Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio

UPDATE: We’ve got word that Spider-Man: Homecoming villain Michael Keaton will be returning as Vulture. We talk about what that could mean in our story below.

Jake Gyllenhaal has come close to entering the superhero genre a couple times in his career. When Tobey Maguire tried to play hardball to negotiate a new contract for Spider-Man 2 and any sequels that might follow, Jake Gyllenhaal was waiting in the wings to take the job. Then the Donnie Darko and Nightcrawler star almost suited up for DC Comics as one of the top choices to play The Dark Knight in Batman Begins. But now it will be a Marvel villain role that brings the actor into the fray.

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios are working on their sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland. While it would seem that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 leaves the wallcrawler’s future uncertain, the studios are moving forward with casting for the sequel, and they’re currently in talks with Jake Gyllenhaal to play the Spider-Man villain Mysterio.

new Blu-ray releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

We’re almost there, folks! 2017 is almost at an end, and as we burn through the holiday season, it’s time to kick back and catch up on some new films you might’ve missed in theaters. That’s where good old Blu-rays come in. Yes, that’s right – there’s more to movies than streaming. Pretty sure I mentioned that before. I’ve put together a jam-packed new Blu-ray round-up for you to close out the year. There’s a lot of good stuff here, including one of Christopher Nolan’s best films; a polarizing horror movie from Darren Aronofsky; a surprisingly honest biopic; a harrowing Kathryn Bigelow drama based on a true story; yet another one of those dang Lego movies; a spy sequel; and a true crime miniseries. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Justice League Batman featurette

We’re only a few hours from the official release of Justice League, but some attention has jumped ahead to director Matt Reeves’ planned take on The Dark Knight with his solo movie The Batman. Ben Affleck, the most recent actor to don the cape and cowl, just said he’s looking for “a graceful and cool way to segue out of” the role. And now a new rumor has surfaced that claims Reeves has someone in mind to take over the role of the Caped Crusader if Affleck decides to step down – and the new contender was actually a candidate for the role before Christian Bale was cast in Batman Begins.

Who is rumored to be the replacement choice for The Batman actor? Find out after the jump.

After a bidding war, Netflix won a “heated auction” for the next film from Nightcrawler writer-director, Dan Gilroy. Not only is it going to be the third feature from Gilroy, which makes it exciting enough already, but it’s also a Nightcrawler reunion: Jake Gyllenhaal and Renee Russo are starring in the film.

Stronger trailer

Peter Berg’s Patriots Day earned solid reviews when it hit theaters last year, but the way that movie invented a single character who appeared at all of the major turning points of the 2013 Boston bombing struck me as disingenuous.

Now, director David Gordon Green is here with Stronger, a film that tells the true story of one of the bombing’s survivors, Jeff Bauman, played here by Jake Gyllenhaal. To me, this looks like a much better way of approaching the topic, and it looks like an emotional, inspiring story about overcoming adversity and personifying the term “Boston Strong.” Check out the first Stronger trailer below.

okja trailer

Okja has been at the center of many conversations — it’s Bong Joon-ho‘s next anticipated film after his critically acclaimed cult hit Snowpiercer, it’s Netflix’s next big gamble in the feature film business, and it has caused all kind of controversy at the Cannes Film Festival for its lack of a traditional theatrical release.

But perhaps not enough has been said about how good the film actually is. So the new trailer does that job for you, compiling all the rave reviews of critics singing praises for Okja.

okja characters

Okja looks like it will be a very weird movie. And while fans of director Bong Joon-ho, the mind behind riveting sci-fi features like Snowpiercer and The Host, couldn’t eat that up more, it may take a little more to sell the casual Netflix viewer on the latest film from one of the greatest living filmmakers on the planet.

Hence the new release of eye-catching character posters of the star-studded cast of Okja, which includes names like Tilda Swinton, Steven Yeun and Jake Gyllenhaal, and a featurette introducing the Korean newcomer and star, An Seo Hyun.
