And so the Amazing Spider-Man 2 falls victim to the villain curse. Should have known better than to stuff the films full of villains. It's like the writers learned nothing from Spider-Man 3.

@takashichea: If we're talking about live action movies where the colored act is the main character, I can think of a couple where a black person was given the role. I can't say the same about asian people though since I'm drawing a blank when I try to come up with some. Also, as you can guess, most minorities are given supporting cast roles or they are cast as the villains.

And just like the movies with women as leads, they don't score very high on the rottentomatometer.

  • Steel - This stars basketball star Shaquille O'Neal.
  • Blade Franchise - Three movies with a black person as the lead. That's quite the accomplishment. It's too bad we don't get to see more of this.
  • Hancock - This one has Will Smith of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fame.
  • Catwoman - I wouldn't see this movie. It's really terrible.
  • Blankman - This one is more of a comedy rather than an action movie. Think Adam West's Batman.

@katmic: I'm going to have to disagree with you on Wonder Woman. While whether she remains necessary to the plot or not remains to be seen (we have to see the movie first), I would argue that including Wonder Woman is a good thing by itself. If you look an entire list of superhero movies ever made, you will find that the number of good live action movies where the female is the lead character is rather anemic. The closest ones we do to a good female superhero movie are movies like Tank Girl and Supergirl. Both of which are not very good. So, if this movie leads to a good live action Wonder Woman movie, then I can't be too mad at them for including her.

Dragon Ball Z » Was Dragon Ball Z trying to replace Goku ?

At one point, the series was supposed to end with the Cell Saga. Goku was supposed to be dead and Gohan would have taken over as the protector of the Earth. However, fans wanted Goku back since they were so attached to him and he was brought back.

And did it succeed ?

You answered your own questions when you said "but were forced to return their focus on Goku."

@takashichea: @ElHa:


Ever since the casting of Cyborg and Wonder Woman for the new Batman Vs Superman we knew that it was only going to be a matter of time before they announced a Justice League movie. Now, without further ado, finally we have official confirmation on the Justice League movie. And not only that, we are also told that Zack Synder will be directing the movie. Hurray for everyone who liked 300 and Manf of Steel because you are going to see more of that going around.

In addition, Mr. Silverman and Toby Emmerich, president of Warner’s New Line Cinema label has also announced that they are making other DC properties for the big screen:"Shazam," "Metal Man," "100 Bullets," and "Fables."

Time Warner has said that they have no plans for a Wonder Woman solo movie. However, they are "warmed" to the idea.

“That is our hope,” said Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”

And so the superhero TV show wars have begun...

Recently, Fox has announced that they are considering a live action X-Men TV. And with this announcement, it appears that network television is shifting its gears from procedural crime shows like Criminal Minds to superheroes. In the last few months, we are seeing more and more marvel and DC properties getting a TV show.

Current and Confirmed Upcoming Series

CWFOXNetflixABC
ArrowGothamDaredevil seriesAgents of SHIELD
The FlashIron Fist and Luke Cage seriesJessica Jones series
Agent Carter series
The Defenders mini-series

And to think that 10 years ago, the only live action superhero movie was Smallville.

I got some exciting news for Supernatural fans! Next week, Sam and Dean will meet the main characters of the possible Supernatural spin-off: "Supernatural: Bloodlines." And if enough people watch it, the spin-off will be official. And considering that Supernatural brings in the most ratings in the CW line up, this feat probably won't be that difficult.

Supernatural takes a detour to Chicago next week to meet the cast of its possible new spinoff, Supernatural: Bloodlines. Sam and Dean head to the Windy City to investigate a case and discover that parts of Chicago are being run by monster families, a la the Corleones. In fact, Dean calls out the parallel in the teaser for the episode. As he puts it, "What is this? Godfather with fangs?" He's an eloquent one.
The episode serves as a backdoor pilot for the potential spinoff. We'll meet several characters who would be the focus of the series, as the Winchesters try to show Ennis Roth (Lucien Laviscount) the dangers of being a hunter - but, like Sam and Dean, he's stubborn. Check out the photo gallery below to see a peek of the danger ahead. -IGN

And we also got pictures. wooo!~

The Casual Vacancy

Wow. J.K. Rowling is busy these days. Not only she is making a Harry Potter spin-off, but she's also teaming up with HBO and BBC to make a adaptation of "The Casual Vacancy (one of her more recent books). I like HBO and I like BBC. So, I can't wait to see how it will turn out.

Production had already been announced by the BBC, with plans to air on BBC One. The HBO agreement means it will air in the U.S. as well. Rowling herself will executive produce through her production company Bronte Film and Television, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sarah Phelps (EastEnders) will adapt the book into a miniseries, and Jonny Campbell (Alien Autopsy) will direct. Production is set to begin this summer in England.
The Casual Vacancy revolves around a seemingly idyllic town with factionalized tensions boiling just under the surface. It was released in 2012 and has sold six million copies worldwide. -IGN

Jurassic World

The people behind Jurassic World just released some new photos of the new movie. I hope this turns out well too. Jurassic Park was my childhood.

@katmic: While there are a significant amount of bad found footage films, I think the genre has quite a bit potential. When done right, it can really sell immersion and suck you right into the movie by putting you in the action. The Blair Witch Project and Cannibal Holocaust are good examples of this. Back when these movies were released, the films were so raw and immerse that people thought they were real. Cannibal Holocaust, in particular, was so convincing that the director was charged for murder and he had to prove that he didn't straight up murder people.

That said, I can see why you would not like them. The genre does seem gimmicky and often looks cheaply made since it is often filmed using the shakey camera technique and the hand held camera.

I think I might try Gone Girl. The trailer has caught my eye.

So, NBC heard that you like Black Sails! So, they're making their own pirates series.

Synopsis:

It’s 1715 on the Bahamian island of Santa Campana, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard (John Malkovich), reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown and part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other on Earth – and a mounting threat to international commerce.

Teach/Blackbeard has set his sights on the world’s first longitude chronometer, a device that will change society, sea-trade and global business. In a massive attack on an English vessel, Blackbeard attempts to steal the device; however, Tom Lowe, an English spy working undercover as the ship’s surgeon, destroys the chronometer before it can fall into his hands. Taken as prisoner to Santa Campana Island, Lowe must find a way to reassemble the precious device, all while trying to unfold Blackbeard’s plan… a plan that includes a threat to the English throne even worse than pirates.

From the award-winning creator of “Luther,” Neil Cross, and award-winning executive producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald (“Gladiator,” “Men in Black”) comes an extraordinary action adventure with an unexpected moral center where one can’t be sure whether the pirates or the British crown are the villains. One-hour drama.

So, a famous captain is looking for something that will bring a new age piracy. However, some jerk stops him from reaching his goal by destroying the map/compass. Now the captain must bring said jerk onto his ship because that jerk memorized the directions on how to get to the captain's goal. Well, if NBC wanted to replicate Black Sails, it seems like they have done just that.
