Mark Ruffalo Promises Hulk Will Be “Hulk-ier” in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

26

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Late last week we heard that Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban would be joining the cast of Thor: Ragnarok, which already included the returning Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba, as well as new additions Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett.

Mark Ruffalo is also starring in the movie as Hulk, though we still don’t have an official idea about how he and his fellow Avenger Thor might be hooking up. We got a small clue from Marvel head Kevin Feige recently, when he confirmed that Natalie Portman would not be returning for the third installment in the Thor series because “there are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie,” with most of the story taking place “in the cosmos.”

Now Ruffalo has provided further hints about the movie, telling Entertainment Tonig...

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (INSERT CATEGORY) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn’t to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19...

13 Superhero Movies Perfect for Justin Bieber

On the back side of the Funky Bunch, we never imagined that Marky Mark would emerge as Mark Wahlberg, top marquee draw and an Oscar nominee. While DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince was a fun and popular pop act of the 80s, no one living through 1988 ever thought, “That Will Smith sure has box office gold written all over him!” Cut to thirty years later, and he too is a multiple Oscar nominee and one of today’s top leading men. While Justin Timberlake hasn’t exactly set the big screen ablaze, he’s become a beloved institution amongst the hipster marketplace, as well as a sought out persona amongst all other demographics who love his comedy on Saturday Night Live, bathe in his music, or applaud his various turns at dramatic acting. He’s the closet thing we have to Frank Sinatra today.

Avengers: Infinity War Won't Include Any Marvel TV Characters?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown by leaps and bounds ever since Iron Man kicked things off exactly eight years ago today, back in 2008. The studio now has a number of hit TV shows on both ABC and Netflix, which have featured minor crossovers into the MCU. But thus far, none of the movies have featured any of the characters from TV shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Netflix series like Daredevil. Some have speculated that, with the massive two-part adventure Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Avengers: Infinity War – Part II gearing up to start shooting later this year, some of the MCU TV characters will be joining the fight against the Mad Titan, Thanos. But that probably won’t be the case.

Avengers: Infinity War directors, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, recently shed some light on ...

Green Lantern Isn't Coming to The CW Anytime Soon

Back in March, it was teased that The CW’s new DC Comics TV series Legends of Tomorrow will be introducing a new character from the comics in the Season 1 finale. Just a few weeks later, it was revealed that Suits star Patrick J. Adams has come aboard to play this mysterious character, who was later rumored to be both Booster Gold and Green Lantern. As it turns out, both of those reports were wrong, with the season finale, which aired last night, revealing the actor as DC hero Hourman. Just hours before the finale aired, though, executive producer Marc Guggenheim made it clear that there are no future plans for Green Lantern to appear in the DC TV universe.

Shortly after the Booster Goldrumor surfaced in March, another report claimed Patrick J...
