Will Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Have An Infinity Stone? Here's What James Gunn Says

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ever since the Tesseract was introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger, the Infinity Stones have loomed over the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it wasn’t until Thor: The Dark World that they were actually identified as those objects of power. Four Stones have been seen so far, leaving two to be introduced sometime before Avengers: Infinity War. Fans are speculating where in Phase Three the Time and Soul Stones will pop up, but at least we can take out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as a potential candidate. Despite Guardians of the Galaxy revealing the purple Power Stone, a.k.a. the Orb, to audiences in 2014, director James Gunn let fans know during a Facebook video Q&A that none of the Infinity Stones will factor into the sequel’s plot. As he put it: We're not really so much about the »

Jackie Earle Haley To Play Odin Quincannon on AMC's 'Preacher'

9 February 2016 8:30 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The AMC television network is getting ready to put its series adaptation of the Preacher graphic novels into production. Starring Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), and produced by Evan GoldbergSeth Rogen and Sam Catlin, the series has plenty of positive buzz around it. That buzz should only grow now as news spreads of the latest casting for the show.

Jackie Earle Haley (WatchmenA Nightmare on Elm StreetLittle Children) has just signed on for a six-episode arc on the show, and he'll be playing a character very near and dear to fans of the books: Odin Quincannon. 

Haley has plenty of geek cred amongst comic book fans thanks to his work as Rorschach in Zack Snyder's Watchmen, and his casting seems like a slam dunk for Preacher

Here's how The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news of Haley's casting, describes the series:

"Based on Garth Ennis »

Agent Carter Recap: Square Peg, Round Hole

2 February 2016 7:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you look at the full scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are few characters whose lives we know more about than Peggy Carter. In the early 1940s of Captain America: The First Avenger, we met her as the military woman who first saw potential in Steve Rogers. We spent Agent Carter's first season watching her adjust to postwar life as an S.S.R. agent in New York City. A Marvel "one shot" short, which was included as a bonus with Iron Man 3, reveals that she turns out to be one of the founders of S.H.I.E.L.D. And, thanks to the 60-year jump between The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier, we know the broad strokes of the rest of her life: A decades-long career as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, a husband and two children, and eventually, a retirement home, »

Former Captain America Contender John Krasinski Would Be Up For Another Marvel Role

28 January 2016 1:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s difficult to imagine another actor playing Captain America in the McU now that we’ve seen Chris Evans own the role on so many different occasions over the years. But back before the Snowpiercer star signed on to play the Sentinel of Liberty, there were several other contenders for the part in Captain America: The First Avenger – and a select few even got to the trying-on-of-the-costume stage of negotiations.

One of these was former Office actor and star of Michael Bay’s new movie 13 Hours, John Krasinski. In an interview with Digital Spy, Krasinski reveals that he might still be interested in taking another crack at the McU as a different character – specifically a villain, if he has any say in it.

I’ll take a Marvel movie anytime. I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it. The Captain America thing was hilarious. »

John Krasinski Wants To Play A Marvel Villain After Losing Captain America Role

28 January 2016 8:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

For those who don’t know, John Krasinski was among the several actors who were being considered for the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2010. And though that coveted part evidently went to Chris Evans, Krasinski was recently asked whether or not he would still be interested in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Especially considering the actor has made the leap from comedies to action movies with Michael Bay’s recently-released 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi adaptation. “I’ll take a Marvel movie anytime,” Krasinki told Digital Spy while promoting 13 Hours. “I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it.” The actor then began to reflect, for the first time, on his missed opportunity to play the Sentinel of Liberty. “The Captain America thing was hilarious. As much as I had fun doing it… I definitely got to wear the suit, »

'Agent Carter' season 2 kicks off with suspense, wastes no time connecting to Doctor Strange

21 January 2016 3:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If I could describe “Marvel’s Agent Carter” to someone who has never seen the show, this is what I would say: If you’re a fan of intrigue, mystery, murder, mayhem, secret societies, and fast talking foreign agents, then “Agent Carter” is for you. While it is directly connected to the comic book world of Marvel and a slew of Marvel films like “Captain America” and “The Avengers”, it’s also a fantastic serial mystery show that will satisfy the tastes of any armchair detective looking to test their powers of deduction. Season two begins with a robbery and a double cross -- Russian assassin Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan, “White Collar”) is holding up a bank to steal a silver lapel pin from the safety deposit box of a secret society. Her heist is interrupted when our heroine, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, “Captain America: The First Avenger”) busts »

Who Is Agent Carter? A Brief History of the Marvel Heroine

19 January 2016 6:50 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This story originally ran on January 6, 2015. With Agent Carter returning for its second season tonight, we're republishing it. Don't feel bad if you have no idea who the title character of ABC's Marvel's Agent Carter is. She's based on a comics character who's been around in various forms for decades, but who is by no means iconic in the comics world. Prior to 2011, most geeks would've been hard-pressed to name a single story arc involving her. But in that year, she made her live-action debut in the cumbersomely titled Captain America: The First Avenger, portrayed with grit and grace by Hayley Atwell. The movie was a hit, Carter went on to have a few live-action Marvel appearances, and a couple of years later, boom, here we are: Peggy Carter is a tentpole character for Marvel Entertainment. Indeed, Peggy's sudden rise to fame is a kind of bellwether »

"Agent Carter" Boasts "Doctor Strange" Tie-Ins

13 January 2016 3:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

ABC's "Marvel's Agent Carter" is set to kick off its second season next week with the series shifting its location to Los Angeles for its sophomore outing. Though the first season had plenty of callbacks to "Captain America: The First Avenger," it sounds like the upcoming second season wil include a key connection to the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film.

Speaking with Cbr, executive producer Michele Fazekas has revealed that an extra-dimensional energy source in the season has ties to the powers that will be seen in the "Doctor Strange" film:

"Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab - all of which were in L.A. in the '40s, and were developing the space program and were developing nukes.

That's what Isodyne is, and what you'll learn is they »

Who are the 67 characters in Avengers: Infinity War?

13 January 2016 3:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen speculates on who might be in the cast of Avengers: Infinity War…

It was revealed yesterday that the cast of Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2 was currently a wall with 67 character names on it. Sixty-seven. That’s a lot of characters. Suddenly that rumour of a $1 billion budget doesn’t seem too out of the realm of possibility.

But who will be in the film? I’ve gone back through the various Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to speculate on all 67 members of the cast, as well as make predictions on future films to fill out the numbers. This is not an exact science, as you can imagine.

Let’s start things off with what we can probably guess for certain – the cast of both Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War (as there is a lot of cross-over). Presuming that no one in the main cast dies »

12 January 2016 6:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just one week left until Season 2 of Marvel's Agent Carter debuts, intriguing new details have surfaced, which reveal even more connections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large. The show has previously featured Captain America: The First Avenger star Neal McDonough as Dum Dum Dugan, and Dominic Cooper will be back to reprise his role as Howard Stark, the father of Tony Stark. Today, executive producer Michele Fazekas reveals the upcoming season will tie in to one of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, Doctor Strange. Here's what she had to say, when asked if the extra-dimensional energy source known as Darkforce will tie into the McU.

Agent Carter Season 2 Will Include A Link To Doctor Strange

12 January 2016 4:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first season of Agent Carter featured some very cool nods to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the upcoming second batch of episodes looks set to take that to another level. That’s because Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter makes the move from New York City to Los Angeles in order to investigate Isodyne Enery, a company tied to classic Iron Man villain Madame Masque.

Now, it’s also been confirmed that the season will also address the extra-dimensional energy known as the Darkforce a little later on, and as comic book fans should know, that’s something Phase 3 superhero Doctor Strange is very familiar with.

So, how exactly will Agent Carter link to that movie? Showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters explain:

British cinema behaviour: 67 examples of bad experiences

When things go wrong on a cinema trip, from bad customer service, noisy audiences, to, er, 'other things'...

As part of our survey on the behaviour of audiences in British cinemas, and how well cinema chains respond to it, we asked a couple of open questions. In this post, we're looking at where we asked for specific examples of good or bad behaviour and practice you've experienced from your cinema visits. We had over 2000 responses, so we've had to pick and choose. But here's a flavour of what you told us.

We've quoted verbatim, save for correcting the odd typo...
