Mickey Rourke Defeats Opponent Half His Age in First Fight in 20 Years

9 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mickey Rourke has gone from The Wrestler back to boxing. The actor, 62, returned to the ring Friday, defeating a fighter less than half his age in a Moscow exhibition bout. Rourke sent Elliot Seymour, a 29-year-old former California Golden Gloves champion with a 1-9 professional record, to the canvas twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight. Many know Rourke as the '80s actor from 9½ Weeks or his more recent roles in Sin City and Iron Man 2, but the star got his first taste of fame as a boxer in the '60s and '70s. »

20 Past McU Easter Eggs That Will Mean Something In Phase 3

27 November 2014 7:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Movies these days are absolutely full to the brim with Easter eggs, references and director nods. Often, they are simply included for the sake of giving people something to search for, but they can also potentially foreshadow future inclusions in subsequent movies.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such inclusions are particularly prevalent and are more likely than most franchise’s Easter eggs to foreshadow future instalments for the simple reason that there are so many films.

Some Easter eggs have already proven to mean something, such as mid and post-credits scenes like Nick Fury’s visit to Tony Stark’s mansion in Iron Man, Mjolnir appearing at the end of Iron Man 2 and Loki’s interest in the Tesseract in Thor, as well as the likes of Captain America’s shield showing up in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, Hawkeye’s cameo in Thor and the »

What's New on Netflix Streaming in December 2014

25 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Netflix streaming is upping the ante this December, adding enough high-profile TV shows and movies to more than make up for last month's lackluster offerings.

On the movie side, highlights include Will Ferrell and gang in "Anchorman 2," the Heath Ledger-starring "A Knight's Tale," Cameron Crowe classic "Almost Famous," Oscar-winning "American Beauty," and horror hits "Oculus" and "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." Oh, and let's not forget '80s classic "Troop Beverly Hills," '90s cult favorite "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion," or Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

And there's plenty to love about what's coming on the TV front: "American Horror Story: Coven" finally gets its day on Netflix, "Sharknado 2" storms its way to streaming, and Brit hit "Broadchurch" finally lands stateside. Oh, and December sees the premiere of the hotly anticipated Netflix Original series "Marco Polo" on the 12th.

"Guardians" Helmer Talks Shared Universes

23 November 2014 8:40 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One thing that a handful of studio development executives and some very hardcore Marvel fanboys have in common these days is an adamant belief that a "shared universe" is the only way to go with adapting certain material.

The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has certainly lent weight to the argument, but in its case it had decades of comic book source material, years of planning and plenty of careful world building across individual works before fully unveiling its wider ambitions.

Others who're attempting to jump on the bandwagon don't seem to be anywhere near as organised or patient with the process. "Guardians of the Galaxy" filmmaker James Gunn has now weighed in on his Facebook page with his thoughts on the topic, and hopes studios will become more concerned about making a good base product than concentrating on wild plans to spin it off before audiences have had »

Why are Marvel's women all such buzzkills?

23 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"You just wanna suck the joy out of everything," Rocket Raccoon complains to Gamora early in Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket's certainly not being presented as the voice of reason here – he's sulking because Gamora refuses to let him blow up moons – but the exchange does hit on something that's been bothering me about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more specifically its women.

In 2018, Marvel Studios will release their first female-led superhero movie in Captain Marvel, a long-awaited announcement that was understandably greeted with excitement earlier this month. Carol Danvers will be McU's third female superhero overall, following Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Zoe Saldana's Gamora, and my only wish is that she be written as something other than an unflappable, stony-faced buzzkill.

Yes, the female Guardian of the Galaxy is the most competent, smart and strong of the bunch, but she's also the least likeable, as polls »

Evangeline Lilly said she “held off” from joining Marvel’s Ant-Man after Edgar Wright’s departure

22 November 2014 1:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evangeline Lilly is set to reprise the role of Tauriel next month for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, after which she’ll be joining another blockbuster franchise as she makes her Marvel Cinematic Debut as Hope Van Dyne in July’s Ant-Man. Speaking to InnerSpace (via Cbm), Lily has revealed that she held off on committing to the film following the departure of Edgar Wright, but was ultimately swayed by replacement director Peyton Reed’s take on the project…

“I was [bummed out] when Edgar and Marvel decided to part ways. I was nervous, and I kind of held off from signing my contract because I actually wanted to wait and see what would happen. I met Peyton [Reed] and we spoke, and I was convinced that I was going to do the project. He has such impeccable taste, he’s so collaborative, so much fun, and »

Star Wars: Darth Vader Comic Covers by Adi Granov

19 November 2014 10:56 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you don't know who Adi Granov is, then you need to read the intro I wrote about him for an artist spotlight we did for him a year ago:

Adi Granov's design of Iron Man is what really put him at the top of my list for favorite comic book artist. Granov's style is dimensional, cinematic, and pure awesome. It's easy to see why Marvel chose him to do lots of early concept work for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Avengers movies.

Marvel has been releasing Star Wars comic books after Disney's purchase of Lucas Film. Marvel is using its roster of talented artists to create amazing covers for it's Star Wars comics. Adi Granov has created variant covers for Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 and #2.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Star Chris Pratt Named One Of GQ's Men Of The Year

17 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

GQ have a great cover feature on Chris Pratt which you can read by clicking on the link below, and the magazine even caught up with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn to quiz him on the actor's transformation into a bonafide Hollywood hunk. "I thought, Well, hell, he's overweight, but if that means we have the world's first overweight superhero, I'm okay with it." Pratt meanwhile didn't see the problem, either. "You can make a talking raccoon that looks real. Why can't I just be fat?" However, it turns out that he was more than happy to embrace the challenge of getting in shape. "I like the challenge of it." The actor also recounted a bizarre encounter with Iron Man 2 actor Mickey Rourke when the two met on a plane as Pratt and wife Anna Faris were trying to calm down their young son. "Like Shhhh! Like he's the baby whisperer. »

10 November 2014 2:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your Us box office report for 7th – 9th November 2014…

Last weekend, the entire release of movies managed to do around $94 million. This week, that number was eclipsed by the top two with both Big Hero 6 and Interstellar taking over $50 million each.

10 November 2014 2:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

Marvel Studios are becoming quite well known for their Easter eggs and references in their movies.

Ever since the first Iron Man movie when Nick Fury appeared in the post-credits scene, or when Samuel Sterns’ head began to mutate in The Incredible Hulk, or when the map of key Marvel locations was seen in the background in Iron Man 2, eagle-eyed and keen-eared viewers have been looking and listening out for fun little inclusions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Whether these inclusions lead to anything, or mean anything, or whether they are simply there for the purposes of novelty value, it’s always good to spot these things in any movies – Marvel movies, other comic book movies or all movies in general.

In the case of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Easter eggs and references have ranged from universe-building examples like the name-dropping of Doctor Strange, cameos from Marvel »
