A standard denial might have been a more orthodox response to the news that Henry Cavill is – reportedly – quitting the role of Superman.
Disney's Oscar campaign for Marvel movie Black Panther is officially taking aim at the biggest prize of the night – Best Movie.
Black Panther is back on the prowl. After a blockbuster introduction in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s landmark superhero, played by Chadwick Boseman, is ready to front his own feature — and, based on the new teaser trailer (watch it above), he’s going to have his clawed hands full trying to keep the peace in his homeland of Wakanda while battling the likes of Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), M’Baku/Man-Ape (Winston Duke), and Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) — villains ripped from the pages of the Panther comics. The 1-minute, 52-second clip, which premiered Friday night during Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, gives us our initial action-packed look at Black Panther, which arrives in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
Michael B. Jordan, the star of the boxing hit Creed, is reteaming with MGM for a remake of heist thriller The Thomas Crown Affair. Crown was initially a 1968 movie directed by Norman Jewison and starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. McQueen played a wealthy businessman who conducted robberies on the side.
Sylvester Stallone will forever be associated with perennial underdog Rocky Balboa, a storyline that is seeing new life in the form of Ryan Coogler’s Creed. But long before Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed, there was Carl Weathers’s portrayal of Balboa’s antagonist: Apollo Creed. Surprisingly, Weathers was not the first choice for the role, as Stallone told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show.
