It’s no secret that while Andrew Garfield took residence in New York City as The Amazing Spider-Man, he wanted our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler to end up meeting with The Avengers in the Marvel cinematic universe. The actor mentioned as much when asked about the possibility at Comic-Con back in 2013, but sadly his time as Spider-Man has come to an end.
But besides a desire to team up with The Avengers, it turns out Andrew Garfield was actively trying to make some kind of crossover happen ever since he took the role of Spidey. Find out more about the Amazing Spider-Man Avengers crossover efforts below! Read More »

We’re just under four months away from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and even with a large chunk of the toys hitting shelves on Friday having leaked online, the Mystery Box surrounding the Star Wars sequel is still very much intact.
However, the latest issue of Empire shines a light on Episode VII, the beginning of a new trilogy, and director J.J. Abrams has confirmed what some fans have long presumed about the new villain. Kylo Ren is not a Sith. More below! Read More »
Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis may be a relatively new talent in Hollywood (he also wrote American Ultra in theaters right now, and Victor Frankenstein coming next year), but he’s been around the industry his entire life. His father is filmmakier John Landis, director of The Blues Brothers, Animal House, and Michael Jackson’s music video for “Thriller.”
That means Landis always had a fascination and draw towards filmmaking, and he always seems to be cooking up ideas for movies, whether they’re original scripts, or just non-commissioned screenplays for properties that Landis wasn’t hired to write, such as his treatment for Ghostbusters 3 or his crazy-long script for a Super Mario Bros. movie. And now we have a Max Landis Lethal Weapon 5 pitch that sounds like it could actually work, even though it will likely never get made. Read More »
A little over a couple weeks ago, a new fan theory about one of the major characters in the Harry Potter series was taking the internet by storm. And it finally made its way to the character’s creator, author J.K. Rowling.
More often than not, Rowling has to debunk wild theories or answer endless questions about whether or not she’ll write an eighth Harry Potter book, but this time she’s fully on board with the fan proposal that posits a Dumbledore as death theory, or at least as a representation of the figure as tied to the story of The Three Brothers.

With the indie sensation Juno, screenwriter Diablo Cody was quickly thrust into the spotlight as a success story of a stripper becoming a Hollywood scribe, making her one of the better known writers of movies in the industry. However, she’s yet to really match the success of her first big screen writing endeavor.
Cody attempted to broaden her horizons a bit by getting behind the camera for the first time with the 2013 movie Paradise, starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer, but the movie was skewered by critics after getting a DirectTV release. And it seems Cody doesn’t have much faith in her directing skills either as she recently said that she likely won’t ever direct another movie. Read More »

Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as the clawed mutant who has driven pretty much the entire X-Men franchise with the exception of X-Men: First Class. So far all we know is that the sequel will have some ties to the Old Man Logan comic book arc, and Patrick Stewart as Professor X will be an integral part of the movie.
But Jackman recently teased a couple more things that fans will be happy to see pop up in the sequel, one of which we haven’t seen in any of the previous X-Men movies, and another is a familiar face. Read More »
When director J.J. Abrams was confirmed to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens, before we even knew what the title for Episode VII was going to be, some fans were a little annoyed at his hiring. Abrams after all, already had a hand in rebooting Star Trek in 2009, and also directed the less-impressive sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. But it turns out Abrams isn’t the only Star Trek talent with hands in both sci-fi cookie jars.
As we know now, Simon Pegg has some kind of minor role in The Force Awakens as an unknown alien, because we saw him suited up on set in the behind the scenes reel that was revealed at Comic-Con. But Abrams has just confirmed that the Simon Pegg Star Wars connection also extends to helping shape the script, being an occasional part of the brain trust who brought ideas and insight into the story as well.
