Warner and Team Downey are moving forward with Yucatan, an epic tale based on Steve McQueen’s detailed 1,700 page treatment that was envisioned as a star-vehicle for him in the 1960’s and have tapped Pirates of the Caribbean scribe, Terry Rossio, to update McQueen’s vision as a potential star vehicle for Robert Downey, Jr.
Deadline reports that Rossio will use McQueen’s treatment, which envisioned a renegade salvage’s expert search for Mayan treasure in the Yucatan Peninsula, as a starting point for an updated mind-bending adventure story. Additional details are being kept under wraps. Regarding the announcement, Downey said the following:
“To imbue a McQueen project with a sense of how he might have made it nowadays is a challenge and a thrill. Rossio is more than a great writer, he’s the perfect fit to embrace the existential nature of the project with the action, story and characters that drive Yucatan. »

Syfy’s space drama “The Expanse” has added cast members Chad Coleman (“The Walking Dead,” “The Wire”) and Jared Harris (“Mad Men”). They join Thomas Jane and Steven Strait in the galaxy-spanning story of a hardened detective (Jane) and rogue ship captain (Strait) who team up to find a missing girl, and find themselves in an interplanetary conspiracy.
Coleman will play Fred Johnson, a former Marine caught in a power struggle between Earth and Mars. Harris plays the “strangely terrifying” Anderson Dawes, who comes into conflict with Jane’s Detective Miller. Kristin Hager (“Being Human”) and Shawn Doyle (“Big Love”) joined Coleman and Harris in new cast announcements Thursday, with Hager playing strong-willed navigation officer Ade Nygaard and Doyle playing “consummate politician” Secretary Errinwright.

If you don't know who Adi Granov is, then you need to read the intro I wrote about him for an artist spotlight we did for him a year ago:
Adi Granov's design of Iron Man is what really put him at the top of my list for favorite comic book artist. Granov's style is dimensional, cinematic, and pure awesome. It's easy to see why Marvel chose him to do lots of early concept work for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Avengers movies.
Marvel has been releasing Star Wars comic books after Disney's purchase of Lucas Film. Marvel is using its roster of talented artists to create amazing covers for it's Star Wars comics. Adi Granov has created variant covers for Star Wars: Darth Vader #1 and #2.

This list could go on and on and on and on and...yeah, you get it. There is no shortage of extremely hot men in this world. And can we just say: Amen. But the only guy everyone's talking about right now is Thor stud Chris Hemsworth, who was just named People's Sexiest Man Alive! A title so prestigious it must be capitalized. And while some of the dudes below are probably honored within the pages of the sexy issue, we think they could have just as easily taken the title. And again, Amen For That. 1. Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man hot. 2. Idris Elba TV star hot. 3. Ryan Gosling New dad hot. 4. Chris Pratt Goofy superhero hot. 5. Benedict »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — Top cinematographers may have finally accepted that digital is the way forward but the look of films is still too often based on technological choices, not artistic ones.
So argue America’s top lensers, who made their case Monday — sometimes to cheers — at Poland’s Camerimage fest, arguably the world’s leading showcase for DPs.
Camera manufacturers have made incredible strides, DPs say, but too often concentrate on resolution gains rather than color depth, rich blacks and the imperfect, organic qualities that give film its emotional impact — such as grain.
Particularly troubling is the fast-eroding respect for »

Marvel is clearly kicking DC's ass when it come to their comic book movies, and I think they will continue to do so. DC is sure to make some great upcoming movies, but I don't think they will be as good as what Marvel is accomplishing. Marvel just has a better grasp on their stories and the universe they've created. This isn't the only thing Marvel is great at, though. They also show a respect for their fan base and they know how to treat them.
GeekTyrant.com was launched at the same time Jon Favreau's first Iron Man film was released, and my very first post was a review of that film. In a way, Marvel was the catalyst for what GeekTyrant would become. I think that’s all thanks to Favreau and his love for the fans. That guy knows what he’s doing when it comes fan interaction, »

Just a few weeks after Marvel unveiled its entire Phase Three schedule at a special press event in Hollywood, the studio has released the official Phase Three timeline poster that showcases the entire nine-movie slate and confirms that Ant-Man is now officially a part of Phase Two. Take a look at our breakdown of the nine movies below.
Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
Phase Three kicks off with Captain America: Civil War, which will surely alter the Marvel Cinematic Universe landscape in several ways, starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and new addition Chadwick Boseman as new addition Black Panther. Daniel Brühl has also joined the cast last week, reportedly playing one of the villains.
Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016
Marvel's big reveal at a special Hollywood event for media and fans a few weeks ago was the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 slate of movies, complete with logos and release dates. The reveal was made using a slide that populated with the movie names as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced them, and now that slide has finally been released as a clean image to replace the snapshots from a dark theater.
Here's how the Marvel phase 3 movie lineup shakes out. First up and not included on the slide is Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, arriving in theaters on July 17, 2015. Ant-Man wasn't included because the slide was designed to show films that had not yet been announced, and it was well into production during the event.
You may remember seeing glimpses of a full timeline of films for Marvel’s upcoming Phase 3 slate during the studio’s big unveiling presentation, but you’d be forgiven for forgetting seeing as how Marvel Studios dumped a lot of big news that day. Not to worry, because Marvel has now officially revealed the Phase 3 timeline image, which might come in handy when trying to keep track of all the superhero movies we have on tap. Ant-Man was originally supposed to kick off the next phase, but that film has now been moved under the Phase 2 banner as sort of a post-script after Avengers: Age of Ultron. The real Phase 3 festivities begin on May 6, 2016 with the release of Captain America: Civil War, which pits Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man against Chris Evans’ Captain America, with Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Daniel Bruhl’s unnamed villain also in the mix. »

As if Captain America: Civil War wasn’t looking awesome and action-packed enough, Marvel Studios have announced that “Rush” and “Inglourious Basterds” actor Daniel Brühl has been cast as a villain in the movie, with Marvel president Kevin Feige saying “With Daniel’s ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances, we knew we had found yet another great actor to share the screen with some of our biggest heroes.”
The specifics of the role are currently unknown, but what is know is it is that of a villain, with rumours circulating that he will be playing a secondary or minor villain in Civil War (with Crossbones as the main one) and will go on to be a more important villain in the Doctor Strange movie. How concrete that theory ends up being remains to be seen, but it’s intriguing regardless.
The movie will depict a conflict between the titular Captain America »

Since Joe and Anthony Russo took control of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for Marvel with aplomb, the directing duo have become hot favorites to take Joss Whedon’s place once the filmmaker steps down after next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. As such, this would put the Russo brothers in the director’s chair (or chairs) for the studio’s much-anticipated ensemble piece, Avengers: Infinity War.
That’s according to a report published by Deadline, who recently revealed that Rush‘s Daniel Bruhl has signed on to star in the pair’s upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Here’s what the outlet had to share on the matter.
“The Russo are building up their Marvel cred with this all-star outing, and I keep hearing they will step up to the ultimate Marvel all-star team and take the reins of The Avengers franchise from Joss Whedon, possibly with that »
- Michael Briers
Deadline recently reported that Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds) has been cast as one of the villains in "Captain America: Civil War," which will add Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man to the cast. The same article mentioned that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" directors Joe and Anthony Russo will return behind the camera. And that Marvel is so impressed with them, that there are already conversations about having them take over the "Avengers" franchise from Joss Whedon. It's unlikely that Whedon will be pushed out. It sounds like the helmer is considering moving away from Marvel and the company will need to find a replacement. Deadline says that this could happen with the next installments, "Avengers: Infinity War," which will consist of two movies shot back-to-back. »
Crossbones will reportedly be the main villain of Captain America: Civil War.
Beat by Marvel in that one, two things he will play villain but not main one, Crossbones still main
