The search to find a director for Marvel's Doctor Strange is reportedly down to just three names. Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) and Mark Andrews (Brave), who were listed as contenders in a report from last month, are still on the short list, along with Scott Derrickson (Sinister), according to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit.

Just a few days after the original story broke in February, Kevin Feige revealed that the directors listed in that report were not accurate, which also included Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday). The producer did confirm that they were looking at a number of different filmmakers though, but it isn't known when Marvel intends to make a final decision on who will take the helm of Doctor Strange.
No cast members have been confirmed yet, although it was rumored in January that Johnny Depp may be in contention, while Crispin Glover revealed last month that he would love to take on the role. It isn't known when Marvel plans on making this superhero adventure, although it has been confirmed to be a part of Phase Three. Many believe that this project will be one of the three untitled movies that Marvel has already set release dates for, Untitled Marvel Project 2016 (May 6, 2016}, Second Untitled Marvel Project 2016 (July 8, 2016) and Untitled Marvel Project 2017 (May 5, 2017).

So, with “Phase 2″ of the Marvel Cinematic Universe now fully sketched out, we’ve started to look forward to what lies ahead in “Phase 3.”

While we saw a small portion of the Nebula (Karen Gillan) vs. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) fight scene from Guardians of the Galaxy in a brief character featurette last month, actress Karen Gillan shed more light on the "big girlie fight sequence" in a new interview, where she also discusses the level of humor in this Marvel Phase Two adventure and shooting with Zoe Saldana.
During an interview for her new movie Oculus at SXSW 2014, Karen Gillan revealed that this fight sequence isn't very "girlie" at all, while discussing how much training she had to undergo and commenting on the importance of this pivotal moment for her character.
There are some fans who have expressed their disapproval regarding the amount of humor seen in the first trailer last month, but the actress revealed she always had faith in the Marvel Phase Two sequel, while claiming the movie represents a new direction for Marvel Studios as a whole
She did admit that, while the movie itself is rather humorous, Nebula does not think she's funny at all.
The actress also commented on how she missed having long hair, since she was required to shave her head to play Nebula.
Guardians of the Galaxy comes to theaters August 1st, 2014 and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan. The film is directed by James Gunn.

Nowadays stories set in post-apocalyptic visions of the future are so popular that they’re practically commonplace, but this spring director Darren Aronofsky is bringing one of the original apocalypse tales to the screen in Noah, a big-budget epic retelling of the well-known Bible story. Russell Crowe plays the lead: a man who suffers visions of a great flood and recruits his family in building an enormous ark (which is sadly not called Tugger) to save his loved ones and a few thousand birds and beasts from certain death.
Joining Noah in the ark are Jennifer Connelly as his wife Naameh, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth as his sons Ham and Shem, and Emma Watson as his adopted daughter Ila. Watson herself introduces the latest trailer for Noah with the long-standing British tradition of extreme awkwardness. Even ...
