At this year Oscars, Seth MacFarlane caused quite a controversy as he hosted the ceremony with a number of risque bits and jokes (most notably the "We Saw Your Boobs" song from the opening monologues) but that was exactly what Oscar producers hoped MacFarlane would bring to the normally staid production. The 'Family Guy' creator previously said he has no interest in returning, the producers seemed to have liked the controversy (and the ratings that went with it) and MacFarlane has officially been invited to return to host the 2014 Oscars.
The 2013 Comic-Con is still a few months away (July 18-21) but we're already starting to hear rumors of what movies could be coming to San Diego this summer. While there was some concern that Marvel might opt out of Comic-Con to instead focus on the D23 Expo, we now have word that Marvel will be at Comic-Con and has designs on announcing a top secret new superhero project that has already begun filming. What is it? Let's find out!

Harrison Ford was a guest on last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to promote his movie '42' and naturally the discussion came around to 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and the future of the franchise. Ford tried to stay mum and say he couldn't talk about anything 'Star Wars,' but when he agreed to some questions from the audience, things got heated and Ford walked off the set. Watch video of the incident below.
This 'R.I.P.D.' trailer certainly seems to indicate that the supernatural buddy cop film is a lot like 'Men in Black' with a cranky Jeff Bridges standing in for a cranky Tommy Lee Jones and a wise-ass Ryan Reynolds filling in for a wise-ass Will Smith. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to you. Take a look at this new 'R.I.P.D.' trailer for yourself to decide.
'The Walking Dead' star Michael Rooker was openly lobbying to voice Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie. The bad news? He didn't get the part. The good news? He got another part. Rooker has joined the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cast as Yondu Udonta of the planet Centauri IV. Don't worry, we'll explain.
'The Avengers' made over $1.5 billion (with a b) at the box office, which is enough to make it one of the biggest films of all-time. But Marvel executives weren't the only ones making money off the film. Star Robert Downey, Jr. confirms he made over $50 million to star in 'The Avengers' adding, "Isn't that crazy?" Yeah, pretty much.
