Marvel's Agents of Shield S3 E2 is the Whedonverse in microcosm

28 January 2016 3:43 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Please note: This article contains spoilers for Marvel's Agents of Shield S3 E2, 'Purpose in the Machine'. If you're not watching the show, then either a) What?! You must be crazy (joking!) or b) You've obviously missed an episode due to whatever reason (in which case, I'm so sorry), and are now waiting for viewing options to become available so that you can get back into it (but rest assured, it's worth the wait).

This episode was written by D.J. Doyle, who plays with many themes that will be music to the ears of any analytically-minded fans. This is my jam. Delicious food for thought.

Anyway, now that we've got enough puns out of the way to keep Brett Dalton happy should he ever read this, let's get analysing. (To reference Doctor Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog: It's hi-yo, thematic analysis! (Signed Bad Horse.))

If you don't know what a microcosm is, »

'Captain America: Civil War' Has Entered The Pick-Up/Reshoot Phase

28 January 2016 7:18 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ah, yes. A Marvel movie is coming out in the next few months so that means we must enter the time-honored tradition of people posting about "reshoots" and making it seem like there's possibly something wrong with the film. To be clear, to categorize these parts of production as "reshoots" is a bit of a misnomer. More often than not, these are just bits of additional filming that the director(s) felt were necessary after spending a bunch of time in the editing room. Sometimes they need something as simple as an additional camera angle. Sometimes they need to add a little bit of dialogue to make sure something is clear. Or, as was the case in The Avengers, they may be adding one more sequence to slap on as a coda. 

As we speak Captain America: Civil War has entered this stage. Chris Evans and Chadwick Boseman were spotted »

Al Roker Loses Wallet, Pulls a "Mark Ruffalo" on Twitter and Gets Snarky Reply From James Corden

27 January 2016 11:02 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Al Roker has been weathering some bad luck lately...and some snark. The Today show weather anchor recently lost his wallet and like The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo, turned to Twitter for help. He received several replies, none of which offered any hope, and one, posted by Late Late Show host James Corden, stuck out in particular. "I was in a cab yesterday on the West Side, and I don't know if I dropped it in the cab or outside of the cab, but I don't have my credit card. So I tweeted, 'Ugh. Lost my wallet in a yellow cab this afternoon on the west side. Bummer,'" Roker said on the Today show Wednesday. "Well, James Corden, our friend at The Late Late Show, said, 'I »

The Good and Bad of a Marvel and Star Wars Crossover Movie

24 January 2016 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the possibility of a combined Star Wars/McU movie…

This week Stan Lee talked about the possibility of a Marvel/Star Wars crossover movie. It’s a tantalising prospect that throws up so many potential plot lines and will excite as many people as it infuriates.

As both Marvel and Lucasfilm are now owned by Disney, it’s a possibility, albeit it a remote one, though you can guarantee that some studio accountant has done a presentation that combined box office figures for Star Wars and McU films (around $7 billion dollars and counting) in an attempt to get the movie green lit. There are of course several hurdles to overcome before it becomes a reality.

First of all, the films in the McU are, more or less, set now, on Earth, whereas quite famously, Star Wars takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, »

'Agent Carter' season 2 kicks off with suspense, wastes no time connecting to Doctor Strange

21 January 2016 3:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If I could describe “Marvel’s Agent Carter” to someone who has never seen the show, this is what I would say: If you’re a fan of intrigue, mystery, murder, mayhem, secret societies, and fast talking foreign agents, then “Agent Carter” is for you. While it is directly connected to the comic book world of Marvel and a slew of Marvel films like “Captain America” and “The Avengers”, it’s also a fantastic serial mystery show that will satisfy the tastes of any armchair detective looking to test their powers of deduction. Season two begins with a robbery and a double cross -- Russian assassin Dottie Underwood (Bridget Regan, “White Collar”) is holding up a bank to steal a silver lapel pin from the safety deposit box of a secret society. Her heist is interrupted when our heroine, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, “Captain America: The First Avenger”) busts »

Tom Cruise to Star in 'Mummy' Reboot, Coming in 2017

21 January 2016 12:45 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that Universal Pictures had entered talks with both Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella to star in their long-awaited Untitled Mummy Reboot. Today we have a new report from Variety, which reveals that both Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella have officially signed on, with Universal Pictures also setting a new release date of June 9, 2017, pushing it up three months from March 24, 2017. This upcoming adventure will now go up against Paramount's World War Z 2 and Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Ascendant, while it would have only faced Lionsgate's Power Rangers in its old March 24, 2017 date.

No plot details have been confirmed yet, but the movie is set in present day, marking the first full adventure in Universal's shared monster universe. It was confirmed in 2014 that Dracula Untold's end credit scene, where Luke Evans' title character was seen in present day, serves as a prologue to the entire series, »

Mark Ruffalo Compares ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to ‘Midnight Run,’ Which Is Really All You Need to Hear

The first two Thor movies have their moments, but they’re among the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s more forgettable chapters. They never reach the heights of The Avengers or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but they never tumble to the dismal lows of Iron Man 2. They’re just kind of there, a great showcase for a handful of […]

With submissions ranging from countries like Italy and Nepal to as short as several minutes to feature length films, every aspect of storytelling has been covered within the 2015 Soho International Film Festival . It only seems fitting that the festival wraps up its sixth annual festival with a number of prominent presenters including The AvengersRobert Clohessy and Rescue Me’s James McCaffrey.

There was an even greater presence among the jurors of the festival, with people have worked as actors on shows like Dexter to writers and directors  having worked on films like On Golden Years. The jurors included Emmy Award nominee journalist and educator Ernabel Demillo, or ABC Network Casting Head Marci Phillips.

10 Actors Who Refused To Make Sacrifices For Movie Roles

21 January 2016 12:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

For actors, picking the right role can be the difference between rising astronomically to the heady heights of Hollywood superstardom or fizzling out on a downward spiral of obscurity. And sometimes they really don’t make the right call in these situations.

They often let personal bias get in the way and refuse to make the necessary sacrifices that could make their career represents. Some just don’t want to go to all that effort of getting into character, or fear being typecast further down the road. And then there’s those who hubristically think they’re too big for the part on offer.

Crazy, right? Well were are some of the worst instances of Hollywood A-listers refusing to make sacrifices for roles, missing out on what could have been career-defining films as a result…

"Any Character That’s In There Is On The Table": Netflix's Ted Sarandos Talks The Future Of Marvel At Netflix

20 January 2016 7:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"There’s a danger that happens in writing comics, it seems every 10 to 15 years, where you paint yourself into a corner or you get into such convoluted continuity that only the most hardcore of fans can figure it out," Kevin Feige told Newsarama way, way back in 2008. At the time, the only two Marvel movies to his name were "Iron Man" and "The Incredible Hulk" (which was technically a Universal release). And while he was already laying out the path to "The Avengers" back then, I'd wager even he couldn’t foresee the branches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe reaching out to Netflix. The streaming service got out of the gate with the first two Marvel properties last year in “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones,” and they couldn’t have asked for a better response. Both shows were critically well-received and embraced by fans, and there’s much more on the horizon, »

'Jurassic World 2' Eyes Director Juan Antonio Bayona

19 January 2016 12:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few weeks before Universal's massive blockbuster Jurassic World hit theaters, director Colin Trevorrow revealed that he would not come back to direct the sequel Jurassic World 2. The movie opened with a $208.8 million, breaking Marvel's The Avengers' three-year opening weekend box office record, en route to a domestic tally of $652.2 million and $1.6 billion worldwide. In July, Universal officially confirmed that Jurassic World 2 is hitting theaters on July 22, 2018, although they still have not landed a director yet. Today we have word from Deadline that Juan Antonio Bayona is the front runner to take the helm of this sequel.

This news comes just a few days after the filmmaker parted ways with the Paramount sequel World War Z 2. Deadline reports that the director's name was mentioned as a contender to direct the sequel back in September, but his involvement was later denied. The site reports that no official negotiations are under way, »

Capitain America: Civil War directors join long list of people calling for a Black Widow movie

14 January 2016 2:54 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Captain America: Civil War's directing duo, Joe and Anthony Russo, expressed interest in directing any future potential Black Widow film. A film who's lack of existence on this earth continues to baffle anyone with even a passing knowledge of who or what the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about. The pair enthused about the character while attending a Chinese junket for Civil War (via Comics Alliance), with Joe adding; "We find that the character is one of the richest, if not the richest, character in the Marvel universe. She's a very complex character. She's haunted by demons and her understanding of the world is fascinating. I think there is a lot that can be done with that character." Logically, it's maddening this hasn't happened yet. The only two Avengers without their own franchises are Black Widow and Hawkeye. And putting it bluntly: nobody cares about Hawkeye, everyone loves Black Widow. »
