Here at WhatCulture.com, we recently brought you a great article full of behind-the-scenes photographs from next year’s Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. In those pictures, we got to see the new Avengers members in costume, the titular villain (albeit in very raw form) and much, much more.
This made us think about other great behind-the-scenes shots that have been made public from the various other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies since the franchise’s inception in 2008.
Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have all provided us with great entertainment in the finished article, but photos from on the sets of each of those movies have also proved to be insightful and fun to see as well.
Such photos have shown special effects in action, »

It’s hard to believe that earlier this year, Marvel’s quirky space opera Guardians of the Galaxy was the studio’s biggest gamble and had industry analysts skeptical about how well the virtually-unknown property would perform. But now, after grossing a whopping $326.7 million in the United States, Star Lord and his ragtag group of outlaws are continuing to break box-office records overseas. I’m sure that right about now, Marvel execs are quoting Rocket Raccoon, walking around hallways shouting, “We’re gonna be rich!”
Guardians opened in China over the weekend and rocketed toward a record-breaking $29.8 million, making it the highest-grossing October debut in the country’s history. That little bounty has pushed Guardians past the $700 million mark worldwide.
As of right now, the film has grossed a hefty $705.1 million, putting it head-to-head with this year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which grossed $707.9 million. Guardians is definitely going to »

Robert Downey Jr. agreed to a major role in “Captain America 3,” Variety exclusively reported on Monday, setting up the next phase of Marvel movies at Disney. But Iron Man and Captain America aren’t alone in the Marvel universe. Here’s a list of all of their superhero movies planned, both at Disney and Fox, through 2019.

For a good few years at this point, the road map for the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been clear to anybody paying attention. Since the central MacGuffin of Captain America: The First Avenger and the appearance of a certain purple, craggy-faced cosmic villain in the post-credits sequence to The Avengers, it’s been obvious that the interlinked superhero franchises have been building up to adapting one of the classic, crazy crossover storylines from the comic books: The Infinity Gauntlet. Everybody knows about that, right? Which is what made this morning’s bombshell all the more surprising.
Marvel totally tricked us. Or, at least, they did a sort of double-bluff with audiences – if Guardians Of The Galaxy is anything to go by, The Infinity Gauntlet is definitely coming at some point. But before that they’re apparently going to be adapting another huge crossover event to the big screen, in the form of Civil War. »

Annabelle edged out Gone Girl this weekend internationally, pulling in $28.1M compared to $26.89M that the Ben Affleck thriller scooped up. Annabelle is now tracking 6% ahead of The Conjuring at the same point in its run. The Conjuring went onto to gross $180.6M overseas for a worldwide total of $318M when it bowed last year. For market by market breakouts, see below. Also added are finals for The Judge, Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Hercules and Relatos Salvajes.
Final Update, Monday, 12:18 Pt: Final numbers are in for many films, but we’re still awaiting Warner Bros. to weigh in before we know who won the weekend wrestling match between its horror film Annabelle and Fox’s Gone Girl (which has held the No. 1 one for two weekends in a row stateside). Fox has reported a little under $27M »

Marvel's Agent Carter is still casting main characters as it begins production for it's debut this winter, serving as a bridge between Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2's two halves. Joining the ABC series today is actor Kyle Bornheimer, best known for his roles in Veronica Mars, She's Out of My League and Bachelorette.
The story will pick-up shortly after Captain America: The First Avenger, at the end of WWII. Peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert Ssr (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake »
Although the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron is already rather large, with three new heroes (Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and the Vision) joining the original six members, there’s a possibility that the Black Panther may make an appearance as well.
Marvel executives have shown some enthusiasm for introducing the Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although there are no confirmed plans for a film about him just now, the site Moviepilot points out that one of the shooting locations for Avengers: Age of Ultron was in South Africa, where the Avengers are supposed to battle some Hydra baddies. This has led some to speculate that we might see the fictional nation Wakanda where Prince T’Challa, the Black Panther, rules.
There’s another reason for the belief that we’ll be visiting Wakanda in the film. In the preview footage of Age of Ultron shown at Comic-Con, we »

From Marvel to Star Wars and Universal's monsters, Hollywood's become obsessed with universe building. Mark takes a closer look...
It feels weird to open with a spoiler warning for a medical drama from the 1980s, but if you're particularly sensitive to plot details from St. Elsewhere, you might wish to skip to the first sub-heading.
The infamous season finale placed all of the characters and events that had preceded it in the imagination of one of the doctors' autistic sons, Tommy Westphall, who dreamt it all up while staring into a snow globe that contained a replica of the hospital where it all took place. The funny thing is, St. Elsewhere had crossed over with other American TV shows, including Homicide: Life On The Street and Cheers, meaning they also potentially took place in Tommy's imagination.

Luke Evans is finishing his run as Bard the Bowman in this year's "The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies," the third entry in that series, and he is definitely interested in being an integral part of another franchise. He has a chance at that with this week's "Dracula Untold." Directed by Gary Shore, this new tale of the world's most famous vampire is an origin story, with Evans starring as the Transylvanian Prince, Vlad III. Taking place in the 15th Century, the movie offers the story of how Vlad, (in this version) a kind and just ruler with a questionable past winds up becoming the monster we know as Dracula. Evans spent a few minutes with us earlier this week to talk about the movie and whether he'll ever wear fangs again. Short answer, he hopes to. "I'd love to go wherever he's going to go," Evans said.

As many people will be aware Fox is currently developing a reboot to The Fantastic Four which has finished shooting and gone into post production. Many fans and frankly haters are slamming the film already due to the casting. Whilst people believe the ensemble of heroes are too young as a whole, one of the casting choices sticks out.
Michael B .Jordan will be playing Johnny Storm a.k.a. The Human Torch, who in the comics is a white character but in this film version he is being played by the black actor. Many haters have lashed out for no other reason than because the actor is black, whilst others feel this betrays the source material. However in the film his sister is played by Kate Mara who is white. »

The 87th Academy Awards could see a collection of familiar names in the costume design category, from Oscar winner and 10-time nominee Colleen Atwood to one-time nominee Michael Wilkinson. When It comes down to securing nominations for costumes, it doesn’t matter how well the film has fared in other Oscar categories. Films such as Jane Eyre (2011), Mirror Mirror (2012) and The Invisible Woman (2013) were only nominated for costume design.
Atwood could receive nominations for Disney’s Into the Woods and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes during the upcoming awards cycle. Of her 10 nominations to date, she’s won three: best picture winner Chicago (2002), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) and Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010). Atwood has designed the costumes for nine of Burton’s films: Edward Scissorhands (1990), Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland »

It cannot be denied that Hugo Weaving is one of the greatest actors working today. While Laurence Fishburne is, of course, awesome, The Matrix Trilogy would have been nothing without Weaving’s towering performance as Agent Smith. He added greater depth and complexity to V For Vendetta, and presented Red Skull as a most fearsome foe in Captain America: The First Avenger. But, for all the big budget films he does, it is his selection of smaller, independent projects that make for the most interesting viewing – and that’s what we have here, in The Mule.
Check out the plot summary for the movie below:
“Inspired by true events, The Mule tells the story of a naïve young man who is detained by federal police with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy bodily functions and withhold the evidence… literally. »

One from the ‘we thought that was official already’ pile today – Dominic Cooper will definitely be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (well, its TV wing) in his role as Howard Stark.
He will reprise the part of Iron Man’s dad, which he originally played in Captain America: The First Avenger, in the Agent Carter series which is set to bridge the mid-season gap of the (so far hugely enjoyable) second run of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. later this year.
The official synopsis for the series has long referenced that “Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark”, so this one won’t come as a surprise to many of you.
Marvel.s Doctor Strange continues to move forward at a snail.s pace, but at the very least it is moving forward. We still don.t know who is staring as Dr. Steven Vincent Strange, but now it.s been revealed that the blockbuster will be filmed at Pinewood Studios. Shepperton Studios just outside of London, England. It.s hardly a surprising announcement (which comes to us via OnLocation Vocations), as Marvel have had a longstanding relationship with Shepperton. In recent years the likes of Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and Avengers: Age Of Ultron, have each been shot there, and it.s believed that Doctor Strange will do so in May 2015 as well. As mentioned, however, we still don.t have any clearer idea about who will play the lead in Doctor Strange, which is one of the key movies of »
Marvel is bringing back Howard Stark and has announced that Dominic Cooper will return to reprise his role on ABC's new midseason drama “Agent Carter.” Hayley Atwell stars on “Agent Carter” as Peggy, the titular agent who was integral to the foundation of the agency that would ultimately become Shield. Also read: ‘Boardwalk Empire's’ Shea Whigham to Star on ‘Marvel's Agent Carter’ “Agent Carter” takes place in 1946, with Peggy Carter picking up the pieces of her life after having lost Steve Rogers in World War II, a plot which played out in the movie “Captain America: The First Avenger. »

Over the past month Marvel has been assembling the supporting cast to feature alongside Hayley Atwell in the upcoming ABC TV series Agent Carter, and now it has been confirmed by Marvel that Dominic Cooper is set to reprise the role of Howard Stark, having previously portrayed the character in Captain America: The First Avenger as well as the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot.
Atwell and Cooper are set to be joined in the cast of Agent Carter by Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire) as Roger Dooley, head of the Strategic Scientific Reserve (Ssr), along with Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse) as Agent Daniel Sousa, Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill) as Agent Jack Thompson and James D’Arcy (Let’s Be Cops) as Jarvis.
Agent Carter is set to get underway on ABC in January and will air during the midseason break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

In not remotely surprising but nevertheless very welcome news, Dominic Cooper has just been added to the cast of Marvel’s upcoming ABC series Agent Carter. Cooper, you’ll recall, played Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and reprised the role for the Marvel One-Shot Agent Carter. He joins Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, plus […]

Cooper played Tony Stark's father in Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger" and then returned for a cameo at the end of the "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter" which led to the creation of this limited series.
Atwell returns as Peggy Carter who has to deal with being marginalized once WWII ends and Steve Rogers is gone. Enlisted to the Ssr, the earlier incarnation of what we now know as S.H.I.E.L.D., she does administrative work and goes on secret missions for Howard Stark.

Marvel’s Agent Carter might be the first title produced by the studio to have a female lead, but the supporting cast is very testosterone-heavy. Enver Gjokaj, Chad Michael Murray, Shea Whigham and James D’Arcy have all joined Agent Carter in recent weeks, and Captain America: The First Avenger star Dominic Cooper has long been expected to reprise his role as Howard Stark, the father of Iron Man.
This makes sense in light of the official synopsis for Agent Carter, which describes protagonist Peggy Carter (played once again by Hayley Atwell) finding herself “marginalized” after America’s fighting men return from abroad following the end of World War II. Refusing to stay stuck in her administrative duties, Carter takes on ...

While there was never any real reason to seriously doubt that he would do so, it’s now been made official that Dominic Cooper will return as Howard Stark in Marvel’s upcoming Agent Carter TV series. Cooper first played the Stark family patriarch in Captain America: The First Avenger and had a cameo role in last year’s Agent Carter One-Shot short film.
Marvel announced the news early Tuesday morning, but did not include any indication of how large Cooper’s role will be. My guess is that he’ll be a recurring character on the series, thanks to his involvement in the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the inclusion of “secret missions” that the titular Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) will be tasked by Stark to accomplish.
Tell us, are you excited to see Dominic Cooper don the mustache of Howard Stark once more? Let us know in the comments below. »
