When Marvel’s deal with Robert Downey Jr. ran out, there were some fears he would not come back for the Avengers sequel, but being the good guy that he is, Bob came back and didn’t leave anyone in the lurch. Now it’s official that Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are back for the three Avatar sequels.
After a lot of hype, hoopla and false starts, the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey has of course finally nailed down a cast, and it’s headed to theaters Valentines Day Weekend 2015. So is Poltergeist apparently.
With so many silly rumors going around about superhero movies, it wouldn’t be hard to make up a rumor about a fictional superhero movie, and it would probably go around pretty quickly before it got debunked. This rumor apparently took a few months to finally be proven it was fake, but thank God it is indeed a hoax.
Other than the JJ Abrams reboot of Star Wars, there’s one other movie that will be the most anticipated flick of 2015: Avengers Age of Ultron. James Spader is on board to play Ultron, and now Thomas Krestschmann is onboard to play Baron Wolfgang von Strucker.
Guillermo Del Toro will soon be filming his next movie, a ghost story called Crimson Peak, and there’s still hope he’ll make a sequel to Pacific Rim one of these days. He also has the FX series The Strain coming this July.
Chris Pine has won the lottery by winning the role of Captain Kirk, which he can play for the rest of his life if he wants to. Has he successfully reinvented Jack Ryan?
Marvel’s Ant Man, which Edgar Wright will be directing for a 2015 release, has been coming together quickly. The long rumored casting of Paul Rudd in the title role has been confirmed, and now another Hollywood A-lister is coming aboard, namely Michael Douglas.
There’s a lot going on in the world of superheroes, and in the next two years we will have Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers 2, Ant-Man, the Daredevil Netflix series, the Fox Gotham series, Batman Vs Superman, and much more. Now several interesting rumors have hit the net that may be true, or they could be complete bullsh*t, so let’s take a look at the reports and see if we can shift the nonsense from the possible truth.
It won’t be long before the next installment of Star Wars goes into production, and as usual, the net is going wild with all kinds of gossip and stories. Nothing’s confirmed at the moment, but we have the feeling official reports will be announced very soon. In the meantime, here are the latest rumors that have been flooding the net.
You know the economy’s in trouble when the adult industry is struggling. In fact, a Napster style crisis in porno had been an accident waiting to happen for a long time, and when fans of x-rated entertainment didn’t want to pay for it anymore, the world of porn took a big hit.
Not only are comic books thriving on the big screen, but they’re going strong on the small screen as well. Besides SHIELD, Arrow, and the upcoming Marvel Netflix series like Daredevil and Iron Fist, there is also a Batman origin series in the works, Gotham.
If anyone has been out of touch with the gaming world since the eighties, they’d probably laugh at the fact that there are actual game screenwriters in this day and age, let along great ones. In fact, some of the biggest writers in the business, like David Goyer (The Dark Knight), have written for games, and the storytelling has gotten much more sophisticated in recent times.
Ron Moore is best known to geeks as the man who reinvented Battlestar Galactica, turning it into one of the most acclaimed sci-fi shows in history. He’s finally back with a new creation, Helix, which has a similar plotline to The Thing. (In fact, Moore was going to remake The Thing as a mini-series.)
Just as what we’ve called The Console Wars had a surprise ending, the big box office race of 2013 also had an interesting twist as well. Not so much a surprise ending really, but another big movie has unseated Iron Man 3 as the box office champ of 2013.
It shouldn’t come as any big surprise that concert tours are bigger than ever. Yes, the economy’s still not in great shape and we need to cut down spending wherever we can, but with so many people not buying music, touring is the only way bands can survive these days.
These days, Marvel is practically everywhere you look, especially at the movies and on TV. Now Marvel’s going on tour with The Marvel Experience.
We’re barely into the new year and already there’s buzz about Comic-Con, which hits the San Diego Convention Center on July 24, and runs through the 27th. But the current buzz right now is the fact that there will no longer be four day passes.
The last several years have been a remarkable time for genre TV with shows like Revolution, SHIELD, and Under the Dome. Revolution especially came on strong, but later in the year it faltered after going on a brief hiatus. So now that the show is back, will its audience come back to it as well?
If you love to read, or love to write, the end of bookstores as we know it is a sad development that’s been coming for a long time. And apparently without a big blockbuster like a Fifty Shades of Grey supporting it, the book business continues to be in trouble.
You knew this was coming…it was pretty much a given that there would be Star Wars modifications made to Disneyland considering they now own the franchise, and now those plans are apparently coming to pass.
