Nebula Returns in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'; Will Groot?

26 January 2015 6:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Writer-director James Gunn is currently working on the script for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but the filmmaker recently took a break from his busy schedule to host a Q&A session on his Facebook page last week, where he teased new details regarding this highly-anticipated sequel. Be warned, though, if you have not seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet, there will be Spoilers throughout the story, so read on at your own risk.

At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, the tree-like creature Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) appeared to have died, only to "come back" in the form of a growing "Baby Groot," whose dancing scene shown over the end credits remains one of the most popular scenes in the film. James Gunn revealed that Groot may still be dead, hinting that "Baby Groot" may be Groot's son. Here's what he had to say below.

'The Flash' Star Wants to Join 'Power Rangers' Movie

24 January 2015 1:56 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Max Braverman pointed out this past Thursday, statistics don't lie. It's too bad we don't yet have a solid statistic that tells us how often an actor lobbying for a role works out in their favor. We know that Vin Diesel was welcomed into the Marvel Cinematic Universe because of how vocal he was with fans about the possibility on his personal Facebook page. But have we seen anyone else win a role by begging for the part on social media? Earlier today, we saw that Tyrese Gibson wants to play Green Lantern in the Justice League, as he pointed out on his own Instagram. Now one of the stars of The CW's The Flash is hoping to land a role in the upcoming Power Rangers reboot by utilizing the same tactics.

Like many of us, Robbie Amell, who plays Firestorm on The Flash, grew up with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. »

Tyrese Gibson As 'John Stewart'? Transformers Star Charges Up Green Lantern 'Rumor'

23 January 2015 8:35 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As Warner Bros. announced last year, the Green Lantern reboot is set for release on June 19, 2020, and is currently the last DC Comics film on the studio's superhero slate. However, it's been implied that a fresh take on the Emerald Crusader will feature in Zack Snyder's two-part Justice League movies in 2017 and 2018, which makes it somewhat interesting that singer/actor Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) recently posted fan-art of himself as the Green Lantern on Instagram and with the caption: "Rumor has it that." Given this would be a Warner Bros. production, Gibson is not likely teasing that he has the role or is even in talks, but he could be taking cues from his Fast & Furious 6 co-star Vin Diesel, whose social media lobbying landed him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, this might not be the best way to join DC's Universe, but what do you think of the »

James Gunn Says Ronan The Accuser Won’t Return For Guardians Of The Galaxy 2

23 January 2015 11:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Against all odds, Guardians Of The Galaxy charmed the pants off everyone. Audiences, critics, and even those lucky actors who starred in the Marvel movie mega-hit. Just last week, Lee Pace – who played the blue hammer-wielding villain, Ronan The Accuser – came forth to reveal his passion for the franchise. In an interview with IGN, the actor confessed that he’d be over the moon if he were given the chance to reprise the role. While Ronan suffered a grisly fate at the end of the first flick, this is the movies, and as we all know, no death in a comic book feature is ever permanent.

However, Pace’s enthusiasm isn’t the issue. It’s whether or nor director James Gunn has room for him in the sequel, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. And it seems that alas, we won’t be seeing the blue-skinned baddy. Yet.

Ronan Will Not Return in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

23 January 2015 9:50 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just because Ronan the Accuser appeared to (Spoiler!!) die at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't mean his soul isn't floating through the cosmos looking for another host body. Just recently, Lee Pace revealed that he'd love to return in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, however unlikely that sounded at the time. Now, in a special Q&A with James Gunn for the DVD and Blu-ray release of this Marvel blockbuster, the director does say that Ronan may return...At some point! But it definitely won't be in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (unless he's planning a sneaky surprise).

James Gunn broke the news during his Facebook session. You can check out the entire commentary: clickHere. People have really responded to Lee Pace and his character, enough so that two people had to ask the same question.

In his previous interview, Lee Pace proclaimed his love for the Ronan character, »

'Mockingjay' Beats 'Guardians' as Biggest Movie of 2014

22 January 2015 11:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the second year in a row, Katniss Everdeen stands alone atop the box office heap. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, which opened in November and is still playing in over 1,200 theaters, has earned $333.18 million as of yesterday, surpassing the Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy as the top-grossing movie of 2014. Despite already being released on Blu-ray and DVD, Guardians of the Galaxy is still playing, though it was only screening in 65 theaters nationwide last weekend, meaning its domestic take of $333.17 million won't increase too much over the next few weeks.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 still has some work to do if it wants to surpass its predecessor, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was 2013's top movie at the box office with $424.7 million. While That movie's take was bolstered by 3D and IMAX screenings, Deadline's sources claim that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was screened in, »

Marvel has confirmed that Issue #2 will actually serve as a prequel/sequel to the fan-favorite end credits scene which featured Howard hanging out with the Collector.

Eagle-eyed viewers first noticed Howard the Duck as part of the Collector's menagerie early on in Guardians of the Galaxy. The upcoming comic book will reveal how Howard wound up in the Collector's (Benicio Del Toro) clutches. Here is the official synopsis for the story, courtesy of THR:

Howard's first big case has taken him across the universe and landed him in the clutches of The Collector! But he's not alone as the very popular Rocket Raccoon is a prisoner as well! »

Michelle Rodriguez on Zac, Cara Flings: 'I Couldn't Last Six Months with Someone'

15 January 2015 9:37 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michelle Rodriguez's latest interview might explain her very famous flings.

The 36-year-old Fast & Furious star opens up to Milla Jovovich for Interview magazine, in which she talks about why having kids is not in her immediate future.

"I have absolutely nothing consistent in my life," she says. " ... I'm a lone wolf. I run by myself on most things. I've got lots of really great friends, but the thought of being in a long-lasting relationship? Psh, I couldn't last more than six months with somebody, let alone have a father figure around for a kid."

She also feels she has much more to accomplish in Hollywood before settling down.

"I wouldn't want to sacrifice the last years that I have of being youthful in this business to have kids," she says bluntly. "I haven't done what I came here to do. I'm just kind »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Gets 2 Oscar Nominations

15 January 2015 7:05 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Early this morning, nominations were announced for the 87th Annual Academy Awards, which will be held on Sunday, February 22 at 7 Pm Et/4 Pm Pt from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. While some fans would have liked to see more recognition for Marvel Studios, the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy earned two nominations today for Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup and Hairstyling, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier also received a Best Visual Effects nomination along with 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Superhero movies don't normally fare well at the Oscars, and it seems that trend is continuing this year. Unless you want to count Birdman, which leads the pack with 9 nominees. But can we really consider it a super hero movie?

Some Oscar prognosticators thought that Guardians of the Galaxy may have had an outside shot at landing a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for James Gunn »

Marvel vs. 007: Why Coulson is more of a hero than Bond

10 January 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[This article tries to avoid any major spoilers, and so provides more of a general overview. Most specific plot points are implied, so while the article is not guaranteed to be 100% spoiler-free, it covers things which are generally considered common knowledge, and so most of the main plot points should be left intact.]

In the UK, both Skyfall and The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble) are being shown on television tonight on different channels at overlapping times, so fans will only be able to watch one. (That would seem to provoke a reaction like, 'I'm not going to choose between my favourite actor to play James Bond and my favourite writer! That's insane troll logic!')

Bond and Marvel are two of the biggest franchises in the world at the moment, with each set to release their next instalment this year (Spectre and Avengers: Age of Ultron). This being the internet, the default response would be to pit the two against each other, as if one could only be a fan of one franchise, not both. The prepondance of alternative viewing options, like DVDs, TV repeats, etc. ultimately render such a discussion moot, in the colloquial sense of the word, meaning redundant. However, it's »

2014 was a good year for Chris Pratt. Not only did he do fantastic work (yet again) in Parks and Recreation‘s sixth season, but he also starred in the biggest blockbuster of the year, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, alongside Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel.

Other actors in Jurassic World include Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, »

Vin Diesel and James Gunn talk Guardians of the Galaxy

Vin Diesel goes Groot and director James Gunn discusses bringing Guardians of the Galaxy to the big screen!

Guardians of the Galaxy was a success thanks to the inventive vision of director James Gunn, as well as the vocal performance of Vin Diesel, who managed to bring his character of Groot to life despite having only one line to repeat. With the film now out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD, both Gunn and Diesel participated in a Q&A to discuss the movie.

Vin Diesel

Q: How was it working with a script where your only line is “I am Groot”?

Diesel: I was lucky that I had a director [James Gunn] who was willing to indulge me. I told him: ‘We know that Groot is really saying any number of things when he says that line and most people are oblivious to the nuances of his speech because of his »
