super

YAY! James Gunn’s Super has a release date and new photos. It feels like I’ve been waiting for this shit FOREVER. (Read my review of Gunn’s Slither here.)

gandalfgandalf and magneto

Sorta maybe almost-definite confirmation that Ian McKellan will return as Gandalf in The Hobbit. He had fucking BETTER. Just finished re-reading The Hobbit and I’m ready for this movie to get itself rolling already. Even though it will be shot in tiresome 3D.

leland

Nice! Leland Palmer/Ray Wise has been cast in Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class as the Secretary of the State. (Read my reviews of Vaughn’s Kick-Ass here and Ray Wise in Twin Peaks here.) Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Wonder Woman is getting the shaft again!

Ugh. So although Hollywood will spit out a dozen movies a year with random, no-big-deal MALE comic book characters, one of the greatest superheroes of all time who happens to be a woman can’t get one single damned feature film. The long-touted Wonder Woman movie is now a television show. Oh AND?! It’s being written/produced by the abysmal David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal). THIS IS BULLSHIT.

x-men first class

Some scoop from the set of X-Men: First Class, being shot at Oxford currently.

And we’ve got some news from NYCC regarding the Deadpool movie and which other Marvel characters we can expect to see, including…Colossus! The coolest X-Man ever! Obvs Ryan Reynolds will not reprise his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine because he’s got bigger, greener, lanternier fish to fry.

wolverine

Speaking of our least favorite comic book movie of all time, serious-business director Darren Aronofsky is considering following the immense critical success of Black Swan with a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Yes, okay, that sounds reasonable utterly insane and made up. (Read my review of Wolverine here.) Continue reading

Joss Whedon gives a great interview here about the challenges and thrills of working with such a high-caliber cast on The Avengers. CANNOT WAIT! Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla resurfaces after mysterious disappearance!

I’m sorry I’ve been so MIA lately. I’m *almost* ready to return full-force back to ye olde blogge once things settle down. In the meantime, here’s another shorty!

sandman

My all-time favorite comic series, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, is being adapted for television, and Gaiman is possibly not involved? A WORLD OF NO. Oh yeah, and somehow Eric Kripke (creator of Supernatural) is involved. Read my review of Supernatural here.

First pics of January Jones as bad-ass Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class. She looks more silly than bad-ass, but whattya gonna do? Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's face to melt in tragic explosion of awesomeness tonight!

YES! That’s right! I’m seeing Piranha 3D this very evening and I’m CRAZY! EXCITED! Reviews are crazy good, box office numbers are decent and a sequel’s already in the works!

x-men first classJanuary Jones

Loads of casting news for Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class here, including the news that Mad Men‘s January Jones will play the ultimate ice queen and forever Marla girl crush Emma Frost. Jones certainly has the right look, but I’m not convinced she can actually act. Maybe there’s more than petulant Betty to Jones’s repertoire. I hope so, because I REALLY don’t want this movie to screw up Emma Frost. Read my review of Vaughn’s Kick-Ass here.

Extra! Extra! News and Stuff and Things!

  Welcome to News Day Tuesday! Hot off the presses, from their blogs to my blog to you!
piranha 

Eli Roth talks about the 3D technology for Piranha. We’ll see if it lives up to the eyeball-melting visuals of Step Up 3D! I have no doubt that it will live up to the story, in that it will not have one.  

i spit on your grave

 You can see the trailer for the remake of I Spit On Your Grave here. Yeah, it looks pretty cool, but mostly I’m excited about seeing if it holds up in Remake v. Original. Okay, I’m also excited that it’s pulled a no-rating for a theatrical release.  

zombieland poster 

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has a secret genre project in the works! That sounds so exciting! Read my review of Zombieland here.   Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Marla's leaving ALL of you for Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

That’s right! Expect tomorrow’s review of Inception to go something like this: OMG SQUEE MARLA + JGL=TRU LUV 4EVS!!!!!!!!!!!! 

In the meantime, le scoope! 

  

The first full cast pic of The Walking Dead is so damned awesome, I can scarcely stand it. You can read the lineup of writers and directors for each episode at the link. Frank Darabont will have lots more involvement than previously suspected, thank goodness. (Read my review of Darabont’s The Mist here.) 

 

Longtime showrunner Eric Kripke (who’s stepping down next year, although staying on as Executive Producer) teases what’s next for Supernatural‘s sixth season. (Read my review of Supernatural here.) 

 

You can see Ryan Reynolds in his computer-generated Green Lantern suit here. Why CGI? In order to show off all the glowy energy Green Lantern emanates. Still, kinda dumb.  Continue reading
