Idris Elba Promises ‘Huge’ Thor Sequel

Idris ElbaIdris Elba has vowed Thor 2 will be "huge."

The British actor is set to reprise his role as Asgardian gatekeeper, Heimdall in the sequel - which will again see Chris Hemsworth portray the title character - and though he says it will be an epic adventure, he also revealed the story will examine the characters in detail.

"Definitely Heimdall's more involved, but also, what's more involved is who the Asgardians are. I think we'll see a sense of that. It's a huge film, Thor 2, but I also think it's micro in a way that you start to look at people, who they are a little bit more," he said.

Though production on the sequel - which is expected to explore the other realms of the universe, outside of Asgard and Earth - has not yet begun, Idris can't wait to get to work on the movie: "I'm actually excited about it. I literally just did a costume fitting the other day."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Hairstyles, News,

Vidal SassoonMiley Cyrus is among the stars to have paid tribute to Vidal Sassoon.

The celebrity hairstylist - whose 1960s wash-and-wear cuts allowed women to be freed from hairspray - passed away at his home in Los Angeles Wednesday morning aged 84, and a number of famous faces and fellow stylists have hailed his revolutionary ways.

"RIP Vidal Sassoon. You are forever fabulous," Miley wrote on her Twitter.

Model Erin O'Connor hailed Vidal as an "inspiration" in her tribute. "RIP Vidal Sassoon. Inspired so many, myself included," she wrote.

Meanwhile, celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke praised Vidal for his "drive of modernism" and overhaul of women's hairstyling. "He was part of that drive of modernism. He was very, very interested in modernism of all sorts...he just introduced all of that into hair. And at the same time he probably freed women of that weekly ritual of having their hair backcombed and being under a dryer. It depicted a whole new look of that time," he said on Daybreak.

Weekend Reading: The Avengers, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Dave Berg

The Avengers MovieNow, how many times have you already seen The Avengers? Doesn't it just kick movie butt? And what movie do you think we'll be talking about all summer? Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises?

Avengers Assemble...in line! Former Malibu Comics publisher and co-founder Dave Olbrich (now a manager at Space Goat Productions) and for Malibu Comics Editor-In-Chief Chris Ulm (now the head guy at Appy Entertainment), show up at the :20 mark in this report from AMC theaters in southern California.

Longbox Graveyard goes Marathoning and Assembling for Avengers and other Marvel-based movies. “Five of my favorite superhero movies, in a day-long sitting, followed by a midnight debut of The Avengers! Seventeen hours in a movie theater, ninety minutes in the car each way getting there, a day off work to do it and another day off to recover. Great for a twelve-year-old, not-so-great if you’re half a century old. So I found a couple twelve-year-olds and went anyway.”

Freddie Mercury to Appear on Stage as an ‘Optical Illusion’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Performances, Rock,

Freddie MercuryFreddie Mercury is to appear on stage as an "optical illusion."

The late Queen front man - who passed away in 1991 - will seem to perform for an audience at musical We Will Rock You, which is based on the band's music, to mark the tenth anniversary of the show in London.

Queen guitarist Brian May told BBC news the new "effect" was "an optical illusion of sorts." He added, "People will come out saying, 'did we actually see Freddie?'" However, Brian said the effect used will be different to the hologram technology which made late rapper Tupac Shakur appear on stage and perform at Coachella festival in California last month.

"It's a little unfortunate they did that thing with Tupac as we've been trying to make Freddie appear on the stage for quite a while The hologram technique is something we've looked at ourselves but I think probably for a show that runs eight shows a week it's not really practical."

The special edition show of We Will Rock You will take place on May 14 at London's Dominion Theatre. Queen have previously made live appearances where Freddie appears to sing the band's hit "Bohemian Rhapsody" using a backing track and video footage of him singing the song.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaThe first masseur who accused John Travolta of sexual assault has reportedly been dropped by his lawyer.

The accuser - known only as John Doe # 1 - filed a $2 million dollar lawsuit against the Pulp Fiction actor claiming he made unwanted sexual advances towards him in Los Angeles on January 16, but after the masseur admitted earlier today that he got the date of the alleged attack wrong he is no longer being represented by Los Angeles attorney Okorie Okorocha.

"Okorocha did not feel he could represent John Doe #1 going forward anymore and recommend him finding another lawyer," a source told RadarOnline.com.

But Okorocha will continue to represent a second masseur - who is known only as John Doe #2 - who has also made sexual assault claims against the star, although John's attorney Marty Singer has vehemently denied both allegations.
