Hulk’s Living A Celebrity Lifestyle In Thor: Ragnarok

1 hour ago

Much digital ink has been spilled over Thor: Ragnarok and its ties to Planet Hulk.

How has Greg Pak’s beloved comic influenced the story, if at all? Does Ragnarok feature any particular character plucked from the arc? And will Bruce Banner’s time on Sakaar lay the foundations for a Hulk solo movie? Granted, it appears the answer to that question is a straight up ‘no’, but those hoping to see a whole new side of the Jade Giant are in luck.

Due to light up theaters on November 3rd, Taika Waititi’s spacefaring romp was recently named as the most-anticipated movie of the fall season – ahead of Justice League, no less – and at least according to Mark Ruffalo, it’ll present the Hulk to us like we’ve never seen him before.

Speaking to Total Film ahead of the threequel’s release, the actor noted that his character »

Fans Want Wonder Woman To Be Bisexual In The Sequel

1 hour ago

It’s no secret that Wonder Woman has been crowned as a box office juggernaut since its debut back in June, with $819 million worldwide and counting, according to the latest estimation by Box Office Mojo. That’s a staggering, eye-watering sum by anyone’s standards, and the Diana Prince origin story broke a number of high-profile records (see: highest-grossing film directed by a woman) on its journey to stardom.

So, all eyes are now turning to Wonder Woman 2 as fans wait with bated breath to see how the studio will follow up on what was, by all accounts, an absolute home run. It’s still too early for plot details and the like, of course, but recent rumors have told us that Warner Bros. has earmarked the Cold War for Diana’s next solo adventure.

Should that prove to be true, it’d be a stark departure from the »

The Walking Dead Season 8 Premiere May Shed Light On Old Man Rick Scene

3 hours ago

Fans went wild after The Walking Dead‘s season 8 trailer, first released at Comic-Con, dropped an unexpected twist in its final moments. Dubbed the “Old Man Rick” scene, the preview ended with a glimpse at a greying, bearded, bedridden Rick, seemingly a flash-forward to some point in the character’s future.

Of course, it sparked many concerns that The Walking Dead would lean on the ol’ “it was all just a dream” cliché to put a bow on the Rick Grimes saga. But don’t panic; it appears that’s not the case, as showrunner Scott Gimple recently went on record to shoot down those worries. And while we’ll likely have to wait until the new season really gets underway to find out just what’s going on with that scene, it does sound like at least some light will be shed on it during the premiere.

Batman Takes On Pennywise In Epic New Mashup Trailer

3 hours ago

Not since Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance as the Joker has a cinematic trickster generated so much conversation, and it all stems from Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

Stephen King’s flesh-munching abomination has been haunting theaters for several weeks now, pulling in a record amount of box office receipts in the process. It is currently at $417 million (worldwide) and counting, and all signs point to Andy Muschietti’s R-rated scarefest being remembered as one of 2017’s bona fide success stories.

But now that the terrifying clown is out in the open, spawning countless nightmares in the process, it’s time for all those mashup trailers to start rolling in. Just yesterday, we saw one that brought together Pennywise and the Joker in suitably epic fashion and now, it seems that the demonic entity has turned his attention towards another DC Comics character: Batman.

Yes, the Dark Knight and Pennywise go »

Bohemian Rhapsody Casts Freddie Mercury’s Boyfriend

3 hours ago

We’ll be the first to admit that we weren’t sure what to make of the casting of Mr. Robot star Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. But after seeing the actor in action thanks to a recent set video (seen above), we can safely say that 20th Century Fox picked the right man for the job.

While we don’t know too much about the film just yet, it will reportedly spotlight “a 15-year period, starting in 1970 when Mercury met his bandmates, up through their legendary Live Aid performance in 1985.” Now, with production well underway, the rest of the cast is starting to assemble and today, Deadline brings word that a key role has been filled. That’d be the part of Jim Hutton, Freddie’s boyfriend.

Bringing him to life will be Aaron McCusker, who’s perhaps best known for his work on Showtime’s Shameless. »

Ron Howard Teases Dangerous And Desperate Times In Han Solo Prequel

4 hours ago

Back in June, production on Disney and Lucasfilm’s Han Solo spinoff ground to a halt after the abrupt firing of erstwhile directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

It’s an announcement that not only sent shockwaves through the Star Wars community, but also the industry itself, and the entire ordeal had echoes of those scathing rumors that plagued Rogue One: A Star Wars Story mid-way through filming. Bringing an end to the drama almost as quickly as it began, Disney then appointed the Oscar-winning Ron Howard in place of Lord and Miller and ever since, he’s been posting regular updates via his social media feeds.

From pics teasing the Kessel Run to a few shots of some of the new droids we’ll be meeting, the director has been keeping us right up to date and today, he’s delivered more. Taking to both Instagram and Twitter, »

The Walking Dead Season 8 Will Have Some Serious Action

17 hours ago

Though it remains consistently great television, there’s no denying that The Walking Dead does have a tendency to fall into a very familiar pattern of going long stretches without anything particularly eventful happening. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with character-focused drama (that is the basis of the show, after all), but when fans have been promised “all-out war” and all they’re given is a short (though admittedly, exciting) skirmish in the season 7 finale, there were always going to be disappointments.

Thankfully, things will be changing drastically this year, as Rick Grimes and co. will seemingly be put through the wringer come October, after series showrunner Scott Gimple previously warned fans that The Walking Dead‘s eighth season is poised to zip along at a brisk clip, beginning with the “explosive” premiere on October 22nd – for the record, that same episode will also go down as the show’s 100th instalment. »

Epic Dceu Art Imagines The Man Of Steel Fighting Black Adam

18 hours ago

It’s been years since Dwayne Johnson was announced to have signed up to play anti-hero Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe, and yet we’ve still to see the megastar turn up in the franchise. We’re not even sure when he’ll make his debut. Originally, the actor was set to play the villainous role in Shazam, but it’s since been revealed that this won’t be the case. Instead, a Black Adam solo film is in the works, though it doesn’t seem like that’s being hurried into production.

Now, one fan’s decided that we’ve done enough waiting and has imagined – via some awesome art – what it would look like if Johnson’s Black Adam battled Henry Cavill’s Superman. Previously, rumours stated that Adam would show up in Man of Steel 2, the sequel to the 2013 movie that kicked off the Dceu and today, »

Leaked Gambit Story Details Reveal X-Men Connection

19 hours ago

Too often we hear of film projects falling apart when a director/star walks away or, in the more common scenario, a studio pulls the plug altogether. From Fantastic Four 2 to Sony’s fabled Sinister Six crossover, you don’t have to search too far to locate a big-name project that failed to get off the ground. Thankfully, Gambit isn’t one of them.

Yes, the X-Men spinoff has encountered one setback after another since it was first announced, but despite all those frustrating false starts, Channing Tatum remains attached to headline as the ice-cool Remy LeBeau. That’s the real name of the titular hero, a card-playing Cajun who hails from New Orleans. Originally portrayed by Taylor Kitsch in the widely derided X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the torch has since been passed over to Tatum, whose long-time affinity for the character stretches all the way back to childhood.

Rift Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

20 hours ago

Erlingur Thoroddsen‘s Rift is an icy “cabin in the hills” thriller worth every scenic gawk; Iceland’s genuine production value featured to a remarkable degree (looming mountain regions to jagged lava fields). Landscapes like a Bob Ross painting and tension like a Justin Benson/Aaron Moorhead production might squeeze. It’s such prime location setting, which Thoroddsen skillfully uses to subtlety wall-in characters and inspire tone-snapping hope. This sets the stage for personal rumination in the most idyllic of lands, where evil may present itself as a wolf of our own conjuring – living, not even hiding, in plain sight.

Thoroddsen boils a complicated relationship between two men – Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson) and Gunnar (Björn Stefánsson) – down to psychological fears. Uncertainty. Life. It’s their status as ex-lovers that unites the two men once again, after Einar leaves Gunnar a vague – and cryptic – voicemail. Gunnar, unable to decipher the message’s intent, »

Justice League Predicted To Have Second-Best Dceu Box Office Opening

20 hours ago

The box office projections for Justice League are here and they predict that the much anticipated team-up extravaganza is going to earn the second biggest opening weekend of any DC Extended Universe movie after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Box Office Pro is projecting that the flick will make an impressive $150 million in domestic gross over its first three days in cinemas. If this is similar to how things actually play out come November, it’ll place the movie just behind BvS, which pulled in $166 million over that same period. For comparison with the rest of the Dceu, Suicide Squad earned $133 million, Man of Steel managed $116 million and finally, Wonder Woman opened to $103 million.

Overall, these predictions peg Justice League for a total domestic gross of $330 million, which would put it level with BvS and a little above Suicide Squad‘s $325 million and Man of Steel‘s $291 million. Wonder »

First Details Of This Year’s Arrowverse Crossover Revealed

21 hours ago

This year’s crossover between the four shows that make up the Arrowverse – that’s Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow – has finally been confirmed. And the announcement has been made via a mock-up comic book cover.

TV Line have revealed that the umbrella title for the crossover will be “Crisis on Earth-x” and it’ll kick off when the heroes of the Arrowverse come together to celebrate the wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West – which we recently found out would happen this year.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“With all of the heroes in town to celebrate Barry and Iris’s wedding, villains from Earth-x crash the festivities with a deadly agenda.”

To mark the event, celebrated comic book artist Phil Jimenez – who you might know from his work on Wonder Woman – has created a classic-style comic book cover based on the crossover concept. It sees the likes of Green Arrow, »

Another Cameo Has Been Cut From Justice League

21 hours ago

The recent test screening of Justice League attended by a few lucky fans has given us another clue about what to expect from the film. Or, as it so happens, what’s no longer part of it.

Following on from their report that Jesse Eisenberg’s cameo as Lex Luthor has been excised from Joss Whedon’s cut of Justice League, BatmanNews.com is claiming that sources have informed them that another character will be absent from the film as well. Kiersey Clemons was set to make her debut as Barry Allen’s love interest Iris West in Justice League, but now that doesn’t seem to be the case.

It was already looking likely that Clemons would have at least a reduced role in the film, as the actress previously stated that she wasn’t involved with the extensive reshoots that have taken place over the past few months. »

Warwick Davis’ Character In Han Solo Movie Might Have Been Revealed

22 September 2017 12:48 PM, PDT

Warwick Davis might not be a familiar face in the Star Wars franchise, but he is one of the saga’s most prolific actors. As a child, he appeared in Return of the Jedi as the Ewok Wicket and has featured in some masked role in various outings since. This year, he’s on double duty as both the voice of assassin Rukh in Star Wars Rebels and an as-yet-unrevealed role in The Last Jedi. Not only that, but thanks to a new report, we now might know who he’ll be playing in next year’s Han Solo prequel.

According to Making Star Wars, Davis will be suiting up as a revamped version of a classic robot. Specifically, the Gnk power droid – which fans may recall previously appeared as just “a box with legs,” as Msw puts it. Davis’ character will be called Fight Droid 2, who’s “decked out »

The 10 Most Controversial TV Finales Ever

22 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT

It’s often said not to judge a TV show by its pilot episode, as those are notoriously difficult to get right. However, at the other end of the process, a finale is probably even harder to write. By that point, you have a whole series that’s depending on you not screwing things up. It’s not surprising, then, that so many popular shows have delivered hugely controversial conclusions over the years.

Let’s look at a recent example. Twin Peaks returned after a quarter of a century back in the spring and delivered a fittingly surreal follow-up to the 1990s cult favourite. Its finale, which could be the end of this show, naturally left viewers at a loss of what to make of it all. Still, most fans agreed that the crazy conclusion was the best way for the series to bow out.

Not all TV finales are so lucky, »

The Justice League Cast Recall When They Were Tapped For Iconic Roles In New Promo

22 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT

Throughout our lifetime, there are certain significant experiences that we’re able to remember vividly. Perhaps they could be first dates, concerts, the loss of a loved one or even what we were doing when major historical events occurred. We’d prefer you not include waiting in line all night to purchase the latest smart phone, but we’ll let it slide.

Well, if you’re fortunate enough to count yourself as being amongst a handful of actors to star in the live action debut of the Justice League, odds are that you’re going to take that with you for the rest of your life. In fact, quite recently, this exclusive club recounted what they were doing when Zack Snyder tapped them for each iconic role when pressed by Chris Hardwick during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gotham Ep Says Harley Quinn Won’t Show Up After All

22 September 2017 11:27 AM, PDT

Undeniably, Gotham has treated us to no shortage of classic Batman villains over the course of its four seasons, with fresh interpretations of the Penguin, Riddler, Scarecrow and Mr. Freeze already having been offered up. In fact, some would argue that the series has played host to the best live action iterations of those very characters.

Obviously, one fan favorite that we’ve all expected to show up at some point is that of Harley Quinn, especially since a proto-Joker, Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan), has stolen the show on more than one occasion. Truth be told, we, like many of you, were expecting Erin Richards’ Barbara Kean to transition to becoming this series’ version of the Clown Princess of Crime, but it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Now, executive producer John Stephens has told Cbr that such a thing isn’t in the cards, despite a mountain of evidence »

Heath Will Return To The Walking Dead

22 September 2017 11:18 AM, PDT

Cast your minds back to The Walking Dead season 7, specifically episode six. While on the road, Tara and Heath were attacked by a horde of zombies in their camper. Though Tara escaped, she eventually made her way back to find evidence that Heath was able to get away, though he was nowhere to be found. And that, readers, is the last time we saw the character.

Naturally, fans have been wanting to know what happened to him ever since, so it’s a relief to know, then, that Heath has been promised to return to The Walking Dead at some point in the future. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple said:

“We definitely have not seen the last of Heath, period. I will say that. I don’t mean to disappoint the Heathies. He will be on the show. He will be within The Walking Dead again.”

Gimple did, »

Synopses For Legends Of Tomorrow And Arrow Season Premieres Arrive

22 September 2017 10:58 AM, PDT

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow.

First, let’s talk about Legends of Tomorrow because it’ll be the first of these two shows to air. In “Aruba-Con,” we’ll see the Waverider crew bereft of the ship they call home and, apparently, carrying on with life in this broken timeline. Seriously, with dinosaurs running amok in the streets and Julius Caesar being a beach bully, I’m not sure if I’d be able to even sleep, so how do they manage? »

7 Superhero Movies With Terrific Plot Twists

22 September 2017 10:32 AM, PDT

Plot twists have been a staple of film since the silent days of cinema. They’re a method of jump-starting a narrative that might have grown too predictable, or simply providing a new take on things that changes the audience’s perspective.

It should come as no surprise, then, that these tropes have been embraced by the sub-genre known to many as comic book movies. These are among some of the biggest blockbusters ever produced, and making each and every one of them memorable is a difficult task, even for talented filmmakers.

As we pointed out in another list, sometimes the attempts at a good twist fail, resulting in the plot crashing and burning. But there are many other writers who are more than capable of creating intricate stories, and these have gone on to stick in our heads.

So, without further delay, let’s look at seven terrific plot »
