Captain Marvel — 8 Actresses We'd Cast

1 hour ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Art by Arkenstar

Marvel finally announced that a Captain Marvel movie will be coming, marking the first time a woman has been the title character in the Marvel cineverse. With a release date set for July 6th, 2018, it and Inhumans will be released in between The Avengers: Infinity War two part saga.

Kevin Feige has already informed us that Captain Marvel will be about the character Carol Danvers. This gives us some idea of who they might be looking to cast. In the comics, Danvers is blond and 5' 11". I couldn't find a specific age, or even age range, but old enough to be a high ranking officer in the United States Air Force.

Danvers gets a fusion of alien Kree genes and powers from an alien male named Captain Marvel. Danvers, now imbued with powers like superhuman strength, endurance, stamina, flight, and physical durability, takes the name Captain Marvel. »

From 'Big' to 'Marley & Me': We weigh in on TV's remake fad

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I generally pay as much attention to the broadcast network development season as I do to the baseball draft. Though the shows that actually survive development are much closer to airing chronologically than most baseball draftees are to the majors, the winnowing process is just as brutal in both cases. On average, a given network will hear 3-400 pitches a year, order scripts for 60-70 of them, make 8-12 pilots and put roughly between a half dozen and a dozen of them on the air. So I’ve usually found development not worth worrying about until shows are actually ordered to series and scheduled. That said, it’s been tough to ignore this fall’s development season, where it seems like every day for the past few weeks, my Twitter feed has blown up a few times an afternoon with news of a familiar movie or TV property being adapted »

"To have Big Bang be our lead-in is going to be really exciting," she told Et. "It's going to be a great one-two punch right there."

We should have known Marvel Studios wouldn't let their bitter rival stay on top for long. Warner Bros and DC last week announced their upcoming slate, which includes the long-awaited Wonder Woman movie, and yesterday (October 28) came Marvel's counter-move.

In the kind of bravura unveiling many were disappointed not to see at Comic-Con this summer, the studio announced no fewer than nine new titles and release dates going all the way through to 2019 – five of them sequels, four of them new standalone projects – and got Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans up on stage to introduce Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.

Below, Digital Spy runs down the must-know basics about each of Marvel's upcoming titles.

Daniel Radcliffe Is an Amazing Rapper

28 October 2014 9:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Turns out Chris Pratt isn’t the only beloved franchise star who knows his way around some late-'90s hip-hop. As Daniel Radcliffe explained on Fallon tonight, he has an "obsession with memorizing complicated, lyrically intricate and fast songs,” after which he proceeded to rap the entirety of the very intricate, very fast "Alphabet Aerobics" by Blackalicious. He does not stammer once. It is amazing. »

Meet Marvel’s Black Planther: Chadwick Boseman

28 October 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After breaking out as Jackie Robinson and James Brown in “42” and “Get On Up,” Chadwick Boseman has a new high-profile role to play: T’Challa, otherwise known as the superhero Black Panther.

Created by Stan Lee with Jack Kirby, the character is notable for being the first black superhero in mainstream American comicbooks.

The king of the fictional nation of Wakanda, T’Challa joined the Avengers in 1968. He will be prominently featured in “Captain America: Civil War,” May 6, 2016, before being spun off into his own film on Nov. 3, 2017.

Wakanda has the world’s largest deposits of vibranium, a highly durable meteoric ore that is used to create the mesh in Black Panther’s costume and Captain America’s shield. The material will play a larger role in future Marvel movies.

But so will Black Panther, a character that has long been in Marvel’s plans as a potential franchise »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Moves to May 2017

28 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We can all settle down for about 5 minutes, as both DC and Marvel have now revealed there full plans until the end of this decade. And suffice it to say, there are a lot of superheroe movies coming our way, featuring old faces and new. One of the most anticipated upcoming releases is Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which was given a new release date during Marvel's special live event held earlier today in Hollywood.

A little over four months ago, Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a very risky move by the studio. It was an untested franchise with characters that were unfamiliar to most of the American populace. Now, it is the biggest movie of the year and a beloved fan favorite. Audience can't wait to return to this world, and their wait just got a little bit shorter.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was originally supposed to arrive on »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Release Date Moved Forward

28 October 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After the huge success of Guardians Of The Galaxy this year, fans didn’t have to wait to hear about a sequel, as it’d already been announced. Mere days before the ragtag group of loveable misfits hit the big screen, James Gunn revealed at Comic-Con that he’d back writing and directing Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.

Attached to that original announcement was the film’s release date, scheduled for July 28th, 2017. However, today’s major Marvel phase three reveal has shortened the wait for fans to see Star-Lord’s return, as that July 2017 date has now been nabbed by the third solo Thor flick, Thor: Ragnarok. Guardians 2 will now make its debut two and half months earlier, on May 5th, 2017.

Much like the Comic-Con reveal, James Gunn appeared via video to break the news, dropping the previously-seen title card with the new date scribbled on top. There was »

7 More Mega Movie Franchises Benedict Cumberbatch Should (Be Rumored to) Join

28 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Now that Benedict Cumberbatch is likely to lead Doctor Strange and thereby join the Avengers and Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s on a roll as far as conquering all of Hollywood’s biggest franchises. Really, he’s only been in a few so far: The Hobbit, Star Trek and soon enough Madagascar. That’s it unless we hold on to the hope that War Horse can still spawn its own mega-series of various animal stories set during World War I. Cumberbatch had been rumored for Star Wars, and eventually he’s sure to be in at least one of the 20 or 50 they’re currently planning to produce. Like many fans, I’m also still waiting for a necessary Sherlock/Doctor Who crossover, but those aren’t movie franchises — yet. Not since Hugo Weaving has there been such promise of a multi-franchise movie star such as this. And Cumberbatch is more of a leading man than Weaving and »

Contender Conversations, Animation: ‘Boxtrolls,’ ‘Dragon 2′ and ‘Lego Movie’

28 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Boxtrolls

Oregon-based Laika is heading into awards season with the stop-motion “The Boxtrolls.” Having earned Oscar nominations for its first two efforts, “Coraline” (2009) and “ParaNorman” (2012), the studio is aiming to remain on a roll. Producer (and Laika CEO) Travis Knight (in photo above center) was joined by directors Anthony Stacchi (left) and Graham Annable (right) in a talk with Variety’s Andrew Barker for a Q&A at the Variety Screening Series on September 18.

“Boxtrolls” unfolds in an underground world with a large cast of eccentrics, including a grotesque character voiced by Ben Kingsley. The film required elaborate character choreography — a daunting challenge for animators engaged in the labor-intensive process of stop-motion. Stacchi admitted: “The most difficult sequence was one that Graham and I weren’t aware was going to be difficult. We believed that a big mecha-drill-attack at the end of the film would involve the most effects and require the most difficult animation. »
