Late last week, word started to trickle out that Aquaman – who is all but confirmed to be played by Jason Momoa in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ – made a cameo in ‘Man of Steel,’ but you just didn’t realize it because he was never on camera.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
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.
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'?

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.
