Wesley Snipes Has Already Met With Marvel About Blade 4!

| Filed under: Film FlickersWesley SnipesComic BooksComic-ConBenedict Cumberbatch

no title

Avengers may rule the box office, but when Blade came out way back in 1998, there was no Marvel Studios, no Cinematic Universe, not even a Spider-Man!

And still, the obscure comic book about a half-vampire who killed vampires became a successful enough movie to launch a whole trilogy!

But with Wesley Snipes' legal issues, a change in ownership, and a total reimagining of Marvel movies, we never thought we'd see part four.

That is, until Wesley himself spilled that he had met with Marvel on the subject!

In a pre-Comic-Con interview released Thursday, Wesley was asked about the possibility of returning to the Blade franchise, and he revealed:

Alan Rickman Gets Jimmy Fallon To Tell The High Pitched Truth & Then Jimmy And James Taylor Sing Two James Taylors On A Seesaw! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: Harry PotterJimmy FallonLate Night TVBenedict Cumberbatch

There aren't many better voices in Hollywood!

Don't get us wrong, both Jimmy Fallon and Benedict Cumberbatch do a great Alan Rickman impression, but there's no better than Professor Snape himself!

Apparently the Harry Potter alum caught wind of Fallon and Cumberbatch having a "Rickman Off" where they compete to see who can impersonate the 69-year-old actor the best!

Well Rickman wanted Jimmy to apologize and tell the truth, so what better way than to use the truth telling machines — or helium filled balloons — and speak in high pitches?!

If that wasn't HIGHlarious enough, as an added bonus, Jimmy joined musical legend, James Taylor as they both hopped on a seesaw and sang a "Two James Taylors On A Seesaw!"

You gotta ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing clip for yourself (below)!

Chiwetel Ejiofor Will Play The Katy Perry To Benedict Cumberbatch's Taylor Swift In Dr. Strange! Get The Villainous Deets HERE!

| Filed under: Film FlickersComic BooksBenedict Cumberbatch

no title

Months ago, Chiwetel Ejiofor was rumored to have an unknown part in Marvel's magical superhero movie Dr. Strange.

Now not only has the casting been confirmed, but his part has been revealed as well!

Much like the gender-switched casting of Tilda Swinton, Marvel have cast the best person for the role — and ended up with even more diversity!

Chiwetel will play villain Baron Mordo, another sorcerer who is threatened by Strange's success. Basically, they have a real Katy Perry/Taylor Swift Bad Blood thing going on.

The role will reteam Ejiofor with his 12 Years A Slave costar Benedict Cumberbatch.

Two Oscar nominees chewing the scenery and blasting each other with magic? Sounds like a party! We'll have to reserve a seat in theaters on November 4, 2016!

Tilda Swinton Joins Marvel's Doctor Strange As This Traditionally Male Character!

| Filed under: Film FlickersComic BooksTilda SwintonBenedict Cumberbatch

no title

Marvel is taking another step towards diversity - though they're clearly sticking with that longterm plan of only employing fabulously talented people!

They're doing both those things by hiring the amazing Tilda Swinton!

The We Need To Talk About Kevin star is reportedly joining Benedict Cumberbatch in the magical Doctor Strange!

[ Related: Michael B. Jordan Blasts Racist Internet Trolls Who Criticize His Fantastic Four Casting! ]

Tilda is apparently set to play Strange's immortal mentor The Ancient One.

The character is traditionally depicted as an old bearded man, but after they couldn't find the right fit, Marvel decided to cast a wider net and go with a bolder choice!

Innerestingly, this will be the SECOND time Tilda has taken on the role of a previously male character in a comic book movie; in 2005 she played the archangel Gabriel in the Keanu Reeves version of Constantine.

Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson and is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
