Set Photos

It’s less than a month now till Captain America: Civil War comes to a theater near you. That’s all very exciting, of course, but come on, let’s start getting those Doctor Strange teasers! We know that the Sorcerer Supreme is coming to theaters this November, but aside from a few spy pics from set and a couple of official images released by Marvel Studios earlier this year, we’ve got nothing! So when Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor show up on the streets of New York City, in costume, you’re going to make some news. (more…)


Arrow has earned the love and admiration of comic book fans for its thrilling weekly adventures of the Emerald Archer, and the way it’s captured the spirit of the comic book Green Arrow on the CW TV series. But fans don’t love all aspects of the show universally, and more often than not, Katie Cassidy‘s character, Oliver Queen’s ex-girlfriend Laurel Lance, has been something of a lightning rod. Hate her, or feel indifferently about her, from the start of the show, we’ve known Laurel has a destiny to join her ex’s war on crime in Starling City, and this season’s been making a move toward that in earnest. Apparently though, destiny is coming sooner than we think because below you can see Cassidy, for the first time, in full Black Canary gear. (more…)


It’s summer, isn’t it? Means it’s time for the cast of AMC‘s The Walking Dead to suffer through the grueling filming of Season 4 in HOT-lanta. And recently, a few on set snapshots are makinf us all a little concerned for the survivors’ leader, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

Now, comic book readers know exactly what happens to Rick, but if you’re also an avid watcher of the TV series you know they’ve done their best to stay away from the continuity of the comics, keeping all fans on their toes about what’s coming next. But having read the comics, you might be thinking what I’m thinking when you look at these set pics.

Due to potential spoilage, you’ll find the photos in question below the cut.



As everybody was already aware, Jennifer Lawrence will be reprising her role from X-Men: First Class as Raven Darkholme, AKA Mystique (the only character in comic book history whose birth name is cooler than their “super” alias) in the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Below, we see Miss Lawrence on set in full Mystique regalia. To be honest, her portrayal of the shapeshifting mutant was one of the few things about First Class that I didn’t care for (that, and January Jones totally phoning it in as Emma Frost).

However, I’m liking her look in this film better somehow…I couldn’t tell you WHAT about her character design in DOFP is superior, but I like it a lot, and I have high hopes for both the character and the film.

Lawrence is joined in some of these photos by a woman who looks like the 1970s incarnate. Fans speculate that this could be Misty Knight, though if you’re not big into the X-Men comics, the first names that pop in your head will likely be either Foxy Cleopatra or Pam Grier, depending on your age:



Another day, another collection of photos snapped on set for X-Men: Days of Future Past. These ones, surprisingly, were’t shared by director Bryan Singer, and maybe because this is the kind of shooting he’d like to keep under wraps. The gallery below gathers photos featuring a fight scene between Nicholas Hoult, in full-on Beast mode, and Michael Fassbender‘s Magneto. Clearly, there’s still some bad blood between the two. Possibly due to Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) – she makes a brief appearance here – dumping potential-boyfriend Beast for a chance at something with Magneto? It would sure add a personal beef to their fisticuffs.



While Captain America: The Winter Soldier is filming in Cleveland, Ohio, we’ve got some set pictures and video clips for y’all. You’ll catch a few peeks of Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson, their stunt doubles, a flipped bus, a car on fire… y’know, the usual.

Hit the jump to see the goods. Or, well, you know what I mean; we’ve already seen “the goods.” (*cough*ScarlettJohanssonpictures*cough*).



Here it is: Ironclad PROOF that there is nothing too inconsequential for the nerd media to report on when it concerns a highly anticipated movie.

If you’re hoping to see shots of the new design for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, or watch the Big G in action–you’re SOL.

IF, however, you like pics of abandoned villages and the USS Alameda, get ready for a treat!

This is the downside of having an almost entirely computer generated star: Set photos are gonna mostly look like this:












The newest iteration of Godzilla is due for release May 16, 2014….and will no doubt at least be more interesting than these photos 😉


Xmen days of future past

What did X-Men fans do before Twitter? And who needs internet spies when you have Bryan Singer, the director himself, sending out regular tweets of photos and updates about Days of Future Past?

To wit, a pair of telling new photos were recently tweeted by Singer from the set of Days, one of them doesn’t spoil much, but shows a returning cast member in full (lack of) costume, and the other may tip off the observer as to what role a new cast member may play in the drama. So does it? Well, we’ll let you be the judge.

First the obvious thing:

First look: #JenniferLawrence as a vengeful #Mystique. #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast

Yes fans, its the image of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique that way we’ve all wanted to see her…


Next up, we have Singer conferring with Peter Dinklage between takes on set. The set looks like the a private plane, and Dinklage looks like he’s ready to sail out with the tune fleet. And what’s the deal with that mustache? Let’s have a look:


The folks at Blastr seem to think that this is confirmation that Dinklage is playing Boliver Trask, inventor of the Sentinels. Did he have a mustache? Does it even matter? And why haven’t you scrolled back up to blue naked Jennifer Lawrence again?

More news as it develops.

A new video and pics have come to us today of The Killing star Joel Kinnaman as Officer Alex Murphy in the upcoming Robocop remake. This is the best look we’ve had yet of the new Robocop on set in Vancouver:










article-0-19BFF559000005DC-386_634x711Along with Kinnaman in the title role, Robocop stars Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay  Baruchel and Abbie Cornish. It’s due in theatres February 2014.



These aren’t our first photos from the set of Thor: The Dark World, but they offer our first look at Malekith the Accursed and his army of Dark Elves. That’s former Doctor, Christopher Eccelston under all that armor and two-toned face makeup. I can barely recognize him! Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is here too, wearing his full Asgardian armor and looking a little worse for wear. I’m guessing it’s been a tough day introducing Elves to the business end of Mjolnir.

Check out a few of the shots here in our gallery, and see more at Splash News courtesy of photographer Paul Hennessy.

What do you think of Malekith and his Elves? I must admit they look a little silly, but they’re not really meant to be seen in such harsh daylight without any CGI, I’m sure. In fact it looks like Eccelston has a couple black dots on his face which is commonly seen on actors who will require some post, CGI work. Wonder what they’ll be adding in digitally?

Are you guys pleased with what you’re seeing here?

Thor: The Dark World releases November 8, 2013.
