Disney Sues Stan Lee Media, Finds Bank Accounts Empty

5 February 2016 2:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 1998, comic book legend Stan Lee formed a startup company entitled Stan Lee Media, to manage a growing list of new characters that were being created. Shortly thereafter, Stan Lee himself cut ties with the company, before it went bankrupt in 2000. While that would normally be the end for a company like this, the defunct Stan Lee Media went ahead and sued Disney several times, starting in 2007, claiming they owned the rights to superhero characters created by Stan Lee, such as Spider-Man. Disney won every time, but now, according to Pirated Thoughts, the studio is now suing Slm, over nearly a half million dollars in unpaid legal fees.

Stan Lee Media never claimed that they owned the rights to several characters until the bankrupt company started filing lawsuits against Disney in 2007, at least six of them. The lawsuits claimed that Stan Lee transferred the rights to beloved characters like Spider-Man, »

1 February 2016 1:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Captain America: Civil War shaping up to be one of 2016's biggest movies, several merchandisers are preparing to unveil their products from this superhero adventure, ahead of the New York Toy Fair 2016 later this month. In January, we showed you Hasbro's new toys from this epic adventure. Today, Idle Hands has released even more photos of different action figures, masks and weapons that will be available soon. Unfortunately, we don't have any pricing details for any of these items, but you can take a look at our entire merchandise gallery below.

Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity.

‘The Venture Bros 6×01: Hostile Makeover’ Review

1 February 2016 3:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“It’s a Sicilian thing.”

It feels like the Earth was young the last time The Venture Bros was on the air, but here we are again at the start of a brand new season. Season 5 ended in flames, death, and an accordion-driven rendition of The Crash Test Dummies’ ‘Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm’ along with the sudden elevation of the surviving Ventures from has-beens to billionaires. ‘Hostile Makeover’ doesn’t spend enough time in any one place to really come to grips with what the show is trying to do with the shift from the desolation of the compound to the hustle and bustle of New York. Establishing the new normal takes up most of the episode’s run time as we bounce between the Ventures in their new digs, Dr. Girlfriend and the short-staffed Council of Thirteen, and the Monarch and Gary fucking around ineffectually.

The bulk of the episode is gags, »

'Captain America: Civil War' Art Shows the Marvel Heroes in Battle

28 January 2016 12:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, Marvel unveiled the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Captain America: Civil War, but we haven't seen too much from this Phase Three adventure since then. There have been rumors that the next trailer will debut during the Super Bowl next weekend, but that hasn't been confirmed quite yet. While we wait for the latest footage to arrive, Iron Studios released a new piece of concept art for this superhero adventure, along with their announcement that new 1/10 Art Scale and 1/4 Legacy Replica statues from this movie will be coming soon.

The artwork features heroes such as Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and more. Hopefully we'll get a better look at all of these heroes in action when the second trailer arrives, but until then, this artwork will have to suffice. »

Controversial 'lost' Leonardo DiCaprio film Don's Plum removed from web

28 January 2016 4:39 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Improvised 90s drama disappears after brief online debut following complaint from DiCaprio and co-star Tobey Maguire

Don’s Plum, the low-budget 90s indie drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire that appeared online last month, has disappeared once more into the Hollywood ether after its stars took action to have it removed from the web.

Their move – a copyright complaint to Vimeo – parallels events in 1999 that also removed the film, at least partially, from view. Concerned that the black and white improvisational feature, tagged “not for public consumption”, might damage their reputations, DiCaprio and Maguire – who was then soon to star in the movie version of Spider-Man – were involved in legal action against the makers. They claimed they regarded Don’s Plum as the equivalent of an acting workshop and had never intended to make a full-length feature for theatrical release.

10 Things You Need To Know About The McU’s Spider-Man

27 January 2016 12:21 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Spidey is finally coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’ll look an awful lot like young British actor Tom Holland, and he’ll make his first appearance in this year’s Captain America: Civil War movie before spinning out into his own solo adventure expected in cinemas in July 2017.

Jon Watts of kids-in-trouble drama Cop Car and grizzly family horror Clown will direct the solo film, building on the groundwork laid by Joe and Anthony Russo in the huge Civil War crossover film. And Sony will be hoping that these two movies can set right Spidey’s cinematic stock after the disappointing-according-the-studio takings of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (That’s one of the few circumstances when $700 million worldwide can be made to sound like a bad thing.)

We don’t yet know which villains the new web-slinger face, or who is love interest will be. But, thanks to a little digging, »

20 Marvel Characters Who Must Be Introduced In Phase 3

25 January 2016 6:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Joe and Anthony Russo recently joked that they have as many as 67 characters they’re looking to squeeze into the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. While that may be something of an exaggeration, it’s easy to believe that Kevin Feige has given them a very long list of all the new heroes and villains who need to be included in some way as the story which kicked off back in 2012 reaches its conclusion. So expect Phase 3 to not only bring back old favourites, but a lot of new characters as well.

Whether we’re talking about future Avengers who will be introduced in that epic two-parter or villains set to factor into the many other Phase 3 releases which are coming out before then, it’s inevitable that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to expand in a major way over the next few years (especially as the studio launches »

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man episode 1 review

25 January 2016 5:25 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writer: Neil Biswas

Director: Andy De Emmony

Cast: James Nesbitt, Eve Best, Sienna Guillory, Amara Karan, Joseph Gatt, Steven Mackintosh, Burn GormanMark Ebulué and Darren Boyd.

Synopsis: The life of troubled London cop, D.I. Harry Clayton, takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious woman gives him a bracelet that seems to allow him to control luck. Will he use it to bring a killer to justice or win at the casino?

Verdict:

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is a curious and interesting concept when first faced with its premise and setting. Not only has the mastermind behind Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men channeled his creative genius into a new television series, but it also happens to be a British crime drama starring hilarious Irish actor James Nesbitt. However, this beautiful mixture of components actually forms something quite unique and entertaining.

The episode starts off by introducing the audience to Harry Clayton, »

The Good and Bad of a Marvel and Star Wars Crossover Movie

24 January 2016 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the possibility of a combined Star Wars/McU movie…

This week Stan Lee talked about the possibility of a Marvel/Star Wars crossover movie. It’s a tantalising prospect that throws up so many potential plot lines and will excite as many people as it infuriates.

As both Marvel and Lucasfilm are now owned by Disney, it’s a possibility, albeit it a remote one, though you can guarantee that some studio accountant has done a presentation that combined box office figures for Star Wars and McU films (around $7 billion dollars and counting) in an attempt to get the movie green lit. There are of course several hurdles to overcome before it becomes a reality.

First of all, the films in the McU are, more or less, set now, on Earth, whereas quite famously, Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, »

24 January 2016 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After last week’s bumper edition, The Week in Star Wars is looking ahead to Episode VIII and why its been pushed back. We’ve also got some rumours surrounding Rogue One, a crossover with Marvel, Kylo Ren on Undercover Boss and more…

We’re running a competition to win this set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Pop! Bobble-Heads containing 11 figures released for the new movie. Competition closes on February 7th – so you’ve got time to enter!

We’re going to kick things off this week with Star Wars: Episode VIII, as it was revealed this week that Disney and Lucasfilm were pushing the movie back from May 26th, 2017 to December 15th, 2017. This means we’re now getting one Star Wars movie every Christmas, rather than spread out through the calendar year as originally planned. The May date was first put in place as it marked the 40th anniversary of the iconic franchise, »
