Our Favourite Marvel Characters – How do the Films Compare to the Comics?

11 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Millions of comic book readers around the world can often feel disappointed and short changed when they see their favourite superhero character portrayed on the silver screen. This is normally because there are notable differences between the comic and film which they find difficult to overlook. Due to the recent string of Marvel films, Gala Casino have compiled a comparison list of popular Marvel characters, which looks at the similarities and contrasts between the cinematic and printed selves. Using Gala’s list as inspiration we’ve created our own list comparing the Hollywood movies to the nostalgic comics:

Iron Man

There is no denying that Robert Downey Jr. has done an excellent job bringing Tony Stark to life in the Hollywood films. That being said, there are still differences between the two characters that should be noted. Completely different from the comic books is Pepper Potts and Stark’s relationship; in the films, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy': The Characters' Comic Book Origins Explained

21 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In many ways, the origins of Guardians of the Galaxy are unlike those of earlier Marvel Studios properties. For one thing, neither Stan Lee nor Jack Kirby is responsible in any way but the most tangential (Together, Lee and Kirby created Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor and the Avengers, as well as the X-Men and next year’s Ant-Man; separately, Kirby co-created Captain America with Joe Simon and Lee co-created Spider-Man with Steve Ditko). For another, unlike earlier Marvel Studios movies, this one is based on a property that, for all intents and purposes, is less

Could Tony Stark Be Killed Off In Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on whether Tony Stark could be killed off in Avengers: Age of Ultron

This may be a controversial issue for many as the character of Tony Stark is without a doubt the fan favourite of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There has been talk of the character of Tony Stark being retired or killed off, a different character wearing the Iron Man suit, and even the idea of recasting the role after Robert Downey Jr. decides he doesn’t want to do it anymore. There is a lot of potential for where the character could go, and also a huge opportunity to kill the character off.

Robert Downey Jr. has signed up for another Avengers after Avengers: Age of Ultron and has also hinted at a possible Iron Man 4, so the idea of killing him off may seem bizarre. However, Iron Man 4 was only hinted at and there is no confirmation whatsoever. »

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Iron Man Armor Obsolescence vs. The Vision

23 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In The Avengers, six heroes came together to defend New York from the Asgardian Loki and his army of alien invaders. Only half of the heroes were “super” in the traditional sense and of the remaining three, Iron Man was the exception thanks to the advanced armored and weaponized suits at his disposal.

Iron Man’s abilities stem from the technology and weapon systems developed by Tony Stark and his Stark Industries and on the field of battle, he can fly, take damage and launch a multitude of offensive abilities. What happens when another Avenger enters the fray, with the same abilities of flight, strength, durability and ranged weaponry, but is inherently stronger and faster?

As it turns out, we’ll find out in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, when several new characters potentially join the roster. There are the super-powered “twins” Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch ...

Paul Bettany on going from Jarvis to the Vision in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

29 July 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - As if one role in a Marvel movie wasn't enough, Paul Bettany has now greedily taken on another: artificially-intelligent Ultron spawn the Vision in Joss Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron." So how did he get so lucky? "Since 'Iron Man,' the first 'Iron Man,' I've been involved [in the franchise]," said Bettany of his voice role as Tony Stark's personal computer assistant J.A.R.V.I.S. in all three "Iron Man" films and the first "Avengers." "I thought it wasn't gonna happen because once you play one character in a Marvel franchise you can't play another. But we all got along so well, somehow Joss Whedon and Kevin Feige figured it out. And I'm really flattered that they did." In the sequel the Vision has what Bettany terms a "complex" relationship with the Avengers - not unexpected considering that he's a creation of »

Women Prevailing Despite Sexism in Slowly-Changing Below-the-Line Industry

29 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Rita Lundin was working as a driver on “Men in Black 3,” the message from her Teamsters coordinator was blunt: We don’t like to work with women.

“He told me he wouldn’t be able to sleep, thinking I wasn’t going to make it to the set and that I wouldn’t be able to do the job,” she says.

It didn’t matter that Lundin, 55, was a third-generation member of the movie industry, and grew up on the sets of films and TV shows, even appearing as an extra on “Gunsmoke” when she was a girl. Nor were her prior credits as a driver — an impressive list that includes “Iron Man” and “The Hangover” — enough proof that she could handle a job that required her to move massive trailers, set up generators and keep the stars’ cushy offscreen homes clean and in shape.

Sdcc '14: One Of Ultron's Drones From Avengers: Age Of Ultron?

28 July 2014 11:46 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For months, we've known Ultron, the main baddie in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, would control an enormous drone army. Heck, just this past weekend Marvel Studios released new posters with Ultron's minions battling The Hulk, Quicksilver, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Captain America and Iron Man. Below, is apparently armor from one of those drones and it was supposedly spotted a block away from where the San Diego Comic-Con convention took place.

Here's Why Marvel Didn't Confirm Any New Movie Titles

28 July 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was a borderline tragedy to Marvel fans this weekend, as the company only announced one film on their upcoming film slate (Guardians Of The Galaxy 2) despite eight release dates hovering on the horizon. Fans know to expect Doctor Strange given the recent hiring of director Scott Derrickson, and there's certainly room for a third Avengers, with writers hired for Thor 3. That leaves four release dates without titles. Why weren't they confirmed? The issue is a simple one: Marvel doesn't know what these movies are either. In some ways, Marvel has revolutionized blockbuster filmmaking. All it takes is a small last-minute addition to a movie and suddenly the Marvel world spiderwebs even further. Samuel L. Jackson's end-of-credits cameo as Nick Fury in Iron Man was an afterthought. By 2011, the Red Skull would control the Tesseract, just the first in a series of magical MacGuffins teasing the arrival of Thanos, »

Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo Tease Reason for Hulk Vs. Hulkbuster Battle

28 July 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Since ABC aired their Marvel documentary earlier this year, we’ve known that Tony Stark, with the help of his Hulkbuster armor, would be taking on the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The concept art above does little justice to how the actual showdown is shaping up so far — we got a glimpse of it in the Comic-Con footage. The extended Comic-Con preview confirmed that the Hulkbuster armor, like in the comics, encases Stark’s regular Iron Man armor. The studio put the Hulkbuster arm on display at their convention floor booth.

The big question is though, why are Iron Man and Hulk fighting at all? The last couple of times we saw the two heroes, their bromance was in full bloom. Tony Stark and Bruce Banner literally rode off into the sunset together at the end of The Avengers, and at the end of Iron Man 3, Banner »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

28 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

Interview – Wamg Talks To Guardians Of The Galaxy Composer Tyler Bates

28 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hollywood Records and Marvel are releasing three albums from Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy on Tuesday, July 29.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Deluxe soundtrack features classic 1970s songs from the film, plus score by composer Tyler Bates (“Watchmen,” “Slither,” “Dawn of the Dead”). Music plays a major role in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy as the great songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.

Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, “One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape [Awesome Mix #1] that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that’s the only thing he has left of his mother and that’s the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. »

Our Favourite Marvel Characters - How Do the Films Compare?

28 July 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Comic book culture has always been popular, however in recent years it has seen something of a more general resurgence, with a flurry of comic book adaptions being made into films.

With the huge success of the Avengers series, with the film Avengers Assemble hosting a star cast, audiences cannot seem to get enough of superheroes. Of course, the translation from comic book to big screen is not always smooth. Sometimes the characters do not live up to their printed version, leaving some diehard fans feeling underwhelmed or even betrayed. With a number of featured Marvel games on site, Gala Casino have put together a comparison list inspecting original characters and their movie interpretations. 

Captain America

The story of how Steve Rodgers became Captain America is pretty much the same in both the comic and film, and you could even say that Chris Evans, who plays the captain, looks just like his comic book counterpart. »

San Diego Comic Con 2014: Top 5 Image Announcements

28 July 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

On the “Zero Day” of this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Image held a mini-Expo and announced a dozen new titles from creators, both popular or relatively unknown , including some new to writing or drawing for Image. These comics show that Image is the place where creators can roam free and write and draw crazy and interesting stories in a variety of genres. This freedom paid off big time as Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ sci-fi love story Saga continued to dominate the Eisner Awards. Part of Image’s commercial success is due to Robert Kirkman, especially The Walking Dead and the popular AMC television series it spawned. San Diego Comic Con showed that his comics have cross-media potential even before the first trade of a comic he is writing comes out.
