18 October 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Quite the bit of news has been revealed the past week.  Not only is Robert Downey Jr. in talks to co-star in the third installment of the Captain America franchise, but this may very well usher in one of the biggest storylines in Marvel history, Civil War.  Don’t know what Civil War is and why it’s causing such a fuss?  Collider has your back as we thought it would be a great opportunity to walk you through the origins of the event, its players, its ending, and how it could possibly be orchestrated in the current Marvel movie landscape.  Hit the jump for our in-depth look at the Marvel storyline, Civil War. The Lines Are Drawn Civil War began in 2006 and was created by writer Mark Millar (who also created Kick-Ass) and artist Steve McNiven.  The story begins with a group of young, inexperienced heroes named the New »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Kick-Ass 3′

17 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Mark Millar | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 232pp

When Kick-Ass was introduced to the world by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. not only were we introduced to that him as a character, but more importantly Hit-Girl.  Dave Lizewski aka Kick Ass wasn’t a real superhero, Hit-Girl was, and she made Kick-Ass into everything he was destined to be.  Now we are at Kick-Ass 3 is Dave finally a fully fledged superhero, or still a comic book obsessed wannabe?

Kick-Ass 3 starts with a shocker, Hit-Girl is arrested and stuck in a maximum security jail.  Leaving instructions for Kick-Ass on how to break her out she waits for the day he finally rescues her.  The only problem is he has other things on his mind, mainly a new girlfriend and the Justice Forever team which is fragmenting, and his focus is on everything but being a superhero. »

Robert Downey Jr. may bring Iron Man to 'Captain America 3'

13 October 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have never really gotten along. They may not be enemies, but if not for The Avengers they probably wouldn't be friends, and the abrasive relationship between Iron Man and Captain America has fueled one of the greatest storylines in the modern Marvel Comics universe: Civil War, the epic 2006-07 crossover series that pitted hero against hero. Now comes word that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to join Chris Evans in Captain America 3 in a story that would bring this clash to the big screen, two sources confirm to EW. But it is "far from a done deal, »

Why X-Men and The Fantastic Four should not share the same universe

8 October 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on why X-Men and The Fantastic Four should not share the same universe…

Mark Millar spoke months ago about X-Men and The Fantastic Four sharing the same universe and fans were not happy. Millar later stated that this did not mean they would show up in each others films or anything simply that there may be references to them co-existing. Although writer-producer Simon Kinberg said back in May that the charac ters would “live in discrete universes”, he has now said that a crossover between the X-Men and the Fantastic Four is “not out of the realm of possibility.”

Whereas the Marvel Cinematic Universe planned ahead with building their universe, it seems Fox is just trying to copy that formular. Maybe I am wrong and there may have been plans to have X-Men and the Fantastic Four share the same universe for some time, but I doubt it. »

'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four' Crossover Movie Still a Possibility

6 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has a Fantastic Four reboot currently in post-production that will hit theaters August 2015. This will be followed the next summer by another installment in their more popular Marvel franchise with the sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. And it seems like we should be heading towards a massive crossover between these two properties. It sounds like a legitimate goal for the studio, as Marvel and Disney have already enjoyed great success with their expanded Avengers series and its stand-alones and spinoffs. But in April of this year, comic creator Mark Millar, who is a consultant on both franchises, claimed that, while the two franchise might exist in the same universe, their movies would stand alone. Bottom line, Fox has no plans for a crossover or team-up. But don't fret, true believers, this may just be in the short term.

In the longterm, we may very well see The Fantastic Four and X-Men series merge. »

Simon Kinberg says a crossover between X-Men and The Fantastic Four is “not out of the realm of possibility”

5 October 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it was assumed when a reboot of The Fantastic Four was announced that Marvel’s First Family would inhabit the same universe as the X-Men – owing in no small part to comments from Mark Millar suggesting as much – producer Simon Kinberg downplayed the possibility back in May, stating that the characters “live in discrete universes.” However, judging from Kinberg’s latest comments, it would appear that Fox hasn’t quite made up its mind whether to tie in its two Marvel properties:

“To be honest, I’m so focused on each of the movies right now – I’m so focused on, now we’re post, on Fantastic Four, and making that the best movie it can be,” Kinberg tells ComicBook. “And then we’re in prep on X-Men: Apocalypse, so those are kind of full time jobs. I love the characters, I love the characters in Fantastic Four, and I love the new cast. »

Colin Firth leads the spy game in new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer

23 September 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Move over, James Bond.  There’s a new super suave and just as Britishly-accented spy in a tailored suit heading your way.

Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, a veteran secret service agent who takes a young, troubled upstart  (Taron Egerton) under his dapper wing to teach him the ways of the spy in the upcoming action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service.  Based on the comic book series by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, not much has been released about the film’s plot, but from what we can see in the trailer, Samuel L. Jackson wants to bring a world of hurt to the Kingsman society and the greater population.  And he just might succeed thanks to the help of his henchwoman (Sofia Boutella) who happens to have knives instead of feet.  That’s right.  Knives.  For feet.

Firth isn’t about to let the young upstarts of the secret »

Check Out Colin Firth as an Action Star!

23 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Another movie based on a comic book is coming at you, and this one has Colin Firth! He stars as a secret service agent who recruits a mixed-up young kid (Taron Egerton) in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) actually cowrote the comic book with his Kick-Ass collaborator Mark Millar, so it should be a pretty faithful adaptation. It's cool to see Colin Firth fling a beer mug at a guy using an umbrella handle, especially when it's set to a new track from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding. Have I mentioned Samuel L. Jackson plays a ridiculous-looking villain? This is a must watch. The movie is set for a Feb. 13 release date, so stay tuned for more footage and pictures until then! »

"Kick-Ass 3": 'Hit-Girl' Becomes 'Hit-Woman'

23 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Kick-Ass" and "Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy.

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base including director Quentin Tarantino, that supports Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as young female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass 3".

Kingsman: The Secret Service Continues to Impress in New Trailer

23 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

An all new movie trailer for the upcoming adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book series, Kingsman: The Secret Service, has landed and it continues to look amazing.  While some of the footage has been seen before in conventions, that doesn't prevent the new trailer from standing out.  

I really like this trailer.  I like it a lot actually.  What has me so interested in this film, is that it's taking a lot of traditional movie tropes and ideas, and twisting them around.  Sure, we've all seen the well-dressed super spy with various gadgets, but this is a different take on that.  Instead of being a lone gunmen, we get to see him be a team player and taking someone else under his wing.  On top of that, you have the overt comic book attributes and villains.  While we've seen these ideas before, they're blended together in all new ways. »

Kingsman: The Secret Service - New Action-Packed Trailer

23 September 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released an awesome new trailer for Matthew Vaughn's new film Kingsman: The Secret Service. The trailer features loads of new adrenaline-fueled footage, and it features a new song by Iggy Azaela. It also looks like there are still some unfinished special effects — at least I hope they are unfinished. Regardless, the flick still looks like it will be a ridiculously good time.

The movie is based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and it tells the story of "a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius."

The movie basically comes from the same team of talent that gave us Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class. It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Kingsman: The Secret Service »

Colin Firth teaches manners in new Kingsman: The Secret Service trailer

23 September 2014 1:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service has released a new trailer.

The trailer spotlights Colin Firth's Harry Hart bar room brawl from the spy action comedy.

The film centres around the older spy, who enlists his late colleague's shiftless son Eggsy (Taron Egerton) into the international spy ring.

The young man proves a talented pupil, but will it be enough to stop a global threat by the villain Valentine (Samuel L Jackson)?

Mark Strong and Michael Caine also feature in the 20th Century Fox film.

The story was created by Vaughn and Mark Millar, who adapted the story into a comic with Dave Gibbons.

Kingsman: The Secret Service will be released on February 5, 2015 in the UK and February 13 in the Us. »

New Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

23 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The latest trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service has come online, and I have to say Matthew Vaughn's adaption of the comic book he and Mark Millar co-created looks pretty damn good! Teaming up with script writer Jane Goldman (after Kick-Ass, Stardust, and X-Men: First Class), Kingsman, just like Kick-Ass, sees Vaughn putting his own inimitable stamp on the spy genre, with Colin Firth, in full on bad ass mode (yes, really) as the old school, veteran spy taking Taron Egerton's street kid under his wing. Throw in plenty of action, dry British wit, and Samuel L. Jackson as a pretty fun villain, and Kingsman: The Secret Service should be high on your must-watch list. Released: 5th February 2015 (Irl/U.K.)/ 13th February 2015 (U.S.) »

New trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service

22 September 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the X-Men: First Class/Kick-Ass team comes the film of Dave Gibbons' & Mark Millar's Kingsman: The Secret Service. Here's the trailer.

If the original plan had stayed in tact, we'd be weeks away from seeing Kingsman: The Secret Service. 20th Century Fox has since put the movie back to February 13th 2015 - it's to do battle with Fifty Shades Of Grey - yet as this new trailer demonstrates, there's a lot to look forward to here.

Colin Firth, Samuel L Jackson and Michael Caine lead the grown-ups, in a film that tells the story of how a top secret spy organisation recruits a raw street kid to basically be the next James Bond. Matthew Vaughn - of Kick-Ass, Stardust and X-Men: First Class vintage - is directing, with Jane Goldman on scripting duties with him (adapting the comic book work of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons).

New Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

22 September 2014 9:16 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’ve already had one full trailer for Matthew Vaughn’s latest Mark Millar adaptation, Kingsman: The Secret Service. You might remember that we had the director himself taking us through that first look. Here comes a second promo, which features a few new scenes. Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, a suited, booted and immaculately mannered gentleman spy, one of the finest that bespoke espionage agency the Kingsmen has to offer. He takes young, chav-tastic upstart Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) under his wing after spotting real potential in the young man.The agency could use some fresh blood, particularly with the diabolic, operatic Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson clearly having a ball chewing the scenery as a flamboyant Bond-throwback villain) launching a terrifying scheme to change the world by nefarious means.With the likes of Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson and Vaughn stalwart Mark Strong in the cast, »
