Why Marvel Movies Will Only Get Better From Here‏

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on why Marvel movies will only get better from here….‏ 

After the massive success of comic book movies over the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about the superhero bubble bursting and that the trend will come to an end. For Marvel Studios, there’s also the issue that many of their lead actors contracts are coming to an end in the next few years. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. specifically may not have many more Marvel movies under their belt, with Robert’s age becoming a factor and Chris Evans seemingly wanting to kickstart the second leg of his career doing more meaningful intimate projects. But fear not. Not only do I think Marvel will be just fine without their core Avengers, but they might do even better. Creatively at least.

In response to the question of whether the comic book movie trend is sustainable, »

The History of J.J. Abrams Abandoned Superman Movie, 'Superman: Flyby'

29 August 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In some cobwebbed region of my brain I have probably stored the information that J.J. Abrams once wrote a screenplay for a Superman movie for Warner Bros. titled Superman: Flyby of which McG (as well as Brett Ratner) was originally attached to direct, but I had completely forgotten it until this following audio essay by Mr. Sunday Movies popped up online (via Slashfilm). Now the essay goes into detail about the various stages of the screenplay (which is available right here) and how the story was meant to be played out, including Kryptonian kung fu, the death and resurrection of Superman and an idea where Lex Luthor is also Kryptonian. I don't know much about Superman lore and don't really care, but the plot of this thing sounds horrible. Apparently Josh Schwartz ("The O.C.") was commissioned at one point to rewrite Abrams' script and Robert Downey Jr. was considered as »

Joaquin Phoenix In Final Talks To Play ‘Doctor Strange’

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rapidly expanding entity that evolves and deepens with each successive entry the mega-franchise receives. After two fantastic Marvel Studios productions earlier this year, fans and general moviegoers can rest assured that the on-going series will continue to thrive and flourish for many years to come. Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy successfully demonstrated (once again) that the studio can consistently produce original material, that stands out against the fierce competition.

With that in mind, audiences are frequently looking ahead to what Marvel have in store for us next year and beyond with their future ‘phase 3′ releases that are currently lined up. Doctor Strange is an adaptation that has been name-dropped several times in the past by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. However, it is only recently that the film has finally started showing signs of life after spending years as »

Jeremy Renner reveals Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.

Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?

“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”

This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would »

Jon Favreau’s Chef Returns to Theaters Friday, August 29

28 August 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Chef, the critically acclaimed hit film written by, directed by, produced by and starring Jon Favreau, will return to theaters nationwide on August 29.

Chef has taken in nearly $30 million at the box office and has earned high praise from audiences, critics and top celebrity chefs like Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain and Tom Colicchio. Chef was the opening night film at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival and was an official selection at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival where it took home the Audience Award. Chef was also the winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Newport Beach Film Festival.

Read Jim Batts review Here.

Lauded by critics when it hit theaters in May 2014, Scott Bowles of USA Today called Chef, “One of the most heartwarming of the year. You need not be a foodie to appreciate the film’s reverence for a good meal. More surprising than the great culinary scenes are the moments between father and son. »

Badass Digest reveals that, at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America (Chris Evans) will assemble a brand new team of Avengers for Phase Three. While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

The exact lineup of the new Avengers has not been finalized, and this scene was not shot during principal photography, which wrapped earlier this month. Marvel reportedly may pull Captain Marvel from this new lineup because they aren't sure if »

Downey Jr. Praises Marvel's "Guardians"

28 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There are many fans of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," one of them being "Iron Man" star himself Robert Downey Jr. who heaped praise upon the sci-fi film whilst doing press ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival. He tells The Toronto Sun:

"Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever. And it's odd for someone with - on occasion - an ego the size of mine to actually say that.

We're talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: 'Look!'

It's like you have a great quarterback, and his brother plays for another team, and then you say: 'Look, this is their second cousin and we think he has »

'Avengers 2': Jeremy Renner Responds to Hawkeye Rumors

28 August 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, Jeremy Renner revealed a potential spoiler for Avengers: Age of Ultron in a new interview with Larry King.

Larry King bluntly asked Jeremy Renner if his character Clint Barton, a.k.a. Hawkeye, dies in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here's what the actor had to say below.

"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."

There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.

This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Robert Downey Jr., the star of Marvel’s “Iron Man” series as well as “The Avengers,” said he thought that this summer’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is the best Marvel film to date.

28 August 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Robert Downey, Jr. admitted some hard truths this week in Toronto.

Despite having a very obvious loyalty to the Avengers – if you’re living under a rock: he’s Tony Stark in JonFavreau’s Iron Man and its sequels – the actor admitted that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the sci-fi opera with “a bunch of a-holes” is the best Marvel movie: “[Guardians of the] Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever - and it’s odd for someone with, on occasion, an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”

Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall Featured on New Poster for The Judge

28 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Warner Bros. have released a new poster for The Judge, the upcoming thriller and family drama which sees Iron Man and Avengers Assemble star Robert Downey Jr. as a successful defence attorney who ends up battling it out with Fargo’s Billy Bob Thornton (in the courtroom) after he reluctantly returns home for his mother’s funeral.

It’s then that he discovers that his estranged father (The Godfather’s Robert Duvall), the town’s judge who now suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder and is set to stand trial for the crime.

David Dobkin is directing the movie which marks the first project from Robert Downey Jr. and his wife/producing partner Susan Downey’s production company. The Judge is big departure for Dobkin compared to his previous work, and the recent trailer made it look a lot different to the likes of Fred Claus and Wedding Crashers! »
