Comic Book Review – Nailbiter #12

4 hours ago

Zeb Larson reviews Nailbiter #12…

The dreaded media has arrived!

I don’t know what to do with this issue of Nailbiter. On the one hand, I’m grateful that something happens that gives us a little bit of insight into Buckaroo, and we get some good ongoing banter between Warren and Finch. On the other hand, we have waited six issues for a reveal that is at best underwhelming. What makes it even worse is that it’s only half of the reveal, because we’re not promised the rest until Issue #13. I will be discussing spoilers ahead, so read on at your own discretion.

Pastor Louis begins the day with his “normal” routine, which includes his wife’s belief that their son Hank is still alive. He meets with his parishioners and tells them that the police can no longer protect them, so they must take things into their own hands. »

Captain America: Civil War promo artwork gives us a look at Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge armor

9 hours ago

Yesterday we got what was said to be the first promotional artwork from next year’s superhero showdown Captain America: Civil War featuring Cap and Iron Man going head-to-head, and now another piece of concept artwork has arrived online via El Mayimbe, which shows Iron Man in his Bleeding Edge armor…

If you’re unfamiliar with the Bleeding Edge armor from the comic books, the suit makes Iron Man extremely powerful, being powered by a high-yield R.T. node (or “man made star), and is stored inside Tony Stark’s body using nanotechnology until mentally called upon. Of course, there’s no guarantee the movie version would incorporate that element, and could just be using the same design.

Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a »

Joss Whedon clashed with Marvel executives, wanted Spider-Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron

11 hours ago

Joss Whedon has gone on record saying that he will not be returning to write or direct Avengers: Infinity War due to fatigue settling in, but there may be more to it than that.

It is now coming out that Whedon had to argue with Marvel executives on Avengers: Age of Ultron to keep some scenes in, most notably the hallucinations sequences and all of the character development for Hawkeye. He said that the only way he was allowed to use those scenes was if he put in the cave scene with Thor, which is obviously to set up the plot for Thor: Ragnarok. While watching Age of Ultron it does feel that that scene is disjointed from the rest of the narrative, and Whedon even seems to agree.

“The dreams were not an executive favorite either — the dreams, the farmhouse, these were things I fought to keep,” Whedon said. »

Harley Quinn co-creator Bruce Timm approves of her Suicide Squad look

12 hours ago

Late on Sunday, Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted out the first image of Task Force X in full costume, giving us our first look at Deadshot, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo, Slipknot, Rick Flagg, Enchantress, Katana and, of course Harley Quinn.

While the photo itself has received a predictable mixed reaction, fans have been happy about Margot Robbie’s look as Harley. But, what does the character’s co-creator, Bruce Timm, think of her? io9 decided to find out.

Timm – who introduced the character in Batman: The Animated Series with the help of Paul Dini – saw the pic at the same time we did, and gives it his stamp of approval:

“I just saw the pic like a couple of hours ago. It was interesting. I was frankly a little nervous about what Harley would look like, but I thought she looked really cool. So I’m optimistic, »

Tom Hardy wants to play The Punisher

13 hours ago

Hopefully Marvel Studios’ creative teams are up-to-speed on social media, because Collider just broke a story that Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy wants to play The Punisher.

In a new interview with  The Dark Knight Rises alum, Collider asked Hardy about his recent Suicide Squad departure and asked if he’d be interested in playing more comic book characters. Hardy seemed interested in the prospect, and put Frank Castle on the top of his wishlist:

“I want to play Punisher… I want the Punisher, or Splinter Cell, I want something… I don’t know what I want… [but] I’m not big enough to be The Punisher, I’m 5’9″ [laughs].”

Hardy’s height may be a bit shy of Punisher War Zone‘s Ray Stevenson, who clocks in at 6’4″, but he’s just two inches shorter than The Punisher‘s Tom Jane, who stands at 5’11”. Hollywood magic could easily make »

Tom Hardy talks Suicide Squad, and reveals why he left the project

14 hours ago

Back in December when we got the first casting news for Suicide Squad, it was announced that Tom Hardy would be set for a return to the DC universe, swapping The Dark Knight Rises‘ Bane for Rick Flagg, leader of Task Force X. However, barely a month later Hardy exited the film, with rumours suggesting that he was unhappy with the script and the direction of his character. Well, it turns out those rumours were fiction, as the actor has revealed to Collider that scheduling issues with Alejandro G. Inarritu’s The Revenant forced him to drop out, and that he’s disappointed not to be part of the DC supervillain ensemble.

Kathleen Kennedy confirms another Indiana Jones movie is in the works

14 hours ago

Indy Watch continues today, as Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy once again affirmed that another installment in the Indiana Jones franchise is in the works. Those hoping for solid confirmation that the archaeologist/adventurer is coming to the big screen anytime soon, however, will leave here disappointed.

The internet is already rampantly running stories confirming that Indiana Jones 5 is on the way, but what Kennedy really said is that Disney now has the rights to the beloved property, and are working on a way to bring it back to life. In an interview with Vanity Fair for the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens-heavy edition of the magazine, Kennedy said the following:

“In buying the company, Disney also got rights, for better or worse, to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise. Kennedy confirmed rumors that another Indy movie »

Avengers director Joss Whedon quits Twitter

22 hours ago

Joss Whedon (writer and director of both Avengers films) has decided to close his Twitter account. The reason is believed to be due to backlash from those that feel Black Widow was too much of a damsel in distress in his latest film Avengers: Age of Ultron.

His final tweet doesn’t actually confirm this, but there has been a negative reaction towards Black Widow getting captured at one point in Age of Ultron. What must be noted though is that Scarlett Johansson was pregnant during filming, which most likely explains Black Widow taking a backseat to the action and mostly being relegated to a romance subplot with Bruce Banner.

Before signing off, Whedon chose to thank all of his Twitter friends with this message: “Thank you to all the people who’ve been so kind and funny and inspiring up in here.”

Whedon will not be coming back to »

Imperative Entertainment – which is run by Tim Kring, creator of Heroes – has teamed up with Black Mask Studios to adapt the comic book series Mayday as a scripted television series.

As our damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, they begin to wonder if this is all really happening or if they’re just plain crazy… Probably both.

Lionsgate has announced that it has officially given the green light to John Wick 2, with Keanu Reeves set to reunite with directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and screenwriter Derek Kolstad on the follow-up to last year’s acclaimed action thriller.

“With such tremendous fan and critical support for ‘John Wick,’ we knew that there was still so much more of this story to tell,” said Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Lionsgate. “We are thrilled that Keanu, David and Chad have re-teamed with us and promise to bring audiences even more excitement the second time around.”

At this point, there’s no word on a potential release date for John Wick 2, and it’s unclear whether it will go into production before Leitch and Stahelski’s Valiant adaptation Bloodshot.

The Simpsons renewed for two more years by Fox

4 May 2015 11:34 PM, PDT

A few years ago, it seemed that the legendary animation The Simpsons was finally coming to a natural end. Fast forward those few years, and it continues to outstrip many other long-running shows, and has today been renewed by Fox for another two seasons.

The show will now run into its 27th and 28th seasons, and will reach the huge milestone of over 625 episodes by the end of the 28th season. Deadline reports that it was never in any real danger of not being renewed, and that it was only ever a case of renewing the contracts of its voice cast that ever put a “spanner” in the words.

TheSimpsons still gets very decent ratings, with an average Us audience base of 7.7 million over the various platforms the show now plays across. In addition, it is expected that Fox’s other big animation, Family Guy, will also join the likes of Bob’s Burgers, »
