Remember when we brought you news that a resurrection of the series Firefly could happen if and only if Joss Whedon was involved? We have something similar to that news but bigger. Keanu Reeves said that he would 100% consider doing a fourth installment of The Matrix under one condition. Here’s what he said: The Wachowskis would have to be involved. They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not? People die, stories don’t. People in stories don’t. This is welcomed news
Keanu Reeves Will Agree to a Matrix 4 Under the Following Conditions »

Capping off a busy day for the Marvel camp, a series of behind-the-scenes pictures for Thor: Ragnarok have now surfaced online showcasing all-new aliens, otherworldly sets, and Chris Hemsworth leaping into action as the eponymous Norse God.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt For the Wilderpeople), Ragnarok is the third and final Marvel movie on course to release in 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first two – and it’ll herald the hotly-anticipated reunion of Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. But if Joss Whedon’s Avengers toyed with the idea of pitting the allies against one another all those years ago, by tapping into Greg Pak’s beloved Planet Hulk comic book, Thor: Ragnarok will take that bubbling rivalry and thrusting it smack bang in the middle of Sakaar’s gladiatorial arena. You’ll even get an early glimpse of that »

Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi western Firefly was cancelled in 2002 after only one season, but developed a massive following. Now, Fox says it is open to continuing the show. Fox Open To Rebooting Joss Whedon’S Firefly Following the first and only season of the show, the creators made a movie called Serenity in 2005 to tie up the loose […]

Marvel certainly doesn’t have a shortage of movies on their plate at the moment. This year alone, they’ve got Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok set for release, and that’s without mentioning the multiple other films in various stages of production. Yet, Black Widow remains curiously without her own starring vehicle, even though Johansson was 2016’s top-grossing starlet. Indeed, it’s a no-brainer, yet Marvel still doesn’t have Black Widow on their schedule. So, what gives?
According to Johansson herself, it’s a “timing” matter that’s preventing it from happening. In an interview with Total Film for next month’s Ghost in the Shell remake, Johansson discussed the long-promised project, believing it’s still very much possible.
I’ve talked to Kevin Feige about it. We’re creatively really compatible. I think we both agree that the character is right for a standalone, »

If you are a super sci-fi geek, loved Battlestar Gallatica or Star Trek: Deep Space 9, then you may have worshiped a "one year show" before it was cancelled called Firefly. I can say that I actually did not like the first two shows mentioned (please don't ignore everything I say going forth due to the Battlestar comment), but I was obsessed over Firefly. The show had great actors; Alan Tudyk was wonderful (check him out in Powerless), and the story was stellar. I was elated when Serenity was made for the big screen, but I was left wondering if the franchise would ever have a future.
As it turns out, according to Fox, there just may be a chance.

Fox brought The X-Files and Prison Break back for more episodes, which might have a few folks wondering if that means Firefly, an admittedly less popular show, could return as well. Creator Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi western only lasted one wonderful season on Fox, but the story continued with the 2005 film, Serenity. Could Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the remaining crewmembers […]

The X-Files, Prison Break, 24: Legacy – three once-dormant TV franchises that have each been given a new lease of life at Fox, to varying degrees of success. Will the network adopt a similar strategy for Firefly? Perhaps, but only if series creator and director Joss Whedon returns at the helm.
That was the resounding message coming out of last month’s Television Critics Association, when Rotten Tomatoes relayed various statements from Fox executives. And so, amid talk of the upcoming X-Men series, not to mention Prison Break‘s return in April, the network briefly touched on the status of Firefly, which has remained in stasis since being yanked off the airwaves in 2003. Sheer fan demand willed Serenity into existence two years later, but there’s been nary a mention of a potential reboot ever since.
Much of that comes down to Joss Whedon’s bustling slate, as he’s since »

Marvel is currently hard at work filming both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War in Atlanta, and while we probably won't see anything from the latter for some time, we were fortunate enough to receive our first look at one of the returning villains from the Ryan Coogler-directed feature late yesterday afternoon. Golden Globe-nominated actor Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes) was spotted on-set, reprising his role as the international smuggler/arms dealer Ulysses Klaue from Joss Whedon's 2015 blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron. The photos, which come to us from AtlantaFilming, aren't all that spoilery, but they do show him sporting some sort of blue glove, which may suggest he's found himself a new hand - or sonic-force blaster, that'll likely be a CGI creation - after his original one was unceremoniously chopped off by Ultron. The photographer also adds that Serkis was seen shooting scenes with Michael B. »

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.
Born in Beirut to a showgirl and a geologist, Reeves is also a rabid »
"...while the 'Black Widow' has been collecting information, her enemy has been collecting allies.
"Now 'Natasha' faces a full-scale invasion. But what is the target? And can Natasha shield it on her own?..."
Meanwhile "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon is still keen to return to the Marvel Studios fold, to direct a "Black Widow" solo feature, starring Scarlett Johansson, reprising her role as the deadly Russian female spy.
"I think that character really is very interesting and very earthbound," said Whedon, "so it’s the kind of action that I got to do less of with somebody like 'Thor' or 'The Vision'.
"When you get into your ‘Superman’ territory it’s harder to maintain the gritty action that the Russo brothers do so brilliantly and she’s got that kind of thing. »

Though it isn’t mentioned in the same breath as, say, Joss Whedon’s Firefly, the fact that Samurai Jack was pulled off Cartoon Network’s slate in 2004 before delivering a fitting conclusion to Jack’s saga is often cited as one of the biggest injustices in television.
In those intervening years, legendary animator and series director Genndy Tartakovsky consistently flirted with the possibility of revisiting the time-travelling warrior of old and now, thanks to an alliance between Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, Jack is finally – finally! – back, and it seems the years have not been kind to Tartakovsky’s greatest creation. Pegged for a premiere on March 11th, the fifth and final season of Samurai Jack takes place some 50 years after the events of season four. Haunted by a malevolent demon known as Aku, Jack finds himself trapped in a strange, mind-bending techno-dystopia, doomed to roam the land for all eternity on his lonesome. »

First introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during the tail-end of Joss Whedon’s Avengers all the way back in 2012, moviegoers are still waiting for Thanos to make his decisive move – that is, to wage war on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and their galactic allies.
Last we checked in on Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan, he was seen grappling with the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet vowing to take matters into his own mighty purple hands. According to Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige, Thanos’ defining moment is on the horizon (more on that later), just don’t expect Brolin’s galactic menace to feature in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. In line with previous reports, writer-director James Gunn has stressed that Thanos has no place in the spacefaring sequel, which seems to be more concerned with his warring daughters, Gamora and Nebula, than the Mad Titan himself.

If you’ve been perusing the shelves of your local comic book store, newsagent or supermarket over the past year or so, you may have noticed Eaglemoss’ Marvel Movie Collection, which presents a series of metallic resin figurines featuring the heroes and villains of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And now Eaglemoss has called in Veronica to deliver a Mega (and I do mean “mega” here) Special with the Hero Collector Hulkbuster Iron Man Armor, as seen in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Unlike the previous figurines in the Marvel Movie Collection, the Hulkbuster comes in at 1:12 scale (as opposed to 1:16 scale), and if you’ve seen the armor in action in Age of Ultron, you’ll realise this means we’re looking at a rather large piece indeed. The Hulkbuster measures 37cm in height, and weighs in at over 4kg. Now is probably a good time to reinforce your shelf! »

For a brief period of time there, all eyes were on Captain Marvel. With the announcement that Academy Award-winner Brie Larson would be playing Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, folks were all excited about the first female-centric superhero movie to come from Marvel Studios. There was even a period there where it seemed like there was a rumored candidate for a director for the movie every other week.
But then the trail went cold.
Fans have wondered what the hold up is, and why Captain Marvel suddenly fell off the radar. Wasn't Marvel Studios interviewing candidates steadily in the middle of 2016? Isn't there a script in place that enticed a rising star like Larson to sign on? What gives?!?
Well, according to a trusted reporter over at Variety, Marvel is in no rush to sign a director. Why? Because they're still tinkering the script, and because of the »

The last time we saw Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway together on the big screen, they were gearing up for a space date or something at the end of “Interstellar.” And now they’ve got a new project that will bring them back together, and while the name might make you think of Joss Whedon‘s big screen version of his beloved sci-fi “Firefly,” the actors have something much more Earth-bound in mind.

For her feature directorial debut, Marti Noxon goes deep. Her Sundance premiere “To the Bone” is based on her own experiences with eating disorders and recovery, framed around the darkly funny journey of a young anorexic named Ellen (Lily Collins) as she attempts a radical treatment that offers her what is likely her last chance at survival. (No, really, it’s funny.)
Noxon is already a major name in the television space, best known for writing and producing series such as the beloved “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (where she was mentored by Joss Whedon) and recent smash hit “UNreal.” She’s dabbled in film before, including penning scripts for Rick Rosenthal’s late-’90s romantic comedy “Just a Little Harmless Sex” and the 2011 remake of “Fright Night.” But she’s never done anything quite like “To the Bone.”

Watch out, Donald Trump — Det. Stabler is on your case. “Law & Order: Svu” alum Christopher Meloni eviscerated the new president on Tuesday, tearing into Trump over his plans to build a wall between the United States and Mexico. In a profanity-laced tirade, the actor referred to Trump as a “f—ing d—.” Also Read: Joss Whedon Under Fire After Comparing Ivanka Trump To A Dog The actor took pains to say that he was doing so “with all due respect.” “With all due respect – shut up u f—ing d—,” Meloni tweeted. “Ur damaged goods and only Putin and idiots and brown Nosers believe. »

Joss Whedon is in the doghouse with many social-media users, after comparing First Daughter Ivanka Trump to a dog. In a tweet published Tuesday, “The Avengers” director posted an image of Ivanka Trump’s husband, Jared Kushner, referring him to “a Voldemort in training.” And then he took it further, characterizing Ivanka as a “Pekingese.” Also Read: White House 'Fully Expects' the Press to Leave Barron Trump Alone “Hey, keep your eyes on this f-cking prize too.

The Avengers director, a vocal critic of Donald Trump, was tweeting about Jacob Kushner, Ivanka's husband and Trump's adviser. "Hey, keep your eyes on this f—ing prize too," Whedon wrote. "He's a Voldemort in training, & unlike the Pekingese he married under, can play the long game."
Some people responded to Whedon's tweets with additional criticisms of the president and Kushner, but others quickly leapt to the defense of Ivanka.
Hey, keep your eyes on this fucking prize too. »
