Bryan Singer once again has the unenviable task of casting two of Marvel’s most iconic X-Men. Back in 2000, the director brought in Famke Janssen and James Marsden to play Jean Grey and Cyclops, rolls that extended through and including this year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now that the series is continuing on with the X-Men: First Class versions of the characters in X-Men Apocalypse, he has to cast those two crucial roles again.
One report says three actors and three actresses are on Singer’s short list for each role. Among them? Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld. Read more about the X-Men Apocalypse Cyclops and Jean Grey casting below. Read More »

Marvel announced last week that Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl would be joining Captain America: Civil War. That in itself is big news, because Brühl is a great actor and we’re always happy to see him. But what really got fans buzzing was Marvel’s decision not to offer any hints whatsoever abut his role. That opened the door to a whole lot of guesses, some more out there than others, and we got to wondering whether Marvel might be keeping his character a secret for a reason.
Officially, the studio has said only that Brühl would appear in Captain America: Civil War and that they’re excited about his “ability to deliver intense, nuanced performances.” However, the trades soon reported that Brühl would be playing a villain (though maybe not the main villain), and that he could return in Doctor Strange as the big bad for that film. So who is Daniel Bruhl playing in Captain America: Civil War, really? Hit the jump for our best guesses.

Captain America: Civil War already has a pretty impressive cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman and now another name has been added. Joe and Anthony Russo have cast Daniel Brühl, the star of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Ron Howard’s Rush, in a mystery role. (Early reports say he’s a villain.) And interestingly, one report says he could end up being the main bad guy in Doctor Strange, which could considerably narrow down options for his role.

Dwayne Johnson recently tweeted a photo of him reading the script for his next movie. He described it as a “big action comedy” and said his co-star would soon be revealed. That’s now happened. It’s none other than Kevin Hart, the current go-to second lead in big comedies (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Get Hard, The Wedding Ringer). They’ll co-star in a buddy action comedy called Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers). Read More »
A new entry into the Rocky series has finally begun moving forward. Creed, directed by and starring the Fruitvale Station team of Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan, has been in-development for over a year. It’ll star Jordan as the grandson of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), the nemesis/friend of Rocky Balboa who died in Rocky IV. He’s an up and coming boxer and asks his dad’s old friend Rocky (Sylvester Stallone, reprising his iconic role) for help.
Now it seems like the film is aiming at a January start date and two champion boxers are about to sign on. Read more about the Rocky spin-off, Creed, below. Read More »
