What Robert Downey Jr. Learned From Iron Man 2's Mediocrity

18 February 2015 8:18 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Marvel Studios wasn.t always the superhero movie giant that it is today. Prior to the massive success of The Avengers, the films were hit and miss, and Robert Downey Jr..s Iron Man movies were most reflective of this. While the first one did extremely well, the second one was a let down. But as with any hiccups, Rdj learned a valuable lesson in his path to becoming a mega superstar. During an interview, Empire magazine asked the actor about what he learned from the underwhelming Iron Man 2, now that he and his fellow Marvel stars are trying to replicate the success of Avengers. He said: You can.t do the same thing, only smaller, not as cool. There.s that other trap - where it.s, "Everything is bigger! Better! Do you know how many gigabytes we used in the opening sequence? How many terabytes?" Ultimately it »

'Black Widow' Covers "Esquire"

17 February 2015 4:17 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Studios' favorite 'Black Widow' actress Scarlett Johansson, crowned "The Sexiest Woman Alive" in "Esquire" magazine.

"I gotta hustle," said Johansson about her acting career. 

"Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.

'Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing... this thing with 'Esquire'..."

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'. 

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character.

Will Nick Fury Die For Real In Captain America: Civil War Or Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1?

13 February 2015 7:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During a recent IGN interview for his terrific spy actioner Kingsman: The Secret Service, which opens in theaters today, Samuel L. Jackson noted an extremely interesting piece of information about his current place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that makes us somewhat concerned for the future of his character, Nick Fury.

Asked about how long he expected to keep playing the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D., Jackson chuckled and said, “I’ve only got two more movies in my contract. That might be the end of it unless I get an extension!” Of course, the optimistic Marvel fan sees that and shrugs – because why wouldn’t Marvel renew Jackson’s contract? However, that’s not the only way the studio could progress.

The actor has played Fury in eight Marvel movies thus far – Iron Man, Iron Man 2ThorCaptain America: The First AvengerThe AvengersCaptain America: The Winter Soldier »

Samuel L. Jackson has two films left on his Marvel deal

12 February 2015 12:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following his post-credits appearance in Iron Man in 2008, it was confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson had signed a whopping nine-film deal with Marvel Studios to star as Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the actor has spoken to IGN about the current status of contract during a promotional interview for Kingsman: The Secret Service.

“I’ve only got two more movies in my contract. That might be the end of it unless I get an extension!”

Since Iron Man, Jackson has featured in Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as featuring in two episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Clearly his Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cameos haven’t counted in his deal, and with the star set to return for 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, that could potentially just »

Is 'Avengers 3' Samuel L. Jackson's Final Marvel Movie?

12 February 2015 10:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just how long will Samuel L. Jackson continue to play Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? As of now, the actor only has 2 films left on his 9 movie contract. Speaking with IGN, the actor shares this bit of information as a matter of fact, but holds out hope that he will eventually extend his contract with Marvel:

"I've only got two more movies in my contract. That might be the end of it unless I get an extension! I don't know..."

Figuring out Samuel L. Jackson's list of Marvel movies gets a little tricky with end credit sequences and other appearances, such as his cameo in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. He first appeared as S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Nick Fury in 2008's Iron Man, but Marvel had a tough time getting the much-in-demand actor to sign one of their extensive studio contracts. He has since appeared in six more movies, »

New concept art for Marvel’s Ant-Man

11 February 2015 6:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we get over the shock and excitement of Spider-Man finally coming home to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we still have Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man to look forward to over the next couple of months.

Thanks to the chaps over at Cbm, we’ve got a new piece of concept art (or promo art) from Facebook that shows Ant-Man backed by an army of ants. Check out the image below:

Zoolander 2 to shoot this spring in Italy

10 February 2015 7:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“One look?!….One Look?!”

After the success of long-gestating sequels Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Dumb & Dumber To, it looks like we will finally see the return of Magnum-looker Derek Zoolander in the anticipated follow-up to 2001’s cult hit.

This week, Italian site Bad Taste has apparently reported the Mayor of Rime Ignazio Marion has announced that Zoolander 2 is coming to Italy this spring to shoot for 12-weeks at the famous Cinecittà Studios, as well as its surrounding areas.

“Rome returns to the center of the international destinations of great cinema,” Ignazio said.

The Mayor also met with star Ben Stiller, who is reprising his role as the male supermodel with a heat of gold but a brain like a melon, with Justin Theroux (Iron Man 2) co-writing and directing.

The sequel looks set to reunite Stiller with original stars Owen Wilson as Hansel, Will Ferrell as Mugatu »

Sexy New Photoshoot With Avengers: Age Of Ultron Star Scarlett Johansson

9 February 2015 8:38 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

You're probably not reading this as you've already skipped down to check out the smoking hot photos of Scarlett Johansson, but here's what the actress told W Magazine about signing up to play Black Widow in Iron Man 2. "People were surprised that I wanted to play a comic book heroine. But I loved Iron Man, and I met with Marvel to see what was possible. I had done my research, and the Black Widow character resonated with me. She is dark and has faced death so many times that she has a deep perspective on the value of life. In the sequel, you learn more about the sadness in her past." As for what appeals to her about the character, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star added: "I think of her that way. Black Widow is a superhero, but she’s also human. She’s small, but she’s strong. »

Thor Director Kenneth Branagh Wants To Helm Another Marvel Movie - Ragnarok Perhaps?

6 February 2015 8:39 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Kenneth Branagh stated publicly that a scheduling conflict kept him from returning to direct Thor: The Dark World, but the rumor mill cited the old "creative differences" as the real reason. It wouldn't be that surprising given the fact that both Patty Jenkins (who was originally lined up to direct the Thor sequel) and Edgar Wright dropped out of their respective Marvel projects for that very reason, and although Jon Favreau returned for Iron Man 2, his experiences working on that saw him hand the reigns over to Shane Black for the threequel. Either way, it would seem any problems Branagh might have had with the studio have been put to bed. The Hollywood Reporter asked the Cinderella director if he'd ever be open to returning to the McU while interviewing him at the Berlin Film Festival, and here's what he said.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s UK Release Moved Closer

3 February 2015 12:39 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

It’s been a pattern since at least Iron Man 2 that Marvel Studios movies will get their UK release ahead of the Us. Looking at the schedule for the next few years, they’ll be keeping this up almost of the time, with just a few films released in the same week on each side of the pond.

But even in those close-call cases I think the UK will get the movie first. We’ve got a way of releasing some bigger films on Thursdays here in the British isles that hasn’t, not yet at least, caught on with our American cousins.

The latest film to go for that four day weekend, and the extra boost to the box office reports that it brings, is The Avengers: Age of Ultron. As tweeted out by Marvel themselves, the film will now release on April 23rd and not 24th. »

10 Actors Who Need To Join The Marvel Cinematic Universe, And Who They Should Play

2 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron capping off Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this May, and the studio moving boldly forward into Phase Three, which will bring new characters like Captain Marvel (yes, the Carol Danvers version!) and the Inhumans into the fold, the future is beyond bright for comic-book fans. So far, Marvel has put nary a foot wrong (we’re just going to go ahead and overlook the weaker aspects of Iron Man 2 on account of it giving us Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow), both in terms of its films’ plots and the actors that the studio has cast as its super-powered protagonists, and there’s no reason to think that trend is going to end anytime soon.

That said, us fans have some serious feelings about which Marvel creations should grace the big screen next – and just as importantly, which actors should be entrusted with bringing them to vibrant, »

How Marvel's Ant-Man Movie Will Tie Into Agent Carter

30 January 2015 11:27 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As another piece in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it makes sense Ant-Man would have a few ties to previous Marvel projects to connect with the adventures of Scott Lang, Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne. John Slattery will be reprising his role as the older Howard Stark (last seen in Iron Man 2), and it.s been heavily suggested that Hayley Atwell will also appear as spy extraordinaire Peggy Carter. Although the latter has yet to be officially confirmed, Peggy will regardless still play an important role in the Ant-Man lore through Marvel.s upcoming two-issue prequel comic series Marvel.s Ant-Man Prelude. You can check out all the preview pages for issue #1 at Newsarama, but the scene starts off with an older Peggy with a young Hank Pam circa early 1960s. While telling him the importance of improvising when one doesn.t know what they.re working with, she »

Paul Bettany talks future of The Vision after Avengers: Age of Ultron

29 January 2015 2:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Bettany is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having provided the voice for J.A.R.V.I.S in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers/Avengers Assemble and Iron Man 3, but he’s set to make his first on-screen appearance as The Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Speaking with an Australian news outlet, Bettany has spoken about the role and announced he has the standard multi-picture deal post Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me,” Bettany told the news outlet “I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it. »

Vision Will Return After 'Avengers 2' Hints Paul Bettany

28 January 2015 9:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters this May, fans will get to hear a very familiar voice in a new way when Paul Bettany's J.A.R.V.I.S. becomes Vision, the first time the actor will actually be seen on screen in a Marvel movie. While promoting his new comedy Mortdecai, the actor hinted in an interview with News.com.au that Marvel has a plan for his character, without specifying what they may be. Here's what he had to say about his multi-picture contract with Marvel.

How Agent Carter gets the female comic book hero right

25 January 2015 7:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

No latex, no drooling, no preaching – has Marvel's Agent Carter mastered the comic book heroine?

Warning: contains mild spoilers for Agent Carter.

The perfect standalone female comic book hero has been a somewhat unobtainable dream for both Hollywood moviemakers and small screen show-runners ever since Blade, X-Men and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man launched us into the modern age of superhero multimedia dominance.

Of course, there have been attempts – Catwoman and Elektra were released in 2004 and 2005 respectively, both hoping that the proven bankability of their heroine’s male counterparts (as in, Batman and Daredevil) and a few skimpy outfits would be enough to help launch massive new female-fronted franchises.

Sadly, both productions essentially missed the point. While exploitative images of nearly-nude lady vigilantes might be enough to make a few shillings from the comic-buying masses, making a mint from a comic book movie takes strong performances, solid action, likeable characters and – above all – good stories. »
