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. »

‘American Sniper’ Soars to Super $64 Million in 2nd Week at Box Office

25 January 2015 7:33 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Johnny Depp’s “Mortdecai” and George Lucas’ “Strange Magic” bomb as Jennifer Lopez scores with “Boy Next Door

The Iraq War saga “American Sniper” soared like a superhero movie at the box office, with a $64.3 million second weekend in wide release that would make any caped crusader proud.

The Clint Eastwood-directed telling of the tough return home by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, played in the movie by Bradley Cooper, continued its electrifying run with the best second weekend ever by an R-rated movie. In the process, “American Sniper” hit the $200 million mark in domestic grosses just 10 days after earning nominations for Best Picture, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Black Panther

25 January 2015 12:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Black Panther is one of the most iconic heroes in all of Marvel comics.

The key Avenger first appeared on panel as a supporting character of the Fantastic Four in Fantastic Four #52 in July of 1966 and has been a prominent and important figure in Marvel lore ever since.

Having been hinted at since 2010’s Iron Man 2, the character is now finally set to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – with his own film scheduled for a November 2017 release. He will appear before then in Captain America: Civil War, with Chadwick Boseman taking on the role of the hero, but will have to wait that little bit longer for his solo offering.

Far from being as popular as the likes of Iron Man, Captain America and Hulk – particularly in terms of mainstream popularity – Black Panther is still very well known, but there are lots of facts about him »

Paul Bettany: 'Avengers 2' Is Biggest Marvel Movie Ever

23 January 2015 7:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paul Bettany has provided his voice as J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark's indelible A.I., in four movies, including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Marvel's The Avengers. But in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he will finally appear in the flesh as Vision, and it was the first time he actually got to interact with the ensemble cast on set. Speaking with Radio Times, the actor was able to provide a bird's eye view into the production, and he was beyond impressed with what he saw. He even claims that its the most ambitious project Marvel has attempted yet:

"I've never been on a bigger set on my entire life than in The Avengers (Age of Ultron). One [part] seemed to be the corner of a town, with helicopter cameras, and drone cameras flying about. I just haven't seen anything that big, so it was »

'Avengers 2': Don Cheadle on the Return of Rhodey

21 January 2015 12:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Don Cheadle made an appearance on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, to promote the new season of his hit Showtime series House of Lies. During his interview with Seth Meyers, the actor briefly touched on his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and his friendship with Robert Downey Jr. that was formed after Iron Man 2. Here's what he had to say below.

"After Iron Man 2, Robert and I struck up a friendship and we're both very busy, but we get to see each other time and again, and now this new Avengers crew, some of them I know from other things, but getting to do these movies and traveling around the world, it doesn't suck. It's a lot of fun."

We haven't heard much about Rhodey's role in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he was seen during the party scene at Avengers Tower, which was »

Where next for The X-Files?

21 January 2015 10:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now that David Duchovny has said he'd be happy to return, what are the options for The X-Files long-mooted return to television?

Warning: contains spoilers for The X-Files and for the comic book continuation Season Ten.

The X-Files, much like several of its villains, is a show that refuses to die. A seminal, ground-breaking series in the 1990s, it became a slightly creaky series in the early 2000s, then a cancelled series, then a movie following on from the original series, and now it may become a series again. But where can the show go now? There are a number of options available…

Season Ten, starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson

Judging from comments made by Fox representatives Dana Walden and Gary Newman, this is the current plan – they want to bring back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Mulder and Scully and continue the series, presumably picking up after »

How to Make A Cbm Sequel Great

19 January 2015 3:24 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Do movies need sequels?  Well, we're about to get a lot of them.  It's not uncommon, as making every single movie a standalone picture is, well, almost impossible.  So if you're gonna make a sequel, here are some things to make in mind to make it great! Make it a Standalone Sequel Unless you have to make it a direct sequel, give it it's own story.  That doesn't mean you can't reference the first, but don't make the sequel into a product of the first story.  Let's look at Spider-Man 2.  We had Peter trying to live as both himself and Spider-Man.  We didn't have the Harry storyline as the main focus.  It was a new story.  It didn't stray away from the first, as sequels shouldn't do.  But the first movie did not make the second movie.  An example of that is Iron Man 2, where the first directly »

The Superhero Spin-Off: Will a Black Widow solo movie ever be made?

19 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pim Razenberg on whether a Black Widow movie will ever be made…

Back in October the announcement of Marvel Studios’ Phase Three movie slate surprised everyone with the absence of a movie centred on Scarlett Johansson’s superspy Natasha Romanov, a.k.a. Black Widow. Long rumoured since the introduction of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, many fans expected the movie to be announced as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s third slate of films. But was it really that big a surprise that it didn’t happen?

Like Hawkeye, Black Widow was passed over for a spin-off movie in Phase Three, seemingly ruling out the possibility for a solo outing for the foreseeable future. Yet looking at Phase One and Phase Two, the movie’s exclusion was not all that strange. This year the Marvel Cinematic Universe will see the release of its eleventh instalment, Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

Judy Greer promises lots of comedy and “comedic improv” in Ant-Man

19 January 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The trailer for Ant-Man was released a couple of weeks ago and many were surprised by the sombre tone. Given the movie is directed by Peyton Reed (I Love You, Man) and written by Adam McKay (Anchorman) with Edgar Wright (The World’s End) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) having also previously worked on the project, many thought it would be more comedic compared to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In fact, several of our writers (and the Flickering Myth Podcast) theorised that a more serious trailer had been cut to stick with the “Marvel style”, while the actual movie would be tonally different.

In an interview with Ant-Man star Judy Greer, she seemed to back up this theory, “I haven’t seen it yet but there was a lot of comedy on set and we did a lot of comedic improv,” she told IGN Movies.

DVD Review – God’s Pocket (2014)

15 January 2015 1:08 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

God’s Pocket, 2014.

Directed by John Slattery.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, John Turturro and Eddie Marsan.

Synopsis:

A blue collar worker (Hoffman) tries to cover things up when his stepson is killed in a suspicious accident, but a local reporter (Jenkins) senses that something’s amiss.

Mad Men is one of many TV shows that have given us so much over its seven year run: millions have been transfixed on the stories of Don Draper and co as they advertise and smoke their way through 1960’s corporate America. But amongst the storylines and character arcs, its given us a wealth of superb talent. The likes of Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss have taken Hollywood by storm, but now its the turn of actor-turned-director John Slattery (Iron Man 2) to take a stab at making a splash in Hollywood, and with co-star Christina Hendricks in tow, moves »

Trailer Trashin’: Meet the Size-Changing Avenger in Ant-Man

14 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s not even halfway through January, dear readers, and we’ve already seen trailers for many of the year’s big movies. Such is the case with this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column, which examines our first look at Marvel’s upcoming July release Ant-Man.

Premise: Petty thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength – from various new threats, and plot a heist that will save the world.

My take: It’s been a long, strange journey to the silver screen for Marvel’s size-changing hero Ant-Man. Marvel Studios began developing the project way back in 2006, when they hired English filmmaker Edgar Wright – the man who brought us Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), and The World’s »

Agent Carter: 10 Easter Eggs And References You Need To See

11 January 2015 6:31 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ABC

Where it maybe took a half-season or so for Marvel to find their feet with their first televisual spin-off of their Cinematic Universe, they’ve hit the ground running with the second. Agent Carter is everything Agents Of Shield didn’t quite manage at first: well-drawn characters, works well within the budget, and less reliance on reheated Whedon tropes.

Something both shows have in common, however, are the sly way in which they expand on riff on their shared setting. The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow with Agent Carter, as it absorbs more concepts, characters and organisations from their comic book source material which could one day turn up in the films too.

A lot of the nods and in-jokes in Agent Carter are of a different piece to those in Agents Of Shield – what with it being set a good sixty years before it, with Peggy working »

Kevin Feige comments on Ant-Man “disagreements” with Edgar Wright

9 January 2015 11:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the accompanying press release for the first Ant-Man trailer came the news that original director Edgar Wright and his writing partner Joe Cornish will not receive a screenwriting credit on the twelfth instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite spending the best part of a decade working on the script. Instead, the duo will receive a “Story By” credit, with star Paul Rudd and Anchorman helmer Adam McKay contributing enough of a rewrite following Wright’s depature to gain sole credit.

We still don’t know the full details concerning Wright’s departure, but Marvel chief Kevin Feige has briefly spoken about the split during a chat with EW, stating that: “It is true that there were disagreements about the direction the script should take. Everything was above board. Everything was done with everybody else’s knowledge. There was a sense of ‘We’re going in this direction, you »

New images, concept art and Yellowjacket details from Marvel’s Ant-Man

8 January 2015 11:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Marvel released the first trailer for Ant-Man [watch it here], the studio’s second movie of 2015 after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now we have some new promotional images of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang both in and out of the Ant-Man suit, as well as some images and ‘Ant’s Eye’ concept art…

Meanwhile, Corey Stoll has revealed some details about his character, the villain Darren Cross, who will be suiting up as Yellowjacket: “[Darren Cross] was this child prodigy that Hank Pym nurtured. He started to become aware of this fabled technology that can shrink people to half an inch. Now he’s discovered his own version of that technology-which has a psychotic effect on people if they use it too much.”

As for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, director Peyton Reed states: “He’s not used to being a hero. He’s more like George Clooney in Ocean’s Eleven. He »
