Four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move in Now You See Me, a visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans).
The Four Horsemen, a magic super‐group led by the charismatic J.Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of hightech, high‐profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white‐collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members’ bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

Remember when Tim Blake Nelson‘s noggin started looking all funky in The Incredible Hulk? Well, if you don’t, it happened around the point where the Hulk and the Abomination starting ripping each other apart. While those two worked out their problems, Dr. Samuel Sterns was having a makeover. Before the finale, we saw Sterns crack a smile while making his transformation into The Leader, the brilliant green-skinned Marvel baddie. He’s a villain favorite for some, possibly even the makers of The Amazing Spider-Man, who used one of his more famous schemes for The Lizard’s grand plan. The Leader is a very comic book-y type of villain, one that could have been too much for Marvel’s Phase I, but now that the studio has pushed the boundaries of its scientific status, bringing back actor Tim Blake Nelson to terrorize The Hulk or The Avengers is a solid idea.

Joss Whedon's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." may be the latest live-action Marvel TV series to sweep the nation, but it is by no means the first. In the late '70's, families would gather around their televisions every Friday night at 9 P.M. to watch a show featuring everyone's favorite not-so-jolly green giant. Starring the likes of Bill Bixby (as Dr. David Banner) and Lou Ferrigno (as the Hulk), "The Incredible Hulk" has garnered a loyal following of fans throughout the years.
In fact, "The Incredible Hulk" was so successful that recently there has been talk of a re-imagined take on the series, helmed by the great Guillermo del Toro. However, with promotion for "Pacific Rim" now underway and huge films such as "Pinocchio" and "Justice League Dark" currently on his plate, it doesn't seem like del Toro will be getting to this passion project anytime soon. »

Iron Man 3 kicked off 2013’s blockbuster season brilliantly, with a sharp script and fresh performance from Robert Downey Jr. at its (arc reactor powered) heart. Marking the start of Marvel’s daring Phase 2, the film came with a lot of required pre-knowledge. There’s three films that have already starred Tony Stark (four if you count a brief cameo at the end of The Incredible Hulk) and three more that need to be seen to fully understand one of those (The Avengers), making this simultaneously the third, fourth and seventh in an impressive series.
Deserving equal praise for its accurate portrayal of Ptsd and thoughtful look at terrorist hysteria, the film works incredibly well as both a standalone effort, as well as a rounding off of Tony Stark’s journey. The film has proved to be a massive success, collecting three quarters of a billion dollars within two weeks »

Alongside news that ABC has decided to pick up Marvel’s TV spin-off Agents of Shield comes the briefest of video teases for the show, which is due to debut this Fall.
ABC’s YouTube page briefly posted the below video before pulling it, meaning it was either an accident or a cagey way to drum up interest in the mystique of the show. The viral video shows blurry, distant footage of The Incredible Hulk (or as some have speculated, possibly The Abomination) causing mayhem, during what appears to be their stand-off from the 2008 Edward Norton-starring The Incredible Hulk. A logo on the right-hand side of the screen reads “Rising Tide” – who, or what, exactly, does this mean?
All Vids Seem To Have Been Removed From Youtube!
Though this is likely just a tease to get people more interested in the series, could it be an indication of the wider plan, »

With "Iron Man 3" passing the $740 million mark in worldwide ticket sales, Marvel Studios is king of the jungle at the moment. The production company behind "Marvel's The Avengers," all three "Iron Man" films, "Thor," "Captain America" and "The Incredible Hulk" has seen its profile rise in the last five years thanks to the global thirst for superhero movies.
"I'd like to think, as we make more movies and they become more successful, there are less and less people that have never seen any of the other ones," Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told HuffPost Entertainment when asked about worries that expanding the Marvel universe in upcoming films like "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Ant-Man" would alienate the audience.
Yet that success hasn't come without a price. As Deadline.com's Nikki Finke noted this week, Marvel is playing hardball with the cast of "The Avengers 2," a decision that could »
