Why a Break From the Public Eye Is Exactly What Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston's Relationship Needed

16 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Was it just our wildest dreams, or did we go through a few weeks filled with a lot of Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift? It all started on the afternoon of June 15 when crystal clear photos surfaced of the "Shake It Off" singer and The Avengers star kissing on a rocky beach in Rhode Island. Days later, the duo danced the night away at Selena Gomez's Nashville concert. Dinner dates, meetings with the parents and matching outfits soon followed leaving some Swifties thinking this was the greatest "Love Story" ever told. Others, however, became a bit more skeptical. "I know. It's only been three weeks. And she's 26. That's old enough to understand—like, you don't »

John Krasinski Reflects On His Failed Captain America: The First Avenger Audition

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It feels strange to think back on this now given how far superhero movies have come, but there was a time when the casting of characters like Captain America and Thor was taking the internet by storm. The announcement that Fantastic Four‘s Chris Evans would star in Captain America: The First Avenger came as a huge surprise, especially given the shortlist which had been doing the rounds.

Included on that list was The Office‘s John Krasinski, someone who pretty much no one was able to picture in the role at the time. Since then, he’s obviously showed his action star credentials in the 13 Hours and the upcoming Jack Ryan TV series, and the actor has now opened up for the first time about how close he came to playing the Star Spangled Avenger.

“It was a big deal for me, because first of all I love those Marvel movies. »

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

23 August 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

No More Mutants!

   This week I wanted to read an event series Marvel made in 2005, The House of M. I’d referenced the story a couple weeks back when I spoke of the anniversary of the Fantastic Four but wanted to give the story itself some time in the spotlight.

   While you’re getting a good story here, it has its flaws. One theme I find common in Brian Bendis’s work is during event stories like this, he has an antagonist that is barely in the story. In Age of Ultron for example, the title implies you have a villain who the protagonists will do their best to fight off when in fact the story itself deals with an alternate timeline where the heroes react to actions the villain has already committed.

   In this story, The X-Men and The Avengers decide they have to do something about the insanity of Scarlet Witch. »

Jeph Loeb Teases An Edgier And Grittier Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. In Season 4

22 August 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stumbled out of the gate (despite having a pilot directed by The Avengers helmer Joss Whedon), and while it’s since found its footing, the show has never managed to get back to the sort of ratings it debuted with. However, with a new later timeslot this Fall, it sounds like the series could be about to undergo something of a tonal shift.

Will that bring more eyes to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? It’s hard to say, but with Ghost Rider set to appear in season four, fans definitely have at least a couple of new reasons to revisit the show. Talking in the video above, Marvel Television boss Jeph Loeb actually sheds some light on why it airing at 10pm could bring things more in line with the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

Loki's locks are back. Tom Hiddleston has once again slipped into character as Thor and The Avengers' scheming nemesis, showing up with costar Chris Hemsworth on the set on Thor: Ragnarok in Brisbane, Australia, as he sported the God of Mischief's trademark long, oily 'do. Hiddleston, 35, donned the wig - and a sleek black ensemble - as he literally suited up for the role on Monday for the shoot. Meanwhile, Hemsworth, 33, worked a hoodie and jeans, himself flashing Thor's long blond tresses, pulled back into the character's trademark disheveled ponytail.

McU: More Of Black Widow's Troubling Backstory Comes To Light, And Activists Need To Pipe Down

22 August 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In the six years since Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, was first introduced to us in 2010, her character has become one of the more fascinating people in the McU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Thanks to her magnetic performances, and strong, subtle writing, Black Widow's backstory is simultaneously mysterious and emotionally relevant to where we find her these days.

As it turns out, there was going to be a little more revealed about her in Captain America: Civil War, but it ended up not making it into the film. 

A scene from the junior novelization of the Marvel epic that took the world by storm earlier this year reveals one extremely troubling event from Romanoff's past. Here's an excerpt from the scene in question:

Natasha studied Cap's expression of resolve. Finally, she said, "In Russia, in the Red Room, there were dozens of us. All girls, all young. We lived together. »

Thor And Loki Visit A Familiar City In New Thor: Ragnarok Set Photos

22 August 2016 7:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

New York City.

Not only is it one of the most important cities in our world, but it's also probably the most important city in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it's most famous for being the setting of the climactic final battle in The Avengers, the city has also factored into The Incredible HulkCaptain America: The First Avenger, it'll loom large in this fall's Doctor Strange, next summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it's also the backdrop for everything we've seen so far in Marvel's Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones

And now...

We know that next fall's Thor: Ragnarok will find its titular hero and his trickster brother popping in on the Big Apple for a bit.

Director Taika Waititi and his Thor: Ragnarok production are currently filming in Brisbane, Australia, using that city as a stand-in for New York. He and star Chris Hemsworth had some fun with photos »

Avengers: Infinity War And Its Sequel Will Mark An End And New Beginning For The McU

19 August 2016 7:35 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While the fourth Avengers movie may not have a title, it's pretty obvious that that and Avengers: Infinity War are going to have huge ramifications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite the fact that Thanos wasn't teased until The Avengers in 2012, we've known for a while that the end of Phase 3 is going to wrap up the era which began with Iron Man in 2008, especially with the current contracts of many actors (including Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Chris Hemsworth) all nearing their end.    Talking to IGN recently, Anthony Russo explained why these movies are going to mark both a natural ending and new beginning for the McU as we know it. "I can't get into too much detail about who we're introducing, but these two movies are intended to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the McU since the very first Iron Man movie.

Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon should definitely pick up the 'Animated Adventures of Firefly'

17 August 2016 5:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joss Whedon's Firefly was gone long before its time but you can't take the sky away from its fans. One very talented artist has created a sneak peek at what an animated series of the beloved sci-fi series could look like. And it's oh, so shiny. Stephen Byrne has been making outrageously good fan art for years now. Previously he did an illustration of the Firefly cast that Whedon responded to saying, "There’s art, then there’s Great Art." He's also done a fun Saturday-morning-cartoon style Doctor Who animation and mashed-up the Whedon-worlds of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Avengers. But he's back to the rag-tag crew this time. Check out the "teaser trailer" for the Animated Adventures of Firefly. It's under a minute long but it's so good! Oddly enough, a Firefly animated adventure was seriously talked about at one point.

Marvel's Runaways Movie Is Now a Hulu Series

17 August 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For years, Marvel has been teasing a Runaways movie. In fact, it was originally planned for Phase 1, but it kept getting bumped by better known superheroes such as Captain America and Thor. It was indefinitely delayed because Marvel decided to move forward on The Avengers instead. It was never subsequently announced that Runaways would be part of Phase 2 or Phase 3, though Marvel boss Kevin Feige refused to say the project was dead. While some speculated that it would be announced as a Marvel Phase 4 movie, turns out the studio had different plans altogether.

Marvel's Runaways is now officially going to be a TV show instead of a movie. Specifically, it will become a Hulu series, bypassing Netflix. It's not yet clear what this means for the McU and its inter-connective tissue. It's been teased for a while now that the Marvel TV shows and the movies are not really meant to crossover. »

Marvel Reconfigures ‘Runaways’ As Hulu Series

While Marvel has been pretty orderly about their cinematic universe early on, at least one movie fell through the cracks: “Runaways.” The project was one that Joss Whedon was once in the running for prior to landing “The Avengers,” and for a good amount of time, Peter Sollett (“Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” “Raising Victor Vargas”) […]

Though Joss Whedon’s sci-fi series “Firefly” was cancelled after one season almost 14 years ago, its cult fandom rages on well into this decade.

Case in point: Artist and fan Stephen Byrne recently created a short animated tribute to the series entitled “The Animated Adventures of Firefly Teaser,” featuring the entire Serenity crew. It’s garnered over 250,000 views and earned the seal of approval from star Nathan Fillion. Watch the teaser below, as well as a production diary created two years prior.

Robert Downey Jr. Returning as Tony Stark in Doctor Strange?

15 August 2016 5:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The release of Marvel Studios latest movie Doctor Strange is creeping up very fast, and with that, we will be getting a lot of new information in the coming weeks. We already know a lot about the plot of the movie as well as the cast, but one thing of note is that, as of right now, it is pretty much absent of any familiar faces. However, a new rumor that has surfaced suggests that at least one familiar McU face may be joining Stephen Strange, albeit briefly, for his first cinematic adventure.

A recent post to The Angry Ginger Twitter account suggests that none other than Tony Stark may be featured in Doctor Strange, though only in a cameo role. The Angry Ginger is a podcaster and comic book writer as well as a "self-publisher," so this may not be the most solid rumor around. But it also doesn't seem like a crazy, »

Joss Whedon rumoured to direct Supergirl / The Flash musical crossover

13 August 2016 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not content with a big four-way crossover, The CW has announced that The Flash and Supergirl will be crossing paths once again this season for a special two-parter, which is set to feature a musical element.

The news was announced at The CW’s Television Critics Association panel, and is expected to occur around the 13th episode of the DC shows’ upcoming seasons, with former Glee co-stars Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist once again flexing their singing voices on screen.

Furthermore, The Hashtag Show is reporting that Joss Whedon (The Avengers) is being lined up to direct the episode, which will reportedly see the two heroes going up against the Batman: The Brave and the Bold villain the Music Meister, and that Neil Patrick Harris may reprise the role, having voiced the character in the animated series.

The report follows comments from Gustin at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con, »

Joss Whedon Rumored To Direct Upcoming Supergirl And The Flash Musical Crossover

12 August 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This December, we’re getting an epic four night crossover between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. However, it was at this week’s Television Critics Association press tour that The CW confirmed a special musical two-parter between Supergirl and The Flash.

It’s a unique idea, but one which makes perfect sense when you consider the fact that Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin starred alongside each other in Glee a few years back. Specific story details have been kept under wraps for now, but it sounds like an awful lot of fun, and just goes to show how confident the network is in its DC TV content to tackle such a crossover.

Who should take the helm of this musical meeting between the Girl of Steel and Fastest Man Alive, though? Well, according to That Hashtag Show, it will be Joss Whedon »
