Saturday Night Live Plans 40th Anniversary Celebration

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Look at the current landscape of American comedy in TV and film, and you will see an institution that has been shaped, molded and influenced by one show more than any other, for 39 years.

Created by Lorne Michaels, and developed by Dick Ebersol (previously NBC’s Vice President of late-night programming) in 1975, Saturday Night Live is the late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show, that was designed to parody culture and politics with a repertory cast, celebrity guest hosts and a musical guest performance each week. It is one of the longest-running network TV shows in America, with a bulging trophy cabinet that includes 36 prime-time Emmys, 3 Writer’s Guild Association awards and a Peabody. In 2012, it »

How to Play... a superhero: Tips from Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bow down, mere mortals. Superheroes are among us once more. Captain America is already on screens battling the Winter Soldier. Spider-Man will soon be back to amaze us. Then two generations of X-Men unite in Days Of Future Past, while we'll be meeting the Guardians Of The Galaxy later this summer. And that's not to mention new outings in 2015 for the Avengers and Batman and Superman (together in the same movie!) in 2016.

It's astounding to think that, only two decades ago, all we had in terms of superhero blockbusters was a Batman franchise about to descend into Joel Schumacher-inspired camp. Today, the possibilities for Hollywood actors wanting to don cape and spandex are endless – but how best to approach the gig of playing a hero who is even more super than most A-listers already assume they are?

With a little input from those who have already saved the world, »

Tony Stark Flirting with Some Disney Princesses

18 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Robert Downey Jr. threw this fun piece of art up on Facebook earlier today. It features Tony Stark surrounded by the Disney princesses, and it came with the caption,

"Best part about a Disney deal…" 

Are you sure it's not the millions upon millions of dollars they pay you to be in their movies? Because that would be the best part about it for me!

The illustration was created by artist Ryan Adriandhy, and I'm sure Marvel and Disney fans will get a kick out of it. »

The Amazing Spider-Man producers rule out Avengers crossover until “we’ve run out of ideas”

18 April 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that Sony has laid out the future of its Spider-Man franchise with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man 4, Venom and The Sinister Six, and Marvel Studios having reportedly mapped out the Marvel Cinematic Universe until 2028, it’s the question that just won’t go away… will we see Andrew Garfield’s wall-crawler appearing alongside The Avengers?

Marvel Studios may have kept quiet on the issue, but we’ve heard several comments from the likes of Garfield, director Marc Webb and others affiliated with the Spidey franchise raising hopes that we may get to see the big Marvel crossover one day. However, according to producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach, it’s not going to happen until the Sony franchise has “run out of ideas”.

“I think I’m probably a little bit of the militant here,” Arad told IGN (via Cbm). “I think it will »

Chadwick Boseman Rumored To Play Black Panther In Avengers: Age of Ultron

16 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The latest bit of speculation to hit the internet regarding Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to us courtesy of Nerd Reactor, who thinks that 42 star Chadwick Boseman may be showing up as Black Panther in the film.

Black Panther is one of the most prominent minority superheroes and in the comic books, he is most often depicted as the ruler of the fictional African country, Wakanda. Nerd Reactor quotes a report from Devin Faraci of Badass Digest, who says that the plot of the new Avengers film will involve the titular villain Ultron building his armor out of the material vibranium (the same material that Captain America’s shield is made out of), which he gets from Wakanda. So presumably, that’s how Panther will tie in.

Frankly, it’s about time the Black Panther made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel movies, »

10 Comic Book Movie Performances So Boring It Actually Hurt

16 April 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Robert Downey Jr.. Heath Ledger. Tom Hiddleston. Patrick Stewart. Ben Kingsley. Tom Hardy. Ian McKellen. What do all these fine folk have in common? Why, they’ve all played insanely memorable and brilliant executed comic book characters in major film adaptations, of course. And memorable is the key word of the day, because what’s the point in agreeing to take on a comic book character if you aren’t going to inject your performance with a bit of oomph? Not to mention the fact that “comic book character” kind of implies a sense of heightened reality: bigger is better.

But tell that to the following actors, all who seemed to miss the memo about “having fun” when they agreed to play some of the most iconic and best loved comic book characters of all-time on the big screen, and somehow managed – instead – to have us yawning in the aisles. »

Elizabeth Olsen "Terrified" of Spilling Avengers: Age of Ultron Secrets, Slightly Intimidated by Cast

16 April 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Avengers is one of the most profitable films of all time, earning $1.5 billion since its April 2012 release. So when Elizabeth Olsen was cast as the Scarlet Witch in the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, she was understandably nervous about joining returning cast members Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. "With a situation like The Avengers where there's already an established franchise, you're the newbies. That's kind of intimidating," the actress tells Flaunt of joining the movie with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays her twin. "But I feel like I swing back and forth. I've been prepping this since January, at »

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role as The Vision

16 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Paul Bettany Confirms Vision Role In ‘Avengers 2′

14 April 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Bettany has been with the Marvel cinematic universe since the very beginning, taking on the role of Tony Stark’s AI butler J.A.R.V.I.S. However, it seems as though vocal work just isn’t enough, and although rumours have persisted for months regarding Bettany’s promotion to physicality in the form of The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there was never any real official confirmation. Now Paul Bettany has gone on record commenting on his role during a live performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Transcendence:

It’s very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give ma huge bag of cash and then I’d go home. »

Trailer Trashin’: Jon Favreau Gets Cooking in Chef

14 April 2014 9:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Happy Tax Day, dear readers! I hope a lot of you have gotten out and seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier by this point – because it’s totally awesome. And if you’re looking for something scarier at the theater right now, I recommend checking out the new horror movie Oculus. In the meantime, this week’s edition of Trailer Trashin’ steps away from the big summer movies and takes a look at the upcoming indie comedy Chef.

Premise: When Miami-born chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) tries and fails to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, he returns to Miami to fix up a food truck, which he names “El Jefe Cubanos,” and gets reacquainted with his ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara). He plans to drive across the country to take another crack at success in L.A.

My take: As I’ve admitted previously in this column, my biggest blind »

Paul Bettany Talks Vision in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, it was announced that the voice of Tony Stark's personal A.I. system J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers, Paul Bettany, would be taking on the role of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he talked a bit about the challenges of accepting the role. While he couldn't delve too deep into Vision's story or powers, he did hint that it is quite a change going from a voice actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to someone who is needed on set.

"Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me...It's very exciting for me, »

14 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last night the MTV Movie Awards aired hosted by the very funny Conan O'brien. While superhero movies were largely shut out of any wins or even nominations, people should be happy to know that Henry Cavill won the "Best Hero" award for his lead role in 2013's Man of Steel in which he played Clark Ket/Superman. Cavill beat out Robert Downey Jr. (for Iron Man 3), Chris Hemsworth (for Thor: The Dark World), and several others. Fans of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug should also be happy to learn that Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly took home the award for best fight scene.  Ultimately The Hunger Games: Catching Fire won the top prize of the night.

Paul Bettany on playing The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron

14 April 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve known for a while now that Joss Whedon will expand the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron, bringing in Godzilla duo Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as mutant ‘miracle’ twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, while Paul Bettany is also set to add to his voice work as Jarvis by bringing life to The Vision. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the British actor has spoken a little about his new role in the eagerly-anticipated sequel…

Superman Wins 'Best Hero' Award At The MTV Movie Awards

14 April 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

'Superman' defeats ' Iron Man' and 'Thor' to be ranked Best Hero by the general public.  Henry Cavill's Superman of Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' has been named the 'Best Hero' of the past year at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. While the MTV Movie Awards isn't exactly the Oscars... it is quite a win for Warners Bros and DC entertainment as it's a popularity contest where the winners are voted for by the general public. The results of this vote could help boost DC's confidence for the sequel to 'Man of Steel' as it's scheduled to face-off Superman's Marvel counterpart Captain America in 2016. Then again, Chris Evans wasn't nominated since CapAm 2 only just came out.  The other nominies were Robert Downey Jr. from 'Iron Man 3,' Chris Hemsworth from 'Thor: the Dark World,' Martin Freeman from 'The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug,' and Channing Tatum from 'White House Down. »

14 April 2014 1:09 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

After voicing a key character in four Marvel Studios movies to date, Paul Bettany is finally going to be appearing in one of them as well. The British star of Master and Commander: The Far Side of the WorldPriestLegion and the upcoming Transcendence plays the artificially intelligent companion known as J.A.R.V.I.S. to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in all three Iron Man films and The Avengers, but in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, he’s playing two characters.

Bettany was spotted two months ago leaving one of Marvel’s production offices where it was reported he underwent makeup and costume tests for the role of Vision – another Avengers character from the comics. It was a surprise bit of casting and something fans didn’t see coming after all of the new character buzz had been focused on newcomers Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet »
