More cream of casting news has risen to the surface of “The Dark Knight Rises” production. As the last actor updates to Christopher Nolan’s Batman film finale trickle in, roles are bound to shrink to mere collected seconds on screen. Maybe that’s why our latest update consists of not one, but three fresh faces to the cast.
According to Variety, “Rescue Me” actor Daniel Sunjata is in early talks to portray a Special Forces operative.
Red head Diego Klattenhoff—having been mostly remanded to the small screen save an appearance in “Mean Girls”—has won the part of a rookie cop. Finally, the trade asserts that character actor Ben Gorman (seen in “Layer Cake”) is also in talks for a supporting role. Read More...
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about “Ant-Man” — the movie set to feature Marvel’s shrinking superhero as envisioned by stylistically distinctive writer and director Edgar Wright. As Wright himself said, Hank Pym’s lower profile within the Marvel Universe fortunately means means more creative attention and less deadline anxiety.
SuperHeroHype caught the first “Ant-Man” update since January’s news that Wright had resumed writing the script with Joe Cornish, whose festival-circuiting film “Attack the Block” stars frequent Wright collaborator Nick Frost.
Speaking at London’s first-ever Kapow! Comic Con this past Saturday, Cornish briefly updated attendees on the status of the “Ant-Man” script. Read More...
As “The Dark Knight Rises” rounds out its cast, roles of newly added characters grow smaller. But however much screen time he may end up filling, the latest addition out of the Batman camp poses to piece together more about the film’s story.
You may not know Josh Pence by name (or by face, for that matter) but chances are, you know his body.
The actor, who was digitally superimposed with Armie Hammer’s visage to portray one half of the Winklevoss twins in “The Social Network,” has been cast as young Ra’s Al Ghul within Christopher Nolan’s final film featuring the Caped Crusader. Read More...
Tintin, the beloved Belgian boy adventurer of comic book fame is well on his way to the big screen.
At the cusp of the New Year we even saw some images from the motion-capture 3D movie, titled “The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn” after the eleventh title in artist Herge’s series. But unlike each and every Hollywood-handled comic franchise under the sun, Tintin is lucky to be a particular passion project for the superteam handling him, director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson.
No doubt the character and his expansive comic book adventures are equally beloved by Edgar Wright and Steven Moffat, handlers of cult-revered properties “Scott Pilgrim” and “Doctor Who,” and Tintin’s inaugural screenwriters. But the film is first in a series of 3D ventures, and as broadcast out of the UK on Richard Bacon’s Radio 5 talk show and related via Bleeding Cool, the second Tintin movie may already have a new screenwriter.
“I’ve been hired to write ‘Tintin,’” popular children's novel author Anthony Horowitz revealed.
Today the CW will start playing a promo forecasting the final episodes of “Smallville” and hinting at Clark Kent’s transformation into Superman. It seems like we’ve been saying that forever, but rest assured, you’ve never heard a “Smallville” promo like this.
That’s right, the CW went ahead and licensed John Williams’ classic score from 1978’s original “Superman.” (This track is titled "The Planet Krypton.”) As pointed out by EW, it is also worth noting the word “believe,” part of the iconic 1978 “Superman” tag line, “You will believe a man can fly.”
It might have hit a day before April Fools, but the news that Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger would be spinning off his unofficial headline-inhabiting persona, “The Governator,” into a Stan Lee-penned animated series and comic book, has since proven itself fact.
Further solidifying the eccentric entertainment venture is an announcement emanating from the MIPTV Media Market Conference in Cannes.
As reported by Deadline, the Former Governor has announced plans for a “Governator” feature film — which, of course, will be seen in 3-D. (There is as of yet no indication studios plan to develop a NEW dimension of viewing to accompany the franchise, but it is still early.)
Schwarzenegger said the movie will be ready in early 2013.
Marvel Zombies know Stan Lee is a funny guy.
When the iconic collaborative creator of Marvel’s foundational roster of characters spoke to Hero Complex about his “Thor” cameo at Saturday’s Kids Choice Awards—Lee plays a truck driver who tries using his semi to wrench the Norse God’s famous hammer from the ground—it was typically tongue-n-cheek.
“Did I do it well? Did I look like a truck driver?” Lee asked. “Because I’m a method actor. I bought myself a truck and I rehearsed.”
Lee’s next cameo idea though, was ironic even for the cheeky Marvel architect.
All of DC fandom let out a collective gasp when news broke—rather anti-climactically—that Warner Bros. aims to release a “Justice League” movie as soon as 2013.
The forecast came courtesy of studio boss Jeff Robinov during an interview for an LA Times profile, while the comic news blogosphere—currently juggling updates on Zack Snyder’s “Superman: Man of Steel” and Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight Rises”—speculated about the versions of the icons filling the future league’s ranks.
Speaking to HeyUGuys during the UK premiere of his film “Sucker Punch,” Snyder clarified where his “Man Of Steel” might fit within a future “Justice League." Read More...
Over the years, actor Paul Giamatti has racked up prestige points and solidified his position as a thespian at the height of his craft. Certainly, the actor is in a position within the industry to make demands.
As it turns out, the “Sideways” and “American Splendor” star would like nothing more than to be a part of the “Spider-Man” franchise’s developing reboot — but not just any part. Giamatti sees himself as The Rhino. Read More...
If fan reaction to seeing actress Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman for the first time was a bit mixed, you might say it was completely because of the hero’s revamped costume. After all, that’s all there was to judge.
Whether you think Diana’s new duds were off-color or just a little too PVC, filming on the David E. Kelly-drafted NBC pilot is still full-steam ahead. And as production goes, so do local spies. One Daily BLAM! reader caught a glimpse (along with some shots and video) of the new Wonder Woman and her revised costume in action.
On the Hollywood Boulevard set of the developing show we can see some definite edits made to the rehashed costume. Read More...
