With 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a couple of weeks, and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' in the works, Marvel has set up a cool new viral site that neatly ties everything together (just like their movie universe). And fans will be rewarded handsomely for visiting the site to find out if they're on team S.H.I.E.L.D. or part of the nefarious Hydra organization.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Much like the comic books on which they're based, the Marvel movies pride themselves on their ability to cross each other's characters over into different storylines, and the upcoming 'Ant-Man' will be no different. We've seen such instances as Captain America pop up briefly in 'Thor: The Dark World,' and Agent Coulson and Nick Fury show up in a handful of titles, so which Marvel movie characters from the 'Captain America' universe might show up in Peyton Reed's 'Ant-Man'?
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Warner Bros. steps up to the superhero movie plate, video from the set of 'Batman v Superman' emerges, and Spider-Man inspires a new spin-off.
It’s not surprising to see a television spot for a critically acclaimed movie claim that it’s the “Best Movie of the Year,” through the use of blurbs either provided by, or lifted from, critics. But, in recent years, with the proliferation of the superhero movie genre, there’s been a trend to be the “Best Superhero Movie.” So, based on these television spots alone, what exactly is the best superhero movie or the best Marvel movie of all time? It appears it’s pretty much all of them.
Here are the best movies of 2014 so far! (Note: These movies have all been released in theaters and I am not including movies that I saw at film festivals that have not been yet released to the public.)
Frank Grillo isn't 50 yet -- he just turned 49 earlier this month -- but the Internet, led by IMDb and Wikipedia, has aged him by two years ... and Grillo seems resigned to this fact. It's almost fitting: Grillo, who has been acting for over 20 years, but is just now starting to become a household name thanks to 'Captain America 2' and 'The Purge: Anarchy'.
We had a blast with 'Captain America 2' and it's the kind of film that we can see ourselves watching over and over again. And, what better way to do that than with the 'Captain America 2' DVD and Blu-ray, which has officially been announced for a September 9 release date.
With 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' wrapping up its first season next week, Clark Gregg (who of course plays Agent Phil Coulson on the popular show) would like to clarify that "loser" remark he made about people who had given up on the show early -- a remark Gregg does't deny, but does regret.
I met Gregg on Tuesday afternoon at a restaurant in the West Village to discuss his new film that he both wrote and directed, 'Trust Me' (a story about a sleazy child star agent, played by Gregg, which you can watch On Demand right now and will be in theaters on June 2). The full interview will publish closer to the theatrical release of the film, but with 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' ending its season next Tuesday -- with guest star Samuel L. Jackson -- Gregg teases what we might see in the finale and hints at the implications it will have for the Marvel cinematic universe. And we won't officially learn if the show is returning until next week's upfronts, but Gregg says he'd be surprised if Coulson's team isn't back for another season.
