The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

4 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

A Comedian Restored A Michael Keaton Batmobile, And It.s Gorgeous

5 April 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Comedian Jeff Dunham has gained a significant fan following thanks to his work as a ventriloquist, entertaining audiences with a variety of characters that sit on his arm. What you may not know, however, is that he's also a rather avid car collector, and arguably the jewel of his collection is the actual Batmobile from Tim Burton's 1992 hit Batman Returns that he wound up building on to and making even more awesome than it was originally. The Wall Street Journal has published a piece about Duhham's special vehicle titled "How a Joker Revived a Batmobile," and it reveals some amazing custom work that the comedian did on the Batman Returns Batmobile since purchasing it back in 2011 (you can see a image on the article page). While he didn't mention how much the amazing movie prop actually cost him, he notes that he has done about half-a-million dollars worth of »

Watch: ‘SNL’ Cast Begs Michael Keaton to Reprise Batman, Beetlejuice

5 April 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Keaton may have been recently nominated for an Oscar for his critically acclaimed turn in “Birdman,” but it should be little surprise that his two truly most iconic characters — Batman and Beetlejuice — were mentioned right away when Keaton returned to “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.

In Keaton’s first “SNL” hosting gig in more than two decades, castmembers Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan crashed his opening monologue, and went into full fanboy mode as they asked Keaton a favor.

“Will you play Batman with us, Michael Keaton?” the two comedians sing. “Come on put the suit, we’ll be the villains that you’ve beaten!”

Keaton doesn’t particularly like the idea at first, but Killam and Moynihan are persistent. The bit even includes a bit of badly edited video, which superimposes the Batman and Beetlejuice costumes onto backstage footage of Keaton as Killam and Moynihan play supporting characters from the movies, »

Watch The SNL Cast Hysterically Beg Michael Keaton To Reprise Batman And Beetlejuice

5 April 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } Last night Michael Keaton returned to Saturday Night Live after not having hosted for over two decades. As many of us were expecting the highly-respected actor reprised two of his most iconic big screen characters, Batman and Beetlejuice, after being begged by a few SNL fanboy cast members . although it didn't go quite as you may think. As you can see in Michael Keaton's opening monologue above, the actor appeared pretty thrilled to be back on the stage he first graced back in 1982, then again in 1992, the latter following the release of his film Batman Returns. That said, it took less than a minute for Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan to squeeze in on each side of him and break into song, in an attempt to get the Birdman actor to reprise his roles as Batman and Beetlejuice. While the songs weren't necessarily all that »

What movie, TV show or music did your parents ban from you as a kid?

25 March 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Raunchy comedies. Scary movies. Songs with explicit lyrics. Space, the final frontier. When we're kids, we're frequently banned from checking out films, TV, music or other entertainment before we're "ready." Whatever that means. At HitFix, we discovered there's a range of what was banned in our households when we were children. Some folks like lucky-duck Gregory Ellwood had no bans at all. Some bans didn't hold. Some bans were so intense, they blanketed all corners of media. Below are some of our staffers sounding off on what wasn't allowed in their household. Share with us in the comments what stuff you couldn't watch or hear. Chris Eggertsen - "Married...With Children" "Married...With Children" was like the Devil in our house, and here's the kicker: I'm almost positive my mother never watched it before banning it. It was enough that a random Christian woman living halfway across the country whom »

The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons wants to play Batman villain The Riddler

18 March 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jim Parsons has revealed that he would like to play The Riddler in a future movie.

The Big Bang Theory actor told MTV that he would be up for playing the DC villain opposite Ben Affleck as Batman.

"I would love to play a superhero in a movie - I would like it to be a villain," he said.

"I would like to play The Riddler. I don't feel they're using The Riddler very much, are they?"

When told that he would be "dope" in the role, he added: "You hear that? I would be dope as The Riddler. Girls, tell your friends."

Jim Carrey last portrayed The Riddler on the big screen in 1995's Batman Returns, while Cory Michael Smith currently plays him in the TV series Gotham.

Parsons will star in the upcoming DreamWorks film Home opposite Rihanna and Steve Martin, which is released on Friday (March 20).

The Dark Knight Tops Empire's Greatest Superhero Movies List

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Though technically it doesn't actually feature any super-powered characters, many consider Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight to be the best superhero/comic book movie ever made, and Empire's most recent list of the 30 greatest cape-flicks would seem to confirm as much. The fact that the 2008 Batman epic came in at #1 on their publicly voted poll is a testament to how highly it's still regarded. Apparently it won by a fairly wide margin, but chasing it for the top spot at #2 was Bryan Singer's X-Men 2/X2, followed by Superman II at #3, Marvel's The Avengers at #4 and the first Superman at #5. Some of the rest of the movies in the top 10 are bound to stir up plenty of debate! We have Spider-Man 2 at #6, Batman Returns at #7, Unbreakable at #8, Watchmen at #9, and one of the most recent on the list, Guardians of the »

Film Review: ‘Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau’

24 February 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the all-time greatest cinematic train wrecks is given blow-by-blow chronicling in “Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau.” The creation of the H.G. Wells’ story’s third official screen incarnation was beset by disasters even more bizarre than the delirious mess of a feature finally released in 1996, with stars Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer reportedly rivaling even Mother Nature as destructive on-set forces. Though not so imaginatively packaged as another recent unmaking-of docu, “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” David Gregory’s pic can hardly help but fascinate with its mix of archival materials and surviving-collaborator testimonies. A hit at genre fests, the pic should do well in specialized cable sales and home formats.

Writer-helmer Stanley was an Aussie horror/sci-fi prodigy who’d attracted favorable fan notice with modestly budgeted thrillers “Hardware” (1990) and “Dust Devil” (1992). A fan of Wells’ tale since childhood, he was »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Holding Out For a Heroine: On Being a Woman and Loving Star Wars

19 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a little girl in possession of a good imagination must be in want of a heroine. At least, this was the truth of my childhood. Like many people of my generation, my early pop culture intake was a healthy mix of Disney (this included an extensive library of worn-out VHS in the classic white plastic clamshell packaging), Saturday morning cartoons (from DuckTales to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Japanese imports repackaged for North American kids (Power Rangers, Speed Racer). But my one true love was science fiction. And anyone familiar with my work on this website could probably guess that this love begins and ends with Star Wars. Or really, it begins with Princess Leia.

I don’t remember my first viewing of the original trilogy; it exists in my memory as a constant presence. And like any healthy child weaned on TV and movies, »

Arrow: Doug Jones to play villainous metahuman Deathbolt

19 February 2015 12:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Oliver Queen is about to face his first bona fide metahuman villain in the shape of Doug Jones’ Deathbolt…

It was only a matter of time, we suppose, until the superpowered metahuman mayhem of The Flash started seeping into Arrow. Central City and Starling aren’t that far apart, after all. Although some would argue there was something a little super about Arrow’s version of Solomon Grundy in season 2, the show’s first iron-clad metahuman baddie will come in the shape of Doug Jones’ Deathbolt.

Deathbolt is the supervillain persona of Jake Simmons, who has been knocking about the comic book universe since 1983. Now, he’s been mildly reimagined as a metahuman with ‘the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy.’ He will pop up soon in season 3 episode 19, titled Broken Arrow.

Although it’s not confirmed that the Central City particle accelerator explosion will be the cause of Deathbolt’s powers, »

Doug Jones cast as Deathbolt in Arrow

18 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Oliver Queen’s skills are going to be put to the test by his first super-powered villain this season, with IGN reporting that Doug Jones is set to appear in Arrow as Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt.

Making his debut in 1983 in All-Star Squadron #21, Deathbolt was the result of an experiment by the Ultra-Humanite, which left him with several metahuman abilities, including the power to absorb and manipulate electricity.

Jones has previously comic book experience, having played Abe Sapien in Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy movies, as well as the Silver Surfer in Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He also appeared as ‘Thin Clown’ in 1992’s Batman Returns.

9 female movie characters who upstaged male heroes, from Speed to Skyfall

7 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The nominations of both Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) established a trend in this year's selection of Best Actress at the Oscars.

Both roles initially seem secondary to the male hero in their respective films (Ben Affleck's Nick in the former, Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking in the latter), but gradually come to take over the story in their own right. Here's our pick of nine further films where a heroine usurps her male counterpart.

M, Skyfall

Women usually get a raw deal in Bond films, so much so that the leads are dismissively referred to as 'Bond girls'. But the casting of Judi Dench as M from 1995's GoldenEye onwards went some way to redressing the gender balance - and by her final outing in Skyfall, she had almost become the protagonist in her own right.

Remembering Actress Simon Part 2 - Deadly Sex Kitten Romanced Real-Life James Bond 'Inspiration'

5 February 2015 7:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine' 1938: Jean Renoir's film noir (photo: Jean Gabin and Simone Simon in 'La Bête Humaine') (See previous post: "'Cat People' 1942 Actress Simone Simon Remembered.") In the late 1930s, with her Hollywood career stalled while facing competition at 20th Century-Fox from another French import, Annabella (later Tyrone Power's wife), Simone Simon returned to France. Once there, she reestablished herself as an actress to be reckoned with in Jean Renoir's La Bête Humaine. An updated version of Émile Zola's 1890 novel, La Bête Humaine is enveloped in a dark, brooding atmosphere not uncommon in pre-World War II French films. Known for their "poetic realism," examples from that era include Renoir's own The Lower Depths (1936), Julien Duvivier's La Belle Équipe (1936) and Pépé le Moko (1937), and particularly Marcel Carné's Port of Shadows (1938) and Daybreak (1939).[11] This thematic and »

10 Awesome Fan Theories That Would Improve The Batman Films

3 February 2015 6:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Batman was actually first given the “film” treatment as far back as the 1940s. 1943 and 1949 both saw 15-chapter film serials released starring the Dark Knight and then, in 1966, Adam West reprised his role from the joyfully camp television series for the first theatrically released Batmovie. Popular as it was, it would then be more than twenty years before another was released.

1989 brought the first of Tim Burton’s two Batman movies – and the first of those that most people are familiar with today. Batman Returns followed it in 1992, with Joel Schumacher taking over directorial duties in 1995’s Batman Forever and 1997’s Batman and Robin. Eight years later Batman Begins, the first of Christopher Nolan’s brilliant The Dark Knight Trilogy, was released, with The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises following in 2008 and 2012 respectively.

All of those films have fairly definitive conclusions, but fans like to »
