30 Actors Who Almost Starred In Marvel Movies

26 November 2014 1:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comic Book Movie

Picture a world where Hugh Jackman was never cast as Wolverine. Worst yet, picture a world where Robert Downey Jr. was never cast as Iron Man. Is the panicky fanboy inside of you hyperventilating yet? Now, picture a world where Nicolas Cage was never cast as Ghost Rider. Okay, bad example, but you get the point.

There are a lot of “what ifs” in the movie business and Marvel is chock-full of them – hundreds of actors almost starred in some of the most beloved (and not so beloved) comic book movies of all time. And that’s the topic at hand today.

They say that directing is 90 percent casting. Having the right actors can make your movie. Having the wrong ones can essentially doom it. The reason why these actors didn’t land these roles vary greatly from person to person. Sometimes the actor simply wasn’t chosen over another actor. »

Gwyneth Paltrow On 'Pepper Potts' Possibly Returning In Captain America: Civil War

25 November 2014 5:00 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For the first time since the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with Iron Man, it seems that next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron will finally see Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark without the playful banter between he and his main squeeze, Virginia "Pepper" Potts. However, given an Iron Man 4 is not in development and the Armored Avenger is set to appear later in Captain America: Civil War, actress Gwyneth Paltrow was asked if she and Downey will be reuniting for that 2016 sequel. “I don’t know; I’ve heard rumors that maybe, and I don’t know,” the Iron Man 3 actress told Dish Nation during a recent interview. “My fingers are crossed. I would love to be Pepper Potts again at some point in my life.” It is worth noting that Pepper Potts did not have much of a role during the Civil War comic book storyline, but at the time, »

Frank Grillo talks Crossbones return for Captain America: Civil War

25 November 2014 4:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Frank Grillo has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about his Captain America: The Winter Soldier character Brock Rumlow, a.k.a. Crossbones, and reprising his role in the highly anticipated Captain America: Civil War.

“[The Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what’s to come with the next film, and I couldn’t be more humbled and excited, They just kind of called and said, ‘What kind of shape are you in? We’re going to need a body scan, They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove.”

Grillo touched upon the physicality of the role: “He’s a badass, he is just vicious. I like the idea that it’s no holds barred. I was 15 pounds bigger when I did Cap 2, and I’ll put another 15 pounds on to do Cap 3. I love the physicality. It changes the way you look; it changes the way you feel. »

‘Ody-c’ #1 is Gender Swapped, Space Faring Brilliance

24 November 2014 9:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ody-c #1

Written by Matt Fraction

Art by Christian Ward

Published by Image Comics

The Odyssey is one of the oldest and best stories of Western civilization and has been adapted, retold, and expanded upon many times over the years in mediums as disparate as film (O Brother Where Art Thou), modernist novel (Ulysses), and even epic poem (The Odyssey: A Modern Sequel). In Ody-c #1, Matt Fraction and Christian Ward move the wanderings of wily Odysseus to space while performing gender swaps on the majority of the characters. Odysseus is now Captain Odyssia, the leader of one of the only three ships to survive the war against the siegeworld Troia. Like any good adapter, Fraction keeps much of the core of the Odyssey, which is the fickleness of the gods, the difficulty of returning home, and Odyssia’s personal struggle between her yearning for adventure and settling peacefully for her family. »

Andy Serkis on bringing Hulk and Ultron to life through motion capture for Avengers: Age of Ultron

24 November 2014 2:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Andy Serkis is best known for his motion capture roles, such as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Kong in King Kong and Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Most recently, Serkis has been brought on board Avengers: Age of Ultron to help the cast with motion capture through his studio Imaginarium. Serkis also has a live action role in the film, with speculation suggesting that he is playing the Black Panther villain Ulysses Klaw, but his main responsibility was working with James Spader and Mark Ruffalo on their motion capture work as Ultron and The Hulk.

“We did some work on Ultron,” Serkis tells Empire with regards to Imaginarium’s involvement with Age of Ultron. “On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? »

Frank Grillo Will Return as Crossbones in 'Captain America 3'

24 November 2014 12:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier gave us an introduction to popular Marvel character Brock Rumlow, played by Frank Grillo, although we did not get to see him transform into the villainous Crossbones. The actor confirmed earlier this month that he has a multi-picture deal with Marvel, and during an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said he has been invited back for Captain America: Civil War.

Here's what Frank Grillo had to say, revealing that he recently received a call from Marvel about the Marvel Phase Three sequel.

"[The Winter Soldier] was only a taste of what's to come with the next film, and I couldn't be more humbled and excited. They just kind of called and said, 'What kind of shape are you in? We're going to need a body scan.' They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove."

"Guardians" Helmer Talks Shared Universes

23 November 2014 8:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One thing that a handful of studio development executives and some very hardcore Marvel fanboys have in common these days is an adamant belief that a "shared universe" is the only way to go with adapting certain material.

The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly lent weight to the argument, but in its case it had decades of comic book source material, years of planning and plenty of careful world building across individual works before fully unveiling its wider ambitions.

Others who're attempting to jump on the bandwagon don't seem to be anywhere near as organised or patient with the process. "Guardians of the Galaxy" filmmaker James Gunn has now weighed in on his Facebook page with his thoughts on the topic, and hopes studios will become more concerned about making a good base product than concentrating on wild plans to spin it off before audiences have had »

Guardians of the Galaxy Director Says Shared Cinematic Universes Can Be a Mistake

23 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

After the success of "Iron Man," Marvel moved forward with lots of other movies based on its superheroes. These superheroes eventually became part of a bigger cinematic universe with a shared storyline that gave the studio the ability to use Iron Man (for example) in a "Captain America" film. Today, we have Universal Pictures attempting to build a shared universe with its classic monsters, despite the fact that "Dracula Untold" wasn't much of a hit. And Sony, meanwhile, is trying to replicate Marvel's model using Spider-Man characters, even though the last two "The Amazing Spider-Man" installments were the lowest-grossing out of the last five films. James Gunn, the director of "Guardians of the Galaxy," has now updated his Facebook page with a few words about shared cinematic universes and how he believes studios are making big mistakes. He wrote: "Listen, I love big ass shared universes in movies, as well as huge franchises. »

James Gunn on shared movie universes: “Studios are trying to grow trees without a strong seed”

23 November 2014 3:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

These days studios seem to be falling over themselves to replicate the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Fox, Sony and Warner Bros. all looking to develop their own “shared” superhero universes, and even Universal Pictures getting in on the act with its iconic Monsters. Taking to Facebook, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has shared some concerns over the business model, accusing studios of trying to “grow trees without a strong seed.” Here’s what he had to say:

“Listen, I love big ass shared universes in movies, as well as huge franchises. But I’m a little worried about the numerous shared universes being planned by the studios, without having a strong base film to grow from – or in some cases, No base film to grow from. Star Wars had the original Star Wars, the Marvel Universe had the original Iron Man, the Dark Knight series had Batman Begins, »

Why are Marvel's women all such buzzkills?

23 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"You just wanna suck the joy out of everything," Rocket Raccoon complains to Gamora early in Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket's certainly not being presented as the voice of reason here – he's sulking because Gamora refuses to let him blow up moons – but the exchange does hit on something that's been bothering me about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more specifically its women.

In 2018, Marvel Studios will release their first female-led superhero movie in Captain Marvel, a long-awaited announcement that was understandably greeted with excitement earlier this month. Carol Danvers will be McU's third female superhero overall, following Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Zoe Saldana's Gamora, and my only wish is that she be written as something other than an unflappable, stony-faced buzzkill.

Yes, the female Guardian of the Galaxy is the most competent, smart and strong of the bunch, but she's also the least likeable, as polls »

'Pirates' Scribe To Update Steve McQueen’s 'Yucatan' As A Star-Vehicle For Robert Downey Jr.

21 November 2014 3:10 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner and Team Downey are moving forward with Yucatan, an epic tale based on Steve McQueen’s detailed 1,700 page treatment that was envisioned as a star-vehicle for him in the 1960’s and have tapped Pirates of the Caribbean scribe, Terry Rossio, to update McQueen’s vision as a potential star vehicle for Robert Downey, Jr. 

Deadline reports that Rossio will use McQueen’s treatment, which envisioned a renegade salvage’s expert search for Mayan treasure in the Yucatan Peninsula, as a starting point for an updated mind-bending adventure story. Additional details are being kept under wraps. Regarding the announcement, Downey said the following:

“To imbue a McQueen project with a sense of how he might have made it nowadays is a challenge and a thrill. Rossio is more than a great writer, he’s the perfect fit to embrace the existential nature of the project with the action, story and characters that drive Yucatan. »
