Avengers: Infinity War will mark the “final chapter” for some Marvel heroes

14 minutes ago

Next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel are set to serve as the culmination of everything we’ve seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, with Marvel suggesting we’ll be seeing a very different landscape in Phase Four as the focus shifts from some of the original Avengers towards the more recent additions to the McU.

Speaking to Joblo, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has confirmed that Infinity War will mark the “final chapter” for certain characters, although he refused to confirm or deny whether this would include Chris EvansCaptain America and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, instead deflecting the question by responding that: “We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so thats all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. »

Kevin Feige on Spider-Man, Sony’s spinoffs and the Marvel Cinematic Universe

30 minutes ago

With less than two weeks to go before Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is out on the promotional campaign for the Marvel and Sony-produced reboot, during which he’s been talking about the future of the wall-crawler within the McU and trying to clear up the status of Sony’s Spider-Spinoffs.

“Right now, Spidey is in the McU and it’s just Spidey. Civil War, Homecoming, we’ve already shot a lot of Tom Holland’s scenes in the upcoming Avengers films, and we’re just starting to solidify our plans for Homecoming 2 – we won’t call it that, whatever it is – which is exciting because it’ll be the first McU movie after untitled Avengers in 2019,” Feige tells Joblo. “It’ll be the way Civil War informed everything in Homecoming, those movies will launch him off into a very new cinematic universe at that point. »

Are Disney The Best People For Star Wars?

1 hour ago

Neil Calloway thinks the troubled Han Solo film proves Disney’s hearts aren’t in the right place…

So, with the news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have left the Han Solo movie, it’s time to ask if Disney really are the best people to move the Star Wars franchise forward.

Of course, films run into trouble all the time, and a studio as big as Disney wants to protect its investment, but it’s not the first time this has happened. There have been two Star Wars Anthology films, and both of them have had productions issues. First re-shoots and Tony Gilroy being drafted in to polish/rewrite on Rogue One, and now the directors departing this film. It doesn’t bode well at all. They got away with it with Rogue One, but it remains to be seen how much longer they’ll be able to »

Ridley Scott planning more Blade Runner sequels

2 hours ago

Having revisited the Alien franchise with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott is also making his return to the world of Blade Runner this year, serving as producer on the Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel Blade Runner 2049.

The film opens this October, and it seems that much like Alien, Scott isn’t content with just one more instalment, as he’s revealed to IGN that he’s already looking to expand the series with more sequels.

“I think that, you know what, George has always proved that. Of course there’s always something. George Lucas, you know, and the way he’s handled Star Wars has been spectacular. It’s what I’ve been trying to do to really evolve Alien, because in those days I wasn’t into making sequels, but now suddenly you realize, ‘Well, that’s stupid.’ I’ll use the word ‘duh’ again, right? You’d better get into sequels, »

Mark Wahlberg doesn’t think Michael Bay will quit Transformers franchise, Transformers 6 not yet plotted out

3 hours ago

Although Michael Bay has said on several occasions that Transformers: The Last Knight will mark his final outing in the Transformers franchise, this certainly isn’t the first time that Bay has suggested he was calling time on the series, and star Mark Wahlberg isn’t convinced that he won’t be back for the next instalment.

“It’s one of those things where Michael has built this entire universe right, and he will decide what he wants to do and how he wants to do it,” Wahlberg tells Comic Book. “Right now he says he doesn’t want to do another film and he says that after every film because they are so difficult to make and he pretty much has to do it single-handedly, even with all the help that he has because all of the movie is in his mind. So he’ll decide that and I »

Jar Jar Binks lobbies Ron Howard for role in the Han Solo Stars Wars spinoff in latest Funny or Die video

4 hours ago

Earlier in the week it was announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller had been fired from the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film due to creative differences. Essentially, they had gone way too far down the comedic route, which honestly should have been expected when they were hired, but I digress.

Everyone on the Internet has an opinion and they’re letting it be known on the news that Ron Howard will be taking over directorial duties on the project. And now, in a new Funny or Die video, an anonymous being that is totally not Jar Jar Binks is asking us to give the director a chance. This unknown person also thinks this movie is the perfect opportunity to bring back Jar Jar Binks. Check out the hilarity below…

Watch the trailer for Albert Pyun’s Interstellar Civil War

5 hours ago

A trailer has arrived online for Interstellar Civil War, the 54th film from cult director Albert Pyun (The Sword and the Sorcerer, Cyborg).

“I was always curious about the behind the scenes aspect of the power of a space opera,” states Pyun. “My idea was to make a Sci-Fi Galactic version of Lion in Winter or A Man for All Seasons. To explore the human perspective behind all the war and mayhem in a futuristic galactic Empire sounded fascinating. I was influenced by some of the great historical films of the 60’s, 70’s, and 90’s, particularly Ridley Scott’s director’s cut of Kingdom of Heaven. I thought that a rebellion and crisis that erupts in the all-powerful Imperial Galaxy was an excellent basis to study the underlying politics in a real way and the terrible cost of a conflict, any conflict, actually. I wanted the movie to explore how »

Titan to launch its new Fighting American series on Joe Simon’s birthday

10 hours ago

Back in April it was announced that Titan Comics is resurrecting the classic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby comic book Fighting American for a brand new series, and now the publisher has announced that the first issue will arrive on October 11th, 2017 – the date of Joe Simon’s birthday. Take a look at the cover to the first issue from Terry Dodson and Rachel Dodson here…

First published in May 1954 and originally written and drawn by two of the greatest names in the history of comics, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Fighting American was the embodiment of the homegrown, god-fearing, patriotic, apple pie-eating American superhero.

Where Simon and Kirby’s other patriotic hero, Captain America, socked it to the Nazis in World War II, Fighting American brought square-jawed justice to “the Commies” and villains such as Double Header, Hotsky Trotsky, and Round Robin!

Throughout their long partnership, Simon and Kirby »

Wonder Woman becomes highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director

14 hours ago

Having become the first female filmmaker to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million, and the first to have a movie debut with a domestic opening weekend of $100 million, Patty Jenkins has now added another feather to her cap with Wonder Woman’s latest box office milestone.

The DC blockbuster has now reached $615 million worldwide, meaning it has overtaken 2009’s Mamma Mia! to become the highest-grossing live-action movie from a female director. The overall record is currently held by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and the animated film Kung Fu Panda 2 on $665 million, which Wonder Woman will likely overtake in the coming weeks (it should also be pointed out that Jennifer Lee co-directed Frozen with Chris Buck, and then went on to gross $1.2 billion).

Domestically, Wonder Woman has already surpassed Man of Steel’s $291 million, and is looking to finish the weekend with around $319 million, meaning it is fast approaching »
