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 »
Spoilers! Warning! Danger! I’m going to discuss some questions raised in Captain America: Civil War, which means some plot points will get spilled. If you haven’t yet seen the film – it’s just out on Blu-Ray – you may not want to proceed.
There are a lot of things I enjoyed about Captain America: Civil War but what I liked best was the question that was at the center of the narrative. During an action in Legos involving Cap and some members of the Avengers, there is a mistake and an explosion and innocent bystanders get killed. This, coupled with the human collateral damage witnessed in previous Marvel films, causes members of the United Nations to create The Slovenia Accords – named after the site of the massive destruction in Avengers: Age of Ultron. »

Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is going to serve as a make-shift Jurassic Park reunion. We know that Jeff Goldblum has signed on to play the villainous and eccentric Grandmaster. Now comes word that his old co-star Sam Neill has also come aboard the latest Marvel Phase 3 adventure, which is currently being shot in Australia.
It doesn't appear that Sam Neill will have a large role. And it isn't known if Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum will even share any scenes together. The actor was only on set for a few select days. Though he's not allowed to say too much about his participation, or Marvel's highly trained snipers will take him and his family out. Neill was talking with Shortlist about his comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople. And it just so happens to be directed by Thor 3 mastermind Taika Waititi. About joining the Marvel family, Sam Neill offers this.

This shouldn't come as too much of a spoiler, but towards the end of Marvel Comics' Civil War storyline, Captain America bites the big one. And for months leading up to the release of Captain America: Civil War in theaters this past May, many fans believed Chris Evans' freedom fighter would face a similar fate. That never came to pass, though. And War Machine was the only Avenger who really even came close to dying, though everyone lived. Today, directors Joe and Anthony Russo discuss why that panned out in such fashion.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was speedster Quicksilver who didn't quite make it to end credits. And it showed that Marvel was willing to sacrifice a few of its characters for the greater good of storytelling. So many fans walked into Civil War expecting to see at least one major character's arc come to an end. »
Avengers: Infinity War is the beginning of the end for this era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thanos first appeared in The Avengers‘ mid-credits scene and has since shown up in the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Marvel used those and other movies to tease his eventual clash with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. However, based on a new report, that encounter may not play out as some fans expected.
Rather than adapting the Infinity War storyline that the movie is named after, it’s said that it will actually be based on Infinity Gauntlet. That story featured the Mad Titan using the Infinity Stones to wipe out half of all life in the universe in the hope of winning the affections of his one true love, Death. It’s something along those lines that we’ll apparently end up seeing in Avengers: Infinity War, »

Dystopian fiction imagines worlds where society has devolved from its ideal form into a frightening, undesirable place. Tom Paton’s film “Pandorica” takes this cue and is set in a world plunged in a new dark age where humanity has reverted back to its primal state. A trio of youths — Eiren (Jade Hobday), Ares (Marc Zammit), and Thade (Adam Bond) — have been selected to take part in the leadership trials of The Varosha Tribe, with the winner becoming the tribe’s leader. They must battle dark forces in order for one of them to win, but they soon realize that fighting each other might be the only path to victory.

The first video, titled Important, has been released on Whedon's Save the Day website, as well as its YouTube page.

With the Blu-ray and DVD release of Warcraft less than one week away, a deleted scene has been released, which features a special musical cameo. U.K. singer Chesney Hawkes is seen briefly singing his hit song "The One and Only", which topped the U.K. singles charts and cracked the Billboard Top 10 in America. The musician is playing this tune when Callan (Burkeley Duffield) and Khadgar (Ben Schnetzer) enter a tavern.
Warcraft became a box office anomaly this summer, earning just $47.2 million domestically, but a whopping $386.3 million internationally for a worldwide tally of $433.5 million, from a $160 million budget. It has also become the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time at the worldwide box office. This video game adaptation also shattered box office records in China, earning a whopping $46 million on its opening day in the country, taking down Avengers: Age of Ultron's record of $28 million last summer. »

Idris Elba will be reprising his role as Roland from the movie, as will Tom Taylor, who plays Jake Chambers, and will appear as part of a framing device bookending the central story about a younger Roland.

“It’s not about attacking because Donny’s real good at attacking himself,” says Whedon to The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s about getting people to vote, because it’s frightening the apathy that people are treating the most crucial election of their lifetimes with.”

Ever since filming began on Spider-Man: Homecoming in Atlanta this past June, we've seen plenty of set photos and videos from director Jon Watts and star Tom Holland. Today we have a new video from Jon Watts, which doesn't feature Tom Holland or any other cast member, but it does tease that some aerial stunt work is happening on the set. The brief video shows a "To Set" sign pointing up revealing a helicopter above him.
Unfortunately, we don't see much else in this Instagram video, and the director wouldn't shed any light on what this helicopter was being used for. The helicopter did have a wire or a cable hanging down from it, which could mean that someone might be rappelling from the helicopter, but we don't know for sure. We don't know how much more filming is left on this new Spider-Man adventure, which has been set for »
During Marvel's Comic-Con panel, the studio debuted a hilarious new video that explained why Chris Hemsworth's Thor wasn't part of the epic battle in Captain America: Civil War. The video, which introduces fans to Thor's Australian roommate Darryl Jacobson (Daley Pearson) became quite popular with Marvel fans, which can now be found on the bonus features of the Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray and DVD release, but fans still want more of Darryl, and it seems they may get it. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi teased in a new interview that Darryl may just end up in Thor: Ragnarok.
The video revealed that Thor needed some down time after the epic battle in Avengers: Age of Ultron, so he went to Australia, where he became roommates with Darryl, along with a special cameo from Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. The video has become so popular that an online »
Ever since production started on Spider-Man: Homecoming, star Tom Holland has been sharing numerous videos and photos from the set, but his latest may have revealed a big spoiler. Yesterday, the actor shared a photo of himself, co-star Jacob Batalon and friend Harrison Osterfield at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. While it seems like a seemingly innocent photo, it may reveal that an iconic Avengers location will be revisited in Spider-Man: Homecoming. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been shooting in Atlanta since late June, so, at first glance, there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary with Tom Holland, Jacob Batalon, who plays Ned Leeds in the movie, and Harrison Osterfield posing for a photo at the Porsche headquarters in Atlanta. The Instagram photo doesn't show any signs that this facility is being used for the production, but »
The upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming is going to be fascinating for reasons that have little to do with the film. It's going to be the first co-venture between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios, and the ultimate fruit to come from the blockbuster agreement reached between the two Hollywood titans early last year. It's also going to answer a lot of questions. Since the terms of the agreement have been a little fuzzy and, at first, it seemed like Sony still wanted to have a big say in the new Spider-Man films and would maintain its ownership of the character's film rights, people have wondered how directly tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man: Homecoming would be.
As time goes by, and more information becomes available, it becomes more and more apparent that the only involvement Sony has is having its name in the opening credits. This is a Marvel Studios film, »

It’s good to be bad. THR.com is reporting that Harley Quinn herself, Margot Robbie, just signed a first-look deal with Warner Bros. As part of the arrangement, Robbie will executive produce the Quinn spin-off film that’s been in development since before Suicide Squad even hit the theaters. The flick is reported to focus not only on Harley, but a number of other female DC characters. Robbie has a number of movies in development, most notably I, Tonya, the Tonya Harding biopic and Queen of the Air, about trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel. Suicide Squad, which focused heavily on Quinn, was a big, but not quite huge, hit for Warner Bros. The anti-superhero movie has grossed just over $700 million worldwide. A nice number to say the least, but when you consider comparable ensemble flicks like Avengers: Age of Ultron brought in double that amount and Captain America: Civil War raked in $1.1 billion, »
