Deadpool 3 update

Deadpool is supposed to return in Drew Goddard’s X-Force movie, but Ryan Reynolds and his Deadpool 2 co-writers are also hard at work on Deadpool 3, which will presumably be on deck after X-Force wraps production. At a press event in China, Reynolds gave a quick update on their planned superhero sequel, teasing that he and his collaborators are not interested in retreading the same ground the franchise has covered thus far.

Shazam spoiler

When Warner Bros. and DC gave Aquaman a December 2018 release date, it was clear that the focus would be on that film for the final part of the year. But it’s been over a month since that film splashed down in theaters, and attention is slowly turning back to Shazam!, the studio’s next major superhero movie. As the Zachary Levi-fronted comedy approaches its release date, a pair of Funko Pop! toys have seemingly spoiled one of the movie’s key plot points and confirmed a rumor that first popped up almost a year ago.

Spider-Verse cameos

In early December, we wrote about how former Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire was once in consideration to play Peter B. Parker in Sony’s Oscar-nominated animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. That role as an older, out of shape web-slinger eventually went to New Girl actor Jake Johnson, but Maguire wasn’t the only former Spider-Man to be on a wishlist for the acclaimed animated feature.

It turns out that Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and Tom Holland, who currently plays Parker in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, were both written into an early version of the screenplay. If all went according to plan, they would have shared a scene with Maguire, which would have united the Spideys for the first time.  Read More »

highlander reboot update

Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick films, has been attached to a potential Highlander reboot since 2016, but we’ve heard very little on the project over the years. Now, ahead of the release if John Wick: Chapter 3, Stahelski has offered an update: he still very much wants to make the reboot, but he wants to make sure he gets the complex mythology correct.

Alita Battle Angel clip

In the futuristic science fiction world of Alita: Battle Angel, the population needs entertainment – and they find it in the form of Motorball, a brutal sport in which cyborgs race around a ring chasing after a ball while destroying each other to get it. 20th Century Fox has released a new clip of a few highlights of director Robert Rodriguez‘s action sequence, which features the amnesiac cyborg Alita (Rosa Salazar) absolutely obliterating her competition in front of an electrified audience.

bumblebee sequel

Bumblebee may not have earned the buzz it deserved at U.S. box offices, but the Transformers prequel is seeing major success internationally.

The Kid Who Would Be King Review

An old-fashioned streak of adventure runs throughout The Kid Who Would Be King, a riff on the King Arthur legend gussied up for modern times. It’s a decent enough family film, largely dependent on the charm of its young cast, that manages to be slightly disappointing only if you recognize the name of its writer/director. That would be Joe Cornish, whose directorial debut Attack the Block was a blast of fresh air back in 2011. Inexplicably, it’s taken Cornish the better part of a decade to make another film; his sophomore effort The Kid Who Would Be King is fine, even if it would’ve been nice for the film to be a bit more remarkable.
