Having been absent from Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye will soon make his return to the McU as he links up with the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for May’s hotly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Speaking to MTV, Renner has revealed that he has no burning desire for a solo movie as Hawkeye, and appears to confirm that we will be seeing the archer again in 2016 as part of Captain America 3.
“I’m happy to do the ensemble”, says Renner. “I’m not scratching or clawing for a solo mvoie by any means. I think [Hawkeye] is a utility guy that can bounce around into other people’s universes a little bit, especially like Cap 3.”

Developed in conjunction with Smokehouse Pictures, the feature has been building up momentum in recent weeks.

After rounding out the first season of HBO’s brilliant post-apocalyptic drama, The Leftovers, and a turn on Showtime’s Masters Of Sex, Dowd has signed on to join what’s becoming one of Hollywood’s hottest properties.

Though Get On Up star Chadwick Boseman is the name that has been bandied around the most with respect to Marvel’s planned Black Panther film, the project is in such early stages of development that many other actors are understandably also throwing their names into the mix. One such hopeful is The Purge: Anarchy actor Michael K. Williams, who recently expressed his enthusiasm at the prospect of playing such a key character for Marvel.
Speaking with Cinema Blend, Williams was asked whether playing a comic-book hero interested him. The actor’s reply was swift:
“Black Panther. Yeah, definitely.”
Marvel has not officially approached Williams, he said, but that isn’t deterring the actor:
“No not yet. And I’m saying ‘yet’ with a lot of emphasis. But hopefully I’m looking forward to being a part of the franchise.”
Why Black Panther? Williams was honest about having preferred other Marvel characters while growing up, »

Oliver Stone, eager to be on the pulse of current events even if he doesn't know how the pulse is beating, is set to write and direct a movie based on Nsa leaker Edward Snowden. The film will be based on the book Time of the Octopus, which was written by Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, and "is considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents." Americans were shocked at the news that their communications were being "monitored" (even though the news was widely misconstrued), and then went back to putting their every thought on Facebook and Twitter. According to Variety, Stone has offered the role of Snowden to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and while the actor has agreed to do it, negotiations have yet to begin. If the deal is made, production would likely begin at the end of this year or early »

Snowden’s story is now familiar to most: the former U.S. intelligence analyst released more classified documents than anyone since Daniel Ellsberg’s leaking of the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War. He has been on the run ever since.
Stone acquired the rights to the book “Time of the Octopus” by Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, which is considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents.

It had a stirring world-premiere screening on Sept. 8 in a less-visible afternoon slot at Tiff and quickly sparked Oscar buzz for star Julianne Moore, a four-time nominee who has never won.
Sony Pictures Classics presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard quickly recognized the kind of role that has Oscar written all over it, and two days later the picture sold to Spc (which, despite having its largest slate of Oscar hopefuls ever, still had an »
