It’s no secret that Marvel’s movie universe is expanding and the more films the comic book giant pumps, the more actors they’ll need to play them. Who knows, maybe actor Chadwick Boseman will get a shot… not that he’d tell us anyway.
MTV News caught up with the rising actor on Saturday when he was at New York’s famed Apollo theater to promote his upcoming film “Get On Up,” the powerful James Brown biopic which will open on August 1. Boseman nailed his starring role as the iconic soul singer, but when we asked him to confirm rumors that he will be playing Black Panther in an upcoming Marvel film, he just laughed it off.
“I know nothing of it, I have no knowledge of this,” Boseman said after a hearty (and curious) laugh. “It’s not out of the question, but I have no direct knowledge of this.”
Black Panther made his first appearance in 1966 and has had ties to the Avengers, so maybe an “Age of Ultron” cameo is on the horizon or a film or television show of his own. We’re not sure what Marvel has planned, but hopefully we will all have direct knowledge after the smoke clears at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
Get excited by the video at the source:
omggggggg. Focusing on positive casting rumors tbh!!
been visiting the Australian mogul in New York City,
taking pains to keep her visits secret
Is Miranda Kerr telling a “Packer” lies? [journo should hang head in shame]
The supermodel recently dismissed reports that she’s dating Australian billionaire James Packer following her split last October from Orlando Bloom.
But Confidenti@l has learned that Kerr has been stealthily visiting Packer at his New York City hotel, even going to the trouble of changing cars en route to throw paparazzi off her trail.
“She’s being very discreet,” says our source, “What she’ll do is go to (Upper West Side hotel) the Mandarin Oriental in an Uber (car service), hang out for like 15 minutes and then take a different Uber out so that she can sneak by the paps. Then she’ll stop along the way to make sure she wasn’t being followed.”
While the Victoria’s Secret stunner has been pictured all over town in the past week, she has also kept her visits to the Greenwich Hotel under wraps. Confidenti@l is told that the model was spotted leaving the swanky downtown hotel — where Packer has been seen several times in the past week — on Friday morning and returning that evening.
Reports first surfaced in Australia in December that Kerr and Packer, a pal of Tom Cruise and other celebs including Bloom, were dating. Later that month Kerr reportedly spent several days on Packer’s superyacht, the Arctic P, off Cyprus.
It's no surprise that the supermodel, who has a son, Flynn, with Bloom, is trying to stay on the DL — both she and Packer have complicated personal lives. He recently described his as a “disaster.”
The media and hotel magnate, worth around $6 billion, was married to bikini model Jodhi Meares from 1999 until 2002; his second marriage, to model Erica Baxter, ended last September. In May, he was involved in a street brawl with former friend and fellow mogul David Gyngell, reportedly over Packer’s relationship with Kerr.
Also in May, Kerr brushed off reports that the two were an item. “(Packer’s) been a friend for many years,” she told news.com.au. “I’m not looking for anything too serious or to be in a relationship .”
Then, in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald published on July 7, she addressed the relationship again. “(Rumors) happen all the time with me,” Kerr told the newspaper. “It happens to Orlando (too). As long as we both know (the truth), then it doesn’t really matter what people think. ”
In the same interview, speaking of the attention she gets from photographers, she said: “Of course it’s frustrating and especially when I have a day off.”
A rep for Kerr declined to comment. A rep for Packer couldn’t be reached.
their kids would be 'interesting' ...
Marvel has announced it will release another untitled movie on May 4, 2018.
The identity of the superhero film remains a mystery as the studio continues to grow its cinematic universe.
The only other movie dated for May 2018 is the animated comedy “Madagascar 4.”
It recently announced release dates for five more untitled films that Disney will on July 28, 2017 and Nov. 3, 2017; July 6, 2018 and Nov. 2, 2018 and May 3, 2019.
It remains unclear which Marvel titles these release dates pertain to, but in addition to some Marvel Phase Three sequels, possibilities include a “Black Widow” spinoff with Scarlett Johansson and “Black Panther.”
Scott Derrickson‘s “Doctor Strange” remains without a release date, though it is expected to be ready in time for one of Marvel's 2016 slots.
Disney will release Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” on Aug. 1, and the film is on tracking to gross at least $60 million at the domestic box office during its opening weekend.
Who knew so many people want to be killed off by George R. R. Martin?
Martin's wolf sanctuary crowdfunding campaign with Prizeo, through which fans could purchase an in-book death at the hands of the Game of Thrones author for $20,000, has raised more $450,000 — more than double its initial goal. While the two "martyr" slots available were both purchased (one by a Facebook employee), one young fan's touching letter was enough to draw a personal response from the author.
After admitting that he wasn't able to watch "certain bits" of the wildly popular HBO show, Jack added that "a gruesome grizzly death" is all he asks for. Along with the letter, he included £153 ($260) as a donation to the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, the recipient for Martin's crowdfunding campaign.
The boy's heartfelt love for wolves touched Martin, and inspired the author to respond with the following.
Thank you so much for your heartfelt, touching note.
I’ve heard that you donated all your £153 pocket money savings to my Prizeo fundraiser on behalf of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. I cannot tell you how much that moved me. It pleases me no end to know that my novels, and the TV series based on them, have inspired readers as young as yourself to rally to the support of these majestic and too often stigmatized animals
Alas, I cannot promise you a grisly death in THE WIND OF WINTER. Those spots have already been filled by some very generous donors, and there’s a limit to how many people even I can kill.
However, inspired by your example, my friends at Prizeo and I would love to follow your lead with a $10,000 in your name to the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. That’s a wonderful organization that I've heard much about, and they are lucky to count people like you as supporters.
I wish you the best of luck in your future career as a wolf conservationist, and hope that you inspire many others to follow your lead.
While Martin has apparently reached his kill limit for the A Song of Ice and Fire series, Jack must be pretty happy about the $10,000 donation made in his name.
George R.R. Martin: dream destroyer, dream maker.
Tributes have been pouring in for tragic Amy Winehouse, who died from alcohol toxicity three years ago today.
The Rehab singer was aged just 27 when she was found dead on a Saturday afternoon in her Camden flat with two empty bottles of vodka beside her.
At an inquest into her death, a verdict of misadventure was recorded.
The world was shocked by the news of Amy's death.
And three years on and the loss of Amy is still felt among her loyal fan base.
"it's 3 years today since my absolute fave singer ever, Amy Winehouse had passed away. RIP you total babe xxxxx," tweeted @jaiden official.
"Today is 3 years since Amy Winehouse died :( i miss her so much and i still cant believe that shes gone," added @ddlftwinehouse.

Favorite Amy song(s), ONTD?
Less than six weeks before Labor Day, hopes for recovery at the North American summer box office have evaporated. The season is expected to finish down 15 to 20 percent compared with 2013, the worst year-over-year decline in three decades, and revenue will struggle to crack $4 billion, which hasn't happened in eight years. As a result, analysts predict that the full year is facing a deficit of 4 to 5 percent.
Comparisons in North America are tough, considering revenue hit a record $4.75 billion in summer 2013. It didn't help that Fast & Furious 7 was pushed from July to April 2015 following the death of Paul Walker or that Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened in early April. But even bullish observers are grim. "Moviegoing begets moviegoing, and we have lost our momentum," says Rentrak's Paul Dergarabedian. "People aren't seeing trailers and marketing materials. They still want to go to the movies -- they just want to go to really good movies."
Although there have been no Lone Ranger-size debacles, for the first time since 2001 no summer pic will cross $300 million domestically (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction hover near $230 million). May kicked off with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earning $200 million less domestically than 2013's Iron Man 3; by July 20, the divide had swelled to nearly $690 million as revenue topped out at $2.71 billion, down 20 percent compared with the same period last year.
International returns remain strong, making up for some of the damage, but in certain cases they aren't enough. Spider-Man 2 topped out at $706.2 million globally, notably behind the $757.9 million earned by The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012. "I would have liked Amazing Spider-Man 2 to make a lot more money for us than it did, but it made a lot of money for us anyway," Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
X-Men is the only tentpole that has earned more than its predecessor domestically (X-Men: First Class grossed $146.4 million in 2011), contributing to Fox's best summer in years (it is No. 1 in market share). But Paramount's Age of Extinction has grossed far less than previous Transformers movies domestically, though it will be the first 2014 film to hit $1 billion worldwide thanks to $300 million in China. "Young men haven't been as enthusiastic as usual," says analyst Phil Contrino. "Maybe [studios] shouldn't just go after this demo when building their summer tentpoles." Female-fueled properties, including Maleficent and The Fault in Our Stars, have produced some of the summer's biggest success stories.
Also contributing to the malaise is a lack of family product (including no Pixar movie), the allure of TV and myriad ways consumers can view entertainment in their homes. (Laments one studio executive, "I wish I worked at Netflix.")
Filmmaker Jon Favreau agrees that the popularity of television and new technologies are altering viewing habits. "I think times are changing. We have to acknowledge that and not try to chase what used to be," says Favreau, who is currently prepping Jungle Book for Disney. At the same time, he said there will continue to be a worldwide appetite for big spectacle movies based on known brands.
But the Iron Man director is in theaters this summer not with a studio tentpole but with indie hit Chef, which has grossed north of $26 million to date, a coup for Favreau and independent distributor Open Road Films. With Chef, Favreau didn't have to worry about making a film that needed to have the widest possible appeal. "It didn't need to capture every person in every country," he says.
Many medium-size studio movies have underperformed this summer, including Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West and Sony's Cameron Diaz comedy Sex Tape, which opened July 18 to a meager $14.6 million. For the summer to hit $4 billion and finish down only 15 percent, revenue needs to match last year's through August. That puts pressure on Dwayne Johnson's Hercules (July 25), Scarlett Johansson's Lucy (July 25), Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug. 1) and Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Aug. 8). But it's a tall order, considering last summer ended with a bang. "I don't know if we have a major sleeper left this year, other than Guardians," says Dergarabedian.
Still, many believe summer 2015 will restore order with a lineup that includes Avengers: Age of Ultron, Minions and Jurassic World. "I think it's cyclical," says X-Men producer Simon Kinberg."Next summer will be the biggest box-office summer in history, and nobody will be worrying about the business."
One of Hollywood’s hottest action stars will inject a shot of adrenaline into the moribund summer box office this weekend, when “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson’s revenge thriller, hits screens. Distributed by Universal, “Lucy” will unroll across 3,172 theaters this weekend and should shoot up an estimated $36 million. That would be a nice return on a $40 million budget and a sign that audiences don’t always need their on-screen mayhem to arrive pre-branded, pre-merchandised and plucked from venerable comic books or toylines. It’s the rare original film that looks ready to upend the steady stream of same-olds.
Sadly, “Lucy’s” main competition, “Hercules,” is looking less than godly. Paramount and MGM’s $100 million re-imagining of the old Hydra killer is on track to debut to roughly $25 million across 3,600 locations, which would be a scrawny showing given the high cost of the production. Brett Ratner (“Tower Heist”) directs the film, with Dwayne Johnson playing the strongest man on earth. He’s the main selling point, and the likable star can be reliably counted on to turn out his base of fans, but the picture has had difficulty differentiating itself from the glut of sequels and special effects extravaganzas. Though it is rated PG-13, it may still lose teenage ticket-buyers to the R-rated “Lucy.”
“They’re both gunning for the same key demos and ‘Lucy’ seems to be the stronger of the two,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. With the summer box office down 20% from last year, the studios are hoping to reverse the negative momentum and provide enough compelling product to lure people back into the multiplexes.
“Lucy” centers on a woman who unlocks superhuman abilities after being injected with drugs that allow her to access more than the standard 10% of the brain — it’s another 90% that Hollywood, though not science, contends is devoted to general kick-assery. Directed by Luc Besson (“The Professional”), the production has been bolstered by gritty promos and has benefited from Johansson’s gun-toting role in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the top-grossing film of the year in the U.S. If the film works, she could emerge as the successor to Angelina Jolie as the preeminent female action star.
Also hitting theaters this weekend, is Rob Reiner’s romantic comedy, “And So It Goes.” Targeting older adults, the counter-programmer stars Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton and is being produced by Clarius Entertainment. It will roll out on 1,800 theaters and should do between $8 million to $10 million in business.
In limited release, Woody Allen will debut his latest confection, “Magic in the Moonlight” in 17 theater in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, DC. Summer has been good to the nebbish auteur, with “Blue Jasmine” and “Midnight in Paris” making $34.4 million and $56.8 million, respectively. A middling critical reception might make hitting similar numbers more difficult this time, but Allen has his devotees and the picture should do well in Europe. Sony Pictures Classics is distributing the film, having handled the director’s recent hits.
Also of note: “A Most Wanted Man,” the espionage thriller that marks one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final rolls, bows in limited release. Hoffman died of a drug overdose last February. He plays a German intelligence officer in the well-reviewed adaptation of John Le Carre’s novel, which Roadside Attractions will unveil in 350 theaters.
In holdover territory, expect last weekend’s champ “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” to drop into the $20 million range and fight for second or third place with “Hercules.” Universal’s micro-budget horror film, “The Purge: Anarchy” will have a steeper fall from its $29.8 million debut and should scare up around $10 million.
Overseas, “Hercules” will try to capitalize on Johnson’s global star power, as it opens in 19 international markets this weekend, including Russia, the United Kingdom and Australia. “Lucy” will begin its foreign rolling out next week in Australia, New Zealand, Bulgaria and Panama. Between “Lucy” and next weekend’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” maybe the movie business will be able to unlock the other 90% of the audience that hasn’t been showing up.
She found fame when she wrongly assumed paparazzi were taking photos of her - without realising supermodel Karlie Kloss was right behind her.
And now 22-year-old Kara Dudley has spoken out about the photos which have made her a viral sensation.
The brunette beauty was snapped striking her best poses as she left a store in Soho, completely unaware that Karlie was stepping out directly behind her.
Embarrassing? Actually, no, she finds it all hilarious. AS. DO. WE.
"I didn't know what they were doing but I decided to strike a pose anyways because how cool is that!" She tells us.
Kara, who has recently moved to New York to pursue a modelling and acting career (this will surely get her noticed!) said she had followed none other than singer Taylor Swift into the store, hoping to meet her.
After watching her leave, Kara followed closely behind - and on seeing the cameras, assumed they were left over from Taylor's visit - so made the most of the opportunity.
Good on you!
She tells us: "I called all my friends to tell them that I saw Taylor Swift in Soho, thinking that was the only exciting thing that happened that day."
While Taylor's BFF Karlie is seen laughing behind her, Kara didn't have a clue until she got home and saw the Mirror's story online.
She adds: "The next day my friend texted me your article with a photo of me in front of Karlie Kloss. Only then did I realize that the paparazzi wasn't for me!"
We imagine it was a proud moment, once she got over the shock and slight embarrassment.
See the full account of her day here, in her own words:
"I am originally from a small town in Upstate New York and I recently moved to NYC a few months ago to pursue a career in acting and modeling.
"I was just walking around Soho on Monday when I saw a ton of people with cameras outside a store.
"I walked up to a person with a camera and asked who it was for. They said Taylor Swift was inside, so naturally I went in the store to get a peak at her.
"When she left the store, she had photos snapped of her and then got in car and drove away. Moments behind her, I left the store and I was confused when people started flashing cameras when I walked out too.
"I didn't know what they were doing but I decided to strike a pose anyways because how cool is that! I called all my friends to tell them that I saw Taylor Swift in Soho, thinking that was the only exciting thing that happened that day.
"The next day my friend texted me your article with a photo of me in front of Karlie Kloss. Only then did I realized that the paparazzi wasn't for me!
"I spent the entire day cracking up over it with my friends and family only to discover that it was on national and international television."

A$AP Rocky allegedly slapped a female fan during a Philadelphia music festival…and now she’s dragging him into court with a lawsuit. Lisamarie Wade claims the rapper hauled off and smacked her — for no apparent reason — as he made his way through the crowd last year — knocking her to the ground and disorienting her. In her docs, Wade claims the rapper has a long history of bad behavior…including a similar incident two months before the Philly show…in which he allegedly smacked a female fan in Australia.
TMZ broke the story…Wade filed a private criminal complaint…but eventually withdrew it when she couldn’t locate him to serve him with the complaint. Wade’s already making a play for the heartstrings of a potential jury…claiming Rocky’s slap caused a string of ailments which interfere with her ability to “enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother.” Well played, ma’am.
Note: This is not the same woman, he has slapped a few...smfh.
i hope she at least gets a settlement, he's vile.
Feast your compound eyes on this: an exclusive look at an Ant-Man image that Marvel Studios will be sharing this weekend at Comic-Con. The illustration is a piece of pre-production concept art specifically made for San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off Wednesday night. So expect to see the movie heavily showcased on Saturday in Marvel’s always bombastic presentation. It hasn’t been an easy couple of months for Ant-Man. Production was expected to be underway already, but director and co-writer Edgar Wright jaw-droppingly dropped out of the production after eight years of labor on the project.
After some rudderless weeks, Marvel signed Peyton Reed (The Break-Up, Bring It On) to direct the story of a hero who can shrink to tiny sizes while still packing a heavyweight punch. Adam McKay, a writer-director best known for the Anchorman movies, also signed up to rewrite the script by Wright and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block.)
Now the film is set to start shooting in August with the original cast still in place. As this poster makes clear: That’s Paul Rudd taking on the central role of Scott Lang, a thief who, according to the comics, stole the technology behind the shrinking suit from the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. And there’s Michael Douglas, joining the Marvel universe as Pym, a scientist with Tony Stark-levels of ingenuity. He not only builds a miniaturizing mechanism, but also constructs a method of communicating with tiny creatures. (Better to have them on your side than trying to eat you.)
Although Lang only steals the suit to make it easier to lead a life of crime—it’s simple to sneak in and grab other things of value when you are microscopic—he inevitably follows a reluctant hero arc. In the full image below (created by Andy Park from Marvel’s in-house visual development department), we get a look at the suit in action, the two leading men in profile, and a nice close-up of our hero riding bareback on a winged ant.
Have you forgiven Marvel yet for parting ways with Edgar Wright, ONTD? Or are you more focused on the upcoming potentially disappointing Doctor Strange announcement now?
I know the trailer was posted this morning (1,100 comments & counting, DAMN ONTD!), but not the interview

A new official photo of Ben Affleck as Batman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was just released by DC Comics. To celebrate Batman’s 75th anniversary there’s a big Batman montage wall made up of old and new photos. In this case… brand new!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice photographer Clay Enos took the shot above with a Nikon D4, and the end result is completely Photoshop-free! Ben Affleck’s cape and cowl are on display at San Diego Comic-Con… so who knows what other surprises Warner Bros./DC will have for us this weekend!

SDCC: WARNER BROS. SHARES AFFLECK’S BATMAN COWL WITH FANS!!!
Fans worldwide received their first glimpse of Ben Affleck’s costume from “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in May, but this week at Comic-Con International, attendees can get an up-close look at the cape and cowl.
Displayed by DC Entertainment alongside other Batman movie costumes as part of the character’s 75th anniversary celebration, the elements perhaps offer a better idea than the moody promotional photo did of director Zack Snyder’s vision for the Dark Knight. The cape and cowl are indeed black, not the steely gray of The Dark Knight Returns. The rest of the costume, which isn’t part of the exhibit, is said to be gray and black.
Opening May 6, 2016, “Batman v Superman, Dawn of Justice” also stars Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Over recent years Israel has become a great source for LGBT movies that have found an eager worldwide audience. Probably the most successful and prolific filmmaker who has emerged from there is Eyton Fox who along with his writing/producing/life partner Gal Uchovsky could fill half of the slots on this list alone. Reflecting the political unrest in the region many of the movie that have emerged are deep and dark so we have trawled our library at THE GAY UK at looked at as many different Israeli movies as we could find : both big hits and small wonders to give you our very comprehensive choice of our 10 BEST to make you laugh and cry.
Here they are in alphabetical order.
EYES WIDE OPEN
A handsome stranger turns the life of a Hassidic family butcher upside down when they act on their mutual attraction. This beautiful story of how conflicted a modern ultra-orthodox life can be, tells, its story quietly and responsibly without sensationalizing this sensitive issue at all, making it even more powerful and moving. An impressive directing debut from Haim Takabkamn, it gives the best insight into gay Orthodox Jews outside of a documentary that I have ever seen, and is heart wrenchingly wonderful too.
OUT IN THE DARK
This heart string tugging movie of forbidden love from LA based Israeli newbie director/writer Michael Mayer is the story of how being gay just adds yet one more obstacle to living in this troubled region. The convincingly very real love story between an Israeli Jew and a Palestinian Arab who have to make some very tough choices just survive is totally unmissable.
If I had been forced to pick my absolute favorite of all-Israeli gay movies, it would probably be this one. In this remarkable and moving take on 'Romeo & Juliet' director Eyton Fox’s story of a Middle-Eastern tragic romance that crosses the racial divide, will not leave a dry eye in the house. Completely wonderful.
THE INVISIBLE MEN
The only way that handsome young Louie can be openly gay is to leave his home in Ramallah and sneak across the border to Tel Aviv. The trouble is as he is Palestinian he is illegal and so is constantly hunted down by the Israeli authorities who then drop him back home where he could be killed because of his sexuality. This remarkable new award-winning documentary from Israeli filmmaker Yariv Mozer tracks Louie as he goes about his harrowing daily life, which does (thank God) have somewhat of a happy ending.
YOSSI & JAEGAR
Eytan Fox’s multi-award winning drama about a initially hesitant romance that slowly blooms into an old-fashioned style love affair between two soldiers stationed in an Israeli outpost on the Lebanese border. A heartbreaking tearjerker of the finest sort.
P.S. Fox’s later sequel ‘Yossi’ which it’s surprisingly upbeat ending should also be on this list, but I wanted to give other filmmakers a chance too.
