The post First Look At X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX Published appeared first on FilmBuffOnline.

]]>
Any comic book fan worth their salt will tell you that “The Dark Phoenix Saga” is the seminal X-Men arc in their comics. However, after a horrid adaptation of the story in X-Men: The Last Stand, we thought we’d never get to see the story done right.  That might not be the case, as images from X-Men: Dark Phoenix published in Entertainment Weekly give us hope that the magnum opus will get the proper respect in that film.

The seven images give us our first look at Sophie Turner as Jean Grey as she turns into the Phoenix, Jessica Chastain as Lilandra, and a very telling piece of production art involving a Space Shuttle. Fans familiar the Phoenix’s comic book origins will know that the character is a cosmic entity who took over Jean Grey’s form after an accident in a Space Shuttle in outer space involving solar flares endangered the lives of the X-Men. The Phoenix Force allowed Grey to save her teammates, but eventually corrupted her form and became an unimaginably powerful creature of absolute evil.

It appears that this part of the origin will be added to the film continuity, which will be a break from both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Apocalypse which hinted that the “Phoenix” was in Jean Grey all along and just a natural escalation of her powers. In my opinion, this change is a good thing, because the comic book version is a much more interesting, and more tragic, presentation of the origin.

The images are presented below. X-Men: Dark Phoenix opens November 2, 2018.

Does it hew closely to the comics, or is it a new design? Check inside. [click for more]

meraAquaman was one of the first comic book superheroes to get married. His wife, Mera, was an alien from an aquatic world who could make water do her bidding. Their union was a longtime component of the Aquaman mythos, so its it good to see that Mera will be making the leap to the big screen with her husband. Now, we finally have a sneak peek at how Amber Heard will look playing the character.

IGN passed along Warners reveal for the character, including design sketches and a video short describing the process. Here is the photo of Mera in full costume:

mera-in-aquamanUnlike the design for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Mera’s design matches the comic book version of her more closely. I bet that if it wasn’t for the grimy grey wash Warners thinks adds depth to its superhero line, the green in her costume would really pop.

Mera is supposed to appear next November in the Justice League film, with a bigger role in Aquaman, opening July 27, 2018.

Hugh Jackman OLD! smallHugh Jackman is trending on Facebook, and not in a good way! An Instagram post he made yesterday shows him looking much older, tired and haggard!

Now that's what I'm talking about!

A photo posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on

What could have caused People’s 2008 Sexiest Man of the Year to look like he’s ready for the grave? Was it some kind of disease?

We can exclusively report that it was a disease, one that has plagued Hollywood for generations and claimed a number of actors and actresses over the years. Almost everyone who has worked in the film industry has been touched by this disease in one way or another. The disease called stage makeup.

It would be at this point that I would like to remind everyone Jackman is currently film the next Wolverine sequel, and that the film will be adapting the “Old Man Logan” storyline from the comics, a story that focused on a much older Wolverine in the future. See below.

Hugh Jackman Old Man Logan comic

What was most likely was that Jackman simply didn’t take his remarkably good stage makeup off while having lunch so he wouldn’t have to reapply it after. So, don’t worry. He’s probably still as hot and hunky as he was just several days ago.

And sorry about the clickbait title and description for this post. But if people are getting hits out of jumping to conclusions instead of looking to the most logical answer, well, why can’t we?

civil war empire coverOnce upon a time, movie magazines ruled the Earth. Now, once there was many, now there are but few. And one of the best of the bunch is England’s Empire Magazine, which justifies it’s existence with scoop from upcoming films. This issue, it is Captain America: Civil War.

The film is the cover story of the latest issue, which will hit stands in the UK on Thursday. The issue’s biggest scoop is that it reveals who Martin Freeman’s character is in the film.

civil war empire comics everett rossFreeman will be playing Everett Ross. In the comics, Ross is a member of the U.S. State Department charged with being the official government liaison with foreign dignitaries who visit America. It is this role that he first met T’Challa, King of Wakanda, also known as the Black Panther. Ross eventually became a member of the Black Panther’s supporting cast, which will give us some indication where we will see Freeman next and what story lines Marvel is looking at for the Black Panther film.

The article also gives us the first official look at Frank Grillo as Crossbones, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, and other goodies.

Captain America: Civil War arrives in theaters on May 6, 2016. Images from the Empire article will be presented below.

BATMAN V.

Batman v superman empire darkseid sigil

Ah, Empire. For some reason, Warner Brothers really likes you. They seem to give you scoop even their in-house magazines, namely Entertainment Weekly, doesn’t get. Namely, a sneak peak of a ground decoration from Batman V. Superman that all but confirms that an iconic villain from the comics will be appearing in the franchise.

The latest issue of the British magazine hits stands today, and it profiles the up coming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film. One of the still run with the article, features the Red Son-ish Batman from the dream sequence looking over a barren piece of land abutting a ramshackle metropolitan city. Why is the city in near-ruins? Well, that omega symbol burnt into the ground gives us a pretty big hint.

Batman v superman empire darkseid from comicsAs any savvy comic fan could tell you, the Greek letter omega is the symbol for Darkseid, the biggest, baddest villain of the DC Comics universe.  You can see the symbol in his chest piece to the left.

Darkseid has long been rumored to be the major bad guy who brings all the other heroes together to fight in the Justice League film. Logically, he is the only powerful enough to give a team with Superman and Green Lantern a run for their money. So, in essence, this tease is just confirming what we already knew.

But I wouldn’t put any money on seeing Darkseid in his stone-like flesh in the already overcrowded movie. Odds are this sigil is the only thing we will be getting.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, 2016

Ghostbusters-header

Our first look official at Benedict Cumberbatch all kitted out as Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange was not the only thing that EW gifted us this post-Christmas week. They have also revealed a new picture from director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, featuring all four leads – Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones.

Additionally, they gave us some new information on the spectral badguys that the quartet will be facing off against –

Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s under­belly past have returned to roost among the living in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.

Previously we were told that actor Neil Casey was going to be the film’s villain, but we still don’t know if that means he is the leader of these spectral nuisances or a more flesh and blood adversary in the vein of the original film’s Walter Peck character played by the sublimely evil William Atherton.

Ghostbusters opens July 15.

Doctor-Strange-Logo

Marvel has just given us a late Christmas present via EW – our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in full costume as Doctor Strange.

According to the magazine, which hits stands Tuesday, this photo is the first time that the actor has actually worn the costume for Marvels’ Sorcerer Supreme. The film is still in production and had not yet gottento the scenes requiring the full outfit when the picture was taken. In the accompanying article, Cumberbatch reveals that he is very aware that he is under scrutiny from fans, and he takes that seriously.

I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.

Tuesday’s issue should also reveal more about the roles Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelsen are playing in the film, including, presumably, their character’s names.

On first blush, I have to say that I like the design, especially the layered use of fabrics. It is a nice change from the armored look of all the other Marvel cinematic superheroes.

Doctor Strange hits theaters on November 4, 2016.

Huntsman Winters War

For decades, Disney has pretty much had the market cornered in bringing fairy tales to the big screen. But 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman challenged that dominance and managed to make over $400 million in the process. Naturally, the studio wants to see if they can widen the chink that they already put into Disney’s armor with next summer’s Snow White spinoff, The Huntsman Winter’s War and today, the studio released our first look at the upcoming film.

First off all, Snow White stars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron return to their roles of Eric The Huntsman and the evil Queen Ravenna respectively, being joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain. Theron and Chastain released posters of their respective characters on twitter today and the film’s official twitter account released all four a few moments later. You can see them, as well as larger versions of the poster, below. And while ice queens have long been a fairy tale trope, it is hard not get a bit of a Frozen vibe off of the picture of Emily Blunt as Freya the Ice Queen.

As to how all of this will play, Universal has also released the following plot synopsis –

The fantastical world of Snow White and the Huntsman expands to reveal how the fates of The Huntsman Eric and Queen Ravenna are deeply and dangerously intertwined. Chris Hemsworth and Oscar® winner Charlize Theron return to their roles in The Huntsman Winter’s War, an epic action-adventure in which they are joined by Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain, as well as director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan. Producer Joe Roth (Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland) once again leads the team in a breathtaking new tale nested in the legendary saga.

Long before the evil Queen Ravenna (Theron) was thought vanquished by Snow White’s blade, she watched silently as her sister, Freya (Blunt), suffered a heartbreaking betrayal and fled their kingdom. With Freya’s ability to freeze any enemy, the young ice queen has spent decades in a remote wintry palace raising a legion of deadly huntsmen—including Eric (Hemsworth) and warrior Sara (Chastain)—only to find that her prized two defied her one demand: Forever harden your hearts to love

When Freya learns of her sister’s demise, she summons her remaining soldiers to bring the Magic Mirror home to the only sorceress left who can harness its power. But once she discovers Ravenna can be resurrected from its golden depths, the wicked sisters threaten this enchanted land with twice the darkest force it’s ever seen. Now, their amassing army shall prove undefeatable… unless the banished huntsmen who broke their queen’s cardinal rule can fight their way back to one another.

As promised in Theron’s tweet, we’ll get to see how all of this looks in action when the film’s first trailer debut’s on Wednesday.

The Huntsman Winter’s War is scheduled for theaters on April 22, 2016.
