Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi, and the unnamed Star Wars: The Force Awakens band in Maz Kanata’s cantina which is composed of Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert “Sticks” Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.
But what if the rest of the characters we know in the Star Wars universe all had albums of their own inspired by a variety of popular albums from Earth? One artist has recreated some familiar album covers from the likes of Eminem, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Band, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, but using characters from the Star Wars universe in place of the artists and their album artwork.

Photos from the set yesterday revealed Thor (Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) had returned to Earth, but we didn’t know what they were doing besides looking devilishly handsome.

Even though the hype surrounding Frozen has died down since it was released late in 2013, that doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there for Disney’s popular musical from Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Plus, the hype will return once Frozen 2 gets into full swing. We just heard the cast is waiting for the script to be finalized before they start recording sometime this year. In the meantime, there are also some LEGO Frozen animated shorts on the way. But if you need your Frozen fix now, we’ve got something cool for you.
Cyclops Print Works has collaborated with artist Brittney Lee to create two different Frozen prints featuring Anna and Elsa. What’s cool about these particular prints is that Brittney Lee was also a visual development artist on Frozen, having designed all of Anna’s dresses and hairstyles, not to mention Elsa’s signature braid, shoes and parts of her dress. So these two Frozen prints come straight from one of the artists who made these characters look stunning on the big screen. Check them out below. Read More »
Alan Tudyk was a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. Most of us know the very talented and very likable actor from Firefly, Wreck-it Ralph, A Knight’s Tale, Death at a Funeral, and other fine titles, but with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we’ll soon see him in (probably) his biggest movie to date. We’ve already learned a little bit about his character, K-2SO, but Tudyk recently shared more information about his droid.
Below, learn more about the K-2SO backstory.

Even though director James Gunn has a comfortable home at Marvel Studios after directing Guardians of the Galaxy and the forthcoming sequel, he has no involvement with Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, Gunn takes it upon himself now and then to keep the rumor mill controlled and comic book fan rage in check.

Find out what James Gunn had to say about the Spider-Man Homecoming Mary Jane casting controversy after the jump. Read More »
Last summer, Marvel Studios brought Ant-Man to the big screen, and the tiny superhero turned out to be a big hit, changing the pace by being a smaller, more isolated comic book flick. It has been particularly refreshing after The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up being a little too big for its britches, and the film’s success resulted in Marvel quickly changing up their schedule to allow for a sequel called Ant-Man and The Wasp to land a spot on the calendar in 2018.
Since we’re a couple of years out from the film’s set release, Marvel is making more moves to fill out the cast by bringing back one of the most entertaining parts of the film: Michael Pena.

With so many characters in the Marvel cinematic universe, it’s a no-brainer that some of them will recur in multiple movies. However, when it comes to characters who are part of the Avengers, having them appear in each others’ standalone franchises is a bit of a bigger deal.

There aren’t any Doctor Strange story spoilers below, but if you don’t want to know who may be making this rumored Doctor Strange Avenger cameo, don’t read after the jump. You’ve been warned. Read More »
