Captain America: Civil War Opens This Week
So the big Marvel film of the summer opens this week here in the US; which has already made over $200 million overseas. Our own Robert Meyer Burnett and Amy Dallen got a chance to see it last night finally, so the panel look at what we can expect from the audiences and box office. With additional TV clips dropping as of late, the hype is overwhelming for this panel of Heroes. 
The Batman Stand Alone to Feature Rogue Gallery of Iconic Villains
Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns have complete creative control over the upcoming feature film The Batman, with a new rumor stating that many villains are reportedly going to appear in the new film. The panel discuss the movie versions of The Joker, TwoFace, Scarecrow, Bane, Ras Al ghul, The Riddler, Penquin and Catwoman in all the previous Batman films so now they wonder - who's going to pop up in this new Batfleck universe? Will it be The Joker played by Jered Leto? Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie? Or/and Killer Croc played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje? 
The Punisher Get's a Series Order from Netflix
After an incredible introduction in the second season of Daredevil on Netflix, The Punisher, with an incredibly tough and nuanced portrayal by Jon Bernthal, has been given a full season greenlight at Netflix! Frank Castle will likely be seen in some of the upcoming series like The Defenders and perhaps even Luke Cage and/or Iron Fist (maybe just a cameo). The Collider Heroes panel dig in deep on what they can expect from the new series. 
Robert Downey Jr. & Jon Favreau Returning to Marvel
This past week we have found out that Jon Favreau is interested in returning to Marvel as more than an executive producer on future Marvel projects. We also hear that Robert Downey Jr. is very interested in doing an Iron Man 4... Does this sound like a re-team-up? Could Favreau and Downey collaborate on another Iron Man movie for Marvel?
The Flash In Search of a New Director
Over the weekend, The Flash lost its first time director, Seth Grahame-Smith due to “creative differences.” Now the search is on for a new helmer. After the report, more rumors surfaced stating that James Wan is also possibly abandoning ship from the Aquaman. Then he cleared that up with a well timed picture of him leaning against a giant image of Aquaman. All this led to more speculation about Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder, with rumors that just won't quit about problems between him and the studio over Justice League. What is going on over at DC? Should we be worried?

Collider Movie Talk - Bryan Singer Defends Look Of Apocalypse In X-Men Movie

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 3rd, 2016) Mark Ellis, Jon Schnepp and Dennis Tzeng discuss the following:

-Bryan Singer defends look of Apocalypse

-Legendary Pictures sued for plagiarism on Kong: Skull Island 

-Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell join Scarlett Johansson in Rock that Body

-Batman v Superman 7th highest grossing superhero movie all time

-Jeremy Irons joins Justice League Part One

-New trailer released for Hunt for the Wilderpeople (

-Opening this week (Brought to you by AMC Theatres)

-Mail Bag

When the first look at Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse hit the internet, a lot of fans were less than pleased with many comparing the look to one of the villains from the original Power Rangers series. And Bryan Singer heard you. During an interview with IGN, Singer explained his choices regarding Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse and addressed the fan’s criticism regarding Isaac’s height.

Kong: Skull Island is set to be released next year, but before the people at Legendary Pictures can release a single frame of the movie, they have to address the 800-pound gorilla in the room. Artist Joe DeVito claims he created an entire Skull Island universe surrounding King Kong, with the blessing of the original King Kong creator's family. DeVito claims in July 2014 he came to an agreement with Warner Bros. That same summer, Legendary announced its release of a Skull Island motion picture. DeVito is seeking compensation and credit, seeking at least $3.5 million in general and punitive damages. 


According to The Hollywood Reporter, comediennes Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer are joining Scarlett Johansson in the Sony comedy Rock That Body. The script tells of five friends who get a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette weekend that goes completely off the rails. The all-female comedy is intended to be R-rated and a complement to the studio’s all-female reboot of Ghostbusters. 

Though critics and most movie going audiences didn’t think Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice lived up to the hype, the Zack Snyder film that launched the DC cinematic universe has nonetheless become the seventh highest-grossing comic book movie worldwide. According to The Hollywood Reporter, box office numbers following Sunday’s earnings state that the film has grossed a global cumulative total of $862.9 million with THR noting the film could finish its theatrical run in the $875 million sector. With $325.1 million of that number coming from North American ticket sales, Batman v Superman lands just behind Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 and a few million away from his first Spider-Man movie. 

Zach Snyder is already hard at work on Justice League Part 1 which will find Ben Affleck’s Batman rounding up the members of the superhero team after the events of Batman v. Superman. Despite the fact that production has reportedly been underway for weeks, a lot of fans don’t know exactly which characters we can expect to see reprise their roles from BvS. But thanks to Jeremy Irons, we have confirmation that Alfred will in fact return. 

Before writer-director Taika Waititi releases Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel next year, his latest movie, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, will hit theatres and now, a new trailer has been released giving us a more in-depth look at the story months after it made the rounds in the film festival circuit. The story follows Ricky (played by newcomer Julian Dennison), who’s been making his own rounds in the foster care circuit. After landing in the home of Uncle Hec, played by Jurassic Park’s Sam Neill, a tragedy strikes and the two go on the run or risk Ricky moving on to another family.
