Anthony Stokes explains why he thinks Comic Book Movies have become more than just the latest trend...
The last decade has been incredibly good to Comic Book Movies. Not only are there a significant amount of comic book movies coming out every year, but they're making a lot of money. Comic Book Movies used to be a once a year thing, and now they're coming within weeks of each other (this year alone sees the release of Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Kick-Ass 2, R.I.P.D., The Wolverine, Red 2, 2 Guns, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Thor: The Dark World). But all good things must come to an end eventually, right?
I would say no. Of course everything has an ebb and flow, and we may get to the point where we get back to one or two Comic Book Movies a year, but »

How far did J.J. Abrams go to keep the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's "Star Trek Into Darkness" villain a secret? So far, that he manipulated certain footage to prevent media members from getting an advanced reveal at Cumberbatch's "Star Trek" name.
During a visit to the Bad Robot production studios last year, Abrams showed a group of journalists the "Star Trek Into Darkness" scene where Cumberbatch and Chris Pine's Captain Kirk fly through space in super suits. The sequence happens more than an hour into the film, after the true origin of Cumberbatch's villainous John Harrison is unveiled. (No spoilers here, but check IMDb or this HuffPost piece from Monday.)
"[Producer] Bryan Burk was the one who first proposed that we use the space jump sequence as a way of getting folks excited for the movie," co-writer Damon Lindelof told Slashfilm. "The challenge was obvious [because] this is After the reveal. »

Update: Turns out that Kevin Conroy's comments at yesterday's Dallas Comic-Con have been taken out of context by several media outlets (ourselves included) as it would appear that the fan favourite won't be voicing The Dark Knight after all.
However, the point still remains that Conroy said he was working on "the next Arkham game" - does he know something we don't? The new trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins was released earlier which you can check out below:
Batman: Arkham Origins is set for release this October for Xbox 360 and PS3. »

Warning: Spoilers Running Free.
Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.
Seeing as how it's used once again in "Star Trek Into Darkness," let's cite five recent examples of this cliché in the hopes that we can declare a moratorium on it ... at least until it counts as nostalgia.
Culprit #1: 'The Dark Knight' (2008)
Mastermind: The Joker (Heath Ledger)

Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy turned out to be a multi-billion dollar hit, and "Man of Steel" is on track to become another massive success for the Warner Bros. But the studio has yet to reveal its master plan for its DC superheroes, especially the status of "Justice League of America." Variety has now learned that Warners Bros will definitely begin work on "Justice League" soon, because the studio has signed a major deal with Target to begin selling "Justice League" merchandise, focusing on Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman. Even though this looks like nothing more than Warner Bros attempting to sell a few toys, Variety says that the plan is to get consumers used to seeing DC superheroes in retail stores. All in preparation for a "Justice League" movie. Click here to read more about "Justice League of America." »

With Sam Mendes passing on the opportunity to helm the next instalment in the James Bond franchise, Eon Productions has a pretty big job on its hands replacing the Skyfall director for 007's next big screen adventure. However, if a new rumour is to be believed, it seems that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking to turn to another acclaimed British filmmaker, with The Daily Mail reporting that Christopher Nolan is in early talks about directing Bond 24.
On the surface, it seems highly unlikely that Nolan could fit Bond 24 into his schedule, with The Dark Knight Trilogy director currently prepping his mysterious sci-fi flick Interstellar, which is due to open in cinemas on November 7th, 2014. However, back in March MGM Chairman Gary Barber said to expect Daniel Craig's fourth outing "within the next three years" so it could be a possibility if Sony, Eon »

We knew it would be big, but did anyone really think it would be this big? After just 25 days on release, Marvel's Iron Man 3 has become the first film of 2013 to cross $1 billion at the global box office, and only the 16th film in history to achieve that feat.
As of today the Shane Black-directed solo sequel is now the fourth biggest comic book movie of all time behind The Avengers ($1.511 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1.004 billion). It looks certain to surpass both Dark Knight films and go on to crack the all time top ten, with tenth place currently occupied by Pixar's Toy Story 3 on $1.063 billion, and could even end up occupying a spot in the top five.

Now that Warner Bros.’ television and home entertainment divisions have been re-aligned, all eyes are focused on whether newly installed CEO Kevin Tsujihara will implement a similar management shakeup at the studio’s motion picture operation.
The fate of the movie group’s top executive, Jeff Robinov, is on the minds of those both inside and outside the Burbank lot. Despite his skills as a seasoned creative executive and a summer lineup of potential blockbusters that’s the envy of his rivals, Robinov, 54, has made some major missteps that raise questions about his leadership.
When he learned in late January that he hadn’t landed the CEO job at Warner Bros., the executive did something unthinkable: He yelled at and hung up the phone on his boss, Barry Meyer, after the WB honcho delivered the bad news to him the night before the announcement of Tsujihara’s promotion was made public. »

Marvel is proud to announce that "Iron Man 3" has now crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, and in just 23 days of release. This is the second Marvel film the sixth Disney movie to reach the milestone. Other Disney films to have accomplished this are "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," "Alice in Wonderland," "Toy Story 3," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "The Avengers." "Iron Man 3" has become the fourth highest-grossing superhero movie of all time (behind "The Avengers," "The Dark Knight Rises" and "The Dark Knight") and sixteenth highest-grossing film of all time. It just needs another $84 million to become the biggest superhero movie. Click here to read our "Iron Man 3" review. »
Ever since "Skyfall" grossed over $1 billion at global box office and became the most successful James Bond installment, producers started thinking about how they will top it. Unfortunately, Sam Mendes will likely not return to direct and people like Danny Boyle have no interest in tackling franchise films. So the one name that keeps popping up is Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight), who previously said that he would one day love to direct a James Bond movie. The Daily Mail is now reporting that "James Bond" producer Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have approached Nolan and negotiations are now in early stages. Nolan is currently working on his "Interstellar" film, and it's not clear if he'll be able to complete it and still have time to begin work on the new Bond movie. Stay tuned. »
