Personally, I don’t like to listen to a soundtrack before I see a movie. Music is one of the few aspects of a film that can be almost totally unspoiled because it’s added late in the process, often after the marketing is set. But, at a certain point a few weeks before release, it’s out there. The music release recently happened in a clever way for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and now it’s happened for Guardians of the Galaxy.
What’s unique about James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack is that it’s totally comprised of pop music. Some of it you know, some of it you might not, but as you can tell from the cover art above, it’s an “awesome mix.” Just like the Guardians themselves. The CD itself won’t be out for a few weeks but because it’s pop music, you can essentially listen to the whole Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack right now. Read More »
It’s a question we’ve been asking for several years. “How is Marvel going to use the Hulk outside of The Avengers?’ The studio made a solo film starring Edward Norton some years back, itself a reboot of a less successful solo film by Ang Lee. But most felt the character wasn’t right until Joss Whedon’s version in The Avengers. Now Phase Two is almost over, but we haven’t seen the return of the Hulk, and won’t until the Avengers: Age of Ultron. So what’s next?
Mark Ruffalo, the actor now playing the role, has confirmed he and Marvel Studios have been thinking more about a new Hulk solo movie and Kevin Feige has long said we won’t see a Hulk movie until Phase Three. Ruffalo also added the long standing rumor of a Planet Hulk film was probably not in the cards. “I think you need more Banner,” he said. “The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators.”
Normally that would settle that argument, but this is 2014. J.J. Abrams swore Khan wasn’t in Star Trek Into Darkness. Marion Cotillard promised she wasn’t Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. These days actors, filmmakers and publicists sometimes have to lie about major surprises. So is Ruffalo lying about Planet Hulk and Phase Three? Yes and no, says HitFix. The specific answer delves into some pretty big Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers, which you can read after the jump. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy definitely looks to be this year’s weirdest mainstream superhero movie, which is really saying something when the others have involved time-traveling mutants and dueling 90-year-old supersoldiers. And we mean that as a sincere compliment.
The latest Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot includes new footage showing off even more of these “criminals, misfits, and thugs,” including Bradley Cooper‘s loud, angry Rocket Raccoon. Watch it after the jump.
