I’m sorry everybody… I didn’t like Logan

19 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis gives his thoughts on Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine, the incredibly well received Logan

Now that’s a loaded title! Perfectly designed to stand out amongst all the glowing Logan reviews in your MySpace timeline. Some will call it ‘clickbait’. Those people probably don’t understand what ‘clickbait’ is.

I write the title with a heavy heart, though. I wanted to love Logan. Everybody else seemed to. It’s a superhero Western with blood and swearing and Jean-Luc Picard. It’s like James Mangold looked up my Netflix viewing history, saw High Noon, Star Trek: The Next Generation and RuPaul’s Drag Race and thought, ‘let’s make a Wolverine solo movie specifically for this guy!’

Actually, ignore that whole RuPaul’s Drag Race part.

My reasons for not enjoying Logan are coming, but before we get there, I need to devote at least 500 words to over-establishing context. »

3 February 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stephen Lacey and Andrew Leyland are your guide to Marvel’s First Family, The Fantastic Four. Starting at the very beginning of the Marvel Age of Comics, they cover every issue of The Fantastic Four, every spinoff title (Strange Tales, Marvel Two-In-One, and more), every guest appearance and every cameo, in order of publication…

Locational Coincidences

Hello, and welcome to episode 217 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This time around, we’re taking a brief look at Marvel Team-Up #40, in which the Human Torch plays second fiddle to Spider-Man, the Sons of the Tiger, the Big Man, the Crime Master, the Sandman, 2/3 of the Enforcers, and a dead pigeon. That’s at least ninth fiddle, depending on how you’re counting your fiddles. Oh, and he also flies away from the plot halfway through the issue. »

Kong: Skull Island producer reveals Godzilla vs. Kong connections

2 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems John Goodman’s character in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island will play a critical role in bridging together the plot for the planned Godzilla vs. Kong movie in 2020.

Speaking to Cinema Blend, Kong: Skull Island producer Alex Garcia reveals “It’s a landslide expedition, officially, but John Goodman, who plays the guy from Monarch, is sort of pulling the strings in the background and we come to realize obviously that they knew much more than they let on initially.”

Garcia also elaborated on bringing Kong and Godzilla together, stating “If you can establish these characters in a way that feels compelling with the technology that we have today, with very distinct backdrops, where they’re coming from, they’re each established credibly in their own right, it should feel right for them to come together.”

Ben Affleck’s Batman: The already troubled history of The Batman

Luke Owen looks at the already troubled history of Ben Affleck’s The Batman

It was news that concerned fans of the faltering Dceu when it was confirmed that Ben Affleck will no longer direct The Batman, which is still supposed to be released next year. This bad news about The Batman follows rumours that Justice League is a mess, as is Wonder Woman, and The Flash is getting a page-one re-write following the departure of its second director.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. »

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

Comic Books 101: Marvel Characters That Need To Be On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. !

I’ve said time and time again that despite its merits the biggest flaws in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV show has been its lack of fully developing characters from the Marvel Comic Book Universe. The show (which spiraled out from The Avengers movie) is ripe to explore and showcase some of the best characters that might just not be ready or capable of making an impact on the big screen. While some characters have found a way to appear (Deathlock,  Daisy Rumble Johnson, Absorbing Man, and recently Ghost Rider) a great majority of villains have either been created specifically for the show (and suddenly now appearing in the comics) or have just been throw away characters that have very little to zero ties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Comic Book Universe. »

Greater Creators Spotlights Jack Kirby

31 January 2017 10:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we continue to enjoy living in this golden age of superheroes, science fiction and awesome pop culture in general, it’s important that we don’t forget about the genius minds who got us to this point. And, thankfully, neither have the folks behind the new Machinima series, Greater Creators.

Said web series stars internet sensation and all-around four-color guru Comic Book Girl 19, who aims to educate as well as entertain – and that she does when she kicks things off by shining the spotlight on none other than Jack “The King” Kirby.

For those unfamiliar, Kirby is one of the men we have to thank for Marvel books such as Fantastic Four and The Avengers, in addition to DC fan favorites such as Darkseid, the New Gods and Kamandi, the latter of which is currently being revisited by some of today’s top talents in a twelve-issue run. »

James Mangold Talks Logan at 20th Century Fox’s Genre Showcase, Read Our Impressions of the First 42 Minutes

23 January 2017 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In December at their 2017 Genre Showcase event, 20th Century Fox previewed the first 42 minutes of Logan, the eagerly awaited final chapter of the Wolverine saga. Daily Dead was in attendance at the event, and to give readers a big idea of what to expect, we have highlights from director James Mangold’s comments at the event, as well as our impressions of the intense footage that was shown.

After appearing as the character in now nine films (including his X-Men: First Class cameo) Hugh Jackman teams up once again with director James Mangold to bring his run as the “Mutant Formerly Known As Weapon X” to an end.

The two last brought the character to the screen in 2013 with The Wolverine, when original director Darren Aronofsky bowed out after a lengthy pre-production phase. The results were mostly positive, but moments felt hamstrung by superhero movie clichés, such as the out-of-place »

Shaft reboot lands Ride Along director

22 January 2017 9:49 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 23, 2017

The latest movie reboot of 1971’s Shaft has taken some steps forward, with the reveal that Tim Story has been hired to direct the new film.

See related  Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: Karen Gillan on Nebula's return Spider-Man: Homecoming - Michael Keaton on Vulture Marvel Studios movies: UK release date calendar

Story sprung to prominence when he directed the two Fantastic Four movies in the 2000s, before enjoying more box office joys with Ride Along and Ride Along 2. A third Ride Along movie is also said to be in development.

However, Story now has to juggle Shaft on his docket somewhere, with the new film rumoured to be a complete reboot, severing any ties to the Richard Roundtree-headlined original films, or John Singleton’s 2000 continuation, that starred Samuel L Jackson.

There’s no word yet on when the new Shaft will land, but »

Tim Story to direct the Shaft reboot

22 January 2017 6:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Tim Story (Fantastic Four, Ride Along) has signed on to direct New Line Cinema’s Shaft reboot, which has been scripted by Kenya Barris (Black-ish) and Alex Barnow (The Goldbergs).

Although plot details are being kept under wraps, it is said that “the idea is to reinvigorate the franchise with a focus on the son of the cool private eye who always finds himself navigating the gray terrain between the law and organized crime in New York City.”

The original Shaft was released in 1971 and starred Richard Roundtree as private eye John Shaft. Roundtree returned for two sequels – Shaft’s Big Score and Shaft in Africa – along with a shortlived CBS TV series; he also reprised the role in 2000’s Shaft, which saw Samuel L. Jackson taking the lead as his nephew. »

Shaft Reboot Gets Fantastic Four Director Tim Story

20 January 2017 3:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February 2015, New Line Cinema announced they were developing a Shaft remake, with John Davis producing through his Davis Entertainment company. At the time, no writer or director had been attached to the project, but that has all changed. Today a new report claims that Tim Story is in negotiations to direct, from a script by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow. This report also confirms that the project will follow another relative of Richard Roundtree's original title character.

Deadline reports that New Line plans to "reinvigorate" the franchise by focusing this reboot on the son of John Shaft, who is navigating the murky area between law enforcement and organized crime in New York City. No specific plot details were revealed, but this format could potentially allow Richard Roundtree to return as John Shaft, and Samuel L. Jackson to also come back as his nephew, also named John Shaft. »

Tim Story to Direct ‘Shaft’ Reboot

20 January 2017 11:22 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ride Along” director Tim Story has come on board to direct the latest reboot of “Shaft.”

The film is being produced by John Davis, Ira Napoliello, and “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, who wrote the script with Alex Barnow.

The original 1971 version starred Richard Roundtree as a smooth private detective who is hired by a drug lord to find his kidnapped daughter. The character became a pop culture icon and the theme song, written by Barry White, went on to win an Oscar.

Paramount Pictures rebooted the film in 2002 with Samuel L. Jackson taking over the role and John Singleton writing and directing.

New Line has since acquired the rights to the pic and revved up development after Barris pitched a new idea that excited execs. No meetings have taken place on who would play the titular role.

John Ostrander: Jack Kirby is Still King!

15 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I may have told this story before but I’m at an age where you repeat yourself a lot. And it’s germane to this column.

Years ago, when I was still somewhat new to the industry, I was working the First Comics booth at a Chicago Con along with my lovely wife, Kim Yale. A group of pros walked past me that included Julie Schwartz, the legendary DC editor, and Roz and Jack Kirby.

My jaw dropped and I started hyperventilating. Kim gave me a strange look.

“Pssst! Julie!” I whispered. I knew Julie from DC, at least somewhat. Ever affable, Julie came to the table.

“Whatcha want, kid?”

“Introduce me to the King!” Julie gave me a strange look.

“Whattaya talking about? It‘s just Jack. Come over and say hello.”

No no no no no! I can’t! Don’t you understand?! He’s the King! Help a guy out, »
