Metal Gear Solid Movie Gains A Writer

11 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Metal Gear in movie form was announced years ago, but somewhat vanished from existance. While Konami and Kojima seem to be parting ways, the movie still found a way to float back to attention. Check out who will be writing the film.

It was back in 2012 during Metal Gear's 25th anniversary event that Kojima announced they are making a Metal Gear movie. He was to be closely involved, and Sony's Columbia Pictures picked it up. All pointing to good signs that this movie will be done well.

Then it vanished. We haven't heard anything at all regarding the film since, until today.

Deadline is reporting that Sony has finally found a writer for the film, and it isn't some Hollywood big shot.

Jay Basu is the writer they have selected. His credits include Monsters: Dark Continent and he will soon be helping Universal Pictures reboot their monster flicks. Beyond »

26 March 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

X-men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer returns to helm the next installment of 20th Century Fox's popular X-men film franchise, scheduled for theatrical release in 2016. Taking place in the 1980s after the events of X-men: Days Of Future Past, the upcoming film will introduce the fan favorite X-Men villain from Marvel Comics, created by Louise and Walter Simonson.

10 Things Marvel Wants You To Forget About Deadpool

25 March 2015 11:25 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

The X-Men are a serious bunch – and often to a fault. Whilst the epic superhero soap opera of the oppressed mutant underclass and their crazy abilities only really works if you take it on totally po-faced (as all of the best writers of the comic, from Chris Claremont to Joss Whedon, have done), it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. And yet, for the majority of their life, that has been the case.

Which is why Deadpool was introduced. Well, Deadpool was introduced because Rob Liefeld – infamous in the comics industry for having a very long career despite not being very good at drawing – came up with him, and New Mutants (later X-Force) writer Fabian Nicieza needed a new foil for his younger superhero team. And Wade Wilson seemed to fit the bill.

They eventually developed the Merc With A Mouth into the character he is today: the nigh-invulnerable, »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Adds Newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee

25 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though she currently has no credits on her IMDb page at this time, Lana Condor's first entry will be huge! The virtually unknown actress has landed a prime role in X-Men: Apocalypse. She will play one of the youngest team members to ever fight alongside Professor Xavier and his school of extraordinary students. That's right, Lana Condor is taking on the role of Jubilation Lee, Aka Jubilee.

While X-Men: Apocalypse is confirmed to take place in the 80s, Jubilee didn't become popular in the comic books until the early 1990s, often playing sidekick to Wolverine. She was first introduced in Uncanny X-Men #244, which was published in 1989. Created by iconic X-men writer Chris Claremont and artist Marc Silvestri, the character's mutation allows her to create and control energy plasmodia that are similar to fireworks. The actress has appeared in the movies before, first in 2000's X-Men played by Katrina Florence and »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About X-Men

25 March 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Created in 1963 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the X-Men are one of the most iconic and instantly recognisable superhero teams of all-time. A group of misfits hated and feared by those they are trying to connect, just about anyone and everyone is able to relate to them.

Their impact in the world of comics has been significant, but so too has their time spent on the big screen. The X-Men franchise has now been around for 15 years, spawning a number of box office hits and spinoffs. Right now, the series is showing no signs of slowing down with three instalments – X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, and Gambit – lined up for 2016.

With more titles than you can count (it’s not unusual for the X-Men to have at least three or four team books on sale at the same time) and decades worth of stories behind them, their history is »

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

13 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ the super-powered 'inhuman' known as 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene during Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...according to Marvel Comics, 'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

13 March 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

With the release this weekend of both Disney’s live-action Cinderella and the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night, we’re finally out of the early-year movie doldrums. And as I’ve said many times, dear readers, it’s never too early to look forward to what’s coming out. In that spirit, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column takes another look at the first big movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce »

Sneak Peek Chinese actress Bingbing Fan aka 'Blink' in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" covering the March 2015 issue of "Elle" (China) magazine. Fan has confirmed she will be returning for writer/director Bryan Singer's prepping Fox feature "X-Men: Apocalypse", as Marvel Comics' teleporting mutant:

"I am contracted to appear in the next four 'X-Men' films," said Fan.

"In the comics, 'Blink' is a Caucasian girl, so I was curious why Bryan wanted an Asian to play the role," Fan said about her debut in Singer's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past".

"He said that it’s time for Blink to make an appearance and, for her debut she has to be simply marvelous. It was an offer I couldn't refuse."

A response to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and directors who might be jealous of comic book movies

4 March 2015 12:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anthony Stokes with a response to Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and directors who might be jealous of comic book movies…

We’re in the age of cinema that focuses on comic book movies and as such everybody is talking about them, even big powerhouse directors. Some, like Kenneth Branagh and Paul Thomas Anderson, speak positively of them. And why shouldn’t they, as for the most part they’ve been pretty well made movies that tell interesting stories with characters that people can love and grow attached to. Then there are the directors who seem to like to dismiss them out of hand.

At the Spirit Awards, Nightcrawler writer-director Dan Gilroy said “Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry. We have survived and we have thrived and I think that’s true spirit.” This made me scratch my head, »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Didn’t Know About Wolverine

2 March 2015 4:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Despite not being one of the classic Marvel characters created by the likes of Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby in the 1960s, Wolverine is still considered one of their best superheroes and is easily as big a fan-favourite as Spider-Man and The Avengers.

It’s not hard to see why that is either. The gruff X-Men character is like a comic book version of Clint Eastwood, and his adventures – which are usually much more violent than those of Captain America and Daredevil for example – have been keeping Marvel fans hooked for decades now. Whether it’s in his classic blue and yellow costume, a vest and jeans, or any other variation worn since his first appearance in 1974, Wolverine is a Marvel mainstay.

However, with a history which goes back as far as the 19th Century, there’s a lot than even the most devoted fan may »

Evan Peters on 'Lazarus Effect,' 'Age of Ultron,' and What He Won't Do in His Next Movie (Exclusive)

26 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Evan Peters knows a thing or two about scaring you silly.

Peters has been a regular cast member of "American Horror Story" since it's groundbreaking first season, playing (in short order) a high school psychopath, an insane asylum inmate (who had a close encounter with extraterrestrials, mutants, and a serial killer), a frat-boy Frankenstein monster, and, most recently, a freak-show performer with lobster claws for hands. Scary right?

Well in this week's "The Lazarus Effect," the latest production by "Paranormal Activity" and "Insidious" mastermind Jason Blum, Peters is back in the oogey-boogey business, this time playing a grad student who is working, along with Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass, and Donald Glover, on a top secret project that could bring people back from the dead. What could go wrong, right? Riiiiiight.

We recently spoke to Peters about what he finds so appealing about the horror genre, whether or not he'll be »

How much control do Marvel have over Spider-Man?

26 February 2015 3:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the deal was announced that Marvel and Sony had come to a terms for Spider-Man to appear in their movies and kick off another reboot to the series in 2017, it was thought that Sony would have full creative control over the character and his direction.

With Amy Pascal stepping down from her seat of control, comic book movie fans were concerned when Tom Rothman took her place. Rothman is notorious for hating comic book movies when he working at 20th Century Fox and was the biggest blockade against a Deadpool movie being made, as well as banning Sentinals from appearing in any X-Men movies. He also micro-managed X-Men Origins: Wolverine to the point where he had the sets re-painted without telling director Gavin Hood. Many believe that Rothman is the reason why Marvel and Fox have an unhealthy relationship.
