Despite riding of wave of fan boy backlash comparable to taking Superman's red pants away, the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was released last year, racking up an impressive $485 million at the world wide box office. Sure, it had its fair share of story problems, especially the fact that William Ficthner was clearly hired to play The Shredder only to be pushed into the secondary bad guy role, but it wasn't the childhood ruining, CGI mess it was prophesied to be. and considering it's box office haul, I get the feeling no body was surprised when Paramount Pictures and Nikelodeon Films announced the sequel would be coming next year. Set for release on June 3rd 2016, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to begin filming next month in New York City and Buffalo, with Earth to Echo's David Green replacing Jonathan Liebesman as director.

Take another look @ Japanese actress Tao Okamoto as 'Mercy Graves', the personal bodyguard of 'Lex Luthor' on the set of director Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel sequel "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice":
The character Mercy Graves debuted in "Superman: The Animated Series" (1996).
Originally the leader of a gang of female thieves...
...Luthor was impressed by her mixture of ruthlessness and street savvy.
He offered her a job, taking her in and entrusting her...
...with his personal security and 'dirty work'.
A proficient martial artist, Mercy uses a rough, street-form of kickboxing as her preferred form of attack.
She is also an expert with most forms of handheld weapons

At its best, comics is like a family, where people in the field are known by their first names by fans and peers alike. Jerry, Joe (well, several Joes, actually, but context always makes it clear which one), Will, Bob, Bill, Stan, Jack, Steve, Marie, Carmine, Len, Marv, Flo.
Irwin Hasen was my friend, just as he was a lot of people’s friend. Of course, millions of people knew Irwin through his comics (Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Wildcat, the Fox, and, of course, Dondi). But because he had no children and no local relatives, Irwin’s friends and companions were his cartooning contemporaries, the cartoonists he mentored, and a steady stream of admirers, thirty to fifty years his junior, who crossed his path in various ways. Some were fans, some fellow comics pros. Some were descendants of his contemporaries, seeking information about and connection with their parents or grandparents through Irwin, »

We may have met “the twins” in Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s post-credits bit, but we won’t find out how they fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe until Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is approaching, well, as fast as Quicksilver. Yes, he’s the showstopper from X-Men: Days of Future Past, but don’t get confused - the Quicksilver in the Avengers sequel is a completely different take bearing the same name (just like how multiple actors have played Superman, but not the same version of Superman). We’ll also get Scarlet Witch, an Avengers mainstay who has been the centerpiece of some of the biggest comic book storylines of all time. Who created the twins and when was their first appearance? Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created...

Fair warning: this one is long and a bit sappy. I would, however consider it a personal favor if you would give it a read and send me a hug.
I need one.
Ok, another version of this article will be appearing on Bleeding Cool but this is the Mike Gold special edition, chock full of what’s not in the BC article.
A week or so ago I was writing the fuck you article to beat all fuck you articles. You would think with the year I’m having, I’d be ranting away all the time but somehow that’s not been my aspiration. Nope. Some how I’ve avoided ranting anywhere but on Facebook. I don’t have a lot of Facebook friends as I choose to police my page like Ferguson P.D. so anyone I don’t know, I shoot down their friend request like a unarmed black kid. »

The phrase “No. 1 with a bullet” takes on a whole new connotation during this week’s Empire — thanks in part to a shifty dude named Reg, the Artist Formerly Known as Olivia from The Cosby Show and a confession that really could use an epilogue featuring Maury Povich and a DNA test kit.

Production started last week on the new CBS series Supergirl, with the network releasing the first official photos on Friday featuring star Melissa Benoist in her full Supergirl costume. Today, The Live Feed reports that Malina Weissman has been cast as a young Kara Zor-El. The actress will guest star in the pilot episode, confirming speculation that the DC Comics series will flash back to her childhood years. She most recently appeared on the big screen as a younger version of Megan Fox's April O'Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
What isn't known at this time is if the young Kara will be on Earth or on her home planet of Krypton. Kara was born on Krypton but was sent to Earth before her home planet was destroyed. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by her foster family the Danvers, who taught her to be cautious of using her incredible Kryptonian abilities. »
After news of Helen Slater (the original Supergirl) and Dean Cain’s (The New Adventures of Lois and Clark) involvement in the new CBS show Supergirl, as well as last week’s official reveal of Melissa Benoist (Whiplash) in her Supergirl costume, word has broke about who will play Kara Zor-El in her formative years.
Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. Benoist will portray Kara from around the age of 24, while Weissman will presumably be seen in flashbacks exploring the character’s early years. »

Melissa Benoist plays a 24-year-old Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers.
Weissman is expected to appear in flashbacks to the character's early years as a child. Weissman certainly has experience in this kind of role, playing the younger version of Megan Fox's April O'Neil in last year's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot.

The actress who played a younger version of April O'Neil (Megan Fox) in last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has now joined the cast of Supergirl as Kara Zor-El. Melissa Benoist is obviously playing the current day take on the character in the TV show, so this means we will likely revisit Kara's early days when she arrived on Earth and started to discover her powers. Supergirl focuses on Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. She joins Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen), Calista Flockhart (Cat Grant), Chyler Leigh (Alexandra “Alex” Danvers), David Harewood (Hank Henshaw), Faran Tahir (The Commander), Dean Cain and Helen Slater (both in unspecified roles).

When I first read the headlines, I swear I could hear the high-pitched tear of a needle being dragged across a vinyl record. After posting a few pieces of concept art, 20th Century Fox gave the go-ahead to Neill Blomkamp to take the reigns of their wounded Alien franchise. The one that has been so poorly manhandled that they couldn’t even make a decent movie out the back story with Ridley Scott at the helm, and couldn’t mine one moment of fun from crossing over the classic Xenomorphs with the Predator franchise. I mean, seriously. Even the terrible Freddy vs. Jason had a few fun moments.
The Alien franchise has been drifting aimlessly since James Cameron delivered the universally loved Aliens nearly 30 years ago. Since then, Alien fans have been perpetually disappointed by the series. »

Aquaman finally gets his due in Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, out now from Warner Home Entertainment. In the latest installment in the new linked video continuity, all inspired by the uninspiring New 52 reality. As is fitting in a spotlight film like this, Aquaman’s origins are explored so we also get the tried and true enmity between Arthur Curry and Orm, the Ocean Master. There’s lots of shouting, fighting, fish, and Sturm und Drang but honestly, not a lot of warmth and emotion—much like the current source material.
Queen Atlanna (Sirena Irwin) rules over forgotten Atlantis which is about to be proven a real legend as it braces for war. The undersea kingdom is discovered when Cyborg (Sean Patrick Thomas) investigates a sub having gone missing. Upon discovering the existence of Atlantis, he summons the rest of the Justice League — Superman (Jerry O’Connell), Batman (Jason O »

Grant Morrison is a constant subject of my frustration when reading comic books. Although he’s hit with me more than he hasn’t, I never know what to expect from the writer as I venture into one of his tales. Sometimes they’re so overwrought with scientific mumbo-jumbo and challenging social commentary that it distracts me from the storyline too much. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case as I made my way through The Multiversity: Mastermen #1.

If you take a look at the top 100 all-time highest worldwide grossing movies, fifteen of them are either Marvel or DC comic adaptations. According to Box Office Mojo the third highest grossing film of all time is The Avengers (2012) at over a billion and a half dollars. Comics, it would seem, are major players in the world of entertainment.
Seventy-five years ago it was all very different. Comics were for children and were disregarded as both an entertainment medium and as an art form. Comics were disposable. Because of their ephemeral nature surviving early copies now trade hands for vast sums. »

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis didn’t just introduce the world to the New 52 version of Aquaman. It also gave us the first appearance of Superman’s Hammer of Justice, Steel. If you got up to use the restroom or checked your cell phone at the wrong time, you might have missed what could become a defining moment in the new DC Animated Universe.
In what amounted to under a minute of screen time, John Henry Irons wields a large hammer on what appears to be a construction site. Wearing a yellow hardhat, he defends his co-workers from an army of Atlantian attackers. Just as he is about to be overcome by his assailants, Superman swoops down and saves him. We are witnesses to the defining moment when the seeds of a new super hero are planted – Steel.

The upcoming Suicide Squad adaptation from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated blockbusters of the next few years. Not only will David Ayer (Fury) helm the large scale project, but the film also boasts an all-star cast consisting of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jared Leto.
However, this past week has seen the production hit a minor speed bump with the unexpected departure of Tom Hardy. It was initially assumed that Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) would replace the Dark Knight Rises star in the role of Rick Flag, however it has since been revealed that he declined the invitation. Now, two more potential candidates for the part of Flag have arisen, and they are certainly interesting choices!

Ever heard of second-tier DC superhero Fatman? Because he might be starring in the new Zack Snyder film.
Oooh, it’s just Ben Affleck with a ‘six pack’ (or ‘beer gut’) as Batman in the latest photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Speaking of that epic team-up film, we also have the thoughts of its fight choreographer (he reckons it’s the best movie ever) And George Lucas, the Star Wars daddio, finally gives his thoughts on Jj Abrams’ The Force Awakens.
Fmtv will be back next Friday with our that week’s edition of the Movie Newsgasm. Exciting. Subscribe here to be notified first when they are live and to impress your friends.
Here’s some more information on the film’s discussed…
