Fantastic Four to be “darker” and “nothing like the originals” says Vaughn

Since the oddly age inappropriate cast was revealed and some surprisingly racist backlash against the casting of Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch reared its ugly head (let’s be perfectly honest eh?) we've been waiting for more details on the upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four which is due to hit theaters in June of 2015. In an interview with Empire magazine discussing the film, producer Matthew Vaughn spilled on some details about what we can expect to see regarding not only Read more [...]

Daredevil and Other Marvel Heroes Headed to Netflix

We super geeks love nothing more than super news about our favourite super heroes, right? That’s why when the announcement came this morning that Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios would partner up with US content streaming provider Netflix to produce not one, but four TV series, I may have been so excited that I inadvertently impregnated my jeans. (Side note, I do hope the resulting child isn't just a pair of legs with denim for skin, I’m not prepared for such a big life challenge.) These Read more [...]

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Officially On for Avengers: Age of Ultron

So it’d been rumoured since late July that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was cast as Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he hasn’t exactly been quiet about it. But until now it hadn’t been official, finally though, The Wrap is reporting that Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is officially set to play Pietro "Quicksilver" Maximoff in Joss Whedon's 2015 sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. Oddly enough, Taylor-Johnson won’t be the only one playing the speedster on the big screen. His Kick-Ass Read more [...]

When Will Marvel Announce Their Phase 3 Film Slate?

Earlier this year Marvel Studios revealed the date for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man as July 31, 2015 but their plans beyond Ant-Man are somewhat vague. Besides the obvious sequels in the Captain America and Thor solo franchises there are still no definitive plans for a Black Widow solo film or a continuation for Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, a real shame as I think they’re both some of the most interesting characters on the Avengers roster by far. There is however plans to get characters such as Doctor Read more [...]

MARVEL is Figuring Out What to Do With Daredevil

Marvel Studios has unquestionably become a Hollywood force to be reckoned with having achieved what no one ever thought they could, assembling the Avengers for the big screen! Last year though, Marvel re-acquired characters that it had sold off to other studios over a decade ago which had been misused to make terrible abortions disguised as films, and one of those characters is fan-boy favourite Daredevil. And with Marvel’s successful streak of movies, and Daredevil’s recent surge in popularity Read more [...]

Stuff of Legend. Stop. Thumber Time.

‘The Stuff of Legend’ moving forward at Disney?

While the genres of horror and children’s entertainment aren't exactly best buds, when done the right way as we've seen with directors Tim Burton and Henry Selick or author Neil Gaiman, they go together like bacon and eggs. Being the biggest genre fan on Earth (big call, I know!) you can imagine my pants tightening delight when I read that Walt Disney Pictures has just made a deal to produce a big screen animated adaptation of the 2009 graphic novel series The Stuff of Legend from Th3rd Read more [...]
