Peyton Reed on replacing Edgar Wright as director of Ant-Man

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The latest issue of Empire Magazine serves up a preview of Marvel’s next superhero blockbuster Ant-Man, offering some insight into Edgar Wright’s shock departure from the project due to creative differences with Marvel Studios, as well as comments from incoming director Peyton Reed (Down with Love) about the pressure of stepping into Wright’s shoes.

“Was it a strange situation? Absolutely,” states Reed. “One of my concerns upfront was, ‘Someone else has developed this movie for a really long time. Can I come in and make it my own?’ And that has absolutely been the case. For one thing Marvel have let me explore the dark side of Hank Pym – this tortured, guilt-ridden guy. I love that this is a mentor/pupil story, but with a fucked up pupil and a really fucked up mentor.”

Batman V Superman: 10 Other Movie Mashups We’d Love To See

23 May 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel/Warner Bros.

The Dark Knight v Man of Steel. The Caped Crusader v The Last Son Of Krypton. Bruce Wayne v Clark Kent. The ultimate battle between the two biggest and best-known superheroes of all time. 

However excited you might be, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t hit the big screen until March 2016, but that doesn’t stop us from speculating over this, that and everything else that might happen in this mashup between two massive franchises.

Of course, it does provoke some other thoughts too. While franchise mashups have the obvious appeal of pulling together two big cult followings, they don’t exactly have a great reputation for being brilliant films. Alien Vs Predator being one example. Alien Vs Predator Requiem being another. 

Freddy Vs Jason (or A Nightmare on Friday 13th) performed equally badly at the box office, despite original Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) reprising his role. »

Interview: Actor David Dastmalchian on His Remarkable Film ‘Animals’

21 May 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sometimes you just need a break, that small window of opportunity to burst through and make the mark. Actor David Dastmalchian knows all about that phenomenon, as he produced and starred in his semi-autobiographical film “Animals,” and got the break of a lifetime landing a role in the film, “The Dark Knight.”

Dastmalchian is a consummate and enthusiastic gentleman, a performer who works hard, but has a humble and appealing attitude of gratitude. His star is ascending further this summer as he scored another role in a superhero epic, this time for Marvel Films, alongside Paul Rudd in “Ant-Man.” David Dastmalchian and director Collin Schiffli will also make a Chicago appearance this week (Friday, May 22nd, 2015) for the Chicago Opening Night screening of “Animals,” part of a limited nationwide release.

Thanks to The Brick Fan, we’ve got some official images of Lego’s upcoming Marvel Super Heroes set Ant-Man Final Battle, which may contain a spoiler or two for the film (and if you don’t want to risk it, you probably don’t want to look too closely at the minifigures)…

Video Game Review – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

21 May 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Rayner reviews The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt…

Games can be enthralling. Since their creation and gradual evolution they’ve been a medium that could grab you by the eyes and hold on for dear life until you realise, six red bulls and two cold pizzas later that you’ve been up for hours. It’s morning in fact, but you haven’t regretted a moment of finishing Ghouls ’n Ghosts final level, taking part in a bit of duck racing in Shenmue, finding that mystical lift rave that Crysis 2 offered up or even taking the time to master Bloodborne and destroy Margot’s Wet Nurse in a game of Knifey Spoony.

Since its announcement, The Witcher 3 has looked set to be the next game that robbed me of sleep. An RPG bringing in a boat load of action, exploration while lonely aiming for adults and their secret desire to »

Gotham Gets The Live-Action Treatment In Latest Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

21 May 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With little over a month until The Caped Crusader’s anticipated return, Rocksteady’s marketing campaign for Batman: Arkham Knight is beginning to reach its almighty crescendo. After detailing the threequel’s intriguing Dual Play mechanic last week, the studio has given Gotham the live-action treatment in the latest trailer, giving the franchise’s ardent fanbase an opportunity to “Be the Batman.”

Playing out from different perspectives across the crime-ridden city, the footage essentially runs down the characteristics of The Word’s Greatest Detective: Selfless, determined, courageous and feared. And while it’s all very over-the-top and not indicative of the final product, it’s still a neat package to garner excitement for Arkham Knight‘s debut in a month’s time.

Billed as the conclusive chapter in Rocksteady’s acclaimed series, Batman: Arkham Knight will orbit around a villainous army of crooks assembled by Jonathan Crane’s Scarecrow; a »

Video Games: "Be The Batman" In Inspiring Live-Action Trailer For Batman: Arkham Knight

20 May 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman: Arkham Knight is the final installment in the Batman “Arkham” video game series, which began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and a prequel title, Batman: Arkham Origins. The series will bring its trademark style to the Batmobile for the first time ever, giving players the option to either grapple above the streets of Gotham or tear through them in the armored behemoth (but let’s be honest, they’ll go with the latter). The Scarecrow, who hasn’t been seen since Arkham Asylum, will ascend as the game’s primary villain, along with the mysterious new Arkham Knight character. Kevin Conroy will once again bring The Dark Knight to life as the voice of Batman.   »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim confirms “lighter tone” and “more humour” in Season 4, talks DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

19 May 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re all caught up on Arrow then feel free to keep reading to find out the first non-spoilery news about Season 4. But if you’re still working your way through Season 1, 2 or 3 then perhaps you should just hit the back button as there will be some Spoilers ahead…

Season 3 of Arrow recently came to a close and undoubtedly contained some of the darkest moments on the show so far. So much so that it has been compared to elements of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Not a bad comparison by anyone’s standards but will the show continue the trend or will it branch away for Season 4?

Well show runner Marc Guggenheim has recently been speaking to io9 about his new comic book series The Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantum and the topic of Arrow came up, obviously. Guggenheim didn’t give too much »

The 13 Most Iconic Joker Moments

18 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Villains are everything to a story, and especially in the comic book medium, a hero is only as good as the villains that they thwart.  Batman has the most recognizable, most iconic, and overall best rogue’s gallery in all of comics.  From classics such as Two-Face, Catwoman, and the Riddler to relative newcomers like Bane, The Court of Owls, and Hush, all of these villains, and  are strongly ingrained in comic book lore to a degree unmatched by other comic book villains.  There are some heroes like Superman, Shazam, and the Hulk who have such a shallow crop of villains to draw from that it works against a creator’s ability to tell quality stories.  Batman doesn’t have this problem; in fact, one of the greatest comic book villains calls the Dark Knight his archenemy.

What makes the Joker such an exciting villain isn’t just his diabolical deeds, »
