Amazing Spider-Man 3 plans

Chris Cooper’s throwaway role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was going to lead to a more prominent role in the sequel that never got made. Director Marc Webb had planned to bring him back in a big way with The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which was once scheduled to come out in 2018. Norman Osborn would’ve also led Drew Goddard’s scrapped Sinister Six movie.

Below, The Only Living Boy in New York director discusses some of his old Amazing Spider-Man 3 plans.

Thor Ragnarok Photos

Update: We have added the wild new international poster for Thor: Ragnarok below.

The buzz around Thor: Ragnarok has been high ever since the latest trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last month. In fact, the Marvel Studios sequel has been on top of the social media buzz charts for three weeks in a row. That’s impressive for a movie that doesn’t hit theaters until November.

Now the Thor: Ragnarok hype train keeps on rolling with a batch of new images debuting online, showing off the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth), both before and after the new haircut given to him by the people of Sakaar. Plus, there are new shots of Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Idris Elba as Heimdall.

Along with the new photos, there seems to be confirmation of a certain cast member from the first two installments of the Thor franchise is returning for a third round. See the new Thor Ragnarok photos and find out more about this latest casting confirmation below. Read More »

2017 summer movie season

At the beginning of the season, 2017’s summer movie prospects looked bleak. Though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 kicked things off in May with a strong start, it was followed by a string of generic tentpole movies — more symptoms of the bloated franchise-crazy studio system.

It seems like a distant memory now, but we were once inundated with another Transformers movie, another Pirates of the Caribbean, an unfunny Baywatch reboot, and Guy Ritchie’s misguided King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (Just give us The Man from U.N.C.L.E. 2, Guy!). But then came Wonder Woman, and the tides shifted.

Batman vs Two-Face

The universe was cruel earlier this year when it took Adam West away from us. The iconic actor, who played The Caped Crusader in the beloved ’60s Batman series, passed away back in June, prompting tributes from the /Film staff and fans spread across Hollywood and the world. But thankfully, we’ll get to see Adam West as Batman one more time.

Before Adam West passed away, there was a Warner Bros. and DC Comics animated movie featuring Adam West and Burt Ward teaming up again as Batman and Robin, reprising their roles from the Batman TV series that began in 1966. It was such a success that a sequel was put into works that would adapt a storyline that was intended for the TV series, but never filmed for a number of reasons. It turns out Adam West had finished recording all of his lines for that movie before he passed away, and now we know when you’ll be able to see it. Read More »

more hunger games and twilight movies

Lionsgate may volunteer the Hunger Games and Twilight franchises as tribute to reboot mania.

Both franchises wrapped up their stories before cinematic universe fever broke, and Lionsgate is itching to fill the hole — first by exploring a John Wick universe that spans movies, TV, and comic books, and now by revisiting their most popular and lucrative franchises.

How I Met Your Dad

Back in 2014, after How I Met Your Mother finished its ninth and final season, there was a spin-off series developing called How I Met Your Dad. The series wasn’t merely the mother’s side of the same story that viewers watched play out for nine years only to end on a rather disappointing note, but instead was going to focus on a new female character telling the story to her kids about how she met their father.

CBS ended up passing on the pilot, but the network is apparently still keen on figuring out how to make it work as they will have a new team of writers developing the series. But now they’re starting from scratch. Read More »
