Will over 30 minutes of deleted scenes on "The Avengers" upcoming home video release, at this rate it's all going to be online so you won't have to buy the damn thing (well, unless you want to watch the movie again, which you probably do). So far we've seen more Bruce Banner, Harry Dean Stanton, Loki, Hawkeye and a gag reel but it seems Joss Whedon's longer assembly cut of the movie was a decidedly more dour affair. After the rather grim alternate opening arrived yesterday, a lengthy 3 minute deleted scene has arrived and it's another mood killer.

That Ryan Gosling has had ambitions to direct is hardly a surprise. He once kicked the tires on a remake of the 1980 Taylor Hackford film “The Idolmaker," and at TIFF last year he plainly stated his intentions. “I wanted to work with George Clooney [on 'Ides Of March'] because he’s an actor turned director and I wanted to see that in action, and I’m learning a lot from Nicolas [Winding Refn] and Derek [Cianfrance] ...I’m just basically trying to treat it as a film school for myself right now before I start making my own films -- not to undervalue the movies themselves, I want to see those movies so I’m making them -- but I’m also trying to get as much out of them as I can before I kind of transition out of this and into that,” he explained. And it looks like he's ready to add writer/director to his resume.

Handjob, blowjob, rimjob, cunnilingus...no, this isn't about the nominees at the next AVN awards, but is instead just a few of the items you'll find on Aubrey Plaza's (character's) list in the naughty comedy, "The To Do List." And seemingly out of nowhere, the movie now has a release date and a brand new trailer to go with it.

With Paris and New York City getting auteur-driven portraits with "Paris, je t'aime" and "New York, I Love You," those movies have inspired producers and filmmakers from around the world to develop their own city-driven projects. And while omnibus films have been percolating in places like Rio, Shanghai, Jerusalem, Berlin and Sydney over the past few years, it's Tbilisi in Georgia that have come out of the gate with the next effort.

Rumor: Could Rebooted Batman First Appear In 'Justice League' Movie?

According to a Batman on Film, there's a rumor circulating that Batman could be rebooted, post-Christopher Nolan, not in his very own standalone film but as part of the proposed "Justice League" movie. This new version of the character would then star in a separate film after the "Justice League" movie is released and makes a whole lot of money. Take this for what it is – an extreme, ALL CAPS rumor – but in a weird way it would make sense for the "Justice League" property to introduce DC characters that can then be spun off later, in a kind of inverse of the Marvel model, in which a bunch of mediocre movies served as the precursor to the much better team-up film "The Avengers."

Nash Edgerton is a man of many hats. A stuntman and coordinator of some reknown who has worked on everything from "The Matrix" trilogy to "The Thin Red Line" to "Moulin Rouge!", he's also a filmmaker, likely best known for the thriller "The Square" but also earned strong notices for his recent short, "Bear." But it appears he has a friend in Bob Dylan as well. Little did we know, but he's directed two videos for the legend already, "Must Be Santa Claus" and "Beyond Here Lies Nothin,' " and now a third has arrived.
