Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron

1 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The day is finally here, and fans assemble for the follow-up to Marvel's 2012 Joss Whedon-directed hit movie The Avengers. This week's new release, Avengers: Age of Ultron, was also written and directed by Whedon, creator of hit TV franchises Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly.

Marvel continues to tie events in its film franchise to its TV series Agents of Shield, which provides a plausible reason for the group of superheroes to reunite in search of Loki's sceptre. The sceptre has fallen into dangerous hands in the wake of Shield's collapse, as witnessed in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Agents of Shield. The recapture of that artifact leads to the creation of Ultron, a new and deadly cybernetic enemy bent on the team's destruction.

James Spader voices Ultron, and it's hard not to like the villain perhaps more than the heroes with his matter-of-fact quips and insults, »

The Real Coke

"Zombieland" and "Deadpool" scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are reportedly penning a feature about the disastrous launch of New Coke thirty years ago. The drink attempted to adjust classic Coke's secret formula for a younger generation - it performed so badly it threatened the original soft drink's market leadership.

The scribes have optioned the Thomas Oliver book "The Real Coke, The Real Story" and will pen this 1980s period piece which will also deal with how No. 2 rival Pepsi launched the 'Pepsi Challenge' that led to corporate panic at Coke. [Source: Deadline]

The Dukes Of Oxy

Angel Elgort is being lined up to star in a film version about the Rolling Stone article "Dukes Of Oxy" at New Line. The article deals with a pair of teen high school wrestlers from Florida who built a multimillion-dollar business smuggling OxyContin and other painkillers.

Elgort would play Dodd, the more »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron – 10 Heartbreaking Joss Whedon Deaths That Will Be Hard To Beat

22 April 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

After months of anticipation, audiences are finally getting to see Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye together on screen again. The Avengers: Age Of Ultron is setting the stakes even higher with a very global scale and a villain as iconic as Ultron putting humanity at risk of extinction. It will also mark Joss Whedon’s second and final time directing the Avengers for the big screen.

Delivering one of the highest grossing films in history with The Avengers, Joss Whedon proved to the world what fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly already knew. He is a master storyteller, able to juggle rich characters, balancing drama, humour, action and horror in equal measure.

He also demonstrated that he isn’t afraid to kill off a good character, something that didn’t surprise fans of his shows. Across Buffy The Vampire Slayer, »

Steven S DeKnight on 'Daredevil' secrets and where are the gays in Hell's Kitchen?

13 April 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Steven S. DeKnight has worked on some celebrated TV programs over his career. He's written for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and held different producer titles for "Angel," "Dollhouse" and both "Spartacus" incarnations.  Now, he's earning critical acclaim for his contributions to "Marvel's Daredevil" which debuted on Netflix last week.  Thanks to show creator Drew Goddard and DeKnight, this version of the classic hero is a far cry from the tepidly received 2003 movie that starred Ben Affleck as the Man Without Fear.  Netflix's "Daredevil" is the darkest, bloodiest and most grounded Marvel Studios creation yet. And yet, as with most great "Daredevil" stories it features an inevitable showdown between Matt Murdock in his alter ego as Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Wilson Fisk a.k.a. The Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio) as they both fight to transform a pretty upscale neighborhood of Manhattan (O.K., it's still pretty un-gentrified because of all that destruction in "The Avengers, »

How the Showrunner of 'Marvel's Daredevil' Made a Superhero Show Feel Human, and Laid the Groundwork for Season 2

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Heads To The Small Screen

10 April 2015 1:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Closing in on its 40-year anniversary, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is about to undergo a transformation. In order to commemorate an extraordinary existence – it holds the title of longest theatrical run of any movie – a two-hour live event is heading to the small screen.

This newest iteration hails from Fox, who is revamping the cult classic musical for what’s being described as “a reimagining of the campy horror feature.” On board to usher this live extravaganza to the screen are High School Musical‘s Kenny Ortega, who will direct and choreograph the reboot, with Buffy/Angel alum Gail Berman and original producer Lou Adler both tapped to executive produce.

Per Deadline, the reboot “is expected to stick faithfully to the text and the score of the original but greatly reimagine the story visually.” That overview certainly offers Ortega a wide berth to re-appropriate the source material and hopefully »

Week in Review: ‘Jurassic World’ gets a clip and some criticism from Joss Whedon

2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News

Maybe the second most anticipated movie of the summer is Jurassic World, in part because Hollywood’s newest, biggest star, Chris Pratt, gets the chance to headline yet another blockbuster. But if you watched the trailer some weeks ago, you might’ve noticed how grim, self-serious and decidedly not Andy Dwyer/Starlord-esque charming and funny Pratt’s character was.

The first sigh of relief came this week when the first clip for the film was released this week, which you can watch above. Pratt is playfully flirting with Bryce Dallas-Howard in the scene, hinting at why the two of them never had a second date. Charming and funny? Maybe. Badly written? Arguably. Cliche? Probably. But is it sexist?

Joss Whedon, director of the first most anticipated blockbuster of the summer, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, seems to think so, as he tweeted »

Rocky Horror Picture Show Remake Headed to Fox

10 April 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We have entered the age of "Event TV". Fox is prepping to remake the cult classic film The Rocky Horror Picture Show in a two-hour musical event special. Kenny Ortega (Highschool Musical, Hocus Pocus) is set to direct the reboot alongside Gail Berman (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) as executive producer. Lou Adler, who executive produced the original film, is also on board. Tentatively titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show Event, the special has a cast-contingent order at Fox. My gut reaction to this is - wow, that's going to be a disaster - but I'll reserve judgment until a cast is announced. The fact that they've got Adler on board is promising, and Ortega certainly knows how to direct musical performances. Plus, this is the guy who gave us Newsies and Hocus Pocus, two of my generation's great cult classic. If they nail the casting, it could turn out »

Rumour: Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off in the works?

10 April 2015 12:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Are Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. producer Jeffrey Bell and writer Paul Zbyszewski working on a spin-off to Marvel’s tent-pole TV project?

Here’s one to file under ‘rumour’ until we see an official statement from someone involved. However, as it originates from a reputable source like Entertainment Weekly, there’s certainly a chance there’s a truth to it.

The rumour we’re talking about? That would be the existence of an Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, a story that EW posted last night. They’re claiming that S.H.I.E.L.D.’s exec producer Jeffrey Bell (Angel, The X-Files) and writer Paul Zbyszewski (Lost, Hawaii Five-0) are working on a top secret project that will spin-out from Marvel’s tent-pole TV project.

Perhaps this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, seeing as Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has always done a more or less decent trade in ratings. »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Spinoff Series In The Works

9 April 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tomorrow marks the release of Marvel’s small screen Daredevil reboot, which will hit Netflix in its entirety. The first of five touted shows crafted by the two content pioneers, its imminent arrival may have sparked interest elsewhere in TV land. According to the latest word from Entertainment Weekly, ABC is planning an Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series in the near future.

The as-yet untitled series hails from S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell (Angel, The X-Files) and series writer Paul Zbyszewski (Lost). Both are said to be writing the show with an eye to executive produce. It’s believed that the only way the show will be guaranteed a pilot – and the all-important greenlight – if if network brass are happy with that provisional script. Should that transpire, the series is expected to air concurrently to the flagship show, which will enable showrunners the chance for crossover episodes, »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Spinoff in the Works at ABC

9 April 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. should be pleased to hear that the show may not be going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, the franchise looks to be expanding. EW reports that Marvel is currently developing an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff series for ABC as well. Executive producer Jeffrey Bell (Angel) and S.H.I.E.L.D. writer Paul Zbyszewski (Lost) are behind the proposed spinoff, but plot details are being kept firmly under lock and key in Odin’s vault. Apparently there won’t even be a backdoor pilot for the spinoff this season (ie. an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode that sets up the new series), but elements from upcoming episodes will pave the way for the spinoff. In fact, by the end of the season, EW says the spinoff’s concept should be clear.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Marvel and ABC are planning to launch another series featuring characters first introduced in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Which characters? No idea, as all plot details etc are still under wraps, but we do know that S.H.I.E.L.D exec producer Jeffrey Bell (Angel, The X-Files) and series writer Paul Zbyszewski (Lost) are involved. Plus, apparently some story elements that are still to come on S.H.I.E.L.D. this year will be used to "lay the groundwork for the potential new series". Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D has never been what you'd call a ratings monster for Marvel, but the show has definitely improved in terms of overall quality so this should be seen as welcome news by most fans.
