Zachary Levi's Guardians Of The Galaxy Audition Landed Him Shazam

Zachary Levi is one of those actors who, like J.K. Simmons and Willem Dafoe, has had a role in both DC and Marvel movies. DC fans know him as the hero of "Shazam," while in the Marvel Cinematic Universe he took over the role of the dashing Fandral from Josh Dallas in "Thor: The Dark World" (only to be quickly killed off in the next movie as director Taiki Waititi cleaned house).Levi almost played a much larger role in the MCU, however. In fact, he was up for the starring, nay, star-lording role ...

An Open Letter To My Younger Self

Hi, it's me.  You don't know me, but in time you will. I have the benefit of time and experience on my side and wanted to share some thoughts with you if you're willing to listen. If you receive this, please know that it comes from a good place.  Let's talk about that time in high school when you ran with the cool kids for a short while before they rejected you. What they rejected was how hard you were trying to be something that you weren't. You'd think this experience would have taught you...

Seth Rogen To Star In Donkey Kong Movie Whether You Like It Or Not

Laugh at superstition all you want, but I believe we're just about to definitively prove that bad news really does come in threes. First came the report that Chris Pratt would be voicing the legendary video game character and stalwart of Italian representation known as Mario for an animated "Super Mario Bros." movie (along with a whole bunch of big names who aren't actual voice actors, notably!). We mostly laughed it off ironically, used it as fuel for several jokes and memes, and otherwise went...

More airlines are choosing single-aisle jets for flights from North America to Europe - see the full evolution of jet-powered transatlantic flying

Widebody vs narrowbody aircraft Boeing, Airbus Widebody aircraft have historically dominated the transatlantic market due to their high capacity and low costs. With the rise of long-range narrowbodies, many airlines are opting to put single-aisle jets on flights across the pond. Narrowbody jets are preferable for their high efficiency and profitability for low-demand city pairs. For decades, transatlantic flying had been dominated by wide-body jets designed for high capacity long-haul ...

Chris Pratt Was Championed For Guardians Of The Galaxy By A Surprising Supporter Outside Marvel Studios

In hindsight, Chris Pratt was the obvious choice for Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, the brash, earnestly goofy leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy. It's almost impossible to see anybody else in the role at this point, but it's easy to forget that he was far from the obvious superhero choice when James Gunn was casting his wildly different MCU entry.We have a new book out now that goes in-depth behind the scenes of the MCU called "The Story of Marvel Studios," which our own Ethan Anderton reviewed ...
