Comic-Con posters for Ant-Man, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hobbit and more

With San Diego Comic-Con well underway, there have been quite a few posters released for each film. I thought about this for quite a bit, and instead of having each poster get their own post, I figured I'd just put them all i...

Here are Marvel's release dates through May 2019

With Guardians of the Galaxy only two weeks away, the Marvel hype train never ceases to amaze me. I've talked about my distaste for Marvel's marketing strategy before (where we know when and what we're getting so there's no r...

See Guardians of the Galaxy early and free

Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my most anticipated Marvel movie in ever. It looks like it's finally shaking up the stale franchises for good. And if not, at least it's got a great cast at the center. So for some lucky fo...

Roberto Orci leaves Amazing Spider-Man 3

If The Amazing Spider-Man 2's quality left you wondering about the franchise's state of affairs, I'm sure this news may shake that up a bit more. Sony's had huge plans for the films with Venom, Sinister Six spin-offs, an...

Hellboy 3 definitely isn't happening

After years of endless trying and never giving up, Guillermo del Toro finally gave up on making Hellboy 3 a reality. On a recent Reddit AMA, del Toro admitted the film wasn't happening due to a lack of a studio backing: ...

First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable photo
First full trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 is just adorable
by Nick Valdez

When I posted the teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel's Big Hero 6 some time ago, I loved how cute the whole thing was. Yet, this first full trailer rings kind of hollow. As it completely relies on that cuteness, more cracks are starting to show. Sure Baymax (Scott Adsit as the squishy robot) will get a lot of chuckles out of me, but nothing else sticks out right now. 

But with this plot (a man in a kabuki mask is attacking their city with nanobots), and the reveal of the other heroes (played by Damon Wayans Jr., Jamie Chung, TJ Miller, and Genesis Rodriguez), I'm hoping there's still something hidden away. 

Big Hero 6 releases November 7th.

Here's a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer featuring Michael Rooker

I'm going to be upfront with you all. I have not seen this trailer for myself. In trying to keep as much mysticism toward the first original Marvel film in years as possible, I've only seen the first two trailers as later on...

First look at Henry Cavill as Superman in Superman vs. Batman

Here it is. I think someone might have been waiting for this. Stunningly he looks almost exactly the same as he did in Man of Steel. I know, your mind is blown. I suppose confirmation of no change is good if you liked how he looked already.  Can we get a cleaner look at Batman now?

WB once had to defend Tim Burton's Batman in this 1988 video

Before Warner Bros puts Superman and Batman in the same movie, we should remember how we got to this point. While Tim Burton's take on Batman was liked by most fans for reasons, Warner Bros had to prove to shareholders ...

Dear Warner Brothers: an open letter regarding your fledgling cinematic universe photo
Dear Warner Brothers: an open letter regarding your fledgling cinematic universe
by Sean Walsh

(Spoiler alert ahead.)

Dear Warner Brothers,

You don't know who I am, but that's okay. I'm just another avid comic fan who is excited about the prospect of a cinematic universe that could possibly counter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As a fan who straddles the line, reading equal shares of Marvel and DC, I couldn't be more excited at the prospect of a Shazam movie, or a Green Lantern/Flash team-up, or a badass Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot that would make Clash of the Titans look like an Asylum film.

That all being said, you have a wonderful opportunity on your hands and, as an enormous fan, I beg you: DO NOT BLOW IT. That opportunity, of course, is to merge your film universe with the surprisingly rich world of Arrow. Why? I'm glad you asked...

Marvel "entertaining the idea" of a new standalone Hulk film

Usually I don't like to write about every little Marvel news bit under the sun (because there's always tons), or every quote from every actor, but I love me some Hulk. With crazier Marvel heroes like Ant-Man and Doctor Strang...

New trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Ant-Man's new director confirmed, getting more rewrites photo
Ant-Man's new director confirmed, getting more rewrites
by Nick Valdez

After what seemed liked years of speculation after Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, Marvel has finally found a replacement director. It's someone none of us would have even guessed. Names like Adam McKay, Nicholas Stoller, Rawson Thurber, and Ruben Fleischer were thrown around, but the job has been given to Peyton Reed, whose credits include films such as Yes Man and Bring It On. What.

I'm sure most of you are confused (I am), and are already discounting Reed because he's not Edgar Wright, but I'm sure it'll be fine. Ant-Man still has a great cast, Bring It On is actually one of my favorite movies (because of the cute girls and biting teen satire), but what's most troubling is the Marvel blender. Adam McKay apparently rewrote the script enough (or made suggestions) that he's now listed as a screenwriter for it. That's just odd. I hope all of this production stuff fixes itself before it hits theaters July 2015. The first synopsis for the film is after the cut.

Flixist Community Discusses: X-Men: Days of Future Past photo
Flixist Community Discusses: X-Men: Days of Future Past
by Nick Valdez

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the seventh X-Men film. Let that sink in for a moment. From the time the X-Men series began we've had world politics change forever, several global warming scares, and three different incarnations of the Hulk. It's been a wild ride. Days of Future Past is like a time capsule of the 00s, a time where heroes wearing black leather is still cool, things don't need to make sense, and old men are fearsome villains. 

But was it all worth it? Although I thought it was good in my review, did the Flixist Community agree? Thanks to Flixist Community Discusses, we'll discover why DOFP may or may not be successful in what it set out to do! 

Gathered from the comments (from both the opinions post and the review) and Twitter, here's what the Flixist Community thinks of X-Men: Days of Future Past. Spoilers ahead!
