Academy Buys ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Shuttle for $344,000

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It looks like the Academy is ramping up its collection for the upcoming Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, nabbing the Aries 1B Trans-Lunar Space Shuttle from “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

The Academy bought the model at the Premiere Prop’s Hollywood Extravaganza Auction on Saturday for a sizable $344,000.

The shuttle can be seen at length in a memorable sequence in “2001,” as it transports Dr. Heywood R. Floyd (William Sylvester) from the International Space Station to investigate a monolith that was buried on the crater Clavius by unknown aliens. The model is approximately 32″ high, 27″ wide and 28″ deep with a diameter of 94″.

According to the auction house, the director of the landmark 1968 film, Stanley Kubrick, purposely destroyed most of the props, sets, models and costumes from the movie so that they could not be used for other films. The shuttle, however, survived, with an art teacher acquiring it in 1975 under an agreement »

Hayley Atwell Talks ‘Ant-Man’ And ‘Agent Carter’ Future

28 March 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ever since 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter has become a hugely prominent face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After appearing in both Captain America movies, a ‘Marvel One-Shot’ short film, and her own television series, the character is easily one of the more popular addition’s to the overall franchise.

However, Atwell’s reign as Steve Rogers’ former flame doesn’t look like it’s up just yet. Thankfully, the beautiful British actress already has two more appearences lined up this year in both Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Ant-man. Although Joss Whedon has openly confirmed that Atwell will make some sort of cameo appearence in his upcoming mega-sequel, her role in Ant-man has been kept firmly under wraps.

Now, Atwell has briefly spoken about her Ant-man cameo, confirming suspicions that she would appear in flashback sequence:

‘She crosses over, but it’s more of a cameo. »

27 March 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Before English actor Dominic Cooper took on the role of Iron Man's father, Howard Stark, in the 1940s setting of Captain America: The First Avenger and the Agent Carter spin-off TV series, Mad Men alum John Slattery portrayed an older 1970s iteration of the character in Iron Man 2. With Slattery set to reprise the role later this year in Ant-Man, the actor talked recently talked with IGN about returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all its success post-Iron Man 2. "It’s crazy, yeah," he said. "It’s the biggest set I’ve ever seen, I think, or I’ve ever been on certainly. It’s just a gigantic room and there’s numbers and girders and you think, is that what green screen looks like? And things change so fast.

We reported yesterday that the Black Adam character from Shazam!, played by Dwayne Johnson, may be included in the two-part Justice League movie. While the actor continues his promotional tour for Furious 7, he shared more about Shazam!, revealing that he doesn't know who will play the title character yet, and that he thinks his character is an anti-hero. Here's what he had to say below.

"I can't wait to share more casting news by the way. No, we haven't picked a Shazam! yet, and we have been working on the script. Half the scripts [have] already come in. Fantastic, very excited about it. And what I'm really excited about is - because, again, I've lived with this character, and this opportunity for almost 10 years now, so it's like, in my DNA! I'm like a little kid, and it's the opportunity to create his journey, but that journey has to start out properly. »

Russo Brothers Confirmed to Direct 'Avengers 3' & 4?

23 March 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Emails that leaked during the Sony hack last year revealed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are coming on board to direct both Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. That report was never confirmed by Marvel Studios, but just one month later, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon said he does not want to make this two-part adventure, which will close out Phase Three. Today, we have a new report from Badass Digest which claims that both Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have finalized their deals to direct Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.

The two-part sequel does not have any writers on board at this time, but the site also claims that Marvel is in talks with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to pen the screenplay. They are the writers behind Captain America: The First Avenger, »

Dominic Cooper Tops AMC’s Shortlist For Preacher

13 March 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Around this time last year, AMC began work on its adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s nineties comic book Preacher, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg tasked with ushering it to the small screen. Whether it’s in light of their dwindling line-up – Breaking Bad has come and gone, and Mad Men is set to wrap soon – or something else entirely, the network are rumored to be kicking things up a notch.

A speculative spot of casting news has recently commenced its jaunt around the web – and it’s one we recommend ingesting with a smidgen of salt. According to a source over at The Tracking Board, Agent Carter star Dominic Cooper is the frontrunner for the lead role of supernatural reverend Jessie Custer.

Cooper has plenty of experience in the dominion of comic book adaptations, which might explain the choice. He appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger as Howard Stark, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Captain America

12 March 2015 3:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Captain America has been serving his country since before Marvel Comics took that name, and he’s remained a staple of their universe ever since debuting in 1941. By rights, a character with a name like that probably should never have worked, but as the success of Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier prove, people can accept the daftest of superheroes when the man beneath the mask is a great one.

And that’s what Steve Rogers is. An inherently good person who always does what’s right, and not just for his country. He’s someone everyone can look up to and aspire to be, and it’s for that very reason that Captain America has become a symbol both in the real world and in the Marvel Universe. With a 70+ year history, though, there’s a lot you don’t know about Cap! »

Bobby Cannavale compares Ant-Man to Guardians of the Galaxy, “it’s pretty funny”

2 March 2015 4:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was assumed based on the cast and crew of Marvel’s Ant-Man that it would be quite comedic in tone, but a darker trailer than people were expecting quashed some of those thoughts. However, we have been promised by Judy Greer that there was “lots of improvised comedy”, which have come to know from the likes of Paul Rudd. Now, Bobby Cannavale, who is set to play Paxton in the movie, also backs up this idea.

“It’s pretty funny,” he told Nuke The Fridge. “I think so. I haven’t seen anything but it felt funny. It’s Paul, so I think they’re not hiring Paul Rudd to be The Winter Soldier. It’s going to have a sense of levity to it, like Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians is a blue chips superhero movie but it’s a pretty funny film. They just got the right people. »

Captain America screenwriters on a second season for Agent Carter and whether it could explore the Winter Soldier program

27 February 2015 10:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s eight-part series Agent Carter drew to a close on Tuesday evening with the season finale ‘Valediction’ [read our review here], and now writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (whose credits also include Captain America: The First Avenger and its sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier) have been speaking to EW about a potential second season and where it could lead story-wise.

“When we were figuring out the show and the backstory of the show, we had a really nice story about who Peggy is and where she came from. We just didn’t have any time. I would love to tell that story,” states Markus, with McFeely adding, “That’s one of our strongest ideas for the second season: What makes Peggy, Peggy? We like what Peggy is, but if you ask some hard questions, you might wonder: but why is she that way? We have some thoughts on that.”

"Agent Carter" Producers Offer S2 Thoughts

25 February 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Marvel's "Agent Carter" limited series wrapping up its eight episode run last night, questions have turned towards what could be in store for a second season of the show should Marvel decide to proceed with it.

"Agent Carter" Season Finale Spoilers

In a new chat with THR, co-showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas spoke about That ending which ties up events between that of "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and the brief appearance of Toby Jones as Zola.

Does Jones' appearance mean he'll serve as the second season's villain? Fazes says: "He isn't necessarily coming back. That scene wasn't saying that Toby Jones is going to be the big villain of season two or anything. It was just recognizing that this is the start of the Winter Soldier program."

The show has essentially maintained the same audience as "Shield" has in the timeslot, »

Season finale review: 'Agent Carter' - 'Valediction': Listen to the radio

25 February 2015 6:20 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's "Agent Carter" season finale coming up just as soon as I offer you Rosalind Russell's private number... Our Donna Dickens has been covering most of this season on her Harpy blog (here are all her stories on the show so far), and she should have a more thorough take on "Valediction" later this morning. (Update: Here's her review.) But though I haven't been writing about "Agent Carter," I've been enjoying it a lot — in many ways more than even the improved second season of "Agents of Shield." This one's been helped enormously by a less-is-more approach: fewer episodes meant less padding and more narrative momentum, and while the show wound up with a sizable ensemble, the focus was always on Peggy, and the creative team had a clear sense of who she was and what her arc for the season would be.
