It surely has to happen, doesn’t it? Marvel have to give the big green monster another day in the sun after he stole The Avengers and then helped build one of the best sequences in Age Of Ultron. Sure, there will be concerns that two prior failures suggests a downward trend, but it’s unlikely anyone would make anything as odd as Ang Lee’s attempt, or as sloppy and fragmented as The Incredible Hulk.
The McU is ready for a new dawn for Hulk. Just as long as it’s not a brand new start, because Joss Whedon has already done all of the necessary establishing work and there’s only so much rebooting any fandom can take. All that Marvel need now is a plan of action: and luckily for them, there are some pretty simple guidelines that could easily make a successful Hulk movie.

The composer took to Twitter to reveal that he was due to begin work on the hotly anticipated R-rated Marvel adaptation today (October 5).

There are a ton of reasons to be excited for Deadpool, a movie which for a long time appeared to have little to no chance of ever being made. Leaked test footage ensured that Fox had no other choice than to put it into production though, and both the promotional campaign and news of it being R-Rated has kept fans very happy (not to mention the great cast led by Ryan Reynolds).
Junkie Xl’s work was recently featured in Mad Max: Fury Road, but he rose to prominence with his very unique style after working alongside Hans Zimmer on The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It was also confirmed earlier this year that he will »

Hope you're not tired of Transformers yet! Because we're getting at least four more sequels in the next ten years. And this doesn't even include the spinoffs and animated feature films. It's not clear if Michael Bay is going to stick around for all of them, but Hasbro has confirmed today that Transformers 6, Transformers 7 and Transformers 8 are all happening, carrying the franchise well into the next decade.
We already knew that Paramount Pictures had big plans for its Transformers franchise. It was announced in September that Transformers 5 is shooting in June 2016, with a script from Academy Award nominated writer Akiva Goldsman. It's suspected that Michael Bay will return to direct, but that hasn't been confirmed by the director at this time. The sequel will be followed by an animated spinoff that revolves around the robots' home world of Cybertron, tentatively titled Transformers One. Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari »
Back in June, a rumor surfaced that Sony Pictures and Marvel may be developing a new movie based on the Spider-Gwen comics, after Marvel's Ike Perlmutter recently green-lit a new solo comic series for the character. We never heard anything concrete about this Spider-Gwen spinoff, but earlier this week, a new fan-made trailer started making the rounds, stoking interest in the character getting her own solo adventure. During a Q&A to promote Avengers: Age of Ultron, producers Kevin Feige and Jeremy Latcham revealed they hadn't yet seen the trailer, but they both thought the comic book version of Spider-Gwen was "cool."
The Spider-Gwen trailer that surfaced this week featured footage from The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, along with Julianne Cancalosi portraying Spider-Gwen in scenes where she's wearing the masked costume. Even if a Spider-Gwen movie does happen, it likely won't be with Emma Stone, »
Despite the mixed reception to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield’s acting career definitely hasn’t taken too much of a hit, as he recently finished working with Martin Scorsese and will also soon be seen in Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge. The British actor has actually landed the lead role in the World War II set movie and will star alongside Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Rachel Griffiths.
The film will see him playing a solider who was ostracized and made to serve as a medic in the Pacific for his refusal to carry a weapon after being drafted into the army, only to later be branded a hero after saving an entire unit of allied troops.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss (Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, »

Before the Sony Hack and Marvel’s subsequent deal with the studio to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six came very close to becoming a reality. In fact, it was one of a number of spinoffs being lined up, with others including Venom and a female-led movie focusing on an unspecified group of characters.
In a recent interview to promote The Martian, Goddard spilled the beans on his plans for the movie, and while he wouldn’t reveal which villains he chose to for his Sinister Six, he did confirm that the film wouldn’t have been tied directly into the closing few minutes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
“I felt strongly that I wanted this movie to just stand on its own. I feel like, in general, I get tired of these movies where they’re becoming too much of a puzzle for people to solve. »

Drew Goddard on his abandoned Sinister Six movie: "I was making everyone the protagonist"
Had Sony's Spider-Man movie universe come together, then by now there was a sporting chance we could have seen at least a trailer for Drew Goddard's planned film of the Sinister Six. Widely teased in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Goddard elected not to direct The Martian so he could make the Spider-Man spin-off. Yet following the box office performance of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Sony's subsequent deal with Marvel Studios over the screen future of the webslinger, the Sinister Six project fell by the wayside.
Chatting to IGN, Goddard talked about the film falling through, saying that the making of the movie "is the special part". "After that it’s the business part. Like, I want people to see these things, but it’s done. And with Sinister, you know I love that script, »
Every Monday, Vulture debuts a new video in their Remix series, which puts a different spin on popular franchises. For instance, one of their recent Remixes was highlighted in Nerd Alert last month, which gave fans a glimpse at what an Idris Elba-lead version of Spectre would look like. Today's Vulture Remix shows us what a potential Spider-Gwen movie would look like, starring Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, with the video using footage from The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the original 2002 Spider-Man, along with Easy A and Birdman.
You may recall, back in June, we reported that Marvel Comics signed off on a new Spider-Gwen comic book series, which was believed to set up a potential movie of the same name. The Spider-Gwen movie was never confirmed, but even if it does move forward in the future, it won't feature Emma Stone, since Spider-Man is being rebooted once again, »
This maybe old news, and apologies if somebody has already posted, but I've stolen borrowed data from our good friends at deadline to really look at what where the most profitable CBMs of 2013 and 2014 (they don't, I think, have information for the 2015 films yet). The films I'm looking at are: - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Big Hero 6 - Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Guardians of the Galaxy - Iron Man 3 - Man of Steel - Thor: The Dark World - X-Men Days of Future Past Box Office numbers don't tell the full story, and if you are interested to know how Deadline calculated these numbers, I'll put a list of inclusions and exclusions at the bottom. It's worth noting that these are still Best Guesses, as Studios don't release this information if they don't have to. #1: Iron Man 3 Box Office: $1215m Total Revenue: $1026m »
It.s telling, when Andrew Garfield reflects on his years in the Spider-Man suit, that the best memories he has have nothing at all to do with the actual movies that were made. Rather, they involve opportunities that the role afforded him off the screen. at least, according to the actor.s own words. Garfield was busy promoting his work on the new drama 99 Homes, but took time while speaking with Uproxx to reflect on the years he spent making The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Marc Webb. The best part about holding down that role? Garfield admits, The two highlights of the whole Spider-Man time were the two Comic-Cons that I did, where I could just fuck around... I loved me at those! It felt the most authentic version of Spider-Man that I could bring. Andrew Garfield got a lot of press, and fan-driven goodwill, when »
Around this time last year, Sony had big plans for Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man 4 had release dates, and spinoff movies focusing on Sinister Six, Venom, and an unknown female character were all in various stages of development. Everything changed when The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn’t quite the success Sony

Earlier today, a new report from Deadline revealed that the writers room for Transformers 5 has completed its work, with Akiva Goldsman, who lead the team, set to write the script for this sequel, which Michael Bay will direct. When the writers room was set up earlier this year, it was believed that the goal was to get a story for Transformers 5 ready, for Michael Bay to film after he wrapped on 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which hits theaters this January. Shortly after today's report broke, Michael Bay took to his Twitter page to clarify that he hasn't committed to directing the sequel quite yet, but he is discussing ideas with Steven Spielberg. Here's what he had to say in his brief statement.
"Re: directing TF5. No, it's not official. I have not committed to any idea as of yet. Just met with Steven and we are discussing. »
After an intense few months of brainstorming in the coveted Transformers Writers Room, the gang led by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has finally decided on two projects that will move forward at Paramount. The first is Transformers 5, which will be written by Akiva Goldsman himself, the man behind such classics as I Am Legend and A Beautiful Mind. The second is an animated spinoff that revolves around the robots' home world of Cybertron, tentatively titled Transformers One. Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari will be in charge of penning this origin story.
At this time, Akiva Goldsman has a concrete blueprint he will use to complete the Transformers 5 screenplay. The sequel will start shooting in June, with Mark Wahlberg set to star and Michael Bay returning to direct his fifth film in the franchise. The sequel will likely hit theaters summer 2017.
There is no set release date for Transformers One. »
It looks like Paramount Pictures’ Transformers writers room has beared fruit, with the studio announcing today that it is officially moving forward with Transformers 5, as well as an as-yet-untitled animated origin movie focussing on Cybertron.
Deadline is reporting that Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) will pen the fifth instalment in the live-action series, which will reunite Transformers: Age of Extinction director Michael Bay and star Mark Wahlberg. Meanwhile, the animated movie will be penned by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who wrote this year’s superhero origin tale Ant-Man.
The site goes on to suggest that of the nine ideas pitched in the writers room experiment, executive producer Steven Spielberg felt that five had promise, and that there is a loose plan in place for future movies from Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Lindsey Beer (Short Circuit).

Deadline reports that the Transformers writers room has now been disbanded, and the biggest thing to come out of that impressive group of talent - Christina Hodson (The Fugitive) and Lindsey Beer (Dig), Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man), Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Steven DeKnight (Daredevil), and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Black Hawk Down) - is Transformers 5 from Akiva Goldsman. The blueprint for the movie has been created, and the plan is for Michael Bay to direct and Mark Wahlberg to return. Production will start next June. Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari meanwhile are set to write an animated feature which will revolve around Cybertron. It's expected to be an origin story for both the Autobots and Decepticons. Shockingly, these are the only two movies to be set despite the huge number of writers who participated. »
It's not that long ago that a sequel that did 65% of the original's business was deemed a success. Tell that to Spider-Man today...
When Tim Burton's Batman Returns was released in the summer of 1992, Warner Bros had high hopes. It was the follow-up to his 1989 Batman movie, which had shattered the record for a film's opening weekend at the Us box office (marking the first $40m+ opening on record in the States).
Batman went on to gross $251m at the American box office alone, and is credited as being a major stepping stone in the invention of the modern blockbuster (after the likes of Jaws and Star Wars). Hopes were not small for the sequel.
Even as late as the early 1990s, the main indicator of a film's commercial success lay in its American box office takings. By that kind of measure, this summer's Terminator: Genisys would have been »
Drew Goddard had spent a year working on Sinister Six, and was linked with the Marvel/Sony Spider-Man reboot. So why didn't he get the job?
One of the consequences of The Amazing Spider-Man 2's underperformance at the box office was that it derailed Sony's plans for a Spider-Man movie universe. As such, we never got to see what The Cabin In The Woods' Drew Goddard would get to do with the Sinister Six film, which he'd been hired to work on.
When it was announced that Sony and Marvel were coming together for the future of Spider-Man films, there was still talk for a while that Drew Goddard may land the director's chair on the new movie. Instead, though, that job has gone to Cop Car's Jon Watts, who starts shooting the new Spider-Man film next year.
Yet why didn't Drew Goddard get the job? Cinema Blend asked him. »
It's hard to feel too sorry for this guy, right? Once this press tour for 99 Homes wraps up, Andrew Garfield can probably look forward to no longer being quizzed about his time spent playing Spider-Man (though depending on the timing, he'll likely be asked for his thoughts on Tom Holland's take on Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War next year). When The Independent asked the actor to reflect on the experience, he told them: "There were beautiful things about it and also privileged things about it which I struggled with and then some really disenchanting things that happened," he revealed in what is no doubt a veiled reference to the behind the scenes chaoas which gave us The Amazing Spider-Man 2. "Hollywood is the epicentre of worldly values where a piece of art is judged, not on how many lives it touches or what change it makes, but »
This piece contains hints of a spoiler for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's ending. The comments will, more than likely (and understandably) contain more details on that ending.
Let's go in reverse order.
With specific relation to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Garfield revealed that the ending of the film was in part down to him. "That was one of my favourite parts of the film, and it was my idea", he told MTV.
"I felt the film was missing me as a seven year old. All of us as a seven year old, being inspired, and given the strength to be who we are, »
