Marvel’s Kevin Feige says future Avengers movies will take place in space

Although Marvel is keeping its Phase Four plans tightly under wraps, we do know that the studio plans on delving further into the cosmic universe post-Avengers 4, with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn helping Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige to help shape this side of the McU.

Well, it seems this cosmic emphasis won’t just apply to the likes of the Guardians and Thor, as Feige has revealed at Brazil’s Comic-Con Experience that future Avengers movies will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes venturing into outer space.

“If the Avengers survive, we will see more films with them in space,” said Feige (via Talkies Network). “I love and would like to see more films in space.”

It is expected that the McU will receive a major shake up after Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, with characters such as Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel coming to the forefront.

Jeremy Renner teases his Hawkeye Avengers 4 costume as Gwyneth Paltrow shares spoilery behind the scenes video

Jeremy Renner has teased an image of what looks to be his Hawkeye/Ronin costume for Avengers 4 and Gwyneth Paltrow has had a spoiler-filled behind the scenes video deleted.

The question of just who is going to turn up in Avengers 4, or rather, who will survive Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, is one that is asked often. Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is a character that will be showing up however, and the actor has shared on Instagram a shot of himself in costume (prior spy photos have indicated that he’ll be getting a brand new suit as he moves over to his Ronin persona).

The shadowy photo was posted along with the caption: “Costume on point today … what do you think?”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the McU, may have just given away a pretty big spoiler regarding her character in Avengers 4.

In an Instagram video,

Nebula Star Karen Gillan Believes Avengers: Infinity War Is More Than Just A Film

Ask anyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War to describe Marvel’s biggest blockbuster and you’ll likely be met with a barrage of superlatives – colossal, mind-blowing, staggering…you name it.

But Karen Gillan (Nebula) has gone one step further to say that Infinity War is more than just a film – it’s a cinematic event. Currently doing press for Jumanji, Gillan sat down with Digital Spy to discuss her foray into the jungle, and why she’s beginning to develop a taste for white-knuckle action roles.

As for her involvement in the McU, specifically, Karen Gillan then previewed Avengers: Infinity War, a film she considers to be the “biggest movie in the world.” But such a massive crossover doesn’t come easy.

I think when you’re making the biggest movie in the world, people are excited to be there. But it’s a long shoot, so it’s tough on everyone.

Avengers 4: Jeremy Renner’s Latest Hawkeye Tease Fuels Ronin Rumors

Will Avengers 4 signal the advent of Ronin?

That’s just one of the major Marvel-related theories currently gaining traction online, and Jeremy Renner has only gone ahead and fanned the flames of speculation with a cryptic new Instagram post. First spotted by ComicBook.com, the image below was presumably taken on set in Atlanta, where the sun (or a yellow-tinged studio light) allowed Renner to cast a shadow on a nearby wall.

It’s a cute tease of what’s to come, as we only see the outline of Jeremy Renner himself, along with Hawkeye’s trusty quiver. You’ll also notice that the actor is sporting that cropped haircut (mohawk? Mohawkeye?!), which only lends credence to the alleged transformation into Ronin. For the record, the following social media post came bearing the caption, “costume on point today…what do you think?” along with a winking emoji. Oh, Renner, you devil you.

Golden Globes 2018 Film Surprises and Snubs: ‘The Greatest Showman’ Lands 3, But ‘The Big Sick’ Is Shut Out
Fox Searchlight had a lovely Golden Globes nominations morning, notching 15 nominations as Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” continued its Critics Choice surge with seven nominations, followed by Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with six. The other expected drama nominations were Fox’s Steven Spielberg journalism valentine “The Post” (six), Sony Pictures Classics gay love story “Call Me By Your Name” (three), and Warner Bros.Christopher Nolan war movie “Dunkirk” (three).

Finally, Working Title/Focus Features’ other World War II drama, “Darkest Hour,” seems to be strictly a Gary Oldman Drama Actor play, while Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” landed nods for Daniel Day-Lewis and Johnny Greenwood for Score. Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” (A24) posted strong results on the Comedy side (four), but no director nod. In fact, the Globes gave all five director slots to men.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige compares Chris Evans’ Captain America to Christopher Reeve’s Superman

It’s fair to say that a few eyebrows were raised when Marvel first announced that the former Human Torch Chris Evans would be taking on the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Evans has since won over any critics with his superb performances in the Captain America and Avengers films, and Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has been singing the actor’s praises in an interview with Vanity Fair, where he compared him to Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

“Casting Captain America was super hard,” said Feige. “I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t, what are we going to do with Avengers? Is the whole thing going to fall apart?’ And, then, finally opening ourselves up to Chris Evans, who we had initially sort of just looked

Jeremy Renner Encourages Global Filmmakers at Iffam Project Pitch

Jeremy Renner Encourages Global Filmmakers at Iffam Project Pitch
Oscar-, Golden Globe, and BAFTA-nominated Hollywood star Jeremy Renner was the surprise guest at the project market during the ongoing International Film Festival & Awards Macao.

Some 14 projects were pitched to international industry practitioners. The eclectic pitches were from Macau, Portugal, South Korea, Australia, U.S., Japan, Malaysia, France, Indonesia, Germany, The Netherlands, Canada, U.K., China, Spain, Belgium and Brazil.

Renner dropped in towards the end of the pitches and after joking about how difficult it is to get films made and then finding an audience for them, he encouraged the filmmakers to surround themselves with talent better than them. He used the example of his recent critically acclaimed film “Wind River,” written and directed by Taylor Sheridan.

“Taylor is definitely a leader, as the director,” Renner said. “And why he is a great leader, he encourages others to lead. One of the first things he said to me was ‘I’ll never tell you no’. As

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explains how to build a cinematic universe

Over the past decade, Kevin Feige has led Marvel Studios to phenomenal success, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest-grossing movie franchise in history with over $13 billion in box office receipts. This success has prompted several other attempts at shared universes, although the likes of Warner’s DC Extended Universe and Universal Dark Universe have not yet managed to reach the same kind of critical and commercial heights.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked what advice he’d give to those looking to build their own universes, responding that:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today, is don’t worry about the universe. Worry about the movie. We never set out to build a universe. We set out to make a great Iron Man movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie and then be able to do what, at the time,

Fizzy Opening Ceremony Marks Second Edition of Macao Festival & Awards

Fizzy Opening Ceremony Marks Second Edition of Macao Festival & Awards
Jeremy Renner and Hong Kong star Myriam Yeung were on hand Friday to add a touch of glamour to the opening of the 2nd International Film Festival and Awards.

The festival is an ambitious attempt to put Macau, a former Portuguese colony, now a Special Administrative Area belonging to China and renown for its casinos, on the cultural map.

Under the artistic direction of Mike Goodridge, a former journalist and film executive, the festival is a carefully-balanced mix of accessible, audience-friendly features along with art-house titles that have stood out on the festival circuit in the last few months. Its modest 48-film selection keeps the event on a human scale and allows guests to quickly mingle.

The ceremony had the great virtue of addressing all the traditional Asian touch points of a festival – prominence for local officials, a formal gong ceremony, and a parade of celebrities – but also keeping things moving swiftly without lengthy speeches. Renner, sporting

Tom Cullen on Why 'Knightfall' Is the 'Best Thing' He's Ever Done (Exclusive)

Tom Cullen on Why 'Knightfall' Is the 'Best Thing' He's Ever Done (Exclusive)
The Knightfall crew moved heaven and earth to bring the show to screen... and so did its star, Tom Cullen

The show was picked up for 10 episodes straight-to-series in January 2016, signifying History's confidence in the Jeremy Renner-executive produced project, despite a massive set fire halfway through filming, and a Welsh actor who auditioned for the role of a warrior monk looking "like a mix between a gerbil and a Christmas pudding." 

"Honestly, I looked like a turkey!" Cullen boldly confesses to Et after a night out promoting the show in Los Angeles. "I had just come out of Christmas, and I just looked like Christmas, do you know what I mean? I was the human equivalent of Christmas, so I had to do a lot of work in order to make myself look like a knight." 

The actor was in the gym five hours a day for three months "to make myself look less [like a] turkey" before filming

Oscars: Best Actor is a Race to Lose to Gary Oldman… Or is It?

Oscars: Best Actor is a Race to Lose to Gary Oldman… Or is It?
Compared with this year’s lead actress Oscar race — a wide-open contest packed with serious contenders and no clear winner in their midst — the lead actor competition is a little less exciting. The list of viable players ends a bit more quickly, and they all might well be vying for the right to lose to a towering Oscar bait performance.

Gary Oldman is a force of nature as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour,” gnawing the scenery, wonderfully comfortable in the famed Briton’s skin. He has felt like the one to beat seemingly since the first production stills arrived showing off his physical transformation. Long admired for his efforts in movies like “Sid and Nancy,” “State of Grace,” “True Romance” and “Léon: The Professional,” among others, the actor finally landed his first Oscar nomination just six years ago, for “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” But despite missing some early precursor prizes, everything seems to

Avengers: Infinity War set photo may feature a major Hulk spoiler

In lieu of an Incredible Hulk solo movie, which due to rights issues with Universal is unfortunately off the table for the time being, Marvel Studios announced that the Green Goliath will be getting his own three-movie arc across Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4.

As we saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Banner had remained in his Hulk form for two years, as his alter-ego developed more intelligence and the ability to speak, and now thanks to a set photo from Atlanta Filming on Twitter, we may have an idea where this arc is set to take us next in Avengers: Infinity War

Elizabeth Olsen confirms Scarlet Witch return in Avengers 4

It’s common knowledge by now that Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel is set to really shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the two-part superhero epic serving as a finale for several characters, as well as launching the McU into a new direction for Phase Four and beyond.

It’s expected as part of this finale that some of our favourites may find themselves falling in battle against Thanos and his minions. However, it seems that Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch will at least make it through to Avengers 4, as the actress has confirmed her involvement in the 2019 release by sharing a photo to social media showing a rather nasty bruise she’s suffered during filming…

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew

10 Fight Club Facts You Never Knew
Today, it's an oft-quoted classic, but Fight Club was only a modest success when it was released in 1999. Its cult film status was cemented by repeated VHS and DVD viewings, thanks to the brilliant performances by Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter in David Fincher's adaptation of the novel of the same name. By now, we're all as familiar with the movie's twist as we are the whole bit in The Sixth Sense. Yes, there's the whole "first rule of Fight Club," but we've all shared anecdotes like the subversive frames hidden in the movie, or the Starbucks cups in every scene. Here, we look at 10 things you never knew about Fight Club.

The Producers courted four different directors.

It's hard to imagine anyone else behind the camera, but producers approached at least three other directors for the job before making a deal with David Fincher, who
