Civil War Concept Art Shows Alternate Ant-Man Costume

29 June 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel kicked off the summer movie season last month with their epic sequel Captain America: Civil War, which has gone on to become the highest-grossing movie so far this year. The blockbuster has taken in over $400 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. Yesterday, concept artist Andy Park revealed early designs of Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, but today we have a new glimpse at Ant-Man's early costume design.

Andy Park actually designed the original costume for last summer's Ant-Man, so naturally he was the perfect choice to re-design a new look for Captain America: Civil War. In just five years, he's become a go-to artist for Marvel, having worked on Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, along with the TV shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil.

What Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye Almost Looked Like in Civil War

28 June 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the year halfway over, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War has set the bar high for every other blockbuster to come in 2016. The superhero adventure has already taken in $404 million at the domestic box office, and over $1.1 billion worldwide. This movie kicked off Phase Three in a huge way, featuring almost every Marvel superhero that has been established in the McU thus far, but today we have new artwork that shows how two heroes' costumes almost looked much differently.

Concept artist Andy Park shared early designs for both Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) on Twitter. There are two versions of the costumes for each character, which are both roughly the same, although for Scarlet Witch, one image features the character wearing a headband. In the alternate version for Hawkeye's costume, this archer is seen sporting a mask that covers almost his entire head, which would have been »

Warcraft crosses $400 million worldwide

27 June 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last week’s news that Duncan Jones’ big screen adaptation of Warcraft has become the biggest video game movie of all-time, it has unlocked another achievement.

Warcraft never really found its feet domestically, and has dropped out of the Top 10 after just three weeks (earning around $2 million over the weekend), and its domestic total of $43 million is much lower than the likes of other adaptations like Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Mortal Kombat and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

However a fantastic campaign outside of the Us has pushed Warcraft over the $400 million mark to $412 million. If you go by the industry rule-of-thumb (that a movie needs to do 2.5x its budget in order to turn a profit), Warcraft is now making money. Expect to hear news of a sequel soon.

Sony to build “a whole Spider-Man universe” with Marvel

24 June 2016 3:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony announced that it was developing a further two sequels to the Marc Webb reboot, along with spinoff movies for The Sinister Six and Venom.

Of course, the negative reaction to the 2014 sequel put paid to those plans, leading Sony to form a partnership with Marvel Studios to relaunch the wall-crawler as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War.

With filming on next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming now underway, The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, asking him whether the studio still intends on launching a “whole Spider-Man universe” and has any plans to work with Marvel beyond the main Spider-Man series.

“Yes to both those questions,” said Rothman. “It’s been fantastic, our relationship with Marvel. Sony has the ultimate authority. But we have deferred the creative lead to Marvel, because they know what they’re doing. »

What Does Sebastian Stan Think of a Captain America and Bucky Romance?

22 June 2016 6:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the first three Captain America movies, 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and this year's Captain America: Civil War, it's become clear that Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) have quite the unique friendship. It's this friendship that actually lies at the heart of Captain America: Civil War, with Steve refusing to give up on Bucky. There have been some fans who have interpreted this relationship in a much different way, though, which Sebastian Stan recently responded to.

There have been pieces of artwork floating around the Internet which depict both Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes kissing in bed together. Last month, there was even a trending hashtag #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend that started making waves through social media after it was reported that Disney had a startling lack of Lgbtq characters in its movies released during 2015.

Spider-Man: Homecoming adds Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah

22 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The cast of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming just can’t seem to stop growing, as Deadline reports that young Beasts of No Nation star Abraham Attah has signed on to the film in an unknown role.

Attah’s performance in last year’s Beasts of No Nation earned him an enormous amount of praise, with many viewers labeling him as a talent to look out for. The 15-year-old actor garnered nominations from various award ceremonies, including the Young Artist Awards, the Screen Actos Guild Awards and the Critics Choice Awards. He even took home an Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead and tied at the National Board of Review, USA for Breakthrough Performance with Room star Jacob Tremblay.

While Homecoming is certainly the most high-profile project on the horizon for the actor, he will also appear in Shane Caruth’s third film, succeeding Primer and Upstream ColorThe Modern Ocean. »

Why are the stakes in Marvel movies so low?

21 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the low stakes in Marvel movies…

There are so many things the Marvel movies have done right. They’ve launched a new era of studio blockbusters, faithfully adapted some of their most exciting characters with care, and delivered consistently entertaining feature films that, for the most part, are well worth the price of admission.

Sure, Avengers: Age of Ultron kind of sucked and Iron Man 2 was an unsalvagable mess. But more often than not Marvel Studios delivers entertaining and exciting popcorn fare.

The main criticism Marvel has received over the years is how weak their rogues gallery has been. Most of the films feature fairly unspectacular ‘one and done’ villains who really don’t offer much more than a warm body (or bodies) for our heroes to punch repeatedly. Every once in a while we’re blessed with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki or Daniel Bruhl’s amazing Zemo. »

Hannibal Buress and three more join Spider-Man: Homecoming

21 June 2016 1:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming underway on Spider-Man: Homecoming [check out the first set photos here], Sony and Marvel have added four new additions to the cast.

Comedian Hannibal Buress (Broad City) has signed on alongside relative newcomers Isabella Amara (The Boss), Jorge Lendeborg, Jr. (Graceland), and Jj Totah (Glee). All of their roles are being kept under wraps, but we can assume that given their age the latter three will be playing high school students.

Warcraft is now the biggest video game movie of all-time

20 June 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we reported how The Angry Birds Movie had become the second biggest video game movie of all-time and theorised it would overtake Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in the coming weeks. Well it looks like we were a little off base as the worldwide screenings of Warcraft have propelled it to the number one position.

In its second week of domestic release Warcraft dropped an incredible 71% to only take just $6 million, failing to compete against horror sequel The Conjuring 2 and animated juggernaut Finding Dory. However the film is still playing amazingly overseas – in China especially – and it made another $41 million worldwide over the weekend. This brings its total to $377 million, finally knocking Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time from the number one position its held for so long.

The Angry Birds Movie is now the third biggest video game movie of all-time, sitting $10 million »

Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy vs. The McU Captain America Trilogy

18 June 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Which is the best comic book inspired trilogy? Christopher Nolan’s revered Dark Knight trilogy has become the gold standard for turning comic book super heroes into serious art. However, the three McU Captain America films have been called the best of all the McU franchises. Both are excellent trilogies. Which is better? Let’s take a look.

When Christopher Nolan took over the Batman cinematic project, he revived a character who had been diminished in his previous film appearance (Batman and Robin) and resurrected the Bat, showing the world that comic book films could stand up with other genres in terms of artistic quality, critical praise, box office clout and franchise sustainability. He helped make comic adaptations credible. In his own words, he said, “We wanted to show things that people wouldn’t expect to see in that kind of film”.

Director Jon Watts talks Spider-Man: Homecoming

18 June 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As he gears up to go into production on Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, director Jon Watts has been talking to The Daily Beast about the hotly-anticipated reboot, and in particular the diversity of its cast.

Peter Parker goes to high school in Queens, and Queens is one of—if not the—most diverse places in the world,” said Watts, whose previous credits include the Eli Roth-produced horror Clown and last year’s acclaimed thriller Cop Car. “So I just wanted it to reflect what that actually looks like.”

Watts also went on to reveal how they intend on differentiating the film from the five previous Spider-Man movies:

“It’s been really fun to just look for things that none of the other Spider-Man movies have really explored before, and decide if that’s something we want to work into that. And really making it a high school movie, »
