Ant-Man

by Brett White

What is HAPPENING?! After Edgar Wright proved that he could do no wrong with this summer's out of this world "The World's End," anticipation for his first foray into the Marvel Universe has increased like whoa. We want "Ant-Man" and we want it now, and not even a new, earlier July 2015 release date will satisfy us. Give us Hank Pym and/or Scott Lang ASAP (and Janet Van Dyne, while you're at it)!

Now the director has tweeted a picture that hands-down wins the internet, and this is the day after a certain someone popped up on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Yeah, this is exciting. Check out the full tweet after the jump!

Korath Nebula

by Brett White

If you didn't know that fellow Academy Award nominated actors like John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, and Glenn Close were involved in Marvel's upcoming "Guardians of the Galaxy," then respected actor Djimon Hounsou's involvement in a movie that also stars a machine-gun-toting raccoon might seem a little bizarre. But when you look at the wider, eclectic cast, it all somehow makes sense and goes a long way towards making "Guardians" the Marvel movie to watch.

Hounsou recently talked about his role as the Kree warrior Korath the Pursuer to the Source, and just how he got involved in the Marvel movie-verse.

"I was called in and when I met them and talked about various characters and the director James Gunn is somebody I really like and wanted to work with and so this was a great opportunity to be part of something that I can remember, something that can be instrumental for my son."

by Brett White

It's been a little while since we checked in on the various internet rumblings surrounding next year's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and while no big announcements have been made, Comic Book Movie has brought a few new interesting updates to our attention. While there are no ferrets this time around, there is another cuddly creature involved with "Guardians."

Yondu Rooker

by Brett White

Will he was initially pegged as Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Walking Dead" star Michael Rooker ended up landing a role that requires more than just his voice—he is Yondu Udonta, one of the original Guardians from the Marvel comics. Rooker's been spotted on set in his new blue-skinned persona, surrounded by just the exact right amount of carnage for Rooker.

Guard the Galaxy reported that the actor recently took over the Twitter account for Valhalla Entertainment, where he then answered a few questions from fans looking for answers. For those of you wondering why Rooker hopped on board a Marvel movie, Rooker has your answer: "I'm in a Marvel movie and its paying my mortgage right now. Love Marvel. S---Yes!!!!!!"

Guardians

by Brett White

Things have been relatively quiet for "Guardians of the Galaxy" as it has moved into the latter half of its shooting schedule. August began with a blockbuster week, including leaked footage and the first real set photos featuring Glenn Close, and last month ended with the biggest news of all: Bradley Cooper is voicing Rocket Raccoon.

Even though things have seemingly (temporarily?) calmed down for "Guardians," the film's cast and director are still very active on the Internet. With that in mind, here are a few updates that you may have missed if you don't follow the online exploits of director James Gunn and Dave Bautista, who plays Drax.

Guardians of the Galaxy

by Brett White

With "Guardians of the Galaxy" set to hit theaters in just under eleven months, it seems about right that director James Gunn has revealed that the production is just over halfway through with principle photography. The director revealed this fact via his Spring.me page, where he's been answering questions at a steady pace for the duration of his association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When asked how much of the movie he had shot so far, Gunn replied, "A little over half." Another question involved a big more abstract math, asking what percentage of the film was comedy, drama and action. "It doesn't work like that," answered Gunn, thus ending the movie math lesson.

Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt, jumped in on the math via his Twitter feed. You can check out the tweet after the jump.

Guardians

by Brett White

How director James Gunn still has time to interact with fans, answer questions, and tweet while also directing "Guardians of the Galaxy," I'll never know. Just earlier today we reported on how he went on record saying that the "Guardians" footage from SDCC will not be released online in any official capacity, and he has just now tweeted about some footage that we desperately want to see.


One shot? Are you kidding me? It's like every day I reach new levels of excitement for this movie

X-Men days of future past

by Brett White

As production on "X-Men: Days of Future Past" neared completion on Friday, director Bryan Singer took two of the most interesting TwitPics yet. One focused on what appeared to be a mutant museum exhibit—or trophy room—and the other showed Michael Fassbender wearing an entirely different kind of Magneto costume.

Now, as revealed in another TwitPic over the weekend, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has wrapped principle photography after starting way back in March. You can check out the tweet after the jump!

Magneto

by Brett White

Yet another tweet from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer reveals that mutants are not immune to "Breaking Bad" fever—even if those mutants are in 1973.

The latest pic comes as the film nears the end of principal photography and shows Michael Fassbender sporting a killer hat and sunglasses combo that bears an uncanny resemblance to Walter White's nefarious drug-dealing alter-ego on "Breaking Bad." Could Singer be setting up a reveal that Magneto was the original Heisenberg?!

No, no he's really not. But the new pic does show off more of Fassbender's Magneto, who we haven't seen since he got wet and wild with Beast back in June. Check out the full tweet and photo after the jump!

Artifacts

by Brett White

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer loves his TwitPics, that's for sure. So far he's dropped hints about Quicksilver, shown off a full-sized Sentinel, given us a tease of Mystique, and today he took his followers on a quick tour of someone's mutant museum—and part of it ain't pretty.

The full picture contains a number of artifacts linking "X-Men: Days of Future Past" to it's predecessor, "X-Men: First Class"—including the coin Magneto killed Sebastian Shaw with, Havok's damaged flight suit, Magneto's helmet, and Angel Salvadore's wings. That last item is the gruesome one, hinting at a not-too-happy ending for the almost X-Man. But who could this display belong to? Could these be some of Bolivar Trask's trophies, following a wave of Sentinel destruction? Or are all the props from past X-Films kept up in such a neat way?

You can check out the full tweet and TwitPic after the jump!
