Black-Panther-film-John-Boyega

There are a ton of heroes in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, more than you can shake a stick at. One of the biggest unknowns so far is how The Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) will fit in. This will be the introduction of the character before he moves on to his own stand alone film in 2018. Luckily for all of us, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Guru Kevin Feige isn’t afraid to talk about how everything fits together. (more…)

This is another story about why it seems like Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment don’t seem to be entirely sure that they know what they’re doing so far as movies based on DC Comics characters are concerned. Today’s installment of “What are they thinking?” brings us back to the subject of Justice League Dark, the proposed adaptation of DC’s premier supernatural super-team by fan favorite filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the project, and now we can reveal why: it’s over. Well, at least for del Toro. In other news, Warners is doing some shuffling, certain comic book projects will be fronted by them, and others will be fronted by New Line. You know, the pressing stuff. (more…)

back-to-the-future

In a bleak movie universe where everything is up for grabs in the form of a remake or a reboot, one movie franchise will remain untouched, and unsullied, and that franchise is Back to the Future. The year 2015 is an important year for BTTF, as it’s the 30th anniversary of the original movie and the setting for the first act of Back to the Future Part II. And although flying cars, self-drying clothes, and hoverboards have yet to come to pass, we, as a culture, are super-obsessed with the 80s and movie sequels in the 3-D. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that co-writer and director Robert Zemeckis, in another act of prescience, made it so that a remake of Back to the Future can’t happen till after he’s dead.

You’ve got to credit director Paul Feig – even in the midst of a fairly good-sized fan backlash about his upcoming, all-female, remake-sequel-kinda-thingy Ghostbusters, he’s still willing to share some behind-the-scenes stuff from on set.  After a few pictures came out recently of principal cast members Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, and Kate McKinnon shooting a couple of scenes, Feig has now given everyone a nice and clear look at the new Ghostbuster uniforms that the gal-pal quartet will be wearing in the film.  Behold the photo:

Clockwork Nazis with a portal to hell and ancient elven princes with grudges to bear and invincible mechanical soldiers couldn’t stop Hellboy. What made Hollywood think it had a chance of stopping the third film in his movie franchise from coming to life? Actor Ron Perlman, who portrays the jolly red giant, posted a photo to Instagram this weekend that gave a definite impression that Hellboy III was slowly coming together.

Perlman and director Guillermo del Toro have been working for years to get Hellboy III off the ground. In spite of critical and commercial success with the Hellboy II: The Golden Army, del Toro stated quite flatly in an interview last year that funding the movie would prove to be problematic, especially given the poor domestic returns at the box office for his masterpiece Pacific Rim.

Here’s what Ron Perlman posted on Instagram last night: (more…)

KingConanGameofThrones

I’ve been jonesin’ to see a King Conan movie since the first Conan movie hit theaters back in 1982, yes, I am that old. “Many wars and feuds did Conan fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon his name and, in time, he became a king by his own hand… And this story shall also be told,” then we caught a glimpse of an aged Conan on the throne. I still have the entire run of Marvel‘s King Conan series in my collection, so when word started making the Internet rounds about The Legend of Conan, I was excited. Now that we all know it is happening sooner rather than later, we’re starting to hear some bits and pieces on what the movie will be about. This time around producer Chris Morgan and the movie’s star Arnold Schwarzenegger clue us in on some possibilities.  (more…)

A few days ago, in the face of uncertainty, the LGBTQ community got the biggest win of all – in The Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage across every state. Love endured and love one.

While we relish in this news and progress as a country, minds are already thinking about the future. And as far as the geek/nerd community is concerned, the question of homesexual representation in the MCU was posed to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during his press tour for Ant-Man.

Here’s what Feige told SlashFilm when asked when fans would finally see an LGBTQ character in future Marvel films:  (more…)
