Title: Upcoming Marvel and DC movies
Post by: G_Thang on April 05, 2011, 02:46:03 AM
Which ones are going to be good?  i vote DKR, and the rest will be jokes.  2011 lineup - Thor comes to America without his powers, Green Lantern has popcorn special effects, Cap America and a bunch of 1-liners and Xmen still refuse to get magneto right.   


2011- Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America, X-men First Class..

2012- The AVENGERS, The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spiderman Superman: Man of Steel

2013- The Justice League, Iron Man 3

This looks promising, since all the JL movies have been pretty good so far and this might be the best one yet

Also have high hopes for Man of Steel

I've watched the extended Green Lantern preview a few times now in the last couple of days, and it still looks pretty shitty to me. Thor - I'm divided. Captain America I still think should look older, but the previews have been ok. Looking forward to seeing that one.

Skipping Thor because its stupid. 

Will probably see Green Lantern and Captain America.  No need for another Spiderman flick and will have to think hard about the latest version of Superman.  Justice League?  At the moment, no thanks.  Iron Man 3?  I skipped part 2 because it looked lame, so who knows?  The next installment of The X-Men?  Maybe.  The Dark Knight Rises?  Well if Batman keeps talking like Eric Cartman as The C oon (sheesh! What a lame word to censor!), then no thanks. 

As for the intelligence level of those of us at or above the age of adulthood that are still comic enthusiasts, well suffice to say its no different than, for example, some peoples appetite for pornography.  Both genres are pure fantasy and in all honesty not about to happen to any of us in the real world.   ;D  Which of these two groups of fans is the least intelligent?  The Superhero wannabes or the Human Fiddler Crabs. ;)


I'll side with the Comic fans.

if they made movies exactly as the comic then what is the point  of comic books? also only comic book geeks would show up for the movie. Movies as meant for the masses to consume and must be catered as such.

why not a black hemeidell? or any other ethnicity, times have changed my friend.

The only thing that has changed is making sure minorities are covered in everything so no-one gets their vaginas out of place.

The thing about Davedevil is they made the black guy the criminal. But i guess a Mastermind Criminal is ok.

Why ask why?
As far as Michael Clark Duncan as Kingpin, he fit the bill of a big mofo, who can act...unfortunately, there are no white actors out there...who were they gonna get at the time, KANE?
And even MCD didn't fit the exact discription---Kingpin is a BiG ROTUND dude, more fat than muscle---althogh he has been drawn as muscular/and round.

You have good points other than that...
But, many times they have to change stuff up for the mainstream---things that urk the fanbois like you and me. Like Wolverine is 5'4 and diesel, Hugh Jackman is like 5'11 and cut.


I tell you what, they BETTER NOT eff up the Deadpool movie....that is my shit, and if they ever get around to making a Darkess movie, they better not eff that up either.

Deadpool Creator Robert Liefeld Comments On Tim Miller Directing The Big Screen Adaptation!
Robert Liefeld, who created "Merc with a Mouth" along with Fabian Nicieza, shares his thoughts on Tim Miller directing the Deadpool adaptation. Check it out!
Via Twitter, creator Robert Liefeld shared some of his thoughts regarding Tim Miller, a director who will bring Deadpool to the big screen, in his own comic book adaptation.


"The Deadpool director, Tim Miller has an outstanding CGI/FX company, Blur Studios. Miller has all the instincts, tools and tech to pull off the most crazy aspects of Deadpool film. And Miller had to run the gauntlet, getting the blessing of writers Reese and Wernick, as well as Ryan Reynolds AND the studio. The Deadpool script calls for some CRAZY visual sequences - needed a director with extensive FX mojo. Looking forward 2 Tim Miller's direction.

Trust me, having read the script a thousand times, I had legitimate concerns over directors being able to handle the requirements of DP. I believe the DP film scared the crap out of some prospective directors. As a matter of fact I know some of them were intimidated. Seriously the action and direction imagined by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick is crazy complicated. Think the best of Kill Bill, Matrix, Woo.."


With Ryan Reynolds still attached, Deadpool is probably going to start production this year.

The Wolverine To Start Filming This October; Set To Be Released In 2012!
Following the announcement that James Mangold will helm the movie, Hugh Jackman has now let slip that the movie will start filming later this year in preparation for a 2012 release...
After Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky pulled out, the fate of The Wolverine was left up in the air, with many believing that we wouldn't see the movie until as late as 2013 or 2014, despite the announcement of James Mangold being chosen to helm the project. Well, not so according to star Hugh Jackman. Here is an excerpt from The Playlist.

Speaking yesterday to the hugely irritating Darren Osborne of the Toronto radio station CHFI about his upcoming stage show coming to the Canadian city, Jackson let loose about the plans for the comic movie. "We shoot in October, so it will probably come out a year after that. That’s usually around the timeline," Jackman said.

Marvel Moving Forward With Dr Strange
Word is that the script has been handed in and a shortlist of directors put together. No names as of yet, but Twitchfilm reckon the movie is now on track for a 2013 release...
Seen by many as a second tier character in the Marvel Universe, Dr Stephen Strange is nonetheless one of it's most popular. And fans have been crying out for Marvel Studious to give The Sorcerer Supreme the big screen treatment for years now. Last we had heard Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer were brought in to draft a script, but aside from the likes of Kevin Feige and Stan Lee confirming that the wheels were in motion, we haven't had anything else solid until now.

From Twitchfilm..
Twitch has learned that Oppenheimer and Donnelly have now turned in their script and Marvel is pushing forward with the property. Marvel has drafted a short list of directors to approach on the title and is forwarding the current script to each to try and sign someone up to 'oversee continued development'.

If this is on the level, and you can pretty much bet it is, expect a look at that shortlist soon enough. Twitch feel that Marvel's commitment to the character means we could see the movie released sometime in 2013. Guess we shall see. Aside from Patrick Dempsey, no one has really thrown their hat in the ring to play Dr Strange. Who do you guys think would do a good job?

Laurence Fishburne Signing On For 'Perry White' In Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel!
Recent reports suggest that The Matrix Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne is the latest to join Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man Of Steel as Perry White. Check it!

The folks from Entertainment Weekly, as well other reliable sources, are reporting that Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne is rounding out the star-studded cast of Zack Snyder's 'Superman' reboot, Man Of Steel. Filling in the shoes of Daily Planet editor-in-chief, Perry White, the site states verbatim:

Lois Lane and Clark Kent just got their boss: Laurence Fishburne will play Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in Man of Steel, EW has learned exclusively. White has traditionally been a hard-charging, old fashioned newspaperman, who relies on his ace reporters, Clark and Lois, to get the big scoop.

Laurence Fishburne, 50, gave an Oscar-nominated performance as 'Ike Turner' in What's Love Got to Do With It, alongside leading actress Angela Bassett. And hes also appeared in The Matrix, Mystic River and Apocalypse Now.

Like EW suggests, Perry White is the abrasive, old-school newsman who lords over the the Daily Planet. However, while Fishburne is evidently African-American, in the comics, the character is portrayed as a Caucasian. What do you think?

UPDATE: First Look at Superman Costume!
As filming begins on Man of Steel, Warner Bros. have released an image of Henry Cavill in full costume as Superman (minus pants?!) giving us our first look at the actor suited up and seemingly tearing off a vault door of some kind...
Well, I don't think any of us were expecting this to appear today! Regardless, Warner Bros. have unveiled our first look at Henry Cavill in full costume as Superman, in the first official still from Man of Steel. Many thanks to Twitter's @RIMBreaks for the heads up. Be sure to share your thoughts on this image by using the poll, the "Like" and "Dislike" buttons, and the comments section below!

Press Release

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have provided the first look at the new “Man of Steel,” revealing star Henry Cavill as Superman in the film from director Zack Snyder. The film also stars three-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (“The Fighter”) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane (“Unfaithful”) and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”).

Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”), and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Julia Ormond, and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”).

Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy.

“Man of Steel” is being produced by Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer, from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

Currently in production, “Man of Steel” is slated for release on June 14, 2013 and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer?

Nicolas Winding Refn Gets Wonder Woman if Logan's Run is a Success
The Christina Hendrick's version of Wonder Woman is only a hit movie away! According to the director of the new movie Drive, he was told by a studio exec that if Logan's Run is a moneymaker, he'll gets his prized project.

Courtesy of Indie Wire

1. Refn’s has been told by studio executives that his dream adaptation of “Wonder Woman” depends on the success of his first blockbuster, “Logan’s Run”

“I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ And I also think that Christina Hendricks would be the perfect Wonder Woman, but Warner Bros haven’t called yet. But I’m getting closer with ‘Logan’s Run.’ I think someone said to me in a meeting that if I get ‘Logan’s Run’ right, then I’ll get ‘Wonder Woman.’”

I like this guy. He has such a desire to make Wonder Woman when other directors would take it only for the paycheck. So what does he have planned for Logan's Run?

Here is excerpt from an interview with I09

How do you update a film like [Logan's Run]? Do you keep Box?

I have done this, I've gone back, and I've seen the movie, I've seen the TV show and I've started to read the novels. I've read the first one. And I'm beginning to get an angle on it that I think could be interesting. I think the challenge with Logan's Run is that the premise is so brilliant, that the payoff will almost always be disappointing. Except, if you come up with something really, really, really, really brilliant.

Do you have that? You're planning on altering something?

I think it needs to be altered, because everything in Logan's Run became true, and more in our society nowadays. So it's thinking "What would Logan's Run feel like if it was written today, about 2,000 years into the future."


A little too vague to determine if his version of Logan's Run will be a hit or not. Ryan Gosling will be starring in the movie, he is expected to play Logan 5 which was played by Michael York in the 1976 film. The role is like a police officer in the future, called a Sandman. These Sandmen are responsible for tracking down people who don't conform to the society rules and become "runners." In the movie people had to submit at age 30, but in the novel, which Refn is using as the source, the age is 21.

I enjoyed the original Logan's Run and I don't think it is perfect at all. This is one of the few movies that I really don't mind getting updated.

And if you aren't familiar with Refn's desire to make Wonder Woman you may not be aware of his gushing of the Mad Men actress, Christina Hendricks as the next Amazonian princess. He calls her the perfect choice and I'm too busy staring at her to disagree.

Simple enough, everyone go see Logan's run and we finally get a Wonder Woman movie. I'm in! Are you?

Is Kelly Hu in The Wolverine?
The actress that played Lady Deathstrike in X-Men 2 responds to the speculation that she is in Hugh Jackman's The Wolverine. See what she has to say in this video interview.
If you've read any of the stories lately about The Wolverine you'll see reporter after reporter stating that Kelly Hu is in the movie and will be reprising her role as Lady Deathstrike. I'm a curious soul, so I decided to do some digging and I came across this video of the sultry actress responding to the rumors of her casting in the film. Skip to the 20 second mark to see and hear her responses to the rumor.

 I for one would love to see Kelly comeback and play Lady Deathstrike once again. Heck, I'd love to see more of Kelly in anything. Last I saw of her she was on Hawaii Five-O, and then they killed her off. How do you kill off one of the most beautiful women in the world? The balls on these writers. Do they think angels just grow on trees?

Tom Hiddleston Speaks Revealingly On Loki's Return & Villainy In The Avengers!
Possibly hinting at his "alien" army, Tom Hiddleston discusses Loki's return from Thor to The Avengers, as well his villainy in yet another video interview from D23!
 

Now chatting with The Hollywood Reporter in a somewhat revealing video interview, 'Loki' actor Tom Hiddleston dishes on the the character's mischief & his return from Thor to The Avengers. Possibly hinting at his "alien" army, watch the interview below!


“What happens in the space between the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers is Loki’s made some very shady deals with the gangsters on the streets of the Nine Realms,” Hiddleston tells The Hollywood Reporter at Saturday’s D23 Expo. “At the beginning of Avengers, he comes to earth to subjugate it,” he continues. “And his idea is to rule the human race as their king. And like all the delusional autocrats of human history, he thinks this is a great idea because if everyone is busy worshipping him, there will be no wars.” And when we asked him who he based his portrayal of the villain on, he answered, “I guess there’s a lot of people in the world who feel they don’t belong anywhere and what happens after that is you have to manage that feeling.”

Sarai Givaty Vying for the Role of a Sexy Huntress in Hugh Jackman's THE WOLVERINE
Israelian entertainment blog, Abbanibi, is reporting that Sarai Givaty, well known model and actress in Israel is up for a part.
Courtesy of Abbanibi

ISRAELI HOTTIE SARAI GIVATY IS reportedly doing really well in the auditions for ‘The Wolverine,’ the next installment in the X-Men movie franchise.

Apparently Givaty has already passed two auditions for the role of one of Wolverine’s sexy hunters, and now she’s set for an audition with the movie’s director, James Mangold

Sarai Givaty has already claimed her fame when she guest- starred in the #1 TV show ‘NCIS’ as Ziva’s nemesis, and she recently finish filming ‘Black Velvet’ opposite Ray Wise (‘Twin Peaks,’ ’24′). She’s currently finishing recording her debut album in Israel, from which the first single has already been released, called ‘Paris’.


I saw her guest appearance in NCIS, and she was terrific at playing a strong devious character that was Ziva's adversary. If the huntress role is from the comic books, I can't think of one that would fit the Frank Miller japanese sage.


Pictures are from saraigivaty.com

Law & Order: Los Angeles' Corey Stoll Conveys Interest in Playing Dr. Strange
The actor is generating Oscar buzz for his portrayal of Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen's new movie, Midnight in Paris.




Corey Stoll played LAPD Detective Tomas "TJ" Jaruszalski on NBC's Law & Order: LA. The show also starred Alfred Molina, but was officially canceled on May 13, 2011. Since then Corey Stoll has blown away audiences and critics with his brilliant depiction of the great American writer, Ernest Hemingway.

Corey sat down with the website I Am Rogue for an exclusive interview and they asked him about his desire to be in a superhero movie. After giving his geeky credentials, the writer of the article suggests a superhero for him to play, and Corey excitedly jumps at the proposition.

What follows is an excerpt from the interview

I read in an interview that though you're interesting in continuing to make movies aimed at adults, you'd also be interested in appearing in a superhero movie. So often there's a reluctance to engage with genre material, and I was curious where that impulse comes from for you and if there's any specific superhero for you?

Stoll: [Laughs] Well, I sort of feel like all the superheroes have been taken at this point. They're going down the list now, to the C-list and D-list superheroes. But you know, when I was a kid, I was super-into comic books. In fact, my little sort of scrapbook-wall when I was a kid, there was Spider-Man right next to Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese. So I was both sort of a film nerd and a comic book geek and, you know, like everybody in my generation, really into Star Wars. I sort of started reading comic books after Frank Miller and Alan Moore had sort of broken open that superhero thing where it wasn't just about primary colors and guys slugging it out. There was some real psychological depth and I think, in some ways, the types of stories and the types of characters were opened up in a way in comic books that they weren't in most popular films, actually. And I think there was a complexity and a darkness to a lot of those things that I really related to, that you could only really find in, like, Scorsese movies. So I still really feel connected to that stuff, even though I don't read comic books as much as a used to. It was a combination of incredibly fun stories, but also with the possibility of having some psychological depth and I think the better superhero movies have that. Certainly like Michael Fassbender in the latest X-Men, that's a performance that could be in any movie and would hold up, not just a superhero movie.


Dr. Stange. I think Doctor Strange could be your guy.

Stoll: Oh, yeah, yeah. I would love that. I'm not as familiar with him, but I've read a few.

Thankfully, it's nothing too serious, but after reports last night that a "Chris" had been injured during filming in Los Angeles, his wife took to Twitter to reveal exactly what happened. Details after the jump...
While we still have no idea who he'll be playing in The Dark Knight Rises, Christopher Judge must be involved in some pretty action packed scenes after receiving a "black n' bloodied" eye while filming a stunt last night! After onlookers near the set heard radio calls of "Chris" being injured, many assumed it was Batman himself, Christian Bale. However, Judge's wife took to her Twitter account (link below) and cleared things up for concerned fans.

Josh Dallas (Fandral) Talks THOR 2 And Patty Jenkins As Director!
Talking to IGN Movies, THOR star Josh Dallas confirms that he'll be back as Fandral in the sequel and shares his thoughts on Patty Jenkins coming aboard to direct and much more...
While we already knew that Fandral and the rest of the Warriors Three would be back for THOR 2, Josh Dallas has commented on returning to Asgard as well as his excitement to work with director Patty Jenkins in a recent interview with IGN Movies. Here are a few excerpts from the Q&A, but you can read it in full by clicking on the link below.


On Whether Or Not He'll Be Back As Fandral For THOR 2:


We are! We are planning a return to Asgard, next year. Thor 2 is happening. A great director called Patty Jenkins is directing the sequel. Ken [Branagh] is not directing, which is obviously a huge shame, because he came in and created that world and created the language and the look of the whole thing. But he's kind of set it all up for us and I think he's staying on as a producer. But yeah, there's going to be some more adventures in the Nine Realms.


On Whether Or Not He's Spoken To Patty About The Movie Yet:


I haven't yet, no. But apparently Marvel are in love with her and I'm sure she is going to be a really exciting and interesting choice. She's done some great work before. Marvel always have a really good idea for those directors that are going to come in and they may seem out of left field, but they always have a plan and they're always really smart. And that's what's so great about working for Marvel, because not only are they movie producers and they make these great movies, but they're comic book guys and they love it and they love the characters and they love the stories.


On His Excitement For THOR 2 And Living Up To Fan Expectations:


They've read these comic books since they were children, so they're very attached. They're very attached to these characters and they're very protective of them. So as an actor coming in, you feel that and you know that. And that's what's also exciting about being a part of projects like that, that people are so excited about seeing it before it even comes out, before it's even done. That's really unique and special as an actor, to be part of projects like that. You're like, "I'm playing these characters… I hope I get it right! I hope someone doesn't go, 'You destroyed my childhood!' or whatever." But the great thing about Marvel is that because they're comic book guys and they love it as much as everybody else does, you feel totally supported coming into that, so it's exciting.

Hugh Jackman Says The Wolverine Will Be Filled With Rage; Will Have Less Focus On Other Characters
The Real Steel actor talks more about what to expect from his next outing as The Wolverine, saying that it'll be simpler than X-Men Origins and it'll go more into the character...
Speaking with The Guardian newspaper while promoting Real Steel, Hugh Jackman - perhaps best known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men films - says The Wolverine will be much simpler than 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, saying that it won't have as many characters (he believes that the main flaw was that it had too many characters). He also reveals that the film goes more into the character, and that they have the chance to 'nail the character', which Jackman believes hasn't been done yet.

 


"I think we've got the chance to nail the character this time, to do the hole-in-one. We haven't managed that yet. On the last movie, we complicated it with too many other characters. And there'll be more women this time, which is good. The last one was so masculine!

"The new film will go more into the character. I don't think we've ever seen his rage expressed properly. We're letting go with this one of the whole, 'Who am I? Where did I come from? Oh no, I've lost my memory,' thing. I feel like that's sent us all to sleep. 'Yeah, whatever pal. We're bored! Fine, you were a sushi chef, whatever it was, can we just get on with the story now?'"


Starring Hugh Jackman, James Mangold's The Wolverine is set to begin production next spring, possibly for a 2013 release.

It's not that Wolverine: Origins was "The Shawshank Redemption", or am i mistaken?

Superman Henry Cavill was Nicknamed Fat Cavill
The Man of Steel actor tells Men's Health that he was teased as a child for being overweight. He also talks again about missing out on James Bond.



Weight issues aren't just for mortal men and women. Henry tells Men's Health that he considered himself "round" for much of his life. He didn't start to feel better about his body until he start to train for his new movie Immortals. It was during that training process that Henry found the joys of working out with his fellow cast members. It's that group mentality of having everyone supporting each other as they lifted weights and ate tasteless meals all in the name of their craft.

In this day and age when muscles can be sculpted with airbrushes and computer generated, Henry accomplished his eight-pack abs with hard work and determination. "It's very stressful, Cavill says "waking up Monday morning and saying, 'Can I still see that vein in my abs?'"





Cavill Wasn't Always Super


The superhero began life a chubby little boy. As a child in England, Henry Cavill was known as "Fat Cavill." "It's definitely a shitty nickname," Cavill says, seated in a Chicago sidewalk cafe. "But kids are kids. Kids are cruel. Whatever. I was fat."



Cavill & Zack Snyder on Henry Missing out on Superman


Technically, Man of Steel isn't Cavill's first time wearing Superman's cape. About 7 years ago he was cast as Clark Kent (and alter ego) in the last update of the franchise, Superman Returns. But when the original director, McG, abruptly quit, Cavill was gone with him. As it turned out, that flaccid sequel to the Christopher Reeve series proved to be kryptonite for the career of its replacement star, Brandon Routh.

"He's definitely more Superman now than he was 7 years ago, I think," says Man of Steel director Zack Snyder. "He has been the rock that we can build this movie around." That rock didn't spend the past few years sitting around. "I want to be chosen, not wish I was part of something," Cavill says. "I didn't pine over the fact that I didn't get the last one. It was 'move on, carry on,' whatever!"



Cavill on James Bond


His other high-profile letdown: losing the role of James Bond to Daniel Craig just a year after losing Superman Returns. "I obviously wasn't right for Bond," Cavill admits now, secure that he gave it his all. "I did, and I wasn't right. That's all."

X-Men: First Class is a great example of how you can make a good movie, and it makes you forget about all the timeline issues. Well, maybe it doesn't make you forget about them all, but it does give you a brief case of amnesia so that you can enjoy the film.

Have you tried watching a Bryan Singer X-Men movie since you've seen First Class? It's much tougher then you think it would be. Even watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine which was already hard to watch, just got more difficult when we see Emma Frost as an early twenty year old.


When we asked him if he’d be up for a follow up to Matthew Vaughn’s mutant prequel, McAvoy told us, “I’d be up for it. But the truth is I’m contractually obliged to be up for it because they made us all sign multiple picture deals!”

But does he have any idea where the story will go, following on from the ending of First Class?

“I’ve spoken to Matthew [Vaughn] about ideas, but I can’t tell you what they are because they may or may not be the story. One thing I liked about our one was that it was different from the other three films where the X-Men are the good guys, Wolverine’s figuring out who he is and Magneto is the bad guy.

“This was a completely different thing. Magneto wasn’t a bad guy, we were friends. We’re now set up to go back to the way the other movies are, so we’ve got to try to be cleverer than that.”

Mickey Rourke Criticizes Marvel Studios For "Breaking Jon Favreau's Balls" And More!
Talking at a junket for Immortals earlier today, Mickey Rourke (who played Whiplash in 2010's Iron Man 2) has let rip at Marvel Studios for how they edited his performance and treated director Jon Favreau...
Superhero Hype caught up with Mickey Rourke earlier today, and while discussing his villainous role in Immortals, he had a few things to say about his time working with Jon Favreau and Marvel Studios on Iron Man 2. Now, I definitely remember reports of the actor heading on over to Russian prisons to research the role and there being some talk in the past of not all of his material making the final cut, but it would appear that it was a lot more than we ever realized!


"I try to find the moments where [the villian is] not that cliched, evil bad guy and it's a big fight. I had it on 'Iron Man' and they won. It was going to work for Marvel and them breaking [Jon] Favreau's balls and wanting just a one-dimensional villain. The performance and all the things that I tried to bring to it end up on the f--ing floor. That can cause you not to care as much. To not to want to put that effort in to try and make it an intelligent bad guy or a bad guy who is justified in what his reasons are."


This isn't the first time Marvel Studios have fallen out with an actor in one of their productions. Ed Norton disagreed with the way they handled The Incredible Hulk and his role as Bruce Banner was later given to Mark Ruffalo for 2012's The Avengers. Terrence Howard was replaced by Don Cheadle because he wanted more money. While we don't know the full details behind any of these fall outs, I guess we can add Mickey Rourke to the list of actors who won't be working with the studio again in future!

Henry Cavill Talking About Superman

I have made a concerted effort to focus purely on the source material, which is the comic. I personally believe to focus too much on other people's interpretation of the source material is going to detract from my performance and my interpretation. It's a wonderful opportunity and there is so much material there. And there is such a wealth of...way he is represented across all the comics. That it's a deep well to choose from.

Daily, I'm learning more. Because as I'm experiencing it, as I'm performing...I'm...As you say, if you were to look at George Reeves, and Christopher Reeves and all that. I'm doing bits myself and therefore learning more about the character. Because hopefully if I do my job right, I'll be remembered and maybe fifteen years in the future someone will be saying Henry Cavill when the next chap is playing Superman.


The photos and video are from the day after the green screen shoot with the helicopters. There are more photos of Henry, but they are a bunch of photos from the same two angles. I decided to only include the best image. In the video it starts with the green screen rescue shoot that you've seen, but then goes into the shot of the burning building that you haven't seen. This is most likely the hallway fire that was described in the official memo that I posted the other day.

Adam Rodriguez Chose Male Stripping Over A Role In The Dark Knight Rises
On September 8th it was announced that Rodriguez of CSI: Miami had landed two roles. One, was an unspecified role in the new Batman movie, and the other was for ...



Adam is best known for his role as Detective Eric Delko in the hit television show CSI: Miami. He had a small role lined up in The Dark Knight Rises, but scheduling conflicts with Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike resulted on him passing on the part.

Magic Mike is about a veteran male stripper (Channing Tatum) taking a new stripper (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and showing him the ropes. Matthew McConaughey will be the owner of the club, Xquisite. Adam Rodriguez will be one of the male strippers alongside White Collar's Matt Bomer, and True Blood's Joe Manganiello.


In addition to Magic Mike, there’s talk that you’re doing Dark Knight. Is that true?

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to work on Dark Knight because it directly conflicted with the shooting schedule for Magic Mike. There was no way around it. I’m sure it would have been an incredible experience, but I know it worked out for the best.

Fans are pretty excited you’re starring in Magic Mike. What drew you to the role?

The first thing that got my attention was the fact that Steven Soderbergh was directing. Then I read the script and loved the way the premise of a “male stripper movie” was delivered with style. It had edge without taking itself too seriously and humor without making an ass of itself. The roles of the dancers were sprinkled throughout the script with lots of room for improvisation, and I knew it would be something fun to be a part of. I was right. Best time I’ve ever had on a job. Learned a lot and laughed a lot. - celebuzz.com

Acura to Make and Sell Tony Stark's New Car from THE AVENGERS!
That sexy open-top sports car that Robert Downey Jr. was seen driving on the set of The Avengers was supposed to be a one-off, but Acura has had a change of heart.



The website Jalopnik is reporting that Tony Stark's hot new ride won't just be a fictional vehicle for the movie, but in fact be hitting a showroom near you in the future. The new vehicle that is designed to look like the one in the photos below is an Acura NSX. It will be a hybrid!


According to an Acura dealer national meeting attendee's furtive report from the Aria hotel in Las Vegas, the new Acura NSX that'll reportedly be shown at next month's Detroit Auto Show will look extremely similar to Tony Stark's car in the upcoming Avengers movie. But wait, there's more.

It'll also be, according to our tipster, a "hybrid" — yes, you read that correctly — and "will hit dealer showrooms in 24 months." Also, it'll be AWD. - Jalopnik

Christopher Nolan Discusses The Joker Interrogation Scene In THE DARK KNIGHT
Talking in-depth about the filming and creative process that went in to the intense Batman/Joker interrogation scene in The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan reveals what did and didn't make it into the final cut and more.
Talking to Hero Complex, Christopher Nolan has spoken in great depth about his favourite scene in The Dark Knight - the atmospheric and brutal showdown between Batman and The Joker in the GCPD interrogation room. Below are just a few select excerpts from Nolan's fascinating chat with Geoff Boucher, but to read the interview in full (where the director comments on how the scene was shot, the motivations of the hero and villain as well as the importance of Commissioner Gordon and much more) be sure to click on the link below.

 
"To be honest, it’s pretty easy for me. The scene that is so important and so central to me is the interrogation scene between Batman and the Joker in the film. When we were writing the script, that was always one of the central set pieces that we wanted to crack."

"On the set, we shot it fairly early on. It was actually one of the first things that Heath had to do as the Joker. He told me he was actually pretty excited to tear off a big chunk early on, really get one of the Joker’s key scenes up in the first three weeks of a seven-month shoot. He and I both liked the idea of just diving in, as did Christian [Bale, who portrayed Batman]. We had rehearsed the scene a tiny bit. We had just ripped through it a couple of times in pre-production just to get some slight feel of how it was going to work. Neither of them wanted to go too far with it in rehearsal. They had to rehearse some of the fight choreography, but even with that, we tried to keep it loose and improvisational. They wanted to save it all. We were all pretty excited to get on with a big chunk of dialogue and this big intense scene between these two iconic characters. It was quite bizarre to see Batman across the table across from the Joker [laughs]. I’m glad you asked this. You know, I could actually talk about this scene for hours."

"We had a lot of time to shoot it too, because it was so early on. Quite often, as you get behind on other things and you run toward the end of the shoot, things can get very squeezed. But you tend to schedule the first few weeks very generously to give the crew and the actors and myself time to find our feet and find our pace. So we had a couple of days to do it."

"For me creatively, that had been about inverting the expectation. We’ve all seen so many of these dark movie interrogation scenes where somebody is being given the third degree. We just wanted to completely flip that on its head. And have the bright, harsh, bleak light sort show you the Joker’s make-up and its decay. The Batsuit was redesigned for this film. And unlike the suit that we had in “Batman Begins,” it’s capable of really being shown in incredible detail and still hold up to that kind of scrutiny under that bright light. The suit looked much more real and more like a functional thing this time. The whole scene was about showing something real and brutal and getting this real harshness."

"Originally, at the end of that scene, once the Joker reveals his information, Christian dropped him and then, almost as an afterthought, he kicked him in the head as he walked out of the room. We wound up removing that bit. It seemed a little too petulant for Batman in a way. And really, more than that, what it was is that I liked how Christian played it: When he drops the Joker, he has realized the futility of what he’s done. You see it in his eyes. How do you fight someone who thrives on conflict? It’s a very loose end to be left with."

Another swing and a miss for Marvel Studios as Patty Jenkins (Monster) is the second director to walk away from the project. Click the jump for details.



Patty Jenkins banished from Asgard! According to Deadline Director Patty Jenkins (AMC's The Killing) is departing from Thor 2 because of "creative differences." Patty was the second choice to Game of Thrones director Brian Kirk. Marvel is said to be moving very quickly on Patty's replacement in order to keep the release date, July 26, 2013.

Deadline added that this may not be the last of Patty Jenkins in the superhero genre. I'm not sure if they are speculating or if their source gave them a scoop, but they said, "The feeling is that she’ll probably end up working on one of these superhero films, but perhaps not on a sequel."

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE Pirate Headed To Jail For A Year
While many comic book fans would argue that the creative crimes committed by this movie were worthy of sending the people behind it to jail, X-Men Origins: Wolverine pirate Gilberto Sanchez will spend a year in federal prison.
Panned by critics and fans alike, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not a good comic book movie. Hated for its mostly abysmal interpretation of the beloved character's origin story, it also saw unrecognisable versions of such characters as Emma Frost and Deadpool. Well, the guy who decided to leak an early version of the movie online before its release back in 2009 has finally been sentenced. Here is the full press release courtesy of Deadline.

 
LOS ANGELES – A New York man who admitted illegally uploading to the Internet a pirated, nearly final "workprint" copy of the movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" was sentenced this afternoon to one year in federal prison.

Gilberto Sanchez, 49, who resides in The Bronx and who used screen names that were variations on "skillz," was sentenced by United States District Judge Margaret M. Morrow, who described the offense as "extremely serious." In addition to the prison term, Judge Morrow imposed one year of supervised release and numerous computer restrictions.

"The federal prison sentence handed down in this case sends a strong message of deterrence to would-be Internet pirates," said United States Attorney André Birotte Jr. "The Justice Department will pursue and prosecute persons who seek to steal the intellectual property of this nation."

Sanchez "uploaded the workprint more than one month before theatrical release, he has a prior conviction for a similar offense, he had been regularly uploading pirated movies for four or five years, and did not appear remorseful after charges were brought," prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum.

Sanchez pleaded guilty in March to one count of uploading a copyrighted work being prepared for commercial distribution. When he pleaded guilty, Sanchez admitted that he uploaded a "workprint" copy of the copyrighted "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to www.Megaupload.com in March 2009, about one month before the motion picture was released in theaters. After uploading the Wolverine movie, Sanchez publicized the upload by posting links on two publicly available websites, so that anyone who clicked on the links would have access to the movie and be able to download it. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation owns the copyright to the movie.

"Although Fox was able to get defendant’s Wolverine Workprint removed from his Megaupload account within approximately one day, by then, the damage was done and the film had proliferated like wildfire throughout the Internet, resulting in up to millions of infringements," prosecutors said in court documents.

This case is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Amy Adams Compares Henry Cavill To Kermit The Frog
The actress compared her new leading man in Man of Steel,to her most recent in The Muppets.
 

Amy Adams is starring in the new Muppets film which has earned heaps of praise from various critics. When Total Film asked her to compare her leading men from both The Muppets and Man of Steel, she had the following to say:



Henry Cavill is very Kermitty! There is a humility to Henry and that’s one of the reasons his Superman is going to be so compelling. He has this beautiful face and humble spirit and that’s really a hard combination to come upon.”


Amy's comments seem to only convince me even more that Henry Cavill is the ideal actor to play The Man of Steel.

When news broke that Patty Jenkins was off Thor 2, the obvious big question was who is going to take over for her. Marvel had narrowed their search down to two directors in Daniel Minahan and Alan Taylor. Now today, according to Deadline, Marvel have settled on Alan Taylor to helm Thor's next solo motion picture journey. Taylor's credits include Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and Nurse Jackie.

From Deadline:

 


Marvel Studios has found its Thor 2 director. I’m told that Marvel has set Alan Taylor, who was widely rumored to be on the short list to replace Patty Jenkins. Jenkins got the job but then fell out over differences with Marvel on the sequel.


Taylor joins returning scribe Don Payne, who will again return to write Thor's tale, along with stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tom Hiddleston. Thor 2 will be released on November 15, 2013.

Could Tahmoh Penikett Be the Latest Addition to the Cast of MAN OF STEEL?
The information originally comes from the Internet Movie Database page of the movie, so you may take this with a grain of salt before we see any official announcement. According to the report, Penikett will play a character named Emerson, who is speculated to be Grant Emerson, better known as Damage, the son of Al Pratt (the original Atom). Check out the report and speculation by Cosmic Book News below...


It appears as if Battlestar Galactica's Tahmoh Penikett has been cast in the Man of Steel as "Emerson." IMDb has Penikett listed in the new Superman movie, where we've heard of at least a few additional cast members confirmed as well. Tahmoh Penikett could be playing the character of Grant Emerson, the DC Comics superhero known as Damage. What could be interesting in regards to the Man of Steel, is that Damage accidently blew up Atlanta where he was "recruited" by Sarge Steel to be a part of the government version of the Titans. Steel was head of the government's Department of Metahuman Affair/superhuman activities. Now, Penikett could just be playing a member of Colonel Hardy's squad, but could Zack Snyder be bringing in the big guns to take care of the aliens? Or could we just have a slight skirmish between Damage and Superman, with Supes stopping Damage from causing massive chaos?

News on Ant-Man (from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz writer and director Edgar Wright) was slow for a while, but the success of Marvel's The Avengers and some hints from both Kevin Feige and Edgar Wright himself - find that HERE - reignited interest in the long talked about adaptation. Well, @TwitchFilm has revealed something very interesting indeed, as you can see from the Tweet below.

Wright is currently teaming up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for At World's End, but some have already speculated that he will start shooting Ant-Man for Marvel either at the end of this year or sometime during 2013 (putting it on track to be the mystery 2014 release from the studio). This is a reliable source and the Cannes Film Festival seems like a fitting location for news like this to hit. With rumours like this now kicking off, here's hoping it spurs Disney and Marvel Studios to finally make an official announcement.

New photos from the web site thesuperficial.com show that the Iron Patriot armor will be making its way to the big screen in Iron Man 3. The Armor was first seen in 2009's Dark Avengers comics following the events of Secret Invasion. In the comics Norman Osbourne is the first to put the Iron Patriot armor on, but with Sony owning the rights to pretty much everything Spider-Man related that rules this particular villain out. In the photos you can see actor James Badge Dale wearing the Iron Patriot armor

Will Beall To Pen JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie; Michael Goldenberg Writing WONDER WOMAN

Well, the success of the rival team does indeed matter to others. With The Avengers becoming a true global phenomenon, other studios are also very much looking at Marvel's direction to see if their team-up of a lifetime with characters that have their own films, will actually work both at the box office and if the audience will accept it. Short answer: yes, it works. Now, according to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures has set Will Beall to pen the script for Justice League film, which is a long-awaited big screen adaptation based on the team of DC superheroes. More below:

"... Warner Brothers quietly began getting its own all-star superhero pic back on track, tapping "Gangster Squad" scribe Will Beall to write "Justice League," based on the WB-controlled stable of DC Comics superheroes."

One thing that is also mentioned, is that Michael Goldenberg, one of the Green Lantern scribes, was hired to write Wonder Woman film. As far as other properties, Brad Peyton is working on a draft for Lobo, and as we already know, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green were set to write The Flash. But, no updates on that just yet.

Hugh Jackman In The Process Of Prepping For His Return As Wolverine

Hugh Jackman is busy working out in Barcelona gyms to get in shape for his role in director James Mangold's The Wolverine. And the recent photo (below) of Hugh shows him looking ripped as ever. The actor, who has been busy filming Les Miserables, took time-off from his gym regime to speak at 20th Century Fox International’s CineEurope presentation in Barcelona, Spain. He described his role as mutant Wolverine as being "the backbone of my [movie] career".

At one point it was indicated that shooting on the berserker mutant's next outing was to begin in 2011. Unfortunately, as a result of Hugh's commitment to Les Miserables, the commencement date was delayed. However, he did tell the theatre on Wednesday (June 20) that filming on The Wolverine will begin in "about 6 weeks". He also stated that he is excited to get his claws into the character again because he believes that "there's that great movie to be made that defines his character.".

The script, written by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback, is said to depict Logan heading to Japan where hr encounters The Silver Samurai. The story takes inpiration from the 1982 series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.

Another term which Hugh used and one which we have heard being thrown around a bit is "badass". X-Men Origins: Wolverine was received generally negatively by fans. Nevertheless, fans have been promised that the new Wolverine movie will be far more berserker and badass than before.

So far there is no other casting news on who will star alongside Hugh. The film is scheduled for release on July 26, 2013.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Coming May 16th, 2014

Earlier today, Latino Review revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's other 2014 movie. Variety has now confirmed this rumour (adding further credibility to the initial claims) and says that the studio are indeed planning to release it on May 16th, 2014. They mention that their reason for travelling back in time from the 31st Century is to, "help to battle the Badoon, an evil alien race that attempts to conquer Earth's solar system." However, it is not made clear whether or not this is the exact direction in which the film will go, although it matches up with what we heard earlier today. Apparently, Marvel are very happy with the script written by Nicole Perlman, a relative unknown who came out of Disney's screenwriting program. Their sources also tell them that the studio has prioritized this over Black Panther, although Marvel Studios is also said to be working on Ant-Man, Dr. Strange and The Inhumans (as well as The Avengers 2 in 2015).

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter also claims to have heard from reliable sources that a Guardians of the Galaxy movie will be announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and reveal that, "Those in the know say the project is in line with Avengers in tone in the sense there is plenty of comedic elements on display." Nicole Perlman has written two drafts of the screenplay (she also impressed Marvel with a Black Widow solo script) and worked on Thor. Marvel is said to be on the hunt for a director.

Josh Trank Officially Set For FANTASTIC FOUR Reboot; David Slade Exits DAREDEVIL Reboot

Although Twentieth Century Fox has no big announcements for this week's San Diego Comic-Con, the ever-reliable Deadline has obtained various updates surrounding the studios' Marvel property slate. The site has revealed finalized plans for the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, in addition to a setback for the Daredevil film.

Deadline suggests that, despite having many projects in the works, Chronicle director Josh Trank is in final negotiations to helm the Fantastic Four reboot next. Also, the film will be the next Marvel project on Fox's radar to move into production following The Wolverine & X-Men: First Class sequels. A release date has been locked.

In regards to the Daredevil remake, the site further reports that David Slade has dropped the project, while Fox has been on the hunt for a new director since. With a completed screenplay they're happy, they're hoping to kick off production for the remake before the The Man Without Fear's rights revert back to Marvel Studios. The reason for Slade's departure is timing; mainly having to direct the pilot of a Hannibal series.

Josh Trank was also on Sony's radar to helm their Spidey spin-off, Venom, however, he'll direct F4 first.

Sebastian Stan Will Return As Bucky In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

As an addendum to the Anthony Mackie/Falcon casting, Variety report that Sebastian Stan will indeed be back for the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger - now titled "The Winter Soldier". This isn't exactly unexpected, especially when you factor in that Stan has signed a six-picture deal with Marvel, and the title refers to his character!
 
For those unfamiliar with the comic storyline, Stan will - unless there are some drastic alterations made - be playing the antagonist this time around, as he returns after apparently falling to his death as The Winter Soldier, a bionic armed, brainwashed assassin. But now that Cap has some help in the form of The Falcon, don't expect Bucky to be the only one giving the heroes headaches.

Marvel and director Alan Taylor are currently in London prepping the official commencement of filming for the anticipated sequel, Thor: The Dark World. And although primary cast additions have yet to unveil, casting calls for background roles apparently have. According to a Tumblr user, a casting call for the anticipated sequel has revealed producers are in need of extras that're particularly experts with fire. The Tumblr user writes:


“‘Men of Fire

For the a new Marvel Super Hero feature film we are looking for men who are skilled in playing with fire to pretend to be warriors.

The Requirements:
You must be highly skilled with playing with fire example skills include - Spinning, Fire Sticks, Fire Breathing, Fire eating etc’”.

UPDATE: The User has offered verbatim info, which an additional source (Universal Extras) confirms. How do you think fire dancing, eating & breathing relates to Thor's next outing? It's likely to involve earthbound scenes, but more interestingly, it could be one of the other "dark worlds" the Asgardians are bound to pay a visit. Perhaps, the casting call alludes to the sequel exploring Muspelheim, the realm of eternal fire, and the home of the Fire Demons and their ruler Surtur. That could be in addition to the strongly-believed Dark Elves.

The Answer To Where The Joker Was In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Revealed?

While there were rumours that Heath Ledger's Joker would make a cameo (perhaps using unused footage from The Dark Knight) in The Dark Knight Rises, it accounted to nothing more than talk and Christopher Nolan said on numerous occasions before the release of the film that he wouldn't even mention the villain as a sign of respect to the actor. Nuke The Fridge have posted the following excerpt from Greg Cox's novelization of the film, perhaps shedding some insight into why the villain wasn't one of those who was seen escaping from Blackgate.

Now that the Dent Act had made it all but impossible for the city’s criminals to cop an insanity plea, it (Blackgate Prison) had replaced Arkham Asylum as a preferred location for imprisoning both convicted and suspected felons. The worst of the worst were sent here, except for the Joker, who, rumor had it, was locked away as Arkham’s sole remaining inmate. Or perhaps he had escaped. Nobody was really sure. Not even Selina.

UPDATE: Revealing Filming And Scene Details Surface For THOR: THE DARK WORLD

As principal photography nears kickoff for Marvel's anticipated sequel, Thor: The Dark World, the folks over at ComingSoon.Net have received quite a bit interesting information. Highlighting a new filming location, confirming the movie's production title, and revealingly what the scene(s) will consist of, the info reads:

“We're writing to let you know about some filming about to be undertaken in Bourne Wood in the coming months. Please find a brief overview & introduction to this project. “Thursday Mourning” is the working title of a major feature film. It is comic book adaptation set in another "fictional realm." We plan to start prep in Bourne woods in the week of 6th August for a period of 5 weeks where a temporary set will be constructed within the bowl area.

Filming is scheduled to take place for approximately 10 days from 10th September TBC. All of the proposed sequence is due to take place during the day. There is no night filming. We will be establishing a fictional village set in another realm, with yurts and village like dressing in the bowl. The sequence involves a battle between two kingdoms, ending in our comic book hero arriving to save the day. The sequence will involve a substantial amount of Stunts and controlled special effects all within the hours 0700 - 1900hrs.

We plan to use most of the areas that are usually occupied by film units for all our support vehicles. The sequence will involve approximately 300 extras who will arrive in the early hours prior to call time to go through costume and makeup, which we will undertake in marquees positioned on site. As always we will endeavour to keep any noise disruption to an absolute minimum.

We will have very friendly security looking after our set and trucks (most of whom you have probably met before) and to ensure that all members of the public can still enjoy the woods and walk your dogs as normally as possible. We may have to seal our set off periodically to members of the public for safety reasons as there will be quite a lot of activity at certain times. On completion of filming, we will remove all temporary sets and associated equipment and will be completely vacated from Bourne woods by the 13th October.”

ANT-MAN Gearing For A London Shoot; 2014 Release Likely?

Latino Review has broken yet another Marvel Studios scoop. The site (who revealed earlier this summer that Guardians Of The Galaxy would be Marvel's other 2014 project) now says that, following the end of Thor: The Dark World's production this summer, Marvel will begin production on Edgar Wright's Ant-Man in London. The film has been in development for some time, so those who have been looking forward to seeing Wright's take on the Marvel character should be excited to hear this news.

Wright is currently set to film The World's End later this year, reteaming with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Thor: The Dark World will begin production in London next month. So production on Ant-Man should begin sometime next year, as was previously stated by Pegg.

Also, Latino Review says that it's looking likely that Ant-Man will be Marvel's third 2014 release, which has been rumored since the recent debut of Wright's test footage at San Diego Comic-Con. Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the aforementioned Guardians Of The Galaxy are set to be released on April 4th and August 1st, respectively, in 2014. Stay tuned to CBM for all news on Ant-Man.

While we're discussing Thor: The Dark World, Jaimie Alexander (who plays Sif in the first Thor and will reprise the role for the sequel) posted the following on Twitter, teasing her character's new costume. The sequel (directed by Alan Taylor) is set to hit theaters November 8th, 2013.

Bryan Singer Confirms X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST; Teases Connectivity With Past Films

Talking to IGN Movies, Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-2) has confirmed that Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class sequel will be called Days of Future Past. The title has been rumoured for a while now, but this is the first official word we've heard from someone involved with the sequel. Revealing that it will deal with, "aspects of that comic" it is based on, Singer seemingly hints that time travel will indeed play a role as he discusses an expanded universe and more connectivity between these prequels and the past X-Men movies. Does this mean that we'll see Hugh Jackman's Wolverine appear? How about the "Original Five" X-Men? Stay tuned for further details as we get ever closer to the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past in July, 2014.


"I can say that it's being written right now and it will start shooting in a few months. It's going to be very ambitious; it's called Days of Future Past and it deals with aspects of that comic, but also some very new things. I don't want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughn will be directing and I'm totally excited about it."

"I think there's a strong desire to broaden out the universe. I mean, the X-Men universe is every bit on its own as big as the Marvel universe. I think it's time to reach out and explore it and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films as Marvel has done so well. You may seem some of that."

Hugh Jackman Shows New Look For THE WOLVERINE; Comments On Filming In Kurnell

Once again thanking Sutherland Shire for allowing Fox to film his X-Men: Origins sequel, The Wolverine, actor Hugh Jackman displayed his new look, facially, for the film sans the unbreakable claws. Also sharing with the Leader a downside to playing the mutant, in regards to filming, check out the photos and what he says below.

Dressed & made up as his character Logan, the actor personally thanked mayor Carol Provan:

“It’s a beautiful spot here. This is the first time I’ve been to Kurnell and the location is great. Yesterday I was up at half past three and this morning I was up at quarter to five. They got to do some shots without me this morning, so I got a bit of a sleep in. This is the second and final day of shooting on-site at Kurnell. Production for the film will continue around Sydney and a few weeks in Japan before it wraps up mid-November.”

Hugh Jackman Arrives On "Yukon" Set Of THE WOLVERINE

The other day I was informed by my source that Hugh Jackman's character Wolverine/Logan will be headed into town to buy camping gear. As you can see in the set photos below an old hardware shop in Picton has been converted into a hiking/camping shop. Also, a bar will be featured in the movie, that is why you will see a mural in of a moose promoting "Ed's Bar."

Why is this important? What does it mean? Well a savvy CBM user pointed out that this could be scenes emulating the beginning of Frank Miller's "Japanese Saga" in "Wolverine #1." In that version of the tale Wolverine/Logan is seen in the Canadian Rockies pursuing a man-eating grizzly bear. During the eventual confrontation Wolverine notices that the bear has an arrow lodged in it's back. A closer examination reveals that the tip of the arrow had traces of poison and is the cause of the bear erratic behavior.

Wolverine then seeks out the hunter that poisoned the bear. He picks up his scent from the bear's cave and follows it all the way to the local pub, "Josie's Bar 'N' Grill." Wolverine identifies the hunter and when approached a one-sided fight encures.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Joins THOR THE DARK WORLD As Dual Villain Kurse/Algrim

As filming takes place overseas in London, a surprising new addition to the ensemble cast of Marvel Studios' Alan Taylor-helmed Thor: The Dark World has been revealed. According to Variety, British G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has joined the anticipated sequel in an even more surprising villain role.

“Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has joined the cast of Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" as one of the lead villains, playing the dual roles of Kurse and Algrim.”

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who's celebrating his 45th birthday today, is best known for his role on the television series Lost and Oz, as well The Mummy Returns and The Bourne Identity movie. And according to Marvel.com, his character, Kurse, was originally Algrim the Strong, one of the Dark Elves of the extra dimensional realm of Svartalfheim who served the Dark Elves' ruler, Malekith the Accursed.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD Gearing Up For Filming At the Stonehenge Monument

As previously noted, the commencement of filming for Thor: The Dark World is set for the first week of September. And while it's already expected to explore underground tunnels in London, the woodland hills in Bourne Wood, and the island country of Iceland, another rather ancient shooting location for the upcoming Marvel sequel has been spotted.

According to Lucjan Kaliniecki of Twitter, and other sources, filming for the Alan Taylor-directed Thor followup is gearing up at the Stonehenge prehistoric monument, located in southwest England. While famous for being one of the world's last unexplained structures, the circular setting of large upright stones is believed to be over 5,000 years old.

Although the ancient landmark of Wiltshire county has appeared in many movies, BBC's fifth Doctor Who series' big finale is most notable for shooting at the location.

It is unclear whether the ancient monument will only feature in earthbound scenes of Thor: The Dark World, or if it's doubling for one of the Nine realms the sequel will explore. However, the Stonehenge has made several appearances in the Marvel Comics Universe, describing it as a “mystic place.” At one point, it was used as a portal.

According to reports that I have translated, the scene being filmed at the Buddhist temple, was a funeral. A grand funeral no less. Today was the last day of filming at the temple, and the crew is expected to head to Hiroshima next.

First Look At Rila [frick]ushima As Yukio In THE WOLVERINE

Another photo has surfaced from yesterday's filming of The Wolverine, that took place at the Zojoji Temple. This time it features our first look at Rila in her Yukio costume, and with an unexpected coloring of red in her hair.

Rila has the honor of playing, in my opinion, the best role in the film. Yukio is a blood-thirsty assassin that is ordered to kill Logan/Wolverine, but soon develops a crush on him when she witnesses his exceptional killing prowess. She is one of the two love interests in Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's "Japanese Saga," with Mariko being the other.

Mariko is frightened by Logan's brutality, while Yukio smiles with glee as Wolverine slices though his enemies. The two love interests represent paths that Logan must choose. With Yukio the path is easy, he is already the man/animal that she loves. The more savage he becomes, the more excited she becomes. However the path to Mariko's heart may be more difficult, but it will lead Logan on a journey of self-control and honor, which deep down is what he truly wants.

Olympic Silver Medalist Joins The Cast Of THE WOLVERINE

Multiple eyewitnesses have reported seeing Naoya Ogawa on the set of Hugh Jackman's The Wolverine. He holds a record of seven medals at the World Judo Championships and is a two-time National Wrestling Alliance world heavyweight champion.
nailbiter111 - 9/6/2012

Apparently Naoya Ogawa has joined the cast of James Mangold's The Wolverine. Multiple eyewitnesses have seen him on set filming a scene that involves Hugh Jackman's character, Logan/Wolverine, chasing Naoya through the streets. Since the film is about Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's "Japanese Saga," and the main villains have already been cast, I would assume Naoya Ogawa is playing a member of The Hand. In the comic book Logan/Wolverine is left in the streets after losing a fight and The Hand try to kill him. Of course this doesn't go very well for The Hand.

Will "The Jean Grey School For Higher Learning" Feature In THE WOLVERINE?
 Spotted in a leaked set photo from The Wolverine, it appears as if "The Jean Grey School For Higher Learning" will play a role in the upcoming prequel. Coincidence or proof that the film will have a connection to Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: Days Of Future Past? Check it out!Josh Wilding - 9/9/2012
 

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was an epic disappointment. Between the fact that they butchered the origin story of the character and threw in a bunch of mutant cameos which still haunt the nightmares of many a comic book lover ("Deadpool"...) it was not the solo movie that Wolverine deserved. Well, James Mangold's take on the character may just make up for that. A standalone film, it looks set to take Logan to Japan, while classic bad guys such as Viper and Silver Samurai all look set to be introduced. However, The Wolverine may not quite be as "standalone" as we originally thought. The Geek Files have come across the following set photo which seemingly reveals that "The Jean Grey School For Higher Learning" will somehow feature in the film. It could of course be a random easter egg or simple coincidence, but it's not hard to imagine Logan renaming and reopening the school following the deaths of Jean Grey, Charles Xavier and Cyclops in X-Men: The Last Stand.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD Gets 2 Minor Cast Additions

Now taking place beyond the eyesight of potential paparazzi, principal photography is still in full swing for Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. And according to Shepherd Management Limited casting agency, 2 of their notable clients have signed on for the anticipated Alan Taylor-directed sequel. They've announced that British actor Clive Russell & Welsh-American actor Richard Brake have unspecified, but presumably minor, roles in the film.

Clive Russell, 66, has appeared in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes and its 2011 sequel, numerous British television series, and he was recently cast as Ser Brynden Tulley the Blackfish in HBO’s 3rd season of Game of Thrones. Richard Brake, 47, is best known for playing the DC character Joe Chill in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins. And he's also appeared in Hannibal Rising, Water for Elephants, & alongside Ray Stevenson in Outpost.

From left to right: Richard Brake, Clive Russel

Other news related to Thor: The Dark World, that’s rather spoilerific, comes from a well-known stuntman who’s currently working on the film. And although it's not too hard to find, I won't name or link the stuntman/actor and where he posted the following, for obvious reasons. But alluding to a scene he was filming for the sequel earlier this month, the post read: (highlight below to read possible spoiler in its entirety)

“Currently running away from a large spaceship as it crash lands into a palace I'm guarding. (as you do!). Can't say anymore than that. Shhhh.”

More news related to the much-anticipated sequel; Fandral actor Zachary Levi recently tweeted a hilarious picture from the Shepperton Studios, where filming is also taking place, alongside Heimdall actor Idris Elba. Teasing his blonde 'do and goatee that he grew out and dyed just for the Dashing role, check out Levi’s Instagram-filtered photo below.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD To Shoot Scenes At London's Butlers Wharf And in Greenwich

Seemingly finished with shooting at Bourne Wood, the production of Marvel's anticipated sequel, Thor: The Dark World will soon be showcasing London in a major way, according to filming notices recently distributed. While sequences at both locations will involve aerial shots, among other things, London's Butlers Wharf is on Marvel's radar before Greenwich district. The 1st letter is courtesy of Edvvc, and the 2nd via one of our readers.

I am writing to you to inform you of our plans to film a scene for the forthcoming feature film entitled "Thursday Mourning" at Butlers Wharf on Monday 8th October from 0700 untill 1300.

The scene to be filmed at Butlers Wharf will ultimately form part of a visual effects sequence running through streets of London. We plan to film using specially adapted 2 meter long model helicopter, know as a Heli-Cam, which has a sophisticated camera mounted on the front. The Heli-Cam will start its Journey over the water, in the middle of the dock alongside New Concordia Whard. It will then fly under the footbridge and then turn left towards Tower Bridge, flying close to the handrail opposite Browns restaurant. We may also film a similar scene on the pavement outside the Cantina restaurant.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thursday Mourning" is the working title of a major feature film and we are currently working with many iconic locations across central London. One of our key locations in the film is the Old Naval College at Greenwich and we have various scenes to film that involve the Thames at high tide, camera boats, and aerial filming from a helicopter. To achieve this, we have to film before the clocks change, and the tides are right, and this has fallen on Sunday 21st October

We are currently liaising with all the official bodies regarding permissions. To achieve the aerial shots from the Helicopter, we plan so fly from the North Shore (Over Island Gardens), directly south to the South Shore of the Thames, starting at 500ft descending to 100 ft. (Almost exactly where the Cable wire camera was positioned for the Olympic coverage). We are currently discussing our plans with the Port of London Authority (PLA) and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and a notice to mariners will be issued in due course.

We need to achieve this when the river is quiet from commercial vessels and the tides are right, which means we are proposing to shoot with the helicopter between the hours of 0700 and 1100.

The Helicopter will be in the air for 10-minute intervals through out the morning. As we film, we will need to hold river traffic with PLA river launches, and location security will assist with asking pedestrians and cyclists to wait momentarily on the Thames Path for short periods as the helicopter flies overhead. When the Helicopter is not required it will travel East and land back at a predetermined landing pad.

Jaimie Alexander Injured On The Set Of THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Fans were shocked yesterday to learn that Jaimie Alexander (@JaimieAlexander) narrowly escaped being paralysed after an accident on the set of Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World. Online speculation has led many to come to the conclusion that the beautiful actress may have fallen from a horse, butregardless, she is thankfully in good spirits AND health as can be seen from the Tweets below. It is thought that Sif will have a much larger role in the Alan Taylor helmed sequel and Jaimie will next be seen in January's The Last Stand opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. Get well soon!

First Look At Kelly Hu As China White On The CW's ARROW

We've known that Kelly Hu would be featured in The CW's Arrow as China White since San Diego Comic-Con, but other than a few teases from Stephen Amell, we've heard nothing. Now, with the show soon debuting we finally have our first look at how Kelly Hu (X-2) will appear on the show. China White originates from the comic book Green Arrow: Year One, however according to Zap2It, she'll be hired by a criminal by the name of Martin Somers to take out Laurel Lance, as she tries to take him down with the law. Perhaps we'll get our first look at Deadshot soon, as well. China White is expected to appear in Episode 2, presumably airing on October 17th.

Famke Janssen Tells Fans To "Stay Tuned" About A Possible Return As 'Jean Grey'

Will we see Famke Janssen's 'Jean Grey' in X-Men: Days of Future Past? Well, the actress refuses to reveal anything too concrete, but does tell fans that "one never knows" when it comes to a possible return as the character who met her maker at the hands of Wolverine back in The Last Stand.
Josh Wilding - 10/1/2012


Since it was revealed that Matthew Vaughn's sequel to X-Men: First Class would be titled Days of Future Past, speculation has been running rampant that time travel will factor into the film (thereby meaning the return of some, or all, of the cast members from the original trilogy). Patrick Stewart has repeatedly hinted at a possible return as Professor Xavier, despite being killed off in Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand. However, an after-credits scene DID show him waking up in the body of a coma patient. Well, now it's Famke Janssen who seems to be dropping subtle hints about making a return as Jean Grey!


"One never knows," she said coyly in a recent interview with MTV News. "Jean Grey, the Phoenix...she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows." However, the actress made it clear that she's currently "in no position to say anything" too definitive, finishing up by admitting that she actually has no idea (or so she says) and that fans should "Stay tuned."

THE WOLVERINE: New Set Photos With Hugh Jackman; Plus A Scene Description

The Wolverine is back in Australia after spending several weeks filming in Japan. Since September 26 they've been prepping and filming scenes at The Chinese Garden of Friendship, which is located in the heart of Sydney. At that location photographers were able to snap some images of Hugh Jackman (Logan) and his co-star Rila Fu-kushima, who is playing Yukio. They will continue to film at that location for another three days.

While I don't have details about those scenes, I do have details about an upcoming scene that will be filmed this Saturday in Parramatta, between Smith and George Street.

Shot Sequence Description - A couple being pursued on foot as they dodge through traffic in a Japanese city street. They are nearly hit by passing vehicles but manage to keep going. A man runs along roof tops of adjacent buildings above shooting their pursuers with a crossbow. Possible simulated crossbow shooting from a rooftop. - Source

Christopher Eccleston Confirms Filming In Iceland For THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Continuing tomorrow at London's Butlers Wharf, principal photography for Marvel's Thor: The Dark World is scheduled this month to “showcase London in a major way.” However, we've now received confirmation that filming will soon head north, overseas in Iceland, which was first reported back in early August. While attending The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival 2012, ‘Malekith the Accursed’ actor Christopher Eccleston discussed the villain role, confirming he'll take part in the scenes that'll be filmed in the Nordic European island country.

THE WOLVERINE: First Glimpse Of Silver Samurai & The Claws Come Out

Korean American actor Will Yun Lee (Elektra & Hawaii Five-0) was finally spotted on the set of The Wolverine. He will be playing the main villain in the film, Kenuichio Harada, aka The Silver Samurai. A mutant that is dressed head-to-toe in silver armor. He has the ability to charge his swords with an electrical current, and they can slice through any substance... except for adamantium of course!

Besides our first look at the Silver Samurai, we also get to see Wolverine's claws for the first time as Hugh Jackman's stunt double is suspended from wires for this particular scene. I'm told the scene involves a group of ninjas attacking him, but once the claws come out they hightail it out of there.

Clark Gregg's ‘Agent Coulson’ Confirmed To Live Again On Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series

During today's Marvel Television panel at New York Comic-Con, which is still underway, the Head of Television for Marvel, Jeph Loeb, announced that Marvel's The Avengers late fan-favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent, Phil Coulson, will live again! Backed by Clark Gregg himself, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon appeared in a video where they confirmed that Gregg will surely reprise the role in the planned S.H.I.E.L.D. series with ABC.

“We all love Clark Gregg, there's no doubt about that,” Whedon said. “From before we made 'The Avengers,' we discussed whether there was a way for him to be a part of the Marvel Universe, perhaps a part of a TV show even after his death. … The fact of the matter is, as much as we love him, now that I'm really running Marvel, I like to keep a type of artistic integrity, which means we don't stretch the bounds of reality.” Marvel producer Kevin Feige added that, “There was never going to be a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' show without Agent Phil Coulson!” “He's headlining the S.H.I.E.L.D. show and always was.”said Whedon.

For the full panel's coverage, head over to Comic Book Resources. This news comes as a surprise, considering all of the outlandish fan-made possibilities that'd allow Coulson's revival, which Clark Gregg has modestly dismissed. Anyhow, Gregg is the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot's first cast member, with details revealed earlier this month for five other characters that'll appear. And it's also unclear how exactly Agent Phil Coulson will be revived, whether it's as a life model decoy or if the series will be a prequel to the events of Marvel's The Avengers. But what do you think?

Last month, Joss Whedon said the series will be adjacent to the Marvel cinematic universe, but is structured so that it deals with agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. who are “the humans in a superhero world and how they deal with that and how it makes them vulnerable.” Whedon penned the pilot with his brother, Jed Whedon & his wife Maurissa Tancharoen. And the trio will also executive produce the pilot with Jeffrey Bell and Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb.

Jonathan Nolan Talks THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Ending, 'Robin' And Adapting Another DC Property


So, was what Alfred saw in the closing few minutes of The Dark Knight Rises real? Co-writer Jonathan Nolan discusses how that ending can be interpreted by audiences, addresses the addition of 'Robin' to the franchise and reveals whether he would be interested in tackling another DC Comics adaptation.
Josh Wilding - 10/14/2012

Talking to IGN Comics at the New York Comic Con, Jonathan Nolan (brother of Christopher, and co-writer of The Dark Knight Rises) has shared his thoughts on the various interpretations of the way in which the third and final Batman movie ended, comparing it to Memento. He also comments on the addition of both 'Robin' and 'Catwoman' to the franchise, before revealing whether or not he would one day consider being involved in yet another big screen adaptation of one of DC Comics' many properties.

ANT-MAN Casting Call Says Filming Starts January 2013?

Marvel sure does love to shoot its films in London. The casting call reports tht Avi Arad's Arad Productions along with Edgar Wright's Big Talk Productions are currently in the pre-production stages of the "highly anticipated Marvel Studios action adventure sci-fi thriller feature film 'Ant-Man'". Filming is reportedly scheduled to start January 2013 for a November 6, 2015 release date. I can only speculate that the the early start is to allow Edgar Wright ample time to perfect a tricky character as well as allow the VFX team to nail-down the growing/shrinking visuals. The project will shoot at Pinewood Studios in England, and other locations around London and the United Kingdom.

First Look At Sir Ben Kingsley As ‘The Mandarin’ In New Still Photo From IRON MAN 3!

“A lot of this movie is about characters going back into the shadows for various reasons and characters who have been in the shadows coming out and into the light for the first time,” says Marvel Studios president of Production, Kevin Feige. “It is Tony who, for various reasons, finds himself receding into the darkness. I don’t mean emotional darkness, I mean literally ducking out of the spotlight. And we’ll see other characters stepping up who have pulled strings from the background, starting to show their hand.” Regarding The Mandarin not being Chinese, like in the comics, Feige says “It’s less about his specific ethnicity than the symbolism of various cultures and iconography that he perverts for his own end.”

Depending on your opinion of Arrow, this will either make or ruin your day. According to TV Line, after just two episodes, the CW has made the decision to pick up the series for a full 22-episode run. That's about all the details we have right now, but after the series premiere became the network's most watched episode of a TV show in over three years, this isn't really all that surprising (especially after ratings dropped by only 15% by the second episode).

 “ER” veteran Ming-Na has signed on for another acronym-driven project.
Ming-Na, who starred on the medical drama “ER” for nine years, has signed on for “Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D.” pilot, which will be written by “Avengers” writer-director Joss Whedon, his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen (“Dollhouse”).

The pilot revolves around the titular peace-keeping force featured in Marvel comics and the movies that they spawned, including “The Avengers.”

Ming-Na will play agent Melinda May.

Whedon will also executive-produce the project along with Jed, Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb of Marvel Television if it goes into production, and is attached to direct, schedule permitting.

“The Avengers” actor Clark Gregg, who played Agent Coulson in the big-screen superhero epic, has also signed on for the pilot, which comes via ABC Studios and Marvel Television.

Ming-Na’s other recent television work includes runs on “Two and a Half Men,” as well as the sci-fi offerings “SGU Stargate Universe” and “Eureka.”

Audi's First Electric Supercar To Feature In IRON MAN 3

Parting ways for a custom Acura NSX in Marvel's The Avengers big assembly, an Iron Man 3 set photo has revealed playboy Tony Stark will be reunited with the Audi R8; the 1st all-electric one in fact!
DCMarvelFreshman- 10/26/2012



Despite reports that Marvel's playboy billionaire Tony Stark will get a sleek new 2014 Bugatti Veyron for his third solo cinematic outing, a photo recently surfaced via GTSpirit, picturing Robert Downey Jr. on the Iron Man 3 set alongside his beloved Audi R8. However, this is no ordinary Audi. Judging by the graphic imprinted on its windshield, this is Audi's first Electric supercar, the R8 E-Tron. The supercar's inclusion in the Shane Black-directed movie is a actually a surprise because it was reported just days ago that Audi was cancelling plans to develop the all-electric R8 E-Tron for mass production. So, in a way, the Audi R8 E-Tron is being featured in Iron Man 3 exclusively.

Anyhow, this news doesn't exactly debunk reports that Stark will be seen behind the wheels of 2014 Bugatti Veyron. However, given that Tony parted ways with Audi for a customized Acura briefly in Marvel's The Avengers, it's great to know the two are being reunited. What do you think?

Bryan Singer Set To Direct X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Last week, X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn left production on the film's highly anticipated sequel, Days Of Future Past. We also heard that Bryan Singer - who launched the X-Men film franchise with 2000's X-Men and 2003's X2: X-Men United - was the studio's top choice to take over directing duties for the film. Now, Deadline confirms that Singer will helm X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which is described as "apocalyptic" by creative consultant Mark Millar. Additionally, Vaughn is near a deal to produce, alongside writer Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. Singer's next film, Warner Bros.' Jack The Giant Slayer, has been slated for a March 1st, 2013 release.

Most of the cast members from First Class - which includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence - is set to return for the sequel. 20th Century Fox hope that they can make the film's July 18th, 2014 release date. Filming is said to be commencing in early 2013, after Lawrence wraps up Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

UPDATE: In their article reporting the news, Bleeding Cool say that they've heard that there is a "meaningful number" of cast members from the original X-Men film who will be present in Days Of Future Past. Patrick Stewart (Professor X) and Famke Janssen (Jean Grey) previously teased their possible involvement with a future X-Men movie, while Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) recently expressed interest in reprising their roles in Days Of Future Past.

Andrew Dunbar Cast As "Firefly" In ARROW

A couple of weeks ago, it was rumored that the Batman villain Firefly/Garfield Lynns was set to appear in a future episode of The CW's Arrow, which was recently picked up by the network for a full season. Now, Entertainment Weekly confirm that the villain will make his debut on the show on its tenth episode, titled "Burned". The episode is scheduled to air in early 2013. Actor Andrew Dunbar (Tower Prep, Battlestar Galactica: Razor) will play Firefly. In the comics, Garfield Lynns becomes a villain after suffering severe burns as a firefighter. As with every character on Arrow, expect this take on Firefly to be more grounded/realistic than the comic book version. You can check out Arrow on The CW Wednesdays at 8 PM EST.

Stan Lee Confirms DOCTOR STRANGE Movie; Says BLACK PANTHER Is Being Developed

The interwebs have been a buzz for a long time about Marvel, and what their next movie projects will be. Doctor Strange and Black Panther have long been rumored to get film treatments from Marvel with Stan Lee even saying that he can't wait to see them. Now, in a recent interview Lee says that you can for sure expect to see Doctor Strange on the big screen and that Black Panther is currently being developed. "Oh they are all being made into movies! I can tell you there will definitely be a Dr. Strange movie! They are working on Antman, which requires really small cameras! Black Panther is being developed, one of my favorites…the Inhumans…All the hero’s will eventually be made into movies," Said Lee. Like stated above this is not the first time Lee has talked about Strange and Panther movies. Although, last time he did talk about the movies he only said they were being considered.

Lee also talked a little bit about his Executive Producing responsibilities, by saying he really doesn't do anything. "I have very little control. I don’t see the script, occasionally I will have lunch with the director or a star, like the guy making Antman,I don’t remember his name- I don’t remember names, or Robert Downey Jr., for Ironman and we talk about the characters," he explained. Lee also said that doing his cameos is really the only time he has something to do with the movies. Getting excited to go to the premieres and see the film it's self was also something he touched on.

According to IGN, yet another DC character will be making an appearance in CW's Arrow in the 11th episode of the show. This time it will be Ted Gaynor. A top officer in the United States Marine Corps and former member of the Blackhawk Squadron in the comics, apparently in the show he will be introduced as..

"Diggle’s commanding officer from his first tour in Afghanistan, who now works as a bodyguard for Blackhawk Squad Protection Group in Starling City. As a series of armored truck robberies strike the city, Gaynor proves to be a polarizing figure between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey)".


Browder will be best known to sci-fi fans for his roles in the likes of Farscape and Stargate SG-1, and he’s also guest starred on Chuck and Doctor Who.

FRINGE's Seth Gabel To Play "Vertigo" In ARROW

Not too long ago, we heard that a super villain based on DC Comics' Count Vertigo would be making an appearance on The CW's television series Arrow. This take on the DC villain will be very different from the comic book version; in fact, his name won't even be Vertigo. While being grounded into reality (similar to the other characters on the show) like Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, a deadly new drug called Vertigo "becomes all the rage" in Starling City in the character's first episode, which is scheduled to air in early 2013. Now, we know who's playing the villain. According to TV Line, Fringe actor Seth Gabel will be playing the "scary and nightmarish" antagonist, who is described by a source as "Oliver’s deadliest adversary to date." He previously worked with Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti on Dirty Sexy Money. You can check out Arrow on Wednesdays at 8 PM EST on The CW.

Thanks to Zap2It, we've learned that True Blood's Janina Gavankar has joined the cast of Arrow in a major recurring police officer role. Her character is named McKenna Hall and is described as "a vice cop with the Starling City Police Department. Tough, sexy, and considerably formidable, McKenna has a complicated history with Oliver."

THOR: THE DARK WORLD Stuntman Bobby Holland Hanton talks doubling for Chris Hemsworth

For Bobby Holland Hanton, jumping off a rooftop is all in a day's work.

A professional stuntman, Mr. Holland Hanton has leapt from roof to roof for actor Daniel Craig in QUANTUM OF SOLACE, jumped from buildings for Christian Bale in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and scaled castle walls for Jake Gyllenhaal in PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME.

Moviegoers may spot him driving a car in SKYFALL, the new James Bond movie, or executing a move for Chris Hemsworth in THOR: THE DARK WORLD, the THOR sequel now filming and set to be released next year.

"The level of stunts now in film and the level of action—they just keep raising the bar," he says. "It means I have to train harder."


The Workout
Eight to 12 weeks before shooting begins, Mr. Holland Hanton starts preparing for a role by testing stunts, understanding the fight-scene choreography and researching the physical condition of the star—and the physical condition the actor wants to be in for the film.

Weights enter the equation at the end of the day—after rehearsals or shooting—when Mr. Holland Hanton returns to the gym to focus on whatever muscle group needs to appear most prominent for that job. For THOR: THE DARK WORLD he is now stunting for Mr. Hemsworth, who is particularly muscular with big arms. "Chris is in the most incredible shape I've ever seen anyone," Mr. Holland Hanton says.

So, between sprints, he focuses on exercises like bicep curls and tricep pull downs.

 For a man who is himself in such extra-ordinary shape, to call Chris Hemsworth "in the most incredible shape I've ever seen" is high praise indeed. You can head over to the source to read about Bobby Holland Hanton's life story and his full workout and diet plan.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD releases worldwide on 8th November 2013.

Anthony Hopkins On Filming THOR: THE DARK WORLD

MTV News recently caught up with Academy Award-winning veteran actor Sir Anthony Hopkins to discuss his reprisal as the all-father Odin in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World. Commenting on co-stars of the Alan Taylor-directed flick that he's shared scenes with, check out what he says!


“I do my last shot Friday,” Anthony Hopkins said. “I had a great time working with Chris Hemsworth and Rene Russo. Chris is mostly who I'm working with; he's a wonderful actor, great new star, Natalie Portman [too]. I'm having a ball! It's great working with young people. I haven't been in the film that much, I've only done isolated scenes with Chris...Christopher Eccleston plays Malekith very good! We've had one encounter.” On Odin's golden eyepatch, Hopkins says, “I have to be careful where I step [on-set] because I lose all dimension. The movie sets can be dangerous.”

Chris Hemsworth Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD, ROBOPOCALYPSE And More





Speaking to MTV News, actor Chris Hemsworth discusses some of his upcoming projects. He offers an update on Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World, which will finish production in a few weeks, and how the relationships between Thor, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) have progressed. He also praises director Alan Taylor, who gives off a Game Of Thrones vibe in the highly anticipated sequel.

"We have six weeks to go to shoot. This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, "Oh, yeah, we're past the halfway mark!" which isn't a good idea, because you're not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through. But it's been great. The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There's a definite "Game of Thrones" vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor]."

"For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn't stop in and catch up with her in "Avengers." Thor might have some explaining to do in this one," says Hemsworth. "And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that's come from "Thor" to "Avengers" to now."

Additionally, Hemsworth confirms that he will star in Steven Spielberg's upcoming sci-fi film Robopocalypse, which begins production early next year. "No one does sci-fi better than him [Spielberg]. It was a no-brainer. And then I read the script and was even more excited if that's possible." He's also asked about the planned Snow White & The Huntsman follow-up. Yesterday, we heard that Kristen Stewart will return for a sequel, but director Rupert Sanders won't. Will Hemsworth return as well? "Honestly, I've heard the same things you've heard. I think if there's an appetite for the sequel, they'll get one going, but there's nothing official yet. I had a great time making the last one, so who knows?"

Finally, Hemsworth is asked if he would be interested in appearing in a Star Warsmovie, as Disney have announced plans to produce another trilogy (with Episode VII eying a 2015 release). Of course, Hemsworth would love to do something in the franchise. "Oh man, I love those films. That's the sort of bread and butter of my film experience as a kid. I would love to work on something like that. I also loved "Lord of the Rings." I would have loved to have done something in that world." For MTV's full chat with Hemsworth (in which he praises some of the films released this year, including The Dark Knight Rises), click the source link below.

Thor: The Dark World is set to hit theaters November 8th, 2013; Robopocalypse is slated for an April 25th, 2014 release. You can next see Chris Hemsworth in action in Red Dawn, which arrives tomorrow.

David Anders Joins The Cast Of ARROW As 'Cyrus Vanch'

Zap2it reveals that David Anders (Alias) is set to pay a visit to Starling City in episode 13 of Arrow as 'Cyrus Vanch'. According to the site, "Vanch is a ruthless career criminal who is released from prison after a long stint. Laurel is particularly invested in taking Vanch down. When she discovers that the police can't get him off the streets, she turns to the Arrow for help. Unfortunately, the cunning Vanch is one step ahead of them -- he's looking to take control of Starling City's criminal underworld, and in order to prove himself to the lowlifes, he's got a mind to eliminate the man criminals fear most." That's a pretty lengthy description, although it's worth noting that he ISN'T a character from the comic books. Apparently, Vanch will be one of Oliver's greatest threats yet.

But now the director has revealed that the story will indeed focus on past and future/young and old versions of our Mutant pals, and as well as confirming returning First Class cast members, officially welcomed Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier) and Ian McKellen (Magneto) to his DOFP cast..

Hugh Jackman In Talks For Another ‘Wolverine’ Outing In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Following yesterday's announcement that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are reprising their ‘Professor Charles Xavier’ & ‘Magneto’ roles respectively, it seems X-Men: Days of Future Past will see another actor's return from the original X-Men trilogy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hugh Jackman is in negotiations to reprise his ‘Wolverine’ role in the Bryan Singer-directed sequel.

This expected news comes only a week after Hugh Jackman officially wrapped production on the James Mangold-directed solo venture for the mutant, The Wolverine, which is due out in theaters July 26, 2013. Anyhow, Jackman joins Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng and Ian McKellen with Patrick Stewart. And with more cast additions to be announced, X-Men: Days of Future Past reportedly commences filming in Spring next year. And Bryan Singer directs the time travel adaptation into theaters on July, 18 2014. What do you think?

http://tvline.com/2012/11/27/shield-tv-show-casts-brett-dalton/

Relative newcomer Brett Dalton has joined the cast of Joss Whedon’s ABC pilot Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D., TVLine has learned exclusively.
The highly anticipated project is based on a peacekeeping group that appeared in various Marvel comics and in the summer blockbuster film The Avengers, which Whedon wrote and directed. The title’s acronym refers to a secret peacekeeping organization called Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.

Dalton, whose credits include guest stints on Army Wives and Blue Bloods as well as a supporting role in National Geographic Channel’s forthcoming telepic Killing Lincoln, will play Agent Grant, one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s highly-skilled rising stars. He’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills.

Dalton joins previously cast Ming-Na and Clark Gregg, the latter of whom will reprise his big-screen role of agent Phil Coulson.

Whedon, who is directing the pilot, co-wrote the script with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. If ABC orders the pilot to series, all three will serve as exec producers alongside Jeffrey Bell and Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.

Andrew Kreisberg Says He Starts Work On The BOOSTER GOLD TV Show Before Christmas

Ever since the show was announced some time ago, news on the new Booster Gold television show has been sparse at best. Last we heard was that Kreisberg was planning on handing in his script for the pilot, which will happen on Syfy, the month after San Diego Comic Con. While talking Arrow with IGN, Kriesberg revealed that he will start working on the show before Christmas. Take a look at what he had to say below.


"I got a little waylaid by Arrow. Booster Gold is going in the next couple weeks before Christmas. We'll see what happens from there. It's such a different project even though they're both DC Comics properties. Booster is much more candy and popcorn, being about time travel and changing the future and being a superhero who can fly. But they're both super-fun projects. As a lifelong DC Comics fan, I am beyond blessed to be working on these projects with all these amazing characters."


So, not much progress on the series, however, it is nice to know that it is still alive. No casting announcement have happened yet, but when Kreisberg talked about the pilot he wrote he said that we can expect to see a lot of the characters from the Booster Gold comics.

Ian McKellen On Returning As 'Magneto' In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would be reprising their roles as 'Charles Xavier' and 'Eric Lensherr' in X-Men: Days of Future Past. The Huffington Post caught up with McKellen recently and asked him for his thoughts on reprising the role he first took on in 2000's X-Men. "What a gas! I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing "Waiting for Godot" throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we've stayed in touch. We can't believe it [laughs]. I thought these were Fassbender and McAvoy's parts, but -- no, no -- we're back. We'll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do. But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan to be doing it -- with all the success he's had in the meantime -- it's wonderful. Wonderful." So, he's clearly enthusiastic about a return, but how does he feel about facing off against Michael Fassbender's take on the iconic villain in X-Men: First Class? "I thought he was exactly that: first class. Excellent... I thought he was better than me. But, we weren't quite playing the same character because he was so much younger than me."

Manu Bennett Cast As Deathstroke On ARROW

Bennet, mostly known for his role as Crixus from Starz's Spartacus has been cast as Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke on the CW's Arrow. Deathstroke was previously introduced in flashbacks and will again be seen in Episode 9 said Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg. So far, the masked villain has yet to remove his head-ware but that's all set to change now that Bennet's been awarded the role. It's thought that Slade Wilson, portrayed by Bennet, will return in the back half of Arrow's first season but in present day Starling City. You can expect Bennet to appear in multiple episodes.

Deathstroke was previously played by stuntman Jeffrey C. Robinson.

Details On CW's WONDER WOMAN Adaptation AMAZON

But keep in mind the show is still very early in the development stages and just about anything could change. It's worth noting here that Arrow had a lot of skeptics before the pilot aired and it's turned out to be a great series so far.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JakeLester/news/?a=70694

Late yesterday a report surfaced that showed The CW Networks was planning on moving forward with their proposed Wonder Woman Pilot tentatively titled, Amazon. The show is said to be focusing on Wonder Woman's days on Themyscira, before she becomes the great hero everyone loves. In the report casting directors are looking to cast the main character, which in most cases isn't a big deal. However, the report said the main characters name is Iris NOT Diana. Fans have immediately shown their dislike for the move, which prompted DC CCO to do a bit of damage control on Twitter.

@geoffjohns

If a WW show happens her name is of course DIANA. Codenames (like IRIS) are used in casting a lot to try and avoid speculation. #TV101 :)

So there you have it, no need to panic quite yet. Fans have still been in a little bit of an uproar, because they want DC to focus on a Wonder Woman movie, rather than a TV show. With DC looking to move towards a Justice League movie in 2015, it will be interesting to see exactly how they would handle a movie Wonder Woman and possibly a TV Wonder Woman.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/TheAlexLynch/news/?a=70720

Thanks to the ever reliable Craig Byrne over atWonderWomanTV, we have learned that the two scenes being used to screen test lead actors may involve Diana's love interest, Steve Trevor crashing on to Themyscira, who is then taken captive by Diana for interrogation. Not bad, right? The second scene being used has Diana and Steve possibly going on a date, most likely to test the chemistry between the two leads. Check out WWTV's descriptions below.


 Steve Trevor has landed, and his hands and feet are cuffed by a chair as Diana tries to figure out his intentions. She notices he has a weapon, and accuses him of being a terrorist, or even a diversion or harbinger of an invasion of men.

Diana and Steve are at a diner, we assume in Man’s World, and are a lot more friendly. There, Diana has her first taste of ice cream, in a very cute sequence.


Obviously it should go without saying that these scenes may end up never being filmed as The CW has yet to greenlight Amazon. The scenes may also not be selected from the pilot script, as well.

Jamie Foxx Explains Excitement For ‘Electro’ Role In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Sequel

In addition to today's earlier announcement that Chronicle actor Dane DeHaan officially signed on for the sequel's ‘Harry Osborn,’ director Marc Webb also announced that Academy Award-winning actor Jamie Foxx will definitely play ‘Electro,’ the super-villain of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And speaking with Entertainment Tonight just hours after Sony's press release, Foxx explained:

“Electro is a great character! I met with the director, Mark Webb, I met with Andrew Garfield, and we talked,” the Django Unchained actor continued. “I think Electro will be an exciting character to play because he's a … genius electrician-type person, and he gets the short end of the stick from the whole world, and the next thing you know he turns it on.”

The next installment of The Amazing Spider-Man stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Sally Field, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx and Shailene Woodley. The screenplay is by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner based on a previous draft by James Vanderbilt. The film will be directed by Marc Webb and produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. The untitled new film in the Spider-Man saga is set for release in 3D on May 2, 2014. Production will begin in early 2013 in New York.

The new Fantastic Four film will hit theaters on March, 6, 2015! In addition to the release date, Fox also announced that The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters will all be 3D releases. No surprise there. Anyhow, directed by Chronicle helmer Josh Trank, who officially signed on back in July, the reboot is being penned by Jeremy Slater, who promises a take on the superhero team that “fans deserve.”

IRON MAN 3: Wang Xuequi Offcially Cast As ‘Dr Wu’; Filming In Beijing Begins Monday

According to Deadline, after prepping the shoot for a week in Mainland China, Marvel will begin filming scenes for Iron Man 3 in Beijing on Monday, and veteran Chinese actor Wang Xuequi has officially been cast as Dr Wu - a slight variation on 'Chen Lu' who he was previously rumored to be playing. Apparently the character was originally going to be played by Andy Lau until he had to back out, and was thought to be an ally to Tony Stark. But when it leaked that the character's name was Chen Lu - who in the comics becomes Radioactive Man - it was assumed he must be a villain, and Deadline have also confirmed this, saying Xuequi will have a villainous role, but that it is "not a huge part". We don't know if Lu will actually transform into Radioactive man in the movie of course.

Xuequi - dubbed the "Chinese Sean Connery" - has had a career spanning 25 years, appearing in the likes of Yellow Earth (1984) and The Big Parade (1986), Huang Jianxin’s Samsara, and Zhang Yimou’s Codename Cougar (1989), and more recently the award-winning Forever Enthralled (2008) and Bodyguards and Assassins (2009).

SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL Viral Marketing Begins With Alien Transmissions


Viral marketing for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, has kicked off with a website claiming that it has received alien messages from deep space and would like help decoding them. Update! It appears as though a Kryptonian countdown has begun.
nailbiter111 - 12/10/2012

A new website, the "Deep Space Radio Wave Project" (DSRW), has just surfaced online, and it is most likely a viral website for the new Superman film, Man of Steel. You can see on the bottom of the webpage that it is copyrighted by Warner Bros., the studio producing the film.

http://dsrwproject.com/index.php?ulang=en_US

Mission Statement
Welcome to the home of the DSRW Project, a private non-profit research organization with a network of world-wide interstellar communication facilities that support the exploration of our solar system and the universe. We believe our research is essential to understanding the origin of life.

Our mission is to capture deep space radio waves and analyze them for patterns and messages. We share our findings with the public and work together to answer the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” Through collaboration, we will separate real communication from galactic white noise.

The goal is to recognize a pattern of sounds and mark them off in the corresponding boxes provided to unlock each interstellar signal. So far fans have very quickly decoded all ten messages that were provided, but check back often for more.

Update! Thanks to TheManOfSteel1013 we can now see what appears to be a countdown with Kryptonian symbols. What is coming? Perhaps the new Man of Steel trailer?

WONDER WOMAN EXCLUSIVE: An Interview with Cathy Lee Crosby

By 1974, Cathy Lee Crosby had decided she needed a change from her career as a professional tennis player, and looked towards acting. She had scored a role in the Walter Matthau feature film The Laughing Policeman, but then got what she thought was a dream role: that of Wonder Woman in a TV movie/backdoor pilot of the same name released on DVD December 11th.

Says Wikipedia of that film, "The first serious attempt at adapting Wonder Woman to live-action TV starred Cathy Lee Crosby as a blonde Amazon with superhuman agility (à la Captain America) and gadgets, similar to those used by movie super-spy James Bond and secret agent Emma Peel of TV's The Avengers, both of which were still somewhat popular at that time, when the script of this pilot movie was in its early stages of development. Though this version owed much to a brief period in the Wonder Woman comic book, in which the Amazon heroine had lost her powers, it did not stray completely from its comic inspiration. This Princess Diana could communicate with animals; run, leap, and swim faster than normal humans; and was agile enough to deflect bullets from her Amazon bracelets, which, by some unrevealed means, she could trigger to explode. In lieu of the magical, golden lasso in the comics, she kept a golden cable concealed in her belt, which was used as a grappling rope and to ensnare fleeing enemies. While the Wonder Woman comic being published at the time of the pilot's screening featured the heroine with her traditional powers intact, no explanation for the differences between the film and the comic were ever given."

"It was my first real job," reflects Crosby, "so the significance of the project was that I was acting, but then, to have the opportunity to play a character that you grew up with as a little kid was so meaningful to me. At the time I was a professional tennis player and a lot of that, but as a little girl - actually a girl of any age - you couldn't help but love a woman who looks great, who has an invisible plane and some amazing bracelets. What a great fantasy."

She admits that she was a little surprised that she was cast in the role. "I would have thought they would have gone with a brunette," says the blonde Crosby, "but then I realized that the original movie was actually jointly owned by Warner Bros. and ABC. From what I understand, Warner Bros. wanted to do it more James Bond and ABC wanted to do it more comic book. So I guess it went halfway down the middle, because in a lot of ways this Wonder Woman was more like a female James Bond.

"For me," she continues, "it was an interesting opportunity and an amazing character. I think she was capable and she had all of these great tools. she kind of had fun with the whole thing; she could do whatever she needed to do and was completely what you would think of as a superhero. She tried to right wrongs, and who wouldn't love to be able to do that? And then when you're in trouble, you call upon your bracelets or your lasso to pull you through. I loved that concept, and the fact that her enemies would try to stop her in every way that she could and he was able to meet the challenge. I think that's a great image to represent."

Today, Crosby is at work on a number of projects, including the pilot for a reality show from the producers of Extreme Makeover titled Oh Yes You Can; and a feature film she's cowritten and will star in called Kiss of the Butterfly. "It's about a selective mute woman and it's a true story," she explains. "It's extraordinary how she comes to talk again and it's a beautiful story."

For the moment, though, it's the return of her Wonder Woman (released through the Warner Archive Collection) that is the matter at hand, for which she admits to feeling a bit of pride due to the fact that she has become part of the character's legacy. "The more than I have worked on other jobs, other films or whatever it may be," she closes, "the more you begin to see these fans come out of nowhere and they feel that you are a part of this history. It's a wonderful feeling, and not something I expected."

ARROW Casts Former TEEN WOLF Star To Portray 'Roy Harper'

According to TVGuide, The CW has signed former Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes to portray Roy Harper, who DC Comics fans know as 'Red Arrow', 'Speedy' or even 'Arsenal'. However, it's quite obvious we won't see him shooting arrows just yet.

Executive Producer Greg Berlanti said that "We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf and we are thrilled he's joining Arrow." The CW has described the character as "a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,' the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City.". Harper will be introduced as a love interest to Thea Queen, who is "destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow."

The character is expected to show up in Early 2013 after the mid-season finale, and will be introduced to Oliver in "an unexpected way". Haynes joins Seth Gabel (Vertigo), John Barrowman, Katie Cassidy, Stephen Amell and Colin Donnell in the cast of Arrow.

Terence Stamp On Playing General Zod; Gives His Thoughts On Michael Shannon & MAN OF STEEL

Terence Stamp is something of a Brit icon, having appeared in the likes of Young Guns, Far from the Madding Crowd, Priscilla Queen Of The Desert and of course, Superman 2 as the villainous General Zod. He is also very spiritual, funny, forthcoming, and, what you might call, eccentric! The Playlist conducted a lengthy interview with the actor at the Marrakech International Film Festival, and asked him about Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, and if he was curious about how another actor would interpret Zod.






"Not really. I mean, I will see it... But for me, it was my comeback movie. I’d been out of work for eight years and living in India. I was a swami in an ashram, with long hair and a beard, and I was in orange. When the work had stopped I kept thinking next week will be a job, next month will be a job. And then I was travelling and learning all these metaphysical techniques and breathing and tantra and finally I got to an ashram in Pune and it seemed like the most beautiful women from every country in the world were there, and they were all totally empowered [twinkle which allows us to know precisely what he means by “empowered”]. So then I let go, I thought no, I won’t go back to showbiz, this is my life now."


Well, who could blame him for being hesitant to return. The site also relayed to Stamp that Michael Shgannon had said his turn as Zod would be a tough act to follow, and that he "nailed" the role. "Oh wow. Well, I’m sure he’s going to be fantastic because it’s a fantastic role," he responded. "All I can say is he needs to be very present. When I walked onto that set I’d been an ashram for a year, learning to separate orgasm from ejaculation. I was rechannelling the lifeforce and I hadn’t been working, and when I walked on the set, it seemed like everyone was asleep, but I was so, so ready. The only guy who was really up for it was Brando -- he totally understood where I was coming from." Hear that Shannon? I hope you cleaned the pipes before arriving on set.

IRON MAN 3 Is A “Dark Comedy” Says James Badge Dale

Making the cover of this month's Glow Magazine issue, James Badge Dale discussed the number of big movies he has forthcoming, from The Lone Ranger to Iron Man 3. And when asked about playing one of the villains in the latter 2013 Marvel sequel, via Just Jared, the actor explained:

“I had a great time. I went from riding a horse in the desert for The Lone Ranger, tossed my dogs in a car and went to Iron Man 3 with guys in robot suits. IM3 is really a dark comedy with a little bit of farce. The trick is to be able to have the audience relate to you. Director Shane Black gave me a long leash. We had a great time. Robert Downey Jr. loves the process of acting and loves to be creative with a director and his fellow actors.” About his other future projects, “I’m close to a deal with a film in Austin, Texas. If it works out I’ll throw the dogs in the car and head down. Just hope there are no horses involved. I still have horse smell in my jeans from The Lone Ranger. I’m a city boy with a metro card. I prefer the subway.”

Robert Downey Jr. Talks IRON MAN 3; Praises Shane Black, Jon Favreau And Sir Ben Kingsley

Just hours ago, Robert Downey Jr. attended a sit-down chat at the 24 hour Cinefamily Telethon, which was streamed live. And while “opening a time capsule left for him at the theatre many years ago,” the two-time Oscar-nominated actor discussed his next outing as billionaire Tony Stark/ Marvel’s Armored Avenger in Iron Man 3. When asked about director Shane Black, Downey began:

“I adore him. I’ve been a fan of Shane Black since I saw Lethal Weapon. When we were doing the first Iron Man, Jon Favreau and I used to call up Shane Black. We had two lifeline calls; one was to [Star Trek Into Darkness director] J.J. Abrams, which was about the third act [of Iron Man]. And for the other call, we went to Shane’s house. We couldn’t afford him, so in exchange for helping us with a few key scenes, he asked for a piece of Salmon and fresh blueberries.”

Recalling Shane's contribution, the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang actor continued, “For instance, in the Iron Man scene where Tony Stark comes back from captivity and calls a press conference, and then asked everybody to sit down, the speech Stark gives all came from Shane Black. So to get him to do Iron Man 3, it has just been this awesome experience and one of my favorite working experiences. Iron Man 3 is going to be a very, very bold genre film, from the storytelling.”

“Jon Favreau reprises his role as Happy Hogun,” said Downey, after acknowledging that Favreau’s no longer in the director’s chair. “Happy has an amazing arc in this movie. In fact, probably the best two bits of acting in the movie, so far from what I can tell...which sucks because I’m in every frame, are Favreau as Happy Hogun...I can’t give away much, but it’s ridiculous. And also Sir Ben Kingsley [as the Mandarin]. Kingsley is amazing. And a lot of that had to do with the way that Shane crafted the role for Sir Ben. I think that people are gonna be not [totally] surprised, but they’re gonna be just reinvested in what a brilliant actor Kinglsey is.”

Back on the subject of Iron Man 3’s co-writer and helmer, Robert Downey Jr. concluded, “Shane Black really knows the superhero genre, but I think the main thing [that’s great about him] is that he’s always looking at complexities within complexities [and so on]. And he always likes it when a film kinda stops for a reason you can’t understand and then kinda picks up and goes in a direction you’ve never imagined. Usually when you have a straight-forward narrative, if at act 1, 2 or 3, ‘There’s Tony, Tony’s in trouble, where’s Pepper, Tony wins,’” Downey laughed. “By the time we were doing the 2nd one, I was like ‘where’s Pepper.’ Shane is just a genius!”

Samuel L. Jackson Speaks On A NICK FURY Movie; Confirms Bigger Role In CAPTAIN AMERICA 2

During the press junket for Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, CS.net/SHH sat down with actor Samuel L. Jackson to discuss his role in the upcoming spaghetti western. And ultimately, Jackson wound up talking about his Nick Fury role from The Avengers, among other Marvel films, and whether a solo movie for the S.H.I.E.L.D. Director would be necessary. The veteran actor offered:

“Everybody likes a franchise character. Bruce (Willis) had his and Sylvester Stallone had Rocky, so I like coming back to Nick Fury. Nick Fury's a great guy. I think a lot of people know that. I know him as something else because I've been alive longer than most of the fans that watch the movies so I know Nick Fury as the World War II veteran and all that stuff. It might be interesting to do one day but we find out little bits and pieces about Nick and we're going into 'Captain America 2' in late March.”

Near the end of Samuel L. Jackson's interview with CS.net/SHH, the Academy Award-nominated actor apparently confirmed that Nick Fury “does indeed have a bigger role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” rather than a cameo, similar to Iron Man 2.

Jack Huston Confirms Auditioning For ‘Star-Lord’ Role In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

While a few actors who made Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy‘Star-Lard’ shortlist are committing to other big projects, seemingly slimming their chances to none, contender and Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston recently told MTV News that he's more than capable; even after sustaining a broken rib while filming Not Fade Away. Check out exactly what he said in the video! 

“There was a screen test. Like I said, brittle bones. Maybe they'll call me Glass Man. 'Here he comes. Oh, he fell over,'” Jack Huston joked. But jokes aside, he said, “I would love to do it. I tell you, these bones are strong. If you need a guardian to look after this galaxy, look no further.”

About Jack Huston's fellow ‘Peter Quill’ contenders, Garrett Hundley recently announced his commitment to Tron 3, while Joel Edgerton is filming Felony and just signed on for Jane Got a Gun. And as reported earlier today, Eddie Redmayne has just joined Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending. Of course, these other obligations wouldn't exactly rule them out of winning the role. Anyhow, the list also includes Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace, James Marsden and Sullivan Stapleton.

BSG Actor James Callis Lands Guest-Starring Role In ARROW

Having recently aired its midseason finale, The CW's Arrow will return on January 16th at 8 PM EST. In the meantime, we have another bit of casting news for the DC Comics series. According to TV Guide, Battlestar Galactica actor James Callis has been cast in a guest-starring role on an upcoming episode. He will play "The Dodger", who is described as "an elusive international jewel thief who imposes his plans on the innocent, forcing them to carry out his crimes under duress. When the Sherwood Ruby goes missing in Starling City, the ensuing investigation leads Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) straight to The Dodger, but apprehending him won't be as easy as they may have thought." No word on whether or not this is supposed to be the same Dodger as the one in the comics; that character was a villain-turned-ally of Green Arrow. The Arrow episode featuring Dodger is slated to air sometime in 2013.

Ian McKellen Speculates That X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Will Be Shot In 3D And 48FPS

Talking to Movies Are My Jam while promoting the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Sir Ian McKellen has revealed that Bryan Singer was such a fan of what Peter Jackson has done in regards to 3D and the 48 Frames Per Second format, that he wouldn't be at all surprised to see the highly anticipated sequel to Matthew Vaughn's 2011 movie also shot in that way. Purely speculation at this point, but an exciting thought nonetheless. He also talks a little about Twitter (you can find him at @IanMcKellen) and his enthusiasm to return to the world of the X-Men. Check out the video.

Joss Whedon Discusses The Return Of Agent Coulson In MARVEL'S S.H.I.E.L.D

It's fair to say that Joss Whedon has something of a reputation for killing off beloved characters. It was inevitable then that SOMEONE would have to meet their maker in The Avengers, and it ended up being fan favourite, 'Agent Coulson' (played by Clark Gregg). However, it may comes as something of a surprise to you then that it was in fact not Whedon's decision to end his life in the superhero ensemble. "Coulson’s death was mandated in the first meeting by Kevin Feige. I can’t say that enough times. Apparently I have some kind of reputation that we won’t discuss right now, but I do love to kill people." So, if Marvel Studios want him dead, why bring him back in the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series? Well, the writer and director of that pilot was coy with his answer when asked at a recent Q&A event. "Clark himself said when we were shooting that it was obvious that it had to happen, otherwise all of this becomes irresponsible. There’s no toll or actual downside to this very bad idea of bringing all of these people together. As a film it’s just irresponsible. That’s why we’re bringing him back for a S.H.I.E.L.D. series." It's a little difficult to understand what he means from that last sentence (it could be down to the transcription as it may have been taken out of context), but Whedon clearly has bigger plans for the character and doesn't have an issue with bringing him back, regardless of whether it contradicts the significance of his death in the movie.

Seth Gabel Discusses Playing 'The Count' In ARROW

Speaking with Collider while promoting his new movie Allegiance, Seth Gabel (Fringe) discusses his role as the villain 'The Count' in an early 2013 episode of The CW's Arrow. Based on the character Count Vertigo, this incarnation of the DC Comics character is very different from the comic version. "I play The Count, who’s based on Count Vertigo of the comic book series. Instead of having superpowers, the powers are manifested in a drug called Vertigo, that I sell on the street. I’m essentially this street thug/drug kingpin, taking over the streets of Starling City. The way I justified being a super-villain, if you will, is that the character cares so much about money and power that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to acquire those things. In being totally consumed by money and power, I can completely ignore any questionable ethics, along that process, and just completely throw myself into doing whatever acts will achieve the acquisition of those things, whether it’s evil, wrong or whatever."

Gabel also had this to say when asked if his experience on Fringe helped him prepare for Arrow. "Yeah. The interest in the Arrow guest spot has been really surprising and incredible. I suppose it is from having such a wonderful audience from Fringe, and I’m so appreciative of that. The fans of Fringe are so loyal and incredible and powerful. They single-handedly kept that show on the air when the numbers showed that it should have canceled. To see the power that an audience like that has is really inspiring to me. I’m so glad that that audience has found Arrow. I was so excited to be a part of it because I’m a fan of the show and a fan of the genre, as well as the sci-fi genre. I love anything that has a big metaphor. It was a really exciting thing to be a part of, and I had so much fun doing it." The actor is also interested in reprising the role of The Count for future appearances after his guest spot. "It’s very possible that I’ll make future appearances, and it’s something that I would absolutely love doing."

"I’m on a diet now and I’m working out more," says Gabel concerning his physical preparation for the role. "People are like, “What prompted this in you?,” and I’m like, “Working with Stephen Amell!” You see the stuff that he’s capable of doing and the discipline that he has on set. Normally, when you see someone that looks like Stephen, you assume, “Okay, that’s their genetics. He’s a lucky bastard. I’ll never be like that.” But then, I got to talk to him and I was like, “What do you eat for lunch?,” and he said, “I just eat chicken and kale, every day.” I was like, “This guy is the real deal! He’s working hard to look like this and to be as physically capable as he is. This isn’t just someone who’s lucky.” It made me realize that you need to work for it. You can’t do these incredible things, unless you work for it. So, I’m taking that attitude into this holiday season and I’ve had the power to say not to about one-third of the cookies that have been thrown at me, which is a good step forward."

James McAvoy Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

 As Patrick Stewart is “greatly looking forward” to reprising his respective role as the modern-day Professor Charles Xavier, Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past will overtly also see the First Class period iteration of the character, played by James McAvoy. The Scottish actor recently spoke with Total Film in their latest mag’ issue, where he modestly discussed the 2014 sequel.

“I thought the biggest thing that X-Men: First Class gave the franchise was a real palpable sense of humor that wasn’t just for a couple of moments,” McAvoy admits. “It was running through the thing. And I hope that continues. I don’t know how easy it will be for me to be a part of that as my character’s going to be in a pretty [frick]ed up place. It’s a shame because I like the fact that Charles Xavier was witty and funny and a bit of a lecherous old guy trapped in a 30-year-old’s body.”

Although he played coy about Days of Future Past story details, James McAvoy did confirm that there will be an explanation as to why and how Prof. X will go bald, which the casting of Stewart, alone, affirms will occur. “[screenwriter] Simon Kinberg and I had a chat about it and we came up with a whole bunch of idea about how, why and where he might go bald. It’s got to be linked to the plot though. In the comics, he lost his hair as soon as his powers awakened, and we clearly didn’t follow the source material. It can’t just be that he looks in the mirror at the end of the film and goes ‘Oh [frick], I’m losing my hair’. Although that could be quite funny with all this shit going on... he goes ‘Arge, I’m really stressed...’”

While Fox’s Marvel Property Creative Consultant, Mark Millar, has alluded to X-Men: Days of Future Past finally featuring the giant robotic Sentinels, we’ve yet to receive confirmation; even after Total Film asked James McAvoy. The Wanted actor laughed before saying, “As a fan of the X-Men world and lexicon, I share lots of other fans’ hopes and dreams and I’d like to see Sentinels...”

In addition, Total Film also questioned two of James McAvoy’s X-Men: First Class co-stars, actress Rose Byrne and Banshee actor Caleb Landry Jones, about whether they’ll be reprising their roles in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Both thespians said they have yet to be contacted, but would “absolutely love” to return and show more of who their characters are, if asked. Anyhow, X-Men: Days of Future Past stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. And reportedly scheduled to commence principal photography in Spring next year, Bryan Singer directs the anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past time travel adaptation into theaters on July, 18 2014 in 2D and 3D!

Tom Hiddleston Teases Alan Taylor's “Amazing” New Direction For THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Now that we’re finally in the year of the Marvel sequel's Fall release date, the first visuals from Thor: The Dark World are sure to come sooner than later. However, without specified dates of a marketing push, we at least have more teasing from ‘Loki’ actor Tom Hiddleston. The English star recently chatted about The Dark World's “amazing,” never-before-seen direction.

“It's fantastic, truly. We are making an amazing film, and we're having a wonderful time. It's so exciting to have established characters and an established setting in the world, and we are working so hard to cook up something new. That is what is exciting to me - taking what we know, taking what we love and deepening it and giving it an extra dimension. I think director Alan Taylor is really shaping up the world of Asgard and the world of these characters”

Frank Grillo tweets his Workouts to prepare for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Grillo follows in the footsteps of Jeff Bridges, Mickey Rourke, Ben Kingsley, Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Tim Roth and Hugo Weaving to play the bad guy in a Marvel Film. Its a great group of actors to join and this role is Grillo's highest profile role to date.

Grillo is understandably stepping up to the plate for a role that is likely to make him a star. To portray Crossbones, the actor has been training rigorously for the past two months, since his casting was confirmed. Grillo is 47 years old and a father of two but has kept in great shape over the years. He will be putting on 20 pounds of muscle for the role and gives a taste of some of the workouts he is doing through his twitter feed. Check them out below.

Above is a picture of Grillo showing his progress.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is scheduled to release on 4th April 2014.

Nicholas Hoult Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Amid the press junket for his romantic zombie comedy Warm Bodies, Nicholas Hoult was queried about returning as Hank McCoy/Beast from X-Men: First Class in the Days of Future Past sequel. Refraining from divulging story details, via ScreenCrave, the English actor says he is anticipating being reunited with his Jack the Giant Slayer director, Bryan Singer, for the Marvel adaptation.

“We’ve gotten along really well,” Hoult said of director Bryan Singer, who served as a producer on First Class. “He’s fantastic on the X-Men films. He really knows what’s going on. And from what I’ve heard about the script, I think it’s going to be a really cool film. I’m looking forward to it. I like that character as well. I don’t think we start for another few months.”

Given that some actors from the X-Men trilogy are returning, it's worth noting that Kelsey Grammer portrayed the big blue furball in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). However, there's no word on whether the modern-day iteration of Hank McCoy will take part in Days of Future Past, or if Grammer will return as well.

X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. And as aforementioned, more actors from the X-Men trilogy are expected to make an appearance in the upcoming mutant ensemble sequel. Reportedly starting principal photography in Spring, Bryan Singer directs Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past time travel adaptation into theaters on July, 18 2014 in 2D/3D!

MTV recently caught up with Jaimie Alexander while she was doing press rounds for The Last Stand. During the interview she talked about, for the first time, her horrific injury she sustained on the set of Thor: The Dark World, revealing that she is just now getting back close to normal. You can check out the chat in the video below where she also talks, again, about the darker tone that Alan Taylor is setting for Thor's second solo outing.

http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JakeLester/news/?a=72363

Jaimie Alexander Talks In Detail About Her Injury On The Set Of THOR: THE DARK WORLD

On Her Injury:


"I injured my self pretty bad. I actually haven't talked about this on camera yet. I herniated a disk in my Thoracic spine, dislocated my left shoulder, tore my right Rhomboid, and chipped eleven vertebra. I slipped and fell down something very high, I hurt my self pretty badly and it scared me. I knew when I couldn't get off the ground I was in big trouble. Then, I was okay, but in a lot of pain. The next morning I got in a car to go to the hospital, and I sat in the car and compressed my spine a little bit, and went paralyzed in my right leg and my right hand. So I was in the hospital for a week. But, it was a thing where it was just a swelling thing. Once the swelling went down I was good to go. I did physical rehab for a month, then went back and did some more fight sequences."


On The Movie:


It's a different vibe and a different tone. I think it's a bit darker. We explore more of the viking aspect of things. We explore a few different realms. You learn more about what life is like in Asgard. People just looking awesome, tall, kicking butt, stabbing a few people."


We all knew she had taken a pretty nasty spill, but I don't think that anyone knew exactly how bad it was until she talked about it. However, it is good to know that she is doing better. You can see Alexander kicking butt as Sif when Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th.

Sebastian Stan & Scarlett Johansson Amped For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Beyond having roles in Marvel's cinematic universe, Sebastian Stan and Scarlett Johansson have something else in common: they're both currently performing in classic Broadway shows and are excited to return to film, reprising their Bucky Barnes and Black Widow roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While Stan was promoting the play Picnic, he commented on his expanded role in the Marvel sequel, via Broadway.com. And Johansson was under promotional duties for the play Cat On a Hot Tin Roof when she did the same with CBS Sunday Morning yesterday; vid' below.

“I’m completely excited to venture down that path. This is why January 1, 2013, was a glorious day to wake up to [laughs]. I’m very grateful and very lucky for what’s going on right now. I think you have to allow yourself to be excited about the magnitude of something like [Cap 2].”

UPDATE: ARROW Showrunners On The Show's Future, Deadshot And China White Team-Up Confirmed

Warning: The article over at Huffington Post covers a lot of ground and has a lot of spoilers so if you don't care to know a thing about the second half of Arrow, click away now!

"We were able to go through the hell of the first seven or eight [episodes] that I think you have to go to, to sort of calibrate how to make a good episode and how to make it on time and on budget and all that stuff, and [we started] to get real, true audience feedback about what people are enjoying most," Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti shared. "So this next run of episodes is the byproduct of a conversation we've had with the audience and then also our own learning curve in terms of how to make better episodes." Interesting! I know for a fact that the show's producers visit CBM so it's possible our weekly poll and discussion series has played a part in the evolution of the show.

Berlanti and fellow producer, Marc Guggenheim go to to share that the show is really about the evolution of Oliver Queen from vigilante to hero, stress the dup. But he's also evolving physically as well. "It's a silly thing to note," but the show's star, who got quite a bit of notice for his killer abs, has "bulked up" his chest and upper body in the past few months. "He was an impressive physical specimen before, but he has found a new gear," Guggenheim added. The discussion also touched on the fact that a lot of the characters that show up in the first season are indeed DC Comics heroes and villains but many are not at the stage in their life where they're ready to don a cape or tights. In many ways, that sentiment hold true for Oliver as well, right now he's a vigilante and what we're seeing is his journey towards becoming a hero.

Below, are some highlights from a podcast discussion with the producers that contain SPOILERS.

-Before the season's end, one other person besides Diggle and Huntress will learn Oliver's secret identity.

-Episode 11 features Ben Browder as Ted Gaynor, a name comic book fans will recognize from the roster of the Blackhawks Squadron (incorrectly stated as episode 12 over at HuffPo).

-Seth Gabl's Count Vertigo arrives in Episode 12. The producers confirm that he will definitely be back in later eps.
-Manu Bennett arrives in Episode 13 as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. However, producers caution not to assume that info on Bennett's character is 100% correct. Based on that tease, methinks there's someone else underneath Deathstroke's costume?

-David Anders arrives in Episode 14 as Vanch, a brand new villain and original creation of the show.

-James Callis appears as Dodger in Episode 15. The producers are still undecided about whether he'll be a recurring character.

-It was rumored that Colton Haynes would be debuting in Episode 12 along with Count Vertigo but apparently Roy Harper debuts in Episode 15 as well. For a look at set photos featuring Haynes CLICK HERE.

-Deadshot and China White team-up in Episode 16 of Arrow.

-Oliver will begin to uncover the secrets of his mother between episodes 12 and 14.

-The second half of the season closely examines the relationship between Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell) and his father (John Barrowman) the Dark Archer.

- After episode 16 which airs February 27th, the show goes on a mini-hiatus before closing out the first season with 2 episodes on March 20th and March 27th respectively.


Update: First look at Seth Gabel as Vertigo, courtesy of TV Guide.

Shawn Ashmore On X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST & Working With Kevin Bacon On FIRST CLASS





Speaking with Huffington Post at the premiere of FOX's The Following, actor Shawn Ashmore discusses his interest in returning as Bobby Drake/Iceman in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days Of Future Past after playing the character in the first three films. We previously heard him say that he hasn't heard anything from Singer or the studio about potentially reprising the role, and it's still the case here. "Honestly, at this point I have no idea. What's exciting is Bryan Singer's back, which is amazing. He was amazing to work with. I would love to come back and play Bobby again. I played the part three times, I got to grow up playing that part, which is incredible. It's so rare. If it happens, i would love to play that part. The moving is happening, so I have to wait and see how it all comes together." With many actors from the original trilogy expected to reprise their roles (Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan are set to return as Wolverine, Professor X and Magneto, respectively), it wouldn't be surprising to see Ashmore's Iceman return.

The actor also shares his thoughts on X-Men: First Class, which features his The Following co-star Kevin Bacon as the villainous Sebastian Shaw. He also looks back on comparing notes when they were working on The Following. "I loved 'First Class.' I thought Matthew Vaughn did a great job. I thought Kevin Bacon did a great job. We've had some 'X-Men' conversations. They shot some of 'First Class' down in Atlanta, which is where we shot the pilot, so we just kind of talked about that and the experience of making it," Ashmore said. "They're huge films. It's such an undertaking, so it's amazing to get stories from the movies you're not on. It's all very similar: the scheduling and the craziness and the special effects and 'Oh my god, that scene, it's 10 seconds in the movie, but it took five weeks to shoot.' Stuff like that."

Would you like to see Shawn Ashmore reprise his role as Iceman for a fourth time? Who else would you like to see from the original X-Men trilogy to appear in Days Of Future Past?

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman and Nicholas Hoult. The film is set to hit theaters July 18th, 2014. Additionally, The Wolverine is scheduled for a July 26th release, while Fantastic Four will arrive March 5th, 2015.

ARROW Enlists DOCTOR WHO Actress To Portray Dinah Lance

According to Entertainment Weekly, The CW's breakout crime drama, Arrow, has cast Doctor Who and ER actress Alex Kingston to portray "Dinah Lance" on the show.

Kingston will portray Laurel Lance's (Katie Cassidy) mother, who they note "will return to Starling City to make amends with her family that she abandoned years earlier following the tragic death of her daughter." Fans of the show know that Sara Lance was aboard Oliver's yacht, in which she died in a terribly tragic drowning.

In the original DC comics, Kingston's character was the original Black Canary. It's also interesting to note that Kingston will be the second actor from Doctor Who joining the show, as John Barrowman was previously cast as Malcom Merlyn (A.K.A The Dark Archer).

Manu Bennett Talks Playing Deathstroke On The CW's ARROW

Access Hollywood caught up with New Zealand actor at the premiere for Spartacus: War of the Damned and asked him if they should call him Slade Wilson, as he's just signed on for a guest spot on the CW's Arrow. "You can call me Azog from The Hobbit, there's a few names I'm going by these days, I'm going from one thing to another," said Bennett.

Continuing on with a comparison between Spartacus and Arrow, Bennett stated, "There's a very different style to Arrow than what there was to Spartacus. I had a discussion with the writer, Andrew Kreisberg about what they wanted and they didn't want Crixus, that's for sure. They wanted something original for the show and Arrow is reality-based, it's here in the now. It's very fast moving action, it's a whole new [fighting] technique that I'm learning with them. There's some similarities [between Crixus and Wilson] in that I come onto the show against another strong character."

ANT-MAN And DOCTOR STRANGE To Spearhead Phase 3 For Marvel

Ant-Man and Doctor Stange have been two projects for Marvel, that have longed been rumored, but never confirmed. That all changed for Ant-Man this past July at Comic-Con when Marvel announced the film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige talked about how he will be a major part of Phase 3."'Ant-Man' is definitely part of Phase Three. Like 'Iron Man 3,' it's certainly set in the Marvel Universe," he explained to MTV. He also went on to say that director Edgar Wright is the only reason the film is happening. "I've known Edgar since our first lunch together at Comic-Con in 2004. He asked me what Marvel was doing with 'Ant-Man' we weren't even a studio then; what a difference eight years makes," he laughed. While it's not a surprise, the Ant-Man movie will be an origin film, which Feige said is very much from the perspective of both wright and co-writer Joe Cornish. It will be apart of the MCU, but a different corner than we've seen before."

Feige went on to say that Phase three will be completely different from the stories they are telling now. Saying, "So much of what we're telling right now is about the core 'Avengers' characters we've now met, and they'll be evolving in big, surprising ways, in Cap's next movie and Thor's next movie and of course in 'Iron Man 3,' as we get them all into the next 'Avengers' film. Beyond that 'Ant-Man' is the only one officially announced." He continued by saying you wont have to look too far as to where they might go as far as other characters they are planning on bringing to the big screen.

With all that in mind, it brings us back to Doctor Strange. Who, acorrding to Feige, WILL be a part of Phase 3. "'Doctor Strange,' which I've been talking about for years, is definitely one of them," he confirmed. "He's a great, original character, and he checks the box off this criteria that I have: he's totally different from anything else we have, just like 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' He's totally different from anything we've done before, as is 'Ant-Man,' which keeps us excited." No word yet still on the rumored Black Panther project, but it is exciting to see one of the long rumored films confirmed.

The CW Pushes The AMAZON Pilot Back Until Next Season

A couple weeks back we got some news that Amy Manson was the front runner to land the roll of Diana Prince, AKA Wonder Woman, in the upcoming CW pilot titled Amazon. All indications seem to show that the show was moving full steam a head. Now, according to Deadline, the show is at a stand still. Instead of moving forward with the project for this seasons pilot orders the network has made the choice to wait until next season to shoot the pilot.

Amazon was the first pilot that The CW started working on for this season, even starting the casting process back in November. That was before the script was even ready. It just appears that the show was no where near ready to shoot. Given the success of the television show Arrow, which is based on DC's Green Arrow, the network is wanting to make sure they go about handling Amazon just right. As of right now the show is still very high on the priority list for The CW.

The Fate Of The DC Cinematic Universe Hinges On The Success Of MAN OF STEEL

Green Lantern was a flop. With a budget of over $200 million, the fact that it grossed less than $220 million worldwide was not a good result for Warner Bros. While success was pretty much guaranteed for them with Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise, Green Lantern was the first real risk that the studio took when it comes to their superhero properties. For that reason, it should perhaps comes as no surprise that they are now extremely wary moving forward. While Marvel's The Avengers may have been a $1.5 billion success, they still aren't sure about whether or not they should move ahead with Justice League. Instead, it will be down to how well Man of Steel performs before they make a final decision on the fate of the superhero ensemble.

GAME OF THRONES' Peter Dinklage Joins X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

The cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past is big as it is, because we will see a lot of actors from the original trilogy in this one, as well as some of the cast from First Class. But, since there are other roles to be filled, you can add one more name to the list -- Peter Dinklage, from the great HBO series Game of Thrones. Director Bryan Singer posted this on his official Twitter account:


X-Men: Days of Future Past is based on a classic comic book storyline, which deals "with a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps." The arc also features the Sentinels, who rule the United States. Bryan Singer is directing the film, with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, Ellen Page and Peter Dinklage starring in the upcoming sequel.

More From Bryan Singer On X-MEN: DOFP; Reveals Richard Nixon Will Be A Character

We've already heard quite a bit from Bryan Singer regarding X-Men: Days Of Future Past, though the director is always careful enough not to spill TOO many details. Such is the case with his latest interview with Collider, but he does drop one or two new tidbits. About the shoot time-frame, Singer says: “I start shooting April 15th in Montreal, probably until October," followed by, "It’s a big movie. It’ll be the biggest movie I’ve ever made.” As for the movie's timeline, we already heard that part of the story would be set in the '70s and Singer confirms this, adding, “Richard Nixon’s in it, that’ll be an interesting casting choice… There’ll also be some more science-fiction-type aspects to the story and, without giving it away, some technology that we haven’t seen yet in the X-Men universe.” Just use better makeup than they did on Watchmen and it'll be fine! He doesn't reveal whether any more cast members from his previous X-movies will return, but says he got the impression that everyone he has spoken to about it was "kind of excited to come back".

Peter Dinklage To Play Main Antagonist In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Variety has learned that Golden Globe winner, Peter Dinklage will be the main antagonist in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When news broke last night, many suggested that Dinklage would be playing Puck, a member of Alpha Flight with ties to Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) Canadian past. However, Variety reports (below) that Dinklage will be playing a villain, not a hero, ruling out Puck. My own personal suggestion was that Dinklage would be playing Sugar Man, a prominent villain in many alternate dimension X-Men tales. Other theories are that he'll be mocapping the Sentinels or that he'll be playing Boliver Trask, the creator of the mechanical giants (I doubt it will be Trask as he was previously played by Bill Duke in X-Men: The Last Stand). We'll have more news as the story develops.


"It is unknown at this time what character Dinklage would be playing but sources have told Variety it would be the main antagonist."

He reiterates prior comments on the follow-up to 2011's First Class using technology never used before in an X-Men film, and he also confirms that we'll see characters, story, etc. that we have yet to see in the franchise. In fact, Singer says that Days Of Future Past is more of its own thing than a sequel. "This movie's gonna be not only quite epic, 'Days of Future Past,' but it also takes place in completely different times than the 'X-Men' movies have taken place. There'll be new technology, new things we haven't seen before in 'X-Men' films. Certain characters and certain story and certain drama that hasn't be done yet, so it's not so much sequel. It's more of its own kinda thing."

One of the most criticized aspects of the X-Men franchise is the number of continuity issues, and while an excellent film, First Class didn't really help in that area. When asked if Days Of Future Past will be a reset of sorts for the series, Singer lets slip that, "I'll be able to correct a few things."

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Chris Cooper to Play Green Goblin

Chris Cooper has signed on to play Norman Osborn in Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Columbia Pictures. The character of Osborn is pivotal in the franchise because he is the alter ego of the Green Goblin, which was played by Willem Dafoe in the original Spider-Man movies. It is unclear whether Cooper will make his villainous turn in this film or in a sequel. Osborn starts out as a mentor to the superhero before turning bad. The film stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone as the webslinger and his love interest.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Cleveland Filming Spots Indicate Action Scenes

Contrary to reports that filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier was pushed back to June, Frank Grillo, who plays the villainous Crossbones, may have reaffirmed, yesterday, what Falcon actor Anthony Mackie revealed last month: principal photography will kick off on April 1st. With directors Joe and Anthony Russo shooting the Marvel sequel primarily in their hometown, Cleveland, Ohio, a couple of their scouted locations may have been outed. According to Twitter sources, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will film an “epic chase scene on the famous Cleveland [Memorial] Shoreway,” in addition to, “scenes in [one of] Cleveland’s largest bank vaults.” If these locations have been locked-in and Cleveland is doubling for New York City, as Marvel achieved with The Avengers last year, it seems the “Political Thriller” will feature bank robbery action scenes.

Meanwhile, Sebastian Stan will start prepping for Captain America: The Winter Soldier devotedly, considering his finale performance for the Broadway play Picnic was last Sunday. However, Stan told BlackBook that the live show provided an early start. “It became a great challenge to want to get into shape [for Picnic], but it coincides with [The Winter Soldier], where I have to be in shape. So, why not kill two birds with one stone?” When pressed about always being into comics, Stan admitted, “No. I didn’t know about comic books. We didn’t have comic books where I was growing up. I just discovered [them] now. I needed to become familiar with them, at least this story,” the actor added, referring to Ed Brubaker’s ‘Winter Soldier’ storyline. Also, after ending his Picnic run, Stan was greeted outside the theatre by fans, two of whom flaunted their Bucky and Captain America bears. “He took a normal photo with Captain Ameribear,” the fan writes. “[Stan] Then said, ‘Wait! This is what I’m going to do in Winter Soldier’ and choked the bear. It was amazing!”

Halle Berry Confirms Her Return As Storm In X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST


With multiple actors from the original X-Men trilogy set to reprise their roles in the next installment of the franchise, Days Of Future Past, one of the most frequently asked questions was if Halle Berry would be returning as Storm in the Bryan Singer-directed sequel to 2011's First Class. The actress recently said that she would likely reprise the role, despite Singer not sounding entirely certain about it. Now, speaking with Black Tree TV while promoting The Call, Berry confirms that she will indeed be back as Ororo Munroe. "Yeah. I'm excited too. The fans really love Storm, and so I'm really happy that it's worked out that way. No matter what my part will be or won't be, to be a part of that is always a good thing. I love it." Halle Berry joins an already impressive ensemble cast.

10 Cameos For The CW's ARROW


With a focus on realism, The CW's Arrow has treated viewers to a number of cameos from DC Comics characters on its way to becoming the networks most watched show. Here's ten characters perfect for future guest spots.

The CW's Arrow is a bona fide hit and is the network's most watched show. Naturally, the leads are showrunner interpretations of DC Comics character Green Arrow and supporting characters based on Black Canary and Merlyn. Only sixteen episodes in, we've already been treated to a host of DC Comics characters such as Deathstroke, Deadshot, China White, Yao Fei, Manhunter, Firebug, Huntress, Count Vertigo, Roy Harper and many more. It may seem like Arrow is burning through non-powered DC characters faster than Batman burns through sidekicks but there's still plenty of characters who could drop by Starling City for a visit.


The Question
Once upon a time, Vic Sage fans were the hardcore of the hardcore but an exceptional run on the animated Justice League Unlimited show put him in the spotlight as a paranoid, Mulder-esque loner who sees conspiracies everywhere (Aglets anyone?). Fans of JLU might not know that his romantic ties to The Huntress go beyond the JLU and are firmly rooted in comic book lore. That's significant as most fans know that Green Arrow and Black Canary are all but fated to end up together and Sage would be a nice consolation prize for a heartbroken Helena (Think Éowyn of TLOTR who loses Aragorn to Arwen but finds love in Aragorn-clone, Faramir). Through The Question, the door is also opened to such characters as Richard Dragon, Lady Shiva and Aristotle Rodor.


Sportsmaster
Another character that's seen a sudden rise in fame thanks to animation. An incredibly lame character suddenly became pretty badass in Young Justice. Writers often look for challenges and I can't think of a bigger challenge than making Sportsmaster look cool. The writing team has already shown that they're not afraid to take a risk, previously tackling the incredibly campy Royal Flush Gang.


Katana
Tatsu Yamashiro is at the forefront of DC Comics right now with a new solo series and central spot on Geoff Johns' Justice League of America team. Johns recently wrote the "Dead To Rights' episode on the show and he wrote the JSA episode of Smallville. We're probably still a ways away from seeing such things in Arrow but the show is already heavily vested with martial-arts practitioners so a katana-weilding female samurai would fit right in.


Black Spider
Sometimes thought to be DC's answer to Spider-Man, Black Spider was a 1976 creation from Spidey writer Gerry Conway who had a drug habit that was so bad, he knocked over a drug store and killed the owner who he realized was his own father after he came out of his drug-induced haze. Upon realizing what he had done, Eric Needham swore vengeance on the drug trade and became a costumed vigilante. However, his methods were too ruthless and eventually he ran afoul of Batman and morphed into a full-fledged villain. With the prominence of the drug Vertigo in Arrow, his story could easily be reworked to fit the show.


Nightwing
Frequent visitors know I make no effort to hide my love of the character! The DC Trinity are out according to the showrunners but does that include sidekicks and proteges? Probably so, I'd wager the entire Bat-family is off the table (although we did get a Bludhaven reference) but I'm still going to stomp for my man Grayson. As I always say, it's a great way to have Batman without actually having Batman and Richard has ties to just about every nook and cranny in the DC universe.


Hush
Another way to have Batman without actually having Batman, but in this case, it's more like having Bruce Wayne without actually having Bruce Wayne. We're probably still two or more seasons away from a character so closely mired in the Batman mythos but Hush is a character on the outer fringes of that inner circle (moreso than say a Riddler or Penguin) making him a more ideal choice.


Wildcat
At this juncture, Ted Grant would probably be a tricky character to weave into the show. The character has deep ties to Black Canary and through her, Green Arrow. Primarily, the brawler is Black Canary's trainer and one of the biggest influences upon her developing into one of DC's premiere martial artists.


Onomatopoeia
A creation of Kevin Smith and Phil Hester back in 2002, this deranged killer hunts costume vigilantes for sport while maintaining a normal civilian life as a loving husband and father. His family has no clue about his murderous activities in his double-life. He keeps trophies of his victims in a private shrine room and holds empty spaces for the two characters he's infatuated with, Batman and Green Arrow.


Ted Kord
Can we please get some love for the original Blue Beetle (second actually)? At this point, after repeated tries, the Jaime Reyes experiment is a bit of a failure, right (lets see if Vibe fares any better)? Despite numerous tries, the character simply can't carry a solo title but imagine the fervor if Ted Kord returned....A cameo spot on Arrow would go a long way towards helping that come about.


Natas
It's entirely possible that an appearance from Natas is in the works already. The master martial artist is most prominently known for training Deathstroke and being one of the many, quasi-evil residents of Nanda Parbat which was mentioned by Malcolm Merlyn in the last episode of Arrow. Is Natas the person who trained Malcolm? Did Natas train Manu Bennett's Slade Wilson? Would make a neat ending circle for some of the show's revolving mysteries.

Joss Whedon Confirms Agent Coulson Is Returning From The Dead In S.H.I.E.L.D.

From previous interviews, we knew Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) would be the lead of ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. show but we didn't know how showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen, Joss,Jed, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb would accomplish this seeing as how Coulson died at the hands of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers. With the show taking place after the climatic battle with the Chituari in NYC many theorized that Coulson would be seen in flashback, that he was really a robot, a Skrull shape-shifter or something else equally outlandish. Well S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Joss Whedon told the crowd at SXSW that Coulson is in fact returning from the dead.


“I’ll tell you guys this, Heimlich,” Whedon joked, before effectively clamming up about the show. “I can’t talk about it,” he admitted, but said that he did bring Coulson back from the dead for the ABC drama. “Yes. For realsies.”


Now that it's established that Coulson really did die in The Avengers and that Fury didn't lie to the other Avengers, the question now is HOW does Coulson come back from the dead? There are a number of items and methods that this could be used to accomplish this in the pages of Marvel Comics but the vast majority of such devices have yet to be presented in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


And for anyone still doubting, Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg is spreading the news on twitter.

AQUAMAN: Greg Beeman on Directing Mercy Reef

Back in 2006, director/producer Greg Beeman, who had been a part of Smallville from the beginning and was getting ready to move on to NBC's Heroes, helmed the Aquaman pilot Mercy Reef. He reflects on that effort in this interview excerpt.

Along with Al Gough and Miles Millar, Greg Beeman was one of the defining voices of Smallville, doing his part to enrich the journey of Clark Kent from angst-ridden teenager to his eventual destiny as Superman. And while in 2006 the producer/ director left Smallville to segue over to NBC and Tim Kring’s drama Heroes, he did manage to squeeze in the directing of the $7 million Aquaman pilot, Mercy Reef,which seemed destined to go to series, though it ultimately did not. Particularly noteworthy about the pilot is that it saw Justin Hartley in the role of Arthur Curry, prior to his being cast as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on Smallville. Several years ago, Voices From Krypton editor Ed Gross sat down with Beeman for an exclusive interview to discuss the making of the pilot.

VOICES FROM KRYPTON: Overall, what’s your feeling about having directed the Aquaman pilot?

GREG BEEMAN: It was a very good experience shooting it. The three big action sequences were the most challenging, particularly in making it feel like it was a cousin to Smallville while at the same time coming up with a different look from that show. We did that with a Caribbean, warm, Miami look, which I thought was successful. I really like the cast that we came up with; they were very appealing. It was a very difficult shoot as you can imagine. Even though it was a pretty healthy budget for TV, it was difficult to accomplish all of that water work and all of that special effects work, but it was fun.



VOICES FROM KRYPTON: You mentioned three action sequences that were challenging. What were they and what was particularly challenging about them?

BEEMAN: The first sequence had this mythic quality, which was really exciting. I’ll tell you the truth, for the first sequence, which is the plane flying with the little boy and the mother in the Bermuda Triangle, I didn’t have a script for a long time. I was given an outline for that sequence, which was in December, and I started working on the storyboards immediately, presupposing what was going to be written. It was sort of a classic movie opening, I thought. It had elements of The Lion King, which I really loved, in the climax of that opening scene where he’s lifted up out of the water by the whales.



VOICES FROM KRYPTON: It’s a pretty amazing and intense sequence.

BEEMAN: It also had the plane underwater. I love that kind of stuff, it’s really fun. Basically we had the chassi of a plane that was on a gigantic crane. We were in a swimming pool that was about 18-feet deep. Essentially when I yelled “Action,” they would lower the plane in the water and fill it up. I thought the D.P. did a great job of lighting it and we were referencing Titanic with the lights flickering. It was pretty amazing watching that plane on camera actually filling up with water every take. But one thing that I hadn’t really thought about before we got into it was hypothermia. Even if water is heated to 80-degrees, which I think is how warm the water we were in was heated to, it’s still lower than body temperature. When you’re in it all day long, it’s going to have an effect on your cast. The poor actress who was playing Aquaman’s mother had no body fat on her and she was freezing. When she was telling him to get out, she was shivering so hard. We’d already done four or five takes and between every take it would take 10 minutes to lift the plane out of the water again. She gave me this look which was like, “I’m going to do exactly what you want, and if you ask for one more take I’m going to kill you!” She did a great job with it.
 


VOICES FROM KRYPTON: How did Justin handle the water?

BEEMAN: Our very first day was him in a pool sort of on a bungee chord that was designed to pull him very quickly through the water. We had a gigantic blue screen in the pool, so we could use it for whatever shots we wanted of him swimming later. We probably did 60 or 80 takes of various swimming – swim left, swim right, swim over the camera, swim under the camera. But by the end of the first day in the water, he went to the hospital because his eyes were lacerated with chlorine; he couldn’t open his eyes. He spent like 14 hours in a chlorinated pool and his eyes were swollen shut. We had a couple of days off after that and we never had that problem again, but on that whole show, Al and Miles and I would constantly turn to each other and say, “What have we gotten ourselves in to?” Because it was just so big and we were trying to figure out how we were going to do this on a series.

Quicksilver!

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/american-horror-story-star-joins-555404

Bryan Singer confirms that Evan Peters will portray Quicksilver in the sequel.

American Horror Story breakout Evan Peters has joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past.


Director Bryan Singer made the announcement Thursday via Twitter, breaking the news that the young actor will portray Quicksilver in the upcoming Fox movie, which combines two X-Men franchises.

"Before he was an #Avenger, he was just a REALLY fast kid. Thrilled to say #EvanPeters is joining #XMen #DaysOfFuturePast as #Quicksilver," Singer wrote.

Quicksilver is the son of villain Magneto, who appeared in Issue No. 4 of Marvel's X-Men comic. The speedster later became a member of The Avengers, with his sister the Scarlet Witch.

The casting poses an interesting conundrum for the Marvel universe. Writer-director Joss Whedon recently confirmed that Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch would be part of Avengers 2, being produced by Marvel Studios -- a rival production company to Fox. The casting potentially opens the door to a rare studio crossover.

The film also features First Class castmembers Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult, with original X-Men trilogy actors Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore on board to reprise their roles. Peter Dinklage is playing an unspecified villain.

Days of Future Past is scheduled to hit theaters July 18, 2014.

For his part, Peters has been one of the breakout stars of FX's anthology American Horror Story. He's set to return for the rebooted witch-themed third season, subtitled Coven, when the Ryan Murphy drama returns in October. He's one of the few actors to have appeared in all three seasons.

Marvel continues to add some interesting acting clout to its space-set superhero fantasy “Guardians of the Galaxy,” with Benicio Del Toro the latest thesp to join the growing cast.

The character Del Toro would play has not yet to be revealed.

Like most actors that sign up to star in Marvel’s films, Del Toro’s deal will involve multiple films.

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly and Dave Bautista also star, while “Doctor Who’s” Karen Gillan recently signed on to play a female villain.

James Gunn (“Super”) is directing “Guardians,” which Disney will release Aug. 1, 2014.

“Guardians” revolves around a U.S pilot who bands with a group of ex-cons from other planets after he’s thrust in the middle of a universal conflict. Marvel is positioning the film as its own “Star Wars.”

Del Toro will next be seen in “Jimmy P,” which bowed at the Cannes Film Festival.

Joss Whedon's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Filmed On Location In Paris, France

They've just posted the interview today but GQ(Uk) caught up with Joss Whedon back in February to discuss a number of topics but for our purposes, the most interesting parts of the conversation pertain to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Joss confirmed that some of the show was shot on location in Paris, France. "I was in Paris last week finishing shooting the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, edited the entire thing, sent it to the network, and then came here. So basically I'm a wreck," said Whedon of his busy February schedule. Whedon also bluntly states that Agent Coulson is the focus of the show. "[Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.] basically opens with the idea that since The Avengers things have changed. Now everybody knows that there are gods and monsters, and what is the world like," asked Whedon. He continued, "[Clark Gregg] is the star of the show. It was part of the genesis of it: you know what makes this tick is this guy. And then there was all the "but didn't you make him stop ticking?" But all will be revealed…"

There's a bit more talk about Joss' role as Phase II Consultant but it's mostly rhetoric we've heard before. He acknowledges that he has some input in the other Phase II films but admits that the broad elements of Avengers II are already in place while plotting the other Phase II films so much of the coordinating has already been completed. When the conversation turned to Star Wars and director J.J. Abrams, Whedon offered up, "I have to say, I think [J.J. Abrams'] perfect to be doing Star Wars and I don't think he needs my advice." He continued, comparing Star Wars and Avengers, acknowledging that, "They're different beasts. Star Wars you have an "in" that is not even based on the characters. With the Marvel movies, I give a lot of credit to them for getting people in theatres to see a film like Thor, because who knows about Thor that isn't a comic book geek or Norse?" Whedon went on to elaborate, "You still have to earn it [with a Marvel film]. With Star Wars, if the prequel proved anything it's that you don't have to earn it. I think JJ is the kind of guy who will know where the line is: where you must be completely faithful and when you must bring in something completely new."

New Love Interest For Oliver In ARROW Season 2

The first season of The CW's Arrow saw a number of love interests for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). There was of course, Sara Lance (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and her sister, Laurel (Katie Cassidy). And there was also Huntress (Jessica De Gouw), McKenna Hall (Janina Gavankar), Shado (Celina Jade), and while there wasn't much romantic interaction between them, there's also fan favorite Felicity Smoak played by Emily Bett Rickards ('Olicity', look it up). And with the explosive season finale leaving the relationship between Oliver and Laurel in a very precarious situation, there's a new report that yet another woman will enter Oliver's life to complicate matters. Reports Spoiler TV, "Arrow is currently casting for a new major recurring character/possible series regular for Season 2. Here name is Lisa and is described as a mysterious woman with a tragic past. She will wreak havoc on Oliver's heart and is equal to Oliver in every way."

'Lisa' is probably just a cover name so as to not give away the character's identity during the casting process. And in trying to think of a DC Comics femme fatale who fits that brief description, I've hit a bit of a brick wall as all the 'likely' candidates have already appeared on the show. The bit that she's 'equal to Oliver in every way' makes me believe that she'll be a serious butt kicker. Lady Shiva rings a bell but that's just my personal speculation, we shouldn't rule out the possibility that it's a newly created character. Regardless, it appears that Oliver's love life will be just as interesting in Season 2 as it was in the first 23 episodes.

ARROW Season Two Will Feature 2 Main Baddies

In a new interview with TV Guide, Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim looks ahead to the second season of The CW's Arrow. Specifically, the discussion centered around the type of adversaries Oliver will face moving forward. While the first season featured a plethora of "villain of the week" adversaries for Oliver, the main antagonist was Malcolm Merlyn played by John Barrowman. In season two, there will of course be more, "smaller" antagonists for Arrow to face but this time there will be TWO "Malcolm Merlyn-type" ne'er-do-wells plaguing Starling City. Said Guggenheim:

"We made no secret of the fact that we subscribe to the Whedonesque model of having a big bad, and in Season 2, we'll actually have two big bads. They'll both be very recognizable names to fans of the comic book. We're really excited about both of them. With Malcolm and the Dark Archer, we sort of had two big bads in one person. In Season 2, we're going to split them up essentially, and there will be a Malcolm-esque big bad and a Dark Archer-esque big bad."

What are the odds that the Dark Archer-esque villain is Slade Wilson (Manu Bennet) aka Deathstroke? Guggenheim acknowledged that Slade Wilson will definitley be a Season Two focus.

"If the question of Season 1 is, 'What happened to Oliver on that island?' The question of Season 2 is, 'What happened to Slade Wilson on that island?'"

Earlier today I wrote an editorial exploring that I thought I had caught a brief glimpse of Christopher Reeves in Zack Snyder's incredible Man of Steel. A few hours later a few low resolution images surfaced. Hit the jump to make up your own mind...

Stephen Amell Says Bigger Characters Than Green Arrow Appearing In ARROW Season 2

"The thing that makes me most excited about the show is that when we were up shooting the pilot, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim came to me with ideas for Season One - 'Here's where we're looking at taking Season One.' All of these things happened, all of these fleshed out ideas ended up taking place. They sat me down [again] after my last post-production work for Season One back in Los Angeles and Andrew Kreisberg sat me down and gave me the big pitch and then after I got the pitch he went 'OK, here's the game-changer.' And the game-changer is a 'game-changer.' I can't say [specifics] but it's something and some people that aren't just familiar to DC Comics fans...they're like...more familiar than Green Arrow."

Now Amell was careful not to give away any specifics but his words and his body language leads me to believe that we're going to see some MAJOR DC Comics characters in Season Two. With the first season being such a success, it's entirely possible that Warner Bros. has decided to become more lenient with who's available and who's off the table in terms of their DC characters. Remember, there currently isn't a Batman film in the works and the network is already actively retooling their Wonder Woman pilot. It's entirely possible that Diana of Themyscira is being retooled to spin more organically out of Arrow. Either way, I'm hoping we'll have more definitive reveals at this year's San Diego Comic Con which producer Andrew Kreisberg has confirmed to me that they'll be attending.

Sony Reportedly Looking For New Actress To Play 'Mary Jane' In THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 3

Earlier today, it was revealed that Shailene Woodley's scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 had been cut from the movie. Director Marc Webb would later release a statement in which he revealed that he made this decision in order to focus on the relationship between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone). Well, despite saying that "we all love working with her", The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the following in their report on The Descendants actress no longer appearing in the sequel: "It is likely that Woodley will not return and that the part will be recast." However, rather than it being a case of the studio not being happy with her performance as Mary Jane Watson, The Wrap adds: "Woodley will likely be busy with the sequels to her upcoming sci-fi movie "Divergent" and may not be available, so the role may have to be recast."

Exclusive: Zack Snyder Wants Mark Strong As Lex Luthor For Man of Steel 2

With Man of Steel tipping the scales domestically at over $200 million it seems a sequel is more than likely, with lots of talk surrounding that.

Both director Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill have stated they want more Superman before the Justice League movie, as well as mention of Big Blue taking the lead in the JL film as well.

There has also been a rather large development at Warner Bros. in regards to WB Movie president Jeff Robinov apparently leaving; just how that affects the DC movies remains to be seen.

Chatting with our DC Entertainment source, we were told the following.

Robinov was a big DC supporter; depends what the new guy at the top thinks, but the source is pretty sure all of WB will get behind the DCCU after Man of Steel.

We were told a tidbit regarding General Swanwick in the Man of Steel as the character was originally General Lane, and that is how Lois got access to Superman when he surrendered. They changed it around and replaced General Lane with General Swanwick played by Harry Lennix.

The source says it's been said that filming for the Man of Steel sequel will be begin next year, and Mark Strong is wanted for Lex Luthor by Zack Snyder. Expect pre-production to start coming together by October-December.

David Goyer is hard at work on a first draft of the screenplay for Man of Steel 2. The source says Chris Nolan is sort of overseeing the script/story, but may not have as much input as before as he is focusing on his new film project, Interstellar.

The source noted he would personally like Jonathan Nolan to help Goyer with the screenplay.

Also, David Goyer has a short treatment for Justice League, but there is no story or script so far.

Our DC Entertainment source previously provided us information on the Man of Steel including the bus crash scene that was featured in the movie and more.

Joss Whedon Teases Quicksilver And Scarlet Witch's "Huge" Role In THE AVENGERS 2

As you will already know by now, Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox created a fair bit of controversy when it was revealed that they also had plans for the character of Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Regardless, that hasn't stopped The Avengers 2 director Joss Whedon from forging on with his plans to use him and his sister the Scarlet Witch, and at the Saturn Awards, Whedon would reveal that they do indeed play a major role in the movie. "It's a huge part of the movie, I'm really excited about it and I don't know what they're doing. I'm determinedly not knowing. They'll do their thing and I have to do mine." This shouldn't really come as too much of a surprise. While Singer reportedly only wants Quicksilver for a single action sequence, Marvel Studios and Joss Whedon clearly have big plans for his and the Scarlet Witch's introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Karen Gillan Briefly Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Like many things surrounding Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation, Karen Gillan's role in the forthcoming cosmic extravaganza is currently unknown. While reports implied that Gillan's character would be a main villain, the Doctor Who alum attended the Edinburgh Film Festival, where she offered Scotsman a bit about her involvement. “I can’t really say anything about it other than my character is really bad. My hands are more tied on this than they were on Dr Who!”

From Nebula, Medusa and Nikki Gold to Thanos' beloved Death, and new Marvel character Angela, speculation has been rampant about which baddie Karen Gillan is playing in the Guardians film. However, with the James Gunn-directed production starting last week (for scenes involving "Kyln inmates"), Marvel may announce filming's commencement tomorrow, along with a synopsis, the film's cast and their characters, and perhaps reveal a first production photo.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, John C. Reilly, Enzo Cilenti, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan and Glenn Close with Benicio Del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is written & directed by James Gunn, and is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014.

Colton Haynes Reveals 'ARROW' Season 2 Opens With A Timeskip

"It's completely different," said Colton Haynes when asked to compare MTV's "Teen Wolf" to The CW's "Arrow." He continued, "'Teen Wolf' is about a lot of close, special relationships and sfx makeup. With 'Arrow,' there are really great relationships but it's on a really massive scale, we have cranes flying, and at any point there's so many cameras filming, there's just a great budget and the show's just had great success due to their comic book fans and due to DC. We're able to do so many different things with 'Arrow.' We're able to shoot so many things, some of it doesn't even make it on to tv." Haynes goes on to discuss some of the scenes that were left on the cutting room floor, particularly a few scenes between Roy and Thea Queen (Willa Holland). In fact, Haynes says that the second season premiere has a timeskip and that Roy and Thea's relationship is pretty defined. In looking ahead to how their relationship will develop over the course of the second season, Colton says an interesting dynamic will be which one of the couple will find out that Oliver (Stephen Amell) is really Arrow first? If Roy finds out first, does he keep that from Thea and vice versa?

Arrow Season 2 Scoop: Summer Glau to Guest Star as Classic DC Comics Character

Watch your back, Oliver (Stephen Amell), there's a new villain coming to town!

Production on Arrow's highly-anticipated second season kicked off this week in Vancouver and we just got our hands on some seriously awesome casting news that will make fans even more excited for the CW breakout hit's return in October. Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles star Summer Glau is set to join the series in a recurring role. Go on, geek out!

Glau will take on the role of Isabel Rochev, the enigmatically beautiful and professionally dangerous Vice President of Aquisitions of Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated.


While fans have yet to hear much about Isabel on the series (her name was briefly seen on Robert's list of people who have corrupted, or as Oliver would say "failed," Starling City), readers of the original comics are surely buzzing over her introduction in season two.

From a small village in Siberia where she worked in a diamond mine, Isabel fell in love with Robert Queen and became determined to make something of herself. After Robert's death years later, she becomes the CEO of Queen Industries, corrupts Star City and is keen on seeing Oliver dead.

Isabel believed she was the true love of Robert's life, so much so that she was known to wear his wife's wedding ring. Moira (Susanna Thompson), you better watch your company and your jewels, which may be hard to do from behind bars.

Of course, Arrow has strayed from the original DC Comics, so who knows what version of the character Glau will be tackling.

Glau has long been a genre fan favorite, thanks to her iconic role as River in Joss Whedon's short-lived but cult hit Firefly, as well as her turn as Cameron, a Terminator, in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She has also made memorable guest appearances on Hawaii Five-0, Dollhouse, Grey's Anatomy and Chuck.

In the season one finale of Arrow, Oliver defeated Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) aka the Dark Archer, but only after half of the city was destroyed, resulting in his best friend Tommy's (Colin Donnell) tragic death.

Amell recently posted a video teasing season two on his Facebook page, saying, "It's going to be so much fun."

Arrow returns for its second season on Oct. 9 on the CW.

New Details On Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D & Coulson's Resurrection

 Ahead of next week's SDCC panel, EW have managed to uncover some new details on Marvel's upcoming tv series, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. The site reveal a couple of very interesting things about Agent Coulson's (Clark Gregg) return too, so if you don't mind mild SPOILERS:

1. The pilot hints at how mild-mannered kick-ass bureaucrat Agent Coulson (Clarke Gregg) was resurrected to lead the team after being killed off in The Avengers (his S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues say he must “never know the truth” about his death). Yet you’ll have to keep watching to learn the full story. “We can’t wait to pull the curtain back on that,” says co-creator Jed Whedon. “[But] we’re going to take our time.”

2. The S.H.I.E.L.D. story will work in tandem with the Marvel films, both past and upcoming. In fact, the first episode will pick up a storyline that’s familiar from one of the Marvel hits — and it’s not The Avengers. “We plan on trying to weave in between the films and try to make them more rewarding on both ends,” says Jed Whedon, who points out the trick is to make the audience not ask a certain fanboy-bar-fight-style question: “In any of these [episodes], you can always ask: ‘Why don’t they just call Iron Man?’” Yeah, that would be annoying! So our next question is: Why don’t they just call Iron Man? “They are aware of each other,” Whedon says of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and the metal-suited Malibu playboy, “but they do have to have their own lives.”

3. Here’s a question from the Internets that will be answered in the pilot: Does J. August Richards play Rage? Expect that and other revelations at the Comic-Con panel, just not a ton of them. “We’ll finally be able to answer some questions,” says co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen. “Though I’m sure we’ll have to stay on the vague end of the spectrum.”

CW’s ‘Arrow’ Casts ‘The Pact’s’ Caity Lotz as Black Canary

“The Pact” star Caity Lotz is set to play the Black Canary on The CW’s “Arrow,” TheWrap has learned.

While the Black Canary will start out as a recurring role, Lotz is expected to eventually become a series regular, as her character will be groomed as a love interest for Arrow (Stephen Amell).

The Black Canary is a notable character in the DC Comics franchise, and both The CW and the producers of “Arrow” are high on its potential.

Created by the writer-artist team of Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino, the Black Canary is the alter-ego of Dinah Drake. Comic magazine Wizard once ranked Black Canary as the 71st greatest comic book character of all time.

Lotz, who had a recurring role on AMC’s “Mad Men,” also starred on the MTV series “Death Valley.” She’ll soon be seen in Screen Gems’ dance film “Battle of the Year,” as well as the indie movies “The Machine” and “Live at the Foxes Den.”

Lotz’s casting arrives about a week after news broke that “Arrow” had brought on cult character actress Summer Glau in the role of Isobel Rochev, a Queen family friend and also a speculative love interest for Arrow.

Caity Lotz Is NOT Playing Dinah Drake On ARROW According To Executive Producer

Last night, it was reported that The Pact actress Caity Lotz has joined the Arrow cast for season two. The surprising bit? She was said to be playing Dinah Drake/Black Canary for a recurring role which would eventually turn into a series regular. Many expected Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance to don the costume of Oliver Queen's most significant love interest. Now, TV Guide confirms that Lotz won't be playing Drake on the show, via executive producer Andrew Kreisberg (who wouldn't reveal who exactly she would be playing).

"There's been a bit of misinformation printed out there and what I would say is, yes, Caity Lotz is joining the show in a recurring role and we're really excited," he tells the site. "She's a tremendously talented actress. The character she's playing is really the beginning of the story of the Black Canary." He also had this to say about her possibly filling the Black Canary role. "The character that Caity is portraying is the beginning of the Black Canary story and we're really excited for the fans to go on the journey with us. So much of our show is about defying expectations, meeting expectations and exceeding expectations, and we really want our fans to experience the show by watching it and enjoying it and enjoying all the twists and turns and surprises the way we intend.

"Everything about our show is about origins and evolution," he continues. "When we met Deathstroke, everyone automatically assumed it was Slade Wilson [Manu Bennett] in the mask, but then we revealed we met Slade Wilson later. With Tommy [Colin Donnell], we thought that that was Merlyn, but Tommy was really the beginning of the Merlyn story because we saw how it evolved to John Barrowman and beyond. Oliver [Stephen Amell] himself, when we first meet him, he's not the Green Arrow yet. The series itself is an evolution of this character." As for whether or not Laurel Lance will become Black Canary, Kreisberg says, "Everyone knows that Laurel Lance is the Black Canary. That's the way it is in the comic books, but how we get from A to B is the story of our show. In the same way that Oliver, when we meet him, is the vigilante, but this season he's going to becoming the Arrow, that's the step of his journey to eventually becoming the Green Arrow. Laurel Lance right now is a lawyer with a lot of heart and a lot of humanity and courage. But it takes more than that to put on the mask and go out and fight crime. Our series is the evolution of that. People will see how Caity Lotz fits into Laurel's journey along the way. For us, it's very emotional and surprising and exciting. I would say to everybody, we haven't let you down so far. Keep going on this ride with us."

Arrow season two premieres on The CW Wednesday, October 9th.

Comic-Con 2013: Batman / Superman Film for 2015?
Flash races in 2016, Justice League may land 2017

Some potentially huge breaking news from inside Comic-Con today: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is set to announce that Henry Cavill’s Man Of Steel Superman will be teaming up with Batman in 2015, followed by a stand-alone Flash film in 2016 and the long-gestating Justice League in 2017.

Zack Snyder is set to direct the Supes/Bats team-up, which will be scripted by Man Of Steel collaborator David S. Goyer.

With Cavill back in the super-suit, the big question remains as to who will play Bruce Wayne/Batman, since Christian Bale has ruled out a return.

There are even fewer details thus far on the Flash and Justice League announcements beyond the release years, but with the Warner Bros./Legendary panel happening as we write this, expect more news to hit fairly soon today.

We have one of our best embedded in Comic-Con’s Hall H, so expect Empire’s team to bring you all the details once we have them…

Comic-Con 2013: X-Men: Days Of Future Past's Entire Cast Surprises Us

Finishing off The Wolverine panel, Hugh Jackman makes a plea. "One of the great things about being in a movie like this is the chance to do other things, and particularly being able to do smaller more indie movies, and I'd like to introduce you to the director of a film I've got coming up. It's a small movie, won't take long, hopefully Fox won't mind. Ladies and gentlemen, Bryan Singer!"
A surprise panel for X-Men: Days Of Future Past!

And as it turns out, quite a big one. Says Singer, "It's been like a decade. It's been a great journey making X-Men: Days Of Future Past in Montreal. None of the visual effects are complete and we still have a month of shooting to go, but I've put together a little bit of footage."

The big news? It's Wolverine who goes back in time to his younger body, who has to convince the younger Professor X and Magneto to team up and change the future! "You will do for me what I once did for you. Logan, I was a very different man. Guide me. Have patience with me," says Stewart. "Patience isn't my strong suit," says Logan.

We see a shaggy haired Professor X in his wheelchair, looking defeated. Magneto seems to be in an art gallery, and there are scenes of riots in the streets of London. Richard Nixon seems worried, there's a panic room under the White House and Wolverine gets shot repeatedly in the chest.

In the future, the world looks bombed out, the sky blackened, and the straits desperate. Storm, Magneto, Professor X, Rogue, Ice Man and Kitty Pryde seem to be hiding in ruins underground, and the spot where they send a grey-tipped Wolverine back looks almost like a sacrificial altar.

Finally, there's a shot of old Xavier and young Xavier nose-to-nose (in some kind of mind-space? Physically? It's not clear). "Please," begs Stewart of his embittered younger self. "We need you to hope again."

"This is a long table," notes Singer. There are a couple of "writers and producers" who might join us. So here's Simon Kinberg, Lauren Shuler Donner, Hutch Parker, Omar Sy, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Evan Peters.

"My name is Peter Dinklage and I play Bolivar Trask," says Dinklage simply. Evan Peters says his Quicksilver is "a bit of a spaz" as well as being fast. "He talks fast, moves fast, and everyone is very slow compared to him. He's like always waiting for the guy at the ATM in front to finish." Singer says, "Quicksilver was always a part of this as we were developing it, but it took a while to find the right actor for the role."

"He's got very good genes," says Fassbender. What does Quicksilver wear? "Hideous '70s clothes." "Wow wow wow!" says McAvoy. "I look incredible in this movie."

Jennifer Lawrence says of Mystique, "She's definitely starting to find her journey to the Rebecca Romijn, later Mystique that we know. She's still close to Charles - not geographically; she hasn't seen him in a long time."

"This is an embarrassment of riches," says Jackman. "To work with people from the very first film I ever did, and then to work with these new people, it's incredible."

"It's great to be in California, especially now you've repealed Proposition 8," says McKellen. "Now I'm looking for a husband... It's nice to meet you Michael [Fassbender]."

There are three Oscar winners on the panel, all women: Berry, Lawrence and Paquin. "What I love about Storm is that she's like the earth mother of the group, but she's also a badass when she needs to be. What I hate about Storm is she never gets any love! I mean what's up with Storm? You probably know more about the comic than me - is she asexual and nobody's told me? But I love her: when i got the call it didn't take me a half second to say that I'm in."

For Iceman, Ashmore says, "I think there's going to be some really cool stuff that people don't expect to see, and that they've been possibly waiting to see from these characters."

Omar Sy says, "I play Bishop. He's a guy from the future. He fights for survival, like all of us."

"Being true to the original comics is what's important for us," says Kinberg. "It's about trying to honour those as best we can." "It's only because the comics were written so well that we can spin these stories," says Shuler Donner.

"Look at this panel, the chance to work with not only people I've worked with before but the ensemble in the past, and all for the man who gave me my first job. Every day I'm grateful," says Jackman, who claims that he walked around town today in his full costume and prompted only comments of "Not bad" and "Way too tall!"

X-Men: Days Of Future Past is out in the US on May 23.

Comic-Con: Bronze Tiger, Brother Blood Coming to ‘Arrow’

SAN DIEGO (AP) — There are two new residents moving to Starling City — and they’re no friends of “Arrow.”

The addition of a pair of villains based on characters from the DC Comics universe was announced Saturday at the Comic-Con presentation for the crime-fighting CW series “Arrow.”

“Spawn” star Michael Jai White will play Ben Turner, a claw-wielding Suicide Squad assassin known as Bronze Tiger. He’ll form an alliance with China White, the alabaster-haired villainess played by Kelly Hu. “True Blood” and “Southland” actor Kevin Alejandro will portray Sebastian Blood, a savvy politician based on the “New Teen Titans” baddie Brother Blood.

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell was joined on Saturday’s panel by co-stars David Ramsey, Colton Haynes, Emily Bett Rickards and Katie Cassidy, as well as executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.

The panel launched with a trailer for the second season showing Amell’s Oliver Queen contemplating a new nickname and a butt-kicking masked woman believed to be the Black Canary, the famous DC Comics heroine and Arrow love interest.

Kreisberg hinted that “one of the things we’re doing this season is we’re telling the beginning of the Black Canary story” but wouldn’t say which character would be underneath the mask.

The second season of “Arrow” premieres Oct. 9.

THE FLASH Will Have His Classic Costume In New CW Series; More Details Revealed

In a conference call earlier today about CW's upcoming take on The Flash, it was confirmed that Barry Allen will feature in three episodes of Arrow, starting with eight and nine (both of which will take place in Starling City). However, he will later return for number twenty and it will be that which offers fans their first look at his world, thereby serving as a backdoor pilot for his own series. "When we first meet Barry Allen, he's just a forensic scientist...an ordinary man," Kreisberg confirmed, adding that the character and series will be grounded in the same reality as Arrow. "Part of the fun for the audience is to see how we view our Arrow take on the Flash legacy. Some of it will feel very familiar to DC Comics, some of it hopefully will feel different, fresh and exciting. The same way we approached Arrow is the same way we're approaching Barry."

As for how they are going about introducing a superpowered character to the realistic world of Arrow, Kreisberg was quick to point out that they've already thought of that and have something planned which will fit in tonally with what's come before. "There will be extraordinary events in the world and the characters will react in the same way. The fact he has superpowers, there's something more relatable about Barry among of the Big Seven of the Justice League. He got his powers by accident; he's not a god, he's not an alien...his reactions to that feel very...human and grounded." Geoff Johns was also on hand to answer questions and had this to say about this interpretation of Barry. "We're also exploring a very personal story for Barry, life as forensic scientist and the people around him, the tragedies and how he deals with them in a very different way than Oliver Queen." He would later add that they're still working on how Barry's powers will be portrayed, but it won't be just "blurring around." It was also confirmed that The Flash will have his classic costume, with Kreisberg saying: "No sweat suits or strange code names; he will be The Flash. We want to do something fresh, new and exciting and give people a real cinematic experience the same way we did with Arrow."

Bryan Singer Poses With A Days Of Future Past Sentinel

Looks like Bryan Singer found some serious muscle to back him up if anyone disagreed with his directing decisions on X-Men: Days Of Future Past, or had a problem with him taking pictures for Twitter every other day… Some seriously BIG muscle. In the shape of a Trask Industries sentinel ‘bot.

After posting endless shots of the X-Men and other elements from the movie, Singer has waited until the Trask Industries site was unveiled to show off the impressive and imposing physical model of the mutant-hunting Sentinel robot, one of several that will be cropping up in the movie’s dark alternate future.

Standing at a towering 18 feet tall, the Sentinel is named Larry and was found during an open casting call held in Alberta, Canada. He usually fills his days carving wood sculptures of the cast of Dynasty. Only one of those things is true (hint: it’s the Dynasty bit).

The Sentinels, which will be brought to life primarily via CG, are the creation of Peter Dinklage’s Bolivar Trask, a man who believes mutants are the biggest threat to mankind since, well, mankind itself. In the apocalyptic future of the X-universe, they track down, imprison and kill those with mutant genes, requiring our original X-Men gang to send Wolverine back in time to change the past.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past’s cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Omar Sy, Evan Peters and Halle Berry, and the film is out here on May 22 next year.

Bryan Singer Shooting X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Quicksilver Scenes At 3,600 FPS

Today's X-Men: Days Of Future Past Twitter tease via director Bryan Singer has hit, and it isn't as particularly revealing as prior on-set images. It does, however, offer an interesting tidbit on the way Singer is filming Quicksilver's (Evan Peters) scenes, which are being shot at 3,600 frames per second. 3,600 FPS is 150 times slower than common film (so Quicksilver moves up to 150 times as fast as most), and significantly brighter set pieces are needed for each frame. It's hard to make out what exactly Singer is shooting in the following behind-the-scenes image, but check it out below and stay tuned to CBM for more news as we have it.

Days Of Future Past Sentinel Blueprint Unveiled

Good old Bolivar Trask, eh? For decades now, he’s been working tirelessly to develop the Sentinel program, with the robotic guardians designed to keep humanity safe from the encroaching mutant threat. We all sleep better knowing these hulking, armoured warriors are keeping the peace. And now you can get a look inside one of their heads thanks to a new blueprint online from Trask Industries.

Okay, so we actually know they’re mechanical menaces destined to wreak havoc across the world and plunge humanity as well as mutantkind into a desperate war for survival in X-Men: Days Of Future Past. When that happens, we’ll be pinning our hopes on the very mutants we shunned. Thank goodness, then, that there are the likes of Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Erik “Magneto” Lehnsherr (Ian McKellen), Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to figure out a last-ditch, seemingly impossible plan to travel through time and try to fix things in the past, when their younger selves (or, in the case of Wolverine, ageless) are mired in conflicts of their own, and with each other.

Bryan Singer has almost finished shooting the latest mutant movie, which skips between the dark possible future and the 1970s, where the likes of Xavier (James McAvoy), Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) are trying to come to terms with the shattering events of X-Men: First Class years ago.

With Omar Sy, Peter Dinklage, Anna Paquin, Halle Berry, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Boo Boo Stewart, Fan Bingbing and Lucas Till all in the cast, X-Men: Days Of Future Past is set for release on May 22.

James Spader Is Avengers' Ultron!
He's signed as the robo-baddie for Joss Whedon's sequel

Poor old DC. Just when they think they might have control of the superhero news cycle for a day by announcing where Superman/Batman will shoot, along comes Marvel with a casting bombshell that rains on its parade even as it mixes metaphors. What news, you ask? Only that James Spader will play the titular menace in Avengers sequel Age Of Ultron.

Originally announced by writer/director Joss Whedon at Comic-Con, Age Of Ultron will see Tony Stark and the shawarma-chomping gang taking on a brand new threat torn from the pages of Marvel comic lore and given a spit-and-polish origin story wash for the big screen. Ultron is a criminally insane, rogue sentient robot dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity. He comes loaded with several powers, including, strength, agility, stunning intelligence and, oh yes, a rage-filled loathing for our heroes and an intent to destroy them. Bad robot! Bad!

Spader seems like a fine choice to play the role, given his ability to play smarts, snark and menace when required. Plus he should have a proper handle on Whedon’s trademark snappy dialogue, assuming Ultron gets to be quippy. Marvel’s statement doesn’t specify if he’ll be suiting up or stepping into a performance capture outfit a la Mark Ruffalo’s take on the Hulk, but we’d guess the latter. Spader's never done cartoon voice work or performance-capture before, so this marks a brave new dawn for the actor. But don't worry: he got a message of encouragement from the last guy to tangle with the supergroup, as Tom Hiddleston tweeted his support (see below).

With Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and most likely Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner back, the new cast will also include Elizabeth Olsen (assuming her deal closes) and a rumoured Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be out on May 1, 2015.

Doctor Strange Gets The Magic Green Light

The Doctor Strange movie may not be exactly new news, but the project has definitely moved on since the story first emerged. Marvel's top dog Kevin Feige, currently doing the press rounds to promote Thor: The Dark World, crystalised the studio's thinking in an interview with Movies.com. To whit: "It's in active development right now.”

“Doc Strange, as I’ve been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make," Feige elaborated. "We’re just figuring out how to make it a great movie.

Marvel's Phase 3 will kick off with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man in late 2015, followed by two yet-to-be-officially-announced projects in the summer of 2016 and ’17 respectively. Feige was tight-lipped about which of these would be Doctor Strange, if either.

“Whether that’s one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see,” he said. “I think it’ll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post Ant-Man films will be. Stuff might happen before that. It’s too early to tell.”

We suspect Feige is a little further on than he's admitting, since he said they already have "some ideas of what we're doing" in 2016 and 2017 that ruled out a female superhero-led film in the next few years, and our guess is that Strange will end up in one of those two slots. Still, Marvel is keeping its powder dry until Ant-Man is a little closer to shooting and Phase 2 is further advanced. In the meantime, we've kicked some ideas around on who should play the Sorcerer Supreme.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Officially On For Avengers 2

Despite the fact that everyone's been assuming that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was confirmed as Quicksilver for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, in reality, it has taken months for him – or his representatives, at least – to make a deal with Marvel. The ink is now dry, however, and he is confirmed for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel.

The actor’s name first surfaced in June, when he was reported as Marvel’s first choice for the role back in the days when we didn’t even know what the film would be called beyond “Avengers 2”… According to The Wrap, the big sticking point for officially coming aboard was his promotional commitments to Godzilla. But diaries have now been consulted, schedules juggled and compromises made so that he can both hit the road on a press tour and suit up as Pietro Maximoff, brother to Wanda, AKA Scarlet Witch (you can get an introduction to them both right here).

While her own casting hasn’t been officially confirmed, word comes (via Samuel L. Jackson!) that Elizabeth Olsen is set as Scarlet Witch.

With Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo among those returning for the new film, shooting is set to get under way early next year in the UK, where everyone will be battling rogue robot Ultron, played by James Spader.

Taylor-Johnson, as mentioned, has Godzilla next set for release and the monster movie stomps across our screens on May 16.

Elizabeth Olsen Joins Cast of Avengers Sequel, Age of Ultron

Elizabeth Olsen has some Marvelous news to share with you.

The 24-year-old actress has finally confirmed the rumor  that she has been cast in Joss Whedon 's highly anticipated Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, after Samuel L. Jackson let the cat out of the bag last month while speaking to the Wall Street Journal .

In an sit-down with MTV while making the press rounds for Oldboy, Olsen revealed that she'll play Wanda Maximoff, better known among the fanboy set as The Scarlet Witch. 

While admitting she didn't have much in the way of details, the younger sis of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did say the role will reunite her with her costar from the upcoming Godzilla remake, Aaron Taylor-Johnson ( Kick-Ass), whom The Wrap reported has been tapped to play Scarlet's twin brother, Quicksilver.

"We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister," Olsen said. "It's also fun because even though in Godzilla we play husband and wife, we don't have a lot of scenes together. I just love him. I love his family. I love his kids. I'm so excited we get to work with each other more and to actually work with each other. I think it's going to be fun."

Per Marvel lore, Scarlet and Quicksilver are the mutant children of Magneto, the notorious villain of the X-Men comic books. Her powers include the ability to cast hexes that enable her to do such wonders as deflect objects, create force fields and blow stuck up while her sibling's powers include moving and thinking at superhuman speeds.

Elizabeth attended Monday night's New York City premiere of Oldboy with Jackson (her costar in the Spike Lee-directed drama who also plays Nick Fury in the Marvel superhero franchise), and she had high praise for Whedon, whom she called whip smart.

"Some people are too smart for their own good, but he's amazing," she said.

Avengers: Age of Ultron, which stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and James Spader, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.

Meet Your New Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot

After months of speculation and weird fan Photoshop mock-ups, the DC Cinematic Universe finally has its Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot. The Israeli actress, who has made a name for herself in the Fast & the Furious series, will star as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince alongside Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in 2015′s Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs Superman. It’s unknown how large the role will be, but it’s significant in that this is the iconic character’s first feature film incarnation.

Originally, it was reported that Gadot was testing for a role believed to be Wonder Woman alongside G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko. Now, thanks to Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder, we know who won that Paradise Island throwdown.

In a statement presumably made from the window of his new invisible jet, Snyder said, “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.”

But, that’s not all, folks! Variety reports that Warners is looking to cast the villain in the film with Zero Dark Thirty and 300: Rise of an Empire star Callan Mulvey being eyed as the top candidate. Who could that villain be? My money is on Starro because why not.

Batman vs. Superman is set for release on July 17, 2015.

http://www.guy-announces-x-men-apocalypse-in-2016/

As official as any tweet can be, Bryan Singer, the director of next year’s hotly-anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past has announced that 2016 will see the release of the follow-up, X-Men: Apocalypse. This information, which of course we’re jumping because it’s awesome, was delivered in the following, very brief tweet by the director:


#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!

— Bryan Singer (@BryanSinger) December 5, 2013

 

Other than that, we have nothing. Even the guy who plays Iceman had no idea.


“@BryanSinger: #Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!” Whoa!!!! For real?!?!?

— Shawn R Ashmore (@ShawnRAshmore) December 5, 2013

 
SlashFilm is reporting that the tentative release date is May 27th, 2016. We’ll have more information when we have it, but knowing that another X-Men is on the way months before the movie is even released is a sign of both the studio’s excitement about the franchise and the director, and their desire to keep the train a-rolling given Sony’s recent announcement of ALL THE Spider-Man MOVIES!

Paul Rudd Confirmed To Play Ant-Man

 It's official: Marvel has now confirmed that Paul Rudd will play Hank Pym in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man. In a press release, the studio said Rudd had always been their first choice to fill the diminutive red suit.

"When Edgar came to us with the idea of Paul Rudd we felt a huge sense of relief," said producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. "We knew early on that we had found the right guy. He not only agreed to to do it but became as enthusiastic as any actor we've ever met with about doing the work. We couldn't be more excited for our audiences to see what he's going to do to bring Ant-Man to life."


A month or so ago we asked you, the revered Empire reader, who should play Ant-Man in the Marvel movie currently being plotted by Edgar Wright. You came back with a resounding ‘Paul Rudd’, possibly while blowing trumpets and banging pots together for emphasis, and it seems Team Marvel was listening. The Wrap cites unnamed sources reporting that Rudd is close to signing on the dotted line and has even started shedding about a hundred pounds for the role. That Unnamed Sources guy, eh? Boy, he knows some stuff.

Rudd has been circumspect on Hank Pym / Scott Lang (we're not entirely sure which one Edgar's going with) to date, managing to negotiate the Anchorman 2 junket without spilling a single bean on the topic, presumably by using his Sex Panther musk as a distraction. His rumoured rival for the part, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has, of course, got his hands full with a comicbook project of his own in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.

While we take a moment to consider the idea of Rudd and the equally loveable Mark Ruffalo sharing the Marvel universe, it’s worth looking back to 2008 when Edgar Wright first shared his vision for Ant-Man with Empire. “It’s more of a full-on action adventure sci-fi film but with a comedic element”, he explained at that early stage, “in the same spirit of a lot of escapist fare like that. It’s certainly not a superhero spoof or pastiche and it certainly isn’t a sort of Honey I Shrunk The Kids endeavour at all.”

Marvel’s confidence in Wright, co-screenwriter Joe Cornish and (probably) Rudd is great enough for it to have pushed Ant-Man into the cinematic boiler room that is summer 2015 - July 31, to be exact.

Bryan Singer Talks X-Men: Apocalypse
'It will address historical mutant-cy!'

As with the Apes franchise, we've not yet had the first sequel to X-Men: First Class, and yet we're already talking about the third instalment. X-Men: Days Of Future Past arrives shortly, but all eyes are now on X-Men: Apocalypse, the nascent existence of which director Bryan Singer revealed just before Christmas. Singer has now given some further cursory details of what's in store in 2016.

"It will address historical mutant-cy," Singer told EW, "meaning the deep past, mutant origins and things like that. It’s something that’s always intrigued me when we think about our Gods and our history and miracles and powers.”

In terms of specific plot, the director is saying nothing, but does confirm that "something that happens in Days Of Future Past causes what's going to happen in Apocalypse". He says he's as-yet undecided about whether there will be an Apocalypse teaser during the credits of this year's movie. Given recent precedent, however, we wouldn't call it unlikely.

And will Singer actually direct Apocalypse? That too is still to be determined. "I’m co-writing the story and I’m producing it,” he says, "and I’m negotiating to direct. We’re in the process. We’re trying to figure it out, schedules. My desire would be to direct it.”

For more Apocalyptic speculation, head over to Empire's handy first-thoughts guide. Days Of Future Past, meanwhile, stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Fan Bingbing, Daniel Cudmore... the list goes on.

Sadly, it will not feature Anna Paquin, but if it's any consolation we did just learn that Evan Jonigkeit is playing Toad. It's out in the UK on May 23.

Michael Douglas to Play Hank Pym in ANT-MAN

Merely a week after being told that Paul Rudd will indeed be starring in Edgar Wright’s highly-anticipated Ant-Man for Marvel, playing Scott Lang, we get word that none other than Hollywood legend and Liberace himself, Michael Douglas, has joined the film to play Hank Pym, the originator of the Pym Particles and the creator of the shrinky-dink technology.

In the comics, Hank Pym is renowned for being a violent spousal abuser, and there was some question as to whether the notoriously upbeat film franchise would go down such a dark path with its lead character. Turns out, no, they won’t. Rudd will be playing Scott Lang, who is a reformed thief who picks up the Ant-Mantle from Hank Pym, who can go ahead and be a wife beater, I guess, because he’s not the lead anymore.

From Marvel’s website, here’s what Marvel Entertainment Chieftain Kevin Feige had to say about the casting: “With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves. We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”

Ant-Man will be in theaters here in the United States of America on July 31st, 2015

Thomas Kretschmann Joins Avengers: Age Of Ultron

While we know who will be playing the primary Biggus Baddus in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron – James Spader as rogue artificial intelligence Ultron – Joss Whedon clearly wants to give Earth’s Mightiest Heroes a bit more of a challenge. As a result, Thomas Kretschmann is joining the cast as Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.

In the comics, Strucker was a German soldier disfigured by facial scars who became one of Hitler’s top men during his rise to power. He tangled with both Captain America and Nick Fury, and joined Hydra, becoming instrumental in its evil schemes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Strucker will once more be causing trouble for Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury and Chris Evans’ Cap, though its story doesn’t specify whether he’ll be seen in flashback to World War II, or will (more likely) be a troublemaker in the present day. Between The Winter Soldier and this, we bet Steve Rogers will be getting sick of his past coming back to haunt him.

Kretschmann joins a cast that includes the returning regulars Jackson, Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson plus franchise newcomers Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver). Don Cheadle also looks set to join the fun as James Rhodes.

Johansson recently talked up Whedon’s script for the sequel, saying, “It doesn’t lose that exciting comic-book aspect that people enjoyed in the first film, but it’s smart and it feels like the next instalment. It doesn’t feel like a rehashing, it feels like these characters are moving forward, plot lines are moving forward.”

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron will be out on May 1, 2015.

SUPERMAN-BATMAN Movie Gets Pushed Back To 2016

Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to push back the release of its highly anticipated Superman-Batman movie into 2016. The studio claims that this is the best move for them to provide their filmmakers with the “time to realize fully their vision.”

The movie was originally scheduled for release on July 15, 2015, but now won’t be hitting the big screen for almost an entire year after the original date, on May 6, 2016.  The delay came after production on the film got moved into the second quarter of this year. Warner Bros. Pictures’ untitled Peter Pan movie, however, will be moving its release date to July 17, 2015, filling in the gap being left by the Superman-Batman movie.

THE FLASH CW Pilot Finds Its Iris West

Actress Candice Patton, known for her role in the series The Game and the television movie The Craigslist Killer, has joined the cast for the CW pilot of DC Comics’ The Flash as Iris West. She joins Glee’s Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and Jesse L. Martin, who plays her father Detective West and also serves as a kind of surrogate father to Barry after his mother is murdered.

Although in the comics Iris is a reporter and Barry’s love interest (and eventual wife, in the old pre-New 52 continuity), in the upcoming show she is being described as “Allen’s fast-talking, quick-witted best friend.”  Of course, the biggest departure for her character is that unlike in the comics, this Iris will be African-American, as will the entire West family. So when Wally West turns up in the television series (assuming it goes to series), it’s safe to assume you can forget the ginger look.  The project is being developed by Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions.

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Has Found Its Lex Luthor and Alfred

You know what’s better than a million Batman vs. Superman casting rumors? A billion Batman vs. Superman casting rumors. Even better than that? Real, confirmed casting news straight from Warner Bros.! Well, today is your lucky day – or not, depending on how you take what comes next – because Warner Bros. announced in a press release that it has cast Jesse Eisenberg as Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons as Batman’s trusty butler Alfred. Prepare for the comment section to explode like Metropolis in Man of Steel in 3…2…1…

Here’s the official press release:

BURBANK, CA, January 31, 2014 – Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that Jesse Eisenberg has been set to star as Lex Luthor and Jeremy Irons will play Alfred in the upcoming Zack Snyder untitled Superman/Batman film. The dual announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Snyder stated, “Lex Luthor is often considered the most notorious of Superman’s rivals, his unsavory reputation preceding him since 1940. What’s great about Lex is that he exists beyond the confines of the stereotypical nefarious villain. He’s a complicated and sophisticated character whose intellect, wealth and prominence position him as one of the few mortals able to challenge the incredible might of Superman. Having Jesse in the role allows us to explore that interesting dynamic, and also take the character in some new and unexpected directions.”

The director added, “As everyone knows, Alfred is Bruce Wayne’s most trusted friend, ally and mentor, a noble guardian and father figure. He is an absolutely critical element in the intricate infrastructure that allows Bruce Wayne to transform himself into Batman. It is an honor to have such an amazingly seasoned and gifted actor as Jeremy taking on the important role of the man who mentors and guides the guarded and nearly impervious façade that encapsulates Bruce Wayne.”

Snyder’s film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. The film also reunites “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The new film is currently being written by Chris Terrio, from a screenplay by David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

The film is set to open worldwide on May 6, 2016, and is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.

The announcement of both Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman sent fans into a tizzy, prompting some overzealous types to sign petitions to have them removed from the iconic roles, so one wonders how this news will be taken. As much fun as I’ve had doing Michael Caine impressions over the last several years, Jeremy Irons seems like he’ll make a fine Alfred, perhaps showing an edge to Batman’s trusted valet that hasn’t been seen in past iterations. As for Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, I’ll admit that I was surprised; not because I can’t picture as a younger Lex Luthor — I totally can — but because I genuinely thought they would be going for a slightly older actor for the alopecia-afflicted villain. That being said, imagining Lex Luthor as Mark Zuckerberg with kryptonite sounds pretty excellent, especially for a modern interpretation of the megalomaniacal Man of Steel menace.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Sets Paul Bettany to Play The Vision

Rumors have been swirling about British actor Paul Bettany ever since news broke that he was signing on to Joss Whedon’s hotly anticipated Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. While Bettany has established himself as the voice of Jarvis, the Samantha to Tony Stark’s Theodore Twombly, many speculated that he would be taking on the menacing mechanical mantle of Ultron, which as we know now is the purview of James Spader. Now, thanks to some sleuthing by the Daily Mail (and confirmed by other outlets), we know that Bettany will be playing The Vision, the iconic android Avenger. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t be more excited by this news.

It’s fitting that The Vision is a part of Joss Whedon’s sprawling sequel, especially given the hero’s ties to Ultron. Originally created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Comics, the Vision as we know him today rose to prominence in comics’ Silver Age thanks to Roy Thomas and John Buscema. Created by Ultron as a weapon against the Avengers, The Vision was imbued with the personality of the deceased Wonder Man (Simon Williams) and given shape with a cloned body of the original Human Torch. I imagine Whedon’s version of the Vision’s origin will be a bit less esoteric, but here’s hoping that he’ll still wind up getting together with Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. The Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

At long last, Bettany will get to be more than a glorified Siri for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. That isn’t to diminish the excellent work he did as Jarvis, but rather to express how unreasonably excited I am that one of my favorite Avengers will be making his way to the big screen. Given that production is starting next month, there’s still plenty of time to rewrite the post-credit sequence to have Bettany’s Vision interacting with the Tupac Coachella hologram. Virtual shawarma, anyone?

CW’s THE FLASH Pilot Casts Its Nora Allen

According to a report at Deadline, the pilot for the CW’s The Flash has added another crucial cast member. Michelle Harrison (the CW’s Emily Owens, MD) has been added to the cast of this latest live-action incarnation of the Fastest Man Alive, playing the guest starring/recurring role of Barry’s mother, Nora Allen. She joins Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne (The Reverse Flash?), Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, and original TV Flash John Wesley Shipp in a mystery role.

Although the story says that Harrison will be a recurring role, in the more recent modern comics, Barry Allen gets into forensic science to to try to figure out who murdered his mother Nora when he was a little boy. His father is accused of the crime and incarcerated for it, but Barry never believes his father was the culprit, and spends the rest of his adult life trying to figure out who it was that killed his mother. It is possible of course that the television version won’t go with the idea of Barry’s mother having been killed, but more likely her recurring role will be seen through the use of flashbacks.

GOTHAM Casts Its Final Two Series Regulars

With production about to begin on Fox’s highly anticipated Jim Gordon origin story, Gotham is hard at work casting its remaining series regular roles, and today the network announced the final two additions to the series.

1) Touch’s David Mazouz has been cast as a young Bruce Wayne, thus confirming once and for all the character will exist in the series and that he will be around for more than just the pilot. “Sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.”

2) Freshman actress Camren Bicondova will play a teenage orphan version of Selina Kyle who “is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.”

As far as Selina goes, considering pilot director Danny Canon handled similar themes with the introduction of certain characters in the pilot of The CW’s Nikita, it’s reassuring to know he’s working on (at least) the first episode of this series.

So not only do we now have confirmation of a young Bruce Wayne, but also that of a young Selina Kyle. Add to that Jada Pinkett Smith, Donal Logue, Ben McKenzie, and the confirmed inclusion of The Penguin and Alfred (among others), and it really seems whatever the plan is for Gotham, it’s going to always remember its roots as a comic book show…. something DC has a proven track record of doing quite well.

Toby Kebbell Will Be Doctor Doom

Last month, word arrived that 20th Century Fox was zeroing in on the likely candidate to play Victor Von Doom, the man who will be the primary nemesis for the new breed of heroes in Josh Trank’s new take on the Fantastic Four comics. According to Variety we have a winner, in the shape of Toby Kebbell.

With Trank set to kick off shooting soon, the casting side has been falling into place quickly. Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell are aboard as the main heroes Reed “Mr. Fantastic” Richards, Sue “Invisible Girl” Storm, Johnny “Human Torch” Storm and Ben “The Thing” Grimm.”

Kebbell had been up against Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Riley and Eddie Redmayne for the role of Doctor Doom the masked villain hailing from the fictional nation of Latveria. He’s certainly on Fox’s radar thanks to a role in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and has been at work on Warcraft for director Duncan Jones. While Variety’s story cautions that no deal is in place yet, it would appear to be a matter of hammering out the final details. Assuming everything is figured out, Kebbell and co will be on screens from June 18 next year.

Confirmed: Marvel’s Netflix Shows Will Be Part of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Because not even news of a Justice League movie will slow them down, the Marvel camp has dropped a very reassuring tidbit about their upcoming slate of Netflix shows, currently being dubbed the “Defenders Saga” among fans. One of the biggest questions surrounding the upcoming series is: Is it part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Today, we get an answer, thanks to Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, who recently guested on Kevin Smith‘s Fat Man on Batman podcast and said, yes, they’re part of the MCU: “There will be some inter-connectivity, much like the movies. They will exist within the cinematic universe again, so this is all the same world as S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers.”

In regards to the tone of the series, Quesada added, “Although these are superhero stories, this is different now. This is the street level… this is the street level noir side of the Marvel Universe. Something that you haven’t really, really seen in any of our Marvel movies. And probably more ground level, than I think you’ve seen. This is not like us doing Batman, Dark Knight or any of that stuff. This is very Marvel doing street level superheroes.”

Considering one of the major things that has always separated Marvel and DC is Marvel’s push for more grounded heroes rather than myth-building ones like Superman and Batman, this makes complete sense and really ups the excitement level for the first series in the run, Daredevil. There’s still no word on the time period of the series, which is something that’s been up for debate, as the Hell’s Kitchen of today is not what it was when these comic book series were originally conceived.

Daredevil is slated to hit Netflix sometime in 2015.

ABC Renews AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., Green-Lights AGENT CARTER

It’s been a long road for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. When it first came on the scene last September, it was met with an initially mixed reaction. But, as with many projects that contain the Whedon name, over time, the Marvel television experiment become something really special. As we got deeper into the psychological trauma happening with Coulson and his cheating of death after The Avengers, the more interesting the character became to watch, especially as he led his team of agents that couldn’t be more different.

And now we can finally say, officially: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is coming back for a second season!

No, we’re not playing some evil Hydra trick on you, Team Coulson isn’t done just yet, and thank God — have you guys seen the craziness that’s happening out there? I mean, there’s man-things floating around somewhere, you guys. Man-Things!

But that’s not all!

So, remember that Agent Carter show that’s been floating around the ether? You know, the potential limited series event that would star Hayley Atwell as her infamous Captain America: The First Avenger character? Well, ABC has given it the official green light for next season as well. The exact premiere date of the series is currently TBD, but rumor is it will serve as a filler for the break Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will take between the fall and spring of next season.

Channing Tatum Confirmed as Gambit by X-MEN Producer Lauren Shuler Donner

Even though it’s been rumored for quite some time, it looks like producer Lauren Shuler Donner, while speaking with Total Film magazine at the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past, has confirmed that the Cajun mutant Gambit will indeed be appearing on the big screen soon, tossing kinetically charged playing cards at bad guys, and that the part will by played by  none other than Channing Tatum.

Just how and where we will be seeing the character of Gambit is still the question though. Earlier reports were that Tatum would get a solo movie as Remy LeBeau, but that doesn’t seem too likely at this point. Far more likely is Channing Tatum being part of the X-Men proper in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, which is scheduled to come out in May 2016. Director Bryan Singer has already hinted that among the new mutants joining the team in Apocalypse would probably be Nightcrawler and Gambit, joining the already confirmed children of the atom, Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm. I suppose if audiences really take to this new version of the character, a spin-off movie might be possible somewhere down the line. Having a star like Tatum though would only help increase the visibility of X-Men: Apocalypse, especially with female audiences.

The character of Gambit was already confirmed to be around during the 1980′s (which is where we assume the bulk of X-Men Origins: Wolverine took place, which yes, is still in continuity regardless of whether or not it sucks) which is when X-Men: Apocalypse will also be set. Sadly, this probably precludes a romance with longtime X-Men love interest Rogue, I’m afraid, at least if the timeline is to be adhered to. Sorry all you Rogue and Gambit shippers. Having Tatum as Gambit would be a far smarter casting choice for the character, if only because Tatum has seen his star power rising steadily these past few years (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street) while the previous Gambit, Taylor Kitsch, has headline a strong of high profile box office flops like John Carter and Battleship. If indeed the character is going to be included, then the smart money’s on Tatum.

http://www.nerdist.com/2014/05/is-charlie-cox-marvels-daredevil/

Charlie Cox is Marvel’s Daredevil

UPDATE: Variety has confirmed this as true. Charlie Cox will play Daredevil in the upcoming series.

The Marvel news train has apparently become the “villain” from Tony Scott’s Unstoppable as it continues to barrel down the tracks of internet insanity. It began last Friday when it was announced that Edgar Wright had left the Ant-Man film he’d been developing for nearly eight years, an announcement that was later followed up with rumors that the director left the project over various re-writes that were made to the original script created with Joe Cornish. The train then rolled through Saturday when it was revealed Drew Goddard was stepping down from the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Daredevil to focus his attention on Sony’s Sinister Six. In his place, fellow Whedon-school alum Steven S. DeKnight (Spartacus) took over as showrunner. Now, in relation to Daredevil, a new rumor comes courtesy of the folks over at Latino-Review.

There’s been much speculation over who would play the man without fear, the most high-profile name in the mix being Michael C. Hall, who’s on the hunt for a new project now that Dexter is over. Today, the outlet reports Boardwalk Empire’s Charlie Cox is the frontrunner to play the blind superhero. El Mayimbe does state in his report the news is currently unconfirmed but comes from a trustworthy enough source to post.

Without knowing the tone Marvel Television is going for, it’s hard to say if Cox is the right choice for the part, but he definitely fits the Marvel bill of not having a major break-out roll yet, despite having an extensive body of work. Honestly, at this point, when it comes to casting we should just let Marvel do its thing because they haven’t screwed up once so far on that front.

Josh Brolin to Play Thanos in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Has Marvel found its Mad Titan? Latino Review is reporting and Variety has confirmed that No Country For Old Men star Josh Brolin has been cast as Thanos for Guardians of the Galaxy.

According to the report, Thanos – teased in the first Avengers post-credits sequence – has a third-act scene involving a rocket throne. I don’t know what that is, but it sounds like just the kind of grandiose thing that a purple god obsessed with death might tool around on.

Brolin, last seen in Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy, would make for an interesting Thanos. He’s definitely got the bass in his voice as well as enough swagger to bring to the part should any motion capture be needed. If the rumor is true, this would make two big screen comic roles for Brolin in 2014 alongside his part as Dwight in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from director Robert Rodriguez.

At this point, we’ve all be assuming that Thanos will be the villain of Avengers 3, which can’t be too far off the mark given how Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The First Avenger have teased cosmic artifacts that could potentially end up on a hypothetical Infinity Gauntlet. For those of you not familiar with that particular piece of reality-altering bling, the Gauntlet is a glove containing six gems which give the wearer control of all creation. During the mid-90s Infinity Gauntlet event, Thanos, set on impressing the personification of Death, set out to collect the Infinity Gems and wipe out have of creation for his skeletal love.

Since the Avengers sting, we haven’t seen anything from the character and footage for Guardians of the Galaxy up to this point have positioned Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser as the main heavy in that film (although Marvel has confirmed Thanos would make an appearance in some way). With this casting Thanos could be making himself known in a bigger way throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.

Rosario Dawson Cast in Netflix’s DAREDEVIL

The most dangerous place for a woman to be in the Marvel Universe is next to Matt Murdock, a/k/a Daredevil. I’m betting whatever character Rosario Dawson is playing in the upcoming Netflix series will find that out firsthand.

The Sin City and Trance actress has joined the cast of the Netflix original series as “dedicated young woman whose quest to heal the wounds of Hell’s Kitchen brings Matt Murdock unexpectedly crashing into her life, while her own journey forever alters the course of his battle against the injustices of this broken city.”

Whether this is an existing character or an original one remains to be seen. But here’s my hope: she’s in some way, shape, or form Elektra. Never mind that the character is Greek – Dawson has the physicality for the role and I’d love it if she was playing something more than one of Matt’s doomed girlfriends*, and given that Marvel has the rights for the character back after she was treated so… roughly at Fox, this would be a great way to reintroduce her to audiences.

Who knows? She could also be private eye Dakota North, or Matt’s ex-wife Mia. Here’s hoping she’s not Karen Page, though.

Dawson joins Charlie Cox, who’s playing Daredevil/Matt Murdock, and Vincent D’Onofrio, who’s taking on the role of Wilson Fisk a/k/a Kingpin.

From the series’ synopsis:

Marvel’s Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.”

*In order of superhero dudes you don’t want to date (because you will die or your life will be horrible): Daredevil, Wolverine, Batman, and Animal Man. If you realize you’re dating one of these characters, politely excuse yourself, leave immediately, change your name, and move six states away.

The erstwhile Man of Steel is joining the CW hit’s third season in the recurring role of Ray Palmer, aka DC superhero The Atom, TVLine has learned exclusively.

An unparalleled scientist and inventor, Ray will play an unexpected role in the lives of Oliver and (rumored love interest) Felicity as the new owner of Queen Consolidated. Palmer’s plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division will be shrouded in mystery.

In addition to his myriad comic book appearances, Ray/The Atom — who can alter the size of his body as well as Brandon Routh Arrow The Atomother objects — has turned up in numerous animated series, including, most recently, Cartoon Network’s Young Justice. Arrow marks one of the character’s rare live-action incarnations.

Déjà vu watch: Although The Atom isn’t able to fly like Superman, he can simulate flight a la Wonder Woman.

Also joining Arrow this fall — as previously reported by TVLine — are Sin City‘s Devon Aoki (as DC Comics superheroine “Katana”), Karl Yune (as Oliver’s Hong Kong handler/Katana’s husband Maseo Yamashiro), and Peter Stormare (as Count Vertigo).

Routh’s TV credits include NBC’s late, much-missed Chuck, CBS’ short-lived Partners and, more recently, Crackle’s Chosen and Fox’s Enlisted.

Arrow premieres its third season on Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Robbie Amell Joins THE FLASH as Another Justice Leaguer

Recently, we told you that Superman Returns star Brandon Routh and Sin City actress Devon Aoki had joined the cast of CW hit series Arrow as Atom and Katana, respectively. But what’s happening on the casting front of Arrow new-born sibling spin-off, The Flash? Well, as of this morning, things just got even more intertwined from the familial perspective as The Tomorrow People star – and younger cousin of Arrow lead Stephen Amell – Robbie Amell has officially joined the cast in a recurring role as Ronnie Raymond, a/k/a ½ of Firestorm, the atomic-powered, matter-changing superhero extraordinaire.

According to Deadline, “[Raymond] is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s fiancé who plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen into The Flash.” Currently, there’s no word on the inclusion of Raymond’s Firestorm second half, Martin Stein.

So let’s just get this out of the way because we all know you’re wondering: no, we don’t know if or when Robbie and Stephen will share screen time together, but they have to, right? That’s just too good of an opportunity to pass up. Wouldn’t that make for just the most awesome crossover event? Can anyone else say sweeps?

ARROW Casts Vinnie Jones as Major Supervillain for Season 3

As the title suggests, this post contains spoilers for Arrow’s third season. You have been warned!

In what is probably the most spot-on casting since Patrick Stewart as Professor X, it has been announced that British tough guy actor and former football bruiser Vinnie Jones has been cast to play crime lord Danny “Brick” Brickwell on this season of The CW’s Arrow. Brick will have a three-episode arc in the middle of the season (episodes 10, 11, and 12), following the mid-season premiere episode 9.

In the comics, Brick is a metahuman who has reddish skin that makes him basically impervious to physical harm. In the TV show, even though metahumans are now a thing thanks to The Flash‘s particle accelerator explosion, he’s going to just be a guy who can’t seem to die even though he’s been shot several times. If you think that sounds slightly familiar, than you are thinking correctly; Jones played underworld enforcer Bullet-Tooth Tony in Guy Ritchie’s 2000 film Snatch. And, of course, there’s that whole thing when Jones played the Juggernaut (bitch) in 2006′s X-Men: The Last Stand.

Brick was introduced into the comics during Green Arrow‘s early 2000s renaissance thanks to writer Judd Winick and artist Phil Hester and was letter used extensively during Andrew Kreisberg’s tenure as writer on the series later in the decade. Kreisberg is, of course, the current Executive Producer and one of the head writers of Arrow, and the character had already been teased back in Season One as a name in Oliver’s now-forgotten book of names of people who failed the city.

Brick is just another in a line of DC characters joining Arrow this year. We’ve already seen Ray Palmer (the Atom) but we’ll eventually see Wildcat, Captain Boomerang, Cupid, Manhunter, and of course, Ra’s al Ghul before the season’s up.

Well, it was only a matter of time.

Having played a younger Charles Xavier for four years now, it was always a question on when James McAvoy would don the bald head of the Professor. That day looks to be today in preparation for X-Men: Apocalypse.

Over at director Bryan Singer's instagram and with the simple caption of "Xavier reborn in process", we see McAvoy being sheared and shaved bald for the first time.

Jon Bernthal Will Be Daredevil's Punisher
Frank Castle is headed to Hell's Kitchen on the Netflix show

http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=44558

When we talked to series star Charlie Cox about the second season of the Marvel/Netflix Daredevil show, he expressed his wishes for what he wanted to see. “I’d like to see Punisher maybe show up, a little bit of Elektra maybe. I wouldn’t mind Black Widow making an appearance, and you can’t think about Daredevil for too long without thinking of Bullseye.” Well, one out of three isn’t bad so far, as Jon Bernthal is showing up as Frank Castle AKA The Punisher.

Bernthal, still best known for The Walking Dead, will play the Marvel favourite, a tough vigilante who has his own ideas about cleaning up crime, no matter how lethal his methods. When he arrives in Hell’s Kitchen, you can bet he’ll butt heads with Matt Murdock.

“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences,” Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television says on Marvel’s site as part of the announcement. “Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.” He’s not wrong about the casting – Bernthal seems like a great choice for the character, inheriting a screen mantle that has been shouldered by Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson in the past.

On the big screen, Bernthal has long proved his versatility, cropping up in movies as diverse as The Wolf Of Wall Street, Grudge Match, Rampart and World Trade Center. He has several films on the way, with We Are Your Friends landing August 28, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl due September 11 and Sicario out September 25. He’ll also be seen in The Accountant, Pilgrimage and Shot Caller.

The degree to which fans of Batman—known as “Batnatics” in circles I’ve just invented—have been waiting for an adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland‘s seminal work of Joker insanity, The Killing Joke, in some visual format for decades. And later this year, the hotly anticipated R-rated animated version will be released. Still, many fans are lamenting that the story never made it to the big screen…but oh wait! It IS coming to the big screen, in July, for one night only, as a Fathom Event! Now fans can openly weep for there are no more worlds to conquer.

Batman: The Killing Joke, directed by Bruce Timm and featuring the voices of the inimitable Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill as Batman and Joker, respectively, will be in theaters for one night only Monday, July 25, at 7:30pm and 10:00pm local time in participating cinemas. That means you could, if you wanted, go see it twice in one night like the young, fresh Batnatic you are. Tickets will go on sale for this event beginning June 17, 2016. That’s a Friday, if you’re also a calendar fanatic. A Calanatic? Nah.

Not only will the feature itself be screened, but as per usual for Fathom, some extras will be shown as well, including a special introduction from Hamill plus a never-before-seen documentary about how he was cast in this project and what the role means to him as an actor and a fan. The event will conclude with a special behind-the-scenes look at how the Joker’s memorable, yet disturbing song and dance number was recreated for this feature. Yes, there’s a sweet song and dance number in this very violent Batman story.

Here’s a New Look at David Haller in the X-MEN TV Spin-Off LEGION

The X-Men movie series is now nine films strong, and is now going to introduce its first television component with the new FX series Legion.  Created by Noah Hawley–best known for his work on Fargo–the new series is about a young man named David Haller, a mutant diagnosed with schizophrenia, who has struggled with mental illness since he was a teenager. According to the official series description, everything changes when he meets the girl of his dreams—a fellow patient—and is confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real. Haller is being played by former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens.

Now, in the Marvel comics, David Haller’s mental illness results in multiple personalities, each with a different mutation. He’s also the son of Professor Charles Xavier, a result of an affair years prior with a woman in Israel, a fact that wasn’t revealed to either David or Charles until adulthood. How much of the series will stick to the comics is unknown, as the X-Men movies diverge more wildly from the comics than their Marvel Cinematic Universe counterparts do, but seeing as they are stressing this is an X-Men spin-off, it seems the family connection to Xavier will come up at some point.

Now creator Noah Hawley has revealed another sneak peek of the show to fans on his Instagram. The picture was taken during a sound mixing session, and shows Dan Stevens as David Haller in what looks like mental institution clothing. It also confirms that the TV version will not be rocking the amazing hair of the comics character. You can check out the pic below…

http://nerdist.com/heres-a-new-look-at-david-haller-in-the-x-men-tv-spin-off-legion/

X-Men film producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed details about the new series to Moviefone–via FlickeringMyth–stating that: “Noah [Hawley] is a genius–he wrote and created and directed the pilot to Legion–and it is a very different sensibility than anything we’ve done with the X-Men movies. Almost, I would say, as radically different as Deadpool was from the mainline X-Men movies. Legion is, again, in a different direction: really character-based, really granular in terms of getting inside the details of the characters. It stands as part of the X-Men universe, but it stands apart from it as well.”

The eight-part first season of Legion is set to debut on FX early next year.

X-Men TV Series Nearing Pilot Order

It looks like Fox's X-Men TV series may become a reality in the very near future.

While no official order has been given just yet, Fox chairman Gary Newman said today at the Television Critics Association press tour that they are awaiting a final draft of the script but expect to issue a pilot order with the next two weeks.

“We’re deep into development on that,” Newman said. “We’re expecting a script shortly. The materials we’ve seen so far have been very, very promising.

“Development across the board this year is a little slower than usual, so we’re not, unfortunately, ready to make an announcement about it, but we’re very encouraged.”

The X-Men drama is being developed by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix. The series does not yet have an official title, but casting is already said to be underway.

Fox has not announced any specific mutants appearing in the new X-Men series, but it is said to focus on a mutant family that joins an underground mutant resistance when anti-mutant legislation is passed into law. The premise sounds similar to the idea behind the original "Days of Future Past" comic book story that inspired the 2014 X-Men: Days of Future Past feature film.

Nix is serving as executive producer, along with Bryan Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Simon Kinberg of the X-Men movie franchise and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
Nix's X-Men drama replaced Hellfire, the proposed series following the Hellfire Club when Fox decided the idea would not work for a television series.

Legion, which was announced alongside Hellfire, is set to debut on FX in February. That series follows David Haller (Dan Stevens), a powerful mutant with multiple personalities.

Noah Hawley (Fargo) will serve as an Executive Producer along with Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Deadpool), Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse, Superman Returns), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Martian), Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones), Jim Chory (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones) and John Cameron (Fargo, The Big Lebowski). Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the Executive Producers of the Emmy and Golden Globe -winning FX limited series Fargo.

X-Men TV Series Gets Official Pilot Order From Fox

It's official, the mutants are coming to television.

Fox has officially given a pilot order to the still untitled X-Men universe television project being produced by 20th TV and Marvel Television. Matt Nix will write and executive produce the pilot. 
The pilot follows two human parents and their mutant child who are forced to go on the run from the government and end up joining an underground mutant network.

This will be the second live-action X-Men project coming to Fox's television network. Legion, from Fargo's Noah Hawley, will debut on FX on Feb. 8.

Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory will executive produce the pilot.

Matt Nix's X-Men project replaced Hellfire, a television show centered on the villainous Hellfire Club. Hellfire was announced alongside Legion but lagged behind in production. Hellfire was eventually abandoned by Marvel and Fox. The studios explained that the project felt too much like a movie to make the jump to a television series format.

Nix's X-Men television series is said to be more directly tied to the X-Men mythology than Legion, which used the character of David Haller as a jumping off point to create its own mini-universe and supporting cast.

Joan Lee, Wife of Marvel Comics Legend Stan Lee, Dies at 93

http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/celebrity/joan-lee-wife-of-marvel-comics-legend-stan-lee-dies-at-93/ar-BBDVAOk?li=BBmkt5R

Joan Lee, the wife of Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, died Thursday in Los Angeles. She was 93.

"I can confirm the sad news that Joan Lee passed away this morning quietly and surrounded by her family," a spokesperson for Stan Lee and his family said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "The family ask that you please give them time to grieve and respect their privacy during this difficult time."

Joan Lee suffered a stroke earlier in the week and was hospitalized, according to sources.

The former British hat model and Lee were married on Dec. 5, 1947, and were by all accounts hopelessly devoted to each other. They had two children: J.C. (Joan Celia), who was born in 1950, and Jan, who died three days after her birth in 1953.

Last year, Lee recounted how he met his wife in a story for The Hollywood Reporter that celebrated his 75th anniversary in comics. After a childhood sweetheart wed another woman, Joan Clayton impulsively married an American soldier during World War II and moved to New York, where she was extremely unhappy. Meanwhile, a cousin of Lee's wanted to set up the struggling writer with a hat model. Lee tells what happened next:
"When I was young, there was one girl I drew; one body and face and hair. It was my idea of what a girl should be. The perfect woman. And when I got out of the Army, somebody, a cousin of mine, knew a model, a hat model at a place called Laden Hats. He said, 'Stan, there's this really pretty girl named Betty. I think you'd like her. She might like you. Why don't you go over and ask her to lunch.' Blah, blah, blah.

"So I went up to this place. Betty didn't answer the door. But Joan answered, and she was the head model. I took one look at her - and she was the girl I had been drawing all my life. And then I heard the English accent. And I'm a nut for English accents! She said, 'May I help you?' And I took a look at her, and I think I said something crazy like, 'I love you.' I don't remember exactly. But anyway, I took her to lunch. I never met Betty, the other girl. I think I proposed to [Joan] at lunch."

In those days, the quickest way to get divorced was to move to Nevada and stay for six weeks to establish residency. Soon after Joan arrived in Reno, Stan received a letter from her addressed to "Jack," and that worried him.

"Now I'm not the smartest guy in world," recalled Lee. "I know my name isn't 'Jack.' And so why did she write 'Dear Jack?' Maybe I better go to Reno and see what's going on. I got there and she was waiting for me. And there's three guys with her. They all look like John Wayne. Big Western guys! Rugged! And I get off the plane fresh from New York with my little pork pie hat and a little scarf and my gloves. And she's with me. I thought, 'I don't have a chance.' Luckily, I had a chance."

A judge granted Joan her divorce and about an hour later, he married her and Lee in a room next door.

The couple returned to New York, where Lee worked at Marvel Comics forerunner Timely/Atlas Comics, a job he initially landed because his cousin Martin Goodman owned the company. Comics were a middling enterprise until Lee and Jack Kirby co-created The Fantastic Four in 1961 (followed by the Hulk, Avengers, Iron Man, X-Men and other characters) and turned the company, renamed Marvel Comics, into a pop culture powerhouse.

In some versions of the origin of the Fantastic Four, Lee credits Joan with inspiring him. He was depressed about his career (Lee had dreams of becoming a serious novelist) and the state of comics (the industry in the 1950s was dominated by stories of war, science fiction and romance, genres he didn't like) and contemplated leaving the business.

"Before you quit," Joan told him, "why don't you write one comic you are proud of?" And thus was born the Fantastic Four.

In 1981, the Lees moved from New York City to California so Stan could work on developing Marvel TV and film projects. Joan did voice work on two 1990s animated Marvel shows, Fantastic Four (as Miss Forbes) and Spider-Man (as Madame Web). She also made a cameo in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse.  

Joan Lee also wrote a 1987 novel, The Pleasure Palace, about a man striving to build the most luxurious ocean liner ever while romancing several women at once. According to her daughter, she had three more unpublished but finished novels at home).
