So who got death threats yesterday? Oh that’s right, Nick Spencer, for writing a Captain America comic book that they didn’t like (though with art from Jesus Saiz, how could they not??)

I can’t respond to 9000 tweets per second, but if I could, I would say I admire your passion

9:44 AM – 25 May 2016

It’s at this point that I’d like to reiterate that Captain America is a fictional character. Marvel Comics is invested in Captain America. Wherever the story will end up, Steve Rogers will probably not actually be a Nazi. And no matter how much you don’t like his story (especially if you didn’t actually read the thing) sending him a death threat on social media is even less like Captain America isn’t it?

X-FORCE Already In The Works: Will Likely Feature ‘X-23’ As The New WOLVERINE

Thanks to the roaring success of Deadpool, we know Cable will soon make his debut in the highly anticipated sequel, which means the long-rumored X-Force film can’t be too far off and according to Fandango, it’s actually a lot further along in its development process than we initially thought as in the script is being penned as we speak. Plus, if that wasn’t enough, it sounds like the next iteration of Wolverine will almost definitely be an integral part of the team.

A few weeks back, we caught word that James Mangold‘s Wolverine 3, which will (presumably) be Hugh Jackman‘s final adventure as the fan-favorite hero, might be looking to introduce his clone, X-23, to the X-Men films universe as a potential replacement to take on the mantle of Wolverine in future X-Men films. 20th Century Fox neither confirmed or denied the report, so Fandango decided to take it upon themselves to clear up the matter with X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer.

While speaking with him at the X-Men: Apocalypse press junket in London, they learned that not only had Singer pitched an X-Force movie to the studio, he had already pitched the idea of a female Wolverine as well: “I have discussed that with the studio, I actually initially pitched the X-Force and the female.” Singer didn’t reveal much more about the new Wolverine, not even whether we would first see her in the Wolverine 3 or in the X-Force, but he did confirm that work on an X-Force script is currently underway: “Simon [Kinberg] is in the earliest script stage, so that’s kind of where that stands, and we’ll see how it evolves.” Singer added that his involvement at this time is strictly on the idea level.

On another positively exciting note, with the burgeoning success of Deadpool and the development of more unique X-Men spin-offs like Josh Boone‘s New Mutants and the X-Force, Singer teased that he absolutely envisions a scenario in the relatively distant future where we could see all of these properties unite with the X-Men on the big screen for a massive event picture. However, before everyone gets ahead of themselves, he assures fans, he has no plans on rushing it: “It has to be done right, Anytime you throw all these characters together to hit a start date, it can make a lot of money, but it can also be a clusterf**k. To me, it has to be done with a lot of care. These things can get overwhelming, and if a character doesn’t belong in a movie, don’t use him. If the tone can still maintain itself, I’m all for it. What I’m not for is throwing a bunch of characters together and hoping it works.” Sounds like the right way to do it, and would be a great opportunity to use Galactus as a common extinction-level threat.

As for Singer’s future with the long-running franchise, considering he’s been a producer on almost every single X-Men movie, save for the first, it’s a safe bet that he’ll be involved on some level moving forward. On the directing front, Singer doesn’t rule out possibly returning to helm the next X-Men sequel or even the aforementioned X-Force movie: “If I am the guy to produce or direct it, my input will grow. To where I’m either finding a director — like Matthew Vaughn, who did a magnificent job directing X-Men: First Class — or I’ll be on set myself, back in the same universe just trying to make a difference.” Luckily for him, he still has a ways to go before he has to make an official decision and for now, following the impending release of X-Men: Apocalypse, he can shift gears to his next project, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which kicks off production this fall.

So, what do you guys think? Excited for the future of the X-Men?

X-23

Mark Millar’s Empress Already Headed To The Screen

Mark Millar, author of the recently optioned comic books American Jesus and Supercrooks, has partnered up with producer Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum to bring Empress to movie theaters, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The comic book series, which debuted last month, focuses on the wife of a galactic dictator who chooses to flee from her husband. With bodyguard and three children in tow, she makes for her homeworld.

Millar’s comics continue to be popular in Hollywood. Besides Empress, American Jesus and Supercrooks, adaptations Nemesis, Huck, Chrononauts and Superior are also in development. Previous filmed adaptations include Wanted, Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service, which will see a sequel released next year.

4001 A.D. Starts This Week And We Have A Preview

Valiant is about to kick off their newest crossover event, 4001 A.D. with the first issue hitting stores on May 4th. The issue is written by Matt Kindt and drawn by Clayton Crain and David Mack and with covers by Crain, Tula Lotay, Ryan Bodenheim,Clayton Henry, Ryan Lee and Ryan Sook. Here is an extended preview for 4001 A.D.#1.

One hundred years from today, Father – the benevolent artificial intelligence that governs the island nation of Japan – will gain sentience. To defend its borders, Father will take drastic action by launching Japan into space…where its people will thrive in isolation, away from the overpopulated and resource-deprived planet below. Over the centuries, as New Japan orbits our increasingly unstable world, it will become a model society – one built on peace, prosperity… and Father’s control.

A thousand years from today, Father will create the first Rai, founding a lineage of technologically enhanced heroes engineered to defend New Japan and sworn to protect it from all enemies. For hundreds of years into the future, the Rai will single-handedly enforce New Japan’s justice well…and serve Father without question.

Now, at the dawn of 4001 A.D., the latest Rai is about to inherit the dark truth behind the origin of his kind…and discover the sinister secret at the heart of Father’s existence. For New Japan to live, Earth must die…and as Rai challenges his former master for the first time in more than a millennium, the lone guardian of New Japan will be cast out of his own Father’s kingdom…

Exiled from the only realm he’s ever known, Rai now walks the ravaged world of 4001 A.D. in search of forgotten heroes like himself… on a mission to collect the last surviving legends of a broken planet…and to forge a rebellion with the power to bring the most advanced civilization in history crashing back down to Earth.

RUMOR: AQUAMAN Director James Wan May Be Next In Line To Depart The DC Films Universe

RUMOR: AQUAMAN Director James Wan May Be Next In Line To Depart The DC Films Universe

RUMOR: AQUAMAN Director James Wan May Be Next In Line To Depart The DC Films Universe

Is the DC Films Universe facing a Crisis? According to a new report, there’s an awful lot of chaos behind the scenes of Justice League, while James Wan could be about to move on from directing Aquaman.

Birth. Movies. Death have weighed in on Seth Grahame-Smith’s decision to depart The Flash, and it sounds like a lot of big changes are currently happening behind the scenes at Warner Bros. in regards to their DC Comics adaptations. According to the site, they’re now “at odds” with Zack Snyder over Justice League, and there has been, “Lots of fights between Snyder and the WB execs, and lots of pressure from Burbank on Snyder, who is shooting in London.” Of course, seeing as that movie started shooting just weeks after the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, not many changes could be made at that stage, hence why there are now a lot of clashes as the studio looks to ensure they don’t end up with another critical and commercial (to a lesser extent) disappointment.

However, particularly interesting is the news that Aquaman director James Wan could be the next filmmaker to part ways with the studio over “creative differences.” According to the site, their sources tell them that “Wan is feeling a tremendous amount of trepidation about Aquaman…Aquaman needs Wan, and right now Wan is trying to decide if he needs that hassle.” It’s also mentioned that the movie could be delayed to iron out any kinks, but with Wan frequently commenting on his plans for the character, it would be genuinely shocking if he were to quit now. This is strictly a rumour for the time being anyway, but be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the comments section below.
