During Yahoo Movies' Facebook Live chat with Lea Thompson, she stands behind her role in '80s cult favorite 'Howard the Duck' — and its fans
The 2017 edition of the E3 Expo — the annual synapse-busting video-game show — just wrapped in Los Angeles, putting joystick jockeys up close and personal with the likes of Spider-Man, Beetlejuice, Darth Maul, and Donald Duck. Yahoo Movies toured the halls and sampled the wares, along the way discovering some sweet-looking titles that have a Hollywood hook. Here are eight worth checking out for film fans of all ages.
In Facebook Live chat with Yahoo Movies, Tom Holland talks about collection of tie-ins based on his character, how they decorate his new apartment
Yahoo Movies exclusive first look at two Lego playsets based on Marve's upcoming 'Thor: Ragnarok' movie — including a character we didn't know was coming
Tom Holland had a friend in a high place when it came to auditioning for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In 2013, Holland bonded with Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, as the pair endured the shared experience of suffering through 500-calorie-per-day diets to play shipwrecked whalers in Ron Howard’s 2015 historical drama In the Heart of the Sea. “I sent him an email while auditioning, sort of like, ‘Hey, Chris, so I’m auditioning for Spider-Man. Can you let them know that I’m amazing or something?'” Holland recalled to us in a Facebook Live interview.

Kurt Russell tells Yahoo Movies about getting approached for his role in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,' and his one hestitation about taking it on
Superheroes die all the time in the comics, but they rarely stay dead. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" contains the first substantial hero death in the studio's 15-film run — and the crime-fighting body count is certain to mount in coming films.
Don't expect a Sam-and-Diane paradox to develop between Dax and Mantis à la Star-Lord and Gamora, at least according to the actors portraying them.
When Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer-director James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios in March for a Facebook Live interview, he dropped all sorts of fun nuggets about the franchise. “Are you kidding me?” Zoe Saldana (Gamora) asked at the film’s Los Angeles press day. Karen Gillan (Nebula) was equally as flummoxed.
Turns out you don't have to wait until Baywatch's May 25 release to catch Hasselhoff in his first screen role since Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens.
Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan assess the intense rivalry between the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' sisters, and their to-the-brink-of-death battles
Guardians of the Galaxy actors spent less time getting prepared this time around, but they still spent a lot of time — except for Chris Pratt.
Spider-Man made an unforgettable entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he sprung into action in last summer’s Captain America: Civil War. The wunderkind hero played by breakout star Tom Holland proved a resourceful ally for Team Iron Man in the Avenger-vs.-Avenger clash on an airport tarmac. Holland, as it turns out, has not.
Chris Evans follows up his role as the titular beefcake crime-fighter of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War by playing a boat mechanic caring for his super-genius niece (Mackenna Grace) in the much gentler, much less action-packed new drama Gifted. Granted, he’s a boat mechanic in much better shape than the majority of Americans, but the gig still required the Avenger to tone down from superhero shape. Last summer’s Civil War marked Evans’s fifth outing as super-soldier Steve Rogers (not counting cameos in Thor and Ant-Man movies), and he’s currently in production on No. 6 with Avengers: Infinity War.
Will they or won’t they? It looks like two “Spider-Man: Homecoming” characters won’t be getting together after all.
James Gunn came into Yahoo Studios Thursday for a Facebook Live discussion about The Belko Experiment — the bloody new workplace thriller he wrote and produced — but conversation inevitably turned to that other little property he masterminds, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The big news surrounding the MCU’s outer-space odyssey today revolved around Gunn seemingly confirming a threequel ahead of May’s release of Vol. 2. In simplest terms, his comments should not be viewed as an announcement that there will in fact be a Vol. 3….
The Merc with a Mouth will have plenty of crime-fighting company in Deadpool 2. Star Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter today to announce that Zazie Beetz, who plays Donald Glover’s ex-girlfriend/baby-mama on the hit FX comedy Atlanta, has joined the cast as fellow mutant mercenary Domino. Domino first popped up in Marvel comic books in the early 1990s.
At Comic-Con last July, we learned that, while Iron Man and Captain America were punching each other over a superhero registration act in Captain America: Civil War, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor was taking it easy Down Under, hanging out with his new roommate Darryl. In the minute-and-a-half clip (above), which is included on the new home video release of Doctor Strange, Hemsworth shows off the excellent comic chops he displayed in last summer Ghostbusters, as his hero comes up with a lame scheme to make some money by selling some of his Asgardian stuff.

Look out! Here come the Spider-Man toys. Toy-maker Hasbro on Thursday revealed its lineup for Spider-Man: Homecoming, providing a bit of insight into the the upcoming film, which represents Spidey’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
By now, the trailers for Logan (in theaters March 3) have made it very clear that this is not a typical superhero movie. Quiet and despairing, light on special effects and heavy on character drama, the third Wolverine solo film looks to be a drastic departure from previous X-Men films, not to mention the Marvel and DC Comics films that dominate the genre. At a December press event last year, I previewed the first 40 minutes of Logan, and I can tell you that superhero films are never going to be the same.
As we know from its recently released plot synopsis, Logan will pick up with Wolverine as he’s drawn out of isolation – where he’s been caring for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) — in order to protect a young girl (Dafne Keen) who’s being hunted by Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and his merry band of psycho Reavers. For those not yet in the know, Keen is playing X-23, a female clone of Wolverine who made her comic-book debut back in 2004.
