Even before Marvel or Disney could release an official announcement, the British Board of Film Classification, that’s the British version of the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) Film Rating System, has gone ahead and posted the entire list of special features in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World DVD/Blu-ray.

Disney has finally released an official production still for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. Of course that featured image above is not the new still, we’re not giving that out without at least a click through to view the entire post, but it’s well worth it. (more…)
Director James Gunn and Starlord Chris Pratt have a couple of things to say about their upcoming Marvel-Cinematic-Universe-Movie Guardians of the Galaxy. (more…)
Thor: The Dark World is visually epic and full of battles and world saving shenanigans, but the Asgardian demi-God’s second solo outing lacks the heart and punch of its predecessor. Simply put, you may walk out of this with a smile on your face, but you’re likely to forget why by the time you get to the car.
While it has been officially confirmed that the events of Thor: The Dark World will have ramifications in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show, it’s yet to be announced what other Marvel movies, if any, will have an effect on the show. Could Captain America‘s next outing bolster the tail end of the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? (more…)
It’s no secret that superhero movies are hot nowadays, and with The Avengers opening the doors to superhero team-up movies and crafting a superbly interconnected universe, they may just be more popular than ever. A lot of people are calling for other members of the super group to join in, but due to those properties being licensed out to other studios, the thought of an Avengers movie with other popular superheroes, like Spider-Man and Wolverine, have seemed like something we’d only see in our dreams. According to Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige, however, we shouldn’t count it as an impossibility just yet. (more…)

While doing the publicity rounds for Ender’s Game, Ben Kingsley hinted at an upcoming super secret Marvel project. What could this mysterious project be? (more…)
Considering that Joss Whedon is hip deep in everything Marvel – from directing Avengers: Age of Ultron, to producing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., to consulting on the new Thor and Captain America movies – it should come as little surprise that the filmmaker is, perhaps, looking to make something a little more personal in the future. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Whedon talked about his creative yearnings and why it’s important for Hollywood, and imagination in general, to go back to the drawing board and tell new stories as opposed to remaking the same old, same old.
“There’s probably a dozen [properties I’ve always wanted to do]. It’s very important I don’t do that. It’s very important that we start creating new content again. We can only build on nostalgia so much before we have nothing left to build on. Before we’re rebooting Spider-Man—again. It’s dangerous to the culture, and it’s boring to me. I squeezed in between my Avengers movies a 400-year-old play. So I really need to create some new worlds.”
Yes please. What is arguably Whedon’s greatest work, and you can decide for yourself whether that’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Firefly, come straight from his own brain. So Whedon’s got a hankering to make his own stuff again, but what if someone were to offer him something tantalizing, like a movie about Boba Fett?
“I can’t say for sure, because that’s a tasty morsel. But right now my heart doesn’t go that way.”
But if there was one pre-established property that would entice Whedon’s creative instincts, it would be another 400-year-old play, an adaptation of the Bard’s tragic-classic Hamlet.
“That’s a giant endeavor, and I’m not planning any giant endeavors. I feel like some of the family stuff in [Hamlet] is even more twisted than we give it credit for. [My version] is no darker than any other vision, in certain respects. If everything works out according to plan, S.H.I.E.L.D. will be on when the movie is over and then I’ll already be too busy.”
I think so far as fans are concerned, a busy Whedon makes for some very happy fans.

Joss Whedon has been on a roll as of late, and is on his way to becoming the unofficial king of nerds. With his box office smash, The Avengers, and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere breaking ratings records, it seems that he can do no wrong… but he would disagree with you. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he talks about The Avengers not being a “great” film, and how he thinks he can make the sequel better, among other things.
