Mark Ruffalo in Talks to Bring The Hulk to Thor: Ragnarok

avengers

According to a report from Deadline, Marvel Studios is in the process of wooing Mark Ruffalo to bring the Hulk back in the upcoming film, Thor: Ragnarok. Rumors about the return of Hulk and Ruffalo’s involvement have been churning around the mill for weeks and might possibly be true considering the actor has been listed under the cast list for the film on Imdb.

Thor: Ragnarok, which will be the third installment in the Thor franchise, will see the return of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif. However, the plot of the film has not been released.

The script for the film will be written by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World), Craig Kyle and Thor comic book writers Jack Kirby, Stan Lee and Larry Lieber. The film will be directed by Taika Waititi (Green Lantern) and produced by Kevin Feige.

Thor: Ragnarok is set to be released Nov. 3, 2017.

Ant Man Sequel’s 2018 Release Pushes Captain Marvel to 2019

marvel-studios-logo2

Earlier this month, Marvel announced that Ant-Man would be getting a sequel by way of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it will be hitting theaters in 2018. However, this new addition to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe means pushing back the Captain Marvel film to 2019.

This is not the first time that Phase 3 has been shifted and it is started to feel like we can’t believe anything in that schedule. The first shift occurred when Sony’s Spider-Man deal with Marvel was announced. That announcement means that Black Panther will move from a July 6, 2018 to a Feb. 16, 2018 release and now Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019 rather than Nov. 2, 2018.

Marvel has also added three untitled films for 2020 on May 1, July 10 and Nov. 6.

Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released July 6, 2018. Ant-Man will next appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

First Deadpool Red Band Trailer Released!

deadpooltestfootage-main

The comic book movie fans have been waiting years for has officially released the first official trailer. Deadpool has released the first full-length trailer as promised when Deadpool released a “trailer trailer” earlier this week. The red band Deadpool trailer debuted on Conan last night, earning the episode a TV-MA rating due to the content, which is to be expected considering, you know, it’s Deadpool.

Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds in the titular role based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero. It tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

The rest of the cast is equally impressive. It features T.J. Miller from “Silicon Valley,”  Ed Skrein who you may recognize as the first incarnation of Daario Naharis in “Game of Thrones,” and Morena Baccarin from “Firefly.”

Deadpool comes out on Feb. 12, 2016. Watch the red band trailer below or if you have virgin ears, check out the green band trailer here.

Agent Carter Renewed For Season 2 – Moving to Hollywood!

Agent_Carter_S-953767559-large

Thank the old gods and the new, “Agent Carter” was renewed for a second season. Then at San Diego Comic Con this year, we learned some very exciting information about the upcoming sophomore season. Jeph Loeb spoke with executive producers Chris Dingess, Tara Butters, and Michele Fazekas and cast members James D’Arcy (Edwin Jarvis) and Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) at Comic-Con about the characters, the popularity of the series, and what’s ahead in Season 2.

Peggy Carter will be moving from her haven in New York City to Hollywood. Looking at what fans can expect from season two, Butter said, “We are off to Hollywood.” It’s 1947, approximately six months after the first season ended. Fazekas explained, “Things are different… not everyone is in New York anymore. There’s some history we’re not quite sure about.” She said some people aren’t talking and we don’t know why, and Carter gets a call to go to Los Angeles to investigate a murder. Fazekas said, “Just changing the location generates such great stories and interactions between the characters.”

But don’t worry, Peggy’s right hand man, Jarvis, will be already in Hollywood.

Fazekas explained, “He’s been there helping Howard Stark set up his new estate in Beverly Hills. He’s [Howard] doing government work.” Howard has also started a movie studio. D’Arcy asked if he gets to meet his wife, and it seems like the answer is yes. Thought just because D’Arcy does, apparently the audience may not this season.

Then, one of the questions that is always on fans minds, is whether Peggy will finally find love again after Steve. Fazekas said, “I would say that Peggy has put Steve’s memory to rest and has a couple of new opportunities.”

Atwell also commented how she has loved playing the now iconic character and how the quality of writing was clear from the very first script.

“There were so many nuances of character.” She continued, “She’s [Peggy] has taken over my life in such an amazing way… It’s changed my life.”

Daredevil Casts Elodie Yung as Elektra for Season 2

daredevil

Season 2 of Marvel’s “Daredevil” on Netflix is shaping up to be even cooler than the first one (though that will be tough to beat.) It has already been announced that the Punisher will show up in the second season but it was also announced that Elektra will also appear in season 2.

Marvel revealed this week that French actress Elodie Yung has been cast in the role of the famous female antihero and occasional lover of Daredevil.

Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb said in a statement,

“After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity. Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.”

The last time we saw Elektra onscreen, she was played by Jennifer Garner in the 2005 film Elektra and 2003 Daredevil. 

Yung has not appeared much in America when it comes to film and television save for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. But she is poised to make a HUGE name for herself with her upcoming role in “Daredevil.”

 

 

Daredevil returns to Netflix in 2016.
