TOP NEWS STORIES:
-Marvel has moved the release dates of their Phase 3 films around, apparently prioritizing the new Spidey picture and the Ant-Man sequel beyond that of Captain Marvel and Inhumans. Personally, this isn’t that big of news, but for those really expecting an Ant-Man sequel, it will release in 2018. Next year’s releases include Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange.
-Daniel Craig states that he’d rather ‘slit his wrists’ than play James Bond again… This comes as a bit of shock, especially considering how well Spectre appears to be positioned to be one of the best films of the year. Craig has stated publicly that he thinks the movie will be good, but appears ready to let the role go, after 4 movies and a bad injury on set this past year.
ACTOR IN FOCUS: BEST AND WORST OF…MICHAEL FASSBENDER!
