John Boyega Not Joining Black Panther


John Boyega Michael B. Jordan

The breakout star of the latest instalment of the Star Wars franchise first sparked speculation he was in talks to join the ever-growing cast of Marvel’s upcoming movie earlier this week (16May16) after posting a photo from a Los Angeles office building on Snapchat with the caption, "meeting".

Shortly after, Boyega and the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, started following each other on Twitter, leading film fans to suggest the business meeting had to do with Black Panther.

But a representative for Boyega played down the reports on Thursday (19May16) in a statement to Complex Magazine which simply reads: "Talks are false."

Fantastic Four Flop Producer Wants To Bring Cast Back For Another Shot At Film


Fantastic Four Miles Teller Michael B. Jordan

Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and villain Toby Kebbel have been vocal about the failed film, while Kate Mara couldn't even bring herself to watch, and director Josh Trank attacked his own movie upon its release in August (15).

But producer Simon Kinberg insists he has learned from his mistakes and insists his next Fantastic Four film will be much better.

He tells Den of Geek, "We didn't make a good movie, and the world voted, and I think they probably voted correctly.

Stallone, who is up for a Best Supporting Actor award at the Oscars, admits he considered joining the boycott over the lack of diversity among the leading nominations, but his African-American director insisted he go.

"I spoke with Ryan Coogler when this happened," Sly explained at Monday's (08Feb16) Oscars nominees luncheon. "I said, 'Ryan how do you want to handle this? Because I really believe you are responsible for me being here'.

"I said, 'If you don't want me to go, I won't'. He said, 'I want you to go'. That's the kind of guy he is. He wanted me to stand up for the film."

Chris Rock Michael B. Jordan

Hundreds gathered at Manhattan's Riverside Church to mark Martin Luther King Day, the American holiday in honour of the late Baptist minister, as part of the #MLKNow event.

Michael and Chris joined artists and community activists at the church as they gave readings and took part in discussions and musical performances dedicated to the civil rights movement.

The Creed star read from a piece of writing by Fred Hampton, a founder of the Black Panthers, calling on activists to join together to fight racism, according to CBS New York.

Michael B. Jordan: 'Fantastic Four Reshoots Were Tough'


Michael B. Jordan Josh Trank Sylvester Stallone Creed

The 28-year-old played Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in the Marvel film, which became one of the biggest box office disasters of 2015.

Problems reportedly arose between 20th Century Fox and director Josh Trank during the production process, with major reshoots and script rewrites ordered, and Michael admits it was a tough time for the cast, which also included Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

"Working on set is always difficult when you’re doing a project of that size, with those many special effects and CGI," he told Britain's The Independent newspaper. "A lot of parts were involved. Did it feel tough? Yeah, it felt tough, but you never know how it's going to turn out in the end.

Sylvester Stallone Redeems Himself At Critics' Choice Awards As He Collects Another Creed Prize


Sylvester Stallone Creed Ryan Coogler Michael B. Jordan

The Rocky star was criticised for failing to mention Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan in his Golden Globes Best Supporting Actor acceptance speech a week ago (10Jan16), but he redeemed himself in Santa Monica, California a week later.

The 69-year-old became an Oscars front-runner as he picked up the same award, for his portrayal of boxer-turned-trainer Rocky Balboa, at the 21st Critics' Choice Awards, and he made sure he namechecked his movie collaborators.

"Before I get into any more trouble, I just wanna say thank you to my director, Ryan Coogler," Sly said as the audience at the Barker Hangar cheered. "He really is a genius. He made it all happen... (and) Michael B. Jordan, you're a great, great talent, and you're here for a long, long time."

Creed Review

Extraordinary

While this film is basically Rocky VII, it's also much more than that, and perhaps the best in the series as it tells a standalone story with energy and skill. Reteaming writer-director Ryan Coogler with actor Michael B. Jordan after their underrated gem Fruitvale Station, this pulsing drama is also one of the best boxing movies in recent memory, harking back to classics in the genre while reinventing them with textured storytelling and raw performances.

Jordan plays Adonis, who never met his father, the iconic boxer Apollo Creed. He also refuses to take his surname, even after being adopted by Apollo's widow (Phylicia Rashad) and raised in a Los Angeles mansion with a great education. But he also can't resist the temptation to box, starting out in backroom Tijuana brawls. Finally he realises that something's got to give, so he heads to Philadelphia to explore his roots, meeting his father's former friend and rival Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and asking him to teach him a few tricks to help further his career. But Rocky is battling his own issues, so these two mismatched men push each other forward. Adonis finds romance with the feisty Bianca (Thompson), and Rocky decides to help Adonis train to face the tough British champ (Tony Bellew).

The essence of this story is that we have to make peace with the past to move on to the future. This is woven into the script beautifully, without ever preaching, as Coogler encourages the audience to constantly see what's happening beneath the surface. This requires the actors to deliver unusually complex performances, and Jordan is wonderfully conflicted as a man whose inner nice guy is warring against his own history. Stallone, meanwhile, delivers one of his best performances ever as the sardonic, battered champion. He's relaxed and open, reminding us why we fell in love with Rocky to begin with.

Michael B. Jordan: 'I Had To Pitch Rocky To Sly'


Michael B. Jordan Ryan Coogler Creed Sylvester Stallone

Despite the bold claims, Sylvester was reluctant to return as the famous boxer. It's fortunate he did though, as on Sunday (10Jan16) he scooped the top prize at the Golden Globes for Best Supporting Actor. It was the first high profile accolade he has won, and Michael has admitted the honour left his co-star dazed.

"With Sly, you know he turned us away a few times," Michael explained to Absolute Radio. "In the beginning he was not interested whatsoever. (We were) pitching to him about it being sick, but Sly was very not into... Rocky's done, he's retired, it's over he did not want to bring Rocky back to the screen.

"For us it was a big deal getting him involved. We knew we couldn't do it without him, so honestly his wife Jennifer, thank you so much (for convincing him). Hey man sometimes you've got to go for the woman behind the man, standing next to the man to make it happen. All women out there, we appreciate you!"
