Gotham

Superheroes are all over television right now, from the gritty MCU dramas on Netflix to the full-fledged Arrowverse on The CW. But not everyone is convinced they belong there. Speaking at the Edinburgh Television Festival this week, writer/director Bruno Heller has said he “[doesn’t] think superheroes work very well on TV.” Which might not be all that notable, except that Heller is himself the showrunner of a superhero TV series, Fox’s GothamRead More »

Rumor: ‘The Flash’ Villain Will Be the Rogues

Flash Movie Villain / Ezra Miller as The Flash in Justice League

Warner Bros.’ The Flash is assembling quite a team of good guys, including Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (a.k.a. Cyborg). But a superhero movie is nothing without a supervillain. So who’ll be the one to threaten the Scarlet Speedster in his solo movie? As it turns out, the answer may be no one baddie in particular — because, rumor has it, he’ll be facing off against an entire team of supervillains known as the Rogues.  Read More »

Fantastic Four 2 - Kate Mara - Miles Teller

One of the biggest blockbuster disasters of 2015 was undoubtedly Fantastic Four. The Marvel comic adaptation from 20th Century Fox pulled in nearly $168 million on a budget of $120 million, and it was absolutely slaughtered by critics and fans alike. Despite Josh Trank‘s best efforts, it appears some tampering from the studio to change the original vision for the movie resulted in a huge mess of a movie. But despite that, producer and writer Simon Kinberg still believes a sequel is possible, and at least two of the film’s co-stars are game to return to their roles.

Miles Teller and Kate Mara, who play the would-be couple Reed Richards and Sue Storm, have both expressed that they’d be happy to come back for Fantastic Four 2. But the question is whether or not anyone actually wants to see what happen. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War bloopers 2

Captain America: Civil War was a somber affair, and understandably so — the film rocked the very notion of the Avengers to its very core by pitting hero against hero and friend against friend. It was downright heartbreaking to see Steve and Tony come to blows despite their own best efforts to reach a common ground, and then to see the rest of the Avengers forced to pick sides.

But behind the scenes, it was a whole other story. With the film’s home video release just around the corner, Marvel Studios has released the Civil War blooper reel, and it’s silly, endearing stuff. Captain America may be going through some heavy stuff, but Chris Evans is enjoying the hell out of himself, and Sebastian Stan smiles more in these few minutes than Bucky probably has in the past 70 years. Scarlett Johansson‘s tough action hero schtick gets undermined by faulty equipment, and Robert Downey Jr. just can’t help getting in a snarky remark or two. Anthony MackieJeremy RennerPaul BettanyElizabeth Olsen, and Martin Freeman all make appearances as well.

Captain America 3 Zombie Storyline

Robert Downey Jr. landed a huge paycheck for Captain America: Civil War. The actor, whose contract had expired before the Captain America sequel, was reportedly paid $40 million upfront and a significant back end fee. This enormous payday, however, almost didn’t happen, so directors Anthony and Joe Russo and all involved had to consider other stories to tell. What was another story that was a viable option for the filmmakers? Cap taking on zombies or, as Joe puts it, infected people that are similar to zombies.

Below, learn more about an early Captain America 3 zombie storyline.

Civil War Iron Spider Red Hulk

Captain America: Civil War had plenty going on as it is, with over a dozen superheroes including a couple of big new ones. But it could’ve been even more crowded.
