Daredevil Actor Vincent D’Onofrio On Why We Won’t See Kingpin In The McU Any Time Soon

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

Ever since Marvel announced that they’d be producing a series of Netflix TV shows that would be set in the same universe as their big screen adventures, fans have wondered when we’d see some kind of crossover. Many assumed that Avengers: Infinity War would be the movie that’d unite Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the street-level vigilantes seen on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, but alas, that wasn’t to be – and it’s actually looking more and more unlikely that it’s going to happen in the foreseeable future.

Wilson “Kingpin” Fisk, in particular, is a character that fans would love to see go up against the likes of Spider-Man and Captain America in the McU. Unfortunately, though, it just doesn’t seem that something like that will ever come to fruition. Actor Vincent D’Onofrio recently confirmed that we’d be seeing »

Kingpin Won’t Likely Pop Up In A Marvel Movie Anytime Soon, Says Vincent D’Onofrio

17 hours ago | | See recent LRM Online news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that started off with the greatest of ambitions: to create a living breathing world where superheroes could cross over into each others’ respective franchises. For the longest time, it seemed as though this world would be restricted to the big screen. However, with Coulson’s death in the first Avengers, and the subsequent creation of the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., things opened up pretty quickly.

Then Marvel shifted their focus to Netflix, creating a series of shows that take place at more of a street level. Set after the events of the first Avengers, these series would also be set in the same universe. However, as time has gone on, it’s become more and more clear that there is very little chance the TV world and the film world will cross over in any meaningful way. Sure, the Netflix shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. »

Marvel’S The Defenders: Showrunner On Uniting The Four With A “Street-Level Crisis” (Photos)

13 January 2017 2:40 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

It’s no easy feat seeing several characters from their own respective series cross over in a rewarding and meaningful way. Director Joss Whedon may have made the entire thing look easy when he released The Avengers back in 2012, but between the conflicting personalities, seemingly-contradictory superpowers, and clashes in movie styles, there was a lot that could have gone wrong there.

This year, Marvel Television is set to accomplish the same mammoth task when they cross over four of their street-level superheroes in The Defenders. The Defenders will serve as a continuation of the story of our New York-based supers Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron First — all of whom will have received at least one season of television by the time The Defenders hits the streaming service. As expected, this is a plan that’s set to have just as many difficulties as The Avengers did, as revealed by showrunner Marco Ramirez, »

Early Doctor Strange concept art shows an alternate look for the Marvel superhero

13 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios concept artist Andy Park (whose previous credits include Thor, The Avengers and Ant-Man) has taken to Twitter to reveal his early illustration of the Sorcerer Supreme for Doctor Strange. The exact date of the drawing is unknown, but star Benedict Cumberbatch most likely wasn’t attached yet, as the figure in the image the doesn’t bear any resemblance to the actor. Check out an alternate costume design for the superhero below…

The tweet the picture was attached to read: “Here’s an early #DoctorStrange concept design illustration I did for the film #conceptart #costume #design #marvelstudios #marvel.”

The concept art comes about a week after a sketch of Ryan Gosling as the character was revealed, reminding us all that not all actors wear the costume as well as Cumberbatch.

Infinity War and Avengers 4 Have a Combined Budget of $500M

10 January 2017 10:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The world is pretty high on Marvel right now. Not to say that is a strange thing at this point, but Phase 3 is off to a really great start thanks to Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. There are still quite a few movies to come, but as Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 gear up for production, fans can't help but get excited for the prospect of what's on the way. It is impossible to know if the movies will be good, but at the very least, Marvel Studios is willing to put up a ton of money to help make sure they are.

According to a report by The Telegraph, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, which will be shooting back-to-back, are going to have a budget of nearly $500 million. The very intensive shoot is expected to last about six-months and will be filming in various locations around Scotland »

Liv Tyler to Return as Betty Ross In Avengers: Infinity War?

9 January 2017 11:02 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving through Phase 3 at a brisk pace so far, and most would probably say the results have been pretty great. Still, even though there are a ton of movies to look forward to before Phase 3 comes to a close, anticipation for Avengers: Infinity War is already building in a big way. The movie is scheduled to start filming soon and it looks like we may be seeing some unexpected faces returning to the McU. Namely, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross.

A recent report from The Daily Record claims that Avengers: Infinity War will be shooting next month in the Scottish cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. The site noted that there will be "big screen superstars" on hand for the shoot, which includes the usual suspects such as Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson. But the report did have an interesting bit in that Liv Tyler, »

Brief Teaser For Marvel’s New Spider-Man Series Confirms Summer Premiere

6 January 2017 6:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Coming to a close this week is Ultimate Spider-Man, which will air its final episode tomorrow, January 7th. Marvel is pulling the plug on the show to instead focus on a new effort. We don’t know too much about it just yet, but the company is planning a new animated series for Disney Xd, and as the teaser above confirms, it’ll arrive in the summer.

At only 10 seconds long, not much else is revealed in this awfully brief tease, but the confirmation of a release window is certainly exciting and nicely ties the new show in with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which swings into theaters on July 7th and stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Keaton, among others.

From what we’ve heard, Marvel’s Spider-Man, as it’s being called for now, will follow a young Peter Parker, one who’s still going through his teenage years, »

The Most Memorable and Outrageous Golden Globe Moments Over the Years

6 January 2017 5:42 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While the Golden Globe Awards are honoring greatness in film and television, Et is highlighting the most outrageous moments to have taken place at the awards show.

Most Outrageous Moment by a Presenter: Jeremy Renner

In 2015, The Avengers star couldn't help but comment on fellow presenter, Jennifer Lopez's, cleavage while announcing Billy Bob Thornton as the winner in the category for Best Performance by an Actor in a Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

After politely asking J. Lo to open the envelope, the singer admitted that she would be the best one to break through the seal since she's "got the nails," to which Renner quipped, "You got the globes, too."

5 January 2017 1:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel has released a new synopsis for the upcoming sequel Thor: Ragnarok, giving fans a better idea of the film’s story while also confirming a rematch between Thor and Hulk after their battle from 2012’s The Avengers. Check out the synopsis below, along with a behind-the-scenes image featuring Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder alongside director Taika Waititi

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.

Disney also recently confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as the Sorcerer Supreme, »

Jeremy Renner would “love to do” a Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie, but no discussions are happening

4 January 2017 10:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Even after 14 films, there are still several superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that haven’t been nearly as fleshed out as Iron Man, Captain America and several others, despite being around for about as long.

Two of these characters include Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. While there have been campaigns aplenty to get Black Widow her own solo film, and it seems as if it might finally happen in Phase Four of the McU, Hawkeye hasn’t received nearly as much attention. Although in Renner’s mind, a Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie makes perfect sense and he’d totally be game for making one.

While speaking to British newspaper Metro (via Edmonton Sun), the actor touched on this topic, saying: “I always thought it would make sense early on to do a Hawkeye/Widow movie because they’re quite »

From great dramas to fun comedies, sci-fi sequels to superhero action, the last half of 2017 has something for everyone! Here’s part two of our most anticipated movies: July: Dunkirk We confess we have a soft spot for war movies. Something about the epic scale of nations at conflict coupled with the small human dramas of interaction under extreme circumstances equals sheer watchability.

Prometheus: is David the franchise's hidden protagonist?

Ryan Lambie Jan 4, 2017

Does Prometheus make more sense if it's viewed as David the android's story? And where does it leave Alien: Covenant? Here's one theory...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Prometheus and speculation about this year's Alien: Covenant.

One of the best bits in 2012's Prometheus was one of the quietest: an early sequence where Michael Fassbender's android, David, pads around a deserted ship, alternately watching Lawrence Of Arabia, styling his hair after Peter O'Toole and watching over the slumbering humans in their cryo chambers.

How Disney Dominated The Top Ten Movies of 2016

2 January 2017 7:36 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

2016 was a record breaking year for Disney which earned over $7 billion dollars in worldwide box office ticket sales.  Disney had blockbuster movies like Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and the number 1 movie of the year Finding Dory that helped it be the number one movie production company in the world.  While there is currently one movie in the top ten that is in theaters right now it is safe that its spot won't change now.  The overall consensus looking at the top ten from 2016 is children movies and comic book movies reign supreme.  Even comic book films that were critically trashed by a majority did significantly well at the box office.  Here is a look at the top ten films gross domestic  for 2016.

10. Doctor Strange: Domestic $229,697,310

Disney/Marvel's first movie on the top 10 list. Overall this was a success for the Marvel Studios to finish tenth. »
