Report: Suicide Squad Runtime Clocks In At 130 Minutes

Sources close to Collider claim that Suicide Squad will stretch for just over two hours when David Ayer’s anti-hero feature lands in August.

Closing in on the end of post-production, with tie-in music videos already beginning to surface, a report emerging today seemingly reveals that Warner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated tentpole will run for exactly 130 minutes, credits included.

Take this one with a pinch of salt, of course, considering that David Ayer’s latest status report from WB noted that the production team still have a handful of last-minute tasks to tick off (read: final mix and coloring).

For the sake of perspective, and assuming Collider’s sources are on point, at 130 minutes in length, Suicide Squad would clock in as one of the shorter superhero movies to emerge from the genre in recent times. Green Lantern, for instance, »

Why Doesn’t the McU Acknowledge any Marvel Small Screen Series?

25 June 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Marvel Studios TV shows exist in the same shared universe as the big screen McU films. The series’ often make references to the films. Why, then, do the films never acknowledge anything that happens on television or on Netflix?

 

We all know that the Dceu is completely unrelated to its TV shows, but the same is not true for any Marvel-based shows. Agents of Shield, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Agent Carter all exist within the McU. These shows frequently use events from the films as part of their storyline. For instance, the entire trajectory of Agents of Shield was altered by the fall of Shield plot used in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The alien attack on New York from The Avengers was mentioned many times as part of Wilson Fisk’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) motivation on Daredevil. Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) has popped up a few times on Agents of Shield. »

Watch Tom Cruise Go Ballistic in 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' Trailer

22 June 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's been four years since Tom Cruise first suited up as Lee Child's elite Military Police Corps Officer Jack Reacher, but in the new trailer for the second in the spy-vs-spy franchise — titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back — he's re-started his revenge rampage without skipping a beat.

"Two things are going to happen in the next 90 seconds," Cruise informs two sheriffs at the beginning of the clip, as he sits bloodied and bruised in a diner. "First, that phone over there is going to ring. Second ... you're going to »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Begins Shooting, First Set Photo Arrives

20 June 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans are currently celebrating Tom Holland's very welcomed addition as Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He wasn't a main character in Captain America: Civil War, but he was surely the standout and now everyone is waiting for Spider-Man: Homecoming next year. We are now one step closer to the movie becoming a reality as Homecoming looks like it has started production and has also added several new cast members.

Firstly, The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Spider-Man: Homecoming has added three new and young cast members to the growing ensemble. Newcomers Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. and J.J. Totah. have all joined Holland for the movie, presumably as classmates for Peter Parker. No character details were revealed for any of these new cast members.

These additions are continuing with the trend of Marvel looking to diversify Homecoming, as Lendeborg and Totah are helping to make the movie less »

Thor Ragnarok: What We Know

18 June 2016 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios for the first time in 2017 will be releasing 3 films in theaters, and that has fans pretty excited. We will be getting the much anticipated sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, which is shaping up to be a pretty great sounding sequel. Not only is James Gunn hard at work with Chris Pratt and the gang, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is also on the way, which will be the first solo Spidey film in the Marvel Cinematic universe. Tom Holland killed it in Captain America: Civil War, and we absolutely can't wait to see what he can do in a full length movie.

Amidst all of that excitement though is the looming conclusion of the Thor trilogy. Thor: Ragnarok was announced along with the rest of Marvel's phase 3 slate a while back and at the time it seemed unlikely that the movie would be able to rise above the noise »

Who's Side Is Thor Really on in Captain America: Civil War?

16 June 2016 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Captain America: Civil War hit theaters, practically every character who has been previously established in the Marvel Universe was accounted for, with two notable exceptions, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). In the months leading up to Captain America: Civil War, it was confirmed that Hulk would return in Thor: Ragnarok, where both heroes would go on a "cosmic road trip" together. With both Hulk and Thor out of the picture for Civil War, many fans have wondered which side these heroes would take in this epic battle. Now, one of Marvel's new directors is offering an interesting theory.

Earlier this year, Taika Waititi signed on to direct Thor: Ragnarok, which was seen by many as an unusual choice. The filmmaker is best known for his comedies such as Eagle vs. Shark, What We Do In the Shadows and his work on the cult classic TV series Flight of the Conchords. »

Who Wins in a Fight Between Ghostbusters and The Avengers?

16 June 2016 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's almost here! The new Ghostbusters will finally be in theaters this July, finally answering whether or not it's the worst movie of 2015. A lot of fans believe it simply isn't worth their time, but the charming cast keeps going out of their way to prove they have a sense of humor about the whole thing. While all the controversy and misogynist comments have been countered by the cast on multiple occasions this past week, finally some fun has come out of one of the cast Q&As. Yes, they finally answer the question we've all been dying to know. Who would win in a fight between The Avengers and the new Ghostbusters?

The question is pertinent for the simple fact that Avengers star Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, bailed on this summer's Captain America: Civil War so that he could appear as the dimwitted secretary Kevin in director Paul Feig's all-female Ghostbusters reboot. While the cast mulls over the question long and hard, it's star Leslie Jones who steps in to squash any speculation with one quick definitive answer. She simply states the truth.

"The Avengers."

And she's probably right. While these new Ghostbustin' ladies have all kinds of new weapons used to fight off ghost attacks and capture pesky spectral beings who like to haunt the living, they'd be no match for Tony Stark and his Iron Man armor. And that's without the other Avengers having his back. Along with this fun EW cast Q&A, we also get a look at the cover of their latest issue. It features not only Leslie Jones, but the other three scientists as well, including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and scene stealer Kate McKinnon.

Fans have waited 30 years since the first Ghostbusters arrived in 1984 to see a new team take on the franchise. But it's been a very bumpy road, with many complaining about this updated iteration that completely throws the original Ghostbusters into the ether claiming they don't exist. Though, the surviving Ghostbusters from the 80s will all be putting in cameos at some point in the movie, including Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray. While the original gang has showered praise on the reboot in recent days, Kristen Wiig is quick to point out they'll never be able to top the first movie and its legacy.

"You can't get better than the original. But it's a different movie, it's a different cast, it's many years later, and we've also done things that are different. It's not just about it starring women."

Some fans believe it is All about the fact that this series now focuses on woman. And their screams of hate have been heard loud into the night. The first trailer even has the distinction of being the most hated movie trailer on Youtube. But the cast is trying to fight their way through it leading up to the release. Leslie Jones has a difference stance on things now, as they've transpired in the last few months. She says this.

"When people started asking me about the gender stuff, I would say, 'It's not a man thing, it's not a woman thing. It's a Ghostbuster thing.'

Melissa McCarthy simply can't even believe having an all-female cast in a blockbuster summer tent pole is still something to complain about. She wrongly believed that society had moved past all that. But apparently she was wrong. She explains.

"I just thought, 'Really? Are we still there?' It's a movie. I never gave it another thought. You just have to go, 'Well, I hope you get out a little more. The world is fun.' I really think it's the minority."

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly will be on newsstands and in mailboxes this Friday. Inside, you'll get to hear even more from the stars about the big Ghostbusters controversy. But they will also address having Chris Hemsworth on set and the fact that the production was invaded by a series of gaseous fumes. Though, it might not have been Slimer who was responsible for letting the 'Fart out of the bag!' As star Kate McKinnon put it, feigning responsibility. You can check out the new EW cover featuring the 2016 Ghostbusters here.

Tom Hiddleston Seems to Have Swept Taylor Swift Off Her Feet: Further Proof That He's the Real-Life James Bond

Hiddleston. Tom Hiddleston. For those of you who didn't fall for his odd allure as Loki in Thor and The Avengers, or didn't crush on him as F. Scott Fitzgerald in Midnight in Paris, or weren't uncomfortably drawn to him in Crimson Peak—or heaven forbid, were not completely convinced that he could play 007 after watching him spy, lie, save the day and bed the girl(s) in The Night Manager—take note. This is Taylor Swift's new man (or at least her new sitting-on-a-rock-and-kissing buddy), and no matter what he does next, or how long it lasts... He's in the pantheon.

Will Marvel Have More Than One Spider-Man in the McU?

14 June 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a year where Marvel Studios will be releasing a sequel to the wildly popular Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok, which will wrap up the Thor trilogy with Mark Ruffalo's Hulk along for the ride, somehow, all eyes seem to be elsewhere. Spider-Man: Homecoming is also coming out next year and after Tom Holland killed it as Spidey in Captain America: Civil War, it is more than understandable. But Holland may not be the lone webslinger in the McU.

It was announced recently by Deadline that Community star Donald Glover is joinging the first Spider-Man movie that will be part of the McU in an unspecified role. Though, any Marvel fan worth their salt has a damn good idea who he may be playing. Yes, speculation is already running rampant that Glover will be playing the Ultimate Universe version of Spider-Man, Miles Morales. If that turns out to be true, that would mean that at some point, there will be more than one Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But how likely is it? Well, let's take a look at the possible evidence.

Glover has been circling Spider-Man for ages now. There was a massive fan campaign to get him to play the character back when Sony was in the process of doing their Amazing Spider-Man reboot. Glover was way behind the idea but ultimately it went to Andrew Garfield. In addition, he has been providing the voice for Miles Morales in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated TV series, so he already has a strong familiarity with the character.

For those who may not know, Miles Morales took up the Spider-Man mantle in the Ultimate Marvel Universe (which takes place outside of the main Marvel Comics Universe) following the death of Peter Parker. He is a young kid of African American and Hispanic descent and has powers similar to Parker's Spider-Man, but with some differences. The character first appeared in 2011 and quickly became a huge hit with fans and there has been demand to see him on the big screen pretty much from the get go.

Glover being cast is surely raising some flags in favor of Morales finally coming to the big screen, and his casting seems to really fit what Marvel seems to be doing with Spider-Man: Homecoming. So far, it seems to be a pretty diverse cast of both young and old and it looks like it won't be just a bunch of white people running around in Queens, New York. However, given Glover's history with the character of Mile Morales, it seems very unlikely that Marvel would ignore that entirely. They are smart.

Parker and Morales have met in the comics, so there is definitely precedent for the characters sharing some time fighting crime. Plus, Kevin Feige and Co. really need to find a way to make Homecoming and Spidey in general different enough to have us not feel fatigue from the various reboots the property has gone through in a relatively short period of time. Adding a second Spider-Man to the mix would be a way to do that and fans would be likely very excited about Morales joining up with The Avengers.

Lastly, if we are grasping at straws for evidence here, in the first season of Daredevil on Netflix, Foggy Nelson did make a reference to a "Morales" who worked at the law firm he and Matt Murdock worked at. There is almost no way that was a complete coincidence. The only glaring problem is that Glover is 32 and the character of Miles Morales is much younger, at least in the comic books. Perhaps Glover will be Miles' dad? Uncle? Both of whom play a role in the comics.

It seems like Miles Morales is an eventuality for the McU, but we just don't know if he will ever share the screen with Peter Parker. Rumors are circulating that the 2018 Sony animated Spider-Man movie will feature Morales, but that has yet to be confirmed. If Marvel is building to a Sinister Six movie down the line, which evidence suggests they may be, than planting the seeds to have Parker and Morales take on Doc Ock and the gang together could be a really cool way to go with. We will have to wait and see when Spider-Man: Homecoming drops on July 7, 2017. »

Ben Wheatley’s High-rise to be Released on Blu-ray / DVD this August

14 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Based on J.G. Ballard’s brilliant novel of the same name, Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise stars Tom Hiddleston as Dr. Robert Laing, who discovers a new way of life after moving into a skyscraper packed with peculiar characters. If you missed High-Rise in theaters, don’t despair, because Magnolia Home Entertainment will give the film a Blu-ray / DVD release this summer.

High-Rise is scheduled to come out on Blu-ray and DVD on August 2nd. Special features and official cover art have yet to be revealed, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In case you missed it, check out Heather’s review of Ben Wheatley’s latest film:

http://dailydead.com/review-high-rise-effectively-proves-that-humanitys-greatest-threat-will-always-be-itself/

Synopsis: “High-rise stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Dr. Robert Laing, the newest resident of a luxurious apartment in a high-tech concrete skyscraper whose lofty location places him amongst the upper class. Laing quickly settles into high society life and meets the building’s eccentric tenants: Charlotte (Golden Globe® nominee Sienna Miller, American Sniper), his upstairs neighbor and bohemian single mother; Wilder (Luke Evans, Beauty and the Beast), a charismatic documentarian who lives with his pregnant wife Helen (Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”); and Mr. Royal (Academy Award® winner Jeremy Irons, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), the enigmatic architect who designed the building. Life seems like paradise to the solitude-seeking Laing. But as power outages become more frequent and building flaws emerge, particularly on the lower floors, the regimented social strata begins to crumble and the building becomes a battlefield in a literal class war.”

Superhero Adaptations You May Not Have Heard Of

10 June 2016 1:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Superheroes are everywhere these days – I don’t need to bring up Box Office Mojo to show you that the most popular movies of the last five years usually feature characters who’ve leapt from the pages of a comic book! Hell, even “Batman V Superman”, a movie which was universally panned by critics, still managed to make close to a billion dollars solely by virtue of having two of the most popular comic book characters in there! That’s insane, and it doesn’t extend to movies – we’ve got numerous TV shows (the CW alone has five shows based on comic books, and that’s just one channel), animated series, videogames, and of course, more weekly comic books than you could ever hope to read while maintaining a healthy adult life. You might be wondering why we suddenly have such an influx of superhero media, and the short answer is, »

With the summer movie season in full swing, fans are being inundated with big-budget blockbusters every weekend. This weekend is no different, with Universal and Legendary rolling out their epic video game adaptation Warcraft, which hasn't released any budget figures as of yet, but it most likely cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 million, perhaps more. If you've ever wondered where all that money actually goes, a new video has surfaced that breaks it all down for you.

Vanity Fair posted an intriguing video on YouTube that breaks down what every single person working on a $200 million movie would make. The video is formatted like an end credits scroll, showing the individual's title and salary. Take a look at the official video description below.

Production continues apace on Paramount’s Ghost in the Shell adaptation, with a new slew of set photos revealing Scarlett Johansson on the bustling streets of Hong Kong. There’s also a first look at Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones), who stars opposite Johansson’s cybernetic ninja as Batou. Have a gander at the pics above, via HK01 and Apple Daily.

South China Morning Post brings word that the live-action movie is currently shooting scenes across Pak Hoi Street in anticipation of its early 2017 release date, placing The Avengers star in the shoes of Major Motoko Kusanagi. Indeed, news of Johansson’s casting proved to be the cause of controversy earlier this year, with manga fans in particular accusing Rupert Sanders’ movie of whitewashing the cherished source material.

However that may be, Paramount is pushing full steam ahead with Ghost in the Shell, and it’s »
