Adam McKay addresses 'Ant-Man' reports: 'Not sure it can work'

Numerous reports over the weekend said Adam McKay was in early talks to helm Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man adaptation, or was close to signing a deal, or was already in the director’s chair. So the Anchorman director took to Twitter on Saturday to clear up the rumors:

The unconventional superhero tale starring Paul Rudd is in need of a director since Edgar Wright left the film last week. Wright — known for the Cornetto Trilogy and his adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World — issued a joint statement with Marvel announcing his departure over creative differences. READ FULL STORY

Marvel won't make a 'One-Shot' short film for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' -- EXCLUSIVE

Bad news, Marvel fans: The studio has put a hold on its popular One-Shot series of short films, and won’t be including one on the Blu-ray release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Sources close to the studio confirm that the omission of a short in the new list of bonus features for the Aug. 19 release is no accident — and it’s not a bit of H.Y.D.R.A.-like misdirection, either.

This isn’t necessarily the ultimate end of the One-Shot movies, but fans may have to wait until at least the home video debut of Guardians of the Galaxy before seeing another (if Marvel Studios decides to keep the series going). It’s a surprising move, given that the One-Shots have only been growing in scale, and have inspired two prime-time ABC television series.

Marvel Studios and Wright issued a joint statement Friday announcing the news: “Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”

Disney releases trailer for Marvel's first animated film 'Big Hero 6' -- VIDEO

These days, Marvel seems to be smashing its Hulk fist into every entertainment medium: movies (Captain America 2 broke April box office records), television (ABC will be premiering Agent Carter this fall, along with a second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), even amusement parks (visit Disneyland’s Tomorrowland and you can see Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.) Oh yeah, and there are also those Netflix shows. So it should come as no surprise that Disney Animation is now stepping into the world with the trailer debut for its futuristic film, Big Hero 6.

More gun fights. More spaceship explosions. More Peter Quill swagger. And more Groot.

Since last week, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the newest trailer for Marvel’s upcoming intergalactic adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy — and its arrival did not disappoint. In addition to extended looks of our ragtag team in action (and do I mean action — check out those fights!) the trailer also gave us our first look at Glenn Close as Prime Rael, commander of the Nova forces, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, as well as another glimpse of Benicio Del Toro’s The Collector. (Still no glimpse of Thanos, though…) Watch the trailer below:

GUARDIANS-OF-GALAXY.jpg

Marvel Studios is offering another peek at what space saga Guardians of the Galaxy will deliver when it hits theaters on Aug. 1. And by peek, we mean a blink-and-you-miss-it teaser.

Until then, enjoy Pratt’s crazy-ripped physique, which appears to get as much screen time as any character in the new teaser: READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Neighbors' evicts 'Spider-Man 2' from top spot

SUNDAY UPDATE: Neighbors is No. 1 movie at the weekend box office with an estimated $51.1 million.

ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.

Meanwhile, The Other Woman continued to show legs in its third week of release, earning $2.8 million for a total gross of $55.2 million.

Stan Lee lets slip news of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cameo

Samuel L. Jackson has been in most of the blockbuster Avengers-universe movies, but even Nick Fury can’t compete with the superhero ubiquity of Stan Lee. The comic book legend has had winking cameos in 18 different Marvel movies since X-Men premiered in 2000, but he’s usually limited himself to movies based on characters he helped create. Well, that’s about to change. READ FULL STORY

Behind the Shield: The surreal making of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' -- EXCLUSIVE

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it’s getting harder for the superhero to tell the difference. In the latest installment from Marvel Studios’ interlocked franchise, Chris Evans’ unfrozen genetically-enhanced warrior from the Greatest Generation is still unsure of his place in the world after helping to save it twice: once from the forces of Red Skull in 2011’s original Captain America, and again from an alien invasion in 2012’s The Avengers.

The Winter Soldier features an eponymous new villain — a bioengineered assassin with a mechanical arm—who is targeting the leadership of the global protection force S.H.I.E.L.D. The film, directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (already being courted by Marvel for more), reteams Evans with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as top operatives for the group. But Cap (alias Steve Rogers) is beginning to question whether he and S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the same side. Sebastian Stan plays the Winter Soldier, and anyone who saw the first film knows his character’s history with Rogers runs deep. If there’s an overall theme in the movie, it’s this: Old friends make the worst enemies.

EW visited the set of The Winter Soldier last July. It’s the day after Comic-Con ended. Footage screened for fans at the annual convention had lathered the geeky faithful into a frenzy, but no one is celebrating on set. Instead of passing around high fives, the cast members are punching each other in the face. READ FULL STORY

'X-Men: Apocalypse': Who will return? What new mutants may appear? Scoop on the next X-Men film -- EXCLUSIVE

We’re still weeks away from the unveiling of Fox’s ginormous X-Men: Days of Future Past (the cover of this week’s EW) but, fittingly, director Bryan Singer and producer/writer Simon Kinberg can only look ahead: The pair are developing, along with X2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty, the next X-Men film, Apocalypse, slated for May 27, 2016. Not much about the film is known, but Singer says that the film will be “somewhat” based on the 1990 comic storyline “Age of Apocalypse,” which features ancient villain Apocalypse and imagines an alternate universe. “[The movie] won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with,” admits Singer. Adds Kinberg, “From a visual standpoint it actually may be a bigger movie than Days of Future Past because there’ll be disaster movie imagery, like the title would imply.” READ FULL STORY
