Earlier this year, former U.S. president Bill Clinton simultaneously shocked and intrigued the world with the news that he’d be co-penning a novel with best-selling author James Patterson, entitled The President is Missing, and now, the pair’s big plans for the thriller are starting to take shape.

David Nevins, president and CEO of Showtime, announced today that the network has acquired the rights to the upcoming novel and is looking to develop it into a TV series. Clinton and Patterson pitched it during a 16-meeting tour in Los Angeles and helped secure the Showtime deal with the help of the 42nd president’s longtime friend and CBS CEO, Les Moonves. Moonves’ network currently houses TV adaptations of two of Patterson’s books, Zoo and Instinct; the author inked a first-look deal with the network a few years back. Read a summary of the book below…

8 hours ago

Despite the fact we’ve had an official poster and trailer in the past couple of weeks, Netflix continues to keep the release date for its next Marvel series The Punisher tightly under wraps. However, it seems Total Film may not have got the memo, as the latest edition of its magazine suggests that Frank Castle’s solo series will hit the streaming service on October 13th.

James Gunn confirms that Glenn Close was cut from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

8 hours ago

Despite being initially announced as reprising her role as Nova Prime for the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Glenn Close was absent from this year’s Vol. 2.

However filmmaker James Gunn has revealed during a fan Q&A that Close was originally set return as the head of the Nova Corps, and that “she had a cameo we didn’t use.”

Close’s Nova Prime is the second cameo to have been cut from the film after Nathan Fillion’s Simon Williams; sadly, neither of these appeared on the Blu-ray bonus features.

It is possible we’ll see the return of Glenn Close’s Nova Prime in Avengers: Infinity War, given that the Nova Corps are currently in possession of the Power Stone, which Thanos is going to need to complete his Infinity Gauntlet.

X-Men: The New Mutants is “a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers”

11 hours ago

Last week it was announced that production has wrapped on 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: The New Mutants, and now Fox’s Stacey Snider has been chatting to Variety about the Josh Boone-directed X-Men spinoff, describing it as “a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers”.

“If we’re going to make a superhero movie, we have to ask ourselves: ‘What’s our version? What’s a Fox Marvel film?'” said Snider. “When you look at films like Deadpool or Logan or the upcoming New Mutants, you’ll see they have their own personality. Great effort has been put into making sure they’re differentiated. New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club »

The Defenders is Netflix’s least-watched Marvel series in its first month

11 hours ago

After more than two years of build, Netflix brought its four street-level Marvel heroes together last month as the streaming service assembled Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage and Finn JonesIron Fist for The Defenders.

While Marvel and Netflix were surely hoping this would be their small screen version of The Avengers, the miniseries met with a mixed reception from fans and critics, and now comes word that it has failed to live up to the success of its predecessors in terms of viewership.

Unlike TV networks, Netflix doesn’t reveal exact viewing figures for its shows, but according to marketing analytics agency Jumpshot, The Defenders enjoyed just 17% of the viewership of Daredevil season 2 – Netflix’s best-performing Marvel season – in its first 30 days. For comparison, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones managed 28%, 27% and 26% respectively. The stats also show that The Defenders »

Frank Grillo claims that Marvel still has plans for Crossbones

11 hours ago

Despite his demise in Captain America: Civil War, it seems that Marvel may still have plans for Crossbones in the McU, with actor Frank Grillo teasing some “interesting” news about his character Brock Rumlow.

“I have three boys who are fanatical about Marvel, and I was surprised not too long ago because there is some news that nobody knows yet, to do with my character, that’s going to be really interesting and I’m excited about that,” Grillo told Forbes.

Assuming Rumlow didn’t survive the explosion in Civil War, we’d have to assume that the character would be appearing in some kind of flashback, perhaps even in the 90s-set Captain Marvel movie. Although with Avengers: Infinity War on the horizon and Thanos set to wield the power of the Infinity Gauntlet, anything is possible…
