Captain America The Winter Soldier - Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers

We don’t know plans for the Captain America 3 ending, and frankly wouldn’t say if we did. The film is still two years away and hasn’t started production yet. With The Winter Soldier coming to Blu-ray, however, the Russo Brothers just happen to be talking about the film. Some of the biggest questions they’re fielding surround the fate of Chris Evans‘ character. The last film gave him two formidable characters to whom he might pass the Captain America shield: Sebastian Stan‘s Bucky and Anthony Mackie‘s Falcon. With Evans’ Marvel contract running out soon, that pass seems like a viable option.

It becomes even more of a viable option when you look at Marvel’s first threequel, Iron Man 3, which wrapped up Tony Stark’s story in a nice bow with a fourth film nowhere to be seen. Could Chris Evans’ Captain America story be ending on May 6, 2016 with a new hero continuing the story? Yes and no, say the directors. Read More »

No Jokes in DC Movies

Years back, there was a real divide between DC and Marvel. DC was the stoic old guard, Marvel the young upstart. Despite the fact that the ’60s saw some incredibly wacky characters grace the pages of DC comics, the conception amongst comics fans, especially when modern comics fandom came of age in the ’80s and ’90s, was still that DC was the “serious” house and Marvel the playground.

While it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, that characterization has been carried forward into the films produced by DC and Warner Bros., and those from Marvel Studios. Inspired by Christopher Nolan’s films (which were inspired by the wave of ’80s comics that included Frank Miller’s vision of Batman), DC’s films are monochromatic and relatively grim. Zack Snyder isn’t the guy one turns to for “fun.” Marvel’s movies are colorful and unabashedly fun.

Now a report says there’s an actual “no jokes in DC movies” mandate at Warner Bros., which could enforce the differences between DC and Marvel movies in a set manner. (Update: While two sources support the “no jokes” argument, Seth Rogen says otherwise.)

avengers age of ultron images

If we had any complaint about the first Avengers, it was that there wasn’t nearly enough of Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk or Jeremy Renner‘s Hawkeye. Fortunately, Kevin Feige has already promised to remedy that lack in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the latest batch of images indicate that he plans to deliver.

Hulk and Hawkeye figure prominently in these new stills, along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and the guy who bosses them all around. No, not Nick Fury. Director Joss Whedon.

Take a peek at the new Avengers Age of Ultron images, and read Whedon’s comments on Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor, after the jump.

birdman reviews

When we heard Michael Keaton was doing a new superhero movie, everyone got interested. When we heard he’d be joined by Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, the film became anticipated. Then we heard it would be directed by Alejandro González Inarritu, in one single take, it became one of our most anticipated films of the year. (That trailer didn’t hurt either.)

Now that film, Birdman, is out there. It had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival and the reviews were overwhelmingly, almost embarrassingly positive. Read some early Birdman reviews below. Read More »

Kevin feige X-Men Days of Future Past

Though it’s based on a Marvel Comics story, X-Men: Days of Future Past isn’t a Marvel Studios movie. But that doesn’t mean the president of Marvel Studios can’t enjoy it all the same. Kevin Feige, who helped produce the original X-Men trilogy, praised the latest installment as a “very good” way to kickstart the franchise.

Flash poster

Is Barry Allen drunk, or just a vigorous self-promoter? In this Flash poster for The CW’s new TV show, the hero is depicted running down a street in Central City. For some reason, he’s running in a zig-zag pattern that occasionally points him backwards. But whatever; the guy is so fast that he’ll still get where he’s going with time to spare.

And The Flash is meant to be fun, after all, so what’s a little time spent running just for fun? Speaking of, this poster is also decorated with a few little easter eggs. Some point to the series’ companion show, Arrow, while others hint at future developments for the series. You’ll need an even more high-res version to pick everything out, but get started via the one below. Read More »
