Brie Larson’s first big solo outing in the MCU is undergoing a little shake-up behind the scenes. Marvel has reportedly hired a new screenwriter for Captain Marvel, the ’90s-set superhero film that will introduce audiences to the eponymous hero. And they could do a lot worse than a scribe whose credits include upcoming projects like the Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander, as well as the all-female DC villains team-up Gotham City Sirens.
It looks like Ben Affleck’s Bat-days may be numbered — and more than you might think. Not only is the actor unlikely to appear in The Batman, but a new report reveals that he’s on the verge of exiting the DCEU entirely. The news comes as not much of a shock following Affleck’s departure from the helm of the upcoming solo movie, for which he was replaced by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.
(Extremely Staind voice) It’s been a while…since we last heard John Boyega’s British accent, so it’s pretty wonderful to hear it again in the first teaser for Pacific Rim Uprising. You can catch a brief sneak peek of the Star Wars actor gearing up to report for duty in the special promo for the upcoming sequel, which debuted online following its premiere earlier today at Comic-Con.
It’s a big day for all kinds of new images and details from several highly-anticipated films, and you have Comic-Con to thank for most of it — well, not it as in It, the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel, which is set to hit theaters in September. As we inch closer to the release date, four new images have debuted online, giving us another look at the film’s young ensemble cast as they head into the heart of evil, aka Pennywise’s lair.
Comic-Con 2017 is right around the corner, and one of the films we’re hoping to see at the big 20th Century Fox panel in Hall H is The New Mutants, the studio’s next X-Men spinoff. We’re not banking on seeing any actual footage from the film itself, however, since it officially went into production today — as evidenced by a photo from director Josh Boone, who received a pretty funny gag gift to mark the occasion.
Although X-Men: Apocalypse and the latest Fantastic Four reboot were fairly notable disappointments for 20th Century Fox, the studio is doing pretty, pretty, prett-ay good in the Marvel department. Thanks to the critical and commercial success of Deadpool and Logan, Fox’s X-universe has been revitalized, and even if the next X-Men movie underperforms, they still have New Mutants, X-Force and Deadpool 2 on the way — and it looks as though that may be the tip of the iceberg.
What we have here is a classic good news / bad news situation. First, the bad: Rosario Dawson has parted ways with New Mutants, Josh Boone’s highly-anticipated X-Men spinoff. But before you go blasting that sad trombone, here’s the good: She’ll be replaced by Brazilian actress and Queen of the South star Alice Braga. See? Everything works out.
How about another piece of Avengers: Infinity War news? Directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared a cryptic new photo from the set of the upcoming super-sequel, and, as with most pics posted to their shared (and previously somewhat secret) Twitter account, this one was posted without a caption — leaving us to puzzle over exactly what we’re looking at. We have a sneaking suspicion we’ve seen this place before, just maybe not from the outside.
At this point, it might be more productive (and would probably take less time) to list all the Marvel stars that won’t be in Avengers: Infinity War. If you thought Captain America: Civil War (so much WAR) was stacked with talent, the third Avengers film is primed to blow that number out of the water with the biggest super-ensemble yet. And today brings yet another name into the fold as The Walking Dead star and MCU newcomer Danai Gurira has joined the roster.
Marvel and Sony have already set a 2019 release date for the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters in just a few weeks. But as you probably suspected, that momentous collaboration won’t end with two films, as Tom Holland himself has confirmed Marvel’s — totally not shocking at all — plans for a complete Spidey trilogy. It may be the least surprising news you read all day, but it’s still comforting to know that Spider-Man is back in good hands (for at least three films and a few MCU appearances, anyway).
After months of rumors, shortlists and speculation, Josh Brolin seemingly swooped in from out of left field to take the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. He’s definitely got that gruff attitude on lock, which should make him the perfect foil for Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth, but there’s still quite a bit of work to be done to get Brolin ready for the highly-anticipated sequel. Judging by his Instagram posts, the transformation has officially begun.
