Director Damien Chazelle caught everyone’s attention in a big way with Whiplash, his debut feature film starring Miles Teller, which (rightfully) earned J.K. Simmons an Oscar. His next film is based on a screenplay he wrote before Whiplash, and it might very well star two of the most lovable actors alive: Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who previously appeared together in Gangster Squad.

As most of you are aware, Tomorrowland was a concept created by Walt Disney, as a platform to showcase the innovations of tomorrow that would benefit future generations. We know that Disney himself (or a fictional version, anyway) is involved in the new Tomorrowland movie, which means there should be some fun connections for longtime fans of his theme parks and classic television specials. New featurettes explore some of those connections, along with what a place like Tomorrowland stands for.
Looks like Zack Snyder is trying to steal some of the spotlight from Disney and Lucasfilm. The director will reportedly reveal the first five seconds of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer online just an hour before Star Wars Celebration begins on Thursday. Five seconds sounds pretty lame, which is why Snyder is offering fans a chance to see the entire trailer shortly after…in a theater. Sure, why not.
For a long time, it was rumored that Captain Marvel would make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron. And then those rumors dried up, replaced by official word that Carol Danvers would not be making her big screen debut in the film. Now, we have confirmation that those early rumors were on point at the very least. Captain Marvel was this close to showing up in the Avengers sequel, so much so that special effects footage was shot for her appearance.
Joss Whedon has not been shy about why he’s done directing massive Marvel movies after Avengers: Age of Ultron. He’s tired. So tired, in fact, that he wasn’t able to properly engage in a Marvel Cinematic Universe tradition with his second outing and cram the frame with tiny easter eggs that only fans will notice and appreciate.
So much for “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.” Star Wars has officially joined the 21st century with the news that this year’s Star Wars Celebration will be live streamed to fans around the world. If you won’t be present to witness the world premiere of the next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer or watch a panel featuring your favorite actors from the saga, you’ll be able to do so from the comfort of your own home.
Ever since the Hulk stole the show back in 2012’s The Avengers, fans have been clamoring for a solo adventure for Mark Ruffalo and his big, green alter-ego. And yet, we’ve heard nothing and aside from a tiny cameo in Iron Man 3, Bruce Banner has sat out Marvel’s Phase 2. However, Ruffalo himself has spoken out about the matter and it sounds like Earth’s mightiest green rage monster is being constrained by the most powerful force in the universe: rights issues.
Avengers: Age of Ultron has already begun screening for critics and it has been receiving very positive responses, which is definitely not doing anything to deter our personal hype from reaching unfair and dangerous levels. Thankfully, Marvel has thrown the rest of us a bone with this new clip from the film, which features enough of that typical Joss Whedon wit and enough big action to satiate us for, oh, another day or so.
After months of casting, pre-production photos and the state of Jared Leto’s hair affairs, Suicide Squad is officially, finally filming. Director David Ayer has been bucking the studio trend when it comes to superhero films, and he’s remained very open and communicative about the project on Twitter. Ayer made the official announcement today, so expect to see even more production photos over at his account soon.
On the heels of the incredibly disappointing news that Michelle MacLaren has exited the Wonder Woman film comes some exciting news from the realm of superhero women. Although we won’t officially meet Captain Marvel for a little while, Marvel Studios is already putting talent together for her upcoming solo film. The studio has their eye on Nicole Perlman and Meg LaFauve, two talented female writers to hopefully pair with a talented female director (hey Marvel, I hear Michelle MacLaren isn’t busy at the moment).
