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 »

There’s no mystery about the fact that superhero films have become one of the dominant forms of the movie business in the US, but the success of Marvel’s universe-building approach is still resounding as other studios race to catch up. Two rumors today are directly concerned with the ways in which other companies are trying to get a piece of Marvel’s success. One says that Fox is developing an X-Men TV series, while another report claims that Sony and Marvel are knocking together a way in which Spider-Man could end up in a Marvel film. 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? What’s the most absolutely basic plot description? What’s the title? Any of that would change the conversation immediately.
For now, without any of that, we continue to feed on bits and pieces. Scraps of information presented in digestible form from all over the internet. Today’s example are several rumored scenes and tidbits regarding the reveal of a lightsaber, a new droid and a reference to Empire Strikes Back. To reveal more would be considered a spoiler, so read about the rumored Star Wars Episode 7 spoilers below. Read More »
We love getting excited about movies. And part of that involves reading all the rumors and gossip behind the projects we’re looking forward to. We post about what we’re interested in. We have a lot of Star Wars posts on the site because some of us are very excited about the project and like speculating about the latest rumors and details.
We often post rumors and information that could be considered possible spoilers. We are very careful about giving readers proper spoiler warnings, leaving all the spoilerish details out of the headlines and below the jump.
We love movies and we don’t want to ruin them for anyone.
This may surprise some of you, but we don’t post everything — there is lot of information we avoid in our coverage because we don’t want to completely spoil a big reveal or twist. Of course, its sometimes difficult to know if a rumor or plot tidbit is a big reveal — we try to assess every piece of information individually as it comes up to the best of our abilities and through the context of the information we have at hand.
A massive amount of Star Wars Episode VII rumors have leaked this week, and we have and will continue to cover them (again, on a case by case basis). But one potentially huge spoiler was posted on the Star Wars fan blogs last night that we won’t touch.
I mention this because I want you to know its out there. I’ve already seen a bunch of sites pick it up and I suspect that many sites will pick up the information in the coming days.
I would urge other sites not to post this one. Don’t be a dick. Think about what you’re posting and if you think its worth posting, please consider how you present it — Be considerate to those who might not want to know this kind of information.
Some headlines could be too revealing, and you might even see some people talking about it on social media. Please count this as your spoiler warning. I’m not sure if this new bit of information is real, but if it is, it should be considered the biggest of possible spoilers.
I’m not spoilerphobic at all. I believe you will still enjoy a movie even if you know everything that is going to happen. I have watched Back to the Future hundreds of times and still enjoy it each time. You read the Lord of the Rings books and knew everything that was going to happen, but they’re still some of your favorite movies, right? To me, surprises are usually gimmicks. I believe if the enjoyment of a movie hinges solely on a surprise then the movie probably doesn’t have a good enough story. All of that said, this new rumor is a potentially huge spoiler, of the “end of the movie” kind, and I wish I didn’t know about this one.
You have been warned, so now you know to avoid it.
For those of you who want to read the latest rumors and speculation, I hope you can continue to consider /Film a safe site to do that without fear of encountering spoilers like this one.
A day without Star Wars rumors is like a day without sunshine. Earlier today, we ran a few of the latest and like any good virus, a bunch of others have sprouted up around them. The most interesting has to do with the the home of Daisy Ridley‘s character, referred to on set as Kira. Multiple sources confirm not only where she lives, what she lives inside, and it’s probably a good size spoiler.
The second has to do with the role played by Max Von Sydow. We know he’s cast in the movie, but we haven’t heard much about who he’s playing outside of speculation. A new report has an idea, and it’s not at all what anyone guessed. Read more about the latest Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »

When last we left the role of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange, Joaquin Phoenix was in “final talks.” That was in late August, but Marvel has yet to make an official announcement about the casting. So we wait. Now, a new name is in the mix, reportedly contacted after Joaquin Phoenix wouldn’t make things final. That name is Ethan Hawke, the star most recently seen in Boyhood.
Hawke starred in director Scott Derrickson‘s 2012 hit, Sinister, so he has a relationship with the director. He also has that wise gravitas needed for the role. But is this real? We explore the Ethan Hawke Doctor Strange rumor after the jump. Read More »
