Michael B Jordan

Director Josh Trank and the Fantastic Four have been quietly filming their big Marvel movie in Louisiana for the past few months. I say “quietly” for two reasons. One, we haven’t seen a lot of set photos of the stars in costume or anything. And two, co-star Michael B. Jordan agrees. In a new interview with MTV, the actor talked about filming the movie as being in “our own world.” He also talked about how Trank is changing the movie on the fly and that it’s less about superheroes and more about people learning to live with their disabilities.

As for that quiet, it’s probably going to end next week. The new Entertainment Weekly strongly suggests the full Fantastic Four cast will be at Comic-Con. Below, read the Michael B Jordan Fantastic Four quotes. Read More »

Japan Building Real Life Snowpiercer Train

Snowpiercer

Bong Joon-ho‘s big screen adaptation of Snowpiercer imagines a massive luxury Cruise train powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels around the world.  The film is a science fiction story that uses this construct to tell a story of haves and have-nots stuck on a train that has saved them from an ice age that has surely killed most, if not all, of humanity on the planet.

While I was watching the movie, I wondered to myself why hasn’t anyone tried to make a luxury cruise-style train. Sure, I understand a global-connected track is not possible, almost as impossible as a perpetual-motion engine that runs the fictional train. But the idea of a luxury Cruise ship-like train seemed interesting. I can definitely imagine rich people spending loads of money to live in luxury as they watch the countryside pass by them at high speeds. Why have we not seen anything like it created? Is it that comically unpractical?

Well, Japan has announced the development of a new luxury train, called “The Cruise Train” which could be the predecessor of a real life Snowpiercer train. Details and photoa after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Ronan (header)

We’ve already seen the scruffy outlaw heroes and the rigid law enforcement types of Guardians of the Galaxy. But no outer-space superhero adventure would be complete without some baddies, so today it’s time to meet the guys and gal who’ll be giving the Guardians hell.

Marvel has revealed three more Guardians of the Galaxy character posters focused on the villains — specifically, Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou), and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Flip through ‘em after the jump.

Marvel Comics’ New Captain America Is a Black Man

Last night, Marvel Entertainment’s Joe Quesada stopped by The Colbert Report to announce that (just as we suspected) Steve Rogers’ longtime pal Sam Wilson would be taking over as Captain America in the comics.

Of course, that leaves Wilson’s old role of Falcon wide open. Quesada fortunately knew just the guy for the job, jokingly appointing Colbert himself as the new Falcon and even presenting him with some artwork. See it, and get to know the new Captain America, after the jump.

Avengers 2 The Vision

Minor spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron below.

Tuesday, it was finally confirmed what we’d assumed for months. In Marvel Comics, Ultron is created by Hank Pym. In Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron, however, he’ll be created by Tony Stark. His original purpose? To lead an army called the Iron Legion against the bad guys, in order to give the Avengers a rest. It does not go well. As for Vision, another character forever linked to these characters and played by Paul Bettany, his origin will be more traditional. Like in the comics, in the film Vision will be created by Ultron “to show he has the power to create life, too.” Read More »
