Where’s the best place to get updates on the next Marvel tentpole? Why, the Wall Street Journal, of course. Ray Stevenson, of Rome and Dexter fame, is reprising his role as Volstagg of the Warriors Three in Thor: The Dark World. It appears his role is beefed up in the sequel, and Asgard and the other realms are not as happy as they once were. Here’s what the big man had to say about the Alan Taylor helmed sequel.
What of Asgard and the 9 realms?
“In the first “Thor” Asgard had this tremendous peace among the 9 realms. They were riding at the heights. Everything is working and looking as it should be. In this one, the realms are being whipped up into various rebellions. There is a darker malignant force out there and we are in the process of engaging in long protracted skirmishes and battles.

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Stormare, Eduardo Noriega, Luis Guzmán, Sonny Landham, Jaimie Alexander, Zach Gilford | Written by Andrew Knauer | Directed by Jee-woon Kim
After a temporary retirement and a brief stint as the Governator of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to the silver screen. Schwarzenegger has had a few cameos in The Expendables franchise but The Last Stand marks the first time Schwarzenegger has taken the lead in a film since Terminator 3. With such a long layoff one wonders if Schwarzenegger could pick up where he left off. While he would never be confused with an acting savant, he brought a certain magnetic charm that made him one of the world’s biggest action stars. Perhaps it’s an issue of too much rust on the gears or a hindrance due to advanced age that has water downed his charismatic persona. His movements are achy, his punches are feeble, »

After leaving his Lapd narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, »

How has it been looking back at "The Last Stand"?
I've said it before, but this probably the most fun I've ever had on a set. We all would eat lunch together every day. We just had such a great crew and cast. I wish there could be a sequel.
Is it different watching yourself in an action movie? »

You want Bam? How about Clark Gregg talking about resurrecting Agent Coulson for TV and the movies? Pow? How about Jaimie Alexander Sif-ting through the secrets of Thor: The Dark World? And Zap? Mark Hamill remembers the days when George Lucas envisioned as many as 12 Star Wars films! Clark Gregg: Agent Coulson’s Return to TV – and Marvel Movies? We’re movie-centric over here at Bam! Pow! Zap! but since a) one of the safest bets for pickup any second now by ABC is the Joss Whedon-produced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which spins directly out of The Avengers; and b) I recently chatted with the Clark "Agent Coulson" Gregg, star of both projects, let’s look at how the small screen fits into the big picture for a moment.

Marvel’S Phase 2
Phase 2 of the cinematic Marvel Universe will kick off May 3rd. It seems like only yesterday that Avengers came out, but here we are, on the precipice of the continuation of Marvel and Kevin Feige’s vision. The films are five-fold (in order of release): Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Avengers 2, and we will get an interesting mix of new and familiar, as we continue to test how stable these franchises and characters are on their own, how much demand there still is for superhero fare (or these particular heroes on their own), and how much more genius Joss Whedon has stolen from the Gods.
While it’s like picking a favorite horror film, I got to thinking, how would I rank my anticipation level for these films? Which film am I most excited about? »

Iron Man 3 comes tomorrow. That’s not news, but Tony Stark is about to take over Hollywood once again, and Marvel is looking to continue its reign, with Phase 2 of its cinematic expansion. Kevin Feige got to talking to EW about each of the next five films, including the first film in Phase 3 (that’d be Ant-man), and along with that, came a new image from Thor: The Dark World and new concept art from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Read on for the litany of fun and a bunch of quotes from the producer extraordinaire Feige.
Before delving into specific films, Feige outlines Marvel’s expansion: “There are things in [Iron Man 3], in the next Thor movie, and particularly in the next Cap movie that will drastically change the landscape between Avengers and Avengers 2…One of the amazing things in our little Marvel Studios sandbox »

Iron Man 3 opens this weekend so it's old news. It's six months until Thor: The Dark World so now we need to know almost everything about it. The sequel has Thor (Chris Hemsworth) reuniting with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), and faced with the new threat of sorcerer Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston) and his horde of dark elves. New director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) takes the action off of Earth and into the mystical realms that will lend themselves to some impressive sets and set pieces. Hit the jump for what Kevin Feige, Marvel's President of Production, had to say about the Asgardian's upcoming adventure, and also comments on Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. The film also stars Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins.

With The Avengers closing Marvel's Phase One, Mark looks ahead to the movies the studio has in store for Phase Two...
It's tough to think of a cinematic undertaking as vast as Marvel Studios' continuity of films since 2008's Iron Man. While The Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter were both massive film productions based on a literary property, the first phase of Marvel's plan also cross-pollinated between respective franchises, all leading up to the big crossover in The Avengers.
On its own, The Avengers would have served as a nice conclusion to that series of inter-connected comic book movies, but it also marked the first chapter of a new story, which will »

"If you've seen the trailer, I think you have maybe sort of a gut instinct that there's a bit of a love triangle between Sif, Thor and Jane but also you get to see Sif pretty much sacrifice everything in her world to save the ones that she loves. And even the ones she doesn't love, but say the one that loves the guy that she loves. She puts it all on the line. " It's clear that Jaimie is referring to Jane (Natalie Portman) when talking about making a sacrifice for 'the one that loves the guy that [Sif] loves' but is that an ultimate sacrifice? Update: Sif herself, Jaimie Alexander has taken to twitter to quell fears of Sif's demise in the film. Lol, come on guys, Sif doesn't die ;) relax xo comicbookmovie.com/fansites/Graph…— Jaimie Alexander (@JaimieAlexander) April 27, 2013 Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World," in theaters November 8, 2013, continues »
My casting suggestion for Wonder Woman has been Jaimie Alexander. However, I do know how tricky that might be seeing as though she plays Sif in the Thor franchise. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks the actress would be a good fit for the Amazonian princess. IGN spoke with Alexander and asked her if she was aware of the fan interest in her playing the role: You know, I.m very aware of that, and yeah, it is extremely flattering, because I really did love that character growing »

As hemlines go shorter in anticipation of warmer weather this season, so too do hairstyles.

Wearing a canary-yellow strapless column dress by Marc Bouwer, the willowy brunette, who played Sif in 2011's Thor, looked stunning with her new bob. She joins a [...] »
