The Friday Film News Roundup

Fox "creative consultant" Mark Millar recently spoke to SFX about the possibility of their superhero franchises, the X-Men & Fantastic 4, ever teaming up on the big screen. Millar gave the following quote: "Without question I think you have to see some of these guys showing up in each other’s movies. I think the most exciting thing in superhero movies, until The Avengers came along, was when Nick Fury showed up in Iron Man. Even though it was a guy with an eye patch it was really cool – and I expect we will see more of that." Fox seem to have been planning this for a while now & they are sure to want to capitalise on the success of the Avengers at Marvel and the recently announced Superman vs Batman film over at Warner Bros. Fox's next attempt at box office supremacy, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, will arrive in 2014. Source: THR

Who would play Hulk Hogan in a movie based upon his life? A question no one asked ever, right? Well, the man himself has declared an interest in having Chris Hemsworth or "That guy that did that action movie Thor" to play him in said movie of his life. Hogan seems impressed by the treatment he has seen and has given "two kids that are writers in L.A., hot young writers" the chance to recreate his life for the silver screen.

Films being adapted into television shows are becoming quite the trend now, and the next in line for US network television is Rambo. Apparently Sylvester Stallone could join the team in a creative capacity or even reprise his role as the titular character himself, John Rambo. Whether this can work on television remains to be seen, but personally, after seeing what they did with Hannibal, I believe anything is possible now. Source: Screen Daily

As contenders for the longest movie titles ever, the Pirates Of The Caribbean series has some of the longest. To continue the trend, directors Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg have given the fifth instalment in the series the title of, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Which is a considerably better title than Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 I guess. Source: This Is Infamous
