Sylvester Stallone has been keeping himself busy during the pandemic with his long-awaited director’s cut of Rocky IV. The film’s writer, director, and ridiculously ripped star has been teasing this release for months now, but Stallone finally announced a release date, as well as a gorgeous poster reveal for the occasion. While the 35th anniversary of the 1985 epic sports drama was technically on November 27, 2020, it’s nice to still be able to celebrate Rocky Balboa’s victory all over again on the big screen.

Spider-Man 4 animatic

The year was 2010. Casting news was ramping up about Spider-Man 4, the fourth installment of director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man film series for Sony Pictures. John Malkovich was tapped to play The Vulture, and Anne Hathaway was in talks to play Felicia Hardy – who, in this iteration, would not have been the catsuit-wearing thief Black Cat, but would instead be the daughter of The Vulture known as The Vulturess.

That movie came crashing down and Sony ultimately moved on to Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films before abandoning those and teaming up with Marvel Studios on the Tom Holland-led movies. But a recently uploaded Spider-Man 4 animatic video reveals what a major action set-piece from Raimi’s scrapped movie would have looked like.

Greenland Sequel

Greenland, a shockingly good Gerard Butler movie about a planet-killing comet, is getting a sequel. Which is a little surprising, since the movie ended with the comet smashing into Earth and killing off a huge chunk of the population. But those who survived will now be forced to deal with more problems as they trek across the ruined wasteland of what was once Europe. Butler and original director Ric Roman Waugh are both set to return for the sequel, which is called Greenland: Migration.

Loki

Since the new Marvel Studios TV shows being produced for Disney+ are so closely tied to the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it only makes sense that the shows are being crafted as if they were feature films. At least that’s how they’re being treated behind the scenes with a process that removes one key element of television production.

Whenever a TV show is made, there’s typically a role called a showrunner. This position acts much in the same way that a director and producer would on a feature film set, heading up creative and managerial responsibility. Showrunners are also credited as an executive producer of the series. In the case of Marvel Studios TV shows like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki, there hasn’t been a showrunner, which means the creative process is treated more like a movie.

Spider-Man: No Way Home logo

Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be extremely interested in the idea of the multiverse: a series of separate, distinct universes running parallel to one another. Some characters have the ability to jump in and out of those universes, and before we see Doctor Strange grapple with the Multiverse of Madness next year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is primed to take audiences into that chaos by re-introducing familiar heroes and villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies into the MCU.

In a now-deleted tweet, the Sony Pictures Argentina account revealed a brief video of a new version of the Spider-Man: No Way Home logo, which ends with the logo glitching in a manner that is extraordinarily reminiscent of the glitches that happened in the 2018 animated classic Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

f9 han return

When the #JusticeforHan campaign first sprung up in the wake of the eighth entry of the Fast and the Furious franchise, The Fate of the FuriousJustin Lin wasn’t even aware of the fervor that had kicked up around the fan-favorite character that he had introduced in Tokyo Drift. Lin had stepped away from the Fast and Furious franchise with 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, having left Sung Kang‘s Han Lue to his tragic, seemingly random doom in Tokyo. But after the seventh Fast and Furious film introduced Han’s apparent killer, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), only for the eighth installment to welcome Shaw into the family fold, fans began to call for justice.

When Lin came back to direct and co-write F9, those calls are what inspired him to bring Han back, he told /Film in an interview ahead of the U.S. theatrical release of the action sequel.

The Flash in Justice League

Production on The Flash is currently underway in the U.K. It’s the first solo adventure for Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster, and he’ll have some exciting company with him in the form of Michael Keaton returning as Tim Burton’s version of Batman. Director Andy Muschietti recently teased The Dark Knight’s suit from the set of the DC Comics movie, and now he’s given the Crimson Comet the same courtesy, revealing a tease of the Flash movie costume, including a revised lightning logo.

f9 cut stunt

For the Fast and Furious franchise, the sky is the limit. Quite literally in F9, a spectacle-filled action sequel in which just one of the many wild action scenes involves sending a car up to space. But director and co-writer Justin Lin — returning to the franchise after eight years away — found that even the sky has limits.
