Cast This: Case in Neuromancer (from Deadpool director Tim Miller)

William Gibson 's crucial 1984 futuristic novel NEUROMANCER has been wildly influential over the years  -- everything from movies like THE MATRIX and GHOST IN THE SHELL to countless videogames, comics, books, TV shows and real technology owes an incalculable debt to Gibson's seminal cyberpunk story. But despite its undeniable impact, an actual movie adaptation of...

Cast This: Ivan Drago's son in Rocky spinoff Creed 2

It's not an exaggeration to say that the ROCKY movies were inconsistent in presenting memorable opponents for Sylvester Stallone 's "Italian Stallion" to face in the ring. The first ROCKY and its sequel gave us Apollo Creed ( Carl Weathers ), who went from rival to respected friend, and ROCKY III gave us a straight-up cartoonish villain thanks to Clubber Lang ( Mr. T...

Cast This: Captain America

Whoa, now, waitaminnit -- cast Captain America?!? You may be thinking "Hey slappy, we've got a perfectly good Captain America already, and his name is Chris Evans !" Indeed, Chris Evans has expertly embodied Marvel's star-spangled hero since 2011, when he first subjected himself to the Super Soldier serum and duked it out with WWII villain Red Skull in CAPTAIN...

Cast This: Carnage (in Sony's Spider-Man spinoff Venom)

Before Spider-Man could swing into his own solo Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure with SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING , Sony was already preparing a series of movies starring the wall-crawler's comic book supporting characters, beginning with supervillain/antihero VENOM . Tom Hardy will wear the living black suit with the flailing tongue, but there seems to be some confusion as...

Cast This: Marvel's She-Hulk

With the box office success of WONDER WOMAN , hopefully DC Comics' amazing Amazon will open the floodgates for even more adaptations of strong comic book superwomen who are still awaiting the live-action treatment, including a personal fave: Marvel's feisty jade giantess herself, She-Hulk. TANK GIRL director Rachel Talalay (who furthered her comic book bona fides with...

Cast This: Black Cat and Silver Sable (Spider-Man spinoff)

Spider-Man finally joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in his third live-action movie iteration, but we may not be able to say the same for some of his supporting characters. Sony Pictures (which has been the superhero's cinematic home since Tobey Maguire crawled onto screens in 2002) is launching a series of Spidey-related movies that will include Tom Hardy as...

Cast This: Geralt of The Witcher (Netflix series)

As we continue to wait for a great movie adaptation of a video game (how many of us thought ASSASSIN'S CREED might finally break the trend?), one popular game series -- or at least its source material -- is moving to the small screen instead. Rather than trying to condense the extensive realm of the Continent and its bestiary of horrors into a feature-length movie, the epic...

Cast This: He-Man (Masters of the Universe)

Over the past decade, Hollywood nostalgia for famous properties from the 1980s has given us (among other things) a seemingly endless live-action TRANSFORMERS franchise, a trio of SMURFS movies, a couple of big-screen G.I. JOE missions and one JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS. But one guy who can't seem to get a break is He-Man. In the thirty years since shirtless Dolph Lundgren battled...

Cast This: Adam Warlock (Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3)

Even with the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding further into the far reaches of the galaxy, there's one major cosmic character (that Marvel has the rights to) who has yet to make the leap from the comic pages: Adam Warlock is still waiting for his big-screen introduction. Writer-director James Gunn has stated that Warlock is one of his favorites, and had originally...

Cast This: Batgirl

The number of big-screen adaptations of DC Comics superheroes continues to grow... even if the actors who will portray many of them remains a mystery. Batgirl now joins the list of as-yet-uncast DC characters that also includes Nightwing , Catwoman , Poison Ivy , and Hal Jordan and John Stewart of the Green Lantern Corps. It was recently announced that "Buffy the...

Cast This: Snake Plissken (Escape from New York remake)

An update of John Carpenter 's ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK has been threatened several times over the course of a decade, initially with Gerard Butler planning to wear the eye-patch as iconic badass Snake Plissken. Directors like Len Wiseman , Brett Ratner and Breck Eisner briefly sat in the director's chair before departing. Those early attempts ultimately crashed like...

Cast This: Commander Shepard of Mass Effect

The new sci-fi videogame MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA is about to be released to consume the majority of my available time, much like the MASS EFFECT trilogy that preceded it. A movie based on the original space epic series has struggled to become a reality. An adaptation was announced way back in 2010 but the project remains languishing in development hell, undoubtedly in part...
