Brie Larson Talks What Captain Marvel Means To Her

As far as female superheroes go, DC has Marvel beat. The DCEU introduces the first female solo film in this Summer with “Wonder Woman”, while “Captain Marvel” is still a long way off. It doesn’t even have a director attached yet. But that film’s star, Brie Larson, is already getting into the mindset of herContinue Reading

John Wick Director Will Take On Deadpool 2

As we reported previously, “Deadpool” director Tim Miller decided to drop out of the sequel due to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. The question then naturally was, who’d take his place?

Green Hornet To Be Rebooted Under The Accountant Director

Man, 2011’s big screen remake of “The Green Hornet” was one tragic misfire.

But anyone who’sContinue Reading

The Bourne Identity Director To Helm Justice League Dark

Well, colour me surprised. I didn’t think Warner Bros was proceeding with a “Justice League Dark” movie. What with all the (misguided) outrage over the DCEU being “too dark”. But now, not only is the adaptation still on, the studio has secured a director for it. Today, Variety ended months of speculation over the fateContinue Reading

Comicbook Series The Monolith To Get Big Screen Adaptation

I’ve not heard of comicbook series “The Monolith”, but apparently DC Comics had a run of 12 issues back in 2004. The comic was originally under the Paperfilms Inc. banner, created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray. Looks like it didn’t go unnoticed by Hollywood. Today, The Hollywood Reporter scooped the news that Lionsgate isContinue Reading
