While shooting for Jurassic World is underway in Hawaii, Colin Trevorrow recently spoke with EMPIRE Magazine about the film and confirmed that sequels for the film are already planned and has showed interest in directing. 

“If they’ll have me”

We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot,” the director/co-writer revealed. “We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”

Trevorrow went on to talk about future characters that he has planned to span across the arc of films, one in particular being X-Men: Days of Future Past, Omar Sy.

“He’s essentially Chris Pratt’s best friend,” he said of the Sy character. “They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”

Also Trevorrow also confirmed that he will be using the animatronic dinosaurs and talked more about the set up of the film.

“It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time", he explained, "and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?”

That is correct we are going to have two separate The Jungle Book remake films. It's going to be a lot like when Mirror, Mirror and Snow White & the Hunstman came out in the same year. Currently both Andy Serkis (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and Jon Favreau (Elf, Iron Man) will both be directing a Jungle Book remake for Warner Bros and Disney respectively.

Now The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) is in final negotiations to voice Rakcha the wolf mother who adopts Mowgli into her wolf pack. While Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers, Her) who has already lent her voice to this years best original screenplay Her, is in early discussions to voice Kaa the hypnotizing python.

They both if signed will join Idris Elba who is already signed onto voice Shere Khan the man-eating tiger.

Variety got the scoop that the writing duo Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman behind the rebooted Star Trek, Transformers, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and TV hit Fringe are officially parting ways. It will not be based off any cruel judgement between them but so they can grow as directors in their separate careers. The two will still work together on TV projects...

Roberto Orci is currently working on Star Trek 3 script and maybe called upon to direct. While Alex Kurtzman is looking to Sony's Venom spin off film as director.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuts this May

Avengers Reassemble! Today, both Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. have confirmed via their respective Twitter pages that The Avengers: Age of Ultron begins filming with the full cast today. That is Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlet Johannson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), and Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man!

It's unknown if newcomers Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver) or Paul Bettany (The Vision) is also on set.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron hits next May

After announcements that Masters of the Universe and Jem & the Holograms were getting the live-action reboot treatment it was only a matter of time before Flash Gordon was announced. Last week Film Divider actually broke the scoop but was then corroborated by The Hollywood Reporter that 20th Century FOX has acquired the rights to the project after Sony failed to get it off the ground in 2008. Scribes J.D Payne and Patrick McKay have been brought on to pen the script.

Flash Gordon is based on the classic 1930's comic and corny 1980's movies.

Flash Gordon release date is TBA

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 has swung into theatres all over the United Kingdom and Australia, but the film is yet to hold its premiere in the US. To promote the film in the UK, stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx sat down and answered some questions from Britains' youth. The stars of the film were answered some truly awesome questions by some of the youngest Spider-Man fans. Watch as Andrew makes up why Spider-Man's colours are red and blue; plus, does Emma Stone "like Andrew in real life?" you can find all that and more in the video below! 

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theatres everywhere May 2nd.

With Marvel's most recent film Captain America: The Winter Soldier smashing box office numbers everywhere, Marvel seem to be on a roll as of late. Earlier today, Iron Man star, Robert Downey Jr, revealed via his official Twitter that he has begun filming his scenes for next summer's Avengers: Age Of Ultron. While filming has already begun in South Africa and Italy, Downey's first scene appears to be under ground in a yet-to-be revealed location. This film marks the sixth time Downey has appeared as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it begins his brand new $50 million contract.  You can check out the tweet below! 
Today a new casting for the highly anticipated Avengers sequel was revealed. Wanna take a guess who it is? Is it Chadwick Boseman? Is it Jon Hamm? Close! It's actually original Hulk actor, Lou Ferrigno. Ferrigno brought the Hulk to life in the 1970s television The Incredible Hulk. Since then he has voiced the Hulk in every film, and this time it is no different. 

Avengers: Age Of Ultron hits theatres everywhere April 29th, 2015.

Today, Daniel over at The Daily Superhero got a new tip on the production status for Marvel's Ant-Man. With most of the cast set in place it seemed production was going right on schedule. Now according to his scoop it seems that filming has indeed been pushed back 2 full months from May to mid-July:
According to one of The Daily SuperHero's production sources, Ant-Man's start date for has been pushed back from late May to mid-to-late July. No details were provided besides the slight delay of filming. This information is coming from the same production source who accurately told me that Batman vs. Superman would not start filming in February—as many sites reported and claimed it would start, even after its release date delay—and it would begin in April, which is accurate since they are ready to start any day now.
Now since this has not come down through the trades take it with a grain of salt. The Daily Superhero goes onto simply speculate it maybe last minute rewrites on the script or that the brand new Pinewood Studios ATL is currently not ready to be filmed on just yet. But again that's just speculation...
