Quiz: All About Scarlett Johansson

21 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

She’s been turning heads on and off screen since her role in 2001’s Ghost World caught the attention of indie movie lovers everywhere.  And with her breakthrough role in Lost in TranslationScarlett Johansson jumped into mainstream consciousness and launched her career in the spotlight.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only seen a decade since Johansson wandered the streets of Tokyo with Bill Murray in Lost in Translation.  Since then, Johansson has chosen roles in everything from rom-coms to action flicks, became Woody Allen’s muse, and slipped into skin-tight leather and held her own with the men and mutants of The Avengers and its upcoming sequel.

Johansson’s latest on screen incarnation sees the actress as the titular Lucy, a woman who is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob in Taiwan.  When a massive quantity of the smuggled drugs inadvertently leak into her system, »

Kevin Feige Teases Possible Avengers / Guardians of the Galaxy Crossover

21 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Guardians of the Galaxy takes place literally worlds away from The Avengers, and yet both superhero teams occupy the same universe at the same time and even know some of the same people. It wouldn’t be totally inconceivable for them to cross paths at some point, and recent comments from Kevin Feige suggest they may […]

Will We Ever See A Planet Hulk Movie?

21 July 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

If there’s one thing that Marvel fans seem to be clamouring for right now, it’s a standalone Hulk movie featuring the likes of Mr. Mark Ruffalo, who took on the role of cursed scientist/superhero Dr. Bruce Banner in The Avengers, and has yet to be glimpsed in another Marvel Cinematic Universe venture since (well, unless you count that brief cameo at the end of Iron Man 3, that is, and we’re not going to).

There were several rumours circulating last year, of course, with regards to a “Planet Hulk” movie, which – based on a popular comic book – would see the big green transformation launched into space and facing off against a variety of creatures in an arena somewhere that wasn’t Earth. These rumours were shot down by Marvel Studios, who said that they didn’t have any plans to develop or release a Planet Hulk movie at that time. »

Feige Talks About Marvel's 'Hulk' Plans

21 July 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since The Avengers, there has been lots of buzz around The Incredible Hulk. Despite having two attempts at solo films- which both under-performed- it would appear that Joss Whedon's use of the character was what finally sparked the imagination of the masses. That, and Mark Ruffalo's strong portrayal of Bruce Banner. Since then, much has been made about what Marvel would like to do with the character's scene-stealing popularity. Our own El Mayimbe once exclusively reported on plans for a film based on the Planet Hulk books, and his claims were more or less verified when concept art for Thor: The Dark World was released that showed that- at one point- Marvel was toying with the idea. The art showed characters that first appeared in those books, like the Oldstrong and Kaifi.

But now, as has been said before, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is confirming that »

X-Men's David Hayter wants to revive Black Widow film

21 July 2014 1:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

David Hayter wants to revive his Black Widow project.

The actor/filmmaker - best known for voicing Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid video games - is keen to return to the shuttered Marvel Studios project.

"For Black Widow, I wrote [a script] ten years ago and I was attached to direct it then," he told Latino Review.

"Then a few female action movies came out and they didn't do very well. And the movie got shelved.

"It's on IMDb and I'm going to talk to Marvel about possibly re-igniting that project. It really depends on Marvel on what they want to do with that character.

"So that's the status of that right now. As far as I know, it's not a project that's happening yet. But I have written a script for it."

Hayter was a writer on X-Men, X2 and Watchmen.

He is also developing the script for an »

Book Giveaway – Win Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale

21 July 2014 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of the biography Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale – which is out on July 24th courtesy of Aurum Press – we have a copy of the book to give away to one lucky reader…

Joss Whedon is a male writer whose most famous creation is a girl-power icon; a geek who deals in classic themes of love, betrayal and redemption; and one of the first people in the entertainment industry to have harnessed the power of the internet to engage directly with his fans.

Amy Pascale became one of those fans when Buffy Summers enrolled at Sunnydale High in 1997. She has followed Whedon’s career ever since, marvelling at his ability to reimagine seemingly hackneyed genres as heartfelt human drama.

In this revealing biography she seeks out the source of that imagination, exploring his artistic liberal upbringing in New York and teenage »

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige Teases A Future Avengers-Guardians Of The Galaxy Crossover

20 July 2014 8:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Guardians of the Galaxy is certainly set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's connection to everything we've seen so far is rather tangential. Because the movie is set far, far away from Earth, the events of the story have very few links to characters like Iron Man and Captain America - but there is one major player that ties the big-screen world together: Thanos. First unveiled in the end credits of The Avengers as the puppet master pulling the strings behind the Chitauri attack on New York, the giant, purple Mad Titan not only has close ties to the lead characters of Guardians, but is actually in the film (voiced by Josh Brolin). But when exactly will that one link grow stronger and bring together the Avengers and the Guardians? This question was recently posed by IGN to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who couldn't outright confirm the future »

Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy won't limit Avengers 2 role

20 July 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy will not affect her role in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, according to writer-director Joss Whedon.

Whedon, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Whedon said that Johansson's role will not be limited or altered because of her pregnancy.

Whedon said about Johansson: "She's very central to the movie and when we heard [about the pregnancy] we scheduled things around that. She's not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries.

"We didn't trim any scenes. We're like: 'We'll make it work.'"

He continued to discuss how Johansson would not be put in any danger, while the action scenes themselves will not be altered.

Whedon added: "We're not avoiding any of the danger because the stuntwomen do the danger—as has always been the case".

Johansson plays Natasha Romanoff and her alter ego Black Widow in the Marvel series.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Early Reactions Call It a Marvel Masterpiece

19 July 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The tweets were alive with the sound of Guardians of the Galaxy last night, shortly after the very first critics screening let loose into the Burbank hills. Disney and Marvel showed the film at the iconic Walt Disney Studios, where, if we're to believe the hype, it did not disappoint.

We've collected some of the best twitter reactions, which call the movie a Marvel masterpiece. Most praise director James Gunn , while no character is singled out (except for maybe Groot). Some even think it's as good or better than Marvel's The Avengers. Is it all hype? We'll know soon enough when the movie opens wide next month. But first, we kick things off with a couple of tweets from our own Brian Gallagher...

#GuardiansOfTheGalaxy was fantastic! Not a false beat in two hours and just an insane amount of fun! #Gotg

Which Marvel movies pass the Bechdel Test?

19 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is Thor. This is the Thor of the Marvel Universe." So ran this week's statement from Marvel Comics, announcing that hammer-wielding Norse god Thor will be female in a new comic series. While a number of reactions from fans and industry folk have been dead on, others have been predictably hostile.

Coupled with the imminent release of Guardians of the Galaxy, which is the first Marvel Studios movie to date with a female screenwriter, this announcement has reignited an ever-brewing debate about women in superhero movies. More to the point, the lack thereof.

After Black Widow proved to be more or less second lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier earlier this year, many were hoping that Marvel would finally bite the bullet and announce a standalone movie for Scarlett Johansson as part of their Phase Three plans. »

5 New Marvel Movies coming

19 July 2014 1:43 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Marvel Studios have announced that it has planned five more movies that will be released between 2017 and 2019. They’ve also locked in specific dates too which you can read below July 8, 2016 May 5, 2017 July 28, 2017 November 3, 2017 July 6, 2018 November 2, 2018 May 3, 2019 Obviously, speculation on what these 5 new Marvel movies are is anyones guess! I’d hazard a guess that Avengers 3 is obviously in there, with that July 6th 2018 or possibly May 5th being a prime contender. Thor 3 could feature in there somewhere as could Iron-Man 4. The Iron-Man one is an interesting idea, as Robert Downey Jr. seems to be winding down his career (if you believe the spin) as a playboy, billionaire, philanthropist. The actor has signed on for The Avengers 3 alright, but nothing about a fourth Iron-Man. A Hulk movie is another possibility as is a Doctor Strange flick.  And If Guardians Of The Galaxy does well, a sequel from that gun toting raccoon and his buddies is. »

May 1, 2015 – Avengers: Age of Ultron

July 17, 2015 - Ant-Man

May 6, 2016 - Captain America 3

Ant-Man, Namor, Dr. Strange, Cap 3 Updates

18 July 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The appearance of Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige in London this week at press rounds for the upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy" has yielded all sorts of updates regarding future Marvel films. Here is a breakdown of the latest by individual movie:

Namor: The Sub-Mariner

Rumors the other month of Universal and Legendary developing a big screen adaptation of the character aren't true because those studios only partially own the rights. Feige says there are no plans for Marvel to move forward with a film either until the legalities are sorted out:

"Let's put it this way - there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it. As opposed to an Iron Man or any of the Avengers or any of the other Marvel characters where we could just put them in. »

Marvel Teases Possible 'Guardians of the Galaxy' / 'Avengers' Crossover

18 July 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is on the cusp of its release in just three weekends, which means Marvel president and producer Kevin Feige has been out and about promoting this huge sci-fi spectacle. One of the questions on everyone's mind, especially since it was teased that they'd be teaming up with Hulk in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, is when we'll see Star-Lord and his team crossover on the big screen with Marvel's The Avengers.

If the rumors we've recently heard are true, it would have to happen in The Avengers 3. But is that the case?

"Part of the fun of the comics is that could happen. Any character could interact with any other character because they inhabit the same time period and the same universe. And certainly it is the inclusion of Thanos most specifically that is a declaration to audiences who are paying attention that this is connected to those other universes. »

A reboot of Columbo is a fantastic idea apart from one enormous flaw

18 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mark Ruffalo will be great as the character Peter Falk made famous but not if he persists in making a big-screen version of the made-for-television detective

Hulk recently smashed Twitter, or at least his punier human half Mark Ruffalo did. The Avengers actor confirmed that he was in the early stages of developing a big-screen reboot of TV's most beloved detective, although the #RuffaloColumbo kerfuffle may yet turn out to be one of those superheated social media storms that flares up and is then immediately forgotten.

At the very least, #RuffaloColumbo has reminded the wider world how much it used to love Columbo. After the late Peter Falk's magnificent, sublimely modulated performances in 69 feature-length episodes, from the gritty 1970s through to the garish 1990s, it feels almost disrespectful to imagine anyone else in the rumpled raincoat. But the last ever Falk episode co-starring a fresh-faced Matthew Rhys from The Americans, »
