Jared Padalecki Wants to Play Nightwing and New Fan Art Emerges

21 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Now that a Nightwing feature film is being talked about to no end, there’s all kinds of speculation out there as to who might play the hero.  Yesterday we found out that in a recent fan poll, people wanted Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the part.  I argued against it and still agree with my stance.  While I’m sure he’d nail the role, he just doesn’t need it for his career right now.   However, a new name has emerged today:  Jared Padalecki. When asked straight up by a fan on Twitter whether Padalecki would like to play the character, he responded

Jared Padalecki Says He’s Always Wanted To Play Nightwing, New Fan Art Emerges

25 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been an exciting week for Batfans, as Warner Bros. dropped several bombshells that sent the internet into a frenzy. As if confirming that Matt Reeves and Ben Affleck were both locked in for The Batman wasn’t enough, they also revealed that a Nightwing movie is now in development. Understandably, fans were ecstatic at the news and already, casting wish lists are popping up left, right and center.

Not only that, but several actors have begun to express interest in the role as well, and though the studio hasn’t given us any sort of indication as to who they may have their eye on, one person they might want to look at is Jared Padalecki. For a while now, fans have been calling for him to suit up as the hero and it seems that the Supernatural star is definitely interested in playing the part.

Dear Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Don’t Play Nightwing

24 February 2017 8:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Of all the actors out there, one guy who I respect more than most is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  Not only do I think he’s an incredible talent but I feel like he’s made the right role decisions in his career.  I mean we’re talking way back to when he was in A River Runs Through It as a kid.  Then his role on 30 Rock from the Sun which seems like an eternity ago.  He earned his wings on teeny bopper flicks like 10 Things I Hate about You but once we all saw him in 500 Days of Summer he

Nightwing: 5 Actors Who Could Take On The Role Of Dick Grayson

24 February 2017 3:20 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Yesterday, we learned that there will be a live action Nightwing film that will be directed by Chris McKay! So who is Chris McKay and why is this huge news? Outside of Robot Chicken, Morel Orel (funny if you remember the '80ish Sunday morning Christian show), and -- wait -- that is about it, right? So what has he done? Oh yeah. The Lego Batman Movie. He was able to combine all of the "negative & dark" elements of Batman and make him into a character that you originally love to hate, but finally are totally on-board with. Many are saying that The Lego Batman is the best Batman ever featured on the big screen, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

At this point with all the back and forth of Affleck and the possibility of The Batman movie, I do not care what I hear, until I see a trailer. »

Breaking: Live-Action Nightwing To Be Directed By Lego Batman's Chris Mckay

23 February 2017 3:13 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Dan Didio is turning over in his grave, or at least he would be if he was passed on to the eternal life where comic book gods go. If you do not know, he made a damn good effort to kill Nightwing quite awhile ago, and he was a huge part of DC Comics, and is the co-producer of DC Comics now. Well, whether he likes it or not, it sounds like we'll be seeing more Nightwing.

We have just learned that the Lego Batman director Chris McKay will be helming a live action Nightwing movie.

I think we all have a bit of a Ben Affleck, Batman, headache right now, so my endorphins are flowing with this news. But What has McKay done with Robin/Nightwing so far?

In Lego Batman, Robin (Dick Grayson, Nightwing) was voiced by Michael Cera, and while McKay's Batman & Robin may have been one »

Shailene Woodley to get lost at sea in Adrift

7 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stx Films has snapped up the rights to the sea survival tale Adrift, which will see Baltasar Kormakur (Everest) directing Shailene Woodley (Divergent) in what is being described as “Gravity on the high seas.”

The film will tell the true story of Tami Oldham, a woman who sets off on a sailing trip with her fiance when their boat is struck by the biggest hurricane in the history of the Pacific Ocean. With her fiance badly injured and their boat in ruins, Tami faces a race against the clock to save herself and the only man she’s ever loved.

“I am very exited to work with the team of Stx given the great experiences I have had with David Kosse and Adam Fogelson,” said Kormakur. “While other studios were aggressive in pursuing this story, Stx’s passion and commitment to sharing Tami’s story convinced me there was no better partner. »

A balmy mother-daughter trip to Ecuador is derailed by a kidnapping in the latest trailer for Snatched, a comedy featuring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn. The movie marks Hawn's return to the big screen after a 15-year absence.

The trailer initially suggests a peaceful movie full of wisecracks and emotional breakthroughs, as Schumer and Hawn work out their differences poolside over strong, cold drinks. Hawn smothers Schumer in sunscreen, and the two argue about the dangers of boozing with handsome strangers.

Ryan Reynolds really knows how to have a good time. On Friday, the Deadpool actor made his way to Harvard University, where he was crowned Hasty Pudding's man of the year. In addition to receiving his Pudding Pot, Ryan appeared to have a blast, participating in funny sketches that found him getting kissed by drag queens. During Ryan's acceptance speech, the father of two said his proudest moment was seeing his older daughter, James, interact with her little sister, Ines. "Just seeing my older daughter be so infatuated with our younger daughter, who's 4 months old . . . Seeing her kiss her and hug her and hold her, it kinda crushed me but would put anyone else to sleep."

He may portray Deadpool superhero Wade Wilson, but Ryan Reynolds is really just a family man.

1-Hour Actors Roundtable Talk With Jeff Bridges, Dev Patel, Mahershala Ali, Andrew Garfield & More

1 February 2017 1:21 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If it’s possible to love Jeff Bridges (“Hell or High Water”) even more, then The Hollywood Reporter’s actors roundtable makes a strong case for it. This year’s roundtable featured the veteran actor along with Dev Patel (“Lion”), Andrew Garfield (“Hacksaw Ridge”, “Silence”), Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”), Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight,” “Hidden Figures”) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“Snowden”).

Watch Andrew Garfield, Jeff Bridges, Casey Affleck & More in One-Hour Actor’s Roundtable

24 January 2017 8:13 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Writing about the Hollywood Reporter‘s recent roundtable assembly of the year’s most-celebrated cinematographers, I said something that, posting this now, I regret just a bit slightly: “What’s preferable to actors talking about how much the awards-ready role meant to them, how much it changed them as a person, and how great the person they’ve been forced to compete against really is? Everything under the sun.”

Regret when this year’s selection are an interesting bunch who, yes, can talk among each other in a way that isn’t so self-serving and nauseating. The assembly — Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Silence / Hacksaw Ridge), Dev Patel (Lion), Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Snowden) — might be the sole thing that make this worth watching, but the assembly really is the thing.

The best musical numbers in 21st century films

19 January 2017 11:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Catherine Pearson Jan 23, 2017

From School Of Rock and Enchanted through to Hail Caesar and Moana, we look at the unmissable musical numbers from modern movies...

The world has gone gaga for La La Land and it’s not difficult to see why. We love a good musical number. Sometimes there’s nothing more uplifting than a catchy tune with some fun choreography and other times music is the best, if only, way to depict a character's despair, fear or hope. Music taps into something very primal in us all and can often extract laughter and tears easier than two hours’ worth of dialogue.

Numerous classic musicals have graced the big screen since cinema began, but the 21st century alone has seen some fantastic songs in film. Some considered ‘musical films’ and others ‘films with music’, here are my top picks for this century’s best on-screen musical sequences.
