We’re currently in a boom period for superhero films, with plenty more on the way. It’s the golden age for comic book fans. Characters like Wonder Woman, Dr. Strange and the Justice League are all coming to theaters, joining established franchises like Thor and Captain America. But some of you may not know that these characters all had live-action movies made about them before. Cinelinx looks at 7 obscure super films you probably haven’t seen.
#1. Doctor Strange: In 1978, a two-hour made-for-tv movie aired about the master of the mystic arts. Dr. Strange was meant to be a pilot for a proposed weekly CBS TV series. Peter Hooten played Doctor Strange and Jessica Walters played villainess Morgana Le Fey. CBS was already airing Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk and was trying to go for the hat trick, bringing the Doc to TV. However, it was not to be. »

With the UK getting its first glimpse of the Asylum's latest disaster-piece tonight (July 23), we bring you the 8 best and very worst moments from Sharknado 3 below:
There's a certain art to a Sharknado opening scene. Viewers want their man-eating sharks and lots of blood from the get-go, and each new movie has to find a new way to satisfy them.
This time around, a hokey presidential ceremony - complete with a genuinely depressing cameo from all-time great comedian Robert Klein for the second year running - for the one-man army known as Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) was quickly dispatched so the sharks could starting destroying the Us capital.
Chris Cooper ranks the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) is now at twelve films. It’s huge, with connecting story lines and teases stretching out for years to come. Ant-Man marks the end of Marvel’s ‘Phase 2Two’, with ‘Phase Three’ kicking off with Captain America: Civil War next year.
You know how the internet loves a list, and even more so one that can anger those with their pants on a bit too tight. So here we are, the Marvel films ranked from 12 to 1.
I’ve not spoken to one person who agrees completely, and I don’t expect any of you either! My wife is still giving me crap about were I’ve put Iron Man 3 two years later. So it’s a good exercise in kicking the hornets nest and seeing who disagrees most vehemently.
Obviously I’ve had more time some to »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are often associated with masculinity, aggression, and machismo but even by Heavy metal standards, the artist known as Thor (a.k.a. Jon Miki Thor) is an absolute beast!
The Norse god impersonator, semi-professional bodybuilder, performance artist, b-movie actor, and all-around nice guy is the subject of I Am Thor, an 84 minute documentary by director Ryan Wise which shines some insight into Thor’s wild life and documents his long-running come back. With a music career spanning five decades, Thor is one of the legends of rock-n-roll that not enough people know exists —and hopefully this film will change that. 15 years in the making and I Am Thor is finally here, and totally worth the wait.
I’ve seen some remarkable screenings over my 19 years of attending the Fantasia Film Festival. I’ll never forget the enthusiastic, »
Entertainment One has released a UK trailer for A Walk in the Woods, the upcoming adaptation of Bill Bryson’s bestselling memoir starring screen legend Robert Redford as the travel writer. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
Upon his arrival back in the United States following two decades in the UK, Bryson wants to find a way to reconnect with his homeland. Impulsively he decides to hike a section of the longest continuous footpath in the world, The Appalachian Trail, 1000 arduous miles stretching from Maine to Georgia, an expedition men half his age struggle to complete.
Fearing for his life, his wife Cathy (Emma Thompson) refuses to allow him to do a solo trek but is unsuccessful in persuading any of his friends to accompany him. When his old buddy Katz (Nick Nolte), a crude, overweight, recovering alcoholic, calls him out of the blue and offers to accompany »

After some footage of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool shooting thugs, cracking jokes, and doing a little dance to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” leaked at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, fan anticipation has increased for Deadpool, which got an official release date and a supporting cast in the past year.
For those not in the know, Deadpool is a mercenary character created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld in an New Mutants issue as a villainous parody of DC Comics’ Deathstroke. (Wade Wilson, Slade Wilson, see what they did there.) Over the past two decades, Deadpool has become a fan favorite character thanks to work by writers like Joe Kelly, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, and most recently Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, who gave him a daughter and an even sadder backstory in the 2013 “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” arc. He has picked up a wide variety »

San Diego (AP) - There's a Hulk-sized hole at Comic-Con this year. Three of the major studios and Disney/Marvel are not hosting a panel in the main hall at the annual fan festival. That means no Iron Man, no Captain America, and no Spider-Man - at least their filmed versions.
Going back to 2010, Marvel has been a main event at Comic-Con, with their Disney properties usually serving as the marquis presentations. With a slate that extends through 2019, a film currently in production ("Captain America: Civil War") and another coming out next week ("Ant-Man"), it seems like an odd choice.
Their absence in the San Diego Convention Center's huge Hall H is not only dispiriting to fans, it's also a subtle sign that the 45-year-old pop-culture extravaganza has become less relevant to the shifting marketing strategies of the major studios.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe can be an awfully big, noisy and repetitive place to spend your time and money, but at its best, it can also allow for humor, whimsy and lightness of spirit — all qualities that come into play in “Ant-Man,” a winningly modest addition to the ever-expanding Disney/Marvel family. Though we can mourn the more stylish and inventive stand-alone caper we might have gotten from director Edgar Wright (who left the project over creative differences and was replaced by Peyton Reed), this enjoyably off-the-cuff franchise starter takes a cue from its incredible shrinking protagonist (played by a game Paul Rudd) and emerges with a smaller-scaled, bigger-hearted origin story than most comicbook heroes are typically granted. Insofar as it feels like a bit of a tonic next to this summer’s more bloated offerings, this July 17 Stateside release won’t reach the box office heights of the recent »

Well! Someone woke up on the wrong side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe today. Screen Junkies just issued a new Honest Trailer for Robert Downey Jr.'s original "Iron Man," the "Marvel masterpiece that started it all" and, without which, would leave "Hollywood in the terrifying position of having to develop something original." (True enough.)
As they mock:
From the company that went bankrupt in the '90s and sold off the rights to its most popular characters comes a film based on the equivalent of leftover scrap metal, proving that Marvel can build a franchise around just about anybody ... except The Hulk."
Poor Hulk! He's already been trashed in his own separate trailer.
Screen Junkies continued:
Experience the massive success that Marvel turned into a formula for printing money, where you take a half-forgotten, B-list superhero, cast an unknown or half-forgotten B-list actor, have him fight a generic villain »

The most exciting thing about a new Marvel movie being released isn’t the movie itself; it’s the press tour that the actors – and more specifically Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige – embark on a few weeks before it reaches the big screen. Ant-Man, the studio’s latest venture is no different, with the Us press tour resulting in some fascinating (and spoilery) Marvel movie details being revealed.
It’s almost as if Feige uses these press junkets as a chance to also promote Marvel’s upcoming releases.
That’s good news for fans, especially as new details about the future of the Ant-Man franchise, Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man have all been revealed. From major plot details to simple hints and teases about what’s to come, Feige has been generating headlines all week, creating buzz for Ant-Man and Phase 3. Here, you will »

Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige must be exhausted this week. Having been on the press tour for the upcoming Ant-Man, he’s been talking about Edgar Wright’s departure from the project [see here], the studio’s “big plans” for The Wasp [see here], gender-swapping The Ancient One in Doctor Strange [see here], introducing an Lgbt character into the McU [see here], Black Panther’s role in Captain America: Civil War [see here], the chances of The Hulk appearing in the Phase Three threequel [see here], integrating Spider-Man into the Cinematic Universe [see here], and the “John Hughes vibe” of the reboot [see here].
Well, just incase that’s not enough Marvel for you for one week, Feige has now shared a few more thoughts on the new Spider-Man – set to be played by Tom Holland – and how a younger version of the character will stand out from what we’ve already seen from Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield:

Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.
"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

With Terminator Genisys out in UK cinemas tomorrow (July 2), there's no better time to look back at some of the lesser known facts about the franchise that turned Arnie into a superstar.
1. James Cameron found himself in director jail in the early '80s having been fired from Piranha II. Unsure if he'd ever be able to sit behind the camera again, he sold off his Terminator script for $1 in exchange for the rights to direct it.
2. Mel Gibson and Oj Simpson were initially considered for the role of The Terminator before Arnold Schwarzenegger landed the part. Arnie had in fact originally met with director Cameron to discuss playing Kyle Reese before being cast as the T-800.
3. The Terminator's iconic line "I'll be back" was originally scripted as "I'll come back" (something that rolled »
"It is a role that he is still in the beginning phases of taking on," Feige told Birth Movies Death. "It's a mantle he is only beginning to take on because his father is older."
Boseman will debut in the film which - if it follows the thrust of the Civil War comic - will see Tony Stark and Steve Rogers going to war over their conflicting views of superheroes' roles in America.
"The reason we introduced him in Captain America: Civil War is »
Since the announcement of the massive cast of Captain America: Civil War (that includes the likes of Iron Man, Black Panther, Spider-Man and the rest of the New Avengers), many fans were starting to worry that this would not be a “Captain America movie”. Well fear not, because Kevin Feige is putting those worries to rest.
“Certainly at the end of Civil War it’s a whole new ball game,” Feige told io9. “What’s fun about Civil War though is, as you know from the comics, it’s a very simple story. And it really has to be, to accommodate that many players. It’s very much a Captain America movie and it’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier in ways I don’t think people [will expect]…. It’s a very simple structure that allows you to have these amazing character interactions in a way that I don’t think becomes overwhelming. »

Chatting to the mighty io9 (a terrific site, if you've never had the pleasure), Feige first of all played down the involvement of the Hulk in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, telling the site that he is "not a primary part of Civil War", and in fact that "he may not be a part at all".
He also responded to the suggestion that Captain America 3 has actually turned into more of an Avengers film, as more and more Marvel heroes are added to its ensemble (Black Panther and Tom Holland's Spider-Man will be debuting in the film, for instance).
"Certainly at the end of »
In yet another lengthy Ant-Man press junket interview, this time with Io9, Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige touches more on next year's Captain America: Civil War, as well as 2017's Thor: Ragnarok, and the recently-titled Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. When asked about the rumors that the Incredible Hulk (or Red Hulk) will be appearing in Civil War, Kevin Feige teased that the Jade Giant is "not a primary part of Civil War" and that "he may not be a part at all." Furthermore, Kevin Feige explained how the 2016 superhero ensemble flick will include so many characters while still being considered a Captain America movie. "Certainly at the end of Civil War it’s a whole new ball game," Feige began. "What’s fun about Civil War though is, as you know from the comics, it’s a very simple story. And it really has to be, »
