Kevin Feige Confirms Connection Between The Incredible Hulk and Spider-man: Homecoming

In the recent Reddit Ask Me Anything session with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, one question that was asked concerned Martin Starr.

We know that Starr played the Science teacher and head of the Academic Decathlon Team, Mr. Harrington, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but many may not remember that he also played the role of “Computer Nerd,” who Edward Norton’s Bruce Banner bribes with pizza to in order to access the Culver University computer lab in the movie The Incredible Hulk. So during the Ama, Feige was asked if we can assume that Starr’s characters are actually the same person. He responded simply with, “I do.”

That’s so cool! It’s so funny that even characters as small as Mr. Harrington have story arcs throughout the McU. Martin Starr will be back this summer to reprise his role in the upcoming Spider-man: Far From Home, which opens on

The Locarno Film Festival will pay tribute to leading South Korean actor Song Kang-ho, marking the first time this prestigious prize has gone to an Asian film personality.

The fest also underlined the versatile talent’s masterful turns in works by South Korean filmmakers such as Bong Joon-ho, Hong Sang-soo, Jee- woon Kim and Park Chan-wook that have propelled him to top star status at home and made him an international name.

His standout roles include turns in big-budget blockbuster “Shiri” (1999) directed by Kang Je-gyu; Kim Jee-woon’s wrestling comedy “The Foul King” (2000); Park Chan-wook’s “Joint Security Area” (2000); “Sympathy for Mr Vengeance” (2002) and “Thirst” (2009), Bong Joon-ho’s “Memories of Murder” (2003) and “Snowpiercer

Kevin Feige Reveals That Two McU Characters Are Actually The Same Person

Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the best Marvel movies for fun supporting roles, from Donald Glover’s Aaron Davis to Hannibal Buress’ Coach Wilson to Chris Evans’ meme-able cameo. There’s also Martin Starr as Peter Parker’s teacher Mr. Harrington, who escorts Spidey and his Academic Decathlon team on their trip to Washington.

Harrington was actually Starr’s second role in the McU though, after he made a brief cameo in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk six years earlier as a student in the computer lab at Culver University who encounters Edward Norton’s Bruce Banner. The character is unnamed in the movie, but Kevin Feige’s now confirmed that this is a younger Harrington in his college days. The Marvel Studios president revealed the news in response to a fan during his first Reddit Ama yesterday.

It’s worth noting that the novelization for The Incredible Hulk previously stated

Oscars 2020: Best Supporting Actor Predictions

Oscars 2020: Best Supporting Actor Predictions
It’s way too early to predict the Oscars, especially in the supporting categories. But looking at Hollywood’s upcoming slates sight unseen, which movies have the right stuff to go the distance?

Studios tend to premiere their movies in Cannes as a launch pad for international release. That’s the case for “Rocketman” starring Taron Egerton as Elton John, Dexter Fletcher’s follow-up to $900-million juggernaut “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It also stars Jamie Bell as songwriter Bernie Taupin and Richard Madden as John’s lover.

And then there’s the return of Terrence Malick, whose “The Tree of Life” won the Palme d’Or in 2011 and went on to score three Oscar nominations. After delivering a series of “Tree of Life” spin-offs, Malick takes a new route this time with “A Hidden Life,” about Austrian conscientious objector Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), who would not fight for the Nazis in World War II.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Fan Theory Predicts Namor the Sub-Mariner Will Be Black Panther Villain

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Fan Theory Predicts Namor the Sub-Mariner Will Be Black Panther Villain
Avengers: Endgame” has been billed as the definitive ending to the first 22 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which started over a decade ago with 2008’s “Iron Man.” While the blockbuster is mostly concerned with bringing Iron Man and Captain America’s stories to a close, a new theory online suggests the film also subtly kickstarts the next phase of Marvel movies. One potential easter egg in “Endgame” confirms the aquatic character Namor the Sub-Mariner is heading to the McU in the future and is already causing some trouble.

Early on in the movie after the film jumps ahead in time five years, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is seen chatting via hologram with various other Avengers about potential threats to humankind happening throughout the world. Okoye (Danai Gurira) tells Black Widow there are sub-oceanic earthquakes occurring off the coast of Africa. Black Widow asks if the earthquakes needs to be handled,

Marvel Still Has Plans For General Ross And Abomination In The McU

Avengers: Endgame wraps up every film in the McU to date, but one movie that’s always felt like an outlier of the franchise is 2010’s The Incredible Hulk. Mark Ruffalo taking over from Edward Norton in The Avengers left its canonicity shaky, though William Hurt later returned as General Ross – now Secretary of State – in both Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.

Now, we’re hearing that another character from Incredible Hulk could be returning at some point in the future, alongside Ross. We Got This Covered has heard from our sources that Marvel still has plans for William Hurt in the franchise, as well as Abomination Aka Emil Blonsky, the Green Goliath’s nemesis in the movie who was played by Tim Roth in his human form.

Marvel Reportedly Developing Thunderbolts Movie, The Leader Will Be The Villain

When it comes to comic book properties that fans have long argued should be adapted for the McU, the Thunderbolts are right up there. The group of supervillains looking to redeem themselves for their crimes would be a neat next step for a franchise continually looking to try new things, and it seems the studio is finally ready to take that step, according to our intel.

A source has informed We Got This Covered that Marvel is in the midst of developing a Thunderbolts movie. There’s a hope that this could be the first of a series, too. We don’t know which characters, pre-established or otherwise, will feature, but we have been told which villain these not so good guys will face. It’s apparently Samuel Sterns Aka the Leader, last seen in 2010’s The Incredible Hulk.

Two-and-a-half days from now, an 11-year, 22-movie journey will end with Avengers: Endgame. It all started in 2008. I was a 16-year-old in awe at Robert Downey Jr. turning Iron Man from a C-List character to the cornerstone of a movie multiverse. In 2019, I’m a jaded 26-year-old chasing recognition at the bottom of the stunt journalism bottle. Two weeks ago, my editor (Brendan Klinkenberg) offered me a deceptively simple task.

‘Skin’ Trailer: Skinhead Jamie Bell Wants His ‘American History X’

‘Skin’ Trailer: Skinhead Jamie Bell Wants His ‘American History X’
After winning the Oscar earlier this year for Best Live Action Short, Israeli filmmaker Guy Nattiv makes his English-language feature debut this May. Under the same title as the award-winning short, “Skin” follows an American neo-Nazi skinhead who turns informant on his white supremacist cohort. The newly released first trailer offers a glimpse of “Billy Elliot” star Jamie Bell in a far different look from his breakthrough role; he dons a smattering of face tattoos and, of course, a shiny bald buzz.

The official synopsis reads: “After a difficult childhood drives him into the grasps of a white supremacist gang, Bryon (Bell) tries to escape to a new life, all the while questioning whether he’s capable of undoing — and repenting for — the evil he’s done.”

“Skin” promises another interesting turn for Danielle Macdonald, breakout star of 2017’s “Patti Cake$.” She plays Bryon’s girlfriend, a single mother

25 Hidden Things Fans Completely Missed In Fight Club

It’s hard to believe that it was twenty years that director David Fincher’s all-out attack on Generation X, Fight Club, debuted. Thanks to studios not knowing how exactly to market the black comedy, it quickly became a big cult movie. Had they known to market it as such, it might have gone down in the public eye as the best movie of the nineties, even with all of the bleak undertones.

For those that haven’t seen the movie, first – where have you been for twenty years?! Secondly, it’s the story of two friends who start a secret club as one of them descends into madness, attempting to use the club to introduce a little anarchy into the population. That doesn’t sound like a dark comedy, but after watching the movie, you’ll be able to see how absurd the whole situation is.
