Legion Season 2 Won’t Follow The Comic Storylines Too Closely

FX’s Legion is approaching the end of its first season, and up to this point it’s garnered great acclaim from fans and critics alike for its brilliantly unconventional (if at times a little confusing ) approach to the standard “superhero” story – although, some have taken issue with its refusal to acknowledge certain elements from the source material.

Though the show is set in the established continuity of 20th Century Fox’s big-screen X-Men universe, it’s yet to draw too heavily on the movies or the comics for inspiration. Last week’s penultimate episode did finally drop a few hints that Charles Xavier was David’s real father (we saw an X-spoked wheelchair and a bald chalk drawing), but stopped just short of mentioning him by name.

Now that the show has been renewed for a second season, »

In A League Of Their Own: The 20 Greatest Justice League Members

1 hour ago

With Zack Snyder’s Justice League set to arrive later this year, DC’s premiere superhero team are taking their place in the limelight once again. While the League have traditionally been the most iconic comic book team around, their thunder has been stolen in recent years by the emergence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the launch of the Avengers on the big screen.

Since the team first formed in 1960 – in The Brave and the Bold #28 from Gardner Fox, the architect of the Silver Age of Comics  – the Justice League’s roster has exploded from just seven founding members to countless heroes. It gets even bigger if you include the various denominations of the League that have been formed over the years – like Justice League Detroit, Justice League International and, most recently, Batman’s Justice League of America.

But who are the greatest Justice League members of all-time? With commiserations to runners-up like Firestorm, »

New It Images Released Ahead Of First Trailer This Wednesday

2 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed just yet, there’s a very good chance that the first trailer for Mama director Andrés Muschietti’s re-adaptation of Stephen King’s classic horror novel, It, will be online at some point this Wednesday. Warner Bros. certainly seem to be hyping something up, anyways, as they’ve just released a trio of terrifying new stills from the movie.

The first gives us another look at the demonic killer clown known as Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), whose face is partially obscured by one of the balloons he uses to lure children to their doom. The second provides us with a first official glimpse of The Losers Club assembled. There’s Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher), Ben Hanscom (Jeremy Ray Taylor), Richie Tozier (Finn Wolfhard), Stan Uris (Wyatt Oleff), Mike Hanlon (Chosen Jacobs), Eddie Kaspbrak (Jack Dylan Grazer) Beverly Marsh (Sophia Lillis »

There’s a lot of hype surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 right now, and understandably so. The first film was a smashing success for Marvel, both critically and commercially, and so far, the sequel looks to be even better. Test screening scores have been through the roof and box office analysts are predicting one of the biggest openings of all-time. So, it seems like a no brainer then that director James Gunn would want to return for the recently confirmed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, right? Well, maybe not.

Talking to Fandango in anticipation of the film’s release, he said that fans need to calm down a bit in regards to the threequel, as Vol. 2 hasn’t even been released yet and the focus should be on “what we have right now, »

True Detective Season 3 Gets A New Lease Of Life With Deadwood Creator David Milch

3 hours ago

HBO veteran David Milch has come aboard to help pump some fresh blood into True Detective season 3.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop, revealing that Milch – best known for his work on Deadwood – has signed on to work with series creator Nic Pizzolatto, who has already turned in an arc for the opening two episodes of True Detective season 3. Sources close to EW caution that the collaboration between David Milch and Pizzolatto is in the very early stages, but even still, this is our first tangible sign of progress to come out of the True Detective camp in years.

Following its blistering debut three years ago, the anthology series was essentially placed on ice at HBO after its second season, one which dramatically expanded the scope and shifted the focus to California, failed to deliver. Since then, the resounding message from the network has been that True Detective was dormant, not dead, »

Official Synopsis For The Tomb Raider Movie Tees Up Lara’s Origin Story

4 hours ago

A grand origin story awaits Lara Croft in the official synopsis for Roar Uthaug’s upcoming Tomb Raider movie.

Coming to us by way of Vanity Fair – the same source that formally unveiled our first look at Alicia Vikander in the title role earlier this morning – the logline teases a missing father in Richard James Croft (Dominic West) and a bona fide hero in the making. Still wet behind the ears and working as a bike courier in London, the Lara Croft of Roar Uthaug’s live-action movie is similar to the one seen in Crystal Dynamics’ rebooted video game series in that the iconic figure is still finding her feet in archeology’s dangerous underworld.

Vikander’s protagonist naturally has a vested interest in her tomb raiding in the sense that she’s hoping to locate the whereabouts of her missing father. That global search leads her to a »

O’Shea Jackson Jr. Circling Key Role In Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

4 hours ago

Kong: Skull Island, the second entry into Legendary and Warner Bros.’ interconnected MonsterVerse, opened to a mighty $70 million at the Chinese box office this past weekend, bringing its global cume within touching distance of $400 million. And though it’s not quite on the level of, say, Beauty and the Beast or a tentpole Marvel movie, Legendary’s shared universe is shaping up nicely.

Thanks to the inclusion of a post-credits sequence, Skull Island also sets the stage for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Michael Dougherty’s 2019 sequel that has already drafted in the likes of Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) and Kyle Chandler of Bloodline and Manchester By the Sea fame. When pulled together, it makes for quite an exciting roster of talent, and Variety has learned today that O’Shea Jackson Jr., one of the many breakout stars of hit rap drama Straight Outta Compton, is »

Gotham City Sirens: Jessica Chastain Entertains The Idea Of Playing Poison Ivy

5 hours ago

Would Jessica Chastain entertain the possibility of playing Poison Ivy for David Ayer’s DC spinoff Gotham City Sirens? In short: yes, but on one condition.

Cinema Blend caught up with the actress in anticipation of The Zookeeper’s Wife, Niki Caro’s powerful period piece in which she plays the heartfelt keeper of Warsaw Zoo during the throes of World War II – look for that one to open opposite Ghost in the Shell this Friday, March 31st. Beyond that, could we see the Oscar-winner make the journey over to the Dceu to portray Pamela Isley? It’s not off the table, according to Chastain, who told the outlet that she’d be game for the coveted part providing Ayer’s vision for Ivy was to create a “strong, dynamic” anti-hero that didn’t succumb to a hackneyed stereotype.

Per Cinema Blend:

“I’m interested in all things where the characters are strong and dynamic, »

Family Comes First In The Official IMAX Poster For The Fate Of The Furious

5 hours ago

Eight films into Universal’s Fast and Furious saga and the theme of family continues to be the glue that binds the franchise together. But with F. Gary Gray’s 2017 sequel The Fate of the Furious, the Toretto crew will find that bond lying in tatters after their fearless leader Dominic (Vin Diesel) goes rogue.

Plucked out of his self-imposed exile by the nefarious Cipher (Charlize Theron), previous trailers have essentially outlined the dangerous path that Diesel’s hero (?) finds himself on, and in true Fast and Furious fashion, Dom walking out on his nearest and dearest is enough to spawn a globetrotting adventure involving airplane stunts, nuclear submarines, and cars raining from the sky. Because what’s an entry into the Toretto saga if it doesn’t dial the ridiculousness up to 11 and rip the knob off?

The Fate of the Furious screeches into theaters on April 14th. F. Gary Gray »

Earlier today we reported on Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim saying that this year’s season finale would be unlike previous offerings and that there would also be some unexpected returns. One name we brought up was that of Laurel Lance, but we weren’t sure in what capacity she’d possibly appear in.

Well, we didn’t know how right we’d end up being.

As it turns out, Katie Cassidy will not only be returning for the final two episodes of this season, but she’s been confirmed as a series regular for season 6. But, there’s a bit of a twist, even if it’s to be expected: She’s playing Black Siren, Laurel’s Earth-2 doppelganger.

Having first appeared late in The Flash season 2, Black Siren popped up again in Arrow »

New Line To Summon Forth First Trailer For It Adaptation This Week

6 hours ago

The deluge of trailers for 2017’s biggest tentpoles shows no sign of letting up anytime soon what with Trailer Track reporting that the first footage from Andy Muschietti’s It movie ought to be online later this week.

Pointing to a listing from Deluxe Digital, it’s understood North American cinema chains will screen the trailer alongside Ghost in the Shell, with advanced screenings of Paramount’s lavish manga adaptation kicking off from Wednesday, March 28th. Expect the promo to make its way online soon thereafter, then, and at least based on the wave of reactions that surfaced from SXSW 2017 – the Austin festival hosted the first reel of footage for Muschietti’s ambitious redo – horror fans are in for a delightful R-rated treat.

Of course, those familiar with Stephen King’s iconic source material will know that it’s Pennywise the Clown, the demonic being to be played by Bill Skarsgård, »

Combat Evolved: The 10 Most Memorable Moments From The Halo Franchise

6 hours ago

Picking out the most memorable moments in the Halo franchise is fraught with difficulty, and yet when you sit down to do it, certain moments do stick out. It’s those spine-chilling cutscenes that live with you long after the credits have rolled, or those breathtaking plot twists you didn’t see coming.

Together, Master Chief and his sidekick Cortana have taken part in some of the most memorable moments in all of gaming, and it was my unenviable task to pick the best of the lot. Some you’ll agree with, some you won’t, but rest assured, these have been chosen in good faith. After sixteen years of memories, this article is a small thank you to Bungie and the entire Halo team.

Of course, heavy spoilers lie within, so tread with caution if you’ve yet to play every entry in the series. Otherwise, get ready for a trip down memory lane. »

Okja Images Peel Back The Layers Of Bong Joon-Ho’s Monster Movie

6 hours ago

See Full Gallery Here

Of all the many, many original features lining Netflix’s slate for 2017 – think War Machine or David Ayer’s fantastical Bright – there’s a vocal pocket of subscribers keeping a close eye on Okja, the all-star monster movie in the works from South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho.

Best known for helming Memories of Murder, The Host – another monster movie cut from a similar cloth as Okja – and 2013 cult hit Snowpiercer, Joon-ho has assembled quite the ensemble cast to bring his latest feature to life, and today we have three new images designed to shed light on the human side of Netflix’s upcoming creature feature. Given that Okja largely centers on the unusual bond between the titular animal and a young girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), it’s only fitting that the young up-and-comer is ushered into the spotlight here. Throughout the course of Joon-ho’s monster flick, »

Two Scenes From Kevin Smith’s Latest Supergirl Episode Emerge

6 hours ago

With just a few short hours to go until Kevin Smith’s directorial return to Supergirl hits airwaves, the network has circulated a few teaser clips in an effort to tide us all over. But, as usual, they don’t make the wait any easier.

That sentiment could especially be aimed at the first clip, which sees Mon-El’s parents, Lar Gand and Rhea, visit him at work. Not surprisingly, they aren’t happy seeing royalty earning an hourly wage, making me recall similar events seen in Coming to America.

Likewise, Mon-El is less than thrilled with the bounty put on his girlfriend’s head, which he suspects to be their fault. Honestly, that’s what we’ve been expecting for a while, too, but we’ll all just have to tune in to see who the culprit really is. Aside from maybe Cadmus, the list of suspects is quite short. »

Eddie Brock Is Back In Black In Venom #6 First Look

Well, Venom certainly has been the talk of the town in recent weeks, hasn’t he? Aside from a movie starring the cult favorite anti-hero being closer to becoming a reality than ever before, True Believers can sleep easier knowing that Eddie Brock will make his triumphant return to the comic books in a matter of weeks.

It’s well known that several others have bonded with the symbiote in recent years and each probably accrued a generous fan base, but it stands to reason that the majority will always yearn for the first to take up a specific mantle to come back at some point. And that’s what makes the next few months of Venom comics so special.

While we bide our time waiting for the big moment, Marvel has put out a small preview »

Destiny 2 Officially Announced By Bungie

7 hours ago

Destiny 2 is real.

On the heels of last week’s leaked poster, one which pegged Bungie’s sci-fi shooter for a release on September 8th, the official Destiny Twitter account has now confirmed the existence of the sequel with a simple image…and that’s it, really. No mention of an exact due date or trailer to accompany today’s announcement, but with Destiny 2 now officially out in the wild, it’s safe to assume that Bungie and Activision will begin firing up the ol’ marketing machine over the coming weeks – particularly if that purported September release window proves to be true. Some form of open beta test is said to be on the cards, too, so stay tuned for more details on that.

Either way, the unveiling of Destiny 2 comes just as Bungie begins to wind down support for the first game. Its final content update, Age of Triumph, »

Deathstroke Will Begin Shipping Monthly In June, With “New Direction” Beginning In July

7 hours ago

Without a doubt, this has been a decade like no other when it comes to mainstream exposure for the character of Deathstroke. Having appeared on the hit CW series Arrow, the Batman: Arkham video game franchise and (I hope) the upcoming film The Batman, Slade Wilson has reached a broad audience like never before.

Thankfully, the world’s deadliest mercenary has also had a comic book series to call his own since 2011, although it did endure some relaunches. Even so, readers have seen the likes of Kyle Higgins, Rob Liefeld, Tony Daniel and, most recently, Christopher Priest put their own unique stamp on the supervillain – or anti-hero, depending on who’s telling the story.

Since the Rebirth era kicked off, Deathstroke was counted among the series fortunate enough to enjoy a twice-monthly shipping schedule. But for reasons unknown at this time, which could be anything ranging from less than desired »

The Avengers Get The Justice League Treatment In New Fan-Made Trailer

7 hours ago

This past weekend, Warner Bros. finally released the brand new trailer for Justice League, sending fans everywhere into a frenzy. After so many months of seeing next to nothing from what’s without a doubt one of 2017’s biggest films, it was nice to finally get an extended look at the tentpole. While it’d be prudent to deem Zack Snyder’s upcoming blockbuster a surefire success based on the new preview alone, we will say that we’re definitely feeling a whole lot more optimistic about it than we did before.

With its hard rock soundtrack and gritty tone, the footage we got here is a far cry from what we’ve seen so far over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what if Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were given a similar treatment? What if the House of Ideas slapped a new coat of paint over Thor, Iron Man, »

Expect This Year’s Arrow Season Finale To Be Unlike Any Other

Have you ever sat back and wondered if the citizens of Star City get really nervous when May creeps up and possibly take trips out of town to avoid the next major terrorist attack? Well, it sounds like they may be able to breathe a little easier this year as the upcoming season finale of Arrow aims to break the cycle.

Before proceeding any further, let’s take a look at what executive producer Marc Guggenheim recently told Entertainment Weekly:

“We’re not going to destroy the city. We’re not even going to threaten the city. In fact, I can also tell you the finale doesn’t even take place in the city. Finally, the citizens of Star City can breathe easily in May.”

While that’s certainly very cryptic, the first place my »

Exclusive Video Interview: Kristen Bell Talks Chips

8 hours ago

Chips represents something of a burning passion project for Dax Shepard, who initially approached WB with a pitch that took the core concept of the ’70s TV show and slapped on a new lick of paint. The end result is a wildly over-the-top, laugh-out-loud funny, buddy cop movie in the vein of Lethal Weapon or Michael Bay’s Bad Boys, one in which Shepard is joined by Ant-Man‘s Michael Peña.

Together, they form the fiercest duo on the California Highway Patrol, one which spends their days catching criminals – or at the very least, trying to – and generally frolicking around on America’s sun-kissed West Coast. Rounding out the cast list for the hilarious, R-rated romp are Kristen Bell (Dax Shepard’s significant other), Rosa Salazar, Adam Brody, Jessica McNamee, Vida Guerra, Rene Moran and Kelly Richardson.

Recently, at the film’s press day in Los Angeles, we had the »
