Top 15 Must See Films of 2015

We list below the top 15 must see films of 2015, the most expected movies arriving this year, as well as those already launched and that have had their share of glory and immense revenues in the US and all around the world!

It is 2015 and the Oscar fever is long gone! Birdman and Boyhood were amazing, and we can discuss them all day. But viewers are getting ready for the summertime movie season, which begins earlier every year. So, it is an ideal period to list down the must see movies of 2015 (and a few discounts to the non-blockbuster ones).

So without further ado, here are our 15 Must See Films of 2015.

1. Kingsman: The Secret Service (Feb 13, 2015)

Kingsman The Secret Service must see films of 2015

Do not let either its Feb launch or poor movie trailer deceive you, Kingsman: The Secret Service has a lot going for it due to the skills both at the front of or behind the camera. From the director of Layer Cake, Matthew Vaughn, and a long time scripting co-writer Jane Goldman, arrives the next venture from a cooperation that contains Kick-Ass, Stardust and X-Men: First Class. It is even depending on another comic book base, now from the endless “big idea” author that is Mark Millar.

Nevertheless, there is more to Kingsman than the behind-the-scenes skills: at the front side of the filming camera, fans will see Colin Firth in a part he always seemed like an ideal fit for, an English undercover agent known as Harry Hart. While being unencumbered by series limitations, this movie is about some group of old guys that also has Michael Caine in it, an “M” style part and Samuel L. Jackson as the bad guy.

The movie has too much prospective to not be watched from start to finish and see if there is another invisible character to appear from nowhere, like this innovative team’s last two comic films.

2. It Follows (Mar 13, 2015)

It Follows

We all have that same dream: something other that is not an individual or something known – an It – follows you. And for Robert David Mitchell’s second launch, It Follows, we already know exactly what this something is: the best horror movie in decades.

It Follows is a wonderful throwback to the concept and primordial young fear of David Carpenter’s best 70’s and ’80s movies, as well as an incredibly unique nightmarescape in his own right. When a girl named Jay (played by Maika Monroe) has a partner she should have avoided in the first place, she is harshly penalized with a intimately passed on curse: It will follow the girl wherever she goes until the thing has her under total power, and It will then eat her entirely. This is a terrifying idea followed completely in this distressing must-see film.

3. Furious 7 (Apr 3, 2015)

fast-and-furious-7-

Since last year, Fast and Furious 7 was one of the most expected movies of 2014 until the terrible accident of Paul Walker. Vin Diesel now might be the franchise’s US muscle car symbol, but Walker was the motor that operated it through its biggest levels (mainly Fast Five). Today, Fast and Furious 7 appears as an honor to the significantly missed superstar, and one last glory for the whole unchanged group.

Plus, movie director James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious) has taken over this franchise’s control for his first vacation outside of his horror category in nearly ten years. It is nice to see someone with so many skills, at least in an unapologetic pulp, go outside the comfort zone. Toss in a real launch of Jason Statham as a large, mean heavy – and hopefully the first great one in seven movies – and we are all screaming “shotgun” when we see his ride.

4. Ex Machina (Apr 10, 2015)

Ex Machina

Science stories writers have often imagined about the idea of artificial intelligence. In what is likely the best Sci-Fi movie of the year, writer and director Alex Garland gladly worries about AI. It is not that he does not have an apocalyptic perspective of sentient automatic beings; he just prefers them better than all of humans.

Thus, get into Ex Machina’s atmosphere: a completely dangerous con activity that gets under your skin as the audience does not know if the people in it are going through a rough analyze or if the viewers are. Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is immediately welcomed to the national residence of a CEO (Oscar Isaac) to analyze the AI of a robot known as Ava (Alicia Vikander). He quickly finds out that he could be the real guinea pig in this silently hypnotic journey into insanity.

5. Clouds of Sils Maria (Apr 10, 2015)

Clouds of Sils Maria

Conceivably placing itself as a present day All About Eve, the Clouds of Sils Maria seems to be a fanged and very-aware deconstruction of the part of womanliness and sex during these days.

Starring three generations of females in the city of dreams – Kristen Stewart, Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz – Clouds is primarily about Binoche’s Maria Enders, a popular actress who is requested to perform the role which made her popular a couple of decades ago when she played an attractive little lady who forced her manager to suicide.

Except now, she is requested to play the manager who commits suicide, and simpering younger Jo-Ann Ellis (Chloe Moretz) is a young girl. Maria believes that, if she goes to the Europe city of Sils Maria, she will be able to take the indignation. Little she knows that her associate (Stewart) has more in her purse than meets the eye. The irony of this assumption alone burns to the core.

6. Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015)

Avengers Age of Ultron

Surely intended to be the biggest film of 2015, Avengers: Age of Ultron starts the summer film season of 2015 with an image that a lot of action lovers have been wishing for since May 2012. With Joss Whedon at its helm, the movie might actually be up to its hype! Choosing the tail end of the combined scenario that was “Phase Two” (which stored its top two stories for last), Avengers: Age of Ultron investigates what this super team does when it gets a little too satisfied during the post-SHIELD period.

In a story development that can do Sam Raimi extremely pleased, the characters are not sure what they want to do for a full-time job, so they make an A.I to eradicate the crime for them: we are talking here about Ultron (played by James Spader).

When Ultron chooses to take over the globe and destroy us all with goodness in a story that Whedon guarantees that it is a “little” apocalyptic, the characters are all examined through powerful tests.

7. Mad Max: Fury Road (May 15, 2015)

Mad Max Road Fury

It has been a lengthy and intense road to another film featuring Max Rockatansky reaching the big screen. Even the real superstar has been modified from the questionable Mel Gibson to the more box office successful Tom Hardy, who has the advantage of a showbiz industry peak, almost as big as an already amazing variety of skills. But most of these mean that Mad Max: Fury Road simply looks awesome.

If you have seen its Comic-Con movie trailer, then you know that it quickly created the biggest splash of all movie sections in San Diego in 2015. George Miller is back to his Outback perspective that a thousand movies have tried to copy; yet once again, he shows that no one can look for elegance in a dry, lonely road in a movie like he can. Describing this film as a two-hour chase sequence, Miller’s come back to old school camera field will certainly be getting the action enthusiasts in complete pursuit of the scenario.

8. Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015)

Tomorrowland

All the tricks of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, which was initially planned for a 2014 launch, are still hardly known. However, this is an unavoidable must-see occasion. The movie director of Ratatouille, The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol is coming back to the big screen with a movie that he co-wrote with Lost’s Damon Lindelof. In a sci-fi experience that changes time and space, George Clooney and Britt Robertson go to another level of existence known basically as “Tomorrowland.” It is here that their activities can have an effect on the world around them, a reality which also seems to have Kathryn Hahn, Hugh Laurie and Judy Greer. Surrounded in secrets, Tomorrowland calls to have its mysteries fined out.

9. Entourage (Jun 3, 2015)

Entourage

The guys are lastly coming back in the lengthy big screen version of Entourage, and we can say that is great to see them again. Oh sure, it is also awesome to see a movie with E, Turtle, Vinnie Chase and Johnny Drama. But if we are being truly sincere, it could just be an Ari Film. Regardless of what, however, an Entourage movie is welcomed since it must repair that awful last year. And with Entourage writer Doug Ellis guiding and co-writing the movie, he will know that this is the best multi-media crossover chance since Sex and the City got its own film. Let us just watch how E and Sloan are going gladly together.

10. Jurassic World (Jun 12, 2015)

Jurassic World

Reboots are generally a challenging business. Basically trying to rebuild the excitement of a confirmed traditional movie with few of those unique components, it has to entice old fans while getting new ones. Increase that task by a million when trying to restore the magnificence and interest of Steven Spielberg’s last dinosaurs film, Jurassic Park in 1993. But there is still a purpose to be positive beyond Spielberg putting his name as the executive producer of the movie. To begin with, Colin Trevorrow, the hugely acclaimed director of Safety: Not Guaranteed, is leading the production. Secondly, the action occurs on an Isla Nublar (the isle from the first film) that has become an effective theme park.

Providing the opportunity for dinosaurs to split the visitors like a mad Mickey Mouse robot represents the fascination of the audience into filming concept parks with monsters everywhere. Jurassic World also features a younger cast, such as Jake Johnson, Bryce Dallas Howard or Chris Pratt in post-Guardians of the Galaxy celebrity shine. Like a T-Rex in the visitor’s centers, you are just going to have to chew the scenes.

11. Inside Out (Jun 19, 2015)

Inside Out

It seems so agonizing to confess the truth: the nearest Pixar film is almost a year away. With the wait for The Good Dinosaur getting it out of the 2014 line-up, now we have remained with a two-year hole between last year’s Monsters University and now Inside Out. Nevertheless, for those worrying that Pixar is missing its aspirations, Inside Out’s assumption alone guarantees the most successful Hollywood-produced cartoon attempt in many years.

Lead by one of Pixar’s unique minds when it comes to animation, Peter Docter (Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Up, Wall-E), it has a great story which has been scripted by Michael Arndt (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Toy Story 3). Inside Out gets big by coming into the tiniest, most complicated place imaginable: the mind of a little girl.

When Riley is compelled to go from Minnesota to San Francisco, a mix of new feelings steams to the surface of her thoughts, affecting every activity in real life. These consist of the feelings of Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). A story that basically will take place inside of a child’s thoughts, the next Pixar venture is ambitiously designed to describe from a new viewpoint why people’s feelings act in the way that they do.

 

12. Terminator: Genisys (Jul 1, 2015)

Terminator Genisys

Terminator: Genysis, besides bringing to the spell-check experts the most severe headaches, could be the first Terminator since 1991 that is worth watching. To begin with, the reboot/quasi-sequel has a cast very smartly chosen, from Jerr Clarke in the role of John Connor, the Messiah of all humankind, to Jai Courtney playing the new Kyle Reese. But most fascinating is Matt Smith in a secret part that has yet to be exposed, though we think it will be chillingly cool in an artificial kind of way.

And to help lead the casting is Alan Taylor who has proven his skills in previous times for managing well huge projects, whether it was the HBO’s Game of Thrones, Rome or Boardwalk Empire. His first movie returning to the basics, Thor: The Dark World, could stop the filming for Terminator, but the cast is an ideal proof that this film could be close to his previous work.

 

13. Ant-Man (Jul 17, 2015)

Ant-Man

One of the most expected summer time films of this year is also already causing the greatest frustrations. Because no matter how you put it, the point that we are not seeing Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man represents an everlasting pity given the dork author’s completely exclusive design, in addition to several years of film build-up. Still, the Marvel Studios’ movies for next season cannot be considered as a blockbusters and fascination for the public.

Peyton Reed has created amazingly and wonderful movies before (Down with Love, Bring It On), and it will definitely be a big shock if this becomes a great achievement. Also, with a cast that has Michael Douglas, David Rudd and Corey Stoll, this image still has enough skills on board to let its fans keep live their fire of wish. Marvel Studios just created a film about a walking tree and a talking raccoon, the greatest hit of the summer.

14. Mission: Impossible 5 (Jul 31, 2015)

Mission Impossible 5

The durability of the Mission: Impossible brand is that each sequel is a new beginning. Whether this present venture is a fail or success, the next movie is a chance to begin from the zero. While that was an advantage after smaller initiatives like John Woo’s Mission: Impossible 2 (2000) or J.J. Abrams’ Mission: Impossible 3 (2006), it is a pity after Brad Bird’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Nevertheless, just as Bird re-wrapped this sequence into a Xmas Day occasion in 2011, there is enough left for Christopher McQuarrie to create his own signature on the IMF film in his second attempt with Tom Cruise after his Jack Reacher. This way of testing in a period where scripts in all other sequences are required to sustain constancy for what it was before make the new Mission: Impossible absolutely bold in its big display of never-ending action.

15. Black Mass (Sep 18, 2015)

Black Mass

Whitey Bulger is among the most discussed mobster of the last years. The Boston criminal boss that became a rat for FBI – until these feds tried to get rid of their rodent – has represented an inspiration for big figures from The Departed to The Town. Bulger also was the topic of a not-so-fantastical film in 2015, Whitey vs. the United States of America

Now, the show biz industry wants to come back to this diseased well from the center of Dorchester and a Southie, and we are expecting it is the role that Johnny Depp for his career, because the assumption sounds too good for the film to be avoided. With Depp being a very convincing Bulger from mobster to fugitive, it is a luscious aspect that should get him back in the spotlight, as he was in Pirates of the Caribbean.

Possible Hidden Meanings Behind the ‘Game of Thrones’ Tragic Season Finale

‘Game of Thrones’ concludes its fifth season with an epic season finale drenched in blood and destruction. If you thought the scene in which the female wildling ends up being eaten by Wight children is brutal, you’re in for a shocker.

*SPOILER ALERT* DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT UP WITH THE LATEST EPISODE OF GAME OF THRONES. 

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

Many upsetting things happened in this season ender. For starters, Stannis’s world crumbled before his eyes: half of his army deserted, his wife hanged herself, and Melisandre abandoned him. In the end, he also falls (presumably) at the hands of Brienne of Tarth. In the meanwhile, Reek (former Theon) and Sansa jump over the walls of Winterfell to escape the cruel Ramsay Bolton, but we know not whether they made it to safety or not. Myrcella Baratheon is poisoned (and dies), and Aria claims another life that was not hers to take (that of Meryn Trant).

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

These scenes were cruel, indeed, but one of the highlights of the episode was undoubtedly Cersei’s walk of shame. I honestly don’t like the woman, but I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her as her dignity and pride were torn from her. And no, this wasn’t even the worst part. The ‘Game of Thrones’ fandom (the non-reading kind, at least) went into an uproar in the final minutes, in which Jon Snow is brutally stabbed in the name of the watch.

But is Jon Snow truly dead?

To answer this question, we have to think about all the characters in Game of Thrones that actually died (for good). Of course, there was Ned Stark, whose head was chopped off clean, but what about Jaqen H’ghar, who presumably dies in this very episode? Aria starts crying one moment, and next thing you know, Jaqen is standing behind her. What about “The Mountain” Clegane. He died too, or at least partly, but he returns now as the strongest addition to the king’s guard.

Other examples come to mind, mere cliff-hangers in which the author chooses not to unravel a character’s fate: we were led to believe that Tyrion drowned in the water where the stone-men lived, but he was saved. And so on and so forth.

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

The idea is that many important characters weren’t killed off for good, and Jon’s death might be just another stunt pulled by Martin to excite his fans. Or at least that’s what we hope. Because we’re at the end of the book, and the season, all we can do is speculate. The good news is that the books (and certain episodes) hold deep meaning and might hint towards a possible resurrection of Jon Snow. 

We already know that animated corpses are a possibility, and there was also another priest in the Seven Kingdoms, besides Melisandre, who can perform resurrections (Thoros of Myr). If you are a book reader, the mystery behind Jon Snow’s death is probably something that boggled your mind for a very long time. Since his untimely demise was revealed several years before the episode, there has been plenty of time for fans to build up theories. Let’s take a look at some of the most plausible ones :

The Lord of Light, Resurrections and the Prophesied Hero

I have to admit, this is the theory that I find most plausible, mostly because it is also supported by Melisandre’s arrival to Castle Black at the end of the episode. The Shadowbinder’s mission is to find the one true hero, Azor Ahai, who will be reborn to ‘fight the coming darkness’. Melisandre believes that Stannis is that hero, or at least she thought he was until she decided to abandon him, but there are strong hints in the book that make Jon Snow a better candidate for the role.

tumblr_n7j9eiHjI41qccs10o2_500

There will come a day after a long summer when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. In this dread hour a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him.

First of all, after the “Hardhome” episode he’s established himself as the strongest antagonist to the White Walkers. It wouldn’t really make sense to kill him now.  Secondly, Melisandre mentions the connection between Jon Snow and the Azor Ahai several times:

“I pray for a glimpse of Azor Ahai, and R’hllor shows me only Snow.” 

and

“Now he was a man, now a wolf,  now a man again.” (we will explain this later on).

Maybe Melisandre finally realized that Jon Snow is the real Azor Ahai, predicted that he will be betrayed by his comrades, and rushed to the Wall resurrect him. Another fact that supports this theory is the description of Azor Ahai’s arrival to the world: amidst salt and smoke. In the book, Snow’s wounds are described as “smoking”, and the salt can be none other than Olly’s remorseful tears as he delivers the final blow.

Warging and the Direwolfs of the Stark House

As you may already know, each Stark child has a direwolf, even the bastard Jon Snow. You may also recall that Bran, the crippled son of the Stark house, awakens the powers of warging. Another character who mainly survives due to his warking abilities is a wildling (Orell in the series, Varamyr in the books) who mentions Jon Snow’s infinite potential for ‘changing skins’.

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

(Varamyr) had known what Snow was the moment he saw that great white direwolf stalking silent at his side. One skinchanger can always sense another. The gift was strong in Snow, but the youth was untaught, still fighting his nature when he should have gloried in it.

This warging theory believes that Jon Snow must have awakened his abilities in the midst of the trauma, because during his ‘final moments’ he thinks about Ghost, and he no longer feels the pain. Could it be possible that his soul entered Ghost’s body? Another hint of this would be the way that the scene ended. “He never felt the fourth knife. Only the cold…” This suggests that Jon simply slipped into unconsciousness.

Beyond this, there are no episodes which might imply that Jon is actually dead. Once again, Martin ends the chapter with a nail-biting cliff-hanger that leaves fans with nothing but hope.

Jon-Snow-and-Ghost-Season-4-jon-snow-37042220-2100-1181

Will Jon Become a White Walker?

Another theory says that Jon might be resurrected by the White Walker King, who took a keen interest in him after his fancy little stunt (shattering one of his commanders with Valyrian steel). This, extremely detailed theory, presumes that Jon will join forces with the White Walkers and maybe resurrect the ice or stone dragons to fight against fire (hence, a Song of Ice and Fire).

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

R.R. Martin Hints Towards his Survival

When asked in an interview why he killed Jon Snow, Martin simply replies “So, you think he’s dead?”. Although not entirely clear, it seems that the author might have more things in store for the protagonist on the wall.

Kit Harington Isn’t Coming Back for the Next Season

Regardless of whether Jon survives or not, one thing is certain: Kit isn’t coming back for the following season. In an Interview with Ew, Jon revealed that he will not be joining the cast in season 6 of Game of Thrones:

This is my understanding of it. I had a sit-down with Dan and David, we did the Tony Soprano walk [letting an actor know they’re being whacked]. And they said, “Look, you’re gone, it’s done.” And as far as the salary thing goes, that angered me when that story came out. I don’t know where it came from, but it was inaccurate in many ways. It’s going to put questions into your head and into fans’ heads that things are not what they are. Quite honestly, I have never been told the future of things in this show, but this is the one time I have. They sat me down and said, “This is how it is.” If anything in the future isnot like that, then I don’t know about it – it’s only in David and Dan and George’s heads. But I’ve been told I’m dead. I’m dead. I’m not coming back next season. So that’s all I can tell you, really.

So there you have it. All the facts brought together. 

In all fairness, it seems that the newly appointed Lord and Commander received quite a lot of attention just to die pathetically (as did Stannis, with whom’s death I am not completely satisfied either). He is one of the few characters in Game of Thrones who has a good heart, and the only one with the power to fight back the walkers.

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 10

Although these theories give us hope, there is also the possibility that the author simply killed off the character, in yet another display of cruelty.

What is your theory about Jon Snow’s death? We’d love to hear your opinions.

The Top Five Sports Movies of All Time

When it comes to movies, there is nothing like a great tear-jerker but when that tear-jerker is tinged with a sense of victory, it quickly becomes one of the all-time best movies, no matter what the genre. Now add sports into the mix and you have a blockbuster. There is just something about a victorious hero or heroine that overcomes all odds that touches the hearts of moviegoers and remains there forever. Here are the top five sports movies of all time.

1) Rocky

Okay, so it may not be your personal favorite but based on box office sales and the number of sequels, Rocky will surely be at least in the top 10 for years to come. Still shown on satellite networks around the world, this story is the epitome of everything viewers want, romance, drama, sports, victory – you name it. Starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, this is one for the history books.

2) Bull Durham

Kevin Costner starred in this romantic drama about a catcher from the minor leagues who is considered to be ‘aging’ and the movie revolves around how he slowly begins to lose his place of glory in the sport. With Susan Sarandon, another star who is a favorite among moviegoers, this one is packed with great dialogue that will keep this among the best sellers of all times as well.

3) The Natural

Ok, what can be said about a movie that stars hunky Robert Redford in his oh-so handsome younger days? Although he was considered ‘aging’ in the movie, he still looked great to fans and perhaps why this movie along with Rocky saw more female viewers than all other top sports movies. With two of the nation’s leading male ‘sex symbols’ of their day, is it any wonder? This one movie is still shown on major cable and satellite networks and continues to be a rental favorite in the sports genre.

4) Caddyshack

Most of the top sports movies are either tear-jerking dramas or romances interwoven into the plot but not Caddyshack. The only tears you will shed will be from uncontrollable laughter as three classic comics star in this irreverent look at golf. Starring Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase, it was sure to be a blockbuster and it is still going strong more than 30 years down the road.

5) Major League

Perhaps it’s not the actual movie itself that landed this in the top 5 but rather the assembled cast of actors in the film. Just take a look at the all-star cast including Charlie Sheen, Wesley Snipes, Renee Russo and Tom Berenger and you’ll see why fans loved this film.

It is really not fair to try to name five of the top sports films of all time because there have been so many. However, when there is that ‘something extra’ like a blend of comedy or overcoming defeat at all odds, it makes for a memorable script that will live on in the hearts of viewers. And after all, if it takes a man away from his recliner and a major league game on the tube, it must be great. Right?

Batman Suicide Squad – What to Expect from the Joker?

In Batman: Suicide Squad, as a villain personality, Joker has been a bad guy deep-seated in secret for many decades, and this is no different for the character showing in the new movie to be produced this year. Even if we have known for some time that Jared Leto will be in the new big role of the Clown Prince of Crime, there has been no formal information on his exact part in the movie.

Several reviews have mentioned he is not a participant of the Squad itself, but the type of maneuvers he is capable of is mostly still a secret. Luckily, we now have new details about how this Joker will act with Jared Leto behind its white mask, even if some hardcore fans were not too thrilled about the casting choice in general.

Earlier nowadays, the media published new information on what the spectators will see in Suicide Squad, such as the relation with the other bad guy Hugo Strange. A few of this stuff gets back to the villain’s earliest origins, while others will adjust to famous stages from the history, but Jared Leto puts together the image of a character like we have never seen before in live-action movies. Here is what we can expect from this Joker, with Leto playing a great villain in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

It is Based on the Dark Knight Series

It is well known right now that Ben Affleck’s Batman is partly based off the Dark Knight character, particularly his mature age and Bat-suit. The traditional 1986 series will also be inspiring for Jared Leto’s Joker, especially regarding his look. Reviews declare that Jared is leaner and scarred, but the clothes have wide shoulders. In the initial scenario, Joker has maintained a catatonic look for many years, and only when Batman reappeared he became aware of his evil side and started another killing spree.

It does not seem like his mad part will be tailored for Suicide Squad, but when or if he runs away, perhaps he will be dressed in the white-colored and violet fit he worn in the first movie and cartoon animations.

He Is Fit, not Skinny

joker jared leto

So, he will not be as muscular as when he ingested Bane’s anabolic steroid in Arkham Asylum. However, this version of the Joker will surely be with muscles rather than skinny. During his jail time, he has been working out seriously, particularly before getting out. This tells us why Leto has gained a significant amount of muscle mass, in order to fit the role better

Even if Joker has been proved to be a good fighter in the many versions of the comics, his physique portrayed in the comic books differs over time, from being incredibly slimmer to a little bit larger in stature. The Joker is a criminal genius already, but if he has been training intensely in jail, this will make him much more risky to fight with. Even if he does not have his famous arsenal of weaponry, he still could destroy any person who gets in the way without problem.

Joker’s Skin is Actually Bleached, not Caked in Makeup

joker-heath-ledger

Before we saw Joker in the theaters, when Christopher Nolan made the decision to have the villain (the late Heath Ledger) use tons of make up to create the famous scary look. Not now, Suicide Squad is returning to the traditional bleached skin, a look fitting Jared Leto’s finer facial features and the penchant for cosmetics. The Joker probably has some of the most acclaimed super villain roots. While committing illegal activities at a substance manufacturer, the guy who will become Joker got into battle with Batman and got thrown into a massive vat of dangerous substances.

These elements bleached his skin into a white shade, colored his hair green and made his lips dark red, taking whatever peace of sane mind he had left and made him the Joker. Heath Ledger’s character obviously looked as scary as possible, but it is an excellent shift of tables to see them doing the Joker’s look in the new movie in the same way it was made Jack Nicholson character in the 1989 famous movie.

He has Murdered Batman’s Sidekick

One of Joker’s most callous things in the comic strips was the ruthless killing of Jason Todd, Batman’s second Robin. Surprisingly, that will be the same situation in the new movie. Moreover to the movie relating to his previous criminal acts, Suicide Squad also says that this version of Joker murdered one of Batman’s sidekicks. The content does not reveal which particular Robin was killed, but if these films want to use Dick Grayson in the role of Nightwing, then Jason is the most likely option.

When Dark Knight Returns was released, these people were the only two sidekicks. Perhaps, following the story line in the comics, this Batman does not want to have another partner after Joker killed Jason, but later chooses to agree to let another person as new Robin, or even a Batgirl instead.

Joker is a Good Match for Amanda Waller

amanda waller

This is a little detail, but the reviews say that Suicide Squad’ supervisor Amanda Waller will interrogate the Joker during the movie. A gossip from a few months ago mentioned that Joker is introduced into the Belle Reve jail compound by Waller, in order for her to use him and maintain Harley Quinn under control. While he is there, it appears that like Waller might also make him responsible for any other illegal action he is engaged in.

The Joker, by definition, is not often supportive with his opponents, be it the Batman or govt authorities, so it is difficult to think about him offering help to Waller in every way. Nevertheless, one fact is certain: he has a strategy, and if the rumors are real, it will result in a super villain getting out of prison. The officials should have known better than to build any kind of connection with this murderous clown.

Avengers 2 Age of Ultron – Clash of Superheroes

The Avengers 2 Age of Ultron is one of the most committed movie projects put together by a movie company, and maybe the best thing about it is the way every situation was created within, being constantly on a developing path and aiming towards something larger and better. With each new scene, we understand more and more about the stories behind the scenario and we always remain with a mix of fulfillment and looking for more.

Because of the complex information in the comic books surrounding the Marvel universe, everything is possible, and it is a fun activity to go in depth about the effects on each character’s perspective, conversion and unexpected shifting as they advance in Marvel Studios’ second major milestone movie: The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

This super smash cinema hit is now almost here, since Phase Two movies like Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier have all discovered their specific methods into cinemas over the last several years. Obviously, these all have a large effect on the big upcoming of the MCU, and what do we know until now and how will it influence Avengers 2? Which is the newest twist with all the major figures involved? Follow it below as we crack the secret of every character.

Captain America

From all the movies we have watched in Phase Two, it is probably Captain America: The Winter Soldier the one which had by far the greatest effect on the Marvel Universe. Not only had the eponymous character the nightmare to deal with a scary event from his past, taking the form of Winter Soldier, but also S.H.I.E.L.D. became an extremely endangered organization that was conquered by HYDRA, and was consequently damaged by our characters.

The film left Cap with not only an upcoming dilemma he is unsure about, but also being incapable to believe in anyone around him. Maybe his only solution is his other super allies in the Avengers team. Things will become a lot more difficult for The First Avenger while the MCU comes on. We already know that he will battle Tony Stark in the next Captain America movie. Will the separation begin to show in Age of Ultron? Keep an eye on this increasing problem.

Iron Man

Tony Stark had some exciting changes at the ending of Iron Man 3, which places him in a top position in Avengers 2. This billionaire playboy and philanthropist was proven not only to look for a different course of his adventures without being dressed in the metal suits, but also he had removed the arc reactor from his chest – indicating that he was done with the super powered way of life.

Following the demise of S.H.I.E.L.D., however, he and Stark Industries joined into the industry of personal international security, and while it can seem like a wise decision, this also results in the development of a powerful super villain: Ultron. We also now found out that Tony will be a character of Captain America 3, and this will trigger the Civil War. First, we need to see his role at the ending of Age of Ultron.

Thor

Similar to the way in which Iron Man 3 increased Iron Man’s part in the Marvel Universe, in Thor: The Dark World placed its main character in a great position right before the ending of the film. The final scenes presented the God of Thunder refusing the throne of Asgard and coming back to Earth in order to be with his love.

This implies that when The Avengers will have to reassemble, Thor will not even have to go through the wormhole that link the worlds to join the team – he only has to swing the hammer and fly to the Avengers’ headquarter in Manhattan. The viewers knows that the God of Thunder left Asgard only to be ruled by his evil brother Loki, but he actually will not realize it until the clash in Thor 3.

Hawkeye

The Avengers is an amazing team movie in that it offers a chance to just all of its characters, however if there was a single hero who was given a brief appearance in the movie it was Hawkeye. The fans have publicly said how frustrated they were with his part in the series, being most of time a small character under Loki’s influence. Nevertheless, the writers and directors have guaranteed a bigger role for Hawkeye in the follow up movie.

It has been stated many times that he will have an extended segment in The Avengers: The Age of Ultron and interacting a lot more with the other team members. The movie will also hopefully tell us exactly where he was while the defeat of S.H.I.E.L.D. during Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Hulk

Even if Bruce Banner/Hulk did not have his own single film in Phase Two – while being the stand apart character of The Avengers – he is returning in a big movie in 2015. The sources have stated that he will play an extended part in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, though the actual details as to what this indicates right now are unidentified. As proven in the post-credits scene of Iron Man 3, he has gotten near Tony Stark, and it has been shown that the two technology pals will be returning together and testing stuff at the begin of Age of Ultron.

Joss Whedon

He is the only non-fictional person/character who has his own paragraph on the list, but this should just show how essential he is to the success of the Marvel Universe movies and for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. In Aug 2012 it was stated that the writer/director had agreed on a three-year contract with Marvel Studios to not only persuade him to both create and film a follow up to his original successful movie, but to act as a leading person for what has been known as Phase Two. Unfortunately, this indicates that it will be the last Avengers film under his guide, as it has been declared that The Avengers: Infinity War’s production will be conducted by other directors, probably the filmmakers responsible for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
