Will We See More Of CAPTAIN AMERICA’S Peggy Carter At San Diego Comic-Con?

Posted on 19 April 2013 by William Gatevackes

HayleyAtwellCaptainAmerica

Even though Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter was only in a little bit of Captain America: The First Avenger, she seems to have made an impression fans. And thanks to those fans, we’ll be seeing a little bit more of her.

Atwell was interviewed by The Age about her possible involvement in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, involvement she is reticent to confirm or deny even though she is included in a cast list in an official press release from Marvel. However, she did reveal that footage featuring her would be shown and a certain comic book convention:

“There’s been an online campaign for Peggy to be featured. People really liked her. So Marvel have made sure that as part of Comicon there will be a little kind of snapshot as to what Peggy’s actually really capable of, which was finished here and which was great fun. Hopefully, it will lead to other things.”

Brendon Connelly over at  Bleeding Cool seems to think that Peggy Carter will be making an appearance in a Marvel One-Shot, a line of short subjects that began with The Consultant on the Thor Blu-Ray, continued with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer on the Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-Ray and  Item 47, a short that was attached to The Avengers Blu-Ray. Even though the last two had at best a transitory connection to the Marvel Film Universe, using these One-Shots to flesh out supporting characters who might not be able to support their own film is a great idea.

However, the way it sounds is that footage being shown will not be as long as the shorts typically run. So what this footage might be might be scenes from Winter Soldier featuring Peggy.

I guess we’ll see in a couple months when Comic-Con rolls around.

Four Things To Know About Barry Levinson’s Found Footage Horror Film THE BAY

Posted on 15 October 2012 by Rich Drees

Barry-LevinsonAt first glance, The Bay is not the type of film one would normally expect from director Barry Levinson. A found footage horror film doesn’t sound as if it belongs in the same wheelhouse as such comedies as Diner and Good Morning Vietnam or political satires like Wag The Dog and Man Of The Year. But once you dig into the film, you’ll find some of the interesting things that intrigued Levinson lurking underneath the surface of an incredible effective ecological disaster/horror film.

This weekend we had the opportunity to sit down with Levinson backstage at the New York Comic Con to talk about the film, how he came to make it and how it will affect how he makes films in the future. Here are four things we learned in the discussion.

Levinson initially did not set out to make a horror film, but a documentary.

I wouldn’t know how to approach doing a frightening, scary movie. I was approached about doing a documentary on the Chesapeake Bay because it is 40% dead and has all those ecological issues. I gathered all this information and thought ‘Wow, this is really frightening’ and I thought ‘I don’t know if a documentary is the way to go.’ But I began to think about it and said ‘Well, look, I do tell stories, why don’t I take all the information and weave into the story so it would become more credible?’ And that information that floats out there seems credible and frightening. So it began to evolve that way.

And even when he decided to make the film a narrative story, it wasn’t intentionally a found-footage film.

When we talk about the movie, I guess it falls into the found footage genre. It never occurred to me, this found footage genre. I was thinking if a catastrophic event happened to a town and there was no media, how would we know what happened? And because of all this, we’ll now get an intimate look at a town and its people that we never would have had in the history of mankind. All of this stuff gives an intimacy that never existed before.

Levinson insisted on shooting the film digitally with standard, off-the-shelf consumer grade cameras to create a verisimilitude that couldn’t be created with a professional digital camera.

I think it was the best thing to do… We did the tests by taking a high end camera and degrading it and I looked at it and it still to me looked like a high end camera that’s degraded. To my eye it didn’t look real. And so, we took about a hundred and some cameras and we just kept testing them and projecting them and seeing what they do and out of that we picked about twenty-sum that seemed, ‘All right, we’ll use this, we’ll use the Sony for the underwater thing for the kids and they can go under and whatever, we’ll use this, we’ll use the iPhone, and we just picked and choose so we had this visual palette. And that to me became as real as you can make it, because it is real.

Based on his experience shooting digitally, Levinson doesn’t see himself going to producing movies on film.

I don’t see the value of shooting on film, personally. I know there are some directors who see value in shooting film, but I don’t see it. You can shoot some very, very classical stuff digital and you can tweak it as you want.

Look, we are on the edge of the biggest change in the history of film since its inception. What’s happening now, between the kind of collision of everything with the internet and all of those things, begins to redefine the whole nature of film. Everything is going to be totally redefined. What was, was. Where we’re going is a whole new place. So coming here and seeing a convergence of everything that is beginning to explode is really fascinating. Can I talk about movies in the past and how much I love them? Yeah. But that’s in the past. Where we’re going to go, that’s the excitement.

The Bay opens November 7.

NYCC: Producer Michael Uslan Batdances Around Future Of Franchise

Posted on 14 October 2012 by Rich Drees

Photo by Margaret Walther

With the conclusion of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, fans have been wondering what the future holds in store for Batman on the silver screen. And how better to answer those questions than the producer responsible for bringing the Caped Crusader to the movies, Michael Uslan. But during his appearance at the New York Comic Con this weekend, Uslan, who shepherded the Tim Burton Batman film starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson to theaters in 1989, was very pointed about not addressing what kind of discussions were going on at Warner Brothers concerning the superhero franchise or whether the rumors that Batman‘s appearance in a possible Justice League film would be separate from where the franchise would go next.

As Uslan opened the floor to questions, he was immediately greeted with “What next?” He replied with a chuckle, “So what do you think about the Yankees? You know A-Rod’s benched tonight…”

Usland then turned more serious, stating -

We’re not ready to turn that page yet. You’ve probably all seen the media and the buzz about the Justice League movie percolating and news like that. I’ll tell you something and this is nothing to do with me as a producer or anything professionally related, if you want me to speak as just fanboy Michael and strictly fanboy Michael, how cool would it be to one day to see Batman Beyond. With Clint Eastwood playing Bruce Wayne in his 80s!

Another fanboy dream – What actors are the right age now for Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns? How do you show a Batman in his late 50s coming out of retirement bitter, for one last battle to the death with the Joker, until I realize, that’s interesting, Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson are now about the right age!

This is just the fanboy talking. It has nothing to do with the real world.

But even the fanboy excuse wasn’t big enough for Uslan to hide behind when asked, if as a fanboy he liked the idea of a cohesive cinematic superhero universe similar to how Marvel Studios has been producing their films or if he preferred to see future Batman films remain separate from the in development Justice League film.

I don’t want to go there. I think that Marvel has done an absolutely great job with [their films]. I am a huge fan of Iron Man 1 in particular. I really love that movie.

Is there anything that we can read into that statement? It seems to me that this confirms that there is definitely some internal discussions going on as to whether the Batman franchise will be linked or not with the Justice League film. And given Uslan’s reluctance to engage in even fanboy speculation it sounds as if he is very much a part of that conversation and that it is far from over.

SDCC 2012: Thomas Jane’s Love Letter To THE PUNISHER: DIRTY LAUNDRY

Posted on 16 July 2012 by William Gatevackes

Rumor has it that 2004′s The Punisher made a comic book fan out of Thomas Jane. He struck up a friendship with the cover artist for the Punisher comic book, Tim Bradstreet, who used him as a reference for the covers to Dark Horse’s Cal McDonald series. He started RAW entertainment with Bradstreet and Cal McDonald creator Steve Niles, and wrote one of its comic book offerings, Bad Planet.

He campaigned for the role of Jonah Hex, eventually voicing the character for an animated feature. He was briefly attached to play the role of the Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen. And he famously dropped out of a sequel to The Punisher when it became clear to him that the film was moving in a direction that would do a diservice to the character.

But it would be hard to imagine that Jane would become a fan enough of the character to create a fan film around the character. And he didn’t, wink wink, nudge nudge. But Dirty Laundry is as close as you can come to a Punisher film without getting sued by Marvel/Disney. Jane is not shy about the inspiration for the short:

“I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”

The film runs about 10 minutes and was directed by Phil Joanou (Three O’Clock High, Rattle and Hum, State of Grace, Gridiron Gang). Ron Perlman has a small role as a store clerk. The lead character, played by Jane, is never mentioned as Frank Castle or the Punisher by name, but if you want the character to be the Punisher, they don’t tell you it isn’t him either.

Here is Dirty Laundry:

Marvel Gives First Look At New IRON MAN 3 Armor

Posted on 15 July 2012 by Rich Drees

Not everything that was revealed at San Diego Comic Con about Marvel Studio’s upcoming Iron Man 3 was done so at the panel for the film. Earlier in the day, at Marvel’s booth on the convention floor, they presented for a short time the new Mark VIII armor that Robert Downey Jr ‘s Tony Stark will be wearing in the film. Click on the images below (via Cinema Blend) for a much bigger look.

So, what to make of the new paint job? Honestly, I’m a bit non-plussed by it. I’m not sure I really like the mustard yellow color that seems to dominate the color scheme. Perhaps there is some story reason for it looking this color? Does it somehow tie in with the film’s plot being heavily influenced by the Extremis Iron Man storyline? We’ll see.

SDCC 2012: Marvel Studios Panel Highlights.

Posted on 14 July 2012 by William Gatevackes

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con would be a highly anticipated panel even if The Avengers didn’t set box office records.  But the expectations are even higher now as people are wondering how the studio is going to be able to top 2012. Some of that speculation ends here, and new speculations will begin.

  • Thor 2 now officially titled Thor: The Dark World.
  • Captain America 2 now officially titled, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. As fans of the comics will know, the Winter Soldier was Cap’s partner Bucky, who instead of dying, was captured by the Russians, brainwashed and turned into an assassin. So, did Sebastian Stan have a deal for two films?
  • It’s official! Coming to us from Marvel on August 1, 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy! We’ll be having posts in the next few days concerning what to expect from the film, including a history of the concept and characters as they appeared in the comic book.
  • For those of you crestfallen that Ant-Man was not the next in line for the Marvel film treatment, don’t despair too much. Edgar Wright was there and presented the rumored test footage he did to show the shrinking special effects, This is what Brendon Connolly at Bleeding Cool had to say about it:

    As he walked on stage to take a seat, Edgar Wright held up a copy of the Ant Man comics. This one.Wright said that he wanted to adapt that story, To Steal an Ant Man, and that’s still his plan before teasing us and then, to swooning, unveiled his test footage for the film.

    The sequence was largely unfinished but showed ant man looking out of an air vent into a corridor towards an elevator door protected by two CIA-looking suited up goons. He grows to full size, leaps through the air and shrinks as he does so, delivering his kick at ant size, but will full-scale weight.

    During the scene he lands on the barrel of one of the agents guns and runs along it mini sized.

    The character has not been cast, and the performer in the suit was only a stand in, but Wright did speak a little about the costume. While it won’t be final, it did indicate what they are going for – a mixture of the contemporary look and the silver age design.

    Wright says that “Ant Man will kick your ass… one inch at a time.” I don’t know about one inch at a time. My ass is already kicked up and down.

  • The Iron Man 3 footage showed us that, yes, Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin, and that he will have ten rings and ceremonial garb.

No mention of The Black Panther, or any of the other rumored films Marvel has in the pipeline. I’m sure that will come in time. But now, what do you think?

SDCC ’12: Quentin Tarantino To Write DJANGO UNCHAINED For Vertigo Comics

Posted on 14 July 2012 by William Gatevackes

It is pretty obvious that Quentin Tarantino is somewhat of a comic book fan. There have been references to comic books in many of his films–a Silver Surfer poster on a wall in Reservoir Dogs, the lead in his script for True Romance working in a comic book store, the secret identity riff in Kill Bill: Vol 2. But Tarantino has been reticent to follow fellow comic book fan filmmakers such as Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon to write comics.

That is, until now. Maybe.

Quentin Tarantino, in typical Tarantino fashion, left the panel promoting his latest film, Django Unchained and made a beeline to the DC Comics panel promoting their Before Watchmen line, bursting in to announce that a five-issue  Django Unchained miniseries featuring writing by Tarantino will appear from DC’s Vertigo imprint before the film hits theaters.

What form this writing will take is still up to debate. Steve Morris over at The Beat says that Tarantino will be writing the miniseries himself (but he also states that the film stars Jamie Fox and Christophe Waltz, not Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz, so, there you go) while Bleeding Cool‘s Brendon Connelly states it will only be Tarantino’s script for the film that will be adapted. If this is true, it might follow a format like how Dynamite Entertainment handled Kevin Smith’s unproduced scripts for his Green Hornet and Bionic Man films–they had other writers convert the scripts into comic book form.

I’m sure we’ll find out more as the hours go on.

Your San Diego Comic-Con Film Panel Guide

Posted on 10 July 2012 by William Gatevackes

Last month, Variety ran an article about Fox, Paramount and Relativity in skipping Hall H presentations at San Diego Comic-Con, which cause a lot of the comic book news sites to proclaim that this might mark the beginning of the film studios abandoning Comic-Con and a return a more comics skewing focus.

Whether these studios’ taking a year off is a sign of things to come or a sign that they don’t have much to promote this year remains to be seen. But there will still be plenty of focus on films at the con, not only in Hall H but also at various venues across the city, in the form of panels, the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, the San Diego International Children’s Film Festival, and a strong Anime presence.

Here is a list of the film related events going on in conjunction with the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con:

Thursday, July 12

The highlight of the first official day of SDCC ’12 has to be the final Twilight panel. Yes, no longer will you have to camp over night to see a panel in Hall H. As a matter of fact, unless you’re jonesing to see movie trailers that you will soon be able to watch on You Tube at your leisure, you might not have to camp out at all. The Twilight panel is the first official panel in the room, and the Twi-Hards and their Twi-Moms typically clear out the moment the panel ends. Experience Hall H as it once was, before the twinkling vampires took over!

Other highlights include the Disney panel, where Big Hero 6 might be officially announced; the RiffTrax panel, which is always fun; and the debut of documentaries on Image Comics and SDCC itself.

Don’t be sad if you miss the celebration of 1982 panel at the con, because we will be celebrating the summer releases of the film right here all summer long. And don’t bother with the Masters of the Web series, since neither Rich nor I were invited to be on the panel, it will be substandard at best.

On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of his best friends — Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more — to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but everything could change for the overprotective dad when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Friday, July 13

The highlight of the day has to be the Sony panel, which will give us a glimpse of the highly anticipated Total Recall and Looper films. I am personally crestfallen that I am going to miss the Firefly reunion panel. Other than that, there seems to be a big focus on Star Wars and strong women both in front and behind the camera—two worthy Comic-Con subjects. And that Stripped documentary looks interesting.

10:00-11:00 Comic-Con Film School 102: Production—Day 2 of this four-day course on microbudget moviemaking focuses on the specifics of production, from shooting techniques, lighting on the cheap, and crew positions you need (and don’t need) to costuming, props, and set decorating for as little money as possible.

Don’t be dazzled by the prospect of having your name up on the big screen or big potential paydays without the legal background necessary to understand what the contract actually says. And even the most brilliant negotiators cannot hope to succeed without an understanding of the business models used by the companies making an offer. Noted attorney Michael Lovitz, author of the acclaimed The Trademark and Copyright Book comic book, is back and ready to tackle a number of the more advanced issues facing authors, artists, and designers, particularly once they’ve “broken through” and have started publishing and selling (and maybe merchandising or media, too). This second Comic Book Law School session addresses some of the complicated issues surrounding marketing properties and creative ideas, including: transfers and licensing of rights; production, merchandising, and distribution agreements; and the key things you should know when Hollywood comes knocking. This interactive seminar gives attendees the opportunity to participate in the discussions as Lovitz (ably assisted by entertainment attorney Mona Metwalli) covers various means for profiting from creative works and explores the many important elements that form the foundation of every contract (and time permitting, maybe participate in a mock contract negotiation). This year they are joined by CPA/CFF Dean Bower, who will be presenting tales of Hollywood and big business audits.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end.

On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.

A year later, Perry was hired to work on an animation short, Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest, about a young Holocaust survivor (actress Ingrid Pitt’s story), under the guidance of Plympton. The rest is history. A panel of the creative team, sponsors, and distributor, including Perry Chen (animator), Kevin Sean Michaels (director), Bill Plympton (storyboard and character design), Zhu Shen (producer), Karina Bessoudo (Toon Boom Animation, vice president of marketing and communications), Douglas Little (Wacom, public relations), and Linda Olszewski (Shorts International co-head of worldwide acquisition), share the amazing behind-the-scenes story: how a first-time child animator’s film got sponsorship from leading animation companies, went on to premiere at the 2011 Comic-Con and LA Shorts Fest, won multiple film festival awards, was featured in Animation magazine and on 2011 Animation Show of Shows, qualified for an Academy Award, touched many hearts, and secured worldwide distribution by Shorts International, the distributor of Oscar-nominated shorts and other outstanding short films. This lively panel, moderated by Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) will share tips and lessons learned not only about getting started with animation, but also how to identify and secure corporate sponsorships; how get your film produced, marketed, and distributed; and how to select the right film festivals for your film.
