He’s also seen as an actor who enjoys his fans and being More >

The Hollywood DGA held an Avengers screening and Q&A where director Joss Whedon revealed his original ideas for the superhero team movie. One of the big revelations for me was that he didn’t want Loki to be the sole villain to take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. His role would have been shared with More >
Jeremy Renner hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Known for his serious action roles, Renner got to show his comedic/musical side. Mainly, he got to make fun of his Avengers character, Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye. Renner has been open about his opinion on the character in an interview with More >
Mark Millar, co-creator of Kick-Ass and Wanted and writer of Marvel’s Civil War, pretty much wants what all of us Marvel fans wanted, to have all the characters in the Marvel film universe to “complement” each other. It’s cool that FOX’s comic book movie advisor thinks that way, but will FOX More >
A new comic has been released under the Marvel NOW! banner called Avengers Arena Murder World. It puts two of my favorites together: Battle Royale and superhumans. For those that don’t know what Battle Royale is, picture Hunger Games but a lot bloodier and much better. It’s the More >
One of the biggest moments in the Superhero blockbuster that had everyone talking was the tragic death of Agent Coulson in The Avengers. Clark Gregg had been a part of the franchise from the very beginning (Iron Man), and to see him go was bitter sweet for many fans.

We have seen many superhero films come and go over the years. The last one I ever expected to succeed as a big budget summer tentpole was Marvel Studio’s THOR.
