Captain America: Civil War VFX featurette explores the creation of Wakanda

13 November 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The mid-credits scene of this year’s Captain America: Civil War gave us our very first look at Wakanda ahead of 2018’s Black Panther solo movie, and a new featurette from VFX studio Image Engine has arrived online, which details how they went about creating this tantalising glimpse at T’Challa’s homeland. Check it out here…

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising »

Great Job, Internet!: No, this is how to do Ant-Man cosplay at a sci-fi convention

10 November 2016 1:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Some superheroes lend themselves more easily to cosplay than others. While any dope can squeeze into a Superman or Spider-Man suit purchased at a deep discount from Party City and be instantly recognizable, it takes a little more effort and ingenuity to convey the essence of the size-changing Ant-Man, who is, at the risk of being pedantic, a man who can shrink himself to be ant-sized.

But it seems like a quintet of Marvel fans attending Rocky Mountain Con, a recently concluded sci-fi and comic book convention in the Denver/Aurora area, managed to do just that. A photo tweeted by writer Ricky Tan depicts an incredible chorus line of five Ant-Men, arranged by height from shortest to tallest. All are wearing matching versions of the costume sported by the eternally boyish Paul Rudd in 2015’s Ant-Man and 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, giving the impression that a ...

Feige: The Current Marvel Cast Isn't Going Anywhere!! And More!

10 November 2016 8:25 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A frequent topic for people who like to speculate about Marvel's future is: When are we going to lose the original versions of the characters that started this whole thing off? And how?

After all, we know that the initial core Avengers were all signed to six-picture deals- deals that all either have, or will soon expire. This means that Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth may be having their own Swan Songs as Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor pretty darn soon, right?

Wrong.

According to Marvel Studios honcho Kevin Feige, they've got plans and deals in place that will keep the current cast busy for years to come!

Feige revealed as much in a chat with the Toronto Sun. They asked the producer, and architect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, how the studio plans on dealing with the departure of these actors. Are they going to »

How 'Doctor Strange' (and Marvel) Made Benedict Cumberbatch a Movie Star

8 November 2016 9:32 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Six months ago, you might have called Benedict Cumberbatch one of the most impressive actors of his generation, British division. You could have referred to him as an Oscar nominee; a Shakespearean thespian; a solid supporting presence in prestige films like 12 Years a Slave (to jog your memory: he was the one who was not Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt or Chiwetel Ejiofor); someone who has graced successful great-man biopics and and less-than-successful versions of the same; a sex symbol; and the third-greatest Sherlock Holmes of all time.

Netflix Original Movies Head Pauline Fischer Exits (Exclusive)

6 November 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pauline Fischer, the high-ranking executive who oversaw original films at Netfix, is leaving her post, Variety has learned.

Fischer, who joined Netflix in 2008, will be starting a business development consultancy firm. As the company’s vice president of original films, she worked closely with chief content officer Ted Sarandos to acquire new titles for the streaming service. Her exit comes as Netflix has been aggressively moving into original content, snapping up the rights of such titles as “The Fundamentals of Caring” starring Paul Rudd out of Sundance and releasing Oscar documentary hopeful “13th,” directed by Ava DuVernay.

One of Fischer’s first offerings was Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation,” a grim drama about child soldiers in Africa that was purchased for $12 million in 2015. Netflix released the title in theaters and on its streaming platforms on the same day last year, as a part of an aggressive bid to »

‘Doctor Strange’ Proves Marvel Is the Gold Standard in Hollywood

6 November 2016 12:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Novelist Richard Russo once mused that Cary Grant never won an Oscar because he never seemed to sweat. “He made everything look so effortless,” Russo wrote. “Why reward someone for having fun, for being charming?”

The same logic applies to Marvel, the comic-book juggernaut that scored its 14th consecutive number one opening this weekend with “Doctor Strange.” The company has been successful for so long, that box office profits are almost preordained. It can be easy to take them for granted. Despite routinely earning good reviews, these films aren’t generating awards heat in the way that populist, Spielbergian fare like “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” or “Raiders of the Lost Ark” once did.

That’s a shame. Under Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, the home of Iron Man and the Avengers has been a dazzling model of critical and commercial consistency. Every film the studio has released has been certified “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, »

In the six months since his wife passed away, comedian and actor Patton Oswalt has taken on a new role: public mourner. Oswalt has been candid about his experiences, most recently during his appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “The more you talk openly about what it is and put more light onto it,” he told Colbert, “people can see all the angles and say, “Oh, okay, that is horrible, but there’s life on other side of it and it’s somehow manageable.”

Ant-Man director Peyton Reed is currently developing the sequel to last year’s superhero origin story, with Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne set to share top billing with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang in Ant-Man and the Wasp. During an interview with Moviefone, Reed has shared his thoughts on seeing Giant-Man making his debut in Captain America: Civil War, as well as sharing his excitement about what’s in store in his sequel.

“When I first found out — gosh, I don’t know, two years ago, a year-and-a-half ago — that Civil War was going to get the Giant-Man premiere, I was like ‘No!'” said Reed. “But, now, I’ve since recovered, and we have a lot more in store for Scott Lang in this movie. We get to see the Wasp debut — we’re all about the Wasp and Ant-Man.”
