Tom Hiddleston's Loki isn't a titular lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, instead losing the spotlight to both Chris Hemsworth's Thor and the collective Avengers, but some fans don't seem to think that's really fair. Hence why we now have the "feature" below, which is a re-edited cut of Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World called Loki: Brother of Thor: As you can tell by watching the movie - which clocks in at a little over two hours and 15 minutes - this is no mere cut, reassemble and paste job. Instead, Vimeo user Loki Odinson has actually done his best to create something close to what an actual Loki movie would look like. To do so, he collected footage not only from the aforementioned features, but also from bonus material available on the various Marvel Studios Blu-ray releases. Take, for example, the "visions" at the »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.
Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?
“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”
This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would »

While the site wouldn't reveal who this new team will include, one name that has been in every version of the script is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.

"No, I don't die. I think they want to keep me around for a while."
There has been a fan theory circulating for quite some time that Hawkeye may meet his maker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are the only two Avengers who don't have their own stand-alone movie yet, but that could change in the near future, since Marvel plans on keeping him around.
This comes just a few days after the actor hinted his character may surface in the Marvel Phase Three adventure Captain »
Jessica Chastain has called for a female superhero movie to be released.
"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don't understand it, why is it taking so long for this?" she declared to The Wrap. "This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies."
Chastain continued: "Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?
"To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, »

Firstly, he'll be in the brewing Looney Tunes movie being penned by "X-Men: First Class" writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz , with "Crazy Stupid Love" directors Glenn Ficarra and »

John Francis Daley, who makes his directorial debut alongside his filmmaking partner Jonathan M. Goldstein, had this to say in a statement about finding these young actors after a nationwide casting search.

“Horrible Bosses” scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are set to make their feature directorial debut from a script they penned. Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day are also in negotiations to join.

According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com, "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" movie director, Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige, delivered a couple of new spoiler teasers for the film at the recent Comic-Con 2014 event in San Diego,CA. In this particular segment, they talked about the Hulkbuster suit. Apparently, it's a backup suit in case things go awry, and more. Kevin told them that the Hulkbuster suit is a "bespoke suit. The back-up plan in case things go awry." Then Joss chimed in to say: "The Hulkbuster is from after my time as a reader, but even I knew what a big deal it was. It makes sense because there's no one who can really go up against Hulk, but more importantly, those guys are best friends, so what that battle is and what it means is fascinating to me."

Sometimes it’s scary how much people wind up being just like their parents. They try to fight it, but there they are, 30-something years later, dragging their own kids in the trusty family car down the same winding roads that they once had to travel on some wacky adventure. You’d think Rusty Griswold would have learned some lessons back in the ’80s after just a few failed family bonding attempts, but the long-gestating reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation is still underway, with a couple new faces now added to the cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter: Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Day. In the new incarnation of Vacation, written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, Rusty (Ed Helms) is all grown up and taking his own family (including wife Christina Applegate) on a whirlwind road trip that way or may not have an end goal of visiting Walley World.
