A New Indiana Jones Movie Is Happening, Though It May Be Awhile

1 hour ago

The last time we saw famed archaeologist and beloved cinematic icon Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), he was tying the knot with his soul mate, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), at the tail end of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Fans wondered if they.d ever see their hero in action again. Today, we know that answer. During an interview with Vanity Fair that primarily focused on Star Wars, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy opened up about the future of the Indiana Jones franchise, which Disney purchased from Paramount (sort of) in 2012. And in talking about their plans for Indy, Kennedy confessed: [Another Indy movie] will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I.m not quite sure. We haven.t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it." Grab your whip and fedora, and fire up the John Williams soundtrack. »

In a separate podcast, Whedon revealed that Quicksilver almost was part of the New Avengers team that Captain America (Chris Evans) put together in the closing moments of Age of Ultron. And now, I can share with you the fact that Taylor-Johnson hopes he can stay in the McU. somehow.

Mark Ruffalo Has The Perfect Response To The Joss Whedon, Black Widow Controversy

3 hours ago

Much like Hawkeye, Black Widow has never really received the attention she deserves. But unlike Hawkeye, she.s an interesting female character, which, as we know, is hard to come by in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Joss Whedon stepped up her game in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but fans are still decrying her portrayal as misogynistic and underwhelming. Fortunately, both Widow and Whedon have Hulk himself to stand up to the harsher critics.  The ongoing controversy over the handling of Black Widow was thrown in Mark Ruffalo.s face on Twitter, of all places. A fan responded to one of the actor.s earlier tweets by calling the portrayal of Natasha Romanoff "nothing but a love interest who needed saving." Ruffalo, in turn, responded with the following.  @thordinsons @josswhedon Weird I thought he turned Banner into a love interest that needed saving. .

Jack Black's Student Film From High School Is Everything You'd Hope For

13 hours ago

Jack Black is one of those individuals that you simply assume was born a movie star. It.s just impossible to imagine him living a normal life and not flaunting his stuff and playing up to a camera. But, of course, like everyone else Jack Black had to hone his craft and spent several years developing his on-screen persona before he hit it big in Hollywood. And now early footage of Jack Black starring in a student film in the 1980s has emerged and it showcases the raw energy that has epitomized the comedian throughout his career. First things first: it turns out that Jack Black was a stone-cold fox during his years at Crossroads School in Santa Monica, California. While he.s mostly known now for being slightly rotund but still a national treasure, Black is stick-thin in Too Far From Norm, which was shot back in 1987 by director »

Marvel Wanted To Cut A Lot Out Of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron

14 hours ago

Joss Whedon isn.t one to keep his thoughts to himself. Not only did he recently chastise Jurassic World because of a clip that he believed to be sexist, but he.s also made it known that he wanted Daredevil to be a film rather than a TV series, and admitted that Edgar Wright.s Ant-Man script was the best superhero screenplay he.d ever read. So it.s no surprise to hear Whedon reveal that that there were several disagreements between himself and Marvel during the Avengers: Age Of Ultron editing process. In fact, he revealed that they wanted an awful lot of the blockbuster to be cut out of from the final film. Whedon made this admission while sitting in as a guest on the Empire Film Podcast, and he made it clear that Marvel was never big fans on the Age Of Ultron dream sequences that were »

San Andreas. final, enthralling trailer proves that the former WWE star and now bona-fide Hollywood darling won.t let a little thing like a mammoth natural disaster break up his family.

You can check out the third and final trailer for the disaster epic below. I.m going to put it out there and admit that I really, really liked that. While the relationship between Dwayne Johnson.s rescue helicopter pilot, his estranged wife (Carla Gugino), and their daughter Alexandra Daddario looks a little lame and hackneyed there.s no denying that the scenes of devastation look truly spectacular.

Why Tom Hardy Bailed On Suicide Squad

18 hours ago

Tom Hardy.s Suicide Squad departure was both a big blow to the film itself and movie fans across the world who pined to see how his bombastic screen presence would coincide with the character of Rick Flag. As it turns out, the English actor was just as disappointed as the rest of us when he was forced to drop out of the blockbuster, and he.s now explained that a scheduling conflict meant that he had no choice in the matter. Hardy, who is currently at the beginning of his Mad Max: Fury Road press duties, spoke to Collider about his Suicide Squad omission, admitting that because filming on Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.s The Revenant had overshot by three months he just didn.t have the time to portray the DC villain.

America Will Have A New President In Independence Day 2

19 hours ago

Bill Pullman may be back for Independence Day 2, but it.s not going to be as the leader of the free world. As it turns out, in the 20 years since Roland Emmerich.s original alien invasion disaster flick, the United States has elected a new President, and it.s Sela Ward. Pullman will still play the same character, Thomas J. Whitmore, but according to Deadline, it.s Ward who resides in the White House, or whatever structure they construct to take the place of the building that was so memorably leveled by extraterrestrials in 1996. Ward will reportedly play President Lanford, no first name at the moment, who now sits in the big chair when the action commences on the long in development sequel. This is not Ward.s first time in an epic scale disaster movie, nor is it her first time working with Emmerich. The two teamed up »

19 hours ago

In 2016, Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War will be launching what is known as Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But while the film is just the first piece in a rather large puzzle, evidently it will be immediately sewing seeds for Marvel Studios' biggest event yet: the two-parter Avengers: Infinity War, set to play out in 2018 and 2019. Chris Evans, who will obviously be headlining Captain America: Civil War, recently chatted with MTV about his role in the 2016 blockbuster, and while answering the question of whether or not the movie will feel more like another Avengers title, the actor revealed that what will go down in the movie will set the stage for the big time arrival of Thanos and his epic quest to collect the Infinity Stones and acquire the powers of a god.

19 hours ago

A few weeks back, we reported on the financial reasons why small German movie theaters were boycotting Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will end up being one of the most profitable movies of the calendar year. Disney, it seemed, was playing hardball with some important financial figures, and that practice might be stretching across the Atlantic and into the States. The Wall Street Journal reports that movie-theater operators are quarreling with The Walt Disney Co. about studio-imposed conditions placed on theaters that wanted to screen The Avengers: Age of Ultron… which, in practice, likely is Every movie theater in the U.S. At issue are two sticking points: When theaters can offer matinee discounts to patrons; and when theaters can program alternate showings of Whedon’s blockbuster with a different movie on the same screen. Both issues boil down to the studio’ »

Keanu Reeves Will Return For John Wick 2, Get The Details

20 hours ago

Surely the idea of a John Wick 2 without the presence of Keanu Reeves sounds ridiculous, but the truth of the matter is that the star of the action-packed first film wasn't part of the official announcement about the sequel three months ago. Thankfully, you can all stop dreading the idea of a Reeves-less John Wick 2, because it has been revealed that he will indeed be back. Lionsgate announced the developing project in a press release, confirming not only Keanu Reeves, but also the return of directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Unfortunately, the only thing that even comes close to resembling a plot description for John Wick 2 is the following intensely vague sentence: In the follow up to last year.s adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption thriller, legendary hit man John Wick is back. In the first John Wick, which was just released this past October, »

Apparently There's A Moon That Looks Like The Death Star

21 hours ago

Being as it.s Star Wars day and all, I can.t think of a better time to talk about this little nugget of information. Nasa shared an image of Saturn.s moon Mimas, which, you may very well notice, bears a striking resemblance to the Death Star from Star Wars: Episode IV.A New Hope. Be glad you don.t look up into the sky and see this bad boy every night. That would be terrifying Discovered in 1789 by British astronomer William Herschel, Mimas is both the smallest and closest of Saturn.s moons. 400 km in diameter, the surface of the satellite is pocked with craters, but it.s the biggest one that really makes this look like the Death Star. Its name is Herschel, which, as you probably guessed, got its name from the man who discovered the orb in the first place. Herschel is 130 km across, »

Watch What Happens When Comic Book Deadpool Takes On X-Men Origins Deadpool

22 hours ago

Comic book fans are well aware that the Wade Wilson seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was barely reminiscent of his comic book counterpart. This understandably angered many fans, and fortunately 2016.s Deadpool will remedy this by giving us the snarky and fourth wall-breaking Merc With A Mouth we know so well. In the meantime, we now have a video pitting comic book Deadpool against the Origins Deadpool video game-style, letting the former dish out some well-deserved justice against the latter. Check it out! The video, made by YouTube user ismahawk, starts with the "player" choosing which characters will fight each other, and Origins Deadpool is humorously labeled as an alternate Deadpool costume. At the beginning of the battle, comic book Deadpool is surprised that his opponent is supposed to be a version of him and subsequently states, "Ugh, somebody better get fired for this." Somehow, Wade, I doubt anyone was. »
