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 »

Marvel Releases Official Phase 3 Timeline Image

17 November 2014 12:38 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You may remember seeing glimpses of a full timeline of films for Marvel’s upcoming Phase 3 slate during the studio’s big unveiling presentation, but you’d be forgiven for forgetting seeing as how Marvel Studios dumped a lot of big news that day.  Not to worry, because Marvel has now officially revealed the Phase 3 timeline image, which might come in handy when trying to keep track of all the superhero movies we have on tap.  Ant-Man was originally supposed to kick off the next phase, but that film has now been moved under the Phase 2 banner as sort of a post-script after Avengers: Age of Ultron.  The real Phase 3 festivities begin on May 6, 2016 with the release of Captain America: Civil War, which pits Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man against Chris EvansCaptain America, with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Daniel Bruhl’s unnamed villain also in the mix. »

10 Problems With The Avengers No One Wants To Admit

17 November 2014 9:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The Avengers is a critically acclaimed and financial masterpiece by most accounts, leaving many to feel that it is a flawless piece of cinema. It is the third highest grossing film of all time (without adjusting for inflation) and is part of the ever expanding McU. It has received unparalleled levels of success in the comic book movie genre, and it is responsible for Hollywood’s sudden infatuation with shared universes.

The star studded cast of Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and countless others seemed to ensure that the film would be immaculate and nearly perfect.

This is not quite the case. There are many issues which are not evident on the first viewing, but the more you watch it, the more you realise that there are a plethora of plot holes, poor plot choices or simply a lack of character development. »

Daniel Brühl Joins the Cast of Captain America: Civil War

14 November 2014 4:06 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Captain America: Civil War—the third entry in the star-spangled series—set to begin shooting next spring, the cast is taking a more clearly defined shape. In recent weeks, it was revealed that the film will include Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther and today Marvel announced that Daniel Brühl has joined the growing cast.

Marvel has yet to officially announce what role Daniel Brühl will tackle in Captain America: Civil War, but there has been speculation that he will play a key villain. Brühl is perhaps best known for playing Fredrick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, Niki Lauda in Ron Howard’s Rush, and Daniel Berg in Bill Condon’s The Fifth Estate.

'Doctor Strange' Villain to Be Introduced in 'Captain America 3'?

14 November 2014 3:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just moments ago, Marvel announced that Daniel Br&#252hl has joined the cast of Captain America: Civil War in a mystery role. Shortly there after, Deadline claimed the actor is set to play the villain. Now, a third report has come in, and while no character is named, Variety notes that the villain will actually be the main nemesis seen in Doctor Strange.

Captain America: Civil War, which hits theaters May 16, 2016, will actually set up Doctor Strange's main villain, which hits theaters later that same year in November. This is all speculation, of course, until Disney and Marvel confirm or deny it. But sources close to the studio claim that this is how the story is set to play out.

This fits in with comments made earlier in the year by producer and studio figurehead Kevin Feige:

Captain America: Civil War adds Daniel Bruhl to cast

14 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel Bruhl is next to join the Marvel cinematic universe. Quite possibly in Doctor Strange as well as Captain America 2...

Production starts early next year on Captain America: Civil War, the film that's expected to kickstart some major changes in the Marvel cinematic universe. There are links at the bottom if you want more spoilery stuff about it, but we'll keep this story spoiler-free.

Anyway, we know that Chris Evans will be reprising the role of Steve Rogers/Captain America, and we also know that Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to direct, having scored a sizeable critical and commercial hit with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Now though, Marvel has directly confirmed that Daniel Bruhl has joined the cast of Captain America: Civil War. Bruhl's performance in Rush is probably our favourite of his to date, although do track down the German comedy Good Bye Lenin! if you get a chance. »
