Marvel movies ranked from worst to best: Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy

18 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's hard to believe it now, but a decade ago the Marvel Cinematic Universe was merely a twinkle in Kevin Feige's eye. Today, McU offerings are blockbuster staples, with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more providing film fans with thundering entertainment and a connected universe culminating in the Avengers movies.

With Age of Ultron on the horizon, we've gone back through the 10 Marvel films to-date to rank them all from worst to best. Read on to find out our verdict, then join the discussion in the comments below.

10. Iron Man 2 (2010)

If Iron Man was a savvy exercise in kick-starting a shared cinematic universe, then its sequel brought everything crashing back down with a sharp, painful thud. Overstuffed with new characters, multiple plot strands and far-too-much in the way of Avengers set-up, Iron Man 2 is a step down from its predecessor in practically every way. »

Marvel Needs the Rights from Universal to Make Solo 'Hulk' Movie

14 April 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Ever since Mark Ruffalo stepped up to play the Hulk in The Avengers, and the character became a favorite among Marvel fans, there's been plenty of demand for another solo movie for the big guy. While there have been rumblings from Ruffalo and even Lou Ferrigno about another Hulk movie coming soon, there hasn't been any solid development on that front. There have been rumors of a lead-up to Planet Hulk, even involving Guardians of the Galaxy, but James Gunn has denied that plan adamantly. Well, now we know why there hasn't been progress on a solo adventure for the Hulk: Marvel doesn't have the rights. Yes, Marvel Studios has the right to use Hulk in The Avengers franchise, but Universal, who made the Edward Norton version with ties into the Marvel cinematic universe, still holds the rights for standalone Hulk movies. Ruffalo confirmed this fact (via Collider) while »

Why Marvel Studios Can’t Make a Hulk Stand-Alone Movie

14 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

For the last thirty years, no one seemed to give a shit about a movie adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. Universal made two attempts to bring the character to the big screen, once in 2003 with director Ang Lee and star Eric Bana and later in 2008 with director Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton. Both films […]

Mark Ruffalo explains Hulk's lack of a solo movie

14 April 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Ruffalo has explained why Marvel Studios is yet to announce a solo Hulk movie.

The Avengers star revealed that the company does not fully control the film rights to the character.

"As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet," Ruffalo told Collider.

"That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue. That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don't think that's insurmountable, by the way, but I don't know where it's going from here for me."

The actor made his debut as Bruce Banner in Joss Whedon's 2012 movie Avengers.

He made a cameo in Iron Man 3 and will shortly be seen in the role again in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Universal produced 2003's Hulk and was the distributor on the 2008 Edward Norton-starring The Incredible Hulk.

Avengers: Age of Ultron will arrive in »

The Big Reason We're Not Getting a Solo Hulk Movie Anytime Soon

14 April 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It looks like the task of creating a solo Hulk movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is more complicated than we realized. Edward Norton was the last to be featured in one of these films before Mark Ruffalo picked up the mantel. Marvelites have been dying to know why the House of M won't give the new Bruce Banner his own standalone outing, but according to Ruffalo, it.s out of Marvel's hands at the moment.  Ruffalo recently spoke with Collider and said that the real issue here is that Universal still owns the solo Hulk movies.  As far as a Hulk movie, a standalone Hulk movie, Marvel doesn't really have the rights to that yet. That's still Universal's property, so there's that issue. That's a big impediment to moving forward with that. Now I don.t think that's insurmountable, by the »

Marvel doesn't have the rights for a standalone Hulk movie yet

13 April 2015 10:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's a reason why Mark Ruffalo hasn't had a standalone Hulk movie yet - Marvel doesn't appear to have the rights...

Well this explains a few things. Back when Mark Ruffalo debuted his take on Bruce Banner/Hulk back in Joss Whedon's The Avengers, there was instant fan clamour for a new, standalone Hulk movie. Yet many Marvel movies have been announced since then, and not one of them is the Hulk project. Given that phase three of the Marvel cinematic universe has now been locked down until 2019, it's not unreasonable to assume that it'll be 2020 at the earliest before we get a Hulk feature.

So what's the hold-up? It's certainly not Mark Ruffalo. He's confirmed to Collider that he still has four movies on his Marvel contract, adding that "that could always go further". And he's long been on board the idea of a Hulk movie.

Of those four movies, »

Viggo Mortensen Was Offered Wolverine Role in X-Men

13 April 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We already know that Bryan Singer wanted Russell Crowe to play Wolverine in the first "X-Men" movie. Crowe turned down the role and recommended the lesser-known Hugh Jackman, who eventually won the role and has been playing the superhero ever since. But in a new interview, Viggo Mortensen revealed that he too was offered the part. "I was offered Wolverine for the first movie. I guess it would have been for the franchise then. That was before I got 'Lord of the Rings,'" he explained. "I remember going to the meeting with the director, Bryan Singer, with my son who was a total comic book expert. He was about 10 at the time. Henry came, and Bryan showed us all these models and storyboards, and Henry was instructing the director, saying, 'Oh, you're going to change this thing right here.'" Ultimately however, Mortensen had to reject the offer due to a scheduling conflict. »

A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in the Movies

13 April 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, »

'Planet Hulk' Still Possible Says Mark Ruffalo

11 April 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour is officially in full swing, which means we'll be hearing quite a bit from its team of heroes. Yesterday was the first domestic meeting of minds, and the biggest news to come out of the press conferences so far is Mark Ruffalo's claim that a standalone Hulk movie may happen. And as long rumored, it may include the green goliath going into space. Might we finally see the long rumored Planet Hulk become a reality? Or is Hulk teaming up with Star-Lord and pals for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as long teased on the internet?

To date, Mark Ruffalo's version of the Hulk has only been seen in Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The character did have one movie that is considered part of Phase One, with Edward Norton playing Bruce Banner in 2008's The Incredible Hulk. And »

Reboots, videogame adaptations, and a few long awaited sequels are all due for release next year

Now that Fast & Furious 7 has formally opened summer blockbuster season 2015 up, it's time for us to take our traditional look at the big movies gracing multiplexes this time next year.

2016 is set to be a pivotal summer, too. There are big movies in both the DC and Marvel cinematic universes. Warner Bros is looking to launch the first of six King Arthur movies, whilst Universal may get cracking with its classic monster cinematic universe. And - yep - we may even get the world's first great film based on a videogame.

Summer blockbuster season 2016 stretches from March through to August, and here's what treats are lined up. Please note, we've gone with Us release dates, for the purposes of this feature, as that's where most of the films will debut first.

Edward Norton Latest to Join Fight Against Fracking in Radio Ad (listen!)

7 April 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Edward Norton has become the latest celebrity to join a growing list of Hollywood A-Listers who are becoming increasingly active on political issues. He’s taken a stand against “fracking” in his home state in a new radio advertisement. Fracking is a process that uses water, sand and chemicals to blast oil out of rock and shale well under high pressure. Norton, 45, lends his voice to a radio advertisement on behalf of a consumer rights group known as “Food & Water Watch.” ...Read More »

The director of Pixar's short film 'Lava' on his emotional gem's Hawaiian origin

6 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When you see “Inside Out” in the theater this summer, the short film in front of it will be called “Lava,” and it is a labor of love for writer/director James Ford Murphy. If you want to know about the film itself, you should check out my reaction piece from the event, which I'll post on Wednesday, but before I left the Pixar campus, I sat down with Murphy to talk about his film, the inspiration behind it, and the odd effect it had on the animators who worked on it. When I walked into the room, he looked at my shirt, which read “Cassius Clay,” and immediately remarked on it. We talked about boxing and Ali specifically for a few before the publicist asked us to start. It put us in a great mood as the conversation opened.

Michael Keaton Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

This just in: There are still a few scenarios in which Batman cannot save the day.

And alas, this week’s installment of Saturday Night Live — hosted by erstwhile Caped Crusader and recent Oscar nominee for Birdman Michael Keaton — drove home the point in a sometimes deeply uncomfortable way.

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Michael Keaton and Carly Rae Jepsen

4 April 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Keaton has hosted “Saturday Night Live” twice before, but hasn’t hosted since 1992. It was a full decade between that and his original hosting gig. The man does not rush things when it comes to hanging out in Studio 8H. And while the iron may not be quite as hot on his career as it was during the recent Oscars season, that’s no reason not to have him host now. His off-kilter persona and unique energy are still perfect for the show, and there’s little reason to think there’s every chance for a great episode tonight. As always, I’ll be liveblogging each segment as they air. As always, a few of you will not understand that it’s Ok if my opinions don’t line up with yours. As always, most of you understand that and enjoy sharing your opinions along with mine in real time. »
