It looks like the contents of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set will be revealed one piece at a time for those of us who haven't plopped down the cash for it. Judging by the cool prop replicas, concept art and featurettes included, though, the collection seems well worth the plopped dollars.
One of the new featurettes included in the box set contains an extended look at "Iron Man 3" and its role as Phase Two's starting point. Marvel has released a one minute clip featuring Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr. and Stephen Broussard discussing how the upcoming film fits into the ever-expanding Marvel mythos.
You can view the full featurette in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set.
Hugh Jackman stopped by "MTV After Hours" to talk about this summer's "The Wolverine." He also gave Josh an impromptu lesson in Wolverine speak, applying his signature growl to three key phrases of the English language. Check out the full video below, if only for the giddy satisfaction you will definitely feel after hearing Jackman say "bub" again. It's been too long.
Apparently there's one team-up that's even more mighty than the Avengers themselves: that of Marvel and Shepperton Studios. The UK-based studio was home to the just-wrapped "Thor: The Dark World" and is gearing up to take "Guardians of the Galaxy" out of Earth's orbit. Screen Daily reports that the sequel to the biggest film not directed by James Cameron will make Pinewood-Shepperton its home starting in early 2014.
An elite cabal of action figure sellers have come across the first assortment of "Man of Steel" figures and set their plan in motion: selling them on ebay! Okay, so that's not that nefarious of a plot. And the "elite cabal" business was probably hyperbole. Whatever the case, their actions have given us our first peek at the toy packaging and, yes, character bios for Superman, General Zod and Jor-El.
Each back story is pretty much what anyone with a basic knowledge of Superman would come up with. Superman's parents sent him away from the dying Krypton and he grew up in Smallville. General Zod was imprisoned in the phantom zone (surprisingly not capitalized). Jor-El is Superman's dad and, also, Russell Crowe. It all seems like harmless info, but there could be a turn of phrase that could be considered a spoiler depending on how deep your Superman knowledge runs and how cautious you are about spoilers. Your call, reader! Check out the toy packaging below.
Day 39 of "Amazing Spider-Man 2's" New York City shoot resulted in two Twitter pictures... and whatever footage was shot. The photos come courtesy of Marc Webb's Twitter account, which is a must-follow for everyone excited about the Spidey sequel. These pictures, though, actually feature director Marc Webb in the center of the action, demonstrating his vision for an audience consisting of producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled Blu-ray box set, which contains every film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, is coming out tomorrow and Marvel.com has released images of a few of the goodies found inside Captain America's file. The set comes with two replica Captain America trading cards, made famous in one of the most heart-wrenching scenes in "Marvel's the Avengers." But at least these cards come free of Coulson blood (or fake Coulson blood, actually).
Check out the trading card images below and be sure to peek at the rest of Cap's file over at Marvel.com, especially if you are as curious about Captain America's birthday as I was.
If you aren't caught up on the third season of "The Walking Dead," or if you haven't seen last night's season finale, you may want to steer clear of this news. The sheer knowledge of this human being's involvement in season 4 of "The Walking Dead" is itself a spoiler. The casting news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, so we can be reasonably sure that it's not a truly delightful April Fool's Day joke.
Collider caught up with Clark Gregg and asked him pretty much every single question one would want to ask Clark Gregg. In one video, Gregg touches on everything from his role in the "S.H.I.E.L.D." pilot to whether or not he thinks the much beloved agent will return in future Marvel Cinematic Universe films. You can check out the entire interview below; it's six minutes very well spent, if only to see Clark Gregg speak words and move his face around in that endearing and good-natured way that we've all come to love.
