Wolverine Avengers

Although Hugh Jackman has made it very clear that Logan will be his last movie as Wolverine, he’s not above indulging in some what-ifs. He hedged his bets when asked about a potential Wolverine / Deadpool movie, and now he’s entertaining the hypothetical possibility of a Wolverine / Avengers movie. No, it’s never going to happen — but Jackman admits that he might have been tempted to stick around if it had been an option.  Read More »

Ben Affleck Batman

UPDATE 2/23/17: It looks like Matt Reeves will be directing The Batman after all. Warner Bros. officially announced the hire today, with president and chief content officer Toby Emmerich saying they were “thrilled” with the decision. The press release (which you can read here) oddly does not mention Ben Affleck, even though he officially remains on board to produce and star, but Erik Davis has confirmation from the studio that Affleck is still set to play Batman.

Deadpool 2 Script

Last night, our friends at Collider landed a big scoop about The Grey and A-Team director Joe Carnahan being brought in to write the developing X-Force movie at 20th Century Fox. The mutant team includes Deadpool at the heart of the crew, and he’s frequently accompanied by characters like Cable and Domino, who are supposed to be part of Deadpool 2. So it should come as no surprise that they have the inside track on the development of the Merc with a Mouth’s anticipated sequel.

The studio has been pretty quiet about the development of Deadpool 2, aside from confirming John Wick co-director David Leitch as the replacement behind the camera for the departed Tim Miller, and that appears to be because co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are still hard at work on the script. In fact, they’ll be getting some help from another writer with comic book adaptation experience to finish the Deadpool 2 script. Read More »

legion episode 4 trailer

This week’s episode of Legion ended with a bit of a cliffhanger: Dan Stevens’ David Haller found himself in a bit of a psychic pickle while his new allies barely escaped from his subconscious mind after being assaulted by his literal inner demons. It was wild and creepy and inventive, everything we’ve come to expect from this series so far. And if the trailer for next week’s episode, titled “Chapter 4,” is any indication, things are about to really start heating up.

Logan Credits Scene

Earlier this week, sources indicated that the cut of Logan all the critics saw over the weekend didn’t have a post-credits scene. However, a couple days after that, there was a change in the film’s runtime. 20th Century Fox updated the length of Logan so that it was about three minutes longer than the cut that screened for critics. Then came confirmation that the extension of the runtime was due to a post-credits scene being included, or so we thought.

The same source that previously confirmed the existence of a Logan credits scene has since rescinded that story. But in the same breath, they indicate that while those extra few minutes won’t be spent on a credits scene, fans will still get some kind of treat before the movie starts. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

‘Legion’ Spoiler Review: Thoughts on ”Chapter 3”

legion episode 3 review

Legion announced itself as a new kind of superhero show with its pilot episode and the third episode continues to run with that torch. Here is an hour of comic book-inspired television that feels like it was mined from the bizarre, niche corners of the X-Men universe, sidestepping every obvious choice to really dig into the addictive weirdness of fringe superhero stories. Here is an hour of television that spends the bulk of its running time literally exploring the mind of its lead character, with the cast wandering through one psychic horror show after another. After “Chapter 2” paused to catch its breath, “Chapter 3” plunges us straight into the abyss once again.

So let’s talk about it.

The ‘X-Force’ Movie Will be Written by Joe Carnahan

x-force movie

The last time we heard anything solid about Fox’s X-Force movie, X-Men franchise mainstay Simon Kinberg was working on the screenplay. Then there were rumblings that this team of mutant heroes, darker and a bit more violent than your typical X-Men team, would be introduced in the third Deadpool movie (never mind that Deadpool 2 doesn’t even exist yet). And now, out of the mist, someone new has arrived to steer the X-Force movie toward port: Joe Carnahan.
