‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Embraces ’80s Music with These Record Covers

xmusic_featured

X-Men: Apocalypse doesn't come out in the US until May 27, but we've known for a while that it takes place in the 1980s. In fact, that's what inspired all the recent '80s X-Men fan art. Now the marketing team for the movie has gone a similar direction themselves, posting five images to the official X-Men Movies Facebook Page that insert characters from the movie into some classic '80s record cover art.

In Wake of ‘Batman v Superman,’ Geoff Johns Named To Lead ‘DC Films’ Division At Warner Bros

batman-vs-superman-final-trailer-pic-1

Success is relative. A lot of movies would kill for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s box office grosses. $869 million worldwide and counting? That’s got to be a hit, right? Yes and no. That total’s short of the $1 billion worldwide that has become the new benchmark for mega blockbusters. In just 11 days of release, Captain America: Civil War’s already made almost $100 million more. Then there are the film’s tepid Rotten Tomatoes and CinemaScores. This is the movie that’s supposed to launch at least a half dozen other franchises. So while the results weren’t disastrous, they weren’t great either.

Dwayne Johnson Is Making a ‘Cool Movie’ With Shane Black in 2017

Another week, another exciting Instagram update from our crazy-busy, impossibly charming and totally ripped pal Dwayne Johnson. Despite his increasingly crowded schedule, it looks like Johnson may have finally found some time to devote to Shane Black’s long-developing Doc Savage movie — thus confirming our suspicions that The Rock may actually be an advanced A.I. that requires no sleep.

Kevin Feige Explains Why Natalie Portman Won’t Appear in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Natalie Portman not showing up in the next Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok, is not news. (Neither is the addition of Tessa Thompson to the cast in her absence.) We’ve known that for a few months now. The explanation for Portman’s absence hasn’t be fully revealed yet, though, and that’s something Marvel Grand Poobah Kevin Feige got into a little bit during his recent appearance on the Empire Film Podcast.

‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Visual Story Guide Preview is Full of Rebel Secrets

While not quite as dramatic as the stolen plans to the original Death Star, a 10-page preview of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Official Visual Story Guide was uncovered this week. After dropping the first teaser trailer on us last month, it's been all quiet on the Outer Rim front for Rogue One. That's not all that surprising given that Star Wars Celebration 2016 is just a hair under two months away, and Lucasfilm and Disney are likely loading up all the big reveals for the self-titled convention. As the internet has shown over the past few years however, you can't keep Star Wars secrets locked up for long.

The Rogue One story guide preview was just a small sampling in the Macmillan Winter 2016 preview catalog, uncovered by Slash Film. Though the film isn't due out for months, this preview gives us the bit of an idea of what to expect from Gareth Edwards' anthology film, which is the first of many planned spin-offs set in the Star Wars universe.

This is your warning to avoid reading any further should you not want even the slightest details about Rogue One spoiled.

Bryan Singer Confirms ‘X-Force’ Development, Hints at Female Wolverine

Marvel
Marvel

Back in 2013, Fox tapped Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow to script an X-Force movie, but Deadpool’s development put X-Force on the back burner, and the Merc With a Mouth’s record-breaking box office seems to have made the studio rethink their plans. Bryan Singer basically confirms as much, revealing that not only is Simon Kinberg currently working on a new X-Force screenplay, but that Singer himself pitched a female version of Wolverine — lending credence to recent rumors that X23 will appear in The Wolverine sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Harley Quinn, the Joker fangirl who has a major role in this summer’s Suicide Squad movie, will not limit herself to just that film. THR reports Warner Bros. is also developing a spinoff movie for Quinn, played in David Ayer’s film by Margot Robbie. But it gets even more interesting than that; Robbie is “attached to reprise the character and would also produce [this] untitled spin-off” which would also co-star “several of DC’s female heroes and villains”:

Shane Black’s ‘Iron Man 3’ Villain Was Originally A Woman, But Was Changed For Toy Sales

Often times the movie business is not at all about movies, but the merchandise that springs off of big studio productions. Because why make a superhero movie if you don’t plan to sell a ton of action figures along with it?

‘X-Men’ Director Bryan Singer Wants to Take the Next Sequel to Space, Wink Wink

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that the next X-Men sequel will take place during the ’90s, which is fairly unsurprising given that it follows the decade-by-decade pattern of the recent trilogy. That doesn’t tell us much about their plans for the next chapter of the X-Men saga, but Bryan Singer has put forth an idea that may give us a hint about where the story is heading.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Unused Concept Art Shows a Masked Baron Zemo

Captain America 3 villain baron zemo
Marvel

The comic book version of Baron Zemo looks quite different from the way he was portrayed in Captain America: Civil War — most notably, the character is typically seen wearing a purple hood, which was permanently fused to his face following an unfortunate run-in with an experimental adhesive. But Daniel Bruhl’s version of Zemo in Civil War is depicted without the hood, or any real resemblance to his comic book counterpart, for that matter. Although that choice was probably for the best, unused concept art shows what Bruhl might have looked like if Joe and Anthony Russo had remained more faithful to the source material.
