After parting ways with Twilight composer Carter Burwell over "creative differences" last month, Marvel Studios has apparently locked in a replacement for the upcoming film, Thor: The Dark World. According to Film Music Reporter and other sources, composer, producer and conductor Brian Tyler has signed on to tackle the score of the Alan Taylor-directed sequel. There're no further details provided, but Thor: The Dark World is currently in post-production and apparently underwent minor reshoots very recently. Meanwhile, Brian Tyler has also been tapped to score the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and past credits include Iron Man 3, The Expendables, Fast Five and Final Destination series. In other Dark World-related news, Heimdall actor Idris Elba promises "there is a story" for the gatekeeper in the much-anticipated Thor follow-up. "The director has gone for a really interesting perspective on the world that Thor comes from," Elba informed »
When it comes to licensing, Disney is the undisputed king of the castle.
The Mouse House generated $39.4 billion in retail sales from licensing, dominating the category with 80% marketshare, according to the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Assn., more than any other studio or entertainment conglomerate.
But Disney believes that figure could rise even higher now that it controls Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars” franchise, the second most successful licensed property behind Disney Princesses.

In fact, Disney Consumer Products said it’s “poised” to widen the gap between its rivals even further as it plans to grow the “Star Wars” business through additional licensing opportunities, according to Bob Chapek, president of Disney Consumer Products.
“The Disney brand is our most powerful asset and with the acquisition of Lucasfilm, our franchise portfolio has never been stronger,” said Chapek »

While only a few of us (or is it just me?) dread The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set for release on May 2, 2014, Sony is moving forward on a third and fourth film, scheduling June 10, 2016 and May 4, 2018 for those films. Sony Pictures’ Chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Jeff Blake, said in a press release, “Spider-Man is our most important, most successful, and most beloved franchise, so we’re thrilled that we are in a position to lock in these prime release dates over the next five years.” Yeah, sure. Whatever.
The Canadian based Sci-fi series Continuum, which is near completion of its second season up north, and just starting here on the SyFy Channel, has been picked up for a third season there. It’s a fairly good bet that Syfy will probably air season three sometime in 2014.
Not surprisingly, the recent story about the finding of lost Doctor Who episodes has »
Marvel fans could not be happier that Joss Whedon is making the rounds to plug his indie “Much Ado About Nothing” because with each new interview, “The Avengers” helmer seems to dribble out an update on the impending sequel.
In his latest interview for Empire Magazine’s podcast, he says that Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, will not return for the next installment and explains why.
““First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well,” Whedon says. “Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back. Not as an insult. It’s just a nice word.”
Loki isn’t completely left out of the Marvel universe, though, with the latest trailer for “Thor: The Dark World »

In talking about Avengers 2, Joss Whedon let it spill that there will be no Loki in Avengers 2. Here’s what the man had to say about his progress on the script and Loki’s involvement or lack thereof:
“I’ve turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody’s very much on board with the exact movie I’m trying to make which is what worked the first time.”
“Imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things.”
Fans of Tom Hiddleston will surely be disappointed, but I think the forthcoming Loki dose in Thor: The Dark World should be enough. That’s 3 films featuring the horned trickster, more than enough for now in my opinion.
Whedon also mentioned that they begin shooting the new batch of »

Just about everything regarding 2015′s superhero mega-spinoff-sequel The Avengers 2 is under wraps. But writer-director Joss Whedon has been slowly revealing the cast list for the movie. We know that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will appear; we know that Iron Man will probably appear, unless the Downey-Marvel contract negotiations go nuclear.
But in a new interview with Empire, Whedon strongly implies that one key character from Avengers 1 won’t be returning. At one point, the interviewers ask Whedon if he’ll come up with any funny random old English words to compare to Loki’s use of the term “mewling quim” in the first film. »

If some of the fan backlash to this year’s biggest box office success so far, Iron Man 3, tells us anything, it’s that the villain of a movie is often just as important, if not more so, than the hero. After all, there’s not much point in having incredible powers if there aren’t any worthy opponents to use them against.
One of the most popular villains to emerge from the Marvel cinematic universe so far has been Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, who was the main villain of both Thor and The Avengers and somehow managed to survive both movies in order to apparently become a reluctant ally in Thor: The Dark World.

No More Loki?: Tom Hiddleston's Loki has tormented Earth's Mightiest Heroes two times now and will do it again in "Thor: The Dark World," but don't expect to see the Asgardian getting into more trouble in the upcoming "The Avengers 2." During a chat with Empire, director/writer Joss Whedon was asked about Loki's use of the British slang "quim" (which is used to describe a woman's anatomy) while he was taunting Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in "The Avengers" and Joss let some casting news slip. "Everyone is going to be looking for the ...

The Avengers 2: Oh, no, no Loki! Despite -- or maybe because of -- playing a major role in The Avengers, Loki (Thomas Hiddleston), the half-brother of Thor, will not appear in the sequel, according to writer-director Joss Whedon. "Imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well," Whedon says. So, the next Marvel team up, due on May 1, 2015, will be Loki-less. Hopefully this doesn't mean he dies in Thor: The Dark World. We like Loki! [Empire] The Amazing Spider-Man 2: We're always happy to report evidence that superheros are environmentally conscious, though we're not entirely sure if a new behind-the-scenes photo shared by director Marc Webb from the production of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 proves that point, even though he captioned it...

For all the Tom Hiddleston fans who need another Loki fix, you're going to have to make due with Thor: The Dark World, because the baddie won't be making a return in The Avengers 2. Speaking to Empire on their podcast, writer-director Joss Whedon explained, "Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for [a quim moment]. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki's not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it's just a nice word." Obviously, he's right—both about the dangers of repeating himself and the quality of the word. Also, if you want to raise the stakes, it's best to go with a villain where failure isn't in his nature. If you need more Hiddleston in your life, »

In an interview with Empire, director Joss Whedon discussed the blockbuster sequel and noted that it won't be the same as its predecessor.
"Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for [a quim moment]," Whedon said, referring to the controversial phrase Hiddleston's Loki says to Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow in "The Avengers." "First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki's not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it's just a nice word."
That statement from Whedon, of course, doesn't necessarily mean Hiddleston will be missing from "Marvel's The Avengers 2" -- after all, Marvel has made post-credit sequences and surprise cameos part of its superhero DNA »

Loki fans, time to break out your sad-faces: the Asgardian Trickster God won't be coming back for "The Avengers 2."
Director Joss Whedon broke the news while speaking with Empire recently, stating that he's not aiming to chase the same successes of his first record-breaking "Avengers" film while developing the upcoming sequel. Tom Hiddleston's fan-favorite villain is a casualty in that regard.
"Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you'll be looking for [a quim moment]," said Whedon. "First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki's not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it's just a nice word."
There you have it: "Loki's not there." Not that Loki doesn't have a role to play in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, »

After playing the chief villain in “Thor” and “The Avengers”, and set to reprise that villainy in “Thor: The Dark World”, Tom Hiddleston’s Asgardian troublemaker Loki will be absent from “The Avengers 2″, the writer/director/Marvel Cinematic Universe architect has now confirmed to Empire. Says Whedon about Loki’s absence from “The Avengers 2″: Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for [a quim moment]. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it’s just a nice word. I know everyone loves Hiddleston as Loki, but this is a very good idea. There’s no need to over expose him, and he’s quickly getting to that point, »
Whedon delivered the news in a podcast interview with Empire;
“Everyone is going to be looking for the Loki-Hulk smash moment and you’ll be looking for [a quim moment]. First of all, imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, Loki’s not there to say those terrible things. Although I do think we should bring the word back, not as an insult, it’s just a nice word.”
The decision not to use Loki in the next ensemble film makes perfect sense. Not only does this mean a new master villain will be used but likely a different kind of threat to the world. If Marvel had gone back to Loki in The Avengers 2, »

For a huge portion of the human race, the only thing worse than the pun I used in title of this article is the fact that Tom Hiddleston will not be returning for The Avengers 2. Joss Whedon confirmed the news during an Empire Movie Podcast to discuss his latest offering, the retelling of Shakespeare’s (Google him) Much Ado About Nothing. Speaking of the superhero blockbuster sequel’s progress, Whedon commented:
I’ve turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody’s very much on board with the exact movie I’m trying to make which is what worked the first time.
But when pressed for a bit more information Whedon said:
Immitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things.
So there you have it. »

We're not sure that, by the time The Avengers 2 arrives in cinemas in the summer of 2015, that this will count as any kind of spoiler. But it does kind of go without saying that if you don't want to know details of who's not going to be in The Avengers 2, you should click away now.
For those who are still here (er, pretty much everyone who clicked on the article in the first place, we suspect), Joss Whedon did a press tour of the UK last week to promote his now-in-cinemas Much Ado About Nothing. And he popped up in the lavish surroundings of the Empire podcast studio at one point. And while talking to the fine folks there, he revealed that there's going to »
Loki, the villain of Marvel’s The Avengers, will not be making a return for the sequel, The Avengers 2. In a podcast interview for Empire, director/screenwriter Joss Whedon has confirmed Tom Hiddleston’s character has not been included in an early draft of the script.
“I’ve turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody’s very much on board with the exact movie I’m trying to make which is what worked the first time,” said Whedon. “Immitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things.”
The brother of Thor and Norse god of mischief ended up being a favorite among Marvel movie fans. Although nowhere near as imposing as his musclebound sibling, Loki’s charisma and eagerness to prove himself made him one »
