Marvel’s Avengers E3 Reveal Disappoints | Flickering Myth Podcast Mini

After years of anticipation, Crystal Dynamics finally pulled back the curtain on ‘The Avengers Project’ last week – and it’s fair to say that the reaction to the Marvel’s Avengers reveal was a little underwhelming. Here’s the thoughts of Allen Christian and Gerald James in this excerpt from the Flickering Myth Podcast’s E3 Special (or listen to the full episode here)…

When Chris Hemsworth opened up about his anxiety woes

Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth says he feels more comfortable about showing his real self to the world now, and that is what propelled him to open up about his anxiety woes.

"I think the more comfortable I got just doing press in general over the years and interviews...You feel more comfortable about showing a bit more of yourself," Hemsworth told a publication?when asked about his decision to open up about his anxiety issues.

"But for me, it was a part of the journey and being able to talk about what I have learnt. I remember when I started acting, hearing Anthony Hopkins in an interview saying that he thinks that each job will be his last... I found great comfort in that. I was like, maybe there is something which brings anxiety and (is) just part of the process," he added.

The Sleepy Summer Box Office of 2019 Continues

Let’s start with this weekend's good news: Happy Father’s Day to all dads past, present and future!

Now for the bad news: let's discuss the business at this weekend’s box office.

Without an Incredibles 2 or Jurassic World: Lost Kingdom to power it –as was the case one year ago-, the June box office continued to be a wasteland of high profile, low grossing product. The latest misfires arriving at multiplexes across North America were Sony’s Men In Black: International, Warner’s latest Shaft sequel and the Amazon Studios’ comedy Late Night.

Business should improve somewhat next weekend when Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 arrives on the scene with an opening forecasted to be north of $150 million.

Sony executives may want to check and see if those mind-erasing guns used in the Men In Black series actually exist following the awful start for Men In Black: International.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: Hands-on with the Co-op Superhero Brawler

Bernard Boo Jun 14, 2019

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is is a superhero extravaganza. Here are our hands-on impressions of the game...

If you’ve played the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games over the years, you’ll feel right at home with the latest iteration in the series, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Published by Nintendo and developed by Team Ninja, the game is a Switch exclusive, supports up to four-player co-op, and features an impressive selection of heroes from across the Marvel universe.

I played the game for about 15 minutes at E3 2019, and the roster was what got me immediately excited to dive into gameplay. McU mainstays are of course represented in characters like Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, and Captain America. But also joining the fray, to my delight, are comics icons like the X-Men, The Defenders, Captain Marvel, and the Fantastic Four. Even Miles Morales is in this thing,

Chris Hemsworth unveils video of him singing Johnny Cash as Fat Thor

  • JoBlo
In Avengers: Endgame the God of Thunder, Thor, went through quite a dramatic change, reeling from his own failures and clearly very fragile after botching his takedown of Thanos. Dressed in sweat pants and donning sunglasses indoors, this puts him in the perfect position to whip out a guitar and start singing a soulful ballad that puts his emotions on his sleeves, and actor Chris Hemsworth took the time to do that by laying down a rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Hurt”…

Men In Black: International Movie Review Pointless, charmless and instantly forgettable

Men In Black: International review is here. The 2019 American science fiction action movie released today in India and USA is directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Men In Black: International is a sequel/spin-off from the Men In Black film series, which is loosely based on the Malibu/Marvel comics of the same name by Lowell Cunningham. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in lead roles. Is the fourth installment worth?, let?s find out in the movie review of Men In Black: International.

Immediate reaction when the end credits rolls???????????????????

Two things that need to be changed immediately.

First - The attitude of production house in cashing on the charm of the original and making movies just for box office returns doing no service to the legacy and taking the fans for granted.

Second: The belief of the audience that

Men In Black: International – Review

The Summer of sequels marches on at the multiplex again this week (hey last Friday I reviewed two of ’em). Oh, this is a sci-fi spectacular which also has a slight Marvel connection. Men In Black was a comic book series created by Lowell Cunningham for an up and coming company called Malibu back in the “indie comics craze’ of the 1990s. They were so “on the rise”, that they caught the attention of Marvel who promptly bought them right up…swallowing up their line of titles and characters. Smart move, because Steven Spielberg’s Amblin grabbed the screen rights to that aforementioned series. That first flick in 1997 was a surprise smash prompting a wave of toys and a cartoon TV show, but not generating a “so-so” sequel until 2002 (this is a sporadic franchise). After ten years another sequel “completed” the “trilogy”. Well, not quite complete. There have been rumblings

Watch Chris Hemsworth Cover Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’ as ‘Lebowski’ Thor

Watch Chris Hemsworth Cover Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’ as ‘Lebowski’ Thor
Chris Hemsworth brought back “Lebowski” Thor on Wednesday — complete with his potbelly and scraggly beard — to perform a rendition of “Hurt” for his Twitter followers.

“Not sure why everyone’s so worried about Thor, he’s fine guys…,” the Marvel actor tweeted alongside a video of himself on the “Endgame” set playing an acoustic version of the Johnny Cash song. After being defeated by Thanos in the latest Russo brothers movie, the Norse god sank into a deep depression that resulted in weight gain and heavy drinking, surprising fans who were accustomed to the actor’s normally chiseled body.

In his Variety cover story, Hemsworth said his co-stars enjoyed teasing him in between takes. “People just kept coming up and cuddling me like a big bear or rubbing my belly like I was pregnant,” he said. “Or trying to sit on my lap like I was Santa Claus. You get a lot of affection.

Chris Hemsworth Reveals His First Job Was 'Cleaning Out Breast Pumps' at 14
Chris Hemsworth may be starring in blockbuster Hollywood movies, but things weren’t always so glamorous for the Thor actor.

The 35-year-old Aussie revealed his first job before he ever made it to the big screen, while playing a game of “True Confessions” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night.

“My first job was cleaning out breast pumps,” Hemsworth deadpanned. “It was repairing them as well, occasionally. Any pump, you know, there’s a motor with a belt, like a rubber belt for the suction.”

Flabbergasted, Fallon and comedian Kumail Nanjiani then interrogated the Men In Black: International

‘Orphan Black’ Continuing In New Installment On Serial Box Featuring Tatiana Maslany’s Voice
Orphan Black, the sci-fi hit that netted Tatiana Maslany an Emmy for her shape-shifting lead performance, is continuing with a new written and audio installment that will feature Maslany’s voice.

Serial Box, a start-up that offers subscribers access to serialized stories in both e-book and audio form, is teaming up with Temple Street, a division of Boat Rocker Studios, to extend the show, which ended its U.S. run on BBC America in 2017. The companies said the new episodes will be the “length of an average commute” and will appear weekly.

The project follows Serial Box’s recent teaming with Marvel Entertainment for original stories based on Black Panther, Jessica Jones, Black Widow, and Thor.

For the new Orphan Black installment, Serial Box has signed Malka Older as showrunner and Mishell Baker, Lindsay Smith, and Heli Kennedy as writers. Employing the approach of a TV writers room, Serial Box

What Is Quentin Tarantino's Favorite Marvel Movie in the McU?

What Is Quentin Tarantino's Favorite Marvel Movie in the McU?
Quentin Tarantino has chosen his favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. The Pulp Fiction director is a comic book movie fan, but he admits to slacking a bit over the past few years. With that being said, he's going back to watch the four years of McU movies and can already say he has a favorite out of the ones he has seen so far. Tarantino is currently preparing to release his highly anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood this summer.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been taking up a lot of Quentin Tarantino's free time over the past few years. From developing and writing the script, shooting the movie, and then editing, the director hasn't had much time for anything else. With that being said, he's looking forward to seeing Avengers: Endgame and is going back to watch some of the last installments and discovering a new favorite.

How the McU Was Made: ‘Thor: The Dark World’, or Marvel’s Final Major Speed Bump

Leading up to Marvel’s The Avengers, the question on everyone’s minds was whether this interconnected universe of Marvel movies would work. But after The Avengers, which was a monumental success, the studio then had to turn to continuing to build out its individual franchises. First up was Iron Man 3, a fairly safe bet given the success of the first two movies. But second out of the gate was a Thor sequel, following an initial film that had a few issues and a character that was still somewhat ill-defined. Indeed, as evidenced by the creatively difficult production …

Stan Lee May Cameo In Marvel’s Avengers Video Game

Going back years, it’s become expected that True Believers be treated to a Stan Lee cameo whenever the latest film based on a Marvel property hits theaters. Granted, it hasn’t happened in every instance, but we’re all guaranteed to smile whenever “The Man” suddenly pops up as some random character. Whether it be in a production from either Disney, Fox or Sony, there was always a chance for the legend stopping by.

Unfortunately, the recently released Endgame was the last cameo Stan was able to put in before his untimely passing. Still, the possibility remains that we may see him once the much buzzed about Marvel’s Avengers video game drops next year.

While speaking with creative director Bill Rosemann, Gamespot asked him whether Lee’s virtual counterpart will appear in Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ interactive adventure just as he did in Spider-Man’s Playstation 4 opus. Although

Marvel Fans Angry That The Avengers Game Won’t Be On Nintendo Switch

It might not be the most powerful console on the market – in fact, it’s definitely the weakest – but there’s no denying that the Nintendo Switch is a force to be reckoned with. While the big N has historically struggled when trying to attract third-party developers to join their ecosystem, their newest hybrid handheld hasn’t suffered the same fate. This year alone, the Switch has already received plenty of old and new Resident Evil games, and earlier today, CD Projekt Red confirmed what some thought impossible – Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will also be ported to the platform.

Of course, for every title which gets a second life on Switch, there are plenty that don’t make the transition. Yesterday, Square Enix pulled back the curtain on Marvel’s Avengers, which is set to release during the first half of 2020. This new action game allows players to take control of Iron Man,

Marvel’s Avengers Fans Want To Know Where Hawkeye Is

Hearing the phrase “Square Enix” might evoke memories of some of the best JRPGs from yesteryear, but if you caught a glimpse at the publisher’s E3 conference yesterday, you’ll know that there was plenty of western games on display. Sure, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is shaping up to be something truly special, but towards the end of the live stream, all eyes and ears were focused on a few key creative staffers from Crystal Dynamics, who were showing off Marvel’s Avengers for the first time.

Needless to say, yesterday marked a watershed moment for superhero fans. Sure, there have been plenty of standout video games in the past, but for every solid title, there are plenty of cheap tie-in products that completely miss the mark. Going off the initial reveal trailer, Marvel’s Avengers is anything but – not only will gamers be able to play as Iron Man,

Marvel's Avengers Game Trailer Finally Arrives from Square Enix

We finally have a first full-length trailer for Marvel's Avengers. This game has been in development for some time, dating back in its earliest days when Marvel Entertainment signed a deal with studio Square Enix back in 2011 to develop video games based on the company's vast library of popular characters. Now, we finally have a glimpse at what that partnership is going to bring us, and it looks like an action-packed, hero-filled blast. The game was revealed during Square Enix's E3 presentation. They had been teasing the reveal leading up to the event and it was one of the most highly-anticipated projects being unveiled this year. And they didn't disappoint.

The trailer kicks off with a celebration of Avengers Day in San Francisco, with Iron Man, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, Thor, and Captain American all there to celebrate. We then get to see the heroes in action as the Golden Gate bridge is attacked.

Avengers: Endgame Writers Have No Idea If Thor Will Be In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the stories of most of the original six Avengers, but it teased a possible exciting new direction for Thor. At the movie’s close, the God of Thunder is seen hitching a ride back into space with the Guardians. He even dubs the team “the Asgardians of the Galaxy.” That suggested he was there to stay, meaning many fans took it as red that Thor would be a part of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

However, writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus appear to have confirmed that they didn’t intend for the scene to be interpreted this way. While speaking on the Empire Podcast, the duo admitted that they have no idea if Thor will have a role in the upcoming threequel from James Gunn. Though obviously, it has to be said that the pair wouldn’t spill the beans even if they did.
