Mark Hamill (“Star Wars”) Reprises His Role As The Trickster — A copycat killer who goes by the name “The Trickster” (guest star Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (guest star Mark Hamill), who has been imprisoned for 20 years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry (John Wesley Shipp) prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for help with a case, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) came up with the idea for the particle accelerator. »

Why Mark Hamill Was Scared of "Ruining" The Flash While Reprising His Iconic Trickster Role

4 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jumping back into a role decades after first portraying it should come second nature to Mark Hamill by now. Not only is he reprising his iconic Star Wars role, Luke Skywalker, in the highly-anticipated blockbuster sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he's also returning to The Flash tonight after first appearing in the original '90s show as The Trickster. "I'm a fan. I loved the comics when I was a kid and I watched the original series," Hamill told E! News along with a small group of reporters at a press screening of the episode. "When this version came on, my daughter Chelsea is a big fan, and I watched it from the very first episode. I even thought, since they were doing Mirror Master »

New 'Star Wars 7' Trailer Coming with 'Avengers 2'?

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released back in late November, fans have been clamoring for more footage from director J.J. Abrams' highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure. An unconfirmed report from January revealed that the second trailer will be attached to prints of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is now being backed up by a new report from Collider, which states that the trailer is "definitely attached to every copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will play in theaters." Obviously, this move makes perfect sense, since Disney owns both Marvel and LucasFilm, and because Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected to be one of the biggest movies of the year. But the news hasn't been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm yet.

The site also reports that, as expected, Disney will first roll out the trailer for fans who attend Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, »

Mark Hamill Heads To 'The Flash'

5 hours ago | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Having "Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill join the cast of "The Flash" for this week's episode was a thrill for the cast.

"That was really surreal," Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash) told Access Hollywood recently about having Hamill come on the show as the incarcerated Trickster.

In this Tuesday's episode, Hamill lays James Jesse, aka The Trickster, who is prison (coincidentally the same one housing Barry's dad, Henry Allen). A copycat, who uses James' old moniker, causes trouble in Central City, prompting Barry and Det. Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) to go to Hamill's character for help.

‘The Flash': 5 Things to Know About ‘Tricksters’ and Mark Hamill’s Return

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whether you’re a fan of CBS’ 1990 version of “The Flash,” “Star Wars,” or comic book culture in general, the March 31 episode of “The Flash” is sure to satisfy, with genre icon Mark Hamill reprising his ’90s role as one of the Scarlet Speedster’s main antagonists, James Jesse — aka The Trickster — a character that demonstrated the actor’s anarchic chops even before he lent his voice to The Joker for “Batman: The Animated Series” and its many offshoots. While the villain starts out safely behind bars (allowing Hamill to channel his inner Hannibal Lecter), it doesn’t take long for chaos to engulf Central City after a copycat Trickster (Devon Graye) starts pulling from the criminal’s explosive playbook.

Not only is “Tricksters” an unrepentant trip down memory lane for fans of the previous show, it also ties into the larger mythology of the current CW series, progressing the »

‘Red One’ #1- The Girl from Glasnost

8 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Red One #1

Writer: Xavier Dorison

Penciller: Terry Dodson

Inker/Colorist: Rachel Dodson

Publisher: Image Comics

Alongside his work on the current Princess Leia book with Mark Waid, Terry Dodson is once again doing a monthly book, but Red One, originally published as Red Skin by Éditions Glénat Bd in France is more of a passion project. Collaborating with French writer, Xavier Dorison, the Image miniseries is set during the late seventies which “is close to his heart.”

That period brings back a wave of nostalgia with such films as Star Wars, music by the Sex Pistols and tv shows like the Bionic Man, Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman, and the Incredible Hulk making a cultural impact. It’s during that era where top Russian agent Vera Yelnikov is dispatched to America to infiltrate and spread communist values, but also to investigate the Carpenter, a serial killer who is murdering liberals across the country, »

Bring on a Valiant Shadowman Movie

8 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’m sure all Valiant fans are aware of the recent announcement of a Valiant and Dmg relationship established to bring Valiant characters to TV and the big screen. Prominent in the press release is Shadowman, a character that isn’t really prominent (like he’s not even around at all) in current Valiant comics and I think if we took a poll would probably rank as the most disappointing of the regular comic releases, barring the possibility of Quantum & Woody which admittedly is a bit of an oddball title to classic Valiant fans. I think Shadowman, even the one we saw in the comics recently, works for me seamlessly in the way some of the other titles don’t to a movie audience.

What we’ve heard over and over from Valiant is their awareness of the Marvel plan. It depends on how literal we want to take that, »

Next Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer to be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was announced last year, the idea was for it to be shown exclusively in theatres before making its way online (which made a nice change of pace in today’s Internet age), and it seems as though the next trailer will follow suit.

The second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will first debut over Star Wars Celebration, which runs from the 16th to the 19th April, but will then be attached to Disney’s other tentpole adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Joss Whedon-directed superhero team-up movie is set to be released on UK shores a few days after Star Wars Celebration on April 22nd. No doubt there will be a fair number of bootlegs pottering around the Internet before it gets attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron when released in the States in May. »

Star Wars Celebration to premiere new Force Awakens trailer

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will premiere its new trailer at an upcoming convention celebrating the film series.

Star Wars Celebration will unveil a new preview of Jj Abrams's seventh instalment between April 16 and 19, before it is rolled out in cinemas.

The new trailer will be played in cinemas before Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will be released in most regions on April 22. It will follow in the UK a day later on April 23, and in the Us on May 1.

It has yet to be confirmed when the trailer will debut online.

Meanwhile, British actress Felicity Jones was recently announced as the lead star of spin-off film Rogue One.

Star Wars: Ranking The Lightsaber Battles From Worst To Best

13 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Episode VII: The Force Awakens is only months away from its release (just saying that gives this fanboy chills) and the rumor mill has raged with what the galaxy far far away holds in store for us.

Expectations were already set high with Jj Abrams at the helm, but when the teaser trailer was released excitement hit hyperspace. Surprisingly, a moment of controversy arose towards the middle when a dark figure (presumably the movie’s primary villain) drew a lightsaber with a very… unique design.

Opinions warred between fans, some in favor, others abhorrent, of what is now called the cross-guard lightsaber. The irony here is that it’s not the first time Star Wars injected a new lightsaber – Darth Maul’s double-blade – and most swords have cross-guards in reality.

The teaser ended on a black screen, only the ghostly sound of a lightsaber powering up before fading into silence. »

New Trailer For Star Wars: The Force Awakens To Run With Avengers 2

18 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens pretty much brought the internet to a stop back in November. According to Collider, the trailer proper will be doing something very similar at, or possibly before, the time it lands on May 1 attached to Avengers: Age Of Ultron in Us cinemas. Expect the Lego version to land on May 2.Where this leaves the UK trailer break remains to be seen. The Star Wars Celebration, taking place between April 16-19, will see it debuted in Anaheim, and that could potentially lead to an official online launch soon after. Alternatively, we may not glimpse it until Age Of Ultron opens in UK cinemas on April 24. Clear? Excellent.In any case, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is directed by J.J. Abrams, from a script that he wrote with Lawrence Kasdan, and stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, »

The Next Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Is Attached to Avengers: Age Of Ultron

19 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When will we see a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Mark May 1st on your calendars, if you haven’t already. We’re confirming what /Film previously reported that the new trailer for J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel is definitely attached to every copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will play in theaters, giving it a guaranteed massive audience. Of course, Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm so this is was an obvious place for the next trailer to play (and at the beginning of the summer movie season, no less), but if there were any doubts, those can safely be put to rest. [caption id="attachment_374028" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] The new trailer will first premiere at the Star Wars Celebration convention, which runs from April 16th to 19th, and Age of Ultron’s international release starts rolling out on April 22nd, so the question is when Disney »

Video Games That Should Be Movies

22 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Annoyed by the poor quality of existing video game movies, we decided to take the matter into our own hands and come up with our own ideas. This is a list of what we came up with.

Earlier this month, we showed you that there are a lot of video game-based movies on their way to theaters. This surely will become a trend that will continue for the next few years. There are countless properties available to use as inspiration, and therefore, it's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to make a great video game movie. Until that time comes, we have to wait patiently. In order to occupy our minds, we asked our contributors to pick a video game that they think would make a great movie and then to create a pitch for that movie. The below list is what we came up with. »
