Following this week’s new posters, Sony Pictures has unleashed a new trailer for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and it’s absolutely flipping amazing.
Can Venom launch a cinematic universe? According to Collider, the folks at Sony have decided to take a leaf out of ‘Logan’s book, with the upcoming ‘Venom’ spin-off heading for a R-Rating. “We’re hearing that Sony is developing Venom not only as the film to launch their own Marvel Universe, but as an R-rated effort,” they revealed.
The first official trailer for ‘Justice League’ made its way online, but the reaction has been mixed. The heroes that make up the Justice League (bar Superman, of course). While we’d seen footage of Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming superhero ensemble before, this was the first proper trailer unleashed, and it packed a huge amount into two-and-a-half minutes.
With the release of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ looming on the horizon, Disney has unleashed the film’s merchandise unto the world, so lock up your wallets as we reveal the best ‘Guardians 2’ goodies money can buy.
2016 was an eventful year for comic book movies, with an array of successes, disappointments, and downright disasters. ‘Deadpool’ was one 2016’s success stories. While the first film’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were talking to Comicbook.com about their new sci-fi-horror ‘Life’, the pair commented on how ‘Deadpool 2’ would be cast imminently.
Lex Luthor is about to join the MCU. At least, ‘Smallville’ actor Michael Rosenbaum is on board. During an interview with The Adam Corolla Show, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ director James Gunn revealed that Michael Rosenbaum has snagged a role in the upcoming Marvel movie.
The Merc with a Mouth will have plenty of crime-fighting company in Deadpool 2. Star Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter today to announce that Zazie Beetz, who plays Donald Glover’s ex-girlfriend/baby-mama on the hit FX comedy Atlanta, has joined the cast as fellow mutant mercenary Domino. Domino first popped up in Marvel comic books in the early 1990s.
Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
The colourful first look at what is sure to be a very different kind of ‘Thor’ movie has now been accompanied by the first plot details, which explains a few things, including Thor’s new hair-do.
“Logan” is an American superhero drama. It is the third film to feature Hugh Jackman as the title character, Wolverine, and the tenth film in the “X-Men” film franchise. The film follows an aged, sick Wolverine and a senile Professor X in a world without mutants.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see. The film is unlike any superhero movie before it. Essentially a western, it’s grisly, astoundingly mature and director James Mangold can’t believe he got to make it.
Brie Larson won’t star in her first ‘Captain Marvel’ movie until 2019, but anticipation for the character’s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already super-high – after all, she’ll be the first female superhero to star in her own MCU movie. The lengthy stretch between Marvel announcing Larson had been cast in July 2016 and the start of production on ‘Captain Marvel’ (which we estimate will be around the start of 2018) gives her plenty of time to prepare for the very important role.
Disney has confirmed that ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ will include key scenes shot with IMAX cameras especially for the cinematic screening format. The announcement was made by Disney as it announced details of a renewed deal with the company to bring its biggest films to the hundreds of enormous IMAX screens worldwide. Disney also named other films on its slate that will be part-shot in IMAX, including: ‘Black Panther’, ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, ‘The Incredibles 2’, ‘Toy Story 4’, ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’, ‘Indiana Jones 5’, ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and the live-action adaptation of ‘Mulan’.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is ramping up its production line this year with three films instead of its usual two: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. It’s a signal of intent from Marvel and one of confidence in the hugely successful cinematic universe model which began with ‘Iron Man’ in 2008.
A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (in theaters May 5) premiered during the Super Bowl, featuring a little bit of everything fans could want — including Baby Groot, shirtless Chris Pratt, and a perfectly-timed Drax joke. The extended Super Bowl spot, above, begins with a mysterious golden-skinned woman (click here if you want to know her identity) asking Star-Lord (Pratt) who in the hell he thinks he is. Thanos’ daughter Nebula (Karen Gillan) seems to have been promoted from villain to teammate and antenna-wearing empath Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is a new addition — at least, for as long as she can avoid fireballs.
It’s still about a month and half to go before Marvel’s “Iron Fist” appears on Netflix, but there’s already a lot of anticipation for the last “Defenders” hero’s standalone series.
The band’s back together. Director James Gunn has reassembled his oddball team of outer-space heroes — and cued up a whole bunch of ’60s/’70s pop music — for the sequel to his 2014 blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy. Vol. 2 expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe with new worlds, new alien civilizations, and the unexpected Tango & Cash reunion (both Kurt Russell, who plays Peter Quill’s dad, Ego the Living Planet, and Sylvester Stallone, in an unannounced role, are in the movie). To help pass time until the film’s May 5 opening, we’ve collected all the publicity images and movie stills in one handy gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Look out! Here come the Spider-Man toys. Toy-maker Hasbro on Thursday revealed its lineup for Spider-Man: Homecoming, providing a bit of insight into the the upcoming film, which represents Spidey’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
By now, the trailers for Logan (in theaters March 3) have made it very clear that this is not a typical superhero movie. Quiet and despairing, light on special effects and heavy on character drama, the third Wolverine solo film looks to be a drastic departure from previous X-Men films, not to mention the Marvel and DC Comics films that dominate the genre. At a December press event last year, I previewed the first 40 minutes of Logan, and I can tell you that superhero films are never going to be the same.
The Marvel Universe just established its Hong Kong outpost. Thursday saw the grand opening of Iron Man Experience at Hong Kong Disneyland, the first Marvel-themed ride at a Disney park. Since acquiring Marvel in 2009 for $4.4 billion, Disney has leveraged the comic giant’s classic characters to launch a cinematic universe grossing more than $10 billion in worldwide box office.
As we learned in last month’s trailer, Peter Parker gets a souped-up spider-suit for this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, courtesy of Tony Stark. Now, thanks to a promotional Facebook video from AMC Theaters pegged to this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (watch it below), we have a better idea of what Stark’s “minor upgrades” consist of. A nod to the earliest models of Spidey’s costume, the wings give our friendly neighborhood superhero a boost when gliding from tall buildings, like, say, the Washington Monument.
