Rumour X-Men/Fantataic Four crossover due in 2018.

IMG_5551.JPG

The very reliable Latino-Review are reporting the X-Men may team up with The Fantastic Four in a cross-over in 2018. 
But before that can happen, the Fantastic Four reboot and its sequel (due in 2017) have to make a huge amount at the box office. X-Men: Apocalypse also needs to make a respectable amount, which is a safe bet when you look how well Days of Future Past did.
So a lot of things need to align before that can happen, but given that every single studio wants an Avengers, I would say 2018 is looking pretty good for a crossover. 

The possibility alone has me excited. 

Tom Holland cast as Spider-Man

IMG_5547.JPG

After months of rumours and speculation, British actor Tom Holland has been cast by Marvel and Sony as the new Peter Parker. 
It wasn’t mentioned in the official press release, but it is thought that the 19-year old actor will make his debut in Captain America: Civil War. 

After that, Holland will be appearing in various Marvel films as well as additional solo projects, that will be followed in 2017 with a solo film which will be directed by Jon Watts. Like Holland, Watts is someone whom I’m not familiar with. But, I’m sure both will be great. 

Ghostbusters filming pics

Filming started yesterday on Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. It’s shooting in Boston, which is standing in for New York.

They’re filming outside, so with that comes some phone pictures from the public. We now  have our first look at three of the four leads: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon.

Here is the rumoured plot synopsis:

“Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia.

Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.”

Review-Entourage

Before we begin, It’s worth noting that the Entourage movie isn’t made for critics, it isn’t made for the general public. It’s made for the Entourage fans. I was a huge fan of the HBO show that begat this. When the show ended in 2011, I felt a void in my heart that could only be filled by a follow up.

The movie picks up an unspecified amount of time after the TV series, it could be two weeks, it could be two months. Vince is now freshly divorced after a nine day marriage and his former agent is now a high-flying studio boss, who has the perfect role in mind for Vince.
There’s just one catch, Vince wants to direct, can Vince direct? It doesn’t matter. In fact the overall plot of the movie doesn’t really matter, what’s important is that the boys are back in town.

If I have one criticism it’s that it doesn’t feel like a film, it feels like four episodes of the TV series stitches together, but that is also the fun of it. It doesn’t feel like just another big screen adaptation of a successful series.

If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll love this, if you’ve never seen the series then there’s probably nothing here for you.

Rupert Wyatt directing Gambit

IMG_5454.PNG

Entertainment Weekly are reporting that Rupert Wyatt will be helming the Gambit movie. Wyatt is probably best known for his work on Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. 
Remy LeBeau made his first film appearance in the now defunct X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Taylor Kitsh is out and the part will now be played by Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum. 
Tatum will also serve as a producer for the film along with Reid Carolin, Lauren, Simon Kinberg and, Schuler Donner. 

Since comic book nerds got so outraged by the casting of Wolverine in 1999, I hold of judging any X-Men casting until I’ve seen it.  
Gambit is out in the UK on 7 October 2016.

Trailer-Man from U.N.C.L.E

image004

An excellent new trailer has been released for the upcoming man from U.N.C.L.E. It’s a remale of a popular TV series of the same name. I’m excited for this,  although I’ve heard of it, I’ve not seen the original series but this movie seriously seems like a lot of fun.

Here’s the synopsis:

Based on the hugely popular 60’s TV series, man from U.N.C.L.E is set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin.  Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.  The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

 

Jon Bernthal cast as The Punisher 

IMG_5401.JPG

Rumors have been circulating for a while now, about The Punisher joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. More recently we heard that Frank Castle would appear in Daredevil, and now it’s been confirmed! Marvel announced yesterday that they’ve cast The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal in the role for series 2. 
Personally, I’ve enjoyed the three previous Punisher movies (yes, even the one with Dolph). 

I think Bernthal is a great choice.

Marvel said:

“Jon Bernthal brings an unmatched intensity to every role he takes on, with a potent blend of power, motivation and vulnerability that will connect with audiences. Castle’s appearance will bring dramatic changes to the world of Matt Murdock and nothing will be the same.”

I’ve binged the entire first series twice now and I can’t wait for series 2.
