Marvel wanted Spider-Man for Avengers: Infinity War as well as Captain America: Civil War

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Early in the Sony hack, it was revealed that Marvel Studios had tried to reach a deal with Sony to cameo in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, and now some new details have emerged via Twitter detailing how Marvel wanted to use Spidey in the storyline, as well as revealing that he would have featured in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

In an email conversation from November, it is revealed that Sony would have launched a new Spider-Man series following Civil War, which wouldn’t continue the plot from the Captain America sequel but would take place a world where the events had happened and superheroes are divided into two groups.

As for Civil War itself, it would have seen Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recruiting Spider-Man, who would have met the likes of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America (Chris Evans) before returning back home to Aunt May for his first solo movie. »

Hot Toys' Tony Stark with Arc Reactor Creation 1/6th Scale Set

12 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

After jumping in the water first and making such a big splash with the first Iron Man film, it seemed like Jon Favreau was forced to awkwardly tread the same same water in Iron Man 2 so as to not swim too far ahead of the origin films for Captain America and Thor, which were a solid year or more away. The stakes didn’t seem high enough, and all the groundwork being laid for the eventual Avengers team up just wasn’t as fun as it could have been. Even though Iron Man 2 had its missteps — pretty much everyone involved in the making of that film, including Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr., have acknowledged its flaws — it had some extraordinary set pieces and very iconic imagery. Who granted Mickey Rourke’s requests to do scenes in his underwear? Yeah, that was Favs. But who made a scene involving »

Netflix Run Brings U.K.’s ‘Black Mirror’ Into Light for U.S. Auds

13 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bizarre and unsettling British sci-fi series that no traditional American TV network wanted to touch, “Black Mirror” has vaulted into the cultural zeitgeist Stateside after Netflix bought exclusive U.S. streaming rights for the show, whose two seasons originally aired on the U.K.’s Channel 4.

Netflix’s Dec. 1 domestic debut of the anthology series generated a crackle of excitement on social media — and drew renewed attention in Hollywood circles. Robert Downey Jr. was onboard back in 2013, when his Team Downey production company acquired rights to make a film at Warner Bros. based on the show’s “The Entire History of You” episode.

“Loved ‘Black Mirror,’ ” Stephen King tweeted Dec. 7. “Terrifying, funny, intelligent. It’s like ‘The Twilight Zone,’ only rated R.”

In fact, the show was conceived as a techno-paranoid 21st-century spin on the Rod Serling classic, according to exec producer Annabel Jones. “Black Mirror” — the title »

Annie's not the same old song and dance for Jamie Foxx

16 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The way Jamie Foxx sees it; it doesn’t matter whether he’s starring in a blood-soaked thriller or a kid-friendly flick. A promising movie, whatever the genre, is appealing both to audiences and to Foxx himself.

No surprise then that he just repeated his role as a murder consultant in the raunchy comedy Horrible Bosses 2, plays a kind-spirited tycoon in this month’s family friendly reimagining of Annie, and is slated to star in an upcoming bio-pic about complicated boxing legend Mike Tyson.

“The world now opens it up for you to play in all these different areas, these different arenas,” he says over the phone from San Francisco. In other words, having success in one category of film isn’t the sort of barrier to variety that it used to be. “Look at Robert Downey Jr., Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale. These guys are all super-powered actors. They »

17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

THR has released an official list of the most viewed trailers of 2014. And you may be surprised to see which movie came in first. While a lot of your are probably guessing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was actually Fifty Shades of Grey that took top honors. While Star Wars: The Force Awakens had the best start of the year, grabbing 58.2 million views in its first five days of release, it was Fifty Shades of Grey that won the race with its four month head start. The trailer has been viewed 93 million times on Youtube since its July 24 release. Don't feel too bad for Star Wars 7, though, as it came in second place with 81 million Youtube views since its debut over Thanksgiving weekend.

4 Things That Might Surprise You About Avengers: Age of Ultron

17 December 2014 3:10 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Joss Whedon wasn't sure he wanted to direct Avengers: Age of Ultron. When we caught up with him on the London set of the film this Summer, he admitted making the original Avengers left him feeling "ragged," exhausted, and not 100 percent sure whether he could take on a second film about the superhero squad. "It did take a lot out of me," he said. "Going in this time, I just had to sort of recalibrate my entire existence and throw myself into it more wholeheartedly and say, 'Ok. I'm gonna just invest myself in every part of it - in every production meeting, every location scout, and every question about a prop that I'd like to avoid.' I'm gonna give myself up to it like a Christian to a lion." Whedon's obvious passion for the characters overrode any doubts he might have had about his second outing in the franchise's director's chair. »

Joss Whedon talks Avengers: Age of Ultron, introducing The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

17 December 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.

” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan.  The film also stars  Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L.

Joss Whedon on creating his beautiful monster for 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'

17 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shepperton Studios, Middlesex - Joss Whedon looked tired. And not just a little tired, either. He looked weary, deep down in his bones tired. He looked like he was ready to just fall down where he was and sleep for a week. I've seen a number of other directors in this state and it's always when they're near the end of production on one of these mega-movies. The pressure that's on these guys in enormous, and for Whedon, following up one of the biggest films of all time can't be easy. We sat in a small group facing Whedon in the Tony Stark lab, part of the Avengers Tower set, and asked him what his primary goal was walking into the sequel. "On the first one, I was a raggedy man when I made that film. It did take a lot out of me. Going in this time, I was like… »

Joss Whedon Talks 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Bigger' Sequels, and Scarlet Witch

17 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we saw Joss Whedon on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" this past summer, he looked like he had been beaten up by the movie's robotic bad guy. Bags drooped under each eye, he moved slowly, looked gaunt, and, while giving his answers the characteristically snappy Joss Whedon delivery, the way that countless characters of his have talked over the years in various TV shows and movies, this time it sounded more forced and battle-hardened. We were inside Avengers Tower, which had been mostly destroyed by Ultron (you can see bits of this in the trainer) and it looked like Whedon was part of that collateral damage.

But who could blame him? This was day 72 of the shoot, and there was at least another month of principle photography left to go. He was tired. And he was also under an incredible amount of pressure. Last time out, Whedon's »

'Captain America 3' Is Moving Forward Without Spider-Man

16 December 2014 3:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, emails from the Sony hack revealed that Marvel Studios was trying to obtain the rights to Spider-Man, so they could include the character in the highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Captain America: Civil War. Later that day, another report revealed that deal may still be on the table, and yet another report claimed that Marvel wants to reboot Spidey entirely, which would involve getting rid of current star Andrew Garfield. Today, a new report from Badass Digest reveals that Marvel is currently moving forward on Captain America: Civil War without the web-slinger, for now.

The site notes that there is also the possibility of a cameo or an end credits stinger, since we have nearly a year and a half to go before Captain America 3 hits theaters. Marvel always builds reshoots into their films' schedules, but as it stands right now, Peter Parker will not play a major »

Black Mirror: White Christmas review

16 December 2014 11:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Charlie Brooker’s terrific Black Mirror Christmas special with Jon Hamm & Rafe Spall tells three very human tales of tech paranoia…

This review contains spoilers.

Charlie Brooker’s been hiding something. Beneath that hugely entertaining mantle of misanthropy and idiocy-skewering invective, beats the charitable heart of a man who wants us all to care a little bit more. If there’s a lesson to White Christmas - a trio of Black Mirror stories about the consequences of loneliness and ostracisation - it would be to stop, think, and empathise.

White Christmas’ first story introduces us to Matt (Jon Hamm, whose matinee idol good looks cast him perfectly as the kind of swaggering, smug Yank an intensely British drama like Black Mirror would instantly mistrust). Alongside his day job, Matt runs a seedy side-line as a pickup artist coach and wank conductor to a voyeuristic choir of online pervs.

Taking Google Glass to its logical conclusion, »
