Like many other long-in-development potential blockbusters (Flash Gordon, Ghostbusters 3) the big-budget adaptation of the 1960s television spy show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has seen a hard road to the screen. Languishing since the 1990s, Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin came and went, followed by Steven Soderbergh, who eventually departed with his star George Clooney following.

Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie wound up on board as director, re-writing the script with producer Lionel Wigram. Tom Cruise was attached to star as CIA agents Napoleon Solo before bowing out to focus on Mission: Impossible 5, with Batman v Superman star Henry Cavill taking over opposite Armie Hammer, who has ...

‘Constantine’ Mid-Season Return Preview; Will Now Air Earlier on Fridays

0

The holiday season marks the beginning of a long waiting period for television fans, with most shows now on hiatus until 2015. NBC’s Constantine ended the first half of its debut season on a strong note, despite a decidedly uneven run. We thought its ratings might be on the upswing before the network halted production on additional episodes, making the prospects for additional seasons dicey at this point.

Still, the cliffhanger mid-season finale, ‘The Season of Last Resorts Part 1′ seemed to take steps in the right direction with its move away from the Supernatural-Lite, monster-of-the-week format and embracing some of the story arcs from the DC Comics source material.

We’ll have to wait until January to find out if the showrunners can deliver on any of this, but in the meantime NBC has released a longer look at ‘The Season of Last ...

‘Avengers 2′ Toy Photos Offer a Better Look at Hulkbuster

0

Last week, Hot Toys debuted a first look at their Iron Man figure from Avengers: Age of Ultron, showing Tony Stark in his Mark XLIII Armor. The figure is incredibly detailed, with the photos giving us a pretty great idea of what the Mark 43 suit will look like on the big screen. Now, Hot Toys has debuted more from their Avengers 2 lineup, offering a sneak peek at Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow and Thor in their new costumes. We also get a more detailed look at Hulkbuster and Thanos.

Hot Toys debuted the new lineup of figure at the Toy Soul 2014 Expo this weekend. And as you can see in the tweets below, these toys bring a great idea of what we can expect to see from these main characters in 2015. We also get a look at the Hulk, who pretty much looks exactly like he did in Marvel's The Avengers.

We don't get to see some of the newer characters, like Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. Most disappointing to fans is the absence of Vision. But Hot Toys did debut a life-size Hulkbuster, which you can see in the photos below. That has to make up for it, right? The toy images of Hulkbuster offer our best look yet, and are incredibly detailed. It should be noted that the Iron Man figure shown here is quite different from the one seen in the images from last week. Take a look:
