Just days after Stan Lee was quoted as stating that having Spider-Man, X-Men and The Fantastic Four as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was something that Marvel Studios “is very concerned about”, a flood of leaked emails from the Guardians of Peace hack into Sony arrived online, throwing up tonnes of details about the studio’s plans – or rather, lack of plans – for the wall-crawler. The biggest piece of news was the revelation that Marvel Studios tried unsuccessfully (for the time being, at least) to partner up with »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.
Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.
Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.
Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »
Batman Volume 5: Zero Year – Dark City continues writer Scott Snyder’s electrifying retread of the Dark Knight’s early years as a crime fighter in Gotham City. He finds himself going up against Edward Nygma, who calls himself the Riddler, and a disgraced bone researcher dubbed Doctor Death after a series of medical tragedies. The book collects Batman issues 25 through 27 and 29 through 33 of the monthly title.
The Riddler is holding the city ransom under a technological net that scrambles all electronic communications in and out of the great metropolitan. Our hero must find a way to thwart his bone-crushing minion Doctor Death along the way and shut down the Riddler’s hold on all of Gotham before it’s too late.

There are two upcoming movie musicals that, for a long time, I've wanted to make into motion pictures, should someone with money be willing to give me the funds to make them -- Into The Woods and The Last 5 Years. I'm both nervous and excited to see how directors Rob Marshall and Richard Lagravenese, respectfully, have interpreted the material I hold so close to my heart. I am especially nervous for Into The Woods, given Marshall's less than impressive track record. If someone is going to screw up something I cherish, it should be me. Of course, there are far more than two musicals I have a deep connection to. Some have already been made into films, like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Les Miserables, but there is a vast collection of musicals I have thought could make fantastic films, but have never been made. »

The recent "Guardians of the Galaxy" marked the debut of Josh Brolin as the Marvel Cinematic Universe super villain Thanos. It was our first look at the Mad Titan who will become a central antagonist in future films.
Speaking with The Guardian this week, Brolin discussed his joining of Marvel's Cinematic Universe and says the project appeared at just the right time:
"Right after No Country for Old Men, I got offered a big, big, big movie. It just didn't feel right to me. Then something like Marvel comes along. We did "Guardians of the Galaxy" and it felt perfect. I still feel great about that project... I like what it represents."
"The (career) trajectory. It's very difficult for me not »

Just a few days ago, Guardians of the Galaxy actor Vin Diesel teased fans (again) about The Inhumans, a film that’s been rumored to come down Marvel’s pipeline for quite some time. Now, it seems that the studio is finally moving forward with the project, which already has a script from Amber Lake scribe Joe Robert Cole. The next step is to take the script and find a filmmaker to bring the cosmic superhuman team to life.
For those unfamiliar with the characters, the Inhumans were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1975. Their history is filled with some confusing cosmic mumbo jumbo, but the basic idea is that they’re an advanced race of humans, who were genetically created by the Kree alien race millions of years ago. The Kree succeeded in creating a strain of humanity with extraordinary abilities, but abandoned their experiment due to »

Before we get into it, let me answer my own question: Yes. Yes it is.
(Major spoilers follow. For earlier recappage, check out our piece on the first two episodes.)
When word was first announced of Showtime’s period “psychosexual horror” series Penny Dreadful, no one was sure what to expect. The best guess was that it would be a handsomely-shot mashup of a handful of big-name genre icons… with copious close-ups of boobies. But I don’t think anyone expected the full-on monster mash that we have seen in the season’s first four episodes: Dr. Frankenstein is canoodling with Ludwig Van Helsing in an attempt to stop Dracula; Frankenstein’s Monster is playing Phantom of the Opera at the Grand Guignol Theatre, and the Wolf Man just banged Dorian Gray.
Yes, you read that right: at the end of last Sunday’s episode, Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) – an »

After last week’s news that Marvel Studios and Edgar Wright had parted ways on the long-gestating Ant-Man movie, it seems that Marvel has wasted little time in hunting out a successor to ensure that production on the Phase Three film remains on track ahead of its release next July. Despite rumours linking Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito (helmer of the Agent Carter One-Shot) to the gig, it seems that leading man Paul Rudd could be set to reunite with his Anchorman and Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay, who »

This is a pretty beautiful trailer for new animated movie, The Book Of Life. If you knew nothing about this (and its kinda crept under the radar) you’d certainly think there was some Guillermo Del Toro influences here. And you’d be right. With Del Toro producing, Jorge Gutierrez (Mad, The Adventures of Manny Rivera) is directing what looks to be a really magical adventure story. While it’s possibly a bit too abstract and spooky for the younger kids, older and bigger kids (like ourselves) may well lap this up. Released: October 17th USA / October 24th Ireland & UK Synopsis: From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez comes an animated comedy with a unique visual style. The Book Of Life is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, »
