Jeremy Renner Isn’t Gunning for a Hawkeye Standalone

Jeremy Renner Hawkeye movie

For many stars, a Marvel contract means the possibility of a standalone movie, or several of them. Robert Downey Jr. has had three already, and Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have had two each. Even Scarlett Johansson has been happy to play up the Black Widow movie rumors, though Kevin Feige‘s been dragging his feet about confirming anything just yet.

But there hasn’t been much chatter about a potential Hawkeye solo film — and Jeremy Renner, for one, seems totally okay with that. Instead, he’s looking forward to showing off his archery skills in Avengers: Age of Ultron and probably (wink, wink) Captain America 3. Hit the jump to read the new Jeremy Renner Hawkeye movie comments.

From a marketing standpoint, Fox’s Gotham already had the deck stacked heavily in its favor. It’s a gritty superhero origin story, at a time when gritty superhero origin stories are doing massive business. And the superhero in question isn’t some indie-comic third-stringer, but one of the most iconic, most beloved superheroes of all time. Those facts alone would be enough to make Gotham one of the most buzzed-about new shows of the 2014-2015 season, even without a seasoned, capable creator (Bruno Heller, of Rome and The Mentalist) and a thoroughly solid cast (Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett-Smith).

But from a creative standpoint, that very same advantage — Gotham‘s familiarity — proves to be a major liability. It’s an antihero crime drama in a pop culture landscape already saturated with antihero crime dramas, and these particular antiheroes are already extremely well known. By the show’s very nature, there’s little question as to where most of its characters will end up, which drastically lowers the dramatic tension. Were Gotham not a Batman prequel, we might be left wondering whether Jim Gordon (McKenzie) could possibly make good on his promise to clean up the city, or whether Bruce Wayne’s traumatic childhood would forge a hero or a villain. As it is, we already know exactly what the answers are.

When The Wire first aired, basically everyone on it was a fresh face. Fast forward a decade and watching it is like watching an All Star Game. Several actors from the classic David Simon TV show broke out to become house hold names: Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, Lance Reddick and more. Michael K. Williams has also continued to break out. He played the villain with a heart Omar on the show and has since went onto do Boardwalk Empire, 12 Years A Slave, Robocop, The Purge: Anarchy and more.

Right around the time The Wire went off the air though, Williams booked a small role in Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk. Unfortunately, when the film came out, it was cut down to about five seconds. Read the story of Michael K Williams Incredible Hulk cameo below. Read More »

Kingsman The Secret Service

After the success of Kick-Ass, director Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar are teaming up again for another action-packed comic book movie. Kingsman: The Secret Service stars Colin Firth as an ultra-competent spy who recruits a troubled but talented street kid (Taron Egerton) for his top-secret organization.

Like Kick-Ass, Kingsman: The Secret Service takes on familiar genre tropes with wit and verve. We’ve seen well-dressed, well-mannered James Bond figures before, but probably never quite like this. Hit the jump to watch the new Kingsman The Secret Service trailer. It also features a new Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding track, if that’s your thing.

Deadpool test footage HD

One of the most surprising news stories of the past week had to be the fact Fox finally greenlit a Deadpool movie. The film had been in development for years. Director Tim Miller was attached, a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had been floating around the internet for years, and rumors swirled of test footage shot with star Ryan Reynolds. Finally, that footage leaked, showing a confident, vulgar Deadpool joyfully killing a group of men driving in an SUV. The tone of the comic was there, and yet one thought the film would happen.

Still, the leaked footage rekindled the buzz on the film and Fox is now eyeing a February 12, 2016 release date for Deadpool. It all begs the question, “How and why did this happen now?” One source says it’s because everyone figured out a way to make the decidedly R-rated character PG-13. Read more about the rumored Deadpool rating below. Read More »
