After a big couple of weeks of Marvel news, DC fans got something to smile about this week as Zack Snyder delivered our first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (and of course the subsequent Justice League and 2018 solo movies). The promotional image came with the caption “Unite the Seven”, so could that mean we can look forward to another six promo shots of the rest of the Justice League? »

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, »
Hello again, dear readers. I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day weekend, and that a lot of you got out to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is totally awesome. This coming Sunday also brings us the 87th Academy Awards, during which I’ll be both hoping Michael Keaton wins Best Actor for Birdman, and cursing the Academy for not giving a Best Animated Feature nomination to The Lego Movie. But in this meantime, this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ is our first look at one of my most anticipated films of the fall, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
Premise: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, a young author is torn between the love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. »

Super-powered individuals may run rampant on the streets of Central City each week on The Flash, but Arrow exists in a more realistic, “grounded” corner of the DC TV universe. That may soon change, however, as IGN has learned that Oliver Queen will soon go up against his very first metahuman.
Doug Jones – perhaps known best for playing Hellboy‘s right-hand man and fellow demon fighter Abe Sapien – has joined the series as DC Comics supervillain Deathbolt. The character is the alter ego of Jake Simmons, who was first introduced in 1983 and has the power to manipulate electricity. On Arrow, he’ll be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy.
Oliver has faced off with super serum-enhanced individuals like Deathstroke and Cyrus Gold (the man who becomes Solomon Grundy) in the past, and even engaged in some fisticuffs with Barry Allen earlier this season, but this »

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.

The CW's hit series Arrow is bringing in yet another DC Comics villain, with actor Doug Jones (Hellboy) signing on to play Deathbolt in the 19th episode of Season 3, entitled "Broken Arrow". No details were given about how Deathbolt first comes to Starling City.
Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt, was created in 1983 by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway. first appearing in All-Star Squadron #21. This powerful villain has the ability to manipulate electricity, and was also given the nickname "The Human Battery" in the comics. His addition to Arrow is rather important, since he will be the first "metahuman" to appear in Starling City, aside from The Flash crossover episode. It isn't known if Simmons got his powers during the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion in Central City that gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and several others their powers on The Flash, or if another cause for his powers will be given. »
Jones' appearance will come in the current third season's nineteenth episode and will be entitled "Broken Arrow". In the show, the character will "be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy."
Meanwhile a new clip from tonight's episode has gone online and showcases the return of last year's key villain Deathstroke (Manu Bennett).

Though Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has appeared on Arrow, the titular Emerald Archer has yet to face off against an actual SUPERvillain over the course of the show's run. Well, that will change in the upcoming nineteenth episode (titled "Broken Arrow") when he takes on Deathbolt. This character -- real name is Jake Simmons -- was first introduced in All-Star Squadron #21 back in 1983, and had the power to manipulate electricity. According to IGN, in Arrow Simmons will "be a metahuman with the ability to harness and weaponize plasma energy." Deathbolt will be played by Doug Jones, who should be well known around these parts as a frequent collaborator of Guillermo del Toro's, on projects such as Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth and The Strain. He also starred in Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer as the cosmic Marvel hero of the title. »

Is it just me or does Guillermo Del Toro seem to be a man divided? I mean, I have nothing against Pacific Rim but personally it’s just not my thing. I could say I was disappointed by it but it wasn’t really my thing. Well, mainly it was the barely tolerable orgy of CGI that wasn’t my thing more than, you know, kaiju-punching giant robots because how could that not be your thing? But I think I speak on behalf of all horror fans that, after the entertaining but awkward Hellboy films, we were hoping for a return to the Del Toro of old, the The Orphanage and Pan’s Labyrinth mastermind who lured his unsuspecting prey into his films with dabs of gothic fantasy before swallowing them whole. It’s not that we can’t share him with non-horror fans; it’s just that we refuse. »

We’ve just taken hold of the very first trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming horror film Crimson Peak, which stars Tom Hiddleston opposite Charlie Hunnam, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Jim Beaver.

"There are parts of the house that are unsafe." We've been waiting patiently, and director Guillermo del Toro has finally delivered the teaser trailer for his latest horror project, Crimson Peak. In true teaser fashion, it doesn't show much, but it makes a bold claim that this is del Toro's ultimate masterpiece. It looks gorgeous and haunting, but there's clearly some visual effects that still need to be finished. It's hard to convey too much of the spookiness of a film like this without using cheap scares, and thankfully, del Toro doesn't go for that, and let's Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain shine. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak, originally from Apple: Crimson Peak is directed by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pacific Rim, The Devil's Backbone) from a script he co-wrote with Matthew Robbins (Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Mimic) and »
