The Collector is set to return to the Marvel cinematic universe, in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2...
We didn't really get as much as we thought of Benicio del Toro's The Collector in James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy movie. Especially after he was teased in the post-credits sting of Thor: The Dark World, it seemed he was set up for bigger things. Yet the character did his job, and had seemingly moved on.
Lots of actors are returning, of course, for the Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel. As well as Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan (along with the voice work of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel), it's now been revealed that del Toro - currently featuring in the wonderful Sicario - is going to be back too.
This week we review Dr. Oblivion’s Guide To Teenage Dating Volume 1, by Jeff Pina. It’s the first three sold out issues (plus extras & a couple one-shots) about Dr. Oblivion, super villain And dad of a teenage daughter…who happens to be dating the town’s superhero. Spoiler Alert: We absolutely love it! But you’ll want to watch the video anyway because you’ll learn a couple things like how Maddy is very protective over Black Widow’s superiority over all other female comic role models and how Anya will find any excuse to talk about Park and Rec so that she can steer the conversation to Chris Pratt.
Oh, and by the way….here’s the link to read the first part of Dr. Oblivion’s Guide to Teenage Dating

The director wanted to use the term as the name of an alien species in the sequel - until he was informed that it is apparently similar to the word meaning "clitoris" in Icelandic.

However, in a Facebook post the director explained that the matter has been resolved, and the Marvel legal department are now fine with the idea.

Finally, a story about how the Internet did some good for a change! Last month, the ever-transparent director James Gunn shared an amusing story on his Facebook page, revealing that Marvel's legal team wouldn't clear an obscure alien race from the comics known as Sneepers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The director revealed that the studio wouldn't grant him clearance because the word sneeper literally means "clitoris" in the Icelandic language. The filmmaker posted an update on his social media site today, revealing that, because of the influx of articles about the Sneepers' exclusion, they have reversed their stance, and now there will be "at least one Sneeper" in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Long before Guardians of the Galaxy became a massive hit at the box office last summer, many fans were wondering who would actually play these diverse characters. Bradley Cooper was the last actor announced, and many were surprised that director James Gunn chose him to voice the snarky raccoon, but he ended up becoming a fan favorite. Director James Gunn is currently in Atlanta, entering pre-production on the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and during some downtime yesterday, the filmmaker held a live video Q&A session through his Facebook page. The director dropped a very interesting tidbit, revealing that comedy legend Danny DeVito actually tried out to voice Rocket in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Responding to a suggestion that DeVito could replace Cooper in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Gunn said: "Not gonna happen.
When you think about it, it makes total sense. In a Facebook Q&A session, director James Gunn revealed that Danny DeVito tested for the role of Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy and explains why he eventually went with Bradley Cooper.
“In all honesty, Danny DeVito is one of the voices we tried out, but Danny DeVito is an older man now and Rocket is not an older man, he’s a younger man,” Gunn explains. “And Danny DeVito’s voice just wouldn’t work.”
When asked if he would ever think of re-casting Cooper, he simply said, “not gonna happen.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will begin filming in February ahead of a release on April 28th 2017 in the UK and on May 5th in the States. »

No offense to Taylor Swift's gal (and guy) pals, but a new foursome is giving Swifty some fierce competition in the #squadgoals department.
Aziz Ansari, Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chris Pratt all hung out together this weekend in Atlanta, and to our great disappointment, we weren't invited. But thanks to the power of social media, we can (digitally) join in on their fun.
Ansari posted a video to Instagram (or a "short film," if you will) in which he swings on a swing while his "Parks and Rec" costar Pratt stands nearby, giving his best blue steel. The quick clip, entitled "hi guys" (we're guessing because that's what Ansari shouts as he swings back and forth), also has some major star power behind the scenes, according to Ansari: Lawrence directed, Schumer served as director of photography, and Ansari, Pratt, Schumer, and Schumer's sister and writing partner, Kim Caramele, »

Say, what's that Amy Schumer doing today? Hanging out with her new best friend and collaborator Jennifer Lawrence, of course, and over the weekend it seems they picked up two new pals: Lawrence's Passengers co-star Chris Pratt, and his old co-star Aziz Ansari, thus creating the very likable super-celebrity Amyfer Pratsari. Judging from Schumer's and Ansari's Instagrams, the foursome was hard at work writing scripts — which, as most writers will tell you, usually involves plentiful breaks for taking naps and playing on swings.This morning @azizansari and Jen woke up an angel #sleepmanager Chris Pratt And Aziz Ansari present...

Ahhh, the awkward stage. Chris Pratt revealed Monday that even he had to live through an awkward stage growing up when he shared a school picture of himself when he was just 13 years old.
