Green Lantern Corps: You’ll Never Guess Who’s On The Rumored Shortlist To Play Hal Jordan

9 hours ago

Usually, when a movie ends up being a dumpster fire of a disaster, studios, actors, and all relevant talent find a way to distance themselves from it. And no one can really blame them. It’s because of the mammoth flop that was 2011’s Green Lantern that the next Green Lantern film (Green Lantern Corps) was pushed to way back of the DC Extended Universe slate: they wanted to give audiences time for the bad taste to wear off. No one’s going to give the movie a chance, if they associate it with the original film, right? 

Well, that makes this next rumor all the more surprising. According to TheWrap, former Green Lantern star and current Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is on the list of potential candidates to play Hal Jordan in the eventual Green Lantern Corps film.

Here’s who else is on the list!

Here’s Who’s Singing In That Flash & Supergirl Musical Crossover Episode

10 hours ago

We still can’t believe this is happening. In a world with increasing stakes in established shared universes, and world-ending drama, it’s kind of nice to know the superhero genre is still used to pull stupid, ridiculous things like a musical crossover special.

In case you haven’t heard, in a couple months, The Flash and Supergirl will have a semi-two-part crossover special, wherein the characters will sing, Glee-style. I say “semi” because only the tail end of the March 20th episode of Supergirl will include the crossover aspects, and the rest of it will occur in the next episode of The Flash the following day — not unlike how the four-part Invasion special kicked off late last year.

We know, the Music Meister will be the villain of this episode ( a character that was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris and debuted in Batman: The Brave and the Bold »

Logan: Impressions Of The Wolverine Flick’s First 40 Minutes Are In

11 hours ago

If that amazingly dreary, independent film-flavored first trailer wasn’t enough, yesterday saw the release of yet another strong trailer for Logan, the latest in the series of Wolverine-focused X-Men spinoffs. Logan also looks to be Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the popular X-Men character, and as such, he’d really need to go out on a high note. So this couldn’t just be a standard superhero movie. After several films with Wolverine at the center, we needed something a lot more.

In a world where superhero films permeate the film industry on every level, that first trailer really set the film apart. Rather than have crazy, world-ending stakes, this film dared to be personal. Now that that element seemed to be driven home by the more action-oriented second trailer, only one question remains: can the film live up to the hype set by the trailers?

So how does it hold up? »

CW’s Arrow-verse Overlord Greg Berlanti Sells Pilot About Magician Helping FBI Solve Crimes

12 hours ago

You can’t say Greg Berlanti isn’t one busy dude. In addition to shepherding the DC Comics series Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, he also recently sold another comic book show, Black Lightning, to the folks over at Fox. But the guy didn’t stop there.

Now, Variety is reporting that Berlanti Production has sold a pilot called Deception to ABC.

According to the outlet, the pilot, written and executive produced by Chris Fedak follows a former superstar magician named Cameron Black, whose career is ruined by a scandal. After hitting rock bottom, he realizes there is only one place that can use his specific skill set of illusion and deception: the FBI. He then opens up a business as an illusionist consultant, “helping the government solve crimes that defy explanation and trap criminals and spies by using deception.”

I’m two minds on this one. »

Marvel’S Inhumans: Vin Diesel Thinks Abandoning Idea For Film Would Be A “Big Mistake”

12 hours ago

Marvel’s The Inhumans is a project that’s gone through a lot of interesting incarnations. A few years back, the name popped up in a list of films in the then-upcoming Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some time ago, the film was rumored to be pulled from the Marvel slate, and soon after, it was officially pulled, though Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was careful to point out that the film could still happen at some point down the line.

In the time since the film’s removal, we’ve learned that it would actually be an ABC series — one that would be shot on IMAX and would have the first two episodes premiere in the large screen format. To further confuse things, it was also stated that the Inhumans series would have nothing to do with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., despite that show’s use of the Inhumans. »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Green Lantern Corps w/ A Special Guest!

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties. 

Previous Entries:Casting The BatmanAssigning Directors For Man of Steel 2, The Flash, and Captain MarvelPitching What The Next Marvel/Netflix Collaborations Should BeCasting and Pitching Shazam!

This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.

Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

Tom Clancy’S The Division Video Game Movie Lands Oscar-Winning Filmmaker To Helm

14 hours ago

Assassin’s Creed seemed it would be the one to turn the tide on the bad luck video game movies have faced for decades. It had all the fixing for a memorable movie: a great premise, a talented director, and an A-list cast. Unfortunately, the resulting film didn’t really seem to strike a chord with audiences, and the movie sort of fizzled out in theaters. While it wasn’t what one would categorize as a bomb, its current come of $188 million on a $125 million budget isn’t the most promising of hauls.

Yet, we know this isn’t the end. The genre of video game movies have struggled for years, and will likely continue to do so for a very long time. The fact is that there are plenty of amazing stories that can be pulled from these IPs that would do wonders for the big screen. Ubisoft has »

New Power Rangers Photos Give Us A Close Look At Zordon & More!

15 hours ago

Yesterday, Lionsgate released the second trailer (or first trailer, if you consider that first one a teaser) for their upcoming film, Saban’s Power Rangers. This is a movie that was highly questionable for both Power Rangers fans and mainstream moviegoers. Would they be able to make the whole idea of Power Rangers palatable for the current general audience? More importantly, would they be able to do it in a way that didn’t betray the tone and style of the source material?

The first teaser we got a few months back was definitely a good first step in the right direction. Admittedly, the more hardcore fans of the franchise likely felt a bit betrayed by it. As cool as it was, it didn’t necessarily feel like Power Rangers. Many outlets — us included — pretty much agreed that the film had taken a page out of Chronicle’s book (though, »

Updated: Hot Rumor: Warner Bros. Prepping To Go All The Force Awakens With Harry Potter?

15 hours ago

Update: In light of the previously-reported rumor, author J.K. Rowling has taken to Twitter to dispel any plans to turn Harry Potter and the Cursed Child into a trilogy of films in the future.

I know a lot of people are looking for reasons to be cheerful today, but there is No Truth to the rumour about a #CursedChild movie trilogy!

J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 20, 2017

So there you have it. That's not to say this couldn't happen down the line, but as it stands, there are no current plans to do this.

Original Story:

It's always funny to see ideas you once kicked around suddenly become a reality...

Karen Gillan On Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 & Avengers: Infinity War Appearances, & That Skimpy Jumjani Outfit

15 hours ago

Doctor Who alum Karen Gillan definitely has her plate full. But like any talent in Hollywood, Gillan has spent years working hard to get that hard work, so that’s probably a prospect she meets with a lot of joy. Not only will she be directing her first film — the formerly-titled Tupperware Party (now currently untitled) — next year, but she’s also set to hit the big screen as an actor in the Marvel sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the adventure sequel/reboot Jumanji this year.

Gillan made her Marvel debut in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Thanos’ badass daughter, Nebula — a mean-spirited woman with a real chip on her shoulder. We last saw the blue belle ripping a man from his spaceship and taking off, far away from the climax chronicled in the movie. As with ninety percent of the surviving Marvel characters, she was »

Justice League: Central City Confirmed For Film Due To Photo - Whoops!

17 hours ago

A few weeks back, the watchful eyes at Reddit caught an image from the Suicide Squad viral website called Argus-gov, that shows the file on the short-lived Slipknot, which detailed his moving to Keystone City to, "...pursue his criminal ambitions." DC comic fans will tell ya that Barry Allen is from Central City, and Wally West and Jay Garrick are from Keystone City, and these two cities are sister cities. Check the photo below.

The news caused some speculation that either the Justice League film would have Barry living in Keystone City, or perhaps we may get to see Wally West or Jay Garrick in some capacity. Now, I am almost positive that in Suicide Squad, Captain Boomerang got caught by The Flash in Central City, so I just assumed that the two cities would coexist much like they do in the Flash DC CW show. But, thanks to an »

Comic Book Review: Green Lanterns #15

17 hours ago

   This issue titled “A Day In The Life” is a fill in issue between arcs, but it shines a bright light (no pun intended) into the life of a person living with Anxiety. We all know by now the struggles that Jessica Cruz goes through accepting the fact that she is a Lantern, it was only in the last issue where she really began controlling her constructs thanks to a brief encounter with the Phantom Ring. Even with that in the back of her mind she still wakes up with self-doubt, but manages to get it together and get to breakfast with her partner Simon. They go from conversing in a diner to fighting a monster with the Justice League, in which Jessica plays an important part in saving a city from a falling submarine. With that Jessica and Simon travel the states rescuing those in need. At one point »

WWE Nxt Reaction 1/18/2017

19 January 2017 4:42 PM, PST

Nxt is in the books for another week. They’re building up to their quarterly event Nxt Takeover: San Antonio. This episode saw the contract signing between Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura for the Nxt Championship at Takeover. We also saw The Revival face off against Tm-61 in a brutal match. We also saw an offer from Eric Young of Sanity to Tye Dillenger. How did this show hold up?

I have to say I am enjoying the Sanity stable led by former Tna star Eric Young. It’s a perfect use for him. Eric is not going to be someone who will go after a major championship in the WWE. That is not a knock against him by any means because not many people get the call to be the top guy. But what he is great at is being a teacher. He can be the veteran who »

Colossal Trailer: Anne Hathaway Controls A Giant Monster In Hilariously Weird-Looking Flick

19 January 2017 2:26 PM, PST

You know, if you had asked me if we were living in an age filled to the brim with kaiju (giant monster) movies, I would’ve probably answered with a pretty solid no. With all the content that’s out there, I think it’s safe to say the big ones out there are mostly standard superhero fare. But if I took a little deeper look, and actually looked at what’s come out recently, as well as what’s on the horizon, I may recognize a different narrative. 

Between the likes of Transformers (I know, not technically a kaiju film), Pacific Rim, Power Rangers, Godzilla, and Kong: Skull Island, there definitely seems have been a subtle resurgence of the long-running genre. And with it, it almost seems like the perfect time for a parody film to hit theaters. While I couldn’t call the trailer to the upcoming Anne Hathaway film, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: Drax Is “Blowing People’s Minds” In Test Screenings, Says James Gunn

19 January 2017 1:46 PM, PST

One of the greatest things about the original Guardians of the Galaxy film lied in the well-rounded cast. Yes, they were all weird and quirky, but they were also all fun in their own unique way. Hardly anyone had the same main character, and even if you disagreed on the “best” character, there’s a good chance you understand why others like their own respective “best” characters.

Groot is a sweetheart, Rocket’s a broken soul, Star-Lord is a goofball, Gamora’s a badass, and Drax is perhaps the oddest being ever to walk onscreen in a Marvel movie. The character — played by Dave Bautista — is big and buff, and has some real dark Punisher-esque motivations, but his inability to understand figurative language gave him a humorous unexpected edge. You need look no farther than the “Nothing goes over my head” scene to see how amazing it works out on screen. »

Binge Watching: Netflix Calls Out HBO On Their Future

19 January 2017 1:12 PM, PST

Netflix spent 6 billion dollars over the course of a few years to stamp its imprint on our television (can we even call it television anymore?) watching habits. They normally give you a new series every week or two on Friday, and surprisingly many of them have been better than the few series we see a year on HBO that are comparable. For years, HBO was my goto for entertainment, but with the rising of AMC, FX, and Netflix this has since changed. Netflix credits the rise of their power to another aspect, binge-watching.

In an article with Business Insider, we learn that BBC has decided to go to a binge-watching format with new seasons, and this is not surprising considering their close bond with Netflix. Here is a quote from Netflix regarding the matter.

The BBC has become the first major linear network to announce plans to go binge-first with new seasons, »

Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens To Get Limited Series Adaptation With Gaiman Showrunning

19 January 2017 1:10 PM, PST

We truly are living in an age of quality television. Of course, a bit part of that has to do with the fact that networks have grown comfortable with the idea of limited series and serialized storytelling, and as a result, it’s opened the floodgates on the types of stories that can be adapted to the small screen. For example, last weekend saw the release of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, a show that wouldn’t have lasted in the mid-2000s by virtue of the fact that it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Back in 2004, filmmakers shoehorned the story into a movie (a medium generally characterized by having beginnings, middles, and ends), and while the movie was decent, it wasn’t the same story as the books.

Similarly, author Neil Gaiman is getting his books looked at more and more, thanks to this new climate. »

Breaking: Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam Will Now Lead His Own Movie! (Dceu)

19 January 2017 12:40 PM, PST

Well, I didn't see that coming...

But then again, Dceu, you always manage to find new ways to surprise me, don't you?

Moments ago, The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Black Adam will now get his own movie. Yup, the same Black Adam that action superstar Dwayne Johnson has been attached to play for years now will now get his own movie, aside from whatever happens with Shazam!

Last week, the internet was abuzz about Shazam! because of an apparent major meeting that took place between Johnson, his producing partners, and the new braintrust over at Warner Bros. that is overseeing the DC Extended Universe. When he walked away all pumped and shared with his fans on social media that the future of the Dceu now looked brighter than ever, everyone instantly assumed that Shazam! would not be gaining some traction and that the movie was going to enter »

Hellboy III: Guillermo Del Toro To Meet With Actor Ron Perlman & Artist Mike Mignola

19 January 2017 12:24 PM, PST

While the first two Hellboy films were met with fairly positive fan and critical reactions, the box office hasn’t really been behind them — at lest not enough to justify spending cash on a third film. The first one was produced on a $66 million budget, and made just short of $100 million. Taking into account marketing, it’s likely this one only made the most meager of profits following the home release. Hellboy II: The Golden Army fared a bit better, making $160 million on an $85 million budget. Again, not great, but not bad.

For nearly a decade, fans have asked for a third Hellboy film. They’ve brought it up to del Toro himself, and they brought it up to actor Ron Perlman, who plays Hellboy in the movies. But of course, the responses to those requests have pretty much been the same: “We’re trying. We’ll see.” If a Hellboy III is to work, »
