It was almost a year ago when Marvel Studios first announced that Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson would portray the titular Air Force officer turned superheroine in Captain Marvel. The hire represented the final piece of major casting for Marvel’s third phase, so perhaps it’s fitting that when Captain Marvel hits theatres everywhere, Carol Danvers will be joined on screen by a character that’s been around since the very beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Making the rounds at the Hollywood rumour mill this week: Samuel L. Jackson will be joining Larson in her Marvel solo debut.  (more…)

It’s been 17 years since M. Night Shyamalan‘s Unbreakable quietly began building a cult following. The under the radar superhero movie is a classic look at the origins of both the hero and the villain with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson delivering stellar performances as David Dunn and Elijah Price/Mr. Glass. Shyamalan did it again with James McAvoy in Split which connects with Unbreakable… opps… spoiler warning. You can check out Shyamalan’s twitter announcement below. (more…)

Holy Hellicarrier! It looks like Captain America and Nick Fury will face off over Super Bowl LI. Super-Falcons-Fan Samuel L. Jackson popped champagne last night when the Falcons won the NFC Championship game in a decisive 44 to 21 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. That means Fury vs Psylocke (Olivia Munn) leads us to Captain America (Chris Evans) vs Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Super Bowl LI. Check out the tweets below. (more…)

The second trailer for Kong: Skull Island has hit the Internet and it’s action packed and delivers a big wallop as John Goodman proves that monsters do exist. The cast is slammed packed with fan favorites including Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, and John C Riley in a role that he seems born to play. If you thought you were done with childhood giant monster movies, you were mistaken. (more…)

Samuel L. Jackson is having none of your Mace Windu is Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Supreme Leader Snoke fan theories. Jackson has his own theory that Windu wasn’t killed by Palpatine and survived that long fall (and losing his hand) because Anakin had the same things happen to him as well as other Jedi and they lived. Jackson makes a good case and fans would go crazy to see Windu return to the big screen, or to the animated side on Star Wars Rebels. Lucasfilm and Disney should make that happen. Until then, check out Jackson’s Mace Windu thoughts in the video below. (more…)

A lot of Spider-Man movies have been released in the past fifteen years. Andrew Garfield’s incarnation of the web-slinger launched just four years after Tobey Maguire hung up the cobwebbed cowl. Instead of finishing The Amazing Spider-Man series, the iconic character has instead swung into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with yet another reboot now due for 2017. While it’s easy to see why some fans would be reluctant to get excited about another retelling of the same story so soon, a lot of the criticism already levelled at Spiderman: Homecoming has nothing to do with the potential lack of originality.

It looks like Samuel L. Jackson is tired of those Muther@#$%ing dragons on HBO‘s hit show Game of Thrones. It’s not that he doesn’t like the dragons, but thinks there is so much else going on in the series that you should know about. He is ready to tell you all about it in that Samuel L. Jackson NSFW style we’ve all become accustomed to. So check out the video below, but first make sure your boss or cubicle co-workers can’t hear and then send the link for this post to that friend you’ve been trying to get hooked on Game of Thrones.

There’s the old axiom in drama that says if you don’t see the body, the person in question is not really dead. There’s an unspoken addendum to that rule though: if you see the body lose a hand and then be tossed out out 1,324th story window by Force lightning, it’s okay to assume its dead even if you don’t ever put eyes on a cadaver. But someone is making a case for the former, at least so far as Mace Windu, the Jedi master from the Star Wars prequels is concerned. Samuel L. Jackson wants you to know he’s ready and willing to return to the role, as soon as one *minor* problem is resolved. (more…)

Captain America: Civil War had so many characters but three keep people had to sit on the bench for the battle between dueling Avengers: the Hulk, Thor and Nick Fury. Of course we know that Mark Ruffalo will team-up with Chris Hemsworth in the forthcoming Thor: Ragnarok, but what about Samuel L. Jackson? He’s been the glue that brings all these movies together appearing in all the Phase One Marvel Studios films, up to and including The Avengers, but his absence was, perhaps, the most conspicuous in Civil War. So why skip the one-eyed king of S.H.I.E.L.D.? The answer, according to the screenwriters, has many facets. (more…)

While out promoting his latest Quentin Tarantino-directed flick, The Hateful Eight, Samuel L. Jackson was asked whether he’d seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and what he thought of the movie (he has seen it, for the record). Not one to often mince his words, Jackson tried his best to be diplomatic. At first anyhow. Then he said what he thinks, just as you’d expect and want him to. (more…)
