Comic books have pretty much dominated the movie world with fun-to-watch (if not incredible) film adaptations of the X-Men, Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four story lines, to name just a few. Marvel Studios is currently in the middle of a renaissance of sorts when its box office hit 'The Avengers' becoming one of the top movies of summer 2012, thereby making the branched-off movies ('Iron Man,' 'Captain America,' 'Thor,' 'The Hulk') equally epic.
While Marvel is focusing now on the upcoming 'The Avengers 2,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and all the various sequels of the individual Avenger members, 20th Century Fox has some plans of its own. The studio has decided to bring on board comic book writer and 'Kick-Ass 2' creator Mark Millar as creative consultant for all the upcoming Marvel-adapted movies.

Wasn't Liam Neeson a badass in 'Taken'? And doesn't he look like he's going to be even more of one in 'Taken 2'? Well, guess what -- that's not always him doing those badass things up there on the screen.
And yet another young adult novel about a dystopian future gets an adaptation -- this time, it's James Dashner's 'The Maze Runner' over at 20th Century Fox, and it looks like Wes Ball has been chosen to direct.
When we reported earlier today that Joe Carnahan's attempt to reboot 'Daredevil' was rejected, it seemed likely that the property -- which was controlled by 20th Century Fox -- would fall back into the hands of Marvel. With so little time left on the clock, that's exactly what's happening.
No way, dude! Gerard Butler just totally got paid to hang out at the ocean all day. Whoa. The Butster recently shot 'Chasing Mavericks' and now there's a brand new trailer out for the movie where Gerard Butler surfs and acts and acts like he's surfing.
'The Fantastic Four' has had two turns up at box office bat and both of them have been horrible attempts at bringing the famous super group to the big screen. 20th Century Fox has been trying to reboot the series and after getting their director, they've now snagged a writer.
In news that will surely rock the very foundation of Tinseltown, a writer/director/producer type is going to make a big screen movie based off of a property from something called a "graphic novel."
Blue Sky Studios has been one of those under appreciated studios in the world of animation. The talented group of artists have made such great animated features like the 'Ice Age' series, 'Robots,' and 'Horton Hears a Who.' Now, with 20th Century Fox Animation, they're bringing another feature to the big screen, and it's filled with talented actors.
It's another day and yes, another 'Prometheus' trailer, clip or featurette has surfaced somewhere online. This time around it's the latter -- a featurette -- and it focuses on the title "character"...not the Titan of ancient myths but the ship of the future.
In an effort to seem more appealing in various international markets, 20th Century Fox is giving the title of 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' a makeover when it hits overseas. The revisionist tale of a renegade American president killing vampires isn't an instant selling point to foreigners? There are countries that matter besides the United States? News!
