The actor/motion capture artist has an on-screen role in the Marvel Phase Two sequel, and while he was briefly spotted in the official trailer released last month, it still isn't clear who he is playing. He also worked on the motion capture aspects of the sequel, through his company The Imaginarium. The actor recently shed new light on his Mo-Cap work for the sequel in an interview with Empire. Take a look at what he had to say about developing the look of Ultron, before James Spader signed on.

"We did some work on Ultron. On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? Was he going to be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, »

Frank Grillo Speaks On Crossbones’ Return In Captain America: Civil War

24 November 2014 12:58 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s Phase Three roster has dominated headlines since the comic behemoth unveiled the line-up last month. With so many headlining favourites returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, along with a clutch of new comic heroes set to make their big screen debuts, it’s easy for focus to slip from the supporting roles. However, one such thesp who knocked it out of the park this year was Frank Grillo in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Taking to the comic book format like a duck to water, his turn as Brock Rumlow was a scene stealing performance. As his fate dangled in the balance at the end of Cap’s last outing, many wondered, would he back for Captain America: Civil War?

Earlier this month, we reported that Grillo is not only back as the badass Crossbones – but he’s signed a multi-film deal with Marvel. Whether or not he »

19 November 2014 5:13 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first project under Robert Downey Jr.’s production banner Team Downey, the drama The Judge, was released earlier this year, and now another Team Downey film is moving closer to fruition.  Deadline reports that screenwriter Terry Rossio has been tapped to pen the script for the Warner Bros. treasure hunt film Yucatan, which is based on an original idea by iconic actor Steve McQueen and is being developed as a star vehicle for Downey Jr.  Rossio’s credits include co-writing the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films as well as the animated features Shrek and Aladdin, so he’s got plenty of experience in the adventure realm.  More on Yucatan after the jump.

Why People's Sexiest Man Alive Picked the Wrong Hemsworth

19 November 2014 2:25 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

To be fair, we did think People’s Sexiest Man Alive would be a dude named Chris who stars in Marvel movies. But when Jimmy Kimmel revealed the magazine cover featuring Chris Hemsworth, we were like, “Uhh, typo?”

(We thought it was going to be Chris Pratt. You figured that out, right?)

But Hemsworth? If any Hemsworth were going to win, we'd think it would be Liam Hemsworth. And we will argue why using three simple rules we learned from How to Get Away With Murder. (Thanks, Viola Davis!)

Step 1: Discredit the Witness People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

Is Chris Hemsworth hot? Undeniably. Is he the hottest actor named Chris that Marvel cast in a movie? Hard to say. He is buff — see: gratuitous shirtlessness in Thor, Thor: The Dark World — but have you seen Chris Evans’ chest and biceps and everything else muscley »

One For Them: Idris Elba chastized for the painful truth

17 November 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Idris Elba’s recent comments about working on Thor: The Dark World

Most real actors would rather do a West End play than appear in a major Hollywood blockbuster.

Does that surprise anyone? Is this a statement that would normally send cold shivers down the spine of those who read it? Idris Elba dropped a truth bomb this week, pointing out some of the ridiculousness of modern movie making. Strapped into a harness for hours, dangled back and forth against a green screen, being yelled direction through a bullhorn. I doubt this is what anyone attended the Royal Shakespeare Company for.

The very obvious truth is that actors do blockbuster movies for the career bump and sometimes the pay check. The popular quote for popular actors is “one for them, one for you”. You do the studio movie to get paid, which allows you to do the »
