If it’s a week day, and you’re bored”¦ Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are the perfect medicine, so here’s a new one.
Marvel is pretty much untouchable lately. 2014 brought us the most fun superhero movie since the original Avengers in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and they’ve already scored in 2015 with Netflix’s Daredevil series. This week is one close to my heart. A movie heatedly debated between me and my friend Chris for YEARS! With Avengers: Age of Ultron premiering this Friday, May 1st, let’s travel back to 2003 to mock one of the biggest Marvel flops, Ang Lee’s Hulk!
“You loved Mark Ruffalo. You tolerated Edward Norton. But admit it; you forgot about Eric Bana until I said his name just now.”
The Avengers assembled at Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and pretty much took over the show (of course). The stars were there right before they were to “walk across the street” to the The Avengers: Age of Ultron world premiere. Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) participated in The Avengers Family Feud, played telephone, talked to “Super Fans,” and answered some pertinent questions.
Watch all the amazing videos here below, including a post-credits video with Kimmel and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd)!
It’s the start of a new year, time for a new calendar!
And as it turns out, calendar years occasionally repeat. For instance, 2015’s days and dates line up exactly with those of 1981. So, cartoonist Mark Anderson took his copy of a Marvel Comics 20th Anniversary calendar from 1981 and lovingly scanned and posted the pages online for all to use!
The 1981 calendar features beloved Marvel characters like Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, and others created by artists like Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Sinnott, John Romita Jr., Frank Miller, George Perez, and more.
Imagine your favorite comic book, movie, and fairy tale heroes and villains if they existed during the Renaissance. What might a painted portrait of them from those times have looked like?
Wonder no more. Photographer Sacha Goldberger was part of an event in Paris recently where these iconic characters—including Batman, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, The Hulk, Darth Vader, Catwoman, Princess Leia, Joker, Superman, Snow White, and others—were photographed with a decidedly old school look to them, creating a fascinating set of Renaissance painting-style cosplay images.
You can check out a bunch of the images below to see how some of your favorites would have looked in a different time.
At the Marvel Studios panel in Hall H at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where the first trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron premiered, we got to see a 6-minute sizzle reel highlighting the Phase 1 and 2 films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel has now released that video, which you can watch here below.
