Who's the Next Blade? Justice League Actor Wants to Replace Wesley Snipes

There has been a lot of talk lately about Marvel possibly getting their act together and giving us another Blade movie. But even if this ever comes to fruition, there is sadly no way to guarantee that Wesley Snipes will be invited back to the role he made iconic on the big screen. And speaking of possibly having to replace Snipes as Blade one of these days, today we have word via the actor himself that none other than Justice League star Ray Fischer wants to play the Daywalker should Marvel ever actually get around to rebooting the character.

I don't know about you, but I think Ray Fisher is a solid choice to play Blade. After all, I think it's pretty safe to say that Fischer's run as Cyborg in the DC Universe has reached its end. But who knows? Maybe that planned Cyborg stand-alone spin-off movie will see

Marvel Studios Reportedly Looking at Donnie Yen and Power Rangers Star Ludi Lin for Roles in Shang-chi

It looks like Marvel Studios is actively on the hunt for actors to join their upcoming martial arts movie Shang-Chi. According to That Hashtag Show, the studio is reportedly going to be meeting with Donnie Yen (Ip Man, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Ludi Lin (Power Rangers, Aquaman) to take on roles in the movie.

Aquaman Actor Eyed To Play Shang-Chi For Marvel

Over the past little while, Marvel Studios has made it abundantly clear that they’re making a big effort to improve the level of diversity in the McU, though as of yet, we’ve seen few signs of how they intend to do this. That being said, it’s been widely reported that they’re fast-tracking Shang-Chi, which is said to be the McU’s first franchise with an Asian hero at the front of it.

Chinese-American writer Dave Callahan has been tapped to the pen the script and we’re hearing that it’s going to enter production pretty soon. But the question still remains: who’ll snag the role of the titular hero?

MTV Movie and TV Awards predictions 2019: Complete odds in all categories led by ‘Avengers,’ ‘Riverdale’ and more
Avengers: Endgame” is tied as the most nominated film at the MTV Movie and TV Awards with four bids, and we think it’ll win all of them when the awards air on June 17: Best Movie, Best Hero (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Villain (Josh Brolin) and Best Fight (Captain America vs. Thanos). That’s according to the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who have given us their forecasts here in our predictions center. Do you agree that the Marvel blockbuster will achieve a clean sweep?

These awards are decided by MTV fans voting online, so popularity counts for a lot, and it’s hard to get more popular than “Endgame,” which is the second-biggest moneymaker of all time domestically not accounting for inflation ($826 million), and the second-biggest worldwide too ($2.73 billion). In the last 13 years no movie has won without grossing at least $100 million at the domestic box office,

Shanghai Film Festival Abruptly Pulls Opening Film ‘The Eight Hundred’

Shanghai Film Festival Abruptly Pulls Opening Film ‘The Eight Hundred’
The Shanghai Film Festival has abruptly yanked its opening movie, the $80 million patriotic war drama “The Eight Hundred,” on the eve of the fest’s kickoff, Variety has confirmed. A restored 4K version of “Midnight Cowboy” will play tomorrow night instead, the organizers announced Friday evening on social media.

The cancellation of the Saturday premiere was made for unspecified “technical reasons,” which is often a euphemism for censorship problems, although a source close to the project told Variety that that is not the issue in this case and that the film had successfully passed the content censorship stage. “Technical reasons” were also cited in the withdrawal of Zhang Yimou’s “One Second” from the Berlin Film Festival in February.

While Chinese authorities have withdrawn films from other film festivals – two were pulled from the Berlinale, including “One Second” – it’s unusual for a Chinese-made film to be yanked from a Chinese festival.

Green New Deal : Did Dems Kill "Swamp Thing" ?

"Aquaman" director James Wan, executive producer of "Swamp Thing", "...doesn't really know, or understand..." why WarnerMedia canceled his live-action series on 'DC Universe', after only one episode streamed, despite conspiracy theories that the title "Swamp Thing", 'Green New Deal' and a lead actress that looks like a certain congresswoman, could have rubbed some high-profile Democrats the wrong way:

Statement From DC Universe

James Gunn Will Reportedly Help DC Rebuild Their Cinematic Universe

Last week, We Got This Covered reported that we’d heard Warner Bros. was planning to effectively reboot the DC Extended Universe. The original continuity will stand in the likes of the Wonder Woman and Aquaman franchises, but new projects – like The Batman and Supergirl – will take place in a fresh timeline that won’t connect with the old movies at all.

At the time, we believed this meant WB was attempting to sweep the past of the Dceu under the rug. However, our source now tells us that the studio is turning to a certain filmmaker who also works with Marvel to rebuild their fractured franchise.

Wgtc has heard that James Gunn has been appointed to get the Dceu back in shape. From what we understand, the diector is set to be involved in several upcoming projects as a producer, with his role as overseer of the cinematic universe

‘Dark Phoenix’ Originally Planned as Two Movies, Fox CEO Forced Deadly Summer Release — Report

‘Dark Phoenix’ Originally Planned as Two Movies, Fox CEO Forced Deadly Summer Release — Report
Dark Phoenix” opened in theaters nationwide June 7 and ended the 19-year-old “X-Men” movie franchise at rock bottom. With just $33 million at the box office over its debut weekend, “Dark Phoenix” is the lowest opener of the franchise and, according to IndieWire’s box office expert Tom Brueggemann, will most likely finish its run with a total domestic gross that is lower than the opening weekends of several previous “X-Men” movies. A new report from Deadline details the behind-the-scenes drama that led to the “Dark Phoenix” disaster and reveals the film was originally set up as a two-parter.

The latest “X-Men” movie is based on one of the franchise’s most famous comic book storylines, one writer-director Simon Kinberg wanted to adapt faithfully after botching the first “Dark Phoenix” movie adaptation as co-writer of 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand.” The events of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” rebooted the film franchise

James Wan Doesn’t Get Why ‘Swamp Thing’ Was Canceled
This weekend was a bummer for James Wan, who took to social media to lament the abrupt cancellation of the DC streaming series “Swamp Thing.”

The “Aquaman” director was an executive producer on the now-dead DC Universe horror series, which followed the story of a Louisiana scientist who mutates into the monstrous protector of Marais while a Cdc doctor investigates a deadly virus that could become a threat to humanity. The show premiered one week ago, but was suddenly cancelled by DC Universe just before the release of the second episode.

Despite this, Wan is urging DC fans to keep watching the remaining eight episodes of the show as they come out in the coming weeks, praising the cast and crew for their hard work.

Warner Bros’ Strategy Against Disney: ‘It’s Like Baseball – Hit It Where They Ain’t’

  • The Wrap
The 2019 Produced By Conference kicked off Saturday with Warner Bros.’ film and TV heads Toby Emmerich and Peter Roth discussing the future of the studio in an industry where the shadows of Disney and streaming are getting bigger and bigger.

Emmerich admitted to the Producers Guild of America members in attendance that he’s “jealous” of Disney and the army of Fox, Marvel and Lucasfilm titles they have assembled, but also said he was confident that there are still opportunities for Warner Bros. to thrive.

“Disney is going to be No. 1 for the foreseeable future,” the studio chairman said. “But I do think there’s a chance for us and other studios like Universal because Disney and Fox have a very specific type of focus. That gives us a chance to take specific risks with theatrical releases that they wouldn’t take. It’s like baseball: hit it where they ain’t.

‘Black Mirror': That DC-Marvel Connection in ‘Striking Vipers’ Was a ‘Happy Accident,’ Charlie Brooker Says
(Warning: The following story includes spoilers from the “Black Mirror” Season 5 episode “Striking Vipers.”)

Marvel and DC Comics fans finally got their long-awaited crossover on the screen, just probably not in the way they would’ve expected.

The cast for “Striking Vipers,” one of the three episodes of the fifth season of Netflix’s “Black Mirror,” includes Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anthony Mackie, Ludi Lin and Pom Klementieff. And if those names all sound familiar, it’s because they’ve all appeared in either a DC Comics-based or Marvel Studios film.

So we asked “Black Mirror” creator and co-showrunner Charlie Brooker if that was on purpose — hey, this is “Black Mirror” after all — or if the whole thing was just a happy coincidence. “That was an accident of casting,” Brooker told TheWrap. “We were just casting the best people for the job. It was afterwords we thought, ‘Oh this is quite a universes colliding.
