Will Brie Larson Rock the Iconic Captain Marvel Mohawk?

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Any comic book character that is well established will go through a number of different costumes, hairstyles and other looks throughout the years, and Captain Marvel is no different. With the stand alone Captain Marvel movie coming in just over two years, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, it might be quite some time before we see the official Captain Marvel costume, but fans don't want to wait that long. While promoting her upcoming thriller Kong: Skull Island, Brie Larson was asked whether or not her iconic character Carol Danvers will be sporting a mohawk or not.

While Captain Marvel doesn't even have a director yet, it is believed that Brie Larson was cast so early so she could make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the highly-anticipated Avenger: Infinity War, which recently started production. Still, the script is being worked on by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and »

Brie Larson comments on her Captain Marvel hairstyle and love for the character

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With all Marvel movies there exists a massive amount of speculation and hype, and the Brie Larson-headlined Captain Marvel is certainly no different, with fans eager to know any and all details about the project.

Speaking to IGN to discuss her new film Kong: Skull Island, the Oscar-winning Room star has been discussing the much-speculated state of her character Carol Danvers’ hairstyle, stating that: “I can’t say anything… I feel like this is a big conversation and everyday I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad”.

Larson definitely seems to understand the monumental pressure by such an important decision.

Jokes aside, it does come across that the actress gets the passion fans have for these characters »

Brie Larson: Captain Marvel Will Be A “Bridge Between Two Worlds”

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As Academy Award winner Brie Larson has been hitting the promotional circuit to talk about her new film, Kong: Skull Island, she has faced the inevitable slew of questions about Captain Marvel – the planned Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that will see the actress take on the titular role. In conversation with IGN, Larson expressed her passion for the character, and for the opportunity to create something new in the almost ten-year-old franchise.

“Just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go to Earth and go to Space and that her own personal place is in the littlest place in between where Earth ends and space begins is hers is so moving to me. I’ve been so inspired going through all the comics and reading them right now, it’s what I’ve been doing on the side and I’m just amazed. »

Godzilla 2 Gets Kyle Chandler as Millie Bobby Brown's Dad

21 February 2017 5:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown joined the cast of Warner Bros. and Legendary's sequel Godzilla: King of Monsters, another Netflix star has come aboard. Kyle Chandler, who stars in the streaming service's hit drama series Bloodline, has signed on to play the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character. No details have been given for this father-daughter duo quite yet, but we could learn more soon since production will begin in the next few months.

Variety broke the news of this casting, along with the news that several of the original Godzilla stars such as Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson will not be back for this sequel, although Ken Watanabe is expected to reprise his role as scientist Ishiro Serizawa. His inclusion does make sense, since he is part of the Monarch organization, which is also featured in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island »

Emma Watson is further proving that she is perfect for the role of Belle in the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney animated film. From the costume, to her sweet voice, Watson is a spitting image of the animated Belle - minus the whole animated part - and the nostalgia is off the charts!

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on, audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

Brie Larson, Ben Wheatley and the cast of Free Fire talk their new genre filmBrie Larson, Ben Wheatley and the cast of Free Fire talk their new genre filmAdriana Floridia2/20/2017 9:01:00 Am

Brie Larson has a big year ahead of her.

The Oscar-winning actress has quite a few films lined up for 2017 including Kong: Skull Island, The Glass Castle, her directorial debut Unicorn Store, and the highly anticipated new film from Ben Wheatley, Free Fire.

We caught Free Fire at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and can whole-heartedly say it's a super fun time at the movies. The film is set in a warehouse in Boston in 1978, where two gangs participating in a weapons sale end up in an epic shooting battle. Violent, vulgar and outrageous, Free Fire is probably Wheatley's most accessible film to date.

We caught up with Larson and her co-stars as well as »

"The Mighty Captain Marvel"

19 February 2017 6:36 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek Marvel Comics' "The Mighty Captain Marvel" #2, written by Margaret Stohl and illustrated by Ramon Rosanas, with covers by Elizabeth Torque, Mike McKone and Joe Jusko, available February 22, 2017, in support of Marvel Studios' upcoming "Captain Marvel" stand-alone feature film, starring Brie Larson ("Room") as 'Carol Danvers':

"...for someone like 'Carol Danvers', being super famous isn't exactly enjoyable -- she'd rather be focused on her job as commander of 'Alpha Flight Space Station' than worried about who's playing her on the new 'Captain Marvel TV' show.

"So when her crew discovers that a shady character is hunting for alien children, Carol jumps on the case..."

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

The King Is Unleashed In 55 Magnificent New Hi-Res Stills From Kong: Skull Island

19 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In just a few short weeks, Legendary will launch the epic second chapter in their burgeoning MonsterVerse with Jordan Vogt-RobertsKong: Skull Island, a film that should firmly re-establish King Kong as one of cinema's greatest monsters. In other news, it appears as though Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) will not reprise her role as Mason Weaver in 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong. On the recent press tour for her upcoming film, she shared the news with Nuke The Fridge with a simple "No, I"m not" when asked about her potential involvement. This probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise as Skull Island takes place in 1973 and the crossover movie will likely take place in present day.  Check out fifty-five magnificent new hi-resolution stills below: Kong: Skull Island reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Samuel L. Jackson thinks Nick Fury could appear in Captain Marvel, but not Black Panther

19 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having sat out Captain America: Civil War, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will make his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year as part of Avengers: Infinity War, and the star has been chatting to We Got This Covered about whether we can expect to see him popping up anywhere else in Phase Three.

“I’d love to do a Nick Fury movie,” said Jackson. “I’m always open and game. But they got Infinity Wars, two movies to do there, and after that there’s Brie Larson’s movie Captain Marvel, which maybe Nick will be part of. Also, I asked them, ‘So you’re doing Black Panther and the only black character in the Marvel Universe is not showing up?’ And they’re like, ‘Nick Fury is not in Wakanda!’ How can he not know the other black superhero on the planet? How the hell does that work? »

Nick Fury to Return in Captain Marvel?

18 February 2017 2:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe can be a complicated place to keep track of, with so many characters bouncing in and out of various films. One of the major players is Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who was first introduced in the now-infamous post-credit scene in the very first McU movie, Iron Man. Fans last saw Nick Fury in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, although he skipped out on Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There are rumors he may be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, though that seems unlikely since most of the movie is believed to be set in the cosmos. Surprisingly, the actor revealed that his beloved Nick Fury character actually won't be showing up in Black Panther. Instead, he'll probably be making his presence known in Captain Marvel. And he's definitely in Infinity War.

Black Panther recently started filming, but when the full cast list was unveiled last month, »
