X-Men Movie Gambit Starring Channing Tatum Moves Forward

This summer we first heard about a planned solo superhero movie based on the Marvel Comics character Gambit. It was reported Channing Tatum would star, but no other news surfaced until now.

According to deadline.com, 20th Century Fox has hired 'RoboCop' co-writer Josh Zetumer to work on the screenplay.

As of today (11-1-14), Fox hasn't announced an opening date, but 'Gambit' is expected to open after 'X-Men: Apocalypse' (2016).

Robert Downey Jr. Talks Avengers: Age of Ultron

When Marvel's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' drops next summer Tony Stark will be in a much different place than he was in 2012's 'The Avengers'.

In an interview dated 10-30-14, Robert Downey Jr. talks about how Stark has changed, both physically and psychologically, since the last time we saw the character in 'Iron Man 3'.

Here's a snippet from the interview, courtesy of Marvel's Marc Strom -

“I thought that the third Iron Man was about [Tony] transcending his dependence on the merits of continuing to wear your wound,” the actor elaborates. “That was what [director] Shane [Black] and I thought was the real win, that he throws that thing that had become a dependency away. Because that was the question I was always asking, why doesn’t he get those shards out [of his chest]? It’s dangerous." - Robert Downey Jr., via marvel.com

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' opens May 1, 2015.

Marvel Studios Boss Talks Changes In The Avengers Roster

Will the Avengers have a new lineup at the conclusion of Marvel's upcoming epic 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'?

There's been a lot of chatter online about the changes coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but now we have official confirmation.

Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige told Buzzfeed in an article dated 10-27-14 that we'll see a new Avengers roster.

Check out the quote below for Feige's exact words.

“The Avengers films, ideally, in the grand plan are always big, giant linchpins,” says Feige. “It’s like as it was in publishing, when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event. Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was. I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, because the [Avengers] roster is altered by the finale of this film.” - Kevin Feige

James Spader Talks About Playing Avengers Villain Ultron

According to James Spader, the Big Bad in next summer's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is nothing less than “psychopathic" and "batshit crazy".

In an article dated 10-23-14, the Emmy-winning actor chatted about taking on the role of Marvel's maniacal, killer android. In the interview, Spader described Ultron as being like "...a very powerful, smart child."

When Marvel announced Spader as the voice of Ultron I was a bit skeptical he was the right choice, but after seeing the first trailer for 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' I'm totally on board.

DC Comic Movie Lineup Through 2020 Announced!: http://youtu.be/8r-yOl755g0

Robert Downey Jr. Will Have Major Role In 'Captain America 3'

iron man
Disney/Marvel
Big news broke on Monday (Oct. 13) when +Variety reported Robert Downey Jr. will appear in the third Captain America solo film - slated for a May 6, 2016 opening. According to the site, the follow-up to this year's massive hit 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' will pit RDJ's Iron Man against Chris Evans' Cap.

Although +Marvel Entertainment hasn't conformed the report, Variety states 'Captain America 3' will be based on the 2006 Marvel Comics storyline 'Civil War'. If you're not familiar, 'Civil War' saw Marvel's superheroes taking sides over something called 'The Superhero Registration Act'. On one side was Captain America and his supporters, who opposed the Act, and on the other side was Iron Man and his crew, who thought the Act was a good idea.

Check Out The First Official Pics From The 'Daredevil' Netflix Series

Disney/Marvel
Sometime in 2015 we'll see the first series from +Marvel Entertainment on +Netflix - the action/drama 'Daredevil'. The series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and features Vincent D'Onofrio as the villainous Wilson Fisk/Kingpin.

To say the least, I'm really looking forward to 'Daredevil' because I think the Netflix platform will give the show a freedom that network TV doesn't allow. I expect to see a level of realism that we haven't experienced in the superhero genre before.

While we anticipate the first 13 episodes of 'Daredevil' to arrive next year I thought I'd round up a few things of note that surfaced recently.

First, the graphic at that the top of this post is the official logo for the series, which Marvel dropped last week.

Below, check out a couple of promo pics that Marvel revealed at New York Comic Con 2014 over the weekend (Oct 10-12). The first image shows Cox in costume as The Man Without Fear, and the other photo shows the actor in civilian garb as lawyer Murdock.
