Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Deleted Scene

There has been a lot of buzz about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ever since the most recent trailer arrived this week. Even before the trailer came out, there was one particular snippet teasing its impending release that didn’t even appear in the new assembly of footage from the sequel. In fact, director James Gunn has already confirmed that this is a deleted scene which had already been cut from the movie.

Avengers: Infinity War and the yet to be titled fourth Avengers films are shooting concurrently. With one of the biggest star-studded ensemble casts in the history of film, we expected that the films might break the record for the biggest budget movie of all time. But a new report suggests that the movies may have a combined production budget of $1 billion.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Ego

The latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer offered our first look at Kurt Russell‘s Ego the Living Planet in real, live, flesh-and-blood form. As we’ve known since Comic-Con last year, Ego is the biological dad that Peter has been searching for. But now that the mystery of Star-Lord’s parentage has been solved, we’re left with still more questions about the guy. Like: why is he here? What does he want with Peter? For that matter, do we know Ego is Peter’s dad? All we have to go on right now is his word, and we don’t know how trustworthy this guy is.

While combing through the new promo, we started to form some ideas about the role Ego could play in the movie, based on the footage we’ve seen so far, the interviews conducted with the cast and crew, and the character’s comic book history. Learn more about him below.  Read More »

If you think we’ve got a lot of superhero shows now, just wait — there are still more coming down the pipeline, hoping to join all the ones we already have. Today, two of the more prominent ones took big steps forward. ABC’s Inhumans has just found its leading lady in Graceland alum Serinda Swan, while Fox’s untitled X-Men spinoff has located another mutant in The Goldbergs‘ Natalie Alyn LindRead More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer breakdown

Last night, Marvel Studios premiered the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And because we are nothing if not predictable, you know what that means: it’s time to comb through this footage frame by frame and figure out what it tells us about the new movie. (The fact that it doubles as an excuse to coo at all the new shots of Baby Groot is just the icing on the cake.) So watch the trailer here if you haven’t already, and then join us below to break this thing down.

Doctor Strange Visual Effects

When it comes to blockbuster movies, visual effects companies can create (and destroy) anything. Sequences where entire cities are destroyed or an entire creature created with visual effects happen regularly, and the technology is so advanced that they pretty much all look incredible. The more impressive trick in visual effects these days is when one of the companies responsible for these effects makes it so that you aren’t even aware there’s a visual effect happening.

In the case of Doctor Strange, there are endless visual effects, mostly because of how our characters can manipulate the world around them. However, some of the more impressive visual effects you may not have realized were there to begin with. A Doctor Strange visual effects reel was recently published online, and I was floored to learn of the existence of more extensive visual effects than I had initially though, including some of the best digital doubles of actors you’ve ever seen. Watch below. Read More »

Your favorite galaxy-saving a-holes are back… or they’re about to be really soon, in any case. Marvel Studios has just dropped the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, which assembles the whole gang: Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel). In typical fashion, they’re flying by the seats of their pants — but if we know them, they’ll manage to get it together just in time to save the MCU from completely imploding.

Check out the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer below, which includes our first look at Kurt Russell as Ego. Read More »

Doctor Strange Honest Trailer

In Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme manages to survive a gnarly car accident, Mads Mikkelsen in full villain mode, an extremely feisty cape, and a third-act climax that isn’t a big CG battle in the sky. But can he withstand the cutting scorn of the Screen Junkies team?

… I mean, probably. Strange knows actual magic and has a fancy time-turning gem. And he’s played by an Oscar-nominated A-lister and controlled by Marvel Studios, one of the most reliable hit machines in Hollywood history. This dude’s gonna be fine. But the point we’re trying to make here is that it’s Strange’s turn to go under the knife and get the Honest Trailers treatment. So click through to watch the Doctor Strange Honest Trailer below.

Iron Fist images / BTS (header)

Netflix has more original content coming up in the next couple of years than we can count, but one of their next big productions — and one we’re especially curious about — is Iron Fist. Not only is it the last of the four standalone Marvel superhero dramas leading up to the Defenders crossover event, its hero looks very different from the others we’ve met so far. Whereas Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage have all been gritty street-level types, Danny Rand is a billionaire business scion with mystical martial arts superpowers. So… what’s that about? How’s he gonna fit into this (relatively) grounded universe? Who are his new buddies? And what do those Justin Timberlake curls look like in action?

We won’t really find out until Iron Fist actually premieres in a couple of weeks, of course. But while we wait, a new batch of images and behind-the-scenes photos are here to give us a little taste. Check ’em out below.  Read More »

The tricky thing about Marvel’s Inhumans characters is that their leader, the closest thing these stories have to a main character, is a man of very few words. Mainly because those words can literally tear down cities and turn mountains into rubble. When it come to engaging in conversation, Black Bolt a very selective fellow.

Marvel and ABC’s Inhumans television series is gearing up for production soon and Blackagar Boltagon (yes, that is his real name) has officially been cast. Anson Mount, best known from his work in AMC’s Hell on Wheels, will play the tight-lipped superhero.
