Rumors have said that Darkseid, DC’s inter -dimensional villain who inspired Thanos over at Marvel, might be the bad guy for the upcoming Justic League film. Now a new rumor changes that up, saying that the League will instead ally against Braniac. (Though there’s no reason we couldn’t see both in the film in some way.) Along with that info, there’s rumor on the lineup of DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad film, though anyone who read the late ’80s incarnation of that comic won’t be surprised by the roster. Read More »

What’s the deal with Spider-Man? It’s the question fans have been asking all summer. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a major disappointment in almost all respects; following its debut grand plans to continue the franchise were completely reshuffled. As it officially stands right now, Drew Goddard‘s Sinister Six film will be out in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 will follow in 2018. There will also be a female-focused film sandwiched somewhere in the middle. That’s all official via Sony.
However the latest rumors suggest some, if not all of that might not be true anymore. Yesterday, the very reputable Drew McWeeny at Hitfix said he’d heard rumblings Sony was talking to Marvel Studios about working out some kind of deal for a crossover. Then today, the equally reputable Devin Faraci at Badass Digest said that’s just one of the possibilities he’s heard Sony is considering with the characters. The others are a “soft reboot” with the Sinister Six, completely shelving the character for a few years, and canceling the planned Venom movie.

After some initial denials, William Shatner confirmed last week he’d been contacted about Star Trek 3. So now the question is what exactly he’ll be doing in the movie, and a new report claims to have some of the juicy details.
Meanwhile, Leonard Nimoy, who’s rumored to appear alongside Shatner in the next film, has finally issued a response. Or maybe we should cal it a non-response, since it neither confirms nor denies anything.

UPDATE 10/6/14: A few weeks back, we ran the below story about a possible Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off being in the works. Now, that rumor has expanded to not only give an idea of what the story could be, it might even be more than one movie. The update is after the jump.
As little as we know about Star Wars Episode VII, we know even less about the Star Wars stand-alone films. We know Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank and directing the first two. We’ve heard they may be origin stories and rumors have run rampant of all the various characters that might be featured. Han Solo and Boba Fett are two of the best bets, but Yoda has been mentioned too, possibly a side character in Episode VII and now another name has entered the mix. A new rumor has hit that Lucasfilm is developing an Obi Wan Kenobi stand alone film. Out of all of those rumors, this is the one that makes the most sense. Read More »

We don’t know when The Avengers 3 is going to be released. We don’t know who’s going to write it, who’s going to direct it, but we always thought we know who’d star. Now, even that may be up in the air.
A new rumor says that whatever Marvel Studios has planned for the eventual third Avengers film isn’t what we think at all. It may not even feature many of the big stars of Phase 1 and 2. Stars like Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor or Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. According to the rumor, Marvel might be packing Avengers 3 with the new stars of their universe. Characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and Doctor Strange setting up some kind of even bigger event after that. Read more about this Avengers 3 rumor below. Read More »

There’s no end to the amount of rumors and speculation surrounding Star Wars Episode VII. Like, literally no end. The second we read, analyze, and write about one, another two pop up in its place. This is how things are going to go until J.J. Abrams and friends gives us some actual fat to chew on in the form of real information. Who are the actors playing?
