Steven Spielberg: Iron Giant Is Major Part of ‘Ready Player One’

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Spielberg wasn’t sure he was the right director for “Ready Player One,” his upcoming science-fiction epic.

During a panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, Spielberg said that after reading Ernest Cline’s best-selling novel about a virtual reality-addicted future, his first thought was “They’re going to need a younger director.”

Spielberg was joined onstage by Cline and the film’s stars, Tye Sheridan, Ben Mendelsohn, and T.J. Miller. Fans in Hall H were treated to a trailer for a film that overflowed with shout-outs to several geek staples. The gaming world that “Ready Player One” depicts enables players to interact with characters from pop culture staples from the ’80s and ’90s, such as “The Iron Giant,” “Tron,” “Akira,” “Lord of the Rings,” “Back to the Future,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street,” to name a few.

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Superman is now going to dance with the devil.

Tom Welling — best known for his 10-season run as Clark Kent on The CW’s “Smallville” — has signed on for the cast of Fox’s “Lucifer” for its third season.

Welling will play Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant. While he’s reserved and well-respected, like Lucifer (Tom Ellis), he’s charming, charismatic and handsome. So when Pierce starts developing a connection with Decker (Lauren German), the devil comes out in Lucifer.

Welling, who starred in the film “The Choice,” also directed several episodes of “Smallville” and served as an executive producer on the series.

When “Lucifer” returns for season three, Lucifer has resolved the problem of Mom aka Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) — but he must confront the problem of figuring out who kidnapped him and why his angel wings have returned.

In its second season, “Lucifer” averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.83 viewers in Nielsen’s »

6 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today at the Comic-Con panel for DC, Warner Bros. revealed that their The Flash movie would be based on the 2011 comic book series Flashpoint. For those unfamiliar with the comics, which were written by Geoff Johns (who now oversees the Dceu), Flashpoint is essentially a big reset button. Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) runs so fast that he travels back in time and prevents his mother from being killed. However, thanks to The Butterfly Effect, this has major repercussions across the DC universe. The Season 3 premiere of The Flash TV series also attempted their own version of Flashpoint … »

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be Set in the ’90s With Skrulls as Villains

51 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain Marvel” is going to be the comic book movie equivalent of a period piece.

The superhero film will be set in the ’90s, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. That means everything will unfold before Tony Stark dons Iron Man’s suit, Captain America comes out of deep freeze, Thor crashes to Earth, and before the Avengers ever think of assembling.

It also means that Samuel L. Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury won’t be wearing the Shield agent’s trademark eyepatch. Feige said the film will take place before Fury loses his eye.

A '90s-Set 'Captain Marvel' Movie Opens Up Worlds of Possibilities

1 hour ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The news from Marvel's San Diego Comic-Con panel that Captain Marvel will take place in the past — the 1990s, to be precise — is a surprising one. So far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has enjoyed a tight continuity (and contemporary focus) after the 1940s setting of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger. But is there a method to the nostalgic madness?

In one sense, the backwards time jump for Captain Marvel is oddly reminiscent of Warner Bros' cinematic treatment of Wonder Woman, whose first solo movie took place in the past after her onscreen introduction via a cameo during a »

In past films, Thor and Loki have both been bitter enemies — see “The Avengers” — and reluctant allies — see “Thor: The Dark World.” This time around, they’re back to working together, but with Loki missing his staff and Thor missing his hammer, the »
