Is There a Half-Naked O-Town Feud Brewing?

6 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's a boy band battle ... or is it?!O-Town star Erik-Michael Estrada took to Twitter on Tuesday to encourage men to get checked for testicular cancer, but he also seemed to throw some shade at former bandmate Ashley Parker Angel at the same time. "Support the cause. But what ever you do don't look at my abs. Or how low under wear is. Or my junk," he captioned his shirtless selfie. In the pic, the teen heartthrob is posing for a picture in the mirror, wearing only a low-slung pair of striped boxer briefs.  Seems innocent enough, until you see the photo Ashley also recently tweeted out (above right).Angel shared a similar shirtless snapshot last week, but he took it one step further and grabbed his bulge. "#FeelingNuts for Check One Two raising awareness for testicular cancer. Don’t forget to check yours," he captioned the pic. The #FeelingNuts »

10 Ridiculous Ways Superheroes Were Resurrected

20 October 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC Comics

DC’s writer extraordinaire Geoff Johns once said that “death in superhero comics is cyclical in its nature, and that’s for a lot of reasons, whether they are story reasons, copyright reasons, or fan reasons.” Mortality in superhero comics is such a joke that “comic book death” is used a pejorative term – any major character that gets killed off, everyone knows, which eventually come back. Nobody stays dead. Sometimes that frees people up to do awesome, inventive stories; other times, it robs what could be an emotional scene of any gravitas because, well, they’ll be resurrected in about six months, right?

The recent Death Of Wolverine came down somewhere between the two. Obviously nobody believes that Marvel’s biggest cash cow is going to remain six feet under for very long (especially when Hugh Jackman’s set to play him in yet another blockbuster X-Men film »

Tom Hardy Wanted for Villain Role in X-men: Apocalypse

20 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Suicide Squad isn't the only comic book movie that Tom Hardy is up for. According to The Wrap, the British actor is also up for the role of the villain Apocalypse in director Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse!

At one point Hardy was rumored to be up for the role of Doctor Strange, but it seems like that ship has sailed, and he's not on it. One thing for sure is, it looks like he's going to be attached to another comic book project in the near future. This wouldn't be the first time either, as he also played Bane in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

I think Hardy would be great in both Suicide Squad and X-Men: Apocalypse. But if I had to choose to see him in one of those it would have to be as Apocalypse, because he would freakin' be awesome in that role! »

Tom Hardy wanted for X-Men: Apocalypse villain En Sabah Nur

20 October 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy is reportedly being sought to play the villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Dark Knight Rises star is wanted by director Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox to play En Sabah Nur, the world's first mutant who was born in Egypt around 3,000 BC.

The character, created by Louise and Walter Simonson, first appeared in X-Factor #6 and was glimpsed in the post-credits sequence for X-Men: Days of Future Past (where he was played by Brendan Pedder).

According to The Wrap, Hardy is also in the running for Warner Bros' Suicide Squad film and Marvel's Doctor Strange but won't be able to appear in all three.

X-Men: Apocalypse will see Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Evan Peters and Nicholas Hoult return for the sequel, which is due for release in May 2016.

Producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed that Apocalypse will be the final instalment of the X-Men prequel trilogy.

Quicksilver Concept Art For X-men: Days Of Future Past

19 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When director Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects") announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past would include 'Quicksilver' and that Evan Peters ("Kick-Ass") would play the role many people, such as myself, were skeptical. The timing of the announcement seemed especially odd since we already knew Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron had decided to use the speedy-mutant as well. But all doubt surrounding Singer's intentions were tossed out the window when audiences were blown away by the film's Pentagon scene. 'Quicksilver' stole the show as he zipped along the walls of the Pentagon's kitchen with a gleeful smile as he protected his new allies: Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles Xavier (James McAvoy). Below, are designs for the character's customized stereo belt. Concept Art by Henry Fong Ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-Men: Days »

Tom Hardy Wanted for 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Villain

18 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With the number of superhero movies in the pipeline, speculation over who will play what hero and what villain won't be ending any time soon and things are no different today as The Wrap reports Tom Hardy is being sought to play "En Sabah Nur," which means "The First One" and is also the name for the titular villain in X-Men: Apocalypse, a character first introduced in 1986's "X-Factor" comics. I went into greater detail as to who this Apocalypse guy is right here as he's the blue fella you saw during the X-Men: Days of Future Past end credit sequence. To put it simply, he's the world's first mutant. Bryan Singer will return to direct X-Men: Apocalypse for a May 27, 2016 release with Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Jackman all expected to return. As for Hardy, he's also been listed as one of the actors »

Tom Hardy wanted for title role in X-Men: Apocalypse

18 October 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’s been linked to Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange and Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad in recent days, and now The Wrap is reporting that 20th Century Fox is also courting Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) for one of its own superhero projects, with the site claiming that the British actor is wanted for the role of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse, in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

Last week, director Bryan Singer revealed that casting is underway on the follow-up to X-Men: Days of Future Past, so you would expect the primary focus to be on finding an actor to portray the ancient mutant. However, if rumours are true, Hardy may have to make a decision between Apocalypse and Suicide Squad, given that they’re both due for release in 2016 (as is Doctor Strange, but he’s one of several thousand names linked to that particular role).

Hot Toys Wolverine Action Figure from X-men: Days Of Future Past

17 October 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Hot Toys has revealed their 1/6 scale collectible action figure of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine from X-Men: Days of Future Past. As you would expect from Hot Toys, the detail is immaculate, especially in the costume. There's actually one thing I don't like about it, though… the face. When you see it in these action poses it doesn't really work. The facial expression needs to be fiercer, with the look of berserker rage. That would have taken this figure to a whole new level. Here's the description:

The X-Men has returned onto the big screen earlier this year with the critically-acclaimed and highly-popular X-Men: Days of Future Past! With the mutant race being exterminated by powerful Sentinels in the future, Wolverine was sent back to the past in order to stop the war before it began and save his kind from the terrible fate.

Minecraft The Movie Will be Directed by Shawn Levy

16 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Fan poster by DeviantArt user SupMissTasty

Earlier this year it was reported that Warner Bros. would be developing a big screen adaptation of the addictive video game Minecraft. Deadline now reports that the studio has hired Night at the Museum franchise director Shawn Levy to direct the feature. 

In the game, players create their own avatar and are dropped into a blank world filled with nocturnal monsters. Players then use cubes to create, build, and destroy structures and other forms across multiple game modes and various players. 

The movie will be a live-action adaptation, which seems weird because it would fit a lot better in a CG animated universe. Creating it in live-action would take away the the look of the brand, which the players have become accustomed to. Who knows though, maybe Levy has a way to make it all work. 

This seems like a movie that Levy would »

Oscars News: What are the 5 'burning questions' for Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris?

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Kyle Buchanan asks five "burning questions" about the choice of Neil Patrick Harris as the next host of the Academy Awards. He feels like it was an inevitable selection following his previous efforts on the Tonys and Emmys. He wonders if this is a good sign for "Gone Girl" since Harris is a co-star in that film. Could Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler now host the Oscars someday? Does the Academy now "value stability" above all else? Did Seth MacFarlane recommend Harris for this gig? Might he sing with previous host Hugh Jackman like they did on the Tonys? Vulture -Break- Join the lively film and TV discussions going on right now in the Gold Derby message boards Oliver Gettell says that six of the past eight Brad Pitt movies have been dark and gritty.

13 times Neil Patrick Harris proved he is the ultimate Oscars host

16 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After hosting the Emmys twice, the Tonys four times, the Spike Video Game Awards, Saturday Night Live and even the Disney Parks Christmas Parade, Neil Patrick Harris has landed the 2015 Oscars gig.

To mark the thespian's appointment, here are a collection of career highlights which show why Nph is the perfect Academy Awards host.

1. Showstopping opening numbers

A Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show wouldn't be complete without several large scale musical numbers, but the opening piece is the biggest spectacle. When Nph is hosting a show, his performances are often the most memorable moments the next day.

He finds a perfect blend of mickey-taking and adoration about the subjects he is singing about, and his timing is impeccable. If the Academy wants someone who is safe, yet cheeky, Nph is perfect.

2. Playing the ultimate diva

If you want an example of flamboyant stage presence, just watch him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, »
