Big news from the land of Asgard; stuff so surprising not even Heimdall could have seen it coming.
TheWrap reports that Marvel has decided on a director to helm the third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok. And it’s Taika Waititi, a writer/director/actor from New Zealand. Waititi is an accomplished filmmaker, but his work tends to be in a much smaller vein than your standard Marvel fare; character-based comedies and dramas like Eagle Vs. Shark and Boy. His most recent effort was the hilarious vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows, which was great but also not nearly of the size or scope of a Marvel movie. TheWrap says Waititi is now “in negotiations” for the job.
If you were born any time in the past 90 years or so, there's a pretty good chance you've been frightened, unsettled, menaced or just generally made uncomfortable by one or more of the villains in a Disney animated film.
Understandably, it's the protagonists of Disney films --- particularly the princesses --- who get a lot of attention from fan artists, but as it's October, we here at ComicsAlliance are taking the time to shine a spotlight on villains, those characters who make it their mission to throw obstacles in the way of fresh-faced (and occasionally hunchbacked, wooden. or passed-out) heroes.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week we're looking at Rat Queens, the hilarious high fantasy series starring an all-lady team of rowdy adventurers, written by Kurtis J. Wiebe and currently illustrated by Tess Fowler.
Somewhere, Alan Moore’s beard is tingling. Zack Snyder’s cinematic adaptation of the iconic Watchmen comics by Moore and Dave Gibbons divided fans, some sticking with assertions of the source material as “unfilmable,” others acknowledging the film’s effort. That conflict may end up sparked anew, now that Snyder has reportedly met with HBO for a Watchmen TV series.
Welcome to Cast Party, a new feature that imagines a world with even more live action adaptations of our favorite comic books than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you're ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.
For this first installment we're looking at an imaginary movie adaptation of Batgirl of Burnside, aka the current Batgirl series by Cameron Stewart, Babs Tarr and Brenden Fletcher.
Marvel’s Ant-Man did a solid job of establishing its title character as a significant player in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also laid the groundwork for another story of equal interest. In flashbacks to Hank Pym’s world-saving days, we meet his wife, Janet, aka The Wasp, a superhero who one-ups her partner’s shrinking abilities with some pretty badass wings. Unfortunately, we only catch a few brief glimpses of this iconic Marvel heroine in the midst of a very hectic action scene. Fortunately, some newly revealed concept art now allows us to pick apart the details of her costume like real nerds.
Independence Day: Resurgence appropriately takes place 20 years after the events of Independence Day, as the world has united to form the Earth Space Defense, using tech leftover from the last alien invasion to build weapons to defend ourselves from potential future attacks. But how did we get to that point, exactly? A new prequel comic will help fill in the gaps.
It may seem hard to believe, but Marvel has now completed two phases of films, ending Phase Two with Ant-Man before entering Phase Three next summer with Captain America: Civil War. The new MCU kicked off back in 2008 with Iron Man and ended with the first Avengers in 2012 — which already seems so, so long ago. As we prepare for Avengers: Age of Ultron to hit Blu-ray and DVD, one fan has put together this 10-minute retrospective looking back on the films of Phase One.
Let’s take a brief memory-trip back to the time before last year’s big Sony hack, when the studio had a lot of ambitious and sort of messy plans to rescue their Spider-Man franchise from itself. In addition to potential spinoffs (including an all-female movie and rumors of an Aunt May film), Sony was also planning a Sinister Six film with Drew Goddard writing and directing. Goddard’s project was the only real promising Spidey spinoff of the bunch, and it turns out that it might still see the light of day.
During San Diego Comic-Con Wesley Snipes revealed that he’d had some discussions with Marvel about reviving the Blade franchise now that the rights have reverted back to the studio. It wasn’t long after that a rumor popped up involving a delay in the release of Marvel’s new comic centered on Blade’s daughter, suggesting that Marvel Studios might be working on a project involving that character. And now the Blade rumors continue to flow as Snipes is once again talking about meeting with Marvel, making things seem more optimistic for his return than ever before.
