  • Interview: Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo

    Movie Feature | Matt | 25th April 2012

    Another day in the run up to Avengers Assemble being released in cinemas, another opportunity for me to milk my interviews with the cast. This time it’s Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo, who played Thor and the Hulk respectively. Coincidentally, it turns out that they do NOT like being addressed as either ‘Thor’ or ‘Hulk’ when being asked a question. Lesson learned.

  • The story of Iron Man's receding hairline: a photo journal

    Movie Feature | Ali | 24th April 2012

    Have you ever noticed that Iron Man has a receding hairline? Even though he's just a metallic exo-skeleton? You'd have thought Tony Stark would have given his superhero alter-ego a virile head of robo-hair.

  • Interview: Tom Hiddleston

    Movie Feature | Matt | 24th April 2012

    Following yesterday’s interview with Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner, my ongoing Avengers boast-fest continues with Tom Hiddleston, star villain of the Marvel cineverse and thoroughly nice chap.

  • Interview: Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner

    Movie Feature | Matt | 23rd April 2012

    Somehow, thanks to what I can only presume was some oversight in the security details for the cast of Avengers Assemble, I was allowed within dry-humping distance of the stars to ask them some questions about the film. I’ll be posting them all over the next few days, but firstly, here’s my interview with Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner. Thank god I remembered to muffle my ankle bracelet that morning.

  • Six best moments at the Avengers Assemble press conference

    Movie Feature | Matt | 22nd April 2012

    JOURNALISTS ASSEMBLE! I had the pleasure of joining half of the media in the UK in attending the biggest press conference ever seen in Britain. Probably. It was pretty big. At one point there was a biscuit shortage.

  • Avengers Assemble

    Movie Review | Matt | 20th April 2012

    It's only been four years since Samuel L Jackson teased his way into the end of Tony Stark's movie like a fan-wetting afterthought, but it seems like anticipation for The Avengers has been setting the Internet a-buzz for far longer. Perhaps this is because, since the comic-book genre gained credibility again, we've all been waiting for the ultimate superhero crossover movie. With Avengers Assemble, we get just that - four superhero leads meeting up for one mega-blockbuster movie in a way that has never been seen before. As a result, it is the ultimate summer event movie. It also happens to be Marvel's masterpiece.

  • This is my favourite screen grab from The Avengers so far

  • Interview with Marvel Studios producer Kevin Feige

    Movie Feature | Matt | 5th April 2012

    As one of Marvel Studios’ head honchos, Kevin Feige has overseen the production of the X-Men films, the Spider-Man films and pretty much every other Marvel movie released in the last 10 years or so (Shhh! This also includes Daredevil). And now, with The Avengers soon to assemble on the big screen, I was given some time to ask the big guy about the cinematic superhero supergroup.

  • Saturday morning reader submission: The Nicolas Cage Avengers

    Movie News | Ali, Matheus Candido | 31st March 2012

    I wouldn't normally do this, but I had an email from a reader in Brazil this morning containing a picture I couldn't resist sharing with you.

  • The original Avengers assemble!

    Movie Feature | Matt | 8th March 2012

    Body paint instead of CGI! Cardboard sets instead of exploding skyscrapers! David Hasselhoff instead of Samuel L Jackson! What would the Avengers look like if Marvel had decided to assemble their hero boyband when they first had the chance?
