Bennett Miller And Darren Aronofsky Both Declined Offers To Direct Gambit

16 April 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Another morsel of comic book movie news arrives today from the scoopster supreme at Latino Review, El Mayimbe. His latest tidbit of insider intel isn’t connected to Warner Bros.’ DC movie-verse or Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, but Fox’s X-Men Universe. According to his knowledge, Channing Tatum has been courting a list of “big” name directors to helm his upcoming X-spinoff, Gambit.

Free Twitter Scoop! Channing Tatum going after Big names to direct Gambit. He approached Bennett Miller & Darren Aronofsky who both passed.

— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) April 16, 2015

Tatum landed the leading role on the long-awaited movie back in October 2014 and has since boarded as a producer, which goes some way to explaining why he’s so proactive in seeking out the perfect director. As El Mayimbe outlines in his short-but-sweet Tweet, Tatum has already approached Foxcatcher‘s Bennett Miller And Requiem For A Dream‘s Darren Aronofsky, but alas they both declined the gig. »

Daredevil recap: season one, episode one – Into the Ring

15 April 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Netflix’s new zillion-dollar series has a terrific cast, a great line in New York noir and expert fight sequences – as if Scorsese had made The Avengers

If you wish that either Martin Scorsese had directed The Avengers or that The Wire was a little sillier, Marvel and Netflix have good news in the form of Daredevil, the new hour-long drama that, on Friday, dropped 13 episodes suitable for bingeing. The series is created by Drew Goddard, director of The Cabin in the Woods (which he in turn wrote with Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon), and its first episode is very good.

Daredevil has a typically silly radioactive Stan Lee origin story, which is the first thing we see: as a little boy, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox as an adult, Skylar Gaertner as a kid) pushes a man out of the way of a careering truck and ends up splashed in the »

Joss Whedon’s Star-Studded ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Premiere Is ‘A Little Surreal’

14 April 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The spectacle of Monday’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood was a heroic effort to match a movie of such epic proportions.

Hundreds of screaming fans lined Hollywood Boulevard just to catch a glimpse of stars like Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett JohanssonJeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr., who rolled onto the carpet Tony Stark-style, fashionably late in an Audi sports car complete with an “Avengers” license plate.

Ruffalo (who plays Bruce Banner/The Hulk) opened up about his character, confessing that sometimes when he watches himself, he thinks, “Do I really do that face? Do I really look like that?” In this “Avengers” follow-up, the big green monster has some tender moments, but Ruffalo commented that his role involves “mostly smashing, crashing and bashing.”

Elizabeth Olsen made a bold claim about her character, Scarlet Witch — who first appeared in the »

Wally Wood Panel Recap

13 April 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 years ago, an artist named Wallace “Wally” Wood (or Woody to most people) changed Daredevil’s costume from his original yellow suit to the iconic red and black outfit he still wears to this day. (Even in the Daredevil Netflix show.) But Wally Wood did a lot more than redesign Daredevil and had a long career doing newspaper strips as well as horror and sci-fi books for EC Comics and humor for the immortal Mad. At East Coast Comicon, comic book artist and philanthropist J. David Spurlock, who co-founded the Wally Wood Scholarship Fund and co-wrote a biography of Wood, and veteran comics creators Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and Bob Wiacek (Uncanny X-Men) swapped stories and chatted about Wood’s life, work, and legacy.

Larry Hama began the panel by saying he learned about Wally Wood during the mid-1960s through a friend at High School of Art and Design, »

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Daredevil episode 1 viewing notes: Into The Ring

10 April 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's the first of our episode-by-episode annotations of Marvel's Daredevil series, released today on Netflix...

With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.

That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, call them show notes, call »
