Jeff Goldblum movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Jurassic Park,’ ‘The Fly,’ ‘The Big Chill’
Jeff Goldblum has returned to one of his most successful roles with Dr. Ian Malcolm in the film “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Goldblum first played the character in the blockbuster film “Jurassic Park” back in 1993. The actor has had a highly successful career in film, television and theater for over 40 years.

Goldblum’s film career started in a particularly auspicious manner since his first four films were all highly regarded works of the early 1970s: “Death Wish”, “California Split”, “Nashville” and “Next Stop, Greenwich Village.” He continued to work in film and television for the next four decades and even returned to Broadway a few times, most notably in the highly regarded Martin McDonough play “The Pillowman.”

Along the way Goldblum has picked up a number of award nominations including an Oscar nomination for Best Live Action Short Film for “Little Surprises.” He received an Emmy nomination for a guest

Age Of Ultron Almost Featured A Skyscraper-Sized Mega Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t the greatest McU entry, nor is it the worst; instead, it arguably exists in the same pocket of space as Ant-Man and the original Thor – a fun movie, for sure, but not one you’d rush to see again.

For Age of Ultron, that mostly comes down to James Spader’s mechanized villain, who felt totally uninspired when compared to the tempestuous unpredictability of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who ruled over The Avengers with an iron fist and a very pointy helmet.

A by-product of Tony Stark’s ingenuity, Ultron played on the whole ‘Pinnochio’ trope ad nauseam (“there are no strings on me”), culminating in the moment when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes banded together to stop Ultron in Sokovia. The collateral damage would ultimately spawn the Sokovia Accords and, through time, Captain America: Civil War, but at least based on some concept art over on Reddit,

That Massive Avengers 4 Plot Leak Has Now Been Debunked

Well, we probably should have seen this coming.

Currently bracing for a summer of reshoots, it’s fair to say that Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers 4 has been draped in a thick veil of mystery ever since it was first revealed to the world as Infinity War – Part 2. That subtitle has since been ditched entirely in favor of, well, nothing, and the subsequent radio silence surrounding its moniker has only provided yet more fodder for the rumor mill.

Speaking of which, a massive plot leak hit the web the other day, claiming that Avengers 4 will herald the curtain call for Marvel’s Phase One heroes, after all. And it didn’t end there, either, as the alleged intel went on to highlight a series of interesting plot points which, quite frankly, sounded a bit too wild to be true. Turns out that’s because they weren’t, as the leak’s now been debunked.

Thor: Ragnarok Director Has Best Response After Its Labeled Gayest Marvel Movie

Thor: Ragnarok Director Has Best Response After Its Labeled Gayest Marvel Movie
Thor: Ragnarok was a breath of fresh air for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and especially for the Thor character. The over-seriousness of the first two installments gave way to a colorful and humorous approach that completely reinvigorated actor Chris Hemsworth's love for playing the mighty superhero. Director Taika Waititi encouraged adlibbing lines, which added to the fun element and Hemsworth wanted to bring that into Infinity War as well. Apparently, some of those new elements came off as gay since a new article has now labeled Thor: Ragnarok as the gayest McU movie, leading to the perfect response from Waititi.

Vulture compiled a list of the gayest Marvel movies and Thor: Ragnarok is number one, for more reasons than any of the other previous 18 films in the McU. The author notes that he ranked the movies as to, "whether they tickled my queer sensibility," which means that Ragnarok ticked

Iron Man Shows Off His Giant New Armor In Marvel Comics

In case you hadn’t heard, Marvel kicked off their latest initiative last month, thereby relaunching many of their marquee titles under the “Fresh Start” banner. No doubt capitalizing on some of this year’s biggest blockbuster films, books such as Avengers, Venom, Thor and Black Panther are rolling back to #1 in order to provide accessible jumping on points, to name but a few.

Of course, it was only a matter of time before the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s golden boy joined the party as well, once again being granted his own series in the form of Tony Stark: Iron Man. Introspective as it sounds – and it probably will be – it makes sense to actually put Tony’s name in the title and begin anew, as we’ve seen the likes of Riri Williams and even Victor Von Doom under the helmet in recent years.

Does ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Take Place Before or After ‘Avengers: Infinity War’?

Does ‘Luke Cage’ Season 2 Take Place Before or After ‘Avengers: Infinity War’?
(Note: There are No spoilers or plot details from “Luke Cage” season 2 discussed here, but we do describe the ending of “Avengers: Infinity War” below. So if you inexplicably clicked on this without having seen the movie and don’t want to know what happened, please bow out now.)

We’re nearly two months removed from one of the most shocking endings of any major blockbuster — that of “Avengers: Infinity War,” which saw Thanos succeed in collecting the Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life in the universe. Since Earth is part of the universe, and Marvel’s Netflix shows are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it makes you wonder if, or how the new season of “Luke Cage” will deal with it.

The answer is it does not. It’s hard to say exactly when “Luke Cage” season 2 takes place, but it certainly happens before half

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp running time revealed

With the North American release of Ant-Man and the Wasp fast approaching, Heroic Hollywood is reporting that the official running time for the Marvel sequel has been set at 118 minutes – one minute longer than the 2015 original.

Assuming this is accurate, Ant-Man and the Wasp will become the first sub-two hour Marvel release since 2016’s Doctor Strange, and the sixth shortest McU movie to date after The Incredible Hulk (112 minutes), Thor: The Dark World (112 minutes), Thor (114 minutes), Doctor Strange (115 minutes) and Ant-Man (117 minutes).

Huge Avengers 4 Story Leak Says It Focuses On Thanos And Nebula

The curious minds of Reddit have cobbled together a series of alleged story clues pertaining to Avengers 4, and they may well shed new light on Marvel’s super-secret blockbuster.

Currently bracing for a summer of reshoots, it’s fair to say that the Joe and Anthony Russo sequel has been draped in a thick veil of mystery ever since it was first revealed to the world as Infinity War – Part 2. That subtitle has since been ditched entirely in favor of, well, nothing, and the subsequent radio silence surrounding Avengers 4‘s moniker has only provided yet more fodder for the rumor mill.

Speaking of which, a Redditor by the name of ‘abigfriend’ (h/t Screen Rant) has put forward a new report claiming that Avengers 4 will herald the curtain call for Marvel’s Phase One heroes, after all.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Screenwriters Give Their Advice on Fixing the DC Extended Universe

Marvel Cinematic Universe Screenwriters Give Their Advice on Fixing the DC Extended Universe
The DC Extended Universe (Dceu) has seen its fair share of critical misfires, from “Batman v. Superman” to “Suicide Squad” and “Justice League,” but all hope isn’t lost. During an appearance on Kevin Smith’s podcast “Fat Man on Batman,” Marvel Cinematic Universe screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus offered their advice on how the Dceu can be saved, and it turns out less is more when it comes to building a gigantic movie universe.

“I would look at what Marvel did, out of necessity, in that they didn’t have their A-list characters [at the beginning],” Markus said. “They didn’t have Spider-Man, they didn’t have the X-Men, and they went down the line and found [other characters].”

Markus pointed to Iron Man kicking off the McU a decade ago. While the character has since become one of the most popular superheroes in the world, Iron Man wasn’t a guarantee for

New Avengers 4 Theory Suggests There Was A Split In The Marvel Universe

As crushed as many of us were by the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, it was always pretty obvious that we haven’t seen the last of all the heroes who turned to dust before our eyes. Surely the McU hasn’t dropped Black Panther after just one hugely successful solo outing. And doesn’t Tom Holland already have another Spider-Man film planned?

While time travel remains by far the most prominent theory on how Avengers 4 is going to dig some of the franchise’s most cherished characters out of the hole dug by Infinity War, one user on Reddit has an alternative idea that would see the Marvel universe branch into two – which is pretty intriguing.

Here’s how he explains it:

Everyone who got dusted in Infinity War is still alive…in a separate universe.

Awesome Marvel Fan Art Imagines Chris Hemsworth As Loki

If you’re an McU fan, you might be familiar with the fact that Tom Hiddleston initially auditioned for the role of Thor. He wasn’t deemed a right fit for the God of Thunder, but someone had the bright idea to cast him as Loki, Thor’s mischievous brother, instead and the rest is Marvel history. But what if there’s a parallel universe out there where this was reversed, and Chris Hemsworth got to play Loki?

That’s what digital artist Boss Logic has imagined in his latest piece of Marvel fan art. Standing in front of the Avengers logo, the Hemsworth-Loki is based on the post-Ragnarok Thor and sports short hair but with a thicker, darker beard. His armor is fairly similar to Thor’s typical outfit but it’s given a few Loki-esque twists, including a black color scheme and the green cape over his left shoulder.

Thor: 20 Behind-The-Scenes Photos That Completely Change The Movies

Movie magic is more real than ever. Thanks to modern technology, what filmmakers can render onscreen is often remarkable. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has taken advantage of this technology to create visually stunning films. While critical and fan reception has varied between each film, Thor, Thor: The Dark World, and Thor: Ragnarok have all managed to put visual marvels on display for audiences around the world.

Behind-the-scenes photos offer insight into how this movie magic becomes a reality. The results are fascinating, revealing the painstaking detail that goes into every single scene and setting. Asgard and Sakaar are still treasures to behold onscreen, but it's difficult to ever see these settings and the epic scenes they behold the same way after seeing how they were put together.

The photos reveal the inevitable antics between directors, cast, and crew. These antics were especially prevalent in the making of Thor: Ragnarok given the quirky,

Natalie Portman Calls Former Friend and Harvard Classmate Jared Kushner a 'Supervillain'
As a member of the Marvel Universe, Natalie Portman knows a thing or two about supervillains — and she recognizes those qualities in a very famous former classmate from Harvard.

The Oscar winner and Thor actress, 37, got candid about her relationship with her former friend and fellow Harvard alum Jared Kushner on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“Unfortunately it’s not very — there’s not a lot funny to say about someone you were friends with becoming a supervillain. So, it’s not funny,” she said.

“He said in some interview that all of the friends he’s lost through politics is like exfoliating.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Projected for $75 Million Box Office Debut

In just under a month, Marvel will release its third and final movie of the year, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and today we have the first box office tracking data, indicating a much more modest result than Black Panther or Avengers: Infinity War. Early tracking data suggests that Ant-Man and the Wasp will pull in $75 million in its opening weekend, a solid jump over the $57.2 million earned by 2015's Ant-Man in its debut. Ant-Man and the Wasp won't have too much competition either, with only Universal's The First Purge opening on July 4, two days ahead of its July 6 opening.

While this debut would certainly be a welcomed one for Marvel, it still pales in comparison to the massive numbers put up by Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Regardless, no one was expecting Ant-Man and the Wasp to break the bank at the box office, but it may also do better than expected,

Avengers 4 Fan Art Reimagines A Classic Scene With New Costumes

Though we don’t know all that much about Avengers 4 at present, it does seem likely that the conclusion to Phase Three of the McU will bring the franchise full circle. At the end of Infinity War, due to Thanos’ Snap, pretty much the only heroes left alive were the original six founding members of the superhero group. That’s Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye, for those with short memories.

We wonder, then, if we’ll get a scene which reunites these heroes in the midst of battle, calling back to the first time they did this in 2012’s The Avengers. But what would such a sequence look like? Well, an awesome new piece of fan art has got us covered on that front.

Avengers 4 Storyline Is Like Lost Season 4 Says Evangeline Lilly

Avengers 4 Storyline Is Like Lost Season 4 Says Evangeline Lilly
Evangeline Lilly has revealed that there's some parallels between the fourth season of Lost and the upcoming Avengers 4, and it has a lot of Marvel Cinematic Universe fans freaking out. In a new interview promoting Ant-Man 2, Lilly talked about how excited she was to be a part of the whole Infinity War and Avengers 4 story arc, noting the aforementioned similarities. This new bit of news has some pretty big implications for the McU and everything project moving forward for Phase 4.

Season four of Lost is when the multiple timelines, present and future, were presented, dramatically altering the landscape of the hit ABC series. Even more interesting is the fact that the show started to discuss the idea of time travel. From what we have seen behind-the-scenes, Avengers 4 will have to have some kind of time travel or other timelines, especially to address the deceased characters who have been spotted on the set.

20 Things That Make No Sense About The Avengers

Before they were the driving force of the most successful film franchise of all time, the Avengers had enjoyed a long and enthralling life within the pages of the Marvel comics. The first incarnation of the superhero team made their debut in Avengers #1 back in 1963, and it consisted of five founding members: Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Of course, over the next five decades, the Avengers line-up has expanded, changed, and been relaunched multiple times. They’ve continued to be a staple of the comic book world - and then the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned them a newfound recognition with 2012's The Avengers.

Now, just a brisk six years later, the idea of a superhero team-up movie no longer seems like an insurmountable task, and Marvel has continued to up the ante with this year's Avengers: Infinity War — a coalescence of the last ten years and 18 films,
