Has the biggest "Guardians of the Galaxy" mystery just been solved? Not if you ask the film's director.
Responding to a recent rumor about "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," director James Gunn went on his official Facebook page, saying, "The rumors surrounding Quill's parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren't even close to the truth."
After the blockbuster film was released in 2014, Marvel fans were left to speculate on the identity of Peter Quill's father. more >>
Marvel Studios has announced that one of the movies which is part of its Phase 3 line up of films, "Doctor Strange," has started production. In a post in Marvel.com, it also confirmed the final cast line up for the film, adding Mads Mikkelsen of "Hannibal" to the cast which already includes Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game"), Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave"), Rachel McAdams ("Southpaw"), Michael Stuhlbarg ("Steve Jobs") and Tilda Swinton ("The Grand Budapest Hotel").
According to Marvel, the film fits perfectly with the goal of the Marvel's Phase 3 because it aims to introduce heroes who many are not so familiar with. The character, Doctor Strange, is mainly known by avid readers of Marvel comics. This film will be the character's initiation into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which already includes the better known superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, among others.
"Doctor Strange" is described as a story about a successful but arrogant neurosurgeon, Doctor Stephen Strange, who loses his extraordinary medical abilities when he figures in a car accident. In his desperate search for a cure to his condition, he ends up in the Himalayas where he meets the Ancient One. According to the Marvel comic storyline, he becomes the Ancient One's student in the mystic arts. When he returns to New York after his training, he practices the mystical arts in order to protect humanity from magical and mystical threats. more >>
One of the reasons Chris Hemsworth has gained fame in recent years is his portrayal of the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero/Norse god "Thor," a part that often and perfectly showcases his good looks and muscle-bound physique. But in Hemsworth's latest Instagram snap, the actor resembles Tom Hanks in "Cast Away" more than himself in any of his recent films.
On Sunday, the former "Sexiest Man Alive" shocked fans when he posted a photo of himself looking half-starved and decidedly gaunt. "Just tried a new diet/training program called 'Lost At Sea.' Wouldn't recommend it..," he captioned the photo.
The "Avengers" actor reportedly slimmed down to a nearly-skeletal physique for his new film "In the Heart of the Sea." According to E! Online, Hemsworth told Jimmy Kimmel that the cast had to "get rather skinny" and were on a gruelling diet of "about 500 or 600 calories a day." To stay healthy, a man of the actor's size would have to consume between 2,000 and 3,000 calories a day. more >>
While there is still no official word from the Walt Disney Animation Studios on any details of the "Frozen" sequel, speculations about the film have been popping up left and right since it was announced in March of this year.
With so much excitement over "Frozen 2" and so much pressure on the production staff to make a film that will top - or at least be as good as - the commercially successful and critically acclaimed "Frozen," it's no wonder that Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that the company will not fast-track the film. In January, Iger said: "We're not demanding speed. We're demanding excellence."
Meanwhile, directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, the duo who brought the beloved blockbuster hit "Frozen" to life, are returning to direct the sequel. And while Buck told MTV News that the directors had just got back together and started brainstorming, he did say that they had a very strong overall concept in place. more >>
Meagan Good has been booked with consistent acting jobs for the past four years, but she insists that God fulfills her way more than her career.
"I pray and read my Bible every single day, I stay close to God because He's what matters the most; everything else is secondary," Good said in a Los Angeles Sentinel report. "My career can never give me what God can give me."
The 34-year-old actress currently stars in the FOX television show "Minority Report" but had to get used to the idea of consistently working on the small screen after building her career upon movie roles. In 2013, Good starred in the ABC series "Deception," which she was initially apprehensive about. more >>
Just when it seemed the highly anticipated "God's Not Dead 2" cast couldn't get any bigger, GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee revealed that he has a cameo appearance in the star-studded film.
"It was a real honor and thrill to film a scene for the movie," Huckabee told The Christian Post. "A few years ago, such a plot would seem like fiction, but in light of how Christianity is being criminalized in America, this film depicts life in America for those of faith."
Although Huckabee is on the campaign trail seeking the Republican nomination for president, Pure Flix Entertainment announced this week that the former Arkansas governor is going to be on the big screen in "God's Not Dead 2," which is set to release on April 1, 2016. more >>
