MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB
On this episode of Nerdcast, Host Jordan Samuel is joined by Micah Wilkerson to discuss the following:
In this week’s episode we discuss the potential names for the upcoming Marvel Spider-Man reboot which include Spider-Man: Homecoming. Sony has registered the following domains: SpiderManComingOfAgeMovie.com, SpiderManGreatnessAwaitsMovie.com, and SpiderManSuspendedMovie.com. These suggest that the new film could be titled Spider-Man: Coming of Age, Spider-Man: Greatness Awaits, or Spider-Man: Suspended.
Jordan and Micah chat about if these names are legit or not, and explain how they could work in the films favor.
Cloak and Dagger
We also got confirmation this week that Marvel are developing a Cloak and Dagger show on ABC Freeform, and will provide the first endeavour into superhero romance in the Cinematic Universe. Jordan and Micah talk about how interesting this could be for the renowned Studio
In their comic book origins, Cloak and Dagger come from very different social backgrounds, but meet as runaways in New York City.
Cloak and Dagger has no cast members or writers as yet, but expect some updates over the coming months.
Earlier this week Heroic Hollywood broke word that Ryan Reynolds has signed on for a Deadpool sequel. Previous reports suggest that Reynolds made $2 million up front for Deadpool and was already signed on for sequels, but his agents at WME were planning to renegotiate for larger pay in future instalment.
Jordan and Micah talk about how exciting this is for Marvel fans, and how Deadpool will change the X-Men universe forever
Edge of Tomorrow Sequel
Talking about sequels we got news this week that, an Edge of Tomorrow sequel has been green lit and will be directed by Doug Liman. Liman’s schedule is crazy at the moment so don’t expect this sequel soon. He’s directing the Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie for 20th Century FOX, though that project has delayed.
Jordan and Micah discuss how this could turn into a franchise, and their opinions on the original film.
Earlier this week Warner Bros. revealed that an new film will be released in 2017. According to Heroic Hollywood, that film is actually the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The report also mentioned that Warner Bros. recently registered the domain name www.thetombraidermovie.com, suggesting the reboot’s title could be The Tomb Raider. Rumors are also circulating that Force Awakens Star Daisy Ridley has been offered the iconic role.
The Tomb Raider movies are based on the action adventure video game series of the same name, created by Eidos Interactive and now owned by Square Enix. The original films starred Angelina Jolie as archaeologist Lara Croft.
Jordan and Micah chat about the original movie, and how excited they are for the reboot which could be a massive surprise.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
It was confirmed that the sequel to Kingsman, will be titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. A new poster for the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, was shared by actor Taron Egerton (Eggsy), and it definitely implies that Hart (Colin Firth) is much more alive than we were previously led to assume.
See the poster below:
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
On Thursday the first trailer for Rogue One was revealed, to many a surprise. The trailer showed off more of the mysterious new black Stormtroopers, as well as the first extended footage of the film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of Disney/Lucasfilm’s new stand-alone films set outside the original trilogy. The story for Rogue One is born from the crawl at the start of the original Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
“It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire,” the opening crawl read. “During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet.”
Check out the trailer:
Rogue One tells the story of those Rebel spies. Jordan and Micah converse about the crazy reveal.
Next week will be tackling The Jungle Book and footage revealed at the MTV Awards, along with a first impression of Captain America: Civil War.
