The new Fantastic 4 cast has been announced: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell will be playing Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and The Thing.

Marvel has revealed a short list of potential Dr. Strange Directors: Mark Andrews, Nikolaj Arsel, Dean Israelite, and Jonathan Lavine.

Guardians of the Galaxy shows us our first trailer with Christ Pratt as Starlord. It shows us how different the film will be than previous Marvel films, and how it could possibly lead us into Avengers 3.

Batman v. Superman director Zack Snyder is looking for a “young, black, mid 20s, physically fit actor” for a small role in the upcoming film. Speculation suggest this could be for Cyborg. Snyder has previously met with Michael B. Jordan, who will also star as the Human Torch in the new Fantastic 4 reboot.

Warner Brothers is planning to give us Space Jam 2, but featuring Lebron James rather than Michael Jordan this time. I usually don’t give opinions in this section, but this sounds like a bad idea.

Jai Courtney will play Kyle Reese in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis. This film will take us back to the story of the original Terminator and feature Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Will Smith turned down the opportunity to star in the sequel to Independence Day, and will instead star in Brilliance.
