"Avengers: Infinity War" To Cost One Billion?

Dark Horizons - 2 hours 49 min ago

The upcoming biggest event in the Marvel Cinematic Universe looks like it will also have the biggest bill of any film ever made.

A new report at Bleeding Cool says that in talking with "very well sourced comic book film insiders in New York bars last night," they were told that the upcoming two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" saga will have one gigantic price tag - a combined production budget of one billion dollars.

The report claims around $400 million of that is for screenwriters, directors, producers and principal cast members, with Robert Downey Jr. to get essentially "half of the actor budget". The report comes as there is no script yet completed or even a finalized plot in place.

If correct, this would easily be the biggest budgeted production of all time - well ahead of "The Hobbit" trilogy at $745 million and the single most expensive film to date - "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" at $378 million.

New "Jessica Jones" Trailer Teases Purple Man

Dark Horizons - 2 hours 49 min ago

After several mostly fun teasers for Netflix and Marvel's upcoming "Jessica Jones" TV series, the streaming service has now released a new one that shifts the focus away from the titular former superhero turned investigator and towards the show's main antagonist - The Purple Man (David Tennant).

It's a surprisingly effective and creepy little piece, not surprising as the villain himself is one of the most sinister in Marvel comic-dom - his body produces a pheromone that allows him to control others actions by verbal suggestions, including committing acts against their will. Essentially a very effective form of mind control. "Jessica Jones" premieres on the service on November 20th.

George Miller On His Rejection Of Superman

Dark Horizons - 2 hours 49 min ago

Filmmaker George Miller has already quashed those rumors that he's under consideration to direct the "Man of Steel" direct sequel, confirming in interviews that though some early discussions did happen regarding DC Comics properties he might want to tackle - he revealed he wasn't interested.

Of course Miller had some big plans for DC Comics properties a few years ago with his cancelled "Justice League" film. That film had D.J. Cotrana slated to play Superman/Clark Kent, a character that Miller finds challenging to embrace. Speaking with IGN recently, he elaborated on his issues with Superman as a character and how he would've fitted into Miller's JL:

"I think its been said many times before: he's potentially a very boring character because he has no faults, so you really have to find his demons really to get an internal conflict going. You've really got to do that. Whether that's by an external agency or something deep inside himself. You need that conflicted character.

That's what made the Greek gods so great. I mean they were jealous, vengeful, hubristic. They had all these things going for them. I think that's why Batman's such an interesting character because he's human, so he's just like us. He's relatable, rather than someone who's just perfect.

And in terms of what we would've done, clearly we weren't going to fly Superman and Wonder Woman on wires, they were going to be C.G., but again you're working your butt off to make it not look like C.G.. Ken Ralston – who's a great, great visual effects artist – was going to be doing a lot of that. The WETA stuff at that point was mainly in the practical costumes and the effects."

Miller also re-affirmed a statement that he's seeking a small film as his next project, and that the next "Mad Max" film will be some time off if it goes forward.
