Doctor Strange has been described as “the mightiest magician in the cosmos” and “the most »

The Sixth Sense Kid Turns Nazi for Yoga Hosers

12 September 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'Yoga Hosers' marks the second installment in filmmaker Kevin Smith's new 'True North Trilogy'. His immediate follow-up to his twisted body horror 'Tusk', in cinemas next Friday, the movie teams up two 15 year old girls (played by Kev's daughter Harley Quinn and Johnny Depp's little 'un Lily-Rose Melody Depp) with an old hunter who join forces to help defeat an ancient evil presence. And of all the on-set images we thought we'd get a glimpse at during production we were not expecting to see Haley Joel Osment (below) in character as a Nazi politician. Osment returns alongside many of his 'Tusk' cast mates including Justin Long, Michael Parks and the sexy Genesis Rodriguez. 'Yoga Hosers' also stars Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach, Harley Morenstein, Natasha Lyonne, Tyler Posey, Adam Brody, Austin Butler, Jason Mewes, Tony Hale ('Veep'), Stan Lee »

11 September 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Currently being shot in Los Angeles is the second film in Kevin Smith's Canada-set "True North Trilogy," which will star much the same cast as this year's Tusk. That includes former child star Haley Joel Osment, who has undergone a big time makeover for the film!

Head over to the UK's Daily Mail to see on-set images of the 26-year-old actor as a greasy Nazi and marvel at how unrecognizable he is in the role!

The cast for Yoga Hosers also includes Michael Parks, Justin Long, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach, and Harley Morenstein. New to the cast are Stan Lee, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey, and Jason Mewes.

Yoga Hosers, written by Smith, centers on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. When »

Stan Lee Rants about Marvel Superhero Ice Cream Bars

11 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

"Every Marvel hero and villain should be a delicious ice cream treat!"

In the most recent episode of Stan's Rants, Stan Lee goes off on Marvel superhero ice cream bars. He starts his rant off with the Spider-Man bar with the bubble-gum eyes being the best, and then he just goes off. Is Lee starting to lose his marbles a little bit? You decide after you watch the video.

There’s still a little over a week to go before the release of Tusk, but Kevin Smith is already busy shooting his next film Yoga Hosers, which sees two teenage clerks (played by Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp) teaming up with a legendary man-hunter (played by Depp) to battle an ancient evil. We’ve already seen an image of Smith with his two leads [see here], as well as a glimpse at Stan Lee’s cameo [see here], and now we have a couple of set photos featuring Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense) as an overweight Nazi. Check them out…

Is Denzel Washington Too Old to Play 'Black Panther'?

6 September 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If we're to believe the ramblings of Stan Lee, Marvel is gearing up to introduce Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe soon. And while actors such as Djimon Hounsou, Chadwick Boseman and John Boyega have all thrown their hat in the ring to play the character, one man stands above the rest as a true legend. And that is Denzel Washington. Sadly, he may be too old to take on the role.

Denzel Washington recently conducted a Reddit Ama on Friday for his upcoming action thriller The Equalizer, where he joked about the idea of possibly playing T'Challa on the big screen. CinemaBlend later caught up with the actor to get his real take on possibly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if it happens, it will probably be in a role similar to Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This is what he had to say:

"I'm probably getting too old. »

Do Marvel Comics Exist Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

5 September 2014 5:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the past month, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been going head-to-head at the box office, taking turns besting each other for that coveted number one spot. In an interesting bit of timing, Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, makes a Turtles reference early in his film. Being a child of the 80s, this makes sense. But being a character within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, does it? Is it possible that Marvel Comics themselves exist within this world we're watching play out on the big screen?

Let's say Marvel Comics do not exist. Captain America can't stroll into 7-11 and pick up the latest issue of Spider-Man or X-Men (which might make sense, since those are at other studios and the characters don't currently reside in this universe as laid out by Marvel Studios). That also means that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might not exist there, »

Stan Lee’s Cut: An Appreciation of Filmmakers on Social Media

5 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Journalism isn’t what it used to be. That’s what any old hat will tell you. In this 24/7 world of interconnected data tubes and hashtags, it’s easy for a small rumor to become a big story in a matter of hours, sometimes minutes. Me personally, I still wait for things to show up in my local newspaper. I’m kidding, what’s a newspaper? Earlier this week, a perfect example presented itself in the form of a story about the year’s highest grossing film, Guardians of the Galaxy. According to reports, a planned cameo for Stan Lee was axed by the overlords at Disney due to its somewhat racy nature. As many of our friends around the web reported, the plan that director James Gunn had for Stan’s appearance was as follows: In the scene where the Guardians meet The Collector (played by Benicio Del Toro), there was to be a little bit »

Marvel superhero movies that never got the greenlight

4 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...

Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).

On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts. 

However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »

James Gunn explains Stan Lee's original 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cameo

4 September 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) It was no surprise to Marvel fans that Stan Lee made a cameo in "Guardians of the Galaxy," but the cameo was originally supposed to be under a very different context. The film's director James Gunn took to Instagram to post a photo of Lee's originally intended cameo appearance, which was filmed with a Stan Lee lookalike with the intention of digitally inserting Lee's head later. The original scene saw Lee as a part of The Collector's museum, with the legendary creator "flipping off" Groot from inside a display case. "We shot this footage with a Stan Lee double because Stan wasn’t able to come to the UK at the time," Gunn said on Instagram. "The plan was to shoot Stan in the same lighting when I was back in La, and we’d digitally replace the double’s head with Stan’s actual head (not quite as »

Here's The Full Story Behind The Aborted Stan Lee Cameo Including Picture Evidence

4 September 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Earlier this week, we found out Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn originally wanted Stan Lee.s standard cameo to involve a pretty hilarious middle finger. The scene would have taken place in the Collector.s Museum, but it was ultimately cut. You can check out a picture of the unused footage below. Those of you with sharp eyes are probably thinking to yourself, "Hey, that doesn.t look quite like Stan Lee!" That.s because it.s not. On the day the proposed cameo was supposed to be shot, Stan Lee wasn.t able to make it over to the United Kingdom. So, it was shot with a look-a-like with the intention of reshooting it with the same lighting later. But that never happened. Initially, reports swirled that Disney wanted no part of the cameo because executives didn.t want to see the beloved Marvel spokesman flipping the »

Concept Photo of Stan Lee's Original Cameo in Guardians Of The Galaxy

4 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director James Gunn recently released a concept photo on Instagram, showing fans what Stan Lee's original cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy might have looked like. I just want to point out that's not Lee in the photo. It's just a stand in. The original cameo idea was recently revealed by the director at Dragon-Con, but unfortunately, it didn't make it in the film. Here's a description of what Gunn said at the con:

"One of the losing battles regarded Stan Lee's original cameo in the film. Originally, Gunn had planned to have Lee in one of the Collector's exhibits. Groot would then look at the exhibit aghast, to which Lee would flick off the large tree creature."

Here's an updated explanation from Gunn of why the cameo didn't work that was posted yesterday. Gunn posted it after I wrote my original article, which is why my facts were off. »

James Gunn Reveals Stan Lee's Original 'Guardians' Cameo

4 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Some news broke this week about Stan Lee's original cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy - flipping off Groot in the Collector's Museum - since James Gunn talked about it at a convention. Apparently, someone blogging about the story suggested that Disney cut the cameo, which was not the case.

Taking to social media to clear everything up, Gunn posted this photo and the below explanation of the original cut cameo:

At a panel on Sunday at Dragoncon, I talked about a deleted @realstanlee cameo in Guardians, and promised the folks there I’d post a photo on Instagram - so here it is! As you can see, this is not Stan, but a double. In the original cut of the film, when the Guardians enter the Collector’s museum, Rocket looks over and sees Cosmo the dog in one display case, Quill looks over into another display case »

Check Out Stan Lee's Alternate Cameo in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

4 September 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Yesterday, there were some reports going around about an alternate cameo that Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee would have had in Guardians of the Galaxy instead of what ended up on the big screen. Rather than being called an old pervert by Rocket Raccoon, the comic creator was almost part of The Collector's expansive collection of aliens, creatures and other goodies. When our heroes arrive in The Collector's lair, they would have encountered Lee in one of the containers, not unlike the Dark Elf or Chitauri soldier we can see in the background (or the end credits cameo), and he would have flipped off Groot. So what happened? Reports said Disney didn't like this cameo, but director James Gunn cleared things up with this photo: Gunn wrote this to accompany the photo: At a panel on Sunday at Dragoncon, I talked about a deleted [Stan Lee] cameo in Guardians, and promised the »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Deleted Stan Lee Cameo Revealed!

4 September 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into a Marvel movie, we can always expect two things. One: We're sure to have a good time. And two: A Stan Lee cameo. It just wouldn't be a Marvel movie without Stan the Man showing up in some capacity, and Guardians of the Galaxy was no exception. In fact, the creator of the Marvel universe as we know it today was set to appear in two different scenes in this sci-fi epic. Only one of them made it into the movie. Direrctor James Gunn now shares a photo from the deleted Stan Lee cameo featuring a stand-in, and explains why it's not in the finished film.

Take a look at the image from James Gunn's Instagram, and then read on for more details:

The scene in question actually has Stan Lee sitting inside the Collector's Museum. Visiting Dragon Con, director James Gunn explained the scene in detail for the first time, »
