The Blinkclyro Briefing: Movies | 13.4.2016

The Doctor is in the house

Another day, another superhero trailer is dropped though this time the focus is on Marvel hero Doctor Strange. The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character who seems just as confused as the viewers in a mind bending trailer which dropped early this morning. Relatively little is known about the film other than a) it’s an origin story and b) there’s gonna be a fuck ton of magic. Doctor Strange hits theatres November 4th.

CONFIRMED: Batfleck solo film is a go!

Although the recent Batman Vs Superman was disappointing to say the least, the long expected news that Ben Affleck would be directing his very own film for The Dark Knight has put some faith into the DCU. Warner Bros. chief Kevin Tsujihara confirmed this on Tuesday at CinemaCon and whilst it’s not surprising, those who liked one half of BVS will be overjoyed with the news. No other details are known at this point other than the script is written.

Spidey reboot gets a slick new movie title

Fans went crazy over the reveal of Spiderman in the latest Civil War trailer and many couldn’t wait to see him in his own film despite the disappointment after The Amazing Spiderman 2. Bit by bit, more info about the film is coming out and we now finally have a title. Spiderman: Homecoming is set to swing into theatres July 28th 2017 and will star Tom Holland as the witty crime fighter alongside Jon Watts who will be on directing duties. There are strong rumours that both Iron man and Captain America will be making an appearance due to the title but only time will tell.

And in other news…
