There's a crazy rumor circling the Net that young Disney actress Demi Lovato might get a role in THE AVENGERS, the film which will gather all the big super heroes (IronMan, Captain America, Thor, Hulk) in one
place. It's still not known which role would go to Lovato who has just left a rehab where she has been for emotional and physical issues. Another fresh rumor on THE AVENGERS says that the super hero team might battle against the alien races Skrulls and Kree in the movie. To be directed by Joss Whedon, the film will start shooting next year. 

Two rising young stars, Gemma Arterton (CLASH OF THE TITANS, PRINCE OF PERSIA) and Andrew Garfield (SOCIAL NETWORK, SPIDERMAN) will star in CAPA, the biopic of the famous photographer to be directed by Michael Mann. The film will center on the relationship between a young German woman called Gerta Pohorylle and a young
Hungarian man called Endre Friedmann from when they met in Paris in 1935 until she died in the Spanish Civil war in 1937. Both communists, Jewish, exiled and photographers, they decided to change their names in order to sell better their works and so became Gerda Taro and Robert Capa. With these new identities, they arrived in Spain to inform about the Civil War.

"Beyond Hollywood" has published first pics for THE ALMIGHTY THOR, a film which will premiere before the more famous THOR with Chris Hemsworth, but it will go straight to DVD next May.
Starring young and stunning Cody Deal (check out his legs in the pic!!!) as Thor and almost forgotten Richard Grieco as Loki, the film will follow the young hero Thor who must  protect Earth from Armageddon when the demon god Loki destroys the fortress of Valhalla and steals the Hammer of Invincibility. The good news is that gorgeous Patricia Velasquez (mesmerizing Anck Su Namun from THE MUMMY) is taking the lead female role :)


  1. I saw the trailer to Thor (I think on your site) and I can't wait to see it. I loved the old avengers and I can't wait for the new one.

  2. Almighty Thor has some Almighty muscular legs! Poor Cody for his movie being straight to DVD! I hope someone watches it!

  3. Did you read the latest about Demi on TMZ.com? Seems like she has a less than Disneyesque company interested in her movies...hope she gets her act together.

    Thanks for that pic of Cody -- wonder what he does to look that muscular?

  4. Really looking forward to The Avengers. And Michael Mann can do no wrong - amazing director.

  5. Cody Deal has amazing legs! I love Patricia and am happy to watch anything she's in. Wonder if Demi will get to fight as she's apparently good at throwing punches. ;)

    you didn't read the whole post, Clarrisa :) It's not the same THOR that you have in mind :)

    indeed this Thor looks super hot and muscular! I will watch him and surely you will too :)

    glad you're excited about it

    I didn't read that about Demi :( I feel sorry for her. Showbiz isn't easy on teen stars.
    When it comes to gorgeous Cody I just found out that he auditioned for SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND. He would've made a great Spartacus, but Thor isn't bad either.

    he really does, doesn't he? :) And I also love Patricia, I'm not sure why she didn't get more roles in Hollywood after THE MUMMY :(

  8. I think we should comment on Gemma's legs as well. Nice. But Cody's are huge. First thing I noticed.

  9. Ah, Budd, I was about to mention Gemma's legs too :) but for some reason most of the HOLLYWOOD SPY's readers don't like her so I was afraid to start the subject :) She does have a stunning body and also a super sensual voice as seen and heard in CLASH OF TITANS and PRINCE OF PERSIA!

  10. I, for one, noticed the legs right away....

  11. Wow, I thought at first it was Penelope Cruz. Never heard of this girl before but she sure is pretty.

    Btw Dez, don't mean to doubt your keen spy-eye but are you sure that's Gemma?? She looks an awful lot like Olga Kurylenko, her co-star in Quantum of Solace. But maybe it's just in that pic??

    Anyway, I like Andrew G, but not exactly crazy for Gemma.

  12. ah, Flixy, I thought the exact same thing - that it could be Olga. It is apparently an add for DARJILING ... Unlike you, I like Gemma, but I'm not exactly crazy about Garfield :PP

  13. I don't suppose Demi is going to have to swim much in this movie? No? Shame.

  14. The Lovato news seems a little strange, though I suppose she could be cast as Wasp. I dunno, having one of those Disney divas as a Marvel character wouldn't be such a good idea. I hope it's just rumour.

  15. @Cheeseboy

    ah, no, she won't be Wasp, since they said the film will not have any other female super heroes beside Black Widow :(

  16. Ah, thanks for the clarification, Dez. It's an ad so naturally heavy photoshop-ing is involved ;)

  17. yeah, i really like demi lovato...
    i don't keep up with celebrity gossip (except what i hear here about movies), but i did hear about her going to rehab. i think celebrity is terribly difficult on teens- shoot! just life is difficult for some teens- and they are just learning. they don't have all the answers (who does?) and sometimes, the things they do aren't what we'd like to see. i think demi is a really talented young lady, and i really hope that she gets better!
    and hoo boy! that guy could probably kick a soccer ball really far! :)

  18. @Flixy
    indeed! :)

    yes, it's sad watching how showbiz eats its children alive :(((
    And yep, I'd watch him kick some ball any time :))
