‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Sequel Officially Swings into Production

Even though plenty of animated projects have been able to continue production after the coronavirus pandemic shut down the film and television industry around the world, Sony Pictures still ended up pushing back the release date for the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel by six months, all the way back to the fall of 2022.

Hartley Sawyer, an actor who has played Ralph Dibny, aka Elongated Man, on The Flash since season 4, has been fired from The CW series.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Almost Had One of the Avengers be the Soul Stone

Last night, there was an Avengers: Endgame watch party featuring the involvement of directors Anthony & Joe Russo.

James Gunn Says There Won’t Be a ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 4’, Calls Harley Quinn His Favorite Character He’s Written

James Gunn recently confirmed that both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 were still on track to meet their intended release dates.

Thankfully, The Suicide Squad is being worked on remotely in post-production, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t slated to start shooting for a long time. Even so, Gunn took the time to tease both movies by...

‘The Batman’ Plot May Be Inspired By ‘The Long Halloween,’ Teases Star Jeffrey Wright

The plot of Matt Reeves’ The Batman is still fairly cloaked in mystery, but the director and stars continue to hint at what the latest Caped Crusader outing will entail. Here’s what we know: Robert Pattinson will don the cape and cowl in an adventure that takes place early on in Batman’s career, taking him face-to-face with familiar rogues like Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz), the Riddler (Paul Dano), and Penguin (Colin Farrell). But what comic adventure could possibly provide the template for a story f...

‘Venom 2’ Set Photo Reveals Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady with a Much Better Wig

When Venom came to a close, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) came face-to-face with Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson) and all of his curly red-haired glory. The vicious criminal gave us the oh-so-very subtle tease of his future as the super villain Carnage in this comic book universe (which may or may not be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?) with the line, “ When I get out of here, and I will, there’s gonna be carnage.” Now it seems we have confirmation of the character’s escape in the first Venom 2...

New ‘New Mutants’ Trailer Coming in January, Implying the Movie Might Actually Be Released Some Day

But maybe, just maybe, those New Mutants will have their day. According to Boone, a new New Mutants trailer is going to drop sometime in January.

HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Demonstrates the Right Way to “Remix” a Classic

Last year, when showrunner Damon Lindelof posted a letter to Instagram about his upcoming Watchmen series for HBO, he classified it as a “remix.” On the one hand, this was good news for fans who were trepidatious about seeing the greatest comic book story of all time receive another direct sequel or adaptation. On the other hand, remixes already dominate the dance floor in Hollywood. When creators and critics use that word now, it either feels like industry code for a thinly disguised remake (a...
