Ever since Marvel (thankfully) regained the rights to include their endlessly popular Spiderfella in the ever-expanding MCU films, speculation has run rampant as to who may be behind the webs. Outside of who would be playing the iconic web-head, there’s also been a lot of hubbub over which of the many iterations of Spider-Man would be appearing in Marvel’s films. Of course now that we know that it will be an apparently young Peter Parker behind the mask, the only thing we have left to ponder is the identity of the young new movie hero. Today, as if the casting Gods heard our pleas for answers, a second young actor has been brought forward as a potential contender for the role. (more…)

Director Bryan Singer dropped the bomb that at least three people have been waiting to hear, that we’ll see Jubilation Lee in the upcoming sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, titled X-Men: Apocalypse played by newcomer Lana Condor!  No word yet on whether she’ll be a principal cast member, or just shooting stuff in the background with her laser pop rocks in full Anime form.  Of course given that production starts next month, we’re guessing she is probably going to be Sophie Turner’s roommate or something.  Check it out, nerds – we’re going to do something very few news outlets have tried in the past, we are going to defend Jubilee.

There’s been no shortage of acting talent across the nearly 50 year history of the Star Trek franchise, and the rebooted Star Trek movie series has been no exception. After Eric Bana took on the Romulan Nero in 2009’s Star Trek, and Benedict Cumberbatch stepped into the role of the genetically enhanced John Harrison Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness, it looks like Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise will face their most fearsome foe yet in the upcoming Star Trek 3 directed by Justin Lin. Although the villains in the two J.J. Abrams‘ films haven’t been their strongest components, you’re going to be keeping your fingers crossed when the Summer of 2016 rolls around, and Idris Elba makes his Trek debut. (more…)

I remember my first reaction to hearing that Arnold Schwarzenegger was starring in a new Zombie movie was best summed up as, “Meah?” I was expecting the standard zombie action flick with lots of guns, guts, and standard Arnold action film one liners. What I didn’t know at the time was that Maggie was on the 2011 Blacklist for screen-plays submitted, but un-produced that year. That changes everything, and you can absolutely see it in this new trailer. (more…)

Captain Marvel

It has been rumored for quite some time that the Carol Danvers incarnation of Captain Marvel would be hitting the big screen prior to absolutely destroying the box office with her own solo movie when it is released on July 6, 2018.  For the most part, rumors have had Danvers playing a part in Avengers: Age of Ultron, albeit in a cameo capacity.  AoU writer/director Joss Whedon has teased fans off and on throughout the production of the Avengers sequel and if the rumors are true, those teases may actually lead to something much more substantial.  Word around the campfire is that Marvel has found their Carol Danvers and audiences will indeed meet her during the events of Age of Ultron.  There may be spoilers ahead.  You’ve been warned.

Zoolander is one of the guilty pleasure movies that sneaks up on you. It is so outrageous, stupid, and gut busting funny that if I find it while channel surfing, that afternoon is shot to hell. Ben Stiller was recently making the publicity rounds for Noah Baumbach‘s While We’re Young and when asked about Zoolander 2 had some insight on why it took so long for Zoolander 2 to get off the ground.

Marvel Looking at Legitimate Teens as Spider-Man

Amazing-Spider-Man-2-webslinging

Every kid wants to grow up to be Spider-Man, and maybe that has something to do with the fact that you don’t have to be all the way grown-up to be Spider-Man since his great power took hold of him while he was still in high school. On screen though, Tobey Maguire was already 27 when his first Spider-Man movie was released in 2002, while Andrew Garfield was almost 30 years old by the time that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was filming in 2013. So now, as Marvel Studios and Sony are looking to re-cast once again, producers look to be making the shrewd move to set the next film apart by casting an actual teenager for the role. (more…)

Marvel Studios announced via Badass Digest that Anthony and Joe Russo have signed on to direct Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2.  We were prepared.  We knew this day would come.  Remember your training, people!  This of course means that Joss Whedon will bow out after Age of Ultron.  Yes, this is happening but worries not nerds, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are in good hands!  The Russo Brothers are about to begin production on Captain America: Civil War, a series which has its own team-up element.  How will they make their mark on the Avengers films?  Let’s do a little homework and place our bets, shall we?
