Venom Spinoff Reportedly Set To Shoot This Fall, Classified As Horror/Sci-Fi

6 hours ago

Spider-Man has an impressive rogues gallery, but few of his enemies can match the monstrous Venom in ferocity. Controlled by a parasitic symbiote, Eddie Brock (the original Venom) harbors a hatred for Spidey that drives him to insanity, and it’s made him a great villain for the hero over the years.

The beast has appeared across all mediums, showing up in video games, a film and television as a prominent adversary for our favorite web-slinger. The character has also been the subject of spinoff discussion amongst Sony executives ever since Spider-Man 3 hit theaters in 2007, but complications arose and the planned Venom film fell into development hell.

Now, though, the project has finally been given the green light. Reportedly slated for an October 2018 release, the untitled film will supposedly begin shooting in fall 2017, and My Entertainment World lists the production as horror/sci-fi, which gives us a bit of »

Better Call Saul Season 3 Review

6 hours ago

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

For the third successive season, the premiere of Better Call Saul begins with a terrific, symbolically-rich cold open set after the events of this show’s parent series Breaking Bad, depicting its titular character working under the assumed name of ‘Gene’ at a Cinnabon as a fugitive from the law. Once again, the sequence is shot in black and white, emphasizing the blandness of his new life; once again it scored by a retro pop hit (this time Nancy Sinatra’s “Sugar Town”); and once again there is a threat of his cover being blown, when two policemen approach him to ask about a shoplifter.

This time, however, he’s unable to maintain his usual caution, as he blurts out almost unwillingly to the shoplifter as he’s escorted away: “Say nothing, you understand? Get a lawyer.” It’s a simple scene, but »

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 quickly approaching, and Spider-Man: Homecoming set to follow after that, it’s not too surprising that Marvel has been shying away from showing us too much of Thor: Ragnarok. After all, they’ve no doubt got their hands full with those two aforementioned films and given that the God of Thunder’s threequel isn’t set to drop into theatres until November, they’ve still got more than enough time to market it.

That being said, we did get a generous helping of official images courtesy of Entertainment Weekly not too long ago, which shed some light on the direction that helmer Taika Waititi is taking the film in. As far as we can tell, it looks quite different from what’s come before and that can only be a good thing, »

Deadpool 2/Spider-Man: Homecoming Posters 1 of 3

One of the best and most enjoyable relationships in comic books involves Spider-Man and Deadpool. The wall-crawler has teamed up with the Merc with a Mouth on multiple occasions and their love/hate dynamic has made for some very interesting reading over the years.

While fans would love to see the two side by side in live-action, it’s just not going to happen, especially as Marvel and Fox working together appears to be well outside the realm of possibility. Thankfully, then, a couple of very inventive fans have taken those new posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming and provided, well, an unexpected twist.

As you can see in the gallery above, Deadpool makes his presence felt by pushing Spidey into the water and off the side of Avengers Tower. Both posters are pretty damn funny »

Cinemaholics Episode #7: Justice League Trailer, Power Rangers Review

9 hours ago

This week on We Got This Covered’s Cinemaholics, hosts Jon Negroni and Will Ashton dig deep into the new Justice League trailer, then review the Power Rangers remake, among other big releases like Life, season 2 of Love, and season 1 of Shots Fired.

The show kicks off with Jon, Will, and Maveryke dusting off their impressions of the Superman-less Justice League trailer, noting a couple of revelations and discussing their individual baggage or lack thereof with the Dceu. The group then dives into this week’s featured review, and it seems that the Cinemaholics are somewhat divided on where they stand with Power Rangers, but one thing’s clear: A franchise is brewing.

For more, here are the links to everything that was discussed this week, as well as the show notes:

Deadpool 2 Writers Say No Movie Will Want To Compete With The Sequel’s Release Date

9 hours ago

The fact that Deadpool 2 doesn’t have a release date is surprising, to say the least. The first movie (which arrived in theatres last February) was a critical and commercial hit, and while a follow-up is definitely happening, we still don’t know when exactly it’s going to be with us.

Perhaps that’s because the sequel hasn’t had the easiest of rides. First, it lost director Tim Miller, and we’ve since heard conflicting reports about what’s happening with the script. Rumour has it that the film will be with us by 2018 though, and in a recent interview, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick made some bold claims about its release.

“We don’t want to put the cart before the horse, and often times with release dates that happens. You end up racing and you end up being forced to do something you’re »

Fan-Made Justice League Poster Finally Brings Green Lantern Into The Fold

9 hours ago

It’s been one heck of a week for fans of the DC Extended Universe. First, Warner Bros. released a series of character posters and teasers before a brand new trailer uniting the Justice League found its way online yesterday morning. However, there was someone conspicuous by their absence.

Chances are Superman is the first person who sprung to mind after you read that sentence, but a fan-made teaser has already provided some insight into what exactly the Man of Steel’s been up to. Instead, we’re referring to the other missing hero: Hal Jordan, a.k.a. Green Lantern.

Of course, the character is expected to appear in Green Lantern Corps, but in the comics, he too was a founding member of the League. Why he’s been left on the shelf here then is hard to say, though it could have something to do with how poorly received his 2011 solo outing was. »

X-Men TV Show The Gifted May Take Us Back To World War II

10 hours ago

Shooting on the pilot of Matt Nix’s upcoming X-Men TV series is currently taking place, though outside of some major casting additions and the fact Bryan Singer is directing the episode, we know very little about The Gifted. In fact, that may not even be the official title.

Previous casting calls and interviews have confirmed that we’ll see the robotic Sentinels in the drama – which will revolve around a family coming to terms with having mutant children and their eventual meeting with a group of underground heroes – and it’s also thought that the show will be closely tied to the movies. If that’s the case, it could explain this latest tidbit of information, which is that Legacy Casting is looking for “SS Guards.”

Fans of the X-Men movies will know full well that WWII is an era we’ve already visited in both the first film »

Captain Marvel Star Brie Larson Says She Feels “A Great Responsibility” To The Role

10 hours ago

Though there have been female-led comic book movies in the past (Elektra, Catwoman….nothing particularly noteworthy), the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to feature a female lead hero will be Captain Marvel.

The space-faring adventurer will be played by Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson (Room, Kong: Skull island), who has spoken in the past about being only too aware of the massive responsibly it is to bring Carol Danvers to the big screen in a way that does justice to the character, while also catering to a demographic that may not be too familiar with the somewhat obscure Marvel Comics incarnation of the hero.

Now, during a new interview with The Sunday Times, she reiterates that she’s doing anything but taking this role lightly, saying that she’s hoping to create a “symbol of strength.”

“I feel a great responsibility. I want to create this symbol of »
