With the CBS Sherlock Holmes crime series ELEMENTARY becoming one of the highest rated new dramas of the fall season, executive producer Rob Doherty revealed that there are some great surprises up ahead, most notable is the introduction of famed Holmes nemesis Moriarty. “Moriarty is coming, still coming, so look forward to back end of season,” says Doherty. “It’s tricky business, but I can’t wait to get more serious about Moriarty. In this day and age, it’s virtually impossible to stunt a role. Everyone knows in the universe he will be coming as a character so we have to be […]Read On »

One of the great things about the Marvel movies that led up to the first AVENGERS film is how well they built a consistent universe with seeds planted all along the way leading up to the big epic battle for New York City and the world. The appearance of – SPOILERS! – Thanos during the closing credits suggests they know full well where they’re going next in AVENGERS 2 or 3, but let’s take a look at some past Avengers storylines in the comics that might make for good movie fodder. 1. The Infinity Gauntlet This one is probably a […]Read On »

We already know – SPOILERS! – Thanos is on the way in the next THE AVENGERS movie, but what other famous foes from Avengers stories of the past deserve a shot at big screen stardom? After all, heroes are only as good as the villains they face. We list a few here, but they’re only suggestions; and no, Count Nefaria is not on this list. Complain all you like in the comments about that glaring omission or the lack of Baron Zemo, but remember that this is just one list for our villainous THE AVENGERS 2 and 3 films; you […]Read On »

Cobie Smulders has long been hailed for her comedic prowess as Robin Sherbatsky on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, now gearing up for its eighth season on CBS. However, with writer/director Joss Whedon’s box-office superhero THE AVENGERS from Disney and Marvel, Smulders shows off her action star side as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill, running, sliding and shooting with the best of them. There are big differences in doing a weekly TV comedy series and a giant studio action feature film, Smulders notes. “It’s definitely a shift in schedule,” says Smulders. “I made it a point to do a lot of […]Read On »

On May 3, 2013, IRON MAN 3 hits theaters and the big question will be — how much has THE AVENGERS given that franchise an even bigger push into the boxoffice stratosphere? In the meantime, we can salivate over what director Shane Black has in store for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Iron Man, but in the interim, we have this first look photo behind-the-scenes as the film begins production in Wilmington, North Carolina. Check out the image below. Joining Downey for the third go-around is Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon […]Read On »

Interview: THE AVENGERS composer Alan Silvestri makes the Avengers assemble

If you’re looking for a composer whose genre soundtracks seem to be printed in four colors as opposed to written with musical notes, then Alan Silvestri’s scores would be equivalent to the bright hues that compose comic book art. From the brawny militarism of PREDATOR, ERASER and JUDGE DREDD to the mythic exploits of THE MUMMY RETURNS, VAN HELSING and BEOWULF, Alan Silvestri’s talents have grown from the disco motorcycle beats of CHiPS to becoming the embodiment of do-gooding orchestral might. It’s music that captures any big kid’s dream of fighting cosmic evil, role-playing that’s accomplished with massive symphonic themes […]Read On »

Five New Avengers Heroes We Want to See in AVENGERS 2 and 3

When you look at the history of Marvel Comics, just about everyone – even members of other long-standing teams and dedicated loners – have called themselves Avengers at one time or another. So the field is wide open for AVENGERS 2 and 3, but there is the ‘critical mass’ element; some of the team from the first film might have to sit one out to give others their screen time. After all, how many Avengers can you cram into one movie? But given the heroes we’ve already seen assemble, there are some obvious core members that really should turn up […]Read On »

There may or may not be one more scene added to THE AVENGERS before its release. At a press conference on Thursday, AVENGERS star Robert Downey, Jr. announced, “We are shooting one more scene tonight. Not kidding.” At a second press conference immediately following this, AVENGERS writer/director Joss Whedon was asked about this. His response: “It’s Robert. Of course he’s kidding.” Who’s the real kidder here? Tell us what you think! Our guess, is it might be a new coda that will appear after the end credits like all the Marvel movies tend to drop in at the last minute. […]Read On »
