Christoph Waltz Presumably Takes a Villain Role in James Bond 24

Christoph Waltz

Back in April, Oscar nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor was being eyed for the villain role in James Bond 24, the as yet untitled next installment in the long-running secret agent franchise. However, it sounds like that may not be happening anymore as The Daily Mail's reliable James Bond scoop master Baz Bamigboye just revealed on Twitter that Christoph Waltz has signed on for a role in 007's next outing. Now we're presuming that he's playing the villain, though the source doesn't actually clarify, so there's a chance that maybe he's not playing a bad guy after all. But having Waltz as a Bond villain just makes sense. Read on!

'Batman v. Superman' Shooting Some Sequences on IMAX Cameras?

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

We recently just got word that just one sequence in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shot using IMAX cameras, and it turns out another big blockbuster might be using the giant film stock under the radar as well. SlashFilm noticed a tweet from Mike Eisenberg, a Chicago man who owns and operates his own production company, saying, "I can confirm with my own eyes that Batman vs Superman is filming at least the Wayne murder scene with full IMAX film cameras." Now the internet is full of lies, but this seems to be a legitimate observation on the set of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as Before the Trailer corroborated the claim and Batman News also said the same. So just what were they shooting in Chicago?

Jared Leto Might Be Playing The Joker in David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'

Jared Leto / Suicide Squad

Some potentially big news landing late on Friday night, thanks to a report from Jeff Sneider at The Wrap. He says a source from Warner Bros "familiar with the project" has revealed that Jared Leto, coming off of his Academy Award win for Best Supporting Actor earlier this year, is "circling a key role" in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad that might actually be – drum roll – The Joker. Wait, what? Yea that's what it says, which makes some kind of sense considering Suicide Squad is a DC villain round-up movie and it did occasionally include The Joker in the comic it's based on. But casting isn't confirmed yet, it's only a potential for now.

Sam Smith Reportedly Set to Sing Theme Song for 'James Bond 24'

Sam Smith / James Bond

If you know anything about James Bond, it's that the theme song is one of the most iconic parts of the film franchise, and it really sets the mood for the film as a whole. There are some classics out there from films like Live and Let Die and Goldfinger, while more recent efforts haven't quite measure up like the songs for The World is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never Dies (I actually enjoyed the weird track for Die Another Day). Personally, I've found all of the songs done for each Daniel Craig installment of James Bond to be solid, and now we may have word on who will sing the new theme for the untitled 24th spy adventure.

Ewan McGregor Rumored to Be in the Running for 'Doctor Strange'

Doctor Strange / Ewan McGregor

For those who haven't heard, Joaquin Phoenix is officially out of the running for Marvel's forthcoming Phase Three title Doctor Strange. He was in talks, but apparently it just didn't work out. So now Marvel is still looking for a leading man to become the Sorcerer Supreme in the film directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). And in typical internet fashion, a new rumor has popped up from Badass Digest, citing an untested source, that has pegged Ewan McGregor as doing some research for the role by checking out some comic books. But it sounds like he's one of a few contenders.

Spider-Man Rumored to Be Shared by Sony Pictures & Marvel Soon

Spider-Man

Over the past couple days, an interesting but vague story has been circulating about Marvel's plans for The Avengers 3. While there have been rumors that it might be split into two films, the contracts for the actors would make that tricky since most of them don't have enough films left in their contracts to fulfill a two-film split like that. But word on the street is that most of the heroes we've seen in The Avengers so far won't appear in the third assembly of the team, and that they're being saved for something else after that. Details are still too vague to really speculate on what that could happen with Avengers 3, but talks of someone big swinging into the Marvel cinematic universe could shake things up even more, but in a good way. Read on!

Is Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's Next Project 'Indiana Jones 5'?

Janusz Kaminski & Steven Spielberg

Well, here's something that's interesting and a little bit flimsy all at the same time. Ever since Disney picked up the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures to complete their acquisition of properties from Lucasfilm, there have been rumors of both continuing the adventure with Harrison Ford or maybe rebooting the franchise with someone like Bradley Cooper. Neither option has proven to have any solid development, but there's a curious mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a Variety article (via SlashFilm) that gives a crash course in cinematography from some of the top names in the business, and one was Janusz Kaminski.

Viggo Mortensen Rumored for Role in Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'

Viggo Mortensen

Now this sounds like a pretty flimsy rumor, but the prospect is so enticing, that we just couldn't help but bring it to light. The official cast for Quentin Tarantino's latest western The Hateful Eight hasn't been announced yet, and production is supposed to begin early next year. Kurt Russell seems like a lock since he knew the estimated production start before the official news surfaced from The Weinstein Company, and there have been rumblings of Jennifer Lawrence maybe taking a part. Now the latest rumor from The New York Daily News says Viggo Mortensen has been talking with Tarantino about a juicy role. More below!

William Shatner Has a Cameo in 'Star Trek 3' But He Has to Accept It

William Shatner

The reboot of Star Trek was directed by J.J. Abrams, and although he wasn't a longtime fan of the classic sci-fi property, he managed to take fans on a new path with familiar characters while keeping the old mythology intact. There's actually more than a direct connection with the original Star Trek characters (beyond following the alternate younger versions of them) since the alternate future Mr. Spock has popped up in both the 2009 reboot and the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. And now there's a chance for William Shatner to have the same kind of cameo in Star Trek 3, appearing as the alternate Captain James T. Kirk.

Rumor: 'Deadpool' Director Tim Miller Says the Film Will End Up PG-13

Deadpool

While fans should certainly be excited that 20th Century Fox has finally committed to give Deadpool his own feature film in February of 2016, it's time to be cautiously optimistic. In an episode of the Schmoes Know podcast, the resurgence of Deadpool is discussed, and some distressing news came to light. While fans have frequently said that the only way to bring the Merc with a Mouth to the big screen without tainting the character is to make an R-rated film, director Tim Miller has apparently said that they figured out how to make a PG-13 film and still make the most hardcore Deadpool fans happy with the final product.

Rumor: Warner Bros. Now Developing DC's 'Legion of Super-Heroes'

Legion of Super-Heroes

With Warner Bros. staking out two dates every year through 2020 for films based on DC Comics' properties, you can be sure there's plenty of projects in development that we don't know about. While Justice League is expected to be one of the films following Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, along with rumors of standalone films for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman, no one has been very sure just what else might fill the extensive superhero calendar. Now we have an idea of one of the titles coming as a rumor from Latino Review reports Legion of Super-Heroes is out to writers. Read on!

Charlie Hunnam as Snake Plissken in 'Escape from New York' Remake?

Charlie Hunnam

A remake of John Carpenter's revered action thriller Escape from New York has been gestating for years, but no one seems to be able to get it off the ground. The most recent attempt in the works was reported about a year and a half ago with Studio Canal teaming with super producer Joel Silver (The Matrix, Lethal Weapon) and his Silver Pictures banner to start from scratch on the project. Now it sounds like they're making some progress as a rumor from Starlog (via Badass Digest) has surfaced saying that Pacific Rim and recently crowned King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam is the top contender to play Snake Plissken.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' May Introduce a New Team - But with Who?

The Avengers

Now that The Avengers have assembled on the big screen, everyone is very familiar with Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye. But those aren't even the original Avengers, and they're not going to always be the superheroes who assemble to save the world. As Marvel continues to broaden their cinematic universe, they're introducing new characters who will replace the original team eventually. But the question is just who will step up to join the team? Doctor Strange and Ant-Man are on the way, but that's only two people. Well, a new rumor says we might find out next year who else might enter the superhero assembly mix by way of The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Read on!

Rumor: Warner Bros. Pushing Hard Against Humor in DC Comics Films

Why So Serious?

There have been some commenters saying that we don't talk about DC Comics films enough, so here's a provocative rumor that should get the masses talking. HitFix has heard from several different sources that Warner Bros. is making a big push to keep humor out of their forthcoming DC Comics adaptations that have been scheduled to hit theaters through 2020. Drew McWeeney (who isn't prone to just posting any ole rumor) says he keeps hearing a "no jokes" kind of mandate for these films in the DC Comics cinematic universe, and Badass Digest has also echoed those sentiments. But that seems more than a little extreme.
