It seems that Fox—which controls the X-men and Fantastic Four film franchises— and Sony—which controls Spider-Man—have come to an agreement to create their OWN variant earth-2 Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with a cut scene at the end of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Foreign viewers are already tweeting about it. I’ve greyed out the relevant info below.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is currently filming in Aosta, Italy which has to be tough because one bowl of pasta and it’s going to show in your spandex, but luckily, as these photos show, some of the costumes have pasta-concealing features. Elizabeth Olson said she wasn’t going to go around in a scarlet swimsuit as The Scarlet Witch and she is sure not wearing a swimsuit. Sensible shoes and everything!

As you may have recalled, Ridley is actually one those big comics fans in Hollywood and spent a while writing comics for Wildstorm, including a run on the Authority, the mini-series Razor’s Edge: Warblade, and The American Way. The latter is a book that really deserves to be on more comics reading lists—an 8 issue mini-series drawn by Georges Jeanty and Karl Story that has similar themes to Darwyn Cooke’s New Frontier about the cold war and superheroes, but treats them with a much harsher view. The book follows the government’s development of the Civil Defense Corps, a pr-driven team of superheroes introduced in the early 60s, and the turmoil that stem from the first African-American member in the Civil Rights era. A lot of comics mini-series have tried to be “the Next Watchmen” and The American Way is one of the few series that takes that tired “What if superheroes really existed???” idea and gives it a take based on the real world and not the imagined one.

Tweet I admit I watched this trailer twice in a row, even though the best parts were in the footage floating around. Finally, a character based “superhero” movie? Is this really a superhero movie? Or an SF comedy adventure? Whatever it is, I’m sold. The trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel and USA today has more […]

Tweet What could be cuter than the above image of Ryan Reynolds talking to a kitty and a puppy and…a woman’s severed head? Oops. It’s all part of Marjane Satrapi’s directing career.
