Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing domestic movie of 2014

11 hours ago

Having crossed the $500 million mark earlier in the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing release of 2014 in North America. Guardians is projected to finish the Labor Day weekend with around $277 million in total, and is expected to fend off competition from The November Man and As Above, So Below to retain top spot over the four-day weekend.

Liam Neeson would return as Ra’s al Ghul for Arrow “in a heartbeat”

20 hours ago

We’re still waiting to hear who will portray Ra’s al Ghul for his starring role as the main villain of Arrow season 3, but it seems that Liam Neeson is more than willing to reprise his role from Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, should the opportunity present itself.

“No, I haven’t [been approached], I haven’t at all,” Neeson tells MTV during a promotional interview for his new film A Walk Among the Tombstones. “I would [do it], in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah. Very much so.”

While Neeson is keen, it is of course unlikely that we’ll see him joining The CW show, but he did offer up some advice for whoever ends up suceeding him in the role:

“They have to believe in their philosophy. Ra’s al Ghul absolutely believed what he was doing was ultimately saving civilization, and it »

Why Marvel Movies Will Only Get Better From Here‏

22 hours ago

Anthony Stokes on why Marvel movies will only get better from here….‏ 

After the massive success of comic book movies over the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about the superhero bubble bursting and that the trend will come to an end. For Marvel Studios, there’s also the issue that many of their lead actors contracts are coming to an end in the next few years. Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. specifically may not have many more Marvel movies under their belt, with Robert’s age becoming a factor and Chris Evans seemingly wanting to kickstart the second leg of his career doing more meaningful intimate projects. But fear not. Not only do I think Marvel will be just fine without their core Avengers, but they might do even better. Creatively at least.

In response to the question of whether the comic book movie trend is sustainable, »

Meanwhile, co-star Jesse Eisenberg has spoken briefly about his role as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, stating that: “They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I… You know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny… There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own. »

29 August 2014 12:08 PM, PDT

Marvel and ABC’s Agent Carter has kicked off its casting, with Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) and Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill) joining Hayley Atwell in the upcoming series, which will explore the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. following the events of Captain America: The First Avenger.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, while Murray is set as Agent Jack Thompson, both of whom meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the pre-s.H.I.E.L.D. Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City.”

The news confirms a report from back in July which stated that Sousa and Thompson would be appearing as supporting characters in the show. Assuming no other names have been changed, we should expect Deputy Director Roger Hooley, Agent Edward Hutchins and waitress Angie Martinelli to be cast soon.

Supernatural star joins Arrow as Cupid

29 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT

We’re still waiting on word as to who will be playing Ra’s al Ghul in the upcoming third season of Arrow, but in the meantime The CW has announced that another villain has joined the roster with former Supernatural actress Amy Gumenick signing on to play Carrie Cutter, a.k.a. Cupid, who EW describes as “a lethal villainness with a dangerously obsessive crush on The Arrow.”

“I always loved the idea of Green Arrow having a crazed fan,” states Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “When I was writing the comic book, my big goal was to create a villain who would last. Cupid has since appeared in the DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network, and to have her fight our TV Arrow is so much more than I ever could have hoped for the character.”

Wesley Snipes rumoured to be returning as Blade

29 August 2014 11:26 AM, PDT

It’s probably worth beginning this post with a warning – it’s almost certain that this “report” is a complete fabrication, without a shred of truth to it. So, with that out of the way…

According the New York Daily News, Wesley Snipes has signed a deal to return as the Daywalker in a fourth instalment of the Blade franchise, netting $3 million upfront, plus a cut of the profits.

The article makes no mention of the fact that New Line – the studio behind the original Blade trilogy – have subsequently lost the rights to the franchise, which is now back with Marvel Studios.

We’ve heard absolutely nothing in the way of rumours that Marvel has any plans to introduce Blade into the Cinematic Universe, and if and when they do decide to do so – be it as a movie of TV series – it is highly, highly unlikely that they’ll »
