During that big Sony hack, emails revealed interesting plans for the Spider-Man universe, which included Drew Goddard’s Sinister Six film and an all-female Spidey character spinoff tentatively titled Glass Ceiling. When the studio teamed up with Marvel to reboot the web-slinger (again), those plans were taken off the table, but it looks like one project might be resurfacing (again).
You just don’t see that many music videos tied into movies very much these days, but it looks like Suicide Squad is shaking things up a bit. The full soundtrack list dropped last week along with a video for a song by twenty one pilots, and today brings yet another video for an original track from David Ayer’s devious DC anti-superhero flick — this one from Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne and Imagine Dragons.
If Marvel has taught us anything, management of a shared universe between TV and film is a dicey prospect, one even Star Wars struggles to make a two-way street. That seemed to change with news that Forest Whitaker’s Rogue One character would move from animated Clone Wars beginnings to live-action, but what does supervising producer Dave Filoni have to say?
It’s time for our daily update on the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is, once again, adding more awesome names to its growing roster. At the very least, Marvel and Sony’s new reboot will have a fantastic and very diverse cast — one that now includes Fargo Season 2 favorite Bokeem Woodbine (as yet another villain) and Better Call Saul star Michael Mando.
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 is Pride Week, as you've noticed by now, so I wanted to tackle one of the longest running LGBTQ comics of all time, Alison Bechdel's Dykes to Watch Out For. Bechdel's comic strip ran in underground and queer publications from 1983 to 2008. Everyone remembers it for popularizing the Bechdel-Wallace Test, but to a lot of lesbians and other queer readers, it means a lot more than just that.
The identity of Mads Mikkelsen’s mysterious villain in Doctor Strange has been the subject of much speculation, with fans assuming the former Hannibal star is either playing classic comic baddies like Dormammu or Nightmare. Those would be good guesses, but they’re both incorrect — it turns out Mikkelsen is playing an antagonist most people have never even heard of before, but one that might make for a much more interesting story.
Hey, Spider-Man: Homecoming, how about saving some talent for the rest of the movies? Just last week Sony and Marvel’s joint reboot added Donald Glover, Logan Marshall-Green (Not Tom Hardy) and Martin Starr to an increasingly fantastic ensemble cast, but they’re not done just yet. Today brings word of two more actors joining the lineup: Comedian and Broad City star Hannibal Buress and Beasts of No Nation breakout star Abraham Attah. Who else is left? If Meryl Streep joins this thing, it’s going to start feeling like Christmas at Oprah’s house.
Bryan Cranston has a pretty iconic noggin and booming deep voice. So it kind of makes sense that the ‘Breaking Bad’ star will play Zordon, the big floating holographic head in the new ‘Power Rangers’ movie.
We finally have a ton of new details about Zack Snyder’s upcoming ‘Justice League’ movie.
The movie itself may wind up being conventional and boring, but the marketing for Suicide Squad has been delightful and unpredictable right from the start. The trailers, the ads, have all sold the fact that this is not your ordinary superhero movie; these “heroes” are actually villains forced into savior mode by a deal with the U.S. Government. The film’s two new posters are no exception. Even the way the stock credits are displayed is unusual (on top instead of bottom). This Suicide Squad, they don’t play by your rules, man! Not even your advertising rules! They take your rules and they laugh at them, and then maybe Jared Leto sends them a rat or something because he’s really quite Method about this whole Joker thing.
