Kick-Ass

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.

Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »

Mark Ruffalo captain america

As it stands right now, Captain America: Civil War will include every single Earth-bound superhero in the MCU minus two: Thor and Hulk. They’re even adding in the new people like Ant-Man. So why are those two characters not in the movie? Thor, at least, has a solo movie that should cover his absence but Hulk does not. Last we saw the mean, green machine he was in a S.H.I.E.L.D plane hoping to get lost from the world.

According to Mark Ruffalo, the actor behind Hulk, he hasn’t heard anything about the movie except from one person: Robert Downey Jr. Tony Stark himself told Ruffalo he was in Civil War, but Ruffalo says he hasn’t heard from anyone else beyond that. Read the Mark Ruffalo Captain America Civil War quotes and more below. Read More »

Michelle MacLaren directing Star Wars

At one point, Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren was signed on to be at the helm of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s adaptation of Wonder Woman. However, creative differences resulted in MacLaren leaving the project, with former Thor: The Dark World director Patty Jenkins stepping up to replace her.

However, now it seems Michelle MacLaren may be taking steps to replace another departed director on a different high profile franchise project. News surfaced today that MacLaren has met with Lucasfilm about potentially directing the second Star Wars Anthology spin-off that director Josh Trank left behind recently.

Even though audiences are very well acquainted with the Marvel cinematic universe at this point, the television side of Marvel Studios is still in its early stages.
