It’s no secret that the recent attempt at a Fantastic Four reboot failed critically and financially. It’s led to many fans (including myself) wanting another new reboot so we can forget that attempt of a reboot, which would’ve been part of Fox’s Marvel cinematic universe. For this fan-cast, it’s pretty open to where ever F4 ends up – still with Fox or joining the Disney/MCU.
No new year can begin until I share my top 15 anticipated films of 2017! Let’s get started…
Although the 2002 and 2004 films were enjoyable, and have become somewhat of a guilty favorite, they weren’t technically the best…So I’d love to see a new attempt at a live-action Scooby Doo film! WB plans to make an animated cinematic-type universe reboot for Scooby Doo, but I think it’d be fun to see another (better) attempt at a live-action. Perhaps instead of calling it Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc would better suit. But who should play the roles? Let’s fan-cast!
Here it is! Part 2 of the Disney Live-Action movies fan-cast. I created this so there isn’t one giant long post – I figured this would be much easier to separate pre-2000 and post-2000 films. Both will see updates over time as usual and any fan-casts moved from Part 1 to 2 have not been reset/affected.
Here’s the timeline for comic book films coming out next year! We have 3 from Marvel/Disney, 2 from WB/DC, 1 from Fox/Marvel, and 1 from Fox/Icon. There are probably more adaptations out there I’m missing but these are the ones I’ll likely end up seeing. Now the question here is which of these 7 am I looking forward to most? Which will see critical success and which will see box office success? Here’s what I think (and let me know what you think)!
Each year I share a “Looking Forward” piece featuring top movies I’m excited to see as well as the new characters. I wanted to do something a bit different this year and add another piece – news I hope to hear in 2017. Now I can’t guess everything, I’ll probably forget some things, but here’s to what I want to hear in movie news next year.
Now that it has been clarified what spin-off movie Margot Robbie is exec-producing, I think it’s time to do some fan-casting! To clarify, these picks are always a round up of not only my ideas but outside ideas from other fans as well. No other characters have been confirmed for the film other than Harley Quinn, but we can assume Catwoman and Poison Ivy will appear.
Joe Manganiello, long rumored for the role of Slade Wilson, has officially been announced for the role by Geoff Johns. Recently, Ben Affleck took to social media a test footage of Deathstroke all suited up, but it wasn’t clear who was under the mask. Many guessed Manganiello as he followed Zack Snyder (MoS, BvS, JL) and David Ayer (Suicide Squad) the same day. It’s confirmed he will be in the Batman solo film but it isn’t clear if he will cameo in Justice League.
