STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII Director Rian Johnson Teases Overall Direction of the Film Last month we got the utterly fantastic news that Rian Johnson will be writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, (in addition to crafting a treatment for Star Wars: Episode IX).  Johnson’s Looper is such an incredibly strong film that I have to imagine there will be a certain amount of quality gained from this if he’s allowed a reasonable amount of control over the project.  While details are still thin on Episode VIII (let’s face it, they’re still thin on Episode VII so I wouldn’t expect this to get better anytime soon) this is a sign that Lucasfilm and Disney are at least somewhat conce

'Star Wars: Episode 7′ Set Photos: Luke Skywalker Heads to Skellig Island Though Comic-Con 2014 offered nothing of J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' the first installment of the brand-new trilogy continues filming to meet its December 2015 release date. From the deserts of Abu Dhabi to London's Pinewood Studios, production now sets up shop on Ireland's remote Skellig Michael Island to film scenes involving Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker, and we have the first photos of the locale!

Paul Rudd & Peyton Reed Address Edgar Wright’s Exit; Watch Over 20 Minutes Of ‘Ant-Man Interviews The elephant in the room was not largely addressed during Marvel’s Comic-Con “Ant-Man” panel. Onstage, there was little talk of the older iteration of “Ant-Man” that was going to be directed by a filmmaker you might have heard of named Edgar Wright (though there was a guy loyally standing outside of the convention center all day with a sign that said “Edgar Wright was right”).

Comic-Con 2014: Marvel Reveals Hulkbuster Arm & Damaged Ultron We may be finished with Comic-Con 2014, and while the big Marvel panel was Saturday evening, that didn't stop the comic book studio from giving fans a couple more surprises. Earlier this week, several intriguing items from Marvel's cinematic universe hit the Marvel booth (like Loki's staff and Black Widow's slick new motorcycle), but today, the studio actually showed off a few pieces from The Avengers: Age of Ultron. One was the fist of Tony Stark's Hulkbuster armor used to keep the big guy in check when he gets a little out of control.

Zack Snyder Reveals First Look at Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman As expected, the superhero news is starting to fly (ha!) out of Comic-Con, and some of the earliest comes from Zack Snyder, who tweeted the first official image of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just as Warner Bros. was unveiling a brief teaser showing Batman (Ben Affleck) engaging in a long-distance staring contest with Superman (Henry Cavill). (Spoiler alert: Superman has heat vision, so staring contests may not be the best idea.) read more

Ant-Man Movie – Who Is Darren Cross? Just announced at Comic-Con, Corey Stoll will be the bad guy in the new Ant-Man movie. He will be playing Darren Cross. Now Cross is not a new character, he is actually vital to the origin of the Scott Lang version of Ant-Man and since that is who Paul Rudd is playing, it makes sense to have Cross as the villain.

Another Round Of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Cast Interviews; Thanos, Black Widow/Hulk, More Get More: Movie Trailers, Celebrity News Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

Scoot McNairy Talks Working With Zack Snyder On BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE "It’s been great; I’m still in the middle of it actually," Scott McNairy told Issue Magazine of his first blockbuster role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Reports surfaced back in June that the 12 Years a Slave actor was joining the Man of Steel follow-up in a mystery role that even major Hollywood insiders couldn't reveal given they were "sworn to secrecy." Of course, instead of discussing his character, McNairy went on to praise the film's director. "Zack Snyder is awesome. He was one of the director’s on my list.

'Justice League' Eyes a Screenwriter Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder must really love what they've seen in Chris Terrio's script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, because he's reportedly in talks to report for duty again with the studio's upcoming mega-superhero movie, Justice League. read more

Here's Marvel's Ant-Man Comic Con Poster San Diego Comic-Con has begun, and Marvel's first reveal is upon us with a Comic-Con poster for Ant-Man. Take a look: Ant-Man!So it seems clear we can expect some Ant-Man action at Marvel's Hall H panel at the show this Saturday. The image comes from EW and is "pre-production concept art specifically made for San Diego Comic-Con." Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are present and accounted for, but the big takeaway here? Ant-Man is riding on a flying ant! We're getting a big-budget Hollywood movie where a superhero rides on a flying ant! What more can you ask for? Continue reading…
