of the long-shrouded Wolf (brought to life by Johnny Depp) slaughtered my expectations for this movie musical translation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway production. But now Disney has unveiled the gorgeous new Into the Woods featurette you see above, which gives us our best look yet at this sprawling world of fairy tales gone feral.
Yesterday, the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer took the geek community by storm. We saw a variety of cool things, from the Hulkbuster armor to a creepy Ultron to Thor choking Tony out, the list goes on. However, there was one crucial element that was missing from the preview that Marvel should have shown. A character that will have a big role to play in the film.
We’ve been hearing whispers about Black Panther’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for years and years now, and while he hasn’t shown up yet, it may not be long before the character makes his live-action feature debut. After all, the brand new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer has what appear to be some rather big hints that Black Panther is coming sooner rather than later.
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron has started sharing its secrets with the rest of us common folk. However, as much as they reveal in the teaser trailer on a surface level, you'd be surprised how many moments had us throwing our hands in the air, screaming "WTF?"
While Marvel has done a great job with its superheroes, they haven’t had the greatest luck with their villains. For every Loki or Alexander Pierce, there’s an Anton Vanko or Malekith to offset things. However, if the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is any indication, the insane robot Ultron may switch things up when he debuts next year.
The folks at Marvel Studios are well mastered in the art of the tease. Not only do they manage to maintain an air of secrecy around all of their projects as they move through production, but all of their trailers bring big thrills and leave fans always wanting more. The debut trailer for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron fits this description perfectly. It now feels like we know a lot more about the film, but we’re also left with a bunch of burning questions.
There was a time when Ryan Phillippe was known more for being “Mr. Reese Witherspoon” than he was for being a noted actor. In his new film, Phillippe plays a slightly distorted version of himself – a once-famous actor who’s seeking the next big break that will put him back in the conversation at the major studios.
