Glenn Hauman: Is Binge-Reading Bad For Comics?

5 July 2017 5:24 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

On a whim the other day, I decided to go re-read some old Warlock comics.

It was an extremely mind-blowing experience, and not for the usual reasons when reading Warlock.

The issues blurred by in a smear— or maybe that was the old crappy printing. The seams in the stories were much more visible than I remembered. Things that seemed deep and profound just came off as silly and obvious. Even Adam Warlock himself, instead of being the tormented golden child trying to find his place in the universe, sounded and acted like a whiny brat.

Why? What happened? Was this book hit by the suck fairy?

No, that wasn’t it. It was because I was taking it in waaaay too fast. These books were simply not designed to be consumed one after the other so quickly.

You may have noticed this phenomenon yourself.

What Is Magneto Doing in X-Men: Dark Phoenix?

3 July 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was confirmed last month that the highly-anticipated X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back the primary X-Men: Apocalypse cast, and today we have even more details about one of these iconic characters, Michael Fassbender's Magneto. While these details have yet to be confirmed, the latest report teases that Magneto may be leading a cult in this superhero adventure, which will be set in the 1990s. This will also lead to a drastic change in his costume for Dark Phoenix, and while we may have to wait some time for these details to be confirmed, there is a precedent of Magneto leading a cult in the Marvel comics.

Nerdist reports that Michael Fassbender will have a new costume that, "is meant to suggest the imagery commonly associated with cult leaders". While no specific details were given regarding the new look Michael Fassbender will be sporting in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the »

New Mutants Replaces Rosario Dawson with Alice Braga

29 June 2017 9:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a month after Rosario Dawson entered talks to play Dr. Celia Reyes in 20th Century Fox's The New Mutants, the actress has backed out of the role, with Alice Braga stepping in to replace her. No reason for Rosario Dawson's departure was given, but with production slated to begin next month in Boston, it's easy to see why a replacement was found so quickly. It hasn't been confirmed how many other roles still need to be filled as we get closer and closer to production getting under way.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this casting update, with Alice Braga joining an ensemble that already includes a talented cast of youngsters. Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams plays Wolfsbane, with Split star Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, 13 Reasons Why star Henry Zaga as Sunspot, Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton as Cannonball and The Originals star Blu Hunt as Mirage. »

‘New Mutants’: Alice Braga Replaces Rosario Dawson as Dr. Cecilia Reyes

29 June 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alice Braga has joined Fox and Marvel’s X-Men spinoff, “New Mutants,” replacing Rosario Dawson in the role of Dr. Cecilia Reyes.

Dawson was in talks last month for the role. Dr. Cecilia Reyes serves as a mentor for the superheroes and her character has the ability to generate an invisible bio-field around herself.

“New Mutants,” created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, was the first X-Men comic spinoff, launched in the early 1980s. The “New Mutants” movie is in pre-production and has been set for an April 13, 2018, opening. “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone is helming “New Mutants” from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee about teenage superheroes-mutants.

Simon Kinberg and Karen Rosenfelt are producing. Fox announced in April that it was dating three Marvel movies for 2018 — “New Mutants” for April 13, “Deadpool 2” for June 1, and “Dark Phoenix” for Nov. 2.

Braga, a Brazilian actress who stars in USA’s “Queen of the South,” joins »

Kevin Feige Has Discussed Bringing Captain Britain To The McU

28 June 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The McU has come a long way since its release of Iron Man in 2008. On the big and small screen we have seen the likes of The Avengers, Ant-Man, The Guardians of the Galaxy and other Marvel characters we grew up only seeing in comics and cartoons. One of the biggest hurdles that Marvel has had to overcome is the fact that they don't own the rights to all their characters including one of their most popular characters, Spider-Man. Thanks to a partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios, Spider-Man was featured in Captain America: Civil War and now Iron Man will be featured in Spider-Man: Homecoming. To talk about the upcoming Spider-Man film Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President and Amy Pascal, former Sony Pictures head, sat down with Stefan Pape of HeyUGuys. During the interview the topic of other characters being brought into the McU was brought up and an interesting name came up, »

It Sounds Like X-Men Spinoff Gambit Is Still A Priority For Fox

31 May 2017 3:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Originally set to be released in October 2016 – yes, we’re telling the truth – Gambit has been stuck in development hell for quite some time now. While the movie wasn’t on the wishlist of many X-Men fans, a treatment written by comic book scribe Chris Claremont and a lead star in the form of Channing Tatum pointed to big things for the spinoff.

Since then, however, the project has lost a couple of directors, not to mention a few release dates and it now appears as if we can forget about Gambit ever happening. Right? Well, maybe not. X-Men producer Hutch Parker made it clear in a recent interview that there’s still very much an interest at Fox in making this long-delayed movie a reality – though he’s unable to offer any firm updates on it.

“It is happening. It is. I don’t have any news on that »

"X-Men: The New Mutants" Movie Updates

25 May 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

The latest Fox "X-Men" movie spin-off will be the PG-13 rated "X-Men: The New Mutants" based on the Marvel Comics series "New Mutants", to be directed by Josh Boone ("The Fault In Our Stars"):

"Held in a secret facility against their will, five new 'mutants' have to battle the dangers of their powers, as well as the sins of their past. They aren’t out to save the world — they’re just trying to save themselves."

"We are making a full-fledged horror movie set within the 'X-Men' universe," said director Boone.

"There are no costumes. There are no super-villains. We’re trying to do something very, very different." 

Regarding which "New Mutants" comic the movie will adapt, Boone confirmed:

"We had loved Bill Sienkiewicz’s run with Chris Claremont that had 'Demon Bear'. It was really dark, interesting, and different from the typical 'X-Men' stories that we had read. »

Russell Crowe Comes Clean On Why He Turned Down Playing Wolverine

19 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

What if Hugh Jackman hadn't played Wolverine? Would that have been the darkest timeline? 2000's initial X-Men film was not the first attempt to get that franchise off the ground, and as a result many actors where considered over the years for the role of Logan. When the project was in development in 1989, Wolverine writer Chris Claremont wanted Bob Hoskins for the role. Keanu Reeves, Viggo Mortensen, and Dougray Scott were all considered for the 2000 iteration. And in the late '90s, Russell Crowe basically had the job. 

Crowe was reportedly a front-runner for the part, but turned down the role for reasons he gave on Nova's Fizty and Wippa radio show, reports News.Com:

“Bryan [Singer, X-Men director] was a friend at the time and he was really putting the pressure on... If you remember, Maximus has a wolf at the centre of his cuirass, and he has a wolf as his »

"X-Men: Gambit" Movie Updates

12 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirms the Fox "X-Men" movie spin-off "Gambit" is moving forward with actor Channing Tatum locked in to play Marvel Comics mutant superhero:

"I think the truth is when you have these movies that need a very special and unique tone, it takes a little while to find that tone," said "Gambit" co-producer Simon Kinberg

"'Deadpool' feels like it exploded out of nowhere but it was a ten-year development process on that movie. I think it was honed over those ten years. I hope that 'Gambit' doesn’t take ten years but it takes a little honing to get that tone and that voice exactly right. 

"The character has such a specific voice in the comic in the same way that Deadpool has a specific voice in the comic, that we want to make sure that we capture that voice on the page. »
