Luke Bracey has some Keanu Reeves-sized shoes to fill.
Remember how, after The Avengers became a massive hit that seemingly everyone loved, there was a long wait where we all wondered if Joss Whedon would drop the mike and walk off stage rather than write and direct the sequel?
Well we might be spared such a purgatorial wait between Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, because a screenwriter with the inside scoop at Marvel Studios may have just offhandedly revealed Whedon's involvement in the third installment of this mega-franchise.
An international trailer for Noah sells the film not so much as the story of Noah's Ark, but as an effects-driven historical action movie starring Russell Crowe, a kind of Old Testament Gladiator.
By now, we know that major next-generation video game consoles rarely arrive on the marketplace alone; whenever a new Playstation hits shelves, there's an XBox to answer it, beefing up hype for both.
This 21st Century trend has its basis back in the 20th, when Sega and Nintendo first went head to head. The true story of the rivalry between these video game companies is getting a movie in Console Wars.
And Console Wars is getting a pair of writer-directors in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Just over two months out from the theatrical release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and fans of the 2012 reboot already have to carefully choose whether or not to watch every nugget of new promotion.
Why? Because at this point, the Sony hype-machine is showing off a whole lot of Marc Webb's sequel, covering a whole lot of action beats if not actual mega-spoilers.
A brand new international trailer clocking in at over three minutes, for example, involves no shortage of web-slinging and battle between Spidey and Electro.
The Constantine pilot has found an actor to play the lead, a comic book character you might recognize as the Hellblazer, DC's resident supernatural sleuth with an ear for a wisecrack and lungs full of tar.
And hey, this actor, Matt Ryan, will sound a whole lot more like his comic book counterpart than Keanu Reeves.
Superheroes are notorious for not staying dead.
So in a way, it's sort of fitting that the dessicated, zombielike fist of Heroes is smashing up through the ground as the series hauls its ass out of the grave.
NBC is bringing back its erstwhile superhero series for a thirteen-episode miniseries airing in 2015.
A TV spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier piles on action and seriousness, showing off plenty of new footage from the sequel while appearing to reveal a mega-spoiler.
A trio of clips from Need for Speed find Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, and Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi partaking in high-velocity zigging, zagging, and barreling ahead.
Almost as importantly, however, one of these clips also belongs to Michael Keaton as the action-adventure's delightfully over the top Greek chorus.
