There has been a great deal of talk amongst fans recently about Marvel adapting Mark Millar’s Civil War to the big screen, with some offering criticism as to why it can’t happen, and others eager to see this story arc adapted into a live action movie. Is there is a chance that Avengers 3 could actually be an adaptation of that storyline?
Some people will immediately jump to the fact that Thanos will likely be the villain for Avengers 3, so the Civil War storyline would be redundant. I say that Thanos may not be the villain until Avengers 4. This may sound stupid to some, but remember we all assumed that Thanos would be the villain for the second Avengers movie. During the end credits scene in The Avengers we saw the Mad Titan and thought »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

I’m just going to put this out there: romantic comedies are now really hard to write. I mean, as a creative endeavour, it’s a full-on cliché minefield. To correctly balance all the elements required – chemistry, tension, humour, romance – while avoiding the most well-worn cinematic devices, is monumentally difficult. A fool’s errand, some might say. And yet, still they appear, because still writers try to bring something new and fresh to the genre. Still we buy those tickets, and sit in the dark – hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but knowing we will probably be disappointed.
So, here we are again, with a new trailer for another daring attempt. The film is titled Playing It Cool in this preview, but was previously known as A Many Splintered Thing. Does it achieve the impossible dream? Is this film that most elusive of treasures – that mythic creature that continually slips our collective grasp? »

Captain America fans won’t have to wait long to see Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson reunite on the big screen. But, rather than in a superhero film, Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie will actually appear together next in the romantic comedy, Playing It Cool.
Previously titled A Many Splintered Thing, Cool looks to tackle the age-old question of whether a man and woman can just be friends. Chris Evans’ unnamed narrator, who doesn’t believe in love, falls for a woman played by Michelle Monaghan.
Though the two have an initial connection, Evans tries to just play the friend »

The first trailer for new romantic comedy Playing It Cool has arrived online, and you can view it below at your leisure.
A long-delayed film (it was filmed way back in 2012, and has had its name changed from A Many Splintered Thing), the film is directed by feature-debutant Justin Reardon and stars Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as a screenwriter who wants to write an action movie, but is being asked to write a rom-com instead. However, he doesn’t believe in love, and so struggles to find a story for it.
On paper, the film has a pretty impressive ensemble. Alongside Evans are his Winter Soldier co-star Anthony Mackie, as well Michelle Monaghan (True Detective), Aubrey Plaza (Life After Beth), Topher Grace (Interstellar), Luke Wilson (The Skeleton Twins), Philip Baker Hall (Magnolia), Giovanni Ribisi (Ted), Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) and Martin Starr (Adventureland).
It certainly isn’t anything original or different, »

Jessica Alba - the sexy Us actress says she regrets not going to college. The 'Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For' actress admits she was ''always kind of insecure'' when she was younger and never felt smart because she didn't finish her education. The 33-year-old star, who has daughters, Haven, three, and Honor, six, with husband Cash Warren, said: ''I was always also insecure about not going to college and I always felt I wasn't smart enough. ''My teens and my 20s I just wasn't sure of myself and I was always kind of insecure and I always felt I needed to apologise for myself.'' The brunette beauty credits her family and getting older for helping her to become more confident. The 'Fantastic Four' actress, whose eco-friendly brand The Honest Company was recently valued at almost $1 billion, told 'The Meredith Vieira Show': ''After I became, »
Jessica Alba's won awards for being smokin' hot, but that doesn't mean she's always felt that way! The Fantastic Four actress opened up to Meredith Vieira on The Meredith Vieira Show on Wednesday, Sept. 10, and admitted that growing up, she actually felt "always kind of insecure." "My teens and my 20s I just wasn’t sure of myself and I was always kind of insecure and I always felt I needed to apologize for myself," the brunette told the talk show host. "After I became, first of [...] »
Many will find it up for dispute, but I believe a review of legendary rock musician Ace Frehley’s newest album Space Invader fits in perfectly here. The former Kiss guitarist made a name for himself onstage as he stalked around in his interstellar costume while his instrument smoked and he fired off rockets into the sky as strobe lights flashed and flames jumped around him. His Spaceman persona grew to even more epic proportions in a sci-fi fantasy movie, video games, and through the pages of Marvel Comics and other publications. The larger-than-life cosmic super hero delivered humanity from the clutches of evil just like the Avengers, Justice League, or Fantastic Four.
You can take the makeup off his face, but you can’t remove the spirit of the Spaceman from Ace Frehley’s heart. The former Kiss lead guitarist is back and better than ever with the impeccably titled Space Invader. »

The videogame Shadow Of The Colossus looks like it's coming to the big screen after all...
Now this could be good. There had been talk before about bringing the excellent videogame Shadow Of The Colossus to the big screen (with Chronicle, Fantastic Four reboot and now Star Wars director Josh Trank attached at one stage). And now it looks as though Sony Pictures has resurrected the project, given that it's appointed a director to it.
Said director is Andres Muschietti, who broke through with the horror film Mama. For some time, he was attached to direct Universal's reboot of The Mummy, before parting company with that particular project. Alex Kurtzman is the new Mummy helmer.
Over the years, Marvel superhero movies have set a standard of expectations for audiences. There is, of course, their blend of action and humor that’s come to encapsulate the brand, but there are also smaller additions which fans are often irate if not included. These necessary extras can be the now common mid- and post-credit scenes, but their most popular is definitely Stan Lee’s requisite cameo. The comic book legend has made an appearance in over 20 Marvel films, and not all necessarily from Marvel Studios as he’s had cameos in several X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Spider-Man films.
Lee’s cameos are always a humorous highlight and it was no different in this summer’s ...

Stan Lee, the well known creator of many of the world’s greatest comic characters and the king of cameos, may have let it slip that Marvel Studios are definitely working on a film based on Black Panther. Comic Book Resources quoted Lee at the Fan Expo Canada saying, “We haven’t made a Black Widow movie but she’s been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward,” Lee said. “And the chances are she will have her own movie because eventually all the superheroes are going to have their own movies. They are already working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and the Black Panther and there are others I am not allowed to talk about”.
This is exciting news for multiple reasons. First there has been a little bit of outcry for more diversity in superhero films. Captain America: The Winter Solider introduced Falcon, »

…We’ll kick things off this week with Marvel Studios’ most recent release Guardians of the Galaxy, which climbed back to the top of the U.S. box office chart last weekend on its way to becoming the biggest domestic release of year (overtaking Captain America: The Winter Soldier to do so) and passing the $500 million mark at the box office, making it the seventh film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to do so.

Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy is officially a hit, and has been hailed as one of the company's best films by many a critic. Before its release, the film was considered Marvel's biggest risk, based on an obscure team of cosmic heroes little known among comic fans, let alone the general public.
In celebration of Guardians' success, here are some other lesser known superhero teams we would love to see on the big screen...
1. Doom Patrol
Introduced just three months before Marvel's own misfits, the X-Men, DC's team of superhero oddities are a different breed from that team of merry mutants. While X-Men frequently explored the themes of minorities and social acceptance, Doom Patrol has made a habit of embracing its strangeness.
With core members including Robotman - the brain of a critically injured racecar driver implanted in an artificial body - and Negative Man - possessed by »

Comic book movies are some of the hottest properties in Hollywood right now. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, Fox’s X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) continuity, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the new DC Cinematic Universe all include films that have grossed hundreds of millions – and even billions in some cases – of dollars in recent years.
As a result, comic book movies have become a genre with a good reputation. Huge, top class and award winning actors, including the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Andrew Garfield, Chris Cooper, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Jamie Bell, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, have signed on for roles in them – something that would have been unheard of as recently as twenty or so years ago.
However, the genre could have looked so different and could have taken such a »
