Marvel Teases with ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

When Loki walked out onto the stage in Hall H SDCC today in full armor and regale, we were all captivated even though he was making fun of us for standing in line for so long. He was followed by a trailer from 'Thor: The Dark World' which received a huge applause but no other members of the cast were there for us. Disappointed and all the more mystified, we let that slide by as 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' cast Chris Evans came around and told us how comfortable he was getting in playing his role now. He spoke of the fact that Captain America is still adjusting to the complexities of the modern world, because lets face it, its a lot more than just black and white of the 1940's now. There are small nuances here that hint at the way we manage security nowadays, everything's a shade of grey. We also saw some footage of the movie that's directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and features Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes also known as 'The Winter Soldier'.

Up next was a panel for 'Guardians of The Galaxy' starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Benicio Del Toro, directed by James Gunn is still in production and just started shooting 10 days ago in the UK. There was limited information on the movie but we received footage from the movie for the first time and boy did the hall respond with frenzy. Oh, we also loved the fact that the entire cast was flown in from London just for this panel. We always notice that Marvel likes to do things big, so if we know Marvel, they've probably already made enough plans to make this movie a big hit when it comes in to the theaters on August 1, 2014.

But we did mention something about Avengers didn't we? Yes dear readers, Marvel left the best for the last when Joss Whedon walked out onto the stage at the end of the panels while a presentation was put on screen made up of voice overs from the avengers. It ended with a graphic 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' written on the screen. If you're wondering who Ultron is, he's a recent addition to Marvel's comics and is according to Marvel 'a criminally insane rogue sentient robot' created by Ant-Man. We have no idea how it will tie into the Avengers but we will keep you updated on the details of the production once we get them.

Possible Avengers Movie Villain Revealed

Posted on 02 March 2011 by Andrew

Tons of movie websites are scooping what they believe to be a legitimate source detailing the villains of the Avengers movie.  Latino Review has an article here with the original quote.  It basically says that Loki, Thor’s brother, will be the villain in the Avengers, and will most likely use the Cosmic Cube to summon the Skrulls.  This makes sense because the Cosmic Cube is supposed to be found in the upcoming Captain America film.  And obviously Loki will be introduced in the upcoming Thor movie.  Unless you’re a big comic nerd (and I’m really not either) this news may seem very confusing to you, but basically in summary – the Avengers are going to do battle with a bunch of really powerful aliens, and that is pretty darn cool.

A Few Comic-Con Trailers Online

Posted on 29 July 2010 by Andrew

San Diego Comic Con started a week ago, yet footage slowly keeps trickling online.  There is a ton of stuff to sift through, but these three trailers look very promising.  The first trailer is for the new AMC series “The Walking Dead”  and looks like it could be another classic show for their line up.  The show is based off of the popular graphic novel of the same name.

Next is the Comic Con reel for Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.  This was brought online in HD by Apple a few days ago but the footage here is spectacular.  You’ll have to watch it a few times to catch everything.

Last but not least is the footage from the Thor panel that was put online yesterday.  This trailer is cut a lot slower than usual but it gives us a good sense as to what Thor looks like and how the two worlds will be shown in the movie.

There are probably a ton more videos online but these were the three that caught my eye recently.  We have already posted the new Tron Legacy and Let Me In trailers that debuted at comic con as well.

James McAvoy and Tommy Lee Jones Cast in Marvel Projects

Posted on 27 May 2010 by Andrew

There was a bit of Marvel casting news today.  First, Tommy Lee Jones has been confirmed for the upcoming blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger. Slashfilm reports that actress Hayley Atwell  confirmed that Jones is in the movie.  Jones’s role hasn’t been officially released yet, but many believe he will play General Chester Philips.  Also from Slashfilm, James McAvoy has been cast in the upcoming X-Men First Class.  McAvoy will be playing a much younger Charles Xavier, who had been played by Patrick Stewart in the previous films.  This casting choice now gives us an idea of the possible ages of the other X-Men characters.  It seems like they are going for a ‘very’ young look, as McAvoy will look much younger than Stewart has in the last few films.  Matthew Vaughn (X-Men First Class) and Joe Johnston (Captain America) will be shooting their films soon for summer release dates in 2011.

The Avengers May Have a Director

Posted on 13 April 2010 by Andrew

Marvel may have found a director for The Avengers and his name is Joss Whedon.  If you’re not familiar with his name, you may be more familiar with his work.  Whedon Was the main writer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog, and Dollhouse.  He also directed the move Serenity, and was nominated for an Oscar as one of the many writers on Toy Story. Deadline is reporting that Whedon is in final negotiations to take the job.  This news had originally broke on April 1st, but most people assumed it was one of the many movie April Fool’s jokes that were all over the Internet.  Now, it has been confirmed that this was no joke.  Other director’s names like James Cameron and John Favreau had been tossed around.  Whedon is an interesting choice because he has only directed one film, Serenity, which didn’t do well at the box office.  His writing accomplishments can’t be denied though, and he is very popular among the fanboy/comic book generation.  We’ll see how this all plays out.  The directors of Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America all have a lot of say as to what goes into the film.  The writer of The Avengers, Zack Penn, has turned in the first draft of the film which the Marvel executives also have to approve.  Joss Whedon will have a lot of different ideas floating around from these people, so even though he is the director of the film, many other talented people are going to put their signature looks on this.  I think Whedon is a great pick for this movie because it once again shows that Marvel has put their faith in a new director and trusts him to make what may be one of the most expensive movies of all time.  The Avengers will come out on the first weekend in May of 2012.

John Krasinski Out for Captain America

Posted on 09 March 2010 by David

The internet rumor mill has been set ablaze the past couple of days over the casting of the title character for the Joe Johnson directed CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. More recently, the focus has been on the possibility of THE OFFICE star, John Krasinski as a forerunner. Early today, it was announced that he even seemed to be the forerunner, which sparked outrage from basement dwelling Marvel Comics fans anyway. Well, comic fans who have gotten their panties all in a twist can rest easy. Krasinksi is out.

According to SlashFilm, the names now being shot around seem to be Mike Vogel of CLOVERFIELD, and Garret Hedlund of TRON: LEGACY, who were previously on the list. They also appear to be looking at Marvel alumni Chris Evans, who previously appeared as Johnny Storm in the two FANTASTIC FOUR films.

We originally heard from director Joe Johnson that a Captain America would be selected by March 1st. Nine days have now passed since that date, which is leaving us to believe that this is a far more difficult decision than they had originally guessed.

This is a whole lot of hubbabaloo over a super hero I’ve never really cared all that much about. I have to say, Krasinski’s name was the first time I’ve ever really raised my eyebrow in any sort of interest. It’s probably only because of my OFFICE fandom, but I enjoy him quite a bit, even though a majority of the movies he’s been in have been… Well, not so great. I do suppose, however, that this saves THE OFFICE writers from having to explain why new father, Jim Halpert, has suddenly packed on an extra 25 pounds of muscle.

What are everyone’s thoughts? Sound off.

BREAKING NEWS: Spiderman 4 Is Dead – Sony Rebooting The Entire Franchise.

Posted on 11 January 2010 by Andrew

spiderman3

Holy Cow!  Recently there had been rumors of script problems and pre-production quarrels on Spiderman 4.  John Malkovich was supposed to play the villain (Vulture) and the movie was set for a summer release in 2011.  Not anymore.  Today Sony announced that they are terminating the Spiderman 4 movie and taking the franchise in a new direction.  James Vanderbilt will still be the writer, but there will be a new cast, new director, new story.

I don’t think many people saw this coming.  The last three Spiderman movies under Sam Raimi were very profitable and really helped spawn the modern superhero movie era.  Now it seems that they want to go back to basics, and have Peter Parker be in high school again.  This could work out well but a reboot so soon seems like a huge risk, especially since a whole new cast has to be assembled now, and many viewers may be turned off by an entirely new Spiderman just a few years after Spiderman 3.  I think Raimi made the right choice though in dropping Spiderman 4.  He wasn’t very pleased with the studio on the last movie and many fans voiced their displeasure with the movie all over the Internet.  He realized that he couldn’t get this next sequel done before it’s 2011 release date and decided to leave the project altogether.  Maybe his World of Warcraft movie will come much sooner now.  I’ve pasted the full press release from Sony below.

Culver City, CA (January 11, 2010) — Peter Parker is going back to high school when the next Spider-Man hits theaters in the summer of 2012.

Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios announced today they are moving forward with a film based on a script by James Vanderbilt that focuses on a teenager grappling with both contemporary human problems and amazing super-human crises.

The new chapter in the Spider-Man franchise produced by Columbia, Marvel Studios and Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will have a new cast and filmmaking team. Spider-Man 4 was to have been released in 2011, but had not yet gone into production.

“A decade ago we set out on this journey with Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire and together we made three Spider-Man films that set a new bar for the genre. When we began, no one ever imagined that we would make history at the box-office and now we have a rare opportunity to make history once again with this franchise. Peter Parker as an ordinary young adult grappling with extraordinary powers has always been the foundation that has made this character so timeless and compelling for generations of fans. We’re very excited about the creative possibilities that come from returning to Peter’s roots and we look forward to working once again with Marvel Studios, Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin on this new beginning,” said Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

“Working on the Spider-Man movies was the experience of a lifetime for me. While we were looking forward to doing a fourth one together, the studio and Marvel have a unique opportunity to take the franchise in a new direction, and I know they will do a terrific job,” said Sam Raimi.

“We have had a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration and friendship with Sam and Tobey and they have given us their best for the better part of the last decade. This is a bittersweet moment for us because while it is hard to imagine Spider-Man in anyone else’s hands, I know that this was a day that was inevitable,” said Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures, who has served as the studio’s chief production executive since the beginning of the franchise. “Now everything begins anew, and that’s got us all tremendously excited about what comes next. Under the continuing supervision of Avi and Laura, we have a clear vision for the future of Spider-Man and can’t wait to share this exciting new direction with audiences in 2012.”

“Spider-Man will always be an important franchise for Sony Pictures and a fresh start like this is a responsibility that we all take very seriously,” said Michael Lynton, Chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures. “We have always believed that story comes first and story guides the direction of these films and as we move onto the next chapter, we will stay true to that principle and will do so with the highest respect for the source material and the fans and moviegoers who deserve nothing but the best when it comes to bringing these stories and characters to life on the big screen.”

Thor Steps in for Spidey

Posted on 07 January 2010 by David

Tuesday came bearing news that because of apparent script issues, Sony would likely be ditching their proposed May 6, 2011 release date for the latest entry of their hugely successful SPIDER-MAN franchise.

With the first weekend of the 2011 summer movie season now up for grabs, Variety reports that Paramount has done some shuffling, and another Marvel Comics hero will be taking Spidey’s place. Originally slated for May 20th, Kenneth Branagh’s fantasy/super hero epic THOR will be bumped up two weeks to fill the slot.

Disney also appears to have made a quick move, setting the release of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES to Thor’s old spot.

With such a high-profile sequel following closely it’s wake, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of numbers a B-list comic character like Thor will be able to pull from movie-goers. It’s easy to assume that everyone at Paramount and Marvel have their fingers crossed that lightening will strike twice, and that the film will be as well received commercially and critically as 2008’s IRON MAN.

Personally? Even with the respectable cast and director, I think I’m going to have to see a trailer surface before my interest is really sparked.
