Marvel's "Runaways" Has Found It's Man

Marvel's "Runaways" Has Found It's Man

Several surprise hires in the Marvel universe today. First, Fox taps James McAvoy to play the young Professor Xavier in the Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class. Now, Marvel Studios has picked a writer to draft Runaways, the live action film based on the cult favorite comic book (created by Lost writer Brian K. Vaughan) about the children of supervillains who try to use their evil powers for heroic purposes.

The job has gone to Drew Pearce. Considering the number of scribes who wanted the job, Pearce is a relative unknown but seems a good match for the subject matter when you consider his previous superhero work. Pearce is a British writer who created No Heroics, a humorous UK television series about a bar that's a hangout for superheros, who aren't allowed to use their powers while knocking back pints. Pearce will draft Runaways for Pete Sollett, the Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist director who was set in April to direct.

James McAvoy Set To Play Professor X In “X-Men: First Class"

James McAvoy Set To Play Professor X In “X-Men: First Class"

Upcoming James McAvoy has signed on to play a young Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, in “X-Men: First Class,” which Matthew Vaughn is directing for Fox.

According to Fox, “First Class” will “chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were the closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.”

Patrick Stewart played the character, a bald-headed, wheelchair-bound telepath, in the original "X-Men" trilogy. Fox did not reveal if McAvoy will sport a follicle-free pate.

Fox is moving fast on the production, hiring Vaughn in early May and planning a summer start in London. The movie is being planned for a June 3, 2011, release.

Bryan Singer, who conceived the story for “First Class,” is producing along with Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.

McAvoy already has comic book movie experience, having starred in “Wanted.” The British actor was last seen in “The Last Station.”

Tommy Lee Jones Cast In Captain America

Tommy Lee Jones Cast In Captain America

Last month is was rumored that Tommy Lee Jones was up for a role in Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger. This rumor has been confirmed to be true by actress Hayley Atwell who plays Steve Rodger's love interest Peggy Carter. Watch her let the cat out of the Bag at the 2:20 mark.

It still isn't confirmed what role Jones will play in the Joe Johnston directed film, but we can speculate that he will take on the role of General Chester Phillips, the military officer who chose Steve Rogers for the super soldier program and who helped in his training soon after he took the serum. Here is a full rundown of the character according to the comic books.

General Phillips hand picked 4-F army reject Steve Rogers to become a part of the 1940 Operation Reborn experiment. In particular, he admired Rogers patriotic spirit. Later, Phillips was a part of picking Rogers as the eventual Super-Soldier Captain America. Phillips also oversaw Rogers initial training as well as some of his early missions.

Phillips was a hard nosed commander who did not tolerate errors from his charges. Phillips eventually retired from the military and lived a long life. He was killed in a rest home in Kentucky. He and Captain America were attacked by Lemurian assassins. While battling his assailants, General Phillips throat was fatally slit.

Flash And Sherlock Holmes 2 Release Dates

Flash And Sherlock Holmes 2 Release Dates

Warner Bros. has scheduled "Sherlock Holmes 2" for a mid-December 2011 release and is getting close to giving the go-ahead for a movie about beloved DC Comics superhero "Flash."

The Dec. 16 release date next year for the "Sherlock" sequel was shown on a slide during a presentation here Thursday by Warner chairman and CEO Barry Meyer. His appearance was part of TW's investor day.

Meyer said the 2011 film slate will have roughly 25 movies.

As other big releases already set, he mentioned:
-- Red Riding Hood: April 22, 2011
-- The Hangover 2: May 26
-- Green Lantern (3D): June 17
-- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (3D): July 15
-- Journey to the Center of the Earth 2 (3D): Sept. 23
-- Happy Feet 2 (3D): Nov. 18
-- New Year's Eve: Dec. 9

Given that 2011 will be the last year with a "Potter" release, Meyer said he guesses that the most successful franchise in motion picture history will have exceeded $7.5 billion in worldwide boxoffice once the final installment ends its theatrical run.

And he said his team has been preparing for the franchise's end.

Meyer particularly highlighted that DC Comics characters are key parts of Warner's future, mentioning a July 20, 2012 release date for the latest "Batman" film by Christopher Nolan and a holiday season 2012 "Superman" film.

He added that the studio is also "nearing" a greenlight for a "Flash" movie, with films featuring Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Mad magazine characters also in development.

New Jonah Hex Trailer

New Jonah Hex Trailer

IGN brings us a new Jonah Hex trailer with more new footage including him talking to the dead he just resurrected. Just like the previous one, this trailer’s also got explosives and firepower but with more heavy metal music playing the background.




Josh Brolin plays the scarred, rough-and-tumble gunslinger bounty hunter tracking a voodoo practitioner (John Malkovich) who wants to raise an army of undead to liberate the South. Megan Fox plays Leila, a gun-wielding beauty and love interest of Hex. Will Arnett will play a Union soldier who enlists Hex and is blindsided by the dirty fighting style of his enemies. Michael Shannon will play Doc Cross Williams, the bizarre ringleader of a brutal gladiator circus event. Directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears A Who)

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

JONAH HEX will open on June 18th, 2010

Jeremy Renner Signed To Play Hawkeye In Upcoming Marvel Film?

Jeremy Renner Signed To Play Hawkeye In Upcoming Marvel Film?

As we reported back in Novememebr of 2009, there was a rumor floating around that Jeremy Renner would be playing Hawkeye in an upcoming Marvel Film. The last thing we heard about all this came from Renner himself in which he said,


I haven't heard anything since I talked to them (marvel) three weeks ago. The last I knew is that they still have to find their director for 'The Avengers,' that's where he's really going to show up. They were just talking, 'Like maybe we should consider maybe hiring Hawkeye now' but there's no director on 'Avengers' so they don't really want to force-feed the director, 'Here's the whole cast.' It's a big role so they didn't want to do that to the director, so I think they might wait. I know they're interested, I'm interested, so we'll see if it works out.

They sold me on the idea, too, because I love the idea that Hawkeye's really not a superhero. He's just a man with a high skill set, so I can relate to (that). The Marvel guys are great for how they made Iron Man to be, 'Oh, that's actually plausible' so I bought it and I love that. They're really, really smart guys and I'd love to work for 'em, and we'll see if it works out.

Now according to AICN insider Renner has signed on to play Hawkeye. AICN says they check up on the source and it seems like a pretty solid lead. I would still take this news with a grain of salt until we get some solid confirmation, preferably from Renner or a Marvel representative.

It is also rumored that the reason Renner had been cast so early is because the character Hawkeye could end up making a cameo appearance in another Marvel film that is currently shooting. Again this is a rumor at this point, but one that I hope turns out to be true.

Ashton Kutcher's "Killer" Body Comes From Use Of P90X

Ashton Kutcher's "Killer" Body Comes From Use Of  P90X 

Looks like I am (30 days in) not the only one using P90X, so is Ashton Kutcher. And let me be the first to let you know that it works as long as you are dedicated to the system you will see results.

In case you're wondering what Ashton works out to at home, it's the P90X system, which also counts Pink as a fan. The P90X system is a series of 12 targeted workouts (including yoga, circuit training, and plyometrics) and a nutrition program that promises to transform your body in three months. Ashton's wife, Demi Moore, first started tweeting that the couple were using P90X last year though she had only done the yoga component of the workout series. It looks like the idea of filming Killers was big motivation for Ashton to get in shape. Shortly after getting his P90X system he tweeted, "stepping up the work outs to 2 a days. time to get serious. I'm so paranoid about doing scenes with my shirt off."

Damon Lindelof Talks Lost

Damon Lindelof Talks Lost

Lost has ended and there are so may questions that are still unanswered.

The creators of Lost Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are going on a media black-out for awhile and have chosen not to talk about the show or the finale.

You can read Lindelof’s final thoughts below:

From all of us who made the show, we really hope that you don’t feel it was a waste of your time. We hope that you spent the entire night not just thinking about the finale on a story level, but that you were emotionally affected by it.

There are two feelings that you feel when you watch the ending of a television show. The first is the feeling that you have of just understanding that the show is over and the second is what your response is to actually what’s happening on the screen.

What I liked about the Soprano’s finale was that it changed the experience because when Chase cut to black, suddenly that feeling of “the show’s over” was replaced by “is my cable out?” – he kind of changed the conversation about it.

For us, we tried to write the last two and a half hours of the show so that those two feelings would feel like they were the same thing. So, you’re feeling of saying goodbye to the show – of the show not being around anymore – was actually literally perfectly paralleling what we were showing you on the screen.

If you had an experience anything like that, then it was mission accomplished.

If you didn’t, we blew it and I apologize.

Glee Picked Up For A Third Season

Glee Picked Up For A Third Season

Fans of the hit musical comedy TV series Glee will be happy to hear that it has been picked up for a third season! I was hooked on the show when they showed the pilot episode at Comic Con last year and I haven't looked back.

The third season was announced by Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Networks Group; and Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, and here is the official press release.



"In just one year, 'Glee' has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop culture phenomenon," said Rice. "We are incredibly proud to have talent like Ryan Murphy and the 'Glee' cast in our Fox family, and we can't wait to see where Ryan takes the show in Seasons Two and Three."

"Everything about 'Glee' - from the concept to the characters to the marketing - has been innovative and risky, but with Ryan Murphy tapping into the zeitgeist, the risk has paid off with this truly remarkable series," said Reilly. "'Glee' has one of the most active, devoted fan bases I've ever seen, and we couldn't be more thrilled to give Gleeks a third season of their favorite show."

"Brad, Ian, Dante, the cast and I are all thrilled and honored by the overwhelming support of 'Glee' from Fox, the studio and our amazing fans," said Ryan Murphy, co-creator and executive producer of "Glee." "It's been a whirlwind year - from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week - and yet we all feel like we've just begun this amazing musical journey. Having time to plan ahead is wonderful, and we think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we'll have in store for them in Seasons Two and Three."

In the next all-new episode, "Glee" takes on the music of Lady Gaga when Mr. SchuesterM (Matthew Morrison) encourages the glee club members to express themselves using the pop superstar's music. Meanwhile, Rachel (Lea Michele) has a life-changing encounter, and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) embraces her inner goth in the "Theatricality" episode - featuring guest stars Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff - airing tomorrow, Tuesday, May 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The first season finale of "Glee" airs Tuesday, June 8 (8:59-10:00 PM ET/PT). The series then returns this fall to kick off its second season on Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

Mass Effect Movie In The Works

Mass Effect Movie In The Works

Legendary Pictures has picked up rights to “Mass Effect,” the Electronic Arts-BioWare video game. Mark Protosevich, the scribe who wrote “I Am Legend” and worked on “Thor,” is in talks to pen the movie, which will be produced by Avi and Ari Arad as well as Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni.

“Mass,” which debuted in 2008, is an epic sci-fi action game set in the year 2183, focusing on a human soldier and his starship, the SSV Normandy. The galaxy-spanning story involves a long-extinct race of aliens, dormant beacons and more alien species than you can shake a lightsaber at.



A sequel to the game was released in January.

The project is still in the early stages of development, though any game-to-screen undertaking would require a massive commitment. So far, humans vs. aliens movies have tended to be set on Earth, which makes those films easier to shoot while making them relatable for mass audiences.

One of the by-products of the success of “Avatar” has been showing that moviegoers will follow and invest themselves in non-human characters if given a reason to, which opens the door for more alien movies.

The players involved all have experience in undertaking giant-sized production. Legendary’s credits include co-producing such tentpoles as “The Dark Knight,” “300” and the recent “Clash of the Titans” remake. Avi Arad is the former chairman of Marvel Studios, whose Arad Prods. is developing a feature film version of video game “Drake’s Fortune.”

Tull called “Effect” “ripe for translation,” saying it had “depth, compelling characters and an engaging back story.” Arad described the game as “a parable whose conflicts mirror the ones we currently face in our own world. This story emphasizes the need for all cultures to learn to work together.”

“Effect” will fall under Legendary's co-production and co-financing agreement with Warner Bros., who will distribute the film worldwide.

The 38-year-old has been planning the new movie about King Kamehameha for the past seven years, in what he describes as the Hawaiian version of the classic flick Braveheart.

 'I'm considering calling Mel Gibson to look at the material. It's a very special story to me. King Kamehameha is special to Hawaii like William Wallace is to Scotland.'
He added:
'One of my favorite historical figures is William Wallace. I loved Mel Gibson's Braveheart and I think King Kamehameha has a lot of similar characteristics to Wallace.

'He united all the islands of Hawaii and, against all the odds, saw the bigger picture that the islands would become stronger if they became one.

'They had the same vision and fortitude to step forward and draw their own blood in the interests of their country and their people.

'King Kamehameha was one of my heroes growing up, and when I learned about William Wallace, I was drawn to him.'

Dominic Cooper To Play Tony's Daddy In Upcoming Captain America Film

Dominic Cooper To Play Tony's Daddy In Upcoming Captain America Film

Dominic Cooper will play younger Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger. Still waiting for a confirmation.

If you have seen Iron Man 2 then you know that Toy Starks father Howard Stark plays a huge role in the development of S.H.I.E.L.D and was one of the driving forces behind the team.  And we know that he will play some kind of role in the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger


Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.
Starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers and Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull and Toby Jones as Arnim Zola

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.
