Tom Hardy Is Sony’s Venom

Xben3000 here with some interesting movie news today! Sony has announced that Tom Hardy has been cast to play Eddie Brock (Venom) in the upcoming Venom film that is being produced for Sony’s Marvel Universe. We also know that the film will be released October 5, 2018 with production starting this fall. I honestly was not expecting any casting news anytime soon with this film, but it seems Sony is dead set on making this a reality.

 

I mean props to them, but Venom is not my favorite Spider-Man villain. I’m interested in seeing how they go about doing this film. I am guessing we will see things from Eddie’s perspective, but will this lead to him fighting Spider-Man at the end of the film, or would it be something else. With this film not being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will people be less inclined to check it out?

Like always let us know what you think. I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!

Marvel Announces Mace Windu Comic Mini-Series

Marvel provided a short synopsis for the miniseries.

For over a thousand generations, the Jedi have been the peacekeepers of the galaxy…but now, at the dawn of the Clone Wars, they find themselves in a new role: generals in the Army of the Republic. As Mace Windu, one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors, leads a small unit of Jedi into battle shortly after the war begins, the Jedi must make peace with their new role, or be lost to the violence around them!

Black Lightning Trailer

We have the first trailer for the upcoming Black Lightning series. I have to say that I’m excited for this new series to drop. Going by Entertainment Weekly, this series will not be in the Arrow-verse. To quote the article from EW.

CW chief Mark Pedowitz revealed to reporters on Thursday morning ahead of the network’s upfront presentation that Black Lightning does not take place in the Arrowverse — the same shared universe that the other four series call home. Couple that with the fact that Black Lightning films in Atlanta, while the rest of the shows film in Vancouver, and it’s basically a logistical nightmare. Black Lightning is also slated to debut in midseason, not in the fall.

“We do not aim to do a five-way crossover,” Pedowitz said. “Black Lightning, at this time, is not part of the Arrowverse. It is a separate situation. But there will be a big fourth quarter crossover with all four of the shows that are on in the fall.”

I have to say that I’m happy the series is not in this universe. I want to see this series stand on its own two feet instead of having to be in an already established universe. It also opens up that we could get characters like Blue Devil or even their own version of Green Arrow if they choose too. Anyway, check out the trailer and let us know what you think. I’m still XBen3000 and I’m out!

Movie News: X-Men New Mutants Cast Magik & Wolfsbane

Coming at you with some casting news for the upcoming X-Men New Mutants film. We have Anya Taylor Joy who will be playing Magik. Magik has been described as the following

“A girl who has learned sorcery and uses teleportation discs to travel. She is also the sister of Colossus, an X-Man who appeared in Deadpool.”

Meanwhile Maisie Williams will be playing Wolfsbane. Wolfsbane has been described as the following.

“A girl struggling to reconcile her religious beliefs with her power to turn into a wolf.”

Here’s some other information we’ve learned from The Hollywood Reporter article.

“The pic will focus on the angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock.”

For those worried that Danielle Moonstar and Sunspot won’t be their ethnicity, THR article stating this news added the following.

Fox is making serious efforts to find ethnically appropriate actors, conducting wide searches for a Native American to play Moonstar and a South American for Sunspot.

So as a fan of these characters I’m proud to see that Fox is making an effort to cast actual Native and South American actors for these roles. Finally, the film is set to release April 13, 2018. Like always sound off down below with your thoughts. Do you have any actors you want to see play this group of X-Men? Until next time, I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
