Watchmen's long journey from page to screen

17 April 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Mark Harrison 22 Apr 2014 - 06:46

Alan Moore always said his graphic novel was unfilmable, and for a while, that almost looked true. Mark looks at attempts to adapt Watchmen

It's now been just over five years since Zack Snyder brought Watchmen, the acclaimed comic series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, to the big screen. Whatever you think of the final film, you could hardly say that the source material was easy to adapt.

Moore's thought-provoking script and Gibbons' detailed artwork came together to make one of the most acclaimed comic series ever created- frequently referred to as comics' answer to The Godfather. Some argue that the comic book movie genre got its Godfather with The Dark Knight in 2008, but studios were trying to adapt Watchmen long before that.

In fact, Hollywood's flirtations with the material date all the way back to the period when Tim Burton's Batman became a huge hit, »

Rumor Patrol: Who is Holly Hunter’s ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Character?

8 April 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

There have been so many unsubstantiated rumors pertaining to Batman vs. Superman at this point that it’s almost depressing – especially when you consider that the film was delayed a year to May 2016. How many more of these things will we have to endure over the next two years?

The latest rumor has to do with the recent casting of Holly Hunter (The Incredibles) in a yet-to-be-revealed role. According to a new report, she’s been cast as Leslie Thompkins, a doctor and friend of the Wayne family who (in the comics) served as a pseudo-surrogate mother to Bruce after his parents’ untimely deaths.

This latest rumor ...

6 April 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round up of all the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, Chronicle 2, Batman vs. Superman, Arrow, Gotham, Son of Batman, Batman: Strange Days, The Incredibles 2, Lucy and more...

We'll jump straight this week with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened in the States yesterday and is currently tracking a domestic opening in the region of $93 million, which would put it above Marvel Studios' last release, Thor: The Dark World and overtake the $86.2 million debut of Fast Five to set a new April record. This comes after a solid $75 million international opening weekend (including a £6 million, first-placed opening here in the UK), meaning that Marvel has yet another smash hit on its hands with its third Phase Two offering. »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (April 5)

5 April 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Welcome, everyone, to another edition of the WhatCulture news brief. We have lots of good stuff to share with you this week, as studios kept us busy with casting updates, bizarre voice actor changes, and updates about Star Wars, Halo, and Quentin Tarantino.

But before we jump in, let’s take a quick gander at some honourable mentions that caught my eye:

Honourable Mentions

Frozen Is Now The Highest Animated Film Of All Time. I guess people just can’t… let it go. (Sorry I couldn’t resist)

Jason Bateman Will Narrate An Upcoming Lego Documentary. Why on Earth they didn’t hire Morgan Freeman to do it will always baffle me. He’s a Master Builder for crying out loud!

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Renewed For 2 More Seasons. Fans of the weirdest sitcom on TV rejoice! Charlie, Frank, Mac, Dennis, and Dee will be making us uncomfortable for a couple more years. »

Batman Vs Superman Adds 3 Butt-Kicking Actors

4 April 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Three new actors have just been added to the highly anticipated Batman vs. Superman adventure that will be landing in theaters in 2016, and all three of them have had experience somehow in the superhero/comic book world.

Holly Hunter is a face you might not be familiar with, but her voice will be instantly recognizable as Elastigirl's from Disney and Pixar's The Incredibles.

Callan Mulvey is in theaters right now, kicking butt with the best of 'em in 300: Rise of an Empire.

Meanwhile, we got to see what Tao Okamoto was made of last year in The Wolverine, she played Mariko, Logan's ally in Japan.

While we're still in the dark about what roles these actors will be taking on, it's great to know that Batman vs Superman is moving along nicely, and we cannot wait to check it out in theaters on May 6, 2016! »

Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, & Holly Hunter Join the Cast of Batman vs. Superman

3 April 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With filming for Zack Snyder's follow-up to Man of Steel set to being very soon, casting for the movie has obviously been stepped up.  Just now, Warner Bros. issued a press release announcing that three new actors have been cast in the movie for various roles.  Come inside to check out all the details!  

If you're hoping for information on who they'll be playing...you may be a little disappointed.  All the press release really says is that they were cast for characters created specifically for the film.  Meaning they don't already have a comic book counterpart.  Either way, it's really nice to hear some sort of official information on this film, considering how quiet things have been lately on the upcoming DC Superhero flick:

Batman vs. Superman Adds Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey And Tao Okamoto

3 April 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has added three new cast members to Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman today and they come in the form of Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter. According to the report, the actors will play new characters that have not been announced as of yet.

Hunter, of course, is an Academy Award winning actress who has dabbled with the superhero genre before in The Incredibles. Okamoto is a relatively new talent whose only credit to date was last year’s The Wolverine. As for Mulvey, he recently appeared in 300: Rise of An Empire (a Warner Bros. film produced by Snyder), so his involvement here does make a bit of sense. Obviously both Snyder and the studio enjoyed working with him on Noam Murro’s recent sequel.

Though Deadline states that the trio will be playing new characters, I’m a bit skeptical. Perhaps that’s true, »

Samuel L. Jackson says Frozone will return for The Incredibles 2

1 April 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month, Disney CEO Bob Iger delighted fans of Pixar's 2004 animated classic The Incredibles by announcing that the superhero family would return under director Brad Bird for the long-awaited sequel, and now Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed that we should expect to see his character Frozone back alongside Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and their super-powered offspring in The Incredibles 2.

"Every time I run into Brad [Bird] he always tells me Frozone is going to be part of whatever's going on, so I have to believe that," said Jackson in an interview with Digital Spy. "I guess they would be the Incredibles without Frozone but I think Frozone would be a wonderful, wonderful addition to what's already there. I'm just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into."

Jackson can currently be seen in another superhero offering, having reprised the role of Nick Fury for Marvel's latest, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. »

Samuel L. Jackson Hints At ‘The Incredibles 2′ Return

1 April 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles is one of animations all-time greats. Raking in an incredible (sorry!) $631,442,092 at the box office, the recent news that a sequel was in the works was music to the ears of eager fans. Original voice star Samuel L. Jackson, who lent his vocal chords to the character of Frozone, has also stepped forward to say that he can’t wait either!

In a recent interview, Jackson has stated that he keeps in contact with The Incredibles director Brad Bird (now sequel script writer), and that Bird is planning on having Frozone return:

“Every time I run into Brad he always tells me Frozone is part of what’s going on, so I have to believe that. Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what’s already there…I’m just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into.”

Samuel L. Jackson Talks About The Incredibles 2

1 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Earlier this month is was announced that director Brad Bird is developing a sequel to his awesome animated film The Incredibles for Pixar. This is something I've wanted to happen since I saw the movie for the first time in theaters. At the time I thought it had amazing potential to be a successful franchise. It's great to see the studio is finally moving forward with a sequel. 

In an interview with Digital Spy, Samuel L. Jackson, who provided the voice of Frozone in the first film, talked about the sequel, and he believes that he will be back!

"Every time I run into Brad (Bird) he always tells me Frozone is going to be part of whatever's going on, so I have to believe that. I guess they would be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful, wonderful addition to what's already there. I'm »

Samuel L. Jackson Says Frozone Will Return For The Incredibles 2

31 March 2014 9:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite our misgivings about Pixar moving farther into sequel territory rather than focusing on new and original ideas, we couldn’t help but get excited about the news that the animation studio is finally making a follow up to The Incredibles. Fans have been hoping (read: begging) for a sequel since the first film hit theaters in 2005, and director Brad Bird has always expressed interest in making one, as long as a great idea struck him.

Luckily for us, that idea must have struck because the film is now in active development. We still don’t know how far along that development may be, or when we can expect to see the finished product, but it’s exciting news nonetheless. We do know that Bird is currently working on the script, and though he’s not confirmed to direct, chances are good that he’ll be back. He’s currently »

Samuel L. Jackson Says Frozone Will Be Back For The Incredibles 2

31 March 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to his important role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Samuel L. Jackson has spent plenty of time hanging around superheroes in the last few years - but what we've been really waiting for is the return of his own great superhero character. Back in 2004, Jackson lent his recognizable voice to Lucius Best a.k.a. Frozone in Pixar's The Incredibles, and while he was only used in a small supporting role, he still provided some of the movie's best moments. So when the Incredibles sequel was announced earlier this month we all hoped that it would mean the return of the ice-blasting costumed hero, and now Jackson has confirmed that our wishes will come true. Jackson is currently making the global press rounds promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier - in which he is playing S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury for the fourth time - »

Samuel L. Jackson Thinks Frozone Will Return

31 March 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There was much cause for celebration earlier this month when Disney-Pixar announced that the Emeryville team, led by writer-director Brad Bird, were developing a long-demanded sequel to superhero adventure The Incredibles. Among the favourite characters to pop up in the movie is fellow “Super” Frozone, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, who believes he’ll be back for the sequel.Out and about on the Captain America: The Winter Soldier press tour, Jackson was asked about the likelihood that the freeze-capable hero (real name Lucius Best) would show up for another adventure."Every time I run into Brad, he always tells me Frozone is part of what's going on, so I have to believe that," he tells Digital Spy. "I guess they could be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what's already there."We certainly agree – not only did Frozone help save the day in the end, »

Samuel L. Jackson Says to Expect Frozone to Return in 'Incredibles 2'

31 March 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just after news surfaced that The Incredibles would get a 3D re-release sometime down the road, Disney and Pixar Animation revealed that The Incredibles 2 was officially in development after fans have been clamoring for a sequel for 10 years now. And while the animated sequel is surely a few years away, that doesn't mean director Brad Bird, who is already developing the script, doesn't know what's in store for our family of heroes. In fact, one of their superhero friends will return with Samuel L. Jackson recently speaking with Digital Spy and revealing that Bird has already said that Frozone will definitely be involved. While promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier (in theaters this week), Jackson revealed: "Every time I run into Brad [Bird, director] he always tells me Frozone is part of what's going on, so I have to believe that.

Samuel L. Jackson Teases Frozone Return in The Incredibles 2

31 March 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s been ten long years since the release of The Incredibles, but it was revealed earlier this month that Disney and Pixar are finally moving ahead with a sequel to the fan favourite animated feature.

Since then, those same fans have of course been endlessly speculating over the plot and characters of the movie, but as it’s still seemingly very much in the early stages of development (especially with director Brad Bird busy working on Tomorrowland), we likely have a while to wait until we hear more.

However, in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s Samuel L. Jackson revealed that he’s likely to return for the sequel, telling the site:

The Incredibles 2 turned out to be a big announcement from Disney, with fans of all ages excited for the return of the superhero Parr family.

Jackson has teased the return of Frozone.

According to Sam, Brad Bird has every intention of bringing Frozone back to the big screen, though its not yet known in what capacity.

""Every time I run into Brad [Bird, director] he always tells me Frozone is part of what's going on, so I have to believe that. I guess they could be the The Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what's already there."
