  3. Comics on Film: Taking Another Crack at the X-Men's Phoenix
    As the longest-running single superhero movie series in the modern era of the genre that's gone without a full-on reboot, the X-Men film series is one of the strangest narrative beasts in current movie theaters. From 2000-2012, every X-Men movie released in that period of time shared a single continuity that, at times, didn't seem like it concerned itself with much. Next November, the series is set to make a return in the form of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, a film that acts as a direct sequel to the events of last year's X-Men: Apocalypse. The title likely holds a special meaning for comic book fans, signifying that the film will be taking a crack at the timeless and beloved story, "The Dark Phoenix Saga," written by Chris Claremont...

  7. Sequel Buzz: Zack Snyder Moves On From 'Justice League,' Sylvester Stallone Shares 'Escape Plan 3' Update
    Will Zack Snyder direct Justice League 2? Zack Snyder is back from his work hiatus with a new short film, but he says he's not returning to Justice League following his personal departure earlier this year. "I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job," he told Wired, "but I’ve kind of just let them do their thing." It's unclear if he'll be involved with the DCEU going forward, however. Many are speculating that he'll remain as a relatively hands off executive producer but won't direct Justice League 2 or Man of Steel 2 or any other future...

  9. 'Star Wars' Buzz: See Ron Howard's Han Solo Images
    Back in June, we heard that there had been a changing of the guard in the world of new Star Wars movies. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left the Han Solo spin-off movie and were replaced by Ron Howard. Actor turned filmmaker Howard directed his first movie, Grand Theft Auto, 40 years ago and he's helmed more than three dozen titles since then. Even though he's a member of an older generation than Lord and Miller, Howard has been quite adept at using social media to keep his fans apprised of his current productions for some time now. After he started his latest job, Howard shared a photo of young Chewbacca, teased the Galactic Empire and shared on-set photos of actors Donald Glover and Paul Bettany. Frankly, however, that's only the tip of the...
