Spider-Man Star Breaks His Nose on Avengers 4 Set
It's unclear how much longer Avengers 4 has to go, with production taking place in Atlanta as we speak. But it looks as though Tom Holland is ready to wrap his role as Peter Parker in the movie. And he has done so in spectacular fashion. He has broken his nose. He says this on a video he posted on social media.

"Who said acting was easy, huh? Broken nose number 3. What a way to finish a movie."

Yes, you heard right. This is the third time Tom Holland has broken his nose on the set of a movie. The young actor, who made his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War before headline this past summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, is quite the acrobat, and is known for doing crazy backflips and other body-wrecking forms of gymnastics. It's unclear what kind of insurance policy Marvel has out on this kid, but it's

Orson Welles’ Final Film ‘Other Side of the Wind’ Nears Completion, Hires Post-Production Team (Exclusive)
Orson Welles’ unfinished final film, “The Other Side of the Wind,” is nearing completion following the hiring of Academy Award winners Bob Murawski as editor and Scott Millan as sound mixer.

The producers have also tapped negative cutter Mo Henry, who has worked on more than 300 films, along with Ruth Hasty as post-production supervisor.

Rotten Tomatoes Reveals The 50 Best Superhero Films Of All-Time

Superheroes: fictional characters doing impossible things in implausible costumes. Why is society so fascinated by them, though?

Well, for one, they inspire us, reassure us, and certainly entertain us. They also provide a platform for storytelling that’s epic in scale – often allowing for sweeping sci-fi or historical drama, alongside intimate tales of relationships and familial bonds. As such, it’s hardly surprising that the world of film adopts – and occasionally spawns – so many of these characters as its own.

The potential for these crusaders to draw in audiences has been explored and expanded further than anyone could have imagined back when Superman And The Mole-Men became the first superhero movie to hit cinemas in 1951. Since then, filmmakers have continually mined the realms of comic books, graphic novels, animation, TV, and even conceived their own original creations, all in search of that most elusive of achievements: A good superhero flick.

Why This Could Be the Year That Best-Director Oscar Nominations Finally Tip Toward Women

Why This Could Be the Year That Best-Director Oscar Nominations Finally Tip Toward Women
Kevin Spacey’s Oscar chances, obliterated. Dustin Hoffman’s, gone. While we don’t yet have the hashtag, March 4, 2018 will be remembered as the year that the issue of sexual harassment took center stage at the Dolby Theatre.

If one of the historical perks of Hollywood stardom was the ability to misbehave without consequences, those days are over. Sony pulled Ridley Scott’s AFI Fest closer “All the Money in the World,” which was primed for an awards campaign around Spacey, now accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and abuse.

While Hoffman presented a Hollywood Film Award Sunday night, it’s unlikely that his crusty New York patriarch will be in the running for “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” after multiple harassment claims — in addition to Meryl Streep’s own account of how he introduced himself by grabbing her breast.

Is Thor: Ragnarok the best Marvel movie ever?

Anghus Houvouras on whether Thor: Ragnarok is the best Marvel movie ever…

Yes.

There you go! Nice, succinct, spoiler-free and to the point. I suppose there are those who want more detail, so allow me to elaborate. Spoilers ahead my friends.

Thor: Ragnarok Is The Best Marvel Movie. Better than Iron Man. Better than The Avengers. Better than Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Better than Guardians of the Galaxy. After four or five years of being completely ambivalent about Marvel Studios and their ridiculously similar, formulaic content I found myself blasted out of the back of the theater at the awesomeness of the third Thor movie.

How the hell did this happen? Let’s break it down.

It’s the most Comic Book movie since Raimi’s Spider-Man 2.

One of my biggest gripes about Marvel over the past few years is their attempts at bringing their larger than life

New ‘Spider-Man’ PlayStation 4 Trailer Digs into the Game’s Story

  • Collider.com
As a huge fan of the Spider-Man 2 video game, I’ve got high hopes for the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man for PlayStation 4. It’s a console exclusive built from the ground up, so rather than the developers racing to meet the release of a tie-in property or just churn out another title because they have the license, it seems like everyone involved is really trying to make the best Spider-Man game ever, and judging by what we saw earlier this year, it looks like they’re on the right track. Today, Sony revealed a …

Listen To A Track From Danny Elfman’s Justice League Score

Even though Junkie Xl is a fantastic composer in his own right, I’m reasonably certain that not many fans were up in arms when Danny Elfman was announced as being his replacement as composer on Justice League a few months back. After all, Elfman was responsible for the music heard in Batman and Batman Returns, both of which remain two of the best superhero soundtracks to this day, at least in my opinion. But, if you need a little more assurance, know that his resume also includes heavy hitters in the genre such as Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Hulk and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Still, there may be some of you out there that need more convincing, so it’s quite fortunate that a sample of the film’s score has now found its way online. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’re able to listen to the third track,

Which Avengers Can Take Over For Iron Man In The McU Once He’s Gone?

It’s hard to believe, but we’re approaching ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Where has the time gone? With Avengers: Infinity War set to round the first decade off in May 2018, it’s easy to forget where things started. The next superhero team-up will arrive ten years after Iron Man raised the curtain and those humble origins almost feel like ancient history now. No one could truly have foreseen the phenomenal success that would follow, and Marvel Studios clearly aren’t done yet. The future slate looks as exciting as ever, as new characters are constantly being added from the immense Marvel roster and the possibilities for where things can go from here are virtually endless.

On the face of it, the continued success is attributable to numerous factors. Most important of these, however, is the huge cast that’s now been amassed – what’s not to like about that?

John Williams’ Classic Superman Theme Coming To ‘Justice League’

  • The Playlist
As part of the massive makeover for “Justice League,” composer Junkie Xl aka Tom Holkenborg, who scored “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and was replaced by Danny Elfman., who has plenty of superhero experience under his belt having tuned up “Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” “Hulk,” “Spider-Man,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Batman,” and “Batman Returns.” The change makes sense given that Joss Whedon is putting a pretty heavy fingerprint on the picture.

Sequelitis!: The Necessary Disease Ravaging Hollywood

Remember 2011? Not a particularly memorable year, but some highlights stand out. That was the year Obama released his long form birth certificate, it was the year of a major tsunami hitting Japan, it was the year we got Osama bin Laden…it was also the year of 27 sequels.

27 Sequels!?!

Yeah, that sounds like a bad title to 26 Sequels, my favorite Cambodian/Peruvian film (sarcasm), but how crazy is that? Now, I want to point out that this year…it’s 30. That’s right, 30 sequels. This isn’t counting reboots mind you, or universe expanding films, this is the straight sequel. “We are carrying out the story from one onto the next, enjoy it.” That kind of sequel.

Before you grab your pitchforks and torches, and certainly before you start screaming: “Hollywood Has No Original Ideals! Booo, Protest! Hiss! Rabble Rabble,” you need to hear me out on this.

12 Actors Who Were Almost Batman
Batman has dominated movie screens since at least 1989. An there have been some major players vying for the role ever since. Ben Affleck put it best: "Batman is the Greatest Part in the World." In the summer of 2017, the actor and Oscar winning screenwriter and director shrugged off rumors he was set to exit the Dceu, as work continued on Zack Snyder's Justice League. But what if someone else was coming in to take over the role. Who would it be?

Battfleck turned out to be the best received part of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which reintroduced the Caped Crusader to movie going audiences, following the critical and box-office success of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. There have been numerous big screen versions of Gotham City's vigilante since he made his debut in Detective Comics and even more false starts and abandoned projects. Today, we're looking

10 Actors Who Were Almost in Doctor Strange
It was a beautiful validation for comic book fans everywhere when the Marvel Cinematic Universe grew so unstoppable that some of the trippiest and hardest-to-adapt characters were finally able to star in their own franchises, with A-list actors to boot. None have been weirder than Doctor Strange. And now, It's hard to imagine anyone other than Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of the Sorcerer Supreme, who Steve Ditko and Stan Lee introduced in the pages of Strange Tales back in the summer of 1963. But things could have turned out a lot different.

As things got cooking for Marvel's Phase 3, there were a slew of big name actors in contention for the magical role of Doctor Stephen Strange. And a few A listers came very close to signing that contract. As Marvel puts it, Benedict Cumberbatch was always the first choice. But we're not so sure about that, as one particular

Thor Puts Together ‘The Revengers’ In New ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer

  • The Playlist
The Marvel Cinematic Universe have maintained a pretty consistent level of quality on the whole. Even the worst of their films — “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Age Of Ultron,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Ant-Man” — have elements to recommend them, and never sink as low as an “X-Men: Apocalypse” or “Suicide Squad.” But on the flipside, even the best of their films haven’t really reached genuine greatness in the way that, say, “Spider-Man 2” or “The Dark Knight” managed.
