Outrage Watch: Marvel has a Tilda Swinton problem

4 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. The good news: Tilda Swinton is reportedly in talks to play a gender-bent Ancient One in Marvel's "Doctor Strange." The bad news: Tilda Swinton is reportedly in talks to play a whitewashed Ancient One in Marvel's "Doctor Strange." How are we supposed to feel about this? Pretty angry, according to a contingent of tweeters who are miffed that a character depicted in the comics as an elderly Tibetan man (birth name: Yao) has been reimagined for the upcoming McU entry as a willowy white goddess. Here's a sampling of the outrage: 'Tis strange to assume that changing the character's gender will be controversial but the whitewashing gets a pass. http://t.co/qNZ6cm1d3F — Jason Morehead »

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 »

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.

Kevin Feige has promised that the Marvel Universe will never go dark

13 May 2015 4:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Feige has promised that there are no plans for a "dark turn" in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios' president has waved away the suggestion that the McU will at some point head down a grittier and more serious path, saying that an element of comedy is essential to the movies' success.

A report on the Marvel subreddit paraphrased Feige's comments from a preview screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron:

"There is no dark turn in the McU. He says every year fans come up to him and ask him if this movie is when the McU goes 'dark' or takes a 'dark' turn.

"He said while the trailers may seem ominous or have a sense of impending doom, the movies do not have that feel, and will not. He said he 'hoped people would catch on by now' - there will be no »

Marvel TV: synopses for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter's next seasons

13 May 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Learn more about Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 and Agent Carter season 2 here, via their new synopses (synopsises? synopsi?)...

If we've learnt one thing this morning, it's that the plural of synopsis is synopses. We did, however, also get a few clues about the next seasons of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter thanks to their new synopses. We still think synopsi sounds better, though. 

Naturally, if you're not up-to-date with either show, these cast-mentioning synopses will spoil the surprise of which characters survive their respective finales. Consider yourselves warned, then.

Here's the synopsis for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3, to start with...

"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for a dynamic, action-packed third season, as Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) embarks on a deadly new secret mission to protect the world from new threats in the wake of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s wars with Hydra and a rogue faction of Inhumans."

Feige: Marvel Films Will Never Go 'Too Dark'

12 May 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the common complaints from Marvel fans about the first trailer for "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" was that of the film's tone looking far too dark and gritty for their taste, something that seemed odd considering many of these same people heaped praised upon Netflix's "Daredevil" series around the same time for being just that - very adult, dark and gritty.

One fair point is that Superman isn't a dark character and trying to shove him in that mold is not suitable, yet the debates often didn't get that specific and seemed to once again devolve into yet another round of tribalistic fanboy feuding.

Also, even though they're part of the same Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Netflix shows are a separate thing from the films. Marvel chief Kevin Feige recently gave a talk on this subject and says, at least on the big screen, there's no plans »

Kevin Feige Says The Marvel Cinematic Universe Will Never Take A "Dark Turn"

12 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Following the release of the first trailer for "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," there was much chatter about how dark is too dark for comic book movies. And even Marvel has gone gritty with "Daredevil," a show that's very much for adults and raises the bar on the studio's depiction of grim violence. However, don't look to Marvel's playbook for a darker approach when it comes to their Cinematic Universe. During a recent chat on Reddit, Kevin Feige made it clear he wasn't fixing what isn't broken. Here's a summary of what said: There is no dark turn in the MCU. He says every year fans come up to him and ask him if this movie is when the MCU goes "dark" or takes a "dark" turn. He said while the trailers may seem ominous or have a sense of impending doom, the movies do not have that feel, »

John Ostrander: We Eat Our Own

10 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

A recent Internet brouhaha occurred when some feminists attacked Joss Whedon after the opening of Avengers: Age of Ultron claiming he was a misogynist, etc, for his portrayal of Black Widow in the movie. I haven’t seen the movie yet – I may be one of a handful in the world who hasn’t – so I can’t comment on it although given Whedon’s track record, I am skeptical.

When Whedon closed his Twitter account, the Internet went crazy and charged he was chased off by “militant feminists.” Again, I was skeptical. Whedon himself later stated “I just thought, Wait a minute, if I’m going to start writing again, I have to go to the quiet place, and this is the least quiet place I’ve ever been in my life.” That’s true of the Internet in general, by the way. A great tool but also a great temptation for wasting time. »

Thn Speaks to The Man Without Fear… Daredevil’s Charlie Cox!

9 May 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Marvel Studios seemingly taking over the entire Film industry in a post-avengers Hollywood, many believed that the bar had been set far too high for Netflix’s new Daredevil series. Thankfully, Drew Goddard and Steven S. DeKnight have crafted a brilliantly entertaining crime-thriller that finally gives audiences the Matt Murdock we have been waiting for. Not only has the series managed to successfully reintroduce the character after Ben Affleck’s 2003 film adaptation, but it has also opened up an even darker corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Of course, the success of the show is largely due to the impressive performance of leading man Charlie Cox. We were lucky enough to sit in on an insightful, revealing round-table interview with the man himself – Check out what Marvel’s newest hero had to say below!

Has TV Made the Marvel Cinematic Universe Into A Nerd's Dream Come True or an Addiction?

8 May 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Being a dedicated fan of the Marvel Universe, these days, is a lot of work. This was my thought as I left the theater last week, after having watched the earliest "Avengers: Age of Ultron" screening I could as a civilian movie-goer — that I'd just put a whole lot of time and effort into keeping up with one of the world's most popular franchises. That time and effort doesn't just refer to the fact that right before "Age of Ultron," I'd watched the first "Avengers" film, as well, thanks to an AMC double-feature deal. It refers to the other nine films that have come before, plus 41 episodes of "Agents of Shield," eight episodes of "Agent Carter," 13 episodes of "Daredevil" and a few short films.

Scott Glenn on 'Daredevil': 'I live, for an old man, a pretty adolescent life'

7 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Scott Glenn has spent 35-plus years playing the toughest of tough men. Since his breakthrough performance as John Travolta's rival in "Urban Cowboy," he's played astronauts ("The Right Stuff"), cowboys ("Silverado"), vengeful bodyguards (the original "Man on Fire"), submarine commanders ("The Hunt For Red October") and FBI agents ("The Silence of the Lambs"), among other jobs, always looking lean, weathered, and alert of everything around him. With rare exceptions — a "Monk" two-parter years ago, a handful of TV movies — he's played all these roles on the big screen. His career started in television (his first two screen credits were minor guest spots on "The Patty Duke Show"), but unlike many of his contemporaries, Glenn never tried to take a regular TV job as he got older. Then last year, he agreed — with some reluctance — to play Kevin Garvey Sr., the possibly-crazy, possibly-psychic father of Justin Theroux's cop hero of HBO's "The Leftovers, »

10 Behind-The-Scenes Stories That Will Change How You View Marvel Studios

6 May 2015 3:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The Marvel Cinematic Universe all began with an after-credits sequence in 2008, and that brief appearance from Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in Iron Man helped to set the stage for hit after hit for Marvel Studios. Despite not having access to characters like Spider-Man and the X-Men, Marvel has taken those they do hold the rights to and made them even more popular and financially successful than the A-List heroes who once overshadowed them.

With Kevin Feige at the helm, Marvel has found unparalleled success in just about every respect. Feige meanwhile is perhaps the only producer in Hollywood who even casual moviegoers know by name, and he’s worshipped by comic book fans for the world he’s helped to shape over the course of eleven movies.

The story behind Marvel Studios is one which is long and utterly fascinating. Established in 2005, it was far from »

Marvel CEO Highlights History of Female Superhero Flops in Leaked Sony Email

5 May 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter had some qualms about the box office performance of  “female movies” in an email exchange with Sony boss Michael Lynton. In the leaked Wikileaks correspondence from Aug. 7, 2014, Perlmutter lists “Elektra,” “Catwoman” and the 1984 film version of “Supergirl” as examples of female-led superhero movies that didn’t do well financially, linking to each of the films’ box office results on BoxOfficeMojo.com. “Very bad idea and the end result was very, very bad,” he said of “Elektra,” the Marvel movie starring Jennifer Garner, which was a spinoff of the Ben Affleck-led “Daredevil” feature film.

Jonathan Levine, Jared Hess And More In Running To Direct Standalone 'Spider-Man,' Drew Goddard Seemingly Out

5 May 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A couple of months ago, it was rumored that  Drew Goddard had been tasked to write and direct "Spider-Man: The New Avenger." It was a nice rebound for the director who left "Daredevil" to helm "Sinister Six," only to see Sony's Spider-Man franchise implode. But with a new deal struck with Marvel earlier this year, it looked like Goddard was still in the ranks. Perhaps not. Deadline reports that a new brace of directors are up for the gig: Jonathan Levine ("50/50," "Warm Bodies"), Ted Melfi ("St. Vincent"), Jason Moore ("Pitch Perfect"), John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein ("Vacation"), and Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite," "Nacho Libre"). While these names might seem like oddball choices for 'Spider-Man,' remember that Kevin Feige has described this new incarnation "a non-stop wit" and these choices all know comedy very, very well.

Spider-man Director: Marvel and Sony Considering Warm Bodies, Pitch Perfect Helmers

5 May 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

So, who’s going to follow Sam Raimi and Marc Webb as the director of the next Spider-Man film? With production underway on Captain America: Civil War and Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures deep in the hunt for the actor who will portray Spider-Man (first popping up in Civil War before leading his own film), the contest to direct the new Spider-Man movie is also heating up. A previous report from March claimed that Drew Goddard, the filmmaker behind The Cabin in the Woods and Sony’s aborted Sinister Six, was in talks to write and direct the new Spidey pic. Goddard was a solid and sensible choice, having had experience with Sony on Sinister Six and with Marvel creating Daredevil. But a new report leaves Goddard’s name out of the picture entirely and instead reveals a familiar-feeling list of directors who are being considered to helm the new Spider-Man film instead. »
