British actor Daniel Craig has apparently confirmed his participation in the next James Bond adventure. Although famously citing that he “would rather slash his wrists”, the actor is now looking to don that famous tux one more time. In a recent interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the actor expressed his interest and confirmed that he will be back as the super-secret agent one last time. No director has been named for Bond 25 yet but it’s expected that the film will be released in cinemas in November 2019.
Leonardo DiCaprio Is Da Vinci
It looks like Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio will have a new project to sink his teeth into. This time around, DiCaprio looks set to star in the upcoming Leonardo da Vinci biopic, which chronicles the life of the renowned painter and scientist. The film will be based off author Walter Isaacson’s book and will see the actor star as the titular character. Isaacson previously penned the Steve Jobs biopic, which was turned into a movie starring Michael Fassbender. No word yet on when production will begin for this biopic but early speculation points to the film being shot sometime next year.
Where The Hell Is Superman?
At some point everyone is wondering what Superman’s involvement in the upcoming Justice League film will be. Noticeably missing from the trailers as well as movie posters, fans are left scratching their heads as to the Man of Steel’s involvement in this superhero ensemble. The latest promo poster release, which showcases the brilliant work of artist Alex Ross also adds to the speculation as it omits the superhero. Will Superman be a major player in the film or will the character be resigned to only a cameo appearance. We’ll find out this November.
Mission: Impossible 6 Production Halted
Tom Cruise recently suffered a serious injury on the set of Mission: Impossible 6. In a stunt that went a bit sideways, the action star suffered a broken ankle, which has now delayed production of the Christopher McQuarrie film. According to reports Mission: Impossible 6 will likely shut down for three months until Cruise heals up. This unfortunate delay is likely to push back the film’s release, which was due in July 2018.
Punisher First Look
Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher. The short one minute clip doesn’t reveal too much but it does show the tone of the series, which is rather gritty. Although there’s not much action to going on, we have to admit that Jon Bernthal does look the part of Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher. Judging by the short look, the Netflix series could suggest an origins tale on how Castle eventually became the gun-toting vigilante. The Punisher premieres on Netflix later this year.
