The latest roundup of the hottest news to come out over the last couple of Days!
The Avengers Age of Ultron will be coming to us in 2015 which means 2015 will be one awesome year for movie, and comic book fans alike.
Joss Whedon recently confirmed that Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch would be in the $1.5Billion dollar sequel, but with another chick added to the mix what would happen to the red haired assassin Black Widow?
Whedon recently spoke with Nerd HQ (via MTV) and revealed that Scarlett Johansson would have a lot to play with this time around:
“Natasha is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who don’t have their own franchises. Although she in Cap 2, [and] she’s great. She was the most fun for me because she’s not a hero, you know, and it’s something that I read—and I feel bad that I can’t remember who wrote the book—but it’s in one of the books explaining, ‘These guys are heroes, you are a spy. It’s a different thing—it’s a different skill set—and you don’t have their moral high ground or any of that good stuff.’ And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff I’ve got going on with her in the second one is killer.”
Whedon also revealed that Jeremy Renner would be getting a lot more screen time as Hawkeye, as this time Whedon looks to have a lot more fun scripting the character.
In a different interview, this time with Total Film, Whedon spoke a little about ULTRON:
“I was pitching Ultron before I took the job on the first movie. I was like, ‘I don’t know if I want to do this, but for the second one, you should totally do Ultron.’ Because he’s been a thorn in their side as much as any other character over the years and particularly back in my history.
He was great. He’s somebody who can juice things up and he’s a real problem for the Avengers. That’s not always easy to find. It’s not like the Vulture is really going to give them a hard time for 20 minutes.”
So we all know that Quicksilver will be in Avengers 2,what we also know is that Aaron Johnson is being considered for the role, speaking with Collider, the Kick-Ass star confirmed that he'd been approached for the role and found it to be an "interesting" proposition.
"I feel really flattered and honoured that they came to me for that role," he said. "I think he’s an interesting character and we’re just going to keep going into that. I sat down with Joss, I think he’s awesome, I sat down with the guys at Marvel and they’re also great; I think it’d be interesting."
So there you have it! You got to wait a little while longer for more on Marvel!
In Dumbest news for the week, it looks like there will be a another Butterfly Effect film, and not its not a sequel, it’s a remake… I wish I were joking.
This is where it really gets depressing, Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber who wrote the original script, Variety is reporting that Bress is on board to script the reboot. So yes the original writer is writing a new version of the same story he got to put on the big screen 10 years ago. Talk about a one trick pony!
There’s no director attached at this point, and hopefully there will never be.
BEVERLY HILLS COP 4
Recently the Beverly Hills Cop TV series pilot was rejected, meaning the show would never be developed to play on TV for a full season unless some other network decided to pick it up!
That unfortunately did not happen but what did happen is quite fortunate and really bizarre.
Deadline reports that Murphy’s performance “had people talking”, so naturally, Paramount is now developing a 4th Beverly Hills Cop TV series with Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) writing the script.
Guess it all worked out in the end!
So just before the start of San Diego Comic Con news broke that an X-Force film is in development, my heart jumped out of my chest with pure excitement!
Since then we haven’t gotten much news about anything concerning the film really. Until recently, when Jeff Wadlow, director of KICK ASS 2, shared some of his thoughts:
"What ‘X-Force’ is – the way I talk about ‘X-Force’ is… ‘X-Men’ is about mutants, and not all the mutants get into the mansion. So I’m curious to tell a story about the mutants who don’t make it into the mansion."
He was then asked about who his favorite characters are in X-Force,
"Look, I’m a huge Deadpool fan, who doesn’t love Wolverine – but obviously Cable is an iconic character we haven’t seen onscreen yet. I love Psylocke, Domino is an amazing character – it’s a long list of characters that have appeared in ‘X-Force’ – Colossus is in the current lineup… There’s a lot of really exciting characters that you can use in ‘X-Force’ that have been in other movies, that haven’t shown up, or maybe there’s ways to re-imagine them, even though they might’ve shown up in other films."
My Personal line up includes CABLE, DOMINO, PSYLOCK, FANTOMEX and of course DEADPOOL! So far it looks like I’m 4/5, Colossus would be pretty cool if his in the film though, hopefully Daniel Cudmore gets to do a whole lot more then he ever did in the Original Trilogy!
But that’s all for today! Make sure to check back here for more!
