Superhero movies are here to stay–well they are tentatively planned to nearly 2030! Still, one of the biggest showdowns in superhero movie landscape involves Disney as it attempts yet again to purchase Twenty-First Century’s movie and television rights to properties like the X-Men and Fantastic Four. Disney owns the vast majority of Marvel Comics’ movie rights and has worked out a deal with Sony to share Spider-Man. However, it is thanks to two Black superheroes–in part–that Disney really wants the X-Men back!

Sources close to the acquisition are allegedly stating that fans demanding to see Black Panther and Storm’s love affair on the Big Screen are fueling Disney’s fervor to have the X-Men on their roster!

As you may recall, in the comics not are Storm and Black Panther two of the most popular superheroes on the planet, they were for a time romantically involved, eventually married, and even have a daughter in the future. In fact, Storm lost her virginity to him in a flashback that explained the closeness between the two. Although the two heroes are no longer married–catch up on AvX: Avengers vs. X-Men, that is not stopping fans from wanting to see Black Love between the two play out in the movies.

Fans are making it very clear that they will not tolerate The Wakandan King having any love interest besides the X-Men’s resident Weather Witch. Alexandra Shipp, the young actress currently playing Storm in the newer X-Men films, has even stated she wants to see the Storm and Black Panther together.

Well, we are definitely here for this acquisition more than ever! Sure we definitely want to see Storm and Black Panther together, but more so we want the X-Men and Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the Fourth Phase of Marvel beginning after Avengers: Infinity War the timing for Marvel’s merry mutants and First Family to come aboard could not be better.

Ryan Reynolds is going to catch ’em all.

The Deadpool star has signed on to star in Legendary’s live-action Pokemon movie, THR has learned. 

Reynolds joins Justice Smith, who will be seen in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and Big Little Lies actress Kathryn Newton in the movie, titled Detective Pikachu, based on the gaming franchise.

Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) is directing the project, which is due to start shooting mid-January in London.

The concept of Pokemon, which launched with a video game that transformed into a card-collecting, TV and movie franchise phenomenon, sees players acting as trainers who collect cute but powerful monsters called Pokemon in order to compete in battle tournaments.

Pikachu is a species of Pokemon, while Detective Pikachu the character is a peculiar sort from the Pikachu set, a self-styled investigator who is good at finding things. Reynolds will play the titular Detective Pikachu.

We have been Pokemon fans since 1997 and are really looking forward to this live-action adaptation of the Pokemon franchise! Pikachu has been our favorite Pokemon since we saw him take a flock of Spearows in that first episode of the series. Honestly, Detective Pikachu has us so nostalgic we are thinking of dusting off our original Game Boy and cranking out Pokemon Yellow–you know the Pikachu edition where he follows you around–we digress! Look for Detective Pikachu debut sometime next year! In the meantime check out the very first episode of Pokemon below. Pikachu we will ALWAYS choose you!

The cast of Justice League is game to collide worlds with their Marvel counterparts. Amidst the heated debate online (and in real life) among fans regarding which comic book films are better, the DC Films actors are not opposed to the idea of coming together with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a project realizing what a great opportunity it would be to see everyone’s favorite superheroes interact on the big screen.

As comic book movies dominate Hollywood, fans are continuously treated to superhero films from several film studios, but arguably on top of the hierarchy are Marvel and DC offerings. The two companies have had a long-standing rivalry from their days of producing prints and that competition appears to have spilled on the big screen – at least according to fans. The actors and even the company execs (particularly Marvel’s Kevin Feige and DC’s Geoff Johns), however, apparently don’t have any beef with each other, as once again proved by the cast of Justice League open to an MCU crossover.

In a new interview with NewsAsia (check it out above), the ensemble was asked about their thoughts about the aforementioned rivalry and possibly getting together with the Avengers and some of their cohorts. While Ben Affleck and Ray Fisher are a little bit careful with their words, the rest is pumped up with the idea specifically, Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa, who immediately let his imagination run wild saying:

“I would love to be [in a crossover,]” Momoa said. “Hell yeah! I mean like, Hemsworth, I love him. It’s like, to be next to Thor, or to be next to the Hulk. It’s like ‘oh, I’m going to take you out on the water and drown your ass.’”

Cavill, however, poses an interesting point: “It’s been done in comic books and I think once stories start to run out or people feel like they’ve seen it all before, yeah, I think there’s something there in the future,” he said, which makes a lot of sense. At one point, the genre would feel a bit repetitive that film studios would feel the need to shake things up to keep fans invested and what better way to do it than bring all these heroes together for the first time on the big screen? Surely, it would give us the same thrill that we’ve had when we first saw the Avengers or in a few weeks, the Justice League come to life in a theater — just bigger and more impactful. Probably easier said than done, with all the business dealings that everyone involved has to sort out, but it’s not really a bad thing to will it to fruition.

Marvel and DC have yet to collide on The Big Screen, but in the comics the two company’s respective heroes went toe to toe in April and May of 1996! Fans were able to vote on the outcomes of battles between heroes like Superman and Hulk, Batman and Captain America, Thor and Shazam, Storm and Wonder Woman, and even Catwoman and Elektra. Marvel narrowly won from the crossover. Still, before Marvel and DC talk about any crossover, we need the former to sit at the table with Fox and reclaim the X-Men and Fantastic Four! Seeing Black Panther and Storm on the Big Screen together is a must!
