X-23 Won't Return in an X-Men Movie Crossover?

34 minutes ago

20th Century Fox's Logan marked the final performances for both Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, but it also introduced a new character into this universe, the fan favorite X-23, played by newcomer Dafne Keen. During a Q&A session following a recent screening of the black and white version of Logan, dubbed Logan Noir, director James Mangold said he would be "shocked" if the studio didn't develop the character further, hinting that she could surface in another X-Men movie down the road. However, producer Hutch Parker thinks that isn't exactly the case, hinting that it's more likely she will get her own movie, rather than appear in a different X-Men movie. Here's what he had to say.

"I don't know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we've been talking about, it's not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It's looking at that character, »

Ant-Man Vs. Superman: Who Wins?

1 hour ago

A quantum physicist is making the bold claim that Ant-Man could easily defeat the Man of Steel. The news comes from the same Inverse article where quantum physicist Dr. Spiros Michalakis mentions that the Quantum Realm will be making a return in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie.

Dr. Michalakis was brought on as a quantum physics consultant for Ant-Man in 2014 and on his first day of work as a consultant, he was asked what they should call it when Ant-Man gets really small. Michalakis suggested that they call it the Quantum Realm, which is a real concept that describes stuff that happens at the scale of sub-atomic particles.

So where does Superman fit into all of this? As it turns out, Dr. Michalakis was looking to put elements of modern physics into Ant-Man, which got him thinking abut superheroes in the real world. Dr. Michalakis argues that "if they were real, »

Captain Marvel Is Taking a Trip Into the Quantum Realm

2 hours ago

Captain Marvel, the upcoming Marvel movie starring Brie Larson, is about to get a tie into Marvel's Ant-Man. It has been relatively quiet on the Captain Marvel news front lately. We are not sure what the major plot points are going to be and we definitively don't know how Carol Danvers will obtain her superpowers in the movie, which is understandable because the movie is still a year half from being officially released. But we do know that production is expected to start sometime in February of 2018 and that it will be an origin story that differs from the original comics. We now also know that Captain Marvel will be linked to Ant-Man through the Quantum Realm.

Dr. Spiros Michalakis is a quantum physicist at the California Institute of Technology and he recently sat down for an interview with Inverse to discuss his role in working with Marvel Comics as a consult on Ant-Man. »

Sony is doubling down on it's own version of the Marvel universe with the second installment to be titled Silver and Black, based on the Silver Sable and Black Cat comics.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Nathan Fillion Cameo Posters Revealed

5 hours ago

As you may now, Nathan Fillion was supposed to have a very minuscule role in this May's hit sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But he was axed, left to die on the cutting room floor. All is not lost, though, as director James Gunn is sharing a look at exactly what this cameo would have consisted of. And it's all spoof posters.

Earlier in the month, Gunn confirmed that his friend Nathan Fillion had a small part to play in Guardians 2. Though his role would have not been an acting one. Instead, Fillion posed for a number of movie posters for a Simon Williams film festival happening at a theater that would have been seen during the Earth attack sequence played out by Ego the Living Planet.

The good news to come from this is that Simon WIlliams is now officially part of the Marvel cinematic canon. Williams »

Star Wars 8 to Unmask Captain Phasma?

6 hours ago

Is the mystery behind Captain Phasma about to be exposed? Sure, fans already know that Gwendoline Christie is behind the mask of this fairly new Star Wars character. But we never got to see her actual face in The Force Awakens. Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be changing that.

The first hint that Captain Phasma might go unmasked was a new cover for Vanity Fair that showed Christie in full costume without her shiny chrome helmet. Now, Lucasfilm Story Group creative executive, Pablo Hidalgo has arrived with some new intel, and breaks down the mystique of this unique character even further.

When first written, Captain Phasma was a male character, leader for a battalion of First Order Stormtroopers. But feeling the need for stronger female characters at the forefront of The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams cast her as a woman. And Game of Thrones fans were ecstatic. Early »

With just a few weeks until it debuts on the streaming service, Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming indie Shimmer Lake, which is slated to arrive June 9. This dark comedy is set during the aftermath of a bank robbery in a small town, but nothing is as it seems, including the actual format of the movie itself.

Watch the Hamilton Cast Sing Happy Birthday to Star Wars

20 hours ago

Last month at Star Wars Celebration, LucasFilm kicked off the Star Wars 40th Anniversary celebration with a huge panel featuring a number of Star Wars luminaries including Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and George Lucas, just to name a few. The actual 40th Anniversary date, though, is tomorrow, with Star Wars: A New Hope hitting theaters around the world on May 25, 1977. Earlier today, a new episode of The Star Wars Show debuted, which opens with a special birthday song, performed by the cast of the Broadway sensation Hamilton.

This Star Wars birthday song comes at the very beginning of this week's The Star Wars Show, with the entire cast gathered in front of the famous Yoda statue near the front entrance of Industrial Light and Magic in San Francisco, California, where The Star Wars Show is filmed every week. However, the Hamilton cast weren't the only ones to wish Star Wars a happy birthday. »

This Fate of the Furious Bootleg DVD Cover Is Hilarious and Amazing

20 hours ago

Bootlegging, piracy, whatever you want to call it is inevitable in this day and age, more so than in the past, with technology getting better and better. But while piracy tech is thriving, it appears that bootleg DVD Photoshop skills have yet to catch up with the tech of the day. We've all seen them, they're in any major city, usually sold on a blanket next to bootleg t-shirts of recently deceased celebrities and incense. Or we all have that uncle that takes business trips to China and comes home with a bag full of bootleg DVDs. Though not as popular as they were, say 15 years ago, bootleg DVDs are still a pretty decent cash flow for pirates. I imagine the only real trouble is finding someone with a DVD player or disc drive to play the hot movies.

One of the best features of any bootleg DVD is the artwork. »

Proof That Jurassic World 2 Director Is Doing Man of Steel 2?

20 hours ago

Has Man of Steel 2 finally locked down a director? The sequel is most definitely in the works at Warner Bros., but not a lot has been said about where it is at in the development stage. However, it looks like the studio may have found a man to helm the Man of Steel sequel, if you follow the trailer of circumstantial evidence that has been laid out before us. So, who is this potential director? Jurassic World 2 helmer J.A. Bayona.

It isn't necessarily any one thing that leads us to believe that J.A. Bayona could be the man directing Man of Steel 2. Rather, it is several things that, when added together, seem to point in that general direction. Let's start with the latest bit of evidence, which is some eyebrow-raising Twitter activity. First off, Warner Bros. man in charge of the DC Extended Universe, Geoff Johns, recently followed J.A. Bayona on Twitter, »

Adam Sandler Gets 4-Minute Standing Ovation at Cannes, Is Oscar Next?

21 hours ago

Adam Sandler received a four-minute standing ovation (yes, you read that correctly a 4 minute standing ovation) at the Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera. Sandler has come a long way since nudie magazine day and this is actually his second time gaining praise at Cannes. The first time was 15 years ago for his highly underrated performance in Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love. The late Roger Ebert even praised Sandler's performance in the movie stating that Sandler had "unexpected depth" and that he has "darkness, obsession, and power." This is all true, so where did that version of Sandler disappear to? If Sunday's standing ovation has anything to say about it, that Sandler is back.

The ovation came after a screening of Noah Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories, which is competing for a Palm d'Or this year at Cannes, the highest honor given at the event. The movie was »

22 hours ago

It's been a big day for Star Wars fans already, with the first details about Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern's characters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi revealed, along with the first look at the aliens who inhabit the casino city known as Canto Bight. Now we have even more details from actor Adam Driver, who teases that the movie starts with most of the main characters in a "rehabilitation state," including his character Kylo Ren. Here's what the actor had to say about it.

"I feel like almost everyone is in that rehabilitation state (at the beginning of The Last Jedi). You know, I don't think that patricide is all that it's cracked up to be. Maybe that's where Kylo Ren is starting from. His external scar is probably as much an internal one."

Vanity Fair also spoke with John Boyega, who confirmed earlier rumors that his »

Major League 3 Is Ready to Go, It Just Needs Funding

23 hours ago

After years of talk, it looks like Major League 3 may finally happen. Charlie Sheen has been into the idea of doing the movie for years, but now he says everyone is on board and they are just waiting for someone to "write a check." Assuming they can get financing together, it sounds like original director David S. Ward and the entire original cast are set to return for the long-awaited sequel.

The 51-year-old actor recently spoke with TMZ and revealed that David S. Ward has written the script for Major League 3 and that the movie is ready to go. He also said that "everybody is back," when asked who would be returning. That would presumably include Wesley Snipes and Tom Berenger. Though, he did note that Lou Brown, who was played by James Gammon in both Major League movies, will not be included in the sequel, but said they will "do it in his honor. »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth and final installment in the video game movie franchise came out in January of this year and has just been released on Blu-Ray and streaming services. With all of that being said, it was announced just this week that the franchise is already in the very early stages of a reboot to cash in on the massive success of the original six Resident Evil movies. But is money the only motivation to reboot a franchise that literally just ended a few months ago?

Constantin Film announced their intentions to reboot the Resident Evil franchise with six movies unrelated to the characters that have appeared in the previous six movies, which came as a huge surprise to fans. ComicBook reports that fans »
