One might think that the powers that be over at Marvel would have been as bummed out as the Avengers in the picture above when their big Avengers: Age of Ultron marketing crossover plan for this Tuesday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode blew up in their faces. Nobody expected the trailer to be leaked almost an entire week early. At best we were hoping for a leak on Tuesday morning, wink-wink, say no more. We discussed what they might do in the trailer leak aftermath yesterday and it looks like we were right! (more…)

Edward Norton Is Singing A Different Tune About Why He Left The Marvel Universe

- 10-23-14Film Posted by Aspry Jones

HULK 1

I didn’t like director Ang Lee’s ‘Hulk’ because it was boring and the title character should’ve never grown substantially in size the angrier it got. That was just one of many Lee mistakes, though star Eric Bana was fine as Bruce Banner. I was, however, thrilled to see Marvel take back the rights and create a better movie with Edward Norton. That’s not saying much because it still wasn’t great. Just better. But bad blood seemed to boil within the comic camp and issues concerning creativity between star and studio hit the news. Ugly words were said, Norton and Marvel would disastrously part ways. With Oscar buzz about his recent performance in ‘Birdman,’ Norton’s doing interviews and giving a very whitewashed version of why he let the MCU ship sail without him. (more…)

If you watched last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode A Hen in the Wolf House then you saw Adrianne Palicki, Agent Bobbi Morse aka the Mockingbird let loose with those batons and kick Hydra butt all over the place. Of course she was dressed in her Head of Hydra Security uniform pictured above. We wouldn’t expect her to continue to wear that outfit once her cover is blown now would we? (more…)

When Robert Downey Jr. Asks For A Vowel… You Damn Well Give That Man an ‘Avengers’ “A”

- 10-20-14Uncategorized Posted by Mark Poynter

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…)

No New X-Men Characters?!? Aw, Say It Ain’t So, Marvel!

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.

Are We Gonna Lose Some Of Our Favorite Heroes For ‘Avengers 3?’

- 10-06-14Film, WTF? Posted by Aspry Jones

USE THIS FIRST

Bad Ass Digest dropped a couple bombs about the future of the Avengers movie franchise. It’s all speculation and we should take it with a grain of salt, but at least it’s worth thinking about. It all boils down to contracts, phases and long-term goals. Luckily these are three things that Marvel Entertainment are masters at manipulating. First, contract limitations kind of prohibit A3 from being split up into two films as previously rumored. Second, this movie is the springboard for Marvel’s famously talked about Phase 3. And third, it’s possible that Thanos won’t be done with our happy heroes by the end of that film. And it all has to do with saying a temporary goodbye to some of our favorite players. Possible SPOILERS ahead. (more…)

Forget DC! Aubrey Plaza Wants To Play A Marvel Superhero Now

- 10-06-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones

AUBREY ONE
Aubrey Plaza’s web images put me in the mind of that ‘Quirky Girls’ skit from SNL. There’s also a lot of sexy pics too, and I thank her for that. After about ten minutes of searching, it became obvious to me that I need to start watching ‘Parks And Recreation.’ It seems upon seeing the movie superhero success of her co-star Chris Pratt, she decided earlier this year she’d like to play Catwoman, saying to Total Film, “I just think it’s the ultimate female role. You get to be a woman, but you also (can) destroy people, and you use all your female energy for evil.” I never pictured Catwoman as “evil” but party on. Not sure if that backhanded pitch went anywhere, but she’s at it again. However, she’s set her sights on a much stronger target this time. (more…)

Marvel fans all over the globe cheered when it was announced that the screen rights to Daredevil were back in Marvel’s capable hands.  Those cheers were nothing compared to those that were inspired by the news that the Man Without Fear would be starring in his own Netflix series.  Now that production has been underway for quite some time, Marvel is finally ready to let the rest of us know what the new logo for the series will look like.
