Which actor fit the character better, which character looked cooler, who held truer to the character of the comics, etc. Director Joss Whedon shared a few of his thoughts on this very subject and it sounds like he's pretty confident in their ucoming McU rendition of Pietro Maximoff.

Spectre Will Open With This Thrilling Scene

16 hours ago

It has all been leading up to the Day of the Dead. It’s Sam Mendes’ fourth day of shooting the opening sequences of the new James Bond movie, Spectre, on location in Mexico City. Thousands of extras (1,500 to be exact), donning traditional face paint, parade down the street in celebration of the Mexican holiday. They’re moving to the beat of the drummers banging away on an ornamented stage surrounded by acrobats. And emerging from within all the raucous is an epic chase between 007 and his target.  This is the only day throughout the entire production of Spectre that members of the media are able to attend. So a barrage of journalists, both foreign and domestic, are crowding the balcony at the Gran Hotel Ciudad de Mexico to get a glimpse of the action in Zocalo Square below.

X-Men: Apocalypse Is Probably Adding Yet Another Classic Female Mutant Hero

18 hours ago

X-Men: Apocalypse has been accumulating a diverse selection of mutants this week. On Tuesday we learned that Wolverine, an adult Storm and Gambit would be making cameo appearances, and the next day it was announced that Lana Condor had been cast as Jubilee. Now Psylocke is the latest female hero that has been added to the 2016 blockbuster.s lineup.  Film writer Jeff Sneider said on Meet The Movie Press today that she will be the latest "B-team mutant" that Bryan Singer has added to X-Men: Apocalypse. An actress hasn.t been found yet to play her, but if it.s not leaked by a press outlet beforehand, presumably we can expect Singer to announce the casting on his Instagram account like he did with Condor, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Hardy. Psylocke.s civilian identity Betsy Braddock made her comic book debut in 1976 in the Marvel UK series Captain Britain. It »

James Bond's Spectre Trailer Is Suspenseful, Mysterious And Incredible

19 hours ago

Following up Skyfall is no easy task. Sam Mendes. first crack at a James Bond thriller produced the most lucrative chapter in the ongoing series, as well as a near-universally praised installment by critics and fans. 007.s producers wisely brought Mendes back into the fold for Spectre, which dropped its first footage below. Watch it now! "You are a kite, dancing in a hurricane," James Bond is told by the mysterious and deadly Mr. White, who we think that Bond (Daniel Craig) has been sent to kill. That doesn.t sound good for our favorite spy with a license to kill. We also learn in this brief but informative clip that 007 has a secret, which he has been holding close to the vest because he was unable to trust anyone. Do you think that will change any time soon? It.s interesting to learn that, unlike other Bond films, Spectre »

22 hours ago

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Mid last year it was announced Steven Spielberg would direct an adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's classic The Bfg. With a still only a small cast thus far announced, the project has most definitely generated some fan interest with the latest addition of Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader. The announcement of Hader's joining the live-action project came earlier yesterday and it looks as though he will be filling some pretty big shoes, literally. As reported by Deadline, the SNL comedian is boarding the film in the role of one of the giants. Dahl's original children's book follows a little girl by the name of Sophie who lives at an orphanage run by Mrs. Clonkers.

23 hours ago

Were you a little bit disappointed by the first Terminator Genisys trailer?

Well, it also helps that there is tons of new action scenes in the clip, too. You check out the latest footage for Terminator Genisys below. It.s a start. The plethora of winks and nods to the James Cameron.s Terminator films in the first Genisys trailers hinted that it would make the same mistakes as Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines and Terminator Salvation.

23 hours ago

At this point we might as well give Captain Marvel the award for Most Rumors Surrounding An Upcoming Marvel Movie Character. Besides speculation over which actress will be playing Carol Danvers in the McU, there were rumors even before her solo film was announced in October that she would debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Earlier this week, the rumor of her appearing in the May blockbuster’s post-credits sequence rose again, though it was unconfirmed. Now, only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time it’s not looking good for the heroine. Sources close to the production have told Nerdist that Carol Danvers will not be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Host Jessica Chobot acknowledges that the often-mentioned post-credits sequence would be one way we could have seen her, but as it stands now it’s more likely »

Why Fast & Furious 7 Is In For A Huge Legal Fight In Thailand

27 March 2015 11:12 AM, PDT

Furious 7 is poised to ride into theaters next weekend on a cloud of burning rubber smoke and adrenaline, likely breaking April box office records in the process. While it.s causing action fans in America to salivate at the prospect of cars parachuting out of an airplane, in Thailand it.s causing a huge legal fuss instead. Variety reports that the release of the James Wan (Saw) directed actioner has been delayed in the Southeast Asian nation due in part to one of its stars, Tony Jaa. Jaa hails from Thailand and is probably the most recognized cinematic martial arts badass in the world right now. In the court injunction that halted the Furious 7 release, originally schedule for April 1, Sahamongkol Films alleges a breach of contract against Jaa, Universal Pictures, and United International Pictures. This could lead to a lengthy legal battle and delay the film even further. »

What Suicide Squad Is Doing With Jai Courtney's Character Boomerang

27 March 2015 10:56 AM, PDT

Among the many DC supervillains lending their skills to Suicide Squad next year is Digger Harkness, a.k.a. Boomerang, played by Terminator Genisys star Jai Courtney. Compared to characters like Joker and Deadshot, not much has been said about what the film has planned for the projectile throwing criminal, but he.ll be one of the individuals who is sent out on dangerous missions by the U.S. government in exchange for leniency. While Boomerang.s personality is still a mystery (i.e. will he be taken seriously or act as the comic relief), we.ve now learned that the character in the film can be described in three words: rock and roll. The production is experimenting with several looks for Boomerang, but Latino Review's El Maiymbe describes the overall ensemble as "very hard rock influenced." As an example, at one point he wears a Pantera shirt with his »

27 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT

Matthew McConaughey.s recent cinematic renaissance looks set to continue after it was confirmed that he.d become attached to The Billionaire.s Vinegar, an intriguing tale of deception, wine and Thomas Jefferson.  Deadline was the first to reveal that the Academy Award-winning actor has signed up to star in The Billionare.s Vinegar, which will come from Sony Pictures and revolve around an auctioned cache of wine bottles that were allegedly owned by Thomas Jefferson.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Will Headline American Force Majeure Remake

27 March 2015 10:12 AM, PDT

It shouldn’t be a surprise at this point, but every time a recent, acclaimed, international picture gets an English-language remake, you always have to wonder why and fear it’s going to get screwed up. The latest film to go through this process is Ruben Östlund’s biting 2014 drama, Force Majeure, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus is in negotiations to star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox Searchlight recently acquired the rights to the film, and the Veep and Seinfeld star will not only appear in the picture, but serve as a producer as well. One of the best films of last year, Force Majeure cleaned up at the Guldbagge Awards (Sweden’s Oscars), took home a Jury Prize at Cannes, was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globes, and was Sweden’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the »

Expendables 4? Here's What Jason Statham Says

27 March 2015 9:27 AM, PDT

Whether or not Expendables 4 will happen is anybody's guess. What we do know is that Jason Statham still seems totally jazzed at the prospect of acting in the next installment, provided it eventually gets off the ground. When asked in a recent interview with IGN if the actor would be interested in returning to the franchise for another sequel, Statham had nothing but positive things to say about Expendables mastermind Sylvester Stallone and the idea of reprising his role of Lee Christmas in Expendables 4. Here's what he had to say: Working with Sylvester Stallone is beyond a pinch yourself moment. I remember growing up watching his films. And to be directed by him and to be in a movie that he's produced and to be shoulder to shoulder with Sly is a privilege any man who loves action movies would never turn their nose up at. I »

First Look At Deadpool's Suit In The Ryan Reynolds Movie

27 March 2015 9:23 AM, PDT

There.s nothing more frustrating than when a superhero movie drastically changes a hero or villain.s look. Thankfully, Deadpool isn.t going to alter the overall look for the "merc with a mouth," according to leading man Ryan Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds posted this first, amusing look at Deadpool on his Twitter feed, and everything about it is a Win. The sexy pose, on a bear-skin rug in front of a warm, romantic fire is perfect placement for the sarcastic anti-hero. And the tweak to Spider-Man.s classic motto about great power and great responsibility is a nice . if not-too-subtle . flip of the bird to Marvel.s growing cinematic universe. Though we.d be lying -- and so, too, would Reynolds . if he said he didn.t one day dream of seeing Wade Winston Wilson in a Marvel movie. possibly alongside the new Spider-Man (whomever that may be).

The Southpaw Trailer Promises The Best Boxing Movie In Years

27 March 2015 8:58 AM, PDT

What is it about boxing dramas that tug so heavily on our heartstrings? Even during March Madness, there.s nothing quite as sentimental, as "underdog," as the sight of a boxer hammering away at impossible odds to achieve some form of victory. So you.ll understand why we were dabbing away tears as we cheered loudly at the latest trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal.s boxing drama, Southpaw. Check it out. There doesn.t seem to be anything on display in Southpaw that we haven.t seen in countless boxing movies over the years, from Rocky to the recent The Fighter. And yet, I.m ready to start handing everyone in the above clip the Oscars. Jake Gyllenhaal transforms himself, yet again, for the benefit of a role, here playing troubled fighter Billy "The Great" Hope, a Junior Middleweight Boxing Champion of the World who endures several personal tragedies that influence »

The Avengers 2 Hydra Suits Borrow Something Important From An Early Marvel Movie

27 March 2015 8:56 AM, PDT

As Marvel moves into the final promotional push for Avengers: Age of Ultron, we.re gradually learning more and more about the blockbuster-to-be. This includes a new image making the rounds that shows off how Hyrdra plans to make use of some tech scrounged from the aftermath of an earlier Marvel movie. Just a heads up, but there is a pretty serious Spoiler beyond this point. You.ve been warned. You.re likely familiar with the sprawling climactic battle from The Avengers. You remember the one, where Loki opened a portal and let an army of Chitauri warriors loose on Manhattan. We knew that incident unleashed a massive ripple effect, and we.ve been watching the consequences play out. Comic Book Movie has this new still that shows another unexpected effect: Hydra has started using otherworldly Chitauri tech for their own nefarious purposes. That.s not going to be good »

Everything Explodes In The Latest Mad Max: Fury Road Footage

27 March 2015 8:48 AM, PDT

The first clips for Mad Max: Fury Road have proven that the fourth film of George Miller’s cult franchise is going to be one of the must-see films of the summer. And the latest 15-second teaser for Fury Road reinforces all of the reasons why anticipation is currently at a fever pitch for the film, simply by blowing everything up.  Mad Max: Fury Road is the first film of the series for 30 years, and it looks as though co-writer and director George Miller (who previously had a hand in the three preceding Mad Max films) has had a lot of fun utilizing the $150 million budget that was at his disposal.  The latest teaser for Mad Max: Fury Road (which is rightfully entitled Explosion) only gives us a brief look at the fiery flick's leading pair of Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, but it does suggest »
