The Russos considered killing an Avenger in Captain America: Civil War

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Captain America: Civil War there was a lot of speculation as to whether Marvel would follow the Civil War comic book story arc with the death of Captain America, while one rumour even suggested that death scenes had been filmed for Falcon, War Machine and Scarlet Witch.

However, as we now know, the Avengers all came out of the movie alive and pretty much unscathed (well, not so much Rhodey), and during a Q&A in Hollywood this past Friday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and producer Kevin Feige were asked about the lack of deaths in the movie. Their response is as follows (courtesy of HitFix):

Anthony Russo: We never talked about killing Cap in this one, right? no.

Joe Russo: We did for a beat. We talk about everything.

Anthony Russo: I think the thing to remember is, »

Newswire: R.I.P. Do The Right Thing and Spider-Man’s Bill Nunn

22 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Variety is reporting that Bill Nunn—who played Radio Raheem in Spike Lee’s pivotal 1989 drama Do The Right Thing, and editor Robbie Robertson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies—has died. A celebrated actor of television, stage, and screen, with more than 70 credits to his name, Nunn was 62.

Nunn got his start as an actor in 1988, when he played country boy Grady in Lee’s second feature, School Daze. The two would ultimately work together on four films, with Lee casting the large-framed Nunn in Mo’ Better Blues, He Got Game, and, most prominently, Do The Right Thing.

As the boombox-toting Radio Raheem, Nunn served as one of the engines of that film’s slowly building wave of tension, blasting Public Enemy and giving an impassioned speech about the war between Love and Hate. When conflict erupts over the “Wall Of Fame” in a local ...

Why Didn't Any Avengers Die in Captain America: Civil War?

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This shouldn't come as too much of a spoiler, but towards the end of Marvel Comics' Civil War storyline, Captain America bites the big one. And for months leading up to the release of Captain America: Civil War in theaters this past May, many fans believed Chris Evans' freedom fighter would face a similar fate. That never came to pass, though. And War Machine was the only Avenger who really even came close to dying, though everyone lived. Today, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss why that panned out in such fashion.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was speedster Quicksilver who didn't quite make it to end credits. And it showed that Marvel was willing to sacrifice a few of its characters for the greater good of storytelling. So many fans walked into Civil War expecting to see at least one major character's arc come to an end. »

Kevin Feige and the Russo brothers reveal why no Avenger got killed off in ‘Captain America: Civil War’

24 September 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Somehow, the Avengers all made it through Captain America: Civil War alive. There were no casualties among the superheroes in the latest Marvel movie. The major character deaths were Peggy Carter, the villain Crossbones, and the Wakandan King, T'Chaka. But somehow, all of the Avengers and their new superpowered buddies survived all the standoffs, bombings, and villains’ devious plans. The worst injury by far was Rhodey’s partial paralysis. Perhaps the impact of a major Marvel character dying has been weakened by the easy return of supposedly dead characters like Nick Fury, but the McU masterminds have a specific reason for keeping all the Avengers from perishing in Civil War. At a Q&A that followed a screening of the movie in Hollywood on Friday (it was a “for your consideration” event — Marvel’s gearing up for award campaign season), an audience member asked about this low death toll.

New Passengers, Allied and Fist Fight trailers make our weekly roundup

New Passengers, Allied and Fist Fight trailers make our weekly roundupNew Passengers, Allied and Fist Fight trailers make our weekly roundupScott Goodyer9/23/2016 9:57:00 Am 1. Passengers

Passengers is easily one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, seeing as it stars arguably the most popular male and female in Hollywood right now, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.

The film, directed by The Imitation Game's Morten Tyldum, is about two passengers in a spacecraft who are accidentally awakened from their sleep chamber 90 years too early. Obviously some romance surfaces, and we couldn't imagine a cuter movie couple.

Finally the first trailer has arrived, and the film looks as epic as it sounds. Watch the trailer below and catch Passengers when it hits Cineplex theatres on December 21st, 2016.

2. Allied

Brad Pitt falls for Marion Cotillard in Robert Zemeckis' Allied, but she may not be who she seems.

American Horror Story: examining the real lost colony of Roanoke

David Crow Sep 23, 2016

The backdrop to American Horror Story season 6, our Us chums look at the lost colony of Roanoke, its myths and pop culture appearances...

In case you missed it, the American Horror Story season 6 theme has been revealed, and it is a bloody Roanoke Nightmare indeed. After promoting the new season without releasing a single frame of footage, the ever-cryptic Ryan Murphy has now unveiled his true crime satire-meets-American Gothic to a surprised public, leading many to wonder… what is Roanoke again?

Despite a misconception in some quarters that the name infamously tied to the words “Lost Colony” was made up for the series, and that this fictional ghost story was set in Virginia (Roanoke is in present day North Carolina), Roanoke is indeed a real place, and the ghost stories around it are every bit as strange—if not stranger—than anything American Horror Story has dreamed up. »

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

20 September 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A little over a week since I had the chance to ask Stan Lee a question and wouldn’t you know it, I’m still jacked that I had a chance to speak with him. The man is a legend. One of the first cartoons I watched growing up was Spider-man And His Amazing Friends which Stan narrated for season 2. From there, it was The Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, arguably the greatest superhero show in television history. Stan’s creations have been a constant in my life since my earliest memories. The chance to speak with him is a memory I’ll never forget.

With that, I wanted to spend this week reading some of my favorite Stan Lee stories. What made his work stand out where others from his era aren’t as well known? For one, I’d say his instincts on what make characters tick was dead on. »

Zack Snyder turns on the Batsignal, reveals Jk Simmons' Commissioner Gordon

17 September 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

J.K. Simmons, previously announced as the new Commissioner Gordon for DC's cinematic universe, gets his big Justice League costume reveal (along with the Batsignal) on the very appropriate Batman Day. Thanks, Zack Snyder! Twitter seems to be the go-to spot for Warner Bros. to debut new superhero stuff. Ben Affleck teased Deathstroke's movie universe debut, we got a look at the new Batmobile, and most recently Batman's Justice League tactical suit. And today, Batman Day, Snyder has chosen to give us our first look at Batman's Bff, Commissioner Gordon, with bonus Batsignal. #JusticeLeague #BatmanDay pic.twitter.com/m1MbiF6HZD — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) September 17, 2016 And what a lovely composed shot it is. I've zoomed in a bit for you to see Simmons clearer. They should probably invest in a more secure door for the roof of police headquarters, no? That door is looking straight out of the '60s Batman series. »

J.K. Simmons Top 5 RolesJ.K. Simmons Top 5 RolesAdriana Floridia9/15/2016 12:40:00 Pm

Who doesn't love J.K. Simmons?

The character actor who most would recognize from having supporting roles in almost every movie, finally got the praise he deserved when he won as Oscar for his career defining role as a mean music teacher in Damien Chazelle's Whiplash.

This fall, Simmons co-stars alongside Ben Affleck in The Accountant. While he has risen to stardom, it was those small roles where he truly won our hearts, and we're looking back on our five favourites.

The Meddler

Playing the love interest to Rose Byrne's overbearing, recently widowed mother (Susan Sarandon), J.K. Simmons made us fall in love with him as well. Rarely portraying the romantic lead in a film, here this Harley Davidson riding adventurer had us at hello. He can be as charming as he can be mean, and that's »
