Jason Momoa Details One Justice League Deleted Scene Featuring Aquaman And Diana

54 minutes ago

When one looks back on Justice League‘s trailer campaign, it becomes clear that Warner Bros. cut a lot of scenes in the build-up to November 17th.

Hell, some fans have even taken it upon themselves to launch a petition calling for Zack Snyder’s edition, one that’s purportedly “much longer” and teeming with cameos, to be released on home video. It’s since collected more than 100,000 signatures, which goes to show that when it comes to Justice League, that fabled director’s cut is no laughing matter. Indeed, if you’re curious, a ton of alleged deleted scenes leaked onto the interwebs just this morning, including one in which Cyborg learns to fly.

Now, Jason Momoa has peeled back the curtain just a little bit more to describe a deleted scene featuring Diana Prince and his Arthur Curry.

While chatting to Rajeev Masand (via ComicBook.com), Momoa spoke about his history with Aquaman, »

Friday The 13th Helmer Reveals His Insane Pitch For A Jason Lives Follow-Up

1 hour ago

Almost 30 years ago, director Tom McLoughlin brought Jason Voorhees back from the brink for the appropriately titled sequel, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. But it turns out McLoughlin initially planned for a follow-up back in ’86, and let’s just say things got weird.

While appearing on the latest episode of Post Mortem (with a tip of the hat to Bloody Disgusting), Tom McLoughlin spoke to fellow horror director Mick Garris about his proposed Jason Lives sequel, and how it would’ve drafted comedy duo Cheech and Chong (!) into the equation.

As McLoughlin recalls down below, this idea came into being soon after producer Frank Mancuso Jr. discovered that New Line held the screen rights to Freddy Krueger, thereby nixing any potential crossover with A Nightmare on Elm Street at the time.

[Producer] Frank Mancuso Jr. came to me… he wanted me to do another film after we did [Jason Lives]. He said, »

Zack Snyder’s Deleted Justice League Scenes Leak Online

1 hour ago

These days, every big budget comic book movie is met with speculation about the amount of “studio interference” involved in production, but with Justice League, this speculation is augmented by the question of where director Zack Snyder’s work ends, and where the additional material and reshoots of Joss Whedon begins.

This is because Snyder had to depart the project after filming had ended, and Whedon – who had already been working on the script – was drafted in to handle post-production and reshoots. Producer Charles Roven subsequently conceded that the theatrical release consisted of about 15-20% Joss Whedon footage, but we suspect that might be underselling it a bit.

Now, six days on from release, and fans are already petitioning Warner Bros. for a Director’s Cut – that online petition has so far garnered more than 100,000 signatures – while Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, believes there is enough leftover footage to make a second movie. »

Here’s What X-23 May Look Like As All-New Wolverine

2 hours ago

Between them, 20th Century Fox, James Mangold (Logan) and comic book scribe Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) are dreaming up a spinoff movie for X-23, the young mutant brought to life with real intensity by the up-and-coming Dafne Keen.

It’s still gestating in the formative stages of development, mind you, given Fox only made the project official late last month, but thanks to concept artist Masaolab (via ComicBook.com), we now have a sneak peek at what Dafne Keen may look like as “All-New Wolverine.”

Kitted out in full X-Men gear, this concept art is something special, as it imagines Laura/X-23 donning the adamantium claws as Wolverine’s one true successor. Loosely based on the aesthetic of Tom Taylor’s comic book series, below you’ll see Keen in action as X-23, who appears to be smashing her way through some sort of concrete wall. In addition, there’s »

John Boyega Says The Porgs Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Can Be “Really Freaky”

2 hours ago

What are porgs, exactly?

That’s a very good question. For one, they’re the flightless, bug-eyed avians that are native to Ahch-To, the oceanic planet on which Luke Skywalker first comes into contact with Rey. But are they food, or friends?

It’s a conundrum that has stirred up heated debate within the Star Wars community, and we fully expect that conversation to roll over until The Last Jedi‘s release on December 15th. But as part of its ongoing coverage, Entertainment Weekly has today unveiled the closest thing to a porg investigation as we’re likely to get, and it turns out John Boyega (Finn) isn’t all that fussed on Ahch-To’s furry critters.

I just remember doing some stuff and seeing a lot of porgs around. And they are interesting, but for me, I had a love/hate relationship with them. They’re very, very cute, »

Joss Whedon Directed This Key Batman Scene In Justice League

2 hours ago

These days, every big budget comic book movie is met with speculation about the amount of “studio interference” involved in production, but with Justice League, this speculation is augmented by the question of where director Zack Snyder’s work ends, and where the additional material and reshoots of Joss Whedon begins.

This is because Snyder had to depart the project after production ended, and Whedon – who had already been working on the script – was drafted in to handle post-production and reshoots. Producer Charles Roven subsequently conceded that the theatrical release then consisted of about 15-20% Joss Whedon footage, but fans suspect that may be underselling it a bit.

Now, as the film defies expectation and actually gains momentum at the box office, after a somewhat muted start, actor Holt McCallany (star of the Netflix series Mindhunter), has shed some interesting light on his own involvement in the movie, and the »

New Justice League Art Reveals The Caped Crusader’s Batbike

3 hours ago

From the Flying Fox to the souped-up Batwing, it’s fair to say Bruce Wayne brought the big guns to Justice League.

But it seems the Caped Crusader’s arsenal was actually trimmed prior to release, as production designer Patrick Tatopoulos (via ComicBook.com) has posted some never-before-seen concept art of the Batbike. And whereas the Batpod was the hulking beast of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, what with its front-mounted cannons and plane-sized tires, this so-called Batbike is much more angular in its design, which is arguably inspired by the wings of a bat more than anything else. How very fitting.

Sadly, it never made the cut, and that’s really been the story of Justice League ever since Warner’s big-budget ensemble piece fell flat on November 17th. Six days on, and fans are now petitioning Warner Bros. for a director’s cut – that online petition has »

Stellar Fan Art Imagines Jude Law As Mar-Vell In The Captain Marvel Movie

3 hours ago

BossLogic is at it again.

With news that Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) is being courted for the Captain Marvel movie, BossLogic has produced a rather stellar piece that imagines The Young Pope actor as Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell).

He is, in a nutshell, the mentor figure for Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who is imbued with superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight soon after her DNA is infused with that of an extra-terrestrial. Now that’s what I call a close encounter.

As for BossLogic’s beautiful rendering, the prolific concept artist has gone for a more classic-inspired look while creating Jude Law’s Mar-Vell. In the comics, that character is often portrayed in military garb, or as a high-ranking Kree soldier, though without any official details to consult, it’s impossible to gauge the direction Marvel will eventually take. Still, if nothing else, »

Four International TV Spots For The Last Jedi Highlight Rey And The Returning C-3Po

4 hours ago

The Lucasfilm marketing machine is really beginning to fire on all cylinders.

With little over three weeks until D-day, the Powers That Be have dropped four – count ’em, four – international spots for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and they each show Rey wrangling with her newfound abilities.

Having made contact with the wayward Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To, The Last Jedi is all about Rey gaining a better understanding of the Force – the light side, the dark side, and that all-important balance between the two – though Luke is wary that her unbridled power will lead her down a dark and dangerous road, from which there is no return.

And you can hardly blame him, given he watched Ben Solo (Aka Kylo Ren) reduce his Jedi Academy to ash and rubble all those years ago. Rey is adamant that she won’t succumb to the dark side (“Kylo failed you, I won »

Does This Justice League Easter Egg Set Up Gotham City Sirens?

14 hours ago

Justice League might not be the hit that Warner Bros. were no doubt hoping it would be, but there really is much for fans to love in the movie – no one can deny that. As it brings together six of the DC universe’s biggest names, there’s a lot of history to draw from and, while it doesn’t have much time to do that in its surprisingly lean 120 minute runtime, it tries its best to call back to a few classic comic book arcs and characters, as well as paying homage to previous DC pics that have come before.

Those who’ve seen it will know that a fair bit of Justice League takes place in Gotham and the filmmakers don’t miss the opportunity to squeeze in a few references to Batman’s friends and foes along the way. For example, we get Alfred’s lament about the dangerous threat of Steppenwolf. »

Nightwing Director Promises A Completely Different Take On The Character

15 hours ago

Knowing how broad the horizon is when it comes to DC films said to be arriving in theaters over the course of the next few years, we’ll be bold in saying that the movie we’re most looking forward to in a post-Justice League world may very well be Nightwing. Sure, we still love Batman himself, but we’ve grown quite accustomed to seeing him on the big screen and, let’s face it, a picture focused squarely on the Boy Wonder grown up is long, long overdue.

Luckily, it sounds like Warner Bros. have found the right guy to sit in the director’s chair, that being Chris McKay. Having already made the studio some serious dough with The Lego Batman Movie, the filmmaker looks to continue his stay in Gotham City. Truth be told, we were a bit concerned as to whether he was the man for the job at first, »

6 Major Things Justice League Changed From The Comics

17 hours ago

The world was introduced to the first iteration of the Justice League back in March 1960 in The Brave and the Bold #28, and since then, the superhero team has become one of the most beloved properties in comic book history. Although individual members of the League have been adapted to film and television since the group’s conception, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s recent pic is the first time that DC Comics’ greatest heroes have come together on the big screen.

Surprisingly, with five decades worth of source material, the biggest influence on Justice League comes from the New 52 reboot of the title, which kicked off in 2011. Written by Geoff Johns, the storyline saw Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman and Green Lantern come together to face Darkseid and his army of Parademons – which no single hero could have tackled alone.

Joss Whedon Is Still Working On Batgirl, After All

18 hours ago

Earlier today, a new rumour flared up that told us Joss Whedon had been removed from the upcoming Batgirl pic by Warner Bros. According to Super Bro Movies, the underwhelming response to Justice League, which Whedon carried to the finished line, made them think twice about entrusting another one of their projects to the former Marvel director.

A little while later, however, the site removed their article amid claims that WB had got in contact and would shortly be making an official statement to clear up the confusion. While we haven’t received any word from the studio just yet, a conflicting report has now arrived which refutes the prior story and states that Joss Whedon is still attached to Batgirl, after all.

As EW has it, Whedon is secure in his place on the movie and is currently working on the script. The site does caution that this could change in future, »

The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson Offers Brief Status Update On His New Star Wars Trilogy

19 hours ago

Rian Johnson has been entrusted with Lucasfilm’s fourth Star Wars trilogy.

Two weeks ago, the Powers That Be formally announced that Johnson, writer and director on The Last Jedi, would spearhead three brand new Star Wars films replete with new characters, an original story, and a whole new setting, which is to say that it’ll take place in a different pocket of that famous, far-away galaxy. How’s that for a blank canvas?

It is, in essence, the stuff dreams are made of, and we can’t imagine there are many filmmakers out there who would think twice about creating three totally original instalments in what is arguably the biggest franchise in entertainment. And though there are precious few details currently available – Rian Johnson is seemingly at the “very beginning” of the creative process – the filmmaker himself told YouTuber Kenna McHugh (via Screen Rant) that there is “just »

We Now Know Who Jude Law May Be Playing In Captain Marvel

20 hours ago

Forget Dr. Watson and 221b Baker Street; former Sherlock Holmes star Jude Law is now in contention to play Doctor Walter Lawson (Aka Mar-Vell) opposite Brie Larson in the Captain Marvel movie.

News broke earlier this afternoon, when Variety revealed that Law had entered talks to join the 2019 spinoff. Should a deal place, he’ll play the film’s male lead alongside Larson and, presumably, Star Wars alum Ben Mendelsohn. That post has since been updated to include the most pertinent line of the lot: Jude Law’s character, Walter Lawson, will be the all-wise mentor for Carol Danvers as she begins to wrangle her superhuman powers under control.

Indeed, those familiar with Marvel Comics will know all too well that Doctor Walter Lawson originally held the title of Captain Marvel, though it’s unclear if that lore will be woven into the fabric of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s solo movie. »

Matt Smith’s Phillip Takes The Spotlight In New Trailer For The Crown Season 2

20 hours ago

With its arrival on the streaming service just over two weeks away, Netflix’s promotion for The Crown season 2 is in full swing. Following on from the full-length trailer that dropped earlier this month, we’re now getting smaller teasers that hint at each of the major characters’ storylines. Last week it was Margaret’s turn, and this week, we’ve got a trailer dedicated to Matt Smith’s Prince Phillip.

The footage reveals that we’ll see Phillip’s childhood during World War II explored in the new season. Meanwhile, in the present day of the series, his marriage to Elizabeth will continue to be strained under the weight of the monarchy and Phillip’s urge to stretch his wings. However, it also makes clear the deep affection between the pair, with Phillip proclaiming that he knows his wife more than he knows himself.

Rumor: The Zack Snyder Cut Of Justice League Is “Much Longer” And Includes More Cameos

20 hours ago

You didn’t think The Batman would be the only DC property mentioned in a 4chan leak now, did you?

Amid chatter that Matt Reeves’ solo movie will be a decade-spanning yarn that pits the Caped Crusader against Deathstroke, the masked vigilante to be played by Joe Manganiello, the rumor mill has churned out another speculative tidbit – only this time, the focus has been shifted back toward Justice League.

Now playing in theaters across the globe, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s team-up movie has been dogged by mediocre reviews ever since its release on November 17th. It looks like things will only get worse before they get better though, what with analysts claiming Justice League will now limp miserably toward a $700 million box office tally, despite initial estimations projecting a billion-dollar home run for the suits at Warner Bros.

But there is an S-shaped light at the end of the tunnel – and no, »

Rumor: Deathstroke Still Involved In The Batman, But Lex Luthor Will Be Pulling The Strings

21 hours ago

Is there another project in Hollywood that has attracted the same number of conflicting reports as The Batman?

Even before Matt Reeves signed on to direct, the mooted DC solo flick was dogged by countless rumors – rumors that have only intensified now that Justice League is out in the wild. The latest concerns Ben Affleck and, specifically, his future in the DC Extended Universe.

Despite going on record time and time again about his commitment to the role, recently there have been some tell-tale signs that Affleck’s time in the cape and cowl is coming to an end, with Reeves said to be eyeing up Jake Gyllenhaal as a potential replacement. If true, it would have massive ramifications for the Dceu, as Gyllenhaal would surely take point for the inevitable Justice League sequel.

But until we have some answers to those questions, Reddit has uncovered a new 4chan leak »

Scotland Yard Investigating New Sexual Assault Allegation Against Kevin Spacey

21 hours ago

UK police are investigating new accusations of sexual harassment made against Kevin Spacey.

The alleged incident took place in 2005, when Spacey was still serving as artistic director of London’s Old Vic theater. This new allegation was brought to the attention of Scotland Yard mere days after the Old Vic posted results from its own internal investigation, confirming 20 personal testimonies of alleged inappropriate behavior. Neither Kevin Spacey nor his representatives have responded at press time.

Similar to the 2008 assault, this new claim alleges an assault took place on a man in Lambeth back in 2005, which is just a stone’s throw away from the Old Vic. Scotland Yard has since confirmed officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are looking into the complaint.

In its statement last week, the renown theater said it “truly apologizes” for not creating a safe, stable work environment:

Will X-Men: Dark Phoenix Kill Off One Of These Major Characters?

22 hours ago

The latest mainline film in the X-Men franchise, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, has now wrapped. Despite principal production having finished though, we still know surprisingly little about the movie. That being said, the title tells us quite a bit to start with, as Dark Phoenix will tackle the iconic comic book storyline of Jean Grey’s descent into darkness, and will hopefully prove to be a much more successful attempt than X-Men: The Last Stand

Now, thanks to a new report from That Hashtag Show, we might just know the exact incident that causes Sophie Turner’s telepathic mutant to turn to the dark side. Ths’ sources allege that Dark Phoenix will feature a sequence where Jean attempts to unleash her powers but fails to control them – killing a long-running character in the process. Though the report didn’t note who exactly will meet their maker, the character in question is »
