Stan Lee Remembered By Hollywood Stars, Friends & Fans: “One Of The Greatest Creative Minds Of Our Time”

Stan Lee Remembered By Hollywood Stars, Friends & Fans: “One Of The Greatest Creative Minds Of Our Time”
Refresh for updates Stan Lee is being remembered as a genius, an inspiration and a hero “for making people who feel different realize they are special,” as Seth Rogan put it. “There will never be another Stan Lee,” tweeted Chris Evans.

“Damn…Rip Stan,” wrote Ryan Reynolds. “Thanks for everything.”

Tom Rothman, Chairman, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group, said in a statement, “Original and genius are two very overused words in the world today, but Stan was both. Add irrepressible and irreplaceable, and you begin to describe the man. We have all lost a true superhero. We will greatly miss our friendly neighborhood Stan Lee.”

Geoff Johns, producer, author and former chief creative officer at DC Entertainment, told Deadline, “I’m incredibly saddened to hear about to hear about Stan Lee’s passing. He was obviously a genius, the creator of so many wonderful characters, worlds and universes.

Chloe Grace Moretz (‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’) on fighting gay conversion therapy in era of Mike Pence [Exclusive Video Interview]
When Chloe Grace Moretz read the script for “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” she was “taken aback, obviously, about conversion therapy as a whole, and that this is an actual practice in America.” She was even more surprised when she met actual survivors, and found that “none of them were older than 25; they had been in since they were 15. I think the mundanity of the issue was something that really shocked me.” Set in 1993, this FilmRise release stars Moretz as a teenage girl whose conservative guardians hope to change her sexual orientation by sending her to a religious camp. Watch our exclusive video interview above.

  • Deadline
Exclusive: The second comic book from Netflix and Mark Millar doesn’t actually come out until December 5, but we have an exclusive look at Prodigy now, as you can see below.

"Love Is A Gun" For 'Bonnie and Clyde'

  • SneakPeek
Chloë Grace Moretz of "Kick-Ass" fame and Jack O’Connell ("Unbroken") will star as moronic, 1930's killers, bank robbers 'Bonnie And Clyde' in director Kiké Maillo's "Love Is A Gun", adapting author Jeff Guinn's novel "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde", targeting an early 2019 start:

Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer of Kamala Films ("A Private War") are producing with Sean and Bryan Furst ("Daybreakers") for Skybound Entertainment.

The dim-witted bank-robbers killed at least nine police officers and several civilians.

A snapshot of the couple found at an abandoned hide-out, with pistol-toting Bonnie smoking a cigar, was subsequently distributed to the press, positioning the unmarried outlaws on the national media scene, launching their brief careers as 'fun-loving' criminal superstars.

Without Bonnie, the media outside Texas might have dismissed Clyde as a gun-toting punk...

...but a steady stream of photographs kept the media and the Depression-era public wanting more.

Nicolas Cage reminisces about the first time he wore a superhero costume and the traumatic Halloween that followed in this exclusive video from Rolling Stone. According to the Mandy actor, he was five or six-years-old when his grandmother bought Cage and his other brother Batman costumes on Halloween.

“Just beautiful Batman costumes with masks and beautiful capes and yellow utility belts,” Cage remembered to Rolling Stone. “But for some reason they lost my cape – I had the costume and the mask, but no cape – and they gave me this drab green plaid blanket,

Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell Will Play Outlaws Bonnie and Clyde in a New Film Called Love Is A Gun

There’s a new Bonnie and Clyde film in development called Love is a Gun and the two legendary outlaws will be played by Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken).

This movie is is based on a book called Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde from author Jeff Guinn. The script for the movie is being written by Sheldon Turner (Up In The Air) with revisions by Johnny Newman (Narcos) and Kiké Maillo (Eva) is directing.

There hasn’t been a Bonnie and Clyde movie made since Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway’s classic 1967 film. I’m kinda surprised it’s taken so long to tell their story on the big screed again.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow were notorious criminals who traveled central U.S. with their gang during the Great Depression, robbing banks and killing when cornered or confronted.

Mark Millar Praises New Aquaman Trailer And Bashes The McU

The new five-minute trailer for Aquaman may have earned the Dceu a convert in comic book writer Mark Millar.

The scribe known for his work on Kick-Ass and Civil War hasn’t been the biggest fan of DC’s cinematic output in the past. Earlier this year, for instance, Millar argued that superheroes like Superman and Wonder Woman don’t translate well to the big screen, since these characters are more defined by their powers than their personalities. But based on this recent tweet from the writer, the latest footage from Arthur Curry’s first standalone film may have him rethinking his stance:

“Aquaman trailer just made modern Marvel look like 70s TV Marvel, chums. The green gauntlet has been slapped down and DC back in the game. A 5 min trailer so damn audacious, [James Wan], you damn genius!”

Given the difficulties experienced by the Dceu in these last few
