If the current Marvel movies attempted Thunderbolts, it would probably just be a villain team-up a la Avengers. Which means you'd probably have Tom Hiddleston's Loki, Hugo Weaving's Red Skull, maybe robo-Arnim Zola, Samuel Stern from The Incredible Hulk (last seen mutating into The Leader), and maybe Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer from Iron Man 2.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, however, comes as part of a package deal with Elizabeth Olsen. Instead of Magneto being their father, they are now struggling orphans who have presumably political anger towards the Avengers and the American imperialism they represent.
Do you like free stuff? Are you excited for Guardians Of The Galaxy? Then you're going to want to take a look at what we've found.
Feige teased the possibility that Iron Man might meet the real Mandarin, and that Captain America may not have seen the last of Red Skull.
In other words, Iron Man made him what he is, but Downey doesn't need the suit anymore, nor does he wish for it to define him. Early reports on Avengers: Age Of Ultron, however, suggest he's got a smaller supporting role this time around. Is his desire to downplay Tony Stark going to result in the marginalization of his most beloved part?
As a hotly sought stuntman, Hanton has stepped into the boots, suits and capes of such superheroes as Batman, Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern and James Bond. With San Diego Comic Con about to kick off, we wanted to get to know the man behind some of modern superhero movies' most exhilarating moments, and learn how some of these mind-blowing stunts came together.
Joss Whedon is well known as the emperor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but before he claimed his throne he still had a fair amount of clout. At least, he had enough clout to demand the previous draft of the script be jettisoned in favor of his own.
So we all know that Sam Wilson is the new Captain America. But do we really know the man they call The Falcon? Looks like it's time to better know an Avenger and dig into Mr. Wilson's history.
So, aside from some obvious guesses, those seven slots could be filled with several different Marvel properties. Which are they? Will we see The Punisher again? Could The Inhumans make their presence felt? And what's Thor up to?
Rights issues can become quite complex. One studio likely doesn't just “own” the rights to something. It's why Marvel owns the rights to Spider-Man in print and on television, wheres Sony can only make the movies. Some rights expire. Some exist in perpetuity.
But yeah, yeah, yeah, motivation...what's really going on between Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, who are played by Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson and being re-conceived here as Eastern European orphans? Apparently Joss Whedon is going to have some fun with one of the more perverse suggestions of the Marvel universe.
While the first 25 episodes of Hero Blend focused solely largely on superhero adaptations both at the movies and on television, this week we’re going back to the source. Marvel has made two huge announcements about a couple of their biggest characters, and it has sent a shockwave through the entire comic book-appreciating world.
Anthony Mackie, who plays the Falcon in the movies, would be a GREAT Captain America, and it would be a nice surprise to see him take on the mantle when Chris Evans bows out . But as we mentioned in that original piece, it's probably not likely. And here are the reasons why.
Marvel promised Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live on the same night as the superhero adventure's worldwide premiere. Along with this enticing ensemble, the Monday episode will also boast exclusive bonus content.
Stark has gifted Ultron with some of his traits, but apparently none of his humanity, because Ultron surveys all around him and learns that the world is full of great suffering and tragedy, and to remove that, he'll need to eliminate the cause: humanity.
