We’ve talked so much about Deadpool 2, but it feels like there’s still so little we know about it, especially in terms of who’s going to be in it. Obviously, Ryan Reynolds will be back as the Merc with the Mouth, and so will Colossus, and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. It was also recently announced that Atlanta star Zazie Beetz will play Domino in the highly-anticipated sequel, but we keep futzing with the real casting announcement we’ve been desperate to hear about since the post-credits scene of Deadpool: Who the heck is playing Cable?! Well, that answer may be coming soon.  (more…)

 

Normally, being greeted by people shouting “Hail HYDRA!” is a cause for concern, but when it’s done to welcome Brett Dalton, the turncoat Agent Grant Ward from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.… Well, it’s still not ideal, but it is understandable. Dalton was part of the show from the beginning, but his character was killed off in season three, and then he played the alien Inhuman possessing the body of Ward in the second half of that season before being killed off again. But things are looking up for Dalton because Ward is back. In alternative universe form! (more…)

Beauty and the Beast debuted in it’s opening weekend, smashing box office records and sucking in cash, making it unequivocally the most successful of the Disney live action remakes thus far, and it’s only in its first weekend. Disney has quite a few more of these live action remakes planned, and with the money they seem to be making, why would they stop now?

The latest collaboration between Netflix and Marvel, Iron Fist hit the streaming service this past weekend. While the show has not been well received by critics, it was still well watched this weekend by fans of the MCU. The show was trending on social media all weekend and has an audience score of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, so the jury’s out on a whole. The show followed Danny Rand as he returned to New York after a 15-year absence training in the mystical land of K’un-Lun. Comic book fans wanted to see Danny Rand in his classic Iron Fist costume that we all know and love from the comics. Unfortunately, the show confirmed that he will not don the Iron Fist costume on the show (at least in the first season). That doesn’t mean that we didn’t see it on the show, though.

In the world of Gotham, they are the prototypical dynamic duo. David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee were the first celebrity guest panel on Saturday at Toronto ComiCon, and the pair got to be significantly more light-hearted then they’re allowed to be on their TV show. Mazouz gave a hearty “Hello. Toronto,” far from being the broody pre-Batman Bruce Wayne, as he and Pertwee dug in and answered questions about the show and offered a couple of hints about what’s to come as season three draws to a close.  (more…)

Despite all the crap dumped on The Phantom Menace, people seem to universally agree that Ray Park as Darth Maul was one of the best parts of the film. It’s probably why he was given a hero’s welcome at Toronto ComiCon Friday night as he was ushered in to “The Imperial March” with an entourage from the charity cosplayers of the 501st Legion (and one little girl in a Wonder Woman costume).  (more…)

In the previous post, you got a taste of what the cosplay at Toronto ComiCon looked like, but to the more professional and artistic standards of those that live and breath cosplay, the results from the weekend were even more amazing. For cosplayers looking to have their work appreciated on the basis of their skill, their imagination, and their sewing and sculpting ability, Toronto ComiCon was giving out daily awards, and for the judges, the sheer number of contestants made their life harder as they struggled to get the results in on time for the six o’clock awards show.
