Mark Hamill Wants In On Potential Justice League Animated Series Reunion

With the recent Dceu movie turning out to be not as good as it could have been, there’s still no beating the Justice League animated series as the finest screen adaptation of DC’s super-team to date. Airing from 2001 to 2006 (if you count the revamped Justice League Unlimited as the same show), the series is still remembered fondly – hence the interest in getting the cast back together for a reunion.

As part of the ongoing social media campaign to get Warner Bros. Animation to put something together, actress Susan Eisenberg – who played Wonder Woman – shared a Tweet to whip up some support from fans. In response, one individual questioned whether Mark Hamill could be involved as well, given that he played the Joker in several episodes of the show, which was a spinoff of the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series.

Can @HamillHimself come too?

Funko Has Finally Revealed Their Long-Awaited Smallville Pop! Figures

I'm shocked that it has taken so long for Funko to create a line of vinyl Pop! figures, but the first wave of them are finally here and there's no doubt that fans are going to want to get their hands on these. So far, the set includes Tom Welling's Clark Kent, Erica Durance’s Lois Lane, Michael Rosenbaum's Lex Luthor, and Justin Hartley's Green Arrow.

I have no doubt that more characters will follow. There's so many of them in this show including Lana Lang, Chloe Sullivan, Lionel Luthor, the Kents, and all of the villains Clark faced off with over the years.

There are two versions of Clark Kent in the set. The first one is based on the very beginning of the series and the second figure represent Clark at the very end when he flashed that iconic emblem. Seeing these makes me want

Review: Static Shock the Complete Third Season

  • Comicmix
Milestone Media’s best-known character, Static, is back in the third volume of his animated adventures after the release of the first two seasons last year. Static Shock was somewhat revolutionary back in the day, featuring an African-American teen super-hero who juggled classes, girls, villains, and parents, not all that dissimilar to a certain wall-crawler. The comic was long gone, but he left a mark.

Virgil Hawkins (Phil Lamarr) arrived for the Static Shock the Complete Third Season sporting a brand new costume and during the season, his Bff Richie (Jason Marsden) gained powers, taking on the name Gear. Throughout the thirteen episodes comprising the series, which aired in the Kids’ WB, he left the confines of Dakota and journeyed to Africa and even partnered with Superman after fighting alongside the Justice League.

It helped that there were strong scripts from Milestone co-founder Dwayne McDuffie, backed by Paul Dini, Len Uhley,

William Fichtner and Michael Rosenbaum’s Thriller “The Neighbor” Looks Solid

William Fichtner and Michael Rosenbaum seem to make a great pair in the thriller The Neighborhood. Pitting a younger man and an older man in a movie such as this is something that’s been done before but still seems like a solid bet for a great movie. It’s not so much action-packed, at least it doesn’t look like it, as it is filled with drama and the lingering uncertainty of how to react in such a situation. A lot of older men, middle-aged to senior citizen, tend to look at young couples and get a bit wistful no matter if

Trailer For William Fichtner and Michael Rosenbaum's Thriller The Neighbor

Hey, look! Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum actually co-stars in a new movie coming out with William Fichtner (Elysium, 12 Strong) called The Neighbor. This actually looks like a decent thriller that would be worth checking out... if this trailer didn't basically tell us the whole damn story! 

The story follows a "middle-aged man (Fichtner) in a stagnant marriage becomes voyeuristically obsessed with an attractive young woman (Jessica McNamee) when she and her seemingly abusive husband (Rosenbaum) move in next door."

If you're a fan of either of these actors, maybe you'll want to check this out. Who knows, maybe there's some kind of twist in the story that isn't in this trailer. The Neighbor was directed by Aaron Harvey (Catch .44) and it's set to be released in theaters and on VOD on January 26th, 2018.

William Fichtner in Official Trailer for Domestic Thriller 'The Neighbor'

"What were you doing in my house?" "I heard a scream." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the official trailer for a low-key thriller titled The Neighbor, from director Aaron Harvey. The indie drama stars the very talented character actor William Fichtner (last seen in 12 Strong, Elysium, The Lone Ranger, Drive Angry, The Dark Knight) as a reserved man stuck in a stagnant marriage whose life is upended when an attractive young woman and her husband move in to the home next door to them. The cast includes Jessica McNamee, Jean Louisa Kelly, Michael Rosenbaum, Colin Woodell, and Erich Anderson. I can't tell if there's a big twist in this, but it seems like a solidly engaging friendly-neighbor thriller. Check it out.

Superman Prequel Series Metropolis Coming To DC Digital Service

The Superman prequels just keep on coming.

For ten years, The CW documented Clark Kent’s teenage life in Smallville and this year, Syfy will follow that up by diving into his home planet’s history in Krypton. Now, we’re hearing that DC’s upcoming digital streaming service is also working on a Superman prequel of its own.

Titled Metropolis, the series will sidestep the Man of Steel and instead focus on his future love interest Lois Lane as she and a surprise partner (Lex Luthor) set about investigating the bizarre occurrences happening across the city. Here’s how Variety, who broke the news, describes it:

Metropolis – is set in the famous comic book city before the arrival of Superman. It will follow Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.”

Apparently, DC is fast-tracking the show,

Superman Prequel Series ‘Metropolis’ Lands 13 Episode Order at DC Digital Service

A live-action Superman prequel has been ordered straight-to-series at DC’s upcoming digital streaming service, Variety has learned.

From Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment, the series–titled “Metropolis”– is set in the famous comic book city before the arrival of Superman.

It has received an order for a 13 episode first season and will go into production later this year for a debut on the service in 2019.

The project was previously under consideration at Fox, where it would have served as a companion to “Gotham,” the drama about Gotham City before the arrival of Batman.

Superman has a long history on television. Most recently, Tyler Hoechlin portrayed the Man of Steel in the CW series “Supergirl.” Prior to that, the last time the iconic superhero appeared in a series was “Smallville.” In the

Countdown to Justice League – Jla: Tower of Babel

Ricky Church continues his countdown to Justice League with Jla: Tower of Babel…

The Justice League is one of the largest inspirations of hope in the DC Universe. Complete with heroes such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern, they’re an unstoppable force of good that has saved the world dozens of times over. However, this also makes them the most powerful force on Earth. What would happen if they ever turned rogue?

Various Justice League tales have tackled this question – such as Justice League Unlimited‘s Cadmus Arc or Injustice: Gods Among Us – but Jla: Tower of Babel, written by Mark Waid, is a different story altogether. Ra’s al Ghul launches an attack against the League by using their own weaknesses against them, but how did he know to attack them so specifically? Because he managed to steal Batman’s private plans to take each League

Universes Collide In This Epic Avengers V. Justice League Fan Film

With the news that Disney’s thinking of buying 20th Century Fox, the X-Men universe crossing over with the Marvel Cinematic Universe might actually be a possibility at some point in the future. But, while that’s amazing enough in and of itself, what about that other superhero crossover that fans would love to see happen? We’re talking, of course, about an almighty alliance between Marvel’s Avengers and DC’s Justice League.

Unfortunately, that’s probably never going to materialize anywhere except in fan films, so thankfully, we’ve got YouTubers like Alex Luthor, who’s now posted an epic supercut which splices together clips from various Marvel and DC productions to imagine what would happen if the two comic book behemoths ever met. This isn’t just a trailer-length piece, either, but rather a whole 12-minute long fan film, and it’s definitely worth a watch

James Gunn Teases Old-School Guardians Of The Galaxy In Vol. 3

Uniquely, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 included not one or two, but a whole five post-credits scenes. While half of them were inconsequential, comedic sequences, a couple teased important developments to come in Vol. 3.

As well as a promise that Adam Warlock would soon enter the McU, we also got a heavy hint that Sylvester Stallone’s Stakar and his team of Ravager captains would be returning for a major role next time around. Marvel comics fans will know that these characters are based on the original 1969 line-up of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The other day, GotG director James Gunn took to Facebook to commemorate the forty-eighth anniversary of the creation of the Guardians by sharing an image of the team’s original incarnation, featuring Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex and Yondu. As Gunn points, three out of the four have now appeared in the McU.

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord
Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a risky proposition for Marvel Studios, even after the runaway success of their cinematic universe building films like Iron Man and The Avengers. These characters hang around in outer space! There are aliens on the team! There's a talking raccoon! So it was nothing short of incredible when Guardians of the Galaxy earned nearly $800 million and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. A big part of James Gunn's action-comedy masterpiece depends upon the charisma of Chris Pratt, who leads the team as Peter Quill, the film's relatable half-earthling who rocks badass tunes in his headphones while kicking ass as Star-Lord. But it almost didn't happen that way. As there were plenty of other big names vying for the coveted role.

It may seem crazy to think about now, but at the time, Pratt was mostly known as lovable doofus and Mouse Rat frontman Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

Tobe Hooper Remembered: The Horror World Pays Tribute to a Trailblazer

Tobe Hooper Remembered: The Horror World Pays Tribute to a Trailblazer
Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist director Tobe Hooper passed away yesterday at the age of 74 and now members of the Hollywood and horror community are paying tribute to the iconic director. Those paying tribute to Hooper have included Baby Driver and Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright and Sleepwalkers director, Mick Garris, who collaborated with Hooper on Showtime's Masters of Horror show as well as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. 2017 has been a sad year for horror fans with the passing of Hooper and another horror director George A. Romero.

Hooper was born in Austin, Texas, the son of Lois Belle and Norman William Ray Hooper, who owned a theater in San Angelo. He first became interested in filmmaking when he used his father's 8 mm camera at age 9. Hooper eventually took Radio-Television-Film classes at the University of Texas at Austin and studied drama in Dallas under Baruch Lumet

Tobe Hooper, Director Of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Dies at 74

Tobe Hooper, the legendary filmmaker of such horror classics as The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Poltergeist, has sadly passed away at the age of 74.

Hooper passed away on Saturday 26th August in Sherman Oaks, California, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner, though the circumstances of his death were not known.

Hooper directed the classic ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ back in 1974 for less than $300,000. It went to gross over $30 million, despite being banned in many global territories for many years, including the UK. He went on to direct the Steven Spielberg-produced Poltergeist in 1982. Both films had remakes made in the past few years.

Hooper also had the likes of Salem’s Lot, The Mangler, and Night Terrors on his resume throughout his multi-decade career.

Tributes from the film world have started to pour in via social media.

Oh no. R.I.P. Tobe Hooper. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 could have had a David Bowie cameo

Mike Cecchini Aug 23, 2017

David Bowie would have played one of the Ravagers in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2.

Before the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, word got out that writer/director James Gunn had been hoping to find room for David Bowie in the film before the legendary artist left this plane of existence in January 2016. Bowie, of course, would have been a perfect fit for this universe, as his Ziggy Stardust character in the 1970s already looked and sounded like he belonged in the cosmic McU. Meanwhile, the utterly flawless Moonage Daydream made it to the soundtrack of the first film, while Suffragette City was used in marketing for the sequel.

In honour of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 arriving on Blu-ray, Gunn took to Facebook Live to answer a whole mess of fan questions, and of course, the mystery of David Bowie's role came up.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

  • Comicmix
It’s been such a long, dreary summer at the movies that it’s hard to believe the season started with such promise in early May with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which was a well-deserved box office smash.

A good sequel preserves the best of the original but expands the mythos, explores something new and enhances the experience. A bad sequel merely repeats the original’s beats and goes through the motions. Thankfully, Marvel Studios understands the difference and works to make each installment in a franchise something fresh.

In the case of James Gunn, he saw early on how special and different Guardians of the Galaxy was going to be and knew how to go further with the sequel, reportedly beginning writing it before the first opened. Gunn brought the disparate members — Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (David Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper,

James Gunn On The Possilbility Of A Ravagers Movie

What’s next for James Gunn and the Guardians of the Galaxy? It is possible that the franchise could be heading back to its original roots, The Ravagers. They were the Guardians of the Galaxy back before Peter Quill and his crew took over. Fans actually got to see them in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The Ravagers shown in the film were Stakar Ogord, Aleta Ogord (who eventually meld together into the being known as Starhawk), Martinex, Charlie 27, and Mainframe, who MIley Cyrus lent her voice to. In speaking with Collider, James Gunn spoke of a potential, for lack of a better word, spinoff of the franchise.

James Gunn Says That There's Always Discussions in Regards to a Ravagers Film

One of the cool surprises in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was the introduction of the original Guardians team. That team consisted of Starhawk (Sylvester Stallone), Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Martinex (Michael Rosenbaum), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Mainframe (Miley Cyrus), and Krugarr.

There was a lot of talk among fans about seeing a spinoff film with these characters. Even Gunn has teased that he wanted to bring Stallone back for another adventure. If that happens, I imagine the rest of the team will come along for the ride. It was just such a cool set up for these characters and it'd be a shame if Marvel never expended on them.

During an interview with Collider, Gunn teased that there are some kind of plans being discussed for these characters. He tells them that “There’s always discussion with Ravagers" and then clarified "it would be The Ravagers." He went on
