Lewis is gearing up for production.The Mark Gordon Company, TriStar Pictures and eOne are setting up the film and have secured a director already in the form of Joe Johnston, the filmmakers behind such classic adventures as The Rocketeer, Jumanji and Captain America: The First Avenger. The new film, which will adapt The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, is the fourth in the film series but will act as a reboot for the series.

The Silver Chair is set decades after “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” and sees “Eustace Scrubb and his friend Jill Pole are brought to Narnia by Aslan to find the missing heir of a now elderly King Caspian. The missing Prince Rilian disappeared while on a quest »

Joe Johnston to direct The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems The Chronicles of Narnia fans will soon be heading back through the wardrobe. Variety has revealed that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston is set to direct a revival of the Narnia film franchise with The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.

Life of Pi‘s screenwriter David Magee has adapted the script with TriStar Pictures, the Mark Gordon Company, the C.S. Lewis Company and Entertainment One partnering on the project and Mark Gordon, Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber and Melvin Adams producing the film.

The fourth book published in the Narnia franchise, The Silver Chair is about the Pevensie’s cousin Eustace Scrubb, who is called to Narnia by Aslan to save Prince Rilian, the kidnapped child of Prince Caspian.

“Joe is a wonderful storyteller who is equally at home in the biggest franchises and the most intimate character pieces,” Gordon said of Johnston’s hiring. »

Captain America Director Joe Johnston To Helm Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If The Chronicles of Narnia doesn’t exactly ring a bell, we don’t blame you. Though C.S. Lewis’ novels were hugely popular back when they were published – which was in the 1950s – the feature film adaptations haven’t exactly had the same luck. 2005-2010 saw three movies based on the fantasy world hit theatres in the form of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. While none of them were particularly bad, the quality, and box office returns, certainly dipped as the franchise went on and the plug was eventually pulled after the third outing.

That was seven years ago, but now, there seems to be some renewed interest in the series, as Sony is looking to bring Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair to the big screen, and they’ve hired Captain America: The First Avenger helmer Joe Johnston »

Newswire: Captain America director Joe Johnston is headed to Narnia

10 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Stretching his “dangerous fantasy world contained inside a magical wooden box” muscles yet again, Jumanji director Joe Johnston has signed on for TriStar’s upcoming Narnia movie, The Silver Chair. Johnston—whose credits also include Jurassic Park III, The Rocketeer, and Captain America: The First Avenger—will be the first director to helm a film in this latest attempt to bring C.S. Lewis’ beloved religious allegories to the screen, picking up where Walden Media’s lavish Chronicles Of Narnia films left off.

The Silver Chair sees the unfortunately named Eustace Scrubb—last seen looking like Will Poulter in Walden’s Voyage Of The Dawn Treader—return to the fantasy kingdom with his friend Jill, in search of Narnia’s missing prince. Variety reports that Life Of Pi screenwriter David Magee will adapt Lewis’ timeless prose for the screen.

‘Captain America’ Director Joe Johnston Boards ‘Narnia’ Revival ‘The Silver Chair’ (Exclusive)

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Captain America: The First Avenger” helmer Joe Johnston will journey to “Narnia: The Silver Chair,” a revival of C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” series.

TriStar Pictures will partner with the Mark Gordon Company, the C.S. Lewis Company, and Entertainment One on the project with Mark Gordon, Lewis’ stepson Douglas Gresham, Vincent Sieber, and Melvin Adams producing the pic. “Life of Pi” scribe David Magee adapted the script.

“Joe is a wonderful storyteller who is equally at home in the biggest franchises and the most intimate character pieces,” Gordon said. “Because C.S. Lewis’ story is iconic and epic, but also tender, personal, and emotional, he’s the perfect choice to bring ‘The Silver Chair’ to the screen.”

25 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As we already know, the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be receiving a few costume upgrades for Spider-Man: Homecoming, as Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark kits out the wall-crawler with all manner of gadgetry.

Some of these tech upgrades were showcased in a video back in January, and now The Los Angeles Times has posted a breakdown of the enhancements to the web-slingers classic costume, which include:

Upgraded Web Shooter

Enhanced web shooters with multi-settings, a variety of webbing and a laser targeting system.

Explosive Web Snares

Chris Pratt Believes An Excess Of Characters Brought About Suicide Squad’s Downfall

25 April 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe began life with the release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man in 2008, kicking off a phase of superhero standalone pics – namely Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger – that culminated with the launch of The Avengers four years later.

Warner Bros. and DC’s method of approach has proven to be slightly more sporadic in the sense that Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad and the upcoming Justice League will spawn solo movies of their own – think of The Batman and Gotham City Sirens – as opposed to the other way around. That’s not to say that one model is necessarily more successful than the other, only that DC and Marvel’s films tend to invoke different permutations as their respective cinematic universes continue to diversify and evolve.

Thanks to the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy and the aforementioned Suicide Squad, Marvel and Warner Bros. have »

New Wonder Woman Concept Art Focuses On Diana Prince’s World War I Adventure

21 April 2017 5:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This June, Wonder Woman will delve into the origins of Diana Prince as we finally learn more about the iconic superhero who had her big screen debut in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be seen again later this year in Justice League. We’ve already gotten a lot from film – some would say too much, in fact – but today, a new piece of concept art has been released and it depicts the character’s World War I exploits.

Apparently, the scene you’ll see below comes roughly halfway into Wonder Woman, as Diana steps out into the no-man’s-land between the English and German trenches. Asked about why the character takes it upon herself to intervene in the war, star Gal Gadot said the following:

“It’s a very powerful moment. We have a character committing to her true self, doing what she believes needs to be done. »

Logan Marshall-Green’s Spider-Man: Homecoming villain role revealed

19 April 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a few months away from the release of Sony and Marvel’s Spidey reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, and thanks McU Exchange we now have some details on another comic book villain set to do battle with Tom Holland’s webslinger in the hotly-anticipated movie.

We already know that Peter Parker will be going up against The Vulture (Michael Keaton), Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) and The Tinkerer (Michael Chernus), and the site is reporting that Logan Marshall-Green is portraying another bad guy in Jackson “Montana” Brice.

In the comic books, Brice is a member of The Enforcers, a team of villains who made their first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #10 way back in 1964. Brice also took on the alter-ego of Shocker in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series after being supplied tech by The Tinkerer, so it’s possible that Bokeem Woodbine’s Herman Schultz won’t be the only Shocker we see in the film. »

Chris Pratt says Jurassic World 2 is scarier, darker, and unexpected

19 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As all corners of the universe gear up for the highly anticipated next entry in the McU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Chris Pratt has been doing media rounds to promote the blockbuster and has naturally found himself fielding questions on the other mega-popular franchise he is part of, and specifically the upcoming sequel Jurassic World 2.

“[J.A. Bayona is a] remarkable filmmaker,” he told ScreenRant. “If you haven’t seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he’s really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense. I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.”

How Spider-Man: Homecoming Fits Into The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

17 April 2017 12:06 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The chronology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as a whole has been pretty straightforward. By and large, they tend to take place one after another in the same order as they were release. Of course, there are some exceptions. Captain America: The First Avenger was obviously a period piece, taking place decades prior to the rest of the Avengers’ origin stories (though it picked up right before The Avengers and after Thor, which puts it cleanly where one would expect in the timeline).  

Other than that one, perhaps the only questionable film is Doctor Strange, which sometimes seems to take place around The Avengers, and sometimes feels like it starts off around the time of Captain America: Civil War, which brings into question how long everything took to happen in the film itself. That’s neither here nor there, but the point is that for the most part, the »

The SuperManual: Colonel Chester Phillips

13 April 2017 6:53 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Who he is: Chester Phillips

His power: No powers, just an old-fashioned military man.

His story: Colonel Chester Phillips is first introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger as the man in charge of training the candidates for the super-soldier program, scornful at first of Steve Rogers’ presence, but slowly accepts his potential. After Rogers is put through the treatment and the serum’s creator, Dr. Abraham Erskine, is killed by a Hydra agent, Phillips returns to the front, having assumed Captain America would perform as a kind of show pony to raise funds for the war. However, after Captain America deserts his post and singlehandedly rescues an entire unit of men from Nazi control, Phillips finally respects him—even doling out a salute, which as everyone knows is very rare for grizzled old military guys who don’t take any guff. He then aids Captain America again in the »

The SuperManual: Abraham Erskine

13 April 2017 6:53 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Who he is: Dr. Abraham Erskine

His power: No superpowers, just the irascible charm that comes from being played by Stanley Tucci.

His story: Abraham Erskine worked as a scientist in Germany, where his research on developing a super-soldier serum attracted the attention of the Nazis during their rise to power. Erskine resisted finishing his formula for the country’s new leaders, but Johann Schmidt forced him to finish a version of the serum, and tested it on himself (causing his transformation into the Red Skull). Erskine fled Germany—with the help of Peggy Carter—and joined the Strategic Scientific Reserve in the U.S., where he is working at the start of Captain America: The First Avenger. He discovered Steve Rogers at an enlistment station and recruited him for the super-soldier program. Though Rogers’ transformation was a success, a Hydra agent killed Erskine, leaving Captain America the sole recipient »

The SuperManual: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

13 April 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Release Date: May 4, 2018

The story: The Infinity War’s been a long time coming, starting with the introduction of the first Infinity Stone (the Tesseract in Captain America: The First Avenger). But that conflict might not span two installments anymore—the Russo brothers, who are directing again, have said that the third and fourth Avengers films will be very different from each other. But what we’ve gleaned so far about the plot is that Thanos, who was seen slipping on the Infinity gauntlet in a post-Age Of Ultron credits scene, is probably going to get off his duff to get the rest of the Stones. The directors have also suggested that everyone will still be dealing with the fallout of Civil War.

Who appears (confirmed, but still well short of the rumored 68 characters):

Tony Stark/Iron Man

Steve Rogers/Captain America

Thor

Nick Fury

Wanda ...
