Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f**kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f**king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They're not fans -- they're parasitical lowlifes and f**king wankers. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, though no word on whether they'll return to direct the sequel which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date. Deadline Bruce Greenwood joins Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett in Truth for writer/director James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) telling the story of »

This led to Sony entering the female fray with a Spider-Man spinoff scripted by Lisa Joy ("Burn Notice," "Pushing Daisies"). No confirmation yet if it's Spider-Woman, but it's a significant development. And this week industry leader Marvel, with plenty of female superheroes to choose from, finally announced its own own female counter-attack by turning the spotlight on Captain Marvel, aka Major Carol Danvers (coming July 6, 2018). Who will Marvel cast as its first leading female superhero? Let the best action actress win. We still don't know the fate of a Marvel feature starring Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow (Nicole Perlman, who plucked "Guardians of the Galaxy" out of Marvel's bin of second tier comics, turned in a treatment in 2011). Fan pressure has been mounting ever since Black Widow become an important fixture of The Avengers. She's busting to break out on her own. The timing couldn't be better and »

The late, legendary creator's name has been included in a series of titles this week after the publisher settled out of court with Kirby's heirs.
All-New X-Men #33, Fantastic Four #12, Inhuman #7 and Wolverine and the X-Men #11 feature the credit "Created By Stan Lee and Jack Kirby", with Death of Wolverine: Deadpool & Captain America #1 featuring "Captain America Created By Joe Simon and Jack Kirby" (via Robot 6).
The details of the settlement of the long legal battle between Kirby's family and Marvel over the many characters he helped create have not been revealed publicly.
Their joint statement simply read: "Marvel and the family of Jack Kirby have amicably resolved their legal disputes, and are looking forward to advancing their shared goal of honouring Mr Kirby's significant role in Marvel's history."
Marvel Studios was previously criticised for ignoring Kirby's contributions, but eventually »
As if there wasn't enough hype about Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron, here comes Pee-wee Herman. Jimmy Fallon had Paul Reubens, 62, reprise his iconic '80s character on The Tonight Show in an segment that aired on Wednesday's episode, for a very important mission—redubbing part of the trailer of the anticipated 2015 superhero film, the sequel to the 2012 movie The Avengers. Fallon has done impressions of Pee-wee in the past for his own mock movie dubs on his former talk show, Late Night. Thanks to Reubens, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) have never sounded »

Marvel finally announced that a Captain Marvel movie will be coming, marking the first time a woman has been the title character in the Marvel cineverse. With a release date set for July 6th, 2018, it and Inhumans will be released in between The Avengers: Infinity War two part saga.
Kevin Feige has already informed us that Captain Marvel will be about the character Carol Danvers. This gives us some idea of who they might be looking to cast. In the comics, Danvers is blond and 5' 11". I couldn't find a specific age, or even age range, but old enough to be a high ranking officer in the United States Air Force.
Danvers gets a fusion of alien Kree genes and powers from an alien male named Captain Marvel. Danvers, now imbued with powers like superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, and physical durability, takes the name Captain Marvel. »

Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo.s acting prowess has been criticized by crime writer, James Ellroy - but fans of The Avengers need not worry about the author slamming their favorite superhero movie. Instead the writer actually takes issue with their performances in David Fincher.s 2007 crime drama, Zodiac. As it turns out, Ellroy really hated the lead actors in that film Ruffalo and Downey Jr. played Inspector Dave Toschi and Paul Avery, respectively, in the delightfully meandering-yet-engrossing examination of the crimes of the Zodiac killer. And while James Ellroy has greatly supported the film in the past, having provided a commentary track on the DVD release and called it "one of the half-dozen greatest American crime films," it turns out that he really didn't care for the performances by Ruffalo, Downey Jr., or Jake Gyllenhaal (who played puzzle-loving cartoonist Robert Graysmith). Recently doing an interview with NPR, the »
According to a new report from Comicbookmovie.com and their sources "Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron" producer ,Kevin Feige, hinted at some new, important details that we can expect to see towards the end of the new flick. It turns out that we'll see the emergence of new team members, leading into the 3rd installment of the franchise. Some of these new team members will include: Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and The Vision. Kevin told Buzzfeed: "The Avengers films, ideally, in the grand plan are always big, giant linchpins. It’s like as it was in publishing, when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event. Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was. I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, because the Avengers roster is »
On October 28, 2014, during a special event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed the films that will make up Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU). These titles feature a mix of fan-favorite characters and several heroes who will be making their big-screen debuts.
The next two films scheduled to be released by Marvel Studios are Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015) and Ant-Man (July 17, 2015). These two films conclude Phase 2 of the McU, which also included Iron Man 3 (2013), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
Marvel also revealed the dates and titles of nine additional films through 2019 that would make up Phase 3 of the McU, including upcoming Captain America, Thor, Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy installments, »

According to Deadline, Legendary Pictures have turned to Flight writer John Gatins to pen the next draft of Skull Island. The movie is set to be released on November 4th, 2016 (the same date as Doctor Strange, so Legendary may want to consider moving) and Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing. The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World star Tom Hiddleston meanwhile is attached to take on a leading role. The script was originally written by Max Borenstein (Godzilla), but Gatins is an Academy Award winning writer, so the project is clearly in good hands. What do you guys think? »
Didn.t anybody check for cell phones or small cameras at the Marvel event held in downtown Hollywood earlier this week? First, the trailer that the studio cut together to show off Thanos and tease the Avengers: Infinity War reached the Web. And now this exclusive scene between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has surfaced . albeit in grainy form. Feel the Civil War tension below: Chopping wood. Such a manly metaphor. So, where to begin all of the analysis? My first obvious question tied to this footage would be where are Cap and Iron Man having this tete-a-tete. and when in the timeline of the Avengers: Age of Ultron story does it take place? The super duo is discussing a confrontation that The Avengers had with Elizabeth Olsen.s Scarlet Witch. And based on their comments, the mental master made quick work of them, pulling »
Hiddleston, who charmed Marvel movie lovers as the villainous Loki in "The Avengers" and "Thor," will star in AMC's "The Night Manager," alongside fellow Brit Hugh Laurie. The twisty plot description, per The Hollywood Reporter:
Night Manager follows Jonathan Pine, a British soldier turned luxurious hotel night auditor. Pine crosses paths with a French-Arab woman named Sophie with ties to Richard Onslow Roper, an English black marketeer who specializes in weapons. The woman provides Pine with incriminating documents, which he forwards to a friend in British intelligence. After Sophie winds up dead, Pine works with intelligence operatives and goes undercover as part of a sting against Roper to avenge Sophie's death.
While Laurie is well-known to American TV audiences thanks to his titular starring role on long-running Fox series "House, »

One tidbit that cut through the white noise of Tuesday’s colossal Marvel event was the fact that Captain America 3 — now given the rather apt title, Captain America: Civil War — would instigate the third phase in the company’s shared cinematic universe. As such, the upcoming threequel quickly became one of the most important films on Marvel’s grand slate.
We already know that Steve Rogers and Tony Stark don’t meet eye to eye at the best of times, but in this leaked clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the pair have a rather snappy exchange of words whilst hiding from the titular villain — one which points towards the game-changing conflict that stems from the global Superhuman Registration Act.
That’s not all the information lurking within this clip, though, as Cap references the Maximoff Twins — aka Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver — who are, at this point in the film, »

Though they're known as Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the titular heroes of The Avengers spent most of the first movie in the United States. And notably all of it was shot there. (Yes, even the Germany and India segments.) But after making $1.5 billion dollars worldwide, it seems only fair to share The Avengers with the wider world and its gorgeous locations. According to helmer Joss Whedon, the globe trotting of this production will only enhance the narrative of this superhero ensemble. In an appearance on the Marvel webseries The Watcher (via Coming Soon), Avengers: Age of Ultron writer-director Joss Whedon opened up about the locations of this hotly anticipated sequel, and what he hopes they'll achieve: "We wanted the world perspective on The Avengers.[We shot] up in the Italian Alps. We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England." Never »
After two-plus glorious minutes of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer, the first clip for the hotly anticipated film debuted last night during an episode of Agents of Shield. Marvel initially planned on premiering the trailer during the broadcast.; however, somebody beat them to the punch leaking it online days prior. Watch the clip below.
Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. 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 stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the »
Many fans are still coming down from yesterday's onslaught of Marvel announcements, including the nine movies in Phase Three and the extended trailer from the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today, director Joss Whedon offered a few new details about his Phase Two sequel.
We already knew that the film was shot in several different locations all throughout Europe, but the director also confirmed that they shot in Bangladesh.
"[We shot] up in the Italian Alps. We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England."
When asked if the movie will have more of a "global feel," the filmmaker hinted that these heroes have made plenty of enemies all over the world.
"Weirdly enough, the whole film takes place in Cleveland. No, this is a very global film. We wanted the world perspective on The Avengers, what they're doing, what they've been doing and who they are. »
In a recent appearance on Marvel's "The Watcher" webseries, and while he didn't give too much away about Avengers: Age of Ultron, he did confirm that shooting took place all over the world, including "the Italian Alps. We were in Seoul, Korea. We were in Johannesburg. We shot a little in Bangladesh. Then all over England." The most interesting comment comes a little later in the interview however, when Whedon adds: "This is a very global film. We wanted the world perspective on The Avengers. They're being The Avengers and that's a global thing and it doesn't make everybody love them, so we wanted to see both sides of that..." I'm not sure about you guys, but that sounds an awful lot like some Captain America: Civil War foreshadowing to me after Kevin Feige's hints that the Superhuman Registration Act will come as a result of the public »
Sony Classics has released a new poster for director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) awards hopeful Foxcatcher, which showcases stars Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street), Steve Carell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers)…
When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

“I hope fans always have their rumors and their hopes.” - Kevin Feige, Ocotber 28th, 2014
Welcome To Issue 69!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: Marvel announced all their Phase 3 films and I Can't Even.
“We wanted to do this at Comic Con this year, but things were not set.” is what Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said yesterday, kicking off the Q&A at the El Capitan theater in California after the studio released it’s complete Phase 3 lineup. What that says to me is that Marvel was willing to put up with the bullcrap people like myself were gearing to throw on them. Marvel had two of the biggest movies of the year, but somehow it still seemed they were in a foot race with Warner Bros and DC whose »
