The Film Adaptation of Mask Will Be Helmed By Straight Outta Compton Director F. Gary Gray

Paramount Picture and Hasbro are finally ready to move forward on their big screen adaptation of the classic 80s cartoon series Mask! They've hired The Fate of the Furious and Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray to helm the film and I think he's a solid choice to take on the franchise. 

Paramount has had this film project in the pipeline for years and I'm excited to see that the studio is ready to finally do something with it! I loved this cartoon series when I was a kid and I have lots of wonderful memories of playing with the action figures.

She’s battled against Matt Murdock’s Kingpin, being bitten by the Venom symbiote, and teamed up with fellow webslinger warriors Silk and Spider-Woman, and now the Earth-65 version of Gwen Stacy is set to face her biggest challenge yet – according to Marvel’s press release – in the upcoming Spider-Gwen #34. Here’s the cover artwork from Robbi Rodriguez…

“All I can say is it’s been an incredible journey,” said series writer Jason Latour. “A little itch in the back of our minds became a one shot that lasted 41 issues as of issue #34, spanned across nearly every form of media, and inspired countless cosplayers and artists. Gwen Stacy changed our lives forever – and now she gives us one last gift – the chance to wrap her story up the way we always intended.”

New Mutants Star Calls It a Scary, Full-Fledged Horror Movie

New Mutants Star Calls It a Scary, Full-Fledged Horror Movie
The New Mutants is currently undergoing reshoots and Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton is declaring that it will be a "full-fledged" horror movie set in the X-Men universe. However, New Mutants didn't originally start that way, even if the first trailer led viewers to believe that it was. The new intense reshoots have pushed the film back almost a year and a half to completely reshape it into a horror movie, according to sources, and it seems that this will be the scariest thing to ever come out of the X-Men universe.

In a new interview, Charlie Heaton, who portrays Cannonball, confirmed that New Mutants is going to be something pretty unique. The actor obviously can't say much about the highly anticipated movie, but what he does say is very intriguing to say the least. Heaton goes on to say that New Mutants will be the "scariest thing we've seen

Tom Hardy Is Unrecognizable as Al Capone in Sneak Peek at ‘Fonzo’ (Photo)
In true Tom Hardy fashion, he’s fully immersing himself in his new role for “Chronicle” and “Fantastic Four” director Josh Trank’s Al Capone film “Fonzo.”

The “Dark Knight” and “Dunkirk” actor has been sharing some photos from the set of the film. And he’s almost unrecognizable as the prohibition-era crime boss. Like most Hardy flicks, this one also looks like it’s going to be intense.

“Fonzo” was announced back in October 2016 with Hardy set to star. Trank wrote the script and is directing the film, which is suppose to explore the mobster’s life at 47 years old, after being released from prison. Capone (Hardy) will be forced to consider his violent and reprehensible actions as his mind is ravaged by dementia.

The movie has been stuck in the development stage for a while, according to reports. Filming was initially scheduled to start in the summer of 2017, but Hardy instead went to shoot “Venom” for Sony, which is set for an Oct. 5 release.

Now that filming on “Fonzo” has started, Hardy is giving us a glimpse of what to expect. See more photos:

Tom Hardy In The "Trees"

Development continues on writer Warren Ellis' science fiction, Image Comics' title "Trees" as a dramatic TV series for co-producer, actor Tom Hardy ("Venom"):

"...ten years after they landed. All over the world. And they did nothing, standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if there were no-one here and nothing under foot. 

"Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognize us as intelligent or alive..."

‘Fonzo’ Behind-the-Scenes: Tom Hardy Shares Photos of Dramatic Al Capone Transformation
Tom Hardy has played historical figures on screen in the past, but it looks like his upcoming role as Al Capone in the biographical drama “Fonzo” will be one of his most transformative true roles yet. Production is currently underway in New Orleans on the biopic, which is being directed by “Fantastic Four” and “Chronicle” filmmaker Josh Trank. Hardy has been sharing behind-the-scenes photos from the “Fonzo” production on his Instagram page.

“Fonzo” takes place 10 years into Capone’s prison sentence. The 47-year-old gangster begins suffering from dementia and becomes haunted by his violent past. Joining Hardy on screen is Linda Cardellini, Matt Dillon, Kyle McLachlan, and “Dunkirk” breakout Jack Lowden.

The production is notable for being Trank’s first since “Fantastic Four.” The director feuded with studio 20th Century Fox over final cut privileges and reshoots and bashed the film’s theatrical release in a since-deleted Tweet that claimed

What Will Tom Hardy’s Venom Look Like?

Sony’s taking a big risk with Venom, their first foray into stand-alone films starring Spider-Man’s rogues gallery, but not the wall-crawler himself. Like the upcoming Silver & Black, Venom may or may not be set in the McU. There’s a lot riding on the Ruben Fleischer-directed film, as it’s one of very few R-rated superhero films, and one of fewer still which focuses on a primarily villainous character. Furthermore, Venom is a fan-favorite anti-hero, and his fanbase is very wary of attempts to translate him from the page to the screen; Sam Raimi played a key role in the modern superhero renaissance, and even he couldn’t quite nail the character. Fans generally rejected Topher Grace’s take on Eddie Brock in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, but Sony is giving it another shot.

Wonder Woman 2, Venom, The Lion King and First Man to feature IMAX sequences

Marvel Studios will make history this month when Avengers: Infinity War becomes the first movie to be shot entirely in IMAX, and it looks as though we’ll be seeing plenty of filmmakers employing the format over the coming years.

According to IMAX CEO Greg Foster, Ruben Fleischer has made use of the expanded aspect ratio for parts of Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff Venom, while Patty JenkinsWonder Woman 2, Jon Favreau’s The Lion King and Damien Chazelle’s First Man will all be using IMAX cameras for certain sequences.

“A key effort is the use of IMAX cameras and expanded aspect ratio, specially formatted, if you will, for IMAX releases,” said Foster (via MSN). “Our best example of this is anything related to Chris Nolan, who has perfected this strategy for both his films and our benefit. On that front, we’ve seen many in the next

Spider-Man PS4 Developers Won’t Rule Out Venom

Insomniac and Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 exclusive is firing on all cylinders at the moment. With the recent batch of brand new screenshots, gameplay details, fresh footage and even a firm release date, the California-based developer is really beginning to step up its marketing drive for their upcoming web-slinging open-world adventure. And truth be told, it’s shaping up pretty well. One question that does seem to be on many fans’ minds though is a simple one: Will Venom make an appearance in Insomniac’s upcoming superhero video game?

Well, don’t count out the Black Suit just yet, as Game Informer revealed that when Spider-Man Creative Director Brian Intihar was asked specifically about Venom’s possible involvement, he coyly remarked that, “Venom was a cool character.” Sure, that’s by no means any sort of confirmation that he’s in the game, but it’s not a concrete denial either,

Patty Jenkins Plans To Shoot Wonder Woman 2 With IMAX Cameras

Not since Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has a Dceu movie incorporated native IMAX scenes. But that’s all about to change thanks to Wonder Woman 2.

While running the rule over Warner Bros.’ 2019 slate, Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX, confirmed that “select sequences” of Diana’s next solo adventure will be captured for the large-screen format, rather than being digitally remastered during post.

Foster made the announcement at a recent earnings call (h/t Batman-News), where the company’s head honcho acknowledged the decision to incorporate IMAX into the sequel’s design.

I’m excited to announce that Wonder Woman 2, which comes out in the second half of 2019, will be shot with IMAX film cameras in select sequences. This Warner Brothers DC production, the sequel of the global juggernaut from 2017, is directed by Patty Jenkins and produced by Chuck Roven and Rebecca Oakley Roven. And we couldn

RoboCop returns to comics with Citizens Arrest, check out a preview here

RoboCop returns to comic books this coming Wednesday courtesy of Boom! Studios, which launches the new series RoboCop: Citizens Arrest. Check out a preview of the first issue here…

Brian Wood, the visionary writer behind Dmz and Briggs Land, and Jorge Coelho (Venom, Rocket Raccoon) present a provocative vision of a future where justice is crowdsourced… and lethal.

It’s been decades since the RoboCop program first began. Corporations have taken over the schools and the government—and law enforcement is the biggest private contract of all.

Traditional police forces no longer exist as all citizens are encouraged—and rewarded—to spy on their neighbors. There is only one authority on the streets: Robocop.

Robocop: Citizens Arrest #1 is out on April 11th, priced $3.99.

No, Infinity War Isn't the Last Avengers Movie . . . Not by a Long Shot

For Marvel fans, there's nothing more goosebump-inducing than hearing the Avengers' theme song. When the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was released, I couldn't help but have flashbacks to my childhood. If you don't keep up with the latest Marvel news, you may be wondering: Is Infinity War the last Avengers movie? Don't worry, the Marvel reign is not ready to let up.

Staying updated on the Marvel universe can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. The studio has the rights to over 7,000 characters, so the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) could potentially be rolling out movies for generations to come. If you're late to the Marvel train, it's only just hitting its 10th anniversary this year. 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Iron Man, and almost a decade later the success of the McU is far superior to any other franchise in Hollywood.

Carnage co-creator reacts to rumours of Woody Harrelson casting in Venom

Rumours have resurfaced regarding Woody Harrelson portraying Carnage in the upcoming Venom movie, and now the character’s co-creator has weighed in with his thoughts.

Not much is known about Tom Hardy’s Venom, and with just one trailer so far released fans are certainly keen to speculate about what might occur in the film starring the popular Spider-Man villain.

So rumours that Woody Harreslon might be playing Carnage in the film are certainly exciting, but what does co-creator of the character David Michelinie think about all this?

Well, when asked on Facebook about his opinion on the potential of a Woody Harrelson version of Carnage, Michelinie said:”Harrelson’s a good actor, and has a decent range. He’s played nutso characters in the past, but I guess we’ll have to wait until October to see just how far he can ramp it up. Fingers crossed.”

Carnage Co-Creator Chimes In On Recent Venom/Woody Harrelson Rumors

Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady? It’s certainly not out of the equation.

This past weekend, we brought you the news that Harrelson, star of True Detective and The Hunger Games, had been tipped to play the villainous Carnage in Ruben Fleischer’s upcoming Venom movie.

It was a rumor that was met with a great deal of suspicion right out of the gate, as many had assumed that the role of Cletus Kasady, Eddie Brock’s one true nemesis, had fallen into the hands of Riz Ahmed. Alas, there’s been nary a mention of an official announcement from Sony, but thanks to Facebook (h/t, we now know David Michelinie’s thoughts on the situation.

You may recognize Michelinie’s name as the co-creator behind Carnage, so it’s fair to say that he knows a thing or two about what makes Kasady tick – even if
