Another Round Of Concept Art For The Avengers Spotlights Iron Man Vs. Thor

The journey to Infinity War continues apace, and with only 100 days standing between now and Marvel’s event film, Cbm has shared another batch of concept art for The Avengers, Joss Whedon’s modern-day classic that ushered in a new era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And superhero films, in general.

Six years on, and the McU is practically unrecognizable, with enough costumed crusaders and larger-than-life personalities to sink a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier. Speaking of which, Cbm’s media dump features one or two alternate designs for the agency’s flagship vehicle – a super-sized HQ befitting of a James Bond villain.

Also included in the gallery below are several storyboards for the film’s famous fight in the woods, which brought together three Phase One Avengers in Iron Man, Captain America and the God of Thunder himself, Thor. He’s since shaven his luscious blonde locks

Marvel Kicks Off The 100-Day Countdown To Avengers: Infinity War With New Promo

Marvel’s Mad Titan is fast approaching.

As of today, January 23rd, Avengers: Infinity War, a film that seemingly belongs to Thanos, is officially 100 days out from its long-anticipated release in North America.

Word comes by way of Marvel’s official Twitter feed, which begun the 100-day countdown with an epic, 10-second promo (see below) featuring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes charging into battle. Wakanda is at war, it seems, and it’s up to Captain America and his tight-knit crew to save the day.

Other heroes glimpsed in that slow-mo shot include Falcon, Black Widow, War Machine, Hulk, Black Panther, the Winter Solider and Okoye, leader of the Dora Milaje, while Anthony Mackie recently hinted that said fight scene includes another two Avengers not seen in the trailer.

That’s hardly surprising, given Infinity War‘s biggest battle is said to include upwards of 40 characters in total. Exactly how Spider-Man

Unused Sdcc Banners For The Avengers Journey Back To The McU’s Early Years

There’s a moment in The Avengers, just after Bruce Banner reveals his greatest weapon (“that’s my secret Captain, I’m always angry!”), when Joss Whedon assembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in spectacular fashion.

By calling upon a circle shot, Whedon takes viewers up close and personal with Marvel’s finest, resulting in one of the more iconic one-takes in modern superhero history – on the big screen, at least. Hell, one could argue that that same sequence has inspired other key shots in the McU, including Age of Ultron‘s slow-mo jump and the by-now famous scene of Captain America (Nomad?) and friends charging into the Battle of Wakanda as part of Infinity War.

But long before Marvel’s star-spangled patriot was shipped off to the other side of the world to battle Thanos and his minions, Steve Rogers was present during the Battle of New York, and even

Hilarious Justice League: In Search Of The Snyder Cut Trailer Emerges

When it comes to the recently released Justice League, there seem to be two enduring talking points in regard to the landmark team-up movie that had one of the most storied productions of late: Superman’s fabled black costume and the elusive Zack Snyder cut. And while none can be too sure of what tomorrow may bring, we’re guessing that all that’s needed to be said about Kal-El’s threads has been said, so we’re going to discuss the latter.

Unfortunately, today’s talk doesn’t have any sort of announcement accompanying it, perhaps due to the scales tipping in favor of no Zack Snyder cut actually existing. Sure, an assembly cut was screened for studio execs about a year ago at this time, but it was just that: Something rough around the edges that gave a general idea of what the finished product would be. In other words,

Justice League’s Charles Roven Says Producing Dceu Is “Too Big A Job” For One Person

Justice League wasn’t the only disappointment that prompted a big change at Warner Bros. Entertainment.

Soon after the launch and subsequent failure of Batman V Superman, long-time DC producer Charles Roven (The Dark Knight Trilogy) adopted a smaller role at the studio, when his duties were reportedly limited to being an executive producer on sequels to those Dceu flicks he helped launch – see Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad.

Such an internal shake-up took Roven away from the likes of Aquaman and Flashpoint, which are now hurtling toward their respective release dates in 2018 and 2020, given the latter recently appointed John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to direct.

This leaves Charles Roven in an advisory role, though during a recent chat with Deadline, the DC stalwart stressed that producing the current DC Extended Universe is “way too big a job” for one person.

Here Are The Superman Deleted Scenes That Could Be On The Justice League Blu-Ray

With the digital and Blu-ray release of Justice League now just weeks away, we’re taking a look at which of the movie’s deleted scenes may soon be revealed to fans. As you know, the film itself was subjected to extensive reshoots following the departure of director Zack Snyder during post-production. When Joss Whedon stepped in to take his place at the behest of Warner Bros., the movie was drastically reshaped, and not everyone was thrilled with the final product. Many fans have even come out in support of the release of a Snyder cut, in the hopes that the director’s original vision for the film would finally see the light of day.

X-Men’s ‘Greatest’ Romance Has a Super-Creepy Backstory

With Marvel announcing that Kitty Pryde and Colossus will be getting married in June’s X-Men Gold #30, there has been a lot of talk about how great the relationship is between the two of them and, obviously, there have been plenty of awesome moments between the two heroes over the years (especially during Joss Whedon and John Cassaday’s Astonishing X-Men run) but the origins of their relationship remain more than a little bit on the creepy side due to just how young Kitty Pryde was when she and Colossus first began to date.

Incredible Concept Art For The Avengers Takes You Back To Where It All Began

The countdown to Infinity War continues apace – by our calculations, Joe and Anthony Russo’s super-sized ensemble piece is exactly 105 days away from its release in North America – and to fan the flames of excitement, Marvel has now rolled out a gallery of frankly incredible concept art for The Avengers.

Coming to us by way of Cbm, these stills are a timely retrospective of Joss Whedon’s epic, crowd-pleasing crossover, which dragged the Marvel Cinematic Universe to dizzying new heights back in 2012 – $1.5 billion worldwide, to be specific. Now approaching its sixth birthday, The Avengers continues to be the gold standard of Hollywood’s superhero crossovers, and one need only look to Justice League‘s failings as an example of a movie that tried, and ultimately failed, to emulate Marvel’s success.

The McU shows no sign of slowing down, either, particularly now that Disney has agreed to buy out Fox’s entertainment assets.

Justice League Deleted Scene Fixes a Superman Plot Hole

Justice League Deleted Scene Fixes a Superman Plot Hole
While the Justice League Blu-ray won't contain the mythical Zack Snyder cut, it will contain a special feature called The Return of Superman, which is made up of deleted moments possibly shot by Snyder and not Joss Whedon. In a new tease for the Blu-ray release, this 'deleted scene' is briefly featured, and it looks to shed some more light on a part of the Superman story that seemed to just come out of nowhere. It was announced this week after much speculation, that the Justice League Blu-ray will available March 13th after it arrives digitally exactly one month before.

The 29-second Blu-ray announcement teaser video released earlier this week showed a brief clip of the deleted scene, which features a suited-up Superman standing in the Fortress of Solitude.

This Deadly Fan Poster For Marvel’s Black Widow Movie Belongs On Your Wall

Black Widow is reporting for duty in this deadly, jet-black fan poster for the forthcoming Marvel movie.

Drawn up the illustrious BossLogic – and seen in the gallery below along with a few that surfaced last week – this piece ought to be framed for the way in which it blends a silhouette of Scarlett Johansson’s super-spy, Natasha Romanoff, with an over-sized arachnid – the same one from which Black Widow derives her name.

At the risk of fangirling, the detail here is truly incredible, as BossLogic has reappropriated the spider’s famous pattern as a tentative film logo for the Black Widow spinoff, which may well take place in Russia, if Scarlett Johansson has her way. The Avengers star has been quoted as saying that she’d like to explore the nefarious Widow program, one responsible for molding Natasha Romanoff into a world-famous spy.

Lindsay Lohan Wary That Her Past Might Undercut Her Chances Of Playing Batgirl

Lindsay Lohan as the next Barbara Gordon? Don’t count on it.

Despite lobbying for the title role in Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie, Lohan is fully aware that her checkered past may derail the online campaign – regardless of how much momentum (read: Re-Tweets) it manages to build.

On last week’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show (h/t Batman-News), the former Mean Girls actress conceded that because people tend to dredge up her criminal record at every opportunity, the chances of “meeting with people to do Batgirl” are slim at best. Ditto for Mean Girls 2, and we’re not talking about Melanie Mayron’s standalone sequel.

You can’t fault her for trying, as Lindsay Lohan is clearly dead set about taking up the Batgirl mantle for Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon. Still, with such high-profile misdemeanors and probation violations on her record, it’d be a big,

Disappointing Justice League Blu-Ray Only Has One Deleted Scene

This is not what many DC fans want to hear, but it looks like the Blu-ray/DVD release of Justice League will contain just one deleted scene not featured in the theatrical cut of the movie. Fans have been actively petitioning for an extended director's cut of Justice League ever since it was released. Specifically, they want to see Zack Snyder's cut of the movie, since what was released was a Frankenstein of sorts that melded what Snyder did with what Joss Whedon did. It looks increasingly less likely that is ever going to happen.

Even though we may not get a Zack Snyder director's cut of Justice League, we know that Warner Bros. is sitting on a ton of unused footage from the movie. So at the very least, many fans expected to probably get a decent batch of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray release. However, the Walmart

Justice League Concept Artist Shares Up-Close Rendering Of The Caped Crusader

Two members of the Justice League of America, namely Batman and Cyborg, have been ushered into the limelight thanks to some newly-unveiled DC concept art.

Coming to us by way of ComicBook.com, renown concept/creature designer Jerad S.Marantz is the artist responsible for both drawings, which were seemingly submitted to Warner Bros. fairly early on in the creative process – Batman’s suit, for instance, clearly went through “a few changes” before Justice League hit theaters.

Via Instagram:

Justice League Batman costume concept art done for costume designer Michael Wilkinson. There are a few things that changed by the time It got to the big screen. In Batman versus Superman we played around with the idea of armor plates showing through the suit and got to see that in the final justice league version.

Justice League Blu-Ray Includes A Bonus Scene That Skipped Theaters, But No Director’s Cut

It’s no secret that Warner Bros. is on the verge of announcing Justice League on Blu-ray and DVD, but it seems Walmart has beat Warner to the punch.

As reported by Batman-News, the retail giant has posted screenshots of its admittedly beautiful Justice League Blu-ray cover art, which features all six members of DC’s super-team – yes, even Superman is ushered into the spotlight, having spent most of the film’s promotional blitz on the sidelines.

Peer a little closer, though, and you’ll notice that the sleeve itself features a sticker reading, “includes bonus scene not seen in theaters!” A deleted segment, perhaps? Or some never-before-seen footage pulled from the alleged extended version? Who knows.

What we do know, however, is that the Justice League Blu-ray makes absolutely no reference to a possible director’s cut, indicating that those vocal and impassioned Zack Snyder fans are campaigning for a lost cause.

Fans Launch New Site To Campaign For Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut

Justice League is currently set to go down as one of the greatest superheroic disappointments of all-time. The film was supposed to be the culmination of years of plotlines in Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman, properly launching the expansive and exciting DC Universe on the big screen in a spectacular manner. A famously tortured production, though, including director Zack Snyder leaving the project and being replaced by Joss Whedon, culminated in the mess that was finally squirted into cinemas late last year.

Could things have been different? A lot of Dceu fans think the answer is yes. We know for sure that some kind of cut was screened to Warner Bros. executives in the spring of 2017 and that they reacted so negatively that months of expensive reshoots to change the film’s tone were hurriedly scheduled. Since then, there’s been

Update: Lindsay Lohan wants to play Batgirl for Joss Whedon

After several years in the wilderness, Lindsay Lohan is gearing up to embark on a career comeback attempt, with the Mean Girls star set to appear in the upcoming werewolf film The Shadow Within and the British sitcom Sick Note, and it seems she’s now set her sights on another role.

Taking to Twitter, Lohan has expressed her interest in taking on the title role of Barbara Gordon in Warner Bros.’ planned Batgirl movie from director Joss Whedon, asking fans to retweet if they’d like to see her cast as the crime-fighter. Remarkably, there’s almost 2000 people who think this is a good idea…

Lindsay Lohan Continues To Tease Batgirl Role

There’s a good deal of uncertainty surrounding Batgirl at the moment, and a lot of that stems from the debacle that was Justice League. Due to the pic disappointing both critically and financially, the studio’s now lost faith in Joss Whedon, from what we hear, and are reconsidering letting him direct the aforementioned upcoming project. In fact, we’ve even heard that it might be cancelled outright.

Chalk that up as a rumor for now, but it’s clear that there’s some re-shuffling going on behind the scenes at Warner Bros. and unfortunately, Batgirl may be in trouble. Still, that hasn’t stopped various actresses from throwing their hat into the ring for the titular role and the latest to do so is Lindsay Lohan. No, we’re not kidding – but we wish we were.

Jumanji Swings Past Justice League at the Worldwide Box Office

Sony has found themselves a massive hit with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The movie spent its first couple of weekends trailing The Last Jedi, but it's won two straight weeks at the box office and has crossed a pretty surprising milestone. Jumanj has officially passed Justice League at the global box office. That's surprising for an array of reasons, but it, if anything, proves just how reliable The Rock has become in terms of delivering a hit.

With the Mlk weekend box office added in, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has brought in a grand total of $674.5 million worldwide. That's already a sizable amount more than Warner Bros.' Justice League, which made $654.4 million worldwide during its run. This both indicates how much of a surprise hit the Jumanji sequel has been and how much of a disappointment Justice League was. Especially considering how well Wonder Woman did financially and critically.
