NBC has released your first look at star Matt Ryan (“Layer Cake”) from their upcoming “Constantine” TV show, based on the D.C. comic book “Hellblazer.” The character was previously portrayed by a very non-British Keanu Reeves in the movie of the same name directed by Francis Lawrence, but this time around they’re giving you an honest to goodness Brit in the role. Ryan will star as the titular demon hunter, one John Constantine, a man “struggling with his faith is haunted by the sins of his past but is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness.” The show co-stars Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau, and Charles Halford. Neil Marshall (of “The Descent” and “Doomsday” fame) is directing the pilot, with “Man of Steel” and “Batman Begins” guy David S. Goyer having adapted the show from the comic originally created by Daniel Cerone. »
Today we have two photos from the set of NBC's upcoming "Constantine" TV series, which is based on a DC Comics property. While shooting the pilot episode, the cast and crew snapped a few shots of themselves for Sarah Elizabeth Jones, who died last month while working as a camera assistant on the Greg Allman biopic "Midnight Rider." Check out the photos below, which give us a look at Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as the title character. The series also stars Lucy Griffiths as Liv, Harold Perrineau as the angel Manny and Charles Halford as Constantine's friend Chas. It's written by David Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) And directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent). "Constantine" centers on John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con-man, who becomes a reluctant supernatural detective and is thrust into the role of defending the world against dark forces from beyond.

Production on the Batman prequel series Gotham is expected to begin this month, and while we know who the main characters will be, there’s still not a lot we know about the show beyond that. In an official description of the series, it was reiterated that James Gordon would be the main character of the series, and that we would watch him manoeuvre around the corrupt Gotham City as a new detective. It also hinted at a closer relationship between Gordon and young Bruce Wayne as Gordon forms a bond with the boy and is determined to catch the man who killed his parents. Aside from that, nothing else was revealed other than repeating that Harvey Bullock, Alfred, Penguin, Selina Kyle, Sarah Essen, Barbara Kean and original character Fish Mooney will be the other main players.
It’s unclear how much the show will deviate from the source material. »

NBC's small screen adaptation of the comic series based on the Alan Moore-created character John Constantine finds its way in front of cameras next week, with the pilot episode being filmed. Perfect time to catch up with writer/producer David S. Goyer and talk about the show? You bet!
In an interview with I Am Rogue, which you can watch below, Goyer confirmed that the character of Constantine, played by Matt Ryan, will rock his trademark trench coat and skinny tie and that the show will remain very faithful to the source material.
Though he calls the 2005 film "interesting," he says that the television adaptation will be much truer to the comic books it's based on.
Goyer went on to say that if the show gets the chance to move forward past the pilot, other characters from the Constantine universe will pop up. "I think we would try to »

NBC is almost ready to start production of their new series Constantine, which is based on the popular comic book. According to the series writer and producer, David Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel), production on the series starts this week. He also stated that the adaptation is going to follow the comic book more than the movie did and reveals a few other cool things that fans will be happy to hear. While talking to I Am Rouge he said,
John Constantine is a notorious chain smoker, and when asked if he would partake in his old habits on the series, Goyer replied:
"That's a tricky one on network TV. We're negotiating right now. »

Released at the height of the straight to video techno-horror phase that rode in on the coat-tails of The Lawnmower Man and also saw the release of films such as Evolver and Brainscan, Arcade was, I think, unfairly overlooked, at least in the UK, at the time due to poor distribution, a lack of big-name stars (unlike Brainscan which had a post-T2 Edward Furlong, the biggest stars in Arcade were A Christmas Story’s Peter Billingsley and St:tng’s John De Lancie), and effects that – even though they were apparently redone after the film was completed – did not compare to other CGI-heavy films at the time.

Batman: Arkham Asylum blew both fans and casual gamers away by not only presenting an amazing game, but also revolutionising the superhero genre and proving that a solid title could be produced within it. It wasn’t just the engaging story, but also the realistic combat and stealth systems that put players in the mind of one of the greatest superheroes ever created. In a lot of ways, it held the same impact as Batman Begins.
The critical and commercial success set up the game’s developers, RockSteady, for a surefire sequel which came in 2011 as Batman: Arkham City. Both Arkham Asylum and Blackgate Prison have been shutdown, their prisoners relocated to a mass containment camp called Arkham City. So many great changes were done to make the game feel like a worthy successor, such as the ability to use gadgets in combat and more takedown options during predator. »

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is moving forward with a planned reboot of the “Zorro” franchise based on the 2005 Isabel Allende novel, which centers on the young Zorro who witnesses the brutal injustices dealt to Native Americans.
Screenwriter Chris Boal, brother of Mark Boal (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Hurt Locker”), has come onboard to rewrite a draft previously penned by Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia. Boal was a competitive fencer on the national circuit before becoming a writer.
This new project will have nothing to do with the Antonio Banderas films The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro but will have a sort of “Batman Begins” style of approach, with a new backstory, gritty realism and emotional core. So for those of you who have seen the Banderas films, this will follow Anthony Hopkins character’s backstory. There will be swordplay, combined with the martial arts that came »

The Zorro character first appeared in Johnston McCulley's 1919 novella "The Curse of Capistrano", Allende's work is an origin tale and prequel to the events of that story, and contains numerous references to other famous Zorro works including 1998's "The Mask of Zorro".
The project is not to be confused with Fox's rival sci-fi take "Zorro Reborn" which puts the character in a "Mad Max"-esque apocalyptic wasteland.

There are some actors who define the action genre. Actors whose steely gaze can make villains tremble; who could blow up a tank with a single flex of their bicep. And then there are the other types: those who came out of nowhere – those who you would sooner expect in a teen comedy or a cheesy romance than a rip-roaring, explosion-packed extravaganza.
So remember that Tom Hardy forged himself into a human wrecking ball for Warrior and The Dark Knight Rises, but before that he was a skinny beanpole who wouldn’t have a chance against Alfred in a street fight (let alone Batman). Before Jason Statham turned himself into a rinse-and-repeat action megastar, he was a diver and a model.. and although he was entertaining in Lock, Stock, he wasn’t exactly the picture of an action hero.
So here is a tribute to the latter. Here »

Some quick casting news has arrived for NBC's "Constantine" series as The Wrap is reporting that Harold Perrineau (“Lost”), Lucy Griffiths (“True Blood”), and Charles Halford (“True Detective”) have joined the graphic novel pilot.
Perrineau (pictured), who played the role of Michael Dawson on ABC's “Lost” and recently appeared in FX's “Sons of Anarchy,” has been cast as series regular Manny. The network describes the character as an authoritative figure assigned to watch over Constantine (series star Matt Ryan).
Griffiths will play the role of Liv, Constantine's partner with supernatural abilities. She most recently starred in the sixth season of HBO's “True Blood” as Nora Gainesborough. “True Detective's” Charles Halford has been cast as Chas, Constantine's oldest friend and staunch companion with possible supernatural survival skills.
Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who »

Out of the Furnace hits on Blu-Ray March 11th, and I’ve got a copy available for you to win. With all the hype surrounding awards season, and Christian Bale’s other film, American Hustle, his earlier release hasn’t received a lot of attention recently. Because it hits so close to the Academy Awards show, I wanted to make sure it doesn’t slip by unnoticed.
We didn’t give it the best rating when we reviewed this one on the podcast, but it has a lot that makes it worth watching. Mainly, Bale’s acting, but the rest of the cast does a solid job as well. You may already know that I’m a big fan of Bale’s, and this is a film that really offers up good reason to be. Even in a film that didn’t blow me away, he is still impressive to watch. »

YouTube comedy animators How It Should Have Ended have released their latest animated video, which makes a pretty good case for what Batman *should* have done during the climactic sequence of Batman Begins. Granted, it wouldn't make for such an exciting climax, but it would've been a whole lot safer.
Watch the video below...
Someone really needs to make an Arkham Asylum sitcom. »

While The Dark Knight gets most of the love from fanboys and The Dark Knight Rises gets all the hate, I feel like sometimes people forget about Batman Begins. Personally I think it's the best live-action portrayal of the vigilante, but even I had to laugh a few times while watching How It Should Have Ended's latest video for Christopher Nolan's first Batman film. In their new video, Hishe has some fun with a couple of scenes from Batman Begins, including Batman »

Take a look at Kimmel's version - starring the Hemsworths, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks - and the original video. Here's the original video: »
