Ghost in the Shell Lands Wolverine Star Rila Fukushima

25 May 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have been clamoring for a live action adaptation of the manga series Ghost in the Shell for a very long time, and they are finally getting it next year. Though the producers of the film have come under fire for some of their casting choices, they are making a step in what seems to be the right direction. Rila Fukushima, who starred alongside Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, has been added to the cast of the film.

The casting news comes from THR, though the report wasn't able to confirm who she will be playing. Scarlett Johansson is playing the character Kusanagi in the film, which is a casting choice that had many people very upset, as the character is supposed to be Asian. Paramount came under heavy fire for the choice and was accused of whitewashing. Things only got worse when it was reported that the studio had »

Rumour: Wolverine 3 villains reportedly revealed

25 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming on Wolverine 3 getting underway, Nerdist has posted a report which claims to reveal details of the villains that Hugh Jackman’s Logan will be squaring off against in his X-Men swansong.

According to the report, Boyd Holbrook’s as-yet-unrevealed villain will be an original character, described as the “intense head of security for a global enterprise”. However, the site also goes on to claim that the film will feature The Reavers, who in the comic books are a team of criminal cyborgs who are dedicated to the destruction of the X-Men, and in particular the adamantium-clawed Wolverine.

Meanwhile, Coming Soon is also claiming that Weapon X will play a significant role as the primary antagonists, and speculates that they could be working with the Reavers “in an effort to stop or capture Wolverine as well as the young clone of him, X-23, who will also be along for the film’s road trip. »

The Preview Reel: Mutants Over Wonderland

25 May 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to the fourth week of CinemaNerdz’s “Preview Reel” where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. Memorial Day weekend is one of the biggest movie weekends of the summer, and this year features two franchise-tent pole films. There’s the next installment in the long-lasting X-Men franchise with X-Men: Apocalypse, and the follow-up to the 2010 smash hit Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass. Both films feature large price tags and look to cash-in on the four day holiday weekend, lets break them down to see if either of them are worth your time.

  X-Men: Apocalypse

What we are excited about:

The X-Men film franchise has been one of Hollywood’s longest running franchises, and the series has arguably never been better. First Class, The Wolverine, Days of Future Past, and this year’s Deadpool are among the best of the franchise, »

Will Old Man Logan Square Off With The Reavers In The Wolverine 3?

24 May 2016 8:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wolverine 3 has been making a lot of very interesting casting additions lately, but no details have been revealed about who the various actors will be playing, something which leaves us completely in the dark about what to expect from the James Mangold helmed release when it reaches theaters next year.

However, a new report may shed at least some light on what we should expect when Old Man Logan teams up with Patrick Stewart’s Professor X. According to Nerdist, The Wolverine 3 is going to feature the clawed mutant squaring off with the Reavers, a group of cyborgs (including the likes of Lady Deathstrike and Skullbuster) best known for their criminal activity and hatred of mutants.

Are These the Villains in Wolverine 3?

24 May 2016 6:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For going on two decades now, Hugh Jackman has been one of the most beloved actors to ever bring a superhero to life in the form of Wolverine in the X-Men franchise. However, all good things must come to an end and that end is nearly upon us as production has started on Wolverine 3, which will be Jackman's last go around as Logan. Though we don't know a ton about the film yet, we may finally know who the bad guys will be in the upcoming X-Men spinoff.

A new report from Nerdist claims to have confirmation from "a source close to the production" as to who the villains will be. It looks like Wolverine will once again be fighting big, bad robots in the form of Reavers. In the comics at least, Reavers were a group of criminal cyborgs who were bent on destroying the mutant X-Men, and they »

X-Men: The real Apocalypse is its continuity!

24 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black attempts to make sense of the continuity of the X-Men franchise…

Have you ever attempted to make sense of the X-Men movie continuity? As in pick apart the entire timeline of events across the eight, soon to be nine films in the franchise? Of course not, you all have lives. You have friends and family and loved ones, and probably spend time with them. I, on the other hand, give a worrying amount of time over in my brain space to consider these things, and recent conversation with my good friend Lee Chrimes, ostensibly about the merits (or lack thereof) of the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, led to a very deep exploration of X-Men chronology which drove us toward one inescapable conclusion: the writers have no idea, and are probably hoping we’re past the point of worrying about it. Well I have news for you, Simon Kinberg – this matters. »

While people may obsess over the long-running feuds between Batman and Superman, or Captain America and Iron Man, the real battle is between the studios that oversee those names: DC and Marvel.

With the two companies releasing their tentpole blockbusters within a month of each other, the behind-the-scenes rivalry transitioned into the multiplex with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War – and thanks to a very observant listener to the Flickering Myth Podcast, we might have uncovered a secret joke from Marvel at DC’s expense.

This is an extract from the mailbag section of Flickering Myth Podcast #26 (18th May, 2016). Kudos to listener Tim Walden for bringing it up.
