Benedict Cumberbatch wants director Scott Derrickson to return for Doctor Strange 2

24 February 2017 4:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel may be a little too busy to start thinking about Doctor Strange 2 just yet, but we’ll be seeing plenty of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange in Phase Three, with the Sorcerer Supreme set to appear in November’s Thor: Ragnarok, along with next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Nevertheless, given the box office success of the first movie, it’s inevitable that we will get a second sequel, and speaking to Cinema Blend, Cumberbatch has revealed that he hopes to see Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson back at the helm.

“Scott’s got, he’s very good on process, and he’s very good on visuals and he had to cram a lot in,” said Cumberbatch. “I mean this was a much harder shoot in many ways than I imagine some of the other origin stories had been. They’re all hard, not to detract from the »

Benedict Cumberbatch Has Only One Director In Mind For Doctor Strange 2

24 February 2017 5:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three years ago, Guardians of the Galaxy shouldered the burden of Marvel’s ‘big risk’, and after James Gunn’s spacefaring romp blew past all expectations, a similar pressure began looming over Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man solo movie the following year. Ditto for Doctor Strange, and it’s really a testimony to writer-director Scott Derrickson that the Sorcerer Supreme’s standalone flick was able to transition audiences to the more fantastical, mythical corners of the McU with relative ease.

A $673 million haul at the international box office was enough to warrant early chatter of a sequel, and though Derrickson himself has conceded that his busy schedule may force him to vacate the director’s chair – or, the very least, nudge Doctor Strange 2 onto the back-burner – Benedict Cumberbatch is adamant that Scott Derrickson is the only man for the job.

Chatting to Cinema Blend, the Sherlock actor highlighted Derrickson’s particular creative process, »

Mark Gatiss doesn’t know if we’ll see more Sherlock

24 February 2017 4:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to the premiere of Sherlock series four on New Year’s Day, there was a lot of talk that the latest season could be the final run of episodes for the beloved BBC drama.

Back in October, Benedict Cumberbatch indicated that the fourth series “might be the end of an era”, only for Steven Moffat to downplay his comments and offer a glimmer of hope to fans that we may get further episodes at some point in the future. Well, now co-creator Mark Gatiss has weighed in with his own thoughts, and it doesn’t sound like he’s overly optimistic about a series five:

“I honestly don’t know if there will be any more,” Gatiss tells The Sun. “It’s incredibly difficult to get Benedict and Martin’s diaries to align. And obviously we left it in a very happy place…if that’s the end I »

TV Imports: The Best Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Acquired Series You’re Not Watching

24 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In this era of “Peak TV” there doesn’t seem to be enough time to bother with drama and comedy imports. But while there are more than enough American shows to binge, it would be a mistake to bypass great foreign TV. After all, that would mean missing out on fan favorites like “Doctor Who,” “Orphan Black,” “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock.”

Foreign TV has spawned hit U.S. adaptations like “Homeland” and “The Office,” as well as pale imitations of the original. Remember the failed American versions of “The It Crowd” and “Coupling”? Yeah, we’d like to forget ’em as well.

Mondo’s Captain America: Civil War poster available now

23 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mondo has unveiled a rather nice poster for last year’s Marvel blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. Illustrated by Tyler Stout, poster is available now over on Mondo’s official site and comes in three versions: regular, priced at $65, a variant priced at $110, and a ‘Vibranium’ metal poster priced at $350; take a look here…

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. »

Sherlock Co-Creator Doesn’t Sound Too Keen On Season 5

Sherlock Season 4 Gallery 1 of 43

Though far from a bad show, Sherlock isn’t quite the all-star that it used to be. That was particularly evident in its recently concluded fourth season, which debuted in January and was far from its strongest outing. Still, that hasn’t stopped fans from calling for more and while BBC hasn’t made any formal announcements yet in regards to what they plan to do with the series, it certainly isn’t sounding too promising.

A major issue in putting Sherlock together recently has been the increasingly busy schedules of stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, who are becoming pretty popular in Hollywood. Besides their Marvel Cinematic Universe commitments, both actors are quite in demand and as they continue to get bigger, it’s going to be more and more difficult to get them to »

Kit Harington, Liv Tyler, Peter Mullan and Mark Gatiss join the BBC’s Guy Fawkes series Gunpowder

19 February 2017 3:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), Liv Tyler (The Leftovers), Peter Mullan (Top of the Lake) and Mark Gatiss (Sherlock) have signed on to star in the upcoming three-part historical thriller series Gunpowder from the BBC.

Scripted by Ronan Bennett (Top Boy), who devised the project with Harington and Daniel West, the series will explore the true story behind the 1605 Gunpowder Plot, where a group of English Catholics attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I in order to restore a Catholic to the throne. The plot was ultimately foiled when Guy Fawkes was captured guarding the explosives.

Harington is set to play Robert Catesby, the man responsible for devising the plan, and the driving force behind the plot (who also happens to be a direct ancestor of Harington in real life). Gatiss will portray King James’ spymaster-in-chief Robert Cecil, with Mullan as Jesuit Father Garnet »
