11 Perfect Casting Choices That Made Comic Book Movies

4 September 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

Castings make movies – and that notion is no different when it comes to movies based on comic book heroes and villains.

There have been some absolutely horrific casting decisions in comic book movies over the years – George Clooney as Batman, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. FreezeJulian McMahon as Doctor Doom, Topher Grace as Venom, Vinnie Jones as Juggernaut and Wes Bentley as Blackheart to name just a few examples – and they have sullied the movies they were in, both in the eyes of critics and fans alike.

On the flip-side, good castings have been key to earning comic book movies mass critical acclaim and box office success. Some of the biggest and most successful comic book movies have now earned over $1 billion dollars worldwide (The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers) and the genre as a whole is now one of the most popular in Hollywood. »

Trailers: Foxcatcher, Rosewater, Rewrite, You

28 August 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A second teaser trailer is out for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," the Steve Carell and Channing Tatum-led drama which looks to be one of the biggest players in the upcoming awards season following the film's sterling reception at Cannes back in May.

The first trailer is out for "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's directorial debut "Rosewater". The story follows Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal), who was arrested for espionage while covering the Iranian elections in 2009 and held for nearly four months. The film, which opens in November, premiered the other day at the Venice Film Festival to respectable but not gushing reviews.

Next comes the trailer for the Hugh Grant-led rom-com "The Rewrite". Grant stars as a former Oscar-winning screenplay writer long past his glory days who takes on a college teaching job. Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons star.

'The Knick's John Thackery and other TV surgeons, ranked

8 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Television is full of surgeons, some good and some, well—let’s just say you wouldn’t want them to operate on you or anyone you know.

When Cinemax’s The Knick, a show about the early days of surgery, premieres Friday, viewers will meet yet another TV surgeon: Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen), a gruff doctor who’s often up to his elbows in blood. Because The Knick is set in the early 20th century, Thackery is lacking many of the luxuries today’s medical professionals have. But he still proves more trustworthy than, for example, Grey’s Anatomy’s Leah Murphy. »

Marvel Comics' first family of superherodom, the Fantastic Four, hits the big screen in a light-hearted and funny adventure. It begins when down-on-his-luck genius Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) has to enlist the financial and intellectual help from former schoolmate and rival Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon) in order to pursue outer-space research into human DNA. Also on the trip are Reed's best friend, Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis); his former lover, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), who's now Doom's employee and love interest; and her hotshot-pilot brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans). Things don't go as planned, of course, and the quartet becomes blessed--or is it cursed?--with superhuman powers: flexibility, brute strength, invisibility and projecting force fields, and bursting into flame. Meanwhile, Doom himself is undergoing a transformation. Fantastic Four featured: Director: Tim Story Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman Chris Evans as »

10 Comic Book Movie Villains Who Were Universally Loved

10 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Comic book movies have provided us with some of Hollywood’s most memorable characters over the years – though not always for the right reasons.

There have been some absolutely awful characters depicted and some truly stinking performances – Howard the Duck, Julian McMahon’s Doctor Doom, Topher Grace’s Venom and Vinnie Jones’ Juggernaut are examples of characters and performances that we’d all rather forget – but there have undoubtedly been some great counter-examples. Now that the initial stigma that was attached to comic book movies has disappeared (people really didn’t take them seriously for a while), big things are expected from them as A-list actors are increasingly becoming attached to them and giving highly accomplished performances.

Villain portrayals in particular have proven to bring out the best in actors in a lot of cases, with the evil-doers arguably outdoing the heroes on the popularity front overall »

Fantastic Four Reboot Finds Its Bad Guy

2 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Variety reports unknown Toby Kebbell has been offered the role of Doctor Doom in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. Doom is a super genius, sorcerer, and the Four's archenemy. In the 2005 incarnation of the adaptation, he was played by Julian McMahon. Kebbell would be joining a cast that already includes Michael B. Jordan (the Human Torch), Kate Mara (Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic Reed Richards), and Jamie Bell (The Thing). That's a pretty cool group to hang out with, even if they're no Michael Chiklis. »

Toby Kebbell, last seen battling angry Gods in “Wrath of the Titans” and soon to be seen battling angry apes in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” will now be playing an angry guy himself in Josh Trank’s reboot of “The Fantastic Four.” The British actor has landed the role of Victor von Doom, aka Doctor Doom, the villain of the upcoming comic book remake that will also star Miles Teller as Mister Fantastic (aka Stretchy Guy), Kate Mara as Invisible Girl (aka anyone in this role will be 100-times more convincing than Jessica Alba), Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch (aka wiseass guy) and Jamie Bell as the Thing (aka the rock guy). The super foursome, of course, gets their powers after going for a cosmic joyride, or some such.

Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne & More In The Mix To Play Dr. Doom In 'Fantastic Four'

12 March 2014 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Producer Matthew Vaughn and director Josh Trank have been doing everything in their power to distance their “Fantastic Four” reboot from the earlier goofy films. Not content with just casting great young actors as the famous superhero team, the filmmakers are looking to surprise with their villain choice too. Played by TV actor Julian McMahon in the two Tim Story-helmed films, Dr. Doom (aka Victor von Doom) is the chief antagonist of the superheroic foursome and a genius in his own right. So which actor will don the armor and hood next? According to The Wrap, it’s down to four: Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne, Toby Kebbell and Domhnall Gleeson. Gleeson and Riley are both inspired choices in the same vein as rising talents Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller, with Redmayne in a similar position as Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, talented actors who’ve been in the »

4 Actors Spell Doom For ‘The Fantastic Four’

12 March 2014 12:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With The Fantastic Four being announced earlier this month, 20th Century Fox are now looking for their main antagonist, Dr. Victor Von Doom. It looks as though the search is narrowing as four actors are now being considered to take on Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell in the rebooted franchise. The list is comprised of three British actors and one Irish actor, dispelling rumours of a female Von Doom.

Sam Riley, Eddie Redmayne, Toby Kebbell, and Domhnall Gleeson are all being considered for one of Marvel’s most iconic villains, played previously by Julian McMahon and Joseph Culp in the 2005 and 1994 films respectively. Riley made waves in 2007 for his role in Control as Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. He will soon be appearing in Disney’s Maleficent. Eddie Redmayne proved his acting chops in My Week With Marilyn and Les Miserables. Kebbell was recently in »
