I don’t think it’s overstating things to suggest that Samuel L. Jackson has been as an essential part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Robert Downey Jr. Sure, he showed up for like 20 seconds at the end of Iron Man to tease the broader world the Marvel films were going to develop, and something called “The Avengers Initiative,” but it immediately got fans excited and it made regular audience members say, “What do you mean I have to stay till after the credits?” With appearances since in at least five other Marvel films and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, the question then must be asked, how many films does Jackson have left on his contract? And he answers… (more…)
There’s a lot of anticipation out there for Wreck-It Ralph, not just because of lofty comparisons to Toy Story and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? but because it might be the best video game movie since The Wizard. (That may be a joke depending on your nostalgia factor.)
But there’s some new info floating about the internet today, and it just may give away a lot of the secrets, or potential secrets, of the film. Like what other video game characters might be popping up.

In other news, director Rick Moore was interviewed by Collider and in the 10-minute plus interview he hints at Easter eggs, who he could get (Tron and Pac-Man) and who he couldn’t get in terms of video game cameos, and, in what maybe the biggest news of all, whether or not any Marvel characters pop up in the film.

It seems that the Q-Bert gang has seen better days in these preview images from Disney’s new film Wreck-It Ralph. The full trailer is supposed to be released tomorrow, but to tide you all over, check out these first images from the film below, including some blink and you’ll miss them cameos from games past and present.
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers”) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, “30 Rock”), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.
On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
Wreck-It Ralph hits theaters on November 2.
