Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering & Sims Movies All Cancelled by Disney?

  • MovieWeb
Update: A representative for Walt Disney Studios has personally reached out to confirm that this story is not true. It is 100% fake news that Disney has canceled over 300 movies reportedly in development. The story originated from a fake list of film titles that someone posted on an Imgur account. Neither Disney nor Fox would have 'hundreds' of movies in development all at one time, and it is noted that if true, no studio would just storm in and cancel everything in one fail swoop. As for the fates of Mega Man, Magic: The Gathering and The Sims Movie, we haven't had an update on those in a while, and all three could very well actually happen in the future.

Original story: Several planned video game based movies in the works will no longer see the light of day, as Disney has unplugged a handful of them in one fell swoop.

15 Iconic Movie Roles That Were Landed at the Last Minute

Jack Beresford Aug 6, 2019

Some of the big screen's most memorable performances came from actors who were cast just before the cameras started rolling...

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Good casting makes all the difference in the movie business. You can have a great script, a big budget, and the best director but without the right actors, everything can fall a little flat.

Yet even good casting can go wrong every now and then. Someone who once seemed perfect for a particular role suddenly falls flat once the cameras start rolling, unable to bring to life what they once successfully conveyed during an audition and initial screen test. Other times injuries, contractual obligations, or other unforeseen personal circumstances can put paid to the best-laid plans.

Then there are the dreaded “creative differences” where conflicts between actors and directors end with one of the injured parties exiting a project

First look at Jack Bannon as young Alfred in Batman prequel series Pennyworth

With Gotham drawing to a close, executive producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon are now hard at work on another Batman prequel series Pennyworth, which is set to explore the early life of Bruce Wayne’s future butler. Here’s a first look at Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game) as the young Alfred Pennyworth…

Bannon’s Alfred is described as “honest, open-faced and witty; you’d never take him for an Sas killer. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become.”

Batman prequel series Pennyworth will be “unhinged” and “R-rated”

After dipping its toes into R-rated territory with the DC Universe live-action series Titans, it seems that DC will be continuing that trend with Epix’s Batman prequel series Pennyworth, with executive producer Danny Cannon (Gotham) revealing at the Television Critics Association press tour that the show will be “unhinged” and “R-rated”.

“It’s twentysomething years before Gotham, it’s a very different world,” said Cannon. “This is the DC version of 1960s London. 13 degrees history is different: It’s not the England we know,” he continued. “It looks and feels like, but if you look a little closer, [you ask], ‘Why is that like that? Why is that building there? What war is he talking about?'”

Cannon went on to reveal that there won’t be any members of Batman’s Rogue’s Gallery appearing in Pennyworth, but will instead feature “archetypal villains and classic villains of British literature; they’re all available to us.

The Crow Movies We Almost Got

The Crow Movies We Almost Got
The Crow is one of our favorite comic book movies of all time. A gritty supernatural revenge fantasy that takes place in Detroit on the night before Halloween, aka Devil's Night, the dark romance and gothic overtones were part of the magic, conjured most profoundly by the late Brandon Lee, who died during the production. Since the release of the 1994 original, we've gotten three subpar sequels and a short-lived TV series. But more intriguingly, there have been a number of starts, stops, and concepts for reboots, re-imaginings, and resurrections of Eric Draven. Here we'll take a look at The Crow movies we almost got.

The Crow was created by James O'Barr an orphan who was raised in institutional and foster care and a self-taught illustrator who loved Will Eisner's The Spirit. O'Barr enlisted in the Marines after his fianc&#233 was killed by a drunk driver. While stationed in Germany, he began to draw The Crow,

Alan Moore Wrote a Gothic Fantasy Film Called The Show and Here's Our First Look

Alan Moore, the comic book writing legend behind Watchmen, Swamp Thing, V for Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, has written a script for a new film called The Show. The photo above is our first look at the movie and it certainly looks interestingly odd.

Moore is known for distancing himself from the movies that are based on his work. He’s also been vocally angry with Hollywood over the years, so it’s weird to see that he’s actually doing a film project of his own now. This is his very first original feature film screenplay that will be produced.

Tom Burke (Only God Forgives) is set to star in the film and the story is described as a gothic fantasy drama that follows “Fletcher Dennis (Burke), who has been hired to track down a stolen artifact. This leads him to Northampton, a haunted town at
