Avengers: Age Of Ultron Size Chart Teases Hulkbuster Size

19 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A character size chart supposedly from Hot Toys has leaked, giving us a look at a size comparison of the various cahracters in Age of Ultron. It offers a tease of just how big Tony Stark's Hulkbuster will be, as well as Vision and Ultron II. The Hulkbuster armor is eleven freakin' feet tall, and it looks pretty damn burly. It's going to be so cool watching the eight-foot-five Hulk battling this thing! Unfortunately, the three characters here that we all want to get a look at have been blanked out, but that's ok. It gives us something to look forward to when we are overloaded with trailers, TV spots, and clips for the film. 

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the »

Marvel's Victoria Alonso calls for female superhero movie

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel's exec VP of visual effects and post-production Victoria Alonso has addressed the lack of women involved in Marvel movies.

Speaking at the Visual Effects Society Production Summit, Alonso lamented the fact that post-production was a male-dominated industry.

Which Marvel movies pass the Bechdel test?

Thor is female - but what do comic book fans think?

"You've got to get the girls in here, boys. It's better when it's 50-50," Variety quotes her as saying.

"I have been with you beautiful, handsome, talented, creative men in dark rooms for two decades and I can tell you those rooms are better when there are a few of us in them.

"So as you take this with you, please remember that it's Ok to allow the ladies in. They're smart, they're talented. They bring a balance that you need."

Marvel Visual Effects Leader Pushes For More Women, Tells Newcomers ‘Fill The Gap’

18 October 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Victoria Alonso, Marvel Studios’ exuberant Evp of visual effects and post production, told a roomful of VFX industry leaders this morning that it needs to invite more women into the industry, and onto the stage. And for entertainment industry newcomers trying to find their way into the business, she had simple advice: “fill the gap.”

“I love the fact that you allowed a woman to talk to you this early in the morning,” Alonso told the mostly male audience. “It’s better when the room is 50-50 (male-female). It’s okay to let the ladies enter. They bring a balance.”

Alonso was speaking in a Q&A before more than 150 people at the Visual Effects Society’s Ves Summit on Saturday morning. The summit, being live-streamed online to Ves’s membership around the world, urged young women considering careers as digital artists to make it happen, but said one reason »

New Avengers: Age of Ultron promo art teases Hulkbuster and Ultron’s scale

18 October 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new piece of promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit the web. Courtesy of ComicBookMovie.com, the art seems to come from Hot Toys, and shows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lined up with their respective heights listed. It also features an infuriatingly blanked-out look at Vision, Ultron himself, and the long-awaited Hulkbuster armor. Check it out…

While the art doesn’t show much, it does give us an idea of how the Hulkbuster and Ultron will compare to the Avengers. It will be mighty hard for the likes of Iron Man and Captain America to take down the 8 foot tall Ultron, but will Hulk be able to hold his own against Tony’s 11 foot Hulkbuster armor? We’ll just have to wait until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters to find out…

Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and »

'Scandal' appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers

17 October 2014 7:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers “Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” Plus: “ScandalSecret Service agent talks about his big role.

Be careful with pubic hair: 6 lessons the Birthday Boys learned from the first season of their show

17 October 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When IFC ordered a series from Los Angeles sketch-comedy group the Birthday Boys, the septet wasn’t starting from scratch: Not only did it have eight years of performance experience under its belt, but it also had Bob Odenkirk—a man whose face belongs on the Mt. Rushmore of sketch comedy—as a collaborator, frequent star, and executive producer. That said, television remained a new frontier for the Birthday Boys, and the 10 episodes they made last year—now available on Netflix—provided a crash course in TV production for them. Ahead of the season 2 premiere of The Birthday Boys tonight at 11:30 Et on IFC, »

'Birdman' Director Considers the Proliferation of Superhero Movies to be "Cultural Genocide"

16 October 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I tend to believe my frustration with Marvel movies has less to do with the saturation of superhero cinema we have experienced as of late (and will experience to an even greater extent over the next several years) than it does with the fact I almost have to report on it to keep from having to shut this site down. That can be frustrating, largely because I think the reporting on superhero movies goes against everything movies are meant to do, which is surprise and excite us. Most of the stories written about superhero movies seek to spoil the movies before they ever hit theaters, going so far as to look for plot details in the toys that are released and the names of the tracks on the film's score. I try my best to stay out of that kind of reporting, but I also see a hit on the statistics as a result. »

Without hesitation, Russo said, "bipolar medication."

While the audience applauded Russo for her bravery, both Latifah and Gyllenhaal looked suprised by the actress' confession. Russo explained, "My mom said my whole childhood … was stop and go. And then I stopped and was like, 'Whoa,' that was it for me."

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

14 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

Iron Man joins 'Captain America 3': 14 thoughts about Marvel's mash-up sequel

1. This is a great idea. Everyone knew that Marvel would figure out some way to keep making movies where Robert Downey Jr. wears some kind of cool metal suit. But Iron Man 4 was always a skeptical proposition. "Fun, Shambling Mess" is basically the best you can hope for when it comes to fourquels. (See: The fish-out-of-time-water shenanigans in Star Trek IV; Stallone solving the Cold War with his fists in Rocky IV; Harry and Ron having a really wacky wizard prom in Goblet of Fire.)
