In a couple of weeks, Comic-Con International will be upon us again, and with it a flurry of trailers and casting and new film announcements that will fuel fandom’s conversations until 2017, when it all happens again. On the Marvel Studios side, they’re obviously going to be showcasing Doctor Strange, since it’s their next big release, but what else can we hope to see from the McU? The First Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 This has all but been confirmed by director James Gunn and It feels right to reveal Guardians info at Sdcc, since that’s where we learned the first one was part of Marvel’s plan. We have no real hint of the plot of the sequel yet, so that’d be a pretty important reveal. Other things fans are waiting for...

Need a laugh? Here's our guide to 25 comedies that are on Netflix UK now, and are well worth your time...
Putting aside all of the chunter about VPNs and rising subscription costs for a moment, there are more hidden gems to be discovered on Netflix UK than you might expect, and we've been combing through the streaming site's current catalogue to find some of the most underappreciated comedies on offer.
We've come up with this fairly broad selection of films that varies on several fronts. We've picked out a mix of belly laughers and dark comedies, with a couple of dramedies thrown in for good measure. They're not all big Hollywood comedies, but neither are they all films that you're hearing about for the first time, though we've tried to order them according to how well known they may or may not be.

Yoga Hosers (2016)
Directed By Kevin Smith
Starring Johnny Depp, Lily-Rose Depp, Harley Quinn Smith, Adam Brody, Justin Long, Natasha Lyonne, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Kevin Smith, Tony Hale, Ralph Garman, Tony Hale, Harley Morenstein, Tyler Posey, Austin Butler, Jason Mewes and Vanessa Paradis.
Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.
As a director, Kevin Smith has taken a rather divisive career turn in recent years. Gone are the days when the Fatman on Batman was an indie darling churning out critically acclaimed hits like Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma, and in his place is a podcaster who no longer cares about film conventions with outings like Red State and Tusk. This is a director who said he was retiring from the game to focus on podcasts, and now finds himself prepping another sequel to Clerks, »

Last month, Marvel Comics fans lost their collective minds when they read (or read about) Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, where it was revealed that Captain America was an agent of Hydra. Not only was it revealed that Steve Rogers has been working with Hydra, but according to the comic, he had been recruited to be an agent of the evil organization back in the 20s. The internet went absolutely crazy over the news, but now everyone can finally calm down. Or possibly get upset for a completely different reason.
Be warned, there are huge spoilers ahead in this article for Captain America: Steve Rogers #2, so if you haven't read it and want to be surprised, come back and read this afterwards. In Steve Rogers #1, it looked as though Captain America had murdered his partner and then muttered the words "Hail Hydra," which sent the collective web on an all out rage spiral. »
The first time I ever heard Kayo Dot was in 2008. I was at Vintage Vinyl, doing my habitual scanning of their endcap offerings, handpicked by the staff. The striking cover of the digipak caught my eye immediately, as did the yellow, hand-written note beneath it: “New project from Toby Driver, the mastermind of Maudlin Of The Well.” While I’d never heard Maudlin of the Well directly, I had seen the band mentioned repeatedly at Traversing, a fansite for my favorite band Dredg. Maudlin of the Well was noted for their incredibly rich concept albums, packed with enigmatic lyrics and equally mysterious musical journeys but actually getting a copy of one of their albums, even online, was an arduous process. Kayo Dot’s second album, however, was the first to be released on Hydra Head Records, home of the legendary post-metal group Isis and headed by its prolific frontman Aaron Turner, »

James Gunn's brother and cousin, Brian and Mark respectively, are teaming to pen the film adaptation of Mark Millar and Frank Quitely's comic book series "Jupiter Legacy" for producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
The story follows a group of aging superheroes (the Union) who used their powers for the greater good of all. It follows the offspring kids who haven't really lived up to the legacy of the golden age of superheroes - more interested in fame and fortune.
The two Gunns previously penned "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island". The first volume of the series is being offered to fans for free tomorrow for 24 hours only.

Mark and Brian Gunn, the cousin and brother, respectively, of filmmaker James Gunn, are adapting Jupiter Legacy for producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura for the big screen. This as word comes that the first volume of the popular Mark Millar-Frank Quitely comic book series is being offered to fans for free tomorrow for 24 hours only here, which should make its fan base very happy. Since revamping many of the Marvel characters, Millar has been creating several franchises: Captain… »
"...'Nebula', an alien super-villain, pirate and mercenary, operating in outer space, was created for Marvel Comics by writer Roger Stern and illustrator John Buscema, debuting in Marvel's 'Avengers' #257 (July 1985).
"She uses 'blasters' worn on her wrists that fire concussive blasts of unknown energy that can incinerate a human being almost instantly. She also wears a device that enables her to disguise her appearance, either through illusion-casting or through molecular rearrangement of her body and clothing.
"Converted by 'Doctor Mandibus' into a 'cyborg', Nebula was given an artificial left eye, left arm, and left shoulder, with the left upper quarter of her head and part of her right hip sheathed in metal..."

With production now underway on Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel legend Stan Lee has offered his seal of approval to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man following his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut earlier this year in Captain America: Civil War.
“Oh, he’s wonderful!” said Lee during an appearance at Denver Comic-Con (via ComicBookResources). “I was with him the other day. He is great! I can’t believe it. It’s as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man, and it turned out to be him.”
Having been with Holland recently, Lee seemingly confirmed his customary cameo for Spider-Man: Homecoming, going on to state that: “Unfortunately, this will frustrate you a little, I have a favorite but I can’t tell you what it is, because it hasn’t appeared yet. I did it — I had to go to… where did I go? Somewhere on the East Coast in Georgia. Atlanta! I don’t know, »

Earlier today, we reported that production has gotten under way on Spider-Man: Homecoming, with star Tom Holland sending out the first photo from the set in Atlanta. We also learned that three new actors have joined the cast in unspecified roles. Now we have word of yet another casting addition, and even more photos from the set. Comedian/actor Hannibal Buress has signed on, while star Tom Holland and several of his co-stars were spotted as filming began in Atlanta today.
The photos surfaced at Just Jared, featuring our first look at Tom Holland, Zendaya Coleman and Tony Revolori. We don't know much about what was being filmed today, but one of Marvel's other filmmakers, James Gunn, shared a new photo with himself, Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, along with a message wishing the production the best of luck. Here's what the filmmaker had to say on Facebook below.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Director James Gunn announced via social media that production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been completed. While answering questions prompted by his announcement, he said: "I'm tired & I'm not sure I want to do [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3]. Two completely different things news outlets have conflated for clicks. … I'm Always tired at the end of a shoot. It has nothing to do with whether I agree to do [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3] or something else." [Twitter] The Saint: Simon Templar will return to the big screen. The character, also known as The Saint, was created by author Leslie Charteris in a series of books published between 1928 and 1963, adapted for television in a show that...

Cheers should be had all around, as Spider-man: Homecoming begins production in hot-lanta (Atlanta). James Gunn took to Facebook to announce that the film's director Jon Watts and main star Tom Holland were essentially the best men for the job. The Facebook post sort of serves as a baton that Gunn was passing onto Watts, as he has just wrapped production of his film Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Gunn is one of the best and most supportive directors currently employed by Marvel Studios, so it isn't exactly a shock that he is going to be vocal about his love and admiration for the upcoming Spider flick.
But the web crawling news doesn't stop there, as three young actors have been cast in undisclosed roles. Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and J.J. Totah have been added, and if I had to guess what type of characters they would play, »

Last month Marvel kicked off Phase 3 of its Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War, which introduced both Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Tom Holland will return in his first standalone movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, which has been set for release on July 7, 2017, and judging the overwhelmingly positive response from fans, this next chapter in the Spidey saga could be a blockbuster in its own right. Over the weekend, Marvel legend Stan Lee offered his thoughts on the new Spider-Man, issuing high praise for the young actor.
The new Spider-Man made his debut halfway through Captain America: Civil War, where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) paid the youngster a visit at his Brooklyn home. Tony recruited this young high school student to fight on his team during Civil War, and it seems their relationship will continue in Spider-Man: Homecoming, since Robert Downey Jr. has been confirmed »
Marvel has released the synopsis (via Stitch Kingdom) for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange. What caught my eye was the synopsis for James Gunn's sci-fi sequel, which says that their new mission is locating Peter Quill's father and that they will be introducing some "fan-favorite characters from the classic comics". Hmm wonder who that can be? Mantis?
Have a look at the synopsis below, and sound off on the comments.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange
Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe. »

Via The Hollywood Reporter, relative newcomers Isabella Amara (Melissa McCarthy's The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (The Land) and Jj Totah (Glee, Other People) have joined the cast of Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming. Of course, as with all the recent cast additions, the identity of their characters has not been disclosed. However, given their relatively young ages, it looks as if these characters will be more of Peter's Midtown High contemporaries. To date, the full cast for the film includes Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Zandaya, Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green, Kenneth Choi, Tony Revolori, Michael Barbieri and Laura Harrier. Shooting is expected to commence before the end of June at Atlanta's Pinewood Studios.

Last week, a popular fan theory about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arose. And it positioned the idea that Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone are all playing the original Guardians first introduced in the Marvel comic books way back in 1969. Director James Gunn, who is usually quite outspoken on social media, has not personally chimed in on this idea, but today we get the official plot synopsis for the sequel. And boy, does it ever sound like this is what might be happening. Here is the story as it stand, with this short teaser promising the arrival of some classic Marvel characters.
"Set to the backdrop of 'Awesome Mixtape #2,' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill's true parentage. »
With Comic-Con right around the corner now, Marvel is starting to shine the spotlight on two of its most anticipated upcoming films: Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While James Gunn’s next space adventure is still a ways away, the Sorcerer Supreme’s first big screen outing is quickly approaching and it’s looking to be one of the best comic book movies of 2016.
Today, the studio has released a new plot synopsis for each film, and while neither are terribly revealing, there are a few interesting tidbits to point out here.

Marvel (via Stitch Kingdom) has provided us with synopses for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange. The latter is really just an updated version of the previous breakdown and doesn't offer up a whole lot of new info, but the first synopsis for James Gunn's sci-fi sequel might be a lot more revealing. It teases former foes becoming friends (most likely Yondu), and the introduction of some "fan-favourite characters from the classic comics". It's safe to assume one of them is Mantis, but could we see some other Marvel mainstays make their debut in this movie?
