Even if its plot stopped moving altogether, hanging out with Agent Carter's hugely fun characters would be attraction enough...
This review contains spoilers.
2.5 The Atomic Job
Everyone loves a heist, and that goes double for the Marvel Universe. Agent Carter’s might not quite be on the scale of Ant-Man’s (in more ways than one) but with a pair of atomic bombs at the heart of it, you can’t argue that it’s not high stakes.
More than any other week, this one shows that the ensemble cast of Agent Carter is one of its biggest strengths. Adding new field agents in the form of Rose and Samberly – unconventional though they are – simply added to the amazing screwball tone the series has been nailing since its return. It worked because they weren’t just there for the ride – they had their own jokes and dynamic as well. »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has officially entered principal photography today in Atlanta, Georgia. To celebrate the beginning of production for the highly-anticipated sequel to the hit 2014 McU flick, director James Gunn shared a pic of the film’s new logo (seen above).
The logo is found on the back of Gunn’s director’s chair from the set of the movie, which he posted on Facebook alongside the caption, “To quote the great poet David Coverdale, Here I Go Again,” simultaneously hinting at a new song to obsess over in Awesome Mix Vol. 2.
As with most projects in Marvel’s oeuvre, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is largely shrouded in secrecy, although most theories point to the plot somewhat centering around the gang discovering the truth behind the identity of Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) father. Along with Pratt, the other guardians are all returning: Gamora (Zoe Saldana »

The British studio, which announced it may be looking for a buyer, is the darling of the tax credit system designed to lure big-budget productions to the UK

Once you’ve established your bona fides at the security gate – there to deter both the rubbernecker and the obsessed movie fan – and you step inside the gate of Pinewood Studios, it’s clear that this well-manicured set of low-rise sheds and warehouses is a long way from the ramshackle film studios of yore. Perched on the edge of a country park in rural Buckinghamshire, Pinewood hums with a respectful, well-fed purposefulness, testament to its place as the chosen location for forthcoming international mega-productions such as Rogue One, Doctor Strange and Assassin’s Creed.

Anghus Houvouras on 2016 being a “make or break” year for comic book movies…
2016 is a pivotal year for the comic book movie, and maybe not for the reasons you think.
Not just because Warner Bros. finally arrives to the party with their shared cinematic universe. And not because we’re seeing more second class characters getting their own feature films. Hollywood has dipped into the dollar bins before trying to make big screen successes out of second tier characters like Swamp Thing, Jonah Hex, Elektra, and The Punisher with varying degrees of success. In the case of those four examples, ‘success’ is merely referencing the fact that the movies were financed, produced, and released. Creatively they were toilet bowl expeditions looking to see who could make their way deepest into the drain and the public was all too eager to flush.
Deadpool arrives in theaters this weekend and the stakes have never been higher. »

This week, Deadpool will be unleashed on the masses (that are old enough to get into an R-rated movie) after what seems like an awful long time in development.
For more details on how X-Men: Origins Wolverine and the terrible, horrible mess it made of the Wade Wilson character, I point you to the inaugural Los Fanboys Latino-Review podcast which has a great interview with Rob Liefeld and a discussion about Deadpool (as well as hot takes on the week’s most recent movie news, as you’ve come to expect).
Until Deadpool is something everyone’s gotten to see, best to not spoil the nitty gritty, the call backs or discuss the mystery of something called Feige’s Pizzeria appearing in the movie. Seeing as how Marvel Studios had nothing to do with it. I guess it’s now fair game to poke at the other megafranchise, which »
Last night, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn held an impromptu Q&A session on his Facebook page, where he answered questions for nearly an hour through a live video feed. We know production will begin soon in Atlanta, with Marvel already setting a May 5, 2017 release date. There is very little we know about the story thus far, but one of the most interesting tidbits he shared is that there will be no Infinity Stones featured in the sequel.
"We're not really so much about the Infinity Stones in Guardians 2. Is that a spoiler? It's not really a thing."
As of now, four of the six Infinity Stones have been revealed, but it isn't known when the last two will come into play. The Space Stone was the Tesseract, which is currently housed in Asgard, with the Mind Stone currently serving as a power source for Vision. The »
Last year, Marvel announced that they are bringing back the beloved comic book series The Age of Apocalypse, which will spin off of their massive Secret Wars series. Of course, the news wasn't too surprising, since X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theaters this summer. Now the comic book company has announced another special surprise, leading up to this movie's release. IGN has the first look at seven variant covers that will be released throughout May, featuring beloved characters such as Spider-Man and Captain America.
These covers give fans a glimpse at how these heroes might have looked during the Age of Apocalypse comics, with other heroes such as the Guardians of the Galaxy, Uncanny X-Men, The Astonishing Ant-Man, All-New, All-Different Avengers and All-New X-Men. Other comics that will be getting variant covers throughout the month of May include Black Panther #2, Black Widow #3, Captain Marvel #5, Daredevil #7, Deadpool #11, Doctor Strange #8, Extraordinary »
The film is based on the H.G. Wells novel of the same name, which was notably adapted into a movie in 1933 starring Claude Rains. In the film, Rains plays Dr. Jack Griffin, a chemist who concocts a serum that turns him invisible, then infamously wraps his face in bandages and embarks on a killing spree.
Despite the news of Depp's involvement neither a release date, »
He's played a pirate, an outcast, and a mobster, and now that Johnny Depp is set to star in The Invisible Man, the prolific actor could add "iconic Universal Monsters character" to his list of memorable roles.
Deadline reports that Depp is lined up for the lead role in The Invisible Man. The character was created by legendary author H.G. Wells in his 1897 novella, The Invisible Man. In the novella, a scientist named Griffin engages in criminal activities after performing an irreversible experiment on himself that causes his body to become unseen by the human eye.
It's not yet known who is writing The Invisible Man script or who will direct the movie, but it is a part of Universal's new shared cinematic universe featuring iconic characters from the studio's history, including Wolf Man, Dracula, Van Helsing, the Bride of Frankenstein, and The Mummy.

On a dreary day for its competitors in the entertainment sector, Disney reported on Tuesday record quarterly earnings of $2.9 billion for the quarter ended Jan. 2, with earnings of $1.73 per share exceeding both analysts’ estimates and year-prior performance.
Led by revenues of $15.24 billion, Disney posted double-digit increases over a year prior for revenue, operating income, net income and free cash flow.
Among the driving forces behind the performance, Disney cited the more than $2 billion worldwide box office for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which it said drove the record income in both its studio entertainment and consumer products/interactive units. The studio’s income was up 86%, while consumer products/interactive grew by 23%.
Led by its domestic destinations, Disney also reported big growth in its parks and resorts operation, where operating income grew 22%.
A consensus among analysts before the report had predicted earnings of $1.45 per share on revenue of $14.75 billion.

In the past few years, February has gone from a month that rarely features any box office hits, to a viable frame to open big blockbusters. Recent hits like The Lego Movie, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman: The Secret Service have proved that fans will brave the elements and head to the theaters in droves for the right movie, and this year is no different, with three new releases arriving this weekend, all of which are slated to take in more than $20 million, according to the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com. The big runaway winner, though, is expected to be the superhero adaptation Deadpool, which could come close to making box office history, although Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single are expected to perform well also.
Last month, analysts started tracking this blockbuster-to-be, predicting that its opening weekend could be anywhere between $55 million and $60 million. The movie has »
Gary Collinson on the 2016 superhero box office showdown…
We’re used to seeing three or four superhero movies each year, but 2016 sees Hollywood’s infatuation with costumed heroes making the jump to ludicrous speed with Six superhero movies set to grace the big screen (it would have been seven, had Fox been able to get its act together on Gambit). But which one will come out on top? Here’s our predictions for this year’s Superhero Showdown…
Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions
As always, we’ll get things underway with a quick recap of last year, which saw Marvel bringing the curtain down on Phase Two with Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and 20th Century Fox killing the Fantastic Four franchise again with the disasterous reboot from director Josh Trank.

Disney’s Super Bowl ad for “Captain America: Civil War” dropped ahead of the Big Game on Sunday, asking viewers to choose a side: #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan.
While Steve Rogers and Tony Stark were able to work together before, thanks to a common goal, a rift forms between the two in “Civil War,” splitting the famous superheroes up. In the new clip, Stark tells someone, “You chose the wrong side.”
The trailer was released during CBS’ Super Bowl pre-game show. Unsurprisingly, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was nowhere to be found in the new footage.
Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans return as Iron Man and Captain America, respectively. Additionally, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Rudd will be returning to the franchise.

It seems like ages ago since the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted way back in November. Many fans assumed that the next glimpse of footage we'd get would come during Super Bowl 50, since there were rumors that Disney was planning on promoting multiple movies during the big game. For once, the rumors proved to be true, as the studio unveiled the new trailer earlier today, which you can check out for yourself below.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers »
Gone are the days when something as small as sticking Black Widow into Iron Man 2 would be enough to excite the fans of Marvel’s films. Now, after two gigantic Avengers movies and all those teasing post-credits stings, audiences have come to expect a bit more.
In reaction to this, Marvel Studios have turned Captain America 3 into Captain America: Civil War, lifting beats Mark Millar’s massive comic book crossover of the same name and stuffing shedloads of other superheroes into what was originally perceived as a solo adventure for Steve Rogers. Meanwhile, Hulk is set to appear in Thor: Ragnarok and they’re also developing Infinity War – an Avengers story so huge in its crossover-friendly scope that they’ve had to spread it over two movies.
After these three films reach cinemas, audiences will continue expecting massive Marvel movies with tonnes of cameos and lots of inter-franchise crossover excitement. »
