Well don’t count Johnson, or his ability to multitask, out yet when it comes to the DCEU. (more…)
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.

Sources have confirmed the main villain in the upcoming Wonder Woman film will be Ares, the God of Conflict. Although trailers have revealed most of the action appearing to take place on the battlefields of World War I, speculation has abounded that the Amazon superheroine would have a more formidable, super-powered rival in her solo big screen debut. Although actor Danny Huston has been cast as an antagonist of some kind, it’s unclear whether or not he and Ares, one of her primary antagonists from the comic books, will be one and the same or perhaps one working in service of the other.

More than 40,000 paintings, drawings, and other memorabilia would be donated to the museum. The museum location was a choice between San Francisco and Los Angeles for quite some time. It looks like a city has been chosen.
