Thor And Loki Visit A Familiar City In New Thor: Ragnarok Set Photos

22 August 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

New York City.

Not only is it one of the most important cities in our world, but it's also probably the most important city in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it's most famous for being the setting of the climactic final battle in The Avengers, the city has also factored into The Incredible HulkCaptain America: The First Avenger, it'll loom large in this fall's Doctor Strange, next summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it's also the backdrop for everything we've seen so far in Marvel's Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones

And now...

We know that next fall's Thor: Ragnarok will find its titular hero and his trickster brother popping in on the Big Apple for a bit.

Director Taika Waititi and his Thor: Ragnarok production are currently filming in Brisbane, Australia, using that city as a stand-in for New York. He and star Chris Hemsworth had some fun with photos »

As it gears up for its home entertainment release next month, Universal has released a deleted scene from Duncan Jones’ video game adaptation Warcraft, which sees the Orcs discussing their leader Gul’dan’s magic; check it out here…

The peaceful realm of Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization faces a fearsome race of invaders: Orc warriors fleeing their dying home to colonize another.

From opposing sides, two heroes are set on a collision course that will decide the fate of their family, their people and their home. So begins a spectacular saga of power and sacrifice in which war has many faces, and everyone fights for something.

James Gunn responds to critics of Zendaya’s potential casting as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming

20 August 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday it was reported that Zendaya is portraying the character of Mary Jane Watson in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, as opposed to the previously announced ‘Michelle’. Sadly, while the rumour is yet to be officially confirmed, some fans were quick to express their displeasure over the decision to change the race of the long-time Spidey love interest, prompting Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to take to Facebook to express his support for the (potential) casting.

“People get upset when something they consider intrinsic to a comic book character changes when adapted for a film. I get this. There are movies I dislike because I think there’s a basic misunderstanding of the story or the character when the comic is transferred to film (I still hate how in the first Batman movie the Joker was revealed as the murderer of Bruce Wayne’s parents, for instance. »

Rumour: Leaked call sheet for Spider-Man: Homecoming claims to reveal characters and villains

20 August 2016 3:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the reports that Zendaya is playing Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, an alleged call sheet from the movie has surfaced online via Reddit, which claims to provide character details for the core cast members…

If genuine, the call sheet seems to confirms that Laura Harrier is playing Liz Allan, with Tony Revolori as Flash Thompson and Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds. Angourie Rice is also listed as Betty Brandt (although that’s a different spelling from the Betty Brant of the comic books), while Bokeem Woodbine is listed as supervillain The Shocker. Tiffany Espensen’s character is reportedly called Cindy, which has prompted speculation that she could be playing Cindy Moon, a.k.a. Silk, and Kenneth Choi, who played the Howling Commando Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger, is also listed as Principal Morita, which suggests some kind of relationship between th the two characters. »

Spider-man: Homecoming: Leaked Call Sheet Reveals Inclusion Of A Shocking Villain

19 August 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

By now you've heard that Vulture is going to be the main baddie in Spider-Man: Homecoming. And, if you thought the film would follow the similar comic book movie trope of having a single villain for the first film, then multiple villains in sequels...you'd be wrong. According to a document that purports to be a leaked call sheet from the production of Spider-Man: Homecoming, there's going to be another baddie in Tom Holland's first solo outing as Peter Parker.

The document appeared on Reddit, and was quickly deleted, but not before being saved by many a watchful eye. So I'll share it below, but first, here's the big shocker: Bokeem Woodbine is playing...The Shocker!

Bokeem Woodbine, aka The Shocker

Here's the call sheet, which has a few other revelations on it that we'll discuss below:

Rumour: Spider-Man: Homecoming’s The Tinkerer has connections to an Avenger and another classic Spidey villain

12 August 2016 1:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced just a few days ago that Orange is the New Black‘s Michael Chernus had been added to the rather large cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming as Phineas Mason aka The Tinkerer. Well Heroic Hollywood claim to have the scoop on the character, and his role in the movie.

Warning – potential spoilers below.

According to the site, Mason is a former employee of Tony Stark and was personally fired by the man himself a few years ago, making it a post-Avengers event. As he is in the comics, Mason will provide technology for The Vulture and classic Spider-Man villain The Shocker, who will be played by Bokeem Woodbine. Not only that, but all of Tinkerer’s tech comes from Chitari technology.

With Robert Downey Jr. set to reprise his role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it seems likely that The Tinkerer will have some sort of connection to him. »

Trailer Trashin’: San Diego Comic-Con Movie Trailer Roundup

5 August 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. This week sees the release of Suicide Squad, the latest DC Comics film adaptation. In the meantime, the latest Trailer Trashin’ is my quick take on some of the major movie trailers to come out of the recent San Diego Comic-Con.

  Doctor Strange

Premise: After Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), the world’s top neurosurgeon, is injured in a car accident that ruins his career, he sets out on a journey of healing, where he encounters the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who becomes Strange’s mentor in the mystic arts.

My take: After the huge superhero brawl of Captain America: Civil War earlier this summer, the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes things in a very different direction. This is an exposition-heavy trailer, laying out the basics of who Doctor Strange is and the nature of his powers to help general audiences get on-board with »

Tyron Woodley and Martha Kelly join Spider-Man: Homecoming

Despite being deep into production, Sony and Marvel have added a couple of new additions to the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Deadline is reporting that comedian Martha Kelly (Baskets) has secured a role, along with Ufc welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (Kickboxer: Vengeance), who has told The Mma Hour that, “I don’t know if I can even say this, but I’m working on a Marvel movie on Thursday in Atlanta.”

Another Avenger may appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming

1 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Possible spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming follow…

We’ve known for a good while now that Tom Holland’s web-slinger is set to be joined in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming by Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark, but it seems that Iron Man may not be the only Avenger popping in the Marvel and Sony reboot.

According to the Twitter page @AtlantaFilming, Scarlett Johansson has been spotted in Atlanta, which is of course where Homecoming is currently in production, while Comic Book is claiming that they’ve heard Black Widow will feature in the movie, although they’ve been unable to confirm the reports.

It should probably be noted that even if Johansson is on set, she could simply be paying a visit to the production, much like Mark Ruffalo when he was spotted on the Captain America: Civil War set.

There Are No Infinity Stones In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, Director James Gunn States

1 August 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

MacGuffins! Get your MacGuffins!

As much as I enjoy watching the Marvel films, there is no denying that a big crutch they've leaned on in their films is the use of MacGuffins. For those unfamiliar, a MacGuffin is described as follows from Wikipedia:

"In fiction, a MacGuffin is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. The specific nature of a MacGuffin is typically unimportant to the overall plot."

While not every Marvel film has a MacGuffin, there is no denying they're quite common in the McU.

The Tesseract was a huge MacGuffin in both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers, the Aether was a MacGuffin in Thor: The Dark World, and the Infinity Stone was the MacGuffin in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Essentially, when you have the plot revolving around »

'The Rocketeer' Is Getting a Sequel That Will Reboot the Character in a Surprising Way

28 July 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Between his time as an Oscar-winning special effects artist on Raiders of the Lost Ark and helming Captain America: The First Avenger, Joe Johnston worked on another action adventure release set during World War II featuring a hero fighting Nazi villains. That movie, The Rocketeer, wasn't nearly as successful as the other two, but it has developed a cult following. So, instead of merely remaking that 1991 graphic novel adaptation, as was previously the idea, Disney is actually planning a sequel.  The catch is, according to The Hollywood Reporter, we won't be seeing Billy Campbell resume his role as the titular flying hero. The new movie will be set six years later and have a Cold War backdrop. The Rocketeer we saw in the original, Cliff Secord, is...

Disney's The Rocketeer Getting A Reboot

28 July 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you're like me, when you heard the name Joe Johnston was attached to Captain America: The First Avenger, you likely had a warm feeling of familiarity fill your gut. That film, after all, was being pegged as an adventure film during WWII -- a territory Johnston had visited before when he directed 1991's The Rocketeer. The Rocketeer carried all the classic "Tomorrowland"-esque visions of the future technology and spirit of high adventure that made it an irresistible film for me as a kid.

For those too young to remember (or those who skipped the film), it followed the character Cliff Secord who discovered a rocket pack, and becomes mixed up in a big scheme involving Nazis, the mob, Howard Hughes, and the FBI.

According to THR, Disney is hard at work developing a reboot to the 1991 film, and have hired Max Winkler (son of actor Henry Winkler) and Matt Spicer, »
