Well Warner Bros figures since there are different variations of Superman why not use them all in live action movies.
It started with an exchange between Mark Millar and Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts which saw the latter reveal that Warner Bros. had turned down his pitch for a Superman: Red Son movie but Den of Geek claims to have heard from “very, very, very reliable sources” that the studio is looking to bring the Mark Millar penned comic to the big screen at some point in the near future.
Millar has said on Twitter that Warner Bros. has met with at least two filmmakers to discuss the property and provided a statement to the site in which he says, “I’ve got pals at Warner Bros but never discussed it with them. I think they’re just going through their back catalogue of big books and hoping to lure in good directors as opposed to any particular interest in developing Red Son.”
Now this is far from confirmed as happening just yet, but between the comments made by Vogt-Roberts and Millar and the site’s claims that they’ve heard it’s potentially in the works, the signs are looking good.
Superman: Red Son is a very interesting DC Comics property to adapt and isn’t exactly the Superman tale we expected to see on the big screen next. Man of Steel 2 has seemingly been stuck in development hell for a while and it’s not clear right now whether Henry Cavill would play a Russian (and somewhat villainous) version of the character or if the studio would recast him and new versions of Batman and Wonder Woman. It also feels like an R-Rating would suit this property well.
Do you think that Warner Bros needs to tackle this story with them already having the regular versions of the heroes going forward?
With Spiderman:Homecoming just a week away not only is the anticipation building but we are starting to get a bit more information about Peter Parker. Now we initially thought that our first introduction to Peter in the MCU came in Captain America:Civil War but the web-slinger himself Tom Holland has delivered another tidbit of information.
Remember in Iron Man 2 when the hammer drones went rogue at the Stark Expo? Well there is a belief that the youngster wearing an Iron Man mask who stands up to one of Justin Hammer’s drones is, in fact, the future Spider-Man.
In a recent interview, the actor revealed that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has told him that the kid saved by Tony Stark is indeed Peter.
“I can confirm that is Peter Parker. I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now. It’s cool,”
he added. “I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
Whether or not that was meant to be Peter at the time is hard to say and it’s something that only Feige and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau probably know for sure. Either way, this is an incredible Easter Egg and one hell of a retcon which gives Spidey a very special place in the MCU. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out whether or not this moment is actually referenced in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Well if the movie thats happening already doesn’t make much sense, where here’s more to add on to it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock will be facing off against Carnage. In the comics, Carnage is a symbiote, just like Venom, who attached to Brock’s prison cellmate, serial killer Cletus Kassidy.
As the story goes after Brock manages to escape prison by using the symbiote, some of it was left behind and attached to Kassidy, transforming him into Carnage. Carnage’s powers include shapeshifting, physical strength that’s more powerful than Venom and Spider-Man combined, and the ability to plant thoughts into people’s minds. Carnage is also more accepting and bonded with his symbiote and uses the term “I” as opposed to Brock who still is two separate entities.
The Hollywood Reporter has also heard that, even though Spider-Man star Tom Holland is only contractually obligated to Spider-Man 2 and 3, the plan is to still bring him into the spinoffs films, like Venom, as well as potentially other Marvel movies. Which let’s all be honest would only make ALL of the sense in the world.
Venom will open in theaters on October 5, 2018, with Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer set to direct. Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal are producing the film. Reports suggest Venom will be of the action, horror, and sci-fi genres. Who would you like to see play the role of the Serial Super Killer opposite Tom Hardy?
Yes not only did you read the headline of this story correctly, but also that is a photo to remind you of that GOD AWFUL remake from back in 2015. Oh but guess what? That’s not the end oh not by a long shot.
The new wrinkle according to BC is that Fox is now looking at making a Fantastic Four kid-friendly movie that’s similar in concept to The Incredibles. They specifically add that their sources tell them that the new story will be told through the eyes of the children of Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman – Franklin and Valeria Richards.
If Smith’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he did a bit of work on the script for the 2015 reboot but his contributions ultimately went uncredited as Trank elected to write his own screenplay. While the 2015 film starring Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara didn’t work out the way anyone planned over at Fox, it seems the studio liked Smith enough that he’s receiving another shot at finding the right formula for the superhero family that was once the cornerstone of Marvel Comics.
THIS JUST HAS TO BE STOPPED LIKE SERIOUSLY! ! ! How many times can they get Dr. Doom wrong??
There’s close to a year to go before the Merc with the mouth takes over movie screens again in Deadpool 2. However, that doesnt mean that the anti-hero will not be giving us cool little tid bits, easter eggs and set photos like this first one from its star Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool in full costume is hanging out in front of the X-men mansion.
Now even though we have gotten so much great news already with Deadpool 2 such as bringing a pair of famous comics characters into view: Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beets (Atlanta) as Domino. After the surreal success of the first film 20th Century Fox no doubt increased the budget this time around. We are not sure if director David Leitch and Reynolds will be including actual X-Men cameos this time around (aside Colossus who will be returning), or if they’re gonna maintain the scrappy spirit of the first movie. What we do know is that Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult are in the midst of negotiations to return for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and that film is scheduled to be in production at the same time as Deadpool 2, so it’s possible that some cast crossover could occur. If anything just doing something silly in the spirit of the film or have them actually dealing with their issues in their film would be amazing.
Deadpool 2 is slated to hit theaters June 1, 2018
Since Joss Whedon has taken over, reshoots, or as Warner would like you to call them, additional shoots, are taking place. Along with them, we’ve now seen this image, originally posted by the Twitter account of the UK fan site, “DC World.”
Speculation as to whether this is supposed to be early construction on a Hall Of Justice set piece, or a Watchtower set piece is running rampant, but either way, our DC heroes look like they’re getting a proper home base.
Before we get too carried away, Tim Burton is filming Dumbo in the same area, but c’mon, it has to be the Hall, right? Right? Catch the next podcast and we’ll give you our opinions on it!
Deadline reports longtime X-Men series writer and producer Simon Kinberg has officially signed on to write and direct X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which will bring back the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, including James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler).
Kinberg will also produce the film alongside Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker.
In addition, actress Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the villain of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Should the actress strike a deal for the picture, THR reveals she will take on the role of Lilandra, emrpess of the Shi’ar Empire, an alien race that is in search of and eager to eradicate the Phoenix Force. Sophie Turner will reprise her role as Jean Grey in the film, the host of the Phoenix Force and subject of the Shi’ar’s search. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to open in theaters on November 2, 2018.
Kinberg previously confirmed that the next X-Men movie would jump ahead ten years from Apocalypse, offering a 1990s setting for the sequel. The X-Men comics saw a commercial boom during the ’90s, following character redesigns by Jim Lee, which went on to be the basis for the fan-favorite animated series.
2018 is set to be a banner year for the X-Universe as Dark Phoenix will cap off the year following Josh Boone‘s New Mutants on April 13, 2018 and Deadpool 2 on June 1, 2018
