Marvel Studios has not yet found the actor that they want to play Spider-Man, but reports suggest it's now a two horse raise between Asa Butterfield and Tom Holand to become the new Peter Parker. That being said, should the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever be interested in crafting a live-action Miles Morales, one actor they may want to consider for the part is Tyler James Williams - who evidently would totally be down for the role. Flicks and the City caught up with the Walking Dead actor at the McM London Comic Con, and it was while discussing the current state of comic book movies that the subject of him potentially playing a big screen version of Miles Morales came up. Talking about whether or not he would be interested in the opportunity, Williams explained, I kind of followed the Miles Morales character quite a bit... And I'm open to »
Back in October, we reported that After Earth star Jaden Smith was rumored for the title role of DC’s upcoming Static Shock live-action digital series. Now, that report seems to have been confirmed, thanks to The Walking Dead and Dear White People‘s Tyler James Williams.
Williams was recently interviewed at McM Comic Con (via Flicks and the City), and was asked about any interest he might have in starring in a comic book adaptation. When he lamented that there “aren’t a lot of young, black superheroes,” someone in the crowd shouted out, “Static Shock! Spider-Man!” His response?
“I don’t know… [coyly] what you’re talking about. But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock happening with Jaden.”
Now, this is far from official confirmation, but it is a sign that Jaden is at least circling the role. We have yet to hear more news about the Static Shock series, »

Last Fall, Arrow returned for a third season on The CW and was joined by The Flash (a show which would quickly break the network's ratings records). Meanwhile, DC also debuted Constantine, a series which seemingly lasted only thirteen episodes thanks to a lack of promotion and the terrible time slot given to it by NBC. That may not have had much luck, but Batman prequel Gotham certainly has as it will return this Fall for a second season. On the Marvel front, they brought back Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. despite the fall in ratings throughout the first season, while Agent Carter would fill the void left by the series during its midseason break. A few months later, they unleashed their most successful series yet in the form of Daredevil on Netflix. Meanwhile, AMC continued to dominate cable with a fifth season of The Walking Dead. That's quite the list of »
We’ll soon be seeing a lot more of Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the Mad Titan takes centre stage for Avengers: Infinity War, but in the meantime we’ve had to make do with his post-credits scenes in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as a brief appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy.
While we await his next appearance (Thor: Ragnarok?), the folks at Luma Pictures have posted a featurette which delves into the VFX work that went into bringing Thanos to life for Guardians of the Galaxy, and you can check it out here (via ComicBook)…
“Loic Zimmermann our concept designer took the most prevalent features of Josh Brolin that we thought would stand out the most and put them into who the character is underneath,” Luma Pictures VFX supervisor Vincent Cirelli tells FX Guide. “He began blending those elements. We’ve taken Josh’s eyes, »

As mentioned in my last article – crowd funding can be tough, but if you follow some simple ideas and build a solid platform for your campaign you can achieve success. One other simple way of reaching audiences far and wide is…. Star Power!
In the modern age, no celebrity has a private life and no personal information is sacred. We’ve recently had Kourtney Kardashian pose naked whilst up the duff, Joey Barton gives his pointless opinion on anything football and Ricky Gervais has recently used his social media following to campaign against trophy hunting! Social media has brought all of this pointless news to every laptop, tablet and mobile phone in the modern world. So… why not take advantage of that?
As I’ve said before: when running a crowd funding campaign – audience is key! Who are they? What websites do they use? Who do they follow on social media? »

Over almost 10 years Mad Men has quietly become one of the top TV dramas. The period details, understated acting and high-end writing have helped it carve out a place among HBO behemoths The Sopranos and The Wire, as well as AMC stablemate Breaking Bad as some of the finest television of all time. It may not be able to compete with The Walking Dead for viewing figures but it has consistently earned critical acclaim and its audience is just as loyal.
By the time the finale rolled into view last Sunday there were a number of questions on viewers lips: is that really the end for Betty? What next for Don? Will we see Peggy again? All of these questions were answered and then some in one of the most satisfying conclusions to a TV drama in recent memory.
And yet, it’s not really the end for these characters, »

As we are assuredly living in the golden age of superhero TV, it was a clean jab to the jaw to watch the trailer for the forthcoming CBS Supergirl show. In only six and one-half minutes, my optimism – once high and mighty – was sucker-punched and left waning in the gutter.
Flash and Arrow are running at a breakneck pace, unyielding in showcasing how comic book shows can be both inspiring and hopeful, as well as dark and gritty whilst still being network-appropriate. Gotham, while no means as good as its CW counterparts, had flashes of brilliance in between the scenery chewing and trope-filled set-pieces. Agents of Shield and Agent Carter both delivered period-appropriate ass-kickery, and more than one jaw-dropping moment. And while I’m not much on the whole zombie thing, iZombie and Walking Dead have both popped up in my Facebook feed as being well-produced and good fun for the fans. »

“Rooker plays Bud Melks, the head of maintenance in the Belko building. He’s not a racist thug like Merle in The Walking Dead, and he doesn’t have a flying arrow like Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy – in fact, he’s a pretty nice guy – so he’s ill-equipped to deal with the mysterious forces who start making all of the employees in Belko start killing each other unless they want to be killed themselves,” states Gunn on Facebook.
The Belko Experiment has been scripted by Gunn and will be directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), with Rooker joining a cast that so far includes John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom), John C. McGinley (Scrubs), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) and Melonie Diaz »

All this week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been posting to Facebook casting announcements for his upcoming action horror thriller The Belko Experiment. Gunn writes and produces the feature, which is set to be directed by Wolf Creek‘s Greg McLean. The latest announcements include longtime Gunn collaborator and Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker and Scrubs and Office Space‘s John…

Rooker played Yondu Udonta in Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Gunn noted in the announcement Friday on his Facebook page. He has also revealed castings this week of “Scrubs” alum John C. McGinley, “Fruitvale Station’s” Melonie Diaz, “The Newsroom” star John Gallagher Jr. and “Scandal” president Tony Goldwyn.
“We’ve done three movies, two reality shows, a video game and a Web series together, been on a bromantic trip to Paris with just the two of us, and spent many nights as the last two maniacs at a party, so did you ever think there was any possibility that my pal Michael Rooker would not be cast in our horror/action/thriller ‘The Belko Experiment,’ especially when it’s been comprised of such overwhelming talent? Of course not.”

The youtube channel The Hillywood Show has made a name for itself by recontextualising popular songs to double as homages to well-known tv shows, with costumes and sets to match, along with dances. They have previously done parodies of Doctor Who and The Walking Dead, repurposing “The Time Warp” and “Another One bites the Dust” respectively.
For their latest video, the duo behind the channel took on the CW series Supernatural, setting the storyline of the show’s just-ended tenth season to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. In addition to getting a Chevy Impala much like the one driven in the series, the show tapped Osric Chau, who played Kevin Tran on the series and has appeared on previous Hillywood Show videos, to play Sam Winchester. In addition, the video managed to snag Rob Benedict, who played Chuck Shurley on Supernatural, to take on the role of Cain, with »

If you’ve played the first two episodes of Life is Strange you’ll already know that it wears its geek crown proudly, to hipster levels of whimsy. Now that the third episode Chaos Theory has been released we have hit the episode where the game has revealed its ace card and truly become something special, to mind-blowing proportions.
It is hard not to spoil the plot to the previous episode, and this one by mentioning too much but by giving just the basic plot that should be safe enough. Previously we’ve learnt of Max’s ability to rewind time and that she has returned to her home town of Arcadia Bay reconnecting with her childhood friend Chloe in a bid to discover what has happened to a missing girl.
In Chaos Theory the episode takes us into the recognisable trend of being an investigation episode bombarding us with »

Fans of director George A. Romero’s zombie movies may have thought the franchise was truly dead and buried. Well in a surprise development it seems the Master of Horror is about to take the likes of The Walking Dead to task, as Demarest Films announce Empire Of The Dead.
Adapted for TV from the Marvel comic book, the scenario throws an extra monster-shaped treat into the mix, via the introduction of vampires. With humanity sealed inside a post-zompocalypse New York, it was only a matter of time before the rotters (quite literally!) got in, and once the bloodsuckers get wind their food supply is under threat… all hell breaks loose!
Romero’s cinematic saga of the undead notoriously commenced with Night Of The Living Dead in 1968. It’s spawned seven films to date, the most recent of which was the poorly-received, Irish-infused Survival Of The Dead in 2009. He’ll »

We’re undoubtedly in the golden age of the comic book TV show, with everything from The Walking Dead to Daredevil - via The Flash, Lucifer, Powers and many more – now making the leap from the page to the screen.
The latest comic to be announced for small screen treatment is an interesting one to choose – George A. Romero’s Empire Of The Dead. The 15-issue run was entirely written by horror icon Romero, with illustrations by Alex Maleev, Dalibor Talajic and Andrea Mutti.
The comic – published by Marvel Comics – only came out last year, but Demarest Films (Tusk, A Most Wanted Man) have been quick to pick up the rights. Romero is believed to be writing the television version, with help from Peter Grunwald (a producer of Romero’s Land Of The Dead, »

The proposed Major Crimes spinoff centered around the S.O.B. (Special Operations Bureau) tactical unit and starring Jon Tenney and Walking Dead alum Laurie Holden (who has since joined NBC’s Chicago Med) is not moving forward, Turner Entertainment Networks CEO Kevin Reilly tells TVLine.
While lauding Major Crimes — which is itself of course an offshoot of the Kyra Sedgwick-fronted The Closer — as “such a valuable show for us,” Reilly said of S.O.B., “We’re not doing that. We’ve moved on. »
The Magnificent Seven: Peter Sarsgaard, who has played nasty, brutish characters in the past (Lovelace, above), is in final negotiations to take on a villainous role in The Magnificent Seven. He would join Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio, Haley Bennett, Luke Grimes, and Matt Bomwer; Antoine Fuqua is set to direct. Meanwhile, Jason Momoa has reportedly dropped out of the project. [Variety/Deadline] Transformers: Writer/producer Akiva Goldman, who was recently charged with developing sequels and spinoffs for the Transformers cinematic universe, has tapped key creative talents to join his so-called "writer's room." To begin with, that includes Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway...

The most recent Transformers movie made more than $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office last summer, in spite of harsh reviews.
George A. Romero's 15-issue, limited comic book series, Empire of the Dead, is being developed for TV according to Variety. Published in 2014, it is Romero's second comic book after a 2004 collaboration with DC Comics. Split into three, 5-issue Acts, the third act will conclude the story this August. Romero will team with Peter Grunwald to executive producer and write the series. Demarest's Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson will also serve as executive producers. Empire of the Dead is an in-continuity continuation of Romero's zombie film franchise and follows the remnants of humanity emerging from the tail-end of the zombie plague only to now be confronted by vampires. A few years back, Romero famously called The Walking Dead "a soap opera with a zombie occasionally." If you're of a similar sentiment, perhaps you'll be eagerly awaiting to see what Romero produces?
