Could Channing Tatum Direct ‘Gambit’?

If Channing Tatum plays his cards right, he could add “director” to his long and colorful resume. But that’s if luck is a lady to Gambit, the long-gestating 20th Century Fox superhero movie that has seen a revolving door of directors while Tatum grew out his hair to no avail. With Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox ongoing, it seemed like Gambit was out for the count. But a new report about Tatum’s departure from his longtime talent agency suggests that Gambit may see action after all. ...

‘Glass’ Spoiler Review: Breaking Down M. Night Shyamalan’s Disastrous Sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’

“Please enjoy this film that took 19 years to make!” This sentence greeted me as I sat down at a pre-release screening of Glass last week, as the final part of a letter from its writer/producer/director M. Night Shyamalan to the audience. The upshot of the letter was basically, “Please don’t spoil Glass” (which I’m about to do, so…sorry!) but I could not help but latch onto that last sentence as I steeled myself for the crossover between two of Shyamalan’s earlier films, Unbreakable and Spl...

‘Shazam!’ TV Spot Pokes Fun at ‘The Dark Knight’

The DC Universe has turned over a new leaf, with the decidedly goofy Aquaman getting followed by an even goofier superhero film, Shazam! And the latest Shazam! TV spot is remind you of that. The brief trailer is chock full of new, exciting footage, but the best part of the TV spot is its tongue-in-cheek nod to the famous The Dark Knight tagline: “Why so serious?” Because, honestly, why do we need to be so serious? Shazam TV Spot The new Shazam! TV spot explores what any kid would do if ...

M. Night Shyamalan Says He’s Had the ‘Glass’ Ending in Mind Since 2000 – But It’s Still the Wrong Choice

Spoilers for Glass follow,obviously. M. Night Shyamalan has completed his superhero trilogy with Glass, now playing in theaters everywhere. The film brings together both Unbreakable and Split for a denouement that left many critics (myself included) rather cold. In my humble opinion, the Glass ending feels like a betrayal of everything I held dear about Unbreakable. But according to Shyamalan himself, he always intended to end his saga this way. M. Night Shyamalan On the Glass Ending In t...

‘Shazam’ Suit Might Have Cost $1 Million To Create; Director David F. Sandberg Explains Why

Superhero movies are expensive to make. The upcoming Shazam! is no exception. If you’d like an idea of just how much cash gets sunk into a film like this, costume designer Leah Butler recently revealed that it cost “upwards of a million” dollars to create Zachary Levi‘s Shazam suit, and that at least 10 suits were made. After word of the super-expensive super-suit broke, director David F. Sandberg weighed int o explain why. During a conversation with TotalFilm (via Syfy), Shazam! costume des...

How ‘The Godfather’ Influenced Ryan Coogler’s ‘Black Panther’ Ending

Black Panther‘s ending is one of the most impactful conclusions in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, but it’s a good thing those productions build several days of reshoots into their process, because the entire ending was reworked at the last minute. Read more about the original Black Panther ending and how co-writer/director Ryan Coogler took inspiration from The Godfather to craft a new finale for the film. Michael Shawver, one of Black Panther‘s editors, spoke with CinemaBlend and reve...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Trailer Breakdown: Nick Fury Just Highjacked Our Summer Vacation

Fans have been waiting for the Spider-Man: Far From Home teaser trailer since it debuted down at the CCXP convention down in Brazil, and today it finally arrived. Though it doesn’t feel quite as thrilling as the visual overload and excitement that came from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse last month, it’s good to have Tom Holland back as Peter Parker, especially since the last time we saw him, he wasn’t feeling too well. Of course, since this is our first official glimpse at any footage from ...

‘Men in Black International’ Features More Alien Agents Putting on the Suit

Since Men in Black is concerned with protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe, it doesn’t seem like the kind of organization that would trust extra-terrestrials enough to employ them as agents (although we did see them doing office work and such). When you look back at the Men in Black franchise, there don’t appear to be any aliens suited up as full-fledged agents. But that will change with Men in Black International. Entertainment Weekly has debuted some new photos showing off some...

‘Aquaman’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide But Loses Fourth Weekend to ‘The Upside’

Aquaman has only been in theaters around the world for over a month, but the blockbuster comic book movie has already crossed the $1 billion mark. It’s the first DC Extended Universe movie to reach that box office milestone, and it’s only the 37th film in history to cross that threshold. Who would have thought it would be DC’s most mocked superhero making this achievement? However, even though Aquaman now has over $1.02 billion for its worldwide box office haul, the past weekend’s domestic haul...

‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Early Buzz: A More Violent Season 2 Divides Critics

The Punisher season 2 finds itself in an odd place — as one of two survivors of Netflix’s purge of gritty Marvel shows starring streetwise superheroes. So it perhaps has even more to prove with its upcoming second season than the widely acclaimed Jessica Jones, as The Punisher boasts a more widespread fanbase and a protagonist whose mantra puts himself at odds with the current landscape. So how will the second season of The Punisher fare? The first season of The Punisher was well-received, larg...

Marvel’s ‘The Vision and Scarlet Witch’ TV Series Finds a Showrunner in ‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Black Widow’ Screenwriter

The last time we saw Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), one was having his head torn apart by Thanos and the other was being turned to dust by a godlike snap. But, spoiler alert, they get better – they have a new series coming to the Disney+ streaming service. And now, that new series has a showrunner and a title.
