Michelle Pfeiffer Will Play Janet Van Dyne In Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’
Amidst the hype for “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” Marvel Studios announced at its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con that Michelle Pfeiffer will play Janet Van Dyne, the long-lost wife of Hank Pym and the original Wasp in next summer’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” In the first “Ant-Man,” Van Dyne was a Shield agent who fought alongside Pym using the Ant-Man and Wasp suits they developed together. The two worked extremely well together, but in 1987, their partnership…and marriage…came to a tragic end when they were tasked with stopping a Soviet missile from killing millions of innocent. »

‘The Flash’ Movie Getting Retooled as a ‘Flashpoint’ Adaptation; Could This Affect the DCEU?
Today at the Comic-Con panel for DC, Warner Bros. revealed that their The Flash movie would be based on the 2011 comic book series Flashpoint. For those unfamiliar with the comics, which were written by Geoff Johns (who now oversees the Dceu), Flashpoint is essentially a big reset button. Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) runs so fast that he travels back in time and prevents his mother from being killed. However, thanks to The Butterfly Effect, this has major repercussions across the DC universe. The Season 3 premiere of The Flash TV series also attempted their own version of Flashpoint … »

‘Black Panther’ Footage Recap: Here’s What Got a Standing Ovation at Sdcc
Everything about Black Panther looks great. The cast, the director, the costumes, the Wakanda design, the entirety of that first trailer – it’s pretty much batting a thousand. Sure, I’m excited for Avengers: Infinity War; but if I’m being honest – I’m really excited for Black Panther. Heck – I can’t stop humming that damn music from the trailer. At the Comic Con Panel for Black Panther, director Ryan Coogler, Kevin Feige, and the cast (Chadwick Boseman, Michael Jordan, Forrest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Danai Gurira, and Lupita Nyong’o) previewed exclusive footage from the upcoming Marvel franchise-starter. … »

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Unleashes “Thunderous” New Footage at Sdcc
Marvel’s really hit their stride lately, seamlessly jumping between genres within the confines of the so-called ‘superhero film’. Spider-Man: Homecoming was a high-school comedy; Guardians of the Galaxy – a space-opera; Doctor Strange – basically Inception. This commitment to varying tone and style has put to bed the dreaded ‘superhero fatigue’ everyone yammers on about every three or so months. As long as Marvel can continue churning out aesthetically and tonally ambitious movies, there’s seemingly no end to their cultural dominance. Case in point: Thor: Ragnarok. Not only does the third Thor flick not look like … »

New ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ and ‘Black Panther’ Posters Want a Place on Your Wall
At Comic-Con, Marvel debuted new Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther posters, and they both looked terrific. The Thor poster in particular is glorious, making use of the bright colors, big cast of characters, and really letting you know that this Thor movie is going to be radically different than the first two. I wouldn’t be surprised for Ragnarok to be the most successful of the Thor movies if the film itself is good. At the very least, it will probably have the biggest opening weekend of the trilogy. That’s not to diminish the Black Panther poster. Of … »
