The latest issue of Empire Magazine serves up a preview of Marvel’s next superhero blockbuster Ant-Man, offering some insight into Edgar Wright’s shock departure from the project due to creative differences with Marvel Studios, as well as comments from incoming director Peyton Reed (Down with Love) about the pressure of stepping into Wright’s shoes.

“Was it a strange situation? Absolutely,” states Reed. “One of my concerns upfront was, ‘Someone else has developed this movie for a really long time. Can I come in and make it my own?’ And that has absolutely been the case. For one thing Marvel have let me explore the dark side of Hank Pym – this tortured, guilt-ridden guy. I love that this is a mentor/pupil story, but with a fucked up pupil and a really fucked up mentor.”

Did Avengers: Age of Ultron negate the one thing that makes Ant-Man special?

21 May 2015 11:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on how Avengers: Age of Ultron accidentally eliminated the one thing that makes Ant-Man stand apart from the crowd. Be warned, Age of Ultron spoilers abound…

For Avengers: Age of Ultron, director Joss Whedon was faced with several enormously difficult tasks; he had to make a riveting follow-up to his much beloved first Avengers team-up, give each of the film’s new and returning cast members their due, and spend some of that screentime laying the groundwork for several upcoming Marvel projects as well. While he managed, for the most part, to succeed in those three tasks, he also inadvertently stepped on one of the only things that makes Ant-Man – the Avenger up to bat – stand apart from his McU brethren.

The lead has been buried in the film’s marketing in favor of selling audiences on the rather goofy premise, but at Ant-Man‘s core is a story about fathers and daughters. »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, Sexism and Hollywood

17 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Sexism and Hollywood…

Like many, I feel as though Hollywood has a major diversity problem, with the status quo being handsome white males.  Look no further than Avengers: Age of Ultron as an example. Marvel Studios has been trying to diversify the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the limited amount of characters in its arsenal that are people of colour, but the film could serve as a microcosm of what’s wrong with the industry. I think women, homosexuals, and minorities should have larger representation, especially in blockbusters that are supposed to appeal to every culture. But what I don’t like is the pettiness of some groups that take every chance they get to proclaim something misogynistic, racist, or homophobic in order to get their message out, while making people want to distance themselves from the cause due to their hyperbole.

"Black Widow" Movie Trailer

15 May 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek an impressive, new trailer put together by an ambitious fan to support Marvel Studios plans to develop a "Black Widow" solo feature, starring Scarlett Johansson, reprising her 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' role as 'Natasha Romanoff', plus take a look @ the new Marvel Select 'Black Widow' action figure from "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

"I’ve spoken to Kevin (Feige) about it," Johansson said about a solo film. "I mean, of course, of course we’ve had that conversation before, and I think Kevin would also like to see a standalone film." 

In 2009, Johansson signed on to play 'Natasha Romanoff'/'Black Widow' in multiple films, beginning with 2010's "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy.

"Right now I think this character is used well in this part of the universe, but I think that Kevin—I mean, we’ve talked about it and we both share similar vision for what could be a standalone series. »

Box Office: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Hits $875.3 Million Globally

10 May 2015 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No one can keep pace with the Avengers.

Cinema’s preeminent superhero team towered over the competition, as “Avengers: Age of Ultron” topped the foreign box office this weekend with an estimated $68.3 million. That brought its global total to $875.3 million.

With a China opening scheduled for next Tuesday, the Disney/Marvel release should pass $1 billion at some point next week. Its worldwide haul is already ahead of the majority of Marvel titles, besting the lifetime grosses of “Captain America” ($371 million), “Thor” ($449 million), “Iron Man” ($583 million), “Iron Man 2″ ($622 million), “Thor: The Dark World” ($645 million), “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($714 million) and “Guardians of the Galaxy” ($774 million).

If the film is able to match or surpass 2012’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” and its $1.5 billion bounty, it will be largely because of foreign audiences. Domestically, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has earned $312.9 million, which trails its predecessor by more than $60 million at a »

'Ultron' Hot, 'Pursuit' Not

10 May 2015 7:25 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron didn't plummet from the sky like that Sokovian fiefdom in the film but, with its $77.2 million 2nd week outing, it did drop 59.6% from its opening take of $191 million. Surprising amounts of Monday-morning quarterbacking this last week noted that Ultron could have become the new #1 film for all-time weekend box office if it hadn't been up against several sporting events that siphoned off eyeballs. Even still the Disney/Marvel property has a lot to celebrate. Domestically it easily dominated the box office at the #1 position with a per theater take of $18K in 4,276 venues. That $77.2M is still the 2nd highest 2nd weekend gross, just ahead of the 2nd weekend of Fox's Avatar ($75.6 million), and is topped only by it predecessor, Marvel's The Avengers ($103.1 million). Ultron's domestic take to date ($313M) has also already surpassed the lifetime domestic cumes of Captain America ($177M), Thor ($181M), Thor: The Dark World »

Why stories should be celebrated

8 May 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The idea that Star Wars (and storytelling more generally) is something to be celebrated would seem, at first glance, to be obvious. However, in a world where the mere mention of George Lucas or the Star Wars prequels or Jar-Jar Binks almost automatically becomes a cheap punchline, as if no-one could possibly be allowed to hold an opposing, positive opinion of them, and where creators like Joss Whedon are harrassed on Twitter (possibly being a contributing factor in his decision to delete his account recently) for daring to write a character in a way certain fans don't approve of, the point obviously needs to be made.

(Whatever the specific arguments may be for or against Black Widow's characterisation in Avengers: Age of Ultron, let's not make things personal, and let's not lose perspective. It is a film with a lot of things going for it, after all.) As Joss Whedon himself sings on Commentary! »

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »
