It was a bit of a drag when Marvel removed their Inhumans movie from their Phase Three slot. However, we all breathed a sigh of relief when it was announced that Black Bolt and the Inhuman Royal Family would instead show up on the small screen later on this year. First premiering the first two episodes on Imax screen in a limited release, the show would then be broadcast on ABC this September. Filming is scheduled to begin next month in Hawaii. So far there have been a few casting announcements for a few roles including Arrow’s Elysia Rotaru to play Medusa as well as Owen Harn and Eliana Jones playing Gorgon and Crystal. Many wondered about who would play Maximus, Black Bolt’s brother, and the Loki to his Thor. Maximus has always been power hungry, and a great villain in the comic books. They just announced who will play Maximus, and the casting couldn’t be more perfect!
February 20, 2017 is a day that will live in infamy; it’s the start of production on the young Han Solo adventure and the next standalone Star Wars Story film in the franchise. Details are still scarce about what part of Han Solo’s life will be revealed in the course of the film, which has long been a dream project of Empire Strikes Back screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, but we now know that it will definitely have something to do with the Millennium Falcon. Have you ever seen a happier group of people? Well, you would be too if you were behind the stink of the Falcon as well! (more…)
Fan support may have gotten Guillermo del Toro in the door for a Hellboy III meeting, but it was all for naught. Just as quickly as he raised fans hopes, del Torro today dashed those same hopes into a thousand pieces with one tweet. (more…)
Disney has released a sneak peek at the opening number from their new film Beauty and the Beast, a remake of the cartoon classic. The clip shows the first minute of the opening musical sequence, which is similar to the original in a lot of ways. Watch it below: (more…)
For some reason, the first thought of the morning was “What if Gilligan found a crashed alien spaceship on the island and got face-hugged?” Who wouldn’t watch the heck out of that episode? The good money is on Mary Ann to be the sole survivor. In other Alien news, director Ridley Scott‘s Alien Covenant production has released a cast photo which you can check out below. (more…)
Expectations are high for Wonder Woman, and not just because Warner Bros. is hoping that she might right the ship in terms of the studios’ efforts to correct widespread critical disinterest and mixed fan reaction to the DC Expanded Universe. Of course, people are just generally looking forward to seeing the first superhero movie led a solo superheroine, which is maybe why we’ve gotten this new cover art for the subscribers of Empire magazine. It’s a very flattering picture of Gal Gadot, and it seems to portend that sunny days are on the horizon, and maybe not just for the Amazonian warrior princess. (more…)
Ever since the first time we got to see Hugh Jackman (The Prestige, Prisoners, and Chappie) pop his claws in X-Men, fans have been asking the obvious question: where’s his iconic yellow costume? It has been referred to and even shown in a short scene at one point over Jackman’s career as the Weapon X, but he has never worn it. With Logan‘s release just around the corner, we may have finally learned why the original costume for Wolverine just doesn’t work thanks to comments by the film’s director.
When we last saw Kara Danvers / Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), she was just about to give in into her Kryptonian hormonal urges and seal the deal with fellow super-powered alien (Daxamite), Mon-El (Chris Wood). Before they could complete lip-lock, a bizarre, inter dimensional being, Mr. Mxyzptlk (Peter Gadiot), crashed their romantic party, claiming he was Supergirl’s No. 1 Super-fan/Ultimate Fanboy and asking for Supergirl’s hand in matrimony. Perplexed, not to mention flummoxed, Supergirl hemmed and stalled until Mr. Mxyzptlk left the building, but his sudden disappearance didn’t mean he was gone for good; it meant the opposite. Mr. Mxyzptlk was nothing more than a stalker, albeit a stalker with near omnipotence (think of a love-obsessed Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation or the Great Kazoo from The Flintstones).
