When Edgar Wright signed up to adapt Marvel's Ant-Man, he produced some test footage to visualise his take on Ant-Man's unique, offbeat powers. The footage screened at San Diego Comic Con to great acclaim and then promptly vanished.
Despite little progress being made on the production, the test footage has resurfaced during a London media event, and some sneaky devil has captured it on camera.
One of the stranger films to earn a cult status over the years has been the 1990s movie of Todd McFarlane's infamous SPAWN. Butchered by critics when it first came out, the film nevertheless found an audience which went on to enjoy it for years afterwards. Yes, it's very camp indeed and the effects haven't dated all that well, but there's something about it that kept people watching.
Both the teaser and trailer were limiting with its plot details for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. But frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator, fan boy favourite and, of course, Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer tells Total Film that most of the details to the new film are being kept a mystery.
After the underwhelming (and cheap, it looked cheap, right?) Kick-Ass 2 teaser trailer, the marketing campaign makes a fierce comeback with these striking new character posters.
Bryan Singer, always a bit of a tease, has once again taken to Twitter to post some tantalising images. This time we see a plain wall, plastered in the headshots of his cast, or at least some of the cast. On the wall we see a lot of familiar and expected faces, along with some new and/or unexpected ones.
Well, now that was fast.
MTV are reporting that Shailene Woodley has already wrapped up her work as Mary Jane Watson on Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They go on to say that she already ditched the red hair and is starting work on her next role, Neil Burger's Divergent.

Former WWE star Dave Bautista has joined Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy in the role of Drax The Destroyer, the green, hulking head-breaker of Marvel's strangest super-team.
Pepper Potts may not be as famous as Lois Lane or Mary Jane Watson, but she is every bit as important as Iron Man's better half. Her role was severely reduced in Iron Man 2 (one of many problems with that film) and while her scenes in The Avengers were strong, they were brief. It seems Marvel have every intention of correcting this mistake for Iron Man 3, not only boosting Pepper's screen time, but also her importance to the story.

Some rather sweet new images have been released from the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They show Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley as they film their first scene together.
I love Kick-Ass.It was a lively, lightly subversive slice of extreme superhero action, It was also an incredibly well made action movie; each action scene was handled with focus and hard-driving energy. Matthew Vaughn made what often felt like a punk rock superhero movie.
