Image Comics has announced that writer and artist Sloane Leong (From Under Mountains) is set to launch the new bio-punk sci-fi adventure Prism Stalker this coming March.

The eye of opportunity is closing. Vep is a young refugee, raised away from her devastated home planet as an indentured citizen in a foreign colony.

The answer appears faster than she is ready for.

“Prism Stalker is a story that I’ve carried close to my heart for a long time,” said Leong. “It’s changed over time, as I have, and has become something that’s given back to me, nurtured, surprised, and challenged me in different forms.  In her 2014 National Book Award speech, »

Ridley Scott says Alien sequels will “drift away from the alien stuff”

5 hours ago

After taking the franchise back to its xenomorph roots with Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott has now revealed to Entertainment Weekly that – as he attempted to do with Prometheus, to mixed results – that his planned sequels will “drift away from the alien stuff.”

“We are [going to make another], we are,” said Scott, who had originally said that he intended to make four more Alien movies after Covenant, before the most recent instalment underwhelmed at the box office. “I think what we have to do is gradually drift away from the alien stuff. People say, ‘You need more alien, you need more face pulling, need more chest bursting,’ so I put a lot of that in Covenant and it fitted nicely. But I think if you go again you need to start finding another solution that’s more interesting. I think AI is becoming much more dangerous and therefore more interesting.”

Creed 2 announces new director as Sylvester Stallone steps aside

5 hours ago

While he’ll reprise his role as the legendary Italian Stallion, Sylvester Stallone will not return to the Rocky franchise as director on the upcoming Creed 2.

In a statement revealed by Entertainment Weekly, Stallone announce that the new ringmaster would be Steven Caple Jr., who will direct from a script co-written by Sly and Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker. The statement read:-

“The character of Adonis Creed reflects this generation and its challenges. I believe it’s important for the director to also be a part of this generation like I was in mine, to make the story as relatable as possible. We are extremely lucky to have the talented young filmmaker Steven Caple Jr. step up and accept the role of director. I am confident that he and Michael B. Jordan will hit it out of the park!”

Adonis Creed himself, Michael B. Jordan, also enthused about the decision via his Twitter account. »

The Golden Globes are absolutely useless in predicting Oscars success

6 hours ago

Tom Beasley argues that the Golden Globes do not deserve their position as a major awards ceremony and Oscars precursor…

The film world briefly lit up with awards excitement earlier today with the announcement of the nominations for the 2018 Golden Globes. It was Guillermo del Toro’s warm and wildly enjoyable fantasy romance The Shape of Water that led the field, with seven nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Also featured prominently were Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan’s war thriller Dunkirk and gay romance Call Me By Your Name. It was a less exciting day for those behind The Florida Project, which was shut out in all of the major categories, with the exception of Willem Dafoe for Best Supporting Actor.

The eyebrow-raiser, though, was the appearance of Jordan Peele’s potent horror satire Get Out, which popped up in several of the comedy categories, including »

Update: Marvel wants Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine for McU appearance, Jackman says “the ship has sailed”

12 hours ago

While the chances of Marvel Studios ever getting its hands on the X-Men appeared to look very slim in the wake of Fox’s ongoing success with the franchise, it now appears to be a very real possibility, with Disney said to be closing in on a deal to purchase 20th Century Fox’s movie assets.

Of course, this opens up the door for Marvel Studios to bring the X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if -and it’s a big if – Aint It Cool News is to be believed, Disney and Marvel are keen on having Hugh Jackman reprise his role as Wolverine.

Now, while the rumour is certainly sketchy (if I was a betting man, I’d say it was pure speculation), it would certainly be a huge box office draw to see Jackman’s Wolverine alongside the Avengers, and the actor has »

New DC Films release slate reveals Green Lantern Corps and Justice League Dark plans are still intact

13 hours ago

When Warner Bros. announced that they were restructuring the Dceu, it got fans thinking about which of its forthcoming slate of films would fall victim to Justice League’s poor performance. Well, worry no more if you’re a fan of Batgirl or Green Lantern Corps, because fans have laid eyes their eyes on the list during this weekend’s Brazil Comic-Con, and here it is:

Wonder Woman II Aquaman Flashpoint Justice League Dark Suicide Squad 2 Shazam Batgirl Green Lantern Corps The Batman

What leaps out at you immediately are the Justice League ramifications; there is no sequel listed, the Cyborg movie, which was pencilled in for a 2020 release date, now appears to be on the scrapheap, and all-of-sudden Justice League Dark is back on the radar, only a matter of days after Guillermo del Toro revealed he wouldn’t be returning to the project.

Wrestling Daily News Roundup – 205 Live Star Arrested and Suspended by the WWE, Triple H Defeats Jinder Mahal in India, Neville Update

16 hours ago

Liam Hoofe with a round-up of the latest wrestling news… 

Rich Swann Arrested for Kidnapping and Battery

WWE 205 Live superstar Rich Swann was arrested in Gainesville, Florida this Sunday morning and charged with kidnapping/false imprisonment and battery.

Later yesterday afternoon, Gainesville police released their report, claiming that the victim of the incident was Rich Swann’s wife, and fellow wrestler, Su Yung. The pair have been together for 6 years and have been married for 9 months.

WWE has responded to the incident by suspending Rich Swann from the company. Swann was scheduled to face Drew Gulak this Monday night on WWE Raw to determine the new number 1 contender for the Cruiserweight Title. It seems unlikely the company will just hand Gulak the victory, so expect to see a replacement opponent brought in for the bout.
