    Back when the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ ship was without a captain a few years ago, there were so many names being thrown around to direct the first installment of the new trilogy from a galaxy far, far away.

    Though it’s pretty certain that we won’t see Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow or Grant Gustin’s Flash on ‘Supergirl’ when it premieres on CBS this fall, there are a number of DC Comics characters joining former ‘Glee’ star Melissa Benoist as she dons the iconic S as the Kryptonian hero Kara Zor-El.

    Sorry, True Believers! If you thought that the failure of Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four’ at the box office during its opening weekend meant that the film rights to Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing would revert back to Marvel Studios, then you are mistaken. It turns out that 20th Century […]

    Basically everyone has been coming down hard on Josh Trank’s ‘Fantastic Four.’ They definitely have good reason to, but there is one person (that isn’t affiliated with 20th Century Fox) that somewhat defended the latest film featuring Marvel’s First Family. The director’s ‘Chronicle’ collaborator Max Landis recently shared his thoughts on how hard filmmaking can be […]

    For years and years (and years at this point), Bill Murray has been teasing his involvement in a third ‘Ghostbusters’ movie. There was a small period of time where we thought that he’d be in ‘Ghostbusters 3’, but then that project fell to the wayside in favor of a reboot of the franchise from Paul […]

    It has been said that the new ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot from Josh Trank is the worst non-Marvel Studios Marvel movie not starring Nicolas Cage. Okay, I said that, but there are still some incredibly scathing reviews circulating about 20th Century Fox’s latest attempt at film franchise for Marvel’s First Family.
