Tom Hiddleston Explains Loki’s Absence In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

After a fan favorite turn as the villainous Loki in Marvel’s Avengers, many fans were surprised at the character’s absence from this summer’s sequel. During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Tom Hiddleston explained just why this was.

“In test screenings, audiences had sort-of overemphasized Loki’s role. They thought that because I was in it, I was controlling Ultron. It was actually imbalancing people’s expectations, so Joss and Kevin were like, ‘Let’s cut it, because it’s confusing people.'”

Spider-Man Director Hints At Miles Morales

Jon Watts, director of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot for Marvel and Sony, recently alluded to the possibility of Miles Morales showing up in the new film.

“I can’t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much,” he tells us. “We’re still writing the story…we haven’t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.”

Originally introduced after the death of Peter Parker in the Ultimate universe, the black-and-red suited Miles Morales has since crossed over to become the main Earth-616 Spider-Man.

Meg LeFauve Talks Writing Captain Marvel

One of Marvel’s most anticipated films is Captain Marvel, which was unfortunately pushed back yet again yesterday to a 2019 release date. Earlier this year, Marvel confirmed the hiring of both Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman to work on the screenplay for the upcoming film and since then, things have been rather quiet. It’ll be some time before an actress is cast in the role or before the film lands a director, but that hasn’t stopped the writers from talking about the upcoming project and what the hardest part of writing for a character like Carol Danvers is – showcasing her vulnerability.

MEG LeFAUVE: Yeah, we haven’t started yet! We have not started yet. We just got the phone call to come over to Marvel. But for me personally, the wonderful thing about her and the challenge of her is going to be that she’s a female superhero. And that is awesome because she’s so powerful, and how hard is that going to be because she’s so powerful? We don’t want the Superman curse. “What’s her vulnerability?” is what we have to figure out.

Benicio Del Toro Seemingly Confirmed For GotG: Vol. 2

Not too long ago, Benicio Del Toro seemed unsure about his involvement in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 which is set to begin production in February of next year. It hand’t helped that he’d landed a villain role in 2017’s Star Wars: Episode VIII, which led many to assume that there wasn’t any way he’d be able to do both Star Wars and Guardians.

Well, now it looks as though he’ll indeed be doing both. In a recent video uploaded to her husband’s Facebook page, Zoe Saldana (Gamora) seemed to confirm Del Toro’s return as The Collector in the highly anticipated sequel!

Bryan Cranston Would Be Up For A “Nasty” Marvel Villain Role

There are few names that are fan-cast in comic book properties these days as often as Mads Mikkelsen, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Bryan Cranston. And with Mikkelsen possibly circling a role in Doctor Strange, it’s hard not to try and place both Gyllenhaal and Cranston in various roles within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While speaking to Metro during the London Film Festival for the premiere of his new film Trumbo, Cranston revealed that there’s one role he’d love to play and his answer is pretty interesting.

‘You know what I’d like to do? I’d like to do some big superhero villain in some Marvel classic,’ he revealed.

But he has no plans to play a long-standing Marvel bad guy. No, Bryan has his eye on an original: ‘Create one from scratch… I don’t know what I would do but it would be nasty.’

What do you think? Would you want to see Cranston take on a villainous role in the MCU? And if so, what film do you think would work best for him?
