We know that X-Men and Fantastic Four are on the way, but what are they going to look like? Are they bringing back any familiar faces? Patrick Stewart had this to say.

"I met with Kevin Feige a couple of months ago and we had long, long conversations. And there have been moves and suggestions, which include Charles Xavier."

X-Men Star Patrick Stewart Says He Won’t Play Professor X Again

Now that Marvel Studios has the rights to the mutant team, all the signs are pointing to the X-Men being rebooted in the McU. Given the long history of the Fox franchise, though, most fans would probably say they’d prefer some shared continuity with what’s come before. Everyone’s first choice for Wolverine is still Hugh Jackman, for instance.

Now, we might’ve just got a hint that Marvel is open to bringing back a few familiar faces, via Charles Xavier himself, Patrick Stewart. Speaking with Digital Spy, the Star Trek: Picard star revealed that he had some in-depth chats with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige very recently, with the future of Professor X in the McU definitely being on the agenda.

Patrick Stewart Says He’s Talked With Marvel Studios About X-Men Movies

Sir Patrick Stewart has been stepping back into the spotlight lately, especially with the fast-approaching premiere of his new Star Trek series Picard.

In recent years, he’s been reprising some of his most iconic roles, having returned to the X-Men saga in Logan to give Professor Xavier a babbling, emotional ending. It’d been three years since his previous screen portrayal of the character in X-Men: Days of Future Past and now, three years out from Logan, Stewart’s revealed that he’s had discussions with Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige about the role.

Since Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox, the studio has been given the opportunity to revitalize some of the Fox Marvel properties and the iconic actor confirmed in a recent interview that he and Feige touched on the topic of Professor X when they chatted.

5 Characters Marvel Shouldn't Introduce in the McU (& 5 They Should)

Now that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3, referred to as the Infinity Saga, has officially been completed, the McU fandom can expect fan-favorite characters from the comics to be introduced to the big screen.

We spoke with the showrunner/episode writer about Batwoman's decision to come out, Parker's role, and the history of queer superheroes

This article contains major spoilers for Batwoman episode 10.

For as long as there has been a Kate Kane, she has been an out Lesbian and there have been people mad about it. But on Batwoman, the CW’s version of the character has brought something new to the table as she has wrestled all season long with what it means to put on a mask, keep secrets, and allow others to make assumptions about her after a life of, as showrunner Caroline Dries puts it, “standing in her truth, and being 100% who she is, which is Kate Kane out and proud.”

10 Hilarious Memes Celebrating The New Mutants' Release

The New Mutants is probably the worst positioned superhero movie that’s been made. The film, which has a highly interesting concept of mutants trapped in a facility, thereby making it a horror feature, has been at a disadvantage due to the X-Men film series closing its doors soon enough.

Disney Loses Fox Name with Rebranded 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures

  • MovieWeb
Following the Disney/Fox merger last year, Disney is looking to drop the Fox name from all of its studios. This will effectively be the end of an era for one of the most iconic studios in Hollywood history, which originally formed in 1935 when Twentieth Century Pictures and Fox Film Corporation merged to form 20th Century Fox. Now, it's set to simply become 20th Century Studios as part of the larger Disney empire.

According to a new report, Disney is set to drop the Fox name from the various media assets it acquired in the merger, which went into effect last March. The biggest of these changes will be to the movie studio 20th Century Fox. Moviegoers have been familiar with the name and iconic logo for decades, as the studio was behind hits such as Die Hard, Alien, Star Wars: A New Hope and Titanic, amongst many others. The

Disney Removes ‘Fox’ From 20th Century Fox Logo

David Crow Jan 17, 2020

The times are a-changing with Disney removing 'Fox' from 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight this year.

When news of the Walt Disney Company acquiring 20th Century Fox first went public, many joked “the mouse is going to eat the Fox.” Well, it appears the meal is over since there is no Fox left to be seen.

Less than a year after Disney finalized its acquisition of 20th Century Fox and its related media production assets, Disney has announced that it is removing the word ‘Fox’ from the 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight logos and brands. Going forward, what was once called Fox films will now be known as either 20th Century Pictures movies or Searchlight Pictures movies.

The change will go into effect immediately in 2020, beginning with next month’s Call of the Wild for the bigger former parent studio. The credits and

WandaVision’s Reportedly Bringing Back A Classic McU Villain

WandaVision is by far the most intriguing show on the upcoming Disney Plus slate. It explores Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff’s reality-warping powers, apparently showing her creating an idealized 1950s reality in which she has a family with Paul Bettany’s Vision, who died in the finale of Avengers: Infinity War. Bettany has called the series “super avant-garde and weird,” with Kevin Feige saying it’ll see Wanda becoming the Scarlet Witch in the McU.

Since production began, we’ve heard all sorts of interesting rumors from the set. One is that the show will see the first IP from the X-Men franchise hit the McU, while another is that we’ll see Wanda and Vision’s children and yet more surprisingly, there’s convincing evidence that Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver will return to the McU five years after his death in Age of Ultron.

Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen Reunite At Star Trek: Picard Premiere

With Star Trek: Picard on the eve of its TV debut – well, 6 days away to be precise – its returning lead Patrick Stewart recently attended the show’s London premiere. These events are always magnets for the rich and famous, the stars and celebrities, the hot and the glamorous, and the talentless hangers-on who only turn up for the cocktails.

For those unfamiliar with the man in the grey fedora in the gallery down below, Sir Pat Stew is in the embrace of fellow Knight of the Realm Sir Ian McKellen. And these photos serve as a timely reminder of my more or less unqualified love for the pair.

Perhaps my favourite chat show moment of all time was the hour that they and Hugh Jackman spent in the company of Graham Norton as part of the Logan publicity circuit. It was a wonderfully wholesome piece of TV. McKellen was keen

10 Superheroes You've Never Heard Of... Who Might Still Get A Movie

Marvel has created their empire by doping something unprecedented. They started the McU by focusing on superheroes that only comic book fans and people who watched cartoons in the '90s ever heard of. With no access to the X-Men, Spider-Man, and more, Marvel built their franchise on the back of a hero named Iron Man. Now, over a decade later, Iron Man is a huge name, but at the time of the movie, he was just that hero who wore armor.

Sir Ian McKellen Reveals Private Journals He Kept While Making Lord Of The Rings

It’s hard to imagine it’s been two whole decades since Peter Jackson’s epic The Lord Of The Rings trilogy was released. Still held up to the highest esteem, the fantasy series is just one of those franchises where one can’t help but wonder what it must’ve been like to have been there on set.

Well, wonder no more. Sir Ian McKellen has recently posted to Twitter about how he kept a journal whilst filming all three pics, which he’s now published as a blog. In the tweet, Gandalf himself says he joined the rest of the cast on January 10th, 2000, ready to start the larger-than-life cinematic adventure. And while making the films, he had a journal going that documented his experience.

Morbius Was Originally Supposed To Appear In Blade

Before there were X-Men in movie theaters, before there was Spider-Man, before Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk teamed-up to become the Avengers, and long before Logan, Deadpool and Deadpool 2 proved that R-rated comic book films based on Marvel properties could be financially lucrative ventures, there was Blade. And according to a deleted alternate ending available on the Blu-ray release, the film was also meant to introduce none other than Dr. Michael Morbius, the Living Vampire, in a cliffhanger scene intended to set up the character’s return in the sequel.

Blade director Stephen Norrington played the trenchcoat-clad character, his face hidden beneath a black cloth, in a brief longshot in which the daywalker Eric Brooks and Dr. Karen Jenson spot the figure, who was, accordingly to screenwriter David S. Goyer’s commentary on the scene, explicitly meant to be Michael Morbius, from across a rooftop after defeating Deacon Frost.

No Latino Representation in Hollywood? The La Mayor Has a Plan For That

No Latino Representation in Hollywood? The La Mayor Has a Plan For That
With a goal of doubling Latino representation in Hollywood within 10 years, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on Monday announced the creation of a new initiative, La Collab. The effort, which has the backing of major agencies, studios, and talent, is launching with deals for features, podcasts, and documentaries.

The effort comes amid bleak statistics about Latinos in Hollywood. While Latinos represent one-fifth of the Us population and about 25% of moviegoers, a recent USC Annenberg study found that their representation in the industry has halved over the last decade — from 6% of the entertainment workforce in 2009 to 3% today.

La Collab’s backers want to reverse this trend by connecting Latinos with skill development, promoting collaboration with Latinx creators and top producers, filmmakers, buyers, showrunners, and others in the business.

La Collab is launching with a finance development deal for a feature script with Endeavor Content, a scripted proof-of-concept deal with WarnerMedia’s content incubator OneFifty,
