After more than a few leaks and teases, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has taken to twitter to show of first full and fully official look at our new big screen iteration of the clown prince of crime. After seeing it, I am sure you’ll agree that it will be a rather polarizing take on the 75 year old beloved Batman villian.
So, ready to see your first look at Jared Leto as the Joker? (more…)
It’s never a bad idea to start ‘em young! J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer released last week, and some of the most vocal fans haven’t even learned to speak yet. Originally posted by America’s Funniest Home Videos, this video of babies going gaga over the new Star Wars trailer is now going viral. Giggles, gasps, and forgotten food ensue as the preview plays out before these youngsters’ eyes. (more…)
If you’re bored and want a little excitement in your nerdy life, just go down to your local comic shop, stroll in and loudly proclaim that there’s no way that Batman could ever beat Superman, or the Thing is stronger than the Hulk, or cross the DC/Marvel lines with one of my favorites – Who wins in a Namor/Aquaman fight? Bring some snacks, you’re most likely going to have someone take the bait and start a lively discussion. With Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice movie, the old Batman versus Superman fight topic is back on the top of the Who Would Win arguments happening in comic book shops, the back of school buses, and the Internet. Who better to answer the question of why Superman doesn’t just use his incredible powers to take out Batman in a single blow is Henry Cavill, that man who plays Superman himself. (more…)
These days, it’s not about the star, or the director, or even the project itself, it’s the release date. They say in real estate the three most important things are location, location, location, but usually there’s a house at that location, and not a vague reference to something that might be a house. Or it might be a parking lot or strip mall. Hollywood’s like that. We’re going to buy a piece of land, and build something there. It might be one story, or it might be seven stories. It might be a bungalow, or it might be a nuclear power plant. You know, whatever. The point is we got the land. In that spirit, Universal Pictures is playing musical chairs with their release dates, moving aside some hotly anticipated franchises in order to make room for the next chapter of newer, more valuable pieces.

To paraphrase the great 90s philosopher Forrest Gump, Life is like a Marvel Studios production, you never know what well-known character you’re going to get: Loki cosplays Captain America in Thor: The Dark World, Thor’s Lady Sif pops up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reference is embedded in Daredevil, and so on… But things have been kept pretty separate but equal in the realms of Marvel’s movie and TV division, although there could be some mingling of “church” and “state” on the small screen soon in the form of a pretty big cameo on Netflix’s Iron Fist. That’s right fans, let’s just say that Doctor Strange might not be the first chance you get to see Doctor Strange. (more…)
It’s not the Internet unless there is some online controversy to get all gabby about. Instead of the normal shenanigans from Miley Cyrus or ass-hatery from Kanye West, which we’ve all come to expect, this time it’s a couple of superheroes who have let slip a case of buffoonery.
During a recent Digital Spy interview Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, the two Age of Ultron stars were asked how they felt about Black Widow pairing up with Bruce instead of Hawkeye or Cap (as many fans had hoped), and replied by calling her a “slut” and a “whore”.
Couple of guys said something stupid while trying to be funny, and how quickly the fan-boys turn on them – judging them as bad people forever.
Watch the video below and judge for yourself. (more…)
Paul Rudd made an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman last night, bringing with him the clip of Scott Lang getting his hands on the Ant-Man suit for the first time! First appearances can often be deceiving and this one certainly was. (more…)
The commercial success of director Jonathan Liebesman‘s 2014 reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cannot be denied as much as many hard-core fans might want to wish it away into the cornfield. That financial success made a sequel a slam dunk for the beans counters over at Paramount. Word is that Megan Fox and Will Arnett are already signed and returning for the sequel with the Arrow‘s Stephen Amell locked in to play Casey Jones. Now word is making the Internet rounds that Tyler Perry is joining the cast and will play Baxter Stockman, the mad scientist and TMNT adversary. (more…)
One of the most poignant moments of 2012’s The Avengers was when everyman S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson played by Clark Gregg was killed in action while trying to stop Loki’s escape. It’s pivitol because Coulson’s death glavanized the team to put aside their own damage and fight the good fight to defeat Loki and his alien army; it was a bittersweet moment, but it defined what it mean to be an Avenger. And then ABC was looking to make a series called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it needed an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. to lead them, so Gregg got the call and Coulson came back from the dead. Naturally, the guy that killed Coulson in the first place, wasn’t pleased. (more…)
The agreement between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios got fans excited about the fact that Spider-Man will finally be able to take his rightful place next to Captain America, Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity. But with great franchise consolidation comes great new casting possibilities, and if you’re a white male teenager than you’re number might be coming up to take on the role of the Spectacular Spider-Man (the rumored title of the next solo film). Specifically, it seems that the great, wide potential casting list has been widdled down to five, and if you’re wondering what the next iteration of Spider-Man might look like under the mask, then prepare to look into the faces of the candidates who might next embody the film identity of Peter Parker.
