Gary Collinson selects his Essential Movie Superheroes...
Although the comic-book superhero was generally overlooked by the movie industry until Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978) made you believe a man could fly, Hollywood failed to capitalise on this success over the next couple of decades and a stigma soon became attached to the genre. Save for a handful of notable exceptions (Warner Bros.’ Batman franchise was successful, but we all know how that turned out once Joel Schumacher got involved), it wasn’t until the release of the X-Men and Spider-Man movies that Hollywood really started to stand up and pay attention.
These days it seems you can’t breathe for superheroes – 2010 has seen the release of Iron Man II, Kick-Ass and Jonah Hex, while the next few years will see a host of superhero movies grace the screen including Thor and X-Men: First Class in 2011 along with the likes of Captain America, »
Long considered to be one of the greatest British stage actors of all time and arguably the finest Shakespearean actor of his generation, Sir Ian McKellen has received a Tony Award and two Academy Award nominations. Over the course of his distinguished career on the British stage, he has also received the prestigious Olivier Award five times, and in 1981 received the Tony Award for his portrayal of Mozart’s nemesis Salieri in the Broadway production of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus. Although he is certainly not the first gay British subject to be knighted by his monarch, he is nonetheless the first to receive the honour after making a public acknowledgement of his homosexuality.
In 1988, McKellen took a brave personal step when he was being interviewed on BBC radio by conservative host Peregrine Worsthorne. While McKellen had quietly lived a gay life for many years, he

Sid Meier's long-running "Civilization" strategy series is all about history, so it's fitting that it could make some of its own. The theme song to the 2005 release "Civilization IV" has been nominated for a Grammy Award for 'Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists', marking the first time that music originally composed for a video game has ever been up for the music industry's highest honor. The rousing track in question is "Baba Yetu," which later wound up on Tin's album "Calling All Dawns." That 2009 CD is up for a Grammy in two categories, 'Best Classical Crossover Album' and the above-mentioned instrumental/vocalist category.
Tin's also done music for animation and film, as well, with contributions to "X2: X-Men United" and "Lilo and Stitch 2." You can find out more about Tin at tinworksmusic.com. »

Scottish actor Alan Cumming is urging his fans to use their social networking pages to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS.
The X2 star, who is a longterm supporter of amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, embarked on a charity trip to South Africa earlier this year to highlight the cause and was overjoyed to discover that the number of cases of mother to child infection has drastically dropped in recent years and should be eradicated by 2015.
He's joining U2 rocker Bono's Red venture to continue raising awareness about the disease and how it can be prevented - and he wants his online fans to join the drive.
In a post on his blog to mark World AIDS Day this week, he writes, "I discovered that the techniques of preventing mother to child HIV infection have become incredibly successful and it is generally believed that it's possible to stop all mother/child transmission of the virus by 2015!! Do you see what that means?! Yes, the possibility of the first generation in almost 30 years where virtually no child is born with HIV. It's the best news I've heard in years!
"On this World AIDS day, the lovely people at Red want to highlight the good news and step up the efforts so that that statistic comes true. Starting with the Sydney Opera House being turned red by Bono, many landmarks around the world will be lit up in red too. And here's how you can help... turn your Facebook page red. Share a 2015 tweet using #turnred. Ask people to 'shout' out on Foursquare with #turnred.
"All of these small actions will add up. Each time someone changes their profile picture on Facebook, or tweets using #turnred, the message is mapped to a data visualizer map. I know, it' so James Bond isn't it?! Each action helps turn their time-zone on the map the color red. The more activity, the deeper the color. So help turn the whole world a deep, deep red... and look forward to the possibility of a generation free from HIV/AIDS." »

Oh, cheese, glorious cheese! Christina Aguilera gets off a bus from Iowa -- yeah, like she’s from Iowa -- in Los Angeles with nothing but a coupla bucks in her pocket (which almost immediatetly get stolen, natch) and aspirations of stardom. As a dancer. Or maybe a singer. But something flashy, anyway: it’s L.A., after all! That big Hollywood sign really is right there, shining like a beacon over the city. And then there’s the club she stumbles into one night... well, the club she tremblingly hesitates to spend the 20 bucks it takes to get in, her being so poor and broke. But The Burlesque Lounge -- that’s what it’s called, darlings -- is like something out of the dreams she must have had as an urchin on the streets of Weimar Berlin. I mean, Alan Cumming himself is right there, in eyeliner and »

He revived the Marvel title in 1975 with a new international team that included the now-classic characters Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler and Colossus.
The book featuring the previous line-up had been cancelled five years earlier because of poor sales. But the relaunch proved a massive success.
In an era of women's rights and space exploration, the weather-controlling Storm was the first black woman to play a major role in the comics while Jean Grey (then using the codename Marvel Girl) was transformed into the virtually omnipotent cosmic being called Phoenix, whose apotheosis and downfall was charted in the epic space opera known as the Dark Phoenix Saga.
Over the years, Claremont also co-created such mutants as Mystique, Gambit, Rogue, Psylocke, Shadowcat, Emma Frost and Sabretooth. Today, he is the writer of Marvel's X-Men Forever series.

Despite his success in bringing the comic book exploits of Marvel's merrry mutants, the X-Men, to the big screen in X-Men and X2: X-Men United, director Bryan Singer dropped the ball when it came to his adaptation of DC Comics' Superman in Superman Returns. Despite the movie receiving decent reviews and earning more than $120 million, Superman Returns was a disappointment to Warner Bros. (WB), who were expecting Batman Begins' numbers, and it was generally reviled by die-hard fans for the "Super-stalker" scenes and the inclusion of a Superman-Lois love child that never existed in the comic books. As a result, when WB decided to make another Superman movie, they abandoned Singer and his storyline in favor of rebooting the franchise with Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) at the helm of Superman: The Man of Steel. In a recent interview, Singer said that it "makes sense" to reboot the franchise and »

New images have surfaced for two hotly anticipated projects set to be released next year. Paul is a sci-fi road comedy helmed by Superbad director Greg Mottola and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead). Empire has released the pictures from the film, which centers on two British comic-book geeks who set out to travel across the U.S. and stumble upon an alien from Area 51. The star-studded cast includes Seth Rogen as the voice of Paul the alien, as well as Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristin Wiig, Jane Lynch, Bill Hader, Jeffery Tambor and Blythe Danner.
The Smurfs is, of course, the feature film based upon the pint-sized blue creatures from the comic and television series of the same name. Directed by Raja Gosnell (Scooby-Doo), the film stars Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays (Glee), and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and includes the voice talent of Katy Perry, »

Bryan Singer, the man who gave us “X-Men” and “X2″, and then later “Superman Returns” (a film that I seem to be the only one who liked), is now a producer on Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class”. He was supposed to direct, but, well, it didn’t work out. But Singer is still producing, and from all appearances, it’s not just some glorified title (ala Sam Raimi’s “producing” credits). Speaking to the Geek Files, Singer dismissed rumors of Wolverine showing up in “First Class” despite Internet rumors that had Hugh Jackman showing up on the film’s Georgia set earlier in the week: He’s not in the movie, he’s in the Wolverine movies. Fox themselves have confirmed that: X-Men hasn’t started shooting in Georgia yet and if Hugh was in Georgia, it wasn’t for this movie. Then again, studios have been known to lie. »
He went on to make X2, which has earned a leading place in the genre as well as among the X-Men films, and is now back with the franchise as a producer on the prequel X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn.
Among other topics, internet rumours about Hugh Jackman having a Wolverine cameo in the film were addressed. Jackman was reported to be in the vicinity of Jekyll Island, Georgia, USA, where part of First Class will be shot.

Following the casting of all of the vampire clans earlier this month, we hoped and prayed that the casting of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn was finally over. You'd think that by the fourth film most of the characters have been established, but apparently they need to specifically cast every individual in the town of Forks, Washington. Now they've added eight new names onto the pile. Summit Entertainment has issued a press release announcing that Olga Fonda (Love Hurts), Janelle Froehlich (Hacienda Heights), Masami Kosaka (The Runaways), Sebastiao Lemos (Brazilian TV series Força-Tarefa), Amadou Ly (The Tested, The Bridge), Ty Olsson (X2), Wendell Pierce (Ray), and Carolina Virguez (Spanish TV series Matalobos) have all joined the cast, though no character names are specified. Olsson is probably the most recognizable in the group, having played the security guard that Mystique drugs and Magneto kills in the second X-Men film. I'm »

Last month, Reynolds revealed the movie was going to be "a nasty piece of work", explaining: "The script is going to be a little harder than the comic. If you were going to assign a rating, the comic books are PG-13 and the script is right now walking a tightrope between that and an R-rating."
He added: "The fourth wall is broken many times in the movie - and it's important that we do so. I can't emphasise enough how closely the tone of the comic is being followed in the film script."
And it seems fans can judge that for themselves, as a Deadpool script - which appears to be genuine - has ended up floating around on the internet and becoming a hot topic on forums. »

With word that acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is set to direct the sequel to the atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it’s time to turn our attention over to analyzing what we can expect from the follow-up. Hugh Jackman, on site last night at Elton John’s Enduring Vision gala, gave Vulture the latest scoop on the project. “This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope,” he said, and then paused. “Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different.”
Jackman also doesn’t feel that the typically dark Aronofsky will clash with the comic book material stating, “”This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark. But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, »
