Just in time for the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel is teaming up with adidas for a line of new, superhero-inspired sneakers. Most prominently, the collaboration has yielded a pair of Quicksilver kicks to celebrate the introduction of the new character, although the color of Quicksilver’s sneakers makes them look like they might belong to Bruce Banner.
Ryan Reynolds has been doing a great job staying connected with fans from the set of Deadpool — after all, this film wouldn’t exist without the fans, who rallied for a solo Deadpool movie following the leaked test footage from last year. Reynolds has shared another new photo from the set of the upcoming film, and it’s rather bloody.
When the sequel to James Mangold’s The Wolverine was announced last year, writer David James Kelly was attached to the project. That appears to no longer be the case, as Fox has tapped Michael Green for screenwriting duties on the next chapter in our favorite furry mutant’s journey. It’s unclear whether Green will be starting over from scratch or simply delivering rewrites, but Fox is probably intent on really nailing this sequel, as it will be the last time we see Hugh Jackman portray the character on screen.
Last night, Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed our first look at Jared Leto in full Joker costume. It was a smart move, in a sense — this way, Ayer and Leto put the image out there ahead of any pesky on-set paparazzi pics, fully taking ownership of the new look before someone else could take the wind out of their sails. If they were to hide him during production with the intention of revealing the Joker as a surprise later on, fans would probably react more poorly than they did last night. The truth is, Leto’s Joker is both problematic…and not.
Well that didn’t take long. Following David Ayer’s recent teaser image of the character and Jared Leto’s own candid Snapchat pic, the director has officially revealed the first legitimate photo of Leto in character as the Joker in Suicide Squad. He’s very pale, very tattooed and totally insane. And he’s nothing like any Joker you’ve ever seen before.
Typically while doing press rounds for any film that’s perceived as male-oriented, actresses are often asked the dumbest, most sexist questions over and over and over again, while their male co-stars get to answer the awesome questions. Women get asked about their diets, outfits and makeup, while men are asked about filming action sequences and their opinion about the film’s headier concepts. But one very clever reporter flipped the script in a recent interview with Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Mark Ruffalo and Scarlett Johansson, and the results are hilarious.
Frank Miller hadn’t tweeted for over three and a half years before today. Guess he waited until he had something major to tweet about it. I would say this qualifies:
For better or worse, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel took more than a few pages from the Christopher Nolan school of superhero filmmaking, placing Superman and his foes in a bleak, gray world. The video above asks a very interesting question: What if he didn’t? What would Man of Steel (and the upcoming Batman vs. Superman) look like if Snyder let the natural colors of Superman’s costume and his world do what colors do best?
Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight has previously spoken of his interest in a second Netflix season, though the Marvel drama has since revealed its renewal plans without DeKnight at the helm. Now, series star Charlie Cox has his own thoughts on where Daredevil Season 2 might go, including Defenders ties, Avengers crossover, and even The Punisher.
Daredevil showrunner Steven DeKnight said he wanted to try and work more Marvel easter eggs into the first season of the Netflix series, but a lot of future characters (like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage) hadn't been cast yet. But, what if for one of the upcoming Marvel shows on Netflix, they were able to introduce a future character that had been cast? That's the basis for a pretty interesting, yet unconfirmed rumor, that states Benedict Cumberbatch will appear as Doctor Strange in the upcoming Iron Fist series.
