How Mark Ruffalo Hulked Out on a Preschooler

6 hours ago | 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, »

Chris Hemsworth Is 'People' Magazine's 2014 Sexiest Man Alive

19 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

People magazine has crowned their 2014 Sexiest Man Alive!

It was decided that People's Sexiest Man Alive this year is Chris Hemsworth!


Photos: Hollywood's Sexiest Shirtless Men

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. »

22 movie characters who should be couples

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

At the European press conference for Interstellar earlier this month, Sir Michael Caine named 'Sandy Bullock in Gravity' as his favourite sci-fi character. This connected Matthew McConaughey's Cooper with Bullock's Ryan Stone in our minds and got us thinking… Wouldn't they make a great couple (if they could get the space suits off long enough to snog)?

So join us as we go further down this rabbit hole, and pitch more movie characters who should probably swipe right on Tinder and get into each other's pants the first opportunity they get.

1. Cooper (Interstellar) & Ryan Stone (Gravity)

Why They're A Good Match: They're both space-exploring adventurers who've beaten some pretty big odds in their time. They've both had the opportunity to gaze in wonderment at the stars – now let's set them up on a date so they can remember that we're all made of stars and they should be gawking at each other instead. »

Daniel Bruhl To Play Villain In ‘Captain America: Civil War’

14 November 2014 1:24 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Daniel Bruhl is set to play the villain role in the next Captain America: Civil War, the one that will also bring Robert Downey Jr. and his Iron Man character as central to the conflict of the new film. The third installment, to be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, brings back Chris Evans and marks the debut of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, and Sebastian Stan, who’s back as The Winter Soldier and Anthony Mackie back as The Falcon. Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson are also expected to take part. I have to say I’m disappointed with Marvel Studios, which took my inquiry as reason to rush up a press release on the inhouse website. I guess they’ve decided to leave virtues like honesty to the Marvel characters. So short sighted.

Universal Monsters Will Not Be a Horror Movie Franchise

14 November 2014 1:17 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After revealing that at least 3 more Fast & Furious movies are being planned, Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley turned her attention to the upcoming Universal Monsters Shared Universe franchise that will kick off with the Untitled Mummy Reboot in 2016 after being teased in this past October's Dracula Untold. And guess what? She claims that this impending slate of films, which is set to also include the Wolf Man, Frankenstein, The Creature from the Black Lagoon and the ensemble Marvel's The Avengers-style Van Helsing, is not actually part of the horror genre.

Taking a cue from the earlier Mummy franchise reboot starring Brendan Fraser, which debuted in the late 90s, these upcoming Universal Monster movies will be in the action-adventure genre. Here's how she explains it:

"We don't have any capes [in our film library]. But what we do have is an incredible legacy and history with the monster characters. We've tried over the years »

New Report Indicates That Joe And Anthony Russo Will Helm Avengers: Infinity War

14 November 2014 1:05 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A lot of sites are trying to get into the scoop game, and while some are more reliable than others, the trades remain the most reliable source of information before we get an official press release. A little while ago, it was mentioned that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo were in talks to possibly helm the third Avengers movie (this was before it the two-part Avengers: Infinity War was announced). This information came from the same site that said James Gunn had landed the job, so it was taken with a pinch of salt. However, Deadline have now weighed in on the matter and reveal that, "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, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Will Not Set Up 'Avengers 3'

14 November 2014 7:41 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many have wondered how Marvel is going to slide their Guardians of the Galaxy franchise in with the rest of the cinematic universe. And while the cosmic side of this world will expand with Captain Marvel and Inhumans, both arriving in 2018, we don't yet have an explanation as to how Star-Lord and his pals are going to first meet Marvel's The Avengers. With the announcement of Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, which will close out the Phase 3 slate and include the big bad villain Thanos, many believe that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will set up and introduce this particular story line. Continuing to promote the release of Guardians of the Galaxy on Blu-ray and DVD this December, director James Gunn says this isn't true at all.

Speaking with MTV, Gunn explains that his franchise is able to stand on its own, and is not reliant on »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Earth's Mightiest Heroes Trailer Mashup

13 November 2014 4:24 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We won’t get to see Ant-Man or Wasp palling around with The Avengers until, at the earliest, Phase 3 of Marvel’s cinematic universe. However, in this mashup trailer cut together by Smart Aleck Comedy, which uses footage from the much missed animated series The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the sound from the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, we get to see both characters getting in the mix of battle. Wasp was actually supposed to be in Joss Whedon’s first Avengers film, making it far enough into the scripting process to be included in early animatic sequences made for the movie. Alas, she was ultimately cut from the script. Well, we can look forward to seeing Paul Rudd as Ant-Man and (almost certainly) seeing Evangeline Lilly as Wasp soon enough.
