The Last Word on ‘Wonder Woman’

Okay, before I get to everything else, what the hell is with these superhero movies like “Wonder Woman” rewriting history? Like-, c’mon- okay, alternative future, fine, I get that. Alternative parallel present world where now superheroes exists, okay, that I can get behind, but now both Marvel and DC, multiple times, are now taking superheroes into the past, and placing them in history. That is stupid. I don’t care how well it’s pulled off, the whole point of superheroes is that we’re imagining a fictional world in which there are now a group of people greater than humans exist in the world that are capable of amazing feats, that we can only imagine. When you put those characters in the past, we can’t imagine ’cause now they’re there and history would then be changed. Why would there be a world where World War II happened,

Spring For the Large Popcorn; Black Panther Is Freakin' Long

Have your popcorn and soda ready for the Black Panther movie! Like its siblings, Marvel's latest installment is one of this year's lengthier blockbusters. Within the Marvel universe, Black Panther is in a league of its own. In addition to having an enormously stacked cast (seriously, we're in love with Chadwick Boseman), the movie will give us a closer look at Wakanda's society, which means there will be plenty of time devoted to worldbuilding. Not that we even mind, since seeing all of the sleek action sequences and cool gizmos will be worth keeping our theater seats warm. Clocking in at two hours and 14 minutes, Black Panther isn't the longest Marvel movie (though it's pretty darn close) - The Avengers takes the cake with a running time of two hours and 23 minutes. It is, however, the longest Marvel solo debut. According to IMDb, it ties with X-Men 2 in terms of length,

Rose Byrne’s Moira MacTaggert won’t be in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Just as she did with X-Men: Days of Future Past, it seems that X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Apocalypse star Rose Byrne will be sitting out the next – and possibly final – instalment of 20th Century Fox’s main X-Men series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

“Unfortunately, Moira MacTaggert is not showing up,” Byrne told CinemaBlend . “I wish she was. I had such fun on X-Men: Apocalypse. I love that cast. It is a really fun, what do you call it? Superhero film… ensemble exactly. I can’t wait to see what [Jessica Chastain] does, cause I’m such a fan.”

Moira MacTaggert may be absent, but writer-director Simon Kinberg has previously revealed that the movie will have a heavy focus on its female characters, which includes Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Jessica Chastain’s mystery villain, referred to in the first look photos as ‘Smith’.

Kevin Bacon Is The Reverse-Flash On Sweet-Looking Flashpoint Fan Art

With Justice League failing to meet financial expectations at the box office, it’s forced many of us to ponder the future of the DC Extended Universe. And regardless of said gross, it’s the hope of many – this writer included – that we continue to see new territory being charted that, of course, includes heroes and villains who’ve not had much exposure on the big screen.

Taking those financial shortcomings into consideration, I’m not ashamed to admit that I was surprised to see Warner Bros. are seemingly all for proceeding with a Flashpoint movie. I mean, the Scarlet Speedster is long overdue for some exposure on the silver screen, but anyone remotely familiar with Geoff Johns’ game-changing comic book of the same name is well aware of how it also includes alternate takes on Batman, Superman, Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and even Shazam. In other words, it’d

Pacific Rim Uprising helmer wants to see Zack Snyder directing Man of Steel 2

While it’s never officially been confirmed by Warner Bros. as being in development, rumours of a sequel to Man of Steel have been circulating widely for the past couple of years, with the likes of Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) and George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road) linked to the director’s chair.

Responding to a fan question on Twitter, Pacific Rim Uprising helmer Steven S. DeKnight was asked if he had any interest in directing Man of Steel 2, with his response of ‘Up, up and away!’ leading to articles linking him to the sequel. But, as he subsequently clarified, his preference would be to see Zack Snyder back behind the camera:

Former Marvel Director Thinks Zack Snyder Should Helm Man Of Steel 2

Whatever the reaction to 2017’s Justice League, the DC movie universe is clearly not fading from the big screen any time soon. There are far too many titles in various stages of development, far too many popular characters available to play with, and far too many hopes pinned on the latest studio staffing re-shuffle for the franchise to end on that note. What is becoming clear, though, is that greater attention – by fans and, apparently, the studio – is being paid to a Man of Steel 2. Unsurprisingly – given the Justice League debacle – the biggest emphasis currently seems to be on identifying a potential director.

For a while, it was Matthew Vaughn’s name that seemed to top most lists. This was not a nonsensical idea, with his comic book movie credentials are fairly impressive, with Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle all featuring prominently on his directing resume.

Hans Zimmer Set To Score ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’

Legendary film composer Hans Zimmer is set to return to the superhero genre to score X-Men: Dark Phoenix for 20th Century Fox. Zimmer is known for his work on the DC movies, including Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, Man Of Steel and collaborating with Junkie Xl on Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

The news of Zimmer’s involvement in the next X-Men movie comes from Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in the franchise, over on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

Here’s the segment of the Peters interview from the podcast.

“I think the film is gonna be incredible. Hans Zimmer’s scoring it—I don’t know if I was supposed to say that or not. Simon has surrounded himself with incredible people, and Simon knows this world better than anybody, so it was just cool to see him—he’s so happy and in his element in that world,

The Last Word on ‘X-Men: First Class’

I must admit I’ve never been the biggest fan of ‘X-Men.’ I first heard about them when they had the Saturday morning cartoon show in the ’90s, which I didn’t care for. I then learned about the comic books, and went a little deeper into the stories of the ‘X-Men,’ which took forever. There’s so many characters and heroes, that it takes three years of comic books before something ever actually happens. (At least that’s what every fan always told me) This is also, I imagine why there’s been so many movies of the series in recent years. I saw the first ‘X-Men,’ movie years ago, and thought it was, okay.

The second film, I liked, but, it wasn’t anything I would particularly brag about. I haven’t seen ‘X-Men 3,’ of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ yet. Which is also something that’s always bugged me (Well,

X-Men Producer Would Be Happy to Work with Marvel and Kevin Feige

While 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise is looking stronger than ever, with three movies hitting theaters (The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix) this year, the long-term future of the series remains uncertain. Last month, Disney purchased 20th Century Fox in a deal worth $52 billion that, when the deal is finalized sometime in 2019, will ultimately bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During a recent interview, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner was asked how she'd feel about working with her former protege, Kevin Feige. Here's what the producer had to say.

"Sure, why not? Look, it's 18 months away, so who knows. For me, I think Bob Iger is one of the smartest men in the country. Alan Horn's an old friend. Kevin Feige was my intern and assistant and then my associate producer on the first X-Men. Kevin and I started the X-Men together,

Caleb Landry Jones: ‘Working with Frances McDormand terrified me’

Hollywood’s ‘go-to oddball’ on his new movie, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, his intense acting style and why Syd Barrett is his guy

Texas-born actor Caleb Landry Jones, 28, has been called Hollywood’s “go-to oddball”. After making his screen debut in 2007 in the Coen brothers’ No Country For Old Men, he appeared in the TV series Friday Night Lights, played Banshee in X-Men: First Class and was the lead in Antiviral, by Brandon (son of David) Cronenberg, playing a man who traffics in “celebrity viruses”. In 2017, he appeared in the hit horror comedy Get Out as well as The Florida Project and Twin Peaks: The Return. Now he stars alongside Frances McDormand in Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri as Red, a small-town advertising man caught up in a woman’s quest for justice.

Magneto Gets Captured in New Look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Magneto Gets Captured in New Look at X-Men: Dark Phoenix
It looks like Magneto isn't going to be having his best day in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The future of the X-Men franchise is a bit uncertain, given the recent Disney purchase of Fox. But X-Men: Dark Phoenix is definitely coming out and is set to hit theaters on November 11. The movie will hopefully manage to make up for the disaster that was X-Men: The Last Stand. Now, a brand new image of Michael Fassbender's Magneto in Dark Phoenix, in addition to some new plot details, have been revealed.

The image was released without a lot of context, but we see Magneto laying on a dark, cracked and broken landscape. He's also seen better days, looking rather beat up. There are several figures standing around him with guns and flashlights. Are the mutants going to be hunted like dogs by humans in X-Men: Dark Phoenix? Did Magneto do something to

New X-Men: Dark Phoenix Photos Tease Romance, Death And Jessica Chastain’s Villain

Though the future of the X-Men franchise is in doubt, now that Disney have purchased 20th Century Fox and likely plan to merge the mutants with the McU, there’s still at least one more mainline X-Men movie to come before that happens. Of course, we’re talking about Dark Phoenix, which we got our first look at last month and is once again making headlines, as some new images have arrived that further tease what we can expect.

The four stills seen below come from the latest issue of Empire Magazine and reveal three moments from the movie, as well as providing us with another shot of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. Speaking of which, it’s pretty clear at this point that Turner’s version of Phoenix will be portrayed as a nude, fiery-skinned entity. I guess now that Jessica Lawrence is wearing a costume as Mystique, one

Mark Millar Talks About Matthew Vaughn's Scrapped "Massive" and "Hopeful" Superman Trilogy

Director Matthew Vaughn has made quite a lucrative living out of making comic book movies. With films like Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, and the Kingsman under his belt he's been wanting to jump into the world of DC. We know that he's in talks to direct Man of Steel 2 along with several other possible properties. It seems like he's on a mission to want to save the DC movie universe.

Before all this came about, Vaughn and his frequent collaborator Mark Millar had plans for a Superman trilogy. They pitched their idea to Warner Bros. back in 2008, but it was ultimately scrapped.

Mark Millar was recently a guest on El Fanboy Podcast (via JoBlo) where he opened up about their Superman film concept for the first time saying:

“It was actually a massive, uplifting, hopeful thing. There’s no point doing Superman unless you feel good. You should walk out

Matthew Vaughn’s Original Superman Pitch Described As A “Big, Fun Epic”

It’s going on 10 years since Mark Miller and director Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman) collaborated on Kick-Ass, the subversive, hyper-violent comic book movie designed to flip the bird at the entire genre.

But in between orchestrating scenes of Red Mist and Hit-Girl shooting the shit, Vaughn confided his original Superman pitch to Mark Millar circa 2008, one which has now been described as an “epic” and “fun” take on the Man of Steel.

Word comes by way of Mario-Francisco Robles (via JoBlo), who interviewed Millar on the latest episode of the El Fanboy Podcast. At the outset, the decorated scribe addressed the latest developments between Warner Bros. and Matthew Vaughn, who would rather pump fresh blood into the fledgling DC Extended Universe than collaborate with Marvel, whose McU continues to go from strength to strength.

He and I are massive Superman fans. I mean, we worship Richard Donner. We love the Christopher Reeve movies.
