Joseph Gordon Levitt is our new Batman (probabaly)

Hit-Fix says that not only does Warner Bros. want Joseph Gordon Levitt to become the new Batman in the 'Justice League' movie set for 2015, and a new series of Batman movies after that, but the studio is acting so quickly to wrap this deal up that they speculate he may also make an appearances at the end of the new Superman movie, much like how the individual Avengers movies included quick scenes showing other members...read more

Robert Downey Jr. will make $50 million for 'Avengers'

When all is said and done, ‘The Avengers' will probably settle in as the third highest grossing movie of all time (after just 19 days it's already number 11 with almost $1.1 billion), above the $1.32 billion the final 'Harry Potter' made, but well below the $2.78 billion for 'Avatar' and the $2.18 billion for 'Titanic'. So it would seem the deal made for Robert Downey Jr. that pays him box-office bonuses and a...read more

'The Avengers' made 205 million, smashes old record

Until now, ‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2' had the biggest opening weekend ever when it made $169M, and though the numbers won't be official until later today, ‘The Avengers' reportedly made $205 million in it's opening weekend, more than double the old record (or maybe not "double". I'm not great with numbers.) It's now made almost $650 million worldwide, meaning a lot of high-priced call girls are...read more

as expected, 'the Avengers' is huge

The fact that 'The Avengers' is a huge success both critically (out of 213 reviews on rotten tomatoes, 93 percent have been positive) and financially (deadline says it will make around $67 million just today in the US, bringing it's worldwide total on it's first day to $371 million) really just proves what many of us have suspected all along; using your imagination while reading a book is complete bullshit. Why even...read more

new 'Avengers' tv spot has Hulk smashing more shit

The third TV spot for 'the Avengers' was released today (here you go) showing the alien army for the first time and explaining why, despite his glib attitude, Loki does indeed have a lot to fear. Mostly that the Hulk has a scary growl and can jump really far and then smash the shit out of everything when he lands. There's a girl with a gun and a guy with a bow and arrow too, but Tony Stark wisely raced past that part....read more

its the Avengers trailer

At long last, 'the Avengers' finally has its first trailer (HD copies here), though it does little more than explain the very basics of the story and blow some shit up. I hope that chubby cop can out run the chain reaction of exploding cars in the begining! It doesn't look good to be honest with you.read more

its the, ahem, "first look" at the Avengers

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly has the first look at the new Avengers movie, unless you count the hundreds of other articles and pictures dating back over a year, footage and pictures of them in action on set, and an official trailer that ran behind 'Captain America'. Oh you probably saw Captain America at that point too. SInce the movie was about him. Same with Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, etc. But other than those...read more

Edward Norton is still whining

To recap: Hulk, starring Eric Bana as Bruce Banner, was generally considered to have failed at the box office, so Marvel pretended like it never happened and made an all new Hulk movie starring Edward Norton. That didn't help, and it only made 5 million more than the first one (worldwide gross - budget = 114 vs 109). Now Marvel is making a movie based on the Avengers, this time with Mark Ruffalo playing Bruce Banner,...read more

its the Thor comic-con trailer

(NOTE - trailer is still up, just give it a few seconds to load) The 5-minute 'Thor' trailer shown exclusively at Comic-Con over the weekend is now slightly less exclusive, because it got leaked online today. Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Girl and Anthony Hopkins as One Eyed Anthony Hopkins are all prominently featured, but it still gets a little dull because it's so much longer than a normal trailer. At...read more
