Could Replacement Actors Keep the Avengers Franchise Going After the Original Cast Leaves?

  • Cinelinx
While Marvel’s comic book adaptations are a hot commodity just now, the cast of Marvel/Disney’s Avengers franchise are running out of movies on their contracts and have dropped hints that they are not going to play their respective hero characters beyond their current commitments. Will Marvel and Disney let the franchises die after the cast leaves or will a new cast take over?

Movie studios don’t like to let go of a good thing. They like to find ways to keep a lucrative franchise going, even without the original cast. For instance, when the younger cast of X-Men: First Class replaced the stars of the original trilogy; or when the Star Trek: Next Generation cast took over the Star Trek franchise from the classic Trek crew. Since Marvel/Disney’s the Avengers was a colossal hit and the sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected

Snowpiercer: Come On, Baby, Do the Loco-Motion!

Virtuoso devisers of works of science fiction envision a reality that is both fantastical and palpable. They mold metaphoric manifestations of the coming times that are inevitable considering the current carryings-on of their fellow man.

Nowadays, none of these visions are utopian. Dystopian nightmares are plaguing our literary works and cinemas, reflecting the inoperativeness besetting our governmental institutions, the greed swathing our unassailable international corporations, and the zealous indifference of our neighbors.

But has it ever been any different? Metropolis (1926), The Time Machine (1960), A Clockwork Orange (1971), Soylent Green (1973), Blade Runner (1982) and Dark City (1998) all were forerunners of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and even the Transformer series.

Now the Korean auteur Bong Joon Ho, who's never perused humanity through rose-colored glasses (e.g. The Host (2006); Mother (2009)), has adapted the French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige, and the result is gleefully entertaining and conceptually refreshing.

In the year 2014, the world's leaders, to combat

Train in Vain: How 'Snowpiercer' Became the Summer's Coolest Movie
What would happen if, thanks to an attempt to stop global warming that went awry, our big blue marble were plunged into a new ice age? The result would be pretty much what you would expect: Humanity's survivors would find themselves trapped on a perpetually moving supertrain divided by strict us-vs.-them barriers (plebians in the back, patricians in the front), and the huddled masses would have to fight their way to the front, one bloody siege at a time.

Everything you need to know about 'Snowpiercer,' this summer's best post-apocalyptic comedy-horror fairy tale

Everything you need to know about 'Snowpiercer,' this summer's best post-apocalyptic comedy-horror fairy tale
A few months after he played Captain America for the second time in The Avengers, and a few months before he’d play Captain America for the third time in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Chris Evans went to Prague in the spring of 2012 to film Snowpiercer (rated R, out now). For Bong Joon-ho, a South Korean phenom shooting his first English-language feature, this presented a supersize challenge. You see, Evans’ character, who leads a ragtag, rag-wearing lower-class community in a full-blown revolt against their decadent overseers, is supposed to be malnourished. “The only difficult aspect of shooting Chris was hiding all his muscle mass,

Chris Evans Needs Help With the Title of His Directorial Debut

Chris Evans Needs Help With the Title of His Directorial Debut
Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is expected to rake in record dollars at the box office this weekend, but star Chris Evans still needs your help. He’s looking for a better title for his directorial debut, tentatively called “1:30 Train,” a placeholder name that he doesn’t like.

Evans describes the film as a cousin to Richard Linklater’s “Before Sunset”– it tells the story of a young woman (Alice Eve) who misses her train home and spends the night talking to a stranger (Evans) at Grand Central Terminal. He recently finished editing the movie-not-called “1:30 Train,” and expects that it will enter the festival circuit next year.

“I got to think of a new title,” Evans told Variety last month, during an interview at his house in the Hollywood Hills. “Any ideas?” Here are some deal-breakers: he absolutely doesn’t want the new name to include the words night,

Chris Evans Is Ready To Leave Acting Behind!

In an exclusive with Variety magazine, the news comes suddenly that actor Chris Evans, most recently known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel universe, is ready to leave acting behind in pursuit of a career as a director. Worry not though, Marvel fans, he wants to give his six film contract everything he’s got before he hangs up the shield.

“If I’m acting at all, it’s going to be under Marvel contract, or I’m going to be directing,” he says. “I can’t see myself pursuing acting strictly outside of what I’m contractually obligated to do.”

Evans’ six-picture deal with Marvel is in the process of nearing completion, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier being his newest addition. With Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers under his belt already, with the additions of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age Of Ultron,

‘Captain America’s’ Chris Evans Says He’s Ready to Leave Acting Behind

‘Captain America’s’ Chris Evans Says He’s Ready to Leave Acting Behind
There’s no escaping Captain America — especially for the actor behind the blue mask. That’s not just a career assessment. It’s a physical reality. To gear up as the iconic Marvel superhero, Chris Evans, the star of the upcoming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” once again dons his trademark patriotic suit, which requires the actor to wear a snug latex undergarment that keeps the uniform from clinging to his sculpted muscles.

Given the confines of the zip-from-the-back costume, Evans jokes that there’s one thing audiences won’t see Captain America do — head to the bathroom. “Not to get too graphic,” he says, “but you’d better hope you’re on a nice schedule in that thing. There are all these zippers and buttons.” And he only sheds the suit with the help of a wardrobe entourage. “You could fight all day; you’re not getting out of it.

Liotta, Kassen & Turner Team-Up For ‘Alone’

Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Sophie Turner (Game Of Thrones) and Mark Kassen (director and star of Puncture) have all signed up for new indie project Alone.

Kassen will star as Freeman, a soldier who has returned from war, only to suffer Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (Ptsd). Through treatment, Freeman befriends Penelope (Turner), a rebellious New York teenager whose father (Liotta) does not approve of their friendship. Matthew Coppola (Fresh Cut Grass) wrote and will direct the feature.

Liotta, a living legend of film, was brilliant in Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond The Pines (but we all knew he would be). I haven’t seen anything starring Kassen, but I do know that Turner is a favourite in Game Of Thrones. It’ll be interesting to see where they take the film, especially with indie director Coppola.

Judge Won't Allow 'Mass-Suing' of Movie Pirates

Judge Won't Allow 'Mass-Suing' of Movie Pirates
On Thursday, a federal judge in Ohio expressed displeasure of the "unseemly practice" of joining hundreds -- and sometimes thousands -- of anonymous copyright pirates together in a lawsuit The litigation was brought last November by Safety Point Productions, Picture Perfect Corporation and Voltage Pictures. Together, the three companies filed four lawsuits against 197 unnamed defendants accused of violating the copyright on the 2011 film Puncture, starring Chris Evans. U.S. District Judge James Gwin won't allow that. He's ordered the joined defendants to be severed, saying that while it might have saved $67,000 in court costs, the business model employed

Law & Order's Jesse L. Martin Replaces Lenny Kravitz For Marvin Gaye Biopic

Even though a two-hour biopic about Marvin Gaye.s life probably wouldn.t hold a soul-and-cocaine-fueled candle to the roller coaster that was Gaye.s private life, it.s still a highly anticipated project that has been through all sorts of developmental hell. But like the man says, let.s get together and get our hopes up once again. Deadline is reporting through the grapevine that Jesse L. Martin will suavely step into the role of Gaye in Sexual Healing, to be directed by Julien Temple, well-known for a career full of documentaries. Martin is best known for his work as Det. Ed Green on Law & Order, though he.s recently appeared in Todd Graff.s musical Joyful Noise with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, as well as the Chris Evans-led drama Puncture. He.d actually been attached to the project back in 2008, when James Gandolfini was producing. Sadly

Chris Evans And Michelle Monaghan Sign On For Anti-Romantic Comedy A Many Splintered Thing

While a six picture deal with Marvel Studios would make any actor fear being stuck doing nothing but playing the same character over and over, Chris Evans has managed to keep finding roles for himself outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since Captain America: The First Avenger's release we've seen him play a heroin addicted lawyer in the drama Puncture, the male romantic lead opposite Anna Faris in What's Your Number? and he will soon be seen as a killer's assistant in The Iceman and a man struggling to survive in a world that has been devoured by ice in Joon-ho Bong's Snow Piercer. And while he will be getting back in the red, white and blue come January when production starts on Captain America: The Winter Solider, he's now found yet another non-superhero role.

Frightfest 2012 Review: The Victim

The Victim

Stars: Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc, Ryan Honey, Danielle Harris, Denny Kirkwood | Written and Directed by Michael Biehn

2011 was a busy year for Michael Biehn, with roles in Jacob, The Divide, Take Me Home Tonight, Puncture and Yellow Rock. And somewhere in between all that he managed, along with his wife Jennifer, to write, direct and star in the grindhouse-esque The Victim.

Biehn plays Kyle, a recluse living in a cabin in the woods, keeping himself to himself and spends his days and nights listening to self-help books and watching online self-help videos. However he unassuming life is shattered when Annie (Blanc) comes knocking at his door one night in a blind panic. You see Annie and her friend Mary (Harris) were partying it up in the woods with two cops, Harrison (Honey) and Cooger (Kirkwood), from the local Sheriff’s department when Mary, mid-coitus, is accidentally killed by Harrison.

Charlize Theron / Chris Hemsworth Star Power: Box Office

Charlize Theron, Snow White and the Huntsman

Rupert Sanders / Kristen Stewart’s Snow White And The Huntsman Box Office: Why the Sharp Drop?

Well, surely both Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth have their fans. But when was the last time Charlize Theron had a major personal box-office hit? The answer is never. This is no put down, but a fact. No movie toplining Theron has ever earned more than $100m at the North American box office. Not even close. Not even adjusting for inflation.

Charlize Theron at the box office

Charlize Theron’s biggest personal box-office hit was her Oscar-winning star turn in Patty JenkinsMonster back in late 2003/early 2004. The story of a sex worker-turned-serial killer, the awards-season-propelled Monster raked in $34.46m, or about $45m today.

Theron, of course, has been featured in a handful of box-office hits. But none of the three major hits (over $100m, adjusted for
