Kingsman: The Secret Service, 2014.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn.
A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.
In Matthew Vaughn’s second adaptation of a Mark Millar comic, he has once again succeeded in making an ultra-silly, violent and hugely entertaining film. Starting with the death of his father, we see estate teen Eggsy heading on the wrong path in life until he calls on an old favour from a veteran agent (Firth). What ensues are a range of training montages, fight scenes, tons of laughs and a lisping Samuel L Jackson. It is a film nothing short of perfection.
The success of the film is due to the rapport between the cast and the wonderful direction from Vaughn and script from Jane Goldman. It feels as if »

Not long ago we posted some photo scans of some images from Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. We now have high resolution versions of those same images, and they definitely look a lot better. Some of the images feature scenes from the film, while others show Whedon directing his actors. I’m kind of sad that Whedon won't be back to direct the next couple of Avengers movies, but it’s exciting to know that we’ll get to see an original project from him in the near future.
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 ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to the Avengers to »

Joss Whedon has been in the news lately for accusing movie studios of sexist for lack of female superhero films. We know that he was working on a "Wonder Woman" movie at one point, and just revealed that before he accepted the task of bringing "The Avengers" to the big screen, he was set to direct a film similar to "The Dark Knight," but about a female Batman. He explained: "I was thinking about, well, if I wasn't going to do 'Avengers 2,' what would I want to do? Of course the first thing I thought of was turn-of-the-century female Batman. Not Batman actually. But, you know, something cool. One person. Can't stress that enough. Movie about one person - not a team, not 10, just one. But [I would] do a nice hard action movie that combined all my favorite things." Whedon recently said that he will not return for "Avengers: Infinity War, »

First of all, an apology. We’ve had some technical issues on Flickering Myth this week and lost a few days worth of posts, which we’ve been working on restoring. Unfortunately one of those was The Week in Spandex, and sadly there’s just not the time to rewrite the article. However, considering this week has brought us some big superhero news – including »

In case you were still wondering if there was a chance that we could see Joss Whedon come back to direct the Avengers: Infinity War films, don’t hold your breath. We’ve already heard several reports that Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: Civil War) will continue their Marvel cinematic journey to bring those two films to life. Now in an interview with Empire (vis: Cbm), Whedon confirms that he will not be coming back. Avengers: Age of Ultron will be his last Marvel film… for now. Here’s what he had to say:
“I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it'd be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life.”

Marvel withdrawal is making the short, dark winter days just that bit more grim – it's now been six months since Guardians of the Galaxy arrived to brighten up our summers, and three months feels like a long time still to wait for The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Digital Spy visited the set of Joss Whedon's sequel last summer, and spoke to the man himself along with Mark 'Hulk' Ruffalo, Chris 'Thor' Hemsworth, and new recruits Aaron 'Quicksilver' Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth 'Scarlet Witch' Olsen.
Below are 25 of the key things we learned from our day on set.
1. The Science Bros are causing trouble. "Banner's been living in Stark Tower, and [he and Tony] have been working side by side," Mark Ruffalo shares. "Banner has his own lab now, he's doing work that augments Tony's work, that could lead to a horrible experiment going wrong…"
2. Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye will have a »

I cannot recall a film that left me with such a sour taste in my mouth by its end. Does the movie deliberately defy itself with obnoxious intent? I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Firth
I’m “biast” (con): the trailer did not inspire hope
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
This is not an gentlemanly movie.
Now, most movies are not very gentlemanly, and this isn’t necessarily a problem — except, perhaps, to those of us who lament the passing of true gentlemanliness as a thing a dude might aspire to. But it’s a honking huge problem forKingsman: The Secret Service. Because this movie makes such a big deal about how gentlemanliness is a thing a dude must exude, certainly if he wants to become a member of the titular elite society of gentleman spies and »

While Captain America: The Winter Soldier had a big impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America: Civil War is possibly Marvel’s biggest movie yet, and easily just as significant as The Avengers and Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
With the third Avengers movie shifting focus to Infinity War, the whole Civil War storyline will obviously be crammed into just this one two hour release (a lot of fans thought Captain America 3 might just lead to Avengers: Civil War when Robert Downey Jr. was initially cast before the title reveal). However, the pressure is now on the studio to get it right.
In print, the arc sees Captain America and Iron Man go head to head over the Superhuman Registration Act after a tragic event caused by inexperienced heroes results in the death of hundreds of innocents. Cap’ believe superheroes deserve their freedom, while Stark considers registration »

Last summer, Digital Spy interviewed Joss Whedon on the set of The Avengers sequel. They didn't post the interview until a few days ago. In it, Whedon blames the lack of female-led superhero movies on "sexism" and "quiet misogyny." His comments stuck a nerve in the internet and they quickly went viral. With all of that attention being paid to comment he made many months ago, Whedon decided to clarify those comments. “I just thought, I sounded very harsh,” Whedon told Buzzfeed via a phone interview. "And then [Marvel announced], ‘We’re going to make Captain Marvel. We’re going to make Black Panther. We’re going to shake it up.’ I was just like, great! Now I just sound mean and bitter. But, you know, there’s a lot to be mean and bitter about.” Whedon has been a champion of female empowerment in the entertainment industry, but would he be »

If you're keen to savour as much footage of Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron prior to its release, then Marvel has put together a new TV promo spot to aid you in your quest. That said, there doesn't actually appear to be anything new in this one. But still: it's here if you want it.

"Trouble always comes around." The Avengers: Age of Ultron is only three months away, and considering the fact that the Super Bowl is right around the corner, we might get a glimpse of some new footage during the big game. But in the meantime, the Marvel Studios production has released the first TV spot for the comic book sequel, but this isn't meant to play during the Super Bowl. It's mostly footage we've already seen from the teaser trailer and the more recent second trailer, but there are some snippets of new action footage in there. It's certainly going to be brutal to see Bruce Banner and Tony Stark forced to fight. Here's the first TV spot for Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron from Marvel: Watch the most recent trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron right here. The Avengers: Age of Ultron is written & directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, »
