Marvel fans are well aware after the end credits of every one of the comic company's movies will be a small scene alluding to the next film. Following "The Avengers" fans were introduced to Thanos, one of Marvel Universe's most important villains. Well, guess what? According to "Prometheus" writer Damon Lindelof, "Battleship" followed suit.
YAHTZEE! We're just kidding with you, but wouldn't that be fun? We're kind of hoping it happens now. "Battleship" director Peter Berg needs to pull an "Avengers"-style re-shoot and add it to the end credits. Or actually, change Yahtzee to Candy Land and we're on board.
As the 2012 MTV Movie Awards rapidly approach, there are a few big questions on everybody's mind: will "The Hunger Games" beat out reigning champion "Twilight" for Best Movie? Will "Harry Potter" finally get the recognition the film deserves? Can anybody win Best Kiss over Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? You may be thinking, "MTV, it's your movie awards, why are you asking us?" Because YOU have the power!

Despite what childhood television shows taught us (we're looking at you "Winnie the Pooh"), we're acutely aware that animals can't talk back to us. The most Sparky can do is bark when we ask if he wants to go for a walk. Now the movies we watch tell us that animals only talk back when we're under the influence of some substance—as this hilarious, exclusive "High School" clip demonstrates.
The film follows two high school friends—Henry is college bound while Travis spends most of his time getting high. When Henry decides to try marijuana for the first time, his experimental use of the drug coincides with the principal's decision to issue a mandatory drug test.
With the announcement that Marvel was making an "Avengers" film, no character was as scrutinized by fans as much as the Hulk. Consequently, actor Mark Ruffalo received the brunt of the judgement as he signed on to helm the green monster with an uncontrollable temper. The previous actors who played the role were Eric Bana and Edward Norton who didn't exactly leave comic fans begging for more.
As "The Avengers" smashes the box office with its success ($1 billion worldwide gross so far!), fans have been in agreement that Ruffalo's portrayal of the gamma-radiated monster was the best yet—and they took to Twitter to let the actor know. After Ruffalo praised Norton, fans pointed the approval back at Ruffalo to which he replied, "Wow, Thanks to all. I wasn't fishing, per say. I was more trying to Clarify how much I respect Ed and Eric."
If you've been following movies anytime since 2008, then you're probably acutely aware of what Robert Pattinson's eyes look like—especially if you're a frequent shopper at Walmart. Well, guess what? They're back.
The promotional poster for "Mission: Blacklist" was released by Embankment Films. The image casts a shadow around Pattinson's face only revealing his glowing peepers. The tagline for the film stands out in white among an assortment of letters and reads, "In a world of lies, only one man can see the truth." Standing out towards the bottom of the poster is the name Saddam Hussein.
Check out the full poster and read more about the film after the cut, and thanks to Mission Blacklist Film for the heads up!
This time next week "Battleship" will blast into theaters, but a few lucky people saw the film at the L.A. premiere last night! Rihanna brought her whole family along for the voyage as she hit the blue carpet in a revealing dress that made us question why she ever held boob envy for Brooklyn Decker. But we digress with a blush.
When MTV News caught up with the singer-turned-actress she told us her debut role intimidated her. "I was walking into this as an amateur—a complete amateur. I didn't know anything and I had a good team to learn from. I watched them, and especially Taylor [Kitsch], 'cause we did a lot of scenes together and he would always offer me advice."
If you've been scouring MTV.com lately, then you already know the great news: Russell Brand is hosting the 2012 MTV Movie Awards! Exciting, huh? There are three important ingredients that make a good host. The first is you're willing to embarrass yourself. The second is you're willing to embarrass other people. The third is that you're damn funny and can entertain an audience. We certainly think Brand has proved all three with his stand-up comedy and experience as a two-time Video Music Award emcee.
And as you can see from the tweet above, Brand's already brought on the fun and the jokes. Although, we're pretty sure he's not joking. 2012 MTV Group Sex Movie Awards, anyone? If Brand gets his way, maybe it'll happen!
"Star Trek 2" has come to a close for our favorite vulcan, Spock. Zachary Quinto tweeted a photo of his actor chair from his last night on set. Accompanying the picture, he wrote, "zq. picture wrap. holy s---." You're telling us! That means we're one step closer to the trailers and photos and clips, but we're getting ahead of ourselves.
As it turns out, Quinto wasn't the only one who wrapped on the J.J. Abrams sequel. Simon Pegg tweeted, "Wind, reel and print. The countdown to May 2013 has begun." Welcome to the countdown we began months ago, Pegg. But with the cast slowly leaving set one by one, they're sure to celebrate in style as the men (Quinto, Pegg, Chris Pine and Benedict Cumberbach) hit up Hooters the other night to unwind.
Film fans and avid readers alike mourn the passing of Maurice Sendak this morning at the age of 83. The children's book author and illustrator is famous for his widely praised book "Where the Wild Things Are," but his contributions to the film and television industry are undeniable.
Spike Jonze, the director who took on the ambitious project of turning Sendak's popular book into a motion picture, said the author's advice was invaluable in making the film. "He said from the beginning that you have to...[make] something that respects kids and doesn't talk down to them, or if not, it wasn't worth doing," Jonze said. Sendak inspired the filmmaker as well as actors like Rachelle Lefevre and John Hodgman who remember him in May 8, 2012's Twitter-Wood.
Also after the cut: Edgar Wright points out "amusing" "Dark Shadows" scenes and Damon Lindelof reveals why "Prometheus'" R-rating was inevitable.
The stars of "Star Trek 2" took a break from filming the highly-anticipated sequel and headed out for a bite to eat. Where did they go to unwind, you ask? Hooters. We bet the actors had a jolly good time. Zachary Quinto tweeted, "i am at a hooters in northern california watching a boxing game. i have never felt more at home. cc: @simonpegg."
If we could grab food and drinks with one cast, these guys would definitely be at the top of our list. But they don't just hang out during mealtimes (despite Simon Pegg's morning after tweet, "Eggs with Benedict"), Pegg also let followers know about his gym time with Chris Pine. "Right, me and Pine are off to the gym to lift heavy things and grunt and sweat in a veritable Kirk/Scotty slash fest of homoerotic exercise," he wrote. Looks like Benedict Cumberbatch isn't the only one looking forward to racy fanfic.
Also in May 7, 2012's Twitter-Wood: Mark Ruffalo and Greg Grunberg comment on Twitter hackers, Tom Felton remains mysterious about getting his eyes checked for work and the stars continue to talk "Game of Thrones."
