Spotlight trailer

Writer-director Tom McCarthy has had one bizarre year. He wrote and directed one of the year’s finest films, Spotlight, and also The Cobbler — a movie so strange and tonally troubled you must watch it. McCarthy, to my surprise, also had a role in this summer’s Pixels. The man keeps busy. But Spotlight is the movie everyone keeps talking about, and for good reason. It’s an all around excellent film, with an efficient script, taught direction, and quietly riveting performances.

After the jump, watch Tom McCarthy break down a Spotlight scene.

Spider-Man director

It’s long been assumed that Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man would make his debut in Captain America: Civil War — so long, in fact, that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was officially confirmed fact. But until now, it’s really just been a rumor (albeit one based on lots of circumstantial evidence).

So it’s with great relief that we can report once and for all that, yes, Spider-Man will be in Captain America: Civil War. That is, unless Marvel Studios changes its mind and decides to cut him out.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Lands a New Writer

thor 3 writer

Despite its title, Thor: The Dark World was far from a dark movie. Both Thor movies have plenty of humor, arguably almost too much at times. By hiring writer-director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows), Marvel seems to be indicating it wants the next film in this series, Thor: Ragnarok, to maintain (or have more of) the sense of humor we saw in the first two movies. Of all the Marvel movies, the Thor films have been the lesser entries in the MCU, but with Waititi directing, that may not be the case for Thor: Ragnarok.

Before the film goes into principal next year, a new Thor 3 writer has been brought in to rewrite the script. Learn more about the Marvel sequel and its new writer after the jump.

Bruce Banner Hulk

Just recently it was confirmed that the next time we’ll see The Incredible Hulk will be in Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the God of Thunder’s own film franchise from Marvel Studios. It will mark the first time we see Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and the big guy outside of The Avengers franchise, but we’re not entirely sure what role he’ll have in the sequel’s story.

But in a recent interview at the GQ’s The Gentlemen’s Fun Awards in New York City, Ruffalo proposed his own idea for what he would like to see happen with the mean green machine on the big screen and it involves a Bruce Banner Hulk separation. Read More »

thor 3 hulk

The joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stem from this universe’s collection of extraordinary – and wildly different – characters somehow managing to co-exist in the same universe. It’s always fun to pick up an issue of Captain America and see another superhero appear in to lend a helping hand. The movies have followed suit, with the heroes popping in and out of each other’s lives as they’re needed. The latest rumor smashing up the internet like Bruce Banner after a particularly stressful day suggests that the mightiest (and greenest) of the Avengers will play a role in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, lending support to the mighty son of Odin.
