Production is currently underway on Captain America: Civil War, and since they’re doing a lot of shooting outside in Atlanta, that means set pics, set pics and more set pics! What we’ve seen so far reveals the new Avengers – Captain America, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow and Ant-Man (?) – in action against Crossbones Brock Rumlow in his nouveau Crossbones armor. But the question, in the midst of all this and the rumored cornucopia of heroes and villains in Civil War, is what role Bucky “The Winter Soldier” Barnes plays in the plot. We know that Sebastian Stan is back, though we have yet to see hide nor hair of him on set, so what is Bucky up to in Civil War, and how does he fit into the plot? We may have an answer, and this should go without saying, spoiler alert! (more…)

Fox‘s Fantastic Four reboot has been a symphony of Hollywood blunders: production problems, fan backlash, and the studio’s inability to properly respond to or market the movie to fans has put a bad taste in just about everyone’s mouth. What’s interesting is that a simple cross promotion video from Movietickets.com handles the marketing of the movie better than those tasked with the job at Fox. (more…)

It was one of the largest, most hear-warming, and nerdiest acts of altruism ever undertaken. Five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott wanted nothing more than to be Batman, and it looked like he was on his way to licking the disease that had made him so sick so young, the planning began to turn the City of San Francisco in Gotham City, and to turn young Miles into Batkid. You’re porbably aware of the story, it was national news there back in 2013, but a new documentary called Batkid Begins promises to reveal the story behind the story, as the saying goes. After some initial film festival success, Batkid Begins looks to be coming to a theater neat you later this summer. Want to see a trailer? You came to the right place. (more…)

There’s a curious phenomenon occurring with Marvel Comics Merchandise these days. Classic characters are disappearing from classic scenes, characters that just happen to belong to the FOX studio superhero movie portfolio. That’s right, not only did Marvel cancel the Fantastic Four comic, now it seems that the characters FOX owns the movie rights to are now being actively removed from Marvel Merchandise like the shirt above.

Season-Two-The-Flash

How about that Flash season finale, huh? Nerd Bastard Rush Urbalejo dropped his thoughts on last night’s adventure a bit earlier today, but fans are already looking forward to season two of the superhero series, and so are the people behind the TV show from both sides of the camera. Granted, production on the second season doesn’t begin for a couple of months yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start teasing fans with the potential implications of last night’s time travel and wormhole-created possibilities. It’s easy to say that The Flash outdid itself in season one, but can it top itself in season two. Not even 24 hours after the show wrapped for the season, all signs point to yes. (more…)

There’s more sidelines video coming out of Anthony and Joe Russo’s Captain America: Civil War set, this time around we’ve got Cap (Chris Evans) and Crossbones (Frank Grillo) going toe to toe in an open air market.
