“Chewie, we’re back for Episode 3 of the Flickering Myth Movie Show.”

We’re also looking at the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Who is in the new line-up? How many more gems does Thanos need for his funky gauntlet? What can we now expect leading into Captain America: Civil War?

And if that wasn’t enough Marvel fun, our very own Luke Owen sits down with Daredevil star Charlie Cox to chat about the Avengers, who he’d like the Man Without Fear to team up with and what can we expect from the just-announced Season 2.

Are you ready for Part 2? More Gladiators of the '90s: Then and now

1 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.

We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.

But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:

1. Scorpio (Nikki Diamond)

Contenders were subjected to the mighty sting of the speedy Scorpio. Former bodybuilder and model Nikki Diamond was an original Gladiator, but was forced »

According to reports, a sequel to director Matthew Vaughn's R-rated $80 million budgeted comic book feature "Kingsman: The Secret Service", has been greenlit by Fox for a big budget sequel, following the original film's $400 million dollar world-wide box office gross:

Vaughn co-wrote the original screenplay with Jane Goldman and produced through his Marv Films banner.

"...the world's greatest secret agent is on the most exciting case of his career.

"What's the secret link between a series of kidnapped sci-fi stars, the murder of an entire town, and a dark secret from inside 'Mount Everest'?

"Under the supervision of 'Uncle Jack', the spy skills of 'Gary' blossom--

"...but when the duo learn what's behind the celebrity kidnappings. »

Mark Hamill's family visited him on the 1983 Star Wars set and the photos are adorable

29 April 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A long time ago, on a Star Wars set far, far away, Mark Hamill's family came to visit him - and the pictures are adorable.

Hamill revealed in an interview with the official Star Wars website that he recently found photos of himself, wife Marilou and son Nathan taken on the set of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi back in 1983.

Hamill is often pictured in costume as Luke Skywalker for shots with his then-baby son and beloved Star Wars characters like R2-D2 and Yoda.

The actor reveals during his chat that Nathan turned out to be the biggest Star Wars fan in his family, so this early trip was pivotal in the boy's interest in the franchise.

233 days until Star Wars: Mark Hamill's 'Return of the Jedi' family photos are amazing

29 April 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before Instagram and Twitter, celebrities had to settle for taking private photos of their antics on set. But now, over three decades after the fact, Star Wars fans are getting new insight into Mark Hamill’s time while filming “Return of the Jedi.” During the recent Star Wars Celebration, Hamill talked about unearthing photos taken while his wife Marilou and son Nathan visited him at work. Wonderful person that she is, Mrs. Hamill then sent the album to StarWars.com to share with the world. Most of the images are adorable family shots. This one with Yoda giving young Nathan some serious side-eye (as puppeteer Frank Oz hides behind Mark Hamill).   The whole family posed for a Sears Family Portrait with a group of Ewoks.   But perhaps the best photo of the bunch is of Hamill goofing off on the Emperor’s Throne. This is the stuff Au fanfic is made of! »

Before Jared Leto: 8 definitive portrayals of Batman's nemesis The Joker

29 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The world is abuzz this week with talk of Jared Leto's muscles and tattoos, all in aid of his role as The Joker in the Suicide Squad film.

Everyone has something to say about merits of having the word 'damaged' tattooed across his forehead (we think it's a bit on the nose - or just above at least).

Batman's arch foe, the Clown Prince of Crime, has been portrayed countless times in comics, film, animation and more. Here are some of our favourite versions of The Joker - in no particular order...

1. Heath Ledger

Everyone was sceptical when pretty boy Heath Ledger was cast in the role of the most iconic comic book villain in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight.

Obviously, our uncertainty was unfounded. Ledger's performance was the weirdest and most unsettling that we've seen on the screen - who can forget his »

Dedicated Star Wars fans send X-wing model into space for premiere tickets

28 April 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Now, this is dedication - two Star Wars fans have sent an X-wing model into space in an attempt to bag premiere tickets.

Matt Kingsnorth and his friend sent the model 36,190m (118,000ft) into space with the help of a weather balloon and a GoPro camera.

The duo want to catch the attention of director Jj Abrams, who they hope will give them a pair of tickets to the world premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It cost the Essex residents around £1,200 and six months of their time to pull off the stunt.

Another fan of the sci-fi film series recently made a working Bb-8 droid, after it was revealed that the robot was not a CGI creation.

Original Star Wars cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Warwick Davis return for The Force Awakens later this year.

25 underrated 1990s movie soundtracks

28 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Muppet Treasure Island to Speed, we take a look at the 90s soundtracks that deserve another listen...

Ah, the 1990s. The decade that brought us The Lion King. Titanic. Quentin Tarantino. That wordless bathroom scene in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks. Duel of the Fates from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. In the Mood for Love.

It was a good 10 years for film music, no doubt.

But scratch the surface of 1991 through 1999 and there are tons of good scores ready to spring a surprise on your ears. Some were attached to sorely underrated movies, others were overshadowed by wildly successful ones, and some have simply been forgotten in the passage of time.

Here, in no particular order, are the top 25 underappreciated film soundtracks from the 1990s.

1. Chaplin - John Barry

Okay, let's start with a big one. Richard Attenborough. Robert Downey Jr. John Barry. »
