Universal / DC

Rumors have been circulating for some time now (even as recent as the past week) that Warner Bros.’ new Green Lantern movie will focus on not one, but multiple Green Lanterns, in keeping with the comics. Chris Pine has been rumored for the role of Hal Jordan since last year, but Fast and Furious star Tyrese Gibson has been lobbying for a role in WB’s reboot as well. It looks like he may have gotten it.

Hot Toys Avengers: Age of Ultron Thor is Super Serious, You Guys

Hot Toys
Hot Toys

You know who is the most serious hero in the Avengers? It's Thor. You know how I know this? It's because his Hot Toys figure has a face sculpt that's so "srs bsns" it looks like he's trying really, really hard to not crap his Asgaridan britches. Typically, I really like Hot Toys' sculpts. There are a few here and there that don't really match up 100% (Chris Pratt Star-Lord and pre-Winter Soldier Scarlett Johansson Black Widows), but the sculptors there haven't missed on a Chris Hemsworth Thor yet. Technically, this does look like Chris, it's just that I'm not so sure anyone wants a version of Thor that looks like he just got done watching Zoolander.

It's a shame,too, since the Thor: The Dark World version was really sharp. This Avengers: Age of Ultron figure takes plenty of inspiration from the previous iteration, though the head sculpt is all new. The armor and cape are fairly close to the last figure, with some minor variation to differentiate it just enough. This Thor will also come with multiple Mjolnirs, including the standard metal version and a new LED light-up version. There's also a little lightning effect add-on to include for that added bit of Mjolnir realism.

Marvel

Captain America: Civil War is currently in production, and we just saw Avengers: Age of Ultron, but rumors are already swirling about who’s involved in Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel’s two-part conclusion to Phase 3 is going to be bigger than big (obviously), and will see Earth’s mightiest heroes engaged in the ultimate showdown with Thanos. But according to the latest rumor, Thanos might not be the only big bad the Avengers have to deal with.

Chris Pine Reportedly May Star in ‘Green Lantern’ Reboot

Green Lantern
DC Comics

As one of their first attempts to compete with Marvel Studios and their growing Cinematic Universe, DC and Warner Bros. released Green Lantern, a 2011 film starring Ryan Reynolds as test-pilot-turned-super-powered-space-cop Hal Jordan. The movie, which was fairly faithful to the DC comics, introduced Hal and the entire Green Lantern Corps, a whole force of space cops from all over the universe, including popular Green Lantern characters like Sinestro (Mark Strong) and Kilowog (Michael Clarke Duncan). The movie was designed to launch a new franchise of Green Lantern adventures (it even ended on a cliffhanger teasing Sinestro’s turn from hero to villain). This was going to be the start of a brave new era of DC films!

‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ Might Not Feature The Collector, But He Could Still Return to the MCU

Marvel

One of the quirkier aspects of Guardians of the Galaxy was Benicio Del Toro’s role as Taneleer Tivan, aka The Collector, a delightful eccentric who spends his time collecting various artifacts and life forms. With James Gunn hard at work completing the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 script, we’ve been wondering who will — and won’t — return for the sequel. According to Del Toro, it might not happen, but he may return to the MCU again pretty soon.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors about a possible crossover between Fox’s new Fantastic Four and the well-established X-Men franchises. Producer and writer Simon Kinberg himself has hinted at the possibility, and given his lengthy contract with Fox, it seems plausible. A new report makes that possibility seem more like a reality, and rumor has it the crossover may hit the big screen as soon as 2018.

If you were hanging around the internet for even a few minutes the other day, then you undoubtedly saw reports that Selma director Ava DuVernay had been officially hired by Marvel to helm Black Panther. Those reports were unsubstantiated and unconfirmed by Marvel — little more than a rumor that was reported without a source to back it up. But at least one related report has now been officially confirmed by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige himself.

Batman vs Superman Batman Ben Affleck
Warner Bros.

When Warner Bros. announced their upcoming superhero schedule last year, one title notably missing was a solo Batman movie. Sure, Batman was going to be a big part of both Batman vs. Superman and the two Justice League movies, but would Batfleck be getting his own trilogy, a la The Dark Knight? It turns out, yes, yes he will. Latino Review is reporting that Ben Affleck will both star in and direct the spinoff, titled The Batman, which is set for November 2018.
