James Franco may be the next star to join Fox's X-Men universe.

 

The multihyphenate is in negotiations to play Multiple Man in a stand-alone being developed by X-Men producer Simon Kinberg, godfather of Fox's universe based on the uncanny Marvel mutants.

 

Allan Heinberg, one of the writers behind Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman, is set to pen the feature. Kinberg would produce under his Genre Films label, along with Franco and his Ramona Films.

 

Jamie Madrox, also known as Multiple Man, has the mutant power to create and control duplicates of himself. The character first appeared in 1975's Giant-Size Fantastic Four No. 4 and was created by the late Len Wein, the comic book mind behind classic characters such as Wolverine. He's appeared on the big screen before, with Eric Dane playing him in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, which was directed by Brett Ratner and written by Kinberg.

 

The move comes as Fox has been ramping up its X-Men universe. It will release three films next year, with New Mutants (April 13), Deadpool 2 (June 1) and the Kinberg-directed X-Men: Dark Phoenix (Nov. 2) on the docket. A Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum has Gore Verbinski set to helm, while Logan filmmaker James Mangold is developing a spinoff centering on the young breakout character Laura (Dafne Keen).

 

Franco will next be seen in A24's The Disaster Artist, for which he is already receiving awards buzz as the movie's director and star. He is set to star in the Cohen brothers' first foray into television, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

 

Franco is repped by UTA, Anonymous and Sloane Offer.

 

 

I don't like James Franco being in things.

Loving Punisher so far. A bit random, but it has my favorite opening sequence / intro  / theme song of most shows. Only one on Netflix that I listen / watch every time without using the "Skip Intro" button. lol

 

Bernthal is amazing. Great action in the show. Purpose, drive, motivation to tell the story is beyond superb. Only major complaint through 5 episodes is that I don't like the actress playing Dinah. Every one of these damn shows has ONE actor or actress that I just loathe and cannot stand. She takes it for this series. And it isn't her character I dislike, I just don't think she does a great job at portraying it. Seems 2nd - rate compared to the rest of the cast

I feel ashamed for not watching any Punisher yet. Also, the Multiple Man movie sounds like a terrible idea. FOX is such a dog shit studio.

​EDIT: Speaking of FOX. There is reports that they also have talked with Sony, Comcast and Verizon about selling as well. I can't imagine any of those companies out bidding Disney if they seriously want a deal though. However, with Marvel movie rights the word on the street is that regardless of who FOX sells to, the rights will revert back to Marvel. Supposedly the contract doesn't allow FOX to sell the rights to another company. Disney wants to make the deal for all the TV stuff they can acquire (Imagine Homer Simpson now being Disney property), plus the original Star Wars trilogy distribution rights belong to FOX so a deal would allow them to add those movies to the upcoming Disney streaming service. All of this is just speculation, but I can see it being true. If Marvel seriously signed off on a deal allowing another company to sell their characters without their approval then they had the worst lawyers of all time.

Finished Punisher. Awesome. Only one bad episode of the bunch. 

I know there are other stories to tell and Punisher storylines galore. But it is hard for me to imagine what a Season 2 looks like or how it could surpass what we just witnessed.

Justice League was okay. Characters were likeable, plot was stupid, villain was lame. After credit scene was dope, not gonna lie.

Really? I thought it was awesome, honestly think it's at least as good as anything in the MCU, and this is coming from someone who hasn't been a huge fan of the recent run of DC movies and has been a huge fan of just about everything in the MCU

It was fun and enjoyable in a lot of ways, but  the story wasn't interesting and didn't flow well. Steppenwolf was a lame villain and comparable to Malekith who I think is the worst comic book movie villain in the past decade (not counting that F4 movie because I refused to watch that abomination). The movie was not bad by any stretch, it just isn't what I'd want from the first ever Justice League movie.

​Also, a $94 million dollar domestic opening weekend is rough for Warner Bros. executives. It wouldn't surprise me if the entire DCEU outside of Aquaman (already in production) and Wonder Woman 2 (they'd be crazy to cancel this) is now wiped clean. I still think using Flashpoint to soft reboot the universe to keep the good and send off the bad is the way to go. But we'll see, but regardless the big wigs at WB are not happy.

I am in between the two of you. Just saw it and it definitely exceeded my expectations. I felt it was a solid to good movie. Better than OK, but definitely not matching what Marvel puts out.... That is a joke. Lol. 

Ezra Miller's Flash, as a character, was better than I was expecting. Cyborg was A LOT better than I was expecting. I love Cyborg and just in the previews he kinda looked like a shit fest. Aquaman wasn't super lame, so that was a plus. On the flip side, I hate how virgin Flash and Cyborg are. Cyborg feels like he integrated with the mother box yesterday and Flash literally said he had never fought anyone before (I realize Barry Allen is a sarcastic kind of character but I think that was serious).  Cyborg's aesthetic look was too.. "edgy" or polygonal or whatever. It looks like they fixed that up at the very end there for a more rounded / smooth look, so that's fine I suppose. 

Also, the story was so jam packed. It felt rushed, sloppily put together, and jumped from plot points abruptly. It made me feel like I was missing something or didn't get the entire picture. Which is, honestly, true... Considering we haven't seen half this team other than post credits scenes. Really wish they would have made other solo films first, but I can understand why they didn't want their timeline to flesh out that way. 

 

Super Man is so fucking lame... I hate his presence and he dragged the movie down, IMO. Just wipe out his part of the universe, and ignore him.. Please. That also includes taking away that abomination of a Lex Luthor.. Holy shit.

Spoiler
is a win, but god damn it... I never want to see Jesse Eisenberg's fucking cue ball again. It's so bad.... So bad. I would literally rather watch another horrible Fantastic 4 reboot then watch more Super Man, even in a movie like this where he is flying around for 5 total air minutes.

And Affleck's Batman annoys me too, but not as much. He just mopes around and bitches and whines about his shitty life and how old he is. I don't mind some of that, but that is about all he is good for in these movies. 

Another huge positive.. The movies tried it's hand at more humor than previous titles. I am not sure it hit as often as they would have liked, but A for Effort. It lightened the load. All of their movies are just so dark, and overly dramatic. It's just so... heavy, I think is the word. I feel drained, and not in a good way a lot of the time watching their other movies.  Wonder Woman was better in that regard and tossed that ugly ass dark filter / saturation BS they used in Superman and BvS and this followed that WW mold more so -- which is a plus. 

Also... Green Lantern easter egg!!!! Awwwwwwwwwww YISSSSSSSSSSSS as Vin would say. Thank God. PLease don't be shit. Please.... Please don't be shit. I beg of you, don't be shit.

 

Overall... Good. Better than I thought it would be. I hope they continue in this positive direction.

 

EDIT: 

Oh yes, and I want to.. again.. gush about Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. She is the perfect fit for the character. As perfect as RDJ is for Tony Stark. She IS Wonder Woman. Thank God that shit show studio got something right.

yeah, it's a bit of an exaggeration, I think the biggest thing is that it exceeded my expectations by so much, I thought they did an excellent job of balancing out the number of characters, particularly given how many were new, and Steppenwolf was actually a solid villain, which Marvel has had a lot of trouble with (but they're getting better)
