The story of Miles Morales and his quest for fame on the big screen probably dates back to when Captain America: Civil War was just in pre-production. Back then, there were murmurs that someone big was going to make a cameo in the film. Of course the internet exploded when Spider-Man was announced as that hero. Immediately, questions emerged whether or not it was going to be Peter Parker or Miles Morales. There was no doubt it was always going to be Parker since he played a pivotal role in the comic book telling of Civil War. The collective disappointment that it wasn’t Miles Morales didn’t go unheard. It was just further proof that something had to be done about Marvel’s insta-celebrity. And now something is being done – he’s getting his own animated film.

Rick Cosnett Confirms His Return To ‘The Flash’

Thanks to Flashpoint, anything can happen. No show is safe. No cast member, dead or alive is safe. As some of you may have seen from previews of Arrow, Laurel Lance has resurrected herself. And now it looks like another another deceased member of the CW/DC Universe is coming back from the dead, but in what capacity? Leave it to Rick Cosnett to say anything far from the truth with the answer. In fact, he was quite blunt when he Tweeted that he was coming back to The Flash. Will fans see Eddie Thawne stitched back together again thanks to Flashpoint? Or will this be some other version of Thawne from another Earth? It’s anyone’s guess.

Kong Skull Island Screen Cap 2
Remember that time when Jack Black starred in a King Kong movie and delivered the most poignant line in the entire movie? That was almost 12 years ago. And in Hollywood, that the amount of time needed for a reboot. Kong: Skull Island is another telling of an age-old classic about a giant ape and his girl. Of course, as of right now, it’s hard to tell if there will be any romance between the two, but the latest trailer from Japan does spill the beans on all the action. Check it out after the jump.

Award season is here, and because of that, Deadpool has been under the spotlight with everyone keeping an eye on the franchise. Sadly, it didn’t any awards at the Golden Globes, but Ryan Reynolds did make the news when he and former Spider-Man star, Andrew Garfield, shared a kiss when Ryan Gosling won the award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy – the same category that Reynolds was nominated in for his work in Deadpool. There are plenty of questions being asked about the sequel and one of them is if the film will still be a solo film to which the writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, reassured fans that it will be despite the news of numerous well-known characters being in the film.

Some out there would argue that Cars isn’t your typical Pixar movie. Some of their titles include: Toy Story, Up, and Inside Out. Sure, it’s not the big blockbusting money maker that some of their others films have been, yet here it is, set to debut it’s third installment. However, this isn’t doesn’t have any of the feels from the 2006 original. From the initial sneak peek audiences got, there was a hint that the film was going in the opposite direction of the first, and now that a second teaser has hit the internet, they have a clearer view of what it is.

If you couldn’t tell by her Disney Princess demeanor in the Star Wars films, Carrie Fisher has always been a very blunt person. When she passed away, the world lost an iconic figure, a role model, and a leading lady. So, it would only make sense that, even after her death, Fisher was still making statements. This time it was in the form of a Prozac pill. And not just any pill – a giant one to hold her ashes in. For more, keep reading after the jump.

A long time ago, when Costco used to sell comic books in sealed packages ranging from X-Men to Thor to Batman and even Quasar. Who the hell is Quasar? Exactly. Also included in some of those packages were some smaller press comics from a company by the name of Image. Their titles included Youngblood, Brigade, and Bloodstrike. They were part of a universe known as the Extreme Universe and were all created Rob Liefeld. And now Liefeld, along with Akiva Goldsman have just hit a deal with numerous Hollywood executives to bring the Extreme Universe to life and to a theater near you in the not too distant future.

Growing up as a kid, The Jetsons was one of those shows you wished you lived in. Flying cars, pods that dropped you off where you needed to be, and robot maids. Now, some of this technology has become somewhat of a reality. Artificial intelligence is a thing. Flying cars may have to wait several more years, but at least there are conveyor belts to move people along. But check out what Justin Lin did when he teamed up with futuristic tech company, Arconic, to produce a live-action Jetsons commercial.

The last time any of you heard the name Simon Belmont (or the Belmont family for that matter) mentioned on television was in the late 80’s or early 90’s when a little show called Captain N: The Game Master was being broadcast. He wasn’t the star of the show, but he was definitely one of the most memorable characters or else we wouldn’t be mentioning him. Speaking of the Belmonts, there is a little rumor going around the internet talking about the possibility of a Castlevania TV series coming to fruition. Don’t let the picture above fool you, if it does come true, the theme better be Bloody Tears from Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest.
