Although we’re yet to see any footage of Superman in Justice League, Warner Bros. has released a new banner for its upcoming DC blockbuster featuring Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel alongside Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Batman (Ben Affleck), and The Flash (Ezra Miller); check it out here…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, »

Over the past few days we’ve heard confirmation that Chris Evans (Captain America), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) and Don Cheadle (War Machine) are all set to feature in the currently-in-production Avengers 4, and now Sebastian Stan has revealed that he’ll also be back as The Winter Soldier in the currently untitled sequel.
“I still haven’t read a script for this next one,” Stan told CinemaBlend. “For this fourth one. All I know is I’m going down there in October, and that’s all I know. I still actually haven’t read a script for the last one. All I knew was what I was involved in, and I was kept on a very ‘need to know’ basis. Maybe that’s the norm. But it’s a family system. There’s a trust, and there’s a sense of knowledge between the writers and the directors, with Kevin Feige, »

Last year, Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that this movie marked a new beginning for the McU, hinting that it, and the untitled Avengers 4, will bring the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. While no specifics were given about the story, this notion was mirrored by star Benedict Cumberbatch, who teased how massive this adventure is during a recent interview. Here's what he had to say about how all-encompassing this sequel actually is.
"It's ten years coming. It's just a huge, huge, huge amount of work, huge amount of storylines and it's all sort of pointing to this confrontation. It's amazing to part of it even though I'm late to the party, it's very cool one to be part of it."
The actor made these comments during a new interview with Digital Spy, where he was promoting his new film The Child in Time. »
A select few have recently been shown an early test screening of the upcoming Justice League film. While the audience has been sworn to secrecy, it has been let slip that at least one audience member (allegedly) called the movie: “fine”. Take that how you will.
However, that’s not why we are here. There’s another interesting piece of news that has leaked since footage was screened: apparently we have confirmation on the rumour that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor has been cut from the film entirely. As reported by Batman-News over on their Twitter page today:

Many fans were pretty irritated with Marvel over the summer. Kevin Feige and Co. decided to debut the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War at both Disney's D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con. Even after playing exclusively at both of those events for a select few, Marvel refused to release the trailer online. Now, after months of waiting, Marvel Studios may finally be releasing the Avengers: Infinity War trailer online next week.
We can't say that this news is coming from anyone official, so it should be regarded as rumor for now. That said, Marvel Newz is reporting that the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer will make its way online on September 29. That also just so happens to be the same day that Marvel's Inhumans airs on ABC. Marvel has debuted trailers for big movies during ABC Marvel shows before, so this would seem like a logical move and the »
Despite rumors that he would be returning to the set of Justice League to assist Joss Whedon in finishing the film, it looks like Zack Snyder has stepped for good. Speaking to Wired about his latest film Snow Steam Iron, a short film that he has shot entirely on an iPhone, the director provided an update in regards to where he stands with Justice League.
Snyder stressed that returning to production would be “unfair in a lot of ways” before going into further detail: “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job. But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.”
As we know, Zack Snyder decided to step down from directing duties following »

This summer, after years of fighting, Marvel Studios finally brought Spider-Man home. Having managed to wrestle temporary control of one of their greatest heroes back from Sony, they produced Spider-Man: Homecoming to build on the character’s introduction in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland did a great job of introducing us to our third iteration of the hero in just over a decade and the film hit cinemas full of promise.
And when it arrived, boy did it deliver. Eschewing yet another contrived origin story in favour subtle nods and clever attempts at weaving its history into its present, Spider-Man: Homecoming was the first great Spidey movie since Sam Raimi’s 2004 sequel. In what was essentially a huge-scale action movie masquerading as a high school movie, pretty much everything worked. The lead actors carried their roles supremely well, with Holland in particular looking like he has the acting chops (and, »

Incredible to think that after the plethora of Stephen King film adaptations over the years (this year alone boasts five), that his beloved Horror story It, has – until now – not had a big screen retelling. The nearest we have gotten is the flawed but ambitious Tommy Lee Wallace Mini-Series from 1990, which featured an iconic turn by Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. However, if you only have this version of the story in mind upon entering Andres (or Andy as he is credited) Muschietti’s adaptation, you may be a little startled, as this is far darker, far more intense and truly the king of King adaptations.
Utilising the dark cinematography (by Chung-Hoon Chung) and CGI-aided scares that helped him make a mark with his 2013 debut Mama, Muschietti beautifully and savagely captures the essence of the source material, while leaving a distinctive imprint of his own. Set mostly in »

Warner Bros. has unveiled a new banner for its upcoming DC superhero blockbuster Justice League which sees Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman taking centre stage alongside Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, Ben Affleck’s Batman, and Ezra Miller’s Flash; take a look here…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Spider-Man has always been my favorite comic book character. As ridiculous as his villains and antics are at times, it’s the humanization of the characters within his books that always intrigued me. The desire to do good, or the desperation to… Continue Reading →

Meanwhile, speaking to EW, Miller has discussed one change between the Justice League version of The Flash and the comic book incarnation, stating that: “Well, you know, look, I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie]. Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that. We want to apologize to the fans who are mad about the ring thing. I know the ring is the coolest thing about the DC universe. It was a little hard for us to sell in this version of this universe right now. Bear with us! »

Many fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are longing for the day when all of the publisher’s characters are back under the control of Marvel Studios, finally allowing the McU to replicate the full Marvel universe of the comic books.
Marvel managed to bring the wall-crawler back home by cutting a deal with Sony to use Spider-Man within the McU, leading to a lot of speculation that a similar arrangement could be worked out with Fox for the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
Although Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has dismissed this possibility on a number of occasions, most recently back in June following the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, comic book legend Stan Lee remains optimistic that all of the characters will find themselves back under the same roof one day, even claiming that Marvel is actively working on achieving that goal.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going strong for nearly a decade. In the years since Iron Man was released, Marvel Studios has done a fine job of getting the rights back to most of their characters, but there are some notable exceptions. Mostly, 20th Century Fox still owns the rights to Fantastic Four and the X-Men. However, according to Stan Lee, Marvel Studios will get the rights back to those characters. Eventually.
As reported by Comicbook.com, Stan Lee recently appeared at Wizard World Nashville. While speaking to the crowd, he revealed that, at least as far as he's concerned, Marvel Studios will get the rights back to X-Men and Fantastic Four "sooner or later." Here's what he had to say about it.
"Sooner or later, they're going to get the rights back to all our characters. They're working on it, and they're still making X-Men movies and stuff. »
If there’s one thing Marvel fans would kill for, it would be the chance to have one, big cohesive superhero universe on film. Don’t get us wrong, the McU is mighty impressive, but it remains unfinished thanks to the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four lying with 20th Century Fox.
Due to the studio’s consistent failure to produce an enjoyable movie for the latter, fans have routinely called for them to send Marvel’s First Family back home. And even Hugh Jackman has said he would play Wolverine again if the character moved to the McU. Despite all this, though, we’ve been told by execs from both parties that there are no discussions taking place about Fox returning any of their characters.

Once known primarily as the founding father of Spider-Man, Hulk, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four and so many other great Marvel characters, Stan Lee is now considered the undisputed king of cameos.
From Captain America: Civil War and The Defenders to this year’s Thor: Ragnarok, not a Marvel project goes by without some cute nod to the all-around industry legend – be it in the form of a well-placed poster or actual appearance. And you’ll be pleased to know that Stan Lee has already gone ahead and filmed cameos for five upcoming McU movies: Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled sequel, Avengers 4, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Black Panther, and the forthcoming Ragnarok, which is said to include Lee’s funniest stinger to date.
It makes sense, too, given all of those named projects are simmering in various stages of development. In fact, the only notable absentee is Captain Marvel, »

Despite the rave reviews it received upon release – garnering just as much praise as the much-beloved Wonder Woman – Spider-Man: Homecoming has had a rather vocal contingent of detractors. Many movie-goers, even long-running Spider-Man fans, were unhappy with Marvel Studios for making another solo movie with the character so soon after his other, Sony-branded appearances. This is hardly the wall-crawler’s debut on the big screen. The character was first brought to the silver screen as part of director Sam Raimi’s monstrously popular Spider-Man trilogy back in 2002. Its first film, along with the cinematic debut of X-Men two years

Marvel movies are big business, from the Avengers franchise and all of the interconnected heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on screens both big and small, to Fox's ever-expanding world of the X-Men and Deadpool, to the Sony steered Spider-man movies, going all the way back to Sam Raimi's original trilogy. But that doesn't mean every big name actor and A list talent in Hollywood wants to be associated with these characters. Some heavyweight actors have straight up said no way when Marvel came knocking. So, who would do such a thing?
Since becoming its own studio, which was later acquired by Disney in one of the biggest studio deals this side of Lucasfilm, Marvel has had no problem attracting top-tier A-list talent to its roster; the talent who commands major ticket grosses and critical acclaim alike. Who doesn't want to suit up as a one of Marvel's Merry Mutants, »
Hollywood still churns out biopics often enough that one has to wonder why certain ones haven't happened yet. Namely, how hasn't someone decided to make a biopic about Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee? It is one of those things that is inevitably going to happen and if it ever does, we may just have a great candidate to play him. It turns out that Leonardo DiCaprio has expressed interest to Stan the man himself.
As reported by Aipt!, the 94-year-old Stan Lee recently appeared at Wizard World Nashville and the subject of a biopic about his life came up. According to Lee, he is neighbors with Leonardo DiCaprio and the two have actually discussed it. Here's what he had to say about it.
"Believe it or not, I've already discussed it with Leonardo DiCaprio. He's a neighbor of mine and we were talking one day some months ago, and he said, »

Wein's career spanned decades and you can find his fingerprints all over the comics industry in addition to his two most famous creations. Shortly after he co-created Wolverine alongside John Romita Sr. and Roy Thomas, Wein, with artist Dave Cockrum, revived the previously failing X-Men in 1975 with the larger, more colorful lineup that launched the team to pop culture immortality. During his extended stay at Marvel Comics (including a year as editor-in-chief), Wein took a shot at writing many of Marvel's flagship books, including long (and fan favorite) runs on Marvel Team-Up and Amazing Spider-Man.

Stan Lee is one of the most recognizable faces in the comic book genre, thanks to his many cameo appearances in film and television adaptations of various works. He’s currently 94, and first entered the comic book industry 77 years ago, at the age of 17. Through family connections, he went to work for Timely Comics in 1939 – a small organization that would eventually evolve into Marvel.
During his career – in addition to occasional stints working on various established DC titles – he collaborated regularly with Marvel colleague Jack Kirby and others to create Spider-Man, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Daredevil and Doctor Strange, to name just a few. He also led the charge against the Comics Code Authority, which sought to censor comic book content, and was instrumental in transforming Marvel Comics from a small publishing operation into a vast multimedia corporation of international renown.
