Mark Ruffalo's Hope For The Hulk Moving Forward


During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Mark Ruffalo confirmed that there is "probably more" of his Hulk coming in the MCU. With Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at his side, the actor was clearly reluctant to get into specifics, but he did shed some light on what he'd like to do next.

"I'd like to see him hang out with some of the new folks, you know?" Ruffalo said. "Maybe be like a guru to some of the younger ones." In other words, the Green Goliath - who was badly injured in Avengers: Endgame - would become a mentor to the next generation of Avengers, something Feige actually called a "good idea" in response to the actor's comments. 

More Responses To Martin Scorsese's Anti-Marvel Comments

In the video above, Kevin Feige and Victoria Alonso, Executive Vice President of Production at Marvel Studios, were asked about Martin Scorsese's recent comments about Marvel movies. 

"I think that, listen, there’s a great amount of respect that we have for him as a filmmaker," Alsonso responded. "We work really hard to make movies for everyone, and we will work even harder. Maybe someday he’ll like what we do." When Feige was asked for his take, he replied: "Well said."

Ruffalo was also asked for his thoughts and you can hear them in the player above. 

How Chris Evans Spoiled Avengers: Endgame For Anthony Mackie

"While we were filming in Atlanta, I had a few people over to watch football or something, and Mackie was the first one to show up," Chris Evans says in the video above. "I didn’t know he didn’t know what was going to happen. I say, ‘Hey, man, isn’t that scene fantastic?’ and he said, ‘What scene?’ And I said, ‘The scene where I give you the shield!’ And he said, ‘You’re giving me the shield?"

"And I said ‘Oh no,'" he continued, explaining how he spoiled Avengers: Endgame for Anthony Mackie.
"So I ran to my room and I got the scene and gave it to him, and I got to watch him read the scene for the first time where he’s getting the shield," Evans continued. "And he was so happy and you immediately feel like, ‘Man, maybe I robbed this moment, maybe [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige deserved this.’ But it was so nice to share it with him. He was so happy and so deserving. It was a nice way to have — just between us — the transition of characters."

Hailee Steinfeld Casts Doubt On Her Hawkeye Future


Well, this is a little concerning. We've already heard that Hailee Steinfeld's commitments to Apple TV could cause her to lose out on the role of Kate Bishop in Hawkeye, and during a recent interview with Radio Times, the actress made it clear that nothing is confirmed as of right now. 

"That’s not something that’s necessarily happening," she revealed, before adding: "We’re going to wait and find out, I guess. So whatever opportunity might present itself in this space, I do think I will be able to tackle it, now that I’ve had some experience under my belt."

Now B-Movie Legend Roger Corman Is Taking Aim At The MCU!


Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese has been taking aim at Marvel movies, and now B-Movie filmmaker Roger Corman - who once helmed an unreleased Fantastic Four movie - has decided to weigh in as well. Asked by The Hollywood Reporter for his thoughts on the genre, it turns out he agrees with Scorsese!

"I’ve read what they said, and I think I agree with them to a certain extent," he revealed. "As pure cinema, as a pure art form, these films don’t qualify. But, if you say it is a combination of an art form and a business, then they do qualify." After praising the special effects in Marvel movies, he decided to conclude his comments by calling the production "standard" and the stories "simplistic."

Martin Scorsese Shares An Op-Ed Detailed His Marvel Movie Thoughts


Talking of Scorsese, he's now penned an entire Op-Ed for New York Times going into more detail about why he just doesn't like Marvel movies. However, the filmmaker has also backtracked to at least some extent, but it feels like it might be time for him to give it a rest at this point! 

"Many of the elements that define cinema as I know it are there in Marvel pictures," Scorsese writes. "What’s not there is revelation, mystery or genuine emotional danger. Nothing is at risk. The pictures are made to satisfy a specific set of demands, and they are designed as variations on a finite number of themes."
"It’s a perilous time in film exhibition, and there are fewer independent theaters than ever," he continued. "The equation has flipped and streaming has become the primary delivery system. Still, I don’t know a single filmmaker who doesn’t want to design films for the big screen, to be projected before audiences in theaters."
His opinion on the matter clearly isn't going to change, but the MCU also isn't going anywhere! 

Spider-Man: Far From Home's Theatrical Run Ends


Over the weekend, Spider-Man: Far From Home concluded its theatrical run. With $1.131 billion at the worldwide box office, the Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures sequel managed to earn $390 million in North America and an impressive $741 million at the international box office. 

The Numbers revealed those figures and it's easy to see why that partnership is continuing! 

Two Marvel Studios Productions Begin Filming This Week


Entertainment Tonight recently caught up with Kevin Feige, and he confirmed that two Marvel Studios productions begin shooting this week. One of them is presumably The Falcon and The Winter Soldier but what could the other be? "We’ve announced a lot of it. We’re into it as we speak. One’s in post, one’s shooting, two others start next week. It’s going to be an amazing future."

Black Widow is in post-production, Eternals is currently shooting, and WandaVision is more than likely the other project that's now filming as that's also coming to Disney+ in the near future. 

Some Fantastic Fan-Art

With Jack Ryan back on Amazon Prime, there's once again a lot of talk about the possibility of John Krasinski taking on the role of Mister Fantastic in Marvel Studios' Fantastic Four reboot. 

This awesome piece of fan-art shows him and real-life wife Emily Blunt as Sue Storm, and bear in mind that Krasinski has previously expressed interest in the role after missing out on playing Captain America all those years ago. "Oh yeah, the Fantastic Four. I would love that!" he said earlier this year. "I’m a huge superhero fan so yeah, I’d love to do something like that."

Taron Egerton Once Again Addresses Wolverine Speculation


"It's unfounded," the Kingsman star confirmed when asked about the endless speculation that he'll be the MCU's Wolverine. "The only morsel of truth to it is that I'm a huge fan of the films, like 99.9 percent of the rest of the world. That's kind of it, really. I don't quite know where it comes from. I'm flattered but baffled by it. There's other characters that I think I'd be more suited to."

Yahoo Movies is the latest outlet to ask Egerton about the possibility that he'll follow in the footsteps of Hugh Jackman by playing Wolverine, but, once again, he really doesn't sound overly keen!

Some Cool Thor: The Dark World Concept Art

Thor: The Dark World is still widely considered a disappointment by fans, but it does have some cool moments, including an opening which saw the God of Thunder battling Marauders on Vanaheim.

Now, concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has revealed some alternate takes on them and it's fair to say that these versions are considerably better than what ended up on the big screen in 2013.
