While it may seem like a small detail at first glance, a film’s title plays a big role in not only the marketing, but also establishing your first impression of what you’ll be watching. The subject, theme, intent; anything really, can be built into the name in order to prepare you for what you’re about to see. Imagine going to see a movie called Pocket Lint that ends up being a detective yarn about a serial arsonist. Perhaps something called Lampshade that ends up being about an alien invasion set in the Elizabethan era. Not only would those both be confusing, they’d be down right stupid. So it’s no surprise that Marvel and Sony, clearly keeping over-analyzers like myself in mind, are reported to be eying a certain exciting new working title for the newest Spider-film. (more…)
Telltale Games, the developers behind classic franchises like Sam & Max and Tales of Monkey Island are going to be producing a game for MARVEL in the not-too-distant future. Details at the moment are scarce, but one assumes it will be in Telltale’s signature point-and-click adventure style, and the question is…will that work for a big-budget release?
Paul Rudd made an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman last night, bringing with him the clip of Scott Lang getting his hands on the Ant-Man suit for the first time! First appearances can often be deceiving and this one certainly was. (more…)
You’ve seen him in a few movie posters. He was even teased in one of the films latest trailers. Now a new clip from Marvel’s Age of Ultron gives us The Vision is all his glory.
Actor Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind) was on BBC’s The One Show discussing his role in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and he brought with him the first clip featuring the enigmatic humanoid.
If you want to go into the film having the Visions reveal be a surprise, then you may want to avoid watching this. But, just like a drug addict who fell off the wagon (metaphorically) you know you just can’t help yourself. (more…)
Last week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. moved things along quite nicely, proving that the show isn’t completely imploding and beyond repair. Skye was learning more about her super powers and her family. Raina was discovered to be a potential ace-in-the-hole, thanks to some nice-guyness from Gordon. May, Simmons and S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 were looking into a potential super-team plan being put together by Coulson. And Fitz finally managed to crack Fury’s toolbox, though he seems to have gotten himself into a bit of a jam with regards to the S.H.I.E.L.D. #2 folks that have been following him. So what’s in store this week? Read on for all the spoilery details. (more…)
When Marvel unveiled their plans for Phase 3 of their Cinematic Universe, they knew what they were doing. In fact, ever since the House of Ideas started making their own movies, they have either had a game plan in mind or have done a hell of a job faking it. Phase 3 will be the true test of the power of Marvel, as most of the films involved will feature characters that are new to the MCU, and the fact that millions of people who have never heard of the new characters are chomping at the bit for the release of those movies truly bodes well for the movie house. Well, two pieces of information (one confirmed, one rumored) have surfaced that may make you love Marvel even harder, if that’s possible. (more…)
‘Agents of Shield’ Spin-Off Mystery Revealed – And Is Ms Marvel (Kamala Khan) Getting Her Own Series As Well?
Just a few days ago, it was put out there (to the interwebz) that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD would be getting a spin-off. With nothing officially announced at that time, it left fans to ponder what characters or stories from the world of SHIELD would be branching out – Inhumans, Agents of SWORD perhaps? Well, now, we have word that the proposed spin-off is a set to show some more familiar characters, with Mockingbird and Hunter being at the center of it. Deadline Hollywood reports that Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood are finalizing deals for the new show. (more…)
I’ll admit I was a little slow at realizing that the timelines of Netflix’s Daredevil series and the Avengers movies overlap. While watching Daredevil, Matt Murdoch would keep saying how real estate was so cheap in Hell’s Kitchen nowadays and I finally got that “Aha!” moment of “Oh yeah!!” Using the words of Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, the last time The Avengers were in New York City, they “…kinda broke it.”
More than just dropping casual references, however, rumors have started circulating that the Defenders – the all-star team featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron First – may just take things up a notch and make an appearance in the 3rd Avengers movie. (more…)
While there’s no Captain Marvel Easter Egg or Cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron, there is some news on the Captain Marvel movie front. Marvel has narrowed their choices on who will be writing the Captain Marvel script to two: Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside-Out). The thing is, it’s not a choice between the two, Marvel wants them both. (more…)
If you are anything like the rest of the world, you probably spent much of your weekend binge watching the newest Netflix series, Marvel’s Daredevil. If you spent your weekend becoming one with the couch as you observed Matt Murdock dispensing his brutal brand of justice, you can definitely consider it time well spent. The series, while much darker and bloodier than its MCU siblings, displays the type of storytelling that has made Marvel Studios a force to be reckoned with. The seamlessly woven story isn’t the only thing that the new series has in common with its brethren – As with every Marvel property, be it on the small screen or the big, the creators had some fun by dropping some Easter eggs for some of the more eagle-eyed viewers. Ready for an Easter egg hunt? Warning – minor spoilers ahead. Nothing too revealing but, still, you are warned. (more…)
