Bill and Ted

Eventually, we’ll see Bill & Ted 3. There are simply too many people who want it and too many of the principals – including Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves – who are more than willing to do the film for it to disappear. Some Hollywood issues still plague the movie’s development, however, so we don’t know when we’ll see Bill & Ted return to the big screen.

They are, however, coming back soon. An editor at Boom! Studios has dropped a not-so-cryptic tease that they’ll be releasing a new Bill and Ted comic book series in the near future. Check it out below.

UPDATE: Boom has released the first images from the comic as well as the writers/artists and plot description.

fantastic four movie cast killed

Marvel Comics is having a little fun at the expense of the cast and crew of the new Fantastic Four movie. In the new issue of the current Punisher series, #12, there are frames of three Hollywood actors discussing a new movie by a director with the last name “Trang.” They look incredibly similar to Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara. Apparently their friend Michael, who plays a character named Johnny, is running late. And then their building explodes.

Yes, Marvel Comics has killed the cast of Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four movie. Check out the panels below. Read More »

Interstellar comic header

Get a look at the Interstellar comic after the jump. (But be warned there are massive spoilers for Interstellar ahead.)

fantastic four cancellation conspiracy

As fans patiently wait for something, anything official about Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, we start to focus on other things. Like the new origin of Doctor Doom. Or the fact Marvel Comics cancelled all Fantastic Four comics and has been generally touchy with the characters for the last few years.

The prevailing thought was that Marvel Comics canceled the FF comics on purpose to spite the people who were making the film. That they didn’t want to help promote the film at all for 20th Century Fox, which will be releasing the new movie and handles the rights. Extreme conspiracy theorists wondered if canceling the comics would hurt the film, Fox would give up the rights, and the Fantastic Four could magically jump into Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Turns out, as you might have expected, that’s 100% not the case. The Chairman and CEO of Fox, Jim Gianopulos, said as much in a recent interview and you can read his quotes about the Fantastic Four cancellation conspiracy below.

LOL: Superhero Movie Calendar 2020-2025

spider-man-avengers

Come on, admit it. Sometime after Marvel Studios announced their full Phase Three schedule, you thought, “What could they do next?” How do you follow up an Infinity War? Especially one that is presented in two parts? And that’s just the one studio. Sony, Fox, and Warner Bros. all have dozens of movies scheduled for release in the next five or six years. You can look at the entire schedule at this link.

Many sites made really nice infographics to visualize all of those movies coming out, but one site went a step further. It mapped out movies through 2025 —  none of which, admittedly, are real. Check out a funny superhero movie calendar from 2020 to 2025. Read More »
