Gambit Removed From the 2016 Roster

Gambit has had a rough start from the get go. From fumbling around with directors to unhappy actors prior to any sort of production, Fox’s would be golden-child was looking like it may be more of a dud than anything else. However, while we have a bit more of a wait now for the Channing Tatum vehicle than before, it seems to be a blessing for the production of this film.

Gambit was originally slated to be released in the fall of this year, but has now been officially taken off the 2016 roster and is, we assume, being put on the 2017 one. Thankfully, with the success of Deadpool, Fox was able to give Gambit a bit of breathing room as production hasn’t even started for the film.

Possibility of R-rated X-Force Movie

While it was obvious to both fans, and Ryan Reynolds himself that Deadpool needed to be R-rated. It was a risk that paid off for the studio. Making an R-rated superhero movie is difficult because it eliminates a large portion of the expected audience. Of course, there will be that annoying mom who takes her 8-year-old to see  Deadpool and then complain online about how it was too sexual or violent or whatever, but that’s a rant for later.

Aside from the annoying mother, Deadpool was a huge success in its opening weekend, which is great and paves the way for more rated R superhero movies. Of course the R-rating should be used delicately. Not all superhero movies need to be rated R, but now that we’ve had one, it’s definitely worth considering. Simon Kinberg, the producer of Deadpool explains that pretty well when he spoke with Collider;

Deadpool REVIEW: What’s Not to Love?

Alright guys, I don’t know if you could tell how excited I was about Deadpool, but it was a lot. Normally, I like to keep my expectations at a neutral 5 just in case a movie doesn’t cut it. At least then I don’t leave the theater too incredibly bummed out. However for Deadpool, I had a much harder time maintaining my expectation composure, and my neutrality went through the window back when the test footage leaked.  I set myself up for disappointment. There was no way the movie was going to be everything I wanted it to be…

EXCEPT IT WAS. – Spoilers ahead.. maybe? Kinda.

Trish (Patsy) Walker Might Put on the Spandex In Season 2 Of Jessica Jones

Since Jessica Jones came out on Netflix not too long ago, it has been a major hit and already received the green light for season 2. No big surprises there. One of the main successes in the series was Trish Walker’s relationship with Jessica, and how that contributed to the sort of hero Jessica is, and ultimately was a profound factor in defeating the Purple Man. So it is again, no surprise that fans want more of Trish and are eagerly waiting her arrival as Hellcat.

Happy Chinese New Year From Us, But More Importantly From Daredevil

Chinese New Year is awesome, for me at least, being Chinese and all. There’s great food, family, money, drinking, dancing… you get the point. But the people at Netflix wanted everyone to be able to enjoy Chinese New Year this year with some promos for the upcoming second season of Daredevil.

James Gunn Gives Us a Look at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

What a time it is to be a nerd right now. Movies and new comic books are popping up left and right, and it’s all getting really hard to keep track of. With the new year came a flood of marketing and campaigning for movies that are set to release in 2016; Deadpool, Suicide Squad, BVS Dawn of Justiceetc. What I’m saying is, I don’t blame you if some of the 2017 features aren’t at the forefront of your mind right now. Director James Gunn however, would like to change that. That’s why when he went on social media and gave us some behind the scenes snapshots of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.

Win the Game Of Thrones Experience of a Lifetime

Game of Thrones has partnered up with Omaze and (RED) to help in the war against AIDS. A little while ago I wrote about Rick and Morty creators doing the same thing, and it seems the support is spreading to higher and probably more popular shows.

THIS IS AWESOME.

Not only is this a great way to help donate to a great organization, but you could win some really awesome stuff like action figures and signed posters. Check out all the possible prizes on the Omaze website. However, the prize that really takes the cake is of course the Game of Thrones Experience which will let you visit the set in Ireland… AND SIT ON THE IRON THRONE.

Grant Gustin Says Stop Pitting the Flash Against the Flash

With the upcoming DC movies slated this year, we have been promised standalone feature films from each of the Justice League characters. There have also been some speculations and rumors that we will get a brief viewing of more than the title characters in the Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. The Flash has been rumored to be one of those characters.

The cinematic Flash as Barry Allen will be portrayed by Ezra Miller, as opposed to the CW’s extremely popular Flash who is portrayed by Grant Gustin. Some backlash has ensued with the casting of the cinematic Barry Allen, as we have all grown to love and adore Gustin’s take on the character. However, Gustin has taken to twitter to clear the air and try to make the situation as civil as possible by showing his support for Ezra Miller.

Thor: Ragnarok Rumors and a Possible Villain Revealed?

Of all the upcoming Marvel films Thor: Ragnarok seems to be the hardest to find a lead on. Up until now most of the news for the next Thor film has been rumors. The movie doesnt come out for another year and a half so I suppose that’s fair.

However, the new rumor (which is most likely true, and they are just waiting to sign the papers) is that Cate Blanchett will be cast as the main villain – Hela, Goddess of Death.
