One of the most surprising news stories of the past week had to be the fact Fox finally greenlit a Deadpool movie. The film had been in development for years. Director Tim Miller was attached, a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had been floating around the internet for years, and rumors swirled of test footage shot with star Ryan Reynolds. Finally, that footage leaked, showing a confident, vulgar Deadpool joyfully killing a group of men driving in an SUV. The tone of the comic was there, and yet one thought the film would happen.
Still, the leaked footage rekindled the buzz on the film and Fox is now eyeing a February 12, 2016 release date for Deadpool. It all begs the question, “How and why did this happen now?” One source says it’s because everyone figured out a way to make the decidedly R-rated character PG-13.

Most people couldn’t dream of stealing scenes away from colorful characters like Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon, but Drax the Destroyer isn’t most people. The hilariously literal warrior won us over in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy, with his dry delivery, tragic sob story, and badass moves. Now it seems Marvel’s hoping he’ll do the same in Avengers 3.
Rumor has it Dave Bautista is being set up for a major role in the upcoming threequel, which is expected to close out Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hit the jump for all the details.

With Guardians of the Galaxy topping box-office tallies so far in 2014, you can be sure that other studios are looking at their options for new space-based action films. There are some obvious ones in development including Star Wars and Star Trek, but what about studios that don’t already have franchises going? The latest rumor is that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of development on a Legion of Super-Heroes movie.
The Legion is a long-running DC hero team that could, in a very (very) loose manner be considered the equivalent of the Guardians. The team has appeared in decades of comics through several big reboots, and also has a presence in animation, and even live-action via Smallville. Just as the Guardians and Avengers are potentially going to be in opposition with Thanos, the Legion has a solid history with Darkseid, the Jack Kirby character who actually inspired Thanos.

One of the first rules of reporting is that if you can’t get a primary source, get corroborating sources. Let’s say you’re trying to figure out what happens in Star Wars Episode VII. J.J. Abrams or Harrison Ford would be a primary source because they are directly involved. Since they can’t or won’t speak on the record about it, the best thing to do is find multiple unrelated people can who give you the same information. If you can get three people to corroborate something, that’s usually considered a fact.
We might now have two sources to push some big rumors toward fact.
Latino Review has been one of a handful of sources for the myriad Star Wars 7 rumors in the past few months. In a new column, they reveal almost everything they’ve reported was initially reported back in March on 4Chan. That seems to mean two independent sources have corroborated some of the biggest Star Wars 7 rumors/spoilers out there today.
Below, we’ll show you that original report and trace the links between the sites. Beware of massive spoilers. Read More »
