After revealing that the "Fantastic Four" reboot won't be at Comic Con this year, producer Simon Kinberg spoke to Latino Review about the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" and how it will tie into the bigger themes of the previous two X-Men films with the younger cast:
"We think about these X-Men movies as spread over – X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past to Apocalypse was imagined as a trilogy for us. It's the Origin stories in some ways of Charles, Raven, Hank and Eric and we will be settling things up in Apocalypse that will be generating new stories.
We look at it globally as to where to mutants fit into the world. That’s why we jump from the 60’s to the 70’s and now the 80’s. We really want to be able to track the progression of the world and where do mutants fit in that world. It’s »

Good non-Thanos Lord!

First up, happy National Batman Day.

This year's San Diego Comic-Con is going to be jam-packed with all kinds of huge comic book movie news. While nothing has been officially confirmed, fans around the world are expecting to hear big announcements from both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros./DC Comics, whom we expect to confirm new projects and perhaps even reveal a few new casting choices. Unfortunately, there is at least one 2015 superhero flick that we won't be seeing anything from at this year's big expo: Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Speaking with Latino-Review, producer/writer Simon Kinberg confirmed that next year's big Fantastic Four reboot will not have a presence at this year's Comic-Con - despite the fact that 20th Century Fox is hosting a panel this year in the San Diego Convention center's famous Hall H. Asked if fans can expect any kind of footage or big reveal, Kinberg said, "I can definitively »
Movie News - The new 'Fantastic Four' will be ''different from other comic book films''. Scriptwriter Simon Kinberg has promised the ambitious reboot of the superhero franchise will be unlike anything fans have seen in previous movies in the genre, such as 'The Avengers' and the 'X-Men' films. He told Latino-Review.com: ''We are hopefully going to be refining the way the people see the 'Fantastic Four' movies. There are so many things we are doing different from the previous film and so many things different from other comic books films.'' The Josh Trank-directed movie will be a stark departure from the critically mauled 2005 and 2007 'Fantastic Four' films which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans. The new take will star Kate Mara as Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and »
There's no official announcement, and some comments from actor Michael B. Jordan indicated it was unlikely. Now, producer Simon Kinberg has one and for all put to bed the speculation about Josh Trank's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot appearing at the San Diego Comic Con this week.
Kinberg tells Latino Review that the reason for the absence is purely one of practicality - they're still filming, on a very tight deadline, and there just isn't any material ready to show yet:
"No, I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from Fantastic Four at this year's Comic Con. We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don't want to show anything until it's ready and it's not ready yet.
We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we have got to wait until it's ready. »

We don’t know very much about Chappie, Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi follow-up to the instant classic District 9 and the somewhat underwhelming Elysium, but Comic-Con is giving us our first look at the movie with an intriguing poster. Collider provided the images, which you can check out below, shooting the dimly lit poster from multiple angles so as to give us the best possible idea of what it looks like.
Chappie centers on a robot with artificial intelligence (played by Sharlto Copley) who is kidnapped by two gangsters. Producer Simon Kinberg has tantalizingly referred to it as “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see,” though we won’t find out whether that’s actually the case for a little while. The poster is still fascinating, depicting the titular robot drawing a cartoon of his adopted family (doesn’t look like his father is a very nurturing figure though, »

Elysium was a solid follow up to the superb District 9, but Neill Blomkamp’s next film has the potential to be his best yet. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that Chappie will revolve an intelligent robot (played by Sharlto Copley through the magic of motion capture) who is stolen by two local gangsters.
The first poster for the movie has now been spotted on the floor of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and it gives us what appears to be our first look at the titular robot as well as some of his intriguing drawings.
Producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) has praised Chappie as being “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see,” and with a cast which also includes Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver, this could be one of 2015′s best movies in a year which is crowded with huge blockbusters. »

In a recent interview with Latino-Review, screenwriter Simon Kinberg talked in-depth about two of Fox's upcoming comic book movies, X-men: Apocalypse and Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four. Since most of you don't seem too thrilled about The Fantastic Four, we'll start with X-men stuff first. Simon Kinberg was asked to compare Fox's X-men movies to Marvel's phase structure. The answer is we really do think more broadly than one movie at a »

If you were hoping to get a first look at Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the Fantastic Four at Comic-Con this weekend, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck. The Josh Trank-directed reboot was absent from 20th Century Fox’s schedule for its Hall H presentation on Friday, and now writer / producer Simon Kinberg has stated categorically that Fox has no Fantastic Four surprise in store.
“I can definitively officially tell you that there will not be anything from The Fantastic Four at this year’s Comic Con,” Kinberg tells Latino-Review. “We are still very much in the middle of shooting and we don’t want to show anything until it’s ready and it’s not ready yet. We want the first stuff that we show from the film to really blow people away, and it will but we »

When Latino Review caught up with Simon Kinberg, who is helping Fox Studios to expand and establish its own Marvel Cinematic Universe with X-Men and Fantastic Four, the writer/producer discussed Marvel's First Family reboot as well as the 2016 X-Men: Apocalypse. "We think about these X-Men movies as spread over – X-Men: First Class, Days of Future Past to Apocalypse was imagined as a trilogy for us," he said, when asked if he sees the franchise being single narrative like Marvel Studios' different phases. "It’s the Origin stories in some ways of Charles, Raven, Hank and Eric and we will be settling things up in Apocalypse that will be generating new stories. We look at it globally as to where to mutants fit into the world. That’s why we jump from the 60’s to the 70’s and now the 80’s. We really want to be able to track »

San Diego Comic-Con is upon us once again, and what better way then to have an Exclusive chat with Simon Kinberg.
Kinberg and I spoke about all things going on with Fantastic Four (which is currently filming) and clear up some rumors spreading throughout the web, especially about the film coming to this year’s Comic-Con. He also speaks about where he sees the X-Men franchise going in the future and more.
Here is what he had to say:
Lr: So how’s it going with Fox and comic book movies that you are involved in?
Simon Kinberg: Good, really good actually! It’s a pretty great time to be making comic book movies at Fox I have to say. They »

Very little is known about District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp’s new film Chappie besides the fact that it revolves around a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters, and producer Simon Kinberg called it “the most provocative studio movie you’ll likely ever see.” Well it looks like Sony Pictures is ready to unveil this curious pic to the public, as the first look at the titular robot (played by Sharlto Copley) has been unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con by way of a Chappie poster banner. The film certainly looks to have a more darkly comedic tone than Blomkamp’s previous two features, and I’m really looking forward to seeing this thing in action in the near future. Moreover, the prospect of seeing Hugh Jackman stretch his comedy talents in an offbeat sci-fi comedy is highly enticing. Hit the jump to check out the Chappie poster, »

The team behind Star Wars Rebels is giving up just a little more material before their panel and that preview screening at San Diego Comic-Con. In addition to the footage we got in that full trailer back in May, this extended version adds a message from Obi-Wan Kenobi revealing that the Jedi Order and the Republic have fallen. However, that’s when a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) gets to step up. Not only does he have a flair for stealing from the Empire, but he’s also got the ability to tap into the Force without even knowing it. Check out what happens when Ezra teams up with Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and the rest of the crew aboard The Ghost in the Star Wars Rebels extended trailer after the jump. The show premieres on Disney Xd in the fall and also features the voices of Vanessa Marshall, »

Star Wars Rebels is the new upcoming animated series by the makers of the criminally-underrated Clone Wars TV series (along with Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg) – and it’s kind of a big deal. Not just because of the oft-hated animation style that Rebels has carried over from Clone Wars, but rather because Rebels (and its tie-in novel, A New Dawn) represents the first official new canon in the Star Wars saga shared universe.
Rebels takes place between the eras of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, helping to flesh-out the story of how The Republic’s fall and the Empire’s rise led to the beginning of the Galactic Rebellion. In previous Rebels previews, we’ve been introduced to the following rag-tag band of would-be rebels (Click any of their ...

Back in October, LucasFilm gave fans their first look at the new Star Wars Rebels villain The Inquisitor. Today, the studio reveals that Jason Isaacs is voicing The Inquisitor with a new behind-the-scenes featurette. LucasFilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo explains that, unlike classic villains such as Darth Vader and Darth Maul, The Inquisitor is not a Sith, but he does "tap into the Dark Side."
Executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg reveal that this new character went through several different iterations before deciding on his final look, and we also hear from Jason Isaacs, who says that his character's simple task is to find all of the remaining Jedi Knights.
Unlike many animated TV shows in the 1980s, where the villains were defeated every week, »
The upcoming reboot of the “The Fantastic Four” movie has been described by the screenwriter, Simon Kinberg as “real, gritty and grounded.” The writer/producer even said the Josh Trank-directed movie was akin to “Batman Begins.” Now if you know the original “Fantastic Four” movies with Chris Evans and Jessica Alba, you know those films are nothing like “Batman Begins.” They’re much more in line with the comic—a bit goofy, broad and silly (which is why Tim Story’s movies might be terrible, but they were in the spirit of the comics). So more and more, “The Fantastic Four” movie that 20th Century Fox is putting on for 2015 sounds like a massive reinvention. For one, Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch, won’t be a Caucasian, he’ll be played by African-American actor Michael B. Jordan. In a feature titled “How The 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Might Be Changing Canon, »
