Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.
The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

The reason people relate to Tony Stark so much is he’s just a regular guy. A “Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist” to sure, but a normal guy nonetheless. He made Iron Man with his bare hands and that’s something we can relate to. Some, more than others.
Online user named Honus67, for example. He made an animatronic Iron Man suit that works almost exactly like the real thing. It just can’t fly, stop bullets or shoot missiles. But the moving helmet, pop up weapons and all that? Totally works. Read More »
When I look back at many of my favorite films, I often find a common thread. One in particular is Jon Favreau. The writer and star of my favorite movie Swingers got his start in another personal fave, Rudy, and went on to direct one of the most important movies of the past decade, Iron Man. Beyond that he’s made a holiday classic in Elf, starred on numerous iconic TV shows, directed TV pilots, the guy has done it all.
Recently, the failure of Cowboys and Aliens made Favreau go back to his indie roots and make Chef. It’s a small, independent film he wrote, directed and stars in that shows Favreau is still as passionate and skillful as ever. It’s really good.
Favreau recently took to Reddit to do an Ask Me Anything, and we’ve pulled news tidbits, fun stories, quotes and more. Among those are an update on casting his next film, Disney’s The Jungle Book, some stories about making Iron Man, Rudy, his thoughts on the cancellation of Revolution, Ben Affleck as Batman, restarting Dinner for Five, Ant-Man, directing a Star Wars movie, handing off the Iron Man franchise and making his new film, Chef. Read our Jon Favreau AMA recap below. Read More »
