It's been fascinating to watch the MARVEL Cinematic Universe grow and expand these past few years, and now, as CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR just had it's World Premiere in Los Angeles, the first trailer for the next film in the series has arrived. Just-debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live, here's your first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in MARVEL's DOCTOR STRANGE...

The most astute viewers have noticed something in the marketing of MARVEL's CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (get tickets via Fandango) over the past few months... the teams were lopsided. Today that changed as the latest trailer for the next entry into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe hit the web... with a certain character "on loan" from SONY included in the mix. Ending much speculation, Tom Holland's first appearance as Spider-man (in perhaps his most comic-accurate costume ever) is revealed in this new clip, with Tony Stark summoning "Underoos" to round-out Team Iron Man. May 6th is looking real good right about now...

It probably doesn't matter if you're siding with CAPTAIN AMERICA or IRON MAN when CIVIL WAR hits theaters later this Spring, because when it comes to toys, you're probably gonna want your entire AVENGERS collection to be complete... even in spud-tastic form. The latest superheroes to make the jump from the printed page to the MARVEL Cinematic Universe and then into starch-inspired toy form are BLACK WIDOW, the FALCON and HAWKEYE, all reimagined as PopTaters from PPW Toys, and soon to be available at Entertainment Earth. Using the iconic Mr. Potato Head styling (under license from Hasbro), these new 'taters are ready for action! 

Pop some Peaches and Herb into the cassette deck and get ready for another adventure - MARVEL Studios has begun principal photography on GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2 at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Set to arrive in U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017, MARVEL's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn ("Guardians of the Galaxy," "Slither"), and marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World") as Peter Quill/Star-Lord;  Zoe Saldana ("Star Trek Into Darkness") as Gamora; Dave Bautista ("Spectre") as Drax; Vin Diesel ("Furious 7") as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper ("Joy," "American Sniper") as the voice of Rocket;  Michael Rooker ("Days of Thunder," "Mallrats") as Yondu; Karen Gillan ("The Big Short") as Nebula; and Sean Gunn ("Gilmore Girls") as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff ("Oldboy"), Elizabeth Debicki ("The Great Gatsby," "Everest"), Chris Sullivan ("The Knick," "The Drop") and Kurt Russell ("The Hateful Eight"). More details from the official announcement below...

Netflix Stream TeamAt the TCA Winter Press Tour in Pasadena last month, I sat like a fly on the wall as the cast and crew of MARVEL's DAREDEVIL spilled some details (and video) of what's yet to come in Season Two of the Netflix Original Series. If 2016 is the year of the superhero shakedown, DAREDEVIL is certainly entering the ring with fists flying. We already have Captain America and Iron Man going at it in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and on the other side of the aisle, DC's BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. With the just-released trailer for DAREDEVIL Season Two, we may well be looking at DAREDEVIL v PUNISHER: THE BATTLE FOR HELL'S KITCHEN. Having seen many play The Punisher (one of my favorite heroes) over the years, Jon Bernthal may be the best yet. Check this out (not for kids):

Netflix Stream TeamI sometimes have a hard time explaining to people what exactly it is that I do - particularly because I do a lot of different things for a lot of different people. The connecting thread between them is that everything is linked by entertainment and pop culture. I've often said that I don't personally consider myself to be a "journalist" nor a "blogger," but a "writer" that sits somewhere in the space between those two things - even though the clients and partners that I work with will often deem me to be one or the other... titles I'll happily accept from others, depending on the assignment. But I've also been an actor, I'm directing again, and that's really just the tip of the iceberg for a time where to be involved in entertainment, you really have to be everything - and in my case, that means being a one-man army, a largely self-sufficient "Rock & Roll Gangster" (the definition of which varies) with "a particular set of skills, acquired over a very long career" - just like Liam Neeson in TAKEN. Sometimes, the strangest thing is that I feel like I'm living on two planes of reality - and those largely different elements are interweaving in an increasingly swift manner, with perhaps no more dramatic example than my most recent trip to Los Angeles. On a Sunday afternoon I'm hanging with the cast of FULLER HOUSE, and on Monday morning I'm 2000 miles away, vacuuming the play area with a three-year-old... working my most rewarding gig as an at-home dad. That's just what happened with my first on-the-road (and in-the-air) mission as a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam.
