Thor Sequel: Kat Dennings Will Return

It appears that sequel, Thor: The Dark World will indeed feature the return of Kat Dennings' Darcy Lewis, the spacey sidekick of Natalie Portman's Jane Foster.

According to Deadline, Dennings, who is currently enjoying high-rated success on the CBS comedy, 2 Broke Girls, will find time to return to the Thor franchise for what is said to be an expanded role. 

With most of the original cast returning, along with additions such as former Chuck star, Zachary Levi replacing Josh Dallas as Fandral, and former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston as villain, Malekith The Accursed, it will certainly be interesting to see what's in store for the tantalizing taser-toting hipster.

Thor: The Dark World hammer-strikes its way to theaters on November 8, 2013.

RED 2 Teaser Poster Arrives

RED 2, the sequel to the 2010 film about aging retired spies has released its first teaser poster.

Returning stars, Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren will be joined by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough, Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow from the G.I. Joe films), and the great Anthony Hopkins as its villain.

With a solid amount of action and comic relief, the first film certainly delivered enough of its own Expendables-like dream-cast chemistry. Now, the "Retired, Extremely Dangerous" crew are back for more mind-blowing action, cracking bones aside.

RED 2 cuts-down bad guys with a razor-sharp AARP card at theaters on August 2, 2013. Check out the poster below.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Finds A Director?

Marvel's upcoming feature, The Guardians of the Galaxy may have found a director for its 2014 film featuring the cosmic super-team.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Gunn, writer/director of the 2006 meta-infused, tongue-in-cheek horror flick, Slither is in talks to helm this most curious of comic book films. Of course, Slither starred geek deity, Nathan Fillion, a well-known player in the universe of The Avengers director, Joss Whedon.

Also responsible for an array of quirky campish work under Lloyd Kaufman's Troma banner, as well as satirical superhero film, Super, Gunn could be taking the big plunge into what might be, on paper, one of the most ambitious (and riskiest) comic book films ever.

While the report claims that Marvel is in "exclusive talks" with Gunn, Marvel has yet to confirm Gunn's status as director. Additionally, the names of directors, Peyton Reed, Ryan Fleck, and Anna Boden are reportedly still in the mix.

Is James Gunn the right man for the job?

Russian Supercat

Posted August 20, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This cat was sent to Earth from his destroyed planet to ensure that his new home of Russia is safe from plow-thieves and seditious female punk bands, while ensuring that vodka supplies remain as high as Putin's biceps.

His only weakness is a rare element from his home planet fallen to earth in the form of glowing green meteorites ...also, his proclivity to be distracted by laser pointers and balls of yarn.

Bullet To The Head Trailer Goes On A Killing Spree

The first trailer for Sylvester Stallone's upcoming epic, Bullet To The Head has hit with a white-hot vengeful fury.

Based on the French graphic novel, Du Plomb Dans La Tete by Alexis Nolent, this film, much like Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand (whose trailer also just hit,) will surely look to capitalize on the post-Expendables 2 momentum of old-school action goodness.

Check below for the action-packed pulse-pounding trailer, as Sly, looking like the most ripped 66-year-old ever, teams up with an unlikely partner for revenge; the most satisfying motivation for an action hero there could be.

The Avengers 2 Release Date Officially Confirmed

It's official: The Avengers 2 has a date you can mark on your calendars. Now, fans can be damned well sure that Marvel's movie mega-team will avenge the box-office on May 1, 2015.

With the news confirming last week's rumor, the sequel will enjoy a three-year gap from the first film, during which, the landscape of Marvel movies will have changed drastically with Iron Man 3 (May 3, 2013), Thor: The Dark World (November 8, 2013), and Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014) -- Not to mention The Guardians of the Galaxy sometime in 2014 and the film debut of signature Avengers member, Ant-Man.

With director, Joss Whedon locked-in, you can bet that this sequel to the nearly $1.5 billion-grossing powerhouse is going to redefine the already redefined expectations for comic book films.

It looks like 2015 is the year the team defends the Earth and the cosmos against a power-hungry Mad Titan named Thanos, who, like Michael Jackson, appreciates wearing a single sparkly glove.

Daredevil Film Rights Return To Marvel

It seems that Marvel's "Man Without Fear" will soon be brought into the fold of Marvel's movie stable as Sony's long-in-the-making plans to reboot the Daredevil film franchise just slipped through their fingers.

With the project apparently not on track enough to make the Oct. 10 deadline to begin production, it does appear that the film rights to Hell's Kitchen's blind costumed criminal-crusher could very well send him into the same movieverse as The Avengers, just as it was in 2006 when Thor reverted back to Marvel from Sony.

Considering that the proposed reboot seemed on track, how did it all fall apart for the Sony film?

"To The Batcab!"

Posted August 15, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Sure, it's technically "not a car," but the redesigned recession edition of the Batmobile also makes Batman some money on the side lugging-around tourists.

It may not be the vehicle Batman deserves, but right now, it's the one he needs.

Bane Is Your Dirty Car's Reckoning

Sure, Bane might be trying to end Gotham as we know it.

However, just as he wants to cleanse the city of its unworthiness with a glorious explosion of fusion, he also believes it's your responsibility as someone alive in this world who gives a damn about your own stuff to cleanse your vehicle.

He may have been born in darkness, but that doesn't mean your interior has to live in it, covered by dirt and...who knows what else.

Bane's Life After Batman

Baxter
Posted August 10, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

Saturday Night Live alum, Chris Kattan is brilliant in this unofficial epilogue to The Dark Knight Rises focusing on life after the supervillain spotlight.

After you've humbled Batman, held all of Gotham hostage, instigated one of the biggest jailbreaks ever, and weaponized green energy technology, it's kind of hard not to end up a "one-hit-wonder" in the world of supervillainy.

For Bane, it seems that Gotham has become HIS recokoning with the mundane aspects of everyday life. (You try maintaining that giant muscle build while working-off 275,000 hours of community service.)
