Glenn Morshower’s credits include everything from 24 to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Transformers, and X-Men: First Class, and the recurring theme there is that he almost always plays a character with some sort of tie to the military. That takes nothing away from him as an actor, however, as he always does a great job, but it’s hard to escape the feeling that he’s been typecast as General Sam Lane in Supergirl.
There’s been talk for a while now of the character appearing in the series when it debuts this Fall, and this version of Lane is described as a powerful military lifer and an overprotective father to both Lucy Lane and her sister, Lois. His arrival in National City stirs up trouble for Supergirl when he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative.

We already knew 'General Sam Lane' would be joining the likes of 'Red Tornado' and 'Livewire' on Supergirl at some point this season, but now we know who'll play him. According to IGN, Glenn Morshower is set to portray the father of Lois and Lucy Lane in a recurring role. His inclusion comes hot on the heels of Jenna Dewan-Tatum's casting as his younger daughter on the CBS show. Supergirl's General Lane is described as a powerful military lifer and and an overprotective father to both Lucy Lane and her sister, Lois. His arrival in National City stirs up trouble for Supergirl when he enlists her in a dangerous government initiative. Morshower seems to be the perennial military man, having played similar roles in X-Men: First Class, Agents Of Shield, The Men Who Stare At Goats and in Michael Bay's first three Transformers movies. What do you think of Morshower's casting? »
One of the more surprising and lesser-known facts about Sam Mendes’ second film, Road to Perdition, is that it’s actually adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins. The plot follows Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks), an Irish mob enforcer as he goes on the run with his son Michael Jr. after Jr. witnesses a murder and their family is killed in an effort to cover up any witnesses. There’s many great things in this film that standout, such as Jude Law’s creepy performance as assassin Harlen Maguire, one of Paul Newman’s final and finest performances as mob boss John Rooney, and Hollywood got an early look at the talent of Daniel Craig as the unstable Connor Rooney. However, it’s the climax that remains the most memorable thing in it, featuring some of the most iconic work from »
Stonewall is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven.
As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, we see a rage begin to build. This emotion runs through Danny and the entire community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who »

How soon will it be before we see Olivia Munn facing off against Ronda Rousey on the big screen? Probably sometime in the very near future, if the latest X-Men: Apocalypse video is any indication. It was announced yesterday by director Bryan Singer that X-Men: Apocalypse has officially wrapped first unit shooting. And then shortly after, Olivia Munn released yet another behind-the-scenes video of her intense martial arts training. Why is she still doing this?
It appears the former talk show host-turned-actress is continuing to define and perfect her kick-ass kickboxing skills for future superhero movies. While it was thought that all the main actors had wrapped, perhaps she is being called in for some second unit shooting? Or she already knows that she is required to return for reshoots at some point in the future. Maybe, just maybe, she is going to keep perfecting the skills she learned on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, »

Hollywood must have a synced production cycle, because every year, once the first summer blockbuster wraps, they all seem to wrap at around the same time. Yesterday, Marvel co-president Louis D'Esposito announced that Captain America: Civil War had closed shop. Now comes word from director Bryan Singer that first unit production has also wrapped on his franchise sequel X-Men: Apocalypse. He even shared a photo from the last day of production on Instragm, along with three shots from the after party that include a few of his cast members.
2016 is going to be an explosive year for superhero cinema! Not only are we getting X-Men: Apocalypse, the film that will kick off next year's summer moviegoing season, we're also getting two spinoffs, with Deadpool arriving in February and Gambit debuting in October. That's not to mention Disney and Marvel have Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange lined-up for next year, »

The big release of the past week (at least internationally) was Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Normally I’d do the usual highly opinionated review, but seeing as we had one of those last week, I thought instead I’d focus in a bit more depth on the film’s defining problem.
Overall I wasn’t a massive fan of the movie. Ritchie’s action was incomprehensibly constructed and often relegated to the background, the repeated “but you missed this bit” twists quickly went from cute to aggravating and any moments of flair (the truck scene was pretty cool) were undercut by a pervading obviousness. But these are all just symptoms of a more all-encompassing problem.
As you’ll be at least acutely aware, The Man From U.N.C.L.E was originally a TV series made in the sixties. Now there’s an »

Director Bryan Singer has never been shy about sharing photos and videos from the sets of any of his movies, a tradition that has continued in X-Men: Apocalypse. Ever since principal photography began in late April, the filmmaker has been sharing a number of photos and videos, and today, his latest video shows off a bit of movie magic. As it turns out, the superhero movie is using the same set as Roland Emmerich's upcoming gay rights drama Stonewall, with Bryan Singer showing how part of that bar set was turned into Storm's (Alexandra Shipp) Cairo apartment. Take a look at the director's statement from his Instagram page earlier today.
"Shoutout to @rolandemmerich who is finishing #idr #id4 in #Albuquerque. Looking forward to seeing his film #stonewall as we took his remaining #bar set and made it our #storm #cairo #apartment #1983 #xmen #apocalypse #xmenapocalypse #cinema #magic #setlife"

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as the clawed mutant who has driven pretty much the entire X-Men franchise with the exception of X-Men: First Class. So far all we know is that the sequel will have some ties to the Old Man Logan comic book arc, and Patrick Stewart as Professor X […]
- Ethan Anderton
It was first rumored, and then later confirmed by the actor himself, that Patrick Stewart will be returning as Professor X, aka Charles Xavier, in 2017's Wolverine 3. Now, speaking with ScreenRant, Patrick Stewart teases that we may be seeing a Professor X who has been altered by the changing timelines set up in X-Men: Days of Future Past and is probably more influenced by James McAvoy's take on the character. The actor, who has played Charles Xavier in every X-Men movie to date except for X-Men: First Class, doesn't really know too much about this new take on Charles, but he finds himself intrigued by the possibilities.
We all know that Wolverine 3 will mark Hugh Jackman's last turn as the indestructible Mutant Logan, and he only beats Patrick Stewart by one movie in terms of appearances, being the only actor to appear in all 7 X-Men movies that have been released. »
The X-Men franchise still has plenty of life left in it, with X-Men: Apocalypse currently in production, set for release next summer. Fans will also be treated to two spinoffs, Deadpool and Gambit next year, with Wolverine 3 set for release in 2017. After that, though, many are wondering what direction 20th Century Fox will take the franchise, especially since Hugh Jackman has confirmed on numerous occasions that Wolverine 3 will mark his final time playing Logan on the big screen. Aside from Hugh Jackman starring and James Mangold directing, there isn't much else we know about the superhero sequel. Earlier today, Collider got to speak with Patrick Stewart, who confirmed that he will return as Professor Xavier in Wolverine 3.
"I think what you say is true. There is a project in development. I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me."

With production continuing on X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal, director Bryan Singer shared two photos from the set through his Instagram page. The first photo gives us a new look at Ben Hardy as Archangel, in what the director describes as some sort of a "fight club" in Berlin. While the second photo shows three superhero outfits in mysterious display cases, which the director says, "reminds me of Area 51." It isn't known which superhero outfits are locked away in these cases quite yet, but it's a nice tease.
The Ben Hardy Angel photo is reminiscent of concept art that debuted back in late March, which showed a large arena where combatants square off inside a massive cage. It is believed that this is where the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) finds Archangel and recruits him to be one of the Four Horsemen. The other Horsemen include Olivia Munn's Psylocke, Alexandra Shipp »
Director Bryan Singer is never one to shy away from using social media, posting numerous photos from the Montreal set of X-Men: Apocalypse ever since shooting began earlier this summer. Earlier this week, the director shared a photo of Storm (Alexandra Shipp) watching over Cairo, through the magic of visual effects and a process known as SimulCam. Today Bryan Singer has posted yet another photo, which unfortunately doesn't feature any cast members, but does tease some epic destruction and a massive X. Could Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) be responsible for all of this chaos? Or did Magneto create that massive iron X logo?
X-Men: Apocalypse follows Xavier (James McAvoy) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), who discover Apocalypse's plans for world destruction and put together a team of young mutants such as Jubilee (Lana Condor), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) to fight the ancient bad guy.

Roadside Attraction has unveiled the trailer for the upcoming "Stonewall" drama, starring Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Jonathan Rhys Meyers ("The Tudors"), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Joey King (White House Down), Calbe Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class) and Jonny Beauchamp ("Penny Dreadful). Check it out below. Plot: Centers on the fictional Danny Winters (Irvine), who is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent's home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven.

A feature film based on the popular (and creepy) Marble Hornets series, Always Watching brings the series and the eerie Slender Man into your DVD players, with a found footage-like tale revolving around a trio of reporters that get caught up in something way over their heads. »
