Mad Max: Fury Road was all orange sand and teal skies, with the occasional burst of bright shiny chrome, and it looked damn great. According to director George Miller, though, the ideal color scheme for the movie would’ve been no color scheme at all. “The best version of this movie is black and white,” he told us back in May, “but people reserve that for art movies now.”
Miller may yet get his wish for a colorless Fury Road, though. According to a new report, not only does an official black-and-white version of Mad Max: Fury Road, it might actually roll into theaters next year. More about the possible Mad Max: Fury Road black and white release after the jump. Read More »

Did you think Warner Bros. was going to cast Will Smith as a major character in their burgeoning DC superhero movie universe and then only put him in one movie? Even if Suicide Squad doesn’t light fandom on fire (which seems unlikely at this point), we’ll probably see a great deal of Smith’s Deadshot in the years ahead. After all, the DC universe’s greatest marksman is a strong utility player – you can slide him into just about any story, starring any superhero, and he’ll function as a worthwhile adversary and/or reluctant ally.
So perhaps it isn’t too surprising that new rumors suggest that Smith’s Deadshot will share the screen with Ben Affleck‘s Batman in the latter’s first solo film, which is due out in sometime in 2018. Or 2019. No one seems to know. In any case, Warner Bros. may have realized that Affleck and Smith sharing the screen was too huge of an opportunity to pass up and took the appropriate steps.
Hit the jump for more that Deadshot Batman rumors.

It’s no secret that Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man will first swing by next year’s Captain America: Civil War, getting caught up in the battle between Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans). But the question we haven’t really considered yet is who might swing by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man movie.
Now an interesting bit of speculation suggests that Captain America and Iron Man might return the favor to their young friend, popping up in the Spider-Man solo outing due out in 2017. More on the Captain America and Iron Man in Spider-Man rumor after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Comc book fans who were looking forward to seeing Justice League Dark hit the big screen with director Guillermo del Toro behind the camera had their hearts broken when the filmmaker stepped away from the project over the summer. Since then, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was rumored to be offered the job, but he has chosen not to be involved as well. Now a new rumor gives us a couple more options for a potential Justice League Dark director.
As of now, Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez and Big Bad Wolves directing duo Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado are said to be the top contenders for the job, which gives us a good idea of what kind of tone Warner Bros. might be going for with this supernatural comic book adaptation.

The mere fact that a Suicide Squad movie is coming out next year is proof that Warner Bros. isn’t afraid to dip its toe into the weirder corners of the DC comic book world. And that’s great news because the weirder corners of the DC universe are where the best characters tend to hang out. Forget about Batman and Superman and their dawn of justice – let’s see the dark and magical likes of John Constantine and Deadman and Swamp Thing and Zantana team up on the big screen.
While we’re bummed that Justice League Dark will no longer be a Guillermo del Toro joint, we’re excited that it’s still in the works and is still utilizing many of the characters and concepts from del Toro’s screenplay. The film is far enough along in development that the names of certain actors and actresses are starting to come crawling out of the rumor mill. So who’s in contention for Constantine, Swamp Thing, and Madame Xanadu? And who apparently the frontrunner to play villain Anton Arcane? Let’s dive in.

One of the mysteries left open-ended in Guardians of the Galaxy is the matter of who Star-Lord’s father is. We’ve gotten hints in interviews over the years, but a seemingly spoiler-y new interview with actor Bradley Cooper (who voices Rocket Raccoon in the films) is going viral today.
In the video interview, the actor appears to either accidentally reveal the identity of Star-Lord’s father and the main villain of the upcoming sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, or just get confused about what happened in the original 2014 film. Let’s dive into this, and find out what director James Gunn has to say.
Be warned speculation about possible spoilers follows after the jump.

The upcoming X-Files revival most likely functions on its own, as a brief return to the popular, conspiracy-laden world of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. However, you just know that series creator Chris Carter and Fox both hope this thing is huge, allowing them to keep the aliens and black oil and weekly supernatural threats coming for the foreseeable future. After all, resurrecting beloved shows to appease a dedicated fanbase is all the rage these days. Why not the best genre show of the ’90s?
But if The X-Files is to continue beyond this event series, it may take on a new form. With David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson not wanting for work elsewhere, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility to see a new set of (younger! hipper!) agents pick up where Mulder and Scully left off. And since the new batch of episodes introduce some fresh-faced characters, rumors of a potential spin-off have taken root.
