42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Simon Kinberg confirms that Deadpool movie will be part of the shared X-Men universe

4 October 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month 20th Century Fox announced that it has finally given the go-ahead to Deadpool, director Tim Miller’s long-gestating solo movie for the Merc with the Mouth, which is set to hit theaters in February 2016. Obviously Deadpool will skip over the events of Deadpool’s last outing in the retconned-out-of-existence X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but X-Men: Days of Future Past writer-producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that it will still be part of the studio’s wider X-Men universe.

“There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now and Deadpool obviously fits into that,” Kinberg tells ComicBook. “So yeah, I guess I would say it’s part of certainly an overall timeline and thought process that goes into these films, some of which is inspired by the comics and some which is inspired by seeing what Marvel’s done with »

Chloë Moretz Says ‘Kick-Ass’ 3 Is Dead, Blames Piracy

25 August 2014 11:49 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass wasn’t a huge success at the box office, it made enough money – with the help of Blu-ray and DVD sales – to warrant a sequel from director Jeff Wadlow. Alas, the sequel made even less money, and the reviews and fan reception were far less kind than they were for the original, which made a Kick-Ass 3 movie … well, unlikely.

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. – the creators of the comic book on which the Kick-Ass films are based – recently talked about the likelihood of a second sequel coming to fruition. Now, star Chloë Moretz (the actress who played Hit-Girl) is weighing in, too.

‘Sin City 2′ Bombs at Friday Box Office, ‘Guardians′ Will Be Back on Top

23 August 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” was left battered and bruised on Friday at the domestic box office, while “Guardians of the Galaxy” will likely skyrocket back up top, eking out Friday’s victor “If I Stay” by Sunday.

The retro-noir, budgeted between $60 million and $70 million, came in sixth on Friday behind the sports drama “When the Game Stands Tall,” with $2.6 million. It’s on track for dismal $7 million this weekend — less than half the $15 million projected sum.

The sequel comes almost a decade after The Weinstein Co. stuck gold with the original pic. “Sin City” debuted to $29.1 million in 2005 on its way to a $74.1 million domestic total ($158.8 million worldwide). Nine years is evidently too long of a gap in between films for audiences, especially since the franchise no longer has critical support. This second installment earned a 43% fresh rating on the Rotten Tomatoes, while “Sin City” garnered 78%.

‘Kick-Ass’ Comicbook Creator on ‘Kick-Ass 3′: ‘It’s Definitely Up in the Air’

10 August 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Is Kick-Ass looking at a three-peat? According to Mark Millar, the creator of the comicbook series on which the movies are based, it’s all still up in the air.

The Matthew Vaughn-directed 2010 “Kick-Ass” was a huge surprise hit, recruiting Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the unlikely titular superhero and Chloe Grace Moretz as the ferocious Hit-Girl. It brought in nearly $100 million at the box office on a tiny $28 million budget and, according to Millar, earned $140 million on DVD sales.

Kick-Ass 2,” in 2013, however, failed to impress as much as its predecessor, even with new cast addition Jim Carrey and director Jeff Wadlow (“Never Back Down”), so prospects of a three-quel are unclear, as Millar recently explained to Comic Book Resources.

“The second one didn’t make as much.” he said. “It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. »

Mark Millar ‘Doesn’t Know’ If ‘Kick-Ass 3′ Will Get Made

9 August 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

The 2010 film Kick-Ass seemed like a refreshing twist on the superhero genre at the time. Based on Mark Millar’s ultra-violent comic book series and directed by Matthew Vaughn, it followed the titular hero, a kid named Dave Lizewski (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), who decided to take down criminals despite a lack of training or super powers.

The 2013 follow-up Kick-Ass 2 was directed by Never Back Down helmer Jeff Wadlow and saw Kick-Ass team up with the now-teenaged Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) to join forces with other superheroes like the deranged Col. Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). While we liked it well enough, the sequel failed to hit the same box office stride ...

'Kick-Ass 3' Is Not Moving Forward at This Time

8 August 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Kick-Ass hit theaters in 2010, plans for a sequel were already under way, since it made just under $100 million worldwide from a $28 million production budget. The follow-up Kick-Ass 2 didn't do quite as well, though, earning just over $60 million worldwide from a $24 million budget, leaving the future of the franchise in question.

Mark Millar, who co-created the comic book series with John Romita Jr., revealed in a new interview with Comic Book Resources that he isn't quite sure if Kick-Ass 3 will happen or not.

"I can tell you exactly where we're at. I'm always 100% straight up with these things -- to the point where I'm always revealing stuff two or three years before it's supposed to get out. I know I told you immediately after we got the first weekend after Kick-Ass came out that we were doing Kick-Ass 2. And (Kick-Ass director) Matthew (Vaughn had engaged (Kick-Ass 2 director »

Mark Millar says he’s had no discussions with Matthew Vaughn about Kick-Ass 3 movie

8 August 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Marvel imprint Icon released issue #8 of Kick-Ass 3, bringing to a close the cult comic book series from writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita, Jr., and Comic Book Resources managed to nab an interview with the creators, during which Millar was asked about the chances of the latest series making it to the big screen.

“I can tell you exactly where we’re at,” states Millar. “ I know I told you immediately after we got the first weekend after Kick-Ass came out that we were doing Kick-Ass 2. And Matthew Vaughn had engaged Jeff Wadlow by the following September, but no official announcement was made until the following year. But what you can always do is look at the opening box office to see how much money it’s going to take in and see what the development possibilities will be. With Kick-Ass, it was a no brainer. »

Comic Writer Mark Millar Reveals the Status of Kick-Ass 3

8 August 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass (based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s comic book) was a surprise hit back in 2010, though anyone who had read the series already knew that a big screen adaptation had the potential to be something special in the hands of the man responsible for the likes of Layer Cake and Stardust.

While Jeff Wadlow’s sequel wasn’t quite as well received either critically or commercially, it was a fun movie which put him on the radar, and he has since been linked to the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe remake and X-Force, a spin-off about a team of mutants who do the jobs too dirty for the X-Men.

The third and final volume of the comic book version of Kick-Ass came to an end this week, and it’s been met with a very positive response as Kick-Ass and Hit Girl’s stories reached their conclusion. »

5 (Mostly) Surprising No-Shows at Sdcc 2014

28 July 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Quick as it came, the San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us.  While there was plenty of things shown at the event for fans to digest, there were some notable absences as well this year.  Rumors had been swirling for months about what would be showcased, and now that the event’s over I was surprised at some of the no-shows.  

I can’t honestly say I’m disappointed that these things below didn’t make an appearance at Sdcc.  We got some awesome stuff, and saw more on some projects than anyone expected (Mad Max, Batman v. Superman teaser, Godzilla 2).  Still, I can’t help but feel a little saddened, if only because I’m looking forward to some of these so much.  It’s important to take this article as such.  It’s not meant to be negative, nor do I feel like Sdcc was a “failure” (as »

Channing Tatum Talks Gambit’s Movie Costume and Origins

6 June 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

With X-Men: Days of Future Past entering its third weekend in theaters worldwide, after having already broke the franchise’s box office record – earning $500 million in its first nine days – buzz is as high as ever for the mutant superhero franchise and its future. Twentieth Century Fox, banking heavily on the financial and critical success of the latest X-Men team-up, had already planned a followup for 2016 (X-Men: Apocalypse) as well as another Wolverine movie the following year – but that’s not all the producers are planning.

In addition to having a screenplay ready to go for a long-in-development Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Tim Miller, and a script in the works by Jeff Wadlow for an X-Force movie, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been in talks with Channing Tatum about bringing him into the franchise ...

X-Force Plans Changed By X-Men: Apocalypse, Says Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You won’t find that many X-Men fans who were disappointed by Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, last month’s fantastic, time-travelling series update. However, that could change now that X-Force creator Rob Liefeld is saying the success of that film – and the quick green-lighting of follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – has put a monkey wrench in Fox’s plans to bring X-Force to the big screen.

Monday, Liefeld responded to a fan question about the status of an X-Force movie by tweeting the following:

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced… Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What’s new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

When a knowledgeable fan responded to that answer by asking whether that meant the upcoming film would include Cable, the leader of X-Force, Liefeld tweeted:

No! No knowledge at all Rt @TheAceOfKnaves: @robertliefeld @actionscomics are you inadvertently admitting Cable is gonna be in Apocalypse? »

X-Men: Apocalypse derails X-Force film, says creator Rob Liefeld

3 June 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rob Liefeld has hinted that X-Men: Apocalypse has derailed plans for an X-Force film.

The writer-artist, who created the Cable-led mutant team in the '90s, tweeted that plans have changed at 20th Century Fox following the announcement of the X-Men: Days of Future Past follow-up.

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced... Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What's new?

— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) June 2, 2014

He added that he does not know whether Cable - the time travelling son of Cyclops - will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, but added that it was "hard to believe he won't".

Cable's origin is tied closely to that of the villain Apocalypse.

Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow has been writing the X-Force script, which Liefeld has previously praised.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is out now. X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled for release on May 27, 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse may have scuppered plans for X-Force movie

2 June 2014 10:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fox is pressing ahead with X-Men: Apocalypse for 2016 - but does that mean the X-Force movie is less likely to happen?


With X-Men: Days Of Future Past notching up record box office for the X-Men movie franchise, 20th Century Fox is understandably wanting to capitalise on its success by pushing ahead with more films. Thus, we're getting a new Wolverine sequel, a Gambit standalone film, and before both of those, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Apocalypse is set to mainly feature the First Class cast, so it'll be led by James McAvoy. But Fox's decision to push ahead so soon with the film (it's due in summer 2016) may have damaged the chances of the mooted X-Force movie making it to the big screen.

X-Force was created by Rob Liefeld, and it had been revealed last year that a film project was in development, with Kick-Ass 2's Jeff Wadlow directing. But as Liefeld noted over Twitter, »

"X-Force" Film Delayed By "Apocalypse"

2 June 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In July last year came reports that 20th Century Fox had begun actively developing an "X-Force" movie. Jeff Wadlow ("Kick-Ass 2") signed on to write the screenplay and direct with an early script handed in which Rob Liefeld, creator of the "X-Men" spin-off comic series, really liked.

Things were looking rosy for the project - and then "X-Men: Apocalypse" was announced a few months back. Now, Liefeld hinted on Twitter this week that the announcement of that third film with the "X-Men: First Class" cast effectively stalled development of the "X-Force" film.

"Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced" he said, responding to a fan asking if there was any new information on the "X-Force" movie. Asked if there will even be an "X-Force" movie he responded "Coin toss I'd wager".

The original "X-Force" lineup in the comics was Boom Boom, Cable, Cannonball, Deadpool, Domino, Feral, Shatterstar and Warpath. Of those, »

'X-Force' Delayed by 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

After 14 years, 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise is still going strong, with the latest installment, X-Men: Days of Future Past, earning over $500 million worldwide since its release over Memorial Day weekend. The studio is already moving forward with the next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse, although that project could have a negative impact on another comic book adaptation, X-Force. Rob Liefeld, who created the X-Force comic books, hinted on his Twitter page this morning that X-Men: Apocalypse disrupted the development of X-Force, and that he isn't sure if X-Force member Cable will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Everything changed when X-Men Apocalypse was announced... Rt @actionscomics: @robertliefeld and the movie of x-force? What's new?

Hugh Jackman Wants To See A Wolverine vs. Deadpool Movie

22 May 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, it’s safe to say that Deadpool’s inclusion in the ill-fated and universally-hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine still has fans of the character upset, especially since that solo Deadpool movie we’ve been hearing about for the last few years continues to collect dust on some Fox executive’s shelf. Last we heard, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner was still interested in bringing the character back to the big screen, and listed the film as one of several potential spinoffs in the future.

Now, longtime X-Men franchise star Hugh Jackman has chimed in, giving his thoughts on bringing Wolverine and Deadpool together again on the silver screen. While doing press for X-Men: Days of Future Past, he talked to IGN and agreed with some of the criticisms, and said that he wants to get it right next time:
