EXCLUSIVE: Find Out Who Benicio Del Toro Is Playing In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
While most fans are speculating that 'Wolfman' actor Benicio Del Toro is playing the mad titan Thanos in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, a reliable source has confirmed that he'll actually be playing The Collector.

Breathtaking New Online Trailer Released For Zack Snyder's MAN OF STEEL
This final online trailer for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel was released this week and boy did it bring the action. However, if you're already sold on the film, do your best to avoid watching it (if you haven't done so already). There's a bunch more clips and tv spots floating out there as well but with only a week away, all the additional footage might be overkill.

Nicholas Hoult Goes Beast Mode On Michael Fassbender Filming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
New photos have surfaced from the Montreal set of X-Men: Days of Future Past featuring Nicholas Hoult dressed as the Beast filming a fight scene against Michael Fassbender's Magneto. What sets these set photos apart from others is the fact that they hint at a possible change to Beast's condition that if true, will cause quite the uproar.

Marvel Eyeing KICK-ASS Star Aaron Johnson For 'Quicksilver' Role In THE AVENGERS 2
While Fox moves forward with Evan Peters playing Quicksilver in the forthcoming X-Men movie, Peters' Kick-Ass co-star Aaron Johnson is reportedly being eyed for the role in Marvel's The Avengers sequel. The same report says Johnson is a long-shot due to scheduling issues so make of that what you will.

Definitive Answers On JUSTICE LEAGUE From Zack Snyder
"Do the DC characters exist in the universe I created? The answer is yes," says Man of Steel director Zack Snyder on the subject of a Justice League film. He goes on state, "Now, that being said, does a ‘Justice League’ movie exist now? No." Cutting through the fat, the box office returns on Man of Steel will determine WB's course moving forward.

I only wish we could stop arguing over Marvel or DC on MOS articles.
JoeMomma29 - 6/8/2013, 7:28 AM
@ TheWolverine08

Sorry the DC/WB flame wars are like the North and South or the Hatfields and McCoys. It is not going to die out anytime soon...
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:33 AM
It's true, the flame wars will not stop.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:34 AM
@KryptonianAbominationClone
Yep.
That about sums it up.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:35 AM
That IS this site.
Or some asshole negatively commenting on somebody else's non negative comments for no reason...
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:36 AM
Yes, because Marvel and Dc have all this time to spend trying to hijack each others movies...
B.T.W. whats up @Cipher
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:38 AM

That place is just crazy!
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:38 AM
"it's"
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:44 AM
YES!
@FIRG...
at least that's what "THEY" would have us believe.
Who "THEY" are, im not sure. But im sure it's true
Wait...im confused
TheWolverine08 - 6/8/2013, 7:45 AM
@KryptonianAbominationClone Yup you pretty much summed it up. These guys argue about companies and just sound so childish. And they try to prove their company is "better" evn though it is all subjective.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 7:57 AM
"Moles"..."Trolls"....Hmmm
beane2099 - 6/8/2013, 8:38 AM
So wait... is Del Toro rumored to be playing the Collector or the Controller? Cause the original article said Collector but this one says Controller. Personally I think he's playing the head of the dead celestial that the Guardians use as their base. It's just is head and every so often you see his eyes bulge out and move around like something out of power rangers.
DestroyallTrolls - 6/8/2013, 9:32 AM
hmmm...so OBVIOUSLY this means WB and DC are behind this...Bastards!
Cause you know, 1 + 1 = 67.
MightyZeus - 6/8/2013, 10:54 AM
Not really a fan of Aaron Johnson but i dont mind that Quicksilver is going to be in Avengers 2.

As for Man of Steel tv spots and a new trailer being released that's great but i'm avoiding them as i want to reserve my hype while watching the film and i dont want to be spoiled.
EpitomeofAwesome - 6/8/2013, 11:49 AM
DC's good, Marvel's great. Get the f*ck over it.
EdgyOutsider - 6/8/2013, 11:56 AM
I'm not a fan of Beast's look in Days of Future Past but for the evolution of the character going from First Class to his appearance in The Last Stand, it makes sense he would go from looking like a complete animal, a beast into something that's a little bit more human. I still prefer the First Class more animalistic looking beast over Days of Future Past wolfman beast.
