Avengers: Age of Ultron enjoys $187.7 million domestic opening weekend, hits $627 million worldwide

3 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron arrived in the States this past Friday, with the film pulling in a whopping $187.7 million domestic opening weekend and pushing its global haul to $627 million after just twelve days.

Despite the impressive U.S. numbers, the film fell short of its predecessor The Avengers, which earned a record $207.4 million back in 2012. Early reports were suggesting that the sequel would go on to set a record with around $220 million over the weekend, but it seems that the Floyd Mayweather / Manny Pacquiao fight took a big chunk out of ticket sales for films across the board.

Age of Ultron may not have set a new record, but Marvel now has the three biggest opening days of all time, with 2013’s Iron Man 3 in third with $174.1 million, while the film has already overtaken the lifetime global earnings of The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.6 million »

Ryan Phillippe Says He Might Be Doing A Marvel/Netflix Show, Is He Hinting At ‘Iron Fist’?

29 April 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“No man, I would have loved it, they didn’t want me. I met with them and stuff, I was way into it but no it didn’t happen,” Ryan Phillippe said in 2013, speaking of Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” and the role now made famous by Chris Evans. Yep, in an alternate universe, perhaps the same one where Zayn is still in One Direction (thanks Stephen Hawking), Ryan Phillippe could have been a Marvel Avenger. He didn’t get the role and alas, he’s moved on. But could there be another Marvel role in the cards for him on TV? In a recent Howard Stern interview, the actor, coming off the ABC series “Secrets and Lies," revealed that he’s been discussing a potential role with Marvel and their Netflix TV arm. “Marvel is interested in talking about Netflix, a series possibly. ‘The Daredevil’ series is great, »

Paul Rudd is “trying really hard” to be in Captain America: Civil War

29 April 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen confirming they are also joining the cast of Captain America: Civil War, the cast seems to be ever growing by the day to the point where it’s another Avengers movie before we get Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2. With his movie set for release in the next few months, will we be seeing Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man join the rest of the McU in Captain America: Civil War?

“Um…I don’t know,” he told Uproxx with a smile. “I’m trying really hard to make my case for it.”

Hmmmm. Interesting.

New Short Film Examines the Origins of Harley Quinn

26 April 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We recently came in contact with Peter Dukes, a talented filmmaker and founder of Dream Seekers Productions, and received the scoop on preparations for his sixteenth film.  Ever heard of a naughty little vixen named Harley Quinn

That’s right.  Dukes, who normally leans toward the horror genre on projects, admittedly does not normally do fan films he is breaking his own rule just this once to show some much needed Harley love that we haven’t seen nearly enough on film.  When asked about the reasoning behind undertaking such a project, Dukes stated:

“It's of the utmost importance to me that this film respects the origins of Harley, as I'm a huge fan, but I'm also not afraid to be bold.  To bring to life our own unique renditions of Harley and the Joker, and place them within a story that I feel will stand out from the pack »

Marvel's Spider-Man Movie May Have This Title

26 April 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe-set Spider-Man movie doesn't have a title yet... and it will be interesting to see what it winds up settling on. After all, the simple elegance of just calling it Spider-Man was taken by Sam Raimi's trilogy, and the short-lived Amazing Spider-Man series took the second best option available. So what will the next big screen incarnation be called? Spectacular Spider-Man? Superior Spider-Man? Ultimate Spider-Man? Well, if a new rumor is to be believed, then the film may be called Spider-Man: The New Avenger. This story has been put online by movie reporter and frequent rumor source Umberto Gonzalez, who claims to have gotten unconfirmed information about the in-development collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony. If it turns out to be true, it would fit in with Marvel's past title, specifically the first Captain America movie, Captain America: The First Avenger. At this point »

Double Duty: 9 Actors who’ve Played Both Marvel and DC Characters

25 April 2015 6:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Daredevil moonlighting as Batman? For some actors, one comic book character isn’t enough, nor is one comic publisher. Some actors have jumped the fence between Marvel and DC, playing characters from both companies.

Marvel and DC may have a rivalry going, but that doesn’t stop them from hiring actors who’ve previously worked for the competition. Below is a list of nine actors who’ve portrayed characters from both comic book publishers.

Ryan Reynolds

For Marvel: His first foray into the super hero realm was as Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004). Later, he joined Hugh ‘Wolverine’ Jackman as part of the X-franchise, taking on the role of the mutant Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in X-Men: Origins-Wolverine (2009). He is set to recreate this role in Deadpool (2016)

For DC: He got his big opportunity for super hero stardom playing the cosmic hero with the power ring in Green Lantern (2011). Sadly, that »

Daredevil Recap: Saints and Martyrs

24 April 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A lot happening in this episode, but first: This show needs (needed?) more Claire. She comes back near the beginning of this episode to re-stitch up Matt, and it’s the one light, calm moment in an increasingly dark show. It’s not that the darkness isn’t interesting or fun, it’s just that Claire and Matt have a chemistry that is so hard to find in Marvel TV shows. Agent Carter teased a romance that felt dead on arrival and largely irrelevant while Captain America: The First Avenger could suggest a romance in sorrowful glances. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. prefers angst and lies to actual chemistry, which only shows up in amicable divorces. Meanwhile, the romance of the Iron Man movies only culminated after some serious character growth and contained a kind of open, constant communication you don’t even see in most romantic comedies. It’s clear from »

Captain America: The First Avenger Revisited: “Good Becomes Great”

24 April 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening next Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] We’re not supposed to have pure superheroes. The demand for complexity usually involves inner turmoil, and without that “complexity” there can never be an arc, and therefore the character and his or her movie is “boring.” In most cases, this is true. But in a superhero landscape painfully saturated by tortured men wrestling with demons and what it means to be a good, Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger simply stood up and said, “This is our good guy.” Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) stood in stark contrast to Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). He wasn’t a cocky guy who had to take responsibility. He was confident but humble, strong yet shy, and unabashedly goodhearted. He was the hero not only Marvel needed, but that the modern superhero genre as a whole needed. He was also, like Thor, a bit of a tough sell. »

Press Release -- "An Office Space meets Shaun of the Dead action-packed horror comedy, Bloodsucking Bastards stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern).

Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands »

Joss Whedon says Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man was “the best script Marvel ever had”

22 April 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview with Buzzfeed ahead of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron [read our spoiler free ★★★★★ review here], Joss Whedon got onto the topic of Marvel’s next movie Ant-Man, and more specifically Edgar Wright’s original screenplay for the miniature superhero, which he calls “the best script that Marvel ever had.”

“I don’t get it. I thought the script was not only the best script that Marvel had ever had, but the most Marvel script I’d read. I had no interest in Ant-Man. [Then] I read the script, and was like, Of course! This is so good! It reminded me of the books when I read them. Irreverent and funny and could make what was small large, and vice versa. I don’t know where things went wrong. But I was very sad. Because I thought, This is a no-brainer. This is Marvel getting it exactly right. Whatever dissonance that came, »

Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.
