If Gamora gets a title, it doesn't need to automatically be an ongoing, as some would believe. Giving a short series to a character is perfectly acceptable.

Except Deadpool seems to be the only person getting miniseries these days.

I find it extremely hard to believe that a character that has only recently become famous is expected to hold a solo ongoing. Before the film hit theaters and scored huge, her getting a series was a long shot. Now, she's a known B-lister, but she's still a B-lister.

It's profoundly difficult to believe that the words "Gamora" and "title" call to mind any serious thought of an ongoing.

Simon Kinberg Says X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Explores More of the Beast and Mystique Relationship; Talks Having Fun with the 80s Setting

Quote:
Kinberg previously revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse is the close of a trilogy that began with X-Men: First Class, and he told me that the relationship between Beast and Mystique will be getting more screen time in this next film than it did in Days of Future Past:

“I will say that [X-Men: Apocalypse] is definitely the close of a trilogy for those First Class characters, which isn’t to say we won’t see them in future movies, hopefully we will, but it’s a completion of an arc for them. I think that the friendship between Erik and Charles, which has always been so integral to the franchise, is something we’re continuing to explore and hopefully deepen with Apocalypse. And the relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in Days of Future Past, so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in Apocalypse.”

First Class can be seen Erik’s story and Days of Future Past can be seen as Charles’ story, so I asked Kinberg if Apocalypse would similarly single out one of the main characters. He declined to go into any details about the story’s focus given that it’s still very early, but he did say that Apocalypse explores how the influence of both Erik and Charles has impacted Mystique:

“Part of what’s really interesting about Mystique’s character is that she is, in some ways, the child of both Erik and Charles. She grew up with Charles and then she sort of became a woman with Erik, so her being the cross-pollination, if you will, of those two philosophies and those two men is something we can explore in the movie too.”

With regards to the film’s 1980s setting, Kinberg said that he and Singer have been very much enjoying writing in the time period:

“We’re having a lot of fun with the idea of the 80s. It’s a decade that Bryan and I both grew up in and so the music, the style, the aesthetic, the legacy of 80s movies is something we’re really having fun with.”

Finally, while Kinberg said that budget specifics haven’t been worked out yet, I asked if Fox is giving the team a bigger sandbox to play in after the box office numbers of Days of Future Past:

“There are some very big set pieces. I don’t know what the budget’s gonna be because we’re still a ways away from budgeting the film, but I can say that Fox has a lot of creative confidence in the team that made Days of Future Past—myself, Bryan, Lauren Shuler Donner, Hutch Parker. All of those people are coming back so in terms of a sandbox they’re definitely giving us a lot of room to play creatively and take chances the way that we took some chances on Days of Future Past, and do some radical things just as I think we did some radical things in Days of Future Past.”

well that was unexpected


RDJ Will Do IRON MAN 4 if MEL GIBSON Directs


An extended and revealing interview with Deadline gave fans an inside look at Robert Downey, Jr.’s career and what he thinks about playing Iron Man. Oh, and it provided that surprising but true headline (that we shamelessly borrowed from our friends there - thanks, Deadline!).

The actor says that Iron Man 3 took him out of a “five year flight of fancy” that he could remain an action star. A busted ankle on the set of that movie made him feel his age, and know his time was short. “Looking back, I’m surprised and really embarrassed that some middle aged guy was thinking like that. And I honestly don’t think like that presently. But I also know that it could happen again, this bit of a hypnosis that would make someone think that way.”

"I also think about how much easier it was to remember on this last Avengers [Age of Ultron] that I’m 20 years older than pretty much everyone there," the actor said. “That’s pretty much the cast. Ruffalo and I are a little closer in age and maybe Spader has a couple years on me, but you know what I mean.”

Speaking specifically on Iron Man 4, Downey backtracked ever so slightly on his "won’t do Iron Man 4" statements of the past, instead saying that his relationship with Iron Man is "all being talked about on a bunch of different levels right now." He was first very praising of Marvel Studios and specifically their president, though.

"Marvel keeps stepping up its game, and I appreciate the way Kevin Feige and all the creatives there think. They are as in the creative wheelhouse as any great studio has been at any point," said Downey. That leads him to look at things both from his own perspective and from Marvel’s. “So it becomes a matter of, at what point do I cease to be an asset to what they’re doing, and at what point do I feel I am spending so much time either shooting or promoting these films that I’m not actually able to get off the beachhead and do the kind of other stuff that is good for all of us. Each one of those movies is spread over two years and some people fit other things in.”

Citing his age, as he’s about to turn 50, and the fact that he’ll also soon have two young children (with one toddler and another on the way), as well as the films he’s producing with his wife as all being contributing factors to the “points of departure,” Downey did seem to still indicate that his journey as Tony Stark is nearing its conclusion.

Of course, after discussing his friend Mel Gibson, who he says is both repentant for his outspoken and anti-Semitic comments and has also “changed,” Downey offered up a scenario where he’d do Iron Man 4: if Gibson directed it. “Why not? That movie would be bananas,” he ended the interview.

‘Fantastic Four’ Costumes Aren’t ‘Cheesy Superhero Outfits, Michael B. Jordan Says

Quote:
Miles Teller’s recent assurance that Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot will be “different in every way” from its 2005 predecessor extends to the costumes worn by Marvel’s First Family.

Asked during an interview with Wonderwall how he felt about donning the Human Torch’s tight-fitting threads, actor Michael B. Jordan said “the costume part wasn’t that bad.”

“I think we did a really good job at making it modern, new, fresh without going to the cheesy superhero outfits,” he said. “We didn’t take the easy way out at all. So I didn’t mind it so much.”

Jordan elaborated on that to The Daily Beast, recalling his first time in the costume.

“I think it wasn’t on set, but it was during the fittings when I put on the full outfit and looked at myself in the mirror, and I was like, ‘Oh shit. Game on!’” he said. “It was like, this is it! This is what it looks like. This is what it feels like. It felt good. [...] You can talk about it and discuss it and what not it. But it’s not until you get on set and put on those clothes that you become that person. You kind of check out. Mike checked out. I was playing Johnny Storm. I was doing it. No more talking about it. You gotta be about it.”

I find it odd that they just KEEP going out of their way to harp on how different their movie will be from typical superhero fare, when evidence suggests that people are kind of loving superhero fare these days (or at least Marvel superhero fare).

I mean, I guess they need to be more specific about what superhero fare they are comparing themselves to. When they talk about how this movie is going to be different than a typical superhero movie, and these costumes aren't "cheesy superhero outfits", etc., what are they setting themselves up against? What would be an example of "cheesy superhero outfits" in recent memory? What kinds of RECENT superhero movies are they trying to distinguish themselves from? Or are they just trying to distance themselves from the previous FF films?

Without specifics, it ends up with them basically telling the movie-going public, "We're going to be REALLY different from other superhero movies!" when that same public has been flocking to superhero movies in droves for the past several years...

I say go for it. If you want a trainwreck, at least go all the way to make it as amusing as humanly possible. I want this to make Batman And Robin look like the Avengers.

I know what you're talking about, and I don't care. I don't need Mel Gibson to be a shining light of decency in order for me to enjoy a movie directed by him. I'm with West, though, it in all likelihood won't happen. But the man can direct a movie and that's all I care about.

I'm looking forward to the first footage of the Fantastic Four. I think because of the success of the X-Men franchise and Marvel studio films, Fox studio knows there's money to be made with FF and are making an honest effort to making a quality film. I sincerely hope they do. The last FF film was borderline Batman and Robin and taking a 180 degree turn from that film may not be sure a bad idea.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be super happy if it is awesome. Even thought I've never read ANY FF, it seems like exactly the kind of thing that SHOULD make a fun movie, but I've avoided the previous ones because everything I've ever heard about them is negative. If I had an attachment to the characters, I probably would have ignored that and watched anyway (I heard plenty of bad things about the GL movie before I saw it, but went anyway), but as it is...nah.

However, nothing I've heard about this one has me very optimistic, and I'm not talking about fanboy ranting, but the things the people MAKING the film have been saying, like concentrating on what it ISN'T instead of what exactly it is, odd casting choices (race swapping can be just fine- worked great for Nick Fury- but race swapping HALF of a pair of siblings? That leaves me scratching my head, wondering why not just do the same for Sue?), and mentions of "found footage", none of that stuff fills me with a great deal of anticipation.
