The Avengers

In August it was announced that filming on The Avengers: Age of Ultron had officially wrapped production and was consequently going into post-production. Subsequently, everyone went bat-shit crazy (11,000,000 people viewed the trailer in the space of seventeen hours) after viewing the fantastically, haunting two-minute teaser trailer which – in what was a touch of genius – had James Spader‘s Ultron eerily speaking alongside the song  “I’ve Got Know Strings To Hold Me Down,” ending with the lines: “I had stings, but now I’m free …there are no strings, on me.” However, now it seems there is still some work left to do come the beginning of the New Year.

‘Thor’ Co-Writer Promises There Will Be Blood in ‘Ragnarok’

When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

Avengers: Age of Ultron is about all we’ve been able to talk about the last couple of weeks thanks to that awesome new trailer, with the exception of that brief break where Marvel Studios announced Phase 3. Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon‘s probably been pretty busy at the moment getting the movie ready for its release next summer, but even he’s not unaffected by current events, and he has some thoughts on all the recent leaks, news and considerations about all the latest Age of Ultron and Marvel Cinematic Universe news. In a new interview, Whedon discuss the sudden revelation that a couple Thor actors are appearing in AoU, his thoughts on the announcement of the Phase 3 slate, and other Marvel issues that have come up in the news.

It’s clear that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to cover a lot of ground in the Marvel Universe, literally and figuratively. Shots from the trailer seem to indicate there will be scenes in New York City, scenes in Europe, and flashbacks with a pre-Cap-sicle Steve Rogers. Ultron will be in the movie, along with probably Baron Von Strucker and possibly (and it seems really likely) Andy Serkis as Ulysses S. Klaw. How much more could you fit in one flick? Well according to actor Idris Elba who played Heimdall in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, at least just a little bit more. (more…)

2005’s King Kong was brilliant on many levels.  Director Peter Jackson was able to create a world that seemed realistic and beautiful while giving audiences a near perfect monster to rally behind.  Considering the success of the movie, both financially and critically, it was surprising to many that a sequel wasn’t immediately greenlit.  Nine years have passed since Jackson’s new vision of the beast with a huge heart but Legendary Pictures is hoping that audiences will still flock to theaters to see what’s in store for them with the recently announced movie, Skull Island.  Months have passed since the announcement of the movie brought on thunderous applause at San Diego Comic-Con but it looks like things are beginning to move swiftly now.  Thanks to a press release from Legendary, audiences can now begin to get excited for the project with the announcement that Tom Hiddleston will be joining the movie, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer).

There are train wreck celebrities, and then there are celebrities who get it. Chris Pratt is certainly positioning himself to be one of those celebrities who get it. Those that handle their fame and their interactions with fans in such a way that only make us love them more. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that Robert Downey Jr. is conducting some secret Marvel Celebrities Camp. Pratt recently exhibited this lovable celebrity trend when he surprised a theater full of kids at a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for Variety, the Children’s Charity of New York, and Children of Promise. It must have been a magical evening for those kids. (more…)

And no, I don’t mean Thor the film (though it was for that movie), I’m talking about Thor the character. Yes, before Tom Hiddleston was considered for the role of the trickster god, Loki, he auditioned for the god of thunder himself. His original screen test will be a bonus feature on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of Thor: The Dark World, coming February 25th, but you can get a tease of it in GIF form below. (more…)
