You may not like their methods. You may not like that they cross the line. But they get results. And if you get in their way, you’re going down… Here’s your new look inside Squadron Supreme #1, the explosive new series from Eisner Award winning writer James Robinson (Scarlet Witch, Starman), critically acclaimed artist Leonard Kirk (Fantastic Four) and covers by legendary painter Alex Ross.

To them all that matters is the safety of Earth – and they don’t ask permission or care about your rules. Their first target? Namor!

Is Universal on its way to botching its planned series of Universal Monster reboots? Based on a piece published yesterday in Variety, it's certainly starting to sound that way. According to the article, which features interviews with Universal head Donna Langley and writers Alex Kurtzman ("Transformers") and Chris Morgan ("Furious 7"), the studio has hired a stable of storyboard artists, designers and writers to bring such characters as Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, The Mummy and the Wolfman to life for contemporary audiences. The iconic monsters, each of which has a specific writer or writers attached, will inhabit a "shared universe" in a series of interconnected films set in modern day. As Kurtzman put it: “The idea is that we have a deep bench of brains to consult with about how their monster fits into our world as we go forward." Added Morgan: ““This is not a heightened world. We’re exploring »

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is a weekly column about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation.
This Week: Simon Kinberg has been letting loose with factoids about X-Men: Apocalypse two new TV shows and, of course, Deadpool. What does that mean for the unified franchise and are these TV shows even going to be picked up. Also: have we given up on Chris Pine being a Green Lantern?
If the X-Men universe over at 20th Century Fox has a mouthpiece these days it is Simon Kinberg, writer and producer of X-Men: Days of Future Past and Apocalypse. He’s like Kevin Feige is at Marvel in the sense that what he says ends up being true because he’s allowed to let slip new tidbits about projects in progress.
Collider has been doing a bang-up job staying on top of Kinberg and Kinberg has been letting »

50 fabulous documentary films, covering hard politics through to music, money and films that never were...
Thanks to streaming services such as Netflix, we’ve never had better access to documentaries. A whole new audience can discover that these real life stories are just as thrilling, entertaining, and incredible as the latest big-budget blockbuster. What’s more, they’re all true too. But with a new found glut of them comes the ever more impossible choice, what’s worth your time? Below is my pick of the 50 best modern feature length documentaries.
I’ve defined modern as being from 2000 onwards, which means some of the greatest documentaries ever made will not feature here. I’m looking at you Hoop Dreams.

And finally, philipphilip99 asks:
Have you ever given up on a novel? If so, why?
Great last question. Generally I don't start a book until I know everything about it, including the fact that it's probably worth writing. Frankly, life's too short to write ten or twenty thousand words and then throw them away. I'm currently writing a new novel, Magpie Murders, and I'm 90,000 words in. In fact, I'm off now to write the next chapter (my biggest fear being that I'll be run over by a bus on the way home).
Can I thank everyone for these great questions - it's been a real pleasure doing this with the Guardian. And thanks also to the fastest typist on the planet »

Deadpool is one of the most anticipated movies of 2016, and in a surprising turn of events, the cast and filmmakers behind the movie haven't been shy about sharing its secrets. Still, at that, it's easy to assume that this entire movie takes place on a bridge. Today, we get two new photos and a ton of story details that dispute that. As it turns out, offering up plenty of behind-the-scenes details to satiate fans has actually enabled the director and his cast to keep quite a bit of the movie shrouded in mystery.
The latest two photos show Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson both in and out of his iconic Deadpool costume. The first image has Wade about to go on the operating table under the watchful eye of Gina Carano's Angel Dust and Ed Skrein's Ajax. While the second photo shows the leading man having a deep »

Plot details are under wraps for “Realm,” which has a script by “Predators” writer Alex Litvak. The story is based on an original idea from Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor and the X-Men.
Li Bingbing will also produce alongside Gill Champion from Stan Lee Global Entertainment and Gregory Ouanhon of Fundamental, who will oversee production on behalf of their companies. Fundamental’s Gary Glushon will also executive produce.
“What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that,” said Lee. “It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an international woman character, and the ability to do so has been different from anything we’ve ever done! I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it. »

The drama that has played out on HBO’s “Project Greenlight” this season has been part of the groundswell of discussion within the entertainment industry about diversity.
That’s what panelists at the Produced By NY conference agreed Saturday in a session focused on tactics for boosting diversity across film and TV. The panelists included producer Effie Brown, who had a much-publicized confrontation with “Greenlight” exec producer Matt Damon over the issue of diversity in the show that revolves around giving an up-and-coming director the challenge of delivering a movie.
Damon sparked outrage when he said diversity in filmmaking was about casting of actors rather than behind the scenes.
Brown told the crowd at Time Warner Center that she flagged his comment as a flashpoint for HBO and “Greenlight” producers before the series aired. She said she was surprised that it remained in the final cut of the first episode. »

Trevor Noah spent six minutes of The Daily Show Tuesday night riffing on the online protests against the casting of a black stormtrooper in the upcoming Star Wars film. "Stop complaining, racists," the host said. "You had your Star Wars movie already." The screen displayed an image of CGI character Jar Jar Binks in The Phantom Menace.
A small subset of white supremacists expressed their indignation about the casting of actor John Boyega, who is black, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens by using the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII. USA Today »

Letters by Richard Starkings and Oscar Gongora
Published by Marvel Comics
In 2001, Brian Michael Bendis, the writer of Marvel’s probably most kid friendly title Ultimate Spider-Man, was tasked with penning the title that launched Marvel’s mature readers’ imprint, or Max. This was the equivalent of the Vertigo imprint for DC Comics and ended up encompassing many other titles, including Garth Ennis’ critically acclaimed runs on The Punisher and Fury and Rawhide Kid, the first Marvel book to feature a gay lead. He was joined by interior artist Michael Gaydos, who was coming off a short run on the Image Comics incarnation of the cult vigilante The Crow, prolific colorist of dark and gritty comics Matt Hollingsworth (Preacher, Death: The Time of Your Life), and talented cover multimedia artist David Mack (Kabuki). Gaydos has the »

Marvel Studios echoed Fox's statement to insist there is no current agreement for characters such as the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, Galactus and the Silver Surfer to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Rights to those heroes and villains remain at Fox, along with the X-Men.
Original article:The Fantastic Four had a rough time at the box office this summer, but Marvel could be about to swoop in and rescue their first family.
According to Den of Geek, Marvel Studios have struck a deal with 20th Century Fox to bring Reed Richards and gang into the McU.

Here's a rumor that was quickly shot down. Earlier this morning, Den of Geeks claimed that Marvel and Disney had won back the rights to the Fantastic Four franchise. But now, EW's Anthony Breznican has managed to contact both 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios. And guess what? They are refuting this rumor. Simply stated: It's not true! Of course, the same thing was said about Spider-Man joining the McU when that Sony rumor broke. Here we are, almost a year later, and Peter Parker will be making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War.
That's to say, it still might happen! The original rumor claimed that Marvel and Disney were planning a Fantastic Four reboot for 2020. That it would be a part of their Phase 4 line-up of superhero movies. Just last week, Disney had announced 3 mystery movies under the Marvel banner. Of course Fantastic Four was »
Update: Marvel and Fox have refuted this rumor...For now. Here is the original story: Is it true? Has Marvel struck a deal with 20th Century Fox that sees them getting the rights back to the Fantastic Four franchise? And is Marvel and Disney planning a new movie for 2020? That's the rumor Den of Geeks is running with this morning. And it's news that has been heavily speculated since the Fantastic Four reboot opened this past August, becoming one of the biggest bombs of the year. Though, how http://movieweb.com/fantastic-four-2-20th-century-fox-commitment/Marvel and Fox reached the deal, if true, is a little unexpected.
Yesterday, we reported that there are two X-Men live-action TV shows happening, with Marvel and Fox collaborating on each. Hellfire is coming from the Fox Network and centers on the notorious billionaire's gang and longtime rival of the X-Men, the Hellfire Club. Legion is »

20th Century Fox's Escape from New York remake has been gestating for a while, but now it is officially moving forward with a script from the creator of hit BBC crime series Luther.
