Why Ant-Man's Peyton Reed never made Fantastic Four for Fox

20 July 2015 11:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Before Ant-Man, Peyton Reed was once attached to direct 2005's Fantastic Four movie. It was not to be...

He's currently enjoying box office success with his movie of Marvel's Ant-Man, but for director Peyton Reed, he could nearly have been involved with another comic book movie adaptation.

He was once attached to direct the 2005 film of Fantastic Four that Fox at the time was putting together. The film would go on to star Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis in the lead roles, and would lead to one sequel. The reboot, as you probably know, is two weeks away, with Josh Trank directing.

Reed's time on the original Fantastic Four project, however, didn't seem to be too happy. "I was a huge Marvel fan when I was a kid", he told Yahoo, "and knew Fantastic Four inside out and felt they were always the crown jewel of Marvel. »

'Fantastic Four' Is an Epic Multipower Slugfest Says Director

3 July 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As a part of Entertainment Weekly's extensive Comic-Con preview, Fantastic Four director Josh Trank has offered new details about his upcoming superhero movie reboot. Marvel's first family is much younger in this version, with Miles Teller portraying Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman and Jamie Bell as The Thing. The director burst onto the scene with 2012's Chronicle, and he reveals that, while his first movie explored a group of youngsters discovering their powers, Fantastic Four takes a very different approach.

"Chronicle was all about the discovery and evolution of those powers. This is like, 'What if it's a couple years later and it sucks?'"

The director also teased the Fantastic Four's battle with the nefarious Doctor Doom, portrayed by Toby Kebbell, going onto tease the enormous scope of this next Marvel adventure.

"The audience should expect an epic, »

Silver Surfer Almost Got His Own Movie

11 June 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The last time Silver Surfer was seen on the big screen, he was serving as the villain-turned-ally in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Although the film.s ending left room for Silver Surfer to return at some point, that never happened. 20th Century Fox eventually abandoned that continuity in favor of rebooting Marvel.s First Family this August. However, had the first Fantastic Four film series continued, we may have gotten to see the Surfer lead his own spinoff film. When asked by Comicbook.com about the Silver Surfer film that had been talked about several years ago, Doug Jones, who physically played the Surfer (Laurence Fishburne provided the voice), revealed a script had been written for the Surfer.s own adventure. Said Jones: My understanding was, that was a part of that three picture deal that never panned out. J. Michael Straczynski did write a script for »

Doug Jones, The Man of 1000 Faces: An Interview with Cochise from Falling Skies

10 June 2015 5:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Manny Camacho chats with Doug Jones about Falling Skies, Hellboy, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer and more…

Summer is here, for some it’s still coming, as they wait for a variety of summer series that begin this month. For me winter is still here, it came (and I hope it doesn’t leave) with Game of Thrones—I don’t even remember spring. But the summer season is just beginning with amazing new entries in a variety of series. For one of those shows it is the beginning of the end. Falling Skies begins its final season June 28th and there are so many questions for us that need answered.

Flickering Myth had a great opportunity to sit and chat with Star Doug Jones, who plays the enigmatic Volm Cochise. I was able to talk to him about this upcoming season and what it means to the 2nd Mass. »

Fox Pulls Previous "Fantastic Four" Films

9 June 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the lead up to the release of 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Four" reboot in cinemas this August, Fox has yanked the two previous live-action "Fantastic Four" films from 2005 & 2007 from digital platforms.

Searches on iTunes and Amazon.com list both "Fantastic Four" and its sequel "Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer" as "currently unavailable" with a source telling THR that they've been pulled so as "not to distract from promotion of the rebooted franchise which is seeking to establish a different tone than the previous releases".

The source says this practice is not that uncommon, and the older films could once again be available digitally after this summer's release. The DVD and Blu-ray hard copies remain on sale. »

Jessica Alba didn't exactly receive rave reviews for her performance in Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, but the actress did impress in both Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Will she ever take on another comic book movie role? Marvel snapped up Chris Evans after he played Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four movies, so it's certainly possible!

Underworld: Next Generation Heads For Production With Kate Beckinsale And A Female Director

15 May 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While audiences have been calling for female directors to be given more opportunities to direct franchise films made by giant names such as DC and Marvel, Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems have quietly stolen that thunder by tapping Anna Foerster to helm Underworld: Next Generation. The fifth instalment in this female-led action franchise will be the first in the series to be directed by a woman.

The franchise is characterised as an action-horror film series, and centres on a female lead named Selene (Kate Beckinsale). When she is first introduced in 2003’s Underworld, she is a vampire working to kill Lycans, because she believes they murdered her family. Over the course of the following three films – the second of which (2009’s Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans) is a prequel – a larger battle is revealed, in which vampires and Lycans are at war, until both species are eventually hunted by humans »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn wrote a Silver Surfer treatment for Fox

2 May 2015 3:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has taken to Facebook to reveal that back in the late 1990s he spent time working on another of Marvel’s cosmic properties, producing a treatment for a Silver Surfer movie for 20th Century Fox.

“Little known fact: When I first moved to La in 1999, one of the first people I met on a meeting was an exec at Fox. He told me they wanted to make a Silver Surfer movie, and I might be right for that, so I wrote an extensive treatment. It was a huge story, cosmic as hell, and featured the Silver Surfer turning on Galactus (but no Fantastic Four – this was before the first Ff film). At the same time, I was approached by director Jay Roach and his producer Shauna Robertson about writing a live-action Spy Vs. Spy film. That film seemed more likely to get made, »

Double Duty: 9 Actors who’ve Played Both Marvel and DC Characters

25 April 2015 6:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Daredevil moonlighting as Batman? For some actors, one comic book character isn’t enough, nor is one comic publisher. Some actors have jumped the fence between Marvel and DC, playing characters from both companies.

Marvel and DC may have a rivalry going, but that doesn’t stop them from hiring actors who’ve previously worked for the competition. Below is a list of nine actors who’ve portrayed characters from both comic book publishers.

Ryan Reynolds

For Marvel: His first foray into the super hero realm was as Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004). Later, he joined Hugh ‘Wolverine’ Jackman as part of the X-franchise, taking on the role of the mutant Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in X-Men: Origins-Wolverine (2009). He is set to recreate this role in Deadpool (2016)

For DC: He got his big opportunity for super hero stardom playing the cosmic hero with the power ring in Green Lantern (2011). Sadly, that »

Will 'The Rogues' Finally Assemble In The Flash's Finale? It Certainly Looks That Way...

21 March 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Hellboy actor Doug Jones has confirmed via Twitter (see below) that his Arrow villain Deathbolt will be making an appearance in the season one finale of The Flash. We obviously haven't met him yet or seen what he's capable of, so time will tell whether or not this is something to get excited about. However, Jones' Tweet also confirmed that the episode will be titled "Rogue Air", a name which perhaps has a lot more in common with a certain supervillain team than it does the Reverse-Flash. "We’re going to do something with all the Rogues. I can’t promise it’s going to be this season," showrunner Andrew Kreisberg recently told TV Line. "We know that if the original [1990s] Flash series had gotten a second season, both John [Wesley Shipp] and Mark [Hamill] have told us that the first episode was going to »

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

Doug Jones cast as Deathbolt in Arrow

18 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Oliver Queen’s skills are going to be put to the test by his first super-powered villain this season, with IGN reporting that Doug Jones is set to appear in Arrow as Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt.

Making his debut in 1983 in All-Star Squadron #21, Deathbolt was the result of an experiment by the Ultra-Humanite, which left him with several metahuman abilities, including the power to absorb and manipulate electricity.

Jones has previously comic book experience, having played Abe Sapien in Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy movies, as well as the Silver Surfer in Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He also appeared as ‘Thin Clown’ in 1992’s Batman Returns.

Hellboy Actor Doug Jones Joins Arrow As 'Deathbolt'

18 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has appeared on Arrow, the titular Emerald Archer has yet to face off against an actual SUPERvillain over the course of the show's run. Well, that will change in the upcoming nineteenth episode (titled "Broken Arrow") when he takes on Deathbolt. This character -- real name is Jake Simmons -- was first introduced in All-Star Squadron #21 back in 1983, and had the power to manipulate electricity. According to IGN, in Arrow Simmons will "be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy." Deathbolt will be played by Doug Jones, who should be well known around these parts as a frequent collaborator of Guillermo del Toro's, on projects such as Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth and The Strain. He also starred in Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer as the cosmic Marvel hero of the title. »
