Guardians Of The Galaxy And Cinema’s Most Memorable Misfit Families

28 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is garnering widespread, positive reviews ahead of its release at the end of this week, with one of its foremost qualities being lauded by critics is the rapport and camaraderie amongst this rag-tag bunch of misfits and outcasts.

Of course part of the appeal of Vol. 1 was the organic and believable way in which this crew was put together, uniting despite their differences, but maintaining character integrity along the way. It has resulted in this family of Guardians joining a long-running tradition of cinematic misfit crews, thrown together (often by adversity) but continuing to niggle and aggravate each other. So who are the other groups in this pantheon?

The Guardians of the Galaxy

They were very much not the first to this particular party, but have done it about as well as anyone. The way in which the first film not only threw them together, »

Nathan Fillion’s Suave Charmer Sterling Rolls Out Of The Showroom In New Pic For Cars 3

24 April 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From Castle to Slither, Serenity to Firefly, few actors are held in such high regard as Nathan Fillion. For the legions of Browncoats out there, Fillion will forever be known as Malcolm Reynolds, the swashbuckling pilot who captured our imagination throughout Joss Whedon’s aforementioned sci-fi series before it was unceremoniously pulled off the airwaves more than a decade ago.

The actor has remained a fixture on screens big and small ever since though, and fans of all things Pixar will soon be able to see – or rather hear – Fillion in Brian Fee’s animated threequel, Cars 3. Per Entertainment Weekly, we now know his character to be Sterling, a “suave chief executive coupe who becomes the new sponsor of once-glorious racer Lightning McQueen.” EW’s reveal was accompanied by our first look at Sterling in action, who can be seen imparting wisdom and advice to Owen Wilson’s down-on-his-luck stock car. »

A-List TV Titans' Best & Worst: Every Joss Whedon Series Ranked

24 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In your life of channel-surfing, you’ve probably read a million TV listicles ranking the best and worst programs of the year, the decade, all-time. So have your friends at TVLine. (Bored now.) That’s why we’ve decided to flip the script and put a fresh — some might even say dark — spin on the convention by pitting the small screen’s most influential uber producers against, in essence, themselves, weighing Shonda Rhimes’ series strictly against one another, Greg Berlanti’s series strictly against one another, and so on.

James Gunn debunks Nathan Fillion Guardians 2 deleted scene

21 April 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Certain actors have such a loving fan base they could leap into a volcano only to be followed by a parade of Twitter followers and stalkers. Nathan Fillion of Firefly and Castle fame is one of those actors, and needless to say fans went bonkers when he posted a picture of himself on the set of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, in full costume, hinting at a scene of his that was unfortunatley cut.  Sadly,...

14 April 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A little bit of serenity is coming to Blindspot.

Alan Tudyk Reveals An Inspired 'Rogue One' Cameo We Never Got To See

6 April 2017 6:10 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Rogue One is the kind of movie that's peppered with enough Easter eggs, callbacks and cameos that fans will still be examining its every frame years from now. But there's one very clever, very niche cameo that was filmed that we sadly never got to see and, as Gareth Edwards told Fandango, we'll likely never see. It's one that pretty much only superfans of Alan Tudyk's would have ever possibly noticed. Tudyk of course voiced the delightfully mirthless security droid K-2So, but that wasn't going to be his only role in the movie. But before we get to that, we have to explain another one of Tudyk's roles. On the webseries Con Man, the Firefly actor plays a struggling actor named Wray Nerely whose career never really took off after his beloved sci-fi show...

Check Out Alan Tudyk Perform His Many Disney Voices

3 April 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To me Alan Tudyk will always be the pirate guy from the movie Dodgeball but I know that’s kind of insulting to his career.  Tudyk’s appeared in numerous television shows and movies over his career but what can I say?  I loved him in Dodgeball.   Most people know Tudyk from his days on Firefly but most recently he was in Star Wars: Rogue One as K2-so.  P.S. I liked him in Arrested Development as Pastor Veal and in Knocked Up as the show executive who says “tighten.” What people don’t often know about Tudyk is the myriad of voices he

Why Hiring Joss Whedon For Batgirl Could Help Save The DC Universe!

1 April 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Life is tough right now for DC. The first three DC Extended Universe movies were critically panned, movies with characters like Batman can't crack $1 billion at the box office, and projects are falling apart left and right as directors and writers drop out, delaying them until who knows when.  The Flash has lost several directors, Aquaman was recently delayed, and films that should be priorities like The Batman and Man of Steel 2 don't even have release dates. Several of the Justice League solo-films on DC's slate may have release dates, but not directors or writers! 

And yet, DC keeps announcing new projects that seem like long-shots at this point, especially if they can't even get The Flash off the ground. We've heard about not only a Shazam movie, but also a spin-off for Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam. In addition to no brainers like Suicide Squad 2, DC has made »

Batgirl: who is she, & where will she fit in the Dceu?

30 March 2017 1:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Apr 5, 2017

Batgirl is the latest DC hero to be touted for a solo movie, with Joss Whedon at the helm. But who is Batgirl? Let's take a look...

Holy déjà vu, Batman! Only last week I was writing about the announcement that a new member of the Bat-family has been given their own movie among Warner Bros’ already-jam-packed DC Extended Universe slate. Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing, was the chap under discussion then. 

Last week, on top of that, the news broke that Joss Whedon is writing, directing and producing a Batgirl movie as part of the Dceu. Warners is clearly serious about expanding out from Ben Affleck’s Batman to tell other stories about cowl-loving caped crusaders.  

Here’s everything you need to know about Batgirl, mixed with some possibly-useless fan speculation about casting, villains and more...

[Updated] Joss Whedon Enters The Dceu to Write, Produce, And Direct Batgirl

30 March 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update: Since this initial report from Variety, EW has come out and shared some rumors from their sources regarding what to expect from this version of Batgirl. According to the outlet, they'll be using the New 52 version of the character as a starting point. Here's the quote:

"Sources tell EW that this version will be Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon, and the movie will use the DC Comics “New 52” version of the character as a starting point."It’s unclear how much of that series, written by Gail Simone, will be incorporated into Whedon’s film, but sources tell EW the movie will follow Simone’s harder-edged storyline rather than the more comical, playful 'Batgirl of Burnside' series that was rebooted in 2014, featuring the hero as a social-media obsessed student living in a hipster neighborhood of Gotham."

Joss Whedon to Helm Batgirl Movie!

30 March 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

The news broke today that Joss Whedon (Buffy, Firefly) will be directing a Batgirl solo film! The movie, which is still in the infant stages of development and planning, will be a part of the newer DC Extended Universe.

Related: Affleck Hints That 'The Batman' Movie Could Face Delay

There has only ever been one Batgirl appearance on the big screen and that was in the ill-fated Joel Schumacher debacle, "Batman & Robin" back in 1997. The idea behind this film is to follow the lead of "Suicide Squad" and "Wonder Woman" by making a strong and clear vision of Barbara Gordon that can interact with the new cinematic universe, possibly in the upcoming "Gotham City Sirens" film, which is a sequel to "Suicide Squad".

No release date or casting details have been revealed. Stay tuned to Legions of Gotham for the latest on "Batgirl".

Joss Whedon May Direct Batgirl Standalone Film

30 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“Batgirl”: DC Comics

Joss Whedon is bringing another heroine to the screen. The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator is “nearing a deal” to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl film for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe, Variety reports. Whedon previously helmed 2012’s “The Avengers” and its 2015 sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” for DC Comics competitor Marvel.

Despite being one of the world’s most well-known and popular superheroines, this will be the first film to center on the fan favorite character, who “first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in ‘The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!’ Variety writes.

The project, which currently has no other producers attached, “originated in the past month.” So, it seems like things are moving quickly, thankfully — female-led films about caped crusaders are long overdue.

Two months before DC (finally!) announced a “Wonder Woman” movie and Marvel responded with a “Captain Marvel” adventure, Whedon was asked about the dearth of superheroines on the big screen. The “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” co-creator was admirably blunt in his response: “It’s a phenomenon in the industry that we call ‘stupid people.’” He continued, “There is genuine, recalcitrant, intractable sexism, and old-fashioned, quiet misogyny that goes on.” “There’s always an excuse,” he explained. “You hear ‘Oh, [female superheroes] don’t work because of these two bad ones [‘Catwoman’ and ‘Elektra’] that were made eight years ago.’”

While we’ll always rally for women directors to get the high-profile, big-budget gigs they are so often passed over for — especially if the gig in question centers on a superheroine — Whedon has spent his career depicting nuanced and empowering female characters. He famously conceived “Buffy” after watching “a lot of horror movies that starred pretty blonde girls who walk into alleys and get killed”; Buffy would be a girl who “could walk through an alley and take care of herself.” If a man is going to direct the Batgirl film, we’re thrilled it’s Whedon, who has never shied away from celebrating the strength of women and calling out sexism.

Whedon’s “Avengers” movies are the two highest-grossing Marvel Cinematic Universe projects of all-time. Combined, they’ve made over $2.9 billion worldwide. His work on the small screen includes creating “Dollhouse,” “Firefly,” and “Angel.”

DC’s “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot as the Amazonian warrior, hits theaters June 2. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins (“Monster”). “Suicide Squad” actress Margot Robbie will topline DC’s “Gotham City Sirens,” which centers on famous female villains from the DC universe including Robbie’s Harley Quinn. No word on when to expect the David Ayer-directed project. Marvel’s “Captain Marvel,” led by Oscar winner Brie Larson, is scheduled for release March 8, 2019, but a director hasn’t been announced yet. Based on a shortlist that became public last summer, it seems that a female director is being sought to tell Carol Danvers’ story.

Joss Whedon May Direct Batgirl Standalone Film was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Joss Whedon to direct Batgirl solo film

30 March 2017 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It appears Warner Bros. is ready to expand the Dceu – the Batman side of it, at least – even more as Variety has reported that the studio is finalizing a deal for The Avengers director Joss Whedon to write, direct and produce a Batgirl spin-off film.

Batgirl seems to have originated in the studio the past month as plans post-Justice League have grown. Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, has joined Jon Berg and Geoff Johns to oversee the film.

Batgirl is one of DC’s most popular female superheroes. The daughter of police commissioner Jim Gordon, Barbara Gordon joined Batman in his fight against crime in Gotham City. At one point in her career she was shot and paralyzed by The Joker, though this didn’t stop her from fighting crime as she became Oracle, the computer and tech wizard of the Justice League. »

Joss Whedon set to write and direct Batgirl movie

30 March 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Well, this is a bit exciting! The big news escaping from Hollywood is that Joss Whedon has been plucked by Warner Bros to write and direct a standalone Batgirl movie and, quite frankly, this is stunningly good news for all.

Whedon obviously has one hell of a history with comic books plus the likes of The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron alongside Serenity, Firefly, Buffy, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a whole lot more and, of course, love for the genre.

It’s been reported by Variety that not only will he write/direct but also produce the untitled Batgirl flick and it’ll be part of DC’s extended universe. It’s an interesting time to announce this and I believe a very smart move given the rather lukewarm reception to Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman. There are also already question marks over what’s happening with The Batman »

‘Batgirl’ Movie: Joss Whedon to Direct Standalone Film (Exclusive)

30 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Batgirl is flying solo. The superheroine is getting her own standalone movie from filmmaker Joss Whedon.

Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.

No other producers are currently attached. Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group is overseeing with Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The new project originated in the past month.

Batgirl is one of the most popular superheroines in the world, but has never gotten her own movie. The project will also feature other characters from the world of Gotham.

Will Deadpool 2 Unveil The Evolution Of Vanessa? Morena Baccarin Certainly Hopes So

29 March 2017 12:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could Deadpool 2 herald the next step in the evolution of Vanessa Carlysle? Morena Baccarin certainly hopes so, though the actress shied away from questions directly relating to Copycat.

Cinema Blend caught up recently with Baccarin in anticipation of Gotham, and it wasn’t long before the conversation veered from DC television to one of Marvel’s greatest anti-heroes. We are, of course, referring to the Merc With a Mouth. Deadpool 2 may still be on the hunt for a release date – along with an actor to play Cable, after Michael Shannon was reportedly labeled first-choice by Fox – but the excitement for David Leitch’s follow-up is palpable, and Baccarin has now weighed in on Vanessa’s arc going into the sequel.

Reflecting on the fallout from the original movie, the former Firefly actress teased the ways in which her relationship with Wade has evolved since his ludicrous encounter with Ed Skrein’s Ajax, »
