Comic Movies

New trailer for The Kitchen, based on the Vertigo comic by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle!

Taika Waiti is now on-board for Thor 4 (Th4r) as screenwriter and director, but that also means Akira is on the back burner. While writer Mike Fleming Jr. at Deadline wrote “the word in town that it is a difficult film to cast ethnically at its high budget, in this moment of political correctness,” the initial report at THR said Waiti was already screening actors and the delay is due to script concerns and scheduling.

You’ll see the Power Rangers on the big screen again, but you won’t be seeing the 2017 cast, according to Red Ranger Dacre Montgomery’s recent AMA. [Power Rangers Now]
