Captain America: The Winter Soldier. X-Men: Days of Future Past. The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Seems that these days, you can't have a big Marvel sequel without a subtitle, and that's also the case for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which has reportedly received the subtitle Rise of Electro... for its release in Brazil at least, where Cinepop is reporting that it's going by the name O Espetacular Homem-Aranha 2: A Ameaça de Electro.
This isn't the first time that there's been talk of a subtitle for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with rumours circulating a few months back that Sony was testing The Amazing Spider-Man: The Price of Power and The Amazing Spider-Man: With Great Power, both of which are appalling if you ask me. And with the studio and director Marc Webb seemingly building towards the Sinister Six for either The Amazing Spider-Man 3 or The Amazing Spider-Man 4, Rise »

It’s that wonderful, frightful, cool and creepy time of year again, when everything including the leaves on the trees are dying and our taste buds are craving sugary sweets and pies made from the guts of our jack-o-lanterns. It’s October, which means Halloween is nearly upon us! Get you costumes completed, your home haunts constructed and your candy collected for trick’r treaters, because you have to make time to watch some of the scariest movies this time of year.
In an effort to assist you in your cinematic scare-fest, we’ve come up with a list of the scariest movies to watch on Halloween… with one caveat. We have excluded virtually all “slasher” flicks. Why? Well, let’s just say we all know them, we all love them on some level, but really… don’t we all want something more in our scary movies? In honor of »

14-year-old actor Chandler Riggs is best-known for playing creepy Carl Grimes on the wildly popular zombie apocalypse series The Walking Dead, but soon he'll play a kid terrorized by the living in the aptly titled home invasion thriller Home Invasion. THR reports Riggs and Ioan Grufudd of Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer have joined the cast that already included Shake It Up!'s Bella Thorne and Under The Dome's Natalie Martinez. The foursome will play the family under attack in the feature. Bella and Riggs are set to play the children of Grufudd, while Martinez will play their stepmother. There's no word yet on who will play the home invaders. Penned by up and coming screenwriter Joseph Dembner, Home Invasion follows this family's terrifying experience of being trapped in their own home by intruders who play a life-and-death game that's rules are unveiled as the night goes on. »
It appears that the previously rumoured list of young actresses battling it out for the role of Susan Storm was correct, as its now been revealed that the role will definitely be filled by one of the three lucky ladies. Josh Trank will direct 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise which is currently penciled in for a March 2015 release date.
It has very recently been rumoured that Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) has signed on to play Johnny Storm Aka the human torch (previously played by Chris-Captain America-Evans) in the upcoming film. Now comes word from the same source that either Margot Robbie, Kate Mara or Saoirse Ronan will be landing the role of Sue Storm Aka the invisible woman, previously played by Jessica Alba in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer.
Personally I’m voting for Saoirse Ronan to win the role, »

Well, it’s happening again. Twentieth Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot is being rewritten. Popular wisdom is that the more times a script is rewritten, the less likely it is to be any good. Let’s hope that’s not the case this time, because this one has passed through a whole lot of hands so far. Writers such as Michael Green, Seth Grahame-Smith, T.S. Nowlin, and Jeremy Slater have all taken a turn working on the script, and it’s about time to just get the thing done already. There needs to be a quality Fanastic Four movie soon before the franchise loses its luster entirely.
The new writer this time around is Simon Kinberg, who’s been around the superhero block before, having written X-Men: Last Stand (not a good sign) and produced X-Men: First Class (a slightly better sign). He’s also attached as a writer »

Wondering what's happening with that Fantastic Four reboot? According to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox has brought in Simon Kinberg to rework the script. THR also reports Kinberg (X-Men: First Class) will now be a producer on the action film based on the Marvel comics and previously brought to the screen in 2005 with Fantastic Four and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer in 2007.

Simon Kinberg has been hired to write Josh Trank's upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four. Jeremy Slater, Michael Green, Seth Grahame-Smith and T.S. Nowlin have all worked on previous drafts of the reboot for Fox as well.
The project was rumored to have already started production, but with this latest news, it seems that it's going to take a bit longer than expected for Fantastic Four to get in front of cameras. Josh Trank will be directing this remake, which is bringing the Marvel comics family back to the big screen for the first time since 2007's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which was less than well received by fans and critics alike.
Created in 1961 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the group includes the scientist Mr. Fantastic, his wife the Invisible Girl, her brother the Human Torch and the Thing. The story follows their sci-fi adventures with villains such as Green Goblin, »
Our weekly round up of all the latest stories from the world of screen superheroes, including Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor: The Dark World, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Panther, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, Watchmen, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Batman vs. Superman, Gotham, Constantine, Arrow, Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, Teen Titans Go!, Beware the Batman, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and more...
This week saw Marvel expanding its Cinematic Universe with the studio's first live-action small screen offering as Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson returned from the dead for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which premiered in the States on Tuesday (delivering TV's best drama debut in four years, with just under 12 million viewers) before heading to these shores last night.

Now is the time of the Comic Book Movie.
The genre has been in the ascendancy since Chris Nolan rebooted Batman to such success, and beyond even then, before terrible threequels derailed the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises, and with tent-pole releases upcoming for Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man, Superman & Batman, The Avengers and The Guardians Of The Galaxy among many others, the stock price for Marvel and DC movies has never been higher.
But, as with any bubble, this period of growth and success is particularly vulnerable to bursting spectacularly and taking out the genre entirely as has happened before. When Batman Forever was optioned, the spectacular failure of Batman & Robin can’t have been foreseen, and neither Bryan Singer nor Sam Raimi can have expected their threequels to attract so much hate.
Part of it is the naturally fickle nature of fans – not unjustified at all, since we pay the »

Quantum Creation FX posted their in-house tests: Tomar-Re (voiced by Geoffrey Rush) for Martin Campbell's Green Lantern and the Herald of Galactus (played by Doug Jones, voiced by Laurence Fishburne) for Tim Story's Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Neither of these character designs ended up being chosen for either film, but it's always fun to see what could've been. Do you like these versions better? Green Lantern was directed by Martin Campbell, from a script written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Michael J. Green, and Michael Goldenberg. The film starred: Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Mark Strong, Tim Robbins, Taika Waititi, Temuera Morrison, and Angela Bassett. Fantastic Four: Rise Of Silver Surfer was directed by Tim Story, based on a screenplay by Don Payne and Mark Frost. The cast included: Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon and Kerry Washington. With a budget of $130 million, »
New Barrow monster arriving for action in episode 15 in this new Teen Wolf season 3 spoiler. According to a recent report from TV Line, the Teen Wolf season 3 folks have casts actor Doug Jones (left) to come on and play a new Burrow monster in the upcoming episode 15, titled, "Galvanize." Unfortunately, no further details on the Burrow monster are available at the moment, so we'll just have wonder for right now. Also, we won't be seeing this episode until the show returns from its Fall hiatus after January 6th. Doug Jones acting resume includes roles in Hellboy, Falling Skies, The Outer Limits, The Neighbors. He also played one of the Gentlemen killers in Buffy and the Vampire Slayer's 4th season episode, called, "Hush." Additionally, Doug also appeared in Pan’s Labyrinth and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. »
Just in case you were worried that the world of Teen Wolf might get a little too safe and secure, the MTV drama is throwing a new monster into the mix.

Though other details about the mysterious murderer are scant, we know he’ll show up in Episode 15, which is titled “Galvanize” and which will air after the series returns from hiatus on Jan. 6.
Jones’ history of playing creepy characters includes TV’s The Outer Limits, »

Doug Jones has played many beloved and recognizable characters in movies like Helboy and Pan’s Labyrinth. But Jones himself may not be all that recognizable to audiences — he typically appears onscreen with his appearance totally transformed. The 53-year-old actor has developed a specialty in portraying fantastical characters created with heavy prosthetic makeup. He currently appears on TNT’s Falling Skies as the alien Cochise.
Showrunner Remi Aubuchon told EW that while they were casting Cochise, “we didn’t think we could ever get . He’s in great demand. But he was the first name that ever came up.”

Amazon's deal of the day seems only appropriate since it comes on the first day of Comic Con. The deal is a nine-movie Blu-ray bundle of Marvel movies from Fox Home Entertainment and it includes Bryan Singer's X-Men and X2, X-Men 3, X-Men: First Class, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Fantastic Four, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Daredevil and Elektra for only $59.99, 70% off the $199.99 retail price. You can buy it right here. I suspect many of you may already own some of these, but if you've been holding off on buying the first two X-Men films and maybe X-Men: First Class, it's a good way to not only pick those two up, but snag a few additional titles at the same time that you wouldn't mind revisiting. Personally, I own the X-Men Trilogy Blu-ray pack, which is actually only $24.99 (buy it here) right now if you'd rather go that route. »

"Back at Marvel, they are frantically looking for what is the next one they're going to do," Lee told MTV Geek at Wizard Con.
"There is no way they won't eventually do a Silver Surfer movie.
"It may not be for a few years because they're thinking and working on Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy. Everything we have. And the fans seem to want all of them. But they'll get around to a Silver Surfer feature because he's a wonderful character."
The Silver Surfer film rights are actually controlled by 20th Century Fox.
Stan Lee keeps on talking about Marvel films in development this week, adding another film to the list even though the rights issues with 20th Century Fox maked its fate not so clear. What is that film? Why the "Silver Surfer" movie of course. Lee says:
"There is no way they won't eventually do a 'Silver Surfer' movie. It may not be for a few years because they're thinking and working on 'Doctor Strange,' 'Black Panther,' 'Ant-Man,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' But they'll get around to a 'Silver Surfer' feature because he's a wonderful character."
