Doctor Strange: Characters Mordo And Wong Will Be Handled Much Differently In The Film

28 September 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Marvel Studios is no stranger to changing big details and characters in the transition from comic book to the big screen. When you have source material that spans decades, you’re likely to come across plenty of stuff that no longer rings true in the modern mindset. Perhaps the most controversial of these changes came in the form of Iron Man 3’s Mandarin, a character who was once an offensive racial stereotype. In film, he came in the form of a British actor named Trevor Slattery, who was hired to be a symbol for a fake cause that was ultimately revealed to be the front of the true villain of the movie: Aldrich Killian.

Fans didn’t take this change without offense, and while many understood the change in race, many felt the whole smoke and mirrors angle was a total betrayal of the character. But things like that »

Kevin Feige Defends Marvel Studios' Use Of Doppelganger Villains

27 September 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's no doubt that Marvel Studios has done a more-than-commendable job in establishing their cinematic universe. Back in 2008, the creation of a world that spans multiple franchises was, at the scope of these films, totally unprecedented. Would audiences be able to understand the cross-pollination between films? Would the films even be able to hold up over the course of several years? Could studios overcome the obstacle of stuffing their films with too many characters?

These were all very real questions, and while the result has been groundbreaking, it hasn't been perfect. One big and pervasive criticism are the villains. Marvel runs a very hero-centric cinematic universe, and if you have a world where the heroes are the highlight, it comes at an expense -- the villains. Oftentimes, their motivations are boring, and the schemes unbelievable, and more often than not, their abilities mirror that of the hero's making for relatively uninspired climaxes. »

'Batman v Superman' concept art features Wonder Woman's badass weaponry

27 September 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Robert McKinnon, who's worked on Inception, Iron Man 3, and more, has posted some concept work from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that features alternate versions of Wonder Woman's Sword of Athena and Aquaman's Trident of Neptune. Gal Gadot wonderfully wielded Wonder Woman's sword in Batman v Superman though not nearly enough in my opinion. There was also apparently a ton of detail on the final sword design the audience was never able to see. But McKinnon updated his website with several different versions they could have gone with. And they're pretty rad. She'll have yet another sword in the Wonder Woman solo film. It's likely she'll have more than one, or multiple types of weapons considering we're seeing a younger version of the Amazon princess who is still training with her family. But the other versions McKinnon came up with are all really interesting. Although »

Marvel submits Captain America: Civil War for awards consideration

26 September 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been reveled that last Friday (Sept 23rd), Marvel held a “for your consideration” screening of Captain America: Civil War – officially putting it forward for awards season.

Several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies – including Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Solider, and Guardians of the Galaxy – have found themselves in the ‘technical’ categories, but they’ve never breached into Best Film or Best Actor territories. Could this be their first year?

It should be noted that several blockbusters do this (Michael Bay did it a few years ago with Transformers: Age of Extinction), and its highly likely the Academy will overlook the movie – despite it earning $1.2 billion at the box office with a 90% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has gone on record several times to criticise the Academy for always overlooking summer tentpole »

Favreau Talks Spider-man: Homecoming And Staying In The Marvel Family As Happy Hogan

26 September 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I've said this before, but it bears repeating: Jon Favreau's contribution to the modern superhero boom goes vastly understated.

With 2008's Iron Man, Favreau delivered a movie that would serve as the perfect foundation for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. When Doctor Strange comes out on November 4th, it'll be the fourteenth film set in the world that Favreau helped launch. 

He may get a lot of flack for what many consider to be one of the Marvel saga's weak points, Iron Man 2, but we must remember that a big part of the reason for that film's issues were the number of cooks in the kitchen. In fact, one could argue that the meddling by Marvel executives- forcing him to lay too much groundwork for The Avengers- was why Favreau stepped away and made a little gem called Chef, about a cook finding his groove again. »

Jon Favreau Discusses His Return To The McU As Happy Hogan In Spider-man: Homecoming

26 September 2016 6:13 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming was massive news, fans were even more surprised to learn that Jon Favreau would be returning as Stark's bodyguard and friend, Happy Hogan, who we last saw in 2013's Iron Man 3. In an interview with Yahoo, Favreau described his acting return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as  “a lot of fun. It allows me to maintain the relationship with the McU, but also to do other things that are interesting that are outside of that genre and that set of characters...Especially when the filmmakers are taking care of you, and taking care of the characters and the story. If you’re in good hands, it’s great to come in and play in somebody else’s world. That’s how I started, as an actor. I really enjoy being on other people’s sets, especially »

Jon Favreau Talks Happy Hogan's Return in Spider-Man: Homecoming

25 September 2016 4:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Iron Man 3 hit theaters in 2013, many assumed it may be the last time fans would see Tony Stark's bodyguard/driver, Happy Hogan, played by Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau. Fans were given quite the surprise earlier this month when it was confirmed that Happy Hogan would return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is currently in production. While we still don't know how large or small his role is, Jon Favreau spoke about coming back to the McU.

Earlier this month, Jon Favreau was spotted in a photo released on Twitter by Robert Downey Jr., alongside Marvel President Kevin Feige, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland and Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. While we don't know for sure if Jon Favreau was in Atlanta to film his role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it certainly is possible. Yahoo! Movies caught up with Jon Favreau, who »

Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amelia (Margaret Qualley – TV’s The Leftovers) mysteriously disappears following the production of her ‘experimental artistic film’.

Rebecca Hall Shines As A Florida News Reporter On The Brink In First Christine Trailer

16 September 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You’ve heard of it, haven’t you? Hollywood’s double vision? It’s a tendency that so often results in two duelling features emerging into the limelight that center on the same subject matter, and can range from fantastical adventures (Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman) to more action-oriented spectacle (White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen). At Sundance Film Festival, it occurred again, and this time involves two pictures based on the life and times of Christine Chubbuck.

On this occasion, it is director Antonio Campos that is behind the lens, placing Rebecca Hall in the role of former Florida news reporter Christine Chubbuck. It’s pegged for release in early October, with today’s reveal trailer showcasing Chubbuck’s spiral into depression that would result in her infamous suicide circa 1974. Harrowing stuff, but it does include a standout performance from Hall, who unfairly missed out »

'Iron Man 3' had a female villain until corporate got involved - She Said/She Said

15 September 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

She Said/She Said is a (sporadically) daily video featuring HitFix Harpy Donna Dickens and HitFix Weekend Editor Jill Pantozzi discussing current events in geek news. ******************* Not that long ago, Marvel was struggling with the idea that girls (and boys) wanted to see the ladies of the McU represented in merchandise. Many social media campaigns were spawned questioning the absence of everyone from Black Widow to Gamora. With the removal of Creative Committee, the roadblocks gumming up the works to equal representation in action figures seems to be breaking up. But the effects from that time period are still being felt. Back in May, Iron Man 3 director Shane Black revealed to Uproxx that Rebecca Hall’s character of Maya Hansen had originally had a far meatier role. That of the main villain. “Rebecca Hall’s character was bigger at one point and we reduced it. All I’ll say is this, »

Rebecca Hall on her role in Iron Man 3 being reduced

15 September 2016 5:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May of this year, director Shane Black revealed that he originally planned to have a female villain in Iron Man 3, only for Marvel to nix the idea due to concerns that female action figures wouldn’t sell (as opposed to Aldrich Killian figures, which didn’t sell because they weren’t produced to begin with!).

Black also revealed that female characters Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall) and Brandt (Stephanie Szostak) had much larger roles in early drafts, and now during an interview with the Toronto Sun, Hall has spoken about her role being reduced.

“That’s 100% true. I’ve been gagging to talk about it with someone, but I haven’t had the opportunity, weirdly. I signed on to do something that was a substantial role. She wasn’t entirely the villain – there have been several phases of this – but I signed on to do something very different »

Rebecca Hall Confirms Her Iron Man 3 Character Was Downplayed By Marvel

14 September 2016 3:13 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few months back, it was revealed that Iron Man 3's villain was originally supposed to be a female Aldrich Killian. Speaking with Uproxx while promoting The Nice Guys back in May, director Shane Black stated that they were forced to change the sex of to a male for fear of the toy sales being negatively affected:

“There was an early draft of Iron Man 3 where we had an inkling of a problem. Which is that we had a female character who was the villain in the draft. We had finished the script and we were given a no-holds-barred memo saying that cannot stand and we’ve changed our minds because, after consulting, we’ve decided that toy won’t sell as well if it’s a female. So, we had to change the entire script because of toy making. Now, that’s not Feige. That’s Marvel corporate, »

Rebecca Hall Explains Why Her Iron Man 3 Character “Got Shot Out Of Nowhere”

14 September 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Iron Man 3 is, by all accounts, a commendable threequel. It’s a superhero flick steeped in the storytelling ways of writer-director Shane Black, and the first of Marvel’s standalone films to break past $1 billion worldwide under the shadow of Joss Whedon’s Avengers.

That was three years ago, and since then, those involved in the making of Iron Man 3 have revealed some tantalizing and frankly disappointing tidbits regarding what could have been. First up, Shane Black confirmed some months ago that his threequel initially had Tony Stark’s genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist go up against a female villain.

For the sake of context, Black noted at the time that, “there was an early draft of ‘Iron Man 3’ where we had an inkling of a problem. Which is that we had a female character who was the villain in the draft. [But] after consulting, we’ve decided that »

The company’s rise has been nothing short of astonishing, but the stories emerging from behind-the-scenes have often been bizarre and inexplicable, the result of battles over creative control between several different captains trying […]

Iron Man 3, and its missing villain

14 September 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 15, 2016

Iron Man 3 was supposed to have given Rebecca Hall a much bigger, more villainous role...

This story contains spoilers for Iron Man 3.

When Iron Man 3 finally made it into cinemas back in 2013, it had a couple of villains, including the moment – you know the one – with Sir Ben Kingsley and The Mandarin. Yet originally, there was a plan for another foe in the midst of it all. And this particular villain was set to be played by Rebecca Hall.

Now you may recall that Rebecca Hall (that rhymes) took on the role of Maya Hansen in the movie. It was a fairly minor part in the finished cut of the film, yet the original plan was for Hansen to be far more prominent. In fact, to be a significant villain in the film. The film's writer and director Shane Black had hinted as such »

“I Was Meant To Be In The Movie Until The End”: Rebecca Hall Says Her Role Was Reduced In ‘Iron Man 3’

Many moons ago, in our feature The Best & Worst Moments Of “Iron Man 3,” we were particularly disappointed that Rebecca Hall‘s Maya Hansen “does very little except have a one night stand with [Tony] Stark back in the day, and then inexplicably show up at his house.” Yep, that’s about it, but the actress revealed she actually had more to do in the movie….at least at first.
