One of the hottest actors in the industry could be headed toward one of the coldest places on the planet. Benedict Cumberbatch is being eyed to star as George Mallory in Doug Liman‘s Everest, with Joel Kinnaman, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Matthew Goode, and Jim Sturgess also in the mix.
If you’re confused because you thought Jason Clarke had already replaced Christian Bale in that movie, you’re thinking of the other Everest, by Baltasar Kormakur. That one has suffered a few setbacks but is now hoping to shoot this fall, with Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, and Jake Gyllenhaal in addition to Clarke. Get the latest on both movies after the jump.

Audiences like Tom Hiddleston as Loki. The character did well in Thor, but The Avengers really turned him into a fan-favorite. It was that snarl, the willingness to be beaten like a rag doll by the Hulk, and the phrase “mewling quim” that set hearts a-flutter. Loki is a big part of Thor: The Dark World, to the point where reshoots added more of the character after shooting originally ended. But after that film opens this November, we won’t see much of Loki for a while.
Fans aren’t too happy about his potential leave-taking of the screen, and one group is petitioning Marvel Studios for a standalone film featuring the character. Read More »

Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston‘s portrayals of the feuding brothers have been the heart of not only Thor, but The Avengers and – from what we’ve seen – this sequel as well. So it’s little surprise they’re the first two character to get their own posters for the November 8 release, directed by Alan Taylor. Check them out below. Read More »
