Avengers: Endgame TV Spot Has Thanos Ready for Summer's Biggest Showdown

Avengers: Endgame TV Spot Has Thanos Ready for Summer's Biggest Showdown
Thanos has some choice words for Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the latest Avengers: Endgame TV spot. There is just one second of new footage featuring Iron Man, but it does also have some previously unheard dialogue from the Mad Titan before a battle is set to begin. Josh Brolin's Thanos was a key component to the promotional material for Infinity War, mainly because that movie was largely told through the villain's perspective. Now, for Endgame, the perspective has switched back to the heroes as they try and figure out a way to reverse the Decimation and bring back half of the universe.

Josh Brolin's Thanos asks, "Look at the world around you... is it not more peaceful?" in the Avengers: Endgame TV spot as we see the drastic effects of the Decimation shown on the screen. "Avengers, let's finish this," declares the Mad Titan at the end of the spot.

Is Sinister Director Scott Derrickson Making A New Hellraiser?

“Ah, we have such tweets to show you!” Remember when Pinhead said that in Hellraiser back in the day? No? Oh, right, that line might be in the possible near-future reboot that multiple studios have threatened over the last few years. Well apparently, the internet is still hungry for some fresh cenobite action, and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is the new target of this insatiable media machine, after he posted a humorous meme riffing on the Lament Configuration, the MacGuffin of the Hellraiser series.

One of the silly things is that the post is trademarked in 2016, which, let me check my notes…is, like, three years ago? I’m no PR expert, but I feel like they’d make a new awesome meme for the kids to passively absorb rather than reusing old material. Secondly, per my minimalist Seo experience, there was nary a hashtag in sight indicating this

The Marvel Movies Debrief - Black Panther Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

James Hunt Apr 19, 2019

Marvel finally takes us to Wakanda for the McU's 18th chapter: a blistering blockbuster with something more to say...

This article contains spoilers for Black Panther and the wider McU.

There was a time when a Black Panther movie seemed like a gamble. The character, though notable for being the first black superhero, was always a D-list seller in the comics, and one who had rarely commanded much licensing power.

Where Iron Man comics were published near-continuously since the character’s inception, the Black Panther’s staying power was uneven at best. In retrospect, it seems sort of absurd that there was ever any uncertainty.

As it is, Black Panther is currently the highest grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe movie at the domestic (Us) box office, with only Infinity War nipping at its heels. Internationally it lands in a comfortable fourth behind the three Avengers movies. Admittedly,

The Marvel Movies Debrief - Thor: Ragnarok Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Richard Jordan Apr 18, 2019

The Thor franchise gets a new lease of life thanks to Taika Waititi, who gives the God of Thunder his best McU showcase yet

This article contains spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok and the wider McU.

"Life is about growth; it's about change..."

With Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in full swing, having already introduced a couple of major new characters and raised the stakes for the Earth-bound Avengers (in Captain America: Civil War), it was time for the Mighty Thor's third big-screen outing. It's fair to say, though, that the God of Thunder was in need of a bit of a rethink after his largely soulless second adventure, The Dark World. As Chris Hemsworth's Asgardian hero tells his up-to-his-old-tricks brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), sometimes a change can do you good...

The man tasked by Marvel with leading that change was Taika Waititi. And change things he did.

Jeremy Renner Says Stan Lee Will Be Watching Avengers: Endgame With Us

In November of last year, legendary comic book creator Stan Lee passed away, and to a certain extent, the upcoming Avengers: Endgame will stand as one big, 3-hour tribute to the writer’s legacy. In fact, if you ask Jeremy Renner, the man will in some ways be right there with us next week as we make that trip to the theater.

As part of the press tour for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Hawkeye actor stopped by Seoul, South Korea, where he was interviewed by Cna. When asked what he thought Lee’s reaction would be watching the McU’s Phase 3 finale, Renner offered the following response:

“He’s going to be watching it, brother. He’s watching it. He’s in all of us. He’s going to be watching it.”

No doubt Lee will be on the mind of many filmgoers as they go to see next week’s release,

10 Benedict Cumberbatch Roles Most Fans Don't Know About

Benedict Cumberbatch has slowly become one of Hollywood's biggest stars. Most people became aware of him from his critically acclaimed take on a modern Sherlock Holmes in the BBC show Sherlock. His compelling and entertaining performance in that show gained him notoriety, leading to high-profile film roles. He has since become an Oscar-nominated actor for The Imitation Game and is part of the ever-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange.

While Cumberbatch's rise to fame might seem like a case of overnight success, he slowly built a solid career with small roles in smaller projects before getting his big break. He has become a star thanks to roles like Sherlock and Strange, but there are plenty of his roles you might not be as familiar with.

Why Horror Movies Hold The Key To Great Filmmaking

Mark Harrison Apr 15, 2019

With horror directors increasingly tapped for tentpoles like Hellboy and Shazam, why is the genre such a good training ground?

This story comes from Den of Geek UK.

As more and more comic book movies arrive in cinemas, it's become easier to observe emerging trends. A particularly interesting one of late is the growing number of horror directors being headhunted for them. As well as Neil Marshall following Guillermo del Toro by making this week’s Hellboy reboot, last week's big release Shazam! comes from director David F. Sandberg.

Sandberg's previous films include Lights Out, a ghost story that evolved out of his short film about depression, and the surprisingly good Conjuring prequel/sequel Annabelle: Creation. On the surface, his latest is nothing like either of his previous films and yet in other ways, it is.

As delightful as Shazam! turned out to be, there's still a

10 Best Villain Actors Working in Hollywood Today

Tom Beasley on the 10 best villain actors working in Hollywood today…

Ask most actors what kind of role they like playing the most and they’ll tell you that they love having the opportunity to play a full-throttle, moustache-twirling villain. The old adage that bad guys have more fun is definitely true on the big screen, where it’s good to be bad on just about every level.

But not all screen baddies are created equal. There are some actors seemingly born to play the worst possible specimens of humankind – and indeed alienkind – in movies. With that in mind, Hollywood seems to have a travelling rep company of actors who can knock even the most generic of villainous roles out of the park with ease.

In that vein, let’s take a look at the 10 best villain actors in today’s movie world.

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Juliette Harrisson Apr 12, 2019

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 keeps the charm of the first and gives new depth to its characters.

This article contains spoilers for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and the wider McU. This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 sits in a slightly odd position – narratively, chronologically, critically, geographically...

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 was released about halfway through Phase 3 of the McU, in between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, if you’ve paid close attention to the movie, you’ll know that it sits much earlier in the timeline.

Guardians 2 takes place only a couple of months after Guardians 1, while Baby Groot is still a baby, only 34 years after Peter’s parents met. If you’re watching the McU movies in internal chronological order, Guardians 2 comes immediately after Guardians 1 and before Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

‘Game of Thrones’ Language Consultant Working on Dialects for Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

The name David J. Peterson probably does not ring a bell for most people, but he’s the connective tissue between “Game of Thrones” and Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming “Dune.” Peterson is a linguist and language consultant who has spent the last several years perfecting the art of the Dothraki and Valyrian dialects on “Thrones,” while also advising on fictional languages heard in “Doctor Strange,” “Warcraft,” “The 100,” “Bright,” and “Penny Dreadful.” Peterson recently confirmed to io9 his latest gig is working on languages for “Dune,” although the project is under so much secrecy, admitting his involvement is just about the only thing he can say right now.

“I asked [the studio before the interview], especially because it seemed like every day you’re jumping on Twitter and, ‘Oh, this person is working on Dune.’ I’m like, ‘Can I say I’m working on Dune?’” Peterson said. “They said, ‘Yeah you can say you’re working on Dune,

New Avengers: Endgame Promo Revisits Thanos’ Snap

A new international teaser for Avengers: Endgame has just been released, and if you thought that last month’s trailer relied too heavily on footage from previous Marvel movies, then you probably won’t care for this latest preview, which consists almost entirely of Avengers: Infinity War clips.

More specifically, the footage is taken largely from the closing minutes of last year’s release, when Thanos’ snap starts claiming the lives of various heroes. The audio, meanwhile, includes of a mix of Infinity War and Endgame dialogue, starting with the Mad Titan recapping his mission to purge the universe of half its population. After that, Black Widow and Steve Rogers both reflect on the loss they suffered in their previous outing, before Doctor Strange delivers his famous title tease: “We’re in the endgame now.”

Stephen Strange’s line is perhaps a little ironic, seeing how Marvel Studios is still

Original Avengers Share Touching Stan Lee Stories In New Interview

Avengers: Endgame is right around the corner now and is sure to contain superheroic moments designed to put a tear in the audience’s eye. But there’s one scene we know’s going to happen that we can guarantee is going to be emotional: Stan Lee’s cameo.

His appearance in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Captain Marvel already had me welling up, but now that we’ve had confirmation that Endgame will be the final time we see him in the McU, it’s going to be a mighty difficult scene to watch.

It also seems like his passing has particularly affected the cast of the films. After all, due to his cameos, he’s been a presence on set for the last decade and now, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner have sat down with Marvel Studios head honcho

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Doctor Strange Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Kirsten Howard Apr 10, 2019

One of the sillier McU films, Doctor Strange nevertheless packs a spectacular punch.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Strange and the wider McU.

The slightly unfortunate thing about the magical corner of the Marvel Universe is that it’s really very silly, but that also just so happens to be what totally rocks about it. One of the biggest triumphs of Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange is that you can genuinely manage to forget it’s so incredibly silly fairly early on, which is pretty much a miracle when the movie kicks off by giving us a glimpse of the mystical world in the form of a bald Tilda Swinton having some kind of magical glowing fan fight up the side of a rolling Inception building with fandom’s most precious Hannibal Lecter.

Kevin Feige Says It’ll Be A Very Long Time Before X-Men Appear In The McU

Last month, the Disney/Fox merger finally went into effect, giving Marvel Studios the legal go-ahead to bring a whole load of cherished comic book characters into the McU. But while fans were fantasizing about the inevitable X-Men reboot long before the deal was even closed, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has offered a reminder that it could still be a long wait before we see any mutants in the Marvel universe.

In an interview with io9, the producer explained that they already had the franchise’s next few years planned out before the merger was finalized:

“It’s all just beginning and the five-year plan that we’ve been working on, we were working on before any of that was set. So really it’s much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [the X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how
