Up until now Feige and his film studio reported directly to Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac ‘Ike’ Perlmutter, but that is now no longer the case, according to the trade.
“Marvel Studios is taking the next logical step in its integration with The Walt Disney Studios, joining Pixar and Lucasfilm in centralising many of its film-related functions in Burbank, with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and co-president Louis D’Esposito continuing to lead the Marvel Studios team reporting to Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn,” said a Disney spokesperson.
The move kind of makes sense due to the nature of the business, though it is said that the television enterprises like Daredevil amd the upcoming Jessica Jones series will still remain under the watch of Marvel Entertainment. »

Daredevil has been hailed as Marvel’s best comic book adaptation to date, a surprise when you consider both the quality of the movies and the fact that no one had much faith in this new take on the Man Without Fear after the disastrous 2003 movie starring Ben Affleck. Between the incredible fight sequences and

Recently, romance anthologies have made a little bit of comeback with former DC editor Janelle Asselin’s Fresh Romance title and even little one-shots like the Harley Quinn Valentines Special and 2013’s revival of the classic DC series Young Romance. Now, Marvel has gotten into the romance game with Secret Wars: Secret Love bringing a variety of Marvel veterans and newcomers to tell some fun love stories. There is an homage to Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr’s run on Daredevil complete with a battle against Typhoid Mary, a special team-up between Robbie Reyes and Kamala Khan in the Ghost Racers universe, an extremely non-traditional date night »

Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four was supposed to be a fresh start for the franchise. While the 2005 and 2007 movies captured some of the spirit of Marvel’s First Family, they were still terrible, so this reboot was conceived with the goal to establish the team as a group moviegoers could take seriously. The prospect of a “dark” and “gritty” version of the characters who kicked off the Marvel Universe back in 1961 was a turn off for some fans, but with the Ultimate Comics seemingly serving as his main inspiration, it appeared as if Trank was heading in the right direction with his contemporary retelling of their origin story.
With Fox apparently gearing up to have the Fantastic Four meet the X-Men in a crossover movie a few years from now, they too clearly had high hopes for this reboot. Things didn’t go as planned though, and »

Hotly anticipated superhero mashup Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice isn’t even nearly in cinemas yet, and already we’ve had a whole host of tie-ins and spin-offs announced – a veritable Justice League of DC superhero goodness, from Aquaman to Wonder Woman all the way through to Shazam (!) and Green Lantern (again). One of the more obvious candidates for his own series is the DC Universe’s new linchpin Batman (sorry Supes), as portrayed by Ben Affleck.
We all expected that Affleck’s Batman would eventually get his own solo outing, and surprising precisely no-one that’s been shaping up to be the case. Affleck is reportedly in talks to write and direct his very own Batman trilogy, which would see the actor under the cowl for at least another ten years. Obviously this all depends on the performance of Dawn Of Justice but a new Bat-trilogy »

By now, anyone who has read my blogs will know how much of a Horror fan I am. If you haven’t, firstly where have you been all this time? (Just kidding, I know you have a life. But seriously, where have you been?). Secondly, I like anything weird and scary.
I was recently watching a Horror film as you do, and was very disappointed with the outcome, especially with all the hype it received on release. I will not give away what this film was as I do not want to discredit it further than it needs to; but there was no other way to describe this film as pure rubbish. All I will say it was a remake of an eighties classic that I love.
Later that evening, I was checking a social network website trying to waste a bit of time. I »
The bad news just keeps rolling in for Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. The film has had terrible reviews (read ours here and here), it’s director has shamed the movie publicly, Fox have pointed the finger of blame at him (and apparently locked him out of editing the film), it’s bombed at the box office and some rumours suggest Fox may even cancel the sequel for Deadpool 2.
But, it’s at least broken one record.
Fantastic Four has earned the lowest CinemaScore for a studio-produced superhero movie movie. Its C- rating is lower than Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (C+), Batman & Robin (C+) and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (C). It’s also lower than The Green Hornet (B+) and Daredevil, Elektra and Catwoman, which all earned a B.
The previous Fantastic Four movies also scored a B each.

Well, it’s not been a good weekend for Fantastic Four. The troubled production of Josh Trank’s latest adaptation of the comic book has been rather public, with the director tweeting his displeasure, Fox saying it was his fault and sources saying Fox cut scenes from the movie and kept him out of the editing bay. There was even news that the proposed sequel (announced before the film bombed at the box office) is going to be replaced with Deadpool 2.
But if you were wondering if Marvel could ever get Fantastic Four back now that the franchise is on the rocks (like they did with The Hulk, Punisher, Thor and Daredevil), then you may be waiting some time.
Whenever a property is sold to a studio, they are given a certain amount of time to announce a movie and go into production before the rights go back to the original seller. »

The opening day numbers are in, and there is no way around it. Fantastic Four is a bomb. It flopped big on it's opening day, pulling in $11.3 million. This does not bode well for 20th Century Fox. And now the sequel is in question. Even though the studio already issued a June 2017 release date for The Fantastic Four 2, a mighty big miracle is going to have to happen for things to move forward with this same cast.
That said, Fantastic Four still has a chance to take the #1 spot at the box office this weekend, racing last week's winner Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation to the finish line. Right now, the race is still too early to call. Friday's tally was down from last year at this time, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pulling in $25.6 million in its opening day. It is unclear if bad word of mouth ruined Fantastic Four's chances for box office glory, »
“It ain't how you hit the mat . . . . it's how you get up.” - Matt Murdock After the live action film rights for Daredevil reverted back to Marvel Studios at the end of 2012, many fans were wondering what would happen next for the Man Without Fear. The 2003 release of Mark Steven Johnson's Daredevil film was generally seen as a financial and critical disappointment, becoming something of a stillborn franchise in that all plans for sequels were indefinitely postponed. Instead, the studio opted to pursue a spin-off film with 2005's Elektra, which was so poorly received that it seemed to kill any further interest in Daredevil as a property despite the rich quality of the characters and decades of source material to pull from. Still, Fox would retain the rights to Daredevil for seven years past the release of any film based on the property, per the licensing agreement »

The studio is teaming up with Netflix once again, this time to adapt comic book series "Alias" (no relation to the Jennifer Garner-led ABC hit) into a new show loosely connected to their previous smash "Daredevil" that took the streaming network by storm in April.

It’s hard to stomach that Mark Waid’s Daredevil, which has been hitting stands every month for around four years, is about to end, but it is indeed going to be that time very soon. There’s a feeling of culmination in this penultimate issue, bringing back plot threads from not just the start of the “Marvel Now!” relaunch in 2014, but even before that from the first major part of Waid’s run. The result is solid modernistic superhero storytelling with high stakes, tough battles, and a constant questioning of the hero’s philosophy and capability. It’s a great read, page-for-page.
Thanks to all of the different threads that have been building in this run for the past few years, Daredevil finds himself in the middle of quite the storm. The stress is palpable, each »

Been a long time since a new hair cut has caused such talk.
Scarlett Johansson has been spotted returning to the "Captain America: Civil War" set after a break from filming. The catch? She's got a new hairdo and Just Jared has posted the shots of the actress sporting her own natural hair dyed Black Widow's signature red color - but way shorter.
When not on-set in a more regular Black Widow style wig, Johansson usually kept her blond hair intact - like she did back in May shooting scenes for 'Civil War' with a long red wig as seen here. This has immediately sparked speculation that Black Widow will get her locks chopped off in the film into a pixie-style reminiscent of her appearance in Frank Miller's "Daredevil" comic run.

Are you ready for Black Widow to get a makeover? Seems Marvel might be! Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted away from the Captain America: Civil War set sporting a new hairdo that she tried very hard to hide. An actress with a different hair style wouldn't normally be anything new to report, but the shorn hair is still dyed Black Widow red, a color Scarlett Johansson doesn't usually keep when out of character. Is Natasha Romanova getting a drastic new look?
Since her debut on the big screen in 2010's Iron Man 2, Black Widow has altered her appearance in both hair and suit in each following movie, with Scarlett Johansson showing up in 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. And her hair has gradually gotten shooter with each new adventure. But the 'pixie' cut, which is buzzed close to the scalp, »
As you can see from the image below (via Just Jared), Scarlett Johansson has been spotted out and about with a very different hairdo than we're used to seeing. This would normally be no big deal, but the fact that she's a) seemingly trying to conceal it, and b) it's still a Black Widow shade of red, definitely appears to indicate that this could be her look for Captain America: Civil War. Bear in mind that the comic book version of Black Widow sported a similar short style during Frank Miller's Daredevil run, so a change of look for the character wouldn't be too huge a departure from the source material. We've obviously seen the actress on the Atlanta set with her now familiar long haired look, so perhaps this new do will factor into the plot somehow. What do you guys think? »
A house is not a home, as Ben Affleck will soon learn. E! News confirms that he will rent Brooke Shields' home in L.A.'s Pacific Palisades after his family returns from Atlanta, where Jennifer Garner recently began shooting Miracles From Heaven. Ben won't live in Brooke's house forever, though. E! News has learned that the exes merely wanted a backup if construction on their own home goes long. "It's for convenience sake," a source explains. "They wanted another option." When Ben and Jennifer announced the end of their 10-year marriage last month, the Daredevil co-stars explained that they will live on the same property, but not in the same house, as they continue to co-parent »
