Avengers
I think everyone knows Marvel scored a smash hit with “The Avengers” back in 2012. Thus far, its sequel, “Age of Ultron”, has kept a pretty low profile. Other than the odd casting news here and there, fans have been left anticipating what the finished product is going to look like. With that being said, it has now been confirmed that an early glimpse of Marvel’s eagerly anticipated “Avengers” sequel will air on ABC next month.Read More

It’s been three months now since Paul Walker died and production was brought to an indefinite halt on the set of “Fast and Furious 7,” which he had been halfway into shooting, but now it appears things are getting back on track and the franchise is set to move forward without Walker and his character, Brian O’Conner. Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Michell Rodriguez and the rest of Dom’s gang will be returning to finish the film in April, according to THR.Read More
Comic-Con wouldn’t be Comic-Con without a major presentation from Marvel Studios, which has become the cornerstone of Hall H’s film lineup. Thousands of fans camped out overnight in front of the convention center for the last panel of the day on Saturday, July 20th, 2013, and were not disappointed. Tom Hiddleston kicked off the presentation in a big way by showing up in full blown Loki mode, encouraging the crowd to scream his name, then declaring: “It seems I have an army.”Read More
One of the most shocking and crowd-pleasing moments during Warner Bros’ panel at the San Diego Comic Con on Saturday came when “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder stepped onto the stage and thanked the fans for supporting the film, and revealing that (of course), another one is on its way. But he didn’t stop there. Actor Harry Lennix was brought onto the stage, and read a message in a booming voice under a spotlight: “”I want you to remember, Clark, in all the years to come. In all yourRead More
It’s a fair point that the San Diego Comic-Con moves further and further away from its comic book fandom origins every year, but at least summer tentpole blockbusters will allow the big film panels in Hall H to remain somewhat on topic for the foreseeable future. Even as YA adaptations begin to take over, comic book movies are just as big business and today’s new additions should come as no surprise. Sequels are the name of the game this year, with Marvel bringing “Thor: The Dark World” (out this October)Read More
The youth-driven powerhouse duo of Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are the first to announce film panels at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, now just a few short weeks away. Not surprisingly, Young Adult adaptation franchises dominate their lineup, with “Divergent” and “Ender’s Game” kicking things off with panels on Thursday, July 18th and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” keeping things going on Saturday, July 20th. On Thursday, “Divergent” is bringing nearly its entire cast – Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Ansel Elgort and more – asRead More

Aca-obvious! Musical comedy “Pitch Perfect” was one of the surprise hits of the year, so it’s clear why Universal is already talking about doing a sequel. One of the stars of the original film, Skylar Astin, tells MovieWeb that the studio is already talking to him and his fellow cast members about reprising their roles: “I do have a meeting with a Universal representative next week. And I know that Rebel Wilson had hers last weekend. It’s definitely a talking point.” The Jason Moore-directed original film starred Anna Kendrick, AnnaRead More
Iron Man is getting another sequel, Thor is getting his, so it’s no surprise at all that Chris Evans will return as the leader of The Avengers in “Captain America 2″, scheduled for release on April 4, 2014. Disney/Marvel announced via press release today that Steve Rogers will be returning, but chances are, his cohorts from the original film, including Hayley Atwell as Rogers’ first love Peggy Carter, won’t. Rogers will remain in modern times, probably leaving Carter and his fellow soldiers back in the 1940s. Captain America will followRead More
