    Captain America has called Donald Trump a "puppet" following a summit between the US leader and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Well, the actor who plays him has anyway. Chris Evans was reacting to Mr Trump's decision to defend Russia over allegations it interfered in the US election that made Donald Trump president - contradicting what his own intelligence agencies say. The Avenger called it a "disgrace". "Politics aside", the Democrat said on Twitter, "This is 100% un-American".

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star Daniella Pineda says her character in the film is gay - not that you would know from watching it. She told Build that the line with the reveal was cut from the movie "for the sake of time". In the scene, she's talking to Chris Pratt's character. "I look at Chris and I'm like: 'Square jaw, good bone structure, tall, muscles - I don't date men, but if I did, it would be you'," she said. Daniella continued: "I love that I'm looking at Chris Pratt, like the hottest guy in the world and I'm...

    After the media decided to take Marvel executives to task for not having enough LGBTQIA representation in their live-action films, Marvel Studios runner Kevin Feige was pressured into confirming that there will be more out and about characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a means of attempting to assuage the Rainbow Reich. Speaking with The Playlist, the outlet practically coerced Feige into confirming that LGBTQ heroes or heroines will be featured in upcoming movies after they complained that Ant-Man and The Wasp didn’t feature any flamboyantly gay characters, with the outlet writing…. “The context for the interview was for...

    Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says there will be two LGBTQ characters in future films — and we already know one of them. We just don’t know exactly who he means. In an interview about with Gregory Ellwood of The Playlist, Feige answer “yes” to the question: “When are we getting a Gay, Bi, LGBTQ, out character in the MCU? Is it even in the works?” When asked if they’re characters we’ve already seen, or characters who will be new to the story line, Feige replied: “Both… Both ones you’ve seen and ones you haven’t seen.” The answers were tight-lipped,...

    It looks like Ms. Marvel is finally one step closer to joining the MCU. During an interview with the BBC, Kevin Feige revealed that a film with the Muslim teen superhero Kamala Khan is "definitely sort of in the works". "Captain Marvel's shooting right now with Brie Larson," Feige said. "Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort of in the works. We have plans for that once we've introduced Captain Marvel to the world." The character, who is of Pakistani descent from New Jersey, is...

    In an era where the social climate where the landscape for marginalized communities are shifting — in both good and bad ways — Benedict Cumberbatch has come forward to give his stance on a pressing issue facing Hollywood and beyond: pay equality. Dr. Strange is attempting to work his magic and his influential platform to change the way women are paid in Hollywood. In a recent interview with Radio Times magazine, Cumberbatch said, “Equal pay and a place at the table are the central tenets of feminism.

    After breaking opening weekend records, Avengers: Infinity War continued to dominate in its second weekend in theaters, but alternative programming like the romantic comedy Overboard also found an audience in what has historically been considered the 'official' kick-off to the summer movie season. The Walt Disney Co. said Sunday that Avengers: Infinity War will gross an estimated $112.5 million from North American theaters over the weekend, becoming the second highest grossing film in weekend two behind 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'' $149.2 million and just slightly ahead of 'Black Panther' ($111.7 million).

    On Saturday, "Avengers: Infinity War" set another box office record, becoming the fastest film in history to gross $1 billion worldwide. The Marvel film will reach the milestone on its eleventh day in theaters, beating the record held by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" by one day. On Friday, the film made $31.4 million domestically and $38.5 million overseas, bringing its global total to $974.5 million. When it crosses the $1 billion mark today, Disney will have been responsible for half of the 34 films that have reached that mark, with six coming from Marvel Studios. Disney has also now...

    Disney/Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War arrived on tracking today with numbers that literally indicate the movie could open to $200M-plus, easily on its way to a record April debut. Note this is an industry prediction, not one from Disney. The studio is historically conservative with their projections. The asterisk here is that when films chart this high on tracking, it becomes hard to predict their opening, and we also have to remind you of the cap that April has: its record $100M-plus weekends of Furious 7 ($147M) and Fate of the Furious ($98.7M) occurred over Easter holiday weekends, while The Jungle...

    Deadpool’s back — or will be shortly. The first *official* trailer (teasers have leaked) for the mid-May release of Deadpool 2 has arrived, and so has Dopinder, Vanessa, Weasel, the hip fourth-wall-breaking and self-referential dialogue … and oh yeah, lots of bloody violence and a hard NSFW warning. Among those self-referential quips is one from DP to Dopinder setting expectations for the film to “live up to the hype, plus-plus.” Does the trailer live up to the hype? You bet — but we’ll have to wait two months to see whether the film does.

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | February 25, 2018 | Pamela McClintock
    Ryan Coogler's groundbreaking superhero pic Black Panther continued to defy all expectations in its sophomore outing, grossing an estimated $108 million from 4,020 theaters to score the top second weekend of all time behind 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Disney and Marvel title reached the $400 million mark domestically in only 10 days after dropping a narrow 47 percent in its second weekend. That's one of the smallest declines ever for a superhero title, as well as one of the smallest for a film launching north of $200 million (the bigger the opening, the bigger the drop in...

    Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” is re-writing the record books, topping “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for the second-highest four-day domestic opening of all time, with $242 million at 4,020 North American locations. The superhero pic set a record for top Monday domestic gross ever, with $40.2 million, edging the previous high set by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $40.1 million. The Monday total came in $7 million above the studio’s projections and lifted the four-day haul to $242 million. “Black Panther” has grossed the second-highest four-day total of all time, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $288.1 million...

    Deadline Holywood ^ | February 18, 2018 | Anthony D'Alessandro
    Sunday, 12:31AM: Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther is even more ferocious than ever imagined. Late night estimates (not from Disney) indicate that T’Challa is headed to $194M over three-days after a super Saturday night between $66.8M-$68M which is only 11% down from Friday on the high-end. Also if you back out $25.2M Thursday previews from Friday’s $76.4M, Saturday’s business is still technically +33%. So that means business for Black Panther wasn’t front-loaded. Four-day figures remain a wild forecast for many analysts: They’re certain that Black Panther is expected to clear $220M, but he could fly as high as $230M. Projections at this...

    There is a whole lot to like about Marvel’s $200 million Black Panther, and almost as much not to like. For starters, director and co-writer Ryan Coogler does an A+ job of world building (more on this later). In addition, the soundtrack and score also deserve an A+. Then there are the actors, the best cast yet assembled in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (by far). Black Panther is set in the fictional Wakanda, an idyllic country hidden in the heart Africa thanks to an alien metal called vibranium. This resource (delivered eons ago by way of a meteor)...
