Black Panther 2’s Villain Has Been Narrowed Down To Two Choices

We don’t know exactly when, but Black Panther 2 is definitely coming sooner rather than later. Marvel has their work cut out for them in serving up a sequel to the smash hit 2018 movie though as one major reason King T’Challa’s first solo film was so good was because of its villain, Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger. As such, something BP2 definitely needs to do is find a new antagonist who’s just as compelling.

On that note, We Got This Covered has heard that the search for the franchise’s next villain has been narrowed down to two. According to our source, Marvel’s candidates include one iconic comic book character that fans have been waiting to see in the McU for a long time and another much more obscure figure pulled from the page.

As per previous reports and rumors, one of these is Namor.

New Matrix Movie Is A Prequel, Michael B. Jordan Playing Young Morpheus

Every once in a while, we get a movie that makes a mark on the world that’s so indelible that it can never be touched again. In 1999, The Matrix became that movie. Written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the sci-fi epic tackled giant, complex themes about the nature of reality, presenting us with an intriguing story of heroism and self-discovery. And while we thought that the property had been laid to rest after the underwhelming trilogy closer, The Matrix Revolutions, back in 2003, there’s been a lot of chatter lately about Warner Bros. wanting to revisit it.

Indeed, we’ve been hearing that the studio is toying with ideas for sequels, prequels, spinoffs or even a total reboot, and just yesterday news broke that Michael B. Jordan would be at the forefront of this new project. But what form will it take and how exactly does WB intend on continuing the franchise?

The Wachowski's Are Reportedly Set To Direct The New Matrix Movie with Michael B. Jordan

Last month John Wick director Chad Stahelski said that The Matrix revival film was moving forward at Warner Bros. and that The Wachowski’s would be involved in some way. He is quoted as saying:

“I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved. And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.”

It was later reported that the this comment was inaccurate and taken out of context. But, maybe it wasn’t! Discussing Film, who has reported several scoops that turn out to be true, says that not only are the Wachowski’s involved, they are directing it!

Michael B. Jordan to Star in New Matrix Movie Directed by Lana Wachowski?
Is Michael B. Jordan preparing to join The Matrix franchise? According to a new rumor, he is and Lana Wachowski is reportedly on board to direct. A few weeks ago, John Wick 3 director Chad Stahelski said both Wachowskis were on board for The Matrix 4, but his representative later walked back the comment and stated the director was talking hypothetically, leaving many fans of the franchise with their hopes up. Warner Bros. has been developing a Matrix project for years now, which is possibly a reboot.

Apparently the new Matrix movie is going to star Michael B. Jordan and be directed by Lana Wachowski under the working title "Project Ice Cream." According to the rumor, the movie is currently in active development and ready to start shooting in Chicago in the near future. Zak Penn reportedly wrote the script, which has found its way into the news before. It's important to

Michael B. Jordan Reportedly Set To Star In New Matrix Movie

Whoa!

Dystopian sci-fi classic The Matrix recently turned 20 but no one can deny that there’s still a thirst out there to see more of its uber-cool brand of futuristic cyberpunk action. While there had been talk of a potential reboot at Warner Bros. for a while, that’s somewhat simmered down as of late, and though we’ve heard that the studio pursuing a sequel instead is an option as well, nothing concrete about the future of the franchise has emerged for some time.

It seems that the wheels are in motion though, as rumors have begun creeping online and the latest comes from The Geeks Worldwide, who claim that Michael B. Jordan is set to star in a new Matrix movie from original co-director Lana Wachowski. Though the outlet says that they can’t confirm this 100% just yet, Jordan’s long been linked to the project and it

‘David Makes Man’ Trailer: Tarell Alvin McCraney Brings ‘Penetrative Poem’ to Own — Exclusive

Own: Oprah Winfrey Network has set a Wednesday, August 14 at 10 p.m. Et/Pt premiere date for its anticipated new drama series “David Makes Man,” from Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney (“Moonlight”) and Warner Horizon Scripted Television.

An Oscar to his credit, his script for Netflix’s Steven Soderbergh drama “High Flying Bird” drawing high praise, and his Broadway production “Choir Boy” having wrapped up a successful run in March, playwright and screenwriter McCraney continues to impress with his initial foray into television with the deeply personal “David Makes Man.”

Inspired by the writer’s impoverished youth in Florida, the milieu naturally calls to mind “Moonlight,” and even borrows some of the film’s stylistic touchstones, bathing images in evocative colors, accompanied by a melancholic score that sets the lyrical tone.

Max Landis Should Have Been Thrown Out of Hollywood Years Ago — Analysis

In April 2016, MGM won an auction for a Max Landis-penned underwater horror script, “Deeper,” with Bradley Cooper and “White God” director Kornel Mundruczo attached. When the timing didn’t work for the talent, MGM pressed forward on the project, hiring Baltasar Kormakur (“Everest”) last fall; in February, Idris Elba was reportedly in talks to star. Today, Landis is the subject of a searing expose by Amy Zimmerman in The Daily Beast — and, according to sources who requested anonymity, “Deeper” has fallen apart.

Of course, movies come together or don’t all the time, for reasons large and small. However, this may be the first indication that Landis’ counterintuitive, decade-long career path — one that included making critically reviled films while enjoying a long-term reputation as an unabashed emotional and sexual abuser of women — is no longer one that will scale.

Landis first garnered attention as the screenwriter of Josh Trank’s 2012 everyman-superhero film “Chronicle.

Josh Trank Banned Max Landis From ‘Chronicle’ Set and Hasn’t Spoken to Him Since 2012

Josh Trank Banned Max Landis From ‘Chronicle’ Set and Hasn’t Spoken to Him Since 2012
Josh Trank reacted to the latest sexual and emotional abuse allegations made against Max Landis by revealing on social media that he banned Landis from the set of their 2012 superhero movie “Chronicle.” Trank and Landis came up with the “Chronicle” story together, with Landis getting sole screenplay credit and Trank directing the project. The film, released by 20th Century Fox, was a platform at the time for rising actors Dane DeHaan and Michael B. Jordan.

“I 100% believe every word of this article about Max,” Trank wrote on Twitter. “I banned him from visiting principal photography of ‘Chronicle,’ and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012. To read about the terror he’s inflicted on so many women since then makes me sick to my stomach. Heartbroken beyond measure.”

Landis, son of comedy director John Landis, was accused of sexual and emotional abuse by eight women in a lengthy exposé published June 18 by The Daily Beast.
