Why are Marvel's women all such buzzkills?

23 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"You just wanna suck the joy out of everything," Rocket Raccoon complains to Gamora early in Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket's certainly not being presented as the voice of reason here – he's sulking because Gamora refuses to let him blow up moons – but the exchange does hit on something that's been bothering me about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more specifically its women.

In 2018, Marvel Studios will release their first female-led superhero movie in Captain Marvel, a long-awaited announcement that was understandably greeted with excitement earlier this month. Carol Danvers will be McU's third female superhero overall, following Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow and Zoe Saldana's Gamora, and my only wish is that she be written as something other than an unflappable, stony-faced buzzkill.

Yes, the female Guardian of the Galaxy is the most competent, smart and strong of the bunch, but she's also the least likeable, as polls »

Mel Gibson to Direct 'Hacksaw Ridge' Starring Andrew Garfield

20 November 2014 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Eight years after directing his last feature, 2006's Apocalypto, Mel Gibson is negotiating to direct Hacksaw Ridge, which has Andrew Garfield in talks to star.

The plot is based on the true story of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious objector in U.S. history to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. Doss served as a U.S. Army medic during the Battle of Okinowa who refused to kill enemy soldiers. President Harry S. Truman awarded him the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1945 for saving so many lives during the war. The title refers to the location of a brutal two-week stretch of the Battle of Okinawa, where American troops fought Japanese soldiers on a series of rocky cliffs.

Deadline reports that Mel Gibson's deal is not closed yet, and that negotiations are "moving forward delicately and slowly." Robert Schenkkan wrote the script with Randall Wallace, who wrote the »

WWE Superstar Sheamus Wants To Play Venom

19 November 2014 6:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A few years ago, it would have seemed outlandish to think of a WWE champion taking on a major role in a superhero movie, but both Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Dave Batista, who play antiheroes Black Adam and Drax the Destroyer, respectively, have proven that it can be done. Now, it appears that current WWE superstar Sheamus (Stephen Farrelly) may join that exclusive club as well.

It seems that Dublin-born Sheamus has set his sights on a Hollywood career and is keen on tackling a famous antihero of his own: Venom. In a new interview, the pro wrestler cites current superhero actors Michael Fassbender, Robert Downey Jr. and Hugh Jackman as those he’d most like to work with, and feels that he could do violent, symbiote-wearing Eddie Brock justice:

“I always read comic books as a kid, I always remember Eddie Brock, who was Venom in the Spider-Man comics. »

10 Worst Instances Of Marvel Movies Dropping The Ball

17 November 2014 4:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Marvel movies are completely dominating the comic book movie scene at the moment, with Marvel Studios’ Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise killing it at the box office, Fox’s X-Men series still going strong after fourteen years and Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise providing some able backup to the pair.

In fact, such is the popularity of the scene – mostly thanks to Marvel – that comic book movies are the most popular genre of movie in Hollywood, period, right now. Four of the top six movies of 2014 so far – in terms of worldwide box office grossing – have been movies based on Marvel characters (Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Marvel are rightfully receiving a lot of praise as a result.

So popular and so well-made are Marvel’s movies that some people are resigned to seeing »

Prisoners Scribe Aaron Guzikowski May Get The Wolf Man Howling Again For Universal

12 November 2014 8:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve known for some time that Universal is trying to breathe new life into its catalogue of classic movie monsters, with Dracula Untold introducing a new bloodsucker in the form of Luke Evans, and a new Mummy on the way that will find Alex Kurtzman (executive producer, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) directing from a script by Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange). Now, a new rumor has surfaced claiming that the studio wants Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski to write a new take on The Wolf Man, one of its most treasured monsters.

News of Guzikowski’s involvement was embedded in a Deadline report on Universal’s plans for new Fast & Furious movies earlier today. Nothing else has yet come out about The Wolf Man, but the report indicates that the studio is doing its best to expedite the resurgence of its Universal Monsters franchise. Guzikowski, whose work on Prisoners was roundly »

What Sony Has To Say About That Spider-Man / Aunt May Movie

12 November 2014 7:18 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, she was accused of being a "laundry sheriff." Then came rumors that Peter Parker.s Aunt May (played by Sally Field in these new movies) might be getting her own solo standalone movie . a prequel that would explore May.s past while also helping Sony retain the rights to the Spider-Man characters and franchise. The Internet, um, lit up in response to that speculation. But the studio.s tossing cold water on that raging Web fore before it goes too far. When reached for comment on the possible Aunt May movie, a source at Sony told Comic Book Resources that the story is a "silly rumor" that has "no validity whatsoever." Could that be more smoke and mirrors? Is it possible that Latino-Review, which first reported the story, got it wrong? Or is an Aunt Man movie only one of many possibilities in play »

Sony denies Aunt May movie rumour

11 November 2014 11:54 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday rumour specialists Latino-Review dropped a new report, claiming that Sony was looking at an Amazing Spider-Man spin-off centred around the character of Aunt May, which would take place in her youth without the inclusion of Spider-Man.

Well, if Sony is to be believed, the report is nothing but a fabrication, with a studio source telling Comic Book Resources that the story is nothing but “a silly rumour” with “no validity whatsoever.”

Sony has The Sinister Six set for 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 looking at a 2018 release date, along with spin-offs centred around Venom and an as-yet-unrevealed female-led project. However, if talk is to be believed, the future of the Spider-Man franchise remains uncertain after the negative reception towards The Amazing Spider-Man 2, so don’t be surprised if these plans change…

Are you disappointed that we won’t be getting an Aunt May solo movie? Or is that a silly question? »

Sony Says Aunt May Movie Without Spider-man Is A "Silly Rumor"

11 November 2014 3:14 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  Late last night, Da7e Gonzales from Latino-Review surprised us when he reported that Sony was developing a movie "about Aunt May as a youth, before she was shouldered with the responsibility of raising Peter Parker." He claimed the film would be an "espionage story" akin to Marvel's Agent Carter. Most people did not react well to this rumor. Earlier today, Comic Book Resources reached out to Sony about the rumor and they debunked it. When reached by Cbr News, a source within Sony stated that the report of a Spider-Man spinoff starring a young Aunt May is a “silly rumor” with “no validity whatsoever.”   We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It »

Plot - Birdman is a dark comedy that follows a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story in a bid to reclaim past glory.

He also wrote the script with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo. The cast includes: Emma Stone ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), Zach Galifianakis ("The Hangover"), Edward Norton ("The Incredible Hulk"), Naomi Watts ("King Kong") and Michael Keaton ("Batman Returns"). »

Is Sony Planning An Aunt May Spider-Man Spinoff?

11 November 2014 9:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you thought that Sony’s plans for the flailing Amazing Spider-Man franchise were crazy before, I suggest you buckle up because this new development is quite a doozy. We know that Sony is still reeling from the disappointment that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and that the studio’s plans for the future of the series are uncertain. The planned Sinister Six and Venom spin-offs are spinning their wheels, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been delayed until an unspecified date in 2018, there’s been talk of doing a “soft reboot” of the character through Sinister Six (if that movie even happens), there’s talk of bringing Gwen Stacy back, and the proposed female-led spin-off film, dubbed Glass Ceiling, is a head-scratcher.

The one thing that all of those films have in common, however, is that they at least feature superpowered characters within the Spider-Man universe who could, with the right approach, »

Sony is Working on an Aunt May Movie Because Who Cares About Anything Anymorec

11 November 2014 8:50 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I am fairly certain at this point Sony just has a bunch of mallards walking across keyboards at their office, randomly selecting Spider-Man properties. This is particularly true today, as Latino Review is reporting they are working on an Aunt May spinoff film without Spider-Man. No, you are not reading that incorrectly. An Aunt May movie. I hear you asking, "Whyc" I can only respond with, "Because it's there." Sony is trying everything they can to make sure the Marvel superhero is still a viable entity, despite the vastly underperforming, both critically and financially, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. With The Sinister Six coming to a female led Spider-Man spinoff to a Venom movie to two planned Amazing Spider-Man sequels, Sony is putting all of its eggs into the Spider-Man basket, which has a growing hole in the bottom of it. So why not throw in an Aunt May movie about »

'Spider-Man': Aunt May Spy Movie in Development at Sony?

11 November 2014 7:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony continues to make it painfully obvious that they have no clue what to do next in terms of their Amazing Spider-Man franchise. While they claim to be moving forward with The Sinister Six next, which is planned for a 2016 release date, followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 3 in 2018, we've also heard that an all-female spinoff featuring various characters from the Spider-Man universe is in the works. Though nothing is set in stone just yet. Now comes word from Latino Review that Sony is also planning to move forward with an Aunt May Spy movie that does not include the Spider-Man character at all.

It sounds as though Sony is desperately grasping at straws in order to keep their Amazing Spider-Man franchise locked at the studio, with Marvel hungry to get their character back before Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018 (the same year as Peter Parker's new adventure).

'Spider-Man' Movie About Aunt May Under Consideration

11 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" did not fare so well, Sony has been looking to rejuvenate the franchise. There's been talk of a Sinister Six movie and possibly a female Spider-Man. It's becoming clear that the best way to do a Spider-Man movie ... is without Spider-Man.

Latino Review floats a rumor that Sony is considering a prequel focusing on Aunt May: "A movie about Aunt May as a youth, before she was shouldered with the responsibility of raising Peter Parker. The target mood is some sort of espionage story in the vein of AMC's 'Mad Men,' which sounds like a way of saying 'classier Agent Carter' without name-dropping Marvel's upcoming series."

As ridiculous as an Aunt May movie sounds, it would actually be following the trend of prequels following side characters. Agent Carter, a breakout from "Captain America," will star in a miniseries on ABC this winter. Fox has a hit with "Gotham, »

Sony rumored to be making an Aunt May film without Spider-Man

10 November 2014 11:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Latino Review has an exclusive – that I am currently praying to any and every deity out there is false – that Sony is moving ahead with plans of creating a film centered on Aunt May… and without Spider-Man.

The reason they are doing it is because if Sony doesn’t continue to make use of the Spider-Man film license, then they will have to return the property to Marvel. The problem that Sony is facing is that after the absolute disaster that was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the company really doesn’t know how they want to push forward. There were rumors of a Sinister Six film that sounded awesome, but that was until we saw the steaming pile of crap that was supposed to lead into it. Apparently, their last-ditch effort to hold onto the license is to tell an origin story about Aunt May as a teenager and her »
