On the Friday night edition of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Joss Whedon stopped by to promote Much Ado About Nothing, but he also wound up talking about The Avengers 2. When asked by Fallon for an Avengers 2 scoop, Joss Whedon said, “There are new characters. I already said that we’re going to have a brother/sister team, the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, who were great mainstays of The Avengers when I was reading the comics as a kid.” Jimmy
Fast & Furious 6 is earning rave reviews from audiences and is even doing surprisingly well with critics. While a car chase movie isn’t generally the type of film that is the darling of critics, most critics seem to at least be praising the film for being very well done for what it is. Of course, one of the highlights of Fast & Furious 6 is a post-credits scene. If you haven’t seen Fast & Furious 6 yet, then we

Earlier today, we mentioned that there may be a sequence in Man of Steel in which Superman is depicted in an all-black version of his costume. Without getting into any spoilers, it seems to be one of the film’s key moments, and is being played up in some of the movie merchandise for its cool imagery.

With a comic book sequel already in the works and a base of fans who have mobilized an impressive social media presence in support of a follow-up, it’s perhaps no susprise that Rebellion, the studio behind last year’s Dredd 3D, are considering their options for keeping the franchise alive in spite of an underwhelming performance at the box office.

In the latest teaser-tweet from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 director Marc Webb, the director provides himself sitting around a crater fire, apparently after something damaging detonated in the Oscorp lab.

This one’s a little more iffy and maybe just a bit of wishful thinking, but if it’s the first thing that sprang to
