The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.
Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.
“Beauty and the Beast” is expected to open huge for Disney this weekend, but just how huge?
Experts project Disney’s latest film, “Beauty and the Beast,” to open between $140 and $155 million, which would put it high up on any box office list.
‘Beauty and the Beast’ Soaring to Epic $155 Million Opening at Box Office
Here, we’ve divided Disney’s highest grossing opening weekends into the “Star Wars” and Marvel films, and everything else. In the combined rankings, “Beauty and the Beast” would rank seventh on list, but the way we have it here, the live action remake would top No. 1, above “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and “Finding Dory.”

If Marvel fans had their own super powers, perhaps bringing Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans closer together would be on the top of their to-do list. While the Hollywood stars have starred together in several Marvel movies including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, some admirers have always wondered if these two could turn into more than friends. Sure, tabloids have come up with wild headlines that they could possibly be romantically connected. According to a source, however, Scarlett isn't focused on getting into another relationship following her divorce from Romain Dauriac. "Scarlett just got separated from Romain and is still dealing with the fact that now she's had two failed »

With an illustrious career and over 150 acting credits, Samuel L. Jackson is no stranger to performing. Yet, on Wednesday night’s episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Jackson had the pressure of the host’s “Role Call” segment. Together, Jackson and Corden reenacted over two dozen of Jackson’s most iconic films… all in 10 minutes.
In white jersey T-shirts and black blazers, Corden asked Jackson, “Do you think we would be able to recreate some of those films right here, right now?”
Switching wigs and swapping ties and jackets at super speed, Jackson and Corden began with the 1994 film “Pulp Fiction” and ended with “Soul Men.” They were also sure to plug Jackson’s upcoming film “Kong: Skull Island,” which »

It’s a Marvel reunion – a Captain America: The Winter Soldier reunion, to be specific – as Nick Fury Samuel L. Jackson has closed a deal to join Sebastian Stan in the upcoming political drama, The Last Full Measure.
Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Samuel L. Jackson now rounds out a cast list comprised of Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Bradley Whitford and Michael Imperioli. The outlet stopped short of disclosing the identity of Jackson’s character, but we understand filming is due to commence later this month across Atlanta and Costa Rica, when writer-director Todd Robinson will be calling the shots from behind the lens.
Based on a true story – not unlike the Pentagon Papers picture that’s coalescing with Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep – Robinson’s Oscar-worthy drama orbits around a young Pentagon investigator named Scott Huffman (Stan), who’s “battling the political machine in Washington. He »

Nick Fury is teaming up with The Winter Soldier, with Foresight Unlimited announcing that Samuel L. Jackson has joined his joined his Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Infinity War co-star Sebastian Stan in director Todd Robinson’s (Lonely Hearts) upcoming political drama The Last Full Measure.
THR reports that the film is based on the true story of a cover-up operation and follows “Pentagon investigator Scott Huffman (Stan) as he battles the political machine in Washington. He reluctantly teams with veterans of Operation Abilene to convince Congress to award the Medal of Honor to a courageous Air Force medic, William Pitsenbarger, who is seen saving the lives of more than 60 Marines who were ambushed in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. As the battle waged on, and after the last helicopter left, he continued to save lives until his own was sacrificed.”

Director J. A Bayona has taken to social media to reveal the first look image of his venture into the Jurassic World 2 sequel revealing his darker visual tones in the ominous image to the delight of many of his twitter followers.
The image, which depicts a lone girl – assuming this is the returning Dallas Bryce Howard as Claire Dearing as a child – standing with her back to camera in a museum surrounded by the skeletal forms of dinosaurs. The picture has an unnerving ambience in its structure which keeps fans of the Jurassic franchise guessing at its yet unveiled plot. Could this image also reveal what we can expect from the plot? We are thinking some kind of flashback sequence may just be on the cards, just speculation of course but tell us what you think.

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.
For as popular as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is, there’s been a growing contingent of both moviegoers and critics who have called the franchise out for its formulaic storytelling and overall uniformity. While a certain consistency is expected (and even laudable?) among the various installments of a multibillion film series, the 14 McU releases to date have in most instances fallen prey to the same shortcomings. With few exceptions (e.g., Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), nearly all of the films hew particularly close to the Iron Man formula that kicked off the whole enterprise in the first place. With Iron Fist, a similar pattern is beginning to form with the interconnected Netflix series firmly set within (but, still, not really) the McU.

On “Dynasty,” Dale will play the butler, Anders. The revival of the ’80s primetime soap follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this Wasp family and America’s most powerful class.

Just about everyone who’s seen it — audiences, critics, “X-Men” superfans — seems to agree that “Logan” is a very good movie, one that brings the Wolverine saga to a soulful and satisfying note of dramatic closure. No matter how many more “X-Men” films ever get made, this is certain to go down as one of the highlights. Yet when you watch “Logan,” what’s striking isn’t merely that it’s better but that it’s different — different from the other entries in the series, and different from most comic-book superhero films. It’s a dystopian Western road movie that ambles and settles in and takes its time (it’s the opposite of fragmented), and it’s intently focused on the human side of Logan — who he is, what he wants, the feelings roiling around inside him — even though he’s a character that movie audiences have lived with for 17 years. »

Thanks to illustrator Marek Okon, we have a look at some rather nice concept artwork for Captain America: Civil War, which is very close to what we saw in the final film and features designs for Avengers HQ, the Wakandan lab where Bucky is cryogenically frozen, and the Avengers’ showdown with Crossbones’ men in Lagos, Nigera. Take a look here…
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony »

It’s safe to say that many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are clamoring for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow to receive her own solo superhero movie.
Recently, the actress mentioned that it is only a matter of timing, and now, courtesy of MTV, we have another update from the red carpet of the Academy Awards, where Johansson stated that: “I’m still trying to wrap my head around Infinity War which is like…the production is an infinity. And then I’ll let you know afterwards.”
JOhansson also went on to reveal that she’s discussed the project with The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon (who has previously indicated that he could be tempted back to the McU for a Black Widow movie,), adding that “We talk about it all the time. We text each other back and forth.”

Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 are currently shooting in Atlanta, and will be shooting back-to-back in a massive production that is expected to last most of 2017. They will also be shooting in Scotland at some point in the near future, and brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, who are directing the massive movies, will surely have their hands full for the foreseeable future. Not too busy to mess with fans a bit, and post a very confusing, hard to decipher tease though.
The Russo brothers are not what you would call very active on social media, but they do occasionally decide to post something that gets fans talking, or at the very least has them scratching their heads. That being the case, the mysterious and seldom active @Russo_Brothers Twitter account recently posted a photo that is borderline impossible to really understand, but is almost definitely a tease for Avengers: Infinity War. »

Shandling made 17 films, and starred in a handful, such as Warren Beatty’s 2006 comedy Town and Country, but he had high-profile cameos in the likes of Zoolander and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He was also a Hollywood staple, frequently hosting programmes such as the Grammys, Emmys and Saturday Night Live.

It has been more than a decade since Peter Jackson unleashed his version of King Kong on moviegoers and while it is not generally considered to be a bad movie, it is a bit slow and definitely had some issues. Legendary Pictures is getting ready to reintroduce the legendary ape next month and this time around, it looks to be a pure, action-packed monster adventure. With the release of Kong: Skull Island less than a month away, a new trailer is set to be released tomorrow and we already have a little glimpse at what's to come.
The official Twitter account for Kong: Skull Island released a brief but loaded-with-monster-action tease for the upcoming trailer. It was also announced that a brand new and likely final trailer would be arriving online tomorrow. If this brief tease is any indication, we are in for a whole lot of King King duking it out with other beasts. »
We already knew that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) are set to feature in Avengers: Infinity War, and now Michael Rooker has revealed we’ll have a full house of the Guardians of the Galaxy, confirming his return as Yondu with Instagram posts from the Atlanta set of the Marvel blockbuster…

Infinity War started shooting a few weeks ago under Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo, but we’re yet to get an official cast list from Marvel. When we do, expect it to be Huge.
