Everyone, everyone wants in on extended universes. Thus far, I’d say only Marvel has pulled one off, though DC seems to be rallying. Others have tried, preemptively, to announce their own universes, then fallen into a pile of their own feces-pies. I’m looking at you, Dark Universe. So it makes sense that Fox is looking to establish a slate of films, but goddamn if I don’t think they may be jumping the gun.
What fresh hell is this. Why so much interesting news today? Wasn’t SDCC like two days ago? Oh, you say it isn’t interesting to you. Hmm. I see. Head nod. Then I draw the Infinity Gauntlet, and punch you in the sternum. I don’t even know what I’m typing anymore. James Gunn is more interesting than me. Hit the jump to check out his funky fresh words regarding Thanos.
Oh yeah, there is a Doctor Strange! movie afoot. It had completely slipped my mind. Well, it is coming in Marvel Phase Something Such. Don’t you worry your pretty little heads. We haven’t heard much about the flick, but now casting rumors are a-percolating. The latest (or first?) rumors are centered around Justin Theroux.
I love me some Chris Pratt, almost exclusively due to his performances in Parks & Rec. That said, he was good enough in Zero Dark Thirty, and apparently he is in Billy Beaner is Really Smartz. So him being cast as the lead in Guardians of the Galaxy is officially marks the moment where I begin getting excited for the flick.
If this image and the trailers are any indications, Tony Stark is going to get his ass flayed in this third Iron Guy film. Good! Yeah! Put the stink on Anthony, and demand that he respond to it. Right?
Suppose I’m just dropping Marky Boy these days. How exactly can one create a cohesive Marvel Universe over at Fox when Marvel retains the majority of the film rights? You can’t, really! What you can do is squeeze every ounce of juice out of the titles and characters that you do own. Right?
Here is like a million, zillion set photos from some big fight currently being filmed for Thor: The Dark World. Don’t be a shocked asshole, we both know there are spoilers ahead.
Ant-Man! So real it has its own set of test footage. You pumped? Jacked? Pumped and jacked?
The Fantastic Four reboot that is being helmed by Josh Trank has landed itself a writer by the name of Jeremy Slater. I am not familiar with this lad.
I love me some Jessica Biel. Don’t get me wrong. It’s just that it’s going to take more than her to get me stoked for The Logan Guy.
