Justice League: Mad Max's George Miller Will Be Producer On DC Saga

Warner Bros.
This is great news for DC fans! I learned recently that the creator of the Mad Max franchise - George Miller - will have a hand in bringing DC's Justice League to the big screen

Miller was actually set to direct a live-action Justice League movie about a decade ago, but the project fell apart. At this point I'm not sure how much of an input Miler will have on Justice League: Part One (opening Nov. 17, 2017), but it's cool just knowing the director of Mad Max: Fury Road is involved with the movie.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD: Showrunners Confirm Grant Ward's Villain Identity

marvel tv

Earlier this month there was a lot of speculation about who (or what) Grant Ward had been transformed into at the end of the mid-season finale. Fans familiar with Marvel Comics lore guessed Ward was now the creepy entity known as Hive.

Today we got confirmation on that speculation thanks to Agents of SHIELD producers - Yes, Grant is actually Hive, although we don't know if the real Grant will return or not.

As you can see from the image above, the final version of the costume that Brianna Hildebrand wore in the film was very different from the earlier designs.

There's been a bit of a shake-up to Fox's superhero movie schedule, including a change for the X-Men spinoff Gambit.

Fox announced today it was pulling Gambit's October 7, 2016 opening date, and the studio added a pair of new opening dates for Marvel movies. The two new movies are under wraps for now, but it's possible Gambit will take one of the slots.

Bottom line: We'll see a Marvel movie from Fox on October 6, 2017, and another on January 12, 2018.

Captain America: Civil War: Directors Say Movie Is Darker Than Winter Soldier

Marvel
Joe and Anthony Russo - co-directors of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War - have dropped a bit of new intel on the upcoming saga. According to the directing duo, we can expect the movie to be even more intense than Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Here's what the Russos told Cleveland.com -
"We really did a radical reinterpretation of Captain America in Winter Soldier. We were twice as aggressive in tone and execution on Civil War."
Okay, the above quote raises all types of questions, particularly when it comes to the fate of certain Avengers. What do you think of this Marvel news?

Okay, this isn't exactly earth-shattering news, but I know there's a ton of X-Men fans out there who might like it. One of the stars of X-Men: Apocalypse took to social media to share a rather "cheeky" photo. Olivia Munn posted a pic showing a new view of her costume and the results of all that physical training she undertook in preparation for the X-Men saga.

Check out the behind-the-scenes pic below and read on for a recent quote from Olivia about training for her character Psylocke.

A photo posted by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on


"I worked for many months training. I did like six or seven hours a day. Sword and Tai Kwon Do training. And stunt training. And wire training. And I shot a fight scene for about two weeks. So, I hope there is a big fight scene that still remains in the movie. I shot one, so hopefully there will be one. I did get hurt training. Most of it was self-inflicted. I have a picture of my leg that is completely bruised from my ankle all the way up to my thigh. That was just because I was at home trying to learn sword by myself. And this was before I asked for a not-so-sharp blade to practice with." - Olivia Munn

X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27.
