Producer Wants Gambit Solo Film (Yes) With Channing Tatum (HA HA, No)

Lauren Shuler Donner is a producer with nearly $3 billion in movie grosses under the belt of her career. But now the lady who helped bring Free Willy, Pretty in Pink, and every movie in the X-Men franchise to theaters is trying to do something even less likely: convince me that a Gambit solo film starring Channing Tatum would work.

Marvel’s Latest Animated Movie is Marjorie Liu-Written Black Widow & Punisher

On the one hand, Marvel Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher was written by long-time X-Men and Dirk & Steele series writer Marjorie Liu and features not just Black Widow in a major role, but also Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel. That’s very intriguing. On the other… well I wouldn’t say the trailer glorifies, exactly, but it certainly doesn’t hide the fact that the movie’s got a serious case of Physics Defying Boobs. I mean, technically there’s no evidence of Gainaxing in its most classic form, but trailers that pan up the lead female character’s body but cut away before we see her face set off my alarms. Hopefully Liu’s writing will be the most noticeable thing about the full film.

NYCC’s Gonna Track Us All With New RFID Equipped Badges

Okay, so it may not be the big deal that San Diego Comic Con is, but The Mary Sue’s biggest hometown con, New York Comic Con, has a special place in our hearts. It’s also approaching with a speed that has caused only a few moments of panic so far (stay tuned in the next few weeks for info on our meetup and our panel), and with an approaching con comes the shipping of badges. NYCC has a new trick up its sleeve to combat both overcrowding and counterfeit or scalped badges (notorious problems for the event): RFID tags. They’re also planning on using the badges to monitor traffic flow. In other words, if having your location within the Javits Center tracked creeps you out, you might want to read the instructions that come with your badge very carefully.

Ridley Scott and the Old Testament aren’t really two things that you would expect to come together in a creative project, but at the very least you can assume this about Exodus: it’ll be really interesting.

Sean Young Spills on Whether We’ll Be Seeing Rachael in the Blade Runner Sequel

Like it or not, a sequel to Blade Runner is in the works. It’s still in the very early stages—to my knowledge all we know about it at this point is that Ridley Scott plans to do it. But the very prospect of a Blade Runner sequel has a lot of people curious, including Crave Online, which during an interview with Sean Young took the opportunity to ask the actress whether her original Blade Runner character Rachael might show up in the sequel.

Her answer?
