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.

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.

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.
