22 Actors Who Crossed The Marvel/DC Movie Divide

23 November 2015 9:46 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel/DC

When something becomes as insanely popular as the comic book movie genre, it’s inevitable that a hell of a lot of extremely famous actors will lend their talents to it. And as with the binary split of the fanbases, typical thinking says you’re either Marvel or you’re DC. Crossing the divide would surely be a gross act of betrayal?

Surprisingly, though, there are actually a high number of stars who have appeared in both.

For some fans, they are committing the eighth deadly sin. Such is the rivalry between Marvel and DC that they argue actors should pick a side and stick with it, especially if their first role struck a bum note. Hence why Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman, after murdering Daredevil, initially resulted in a very hostile backlash from comic book movie aficionados.

But Hollywood is a hell of a lot more »

Red: Warren Ellis’ comic series is becoming a TV show

17 August 2015 12:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It’s already inspired two films, but now it looks like Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's Red is heading to the small screen…

Remember Red and Red 2? The Bruce Willis-starring films based on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner's comic book series Red? Of course you do. Well, now, the same property is being adapted for TV.

NBC is the network behind this idea, and they’ve got Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber - who wrote the 2010 film, and its sequel – at the helm. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian – who produced the films – are involved, too.

There’s no word yet on what the announcement of this TV series means for the rumours of a Red 3 film, but our best guess is that the TV show has taken its place, seeing as so much the behind-the-scenes talent has jumped ship to the telly realm. That’s »

Deadline has revealed that NBC is developing a small screen adaptation of Red, which is being produced by the creative team behind the 2010 movie and its 2013 sequel.

Written by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, who penned both movies, the small screen take on Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic book series “will retain the core concept of the films but will be set in a more grounded and authentic world, focusing on the characters’ darkly hilarious struggles to survive civilian life as they simultaneously fight for and against the very organization that threw them out.”

Red tells the story of a group of former CIA agents designated ‘Retired Extremely Dangerous’, who are forced back into action after an assassination attempt.

Lionsgate TV is producing the series, alongside Di Bonaventura Pictures Television.

Before long, ever movie will become a TV show in the future. It's certainly not a new idea, as many movies have gotten the TV adaptation treatment. But over the past year, each network has ramped up this idea, abandoning new ideas to instead focus on series that already have a built in audience and title recognition. The latest movie series to head to the small screen is Red, which debuted in 2010 and was followed by a sequel in 2013. NBC is behind this new iteration, though it's not known if Summit Entertainment has now abandoned the idea of another big screen sequel.
