Quite a few notable set photos have arrived showing the creation of upcoming films featuring Marvel Comics heroes. One set shows the practical military outfit worn by Anthony Mackie as he plays the Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Another shows what appears to be a stunt double made up to stand in for Paul Giamatti as the Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And a final video shows part of a confrontation between Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) from the same film.
All the pics are after the break, in order to preserve secrets of each film for those who want to wait for at least an official photo or trailer reveal. Read More »

Either Joss Whedon is messing with us or he just let a huge piece of Avengers 2 information slip. The writer/director was at the premiere of Iron Man 3 in Hollywood Wednesday and was asked for an update on the highly anticipated 2015 sequel:
I have actually finished a draft and I’m redoing it now. I think it’s in really good shape. We’re in a very good place…I’ve been writing and meeting with actors and we’re starting to storyboard, all the preliminary processes. This is the part where it’s all still fun.
Sounds like the film is well on its way. But here’s the even more revealing quote. Whedon was asked about the process and slipped this little gem in:
I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.
Could it be he actually let that info out? After the jump, read more about it along with some new set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and a new image from Thor: The Dark World. Read More »

A decade after X2, Bryan Singer is busy directing superpowered mutants once again. X-Men: Days of Future Past entered production about a week ago, and thanks to Twitter we’ve received a steady stream of updates on the project.
This weekend, we learned that the already crowded cast had added one more star in the form of Adan Canto, a Mexican actor best known for playing Paul Torres on Fox’s The Following. Additionally, Singer posted a fresh photo of original trilogy star Halle Berry back in the Storm role, albeit with a new suit and haircut. Hit the jump for more.

Agent Coulson might have had a few ideas about Captain America’s suit in The Avengers, but recent Marvel Comics have influenced his suit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The first batch of set photos from the sequel have just hit the internet, showing Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in some kind of industrial situation. They’re pretty uneventful.
The real takeaway is that Evans is wearing a brand new suit in the film, one that is sleeker and darker than his last. It so happens to be the same suit that was floating around in images last week. It carries a heavy influence from the “Heroic Age” story arc, specifically the Steve Rogers: Super Soldier mini-series.
Does this give us a big hint to what happens in the film? Check out the images and discuss below.. Read More »

Based on the set photos we’ve seen so far, Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone) don’t seem to look too much different in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 than they did in The Amazing Spider-Man, and MJ (Shailene Woodley) looks like a normal young woman. But one key character that’s been shrouded in mystery until now is the film’s big villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx).
Today we finally have our first peek at the character, and while he’s definitely an eyeful he doesn’t look anything like the traditional green-and-yellow version pictured above, either. Hit the jump to see what he does look like.

We’ve still got a ways to go before we can see Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or David O. Russell‘s untitled Abscam project. Heck, it’ll be months before we even get real trailers for either of them.
But in the meantime, we can pore over set pics to see what the filmmakers and actors have been up to during production. Based on those, Reeves and his team are enjoying getting closer to Mother Nature, while Russell’s stars seem to be engaged in a contest to see who can rock the craziest hair. Hit the jump to out the images.

Maybe it’s because Iron Man 3 is coming so soon, maybe it’s because we’ve started to speculate about the rest of Marvel’s Phase Two, or maybe it’s because X-Men: Days of Future Past is on the way. Whatever it is, my level of excitement for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine has started to dissipate in the last few weeks. It probably has something to do with the first trailer, which didn’t quite wow audiences, and seemed to go away from the original Chris Claremont story we’d believed The Wolverine was based on.
The film can certainly still save itself. It won’t be out until July 26, and the film’s director took to Twitter to show some interesting behind the scenes photos from the shoot. No Hugh Jackman here, but you do get an idea of some of the film’s gorgeous location filming and supporting cast. They’re extremely promising. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
From the looks of it, Bryan Singer has just given us our first glimpse at a mutant from X-Men: Days of Future Past. The director of the upcoming X-Men “Inbetweenquel” tweeted an image that is obviously the character Beast, who was played by Nicholas Hoult in X-Men: First Class (as seen above) and by Kelsey Grammer in X-Men: The Last Stand. Hoult will be reprising the role in the 2014 film so, it would seem, the image is likely him in some kind of makeup test.
How does it differ from his First Class look above? Check the image out below. Read More »
