Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie will star in the Netflix thriller “Point Blank.”

Joe Lynch is directing from a script by Adam G. Simon. Joe Carnahan and Grillo are producing via their War Party banner, along with Johanna Byer producing for Gaumont. The film is a remake of Fred Cavaye’s 2010 crime drama of the same title.

Production is set to start this summer.

Thor: Ragnarok Director Has Best Response After Its Labeled Gayest Marvel Movie

Thor: Ragnarok Director Has Best Response After Its Labeled Gayest Marvel Movie
Thor: Ragnarok was a breath of fresh air for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and especially for the Thor character. The over-seriousness of the first two installments gave way to a colorful and humorous approach that completely reinvigorated actor Chris Hemsworth's love for playing the mighty superhero. Director Taika Waititi encouraged adlibbing lines, which added to the fun element and Hemsworth wanted to bring that into Infinity War as well. Apparently, some of those new elements came off as gay since a new article has now labeled Thor: Ragnarok as the gayest McU movie, leading to the perfect response from Waititi.

Vulture compiled a list of the gayest Marvel movies and Thor: Ragnarok is number one, for more reasons than any of the other previous 18 films in the McU. The author notes that he ranked the movies as to, "whether they tickled my queer sensibility," which means that Ragnarok ticked

Avengers: Infinity War Writers Says They Fought To Get Hired By Marvel

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have written some of the most acclaimed entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, having penned all three Captain America movies and the recent record-breaking blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War. It’s interesting to think, then, that they almost never got to contribute to the franchise at all, as they had to fight to get the gig on Captain America: The First Avenger.

While speaking to Kevin Smith on his Fat Man on Batman podcast, Markus and McFeely talked about the long process that led to them providing their first script for the McU. The latter revealed that it all started when they were removed from Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, after penning the first two movies in the fantasy series.

“We had done the first three Narnias, right, and that third one was troubled, and the Writer’s Guild went on strike,

Infinity War Writers Reveal the Villain They Wanted in the McU

Infinity War Writers Reveal the Villain They Wanted in the McU
Infinity War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have revealed the one villain that they wanted to use in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. McFeely and Markus have had the luxury of working with some of the biggest comic book superheroes in history while working on all three of the Captain America movies as well as Infinity War and the upcoming Avengers 4. With that being said, there are some characters that they wish that they could've explored along with a pretty huge villain.

Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus appeared on Kevin Smith's Fat Man on Batman podcast where they were asked if there were any characters in the Marvel world that they would've liked to have worked on. McFeely said the villainous M.O.D.O.K., aka Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, was the one who he wished that they could have brought to the Marvel Cinematic Universe the most.

Avengers: Infinity War Writers Reveal The One Villain They Wanted In The McU

Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been lucky enough to bring an enormous amount of awesome Marvel comics characters to the big screen in their four McU movies released to date – that’s all three Captain America films and Avengers: Infinity War, to be specific, with Avengers 4 also on the way. However, there are only so many characters you can fit in one film and, as such, there’ve been some that have sadly been left on the cutting room floor.

While speaking with Kevin Smith on his podcast, the conversation turned towards the heroes/villains they always wanted to put into one of their Marvel movies. McFeely cited Armin Zola – as played by Toby Jones in The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier – as an example, while Markus admitted that there are some that haven’t been able to fit into the scope of the films.

Avengers 4 Fan Art Reimagines A Classic Scene With New Costumes

Though we don’t know all that much about Avengers 4 at present, it does seem likely that the conclusion to Phase Three of the McU will bring the franchise full circle. At the end of Infinity War, due to Thanos’ Snap, pretty much the only heroes left alive were the original six founding members of the superhero group. That’s Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye, for those with short memories.

We wonder, then, if we’ll get a scene which reunites these heroes in the midst of battle, calling back to the first time they did this in 2012’s The Avengers. But what would such a sequence look like? Well, an awesome new piece of fan art has got us covered on that front.

20 Most Insane Mistakes The Avengers Made In Infinity War

Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War was everything fans wanted. It was a decade in the making, a culmination of a whopping 18 movies, dozens of incredible characters, and some of the best storytelling we've ever seen. In the past ten years, many of us who hid our geekdom behind textbooks in high school finally found ourselves flying our nerd flags high as we proudly wore our Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America shirts, discussing the merits of superpowers versus super gadgets with people who've never read a comic book. In a word, it's been beautiful.

Even so, the movie could never live up to its own hype after that many years of marketing, merchandise and mania. It would never be able to accommodate that many characters in a perfect story, let alone fit in all of the Marvel characters in the comic Infinity Wars.

"Captain America" - July 4, 2018

Sneak Peek a new teaser trailer, plus images supporting Marvel Comics' publication of the latest "Captain America" comic book title, from writer Ta-Nehisi Coates and illustrator Leinil Francis Yu, with covers from Yu and Alex Ross, available July 4, 2018:

"..."it is winter in America. For over 70 years, he has stood in stalwart defense of our country and its people. But in the aftermath of the radical left-wing 'Hydra' takeover of the nation, Captain America is a figure of controversy, carrying a tarnished shield, Now a new enemy is rising! Who are the 'Power Elite'? And how do they intend to co-opt and corrupt the symbol that is Captain America?..."

"Those of you who've never read a 'Captain America' comic book or seen him in the 'Marvel' movies, would be forgiven for thinking of Captain America as an unblinking mascot for American nationalism," said writer Coates.

There are potential Spoilers for Avengers 4 below, so read ahead at your own risk. This morning, new concept art for Avengers 4 leaked online and beyond the normal reactions to seeing something from the highly anticipated film, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are tripping out on Captain America's new look. Infinity War saw Steve Rogers post-Civil War with longer hair and a beard that many believe gave the character an extra edge while going up against Thanos.

In the newly leaked concept art for Avengers 4, Captain America is front and center, leading the charge of the new team that features Thor, Nebula, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Rocket, Black Widow, Hulk, War Machine, Hawkeye, and Ant-Man. However, beyond the look of Cap's baby face, he also

Hugo Weaving To Star in a Terrorist Thriller Vr Film Called Lone Wolf

I don't know what the future holds for Virtual Reality films, but there are production companies and studios that are playing around with the possibilities. There is a market for Vr films, it's just really small right now because no one knows what it could be.

There's a new Vr film project that's been announced called Lone Wolf. It's a terrorist thriller and Hugo Weaving is set to star in it alongside Hotel Mumbai actress Tilda Cobham-Hervey.

The film is a modern-day adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s 1907 novel The Secret Agent. The story explores themes of fanaticism and terrorism, and it "involves a cluster of anarchists, one of whom is also a police informant, who receive a proposal to attack the Sydney Opera House."

According to Variety, Weaving plays a police minister involved in the conspiracy, and Cobham-Hervey as one of the cell members.

Jamie Foxx Is Spawn in McFarlane's Blumhouse Reboot
It's official! Jamie Foxx is our new Spawn. The Oscar-winner has boarded the upcoming comic book adaptation from Blumhouse Productions, which will see the character's creator, Todd McFarlane, making his directorial debut, working from a script he wrote. Foxx expressed interest in the role of Al Simmons, aka Spawn in the past and we recently reported that he may indeed be circling the new live-action take on the Image Comics character. Now he's locked in and will be taking on his first role in a comic book movie since 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here's what Foxx had to say about it in a statement.

Jamie Foxx Cast as Spawn in Blumhouse Remake

  • Cinelinx
Blumhouse and director/creator Todd McFarlene are on track for a brand new Spawn adaptation, and they just got an eager star to join the project! More within.

For several years, Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn, has been doing everything he can to create a new film adaptation for his most treasured character, after the mixed reaction to the 1997 adaptation, starring Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite). So, when he decided to take his place in the director's chair and put together this adaptation at Blumhouse, there was only one actor he had in mind for the titular role, Jamie Foxx.

According to a report from Deadline, Jamie Foxx has signed on to play Al Simmons, the CIA agent who was betrayed, killed, and ultimately tricked into become the demon, Spawn. It's also being reported that this is a role that Foxx has been pining over for some time, even

The Weird Secret Behind Captain America's Infinity War Phone Number

The Weird Secret Behind Captain America's Infinity War Phone Number
There are plenty of Easter Eggs to find in Avengers: Infinity War, and Captain America's phone number was supposed to be one of them. You can clearly see the phone number in the flip phone that Steve Rogers gave to Tony Stark at the end of Civil War, when Bruce Banner picks it up. The number is 678-136-7092, which is an Atlanta based number where most of the production for Infinity War and the upcoming Avengers 4 took place. As it turns out, the Russo Brothers had the number set up for a viral marketing campaign, but Disney's legal team said no to this cool Captain America Easter egg.

After Infinity War hit theaters, several Marvel Cinematic Universe devotees copied down Steve Rogers' digits to call after the movie. However, the line was disconnected. When people found out that the number was a real phone number, confusion started to spread.

Deadpool 2 Writers Want a Captain America Team Up

The Disney/Fox merger is still at least a year away from happening, if it happens at all. There's still a lot of red tape to get through before a deal of the magnitude is pulled off. However, that hasn't stopped many fans of Fox's Marvel properties and Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe of dreaming up some pretty interesting crossovers. As it turns out, Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have their crossover dreams too and want Captain America to team up with the Merc with a Mouth.

In a new interview, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were asked if there were any X-Force members that they wanted to use for Deadpool 2 but weren't able to secure the rights to. They joked around, mentioning that they wanted to use Spider-Man, which brought up the subject of the Fox and Disney merger. After that was brought up, the idea

Will Avengers 4 Travel Back To Revisit Guardians Of The Galaxy?

You’re most probably familiar with the big rumor surrounding Avengers 4 at the moment.

Having put together set photos with leaked info, it seems that next year’s Infinity War sequel will feature Earth’s Mightiest Heroes travelling back through time in order to defeat Thanos. In particular, it looks like the events of a few key McU movies will be revisited. Most notably, The Avengers, as Chris Evans was spotted on set wearing his 2012 Captain America outfit.

Now, adding fuel to the fire is a resurfaced video from Zoe Saldana’s Instagram, which reveals another film that could be revisited in Avengers 4. Shot in August 2017, Saldana can be seen in full Gamora garb in the clip below. Specifically, she’s wearing the costume she had on in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. So, the Avengers may well interact with Thanos’ daughter during that point in her life.

How the McU Has Earned Success

  • Cinelinx
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has arguably gotten better over time. Part of the reason for this is that it has learned from its mistakes. For big-budget movie franchises, that’s a rarity.

The McU is the greatest superhero movie franchise of all time. Through 10 years and 19 films (so far), the series has captivated and entertained audiences around the world. It has been a resounding success both in terms of box office success, and also in maintaining a high level of creativity and purpose typically not seen in major cinematic properties. The McU has been able to aptly translate some of the most popular comic book superheroes from page to screen, appealing to audiences that otherwise might not have been very interested in comic books in the first place.

However, the McU is also not perfect. The studios, filmmakers, and even actors have made some decisions along the way that have
