Talking to Newsarama about taking over writing duties on Avenging Spider-Man (a title which features the controversial new status quo of having Doctor Octopus as Spider-Man), Christopher Yost was asked by the site what it has been like to make the transition from comic book writing to penning the screenplay for Thor: The Dark World. "I've been working on Thor since February, I think, and its the biggest project I've ever worked on. The transition has been fine, but the practical "Let's actually go out and shoot this thing" aspect of it has been huge. [Laughs.]" As for his experience on set so far, Yost was careful not to give anything away about the plot of the movie. He did however have this to say about what it has been like to be in London and still write for Marvel Comics. "It's been amazing, I'll leave it at that. As far »
Stan Lee, arguably the greatest single contributor to comic book movies, is celebrating his 90th birthday today. Although most of Lee's executive producer credits on feature films have come within the last decade or so, he's been in the TV and movie business since the late 80s. Oh and he dabbled in comics for a little while too. Lee boasts co-creator status on the likes of Iron Man, Hulk, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Thor, Daredevil and many others. As a figurehead, Lee led the transformation from Marvel Comics into the multimedia conglomerate it is today. So send him a birthday wish over @TheRealStanLee and hit the jump to check out all of his cameos in Marvel movies over the years. If you think that Lee is done with churning out more Marvel-related properties, you have only to look at his upcoming slate of films to know that that's not the case. »

Less than a week ago, we heard tell that the casting pool for the role of Peter Quill (aka Star Lord) in Guardians Of The Galaxy had been whittled down to just three people: Jim Sturgess, Zachary Levi, and an unnamed third person. This was according to a Variety article found here, but if it seemed a bit off to you as Zachary Levi already has an entirely different role in Thor: The Dark World, then... well, you were right. Writer/director James Gunn took to Facebook and discounted »

The "Black Swan" and "Twilight" beauties (respectively) are the toast of the town as they top the list of Forbes' Best Actors For the Buck, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Portman ranked No. 1, bringing in $42.70 in box office returns for every dollar the studios spend on her, with K.Stew close behind with a $40.60 return on investment. Despite headlining such big franchises as "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," Stewart was bested by Portman mostly due to the incredible $329 million worldwide gross of "Black Swan," which cost all of $13 million to produce.
Also, believe it or not, "No Strings Attached" cost, like, ten bucks and earned $150 million. Were you one of the people who contributed to that?

Natalie Portman's only film appearance in 2012 came as a still photograph in Joss Whedon's The Avengers - the actress dedicating her time to raising her newborn child - but her hiatus came after a period of being just about everywhere. Following her Oscar win for Black Swan in 2010, she released three new films in 2011 (No String Attached, Thor, Your Highness) and had two indies finally find their way into theaters (Hesher, The Other Woman). She has a decent 2013 planned, set to return as Jane Foster in Thor: The Dark World and play a part in Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups, but she is also entering the year being declared Hollywood's Best Actor For The Buck. Forbes has published their annual list of the most bankable stars in the movie industry and Portman has taken the top spot, beating out a number of Hollywood's most popular actors. The »
In some alternate universe, there is a version of "Thor: The Dark World" that is directed by Tom Hiddleston. We'll be seeing the one directed by Alan Taylor next year, but apparently there was a time when Hiddleston was considering following in "Thor" helmer Kenneth Branagh's footsteps and transitioning from actor to director in the upcoming Marvel sequel.
Hiddleston caught up with Empire (via ComicBookMovie.com) in a recent interview, and the magazine asked him if he'd ever had any interest in directing. He said he did, and even approached Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about potentially helming "Thor: The Dark World."
"I did ask, half-jokingly, Kevin Feige about directing 'Thor 2' and he said, 'Do you have something to show me?' I said no. He said, 'If you made something and showed me, I might consider it,'" Hiddleston said. "But it's better for the world that he said no. »

Has "Guardians of the Galaxy" honed in on its two lead contenders for Star-Lord? Maybe… but maybe not.
Before the holiday weekend, Variety reported that two front-runners for the role of Star-Lord have emerged: "Cloud Atlas" actor Jim Sturgess, and "Chuck" star Zachary Levi. Both names are familiar in the Marvel news circuit lately, with Sturgess previously rumored for "Guardians," and Levi already in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Fandral the Dashing in "Thor: The Dark World."
The fact that Levi is already a part of the Marvel movies should immediately cast some suspicion on his chances for playing Star-Lord. Further casting doubt is the following tweet from "Guardians" director James Gunn, caught by Comic Book Movie (and since removed from Gunn's feed): "Almost everything in the Variety article on the Guardians of the Galaxy casting (and the following articles based on it) was/is inaccurate."

After actors become successful, they attempt to branch out into other parts of the business, like producing, writing and directing. Ben Affleck has done it and so has Kenneth Branagh, who directed "Thor" and brought on Tom Hiddleston to play the villainous Loki. Now that Hiddleston is becoming a household name, he is getting interested in getting behind the camera. In fact, he approached Marvel head Kevin Feige about directing the upcoming "Thor" sequel. The actor recently sat down with Empire magazine and was asked whether he has any interest in directing. "Yes, I do," he replied. "I did ask, half-jokingly, Kevin Feige about directing 'Thor 2' and he said, 'Do you have something to show me?' I said 'no.' He said, 'If you made something and showed me, I might consider it.' But it's better for the world that he said no. It would be such a responsibility, »

As we come to the penultimate Week in Spandex of 2012, we'll get things underway with the first of 2013's Five big superhero movies - Iron Man 3. Along with the arrival of a new still showing a battered and bloodied Tony Stark, actor Robert Downey Jr. has taken a few moments to discuss his admiration for director Shane Black (who has replaced Iron Man and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau at the helm of the forthcoming sequel), as well »
Marvel Studios’ most eclectic upcoming project, Guardians Of The Galaxy, is closer to finding its leading man, the character of Peter Quill or Star-Lord. James Gunn and company had narrowed the list to 5 names last we checked in, but now that list is down to two: Chuck’s Zachary Levi and Cloud Atlas’ Jim Sturgess. Levi wasn’t apart of the first list of five names, and due to his role as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World, his addition comes as a mild surprise, but the guy has all the makings of a future star. So, of course, does Sturgess, who has seemed on the cusp of big bucks in Hollywood since 21 and Across The Universe.
I like them both, especially Levi, to the point where I almost want them to play Bigger roles in the Marvel Universe, but who’s to say that Star-Lord won’t become a »

What is Casting Couch? It’s the movie news column that’s easing into Christmas with a cup of coffee and some casting reports. Let’s take this one step at a time. Marvel Studios is on such a roll now that any movie they make that ties directly into their upcoming Avengers 2 is going to be a big deal—even if it’s based off of a comic book that nobody’s ever heard of like Guardians of the Galaxy. So, the competition among young actors to get cast as the Guardians’ leader, Star-Lord, is pretty fierce. According to Variety, that competition has been narrowed down to two guys. The trade reports that Jim Sturgess is the sole survivor of the original crop of five actors the studio screen tested for the role, and Zachary Levi impressed so much playing the smaller role of Fandral in Thor 2, that Marvel is looking to give him a »

1.) Marvel has narrowed their search for the lead role of Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy down to Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Zachary Levi ("Chuck") and a third mystery contender. Interestingly enough, Levi wasn't one of the five names to appear on a short list for the role last month. He is, however, already filming his role as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World, replacing Joshua Dallas, who played the character in the first Thor film. Seems like it could lead to confusion if Levi winds up playing both Quill and Fandral, but this thing is likely far from over. Marvel is targeting an August 1, 2014 release for Guardians of the Galaxy with James Gunn (Super) at the helm. Variety 2.) Box-office phenom Chad Michael Murray is negotiating to join the ever-selective Nicolas Cage in a remake of the Christian-themed film Left Behind. It would appear the "One Tree Hill" star »

It's not uncommon for actors to make the transition into directing, often with great success (Ben Affleck (Argo) and Kenneth Branagh (Thor) for example). Talking to Empire Magazine recently, Tom Hiddleston was asked whether or not he would have any interest in directing a film at some point in the near future. "Yes, I do. I did ask, half-jokingly, Kevin Feige about directing Thor 2 and he said, 'Do you have something to show me?' I said no. He said, 'If you made something and showed me, I might consider it.' But it's better for the world that he said no. It would be such a responsibility, but I think I'd enjoy it." Marvel Studios are known for making some unusual choices when it comes to their directors, so it certainly wouldn't be too shocking if they were to give Hiddleston a shot at helming one of their comic book adaptations. »

Fans worried that Marvel were going to feature the same actor in two different superhero roles in their cinematic universe can most likely breath a sigh of relief. According to Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn, Variety's recent report stating that Jim Sturgess and Zachary Levi (who will also play Fandral in Thor: The Dark World) were the front-runners for the lead role of Star Lord might not have been entirely accurate.. You will note that he does say Almost everything. Could this mean that one of those actors is actually up for the role, or is he referring to something else? Variety's report also mentions a mysterious third actor who is also in contention, so perhaps that's the part that is true? Gunn is currently being quizzed by all and sundry on Twitter so if he lets anything else slip we'll update. »
