Here’s a fun fact. If you fully spell out Robert Downey Junior‘s name, the only vowel in the English alphabet missing is an “A”. You know, A-E-I-O-U-&-Sometimes-Y. Now word is making the Internet rounds that someone at Marvel felt that obvious hole in Robert Downey Jr’s life needed to be filled. Filled with that 30 foot tall Avengers “A” in the movie, the one pictured above. (more…)

Yesterday, we reported that the Marvel temper tantrum that resulted in the cancellation of the Fantastic Four comic book series’ was no more than the internet’s best way to avoid blaming itself.  Rather than accepting that low sales killed FF, many fans are blaming Marvel’s decision to pull the plug on the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.  If these fans are to be believed, Marvel is actively trying to sabotage the film’s success by removing any products that they consider advertising for the 20th Century Fox reboot.  This notion seemed completely ridiculous and implausible, considering the fact that Marvel really has nothing to fear from any other studio at this point.  Well, as much as I hate to think it, we just received some news that lends more credibility to rumor.

Preacher is one of those properties that was kicked around Hollywood for years before a live action adaptation was finally snatched up by the unlikeliest of show runners: comedy masters Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  Now that we know that the comic book adaptation has a home on AMC, questions about other aspects of the production have started to crop up in people’s minds.  To date, there have been no announcements that would give fans of the hit comic book series even a hint as to who would fill the shoes of Jesse Custer, the “Preacher” mentioned in the title, or who would be at the helm of the adaptation.  While it may not be anywhere near official, Seth Rogen and director Duncan Jones (the upcoming Warcraft) recently had a very interesting Twitter conversation about that exact subject.

The ‘Assassin’s Creed’ Movie May Have Just Landed A Huge Marvel Star

Can we all agree that Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best things to ever come out of Hollywood?  The man has some serious acting chops and inspires other actors to bring out their best game; his tragedy-turned-success story is an infamous example of how someone one can pull themselves out of the deepest depths and still come out smelling like roses; and he is a hell of a charming leading man.  Marvel demonstrated their pure brilliance by grabbing the only man anyone can even see in the Iron Man suit these days and while this may take him out of the running for any other superhero, a new video game movie adaptation may have grabbed Mr. Downey for a role, giving fanboys and fangirls yet another reason to love geekdom.

Earlier this week, Bill Murray drummed up quite a bit of excitement for Ghostbusters 3, a movie that he absolutely refuses to join.  All it really took was him mentioning his choices for a female led Ghostbusters sequel to set the internet on fire.  One of the actresses that he named for a potential sliming was Melissa McCarthy, who seemed like she would be more than happy to take up the proton pack if the chance was presented.  However, another one of the actresses Murray mentioned is keeping her cards close to the vest when it comes to any sort of desire to join the film.  The usually talkative Kristen Wiig has decided to keep mum about the prospect. Sort of. (more…)

If you are a child of the 80’s, there is very little doubt that you enjoyed the Nickelodeon series, Double Dare.  The mess-a-minute game show ran from 86-93 and a reboot series would make its way to television in 2000, though its run was considerably shorter than the original.  Well, it appears that one of the hosts of the classic series would love to give it another go and if the Nickelodeon execs are ready to bring on the slime, so is he.  It appears that Marc Summers, the only DD host in many fans’ minds, wants to get back to the mess with a new reboot.

You’ve probably heard that a lot of the films released over the weekend tanked big time at the box office. Frank Miller‘s Sin City followup being the costliest of the weekend opening floppers. Those box office results are interesting, but what really ices my cupcake, marshmallow’s my Hot Chocolate, and Baby Powders my tushie is that James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is back in the number one spot!  (more…)

Game Of Thrones fans are about to get so much Dorne, they won’t know whether to fight or throw orgies. Enigmatic lover, family man and fearsome fighter Oberyn Martell was a fantastic addition to last season’s consistently unpredictable forays. With Spain playing the part of his homeland, we’re going to see a ton of his homies and kin. But it’s not all about Dorne, we’ve got a couple other Westerosi to contend with too. Book readers are sure to froth over some of these mentions and we finally find out which of the Red Viper’s daughters Keisha Castle-Hughes is playing. Here’s a quick hint: all our guesses were wrong. And to commemorate our failure, HBO provided us with two videos to watch with varied levels of satisfaction.
