The first thing you notice about Freddie Prinze Jr. is his almost manic ability to make analogies between almost any subject and professional wrestling. (And considering that Prinze has worked on and off for WWE over the last few years, this wasn't necessarily surprising.) Prinze is at San Diego Comic-Con in support of 'Star Wars Rebels,' the new animated series that takes place between 'Revenge of the Sith' and the original 'Star Wars.' Prinze plays Kanan, a Jedi who survived 'Revenge of the Sith' who hides his Jedi powers so as to not draw attention to himself.
One of the worst kept secrets over in the Marvel world for some time was the development of a Doctor Strange movie. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had expressed his desire to bring the Master of the Mystic Arts from the comics to the screen, and there was even a name drop ("Stephen Strange") in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' but only recently was horror director Scott Der
In a surprise move, this year's Screen Gems Comic-Con panel turned most of its attentions and energies to a film without a cast, a director, or a script in place: the long-teased 'The Last of Us' feature film. The film was officially announced back in March, and producer Sam Raimi and video game creator Neil Druckmann (who is now officially on board to write the script for the film) popped up at this afternoon's panel to talk about the feature film as part of Screen Gems' future-leaning panel.
One of the big rumors at Comic-Con is that Marvel's big announcement would be the casting of 'Doctor Strange'. Even Benedict Cumberbatch got in on the buzz, dropping hints during the DreamWorks Animation panel. But, if the 'Doctor Strange' casting was Marvel's big secret, the secret may have just been revealed. The Wrap is reporting that Marvel is in discussions with three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix to star as their new superhero.
Once upon a time, Nicolas Cage almost played Superman. In a movie directed by Tim Burton. From a script by Kevin Smith. Which was based on the iconic "Death of Superman" comic book storyline. And then it all fell apart, transforming it into one of Hollywood's greatest "What if?" narratives. 'Superman Lives' may have died before making it in front of cameras, but at least the new documentary 'The Death of Superman Lives' will give us an insider's look at what went wrong.
ScreenCrush’s WookieLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'! From 'Episode 7,' to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, a deluge of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' details are revealed, 'Star Wars Rebels' shows off a ton of new footage, and 'Star Wars' and Disney get mashed up in some really crazy cosplay.
When it comes to upcoming movies being previewed at this year's Comic-Con, 'Penguins of Madagascar' feels like it may fly under the radar with the great geek masses. After all, there's no way a cute little spin-off from the 'Madagascar' series could steal the spotlight from the likes of Marvel or Warner Bros. However, if this new clip is any indication, this film is already going to have the children of the great geek masses in the bag, and that's all that matters, really.
In the last year, Scarlett Johansson has voiced a sentient operating system in Spike Jonze's 'Her' and played an alien striving to understand humanity in Jonathan Glazer's jarring 'Under the Skin.' This week, she tackles a different kind of sci-fi with 'Lucy,' a film that carries some of the same thematic DNA as her previous roles, though it isn't quite as intellectual -- nor is it as brainy as its titular character. But thanks to Johansson, the film prevails, giving us a wild and delightfully weird entry in the Scarlett Johansson Sci-Fi Collection.
Looks like Captain America isn't the only Avenger who can get around on two wheels, as a new look at Joss Whedon's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' reveals that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) will also be taking it to the streets on a big hog. ComingSoon shares this first look of Black Widow on the bike -- along with further information about why this bike is so special. Turns out, it's Harley-Davidson's very first electric motorcycle, one they like to call by the superhero movie-ready name "Project LiveWire."
At one point during this interview, Jeff Bridges leaned back in his chair, laughed, then broke into an impression of Jeffrey Lebowski, his character from 'The Big Lebowski' who is also famously known as The Dude. It was at this moment that I decided that the trip from New York City to San Diego for Comic-Con was worth it.
