Tom Hardy linked with X-Men: Apocalypse villain role

19 October 2014 10:59 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Add another potential comic book movie to Tom Hardy's slate, as he's now reportedly up for the role of Apocalypse in the new X-Men film.

Well, Tom Hardy is a man with a few decisions to make. Already known for one major villain in the world of comic book movies thanks to his work as Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, he's got offers for two or three more to wade through it seems.

Hardy has been linked with playing Doctor Strange for Marvel, and it was also reported at the end of last week that he had been offered one of the key roles in the DC movie, Suicide Squad (that Fury helmer David Ayer is directing). But just to throw a proverbial spanner into the works, it turns out he might just be the choice to play Apocalypse in the next X-Men movie too. »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

18 October 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Departure Day: When it comes to TV, is closure important?

If you happen to follow a decent number of TV critics on Twitter, you may have noticed a minor eruption of late. A schism has emerged, prompted by accounts like The Cancellation Bear, which concerns itself solely with the topic of whether or not series are likely to survive based on current ratings patterns. That may sound perfectly innocent on its own, but quite a few admirers have expressed the notion that they refuse to dive into a series if they get the sense that it will come to a premature end, thereby robbing them of closure. This idea has, naturally, left many critics incensed: isn’t TV a medium founded on chaos, on the thrill of working within limitations and at the whims of fickle audiences? Moreover, isn’t it silly to always want tidy resolution in the context »

Monster Mashup: X-Men #40

17 October 2014 6:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

X-Men #40

Written by Roy Thomas

Pencilers: Don Heck

Inkers: George Tuska

Letterers: Artie Simek

Editor: Stan Lee

Marvel

Because the characters exist in the public domain, there have been countless comic book iterations of classic horror icons Dracula and Frankenstein, including “official” versions of both characters which exist within the respective Marvel and DC Universes, versions which interact with each company’s superheroes. But through the years, those heroes have also encountered and battled one-off iterations of the horror monsters, independent of the “main” characterization.

One of the earliest such examples is X-Men #40. While Marvel would eventually introduce Frankenstein’s Monster to their universe with 1973′s The Monster of Frankenstein #1 (the first four issues of which essentially adapt Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein), the creature made an appearance of sorts years earlier, in the January 1968 issue of X-Men.

Long before they were a sales juggernaut starring in multiple comic books »

Stan Lee planning Bollywood film on his Indian comic book superhero Chakra

17 October 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

World renowned comic book legend Stan Lee is planning to transform his Indian comic book series Chakra: The Invincible in to a Bollywood film. Lee, who is famous for co-creating iconic comic book heroes such as Spiderman, Iron Man and X-Men, is in talks with Graphics India boss Sharad Devajaran with regards to using his Indian superhero character for the purpose of a live action film.

Chakra: The Invincible, is based on the story of Raju Rai, a teenager who uses his scientific knowledge to unlock the secrets of human potential, as well as fighting against evil.

Lee is already negotiating with top actors and directors within the Indian film industry in order to adapt his comic book series for the silver screen. Although Bollywood has already experimented with such films before like Krrish and Ra.One, this will be the first time an Indian superhero film is being made »

Death of Wolverine #4 is a noble end for a legendary character

15 October 2014 2:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Death of Wolverine #4

Written by Charles Soule

Pencilled by Steve McNiven

Inked by Jay Leisten

Colors by Justin Ponsor

Published by Marvel Comics

In Death of Wolverine, Charles Soule, Steve McNiven, Jay Leisten, and Justin Ponsor had the tough job of killing off one Marvel’s most popular characters in a way consistent with his legacy of his character. Death of Wolverine #4 contains the actual “death”, and Soule, McNiven, and company stick the landing. Except for Doctor Cornelius’ supervillainous monologues, Soule’s script is terse and minimalist. Wolverine doesn’t say much, but he does a lot in keeping with his early characterization in Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s Uncanny X-Men where he would be the one still scrapping and fighting even after the Hellfire Club had taken out the other X-Men. In this last story, Soule examines all the different sides of Wolverine from lab experiment and animal to soldier, »

Why X-Men Won.t Give Us Any More Mutants

8 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Although 20th Century Fox currently owns the live-action rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four, Marvel Entertainment continues to include these characters in their everyday goings-on in the comics. We may never see the X-Men or Fantastic Four team up with The Avengers on the big screen, but they can still hang out with each other on the printed page. However, now Marvel has decided to stick in to Fox by taking drastic action within their comic books, specifically towards mutants. Notable X-Men writer Chris Claremont was on the Nerdist Podcast several months back as part of a conversation with other comic book writers Len Wein, Marc Bernardin and Heath Corson, but a particular section of the conversation went unnoticed until Bleeding Cool recently listened to the episode and dug it up. According to Claremont, if you.re currently a writer on one of Marvel.s X-Men books, you.re »

Is Marvel Trying To Destroy "Fantastic Four" ?

8 October 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

While Sony Pictures and Disney-owned Marvel are reportedly working out a licensing agreement that will see 'Spider-Man' welcomed into Marvel Studios' 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' (similar to Marvel and Paramount making a deal regarding 'Captain America' on the big screen), litigation now looms 'Hydra'-like as Marvel appears to be deliberately trying to squash 20th Century Fox attempts to move forward with more "Fantastic Four" and "X-Men" movies:

"...Fox legally owns licensed screen rights to Marvel's 'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four', and Marvel has retaliated by undermining those properties. 

"According to Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, the company has forbidden the creation of new 'X-Men' characters because those characters could then be used by Fox.

" Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four" will also be canceled April 2015 with issue #645, 'Fantastic Fourever',  so there won’t be any support on shelves when 'The Fantastic Four' reboot movie opens August 7, 2015.

Marvel’s Vendetta against Fox Continues; Comic Writers No Longer Allowed to Create New X-men Characters; Fantastic Four Comics to End Next Year

7 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Sony Pictures and Marvel might be able to work out a deal to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the bitter rivalry between Marvel and 20th Century Fox continues.  Fox owns the screen rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four, and Marvel has retaliated by undermining those properties.  According to Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont [via Bleeding Cool], the company has forbidden the creation of new X-Men characters because those characters could then be used by Fox. Hit the jump for more on how Marvel is trying to hurt Fox's profits even if it means canceling comics. Bleeding Cool also reports that Fantastic Four will be canceled next year with the triple-sized issue #645, Fantastic Fourever (a cruelly ironic title).  Bleeding Cool expects that the series will end sometime around April, so there won't be any support on shelves when The Fantastic Four opens in theaters on August 7, 2015.

Comics: Marvel Creators Not Allowed To Create New X-men Characters To Spite Fox

7 October 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Some were sceptical about recent reports which claimed Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter had ordered the cancellation of the Fantastic Four comic book in a bid to damage the upcoming movie from 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank. However, if you need further proof of the soured relations between Marvel and Fox look no further than here! Bleeding Cool have unearthed an interview with Chris Claremont - you can check it out by clicking below - and single out some comments from the writer about how things currently stand at Marvel in relation to the X-Men. "I have to say quite honestly as I understand it now the X department is forbidden to create new characters. Well… who owns them? All because all new characters become the film property of Fox. There will be no X-Men merchandising for the foreseeable future because, why promote Fox material?" This isn't the first »

'X-Men' Live Action TV Series Being Planned at Fox?

6 October 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While we've heard rumblings of this before, Bleeding Cool, the site that brought us the first news of a new Supergirl TV series being developed, now 'confirms' that Fox is moving forward on a live-action X-Men series.

The news comes from a source hiding within the ranks at Fox, who claim that an X-Men live-action TV series is in deep development. The studio is growing increasingly serious about bringing their lucrative Marvel franchise to the small screen, just as Marvel Studios and Disney have done with their own cinematic world on shows like ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Marvel's Agent Carter and Netflix's plan to have Marvel's Daredevil lead into The Defenders miniseries.

Of course, there are no details beyond the fact that the development process is heating up. Bleeding Cool hopes that more news will come forward now that it's out in the open, with an announcement to »

Review: X-Men Days of Future Past

6 October 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Increasingly, studios want you to stream or buy your own digital copy of feature films and to entice you, that edition is being made weeks prior to the physical disc being available for purchase. In an effort to direct viewer buying and viewing habits, studios are also shifting review copies from disc to high definition download. My first encounter with this brave new world, ironically enough, comes with 20th Century Home Entertainment’s current release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sprawling, epic film from May. The biggest drawback is making certain you have enough hard disc storage for the mammoth file and a set-up that allows you to watch on a huge screen. Lacking that, I watched the film on my 24” external monitor and while the image was crisp and the audio clear enough (although maybe I need to upgrade my speakers); it needs a bigger screen to properly appreciate. »

As the only beast strong enough to save humanity from the mechanical dinos, Kong must rely on the help of three kids who know the truth about him.

The series is bring produced by Avi Arad (Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men), and it will be geared toward kids. »

Is Stan Lee Playing the Same Character in All His Marvel Appearances?

30 September 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Comic book legend Stan Lee has made appearances in almost every Marvel film. His appearances seem to be random, amusing roles. However, could he be playing the same character—a well-established Marvel character—in all these films?

Marvel films are made by multiple studios; Disney, Sony and Fox. The continuities of these individual studio’s ‘cinematic universes’ are separate and cannot legally link to each other. However, is there one character that secretly connects the three cinematic universes? Is that character played by comic writing icon Stan Lee? And is that character…The Watcher?

He’s made cameos in most Marvel films and they all seem to be unconnected, Hitchcockian walk-ons, designed as lite-hearted tributes to the legendary comic scribe. He’s been mailman Willie Lumpkin, Hugh Hefner, Larry King, a General, a victim of poisoned soda, the guy listening to music during a slug-fest, a hotdog vendor, a security man, »

Marvel Settles With Jack Kirby's Estate Over Copyright Battle

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Marvel has finally settled with Jack Kirby’s estate after years of legal battles regarding Kirby’s instrumental artwork, including his work on the original “Avengers.”

Marvel vs. Jack Kirby

Kirby, who died in 1994, is considered one of the forefathers of comic books and is known as the frequent collaborator of Stan Lee. Kirby’s illustrations created and shaped some of the most famous Marvel characters, from the X-Men to the Fantastic Four and the Avengers.

Marvel has gone on to make millions off these characters, and their likeness, with blockbuster films and massive marketing deals, but Kirby’s heirs have not seen any profits because Kirby was technically a freelance artist. Moreover, Kirby worked with Marvel from 1958 to 1963, when copyright and credit for comics was relatively loose. Kirby was famously disrespected by Marvel, who refused to grant him any real ownership of his characters or and a majority of »
