Marvel movies and TV shows are taking over the universe, with lots of photos and videos from film shoots, a new trailer for Jessica Jones, casting news, and interviews.
Filming has begun on Marvel’s Doctor Strange in Nepal this week. The first set photos and a video show bearded Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange.
There is also footage of scenes being filmed featuring Cumberbatch.
Michael Stuhlbarg (‘Boardwalk Empire’) is in talks for an unspecified role in the film. He’ll join Tilda Swinton (‘Snowpiercer’) as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor (‘12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Serenity’) as Baron Mordo and Rachel McAdams (‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’) and Mads Mikkelsen (‘Hannibal’) in as-yet-unconfirmed roles.
Captain America: Civil War
New official art has been released for the upcoming ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ depicting Cap and Iron Man face at odds with each other.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Dave Bautista says of his character, Drax, in ‘ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ that we can expect “a lot more badass Drax.”
“I haven’t read the script, and I’m being completely honest when I say that, but I think, having talked to James Gunn about the film, I know he’s… I hate to give any spoilers, but I know he’s really going to focus on Drax being a badass. He’s still not really going to get metaphors, even though he thinks he does, but he’ll still be that very literal Drax, but I think you’re going to see a lot more badass Drax. As far as the storyline as a whole, I honestly don’t know, and if I did know obviously I wouldn’t tell you, but I hope they’ll continue on with that path.”
He also hopes to see the Guardians teaming up with The Avengers during ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ “I hope that it will tie in with The Avengers somewhere down the road. I’ve only heard rumors, but I’m being honest, and I’ve been honest in the past, I hope that it ends up there because I would love to go there.”
Mark Ruffalo, confirmed as returning as The Hulk in ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ in addressing whether we will see Hulk in another solo movie, pretty much dismissed the possibility due to rights issues: “[It] feels even further away. It’s not Marvel’s property, it’s Universal’s property. I don’t know. It seems really problematic…”
Director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds are in Vancouver for some additional photography on February’s ‘Deadpool’ movie. More pics from those shoots can be found here.
Ten days till ‘Jessica Jones’ is released for viewing on Netflix, so it’s time for another official trailer!
