Wolverine Vs. Blade is being billed as a one-off special, which is set to hit stands or a digital retailer near you this July. The cover art for the book has been revealed and it looks absolutely wild. Set against a blood-red backdrop, with the moon shining behind them, the two titular characters are going at one another viciously. Blade is dangerously near piercing Wolverine with a stake that
We break down the latest trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix and what it might mean for Jessica Chastain's mysterious villain... and Jean Grey.
The final Dark Phoenix trailer for the final X-Men movie, at least while the mutants reside in their first cinematic home of 20th Century Fox, is here. It's no exaggeration to say that this is the best looking Dark Phoenix marketing we’ve seen this side of the international trailer.
Some fans are simply eager to get on with the future—although they have a long wait of at least five years ahead of them according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige—but we find ourselves still rooting for Dark Phoenix. Composed of a still highly talented cast, including Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and Tye Sheridan, the seventh main X-Men movie is populated with a
Kevin Feige has been making the press rounds as of late to promote Avengers: Endgame, which finally hits theaters next week. During a recent interview, he was asked about potential R-rated movies, such as further Deadpool installments, under the new Disney regime. Feige made it clear,
While many fans are happy that the Fox Marvel characters such as the X-Men are coming over to Marvel Studios at long last, some are worried what this might mean for current beloved franchises like Deadpool.
Deadpool 1 and 2 have been very successful but will the franchise be welcome at Marvel in its current form? Well, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has told Variety that they have no intention of changing it:
“When we were purchased, Bob Iger said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it’. There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”

This will certainly be good news for fans of Deadpool, who would love to see future
As part of the press tour for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the Hawkeye actor stopped by Seoul, South Korea, where he was interviewed by Cna. When asked what he thought Lee’s reaction would be watching the McU’s Phase 3 finale, Renner offered the following response:
“He’s going to be watching it, brother. He’s watching it. He’s in all of us. He’s going to be watching it.”
No doubt Lee will be on the mind of many filmgoers as they go to see next week’s release,
While talking to Variety, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained:
“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”
That’s the answer that will make so many fans so happy. Even after all the talk about keeping the character the same over the past few months fans still seemed apprehensive about it, but seriously… they aren’t going to change Deadpool! They are going to let Deadpool be Deadpool, and that’s fantastic!
In an interview with Variety, the Marvel Studios head observed that the Deapool franchise is doing pretty well for itself these days, arguing that he doesn’t need to fix what isn’t broken.
“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it,’” Feige said. “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”
The “Bob” that Feige is referring to is Disney CEO Bob Iger, who also offered his

One element that will be different is that the coming storyline won’t unspool exclusively on the big screen. This year, Disney is launching its own challenger to Netflix, a streaming service dubbed Disney Plus. Feige and his team are overseeing several limited series such as “WandaVision,” “Loki,” and an untitled show about Hawkeye for the platform. These Marvel heroes will be played by Elisabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Tom Hiddleston, and Jeremy Renner who portrayed the same characters in several big-screen “Avengers” sequels and spinoffs.
“These episodes will intersect with the movies in a very big way,
While iconic characters like Iron Man, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk and Captain America are back, newly announced heroes like Black Panther, Deadpool, Spider-Gwen and Doctor Strange also join the action, each with individual abilities or special moves. In this new story, Super Heroes unite in a race across iconic locations in the Marvel Universe to find the Infinity Stones before Thanos and The Black Order use them to unleash cosmic chaos. Up to four people can play together in local or online co-op, with the ability to drop in and out at any time.

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.

Once upon a time, not too long ago, the X-Men movie franchise was one of the big cheeses of the cinematic superhero world. 2000’s X-Men did a lot to cement the tone of the modern superhero film, with entries in the series garnering critical acclaim and cleaning up at the box office. The franchise even survived a few wobbles, moving past the disasters of X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine and filling out its universe with offbeat hits like Deadpool and Logan.
But now, with the rights to the franchise owned by Disney and the characters soon to be appearing in the McU, it seems that Fox’s take on the franchise is going to go out with a whimper. That’s because the usually reliable Box Office Pro is pegging the film at a $40-50 million opening weekend,
In the week leading up to the release of the new Hellboy film, Lionsgate unleashed something called a “Super R-rated Sizzle Reel!” to showcase what the studio hoped to be the chief appeal of their $50m (£38.1m) reimagining of Mike Mignola’s comic books: a grand parade of violence, blood, gore, mutilation and foul-mouthed mischief. The montage wasn’t coy about its intentions. Title cards proclaiming: “Hellboy is rated R / For strong bloody violence/ Gore throughout” are intercut with clips of a giant tearing a man in half, Hellboy ripping out a troll’s eye and similar imagery.
In an age where gleefully bloody and bad-mouthed superhero movies such as Deadpool and Logan lay waste to the box office, such an approach makes sense on paper.

What’s more, the cast and crew were also in attendance to offer further insight on the first live-action Star Wars TV series. Showrunner Jon Favreau, for instance, discussed his intention to explore a unique period in the franchise timeline.
“If you look throughout history, it’s fun at first, but it gets very complicated quickly,” Favreau explained. “The idea of the world after The Return of the Jedi and what would happen and what sort of characters would survive, and what it was like until the new Republic took over. You have vestiges of the Empire. You have only the strong surviving. You have chaos taking over the galaxy.”
Amidst this chaos, you’ll find the Mandalorian, played by Pedro Pascal.
We’ve seen this become increasingly more common. A reboot, a remake, or just as a counter to other films in the genre, there comes a desire to market a film as being (almost rebelliously) R rated. This weekend in fact, sees a prime example. Guillermo Del Toro made an enjoyable Hellboy in 2004. It might not have been as violent as some of the comic book incarnations. He made an even more enjoyable sequel. Visually dazzling, engaging, wry, witty and imaginative. Were Hellboy fans left feeling particularly short-changed? I never got that sense generally. Did the ‘soft’ rating leave them wishing that Hb was a bit fruitier with his language and a bit more violent in his dispatching of villains? I never particularly got that sense either.
We now have a reboot starring David Harbour in place of Ron Perlman.
Jon Favreau’s upcoming Disney Plus show features Narcos and Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal in the title role, not that you could recognise him in the recently shared photos. While one image sees the helmeted hero in the midst of a gun fight, another presents him as a silhouette, stood against a snowy backdrop as he enters a building. Meanwhile, Gina Carano of Haywire and Deadpool fame is seen wielding a machine gun and dressed in armor, and Rocky and Predator actor Carl Weathers is pictured staring at something off-camera.
These three stars will be joined by an impressive array of supporting players, including Nick Nolte,
