The Marvel Cinematic Universe got a lot bigger this week, after the studio announced their full Phase Three slate through 2019, which will have a whopping nine movies. This phase will be properly set up by next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, the ending of which will alter the superhero team's lineup.
Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Tony Stark, spoke about how the events of Iron Man 3, where he removed the Arc reactor and destroyed all of his Iron Man suits, helps set up Avengers: Age of Ultron, in a new interview with Marvel.com.
"I thought that the third Iron Man was about [Tony] transcending his dependence on the merits of continuing to wear your wound. That was what [director] Shane [Black] and I thought was the real win, that he throws that thing that had become a dependency away. Because that was the question I was always asking, why doesn't »

Kevin Feige On the Timing Of This Announcement
"We wanted to do this at Comic-Con this year, and things were not set. »
One of the first things we saw as we stepped out of our bus on the Shepperton Studios lot outside of London was a golf cart carrying Captain America. Suffice it to say, spending a day with The Avengers is very strange. While I've attended set visits for many of the films that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I did not visit the set of "The Avengers." I've met each of the individual members of the team, many of them in costume as these characters, but there's something different about being on a set with all of them at once. Between now and the May release of "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," the mega-sequel to one of the biggest films of all time, we'll have a number of reports from the set, where I joined a large group of journalists to not only watch a key scene from the film being shot, »

Apparently, part of Ryan Gosling's daddy duties is to grow some manly facial hair. The new parent made his post-baby debut today when he returned to work on his film The Nice Guys in Atlanta, and we couldn't help but notice that 'stache on his face! Perhaps being a father has given him less time to groom his face? Or maybe his character in the movie calls for some upper lip fur? Or! Maybe Gosling is getting a head start on Movember?! Either way, it's Ryan Gosling and he looks perfect. The Shane Black-helmed flick is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a muscle-for-hire (Russell Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the »

Manuel here with some Streeptastic news.
Meryl Streep has just signed on to play Florence Foster Jenkins in an upcoming Stephen Frears film. Florence will follow the eponymous protagonist, a New York heiress whose lack of musical talent didn’t stop her from pursuing a career in opera in the early twentieth century. This should be good news for us Streep fans because it means we may get three back-to-back-to-back musically-centered Meryl films in a row. Remember she’s set to play Maria Callas for Mike Nichols’ HBO adaptation of Terence McNally’s Master Class while she’s currently filming Ricky and the Flash, the Diablo Cody-penned Jonathan Demme film about an aging rock-star. More thrillingly, the Frears/Demme/Nichols triple punch is the closest we’ve gotten in a while to Streep committing to working with top-tier directing talent (no offense to David Frankel, Philippa Lloyd and Philip Noyce »

In the mid-1980s, Belgian martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme arrived in America with dreams of stardom. Possessing a finely-honed physique, thanks to years of training in (among other things) karate, kickboxing and ballet, he was ambitious and brimming with self-belief.
The acting bug bit Van Damme while he was still in his teens: he played “a bad guy with all the knives” in the 1984 French gangster movie Rue Barbare and, determined to further his goal of becoming an actor, hopped on a plane to Los Angeles. His first few years in America were, however, tough. He slept in a rental car for two weeks, and made money money by teaching aerobics and martial arts, delivering pizzas, and working as a doorman at a restaurant belonging to Chuck Norris. »

Poor Jon Favreau. Not only did Shane Black usurp him from his role as Iron Man 3's director, but his character in the franchise, Happy Hogan, was also supposed to die during his confrontation with James Badge Dale.s Savin. And I thought Marvel was supposed to be Hollywood.s happy-go-lucky studio. Of course the reality is that Favreau actually decided to opt out of Iron Man 3 to try and get Magic Kingdom into production instead. But that still doesn.t forgive Marvel Studios for trying to take their revenge out on his beloved Iron Man character. According to Comic Book Movie Jon Favreau.s Happy Hogan, who was appointed as Stark Industries. overly vigilant head of securities for Iron Man 3, would have met his demise after following Savin to the Chinese theater in Los Angeles.
