‘Ant-Man’ Concept Art Reveals a Great New Look at The Wasp
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.
Marvel Still Pissed at Fox, Now Using The Inhumans to Kill Off The X-Men
The Marvel Cinematic Universe was built out of spare parts. With heavy-hitters like Spider-Man and the X-Men owned by different studios, Marvel Studios bet big on less popular characters and emerged victorious. Suddenly, Iron Man and Captain America became a big deal for ordinary, non-nerd people. Marvel no longer needs their big guns to matter. And now, they’re showcasing their clout by ruthlessly removing the X-Men from the comic book landscape using the characters they intend to replace them with – the Inhumans.
Christopher Nolan Reportedly Producing an ‘Akira’ Trilogy For Warner Bros.
A live action remake of the beloved 1988 anime Akira, based on Katsuhiro Otomo's hugely popular manga of the same name, has been floating around Hollywood for over a decade, attracting and dropping actors and directors at a shocking rate (at one point, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart were set to star). For whatever reason, this film doesn’t want to get made. But Warner Bros. isn’t giving up on this project and if a new rumor is to be believed, they’ve officially reached out to one of the most powerful and popular filmmakers in their regular employ to make it happen. So, how do you feel about not one, but three Akira films produced by Christopher Nolan?
‘Fantastic Four 2’ Is Still Happening For Some Reason
Before Fantastic Four opened to dismal box office and even more dismal reviews, 20th Century Fox attempted to combat the bad buzz surrounding the film by greenlighting a sequel. It was a vote of confidence – they were prepared to stick with this cast moving forward. Then everyone saw the final trainwreck and the internet proceeded to pick over the film’s fascinating corpse in a desperate attempt to figure out what happened with this production. We all assumed that announced sequel was dead and buried. We were wrong.
Here’s What the ‘Iron Man’ Movie Logo Almost Looked Like
Every time you see a logo for anything, whether it be on a soda can or a movie poster, you are looking at the result of a lot of hard work. Specifically, you’re looking at a design that was reached over time, with a designer and a company going back and forth until they reach a final goal. Any official movie logo is only one of dozens that was created. For those who like to see how this particular portion of the movie sausage is made, a new interview with artist Fede Ponce should prove enlightening … especially when you see how many of his ideas for the Iron Man logo didn’t make the final cut.
See All the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Toys That Hasbro Will Release on Force Friday
Star Wars is the kind of movie franchise that commands borderline religious devotion from its fans. So no one batted an eye when September 4, 2015 was declared “Force Friday” and it was revealed that this very specific holiday would see the release of the first wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. And while some people in the Church of Lucasfilm would prefer to keep all merchandise (and any potential spoilers it brings) hidden as long as possible, Hasbro has released a catalog of each and every toy they are releasing on this Blessed Day. Naturally, this catalog has now ended up online.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ Will Feature a Major Battle Between Spider-Man and [SPOILER]!
Captain America: Civil War has a lot on its plate before you get to the part where it has to adequately introduce Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man and it make it matter that he’s punching some of our favorite superheroes in the face. Sure, Spidey is getting his own solo movie in 2017, but you know what they say about first impressions. While we ponder how the movie will bring Peter Parker into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can tear apart and reassemble a single scrap of news to keep ourselves occupied … and we now know just a little bit about one of Spider-Man’s action scenes.
Early ‘Fantastic Four’ Script Includes Galactus, Mole Man and…The FantastiCar?
We have spent our fair share of time sifting through the ashes of the new Fantastic Four movie, desperately trying to figure out exactly what happened here. Call it a morbid fascination. Call it professional curiosity. All we know is that the finished movie is not what anyone involved set out to make. Now we have another item of interest – a glimpse at an early screenplay for the film and it couldn’t be more different than the final film.
Why the Biggest ‘Fantastic Four’ Action Scene Was Cut From the Movie
When Fantastic Four stumbled into theaters two weekends ago, the audiences that did show up noticed that the movie in theaters was not the movie being sold in the trailers. There were a ton of scenes and elements present in the marketing that were absent from the finished film. We even catalogued them right here. The full details of what went down (and what went wrong) on this set will probably remain covered up for a while yet, but details have begun to slowly trickle out. Now we know exactly what happened to the biggest missing scene of them all. Sort of.
Rumor: Disneyland Is Getting Marvel and ‘Star Wars’ Expansions
Ever since Disney bought Lucasfilm and Marvel, theme-park fans have wondered when the company would start to take advantage of their shiny new properties in their theme parks. And for a good long time, there was nothing. Marvel presented a tangled web of rights issues. Star Wars proved a creative challenge. But now, the floodgates look like they’re about to open. New rumors concerning the presence of both franchises at California’s Disneyland have emerged and it sounds like Disney isn’t kidding around.
