'Fantastic Four': Matthew Vaughn to produce...

Fantastic Four will be produced by Matthew Vaughn.

The X-Men: First Class director has accepted a role on the 20th Century Fox Marvel Comics reboot, according to Deadline.

Vaughn was previously attached to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past for the studio before stepping aside for Bryan Singer last year.

Chronicle director Josh Trank is attached to helm the adaptation of Marvel's oldest superhero property.

2005's Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer were critically panned upon release.

The Fantastic Four reboot is scheduled for release on March 6, 2015.


Green Lantern: 'No word on sequel ', says Mark Strong...

Mark Strong has revealed that he has heard no word about a Green Lantern movie sequel.

The actor, who played Sinestro in the critical and commercial flop, has discussed his generally well-received role.

"I really like Green Lantern," he told MTV News. "I don't have a problem with it at all. But it just didn't seem to do anything at the box office or it didn't do what they were hoping it would do at the box office. I think that more than anything, economics, dictates whether or not they make another one.

"I think it's a real shame. I loved making Green Lantern and I loved playing Sinestro and I was really excited about the direction that he was going to take in the second one."

The conclusion of the Ryan Reynolds-starring Warner Bros film set the franchise up for a sequel featuring the founding of the fear-powered Sinestro Corps.


Stan Lee's 'Annihilator' bound for cinema...

Stan Lee's Annihilator has been optioned for cinema by Magic Storm Entertainment.

Bourne Legacy writer Dan Gilroy will pen a screenplay based on the character that Lee created for the Chinese market, The Wrap reports.

Annihilator's story is reminiscent of Captain America's, telling of a young Chinese expatriate named Ming who survives a Us military super-soldier programme thanks to his martial arts training.

TV producer Barry Josephson will oversee the project's development and National Film Capital will provide financial backing.

Lee previously teamed up with Liquid Comics to created a superhero property for the Indian market called Chakra - The Invincible.

Annihilator is yet to appoint a cast and director.


'Iron Man 3': Ben Kingsley's Mandarin featured in new poster...

Iron Man 3 has released a new poster featuring Sir Ben Kingsley.

The poster, revealed by Empire, depicts the actor's take on classic comic book villain the Mandarin.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously said that Kingsley's antagonist "blurs ethnicity", as the character is a mix of various warrior motifs from across the world.

"It's less about his specific ethnicity than the symbolism of various cultures and iconography that he perverts for his own end," he explained in a previous interview.

Mandarin is considered one of Tony Stark's greatest foes in the Marvel Comics Universe, but is yet to feature on-screen.

Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau and Wang Xueqi will also appear in the Shane Black-directed movie.

Iron Man 3 will arrive in UK cinemas on April 26, 2013, following in the Us on May 3.


'X-Men: Days of Future Past': Peter Dinklage not CG villain...


Peter Dinklage will not play a CG villain in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Bryan Singer has praised the Game of Thrones actor, saying that he was his first choice for the role.

"He's not going to be a CGI character," the director told IGN. "He'll be himself.

"Not that he'll be playing Peter Dinklage, he'll be playing this character. It's not a shy character. He's just such a phenomenal actor - I'm a huge fan of Peter's and Game of Thrones.

"He was my first choice and I was really happy [about the casting]. It's so funny to talk to him because he does that impeccable accent [on Game of Thrones] and then you talk to him and he's this guy from New Jersey."

Singer previously hinted that the 20th Century Fox film would feature a fully CGI character, leading to speculation that Dinklage would take on the role.

The actor has also been rumoured to play Sentinel creator Bolivar Trask.


'X-Men: Days of Future Past': Bryan Singer shares mansion image...

Bryan Singer has shared a new image from X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Following Singer's unveiling of the first image from the film earlier this week, the second picture shows an underground corridor inside Professor Xavier's mansion, which will lead to the room in which mutant-detecting device Cerebro is stored.

Singer shared the image via Twitter, and accompanied it with a message implying that there will be a panel for X-Men: Days of Future Past at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

Based on Chris Claremont's comic arc of the same name, Days of Future Past features a dual storyline which moves between the present day - in which the X-Men fight against Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) - and a dystopian future timeline caused by their failure to prevent the assassination of a senator.


'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Marc Webb shares cryptic new image...

Marc Webb has shared a new image from The Amazing Spider-Man.

The returning director last week offered a glimpse of Spider-Man's new costume for the sequel, but was more cryptic with his latest image, which shows a collage of 32nd Us President Franklin D Roosevelt.

Alongside the image, Webb wrote only a mysterious hashtag: "#thepassage."

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will reprise their lead roles in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is penned by Star Trek Into Darkness writing team Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, alongside former Fringe and Lost writer Jeff Pinkner.

New cast additions include Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborne, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Jamie Foxx as Electro and Paul Giamatti as The Rhino.

Hugh Jackman is haunted by his past in new 'The Wolverine' picture...

A new image from The Wolverine has been released.

Hugh Jackman returns as Logan/Wolverine in James Mangold's upcoming film, which will find the character isolated and "pissed off".

The image, released by the film's Facebook page, shows Logan standing against a Japanese backdrop and was accompanied by the caption: "The past is always behind you, but the memories still remain."

The first trailer for The Wolverine is due to arrive in late March, reportedly before screenings of G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee round out the film's supporting cast, while Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy actress Svetlana Khodchenkova is rumoured to be playing the role of Viper.

Jackman will also appear in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is set ten years after the events of X-Men: First Class.


Batman documentary 'Legends of the Knight' trailer released - watch...

A trailer for upcoming Batman documentary Legends of the Knight has been released.

The film, which explores the inspirational impact of Batman and the power of heroic storytelling, has been made by collecting tales from fans around the world whose lives have been significantly impacted by the Dark Knight.

The not-for-profit movie is being produced and directed by lifelong Batman fan Brett Culp, who introduces the clip by saying the goal is "to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, to engage with the world and to make a difference".

Culp and his team have filmed 48 interviews in 12 cities for the movie.

Continuing, Culp also asks for help from fellow Batman fans to finish the film, which is due for release in summer 2013.


Dwayne Johnson 'Hercules' movie casts 'Headhunters' Aksel Hennie...

Hercules has cast Headhunters star Aksel Hennie.

The actor will play a mad warrior named Tydeus in Brett Ratner's action adventure, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson in the title role. The weary warrior has become a mercenary in order to occupy himself after completing his legendary tasks.

He and his six companions begin to suspect the motives of their vicious employer Cotys, the King of Thrace.

The take on the mythical hero ejects the magical and divine elements of the legend, leaving Hercules as a mighty warrior but not the son of Zeus.

The MGM and Paramount Pictures movie is based on Radical Publishing's two Hercules series The Thracian Wars and The Knives of Kush.

Hennie also starred in Max Manus and will make his English-language debut in the recently wrapped The Last Knights, which he will appear in alongside Morgan Freeman and Clive Owen.
