Henry Cavill Says No Superman In Suicide Squad, But Could We See Him In A Potential Sequel?

23 August 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

"Oh, I'm not gonna kill ya, I'm just gonna hurt ya... really, really, bad!" Thanks to a variety of set photos and unconfirmed reports, it should be common knowledge by now that Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting) will make at least some sort of cameo as Bruce Wayne/Batman in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, whether that cameo is limited to flashbacks or extends to present day is yet-to-be seen. Outside of being a cool move, Affleck's cameo is also the first confirmed link between Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad, which are both set to open up the long-awaited DC Extended Cinematic Universe next year. Now, with Batman involved, it's natural to start wondering about whether or not Superman will be involved as well. In a recent interview with Metro.co.uk, star Henry Cavill (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) was asked about whether or not »

Batman V. Superman Star Henry Cavill Comments On Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman

21 August 2015 9:06 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice will see DC Comics' long-awaited extended cinematic universe finally come to life when the trinity of Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman finally come face-to-face on the big screen, which should be a glorious moment for fans everywhere. After 2013's Man Of Steel, most should already know what they'll be getting when Henry Cavill's Clark Kent returns to the big screen and based on the extensive coverage centered around the new Caped Crusader, played by Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting), most should also have a pretty good idea about what kind of Bruce Wayne we'll see come March. But what about the eagerly anticipated debut of Wonder Woman, portrayed by Gal Gadot (Knight and Day; Fast Five)? Well, for now, the jury's still out on that one, but if the trailer is anything to go by, it sure seems like no matter the characterization, »

Hulu Has Ordered a Seth Rogen Comedy Pilot Called Future Man

20 August 2015 9:44 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hulu has called dibs on a half-hour sci-fi comedy pilot coming from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter writes. Titled Future Man, the show, according to the trade, would involve a janitor who moonlights as a world-ranked video-gamer "tasked with preventing the extinction of humans after mysterious visitors from the future declare him to be the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion" — so, imagine Pixels and Good Will Hunting came together and had a baby for a streaming service. Interesting. Deadline adds that the pilot was originally constructed as a feature script a few years ago, but was tweaked after further consideration. Rogen and Goldberg will produce and direct the project, which was written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir (The Interview, This Is the End). »

Ben Affleck Birthday Curse Broken

15 August 2015 8:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Boston Red Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Aug. 15, 1997. It was an unremarkable game in an unremarkable season. They haven’t won on that date, which also happens to be Ben Affleck’s birthday, since — that’s an 0-15 record.  How long ago was 1997? Bill Clinton was still president. Good Will Hunting — Affleck and Matt Damon's breakout hit that earned them a screenwriting Oscar — was still four months away from release. Red Sox Hall-of-Famer-to-be David Ortiz wouldn't make his Major League debut for another 18 days (and for Minnesota).

Robin Williams: Look Back at His Life, Legacy and Career on the 1-Year Anniversary of His Tragic Death

11 August 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's hard to believe it's been a year without Robin Williams. On Aug. 11, 2014, the beloved Oscar winner took his own life at the age of 63, leaving behind his family, friends and an incredible body of both comedic and dramatic work. His sudden, tragic death was met with an outpouring of grief, and fan memorials for the Good Will Hunting star popped up all over the world. One of the most memorable tributes, perhaps, was delivered by Billy Crystal, Williams' longtime friend and frequent collaborator, at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. "He made us laugh, hard, any time you saw him," Crystal said. "As genius as he was onstage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine—supportive, »

One Year Later, I Still Miss Robin Williams

11 August 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It was August 11, 2014. The theater was full with an advance screening of The Giver starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. The red carpet event was live-streamed prior to the showing as stars from the film flooded in and entered the New York City party while we, in Knoxville, Tenn., gazed at the screen.

I checked my phone for the time and came across a message on the screen.

“Actor Robin Williams found dead at his home. He was 63.”

A friend put it best when he said that hearing the news of Williams’s passing surprised him with grief.

It did the same for me.

Now, to this point, Robin Williams was just another face (or voice) on the screen to me. An actor who had given life to Genie in Aladdin, the main character of Flubber, and was Mrs. Doubtfire. Nothing of note, but fun most of the time.

Today is a bittersweet day. It would have been funnyman Robin Williams' 64th birthday, and to honor that day we're taking a look back at his life in photos.
