Much of the Internet exploded with joy when they heard that fan favorite Nathan Fillion was going to be doing a little cameo in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Since the moment James Gunn signed on to Guardians of the Galaxy, folks have wondered if his good friend and regular collaborator Nathan Fillion might find his way into the film. Fillion, of course, has a busy day job as the lead in ABC’s detective series Castle, so anything larger than a cameo in GOTG was unlikely. Wish granted? Rumors have been afoot in the last couple of days that Fillion will have a small but large part to play in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, but if this latest rumor is true, while the role will be small, though not as important to the as previously believed, it will still be quite memorable.

With the success of The Lego Movie, Gravity, the buzz surrounding the upcoming Batman & Superman team up film and the news that we will see a new trilogy from the Harry Potter-verse in the future, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara is surely riding high, but he’s not Marvel Studios high, and that may be something that the exec wants to change. (more…)

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog was judged by yours truly to be the nerdiest musical ever made. If you have not seen it, then look it up…NOW. It’s only about 45 minutes long–I’ll be here when you’re finished.

Aren’t you glad I made you do that? Want more? Of course you do. And while it’s old news that a sequel is in the works, there hasn’t been many updates from the filmmakers. Which is understandable, as Joss and Jed Whedon have been ridiculously busy as of late.

X-Force/X-Men Crossover? Nathan Fillion as Bruce Wayne But Not Batman? Second Clip From Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ One-Shot & More in Another Superhero Movie News Round-Up!

- 08-19-13Comics, Film Posted by Sarah Moran

Superheroes continue to be a hot ticket item, even if their hold on the box office is slipping. And as another summer movie season comes to an end it’s time to look towards what new superhero feature films are coming our way. It’s time for another superhero movie news round-up!


 

xforce

Jeff Wadlow, writer/director of this weekend’s Kick-Ass 2, already has another superhero team-up on the docket – the big screen adaptation of Rob Liefeld‘s X-Force. The popular 90s comic series that gave the world Deadpool is another film in FOX‘s efforts to build their own shared Marvel universe; one populated by mutants and with absolutely no connection whatsoever to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, The Avengers.

While out and about promoting Kick-Ass 2, Wadlow chatted with Den of Geek who invariably asked about X-Force. Here’s what Wadlow had to say,

All I can say is this: I bought X-Force #1 when I was a kid, I’ve read the recent run of Uncanny X-Force which I thought was fantastic, but other than that I just can’t comment on the line-up or anything yet.

Oooh, let’s see, what can I say? Let me put it like this. It will seamlessly exist in the X-Men cinematic universe, but it’s not a sequel.

So no confirmed line-up, but Wadlow did also hint at including team staples: Cable, Domino, and perhaps Sunspot (who’s also appearing X-Men: Days of Future Past). The concept of a shared universe with the X-Men films is, at this point, a no brainer. Marvel and Disney have already proven this to great success, and now DC and Warner Bros. are hoping to continue that trend.

For more read Wadlow’s entire interview with Den of Geek (via CBM).

Speaking of shared universes, you better count on including the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot into FOX’s Marvel universe, as their creative consultant, Mark Millar explains below the cut.
