The legendary Michael Douglas has taken to social media to announce that production on Marvel’s Ant-Man sequel is scheduled to commence some time in July, while also teasing his Hank Pym reprisal…
Michael Douglas has now officially confirmed that he’s set to reprise the role of Hank Pym in Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp. Though we all pretty much assumed he’d be back anyway, it was far from a forgone conclusion as Douglas actually only signed on for one movie originally.
As Scott Lang’s mentor, Pym was one of the many highlights of the first movie, so this is terrific news. The Academy Award-winning actor will rejoin Paul Rudd as the diminutive superhero of the title, and Evangeline Lilly, who will have an expanded role as Hope Van Dyne.
Douglas also revealed that Peyton Reed is scheduled to begin filming the sequel this July.
Earlier this week, we got the first official colour image from Logan, but now another has followed which shows Wolverine attempting to help Professor Charles Xavier as he seemingly starts losing control.
Well, this is unexpected! The first promo art for Thor: Ragnarok has surfaced today, and as you can see, it’s every bit as stylised as the movie’s first logo. Offering up a very cool shot of the Jade Giant in his gladiator armour, the Jade Giant looks like he’s been torn straight out of the pages of Planet Hulk.
Thor meanwhile has a tattered cape and is sporting face paint which isn’t too different to what we’ve seen Valkyrie covered with. Mjolnir is also nowhere to be seen as the God of Thunder is instead wielding two very powerful looking swords which are likely filling in for his hammer while he’s forced to compete under the watchful eye of The Grandmaster in his cosmic fighting arena. However, many of you will also no doubt be overjoyed to see him wearing his helmet (which has been redesigned).
So, like many Marvel Studios movies, our first look at Thor: Ragnarok has come via leaked promo art. It looks amazing though, and with any luck, this is just the first of many pieces to come for the movie.
We recently learned that Marvel is bringing back the Blue and Gold X-Men teams, and now official artwork has been released, finally revealing which mutants will be on each team and who’ll be leading them.
X-Men: Gold will be written by Marc Guggenheim with artwork by Ardian Syaf, and Kitty Pryde looks set to step up as the team leader of a squad which consists of Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan, and Rachel Grey. Unfortunately, this seemingly confirms that the original Wolverine won’t be returning her as many suspected meaning that he’ll still be on the shelf when Logan is released.
X-Men: Blue meanwhile will be written by Cullen Bunn with artwork by Jorge Molina. The roster will consist of the five original, time-displaced X-Men: leader Jean Grey, Cyclops, Iceman, Beast and Angel, but joining them is Magneto. He’ll serve as their new mentor now Professor X is no longer around, and that sherve as an interesting new dynamic to a team used to seeing him as their greatest enemy.
While Joe and Anthony Russo appear to still be scouting locations for Avengers: Infinity War, a new report points to the cameras having already started rolling on the highly anticipated Phase 3 release.
It looks like Superman may be sporting a new hairstyle in DC Entertainment’s Justice League. […]
It looks like Superman may be sporting a new hairstyle in DC Entertainment’s Justice League. And, with some help from a skilled digital artist, fans can now see what the hero might look like in the upcoming film.
It was only a week ago when Zack Snyder teased reporters during a set visit for Justice League that they should expect to see Superman return to the DCEU with long hair. “It should be perfect,” he said. “Longer, I guess. That’s what the myths are anyway.”
— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) June 24, 2016
Taking to the Internet, Twitter user @BossLogic decided to draw out what Synder’s promise would look like in real-life by whipping up a photoshopped image of Henry Cavill as Superman, complete with glowing red eyes and unruly black hair. The stern photo clearly imbues Clark Kent/Superman with an almost ominous power as the image’s grey-scale color scheme is sharply accented with violent red highlights. A fan of the hero himself, BossLogic wrote a short blurb to accompany his creation which reads, “Can’t wait to see his actual look in #justiceleague #henrycavill @ZackSnyder.”
For fans of Superman comics, the look seen in BossLogic’s photo might not be all that surprising. Rather, the hero’s appearance looks as if it’s been lifted off the pages of The Reign of the Supermen! from the 1980s. The comic, which follows the well-known story of Superman’s death, relaunched the Superman franchise and showcased four different heroes who each claimed in some way to be Superman. However, the series eventually revived and reinstated the original Clark Kent as Superman. Given the cliff-hanger ending of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice where viewers were all but explicitly shown Clark’s resurrection after his fight with Doomsday, Snyder next film appears to be taking note from the hero’s source material to dictate the character’s look.
Justice League will be directed by Zack Snyder and is currently filming in London, England. The film will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Willem Dafoe has joined the cast as Atlantean soldier Vulco while Amber Heard will appear as Mera.
The film is slated to hit theaters on November 17, 2017, a date that happens to double as the 25th anniversary of the release of Superman, #75 which concluded the story, ”Doomsday!: The Death of Superman. »
A new series of concept artwork has made its way online via Reddit, showing some of the characters we could have seen in Sam Raimi’s cancelledSpider-Man 4, including one that might surprise
Fans were left disappointed when director Sam Raimi departed from the Spider-Man franchise due to creative differences. Despite the mixed reception to Spider-Man 3, Raimi was keen on doing another film, before departing the project due to Sony wanting more say in the film’s story. After the project was scrapped entirely, Sony went on to reboot the series with the two Amazing Spider-Man films. Raimi’s story for the planned fourth film was known to have included the Vulture and Felicia Hardy (seen below), but now some new artwork has revealed that Mysterio was set to have a role in the film as well…and he looks eerily similar to actor Bruce Campbell, who appeared in three different roles throughout the series. Felicia Hardy also resembles Angelina Jolie in the concept art, though Anne Hathaway was being lined up to play the role. Check out the art below!
You can start making Birdman jokes again. After initially passing on the role, THRreports that Michael Keaton (Batman, Beetlejuice, The Other Guys) is back in final talks to play the villain in Marvel and Sony’s solo Spidey reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Apparently the studios approached several other actors before ultimately returning to Keaton – presumably with a better offer.
There’s still no official word on the character he’d portray, but The Vulture is strongly rumored.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will star Tom Holland in the title role, along with Marisa Tomei as unt May, Zendaya as the still unnamed female lead, Tony Revolori, Laura Harrier (also unknown characters) and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man.
DC’S big rebirth will be starting this summer and the company have actually just released some pictures of how icons Wonder Woman , Batman and Superman as well as Harley Quinn , Jessica Cruz , Killer Croc ,The Super Sons and Aquaman.

Marvel characters have really been on a roll to start off 2016, already picking up big wins withDeadpool and Captain America: Civil War, and they’re in prime position to pick up the hat trick when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters this Memorial Day weekend.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly‘s massive summer movie preview, we have a stunning new still from the upcoming Bryan Singer-directed epic featuring our new Jean Grey, played by Sophie Turner (Game Of Thrones), lending a helping hand to a young Scott Summers, played by Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One) as he blasts his optic beams at an unseen foe. The latest issue doesn’t divulge anything more on the film’s plot, but it does reveal that Sheridan has signed on for at least two more X-Men movies after Apocalypse, which is probably also the case for his fellow young co-stars – Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, & Kodi Smit-McPhee.
On another note, it looks like we’ll be getting a brand new trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse in the next week or so as the British Board of Film Classification recently released this classification for the upcoming trailer:
