Although the X-men franchise has had its fair share of critics over the last decade, few audience members would question the iconic status of its primary leading man. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is arguably the most popular and recognizable face of the entire superhero genre (with the possible exception of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man). The Australian star has been a key aspect of the genre’s rise in popularity, and has even helped pave the way for the multitude of superhero outings we have now.
After portraying the adamantium-laced mutant for fifteen years, seven films and over $3Bn worth of box-office glory, many fans have been wondering when Jackman would finally be handing his claws in. It seems we may now have the answer, thanks to an Instagram post from the man himself:
Wolverine …One Last Time. Hj

Stan Lee is wheeling and dealing ... unloading one of his mansions and willing to sweeten the deal with Spidey. Our real estate sources tell us ... sure, you can snag Stan's ritzy pad in the posh Bird Streets of L.A. for $5 mil. Now here's the sweetener ... he's willing to throw in the autographed, life-size Spider-Man statue in the entry, but not for free -- it's $25k extra. The extra cash will go to charity.

I’m half Japanese. I’m an american. I’ve lived in Japan for a lot of my earlier childhood and 1/4 of my life. I have land there. I knew ramen was life since the ’80s, and not cheap college student menu before U.S. hipsters of the past several years did. I even rocked a bento strong in elementary school, some of which were Macross branded. I was introduced to Macross through Robotech though, as I suspect most people in the U.S. were, but in my years in Japan, I’ve never come across anyone (the count is officially zero) who seem to care more about how Robotech came into being as I have in english speaking messaegeboards in the 21st century. They have theirs, we have ours. As a child of both worlds it was never really a conflict, so it’s always puzzled me why it »

You can add another comic-book-to-tv project to your watch list – dystopian sci-fi Lazarus from Greg Rucka and Michael Lark...
Legendary Television has picked up the TV rights to the still-ongoing comic book series Lazarus, it was announced yesterday, after an apparently competitive war of bidding.
The comic – created by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark – is a dystopian science-fiction tale. It’s set in a world where 16 wealthy families rule over all of society. There’s a bit of superpower-esque twist, too – each family has an immortal ‘Lazarus’ on their side.
These Lazarus characters (Lazari?) are genetically engineered to be un-killable in order to protect their families. Forever Carlyle, the series protagonist, is one of these characters.
However, there’s a little more to the comic than that short summary can do justice to, it’s a cunning deconstruction of the class system which provides food for thought as well as fights and stuff, »
Twentieth Century Fox are set to revive (rehash?) the terrifying classic 80s horror Poltergeist – this time in 3D. and we have some new images from the film – produced by the legend that is Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, Drag Me To Hell) – to share with you.
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Grudge) and director Gil Kenan contemporise the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
Poltergeist is directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House) and stars Sam Rockwell (Moon), Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married), Jared Harris (Mad Men) and Jane Adams (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The film will be released in UK and Ireland cinemas on Friday 22nd May 2015.

I thought it had been determined the new Spider-Man, which will allegedly be making his debut in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: Civil War, was going to be of the Miles Morales variety, a version of the comic book character of African American and Puerto Rican descent. However, a new rumor from Badass Digest reports Mateus Ward, a 16-year-old white actor currently starring on TNT's "Murder in the First", auditioned for the role would suggest otherwise. Of course, they may just have a blanket request out for any actors of a certain age without any kind of race requirements, but the other aspect of this report people are concerned with is the actor's age as this would give fans a genuine teenager in the role rather than the 25-year-old Tobey Maguire when the first Spider-Man was released or the 29-year-old Andrew Garfield when the first The Amazing Spider-Man was released. »

The Marvel-related rumors just keep coming. Yesterday, a batch of news hit the web concerning the fate of a major character in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, as well as listing a potential brigade of characters expected to appear in Captain America: Civil War.
Throw into the mix talk from director Joss Whedon teasing even More Avengers for the sequel and it appears as though the blockbuster intends to pack every frame of its running time with a revolving door of characters old and new.
Now, we know a little bit more about who exactly will form the “new” Avengers team by the end of the film. If you wish to head into Age of Ultron not knowing anything though, we suggest clicking back now. If, however, you’d like to know who the new line up will consist of, continue reading below the gallery.

"The door to their world could close at any moment. I've got to go in and get her out." A commercial for the Poltergeist remake teases more horrors for the Bowen family.

By switching up its summer release slate, 20th Century Fox are now faced with upping its marketing techniques for Poltergeist. Originally positioned for a late July opening, the spooky remake was moved up by two months and is now set to open nationwide at the end of May. That’s only eight weeks to build anticipation, muster excitement and to generally make sure there are sufficient bums on seats when the movie debuts.
February marked the arrival of the film’s first teaser trailers, both of which sought to distance this rebooted modern day version from Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original. Once again, the introduction of a new type of evil unseen ghostie is front and center in this first TV spot, which you can check out for yourself above. While the domestic and international previews flesh out the backstory and pile on more scares, this creepy morsel is still well worth a watch. »

Former Sony executive Amy Pascal has come aboard Sony Pictures' "Little Women" remake and has hired Sarah Polley, Oscar-nominated writer/director of "Stories We Tell" and "Away From Her," to adapt the classic Louisa May Alcott novel.

These days, movie tie-in games have developed a poor reputation, and seen mostly as quick and dirty cash-ins than enjoyable gaming experiences. That wasn’t always the case, however, and back in the day, gamers were treated to some amazing games based on their favorite films. Today, I’m looking back at some of the most enjoyable retro games that happen to be movie tie-ins!
Aladdin & The Lion King
Sure, these are two separate games, but frankly, they’re worth listing together as they’re both from Disney (based on movies of the same name) and feature some rather impressive platforming. Frankly speaking, the accolades I’m about to mention are going to be the same for both of these games, so rather than copy and paste, I’m just going to list them together.
The truth is that Disney could have Easily cranked these games out and made tons of money. »

Over the past few years, Marvel Studios has firmly established itself as one of the big players at the San Diego Comic-Con International, but with the likes of Warner’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and fellow Disney subsidiary Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens expected to feature heavily, it seems that Marvel may have made the decision to skip Hall H this year.
