Director Matt Reeves Returns To The Batman!

header-transparent_space

Well, here we are again folks it seems. In more crazy Batman news this month, it’s being reported that Mr. Matt Reeves- who at one point was the director that Warner Bros. Studio was looking at most prominently too take over after Ben Affleck stepped down from the project, has now returned and officially signed on after stepping away from the project over a week ago himself. So hopefully you got all that, cause it was exhausting to write . .

Even though this head spin of a story makes many people quite dizzy, this is actually somewhat common place in crazy ole Hollywood. Directors and teams leaves projects, others come in only too have there script or direction not work and then leave themselves.

This is certainly nothing new at all to Warner Studio’s, as they have endured many a false start or a falling out, when it came to their Batman and Superman franchises over the years, including very recently. Now adding to those Flash, Wonder Woman and Aqua-Man all having a lot of trouble in there respective productions and multiple directors . . .

Did Hugh Jackman Tease Character’s Classic Yellow Suit in the Upcoming Film?

transparent_space
Well it seems that big-time actor Hugh Jackman took to twitter recently to shake things up & give fans a little something to talk about in the weeks ahead until his final film outing as everyone’s favorite cigar chomping, claw wielding mutant in Logan, due out this March . .

Wolverine first appeared in Bryan Singer’s X-Men back in 2000, to which the team mostly suited up in black leather get-ups. That has largely been the case in subsequent movies too follow. But in a deleted scene from “The Wolverine” the yellow costume was seen in a box that was gifted to Logan as he departed Japan. So could Logan finally be where the suit shows up?

In the second trailer for Logan, we saw the young mutant X-23, played by Dafne Keen, holding an X-Men comic book. Outside of that being self-referential, it did provide some context that would make the yellow costume showing up in the movie less jarring and seemingly out of place. Since Logan is set in a not-too-distant future where most mutants have disappeared and the landscape is very bleak, a bright yellow superhero costume might not be appropriate.

So finally, here’s what the actor posted on his official Twitter page, featuring something that all X-Men fans can get behind. Given the very subtle way some things are teased these days, it seems possible that this could be a sign that the suit may make an appearance in Logan. If it really is the last time we see his version of Wolverine onscreen, that would be a fun thing to see and would serve as a great bit of fan service . . .

Upcoming X-Men Sequel To Focus On Quicksilver And Magneto!

Well it certainly seems that Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse is going to be jam-packed with Mutants old and new, but one particular fan favorite is going to get some special attention. Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in last year’s sequel, revealed some of the story will focus on the relationship between the super-speedster and his biological dad, which was only ever hinted at that Magneto is indeed Quicksilver’s father. When the two meet up again in next summer’s blockbuster sequel, their path’s will finally connect. Speaking with Details magazine, Peters had this to say about his part in the next upcoming film . .

“The story is that my character is searching for his father and really wants to find him. It starts from there and then he jumps on the X-Men train and gets sucked up in this whole, crazy Apocalypse madness: He joins in and tries to stop him from destroying the world basically.”

The mutant-speedster character, which is shared by both 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios cinematically, first made his debut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When he learned of Magneto’s powers, he mentions that his mother “used to know” a man who could manipulate metal. It has been confirmed that in this corner of the Marvel Universe owned by Fox Studios, that Magneto is still Quicksilver’s father, despite Marvel Comic’s recent changing of the characters entire origins . . .

While doing press for his latest, upcoming film Sicario, director Denis Villeneuve very recently revealed that principal photography on the Blade Runner sequel will begin next summer, although he wouldn’t divulge any specific plot details quite yet. During an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, the filmmaker revealed that his follow-up will answer the question fans have had for decades: is Rick Deckard ( Harrison Ford ) in fact a “Replicant”? Here’s what he had to say on the subject . .

“Now that I am on the other side of the fence I cannot answer that. The thing I must say is that I love a good mystery. I love shadows. I love doubts. I would just want to say to the fans that we will take care of that mystery. I will take care of it.”

The director recently revealed that he was incredibly hesitant to take on this project, which was written by original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. He also said that this sci-fi sequel will be “autonomous” to the original, while still maintaining some connection to the sci-fi classic.

While principal photography will begin next summer, the exact locations have not been determined yet. The project still doesn’t have a release date set at this time, but will most likely hit theaters in 2017, which would coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original. It isn’t exactly known what time period this movie will be set in, but now that a production schedule is in place, hopefully we’ll start learning more details about the anticipated project . . .

Warner Studio’s Untitled Blade Runner Project comes to theaters across the country in 2017.

Muppets-transparent_space

Last month, it was widely reported that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had called it quits. They made the break public, releasing a statement to the press just as their new show “The Muppets” is set to debut this fall. The new series, which is described as a fresh take on The Office, will show the lives of these various Muppet animals and creatures. And as expected, we’ll be getting a bird’s-eye view into the dating woes and romantic relationships of everyone’s favorite Pig and Frog . .

ABC has leaked early photos of Kermy’s new fling. Her name is Denise. And to be honest, she’s a real pig. Kermit and Miss Piggy have been together for over four decades. Though their split was amicable, it didn’t take long for the green man to start hitting the field. Kermy is rumored to be dating an ABC employee he met on the set of his new series. She is apparently the head of marketing, making her a co-worker of sorts. Check out the latest press release from Kermit to his fans.

While Kermit getting a new girlfriend might not have been such a big deal, it certainly has many fans a little bothered here and there. With his ex of forty years always just a few yards away from him, it’s bound to blow-up in his face at some future point in the series. With everything being documented, you can guarantee that fans will get to see all of the most awkward moments, warts and all . .
