So where does the myth of Prometheus, the dude who stole fire from the gods, fit into the equation? Internet whispers suggest it’s the science of terraforming (i.e. the modification of a planet to replicate earth) that’s fire equivalent here, under the watch of Theron’s Meredith Vickers, the representative of our old friends Weyland-Yutani. “That’s one of the familar things from the Alien movies – there are corporate interests at play”, says writer Damon Lindelof who goes on to insist that Theron won’t be as “slimy” as Paul Reiser’s treacherous Burke in Aliens. “She’s not the fast-talking, snake-oil face of the company,” the Lost man continues. “As we were developing the script, she had some really cool ideas that made it not the suit you’re used to.”

Young Adult actress Charlize Theron has teased some information about what the audience members can expect from her character in the forthcoming Alien prequel Prometheus. Charlize claims that her character is a bit of a villain in the film but, without giving too much away, her character starts of one way and ends up another.
Theron explained, “I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s the suit that runs the company that has nickeled and dimed this whole thing together, to fund this mission. She starts out one thing and ends up another thing. It’s a pretty nice surprise, toward the third act, so I don’t want to ruin that for you, but she really does start out very one-dimensional.”

Snow White and the Huntsman (June 1)
Stars: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth
Director: Rupert Sanders
Plot: The Evil Queen (Theron) successfully sucks the youth and beauty out of her rivals, until her banished stepdaughter, Snow White (Stewart), emerges as her most serious threat.
Why we're game: Snow White has never been hotter — dueling project Mirror Mirror(March 16) features Julia Roberts as the famed Evil Queen. The grittier Huntsman, with Theron's full menace, looks ever badder. And Stewart battling in armor rather than pining after her vampire lover? Heaven.
Prometheus and The Avengers also got a mention. See it under the cut.
Snow White and the Huntsman
Release Date: June 1, 2012
Director: Rupert Sanders
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron
Of the two Snow White films coming out next year, the one with Thor star Chris Hemsworth as the titular Huntsman is the one to be excited about. We're happy to see Kristen Stewart as the lead in a big budget non-Twilight film, and with the supporting cast (especially the dwarves) filled out with likable and recognizable stars (including Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone and Ian McShane), this movie and its stylistic aesthetic is easily one of the go-to fantasy movies of 2012, offering a unique twist on a classic fairy tale. You also can't go wrong with Chris Hemsworth wielding a medieval weapon.
Charlize Theron's "Prometheus" & Chris Hemsworth's "The Avengers" also included:
Release Date: June 8, 2012
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce
Originally a prequel to Alien (still is?) but now only set in theAliens universe, Ridley Scott is back to bring us what we love most here at Screen Rant. The cast, story and mystery surrounding Prometheus, as well as the script by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts, has us so intrigued that we were sold on the concept alone. When the Prometheus trailer hit, our high hopes were justified and we couldn't be more excited about a return to Alien-style sci-fi horror, with this tale about explorers heading to a distant planet searching for the origins of our species.
Release Date: May 4, 2012
Director: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Stellan Skarsgard, Cobie Smulders
Arguably the most ambitious film project ever, no studio has ever succeeded in doing what Marvel Studios has constructed with their shared cinematic universe and lead-ups to The Avengers. Five individual superhero films over four years laid the foundation for this big superhero team-up, directed by geek icon Joss Whedon (Buffy, Firefly). And while some of the more recent Marvel superhero films didn't quite meet our expectations, we have the highest of hopes for The Avengers. Much of the film remains shrouded in mystery (and rumors), but from what we've seen so far of our favorite heroes in costume and in action, this should be the epitome of epicness.
