Bryan Singer has revealed that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be in 3D. Get ready for Mystique to kick and transform IN YOUR FACE. I am also betting that Wolverine is going to SNIKT in your face, a piece of a Sentinel will be hurled at the audience, and if we get Lockheed? He will blow fire at us.

The Host has a new poster featuring the main characters and one brown eye. An actual eyeball that is brown. What does this have to do with a movie about aliens called Souls taking over humans? I believe the blueish-white ring around the pupil tips people off as to the body's invasion, but it has been a while since I've read the novel.


Guardians of the Galaxy will use a blend of full computer graphics and motion capture to create Groot and Rocket Raccoon. January Jones could motion capture for Groot! IT'S PERFECT!


According to Stanley Tucci, Hayley Atwell will appear in flashbacks in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Rupert Grint is set to star in the show "Super Clyde" as the title character. Greg Garcia ("Raising Hope") will be writing and producing the series for CBS, which centers on "Clyde, the well-meaning and sweet yet slightly neurotic guy who never feels like he really fits in. The avid comic book reader considers himself a borderline agoraphobic with mild to severe anxiety issues who wishes he were a super hero himself. When Clyde inherits a $100,000 a month inheritance from his long-dead eccentric Uncle Bill, he decides that the cash will be his secret super power and will use it only for good and reward the good-hearted."

The newest Justice League rumor is that a Batman reboot will push production back. I'm going to cry over the idea of a new Batman movie series this soon after Nolan's trilogy.

Paul Walker has another upcoming movie with Luc Besson's Brick Mansions, a remake of District B13. I eagerly await the career resurrections of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Andrew Keegan.

The super awesome Serena Crim made the January Jones/Groot picture for me! Thanks again!!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Buck Forty

    The idea of a Batman reboot so soon IS madness, but we can blame that on all the people who paid money to see The Amazing Spider-Man. If you watch it they will come. And make more. Of the same.

  • Jim Slemaker

    Fortunately, the "Souls" in THE HOST only take over supermodels so nobody really notices. Or cares.

  • MrFrye

    "I eagerly await the career resurrections of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Andrew Keegan."

    Is that sarcasm? I can't tell.

    Also, I honestly don't remember when Prinze had a career. Unless being married to Buffy the Vampire Slayer counts as a "career".

  • Captain D

    I'm only interested in Brick Mansions if one of two things happen. 1) All sets are made out of Lego 2) Vin Diesel signs on to play the Lola character.

  • Wembley

    Sheesh! People are always wishing and praying and changing their name for world peace- but whenever aliens come down to deliver it, people start bitching about it. Well, fuck you too, humanity!

  • Natallica

    "The host" is gonna suck in every way imaginable but DAMN, Diane Kruger looks fierce on that poster

  • $27019454

    God, for one hot second Freddie Prinze Jr was a total A-Bomb FOX. That picture hurts to look at. Like hurts in a good way/place.

  • blake

    Well at least something is brown to in "The Host".

  • BendinIntheWind

    Hayley Atwell is still far and away my favorite Marvel lady-friend. She was a total badass and actually looked capable of winning a fight. Just put a blonde wig on her and call her Sharon!

  • NateMan

    How the HELL is Paul Walker going to pull off the stunts in B13? That blonde bimbo couldn't act or ass-kick his way out of a wet paper bag. The whole point of B13 (at least for me) was that it was stuntmen who actually knew what they were doing. This is an abomination unto action movies. The production studio should be burned to the ground, the area salted so nothing can grow there any longer, and the newly widowed(or widowered) spouses of those left to burn inside be chained to the ground to weep for their loss.

    Also, Happy Valentine's Day!

  • Rocabarra

    I got excited when I saw Luc Besson's name, but then I saw the rest of the post and thought everything you just said. Ugh.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    I fucking can't with DC. They are fucking this up left, right and center. Yes, please DO reboot a franchise of a character after a trilogy that changed the entire genre. DO still push for a Justice League movie, even though you finally cottoned up to just how bad the script was, and now you have pre-production for a movie without a script or a cast. DO hire a fuckwit homophobe to write one of your banner characters, after finally acknowledging LGBT is not a trend. DO ALL OF THIS, YOU BUNCH OF FUCKING NECKBEARDS.

    And then whine about how you will never catch up with Marvel while no one will cry for you, ever.

  • Green Lantern


    I am a decades-long, dyed-in-the-wool DC Comics fanboy, and have a hard time finding fault with ANYTHING you just said above.

    Is it *really* that tough to let competent people do their jobs creatively? Must be...

  • NateMan

    They are indeed fucking it up. They should stick to either animated movies, which typically Do Not Suck for them, or let Christopher Nolan make whatever he wants.
