Complete Angel reviews: Hero

7 hours ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

It must be obvious that you shouldn't read these reviews if you're Amazon-Priming Angel for the first time; but if you are, you really shouldn't read this one.

For the first few minutes, Hero looks set to be something of a light-hearted romp. We fade up on an imaginary advert in which Cordelia pictures a great promotion for Angel Investigations – complete with Angel looking straight into the camera, announcing: “You can count on me – I'm the Dark Avenger!” It's pure comedy silliness, only exaggerated by Doyle recoiling at the thought of his boss dressing up in a superhero costume.

The daftness continues as Cordy elects to opt for the 'common man' approach. Armed with only a camcorder and hastily rigged cue cards, Cordy's chosen her representative for Angel Investigations. Doyle's stumbling, fluffed attempts at enticing punters to Angel's business isn't exactly award-winning material. What with the low rats and the weasel factor, »

The Callow Way – Why Jack Black Was Right…

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway unexpectedly finds himself in agreement with the guy from Tenacious D

It pains me to say it, but Jack Black had a point.

During his interjection into the opening song of last week’s Oscars, Black jokingly bemoaned the current state of cinema, complaining about sequels, prequels and comic book movies. It’s a familiar argument, and one that has been made before – one that I make regularly myself, to be honest. Given that it was a funny, but throwaway line during an award ceremony, you’d expect it to be forgotten quite quickly. Not so, it seems. James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy, wrote on Facebook that he didn’t find it offensive, before devoting 300 words as to why it was wrong.

This puzzled me. If I had just directed a film that was nudging close to $800 million at the box office, I »

Chris Hemsworth on Thor’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, promises “a lengthy fight scene of destruction”

28 February 2015 3:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with the release of yesterday’s Thor character poster, the official Marvel site has posted an in depth interview with Chris Hemsworth, during which the star offered up a few details about the God of Thunder’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“We pick up with Thor having stayed on Earth from Thor: The Dark World. He’s part of the team. This is his home for the moment. The initial attack from Ultron is personal because it’s at all the Avengers, and Thor then begins to see a bigger sort of picture here about what this threat could be potentially. And it begins to tie in to all of our films… I think [Thor] openly admits he doesn’t think we can win this one. The threat is so great that all of them are scratching their heads wondering if this it. It’s just an onslaught, »

Joss Whedon on the scope of Avengers: Age of Ultron and its “unhinged” climax

27 February 2015 2:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Marvel steps up the publicity for Avengers: Age of Ultron with a series of character posters [check them out here], Yahoo! Movies caught up with Joss Whedon, during which the director discussed the scope of the hotly-anticipated sequel and its “unhinged” final act as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes take on the villainous AI and his army of Ultron bots.

Avengers: Age of Ultron got larger than the first film,” states Whedon. “I didn’t mean for it to get larger, but the climax that I pitched was completely unhinged and nobody said no, so that’s that… To me, adventure film is the best way to put it. Then science fiction, action, western, war, woman’s picture, horror movie … I’m not kidding; every single one of those things is in there.”

“You know they’re going to fight Ultron,” he continues. “You know Ultron has a tendency to build hundreds of Ultrons. »

See new Avengers 2 promo: "I'm going to tear you apart from the inside"

27 February 2015 2:33 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A brand new teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron hints at a diabolical threat to the superhero team.

Marvel Studios' new teaser includes footage of each Avenger being driven to their limit, as Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) questions the group's place in the world.

The artificial intelligence known as Ultron also ominously warns the heroes: "I'm going to tear you apart from the inside."

Marvel's promotional blitz for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been in full swing this week, as Hayley Atwell, Anthony Mackie and Idris Elba were all confirmed to be appearing in the sequel.

Avengers: Joss Whedon addresses Ultron's new origin

Robert Downey Jr has also hinted at a major Marvel-related announcement in the coming days.

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on April 24 in the UK and on May 1 in the Us.

Thor Looks Like He's About To Murder Someone In This Avengers 2 Poster

27 February 2015 1:11 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bringing together the ultimate cast of characters, including Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Nick Fury, Maria Hill and many more (including the long-awaited Vision, as well as the menacing technologically-driven supervillain Ultron), Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron is likely to be an epic action bonanza like no other. Getting some solo treatment in the upcoming film's latest poster is none other than the Asgardian warrior and God of Thunder, Thor. As you can see in below, the ultra-jacked up superhero is looking mighty serious, as if ready to murder someone. Just in case we had any doubts that Thor would be ready to kick some ass in the new Avengers sequel, the above poster certainly reassures us. Looking suspiciously over his shoulder, while the enemy robots swarm around him from all angles including overhead, we're curious to see what Joss Whedon has in store »

'Avengers 2' Thor Poster with Chris Hemsworth

27 February 2015 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A new wave of character posters have been arriving this week for Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the stars themselves releasing the one-sheets through their official Twitter accounts. Apparently Samuel L. Jackson has become the ambassador for his Twitter-less cast mates, debuting posters for his own character Nick Fury, along with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth's Thor earlier today. It's clear that all of these one-sheets take place at the same battle, but since they all have slightly different backgrounds, perhaps they will all form one gigantic poster, similar to the one Marvel debuted at Comic-Con last summer.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program. Things soon go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. »

Chris Hemsworth on new villains and old fears for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

27 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If I had to rank the top ten things I've witnessed on a film set, one of those spots would be taken by the moment that occurred as a group of reporters, all flown to London by Marvel, walked out onto the upper balcony of the main room of the Avengers Tower set. Below us, two figures stood locked in combat. Or at least, they stood locked in the rehearsal for combat, as Joss Whedon walked around them, discussing the staging of the fight. We immediately recognized one of the figures as Thor, and one of the things that I find most impressive about Chris Hemsworth is that even when they have his stunt double on set, Hemsworth is still the biggest guy in the room. He is gigantic. I'm not 100% sure I'm the same gender as Hemsworth. He is, in a word, absurd. Of course they cast him as a god walking the Earth. »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Black Widow & Nick Fury Posters

27 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, the first in a series of character posters from the highly-anticipated action-packed sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted, straight from the Twitter pages of stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) and Mark Ruffalo (Hulk). Today, Samuel L. Jackson debuted two more one-sheets for his character Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow from his own Twitter page. With a cast that's larger than ever, there may be no end in sight to these poster reveals for this Marvel Phase Two sequel.

What Suicide Squad Will Borrow From The Dark Knight

27 February 2015 7:01 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

No jokes. It was a mandate we had heard about the developing DC Cinematic Universe, and it.s one that flies in stark contrast (get it?) to the lighter movies of Marvel. Yet, David Ayer.s Suicide Squad is going to have a Joker (in Jared Leto), and the maniacal Harley Quinn (in Margot Robbie). It has to be humorous. Right? Maybe not. Knowing that it.s very early in the process, Margot Robbie spoke with MTV about the upcoming super-villain movie, and what fans can expect. She was asked specifically about the tone of the material, as that can go a long way toward preparing an audience for the end result. Specifically, Robbie was asked if Suicide Squad would resemble Christopher Nolan.s somber, serious Batman trilogy, or Joss Whedon.s The Avengers. She explained that Squad likely will borrow its tone from Nolan, saying: I think on a »

Chris Hemsworth Is Excited to Make Thor Funny Again in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

27 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first thing that you need to know about actually meeting Chris Hemsworth is that he's huge. Like the kind of huge that you imagine him having to turn sideways to fit through doorframes. He is every bit the god that he plays in the Marvel movies and on the day we were visiting the set, he stood side-by-side his stunt double and for size and height and muscle mass, easily dwarfed him. Chris Hemsworth does not mess around. And in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," he really means business.

For most of the day we got to watch a scene where Hemsworth, as mighty Norse warrior Thor, was battling The Vision, a new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (portrayed by Paul Bettany, who up until this point had been heard but not seen in the McU as the voice of Tony Stark's electronic butler Jarvis). Bettany looked amazing, with »
