X-Men: The real Apocalypse is its continuity!

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black attempts to make sense of the continuity of the X-Men franchise…

Have you ever attempted to make sense of the X-Men movie continuity? As in pick apart the entire timeline of events across the eight, soon to be nine films in the franchise? Of course not, you all have lives. You have friends and family and loved ones, and probably spend time with them. I, on the other hand, give a worrying amount of time over in my brain space to consider these things, and recent conversation with my good friend Lee Chrimes, ostensibly about the merits (or lack thereof) of the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, led to a very deep exploration of X-Men chronology which drove us toward one inescapable conclusion: the writers have no idea, and are probably hoping we’re past the point of worrying about it. Well I have news for you, Simon Kinberg – this matters. »

Preview of Chavo Guerrero’s Warrior’s Creed #1

23 May 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In June, Lion Forge Comics is set to launch a new series based upon the post-wrestling exploits of former WWE and Lucha Underground star Chavo Guerrero, Jr., entitled Chavo Guerrero’s Warrior’s Creed, and we have a preview of the first issue for you here…

So here’s the thing about Chavo Guerrero, Jr. — the guy’s unstoppable. With 12 major wrestling championships in a career spanning just as many years, he’s one of the most electrifying performers on the circuit. After his “retirement” from the ring he went on to dominate the first year of El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground, much to the excitement of his 500K social media followers and El Rey’s 10M-strong viewership. You could say Chavo’s stardom is matched only by his incredible family legacy, as he is the third generation of Guerrero family grappling. This heritage, charisma, and physicality is what »

‘X-Men’: Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters gets a totally rad ’80s commercial

19 May 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the wibbly wobbly new timeline of the X-Men movies, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters has reopened in 1983. That means young mutants once again have a place where they can fit in with their peers and learn to control their powers. But first — Professor X needs to get the word out about his school. How to do that? With a totally rad TV commercial, of course. Ahead of the opening of X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox has released a video in the style of an ad made in the 1980s, featuring Jubilee (Lana Condor) telling us about Charles Xavier’s school. There’s even a toll-free number at the end of the commercial you can call — with none other than Stan Lee’s voice greeting you, asking you to leave a message, and telling you to have an amazing day. X-Men: Apocalypse opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, May 27. »

Marvelous DA7E: Strange Villain Choices and... X-23?

18 May 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Hot dispatch from the rumor mill - we were contacted by a source close to Doctor Strange with a character name for Mad Mikkelsen's character. I was hoping that it would be “Kaecilius,” because that is what I had been telling all of you for awhile and - Boom - that was the name that we got.

Who knows how on we were with the whole sub-atomic particles and general breakdown of how Doctor Strange plays out in the first and second acts, but knowing that Kaecilius and his followers show up in the film from this report and the trailer, I’m feeling pretty good about the direction Doctor Strange is moving in.

Of course, the new question is how much will this Kaecilius have in common with the comic book version of Kaecilius who is a disciple of Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character). Not a lot about Mordo has been officially revealed, »

Andrew Doscas’ Summer Reading List

16 May 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There are different themes and moods associated with each season that, aside from the weather, make them remarkably different from one another.  Summer in particular is associated with vitality, energy, and joy, while winter, in contrast, is most linked to death, lethargy, and hopelessness.  These seasonal moods extend to all aspects of pop culture like movies and music too.  Albums like 808s and Heartbreak, Reflektor, and Led Zeppelin IV are clearly winter albums, while Some Girls, True Blue, and Californication are without question summer albums.

Even comic books reflect this trend as some are more fit for particular seasons or times of the day than others.  Some comics like Daredevil and Batman are nighttime books, while Superman and Amazing Spider-Man are daytime books. Batman Red Rain should be read around Halloween, while The Ultimates and The Ultimates 2 are the comic book equivalent of summer blockbusters.  Below is my list of »

Michael Davis From The Edge: All You Need Is Love

15 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

My mom died thinking she threw away a copy of Superman number one from 1938.

Yes, I do indeed realize just how lame that must sound, and it would be if I gave a flying fish about that book with regards to my mother. I don’t but it’s important to the story I’m trying to write and just so I’m crystal clear, I’d happily burn the last copy left on Earth to spend just a minute more with my mother.

It was Superman number two she tossed out, and you can read the whole story entitled A Comic Book Tale on ComicMix.

I told her it was number one while trying to make the point that she should never throw out another comic book of mine, ever, and she never did. I have been keeping that my secret weapon for when I needed a real ‘gotcha’ to use on my mom. »

Adaptation vs. Reinterpretation: The Two Approaches to Making Comic Book Films

14 May 2016 6:44 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Comic book-inspired films are wildly popular right now. Disney, Fox and Warner Bros are the leaders in bringing Marvel and DC super heroes to the big screen. There are two techniques for doing this…Adaptations and Reinterpretations. Which company uses which method? Cinelinx takes a look at these two techniques.

“Adaptation” means transferring a literary source to a new medium, like stage, film or television.

“Reinterpretation” means to recreate or rethink a work of art as a new conception.

Looking at these two definitions, you can make the argument that Disney does adaptations, while Fox prefers reinterpretation, and DC is somewhere in between. Let’s look at the two methods of bringing the heroes of Marvel and DC Comics to the screen to see if this argument holds up.

We’ll start with the Disney superhero films: Marvel makes adaptations. Their films essentially lift the characters off the page and, »

Gambit movie delay explained

Simon Kinberg says that the script was the reason for the holdup with the Gambit movie.

It seems like the Gambit movie has been in the works for a long, long time right now. They've had a star in place for well over a year with Channing Tatum, and the production is now on its second director. Still, the 20th Century Fox X-Men movie universe seems to be functioning just fine, with the recent success of Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse just weeks away, and Wolverine 3 just getting underway for a 2017 release.

X-Men movie producer Simon Kinberg explained what the holdup is, and when he expects the production might actually get moving. 

“We’ve got to get the script right” he told Flickering Myth. “We just didn’t get the script to the place where we all thought the movie deserved. So we’re still working on the script. »

Marvel Studios Secret Origins Revealed by Founder

8 May 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The history behind Marvel Studios is a fairly interesting one, but there's one key ingredient to getting this movie powerhouse off the ground we haven't really heard about. And he is David Maisel. Promoting his work as a producer on this month's Angry Birds, the man finally revealed his role in helping to establish Marvel Studios as one of the biggest players in the industry today. Maisel credits himself for the sequel strategy at play within the McU, and he's the one who engineered the sale to Disney.

It's suspected that even most hardcore Marvel fans have never heard of David Maisel, but without his hard work and ingenuity, Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow might not be household names. One reason Maisel's name isn't often mentioned is that the act of giving proper credit to those who worked for Marvel's ultimate success is a contentious one. But this »

What You'll Be Dying to Know About Black Panther After You See Civil War

4 May 2016 5:31 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When you see this week's latest Marvel release, Captain America: Civil War, you'll have the most questions about one certain Avenger, even though this movie is packed full of 'em. Black Panther is a character who brings with him multiple firsts - most importantly, that he is the first black superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to get his own movie, but he is also the first character who's being introduced in another McU movie before we see him in his stand-alone feature. Last Summer, I got a lot of insight about the character when I visited the set of the movie and interviewed Chadwick Boseman, but there is still a lot to know about the new character. Find out the basics for the groundbreaking Avenger from the comics lore and his movie debut. Image Source: Disney Who He Is Black Panther is the alter ego of T'Challa, the son of T'Chaka, »

New Mutants Characters Unveiled by Director

4 May 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, 20th Century Fox closed a deal with The Fault In Our Stars filmmaker Josh Boone to write and direct the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants. Last month, the filmmaker revealed on his Instagram page that he had completed the second draft of the screenplay and turned it in to producer Simon Kinberg, which is essentially all we know for sure about the project. Over the past few days, the filmmaker has taken to his official Instagram page, revealing six of the mutant characters who will be featured in this superhero adaptation.

The characters revealed by the director through his Instagram page are Magik, Wolfsbane, Dani Moonstar, Cannonball, Sunspot and Warlock. Oddly enough, this isn't the first time we've heard that Magik and Wolfsbane will be a part of the story. An unconfirmed rumor surfaced in March that claimed Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams will play Wolfsbane, »

Is This Fox's X-Men "New Mutants" Line-Up?

4 May 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Details of filmmaker Josh Boone's "X-Men" spin-off film "New Mutants" have been scarce, but the writer-director has used his Instagram account today to seemingly tease the characters that will assemble as the young superhero team in the movie.

The artwork Boone has posted includes Mirage, Magik, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Warlock and Cannonball. This would fit in with the casting rumors around Magik and Wolfsbane that have already cropped up.

His line-up also seems to fit with the original group brought together by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod in the 1980s. "New Mutants" doesn't have an official release date as yet.

Josh Boone's dropping some big 'New Mutants' hints on Instagram today

4 May 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I ran a recent report about some exciting cast attachments for Josh Boone’s upcoming The New Mutants, I also reported on which mutants you could expect to see in the film. Now it appears that Boone, who recently turned in his latest draft of the proposed new addition to the bigscreen X-Men universe, is dropping some big hints today on Instagram that confirm the characters I previously mentioned. What’s even more exciting are the additional characters he’s suggesting may show up in the movie. For me, the idea that Warlock is going to be built into the franchise from the beginning is terrific news. I wasn’t sure until now that he was part of the line-up, and I think it’s fair to say that is the best news I’ve heard about the film so far. As originally introduced in New Mutants #18, he was »

Now that Wade Wilson has proven himself an absolutely capable box office draw, all eyes are on Deadpool 2 to repeat the success of its predecessor. In one near-perfect movie, he proved that an R-rated avenue to Fox.s X-Men universe could totally work wonders with audiences. The upcoming Deadpool sequel will bring iconic X-Man Cable into the equation, but many fans had hoped to see him sooner. As it turns out, Cable was almost featured prominently in the recent Deadpool solo movie.   Speaking with Inverse, Deadpool.s creator Rob Liefeld spoke out about how Cable.s presence in the recent superhero blockbuster was strongly considered, but ultimately dropped: Half of us believed the movie should involve Cable. I could feel Cable breathing down my neck. I said, 'No. Don.t put Cable in the first movie.' If Cable comes later, great. Deadpool is a vehicle for Ryan to shine. »

Dazzler Easter Egg Revealed in X-Men: Apocalypse

29 April 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yes! She has finally arrived! For years, fans have wondered if we'd ever get to see the Disco dancing mutant know as Dazzler in an X-Men movie. While she only seems to be getting a quick cameo in the form of an Easter egg, the iconic 70s Marvel superhero is alive and well in 1983, and from the looks of the latest X-Men: Apocalypse sneak peek, the singing superhero has dropped a new album that's caught the attention of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

This latest image comes courtesy of star Sophie Turner, who debuted Dazzler on her personal Twitter page. We're not sure who the model is playing Dazzler. Here's what the future Dark Phoenix had to say about this LP from the white jumpsuit wearing mutant.

"#Fbf that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer's album (pre 1989, of course)"

We've reached peak superhero. So which ones should we cull?

21 April 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With new Captain America and X-Men episodes set to follow Batman v Superman and Deadpool into crowded multiplexes, which costumed crime fighters deserve to be put out to pasture?

The history of comic books is littered with the corpses of costumed titans who never quite made it, from Fatman the Human Flying Saucer to Jack Kirby’s space opera hero Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers. Some survived for years to entertain golden- and silver-age audiences, while others were sent to superhero purgatory after a single issue. Jon Morris’s excellent book The League of Regrettable Superheroes has more examples of colourful characters who fell by the wayside, from Madame Fatal (the world’s first ever cross-dressing granny superhero) to Bozo the Iron Man (a remote-controlled, jive-talking robot crimefighter), long before Marvel Studios took over the multiplexes.
