Doctor Strange blacklight poster (header)

As the marketing campaign moves into the home stretch, Marvel’s Doctor Strange is really letting its freak flag fly. The latest promos have really played up the trippy vibe of the movie, with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige director Scott Derrickson talking up the strong Steve Ditko influence. Now the studio’s released a couple of psychedelic blacklight posters to help expand your mind even further. Check ’em out below, along with a cool new image that also leans into the colorful craziness.   Read More »

Doctor Strange Sneak Preview

We’re less a month out from the release of Doctor Strange and I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling pretty good about this one. Stephen Strange has been one of my favorite comic book characters for a long time, I’ve enjoyed the past work of director Scott Derrickson, and Marvel is still riding high from Captain America: Civil War, a movie that works about as well as a superhero movie possibly can. Plus, Marvel keeps on sending me and my fellow film writer colleagues those checks every month, allowing me to continue surrounding myself with solid gold Ferraris and diamond-encrusted toilet seats and what-not.

I kid, of course. I’m a writer. I live in a cardboard box. How about a new Doctor Strange international trailer to tide us over for the next few weeks?

Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and Director Scott Derrickson on set of Doctor Strange

Yesterday, director Scott Derrickson appeared on Reddit to answer fan questions about his upcoming film, Doctor Strange. While nothing huge was revealed, I thought a few of his answers were worth sharing, including how the film compares with his previous horror films, the running time of the movie, is he consulting with the Russo brothers on Steven Strange’s appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, details on the film’s soundtrack and more.

Luke Cage Family Matters

It’s been over a week since Marvel’s latest series hit Netflix in the form of Luke Cage. Originally Iron Fist was supposed to be the next superhero in the series line-up leading to The Defenders, but after Mike Colter proved to be popular with audiences after his introduction in Jessica Jones, the folks at Marvel decided to shift their plans and give the Hero for Hire his due diligence.

Reviews have been mostly positive on the show, though it’s not perfect. Of course, none of the Marvel shows are, though they do appear to be hitting their mark for the most part. But what if Luke Cage was something different entirely? No, we don’t mean what Quentin Tarantino wanted to do with the characters in a movie he considered making in the 90s. But what if Luke Cage took inspiration from another popular show from that decade. What if Luke Cage was more like Family Matters? Read More »

Don’t Expect to See ‘Blade’ Anytime Soon

Marvel Studios Blade update - Wesley Snipes

Over the years, there’s been speculation, rumors, and stories about how or when we might see Blade return, but rarely is there any news confirming any movement on another Blade film. We heard about Wesley Snipesdesire to play the daywalker again, a possible Netflix series from Marvel Studios, a rumored film about Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey, and, just the other day, Kate Beckinsale said they once discussed bringing Blade into the Underworld franchise. Beckinsale said Marvel had plans for the character, so that’s one of the reasons why it didn’t work out, but according to Marvel President Kevin Feige, there aren’t any immediate plans for the vampire slayer.

Below, get the latest Blade update from Feige.

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be an Origin Story

captain marvel origin

When someone eventually gets around to writing that comprehensive book tracking the history and evolution of the modern superhero movie, there needs to be a chapter dedicated to how audiences have grown alongside comic book adaptations. Once upon a time, these movies had to meet the viewer halfway. Yellow costumes became black leather and so on. These days, audiences are more than willing to just roll with the punches. Movies like Captain America: Civil War and Suicide Squad simply wouldn’t have existed a decade ago.

And because of this shift, origin stories have become something of a dirty word. They’re passé. We can now meet a new Peter Parker and just accept that this guy is Spider-Man and get going. So the news that Captain Marvel will be an origin story is interesting…and it actually says something about the state of the modern superhero movie.

Blade 2 - Wesley Snipes

Over the past couple years, there has been plenty of discussion about the future of Marvel’s vampire hybrid character Blade. Brought to the big screen before the comic book craze truly began with X-Men in 2000, Blade was played by Wesley Snipes for three films, including one directed by Guillermo del Toro and one starring future comic book star Ryan Reynolds. But since then, fans have been hoping for more.

We’ve heard rumblings of Blade 4 with Wesley Snipes coming back as the titular character, a potential Netflix TV series from Marvel Studios (who reacquired the rights to the character in 2013) and even a movie following Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey. Now confirmation of some kind of Marvel project comes from a surprising source: Underworld star Kate Beckinsale.

Find out about the potential Marvel Studios Blade plans after the jump. Read More »
