X-MenFilms.com has posted information indicating that 20th Century Fox is currently developing an “X-Force” film. The studio reportedly registered the domain name X-ForceMovie.com three months ago, which falls in line with other X-Men-related films Fox has produced. It’s a rumor for now — there is not currently any indication other than the domain registry that Fox is working on an “X-Force” film.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Marvel Studios has released a piece of Ryan Meinerding’s concept art for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” featuring a battle between — you guessed it — Captain America and the Winter Soldier. Check it out below.
The Daily Beast spoke with rumored Human Torch actor Michael B. Jordan about a number of subject, and the actor revealed that he was actually in talks for two other Marvel roles: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s” The Falcon (a role that eventually went to Anthony Mackie) and “Amazing Spider-Man 2’s” Harry Osborn.
“With superheroes, a lot of those comics were created before the 1960s, so they weren’t going to have a black man save America,” Jordan told The Daily Beast. “So I think it’s more of a continuity thing now. With more generic superheroes, why can’t you have a black, Asian, Hispanic actor play the role? Hopefully, in my lifetime, we’ll see more black superheroes.”

CBR’s own Josh Wigler spoke with actor Byung-Hun Lee about his role as Han in “RED 2” and how his character comes to interact with Bruce Willis’ character, Frank.
“Han used to be an agent, just like Frank — but one day, Frank framed Han, so he couldn’t continue with his agent job,” actor Byung-Hun Lee told CBR News. “So, he became the world’s most dangerous assassin, and one day, he gets hired by someone to kill Frank — and the movie starts from there.”
