Most Marvel fans know to go expect a few curveballs in their movies, (and to ALWAYS stay during the ending credits!), but was a major Ant-Man spoiler revealed by hands other than Marvel’s? LEGO already has a track record of such leaks; such dropping the Iron Man 3 plot twist with Aldrich Killian, and giving us a view of the Vision before his poster was officially revealed. This time the victim of possible spoilage is Ant-Man, by way of an interesting image for an Ant-Man LEGO set. (more…)

It was one of the largest, most hear-warming, and nerdiest acts of altruism ever undertaken. Five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott wanted nothing more than to be Batman, and it looked like he was on his way to licking the disease that had made him so sick so young, the planning began to turn the City of San Francisco in Gotham City, and to turn young Miles into Batkid. You’re porbably aware of the story, it was national news there back in 2013, but a new documentary called Batkid Begins promises to reveal the story behind the story, as the saying goes. After some initial film festival success, Batkid Begins looks to be coming to a theater neat you later this summer. Want to see a trailer? You came to the right place. (more…)

The Crow 4

Almost three decades ago, back in 1989, James O’Barr’s now classic comic book tale of love and vengeance, The Crow, released its first official issue.  Besides being a symbol of the gothic trend that was beginning to pop up across the nation, the story was one that could translate to the big screen and in 1994, director Alex Proyas managed to give audiences a brilliant, if inaccurate, adaptation of O’Barr’s story.  Sometime back, a reboot of The Crow was announced and, after a revolving door of actors had stepped away from the project, Jack Huston was given the role of Eric Draven with Jessica Brown Findley rumored to be stepping into the role of Eric’s fiancé Shelly.  Today, we have news that the movie has found its main villain, Top Dollar, though with a bit of a twist.  If rumors are to be believed, Andrea Riseborough will be playing the big baddie in the upcoming film.

Contrary to popular belief, the first four Transformers movies had scripts. I know, I know, sounds unlikely. It’s like ancient aliens, Nessie and an honest politician, a rumor too impossible to be believed. However, with the notably exception of Revenge of the Fallen, which was mostly plotted through pre-visualization thanks to the 2007-08 Writers Strike, every Transformers movie has begun with a script. Well now they’re going to begin with a team of writers deciding on a story for that script. As per recent reporting, Paramount Pictures has put Akiva Goldsman in charge to oversee a writers room for all upcoming Transformers movies, and some familiar names are amongst the first roster of Transformers’ writing staff.

This information is still strictly resigned to the rumor mill for now, but the Youtube channel The Hashtag Show is reporting that Sony and Marvel are eyeing Matthew McConaughey to play Norman Osborne in their newest Spider-Man installment. The channel isn’t that widely known, but has had a few confirmed leads in the past; including some early Avengers: Age of Ultron spoilers. So while it may not be wise to get your hopes up, you may not want to completely dismiss this news. (more…)

There’s a curious phenomenon occurring with Marvel Comics Merchandise these days. Classic characters are disappearing from classic scenes, characters that just happen to belong to the FOX studio superhero movie portfolio. That’s right, not only did Marvel cancel the Fantastic Four comic, now it seems that the characters FOX owns the movie rights to are now being actively removed from Marvel Merchandise like the shirt above.

What’s the fun of a shared, multi-film universe if you aren’t going to use it? In the case of Marvel Studios, they’ve been very much enjoying the benefits of having characters from one movie series pop up in another. Clark Gregg took Agent Coulson from Iron Man to Thor; Robert Downey Jr. popped up at the end of The Incredible Hulk; and Hayley Atwell is rumored to be turning up as Peggy Carter in a flashback in the upcoming Ant-Man. Of course, nearly everyone from the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far showed up in Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the notable exception of last summer’s space-faring heroes of Guardians of the Galaxy. But you know it’s only a matter of time that they turn up in other places, and Star Lord himself, Chris Pratt, confirmed that he has room in his contract for Marvel adventures outside of Guardians.

For most people that remember the first wave of Turtle Power in the late 80s/early 90s, their way into the show was the animated series based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was an eclectic little show that featured ninjas, mutants, robots, aliens, and got a nation of kids permanently addicted to pizza. For those now grown-up kids, the latest live-action Turtles movie may not have done much to encourage fond memories of the franchise they loved so much, but maybe what it lacked were some old familiar faces, at least on the dark side of things. In the age old sequel axiom that more is better, especially when we’re talking about villains, it looks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is getting another bad guy to the mix. (more…)
