Over the summer, Al Pacino saw and loved Guardians of the Galaxy. He saw it with his kids and was incredibly impressed with the work Marvel Studios was putting on screen. “I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up,” he told Deadline. He then said he’d be open to appearing in a Marvel movie if he could “understand [it] in terms of how I fit in it.”
That opened the door, and in a new interview, Pacino reveals he had a meeting with Kevin Feige to discuss the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The last time a star said they had a meeting like this, Vin Diesel ended up as Groot. So will Al Pacino appear in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie? What character will he play? And what, specifically, did he say on this matter? Read all the Al Pacino Marvel madness below. Read More »

Pixar’s Inside Out will be all about the emotions guiding 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), but it’ll also feature some of the outside influences that figure into her thinking — namely her parents, who’ll be voiced by Kyle MacLachlan and Diane Lane. And the film will go inside their minds as well.
Hit the jump for more about the Inside Out parents, including details on what their emotional headquarters will look like and new comments from writer/director Pete Docter about the story. Read More »
If projections hold, Marvel’s 2015 comic book, Star Wars #1, written by Jason Aaron with artwork by John Cassaday, will be the best-selling comic book in the past two decades. Rumor has it a million copies of the book could be sold when it’s released on January 14.
Part of the reason for that is Marvel will be telling a new story about what Luke, Han, Leia and the group did between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back — that’s largely an unexplored few years in Star Wars lore. Another reason is Marvel is going straight Nineties with the variant covers. At least a dozen variant covers of the comic will be released on newsstands, and several retailers have commissioned their own variants to be sold only in their stores, bringing the total over 30! It’s going to be a huge event.
Below, we’ve complied all of the Star Wars 1 variants we’ve found so far. Check them out below. Read More »
One of the biggest and most surprising films of the year, Guardians of the Galaxy, comes out on Blu-ray on Tuesday. It’s a fun occasion for Marvel fans because the studio’s Blu-rays are always so much fun. We covered some of what makes this release so cool in the past, but we also talked to James Gunn about it.
Gunn is the co-writer and director of the film and, on the occasion of the Blu-ray release, we got to talk to him about the surprising success of the film. We also chatted about some of his regrets, common misinterpretations of parts of the movie, the marketing and his next film, 2017′s Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
We’ve previously pulled a few of these quotes, but, below, read our full James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy interview. Read More »
We don’t know much about the plot of Marvel’s Phase Three, but we know how it’s going to end. Ever since the end of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, we knew the mad titan Thanos was going to become a factor. The most powerful villain in the Marvel Universe was on the hunt for the Infinity Stones he so famously acquired in the classic comic story, Infinity Gauntlet. Putting all of the gems together would give Thanos all the power in the universe, which isn’t a good thing for the universe.
So through a bunch of Marvel movies we saw these gems and their terrible destructive powers. Then in this year’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we finally heard from Thanos himself. He’s played by Josh Brolin and will play a big factor going ahead. Unfortunately, as of this moment, Thanos has a grand total of zero Infinity gems, but that’s going to change by the time Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hits theaters May 2018. The title alone suggests Thanos will finally have what he desires and, in a new interview, Brolin all but confirmed that. Read the new Josh Brolin Thanos quotes below. Read More »
