With just under a month to go before Jessica Jones premieres on Netflix, Marvel’s next gritty streaming television series may have added yet another cast member. At least, that’s according to Jon Schnepp over at Collider, who claims that the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen himself will pop up in some form or fashion. Continue reading
Spider-Man 3 is not the worst superhero movie, or really even the worst Spider-Man movie. It’s even got its endearing touches; Parker the dork trying desperately to look evil, but instead coming up with a dumb emo haircut remains one of the funniest gags in the entire series. But it’s just too much plot packed into too little time, and too much melodrama. And Sam Raimi, to his credit, owns up to his part, but he’d love a chance to make it right.
I messed up on the third one. I think they’re so complete now, Marvel. They probably don’t need me anymore. But if they needed me? I’d love to.
Really, what we need here is Raimi on a Marvel Netflix series. No, really; it doesn’t come up as often as it should, but Raimi’s a prolific TV producer with his friend Rob Tapert, and in fact Daredevil‘s showrunner, Steven S. DeKnight, worked with Tapert and Raimi on the last two seasons of Spartacus. Raimi would be perfect for, say, the Moon Knight series fans are beginning to beg Marvel for, or to finally deliver an adaptation of Nextwave. Really, who wouldn’t want to see Sam Raimi siccing broccoli men on a bunch of second-rate superheroes?

John Wick 2 has just found its big bad.
According to THR, actor/rapper (and recent Oscar-winner) Common is set to play the film’s “chief villain, a head of security for a female crime lord.” That raises some interesting questions (namely, who is this female crime lord and which actress will ultimately play her?), but any more information is frustratingly hard to come by at this point. With production set to begin this week, we’ll hopefully know more soon. Reeves had some intriguing things to say about the sequel recently, but didn’t offer many concrete details about the movie’s plot.
The original John Wick was co-directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, but the sequel will only be helmed by Stahelski. Star Keanu Reeves is coming back (“yeah, I’m thinkin’ [he’s] back”) to reprise the title role of an assassin who dove back into the underworld to get revenge on a gangster’s son who murdered his dog. Meanwhile, Common will play a mysterious role in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Suicide Squad film next summer.
