Batman to Birdman to Spiderman: Michael Keaton in Talks to play 'Spider-Man Homcoming' Villain

13 April 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Word is, one of the most Iconic Superhero actors in cinematic history maybe turning heel, and taking on a certain walk crawling web head!

Before 1989 the nerd community scuffed at the idea of "Mr. Mom" playing the caped crusader. Today we argue "but is *Insert Batman Actor* better the Keaton?" But now we wonder, are we ready to see one of our favorite caped crusaders jump ship, and join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

After yesterdays news broke that our official title for the Spider-Man reboot would be "Spider-Man Homecoming" today we learn, via Variety, that none other then Oscar nominated actor Michael Keaton is in early talks to play the films lead villain. While exciting this isn't exactly a surprise type of choice. Now that Marvel is acting as "Creative producers" on the film, that pretty much means they are running the show. And Marvel has a history with bringing on Oscar caliber actors. »

Michael Keaton To Play Villain In ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

13 April 2016 2:49 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He's been Batman already, and Birdman, but now Micheal Keaton is going to try on a different kind of superhero movie role, and one that should get fans plenty excited. Read More: Sony's Standalone 'Spider-Man' Movie Will Feature Marvel Characters Variety reports that the actor is in early talks to play a villain role in Sony and Marvel's "Spider-Man: Homecoming." The solo movie, featuring the relaunched webslinger played by Tom Holland (who will be making his first appearance in "Captain America: Civil War" — our review) already has plenty of rumors swirling around it. Most recently, it was suggested that Vulture would be one of possibly a few villains in the movie. As fans know, Sam Raimi wanted to use the character in "Spider-Man 4" (played by John Malkovich), before the movie fell apart. The character was also rumored at one point for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" but that didn't bear out either. »

Rumour: The Vulture to appear in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming

13 April 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get your pinch of salt at the ready, as Birth.Movies.Death has popped up with a rumour about a possible villain for Sony and Marvel’s 2017 Spider-Man reboot, which is now officially going by the title of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

According to the site, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will face off against Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. The Vulture, although it’s unknown whether the winged villain will be the main antagonist or a supporting character.

The Vulture is one of Spider-Man’s oldest villains, having appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #2 way back in 1963. The character is yet to make an appearance in live-action, although Sam Raimi did plan to include him in the ultimately-aborted Spider-Man 4, casting John Malkovich in the role.

Vulture Rumour

With Tom Holland making his Spider-Man debut in the incoming Captain America: Civil War, thoughts will soon turn to his standalone webslinger outing, which is due in cinemas in 2017.

We know that Jon Watts is directing the new movie, and that Marisa Tomei has joined the cast as Aunt May. Now, though, comes the first rumour regarding which character will be the villain of the piece. And it sounds like it’s going to be Vulture.

'The Vulture' Rumored To Be Villain In Spider-man Reboot; Final Title Possibly Revealed

12 April 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Birth.Movies.Death, they've heard that the upcoming Spider-Man reboot is indeed titled Spider-Man: Homecoming (which makes sense all things considered) and that we may even get to see the treatment for that a little later today during Sony's CinemCon presentation. Time will tell on that front, but the site adds that The Vulture is going to be a villain in the movie. They're not sure what kind of role he'll end up having, but do mention that they've previously heard that Adrian Toomes won't be the main big bad. The Spider-Man movies have struggled with utilising more than one villain in the past, so he'll hopefully make little more than a cameo appearance if this report is accurate and he's not the wall-crawler's main foe.  Sam Raimi actually planned on using The Vulture in Spider-Man 4, and John Malkovich was being eyed for the role at the time, »

Megan Fox: "No-One Should Ever See Jonah Hex"

30 March 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actress Megan Fox has a good sense of humour about herself it seems. Speaking with Celebrity TV recently, she discussed her role in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Turtles: Out Of The Shadows" and indicates the film was re-written and adjusted for a more family friendly audience - clean enough that even six-year-olds can enjoy it.

That led to a conversation about which of her films she would allow her two children to watch, leading to this gem:

"It would be nice to make some things that they can see, yeah, because something like Jennifer's Body I'm not going to let them see for a long time. Something like Jonah Hex I'm not going to let them see ever, no one should ever see that movie."

The comments follow on from some made by the film's star Josh Brolin earlier this year who slammed the film for its big budget and »

10 Best Horse Movies – Celebrating Birthday Of 1973 Triple Crown Winner Secretariat

30 March 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

March 30, 1970. Racing champion Secretariat was born.

After Citation in 1948, Secretariat became the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years and became the stuff of legend.

New York Post columnist Larry Merchant said:

Secretariat is the kind of Big Horse that makes grown men weep, even when they are flint-hearted bettors, even when he goes off at 1-10. He is the apparently unflawed hunk of beauty and beast they search for doggedly in the racing charts every day, and never seemed to find. His supporters rhapsodize over him as though he is a four-legged Nureyev, extolling virtues of his musculature, his grace, his urine specimens.” If he were to lose the Belmont, Merchant warned, “the country may turn sullen and mutinous.”

As of 2015, only 12 horses have won the Triple Crown: Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978), and American Pharoah (2015).

Mark Wahlberg Faces Real Disaster in First 'Deepwater Horizon' Trailer

23 March 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Mark Wahlberg has faced Transformers, terrorists, corrupt cops, and deadly trees. This time, he's facing an oil drilling rig that experiences a deadly blowout and threatens everyone on board. Deepwater Horizon is the latest film from Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, chronicling the real life disaster that happened nearly six years ago. The exposition in this trailer juxtaposed with the dramatized disaster is done very nicely, but things really get intense when the rig goes up in a huge fireball. This just might be good. Here's the first Deepwater Horizon trailer from Lionsgate: On April 20, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), this story honors the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever.

Taut First Trailer For Deepwater Horizon Teases Danger At Sea

23 March 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bubbling to the surface mere hours after Lionsgate unveiled an early stream of photos, today heralds the release of the first Deepwater Horizon teaser trailer.

Placing a laser focus on the disastrous Bp oil spill of 2010, Peter Berg’s (Lone Survivor) environmental actioner thrusts Mark Wahlberg into the Gulf of Mexico where, unbeknownst to him, the crew of an American oil rig will be left facing the biggest man-made disaster in modern history.

But what today’s trailer does so well is introducing us to a time before the sea-floor oil gusher ruptured, expertly allowing an endearing family breakfast to run in parallel with action shots pulled from when the shit hits the fan. Breaking down the minutia of deep-sea drilling in layman’s terms, the opening involves Wahlberg’s blue-collar worker and his daughter using a Coke can – Independence Day, eat your heart out – to illustrate the process involved »

Experience the Powerful First Trailer for Deepwater Horizon

23 March 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The director of Lone Survivor, Peter Berg, is giving us another film based on a true story.  This time it's the story of the workers on Deepwater Horizon.  Check out the first trailer.

You have to hand it to director Peter Berg.  The man knows how to tell a story.  Lone Survivor was a captivating, emotional movie.  Now, he turns his sights on the 2010 oil spill.  More specifically, the story of the workers on Deepwater Horizon.

Even the trailer gives us a good story to go off of.  Sure, we know what ultimately happens, as we do with any "Inspired by True Story" movies.  However, the innocent explanation of Mark Wahlberg's on-screen daughter helps us to understand what is about to happen.  It's very clever of Berg to film it, like that.  

On April 20, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. »
