Stoke the fire, pour the nog, and weaponize the Tesseract. It’s Christmas time and characters from the Marvel Universe have got the holly, jolly spirit. Especially Groot. He’s got the voice on an angel.

Robert Downey Jr. To Bring Iron Man To ‘Captain America 3′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/robert-downey-jr-to-bring-iron-man-to-captain-america-3/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/robert-downey-jr-to-bring-iron-man-to-captain-america-3/#comments Tue, 14 Oct 2014 15:39:41 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=266097 It doesn't sound all that different from an 'Avengers' movie.

Reports are coming in that Robert Downey Jr., who’s been pessimistically coy about an Iron Man 4 film, will take a big role in Captain America 3, which will serve as the precursor to the popular “civil war” storyline in the Marvel universe. In the plotline, the government requires all superhumans to register, which divides the country and the heroes into two camps: Iron Man camp and Captain America camp.

They fight for a while, though it’s a safe bet that this fight will last longer than just the one film.

Marvel also Tweeted this, hinting at a reboot of the comic storyline next year. It seems that all the pieces are coming in place for something big, even by gigantic Marvel standards.

Oh, yeah: Chris Evans will probably be in Captain America 3 as well, because what’s a Captain America film without Captain America?

With Marvel madness sweeping most every outlet of media and entertainment these days, Robert Downey Jr. went on Late Show with David Letterman to talk about The Judge, but as you would expect, things quickly turned towards his Iron Man character, and the actor’s future in the who Marvel universe.

RDJ said that he won’t be party to Iron Man 4, but that he would continue to be involved in the franchise, and that a big announcement is coming soon.

Uh, it’s Marvel. They make “big announcements” on a weekly basis. They make more announcements than they do films or comic books.

If they can avoid it, Marvel’s extended lineup of films will not include paying more obscene amounts of money to Robert Downey Jr..  The Iron Man star tells Variety that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man standalone film, though he is still contracted to make dickish remarks and shoot lasers in team-up films and post-credits scenes through 2018.

“There isn’t one in the pipe. No, there’s no plan for a fourth Iron Man,” says Downey.

When asked if he would “let” anyone else takeover the role, he laughed. “I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I’m casting director for Marvel,” he said.

Sad news but perhaps good news for all those waiting with bated breath for a Son of Iron Man film.

The Eight Coolest Post-Credits Scenes in Movies http://www.screenjunkies.com/general/the-eight-coolest-post-credits-scenes-in-movies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/general/the-eight-coolest-post-credits-scenes-in-movies/#comments Wed, 06 Aug 2014 12:13:53 +0000 DustinSeibert http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=263746 Marvel didn't start the trend of hidden post-credits scenes. Here are a few of our favorites.

The post The Eight Coolest Post-Credits Scenes in Movies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, with its now de rigueur post-credits “hidden” scenes, has kept legions of viewers’ asses plopped firmly in their Fanta-stained seats well after the final credits start rolling. The latest MCU post-credits scene, following the conclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy, is too good to ruin here, but I’ll say two spoiler-free things about it: It fit in perfectly with the tone of the movie itself, and it will likely go over the heads of most people under age 30.

For any teenaged readers who thought Marvel was the progenitor of this post-credit-scene business, think again — it’s been going on for decades. Early on, though, it was a rare and unexpected thing that most people found out about only after someone said, “Did you stay until the very end??” Because there was no YouTube, people either had to pay to see the film again in theaters or wait until it came out on VHS to see the scene.

Some of the best post-credits sequences tease sequels (some of which never happened), put a little cherry on top of the material you just saw, or feature an outtake or off-script riffing (which happen more commonly during end credits these days). Some of our favorite post-credits scenes on this list are simply ones that make me reminisce on my childhood.

Which reminds me: YouTube Powers That Be, how can you NOT have a video sequence of Raul Julia’s M. Bison sticking his hand out of the rubble after the credits of 1994′s Street Fighter?!?? That’s classic stuff!


Kill Bill (2003) – This quickie scene is an outtake of Uma Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo ripping an eyeball out of a member of the Crazy 88 army, clearly delighting in it. It should get fans excited for the rumored upcoming release of both Kill Bill films combined.


Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) – This 45-second sequence is just as irreverent as the movie that preceded it; while it worked back then, it now serves as a reminder that the Ron Burgundy schtick is kinda played out after a decade. Raise your hand if you actually *loved* Anchorman 2. Thought so.


The Fast and the Furious (2001) – This scene shows Vin Diesel’s Dominic driving through Baja, having successfully escaped the cops in the states. It set the pace for a franchise continuity that’s 13 years and running. Fast and Furious films are awesome. More please.


Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) – Because this is footage of an actual building being demolished, I am pretty sure the filmmakers didn’t pay for it considering it’s a scene that few people would see, because people didn’t stay past the credits in 1992. My guess is the building was being blown to bits anyway, so they filmed it and had Mel Gibson and Danny Glover dubbed talking in character over the video. Pretty lazy, if you ask me.


Iron Man (2008) – Since the original Iron Man was the first movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and arguably still the best), its post-credits scene introducing Samuel L. Jackson as (black!) Nick Fury is still the most memorable, as it left nerdboys salivating for what MCU had to offer. With few exceptions, it hasn’t let us down.


Crank (2006) – Made when people were still funding Jason Statham-led films, Crank wasn’t very memorable in general. But its post-credits sequence — a 16-second recap of the film reimagined as a 16(ish)-bit video game — is cool mainly because it’s so unique.


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) – An awesome film from the roota to the toota that aged remarkably well, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off kept viewers watching throughout the end credits roll, only for Ferris to tell everyone to shove off. If there’s an earlier post-credits scene that matters, I know nothing about it.


Masters of the Universe (1987) - Every little snot-nosed ’80s kid loved He-Man, and the live-action movie was extra-awesome. For little boys, that is. Everyone else hated it, which means Skeletor was never able to make good on his Ahnuld-esque “I’ll be back” post-credits promise.

Now’s a pretty good time to get familiar with the Marvel universe. I mean, five years ago would have been a better time — before the deluge of Marvel films at the box office — but considering that Marvel and Disney have pretty much earmarked every single weekend in the future for some sort of Marvel film, you might as well bone up on the world they’ve created.

This video makes it easy to follow every little inside joke in the universe. It’s not exactly Marvel 101, but if you’ve seen some of the films, this could offer a little depth in what may have otherwise just seemed like big summer fare.

Educate yourself and enjoy.

With Guardians of the Galaxy breaking box office numbers as I type this and The Avengers: Age of Ultron set to dominate next summer, Marvel has decided to take a moment to breathe, step back, and have a good look at how they got to a film about a machine-gunnin’ raccoon. Posted to their official YouTube page, this recap covers the major events of Phase One and Phase Two (so far) and it cuts together so well.

Marvel made history by creating so many intricate connections between their diverse array of films as that’s pointed out here. The video covers everything from Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy (and even includes footage from Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk because we can’t ignore that those happened) ending on a shot of formerly-teased villain Thanos resting upon his floating throne of rock. Excelsior!

Guardians of the Galaxy marketed itself as a different type of superhero film. It was character driven, as audiences weren’t familiar enough with the source material to fall back on the familiar faces and plots. It was goofy and funny, but not at the expense of action. The film was initially far riskier than Iron Man, The Avengers, or any of the old guard.

But rather than alienating the die-hard fans, Guardians appealed to…well, everyone. It pulled in $94 million its opening weekend, which is just $1 shy of Captain America‘s take earlier this year. It also will likely lend itself better to repeat viewings, so it could prove a little more durable in later weeks.

Good thing they’ve already announced the sequel. America apparently can’t get enough of little raccoons and anthropomorphic trees.

The post The Military Is Developing An ‘Iron Man’ Suit, And Hollywood Is Helping appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
It’s commonly held among both nerds and non-nerds that the Iron Man suit, featured in the movies of the same name, and The Avengers, is one of the coolest movie toys out there. So it was only a matter of time before the U.S. military, arguably the best-funded organization on Earth, demanded one like a petulant child.

To make the dream come true, the military isn’t just working with its normal contractors like Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics (is there a more sinister name in the world than “General Dynamics?”), but also with Legacy Effects, who designed the suit for the films.

The Wall Street Journal is claiming that the suit will have “a weapon, provide bullet protection, monitor vitals, and give its wearer superhuman strength and perception.” The perfect outfit to kill a lot of people in.

No word on when the suit will be ready, but it sounds like Summer 2017 is a good slot.

7 Best Superhero Suits From Film and Television http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-best-movie-superhero-suits/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-best-movie-superhero-suits/#comments Fri, 20 Sep 2013 18:27:33 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=257105 Dress for success...

The post 7 Best Superhero Suits From Film and Television appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Contrary to many other types of filmmaking, and art in general, in superhero films, appearances matter. A lot. If you’re basing a movie around a person enabled by a magic suit, then you will want to take pains to make the suit as awesome as you can. Failing that, making it as hilarious as possible can also go a long way (see below).

But anything in the middle gets lost in the near-constant barrage of superhero and comic book movies. However, here are seven suits that get it right, and in doing so, make their films that much better.

7. Robocop

The original is still the best.

While Robocop 3 saw him flying around like some sort of metallic savant, the original Robocop suit did a fine job of balancing the characteristics of Murphy, the cop, and Robocop, the, uh, robotic cop.

The bluish sheen, awesome visor, and the fact that it could stop bullets didn’t really hurt much either.

6. The Suits of Kick-Ass

While it may seem a cop-out to put all of a film’s suits in one entry, the praise here goes more to the idea, followed by the execution, and the idea runs to every costume. Kick-Ass follows some regular, non-superpowered kids who decide to step up to their calling.

They can’t fly, they don’t own polymer factories like Bruce Wayne, and they don’t have legions of 3-D printers to forge their outfits, so they do the best they can with what they have, which isn’t much. Initially, they look a little ridiculous, but the concept of a hero having to put on a special outfit is pretty ridiculous, too. So it all checks out.

5. He-Man

Not the Dolph Lundgren film He-Man from Masters of the Universe, but the cartoon He-Man from He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword. This one goes to the homoerotic “Ohmygodguysweshouldallgoclubbing” OUTFIT donned by Adam. It is comprised of some fur-trimmed briefs, two leather cross-body suspenders, some very handsome cuffs, and boots.

If only business suits were such.

From a practical perspective, the suit is a nightmare. It only protects his wrists and feet! From a costume design perspective, this ensemble hovers near perfection. Top it off with a four-dollar Dutch boy haircut, and you’ll be able to stop any of Skeletor’s henchmen to stop.

Stop in the name of LOVE.

4. Captain America

Often, the best thing an adaptation can do is steer away from the original. Captain America (the film) managed to do that by taking away the squeaky-clean red, white, and blue while still keeping it thematically correct and just a tad more realistic and gritty.

While “grit” has rarely been what the classic comics are about, the idealized notions of a superhero don’t fly with today’s audiences. They could use a little humanity. And what’s more human than dirty clothes?

3. The Rocketeer

From an era similar to Captain America, the Rocketeer took on a very American bent as well, but this time utilizing art deco to a high degree. The look manages to be highly stylized, but still believable and realistic. With just a hint of steampunk, bless its soul.

The suit in this instance pretty much just consists of a jetpack, a bitchin’ leather jacket, and a really cool, streamlined helmet. It’s more real than fantastic, and that realism lends a little credibility to the notion that a regular dude can fly through the air with a backpack.

2. Batman (The TV Show) Outfit

Since the subsequent film adaptations from 1989 onward, it seems that the many Batsuits have existed more to blind audiences with technology, angles, and fanfare than simply serve as a costume that a person could attain.

So it’s with some ironic enjoyment and some sincere praise that we salute the suit from 1966′s Batman. We love the gray, the super-dark navy, and a utility belt that appears to be fashioned for a middle school play. When you look at the role of Bruce Wayne, and think of Christian Bale’s dark portrayal, it’s fun to think of a morose billionaire slipping into something you could pick up at K-Mart for $30 and balancing the scales of justice.

It may not be the costume we need,….etc.

1. Iron Man

Along with Tony Stark’s huge glib personality, the suit is the star of the Iron Man show, so they had a lot to live up to in getting it right. And they did. While it’s certainly easier in this age of CGI to have a suit, costume, or backpack do just about anything, there’s no shortcut in determining the style.

So when it was time to put their best foot forward with the Iron Man suit, the producers had to walk a fine line between the fantastic and the real (as they have in all the best costumes). The color scheme, shape, and fact that the suit is a vehicle all get seamlessly integrated, resulting in the best superhero suit out there today.

Iron Man’s lucky that this list is confined to HEROES, though. Otherwise, the Predator suit would have taken #1 in a walk.

The moment the lights dim you can tell Iron Man 3 is nothing like its predecessors. Does it have a great superhero story? Yes. Does it build the Marvel universe? Yes. Is it a summer movie in all the ways a summer movie should be? Hell yes. What makes it different then? It’s the first Marvel movie made specifically for adults.

Now I don’t mean to say that Marvel has not had adult elements in all of its recent movies. But never before has a Marvel movie seemed so tailor-made for adults. What Shane Black has done with the character of Tony Stark is to not only make him more human but to also make him somehow more Tony Stark-esque, giving fans the Iron Man they deserve.

Iron Man 3 is loaded with everything that makes a summer movie great. Excellent action sequences you wish wouldn’t end. Genuinely funny moments. And a story that builds upon everything that Marvel has set in motion thus far. But most importantly, this movie sets a new tone for how adult a superhero movie can be without taking the Nolan route, something no one has achieved until now. If Iron Man 3 is any indication of what Marvel has in store for us post Avengers, then their movies can’t get here soon enough.

The post 9 Awesome Places To Find More Superheroes appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Over the years, we’ve seen many versions of our favorite superheroes on television screens. From Superman’s black-and-white serials to Spider-Man’s mid-1970′s adventures, we’ve watched our favorite heroes change and adapt to the times. However, it’s time to prepare to see them as we never have before. Marvel Anime: X-Men and Marvel Anime: Iron Man are back on G4 with all new adventures and available on DVD April 24th. Presented in an awesome artistic anime style, the Warren Ellis-scripted reimagings of the classic Marvel heroes are huge hits in Japan and a must-see for fans of the Marvel universe.

In honor of this release, let’s have a look at some of our favorites throughout the years.

Iron Man 1966

Before becoming the cultural phenomenon he is today, Iron Man made the leap from comic to cartoon. The 1966 animated series followed the exploits of genius inventor and billionaire playboy Tony Stark, as he balanced the rigors of world-saving and just chilling out and having a good time. Plus, listen to that intro song. I know that he’s sampled it in the past, but Ghostface Killah needs to work it into more tracks. It’s just precious.

Thor

Thor was always a bridesmaid and never a bride before last summer’s blockbuster version. Relegated to supporting roles, the Son of Odin appeared in the television movie The Incredible Hulk Returns. This was meant to serve as a pilot for Thor‘s own television series but the plans did not come to fruition.

Spider-Man

The Spider-Man we know and love experienced a minor overhaul in Japan. In this late 70′s series, a young motorcycle racer who accepts a blood transfusion from an alien from Planet Spider. This blood co mingles with his, granting him the awesome powers of Spider-Man. And just because this takes place in Japan, he of course pilots the giant robot Leopardon, which he uses to fight over sized monsters.

Also, a samurai cuts a house cat in half in spectacular fashion.

The remake news is flooding in so fast that our interns just took their own lives. Today’s big story (so far) is that Robert Downey Jr. and Warner Bros have teamed up to co-produce a feature adaptation of the famed TV show Perry Mason that ran from 1957-1966 starring Raymond Burr. Of course, there was a radio series and film franchise in the 1930′s as well, but people who watched that are too old for the internet, so we needn’t harp on it.

The films will be set in the world of 1930′s Los Angeles, where Perry Mason will have his hands full representing those rightfully and wrongfully accused of crimes. While I’m not thrilled of the idea of yet another remake, this thing is far away enough from my consciousness that it might as well be new to me. It sounds a bit like L.A. Confidential, so I’m gonna go ahead and take off my “cynical” hat and put on my “Yay because this sort of sounds like L.A. Confidential” hat. It’s a very specific hat that I don’t get to break out as often as I’d like.

You may have seen a couple of trailers a while back for anime versions of the popular Marvel superheroe Iron Man and Wolverine. If you’re the right kind of person, you might have wondered who would get to voice the English dubs of these characters. Well, wonder no more, hypothetical person, because we now know that Iron Man will be voiced by Adrian Pasdar, while Wolverine’s “bubs” will be provided by Milo Ventimiglia (who also has Static coming up). Somewhat interestingly, both of these actors were on the show “Heroes” on NBC – not only that, they playe brothers.

Here’s Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, on the casting:

“Adrian and Milo are perfect as Iron Man and Wolverine. It’s extremely exciting to see these talented guys take on two of the most iconic Super Hero roles of all time.”

Both movies, about the Japan-set adventures of the super-heroes, are set to premiere on G4. And there are Blade and X-Men anime movies in the works as well. So people who like seeing super-heroes with huge eyes definitely have something to be excited about. (via ScreenRant)

Dominic Cooper Cast as Howard Stark in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dominic-cooper-cast-as-howard-stark-in-captain-america-the-first-avenger/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dominic-cooper-cast-as-howard-stark-in-captain-america-the-first-avenger/#comments Wed, 30 Jun 2010 11:25:04 +0000 Reza F. It's official: Dominic Cooper will play Howard Stark in the upcoming 'Captain America' film. Although rumors have been circulating about Cooper's involvement since May, Marvel did not send the official press release until yesterday. It's kind of like how you know your girlfriend is going to leave you for that guy at the gym, but she hasn't yet packed up her stuff.As I wrote in May, Howard Stark is a Howard Hughes-esq inventor and the founder of Stark Industries, the company later inherited by his son Tony (a.k.a. Iron Man). Assuming no one has changed the Wikipedia page from which I grabbed it, that information should still be accurate. (Collider)

Dominic Cooper to Play Iron Man’s Dad in ‘Captain America’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dominic-cooper-to-play-iron-mans-dad-in-captain-america/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dominic-cooper-to-play-iron-mans-dad-in-captain-america/#comments Tue, 25 May 2010 09:57:00 +0000 Reza F. First Showing is reporting that Dominic Cooper has has been brought on to play Howard Stark, the father of Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) in the upcoming film, Captain America: The First Avenger. Cooper will play a much younger version of the character than was briefly seen in Iron Man 1 and 2.According to my vast knowledge base of comic related information (a.k.a. wikipedia), Howard Stark is a millionaire inventor and the founder of Stark Industries, a weapons company that came to prominence during World War II. Like his son Tony, Howard is a brilliant but flawed character who battles with alcoholism.The character of Howard Stark is supposedly based on eccentric aviation pioneer Howard Hughes. I'm assuming that Cooper has already begun hording jars of his own precious urine in order to get into character.

‘Iron Man 3′ Villain: The Mandarin http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/iron-man-3-villain-the-mandarin/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/iron-man-3-villain-the-mandarin/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Iron Man 2 has been in theaters for less than a week, but that didn't stop director Jon Favreau from speculating on the villain for Iron Man 3. And if Favreau has his way, Tony Stark will be taking on The Mandarin in the next installment of the popular franchise. "You've got to do The Mandarin", says the director, who has been teasing this in the films already with tiny references to the Ten Ring organization, "but the problem is, the way he's depicted in the comic books... you don't want to see that." The "problem" Favreau is referring to is the fact that the character, an evil descendant of Genghis Khan, has been criticized for being nothing more than a negative Asian stereotype. However, I have no doubt that Hollywood can work around this problem, changing the The Mandarin to a white Anglo-Saxon Protestant businessman hellbent on oppressing minorities and destroying the environment, while still maintaining the essence of the character. However, since Tony Stark is set to appear in the upcoming Avengers film, work on Iron Man 3 will have to wait until at least 2012. And if my sources inside the government are correct, by that time Hollywood will have already been destroyed in a limited nuclear exchange with the Chinese, making concern about The Mandarin a moot point. (Empire)

‘Iron Man 2′ Can’t Beat Batman’s Box Office http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/iron-man-2-cant-beat-batmans-box-office/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/iron-man-2-cant-beat-batmans-box-office/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Iron Man 2 opened in first place on Friday night, earning an estimated $52 million, easily surpassing Alice in Wonderland with the biggest debut of 2010. But when it comes to superhero movies, Batman still reigns supreme at the box office.While weekend projections for IM2 are an impressive $135 million, it's a far cry from the $158.4 million brought in by The Dark Knight, which holds the all-time first weekend record.I guess this shouldn't come as a surprise. Batman could clearly beat Iron Man in a fight. Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne are both geniuses and millionaire playboys, but Bruce Wayne is motivated by an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. And as we all know, vengeance is a powerful motivator. Just ask my old high-school nemesis, Joseph Sinclair. I showed him...him and that wife of his. (Collider)
