What's All This Then? It's a weekly column where I - Dave "Da7e" Gonzales, a man with many opinions - dissect and report on the news and rumors surrounding superhero megafranchises.
This Week: It's Comic Con Week. Let's look at our superhero megafranchise future. There May Be Spoilers! Just Don't Yell At Me!
Good non-Thanos Lord!
It’s pre-Comic Con and honestly there’s so many little bits and pieces about all our superhero movie franchises that it’s been a full reading schedule of stuff and not a lot of time to focus on what we will or will not be seeing this weekend.
First up, happy National Batman Day.
Ok, there’s a lot of superhero movies on the horizon. A lot. As all the pieces start falling into place over the weekend, we’ll get a clearer picture of the ones we’re closest to and »
Movie News - The new 'Fantastic Four' will be ''different from other comic book films''. Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as 'The Avengers' and the 'X-Men' films. He told Latino-Review.com: ''We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the 'Fantastic Four' movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films.'' The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 'Fantastic Four' films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and »

Earlier this year, while promoting the second Captain America film, Chris Evans hinted that people shouldn’t expect to see him in superhero movies much longer. In fact, his real ambition was to direct, and he wasn’t speaking hypothetically. Once titled 1:30 Train and now titled Before We Go, his directorial debut was recently announced as one of the films that will premiere at this September’s Toronto Film Festival. According to the festival’s official release, “the story follows two strangers after their serendipitous meeting in Grand Central . Over the course of one night, they form an unlikely »

Though her Marvel character Peggy Carter, a love interest for Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in the WWII-set Captain America: The Winter Soldier, had of course aged into an old woman by the time Cap was thawed out of the ice and tasked with saving the world twice more in The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell isn’t done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. She’s toplining the ABC series Marvel’s Agent Carter, which will replace Marvel’s Agents of Shield at midseason, and it turns out that Atwell will be stopping in for a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well.
Funnily enough, Atwell has a night on the town with director Joss Whedon to thank for her Age of Ultron role:
“We went out drinking one night and he was like, ‘You know, it would be great to write something for you. »

Over the weekend, I had the chance to sit down with Marvel Studios president and uber-producer Kevin Feige, the architect behind the enormously successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, to discuss Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters on August 1. While you can check back for the full interview next week, the producer shared new details about Marvel's release strategy, how close they are to casting Doctor Strange and how they plan on ending each Phase with an Avengers sequel.
Marvel's highly successful Phase One culminated with the release of Marvel's The Avengers, and Phase Two is no different, coming to a close next year with Avengers: Age of Ultron. With Phase Three just around the corner, Ant-Man (July 17, 2015), Captain America 3 (May 6, 2016) and Doctor Strange have been confirmed, with The Avengers 3 almost certain to close out the phase. I asked Kevin Feige if they still plan on ending each of their future phases with Avengers sequels, »
#10. The Grand Budapest Hotel
Without a doubt, Anderson’s darkest film to date, this also has to be the richest and most complex of his films. A starry supporting cast whirls around the delectable Ralph Fiennes, treading throughout the director’s glorious off beat style. By now, many perhaps take Anderson’s visual mastery for granted, or even dismiss him, yet his work has only become more thrillingly accomplished.
A film completely set in a moving car with only the visage of Tom Hardy to interact with disembodied voices (one of which is Olivia Colman)? Abandon all fear of tediousness as you experience one of the most inventive and engaging experiments you’ll see this year. Hardy, if you’ve seen Bronson, obviously has no hard time sharing the screen with himself, and while it’s a more subdued performance here, this one’s not to miss.

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.
The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

The low key release of Snowpiercer is finding a pretty decent size audience after getting a release in limited theaters two weeks later, followed by a wide release and availability on nearly all VOD platforms last weekend. It's turned out to be a pretty big hit with Thompson on Hollywood learning from Harvey Weinstein, who battled with Bong Joon-ho over the final cut, that the film has pulled in $2 million in just one week from VOD releases. That's the kind of stuff that keeps changing the face of distribution. Now to explore the film and see what everyone is talking about, here's a video essay analyzing the film very well. Here's the 10-minute video essay on Snowpiercer from Press Play (via The Film Stage): The cast for Joon-ho Bong's Snowpiercer includes Chris Evans with Ed Harris, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Oscar winners Tilda Swinton & Octavia Spencer, »

As production continues on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still don't have too many confirmed story details regarding this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk, recently teased that Joss Whedon is at the top of his game, and that the Avengers are dealing with a lot of widespread hatred towards them after S.H.I.E.L.D. came crumbling down.
"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They're really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There's a lot of negativity towards them."
The actor also teased that his character Bruce Banner is »
