2017 has unquestionably been the Year of Wonder Woman. With her first feature film emerging as the Biggest Movie of Summer 2017 and settling multiple records, including Highest Grossing Film by a Female Director (Patty Jenkins), Wonder Woman has never been more iconic and popular with mainstream audiences. With the new film Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, Princess Diana of Themyscira adds another unique accolade to her 2017 list of accomplishments: a film about her creator and her origins releasing in the same year as her first solo blockbuster film.
Ryan Reynolds may have accidentally given fans a sneak peek at Wade Wilson’s X-Force costume in Deadpool 2. After the record-breaking success of the first film, Deadpool is set to have an even bigger presence in the X-Men universe. With a sequel ready for theaters next year, the Merc with a Mouth will also co-star in X-Force alongside Cable (Josh Brolin) soon after, and finish out a self-titled film trilogy with Deadpool 3.
Early box office projections for Thor: Ragnarok put the film on track to easily enjoy the Thor franchise’s best opening weekend yet. Marvel Studios is changing things up for the third installment in the Thor movie series. They’re moving away from the Shakespearean approach of the previous films and moving completely into the cosmic realms that Thor is meant to roam. To do this, director Taika Waititi joined the project to further differentiate Ragnarok‘s look and tone from the previous films… and he was also given the franchise’s best cast, too.
James Gunn and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have collaborated with Baywatch legend David Hasselhoff to make a fun retro music video for original soundtrack song “Guardians Inferno.”
Deadpool 2 director David Leitch explains why Fox and Marvel were okay with Josh Brolin playing both Thanos and Cable. And when it was originally announced back in 2014 that Brolin would be playing the Mad Titan Thanos, the actor hadn’t just landed the role of another comic book movie villain, but the villain that Marvel Studios was planning to center its entire cinematic universe around. As such, many fans assumed that Brolin’s chances of playing any other iconic comic book movie villains or heroes — anytime soon at least — were completely off the table, as he was set to play Thanos until at least 2019 when The Avengers 4 is released.
