As Marvel enters the second phase of its movie universe, leading from The Avengers into the already-announced Avengers 2, we’ve gotten solid confirmation on most of the projects on the immediate horizon: Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 are both slated for 2013, with Captain America 2 following in 2014, and Avengers 2 expected one to two years thereafter.
However, Ant-Man - the film based on one of the founding members of The Avengers, and a project which has been in the guiding hands of Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright for years now – has been a noticeable absence in Marvel’s slate of confirmed films. But recent updates from Wright himself may point to Ant-Man coming down the pipeline sooner before later.
Wright was a guest on the

As Marvel Studios enters into its bold new post-Avengers era, there will be a lot of moving parts to keep track of. In the coming years we’ll be getting new rounds of superhero solo films (starting next summer with Iron Man 3), and there are still some unconfirmed (but rumored) projects like Guardians of the Galaxy, which could introduce new heroes and villains into the mix – all leading up to another big showdown in Avengers 2.

With all the success of The Avengers I have been wondering about Jon Favreau. He basically got this whole Avengers ball rolling with the first Iron Man (still my favorite Marvel film) and continued the roll with the less awesome Iron Man 2. THR spoke with the actor/director about Iron Man 3 and The Avengers, and as with all interviews of this nature, he’s very politically correct. However, I’d be curious to hear his thoughts off the record.
We know Favreau really wanted to direct The Avengers at some point, and somewhere it has to bother him that ...

Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan will return to the spy genre with November Man, a newly-announced thriller that is going to pair the fan-fave Irishman with rising star Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s Double, Captain America).
November Man is the first film to be released under a deal between Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime and The Solution Entertainment Group. DreamTime co-head and Brosnan’s frequent collaborator, Beau St. Clair, will produce the project, along with Das Films’ Sriram Das (who helped develop the script) and Dino Conte as executive producer.
Michael Finch (co-writer of Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Trespass) worked together on the script for November Man, which is based primarily on the book “There Are No Spies” by the late Bill Granger. The film adaptation is going to be directed by Roger Donaldson, and is described as ...

If you’re a fan of HBO’s immensely popular supernatural soap opera True Blood, then you walk around everyday with phrases etched in your brain such as “Glamour”, “Fangbanger”, and “V”. Of course, if you were to use these words around non-fans of the show, then they would probably have absolutely no idea what you’re speaking about, and you would probably be looked at much the same way as a werewolf that set foot inside Fangtasia.
HBO has released the latest trailer for season 5 of True Blood, and it looks bloody amazing.
At first glance of the trailer, you will notice that it appears this season will have a much darker tone to it, ...
