Joe Carnahan is reported to be taking on writing and directing duties, instead of Alexandre Aja, for an adaptation of the graphic novel series, Undying Love.
On top of the news that Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would reprise their iconic turns as the veteran Professor X and Magneto in the X-Men: First Cass sequel, Days of Future Past, comes the news that another equally iconic mutant performer could be joining the X-panding cast.
Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class catapulted us back to a time when Professor Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr (later known by his more flashy moniker, Magneto) were just a pair of young mutants making their way in the world, co-operating and collaborating, while gradually developing those familiar opposing views on mutant rights that we have become so accustomed to. Played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender respectively, their characters were revised and rejuvenated by Vaughn's interpretation, and the performances of the leading pair.
So, with plans afoot for a sequel to First Class - Fassbender and McAvoy reattached to star; X-Men veteran Bryan Singer on board to direct; and Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Jason Flemyng among the other reprisals - the biggest news of all has come in the form of two Knights of the British Empire.

The explosive superhero caper Man of Steel will make an impact worldwide early next year when its craze sweeps through the streets and the film releases in thousands of avid markets.

Chosen to play Superman in this rendering is the big and brolic Henry Cavill, who rushes the role with chiselled arms and stalwart poise. The film will be thrust upon fans in three different formats; 2D, 3D, and IMAX, that will allowviewers to feel every theatrical punch.
It appears that jail-bird Wesley Snipes was a bit of a pre-madonna on the set of Blade Trinity. Accordingly to Patton Oswalt, who also starred in the film, Snipes apparently tried to choke out director David S. Goyer, smoked weed all day and stayed in character for the entire shoot.
Would you have taken Bane seriously if he looked like The Gimp from Pulp Fiction? I think he looked badass in The Dark Knight Rises, but he wasn't always going to look that way. On the forthcoming Blu Ray/DVD we can see some of the concept designs surrounding his mask.
It’s no secret that big blockbusters, in particular those of the sci-fi/comic book persuasion, get side-swiped in the awards season in favour of more “out there” efforts or dramatic pieces – it’s not entirely fair and it’s not cool, but it is what it is.
An extensive series of set pictures have hit the net revealing Chris Hemsworth's Thor doing battle with the villainous race of Dark Elves and their leader, Malekith, played by Christopher Eccleston.
