Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy

Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy
Universal Pictures will finally get their wish with a shared universe for their iconic monsters and it all kicks off this summer.   It's been a long time coming and quite a few false dawns, but Universal Pictures will finally get their wish. This summer will see the launch of their very own "monster-verse" with the release of The Mummy. Briging all the Universal monsters together in a shared universe has often been seen as a mission impossible, so surely if anyone was going to lead a successful charge for Universal it would be Tom Cruise.  Cruise will play Nick Morton and will be a pivotal character in the universe moving forward. The story is set in the present day, a departure from the traditional period setting for most Mummy iterations.                     The Mummy will also introduce audiences to Dr.Jekyll played by...

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action
DC Comic's new animated series 'Justice League Action' premiered in the U.S. this Friday, December 16th on Cartoon Network. This is the newest successor to the Justice League TV franchise, the last one being 2006's 'Justice League Unlimited'.

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director
Warner Bros look for their third Director for the Scarlet Speedster. Rick Famuyiwa has left Warner Bros. looking for their third Director for the upcoming Flash movie. Citing creative differences, Famuyiwa released this statement:    "When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humour and heart. While it's disappointing that we couldn't come together creatively on this project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for oppportunities to tell stories that speak to fresh generational, topical and multi-cultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros. DC, Jon Berg,...

With the eagerly anticipated introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in next year's Homecoming, Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with Spider-Man. When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War earlier this year, it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and long before him Nicolas Hammond, were all mid to late twenties when they were web spinning so most of fandom were happy that Spider-Man was truly returning to his roots with a physical depiction of Spider-Man more true to the original form created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. So how does the Maguire Spider-Man now fit into the cinematic mythos? In terms of continuity, it doesn't exist as Marvel only recently reached an agreement with Sony to take creative control of...
