Today was a big day for fans of the Marvel cinematic universe. Not only did production [finally] begin on the Paul Rudd led, Edgar Wright-less Ant-Man, but the studio comic fans believe can do no wrong also announced a slew of big time cast additions.

According to a press release distributed several hours after the initial announcement regarding the start of Ant-Man‘s production, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery have also joined the cast of the upcoming Peyton Reed directed film.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia Is Headed To Prison…For Netflix

Comedian Mike Birbiglia has signed on to join the cast of Orange Is The New Black for the program’s upcoming third season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Birbiglia’s role has to be revealed, but considering the fact the show revolves around a women’s prison it’s fairly safe to assume he’ll either be cast as a prison guard, family member of an inmate, or lover/ex-lover of an inmate.

Birbiglia never set out to become a film and TV star, but since the release of his critically acclaimed film Sleepwalk With Me the offers have not stopped pouring in. You may …

Get Wet: Aquaman Will Have His Own Film

There were rumors that surfaced near the end of 2013 that claimed Jason Mamoa had been approached by Warner Bros. about the possibility of portraying Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman. Those claims have since been accepted as truth, even though WB refuses to comment on the situation, and today we learned the studio that is placing a lot of money in the hands of DC Comics has decided to give Aquaman his very own film.

The Hollywood Reporter ran an exclusive late Tuesday night, August 12, that revealed to the world the fact Warner Bros. has hired …

Whitney Houston Will Not Be Singing In Her Own Lifetime Biopic

Hollywood is a funny place sometimes. You may be able to get the rights to tell someone’s life story, and you may even be able to pay the clearance rights to use that person’s songs, but that does not mean you will be able to use that artist’s original recordings in the project about their life’s story you plan to create. Makes perfect sense, right?

Lifetime has been developing an original film titled I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story for the better part of 2014, and all along it was assumed that the cable network would be …

Kate Mara Claims New ‘Fantastic Four’ Will Not Be Based On Existing Comic Book Mythology

The last set of Fantastic Four films were far from cinematic treasures, but they had their roots firmly planted in the world of comics. Considering the fact we now live in a world flooded with comic-related films, one might think it a given that the new Fantastic Four franchise would do the same. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case.

Actress Kate Mara, who is currently set to play Sue Storm in director Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, recently revealed in an interview the new franchise may be unlike anything fans of the comic series have ever …

Quentin Tarantino’s highly-anticipated and sometimes cancelled Hateful Eight is currently alive and well. Production information has been kept under tight wraps, but one of the film’s long-rumored stars seems to have essentially confirmed Tarantino’s plans to bring his latest Western to life.

This week, Kurt Russell teased connection to Quentin Tarantino’s Hateful Eight while talking about future projects with Philadelphia’s Fox 59. He was doing an interview about The Battered Bastards of Baseball (out now on Netflix), when he dropped the following tidbit of previously unreleased information:

“I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like

Guillermo del Toro Talks ‘Hellboy 3′ And Whether Or Not It Will Ever Happen

This is a bit of hard post for me to write, dear readers. I have loved the character of Hellboy long before he was brought to the big screen in 2004, but to this day I stand by the cinematic franchise as one of the best comic adaptations of all time. Sadly, it seems like the rest of the world does not agree.

Recently, Guillermo del Toro was amidst a big promotional campaign for The Strain when he decided to spend an afternoon answering fans’ questions via Reddit. During his AMA, del Toro was asked about the fate of Hellboy

10 Questions We Have About ‘Apes 3′ After Watching ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes just wrapped its first weekend of release here in the United States, and based on its $73 million dollar haul at the box office I think it’s safe to say a third film in the modern Apes franchise is not far from being a reality. It has long been rumored that a trilogy was the plan from day one, but as Hollywood has suffered a few misfire franchise launches in recent years (Mortal Instruments, Beautiful Creatures) executives have become a bit more hesitant to guarantee anything until they see a return …
