It has long been rumored that, at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans will be introduced to the full Justice League, with Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) coming together with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). While we'll likely have to wait until next March to find out if this is true or not, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Wonder Woman has a very important role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, teasing that she is the 'gateway drug" to the Justice League.
"She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she's the gateway drug to

Just like Jon Stewart, Larry Wilmore dedicated the opening segment of his show last night to Donald Trump's utterly disastrous week (when it came to everything but the polls). And while Trump repeatedly refused to apologize for his comments about Mexican "rapists," it took the unique skills of one CNN anchor to make what could be considered a breakthrough. »

Callin’ it like he sees it. After a few weeks of relative silence, Jon Stewart didn’t hold back with his comments on Thursday, July 2, about Donald Trump’s headline-making speech in June. The talk show host, who is set to give up his Daily Show seat later this year, kicked off the rant with a heartfelt thank you to the Republican presidential candidate. “I want to talk about one person who’s been there for me, really, throughout the whole run [of the show],” he deadpanned. “But especially [...] »
Many people have weighed in at great length on Donald Trump and his Mexican Rapists Candidacy Announcement, since the real-estate mogul delivered the headline-making speech in the gold-plated halls of Trump Towers a couple weeks ago. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart has not been one of them. His relative restraint in the days following the speech has surprised Stewart fans; it was as if raw meat has been thrown to a piranha and the fish had turned up its nose. This finally… »
Ever since Donald Trump announced he is running for president on June 16, the road to the White House has already been a bumpy ride. After Trump’s inflammatory remarks in which he said Mexican immigrants are “rapists” who are bringing “drugs” and crime” into the United States, the real estate mogul has been under heavy fire. He was blasted by Neil Young for using his song “Rockin’ in the Free World” without permission. He was the subject of Jon Stewart‘s ridicule on “The Daily Show.” The New York Daily News dressed him up like a clown on its cover. »

Trevor Noah has spoken out for the first time about taking over Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” from exiting host Jon Stewart. In a new episode of Crackle’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Noah told host Jerry Seinfeld how he found out he got the coveted job, and he explained how he discovered the power of comedy — when his grandfather told a joke to a police officer, allowing the young Noah to witness a white man and black man laughing together for the first time in his native South Africa. But the delicate political climate during his formative years meant. »

Incoming Daily Show host Trevor Noah was Jerry Seinfeld's passenger on the latest installment of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. During Wednesday night's episode, the comedian shared his first reaction to being offered Jon Stewart's hosting seat on The Daily Show, a job he never imagined he would be considered for. "I was like, 'Who's gonna get the job?' ... Jon announces he’s leaving — it throws everybody off. Because Jon does what no one seems to do and that’s leave when the time is right," Noah said, prompting Seinfeld to ask why Stewart didn't choose to stay for the upcoming

Paris– Less than three months after becoming Vivendi’s biggest shareholder, Vincent Bollore has already ruffled feathers in a major way. The billionaire businessman, who has claimed he wanted to shake up the editorial core of pay TV group Canal Plus, is reportedly considering pulling the plug on the pay TV group’s crown jewel: the cult satirical muppets show “Les Guignols de l’info.”
A rep for Canal Plus declined to comment.
Bollore’s project to terminate the 28-year old “Les Guignols de l’Info” leaked today on French blogs before getting picked up by every major newspaper’s website. The rumor immediately sparked waves of protests from local film and TV industryites, with Cannes film festival president and former Canal Plus boss Pierre Lescure among the high-profile voices that have expressed deep concern.
Lescure has indeed just announced that he resigned from the administration board of Havas, a subsid of Vivendi, »

“The decision on the part of Reelz to acquire the rights to the Miss USA Pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz, in a statement. “As one of only a few independent networks, »
Another presidential candidate just means more fresh meat for Jon Stewart, who has been having a field day with so many interesting personalities joining the race for the White House. And with 17 major candidates currently in the running, “there is already a whiff of desperation,” Stewart said. The “Daily Show” host’s latest target was New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who officially declared as a candidate this week. “Why, why, why?” the Comedy Central star asked on Wednesday night’s episode as he aired Christie’s laughable announcement speech.

Jon Stewart isn't giving New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a pass on why his constituents don't think he'd make a good president. On Wednesday night's Daily Show, Stewart cited a poll showing 65 percent of New Jersey residents weren't interested in the new presidential candidate moving into the White House. He then played a clip of Christie explaining the poll by saying it's because people want him to stay in New Jersey so bad that they can't bear to think of him moving away and becoming president. "That's the saddest thing I've ever heard," Stewart said in response. He

As Jon Stewart's tenure as host of The Daily Show comes to a close, the send-offs are just beginning. Tuesday night's guest, Jon Hamm, appeared to introduce a special tribute dedicated to one of Stewart's more underrated talents: his voice.
"Here's what I like about you," Stewart said to Hamm. "You're the only other person on TV who spells 'Jon' correctly."
While liberals got the news they were hoping for out of the nation’s top court last week — Obamacare holding up and gay marriage being made the law of the land — those on the right now have something to celebrate too, and Jon Stewart was happy to cheer alongside them Tuesday. “The Daily Show” host just wasn’t sure what everyone on Fox News was so damn pleased about. “Did they declare Reagan on all of our currency?” Stewart wondered aloud at his own setup. “Can eagles drive now?” Also Read: Bill O'Reilly Strikes Back at Jon Stewart: 'I Still Can't Figure Out. »

Bill O’Reilly is worried about Jon Stewart and implored viewers Tuesday to be humane to the departing Daily Show host. “I still can’t figure out why they fired the guy, it’s just not fair–I mean, he’s been on the air for 16 years,” the Fox News host spoofed (For the record-Stewart wasn’t fired). O’Reilly then doled out a backhanded promotion for Stewart, telling viewers they can watch Daily Show re-runs online for the next few weeks.

Jon Stewart is on a triumphant last lap at The Daily Show, relishing the gift of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, excoriating the disparity between America’s war on terror and its response to domestic terrorism in Charleston, and dissecting the hypocrisy of Fox News till the end.
Eight thousand miles from Stewart’s New York studio, his successor is limbering up in surroundings that would make Trump look classy. South African comedian Trevor Noah is playing to sell-out houses at Montecasino, a gaudy entertainment complex north of Johannesburg designed to look like Renaissance-era Tuscany complete with bell tower and piazza. Inside, gamblers play slot machines watched by fake pigeons amid fake Italian houses with fake balconies lining fake cobbled streets beneath a fake sky.

Jon Hamm was on "The Daily Show" last night to promote "Minions"-- you can see a clip from the movie in his interview video below -- and the "Mad Men" alum joked that he was going to get in so much trouble with Universal after his conversation with Jon Stewart.
The "Despicable Me" spinoff opens July 10, and Jon Stewart started by saying he hoped the movie was about a quorum of Jewish men and maybe they just misspelled "Minyan." But he said kids really love Minions, including his own kids, joking that they are 18 and 19 and smoke a lot of dope. More seriously, Stewart said not everything can capture his kids' attention like this, and the Jons discussed the universal appeal of the characters for both children and adults.

Jon Stewart called out Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for his hypocrisy on the same-sex marriage ruling, but still felt sorry for Scalia’s terrible Friday.
