For a few moments last year, Adam McKay almost directed Ant-Man. At least, that’s how the situation seemed to be developing. After Edgar Wright left the project, star Paul Rudd called his friend McKay to work on the film. The pair worked together on the script and McKay was considered to helm the project, too. Ultimately, that didn’t happen, and Peyton Reed came on board.
According to a new rumor though, McKay must have left a big impression on Marvel. Rumor has it he’s now in line to direct a new Marvel movie, something he’s been vocal about wanting. Which movie? We don’t know know yet but you know we’ll speculate below. Read More »
There will be a live action Star Wars TV show. That’s not me using The Force either, it’s a fact. When Disney bought Lucasfilm one of the things they were most excited about was the possibility of putting a Star Wars show on ABC, just like they did with Marvel. It’s going to happen. The only question is “when?”
With Marvel’s show, the company exhibited patience. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D didn’t premiere until Fall 2013, which was after Iron Man 3 was released. So there was already seven Marvel movies in the can to raise awareness and help build that world. There were also two movies (Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier) coming right after that to tie into the film.
The latest rumor about the live action Star Wars TV show is Disney wants to employ a similar strategy. They are waiting to launch the TV series until the movies are in full swing. Also, it could star a character who first gets introduced in the books. Read more below. Read More »

This is an unconfirmed rumor but, if it’s true, it might be a spoiler for the Marvel Cinematic Universe 2015 movies. Beware and read more below. Read More »
Currently there are two big debates going on among Spider-Man movie fans. First: will the character in the third reboot be Peter Parker or Miles Morales? Second, how old will the actor be?

Along the way, it likely answers the first question, too.
Mateus Ward, a 16-year-old currently seen on the TNT show Murder in the First, reportedly did an audition for the role of Spider-Man. Read more about the Spider-Man auditions below. Read More »
