Superheroes–we mean actors that play superheroes–are uniting! Will Smith and Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s Tom Holland are teaming up for a new movie, an animated spy movie!

Spies in Disguise is the current project that both Will Smith and Tom Holland have been signed onto. Will Smith, of course, is best known for his roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Men in Black, and Suicide Squad. While a newer member of Hollywood’s elite, Tom Holland isn’t someone to be ignored. You might recognize him best from Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Lost City of Z. Now, the two are coming together to work on a brand new animated feature film.

Based on the short film, Pigeon: Impossible, the new animated feature length film will have similar ties to its source material. For those not in the know, Pigeon: Impossible is about a pigeon who somehow gets stuck in a nuclear briefcase, and things just get worse from there. The new feature film should bring a lot more to the table when it comes to both details and storytelling.

An exclusive from Variety has revealed that both Will Smith and Tom Holland will lend their voices over to the film. It will be produced by 20th Century Fox’s Animation department, with the movie currently scheduled to hit theaters in January 2019. The Peanuts Movie helmsman Nick Bruno will call the shots. Spies in Disguise is part of Fox’s ongoing initiative to increase their animation output under new CEO Stacey Snider.

Screen Rant attended a Fox slate event in London where more details were offered. In the Spies in Disguise, Smith will play Lance Sterling, a cocky super spy who is turned into a pigeon by Holland’s inventor Walter Beckett (who has a whole host of cool gadgets). The pair team up with a gang of real pigeons and group of techies to try and stop a Bondian villain in an adventure described as “21 Jump Street meets Skyfall” by the filmmakers.

We were also shown footage from the movie, illustrating the two lead characters. A clip starring Smith depicted his character on a sting operation where he sets up gadget cameras to record his various antics. While fighting villains (that all know his name), Smith’s sleuth uses lobsters and alcohol as weapons. The one focusing on Holland using parkour to escape the clutches of Yakuza enemies, while using a gadget to calculate his jumps. He fails and is flung from a building, becoming trapped outside an elevator by grappling hook. Holland’s character then falls through a restaurant and lands in a palm tree. Smith remarks that Holland can take a beating, to which the youngster quips he learned how to in middle school.

While Spies in Disguise might end up being great (and the filmmakers said to Screen Rant they hope it to be a jumping off point for a franchise), Fox is often behind the likes of Disney/Pixar and other top tier competitors. The quality of Spies in Disguise might derail as the idea of doing more animated films might outweigh the opportunity to create something truly great with these two standout actors. All that being said, the movie still has a long way to go until they’ll be able to experience it. It’s probably best to hold back on negative opinions before the movie actually starts coming together. As of right now, Spies in Disguise is still in the very early development stages, so even more news should be coming soon.

This is going to be good!

Power Rangers was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of 2017. The darker, more realistic take on “five teenage heroes with attitude” and their nemesis, Rita Repulsa, was a true treat to see. Well, Hasbro is back at it again announcing that a sequel to the hit film is in in the works!

 In a recent report from Licensing.org, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said the toy company has big plans for the popular 1990s-era franchise, including a new film.

The Power Rangers brand has a “significant opportunity for growth,” Goldner said in the report. Not a lot of detail was given about the film, which will follow the 2017 Power Rangers movie that received mixed reviews from critics. CNET’s review of that movie notes that while the teen heroes don’t hang out at a juice bar/karate dojo, they “unmistakably” carry the spirit of the cult-favorite show.

Power Rangers fans with an interest in the Mighty Morphin toys and collectibles can mark their calendars for 2020. Goldner said in the licensing report that 2019 is a “transition year” for the Power Rangers brand, with new licensed products and entertainment content coming in 2020.

Lord Zedd and Green Ranger (Tommy Oliver)

This is huge news and we are glad to see the Power Rangers will be back in action. As you may recall, the post-credit scene reveals Tommy Oliver, the sixth and Green Ranger, will be introduced in the next film. There is no word on whether he or Lord Zedd will be the antagonist of the sequel. The Green Ranger was originally and adversary of the other Rangers in the series, and Rita did warn our heroes that others will come seeking the Zeo Crystals. The others are undoubtedly Zedd and other Ranger enemies like The Machine Empire, Master Vile, Divatox, or even Astronema, if the movies progress that far.

We are disappointed we will have to wait until 2020, however, for the sequel. Will the cast still be able to pass for teenagers then? Or is this a time to introduce the next set of Rangers? We will keep you posted on more news at it comes.

KIM POSSIBLE LIVE ACTION MOVIE  actors

Kim Possible made her Comic-Con debut in a surprise way at the end of Disney Channel’s July 21 panel for Big Hero 6: The Series. During the Big Hero panel, the show’s executive producers Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley, and Nick Filippi took a moment to reveal a first look at the upcoming live-action adaptation of Kim Possible, the series which McCorkle and Schooley created in 2002.

Actress Sadie Stanley will give new life to the red-headed hero in a Disney Channel Original Movie premiering in 2019, written by McCorkle, Schooley, and Josh Cagan.

We have to say we are very excited about a live action Kim Possible movie. Women have really been kicking ass in the hero department the last couple of years with characters like Wonder Woman, Elastigirl, Okoye, Shuri, and soon Captain Marvel just to name a few. The actress set to portray Kim is cute, but we were expecting someone who looked slightly older and would be a babe–well, that’s how she is drawn. Madelaine Petsch would have been an awesome choice!

For other casting news, we know Sean Giambrone will play “Ron Stoppable,” Kim’s best friend/sidekick. There is no news, however, on her “man in the chair,” Wade. Nor do we have any casting news for her her villains Dr. Drakken or Shego. We just hope the film does the cartoon the same justice where we see a pretty cool teenage girl saving the world one mission at a time! What do you guys think of the cast thus far? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
