Unused, comics-accurate Apocalypse costume design for X-Men: Apocalypse revealed

3 May 2016 2:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new interview that Tested did with Ironhead Studios (the company behind costumes for big-budget films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Hunger Games and even classics like Batman Returns and yes, the infamous Batman & Robin Batnipples), at Monsterpalooza this weekend has revealed an unused costume design for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse that will make diehard fans of the titular baddie very, very happy (or sad, considering it ultimately wasn’t the final version).

Jose Fernandez, the head of Ironhead, spoke briefly about his design for Apocalypse, which went unused because he ultimately didn’t land the gig of making the costumes for the film. Still, his interest in the property and his desire to see a more comics-inspired interpretation of the ancient mutant (along with a body cast he happened to have of Apocalypse actor Oscar Isaac) prompted him »

Captain America: Civil War Review #2: Marvel's Greatest Action Film Yet

3 May 2016 7:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain America: Civil War is the first superhero film to skillfully depict the consequences of collateral damage. We got a hackneyed attempt to address this issue in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Where that utterly failed, Civil War succeeds in a dark and thoughtful way. It tears the Avengers apart, turning the most stalwart allies into bitter enemies. Directors Anthony and Joe Russo have crafted a mind-blowing action film with a deep, personal connection. It is not flawless, suffering from the bloat of cramming in multiple storylines. It seems each of these films has to set-up a dozen others down the road. I wish they had scaled back a bit here, because they could have had a comic masterpiece. This review is spoiler free except for one declaration, which will have fan boys beaming from ear to ear. Spider-Man has Never been this good on film. Tom Holland, you're about to be a mega-star. »

Defending The Amazing Spider-Man

28 April 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the wall-crawler prepares to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, Henry Bevan defends 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man

A child is trapped in a car that is hanging off a bridge. The hero swings down, takes off his mask and reassures the trapped child that everything is going to be alright. The web holding the car snaps and our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man webs the boy free, saving him for the world to see. In a lesser superhero film, pursuing the villain would have been the main objective, but Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man slows things down and shows our hero being a hero. From this scene alone, it is easy to say that Tasm is a misunderstood movie.

Sandwiched between The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, it was unfairly seen as a cynical superhero snack, the quick fix between Marvel’s bold experiment »

Robert Downey Jr. Returns as Iron Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming

21 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Robert Downey Jr. is joinging Spider-Man: Homecoming. When the new trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted last month, it gave us our first look at Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man, who will go on to star in Marvel and Sony's reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming. The trailer featured Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man calling out for the web-slinger, who steals Captain America's shield before swooping in to introduce himself. Today we have a new report which confirms the old rumors that Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his Iron Man role in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The news isn't terribly surprising, since footage from Captain America: Civil War shown at CinemaCon last week featured Peter Parker (Tom Holland) coming home to find Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in his living room with Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). When the new Spidey role was being cast, Tom Holland »

Rumour: The Vulture to appear in Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming

13 April 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get your pinch of salt at the ready, as Birth.Movies.Death has popped up with a rumour about a possible villain for Sony and Marvel’s 2017 Spider-Man reboot, which is now officially going by the title of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

According to the site, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man will face off against Adrian Toomes, a.k.a. The Vulture, although it’s unknown whether the winged villain will be the main antagonist or a supporting character.

The Vulture is one of Spider-Man’s oldest villains, having appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #2 way back in 1963. The character is yet to make an appearance in live-action, although Sam Raimi did plan to include him in the ultimately-aborted Spider-Man 4, casting John Malkovich in the role.

How Hollywood got the PG-13 bug

13 April 2016 5:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Indirectly spawned by Steven Spielberg, PG-13 is now the rating of choice among movie studios. Ryan charts the effects of its rise and rise.

Even compared to the exploding heads and melting faces of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, The Temple Of Doom was an intense, gruesome affair. The Indiana Jones prequel may have begun with a breezy song-and-dance number, but it soon descended into a dark ghost train ride of human sacrifice, death by crocodiles, child slavery and chilled monkey brains for dinner.

One of the film’s most famous scenes saw a victim’s heart torn out and held, still pumping and oozing blood, before his gazing eyes. Some kids in the audience were probably cackling with macabre glee at all this. Parents and critics were far less amused. One reviewer even suggested that taking a child to see The Temple Of Doom was tantamount to wilful neglect. »
