Kevin Feige confirms fan theory about Stan Lee and his Marvel cameos

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Minor spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 follow…

Stan Lee made his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe this weekend with his latest – and undoubtedly most out there – cameo to date, as the Marvel legend sits chatting to the Watchers during a brief sequence (and post-credit scene) in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

His appearance alongside the Watchers delivers a nod to the long-standing fan theory that, given his multitude of cameos in the McU (and other non-Marvel Studios produced movies), he’s actually the cosmic being Uatu. And while it seems that isn’t exactly the case, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has now confirmed that Lee is indeed portraying the same character in each of his appearances, traversing space and time as he observes the goings on of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Stan Lee clearly exists, you know, above and apart from the reality of all the films, »

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

28 April 2017 10:24 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

With so many films in the Marvel cinematic universe over the years, it can be easy for particular entries to disappear amongst the repetitive superhero format that seems to be churned out on a regular basis. However, every now and then one of them carves it’s own unique identity and stands out head and shoulders above the crowd. Guardians of the Galaxy did this in 2014 with it’s strong emphasis on pop culture references and tongue-in-cheek humour and I’m happy to say Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the trend.

We catch up with the group in the midst of them fighting a giant octopus-like creature initiating another fantastic credit sequence set to Elo’s Mr Blue Sky rivalling that of the first film. This opening sets the tone of the film perfectly, reminding audiences that – again – this is going to be no ordinary Marvel film. With »

Avengers 3 Is Shooting at Hogwarts Set from Harry Potter

28 April 2017 4:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way since late January on Marvel's highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War, which has been filmed in the U.K. and Atlanta, with the production also gearing up for a New York City shoot next month. Today we have word that this Avengers sequel is prepping for an exterior shoot in London, using a famous location previously used in the iconic Harry Potter franchise. While we don't expect to see any Hogwarts students being thrown in the mix of this Marvel adventure, this location was previously used for several different parts of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry throughout the Harry Potter movie franchise.

The Tab reports that production is taking place at Durham Cathedral in London, after the site spotted several vehicles that had cards identifying which production department they were being used for. The site also spotted a small logo on each card, which read "Mary Lou, »

Everything you need to know before watching Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Everything you need to know before watching Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Zachary Dent4/28/2017 3:41:00 Pm

You don't need to be an avid comic book reader to enjoy the latest installment of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. From what we've seen this movie is going to be an action-packed thrill ride that everyone can enjoy. Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the 2nd movie of the franchise but don't worry if you haven't seen the first, we've got your back!

There are a lot of recurring characters to keep track of such as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Drax (Dave Bautista), Yondu (Michael Rooker), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and our personal favourite, Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). This star studded cast has us excited and if you haven't seen »

We have not seen the Real Groot yet, says Vin Diesel

28 April 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Groot was one of the most lovable characters in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The gentle giant stole fans hearts when the movie premiered, and has continued that trend as the adorable Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It seems that Groot is a creature of many faces, and Vin Diesel doesn’t think that we have seen the coolest one yet. Speaking to USA Today, Vin Diesel promised fans that we have not seen anything yet:

“The first Groot we saw was a freshman in college. This [Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2] Groot is in nursery school. Wait ’til we see the fully-fledged working-man Groot. Wait ’til we see Groot!“

See Also: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4 would feature a new roster of characters, according to James Gunn

As a non-reader of the comic, it will be interesting to see what grown-up Groot looks like. In the meantime, here »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

28 April 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow: you know these names as superheroes who comprise a team – the Avengers. Star-Lord, Drax The Destroyer, Gamora: these are also superheroes who make up a team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. So what – if anything – differentiates these two savior squads? An Avengers film thrills through action, while Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 strikes development depth and marvels at cosmic swirls of psychotropic ether.

By way of sequel furtherment, James Gunn has created far more than an offbeat Marvel franchise. His collection of misfits represent the most personal, emotionally-tethered personas across the entire McU, soulful and composed beyond marketable costumes or A-list names. Soak in the psychedelics, kick out the jams and zoom alongside the galaxy’s zaniest outlaws once again – Vol. 2 rocks with the goofiness of an air-guitar virtuoso, even if storytelling skips a few beats (Nicole Perlman does not return as co-writer).

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson Can’t Save ‘The Circle’ [Tribeca Review]

28 April 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Based on Dave Eggers’ novel about the eponymous tech company, “The Circle” feels more like a designer’s mock-up than a fully formed product. Beautifully shot by Matthew Libatique with cool injections of The Circle’s pervasive technology onscreen, the film has a sleek look benefitting its subject, but it doesn’t actually work as a movie.

With the help of her friend Annie (Karen Gillan), Mae (Emma Watson) wins a coveted job in customer experience at tech giant The Circle, changing her life for the better.

The Circle Review [Tribeca 2017]

27 April 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a scene in The Circle in which Tom Hanks walks onto a stage in front of hundreds of adoring workers and proceeds to lay out a plan for a world in which privacy is not only a thing of the past, but is something that we give up completely and voluntarily. He presents his case so convincingly that it’s only several minutes in that we, the viewers, realize just how evil the whole concept is. It’s an excellent sequence, as Hanks grins and jokes like a malevolent Steve Jobs, and it belongs in a film worthy of the talent on that stage. The Circle is not that film, though.

The Circle tells the story of Mae Holland (Emma Watson), the newest employee at a social media tech company co-founded by Eamonn Bailey (Hanks) and Stenton (Patton Oswalt), where she’s been recruited as a “customer experience” representative, »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4 would feature a new roster of characters, according to James Gunn

27 April 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has only just started hitting theaters worldwide, director James Gunn and the folks over at Marvel Studios are already looking to the future of the franchise.

Thanks to a recent announcement from Gunn, it’s publicly known that he’ll be returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but past that point, the Guardians’ place in the McU is more unknown. However, in a recent interview the Toronto Sun, Gunn revealed what could become of the beloved franchise in a post-Avengers: Infinity War and Guardians Vol. 3 world.

While speaking about the series, the director said, “I think the first three movies tell a single story and that story is pretty simple. I think that there could be a Guardians Vol. 4, but it would not be the same. It would not be the same group… basically the story of this group ends with Vol. »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Star Karen Gillan on the Controversy Surrounding Her Jumanji Outfit

To the fans who were outraged by Karen Gillan’s outfit in the promotional photo for the upcoming Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie, don’t worry — her character is with you, and Gillan understands why it might have upset some fans.

When the 29-year-old actress stopped by People Now to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, she also shared her response to the backlash from moviegoers over her “super sexualized” costume.

“I was a little surprised just because it was quite extreme, but I understand gender equality is very much at the forefront,” she says. “It’s »

Chris Sullivan "Was in Awe" Filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 With Sylvester Stallone

27 April 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Of the thousands of people who will flock to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 when it hits theaters on May 5, there's a good chance many of them will watch it start to finish without ever realizing Chris Sullivan has been on screen. The This Is Us actor, who plays Toby on the beloved drama, is hidden under layers and layers of thick facial prosthetics to help him embody one of Marvel's more obscure villains, Taserface (yes, Taserface). Because the character has never been on screen before and isn't necessarily a fan favorite, it gave Sullivan the rare opportunity to truly make it his own. "Before this project, I'd never even asked myself what an intergalactic space pirate would be like," he joked with Popsugar during a recent interview. "There are no rules. It certainly took a little bit of the pressure off of meeting expectations, as far as what he's supposed to be, »

James Gunn is hoping to keep Sylvester Stallone in the McU

27 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn, is hoping to encourage Sylvester Stallone to continue his journey in the McU beyond his upcoming debut in the Marvel sequel.

Having learned from Sly himself his thoughts on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that he is having a great time so far, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see him perhaps pop up again beyond his upcoming role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

And this is just what director James Gunn has in mind, wanting to make him, and his character, a mainstay component of the Marvel franchise.

During a recent interview with the Toronto Sun, Gunn said, “It’s my plan to have Sly — and I talked to him last night — to find a place for him in the future of the Marvel Universe.”

A lot of this will surely depends on audience reactions to his performance and character, »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Review #2: A-Holes Return with Heart to Spare

27 April 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The first thing almost anyone will ask someone who has seen a new movie sequel, superhero or otherwise: "Is it better than the first?" By and large, it's an impossible question to answer, unless you're so in tuned with this person's taste that you feel comfortable enough in answering on their behalf. But, also, straight up, the number of sequels that are actually "better" than their predecessors are incredibly few and far between. The exceptions, like The Dark Knight and Spider-Man 2 are far outnumbered by the likes of Fantastic Four: The Silver Surfer, Batman Returns and even the McU is not immune, with Iron Man 2, not to mention the countless non-superhero sequels that fall far short of their predecessors. While a vast majority of the early reactions to Guardians 2 were positive, most believed it wasn't better than the original, but I just have to disagree. I do in »

The Circle Review: A Sledgehammer Satire of Social Media

27 April 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Cover your webcam, muffle your cellphone, you're not paranoid, they really are watching you. Welcome to the world depicted in The Circle, a sledgehammer satire of privacy and pesonal freedom. The film puts a bullseye on the Big Brother reach of companies like Google and Facebook. The ideals and concerns presented are valid, but the execution is overdone and blase. We get the message. It's delivered via firehose.

Emma Watson stars as Mae Holland, a customer service rep struggling to get by. Her best friend, Annie (Karen Gillan), gets her a job at The Circle, a behemoth internet company that has pioneered social media. It's charismatic CEO, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), belts out tech breakthroughs and wisdom to the cult-like employees a la Steve Jobs. Mae at first struggles to fit into the ultra-connected corporate culture. But personal issues at home and with a childhood friend (Ellar Coltrane) soon has »

Four Pulsing TV Spots For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Blast Online As A New Poster Rallies The Crew

27 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Marvel’s well-oiled marketing machine beginning to operate at full tilt, today heralds the arrival of not one, not two, but four TV spots for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn’s spacefaring sequel and one of the most-anticipated movies of 2017.

And at least so far, Guardians 2 is faring relatively well among critics – the early consensus deemed Gunn’s follow-up to be a touching, spectacular white-knuckle ride that fell just short of its beloved progenitor – and box office analysts estimate that Star-Lord and the gang are poised to pull in around $85m-$100 million from international markets this coming weekend. Those figures make for an impressive opening overseas, and it’ll be interesting to find out how that momentum carries over to the sequel’s domestic release on May 5th. Three years ago, and in spite of naysayers, Guardians of the Galaxy managed to rake in an eye-watering $773 million during its theatrical run, »

Nebula Was Almost Killed Off In The First Guardians Of the Galaxy Film

27 April 2017 9:06 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

It should be no surprise to hear that there were story changes during the development process of a film. Writing, on any level, is pretty much an iterative process. You outline, you write, you rewrite, and rewrite, and rewrite, and often times, you’re rewriting all the way through the editing process.

Sometimes there’s a character who dies in draft one, and somehow cheats death at some point along the way. It happened with Poe Dameron in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens — he was originally supposed to die in that Tie fighter crash at the start of the film — and even before that, there was apparently a character that wasn’t supposed to survive to the closing credits of her respective film. I’m talking about Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy
