Marvel’s Comic-Con Panel Features Ant-Man, Avengers: Age Of Ultron Footage, And Guardians Of The Galaxy 2

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

Marvel Studios have constantly raised the bar each and every year at San Diego Comic-Con, so it had a lot of high expectations to live up to in Hall H on Saturday night. Judging by reactions from fans and the amount of content the studio presented, they unfortunately didn’t quite reach the heights that attendees were hoping for.

The studio is known for announcing handfuls of films in advance, showing off footage, and bringing the majority of its casts on stage, but this year they didn’t quite do as much as early buzz and wishful thinking anticipated. There was a very quick panel about Ant-Man, a huge chunk of time devoted to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the announcement of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. 

Other than that, there was no mention of upcoming projects like Doctor Strange or an announcement about what films the majority of their newly »

He then uses Pym’s technology to become the supervillain Yellowjacket, who “causes a lot of havoc.” On his character’s motivations, Stoll said:

Stephen Colbert dresses up for Hobbit panel at Comic-Con

26 July 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stephen Colbert hosted The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Comic-Con panel in costume today (July 26).

The television host first appeared in a video before taking to the stage dressed as a Lake-town spy, the same role he cameoed with in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Chris Hardwick was originally meant to host the discussion, but stepped aside to let Colbert moderate.

Colbert expressed his excitement in the video and admitted that he couldn't believe he had got to do it, before introducing the panel and joking about Peter Jackson.

He said: "Rumour came to us that director Peter Jackson would be making an adaptation of the [Lord of the Rings] trilogy, and at the time many of us knew him for the adaptation of Heavenly Creatures.

"The only problem as I saw it, with a total running time of 11 and a half hours, they were too damn short."

The Final "Hobbit" Gets A Comic Con Panel

26 July 2014 3:08 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Warner Bros. Pictures' Comic Con panel this morning devoted half of its runtime to Peter Jackson's final film in his prequel saga - "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies".

Jackson and almost all the major cast (McKellen, Freeman, Armitage couldn't be there) were in attendance to talk up the movie at a panel hosted by Stephen Colbert dressed in the outfit he wore whilst doing a cameo in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug".

Jackson says lots of the film's effects are still being worked on and he's still doing some motion capture filming at this time. The tone of the new film is much darker, Jackson saying: "There’s a lot of sadness and tragedy. It's not as comical as the first Hobbit movie and they’re progressively getting to tone of Fellowship Of The Ring." He added that: "it’s always great when you can kill off some main characters. »

Stephen Colbert Just Showed Up At Comic-Con Dressed Like This

26 July 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are a lot of great things about Comic-Con but none more so than watching famous people turn into fans. It.s easy to forget sometimes, but celebrities actually get obsessed over the same kinds of things us normal folk do. Let the record show Stephen Colbert is one of them. He.s been hardcore into Jrr Tolkien for most of his life, and today, he reminded everyone of that by randomly showing up at Comic-Con to take part in The Hobbit panel. As you can see in the above picture, the late night host and future David Letterman successor showed up in the same outfit he wore during his cameo in The Hobbit 2, or as only hardcore Tolkien fans bother calling it The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. Or as all the dumbshits you know likely call it, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smog. You can check out Colbert »

James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2

25 July 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel expected to announce its Phase Three plans at Comic-Con tomorrow, it seems we may be getting to see more of the Guardians of the Galaxy after the release of next week’s superhero space opera, with screenwriter Nicole Perlman telling The Wrap that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is happening, with James Gunn returning to direct.

“[Marvel] started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction. Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they’ll wanna do a sequel. So it’s going to happen. James will be directing Guardians 2, so he would also be writing Guardians 2.”

So, it looks like Marvel has plenty of faith in Gunn, and we’ll find out if it’s warranted when Guardians of the Galaxy arrives next week. »

Chris Pratt wants Star-Lord to kill Iron Man

25 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a press conference in London promoting Guardians of the Galaxy (read our ★★★★ review here), director James Gunn spoke about Chris Pratt’s ideas of what would happen if and when the Guardians meet Earth’s Mightiest Heroes...

“Chris and I were driving somewhere and we were having one of our ridiculous conversations about Guardians and what we could do with this universe,” the director explained. “And he looked at me and said, ‘dude, I really, really think Star-Lord should kill Iron Man. It would be so awesome if he just came down, and shot Tony Stark in the face. People would be so surprised!’”

“Marvel will never use any of my ideas, so this isn’t a spoiler”, Pratt adds. “But in the comics, Tony Stark and Gamora have a little thing – and how does Peter Quill feel about that? And he’s all like, ‘I don’t like »
