the-wolverine-teaser-posterOkay, let me start off very blunt- The Wolverine was awesome. Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman in his sixth appearance as the titular character in the X-Men film series, this film almost all but wipes out the bad taste in audience’s mouths left from 2009’s X-Men: Origins- Wolverine film. This film has a surprising amount of depth, and Mangold’s direction and Jackman’s performance blend effortlessly together. While the film is definitely a stand-alone to the X-Men universe and little to no other mutants besides Wolverine are present, it brings in a cast of relatively unknown actors playing such great characters that you are still constantly engaged. That, and the wonderful character development that goes on with Jackman’s Wolverine.

iyrhujMarvel has released the first teaser poster for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which is said to be more of a sequel to The Avengers itself than Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, have been.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie, and Samuel L Jackson. It is due out on April 4th, 2014.

Carrie Fisher Talks Episode 7 Plot. Wink, Wink

han_solo_and_princess_leiaCarrie Fisher always gives good entertainment value, especially when it comes to Star Wars.  She’s at it again with her Episode 7 plot ideas, this time at Sydney Supernova.

“Han Solo and I have been unhappily married for many years, and so we speak through the wookies and use a translator.  I regularly say to R2 ‘Tell that son of a bitch to ***!’ And we have children, but one of them looks a lot like Chewbacca, and we use Yoda, who’s regenerated on a planet somewhere, for marital therapy. I urge Chewie to get waxed for sure!

“There’s also a lot of shopping because there’s cool things to buy and giant planets that are shopping malls. Alderaan means shopping mall by the way. And then I start sleeping with robots, how about that?”

Of course, it is Carrie, sooo…  But isn’t this a lot better than the usual no comments, or details will be released in 2014?

Thanks to Jedi News for spotting this one.
