Comic book movies, and the exposition dump

8 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book films are full of intricate storytelling. But sometimes, even Batman, Spider-Man & Iron Man need Basil Exposition's help...

This article contains spoilers for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and various other comic book movies - if you're not entirely up to date, then watch out as you read on...

As you know, we're enjoying a golden age of comic book movies and there are around 30 more of them pencilled in before the decade is out. Since Marvel Studios started experimenting with continuity between movies and whole franchises, there's been criticism of its use of MacGuffins and plot exposition - it provokes nightmares of long-winded recaps of already established stuff, starting with dreaded phrases like 'as you know'. And who'd start anything with those three words?

It's not that we're mistaking the use of exposition for poor storytelling - it's a super-broad term to describe something that's kind of essential to most stories. »

Tyler James Williams Would ‘Absolutely Love’ to Play Spider-Man (Video)

25 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tyler James Williams as Miles Morales? He certainly wouldn’t mind it.

The actor, best known for playing the title role in “Everybody Hates Chris” and a recent turn on “The Walking Dead,” revealed in a recent interview with Flicks and the City that he would “absolutely” portray the Morales iteration of Spider-Man, and that he’s even read for Marvel before.

“I kind of follow the Miles Morales character quite a bit,” Williams said. “And I’m open to the idea, I am. I’m not starting campaigns or anything for it because I trust Marvel. I’ve read for them before. So I trust what their decisions will be.”

“But yeah, I’d love to do it,” he went on. “I would absolutely love to do it.”

The 22-year-old actor was an Internet favorite to play the web-slinger, with fans creating a campaign to further the cause amplified »

Watch Spider-Man Knock Himself Unconscious At A Kid's Party

25 May 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

According to legend . or, you know, the catchy theme song for the 1960s animated series . Spider-Man does whatever a spider can. Spins a web? Any size. Pull off a mid-air flip and land on his face? If this video can be considered canon, then yes. Ok, so this isn.t the real Spider-Man. It.s not even Asa Butterfield, who may one day become Spider-Man. Instead, this is a costumed "hero" hired to entertain at a child.s birthday party in Argentina. And based on the giggles and hoots that accompany the bone-crushing, soul-sucking sound of this poor dude.s face hitting the floor, his mission was accomplished. You sick, sick kids. The embarrassing video has gone viral, of course. We found it on Live Leak. Skip to the 1:00 mark if you want to see gravity accomplish what a string of super-powered villains (and a terrible Sam Raimi sequel »

Everything we know so far about the Fantastic Four reboot: Spoilers, trailer and latest rumours

25 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

20th Century Fox's new Fantastic Four is sneaking up on us with surprising stealth. Other than the odd controversy, news on the film from Chronicle director Josh Trank has been relatively light.

So what do we know about the movie, other than it surely has to improve on its Jessica Alba and Chris Evans-starring predecessors? Read on to find out:

Fantastic Four will arrive in UK cinemas on August 6 and in the Us on August 7.

We've got a whole new take on Marvel's First Family

In case it wasn't clear from the fresh faces of the cast (and the uniformly bad memories of the 2005 and 2007 films), this movie will reboot the franchise based on Marvel Comics' very first comic book series.

We have a whole new lineup, with Whiplash's Miles Teller as stretchy super scientist Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, House of Cards' Kate Mara and Chronicle »

In Defence Of... Ben Affleck's Daredevil

23 May 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The critical and commercial success of Marvel's Netflix show has given the character of Daredevil a new lease of life, with a confirmed second series, a co-lead spot in the upcoming super-team show The Defenders and a possibility that the character could one day make an appearance in the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. With that in mind, it's time to re-appraise the character's first big-screen outing – writer-director Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil, starring Ben Affleck. Is it really as bad as its reputation suggests?

Released in 2003 (the same year as Ang Lee's Hulk and Bryan Singer's X2, though it was first out of the gate), Daredevil took more than $102 million at the Us box office and just $76 million outside the Us, for a worldwide total of $179 million. Despite more than doubling its budget it was perceived as a flop, especially alongside the likes of Spider-Man and X-Men, whose successes »

Matthew McConaughey Eyed For Spider-Man Villain Role?

20 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This particular rumor should be taken with a massive grain of salt, but that doesn’t change how exciting it is. Just days after Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey noted that he’s circled roles in comic book films before and would be open to starring in Marvel and DC adaptations, we’re hearing that he may currently be in Sony’s crosshairs for the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.

The news comes from a YouTube channel called That Hashtag Show. Now, while they aren’t exactly the most credible source and don’t have a history for big scoops like this, they did correctly report several big Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers back in April, so there could be some truth here.

The role in question is that of Peter Parker’s longtime nemesis, Norman Osborn, who of course goes from being your traditional run-of-the-mill corrupt business magnate to glider-flying supervillain, »

In Defence Of... Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama Hulk

16 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At the time of writing, Marvel have not yet confirmed a third standalone Hulk movie, but without giving anything away, the closing events of Avengers: Age of Ultron definitely leave that door wide open. With that in mind, it seems like the perfect time to re-appraise ol' greenskin's first big screen outing, Ang Lee's multi-million dollar psychodrama, Hulk.

Released in 2003, Hulk took a total of $132.2 million at the Us box office, just short of its reputed £137 million budget. Though it eventually took over $245 million worldwide, it was perceived as a flop, significantly under-performing compared to the likes of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man or Bryan Singer's X-Men movies. Hulk not box-office Smash, in other words. Critics weren't overly kind either – it earned 62% on review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, indicating decidedly mixed reviews albeit with a positive slant.

Based on the Marvel comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby »

Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) and Arseface (Ian Colletti) are silhouetted in a new photo from the set of AMC's Preacher pilot, which is currently being directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Rogen recently Tweeted the image, which shows Jesse having what looks to be an intense conversation with fan favorite Arseface, aka Eugene Root, a young man who, in the comic books, was spurred on to attempt suicide after Kurt Cobain's death, only to survive a gunshot to the face.

Joining Rogen and Goldberg behind the camera is Bill Pope, who's worked as the director of photography on The Matrix films, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies, Edgar Wright's The World's End, and much more. Rogen and Goldberg are directing from a screenplay they wrote with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).

Could Asa Butterfield be our new Spider-Man?

15 May 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Asa Butterfield is currently being rumoured as the frontrunner to step into Spider-Man's tights.

There are various reports circling that the Ender's Game actor is the first of "approximately five actors" in line to play the iconic Marvel superhero.

Deadline and Latino Review are both reporting (with varying degrees of certainty) that Butterfield could have already signed with Sony and Marvel Studios.

With all the rumours flying around about Andrew Garfield's replacement, we're taking this with a pinch of salt until we hear anything official.

The two studios recently entered into a deal which will see Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter ego appear in Marvel's films, while Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will be involved in the production of Sony's next Spider-Man film.

The friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man is widely assumed to be part of the bumper cast of 2016's Captain America: Civil War.

Meanwhile, Butterfield will definitely »

Spider-man: Asa Butterfield Reportedly in Talks to Be the New Peter Parker [Updated]

14 May 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Spider-Man casting extravaganza continues, and today’s rumor now narrows the choices down to exactly one. Last we heard, Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures were reportedly closing in on Ender’s Game star Asa Butterfield and In the Heart of the Sea actor Tom Holland to play the new Peter Parker, after those two names first landed on a longer shortlist in April. Now, following an earlier report that Butterfield was the frontrunner, El Mayimbe is reporting that the studios have made their decision, and the 18-year-old Butterfield is now “officially” in negotiations to play Peter Parker in the McU and in a series of standalone films for Sony. [Update: Multiple trade reporters have taken to Twitter to say that they're hearing a deal isn't on the table just yet, and other actors (namely Holland) remain in the mix as Marvel and Sony continue to test.] Butterfield first came to prominence as the young star of Martin Scorsese’s 2011 film Hugo, going on to fill the role of Ender Wiggin in 2013’s Ender’s Game. He’s a solid actor and is certainly a star on »

Butterfield In Final Talks For Spider-Man?

14 May 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It looks like Spider-Man has been found.

El Mayimbe reports that long-time rumored frontrunner Asa Butterfield ("Hugo," "Ender's Game") has been selected to be the Marvel Studios approved new Spider-Man, with the actor now in negotiations for the role (but not yet signed).

If accurate, Butterfield has beaten out the likes of Tom Holland and Nat Wolff for the part. He is expected to make his debut in "Captain America: Civil War" which recently began filming. He will then get his own film for July 28th 2017, and will then likely crossover into other Marvel Studios films - the best bet being the "Avengers: Infinity War" two-film saga.

Butterfield, who just turned 18, is also by far the youngest actor to take on the role. Both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were in their mid-20's when they first played Peter Parker. »
