In addition to his work with the Muppets and directing a number of good films (including Little Shop of Horrors, What About Bob?, and Bowfinger) Frank Oz is probably best as the voice and puppeteer behind Jedi Master Yoda in the Star Wars movies. This week, Oz has been doing press for a new documentary that premiered at SXSW titled Muppet Guys Talking: Secrets Behind the Show the Whole World Watched…and that means Star Wars questions.
During an interview, Oz was asked about the rumors that he might reprise his role as Yoda as a force ghost in the upcoming Skywalker saga film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. His answer raises more questions than it does provide answers, but to me, it sounds like an inadvertent confirmation of Yoda in The Last Jedi. Let’s take a closer look.

UPDATE: Collider confirms Logan will have an end-credits scene, as rumored. Original story follows.
There are many ways that Logan differentiates itself from most superhero movies, and one of them is its lack of a credits scene. There’s no mid-credits stinger, no special prize for audiences patient enough to sit through to the very end — the film’s just over when it’s over.
Or at least that was the word coming out of early press screenings. Now there’s reason to wonder if the theatrical cut might have an end-credits moment after all. Find out what why below. Read More »

UPDATE: It seems that The Fate of the Furious has started screening and it’s definitely not 160 minutes long:
The original post follows below.
Part of the charm of the Fast and Furious series has been its willingness to throw caution to the wind and give in to its every indulgence. Once the movies began to leave their humble street racing origins in the dust, they began to fly. Literally. Because they were driving cars off skyscrapers and so on. And it’s starting to sound like the running times may be catching up to the series’ increasingly grandiose scale. If the internet is to be believed (and the internet is never wrong and has never influenced the world in a negative or unfortunate way), The Fate of the Furious is long enough to demand an overture and an intermission.

Here at /Film, we’re very well aware of just how much coverage we give Star Wars. But it’s one of our favorite franchises, and plenty of our readers out there can’t help but read every single bit of all the Star Wars news and rumors out there. We try to be as discerning as possible when it comes to sifting through what sounds bogus, and when it comes to this next bit of news, we must say that we’re extremely skeptical. But considering the way previous rumors panned out, we would be remiss to not at least discuss it.
A rumored description of the first Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer has hit the web, and even though the source is questionable, one of the rumored trailer descriptions for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser turned out to be true. Read about the possible Star Wars The Last Jedi trailer description after the jump, but beware of possible spoilers. Read More »

Take this one with a grain of salt. Actually, take it with an ocean’s worth of salt. The latest rumor to hit the world of Superhero Movie News Coverage is that Marvel is working on a project built around the character of Namor and that it’s eyeing Hawaii as a potential filming location. This is entirely unsubstantiated at the moment, but we’re going to go ahead and cover it for one reason only: Marvel really should make a Namor movie. Why the hell not?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
UPDATE: Sony has officially announced a release date for their animated Spider-Man movie, along with another director and confirmation that Miles Morales will be the main character. You can find the details below.
Even though Sony Pictures appears to have Spider-Man back on track thanks to their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio is still working on a completely different version of the wallcrawler.
An animated Spider-Man movie was first announced at CinemaCon back in April of 2015 with The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller producing alongside Avi Arad and Amy Pascal. The movie was originally slated for a release in the summer of 2018, but has since been pushed back to Christmas. However, we still haven’t heard how this animated Spider-Man movie will be different from the new live-action Spider-Man franchise, other than breaking new visual ground.
That changes today if a new casting call is to be believed, as it indicates that we might finally see a version of Spider-Man that fans have been clamoring for since The Amazing Spider-Man was in development a few years ago. Read More »

Of all the films on the upcoming DCEU slate, Green Lantern Corps might be the most mysterious. Yes, it’s got a release date — and, as of last week, screenwriters — but not much more than that. We don’t know who’ll direct it, who’ll star, or what the story will be.
In the absence of any concrete information, then, let’s engage in the time-honored traditions of wishful thinking and wild speculation. First up, actor Sterling K. Brown has also noticed Green Lantern Corps has yet to cast any leads, and would like to throw his hat into the ring. And next, director Duncan Jones — who, to be very clear, is not officially associated with the film in any way that we know of — has some thoughts on how to make the story interesting. Read More »
