Marvelous DA7E: Luke Cage, Black Panther And Planet Hulk Made My Con

13 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

That was San Deigo Comic Con, my friends, Sdcc 2016 passed us by like a whirlwind last weekend and for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Hall H panel that whirlwind came with unprecedented security to make sure none of that sweet, sweet video leaked out. Warner Bros, with the DC Comics stuff, they put everything online right away, Marvel...not so much.

We did luck out into some video from the Marvel Netflix panel, which decided to go balls out at a convention where not much was expected of them. It seemed reasonable that Luke Cage would get to suck up the spotlight, because we’re mere months away from the debut of his Netflix series, but basically rolling out teasers for the rest of the Netflix Phase 1 was very impressive.

First, though, Cage. Damn, this series looks hot and executive producer Cheo Coker really seems to get how important this is. »

These days, they've sadly been pushed aside by Marvel Comics due to their decision to focus on properties like The Avengers and Inhumans, but with decades worth of history behind them, there's no way the X-Men's legacy will ever be overlooked or forgotten. The team has featured literally hundreds of different members over the years and their adventures have resulted in the creation of some of the best villains ever seen within the »

With Marvel's Black Panther emerging as one of the most hotly anticipated films to come out of San Diego's Comic-Con, star Chadwick Boseman sat down with People to reveal what bringing the original black superhero to his first solo big screen adventure means to him, especially during the current racially charged mood in American society.

Black Widow, Star Wars or Terminator: what should Joss Whedon do next?

26 July 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Avengers director seems keen on a solo outing for Scarlett Johansson’s karate-kicking ex-Soviet agent. But other franchises need his originality more

Joss Whedon may not have created the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that wildly ambitious tangle of interweaving superhero movies, but he certainly gave it much of its vim and verve. Rather like the outlandish technology featured in the cult film-maker’s creepy Dollhouse TV show, in which brainwashed human beings are imprinted with off-the-shelf personalities for the entertainment of rich clients, Whedon took an existing property and upgraded it to the next level.

Box Office Meltdown: Hollywood Races to Win Back Summer Crowds

26 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From “Jaws” to “Jurassic Park,” few directors can rival Steven Spielberg in the blockbuster arena. But even Spielberg’s magic touch couldn’t save “The BFG” at the box office.

On paper, the film, a $140 million adaptation of a beloved children’s book with a script by “ET” writer Melissa Mathison, had all the makings of a hit. Instead, the movie collapsed at the multiplexes, eking out less than $20 million in its opening weekend.

It’s a stunning fall for one of cinema’s highest-flying talents — a director whose finger was affixed to the pulse of mainstream tastes for decades. Yet “The Bfg” is only the latest high-profile casualty in a summer that’s seen a slew of big-budget domestic bombs. Indeed, red ink has spilled out from such misses as “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Warcraft,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, »

Karl Urban Teases His Skurge Look in Thor: Ragnarok

25 July 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2016 certainly isn't anything like the old days of Marvel Studios. When they first started shooting Iron Man way back in 2007, they notoriously banned certain bloggers from sharing a single image from the set. Now, as Thor 3 continues production, it seems like we're getting some kind of update, photo or piece of viral footage everyday. We've seen leading man Chris Hemsworth joking around on set with director Taika Waititi. We've seen Mark Ruffalo showing off his larger-than-normal Hulk fists as he spends his time toiling away in motion capture Hell. And now today, we get a first look at star Karl Urban as he teases his new villainous Skurge look in Thor: Ragnarok.

The actor is heading to Queensland, Australia to shoot the movie. He shared the photo of his recently shaved head on Twitter. While he doesn't really provide any kind of update about what he'll be shooting first, »

Marvel/Feige: Original Avengers Aren't Being Phased Out, Talks McU's Future

25 July 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Something that Marvel Studios is continuously commended for is their ability to look at the big picture while simultaneously making sure that each chapter in their unfolding saga is of the right quality. We've watched other studios stumble out of the gate, where they announce or tease years worth of movies based on a beloved property, only to have a film come out that forces them to either change or scrap all of those plans.

Sony famously had to abandon their plans for a Cinematic Universe based on Spider-Man. Warner Bros. just recently completed putting a facelift on pretty much their entire DC Extended Universe after Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice caused a negative stir for the brand. 

The fact that Marvel has announced ambitious slates, often years in advance, and has been able to meet all of those promises (so far) is worthy of praise. Marvel honcho Kevin Feige »

Joss Whedon believes there's a big problem with Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 5:33 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Though Joss Whedon was instrumental in helping develop the unstoppable behemoth that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has never really felt destined for a lifetime of making big Hollywood movies. He has always seemed more at home as a behind-the-scenes creative type, a TV guru or a passionate auteur making adaptations like Much Ado About Nothing. His two big goes at the blockbuster game, The Avengers and... Read More »

Thor: Ragnarok Panel Brings First Look to Comic-Con

24 July 2016 5:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Whenever it is confirmed that Marvel Studios will have a Comic-Con panel, fans are often left to guess which movies the studio will showcase that particular year. This year, the studio returned after skipping the con last year, and we knew going on that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Doctor Strange would be part of the presentation. Since production had started just a few weeks ago in Australia, most weren't surprised when the cast of Thor: Ragnarok wasn't in attendance, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige didn't leave this movie out of the presentation, by confirming the new cast members and releasing the official logo.

Marvel also debuted an amusing skit put together by director Taika Waititi, which Kevin Feige teased was in response to the filmmaker's constant queries about why Thor doesn't appear in Captain America: Civil War. Various reports from the panel revealed that this video is »

Reviewing the Seven Biggest Comic-Con Trailers

24 July 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We all love movie trailers. Some of us get to the theater early so we can catch all the trailers. We review trailers. Studios even make trailers for trailers. (And we review those, too.) Trailers get people excited. That’s their job, if they’re done correctly. Comic-Con has unveiled a bunch of trailers over the past few days. Cinelinx is taking a second look at seven trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.

 Justice League: What’s immediately obvious from the trailer is that the tone of this film will be very different from the earlier Snyderverse films. When the WB opened the set to critics several weeks back, everyone present said that they were encouraged by the humorous scenes being filmed featuring the Flash. This trailer seems to back up those claims, focusing on the interactions of the team members. The thread of the trailer »

A never-before-seen Marvel universe screentest directed by Joss Whedon

24 July 2016 3:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joss Whedon was at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend and spoke about the idea of making a Black Widow solo film with Scarlett Johansson. As a fun bonus, a Marvel panel revealed a never-before-seen McU screentest he directed. While The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron were big hits at the box office, not everyone was a fan of where Whedon took Natasha's story in the sequel film. But if Marvel wanted him to lead her solo film (our own Donna Dickens suggests setting her up for a Bourne-like franchise), he'd be there. Speaking to IGN.com at Sdcc, the idea of Black Widow was broached once again: “Well if somebody pointed to me and said, ‘You want to make a Black Widow movie?’ the answer would be ‘Duh!’ For two reasons: I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound and so it’s the kind of »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Talks High School Setting; Tom Holland Dishes On His Peter Parker

24 July 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In hindsight, Marvel Studios’ presence at San Diego Comic-Con may not have heralded as much new footage as that of Warner Bros. – Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, King Arthur and even Justice League each enjoyed their time in the limelight – but after confirming Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and unveiling a fresh look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s good doctor, there’s still plenty for fans to chew over.

Speaking of which, many of the key players involved in Spider-Man: Homecoming were in attendance at the annual event, and IGN spoke to both Tom Holland and director Jon Watts about the finer details of Marvel’s 2017 reboot.

Joss Whedon Says He Would Return To Marvel Studios To Direct A Black Widow Movie

24 July 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

IGN caught up with Joss Whedon at Comic-Con yesterday, and they obviously had to ask The Avengers director about a possible return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he's currently working on something original, it definitely sounds like he'd be willing to reunite with Marvel Studios if they're willing to let him take a crack at that long rumoured and well overdue Black Widow solo movie. "I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound, so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like Thor or The Vision," Whedon said of his interest in the hero. "When you get into your ‘Superman’ territory it’s harder to maintain the gritty action that the Russo brothers do so brilliantly and she’s got that kind of thing and [you can] really do a spy thriller.

Brie Larson Confirmed As Captain Marvel

24 July 2016 1:18 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While Warner Bros. may have beaten them to the punch with Wonder Woman, Marvel Studios have their own female led super hero movie coming our way, and they’ve just gotten an Oscar winner to the the lead role. Rumoured for a while, but finally confirmed at Marvel Studio’s Comic-Con panel, Room’s Brie Larson will take on the role of Carol Danvers, known as Captain Marvel to the superhero set, an air force pilot with the super power of flight and enhanced strength. While she has been around since 1967, her importance in the comics has skyrocketed in the last few years (she is currently the lead in Marvel’s Civil War 2 mega event). Couple that with Larson being a mega star on the rise, and  Marvel Studios are obviously planning her 2019 solo film to be a big deal (she was originally set to appear at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

Thor 3 Gets a New Ragnarok Logo

23 July 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the official Comic-Con schedule was released a few weeks ago, there weren't many details about Marvel Studios' Hall H panel on Saturday. We already knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would be part of the festivities, thanks to social media updates from directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson, but nothing else about the panel was known. Part of the festivities included the reveal of a new logo for Thor: Ragnarok, along with a unique skit put together by director Takika Waititi and a sizzle reel.

The logo debuted on Twitter, but we're not sure if this unique skit and will make its way online quite yet. The video is presented as a mini documentary that shows how stressed out Thor has become, and he has moved to New Zealand to become roommates with a guy named Darryl. There are scenes where Thor is talking with Bruce Banner, »

King Kong Returns in Kong: Skull Island Trailer

23 July 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every studio in Hollywood is currently trying to put together some form of shared cinematic universe, but Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have one of the few in town that we actually we want to see. The studio is planning on making their giant monsters meet in future movies, and they already stated that process with Godzilla in 2014. Next up is reboot of King Kong, Kong: Skull Island, and we just got the very first trailer for the studio's next monster epic.

Warner Bros. premiered the footage at San Diego Comic-Con, which is currently taking place at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The studio decided to take a break from teasing their upcoming DC Comics superhero movies to deliver fans a first look of the latest attempt to bring King Kong to the big screen, and everything seems very promising.
