If you thought Marvel's Ant-Man had a troubled production schedule, then you clearly haven't been paying attention to the casting merry go 'round that their Doctor Strange project has turned into. Thankfully, the role is down to three very hopeful, very good front-runners.
The Hulk has come so far from the earliest days, when television producers slapped green makeup on actor Lou Ferrigno and asked him to run around in pre-shredded shirts and shorts. And every time the green giant returns to the screen, his look improves.
While the 1960s Batman TV series gave us great versions of Batmanís iconic villains, one bad guy who was left out was Two-Face. For years fans have wondered how he might have looked in tis groovy, psychedelic setting, and now, thanks to a comic book, they can find out.
Although DC Comics has many shows on the air this fall, most of them arenít connected with each other. While Arrow and The Flash are building their own universe, Gotham and Constantine are off doing their own thing on Fox and NBC, and there are currently no plans to cross over with the CW shows... well, intentionally cross over.
Guardians of the Galaxy is on track to being the highest grossing movie of the year, not to mention possibly the most popular Marvel outing yet. But the love for all things, Groot, Gamora, Rocket, Drax and Star-Lord is being lost on the Chineses. Well, lost in translation anyway.

What's the point of having a lot of money if you're not going to have some fun with it? It's why we so often see billionaire characters in Hollywood movies throw big, lavish parties - and it turns out that Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is no different. What does set Luthor's big bash apart, however, is his very special guest list, which reportedly includes a good number of superheroes.
This past summerís San Diego Comic-Con was a rather disappointing one for comic book movie fans. While many Ė including myself Ė had incredibly high expectations of big reveals, we were actually left learning very little big news. This past week, however, has been what I expected Comic-Con to be.
The big Marvel movie news this week was that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining Captain America 3, which is set to be an adaptation of the crossover Civil War. In the comics, Steve Rogers was killed after Civil War ended, and while itís unlikely heíll die in Captain America 3, Marvel may be setting up the patriotic superhero for demise in the coming years. Here are reasons they would do that.
Poor Jon Favreau. Not only was he replaced by Shane Black as Iron Man 3ís director but it has now been revealed that his character, Happy Hogan, was originally supposed to die in the blockbuster. Thankfully the studio had a change of heart and decided that Happy would end up in a coma instead.
Among the many DC Comics movie announcements yesterday was not only the confirmation of Jason Momoa playing Aquaman, but that the King of Atlantis would get a solo film.

DC has a unique opportunity to define a new chapter of Wonder Woman's legacy with this 2017 movie. With the right director, DC could craft something spectacular and iconic with Wonder Woman. But who'd be up to the task of taking on a superheroine movie that even Joss Whedon found tricky? Here are five filmmakers who could do Wonder Woman justice.
Gosling hasnít flirted with tentpoles over the course of his career. He makes movies like Drive, The Place Beyond the Pines, Blue Valentine and Lars and the Real Girl -- smaller, offbeat and director-driven movies that find niche audiences but arenít, you know, superhero movies.
While the The CW hopes to continue spinning off the success of Arrow, DC rolled out their plans for a concurrently expanding cinematic universe. The development will obviously have an effect on the small-screen superheroes but to what extent remains unclear. And here we thought the new addition on last week's episode was big news, not to mention the bombshell the series dropped. Can any of the easter eggs in ďSaraĒ possibly put the spotlight back on DC's TV shows?
Zack Snyderís Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has spent most of its time filming out in the Midwest, targeting cities like Detroit and Chicago, but the production has apparently been putting together something gigantic in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
While the X-Men film franchise moves forward with projects like X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and a rumored live-action TV show, one aspect of the series have been relatively quiet recently. Back in May, reports indicated that Channing Tatum would play Gambit in a standalone movie, the actor repeatedly expressing his interest in playing the Raginí Cajun. But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
To mark the solemn anniversary of Christopher Reeveís death last Friday, his son, Matthew Reeve, attended New York Comic Con where he made a stunning declaration to honor his father.

Warner Bros. and DC have big plans for the silver screen, as they revealed today. However, while the DC Cinematic Universe is being built, the Arrow and Flash world is continuing to grow. Will the movies affect how the TV universe is handled? Read on for our take.
In the same way that Marvel Studios had to up its game when going from making solo movies to the first Avengers, DC Comics is going to have to bring all its got when it comes to making Justice League. This not only means uniting their biggest heroes, but also having them square off against an extremely dangerous threat with a very big plan.
After months of waiting, Warner Bros. and DC Comics finally gave fans what they were asking for: the planned live-action DC films. Starting with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, WB will release 10 DC films between 2016 and 2020. From solo films like Wonder Woman and Aquaman to ensemble films like Suicide Squad and Justice League Part One and Two thereís a lot to take in, but weíve got you covered! Hereís everything we know so far about DCís films.
Between now and 2020, Warner Bros. and DC Comics are doing everything in their power to get their most popular superhero characters up on the big screen. But those of you who are nervous about the lack of Batman and Superman titles on this list need not be worried - apparently, they are on the way.
Could the DC Cinematic Continuum finally have its act together? Something tells us the middle road houses the actual truth, as we've picked three winners and three losers from today's news blast.

Slowly but surely, Warner Bros. and DC Comics are filling out the ranks of their big screen Justice League. We've known for a while now that Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot are playing Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, respectively, and rumors have suggested actors like Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher will be taking parts like Aquaman and Cyborg.

This Week In Home Entertainment: X-Men Days Of Future Past, Steven Spielberg Director's Collection And More
I know it may seem a little early, but the studios are already thinking about the holidays. As a result, there are a whole slew of releases out this week. This includes a few new seasons of TV, an animated kids flick, a few movies that have been released on Blu-ray in special edition sets or for the first time and more.
In addition to reintroducing younger versions of the mutants known as Beast and Mystique, X-Men: First Class also did its part to establish a new dynamic between the two characters. Bonding over the fact that they couldn't show their true faces in public, the two of them sparked a romantic relationship that wound up getting kind of interrupted by the Cuban Missile Crisis.
For the past 24 hours or so, we've been completely distracted by the news of Civil War brewing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... but that doesn't mean we've completely forgotten about the Doctor Strange casting race. In recent weeks and months we've heard a constant stream of rumors about who will play the Master of the Mystic Arts, and while names like Joaquin Phoenix, Ethan Hawke and Keanu Reeves have been mentioned as potential candidates for the gig, Marvel has not yet revealed their choice.
Robert Downey Jr. has been in the superhero game for over seven years, and he shows no signs of stoping. Next year, Tony Stark will return alongside his fellow Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it was revealed yesterday that Downey is in final negotiations to join Captain America 3. Although he still seeks other creative endeavors, these superhero movies mean a lot to him. Well, Marvelís at least. Other superhero movies, not so much.
There is now a massive threat looming over the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No, Iím not talking about Thanos, Iím talking about Civil War. Last night it was revealed that the massively popular 2006 comic book crossover will soon be coming to the big screen in the form of the MCUís Phase Three. We expect the consequences of the events to be tremendous, with at least some casualties. But who will be biting the bullet?
Itís safe to say that Marvel has enough material for its cinematic universe in the coming ears, whether itís introducing new superheroes like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange or adapting storylines like Civil War. However, despite the announcements of new characters and new developments, thereís still one dangling thread regarding the MCU: whatís the plan for Thanos?
In a surprising move from Marvel, Robert Downey Jr. is in final negotiations to star in 2016ís Captain America 3. The movie will adapt the 2006 event Civil War, which saw Marvel superhumans on opposing sides of the Superhuman Registration Act and shook the Marvel world to its core. Here is everything you need to know about that story, as well as what it might mean for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If you were going to hire Robert Downey Jr. to star in your comic movie, how much would you pay him? Take that number, head on into the story, and see how it compares to what he's bringing home for his role in Captain America 3.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to change is a massive way. As we learned earlier tonight, Robert Downey Jr. is now in negotiations to star in Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America 3 - a film that is expected to launch big screen adaptation of the massive 2006 Marvel Comics crossover event known as Civil War. What you may not know, however, is that we have already started to see evidence of this brewing conflict in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Civil War is raging on planet Earth. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) stands on one side of the battle. Captain America (Chris Evans) stands on the other. How does this affect the protectors of the universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy?
Despite the fact that they had zero experience making blockbuster movies, directors Joe and Anthony Russo absolutely knocked it out of the park making Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Their action sequences were absolutely thrilling, they demonstrated a great sense of story and pacing, and they got amazing performances out of each and every actor.
With Marvel Comics revealing earlier today that they would be rebooting the famed crossover storyline Civil War, we immediately began speculating that the event would bleed into the goings-on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We suggested that it was possible that Captain America and Iron Man would end up going toe-to-toe at some point down the line, offering up The Avengers 4 as a possibility. It turns out that we may have been way off. It turns out that Civil War may actually be starting in 2016.
If rumors can be believed, there is a real chance that Spider-Man could someday end up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The webslinger has been forced to live outside the Avengers bubble the last few years thanks to the fact that Sony owns the rights to the character, but reports have suggested that barriers may be coming down in the near future.
Next year, Supergirl will air on CBS, and whoever is chosen to play Kara Zor-El will have a lot riding on her. Fortunately, Laura Vandervoort, who played Kara on Smallville from 2007-2011, has some advice for the next actress to wear the cape and 'S' shield, including acting tips and suggestions on footwear.
If the rumors flying around about the future of Marvel Studios are true, thereís a possibility that we may not be seeing the likes of Captain America or Thor in The Avengers 3. Whether it's a contractual tactic, or there's some sort of thematic hook that this report is hanging on, this means two things: people are going to be upset, and there's going to be some room for some fresh faces.
Before they teamed up to defeat Loki and his invading Chitauri forces at the end of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, Captain America and Iron Man didn't exactly get along. They eventually put their personal differences aside to fight evil and even became friends, but if new developments at Marvel Comics are any indication, it may not be too long before the two Marvel Cinematic Universe heroes once again find themselves at each other's throats.
Aside from the casting of Gal Gadot and the official image of her released at San Diego Comic-Con, there hasnít been much revealed about the cinematic Wonder Woman. Her looks is obviously inspired by the New 52 , but will her background be altered in any way? Luckily, it seems that Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will be following her modern origin quite closely.
Despite being the Marvel Cinematic Universeís biggest star. Robert Downey Jr.ís praises for the films arenít limited to his own. Earlier this year, he stated Guardians of the Galaxy was Marvelís best movie, and by judging by its box office return and heaps of critical praise, everyone else thought so to. However, now heís flip-flopped and said this Marvel movie is taking the #1 spot.
Everything there is to know about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is here, including release date changes, new casting and all the latest news on the Batman vs. Superman project in one place.
Gotham is a series that is more gritty than glittering, but that seems to be exactly what the doctor has ordered. Fans have flocked to the DC Entertainment series airing on Fox across its first few weeks, and it seems like the show has numerous characters and directions to still develop. With that in mind, it's no surprise that Fox would want to sign on for additional episodes.
Though he wasnít the first cinematic Batman, Michael Keatonís portrayal of the Caped Crusader was much different than what we had gotten before, and heís considered by many to be one of the best Batman actors of all time. However, despite having a good experience in his two films, Keaton opted not to return for a third installment, and his reason for doing so is quite simple.
While DC Comics builds slowly builds their movie universe, Arrow and The Flash are wasting no time in joining forces. Both shows will crossover later this year, and thereís plenty of fun details on what weíll see when the Scarlet Speedster and Emerald Archer team up to fight the forces of evil...and maybe tussle a bit with each other along the way.
When will Marvel let others see this footage? It has played the two major Comic-Con events now, and is ready to be shown. Avengers: Age of Ultron doesnít NEED marketing. People know itís coming, and itís going to be humongous. So let the fans see it, Marvel.
