Spinoff Online hears rumblings of Black Bolt and his kind finding their way to feature films. The story leads back to Badass Digest and an item on It’s On the Grid, which refers to the project as centering around “aliens who were put on Earth as sleeper cell aliens to eventually call back their race to take over the planet. Ultimately, the group of aliens fully assimilates and don’t want to cause war.” Sounds like a “Secret Invasion” off-shoot. Since I’m wildly speculating here, could you accept Black Bolt as a Skrull?

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
So at one point, it looked like everything was a go for director Guillermo del Toro’s film adaptation of Lovecraft’s novel. Now, not so much. “Universal has been balking over the $150 million budget and R rating,” writes Deadline‘s Mike Fleming. “This despite the fact that del Toro had Tom Cruise ready to star in the film, with James Cameron producing with Don Murphy and Susan Montford, and Cameron god-fathering the 3D process. Del Toro and his team have delivered a stunning visual presentation that met the studio’s budget specifications, but I’m told the studio is still wary about the R rating and price.” That’s a shame. Del Toro has been trying to make this movie for a long time.
