Marvel Insiders Talk Guardians Of The Galaxy/Avengers Crossover And Planet Hulk

Guardians/AvengersMarvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t even open for another almost two weeks, but it’s still at the forefront of everyone’s mind. The space adventure screened over the weekend for some critics and people can’t shut up about it. From all accounts it’s as good as we all hoped it would be. Tracking for a successful $60 million dollar opening weekend, people are already talking about the future of the franchise. Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige has come out as teasing one possible future team up, and director James Gunn has put the brakes on rumors of another potential story line.

There may be some things that you will consider SPOILERS beyond this point, not only for Guardians, but also future endeavors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just in case you want to bow out now.

Manhattan Finds The Drama In Creating The Atomic Bomb: This Week’s Sci-Fi Television

ManhattanThe gradual but steady advancement of the scientific method doesn’t always lend itself to the fast-paced needs of a TV show, but when the science in question is the development of the atomic bomb, that’ll tend to add a certain level of drama to the proceedings. At least in theory; this Sunday we’ll get the chance to see if that idea holds true for WGN’s Manhattan — as in “The Manhattan Project.” Created and written by Sam Shaw (Showtime’s Masters of Sex), Manhattan “enters the world of deception, danger and sacrifices that characterized one of the best-kept secrets of all time: the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb.” The pilot was directed by Emmy Award winner Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing).

John Boyega’s Star Wars: Episode VII Character May Have Just Been Revealed

John BoyegaOver the weekend some potential plot details for Star Wars: Episode VII hit the airwaves—not the first, certainly not the last we’ll encounter before the movie drops December 18, 2015. We’ll have to wait and see if any of these rumors come to pass, but now some additional bits concerning the identity of one of the film’s leads have found their way into the public sphere.

There are SPOILERS beyond this point, you may want to STOP READING if you’d rather not know about this sort of thing. And again, these are unconfirmed rumors and should be treated as such, but that doesn’t mean they won’t ruin your day.

Comic-Con 2014: Twelve Panels You Don’t Want To Miss On Saturday

Comic-Con 2014 is almost here! Beginning this Wednesday, one of the largest pop culture events around will completely overwhelm San Diego. There’s so much going on, it’s a monumental task just to figure out which of the countless panels and events you want to try and see. Well, we’re here to make your life just a little bit easier by running down all the panels that should be at the top of your must-see list. Here are our picks for the Saturday events you can’t afford to miss!

FuryRoadWarner Bros. Pictures (10:00am – 12:00pm, Hall H)
Warners has got two major science fiction pictures to show off in their Hall H presentation: George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road and the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending (as well as the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies). Unfortunately, the program guide doesn’t currently list which guests will be on hand to promote things. I would be very surprised if the notoriously media-shy Wachowskis put in an appearance, but I wouldn’t rule out stars Channing Tatum and/or Mila Kunis. On the Mad Max front, I’d guess we might see Miller on hand, and possibly even the new Max himself, actor Tom Hardy. I’d put the chances of somebody asking him to do the Bane voice at 230%. If nothing else, we know the panel will be screening footage from both movies.
