Whedon will now oversee a handful of reshoots that had already been scheduled prior to Synder’s daughter’s death, as well as the post-production process.

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Joss Whedon, director of Marvel’s The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, it set to finish the film ahead of its November release date.

THR is reporting that Autumn committed suicide in March, and although the filmmaker was initially keen to return to work following a two-week break on the production, he and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have now decided to step away in order to deal with the immediate effects of the tragedy.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it,” said Snyder. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all consuming. »

Justice League: Zack Snyder Steps Down As Director, Joss Whedon To Take Over

15 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

According to a report from THR Zack Snyder is stepping down as director of Justice League during the post-production and reshoot phase of the film. Given all the verbal abuse Snyder gets online these days, it may be easy to think that Snyder stepped down over disagreements with Warner Bros. However, that is not at all the case. 

Snyder has stepped down to deal with a family tragedy. Back in March, the filmmaker’s daughter committed suicide, and Snyder has decided to take this time to focus on grieving and healing with his family.

“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was way through it. The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all consuming. And in the last two months I’ve come to the realization …I’ve decided to take »

Joss Whedon To Shepherd Justice League Over The Finish Line As Zack Snyder Steps Down To Deal With Personal Tragedy

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

The Hollywood Reporter brings word this evening that Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Batgirl) will shepherd Justice League through post-production now that Zack Snyder has stepped down in light of a family tragedy.

Snyder and his wife/creative partner Deborah Snyder – a producer on the DC ensemble film – are both taking a break from Warner’s shared universe following the sudden death of Zack’s daughter, Autumn Snyder, who took her own life at age 20 only two months ago. Per THR, it’s understood that her death had been kept relatively private up until now, and only close friends and family were aware of the situation.

The family tragedy resulted in a two-week delay for production on Justice League, and in a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Zack Snyder conceded that his knee-jerk reaction was to delve straight back into work in order to grapple with the crippling sense of grief. »

19 May 2017 4:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first image from the upcoming action comedy Why We’re Killing Gunther has arrived online, and features Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Gunther alongside his co-star, writer and director Taran Killam.

Why We’re Killing Gunther sees Arnold as the titular Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman, who comes under friendly fire when a group of international assassins decides that he’s too much of a braggart for his own good and that they’ll off him once and for all. As they pursue him, however, they find that Gunther’s “world’s greatest hitman” title is not an undeserved one and that the master assassin is ahead of them every step of the way.

Schwarzenegger and Killam are joined in the cast of Why We’re Killing Gunther by Cobie Smulders (The Avengers), Allison Tolman (Krampus), Hannah Simone (The New Girl) and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live). It is slated for release later this year. »

Batman & Robin’s Alicia Silverstone Is “Open” To Cameo In Batgirl Movie

18 May 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few movies are as reviled as 1997’s Batman & Robin. A camp, cheesy, toyetic mess, it single-handedly destroyed the Batman film franchise (well, until Christopher Nolan saved it with Batman Begins in 2005, anyway), Not to mention the fact that it was also poorly cast – apart from a wooden George Clooney in the lead role, teen movie favorite Alicia Silverstone was not the right choice for Barbara Gordon/Batgirl.

In a recent interview with USA Today, the Clueless star discussed her casting as the hero and noted that she would be a lot better in the part if she ever got the chance to play it again.

“I feel like I could do a much better Batgirl now than I did then. It would be fun to tackle it again… Because I’m older and my acting is better. I know I would bring so much more to it. I was just a baby. »

Kevin Feige wants the X-Men and Fantastic Four back at Marvel

18 May 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios has made a great number of strides in reacquiring characters previously licensed to other studios, with the rights to the likes of Daredevil, Blade, The Punisher, Namor the Sub-Mariner and Ghost Rider all reverting back to Marvel’s ownership, and a deal struck with Sony to bring Spider-Man into the McU fold.

There are however two gaping omissions preventing Marvel Studios from replicating its comic book universe on the big screen, with 20th Century Fox still holding on to the rights to X-Men and Fantastic Four. And while Marvel chief Kevin Feige has previously ruled out a similar deal to Spider-Man between Marvel and Fox, his “grand plan” is to eventually see every Marvel character back home.

“Yes of course,” Feige told Perception (via Screen Rant) when asked if he’d like to see the X-Men alongside The Avengers. “My goal is to replicate the experience that, you know, »

Kevin Feige On The X-Men Joining The McU: “Never Say Never”

18 May 2017 7:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a recent interview with Perception – the company responsible for Marvel Studio’s iconic logos, Kevin Feige got into the subject of Marvel characters and their ownership by different studios.

As fans will know all too well, this is a discussion that’s dogged the architects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since it burst into life with Iron Man in 2008. Audiences are often frustrated at the restrictions imposed upon Marvel comic book adaptations, resulting from character rights and titles. For Feige, however, the issue is one that might have a solution – but, beyond the new move to include Spider-Man in the franchise, it won’t be evident any time soon.

“My goal is to replicate the experience that comic book fans have reading the books up on the screen and we’ve been able to accomplish that beyond my wildest dreams over the last ten years. And certainly, including Spidey in Civil War, »

Iron Man: is his time up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

16 May 2017 3:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard May 22, 2017

As rumours persist that Iron Man could bow out in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers films, we take a look at his arc in the McU.

This article contains spoilers for the Iron Man and Avengers films, as well as Captain America: Civil War and Guardians Of The Galaxy 2.

If Marvel want Robert Downey Jr to return to the McU after Avengers 4, they’ll have some serious negotiating to do. The man’s contract will be up at that point, and he’ll be free to move on to other things, which also leaves the studio in a position to write the character off.

"I can't imagine how they could but that doesn’t mean that they can't,” original Iron Man director Jon Favreau admitted to IGN last year. “I just can't wrap my head around that one. To me he's the one element that has unified all of it, »

The Tinkerer Revealed in Spider-Man: Homecoming

15 May 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It feels like we have been talking about it for a very long time, but Spider-Man: Homecoming is just a couple of short months away from release. We will finally be seeing what a solo Spidey adventure within the confines of the Marvel Cinematic Universe looks like, and the movie is going to include more than one classic Spider-Man bad guy. Now, we have our very first look at The Tinkerer, who is being played by Orange is the New Black star Michael Chernus.

The image comes courtesy of Empire Magazine, who included it in their latest issue. In the photo, we see The Tinkerer doing what he does best, standing at a workbench tinkering with stuff. Michael Keaton is also in the picture, meaning we also get a brand new look at Adrian Toomes, aka Vulture. Though, it looks like he is just getting things together and isn't quite »

Powers Boothe, Star of Tombstone, Deadwood Dies at 68

15 May 2017 9:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again after another beloved performer was lost this weekend. Powers Boothe, an Emmy-winning character actor with several diverse roles to his credit, passed away at the age of 68 on Sunday. The actor's death was first announced online in a tweet from actor Beau Bridges, and was later confirmed by his rep, Karen Samfilippo. The rep confirmed that he died in his sleep from apparent natural causes.

The Entertainment Weekly report doesn't reveal if there will be an autopsy performed or not. The actor was born June 1, 1948 in Snyder, Texas, USA, the son of a sharecropper who spent his youth chopping cotton and became the first member of his family to attend a university, receiving a fellowship to Southern Methodist University to study acting, where he received a degree in Fine Arts. After performing in Oregon, Connecticut and Philadelphia, the actor arrived in New »

Here’s Which Marvel Villain James Gunn Would Use In Guardians Of The Galaxy If He Had The Rights

15 May 2017 8:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The issue of character rights is surely the greatest obstacle to a truly complete Marvel film franchise. While the comic books depict a vast realm in which beloved and iconic characters can interact and battle, their screen adaptation counterparts are restricted to particular studios. Thus, we have Marvel movies from 20th Century Fox – such as the Fantastic Four films and the X-Men franchise – and we have the Marvel Cinematic Universe from Disney. While rights deals have been reached before – most notably with Sony for the inclusion of Spider-Man in the McU – many characters remain out of Disney’s reach, which can be frustrating for filmmakers such as James Gunn.

A recent Facebook Live question-and-answer session with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director saw him questioned as to which character he would have liked to use, were rights not an issue. Here’s what he had to say:
