Jon Favreau Producing New Live Action Star Wars Show

Published

on

Jon Favreau helped to jumpstart the MCU with Iron Man, now he will do the same thing with Star Wars. Disney announced that the writer/director will be heading a new project for the Disney streaming service.

“If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Favreau said. “I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure.”

“I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “Jon brings the perfect mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe. This series will allow Jon the chance to work with a diverse group of writers and directors and give Lucasfilm the opportunity to build a robust talent base.”

The untitled Star Wars live-action series does not yet have a release date. Disney first unveiled plans for the series back in November. The Disney streaming service is expected to launch by the end of 2019.

Joaquin Phoenix Breaks Down His Thoughts On The Joker Role

Published

on

Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly gearing up to play The Joker in a new origin story for Warner Bros. Heath Ledger’s classic performance as the Joker in Christopher Nolans Dark Knight brought the character to a new height in popularity.
Phoenix was recently asked his thoughts on following Ledger’s performance.

“I don’t know about that movie or character specifically, but I was thinking about it’s interesting with comics there’s different writers and artists that come on. It’s different than this character from literature being uniquely that. There are different interpretations. It’s so interesting; I was just thinking about it today, it seems so unique in some ways to comic books. I think there’s probably room for that. Maybe it’s like doing a play, like you always hear about people doing something, ‘You should have seen this actor in this performance,’ but then other actors do it and it’s a different kind of film. I think that genre, comic books, kind of lends itself to having different people play the same character and interpret it in a different way. It’s kind of built into the source material in some ways. I think it’s cool when people do that.”

The Best Things About The Deadpool 2 Final Trailer

Published

on

Deadpool 2’s so-called final trailer has everything fans could want: Confirmation of a few new X-Men characters, plenty of Cable and Deadpool cross chatter and, of course, a dig at Warner Bros. slate of DC Comics movie adaptations.

“You’re no fuckin’ hero,” Josh Brolin’s Cable growls at our anti-hero, “You’re just a clown dressed up as a sex toy.”

Everything about the trailer is filled with Deadpool’s classic humor with better action. We also learn a couple of things about the movie.

Cable Is The Bad Guy?

Honestly, we don’t know that. But he looks badass and won’t be stopped.  In this final trailer, he does indeed seem like he is at odds with Wade/Deadpool, as Cable is trying to (possibly?) kill a kid, who Deadpool thinks needs protecting. “Pump the hate brakes, Thanos,” quips Deadpool to the camera (you know, because Brolin is also playing the big baddie in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie).

Deadpool Needs Help To Stop Cable

Wade realizes he can’t beat Cable on his own, so he’s going to form his own “super duper fucking group,” to which T.J. Miller’s Weasel replies, “It’s time to get back on LinkedIn.” Brilliant. For all of Miller’s current personal woes and allegations leveled at him, he still looks hilarious in this, sparring with Ryan Reynolds. We finally learn that Terry Crews is the mutant Bedlum. But who really steals the show is Peter, just an ordinary dude that responded to an ad.

Domino Is Lucky ASF

Domino’s superpowers are luck. Those superpowers fail to impress Deadpool and Weasel during the interview.
The way her powers are portrayed on screen are definitely “cinematic,” that’s for damn sure.

Also the movie diverges from the Comic with her siding with Deadpool before she meets Cable.
