Veering off of superhero movies for this last one, Kodi Smit-McPhee has an extra mouth to feed in Albert Hughes’s striking new adventure, Alpha. Opening on March 2, the film is set in the last Ice Age where an injured young boy and a wounded wolf abandoned by its pack become unlikely allies as they brave the elements and unrelenting dangers of the wilderness to find their way home. I was compelled by the trailer when I first saw it and best of all, I love stories about animals and humans co-existing together. This is gonna be fun.
Taika Watiti’s Thor: Ragnarok is still a few weeks out from its release and Marvel is getting its feet dug in amply with its current campaign for Ryan Coogler’s offering, Black Panther. The second official trailer has arrived well and steady for a glimpse into the looming insurrection that awaits our protagonist and his forged alliances, and of course a meaty serving of some feisty cat spectacle.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Actor Chadwick Boseman is currently reigning at the box office having just debuted as Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War and the forthcoming solo film for which he’s been slated is due to start filming early next year. As such, casting is currently underway and with acclaimed actress Lupita Nyong’o now gearing up for a possible role as the title character’s love interest as of Thursday.
It’s official, Marvelites: Ryan Coogler will step up to direct Marvel’s “Black Panther,” in theaters February 16, 2018!
Glad I took my time in getting this Hit List together with all the videos and pics to display. Its been a busy week for me so I hope this will suffice. I should, right?
The on-going war for bragging rights continues as Marvel and DC continue to duke it out, toe-to-toe, neck and neck for ultimate live-action comic book TV and film glory. DC is currently in the running following its most recent productions of productions for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, as well as the developing TV universe between current shows like Gotham, Arrow and The Flash, and upcoming teleivison properties like Titans, Supergirl and Krypton.
Of course, Marvel wasn’t going to let all that slide, especially after having just announced what it has in store for their cinematic universe at least twice in the past month. So on Tuesday, they held an epic event to shut down all epic events (at least for now), and it’s safe to say thay the fans are happy (seriously, I think one of them shit their pants – their words, true story). On that note, here it is, all nice and thick and whatnot:
May 6, 2016 was the official release date already pre-determined for the newly announced and officially-titled Captain America: Civil War, which will see title actor Chris Evans and fellow Avenger Robert Downey Jr. in front of the camera with directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo helming. Afterward, Scott Derrickson‘s Doctor Strange was tacked for November 4, 2016 with Benedict Cumberbatch in talks to star as of Monday.
The 2017 slate would also be kicked off with the advanced May 5 announcement for director James Gunn‘s ensemble rock-and-roll space hero thriller, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 followed by actor Chris Hemsworth‘s return in the title role of the July 28 installment of Thor: Ragnarok, with scribes Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost writing the script. Actor Chadwick Boseman‘s presence at the event also ended specualtion for his confirmation in the November 3 release of Black Panther, much to the delight of fans after the appearance of the character Ulysses Klaw in last week’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron teaser.
Blasting off the 2018 slate, Marvel then followed through with an announcement for the July 6 date for Captain Marvel, in parallel to DC’s upcoming Shazam film for which actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was confirmed to play the film’s anti-heroic villain, Black Adam last month. Moving on with the big announcements of the day were updates for the two-part third installment to the Avengers saga with Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 and 2 set May 4 and then May 3, 2019, respectively, with the other Vin Diesel-hopeful starrer, The Inhumans slated for a November 2, 2018 date in between; it has been reported that Marvel took an interest in bringing the Russo brothers aboard to round off the 3.4 part Avengers finale, so details on this are still pending.
New banners are now online as well to announce the releases. As usual, these films will set the course for plenty of changes to come, turning the comic book genre into a pure, rich platform for bringing spectacular saga-storytelling to the big screen as a game changer in many ways. Its what some fans have wanted over years, and the number has increased tremendously. Marvel is heeding the call, so…you’re welcome, and more to come. In the meantime, check out the banners below, and stay tuned for more footage to go viral for the May 1, 2015 release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, directed by Joss Whedon, and director Peyton Reed‘s July 17, 2015 release of Ant-Man!
⚫Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy is poised for an animated series while the upcoming August 1, 2014 release of said film will possibly see the return of Thunderbolts helmer-hopeful and Avengers 3 rumor subject, director James Gunn back in the chair for the July 18, 2017 sequel should the first film be a success. The sequel hype was also headlined with the company of Josh Brolin attached as intergalactic supervillain, Thanos.
A new report by Screencrush was forwarded from Latino Review today indicating that the development of a live-action Marvel comicbook superhero film, Black Panther is back in the spotlight. The reports suggest that while no talks have taken place, the primary actor at the top of Marvel’s list of candidates is actor Chadwick Boseman, whose televison and film credits include CSI: NY, Lie To Me, The Kill Hole and the recently released Jackie Robinson biopic, 42.
