It doesn’t take a Stephen King super-fan to spot the two major easter eggs in the first trailer for The Dark Tower, but as Constant Readers (King’s nickname for his loyal fanbase) can tell you, that’s probably just the tip of the iceberg. King’s epic novel series is, among other things, a riveting piece of meta-fiction that ties all of his works (and worlds) together, so it’s inevitable that this summer’s highly-anticipated film adaptation will have more than a few easter eggs for casual fans and Constant Readers alike to discover — and King himself is giving you a head start.
Early reactions to Wonder Woman hit the internet last week, with many critics hailing it as the best DCEU film yet, so when recent reports suggested that the studio is already plotting a sequel, it had us feeling even more optimistic for WB’s first female superhero adventure...
Just before Suicide Squad hit theaters, there were reports that Warner Bros. had created their own competing cut of of the film, suggesting that director David Ayer’s vision had been compromised by studio interference. If the latest rumor is to be believed, then Justice League might be experiencing similar turbulence, as a new report claims that Zack Snyder’s superhero team-up film has undergone extensive reshoots, with even more on the horizon.
After more than a year of rumors, hints and reports, Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams have officially joined the cast of New Mutants, one of a few upcoming projects set within the X-Men universe. The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone has long been attached to helm the project, teasing the Game of Thrones star’s potential involvement as recently as February. It’s another big step forward for New Mutants, which joins X-Force and Channing Tatum’s on again / off again Gambit movie in Fox’s lineup of forthcoming mutant spinoffs.
One of the things that will (hopefully) set Spider-Man: Homecoming apart from Sony’s previous reboot is the stronger emphasis on Peter Parker’s high school experience — something the filmmakers have touted from the beginning with comparisons to the classic teen films of John Hughes. Most of the trailers and photos we’ve seen so far have shown Tom Holland’s protagonist in Spidey-mode, but a new batch of images have surfaced that give us a better look at Peter Parker as a totally normal high school kid.
There are a few standouts in the Justice League trailer (aside from Zack Snyder’s glaring obsession with making audiences feel like they’re trapped in a 2001 NuMetal music video): Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen / The Flash, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman — all of whom inject the trailer with enough personality to make up for Ben Affleck’s affectless Batman. Momoa’s humorously gruff take on Aquaman is a pleasant surprise, and it’s really piqued our interest in his upcoming solo film from director James Wan, which has officially begun production.
Although Warner Bros. released a handful of TV spots late last week, there’s some concern among fans about the lack of promotion for Wonder Woman, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. In comparison to other big-budget blockbusters (and superhero films in particular), the marketing for Wonder Woman has been relatively low-key — strange, since it’s such a highly-anticipated summer release for several reasons, not the least of which is that it’s the first solo female superhero film in over a decade.
It’s been three years since the first Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, and according to James Gunn, not a single fan has been able to find that one super-obscure easter egg — though some have gotten pretty close. (And if you think Gunn’s pulling your chain, he offered $100,000 to anyone who could prove it doesn’t exist.) With the sequel hitting theaters next week, Gunn’s at it again, confirming that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 contains another one of those pesky, cleverly-concealed easter eggs, and he’s not giving you any hints.
Following their small screen success with Preacher, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are setting their sights on another comic-series, but this time they’re taking it to the big screen. The creative duo will write and direct a film adaptation of Invincible, based on the comic-book series by Robert Kirkman, best known as the creator of the series that inspired that other popular AMC TV show.
Casting for Deadpool 2 is well underway, and with Atlanta star Zazie Beetz recently signing on to play Domino, one of two major roles has now been filled. And while Cable isn’t the only other new character joining the Merc With the Mouth for his upcoming sequel, he is arguably the most important piece of the casting puzzle given the larger role he’ll be playing in this corner of the mutant universe. According to the film’s writers, we’ll learn who’s playing Cable (as well as a few other “obscure” mutant characters) in Deadpool 2 “very soon.”
While we wait for the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which should be arriving in the next couple of months (more on that in a minute), some footage was recently screened for Disney shareholders. That footage won’t be released online, but one reporter in attendance was kind enough to share a few interesting details — it’s not much, but it should keep your spirits up until the first trailer debuts.
The latest issue of EW offers our first official look at the cast of Thor: Rangarok, and it’s certainly different — which actually might be a pretty good thing. The previous two films are widely considered lesser MCU entries, but with Taika Waititi behind the camera and promising a more humorous god of thunder, we’re looking forward to seeing a different side of Thor. That side is definitely present on this magazine cover, which also features Cate Blanchett as the villainous Hela and Tessa Thompson as the warrior Valkyrie.
