Keanu Reeves Will Return For John Wick 2, Get The Details

42 minutes ago

Surely the idea of a John Wick 2 without the presence of Keanu Reeves sounds ridiculous, but the truth of the matter is that the star of the action-packed first film wasn't part of the official announcement about the sequel three months ago. Thankfully, you can all stop dreading the idea of a Reeves-less John Wick 2, because it has been revealed that he will indeed be back. Lionsgate announced the developing project in a press release, confirming not only Keanu Reeves, but also the return of directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Unfortunately, the only thing that even comes close to resembling a plot description for John Wick 2 is the following intensely vague sentence: In the follow up to last year.s adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption thriller, legendary hit man John Wick is back. In the first John Wick, which was just released this past October, »

Apparently There's A Moon That Looks Like The Death Star

1 hour ago

Being as it.s Star Wars day and all, I can.t think of a better time to talk about this little nugget of information. Nasa shared an image of Saturn.s moon Mimas, which, you may very well notice, bears a striking resemblance to the Death Star from Star Wars: Episode IV.A New Hope. Be glad you don.t look up into the sky and see this bad boy every night. That would be terrifying Discovered in 1789 by British astronomer William Herschel, Mimas is both the smallest and closest of Saturn.s moons. 400 km in diameter, the surface of the satellite is pocked with craters, but it.s the biggest one that really makes this look like the Death Star. Its name is Herschel, which, as you probably guessed, got its name from the man who discovered the orb in the first place. Herschel is 130 km across, »

Watch What Happens When Comic Book Deadpool Takes On X-Men Origins Deadpool

2 hours ago

Comic book fans are well aware that the Wade Wilson seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was barely reminiscent of his comic book counterpart. This understandably angered many fans, and fortunately 2016.s Deadpool will remedy this by giving us the snarky and fourth wall-breaking Merc With A Mouth we know so well. In the meantime, we now have a video pitting comic book Deadpool against the Origins Deadpool video game-style, letting the former dish out some well-deserved justice against the latter. Check it out! The video, made by YouTube user ismahawk, starts with the "player" choosing which characters will fight each other, and Origins Deadpool is humorously labeled as an alternate Deadpool costume. At the beginning of the battle, comic book Deadpool is surprised that his opponent is supposed to be a version of him and subsequently states, "Ugh, somebody better get fired for this." Somehow, Wade, I doubt anyone was. »

Is This The Golden Age Of Star Wars Fandom?

2 hours ago

Star Wars Day, May the 4th, is already providing a ripe rollout of reveals for a year that quintessentially culminates on December 18 with the franchise relaunch, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Yet, more potentially potent projects are on deck than ever before with not only the rest of the Sequel Trilogy, but spinoff films, a better presence on the small screen and even a reorganized Expanded Universe of novels and comic books. Clearly, fans will see their favorite franchise set for a level of unprecedented ubiquity. Do we dare believe, then, that this is a golden age of Star Wars fandom? Well, history -- especially Star Wars history -- has taught us quite a bit about what happens when franchises expand. And this impending "age" of the Star Wars franchise still has plenty to prove before we can could call it "golden." To answer the Golden Age question, let »

Was Black Widow's Big Reveal In Avengers 2 Too Much Information?

3 hours ago

This past weekend, Marvel fans across the country flocked to the theaters to finally catch the highly-anticipated Avengers sequel. And like most Marvel movies, it did not disappoint in providing exciting action, quirky humor, and in depth looks at our favorite superheroes. But this time around, the franchise shifted the focus onto characters who aren’t often given the same attention as the leaders of the group, namely Black Widow.  We’ve known Black Widow since 2010’s Iron Man 2, when Natasha Romanoff posed as Tony Stark’s assistant before finally revealing her S.H.I.E.L.D. alliance. Scarlett Johansson has reprised the role in a number of movies, but in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the character had her biggest reveal yet. There are going to be some major spoilers ahead, as we go deeper into exploring what happened with Black Widow in Age »

What Happens In The Fifty Shades Of Grey Alternate Ending

4 hours ago

The ending to the theatrical cut of Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey was… abrupt. It was a conscious, open-ended conclusion to an emotional film, and it differed from the book on which it was based. News recently surfaced that an alternate ending to Fifty Shades of Grey would appear on the DVD, and now we know what fans can see. MTV broke down the scene, available now on iTunes, and traced the steps of both Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) after the elevator doors closed. Their reports says that additional footage shows the couple going about their normal day-to-day lives, only separate from each other. Christian struggles to maintain focus during what looks to be an important business meeting. Anastasia cries a lot, locked in a “fetal position,” according to MTV. But all hope is not lost. Ana reportedly sends »

Will Smith's Full Deadshot Costume In Suicide Squad Is Badass

20 hours ago

Looking at the first ensemble picture from Suicide Squad released earlier today, one of my main critiques was the fact that Will Smith's Deadshot wasn't wearing any kind of mask. Well, it seems that director David Ayer was thinking ahead on this one, because now he has revealed the character's full costume - mask and all. Deadshot #SuicideSquad pic.twitter.com/HEF0jFeMsO. David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) May 4, 2015 Underneath that mask is a bald-headed, beard sporting Will Smith, but this newest Tweet from David Ayer shows that the costume team went the whole nine yards in making the actor look as close to his comic book counterpart as possible. There have been some people who have fretted that the master assassin wouldn.t wear a mask in the movie at all, as Will Smith.s face is too much of an investment to completely cover. Well, it turns out those »
