Adam Wingard Shares An Image Of Death Note's Ryuk On Twitter

8 hours ago

Netflix continues to roll out great exclusive shows that keep subscribers coming back for more. From the Marvel shows to A Series of Unfortunate Events Netflix has something for everyone. This August they will be releasing Death Note, which is based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohna and Takeshi Obata and the anime that followed. In case you are not familiar with Death Note, it follows a high school student named Light Turner, played by Nate Wolff, who comes across a mystical notebook dropped by Ryuk, a Shinigami voiced by Willem Dafoe. The notebook has the power to kill any person whose name is written in the book. Although he starts off with good intentions, he becomes intoxicated with killing anyone who he feels deserves to die. The mysterious deaths then get the attention of a famous detective named "L", played by Lakeith Stanfield, who takes the case to bring Light down. »

Power Rangers Sequel Could Bring Changes To The Zords

9 hours ago

Earlier this year Lionsgate tried to give us a blast from the past with Saban's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Overall it ended with some mixed reviews from audiences and only grossing a little over $85 million domestically. The film tried to modernize the original Power Rangers Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy and Trini. They also brought back Zordon, Alpha 5 and the evil Rita Repulsa. With the mediocre reception the film got here domestically and overseas, the idea of this being a franchise quickly began to fade.

But thanks to toy sales it has been reported earlier this week that Saban and Lionsgate are discussing the possibility of a sequel. One of the most important aspects of any of the Power Rangers are the Zords, who in the film were necessary to defeat Rita and her monster Goldar. Comicbook.com had the opportunity to speak with the director for Saban's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, »

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Tom Holland Teases The Return Of One-Shots!

13 hours ago

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one that’s been full of a lot of experimentation. Never before had audiences seen a connected world on this scale, and with each successive movie, Marvel Studios seemed to get a little more bold. Near the end of Phase 1, they started producing little one-shots that showed up on the special features of certain films.

It was a short four-year period in which was done. It started with “The Consultant” on the home release for Thor and ended with “All Hail The King” in Thor: The Dark World. They weren’t exactly of huge consequence (after all, we’re sure some of you may not have even heard of them), but they were fun little expansions into an already-intricate world. The most memorable one to me personally was “All Hail the King.” Not all fans liked the Iron Man 3 twist that saw a bastardization of the Mandarin. »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Adam Driver Says Rian Johnson Creates ‘New Rules’ For Franchise

15 hours ago

Director J.J. Abrams had a difficult task before him when he signed on to helm Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In taking the lead for the first entry in the revived franchise, he had to set the tone for things moving forward, all while pleasing hardcore fans who have waited decades for a proper follow-up to the original trilogy.

What we ended up with was a solid film that was a loving retread of the original film. Some fans think The Force Awakens was Too Much of a retread, and were hungry for something a bit new, but on the whole, I personally think it was the smartest way to reintroduce fans to a galaxy far, far away. With the next entry in the saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi , many are hoping that they’ll be open to taking more risks, and from everything we’ve heard, they seem to be doing just that. »

Deadpool 2: Josh Brolin Teases His Cable Transformation In New Instagram Photo

16 hours ago

While plenty of geeks were hopeful that Deadpool would prove to be a worthwhile risk for 20th Century Fox, there was no way anyone could have predicted that the $50 million film-that-could would go on to make $750 million at the box office. Even better, the film actually turned out to be a pretty warm and personal love story with a dark and foul-mouthed edge to it — which was refreshing for a genre that had pretty much kept itself relegated to PG-13 ratings for the past decade.

When Deadpool succeeded, fans had an idea where Deadpool 2 would go in terms of characters introduced. At the top of the list of mutants to bring to the table were both Domino and Cable, and as we already know, those two are cast and confirmed to be in the film. The former is set to be played by Zazie Beetz, and the latter by Josh Brolin. »

The Flash Season 4: Will Wally West Will Take On The Mantle Of The Flash? Actor Responds

17 hours ago

The end of The Flash Season 3 saw things in an interesting place. After mucking things up for a full season, we got to see Barry Allen get is due when he sacrificed himself to the Speed Force (yes, I’m a bit vindictive). This was a cool conclusion to a season, but it did leave questions as to how Season 4 would pick up. Some speculated that Wally West would take on the mantle of the Flash as he did in the comics.

Would the CW have the guts to switch out the main character in Season 4? Newsweek asked that very question of actor Keiynan Lonsdale who plays Wally West in The Flash, and here’s what he had to say:

“It’s not something that’s on my radar. I feel as though there is so much story to tell and Wally has so much growing to do. I’d »

Marvel's Kevin Feige Teases Avengers: Infinity War Secrets

19 hours ago

We're less than one year until Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War slams into theaters everywhere -- seriously, are there any theaters on the planet that won't be showing this movie? Marvel is still closely guarding the plot details, but we certainly know that it will involve Thanos (Josh Brolin), the Infinity Gems, and Spider-Man...look, I know you know this, but not everyone's a comic nerd like us, Ok? Rumor has it that a trailer will debut with Thor: Ragnarok, but that's a long ways off.

We do know that this is a massive film with upwards of 60 Marvel characters appearing; including at least one scene containing 32 characters alone. I know this is true because there's a link to that very article right below -- it's a good article, you should read it!

Kevin Feige Has Discussed Bringing Captain Britain To The McU

19 hours ago

The McU has come a long way since its release of Iron Man in 2008. On the big and small screen we have seen the likes of The Avengers, Ant-Man, The Guardians of the Galaxy and other Marvel characters we grew up only seeing in comics and cartoons. One of the biggest hurdles that Marvel has had to overcome is the fact that they don't own the rights to all their characters including one of their most popular characters, Spider-Man. Thanks to a partnership between Sony and Marvel Studios, Spider-Man was featured in Captain America: Civil War and now Iron Man will be featured in Spider-Man: Homecoming. To talk about the upcoming Spider-Man film Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President and Amy Pascal, former Sony Pictures head, sat down with Stefan Pape of HeyUGuys. During the interview the topic of other characters being brought into the McU was brought up and an interesting name came up, »

A Bad Moms Christmas Gets A Hilarious Red Band Trailer

20 hours ago

Last year, the unexpectedly charming comedy Bad Moms hit theaters. It wasn’t any Citizen Kane by any means, but it was an endearing and funny look at all the crap a lot of moms have to put up with, even in today’s more progressive society. The film clicked with an audience, and went on to make a whopping $183 million worldwide on its $20 million budget. If there ever was an excuse to make a sequel, this was it.

But who knew the sequel would hit within a year and a half of the first one’s release? It turns out that’s exactly what we’ll be getting. Stx Entertainment has just released the trailer for the sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas, and if you were a fan of the first one, it looks like you may be getting a lot more of the same in this one.

DC Extended Universe: Is WB Hoping To Get A Red Son Movie Off The Ground?

20 hours ago

Sparked by a back and forth on Twitter between comic book writer Mark Millar and film director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, it appears that Warner Bros may be considering making a Red Son movie. Vogt-Roberts, who directed Kong: Skull Island, said that he had made a pitch to Warner Bros. for the movie, although the idea was shot down, and Mark Millar (who wrote the Red Son comic run) mentioned that two friends of his have received pitches from the studio over the last two months.

According to Den of Geek UK’s “very very very” reliable sources it has been confirmed that this is a live action film that is being discussed, and not an animated one. The outlet spoke with Millar about how serious Warner Bros may be about a Red Son movie:

"Is this something they're genuinely planning? I have no idea," Millar told Den of Geek. "I've got »

Tom Holland Wants To See This Spider-Man Story Hit The Big Screen

21 hours ago

With Spider-Man: Homecoming ridiculously close to its release — and with the film already facing all sorts of positive feedback from those lucky enough to have seen it — fans are already looking to the future. How involved will Spider-Man be in the McU going forward, and how the webslinger will fare in his sequels going forward.

The Vulture will be presumably out of the way, and with there seeming to be little chance that the Osborns and Green Goblin will rear their ugly heads into the storyline (at least in a big way). Who can we see Spidey going up against in the future? We don’t have any godd**n clue as of this writing, but speaking with CinemaBlend, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland shared his thoughts as to which storyline he’d like to see them pull from, and it may be a bit surprising.

5 Ways Wonder Woman 2 Can Improve On The Original

22 hours ago

Wonder Woman kicked butt and showed audiences everywhere that a superhero movie with a female lead can both draw audiences ($650 million worldwide and counting) and satisfy fans (Cinemascore: A). It's been a successful strike in the battle for more opportunities for women (the film had both a female star and director) and has saved the critical fortunes of Warner Brothers' DC Extended Universe (92% on Rotten Tomatoes). It's safe to say this movie was a home run.

That being said, there hasn't ever been a perfect movie, and once you get past the feminist positive vibes and shock of seeing a crowd-pleasing DC movie, there is a lot of room for improvement in the sequel. Here's my top five things that I'd like to see worked on:

Spider-Man: Homecoming Director Jon Watts Likely Returning For Sequel

23 hours ago

Spider-Man: Homecoming is still a couple weeks from its July 7 release, but already all signs are pointing to this one being another good time in the theaters. Between the high school antics of Peter Parker and the bigger world-building stuff from Tony Stark, it seems like Spider-Man: Homecoming could very well be the best of both worlds. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it looks like it features the Peter Parker we’d been hoping to see for years.

We won’t get a chance to see the film until later tonight, but for now, all the buzz seems to be quite positive. Well, you can count this latest piece of news to that big pile of positives, as director Jon Watts may already be on board for the sequel.

Michael Keaton Didn't Read Any Comics To Prepare For Spider-Man: Homecoming

27 June 2017 6:24 PM, PDT

Know the source material! That has to be a rule when doing a comic book movie, no? Often, after an actor gets a role as superhero or supervillain these days, they often take to Twitter or Instagram to show themselves researching the role with a nice, crisp comic book. The most recent one in memory is Brie Larson curled up on her couch with a copy of Captain Marvel, preparing for the 2019 film. 

Michael Keaton surely does his research, having played Batman in two films, and Vulture in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. I mean, don't you need more than just a script to capture the essence of a character with such a storied history? 

Keaton took to Twitter as part of a Q&A for Spider-Man: Homecoming on the film's Twitter account. A fan asked Keaton if he read any comics to prepare for the role and Keaton's answer was short and sweet, »

How Much Spider-Man To Expect In Avengers: Infinity War

27 June 2017 5:30 PM, PDT

Thanks to a landmark deal between Sony and Marvel Studios, Spider-Man has already joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War and next week's Spider-Man: Homecoming. The agreement continues into Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers 4, and the currently untitled Spider-Man: Homecoming 2. Past that, it's anyone's guess how long Sony and Amy Pascal will share the character with Marvel Studios and its president, Kevin Feige. So, one would expect Feige to get his so-called "money's worth" with the Avengers films on Spider-Man's contract, especially since Feige considers the character to be "the jewel in the crown" at Marvel.

With a cast so full of characters in Infinity War, how much screentime will Spider-Man really receive? After all, though Spider-Man may be the face of Marvel, the films need to focus on giving our original Avengers a proper send-off, plus the Guardians of the Galaxy are involved as well, in »

Star Wars: Jabba The Hutt Rumored To Show Up In the Han Solo Flick

27 June 2017 4:45 PM, PDT

It’s been a rough week for the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were unexpectedly removed from the production, and in their place, Lucasfilm placed veteran filmmaker Ron Howard in their place. Without a doubt, spirits are a bit low regarding the film and the Star Wars spinoff films in general, but luckily that’s not what we’re here to talk about today.

This latest report comes courtesy of That Hashtag Show. According to them, we may see one familiar slimy piece of worm-ridden filth pop up in the film in a very important role. They say that Jabba the Hutt himself was in the early version of the film, and that despite the change in leadership they don’t really expect to see Jabba leave.

This news, if true, seems to be very much in keeping with what Disney has been trying »

Edgar Wright Hasn’t Seen Ant-Man, And Probably Never Will

27 June 2017 2:45 PM, PDT

Ant-Man was a film that received a whole lot of negative press prior to its production. For years, filmmaker Edgar Wright had worked hard at developing the superhero project for the big screen. The only problem was that Wright was developing it even before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was established. As a result, when the film was ready to hit production, it all of a sudden needed to fit into the larger world that had materialized around it.

We all know what happened next. Wright dropped out due to creative differences, and the film was carried to fruition by Peyton Reed, who did a pretty good job. The film was no Citizen Kane, but after the disappointment that was Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man was a nice, low-key palate cleanser for things to come in the McU.

The Batman To Be Noir Driven, Show Detective Side Of The Caped Crusader

27 June 2017 1:27 PM, PDT

Batman has had a lot of great movies. Between the cheesy 1966 Adam West-starring Batman, all the way to the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, we have seen numerous effective interpretations of the Caped Crusader. But if there’s one side we’ve seen much too little of, it’s the world’s greatest detective side.

We did see glimpses of it in The Dark Knight, such as when Batman re-assembled the shattered bullet to help pull a fingerprint, but that film seemed to play out more like a thriller than a mystery, since we already knew a lot of the things Batman didn’t. With Matt ReevesThe Batman, it sounds like we’ll be getting a more standard, noir-ish detective story — one that focuses very heavily on Batman’s perspective.

Speaking with New Trailer Buzz, Reeves said:

“What I try to do, in an almost Hitchcockian sense, »

Spider-Man: Homecoming Doesn't Have An Uncle Ben

27 June 2017 11:50 AM, PDT

Just like the origin story of Bruce Wayne’s parents being killed in an alley gets told over and over again in every movie, the same goes for Peter Parker’s uncle Ben. For both characters, it is a crucial element to their backstory and who they eventually become. With the world of comics and superhero movies being so prevalent in pop culture, the re-telling of these aspects of a character’s life can quickly grow old. Chances are if you are planning to go see Spider-Man: Homecoming, then have most likely seen the previous iterations of the character, and are well versed with Uncle Ben’s fate.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige recently spoke with CinemaBlend about the lack of Uncle Ben in, Spider-Man: Homecoming, “The truth is, we want audiences to bring their own...let them fill in those blanks right now. They've seen the other films. They've read comics. »
