Not much is known about Alex Kurtzman’s Venom film for Sony, apart from the fact that it will feature the famous Spider-Man villain in an anti-hero role. Kurtzman recently talked about how the character provides a darker entry point into the Spidey franchise, as “there are certain lines that Spider-Man won’t cross… Venom, in a weird way, is the representation of every line that will get crossed.” While some characters provide straight-forward adaptation possibilities, Venom is a bit of a different story, because there have been a handful of different versions over the years.
The Venom symbiote has been worn by several characters in Spider-Man lore throughout the years and in various forms of media, the most notable of which are Peter Parker, Eddie Brock, Mac Gargan a.k.a. The Scorpion, Flash Thompson, and Harry Osborn.
Making Eddie Brock the Venom of choice is perhaps the safest bet, »

Sony is trying to differentiate itself in the shared superhero universe game by leaving its flagship superhero (Spider-Man) alone for a bit, in favor of exploring the darker side of things via two villain-centric movies, Venom and Sinister Six.
While everyone is curious as to how a blockbuster villain team-up film is going to play with audiences, the character of Venom actually got a live-action movie adaption in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 - to almost universal disappointment amongst fans. That being the case, the Venom movie is under a ton of scrutiny, as fans wait to see how director Alex Kurtzman (co-screenwriter of Star Trek Into Darkness) and writer Ed Solomon (Now You See Me, Men in Black) are ...

When Ben Affleck was announced as playing The Dark Knight in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Internet virtually exploded, with opinions ranging from those who felt that it’s the worst thing to happen to the character since bat nipples, to those who simply said that Affleck was “the bomb in Phantoms.”
In an interview with the Sunday Times here in the UK, Affleck talked about donning the cowl in the hope that it could help him develop some of his smaller independent movies, “I hope it’s true,” the actor said with half a smile. “You’re always thinking about the momentum you’re trying to build in your career. There are dual thought processes – on the one hand, you’re going, ‘What’s interesting to me?’ On the other hand, you’re thinking, ‘How do I give myself the opportunity to do those things? »

Earlier in the week Zack Snyder gave us our first official look at the Batmobile from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while yesterday brought a crazy – and untrue – rumour suggesting that someone had stolen the Dark Knight’s ride from the Detroit set of the DC ensemble. Well, Snyder has now had some fun with those rumours, posting another Batman v Superman / Star Wars mash-up image showing Gotham Police arresting a Stormtrooper for the theft with the caption “Case Closed”. Check it out…

The Flickering Myth writing team discuss the new Batmobile…
After a few photos of the Batmobile for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online, a rather perturbed Zack Snyder took to Twitter and revealed the first official photo of the Batmobile in all of its glory. It seems to have split opinion among the Internet, but what did our writers make of it?
Be sure to also check our evolution of the Batmobile.
Tom Jolliffe: It’s design gone mad. There’s too much going on and ultimately it looks like it would be ten times worse to drive than the Nolan Batmobile. Bats would be better off in a Nissan Micra with a bit of bullet proof glass fitted.
Tom Roach: I really like the new look. I’m very happy that the new version of the Batmobile has very little resemblence to the tumbler in the Dark Knight Trilogy. »

It’s been well over a year since Now You See Me accumulated more than $350 million at the worldwide box office, but things are finally coming together for the sequel. Lionsgate just gave Now You See Me 2 a June 10, 2016 release date, and while talking to Mark Ruffalo at the Toronto International Film Festival, he confirmed that "everyone's in." The original centered on Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco's The Four Horsemen, but considering how that film wrapped up, Ruffalo's role is bound to take an interesting turn in the sequel. Hit the jump for more on Now You See Me 2. First off, who thought Now You See Me would turn out to be such a big hit? Ruffalo certainly didn’t: “I had no idea. Not to the level that it did. I just didn’t have any idea. When I was making it, »

With the announcement of a new Batmobile via some leaked photos and then Zack Synder’s Twitter account, we at Flickering Myth decided to look at the various incarnations of the The Dark Knight’s most iconic of accessories….
The Batmobile first debuted in DC Comics’ Batman #27, a red convertible with nothing overly special in its functionality. But in an interesting piece of trivia, the term “Batmobile” was not used until Detective Comics #48 in 1941.
Moving into the live action realm on our list is one of the most well-loved looks for people of “a certain age” of the Batmobile, courtesy of the 1966 Batman TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward as the dynamic duo. With great gadgets like an anti-theft switch, Bat Beam, Mobile Batcomputer and the Emergency Bat-turn lever, this version of the Batmobile is well respected and has been used by many as their transport on their wedding days. »

Zack Snyder must not have been very happy about those leaked set photos showing off the new Batmobile that Ben Affleck uses in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, because he’s taken it upon himself to give us the best image of the new iteration of the iconic vehicle yet. He took to Twitter late Wednesday night and posted the image below, saying, “Here’s a real picture of the Batmobile.” Take a look…
As you can see, this may very well be the best version of the Batmobile we’ve seen on screen yet. It looks incredibly badass, and could easily give Christopher Nolan’s Tumbler a run for its money. Now we just have one question… Can it withstand a blow from Superman?

Lionsgate has announced that the Now You See Me sequel is set for a June 10th, 2016 release. As well as a release date they announced that cast members Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine will all be reprising their roles. John M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) has also been confirmed as the director, replacing original director Louis Leterrier.
Now You See Me was released in the summer of 2013 and made over $350 million at the global box office. With a successful intake at the box office and a great cast there is no surprise that the film has earned a sequel. Now You See Me 2 has a lot of competition for the summer of 2016 though, as well as sharing a release date with Sony’s upcoming adaptation of the video game Uncharted.

The sequel to the heist thriller will be directed by Jon M Chu (GI Joe: Retaliation), who replaces Louis Leterrier.
Now You See Me earned more than $350 million (£217m) worldwide following its release in May 2013. It was made on a budget of $75m (£46m).
Lionsgate is already home to such popular young adult book-turned movie franchises as The Hunger Games and Divergent, and the studio is aiming to relaunch the Power Rangers brand on the big screen in 2016. Meanwhile, the studio is planning to turn the film Now You See Me – an original property that grossed $352 million on a $75 million budget last year – into another lucrative brand, having just set a 2016 release date for the sequel, Now You See Me 2 (which looks to be the official title after all).

The former has been set for June 10th, 2016. It’s a follow-up to last year’s surprise smash hit Now You See Me, which opened to an unexpectedly mighty $29.4 million domestic debut and went on to gross a stellar $351.7 million worldwide.
The sequel is expected to continue the story of The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), skilled magicians who perform heists, now that the enigmatic Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) has inducted them into a secret society of magicians known as the Eye. Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is sitting in the director’s chair, taking over from Louis Leterrier.
Now You See Me 2, as it’s currently known, is only currently facing down video game adaptation Uncharted on that date. »

We’ve received confirmation from Lionsgate overnight that they have finally set a release date for the sequel to the massive hit movie Now You See Me. The film, which will see the return of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman, will hit Stateside cinemas on the 10th June, 2016. John M. Chu, who directed that awful Justin Bieber movie and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will take over helming duties from Louis Letterier, who brought the first film to cinemas.
From the same press release, Lionsgate has also set a date for Dirty Grandpa, a new movie starring Zac Efron opposite Robert De Niro, for a release on December 25th of 2015. The film revolves around an uptight guy who is tricked into driving his foul-mouthed grandfather, a former Army general, to Florida for spring break, just a few days before his wedding. Dan Mazer, »

Jon M Chu is set to direct the sequel to Now You See Me, which will now be arriving in 2016.
It's running a little bit later than originally planned, but Lionsgate is pressing ahead with its plan for a sequel to surprise hit Now You See Me.
The 2013 release bagged itself over $350m at the worldwide box office off a relatively modest budget, and the sequel will reunite the team of four illusionists - played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher - for a new adventure. Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman are all expected back too.
Louis Letterier isn't returning to direct, with Jon M Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) instead taking over helming duties. And Lionsgate has now confirmed that Now You See Me 2 has a release date of June 10th 2016, which puts it head to head with »
The sequel to the sleeper hit “Now You See Me” will hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Lionsgate's Summit Entertainment said Tuesday. The studio also set its spring break comedy starring Zac Efron and Robert De Niro – tentatively titled “Dirty Grandpa” — for Christmas Day on 2015.

Now You See Me 2 will go up against Sony's Uncharted on June 10, 2016. We reported in June that Jon M. Chu is the front runner to direct the sequel, since we revealed last August that Now You See Me filmmaker Louis Leterrier isn't coming back to direct. Jon M. Chu has now been confirmed to direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with the main Now You See Me cast members Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco and Mark Ruffalo expected to return. The original Now You See Me earned $351 million worldwide from a $75 million budget.
