Here’s How Tom Hardy Could Look As The McU’s New Wolverine

If Venom and Wolverine were to share anything in common right now, it’s that moviegoers are pondering both their cinematic futures. When it comes to the former, things are a bit clearer, as Tom Hardy is set to return as Eddie Brock in a sequel directed by none other than Andy Serkis.

As for Logan, his outlook is trickier to forecast. Though I’m sure Marvel Studios will most certainly weave such an immensely popular character into their overall tapestry, they’re in no rush to do so after Dark Phoenix bombing at the box office. After all, the X-Men weren’t even factored into plans for Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Still, it’s fun pondering the possibilities of what tomorrow might bring. More often than not, it’s Tom Hardy who’s been fan-cast as Wolverine in online conversations these days, and I can certainly see why.

X-Men’s Brian Cox is open to returning as Stryker in the McU

Brian Cox has stated he is open to returning as William Stryker in the X-Men franchise once implemented into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Those familiar with the X-Men franchise will remember Brian Cox portrayed the memorable villain William Stryker in X2: X-Men United (arguably the best instalment in the series). Stryker has a desire to harvest mutants for weapons to take down potential mutant threats and is responsible for bonding adamantium to Wolverine’s bones.

In a statement to ComicBook.com, Cox has claimed he is open to returning as Stryker once the mutants are embraced in the McU. Cox said, “I’m always open, you never close any door down, especially if it’s enjoyable. “And certainly, the X-Men film, because I was only in the one, was really enjoyable.”

“I would revisit any time, because I just like that working atmosphere. It was a good atmosphere,” he added.

X-Men: First Class Writer Wants Breaking Bad Star As The McU’s Magneto

Ever since Breaking Bad went off the air in 2013, its most prominent cast members have gone on to work on some incredible projects. Bryan Cranston has landed roles in the Godzilla reboot and Isle of Dogs (while also picking up an Oscar nom for Trumbo), Aaron Paul starred in Hulu’s The Path, and a few actors (including Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks) reprised their roles in the spinoff prequel series, Better Call Saul.

As we reported the other day, rumors are circulating that Giancarlo Esposito – who’s best known for his work as restaurant owner and drug kingpin Gustavo “Gus” Fring – is up for a role within the McU and some have speculated he’ll take on the part of Norman Osborn, founder of Oscorp.

As always, these sorts of rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, but a few key Hollywood figures have now weighed in

The Stand: James Marsden Lands Lead in New Limited Series

Don Kaye Jun 21, 2019

Former X-Men and Westworld star James Marsden will lead the forces of light in The Stand.

James Marsden has been tapped by director/writer Josh Boone (New Mutants) to play the lead role of Stu Redman in the upcoming CBS All Access limited series based on Stephen King's The Stand, according to Deadline.

Redman is literally the first major character we meet in the original version of King's novel, where we find him hanging around a gas station with a handful of local cronies in a one-stoplight Texas town. When a car crashes into the station, former military man Redman and his friends try to help its driver -- who is patient zero of the deadly virus that soon wipes out most of humankind.

Halle Berry's Catwoman Is More Popular Than Pfeiffer & Hathaway in New Poll

Halle Berry's Catwoman Is More Popular Than Pfeiffer & Hathaway in New Poll
I don't know about you, but my favorite portrayal of Catwoman is hands down Michelle Pfeiffer from director Tim Burton's 1992 sequel Batman Returns costarring Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne / Batman and Danny DeVito as Oswald Cobblepot / The Penguin. But it looks like us Pfeiffer fans are in the (slight) minority as a recent poll shows that America's favorite Catwoman actress is - what the hell? - Halle Berry?

Yep, it looks like the recent poll which let us know that people 18-29 preferred Robert Pattinson's casting as new Bruce Wayne / Batman over X-Men: Days of Future Past and Mad Max: Fury Road actor Nicholas Hoult, is also cluing us in on the fact that a majority of America's are wrong. I'm kidding. It's all a matter of opinion. And it's a view that filmmaker and critic Patrick H. Willems seems to think "comes down less to the actual

Read The Script For An Unproduced ‘X-Men’ Spin-Off Film About Beast & Wolverine Inspired By Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’

It was only five years ago that the ‘X-Men’ film franchise felt reinvigorated, thanks to the success of the film “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” That film, combining the casts of the original trilogy with the characters introduced in ‘First Class,’ was a big hit with critics and fans, leading many to think that there was plenty left in the ‘X-Men’ tank. As was proven by the recent “Dark Phoenix,” that tank is very much dry.

Plans for an abandoned 'X-Men Beast' spin-off movie revealed

Plans for an abandoned 'X-Men Beast' spin-off movie revealed
With the final instalment of the X-Men franchise currently breaking the wrong kind of box-office records – X-Men: Dark Phoenix is reportedly on course to suffer a whopping -73% decline in its sophomore frame at the domestic box-office – plans for a Nicholas Hoult-headlined Beast spin-off movie have been revealed by The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the report, John Ottman, who worked on the franchise’s most successful entries – X2 and Days of Future Past – had written a script along with his assistant, Byron Burton, which was set in the 80s, and featured characters such as Professor X and Wolverine.

Burton revealed the film would see Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult) struggling to maintain the beast within during the fallout from Days of Future Past, and would ultimately work as a film in which they’d introduce X-Men villain, Mr. Sinister, who’d been manipulating the events of the movie.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Director Takes Blame for Box Office

Alec Bojalad Jun 17, 2019

X-Men: Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has said "that's on me" of the film's box office struggles.

They say success has many fathers but failure is an orphan. X-Men: Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has decided to take one for the team and adopt that orphan.

In a recent interview with Kcrw's The Business, Kinberg discussed X-Men: Dark Phoenix's disappointing box office haul and tepid critical reception. Thus far the film has only made just over $50 million domestically and is holding down a 24% at Rotten Tomatoes, including a poor review from Den of Geek's own Don Kaye.

“It clearly is a movie that didn’t connect with audiences that didn’t see it, it didn’t connect enough with audiences that did see it. So that’s on me,” Kinberg said. “I’m here, I’m saying when a movie doesn’t work, put it on me.

Bryan Singer Reportedly Went Awol During X-Men: Days Of Future Past And Apocalypse

Dark Phoenix marks the culmination of the 20-year-old X-Men franchise and honestly, it’s probably the right time. One of the reasons why is that one of its biggest architects over the years, Bryan Singer, has been the subject of some serious sexual misconduct allegations that have caused his reputation to plummet.

Singer directed 2000’s X-Men and 2003’s X2 before returning to the franchise 12 years later for 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. According to a new report, however, the filmmaker went Awol during production on the latter two movies.

Deadline says that Singer is known to have failed to turn up for work on his last two X-Men features numerous times, with several other crew members having to fill the void. Specifically, producer Hutch Parker, editor/composer John Ottman, Dp Newton Thomas Sigel and writer/producer Simon Kinberg.

Simon Kinberg Blames Himself for ‘Dark Phoenix’ Box Office Bomb
Dark Phoenix” has ended the “X-Men” series with a thud at the box office, and writer-director Simon Kinberg says he blames himself for the film’s failure.

“It clearly is a movie that didn’t connect with audiences that didn’t see it, it didn’t connect enough with audiences that did see it. So that’s on me,” Kinberg told Kcrw’s The Business.

Kinberg joined the “X-Men” film series as a writer on its third installment, 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand.” He went on to serve as the lead producer for the series during its soft reboot and the “Deadpool” films, as well as a writer on “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and “X-Men: Apocalypse.” But “Dark Phoenix,” the final film to feature the X-Men before their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, was his first film as a director.

Everything You Need to Know About the Messy ‘X-Men’ Timeline After ‘Dark Phoenix’

Everything You Need to Know About the Messy ‘X-Men’ Timeline After ‘Dark Phoenix’
(We spoil the entire ending of “Dark Phoenix” and have spoilers for the rest of the “X-Men” movie franchise as well)

The “X-Men” movie franchise is leaving quite a legacy as it wraps up its main series with “Dark Phoenix” — seven main movies, three “Wolverine” films, two “Deadpool” flicks and the upcoming “New Mutants,” not to mention how the original film back in 2000 is responsible for starting the entire current waves of comic book movies on the big screen.

Yes, despite the fact that we know that “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” is the last one of these, it ends on a somewhat ambiguous note. Yes, the spinoff “New Mutants” is in the works. And yes, a third “Deadpool” film starring Ryan Reynolds is a virtual certainty. But the “Deadpool” films are pretty much their own thing, connecting to the “X-Men” film series usually just to make jokes. “New Mutants,” as far as we can tell,

Shanghai Film Festival Abruptly Pulls Opening Film ‘The Eight Hundred’

Shanghai Film Festival Abruptly Pulls Opening Film ‘The Eight Hundred’
The Shanghai Film Festival has abruptly yanked its opening movie, the $80 million patriotic war drama “The Eight Hundred,” on the eve of the fest’s kickoff, Variety has confirmed. A restored 4K version of “Midnight Cowboy” will play tomorrow night instead, the organizers announced Friday evening on social media.

The cancellation of the Saturday premiere was made for unspecified “technical reasons,” which is often a euphemism for censorship problems, although a source close to the project told Variety that that is not the issue in this case and that the film had successfully passed the content censorship stage. “Technical reasons” were also cited in the withdrawal of Zhang Yimou’s “One Second” from the Berlin Film Festival in February.

While Chinese authorities have withdrawn films from other film festivals – two were pulled from the Berlinale, including “One Second” – it’s unusual for a Chinese-made film to be yanked from a Chinese festival.

The Many Different Versions of the X-Men: Dark Phoenix Saga

Gavin Jasper Jun 13, 2019

X-Men: Dark Phoenix isn't even the first time they've tried to do this story in the movies, so imagine how many other versions there are!

There are a lot of beloved and classic X-Men stories throughout the years and I’d say that the three biggest are Days of Future Past, Age of Apocalypse, and Dark Phoenix Saga. And while Giant-Sized X-Men #1 is arguably the most important tale, it’s not the one that everyone keeps going back to the well for as much as these three giants.

The last three major X-Men movies have been trying to fit around that in a way. X-Men: Days of Future Past allowed them to retell the classic story while mixing the casts of both eras. Age of Apocalypse wasn’t going to be viable so soon after doing a time-travel/reality-altering movie, but they were at least able to finally introduce said villain.

Fox planned to make a Civil War-style Marvel crossover featuring X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic Four and Daredevil

It was frequently rumoured over the years that 20th Century Fox would look to bring the Children of the Atom and Marvel’s First Family together for an X-Men vs. Fantastic Four crossover/shared universe, and while this ultimately never came to fruition, it has now been revealed that plans for such an event movie were in motion at one point – and would have also featured the characters of Daredevil and Deadpool.

“My ex-partner and I, when we were working at Fox and we were working on X-Men: First Class, we did a secret movie for them that, I can’t tell you what the plot was, but I can tell you that it used all of the characters, all of the Marvel characters that Fox had at the time in 2011,” revealed screenwriter Zack Stentz in an interview on Kevin Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcast. “It used the X-Men.
