Last weekend at Comic-Con, the hype centered around the likes of the first trailer for Power Rangers, the teaser trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, the first trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist series, and news of Sigourney Weaver being the villain for The Defenders. But one cool little tidbit flew under the radar until after the dust had settled.
Kong: Skull Island gave attendees of San Diego Comic-Con their first look at the classic monster reboot from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) with a teaser trailer, and now a poster handed out to some lucky folks at New York Comic-Con teases the release of the giant ape a little more. Upon first inspection, it’s just an innocent teaser poster with a grid map of the mysterious Skull Island. But when you take a black light to it, some interesting secrets are revealed. Read More »
Production on Thor: Ragnarok is well underway, and as we saw yesterday thanks to photos from director Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth, right now shooting is taking place outdoor with parts of Brisbane, Australia doubling as New York City. Photos from the set yesterday revealed Thor (Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) had returned to Earth, but we didn’t know what they were doing besides looking devilishly handsome. Thanks to some new set photos, we may have an answer.

The development of Kong Skull Island has been a staple of Comic-Con for a couple years now. The project was first announced as a surprise back in 2014, and now the film is coming to theaters next spring. Now here we are, two years later, and Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have unveiled the official teaser trailer, showing off the new version of the giant ape in all his glory.

The future of James Bond is up in the air. Rumors have been swirling that Daniel Craig really doesn’t want to come back for another mission as 007, and after his blunt comments indicating distaste for playing the iconic spy from the press tour for Spectre, that wouldn’t be a surprise. In the wake of those rumors, there have been reports of actors like Jamie Bell and Tom Hiddleston being in talks with producers to take the role. But one of those seems a little less likely now.
Tom Hiddleston already has a key role in the Marvel cinematic universe as Thor’s villainous brother Loki, and there are plenty of fans clamoring to see him throw on a tuxedo to play James Bond. However, while appearing at Wizard World Philadelphia recently, Hiddleston didn’t seem optimistic of his chances to play the secret agent. Read More »
No movie series in history inspires tabloid-y reports and rumors and mass pop culture hysteria quite like the James Bond films and that hysteria always reaches peak levels of crazy when it’s time to recruit a new actor to slip on that tuxedo. Right now, the future of 007 is awash in rumor and mystery – it’s almost impossible to tell what is true, what is false, and what resides in that gray line separating them.
But the rumor mill has been busy. First, it claimed that Tom Hiddleston was being eyed by the Bond producers to take over the role. Then, it claimed Daniel Craig turned down $100 million to return for his fifth (and presumably final) Bond movie. Now, we’ve come full circle with an intriguing report that says Hiddleston isn’t just on a wish list – he’s in “advanced negotiations” to play the most famous action hero of all time.

We’ve yet to get confirmation that Daniel Craig is done with the James Bond franchise. But considering he spent the Spectre press tour calling his character a misogynist and declaring he’d rather slash his wrists than play Bond again — and considering recent rumors that he’s turned down $100 million to reprise the role for two more films — it seems a safe assumption that he won’t be sticking around for too much longer. So the question, then, is who’ll replace him. Because Bond is eternal — the only question is what form he’ll take on next. It’ll probably be a while before we get a real answer, but in the meantime, here are some of our favorite choices. Read More »

Here’s the thing about rumors that begin with The Daily Mail – you probably shouldn’t believe them. This is an outlet that tends to get things wrong, to exaggerate, to paint inaccurate pictures, etc. They have a long history of this, especially when it comes to the James Bond movies. For every accurate morsel, there are a few stories that feel completely fabricated by sources who actually know nothing.
With that said, it’s time to address the latest James Bond rumor sweeping the internet like a wildfire started with a Q Branch gadget: certain people are now saying that Daniel Craig is done playing the character and has turned down a gigantic payday to return as 007.
