The Rock is Doc Savage!
Yes, this man is literally in everything, and that’s totally okay for the Collider Heroes panel. The Rock is Hobbs, he’s in Baywatch, he’s Black Adam, he’s in some new Ludlum Cinematic Universe and now he’s Doc Savage in writer director Shane Black's next film after he rocks the new Predator! Doc Savage is indeed the very first super-man, introduced in the pulp magazine that brought us The Shadow, and The Phantom. In fact many say Doc Savage was the inspiration for Superman! The Rock announced the casting via his Facebook page saying that the #1 reason he is most excited... is because "HE'S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!" The panel talk all about the Doc Savage film and what The Rock and Shane Black will bring to the adaptation. 
X-Men: Apocalypse Box Office and the Future
X-Men: Apocalypse opened here in the states to a solid $65 million, much less than was expected; with mixed critical reviews and audience word of mouth affecting the box office. Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg have been very vocal about the upcoming X-men, New Mutants, Deadpool and Wolverine films and what they hold for the future. The panel go into detail about the future of the mutants over at Fox and look at what we might be able to expect from the X-men franchise.
Lex Luthor Returns for Justice League
Jesse Eisenberg let people know over the weekend that Lex Luthor will be returning in the Justice League film, currently in production. Though details were pretty scarce on just how involved he will be in the movie, Eisenberg did confirm his return, saying he's excited to be a part of the new movie and to get his turn. 
Captain America: Hydra Agent
Marvel did a massive shake-up for their Captain America comics line, revealing that Steve Rogers betrayed his team saying “Hail Hydra” in the last panel. The news was heard around the world, to noticeably mixed reactions. Even the writer was getting death threats! Every single person on social media it seemed was weighing in with their own opinions and so, the Heroes panel offer their own thoughts and look towards the future of the series and how it might affect the MCU. 
Rosa Salazar Cast as Battle Angel: Alita
The much talked about Manga comics adaptation has found its Alita in actress Rosa Salazar. The film is going to be directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, who is currently busy directing four consecutive Avatar sequels. The panel look at the casting news and wonder what a Battle Angel movie will look like on the big screen!

After the long holiday weekend, it’s time for the weekend box office report brought to you by our friends at AMC theatres. Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse and Disney’s Alice Through the Looking Glass squared off over Memorial Day weekend with a clear winner being crowned in X-Men: Apocalypse. The latest mutant adventure topped the weekend earning $65.3 million dollars over three days and $80 million over four days for an easy No. 1 spot. The other wide release, Alice Through the Looking Glass, took in $26.9 million over the three-day weekend, with a total of $34.1 over the four-day weekend for the No. 2 spot; a not so favorable start for a film with an $170 million production budget.  Sony’s The Angry Birds Movie took in $18.7 million for the three day and $24.6 million in four days for the No 3 spot, bringing its domestic total to $66.3 million. Captain America Civil War took the No 4 spot with $15.1 million in three-days and $19.4 million for the four-day weekend. Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising rounded out the No. 5 spot, dropping a steep 58% for $9.2 million in three-day sales and an $11.4 million total for the four-day weekend.
Some major shake-ups happening in the world of James Bond. According to a report from Birth Movies Death, Tom Hiddleston is in talks for the 25th James Bond film. At the same time, Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes, ruled out a return to the director chair, telling reporters at the Hay Festival of Literature in Wales that he thinks its time for somebody else to take over directing. Current Bond actor Daniel Craig has yet to confirm his departure from the iconic role, with previous reports claiming the actor turned down a $68 million dollar offer to stay on - after he previously said he would rather "slash my wrists" than reprise the role. BMD also states that Hiddleston is in 'advanced talks' to take over from Craig.
Dwayne Johnson recently finished his R-rated version of Baywatch, and is currently filming Fast 8 (with producer rumblings that his Hobbs character will get his own solo spinoff film soon). He is also attached to a Jumanji reboot, and a San Andreas sequel… Now, thanks to his own Facebook page, add one more title to the list. Over the Memorial Day weekend, The Rock confirmed he is set to star in Shane Black‘s Doc Savage. 
More news for the Rock, Production on Fast 8 is well underway and now The Rock’s government bounty hunter Luke Hobbs has reported to the set. Johnson took to his social media, as he always does, to unveil the first look at the character; teasing a very different version of Hobbs than we’ve seen before. The new movie is directed by Straight Outta Compton’s F Gary Gray and stars Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gisbon, and Kurt Russell. The movie opens in theaters on April 14, 2017.
Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to Kingsman continues to add impressive talent to its roster, with Jeff Bridges the latest actor announced to be joining the cast. Bridges let the world know he was coming on board, sharing a poster from the movie on his official Twitter account. Kingsman: The Golden Circle will see Taron Egerton reprising his role as the now-Kingsman Eggsy along with Mark Strong as his trusted tech support Merlin. 
While the DC Extended Universe goes through a bit of a shake-up behind the scenes, filming on the Batman v Superman follow-up Justice League continues. Production on the Zack Snyder-directed team-up got underway in London two weeks after Batman v Superman hit theaters, with most of the main cast, naturally, confirming a return - with one part in particular not being announced, that of Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. But now, we have an official confirmation from Eisenberg himself. Speaking at MCM London Comic-Con over the weekend, Eisenberg revealed that he indeed has a role in Justice League.
