Were you a little disappointed by the 'Iron Man 3' post-credits scene? The scene that was included was cute and funny but where was the big tease; the look ahead at one of the future Marvel movies, specifically the one that would've linked 'Iron Man 3' to 'Guardians of the Galaxy?' Well if one of the stars is to be believed, Marvel had that scene ready but scrapped it. But but but why? Find out after the jump.
"The Four Horsemen," a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists, pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law.
This has been a major point of speculation in the Marvel fan universe as of late with rumors of solo 'Huk' films featuring the 'Planet Hulk' and 'World War Hulk' storylines, though they were soon shot down by both Joss Whedon and Marvel. Still, many of us are secretly hoping that our favorite big green guy will get the same screen time as Captain America and Iron Man, but will it actually happen? Here's the latest on this from Mark Ruffalo...
Though she's still one of the biggest movies stars out there, for an actress like Julia Roberts, turning to television is one of the best ways to get leading roles. So it's no surprise she's leading Ryan Murphy's 'Normal Heart' adaptation for HBO. And she'll be joined by Avenger Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer.
The trailer for 'Now You See Me' seems to suggest one crazy-ass movie. With a large and awesome ensemble cast, and a plot that seems to revolve around magicians who break into a break in Paris (while still in Vegas) only to give that money away... this could be awesome or terrible or terribly awesome or awesomely terrible. Hard to say.
Kenneth Lonergan's 'Margaret' hit DVD and VOD this week -- a film that languished in post-production limbo for six years as Lonergan was unable or unwilling to finish a cut with which he was satisfied. The film is a beautiful, oft-messy character study of a young woman and the effects of tragedy.
We are still three days away from the opening of 'The Avengers' on thousands of movie screens around the country (it's already opened in Europe to record-breaking box office), but some of the biggest buzz surrounding the movie comes from its portrayal of the Green Goliath himself, the Incredible Hulk.
So that leads to this question: should the Hulk get a third shot at his own solo movie?
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently said he didn't think that was going to happen, but the tremendous word of mouth on the character in 'The Avengers' -- it wouldn't be a stretch to say he steals the movie -- has prompted some other Marvel execs to perhaps rethink that. In an interview,, the head of Marvel's Consumer Products division (in other words, the all-important toys and merchandise) says that if the Hulk's popularity continues to soar as people see 'The Avengers,' a Hulk TV series will move forward along with a new movie in 2015.
Can the character carry his own big-screen blockbuster again?
We think the answer is no.
