Marvel Black Hood Of Death Theory

I love wacky film theories. It doesn’t matter to me that the filmmakers most likely didn’t intend these interpretations, but I find it interesting the connections some people make within the movies they enjoy. It could be as ridiculous as a one line cue which leads some people to believe that Chris Pratt’s character in Jurassic World could be the young boy from Jurassic Park, how all Pixar movies exist within the same universe, that Stan Lee Is Playing the Same Character in All His Marvel Cameos, or even us trying to predict the future with a theory on How The Marvel Cinematic Story Might Connect Through Phase 3. Or it could be a much more well reasoned theory, like an explanation of why Top Gun is a deeper movie than you think.

Over the weekend I received an email from a /Film reader named Andy from the UK. He has a theory that all of the Marvel Phase Two movies feature a huge easter egg that we’ve all been missing: the black hood of death. This theory falls on the more ridiculous end of the spectrum but I still find the observation fun. And at very least, this shows that Marvel is over-using the black hood “in disguise” cliche in phase two. Hit the jump to read Andy’s Marvel black hood of death theory.

That helpful guide to Disney’s animated remakes, spin-offs and sequels we reblogged over this weekend is already outdated. Walt Disney Pictures is developing a live-action feature film remake of their 1963 animated fantasy film Sword in the Stone with Game of Thrones writer/producer Brian Cogman working on the screenplay.

the wasp

Yes, its true that you do get to see which involves Janet Van Dyne’s version of The Wasp in Ant-Man, via a flashback sequence (I won’t say anything more here). But the real question everyone is wondering is when will we see Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) , daughter of the original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and the original Wasp Janet Van Dyne, put on The Wasp outfit as she does in the comics? I asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and actually got an answer.

 The First Two Children To Visit Disneyland

Today is the day, Disneyland celebrates its 60th birthday. We’ve all seen video of Disneyland’s grand opening from July 17th 1965, but have you ever wondered what happened to the first children to enter the latest of Walt Disney‘s first theme park? The story is pretty interesting — they weren’t even supposed to be at the park’s opening and were given lifetime passes by Walt Disney himself. The image of the two kids being greeted by Walt Disney can still be seen on Disney California Adventure’s latest edition of their spectacular “World Of Color” water show. Hit the jump and find out.

Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview

A couple weeks ago I got a chance to sit down with director Peyton Reed and talk about his new film Ant-Man. I’ve been a fan of Reed for a while now, from his fun 2000 comedy Bring It On (which was basically Pitch Perfect with Cheerleading) to his work within the Back to the Future franchise (he was involved in the Universal Studios ride, the animated series, and even directed the behind the scenes documentaries for the sequels). Here are some of the things I talked to Peyton Reed about:

  • His first attempt trying to direct a Marvel film in 2003 with a Fantastic Four adaptation that never happened
  • Ant-Man looks like it has the most VFX shots out of any of the Marvel films, But it does’t
  • How they made the microscopic scenes so photorealistic
  • What he believes he brought to the movie that wasn’t in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish‘s draft
  • Why other Marvel characters were added to the story (possible spoiler warning, although its shown in tv commercials and trailers)
  • How Peyton ended up doing voice work on episodes of Beavis and Butthead
  • Will he be involved in any of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary festivities
  • How Did Marty McFly influence Ant-Man

You can read about all of that and much more in my Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview, after the jump.
