Joaquin Phoenix Stares Into Your Soul As The Joker Via “il venerdì di repubblica” Cover

“Cinematic achievement on a high level.”

Director Todd Phillips has gone on the record stating, his film is going to piss off hardcore comic book fans. The upcoming ‘Joker’ movie will not follow any comic book plot lines or continuity for the villain, and will in fact be its very own stand alone film. With that being said, the movie is already garnering praise from select audiences. Cameron Bailey, co-head and artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, went on record with Toronto Sun, hailing the film as “Cinematic achievement on a high level.” Bailey continued on, saying:

“First of all it’s terrific. So it should play on our largest stage. But it’s a really original take on comic book movies and on the Joker character in particular. It’s not based on an existing story, it has one of the greatest actors in modern cinema, Joaquin Phoenix, in the lead, and Robert De Niro is in it as well, one of the best actors that has ever lived.”

Bailey, also went on to say, the film is “Very cinematic,” for a low budget feature.

“Has an interesting tone and approach to it. It’s set in the late ’70s, early ’80s and it feels like it was made then. It’s gritty in its look, it has references to Martin Scorsese’s filmmaking and it feels like a cinematic achievement on a high level. Although it’s working with very populist material, it has great ambition. That’s why it’s a Gala.”

Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ To Reveal The One True Mandarin

Published

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ was announced at SDCC as part of Marvel’s upcoming phase 4 slate. It is set to be the third film in Phase 4 and will be released February 12, 2021. ‘Ten Rings’ will feature Shang-Chi ( Simu Liu ), a Kung-Fu Master, who will face off against, The Mandarin. You heard that right, THE MANDARIN. But not that Mandarin, The real Mandarin.

‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will be the first Asian led Marvel film. It will follow the legendary martial artist on his quest to stop The Mandarin (Tony Leung) on his quest for world domination. The Mandarin is villain that many MCU fans know little about, especially after ‘Iron Man 3’ pulled the old bait and switch by having the Mandarin revealed to be an actor played by Ben Kingsley named Trevor Slattery, whose sole purpose was to divert Stark’s attention from the true villain of the film, Aldrich Killian.

Shang-Chi (Chinese: 尚氣; pinyin: shàng qì; literally: ‘rising of the spirit’) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin, first appearing in Special Marvel Edition #15 (cover-dated December 1973) in the Bronze Age of Comic Books. Often referred to as the “Master of Kung Fu”, Shang-Chi is proficient in numerous unarmed and weaponry-based wushu styles, including the use of the gùn, nunchaku, and jian. In later years, he gains the power to create countless duplicates of himself, and joins the Avengers. -Wikipedia

Adult-Themed ‘Ninja Turtles’ Series Coming To Netflix…?

Published

By

As news continues to flow from the aftermath of San Diego Comic-Con 2019, we’ve come across another potentially exciting piece of news for fans of the worlds most famous, “Turtle Ninjas..” You heard that right, Ninja Turtles Co-Creator Kevin Eastman recently spoke to Comicbook.com about the upcoming 35th anniversary of the original Ninja Turtles comic. Eastman also shed some much needed light on the possibility of the famous foursome returning to the big screen:

“Its really been so fascinating as we watch so many things on the entertainment side of our industry change so much in particular, you know, and I think of, how I enjoyed Daredevil, the Netflix TV series with Charlie Cox and because Daredevil was a huge influence obviously on the Turtles universe, and for me that was my favorite comic growing up. I feel like The Turtles have evolved to this point after 35 years almost, and this sounds weird, but its almost to where they started out where we had the original black and white comic book come out intended for our older audience, and then we developed a cartoon show specifically for a younger audience, and now I feel like we’ve gone back to that place where we have the original fans that are like 30 years old.”

The Ninja Turtles originally debuted as a dark comic that was later transitioned into a more marketable item. Having the Turtles be teenagers, with one liners, that devour all the pizza one can handle. But in todays market, darker and grittier shows are becoming the way to go for comic book adaptations. Eastman went on to explain that having an “Adult-Themed” Turtles Netflix show would be something of interest and a potential progression for the green heroes:

“…I feel like that’s the direction I think we can go and there’ll be enough of an audience to support both. Because we do see a lot of that fans asking when can we get that edgy, you know, Netflix Daredevilish sort of intensity of the Turtles – at the same time, you can balance that with such a wonderful cartoon series like, Rise of the Turtles, the new series, back to that spot where we’re sacred to a much younger audience. So I think that’s hopefully in the future I’d love to see that, really.”

Live-Action Ninja Turtles burst on the scene in 1990 with a box-office gross of $202mill USD. The most recent incarnation hit theaters in 2016, bringing home $245.6mill on a $135mill budget. The turtles hope to get back on track with some sort of a reboot. Only time will tell which official direction the Ninjas go.
