‘The Devil All The Time’ Replaces Chris Evans with Sebastian Stan

When Chris Evans goes somewhere, Sebastian Stan usually isn’t far behind – at least in Marvel Studios movies. But that’s also turned out to be true today in the real world. Evans has just dropped out of an upcoming Netflix film called The Devil All The Time, but Stan has stepped in to replace him. Is this a precursor of what will happen with the Captain America franchise in the MCU in the wake of Avengers: Endgame? Who knows, but you can read more about The Devil All The Time cast below.

'Iron Man 3' Finds Its Hero in Crisis

None One question loomed over Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013) from its inception: Why doesn't he just call the Avengers? After all, Tony Stark/Iron Man had just appeared in the biggest superhero film of all time, a team-up consisting of him, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and the combined resources of SHIELD (including Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye). How could the filmmakers devise a serious, dangerous scenario for the character in which he would not call his super-friends? Longtime comic...

Ryan Coogler Thought Marvel Would Cut Black Panther's Most Powerful Line

Black Panther’s Erik Killmonger is one of the MCU’s most complex villains. His heartbreaking dialogue toward the end of the film is one of his most powerful moments and perhaps something you wouldn’t normally expect to hear in a superhero film. Black Panther co-writers Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole put it in there…Read more...

Freedom EV: free/open replacement firmware for your electric vehicle -- including a Tesla

Freedom EV is a free/open software stack intended to replace the software in your electric vehicle, it's been tested on a Tesla Model X and should work on a Model S, if you can get root. Electric vehicles are very exciting but the same informatics and versatility that make them exciting also invite manufacturers to add all kinds of antifeatures (like batteries with plenty of charge remaining that refuse to power a vehicle because you've only paid for so much electricity; to say nothing of t...

Kevin Feige Will Take Over The X-Men, Disney Will Search For New Wolverine [TCA 2019]

The last X-Men films to be released by 20th Century Fox will be Dark Phoenix and New Mutants. After that, the X-Men franchise will be under Disney, along with all of Fox’s properties. That means the X-Men will be part of Marvel Studios under Kevin Feige.

Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers' Blasts Away All Other Comic Book Films

None There has long been a debate amongst contemporary film fans over the value of "mass entertainment", or "popcorn films". One side sees these types of films as juvenile frivolities, made for undiscerning mainstream audiences and lacking the substance of more serious, mature films. These fans are particularly disturbed by the increasing size and quantity of these mass entertainment films in recent years, as they seem to be leaving little room in the budgets or release schedules of major stud...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Also Double as a Nick Fury Origin Story

Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers is, of course, the main focus of Captain Marvel. But the superhero film also has a few familiar MCU faces backing her up – most notably Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury. Since Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, we’re going to see a much younger, eyepatch-free Nick Fury. And based on the trailers released, Fury almost looks like Carol’s sidekick in the film, hitting the road with her when she crashes to earth. Does that make Captain Marvel a Nick Fury origin story as mu...

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...

2018 in Movies

The two-headed Roman god Janus could see into the past with one face and into the future with the other, and as such is generally regarded as the god of things like beginnings, transitions, and time (amongst other such concepts). So too is the month January named after Janus, as it's a transition to a new year. An almost completely arbitrary one, to be sure, but it's good to take some time out to strap on our Janus mask, take a step back and reflect on where we are and where we're going. When it...

Before we get into the most obvious thing about the upcoming movies for 2019 – which is, Marvel is going to make a lot of money, again – can we first look forward to some great filmmakers who’ll be doing exactly what they want to do? Like Martin Scorsese, whose Netflix-backed “The Irishman” reunites our greatest living filmmaker with old cronies Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, and tosses Al Pacino into the bargain. It’s a mob epic that spans decades, with a lot of digital de-aging, ...
