Twitter Activity Has Fans Thinking Brad Peyton May Direct Shazam!

3 hours ago

Though most of the focus is on Wonder Woman and Justice League right now when it comes to DC’s upcoming slate of films, one project that’s starting to heat up is Shazam! One of the reasons for this is Dwayne Johnson, who will be playing Black Adam in the adaptation and has been teasing it quite a bit lately. That, coupled with some pretty awesome fan art, makes it easy to see why interest and excitement for the film has increased so much and now, the hype train is starting up once again.

Not too long ago, Johnson told us that a big announcement regarding Shazam! would be made soon. While we still haven’t got anything official just yet, fans are starting to put the pieces together and an intriguing new development has arisen tonight. You see, in the past, casting news for DC’s projects has »

Future X-Men Movies Won’t Worry About The TV Shows

4 hours ago

At the moment, the X-Men universe isn’t in the best shape. On the cinematic side, we’ve got spinoffs like Deadpool 2 and New Mutants simmering away in development, but there’s been nothing official from 20th Century Fox on when the next sequel in the main series will be released, or which actors are returning for it. Rumors point to the film adapting The Dark Phoenix Saga and being called X-Men: Supernova, but again, the studio has yet to comment, leaving fans to wonder just what exactly’s going on with our favorite mutants.

In terms of television, the franchise has two properties in the works and again, there’s a bit of confusion as to how they’ll tie into everything. We’ve got Legion, which premieres next month on FX, and then an untitled family drama coming to us from Matt Nix and nearing a pilot order. »

The Snare Review

6 hours ago

The Snare‘s biggest problem (among Many), is that stakes are never defined. Creator C.A. Cooper introduces three (hollow) characters, a seaside vacation setting and a conflict. No backstory or forward thinking, just a situation where horrors will presumably present themselves. Imagine being told “this is a horror movie, and it is meant to scare you,” without having any proof of concept. Not exactly the rousing introduction you’d hope for, but at least expectations are set early – and even then, they’re barely met.

Eaoifa Forward stars as Alice Clarke, a girl who’s first seen packing a suitcase. Her father (?) walks into the room and asks a few questions, but before long, she’s driving in a car with friends Lizzy (Rachel Warren) and Carl (Dan Paton). Then, after some piggish “Would You Rather?” questions from Carl, the gang arrives at a vacant holiday apartment complex where they’re going to party irresponsibly. »

David Haydn-Jones Joins Supernatural Season 12 In Key Role

8 hours ago

Deadline has confirmed tonight that David Hadyn-Jones has joined the cast of Supernatural as the mysterious Mr. Ketch. We actually met the character for the first time in the midseason premiere, but his appearance has been teased for months now. An associate of the British Men of Letters, he’s presented himself as an ally to Sam and Dean, but can he be trusted? While it seems like he wants to help them, Ketch also has a reputation for being extremely dangerous, so it’s every bit as likely that he’s arrived in America to take out the Winchesters.

That dangerous side is something that the official character description teases as well, as it’s said that this member of the shadowy organization of monster hunters operating in the UK is suave, handsome, totally competent and a sociopath. That’s definitely bad news, and something which is sure to »

Daredevil Actor Vincent D’Onofrio On Why We Won’t See Kingpin In The McU Any Time Soon

8 hours ago

Ever since Marvel announced that they’d be producing a series of Netflix TV shows that would be set in the same universe as their big screen adventures, fans have wondered when we’d see some kind of crossover. Many assumed that Avengers: Infinity War would be the movie that’d unite Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the street-level vigilantes seen on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, but alas, that wasn’t to be – and it’s actually looking more and more unlikely that it’s going to happen in the foreseeable future.

Wilson “Kingpin” Fisk, in particular, is a character that fans would love to see go up against the likes of Spider-Man and Captain America in the McU. Unfortunately, though, it just doesn’t seem that something like that will ever come to fruition. Actor Vincent D’Onofrio recently confirmed that we’d be seeing »

Keanu Reeves Strikes A Pose In New John Wick: Chapter 2 Photos

9 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

With less than a month to go until Keanu Reeves’ badass hitman returns to our screens in John Wick: Chapter 2, the excitement for Lionsgate’s sequel is palpable. It’s understandable, too, as the first outing presented a slick, stylish action thriller with some beautifully choreographed combat and firefights. Not to mention it also featured one of Reeves’ best performances in years.

Now, with the follow-up almost here, the studio has released a new batch of stills showing off the titular hitman along with several of the supporting cast members. There’s nothing terribly revealing here, but a few of these shots are quite cool and only serve to heighten the anticipation. The one of Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, though seen before (albeit, watermarked), is particularly great, as it teases the long awaited Matrix reunion between the two.

Set to pick up where the original left off, »

Fantastic Beasts 2 To Enter Production This Summer, Zoe Kravitz Teases Newt And Leta’s Relationship

10 hours ago

If Fantastic Beasts introduced Leta Lestrange via a blink-and-you’ll-miss it cameo (read: a photo buried amongst Newt Scamander’s belongings), 2018’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 will dramatically expand the canvas for Zoe Kravitz’s “tragic figure.”

A former flame to Eddie Redmayne’s brilliant Magizoologist, Lestrange is poised to have a strong, compelling arc in Fantastic Beasts 2, and Kravitz has assured Potterheads that the David Yates-directed sequel will lend Lestrange “a lot of time to grow and develop” when it roars into theaters late next year.

Chatting to Collider ahead of her role in HBO’s Little Big Lies, Zoe Kravitz touched base on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, which is expected to enter production sometime this summer.

“No, that starts in June or July, I think. It’s sometime in the summer. I’m very excited. The one day I was on set for that, »

24: Legacy Season 1 Review

10 hours ago

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

24: Live Another Day marked the long overdue return of Jack Bauer, but just like season 8, it failed to give the now iconic character a satisfying conclusion to his story. If you’re expecting 24: Legacy to deliver on that front, then you’ll no doubt be disappointed. That’s because this premiere marks a fresh start for the franchise as the focus is shifted to Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), an ex-Army Ranger with a past that’s about to come back and haunt him in a big way. Sound familiar? Well, that’s because it’s essentially the premise of the first season of 24, and that’s just the first of many mistakes made by a reboot which often feels more like a retread than a series with anything new to say.

Carter is called back into action after learning that he »

Final Fantasy VII May Have Bumped Off More Characters Than Aerith

11 hours ago

Considered by many to be one of the most influential RPGs the industry has ever produced, the significance and enduring legacy of Final Fantasy VII can’t be overstated.

In many ways, Square Enix’s beloved classic popularized the Japanese role-playing game for those in the west, all the while cementing Final Fantasy‘s status as an international powerhouse. Fast forward to now and, on the verge of the game’s 20th anniversary, Polygon has published an exhaustive long-form feature that documents the history, development, and fallout from Final Fantasy VII. It’s a truly insightful piece, one that’s well worth reading for any RPG fan – regardless of whether you’re a longtime Final Fantasy fan or not.

Buried in that feature is a fascinating exchange between Tetsuya Nomura (Character and Battle Visual Director) and Director Yoshinori Kitase, who reflect on both the decision to kill off Aerith – arguably »

Jessica And Trish Take A Stroll In Latest Pics For The Defenders; Krysten Ritter Game For Possible Second Season

11 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Filming on Marvel’s The Defenders is quickly beginning to reach its conclusion, but Krysten Ritter is already entertaining the idea of a possible second season.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly (via Screen Rant), the Jessica Jones actress touched base on the intertwining narratives of Netflix’s eight-part event series, along with the inherent benefits of sharing the spotlight with three other heroes. Unlike her acclaimed solo show, Krysten Ritter was able to work under a much more flexible schedule for The Defenders, clocking in for a three-day week as opposed to featuring in practically every scene. Such a forgiving workload even has Ritter feeling optimistic about the future, after the actress revealed that she’s game for a potential second season of The Defenders. It’s more of an off-hand comment than anything else, but it’s still an exciting tease nonetheless.

Game Of Thrones Prequel Series More Likely Than Spinoff As HBO Mulls Over Remaining Episode Count

12 hours ago

Kudos to HBO for lending Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss a healthy amount of creative freedom as they prepare to bring the curtain down on the network’s flagship fantasy series. Last we reported, Benioff and Weiss had tentatively mapped out plans for a final 13 episodes – seven this year, six in 2018 – before calling it quits, but it seems there’s a reason HBO is yet to officially renew GoT for its eighth and final season.

It’s almost a foregone conclusion that Game of Thrones will land a renewal before the year’s end, but the fact that HBO has been keeping mum hitherto has raised all kinds of questions online. That’s not to say production has hit an unexpected roadblock – far from it – simply that David Benioff and Dan Weiss are still “trying to get a shape” of season 8 which, according to HBO programming president Casey Bloys, »

Concept Art For Canned Darth Maul Game Reveals What Could Have Been

13 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Cast your mind back to 2012, at a time when Disney officially purchased Lucasfilm and all of its assets in a landmark $4.05 billion acquisition, and you may recall Red Fly’s Darth Maul-centric Star Wars game.

Tentatively titled Star Wars: Maul, the spinoff was set to take place long after the events of Return of the Jedi, thereby teeing up a “darker, grittier” story in which the iconic Sith Lord took center stage. At the time, developers at Red Fly pointed to Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum as a big inspiration – the stealth-action gameplay, the powerful, badass protagonist – before development ground to a halt in 2011.

All in all, the Darth Maul Star Wars game had been in active production for around a year, according to artist Thomas A. Szakolczay, who recently took to ArtStation (via Game Informer) to shed new light on the game that never came to be. »

Titanfall 2 will soon be on the receiving end of a substantial update to its multiplayer component, Respawn Entertainment has announced. As per a blog post on its official site, the developer says it fully intends to deliver on the promise of supporting its futuristic shooter with new content post-release, a process that began last year with the release of Angel City’s Most Wanted. Released as a free download, the add-on included a remake of the Angel City map from the original Titanfall, as well as new Titan kits and the Wingman Elite Pistol weapon. But that was just a taste in comparison to what’s coming, by the looks of it.

Scheduled to arrive in the near future, the next content drop will include a new mode – Live Fire – that pits two teams of six pilots »

Charlie Cox Wishes To Have A Rooftop Burger With Luke Cage On The Defenders

13 hours ago

Whenever superhero team-ups occur, be they in comic books, animation or live action, it’s not just the big fight scenes that fans remember – it’s those little moments the characters share that are forever etched into our memories. Well, if Charlie Cox has his way, The Defenders will retain that aspect.

In a recent discussion with Entertainment Weekly, the Daredevil actor said he would like to bring a certain heartwarming moment to life in the near future:

“One of my favorite images is from a Daredevil issue with Luke Cage and Daredevil on a rooftop eating cheeseburgers. I love that.”

Luke Cage will find himself in quite the predicament by the time The Defenders begins, but don’t expect Marvel’s Power Man to spend all eight episodes locked up behind the bars of Seagate Prison.

That’s according to Mike Colter, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly in anticipation of Netflix’s upcoming team-up series. It’ll premiere sometime this summer – long after Iron Fist stages his solo outing in March – and off the back of last week’s media blowout, Colter has offered up some fascinating new details regarding both the ensemble series and, specifically, the next chapter in Cage’s story.

“It’s safe to say Cage is not going to spend the entire season of The Defenders behind bars. He’s been able to come clean and deal with his past… The »

Galactic Empire: A Star Wars Themed Metal Band From A Galaxy Not So Far Away

13 hours ago

As a film critic and metal enthusiast, I can’t resist a good meeting of mediums. Movies like Deathgasm utilize the devil’s music to further themes and action, while bands like Austrian Death Machine (whose songs are based on Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes) exist to pay homage to pop culture. Movies may be my life, but metal provides my soundtrack – so imagine the speed of my heartbeat after being asked to a “Star Wars themed metal show.”

That’s the exact description a fellow NYC critic came to me with. A Saturday night concert at Webster Hall, featuring a Star Wars themed metal band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the headlining slot. Galactic Empire is their name, and they don’t need a Death Star blast to melt your faces.

I arrived halfway through the second opener, Metalfier, but while the growly triumvirate were wrapping things up, Galactic Empire was already making their presence known. »

Blizzard Hands Out Bans For Overwatch Players Caught Nuking Matches

As is, has been and always will be the case for developers, the more popular your game becomes, the more likely it is to be targeted by certain unsavory types that want to cheat their way to victory. Blizzard’s Overwatch is no different, and it seems as if the popular shooter is starting to suffer from problem players on an increasingly regular basis. One such issue is ‘Nuking’ (or, for those that prefer the technical term, DDoS attacks): an act that sees online servers flooded with connection requests from multiple sources in order to force disconnections or latency issues.

Blizzard has, of course, taken note of the act being performed, and has started swinging the ban hammer liberally in order to make online play in Overwatch a much more enjoyable experience. In a statement sent to Kotaku, »

Rick Cosnett To Return To The Flash

14 hours ago

With parallel universes and alternate timelines now being the norm on The Flash, it comes as no surprise that characters who have been killed off have made their return. Case in point: Multiple versions of Harrison Wells being brought to life as Tom Cavanagh continues to flex his acting muscles.

Aside from Black Flash, you can look forward to seeing Rick Cosnett return in some capacity, although what that may be remains unknown at this point. After heroically sacrificing himself in the season 1 finale, he popped up a few times over the course of the show’s sophomore year, most notably in a dream sequence and when Barry Allen decided to go back in time a year (as if we shouldn’t have seen Flashpoint coming).

Not being one to divulge details, Cosnett took to Twitter to confirm his comeback.

Ok, hate to tease you but now I can say »

The Founder Review

14 hours ago

“Here is the church. Here is the steeple. Except this one has golden arches, and feeds all the people.”

Do you like my update to the child’s game above (you know, with the hand motions and stuff), inspired by McDonald’s CEO Ray Kroc? As The Founder tells us, Kroc equated McDonald’s illuminated “golden arches” to small-town beacons like church steeples or town hall flags. That’s what he saw when visiting the McDonald brothers’ first restaurant and their air-tight production chain – a product, efficiency and franchise potential.

Kroc was a salesman looking for his next big score, and through perseverance, he stumbled upon a fast-food empire in the making that no one could deny him. Not the good-old-boy McDonald brothers (who he screwed), not his first wife (who he divorced), and certainly not those rich, entitled friends he first looked to for help. Kroc’s story is »

Jason Momoa Picks His Favorite Justice League Member

14 hours ago

While fans anxiously await the the next trailer for Justice League, which is reportedly coming this spring, we’ll have to satisfy our hunger with whatever images or bits of information come out of Hollywood.

It’s not unheard of for actors to forge bonds when filming a motion picture or television show, often citing their co-stars as family. Apparently, this is holding true with those involved in the production of Justice League as Jason Momoa, Aquaman himself, recently told The Hollywood Reporter that Ezra Miller is his “little brother” when asked which member of the League was his favorite. Aside from the obvious choice of Aquaman, we’ll take his word that he loves the Flash just as much.
