'Thanks for Sharing' Trailer: Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow Are Sex Addicts

Considering how tight Tony Stark and Bruce Banner were by the end of "Marvel's The Avengers," Iron Man can't be psyched about the Hulk hooking up with Pepper Potts.

Loki Won't Be Avenging Anything in 'Avengers 2'

Loki in 'The Avengers' Marvel

Another hit for the Hiddlestoners: it looks like Loki won't be back to his badboy antics in time for "The Avengers 2."

Director Joss Whedon spoke to Empire Magazine about some of his plans for the second "Avengers" installment, and it was not good news for Tom Hiddleston, who also recently lost out on leading up that reimagination of "The Crow" despite some over-the-top effort on his part.

Movie Cliché Du Jour: Bad Guys Getting Caught on Purpose

Star Trek Into Darkness Paramount

WARNING: SPOILERS RUNNING FREE.

Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.
