Yesterday, a new photo surfaced from the Edinburgh, U.K. set of Avengers: Infinity War, which gave fans their first look at the returning Avenger Vision. While he was certainly expected to be back for this massive superhero ensemble, Marvel has yet to confirm any cast members at this time. Paul Bettany's iconic character is confirmed by these videos, though it isn't clear if that the actor himself is doing these stunts, or if it's his double. This latest video shows Vision in action, using his super powers to escape a fight.
The video surfaced last night from Twitter user "Mundo Vengador," who claims that this video shows, "Vision being kidnapped and fighting two aliens on the set of Avengers: Infinity War." Unfortunately, this Twitter user wouldn't elaborate further on this scene, or reveal who exactly these aliens are. It's possible that these aliens are working for Thanos (Josh Brolin »

As with the revelation last week that a Venom spinoff was back on at Sony Pictures, the studio is still making the best of their Spider-Man license, as it was revealed late Wednesday that a Black Cat and Silver Sable spinoff from the web-head franchise was being turned into a priority by the studio.
Previously, it was unclear how far Sony came in pursuing a Black Cat movie, but now the answer indicates… pretty darn close. Indeed, THR broke that Sony has tapped Christopher Yost to rewrite a previous existing script for the project. Furthermore, the script he is reworking is one turned in by Lisa Joy, who recently co-created a little genre show you might have heard about: Westworld.
This project has apparently been long in the works, »
The strangest thing about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that for nearly ten years, its entries have only ever been good. Even the commonly accepted franchise “losers” – The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World – are “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, with 67%, 72% and 66% ratings respectively. Even the highly controversial Iron Man 3, which completely reimagined Tony Stark’s arch-nemesis The Mandarin from the ground up, sits at an imposing 79%. Even those straight-to-Netflix series have been critical darlings, with Luke Cage’s 96% rating being the highest of anything in the franchise. Marvel’s latest

The big news of the week, much to everyone's horror, is that Warner Bros. is reportedly in the early stages of developing a Matrix Reboot. Been living under a rock all week? Yup, you read that correctly, "A Matrix Reboot." Reports suggest the very talented Michael B. Jordan is being eyed to anchor the reboot, yet fans are understandably not pleased. Almost all agree a reboot is a bad idea, though some of you commented that you thought exploring the universe further in the form of a sequel or tangential film is not a terrible one.
Zak Penn, writer of The Incredible Hulk and Spielberg's upcoming Ready Player One, was mentioned in the initial report as a possible writer of a treatment for the reboot, though a writer's room of sorts was also mentioned. Now, Penn has taken to Twitter to clear a few things up and defend the idea of expanding the universe, »

The latest Netflix-Marvel mashup, Iron Fist, opens with a barefoot Danny Rand walking through New York City.
Rand, dressed in the grey, loose linen of a gap year traveller, is on his way to the billion-dollar Rand corporation, the company founded by his late father, but his attempt to enter the company building is thwarted because a) no one remembers him and b) he looks like a man at risk of playing Wonderwall on an acoustic guitar.

The 1980s has proven to be something of a golden era for kids TV. Transformers has clearly stood the test of time, and remains popular to this day, amongst fans of the original as well as entirely new generations. Stemming from a TV show originally, the concept has been well franchised, including through a series of more recent filma and comic books, which have helped return Transformers to public consciousness. Of course, it was only a matter of time before this was harnessed by leading slots developer Igt, and Transformers: Battle for Cybertron is the result.
This slots game has been around for a while now, but remains one of the leading titles in the Igt catalogue. As developers, Igt have been known to put out some fairly basic games, just in terms of the graphics and the in-game features. Fortunately, they seem to have thrown all caution to the wind with their Transformers slot, »

Captain America: Civil War, though billed as a Captain America movie, was more or less an Avengers movie. Many jokingly called it Avengers 2.5. Some members of the team did have to sit the big brawl out, though. Namely Thor and Hulk. It turns out that because he wasn't included, Chris Hemsworth thought he'd actually been fired from his role as Thor.
The actor recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming movie Thor: Ragnarok, his third solo movie as the God of Thunder. In his mind, that movie wasn't even going to happen. At least not with him, since he didn't get to duke it out with some of the other Marvel superheroes in Captain America: Civil War. Luckily he wasn't right, but it is kind of funny to think that someone so beloved by Marvel fans even had to have that thought. Here is what he had to say about it. »
Update: Details added regarding a potential writer's room near the end.
Even though we live in an era where practically every film franchise under the sun is likely to get a remake, reboot, or sequel at any given moment. You may think that your favorite movie, book, or series is safe, but no, it’s not. Nothing is safe in Tinsel Town. When Ben-Hur is a movie that gets remade, you really know that nothing is sacred. The same goes for the Matrix films. The first one was a huge testament of innovative filmmaking, unique ideas, and layering big ideas under the skin of a popcorn flick.
The Matrix showed that with the perfect mix of thriller, intrigue, action, and philosophy, you can make a film rise above expectations. Sadly, with its sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, it also proved that delving too deep into a mystery »

We’re no stranger to Hollywood’s fascination at rebooting long dormant franchises at this stage, with quite a large number actually being quite good (Kong: Skull Island being the most recent example. Read our four star review here). But this latest piece of reboot news personally feels like a step too far, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that there are plans to reboot the ground breaking The Matrix with screenwriter Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk, X-Men: The Last Stand) in talks to write the treatment of how this new adventure will pan out. What’s more, the studio already have their eye on Michael B. Jordan as their potential leading man, even though the project is little more than a twinkle in some executive's eye at this stage. Warner Bros. are said to be looking for the blessing of The Matrix creators The Wachoski’s for this new reboot, »

Warner Bros is said to be planning a cinematic universe for its new The Matrix movies...
Well, after year and years of rumours about a possible The Matrix 4, this week things started to suddenly fall into place. News landed a day or two back (see below) that Warner Bros was investigating a possible reboot of The Matrix movies, with Zak Penn linked with putting a screenplay together. Furthermore, Michael B Jordan’s name was thrown into the mix as a possible star.

Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase 4 sequel Avengers: Infinity War started production back in January. Even though filming has been under way for a few months, little has been revealed about the story. We reported in January that Peter Dinklage was being sought to play an unspecified character, with theories running rampant that he's playing either Modok or Pip the Troll, neither of which have been confirmed. Today we have word that the movie has added another cast member, motion capture specialist Terry Notary, who will have a pivotal role.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Terry Notary, who was promoting his work as the title ape in Kong: Skull Island, which he performed via motion capture. He has also portrayed the ape Rocket in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming War For the Planet of the Apes, and Peon in last year's Warcraft. »
Although not many may come to think it, Hulk and Wolverine have been inextricably linked since they went toe to toe in Logan’s first appearance way back in The Incredible Hulk #181. As time’s gone by, the two have repeatedly locked horns, teamed up and even carried their storied history over into other media, namely the 2009 animated film Hulk vs. Wolverine, which I highly recommend checking out.
Well, it looks like Marvel is taking the next step by combining the two. For now, all we have to go on is a cryptic image Tweeted by editor-in-chief Axel Alonso that was captioned with “Under Construction” that shows some kind of Hulk/Wolverine hybrid in a stasis tube (check it out above).
Now, let it be known that Logan met his end in continuity proper in 2013’s Death of Wolverine, with X-23 since taking his place. Likewise, Bruce Banner recently bit »

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe began with 2008's original Iron Man film, few people realized that the first appearance of Nick Fury in the inaugural Marvel Studios post-credits scene would've led to something so monumental. It's actually kind of hard now to think about a superhero film climate without the massive shared universe's presence, since it's existed for nearly a decade by now. In 2008, the big superhero movies that arrived that summer were the aforementioned Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, and that was also the summer that gave us The Dark Knight. We were only two years removed from entries like X-Men: The Last Stand and Superman Returns, with both of those franchises being in precarious positions by the time the McU debuted. Now, though, we...

Capping off a busy day for the Marvel camp, a series of behind-the-scenes pictures for Thor: Ragnarok have now surfaced online showcasing all-new aliens, otherworldly sets, and Chris Hemsworth leaping into action as the eponymous Norse God.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt For the Wilderpeople), Ragnarok is the third and final Marvel movie on course to release in 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first two – and it’ll herald the hotly-anticipated reunion of Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. But if Joss Whedon’s Avengers toyed with the idea of pitting the allies against one another all those years ago, by tapping into Greg Pak’s beloved Planet Hulk comic book, Thor: Ragnarok will take that bubbling rivalry and thrusting it smack bang in the middle of Sakaar’s gladiatorial arena. You’ll even get an early glimpse of that »

Thor: Ragnarok is a flick that’s shaping up to be one of this year’s potential wild card movies. While we all loved the character of Thor, there was much to be desired in his first sequel, Thor: The Dark World. As fun as that movie was at times, there was little denying that it was a bit of a narrative mess. So much so that, as of this writing, it sits at 66 percent on Rotten Tomatoes as the lowest rated Marvel flick in the McU (though, still not that bad, when all said and done). Since the bar had been so consistently high in the past, its narrative weaknesses were all the more glaring.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk. »

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
