Team Cap or Team Iron Man is the biggest question of the year (you know, aside from the presidential election, which is sort of a big deal). Forget Batman and Superman and the X-Men and Apocalypse — Captain America: Civil War is going to really shake things up. In keeping with the film's government (and anti-government) theme, Marvel has released two new poster images inviting you to — no surprise here — choose a side.
According to Steven Soderbergh, it may be a couple of years before we return to The Knick (or something like it), but in the meantime the semi-retired filmmaker is working on an ambitious HBO film with Sharon Stone, a potential return to the big screen, and producing three television series. We can add another project to his growing pile of work, as Soderbergh is set to reunite with Oscar-nominated Out of Sight scribe Scott Frank for a new Netflix series.
The only negative aspect of John Wick: Chapter Two is the film’s release date — we’ll have to wait until 2017 to watch Keanu Reeves wipe out a bunch of bad guys and to see what’s up with that new dog he’s been spotted with on set. Reeves isn’t making the wait any easier in his latest interview, where he teases the evolution of his character, the sequel’s new location and Laurence Fishburne’s mysterious role.
Like last year’s Omaze charity campaign for Star Trek Beyond, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s partnership with the organization has yielded some similarly charming results. The latest video promoting the charity drive features Ben Affleck surprising fans during the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, with the actor hiding out in the new Batmobile and interacting with the crowd — and throwing some shade at Superman, obviously.
Zack Snyder is going to be pretty busy for the foreseeable future. In addition to releasing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in March, the director is prepping Justice League: Part One before presumably heading right back into work for Part Two. That should keep him occupied until at least sometime in 2018, but what will Snyder do next? More superhero movies? Maybe. But he also has a non-DC flick on his mind, and while it sounds a bit crazy, it really shouldn’t surprise you.
Superhero films are really into the whole “choose a side” thing this year. Batman and Superman, the X-Men and Apocalypse (okay, that’s easy — Oscar Isaac and Michael Fassbender’s side, obviously), and the most brutal super-battle of them all: Iron Man and Captain America. Civil War is coming, and while the trailers have given us plenty to consider in the fight between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, Marvel’s latest batch of images gives us more to contemplate.
With Deadpool, Fox successfully (like, really successfully — record-breaking-successfully) rebooted a character who had previously been horrifically adapted in another, lesser film, and they did so without recasting the role. Miracles do exist. Now that Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth has been given a second cinematic life, could the same be done with another actor from X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Liev Schreiber, perhaps?
A few weeks back, Divergent series director Robert Schwentke abruptly dropped out of the final sequel, Ascendant, a little over a month before the latest installment hits theaters. With Allegiant on the horizon and one more Divergent sequel to go, Lionsgate has quickly found Schwentke’s replacement in Age of Adaline director Lee Toland Krieger.
Lucasfilm released an announcement video a couple of weeks ago to kick off production on Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing just a tiny glimpse of footage that made it look as if Rian Johnson was picking up where J.J. Abrams left off. If you had any doubts that Episode VIII would begin where The Force Awakens ends, Daisy Ridley has confirmed that this is definitely the case — and that Luke Skywalker will have much more to do this time around.
Shane Black’s Predator sequel was first announced a couple of years ago, though with Black completing The Nice Guys and working on a western pilot for Amazon, Fox had yet to make any promises about a release date — much less when Black and collaborator Fred Dekker would begin filming. But with the studio setting several new release dates over the weekend, it seems that the duo are finally gearing up to head into production on The Predator.
