    Watch: Clark Gregg Kicks Ass In Marvel Short 'A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer'

    Marvel Head Kevin Feige Says He Hopes ‘Dr. Strange’ Will Be Part Of Company’s “Phase 2” PlanThe one constant in the uneven world of Marvel universe films so far -- aside from the omnipresent Samuel L. Jackson -- has been Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson. Playing the character almost with a knowing wink to audience as if to acknowledge how silly these comic book movies kind of are, he's been consistently enjoyable even if the movies he's in don't always deliver. As has been talked about for a while, Marvel is continuing to build the on screen universe this time with short films that will make appearances on the DVD/BluRay releases of the movies (the first was "The Consultant" on the "Thor" DVD). And the second short, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer," boasts a title that is almost as long as the actual movie itself.

    Review: 'Sing Your Song' A Fascinating Look At The Activist Life Of Harry Belafonte

    In the pop culture sphere, it's been a while since Harry Belafonte has made a mark musically or on the big screen. His last album came out more than two decades ago, 1988's Paradise in Gazankulu while his last film role was a small appearance in Emilio Estevez's "Bobby" a few years back. But don't think that at 84 years old, Belafonte is merely basking in the rewards of his undeniable entertainment legacy in his twilight years. A tireless activist, "Sing Your Song" is straightforward, and fascinating look at his career at the front of the civil rights movment, striving to end hunger in Ethiopia, looking to find ways to curb inner city violence all within his journey as a musician and actor. Though produced by his daughter Gina Belafonte, the film directed by Susanne Rostock is a balanced, honest look at the life of a man whose success only fueled his work for humanist causes even more.

    Bryan Singer Says Death Of 'Excalibur' Has Allowed Him To Focus On Developing 'Battlestar Galactica'

    As you might remember, at one point both Guy Ritchie and Bryan Singer were chasing remakes of John Boorman's "Excalibur" over at Warner Bros, however during the summer, both projects were quietly killed by the studio. But speaking with SFX (via Punch Drunk Critics) Singer reveals that it was actually David Dobkin's recently announced, and much more prepared "Arthur & Lancelot" that stalled out "Excalibur," and moreover, he's returning to big sci-fi project he signed on for years ago, that we figured was on a distant backburner.
