One of the questions surrounding Warner Bros.’ upcoming Green Lantern movie is which Green Lantern it’ll center on. There have been several of them in the comics, since they’re all part of a single intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. Would Warner Bros. attempt a do-over with Hal Jordan? Or might they move on to other popular Green Lanterns like John Stewart?
Well, now the rumor is that the Green Lantern movie won’t focus on any one of those — because it’ll follow multiple Green Lanterns. And that Chris Pine, who was recently reported as being in talks for Wonder Woman, could play one of them. More on the Green Lantern rumors after the jump. Read More »

Marvel brought the God of Thunder into their cinematic universe back in 2011 with Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth as the son of Odin. At the helm of the film was Shakespearean filmmaker and actor Kenneth Branagh, and if a new Thor 3 director rumor is to be believed, it sounds like Marvel Studios might want him back to direct Thor: Ragnarok.

It seems appropriate that the practically ageless Wolverine would be the one constant in Fox’s X-Men franchise. But after over a decade and more than half a dozen films, Hugh Jackman will be saying goodbye to the character in 2017 with the untitled Wolverine spinoff.
Details on the film have been kept under very tight wraps. But now a new rumor suggests Jackman will be able to give the character a nice sendoff by bringing him into the twilight of his life via the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics. Hit the jump to read all about the Wolverine 3 Old Man Logan rumor.

Thirty-five million dollars. That’s all that separates the worldwide grosses of the first Kick-Ass, and its sequel, Kick-Ass 2. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when neither gross is over $100 million, and each cost about $30 million to make, it’s a big percentage. Because of that, plans to continue the franchise either with a Kick-Ass 3 or Hit Girl spin-off have pretty much stalled. Fans still talk about the ideas, though, and so do the filmmakers.
Case in point: Kick-Ass director and sequel producer Matthew Vaughn. In a new interview, he suggests he’d like to do a Kick-Ass prequel, centering on Hit Girl and Big Daddy, as a palate cleanser leading to Kick-Ass 3. Sounds awesome right? Well series co-creator Mark Millar is less optimistic about those movies actually happening. Check out the Vaughn and Miller Kick-Ass prequel and sequel quotes below. Read More »

As it stands right now, Captain America: Civil War will include every single Earth-bound superhero in the MCU minus two: Thor and Hulk. They’re even adding in the new people like Ant-Man. So why are those two characters not in the movie? Thor, at least, has a solo movie that should cover his absence but Hulk does not. Last we saw the mean, green machine he was in a S.H.I.E.L.D plane hoping to get lost from the world.
According to Mark Ruffalo, the actor behind Hulk, he hasn’t heard anything about the movie except from one person: Robert Downey Jr. Tony Stark himself told Ruffalo he was in Civil War, but Ruffalo says he hasn’t heard from anyone else beyond that. Read the Mark Ruffalo Captain America Civil War quotes and more below. Read More »
At one point, Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren was signed on to be at the helm of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s adaptation of Wonder Woman.
