Paramount refused to comment at all on the nature of the trailer but, while we can’t say it’s not Cloverfield 2, odds are it isn’t. Even if descriptions of the trailer make it sound like it wants you to believe that.

“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield,” producer J.J. Abrams told Collider. “The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

Basically, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a movie once called Valencia, a Bad Robot film that’s long been on Paramount’s release schedule for March 11. That movie is directed by Dan Trachtenberg (Portal: No Escape) and stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. They’re all in the trailer.

Though details have long been kept secret about Valencia, the film reportedly tells the story of a girl who wakes up in a basement and is told she can’t go outside because of a chemical attack. The problem is, she doesn’t know if that’s true or not.

Nothing at any stage of this film’s development made it sound like a Cloverfield sequel, so let’s assume it’s not. Why the title 10 Cloverfield Lane? Well if the film largely takes place at a single residence, an address would make sense. And that address could be “Cloverfield” because that’s the name of the exit you’d used to get to Bad Robot in Santa Monica, CA—hence the original movie having that title.

I enjoyed Cloverfield a lot and feel it's one of those films that gets unjustly maligned. While this doesn't look to be a true sequel, i'm looking forward to seeing what it turns out to be.

Ah the days before the internet. When a kid had to be creative in finding spank material. I still remember the day I found a half burned Playboy in a neighborhood park with friends. We tore the remains apart looking for breasts to feast our eyes on.

Kate Moss had some magazine ad with exposed titty when I was like 12 or something. That was my jam for a while. I didn't even have to hide the magazine.

There used to be a natural and necessary transition to this: first erection > underwear catalogue > girl who developed too early in the 7th grade > Playboy > Penthouse > actual girl > Hustler. Now kids go from a funny feeling down there to Japanese Anal Eel porn inside of 8 minutes.

 

I pity the women who have to date guys raised on easily accessible and insane porn.

Anyone doubting my suspicions that Captain America: Civil War is going to be a mess should read this.

http://www.geek.com/news/exclusive-this-is-how-spider-man-will-enter-the-marvel-cinematic-universe-1644745/

So not only is the film going to feature the debut of Spider-Man to this universe, it's going to feature scenes of him crime fighting in a hoodie, Iron Man watching in admiration and then Iron Man visiting parker to recruit him and give him an "advanced" suit. They really should have just called this Avengers: Civil War and not made it the sequel to Winter Soldier. The plot's going to jump all over the place to add strings to expand the MCU worse than Avengers: Age of Ultron did.

yah... you should know better than to believe rumors, most are click bait.


I mean you should have been following James Gunns twitter, he said he'd stop commenting on rumors now but he was debunking rumors left and right for a while there.

When he got fed up, he eventually just posted this...

All right. From this moment on I’m going to stop commenting on any rumors surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, because, eventually, someone is going to come up with a spoiler that has some truth to it. That said, the rumors surrounding Quill’s parentage at the present moment are completely false, and aren’t even close to the truth. I don’t know how people come up with this stuff, but it certainly isn’t through legitimate sources.

Also, I get the desire to get “scoops” on character inclusion and casting choices, etc. But since when is a plot spoiler a “scoop”? Is this really what fandom wants to know? Plot details in movies ahead of time? I got in this business because I love movies, and I think most film journalists are the same way. And spoiling plot details doesn’t add to the enjoyment of the film-going experience. So bravo to those folks out there who don’t partake in this sort of thing.

But, as I said, eventually someone will actually spoil some detail of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. So this will be my last comment squelching a rumor until May 2017. But if you do pick up on some plot detail between now and then, be aware, A) They are likely full of shit, as has been everyone so far who has claimed to have had inside info, and B) We’re creating a film that doesn’t rely on plot twists to be an enjoyable experience. They’re only a very small part of what we’re cooking up for you.



Hell most recently, people were going nuts saying this was the costume Spidey is wearing in CW (designed on a hoody).

then...

Sure it could be click bait, but it seems consistent with all the rumors. Doesn't make it true, but I thought worth posting.

He never says that the rumors of the hoodie costume are false. Just that the one from the picture is not the design. Which is obvious as that's just merchandise to sell to the public.

No, he pretty much meant the print on it isn't the costume because I don't think people thought Spidey would wear a Spidey Hoodie.

And it's fine to post it but to go on another diatribe saying it is another reason the film is going to suck is just reaching.

You are really the only one I see fighting and saying this isn't a direct sequel or that it should just be an Avenger film. I mean you are really going to win this argument out of pure exhaustion alone because you are saying the same none sense over and over again. If you don't see or can't imagine a reason where this is a valid Cap2 sequel then that is your problem. I totally see it even without Avengers 2 and I can imagine at least a handful of scenario where it can all make sense.

Just gon' wave the white flag but it is going to reach stupidity beyond belief once again.

All I could really do is to just ask you stop whining already.

Watching Star Trek: Insurrection on Netflix tonight. Had forgotten how entertaining this one is. It's fun because it doesn't take itself too seriously.

That literally is the rumor going around. That the first custom he would be shown in looks like a hoodie because he has yet to refine it.

I'm reacting to all the rumors. There is more then enough here to believe that where there is smoke there is fire. This film isn't having a fraction of the secrecy around it that Ep 7 TFA had and that film had almost the whole plot leaked before it hit theater.

I'm not the only one. I've had this conversation with friends and have seen it had online. Look back at Age of Ultron. Did it hit you like the first Avengers film did? From what I have seen most have said no. What was one of the biggest criticisms? That they derailed the plot to introduce more of the MCU to audiences and it lost focus. If you think shoehorning the introduction of Black Panther and Spider-man into this film isn't doing the same then I am sorry but you are naive at best.

I love a good dumb sloppy super hero movie. GTOG and Avengers are my favorite films Marvel has done. But I also loved Winter Soldier and respected how they elevated the plot above everything else Marvel has done. So yes I am disappointed they want to make the sequel Avengers 2.5 and use it as another vehicle to expand the cinematic universe.

I was an active reader of Captain America when they did the Winter Soldier stories and when they went into the death of Captain America afterwards. It was great stuff and has loads of quality material for the film writers to farm. I also read Civil War and it was garbage. One of the worst "big events" I have ever read and I know I am not the only one saying that. So the fact that so many people seem to want to give Marvel a free pass for jumping into that instead of mining Capt's mythos for better stories is beyond me. If this is what you want, so be it. I will remain critical of the direction they want to take these franchises.

You are using a rumor (that may or may not happen) as a fact to support your dumb theories on how the movie is already bad, and it is as bad you deciding what was a spoiler or not in the SW thread.

Even the Spidey rumor, it is a fucking rumor! lol8[1].gif Either you are so stupid or just gullible as fuck to actually use these dumb rumors for your arguments.

As i said, all rumors were pointing to GOTG2 script about Starlords dad and all that shit and Gunn shut them all down. But hey, all the rumors are pointing towards those stories so Gunn must be wrong...

I am not being naive, I know they are shoehorning BP and Spidey in this but it could still be good, they do not have to be origins story first all the time.

I honestly do not even know why I waste my time entertaining this idiocy. I don't think I am whining either, your the one who been bitching since the trailer which was badass but all you could see it why heroes punching each other.

Again the root of all of this is you bitching because of a trailer. It doesn't matter if the film is good or not, you're just bitching because of a single trailer!

I mean I could do this all day long, all week long but when it comes to reaching and to say the movie is going to suck because a rumors says so... Well then you calling me naive is the pot calling the kettle...

As I said, I am done with this shit even though you know damn well that you posting your dumb comments (ON AGAIN, A RUMOR THAT MAY NOT EVEN HAPPEN) will trigger a response from me.

Punisher Spinoff Starring Jon Bernthal in Development at Netflix

Netflix is thisclose to pulling the trigger on The Punisher, a new Marvel spinoff series centered on Jon Bernthal’s gun-toting Daredevil vigilante (aka Frank Castle), TVLine has learned exclusively.

Viewers will get their first look at Bernthal’s Punisher when Daredevil ‘s second season drops on Friday, March 18, but the early buzz on the Walking Dead alum’s performance is overwhelmingly positive.

“Viewers watching the show will be rooting for this guy with a gun but we’re also going to force people to second-guess themselves,” previewed exec producer Doug Petrie in a recent interview with EW.com. “Taking lethal justice into your own hands in America in 2015 is tricky s–t.”

For those keeping track at home, this would mark Netflix’s sixth Marvel series, following Daredevil, Jessica Jones, the upcoming Luke Cage, and the in-the-works Iron Fist and The Defenders.

‘X-Men’ Spinoff ‘Hellfire Club’ May Premiere Early 2017;

At the Fox portion of the winter TCA, the network gave updates on several projects, including the X-Men spinoff TV series, Hellfire Club. When asked how soon the show could premiere, Fox CEO Dana Walden said it's possible but unlikely the show debuts this year.

"Unlikely it would be the fall. Potentially midseason but no immediate plans. We’re still working on Hellfire Club. Obviously those executive producers are very busy with the film franchise and the FX show, so not sure."

Hellfire Club will be a period drama, set in the 1960s. The series will be jointly produced by 20th Century Fox and Marvel Television. Serving as executive producers are Evan Katz, Manny Coto, Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Patrick McKay and JD Payne are writing the script from a story first concieved by Katz and Coto.

The Hellfire Club superhero drama is one of two Marvel television projects at Fox. The network is also developing a TV series around Prof. X's estranged son, David Haller.

FX'S LEGION ANTICIPATED TO DEBUT IN 2016; SERIES NOT SET IN X-MEN FILM UNIVERSE

The X-Men-based TV series, Legion, likely will be coming to FX by the end of 2016.

FX President John Landgraf spoke to critics at the 2016 winter Television Critics Association press tour about the new 20th Century Fox/FX/Marvel collaboration, which Fargo's Noah Hawley is serving as showrunner on. Fargo actress Rachel Keller was recently cast in an unknown role on the series.

"We're quite well along. We've had a writing staff working. We've seen not only the pilot but several episodes and we're well in process of casting," he said. "I would anticipate that Legion would go on the air some time in 2016, this year."

Legion centers on the story of David Haller, the alleged son of Professor X who was previously diagnosed with Schizophrenia before realizing his supposed illness was actually something more. Landgraf said this potential series won't take place within the X-Men film universe.

"It's not in the continuity of those films in the sense the current X-Men films take place in a universe in which everybody on planet Earth is aware of the existence of mutants," he said. "The series Legion takes place in a parallel universe, if you will, in which the US government is in the early days of being aware that something called mutants exist but the public is not. I wouldn't foresee characters moving back and forth because they really are parallel universes."

Ok man. dozingoff.gif I've always said that I hope the movie is good, but what we know and what they have shown is leading me to believe otherwise. Yes it could be good. No one here is saying otherwise. I'm speculating it won't be based on the info that we know.

It's not a rumor that they are going to introduce both Spider-Man and Black panther in this film. Knowing this, It doesn't take a genius to realize that this is being done to push and expand the MCU for future films. If you want to ignore that one of the biggest criticisms of Age of Ultron was that they sidetracked the main narrative to do this exact thing with added scenes not directly related to the main narrative then again that's on you.

It's also not a rumor that the film's plot will involve Tony and other heroes suddenly deciding they need to fight their good friends on behalf of the US government. Maybe you think that's a "badass" story line to base a movie on, but I don't. It's as dumb an idea to put on film as it was when they did it in the comics. Remember another one of the recent big events they did AvX? Same shit. They come up with a convoluted excuse for heroes to punch each. I'm freely willing to suspend my belief to great lengths for super hero stories, but these stories hardly ever work on the most basic of levels. Thus i'm highly skeptical.

This is not the direction I wanted them to take the films after Winter Soldier. I've already stated why several times and it's my opinion and I will continue to express it. I was rolling my eyes at the trailer you seemed to get a stiffly for. If you think differently on what has been shown and what we know, that's great. But get off your high horse and stop acting like other people are "dumb" for not agreeing with your eternal optimism on these types of films.
