14 comics from 2014 that should be movies

18 December 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.

It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.

We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:

14. Spread

The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting »

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' New Recruits Featurette

15 December 2014 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"Manners make us man!" Colin Firth states boldly as he gets ready to take a group of new recruits under his wing in the first featurette from Kingsman: The Secret Service. This latest sneak peek features plenty of never-before-seen footage from the action comedy, along with interviews from the cast and crew. Included is an epic bar fight, which finds Harry Hart showing his men what he's made of.

Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. This action adventure is based on the 2012 Icon Comics miniseries written by Mark Millar ("The Ultimates," "Kick-Ass") and featuring artwork by Dave Gibbons ("Watchmen"). The comic ran for 6 issues, and was subsequently collected&#160into a single volume.

Why I Think Man of Steel Is Great

22 November 2014 5:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Man of Steel has been polarized by a lot of critics and it has like a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes. Although it seems like most critics don't really like a lot of Zack Snyder's work. Like 300 which everyone would agree was amazing they gave it a 60%. Also, Watchmen which I really enjoyed they gave it a 64%, most people might not agree with me on that but I still really enjoyed Watchmen. With that said though I really liked Man of Steel a lot and it's the best Superman movie in opinion. I know a lot you will be like, "What about the first two Christopher Reeve Superman movies?", and yes they're great and classics, but let's face it they're extremely dated and they didn't have the technology back then to show everyone Superman can do on the big screen. If Man of Steel suffered from anything, it suffered from some of the most unfair, »

Matthew Vaughn Talks More About Why He Didn't Helm X-men: Days Of Future Past

20 November 2014 4:56 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

X-Men: First Class is viewed by many as the best X-Men movie to date despite some major changes to the source material. Michael Fassbender's performance, a version of the classic yellow and blue costumes, and the compelling story really help it stand out from past instalments, so the news that Matthew Vaughn wouldn't be back to helm X-Men: Days of Future Past was obviously met with a great deal of disappointment from moviegoers and fans alike. Of course, Bryan Singer would return and gave us an equally good outing for the X-Men, but why did Vaughn decide not to come back for the "inbetweenquel" by instead deciding to focus on Kingsman: The Secret Service?  "It started in a pub with Mark, and we were drunk," Vaughn revealed in an interview with IGN Movies, referring to The Secret Service's comic book writer, Mark Millar (who created the series alongside »

There Was a ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Cartoon and It’s Completely Crazy

17 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There is a Dumb and Dumber cartoon. It is insane and it demands your attention. This may come as a shock if you weren’t watching animation on ABC in the mid-1990s. It was never exactly well-regarded, or even regarded at all. It was canceled after its first season, which ran from October of 1995 through February of 1996. Harry and Lloyd only managed to gallivant through 13 episodes before they were evicted from the screen until 2003’s ill-begotten prequel and, of course, Dumb and Dumber To. The characters, created by the Farrelly Brothers, have had quite a bizarre franchise history. That said, the Farrelly Brothers were not directly involved with Dumb and Dumber the TV series. It was their co-writer on the original film, Bennett Yellin, who stepped in to write the television series. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera, their last project for ABC. This was an important moment for the storied animation studio, which »

Film Review: ‘Wolves’

15 November 2014 9:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arriving a bit late to exploit any residual “Twilight” fever, fantasy-action programmer “Wolves” will settle for evoking still-active TV skeins “True Blood” and “Teen Wolf,” with spare echoes from “Near Dark,” “The Lost Boys” and miscellaneous other youth-skewing horror films of the the recent decades. There are certainly no fresh ideas risked in this first directorial feature by voice actor-turned-scenarist David Hayter (“X-Men,” “Watchmen”), but “Wolves” could be worse, being as fast-paced and polished on a “B” budget as it is forgettable. Getting a low-profile U.S. release amid international rollouts that started in late August, it’s unlikely to raise much theatrical dust here but should prove profitable enough in the long run via home-format sales.

One day, floppy-banged Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) is just your average star-quarterback high-school senior; the next, after some preparatory nightmares, he’s suddenly transforming into a hairy beast who assaults his girlfriend (Kaitlyn Leeb »

Editorial: Dream Directors For The DC Movies

15 November 2014 7:43 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

October 2014 will forever live on in the memory of fans as one of the greatest months for Cbm news ever. A gradually escalating Cold War between Marvel and WB/DC has resulted in both studios unveiling their film slates, and I couldn’t be happier. Though I may be more of a Marvel guy in general, today I’m going to focus on DC’s upcoming projects, and who I’d like to see direct them. We already know the directors for a few of DC’s upcoming movies. Man of Steel and Watchmen director Zack Snyder will be helming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and both parts of Justice League, and Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer will be helming Suicide Squad. Beyond that however, we enter into the wild world of fan speculation, a world I’m going to dive into today. There are hundreds »

'Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice' Will Have IMAX Sequences, Plus Iconic Scene Rumored

14 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While some on our team were distracted by the changing aspect ratios of “Interstellar” in IMAX, the sheer quality and magnitude of the footage (not to mention the steep surcharge) means that filmmakers will continue to gravitate to the format. The latest IMAX convert? Zack Snyder. With rumors along those lines floating all over the web-o-nets the past day or two, Slashfilm has confirmed that large format cameras are being used on the comic book movie shoot. Just how extensive the IMAX scenes will be remains to be seen, but one iconic sequence in particular appears to have been shot as such. Warning: spoilers ahead. Some eagle-eyed fans in Chicago (via Collider) have spotted the crew of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” shooting what appears to be the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents. That’s right folks, the “Watchmen” director is following in the footsteps of his “Man Of Steel »

Film Review: Wolves

13 November 2014 8:35 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The new movie Wolves is the directorial debut of screenwriter David Hayter. He wrote the screenplay for the first X-Men movie and was one of the credited writers on X-2: X-Men United and Watchmen. That this is his first feature directing effort definitely shows, but I'll get to that later.

Lucas Till stars as Cayden Richards, a popular high school jock who is just a little off. One night his adoptive parents are killed, and he believes he is responsible, having just come to the realization that he is a werewolf. He goes on the run, and in a bar, he meets Wild Joe. Joe, a fellow lycanthrope, points him in the direction of the small town of Lupine Ridge, where he can find out more about himself and his birth family's history.

Running things in the town with an iron fist, or paw in this case, is Jason Momoa. »

Photos: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to Show Death of Bruce Wayne's Parents

13 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Last month, it was reported that the Orion Oaks Country Park in Michigan was converted into a cemetery where "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" set designers were spotted putting up a tomb with the name "Wayne" on it, suggesting that Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) will be stopping by to play his respects to his deceased parents. Today, we have new photos from the set, revealing that "Batman v Superman" will actually contain a scene showing Thomas and Martha Wayne being murdered as young Bruce Wayne helplessly watches. In the comics, Bruce was a fan of Zorro, which is why his parents took him to see "The Mask of Zorro." After the film, the Wayne family exits the theaters and are confronted by a petty thief, who ends up killing Bruce's parents. It has yet to be revealed who will play Thomas and Martha, but it's believed that the role »

Martha Thomases: Funny, You Don’t Look Booish

31 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Boo!

It’s Halloween today, when we laugh at death and taunt ghosts, witches and demons. Traditionally, we dress up in costume as something that scares us, exorcising our fears through make-up and disguise. If this was still a barometer of what we are afraid of, most women (and girls) are terrified of sex. And of nurses, police officers. And of sexy nurses and sexy police officers.

Which brings us to comics. Of course.

There have been a lot of scary comic books over the decades. Some were so scary that Congress felt the need to step in. Some scared me and didn’t scare you, and some scared you and didn’t scare me. That’s why there is room in the comments.

Alan Moore has written the most comics that scared me the most. From all the bugs to vampires that figure out how to be out in »

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on. »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: Batman vs. Superman vs. Captain America vs. Iron Man

Two weeks ago, in the span of about 24 hours, the universe of superhero movies rapidly expanded in a series of bizarre new directions. First came news that Marvel was actively considering making the next Captain America movie into the next Iron Man movie, in a story arc that would cull material from the mid-2000s mega-crossover "Civil War." Coincidentally or probably not, Warner Bros. chose that precise cultural moment to announce that they were planning a whole bunch of DC superhero movies. Wonder Woman? Aquaman? Cyborg? Check, check, checkeroo! Several readers wrote in with their own thoughts on the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. »
