Tim Burton‘s Batman movies aren’t exactly what you’d call cheerful, but even he thinks the modern-day superhero could stand to lighten up a little. “Maybe we need to see a happy superhero?” he suggested.
Or maybe he just wants to see the genre change altogether. The filmmaker also criticized the Marvel formula, and predicted that moviegoers would tire of superhero films some day. And yet, all that said, he admits he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of helming another superhero film.

Anyone who has ever read Sandman, the genre-bending comic written by Neil Gaiman, has probably thought about the idea of Tom Hiddleston as Morpheus, the title character and personification of Dream.

But “Hiddleston is still out there,” as Gaiman said when giving a semi-annual update on the project. Read More »

The Sony hack has taught us many things. On the movie side, it has taught us that Sony really does care about Spider-Man. They might not know what to do with him but there’s no doubt everyone is looking at every possible option for the character. You’ve probably already read a bit about the Sony talks with Marvel to get the character to appear in Captain America: Civil War, or of a possible animated movie by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, or of Marvel’s desire to recast Andrew Garfield. Now a few more details have leaked.

There are a few big characters in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, which acts as one of the first salvos in Marvel’s big Phase Three story set. The primary is obviously Doctor Strange himself, to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. There’s at least one villain, who may be played by Daniel Bruhl, and may or may not be Strange’s early adversary Baron Mordo.

So who plays the Ancient One? We don’t know yet, though there has been speculation that it could potentially be Al Pacino, who recently revealed that he has met with Marvel. Now a new report says there is an Ancient One shortlist of three names, with all the actors already contacted about possibly playing the character. Pacino is not one of them. It’s a fairly diverse group — get an eyeful of the Ancient One shortlist below. Read More »
