This SDCC14 has been a whirlwind of Nerdy News and although many might argue that it’s not the number one SDCC event, Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron is bringing all kinds of fun news to the weekend. This time around we’ve got video interviews with just about the entire cast. All the big hitters are here, Downey Jr, Ruffalo, Jackson, all the major characters along with a new comer to the set that has been in every Iron Man and Avengers movie, J.A.R.V.I.S. Paul Bettany. Find out what he thinks about his transformation into the Vision and MOAR!!! (more…)
We were teased the other day with mysterious hints that there would be big news from Marvel coming out of The View today. Now we know what it’s all about. It seems that Thor has lost his mojo and his hammer after he becomes unworthy to hold the mighty Uru hammer. Details are sparse, but the big announcement was that a female character will be filling the gap and taking up Thor’s hammer and powers. (more…)
It’s one of those projects that seems to have no one excited, but the studio seems dead-set to proceed with anyway, but there has been some movement on the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. The new film based on the 2012 hit revisionist fairy tale will be under the guidance of Shawshank Redemption filmmaker and Walking Dead TV series creator Frank Darabont, his first film since the Stephen King adaptation The Mist in 2007. Not only is Darabont’s involvement the rumor du jour about the project, but sources are saying this sequel will tilt a little more towards one character in the title than the other. (more…)
If you’re looking for a hero that rivals even Superman in his ability to take on all challenges, look no further than Doc Savage. This pulp hero of the early 20th century is looking to make a comeback via comic book movie writer Shane Black. While no release date has been set as of yet, it is known that Black shall both write and direct Doc Savage and that it’s high on his priority list. And furthermore, he may be looking toward Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, to play the title role. (more…)
There are sure to be more on set videos and pictures popping up on the Internet while Joss Whedon and crew continue production and filming for Avengers: Age of Ultron at the UEA Campus Norwich in England. There’s no way they could keep a lid on it surrounded by large groups of tech savvy, curious young adults. Here’s one video that features a look at the big three, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). (more…)
I guess the countdown to the home video release of Thor: The Dark World is officially on as we start getting these deleted scenes and other treats. Today we get a look at the mother/son dynamic, and we get a bit of inside baseball on how the makers of Thor staged that awesome cameo (and if you saw the movie, you know what one I mean). (more…)
Thor: The Dark World is visually epic and full of battles and world saving shenanigans, but the Asgardian demi-God’s second solo outing lacks the heart and punch of its predecessor. Simply put, you may walk out of this with a smile on your face, but you’re likely to forget why by the time you get to the car.
Thor: The Dark World is only weeks away and with it comes the next part of Marvel‘s Phase 2 and another step closer to The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This clip has absolutely nothing to do with any of that, I just want to make sure you weren’t forgetting what all this is building towards. That being said, what this clip does feature is Heimdall (Idris Elba), Guardian of the Bifrost, showing us why he should never be taken lightly. (more…)
The sibling rivalry between Thor and Loki will be stronger than ever this November when Thor: The Dark World releases. And as you’ll see demonstrated in this latest clip, Thor and Loki will be, predictably, sassy with one another. (more…)
We’ve seen a portion of this before in the previously released trailers, but now we have this charming little scene between Thor and his evil (adopted) brother, Loki, in its entirety. From what we’ve gotten our hands on so far, this is what has me most excited about Thor: The Dark World, as Tom Hiddleston once again nails the role of the sneaky demi-god.
