Entertainment Weekly has posted a very interesting interview with Anthony Mackie, that no fan of the actor should miss. In it the site confirm that this movie incarnation of his character, The Falcon, is indeed an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., adding that although he'll be a peer of Black Widow (Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), “his sense of duty makes him less cynical and closer to the salute-the-flag sensibility of [Steve] Rogers.” Mackie also explains to the site that his take on Falcon is “a really smart guy who went through major military training and becomes a tactical leader, he’s not some guy that fell into this.” The comic version of Sam Wilson has always been a loyal friend to Steve Rogers, implacable in his sense of honor and duty, and it seems that will definitely carry over to this big-screen version. “The most important thing »
Whedon delivered the news in a podcast interview with Empire;
“Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for [a quim moment]. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it’s just a nice word.”
The decision not to use Loki in the next ensemble film makes perfect sense. Not only does this mean a new master villain will be used but likely a different kind of threat to the world. If Marvel had gone back to Loki in The Avengers 2, »

The Avengers 2 writer-director Joss Whedon revealed over the weekend that Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston in Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, will not be featured in the upcoming Marvel Phase Two sequel.
"Immitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things."
Tom Hiddleston does return in Thor: The Dark World, debuting in theaters this fall, but it isn't known why the villain does not make an appearance in The Avengers 2. The filmmaker also confirmed a story from April that he has finished the first draft of the sequel, and that the rest of the Marvel's The Avengers cast is returning.
"I've turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody's very much on board with the exact movie I'm trying to make which is what worked the first time. »

Warning: This post contains spoilers about future Avengers-related films. Proceed with caution.Sorry Hawkeye, looks like Black Widow has a new man.While it seemed like Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanov still harbored some feelings for Jeremy Renner's bowman in "The Avengers," she was just spotted locking lips with another super friend.ScarJo was photographed kissing Chris Evans (aka Steve Rogers) while filming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" yesterday in D.C.Though they were both out of their superhero costumes during the smooch, this was for the film.If you remember, Rogers was linked to Peggy Carter in the first movie ... but she continued to age as he was frozen in time for almost 70 years.Yeah, it's a raw deal ... but getting Black Widow as a consolation prize isn't too shabby."Captain America: The Winter Soldier" doesn't hit theaters until April 4, 2014.

Adam McKay, the director of "Anchorman," took a break from editing the sequel due out December to talk about another recent project of his, "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," which he co-produced with Will Ferrell and others.
Click past the jump to read our interview with McKay!
How did you first become involved in the project?
I purely came out of "Dead Snow," [director Tommy Wirkola's] first movie. Our producers, Gary Sanchez, Kevin Messick, had seen it. Kevin and I had talked a lot about all the different kind of movies we love. Part of the reason that we have a production company is to do other kinds of movies. That's ultimately our goal, and he had seen this movie that was at Sundance. He showed it to us, and we flipped for it. Then he brought in Tommy Wirkola, and we hit it off right away. This is going back six years, five years ago. »

With Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters arriving on Unrated Blu-ray and DVD today, now's the perfect time to hear from writer/director Tommy Wirkola about the film, the upcoming sequel and more.
Check out our exclusive interview with Wirkola below, and look for Hansel & Gretel everywhere right now!
Dread Central: With generations of people having heard and read the tale throughout time, can you discuss your process of putting your own touches on the story of "Hansel & Gretel"?
Tommy Wirkola: I always thought that the fairy tale read as a great first act of anything because it's this fantastically dark and twisted world that leaves the main characters in such a great spot- what happened to them after? So I basically just took that and tried to inject my own sense of humor into it and of course a lot of violence and gore. I just wanted to have some fun with it. »
The sequel to Dumb and Dumber has hit a road block. The in-development follow-up to the hit 1994 comedy was in the works at New Line Cinema, but New Line’s parent company, Warner Bros., has dropped the project, EW confirmed Tuesday. THR first reported the news.
Bobby and Peter Farrelly — the writer-director brothers who created the original — are now searching for a new financier and distributor for Dumb and Dumber To (yes, that’s the title). Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are expected to return as short-on-smarts pair Lloyd and Harry. In the sequel, the two friends will go on »

When I first think of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, the term troll isn.t one of the first things that come to mind. Instead, I typically think of gory, gleeful R-rated witch hunting and quippy comments from the film.s leads, Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton. However, Edward the troll actually plays a huge role in the film and it.s really surprising to learn that the character is played by a man in a very hot suit. Paramount Home Entertainment has been gracious enough to extend us the above exclusive Blu-ray bonus clip, which looks into Renner and Arterton.s scenes with the troll in the film. Arterton relates how the character is imposing and Renner simply talks about the hard work that had to be put into the role by actor Derek Mears since the weight is so imposing.

Everybody knows Aaron Taylor-Johnson can kick your ass. But did you know he can run away from said ass-kicking super-fast, too?
That'll be the case if a round of negotiations between Johnson and Marvel Studios pans out favorably for the actor, at least. According to The Wrap, the "Kick-Ass" star is the man Marvel wants to play Quicksilver in "The Avengers 2," the upcoming sequel to Joss Whedon's smash-hit superhero slug-fest.
There's no confirmation that Taylor-Johnson has landed the role just yet. But it is likely that the roles of Quicksilver and his sister, Scarlet Witch, will be filled out in time for Comic-Con in July. After all, ahead of the first "Avengers" film, Marvel assembled all of Earth's mightiest heroes on the Hall H stage to build buzz for their long-awaited epic. It was the first official reveal of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. »

Pretty much nothing is known about the 2015 blockbuster. But Whedon has recently confirmed that the brother-sister team of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be in the movie. And now Deadline report that Marvel are reportedly eyeing Aaron Taylor-Johnson for the role.
We are of course expecting the entirety of the original team to return, which we’re all hoping will include Robert Downey, Jr. as Tony Stark / Iron Man, alongside Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner.
Taylor-Johnson has been on the rise nicely in recent years, »
