7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Cage star Mike Colter has signed on to appear in the cast of Universal Pictures’ sci-fi thriller Extinction, where he joins Michael Pena (Ant-Man), Lizzy Caplan (Allied) and Israel Brossard (The Bling Ring).

Extinction is being directed by Ben Young (Hounds of Love) from a script by Eric Heisserer (Arrival), Spenser Cohen (Moonfall) and Bradley Caleb Kane (Black Sails). Specific plot details are being kept under wraps, but the film will see Pena as a man trying to protect his family during an alien invasion.

Colter will next be seen on the big screen in Universal’s Girls Trip, while he also reprises his role as Luke Cage for Netflix’s upcoming Marvel team-up The Defenders. »

Expect Hope Van Dyne To Have A Much Bigger Role In Ant-Man And The Wasp

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

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne had a fairly significant role in Ant-Man, but many fans were disappointed that she never had the chance to suit up as The Wasp. The movie ended with that being teased, of course, and now everyone is excited to see her take centre stage in the appropriately titled Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Originally, the plan was for her to appear as the hero in Captain America: Civil War, but Marvel decided to save that moment for the Ant-Man sequel to make it really count. For those of you worrying that the character isn’t being properly utilized, though, fear not, as the film’s director, Peyton Reed, had this to say recently:

“It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second »

In one of the most emotional Walk of Fame ceremonies, Chris Pratt was presented his star in Hollywood on April 21, 2017 with his wife Anna Faris, their son Jack and family in attendance.

Pratt said, “I want to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you.”

He added, “We have bonded to make this molecule that is more important to me than air or water, and without it none of this means anything to me. With every challenge, with every day, week, month, decade, we become more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring, and thank you for your trust and your sacrifice – and for your dedication and your heart. I will do my best to protect it, »

Director James Gunn Allowed Himself More Freedom On Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

21 April 2017 1:11 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Marvel Studios has a reputation of wrestling too much creative control out of the hands of its directors. Joss Whedon didn't come back for Avengers: Infinity War because of his creative differences with Marvel over Avengers: Age of Ultron and Patty Jenkins was one of the directors to abandon a Marvel project completely when she left Thor: The Dark World.

Guardians of the Galaxy was the weirdest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2014, and since then projects have been getting more unique and bold like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange. Nancy Tapia attended a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 press junket for Lrm, where the director of the film, James Gunn, was asked if he had more freedom for the even weirder sequel:

"The truth is, the great thing about working with, especially with Kevin [Feige], all of Marvel, but especially Kevin who I have an especially close bond with »

Warning: There Are Spoilers In This Article

We’ve seen a few set photos from Avengers: Infinity War [see here and here], but there hasn’t been anything major. However some new photos via E! News show a major plot point of the movie involving Vision and Scarlet Witch.

The photos see Paul Bettany (sans Vision outfit) kissing Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), playing off the relationship teased in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.

Word on the street is this is a possible dream sequence, after all Vision is human in the photos and doesn’t have anything on him that could CGI’d in post. The other possibility is that once Thanos removes the Mind Gem from Vision, the character will »

Black Panther footage and Ant-Man and the Wasp concept art descriptions arrive online

19 April 2017 4:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Marvel Studios held an open house, inviting outlets to get a special peek at several of its upcoming Phase Three offerings. We’ve already had details on Captain Marvel’s directors, promo art from Thor: Ragnarok, and a reveal from Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that he’s playing Korg, and now thanks to The Hollywood Reporter we’ve got a description of some Black Panther footage that was shown, along with concept art for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

“Journalists were treated to footage of a coronation scene for T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), who appears bare-chested and holding ceremonial weapons to take on the monarch role left empty following his father’s death in Captain America: Civil War,” states THR’s report. “In another scene, Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) stealthily takes down a group of gun-toting bad guys, and in a third, Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) rolls into »

The Larger Implications of Hollywood’s De-Aging Fascination

19 April 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Hollywood seems hell-bent on de-aging its stars. We look at what this really says about the blockbuster ecosystem.

Oh, Ridley. Every time director Ridley Scott seems to be making headway with his audiences — where people start believing that maybe 2012’s Prometheus might not actually be the kiss of death for the Alien franchise we all feared — he has to go and say something that turns the dial back to zero. Earlier this week, an excerpt from Empire Magazine’s feature on Alien: Covenant included one particularly disheartening tidbit: Scott was not necessarily ruling out the decision to digitally de-age Sigourney Weaver in future films in the franchise. And while some might consider this simply wild speculation on the part of Scott, his colleague, or the magazine, there’s enough smoke here that we should probably address this head on: digital de-aging isn’t necessarily a bad technique, it’s just a terribly unimaginative one.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct Captain Marvel

19 April 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday Ant-Man helmer Peyton Reed revealed that Marvel had found its director for the Brie Larson-headlined Captain Marvel movie, and now Variety has revealed that we’ll have not one but two people behind the camera, with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) set to direct the studio’s first female-led superhero movie.

According to the site, Marvel wanted to make sure that the script from Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) was on track before enlisting a director. Studio execs apparently met with multiple candidates, but were impressed by the vision of Boden and Fleck, whose other directorial credits include Half Nelson and episodes of The Affair and Billions.

Peyton Reed teases that Ant-Man's suit can do new & even stranger things

18 April 2017 4:59 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although I will continue to fantasize about the Edgar Wright version of Ant-man that could have been, I found Peyton Reed's take on the film to be surprisingly entertaining. Ant-man certainly isn't top-tier Marvel, but there was more than enough to like to keep me pumped about the upcoming sequel.

Marvel Opens Its Doors: 4 Reasons the Studio Continues to Rule Hollywood’s Comic Book Realm

18 April 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On Monday evening, Marvel Studios opened up its sleek offices at Disney’s Frank Wells building in Burbank for a press tour ahead of a screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

As long as media were arriving on the lot to see the movie anyway, Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige figured they might as well get a behind-the-scenes Marvel sneak peek. “We haven’t done this, come upstairs and walk around,” he told me, “and it felt like it was time to do it. We have some cool stuff on the walls.”

Indeed, much like the Lucasfilm headquarters in San Francisco or Steven Spielberg’s Amblin on the Universal lot, the hallways are studded with sacred icons and objects from the Marvel Comics Universe, from iterations of “Iron Man” suits and Captain America’s shield to Thor’s mighty hammer. Work cubicles are lined with comics and action figures, »

James Gunn Should Make as Many ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Movies As He Wants

18 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No two words have been as closely associated with the modern comic book movie than “dark” and “gritty,” oft-repeated buzzwords that speak to an attitude and style that have not always panned out for the franchise-leaning features (a lesson that DC continues to learn the hard way). Filmmaker James Gunn doesn’t do gritty — at least when it comes to his “Guardians of the Galaxy” features, though his earlier work, which includes 2006’s clever riff on cheesy sci-fi “Slither” and 2010’s just plain nasty “Super,” reveal wry hints of deviousness to his aesthetic that his Marvel properties happily circumvent.

That has allowed him to craft some of the franchise’s most purely entertaining installments — “Guardians” and its sequel, which opens May 5 — and it’s no surprise that he’s already signed up to direct a third “Guardians” movie, making him the first filmmaker to tackle three Marvel movies in a row. »

Marvel's Kevin Feige on Why the Studio Won't Make R-Rated Movies, 'Guardians 2' and Joss Whedon's DC Move

18 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

If Monday was a comic book, it would have had “Special Collector's Item” written all over it.

In a rare move, and with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's opening just a few weeks out, Marvel Studios opened the doors of its headquarters on the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California, offering a peek inside its movie-making process.

Designs of characters and worlds were glimpsed (Thanos!), dailies were shown (Black Panther!), directors such as Thor: Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi and Ant-Man’s Peyton Reed shared thoughts on their process. (Read that here.)

Inside Marvel Studios: Secrets About 'Black Panther,' 'Captain Marvel,' 'Thor: Ragnarok' & More!

18 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's a risk letting anyone see how the superhero sausage is made, but that's exactly what Marvel Studios did when they opened the doors of their offices to a pack of reporters on Monday night for an Open House. The itinerary for the event was shrouded in secrecy — Marvel's usual M.O. when it comes to anything connected to their Cinematic Universe — so each room on the tour contained some new surprise, unfolding like a game of Clue where the players are mostly actors named Chris.

After Shaun of the Dead writer/director Edgar Wright left Ant-Man a few years ago, he was shopping a few projects around town in an attempt to set up his next movie.

Edgar Wright Sets Up His Next Film, ‘Grasshopper Jungle,’ at New Regency

13 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Resting on laurels is for suckers.

It’s been four excruciatingly long years since The World’s End, the last film from Edgar Wright, which in Edgar-Wright-fan years is like a century. He was set up to direct Ant-Man, but we all know how that turned out. And while you might think Wright spent some of his time post-Marvel licking that particular wound, you’d be wrong, because Edgar Wright knows that living well is the best revenge, so in the last few years he’s been busy gearing up for not one but two films. Immediately after Ant-Man Wright started developing Baby Driver, which is at long last completed, set for a June 28 release, and so far is garnering the best reviews of the director’s career. At the same time he was starting Baby Driver back in 2014, though, there was another project the director was kicking around, an adaptation of the novel Grasshopper Jungle, and »

Edgar Wright’s ‘Grasshopper Jungle’ Moving Again With New Regency

12 April 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When Edgar Wright exited Marvel‘s “Ant-Man” in the spring of 2014, it was the kind of move that would’ve frozen some directors, and left them wondering what to do next. But Wright didn’t waste much time in looking ahead, setting up two films in quick succession: “Baby Driver,” which opens in theaters this summer, and an adaptation of Andrew Smith‘s novel “Grasshopper Jungle.” And fresh off the heels of “Baby Driver,” that latter project is gaining heat.
