If Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" can encapsulate the majesty and heart inherent to the Superman mythos as deftly as this unofficial title sequence does, then we are all in for a real treat come June 14th. Creative production company Will & Tale put together the sequence below. From having Kal-El's crash to Earth immortalized on YouTube to the close-ups of Clark Kent's trophy collection, these credits update the hero for modern times while still keeping that classic spirit intact. Even though I know this sequence won't be in "Man of Steel," I have to admit, it has gotten me a little more pumped for it.
This latest batch of TwitPics cover a wide range of subjects, from fog to lounging K-9s to the anatomy of a certain irradiated spider. You can check out all three TwitPics below, courtesy of Marc Webb's prolific Twitter account.
"When they signed us, they signed us for three. So that's it for the moment, but you never know," she told Empire. As for her fourth appearance in "The Avengers," she added, "'The Avengers' happened late. It was Robert who said that Pepper has to be in this movie or it's just giant snakes coming out of the sky. We need one grounded beat. And to be totally honest, I haven't seen the movie. It's crazy. My son has seen it, but I haven't. I went out to New Mexico for a day and shot... actually, maybe it was one and a half. Anyway, it was very short."
Add "exclusive advance screening tickets to 'Man of Steel'" to your shopping list, because you will soon be able to purchase those tickets alongside eggs and super rad t-shirts at America's largest retail chain, Walmart. This partnership between a studio and a retailer marks a first for the entertainment industry. Superfans will be able to purchase tickets at almost 4,000 Walmart stores starting at 8 a.m. on May 18th, with tickets limited to four per customer per visit. The advanced screening itself will take place on selected local theaters on June 13th at 7 p.m., which means you'll have only a few hours of gloating to do before the masses descend upon the theaters at midnight that night for the wide release.
"I hope so. I hope. I don’t know if I'm in 'Avengers 2' yet, but if I am, I'm definitely going to do my damnedest to try." I definitely echo Mackie's sentiment, as Falcon was one of the five heroes I want to see in the sequel.
What was long suspected was revealed to be true yesterday: Daredevil's film rights belong with Marvel again. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed it after months of fans assuming that was the case; the rights were said to have reverted back to Marvel after Fox failed to get a "Daredevil" reboot up and running before the expiration date. Not that Fox didn't try, with pitches by both David Slade and Joe Carnahan amounting to nothing.
The first "Daredevil" film is not remembered fondly, which is a shame considering how important the character is to Marvel Comics. His comic series, which has been running since the character's debut in 1964, contains more seminal runs than most others. Frank Miller did two highly influential runs on the book (the latter with art by the legendary David Mazzucchelli), followed by Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr.'s lengthy run. Kevin Smith and Joe Quesada made the character relevant again in the late '90s, and then Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev created the most iconic iteration of the character since his Miller heyday. "Daredevil" is currently enjoying critical acclaim under the guidance of writer Mark Waid and artist Chris Samnee.
With so many great and highly respected comics in his briefcase (Daredevil is a lawyer, so... briefcase), it'd be foolish for Marvel to not turn him into their next Iron Man. Here are a few ways they could make that happen.
The Vine video pans across a row of actor chairs on set, all labeled with the actor's character name. Two surprises are included, alongside Logan, Xavier, Magneto, Storm, Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Colossus and Blink: Bishop and James "Warpath" Proudstar. Check out the Vine video below.
We're only days away from the release of the new trailer for "Red 2," and some new posters for the upcoming movie have been released in anticipation of that big event. Two posters featuring John Malkovich's Marvin Boggs and Bruce Willis' Frank Moses have made their way online that show the characters engaging in day-to-day activities while still looking like total badasses.
Frank walks through a supermarket holding a handgun and a basket of groceries, while Marvin walks through a field of sheep with an RPG in his backpack. This tongue-in-cheek style of marketing is exactly what we were hoping for in this new movie, and it looks like director Dean Parisot has provided. Check out both posters below.
Wednesday is new comic book day, which also means it's new potential-movie-source-material day. Here are all of the comics and collections out today starring the comic book characters from the movies and television shows of today, tomorrow and yesterday.
Of particular note this week: hop on board "Journey Into Mystery" with issue #651 as it starts a new storyline full of Asgardian hijinks; catch up on the X-Men/Avengers mash-up team with the first collection of "Uncanny Avengers"; and get pumped for "Man of Steel" with any of this week's new Superman releases.
Lee Pace, best known for his roles in "The Hobbit" franchise and the TV series "Pushing Daisies," is taking on a decidedly darker role. The actor is in final negotiations to play the villain in Marvel's initial cosmic outing, "Guardians of the Galaxy." The news comes hot on the heels of Ophelia Lovibond's casting in a mystery role, and the two may be linked.
Rumors persist that Lovibond is playing an aide to the Collector, an elder being of the universe who wishes to collect artifacts in order to preserve them from annihilation. The problem: he sometimes collects living people. If Lovibond's character is correct, then is it safe to assume that Pace will portray the Collector?
