How ‘Captain Marvel’ Was Largely Inspired By ‘RoboCop’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with references and homages to staples of several different genres, from Three Days of the Condor (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to Inception (Doctor Strange). One would be forgiven for assuming that with all of the characters wandering around the MCU in metal suits, the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop would have been a mainstay reference in that conversation as well, but it seems like the upcoming Captain Marvel is the first MCU movie to be hea...

Ben Mendelsohn Hilariously Explains What It Means to Be a Skrull in ‘Captain Marvel’ [Set Visit Interview]

Marvel is notoriously secretive about their projects and the cast and crew are very tight-lipped about a film in production. Before visiting a Marvel set, the SHIELD-style Marvel security make you sign an NDA and take a photo on an iPad. Despite NDAs and embargoes, no one can be trusted and the stars of these films are often unsure of what they can and not say in on set interviews. Sometimes this can be frustrating, but other times it can be hilarious. While visiting the set of Captain Marvel...

Jude Law’s ‘Captain Marvel’ Character May Have Been Revealed – By a Toy, of Course

When Jude Law was first cast in Captain Marvel, fans immediately assumed that the chiseled-jawed actor was playing the heroic Mar-Vell — the first character in the Marvel Comics to hold the title of Captain Marvel. But as marketing for Captain Marvel began to roll out, Law’s mystery role was still suspiciously kept under wraps. Now a leaked image of toy merchandise for the film has finally revealed just who Jude Law is playing in Captain Marvel. But beware, it’s not who you expect and could spe...

We Asked a Researcher to Judge the Historically Inaccurate Junk in Robin Hood

I don’t care that Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood played so fast and loose with history it basically exists in an alternate universe. On the contrary, it was one of the things I enjoyed the most about it.

‘Robin Hood’ Review: A Nonsensical but Oddly Charming Take on Familiar Territory

The latest iteration of Robin Hood opens with our hero (Taron Egerton) receiving a letter of conscription into the Crusades, and being thrust directly into the middle of an Iraq War allegory. Robin and his men are dressed in clothes that resemble bulletproof vests, and fire off arrows with such force and speed that director Otto Bathurst might as well have gone all the way and had them toting guns. It’s a nuttiness and strain for modernity (and modern relevance) that persists throughout the ent...
