However, their strongest presence will be in the toy aisles, with new LEGO sets and action figures scheduled to arrive just in time to tease the movie, delight your kids, and drain your wallet.

There Was Almost a ‘Hit-Girl’ Movie Directed by ‘The Raid’’s Gareth Evans

The biggest brand in comic-book movies right now is clearly Marvel. And the second-biggest is probably DC. But the third-biggest might be Mark Millar, a writer who’s spent time at both Marvel and DC, wrote the ‘Civil War’ storyline that’s going to be the basis for the next ‘Captain America’ movie, and co-created ‘The Ultimates’ comic that served as a heavy inspiration for many elements of Marvel’s movies (including the Chitauri aliens from ‘The Avengers’ and the depiction of Nick Fury as a Samuel L. Jackson look-alike). Most of Millar’s creator-owned comics have been or are in the process of being turned into films. First there was ‘Wanted’ in 2008, then the two ‘Kick-Ass’ movies in 2010 and 2013. Next is ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service,’ which opens in theaters next month, and Millar’s got several more projects (like ‘Nemesis,’ ‘Superior’) in the pipeline behind it.

by Jacob Hall 4 days ago
If you thought the first trailer for Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot was suspiciously similar to the trailers for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar,’ you weren’t alone! Although both films couldn’t seem more different on the outside, they both employed their fair share of identical movie marketing tropes ... and it took less than a day for someone to mash them up. Good job, internet!
