It was just last week that WB announced their DC release schedule, including their plans for a 'Suicide Squad' film from director David Ayer. And now we have a few hints and details from Ayer himself, who recently helmed the WWII flick 'Fury.' And while he couldn't confirm any of the recent casting rumors for 'Suicide Squad,' he is teasing what we can expect from his vision of the project.
'Arrow' season 3 has played host to a wealth of DC comics additions in only its first few weeks, with plenty more on the way, so why not keep adding to the list? Fresh off supervillainous turns in 'The Cape' and 'X-Men' universes, Vinnie Jones will take up his next comic baddie role in 'Arrow' season 3 as DC villain "Brick."
As successful as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was at the box-office (and, as the highest-grossing film of the year, it certainly was that), the film's iconic soundtrack was equally as successful. "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and is currently the 10th largest selling album of 2014. You've been able to buy the digital album, the CD, vinyl and even a "Deluxe Edition," but so far, no actual cassette like the mix tape in the film. But, that's all about to change.
A few days ago, Marvel Studios' executive vice president of visual effects and post-production spoke at the Visual Effects Society Production Summit. Although most of her speech was industry inside baseball, she did drop one interesting factoid that should prove interesting to news-hungry superhero nerds: 'Avengers 2' will feature more special effects shots than any other Marvel movie so far.
Robert Downey, Jr. reportedly made over $50 million for the first 'Avengers' movie, so if he wanted a giant "A" in his office (like the one seen on the side of Stark Tower at the end of the film) to celebrate the massive success of the film, he could've very easily just had a replica made. But, he didn't want a replica, he wanted a real thing. Or, at least that's what he joked to Marvel. So, imagine his surprise when he showed up at home and there waiting for him was the 30-foot tall "A".
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, Warner Bros. makes big superhero plans, Marvel wants to start a Civil War, and a certain actress may be playing a certain character in 'Batman vs. Superman.'
It's been a super busy news week in the world of superheroes, with Marvel and Warner Bros. seemingly courting a ton of actors for roles this week. But don't leave Fox out of the mix: they've got some big plans for 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' and those plans involve landing someone for the role of the titular villain. Could that someone be Tom Hardy?
Here we go again! Another day, and yet another 'Doctor Strange' update: the latest news has Marvel adding one -- just one -- more name to the ever-growing list of possible stars to play the Sorcerer Supreme, while we've learned that at least a couple of actors haven't quite been crossed off that list just yet: most notably Joaquin Phoenix, who had previously been in negotiations with Marvel over the summer.
In the many months since director Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel on 'Ant-Man,' it's been unclear just how much the project would change. With new director Peyton Reed on board and Adam McKay ('Anchorman') brought in to rewrite the script, things are back on track for the film to make its 2015 release date. And thanks to a new interview with McKay, we have a more clear idea about how much has changed between Wright's and Reed's versions of the film -- including how much star Paul Rudd helped shape the script.
With 'X-Men: First Class' and 'Days of Future Past' essentially rebooting the franchise for the better, there's still hope for the recently announced 'Deadpool' movie. If you've been wondering how (or if) these films and mutants will cross paths or even share a timeline with all the time-hopping, we've got an answer, courtesy of 'X-Men' producer Simon Kinberg.
