Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales

Disney was all set to sail the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise to a new horizon without the pricey Johnny Depp in tow. They first brought in Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen a brand new script that would have rebooted the series.

Disney’s live-action production president Sean Bailey described the script as a “kick in the pants.” But now it looks like the film isn’t happening at all as Reese and Wernick are off of the project. More on the report below.

Rian Johnson Directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Late last night, a number of clickbait sites ran with a report that said The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be walking away from his own trilogy of Star Wars films due to creative differences.

With movie sites and social media quickly reacting to the rumor, Johnson himself took to Twitter to squash the rumor and confirmed that he will be working on the trilogy as soon as he is finished working on Knives Out. More on the report below.

Aquaman The Trench Spinoff

A good DCEU film is hard to come by, especially when it is based on one of the cheesiest and easily mocked DC heroes. But James Wan was able to pull off the impossible with Aquaman. Not only is it a hit with critics and audiences, but it was more than enough of a box office success for it to spawn a developing spinoff.

New reports confirm that an Aquaman spinoff titled The Trench is being developed based on the fanged amphibious creatures of the same name which pursued Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) towards the deepest and darkest part of the ocean. More on this below.

Lauren Shuler Donner On The Future Of ‘Deadpool’ and The Rest Of Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Franchises Under Disney

Deadpool 2 Trailer

Last year, the Department of Justice approved The Walt Disney Company’s $71 billion offer to acquire Fox’s entertainment assets, including television and film properties. The news was a cause for celebration for Marvel fans as the move meant that X-Men and Fantastic Four characters would finally be able to play in the Marvel Studios sandbox.

However, this also meant that the current X-Men franchise, including its many spinoffs like Deadpool and the yet-to-be-released The New Mutants, was in serious jeopardy of no longer continuing or being rebooted. Deadpool, a raunchy superhero with a debaucherous behavior, doesn’t quite fit into what Disney has done with the MCU and the family friendly films they release.

Long-time X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner spoke about passing the franchise to their new owners, Disney. She also addressed its future, as well as the future of Deadpool and when The New Mutants will be released. More on the report below.

Hobbs and Shaw

Universal Pictures may have released the first trailer for Fast and Furious Present: Hobbs And Shaw this past weekend, but the studio is still revving up the spinoff’s marketing campaign with a Super Bowl spot. The studio has had a presentation showing off some of their upcoming films during the big game, so it should come as no surprise that we are seeing a spot for the spinoff. I’d just never expected that we’d see one so soon. Check it out here below.

Hobbs and Shaw

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham may be friends off and on the set, but when the cameras are rolling for a Fast and Furious film, their respective characters are anything but. Now, the franchise is going in a new direction by launching a brand new spinoff, with the first being called Fast And Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw. This can only make things more complicated for the two titular characters as they are now forced to “perform outside of the system” to capture a dangerous cybernetically enhanced anarchist named Brixton (Idris Elba). Check out the full trailer for the latest spinoff here below.

Dwayne Johnson in The Fate of the Furious

Though Dwayne Johnson wasn’t a part of the Fast and Furious franchise from the beginning, his star power has helped it become what it is today. In fact, he has made it so popular that more and more franchises are coming out, with multiple spinoffs on the way.

Now, Johnson has released a very small trailer teaser for the franchise’s first spinoff Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. In it, Johnson will reunite with Jason Statham, both of whom are reprising their respective titular roles. Additionally, the actor spoke about how he may not appear in Fast and Furious 9, but recognizes that his character has a score to settle with Dom (Vin Diesel). More on the story and the teaser video below.

Birds Of Prey Image 18

It looks like we are getting our first cheeky sneaky peeky look at Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – yes, that’s the actual title of the film starring Margot Robbie, who is reprising her role as Harley Quinn.

Although the film is still more than a year away from its release, a teaser – if you can call it that – showing the entire cast in full costume, has been revealed. If anything, it looks more like a fun music video with heroes and villains letting loose or standing in heroic or villainous poses. Check out the full teaser below.

Michelle Rodriguez

Judging by the lack of Fast and Furious sequels, the franchise will continue to stay in the race by releasing spinoffs. The first will reunite Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the Hobbs and Shaw spinoff. And now it appears that there will be a female spinoff as well.

Vin Diesel took to social media to confirm that Nicole Perlman (Captain Marvel), Lindsey Beer (Sierra Burgess Is a Loser), and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider) will be penning a female spinoff that will presumably focus on Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and the surviving female members of the Fast and Furious family.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Black Widow Scarlett Johansson

This week, a new study showed that female-led films have outperformed male films at the box office, proving that there are audiences who are interested in seeing female characters at the lead. The number of female directors taking the helm of films has increased as well, with many of them going behind the camera for a variety of genres. However, it looks like there are some studios who do not have faith in some female directors.

Zama director Lucrecia Martel, who was among the frontrunners to direct the Black Widow currently being developed, reveals why she turned down Marvel Studios’ long-awaited standalone film. In a new interview, she says she turned down the project because she learned that she would not be overseeing the action scenes. More on the report, below.
