AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Trailer To Hit Before Year’s End

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a vast and lengthy one, with some 16 films already made and at least 6 more coming in their Phase Three. Marvel Studios has made an estimated total gross of $12 billion and shows no signs of slowing down, with box office estimates on Thor: Ragnarok sitting at $90-$100 million for their opening weekend. To call the studio a success is a bit of an understatement. By 2012, we all knew that the MCU was the studio to beat, but then they released The Avengers that year and we finally saw the power of...

A New Rumor Suggests Casting Underway for Marvel Family in SHAZAM

Back in 1939, Fawcett Comics created the character of Billy Batson, a young boy who could transform into the superheroic adult known as Captain Marvel. Not — that Captain Marvel. It’s for this reason, that of avoiding confusion with their competitor, that DC Comics changed the name from Captain Marvel to Shazam when they bought Fawcett Comics. The name is based on the word that Billy Batson would shout out to make the transformation — SHAZAM!     That name, by the way, is an acronym for Solomon’s wisdom Hercules’s strength Atlas’s stamina Zeus’s power Achilles’s courage Mercury’s speed. The...

Clip for CONSTANTINE Animated Series Gives Us Our First Bloody Look

Wait. DC’s very own Hellblazer, Constantine, has an animated series now? Seriously? That’s amazing! And it’s even more amazing when you see this clip. Constantine originally aired on NBC, starring Matt Ryan in the titular role as the world-weary wizard thrust into a life of fighting dark, demonic forces in our earthly plain. However, the series only lasted for one season before the network cancelled it. Fans were heartbroken as it really didn’t get the chance it needed to grow into the great show it could have become. RELATED: Constantine Coming Back as an Animated Series However, the CW...

Gore Verbinski Rumored to Be the New Director for Channing Tatum’s GAMBIT

Pirates of the Caribbean. The Ring. Rango. A Cure for Wellness. The films of Gore Verbinski. And why are we bringing this up right now? Because, in an exclusive out of Deadline, we have the news that Mr. Verbinski is “making a deal” to direct the X-Men spinoff film, Gambit. It’s been a troubled production since its inception, having gone through at least two directors including Doug Liman. The film has been without a director for the better part of this year, with Verbinski being the first director named to the project since Liman’s departure. While, yes, he is...

Yo-Yo Rodriguez Is now a Series Regular in AGENTS OF SHIELD

Despite being a show with it’s fair share of ups and downs, Agents of SHIELD, with each progressive season, has gotten better and better. It’s not a perfect show, but what it excels at is bravely turning the tables and not shying away from jumping headlong into some pretty deep stakes — this is, of course, my own account of the show, you may feel differently. A perfect example of this is in the first season when boy scout agent Grant Ward turned out to be a Hydra sleeper agent. Or when Skye turned out to be Daisy Ridley,...

Casting Call for ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Hints at Flashbacks for Janet Van Dyne

Think back to the original Ant-Man film from 2015 when Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) told his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) the truth about what happened to her mother, Janet Van Dyne. Hank had told Hope her entire life that her mother died in an accident, but Hope always knew that was a lie. She always assumed that her mother had died in connection with her father’s Pym-tech — and it turns out, she wasn’t wrong. Both her mom and dad were the Silver Age heroes known as the Ant-Man and the Wasp and, in 1987, her mother...

RUMOR: Daniel Craig Could Be Mr. Sinister in GAMBIT

We’ve got a new rumor to play with from Splash Report! Last week, Splash Report gave us our first plot rumors for Channing Tatum’s still-in-development X-Men spin-off film, Gambit. According to them, “Gambit is hired to do a job in Paris” and his “mysterious employer is revealed to be Nathaniel Essex a.k.a. Mr. Sinister.” Apparently, and all of this is still a rumor from the site, Essex offers Gambit $40 million to “recover a mysterious trunk that was stolen by the Boudreaux clan.”    RELATED: Simon Kinberg Talks Deadpool 2, Cable, And Gambit  Today Splash Report is doubling down...

New Details on JUSTICE LEAGUE Suggest a Lighter Tone Was Always the Plan

Last year saw the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film was one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year and did tremendous business at the box office opening weekend. Unfortunately, critical pummeling and bad word of mouth among fans in the weeks after slowed its success and stymied its earnings. Very much the same thing happened with Suicide Squad, which came out just a few months later in the year. One of the biggest complaints about the film for critics and fans alike was that it was just too bleak, too dark, too grim...

The DCEU is Changing Its Focus from Continuity to Individual Perfection

It appears that the DCEU is not what we all thought it is! With just a couple more months until Warner Bros. releases the epic-sized team-up film that will finally bring together Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and The Flash, we are all learning that plans from the executives are to somewhat discontinue the “Extended Universe” aspect of their future films. That is, the DCEU will become the DC … film universe. Speaking to Vulture, Diane Nelson and Geoff Johns, two of the heads at the topmost echelons of power for the DCEU said, “Our intention, certainly, moving...
