Sebastian Stan Reveals Another Avengers 4 Flashback

If you’ve been following the set photos that have leaked from production, you’ll know that all the evidence is pointing towards Avengers 4 featuring flashbacks to various points in the McU’s past. That includes Nebula and Gamora’s childhood, a return for Peggy Carter, the events of 2015’s Ant-Man and a callback to 2012’s The Avengers.

Now, we have another clue that suggests some more time travel goodness is coming our way. Sebastian Stan – who, of course, plays Bucky Barnes Aka the Winter Soldier – shared the below image on his Instagram account. While not hugely revealing, it shows him pulling a face while sitting in Tony Stark’s hall of armor. Which doesn’t seem too out of sorts, until you remember that it was blown up back in Iron Man 3.

Has Film Declined In The 21st Century?

Tom Jolliffe on whether standards in film have dropped this century…

I’ve made passing reference to it before, but the tail end of the year always brings time for reflection, and I’ve often bemoaned the decline in important cinema being made in recent years. This is the stuff of miserable old git conversations in the pub. I’ve had a few with a couple of mates. We’re all hovering around the mid-30’s mark, so we’re not that old yet but we’ve constructed a faultless conclusion (beer led conclusions following much calculating are always faultless of course)…Film died somewhere in the late 90’s (Died is a little strong I admit). Likewise we’ve discussed exactly the same regarding music (I will say whatever groaning apathy I begin to find about modern film is nothing compared to the music industry now).

I’ve nailed the point of decline (for music,

Disney CEO Touches Base On Plans For Their New Non-Marvel Franchises

With the ink now drying on Disney‘s $52.4 billion merger with 21st Century Fox, much attention has been paid to the transfer of the X-Men and Fantastic Four rights and their future inclusion in a revamped Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that deal doesn’t just buy a load of superheroes, it’s given the studio the rights to many, many other movies franchises as well and now, Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that they’ll “look carefully” at their new IP lineup to work out what they can do with it.

Other than the Marvel stuff, probably the biggest coup for Disney is getting the full rights to James Cameron’s Avatar franchise. After all, they’ve already invested in Avatar for their World of Pandora theme parks and they’ll doubtless be eager for the upcoming sequels to smash the box office as widely open as the first one did.

‘Fighting American #3′ Review

  • Nerdly
Written by Gordon Rennie | Art by Duke Mighten, PC De La Fuente | Published by Titan Comics

If I had to pick a book to be the surprise package of the year, it could very well be this one. Fighting American as a book has always struggled, as creators have often fallen between two stalls. Originally intended as a parody of Captain America, by Cap’s own creators no less, some writers have double downed on the parody element and turned the book into a comedy. Other writers have then tried the polar opposite approach, to treat the character and source material as seriously as possible, and make Fighting American just another patriotic hero. This book has taken the road less travelled, the middle road, and so far it has worked out just fine. Great, even.

I won’t recap too much, that’s for commie stooges after all, but all

Marvel announces Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes

Science and magic will converge in a brand-new Iron Man story this coming March as Marvel brings the Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes one-shot by Howard Wong and Justice Wong to the United States.

“Howard and Justice are an outstanding combo on this book! Just as Mordo and Zola—and Strange and Stark—realize that the combination of science and magic makes for a formidable force, these two bring their own special blend of storytelling to the Marvel Universe,” said series editor Mark Basso. “And there are a couple of new characters in this book we’re excited about—some new heroes to keep an eye on for sure!”

First look at ‘Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes’

  • Nerdly
This March, science and magic converge in a brand-new Iron Man story that bridges new talent and epic innovation with Iron Man: Hong Kong Heroes. Originally conceived around the opening of the Hong Kong Disneyland Iron Man Experience attraction, Marvel is bringing this exciting tale to the United States for the first time along with Hong Kong based talent, in a special one-shot by Howard Wong with art by Justice Wong.

The battleground is Stark Expo, and the focus is a new invention by the name of Stark Emergency Response Exosuit – otherwise known as the Sere-x. The sinister Baron Mordo and Armin Zola have teamed up to attempt to steal a magical artifact from Doctor Strange that merges technology and ancient dark magic. And it’s Iron Man’s job to keep the technology out of the hands of evil!

Disney Buys Fox in a Deal Worth $52 Billion, Changing Hollywood Forever

Disney Buys Fox in a Deal Worth $52 Billion, Changing Hollywood Forever
Disney has officially struck a deal to purchase Rupert Murdoch's entertainment empire, 21 Century Fox media company. A $52.4-billion stock deal is set to radically transform Hollywood forever as it will effectively eliminate one of the major six Hollywood film studios. Including debt that Disney will assume, the deal is valued at $66 billion dollars.

The deal includes the 20th Century Fox movie and television studio, Fox's 22 regional sports channels, cable entertainment brands FX and National Geographic as well as Fox's portfolio of international operations, including a India-based pay-tv service. Rupert Murdoch would only retain control of Fox News Channel, the Fox broadcast network and his newspapers.

The deal will make Rupert Murdoch, co-executive chairman of Fox, and sons James (CEO) and Lachlan (co-executive chairman), key shareholders of Disney stock. According to Bloomberg estimates, Fox shareholders will end up with about a 25% stake in Disney, with the Murdoch family trust owning

Avengers: Infinity War Is Now The All-Time Most Viewed Trailer On YouTube

Well, we knew that the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was doing rather well on YouTube as three out of five of those that were most viewed in 2017 belong to films distributed by Marvel Studios, but, every day, it seems like we get some kind of new inclination as to how highly anticipated this movie truly is. Maybe it’s the fact that this is what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to since Iron Man first arrived in 2008, or that so many superheroes will be united in one picture, but our best judgment says it’s a bit of both.

As it turns out, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have actually toppled the previous record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens (just under 100 million views) and, at the time of this writing, have tallied an impressive 100,018,171 views of their own – making Infinity War the most viewed trailer of all-time.

Cinema’s Damaged Heroine

Sarah Myles on cinema’s damaged heroine…

“Badass.”

As a word, it has become synonymous with determined women in movies. Why? Because that is how critics routinely describe them.

“Black Widow gets extra bad-ass in this Avengers 2 trailer,” said Rob Bricken of i09.

In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays “a career badass who enjoys both the job and the perks with equal enthusiasm,” according to J. Hurtado of Screen Anarchy.

Kaya Payseno of Bust tells us that “Badass women star in a feminist western,” while reviewing The Keeping Room.

According to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, Wonder Woman is “A gloriously badass breath of fresh air.”

From whence does this strangely limited vocabulary come? How have we reached a point where a critic can use the word ‘badass,’ and we almost all picture exactly the same thing: a mostly solitary woman, in figure hugging/revealing costumes, scowling and being violent?

Infinity War Gets The Retro Treatment With New Fan-Made Trailer

Only two weeks have passed since Marvel welcomed the arrival of the first Avengers: Infinity War teaser and already, Joe and Anthony Russo’s starry tentpole has racked up a staggering 100 million views on YouTube.

That number continues to climb at an exponential rate, so it’s small wonder why Infinity War now holds the title as the most-watched trailer debut of all time within 24 hours. But YouTube content creator and all-around video wizard Darth Blender has produced a decidedly different take on the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

Much like Darth Blender’s videos for Justice League, Injustice II and Spider-Man: Homecoming, this latest sizzle reel (see below) gives Infinity War the retro treatment, and is edited in such a way that Reb Brown and Burt Reynolds take point as Iron Man and Captain America.

With Thanos’ arrival imminent, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes begin to fall into place, including Lou Ferrigno’s Hulk,

Avengers: Infinity War Gets an Amazing Retro Mashup Trailer!

I know a lot of you are excited about Avengers: Infinity War, so while we wait for it to be released, which seems like a lifetime away, we have a great retro mashup trailer for you to watch! It comes from Darth Blender and it features a mashup of footage from several classic superhero films that were made in the 80s and 90s. I'm sure you'll remember some of these if you were up to speed with what Marvel was doing during this era. Below the video, you'll find a list of all the films that were used and all the characters that the actors are meant to play.

I love that Chuck Norris in The Punisher! It also features Burt Reynolds as Iron Man, David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury, Jean-Claude Van Damme as Winter Soldier, Dennis Quaid as Star-Lord, Eddie Murphy as Falcon and more!

Avengers: Infinity War Lego Set Reveals New Costumes For Doctor Strange, Spidey And More

Marvel may have only released a single teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, but by drawing upon the McU’s continuity, fans have already formed their conclusions when it comes to Joe and Anthony Russo’s super-sized epic.

And so, that has led to a number of ‘foolproof’ theories bouncing around the Internet – from Tony Stark’s ‘secret’ Infinity Stone to the Mad Titan and everything in between, there’s really no end to the Infinity War rabbit hole. Thankfully, though, there are at least a few things we can confirm, and one of them is that a number of the characters will be receiving new costumes.

From Spidey’s new suit to Iron Man’s upgraded armor, several of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be looking a bit different the next time we see them and thanks to the Avengers: Infinity War Lego set, we’ve now got another

Hugh Jackman Discusses The Disney and Fox Merger and if He'd Come Back To Play Wolverine For Marvel

Hugh Jackman has heard about the potential Disney and Fox merger, and he sounds excited. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like he's so excited he's going to ask Fox to retcon his death so he can come back and fight as Wolverine alongside the Avengers, but there does seem to be some want to do that in his quote to Collider below:

“It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that would be so great, like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, 'Oh well, that’s not gonna happen,' and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline — it was just the possibility of it and

The Punisher Is Dressed To Kill In Upgraded War Machine Armor

It’s certainly been a year to remember if you’re a fan of The Punisher, now hasn’t it? In addition to winning over True Believers with the new Netflix series starring Jon Bernthal, Frank Castle has found yet another way to turn heads on the comic book side of things.

As you may recall, James Rhodes unfortunately met his end during the events of Civil War II. But, as it turns out, his War Machine armor didn’t go to waste because – get this – Castle picked up where Iron Man’s best buddy left off. That’s right, the deadliest mech suit around has fallen into the most dangerous hands possible.

Originally, I scoffed at this idea because I like seeing Castle as more of a stripped down vigilante who can easily exist outside of the Marvel Universe – and often has in his feature films. But when I really thought about it,

Avengers: Infinity War Merchandise Gives Us New Looks At Thanos, Groot And More

By now, we’re all used to getting glimpses of stuff in upcoming blockbusters via merchandising. Licensed Lego sets are always a good bet for a couple of spoilers, as are action figures at trade shows and foreign market advertising material. None of which makes it any less amusing that we’re getting our first full body look at Thanos, the Mad Titan and scourge of Avengers: Infinity War via a novelty cup topper.

Though they’re understandably a bit cheap-looking, they also have a decent amount of detail to them. The set we have below encompasses Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, Teenage Groot and Thanos. Obviously, we’re already pretty familiar with how the first three look in the McU, so there are no surprises there. However, the Teenage Groot and Thanos ones are worthy of some more examination.

Firstly, Thanos looks ready to wreck some poor superhero’s day.

Hayley Atwell Returns as Peggy Carter in Avengers: Secret Wars

Hayley Atwell’s portrayal of Peggy Carter is amazing. Many fans were heartbroken when the time came to end Agent Carter and even more were crushed when she passed in Captain America: Civil War.

An Intriguing Avengers: Infinity War Set Photo Has Surfaced; What Do You Make Of It?

The trailer for Avengers: Infinity War did an awesome job of getting fans massively pumped up for what directors Joe and Anthony Russo have planned for us. The trailer left fans in a daze as we all started discussing what it could all mean.

Well, we've got a new photo from the set of the film to share with you today. It comes from Atlanta Filming, who has apparently been holding on to it for some time. But, Disney gave them the Ok to release it, and it's quite intriguing. It's definitely going to get fans talking because there are a few different things that it could mean.

The photo features four different characters. A bewildered-looking Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man (Robert Downy Jr.), Wong (Benedict Wong), and... well, who does that big giant grey hand reaching for Banner's neck belong to?

There's a chance that it could be either the hand of Thanos,
