Underneath the green body paint, shredded muscles and shredded(er) purple pants, The Hulk has an identity crisis. Marvel's big green guy has been played by three boldface names in the past decade: Eric Bana in 2003's maligned, Ang Lee-directed "Hulk," Edward Norton in Louis Leterrier's 2008 "The Incredible Hulk" (one of the earliest of Marvel's Phase One pictures) and, finally, Mark Ruffalo's affable portrayal of Bruce Banner in last summer's "Marvel's The Avengers."
This trio, however, could have been just two: Leterrier revealed that he originally had his eye on Ruffalo, not Norton, to play the Hulk. Get More »
Dave Franco (yes, the James Franco's little
doppelganger brother) is called "The Sleight" in the upcoming heisty magic movie "Now You See Me," and now he's ready to prove that his hand skills do indeed live up to that moniker ... and also that, just like his brother, his intellect is likely of the right-brain nature.
Franco and real-life magician — or should we say as real-life as magicians get — David Kwong teamed up for this new promo video for the film in which Franco smiles maniacally and throws cards at the camera. It's a technique called, you guessed it, "card-throwing" and Franco proves to be pretty apt at it. It's all in the wrist, of course! Get More »
[From MTV News] As with all of Marvel's movies, "Iron Man 3" ended with an Easter egg — this time, a little button of a scene between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and a decidedly unengaged Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), as the eponymous superhero recounts his post-"Avengers" experiences.
According to Mark Ruffalo, that scene was conceived and abandoned at least once before time actually came to film it. Get More »
The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young
yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »
Literary fan-fiction is so 2010.
The newest thing in weird character 'shippery is Tumblr, and when it comes to "Marvels' The Avengers," no one's a hotter fic pairing than The Hulk and Iron Man himself right now.
For the uninitiated, there's this little internet trend called "Science Bros.," and basically it's all about the unexplored bromance of "Avengers" smarties Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). Get More »
The new year is fast approaching and, on the Internet, that means just one thing: Time to put together some top 10 lists. And since "The Avengers" was undoubtedly the film event of the year — $1.5 billion worldwide doesn't lie — we thought it would only be fitting to ring out the old by taking a look at the Top 10 Avengers of 2012.
Just how awesome are the Avengers? They're so awesome that they get a Top 10 list even though there were only six of them in the movie. Get More »
"The Avengers" arrives on Blu-ray this week and, as you might expect, it's chock full of bonus clips, special features and even a brand new 10-minute short film. It's pretty epic.
But before you start diving into the special features, there's something else you're going to want to watch first: The movie itself. That's because director Joss Whedon and the folks at Marvel crammed the film with so many Easter eggs, cameos and moments that make you go "hmm" that even the most dedicated fan couldn't catch all of them.
With that in mind, then, and with a great big spoiler warning, here are eight things in "The Avengers" you may have missed the first time around. Get More »
This week: The biggest blockbuster of the year, "The Avengers," is likely to become the best-selling home video of the year as fans can't seem to get enough of Marvel's Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America teaming up to battle Loki and an army of hostile aliens.
Also new this week is the hilariously twisted Danish comedy "Klown," the thriller "Barricade" starring Eric McCormack and a collection of all 22 James Bond films called, simply, "Bond 50."
"Are you a big guy that gets all little ... or a little guy that, uh, sometimes blows up large?"
It wouldn't be a Joss Whedon movie without a heaping helping of self-referential meta-dialogue; the people who live in the universe of "The Avengers," even the blue-collar workers, have apparently gotten used to living in a world where there are, well, superheroes with weird superpowers. Get More »
You knew it was inevitable, that this day of reckoning would finally come: "The Avengers" has a gag reel.
And what a gag reel it is.
Set brilliantly to Jerry Reed's "Eastbound and Down," a.k.a. the theme song to "Smoky and the Bandit," these bloopers make it look like "The Avengers" may have been the most enjoyable $200-million Marvel Studios ever spent. Get More »
