In a Marvel film, you can always count on a few things. It’s going to be entertaining as hell, and there will no doubt be a Stan Lee cameo. Considered the godfather of Marvel (and comic books in general), Stan Lee is responsible for giving us most of the characters we hold dear to our hearts. Although the 94-year-old has since retired from his position at Marvel, he almost always has made cameos in the films based on his properties.

With two big hits already this year with Split and Get Out, no one is going to doubt the capacity of Blumhouse to crank out horror hits. Blumhouse is now a big name in horror, but no one has more name cache in the genre than Stephen King, whose work is in the midst of a kind of Hollywood renaissance right now with the pending release of The Dark Tower and It  later this year. Combining King and Blumhouse seems like common sense, which is why it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that their forces are about to be combined on a new version of Firestarter (more…)

We really haven’t heard much from Patty JenkinsWonder Woman since the trailer a few weeks ago, but last night Warner Bros. dropped a couple new TV spots to help tide us over until the Guardians of the Galaxy hub-bub dies down. Seriously, why bother trying to be heard in all that wonderful Marvel madness, it would be a waste of good money. Now when May 8th hits, expect the Wonder Woman marketing floodgates to open. Until then, we might get a few dribs and drabs and even those look very promising, Patty Jenkins should deliver quite the DC movie, perhaps the best to date. (more…)

Even though there’s already one incarnation of the Flash is still racing around multiple universes on the CW, DC is no stranger to the concept of simultaneous dimensions and, as such, are creating a whole new Flash on the big screen. Ezra Miller‘s portrayal of the scarlet speedster has already made a cameo in Justice League, but his own story has so far proven elusive. At the moment, his solo movie is due for release in 2020, but there is a lot left to do in that time before it’ll be ready to go. (more…)

Next May marks the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, exactly one decade following the release of Iron Man and the utterance of the line about the Avengers Initiative in the post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Marvel Studios will mark the occasion with the release of Avengers: Infinity War, the climactic chapter of Marvel’s Phase 3 that brings together nearly all the characters introduced so far in a battle against the Mad Titan Thanos. But this won’t a concluding chapter. For Marvel head Kevin Feige, there are still a lot of surprises ahead.  (more…)

World War Z was a surprising hit at the box office after its troubled production as most everyone was expecting the movie to tank, but it pulled in $540 million world-wide. Interestingly enough, although the sequel was quickly greenlite and scheduled to hit theaters this summer, behind the scenes production issues once again reared their ugly head. Director J.A. Bayona was off to direct the sequel to Jurrasic World leaving Brad Pitt without a director. Word around the Internet today tells us that Pitt talked his old working buddy David Fincher to step in. The pair has worked well together in the past (Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and this new pairing should give us an incredible new Zombie movie. (more…)

For 35 years, boys and girls have been enjoying the adventures of He-Man, a well-spoken and compassionate barbarian on an alien planet who defends the realm from a skeleton man with a magic sword. Yes, Masters of the Universe seems rather silly, but there’s no joking about those legions of fans, all of whom have been patiently waiting for some far off release date for their favourite 80s franchise that seems to only ever get further into the future, not closer. Well, here’s some good news. Masters of the Universe now finally has a firm release date! It’s going to be a Christmas present to all in just two more years.  (more…)

After enjoying box office successes with The Book of Eli and Rogue one, Gary Whitta is a pretty hot screenwriting property right now. His next project is an adaptation of Mark Millar’s six-issue miniseries Starlight. News about the Sci-fi project has been scarce up to now, but rumours about FOX’s favourite to play the lead have begun to circulate, and let’s just say that lead character Duke McQueen’s day is going to get off to a Rocky start… (more…)

The Lion King remains one of the most profitable and beloved of Disney‘s animated classics, the total package of a great voice cast, great music, and a story with universal appeal. Jon Favreau has his work cut out for him adapting The Lion King for his photorealistic remake, perhaps it’s even more of a challenge that the director’s work on The Jungle Book, given that there are a lot of people out there that grew up with the tale of Simba and his birth, exile and return as the king of the Pride. Well, Favreau’s now cast two of the movie’s trickiest roles, Timon and Pumbaa.  (more…)

It’s been 17 years since M. Night Shyamalan‘s Unbreakable quietly began building a cult following. The under the radar superhero movie is a classic look at the origins of both the hero and the villain with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson delivering stellar performances as David Dunn and Elijah Price/Mr. Glass. Shyamalan did it again with James McAvoy in Split which connects with Unbreakable… opps… spoiler warning. You can check out Shyamalan’s twitter announcement below. (more…)
