John Cena in Talks to Suit Up For James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’

Looks like writer/director James Gunn truly is using a similar formula with DC’s The Suicide Squad as he did with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – at least when it comes to casting. Gunn chose Dave Bautista, a former wrestler, to play one of the members of his ensemble in Guardians, and now a new report says that former wrestler John Cena is in talks to join returning players Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, and fellow newcomer Idris Elba in the ensemble cast of The Suicide Squad. ...

Cool Stuff: Matt Ferguson’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Print is Perfectly Balanced

Avengers: Endgame is almost upon us. But before we get to what might be the biggest blockbuster event of the year (with only Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to challenge it), let’s take a look back at last summer when we were all anticipating Avengers: Infinity War. When the Marvel Studios movie arrived in theaters last summer, it was quite the spectacle. And Odeon Cinemas in the United Kingdom offered up five different posters from artist Matt Ferguson that combined to form one single image o...

‘Dark Phoenix’ Trailer: Jean Grey Has the Space Madness

Now that 20th Century Fox has been bought by Disney, the Marvel Comics mutants known as the X-Men are back home at Marvel Studios. But before that, the studio will finish the initial series nearly 20 years later with the final installment of the franchise: Dark Phoenix. The only problem is that it’s retelling a story that we’ve already heard before, and much like the recent reboot of Hellboy, it doesn’t seem to be doing much to improve it in any way. Watch the new Dark Phoenix trailer below. ...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Spoilers Have Leaked, and the Russo Brothers Want You to Avoid Them

It was bound to happen, but no one predicted it would happen this soon. Someone, somewhere, went ahead and filmed a very early Avengers: Endgame screening on a cellphone, and then leaked the footage online. Which means there are Endgame spoilers all over the web. In the spirit of avoiding those spoilers, Endgame directors the Russo Brothers have released a letter to the fans urging them to not be a total jerk and spoil the big twists of Endgame for others. First, let me get this out of the w...

Mark Ruffalo Filmed an Unused Hulk Death Scene in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

The end of Avengers: Infinity War shocked audiences by killing off half of Earth’s mightiest heroes and most of the Guardians of the Galaxy. In just a couple weeks, Avengers: Endgame will show the remaining heroes dealing with the aftermath of Thanos using the Infinity Stones to wipe out half the universe, which includes a plan to kill Thanos and bring everyone back…somehow. But it sounds like the roster of surviving heroes was almost a little bit smaller. Mark Ruffalo recently revealed that ...

J.J. Abrams On Rey’s Parents: “There’s More to the Story” in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

It’s the question that’s been plaguing a section of Star Wars fans since The Force Awakens: who are Rey’s parents?

According to co-writer/director J.J. Abrams, “there’s more to the story” about Rey’s parents that will be revealed in this year’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Read his new quotes below.

Don Cheadle Talks ‘War Machine’ Movie That Never Happened and the Evolution of Rhodey in the MCU

Colonel James Rhodes has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the beginning. While it was Terrence Howard who played Tony Stark’s military buddy in the original Iron Man, the sequel brought in Don Cheadle as the character and they’ve never looked back. Though he’s now an integral part of The Avengers with his own suit of armor and weapons, there was a time when a War Machine movie would have let him take off on a solo adventure. While making the publicity rounds for Avengers: Endgam...

(Welcome to  Road to Endgame , where we revisit the first 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In this edition:  Thor: Ragnarok  reinvents the God of Thunder through a Maori  lens.) Thor’s first solo film, Thor , narrowly missed a coherent character arc. His second, Thor: The Dark World ,  didn’t give him one at all.

‘Y: The Last Man’ Loses Both Showrunners But Still Moves Forward at FX

A year after FX ordered a pilot adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s highly acclaimed comic series Y: The Last Man, showrunners Aida Mashaka Croal and Michael Green announced that they are parting ways with the project. But this won’t be the last you’ll be hearing of the series. FX is reportedly still moving forward with the long-gestating series that the network first began developing in 2015.

‘Hellboy’ and ‘Missing Link’ Bomb From a ‘Little’ Competition at Weak Weekend Box Office

This weekend’s Hellboy box office was…well, hell. The Neil Marshall-helmed comic book reboot was met with the cold shoulder from audiences on its opening weekend, earning $12 million, beneath reigning champ Shazam! and the Regina Hall comedy Little. But it wasn’t the only anticipated new film to be beaten by a Little competition. Laika’s Missing Link, which earned rave reviews and followed up the stop-motion animation studio’s Oscar-nominated Kubo and the Two Strings, also flopped at the box of...

‘Cloak and Dagger’ Offers an Origin Story for Mayhem With “Shadow Selves”

This week’s Cloak and Dagger episode, “Shadow Selves,” was the origin story for Mayhem we needed. But it was also more than that—it was a study of how the emotion of mayhem can actually be used for good when it’s channeled in the right way. The episode also gave us our first internal look at the Darkforce Dimension.   Let’s dive into what we learned about Mayhem this week. Roxxon plus trauma equals disaster Roxxon chemicals are dangerous enough on their own. But they’re even more da...

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a…mouse? With the movie industry saturated with superheroes, you’d be forgiven for rolling your eyes at the prospect of a new one hitting the scene. But what if that new hero was in fact one of the oldest superheroes in American pop culture history? And he’s a mouse?
