Why Did 'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' Really Lose Its Director?

30 September 2015 6:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just three months after signing on to direct 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero spinoff Gambit, filmmaker Rupert Wyatt backed out of the project two weeks ago. The departure was attributed to a shift in the Gambit production schedule, which was supposed to begin in November, but was then changed to March 2016, which reportedly conflicted with an unspecified project. Today, The Hollywood Reporter claims that the split happened because 20th Century Fox started questioning whether or not the filmmaker was truly committed to the project.

Ironically, just weeks before Rupert Wyatt signed on this past June, a report surfaced that actor/producer Channing Tatum was having trouble finding a director for Gambit. He reportedly approached his Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller, along with Darren Aronofsky (Noah), Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption) and J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). All of those filmmakers passed on the project. But even after Rupert Wyatt signed on, »

Marvel Already Has Movie Plans for 'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four'?

30 September 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even the least educated hillbilly living under a rock in Dierks, Arkansas, knows that this summer's Fantastic Four reboot was a monumental bomb. Because of that, many have speculated that the rights to the franchise might revert back to Marvel Studios and Disney. While we have yet to hear that's the case, it sounds like Marvel already has a strong plan in place on how they would utilize their first family of superheroes. In fact, it sounds like they know what they want to do with all of their exiled Marvel titles, should they revert back to the mouse house.

As you can probably tell from the front page of our site, Kevin Feige held a press conference yesterday to celebrate and promote the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-ray and DVD next week. He had a lot to say about nearly every aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

X-Men? Fantastic Four? Marvel Has Contingency Story Plans In Case They Get Character Rights Back

30 September 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I attended a Q&A with Marvel head Kevin Feige last night which you can read about elsewhere on the site (Infinity Stones/Infinity War and the future of the Marvel Universe). One quote in particular no one seems to be focusing on is something Feige said when answering my question about how they can insert a […]

Could Marvel Studios Put Out More Than 3 Films A Year?

30 September 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In looking at the future of comic book movies, what will the landscape look like in 10 years? The Dceu is just getting off the ground with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. A slew of films are planned to follow but if Dawn of Justice disappoints, WB may elect to scale back its aggressive slate. 20th Century Fox is steady with its X-Men franchise but Hugh Jackman is preparing to hang up the claws and Gambit looks to have about a 50/50 chance of getting off the ground. Lets not even discuss Fantastic Four. We could easily have a future where WB and Fox fail to rise up and challenge Marvel for box office supremacy. Would that cause Kevin Feige and company to feel "bullish" and increase their output of McU films past three-a-year? Perhaps say, one per quarter? Speaking to /Film, Feige stated that he's not sure that they'll ever »

Image Revisits the Silver Age with Alan Moore and Co.’s ‘1963’

30 September 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

1963 #1-6 (1993)

Written by Alan Moore

Drawn by Rick Veitch, Dave Gibbons, Steve Bissette, Don Simpson, John Totleben and  Jim Valentino

Colors by Marvin Kilroy and Tony Tollin

Published by Image Comics

If such a thing could be called it, 1963 is minor Alan Moore.  In 1993, Image Comics was still a very young company created by the “hot” artists of the time when Jim Valentino, always the most old timey alternative rebel of the Image crew, got Moore, Steve Bissette, Rick Veitch, John Totleben and a bunch of their friends to create 1963, a pastiche on the early days of Marvel comics.  The Fantastic Four becomes Mystery Incorporated.  Iron Man becomes the Hypernaut.  Spider-Man becomes The Fury, and the Avengers become The Tomorrow Syndicate.  Image’s slick and calculated characters took a backseat to Moore and company’s retro insanity.  To create a whole package, even the ads and editorial pages recreate the feeling of a bygone age. »

Mark Millar Says Fantastic 4 Sequel 'Open To Discussion'

27 September 2015 5:34 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With at least a dozen film and TV projects in development based on his own books and characters, Mark Millar is fast becoming his own comicbook behemoth to rival Marvel and DC. But he remains a creative consultant for the Marvel projects still residing at 20th Century Fox, and as such has just weighed in on the Fantastic 4 debacle. "Everything's open to discussion," he says, addressing where the franchise could possibly go from here."It's a shame," he tells IGN, regarding Fantastic 4's reported production problems and box office underperformance. "I think elements of it were good. The first half in particular works well. [Director Josh Trank] is brilliant. Chronicle was my favorite superhero movie in 2012 - and be reminded Avengers was out that year. Sometimes things just don't work out as planned. Everybody is trying their best and those guys worked their asses off. It just didn't quite come together. »

Get Through The Slow News Day With Fantastic Four Star Jessica Alba's Self Magazine Shoot

23 September 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Plus, as an added bonus, here are shots from her Allure Magazine photoshoot:   Marvel Comics' first family of superherodom, the Fantastic Four, hits the big screen in a light-hearted and funny adventure. It begins when down-on-his-luck genius Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) has to enlist the financial and intellectual help from former schoolmate and rival Victor Von Doom (Julian McMahon) in order to pursue outer-space research into human DNA. Also on the trip are Reed's best friend, Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis); his former lover, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), who's now Doom's employee and love interest; and her hotshot-pilot brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans). Things don't go as planned, of course, and the quartet becomes blessed--or is it cursed?--with superhuman powers: flexibility, brute strength, invisibility and projecting force fields, and bursting into flame. Meanwhile, Doom himself is undergoing a transformation. Fantastic Four featured: Director: Tim Story Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mr. »

Can Marvel Actors Play Multiple Characters in the McU?

18 September 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Joaquin Phoenix turned down the lead role in Doctor Strange, it was because he couldn't handle the multi-picture deal enforced by Marvel Studios. But a plethora of other actors and actresses are turning down certain roles in these superhero adventures for a completely different reason. They're afraid a better character might come along. And it would be impossible to play two different characters in the McU, right? Well, maybe not. Zachary Levi, who plays a smaller, yet very important role in Thor: The Dark World, posed this question to Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. And his answer may surprise you.

Some where surprised to see Chris Evans win the title role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger. Simply because he'd already played Johnny Storm (aka the Human Torch) in both 2005's Fantastic Four and the 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Some felt it »

Zachary Levi Comments On A Possible Return As Fandral In Thor: Ragnarok

18 September 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zachary Levi was supposed to play Fandral in the first Thor movie, but his commitments to Chuck meant that Marvel had to instead cast Josh Dallas. Funnily enough though, when Dallas was too busy to return for the sequel, Levi got a call from Kevin Feige to take over the role he was supposed to have back in 2011.

What kind of part The Warriors Three will play in Thor: Ragnarok still remains to be seen, and Levi is currently in the dark about his Marvel Cinematic Universe future:

“I have no idea. They have not told me anything. I hope so. I think that’d be pretty fun to get the gang back together, the Warriors Three. But there’s a reason why the movie’s called Thor and not The Warriors Three. They’ve got to do what’s right for Thor. I think they’re shooting for next »

When Chris Evans was sought after and eventually won the role of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avengers, some fans were a little bent out of shape about that because the actor had already played the Human Torch in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four. To some, it just seemed like overkill to have […]

DVD Review: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

13 September 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ There was a shot in Joss Whedon's box office behemoth Avengers Assemble (2012) which set fan's tongues a-wagging when it popped up in a trailer. The camera panned around the team of superheroes as they regrouped against an overwhelming alien hoard. If sequels are supposed to be bigger and better, then its lucky that the equivalent shot in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) is not just superior, not just more impressive, but arguably the most spine-tingling visual interpretation of the comic book form ever committed to celluloid. Earth's Mightiest Heroes are back and it's with a right-hook that floors the competition. Chris Evans' Captain America would be oh-so proud.

With Warner Bros' DC Universe gearing up for its big push next year with Batman v Superman and Marvel's own the Fantastic Four back on screens in July, Whedon has delivered a film that outdoes his own previous offering and sets »

“I’ve Gotten Carried Away with Graininess in the Past and I Probably Will Again”: Dp Sean Price Williams on Queen of Earth

10 September 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The major studios’ current preference for selecting the shepherds of their franchise properties is to pluck directors from the relatively obscurity of indiedom. Colin Trevorrow went from Safety Not Guaranteed to Jurassic World. Josh Trank moved from Chronicle to Fantastic Four. Jon Watts leaped from Cop Car to the reboot of the reboot of Spider-Man. Alex Ross Perry opted for the opposite approach. After his breakthrough film Listen Up Philip, Perry stripped down his budget, cast, and crew for a character piece about a pair of female friends (Elisabeth Moss, Inherent Vice’s Katherine Waterston) whose relationship unravels during a week-long […] »

Why Superhero Movies Will Continue To Thrive, According To Chris Evans

7 September 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Chris Evans doesn.t just talk the talk when it comes to superhero movies. The dude walks the walk. Remember, Evans was holding down the fort as a member of The Fantastic Four before being in an Ff movie was a curse and a burden. And, naturally, he has been crushing it as Captain America in a steady stream of Marvel movies. So when he weighs in on the state of the genre, and the way it can pave its future, it.s worth sitting up and paying notice.   Evans was promoting his directorial debut Before We Go, and spoke with Collider about superhero movies, in general, and how they can continue to evolve. From Evans. standpoint, it.s really a matter of letting filmmakers find an original tone inside of a superhero movie, and figuring out the balance of larger-the-life comic-book content within the confines of the overall story. »
