the-interview

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The FBI has announced that they believe North Korea is responsible for the massive attack against Sony Pictures. I'm still skeptical about it coming directly from North Korea, because of the infrastructure they have can't handle the amount of bandwidth needed to … [Read more...]

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Ah, I love being right! Over the years we've heard tidbits about the Ant-Man movie that was being developed by Edgar Wright over at Marvel Studios, but it seemed like Marvel wanted to establish their bigger names, such as Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, and Captain … [Read more...]

Star-Wars-Sith

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) While Star Wars: The Force Awakens has had a problem with leaks during production, there's still a lot we don't know.

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Ever since the news broke out that Jurassic World would involve a dinosaur hybrid made from a tyrannosaurus rex, a raptor, a snake, and a cuttlefish, I've kept a weary eye on it. For me, the worst part was that Chris Pratt's character Owen would have trained … [Read more...]

Gore Verbinski, Steve Carell’s North Korea Thriller Cancelled

Steve Carell

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) And that's what we call a 'two-fer.' Not content with canceling just one film that centers on North Korea, Hollywood has gone ahead and cancelled another one being developed by Gore Verbinski and written by Steve Conrad, for Steve Carell, who had a stunning … [Read more...]

The Actor Neil Gaiman Thinks Should Play The Sandman

sandman

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) One of the most unfilmable comic book series of all time -- after David Mack's Kabuki, in my humble opinion -- is The Sandman by Neil Gaiman and an amazing group of artists. Over the years, there have been many attempts to bring it to the big screen, and every … [Read more...]

Sony Cancels The Interview, The Terrorists Won

No The Interview

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I get pretty serious about films. I've been in heated arguments about classic movies with other film lovers, but never have I seen something quite like the hacking of Sony Pictures over The Interview with James Franco and Seth Rogen. Guys, it's just a … [Read more...]

Peter Jackson Might Be Up For More Tolkien Films

Peter_Jackson_Hobbit_Movie_(1)

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) In the end, The Hobbit trilogy has wrapped up pretty well. While I still maintain that it is an inferior series compared to The Lord Of The Rings, when seen as one eight-plus hour film, it stands up pretty well. Now that both The Hobbit and The Lord of the … [Read more...]

star-trek-3-screenwriters

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Until recently, it seemed like writer/producer Roberto Orci was attached to helm of the Starship Enterprise in Star Trek 3. All of a sudden and completely out of the blue, pre-production was stopped and Orci was kicked out of (or vacated) the directors chair with … [Read more...]

Mega Movie Review: The Hobbit Trilogy

the_hobbit_the_desolation_of_smaug

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) In my The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies review, I called the final film a satisfying conclusion to an uneven film series. I was fortunate enough to see it in conjunction with the previous two films in one sitting, and I can tell you, that this was the way it … [Read more...]

Check Out The Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man Suit Mark 43!

Iron Man Mark XLIII

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Look, don't get me wrong, I love me some Iron Man, but the third film in the franchise was a bit of a disaster. The redeeming qualities of that film were the performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, but the plot was a clunker, and the less said … [Read more...]

Yoda To Appear In Star Wars Rebels, Voiced By Frank Oz

Yoda

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Star Wars Rebels hit the small screen with a bang.

Unlike The Clone Wars, which took place around the … [Read more...]

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is Peter Jackson's final journey into Middle Earth By Danny F.

Krysten Ritter On Playing Jessica Jones For Marvel

Krysten Ritter

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) The hits keep coming with Marvel's fantastic casting for their upcoming Netflix television series.

Will join Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) One of the rumored repeated mantras coming out of Marvel Studios these days is "No origin stories." I would add to that the reason for this is the Spider-Man/Man of Steel effect, where their origins are so well … [Read more...]
