Where will Hulk land next? We have no idea, and neither does Mark Ruffalo! But it sure won't be in Captain America: Civil War. Which will surely disappoint some fans who feel the big green goliath isn't getting enough screen time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Especially when compared to other heroes like Captain America, Iron Man and even the under represented Black Widow. However unlikely, it's possible that we've even seen the last of Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner. But why?
For months now, it has been discussed and tossed about that Mark Ruffalo is reprising his character of Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Captain America: Civil War. Mark Ruffalo himself has seemingly confirmed that he will return over and over again. And why not? The film contains every single Marvel hero we've seen on screen up until this point. And even a few we haven't. The most telling »
Just so you know, this quote has been translated from Italian by Google.
“I thought that I would be in the film, but in the end evidently believe that reveal what happened Hulk is something too big, and Marvel wants to use this information later,” Ruffalo sort of said to BadTaste.it. “My character had been inserted in the script, but then it was taken away. Who knows, maybe Hulk will never return. However, they want to keep the revelation of what happened a secret, because it is something really big.”
Does this mean we won’t be seeing Hulk until Avengers: Infinity War? Was he going to be in Captain America: Civil War at one point? »

With a flair for the literal and a cape to match Thor’s, Paul Bettany’s Vision is the undisputed Mvp ofThe Avengers: Age of Ultron. Bettany’s graduation from Jarvis to Vision, however, took a lot more than just red makeup.
Executive producer Victoria Alonso and visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend escort us behind the scenes of Joss Whedon’s Age of Ultron for an exclusive look at how Vision came to life. No, it doesn’t involve Iron Man’s A.I. obsession or a rebellious Ultron, but rather a visual effects process called the “Uncanny Valley.”
What is the “Uncanny Valley,” and why is it so important to the character of Ultron? Let’s have Victoria and Christopher explain in the Canadian debut of bonus features from Age of Ultron’s home video release!

French actor will reportedly play an assassin tracking Matt Damon’s returning sometime amnesiac operative in latest instalment of blockbuster spy saga
Cassel, 48, makes a rare foray into Hollywood big-budget fare as an assassin tracking Bourne. The new, as-yet-untitled film will see Damon reunite with regular series director Paul Greengrass, who also co-writes the screenplay with Christopher Rouse after taking time out from the $1.2bn espionage saga. The actor’s most recent appearance as Bourne was in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, following which Jeremy Renner played a different agent in the less successful The Bourne Legacy in 2012.

With production said to be taking place shortly on Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass’ return to the Bourne franchise, the rest of the cast is slowly coming together with Variety reporting that Black Swan and Ocean Twelve’s Vincent Cassel has come onboard for the villain role, playing an assassin on the trail of our favourite kick ass spy who’s not James Bond. Cassell joins the returning Bourne and Julia Stiles, swell as other new comers Alicia Vikander as the female lead and Tommy Lee Jones as high ranking CIA officer. Nothing much is known about this latest instalment of the popular franchise, but we do know we won’t be seeing a crossover between Bourne and Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy. Whatever it ends up being called, Bourne 5 comes our way July 29th 2016. »

Talented French actor Vincent Cassel has joined the cast of the untitled fifth Bourne movie. According to Variety, Cassel is set to play a villainous role in the action sequel. Sources claim the Ocean's Twelve star will be an assassin hunting down Matt Damon's elusive Jason Bourne - in the vein of characters portrayed by the likes of Clive Owen and Karl Urban in the original trilogy. Cassel joins an already impressive cast, which includes Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander, alongside franchise veterans Damon and Julia Stiles. The Bourne Supremacy/Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm once again as well. Damon recently claimed this sequel would be set in a "post-Snowden world", and revealed that filming starts this week in Greece. The original Bourne trilogy was immensely popular with both fans and critics alike, raking in almost $1 billion at the global box office. Comparitvely, 2012's »
Following the critical drubbing of wonky drama “Seven Pounds” and the box office disappointment of M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi clunker “After Earth,” actor Will Smith’s career seemed due for a realignment.
He signed on with a handful of indie directors breaking out into larger territory (Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s “Focus,” Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s “Collateral Beauty”) and even dived headlong into Hollywood’s superhero revolution (David Ayer’s “Suicide Squad”). Tucked within are a pair of prestige dramas, one from Edward Zwick (“The American Can”) and the other a potential awards player this season (Peter Landesman’s “Concussion”). Let’s look at the latter, which debuted a teaser trailer Monday.
The film tells the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born neuropathologist who was the first to blow the whistle on the NFL and the connection between brain trauma in football players and a sport where guys, »

Last week, we showed you two previews for Avengers: Age of Ultron's release on 3D Digital and Digital HD September 8 and on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Sd and VOD October 2. While those previews showcased new characters Vision (Paul Bettany) and Ultron (James Spader), today we have yet another featurette, which features the superhero siblings Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). Both of the stars reveal how they worked with director Joss Whedon to develop their incredible super powers.
We also get plenty of behind-the-scenes footage with Joss Whedon, executive producer Victoria Alonso, and visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend showcasing how they came up with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver's powers, while Elizabeth Olsen reveals she even worked with a dancer, to get the right movements down to portray Scarlet Witch. We also get to see early concept art for each character, showing the evolution of their powers from pre-production through the actual shoot. »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation
In his score for Kingsman: The Secret Service, Henry Jackman wants you to know he’s a James Bond fan. He just doesn’t want to tell you. Monte Norman’s iconic guitar riff pops in and out of his score, and brassy John Barry flourishes pepper the background music of Matthew Vaughn’s latest pulpy indulgence. Vaughn and comic book brute Mark Millar’s spy thriller struck a chord with audiences in February with gaudy, gory violence and in-jokes to the Ian Fleming novels it draws from. Strangely though, Jackman’s half-baked music never follows suit, tiptoeing around its homages rather than fully committing to its Roger Moore era obsessions.
The music of Kingsman wants its both ways, retro while still feeling fresh enough for modern box office, a shared paradox with The Man From U.N.C.L.E., »

Black Widow can punch explosions.
Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.
It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?
