'Iron Man' Composer's Lawsuit Over Ghostface Killah Sampling Revived by Appeals Court

9 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

On Friday, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals gave Jack Urbont, composer of the "Iron Man Theme" on the 1960s television show The Marvel Super Heroes, another shot in a copyright dispute with Sony Music over sampling by rapper Ghostface Killer. The decision not only has something of interest for fans of Marvel comics and Wu Tang Clan, but also for those dealing with the complexity of ownership in entertainment. Urbont, whose later musical work includes That 70's Show, Oprah, 20/20 and The View, was asked by Marvel's Stan Lee in the 1960s to create music for the television show, and after reviewing comic books

These days, they've sadly been pushed aside by Marvel Comics due to their decision to focus on properties like The Avengers and Inhumans, but with decades worth of history behind them, there's no way the X-Men's legacy will ever be overlooked or forgotten. The team has featured literally hundreds of different members over the years and their adventures have resulted in the creation of some of the best villains ever seen within the »

With Marvel's Black Panther emerging as one of the most hotly anticipated films to come out of San Diego's Comic-Con, star Chadwick Boseman sat down with People to reveal what bringing the original black superhero to his first solo big screen adventure means to him, especially during the current racially charged mood in American society.

Karl Urban Teases His Skurge Look in Thor: Ragnarok

25 July 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2016 certainly isn't anything like the old days of Marvel Studios. When they first started shooting Iron Man way back in 2007, they notoriously banned certain bloggers from sharing a single image from the set. Now, as Thor 3 continues production, it seems like we're getting some kind of update, photo or piece of viral footage everyday. We've seen leading man Chris Hemsworth joking around on set with director Taika Waititi. We've seen Mark Ruffalo showing off his larger-than-normal Hulk fists as he spends his time toiling away in motion capture Hell. And now today, we get a first look at star Karl Urban as he teases his new villainous Skurge look in Thor: Ragnarok.

The actor is heading to Queensland, Australia to shoot the movie. He shared the photo of his recently shaved head on Twitter. While he doesn't really provide any kind of update about what he'll be shooting first, »

Watch Spider-Man: Homecoming Comic-Con Panel and Cast Interviews

24 July 2016 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After famously skipping Comic-Con last year, Marvel Studios more than made up for it this year with an incredible Hall H panel that shed plenty of light on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We already knew going into the Con that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy would be featured during the studio's Saturday panel, but we didn't know what other movies would be presented. One of the biggest surprises was when the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming flew in from Atlanta, despite being in the midst of production, to present the first footage from the movie. While we don't have that footage quite yet, we do have a number of video interviews with the stars.

During the Hall H panel last night, Marvel also unveiled new concept art featuring the main villain, Vulture, who also surfaced at the end of the footage shown to the Comic-Con crowd. The footage is set at the high school, »

If you want to go into Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 completely blind, you may want to look away now. Alternatively, scroll past Daphne - our spoiler squirrel - if you're up for learning some spoilery details...

Thor 3 Gets a New Ragnarok Logo

23 July 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the official Comic-Con schedule was released a few weeks ago, there weren't many details about Marvel Studios' Hall H panel on Saturday. We already knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would be part of the festivities, thanks to social media updates from directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson, but nothing else about the panel was known. Part of the festivities included the reveal of a new logo for Thor: Ragnarok, along with a unique skit put together by director Takika Waititi and a sizzle reel.

The logo debuted on Twitter, but we're not sure if this unique skit and will make its way online quite yet. The video is presented as a mini documentary that shows how stressed out Thor has become, and he has moved to New Zealand to become roommates with a guy named Darryl. There are scenes where Thor is talking with Bruce Banner, »

Mark Hamill’s Comic Book: The Movie Shows That Luke Skywalker is One of Us

21 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A love letter to Mark Hamill’s great Comic-Con set mockumentary.

When I was in college, some friends and I had a ritual we’d do on nights where several of us were bored. We’d grab my friend Joe’s high-8 camera and wander into the bowels of the library to shoot our own improvised movies. These were all done with editing-in-the-camera, meaning we shot in sequence, one shot at a time with no post-production work. We never started with a script, though by the end we were bringing along an array of costumes and props.

None of these were great films, but there was an infectious energy about them. The first film was just myself and Joe, and we took turns holding the camera depending on which of us was in the shot. We had fun but wouldn’t have repeated the experiment had the friends we showed it to not said, “When »

Stan Lee Reflects on His Successes and Regrets: "I Should Have Been Greedier"

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

After 75 years in the comic book business, Stan Lee has picked up his fair share of souvenirs. His handsomely shabby office in Beverly Hills is cluttered with cool superhero swag. There's a vintage Spider-Man pinball machine in one corner, a life-sized Spidey statue squatting in another, framed photos with multiple presidents (and Beatle Paul McCartney) on the walls and, of course, an army of action figures — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, a doll that looks vaguely like Stan Lee himself — patrolling the bookshelves. But propped on the floor, easy to overlook amid all the superhero

10 Famous People You Never Knew Were in The Marvel Cinematic Universe

17 July 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic book movie fans are probably the best at spotting cameos, as they’re always on the lookout for nods to the comics hidden in the films. Marvel aficionados, in particular, are naturals at this, as they know that Stan Lee will always turn up in a (generally) humorous minor role.

It’s not only Stan who pops up in Marvel movies, though. Over its thirteen films to date, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has squeezed in a number of familiar names into small roles. Some appeared before they were famous, while others were well-known beforehand but were stuck into small parts for laughs. Whatever the situation, many of these cameos can be easily missed by even the most eagled-eyed of viewers.

Just like there were numerous famous faces in Star Wars movies that you probably never caught, here are 10 well-known people that you most likely didn’t realize had appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

The Best Celebrity Movie Cameos

13 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As film fans we love nothing more than good celebrity cameos. For instance, comic creator Stan Lee has generated himself an entirely new career based around his appearances in pretty much every Marvel property known to man. He’s not the only famous face to pop-up unexpectedly, this week’s new release Keanu features a crafty appearance from the kitten’s namesake. It’s a genius scene that is sure to become one of our favourites over the coming years. Here are some of our others.

Ryan Reynolds, Ted

Ryan Reynolds appears briefly in the first Ted film as John’s work colleague Guy’s boyfriend. Reynolds doesn’t speak at all during his moments on screen but he somehow still manages to steal everyone that he’s in. Sadly, he didn’t return for Ted 2, though Patrick Warburton returned as Guy, this time with a new (and less »

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

12 July 2016 4:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On top of all the new releases this week in Marvel Unlimited, including the final issue of Secret Wars, I wanted to re-read a few issues of one of my favorite comics “Ms. Marvel”. Set in New Jersey, it details the rise of one Kamala Khan, bringing her from your average teenager dealing with all the pressures of being a young woman to, thanks to a cloud of Terrigan Mist, taking over the mantle of Ms. Marvel from Carol Danvers.

I fell in love with this comic from page one. Much like how Stan Lee presented Peter Parker in Amazing Fantasy #15 all those years ago, G. Willow Wilson and company present a character that anyone can relate to. She’s awkward, dealing with the feelings young kids get when they first realize others can be attractive. She has family that she feels is overbearing but she loves them nonetheless. She »

Mark Ruffalo Hulks Out in New Thor 3 Set Video

12 July 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you may know, Thor: Ragnarok is currently shooting in Queensland, Australia. Over the course of the past two weeks, we've seen star Chris Hemsworth offer a look at the set, his own private roller coaster and the hilarious prank he pulled on new director Taika Waititi. Now Mark Ruffalo is getting in on the fun. He's shared a behind-the-scenes video. And it proves that Hulk is back, and he's angry!

Courtesy of Twitter, Mark Ruffalo shows off the biggest pair of Hulk hands you've ever seen as he Hulks out on set. We're not sure how much Bruce Banner will be present in the movie, especially since most of it takes place in the cosmos. Though we do know that Bruce and Hulk will struggle to come to terms with each other, and one of the side stories will see the Awol scientist trying to deal with his big green alter ego. »
