Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is just over a month away. James Gunn in an interview earlier this month talked about the future of the franchise, simply stating that, yeah, Marvel will most likely want to do another one of these. This is one of their most successful franchises. Well, this news got people stoked, and got them speculating about where the franchise could go and when it will be released. Whoa, wait a minute…James Gunn saw something off here. Why are they talking about the third movie when the second one hasn’t even come out yet??? (more…)
Actor Daniel Kaluuya’s star is increasingly rising. While well known in the UK for his roles like Skins, Doctor Who, and many others, he’s slowly becoming a big player here across the pond. With roles in Black Mirror, Kick-Ass 2, and Sicario, he’s becoming a familiar face. Of course, he played the lead in the critically (and commercially) acclaimed horror/suspense movie Get Out, which has made more than $136 million worldwide. His next movie is going to be a big one, as he will be in Marvel’s Phase 3 movie, Black Panther and King T’Challa’s second-in-command, W’Kabi.
Well, this is unexpected. Sony Pictures has randomly announced a Spider-Man spin-off film focusing on the villain Venom for an Oct 2018 release. Umm, wut, lol? (more…)
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most successful Marvel films ever made, besides the Avengers films themselves, so it comes as no surprise that a sequel was immediately put into the works. Guardians was a surprise to many, it was a lesser known property that kind of came out of left field and took everyone by surprise by how good it was. A lot of how good it was is due to the film’s director, James Gunn, who is also helming the upcoming sequel. It’s just been confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is officially happening, which is good news for fans of the franchise. But Gunn has spoken out and said he might not be the one directing the film. (more…)
For all the crude humour that was clearly directed at adults, Guardians of the Galaxy had all the right ingredients to be a hit for all the family. As well as the hotly anticipated sequel due for release later on this year, the movie inspired a spinoff series on the kids’ channel Disney XD starring its two most kid-friendly characters, Rocket and Groot. As is often the way with these things, the cartoon was just as popular with adults as with children. It was announced last year at Comic Con that that show would extend to a 12-part web series.

FOX has won big recently with two slam dunks, Deadpool and now Logan, both of which are rated R. The R rating marks a heavy departure from past superhero films, allowing for a more mature shift in tone, something which audiences are clearly hungry for. So with the success of these films, it is only natural to ask whether other studios will follow suit and release R rated superhero films as well. DC has hinted they might be interested. (more…)
The entertainment industry right now is positively inudated with superhero movies and TV shows. But if you weren’t familiar with the stories already, you wouldn’t necessarily recognise some of the latest releases as a part of the genre. While the main characters, for the most part, have the distinctive powers – whether through supernatural means or through feats of incredible technology – that make them so special, they increasingly bend the rules that fans have come to expect. Most noteably, a lot of heroes are deciding against wearing the iconic costumes that, for much of their careers so far, have defined them. (more…)
With less than 2 months remaining, fever is growing for Marvel’s next Phase 3 movie, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2. The sequel to the surprise blockbuster is expected to be even bigger, funnier, and have even more classic songs than the first one. Tonight, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt showed up to debut the third trailer for the upcoming film.
Marvel Editor and Chief Axel Alonso tweeted out a new image today titled Batch H. The entire image, which you can see after the jump, quickly brings to mind that quote from Jurassic Park: Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should. We’ll leave that question for you to decide, but it could be a fascinatingly fun new character if done well. (more…)
The ongoing LMD story-line in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is finally coming to an end leaving fans of the show asking what’s next? Well, not wanting to disappoint, ABC’s hit Marvel property teased the return of a fan-favorite original cast member everyone thought would never be seen again! Of course, this being a comic book-based television show, nobody really stays dead or lost in another reality forever. Thanks to Marvel’s use of creative writing, it looks like “you know who” will be making a return to the show when it kicks off its upcoming Agents of Hydra arc. Warning: SPOILERS ahead!
