The Craziest Thing About Tim Burton's Canceled Superman Project

14 hours ago

Long before Zack Snyder resurrected Superman from the ashes for Man of Steel, Tim Burton came dangerously close to bringing his own spin on Kal-El for a project known as Superman Lives. One of the many drafts for Superman Lives was written by Dan Gilroy, a talented screenwriter who.s currently making the rounds promoting his directorial debut . the spectacular Nightcrawler. But what would his Superman story have been like? He finally explains. Dan Gilroy spoke about his draft for Superman Lives with IndieWire, and says that the major difference he would have brought to the story was "therapy." According to his take, Kal-El never tells his son, Jor-El, where he came from. So we have this man on Earth with superhuman powers (who would have been played by Nicolas Cage), but no idea where they came from. As Gilroy explains it: His biggest fear is that he's an alien. »

The Reason Why DC Waited Years To Try And Create A Universe

15 hours ago

While Marvel Studios has been building their cinematic universe since 2008, it wasn.t until last year that DC Comics started working on theirs. While they did release several films between 2008 and 2013, such as the box office powerhouse The Dark Knight and the critical flop Green Lantern, Man of Steel was their first entry of the DC Cinematic Universe, and we won.t be revisiting this world until the 2016 release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. With that in mind, why did DC and Warner Bros. take so long to start building this gigantic franchise? It turns out they wanted someone specific to lead the charge, but this person wasn.t interested. While running an extensive article about director Christopher Nolan.s projects (in anticipation of the release of Interstellar), The Wall Street Journal briefly mentions Nolan.s connection to the more recent DC Comics films. Pointing out that retaining »

That.s the new theory born of Kathy Bates. confession that the actresses in Tammy shared "some good shit" while filming the comedy. even if they might not have inhaled. (Wink, wink.) The pot-smoking-gun was dropped during a "Plead the Fifth" segment on Bravo.s Watch What Happens Live, hosted by Andy Cohen.

Spider-Man: The Crazy Plan Sony May Have To Save The Franchise

17 hours ago

Financially, the Amazing Spider-Man film series is still going strong (relatively speaking), but creatively it.s had a bumpy ride.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was delayed until 2018, the villain ensemble Sinister Six was bumped up to November 2016 and Sony may be trashing the Venom spinoff. There have even been rumblings that Andrew Garfield may be replaced as Peter Parker in Sinister Six. Whatever is truly happening, it.s clear Sony is scrambling to pick up the pieces, but now they may have a project in the works that will not only save the franchise, but put them in the spotlight.

American Hustle Is Being Sued Over This Throwaway Line

18 hours ago

It.s not unusual for Hollywood producers to face claims of libel, copyright infringement or defamation over their movies. Remember when the makers of Frozen were accused of ripping off a woman.s life story? Yeah, nice try. Now in the land of Hollywood litigation, the white collars behind American Hustle are being sued by a well-known science writer over a contentious line uttered by Jennifer Lawrence's Jersey housewife character, Rosalyn, involving the "science oven." In a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Paul Brodeur petitions that by attributing him to a "scientifically unsupportable statement," the filmmakers have scorched his reputation in the scientific community like oh-so-many of Rosalyn.s flame grilled easy dinners. "The scene from the movie American Hustle where the defamatory statement was made is highly offensive to a reasonable person," he states as the complaint seeks damages for libel, defamation, slander and false light. »

Arrow Star Stephen Amell Is Not Happy About The Flash Casting

18 hours ago

The DC Cinematic Universe is a strange beast, at the moment. While Zack Snyder tries to prepare a movie audience for the arrival of The Justice League, members of that group are thriving on television screens across the nation on a weekly basis. Will there be brand confusion when it comes to a character like The Flash once DC and Warner Bros. try to roll out a Flash movie that.s separate from the TV show? One member of that exclusive community sure thinks crossover should be happening, and soon. Stephen Amell plays Arrow on The CW show of the same name. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Amell stood up for his CW colleague, Grant Gustin, who plays Flash on the new television program. It recently was announced that We Need To Talk About Kevin star Ezra Miller would play the Flash in DC.s feature film »

This Interstellar Contest Has The Greatest Prize Imaginable

22 hours ago

Space was once considered "the final frontier," but as time passed after our initial forays to the Moon, we stopped looking up as much as we used to. It's sad to consider science fiction used to depict us traveling into space as a leisure activity by this point in our history, and now Interstellar has our future spelled out as a society that barely even gives the thought the time of day. However, if you're one of those dreamers who can't stop gazing at the stars, longing to be among them in all of their splendor, you have two choices: either pony up $100,000 for the experience, airfare, and transportation; or enter the contest we're about to give you the details on. Fandango is giving away entries to win one of those $100,000 trips into space, courtesy of Paramount, Xcor Aerospace, and Motherboard. All you have to do is fill out an »

Clerks III Is Coming, Here's What We Know

31 October 2014 4:53 AM, PDT

It's been nearly twenty years to the day since Kevin Smith made his theatrical debut with Clerks. And apparently the New Jersey born-and-raised director feels this is the perfect time to start dropping details on the long-teased Clerks III. Recently on Smith's podcast Smodcast (via Movie Pilot), he invited on Jeff Anderson, who played Randal Graves in Clerks, and the two got to talking about the evolving Clerks trilogy. After joking that Smith has touted all kinds of spin-offs for the indie film (including a Broadway play), Anderson said of Clerks III: "I like the script. It.s being introduced to these characters that are friends. Friends of mine. Friends of ours. Whether or not I was going to do the movie, I wanted to read the script. Just for closure for myself! Fuck the fans, I just wanna' know! Yeah, it.s a very different movie and that »

Jason Bateman's Next Comedy Will Go After Wall Street, The Stock Market

31 October 2014 4:15 AM, PDT

You hear "Wall Street comedy," and you might rightly think Wolf of Wall Street. But Jason Bateman is going in a totally different direction for his upcoming comedy Ipo Man. Deadline reports Jason Bateman will star in and direct Ipo Man, a comedy about a man who sold shares of stock in his own life. Remarkably, the film is based on a true story that was covered in a Wired article titled "Meet the Man Who Sold His Fate to Investors At $1 A Share." Fox Searchlight has bought the rights to the piece, and will produce alongside Bateman and his Aggregate partner, Jim Garavente. The real man behind this unusual story is one Mike Merill, who used a loophole in the Ipo language that is intended for stockholders to pay up for a cut of a person's future earnings. He offered up 100,000 shares in himself. 928 sold, mostly to friends and »

Teen Mom Farrah Abraham Dressed Up As Elsa To Sell Sex Toys

30 October 2014 9:16 PM, PDT

When you get to the level of success a movie like Frozen has attained, you're going to see your brand represented everywhere... whether you like it or not. Despite its actual form of a Disney kids' film, the internet hasn't let the innocence of Elsa and Anna's story of true sisterhood and emotion get in the way of a naughty roast. However, what we're about to show you is probably the most inappropriate usage of the Frozen iconography ever. Just when you thought that the Fifty Shades Of Grey mashup was the dirtiest thing you'd see involving a chilly Disney princess, along comes Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham to prove you dead wrong. Happy Place found some rather... adult themed tweets, all linked to a recent appearance by the reality star turned adult film actress. Apparently, she has a line of companionship substitutes that are modeled after certain portions of »

Listen To Ultron Ruin Other Classic Disney Lines

30 October 2014 6:50 PM, PDT

"There are no strings on me." That's all it took for James Spader's portrayal of Ultron in the upcoming film The Avengers: Age Of Ultron to become automatically internet famous. Be it his villainous tone, his intimidating visage, or the right Disney line at the right time; whatever factor you attribute it to, it did the trick. And to think, if it was any other Disney quote, it might not have worked. Or would it have? How It Should Have Ended took it upon themselves to do their first trailer version of their traditional web show, and bearing the honors is Ultron, replete with the classic Disney lines that your childhood was made up of. Apparently ruining Pinocchio wasn't enough, as Aladdin, The Lion King, and even Toy Story all have their turn to be Ultronized for the sake of laughter. To say that this was the end of »

Here's Why Marvel Is Still Beating DC In The Comic Book Movie Wars

30 October 2014 6:13 PM, PDT

October 2014 will go down in the geek history books as one of the biggest months for comic book movies thanks to DC and Marvel. Both companies announced their film plans for the next several years. For DC, this means finally diving into the DC Cinematic Universe and exploring characters that aren.t just Batman and Superman (though you.ll still be seeing a lot of them). For Marvel, it means we get to dive into Phase 3 with familiar faces and new characters. Overall this is a great time to be a comic book fan, but this is also a fanbase that likes to debate, and when it comes to movies, the common question that fans persistently argue amongst themselves is, "Who is winning the movie battle: Marvel or DC?" Well, that.s what I.m here to answer. Although each company has their positive and negative aspects, Marvel is still »

Why Al Pacino Wanted No Part Of The Godfather

30 October 2014 5:14 PM, PDT

Al Pacino has starred in an impressive number of brilliant, classic films, from Dog Day Afternoon to Serpico to Heat, but arguably the greatest role of his career was Michael Corleone in the Godfather films. But believe it or not, when he was first offered the job, the Oscar winning actor wanted no part of it. This fascinating behind-the-scenes story was told by Pacino in a recent interview with Loaded Magazine, the actor explaining not only that he never really wanted to be in The Godfather, but that he thought director Francis Ford Coppola was crazy for even considering the idea that he was the right choice. Admittedly, a big part of this was that nobody else at the studio actually wanted him to play the role either. Said Pacino, "No one wanted me. Except for Coppola who was, I thought, a bit mad. He just wanted me. Even I »

Hero Blend #40: Black Panther, Captain Marvel, And Marvel Studios' Incredibly Bright Future

30 October 2014 4:37 PM, PDT

There are weeks that I struggle to decide what the subject of Hero Blend should be. Do I check in to see what.s happening with the X-Men, or are the developments with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice more interesting? This week there was no struggle. This past Tuesday, Marvel Studios hosted a special presentation in downtown Hollywood, and used the venue to reveal an incredible number of incredible developments currently in the works at the company. Not only did we get confirmations of titles like Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Inhumans, but we even learned that The Avengers 3 will be a two parter called The Avengers: Infinity War and that Chadwick Boseman has been locked in to play Black Panther. It.s been an incredibly exciting week, and I couldn.t wait to talk about it on this week.s episode. Joining »

A Famed Hollywood Writer Just Slammed Robert Downey Jr. And Mark Ruffalo

30 October 2014 3:22 PM, PDT

Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo.s acting prowess has been criticized by crime writer, James Ellroy - but fans of The Avengers need not worry about the author slamming their favorite superhero movie. Instead the writer actually takes issue with their performances in David Fincher.s 2007 crime drama, Zodiac. As it turns out, Ellroy really hated the lead actors in that film Ruffalo and Downey Jr. played Inspector Dave Toschi and Paul Avery, respectively, in the delightfully meandering-yet-engrossing examination of the crimes of the Zodiac killer. And while James Ellroy has greatly supported the film in the past, having provided a commentary track on the DVD release and called it "one of the half-dozen greatest American crime films," it turns out that he really didn't care for the performances by Ruffalo, Downey Jr., or Jake Gyllenhaal (who played puzzle-loving cartoonist Robert Graysmith). Recently doing an interview with NPR, the »
