While Steven Spielberg practically reinvented the modern science fiction adventure film withJurassic Park in 1993, very few people know that he almost got the chance to include dinosaurs in the first Indiana Jones prequel nearly 10 years earlier. More

‘Avengers’ Cast And Stingy Marvel Ready To Rumble Over Sequel Cash & Strong-Arming

Robert Downey Jr is set for another huge payday from a mega-hit Marvelmovie, this time Iron Man 3. I’ve learned he’s already made $35 million from the actioner, which grossed $680 million worldwide in its first 12 days. He should exceed his biggest payday to date — that $50M from The Avengerswhich I’ve learned was more like $70M-$80M now that the film is all in. But it’s reallyAvengers 2 where he’ll clean up big-time More

Most infamously, that includes (alleged) changes to the Turtles’ backstory, based on previous comments made by Bay “way” back in 2012. More

Five Marvel Heroes That Deserve Their Own Movie in Phase III

Black Panther – Do we really need to sell you on how freakin’ awesome it would be to see T’Challa on the big screen? We’ve already been introduced to Vibranium in the MCU, which is Wakanda’s principal export, so why not introduce us to its black-suited badass king too? In the hands of the right actor – *cough* Idris Elba *cough* – we think that Black Panther could quickly become a fan favorite and could easily anchor his own solo outing. If the guy landed Storm as his queen, do you really think he’s going to let a lack of brand recognition stop him? We didn’t think so. More
