Most celebrities avoid failed franchises like the plague when it comes to the talk of sequels. Miles Teller isn't like most celebrities. Speaking to JoBlo, the actor says he would return as Reed Richards for a Fantastic Four sequel:
"Yeah, for sure. I loved the cast, I loved the characters. I think it's such an interesting dynamic. I love how much they really need to rely on each other. This Avengers thing, they've kind of created their own Fantastic Four in a way, Marvel's first family. Their powers can't just exist on their own, you need Thor to do this, the Hulk to do his thing. So yeah, absolutely, I would do another one."
The film was panned critically and lead director Josh Trank on a frenzy, blaming everyone but himself for the film's poor reception. I guess Teller must have really enjoyed his screen time because he's not in a position where he has to take any role he can get! Hell, at the moment he appears to be one of Hollywood's largest rising stars!
While I have no desire to see another Fantastic Four movie like the reboot, I admire Teller for sticking with the character. But if I were Fox, I'd say it's best to let this film franchise die.
If you guys missed the premiere season of Vixen on CW Seed last year, you missed out on something great! For those who have missed the classic style of DC Animation, Vixen brought that back...even if it was a little shorter than the typical show. Season two will be coming back to CW Seed, and according to DC All Access, the heroine will be joined by animated versions of the Legends of Tomorrow cast.
Check out some footage of Firestorm and the new season in the video below!
Who didn't think Future Trunks from Dragon Ball Z was badass back in the day? This Saiyan comes out of nowhere from the future and cuts a reconstructed Frieza in half with a sword!
I always wanted to be like Future Trunks when I was younger, and now it looks like I can! Man at Arms created the sword used by the time traveler for me to have! I'm so glad they're going to send this to me for free... Right guys? RIGHT?!
You don't know Dan Perri, but you know his work. Perri has designed the title text for films like The Exorcist, Raging Bull, and even Star Wars. Think about that last one and how often you see it! That's a man's legacy printed over tens of thousands of merchandise items sold daily, and only about .01% of the population knows who he is!
The creator of Doug says that he has plans for a new Doug movie, but that Disney doesn't have any interest in making it happen. Creator Jim Jinkins tells Entertainment Weekly that he has "ideas" for a second film but that Disney owns the rights to it and doesn't want to move forward...
"Maybe if I wrote it like a book and put it out there, Disney would give me permission to do tha...I keep qualifying it, I guess out of being a cock-eyed optimist, but right now they explained they’re not interested in moving Doug forward. In the past, they have expressed interest in a play. Now, that would be a great play. So, I don’t know! But I do think I have a great story for fans to get a feel for where Doug is headed, and I thought that would be an awesome thing to deliver.”
Jinkins shared some ideas including Doug and Skeeter living together in an NYC setting, Pork Chop being alive and well, and his sister Judy doing weird off-Broadway productions. I think it would be cool to see Doug adapted as a Broadway play! It would be goofy, but they made Spider-Man happen, so why not? I don't think I would see a second Doug movie though...what about you?
With the Olympics in full swing, I've been falling behind on my catch up DVR watching non-stop coverage of the games. I'm guessing you're as Olympic crazy as I am, but since you're at work and can't watch, why not learn about your favorite athletes' top sports films? There's a lot of typical picks in here, but I'm really surprised no Olympic themed movies made the cut!
P.S. Respect for the guy who said Space Jam was his favorite sports movie with a straight face.
