Sony’s Amy Pascal says Idris Elba should be the next James Bond

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s already the bookmakers’ favourite, and now it has been revealed that Sony co-chairmain Amy Pascal wants Idris Elba (Luther, Thor: The Dark World) to succeed Daniel Craig as 007.

According to The Daily Beast, Pascal sent an email to Elizabeth Cantillon, former executive vice president of production for Columbia Pictures, back in January, which read simply that: “Idris should be the next Bond.”

Having long been rumoured as a potential candidate for Bond, Elba expressed his interest earlier this year, admitting during a Reddit Ama that he would “absolutely” accept the role, should it be offered to him.

Would you like to see Idris Elba as the next 007? Let us know your thoughts…

Is Hawkeye Coming to 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'?

19 December 2014 3:27 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently on hiatus for the next few months, with the new series Marvel's Agent Carter taking over its Tuesday, 9 Pm time slot starting January 6 for an eight-episode run. During Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s two seasons, there have been several connections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with characters who have crossed over from the movies to TV, such as Coulson (Clark Gregg), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hern&#225ndez) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander). Earlier this week, Clark Gregg posted an intriguing comic book photo on his Facebook page, which may tease that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is set to make an appearance on the ABC series.

The image is taken from the Secret Avengers #10 comic, which was released in November, »

Sony Want Thor Star Idris Elba To Be The Next James Bond

19 December 2014 1:30 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There's been a lot of talk about the next James Bond being played by a black actor, and one name which keeps coming up is Luther and Thor: The Dark World star Idris Elba. He's even expressed interest in the role, revealing in a reddit Q&A not too long ago that, "Yes, if it was offered to me, absolutely," he would play the Ian Fleming creation. Just like many of us think Elba should be next 007, so too does Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal according to more leaded "Sony Hack" emails unearthed by The Daily Beast. In an email from January 2014 (so quite some time ago, and an indication that the good stuff in these emails is now reaching an end), she's quoted as saying, "Idris should be the next bond." It's something they've thought about then, but as Pascal will more than likely be out of a »

The year in comic book TV: Go small or go home?

16 December 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This is, to put it plainly, one hell of a time to be a comic book nerd.   All my favorite characters(*) are making the leap from the page to either the big or small screen. Marvel can seemingly do no wrong with its film output, turning an obscure and downright goofy property like "Guardians of the Galaxy" into one of the year's biggest and most beloved hits. TV's most popular comedy ("Big Bang Theory") has a comic book shop as one of its primary sets, and a main character often seen in Flash and Green Lantern t-shirts. TV's most popular drama series ("The Walking Dead") is based on a long-running comic book, and there are currently five other comic-based shows airing on the broadcast networks (ABC's "Marvel's Agents of Shield," Fox's "Gotham," NBC's "Constantine" and the CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash"), with more coming fast. (The CW has "iZombie" set for mid-season, »

Idris Elba clarifies his recent Marvel comments

11 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few weeks ago Idris Elba came in for criticism from some Marvel fans for his comments about working on Thor: The Dark World, where he was quoted as saying that “it ripped his heart out” to find himself harnessed up in a green-screen studio as Heimdall after portraying Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Naturally these comments were interpretted as Elba expressing displeasure with his time on the film, with some reports even going as far as to suggest he may want out of his contract with Marvel Studios. Well, that’s not the case at all, as the British actor has now clarified his position during an interview with The Daily Beast, blaming sloppy journalism and misquoting for the mix-up:

“I don’t know where people got that, man. I was quite specifically talking about the comparison between playing Heimdall on one day, and playing Mandela on the next. »

Agents of Shield, Ep. 2.10, “What They Become”: Best Day Ever?

10 December 2014 6:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agents of Shield, Season 2, Episode 10: “What They Become”

Written by Jeffrey Bell

Directed by Michael Zinberg

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC

Warning: This review contains major spoilers this episode of Agents of Shield.

In season one, the midseason finale of Agents of Shield, “The Bridge,”, was a lackluster, frustrating cliffhanger,  an episode with very little guts and the nerve to pretend like the season thus far was building up to that point. In season two, Agents of Shield shows just how much has changed with its midseason finale, “What They Become.” Nearly everything set up gets a proper payoff, and the action hardly slows down, except for a few brief moments between Skye and her father. A character thought dead in “Ye Who Enter Here” is revealed to be alive, but the celebration is short-lived, as another beloved member of the team is killed off in a brutally fast, »

Kiyoshi Kurosawa Makes French Film Debut With Tahar Rahim (Exclusive)

10 December 2014 11:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marrakech — Kiyoshi Kurosawa (“Penance”) is set to make his first venture outside of Japan with a romance-laced genre drama set around Paris with “The Past” thesp Tahar Rahim on board.

While in Marrakech to attend the homage to Japanese cinema, Kurosawa told Variety his next film is being produced by a French company and will start shooting in February. The helmer, whose latest movie, “Seventh Code,” opened at Rome and earned him the best director nod, said the movie will be a love story, with Rahim cast in one of the two leading roles.

Since breaking through with Jacques Audiard’s “A Prophet,” Rahim has been leading a strong international career and has worked with renowned auteurs including Lou Ye (“Love and Bruises”), Joachim Lafosse (“Our Children”) and Asghar Farhadi (“The Past”).

“It will talk about France today in a symbolic way, and it will have horror elements. It will not be a realistic movie, »

'Agents of Shield' Will Tie-In with 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

9 December 2014 2:22 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In not so surprising news, EW has revealed that Marvel’s Agents of Shield will be connected to the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Considering the intricate relation of the McU, this was an expected move but an exciting one nonetheless. After all, Shield has had ties with Thor: The Dark World and, more importantly, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier whose events forced the series to change its entire dynamic (and made it a much better show in the process) so a crossover with Ultron was a no-brainer. 

Regarding the announcement, executive producer Jed Whedon said:

"You should expect something, The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we’re included in that."

However, executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen said the connection will not be as game-changer as The Winter Soldier was:

"I don’t think any movie has the potential to impact us »

The Awful New Trend With Superhero Origin Stories in Movies and TV

9 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I want to say I’m sorry. I am one of the many who loved the beginning of Man of Steel enough to say I’d watch a whole movie set on Krypton. Those scenes felt like a new Star Wars episode when they arrived last summer. It was a thrill. But then so did parts of Thor: The Dark World and then Guardians of the Galaxy,and now we’re seeing footage from an actual new Star Wars episode coming soon, and the Man of Steel space opera opening just isn’t as special anymore. I no longer need a feature-length Kryptonian prequel. And I certainly don’t want a television series-length Kryptonian prequel. But reportedly there’s one of the latter in development at SyFy from Man of Steel screenwriter David Goyer. Am I partly to blame for maybe somewhere writing or tweeting about wanting something like this? If »

Marvel's Agents of Shield to feature Avengers: Age of Ultron crossover

9 December 2014 9:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel's Agents of Shield is to have some form of crossover with Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The ABC series' plot will tie in with the upcoming Avengers sequel, according to executive producer Jed Whedon.

"You should expect something," he told Entertainment Weekly. "The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we're included in that."

Agents of Shield previously had a plot crossover in Thor: The Dark World, with the agents getting tasked with clearing up the film's aftermath.

Meanwhile, it was revealed that Hydra had infiltrated Shield at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Producer Maurissa Tancharoen added that the next crossover will not be as big as the one in Captain America 2.

"I don't think any movie has the potential to impact us in the way that Captain America 2 did," she said. "But there will be connections."

'Avengers 2' Will Tie Into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

9 December 2014 8:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jed Whedon confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that there will be a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron at some point during Season 2. This doesn't come as a huge surprise, since Season 1 featured several connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including two appearances by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Here's what Jed Whedon had to say in a statement.

"You should expect something. The Avengers is the big tent that all the franchises play under. Obviously, we're included in that."

No specific details were given for how the show would cross over with Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, it won't have nearly as big an impact as Captain America: The Winter Soldier had on the show, where the agency S.H.I.E.L.D. was decimated from the inside by Hydra, forcing Coulson »
