The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts on the leaked Deadpool test footage…
Perhaps the biggest surprise coming out of San Diego Comic-Con was the leaked test footage for the long-gestating Deadpool movie, directed by Tim Miller and featuring voice work by Ryan Reynolds. It was taken down, put back up, taken back down and then put up by Miller himself.
Watch the footage in glorious HD here.
So, what did you writing and editorial team think of the footage?
Oliver Davis: Bizarre. I like the idea of the super(aware)hero, but whenever I’ve picked up the books in the past, they’re too self-referential for me. Which is weird, because I love stuff like that usually. »

Back in 2004, before Dread Central was allowed to ejaculate its spunk upon the horror genre, Wesley Snipes was pretty vocal about not wanting to do another Blade movie after Blade: Trinity. Now that he's out of jail, his tune has changed... a lot.
"I’d be open to it," Snipes tells MTV regarding whether or not he'd return to the character. "We have some stones left unturned, and there’s some latitude for us to build on. I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things that I’ve learned to do now that I didn’t know how to do then. I think we’re better at making that kind of a film now."
Amazing what the passage of time and incarceration can do for a person! He truly has been rehabilitated.
File this one under "Just Talk" for now, kids!

The actor stated that he would be keen to return to the role of Marvel Comics' vampire slayer at San Diego Comic-Con.
"I'd be open to it," he told MTV. "I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.
"I think we're better at making that kind of a film now. Some of the things we did in the early parts of the franchise were experimental and now they've become customary in a lot of the Avengers films and other comic book adaptations. »
It’s been almost a decade since Blade: Trinity put a stake through heart of Welsey Snipe’s badass vampire killer, effectively halting future franchise installments, but that doesn’t mean Snipes is happy with leaving the role dead and buried. Blade was one of the first big comic book adaptations to kickstart the whole superhero genre, along with the massively successful X-Men films, and now that Snipes has cleared up most of his personal problems, it seems like a perfect time to start talking about a possible Blade 4.
Sure, Snipes is a modest 51 years old as of now, looking a little more aged than the comic book form of Blade, but he’s got a damn fine pitch that would please pretty much every horror fan if it were to become a reality. While talking to EW about the possibility of another Blade film, he revealed the following story »

Now that Blade is back at Marvel Studios, you’d have to assume that there’s absolutely zero chance of the franchise picking up where Blade: Trinity left off, but that has stopped Wesley Snipes from expressing his interest in playing the Daywalker one more time during an interview with MTV (via Cbm) at the San Diego Comic-Con.
“I’d be open to it. I think we’ve got some stones left unturned and there’s some latitude left for us to build on and I’d love to get back in the suit again and do some things I’ve learned how to do now that I didn’t know how to do then.

Wesley Snipes headed down to San Diego this weekend to promote his action-packed sequel The Expendables 3 at Comic-Con 2014. In two separate interviews, the actor addresses the possibility of reprising one of his most iconic roles, the vampire-killer Blade.
While it doesn't seem that any definitive plans are in place yet, the actor told MTV that he would be open to returning for Blade 4.
"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

Since then, Snipes has famously spent some time behind bars due to some issues with the IRS. He's finally back on the acting scene though, and "The Expendables 3" in a few weeks is set to herald his return to cinema.
Snipes joined the cast of that latter film at Comic Con this weekend and MTV News was there to ask him if he'd like to slip on the fangs to play Blade once again. The actor seemed enthusiastic about the idea:
"I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and »

Movie Trailers - Celebrity News After the extremely disappointing Blade: Trinity, the franchise pretty much died out (something which wasn't helped by star Wesley Snipes spending some time behind bars). Marvel Studios regained the rights a few years back as a result, but Snipes - who is part of The Expendables 3 cast - told MTV News at this weekend's Comic-Con that he would like to jump back into the role given the chance. "I'd be open to it. I think we've got some stones left unturned and there's some latitude left for us to build on and I'd love to get back in the suit again and do some things I've learned how to do now that I didn't know how to do then.

After over sixty years of ups and downs, Marvel was poised to begin building its film empire right at the start of the new millennium. Blade had released in 1999 and showed that a Marvel character could be successful on screen for the first time, and Marvel Studios was licensing its characters to production companies after their comic book successes in the 90s. At that point, no one knew what a huge success Marvel movies would be and few companies were willing to give a Marvel property the budget it needed to be done well. No one would have believed that in a little over a decade, Marvel would be at the forefront of Hollywood. Today we’ll look at the movies Marvel released from 2000 on and analyze what it took to build an empire.
Movies are changing, and Marvel is at the helm. Join us for part 2 of a four »

Who would you want to direct an action-packed journey around the human body? While I’m tempted to say David Cronenberg, the answer “James Cameron” is probably the more solid proposition and just as well, as his remake of 1966′s Fantastic Voyage has reportedly shifted a little further along the digestive tract with the news that David S. Goyer is on treatment duty.
The story concerns a team of scientists who are miniaturized onto a tiny submarine and despatched into the body of a defected Russian scientist to ensure his survival and obtain his secrets. Richard Fleischer’s original film featured the eclectic casting of Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC) and Donald Pleasence (Halloween) and had the distinction of being novelized by sci-fi master Isaac Asimov (I, Robot). An interesting parallel to Cameron, who hired respected author Orson Scott Card (Ender’S Game) to write up The Abyss back »

1998′s Blade movie was undoubtedly the trigger that instigated the current huge popularity being enjoyed by comic book movies as a genre – the pioneer of the modern comic book movie, so to speak. It was swiftly followed by fellow Marvel offerings X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) and the rest is history.
Such was Blade’s success, it spawned two sequels – 2002′s Blade II and 2004′s Blade: Trinity – and a 2006 television series (Blade: The Series) that was set in the same continuity as the movies, albeit starring a different actor (Wesley Snipes was replaced by Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones).
However, it has been ten years since the last movie and the television series did pretty badly performance wise (it was cancelled after one season because of poor ratings). Sticky Fingaz certainly won’t be asked to return and, at 51 years old, Wesley Snipes’ vampire hunting days are over. So how about a Blade reboot? »

Ryan Reynolds is the poster boy for film fan rage everywhere. For inexplicable reasons, he’s suffers much insult for his choices, whether he ends up in good movies or bad; he’s appeared as the scene-stealing Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, a gawky superhero in Green Lantern, and was even brave enough to let himself be buried alive in Buried, and has continued to receive unfounded negativity – even though he oozes a particular charm and self-knowing wit in almost every performance. He’s an actor willing to delve into the deep end, unafraid of backlash, and Marjane Satrapi’s The Voices sees him continue that tradition; but this has the potential to sway popular opinion on Mr. Reynolds, as he plays Jerry, a likeable sociopathic serial killer.

Andre Johnson Cuts Penis, Jumps From Building
Johnson leapt from the second story of an apartment building, according to police. Although he survived the fall, the rapper was seriously injured and rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center along with his recovered penis. Johnson is still being treated for his injuries, reported CNN.
It’s unknown what caused Johnson to commit the act of self-mutilation followed by the daring leap, though it’s believed the rapper was likely trying to commit suicide.
Johnson, who often performed with the Long Beach, Calif., hip-hop group Northstar, is likely best known for “When the Guns Come Out,” a track that was featured on the soundtrack for 2004 film Blade: Trinity. »
Pro wrestlers are both athletes and entertainers. Their job is to put on a believable performance inside of the ring, making fans fully immersed in the show. Getting into character night after night requires a certain level of talent and acting ability, which may lead some wrestlers to think they can handle a role on the big screen. For some wrestlers, they have the acting chops to carry a movie under their name, while others... well, they should stick to performing pile-drivers and body slams. Horror movies seem to be the start for most wrestlers, because horror's a genre where over-the-top acting can be accepted, and it’s a world not too far off from the WWE universe. In honor of Wrestlemania 30, and with the April 11th release of the WWE horror film Oculus, we take a look back at some famous wrestlers who made the career leap to horror movies. »

When it comes to superhero adaptations, you'll be hard pressed to find someone with more experience in the genre than David S. Goyer, whose credits include Blade, Blade II, Blade: Trinity, Blade: The Series, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman and the upcoming Constantine TV series. Oh, and there's also Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the 90s TV movie starring David Hasselhoff. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Goyer has discussed comic book movie fans, and whether he pays any attention to their expectations when it comes to bringing these characters to the screen...
"You’re dealing with an incredibly vocal but incredibly tiny sort of [group]. That’s a mistake that I think a lot of sometimes networks and movie studios make is sort of listening too much to [them]. I mean, it »

Lionsgate have officially signed on Man Of Steel and Batman Begins scribe David S. Goyer, to direct the upcoming adaptation of sci-fi thriller novel, The Breach. The first of a trilogy, which is followed by ‘Ghost Country’ and ‘Deep Sky’, The Breach follows Travis Chase, a man who has been released after 15 years in prison. During a hike he discovers a downed plane, but mysteriously all the passengers have been shot. The plane was also transporting a strange object which sees Travis thrust into the middle of a war for alien technology.
Like his Batman Begins cohorts, Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister, it seems as though sci-fi is the way to go. However, Goyer’s directing has left a lot to be desired. He’s given us the fun but daft Blade: Trinity, the needless remake of The Invisible, and the truly atrocious The Unborn.
Despite this, we should always »

Lionsgate recently picked up the rights to a new sci-fi thriller called The Breach, and Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel scribe David Goyer is attached to direct it. Goyer also directed the films Blade: Trinity and The Unborn, both of which were mediocre movies. Hopefully he does better with this one. The film is based on a book that he optioned last year, and since then he's been developing it independently.
The story centers "on a corrupt ex-cop who is trying to get his life back in order when he discovers a crashed plane in the Alaska wilderness. The first lady is among those dead in the wreckage. That sets off an adventure featuring a beautiful survivor, assassins, a secret organization, alien technology and an end-of-the-world scenario."
That sure sounds like it has the makings of an interesting, cool movie. Breach is the first in a trilogy of books. »

David S. Goyer, perhaps best known for penning The Dark Knight trilogy, will be directing a sci-fi thriller called The Breach for Lionsgate. Based on Patrick Lee’s 2009 novel, the script (penned by Justin Rhodes) will center on a corrupt ex-cop who discovers the wreckage of a plane crash in Alaska. From there, he’s thrust into an adventure that involves secret organizations and alien tech powerful enough to spell the end of the world in the wrong hands.
For more details, check out the full plot summary below:

It appears that the studio is hoping to turn this one into a franchise, »

Ryan Maloney charts Warner Bros.' efforts to bring The Flash to the screen...
In the pantheon of B-list superheroes, The Flash is perhaps the best and most revered. Sadly, that level of brand recognition doesn’t quite translate to the character’s number of fans; approach any random stranger on the street and he or she will say, “Yeah, I know the Flash! Runs really fast!” but ask them their feelings on Geoff Johns, or Barry vs. Wally, or the mysticism of the Speed Force, and you’re likely to get some pretty confused looks. And not just because you’re a creeper who approaches random strangers to talk about DC Comics characters.
Still, there exists a cornucopia of potential for The Flash to thrive in a live-action environment, making the recent addition of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) to the cast of CW’s Arrow, a darker re-imagining of the Green Arrow mythology, »
