Disney CEO Confirms "Slowdown" on STAR WARS Movie Releases

Image
When Disney first acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, the studio made plans to release a Star Wars movie every year, beginning in 2015. However, that plan has led to concerns of franchise fatigue, and it has manifested in the lackluster performance of this year's Solo: A Star Wars Story. Since then, Lucasfilm has been mum on future franchise plans, but now we have a hint of what's to come...or when, more accurately.

Disney CEO Bob Iger confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that there will be a "slowdown" for releasing future Star Wars movies. While the studio will absolutely keep making these movies, there will be more caution about when they will be released. "I made the timing decision, and as I look back, I think the mistake that I made - I take the blame - was a little too much, too fast. You can expect some slowdown, but that doesn't mean we're not going to make films. J.J. [Abrams] is busy making [Episode] IX. We have creative entities, including [Game of Th…

ABC Moving Forward with Marvel Show About Female Superheroes from WONDER WOMAN Writer

Image
Marvel TV has been growing bigger and bigger every year, but it originally began on ABC with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2013. Since then, the two have collaborated on Agent Carter and Inhumans, which were both short-lived, while Freeform has Cloak and Dagger. But ABC has talked about bringing in a new Marvel series soon, specifically with a female lead. And now, it's moving forward.

Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg is developing an untitled Marvel series for ABC, which has given it a production commitment. The show is about female superheroes in the Marvel Universe, and it is expected to focus on lesser-known characters. No word on who exactly those characters are, but the sky's the limit. In addition to writing, Heinberg is producing with Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb.

This move comes as Marvel is increasing its lineup of female-led properties, both on film and television. Netflix's Jessica Joneshas been a big hit, while a Scarlet Witchseries is in the works at Disney Play. …

Bryan Singer in Talks to Direct New RED SONJA Movie

Image
Filmmaker Bryan Singer's public image has been tarnished in recent years, following multiple sexual assault allegations and being fired from Bohemian Rhapsody. Despite this, Singer is trying to make a comeback, and he is lining up his next high-profile project.

Singer is in talks to direct Red Sonja, Millennium's new movie starring the comic book heroine. The studio intends to pay Singer "top dollar" for the gig and is (unfortunately) unconcerned with the director's allegations. X-Men: First Class scribe Ashley Miller is writing the script.

Red Sonja was created in the 1970s, as a Conan the Barbarian spinoff. She previously got her own movie in 1985, where she was played by Brigitte Nielsen. A reboot has been in development for years, and this is the latest push towards development.

Singer has a history with comic book adaptations, being one of the main creative forces of the X-Men franchise. He directed the first film, X2, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse, a…

Killmonger is Getting His Own Prequel Comic From Bryan Edward Hill

Image
I am Killmonger No one's perfect But no one's worthless We ain't deserving of everything Heaven and Earth is But word is, good - Paramedic!, Kendrick Lamar feat. SOB X RBE
When Black Panther hit theaters last February, audiences werecaptivated by the man, the myth, the legend, Michael B. Jordan Erik Killmonger.


Killmonger was a hit with viewers because his moral center and ideals challenged the hero in a direct way. He was wrong when he was right, just when he was unjust, and flawed where he had been failed, and Jordan sold that arc with genuine gravitas and pathos (if it sounds like I'm stanning for that Oscars campaign, you're darn right).

So it's with great excitement that Marvel announced a new prequel comic series written by Bryan Edward Hill, with art by Juan Ferreyra. The 4 issue series is set to drop this December. Hill is a rising star in the writing world, having written for Marvel, DC, and Top Cow, and most recently on Ash vs Evil Dead and the upcoming Ti…

A live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series is in the works at Netflix with the original series creators involved.

After the massive disappointment that was 2010's The Last Airbender, it seemed like it would only be a pipe dream (or really a total and utter nightmare) that we would get a sequel let alone a franchise. Fans of the hit Nickelodeon cartoon from the mid-2000s have been clamoring for a more accurate live-action take on the source material, and now it looks like they will finally get their wish.

Netflix has announced that a live-action series is in development. Deadline reports that the new series will be made in partnership with Nickelodeon and that original series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will be both executive producing the series and serving as showrunners.
