If one thing is clear about Guardians of the Galaxy, it's that James Gunn and his cast had fun making it. In a new video Gunn shared on his social media channels (where he's very active, Guardians fans), the director interviews his principal cast about "what's great about James Gunn." It's all played nicely for laughs - check it out here.
More Ben Affleck in a Vest! This time, MOVING!
Yes, our pal Samuel Otten is at it again, camping out at the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice on-location filming in Detroit, MI. The newest video from Otten doesn't just show Affleck as Bruce Wayne (or as Dude-in-Vest-1), but actually shows him shooting a scene, where Bruce Wayne saves the day, apparently grabbing a young girl away from some wreckage.
So hey, at least one of the titular heroes will have regard for human life in this one...
Evangeline Lilly is WHO in Ant-Man?
Variety reports that principal photography for Ant-Man is very nearly underway, officially starting next week. But that's far from the interesting part of the write-up by Marc Graser. When talking about the footage shown at Comic-Con International: San Diego last month, which was described at the panel as "test footage" to show what they can do (but was described by Graser as "preliminary footage"), he mentions, "co-stars Corey Stoll and Evangeline Lilly (as the Wasp, another key Avenger)."
Now, officially, we heard from Marvel Studios that Lilly has been cast as Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Hank Pym (played in the film by Michael Douglas). Presumably, given her last name, she would also be the daughter of Janet Van Dyne (the comic book version of The Wasp), but Marvel Studios only officially said she's Hank's daughter and her last name is Van Dyne. As Hope Pym, the character became Red Queen, a villain against the "Avengers Next," themselves other descendants of modern-day Avengers.
Right now, we'll take it with a grain of salt whether Graser was informed of the alter-ego for Lilly's character, or if he simply is speculating that she'll bear that superpowered identity.
In a post on Instagram and Twitter longtime Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger posted an image to announce he had wrapped on the reboot of the franchise - and to reveal the official title of the movie. Terminator: Genisys (yes, that's how it's spelled) will be the new movie's name.
Of course, it was long rumored to be called "Terminator: Genesis," with normal spelling. So what does the new spelling mean? Something about the start of a "system" perhaps? For now, it means that the July 1, 2015 release returns a google search with, "Did you mean terminator genesis?" when you type it correctly.
