Mark Ruffalo Dropped a Big Endgame Spoiler Last Year and Most Fans Forgot

Mark Ruffalo Dropped a Big Endgame Spoiler Last Year and Most Fans Forgot
Mark Ruffalo dropped an Avengers: Endgame spoiler over a year ago. Like the sun rising or Tom Holland leaking spoilers, there are only a few guarantees in life, and Ruffalo's spoiling tendencies can be thrown into that category too. The news comes after it was revealed Holland let an Endgame spoiler out while doing press for Infinity War last April. The young actor let it slip that Benedict Cumberbatch has the hardest lines in the movie because he has to talk a lot about the Quantum Realm, which is not in the last installment at all. Whoops.

Now, it appears that Mark Ruffalo was really looking forward to a new team-up while promoting Thor: Ragnarok in October of 2017. When talking about pairing up with Thor for the Taika Waititi movie, Ruffalo stated that he was really into his new partner in Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, though he did not

Shazam! Star Zachary Levi Wanted A Trilogy Of Thor And Warriors Three Movies

With Shazam! star Zachary Levi’s Dceu debut just around the corner, it’s easy to forget that the actor also had a brief stint in the McU as Thor series regular Fandral.

Replacing Josh Dallas in the role for 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, Levi’s run in the Marvel universe lasted just two movies and ended unceremoniously with his character’s death in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok. But while Fandral and his fellow Warriors Three members Volstagg and Hogun remained largely underdeveloped in the McU, the heroes have often been far more prominent in the comics, and in an interview with Empire, Levi lamented how the trio never got to live up to their full potential.

“I just don’t think those characters were quite utilized to the best of their abilities,” Levi explained. “Thor and the Warriors Three could have been a really cool little trilogy of team movies,

In Another Blow to Physical Media, Samsung Is Done Making Blu-ray Players

  • Indiewire
In bad news for proponents of physical media, Samsung has announced that it is exiting the Blu-ray market. The company said it “will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the Us market” in a statement shared with CNET. Its newest model was released in 2017, and plans to produce a new high-end 4K player this year were scrapped. The move follows a similar decision by Oppo, which announced its own exit from the market last April.

In addition to the fact that streaming movies and TV shows has become the norm over the last several years, Blu-ray hasn’t managed to fully replace DVD as the go-to form of physical media in the way that DVD did to VHS — even after besting the short-lived HD DVD in a format war 11 years ago. Any number of high-profile and/or well received movies have yet to be released on Blu-ray as a result,

Josh Gad Trolls Mark Ruffalo Over Frozen 2 Spoilers

Josh Gad Trolls Mark Ruffalo Over Frozen 2 Spoilers
Frozen 2 actor Josh Gad is having a bit of fun at Mark Ruffalo's expense on social media over potential spoilers for the highly anticipated sequel. Disney just dropped the first trailer and fans have been pretty happy with what they saw. However, like any good trailer, the Frozen 2 footage provides way more questions than answers and Gad, along with the rest of the cast have to keep their secrets for quite a long time now, which is something that Mark Ruffalo is all too familiar with.

Mark Ruffalo famously spoiled Infinity War well ahead of the release date in an interview. Actor Don Cheadle was also involved in said interview and has since declared that he refuses to do interviews with Ruffalo after he let it slip that everybody in the movie dies. With that firmly in his mind, Frozen 2 actor Josh Gad posted a pretty epic troll.

Box Office: Captain Marvel Shooting For Huge $100M-Plus Opening Weekend

Captain Marvel looks set to light up the domestic box office with what will be the first truly heroic debut of 2019.

Per Variety, the female-fronted superhero flick is currently tracking for a $100M-plus opening in North America, with some independent analysts predicting a figure closer to $120M based on positive word of mouth. Excitement for Captain Marvel is palpable, so we fully expect those numbers to ebb and flow as we approach release day.

Either way, a $100M debut far exceeds that of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which earned $75M in its opening weekend off the back of the $2 billion dollar titan that is Avengers: Infinity War. But Captain Marvel heralds the beginning of a new franchise at Marvel Studios, and by all accounts, it looks as though Carol Danvers will be off to a flyer.

Shari Sebbens rises to the challenge of ‘The Heights’

When Shari Sebbens graduated from Nida and Waapa she expected her fair complexion would mean she would be cast mostly as white characters in shows about Indigenous people.

Happily she was wrong. After making her screen debut in Wayne Blair’s 2012 hit The Sapphires she starred in a bunch of series including Redfern Now, The Gods of Wheat Street, 8Mmm Aboriginal Radio and Black Comedy, all true to her cultural identity.

“I think The Sapphires confused the hell out of everybody as they thought, ‘She looks white but she says she’s Aboriginal,’ she tells If. “It’s something our community has known since colonisation: our people come in very different shades. I call it the Fifty Shades of Black.”

The actress will next be seen in the Matchbox Pictures/For Pete’s Sake Productions 30-episode drama serial The Heights,

Captain Marvel Star Brie Larson Reportedly Signs Huge 7-Movie Deal With Marvel Studios

Back in October, a report got some traction that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson had signed on to make seven movies with Marvel Studios, and while the actress herself was quick to deny the claim, it seems that Disney may have such a deal lined up for the Oscar-winner after all.

Citing THR as their source, ComicBookMovie.com reports that Larson has signed a seven-picture deal that will see her playing Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and five other films. The report adds that the actress is being paid $5 million for Carol’s solo movie alone – a figure that comfortably exceeds the amount earned by Chadwick Boseman for Black Panther ($2 million) and stands at ten times Robert Downey Jr.’s fee for Iron Man.

Berlin Doc ‘Merata’ Explores Life of Pioneer Maori Female Filmmaker

  • Variety
The emotionally powerful documentary “Merata: How Mum Decolonized the Screen,” which is screening at Berlinale, tells the intimate story of legendary Maori filmmaker Merata Mita, who helped to kick-start indigenous cinema from that corner of the world. Directed by her son, Hepi Mita, it’s also a personal journey through their family life, as Hepi explores how important and trailblazing his mother was in her field of work, and how her passion for the arts informed many aspects of her life, before she died in 2010. “It was daunting to be so intimate. On one hand I wanted to craft an honest and emotional portrayal, and on the other I wanted to protect myself and my family,” says Mita, who adds that “it’s a very delicate balance, especially when your perspective is so ingrained in the subject matter.”

The film showcases never-before-seen footage and offers up extremely open accounts of

Taika Waititi's What We Do in the Shadows TV Show Looks Delightfully Absurd

Taika Waititi's What We Do in the Shadows TV Show Looks Delightfully Absurd
Thinking about watching yet another movie or TV show about vampires generally fills me with dread - thanks, Twilight - but FX's TV adaptation of Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi's What We Do in the Shadows is a rare exception.

The 2014 mockumentary is hilarious and original, following undead trio Viago (Waititi), Deacon (Jonny Brugh), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) as they struggle with the more mundane aspects of modern life - paying rent, following a chore wheel, and trying to engage in New Zealand's nightclub scene. Now the movie has gotten a Us makeover, and the first trailer looks just as delightfully absurd as the original.

Set in New York City this time around, the TV series will again follow three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years. It stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Proksch and has Clement and Waititi on board once again,

Here’s When The First Captain Marvel Reviews Will Go Live

Captain Marvel is now just under a month away from reaching cinemas, and so far, Marvel Studios has managed to generate more than enough hype around Carol Danvers’ solo debut, which managed to land a place on the ‘Most Anticipated Films of 2019’ lists of quite a few polls and publications.

Still, if you’re waiting for the early reactions to come in before deciding whether or not to make that trip to theaters, you may be interested to hear that the social media embargo for Captain Marvel lifts on Tuesday, February 19th at 9:30pm Pst, before the review embargo lifts on Tuesday, March 5th at 6:00am Pst. That means we have just over a week to wait before Twitter begins flooding with responses to Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s upcoming film, and two more weeks after that before the publications have their say.

Mark Ruffalo Wishes Tom Hiddleston A Happy Birthday With Hilarious Post

Happy birthday, Tom Hiddleston!

The British actor, most well known for playing everyone’s favorite trickster god Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is 38 today. And to celebrate, fellow McU star Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter to share a hilarious and surprisingly adorable post.

Ruffalo, who’s played Bruce Banner opposite Hiddleston in three movies so far – The Avengers, Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War – wished his pal many happy returns and then jokingly added: “50 is hell. But it gets better.” Attached to the tweet was a Gif capturing a moment in which Ruffalo snuggles up to Hiddleston from behind.

Will Avengers: Endgame Introduce Professor Hulk Into The McU?

The latest promotional image for Avengers: Endgame revealed some new looks for the reassembled original Avengers, from Black Widow’s red hair to Hawkeye’s new ‘do to Iron Man’s Mark 85 armor. We were already expecting these alterations, however, thanks to previous leaked concept art. What we weren’t expecting was the CGI rendering on the Hulk which has us theorizing that the Green Goliath might be in for a bigger transformation than the rest.

Check out the image in the gallery below and you’ll notice that Hulk more closely resembles Bruce Banner than he has before. Now, this could just be another redesign of the other guy’s features in order to make him more like Mark Ruffalo, as has happened due to improving visual effects since he first played the part in 2012’s The Avengers. However, could there be an in-universe reason for Hulk’s more Banner-esque features this time around?

Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” Covered by Transformers Band The Cybertronic Spree

Here’s a video of a band called The Cybertronic Spree, who apparently dress up pretty extensively as Transformers and do covers of rock songs. In this video, they cover “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. Led Zeppelin is one of my favorite bands of all time, and I’ve never heard anyone sing a song of theirs as well as Robert Plant. So, this cover is fine, not bad. I’m sure it’s even better if you’re not a hardcore Led Zeppelin fan. My kids think it’s fun because it’s Transformers singing the song from Thor: Ragnarok. I guess that is pretty fun. Anyway, enjoy:

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will use James Gunn’s script, confirms Chris Pratt

Marvel’s plans for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may have hit a major stumbling block last year with the departure of director James Gunn, but Chris Pratt reassured fans earlier this week that the film is still happening, and now the Star-Lord actor has confirmed to MTV that the plan remains to use Gunn’s script for the third instalment in the superhero space opera series.

“Yeah, it’s off the chain, it’s so good, it’s so good,” said Pratt with regards to Gunn’s Guardians Vol. 3 script. “I love James and I’m loyal to James and I love him so much. We’re gonna deliver the movie, we’re gonna give the fans what they deserve. And I think it’s in the nature of the Guardians of the Galaxy to come together and get the job done. And that’s what we’ll do.

Movie Poster of the Week: Jeff Goldblum in Posters

  • MUBI
Above: character posters for Thor: Ragnarok (2017) and Hotel Artemis (2018).Jeff Goldblum is having a moment. After being in movies for 45 years, the 6'4" 66-year-old actor is suddenly the coolest man on the planet. He was all over Sundance last week with his new film, The Mountain, and starting today the Quad Cinema in New York is playing “The Goldblum Variations,” a retrospective of sixteen of the tall guy’s best films.Ever since his debut as Freak #1 in Michael Winner’s Death Wish (1974), Goldblum has been a compelling, quirky presence in movies. He was a supporting player for some ten years before his break-out role in Lawrence Kasdan’s The Big Chill (1983) which led to starring roles in John LandisInto the Night (1985) and David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986). His major leading man period lasted about a decade before he comfortably became an ensemble player once again (naturally fitting right

Nick Fury Makes Fun Of Carol In New Captain Marvel TV Spot

As the first Marvel Studios release of the year, it isn’t too surprising to see that Captain Marvel is being given a hard push at the moment, with the film arriving in roughly a month. And following a brand new TV spot that dropped during the Super Bowl, we now have yet another new promo for Marvel’s first female-fronted standalone movie, which carries with it the burden of a 10-year legacy of premier superhero content.

That places the onus on Carol Danvers’ shoulders to continue the studio’s hot streak, and at least based on this appetizing slice of footage, it certainly looks like Captain Marvel will deliver – it may not be “one of the best films ever made,” but it’ll be a success nonetheless. You can check out the latest promo up above and judge for yourself, but it’s without a doubt a tantalizing tease

Pratt Confirms Gunn's Guardians 3 Script Will Be Used: It's Off the Chain

Pratt Confirms Gunn's Guardians 3 Script Will Be Used: It's Off the Chain
James Gunn may no longer be directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but his influence over the movie will still loom large. Gunn was fired by Disney last year over a series of old, offensive tweets that were dug up by those who were unhappy with his political views. While there was a large campaign to get the filmmaker his job back, he's moved on to direct The Suicide Squad for DC. However, Chris Pratt, who portrays Star-Lord in the franchise, says not only are they still going to use his script, but also that it's very good.

Prior to being fired, James Gunn had completed his script for the movie. After the dust settled, it looked as though Disney and Marvel were still at least going to use his script, even though a new director will be brought in to helm the project. Now, Chris Pratt, in a recent interview,

Chris Pratt Confirms James Gunn's "Off The Chain" Script For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Be Used

While we know that Marvel Studios will make Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 one day, it’s not going to happen in the timeframe that they originally planned. The studio still hasn’t been able to find anyone to direct the film, but it’s been said a few times already that Gunn’s script will be used when the project does move forward.

Chris Pratt reconfirmed the news of Gunn’s script, and in the process says that it’s “off the chain.” While talking to MTV News, Pratt said:

“It’s off the chain, it’s so good… I love James and I’m loyal to James… [and] we’re gonna deliver the movie. We’re gonna give the fans what they deserve…It’s in the nature of the Guardians of the Galaxy to get the job done, and that’s what we’re going to do.
