Avengers Re-Assemble! Roster Changes In ‘Age Of Ultron?’

- 08-28-14Comics, Film Posted by Aspry Jones



The very spoiler-y folks at Badass Digest seem to have gotten their hands on a script for ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron.’ It concerns a possible movie roster change of the famous superhero group. In the comics, this was something the Avengers did pretty routinely. Makes sense that they’d address it in the films. This is an exciting concept that’s bound to ruffle some feathers. And something this big wasn’t thought up all willy nilly. It’s one of those grand plans Marvel bigwig Kevin Feige spoke of awhile back. Here’s the thing – if this info stays as part of the plan, who on the team stays and who goes? I have some ideas and I’m going to speculate about them. But Badass Digest says there’s one hero who’s a lock. And it’s someone we have yet to see on screen. Let the SPOILERS fly! (more…)

Latest ‘SW7′ Rumors Could Reveal New Villains and Old Heroes

Let’s get one thing absolutely clear:

Far as I’m concerned, ANY information regarding new Star Wars films that did not originate with a source directly connected to Disney or Lucasfilm will be treated as rumor until confirmed. That doesn’t mean leaked bits of news that pop up here and there are not necessarily accurate–only that info which cannot be traced to a reliable source should not be treated as fact.

That being said, the folks over at Latino Review have got a couple of doozies for us today. Follow me after the jump for what the Episode VII rumor mill is currently churning out:  (more…)

Source Says Wright Walked from ‘Ant-Man’ Because of Product Placement too

- 06-10-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


As the dust settles from the great Ant-Man scandal of ’14, there’s still odd bits of news coming in as to why director Edgar Wright left in the first place. It’s more or less canonical that Wright walked away after Marvel tried to hand him a script a script that was more user friendly for Marvel’s shared universe idea, but one source says there’s more to it than that. In an effort to beef up their coffers, he says, Disney was pushing for some degree of product placement in Ant-Man. That, combined with the script issues, made Wright run for the door. (more…)

Matt Damon Says He’s ‘Open’ to Coming Back as Jason Bourne

- 05-06-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight


There are two different classes of Jason Bourne movies: the Paul Greengrass-directed action classics (SupremacyUltimatum) and the “Other Two” (IdentityLegacy). It really isn’t that Doug Liman’s The Bourne Identity is bad, it’s just that Greengrass helped usher in a new style of chaotically shot and cut actions films with his as-hated-as-it-is-loved “shaky-cam” style (Legacy, on the other hand, is undeniably terrible). However, the one constant that runs through the quality Bourne films is Matt Damon, whose performance as the memory-wiped super assassin proved that he could shake his seemingly typecast “nice guy” persona and mold a character that, for the time, felt distinctly outside of his comfort zone.

In what seems to be a continued disregard for the mental well-being of Jeremy Renner (whose turn as faux-Bourne in the still financially successful Bourne Legacy is merely passable at best), Matt Damon has now said he’d be “open” to reprising the role. Only he has a few stipulations for the studio in order to get him back in the super spy saddle.

On The Star Wars Casting Rumors

- 05-03-14Featured, Film Posted by Randy Geren


One year, I knew exactly which toys I was getting for Christmas before hand. It was the worst Christmas ever, and I’ve had subsequent Christmases with a desk tree and a $20 spending limit.

People have no patience so the wrapping paper has to be torn and examined and we have to shake all of the presents.
We anticipated the reveal of the Star Wars Episode VII cast into something like Christmas Day and then we wrecked it with our gnawing curiosity.

“Is it here?”

“How much longer?”


But in the end, every rumor felt like a peek in the closet and an attempt to decipher what each present was before it was time, so while I smiled when I saw Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill sitting in that room, thinking to myself that this is special and that it now it feels real, I also realized that it feels less special than it should have and now I’m trying to remember who this constantly repeated cycle helps in the long run.

New ‘Star Wars’ Rumors Suggest Possible Return to Tatooine?

- 04-02-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight


As Biggie once rapped: “I’m going, going, back, back to Tati, Tati…”

OK, so that joke didn’t entirely work (or work at all), but new rumors swirling about JJ Abrams’ choices for location shooting on the new Star Wars suggest that we might be headed back to the home world of Luke Skywalker.

Ms Marvel to Fight Ultron Too in ‘Avengers 2′?

- 02-07-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


What a day for a ton of Avengers: Age of Ultron rumors. The latest, following today’s revelation that Paul Bettany had signed on to play The Vision, suggests that Ms. Marvel will also be joining the team in the upcoming sequel along with Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
