With production underway on Star Wars: Rogue One, you can bet we’re going to start getting more news about the first Star Wars Anthology film very soon, maybe even with some official announcements at Comic-Con this week.
But in the meantime, a new rumor has surfaced about casting for the next installment of the new trilogy that kicks off with Star Wars: The Force Awakens this winter. Reportedly Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen (Ip Man) has landed a role in Star Wars: Episode VIII, continuing Hollywood’s trend of inserting a famous Asian actor or actress into their biggest blockbusters for more international appeal at the box office.
However, considering the source and what we know about both Rogue One and the forthcoming Episode VIII, we’re not sure if the details of this particular rumor are true. Find out more about Donnie Yen in Star Wars after the jump, but beware of potential spoilers! Read More »

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.
The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.

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 »

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 »
