His first project following completion of the superhero trilogy will see him teaming up with Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim for an adaptation of the classic Robert A. Heinlein sci-fi novel The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directing duo Joe and Anthony Russo have established themselves quite nicely over at Marvel Studios—not only are they directing Captain America: Civil War, but it’s been all-but-confirmed that the pair will helm both parts of Avengers: Infinity War. In a curious bit of news regarding the Russos today, the brothers have just signed a deal with Sony following an agreement between the studio and Marvel over the rights to Spider-Man. Curious indeed.

There is surely going to be a lot of wild stuff in Avengers 2, but nothing in any of the trailers has gotten the internet’s attention quite like Tony Stark’s “Hulkbuster” armor. As the name implies, this suit is Iron Man’s contingency plan for a rogue Bruce Banner and it looks like it will get put to good use in the actual film.

When he passed away last week at the age of 83, Leonard Nimoy was mourned by actors, artists, politicians, scientists, engineers, astronauts and even the President of the United States. That should tell you something. Few characters have had such a seismic impact on popular culture as Star Trek’s Spock and countless people all over the world felt like they had lost a friend. Amidst the countless tributes, there is now one that stands out: a brief but powerful remembrance from Zachary Quinto, who picked up the Spock mantle in 2009’s Star Trek and its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness.
As we get closer and closer to the new Avengers 2 trailer (which debuts on ABC this Friday), we've got yet another character poster from the film, this time focusing on de facto leader, Captain America. But, is this our last poster, or are some of the new members of the Avengers going to join the fun?
At first glance, Ex Machina might be most notable for the pairing of upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 actors Oscar Issac and Domhnall Gleeson, but it's clear upon watching this new trailer, that the upcoming sci-fi film is much more than that.
There’s no better way to turn any family get-together into a screaming match than to bring up Edward Snowden, the CIA whistleblower who revealed the extent of NSA surveillance on American citizens and became an international fugitive. You know, one man’s patriot is another man’s traitor and so on and so forth. Well, director Oliver Stone is looking to ruin a whole bunch of Christmas dinners this year with Snowden, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the most polarizing figure in modern American history. Consider the release of two images of Gordon-Levitt as Snowden your cue to start prepping for your next family argument.
I just sat down with Chris Evans, in full Captain America costume, on the Avengers: Age of Ultron set. After just the first question, Evans says, “I can’t tell you that.” Okay... The next question is equally as innocuous; something about the current “group dynamic” of the Avengers, or whatever. Evans pauses and glances behind him at a Marvel publicist, who shakes his head. “I don’t think I can tell you that either.”
