Benedict Cumberbatch Is 'Doctor Strange'

27 October 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well after months of speculation, Doctor Strange has finally been found.

According to Deadline, Benedict Cumberbatch is in final negotiations to take on the title role in Marvel's upcoming film.

At one point Joaquin Phoenix was in negotiations for the role, but the talks fell apart in early October. Other actors who were rumored to be in the mix such as Ryan GoslingJared LetoTom HardyJustin Theroux, Ethan Hawke and even Keanu Reeves. I personally liked Eric Bana but that's just me.

The Marvel feature film is being directed by Scott Derrickson.

Doctor Strange is a former neurosurgeon who serves as the Sorcerer Supreme — the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Doctor Strange made his first appearance in the Marvel Universe more than 50 years ago, and was first created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in the pages of Strange Tales No. 110.

Check Out This Eerie Clip From Deliver Us From Evil Ahead Of Blu-Ray Release

23 October 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we approach the year’s end and look back in hindsight, 2014 served up some great new entries into the horror genre as a whole. Films like Annabelle, The Badabook, As Above, So Below along with another new entry into The Purge franchise ensured that genre fans had plenty to keep them up at night in petrified fear.

One such title was Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil, the supernatural-infused crime drama that took its inspiration from real-life events. In fact, the film is said to be based on the bone-chilling personal accounts from Sargent Ralph Sarchie’s own NYPD experiences.

For Derrickson’s rendition, Eric Bana steps into the shoes of Sarchie — a detective who must wrestle his own personal demons while stalking the streets of the Big Apple to solve a series of gruelling murders. Joining Bana in Deliver Us From Evil are Édgar Ramírez, Olivia Munn, »

Norton Talks Not Playing "Hulk" Again

23 October 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst Ang Lee's "Hulk" with Eric Bana is a one-off dead end, 2008's "The Incredible Hulk" is considered a part of the official canon of Marvel Studios films and within the Marvel Cinematic Universe's continuity.

Edward Norton played the part of Bruce Banner/Hulk in that film, a role which was recast for "The Avengers" with Mark Ruffalo taking over the part and scoring a much more welcome reaction from fans.

Still, Norton was originally slated to return for "The Avengers" and opted not to. In a new interview with NPR, the acclaimed actor spoke about turning down the role:

"My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that. »

Edward Norton Says He Didn't Return To Play Hulk Because He Wanted More "Diversity" In His Film Roles

22 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For all their success, the one franchise character Marvel has struggled with is The Hulk. After failing with 2003 iteration "Hulk" starring Eric Bana, and directed by Ang Lee, the studio hoped the combination of Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton could do the trick with 2008's "The Incredible Hulk." Even with Robert Downey Jr. popping his head in for a final stinger at the end, everyone pretty much pretends it didn't happen. And thus, Norton's dalliance with the Marvel-verse — a rare excursion into blockbuster land for the actor — came to an end. And it was one he looks back on reflectively. "My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to. I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that. »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Star Trek: The Compendium’ Provides Victory Lap for Revitalized Franchise

18 September 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – With J.J. Abrams not involved with the creation of a third “Star Trek” movie, a compendium of his work within the franchise only seems fitting. Loaded with special features but only a few new ones, this disc set is a strong choice for those who don’t already have both entertaining blockbusters in their collection.

Even better, it’s a good choice for any “Star Wars” fans looking to feel a new hope about the choice of Abrams for the highly-anticipated “Episode VII” installment.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

In just two films, Abrams and his filmmaking crew have successfully revitalized the “Star Trek” brand to the multiplex mainstream, adding a new edge to the previous elements that were in the “Star Trek” niche. The progression has certainly been gradual. In my book, the 2009 film “Star Trek” is a fun popcorn movie that pushes some expectations, but has a flat villain (Eric Bana »

'Sons of Anarchy's' Kim Coates Says the Final Season Is 'Full Out, Full Throttle, Wiping Everybody Out'

16 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans.

If there's one "Soa" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's run. And we wouldn't have Tig without actor Kim Coates.

Coates has been working on film, stage, and TV for decades, and his career doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon. The versatile Canadian-born actor has appeared in everything from "Entourage" to "Waterworld" to "A Streetcar Named Desire" on Broadway.

Moviefone had the chance to chat with Coates about what fans will see this season on "Sons of Anarchy," as the show comes to its bittersweet end. He also revealed a bit of what »
