Remember back at Comic-Con last month, when Gareth Edwards teased Godzilla 2? We sure do, and we're still excited about Mothra and the other monsters coming to play. However, Edwards is busy right now working on a Star Wars movie for 2016. So when is Godzilla 2 coming out?
Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures have reportedly reserved June 8, 2018 as the release date for the film, giving Edwards plenty of time. For those keeping track, that is one month after and one month before an untitled Marvel movie scheduled for that year. Warner Bros/DC has movies scheduled for March 23 and July 27 that year, as well, and Marvel has a third film, alongside a Fox and Sony film based on Marvel Comics that year. Phew.
No, Falcon-Cap Won't be in Cap 3
In a bit of "um, yeah, could've figured that out" news, the screenwriters of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, who are now working on Captain America 3, talked about what will and won't appear in the third solo chapter of Steve Rogers' story. One of the "won't" column marks is Sam Wilson suiting up as Captain America, something that is happening in the comics this fall. To anyone who has followed Cap's adventures in the last few years, that shouldn't be much of a surprise - if anything, Bucky taking up the shield would be the next step.
"We wait and see what we'll steal from in three or four years from now!" joked Stephen McFeely in an interview with SFX. "I think the movies can accomodate almost anything, if there's a need," added Christopher Markus. "I think there is a much greater need to shake things up in the comics because that’s a narrative that’s been going on for 60 or 70 years, so you’re going to wind up having to do things to it. Ours has only been off the ground for five or so. So it’s not quite time to start changing things up yet."
As for what will be in the next one, the writers say they hope the tone is "an amalgam" of that of the first two.
The Sinister Six IS coming...
If you don't believe a project like a Sinister Six spin-off movie could ever really come to life, Sony Pictures is letting you know how wrong you are. In a Target-exclusive special feature on the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-ray sold at that store, "Setting up the Sinister Six," Marc Webb and others will talk about the villain team and how they're coming to the big screen.
Drew Goddard is directing the movie, due out in 2016, and this is the most overt early promotion for a film that doesn't have stars, a lineup, or as far as we know even a finished script, as we've ever seen.
Starbuck Not Suiting Up as Carol Danvers (Er, Probably)
If rumors are true and Carol Danvers, as either Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel, shows up in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has wrapped principal photography, then Katee Sackhoff is definitely not playing the character. In an interview with Vulture, the fan-favorite actress who kicked butt as Starbuck in the reimagining of Battlestar Galactica said straight-up that she has yet to have any meetings with Marvel Studios about playing any role for them.
"As of this moment, I have not sat down with anybody from Marvel for any role specifically," Sackhoff said. She did say, of course, that she's open to any role where she gets to "play a strong female that’s a role model," and with actors like Glen Close, Robert Redford, and Michael Douglas involved in recent and upcoming Marvel Studios films, it's hard to think of anyone turning them down at this point.
