2016 really is the year for super-powered characters engaging in epic battles: Following Batman vs. Superman and Captain America vs. Iron Man, X-Men: Apocalypse will deliver the next super-fight, as Professor Xavier & Co. rally to stop a formidable new threat. Oscar Isaac’s titular villain won’t be riding solo, as he’ll have some help from four chosen mutant companions, including Michael Fassbender’s Magneto — featured above in a new video that briefly teases his arc.
It’s hard to know what to expect from Universal’s ambitious new monster movie franchise, which will reboot many of the studio’s iconic boogeymen in one shared universe of films. And we probably won’t have a decent idea about what the studio is up to until next summer, when The Mummy hits theaters. But thanks to Russell Crowe, we have some indication of what Alex Kurtzman is planning for his reboot, which also stars Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Marvel’s Kevin Feige said that the studio will probably reveal who’s directing and starring in the Captain Marvel solo film sometime this summer, or by fall at the latest. What followed was a particularly interesting scoop suggesting that the director and lead actor being eyed for the project both share the same first name, which kicked off a bunch of hopeful speculation among fans. Today brings a small but interesting piece of info to add some fuel that particular rumor mill.
With the release of a new Marvel film comes an influx of Marvel news, and in addition to updates on Infinity War, Captain Marvel and that long-awaited Black Widow solo movie, we have a teensy bit of casting news. Sharon Stone says she’s signed on to appear in an upcoming MCU movie, and though she’s (obviously) not at liberty to reveal the film or her role in it, the actress’ choice of words may very well hold a clue.
It was reported last month that Charlize Theron was eyeing a potential reunion with the Young Adult team of Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody for another project. Although the prospect was incredibly exciting, nothing had yet been confirmed until today, and we have some new details about the upcoming comedy as Theron has officially signed on for the film.
Earlier this week, a new poll revealed that the MCU character fans most want to see in a standalone film is — unsurprisingly, still — Black Widow. Phase 3 is set to conclude in 2019 with Avengers: Infinity War (which will soon undergo a title change), and the only film Kevin Feige has confirmed for Phase 4 so far is Guardians of the Galaxy 3 (which may or may not be directed by James Gunn). And although he doesn’t 100-percent-confirm it here, Feige presents a Black Widow solo movie as a very real possibility for Phase 4.
In another bit of news that lends credence to the rumors of tension between Zack Snyder and Warner Bros., Ben Affleck has been officially promoted from mere Batman to Executive Producer-Man on Justice League. Snyder is currently in production on the film in London, having begun less than two weeks after Patty Jenkins wrapped principal production on Wonder Woman.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot won’t be the only Ghostbusters movie hitting theaters this summer. If you’re itching to revisit Ivan Reitman’s 1984 comedy classic, then you might want to wait until June, when the original Ghostbusters returns to the big screen. The special re-release honors both the 32nd anniversary (sure, why not) of the film, as well as the release of Feig’s reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
It’s been a little quiet on the Ghostbusters front in the last few weeks, but Sony has unveiled some colorful new banners featuring three of the characters from Paul Feig’s upcoming film. Melissa McCarthy is strangely absent, but Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig each get their very own promo image, blasting away with their cool new proton packs.
By now you know pretty much every mutant that’s set to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, from returning characters like Mystique and Magneto to the younger versions of favorites like Jean Grey and Cyclops. But there’s still plenty we don’t know about, and director Bryan Singer’s latest photo update teases the return of a mutant we’ve seen on the big screen before — like Deadpool, this one also made his debut in the unfortunate X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Following recent confirmation of the official title and logo for Spider-Man: Homecoming, casting is starting to really come together on the highly-anticipated reboot, which marks a collaborative effort between Sony and Marvel. As Tom Holland prepares to make his debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War, another actor has joined the cast of the web-slinger’s forthcoming solo film, though her specific part remains a bit mysterious.
First announced last year, the remake / reboot of Jumanji based on the classic book-turned-adventure film starring Robin Williams seemed like a baffling idea. What could possibly make the average movie-goer excited about this remake? A great cast, for starters, and it looks like we might get just that as everyone’s new favorite odd comedic coupling are in talks to star in the new Jumanji movie.
