‘Spider-Man’ Movies Will Always Have a Straight, White Hero

‘Spider-Man’ Movies Will Always Have a Straight, White Hero

That's not the way it reads if you click through to the Gawker article. It has requirements for Spider-Man, which doesn't restrict him to only being Peter Parker and actually allows for any race, but then says he should be straight with the caveat that he could be gay but only if Marvel ever produces a comic with a gay Spider-Man. It's the requirements for Peter Parker or a Peter Parker-specific Spider-Man that state he must be straight and white. So, as long as they use Peter, he won't be gay or a race other than Caucasian American from New York. They could use a different character as Spider-Man, such as Miles Morales, and allow him to be any race they'd like.

Disney and Marvel Sued Over ‘Iron Man’ Armor

Disney and Marvel Sued Over ‘Iron Man’ Armor

Have they ever read an Iron Man comic prior to 2000? "Tony Stark only wore spandex and minimal pieces of armor" has to be the silliest explanation I've ever heard. "[...]centers on the protagonist as he creates and builds increasingly powerful and futuristic versions of this body armor that allow him to fly, shoot projectiles, and perform other superhuman feats." Umm,,, This lawsuit isn't going anywhere.

‘Bourne 5’ Won't Bring Damon and Renner Together

‘Bourne 5’ Won't Bring Damon and Renner Together

Aaron Cross needs another film on his own before doing a crossover with Bourne. Make these next two movies and then do a crossover after.

Edgar Wright Loses ‘Ant-Man’ Script Credit

Edgar Wright Loses ‘Ant-Man’ Script Credit

@renodc The script that Wright and Cornish wrote back in 2001 wasn't quite the same script that they were going to shoot with. They were still working on rewrites up until Wright quit the film. That's fairly common practice. As for Rudd, he signed on because he wanted to work with Wright and was as surprised as everyone that Wright left. Marvel brought in McKay to work on the script and because they'd worked together in the past McKay and Rudd rewrote it together.

‘Constantine’ in Jeopardy as NBC Stops Production

‘Constantine’ in Jeopardy as NBC Stops Production

People seem to be neglecting the other part of the story, which is the most obvious reason for Constantine to stop production. Hannibal is set to air in the timeslot in the spring. It really only makes logistical sense to cap the first season at 13 episodes. The fact that the ratings have improved each week after the initial drop in the second week, is likely more than making a case to keep the show around for a second season.

‘Arrow’ Season 3: Brandon Routh Teases the Atom Costume

‘Arrow’ Season 3: Brandon Routh Teases the Atom Costume

They didn't explicitly say he wouldn't be able to shrink. Just that they likely wouldn't feature that ability on 'Arrow.' There's the possibility, though, that Palmer could find his way over to 'The Flash,' or possibly other spinoffs, which would allow him to use such abilities.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Title, Logo and July 2017 Release Date Announced

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Title, Logo and July 2017 Release Date Announced

Technically, in Norse mythology, Ragnarok was an apocalyptic event that destroyed everything that existing for it all to start anew. There wasn't just one single Ragnarok. It was cyclical.

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

I still see this as a case of Norton getting his feathers ruffled over the creative control that Feige and company imposed upon the film, Norton wanting a big figure to come back after they had a pretty antagonistic time for a bit there, Feige and Marvel holding their ground, and then the studio finally saying they'd rather be involved with someone else and recasting. Sad thing is it sounds like the version of "The Incredible Hulk" that Norton and Leterrier wanted to release would've been a stronger movie than the one Marvel put out. For my money, Norton would've been a far more interesting wildcard in the ensemble in Avengers. (I love Ruffalo as an actor, and he's fine in the role, but it didn't really do much for me.) And they're still not in any rush to do more solo Hulk movies.

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

@rjh094 Well, that all depends on perspective. For some actors, being locked into one role for the better part of a decade is quite limiting and unfulfilling, no matter how much money could be gained from it.

Is Lea Seydoux Playing M16 Agent Miranda Frost in ‘Bond 24’?

Why would they bring back Miranda Frost? It's not as if she was an essential or thoroughly memorable Bond girl, all respect to Rosamund Pike.

"Superman Survivors," eh? Well, that's just a bit ironic, if not calculated.

I'm with you, @therealGoku. This looks more like the Schumacher styles of Batmobile than Burton's original.

So, he's only the Rhino for 4 minutes, meaning we'll likely see him as Aleksei Sytsevich more than in the armor. This is setting him up to be part of the Sinister Six for either the third or fourth films.

This sounds about as fan-wanky as it could possibly get, as far as Kasdan's rumored story.

Will Nightwing Appear in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’?

This movie sounds dumber and dumber the more I hear about it. Yes, let's just chock the whole thing full of DC heroes. If you can't take time for development, might as well just go the Cliffs Notes route with one movie.
