Hulk movie rights - Hulk Age of Ultron character header

For the last thirty years, no one seemed to give a shit about a movie adaptation of The Incredible Hulk. Universal made two attempts to bring the character to the big screen, once in 2003 with director Ang Lee and star Eric Bana and later in 2008 with director Louis Leterrier and star Edward Norton. Both films failed to become big box office hits, the later despite a cameo from hot-off-Iron Man Robert Downey Jr., reprising his role as Tony Stark.

No one cared about the Incredible Hulk until writer/director Joss Whedon brought the character to the big screen in The Avengers with Mark Ruffalo playing Bruce Banner. And since that film hit in 2012, everyone and their mother has asked Mark Ruffalo, Joss Whedon and Marvel head Kevin Feige when we’ll see the big green guy get his own movie. And we’ve heard many excuses over those years. And now we might have an answer as to why Marvel is not making a Hulk stand-alone movie right now. Find out who owns the Hulk movie rights and lets take a trip down the history of developments for the Ruffalo Hulk stand-alone movie.

Daredevil fight scene

One of our favorite moments from Daredevil is the climactic fight sequence which ends Episode 2. Its probably my favorite television action sequence in recent years. So when I got a chance to talk to the cast and crew of Daredevil, all I wanted to know was how they pulled off that sequence. For those of you who haven’t yet watched the Netflix television series, the second episode ends with Daredevil in full vigilante mode, attempting to break into a baddie’s hideout to save someone.

The sequence lasts five and a half minutes long, with a three-minute fight in the middle, and is incredibly well choreographed. When I first saw it I almost stopped breathing as I realized the beauty of this single take. I’ll admit, it looks like the shot could be visually stitched together using three different takes (as was done in Birdman) but and according to those involved, the fight scene you see is the result of one lone single shot. Lets find out how they did that Daredevil fight scene, after the jump.

disneyland hatbox ghost

It was just yesterday afternoon that we learned that Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro‘s long-in-development big screen adaptation of Walt Disney’s classic theme park ride The Haunted Mansion. When del Toro announced the film at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International, he revealed that the Hatbox Ghost would be a pivotal character in his adaptation. The hatbox ghost is a Disneyland legend, a character that appeared originally in the attraction but mysteriously disappeared shortly after the attraction’s debut. Good news for Disneyland fanatics like me, the Mouse House have confirmed rumors that they will be bringing the Disneyland Hatbox Ghost back to his home starting in May, seemingly as part of the theme park’s 60th anniversary diamond celebration.

Disney Pixar's X-Wings

This is probably the biggest nightmare for Star Wars fans after it was first announced Disney was buying Star Wars. Would the Mouse House turn the beloved science fiction fantasy epic into a generic neutered animated franchise for children? So far it doesn’t appear to be in the plans. Sure, they have the Star Wars Rebels animated series on Disney XD, but thats actually good despite the rather low budget animation. But Big Bee Studio imagined what would happen if the people who made Cars & Planes got their hands on Star Wars. The result is a fake trailer for a new movie titled Disney Pixar’s X-Wings. And while this is horrifying, the Disney toy department obviously had similar ideas which thankfully will remain toys for now. After the jump you can watch the Disney Pixar X-Wings movie trailer.
