Director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg have previously expressed a desire to keep the X-Men franchise going, as they transition their focus onto the younger cast of mutants. That includes Tye Sheridan, who plays Scott Summers, aka Cyclops, in X-Men: Apocalypse. According to Sheridan, that film may just be the beginning of his role in the franchise, as the up and coming actor has signed on for two more sequels.
Production is gearing up on The Wolverine 2, which is assembling a respectable supporting cast for Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the iconic superhero. In addition to the recent casting of Narcos’ Boyd Holbrook, the sequel has added two more stars to the lineup, with Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant joining Jackman’s farewell to the the famous mutant.
For the last couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. has said that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie — and he hasn’t appeared to be interested in making another one, to be honest. And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3. When (and if) Marvel re-ups the actor’s contract, that could very well be subject to change, when (and if) Downey Jr. is open to it. That time appears to be now.
Legends of Tomorrow has begun winding down its first-season struggle against Vandal Savage, and it’s safe to say that not all of the Arrow-Flash spinoff has proven a rousing success. Headed into Season 2 however, Legends will borrow writers from both DC dramas, not only to facilitate crossover, but to completely reinvent the series from atom.
The Happytime Murders has been in the works since 2008, with STX Entertainment stepping in last summer to put Brian Henson’s R-rated puppet crime movie back in development. It’s been several months since the last update on the long-gestating project, but it looks as though things are finally picking up, as Jamie Foxx is in talks to star in the film — but is he a man, or is he a puppet?
Today brings a few updates on Nikolaj Arcel's adaptation of The Dark Tower. First up, Vikings star Katheryn Winnick has joined the cast in a mysterious role, and given that the screenplay borrows from a few of the books in Stephen King's epic series, she could be playing just about anyone. In addition, some photos have popped up from the set, giving us our look at what could be the official logo, as well as a couple of locations and some cool practical effects.
The idea of seeing Spider-Man in the MCU used to seem totally crazy, but here we are. Tom Holland’s web-slinger is set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War in just a couple of weeks, and early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive about the new Spidey. But that’s Civil War. Sony’s last two Spider-Man movies were kind of a mess, to say the least, so a little skepticism regarding their upcoming reboot is understandable. Rest assured that Spidey is in good hands, according to Kevin Feige.
The Leftovers Season 2 didn’t leave us with any indication that the Garvey family’s time in Miracle had come to an end, though with Season 3 confirmed as the show’s last, the Damon Lindelof rapture drama is in for another tectonic shift. The Leftovers will move the final chapter to Australia, both in story and production.
Dominic Cooper is following up his role as the younger Howard Stark in Marvel’s Agent Carter with two more franchise adaptations this summer. In addition to appearing on the big screen in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, Cooper stars in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher, the new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ beloved graphic novels. Debuting on May 1, the first episode impressively captures the darkly comedic and devious tone of the comics, leaving us eager to see more. We had a chance to speak with Cooper following the premiere of Preacher at SXSW, where he discussed his part in the risky adaptation and teased some of the crazy stuff we'll see in the episodes and (hopefully) seasons ahead.
