For Green Lantern, Girard worked on early concepts to establish a visual identity for Green Lantern's energy-charged costume and space-travelling.

For Thor, Girard worked on designs for the Bifrost, and Jotunheim the homeworld of the Frost Giants. The 2011 Marvel film was directed by Kenneth Branagh ("Cinderella") and starred Chris Hemsworth ("Rush") as the God of Thunder. For Iron Man 3, Girard came up with a visual look to the red-hot Extremis effect. The 2013 film was directed by Shane Black ("Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") and starred Robert Downey Jr. ("Chef").

James Gunn intended to kill off Stan Lee in Guardians of the Galaxy

24 December 2014 2:51 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To say Stan Lee got off easy in the Guardians Of The Galaxy would be an understatement. The man apparently narrowly escaped death!

James Gunn has already explained how he wanted Lee to appear in a glass case as part of The Collector’s gallery in his film Guardians Of The Galaxy, but in talking with Jeff Goldsmith during a recent podcast Q&A, the director explained how if it were up to him, Lee’s role in the film would have played out in a far more sinister way. From the sounds of it, he would not have survived the ordeal. “We were going to murder Stan Lee,” Gunn said of the Spider-Man, Hulk and Thor co-creator. “Yeah, we killed him. That’s one of the main reasons why it’s not in the movie.”

Gunn went on to detail how they filmed two different versions of Lee’s »

Mark Ruffalo talks Avengers: Age of Ultron

24 December 2014 12:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Total Film, Mark Ruffalo has shared a few details about Bruce Banner’s role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well of course as that of his alter-ego, The Incredible Hulk

“Banner’s been living in Stark Tower. They’ve been working side by side and Bruce has his own lab now. He’s doing work that augments Tony’s own, which could lead to an experiment going wrong… His relationship with Natasha [Scarlett Johansson] deepens. There’s something similar about the two of them. I see them as lost souls. They’re kindred in some ways.”

And as for the Green Goliath: “[Banner’s] ability to handle the Hulk really gets thrown into question in this film. The hard part is coming back. Hulk doesn’t want to cede his place. It’s much harder to come back from being Hulk than it is to get into him. I »

10 Problems With The X-Men Nobody Wants To Admit

23 December 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Marvel’s mightiest mutants had a bit of a troubled birth. After the success of Spider-Man, the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby were on something of a roll, creatively and financially. The Mutants, as they were initially (not-so-imaginatively) named, were set to be their next big hit in their series of flawed, conflicted superheroes.

But they weren’t. In fact sales on X-Men were so dismal Marvel stopped producing new stories with issue #66, later reprinting a number of the older stories in issues #67-93. It wasn’t until the team got revitalised with the addition of Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and the like that they managed to claw their ways into being of the most popular and successful titles they published.

It was during that classic Chris Claremont run that all the things people love about the X-Men were solidified. The epic high adventures, »

Robert Downey Jr. teases Iron Man 4 again

22 December 2014 1:54 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans clearly want to see much more of Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Just a few months ago the star was asked if we would get an Iron Man 4 to which Downey said yes, before changing his mind and saying no (of course, it was subsequently cleared up with the news that he’s set to appear in the third Captain America movie, Captain America: Civil War).

However, Downey has now taken to his Facebook page to hint at a possible a fourth Iron Man movie, sharing the following image with the caption ‘So…would the next one just be a shot of my chest hair?’

With plans set out through to 2019 and no sign of an Iron Man 4, it looks like Rdj may just be teasing fans here…

Robert Downey Jr. will next be seen as Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron alongside Chris Evans (Captain America »

Chris Hemsworth Is Up Against A Force Of Nature In New Trailer For In The Heart Of The Sea

22 December 2014 10:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has unveiled the second trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart of the Sea, which pits Chris Hemsworth and his ragtag crew against an unrelenting force of nature in the form of a mammoth, seemingly-vengeful whale.

Showcasing more of the characters on this occasion than the marauding, elusive behemoth, this latest clip shines a light on the brave human crew that risked their lives on the expedition — one which would see them cast astray for close to 90 days, fighting against hunger, dehydration and each other.

Taking inspiration from Nathaniel Philbrick’s eponymous novel, Howard’s sea-faring epic will see grizzled first mate Owen Chase (Hemsworth) embark on a daring adventure that will have him come up against Moby Dick in the South Pacific ocean circa 1820. The Thor actor will be joined by Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw.

In the Heart of the Sea trailer pits Chris Hemsworth against a whale

22 December 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The new trailer for Chris Hemsworth's In the Heart of the Sea has been unveiled.

The film is based on the book by Nathaniel Philbrick, which tells the true story of the Essex whaling ship sinking into the Pacific Ocean in 1820.

The Essex was attacked by a sperm whale and the event served as inspiration for Herman Melville's Moby Dick.

Thor star Hemsworth is joined in the cast by Ben Whishaw, Cillian Murphy and Brendan Gleeson. Ron Howard is directing the film, with Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) on screenwriting duties.

In the Heart of the Sea will open in cinemas on March 13, 2015. »
