Is this the end of Tony Stark?
Scarlett Johansson stars in Luc Besson's 'Lucy,' which opens today. So we had a crazy thought: What if we, like, RANKED her other movies? Wild, man, wild.
A new rumor has Robert Downey Jr. lobbying for Marvel to add Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster to 'Avengers: Age of Ultron.'
With Thor: The Dark World opening everywhere on Friday, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air a follow-up episode on Nov. 19.
If you’ve never seen the 1998 made-for-TV movie Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD, then I suggest you stop whatever you’re doing (after you finish reading this, natch) and watch it, because it is a glorious piece of nonsense.
As we already knew, The Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature the robot Ultron as the main villain, or otherwise that title would have been pretty darn stupid.
Back at the Comic-Con 2013 mini-panel for Riddick, Vin Diesel told the audience that some “big news” would be coming at some point regarding <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/07/vin-diesel-is-probably-going-to-be-in-the-avengers-2" target="_blank">that meeting that he had with Marvel Studios</a> in early July and the picture of himself that he posted in front of the Avengers poster.
Last month, as people were gearing up for all of the exciting new film, TV and comic revelations at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, the toldjastapo at Deadline <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/07/sorry-comic-con-disney-will-debut-star-wars-at-its-own-d23-expo" target="_blank">dropped the crappy news</a> that anyone looking for Star Wars teasers and Episode VII news was going to have to wait a little longer.
Now that we know that <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/07/the-avengers-age-of-ultron-probably-means-that-vin-diesel-is-playing-vision" target="_blank">the robot Ultron is the main villai</a>n in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can finally move on to the much more important aspect of movie news – spreading wild rumors about which comic book plots that Joss Whedon and Co.
Unless you were busy doing push-ups or picking your girlfriends up from the strip club, you probably heard that Joss Whedon and the Marvel Studios gang <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2013/07/comic-con-2013-marvel/" target="_blank">announced at Comic-Con 2013</a> that the official title of the Avengers sequel is Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Early reviews for Man of Steel are mostly positive as expected, because it looks like a great movie and it was made by a guy who makes pretty great movies (here's <a href="http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/06/11/man-of-steel-new-superman-movie-starring-henry-cavill-falls-flat.html" target="_blank">one bad review</a>, though).
Other than the revelation that the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are joining Marvel’s The Avengers 2: On The Move, we’ve been a little light in the super awesome comic book movie rumors and news in the past week or so.
Parks and Rec will feature two episodes tomorrow night, and Vince won’t watch them because he hates America, but our favorite stand-up comedian and nerd god Patton Oswalt will make a cameo in the second episode as yet another insane Pawnee resident with a problem that has nothing to do with the greater good of the fictional city.
All of the pieces seem to be falling into place rather nicely for <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2013/03/guardians-of-the-galaxy-to-be-95-in-space">Marvel’s giant sci-fi space epic</a>, Guardians of the Galaxy, which will of course be tied into the ever-expanding Avengers universe.
With Justice League and Spider-Man news and rumors out of the way, I wouldn’t be doing my nerdly service if I didn’t whip up some Avengers HOTT GOSS, and fortunately there’s quite a bit for us today.
It wouldn’t be a day of the week ending in –y if we didn’t have some juicy HOTT GOSS about the Justice League movie, and wouldn’t you know it – it’s all really bad.
While the biggest nerd boner Marvel Studios/Avengers movie rumor of the week is still the idea that the 2016 Incredible Hulk movie will be based on the Planet Hulk series and The Avengers 3 <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2013/02/all-the-hulk-you-can-handle-marvel-studios-are-planning-to-adapt-planet-hulk-and-world-war-hulk/">will possibly involve the World War Hulk story</a>, the more realistic news is that it appears that Guardians of the Galaxy finally has a star.
The Marvel Studios Universe is already expected to be quite busy in 2013 and 2014, with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World set for release in May and November (respectively), and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy set for April and August of 2014.
Judging by his IMDB page, Vin Diesel is settling into the “I’m just going to keep making sequels of the movies that make a lot of money and Chronicles of Riddick” phase of his career, with the lone upcoming exception being The Machine.
There’s been a little buzz building around Marvel’s efforts to buy up any loose end comic book characters that have already had films made about them, because it is believed that the comic book empire and film studio wants to be able to cram as many characters as possible into future projects.
