Captain America: Civil War comes out on video in a couple of weeks, so it seems like an excellent time to look back and consider all the things that weren’t in the movie. Yes, there were ideas and characters that were rumored to be a part of the story, and that’s despite the fact it had two teams of Avengers, a new villain, and no less than two major new heroes that were introduced. Civil War was stuffed, but how much more stuffed could have been in it? Joe and Anthony Russo address that in a recent interview, and they also discussed their thoughts about Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Julian Checkley took his Batman Cosplay based on the Batman: Arkham Origins video game to another level, adding gadget after gadget until breaking the Guinness World Record for Functional Gadgets on a Cosplay Suit. Yes, apparently that is a Guinness record, but then again, there’s always been some out-there records including the Guinness World record for holding the most Guinness World Records (Ashrita Furman 120 records). This is a fantastic Batman Suit with 23 fully functional gadgets. Let’s take a look. (more…)
You’ve heard of it whispered in the darkest corners of your high school experience, perhaps images of a defamatory news segments or a dorky cartoon flash through your head. You’ve seen the books, lining that section of your comic book store you never go to, dice of strange and unfamiliar shapes shoved into a free-for-all somewhere near the counter. You had a friend or a cousin who wouldn’t shut up about it, maybe made it sound appealing, but it still felt too weird for you. You remember catching the last quarter of a terrible movie about it on television during a mid-day time filler slot. Now, you’re starting to see it everywhere in your Facebook feed. You watched Vin Diesel play it, you saw Dan Harmon‘s HarmonQuest, and of course, people won’t shut up about the Demogorgon after watching Stranger Things. Now you feel like maybe you want to try out Dungeons and & Dragons, but you have no idea where to begin. Well keep reading, because now you’re going to be taken through how to start playing “D&D”.

The big budget modern day reboot of Power Rangers is set for a 2017 release. The cast and crew are keeping the details of the movie under wraps as much as possible. However Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Malcolm in the Middle), who is set to play Zordon has admitted his reluctance to taking the role and shed light on reports that this isn’t his first rodeo where Power Rangers is concerned.

We should have seen in this coming. The success of Deadpool earlier this year at the box office, has emboldened Rob Liefeld, who co-created Merc with the Mouth, to dig back into menagerie and see what else he can make a profit on. After all, everything else he’s ever done must be genius too, right? That assertion will be put to the test next year when Liefeld and Image Comics relaunch Youngblood, which was one of the founding books and a million seller for Image back in 1992. But this isn’t the same Youngblood from the 90s though, this is an all-new Youngblood that looks laid back and chill for the 20-teens. (more…)
Over the last few weeks, social media has been ablaze about problems behind the scenes of the 8th installment of the Fast & Furious franchise between actors Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel. The two superstars are reported to not be getting along while filming the latest film. Johnson first posted a cryptic message on social media talking about certain “Candy Asses” on set that doesn’t conduct themselves as professionals. After Internet sleuths went to work, it was confirmed that the person who he was referencing was co-star Vin Diesel. After it was outed that he was the culprit, Vin Diesel also took to social media and even made the statement that veteran actor Tommy Lee Jones was originally supposed to have the role of Hobbs and not Johnson. The rest of the cast has been mum when asked about the feud between the two. However, this “feud” might not have any legs.
Everyone’s favorite ragin’ Cajun can’t seem to catch a break. While the ‘Gambit’ movie has the potential to entice fans, production took a big hit when the film’s director, Doug Liman stepped down. By all appearances, the break seems to be mutual, however the movie has already had a troubled start. This marks the second director that has left the project. This comes after a filming schedule has already been decided upon.
It is only fair that a movie about one of Marvel’s most powerful female heroes, gets a powerful female director. Marvel’s ‘Captain Marvel’, starring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, has narrowed down the field to a short list of possible directors to helm the film. (more…)
