Fox’s upcoming Logan movie marks the end of an era. Since 2000, Hugh Jackman has given us our cinematic version of Wolverine, the clawed mutant who has been the central player in all of the X-Men movies. The 48-year-old is ready to hang up his claws as Logan will be his final outing as the particular character. While Jackman has left the door open for a possible Wolverine return (if Fox and Marvel Studios ever play nice, he would love to be in an Avengers movie), this is probably his last outing. This also marks the end for Sir Patrick Stewart as well for playing the role of Professor Charles Xavier. There has been no “official” confirmation that Stewart is done with the role, until now.

The CW Has Found Its Black Lightning!

One of the earliest African American superheroes in DC comics, Black Lightning‘s first story was published in 1977. Forty years later, The CW has finally offered the hero the pilot for his own television series, after it was passed up by Fox. With Salim Akil directing the pilot, Mara Brock Akil and Greg Berlanti on board to develop the character and Sarah Schecter also involved in executive production, the show is now well under way in terms of production and it’s now only a matter of time before we finally get to see Black Lightning on screen.

Castlevania. It’s long been one of Nintendo‘s marquee game franchise going back to the first Castlevania on the original NES way back in 1986. As the systems have been upgraded, so have the games, and like every other vampire hunter before him, Simon Belmont’s campaign to destroy all vampires has been ongoing and never-ending. The battle will move to Netflix later this year with a new animated series, and we’ve gotten our first piece of art from the show. Nothing flashy, just a poster, but it does set a tone. The moat beneath Castlevania is about to run red with blood. (We presume). (more…)

Marvel Editor and Chief Axel Alonso tweeted out a new image today titled Batch H. The entire image, which you can see after the jump, quickly brings to mind that quote from Jurassic Park: Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should. We’ll leave that question for you to decide, but it could be a fascinatingly fun new character if done well.

Nice day for a white funeral… Not quite how the song goes, but that’s the way Jason Blossom’s funeral ended up going thanks to Cheryl in this week’s Riverdale. The intrigue factor was ratcheted up to 11 this week, perhaps in no small part because the setting moved to Thorn Hill, Riverdale’s own house on the hill, and a location ripe for Agatha Christie-like sleuthing and skullduggery. Some big pieces of the mystery were filled in this week as we discover things about secret romances, an ancient blood feud, and and maybe the scariest family this side of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and it kind of centres around our girl next door, Betty.

Not only does he have a kick-ass name, Rob Zombie (The Matrix, House of 1000 Corpses, and Daredevil) is going to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! This isn’t Zombie’s first time playing a cameo in one of James Gunn’s (Super, Dawn of the Dead, and Scooby-Doo) movies… or even his first time in a Guardians of the Galaxy flick so his return doesn’t come as much of a shock; more like a very welcome confirmation that the legendary musician and director is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and knowing him, he is going to do it with style. Not only does this news bring us those Happy Happy Joy Joy feelings, we also get to see the new movie theater standee released by the studio.

Things seemingly weren’t looking good for Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie. First there was the fallout of Batman v Superman which was panned by critics and rocked Affleck pretty hard – #SadAffleck. Then there was the uncertainty with the script, which Affleck had repeatedly said variations of “it’s ready when it’s ready” and “I won’t do it unless it’s perfect”. With the culminating pressure of starring in, writing, and directing one of the biggest comic book licenses of all time, Affleck had made the shocking announcement that he will no longer be directing The Batman. Some fans, of course, went into a tale spin over this, thinking the project was dead, that Affleck is done with Batman, and that he’s keeping his apathy silenced until Justice League rolls out.

Well, weary not Batfleck fans. The Batman is still on. The script is good. Affleck will once again don those Bat tights. And as word would have it, a replacement director has been confirmed.  (more…)

‘American Gods’ Finally Gets A Start Date

Starz has been creeping into the Original Programming territory for quite some time now. With such hits like Spartacus, Da Vinci’s Demons, Power, Black Sails, and Outlander, they have now caught up on the other pay channels in regards to providing quality Original Programming.
