Magneto Wolverine

by Brett White

While talking up his new drama—the critically-acclaimed "Prisoners"—to The Daily Beast, Hugh Jackman dropped a bit of info regarding Wolverine's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in next year's mutant movie, "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

"It's fair to say we don't get on that well," said Jackman in a definite understatement. "I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that."

Fans eager to meet the fall's hottest new superhero will have a chance to do so at this year's New York Comic Con—just don't expect an autograph. You know, because cars don't have hands.

Chin Han

There isn't much Chin Han can tell you about his upcoming role in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," except for this: working with Robert Redford was a dream.

Already known to comic book movie fans for his role in "The Dark Knight" as cowardly crook Lau, Han is set to join the opposite side of the law with his role in "Winter Soldier." He's one of the members of the World Security Council, which means he'll have a decent amount of screen-time with Redford, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D. head Alexander Pierce.

"I got to act with my childhood film idol, Robert Redford, and that's a gift in itself," said the actor in a new interview. "He's amazing, he's in his 70s but he is a good looking man."

SHIELD

by Brett White

The LA Times' Hero Complex has published an in-depth look at the long road "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has traveled, all the way from being an idea in executive producer Jeph Loeb's mind after watching the Marvel short film "Item 47," all the way to being quite possibly the fall's most highly-anticipated drama.

The article includes over a dozen new photos of the cast on their elaborate set, which mimics the interior of the giant, state-of-the-art S.H.I.E.L.D. airplane that the sextet uses to traverse the globe, tracking down new super-threats. Actors Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, and Chloe Bennet can be seen shooting the fourth episode of the show. In addition to the photos, the article reveals a few new facts about the pilot. Check out the facts and photos after the jump!

Channing Gambit

by Brett White

In a new interview with Total Film, "White House Down" duo Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum both open up about a few comic book movies. Yeah, Jamie Foxx does have a few words to say about the possibility of the Sinister Six popping up in a later "Amazing Spider-Man" film, which is something that co-star Paul Giamatti has mentioned as well. "They actually talked about doing the Sinister Six, so fingers crossed," says Foxx. But maybe this shows my X-bias a bit, but the real interesting part of the clip involves Channing Tatum and the charismatic X-Man, Gambit.

"I would like to play Gambit," said Tatum. "Gambit's my favorite, cause I'm from New Orleans—or around that area, my dad's from New Orleans—and I like to do the Cajun accent, and I can do it for real."

Black Widow

by Brett White

While talking to Super Hero Hype to promote her next film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Don Jon," Scarlett Johansson opened up about the unexpected pairing found at the heart of next year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."

"The pairing is strange on paper," said Johansson, "but you'll understand the pairing when you see 'Cap 2' and of course Marvel's really good at noticing those connections [between characters] too! They will continue to build on the different relationships that audiences connect to."

Kat Dennings

by Brett White

One of the biggest surprises in 2011's "Thor" was just how funny it was, and many of those one-liners came from Darcy, Jane Foster's college intern played by Kat Dennings. Being the sarcastic comic relief, Darcy could have easily been plucked out when the time came for a sequel. Instead, Dennings' fantastic performance made the character essential, and she stole pretty much every scene she was a part of in "Thor." Now the charater and the actress are back on board for "Thor: The Dark World."

While the character has only been briefly glimpsed in the films first few trailers, Dennings recently told the Los Angeles Daily News to expect a lot more from Darcy the second time around.

"She's really bad at real science in this first movie," said Dennings. "In the second movie, she's more interested, but she still doesn't know anything about it... Darcy does many amazing things, the content of which I will probably get snipered if I reveal."

Odin

by Brett White

The latest character poster for "Thor: The Dark World" has something that the previous ones for Loki and Malekith didn't have: ravens. And Anthony Hopkins, yeah, but also ravens.

Thor's father Odin is the focus of the newest poster for the next Marvel movie, a movie that he will hopefully remain fully conscious throughout—unlike 2011's "Thor," where Loki's scheming caused Odin to slumber for a good chunk of the film. Joining Sir Anthony Hopkins on the poster are a number of birds, two of which one could assume to be Odin's ravens from Norse mythology, Hugin and Munin. The duo of birds have also played a role in the Marvel Comics version of Norse mythology, having debuted in 1978's "Thor" #274. Yes, I did do a bit of research for this post. Check out the full poster after the jump!
