The Evolution of Hercules in Pop Culture

25 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

This weekend marks Hercules’ return to the big screen. A staple in the hero canon, the half man, and half god has slayed lions, bedded mortal women, and even hung out with the Three Stooges. Over the past seven decades, the hero has transformed from an Italian Stallion of the 1950s to the Blockbuster Beefcake we see today thanks to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kellan Lutz taking on the title role. With the former’s film (Hercules directed by Brett Ratner) opening this weekend, we thought it was a good time to look at the evolution of Hercules on the big screen.

’50s: The Italian Stallion

A star of the “sword and scandal” genre, Hercules became a regular fixture in Italian cinema during the 1950s. These historical epics were seen as the country’s answer to successful big-budget Hollywood films, such as Spartacus and The Ten Commandments.

Hercules (2014) – The Review

24 July 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

For the last few years, Summertime has been super-hero time at the multiplexes. It seems ever other week another costumed character with incredible abilities is battling away for a big chunk of the box office pie. But what about the original amazing avenger? Sure the Man Of Steel was here last Summer and is gearing up for his return (when he’ll face off against another hero). Nope let’s go way, way back to the real original, that demigod Hercules. The superstar of Greek mythology has been a cinema staple since the late 1950′s when American Steve Reeves laced up his sandals in two surprise hits imported from Italy. Reeves was the first of many famed body-builders to portray him right through 1969 with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Hercules In New York and 1983 with TV’s Hulk Lou Ferrigno in a pair of low-budget epics from Cannon Films. The man of muscle also went animated, »

Kevin Feige Explains Why a Planet Hulk Movie Wouldn’t Work

24 July 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

There’s been some talk of a possible Hulk movie by Marvel in the future. Some fans have hoped that it would be an adaptation of "Planet Hulk". However, that probably will not happen. Marvel Studios head man Kevin Feige explains why the popular storyline is not in the cards.

After two unsuccessful film adaptations, the incredible Hulk finally made a come-back in the Avengers, stealing the show and proving that the green-skinned goliath has cinematic potential. Some clever writing by Joss Whedon and a spot-on performance by Mark Ruffalo made the Hulk the best thing about the Avengers.

Since then, there has been on-and-off talk about the possibility of another Hulk film; although if it happens, it will be a few years down the road. Even Mark Ruffalo and Lou Ferrigno—who starred in the old TV series The Incredible Hulk as the Jade giant—have hinted that a film is in the cards. »

Hercules review

23 July 2014 12:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dwayne Johnson takes on the role of a club-wielding demigod in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. What’s not to like? Here’s Ryan’s review...

In Hercules, Dwayne Johnson wears a lion’s head as a hat. That probably tells you a lot about the tone of director Brett Ratner’s larger-than-life sword-and-sandals adventure. Based on Steve Moore’s comic book of the same name, Hercules re-imagines the hero of classical legend as a flesh-and-blood mercenary struggling to live up to the weight of his own myth.

Surrounded by a misfit group of fellow warriors-for-hire, Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules is the ultimate working class hero, even if he is meant to be the son of Zeus: he leads from the front, and wades into action while the noblemen he works for stand around in their purple cloaks, chatting and eating freshly-peeled grapes.

Like videogame characters, Hercules’ crew each has a »

Feige Talks About Marvel's 'Hulk' Plans

21 July 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since The Avengers, there has been lots of buzz around The Incredible Hulk. Despite having two attempts at solo films- which both under-performed- it would appear that Joss Whedon's use of the character was what finally sparked the imagination of the masses. That, and Mark Ruffalo's strong portrayal of Bruce Banner. Since then, much has been made about what Marvel would like to do with the character's scene-stealing popularity. Our own El Mayimbe once exclusively reported on plans for a film based on the Planet Hulk books, and his claims were more or less verified when concept art for Thor: The Dark World was released that showed that- at one point- Marvel was toying with the idea. The art showed characters that first appeared in those books, like the Oldstrong and Kaifi.

But now, as has been said before, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is confirming that »

Marvel's Future Plans for Hulk May Involve Another Heroic Team

1 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

There's been a lot of buzz about what Marvel might have in store for The Incredible Hulk following The Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was bodybuilder and TV series star Lou Ferrigno who first started talking about plans for another standalone movie for the green machine, and The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo echoed his sentiments. Then just yesterday, Ruffalo was specifically asked about bringing a certain storyline to the big screen: Planet Hulk. However, the actor didn't seem to think that was the story to go with to continue Hulk's arc. But now it turns out that may not entirely be true, but Ruffalo wasn't necessarily lying. First, let's have a bit of a recap. The rumor of the Planet Hulk storyline becoming part of Marvel's cinematic universe first started in February of 2013, before Iron Man 3 or Thor: The Dark World had even hit theaters. For those who may not be aware, »

Andy Serkis Has an Unknown Role in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Also

30 June 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Along with rumors from Lou Ferrigno that another standalone Hulk movie was coming after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has since been backed up by star Mark Ruffalo, we also learned that motion-capture performance master Andy Serkis was working on the film. Serkis had been working closely with Ruffalo regarding some more intensive motion-capture work to help bring the big guy to life in the Marvel sequel, and the actor's company The Imaginarium is performance capture consultant, just like on Star Wars Episode VII. But now we have word that Serkis actually has a role in The Avengers follow-up too. Speaking with Variety, Serkis confirmed, "The Imaginarium is the performance capture consultant, and I’m playing a role (in both films)." He was also asked whether it was a motion-capture role or one where we'll actually see his face, but he didn't give anything away saying, "I’m not at liberty to mention. »

Mark Ruffalo Says Marvel is Considering New ‘Hulk’ Movie

18 June 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

If you ask actor Lou Ferrigno, the original Incredible Hulk, about the future of Marvel’s largest and most ill-tempered Avenger, he’d tell you that the green giant is getting his own movie sometime after next summer’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Given that Marvel Studios has yet to outline all of their Phase 3 plans for 2016-17 it’s certainly possible.

Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige said as much in interviews for The Avengers two years ago, but warned that if there were to be another Hulk movie for star Mark Ruffalo, it wouldn’t be until after The Avengers 2. Skip forward to present and Ruffalo says it’s now actually (read: finally) under “consideration.” Although it probably has been that way for ...

Marvel Still Toying with Idea of Incredible Hulk Standalone Movie

17 June 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the aspects of The Avengers most people enjoyed was the inclusion of The Incredible Hulk, played by Mark Ruffalo and voiced by Lou Ferrigno. Standalone films centered on the big green guy haven't exactly done all that well, but as a supporting character he definitely worked. Now, with a familiarity around the character growing and will only continue to grow in next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, there is talk once again about taking another stab at a solo feature. Previously, Ferrigno said a standalone film might be on the horizon some time after Age of Ultron and now Ruffalo is backing up that claim, or, at least giving it a little more credence in an interview with Digital Spy: "I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of a standalone film. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. »

Marvel Is Considering a 'Hulk' Stand-Alone Movie

17 June 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Marvel's The Avengers set the box office on fire back in 2012, fans finally got the Hulk they wanted with Mark Ruffalo's version of Bruce Banner. Though, despite that Phase One ensemble's box office success, there have never been plans for a Hulk stand-alone movie. Last May, Mark Ruffalo said there were no plans for Hulk to get his own spin-off anytime soon, but he was not giving up hope on trying to make that happen.

While promoting his upcoming drama Begin Again, Mark Ruffalo revealed that Marvel is finally warming up to the idea of this iconic Green Goliath getting his own solo movie, although nothing definitive is in the works yet.

"I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did The Avengers it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. But there's still nothing definitive, »

Mark Ruffalo Says Marvel Considering New Standalone Hulk Movie

17 June 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Back towards the beginning of the summer blockbuster season, word came from "Incredible Hulk" TV series star Lou Ferrigno that Marvel was planning to do a standalone Hulk movie sometime after The Avengers: Age of Ultron. But despite the fact that Ferrigno is involved with doing some voice work to bring the big green guy to life, he's likely not within the circle of trust who knows the future plans of Marvel Studios, even if it's specifically with the character he helps bring to life. However, Mark Ruffalo just recently spoke with Digital Spy, and he also thinks that Marvel is keen on another standalone Hulk movie. When asked whether he would get his own movie as The Hulk, Ruffalo said: "I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it. When we did 'The Avengers' it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it. »

Mark Ruffalo Says There Might Be a Standalone 'Hulk' Movie

17 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Is Hulk set to smash yet again?

Back in December, people scoffed a bit when Lou Ferrigno claimed another "Hulk" standalone movie was in the works. But now, Mark Ruffalo -- who played the green giant in "The Avengers" and reprises that role in "Age of Ultron" -- is backing him up.

"I think they are, for the first time, entertaining the idea of it," Ruffalo told Digital Spy of a standalone film. "When we did 'The Avengers,' it was basically 'No!', and now there is some consideration for it."

Before "The Avengers," two different "Hulk" movies -- 2003 with Eric Bana and 2008 with Ed Norton -- didn't exactly set the world on fire. But the character became much more popular after "The Avengers," and fans have been chattering ever since about rebooting the property with Ruffalo.

So, maybe Marvel is rethinking a "Hulk" movie. But if it does come to pass, »

ABC will burn off the remaining episodes of The Assets on Saturdays starting on June 21. I rather liked ABC’s espionage mini-series when it got pulled, so I’m looking forward to seeing the remaining episodes.

Deadline reports that Ghost Hunters is losing out Taps team member Adam Berry. Berry and fellow paranormal investigator Amy Bruni are leaving to work on their own show.

How will ABC singing competition Rising Star work? The series will conduct eliminations based on how viewers vote on a show app with results being counted during the live broadcast. But how will that work in a country with five time zones? In the Eastern, Central and Mountain time zones, the show will air live. Meanwhile, West Coast viewers will basically get to veto the other three time zones’ rejections. There’s no mention if viewers in Hawaii are included in the West Coast. »

Lou Ferrigno, The Incredible Hulk, Victim Of A Death Hoax

28 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Lou Ferrigno was the victim of a death hoax on Wednesday, May 28, when reports suggested that the actor had died in a car accident.

Ferrigno, known for playing The Hulk in the short-lived The Incredible Hulk television show, was rumored to have died in a massive pile-up in Santa Barbara, Calif., after a parody website posted the story.

Lou Ferrigno: "I'm Alive"

The 62-year-old actor and bodybuilder is, in fact, alive and well. He took to Facebook to disprove the rumors, writing, “Thank you all for the concern! I am alive and working."

To prove he is alive, Ferrigno recorded a short video message to his fans.

“Hi everyone, it’s Lou Ferrigno. I’m on my way to the bank; it’s a great Wednesday, beautiful and sunny. I’m not dead. I’m still alive,” Ferrigno said in the video.

The Hulk is one of the most popular and enduring comic book characters of all-time, maintaining a constant spotlight presence in Marvel’s stable for over five decades. In that time, the modern Jekyll-and-Hyde story has captured the imaginations and sympathy of generations of comic book fans time and again.

Thanks to 2012′s The Avengers, the Hulk character might be experiencing an all-time high level of popularity, comparable to the heyday of the live-action Incredible Hulk television show from the 70s and 80s. Mark Ruffalo’s well-received turn as Bruce Banner in the blockbuster film, combined with the success of the 2008 film Incredible Hulk and the anticipation for Avengers: Age of Ultron has a different kind of Hulkamania at a fevered pitch. Luckily for fans of the big green guy, there are all kinds of stories making the rounds concerning Marvel’s mauler.

The U.S. Air Force Has a Hilarious Plan for a Real Godzilla Attack (Video)

9 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In preparation for the release of the "Godzilla" reboot this summer, the Smithsonian's Air & Space magazine wondered: How would the U.S. military respond to a real-life attack by the lizard monster?

It turns out that at least a couple members of the U.S. Air Force have thought about just such a scenario, though how serious they are about the execution of their defense plans is up for debate. Air & Space asked Senior Airman Mark Hermann and Master Sgt. Jason Edwards, stationed at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan, for their thoughts on a hypothetical Godzilla invasion, and both had some pretty inspired responses.

Hermann took the bit slightly more seriously than Edwards, speculating that the base would need all its F-15 planes and at least 600 rounds of ammunition per person to take down the beast. Godzilla's atomic breath would be a concern for troops, Hermann said, but if »
