Ibrahim Moustafa has put together this brilliant art series for The Avengers team. Earlier this week Marvel announced that James Spader will face off against Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the villain in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the sequel to 2012’s record-breaking Marvel’s ‘The Avengers.’ The Emmy Award-winning actor will play Ultron in the Avengers’ much anticipated return to the big screen from writer/director Joss Whedon. The film comes to cinemas on May 1sst, 2015.

Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time.
Variety are reporting that Kurt Russell in negotiations to join James Wan’s ‘Fast & Furious 7.’ No description on who Russell would be playing, but sources say it is the role that Universal Pictures originally offered to Denzel Washington — clearly showing its importance to the films story.

No plot details have been unveiled yet, except that the film will return to Los Angeles after the previous five films were set in other locations. This May’s ‘Fast & Furious 6′ is the highest grossing film for Universal Pictures, having made more than $750 million at the worldwide box office.

‘Dark Places,’ the feature adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel starring Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Emmy Award-nominated actress Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll and Tye Sheridan commenced principal photography this week on location in Shreveport, Louisiana.
‘Dark Places’ tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
Following last weeks rumor, Marvel has just officially confirmed that Bradley Cooper will voice Rocket Raccoon in James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ “Rocket has been genetically and mechanically altered,” Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige said of the character in a recent interview. “He’s an experiment from one part of the galaxy.” The badass, anthropomorphic raccoon, who is an expert marksman and master tactician, is a fan favorite in the comicbook world.
To date, the all-star cast for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Academy Award winner Benicio del Toro as The Collector, Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, and six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close as Nova Prime. Ophelia Lovibond, Gregg Henry and Enzo Cilenti also star, while Vin Diesel has been linked to voice Groot in the film.
Hot on the heels of a rumor that originated earlier this week that director Bob Peterson (who had won an Oscar for co-directing ‘Up’ with Pete Docter) had left what would have been his debut as a standalone director, ‘The Good Dinosaur,’ Pixar has confirmed the report though the Los Angeles Times that Peterson has been removed as director on the film. While Pixar haven’t named a replacement, they do say that Peterson intends to remain at the studio and the project will still meet its May 30, 2014 release date. This is the fourth time in eight movies that Pixar has replaced a director midstream.
Pixar president Ed Catmull told the LA Times, “All directors get really deep in their films. Sometimes you just need a different perspective to get the idea out. Sometimes directors … are so deeply embedded in their ideas it actually takes someone else to finish it up. I would go so far as to argue that a lot of live-action films would be better off with that same process.”
