Sylvester Stallone Still Wants To Make A Tango & Cash Sequel

Unsurprisingly for somebody that has a new movie to promote, Sylvester Stallone has been all over the news recently. The actor has been doing the press rounds for upcoming action sequel Rambo: Last Blood, and has been fielding questions about everything from his involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to his continued role in the Rocky franchise.

Last Blood marks the fifth outing for bandana-wearing Vietnam vet John Rambo, and Stallone is certainly no stranger to a sequel, having played Rocky Balboa eight times, headlined three Expendables and Escape Plans apiece, as well as lending support in Spy Kids 3 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. One of Sly’s fan-favorite movies that never got a sequel though was the 1989 buddy flick Tango & Cash, which has gone on to become a cult classic for fans of the genre.

However, it appears that the 73 year-old hasn’t given up on

Marvel Will Introduce A New Guardians Of The Galaxy Team After Vol. 3

With the exception of the Avengers films, no Marvel Studios series has so far made it beyond movie number three. And while Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder is set to break that pattern when it arrives in theaters two years from now, the highly anticipated fourquel is expected to bring some big changes to the saga, including a passing of the torch from Chris Hemsworth to Natalie Portman.

With that in mind, let’s talk about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. If director James Gunn’s recent comment on Instagram is anything to go by, then the Guardians’ next outing will likely serve as the filmmaker’s final entry in the cosmic superhero series. But while Gunn may be calling it quits after Vol. 3, sources close to We Got This Covered – the same ones who told us Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk shows were in development

Marvel Cinematic Universe Star Pom Klementieff Talks Disney-Fox Merger, X-Men Dreams
Pom Klementieff may have entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Mantis in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” followed by appearances in the last two “Avengers” movies, but that wasn’t her original superhero plan.

“My dream was to be in X-Men,” she told Variety on Thursday at the Chanel dinner for its new fragrance Gabrielle Chanel Essence at Chateau Marmont. “It was my dream. I remember seeing Storm, Halle Berry. I was like, ‘F—, I want to do that.’ She was like me. She was mixed. I’m Korean, Russian and French. So I wanted to be in X-Men.”

But then she got cast in “Guardians.” “That was better because it’s funnier,” Klementieff said.

She also said it would be “fun” if the Disney-Fox merger lead to a Guardians and X-Men crossover.

“But you know what I really want with the Fox merger, I want to be on ‘The Simpsons,

James Gunn debunks rumour of Zatanna appearance in The Suicide Squad

As The Suicide Squad edges towards production, writer-director James Gunn has taken to social media to respond to a fan who enquired whether there was any truth to a recent rumour suggesting that Zatanna could be set for a cameo appearance in the DC ensemble – and it seems the original report has been conjured from thin air.

“I have nothing against Zatanna, but I have no idea where some of this stuff comes from,” wrote Gunn. “I never even thought of including her in The Suicide Squad (nor many of the other characters I keep hearing are in the film). I can’t comment on every rumor but just know many aren’t true. Away rumors!”

As it happens, this isn’t the only Zatanna rumour that’s been doing the rounds recently, as it was claimed back in December that Warner Bros. and DC Films have been considering a solo movie for the character,

Guardians Of The Galaxy: 5 Things Vol. 1 Did Better Than Vol. 2 (And 5 Things Vol. 2 Did Better)

Guardians of the Galaxy arrived as a breath of fresh air in 2014 and it was universally adored, but the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, was more divisive. Since James Gunn was fired from the threequel and then rehired after he’d taken on another job, we’ll have to wait a few years to see another Guardians movie.

Unfortunately, this means that despite all the unresolved plot threads involving the Guardians from Avengers: Endgame, for a while, their first two solo movies will be all we’ve got. So without further delay, here are 5 things Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 1 did better than Vol. 2 and 5 things that Vol. 2 did better.

Dave Bautista Says Marvel Studios Doesn't See Worth in Making a Drax Solo Film

Drax is a seriously great Marvel character, both in the films and in the comics. He has such an interesting story arc, and I would actually love to see the character get a deeper and further exploration in a standalone film. So would Dave Bautista, but he says that Marvel Studios doesn’t see the worth in producing a Drax film.

Point is I freaking love comic book characters and I want a stand alone. @MarvelStudios doesn’t see worth in #drax or possibly myself or both but I’m not giving up. I missed out on a DC project because of scheduling conflicts but hopefully there’s other characters & opportunities https://t.co/OX1XDnbmk9

Jeffrey Wright’s Watcher Will Appear In Future Cosmic McU Movies

Marvel recently took another step towards ramping up the future of the McU to a cosmic level by introducing Uatu the Watcher to the franchise. The character will be voiced by Jeffrey Wright, who’ll make his first appearance in the upcoming Disney Plus animated show What If…?, a series of re-imaginings of the McU’s existing storylines.

The Watcher is an alien being from Marvel Comics who belongs to an immensely ancient and powerful race. Despite being one of the most powerful beings in existence though, most of the race have dedicated their lives to simply observing important events taking place in the multiverse without interfering. Uatu’s assigned to observe Earth and the surrounding space, and despite his vow of non-interference, has in the past often found himself interacting with and helping the heroes to prevent a major catastrophe.

The Watchers have already made an appearance in the McU,

Here’s How Zac Efron Could Look As Adam Warlock In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

One glance at all the online fan art of Zac Efron as Kyle Rayner or Wolverine makes it pretty clear that there’s a lot of demand out there to see the Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile star tackle a comic book movie role. And according to recent rumors, he may very well get the chance to do just that in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Several reports have sprung up over the last few months that say Efron’s being eyed for a part that was teased in the post-credits scene of 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We are, of course, referring to Adam Warlock, someone the fans have been waiting to see in the McU for many years now. And though there’s still no confirmation on if he’ll actually be featuring in Vol. 3, or if Efron’s actually in talks for the part,

Taika Waititi in talks to join James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad

Taika Waititi is reportedly in talks to join the cast of the upcoming DC film The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn.

According to Deadline, there is no word yet as to what role Waititi is in negotiations to be playing or how big the part will be. However, with The Suicide Squad reportedly entering production in September and Waititi having a busy work schedule ahead of him, it’s possible his role won’t be as large as we may hope.

The filmmaker is currently promoting his new Fox Searchlight project, Jojo Rabbit, which is set to open on 18th October 2019 in the U.S. and he is beginning work on the sports comedy Next Goal Wins, which is his next directorial role for the Searchlight studio.

Nathan Fillion joins the cast of The Suicide Squad

Castle’s Nathan Fillion is once again collaborating with director James Gunn as he joins the cast of The Suicide Squad at Warner Bros.

This isn’t the first time Fillion and Gunn have worked together. He has supplied the voice of a ‘monstrous inmate’ in Guardians of The Galaxy, he played Bill in the director’s 2006 horror comedy Slither, and he took on the role of The Holy Avenger in Super.

According to Deadline, Fillion’s role is currently being kept under wraps but with the report stating that he is “starring” in The Suicide Squad, this could potentially mean the actor has a larger role, as opposed to a cameo.

Fillion is best known for his role as Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds in the cult sci-fi series Firefly and the feature film Serenity. His other credits include Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet and A Series of Unfortunate Events,

James Gunn Has Cast His King Shark For The Suicide Squad

To say that James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad will feature an eclectic lineup is an understatement. In addition to welcoming back familiar favorites such as Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang, we’ll be greeted by newcomers like the Polka-Dot Man, Peacemaker, Ratcatcher and a character yet to be revealed as played by Idris Elba (my money is on Bronze Tiger).

For some time though, we’ve been wondering who will fill the role of King Shark as the team’s monstrous brute, as it was once thought Michael Rooker had landed the gig. After that hope had been ripped away, the speculation continued. Until today, that is.

As it turns out, a different Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star has been enlisted, that being Steve Agee. As you may recall, he played the Ravager Gef in the Marvel flick. That said, we’d assume he’s established a good working relationship with Gunn,
