spider-man reboot again

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.

Turns out, the discussions with Marvel went a little deeper than we initially thought, with many different angles examined about how that marriage could work. Plus, there was a major internal discussion about how they could possibly reboot the franchise for a third time, avoiding the origin story and maybe even adapting one of the most popular Marvel Comics Spider-Man stories of all time.

Below, read the latest on plans to possibly reboot Spider-Man again. Read More »

Terminator Genisys Paradox

The new film Terminator: Genisys appears to create a whole new parallel timeline connected to the first couple films in the series, by doing even more mucking about with time travel than those two films did. We know that the new film dramatically recontextualizes major characters from the first film, but just how does the chronology of the series now fit together? And exactly how many versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger have now been sent back in time? Check out a fan edit of the film’s first trailer to explore (and heavily mock) the Terminator Genisys paradox.

hr_Star_Trek_Into_Darkness_32

When the director of the first two Star Trek films went to another Star-oriented franchise, the world waited to hear who would direct the third new Star Trek film. Dozens of names were floated for Star Trek 3 and then Roberto Orci, a co-producer and writer on the first two films in the series, stepped into the seat. This was a controversial decision. Orci had never directed a film; fans were worried. Fast-forward a few months and Orci is out. He’s still involved as a producer, but he won’t be directing. The search is on once again on for another director.

As Paramount and Bad Robot frantically try and find someone to hit a planned Summer 2016 release date, we figured we’d help. We came up with 15 names who should, could, and actually might direct Star Trek 3. That means anyone who has an obvious film in the pike is out. Anyone who had passed is out and huge Hail Marys like Spielberg, Nolan or Scorsese are out. What’s left is a half wish-list, half possible list of 15 names. Read our Star Trek 3 director ideas below.

avengers guardians of the galaxy crossover

We all just assumed Avengers: Infinity War, Parts 1 and 2, would see The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy teaming up to fight Thanos. Looking at the schedule of things, that just seemed like the logical way to go. And while we don’t know that’s not how it’s going to go, in a new interview, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 writer and director James Gunn put that simple, straightforward, team plus team crossover in doubt. He said that “Thinking that everything is going to come together in a perfect way is not necessarily the way it’s going to happen.” What could that mean? We’ll explore the Avengers Guardians of the Galaxy crossover below. Read More »
