Marvel wanted Spider-Man for Avengers: Infinity War as well as Captain America: Civil War

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Early in the Sony hack, it was revealed that Marvel Studios had tried to reach a deal with Sony to cameo in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, and now some new details have emerged via Twitter detailing how Marvel wanted to use Spidey in the storyline, as well as revealing that he would have featured in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War.

In an email conversation from November, it is revealed that Sony would have launched a new Spider-Man series following Civil War, which wouldn’t continue the plot from the Captain America sequel but would take place a world where the events had happened and superheroes are divided into two groups.

As for Civil War itself, it would have seen Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recruiting Spider-Man, who would have met the likes of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Captain America (Chris Evans) before returning back home to Aunt May for his first solo movie. »

The 14 Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Movies of 2014

16 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Thanks to the continued popularity of superhero movies and Ya literature adaptations and now the reignited interest in monsters, the joined genres of science fiction and fantasy are giving us what seems to be more releases than ever. It helps that computer effects are cheaper and easier for the benefit of indies and that so many makers of shorts see simple yet impressively visualized stories involving robots, dystopias and alien invasions as the perfect calling card for Hollywood. The plethora of works dealing with the unreal and as yet impossible means that while last year a Hobbit movie made the cut, this year the final chapter did not. It means that a new sci-fi film from Terry Gilliam, my longtime favorite director, also fell below our limit of the top 14. And it also means there was just too much out there for me to get around to. Apologies to Space Station 76, The Hunger Games »

The top 10 films of 2014: Under The Skin

17 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's why Under The Skin, from director Jonathan Glazer, was one of the best films we saw this year...

Over the past few weeks, Den of Geek writers have been voting for their favourite films of the year. In 10th place is operatic gangster action banquet, The Raid 2. Here's why...

9. Under The Skin

In Under the Skin, Scarlett Johansson is a man eater. I was going to say 'literally', but it’s not really quite eating, at least not as we know it.

I know of two idioms that use the words ‘under the skin,’ and each is very useful in talking about Jonathan Glazer’s remarkable picture.

First, there’s that notion we typically summon for what annoys or bedevils us, things that create an itch you can’t scratch, that ‘get under your skin.’ In this movie, it’s images that you can’t unsee, sounds you can’t unhear, »

Behind-the Scenes Photo from Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book

19 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few days ago we got our first look at some beautiful concept art that was created for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book. It gave us a solid idea of the visual style and tone that the director is going for, and it looked perfect. It seemed to have that same feel as the animated film we all grew up with. Today we have a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the film that Favreau posted on Facebook. It features the main human character in the story, Mowgli, who is drenched in shadow. The character is played by newcomer Neel Sethi. 

The story follows Mowgli, a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who "embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known."

The film features the voices of Ben Kingsley (The BoxtrollsIron Man 3 »

Joss Whedon talks Avengers: Age of Ultron, introducing The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

17 December 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.

” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

Justin Chang’s Top 10 Films of 2014

17 December 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Assembling a year-end top-10 list has always been a personal, even self-indulgent, ritual, a way of disguising a whimsical ranking of favorites as a carefully curated declaration of personal taste. At the risk of making things even more solipsistic than usual, let me begin by noting that the fraught relationship between artists and critics provided 2014 with one of its most compelling movie themes, with critics themselves — food critics, art critics, theater critics and, yes, film critics — figuring among the year’s most favored characters. And by favored, of course, I mean mocked, loathed and misunderstood at every turn.

In one of the most talked-about scenes in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s virtuoso backstage farce “Birdman,” a washed-up movie star named Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) comes face to face with a notoriously nasty New York Times theater critic, Tabitha Dickinson (Lindsay Duncan), who calmly informs him that she’s going to eviscerate his new Broadway play, »

Jon Favreau Shares Photos from Disney's 'Jungle Book'

17 December 2014 9:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in Septmeber, The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau posted a number of selfies with cast members Bill Murray and Christopher Walken on his official Facebook page. Over the past few days, the filmmaker has released even more behind-the-scenes images, featuring Scarlett Johansson voicing her role as Kaa in the recording booth, as well as Kermit Ruffins, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and the filmmaker himself. We also get a behind-the-scenes shot of newcomer Neel Sethi on the set, portraying Mowgli.

These images come just a few days after Disney unveiled new concept art and the logo for this adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's beloved novel, which centers on Mowgli, a young boy who is raised in the woods by wolves and goes on a journey of discovery when he's forced to abandon his own home. Neel Sethi will be the only actor seen in live-action, with the rest of the characters portrayed through CGI. »

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan.  The film also stars  Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L.

10 Worst Female Movie Characters Of 2014

17 December 2014 2:17 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Let’s be honest: in terms of screenwriting, women tend to get the short end of the stick. It’s not so much a deliberate effort to negate women, it’s just on some level the (normally male) writer’s fundamental lack of understanding on how to write female characters. For every hundred great male roles, there’s just a few well-written and nuanced female ones.

However, if you were to cherry-pick a few headlines from this past year then things are looking up for women in movies. The action thriller Lucy, in which Scarlett Johansson essentially obtains superhuman powers, grossed over $330,000,000 worldwide. Meanwhile, director Joss Whedon revealed that there would be four major female roles in Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.

If only these were signs of some kind of larger progress. While this year has seen its fair share of great women characters (Reese Witherspoon’s »

Marion Cotillard Wins -- Twice -- in Our 2014 Film Critics' Poll

16 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

What kind of circle is time again? A year after blowing the doors off our annual critics’ poll, golden boy Matthew McConaughey won just a single vote for his turn in the loudest movie of the year, Christopher Nolan’s tears-in-space effort Interstellar, which has tied with the unprescient Transcendence as 2014’s worst film. (Transcendence dreamed that Johnny Depp’s character would take over every screen in the world — that didn’t happen.) But his margin of victory lives on, this year in the form of Marion Cotillard, who wins best actress twice: first for the Dardenne brothers’ vote-gathering drama Two Days, One Night, then besting second-place Scarlett Johansson (Under the Skin) with her turn in Ja »

There was a baby boom in Hollywood this year, and those babies' mothers had a lot to say. ETonline breaks down the greatest new mother quotes of 2014!

1. Eva Mendes on vomit and the struggles of being a baby:

"I've learned that it's way harder to be a baby. Everything is a struggle for her. For instance, I haven't thrown up since the '90s and she's thrown up twice since we started this interview. Motherhood is cake compared to what it's like to be a baby." – The Violet Files 

Mendes welcomed baby Esmerelda with Ryan Gosling on Sept. 12.

2. Olivia Wilde on the selflessness of motherhood:
