The D23 Expo has come and gone but the content just keeps on flowing. Marvel has posted videos of their presentations from the Live Action event, featuring cast members from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as some discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Unfortunately for people who weren’t in the room, the actual footage from the movies isn’t included. But you can get a good sense of how Marvel is selling their upcoming films to the Disney audience, and see stars like Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie along the way.

With D23 in full swing, Disney seized the opportunity to show off a new clip from Thor: The Dark World, due out in theaters this fall. Stars Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, and Anthony Hopkins were on hand to present the scene, which depicts Jane’s first day in Asgard. “I didn’t check her passport,” joked Hopkins, who plays Odin. “She’s so beautiful, she belongs in Asgard.”
Despite her godly good looks, however, Jane’s introduction to the realm doesn’t go too smoothly. Hit the jump for a description of the exclusive footage screened at D23.

We’re close enough to the release of Thor: The Dark World that it’s time for the photoshop collage poster, featuring as many elements as possible. In truth, this collage is better than many. It’s got Thor (Chris Hemsworth) cradling Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) front and center, while Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston) looks on and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) laughs.
As most probably realize, the arrival of a new poster heralds a new trailer; in this case the new footage hits on August 7. Check out the full image below.

Between her sharp intellect and proactive attitude, Natalie Portman‘s foray into directing always seemed more like a question of “when,” rather than “if.” And indeed, back in 2007, she began prepping her first feature, based on the memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness by Israeli writer Amos Oz.
The project got pushed to the back burner while Portman honed her skills on short films like “Eve” and her New York I Love You segment, but now it seems she’s ready to get the ball rolling again. According to Oz, Portman is looking to visit Israel this fall to get ready, so that shooting can get underway early next year. Hit the jump for all the details.

Jane Got a Gun has changed so much in the last couple months that I don’t have any idea what to expect at this point. Original director Lynne Ramsay departed right on the eve of shooting (and still hasn’t spoken publicly about the reason for doing so) and that began a cycle of cast changes that continues weeks later.
Last week Bradley Cooper walked away from playing the film’s bad guy, reportedly because of scheduling conflicts with David O. Russell’s American Hustle, and his generally busy schedule. Indeed, Russell’s movie was thrown into a bit of chaos thanks to the Boston Marathon bomber manhunt, and so that’s a plausible reason. But after all the upheaval on the western that is now being directed by Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) it’s somewhat difficult to imagine that scheduling was the only issue.
Regardless, Ewan McGregor has now stepped in to play the leader of a gang of outlaws. Among the gang was the husband of Jane (Natalie Portman), but he leaves the gang and heads for home, leading her to recruit an old flame (Joel Edgerton) to help defend her homestead in case the outlaws come calling.

I don’t believe in curses, but if I did I’d be inclined to believe Jane Got a Gun was suffering from one. Bradley Cooper has just dropped out of the notoriously troubled Western, making him the third actor to do so in just two months. Joel Edgerton, Natalie Portman, and Noah Emmerich remain on board.
Producers are now scrambling to find a replacement, and are reportedly eyeing Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Tom Hiddleston as possibilities. Hit the jump for more details.

For the past several weeks, the casting of Jane Got a Gun has played like an extra-handsome version of musical chairs. First Michael Fassbender and Joel Edgerton were in, then Fassbender departed and Edgerton took his place. Jude Law was brought in to take Edgerton’s old slot, but then he left too. Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jeff Bridges were eyed as potential replacements for Law, before Bradley Cooper finally booked the part.
But one seat has remained steadily empty throughout the process, until now. Noah Emmerich will round out the cast of the Gavin O’Connor-directed Western as Natalie Portman‘s husband, whose betrayal of his gang sets the rest of the plot in motion. Hit the jump to keep reading.
