There Is A Reason Marvel Is Not Planning A ‘Hulk’ Solo Movie

- 12-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

After Mark Ruffalo‘s superb performance playing the Hulk in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers (2012), his incarnation as the green-monster-with-anger-issues became a fan favorite; leading to the ultimate question “When will Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) be getting his own film.” Thusly, when Marvel Studios started rolling out Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor standalone movies, the Hulks absence from Marvel‘s release schedules became more apparent. Mark Ruffalo has appeased fans slightly by promising that the Hulk has a much bigger role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will this suffice? It actually turns out there is a reason the Hulk has not been included in Marvel’s scheduling for a solo outing in the Cinematic Universe, and although you may be disappointed at first, it’s actually a really cool reason. We will leave you to judge for yourselves. (more…)

Going around the blogosphere today, is this Hot Toys 1/6th scale figure of Iron Man from Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Other sites have been toting it as “First Look at New Iron Man Armor from AOU”. Uh, excuse me, but wasn’t there a Age of Ultron trailer released a few weeks ago which got a billion or so views, and in it, multiple appearances/shots of the actual on screen Iron Man in armor? Release a toy, and now suddenly everyone cares? It befuddles me sometimes how certain things gain momentum around the net. Regardless, this is one of the best Iron Man toys submitted unto Nerddom and truth be told, it does give us our best close-up look at the new armor.  Have looksie after the break and file it under “stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t afford to have”.  (more…)

James Gunn On Proposed ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ And ‘Avengers’ Crossover

- 12-12-14Comics, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

AvengersGuardiansCrossover

Ever since Marvel announced its release slate for the next five-years, everyone presumed it would eventually lead up to an Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover. James Gunn has been asked about this numerous times as of late, especially while he has been on the promotional circuit pushing the Blu-ray and dvd release of his film. In interviews, Gunn always comes across as being very protective of the world and characters he has created in Guardians Of The Galaxy, so when there are ever any questions about a crossword within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he always seems  pretty despondent about the whole concept of the Avengers and the Guardians teaming up. However, given that they are the Guardians of the Galaxy; it would make more sense to give Gunn more time for the fans to explore his characters and their motives in more detail, and to explore the Galaxy that they are protecting. Therefore, it’s understandable at this point in time that Gunn‘s mindset is nowhere near, even contemplating how the crossover is going to come about at this point in time. After all, he has only just recently started work on the Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  (more…)

Marvel has officially announced the casting of German actor Daniel Bruhl for an unspecified role in Captain America: Civil War. The actor – who is probably best known for his ambiguously endearing-but-nasty role as Frederick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds – joins a cast that already boasts three superheroes. Captain America: Civil War has an impressive line-up, including Chris Evans’ Cap. America, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, newcomer Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. Unfortunately there is still no word on Frank Grillo’s involvement in the film as Crossbones. (more…)

Jessica Chastain Is Ready To Join The MCU And We Have A Few Ideas

Jessica-Chastain-061

Jessica Chastain has shown time and time again that she has the acting chops to take on pretty much any role.  Most of the world has been tracking her Hollywood progress ever since her scene-stealing turn in 2011’s The Help, for which she earned an Oscar nod.  With her latest outing, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic, Interstellar, Chastain has now stepped into the genre waters, even if it’s just wetting her feet.  It appears, however, that she is loving the feel of the water and is interested in trying her hand at a role that plenty of us would love to see her in: the role of a superhero.
