Fox hasn’t gotten QUITE as busy as some of the other studios with its superhero roster of films, but what it lacks in quantity, it might be going for in quality. Since Fox doesn’t have a Marvel or DC at its disposal, it’s going with the smaller, dare I say “grittier” adaptations of graphic novels.

Most recently, Fox has announced that it will be telling the story of Malignant Man, a dude who’s diagnosed with terminal cancer, only to find that the tumor is actually a parasite that gives him super powers. Fun for the whole family, no?

The film version will likely be directed by James Wan, who is currently hard at work on Fast & Furious 7.

If you’re excited about this project, you may want to take a breath, though. It’s currently not slated until 2017.

Reilly in spandex? The Other Guys director Adam McKay is reported to be in talks to direct an adaptation of the ├╝ber-violent Garth Ennis comic, The Boys. The comic follows a secret CIA team that monitors and punishes hard partying, out-of-control superheroes.McKay is a strange pick for this dark and gruesome material, so I would expect him to add a comedic element that makes the film more family-friendly. Like Will Ferrell running around naked except for a Superman cape. He can study my neighbor's kid for the role. Seriously, though. Put some pants on that kid. He's six. (EW)

It's a fact of life that we all need to be prepared for. I feel like you're at an age where you're mature enough to handle that news. I'm talking about in the movies only of course. The real Ryan Reynolds will never die. He will be around forever. You hear me God?Producer Neal Moritz announced that Reynolds will follow Change-Up with a starring role in the upcoming adaptation of the graphic novel R.I.P.D.. In the film, he will play a recently-deceased cop who joins the Rest In Peace Department - which is the police department for the dead, naturally. Reynold's dead partner in the buddy cop film is described as a gunslinger who's been dead for hundreds of years. I take that to mean he wasn't that good of a gunslinger. (Collider)
