Captain America: Civil War to Kill this Character

With each and every Marvel, or any comic book movie for that matter, there are consistent ramblings about how someone major will die. This happened earlier this year with Avengers: Age Of Ultron; rumour had it that Black Widow will die, then Hawkeye, then others. In the end a character did die, indeed. Now it’s Captain America: Civil War who is to start killing off characters. A big problem lies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe–nobody ever dies, for good anyways. In The Avengers it was Coulson, then Loki, then Bucky Barnes, then Pepper Pots, then Nick Fury… the list goes endlessly.

With the subtitle for Captain America being Civil War, there cannot be such a conflict without any major losses, it needs to have atrocious death–or deaths, otherwise there will be a lack of tension and stakes. Now, it all depends on what one defines as major. A while back, it was announced that Black Panther–T’Challa–will be making his first appearance in the MCU. Apparently, his father, T’Chaka, will be in the film as well. It is precisely the latter who is allegedly going to axed.

In Age of Ultron we already caught a glimpse of the magical Wakanda with Ulysses Klaw (Andy Serkis), who is an enemy of T’Challa’s in the comics. What’s more, back in May, the same site, Heroic Holywood, also teased that Black Panther will be after the Winter Soldier. Is Bucky who kills, is framed for killing, T’Chaka? Only time will tell.

What is your opinion? Who do you think will die in Captain America: Civil War? Make sure to let us know in the comment section.

Benedict Cumberbatch and those Pesky Doctor Strange Rumors

At today’s Marvel event, Kevin Feige was asked about the casting, and who will play Doctor Strange. The question hints at the erroneous reports that Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast.

Feige’s response:

If it was confirmed, we would have announced it today.

 

Yesterday reports came out that Cumberbatch had been cast, while the original report says that only negotiations were occurring. Once again geek sites are putting the cart before the horse and trolling for clickbait.

We understand the difference between “negotiations” and “been cast.” When the casting is official, we will of course cover the news.

Stay tuned for more Marvel movie news!

Is this Deadpool Movie Test Footage?

The Deadpool movie has been one of the movies rumored to be announced for the last two San Diego Comic-Cons, only not to happen. The film is in development hell, with Ryan Reynolds often attached to star in the film. Over night, it looks like test footage leaked online, with Fox doing their best to pull it down from the web.

Here’s your chance to check it out what might be test footage from the film, and it sounds a hell of a lot like Ryan Reynolds.

While nothing is confirmed, this does sound like what Rob Liefeld has described previously, like in this video from Las Vegas Comic Con.

Update: We updated with a higher resolution video, and this is indeed confirmed.

Rumor of DC’s Movie Line-up. Take it With a Grain of Salt.

Justice League RevampThe rumor mill was churning today, with news being passed along like a bad game of telephone. A report today came out from Nikki Finke, former Deadline honcho, claims to list DC‘s upcoming movies through 2018.

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

 

 

 

 

There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.

Finke claims to late start to Batman V Superman is due to DC attempting to get this all settled down.

There’s numerous reasons I expect this all to be bullshit and click bait. One is, it ignores projects we’ve been told are being worked on, like the Justice League Dark film. The second big reason I don’t believe this is the history. It was about this time last year that it was rumored Cable, X-Force, Deadpool, Aquaman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman were all being announced as movies at SDCC 2013. We all know how that turned out.

While I’m sure DC is putting a plan together, I’ll believe this when I hear it directly from DC.

Updated: Charlie Cox is Marvel’s Daredevil

Charlie_CoxRumors are swirling tonight that British actor Charlie Cox has been cast as Matt Murdock/Daredevil for Marvel‘s upcoming show on Netflix. Variety has said that is has confirmed the rumor, though an official announcement hasn’t been made.

The actor is best known as Owen Slater from Boardwalk Empire, as well as Tristan Thorn in Stardust based on the story by Neil Gaiman.

The Daredevil show has had some ups and downs over the past few days as showrunner Drew Goddard stepped down, and was replaced by Stephen S. DeKnight, though that change was most likely due to Goddard’s commitment to the upcoming Sinister Six movie, based on Marvel characters.

The show based on the Marvel character is the first in a few series for Netflix based on Marvel properties. Others are based on Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and they’ll culminate into The Defenders.

Update: This is no longer a rumor. Marvel has confirmed the news.

Channing Tatum Confirmed as Gambit

At the X-Perience Global Tour Total Film got to speak to Lauren Shuler Donner, producer of the X-Men films, about what will be coming up. She mentions Deadpool, X-Force, and the return of Gambit, where she confirms that actor Channing Tatum has the role. This one is directly from her mouth, and  not some twisted words being passed around like a bad telephone game. Check out the video below:

Rumor: Ray Fisher to Play Cyborg in Batman/Superman

Variety is reporting that theater actor Ray Fisher will be fitted up with some future tech to play Cyborg in the upcoming Batman/Superman movie. That’s an addition of yet another DC Comics character to the cast which already includes Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, as well as Lex Luthor.

The movie is currently slated to be released May 6, 2016, but that might change as the film faces tought competition in Captain America 3. Expect more additions to the movie as DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. work to build their own cinematic universe.

Why Andrew Garfield Wasn’t at the Oscars

Andrew GarfieldLeading up to the Oscars, it was teased that actor Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man and its upcoming sequel, would be presenting a segment about heroes and inducting a new hero to the group. Come Oscar day, Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, hosted the segment and there was no induction of anyone. No information about why Garfield didn’t do it, or who this mysterious hero was, was given.

The New York Post’s Page Six stepped in today claiming that Garfield didn’t like the segment so threw a temper tantrum and refused to do it. The super hero induction was supposed to involve Batkid in a segment for Make a Wish.

Of course the internet went batshit with this news casting Garfield as a villain. But, according to all of those involved, this rumor wasn’t in fact true at all.

In statements to Huffington Post and Academy spokesman said:

Due to the nature of a live show, hard decisions sometimes must be made which require the Academy to cut segments due to the logistics of production. Andrew Garfield understood that his segment had to be omitted, and he drove to Disneyland on Monday to spend time with 5-year-old Miles Scott (Batkid) and his family.

Andrew Garfield’s representative Rupert Fowler released a statement about the situation to Huffington Post as well:

In full collaboration with the Academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. As some point overnight on Saturday / Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn’t work in the ceremony. They decided to pull it — Andrew and Miles were equally upset. The producers arranged for Miles and his family to visit Disneyland on Monday and Andrew drove down to visit them and to bring Miles a personal gift. Andrew did the right thing for Batkid and anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying.

Sadly, Huffington Post felt this merited an Update as opposed to a full Retraction, cause you know the whole made up part would maybe merit that.

Garfield has been seen shooting hoops with local kids while filming the latest Spider-Man movie… so I tend to believe the Academy’s take on it, though it doesn’t explain why Garfield still didn’t present the segment.

The New Fantastic Four Revealed

After months of speculation, it looks the cast of the rebooted Fantastic Four movie from Fox has been decided…. and it’s interesting. Numerous reputable sites are reporting that Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell will star in the project that reboots the Marvel superheroes with Josh Trank directing. The movie will hit theaters on June 19, 2015.

Michael B. Jordan is the longest rumored cast member and has been a star on the rise since his breakthrough performance in Fruitville Station, for which he received numerous award consideration. Other notable roles include The Wire, All My Children, Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Chronicle. He also voiced Cyborg/Victor Stone for DC’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. He’s currently in theaters for That Awkward Moment. He’ll be flaming on as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch. Chronicle was directed by Josh Trank, who is also directing this reboot.

Miles Teller will be stretching his acting chops as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic (though IMDB lists it as Reid Richards). He too is currently on screen in That Awkward Moment with Jordan. Notable roles include Footloose, Project X and the upcoming Divergent. He’s also rumored to be playing the real life actor and one half of the Blues Brothers Dan Aykroyd in an untitled John Belushi project.

Kate Mara can currently be seen in House of Cards, but is also known for the television shows Nip/Tuck, Jack & Bobby, 24, Entourage, American Horror Story and TRON: Uprising. Highlight from her movie career includes We Are Marshall, Shooter, 127 Hours and she even had a role in Iron Man 2 as a U.S. Marshal. She’ll be playing Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman.

Jamie Bell plays the rocky Ben Grimm/The Thing. His more notable roles include Billy Elliot, Jumper, Snowpiercer (another graphic novel turned movie) and most notably the voice of Tintin in The Adventures of Tintin and rumored upcoming sequel.

The casting has definitely confused many fans and has so far resulted in a general negative response. The movie will be based more on the Ultimate Fantastic Four series as opposed to Marvel’s 616 Fantastic Four.

Can We Expect Iron Man in Guardians of the Galaxy?

The toys that we can expect from Hasbro for Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy are out and they give us a hint as to what we might expect. And maybe they spoil things a bit too. Part of Hasbro’s release is a “legends” line of figures that features the characters you’d expect from the team, Nova… and Iron Man?

Iron Man did join the Guardians as part of Brian Michael Bendis’ comic run, so it’s possible he’s included here due to that, but the promotional text reads:

Kids and fans can collect their favorite characters from MARVEL’S newest film MARVEL’S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY in this INFINITE SERIES LEGENDS assortment. These impressive 6-inch scale figures feature detailed articulation and detailed sculpting and deco. Figures include STAR LORD, ROCKET RACCOON and more. Collect all six figures to build the GROOT Build-A-Figure! Each figure sold separately.

If the figures are based on the movie… and Iron Man is included… can we expect a cameo from him? It’d be an easy way to tie-in this film to the already existing Marvel movie universe and this is a rumor that has existed for some time.

No matter what, it looks like a nice figure to add to anyone’s toy collection. Check out the figure below.
