With the X-Men coming under the Disney umbrella, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 could be the perfect place to introduce a mutant: namely, Firestar. While Disney’s buyout of 20th Century Fox has excited many Marvel fans, others are worried about what will happen to the existing X-Men properties. For the next year or so, things should continue according to plan for both Fox and Marvel Studios, but beyond that the future is uncertain.
We know Disney wants to keep making Deadpool movies, but it’s pretty clear that the X-Men (and Fantastic Four) will join Marvel’s shared universe before long. Whether ...

HD copies of Thor: Ragnarok have been made available online due to an Apple glitch which allowed people who pre-ordered the flick to immediately gain access to the movie. Breathing life to a rather dull franchise, Taika Waititi approached the Chris Hemsworth-led film with the same brand of humor and vigor much like his past movies. The risk to pull a drastic change in scenery and vibe paid off as both critics and fans loved the flick resulting to perhaps more Marvel collaborations with the New Zealand director moving forward.
The error was apparently rooted in a miscommunication between Vudu and Apple — both ...

A stunning new trailer for Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time shows beautiful and dangerous worlds beyond our own. Adapted from the popular and beloved children’s science fiction book by Madeleine L’Engle, this newest trailer shows that the stunning worlds and creatures described in the book are being breathtakingly brought to life on the big screen.
While previous trailers have shown some of the fantastic worlds where the character Meg travels to in the company of her brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin – as have posters and TV spots – this trailer shows quite a bit of new footage. And while it provides plenty of chances to see some of the incredible worlds and creatures that the children encounter on their mission to rescue Meg and Charle Wallace’s father, it also shows a lot more of what Meg is experiencing at home. ...

Although we love Hollywood’s entertainment and glamour, things can get ugly when the cameras stop rolling. The act of casting a hothead or two celebrities who hate each other could potentially become a recipe for disaster. Dealing with people you aren’t very fond of for months, or even years, at a time for filming doesn’t seem fun. There are times when actors simply don’t mesh well together.
In other cases, the power struggle is between a director and an actor. Occasionally, it seems as if things will inevitably get out of hand, as tensions continually rise before inevitably exploding in to an all-out brawl. Unfortunately, we don’t always get to ...

Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s soon-to-debut superhero, The Wasp, will be equals and partners in Ant-Man And The Wasp. Despite not much press yet for the upcoming Marvel sequel – which makes sense given that Marvel Studios is still focused on next month’s Black Panther, followed by May’s Avengers: Infinity War – the Ant-Man sequel is expected to be very pivotal when it comes to the narrative direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward.
Last to roll out during Marvel’s 10th anniversary year, the sequel will see the return of director Peyton Reed at the helm for what we presume is another contained story much like ...

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has expressed interest in joining the Star Wars franchise. The galaxy far, far away has continued to expand in a major way ever since Lucasfilm was purchased by Disney in 2012. With both Episode IX and Rian Johnson’s new trilogy in active development, along with a litany of confirmed and rumored solo projects on the way, the Star Wars universe is bigger than ever. Given the series’ immense popularity and tremendous critical and financial success, it’s no shocker that there’s a laundry list of stars that are looking to hop on board the franchise.
Also known as The Clown Prince Of Crime and the Harlequin of Hate, The Joker has been the arch enemy of the The Batman since almost the very beginning of the Dark Knight Detective’s career. First appearing in Batman #1 in April 1940, The Joker was originally a comic figure no different than any other colorfully costumed criminal bank robber. In time, however, he would grow into a symbol of the ...

The prevailing wisdom among movie fans is that a big-screen blockbuster lives or dies based off the quality of its main villain. It’s not hard to see why – after all, if the baddie in question isn’t a memorable or credible threat, watching our heroes triumph over them isn’t particularly satisfying.
There are exceptions to this rule, of course. With the exception of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, the rogues gallery of the wildly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe have largely proven a disappointing bunch. But even so, the marketing machines behind virtually every blockbuster film – including those released by Marvel Studios – put a significant amount of effort into generating ...

The Harry Potter franchise is one of the most loved and successful series to be written and then adapted in to movies. J.K Rowling was able to create the story of a boy wizard that resonated with kids and teens all over the world. It’s a classic tale of destiny and personal discovery not just for our main character, but for his two best friends as well.
The books have been translated into 69 different languages and have sold an estimated 400 million copies, making the author, at one point in time, richer than the Queen of England. The series became so popular in Britain that book stores began releasing the newest editions ...

John Kani, who will reprise the role of T’Chaka in Black Panther, recalls how he and director Ryan Coogler decided on isiXhosa, a Nguni Bantu language and one of the official languages of South Africa, to become the fictional land of Wakanda’s official language. When we first met T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) back in Captain America: Civil War, he was merely a prince while his father fulfilled the job as the country’s King. Unfortunately, due to the tragic events that led to the nation’s leader dying, he was thrust into the spotlight and now is on the verge of proving that he is indeed worthy of the title. It won’t be easy, ...

Everybody gets into tiffs sometimes. It can be with family, coworkers, even best friends. They’re almost always totally stupid and easily resolved if we can put our pride behind. We’ve all been there.
But when celebrities get into spats with each other, the results can often spill into a greater arena: the public feud. Social media follows every juice drop so that what would be, in the normal world, a personal matter often turns into the modern version of Gladiator. We, the masses, watch as our chosen champions duke it out in the arena of public burns, verbal beatdowns, and yes, sometimes things get physical. Not “Russell ...

It’s not always the star that pays the price of fame. Sometimes, when an actor climbs the ladder of success, they have to leave their old lives on the ground. Unfortunately, that can include their non-celebrity spouses. After all, aren’t actors always saying that only other actors can truly understand the lifestyle?
Of course, starter marriages aren’t just for the rich and famous. In this day and age, it’s not at all uncommon for couples in any profession to get divorced. It’s especially prevalent among couples who married young. Not that normalcy makes it any easier on the people who get left behind. It can be ...

John Cena has entered talks to star in the Duke Nukem video game movie adaptation, with Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form’s Platinum Dunes banner producing. Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford confirmed that a film based on the Duke Nukem game series was in development at E3 last year, but the project has been on radio silence since then.
The Duke Nukem character is an amalgamation of 1980s musclehead action hero tropes who spends his days fighting off not so friendly extraterrestrials who have attacked and invaded earth. A film adaptation of the Duke Nukem franchise was first proposed back in the late 1990s ...

Christopher Nolan reflects on Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight on the 10th anniversary of the actor’s death. Ledger passed away on January 22, 2008, from a lethal combination of prescription drugs. His untimely death shocked the industry, especially those who worked alongside him on Nolan’s DC film, as well as all of his fans around the world. Although his death cast a shadow on the movie’s production, it actually ended up propelling The Dark Knight forward at the box office.
The Dark Knight was an unprecedented success, both critically and commercially. The film became the first superhero movie to gross more than ...

The X-Men franchise might be one of the first hits in the modern superhero genre, but it’s never had much visual flair. Known for dull colors and excessive black leather, the X-Men are the movie superheroes that just won’t dress up like superheroes.
Why do the X-Men movies rarely look like the X-Men comics? Other than X-Men: First Class and the cast’s bright yellow uniforms, the franchise rarely dresses characters in anything colorful, eye-catching, or remotely fun. However, X-Men fans aren’t ashamed of colorful visuals like the movies seem to be — and thankfully, many of them are great artists!
For this list, we’ve collected some of the most unique X-Men ...

Bethesda’s Fallout series has garnered a massive global fanbase due to its mix of post-apocalyptic action and vast worlds to explore. While story is delivered by talking to characters and various big events happening, the games really shine when the player moves off the beaten path and starts discovering things for themselves.
This means that no two playthroughs are exactly the same and it creates an addictive “water cooler” feel, as you can talk about an interesting bit of lore you discovered or the random creature nest you stumbled into.
Fans have come to expect rich and detailed worlds from Bethesda and it’s clear that a ton of effort has gone into meeting those high expectations.
As a result, some of these secret ...

Uncharted movie is being rewritten by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. writer-producer Rafe Judkins. The film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s acclaimed video game series of the same name has been in development for almost a decade. At first, the movie was conceived as a direct adaptation of the games with someone like Nathan Fillion or Mark Wahlberg playing the titular character, Nathan Drake. But then things changed when Tom Holland pitched an idea about an Uncharted prequel story.
