Wolverine Spider-Man

by Brett White

Thanks to "X-Men: First Class," we know that a cameo from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine can be a powerful thing. But what if we had learned that a decade earlier, possibly in Sam Raimi's 2002 "Spider-Man" film? Hugh Jackman recently told the Huffington Post that that was almost a reality!

"In the first 'Spider-Man'—[Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige reminded me of this—we really tried to get me to come on and do something, whether it was a gag or just to walk through the shot or something," revealed Jackman.

Locke and Key

The beginning of the end is upon us — at least as far as "Locke & Key" is concerned.

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's celebrated comic book releases its penultimate issue, "Locke & Key: Alpha" #1, this week. But even as the comic draws to a close, the story is set for new life in the form of a film from Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the writers behind "Star Trek Into Darkness" and next summer's "Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Kurtzman spoke with Collider about the progress of the "Locke & Key" movie set up at Universal, saying that the project is being taken very seriously.

Ant-Man

The already-packed summer blockbuster season of 2015 just got a tiny bit more crowded.

Marvel Studios has moved "Ant-Man" from its original November 6, 2015 release date to a brand-new July 31, 2015 release date. That puts "Ant-Man" right in the heart of the summer season, hitting theaters just two weeks after Zack Snyder's still-untitled "Man of Steel" sequel (featuring Ben Affleck as Batman) arrives.

Vicki Vale

So far, we know two key things about the "Man of Steel" sequel. First and foremost, it will feature Batman (played by Academy Award winner, Ben Affleck). Second, the sequel will at least be partially filmed in Detroit. Now, thanks to Latino Review, there's a rumor that Batfleck will also have a love interest.

Although the casting call put out for Bruce's lady friend is oddly specific (late 20's, possessing physicality), we still have no idea as to who this so-called "love interest" will be. In the comics, Batman has actually had a plethora of girlfriends throughout the decades. That being said, here's a list of five characters who could potentially be Bruce's love interest in "Batman vs. Superman"—starting with a familiar face.

Loki

by Brett White

And the posters for "Thor: The Dark World" keep a'coming. Last week we wrote about the new character poster for Thor's new arch-rival Malekith the Accursed (played by Christopher Eccleston) in addition to a poster that put Chris Hemsworth's Thor front and center alongside Natalie Portman's Jane Foster (check them out here). Now a character poster for Tom Hiddleston's beloved trickster god Loki has been revealed, and if you've been on Tumblr, odds are you've seen it already.

This is because the Internet loves Loki, and craves Loki, and will will more Loki into existence! Or, you know, Loki's an important part of "The Dark World" so he gets a character poster. Take your pick! You can check out the full poster after the jump, but be sure to place it in proper Loki context by checking out these GIFs and the latest "Thor: The Dark World" trailer.

Ellen Page

by Brett White

Ellen Page is dipping her toes into a second comic book franchise—and this time it will be as the lead. Variety has reported that the actress currently playing Kitty Pryde in Fox's X-Men film franchise is in negotiations to headline the adaptation of Greg Rucka's spy-series "Queen and Country," originally published by Oni Press.

The film focuses on Tara Chace, an agent for England's Special Operations Section of the SIS, as she tries to stop a terrorist plot. The film is being eyed for a potential franchise, possibly in the vein of the "Bourne" series. Variety also reports that giving Page a franchise has been in the works for a long time, after working with the actress on a number of different projects.

Loki

by Brett White

Even if you aren't an active member of Hiddles' Army, you have to agree that more Loki is always a good thing. Thankfully, Tom Hiddleston and the people behind this fall's "Thor: The Dark World" thought the exact same thing.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Hiddleston opened up about the new scenes he shot for the upcoming Marvel movie, scenes that add in even more of the god of mischief.

"I don't know quite how the decision was made, but we weren't redoing things we'd done before," explained Hiddleston. "We were adding new stuff. So that was fun for me. And some of the things were scenes I'd actually pitched for a long time ago."

Ellen Page

Joss Whedon has said in the past that he wants to make a Kitty Pryde movie some day. The current big-screen Kitty Pryde—next seen in 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past"—is all about that idea.

"I have heard that, yeah! Well, I'm available," actress Ellen Page said with a laugh in a new interview with Vulture. "I love that. Kitty Pryde's awesome. I'm super grateful to be the actress who's gotten to be her, and you only desperately hope that the true fans who have a right to demand what they want and who have been passionate about these stories for a really long time, that you can pull it off for them."
