If you come away from Guardians Of The Galaxy thinking that an Avengers crossover would be awesome, you should know that your dreams are likely to come true.

Speaking with Yahoo UK, director James Gunn and cast members from the movie revealed that the option is on the table and has been discussed. Gunn explains:

“We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover], and I kind of know what the basic plan is,” explained Gunn. “That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.”

So there you have it. If Guardians is successful (and you know that it will be) it seems like there is no way Marvel will pass on an Avengers crossover of some sort.

the knick

To promote their new series The Knick from director Steven Soderbergh, HBO/Cinemax sent us this awesome, personalized, early 20th century medical kit complete with slides, medicine bottles, forceps and a USB syringe. As far as promotional items go, this is pretty badass.

The kit also came with a preview copy of the first episode, which is set to air on August 8th at 10pm. I watched it last night, and came away impressed. Of course, that’s to be expected with Steven Soderbergh directing and Clive Owen playing the lead.

If I’m honest, this is the kind of show that you would expect on HBO, not Cinemax—which is a clear indicator that the latter is trying to move away from its “Skinemax” reputation.

Think of The Knick as ER if it was set in a period where modern medicine was in its infancy. Every major procedure is a life or death experiment and the world around the hospital is brutal, corrupt, prejudiced and riddled with disease. The show really drives the setting home with melancholy creepiness and plenty of gore.

Needless to say, I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the episodes this season. I’ve also heard that a second season has already been confirmed, which is pretty unusual for a show that hasn’t even aired yet.

Head after the break for more pics, videos and a full synopsis of the show.

deadpool test footage

Test footage from the defunct Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool movie surfaced on YouTube this morning, was quickly yanked, and now it’s resurfaced.

It appears that 20th Century Fox had the original video removed, but it’s probably the best thing that could have happened. Clearly, there is a demand for this film and this (mostly CGI) footage looks pretty great. Check it out for yourself after the break before it disappears again…

batman superman teaser leak

The quality of the leaked Batman V Superman teaser from the WB panel at SDCC is predictably terrible, but it’s enough to see why the audience lost their sh*t.
