Riz Ahmed “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has joined the “Venom” film in an undisclosed role.

The film will take place in the same world as Tom Holland’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” but will not be connected to the MCU.

Tom Hardy (“Dunkirk”) has already signed on to the film. Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) will direct.


Here it is! The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” teaser trailer!

The highly anticipated Marvel film sees the return of Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and a lot more. The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, James Spader and a host of others.

Obviously potential spoilers here. Den of Geek supposedly has the inside scoop for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Guardians of the Galaxy”. According to the site, Benicio Del Toro will be playing the Collector, Lee Pace will be playing Ronan the Accuser and Karen Gillian will be playing Nebula, the grand-daughter of Thanos in the comics.

Nothing has been officially confirmed at this point, but the film also stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly.

Vin Diesel already starred in “Fast and Furious 6” and is returning to the world of Riddick with “Riddick”. But could he also join the Marvel film universe? Diesel tweeted that he was taking a meeting with Marvel, but didn’t know what for. Now before “The Avengers” came out from Joss Whedon, there were rumors that Diesel would play Vision. Then there were rumors he’d play Vision in Edgar Wright’s “Ant-Man”. But, and this might be wishful thinking, wouldn’t it be cool if he played Kingpin in a DareDevil remake?

Armie Hammer is…Ant-Man?

Well…if you believe Armie Hammer himself, the answer is no. But rumors are flying after he was spotted on the set of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. Rumors then started that he had visited the set with Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”), who is of course directing the Marvel film. But Hammer denied even knowing who Wright was and said he visited the set to see a friend. Sounds…suspicious. Anyway, the other big rumor was that Nathan Fillion was up for the role, though he’s repeatedly denied that. If it was one of these two actors, who would you prefer? Hammer can next be seen in “The Lone Ranger” with Johnny Depp.

Tony Stark to sell HTC phones?

Not exactly. But Robert Downey Jr. will be. RDJ signed a $12 million contract to appear in upcoming ads for HTC. One would think that Iron Man would fit selling the HTC One, but plans are for RDJ to appear as himself. RDJ also signed a contract with Disney/Marvel to appear in “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3”. He earned $50 million from “The Avengers”.

So some good news and possible bad news for Iron Man fans. “Iron Man 3” has earned more than a billion dollars worldwide already. But Robert Downey Jr. was in the middle of negotiations with Disney/Marvel to return as Tony Stark. Now comes news that he has a deal in place that will ensure his return in “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3”. But back before IM3 came out Gwyneth Paltrow said she wasn’t sure there would be another stand alone Iron Man film. This news seems to support that cause as the contract is only for the Avengers sequels, not another Iron Man film. Are you OK with “Iron Man 3” from Shane Black being the send off to Tony’s stand alone films?

Del Toro not playing Thanos?

Here’s another surprise. Benicio Del Toro reportedly is not playing Thanos in “Guardians of the Galaxy”. Instead the latest reports have him playing the Collector, an immortal who collects powerful objects and beings, including trying to “collect” the Avengers in the comics. Hm, he seems like a  pretty…silly villain from the outside looking in. But whoever he is playing he’s joining the likes of Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, John C. Reilly and more.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” is already one of the more intriguing films on the horizon. It stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Lee Pace as an unspecified villain, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly. Now comes news that Benicio Del Toro is joining the cast in an unspecified lead role with options for future films in the Marvel cinematic universe.  Who could he be playing? Rumors are circling that he could be Thanos. Or Dr. Strange. Who do you think he’s playing?
