Nathan Fillion Wants to Play This DC Comics Superhero

23 August 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While not nearly as big as San Diego Comic-Con, The Chicago Wizard World Comic Con does respectable enough business and is known for pulling in some stellar talent. The convention has continued on throughout the weekend, where some choice rumors have flown forth. Among the many celebrity guests were Arrow star Stephen Amell, Star Trek legend William Shatner, and Firefly captain Nathan Fillion, just to name a few. And while you'll be hearing some more interesting news coming forth in the hours and days ahead, as journalists pick through their short interviews for news worthy tidbits, one of the coolest moments came when Nathan Fillion revealed which DC Comics superhero he desperately wants to play. And it sounds like a perfect fit.

It seems like everyone in Hollywood is lobbying for a superhero gig nowadays. From Ronda Rousey pimping fan art of herself in Captain Marvel's iconic costume, to Tyrese Gibson »

The Rock Will Captain Disney's 'Jungle Cruise' Movie

19 August 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you didn't think Dwayne Johnson was attached to enough upcoming projects, then you're in luck because the action star is now signing on to bring Disney's languishing project Jungle Cruise back to life. Disney is bringing aboard filmmakers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra to craft the script. They recently wrote and directed the Will Smith and Margot Robbie con man drama Focus, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals they are not attached to direct.

Jungle Cruise was first set up by Disney way back in 2004, with Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar coming aboard to write the script in 2006. In 2011, Toy Story stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen were attached to star, with Roger S.H. Schulman writing the script. That was the last we heard of the project, until Dwayne Johnson came aboard today.

Jungle Cruise is one of Disneyland's original attractions, which takes visitors through African rivers »

Gotham: 8 Changes Needed To Save Season 2

14 August 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


The last time Warner Bros. tried a small screen superhero prequel, we all ended up waiting over a decade for Tom Welling to not bother wearing the Superman costume in the Smallville finale. That frustrating wait is sort of the point with Gotham though, as showrunner Bruno Heller has made it clear that the series ends the second Bruce Wayne dons the cape and cowl as Batman.

As Gotham’s Bruce is still a child, that’s obviously a long way off. So, instead of focusing solely on the youngster’s transformation into a Caped Crusader, the series puts the spotlight on the man who will one day be his greatest ally; Detective Jim Gordon. This is no simple police procedural though, with the early days of the men and women who will one day make up The Dark Knight’s rogues gallery are also explored. As a result of all these different elements, »

6 August 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Happy August, dear readers. We’re in the last month of the summer movie season, and the big releases are starting to taper off. But there are always big movies to look forward to, and this week’s Trailer Trashin’ brings you my thoughts on our first look at the second of next year’s DC Comics movies – David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Premise: A secret government agency run by high-ranking official Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) creates the “Suicide Squad,” a task force comprised of imprisoned supervillains. The squad is assigned to carry out dangerous missions in exchange for shorter prison sentences.

My take: No preamble this time, let’s just dive in.

4 August 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jonathan Taylor Thomas first hit the Hollywood scene in the early '90s, and he quickly became the king of magazine pinups as one of the most popular teen heartthrobs.

5 Reasons Why Superman Should Beat Batman in Dawn of Justice

2 August 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With trailers now in theaters and the 2016 release date slowly inching closer, speculation is growing about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Most people assume—probably correctly—that Batman will leave the Man of Steel lying in defeat. Batman’s popularity is such that bat-fans would riot if the Dark Knight should lose. However, the fact is…Batman Should lose, and here are five good reasons why.

Batman is the most popular super hero in the world. That’s hard to dispute. Starting with the success of the Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel, continuing through the staggeringly popular Nolan/Bale films, Batman is the king of comic characters.  The fervor people have for this character is such that fans consider him unbeatable given the proper prep-time. That will probably affect the script of the Batman v Superman film, and Superman will end up flat on his back. »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »

Mercy Graves Revealed In "Batman v Superman"

27 July 2015 8:20 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been rumored and was suggested in the trailer, but now it's confirmed - Tao Okamoto will be playing Mercy Graves in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

A character originally created for "Superman: The Animated Series," Mercy serves as Lex Luthor's lethal bodyguard and personal assistant. Lisa Edelstein voiced the character in the animated series, whilst Cassidy Freeman's "Smallville" character Tess Mercer was heavily influenced by the role.

Warner Bros. Pictures originally claimed that "Hannibal" and "The Wolverine" star Okamoto would be playing a character created specifically for the film, but this week’s episode of DC All Access confirms Okamoto's true role.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is currently slated to hit cinemas on March 25th. »

5 Things To Make Aquaman Awesome on the Big Screen

26 July 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Aquaman finally coming to the big screen, a mere 75 years after his comic debut, DC now has to make the Atlantean hero interesting and entertaining to casual fans, as well as comic readers.  They have a lot of damage to undo since Aquaman’s image has suffered over the years. Here are 5 ways that Zack Snyder and Jason Momoa can make the King of the Seas cool again.

Aquaman, Aka Arthur Curry, was created in More Fun Comics #73 in 1941. Since then, he’s been seen in several animated series, most notably the Filmation studios  Superman/Aquaman Adventure Hour in 1967, and the Super Friends (1973-82). He’s also appeared in live-action form in Smallville, and the pilot film for a TV series, Aquaman: Mercy Reef, starring Justin Hartley. Now he’s making his way to the big-screen.

What most non-comic readers remember about Aquaman is that he’s a »

Melissa Benoist Feels a Responsibility to 'Stay True' to 'Supergirl'

17 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It runs in the family: she's faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound just like her famous Kryptionian cousin. But as both a superheroine and as a young woman still coming into her own, "Supergirl" has a lot to learn about the world.

For the new CBS series debuting in the fall, actress Melissa Benoist ("Glee," "Whiplash") takes on the iconic mantle of the Ingenue of Steel and her alter ego Kara Danvers, and during her first trip to Comic-Con International in San Diego she revealed all sorts of Super-details, from learning to throw a punch during her super-workout to dancing through the sky to a particularly constraining portion of that caped costume.
