Recently Mark Ruffalo hinted that Marvel's considering a Hulk solo movie, but the actor doesn't think it should be 'Planet Hulk'.

Ruffalo told MTV on 6-30-14 he thinks that 2006 Marvel comic book story is a bit TOO much Hulk and not enough Bruce Banner.

"'Planet Hulk?' I don't think that's the way to go yet. I think you need more Banner. The whole thing is just him as Hulk, on a planet, fighting other gladiators." - Mark Ruffalo

There was one big question when +20th Century Fox hired Josh Trank to helm the reboot of its 'Fantastic Four' franchise - Would the movie have a similar look and feel of Trank's breakthrough hit - 2012's 'Chronicle'?

Well, in a new interview Fox exec Emma Watts hinted that, yes, the new FF movie might utilize the same style as 'Chronicle'.

Watts said Trank has his own, original vision for the superhero movie, which is targeted for a June 19, 2015 release. When asked if the FF reboot would have  the "found footage" style Trank used in 2012's 'Chronicle', Watts replied -

"It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it. It is a really interesting young cast [Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell], and he is the magnet that's brought them all together." - Emma Watts, 20th Century Fox

Really not much to explain here - YouTuber The Unusual Suspect edited footage from the Star Wars original trilogy as if it were a Marvel Studios movie. The result is both funny and badass.

It's amazing how a change in the soundtrack can drastically alter the feel of a movie. This had me chuckling every time I watched.

Take a couple of minutes to relive the thrill you got when you first saw the trailer to a movie simply called 'Batman'.

I vividly recall the mania surrounding the release of this film on June 23, 1989, and I like to re-watch it on a regular basis. Really, it's so much fun on so many levels - the acting, the costumes, the sets, Jack Nicholson...what more do ya need?
