Andy Serkis on his Avengers: Age Of Ultron work

26 November 2014 11:04 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andy Serkis has been chatting about refining Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, and helping with Ultron on Joss Whedon's The Avengers sequel.

It's long been known that Andy Serkis has been working on Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers: Age Of Ultron. As well as taking on a small, unspecified role in the film, Serkis' motion capture studio is also doing performance capture work for the film.

But what does that work involve specifically? "We did some work on Ultron", Serkis told Empire. "On the development of Ultron before James Spader came on board. In terms of movement styles: was he gonna be human-like? Was he going to be robot-like? So we worked with a bunch of different people, from body-popping experts to dancers, to this guy called Neil who’s nearly eight feet tall".

Hello to you, Neil.

Andy Serkis also worked with Mark Ruffalo, to help him perfect his performance as Hulk. »

'Big Hero 6' Featurette Teases End Credits Scene and Secret Cameo

25 November 2014 2:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Be warned, if you haven't seen Disney's Big Hero 6, or if you simply didn't stay past the credits, there will be spoilers for a surprise cameo, so read on at your own risk. While this scene doesn't exactly spoil the main narrative drive of Big Hero 6, it wasn't included in any of the press screenings. It does, however, potentially set up a sequel, so you may want to check out Big Hero 6 in theaters first before reading on.

Big Hero 6 is Disney's first animated adaptation of a Marvel comic book, although it didn't have nearly the same amount of name recognition as a hit titles such as Marvel's The Avengers. Still, Disney managed to keep a Marvel tradition alive at the end of Big Hero 6, by giving comic book legend Stan Lee a voice cameo during an end credit scene.

The scene in question centers on T.J. Miller's Fred, »

"Guardians" Helmer Talks Shared Universes

23 November 2014 8:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One thing that a handful of studio development executives and some very hardcore Marvel fanboys have in common these days is an adamant belief that a "shared universe" is the only way to go with adapting certain material.

The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly lent weight to the argument, but in its case it had decades of comic book source material, years of planning and plenty of careful world building across individual works before fully unveiling its wider ambitions.

Others who're attempting to jump on the bandwagon don't seem to be anywhere near as organised or patient with the process. "Guardians of the Galaxy" filmmaker James Gunn has now weighed in on his Facebook page with his thoughts on the topic, and hopes studios will become more concerned about making a good base product than concentrating on wild plans to spin it off before audiences have had »

Why are Marvel's women all such buzzkills?

23 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"You just wanna suck the joy out of everything," Rocket Raccoon complains to Gamora early in Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket's certainly not being presented as the voice of reason here – he's sulking because Gamora refuses to let him blow up moons – but the exchange does hit on something that's been bothering me about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more specifically its women.

In 2018, Marvel Studios will release their first female-led superhero movie in Captain Marvel, a long-awaited announcement that was understandably greeted with excitement earlier this month. Carol Danvers will be McU's third female superhero overall, following Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Zoe Saldana's Gamora, and my only wish is that she be written as something other than an unflappable, stony-faced buzzkill.

Yes, the female Guardian of the Galaxy is the most competent, smart and strong of the bunch, but she's also the least likeable, as polls »

How Mark Ruffalo Hulked Out on a Preschooler

21 November 2014 6:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I went to elementary school with a girl whose dad was a member of the popular ‘80s band Devo. My schoolmates and I couldn’t help but ask her, all too often, if her dad still liked to “whip it, whip it good.” And that was about a decade and a half after the release of that song. I can’t imagine how mind-blowing it would have been as a kid to go to school with a girl whose father is a major part of the biggest film franchise in the world right now. A young boy who went to preschool with the daughter of Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers’ Bruce Banner/Hulk) was thrown into this situation. Ruffalo went on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and related the story and explained what he did when the boy asked him if he could turn into the Hulk. Egged on by his own daughter, »

After masking Hemsworth's Australian accent with a voice modulator, Kimmel connected with him via Skype and then let his audience ask "yes" or "no" questions in an attempt to narrow down the star's identity.

Once a few heartthrobs had been eliminated with questions like, "Have you played a super hero?", "Do you have a famous brother?" and, "Does the superhero you play use a hammer?", it became clear that the Thor star was People's Sexiest Man Alive.

Though Neil Patrick Harris, Ben Affleck and Chris Pratt -- who covered GQ's Man of the Year issue -- were considered front-runners for the Sexiest Man Alive title this year, they »

'Lego Batman Movie' Will Span Every Era of Batman Filmmaking

18 November 2014 3:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans of The Lego Movie won't get the straight-up sequel The Lego Movie 2 until sometime in 2018, but they will get to explore more of this universe in two upcoming spin-offs, Ninjago in 2016 and The Lego Batman Movie in 2017. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are serving as producers on these spin-offs, with the filmmakers teasing new details in an interview with Empire.

We reported last month that Will Arnett will reprise his voice role as Batman from this year's The Lego Movie for The Lego Batman Movie, which will be directed by Chris McKay. When asked about this Lego superhero spin-off, Chris Miller revealed they plan on honoring every film and TV version of Batman.

"Rest assured that every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged. There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there. There are 40 versions of his origin story alone. »

Joe And Anthony Russo Are Likely Candidates To Replace Joss Whedon For Avengers: Infinity War

17 November 2014 9:36 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since Joe and Anthony Russo took control of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for Marvel with aplomb, the directing duo have become hot favorites to take Joss Whedon’s place once the filmmaker steps down after next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. As such, this would put the Russo brothers in the director’s chair (or chairs) for the studio’s much-anticipated ensemble piece, Avengers: Infinity War.

That’s according to a report published by Deadline, who recently revealed that Rush‘s Daniel Bruhl has signed on to star in the pair’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Here’s what the outlet had to share on the matter.

“The Russo are building up their Marvel cred with this all-star outing, and I keep hearing they will step up to the ultimate Marvel all-star team and take the reins of The Avengers franchise from Joss Whedon, possibly with that »

10 Problems With The Avengers No One Wants To Admit

17 November 2014 9:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

The Avengers is a critically acclaimed and financial masterpiece by most accounts, leaving many to feel that it is a flawless piece of cinema. It is the third highest grossing film of all time (without adjusting for inflation) and is part of the ever expanding McU. It has received unparalleled levels of success in the comic book movie genre, and it is responsible for Hollywood’s sudden infatuation with shared universes.

The star studded cast of Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and countless others seemed to ensure that the film would be immaculate and nearly perfect.

This is not quite the case. There are many issues which are not evident on the first viewing, but the more you watch it, the more you realise that there are a plethora of plot holes, poor plot choices or simply a lack of character development. »
