Empire Magazine recently debuted the cover of its upcoming September 2015 issue, featuring the likes of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel as they’ll appear in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. If the cover hasn’t motivated you to drop $10.00 on the mag, Empire has just released a new batch of photos from its multi-page article. The photos give us a better look at The Dark Knight, Supes and a rather hip looking Lex Luthor. (more…)
I’ve finally reached my Rant Level when it comes to Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four Reboot. I’ve been able to let a lot of things go when it comes to the reboot, some I’ve even thought were kinda cool. When Trank cast Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm I was fine with it because Jordan was fantastic in Chronicle, Friday Night Lights, and Fruitvale Station. Leaning more toward the Ultimate FF4 origin story was OK, I mean I could live with it. “Thing”s started to get a little rocky with me when I saw this film’s version of my favorite ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing wouldn’t be wearing blue boxers, but I even let that one go. Now though, this latest trailer has pushed me over the line. What could possibly have started off this rant? (more…)
Hugh Jackman wasn’t the first choice to play Wolverine when X-Men was made over 15 years ago, but after six (and next maybe seven and eight) film appearances, it’s hard to imagine another actor stepping into those metal claws and mutton chops. Still, it’s likely a reality that we’ll have to embrace in the next couple of years as Jackman’s repeatedly stated that the upcoming third Wolverine solo movie will be his last as the mutant who’s the best at what he does. So what will this last Wolverine story be about? Well, that’s the question that Jackman is putting to you, the fans, in this first teaser image for the film. (more…)
Capping off a somewhat unlikely resurgence in popularity, Marvel’s Deadpool (created by the infamous Rob Liefeld) is ready to see big screen action when his film hits theaters onFebruary 12th 2016. Ryan Reynolds has kept fan interest alive with his series of amazing in-character tweets and photos, and Empire wants to take part in the fun as evidenced by these fun new images. They show off Deadpool looking ready for action, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and even a pre-Deadpool look at Wade Wilson himself with Copycat. Check these out! (more…)
There have been a lot of voices and faces attached to the role of The Joker over the years, some of them good, some of them not-so-much. Everyone has a favorite, however, and Mark Hamill is definitely one of the names that shines the brightest when it comes to bringing life to the animated version of one of Batman’s most infamous of villains. And now it looks like he’ll be returning to give it one more go. What’s more, it’s for an animated adaptation of one of the most-praised story arcs in the Batman world – Batman: The Killing Joke.

If you have a name like En Sabah Nur, you better believe that your decorating theme will be Egyptian. In the case of X-Men: Apocalypse though it also helps that the titular main villain is from Ancient Egypt. Despite the fact that he survived multiple millennia of history, Apocalypse still likes a little piece of home, even in the 1980s. A new photo from the set of Apocalypse reveals a look at En Sabah Nur’s lair, and from the look of it, it’s no X-Mansion. Of course, the first look at Apocalypse himself was less that seriously received by fans, but all things considered, you’re probably going to like his homebase. (more…)
Fox is firing up the preproduction for Gambit, an X-Men-franchise film set to start Channing Tatum in the title role. Taking what had been established in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and likely throwing it all out the window (along with that film’s Deadpool persona, even though that character was played by Ryan Reynolds and will be played by Reynolds again in the Deadpool solo film), the new solo-star film should start shooting in the last few months of this year. Today we get word that a casting call has gone out for several of the film’s main characters.
According to his Spotlight account (an active, online resume for actors), Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris will be joining the cast of Star Wars: Rogue One. BBC News noted that Aris added the role of Senator Jebel, which, if true, means he’ll be joining up with fellow Rogue One cast-mates Felicity Jones, Rizz Ahmed, Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn; and director Gareth Edwards.
While making the publicity rounds for their soon to release Vacation reboot writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein stopped by NPR to chat. NPR asked them the usual Vacation movie questions, but also threw in one last question about the new Spider-Man reboot, asking what fans could expect. (more…)
Hey, why isn’t Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin on Twitter? Because he’s already killed all 140 characters, that’s why! Ah-ha, that’s my favorite internet joke. But seriously, Martin has never been shy about letting his opinions be known, and he recently took to his blog to wax poetic about his displeasure with the current crop of bad guys being portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
