Gambit movie

About three years ago, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed once and for all that Channing Tatum would be playing Gambit for a standalone film. And for a while, it all seemed to be coming together nicely. A release date was announced, a director was summoned, casting got underway. Then it lost its director and had to find a new one and the whole thing got delayed.

In recent months, there’s been speculation in some corners that Gambit might not happen at all. But Donner insists that’s not true. In an appearance at the TCAs, she stated that the project is still happening with Tatum.  Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse Sequel

20th Century Fox has a lot of irons in the fire when it comes to their comic book movies. Deadpool 2 is on the way, following in the surprisingly successful footsteps of the first film, and there’s also New Mutants from director Josh Boone introducing a new team of young mutants to audiences. Beyond that, there’s the hope of a Deadpool and Wolverine crossover to follow Logan at some point. But what about the primary X-Men franchise?

Not too long ago, there was talk of some trouble behind the scenes at 20th Century Fox and rumors that there might be a soft reboot of the primary X-Men franchise. We still don’t know what’s happening on that front. But it appears that the title for the next sequel in the X-Men film series has been revealed, and it corroborates some previous details we had heard about the project.

The Defenders - Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter)

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.

See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »

The Defenders first look

First announced over three years ago, Marvel’s The Defenders is finally coming to Netflix this summer. And we’ve got the first look to prove it. A new promo image brings together Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Daredevil (Charlie Cox), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) for the very first time in their beloved hometown of New York City.

Along with that photo, we’ve also got new quotes from showrunner Marco Ramirez about how exactly it is the Defenders come to join forces, and Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb on what makes the Defenders different from certain other superhero teams (like the one headquartered just across town at Stark Tower). Check it out below.

Justice League Green Lantern

Warner Bros’ Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds was supposed to be the beginning of a new DC movie universe, but the film was critically slammed and did poorly at the box office ($220 million worldwide on a estimated $200 million budget). Six years later and Warner Bros is ready to try their hands at this beloved DC superhero once again with Green Lantern Corps. Today it was announced that the studio has hired a screenwriter and producer for the new film. Find out more about the Green Lantern Corps screenwriters and producers, after the jump.

Deadpool sequel

The Deadpool sequel is going to be bigger than its predecessor, but not too much bigger. Star Ryan Reynolds and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have stressed the importance of not forgetting what makes the first movie work — character. Thinking about Deadpool, the set pieces aren’t what immediately come to mind; it’s the foul-mouth, flawed hero and the small group of people he surrounds himself with. It’s a superhero movie with plenty of interior scenes and only a handful of main characters. With the sequel, Deadpool is going to have to make a little more room for “a lot of characters.”

Below, learn more about the Deadpool sequel, Cable, and Reese and Wernick’s thoughts on an X-Men crossover.
