Mark Gibbon reportedly cast as General Zod in Supergirl

It looks like Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel is set to kneel before Zod, with Bleeding Cool reporting that Canadian actor Mark Gibbon is currently shooting scenes as the Kryptonian warlord in Supergirl.

Gibbon has plenty of previous experience with comic book roles, having appeared in the likes of Man of Steel, Arrow and Smallville, along with voice roles in the Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, X-Men: Evolution and Spider-Man Unlimited animated series.

This will mark the fourth live-action version of General Zod after Terence Stamp (Superman: The Movie, Superman II), Callum Blue (Smallville) and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel).

‘Monkey King’ Film to Bring Chinese Fable to America (Exclusive)

Hoping to turn the traditional West-to-East flow of intellectual property on its head, a new Chinese-American partnership has unveiled plans to bring a blockbuster retelling of the traditional Chinese myth of the Monkey King to English-language film screens.

Los Angeles-based Abstract Entertainment will join Eracme Entertainment of China in reimagining the story of the mythical monkey, born from stone, who takes on the magical powers of many transforming creatures.

While the character was first introduced in 16th century China in the novel “Journey to the West,” the producers believe that it will translate to modern audiences around the world, with the characters re-created through the sensibility of screenwriter Christopher Yost (of the “Thor” movies) and designed with direction from Richard Taylor, who created the imagery for “Lord of the Rings.”

“There has been a rush to bring Western-originated movies to the Chinese market,” said producers Mike Bundlie and Barry Levine,

'He-Man' Movie Recruits Marvel Writer
Sony Pictures has brought on Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter Christopher Yost to take a crack at the Masters of the Universe script, according to a new report at Variety. The project has been in development for years, but fans hoped that it may finally get off the ground earlier this year, when the studio released a new Masters of the Universe logo, and it was revealed that Jeff Wadlow's (Kick-Ass 2) script was complete. It seems the studio is going back to the drawing board with yet another writing coming on board.

The franchise is set on the planet Eternia, following a young man named Adam who has the power to turn himself into a mighty warrior named He-Man. Adam becomes the planet's last hope to defeat the evil Skeletor, who has devastated the entire planet on his quest to conquer castle Greyskull. It isn't known how much the plot

Thor Sequel Unlikely to Crack $100M on Debut Weekend in Us/Canada

Thor: The Dark World’ box office: ‘The Avengers’ bump to lead to $100 million weekend debut? Not likely (Photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Thor: The Dark World’) Thor: The Dark World opened with an estimated $7.1 million from Thursday evening, November 7, 2013, and Friday midnight shows at 3,841 North American theaters — more than 3,100 of those offering the Thor sequel in 3D. Directed by Alan Taylor, and starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tom Hiddleston, Thor: The Dark World far surpassed its Kenneth Branagh-directed predecessor at the domestic box office; the first film took in $3.3 million from Friday midnight screenings back in May 2011. (See also: “‘Thor 2′ box office: No Iron Man, Superman, Spider-Man, Batman.”) Now, one should remember that we’re comparing apples and pineapples here: the original Thor didn’t have the advantage of Thursday evening shows; also, the Branagh film was initially screened at only 1,800 locations. A similar distribution set-up also applies to another 2011 Marvel release,

Comics On TV: 'Iron Man: Armored Adventures'

by Ryan Rigley

Tony Stark may have blown up all of my Iron Man armors at the end of "Iron Man 3," but that certainly doesn't mean that he won't be Iron Man anymore. In fact, quite the contrary as Marvel Studios' co-president Louis D'Esposito tells it in a recent interview with IGN. "It's hard for me to say what he's doing [in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'], what his emotional mindset is, but you can see where it was where we left it at the end of 'Iron Man 3," states D'Esposito. "He's in love with Pepper, he's made a grand gesture to blow up the suits at that point — but in the end, he couldn't help himself. He'll go back to tinkering. That's what he does."

D'Esposito goes on to comment on the fact that connectivity plays an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, perhaps shedding some light on the whole Jarvis/Ultron theory.

Iron Man's "Armored Adventures" Aren't His Best Outings

It's safe to say that Iron Man: Armored Adventures isn't the worst animated series Marvel has ever produced, and for proof you need only look at the animated Iron Man series that preceded this one (and many other Marvel animated series in between). However, that doesn't excuse Iron Man: Armored Adventures from featuring a woefully poor choice in animation style, the unfortunate decision to revert Tony, Rhodey, and Pepper (and many of their rivals) to teenagers, or some generally bad and annoying characterization. Bad ideas abound in this Iron Man run and as it's likely to get a little more attention in the wake of Shane Black's forthcoming Iron Man 3, you can't help but wish that the armored hero had a better TV representation than this, even if it does tackle some decidedly advanced Iron Man storylines.
