Warwick Davis’ Character In Han Solo Movie Might Have Been Revealed

2 hours ago

Warwick Davis might not be a familiar face in the Star Wars franchise, but he is one of the saga’s most prolific actors. As a child, he appeared in Return of the Jedi as the Ewok Wicket and has featured in some masked role in various outings since. This year, he’s on double duty as both the voice of assassin Rukh in Star Wars Rebels and an as-yet-unrevealed role in The Last Jedi. Not only that, but thanks to a new report, we now might know who he’ll be playing in next year’s Han Solo prequel.

According to Making Star Wars, Davis will be suiting up as a revamped version of a classic robot. Specifically, the Gnk power droid – which fans may recall previously appeared as just “a box with legs,” as Msw puts it. Davis’ character will be called Fight Droid 2, who’s “decked out »

The 10 Most Controversial TV Finales Ever

3 hours ago

It’s often said not to judge a TV show by its pilot episode, as those are notoriously difficult to get right. However, at the other end of the process, a finale is probably even harder to write. By that point, you have a whole series that’s depending on you not screwing things up. It’s not surprising, then, that so many popular shows have delivered hugely controversial conclusions over the years.

Let’s look at a recent example. Twin Peaks returned after a quarter of a century back in the spring and delivered a fittingly surreal follow-up to the 1990s cult favourite. Its finale, which could be the end of this show, naturally left viewers at a loss of what to make of it all. Still, most fans agreed that the crazy conclusion was the best way for the series to bow out.

Not all TV finales are so lucky, »

The Justice League Cast Recall When They Were Tapped For Iconic Roles In New Promo

3 hours ago

Throughout our lifetime, there are certain significant experiences that we’re able to remember vividly. Perhaps they could be first dates, concerts, the loss of a loved one or even what we were doing when major historical events occurred. We’d prefer you not include waiting in line all night to purchase the latest smart phone, but we’ll let it slide.

Well, if you’re fortunate enough to count yourself as being amongst a handful of actors to star in the live action debut of the Justice League, odds are that you’re going to take that with you for the rest of your life. In fact, quite recently, this exclusive club recounted what they were doing when Zack Snyder tapped them for each iconic role when pressed by Chris Hardwick during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gotham Ep Says Harley Quinn Won’t Show Up After All

4 hours ago

Undeniably, Gotham has treated us to no shortage of classic Batman villains over the course of its four seasons, with fresh interpretations of the Penguin, Riddler, Scarecrow and Mr. Freeze already having been offered up. In fact, some would argue that the series has played host to the best live action iterations of those very characters.

Obviously, one fan favorite that we’ve all expected to show up at some point is that of Harley Quinn, especially since a proto-Joker, Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan), has stolen the show on more than one occasion. Truth be told, we, like many of you, were expecting Erin Richards’ Barbara Kean to transition to becoming this series’ version of the Clown Princess of Crime, but it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Now, executive producer John Stephens has told Cbr that such a thing isn’t in the cards, despite a mountain of evidence »

Heath Will Return To The Walking Dead

4 hours ago

Cast your minds back to The Walking Dead season 7, specifically episode six. While on the road, Tara and Heath were attacked by a horde of zombies in their camper. Though Tara escaped, she eventually made her way back to find evidence that Heath was able to get away, though he was nowhere to be found. And that, readers, is the last time we saw the character.

Naturally, fans have been wanting to know what happened to him ever since, so it’s a relief to know, then, that Heath has been promised to return to The Walking Dead at some point in the future. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple said:

“We definitely have not seen the last of Heath, period. I will say that. I don’t mean to disappoint the Heathies. He will be on the show. He will be within The Walking Dead again.”

Synopses For Legends Of Tomorrow And Arrow Season Premieres Arrive

4 hours ago

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow.

First, let’s talk about Legends of Tomorrow because it’ll be the first of these two shows to air. In “Aruba-Con,” we’ll see the Waverider crew bereft of the ship they call home and, apparently, carrying on with life in this broken timeline. Seriously, with dinosaurs running amok in the streets and Julius Caesar being a beach bully, I’m not sure if I’d be able to even sleep, so how do they manage? »

7 Superhero Movies With Terrific Plot Twists

5 hours ago

Plot twists have been a staple of film since the silent days of cinema. They’re a method of jump-starting a narrative that might have grown too predictable, or simply providing a new take on things that changes the audience’s perspective.

It should come as no surprise, then, that these tropes have been embraced by the sub-genre known to many as comic book movies. These are among some of the biggest blockbusters ever produced, and making each and every one of them memorable is a difficult task, even for talented filmmakers.

As we pointed out in another list, sometimes the attempts at a good twist fail, resulting in the plot crashing and burning. But there are many other writers who are more than capable of creating intricate stories, and these have gone on to stick in our heads.

So, without further delay, let’s look at seven terrific plot »

Synopses For Supergirl And The Flash Season Premieres Released

5 hours ago

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Supergirl and The Flash.

First, let’s talk about Supergirl, since that particular show will be the first from the Arrowverse to make its fall debut. In “Girl of Steel,” we’ll see the titular heroine face the existential crisis we’ve been expecting ever since the first footage from season 3 was shown at San Diego Comic-Con back in July. Still, we don’t expect her to be down in the dumps for too long since more recent promos »

Arrow Season 6 Photos Tease Black Canary Vs. Black Siren Battle

5 hours ago

The CW have released a new batch of promo images for the Arrow season 6 premiere, “Fallout”, which arrives on our screens in just a few weeks. Fans will recall that season 5 ended on a massive cliffhanger, as most of Team Arrow appeared to die in an explosion orchestrated by Prometheus on Lian Yu. While these photos are careful not to reveal anything we didn’t know before about who survived, they do tease an exciting battle to come in the premiere.

It seems Dinah Drake’s Black Canary and Earth-2 Laurel Lance Aka Black Siren will have a rematch in the upcoming episode. By the looks of things, Black Siren has returned from Lian Yu looking to make a mark on Star City’s underworld and has acquired some henchmen to do her bidding. The photos also showcase Dinah’s new costume, which was first unveiled a few weeks back. »

You Need To See This Incredible Avengers: Infinity War Poster

5 hours ago

Even though Avengers: Infinity War is just eight months away now, Marvel hasn’t really revealed anything about the movie so far. A couple of posters leaked from this summer’s Comic-Con, as did some footage (though that was quickly removed), but that’s about it. At least one fan is tired of waiting around, though, and has instead created their own dream poster for the movie – and it really is something.

Based off the classic Infinity Gauntlet cover from the comics, the colourful cosmic image is focused around Thanos the Mad Titan and his all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which we know he’ll finally get to use very soon after years of teasing. Surrounding him are the assembled heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and you can check it out along with a few other posters that’ve surfaced recently in the gallery below.

The Scarecrow Attacks In Images From Next Week’s Episode Of Gotham

6 hours ago

After turning in an impressive season premiere last night, the cast and crew of Gotham look to keep the ball rolling with next week’s episode, “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper.” From that foreboding title, you can probably surmise that the Scarecrow will play a huge role, no doubt confounding Jim Gordon and the rest of the Gcpd at every turn.

Had you tuned in last night, then you’d have seen Charlie Tahan return as a young Jonathan Crane, effectively reprising his role from season 1. For the wealth of the episode, he was a broken, scared child. But, near the end, he emerged as possibly the most comic book accurate version of Scarecrow we’ve seen in live action to date. Well, at least when it comes to appearance. Needless to say, his debut has thus far been met with much positive fan reaction online.

The Punisher Premiere Window Seemingly Narrowed To October

6 hours ago

This week alone, The Punisher has unearthed blistering trailers, blood-drenched promos and new stills designed to place Frank Castle firmly on the warpath.

But for all of the hustle and bustle, a firm release date continues to elude Jon Bernthal’s ferocious vigilante. The Punisher will debut sometime before the year’s end, that much we know, but when it comes to a specific due date, Marvel and Netflix have been unusually tight-lipped ever since its first Defender-less solo series was confirmed.

It is, of course, a carefully crafted ruse to generate interest in The Punisher, though we imagine a fair amount of Netflix subscribers already have one eye trained on Castle’s standalone saga. Such a strategy is not without its faults, though, as there’s always a risk of some anonymous insider leaking the show’s release window ahead of schedule – or, as this case with Total Film, »

The Terminator Reboot Will Reportedly Ignore Genisys; Schwarzenegger Hints At New Title

7 hours ago

The Terminator is going back to the well.

James Cameron’s prized sci-fi series, one that has churned out five feature films to varying degrees of success since ’84, entered an unscheduled hiatus soon after the release of Genisys, which drastically underwhelmed across the board. Indeed, Alan Taylor’s planned trilogy-starter was such a dud that Paramount Pictures decided to scrap the series altogether, instead spearheading a hard reset with Tim Miller (Deadpool) and Cameron himself.

Fast forward to September of 2017 and The Terminator is fast beginning to take shape. Not only is Arnie back, back, back as that iconic cybernetic organism, but we’re also learning that Linda Hamilton has climbed aboard to reprise as Sarah Connor. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, it’s being reported that Miller’s Terminator redo won’t acknowledge the botched Genisys whatsoever.

Brie Larson Has Her Sights Set On Directing A Marvel Movie

7 hours ago

Thanks to giant franchises – like Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically – we’ve now become accustomed to the ‘Lack Of Female Directors Explanation’ that’s so often trotted out by senior production executives: ‘Hiring a woman director is a priority for us, but we have to find one who wants to do it, and has experience before we hand them a giant movie.’ This is a frustrating response to calls for more women at the helm, not least because the same criteria doesn’t always apply to male directors hired by these studios. Now, though, it seems that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson could be the perfect answer to that standard delaying tactic.

The Academy Award winning actress has just made her feature length directorial debut with Unicorn Store. The independent comedy – written by Samantha McIntyre – has been highly praised by audiences and critics alike, following its screenings »

Polaris Sports A Fresh Look In First Photos From The Gifted Season 1, Episode 2

7 hours ago

Much digital ink has been spilled regarding The Gifted, Fox and Marvel’s small-screen drama involving the Struckers, a regular ol’ American family who soon discover that their two children – namely Lauren (Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) – boast mutant abilities. Dangerous abilities.

That places them between the crosshairs of some nefarious organizations, who want nothing more but to round up any and all mutants and subject them to gruesome, unspeakable tests. And so, in order to protect their children, Reed and Caitlin Strucker – played here by Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker, respectively – take a leaf out of Logan‘s book and go on the run.

Granted, The Gifted is yet to release, but those fortunate few who have already caught a screening of its premiere episode, “eXposed,” have lumped praise on the X-Men spinoff, and in a bid to keep that momentum ticking over, a »

Will Opens The Door To Another Dimension In Latest Stranger Things Season 2 Poster

8 hours ago

Young Will Byers opens the door to another dimension in the latest, downright creepy poster for Stranger Things season 2.

Unveiled via Twitter, below you’ll see the haunted Will (Noah Schnapp) essentially staring into the abyss, as that tentacled sky-demon looms overhead. Dubbed the Shadow Monster (Thessalhydra?) by series creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer, this is another sure-fire sign that the youngest Byers will be suffering a potent case of Ptsd come October. And if you had spent days wasting away in the Upside-Down, wouldn’t you?

Yes, the Demogorgon may have been reduced to ashes – at the expense of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, it seems – but the Duffers have vowed to unleash a horde of new monsters in Stranger Things season 2. And judging by this all-new poster, it would seem Will Byers has become something of a walking conduit of the Upside-Down, given his dreams are plagued with blood-red, »

Fan-Made Tribute Pits It’s Pennywise Against The Clown Prince Of Crime

8 hours ago

Pennywise and the Joker are undoubtedly two very different, yet equally terrifying clowns.

Indeed, It actor Bill Skarsgard has gone on record in the past to differentiate Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination from the Clown Prince of Crime, but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated fan from compiling a tribute video that pits Pennywise against DC’s cackling villain.

First spotted by the folks at ComicBook.com, YouTube user Mightyraccoon!, who knows a thing or two about brilliantly executed crossovers, has created a world in which the Joker from Rocksteady’s beloved Arkham series confronts Pennywise, and essentially presents a challenge to King’s otherworldly entity. If nothing else, it’s a neat piece of fan service, one that piggybacks on the incredible, record-breaking success of New Line and Andy Muschietti’s It reboot.

As of this writing, It and The Exorcist are currently neck-and-neck on the box office charts with around $230 million apiece – domestically, »

Finn Jones Is Back In The Dojo Training For Iron Fist Season 2

9 hours ago

Having only just gone and saved New York City from catastrophe – at the expense of The Hand and Midland Circle, no less – one might assume that the Defenders deserve a vacation, or some other form of respite to take the load off and, ultimately, recover from the events that rocked the Big Apple.

Turns out that’s not the case, though – far from it, in fact – as Marvel and Netflix are currently spearheading new instalments of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. All three standalone series are expected to premiere sometime in 2018, and though the Powers That Be took a little longer than expected to issue the go-ahead, a second season of Iron Fist is also in the works.

Having drafted in new blood in Raven Metzner (Elektra), who takes over showrunner duties from the outgoing Scott Buck (Inhumans), Iron Fist season 2 is said to be targeting a production start in “four or five months. »

Guardians Director James Gunn Believes Marvel’s Inhumans Is Beyond Saving

9 hours ago

Inhumans may not be cancelled yet, but even James Gunn believes Marvel and ABC’s family drama is beyond saving.

The Guardians of the Galaxy director recently hosted one of his regular Facebook Q&As, fielding questions about Vol. 3, Marvel’s current slate, and everything in between. When asked about the chances of him swooping in to “save” Inhumans, though, Gunn joked that, “it does not look like there is much saving left for the Inhumans.” Ouch.

There are, of course, certain logistics that prevent James Gunn from simply waltzing onto the set of Marvel and ABC’s eight-part series. For starters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its TV counterpart have been placed on two separate tracks, meaning that aside from some subtle nods here and there, shows like The Defenders and Inhumans have been hatched under Marvel’s TV arm and are therefore out of Gunn’s sphere of influence. »

Rumored Snoke/Leia Scene Won’t Take Place In Star Wars: The Last Jedi After All

10 hours ago

General Leia Organa needn’t worry about crossing paths with Supreme Leader Snoke.

At least, that’s according to Andy Serkis, who is all set to reprise as the First Order mega-villain come December. Indeed, as one of the lesser-known facets of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Snoke has piqued the curiosity of Star Wars fans for months – years, even – who have been left to dissect every little detail that surfaces online. That fascination reached a whole new level earlier this month thanks to Force Friday II, which brought forth new details on Snoke’s icy home planet, a potential resurrection, and that über Star Destroyer known as the Supremacy.

Stretching 40km across, it’s a super-sized command center on which Andy Serkis’ antagonist governs the First Order, and though there have been signs that Finn and Rose – John Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran, respectively – will be dispatched on a »
