Things have been pretty intense over the last few weeks, as hackers attacked Sony and threatened terrorist action if the studio released ‘The Interview.’ You may not get to see ‘The Interview’ anytime soon, but we still have plenty of movies to look forward to, like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2.’ As director James Gunn reveals, Sony isn’t the only studio impacted by all of this hacking business.
Following the recent announcement that Warner Bros. has hired the awesomely talented Michelle MacLaren to direct the first ‘Wonder Woman’ solo film, we also learned that the studio was close to hiring ‘Pan’ screenwriter Jason Fuchs to pen the script. But now it seems that Fuchs may not be the only screenwriter on the project (if he’s still involved at all): rumor has it that WB has hired a total of six writers to deliver six different scripts. Stop scratching your head so much, you’ll make a bald spot.
We haven’t heard much from Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ series since the big presentation at New York Comic-Con, save for the character’s successor in Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, so what’s Matt Murdock been up to? Find out in two new photos of Marvel’s “street-level heroes,”as ‘Daredevil’ hits the streets to dispense some ninja justice!
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was such a fun and original film with director James Gunn’s fingerprints all over it, and one of the best, most exciting films of the year. That’s due in part to the wise music choices featured on the soundtrack and Peter Quill/Star-Lord’s mixtape. Gunn previously released “Awesome Mix Vol. 0,” which featured the music he played for the cast on set, and now the director is back with another mixtape: the original version of “Awesome Mix Vol. 1.”
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Spider-Man has a really hard time, a fascinating ‘Batman vs Superman’ spoiler is revealed, and Marvel looks to cast the mentor of ‘Doctor Strange.’
While we’re continually perplexed by the lack of official photos for Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ TV series, the show’s first official poster and clip were…well, a bit underwhelming. Now, the 2015 ABC drama has given Hayley Atwell’s Peggy a poster much more befitting of Cap’s best gal, and raising our hopes for the series once more.
Joss Whedon is tired. It’s just about halfway through the shoot for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in London, and Whedon doesn’t as much sit down for our interview as he does collapse into a chair. It’s a bright and sunny day in London, but he looks like he hasn’t seen the sunshine in weeks. He’s completely wiped out—”raggedy” as he puts it—by his schedule, which he describes thusly: “I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep. I do this, I go home, I rewrite, I go to sleep.”
And like that, ‘Suicide Squad’ has seemingly added another big name to its already impressive ensemble. According to the latest rumor, two-time Academy Award nominee and ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ star Viola Davis has nabbed the role of Amanda Waller in David Ayer’s upcoming supervillain team-up film. We’ll see how the actual movie shakes out in a little under two years, but this may very well be the craziest cast ever assembled for a comic book adaptation.
Warner Bros. has been trying to adapt Neil Gaiman’s classic ‘Sandman’ graphic novels into a film for years with little success, but now that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to direct and David S. Goyer is involved, the project is picking up steam. Gaiman himself has been working closely with Gordon-Levitt, Goyer, and writer Jack Thorne on finally bringing ‘Sandman’ to the big screen, and he thinks Tom Hiddleston would be the perfect leading man.
We weren’t surprised to see ‘The Flash’ taking care of ‘Arrow’ cousin and ‘Tomorrow People’ castoff Robbie Amell after the latter’s cancellation, but it seems yet another evolved human will make their way to Central City as well. Peyton List will appear in an upcoming 2015 episode of ‘The Flash,’ playing none other than Captain Cold’s sister, DC’s “Golden Glider.”
