The Amazing Spider-Man series is struggling creatively, and Sony has been doing their best to pick up the pieces. However, they may have a plan in the works that would save and revitalize the Wall-Crawler’s franchise.
Stephen Amell doesn’t completely bite the hand that feeds, though. In his same comment, he clarifies that there are ways to make sure that Ezra Miller and Grant Gustin BOTH get a shot to run fast as The Flash.
Let’s say something terrible happens to someone you know. For the sake of argument, let’s say a cousin who you’re kind of close to gets straight up murdered by some unknown hood. You need answers, and you want them quickly. Who should you go to?
DC and Marvel made October 2014 one of the most memorable months in all of geek by announcing their film slates for the coming years. Both look like they’ll be delivering unique projects to the big screen, but as for who is “winning” between the two, Marvel still comes out on top. Here’s why.
It looks like we're truly in the Age Of Ultron, as How It Should Have Ended has created its first trailer themed version of their usual shtick. Judging by the effort, it seems to work quite well.
There are weeks that I struggle to decide what the subject of Hero Blend should be. Do I check in to see what’s happening with the X-Men, or are the developments with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice more interesting? This week there was no struggle.
Supergirl is flying onto our TV screens next year when it airs on CBS, and you might be surprised to find out that they're casting not just one lead female, but two of them.
Given all that we have learned about Avengers: Age of Ultron lately, I’m intrigued – and encouraged – by the fact that there still are mysteries lurking in the shadows of Ultron’s master plan.
Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are being set up as important characters for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but if a theory regarding their background is correct, Marvel may be setting the twins up for even bigger roles in 2018’s Inhumans.
In 2017, the Wonder Woman movie should prove to be a rather major event. Starring Gal Gadot in the titular role, the solo film will be the first live-action feature about the legendary comic book character, and the movie should play a huge role in further establishing the growing DC Cinematic Universe. But what can we actually expect to see unfold plot-wise?
These two actually have been on opposite sides of the hero fence for some time now. It’s all going to come to a head in Captain America: Civil War, and knowing that explains why Marvel has had to start explaining some of this tension heading into Age of Ultron.
We've seen the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer and it's perfect. We've seen the inevitable Avengers 2 trailer/Pinocchio mash-up and that too was pretty perfect. Next up is something a little less expected but no less amazing. A Pee-wee Herman dub of the Avengers 2 trailer, recorded by none-other than Paul Reubens...
After last week's exciting and reference filled trip to ”Corto Maltese,” “The Magician” has the Arrow back in Star(ling) City and back on the hunt for the assassin who killed the Canary. While heavy on the third season’s over-arching storyline, including an introduction of the biggest big bad The CW superhero series has seen so far, the fourth installment was rather light on DCU easter eggs.
A criminal dressed as Spider-Man robbed a store in Maine by holding up a clerk at knifepoint and he then even had the gall to punch a customer who set out to apprehend him too. This is just the latest in a long-line of crimes that have seen a thief wear a Spider-Man mask to escape justice.
While the term "Inhumans" refers to all the descendants of people who were experimented on by the Kree thousands of years ago in the Marvel universe, the movie’s main characters will likely be the Inhuman royal family. The following is a list of each character that needs to be included, as well as who is best suited to play them. If Marvel does everything right, Inhumans could be their best ensemble film yet.
LL Cool J is set to join Marvel’s expanding cinematic universe. At least, that’s according to LL Cool J. The legendary rapper and accomplished actor took to Twitter to make the announcement - and as you can imagine, it caused quite the stir.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has big plans for the coming years. To keep it all straight, we've laid out the next few years worth of Marvel Studios films, which encompass the remainder of Phase 2 and the officially announced Phase 3 lineup.
Marvel has given us our first preview of the “television event” Agent Carter, which will air on Tuesdays this January during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s hiatus. Go ahead, soak in all the action.
We’re not saying that Marvel couldn’t make changes to accommodate films based around these characters at some point. But now that Phase Three has been mapped out, and all of those choice release dates claimed, here are the 10 characters who lost big once all of the Marvel dust had settled.
Much like Marvel’s Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, this reel is a walk down memory lane, reminding fans of all the amazing things Marvel has accomplished to this date.
Sometimes on a movie duo works fabulously together onscreen, but utterly loathe each other offscreen. Rumor has it this was the case for Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart on Sabrina, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey on Dirty Dancing, and even Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling on The Notebook. Well, add Batman Forever's dastardly duo of Tommy Lee Jones and Jim Carrey to this list. It turns out Jones loathed Carrey, and had no trouble letting it be known.
It’s still a strong possibility that Marvel will figure some way to get Spider-Man into its MCU. What Marvel wants, Marvel tends to get. But seeing the aftermath of the El Capitan party, it also seems like Marvel has a backup plan.
It's been a day full of amazingly fun Marvel announcements, with the studio announcing their full slate of films between now and 2019, but we have one final treat to cap it all off. As we told you yesterday, tonight's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. featured a special clip from The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now it has arrived online for your viewing pleasure:
Tonight’s episode of The Flash may have been Captain Cold’s cool introduction, but as the ending suggested, Snart has plans that are going to make things much worse for Barry Allen in the future.
This past summer I had the pleasure of joining a small group of other journalists to visit the set of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and speaking with Mark Ruffalo behind the scenes we discovered some fascinating info about what Hulk has been up to since 2012 and what he will be doing in the upcoming blockbuster. The actor revealed a ton of great, surprising and fun stuff, so read on to learn what you can expect in the future from Hulk!
Thanks to his gamma radiation-caused “condition,” Bruce Banner a.k.a. The Hulk has a bit of a hard time maintaining romantic relationships. But he isn’t a character entirely without love. He got to rekindle some romance with Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) in Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk, and it seems that he will get a new lady love in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel has many exciting films lined up for Phase 3, but few are as important as Inhumans, which will expose us to a new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here are several reasons why Marvel made the right choice in slating an Inhumans movie for 2018.
Earlier today we met the newest member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, whenever an actor agrees to a contract with Marvel, it's never for just one film, which leads us to wonder exactly how many movies Chardick Boseman is signed on for. It turns out that we didn't have to wait that long for an answer to this burning question.
Mark Ruffalo himself revealed this interesting conundrum while chatting with myself and a small group of other journalists between set ups, discussing just how much we’ll be getting to hear The Hulk speak in the upcoming sequel. Though the production was months into filming by the time we got there, the actor revealed that he, Joss Whedon and the folks at Marvel were still working out exactly how much and when the gamma radiated beast would be talking.
So far, all signs are pointing to Ben Affleck's Batman radically different from the normal Caped Crusader that we're used to seeing on the big screen. The new Batman, so far, has been described as more seasoned and older than we're used to seeing him. But at the very least we know what hasn't changed: he still has the voice that makes the ladies pay attention.
We’re still seven months away from watching the culmination of Marvel’s Phase 2 with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we already know how Phase 3 will conclude. At today’s special presentation, Marvel Studios announced Avengers: Infinity War Part I & II for May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019 respectively.
The Hulk reached new levels of popularity after the release of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers back in 2012, but once again it has been revealed that a new standalone movie about the green goliath isn’t coming in the near future. So what exactly is going on? We got the answer from Marvel Studios Kevin Feige himself.
In case if you missed it, Marvel spent the morning dropping bombs about everything its doing through 2020. Apparently we’re getting Civil War. We’re getting Black Panther. We’re getting more Guardians Of The Galaxy. It’s a pretty great time to be a comic book fan and to be Chadwick Boseman, who was cast as Black Panther this morning.
With their big press event done and over with, there has been a lot of dust kicked up by Kevin Feige and the Marvel Cinematic Universe - all of it going straight into DC and Warner Bros' face! Among all of the news that broke with today's announcements was the confirmation that not only are we getting the Captain Marvel film we've been hearing about forever, but that Carol Danvers is officially the Captain Marvel we're getting.
When last we saw Tom Hiddleston's mischievous Loki, he'd fooled his half brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and had secured his spot on Asgard's throne. It was the visual equivalent of Marvel placing a pin in the beloved on-screen villain, knowing that they would use him at a later date. Now we know when that date will be.
Marvel is offering up some major updates today, among which are the planned release dates for their hugely anticipated upcoming projects, specifically in Phase 3. Here's the list of movies they announced with release dates and some excellent title art...
Remember during the aftermath of the Avengers: Age Of Ultron when everyone started speculating that Black Panther would make an appearance in the movie? Well, it turns out the speculation was right, at least on a vague level. We still don’t know whether T’Challa will show up in the upcoming film, but we do know he will be getting his own movie!
Marvel’s blind superhero is getting another shot at live-action next year when Netflix kicks off their Marvel Studios programming. Daredevil will follow the adventures of Matt Murdock, who uses his enhanced sense to fight crime in Hell’s Kitchen as the vigilante Daredevil. The show is still seven months away, but here’s everything we know about it so far.
Thanks to the debut trailer that landed online last week, excitement for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron is at a fever pitch. Fans who have been closely following the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are thrilled at the prospect of their favorite big screen superhero team reassembling and working together to fight a robotic menace.
When Marvel Studios released the first concept art from Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron back in March, comic book fans became giddy with excitement as they got their first look at the cinematic version of one of Iron Man’s most legendary suits: the Hulkbuster armor. As awesome as it was, however, the image also generated interesting speculation regarding exactly why Iron Man and Hulk would be fighting.
While Bettany’s look as Vision has remained a closely guarded secret, I got to learn a bit more about the character and Bettany’s rough behind-the-scenes experience bringing him to life this past summer while visiting the set of Avengers 2 along with a small group of other film journalists.
Although Doctor Strange is not as familiar to mainstream audiences as characters like Iron Man or Captain America, Marvel has proven that they can take obscure characters and popularize them to unimaginable levels.
While Batman doesn't have the incredible superpowers that Superman gets as a result of Earth's yellow sun, the reason he stands a chance in a one-on-one battle is because of his smarts. Bruce Wayne doesn't have laser vision and he can't fly, but he can build a kick-ass suit covered in the special alien material that weakens his opponent. And that's exactly what the Dark Knight reportedly does in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Let's be real: the first trailer of The Avengers: Age of Ultron just wasn't enough. Luckily, Marvel is a company that cares, which is why this week's new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature some brand new footage from the movie - as will the coming 75th anniversary special, Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! that will be airing one week from tomorrow.
In Marvel Comics, the team known as The Avengers has never included just one particular set of heroes; it's a rotating membership. We've always expected that the movie version of the Avengers would follow the same path, but it looks like it's happening sooner than we thought - as in some time in the midst of Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The Flash just cast yet another character from the comics. This time around the CW has hired on network frequenter Malese Jow to play a character that should be familiar for fans. We've got all the details on the brand new character.
With more of you having had a chance to see what all the buzz was about, we thought today would be a great time to dig into the inspirations that made this thoroughly modern and wildly original movie everything it is. Basically, what movies helped Birdman take flight.
A recent extended episode order means we’re getting more Gotham, which means more bad guys’ foolishly concocted plans will come to light. And while we’re fine with Harvey Dent and his prophetic coin coming into this, here are ten villains from Batman’s history that we hope stay gloriously absent from Gotham’s underworld.
With success of the Fox series Gotham, Warner Bros and DC have decided to create another prequel series for its other most iconic superhero. That’s right, DC TV is heading out of this world for a TV series based on Superman’s home planet Krypton.
Over the last few months we've heard rumors about a number of different actor being up for the part of Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - from Joaquin Phoenix to Jared Leto to Keanu Reeves - but only now do we finally have the answer to this seemingly endless riddle. Marvel Studios has finally found their Doctor Strange star, and it's none other than Benedict Cumberbatch.
