Batgirl could be flying on to the big screen in the near future and she might be doing so with another ginger fan favorite phenom at the helm. Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. and Joss Whedon, yes the Buffy The Vampire Slayer guy, are close to inking a deal to put him in the pilot seat. (more…)
Jeremy R! Hudson
Profile: Hailing from parts unknown (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.. it's in Canada!) jeremy r! hudson is a broadcaster, writer, artist and self styled new media renaissance man. Once described as the second last hope of the human race. Pop-culture, comic books, science fiction, video games and your sister are just a few of his many interests.

He can be stalked via twitter, facebook and following him home at night.
The big DC Films team-up movie, Justice League, is set to drop a whole new trailer this upcoming Saturday (March 25,) so of course that means a galactic threat level hype machine is currently laying waste to social media across the globe that would leave Despero envious. From Twitter, to YouTube, to Facebook and beyond, Warner Bros. social media interns have been enduring the first 3 cords of The White Stripes ‘Icky Thump’ on repeat as each member of the team has been getting their own 20 second teaser and character poster.
Nearly two decades after the lights went out on the Satellite of Love, a new bejumpsuited buffoon and pair of robot friends are set to power it back up for a revived Mystery Science Theater 3000. After an amazingly successful Kickstarter campaign ($5,764,229 from 48,270 backers making it the largest one for film or video… suck it, Veronica Mars movie!) show creator and original host Joel Hodgson‘s beloved cult favorite film riffing TV show is set to return in the not to distant future. April 14th to be exact.
With a full fledged sequel to Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Man of Steel (reportedly) back on the DC Extended Universe’s ever fluctuating film slate, the assumption was that Zack would be back to bring the next Superman solo movie to the big screen. Well, that might not be the case. Collider is reporting that ‘sources’ close to the Warner Bros. Superhero films are saying that the top choice is for another director to helm a second outing for the Man of Tomorrow (in the current franchise.) (more…)
This June a legend 75 years in the making arrives on the big screen. The Amazonian warrior princess Wonder Woman is set, if the hype is to be believed, to conquer the box office. The latest trailer custom designed to designed to whip that hype up into a frothy fervor debuted tonight, taking Diana from a little princess to the warrior destined to defend the world. (more…)
Months ago the much await arrival of Amazon’s azure arachnid avenger came in the form of an amazingly well received pilot (which is still available, FYI.) And while we have to wait a little longer for this third small screen iteration of The Tick (following the 1994 cartoon and the far too short Patrick Warburton FOX live-action series from 2001) some good news dropped earlier today on the production’s official twitter. They’ve started principal photography and star Peter Serafinowicz is rockin a vastly improved suit. Check it out: (more…)
Other than last years Comic-Con teaser/sizzle reel and a couple of officially released images, things have been kind of quiet on the forthcoming big screen debut of The Justice League. With the film knuckle deep in post-production, director Zack Snyder has released one of his patented “we making a movie” behind the scenes stills of someone hard at work color processing a scene. Of course that scene shows off Batman mid being all Batman-y. Classic Zack, amiright? (more…)
With production set to start on Aquaman this summer the gentle tide of information on the DCEU film is slowly starting to roll in. The films star, Jason Momoa, took a break from his grueling (most likely trident centric) preparations to talk with Digital Trends.
Fans and detractors have spent decades making jokes at the expense of the King of the Seven Seas, how did Momoa approach playing the Justice League’s monitor duty marathon champion and chief fish translator? (more…)
As every evolving mythos surrounding your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man marches on into it’s 52nd year, you start to wonder if there is any new twists or turns creators could spin to reinvent the character for new generations. We’ve seen costume changes, more than a few clones, heck even web-shooters with a built in mp3 player (kids are crazy about those mp3 players) and bat-crap-crazy dance numbers that have NO place in the movie. Where can you take Lee and Ditko’s wallcrawler when it seems like he’s been everywhere?
The butt. You go straight for the butt.
Corridor Digital plunged new depths in a special effects/rectal web extravaganza (featuring RocketJump filmmaker Clinton Jones as Spidey) that you have to see to believe (and then forever never unsee.) (more…)
After the sudden and tragic passing of Carrie Fisher the question of how the Star Wars franchise would react, rose. Almost immediately (morbidly), there was speculation that LucasFlim/Disney would “resurrect” General Leia digitally as they had done with Peter Cushing/Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After all, they did use the actresses likeness for a younger Princess Leia cameo in the same movie, but that was with the help and blessing of a living Carrie Fisher.
Speculation gave way to rumor recently after the BBC stated that the studio was reportedly in talks with Carrie Fishers’ estate to use her image in future films. Whether in reaction to the response the report garnered or in lines with pre-existing plans, LucasFilm broke silence and released the following statement on StarWars.com: (more…)
