Chinese Twitter account teases Warcraft sequel

11 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Warcraft failed miserably at the U.S. box office, grossing just $24 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic has performed rather well in China, helping to propel the film to a solid $430 million worldwide and making it the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.

Universal and Legendary had franchise hopes for the movie (hence the Warcraft: The Beginning title in some markets), and it seems that the international box office may just help that to become a reality.

On the official Chinese Twitter account, a message has been posted which reads: “Warcraft’s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again.”

Emily S. Whitten: Awesome Con Round-Up & A Look Ahead

10 July 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Con season has well and truly slid into gear now; with Awesome Con kicking things off a few weeks ago and Sdcc and NerdHQ fast approaching. Of course, con season is really year-round these days; but for me, it starts with Awesome Con and ends with New York Comic Con.

This year’s Awesome Con was, as usual, a great start to the season for me. What I like about the con is that despite only being four years old, it’s managed to integrate various fun aspects of different flavors of cons into a fairly seamless whole – meaning that if you aren’t there for one particular facet of the offerings, there are plenty of others to experience. Here were some of the highlights for me:

Awesome Con has consistently done well in getting big names to a young con. This year’s lineup included everyone »

When Sony and Marvel Studios first announced their joint custody of the Spider-man character, many believed it would just be a one-and-done project, with Sony grabbing the web-slinger back as soon as his good name was McU-rebooted.

But things changed.

Sony have now revealed they are looking to develop an entire Spider-Verse within the McU under Marvel’s creative guidance. This could signal the next phase in expanded universe continuities, ushering in the next phase of comic book storytelling…

Marvel to Unveil Giant Captain America Statue for 75th Anniversary

5 July 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

All year long, Marvel has been celebrating the 75th Anniversary of their iconic hero Captain America. The celebration included the release of their blockbuster hit Captain America: Civil War, which has become the biggest 2016 movie at the box office with $405 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. Today we have word that the celebration will continue at Comic-Con with the unveiling of a massive Captain America statue.

A giant, bronze Captain America statue is Comic-Con- and Brooklyn-bound

5 July 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Remember that giant statue of the Man of Steel in Superman v Batman? Well, on the Marvel side of things, Captain America is getting his own effigy, for real. Here’s hoping it won’t get defaced like Superman’s did (but, hey who knows what we can really hope for when you consider the latest revelation about Cap in the comics). Just after American Independence Day, USA Today revealed Marvel’s plans for the 13-foot bronze statue of the patriotic superhero. (Alas, they decided it wouldn’t be the best use of resources to make it out of vibranium.) The statue will be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con later this month, then will take a cross-country trip before arriving at its final destination, Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. The statue will feature the inscription “I’m just a kid from Brooklyn,” words Steve Rogers spoke in the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger, »

Civil War Concept Art Shows Alternate Ant-Man Costume

29 June 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel kicked off the summer movie season last month with their epic sequel Captain America: Civil War, which has gone on to become the highest-grossing movie so far this year. The blockbuster has taken in over $400 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. Yesterday, concept artist Andy Park revealed early designs of Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, but today we have a new glimpse at Ant-Man's early costume design.

Andy Park actually designed the original costume for last summer's Ant-Man, so naturally he was the perfect choice to re-design a new look for Captain America: Civil War. In just five years, he's become a go-to artist for Marvel, having worked on Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, along with the TV shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil.

What Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye Almost Looked Like in Civil War

28 June 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the year halfway over, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War has set the bar high for every other blockbuster to come in 2016. The superhero adventure has already taken in $404 million at the domestic box office, and over $1.1 billion worldwide. This movie kicked off Phase Three in a huge way, featuring almost every Marvel superhero that has been established in the McU thus far, but today we have new artwork that shows how two heroes' costumes almost looked much differently.

Concept artist Andy Park shared early designs for both Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) on Twitter. There are two versions of the costumes for each character, which are both roughly the same, although for Scarlet Witch, one image features the character wearing a headband. In the alternate version for Hawkeye's costume, this archer is seen sporting a mask that covers almost his entire head, which would have been »

Warcraft crosses $400 million worldwide

27 June 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last week’s news that Duncan Jones’ big screen adaptation of Warcraft has become the biggest video game movie of all-time, it has unlocked another achievement.

Warcraft never really found its feet domestically, and has dropped out of the Top 10 after just three weeks (earning around $2 million over the weekend), and its domestic total of $43 million is much lower than the likes of other adaptations like Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Mortal Kombat and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

However a fantastic campaign outside of the Us has pushed Warcraft over the $400 million mark to $412 million. If you go by the industry rule-of-thumb (that a movie needs to do 2.5x its budget in order to turn a profit), Warcraft is now making money. Expect to hear news of a sequel soon.

Sony to build “a whole Spider-Man universe” with Marvel

24 June 2016 3:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Sony announced that it was developing a further two sequels to the Marc Webb reboot, along with spinoff movies for The Sinister Six and Venom.

Of course, the negative reaction to the 2014 sequel put paid to those plans, leading Sony to form a partnership with Marvel Studios to relaunch the wall-crawler as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Captain America: Civil War.

With filming on next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming now underway, The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman Tom Rothman, asking him whether the studio still intends on launching a “whole Spider-Man universe” and has any plans to work with Marvel beyond the main Spider-Man series.

“Yes to both those questions,” said Rothman. “It’s been fantastic, our relationship with Marvel. Sony has the ultimate authority. But we have deferred the creative lead to Marvel, because they know what they’re doing. »
