Ant-Man wouldn’t be a Marvel movie if it didn’t contain a bunch of fun easter eggs and references to comic book creators, storylines and side characters. We’ve chronicled many of the references and hidden details in previous Marvel movies (like this in-depth dissection of Guardians of the Galaxy’s many easter eggs), and now its time to take a look at Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man.

Before We Go Trailer

Chris Evans put down his shield for a while in December 2013 to direct his first feature, and you can now see the results of his efforts via the Before We Go trailer. The film stars Evans and Alice Eve as a pair of people who come together in Manhattan when Eve’s character deals with the theft of her purse, and nice guy Chris Evans comes gently to the rescue.

You might wonder if romance blossoms between the two, and given that the stars are Eve and Evans, you probably don’t even need to watch the trailer to figure that out. If you’re eager to see what Evans does when he’s not suited up as Captain America, check out the Before We Go trailer below. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War promo art

Production is underway on Captain America: Civil War right now down in Atlanta, Georgia, and with a whole bunch of The Avengers (new and old) on the cast roster, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty massive flick. And while the movie doesn’t arrive until May 6th, 2016, one of the cast members is wasting no time driving a wedge between our superheroes.

Jeremy Renner, who plays the skilled archer and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton (aka Hawkeye), took to Twitter yesterday with a little welcome card that teases the coming battle between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

As exciting as going to the movies is, making one is often the opposite. It’s a slow, meticulous process that is more often than not boring instead of fun. There are so many moving parts, and so many people are invested mentally and financially, filmmakers just need to make sure everything is done right. The bigger a movie gets, the longer it takes to make sure that’s the case.

Movies don’t get bigger than Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a two part epic that is expected to feature an interplaterary battle between Thanos, The Avengers and maybe even the Guardians of the Galaxy. On paper, it’s everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to since 2008. A movie that big will necessitate a very long shoot. That’s exactly what’s happening, according to star Chris Evans. He says he’ll be shooting both Infinity War parts for about 9 months, starting late next year.

Robert Downey Jr Twitter Photos

Tony Stark might joke that he’s not the boss of the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is certainly the leader. The actor was in classic form at the Avengers: Age of Ultron junket over the weekend and used his Twitter to document the whole thing. He took photos with almost all of his co-stars, joked about Captain America: Civil War, and basically just gave fans what they wanted – access to one of the most anticipated films of the year. Check out some of the awesome Robert Downey Jr Twitter photos below. Read More »

Avengers Age of Ultron trailer

Marvel has not been stingy about releasing footage for this highly anticipated superhero team-up. And while they’re bound to run out eventually, they’ve managed to squeeze out a little bit more for a final promo. Check out one more Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.

jason reitman live read

There are less than 24 hours until the big event and Captain America is out. The text comes in at 11:20 p.m. on Wednesday March 18. For the past two weeks, I’ve been talking regularly to writer/director Jason Reitman about the latest installment in his Live Read series, the ongoing set of performances at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in which he assembles famous casts to read famous scripts from famous movies as a one-night only event. We’ve been covering them for a long time. For the final one of this season, I wanted to know how it was done.

This Live Read was to be Dazed and Confused by Richard Linklater, a sprawling coming of age film with a huge cast of characters, many of whom have become iconic for moviegoers. The most iconic is Wooderson, played by Matthew McConaughey. It’s a small role, and one that Reitman thought he had cast months before the event.

Reitman was at the 87th Annual Academy Awards back in February representing Whiplash, a Best Picture nominee he produced. There he ran into Captain American actor Chris Evans and asked him if he wanted to read the role of Wooderson. Evans enthusiastically agreed and was on board… until less than 24 hours before the event, when he had to drop out. “He had a sincere personal reason to pull out,” Reitman writes via text. “He’s an incredibly decent and lovely guy.” Nevertheless, Captain America has caused a bit of a problem.

Below, find out both how that turned out and the entire making of story behind the Jason Reitman Live Read of Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused Live Read. Read More »

There are two months left until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters, which may seem like a painfully long time but is really nothing compared to the two years and ten months we’ve already been waiting for it. In the meantime, Marvel Studios is happy to tide us over with the occasional tidbit, like the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer promised earlier this week.

Joss Whedon returns to direct the superpowered gang, including Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.

In addition, the latest trailer offers a good look at some of the Avengers’ new friends and foes, including Paul Bettany as Vision. Watch the new Avengers Age of Ultron trailer after the jump.
