New Justice League Petition Calls For Black Suit Superman Scene To Be Released

1 hour ago

Back in black? Not exactly.

Despite scores of rumors and half-baked story claims, Justice League never alluded to Black Suit Superman in any shape or form, leaving fans to wonder what could have been. And just as Henry Cavill teased viewers via Instagram throughout the film’s storied (messy?) production – not to mention those Justice League merchandise items depicting a black-suited Man of Steel – cinematographer Fabian Wagner has since confirmed that, yes, Cavill donned the famous armor on set. It just didn’t make the cut.

That’s something that can be said about a lot of Justice League content, given Warner Bros. reportedly placed a two-hour mandate on its DC mega-movie soon after Joss Whedon replaced Zack Snyder at the helm. As you surely know, a fan petition asking the studio to give us Snyder’s footage has already surpassed a staggering 150,000 signatures and continues to grow each and every day and now, »

Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke Gets A Gorgeous Legion Of Doom Poster

2 hours ago

For the longest time, Deathstroke was a rather obscure DC character. But, thanks in large part to Arrow, the world’s deadliest mercenary permeated the mainstream, with appearances in video games such as Batman: Arkham Origins and animated films like Son of Batman also doing wonders to help his cause.

Much to our delight, Slade Wilson’s future is looking brighter than ever now, as the character recently appeared in a post-credits scene for Justice League, in addition to Warner Bros. kicking around the idea for a solo film. That’s all hugely exciting, especially because Joe Manganiello is absolutely perfect in the role and it seems that he has a bright future in the DC Extended Universe.

There’s the standalone outing we just mentioned, which is being helmed by director Gareth Evans and is looking to Gods of War, Tony S. Daniel and Sandu Florea’s comic series »

Deadpool 2 Title Revealed?

2 hours ago

It’s rather fitting that the Deadpool 2 marketing campaign is as cheeky and unpredictable as its titular lead.

From Thanksgiving treats to Bob Ross-inspired trailers (“and remember, hugs and drugs”), the Powers That Be have wholeheartedly embraced the Merc’s irreverent style, which, in turn, has allowed Ryan Reynolds to do what he does best: serve up funny and often deadpan tweets to his legions of followers. And the actor’s latest post certainly honored that tradition.

Via Twitter, Reynolds unveiled a striking piece of artwork earlier this week that imagined Deadpool and Cable in the Creation of Adam, Michelangelo’s biblical painting that’s etched into the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. But this is not the Vatican City. And let’s face it: neither Wade Wilson nor Nathan Summers are terribly religious. Instead, the tongue-in-cheek promo is designed to drum up excitement for the second coming, as »

Dear Warner Bros., Please Start Giving Your DC Characters The Films They Deserve

4 hours ago

Dearest Warner Bros.,

As a lifelong fan of all things DC, I feel it’s time that I speak loudly on behalf of fans who’ve been enjoying the ride, yet are willing to admit that not all is right when it comes to the way our favorite superheroes are being handled on film. Of course, some restructuring is taking place under your roof in the wake of Justice League not meeting financial expectations at the box office, but it’s time for the right folks to be held accountable because what’s been going on lately simply isn’t working.

Now, before I proceed any further, I realize that a percentage of absolutist fanboys are likely checking out after reading only the headline or opening paragraph, perhaps saying something as absurd as “Marvel is paying this guy to write this.” Sure, I enjoy the Big Two like most open-minded geeks, »

Every Movie Coming In 2018 That Should Be On Your Radar

4 hours ago

Sometimes, we can look ahead to a coming year’s movie release schedule and feel less than enthused about what’s in the pipeline. 2018, though, is most assuredly not one of those occasions.

The next calendar year looks set to deliver something for everyone. From superheroes and family fare, to horrors and thrillers; from big studio comedies and smaller, indie films, to interesting documentaries and true-story dramas – 2018 is already packed with arrival slots for some very exciting films.

While the release date for any movie is obviously subject to change, we’ve gone through the next 12 months and put together a comprehensive preview of all the releases you need to watch out for in 2018. Suffice it to say, it’s going to be a very busy year for film, but a very exciting one, too. »

10 Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

4 hours ago

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here, and it’s being met with widespread critical acclaim. That said, there is a certain disquiet rumbling amongst a subset of the fandom due to the movie’s bold choices and unexpected turns. In contrast to the familiar, nostalgia-tinged The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi is keen to challenge our presumptions about the saga.

All that said, it’s still made with a lot of love for what has come before and as such features many a nod to the previous films in the franchise. There are some great obvious ones, for example, such as R2-D2 replaying Leia’s hologram message from A New Hope, the attack on Crait calling back to the Battle of Hoth and, last but not least, the poorly-kept secret that was Yoda’s cameo.

However, Episode VIII also features a lot of callbacks and references that are much easier to miss. »

9 Characters Marvel Got From Fox Who We Can’t Wait To See In The McU

5 hours ago

It’s official. Disney now owns 21st Century Fox and its high-profile film franchises after concluding a deal worth $52.4 billion. It’s a monumental and game-changing piece of business that’s set to change the landscape of cinema and comic book movies forever. Heck, this means that Disney now owns 27% of the entire film industry. Subsequently, it means that Marvel holds the rights for the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool again.

With these characters back in Marvel’s playpen, anything is truly possible in the McU now and we should start seeing it expanding and including all these new players in the not-too-distant future. That said, due to the nature and pace of the industry, some of them might take a little while to enter the fray, while others could be primed and ready to make their McU debuts as soon as possible.

Either way, we’ve »

New Avengers: Infinity War Poster Finds Captain America In A Burning Wakanda

17 hours ago

Is there another Marvel setting that evokes the same feelings of awe and wonder as Wakanda?

Sure, Asgard has its gilded corridors of power – not to mention the resplendent Bifröst Bridge – but when it comes to sheer spectacle, Wakanda is practically in a league of its own. That was one of the big concerns going into Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: how will Marvel’s special effects gurus render such a wondrous, ultra-futuristic utopia?

Well, if the initial trailers for the film are any indication, Coogler and his team have knocked it out of the park, laying the foundation for what will supposedly be a big, operatic family drama centering on T’Challa, the would-be king of Wakanda. But that won’t be the only time in the near future when we take a trip to the fictional country, as Avengers: Infinity War will be heading back there as well, »

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure Doing Much Better On Television

17 hours ago

Frozen was and is a bona fide cultural phenomenon and I’m willing to bet Frozen 2 will make similarly big waves at the box office. However, it seems that the general moviegoing public does have limits as to how much Frozen they want in their lives. At least, judging by the frosty (get it?) reception received by the 22 minute short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure that was screened before Pixar’s Coco. The reaction to it’s been so bad, in fact, that Disney actually pulled the damn thing from all screenings of the film.

Aside from 22 minutes seriously stretching the definition of an animated ‘short,’ Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is a nauseatingly calculated slice of faux-holiday cheer delivered by a gurning snowman monstrosity that only just squeaked into ‘likeable’ territory in the original film. Worse yet, it simply lacked the spark of comedy, adventure and fairytale sincerity that helped Frozen reach such a wide audience. »

Gwyneth Paltrow Marks Ten Years Of Iron Man And Pepper Potts With Cute Pic

18 hours ago

While Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts isn’t a hugely important part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s always nice to see her pop up in the movies. That said, her five year absence after Iron Man 3 led some to conclude that Marvel Studios had decided that it simply wasn’t affordable to continue her contract. That’s why it was such a surprise to see Pepper in the final scenes of this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, having apparently been busy running Stark Industries while its owner runs around endangering and then saving the world.

Potts is also due to turn up in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War and has recently been spending some time with Robert Downey Jr. At least, judging by this Instagram picture she posted earlier today, which came with the caption: Ten years of #pepperony

Disney CEO Touches Base On Plans For Their New Non-Marvel Franchises

18 hours ago

With the ink now drying on Disney‘s $52.4 billion merger with 21st Century Fox, much attention has been paid to the transfer of the X-Men and Fantastic Four rights and their future inclusion in a revamped Marvel Cinematic Universe. But that deal doesn’t just buy a load of superheroes, it’s given the studio the rights to many, many other movies franchises as well and now, Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that they’ll “look carefully” at their new IP lineup to work out what they can do with it.

Other than the Marvel stuff, probably the biggest coup for Disney is getting the full rights to James Cameron’s Avatar franchise. After all, they’ve already invested in Avatar for their World of Pandora theme parks and they’ll doubtless be eager for the upcoming sequels to smash the box office as widely open as the first one did. »

Does Star Wars: The Last Jedi Hint At A Rey/Poe Romance For Episode IX?

19 hours ago

No, it doesn’t. Next question.

Oh right, these articles are usually a bit longer than that. Right, well certain sites are currently speculating that the closing scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi hint at a future romance (Poemance?) between Daisy Ridley’s Jedi ingenue Rey and Oscar Isaac’s dashing pilot Poe Dameron. Now, the closing scenes do indeed see the two characters cross paths and they certainly look pleased to finally meet one another, but sparks of romance? Nah.

I mean, it’s not like it’s impossible that it’s going to happen, but it seems a bit unlikely. I suspect that, now that Finn has an unambiguous romantic interest, shippers are throwing whatever they can at the wall to see what sticks. Honestly though, if Rey is going to bump uglies with anyone in these films it’s far more likely to be Adam Driver »

Oscar Isaac In Talks To Voice Gomez In Addams Family Animated Movie

19 hours ago

Most of the time the internet is at war, but on rare occasions everyone is able to agree on something: one of those things is the fact that Oscar Isaac would make a perfect Gomez Addams in a new adaptation of The Addams Family. Now, proving that if you wish hard enough dreams do come true, the latest word on the grapevine has it that this is really happening.

Tracking Board is reporting that the Star Wars actor is currently in talks to voice the Addams family patriarch in the upcoming animated movie, which was announced the other month. Production on the film is currently underway in Vancouver, with Sausage Party director Conrad Vernon helming the project for MGM. Corpse Bride‘s Pamela Pettler wrote the script, with revisions by Matt Lieberman.

Justice League Dp Isn’t Sure Whether The Zack Snyder Cut Exists

21 hours ago

The Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has quickly become Dceu fans’ holy grail. After the underwhelming, mismatched disappointment that lumbered into cinemas last month, critics and audiences alike tore into a movie that was obviously the product of two conflicting directorial styles (and no small amount of studio interference). We know that some version of the movie was screened to Warner Bros. execs back in the spring of 2017 and apparently, they reacted poorly to it, fearing a repeat of the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice critical evisceration.

Many are hoping that there’s enough of Snyder’s footage lying around for it to be included on the Blu-ray/DVD – with an online petition for WB to release it gaining over 160,000 signatures in just a couple of weeks. But is there even a completed Snyder cut that could be released? Justice League Dp Fabian Wagner isn’t quite sure, »

George Lucas Planned For Leia To Develop Her Force Skills In Episodes 7-9

21 hours ago

Spoilers to follow…

Though Skywalker blood is potent stuff, Princess/General Leia never displayed much desire to train herself in the ways of the Force, largely limiting herself to a loose telepathic connection with her brother Luke. In fact, it’s taken until Star Wars: The Last Jedi to see her use the Force in a more physical manner when she wills herself into an airlock on the Resistance Cruiser after First Order fighters destroy the bridge.

Now, though, in a video interview with Rolling Stone, Mark Hamill has revealed that George Lucas’ original sketches for Episodes VII-ix featured Leia actively training herself to use the Force:

“This is always something that interested me because we can communicate telepathically and I tell her in one of the movies, I guess the third one, you have that power too. So I always wondered, and I don’t read the fanfiction, »

Doctor Who Christmas Special Is “As Heartwarming As It’s A Wonderful Life”

21 hours ago

Doctor Who fans are prepared to cry like Weeping Angels this Christmas Day as “Twice Upon a Time” is set to be the Twelfth Doctor’s final bow, with Peter Capaldi handing the keys to the Tardis to Jodie Whittaker by the end of the episode. Regenerations are usually heartbreaking fare, but one of the cast members has now suggested that this one will actually be heartwarming.

David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) is set to guest star in the special as the First Doctor, with Capaldi coming face to face with his original incarnation. While speaking to ComicBook.com, Bradley praised the episode for its good-heartedness and even went as far as to compare it to one of the most beloved Christmas classics of all-time.

“It’s full of good-heartedness. I would say even if you have never seen Doctor Who before, I think you will love it. »

Marvel Studios Excited To Recast And Reboot Wolverine In The McU

21 hours ago

With Disney’s merger with 21st Century Fox now a done deal, Marvel Studios have no doubt already begun planning how best to incorporate mutants and the Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, their priority right now is figuring out the best way for flagship character Wolverine to slash his way into the ongoing saga.

Sadly for fans of Hugh Jackman, it seems as if they’re going to recast and reboot the role, shedding the two decades of character development seen in Fox’s X-Universe and going for a new interpretation. Given that James Mangold’s Logan was the perfect swansong for Jackman’s Wolverine, together with him publicly announcing he’s giving up the role, this isn’t a huge surprise.

Michael Chiklis Wants To Play Fantastic Four’s The Thing In The McU

22 hours ago

It’s official! Disney has bought Fox, meaning that the X-Men and Fantastic Four will likely be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe before long. While some fans are worried about what might happen with the current X-Universe, as it’s being called, it’s fair to say that just about everyone is pleased that Marvel’s First Family are returning home.

Fox has had three attempts in the past to nail a Fantastic Four movie, but have fluffed it every time. While there’s not much to defend in 2015’s effort, 2005’s outing and 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer did have some redeeming qualities. Sure, they were dumb and corny, but they did introduce Marvel fans to Chris Evans, who later swapped Human Torch for Captain America.

But could the McU pair Evans up with one of his old Ff cast members? That’s what Michael Chiklis is hoping for. »

Justice League Has A Better Audience Score Than Star Wars: The Last Jedi

22 hours ago

I realized pretty soon into Star Wars: The Last Jedi that it was going to be an incredibly divisive movie, at least amongst fans. At times it feels as if Rian Johnson has written his script with the intention of doing the complete opposite of what you’d expect from a Star Wars movie, or any big franchise blockbuster for that matter. It’s certainly worlds away from the cosy, nostalgia dripping fan service of The Force Awakens.

So, predictably, the internet peanut gallery is in a right tizz. The worst is one Facebook commenter saying that the next thing Johnson should draft is his suicide note. Ouch! Perhaps supporting this is the disparity between The Last Jedi‘s Tomatometer rating (93% at the time of writing) and the audience score, which sits at a lowly 57%.

This means that it’s got the exact opposite problem to the winter’s biggest bomb, »

Resident Evil Revelations Collection Review

15 December 2017 12:35 PM, PST

Like the transformative T-Virus the series is renowned for, Resident Evil is a franchise that has morphed and evolved itself into a plethora of distinct forms since its embryonic birth 21 years ago. From Resident Evil’s original survival-horror origins on the original PlayStation, to Shinji Mikami’s more action-orientated classic third-person shooter Resident Evil 4, to this year’s balls-to-the-wall first-person Vr shock-’em-up Resident Evil 7; Capcom’s venerable horror series has never been one to rest on its laurels and shy away from trying new things.

With all that said, however, this newfangled Resident Evil Revelations Collection for the Nintendo Switch is an example of Capcom playing it somewhat safe, though, I don’t mean that necessarily as a bad thing. Essentially, this is a timely re-release of a rock solid combo of old-school survival-horror and blockbuster third-person action, and I’m glad to report that it fits wonderfully on the Switch’s burgeoning library. »
