Disney/Fox Deal is Done, But Don’t Expect to See X-Men in the MCU Anytime Soon

Well, it happened. Disney’s acquisition of key 21st Century Fox entertainment assets has officially gone through, and we are now living in a post-Fox world. One of Hollywood’s long-standing studios has just been swallowed whole. Thousands of jobs are at risk. It’s a dark day. Some will claim that this is a necessary step in these tumultuous times, and a certain section of fandom will take a bizarre solace in the fact that at least this acquisition means that they’ll get to see the Fantastic Fou...

New Blu-ray Releases: ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’, ‘Aquaman’, ‘Mary Poppins Returns’, ‘Willard’

In our latest Blu-ray round-up, we have two of the best superhero movies from last year, a well-intentioned but slightly forgettable Disney musical sequel, and Crispin Glover chilling out and freaking out with his some rats. These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse “Anyone can wear the mask. You can wear the mask. If you didn’t know that before, I hope you do now.” With that bit of dialogue...

‘Hellboy’ Clip Invites Hellboy to The Osiris Club to Face a Giant Problem

The first official Hellboy clip has been released, and if you’re already on the fence with this movie, I don’t know if this is going to change that. Here, Trevor Bruttenholm (Ian McShane), adoptive father of Hellboy (David Harbour), lays out a new mission for the big, red demon/superhero. Through it all, Hellboy talks with his mouth full, which is kind of gross. Watch the Hellboy clip below! Hellboy Clip Every new piece of Hellboy footage looks more disappointing than the last. Just wha...

‘Game Night’ Directors Get ‘The Creeps’ at Universal, But What Does This Mean for ‘The Flash’?

Jonathan Goldstein (right) and John Francis Daley were behind last year’s outstanding comedic thriller Game Night, a movie that deserved far more recognition than it received. Since then, we’ve been waiting to see what’s going on with their take on The Flash, but it sounds like another project has the potential to get off the ground before then, and it will take them into a new genre. Deadline reports Universal Pictures has picked up a new comedic horror pitch called The Creeps from Jonathan ...

Russo Brothers Confirm They’re Misleading Audiences Again With ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailers

When it comes to Marvel movie trailers, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that we shouldn’t believe what we see. Spider-Man was hidden from an airport fight shot in the Captain America: Civil War trailer, the Thor: Ragnarok trailers faked out audiences by including a key shot of Thor with both of his eyes, and an Avengers: Infinity War trailer threw us off by including a shot of Hulk running with Team Wakanda that never even appeared in the film. Now directors Anthony and Joe Russo have confir...

Marvel’s Black Widow Movie Adds ‘Fighting with My Family’ Star Florence Pugh

With the exception of Spider-Man: Far From Home, we’re still mostly in the dark about the plans Marvel Studios has after Avengers: Endgame. There have been rumblings about movies adapting lesser known Marvel Comics characters such as The Eternals and Shang Chi, and James Gunn was just brought back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Sequels have also been assumed for the likes of Black Panther and Doctor Strange, but we have no solid idea of when these movies will arrive. However, it sounds lik...

Kevin Feige Calls the First 22 Movies in the MCU “The Infinity Saga,” Says ‘Endgame’ Will Focus on the Original Core Avengers

Geeks love having specific names and labels for the various corners of the universes they love. So Marvel Studios seemed to directly touch our hearts (because they’re nothing if not crafty) when they revealed that each grouping of films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe belong to a “phase.” And with Phase 3 coming to an end next month with Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has offered up another name over which we can totally obsess: The Infinity Saga, which seems to be...

James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ is a “Total Reboot,” According to Producer Peter Safran

Last week, the best news of the year came with word that Disney and Marvel Studios had reversed their decision to remove James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The filmmaker will return to the franchise that he originated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but before that, James Gunn will have to make good on his deal to enter the DC Extended Universe with The Suicide Squad. The Suicide Squad has been referred to as the sequel to the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, but according...

How ‘Wolverine: The Lost Trail’ is Blazing the Trail for the New Medium of Podcast Audio Dramas

In a cramped, soundproofed room, Richard Armitage is ordering a drink. Or rather, he’s ordering a drink as Logan, aka Wolverine, the lead character in the upcoming Marvel and Stitcher podcast drama, Wolverine: The Lost Trail. Standing around a cheap IKEA table and clinking glasses full of water, Armitage and co-star Rodney Henry, who plays a young teen named Marcus Baptiste from New Orleans, read from the scripts on the iPads they have in hand, as if rehearsing for a stage play. Except they do ...

‘Captain Marvel’ Favorite Goose the Cat Gets the Purrfect Funko POP Figures

Captain Marvel is only in its second weekend at the box office (which added considerably more cash to the movie’s haul), but it’s already a certified hit. Even though Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are the stars, there’s one breakout character that fans can’t get enough of, and they’re not human. It’s Goose the cat, and the little feline is getting a pair of new Funko POP figures that fans of Captain Marvel are going to love. But if you want to see them, beware of spoilers. ...

Ezra Miller Teams Up With Grant Morrison To Pen ‘The Flash’ Script in Creative Clash With Directors

The Flash‘s long and troubled race to the big screen could be cut short. Warner Bros. finds itself at an impasse between star and directors as Ezra Miller, who stole the scenes as the Scarlet Speedster in Batman v. Superman and Justice League, is teaming up with DC Comics guru Grant Morrison to pen his own The Flash script, in direct competition with directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. And with Miller’s holding deal on The Flash soon to reportedly expire, this might be the last...

‘A Knight’s Tale’ Director to Bring ‘Button Man’ Movie Adaptation to Netflix

Brian Helgeland, the Oscar-winning writer of L.A. Confidential, is getting back behind the camera to direct for the first time in four years. Helgeland will direct Button Man for Netflix, a film adaptation of a comic about a hired killer who rebels against a bloody underground sport. Drive and The Neon Demon director Nicolas Winding Refn was in talks to direct this back in 2012, but that version never came to light; now Helgeland will direct and Matt Reeves will produce.

Rupert Wyatt Compares His Abandoned ‘Gambit’ Movie to ‘The Godfather’

So often with superhero movies, it becomes a series of “what if’s?” What if this actor had signed on the play Superman? What if this movie had never bombed? But in the case of Gambit, the long-gestating comic book movie is one big case of “what if?” The film has had a veritable revolving door of directors, including Rise of the Planet of the Apes filmmaker Rupert Wyatt, who first signed on to helm Gambit in 2015. But Wyatt’s ambitious vision for the film was abandoned when the director left the...

‘Captain Marvel’ Original Ending Revealed (And Why the Final One Works a Lot Better)

With her wildly successful first solo movie Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers immediately established herself as the most powerful and experienced superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saving the world since 1995. But the origin movie presents the MCU with one problem: explaining where Carol has been for the past 20 years. The onscreen conclusion of Captain Marvel goes on to show this, but editor Debbie Berman revealed that the Captain Marvel original ending was almost completely different. S...

Marvel Adjusted the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Poster to Include Danai Gurira’s Name

Well, this has to be a first. After online backlash arose surrounding the absence of Danai Gurira‘s name on the top of the Avengers: Endgame poster, Marvel put together a new poster to include her. This is not something that typically happens, so it’s worth bringing attention to. The question is: will this now be the real, official poster, or is it something Marvel did for use online to stymie more backlash? She should have been up there all this time. Check out the official Marvel Studios&...

‘Pet Sematary’ and ‘Shazam’ Early Box Office Tracking Promises a Solid Start for April

Summer blockbuster season is just around the corner, and it seems like it’ll be starting even earlier than usual this year with the spring releases of two very different, eagerly anticipated new movies arriving next month. Shazam! expands the DC Comics offerings on the big screen with a much lighter superhero story that takes some cues from the comedy classic Big. Meanwhile, the new take on Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is looking to give us some scares before the summer gets overtaken with explo...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Breakdown: Whatever It Takes…to Keep the Secrets Intact

This morning, Marvel Studios shook up a normal Thursday with a surprise trailer drop for Avengers: Endgame. Since we’ve only had a short theatrical teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot for the movie, fans were excited to finally get a good solid look at some brand spankin’ new footage. However, since Marvel is playing things so close to the vest, they cleverly utilized footage from the previous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to pad it out. Even so, we still got a good minute and a half ...

‘Short Term 12’ Director Destin Daniel Cretton to Helm Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi’

Marvel Studios has often reached into the independent film world to pluck talented filmmakers for their superhero movies, and they’ve done it again with their Shang-Chi director.

Cretton previously directed Short Term 12, the 2013 indie that starred Brie Larson, Rami Malek, Lakeith Stanfield, and more.

Abandoned ‘Captain Marvel’ Post-Credits Scene Almost Tied Back to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Instead

After Avengers: Infinity War only gave us one credits scene, Captain Marvel returns to the Marvel Studios standard of having both a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. As we discussed last weekend, the mid-credits scene is a big set-up for Avengers: Endgame, and the post-credits scene is a fun little coda following the events of Captain Marvel. But directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden almost had an alternate Captain Marvel credits scene that tied back to Thor: Ragnarok. Beware of spoiler...

Noah Hawley Shares ‘Doctor Doom’ Movie Plot Details Even As Film Stays in Limbo

Two years after Noah Hawley dropped the bomb that he was developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox, the comic book movie remains in limbo. The ever-busy Legion showrunner has only accumulated more projects in the interim, while a big question mark remains around Fox’s superhero properties in the face of the impending Disney-Fox deal. But while the film stalls indefinitely, despite a constructive meeting with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Hawley dropped a few more Doctor Doom m...
