Lyndsy Fonseca Boards Marvel’s Agent Carter TV Series

4 hours ago | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Former Nikita agent Lyndsy Fonseca has been recruited by Marvel to finalize the cast for the upcoming Agent Carter TV series set to debut during the Agents of Shield winter hiatus. Though Fonseca's resume, which also includes Kick-Ass, might indicate she'll be kicking Hydra butt alongside Hayley Atwell, that assumption  couldn't be further from the truth.

Instead, Fonseca will play an aspiring actress by the name  of Angie Martinelli. Like Peggy Carter, Martinelli is struggling to find her place as a woman in the post-war world of 1946, and she will befriend Carter as they lean on each other to overcome numerous obstacles.

Here's Marvel's official synopsis for Peggy Carter, based on a character that first appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, in modern times in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of Shield. She will also appear in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, »

23 October 2014 1:37 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From the sinister Ultron to the amazing Hulkbuster armor, this 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' trailer is incredibly revealing.

In a move that is likely to set a bad precedent, Marvel Studios released their extended teaser/trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron a whole week earlier than planned after a low-res version leaked online early Wednesday.

According to Deadline, acting quickly, and wanting their fans to get a good, solid look at the film's massive explosions, Marvel released this incredibly exciting sneak peek.

Oh wow, this movie looks amazing. Dark, somewhat bleak and a little nihilistic, but amazing.

In this harrowing sequel, Sheild has been destroyed and the Avengers are getting worn out from all this "constantly saving the whole world" business. So, in a stroke of genius, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) restarts an old peacekeeping intuitive »

With just under three weeks to go until its release, a new poster has arrived online for The Imitation Game, which features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as British mathematician and World War II codebreaker Alan Turing…

See Also: Read our review of The Imitation Game here

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Kick-Ass 3′

17 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Mark Millar | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 232pp

When Kick-Ass was introduced to the world by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. not only were we introduced to that him as a character, but more importantly Hit-Girl.  Dave Lizewski aka Kick Ass wasn’t a real superhero, Hit-Girl was, and she made Kick-Ass into everything he was destined to be.  Now we are at Kick-Ass 3 is Dave finally a fully fledged superhero, or still a comic book obsessed wannabe?

Kick-Ass 3 starts with a shocker, Hit-Girl is arrested and stuck in a maximum security jail.  Leaving instructions for Kick-Ass on how to break her out she waits for the day he finally rescues her.  The only problem is he has other things on his mind, mainly a new girlfriend and the Justice Forever team which is fragmenting, and his focus is on everything but being a superhero. »

Robert Downey Jr. may bring Iron Man to 'Captain America 3'

13 October 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Tony Stark and Steve Rogers have never really gotten along. They may not be enemies, but if not for The Avengers they probably wouldn't be friends, and the abrasive relationship between Iron Man and Captain America has fueled one of the greatest storylines in the modern Marvel Comics universe: Civil War, the epic 2006-07 crossover series that pitted hero against hero. Now comes word that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to join Chris Evans in Captain America 3 in a story that would bring this clash to the big screen, two sources confirm to EW. But it is "far from a done deal, »

Is Mark Strong in Bond 24?

2 October 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daniel Craig is currently preparing to begin work on the still-untitled 24th James Bond movie, and payed a little pre-filming visit to Morocco this week. There, he’s been spotted with The Imitation Game and Low Winter Sun actor Mark Strong.

The photo taken of them in Morocco together has sparked quite a bit of speculation that Strong is in fact in Bond 24, perhaps as the newest Bond villain. He’s often stated his desire to play that role, and has shown throughout his career that he can be a formidable adversary (just look at his work in Kick-Ass, Green Lantern, and Sherlock Holmes, which landed him on the top of fan wishlists for the role of Lex Luthor).

While it’s entirely possible that Strong is playing a Bond villain, this news should be taken with an Aston Martin-sized grain of salt. He and Craig are close friends, »
