With more and more of the cast for X-Men: Days of Future Past being confirmed, it seemed that director Bryan Singer was hell-bent on getting the entire original cast to return. One member who has so far not been confirmed is Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe/Storm. That could be about to change though, as Shadow & Act have recently spoken to her regarding the subject.
The hype for Iron Man 3 is soaring like it's got several repulsors attached to it, and has been further propelled by Disney releasing several hi-res images.
You could be forgiven if, when hearing of a new comic book film adaptation, your mind leapt to the super hero icons of popular culture; Batman, Spider-Man, The Avengers, they litter our screens like they litter the streets in promotional advertising and disused packaging. The hero of the Button Man series, however, has no flashy costume with which to hide behind.
In an upcoming DreamWorks feature, Nicolas Winding Refn will direct the tale of mercenary assassin, Harry Exton, trapped in a twisted game where he and others like him are paid to kill each other by anonymous "Voices", gambling on the outcome.
Set pics from Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man continue to find their way to us unabated Now we have some more pics of Spidey in action, as well the first pic of Sally Field as Aunt May.
With the Batman film series reaching its end with The Dark Knight Rises last year, and Harry Potter also finishing up, Warner Brothers is in desperate of a new tent pole to hang their summers on. Justice League is currently mired in development hell and Justice League Dark is only in the very early stages.
That leaves us with one hope, and that hope is Man of Steel, Zach Snyder's take on the story of Kryptonian orphan Superman. There is a lot riding on this, as not only has it been 7 years since Superman Returns, but the WB need to prove they can make a decent superhero film that doesn't include a winged vigilante after 2011's sadly disappointing Green Lantern.
Comic book movies are a very familiar part of our cinematic intake nowadays, and I have no issue with that at all. What self-respecting geek would? Well, perhaps those few of us who sat through the Catwoman movie or Green Lantern might have a bit of a moan, to be fair.
While a lot of big stories from the canon of legendary comics characters are being used as inspiration for big screen adventures (Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, Loki and the Chitauri in The Avengers, the endless retreads of Spider-man's early years, etc), there are some iconic stories which you can pretty much be sure you'll never see hit cinemas.
This fan-made trailer for a Wonder Woman movie in which our favourite Amazon faces off against nazis is quite brilliant. The guys at Robot 6/Comic Book Resources posted about it and it's got chins wagging throughout fandom. In fact, it walks all over that failed Wonder Woman pilot episode which was floated a while back. Made by stuntman/director Jesse V. Johnson, the trailer stars Nina Bergman as Wonder Woman and is far better than you may expect.
We've seen a series of new character posters lately from Marvel regarding their next release, Iron Man 3, which will be kicking off phase 2 of their Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now we're getting to the good stuff, with the release of another poster. Before you cry "Just another poster?" check it out. It's a doozy.
Well, at least one DC based team-up movie is heading along nicely.
Whilst promoting Mama, Guillermo del Toro (Executive Producer) spoke about his work on Justice League Dark (formerly known as Heaven Sent).
The release of a picture showing Peter Parker's new duds yesterday makes a lot of sense now, as today we've seen the first pics taken while filming of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes place in New York.
