Thor Ragnarok - The Grandmaster Returning in Avengers 4

Last year, Thor: Ragnarok became one of the best entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was plenty to love in the sci-fi comic book comedy directed by Taika Waititi, but easily one of the best parts was Jeff Goldblum playing The Grandmaster, the eccentric leader of the trash planet Sakaar. And according to Jeff Goldblum, it sounds like there’s a chance the brightly robed character who loves celebrating his birthday with orgies might return. Read More »

marvel 10 years

Gold is usually reserved for 50-year anniversaries, but we’ll let it slide for Marvel Studios. The studio is celebrating an unlikely 10-year anniversary that began all the way back with Iron Man in 2008 — a movie that no one expected to launch a cinematic universe spanning 10 years and 19 movies. But jump forward to 2018, and here we are: there’s a brand spanking new anniversary website and collection of posters to celebrate Marvel’s first 10 years.

ant-man and the wasp tv spots

Hope van Dyne is done playing second fiddle. After a new Ant-Man and the Wasp poster put the superheroine front and center, the latest Ant-Man and the Wasp TV spots remind us of what a goofball Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is, and how awesome Evangeline Lilly‘s Hope is.

Watchmen TV show

HBO’s Watchmen TV series has been filming in Macon, Georgia for a little while now and the sets haven’t exactly been a secret. We’ve already seen some photographs of the alternate world the show is creating, which exists in the same superhero-filled and science fiction-tinged timeline we visited in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ rightfully iconic comic book miniseries.

But a /Film reader who lives in Macon snapped some new photos of the re-dressed city and what’s on display is…interesting. Very interesting. And especially interesting if you’re familiar with the source material. Naturally, these images should be considered potential spoilers until we know more, so consider this your one and only warning.

Green Lantern Corps movie

If you’re going to make a new Green Lantern movie, you might as well get the guy responsible for the definitive comic book run of the character to steer the ship.

Earlier today, it was announced that Geoff Johns was stepping down from his position as president and chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. But the popular and influential comic writer wasn’t being cast out into the void. Rather, he’s founded his own production company, Mad Ghost Productions, which will develop the long-gestating (it was announced in 2015) Green Lantern Corps movie via an exclusive partnership with Warner Bros.

The charms of Pixar Animation Studios’ first wave of original films have been replaced in the 2010s by a barrage of sequels. Their early films felt fresh. Even though the company’s third film was the beloved Toy Story 2, Pixar avoided the Hollywood impulse of turning into a sequel factory. But recently, they’ve made Cars 2, Cars 3, Monsters University, and Finding Dory, which mostly failed to live up to expectations.

Now, we have Incredibles 2, whose writer/director Brad Bird is only a few years removed from the live-action flop Tomorrowland. So, it’s not wrong to wonder if the new adventures of the superheroic Parr family would feel creatively uninspired. Happily, while Incredibles 2 doesn’t reach the same heights as the 2004 original, it’s more intelligent than other recent sequels.
