Zack Snyder may not have been able to finish executing his full vision for Justice League, but he was around long enough to make sure he got to squeeze in a little cameo. But were you able to spot the director in the movie? As Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner reveals, he was definitely there, but he may have been a little hard to spot.

Fabian Wagner, who worked on Justice League, recently gave a pretty in-depth interview on his experience with the movie. At one point, he was asked about what kind of cameo he would have liked to have. He, personally, wanted to sneak himself in as Batman, but while answering, he also revealed where Zack Snyder's cameo takes place. Here's what he had to say.

"Should have done that but I'm too small for that. Ben is really big and very strong and he's a lot »

Last Jedi Excitement Helps End of Year Theater Stocks Rise

9 hours ago

While Star Wars: The Last Jedi isn't tracking as well as 2015's The Force Awakens, its projected earnings are raising the stock prices of movie theater chains. Disney and Lucasfilm are looking at Rian Johnson's Star Wars installment to easily break the $200 million mark in North America on its opening weekend. J.J. Abrams' installment earned a whooping $248 million in its debut weekend and in comparison, Rogue One earned $155.1 million in its opening weekend. The Last Jedi stands to be the highest grossing opening weekend for the year, beating Disney's Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, which earned $174.8 million.

The Last Jedi is tracking so well for the end of the year that it has helped to raise the stock prices of movie theater chains across the board. AMC shares led all of competition, increasing nearly 5% to finish at $13.65. That's still far below where they began the year at »

Doctor Doom Is Rogue One Actor's Dream Role

9 hours ago

If we ever get to see Doctor Doom again on the big screen, we now have a pretty solid candidate to play the part. Ben Mendelsohn, the man behind Orson Krennick in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has made it clear he would love to play Victor Von Doom, given the chance. We already know he can play a solid bad guy, and Doctor Doom is among the best of Marvel's bad guys. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.

"Doctor Doom is the greatest comic character of all time. That's a great role. The thing that's appealing about Victor is the damage and trauma, the loss of the family, the wrong done to him and then the takeover, the revenge, and then the protectiveness of Latveria wrapped in that Cold War vibe. There's something about the combination of that. »

Disney, Menzel and Lovato Get Sued Over Frozen Song Let It Go

10 hours ago

Disney may be having to open up their pocketbook in the wake of a new Frozen lawsuit. The Mouse House is being sued by musician Jaime Ciero, who claims the studio, as well as artists Idina Menzel and Demi Lovato, ripped off one of his songs for Let it Go from Frozen. If it's true, Ciero could be awarded millions and, more importantly for Disney, it could have major implications for Frozen and the sequel Frozen 2.

A new report reveals that Jaime Ciero is suing Disney over his song Volar, which was released in 2008. Though it's mostly in Spanish, he claims that the song was the basis for Let it Go, which wound up being one of the biggest hits of 2014, in addition to being featured in a movie that grossed more than $1 billion at the box office. As such, there are millions of dollars at stake here. He »

Jake Gyllenhaal Wants Batman Role, Warner Bros. Isn't So Sure

10 hours ago

A new report suggest that Jake Gyllenhaal is really interested in playing the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves' The Batman, but Warner Bros. isn't super into the idea. The news comes after a rumor started to circulate that Gyllenhaal and Reeves were in talks about the role a few weeks ago in the event that Ben Affleck doesn't return. It's been widely reported that Ben Affleck won't be returning to play Bruce Wayne again and is rumored to publicly split from The Batman after the Justice League promotional tour ends.

The new report comes from Reddit, so it's best to approach this news like it was Joker, naked, in a dark alleyway offering you a coke with no ice in a bottle at midnight. The new report suggests that talking to other actors was a tactic to try and rope Ben Affleck into more movies, but the most interesting »

Chewbacca Lookalike Wins National Dog Show, Internet Freaks Out

11 hours ago

For many, the National Dog Show is a time-honored Thanksgiving tradition. Much in the same way that Turkey and stuffing are for many families. Those who watched the show last night witnessed history as a Brussels Griffon named Newton won the coveted Best in Show, which is the top prize given at the annual event. This marks the first time a Brussels Griffon won the award, but everyone was much more obsessed with the fact that Newton looks a lot like a tiny version of Star Wars icon Chewbacca.

"Is Newton the Brussels Griffon the National Dog Show winner, or a miniature Chewbacca? You Decide."

Yes, the 3-year-old Brussels Griffon who beat out six other challengers for Best in Show happens to look an awful lot like Han Solo's trusty co-pilot from Star Wars. And people noticed. Newton beat out an American Staffordshire terrier, a French bulldog, an Old English sheepdog, »

Michael Pena's Sci-Fi Thriller Extinction Gets Pulled from Release

11 hours ago

With almost exactly two months left before its release, Universal Pictures has yanked the upcoming Extinction from its January 26, 2018 release date. No reasoning for the release date shift was given, although it's not surprising, since, with just a few months left before the release, no promotional materials have debuted, including, trailers, posters and photos. Still, the studio hasn't issued a replacement release date for this sci-fi thriller, so it's possible that it could just be pushed until later in 2018.

The movie was set to go up against 20th Century Fox's The Maze Runner: The Death Cure and Studio 8's White Boy Rick on January 26, 2018, which would have arrived a few weeks after the first movie of 2018, which also belongs to Universal, the Insidious sequel entitled Insidious: The Last Key, which is the only movie to open in wide release on January 5, 2018. Also slated for release that month are Lionsgate's The Commuter, »

It's been a long time coming, but the Gambit movie is finally, actually going to begin filming in just a few short months. Channing Tatum pretty much willed this movie into existence several years ago, via his desire to play the fan-favorite X-Men character.

13 hours ago

The Spawn reboot is currently in pre-production and, though Todd McFarlane is busy working on his directorial debut, he's been finding time to keep us updated on the movie. It's expected to start filming in February and that means they're in the middle of location scouting. Though the movie may not be shot on location, McFarlane has revealed that the new Spawn movie will primarily take place in New York City. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"There are different places that give incentives for you to come and shoot the movies there.

Math Nerds Will Love These New Infinity War Fan Posters

14 hours ago

Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be one of next year's most highly-anticipated movies, and last week, a report claimed that fans heading to theaters to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also get to see the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. One super fan awaiting this trailer is digital artist BossLogic, who spent part of his holiday weekend creating new posters for Avengers: Infinity War, which by no means are official posters sanctioned by Marvel Studios. But they are unique and creative. They all take a unique, math-based approached at the title in quite the creative way.

For those of you who may not be so mathematically-inclined, there is an actual symbol for infinity, which is essentially a sideways 8, so BossLogic decided to have some fun by integrating the infinity symbol into the Infinity War title, while using the six Infinity Stones that Thanos (Josh Brolin »

Venom Movie Unleashes Dark, Powerful Carnage Says Tom Hardy's Trainer

14 hours ago

Tom Hardy has been training with Mma fighter Nathan Jones for Eddie Brock's massive transformation into Venom. Jones has now declared that the world isn't ready for what Hardy is about to unleash. Unlike the agile, nimble, more slender build of Peter Parker's Spider-Man, Eddie Brock's Venom is a much larger, more intimidating character. To prepare for the role of the roided-up Symbiote anti-hero, Tom Hardy has been training with Jones and weight trainer Mark Mene and they have released a new video of Hardy preparing for his role.

Production for Venom is currently underway and we have seen a few pictures and short clips from the set, but the new video showing off Tom Hardy's training regimen in the most intense look that we've seen thus far. Both trainers Nathan Jones and Mark Mene promise a villain the likes of which have never been seen before. Mene had this to say. »

Mark Hamill Shares Thanksgiving Tribute to Carrie Fisher

15 hours ago

Master of social media, Mark Hamill took a break from trolling Star Wars fans over the Thanksgiving holiday and instead shared some humorous messages along with a heartfelt tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, his on-screen sister. The Luke Skywalker actor shared some Star Wars Thanksgiving-themed memes featuring Porgs taking over the holiday as well as Darth Vader cutting a turkey with his Lightsaber and a cornucopia featuring Bb-8, among others. Those tweets were all well and good and gave fans some laughs while celebrating, but it was his tribute to Carrie Fisher that really got everybody's attention.

It's hard to believe that The Last Jedi is less than a month away, but it's even harder to fathom that it's been nearly a year since we lost Carrie Fisher. It's tough for fans, but immensely harder on those who knew and loved her, like Mark Hamill. Hamill took to Twitter »

Uma Thurman Breaks Silence on Weinstein: He Doesn't Deserve a Bullet

16 hours ago

Uma Thurman has officially broken her silence on Harvey Weinstein. Last month, the actress said that she would say more regarding Weinstein, who worked with her on some of her early big movies, like Pulp Fiction, when she was "less angry."

While wishing her Instagram followers a happy Thanksgiving, Uma Thurman decided to finally open up a bit about her experience with sexual misconduct in Hollywood. She made use of the popular #metoo hashtag that many people used in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to spread awareness of sexual harassment. While she didn't detail her experience, she did not mince words when speaking ill of Weinstein, who she feels is getting the slowly served fate he deserves. Here's what she had to say. »

Zack Snyder's Son Reviews Justice League, Takes Swipe at Warner Bros.

17 hours ago

While Zack Snyder claims he hasn't seen Justice League, another member of the family has become the mouthpiece in terms of criticism pointed at the theatrically released version of the movie. He has shared his views with fans, and doesn't hesitate to take a swipe at Warner Bros. and their meddling. Over all, he doesn't slam or bash the movie, and claims to like it for the most part.

That can't be said for the majority. Critics and fans have had a lot to say about Justice League, most of it on the harsher side. But there are plenty of DC fans that are really happy with the way the movie came out. Within the faction of fans and critics who didn't like Justice League, there are people who are still holding out hope to one day see director Zack Snyder's original cut, before Joss Whedon came on board and "tampered" with Snyder's vision. »

Rey's Parents Finally Revealed in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Game?

17 hours ago

Even before The Force Awakens hit theaters, people were wondering about Rey's parents. And it has become one of the bigger mysteries behind the new Star Wars trilogy. Star Wars: The Last Jedi promises to give us the definitive answer in a few short weeks. But suave players who have finished the new Star Wars: Battlefront 2 video game think they have it figured out. Rey's parents are a pair known as Iden Versio and Del Meeko.

Who? Well, they are two official Star Wars canon characters introduced in the new Battlefront 2 game. And it makes sense. Most fans have long suspected that Rey is not Luke Skywalker's daughter or even blood relative. She's not Kylo Ren's sister, despite her connection to Han Solo, and that controversial Leia hug at the end of Star Wars 7. As often prophesied, Rey's parents are two individuals who were not connected to the original trilogy. »

23 November 2017 11:31 AM, PST

Porgs are everywhere these days and they are either hated or loved by Star Wars fans. Even the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi can't figure out if they love them or hate them.
