Snyder Gives First Official Look At The ‘Batman vs Superman’ Batmobile (sorta)

- 05-12-14Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Batmobile_007

With production on Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel inching ever forward, anticipation has been high that we might catch a glimpse of some of the film’s key elements, particularly anything related to the new cinematic Batman. I will not lie, each and every day I sit in front of the internet with the small hope that today is the day that we see the new Batfleck Batsuit or a batarang or… Hell, I’d settle for just about anything with the prefix of ‘bat’ smacked on to it.

Well, moments ago the man behind the still untitled Batman vs Superman movie, Zack Snyder, tweeted out a teaser showing (mostly) the new look of Batmobile. (more…)

For the past year or more, fans of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise have been on an emotional rollercoaster. The Michael Bay backed reboot of the Heroes In A Half Shell has been met with a range of emotions from cautious optimism to blind nerd rage (ok, it is mostly the latter.) With the first trailer hitting the Internet today we should finally have the final answer on what this new iteration of TMNT will be, right?

Well, Will Arnett (who plays the wise cracking camera man to Megan Fox‘s April O’Neil) stopped by the TODAY show to give us a first look at the movies trailer. Oh, and he brought them pizza because prop comedy is still a valid art form.  (more…)

As Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wraps up it’s inaugural season, it seems ABC’s semi-superhero related procedural as a few surprises (and definite fanservice moments) planned. Marvel.com has announced that comedian and life long comic book nerd Patton Oswalt with be making an appearance on the show, joining the likes of Bill Paxton, Adrian Pasdar, John Garrett and of course Stan Lee.

Stunt casting? Maybe, but who cares! It’s Patton Oswalt, I could watch that man eat Cheetos for 40 minutes and still be entertained. So who is he playing? Well that might be a little surprising to some. (more…)

And The Lead Role in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Goes To…

- 03-12-14Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Star_Wars_casting

…One of these five guys. Maybe.

Variety is reporting that J.J. Abrams is close to casting the lead role in Star Wars: Episode VII with only a handful of actors on his short list and it is a very interesting short list indeed. According to their sources the main character (who will not be the offspring of Leia and Han Solo or Luke and.. um… Luke’s friend) could be one of these five actors, however they did add he caveat that ‘the search is still on‘  just incase this turns out to be bunk.

So, who could be (allegedly) facing off against the (rumored) villainous Adam Driver, who’s (reportedly) been cast as the films bad guy? (more…)

Gal Gadot Taking Shape as Wonder Woman

- 02-25-14Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

gal_gadot_as_wonder_woman__by_renstar71-d6wsrttx600
When Gal Gadot was cast as our first big screen Wonder Woman, saying that it was met with  some criticism would be an understatement. Blind fan-being rage and consternation (mixed with weird body image issues in some instances,) even seems to fall a bit short. The leading complaint seemed to be that she was ‘too skinny’ and ‘didn’t have the right body type’ (meaning breasts apparently) and that she lacked the physicality that a fictitious amazonian princess should have (you’re still talking about breasts, aren’t you?)

Well, after initially (and a tad sarcastically) responding to the criticism with her words, she’s put her money where her mouth is… that is she’s posted some shots of her working out on her facebook. (more…)

Here’s That ‘Knight Rider’ Casting Rumor You Never Wanted To Hear

- 02-12-14Film, TV Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

knight-rider

While we live in a world where any franchise follows the five second rule (and the 2008 TV reboot definitely landed butter side down*) it should come as no surprise that we are nearing another Knight Rider reboot. To be honest, we’ve known about this since last summer when the LA Times reported that Brad Copeland was tapped to give the buddie-buddie/car-mullet combo a fresh coat of paint, and it was assumed since Copeland (who has worked on Arrested Development) was in charge that this new Knight Rider would have a comedic take. Hey, it worked for 21 Jump Street right?

Well a casting rumor, and I stress, RUMOR floated across the internet about who could be cast in movie and well, it does look like they are joking. Please let them be joking. Hit the jump to see who could be your new Micheal Knight/KITT team. (more…)

Of Course Matt Damon Has Seen Ben Affleck’s Batman Costume, Says He Knows the BvS Storyline

- 02-05-14Comics, Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

Batman_Affleck_Damon

After cracking the joke countless times, we really shouldn’t be shocked. After all Kevin Smith and Jennifer Garner have seen it, so of course Matt Damon has seen what his buddy, Ben Affleck, looks like in his new batsuit. Admit it, if YOU were cast as the Dark Knight, you’d be showing it off to everyone too. Hell, I’d be wearing that damn thing 24/7 (actually, I don’t need to be cast as Batman to dress up as Batman, right? Asking for a friend.)
MTV caught up with Damon recently while he was promoting his next movie, Monuments Men, and needled him for details. Which he gave and also revealed that Ben has given him the inside track on the storyline of Batman vs Superman(more…)
