Sony Planning More Spider-Man Spinoffs, Black Cat And Silver Sable To Feature

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony is going all in on Spider-Man, it seems. After announcing a Venom spinoff, which most fans can’t seem to get on board with, the studio has now revealed that they’ll also be producing a Black Cat and Silver Sable movie. Set to feature in a film of their own, the duo will headline a feature penned by Chris Yost, who also wrote Thor: The Dark World.

With a fall start date lined up, Sony will begin the search for a director soon. Matt Tolmach and Amy Pascal are on board to produce, but no word yet on who the studio is looking at to get behind the camera. A female filmmaker would be interesting and probably ideal, but who knows which direction Sony is looking to head in with the project. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long before things start coming together on this one. »

Exclusive: How Deadpool 2 Will Avoid “Sequelitis”

18 March 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

While Marvel Studios and Warners/Dceu were busy fighting over which of their superhero battle movies was better, the comic book movie that really had the biggest impact of 2016 was probably 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds, which went from an R-rated action-comedy that no one wanted to make to the global smash of a movie that grossed nearly $800 million worldwide.

A lot of that had to do with Ryan Reynolds' dedication to the character and his screenwriting collaborators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland), who continued to grind away at writing the best script possible for Marvel’s snarkiest superhero.

After Deadpool became such a hugely popular hit, putting Reynolds back in the spandex was a given, and in the past few months, we’ve started to hear what is planned for Deadpool 2 with John Wick’s David Leitch directing, Drew Goddard (The Martian) helping »

Surprise! A Venom Movie is coming in October 2018

17 March 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Hot of the press from Sony Pictures headquarters, and quite frankly completely unexpected, comes the news that finally, after being announced over a year ago, the Venom movie is set for an October 5th 2018 release date, filling the slot nicely that James Wan’s Aquaman has just vacated.

Rumours are currently flying as to who the director may be, and The Mummy and The Amazing Spider-Man director, Alex Kurtzman, looks to be in the lead especially after being announced by box office data providers Exhibitor Relations Co But this is yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Alex Kurtzman, writer of The Amazing Spider-man 2 and director of The Mummy reboot will be at the helm of Sony's Venom.

— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) March 16, 2017

The production of Venom has had a faltering start since 2014 when it was initially planned around the same time as the Amazing Spider-Man 2. »

Is Life Actually a Prequel to Spider-Man Spin-Off Venom?

16 March 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, an eagle-eyed Reddit user spotted something very interesting in a recent TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Life. One seemingly random throwaway shot, featuring a number of New York City citizens looking up at something in the sky, was seemingly lifted from a shot that was originally filmed for Sony's 2007 superhero sequel Spider-Man 3, during a scene where Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man saves Bryce Dallas Howard's Gwen Stacy from being crushed by a crumbling building. While it's likely just a case of the studio using a random shot from their library to save money, this shot has also spawned a crazy fan theory that Life may actually be a prequel to the long discussed Venom spin-off.

This theory first surfaced on Reddit, claiming that Life could actually be a backdoor origin story for how the alien symbiote Venom come to Earth in the first place. Venom is actually featured in Spider-Man 3, »

Why Have People Forgotten That Superhero Cinema’s Golden Age Was the Mid-Noughties?

16 March 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on the golden age of superhero cinema…

Wonder Woman will save the DC Extended Universe. This is a loaded statement, but at this point, it seems everyone will save the Dceu. We all need a hero, and my money is on Diana Prince. The latest trailer only strengthens my belief.

My belief that Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot will create a great superhero movie arises from three things: 1) They have to, as this movie cannot fail. Its failure will not only be catastrophic for the Dceu, but also for female directors and female-led superhero movies; 2) Wonder Woman is a great character and is different from anyone we’ve seen in either a DC or Marvel movie; 3) The critique that the trailers make the film look like a mid-noughties superhero movie isn’t a criticism, it is a blessing.

The mid-noughties was the golden age of superhero movies. Sure, »

'Kong' Challenges Wolverine for Weekend Box Office Supremacy

9 March 2017 11:32 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's King Kong versus Wolverine this weekend as Kong: Skull Island serves as the weekend's lone new wide release. Not only is Skull Island hoping to top the weekend box office as it could be looking at a neck-and-neck finish with last weekend's champ, but it hopes to join the ranks of recent hits such as Jordan Peele's low budget horror breakout Get Out and last weekend's $88.4 million debut of Logan, the fourth largest R-rated opening of all-time, as the box office has seen its share of star performers as of late. Debuting in 3,846 theaters, Warner Bros. and Legendary's Kong: Skull Island is the second feature in the planned universe of films following 2014's Godzilla. Expected to follow Skull Island is the release of Godzilla 2, slated for 2019, and a Godzilla vs. Kong monster mash-up in 2020. Of course, first things first. 2014's Godzilla opened with a massive $93.1 million and went »

‘Logan’ Review [Chinese Cut]

7 March 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook | Written by James Mangold, Scott Frank, Michael Green | Directed by James Mangold

Oh man, Logan. Everyone’s favourite Mutant is no longer the perma-young man he once was; his healing factor is greatly diminished, he walks with a limp, his hair has turned grey and he needs reading glasses. Eking out a living as a limo driver, Logan is alone, with only a profoundly sick Charles Xavier and Stephen Merchant’s Caliban for company. The Mutants, once feared as the next step in man’s evolution, are all but extinct.

This isn’t Mark Millar’s hyper-violent dystopia, but it is a hyper-violent dystopia. Or at least, it is for Mutants. The X-Men are dead and new Mutants are no longer being born, leaving Logan, Charles and Caliban as the last of their kind. Or are they? Logan »

Film Critics Pick the Best Superhero Movie Performance — IndieWire Critics Survey

6 March 2017 10:37 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Iconic, textured, and scarred beneath the surface, Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Logan puts the “human” in “superhuman.” In honor of his recent farewell as the man formerly known as Wolverine, we’ve asked our panel of critics to name the best performance in the history of superhero movies.

Charles Bramesco (@intothecrevasse), Freelance for Vox, Vulture, the Verge

My head tells me the correct answer is probably something like Heath Ledger’s swan song as “The Dark Knight”‘s rabid Joker or Michelle Pfeiffer as the kinked-up Catwoman in “Batman Returns.” But my heart’s in a cage — Nic Cage, to be specific. I recently revisited the »

The true story behind Dougray Scott playing Wolverine in X-Men and why Hugh Jackman took over

28 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at a time when Hugh Jackman was not Wolverine

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.

The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights. But when the company fell into financial troubles the rights went over to Carolco Pictures (First Blood) who began »

The Hollywood Reporter

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

Is Cinema Really Dead If Scorsese Says It Is?

22 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Henry Bevan on whether cinema is really dead…

The ‘cinema is dead’ narrative has gone around for a while. It is normally spouted by some blogger who wants to get across their “hot take”. But, sometimes, someone of note joins in, and as 2016 came to a close, a director trifecta chimed in — Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodóvar and Ridley Scott all criticised the state of cinema.

Scorsese complained the modern moving image has lost meaning and the epics of old are no longer produced. Almodóvar echoed Scorsese, adding movies are now too synthetic. Scott simply stated: “Cinema is mainly pretty bad.”

These are three of the late-20th-century’s greatest filmmakers, so their opinions matter. But, we can dissect their opinions and comments.

It’s hard to talk about modern cinema without talking about superheroes. They’re the blockbuster kings and their impact on the film industry is undeniable. Scott’s »

Rumour: Green Lantern Corps actor shortlist includes Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Ryan Reynolds?

20 January 2017 11:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that the wheels are finally turning behind the scenes for Warner Brothers’ upcoming Green Lantern Corps. film. Just last week, news broke that David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel) and Justin Rhodes would pen the script, and now we have a potential actor shortlist for Hal Jordan courtesy of The Wrap.

According to the new report, six names are on the list: Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Armie Hammer, Bradley Cooper, Joel McHale, and… Ryan Reynolds?

That’s right, TheWrap’s sources claim that Warner Bros. is still considering bringing Reynolds back to the role he made infamous in 2011’s critically panned Green Lantern, thanks to how “his superhero stock soared last year” when he starred in Deadpool. Considering he’s confirmed to play the Merc with the Mouth for the foreseeable future, and his own, very public complaints about playing Hal Jordan in the past, »

Tom Holland Makes One Bold Claim About His Spider-Man

20 January 2017 10:25 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Whenever a new actor is cast as an iconic character, there will naturally be comparisons of the new actor, and those who have come before. Fans engaged in heated debates over which Batman was better, Christian Bale or Ben Affleck, and which Joker delivered the definitive performance, Jared Leto, Heath Ledger, or Jack Nicholson. These comparisons started sprouting up again when Tom Holland was cast as Spider-Man, making his debut in last summer's Captain America: Civil War, leading into this summer's stand alone adventure Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland just threw some new fuel on this comparative fire, claiming that his Peter Parker could beat up those Peter Parker's who came before him, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

When Tom Holland made his debut as the web slinger in the Marvel blockbuster Captain America: Civil War, he became the third actor in the past 14 years to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man. »
