It’s always interesting to see which bits of the source material superhero movies choose to form their story. In the case of Black Panther, the writers had a wealth of recent storylines to draw from, and it looks like at least parts of the movie will dip a toe into Ta-Nehisi Coates, Roxane Gay, and Yona Harvey’s World of Wakanda spinoff series — namely, the awesome gay female warrior stuff.
A couple weeks ago, when Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Han Solo spinoff was going to be about “How Han got his name,” the internet, understandably, went a little wobbly. Is Han Solo not Han Solo’s name?? What was his name before he was Han Solo?? What does it all MEAN??? Well, we can all relax now, because what looked like a mysterious plot detail was actually just a poorly-chosen turn of phrase.
Well, it looks like action star Dolph Lundgren is stepping back into the world of DC Comics — this time into a big superhero tentpole. Lundgren has just joined the cast of James Wan’s Aquaman as the dastardly King Nereus.
There was a ton of speculation about who would be playing the much-hyped Cable in Deadpool 2, and as of today, we finally know it’s Josh Brolin. And while that’s fantastic news, it’s also a little confusing for those of us who have been following the whole Avengers: Infinity War saga: Josh Brolin is also playing Thanos in the upcoming Avengers movies.
When it comes to horror movies, it’s always interesting to learn how the moviemakers came up with their endings — especially endings as ambiguously terrifying as that of The Blair Witch Project. An ending can make or break a horror movie, and the directors recently revealed how they thought up theirs, as well as all the alternate ones they shot which were a lot weirder, but maybe less scary.
Back in 2015, Activision created Activision Blizzard Studios, which was in charge of coming up with ideas for how to turn their “vast library of intellectual property” into films and TV shows. It’s an ambitious undertaking, given the vast amount of video game content they have at their disposal, and now, after almost two years, a team of writers has planned out a Call of Duty cinematic universe.
Before signing on for Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins was almost Marvel’s first female director — for Thor: The Dark World. Citing universal uh-oh phrase “creative differences,” Jenkins left that project and later made a deal with Warner Bros. for Wonder Woman. But that doesn’t mean all of her Thor plans have been consigned to the dust of history.
Director Niki Caro was mysterious as the dark side of the moon about whether or not Disney’s new live-action Mulan movie was going to feature some of the classic songs from the original cartoon. At first, it seemed like there were no musical numbers planned for the movie, but, after some reflection, Caro has revealed that yes, not to worry, the new movie will have music.
The Guardians of the Galaxy are heroes, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the galaxy isn‘t out to get them. Like, all the time. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sees our favorite spacefaring miscreants go up against an evil golden woman, Peter Quill’s former allies the ravagers, and a giant tentacle beast, amongst probably a host of other things. As the new TV spot says: the hits keep coming.
The ending of Alien — one of the scariest movies of all time — isn’t exactly happy, but at least one of the members of the Nostromo crew survives. Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley lives to fight another day, and another alien, but the original ending that Ridley Scott suggested wasn’t nearly as upbeat.
Rogue One audiences were somewhat surprised at the theater when the movie returned us to planet Mustafar for one scene between Sith Lord Darth Vader and Director Orson Krennic. Vader floats inside his bacta tank, soaking up nutrients while contemplating the Rebels’ demise from the security of his Barad-dûr-like fortress of evil. It’s a fun image, and one that we might see again. But probably minus Vader.
Though it felt kind of wrong, when Carrie Fisher died in December a lot of us wondered how the Star Wars movies would weather her loss. Had she finished shooting all her scenes? (She had, at least for Episode 8.) How integral to the plot of Episodes 8 and 9 was Leia going to be? Would the story need to be changed to accommodate for her absence? Some wondered if her likeness would be Tarkin’d onto a body stand-in for the final movie, which felt wrong even to think about. (It’s not happening, thankfully.) Lucasfilm has a lot to consider after losing one of its biggest stars, but it sounds like none of The Last Jedi is going to be changed because of her death.
