All Superhero Movies to 2020 (UPDATED...AGAIN)

Guess what happens when we say, "We have the final, final, final version of the list."

Story by Matt Cummings

Marvel shocked the world (again) this week with the announcement that Ant-Man was getting a sequel, and that the studio had added three more films to its release schedule. We knew our original story back in April couldn't hold, but that's our dumb luck assuming we know the inner mind of the Marvel machine. The The Kree Supreme Intelligence has got nothing on Marvel Studios!

Anyways, we've had some time to digest everything and thought it was time to re-re-re-update the master list of DC/Marvel films through 2020. The changes ain't pretty, and there's some interesting suggestions embedded within. Read our thoughts after checking out the list:
2016
February 12: Deadpool (Fox)
March 25: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
May 6: Captain America: Civil War
May 27: X-Men: Apocalypse (Fox)
August 5: Suicide Squad
October 7: Gambit (Fox)
November 4: Doctor Strange
2017
March 3: Untitled Wolverine sequel (Fox)
May 5: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
June 2: Fantastic Four 2 (Fox)
June 23: Wonder Woman
July 28: Marvel Studios co-produced Spider-Man film (Sony)
November 3: Thor: Ragnarok
November 17: Justice League, Part 1
2018
February 16: Black Panther (new date)
March 23: The Flash
May 4: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1
July 6: Ant-Man and the Wasp (new addition)
July 13: Untitled Fox Mystery Marvel film
July 20: Spider-Man Animated Feature (Sony)
July 27: Aquaman
2019
March 8: Captain Marvel (new date)
April 5: Shazam
May 3: Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2
June 14: Justice League, Part 2
July 12: Inhumans
2020
April 3: Cyborg
May 1: Untitled Marvel Studios film (new addition)
June 19: Green Lantern Corps
July 10: Untitled Marvel Studios film (new addition)
November 6: Untitled Marvel Studios film (new addition)

What We've Learned
Both next year and 2017 haven't changed...yet...but that could change if Fox re-tools or outright abandons The Fantastic Four sequel. MEMO to Fox: time to let it go, guys.

Along with the three Marvel additions, the big changes here are both Black Panther and Captain Marvel. In the case of the latter, we'll have to wait five more months than we planned. Some have complained (and rightfully so) that Carol Danvers and women in general deserve their own standalones sooner rather than later. We have to agree, more because we want to actually see who they've chosen finally assume that role. At the same time, if we've waited this long, we can wait five more months. If it gets delayed again, then we'll really start to worry.

Weaving itself into that news, Ant-Man getting a sequel had become a no-brainer, as it's now outgunned the original Captain America and Thor films. I hate saying that, because they're both so good and Ant-Man was...well...Ant-Man. But, it getting a sequel makes sense, considering all the talent has already been assembled for one film, Director Peyton Reed will most likely return, and the fact of the matter is that CM and BP are still (officially) looking for directors and a cast.

Getting back to BP, notice that Marvel did something they hardly ever do: abandon a date. I wondered why that happened, until I began to think of Ben Affleck. It's entirely possible that Batman will see a release on July 6th, returning The Dark Knight to the summer movie schedule. But then you look at 2020, and you see a lot of changes. Three Marvel films and a change for Green Lantern to GL Corps. Perhaps WB still doesn't have confidence in the property, as adding the entire Lantern Corps seems like someone thinking they need more rather than less. Then there's the Marvel films: what will those be? More Inhumans is unlikely, unless they start shooting back-to-back. Perhaps that's a chance to add Cosmic into the mix (Nova or perhaps Galactus if Fox gives back FF).

Either way, the plate has been updated with tasty new dishes, with some items appearing later in our meal and others perhaps primed to leave all together. What's your take on the changes we've reported here?

Boom! Studios’ The Woods Heading To TV

THR is reporting Boom! Studios’ popular comic The Woods is heading to television.

Boom! CEO Ross Richie will exec produce along with the company’s president of development, Stephen Christy. Josh Levy, senior vp television, will co-exec produce.

Created by Batman writer James Tynion IV and artist Michael Dialynas, Woods tells of 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from a preparatory high school in suburban Milwaukee who vanish without a trace … only to re-appear light years away in the primordial forest of another planet.

Movie Review: 'Pan'

The re-re-rehash of Pan never, ever captures the magic of the Disney classic.

Review by Matt Cummings

Some ideas are best left on the storyboards back at the office. A Casblanca remake/sequel? Get out of town. A Ben Hur re-imagining? Sadly, that one's nearing a release. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell Warner Bros. that a Peter Pan remake was just as bad an idea. The result - Pan - never, ever captures the fun of the original, sacrificing story for only mediocre special effects and plenty of bad press.

Rather than stick to a solid, traditional plot, Pan sticks us with several uncomfortable origin story facts: Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) actually has two hands and is a genuinely nice guy, and Peter (Levi Miller in his first role) - who wears an on-the-nose reference to his name around his neck - is an abandoned child in WWII England. His mother, a pseudo cameo in Amanda Seyfried, is a bad ass Neverland warrior who decides she can't protect the boy even with an army behind her, and that a war zone is somehow safer. When the 12-year-old Peter is captured and delivered to Neverland (as part of some bizarre child slavery subplot), he comes face to face with their oppressive overlord Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). Requiring pixie dust to maintain his youth, Blackbeard will stop at nothing to gain its power, while his enemies Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara), Hook, and Peter fight to free Neverland and discover the true whereabouts of Peter's mother.

In an effort to make his film more PC-friendly, Director Joe Wright has actually robbed Pan of its individuality. Content to spend its budget on glitzy effects, Wright dashes any hopes for an excellent story, leaving any hope for a real Neverland as far away as a distant star. We've seen recent evidence of how important universe building is, failing miserably when ill-used (Terminator: Genisys). And yet, it all could have worked, if Wright hadn't also made some terrible decisions in his casting. Jackman is never bad in anything, and here he's actually pretty good. Miller is very good, leading many scenes himself and proving that he can be a commodity once he's clear of the stain of Pan. But Hedlund is nothing more than an Indiana Jones rip-off, never quite getting a line on Hook, and Mara's controversial casting (a Native American was originally envisioned) doesn't help either. There's also the strange attire of the Neverland crowd, looking like a cross between Native dress and New Orleans party.

And then there's thoroughly random elements, like a cameo by Cara Delevingne as not one but three mermaids, without creating any idea of their role as anything more than hidden city bouncers. There's also an odd chant of Nivana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' that is totally out of place - like more than 50 years out of place - as Peter's orphanage is delivered to Blackbeard. The fact that Seyfried is poorly used here - along with a non-speaking Tinkerbell that's featured for all of 30 seconds - tells me Wright really never had his vision in place, because no edit could have saved this one. It's clear that someone's idea of a somewhat familiar origin story is really just a completely foreign one shoehorned in with familiar character names from a beloved Disney film.

A summer sure-fire soon became an October ditch, and from the looks of it, Pan has deserved every bit of that criticism. It's unnecessarily pompous, boring in many sections, with uneven action and special effects that do nothing to legitimize a universe that frankly didn't need a reboot. It's the kind of decision audiences deride, and with good reason. No doubt that argument will find new voices, as this one could run aground before it even sets sail.

Pan is rated PG for fantasy action violence, language and some thematic material and has a runtime of 111 minutes.

Giveaway: #TheWalkMovie T-SHIRT

Wanna win a shirt from the Hit film THE WALK?

Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man - Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.


Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photo realistic techniques and IMAX 3D ® wizardry, The Walk is true big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. The film is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the Towers of the World Trade Center.

Movie Review: 'He Named Me Malala'

Is the the powerful and inspiring He Named Me Malala also worthy of Oscar glory?

Review by Matt Cummings

The story behind the Pakistani 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai is inspiring in a way that's hard to find these days. So much of our western culture focuses on wealthy socialites, rap stars, and prima donna athletes that when the genuine article arrives, we wonder if a marketing company had something to do with it. But if the documentary He Named Me Malala proves one thing, it's that its subject seems genuinely inspiring, while making a strong case for Oscar contention.

It focuses on the life of Yousafzai, who became an international symbol for advancing human rights, even after a Taliban attack left her nearly dead. Rather than disappear into fear of further attacks, Malala and her father Ziauddin defied the Taliban, and in doing became the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. That's a tall achievement, especially when a bullet smashes through your skull, leaving you partially paralyzed. The film takes us through her recovery, visits with aspiring girls and grieving parents, and celebrates the will of one woman to demand equal treatment, even when her people's history demands something very different.

Mixing a variety of portable HD cameras with beautiful pastel animation, Malala transitions rather effortlessly between them, though some claim it contributes to the film's detriment. Forget it: the animation is expertly timed and keeps us from depending on talking heads to move the story forward. We learn that her name was taken from a brave teenager who encouraged her countrymen to stand and fight, and how her father began questioning the Taliban, earning their wrath and a promise of revenge. But where Director/Producer Davis Guggenheim shines is during the home scenes, when Malala and family can just be a cheery, kidding, loving unit. Seriously, some of the best parts involve Malala and her brothers talking crap about one another, or Malala finding her book on her own shelf with an autograph from herself. It humanizes a face that's become a worldwide sensation, and makes her success even that much easier to support.

Malala also succeeds because it addresses the elephant in the room: the claim that the girl is merely a mouthpiece for the father, or that she was prodded to speak out. All one has to do is watch the ending - as if there wasn't enough evidence prior - as Malala herself addresses the question head on, in typical Malala style. The result is simple, and recognizes her intelligence as it serves as a beacon for her indomitable spirit.

And while the story is powerful and affecting, the way Malala is edited could be its downfall when Oscar noms are handed out. Its non-traditional approach might remind us of the girl and her father's unique approach to life itself, but here it jumps around too much for those uneducated about her story. Malala is seen all over the world one moment, then in school in another, then on the operating table after that. It almost feels as if she did her charitable work first, then was shot sometime afterwards. Sure, it easily defines this extraordinary young woman's turbulent life, but I think it tries too hard to sell itself when the subject matter is already so compelling.

Sometimes a subject is so powerful, it shines on its own. If there's anything to criticize about He Named Me Malala is that its glitzy, emotional heartbeats are timed more than they needed to be. Her story is one for all people everywhere, but it didn't need a freshening up to remain relevant. The good news is that we should have plenty of time to debate its merits, as an Oscar nom for documentary should be a no-brainer.

He Named Me Malala is rated PG-13 for thematic elements involving disturbing images and threats and has a runtime of 87 minutes.

Movie Review: 'Freeheld'

Poor casting and a moot topic make Freeheld nothing more than Oscar bait.

Review by Matt Cummings

If the Tom Hanks/Denzel Washington winner Philadelphia touched a nerve for its exposure about AIDS in 1993, the Julianne Moore/Ellen Page Freeheld wants to pull our heartstrings about gay rights. Sadly, its poor casting, dull direction, and a recent Supreme Court decision take the wind out of what should have been an admirable project.

It's not that the plot isn't worth investigating: a highly-decorated New Jersey police officer (Moore) seeks to grant her pension to her domestic partner (Page), but the Ocean County board refuses to do so, based on her sexual orientation. Unfortunately, Director Peter Sollett and Writer Ron Nyswaner surround their actors with primetime network drama and on-the-nose soapbox statements that suck the life out of any real emotion behind the topic. When Laurel and Stacie first hook up, things feel rehearsed rather than spontaneous; as their relationship supposedly deepens, none of it feels genuine. We're meant to believe these two fall madly in love, but the build up is dull and frankly struggles to maintain attention. Their 'marriage' feels empty, not because the 2004 law only made them domestic partners, but because Sollett's direction is so by the book.

Things somewhat improve when Laurel learns about her terminal lung cancer, but only from the perspective that the couple now have something to focus on. When the board (called Freeholders in New Jersey) refuses to allow Laurel to transfer her pension, she tries to appeal, but by that time the cancer is keeping Stacie and her support system are stretched to the limit. And here lies the worst decision of the film: suddenly the gay rights advocate Steve Goldstein (Steve Carell) and his Garden State Equality group turn up to put the fire to the freeholders' feet. Carrell's shtick is usually perfect in the right environment, but here it's so over the top that the mood whipsaws between morbid and comedic. I know that wasn't what intended, but that's the end result.

Moreover, Nyswaner's script adds more drama into the mix than actually existed in real life. And while that cheapens the experience, that's not Freeheld's only sin.. To put it bluntly, a story of this intensity no longer holds the weight it once did, due to the recent Supreme Court ruling over gay marriage. Sure, it's meant to be told based on its backwards viewpoints, but the effect is cold oatmeal: lifeless, lacking in definition. It's really 10 years too late, and probably would have played well back then. But it's this sort of Hollywood-ification that ruins any positive effort Freeheld makes in telling its story.

Moore is of course very good at living Laurel's physical deterioration, providing some of the best moments in the film. But Page - who came out in 2014 - is clearly out of her league, relegated to flickering her eyes (as she always does) when controversy arrives. It's her 'move' and it happens so early and so often that it soon loses its effect. Michael Shannon - who play's Laurel's partner - is another matter entirely. He arrives with a powerful but quiet presence as the person caught in the middle of this new paradigm, risking his job by eventually standing with his former partner. Sadly, Sollett just lets Carell interpret Goldstein in any way he wanted, and the effect makes him an anachronism, a flamboyant gay who displays remarkably little depth. Not even Composer Hans Zimmer can breathe life into this, with the final result feeling like a Lifetime film.

Suffering from a debilitating script, poor casting, and a subject that feels like last 24-hour news cycle, Freeheld is nothing but Oscar bait, designed to pull on emotions that are decidedly less controversial than they were just a few short months ago.

Freeheld is rated PG-13 for some thematic elements, language and sexuality and has a runtime of 103 minutes.

NEW CLIPS FROM #BRIDGEOFSPIES

In the 1950s during the early stages of the Cold War, tensions are rife between the U.S. and USSR, so when the FBI arrests Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), a Soviet agent living in New York, the fear and paranoia only escalate. Charged with sending coded messages back to Russia, Abel is questioned by the FBI but refuses to cooperate, declining their offer to turn on his country, and is detained in federal prison pending trial.

THE RULE BOOK


See all the clips after the Jump...

The government, in need of an independent attorney to take on Abel’s defense, approaches James Donovan (Tom Hanks), an insurance lawyer from Brooklyn. But Donovan, a former prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials and highly regarded within the legal community for his profound skills as a negotiator, has little experience with allegations of this magnitude and isn’t eager to get involved. Advocating such a deeply unpopular defense would make him a public figure and could subject his family to scrutiny, disdain and even, potentially, danger.

#TatianaMaslany In Talks To Join Jake Gyllenhaal In Stronger

According to VarietyOrphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany is in early talks to co-star with Jake Gyllenhaal in Lionsgate’s Boston Marathon bombing drama “Stronger.”

Pic tells the true story of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the attack.

David Gordon Green recently signed on to direct the pic. John Pollono has adapted the script for “Stronger,” which marks his full-length feature debut. Pollono wrote and co-starred in the Off Broadway play “Small Engine Repairs.” “Stronger” has been set up with Mandeville Films principals Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman along with Scott Silver, while Peter McGuigan and Anthony Mattero will exec produce.

“Stronger” is based on the book by Bauman and Bret Witter. It details the aftermath of the 2013 attack at the marathon finish line, where Bauman had been cheering for his girlfriend, who will be played by Maslany.

The book, published last year, also describes Bauman’s attempts to walk again and face his new circumstances with grace, transforming from an aimless deli counter worker to a man driven with ambition and full of love. “I saw the bomber,” Bauman wrote. “He took my legs, but he didn’t break me. He only made me stronger.”

Several actresses including Kate Mara and Elizabeth Olsen were being eyed by the studio before execs decided to go with Maslany who has been on a slew of shortlists all over town for other projects. She just missed on the female lead in “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” (Rebecca Ferguson eventually landed the role) and had also recently met for a role in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars” film.

Movie Review: 99 Homes

The bubble bursts on ham-handed housing drama.

Review by Brandon Wolfe

The housing crisis that dovetailed with the 2008 financial meltdown was a disaster that hampered and destroyed many, many lives, and as is often the case with major, world-shaking disasters, it now has its very own disaster movie. And while the fallout from these economic calamities has cropped up in several movies already (Up in the Air being one of the earliest instances), 99 Homes is the first to specifically tackle the subprime mortgage crisis head-on. The film unsparingly examines the desperation, devastation and ruthless opportunism that ran rampant in the wake of that catastrophe, as financially crippled people were ejected from their homes while real-estate wheelers-and-dealers unscrupulously cleaned up. 99 Homes thrusts the audience right into the thick of this very ugly situation, taking great pains to mine the material for everything it’s worth. This is a movie with Something To Say, and it intends to say that thing as forcefully and unambiguously as it possibly can.

Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield with a drawl that peters out after about a half-hour) is an Orlando-based construction grunt and single father fighting a losing battle to save his childhood home from foreclosure. Work is rapidly drying up and Nash can no longer pay his bills, and the extra income brought in by his hairdresser mother (Laura Dern), also his roommate, isn’t nearly enough to make ends meet. While attempting to think up some sort of Hail Mary play to save his home, he receives an unceremonious visit from Richard Carver (Michael Shannon, putting his knack for outsized villainy to good use), a soul-deprived real-estate slickster, brandishing an eviction notice, a pair of police officers and a callous mandate that Nash and his family vacate the premises within two minutes. Defeated, Nash packs up however much of his family’s belongings that will fit into the back of his pickup truck and takes his mother and son to live in a seedy motel while he struggles to find someone, anyone, willing to pay him for his fix-it skills.


Nash quickly learns that his tools were stolen by some of Carver’s goons during the eviction, and arrives at the man’s workplace to reclaim them. After a scuffle, Carver gets word that a home he’s trying to salvage has a nasty sewage problem and tells Nash that if he helps out, there might be a couple of bucks in it for him. Nash winds up being the only worker willing to wade into the putrid ocean of human waste to get the job done, impressing Carver enough for him to make Nash his primary construction monkey. Their working relationship goes swimmingly enough that Nash soon advances into something of an apprentice of Carver’s, with the master tasking his charge with such crooked errands as stealing air conditioners from foreclosed homes so that Carver can make even more money for their replacement and pushing a shady “Cash For Keys” program on floundering homeowners. Nash does so well that he ultimately graduates to an eviction-serving hitman himself, pocketing substantial checks for the soul-killing job of tossing poor schleps out on the street. It’s a tough gig, but the money’s good.

Unsavory realty practices don’t immediately seem like much in the way of cinematic fodder, but 99 Homes does a fair job of fashioning a thriller out of this subject matter. The ceaseless, nerve-jangling score helps quite a bit in this area, cultivating an uneasy tenseness from the proceedings. The film also places a fair amount of pressure on the audience’s basic human empathy. When Nash has to politely but sternly move people out of their homes and onto the sidewalk, it’s difficult to watch. In the most heartbreaking instance, he forces a confused elderly man off of his premises and quickly learns that the man has no family or anyplace else to go. The film knows precisely where to hit you to achieve the maximum emotional impact.


But that calculated method of manipulation is also emblematic of where 99 Homes falters. This is a film that has no use at all for subtlety. It plays its emotional hand and makes its moral points broadly and at top volume. Carver isn’t merely a shifty businessman, he’s the devil himself. Shannon had more nuance to play with as General Zod in Man of Steel. Nash’s seduction into the dark side and subsequent crisis of conscience are also played without much complication or dimension. Early on in his partnership, Nash encounters another struggling father who’s on an eviction collision course with Carver and develops a particular sympathetic bond with the man, so it’s no big surprise when all of Carver’s dealings wind up hinging on the undoing of this same man’s efforts to save his home. It’s even less of a surprise when the outcome of that undoing transpires in the most dramatic and apocalyptic means possible. 99 Homes isn’t interested in doing or saying anything that isn’t italicized, bold-faced and underlined.

In spite of the totality of his character’s evilness, Shannon is the best thing about the film. He makes Carver, with his blithe lack of humanity and his constant e-cig, into an enjoyable heel, a source of entertainment and a respite from all the sermonizing and calibrated displays of misery. Garfield is less impressive, as he’s stuck with a character as one-note as Shannon’s (the decent guy struggling to do the right thing), but without the traits to make Nash seem like anything more than a conflicted drip. 99 Homes also struggles with several lapses in logic, such as the fact that the family’s presence at the motel becomes a source of danger, yet Nash, even after collecting some large paydays, never thinks to move his family to a safer temporary location while he works on getting their house back. Moreover, Nash’s decision to keep his alliance with Carver hidden from his mother and son only raises questions, like don’t they wonder why his work attire has changed from scruffy construction-site clothing to crisp business shirts and slacks? The secret only exists so Dern and the kid can have purely outraged reactions to the news when Nash springs a mansion on them, rather than more honest and complicated ones.

99 Homes has its heart in the right place. It wants to shine a spotlight on a horrible era in our recent history and illustrate how decent people suffered while bad men rode their misfortunes all the way to the bank. This is a noble pursuit, but it’s a shame that the film treats such a thorny issue in the manner of an Afterschool Special, where everything is surface-level and easily digestible. 99 Homes has problems, and a lack of subtlety is one.

But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability – both on and off the campaign trail – Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, “Our Brand is Crisis” reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For OUR BRAND IS CRISIS In Las Vegas

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For OUR BRAND IS CRISIS on October 26th at 7:00 PM in Las Vegas.

A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), now coaching the opposition.

But as Candy zeroes in on every vulnerability – both on and off the campaign trail – Jane is plunged into a personal crisis as intense as the one her team exploits nationally to boost their numbers. Dramatic, rapid-fire and laced with satire, “Our Brand is Crisis” reveals the cynical machinations and private battles of world-class political consultants for whom nothing is sacred and winning is all that matters.

The drama also stars Anthony Mackie (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), Joaquim de Almeida (“Fast Five”), Ann Dowd (“Side Effects,” HBO’s “The Leftovers”), Scoot McNairy (“Gone Girl,” “Argo”) and Zoe Kazan (“Ruby Sparks”).
