‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Rockets to Dominant Social Media Buzz

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Rockets to Dominant Social Media Buzz
Disney-Luscasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” dominated social media buzz last week in the wake of the Dec. 9 world premiere and announcing its dedication to the late Carrie Fisher, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

“The Last Jedi,” which opens Dec. 15, generated 368,000 new conversations last week to bring its total to 4.75 million. Tracking has shown the tentpole’s opening weekend could be in the $200 million range at the domestic box office — which would be the fourth-largest of all time after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World” and “The Avengers.”

Directed by Rian Johnson, the movie picks up where 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” left off. It stars returning cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Andy Serkis. The new cast members include Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio del Toro. It’s the final film role for Fisher, who died last

Charlie Cox Plays Coy When Asked If McU Movie Characters Could Appear In Daredevil

Fans are forever wondering if there will be a crossover between the movie and TV halves of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Usually people imagine this taking the form of the Defenders hopping over to the big screen for an Avengers film, but sadly, this is something that’s been routinely ruled out by the cast and crew on both sides.

What if we’ve been looking at it from the wrong angle, though? What if the more likely way a crossover could happen is for one or more of the movie characters to jump over to the Netflix side of things? Though there’s been no indication of that happening yet, Daredevil star Charlie Cox seems to have hinted that it’s a possibility.

At Ace Comic-Con Long Island this weekend, the same event at which he made clear that he had not been approached to appear in Avengers 4, the

Will Wolverine Ever Cross Over Into The McU? Hugh Jackman Shares His Thoughts

Day by day, we’re beginning to form a clearer understanding of the potential Disney/Fox merger and, crucially, what it’ll mean for the McU going forward.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is reportedly keen to gain access to the X-Men and “cross-pollinate” its character roster with that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has fueled rumors that Disney‘s pursuit of 21st Century Fox will leave the door open for Hugh Jackman to don the adamantium claws once again.

It’s a crossover that has been rumored for the best part of 20 years, and one that gained a tremendous boost after Marvel and Sony decided to incorporate Spider-Man into the McU. But if Disney closes its landmark deal and assumes control of Fox’s entertainment assets, a Wolverine cameo in the Marvel franchise isn’t necessarily out of the question – it’ll merely involve an actor other than Hugh Jackman.

Update: Marvel wants Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine for McU appearance, Jackman says “the ship has sailed”

While the chances of Marvel Studios ever getting its hands on the X-Men appeared to look very slim in the wake of Fox’s ongoing success with the franchise, it now appears to be a very real possibility, with Disney said to be closing in on a deal to purchase 20th Century Fox’s movie assets.

Of course, this opens up the door for Marvel Studios to bring the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if -and it’s a big if – Aint It Cool News is to be believed, Disney and Marvel are keen on having Hugh Jackman reprise his role as Wolverine.

Now, while the rumour is certainly sketchy (if I was a betting man, I’d say it was pure speculation), it would certainly be a huge box office draw to see Jackman’s Wolverine alongside the Avengers, and the actor has

Hellboy’s David Harbour describes the reboot as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary”

As Lionsgate gears up to begin production on its R-rated Hellboy reboot, new lead David Harbour has been chatting to Variety about the film, describing it as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary” and explaining what drew him to the project.

“Superhero movies are the mythos of modern America,” said the Stranger Things star. “The ancient Greeks had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, and we have Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman. They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation. These movies have been of a certain brand. With Deadpool and Logan, they are trying to do different things. So we are trying to do our own brand of that. I was really excited by that concept — to make a real monster movie that’s dark and scary and about the end of the world.”

Marvel’s Kevin Feige compares Chris Evans’ Captain America to Christopher Reeve’s Superman

It’s fair to say that a few eyebrows were raised when Marvel first announced that the former Human Torch Chris Evans would be taking on the role of Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Evans has since won over any critics with his superb performances in the Captain America and Avengers films, and Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has been singing the actor’s praises in an interview with Vanity Fair, where he compared him to Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel.

“Casting Captain America was super hard,” said Feige. “I started to think, ‘Are we not going to be able to find Captain America, and if we can’t, what are we going to do with Avengers? Is the whole thing going to fall apart?’ And, then, finally opening ourselves up to Chris Evans, who we had initially sort of just looked

Avengers 5 To Be Set In Outer Space?

Even though we still have 5 more movies left of Phase Three – including Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel – fans are already eager to find out what the next stage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will consist of. With the ongoing plotline of the threat of Thanos set to be wrapped up soon, there were fears that the franchise might be ending. However, it’s recently become apparent that that’s absolutely not the case. Far from it, in fact, as there’s a lot of life left in the McU yet.

Granted, we don’t know too much about what Kevin Feige and co. have planned for us beyond Avengers 4 at the moment, but it’s no secret that Marvel is looking to expand the cosmic side of their universe and start exploring new worlds, with the plan being to leave Earth behind once Thanos is out of the way.

Hugh Jackman to Return as Wolverine in Avengers 4?

Hugh Jackman to Return as Wolverine in Avengers 4?
The Disney and Fox merger deal is reportedly done. Several news outlets are claiming that the studios have come to terms and are waiting for the contracts to get drafted and signed. Now that this news is semi-official, Hugh Jackman's name has come up a lot and many are speculating that he will put on the Wolverine costume one more time to rub shoulders with Captain America in Avengers 4. This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as the ramifications that this deal will have on the McU alone, never mind the rest of details about what this means for the entertainment industry.

Hugh Jackman retired from the role of Wolverine after this year's critically acclaimed Logan, but the new Disney and Fox merger might coax him out of retirement one last time. Several news sources including Ain't it Cool News, claim that the deal is done

Rumor: Hugh Jackman To Return As Wolverine For Avengers 4 Cameo?

21st Century Fox is up for sale, and it seems that everyone wants a piece of them. From Disney to Sony and even Comcast, the studio has found themselves with many potential buyers, and though no deal has gone through just yet, it would seem that things are moving quickly, with sources saying that Disney is the top choice for who to sell to. In fact, it was reported just earlier today that both parties are now having their bankers crunch the numbers and work out the fine print, before publicly announcing the deal. In other words, it’s going to happen very soon and for fans, that’s hugely exciting.

Obviously, the biggest talking point here is the fact that if Disney were to own Fox, and all their assets, that’d mean they’d regain control of many of the Marvel characters that they don’t currently have the rights to,

Marvel releases a batch of official Avengers: Infinity War images

Marvel’s Kevin Feige explains how to build a cinematic universe

Over the past decade, Kevin Feige has led Marvel Studios to phenomenal success, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe becoming the highest-grossing movie franchise in history with over $13 billion in box office receipts. This success has prompted several other attempts at shared universes, although the likes of Warner’s DC Extended Universe and Universal Dark Universe have not yet managed to reach the same kind of critical and commercial heights.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Feige was asked what advice he’d give to those looking to build their own universes, responding that:

“The only advice, and I’ve sort of said this already today, is don’t worry about the universe. Worry about the movie. We never set out to build a universe. We set out to make a great Iron Man movie, a Hulk movie, a Thor movie and then be able to do what, at the time,

David Harbour Says ‘Hellboy’ Is a ‘Monster Movie That’s Dark and Scary’

David Harbour Says ‘Hellboy’ Is a ‘Monster Movie That’s Dark and Scary’
David Harbour is gearing up to play a different type of Hellboy.

The actor discussed, at the Variety Studio at the Dubai International Film Festival, the challenges that come with assuming the signature superhero.

“It’s the most physical role I’ve ever played,” Harbour said. “The stunts are incredible, and the action is really incredible, and I’m way too old to be doing that stuff.”

Another trial is undergoing the aesthetic transformation involved with Hellboy’s extensive, makeup-heavy look. “It’s two to two-and-a-half hours in a chair every morning being painted red with all these prosthetics,” he said.

Harbour, who said he read “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola’s graphic novels when he was in his 20s, likened superhero movies to the mythos of ancient Greece. While they had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, modern America has Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman.

“They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation,” he said

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Has Some Advice For The DC Extended Universe

As we head toward Avengers: Infinity War, which – as demonstrated by the trailer – is a giant culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe up to that point, the chief architect of the juggernaut franchise is understandably getting a lot of attention. While the McU is the product of the talents and skill-sets of thousands of dedicated craftspeople, the achievements of Kevin Feige in overseeing the film series, and steering it to over $13 billion in global box office receipts, cannot be ignored. For that reason, Vanity Fair recently conducted an in-depth interview with him.

Evidently, the interview was done well into the theatrical run of Justice League, at a point where the financial disappointment was becoming very clear. Unsurprisingly, then, Vanity Fair asked Feige – without specifics – if he had any advice for others who are perhaps “struggling to emulate” the success of the McU:

Will Hugh Jackman Return As Wolverine If Disney Buys Fox?

21st Century Fox is up for grabs, and it seems that everyone wants a piece of them. From Disney to Sony and even Comcast, we’ve heard that the studio has found many potential buyers, and though no deal has placed just yet, it would seem that things are moving quickly, with insiders saying the papers could be signed by next week. Who they’ll ultimately sell to remains to be seen of course, but if recent reports are to be believed, it might just be the Mouse House – and that’s hugely exciting, for many reasons.

Obviously, chief amongst them is the fact that if Disney were to own Fox, and all their assets, that’d mean they’d regain control of many of the Marvel characters that they don’t currently have the rights to, like the X-Men. And while there’s been no confirmation on if the

We Think We Know How Avengers 4 Is Going To End

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will finally step out of the shadows and take on the combined forces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. After various teaser appearances and cameos dating all the way back to 2012’s The Avengers, there’s a lot of hype for the Mad Titan and he’s all set to be the biggest, baddest enemy the heroes of the Marvel universe have ever faced. We’re sure that the titular team will ultimately be able to take him down, but they’re certainly going to have a tough time doing so.

Not only will Thanos have the Black Order there to help him, but he’ll also be in possession of the incredibly powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which will be fully equipped by the time the film rolls around. It’ll essentially allow the uber villain to wreak havoc and do just about anything he wants, which

Latest Avengers: Infinity War Theory Is All About Tony Stark

Only the great Stan Lee has made more McU appearances than Robert Downey Jr., whose Tony Stark will be going up against Marvel’s Mad Titan in 2018.

We are, of course, referring to Avengers: Infinity War, the super-sized sequel coming by way of Joe and Anthony Russo. Having earned their stripes on The Winter Soldier and last year’s similarly epic Civil War, the Russo Brothers have been tasked with orchestrating what is undoubtedly the biggest Marvel movie in the history of Marvel movies so, you know, no pressure.

Championed as the studio’s “deadliest showdown” yet, speculation is rife that a number of characters (Black Widow? Loki?) will bite the bullet in either Infinity War or its as-yet-untitled sequel, but a new and somewhat dubious fan theory composed by Screen Greek suggests that viewers needn’t worry about the wise-cracking Tony Stark.

They allege that Iron Man’s arc

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ First Trailer Smashes Competition on Social Media

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ First Trailer Smashes Competition on Social Media
Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” dominated social media buzz last week with the release of its first trailer with nearly 500,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

The studio dropped the official trailer on Nov. 29 during ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The first footage showed superhero team-ups — the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and almost every other major Marvel hero — joining forces to take on Thanos (Josh Brolin), who is trying to collect the Infinity Stones. The movie picks up four years after the events of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

The trailer arrived five months after the first footage was screened at Disney’s D23 Expo and at San Diego Comic-Con. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the ensemble cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Brolin as Thanos, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki,

Avengers: Infinity War set photo may feature a major Hulk spoiler

In lieu of an Incredible Hulk solo movie, which due to rights issues with Universal is unfortunately off the table for the time being, Marvel Studios announced that the Green Goliath will be getting his own three-movie arc across Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4.

As we saw in Thor: Ragnarok, Banner had remained in his Hulk form for two years, as his alter-ego developed more intelligence and the ability to speak, and now thanks to a set photo from Atlanta Filming on Twitter, we may have an idea where this arc is set to take us next in Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War Set Pic May Reveal Massive Spoiler For Hulk

Though a standalone Hulk movie has essentially been rendered a pipe dream by Mark Ruffalo in the past, we recently learned that Marvel is cooking up the next best thing: a three-film arc that began with the launch of Thor: Ragnarok in November.

It’s one that’ll seemingly stretch through until the arrival of Avengers 4 in 2019, by which point Marvel Studios will be ready to usher in the much-touted Phase 4. So far, only Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and the untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 have been name-dropped, but Kevin Feige and Co. have teased that the Marvel Cinematic Universe could take on a new form in two years’ time, which is to say that the current arc of Thanos vs. the Avengers will be all wrapped up.

And while Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk has fast become one of our favorite characters on the Marvel roster, something that’s reaffirmed by the frankly hilarious Ragnarok,
