  • THR Esq. entertainment legal blog says bootleg copies of 'Iron Man 2' have flooded in from foreign markets and are now easily downloadable via various file sharing methods. And fans in North American territories are still waiting for the movie's Friday release. Paramount and Marvel, however, seem unconcerned.
  • Directing duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor chatted up SlashFilm about a variety of subjects, including their exit from the 'Jonah Hex' movie. While the current film utilizes their script, they said they were aiming for an edgy, R-rated film whereas the studio wanted a PG-13 movie. They also mention a couple of times that Megan Fox is hot.
  • The made for TV version of Lee Falk's 'The Phantom' is slated to air on SyFy Sunday, June 20 at 7pm, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
  • CHUD has a rumorish/speculatory article thing about how a 'Captain America' sequel may or may not have the Winder Soldier in it.
  • Regarding 'The Avengers', Jon Favreau told MTV Splash Page that, "If it ends up being Joss Whedon [directing the film], I think it's a great choice because he's got a great sense of humor [and] he has a deep knowledge of the whole universe which I think 'The Avengers' would require because you're weaving a lot of different mythologies and storylines together."
  • Speaking of Ms. Megan Fox, has scored some photos of the actress doing some pre-vis work on the set of 'Transformers 3' in Los Angeles, California on May 2. She was joined by co-star Bumblebee in Camaro mode.

Vaughn back in X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Mix

In the swirl of rumors about an 'X-Men: First Class' director, the name Matthew Vaughn blipped most brightly on the radar last week, only to be dismissed yesterday, and then re-appear as the front runner to take the job.

Heat Vision reports the 'Kick-Ass' director was, in fact, in the midst of intense negotiations with the studio last week but walked away from the deal they offered him. Vaughn had met with producer Bryan Singer and began hashing out ideas for the film. According to the report, even as things broke down between Fox and Vaughn's reps, the two filmmakers continued to talk. Singer is apparently so sold on Vaughn that he convinced all parties involved to get back together and make a deal.

Fox is eager to get an 'X-Men' movie into production and apparently love Vaughn's ability to juggle multiple characters and sub-plots. Word is that, at this point, it all comes down to the financial aspects of the deal, but for all intents and purposes, Vaughn will be the 'First Class' director.

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.




Two new actors have joined the cast of DreamWorks 'Cowboys & Aliens', loosely based on the graphic novel published by Platinum Studios.

Actor Sam Rockwell will re-team with his 'Iron Man 2' director Jon Favreau for the film, according to Heat Vision. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford Online reports that Clancy Brown is also among the cast members.

Rockwell's character underwent some recent rewrites after the actor committed to it.  Favreau recalled writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof to expand the role of a barkeep named "Doc" to suit the actor.

All we know of Brown's part is that he's playing a character named Meachham.

The two join Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford in the film.

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

X-Men by next year? Wow, that would be a real rush job without a set cast or script. Disney needs to step in and pull this franchise from Fox by any means necessary.

I don't think that the comparison of bootlegs of Wolverine and IronMan 2 are the same thing. Wolverine's was out like a month in advance. It was to the point that some street vendors had them on the streets way before the film was released. IM2 is days away and already has made over 100mil bucks overseas. Also and most importantly I think, Fox produced and distributed Wolverine where as Paramount is only distributing IM2 while Marvel financed it.

I agree nthat Whedon will do a good job but there's still a bit of skepticism in me, fingers crossed all the way til 2012

I like how all these people get in an uproar about job cuts, even teachers. Well isn't California going broke, how do they propose to keep paying these teachers with their benefits and generous retirement packages, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS I say since they mostly nrefuse any give backs or pay cuts

Oh yeah, what's up with the look of this page, looks unfinished

Does anyone really care about another X-Men movie if it is not done by Marvel at this point? I'm sure that thought is lingering in the the Fox Execs heads.

I predicted the bootleg copies last week of IM2....blame the morons for releasing it overseas a week before the U.S.  Stupid move and is going to cost them millions now. 

Cowboys and Aliens is sounding more interesting to me by the day.

Amby, have no interest in X-Men first class at this point but you never know if things start rolling on it if it will interest us or not.

Vaughn back in the mix! Wh00t!

KillerTomato 5/4/2010 9:06:47 AM

@ Hobbs.  Yeah...I don't think bootlegs are gonna cost anyone millions...mostly because pretty much anyone who wants to see Iron Man 2 are planning on seeing it in theaters, even if they had a bootleg.  The biggest reason being the poor word of mouth from the Wolverine movie...Iron Man on the other hand, apart from mixed professional reviews is already bringing in money, and most people who have seen Iron Man have said it was yeah...there really is no major concern there...

Sebastian Stan, the actor playing Bucky, signed a six picture deal.  So I don't see how they wouldn't do a Winter Solider spin off.

 My good peeps you gotta understand, the Wolverine leak was a DVD quality leak without some special effects finished.  Iron Man 2 wasn't leaked, it was just plain old pirated.  All the copies that are out there are camera versions which are never any good, plus a lot of the copies floating around are in other languages. The few English speaking versions that are out there, I don't believe are good enough to keep anyone from going to see it at the movies.  Also, like Killertomato said, Wolverine sucked balls, word of mouth aint that bad on IM 2.

Whedon would have been perfect for the new X-Men movie and will be perfect for Avengers, but after getting screwed by Fox before I doubt he'd even want the X-Men. Regardless of the director the quality of a new X-Men movie will depend on how much the Fox brass has their hands into the production. Hopefully with Singer aboard that will be kept to a minimum.

I could care less about bootleg copies of Iron Man 2. I was offered one, but declined because there are some movies meant to be seen on the big screen the first time. Why would anyone want to watch a movie filmed on a video camera someone snuck into the theater. The lighting, sound and picture are usually bad and the cameras are as shaky as watching Cloverfield. No, I'll pay the $10 to enjoy the movie in the theater.

Has anyone seen the new Phantom trailer. The new costume is absolutely horrible. After watching the trailer there's no way I'll even watch the pilot. It looks worse than the Flash Gordon crap from a couple of years ago. Why try and "re-imagine" the classic costume, especially for the horrible version the producers settled on. Absolute trash. It's a shame; I had been looking forward to the series.

Jonah Hex is going to tank. The trailer looked about as bad as The Phantom; low-rent, SyFy-produced crap. Megan Fox is hot, but not enough to make me go see the movie at this point.

Infortunately, I don't see the X-Men property leaving Fox's hands any time soon.  As long as they continue to release films based on those characters on a consistent basis, they will be fullfilling their end of the contract.  Since Fox is obviously intent on cranking out these films (regardless of quality) every couple of years, there's not much hope that the X-Men license will revert to Marvel/Disney for several years.  Fox is going to run that franchise into the ground.
