Daniel Craig Returning as James Bond

Daniel Craig has a love-hate relationship with James Bond. Recently the actor reiterated how much he loves playing 007, despite previous famous remarks indicating that he’d rather slash his wrists than consider starring in another James Bond movie while on the press tour for Spectre. Since then, there have been (false) rumors of Craig turning down anywhere from $100 million to $150 million to reprise his role.

Despite rumblings of other contenders like Tom Hiddleston being mentioned, producers still have Daniel Craig as their top choice to return to Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Now it sounds like they may have finally convinced him to return, at least if a new rumor is to be believed. Read More »

batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

michael keaton may play dumbo villain

You either win an Oscar for playing a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself play the villain.

That seems to be Michael Keaton‘s career trajectory at least, potentially following up his villainous turn as Vulture in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming with a role as the villain in Tim Burton‘s live-action remake of Disney’s Dumbo.

Why Sean Gunn Plays Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy

Bradley Cooper provides the voice for the brash and reckless Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. However, unlike actors such as Andy Serkis, he doesn’t actually work on set to do any motion capture work to bring the anthropomorphic raccoon to life. Instead, it’s James Gunn‘s brother Sean Gunn (who also plays the Ravager named Kraglin) who provides a point of reference for Rocket Raccoon on screen, appearing in a green screen colored unitard. But why?

James Gunn recently held another one of his informative Facebook Live streaming sessions where he answered fan questions. When one asked if the director would ever use Bradley Cooper on set during production, he explained why he doesn’t do that by default.

Find out why Sean Gunn plays Rocket Raccoon on set after the jump. Read More »

Stan Lee cameo in Avengers Infinity War

A Marvel movie, even one that is produced outside of Marvel Studios, just wouldn’t feel complete without a cameo from comic creator Stan Lee. He’s a good luck charm, and his appearance is expected in pretty much every Marvel movie (though he hasn’t actually appeared in all of them). And it turns out, Stan Lee may have recently filmed a cameo for a Marvel Studios project coming much further down the line.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who plays Gamora’s troublesome sister Nebula, recently posted a picture to Instagram featuring her standing on a studio backlot with none other than Stan Lee. Furthermore, Karen Gillan just so happens to be wearing her Nebula make-up. Since Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting in Atlanta (as well as Edinburgh, Scotland), many have assumed that Stan Lee recently shot his Infinity War cameo, but we’re not so sure that’s the case.

philip marlowe movie

Liam Neeson has signed up to play detective Phillip Marlowe in a film hailing from Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Monahan (The Departed). The project, titled Marlowe, is based on Benjamin Black‘s “The Black-Eyed Blonde.” Some incredible actors, including Eliot Gould (The Long Good-Bye), Humphrey Bogart (The Big Sleep), James Garner (Marlowe), and Robert Mitchum (Farewell, My Lovely), have played Raymond Chandler‘s famous P.I. in the past, and Neeson’s name should fit comfortably right alongside those towering names.

Below, learn more about the new Philip Marlowe movie.

The Expendables franchise

An Expendables 4 was scheduled to close out the series next year, but it might have to move forward without its star, Sylvester Stallone. The actor, who directed the first film in the series, has left the franchise over creative differences. Stallone may have been offered more than $20 million to play Barney Ross again – his upfront biggest paycheck to date – but disagreements with Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner led to his departure.

Below, learn more about why Stallone is finished with the series.

Now, another character who first appeared in the original ’60s series will stop by to say hello…and he’ll be played by Rainn Wilson.
