Rumor Says Avengers 4 Title Is Annihilation… But Is It?

A new rumor suggests that the title of Avengers 4 is actually Avengers: Annihilation. While the title is lifted from the comics, it’s something of a departure from the original arc; is this rumor really likely to be true?

Marvel’s decision to hold back on announcing the title of Avengers 4 has generated intense debate among fans. What could it be, and why do Marvel consider it to be something of a spoiler? Countless different possibilities have been raised and discarded, and the most popular idea so far remains Avengers: Endgame – even though the Russos insisted the film title isn’t mentioned in Avengers: Infinity War. Curiously, Kevin Feige has suggested the intensity of the debate has “sort of backfired” for Marvel in that he fears there’s no way Marvel can possibly live up to the hype.

The latest rumor originates with MCUCosmic, who claims a reliable source has revealed the title to him. According to the site, the movie will be called Avengers: Annihilation. This idea is derived from a classic comic book story from 2006, written by Keith Giffen. While the plot of Avengers 4 isn’t expected to be anything like the Annihilation arc, MCUCosmic is right to point out that the MCU plays fast and loose with its comic book inspirations. After all, in the comics, Avengers: Age of Ultron was a time-travel story.

But this particular rumor doesn’t seem particularly credible. MCUCosmic has a mixed reputation in terms of the accuracy of his “scoops,” and, as a result, this should be taken with a serious pinch of salt. Indeed, when it comes to major scoops like this, it’s usually best to have at least three independent sources verifying them. They admit they only has the one.

Meanwhile, the question remains whether or not Avengers: Annihilation even fits with the little we know about the title to date. For one thing, it’s quite unlikely that Marvel would choose to name Avengers 4 after a comic book arc in the first place. The Russos have even insisted that Avengers 4 is actually an original story. Choosing to name the film after a comic book story would confuse matters, with some viewers going in expecting to see creatures like the Phalanx or cosmic heroes like Nova and the Silver Surfer.

The Russos themselves have said that the closest anyone has gotten is with the guess Avengers: Forever. It’s hard to see any connection between that and Avengers: Annihilation. Meanwhile, the directors recently posted an image on social media that was believed to hint at the title. MCUCosmic argues that it’s possible to see two letter “A”s on the image, and that these letters stand for Avengers: Annihilation. There’s just one problem with that idea; whatever the Russos were trying to get at with their photo, it wasn’t anything quite so simple. Even Marvel insiders who know the title, such as Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, haven’t been able to work out what the image means. Whatever the truth may be, it’s not going to be anything as easy to spot as looking for two “A”s.

All in all, this seems extremely unlikely. One thing is certain, though; it won’t be long now until Marvel Studios reveals the actual title. The marketing campaign for Avengers 4 will probably kick off within the next month or so, and a title announcement would be a smart way of starting it.

James Bond Rumor: Henry Cavill Eyed To Replace Daniel Craig After Bond 25

Henry Cavill is reportedly being eyed to be the next James Bond. In 2011, Cavill snagged the highly coveted role of Warner Bros. new Superman, but his superhero career hasn’t gone according to plan. After just three appearances, there’s been reports that Cavill is ready to leave the role behind. This comes on the heels of him being cast in the lead of Netflix’s The Witcher live-action series. While he may have a small screen franchise locked down, another one on the big screen may be headed his way.

One of the most talked about potential next roles for Cavill has been James Bond. Daniel Craig currently plays the role for MGM and Eon, but Bond 25 is scheduled to be his final outing. The studios will need someone to replace him eventually, and a new rumor suggests they already have their eyes set on Cavill.

Related: Every Bond 25 Update You Need to Know

Gossip site Crazy Days and Nights (via Comic Book) shared a blind item rumor last week that a studio was looking to cast a “foreign born former superhero” as a replacement in a long-running franchise. Today, the site revealed what that mystery rumor was about, and it was indeed in regard to Cavill being eyed to be the next Bond. This is still just a rumor at this point, but comes from the same site that recently shared Tom Cruise’s Green Lantern casting rumor. Since the validity of this rumor isn’t yet known, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt – or two.

Cavill is in many ways the prototypical casting choice for Bond, which is why many have fan-cast him in the role. He would be in his late 30s by the time he’d make his first appearance – especially with Craig’s Bond 25 now delayed till 2020 as it gets a new director. However, his age is barely a concern, if one at all. He looks the part, and basically auditioned for the role with Man from U.N.C.L.E. a few years back. With The Witcher possibly raising his star power and his stellar turn in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Cavill has everything one is looking for in James Bond.

Even though MGM and Eon may want Cavill for the role now, it’s unlikely that they’re looking too far into Bond’s future at present. They still need to square away Bond 25, get Craig’s final film released to the public, and make sure it delivers for fans, before worrying too much about what comes after. If it’s Cavill who plays 007 next, then great. He even believes he’s more prepared to play the role after his experience making Fallout. If today’s rumor is true, then he’ll get his shot at the job eventually.

Rumor: New Sonic the Hedgehog Animated Series in Development

If rumors are correct, a new Sonic the Hedgehog animated series could be arriving in the foreseeable future. The blue hedgehog made his debut back in 1991 in a video game for the SEGA Genesis console. Now, nearly 30 years later, Sonic is still being featured in video games, TV shows, and (starting next year) movies.

Sonic the Hedgehog was a huge hit right when the original game was released in the ’90s. A sequel to the first game was released the very next year in 1992 and game developers have since pumped out video games about as fast as Sonic can run. SEGA and the following game developers have kept up with the times and continued to release a Sonic video game with each new console. Sonic also made his TV debut in 1993, via a cartoon series titled The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog (which ran for three years and a total of 66 episodes). Even more Sonic animated TV shows have been produced since then, including – most recently – the YouTube series Sonic Mania Adventures, which helped promote the video game Sonic Mania Plus. The series was a collection of shorts but by the looks of it, a whole new animated TV show could be in the pipeline.

In an Instagram post, Sonic Mania Adventures Production Manager Cel La Flaca teased the development of a brand-new animated series. In the photo, Flaca can be seen posing in front of a Sonic statue (as well as cutouts of other Sonic characters), with the image caption reading “Gotta go fast, gotta make it last—finally swung around the SEGA office”. That being said, her original post included the caption, “we’re working on another fun series with the blue hedgehog… y’all are gonna love it” but has since been edited to not include any mention of “another fun series”. Check out a screenshot of her original post, below.

Regardless of whether there’s a new Sonic animated series in the pipeline or not, a Sonic the Hedgehog movie is set to be released near the end of 2019. This film will be a combination of live-action and CGI and follow Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) as he goes on adventures with a human police officer played by James Marsden. It’s also worth noting that the film will make some drastic changes to Sonic’s character – specifically, Sonic will be a juvenile delinquent in the movie.

While the Sonic movie is currently in production, a new animated series isn’t 100 percent official for the time being. There could be a number of reasons why Flaca’s original Instagram post was edited, but it’s possible SEGA simply didn’t want the news to break just yet. There could be another explanation altogether (like, say, the show has already been cancelled), so for the time being anyone’s guess is fair game. In the meantime, we will continue to bring you more Sonic the Hedgehog-related news (including, updates on the movie) as they come our way.

Supergirl Movie Rumor: Brainiac Currently Expected To Be The Villain

A new rumor has started circulating around the internet suggesting that Brainiac could be the main villain for the Supergirl movie. It’s been a wild, rumor-filled week for the DCEU, with some suggesting that Superman himself Henry Cavill could be stepping down from the role while others, including Cavill’s agent, say he’ll be sticking around. With Cavill’s future as Superman uncertain, yet more rumors have suggested that Warner Bros. is focusing their efforts on bringing Clark Kent’s Kryptonian cousin Kara to the big screen for her own solo Supergirl movie.

Even before the rumors of Cavill’s departure started to pop up, Warner Bros. was reportedly in the early stages of producing a Supergirl film, even hiring 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel to pen the script. The studio has also apparently been looking to recreate the circumstances that led to their highly successful Wonder Woman movie by hiring a female director to helm the project, with names like Reed Morano being considered. Now, however, it’s rumored that the Supergirl film has potentially found its villain.

Related: Every Female-Driven DC Movie in Development

According to Daniel R at SuperBroMovies, the plan for now is for Brainiac to step into the villain role for the Supergirl movie. This rumor builds on another rumor that Supergirl will take place in the 1970s, long before Cavill’s Superman is around.

Naturally, rumors like this should be taken with a giant grain of salt and it would not be the first time that this particular source has gotten it wrong. However, bringing such an epic villain like Brainiac to the big screen for the first time would certainly be a great way to make Supergirl a must-see film for comic fans. It also wouldn’t be the first time that Brainiac has been mentioned by someone associated with the DCEU, with Cavill himself stating months ago that he’d like the character to be the main villain for Man of Steel 2.

With Cavill’s future as the Man of Steel currently in doubt, it’s certainly possible that Warner Bros. took that idea and implemented it instead for their Supergirl movie. It also might be a little strange for the character to show up as opposition to Supergirl before Superman, considering how much of a major adversary he’s been to the comic version of the latter. Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time that DC and Warner Bros. has altered or outright changed the mythos of characters compared to their comic counterpart. For now, fans will simply have to wait and see if rumors of Brainiac’s involvement in Supergirl has any merit.

Swamp Thing TV Show Rumor: Derek Mears Up For Creature Role

According to a new rumor, DC’s Swamp Thing streaming series may cast Jason Voorhees actor Derek Mears in the role of the creature. Swamp Thing is set to star Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, a CDC investigator who travels to her old home town of Houma, Louisiana to look into a mysterious virus. But her investigation leads her to discover something even stranger and potentially more horrifying lurking in the swamps.

Underworld director Len Wiseman is set to helm the Swamp Thing pilot, after a previous rumor that said James Wan and Deran Sarafian would handle those duties. Gary Dauberman and Mark Verheiden wrote the script, based on original characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. Swamp Thing previously received the feature film treatment back in 1982, and there was also a TV series version that aired on USA Network from 1990-1993.

Related: DC’s Swamp Thing Series Will Be Scary, Violent, & Mature-Rated

According to Splash Report, Swamp Thing is set to cast Derek Mears in the role of the titular creature. Importantly, Mears will only be playing the creature, and not the human, Alec Holland, who eventually turns into the creature, a humanoid made of vegetable matter who despite his horrifying appearance is really a good guy just trying to defend his swamp home against threats both human and supernatural. There is as yet no confirmation on this report, so it remains firmly in the rumor category for now.

A noted stunt performer, Mears has also taken on multiple credited roles on television and in movies, appearing mainly in horror films, including the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th, where he donned the iconic hockey mask and played Jason Voorhees. Mears also appeared in Hatchet III alongside fan-favorite Jason actor Kane Hodder. On the TV side, Mears has appeared in everything from The Flash to Sleepy Hollow to Twin Peaks. But perhaps his greatest TV role came when he played Troy and Abed’s favorite superhero Kickpuncher on Community. Mears can next be seen in Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets, as well as James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel.

According to a recent character breakdown, Swamp Thing the TV series will focus on the “Shape of Water” romance between Abby and Swamp Thing/Alec Holland. The series also recently cast Maria Sten in the role of Liz Tremayne, a local newspaper reporter/bartender and old high school friend of Abby’s who seeks to protect her home town. Swamp Thing is set to premiere in 2019 on the new DC Universe streaming service.

Ryan Reynolds Calls Thundercats Movie Rumor “Ridiculous”

Ryan Reynolds has become the latest person to officially deny that Netflix’s upcoming action movie Six Underground is a cover for a live-action Thundercats movie, calling the rumors to that effect “ridiculous.” Reynolds, who is starring in the upcoming film, has joined Six Underground screenwriter Rhett Reese and director Michael Bay in shooting down the rumors on their respective social media accounts. This followed a story published by IGN Middle East, that reported the rumors as legitimate news.

Written by Reese and frequent collaborator Paul Wernick (who previously worked with Reynolds on Deadpool and Deadpool 2), Six Underground will tell the story of six billionaires who fake their deaths so they can form a team of crime-fighters. In addition to Reynolds, the movie will also star Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Ben Hardy, Corey Hawkins, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Adria Arjona. The project has already begun filming and is currently shooting in Florence, Italy.

Reynolds referred to the “amazing locales” where Six Underground is set, in a reply to Reese’s Tweet regarding the Thundercats film rumors, which is included below. Reese simply denied the rumors with a single, solitary “No.” Reynolds went one step further, with tongue firmly in cheek, and a level of sarcasm worthy of Wade Wilson himself. Reynolds evoked the name of Thundera (the home planet of the Thundercats) along with Florence and Abu Dhabi, where Six Underground is scheduled to shoot scenes in November.

The reasoning behind the rumors of the secret Thundercats movie seems to be based around several random factoids. Chief among these is the fact that Bay has been attached to direct a live-action Thundercats movie since 2012, and has previous experience adapting popular 1980s toy-lines and cartoons into full-length feature films as a director and producer on the Transformers movies. Another point in favor of the theory is that Reese and Wernick had previously worked together on the screenplay for G.I. Joe: Retaliation – another action movie based on a popular animated series and toy set. Finally, the source that confirmed the rumor was apparently the same one who confirmed that Simon Pegg had been cast in a minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Unfortunately, all of this seems to be wishful thinking on the part of Thundercats fans. While Reese and Wernick could likely write a fantastic Thundercats movie and Bay would be uniquely suited to direct such a film, there are far too many photos from the set that show Six Underground to be exactly what it was advertised to be – an action movie set on this Earth, rather than Third Earth. However,the clear enthusiasm for the project may spur Warner Bros. (who currently own the film rights to Thundercats) to consider moving forward with such a film, much like how the love for the leaked test footage for Deadpool inspired Fox to move forward with making the movie. For now though, fans of the Thundercats will just have to wait.

Swamp Thing TV Show Rumor: Len Wiseman To Direct Pilot

DC Universe’s live-action Swamp Thing TV show seems to be getting ready to shoot, with a new rumor indicating that Underworld creator Len Wiseman will direct the pilot episode. Along with Titans and Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing will be one of the key attractions on DC Comics and Warner Bros.’ new subscription service, which will also include animated series and a selection of both classic and recent comic books.

Earlier this summer there was a rumor that Aquaman director James Wan would co-direct the Swamp Thing pilot along with veteran TV director Deran Serafian, but Wan’s representatives quickly debunked that rumor. Now, however, it seems that another director with horror movie experience has been lined up for the show.

Related: Swamp Thing TV Show Isn’t in Same Universe as Titans & Doom Patrol

According to Splash Report, “multiple sources” are claiming that Len Wiseman has been tapped to direct the pilot episode of Swamp Thing. While this is just rumor at this point, it does make sense given that Wiseman previously directed the pilot episodes of Lucifer, Sleepy Hollow, Hawaii Five-0, and ABP, as well as the second episode of The Gifted, and was an executive producer on all of those shows. The report doesn’t add any further details, save for reiterating that the show is expected to begin filming this fall in Wilmington, NC. Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman wrote the pilot’s script and will serve as showrunners.

Wiseman is best known for co-creating the Underworld movie franchise and for directing the first two entries, Underworld and Underworld: Evolution. He also directed Die Hard 4.0, and is attached to direct a prequel/sequel movie called Die Hard Year One, which will explore John McClane’s life as a cop prior to that fateful night at Nakatomi Plaza. Wiseman is familiar with adapting comic books for TV, and as such would be a pretty solid choice to direct the Swamp Thing pilot.

Created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, Swamp Thing made his debut in the pages in DC Comics in the 1970s. The character was created when Alec Holland, a scientist, ran into a swamp to douse the flames on his body when a bomb exploded in his lab. The swamp then created a life form – a sentient, humanoid plant with Alec’s memories, which has the ability to commune with and control plant life. It’s a tricky character to pull off in an adaptation, but if DC Universe’s Swamp Thing proves to be a success, it could be a major draw for the new subscription service.

The Batman Rumor: Oscar Isaac Met With WB For An Unknown Role

Rumor has it that actor Oscar Isaac has met with Warner Bros. for a role in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming film, The Batman. The film itself is still in the scripting phase, so little to nothing is known about the actual plot outside of rumors and brief mentions from Reeves, such as The Batman not being based on Year One.

Reeves’ Batman film already has a complicated history. Ben Affleck confirmed the project’s existence back in 2016, and at the time the actor was set to not only star in the film, but to also write and direct it. Since then, the writing and directing responsibilities have been handed off to Matt Reeves in order for Affleck to focus on his acting portrayal of the Caped Crusader. Yet, rumors of Reeves recasting the Batman role continue to persist, and it seems that Affleck may only be involved as a producer. Whether or not he will act in the film is currently unknown, despite the fact that filming is reportedly set to begin as early as 2019. But still, there are several other roles in the movie that would need to be filled, and it seems like WB may be getting a head start on meeting with actors for those potential roles.

Related: Kevin Smith Praises Ben Affleck’s Batman Performance

According to a report from GWW, Oscar Isaac has been approached for an undisclosed role in the film. While the role is unknown, Isaac is reportedly highly interested in the film. The rumors surrounding the movie also suggest the studio is pursuing an A-list actor to portray the main villain, who is rumored to possibly be the Penguin.

While his portrayal of Poe Dameron in the Star Wars franchise certainly shows his capacity to play the hero, Isaac has taken on more sinister roles as well. He portrayed the central villain in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, as well as the shady scientist at the center of 2015’s science fiction thriller Ex Machina. With such varied roles already under his belt – as well as a Golden Globe winning performance in the HBO miniseries Show Me A Hero – Isaac is a solid candidate for the studio as they seek an actor strong enough to carry the role of The Batman‘s antagonist, if that’s the route they are looking to take for him.

It will be interesting to see how the studio uses Isaac should he officially board the project. With the film’s place in the DCEU is in question, especially if it happens to be a prequel, Reeves may be able to start his Batman story with no strings attached and even recast Isaac in a role that has already been seen in the DCEU. Isaac’s interest is at least a good sign for the studio, though, as the actor’s growing reputation for great performances would surely excite more fans who want to see the DC film be a success.

Rumor: Supergirl Movie Eyes Handmaid’s Tale’s Reed Morano to Direct

A new rumor suggests that Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing Reed Morano to direct their upcoming Supergirl movie. DC Films chief Walter Hamada has been making all sorts of changes behind the scenes every since taking over the studio’s DC movie division late last year, but one thing that he hasn’t changed is continuing to develop a flurry of movies, almost all of which are standalone films. One such movie was revealed earlier this month: Supergirl – a solo movie focusing on Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El.

It was reported that The Cloverfield Paradox and 22 Jump Street scribe Oren Uziel was hired to pen the screenplay for DC’s Supergirl movie, though it was unclear if that script would be an origin story or perhaps a spinoff of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. Since the project is early in development, the studio hasn’t hired anyone to direct or star in the movie in the title role as of yet. But in keeping with their apparent goal of hiring female directors to helm female-led superhero movies, WB is very much hoping to hire a female filmmaker for the project – and it looks like they have identified a potential candidate.

Related: 9 Actresses Who Could Play Supergirl In The DCEU

GWW reports that WB is eyeing Reed Morano to direct the Supergirl movie, but a meeting hasn’t happened yet; therefore, no offer has been made. Morano has been a well-known cinematographer in the industry, but she recently made the jump to directing by helming a few episodes of Showtime’s Billions as well as Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, for which she won an Emmy award in 2017. She also directed her second feature film, I Think We’re Alone Now, starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning, a science fiction film which releases in theaters this September.

Given her recent track record, it isn’t surprising that WB would be looking at someone like Morano to helm Supergirl. However, seeing as no meeting has taken place yet, it’s safe to say that the project is still a long way off from happening. If hired, Morano would join Wonder Woman‘s Patty Jenkins and Birds of Prey‘s Cathy Yan as the DC movie universe’s female directors. And putting more female-driven superhero projects into development is something that Marvel Studios is starting to do as well, having hired Anna Boden to co-direct Captain Marvel, with Cate Shortland taking on the Black Widow movie.

While the Supergirl movie continues to gestate behind the scenes, DC Films will push forward with production for Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, as well as start prepping for Todd Phillips’ Joker, Yan’s Birds of Prey, and Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s The Flash. Of course, those aren’t the only projects in the works, but they are the only ones with plans to start filming soon. Who knows, it’s possible Supergirl could wind up on that list sooner rather than later.

Rumor: Texas Chain Saw Massacre TV Series, New Film In The Works

The franchise for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre could be getting a new lease of life, as talks are reportedly ongoing for the production of further movies and a TV series. Rights for the Texas Chainsaw brand recently reverted to Kim Henkel, who was the writer and producer on the original 1970s horror. According to sources, this has caused studios to bid for future projects, with a number of them interested in producing not only further films but an ongoing TV series as well.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was released in 1974, and despite controversy during the following years, the Tobe Hooper film is rightly now considered to be a classic of the genre and appears in countless best horror movie listings. It depicts the crimes of a cannibalistic family who prey on unsuspecting tourists in rural Texas. Very loosely influenced by the tales of real-life killer Ed Gein, the central character of Leatherface went on to become an icon within the horror community, and was marked by his human-flesh mask and the chainsaws that he wielded to deadly effect. Hooper made a direct sequel in 1986, and since then the franchise has spawned a further six films. In a convoluted timeline, some of those were sequels and continued on from the original story, whereas the 2003 film of the same name was produced by Platinum Dunes and was a remake that confusingly led to its own prequel. To further complicate things, last year’s Leatherface was a prequel to the original movie.

Related: Best Exploitation Movies of All Time

But now Bloody Disgusting reports that the change in rights has allowed several studios to become interested in revitalising the brand. Apparently leading the pack is Legendary Entertainment/Legendary Pictures, who are allegedly keen to make a TV series about Leatherface and his kin, as well as continuing to make larger-budget horror movies about them. This is said to be the main objective for the talks that are ongoing, and that further outings on both the small and big screen are “inevitable” whatever the outcome.

If accurate, it’s an interesting state of affairs for the franchise, which is far from its no-budget origins. If Legendary do become the new “owners” of Leatherface, it could be a fresh brand for them to build on and compete in hard-edged R-rated territory. They also have a good relationship with Warners Bros. and Netflix, which could point to their intentions. The most recent film explored Leatherface’s formative years and attracted the talents of Lili Taylor (The Conjuring) and Stephen Dorff (True Detective). This could feasibly provide the groundwork for an ongoing series, while the films could continue in more modern times, but it’s all conjecture at this point.

In the past, despite the varying quality of the movies and only the original really drawing universal admiration, the franchise has attracted some surprising actors: Jessica Biel was in the 2003 remake, Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger starred in the thoroughly warped Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, and Alexandra Daddario played Leatherface’s cousin in Texas Chainsaw 3D. So attracting major talent shouldn’t be an issue. However, it should be noted that none of this has been confirmed or denied yet, and it remains firmly in rumor territory at the moment. But if a major studio does plan to bring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre back to theaters and TVs, they’ll need to tread carefully and not upset fans of the groundbreaking original again.
