After his show-stealing turn in The Avengers, Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner / The Incredible Hulk is set to link up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes again next year as cameras roll on Joss Whedon's hotly-anticipated 2015 sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
However, with Ruffalo tied down to a six-movie deal - including the two aforementioned Avengers movies - it's surely only a matter of time before the Green Goliath gets another solo movie. There has been plenty of speculation that this could happen as part of Marvel's Phase Three, and according to Lou Ferrigno - who voices the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and of course portrayed him in the classic 70s TV series - that seems to be the plan.

7 Things You Don't Know About Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
It's been speculated and rumored for months now. Will Wonder Woman make an appearance in the Man of Steel follow-up Batman Vs. Superman? Warner Bros. made it official this morning, as director Zack Snyder announced Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Princess Diana of Themyscira.
Here is what he had to say.
"Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal Gadot an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal Gadot in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character."
Much like the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, this latest addition to the impending Superman sequel is causing quite a bit of controversy this morning, »
Tony Stark is invincible — at least when it comes to the numbers for Iron Man 3, that is. A whopping $174 million at the box office opening weekend. A staggering $409 million domestically. More than $1.2 billion grossed worldwide.
But the genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist character who’s appeared in five Marvel films so far was fallible in his third standalone feature, spending much of his post-Avengers time in his basement, designing prototype after prototype of his Iron Man suits to keep his mind off his near-death experience.
The most eye-popping one he built: The Mark 42 (below), which he can summon remotely in »

Here's a great piece of fan art that features the cast of How I Met Your Mother re-imagined as superheroes. The piece was created by conceptual illustrator Andy Park, who has worked on films such as Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers.
It features Alyson Hannigan's Lily Aldrin as Black Widow, Neil Patrick Harris' Barney Stinson as a Super laser tag player, Josh Radnor's Ted Mosby as Wolverine, Jason Segel's Marshall Eriksen as The Hulk, and Cobie Smulders' Robin Scherbatsky as Dazzler. »

Back in March, we reported on Mark Ruffalo’s desire for a Hulk standalone film, but how nothing was planned at that time. It seems however, that perhaps due to the success of Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World since, Marvel have reconsidered and Ruffalo will get his way after all.
In a recent interview for his upcoming film The Liberator, Lou Ferrigno talks about how he helped voice The Hulk in The Avengers, in combination with Ruffalo and some other voices. He then goes on to insist that The Hulk will be getting his own film in this dazzling era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is to be expected after Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Perhaps this news was not meant to reach our ears so prematurely, considering the journalist interviewing Ferrigno seems a little taken aback by his insistence. Does this mean that Marvel are becoming »

In an interview with Flicks And The City, Ferrigno, who helped voice the Hulk in "The Avengers," said that Ruffalo is "a great actor" and that Disney has already green-lit a spinoff for his scientist-turned-superhuman character.
"They are doing a Hulk movie, I think after the next 'Avengers,'" Ferrigno told the site.
Screen Rant notes that "Avengers" director Joss Whedon contradicted those claims earlier this year, but Marvel producer Kevin Feige has hinted that the studio would eventually like to see Ruffalo headline his own movie. Ruffalo, meanwhile, has also said he'd be happy to take the lead in a Hulk-centric film, but added that he wasn't aware of plans for any such movie.
As for Ferrigno, the actor said he wants more than a voice role if »

While Lou Ferrigno will forever hold a place in the annals of Marvel history for bringing the Hulk to life, he is far from a reputable source when it comes to the future of the character on the big screen. But, having voiced the big green guy in The Avengers and likely in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, he may know a little something. In a recent interview with Flicks and the City, Ferrigno claims to know that Mark Ruffalo and Hulk will be getting a solo adventure, sooner than we thought. »

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films as he assembles a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. Together they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. Coulson’s team consists of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), highly trained in combat and espionage, Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker); brilliant engineer and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) genius bio-chemist. Joining them on their journey into mystery is new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet). From Executive Producers Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”); Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot co-writers (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”); Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”); and Jeph Loeb (“Smallville”) comes Marvel’s first TV series. »
Following the positive response to the Incredible Hulk in The Avengers last year, speculation ensued surrounding another solo adventure for the Jade Giant. There were even credible rumors of Marvel Studios adapting the Planet Hulk storyline and leading into a World War Hulk Movie. But of course several Marvel guys have since smashed those rumors. So, we don't know exactly what's in store for Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and "the other guy" after assembling with The Avengers again in the 2015 Age of Ultron. Nonetheless, speaking with Flicks And The City recently, the original Hulk actor/bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno is pretty darn sure another solo movie is in the pipeline at Marvel: Lou Ferrigno most likely isn't in the know when it comes to Marvel's unannounced flicks, but the studio's president of production, Kevin Feige, did declare not too long ago that if there are plans for another Hulk movie, »

Before I saw “Frozen,” Disney’s altogether splendid new animated feature, I couldn’t remember the last time I’d emerged from such a movie actually humming the soundtrack. Forced to guess, I’d say it was 15 years ago with “Mulan,” a modest charmer whose catchy central number, “I’ll Make a Man Out of You,” has earned a permanent spot on my workout playlist. “Frozen” is an achievement of a different magnitude — a welcome throwback to the Mouse House musical tradition in which every tune and lyric is delivered with full-throated gusto and a glorious absence of irony. When the youthful queen Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) sings “Let It Go,” free at last to unleash the icy enchantments that have kept her locked up since childhood, the result is as thrilling an anthem of liberation as “Defying Gravity,” Menzel’s signature number from the stage tuner “Wicked.”

‘Catching Fire’ box office: To surpass Iron Man 3 in North America? (photo: Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) Thanksgiving was celebrated this past week in the United States. Although the American economy remains in a seemingly never-ending rut, Lionsgate has much to be thankful for, financially speaking: on the weekend of November 29-December 1, 2013, Francis Lawrence’s $110-130 million-budgeted The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, added another $74.5 million from 4,163 North American locations according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Even if Lionsgate’s estimates are (once again) off by a couple of percentage points, that’s a remarkable hold for a sequel. In fact, Catching Fire was down only 53% compared to its first weekend, which included $25+ million from Thursday night and Friday midnight screenings. And let’s not forget that the Hunger Games sequel blew off »

A new clip has been released from David O. Russell’s (Silver Lining’S Playbook) American Hustle, this time featuring quotes from the Bible (apparently!), business talk and Christian Bale sniffing Jennifer Lawrence’s nails…
Set in the seductive world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the United States, the film tells the story of brilliant con-man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale – The Dark Knight), who along with his equally cunning British partner and lover Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams – The Fighter) is forced to work for a wild, unhinged FBI agent Richie Dimaso (Bradley Cooper – Silver Lining’S Playbook). Dimaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner (Avengers Assemble) is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and police. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Lawrence – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire »

The world is much changed since Batman and Superman were created – so what qualities would define a 21st-century hero?
And so it begins. Those smart folks at Sony have worked out that it doesn't matter so much if every other Hollywood studio owns the rights to more superheroes on the big screen than you do – so long as you have the ingenuity to invent your own masked crimefighters to light up the multiplexes.
Earlier this week, the Japanese-owned company behind the Spider-Man films revealed that it is teaming up with Stan Lee, the nonagenarian comic book legend behind dozens of Marvel's best-known characters, to bring a new superhero to cinemas. Sony's Avi Arad, who produced all four Spidey outings, will take on the challenge of helping Lee transform the comic book movie landscape once again.
It all sounds rather exciting, even if Lee's contributions to the superhero pantheon in recent »

"I admire her so much. It (the criticism) doesn't faze her. I think it probably did initially. She said, 'Mom, I'm going to get this all my life. This is how they see me'," eonline.com quoted Danner as saying.
"I feel she's just extraordinarily accomplished in every area and people don't like that, some people don't like that, people who are bored and sit on their a**es. »

Now that she's finally confirmed in the role of the Scarlet Witch alongside Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson's Quicksilver, Elizabeth Olsen has spoken about joining the line-up of Earth's Mightiest Heroes for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron, revealing that we'll find a "psychologically damaged" and "messed up" Wanda Maximoff when the hotly-anticipated sequel arrives in 2015.
"I hung out with Mr. Whedon recently," Olsen tells MovieFone. "I'm really excited about this movie. I'm so excited about Scarlet Witch. I have had so much fun reading all about her and I am like learning new words that I had to look up on Wikipedia. I'm really enjoying it... I just love Scarlet Witch. I love her. It's so funny because I'm often talking about all these psychologically damaged people, but when you talk about Scarlet Witch... She is a messed up lady. She has got more shit to deal »

Strange Tales #178-181, Warlock #9-11, Avengers Annual #7 and Marvel Two-In-One Annual #2
Writer: Jim Starlin
Penciller: Jim Starlin
Finishers/Inkers: Steve Leialoha, Joseph Rubenstein, Jim Starlin, Alan Weiss and Al Milgrom
Colorists: Jim Starlin, Glynis Oliver Wein and Petra Goldberg
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Even before Jim Starlin had gotten his creative hands on Adam Warlock back in 1975, the character had already been a god as the messiah of Marvel’s Counter Earth. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and used by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane as a Christ allegory (crucified, dead and resurrected to rid a world of evil,) Warlock already carried a lot of baggage with him. In his first issue, Strange Tales #178, Starlin rapidly recaps Warlock’s history before entangling the character in a tale of fate, destiny, death and religion. A Vietnam veteran, Starlin was obviously working out a lot of issues about culture and religion »

Further to our first report August 2013, Marvel Studios have finally confirmed actress Elizabeth Olsen ("Godzilla") as Marvel Comics' mutant the 'Scarlet Witch', in writer/director Joss Whedon's currently prepping 3D sequel, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron".
"I'm feeling really excited about Scarlet Witch because she's really complicated," said Olsen.
As Sneak Peek first reported May 2012 about the Scarlet Witch appearing in "The Avengers 2", the character and her brother 'Quicksilver' were part of the 'second generation' of Marvel's "The Avengers" comic book team. »
