'Black Widow' Covers "Esquire"

16 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ everybody's favorite 'Black Widow' actress, Scarlett Johansson, crowned "The Sexiest Woman Alive" in "Esquire" magazine.

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career. "I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business."

"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.

'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'. 

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming »

Simon Kinberg promises a “realistic, gritty and grounded” tone for The Fantastic Four

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg was at WonderCon in Anaheim yesterday to talk about the upcoming mutant superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, but with Fox’s reboot The Fantastic Four due to kick off production this month, he also offered up a few words about the studio and director Josh Trank’s (Chronicle) plans for Marvel’s First Family.

“As Bryan Singer created with the original X-Men movies, Christopher Nolan created with the Dark Knight movies, Jon Favreau and Marvel created with the Iron Man movies, all the best superhero franchises – Sam Raimi did it with with Spider-Man – they create a tone and that is the thing that defines them,” says Kinberg (via HitFix). “It’s not the stories that differentiate them from each other. Sometimes the characterizations aren’t that distinct. It’s that the tone is different and in some ways [that's because of the] lessons learned from the original ‘Fantastic Four’ movies, »

New 'Fantastic Four' will be a more 'gritty' and 'realistic' movie than the original

19 April 2014 11:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Anaheim - First thing's first. The new "Fantastic Four" movie is definitely happening. No delays, no recasting. Josh Trank's vision is going to come to fruition. That's the word from the movie's screenwriter and producer Simon Kinberg who was on the Baton Rouge, La set two days ago and reveals that production begins in earnest in two weeks. Kinberg was at this year's WonderCon to speak primarily about 20th Century Fox's expected blockbuster "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but he also took a few minutes to talk about Marvel Comics' most famous family. He says the chance to create a "unique tone" is what excites him most about the reboot. "As Singer created with the original 'X-Men' movies, Christopher Nolan created with the 'Dark Knight' movies, Jon Favreau and Marvel created with the 'Iron Man' movies, all the best superhero franchises - Sam Raimi did it »

Spider-Man Producer Says Avengers Crossover is a Last Resort

19 April 2014 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

It has long been a pipe dream for fans to see Spider-Man swing by the likes of Captain America and Iron Man in a future "Avengers" film, but the likelihood of such a thing happening is small while various studios hold the screen rights to Marvel's characters. Even though a brief Easter egg almost happened in Marvel's The Avengers , longtime Spider-Man producer Avi Arad says that a full-fledged crossover between the two franchises will only happen when they've run out of ideas. "I think I'm probably a little bit of the militant here,"  A rad said in an interview with IGN . "I think it will take a moment in which we've run out of ideas. There's so much to tell »

Disney and Marvel Studios are celebrating another huge success for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the latest Phase Two offering Captain America: The Winter Soldier crossing the $500 million mark at the global box office. The Chris Evans-headlined solo sequel is currently sitting on $502,272,687, which puts it ahead of previous McU releases The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.6 million) and Thor ($449.3 million), with Iron Man’s $585.2 million haul fast approaching.

The release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier has already helped to make the Marvel Cinematic Universe the highest-grossing franchise of all-time domestically, and with $6.173 billion in the bank globally so far the superhero series will also overtake the James Bond franchise ($6.198 billion) to climb to second world-wide behind the box office behemoth Harry Potter ($7.709 billion).

Secret Deal Behind 'Spider-Man' / 'X-Men' Post-Credits Revealed

16 April 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we reported that fans who stay to the end of Sony's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 credits will be treated to a scene from 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past. While the scene does not tie the two franchises together, many have wondered why the rival studios would team up for this kind of cross-promotion, with speculation that they may be teaming up for some sort of superhero crossover in the future. Variety has a new report which reveals that a Spider-Man and X-Men hybrid movie is not in the works, and that there is a simple, contractual reason why this extra scene was added to prints of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

When The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb was in negotiations to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the talks hit a brief snag, since the filmmaker is still under contract to make one more movie with Fox Searchlight, »

Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper on the unique nature of 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

16 April 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Are you confused by Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy"? A (very) brief new featurette wants to reassure casual fans that -- although there's more comedy and space-set action this time around -- "Galaxy" is still part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And famous people like Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are in it (at least their voices are).  Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige tells us that while "Galaxy" is part of that universe, it "takes it to the next level," mixing more overtly sci-fi elements with superhero lore. Star Zoe Saldana adds, "it's not a typical superhero movie," meaning no one will mistake it for "The Avengers," although the two franchises are connected via the intergalactic villain Thanos ?as well as that mid-credits scene in "Thor: The Dark World." Instead of do-gooders like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor, the Guardians are a group of reluctant heroes made up of thieves, »

The Secret Deal Behind ‘Spider-Man 2’ Plugging the ‘X-Men’ (Exclusive)

16 April 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ opens today overseas, and fans are already buzzing on Twitter over its end credits. The Sony Pictures release concludes with a teaser for the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” a new sequence that has been added since “Spidey 2″ premiered in London last week.

The montage, which features a blue Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, is meant to mimic the coda scenes that conclude the Disney and Marvel Pictures juggernauts, including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which introduce new characters.

But in the case of the “Avengers” films, Disney is promoting its own material. The Spidey situation is different: Sony, which owns the “Spider-Man” films, is plugging a rival studio’s product, since the seventh “X-Men” sequel is released by Twentieth Century Fox on May 23. (Marvel acts as a traditional licensor for the non-Disney-owned Marvel characters.)

Why would Sony do that?

The reason, Variety has learned, is »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" Updates - The 'Hulk'

16 April 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige was recently asked about a solo, stand-alone "Hulk" movie, starring actor Mark Ruffalo as 'ol greenskin', following his appearance in "Avengers: Age Of Ultron".

"We have been discussing after 'Avengers' what that would be, what that would look like", said Feige. 

"It’s really Mark Ruffalo's portrayal of 'Bruce Banner', in the way Joss Whedon brought him to life in 'Avengers' ...

"...all of the effort related to Hulk right know is going to 'Age of Ultron'. It’s exciting, because he hasn’t been in any other film, so you can expect to have a lot of 'Bruce Banner' and 'Hulk' in 'Age of Ultron'. Where do we go after that ?

"We’ll see. It will be a little while before we figure that out but, we do think there’s plenty of opportunities with the 'Ruffalo Banner'."

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role as The Vision

16 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Trailer Trashin’: Jon Favreau Gets Cooking in Chef

14 April 2014 9:14 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Happy Tax Day, dear readers! I hope a lot of you have gotten out and seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier by this point – because it’s totally awesome. And if you’re looking for something scarier at the theater right now, I recommend checking out the new horror movie Oculus. In the meantime, this week’s edition of Trailer Trashin’ steps away from the big summer movies and takes a look at the upcoming indie comedy Chef.

Premise: When Miami-born chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) tries and fails to open a restaurant in Los Angeles, he returns to Miami to fix up a food truck, which he names “El Jefe Cubanos,” and gets reacquainted with his ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara). He plans to drive across the country to take another crack at success in L.A.

Paul Bettany confirms he will play Vision in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

14 April 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) It’s official: The Vision is coming to "The Avengers: Age of Ultron". Appearing Thursday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote his new movie "Transcendence", actor Paul Bettany confirmed he’s playing the superhero android in the Marvel sequel. The specifics of Joss Whedon’s vision for the Vision, however, remain under lock and key. “He can do all sorts of things,” said Bettany, who voiced J.A.R.V.I.S. in the three "Iron Man" films and in "The Avengers", “but I’m not allowed to really talk about them and what we’re going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me.” Bettany said he’s excited to have a more active role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even if it comes at the expense of his very cushy "Iron Man" gig. »

Paul Bettany Will Be Vision — Confirmation from the Man Himself

14 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We have been speculating about the role Paul Bettany will play in Avengers: Age of Ultron ever since we knew there was going to be in Avengers: Age of Ultron. (Check out this old post speculating that Jarvis could become Ultron. How young we were, how innocent.) The earliest hint that he could play Vision was in August of last year. Variety called it confirmed back in February. On Friday, the actor confirmed it himself.

In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Bettany, who currently voices Tony Stark’s computer,  said he was making the jump from Jarvis to an actual appearance onscreen as Vision.

"It's very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing Jarvis for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give me a »

Gwyneth Paltrow on 2014 Coldplay on Tour with Ex Husband Chris Martin?

14 April 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Is Gwyneth Paltrow ready to go on the 2014 Coldplay Tour with ex husband Chris Martin? An earlier report made that claim, but it appears she won't make it. The 'Iron Man' actress split with the band's frontman after 10 years of marriage last month and it was rumored that they had parted on good terms since they were on holiday together at the time. However, it has now been revealed that relations between the couple may be worse than they seem and reports of Gwyneth joining Chris Martin on his upcoming tour so that they can spend time together as a family appear to be false. An ex-boyfriend of Gwyneth said: ''The rosy picture in the Bahamas does not necessarily map to reality. ''She has confided to friends that all is not well with post-split relations with Chris, and there is no truth that she's going on tour with him. »

Paul Bettany Confirms Vision In "Ultron"

14 April 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been reported and assumed, but never confirmed - until now. Actor Paul Bettany, who voices Tony Stark's smart computer J.A.R.V.I.S. in the "Iron Man" films, has confirmed he is playing the Marvel superhero Vision in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron".

Bettany appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote this week's release of "Transcendence" and confirmed he's playing The Vision and actually had to work on the set (as opposed to just visiting a recording studio):

"It's very exciting for me, but everything is a double edged sword, right? Because I was playing J.A.R.V.I.S. for years and my job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, and then they would give ma huge bag of cash and then I'd go home.
