Real Action Heroes — Video About Superhero Stunt Doubles

8 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

CBS Sunday Morning's Lee Cowan goes behind the scenes to interview Chris Evans' stunt double Sam Hargrave during the production of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While the main focus is on Hargrave, Cowan also interviews many other stunt people. Stunt work is one of the unsung elements of modern comic book movies. Most people think it's all visual effects and take for granted the hard hitting work of dedicated daredevils.

Chadwick Boseman Rumored To Play Black Panther In Avengers: Age of Ultron

16 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The latest bit of speculation to hit the internet regarding Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to us courtesy of Nerd Reactor, who thinks that 42 star Chadwick Boseman may be showing up as Black Panther in the film.

Black Panther is one of the most prominent minority superheroes and in the comic books, he is most often depicted as the ruler of the fictional African country, Wakanda. Nerd Reactor quotes a report from Devin Faraci of Badass Digest, who says that the plot of the new Avengers film will involve the titular villain Ultron building his armor out of the material vibranium (the same material that Captain America’s shield is made out of), which he gets from Wakanda. So presumably, that’s how Panther will tie in.

Frankly, it’s about time the Black Panther made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel movies, »

Elizabeth Olsen "Terrified" of Spilling Avengers: Age of Ultron Secrets, Slightly Intimidated by Cast

16 April 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Avengers is one of the most profitable films of all time, earning $1.5 billion since its April 2012 release. So when Elizabeth Olsen was cast as the Scarlet Witch in the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, she was understandably nervous about joining returning cast members Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. "With a situation like The Avengers where there's already an established franchise, you're the newbies. That's kind of intimidating," the actress tells Flaunt of joining the movie with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays her twin. "But I feel like I swing back and forth. I've been prepping this since January, at »

Which Of These Sexy Catsuits Are Good In A Fight And Which Are Way Too Tight?

16 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

From Katniss to Catwoman (all three of them), we’ve seen our favorite Hollywood actresses suit up in skin-tight costumes affectionately known as “catsuits.” Yes, they are all incredibly sexy, but are any of these catsuits legitimately super suits? As in, how useful are any of these tight outfits when these characters are in a tight spot?

We might have fun ogling Chris Evans‘ butt when he’s suited up as Captain America or melting over Chris Hemsworth‘s crazy arms when he’s geared up as Thor, but when it comes to fight scenes, both guys are always dressed to defeat their foes. But what about Scarlett Johansson? Is Black Widow’s hip-hugging outfit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier there to help her kick the bad guys’ butts, or is it only designed so guys in audience can stare at her butt? Is there a »

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role as The Vision

16 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Watch: Spotlight on Fantastic Stunt Work in 'Captain America' & More

15 April 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you're a cinephile, you know a lot of hard work from a hell of a lot of people goes into making movie magic possible. But perhaps one of the most overlooked performers in some of the most popular movies to hit theaters are the stunt men and women who put themselves into harm's way when the action gets a little too dangerous. CBS Sunday Morning (via Movies.com) recently did a 10-minute profile on stuntwork in feature films with a special focus on Sam Hargrave, the stunt double who steps in for Chris Evans when things get too tough on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There's also a short look back at the history of stunts on the big screen, and the profession that deserves its own Academy Award category. Here's the news feature "Taking the Fall" from CBS Sunday Morning (via Movies.com): "I exist because I'm expendable. »

Wes Anderson, Tom Hiddleston on Working With Tilda Swinton

15 April 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wes Anderson

“Tilda was at Sundance for ‘Orlando’ when we showed our short film of ‘Bottle Rocket’ there in 1993. I had never seen — as an audience member and also, from a snowy distance, in person — anyone remotely like her. And like everyone else in Park City, I was immediately captivated.”

Bong Joon-ho

“There is one particularly grotesque scene in (‘Snowpiercer’) in which Tilda suddenly removes her (prosthetic) dentures in front of Chris Evans. I don’t even remember if that scene was Tilda’s idea or mine. That’s how melded together we were as creative collaborators, and for me, the entire process

was pure joy.”

Jim Jarmusch

“Tilda is one of the most amazing creatures I have ever met. I first met her in Los Angeles backstage at a concert by a group called the Darkness. We just walked up to each other, and she said, ‘Jim.’ And I said, »

Meet Captain America's Badass Stunt Double

They’re the unsung heroes of cinema – the men and women who make all those superhuman feats in action and adventure movies possible. No, we’re not talking about the visual effects team – we’re talking about stunt people. CBS Sunday Morning recently did a feature on the role these performers play in making movie magic come to life, and if you’re curious about the history of stunts in Hollywood and some of the folks who make the impossible possible, this is essential viewing.   The 10-minute segment covers a lot of ground – from some of the earliest stunts ever captured, to more modern work on films like Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which includes lots of great insight from Chris Evans' stunt double Sam Hargrave...

Paul Bettany Confirms Vision Role In ‘Avengers 2′

14 April 2014 11:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Bettany has been with the Marvel cinematic universe since the very beginning, taking on the role of Tony Stark’s AI butler J.A.R.V.I.S. However, it seems as though vocal work just isn’t enough, and although rumours have persisted for months regarding Bettany’s promotion to physicality in the form of The Vision in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, there was never any real official confirmation. Now Paul Bettany has gone on record commenting on his role during a live performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Transcendence:

It’s very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give ma huge bag of cash and then I’d go home. »

Movie Review: 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'

14 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson, Anthony Mackie, Robert Redford, Samuel Jackson

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo

Rated PG-13

I’ve really come to admire what Marvel and their Marvel Studios have been doing over the past few years.  Not only do I admire them for the big picture plan they have with their movies and tying them all together, but I admire them putting thought into what they’re putting out.  A bulk of the credit can go them for restoring the faith in the value of the comic book movie (the rest can go to that other guy, you may have heard of him…Chris Nolan).  And while we heap praise on them, we must also be keenly aware that they had some involvement in the hole they had to crawl out of some years back.  But the Marvel universe is a good one now, »

Paul Bettany Talks Vision in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 April 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, it was announced that the voice of Tony Stark's personal A.I. system J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers, Paul Bettany, would be taking on the role of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The actor recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he talked a bit about the challenges of accepting the role. While he couldn't delve too deep into Vision's story or powers, he did hint that it is quite a change going from a voice actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to someone who is needed on set.

"Oh I can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me...It's very exciting for me, »

Superman Wins 'Best Hero' Award At The MTV Movie Awards

14 April 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

'Superman' defeats ' Iron Man' and 'Thor' to be ranked Best Hero by the general public.  Henry Cavill's Superman of Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' has been named the 'Best Hero' of the past year at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. While the MTV Movie Awards isn't exactly the Oscars... it is quite a win for Warners Bros and DC entertainment as it's a popularity contest where the winners are voted for by the general public. The results of this vote could help boost DC's confidence for the sequel to 'Man of Steel' as it's scheduled to face-off Superman's Marvel counterpart Captain America in 2016. Then again, Chris Evans wasn't nominated since CapAm 2 only just came out.  The other nominies were Robert Downey Jr. from 'Iron Man 3,' Chris Hemsworth from 'Thor: the Dark World,' Martin Freeman from 'The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug,' and Channing Tatum from 'White House Down. »
