Micro-budget filmmaker and lover of all things horror.

It looks like the Friday the 13th reboot is going to take an even longer time to get off of the ground – as a lawsuit is about to be filed: A federal court in Connecticut is about to host a lawsuit that will determine who owns the rights to the franchise. The case is between Victor Miller, the writer of the original film, and Horror, Inc. and the Manny Company, who claim that Miller’s script was done as a ‘work-made-for-hire’.” The Manny Company also had this to say: Miller had never written a horror screenplay prior to his being…

We have exciting news regarding one of DC’s most popular anti heroes – Lobo. Who is Lobo, you ask? He’s an intergalactic bounty hunter with a sense of humor not too different from Marvel’s own Deadpool. Although I’d say his sense of style comes more from Rob Zombie. And what about this exciting news? Well, according to a recent 4Chan leak, here’s where Lobo stands: Lobo is currently up in the air, being eyed as a potential TV series set in the DCEU movie universe. That’s right – this would make for the first live-action series to take place within…

Marvel has finally released one of the coolest tidbits from Comic-Con 2016 – the mockumentary featuring Thor and what he was up to during the events of Civil War! In it, Thor is shown having all sorts of crazy “adventures” with his Thor: Ragnarok costar The Incredible Hulk at his side. There’s also a little tease about a “purple guy who sits in a chair” aka Thanos, the epic villain from the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. As far as sides for Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi revealed whose side he felt Thor would have joined: “We’ve talked a…

Spider-Man: Homecoming is one of the most anticipated Marvel movies in a long time. It not just marks the return of Spider-Man since his appearance in Civil War, but it marks the first solo Spider-Man film to be released in the MCU! With that said, details of any kind are ravenously sought after, and Spider-Man actor Tom Holland just released a new behind-the-scenes video! Straight from his Instagram, the video shows Holland sitting rather ominously in front of a green screen. Check it out below: https://www.instagram.com/p/BJmS5JIDjbh/ Looks like it’ll lead to a rather sad scene, don’t you think? We’ll find…

Umberto “El Mayimbe” Gonzalez revealed through Periscope that the villain for the upcoming Flash movie will actually be several – yes, the speedster will be facing off against The Rogues! In the comics they consisted of villains such as Captain Boomerang, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Mirror Master, Abrakadabra, Weather Wizard, and more. And with that said, we can also assume that Suicide Squad’s Captain Boomerang will be one of the Rogues, so that will definitely be interesting to see. The Flash will hit theaters on March 16, 2018 – but not before the titular hero makes an appearance in Justice…

With Suicide Squad’s release putting everyone into a Joker fever – how about a little medicine? It’s called Injustice For All; a new fan film from Danny Mooney, who briefly appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The short was even edited by Rob Zombie collaborator Glenn Garland. What’s especially interesting is that the short is horror-themed, and who doesn’t like a little horror thrown in with their Joker? It’s definitely a unique portrayal, differing greatly from his portrayal in Suicide Squad. You can check it out and decide whether or not it’s better than the Leto Joker below! (For…

Captain America: Civil War wasn’t always going to be the third Captain America film – that was a result of WB announcing Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. No, the original Captain America 3 would have been based on the Madbomb storyline from Captain America #193-200 by Jack Kirby. This was revealed by Joe and Anthony Russo who also explained the film would not have had an appearance from Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man. There was a period where we did discuss a third act that revolved around the Madbomb from Cap mythology,” Anthony Russo told EW. “It didn’t have…

Joe and Anthony Russo have explained that the ending for Captain America: Civil War is actually a symbol of something much bigger than most fans expected: Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America. I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” said Joe. “It’s him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.” Although writer Christopher Markus explained Rogers’ leave might just be temporary. “There’s a big purple guy coming. He could be very helpful,” said the film’s co-writer. The “big purple guy” is…

Although Black Widow has become an increasingly popular character in the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s still a lot to her backstory that has been missing. It seems that almost wasn’t the case, however, as a deleted scene from Captain America: Civil War would’ve given much more insight to the character. Though the scene was never filmed, MoviePilot acquired a description of it from the movie’s “Junior Novelization”. Here we see more of Natasha’s training that was first depicted in Avengers: Age of Ultron. You can read the novelization excerpt below: Natasha studied Cap’s expression of resolve. Finally, she said,…
