Deadpool 2 featured its fair share of notable mutants from X-Men lore, but there are so many characters in that universe that there’s never enough time to do them all justice on the big screen.
One mutant who has never been given his due in a live-action X-Men movie is a Russian villain named Omega Red. He’s slated to appear in one of the bonus features on the upcoming Blu-ray release of Fox’s Deadpool 2, and now one of the movie’s makeup artists has given us our first good look at the character.

Netflix purchased comic book writer Mark Millar‘s Millarworld company last year, and they’ve already teamed up to release the streaming service’s first comic book, The Magic Order. But Netflix didn’t buy Millar’s company solely to make comic books: they’re in it for that sweet, sweet intellectual property.
The first batch of Millarworld movies and TV shows was announced this morning, and they include movie adaptations of Empress, Huck, and Sharkey the Bounty Hunter and TV series based on American Jesus and Jupiter’s Legacy. Read more about each of these new Mark Millar Netflix projects below.

One of the reasons Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is so highly anticipated is the prospect of seeing a young, hot Dumbledore played by Jude Law. Well, and the fact that it’s part of a spin-off from the most beloved children’s fantasy series ever. And while we’ve been gifted with a few great shots of Dumbledore lounging in a dapper, tailored suit, one of the most important aspects of Dumbledore’s youth has been largely left out: his sexuality.
In the second film of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, the Wizarding World lore will dive deep into Dumbledore’s backstory and his conflicted relationship with the series’ Big Bad, Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). But it seems like Fantastic Beasts is playing the long game: in Fantastic Beasts 2 Dumbledore and Grindelwald will share no scenes together.

But this new trailer is surprisingly fun, and hints that this latest adaptation of the classic legend is going to have a sense of humor rather than being another dark and gritty reboot. Watch the newest Robin Hood trailer below.

Bruce Willis recently woke up from one of his lengthy naps to attend The Comedy Central Roast Of Bruce Willis, where friends and well-wishers took to the stage to insult him. Willis then stepped up to the podium himself and committed the ultimate faux pas: he declared that his classic action film Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. You’re wrong, Bruce Willis.

After directing Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3, filmmaker Jennifer Yuh Nelson is making the jump to live-action with The Darkest Minds, an adaptation of a YA novel about kids who develop super powers and strike back against their oppressive captors. 20th Century Fox has just released a new trailer, which concentrates more on the love story between Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) and Liam (Harris Dickinson), two of the most powerful mutants – uh, I mean, super-powered teenagers – of the revolution.

Moon and Mute director Duncan Jones teased last week that his next project would be a comic book movie. Immediately, fans began speculating which Marvel Studios or DC Extended Universe project the filmmaker might be taking on. But it appears they needed to look beyond the two biggest players in the comic book world for their answer.
Duncan Jones posted a homemade video to Twitter over the weekend featuring himself pondering what project to tackle next. He alludes to the possibility of something Marvel or DC related, even mentions the likes of Image Comics and Dark Horse. But we soon find that what tickles the fancy of Duncan Jones is something from the 2000 AD comic book world, where Judge Dredd resides. However, Jones doesn’t have his eyes on reviving Dredd, but instead he might be bringing Rogue Trooper to the big screen for the first time. Read More »

Ever since the first Uncharted video game arrived back in 2007, fans have wanted to see actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle) play the lead role of Nathan Drake, a treasure-hunting adventurer/thief, in a movie adaptation. The actor bears a striking physical resemblance to the video game protagonist, and Fillion has proven capable of matching the character’s sarcastic temperament and quick wit in parts he’s played in the past. An Uncharted movie has been in the works for years at Sony, but since Fillion isn’t going to be involved with that project, he’s taken matters into his own hands.
In this unofficial live-action Uncharted fan film, Fillion finally suits up as Nathan Drake – and he’s joined by a cast of familiar faces in key supporting roles. Check out the short film below.
