'Avengers 2' Toy Photos Offer a Better Look at Hulkbuster

11 hours ago

Last week, Hot Toys debuted a first look at their Iron Man figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing Tony Stark in his Mark Xliii Armor. The figure is incredibly detailed, with the photos giving us a pretty great idea of what the Mark 43 suit will look like on the big screen. Now, Hot Toys has debuted more from their Avengers 2 lineup, offering a sneak peek at Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor in their new costumes. We also get a more detailed look at Hulkbuster and Thanos.

Hot Toys debuted the new lineup of figure at the Toy Soul 2014 Expo this weekend. And as you can see in the tweets below, these toys bring a great idea of what we can expect to see from these main characters in 2015.

North Korea Offers to Help U.S. Find Sony Hackers

11 hours ago

The Sony Hack Attack continues to make headlines throughout the weekend. Shortly after the FBI confirmed they had proof North Korea was behind the devastating infiltration of Sony Pictures internal database infrastructure, which lead to the mass leaking of emails and documents from inside the studio, and eventually culminated in the cancelation of the Christmas Day release of their comedy The Interview, North Korea still claimed they had nothing to do with the cyber-attack. Today, North Korean officials have proposed that both countries form a joint investigation to find the real culprit behind the Sony Hack.

Both CNN and the Associated Press have reported that North Korea is warning of serious consequences if Washington DC fails to agree to a joint probe that will prove that Pyongyang is innocent, and not responsible for the leaking of documents and the terrorist attack threats made against theaters set to show The Interview. »

'Flash': Mark Hamill Talks About His Return as Trickster

12 hours ago

Mark Hamill is experience what some may refer to as a comeback. And 2015 promises to be a big year for the actor. Not only will he reprise his iconic role next December as Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, he'll also appear in the Valentine weekend release Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is already receiving stellar reviews from advanced screenings. But it's the return of an unexpected character that will serve as the cherry on top. Mark Hamill never thought he'd be playing The Trickster a second time, a character he originated on The Flash TV series that ran on CBS in 1990. But The CW reboot has asked him to suit up again. And now, he's talking with IGN about the experience.

The CW is actually having a lot of fun with the original Flash cast. John Wesley Shipp, who played the 90s Barry Allen, is back as Barry's dad in the new Flash. »

While the Sony hack appears to be over for the time being, more information is still coming forward that was leaked from various emails and documents from deep within the studio. By this point, everyone knows that Marvel was working hard to make a deal with Sony to bring Spider-Man into Captain America: Civil War.

'Uncharted' Still Wants Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake?

19 hours ago

While Uncharted is one of those movies we've heard about for years, it seems like Sony is finally getting serious about bringing this video game to the big screen. The studio has set a June 2016 release date, and the adaptation even has a writer and director attached. But it doesn't yet have a leading man. That may be changing soon, as it is rumored that Mark Wahlberg is still being eyed as Nathan 'Nate' Drake.

It's been four years since Mark Wahlberg first confirmed that he was playing Nathan Drake in an Uncharted movie. At the time, he was set to reunite with his I Heart Huckabees and The Fighter director David O. Russell, who was both writing and set to helm this action adventure movie, said to be in the same vein as Indiana Jones. But David O. Russell dropped out in 2011. Mark Wahlberg left the project soon there after. »

We've already seen a number different holiday greetings from Marvel Studios, Star Wars and even The Babadook over the past few days. Sony Pictures Animation is getting in the spirit as well with their own holiday video featuring the characters from their upcoming sequel, Hotel Transylvania 2. The video features Dracula (Adam Sandler), his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) and Jonathan (Andy Samberg) decorating their Christmas tree, in a very unorthodox fashion.

Last week, we showed you the first photo featuring Dracula's father Vlad, voiced by Mel Brooks. The rest of the voice cast includes Frank (Kevin James), Wayne Werewolf (Steve Buscemi), Invisible Man (David Spade) and Eunice (Fran Drescher) and Murray the Mummy (Keegan Michael Key). The story follows a family gathering that brings Dracula's father Vlad to town for the first time in several years, which creates havoc for a number of the hotel's regular guests.

'Batman v Superman': Amy Adams Praises Gal Gadot

19 December 2014 6:12 PM, PST

There has been a lot of talk recently about the lack of women superheroes in comic book movies. While Marvel is looking to rectify that with their female-led Captain Marvel, Warner Bros. and DC will actually beat them to the punch with a standalone Wonder Woman movie. But first, the character will be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And it sounds like this Man of Steel sequel is paving the way for a more girl-friendly genre environment. Star Amy Adams, who reprises her role as Lois Lane, recently spoke with MTV, and revealed how nice it was to have another woman on set in Gal Gadot.

The actress also revealed that this feels more like a Superman sequel to her than a set up for Justice League Part 1. Though, she did have fun interacting with some of the other characters that will eventually make up that superhero ensemble. »

Adam Driver Talks 'Star Wars 7'; New R2D2 Image Debuts

19 December 2014 5:35 PM, PST

Is Adam Driver playing Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens? While we don't see the actor's face in the teaser trailer, we do meet this lone Sith wondering through a snowy landscape. It's possible that the actor is playing the main bad guy, whose journey is said to mirror Luke Skywalker's. But we won't likely know the truth until closer to the release date. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor did discuss the grounding of characters in this new sequel. And he compares it to what we saw in 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.

"I always think back to the original movies and to those quieter moments where Luke is out in A New Hope, and there are the two suns setting. It is the equivalent, basically, of a farm boy dying to get out of his small town and do something bigger. »

19 December 2014 3:51 PM, PST

After Sony Pictures canceled the release of their comedy The Interview, the hacker group G.O.P. seemed to indicate that the copious leaks of Sony emails and documents would stop, if they never release the movie. However, since there were so many leaks from the studio, more news has surfaced, with The Daily Beast uncovering an email from Sony's Amy Pascal, where she states that Idris Elba should be the next actor to play James Bond.
