Blade Runner came out in 1982, and is still recognized as one of the best science fiction movies ever made, but with the news that the sequel is finally almost happening, there has been one question that stuck with fans for the last 3 decades: Was Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) a replicant?

Blade Runner’s plot:

Set in the future, Deckard (Ford), a blade runner, must pursue and try to terminate four replicants (robots that look like humans), who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.

After several decades, a sequel is finally getting close to being made, and it looks like Harrison Ford is on board, but director Ridley Scott might not be. But, in an interview to promote his latest epic Exodus: God and Kings, he did an with Digital Spy where he finally revealed the truth about Rick Deckard.

Blade Runner II is said to be starting filming in early 2015, but there is no word on a release date or a specific plot, but we know that Harrison Ford is being eyed for the sequel, and that his character comes into the third act:

In an interview with Variety.com, Ridley Scott discussed the sequel as well as his, and Ford’s involvement.

“We talked at length about what it could be,” Scott tells the trade of the sequel’s story, “and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline.”

“Harrison is very much part of this one,” Scott continues, “But it’s really about finding him. He comes in in the third act.”

OK, so if you continued, you must really want to know.

In the extended version of Blade Runner (based on the Phillip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?), Deckard has a bit of a recollection of a dream, where he sees a Unicorn, and at the end of the film, when he leaves his apartment with Rachael, she knocks over an origami unicorn. The unicorn was made by Gaff and is a bit of an Easter egg that Deckard isn’t human…

Blade Runner fans have long argued about the true nature of the film’s protagonist, Rick Deckard, and whether or not the film’s replicant hunting protagonist was, ironically, a replicant himself.

Well, director Ridley Scott has given his definitive answer on the matter, in an interview with Digital Spy. If you’re someone who appreciates the film’s ambiguity and would rather not have Scott’s answer effect your interpretation of the film, you should probably stop reading here.

Still with us? Okay, here it is. Ridley Scott said

“He is definitely a replicant,”

But the film’s star Harrison Ford was apparently never able to get a direct answer from Scott when they were filming:

“I was moved to ask Ridley whether or not he thought that the character I was playing was a Replicant,” Ford said at a 2013 AFI event. “Well, I never got a straight answer. Which is okay, I guess. But I thought it was important that the audience be able to have a human representative on screen, somebody that they could have an emotional understanding of. Ridley didn’t think that was all that important.”

Mark Wahlberg To Have His Own ‘Transformers’ Trilogy

The news comes from ScreenRant.com, but Mark Wahlberg just confirmed he will continue on with the Transformers franchise. Although Transformers: Age Of Extinction didn’t exactly improve the franchise, it earned over $1 billion worldwide (the second highest grossing in the series).

While doing an interview with MTV to promote his new film The Gambler, the topic of the future of Transformers came up, and of course the franchise continues, & Mark Wahlberg is returning, but director Michael Bay might not be.

“Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more… you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon.”

While the franchise continues, and the storyline with Mark Wahlberg keeps going, there’s no word on what the plot will be, but it’s rumoured that the story will be a trilogy.

It was reported a few months back that Paramount Pictures had a 2016 release date for the next Transformers, but with Mark Wahlberg working on press for The Gambler, and filming is soon to start on comedy Daddy’s Home, soon could mean anytime in mid-2015.

What are your thoughts on the Transformers franchise? What about a Transformers trilogy starring Mark Wahlberg? Who could you see taking the director’s seat from Michael Bay in Transformers 5?

IF ‘Iron Man 4′ Happens, Could It Be ‘Civil War Part II’ & Follow ‘Captain America: Civil War’?

Several weeks ago, we saw the announcement of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe Phase Three, and with it came the list of upcoming Marvel movies, including Captain America: The Civil War, but nothing about an Iron Man 4… But, it’s not Marvels style to put it all on the table. They have gained attention because of their last second teases to what’s next, so the chances that they don’t have something else up the sleeve are slim.

My guess is that Iron Man 4 could still be on the way, but could piggyback onto Cap 3: Civil War, with Iron Man: Civil War

What do you think of my theory? Any thoughts on the “unveiling” of Marvels next Phase? What do you think of the movies that are coming next?
