Mark Millar Launching Comic 'Prodigy' for Netflix

Mark Millar Launching Comic 'Prodigy' for Netflix
Comic book author Mark Millar is teaming up with Batman artist Albuquerque for Prodigy, a new release that marks the prolific creator’s second title since setting up shop at Netflix.

Millar, the co-creator of such titles as Wanted, Kick-Ass and Kingsman, sold his publishing company Millarworld in a much ballyhooed deal in 2017. His inaugural comic under that acquisition deal was The Magic Order, whose first issue was published June 13.

According to Netflix, which made the announcement, Prodigy centers on Edison Crane, the world's smartest man, who isn't content with running the world's most successful business: “His brilliant mind ...

“Of course, it’s devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear,

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Gun Crazy in Guns Akimbo First Look

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Gun Crazy in Guns Akimbo First Look
Daniel Radcliffe goes a little bit insane in the first official image from the upcoming thriller Guns Akimbo. Wearing his bathrobe and brandishing duel pistols, the young man has had enough. And he's not going to take it any more.

Jason Lei Howden directed this action comedy. Daniel Radcliffe just recently wrapped the project in New Zealand. Here, we see Radcliffe being approached by a police office in the midst of what could be a very manic surrender.

The movie features a city-wide game of death that Daniel Radcliffe's character suddenly finds himself thrust into. He must save his ex-girlfriend from kidnappers as he finds his mundane existence being uprooted by a dark social media movement.

Jason Lei Howden is known for his amazingly epic New Zealand horror metal comedy Deathgasm, which is one of the best genre movies of this decade, whether you've bothered to see it or not.

Chloë Grace Moretz Nixed ‘Regressive’ Studio Films, Which Led Her to Career-Best ‘Cameron Post’

Chloë Grace Moretz Nixed ‘Regressive’ Studio Films, Which Led Her to Career-Best ‘Cameron Post’
“I had a moment two years ago when I was super unhappy with the projects I was putting out,” actress Chloë Grace Moretz said at a Provincetown Film Festival event earlier this year. “I had a really rough time with the studio system and trying to get questions answered. I was confronted with these aggressively large hurdles and I was like — ‘I’m tired of trying to hurdle a system which is set up for me to fail.'”

At 21, Moretz spoke with the world-weary wisdom of that battle-hardened show business veteran that she is. After becoming a successful child actor, Moretz parlayed a string of pulpy horror movies into a career as one of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood. She moved into accessible comedies with “500 Days of Summer,” “Hugo,” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” and returned to artier horror like “Let Me In” and “Carrie.

Netflix Announces Full Slate of Millarworld Movies and TV Shows

Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, today announced its first slate of films and series based on the stories of Mark Millar. Netflix acquired Millar's company, Millarworld, last year and since then has been developing projects with Mark and Lucy Millar, including The Magic Order, which has been published as Netflix's first comic book and was the biggest selling new comic-book franchise in nearly 20 years.

These are writers and directors I've privately been sending fan-mail to over the last eighteen

Nicolas Cage To Get Another Shot At The Marvel Universe In ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’

It’s no secret that actor Nicolas Cage loves superheroes. The actor even goes by the name Cage due to his love of Marvel hero Luke Cage. Cage has been linked to superhero franchises throughout the years, coming close to being Superman in Tim Burton’s aborted film and finally getting to wear a superhero costume in both the Matthew Vaughn film “Kick-Ass” and the incredibly awful “Ghost Rider.” But in 2018, it appears that Cage is finally getting another chance at the Marvel universe.

Chloe Grace Moretz rules out a Hit-Girl return after the way Kick-Ass 2 was handled

Last week, it was announced that Matthew Vaughn is looking to reboot the Kick-Ass franchise through his newly-established Marv Studios, as well as developing a solo film based around the character of Hit-Girl.

The lethal young crimefighter was played by Chloe Grace Moretz in Vaughn’s Kick-Ass and its 2013 sequel, but it seems that won’t be the case in the proposed solo movie, as Moretz has revealed that she has no interest in reprising the role.

“I love the franchise, I think the first movie was really, really special,” said Moretz (via IndieWire). “I wish the second one had been handled in a little bit of a different way. Because I think we were all kind of looking forward to something a little different than what happened with it all. As much as I love the character of Hit-Girl, I think she lives and survives in Kick-Ass, and I

Chloe Grace Moretz Wishes ‘Kick-Ass 2’ Was Handled Differently And Won’t Be Back For A Third

Chloe Grace Moretz Wishes ‘Kick-Ass 2’ Was Handled Differently And Won’t Be Back For A Third
Before “Deadpool” changed the game for R-rated superhero movies in 2016, Matthew Vaughn‘s adaption of Mark Millar‘s R-rated comic book “Kick-Ass” set the stage in 2010. It featured profanity, sex, drugs, excessive violence, and rock and roll. Perhaps the best part of “Kick-Ass,” however, was the young Chloe Grace Moretz‘s Hit-Girl, a trained assassin whose bite was far louder than her bark.

Chloë Grace Moretz Doesn't Want a Kick-ass 3 and isn't Interested in Playing Hit-Girl Again

Turns out, Chloë Grace Moretz wasn't a fan of Kick-Ass 2 and isn't interested in a Kick-Ass 3. She also doesn't seem to want to reprise her role of Hit-Girl. I actually liked the second Kick-Ass movie and I'd like to see the story continue with these two versions of the main characters, but that's not happening. While talking at the Provincetown Film Festival (via Indiewire), Moretz said:

"I wish the second one had been handled in a little bit of a different way. Because I think we were all kind of looking forward to something a little different than what happened with it all.

As much as I love the character of Hit-Girl, I think she lives and survives in Kick-Ass, and I kind of want to keep her there. I kinda wanna keep everyone’s mind in Kick-Ass. So I don’t think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, at
