The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, April 14th. The fate of one category, Best Hero, rests in your social-media-savvy hands. In this heartfelt opinion piece, Splash Page writer Terri Schwartz passionately explains why Iron Man deserves your vote.
When it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's no secret who the most popular Avenger is. Let's give you some hints: his third standalone movie is coming out in less than a month, his two films made more money than the rest of the standalone Marvel movies combined and he's got a sweet collection of armored suits. If you guessed we were talking about Iron Man, than you would be correct.
Of course, Iron Man's coolness comes from more than just the fact he rakes in the big bucks for his mother studio. Tony Stark's also hilarious, has great taste in cars, and what's that phrase he likes to say? Oh yeah, he's a "genius billionaire playboy philanthropist." With that being said, is there really a question about who you should vote to win the MTV Movie Awards Best Hero award?
"The Walking Dead" might have just completed its third season, but Andy Richter is making sure that the show stays close to our hearts. For a segment on "Conan," Richter took a tour of Atlanta dressed as one of the AMC show's zombies.
It seems that Richter stopped by "The Walking Dead's" make-up trailer while he was in Georgia and got the full walker treatment. The application of his new look took two hours, so it's no wonder that he didn't want to wash it off when he went to other culturally significant places in Atlanta like the aquarium, the High Museum of Art and the CNN building. The reactions of other visitors to his zombified look aren't as extreme as we would have expected, but they're still pretty hilarious. Check out the full video below.
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, April 14th. The fate of one category, Best Hero, rests in your social-media-savvy hands. In this rousing opinion piece, Splash Page writer Eddie Wright passionately explains why Hulk deserves your vote.
Hulk smash. Two words, yet so much meaning. What did the those two words mean for movie-goers in 2012? What exactly did Hulk smash? Why did he smash it? And will he smash it again? Let's take a look at why 2012 was the year of the most deserving nominee for Best Hero at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, "Marvel's The Avengers'" Hulk.
Last year, Hulk was the black sheep of the Marvel movie universe. Sure, there had been bigger Marvel-based clunkers like "Fantastic Four," "The Punisher," "Ghost Rider," and "Daredevil," but Hulk was part of something bigger. The Hulk was part of the newly streamlined Marvel Studios movie universe. He was a character fully licensed and produced by the very comic company that created him. The Marvel Studios movie universe (or MSMU as no one calls it) was something special after "Iron Man" in 2008. The second Nick Fury showed up after the end credits and told Tony Stark that he was part of a larger world full of super-powered nutbars and costumed weirdos, the Marvel movies began to form into a cohesive whole, structured similarly to their comic book counterparts. And after "Iron Man" set the table by netting nearly $600 million, it was up to the big green guy to smash it to bits with "The Incredible Hulk," the second theatrical Hulk outing following Ang Lee's Freudian freakfest (which I kind of love) "Hulk."
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, April 14th. The fate of one category, Best Hero, rests in your social-media-savvy hands. In this rousing opinion piece, Splash Page writer Ryan Rigley passionately explains why Catwoman deserves your vote.
With the 2013 MTV Movie Awards just on the horizon, we here at MTV Splash Page have been completely divided on the subject of who should win the award for Best Hero. Sure, candidates like Iron Man, Batman or even the Hulk seem like the obvious choice to make, thanks to their own feature films and TV shows. But what about the underdog? Or rather... the undercat. Yes, that's right. My vote is for Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman.
In "The Dark Knight Rises," Catwoman only steps up to the plate when it counts the most by saving both Gotham City and Batman from a fate worse than death. She doesn't ever pretend to be something that she's not, which is a quality that ever hero should have. While Selina may steal priceless diamonds and act in her own interest, she still proves herself to be a good person, managing to pull through and make the right choice despite her own questionable morality.
MTV's third annual Sneak Peek Week kicks off tonight with an early look at this summer's all-star comedy "This Is the End." Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Evan Goldberg will be on hand tonight to debut new footage from the film before its release on June 12th. The exclusive clip airs on MTV at 11 p.m. ET. Following the debut, MTV's Josh Horowitz will chat with the cast live, exclusively on MTV.com.
Unlike pretty much every other feature film, the actors in this movie all portray themselves as they struggle to survive Los Angeles after its upended by a series of apocalypse-level events. Watching these comedians deal with food rationing and cabin fever will be insanely funny, sure, but what would actors from superhero films be like in the event of the end? These actors have regularly faced horrific (albeit CGI) events and most of them have had to go through some physical training.
Here are the five actors we want on our side when things go down.
Robert Downey Jr. While Downey Jr. probably doesn't possess Tony Stark's technological genius (no suits of armor being built in this scenario), he has pretty much every other quality. The guy is incredibly charismatic and quick-witted; he'd be a dream to have in bargaining situations with other roving groups of survivors. Plus he's already traveled all over the world and lived through his fair share of trials. He'll keep a cool head.
Yesterday the Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Zoe Saldana is in talks to play Gamora in 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy." I want this to happen so badly that my fingers are still crossed, making it vry harz to typoi. Zoe Saldana would be the perfect Gamora, a green-skinned extraterrestrial character whose nickname is "the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy." If you don't know why she'd kill it in this role (puns super intended), check out the evidence below.
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.
If you somehow missed the debut trailers for "The Wolverine" that dropped this morning, then hurry up and watch them! And if you have already watched and analyzed the trailer frame-by-frame, then welcome to the club. I thought it'd be nice to close out Wolverine Day (as March 27th will forever be known as) with a GIF wall of our favorite moments from the trailer.
Except for that Viper-skin-peeling part. That's disgusting.
The unofficial "Wolverine" week continues here on Splash Page with two, yes two, full-length trailers for this summer's mutant movie. These trailers have everything we expected to see (ninjas) and more (more ninjas!). It was actually hard to narrow all of the must-see moments from these two trailers down to 20, so you'll definitely want to rewatch the trailers a million times to catch everything.
Here are 20 must-see moments from "The Wolverine" trailers!
» Somebody get Wolverine some hair product, stat!
» We all know from the first X-Men film that Wolverine plus bar equals property damage.
If you've been waiting for Earth's Mightiest Heroes to be rechristened Earth's Mightiest Morphin Avengers, then wait no longer (also, that's a very specific thing to wait for). One fan has re-edited "Marvel's the Avengers" to perfectly line-up with the original opening credits of "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," because they just had to, okay? It's pretty spot-on, and surely hits the nostalgia button for every Marvel fan born in the mid-to-late 80s.
If this exists, then surely a mash-up of the Avengers with "Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers" can't be far behind.
