Fantastic Four Reboot By Fox Is Getting Serious

Fantastic Four Reboot By Fox Is Getting Serious | Comic Books | Scoop.it
Encouraged by the warm reception of X-Men: First Class and the way everyone keeps posting photos of Andrew Garfield as the new Spider-Man despite their protests that it’s way too soon to have a “new” Spider-Man, Fox is still intent on doing a similar reboot of Fantastic Four, one that would echo most fans by completely ignoring the mid-’00s movie versions. At last report, the studio was attempting to woo Bruce Willis to take over for Michael Chiklis as The Thing, using the promise that he would mostly be responsible for simply voicing a Hulk-like, CGIed update of the character, thus leaving him plenty of time to play blues harmonica or whatever.
That particular idea seems to have petered out somewhat, but Variety reports that the script from Green Lantern’s Michael Green is still in play—and more promisingly, producer Akiva Goldsman is not—and that Fox is now toying with the idea of giving the franchise to Chronicle director Josh Trank. Of course, that’s contingent on Trank’s found-footage superhero film actually performing well, but as with the studio’s plans to give Daredevil another shot (and ditto the X-Men and Silver Surfer), what the reboot really hinges on is Fox wanting to retain its control over those Marvel characters, which it can only do so long as it continues to put them in movies. So unless Fox meets a girl in its yoga class, has some sort of Buddhist awakening, and just starts giving away all its earthly possessions, you will see a new Fantastic Four movie pretty soon. And Fox barely even goes to yoga as it is, so probably count on it.

'Conan' Director Marcus Nispel Takes On Horror-Action Movie 'Hack/Slash'

'Conan' Director Marcus Nispel Takes On Horror-Action Movie 'Hack/Slash' | Comic Books | Scoop.it

Marcus Nispel, who directed last summer's Conan the Barbarian, has come aboard to helm Hack/Slash, Relativity’s adaptation of a horror-action comic book.


Hack/Slash, created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli, centers on Cassie Hack, a woman who symbolizes the cliche of the lone girl who survives at the end of every horror movie. In this case, the girl not only survived but has become a killer of killers. Along with a hulking protector named Vlad, Hack travels across the country hunting slashers in the vein of Halloween's Michael Myers, Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger.

DC Comics and DC Entertainment Unveil New Lackluster Logos

DC Comics and DC Entertainment Unveil New Lackluster Logos | Comic Books | Scoop.it
In the world of logos and corporate branding, DC Comics may have fallen asleep at the wheel with their latest logo redesign. Gone is the star and the circle or swirl. While it’s understandable that their classic logo may have been confused with the DC Shoes Logo that also featured the two letters with a star. Bleeding Cool reported that DC Comics and DC Entertainment would be getting a new logo this year and sound the trumpets, it has arrived to uninspiring results.

Favorite Marvel Comic Books of 2011

Favorite Marvel Comic Books of 2011 | Comic Books | Scoop.it

Marvel didn’t need a relaunch to make 2011 one of it’s biggest and craziest years in recent memory. From it’s Civil War-sized event in Fear Itself and the perhaps-better-than-Fear-Itself-event in X: Men Schism the universe has seen a shake-up of the ages; the split in the X-Men camp, the new Ultimate Spider-Man, the real Spider-Man as a new FF member, Wolverine traveling to hell and back (literally), the “death” of just about every character imaginable and the new breath of life from characters like Punisher, Daredevil, Venom, and Hulk…the list can go on and on…it was a big year.
