Hayley Atwell did a Ghostbusters by coming, seeing and kicking ass. From the minute she first showed up as Agent Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, she became a favorite for her stoic approach to dealing with b.s. and bad guys. Marvel and Disney then featured her in a one-shot short where her brand of 1940′s butt-kicking espionage left fans wanting more and more. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna get too. In fact, we’re about to get so much Hayley Atwell, half the globe’s geeks just might overdoes on her hot retro violence. Not only does Agent Carter have a new show coming our way via the ABC network, but she’s also coming back to the big screen as early as 2015. You got this far because you’re a nerd. But only real bastards keep clicking! (more…)

The fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer just hit the Internet featuring the new song Shell Shocked. Music has plays a big part in this summer’s blockbuster movies and the TMNT production team looks to be continuing the trend. We’re quickly closing in on the August 8th release date for the reboot and I fins myself still on the fence about this latest TMNT incarnation. There are a lot of things that bug me about this reboot, beginning with those noses and lips, and while some of the new stuff, like this trailer, are starting weakening my determination to hate this reboot, I’m still not sure which side of the fence I’ll end up on.

Roberto Orci Says ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Will Have Continuity(?)

- 07-22-14Film, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Funny story. Remember last week when it was announced that Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci was hired to help shepherd the new Power Rangers movie to the big screen with the assistance of X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz? Well, Orci’s now saying that when this new Power Rangers flick arrives on the big screen, it will have a very important ingredient that will lead to universal success: continuity. “It’s got a continuity within the world,” says Orci. “I can’t tell you what, but it does have a continuity.” Which leads everyone who’s ever watched the series to say, “Power Rangers had continuity?” (more…)

Featuring images from the fifth season of The Walking Dead and next summer’s blockbuster in waiting Jurassic World, these collectables will get fans mouths watering (or not, we nerds are so hard to predict).

How Do These 17 Minutes of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Footage Make You Feel?

Chances are that if you’re an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan from the 80s and 90s, you are having a hard time accepting the new reboot produced from Michael Bay.  To be fair the “fans” of the original comics and the 1990 film were never going to be satisfied with whatever this movie was going to be.  The idea was to take material to another level for today’s youthful demographic and not just to appease overly-nostalgic fans. With that said, this latest behind-the-scenes video has the actors, doing what seems to be,  brainwashing audiences on “how awesome this movie is”. (more…)

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Images–Post-Nuclear Brutality As Only Australia Can Provide

- 07-21-14Cool Stuff, Film Posted by James Daniels

George Miller‘s long-awaited fourth installment in the franchise that essentially birthed the post-apocalyptic subgenre is looking good: In the hot, dusty, lawless, sadomasochistic way moviegoers of the 1980s came to know and love (including myself).

Mad Max: Fury Road seems to be a semi-reboot taking place after the events of the original Mad Max–meaning it is intended to either precede or replace The Road Warrior. Like that film, it’s low on dialogue. Miller reportedly relied more on storyboards than on screenplay in composing the film, but given that he’s had the better part of 30 years to get the 4th Mad Max film right, I’m fairly optimistic for Fury Road. Follow the jump for cast details, new images, and the release date:

Feige Rounds up Rumors on ‘Guardians’, ‘Sub-Mariner’ and ‘Ant-Man’

- 07-21-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Marvel

It’s busy days for the man that manages the Marvel Cinematic Universe, producer Kevin Feige. Not only does he have his studio’s biggest gamble, Guardians of the Galaxy, hitting theaters in a few short weeks, but he’s got to stun the nerdy masses this coming weekend at San Diego Comic Con, which is pretty much his industry’s trade show. As usual, there’s a lot of rumor, speculation, and outright innuendo when it comes to anything from Marvel Studios, so Feige is once again playing rumor control, and setting the record straight on a couple of things, amongst them: fear of Edgar Wright, a future on film for Namor The Sub-Mariner, and the potential for franchise crossovers. Let’s get into it! (more…)

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Admits To DC Hero Role, Kinda

With the recently hot topic of Marvel posting release dates of a plethora of future flicks, everybody forgets that Warner Brothers has 11 comic book movies also in development. Like that bald-headed stepchild its parents keep ditching at the mall, DC has a habit of getting lost in the Hollywood shuffle and struggles to get attention. Today, we got a new piece of news concerning Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and his oft-reported plans of playing a superhero. No stranger to dropping hints, The Rock has a big mouth on Twitter and in interviews when it comes to donning tights on film. Problem is, he can almost never be trusted. But here he is again tossing clues like softballs about what seems like a done deal.  (more…)

Will The DC TV Shows And Movies Share The Same Universe?

- 07-21-14Comics, Film, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

For decades, entertainment franchises have been able to share universes in both television and movies. The Twilight Zone did it. Firefly did it with Serenity. The Doctor Who series did it with the Doctor Who TV movie. The X-Files did it with big and small screens. And Marvel is doing it with surgical precision and innovation in combining their cinematic world with the ABC network’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. And then there’s Netflix’s upcoming four-series deal. That, in particular, will expand Marvel’s live action roster with the Hell’s Kitchen Heroes – Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. So, not only is occupying the same universe a thing that’s worked successfully, it’s proven to be a smart move on several occasions in terms of continuity. DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns disagrees. (more…)

The Planet Hulk movie rumor has taken on a life of its own on the Internet. Whedon, Feige, and Ruffalo can’t do an interview without someone asking about the possibilities. You can imagine then, what happened when an alien character species from the Planet Hulk storyline showed up in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy early production stills. You’ve got it. The Internet grabbed hold and ran like the wind with it. Gunn has commented about the subject before, but never with the vehemence of his latest attempt to smash the Planet Hulk movie rumor forever.
