Actor Who Played Colossus Wants Colossus to Fight Thanos

Stefan Kapicic, the star who plays as Colossus in the Deadpool movies was asked who he wanted to see Colossus fight next after fighting the Juggernaut. He has answered that he would love to see Colossus take on Thanos. This is an interesting statement because X-Men and Avengers are both Marvel characters. However, there are hurdles to seeing this happen. For one thing, Fox has the movie rights to these characters. The only way that this can be a possibility is when the deal is finalized between Fox and Disney. However, this is not expected for a while.

Another thing that is interesting is that there is a link between Deadpool and Avengers. This link is actor Josh Brolin who plays Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool. This link has enabled Deadpool to make the joke calling Cable Thanos. Another interesting thing that Deadpool and Avengers share is that both recent releases have been praised by audiences and critics. While Deadpool is not making nearly as much as Avengers partially because of the rating, they both have high levels of praises. Some of the early reviews have stated that Deadpool 2 was even better than Infinity War.

As of right now, there are talks about a Deadpool 3 and an X-Force movie. Also, depending on how the deal goes with Disney and Fox, the characters might start appearing in the MCU. The only thing is how it would work if this does happen. Disney and Fox would be a big thing for the MCU.

Andrew Lincoln Exits The Walking Dead

Fans of the AMC zombie series The Walking Dead will be shocked to hear that series star Andrew Lincoln has announced that he will no be part of the horror series following the show’s upcoming ninth season. Lincoln is only expected to appear in six episodes next season. The actor has been playing Rick Grimes, an ex-cop turned leader in a post-apocalypse America, since the show’s first season in 2010. While Lincoln has not said why he wants to quit the zombie series, speculation rests on the actor wanting to spend more time with his family. The Walking Dead films in Georgia while Lincoln’s family lives in the United Kingdom. Lincoln has also stated that he feels that Rick’s story arc is coming to an end, and he wants to see the character’s journey come to completion.

Lincoln is not the only actor who has been with the show for a long time to exit the series recently. Last season, Chandler Riggs, who plays Rick’s son Carl on the show, left after his character suffered a bite from a walker. Like Lincoln, Riggs had been with the show since it began in 2010. Additionally, it was recently announced that Lauren Cohan, who has played Maggie since the show’s second season, would also only appear in six episodes of the coming season.

While fans worry that Lincoln and Cohan’s exits will lead to the show’s end, AMC plans to continue the series despite the exit of two of its biggest stars. Part of the network’s plan to keep audiences interested in the series is to offer actor Norman Reedus, who has played Daryl Dixon on the show since season one, a larger paycheck to stay with the series. Rumors are that the show’s writers hope for Reedus to assume Lincoln’s position as leading actor on the series.

The Darker Side of Muppets Explored With Happytime Murders

When people think about muppets, they think about the characters that they have seen in shows like Sesame Street. However, there is a new movie coming out that is based on the concept of muppets. This is called Happytime Murders. This is a violent film filled with foul language and adult themes. One scene in the trailer shows a muppet getting blown away. This shows that the film is going to involve murder and other acts not expected in a show about muppets.

Melissa McCarthy has a lead role in Happytime Murders. The overall feel of the film is reminiscent of The Heat. In this movie, Melissa McCarthy plays the role of a detective who has to solve the case of the murders of the Happytime Gang cast. This seems pretty straight-forward. The trailers show enough footage for people to make an assessment of the kind of movie they expect to get. This could be reminiscent of some of the action comedies of an earlier era.

One thing that people make comparisons to is Who Framed Roger Rabbit. However, this film puts muppets in the place of the cartoon characters. This is also not the first time that human actors have interacted with muppets on the big screen. There are plenty of films that feature some of the muppets and characters similar to muppets. Either way, this could go one of two ways. This can actually be a good film, or this can turn out to be a mediocre movie going experience.

The star passed away in 2016. Sadly, his fans will never know how Alan Rickman felt about the Snape character outside of the media interviews he may have provided. The star, who worked extensively in stage and film productions, studied at the Royal College of Art. He garnered well over 80 movie and TV credits during his career.

Private Letters Spark Posthumous Online Chatter

Michael B. Jordan and Donald Glover Rumored for Black Panther 2

Given the success of Black Panther (and Avengers: Infinity War). There has been talk about the eventual sequel to the film. Among the rumors that are floating around is the casting of Donald Glover and Michael B. Jordan. While it is understandable why Ryan Coogler would cast Donald Glover, Michael B. Jordan would be an interesting choice for the sequel because his character, Killmonger has died in the first film. In Donald Glover’s case, he is not that much of a stranger to the MCU. He has appeared in Spider-Man Homecoming and made some contributions to the Black Panther film.

The rumors of Michael B. Jordan being included in the cast for Black Panther 2 brings about a lot of theories. One thing is that it takes away from the already debunked idea that Black Panther 2 would take place before the events of Infinity War. Another thing that this idea brings about is curiosity of what exactly might happen in the events of Avengers 4. One thing that has been suggested is that the events of Avengers 4 will lead to a new timeline. So it is likely that some of the events of Avengers 4 might lead to the resurrection of Killmonger among some other characters.

One thing that is important to understand is that this is currently a rumor. Nothing has been confirmed. At most, the creative team behind Black Panther 2 is considering the possibility of bringing in certain characters and bringing back others. Nothing has been finalized.

Paul Rudd Looked at For The Upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog Movie

There is a new Sonic the Hedgehog movie in the works. This one is going to be a live-action and CGI film featuring the blue blur character. As of right now, Paul Rudd is being looked at as a lead role. He is looked at for the role of the lead-cop who teams up with Sonic in order to take on Robotnik. Paul Rudd is known for his roles in the Judd-Apatow films and as Ant-Man.

Sonic is one of the most popular video game characters from Sega. There have been numerous games and plenty of productions in other media. There have been a lot of cartoons including the weekday cartoons and the Saturday morning cartoon. Even though these cartoons had nothing to do with each other, they shared the vocal talents of Jaleel White.

There has also been another movie made based on the video game character recently. It was a live-action CGI short that was released online. Among the actors that have featured in the film was Doug Walker. The budget was pretty low and the film was made for the internet and it shows. Given that this upcoming film is going to be released in theaters, it is very likely that the effects are going to be more refined. Therefore, Sonic and other characters are going to look more believable. The only thing that remains to be seen is the plot and the tone of the film. This may be the first video game movie that shows people that it is possible to make a good movie out of a game as simple as Sonic.

The Truth is (Still) Out There: A Spoiler Free Review of the Return of The X-Files

Cult Classic The X-Files returned to television for it’s eleventh season, on Fox, January third. This season is directly correspondent to 2016’s season ten cliff hanger ending. Recently, many X-philes have been despondent over Gillian Anderson, who plays Agent Scully on the series, announcing that this would more than likely be her last season with the show. This seemed to contradict show runner, and creator, Chris Carter’s hopes that this season would relaunch the series anew for subsequent seasons. Despite the future of the franchise however, the opening episode of season eleven garnered some high viewer numbers, and assured Fox and Ten Thirteen productions that the world was still waiting for the final truth.

My Struggle III, the first episode of season eleven, continues the story weaved throughout season ten’s ‘mythology’ episodes, and picks up with the narrative of Fox Mulder, Dana Scully, and, most prevalent throughout the episode, The Cigarette Smoking Man. My Struggle III takes a deep focus on the character which William B. Davis portrays, and bears heavy resemblance to the seventh episode of season four, Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man, going so far as to reveal information on the character that had yet to be brought to the light in the twenty year old series.

Ultimately though, My Struggle III, plays like an action noir, which isn’t a bad thing in the least, but my be jarring to some long time fans that are expecting the mysterious fog of season four. The dialogue is fast paced, and you can feel the tension winding up after following up last season’s incredible mid-scene cut ending. My Struggle III will ultimately be continued in the season’s final episode, and in the meantime, we’ll get what will undoubtedly be some great episodes from long time X-files writing favorites Glen and Darin Morgan. For an indepth look at this season, and the overall arch of The X-Files, check out Chris Carter’s interview with Collider at http://collider.com/the-x-files-season-11-chris-carter-interview/.

“Creed” Writer Working on “Black Panther” Digital Comic

One of the co-writers of the movie Creed is taking his stab at writing the Black Panther comic, while his former colleague works on the character’s solo film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Creed, a spin-off of the Rocky movies starring the son of Apollo Creed as he is trained by his father’s old boxing frenemy Rocky Balboa, was co-written by Ryan Coogler and Aaron Covington. While the former is now working as the director on the Black Panther movie, his former partner is getting to write two issues of one of the character’s comic books. Covington is not involved in making the film, however.

The comic in question is Black Panther: Long Live the King, which is a digital-only limited series made in conjunction with the website Comixology. It is set in a separate continuity from either the main run of Marvel Comics or the MCU, though it shares many aspects of both universes. Covington will write issues #3 and #4 with Mario DelPennio doing art; the first two issues were done Nnedi Okorafor and Andre Lima Araujo, who will also write the final two issues afterwards.

The Covington/DelPennio arc will reportedly feature Black Panther, real name T’Challa, both as the teenage prince of Wakanda and later as its adult king, when he has taken the Black Panther mantle along with the crown. He will have to deal with a monster tearing through the country and efforts to rebuild the country after some sort of political upheaval.

The first issue of their run on Black Panther: Long Live the King will be available on Comixology on Wednesday, January 10, 2018. The Black Panther film is set for release February 16.

Spawn to Finally Get a Reboot

Spawn is one of the comic book franchises that were casualties of an earlier era of Hollywood when it just did not know how to handle adaptations. One of the issues with Hollywood is that it has given the projects to people who were not fans of the comic franchise. As a result of that and other issues, the films have turned out to be an insult to fans of the original source material. Fortunately, there has come to be an era where comic book movies are consistently good. They are also among the most popular franchises as of now.

One of the comic book movies that are being planned is a reboot to Spawn. Todd McFarlane is going to go in a different direction for this film. He is going to treat Spawn as not only a bit player, but also the antagonist even though he is a protagonist in the comic book. The 1997 film also depicted Spawn as the protagonist. However, the characters were handled in a way that did not give justice to the source material. The Spawn comic books were gruesome and gory. One of the biggest mistakes in the film was that it was shot for a PG-13 rating.

There was also an animated HBO series that was more true to the gruesome nature of the comics. There were a ton of scenes that were very disturbing to watch in the animated version. The story also featured quite a few characters that were left out of the live action movie version. Given that the reboot is going to focus more on the humans trying to catch the resurrected character, it is very likely that more of the human characters are going to be featured such as the two detectives that have been trying to catch the character.

Pushing Unnecessary Romances in Star Wars

There have been a lot of talk about the direction of the story in the Star Wars Saga. One of the topics being discussed currently is a possible relationship between Poe and Rey. This can be even more unexpected than a relationship between Finn and Rey. One thing that can get in the way of a romance is the possibility that it is shoehorned into a film. Daisy Ridley has stated that she is not very thrilled about the idea of any type of romance for Rey in Star Wars IX, which is going to be the closing film of the trilogy. Fans are already disappointed with the trilogy so far.

The first film in the sequel trilogy was seen as more of a remake of A New Hope. The Last Jedi was filled with so many twists and turns that it seemed like the theater was playing five different movies. To make things even more disappointing, behind all of the twists and turns was just a remake of The Empire Strikes Back with a little bit of Return of the Jedi being thrown. However, the director of The Last Jedi is considering coming back for a new trilogy in the Star Wars franchise.

There are plenty of possibilities in the Star Wars franchise when it comes to romance. Finn is likely to have someone that he is in a relationship with, and it is not likely to be Poe.

As of what is coming up next, it is likely that the next Star Wars is going to be directed by JJ Abrams who has directed The Force Awakens. There is no telling where they are going to go with the IX one. There have been plenty of twists in the story that has resulted in many disappointments when it comes to characters.
