‘Black Panther’ Will Have at Least One Flashback to the 1990s

Marvel

So far the Marvel movies have been pretty light on the flashbacks, especially when it comes to origin stories. The upcoming Black Panther, however, will feature a few flashbacks to T’Challa’s youth as it tells a kind of coming-of-age story. We’ve known for a bit that there would be flashbacks, but now we know some details: at least one of them will feature a 1990s-era AC Transit bus.

X-Men Producer Says the ‘Gambit’ Movie Is Still Happening, We Promise

When you hear talk of the standalone Gambit movie, most — well, pretty much all — of it has the word “delay” in there somewhere. The movie started off strong: Channing Tatum signed on for the title character, it had a director, and everything looked good. Then, the first delay happened, it lost director Rupert Wyatt, got a new one, and was delayed some more. But fans of the trickster need not lose hope yet: X-Men producer Laura Schuler Donner says Tatum is still signed on to do a standalone Gambit movie in the future. We just don’t know when.

2017 promises to be the biggest year yet for superhero movies, with eight confirmed major studio releases between February and November --- and a still unconfirmed ninth release expected from Fox.

Honor the Man, Honor the Film: Watch the ‘Deadpool’ For Your Consideration Ad

Deadpool
20th Century Fox

It’s been a topsy-turvy week for awards prognosticators, relative even to the usual topsy-turviness of an industry based entirely on guesswork and speculation. Deadpool frightened and confused Oscar oddsmakers when it unexpectedly snatched up a Best Picture nomination from the Producers Guild Awards program on Tuesday, and then officially rejiggered everyone’s slate of predictions when director Tim Miller earned a nomination from the Directors Guild of America. What had been all but forgotten as a superhero oddball is staging a late-phase charge among the groups of professionals that vote for Oscar nominees — nothing is out of the question.

One of the most exciting, visceral and engaging films of last year was Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Prequel which opened up the vast franchise in a number of ways we haven't seen before while remaining one of the most intimate and personal films in the Star Wars franchise. It was only a matter of time before Marvel adapted the film as part of their ever-popular line of Star Wars comics, and to do so the publisher has tapped Jody Houser and Emilio Laiso for a miniseries which will expand upon the events of the film.
