Frank Grillo talks Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War

28 May 2015 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When he was first spotted in his full Crossbones outfit on the set of Captain America: Civil War, the Twitter-verse lost their minds with the new design. Some people liked it, some people loved it and there was those (of course) who weren’t keen.

“It’s funny because people really responded to it – it went viral, trended [like crazy], so I’ve been getting phone calls.” Grillo told radio station 93.3 Wmmr. “Crossbones is a violent, violent villain in this series, and I finally feel I’ve been understood now. I feel complete; [people] get me.”

The actor also added that he’s been having a blast on the set of Captain America: Civil War, also tweeting that he’s not done just yet. “[These movies] film for months and months and there’s a lot of characters, so It’s great fun.” he said. “And everybody down here gets along real well.

While taking a break from battling Chris Evans' Super Soldier and the new Avengers team last week, actor Frank Grillo call into the 93.3 Wmmr radio station to talk about his return as Brock Rumlow aka Crossbones in Captain America: Civil War.

Agent Carter’s Second Season Will Be 10 Episodes

26 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Agent Carter is coming back bigger than ever, with word that the ABC comic-book drama’s sophomore run has been expanded to 10 episodes, making it two longer than the show’s previous season.

Hayley Atwell, who first portrayed the Marvel heroine in Captain America: The First Avenger, broke the news while participating in a panel at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, this past weekend.

Agent Carter premiered as a midseason replacement for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. back in January, holding up well in the ratings and drawing critical acclaim. The eight-episode first season focused on the character’s struggle to balance life as a secret agent with the duties of a single woman in 1940s America. Though Carter’s grief over the loss of her love, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), played a part in the freshman run, that’s less of a focus this second time around.

Michael B. Jordan Responds to Racially Charged Criticism of His 'Fantastic Four' Casting

25 May 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's kind of hard to believe it's 2015 and we are still having conversations about the lack of non-white characters in film and television. Last I checked a large fraction of the United States population is composed of non-white men and women. And yet black, Hispanic, Asian, and other racially diverse characters -- and women, too -- are largely shunted to minor roles, a practice that becomes strikingly obvious almost every time a major studio blockbuster hits the big screen. Yes, when it comes to comic books I think we all probably understand a lot of these characters are white men and women in their source material, that's wonderful, but that doesn't mean things can't change when their stories are adapted to the big screen. One such change was made for Fox's reboot of Fantastic Four, which sees Michael B. Jordan cast as Johnny Storm -- a.k.a. The Human »

Everything we know so far about the Fantastic Four reboot: Spoilers, trailer and latest rumours

25 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox's new Fantastic Four is sneaking up on us with surprising stealth. Other than the odd controversy, news on the film from Chronicle director Josh Trank has been relatively light.

So what do we know about the movie, other than it surely has to improve on its Jessica Alba and Chris Evans-starring predecessors? Read on to find out:

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family

In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.

We have a whole new lineup, with Whiplash's Miles Teller as stretchy super scientist Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, House of Cards' Kate Mara and Chronicle »

Chris Pratt Apologizes for Anything Offensive He May or May Not Say

24 May 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chris Pratt, the biggest star of 2014 and the Michelangelo of Poop Pics, is one internet-savvy guy. After the series of unfortunate incidents that was The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour, which included Robert Downey Jr. walking out of an interview (then pompously insulting indie films) and a weird, sexist bro moment courtesy of Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner (Evans apologized; Renner didn’t), Pratt has beaten the internet outrage machine to the punch: The Jurassic World star issued an apology for anything offensive he may say during his upcoming press tour. We forgive him already. »

Watch: Poltergeist’s Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt Play “Save or Kill”

24 May 2015 7:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is director Gil Kenan’s (Monster House) contemporary remake of the classic horror film Poltergeist. Produced by Sam Raimi, the redo stars Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt as parents trying to fend off a spiritual invasion and save their eight-year-old daughter (Kennedi Clements) from the evil forces trying to take her. The film also stars Jared Harris, Saxon SharbinoKyle CatlettSusan Heyward and Nicholas Braun. While some might be nervous about the remake, I was actually surprised by how well it’s put together. However, it’s definitely aimed at a younger audience, and it’s important to know that going in. While I already posted the first part of my interview with Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt, it’s now time to watch them play “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone »

Chris Pratt wants to make absolutely sure we know he's sorry - even if he hasn't said the thing he's apologising for saying yet.

The Jurassic World actor posted a statement on Facebook apologising for anything he might accidentally say during his press tour for the upcoming film.

"When I do (potentially) commit the offensive act for which I am now (pre) apologising, you must understand I (will likely have been) tired and exhausted when I (potentially) said that thing I (will have had) said that (will have had) crossed the line."

'Fantastic Four' Star Michael B. Jordan Responds to Critics of Black Johnny Storm

22 May 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not everyone feels, well, fantastic about a black actor taking on the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the new "Fantastic Four" movie. In this re-imagining, Kate Mara plays Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller is Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Jamie Bell is Ben Grimm/The Thing, and Michael B. Jordan is Johnny Storm, the role played by Chris Evans in the 2005 movie.

Since Johnny was originally written to be blond with blue eyes, some fans grumbled about the change to cast Michael B. Jordan. Jordan just wrote a piece for Entertainment Weekly, responding to comments like "A black guy? I don't like it. They must be doing it because Obama's president," "It's not true to the comic," and "They've destroyed it!"

Here's part of what Jordan wrote:

The latest commercial for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four may just be a promo for MovieTickets.com, but it also gives us our clearest look at both The Thing and Johnny Storm. It is interesting to note just how different the Human Torch appears in the new version and yet very much the same as we are used to. Yes, he is covered in flames like the version Chris Evans played, but the Michael B. Jordan iteration of the character looks to be on fire rather than made of it. There are a couple of new »

Chris Evans comfortable as Captain America?

22 May 2015 12:34 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Chris Evans feels ''incredibly comfortable'' playing Captain America. The 33-year-old actor has confessed he was nervous when he first landed the role because he was worried comic book fans wouldn't accept him but now, having starred as the superhero in a number of films, he's comfortable enough to mix things up. Asked if it's easy to slip back into character, he said: ''Absolutely. When you first take on the role, it's intimidating, and you're scared the fans may not accept you. Now, I feel incredibly comfortable with it, and that's when you start trying to challenge the character and forge new territory.'' The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' actor is set to appear alongside Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man in the next instalment in the Captain America franchise, 'Civil War', but insists his character - who is also named Steve Rogers - will still be the main focus. »
