THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Splash News Online have captured photos of the conflict between Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Christopher Eccleston's Malekith on the set of "Thor: The Dark World." Pretty intense stuff.

THE WOLVERINE

The official plot synopsis of "The Wolverine" has made its way online. While nothing in the synopsis is actually all that surprising, it's nice to have a few things completely confirmed.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

TRANSFORMERS 4

Vulture reports Michael Bay's "Transformers 4" starring Mark Wahlberg is likely to be set in China -- but it's not really for story purposes. Vulture's unnamed sources claim it's because filming in China and working with a local production partner will increase the likelihood of the film seeing a wide release in China.
