Marvel Provides Info on ‘Captain America 3: Civil War’ and ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ Parts 1 and 2

Marvel’s upcoming movie slate continues to be worked out. The latest news brings the new Captain America 3 film title and also the unveiling that the third Avengers movie will not actually be the last in the planned trilogy but rather a Harry Potter/Hunger Games style film that is to be divided into two movies. Shocking! That is an original idea Marvel. I’m glad you came up with it. I am sure that it is only with the intent of providing the best possible experience creatively for those behind the project and nothing to do with money. That’s refreshing. Here is the full slate now, as provided by Deadline:

Here’s Marvel’s updated release slate:

May 5, 2015 – Avengers: Age Of Ultron
July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man

May 6, 2016 – Captain America: Civil War
November 4, 2016 – Doctor Strange

May 5, 2017 – Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 (previously July 28, 2017)
July 28, 2017 – Thor: Ragnarok
November 3, 2017 – Black Panther

May 4, 2018 – Avengers: Infinity War – Part I
July 6, 2018 – Captain Marvel

The Marvel ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Movie Trailer Debuts

The Marvel ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Movie Trailer Debuts

The Marvel ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Movie Trailer Debuts

Marvel’s Avengers is the 3rd biggest movie ever at the domestic box office. This, to me, is silly, but the direction that our moviegoing and moviemaking society have headed. On one hand, I get it. It’s based on a comic book, has enough big name actors both old and young to appeal to  a wide ranging audience (in theory). On the other hand, it’s a fookin’ comic book movie, which we’ve been seeing turn out with greater frequency in Hollywood for years. Alas, there is no point in resisting it (or so I am told). Here is the brand new, Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer. The Avengers 2 if you will. Enjoy.

Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ Gag Reel Video Shows Even Lighter Side of Superheroes

Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ Gag Reel Video

The cast and crew of The Avengers apparently had some fun making a make-believe movie that would go on to set the box office ablaze. In this video, which is owned by Marvel, many of the stars of the cast are shown with laughs, gags, in-jokes and more. From villains to the heroes, from Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo to Liam Hemsworth, many of your favorite and least favorite castmates are here. You’ll also notice the use of green screen technology in most of these shots, which further emphasizes how little a big and audacious film like The Avengers can be. Check ou the video and enjoy. Thanks to THR for the shout out.

Movie News Update: ‘Avengers’ Director Joss Whedon Sticks With Marvel

Movie News Update: ‘Avengers’ Director Joss Whedon Sticks With Marvel

The Avengers Director and TV’s “Buffy The Vampire” creator, Joss Whedon has landed a three year deal with Marvel Entertainment. As part of the deal, Whedon, who helped bring The Avengers a cool $616 million in domestic box office and well over $1 billion worldwide, will direct The Avengers 2, a sequel to the mega hit.  Also as part of the agreement, Whedon will help cultivate a TV series for Marvel, in conjunction with ABC and assist in overseeing other Marvel properties development.

Whedon’s next picture, Much Ado About Nothing, will likely prove that he can’t sell a pic that is a difficult sell, and therefore, that Marvel’s money could have been questionably spent. I’m not hating on Whedon, I am telling the truth on how Hollywood works. Despite Whedon’s talent, it was the stars and concept that sold The Avengers, not Whedon’s creative vision (though I am not suggesting it hurt). Still, this is a great deal for Whedon and a potentially marginal one for Marvel, depending on the terms of the deal.

Movie News & Movie Rumors Round-Up: Avengers sequel, Hayley Atwell, Cameron Diaz, The Wolf of Wall Street, more!

Here is the latest in Movie News, Movie Casting, Movie Rumors from the last week in the Film Industry

Not surprisingly, this past week has been much about The Avengers, which broke the all-time opening weekend box office record for money earned this past week.

Also, to nobody’s surprise, Marvel/Disney announced that a sequel to the film is in the works. This was what they term in basketball as a “bunny”. No brainer.

Cameron Diaz is stepping into the “femme fatale” role inhabited by Angelina Jolie in Cormac McCarthy’s The Counselor. Remember The Road? Yeah, that was Cormac.

This guy is going to be joining Martin Scorcese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. I never knew his name before.

There is a 10 Things I Hate About You sequel, which advances the original storyline, but stars Captain America‘s Hayley Atwell. I really liked the first film…13 years ago.

Here is a breakdown of the jury that will be deciding the Palme D’or at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Among the, Diane Jruger, Ewan McGregor and Alexander Payne. Diverse group.

An Avengers Review, Film Critic A.O. Scott, The Film Nest & Samuel L. Jackson: A Closer Look

An Avengers Review, Film Critic A.O. Scott, The Film Nest & Samuel L. Jackson: A Closer Look

A Closer Look at The Film Nest’s “Involvement” With Avengers Star Samuel L. Jackson and NYT Critic A.O. Scott

When New York Times film critic A.O. Scott posted his review of Marvel’s new blockbuster The Avengers, he probably had no idea of the commotion he would cause. Avengers star, Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Avengers leader Nick Fury, came out on twitter bashing A.O. Scott. What wasn’t clear is what he was bashing. Was he bashing the review? Was he bashing the reviewer? It seemed personal, when Jackson tweeted “#Avengers fans,NY Times critic AO Scott needs a new job! Let’s help him find one! One he can ACTUALLY do!” Jackson seemingly took offense to Scott’s review of the film, saying that the film’s best scenes are the ones “when the assembled heroes have the opportunity to brag, banter, flirt and bicker.” Scott was not a fan of the over the top action. Sounds fair enough to me.

Scott didn’t really say anything bad about Jackson, his only notes being “Mr. Jackson, with an eye patch and his well-practiced bellow, is more master of ceremonies than mission commander.” Again, this is not so much a dis, I don’t think Scott was expecting an Oscar-worthy performance from someone who is a lower tier star (or at least role) in the film, behind the likes of Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and other heroes. A man should not be fired for coming out with a slightly negative film review. I pointed this out. In response to Jackson’s tweet, I said that I was “disappointed” at Jackson’s “irrational” response to the sarcastic review from Scott. Jackson then called The Film Nest out, shouting “That is My Opinion! @TheFilmNest & what’s irrational about it? They aren’t going to fire his jaundiced ass & You & I Know It!” This was discussed in a sense at E! Online. He’s now called Scott “jaundiced” – a term he didn’t really use correctly, since Scott did see the film, but I digress.

All I did was point out that a man losing his job for expressing an opinion seemed “irrational.” Jackson exclaimed that it didn’t seem so, which further stoked the fire. Maybe Mr. Jackson’s Nick Fury eye patch has obscured his view. In response, hundreds of tweets have come The Film Nest’s way, which distorted the entire story. Most have called critics “useless”. Some have called The Film Nest “racist.” Others have said The Film Nest acts “like the movie was made for your tight ass” and that Sam Jackson “was right to slam @TheFilmNest.” Really?

Samuel L Jackson Nick Fury Avengers

"My eye patch has obscured my view of what's rational and what's not, it seems."

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, despite so many of them from people who clearly never read Scott’s review of the film, never understood what The Film Nest’s position in the matter was, but rather jumped in to bash where they could, or came out in support of Jackson, like crazed fans who would support anything. This puts the future of the world in a bit of a scary place in my eyes. It’s the old gossip line about how one person tells a story, and by the time the story makes the rounds, it has been bastardized into something far different than originally intended. Scary and sad for those that are misinformed.

A few cool heads understood it all and a few even said things like “Why on earth would someone be fired for not liking a movie? Film criticism is (largely) subjective.” True. Others said “You can’t fire a critic for their opinion, not everyone is going to like the movie. What the hell Sam?” Agreed. In truth, I laughed all along – even tweeting to Sam “Like snakes on a plane, your twitter followers react w/ great vengeance & furious anger. They give all others the shaft. :)” I’m sure this fell on deaf ears to those who weren’t in the know, but it’s meant for those that get it.

For those that did, that’s the true story of the matter and those in the know should be applauded for having a clear view of the situation, Mr. Jackson and so many pointless drones who aimlessly bash, notwithstanding. Enjoy Avengers or not, makes no difference to me. In fact, I hope you do, considering you paid for a good time. That’s what movies are there for in the first place. To entertain and take us to another place. Peace.
