Justice League Trailer Teaser Parody Reveals What Superman’s Been Up To

11 hours ago

The new Justice League trailer will finally be with us tomorrow, but in the meantime, we’ve been able to enjoy a series of teasers for each of the titular heroes. However, conspicuous by his absence from the bite-sized promos – and that team poster – was Henry Cavill’s Superman. While the Man of Steel was front and centre in the Comic-Con poster that we got last summer, he was absent from the trailer shown during the event and has been nowhere to be seen ever since.

Why? Well, it could have something to do with the fact that he died at the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The closing seconds of that movie teased some sort of resurrection and we’ve known for ages now that he will indeed be back, but Warner Bros. has kept his eventual return a closely guarded secret. As a result, we »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’s Kurt Russell And Sylvester Stallone Likely To Return In Future Marvel Movies

12 hours ago

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Character Posters Gallery 1 of 9   

Click to skip

More From The Web Click to zoom 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the next big superhero movie of 2017, something that a groovy series of character posters recently made clear, and one of the most exciting things about the sequel is the fact that it stars legendary actors Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone.

The former plays Ego the Living Planet, the father of Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord. Stallone’s role, meanwhile, is a complete mystery. We know that he’ll have a close relationship with a character played by Michael Rosenbaum, but for now, that’s all we have to go on. However, in a new interview, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has revealed that both Ego and Stallone’s mystery character could be around for the long haul in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. »

Check Out All Five Justice League Teasers In One Awesome Video

12 hours ago

Over the past couple of days, Warner Bros. has released a total of five trailer teasers for Justice League. The clips have focused on Aquaman, Batman, the Flash, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg, and while we expected a sixth to reveal Superman, we were instead treated to a Man of Steel-free poster. Now, as we anxiously wait for the full-length trailer tomorrow, one fan has combined all five teasers to create an epic video featuring the titular team.

As you can see above, it’s edited together quite well and though it obviously doesn’t give us anything new, it should definitely help get you even more excited about what’s to come. Unlike the Wonder Woman previews which gave away all the best parts of the trailer, these bite-sized promos have only served to whet the appetites of fans for what the main course is going to deliver. And at this point, »

Kurt Russell Teases The Mantis/Ego Dynamic In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

13 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ranks as one of the most anticipated films of the year, and for good reason. James Gunn blew the world away with 2014’s wildly entertaining original, a movie that defied every odd and exceeded every expectation. The second installment promises more action, more humor, and more intergalactic shenanigans, and it’s a safe bet that Gunn and his fellow filmmakers did everything they could to expand upon the greatness established in the sequel’s beloved predecessor.

So far though, we really don’t know too much about the plot or the new characters that are set to be introduced. One of the most mysterious has been Kurt Russell’s Ego the Living Planet, but in a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the actor confirmed a few new details, revealing that his character will indeed be connected to Pom Klementieff’s Mantis.

According to the report, »

Robert Rodriguez May Get Behind The Camera For Escape From New York Remake

13 hours ago

Remaking a film like Escape From New York isn’t necessarily the best idea, but if anyone’s going to be in charge of such a project, Robert Rodriguez would be right up there on our list of people we’d want to get behind the camera. Thankfully, it looks like that’s exactly what will happen, as The Tracking Board is reporting that the studio has their eye on him to direct. It’s not a done deal just yet, mind you, but 20th Century Fox is certainly hoping to lock him down.

With a screenplay from Luther creator Neil Cross, the Escape From New York remake has been brewing in development for quite a while now, so it’s certainly good to hear that it’s finally getting off the ground. From what we understand, the studio hopes to reinvent the franchise, like they’ve done with the Planet of the Apes, »

This Fan Edit Of The End Of Rogue One And The Start Of A New Hope Is Amazing

13 hours ago

Gareth Edwards famously paid attention to George Lucas’ 70s science-fiction aesthetic when making Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with the climactic scenes aboard the Rebel Blockade Runner eerily reminiscent of the classic opening of 1977’s A New Hope. In fact, the prequel ends precisely where Lucas began, with Vader in hot pursuit of Princess Leia as she desperately tries to escape with the Death Star plans.

Now, with Rogue One about to release on Blu-ray, Vimeo user Barre Fong has spliced together the two films – and the gap is seamless. Granted, this isn’t the most technically accomplished of fan edits, as it’s essentially simply playing the last minute or so of Rogue One and the first couple of minutes of A New Hope consecutively, but it comprehensively demonstrates the care Edwards took in matching his film to the classic trilogy.

Of course, Lucas had his own stab »

Daenerys’ Dragons Are Growing Up Fast In Anticipation Of Game Of Thrones Season 7

15 hours ago

It’s been six years since Daenerys walked into the flames in the final moments of Game of Thrones‘ season 1 finale and emerged with three newborn dragons perched on her shoulders. We’ve watched them slowly mature over the intervening years and now, with season 7 set to premiere on July 16th, we’re going to see them play a significant role in this penultimate outing.

Much of the marketing for the new season has focused on the opposing forces of fire and ice (to the point of asking fans and reporters to watch a slowly melting block of ice that revealed the season premiere date), so we should certainly expect to see Viserion, Rhaegal and Drogon unleash their full dragon-y power upon Westeros very soon. From the sounds of it, previous episodes “The Dance of Dragons” and “Battle of the Bastards,” amazing as they were, were merely a taster of what season 7 will bring. »

Check Out This Disappointing Monster-Free Clip From Colossal

16 hours ago

Nacho Vigalondo’s much hyped Colossal is soon to hit theatres after a rapturously received run at film festivals (check out our Tiff review here). It sounds worth watching if only for its absolutely bonkers premise: a heartbroken woman (Anne Hathaway) returns to her hometown after being dumped, only to discover that when she walks on a playground at a certain time of the day a giant monster appears in Seoul that matches her movements, smashes up the city and kills hundreds.

It sounds delightfully wild, and I’ll be first in line for a ticket. Even so, it’s a little baffling that the marketing team have chosen to release this particular clip to crank up anticipation, as it consists of 49 monster-less seconds of Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis sitting on a bench talking about their feelings. Now, I can totally understand that a movie might not want to »

Stunning New Justice League Poster Unites The Titular Heroes

16 hours ago

It’s been an unbelievably busy week for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, with the film’s marketing campaign finally kicking off in earnest. Over the past few days, Warner Bros. has allowed audiences to familiarize themselves with each of the titular team members – aside from Superman, that is – by dropping promos and posters for all five heroes, which includes Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Batman and the Flash.

Admittedly, it’s been an interesting approach to build up hype for tomorrow’s grand trailer reveal and it’s certainly done its job, as the web is awash with everything and anything Justice League. Now, as we patiently await that aforementioned trailer, we’ve got one final piece of the puzzle: a stunning new one-sheet uniting the entire group. Seen in the gallery below, alongside the individual character posters, it brings together the team and provides one last look at them »

Another New Spider-Man: Homecoming Poster Features A Familiar Tower

17 hours ago

The Spider-Man: Homecoming poster released earlier today is a work of genius, firmly establishing Tom Holland’s Spidey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with humor, poise and subtly. Simply showing a superhero chilling out and enjoying himself feels vaguely subversive, especially in the face of the ongoing procession of DC’s Justice League scowling at the camera in been-there/done-that superhero stock poses.

Now, Sony Pictures UK have released an accompanying poster that, sadly, is a little more conventional. This one shows Spidey in a classic wall-crawling pose, clinging to the side of Avengers’ tower. I’ll give the poster designers this much credit; the way the crisp red of his costume pops against the cool blue sky and hazy city looks absolutely stunning.

So far, I have high hopes for director Jon Watts’ take on Spider-Man. Tom Holland has already proven himself more than suited to the role in »

Is Akira Finally Emerging From Development Hell?

17 hours ago

Way back in 2002, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to Katushiro Otomo’s classic manga/anime Akira. The film promptly sank into development hell though, with every attempt to begin production running into budgetary, scheduling or casting issues. Today, however,  it was revealed that the studio is eager to get the production moving again, no doubt fuelled by the anticipated success of Rupert Sanders’ Ghost In The Shell.

Akira takes place in Neo-Tokyo, a city built on the ruins of old Tokyo after a gigantic and devastating explosion. Its heroes are biker gang members Tetsuo and Kaneda, who become embroiled in a government conspiracy to unlock latent psychic talents. The anime beautifully combines sleek cyberpunk yumminess, body horror and surreal dream elements, all set to a cacophonously bizarre soundtrack of dissonant chanting.

Rumors are that Warner Bros. is approaching two directors – Daniel Espinosa (Life) and David Sandberd (Light’s Out). Both are currently hot properties, »

Lana Lang Perseveres In Superwoman #9

Superwoman #9 Gallery 1 of 6

More From The Web Click to zoom 

Although the events recently seen in Action Comics #976 undoubtedly shook the DC Universe to its core, it stands to reason that the effects will first be felt all throughout the Superman family of titles. Knowing this, the publisher is releasing such books under the banner of “Superman Reborn Aftermath” next month, one of which is today’s topic for discussion, that of Superwoman #9.

As the new creative team of writer K. Perkins and artist Stephen Segovia board the title with this particular issue, expect matters to get less easier as Lana Lang struggles with the hardship that comes with having the powers she inherited from the New 52 Superman upon his death. You know, now that Supermen pre and post-Flashpoint have been merged, will people still remember them as two separate entities? I guess we’ll have to »

Edward James Olmos Cast In Shane Black’s The Predator

17 hours ago

While the Alien is currently undergoing a mini-renaissance with Alien: Covenant, its sometime nemesis the Predator isn’t resting on his insectoid laurels, either. Writer extraordinaire Shane Black (who was disembowelled in the original) is looking to bring the iconic alien hunter back to his prime in The Predator, which has already been filming for a couple of weeks. The production has been notorious for constantly announcing new cast members, recently revealing that everyone from Jake Busey to Alfie Allen to Thomas Jane is set to appear.

Now, maybe, we have the final member of the roster: Edward James Olmos. Science fiction fans will see his casting as a good omen, the actor known for not only his sterling work in Battlestar Galactica, but his iconic performance as Gaff in Blade Runner, which he’ll reprise in Blade Runner 2049 later this summer. THR revealed the casting, but details on »

Chips Review

18 hours ago

Let’s be clear. Any attempt to adapt a television series for the big screen is inherently an effort to wring an influx of cash out of an often-dormant property, leveraging name recognition in the hopes that it will translate into solid box office. Rarely is such a move inspired by any real necessity or sharp creative vision, and perhaps this overt disinterest in reviving a beloved show with an infusion of fresh ideas is why we have far more films like Bewitched and Lost in Space and far fewer like Mission: Impossible and The Addams Family, both of which reinvigorated their respective franchises decades after the shows went off the air.

One approach that filmmakers have routinely taken in recent years is to apply a comedic lens to properties like Starsky and Hutch and 21 Jump Street. Chips – the latest film based on a popular TV series – takes a similar route. »

Iron Fist Cast Want To Crossover With Baby Groot

18 hours ago

As you’re undoubtedly aware, crossovers are all the rage with superheroes these days. Granted, it’s nothing new in the world of comic books, but once The Avengers kicked in the door back in 2012, it paved the way for Justice League, Netflix’s The Defenders and the awesome stuff The CW has been doing with their DC heroes. As such, that prompts journalists to inquire which heroes various actors would love to see their characters interact with.

On that note, MTV International recently had the opportunity to sit down with Iron Fist cast members Jessica Henwick and Finn Jones, bringing up the subject of crossovers. Interestingly enough, they were unanimous in their decision: Baby Groot.

But there’s a catch. You see, Jones wants the infantile talking tree to come to their realm:

“Bring Baby Groot to the Defenders, I think that would be way more interesting. I am »

Colin Farrell Might Be Joining Tim Burton’s Live Action Dumbo

18 hours ago

Ugh. Tim Burton is making a live action remake of Dumbo, and reports are saying that Colin Farrell might be starring in it. Sadly, it’s looking unlikely that we’d get to see him in the title role – that’s going to be some dead-eyed CGI monstrosity. Instead, he’s down to star as Holt, widowed father to two children who get mixed up in the adventures of the eponymous sad elephant.

Farrell would be joining Danny DeVito and Eva Green, rumored to be playing circus folk out to exploit the big-eared pachyderm. Burton mainstay Johnny Depp is yet to be announced, but c’mon folks, we all know that he was born to play the role of Dumbo’s lively yet diminutive mentor Timothy Q. Mouse. The film is being written by Transformers writer Ehren Kruger – because if anyone can produce an entertaining remake of a light-hearted Disney classic, »

Benjamin Percy Discusses Expanding The Teen Titans’ Lineup

18 hours ago

When anyone thinks of a superhero team, no matter which it may be, there are usually a few characters that come to everybody’s mind. In the case of the Teen Titans, one normally pictures the likes of Robin, Starfire and Kid Flash. But if you’ve got Young Justice on the brain, you’ll probably argue that Aqualad should be mentioned in the same breath.

It’s probably due in part to the generation coming up that led to current series writer Benjamin Percy to introduce Jackson Hyde to the team. Granted, the latest issue did feature the character’s debut, but he’s yet to become a Titan himself. As it turns out, a veteran author such as Percy knows the value of the slow burn, something he told Comicosity in a recent interview:

“There was an initial discussion about whether we should shoehorn him into the first arc, »

Get Acquainted With Cyborg In The Latest Justice League Promo

18 hours ago

So far, we’ve had bite-sized Justice League promos focusing on Wonder Woman, Batman, the Flash and Aquaman, all preparing us for tomorrow’s full trailer reveal. Now, it’s Cyborg’s time to enter the fray, and as the least well known of the bunch, it’s nice to finally get to spend a bit of time with Ray Fisher’s hero.

Unfortunately, we don’t get a whole lot here, as the promo runs only about 20 seconds in length – same as the others – and offers up just a few brief glimpses of the character in action. Still, it’s a tantalizing tease for tomorrow’s main course and it certainly has us eager to see more of Cyborg – who, by the way, looks totally badass in both this footage and his poster (which you can see in the gallery below).

Presumably, this is the last tease we’ll »

The Diceman Cometh To Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born

18 hours ago

Andrew Dice Clay – aka The Diceman – is in advanced talks to join Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper (here making his directorial debut) in A Star Is Born. Deadline reports that the notorious comedian will play Lady Gaga’s “very Italian” father in the remake of the 1937 classic.

This’ll be the fourth A Star Is Born to hit cinemas. William A. Wellman’s original was remade with Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954, then with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in 1976. The plot examines the effects of celebrity, with an ingenue singer falling in love with an established star. Over the course of the movie, the woman’s fame rises as the man’s falls – resulting all manner of booze-soaked bickering.

It’s a prime role for Lady Gaga, following her award-winning dramatic performance in American Horror Story. She’s made a couple of big screen appearances over years, turning »

Why God? Why? – Netflix Extends Deal With Adam Sandler

19 hours ago

Somewhere right now, Adam Sandler is very happy. His films have made a combined total of $3 billion, with his last, the execrable Pixels pulling in $230m on a scanty $70m budget. Adding to his bulging pile of happiness is the news that Netflix, obviously over the moon with the success of future classics The Ridiculous 6The Do-Over and the upcoming Sandy Wexler are going to pay him to make a further four films for them.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, said the following about the deal in a statement released earlier today:

Adam Sandler is one of the leading comedians in the film world, and his movies have proven to be extremely successful with our subscribers around the world. We are thrilled at the opportunity to extend our partnership with Adam and his entire team at Happy Madison and keep the world laughing.”

Apparently, Sandler’s films »
