Quasar

Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn posted a tweet yesterday that is leading fans to speculate that the character Quasar might appear in the third installment of Marvel’s cosmic franchise. Was the tweet a sly tease, an unintentional slip-up, or just an observation completely unrelated to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? That’s the question.

Aladdin Rumor: Tom Hardy as Jafar?

You’d think after the uproar that arises over every whitewashing debacle — Ghost in the Shell, Aloha, Pan, Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Last Airbender, and more that I could list but it would take approximately 10 years to do so — Hollywood would stop doing it. Or at least, stop and think, “Hey, maybe this is a bad idea.” But no, producers and directors keep going back to the age-old “the white actor is the default” adage, even if the source material calls for the exact opposite.

To be fair, I may be working myself up into a frenzy over a rumor that will never come to fruition. The rumor is pretty heinous though: Guy Ritchie, who will be adapting Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin, wants to cast Tom Hardy as the movie’s villain, Jafar.

justice league reshoots rumor

Reshoots are a part of the movie-making business. And it can seem overzealous to simply report on the fact that reshoots are happening — trust me, I’m as tired of these kind of stories as you are, especially when they act like this is something out of the ordinary. In many cases, they’re a good thing and help make a good movie great. But when reports say that Justice League has essentially been “remade…twice” after “significant” reshoots, and is looking at even more reshoots down the barrel, that’s seems — well — significant.

aquaman villain rumors

Aquaman‘s villain roster is in serious danger of overflowing.

Not only will Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman be facing off against Black Manta, Ocean Master and King Nereus, he will reportedly have to fight off the carnivorous critters known as The Trench. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, that’s because these sea creatures are a fairly new addition to the DC Comics canon — playing a pivotal part in Aquaman‘s New 52 relaunch.

Update: Screenwriter Rhett Reese chimed in to say that there’s no truth to this story. We have kept the original post intact, mainly because it’s still a pretty handy guide to characters who could pop up in the X-Force movie.

Spider-Man Rights

When Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures announced a partnership that would allow Spider-Man to become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans lost their minds. The fact that Sony had the rights to Spider-Man initially meant that Marvel Studios previously could never bring the wallcrawler into a movie with The Avengers, but Tom Holland debuted as the webslinger in Captain America: Civil War, and now he gets his own new franchise starting with Spider-Man: Homecoming in July.

The future of Spider-Man will already include the next installment of The Avengers franchise and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that’s currently as far as the partnership between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures goes, according to Kevin Feige. However, if Guardians of the Galaxy franchise star and Avengers: Infinity War cast member Dave Bautista is to be believed, there’s a chance Marvel Studios may end up being completely in control of Spider-Man’s future again.

Josh Gad Playing The Penguin

Ever since news of a standalone Batman movie with Ben Affleck in the lead and behind the camera was announced, a close eye has been paid to every facet of development. Every time Ben Affleck had an interview, he was asked about the state of the project, and depending on his mood, the project either sounded like it was on sure footing, or it was on shaky ground. Then the Batman v Superman star removed himself from the director’s chair, and fans got worried.

Since then, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has stepped up to take his place, and the script is getting a complete overhaul. In fact, so many changes were happening behind the scenes that Joe Manganiello wasn’t even sure that he would end up playing Deathstroke in the movie as he was originally hired to do. However, now we have an inkling of one new cast member and character who may be involved with The Batman.

Evidence has been presented that makes us think Josh Gad may be playing The Penguin in the first solo outing for the grizzled Batman of the DC Extended Universe.  Read More »

Starlight Sylvester Stallone

Back in 2014, we learned that screenwriter Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) had been tasked with penning the screenplay for a film adaptation of a six-issue Mark Millar comic called Starlight. Since then, things have been relatively quiet about the movie, but a new rumor states that 20th Century Fox is eyeing Sylvester Stallone to play the film’s lead character, a retired space hero named Duke McQueen who is called back into action one last time.

Read on to learn the latest Sylvester Stallone Starlight news.

the collector's fortress in Thor: ragnarok

Disneyland Resort is currently retrofitting the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!, which is set to open later this summer. The new Disney California Adventure attraction is being rethemed into a fortress owned by Benicio Del Toro‘s character Taneleer Tivan (AKA the Collector).
