‘Shazam!’ Funko POP Toys Spoil a Key Plot Point and Confirm Rumor

When Warner Bros. and DC gave Aquaman a December 2018 release date, it was clear that the focus would be on that film for the final part of the year. But it’s been over a month since that film splashed down in theaters, and attention is slowly turning back to Shazam!, the studio’s next major superhero movie. As the Zachary Levi-fronted comedy approaches its release date, a pair of Funko Pop! toys have seemingly spoiled one of the movie’s key plot points and confirmed a rumor that first popped u...

‘Deadpool 3’ is Aiming to “Go in a Completely Different Direction,” Says Ryan Reynolds

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Could’ve Had a Scene With Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland

In early December, we wrote about how former Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was once in consideration to play Peter B. Parker in Sony’s Oscar-nominated animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. That role as an older, out of shape web-slinger eventually went to New Girl actor Jake Johnson, but Maguire wasn’t the only former Spider-Man to be on a wishlist for the acclaimed animated feature. It turns out that Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and Tom ...

‘Highlander’ Reboot Still in the Works, Might Become a TV Series

Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick films, has been attached to a potential Highlander reboot since 2016, but we’ve heard very little on the project over the years. Now, ahead of the release if John Wick: Chapter 3, Stahelski has offered an update: he still very much wants to make the reboot, but he wants to make sure he gets the complex mythology correct. That might mean creating a TV series instead of a movie. Highlander spawned six movies, three TV shows, comic books, video games, a...

‘The Kid Who Would Be King’ Review: ‘Attack the Block’ Director Joe Cornish Returns With a Perfectly Fine Family Adventure

An old-fashioned streak of adventure runs throughout The Kid Who Would Be King , a riff on the King Arthur legend gussied up for modern times. It’s a decent enough family film, largely dependent on the charm of its young cast, that manages to be slightly disappointing only if you recognize the name of its writer/director. That would be Joe Cornish, whose directorial debut Attack the Block was a blast of fresh air back in 2011. Inexplicably, it’s taken Cornish the better part of a decade t...
