Could Replacements Actors Keep the Avengers Franchise Going After the Original Cast Leaves?

7 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »


While Marvel’s comic book adaptations are a hot commodity just now, the cast of Marvel/Disney’s Avengers franchise are running out of movies on their contracts and have dropped hints that they are not going to play their respective hero characters beyond their current commitments.  Will Marvel and Disney let the franchises die after the cast leaves or will a new cast take over?


Movie studios don’t like to let go of a good thing. They like to find ways to keep a lucrative franchise going, even without the original cast. For instance, when the younger cast of X-Men: First Class replaced the stars of the original trilogy; or when the Star Trek: Next Generation cast took over the Star Trek Franchise from the classic Trek crew. Since Marvel/Disney’s the Avengers was a colossal hit and the sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected »

13 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Stan Lee, co-creator of hundreds of Marvel Comics characters including "Spider-Man", "Iron Man", "Thor", "Ant-Man", "Daredevil", "The Fantastic Four", "Dr. Strange" and "The Incredible Hulk",  said that of all the characters in the Marvel Comics Universe, the one most deserving of a live-action big screen treatment is "Black Panther":

"Black Panther" created by Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, debuted in Marvel Comics' "Fantastic Four" #52 (July 1966), as the first black superhero in mainstream American comic books. 

The "Marvel Knights Animation: Black Panther" DVD release,   based on the variant Marvel Comics series by writer Reginald Hudlin and illustrator John Romita Jr., stars Djimon Hounsou as 'Black Panther', Jill Scott as 'Storm', Kerry Washington as 'Princess Shuri', Alfre Woodard as 'Dondi Reese'/'Queen Mother' and Carl Lumbly as 'Uncle S'Yan' :

Triple Golden Globe nominee Thomas Jane has been cast in the upcoming television adaptation of the Leviathan Wakes book series by James S.A. Corey. Syfy has ordered The Expanse straight to a 10 episode series, adding it to a list of new ventures for the cable network, which also includes 12 Monkeys, Dominion, Olympus, Ascension and Z Nation.

With Jane in the role of Miller – a detective working for a corporate security force in the Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter – the story takes place 200 years in the future, when Miller takes on the case of a missing heiress. During the course of his investigation, he crosses paths with a rogue ship’s captain, and the pair find themselves on the trail of a far bigger, more dangerous conspiracy, that threatens to cause galactic conflict.

MTV Officially Picks Up Shannara TV Series

11 July 2014 10:40 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

MTV is looking to get into the Game of Thrones business. The Wrap reports thatthe network has made a full-season commitment to a live-action television show based on Terry Brooks' Shannara fantasy series. Back in December, it was reported that Iron Man director Jon Favreau would direct however, that appears to not be the case as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles helmer, Jonathan Liebesman will direct the first two episodes. Favreau is still working on the project as an executive producer so it's not out of the realm of possibility that he'll direct one of the other episodes. The first season has received a 10 episode commitment. The series is a very traditional sword and sorcery, fantasy series - with an added twist that the novels are set in a post-apocalyptic, medieval setting of a far-flung future where the Earth has been radically altered due to Chemical Warfare. In this setting, »

11 July 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Thomas Jane has scored the starring role in Syfy's "The Expanse," a TV series adaptation of James S.A. Corey's space-set "Leviathan Wakes" novels.

Set two centuries in the future when much of our solar system has been colonised, Jane plays a hardened detective from the Asteroid Belt who works for a corporate security force.

He teams with a rogue ship's captain to find the truth about a missing heiress and its ties to the greatest conspiracy in human history. The project has a ten-episode straight-to-series commitment and will likely premiere sometime next year.

"Children of Men" and "Iron Man" scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby are set to serve as show runners alongside Naren Shankar ("CSI").

Dumbo to Fly Again

11 July 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Big ears are about to be a big deal. Disney's animated classic Dumbo is being remade into a live-action film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Mouse House thinks special effects have finally evolved to the point where a flying elephant could be made to look real and be believable. The studio is planning to make an adjustment: as it tells the baby elephant's story, it will tell a story about a human going through a similar experience. Ehren Kruger, the writer of Transformers: Age of Extinction, will write and produce. 

Disney's been on a tear of ordering live-action remakes of their animated classics. Cinderella from Thor director Kenneth Branaugh hits in March 13, 2015, while Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau is working on The Jungle Book and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon is taking on Beauty and the Beast.  »

Shannara TV show is Go with Jonathan Liebesman and John Favreau at the helm

11 July 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Terry Brooks' beloved Shannara series has been on the table for adaptation for years now, but MTV have picked up the gauntlet, green-lighting a 10 episode first season. I can only assume the decision to finally invest in the sprawling post-apocalyptic/Fantasy series is due to the popularity of HBO's Game of Thones, but who cares, I honestly never thought we'd see this day.

Shannara is unique to epic fantasy in that it's still earth as we know it, but the world is a post-nuclear future version of Earth where humans have mutated into elves and dwarves and the land mass of the planet is all swapped around.

Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: La, Wrath of the Titans, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) has been tapped to direct the first two episodes while Iron Man's John Favreau will produce.

Inside Robert Downey Jr.'s Fight to Help His Son Indio After Drug Arrest

11 July 2014 | | See recent news »

Robert Downey Jr. has been down this path before. The Iron Man star, 49, who battled drug addiction for years before getting sober in 2002, has rallied to help his son Indio, 20, who was arrested for cocaine possession on June 29. A family source says Indio, a musician, has struggled with substance-abuse issues in recent years. He voluntarily checked himself into rehab after the arrest. "Robert clearly understands the struggle, and while of course this relapse was very upsetting to him, he is very proud of his son," the source tells People in this week's issue.

Hungry for success: Six reasons graduates need to watch and learn from Chef...

10 July 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

With a personality as flavourful as his career, Jon Favreau has been a firm favourite for as long as I can remember. The 47 year old actor-turned-director was the saving grace of Couples Retreat; added light relief whilst leveling the overall tone in the Iron Man series (which he both acted in and produced); and has harked back to his indie roots in his latest release, Chef.

So, when Shadowlocked was offered time with the iconic actor/director/producer, you’d of been hard pushed to find someone with more of a genuine passion for an interview. Unfortunately though, the PR in question didn’t agree.

Perhaps there were hungrier, more delicious invites for Mr. Favreau, or maybe it was decided that our entree sized application wasn’t worthy of the films mighty appetite. Whatever the case we missed out...and to this day I’m upset.

Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe hired to write live-action Dumbo movie

9 July 2014 2:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having written the scripts for one of the biggest money making franchises in cinemas at the moment, Transformers: Age of Extinction scribe Ehren Kruger has been hired by Disney to pen a live-action adaptation of the classic 1941 animated Dumbo.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kruger will write the script and serve as a producer alongside Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy). No release date has been set, but one would assume it would be part of Disney’s 2016 tentpole line-up. This new version will apparently take the original tale and add a “unique family story that parallels Dumbo’s story”. The studio believes that the latest CGI technology means we can see a live-action flying elephant.

Dumbo will join an ever-growing list of live-action Disney adaptations. This year’s Maleficent starring Angela Jolie, a re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, grossed over $630 million and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland took over $1 billion at the global box office, »
