Marvel announces movies through 2019

Yesterday (July 18th) Marvel announced that they already have release dates for movies running through 2019 which is more than likely the end of their Phase 3 with Avengers 3 to release May 3rd, 2019. As it stands these are the official confirmed release dates for movies and the titles attached to them if they have previously been announced.
  • May 1, 2015 – The Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • July 17, 2015 – Ant-Man
  • May 6, 2016 – Captain America 3 (Untitled)
  • July 8, 2016 – Doctor Strange (Unannounced)
  • May 5, 2017 – Unannounced
  • July 28, 2017 - Unannounced
  • November 3, 2017 - Unannounced
  • July 6, 2018 - Unannounced
  • November 2, 2018 - Unannounced
  • May 3, 2019 – The Avengers 3 (Unannounced)
 My guess to how the unannounced the movies may go, is like this;
  • July 8, 2016 – Doctor Strange
  • May 5, 2017 – Thor 3
  • July 28, 2017 - Black Panther
  • November 3, 2017 - Hulk solo (Planet Hulk would be cool)
  • July 6, 2018 - A solo female movie (possibly Black Widow)
  • November 2, 2018 -Avengers/Guardians cross
  • May 3, 2019 – The Avengers 3
This list is of course just personal speculation, there is no evidence to support anything I have said I just wanted to throw my guess out there. It is safe to say that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is shaping up VERY nicely and set to get even better over the coming years.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" behind the scenes

After the Kid's Choice Sports Awards the other night, Paramount Pictures decided to give us fans a huge behind the scenes feature for their upcoming movie "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". The feature came in at a staggering 17 minutes, check it out below you will NOT be disappointed.

SPOILERS!!!! Only click play on the video if you're willing to watch scenes from the movie, if not don't click. SPOILERS!!!!!

Bruce Willis vs Jason Patric in "The Prince" trailer

This is genuinely the first I am hearing about this movie, and to be honest I am disappointed in myself I'm usually a huge follower of Bruce Willis' work. This just seems to have slipped by me, the movie seems to be a mix of Action/Crime/Thriller with a story we've seen before. However, that is not to say we don't enjoy a nice revenge movie.

"A retired assassin (Patric) is drawn back into the life he gave up when his daughter (Lowndes) is kidnapped. To rescue her, he must confront his former rival (Willis)." IMDB

"Uncharted" director expects 2015 filming

Sony have been talking about a potential Uncharted movie for a few years now, and over the time is has had a couple of directors signed on to do it but ultimately stepped away from the project David O Russell and Neil Burger. Now they have a new director at the helm Seth Gorgon the man behind "Horrible Bosses" and "Identity Thief" not the strongest foundations to build my hope for this Video Game adaptation I must say.

In a recent interview with Zap2it, Gordon explained that he doesn't expect the movie to start shooting until "very early" in 2015.

Who would you like to see play the globe trotting adventurer Nathan Drake? My personal choice since I played the game when it first released was Nathan Fillion, and I find it even hard to speculate about another dude playing Drake.

Jack Black talks "Goosebumps" and first official pictures

Entertainment  Weekly have recently released the first official pictures from the upcoming Goosebumps adaptation which will star Jack Black, along with the pictures Jack had a few words to say about the upcoming movie.

"I play R.L. Stine, who’s not in any of the books, but he’s an essential character in this movie," Black tells the outlet. "Which is all about when all of his characters come to life. It was kind of a great way to bring out all of the scary beasts and monsters from all of his books in one movie."

He also spoke about age-appropriate scares from the books and adapting them to the big screen.

"Kids like scary movies, but you can’t take them to what are the big scary movies now where Satan comes out and bites your genitals off. Those movies can actually leave you mentally scared; that’s not for kids. But kids still like to get a little thrill and a little danger, so you need projects like this."

5 actresses who could take over as Thor

You may or may not have heard, but Marvel have took the shocking approach of replacing Thor in comics with a now female version. I know it is far to early to even speculate on a female Thor replacing Chris Hemsworths Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it may be early, that's not to say that it would not be fun as heck to speculate.

Marvel Editor-In-Chief Alex Alonso did say in the interview regarding the change of gender "This really is the one Thor for an extended period of time for which we have no real exit plan" with Time. So it is easily within the realm of possibility that Chris could be replaced in the future, rumour has it he has three movies left on his contract one being "Avenger: Age Of Ultron" and obviously "Thor 3" could his third remaining movie be the end of Hemsworths Thor? As we said it's in the realm of possibilities. Here are five actresses I think could take over live action Thor if the opportunity arose for them, the order they are down in are not in a best to worst or anything. They're just the five I chose.

Jamie Alexander - Alex Alonso "one of the women in Thor's life picks up the hammer. She is in fact worthy. and she becomes Thor" So the first person that should come to mind is Sif, played by the incredibly beautiful and talented Jamie Alexander. People may argue Jane Foster played by Natalie Portman may be suitable, but for me neither Norse looking nor does she have the height.

Ronda Rousey - Ronda may not be know to you, and to be honest I had never heard of her until she was cast in "The Expendables 3". She is a 27 year old UFC fighter who according to fans I have spoken to could hold her own against most men in her division. While Thor isn't know for his hand-to-hand combat he most certainly does encounter some none Moljnir related fights as will his female counterpart. We will just have to see over the coming years how her acting holds up against her ass kicking skills.

Gina Carano - Gina also has the same sort of credentials that Rousey comes with, expect for the fact we have seen Carano act on a few occasions. I really enjoyed her in "Fast & Furious 6" and "Haywire" she isn't the best of actresses, however she is enjoyable to watch. So given her little bit more experience with the acting world she may be a slightly better choice than her fellow UFC fighter.

Kate Beckinsale - The extremely talented Mrs Beckinsale known by us all for undeniable beauty and her role in the Blockbuster franchise Underworld. She sure has heck has the acting ability and she can certainly hold a film if female Thor was to go solo, just look at Selene in Underworld.
Katee Sackhoff - Who doesn't want Sackhoff to take over a lead Action star? I know I do, for years there has been talk of her taking the lead in an Action movie. In more recent years she is being touted for the lead in "The Expendables" female spin-off "Expendabelles". So she already has the hype in this Action world, she can command the attention of the audience when she is on screen like a Norse God would.

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" first official pictures

Not long after Entertainment Weekly debuted their "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" front cover, they now have the first official pictures form the upcoming instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first picture I absolutely adore, just look at it Mjolnir just chilling on the table.
Cap: "Let's invite Thor around for drinks and food."
Thor turns up and puts one of the most powerful weapons in their universe on the coffee table!!! Haha!
