Jason Momoa Will Probably Be in the 'Man of Steel' Sequel

10 December 2013 3:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are hoping to snag Jason Momoa for a role in Zack Snyder's Batman/Superman mash-up. Momoa is in talks to join the movie currently known as "Batman Vs. Superman," but so far we can only wager a few guesses as to which superhero (or super-villain) he'll play.

The man who brought Khal Drogo to rippling, muscular life would be an excellent choice to play Justice League member Martian Manhunter, a buff bad-ass from outer space that would fit into a possible larger Jla franchise. He could also take on the role of Doomsday, a beastly Kryptonian whose only purpose and desire is to kill, baby, kill.

Momoa is no stranger to the universe of fantasy and sci-fi. In 2011, he donned a loincloth to play Conan the Barbarian in an attempt to refresh that '80s franchise. He also appeared in the popular sci-fi series "Stargate: Atlantis" as Ronon Dex. »

Batman vs. Superman vs. Conan vs. Khal Drogo

9 December 2013 6:00 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Although these days Jason Momoa is known more for his role as Conan in the ill-fated “Conan the Barbarian” reboot and on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as marauding king of the plains Khal Drogo, I still like to think of him more as roguish good guy Ronon Dex on “Stargate: Atlantis”. Either that, or as Jason Ioane on “Baywatch”. Anyways. It looks like Momoa is about to put those muscles to good use, with Variety reporting that the actor is currently “in talks for a part in Warner Bros. untitled Batman-Superman movie”. Now the first thing you have to consider is this: it’s probably not going to be some minor role, since after “Conan” and “Game of Thrones”, Momoa has a bit of a name. And since he’s played a villain before (“Bullet to the Head”, and I guess to an extent his Khal Drogo can be »

Mindy Newell: Stargate Revisited

14 October 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I never really got into MacGyver, but I got my Richard Dean Anderson fix on Stargate Sg-1.

Stargate, as many of you I’m sure remember, was a 1994 movie which circled around a gigantic ring made of unknown metal and covered in what is believed to be Egyptian hieroglyphs that is discovered buried in the sands of Giza, Egypt in during an archeological expedition in 1928. The purpose of the ring remained a mystery for sixty years, its hieroglyphs untranslatable. Finally a brilliant linguist and archaeologist specializing in Egyptology named Daniel Jackson (James Spader) is co-opted by the U.S. government and brought to Cheyenne Mountain (home of Norad) to decipher the scrawlings on the ring, which has been brought there for study and possible use by the military.

He tells the assembled scientists and military officers (including United States Air Force Colonel Jack O’Neil (Kurt Russell) that the hieroglyphs »

'Stargate' should return to television, says writer Joseph Mallozzi

23 September 2013 8:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stargate writer Joseph Mallozzi has argued that the sci-fi franchise should return to television.

Roland Emmerich - who directed the original 1994 movie - recently told Digital Spy that he had "proposed" a new movie reboot trilogy.

"My gut instinct tells me the studio would love to follow the Star Trek model - take an established property, re-imagine it for the big screen, and make hundreds of millions of dollars," Mallozzi - a writer and executive producer on Stargate Sg-1, Stargate: Atlantis and Stargate Universe - wrote in a recent blog.

"If the studio does consider going down this route, careful consideration will present two indisputable facts: a) Stargate is not Star Trek, and b) alienating long-time fans in favour of a new audience could prove disastrous."

Mallozzi claimed that "a new television series would be the best way to go", suggesting "a fresh take on Stargate that would bring in »

Stargate Reboot Will Be a Trilogy Reveals Roland Emmerich

5 September 2013 1:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Stargate was a moderate hit for MGM back in 1994, bringing in $196 million at the worldwide box office. It never got a sequel, instead spawning a number of syndicated television spin-offs. That wasn't the original plan, though, as director and co-writer of the movie explains in a new interview.

Roland Emmerich claims he always had a trilogy in mind for the sci-fi epic, but that never came to fruition. While he is planning direct sequels to his other sci-fi hit Independence Day, he thinks its impossible to do the same with Stargate, as the original story's continuation needs to be immediate and the actors are far too old to return now.

Instead, the director is planning a whole new reboot that will consist of three film's bringing his original trilogy plans to the screen for the first time. This is what Roland Emmerich told Digital Spy about his plans to keep working in the Stargate universe. »

Cory Monteith obituary

14 July 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Canadian actor best known for his role as Finn Hudson in Glee

The Canadian actor Cory Monteith, who has been found dead in a Vancouver hotel room aged 31, shot to fame as the all-American student Finn Hudson in Glee, the worldwide television hit about an Ohio high-school show choir.

When the musical-comedy teen series began in 2009, Monteith was cast as Finn after submitting what he described as "a cheesy 80s music video-style version" of the Reo Speedwagon power ballad Can't Fight This Feeling. Although he had no previous singing experience and his vocal performance was considered slightly weak, producers believed that Monteith displayed the naivety they were looking for in Finn, a quarterback in the fictional William McKinley High School football team and a member of its choir, New Directions.

The role made Monteith not only a global TV star, but also a lead singer in a recording act with »

Heather Doerksen talks jaeger robots and working with director Guillermo del Toro in Pacific Rim, debuting in theaters July 12

Director Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is set to hit theaters this weekend, bringing the creature feature genre back to the big screen with stars such as Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, and Ron Perlman. While she doesn't quite have the name recognition of those previously-mentioned actors, Heather Doerksen (the "O" is silent) is looking to break out in a big way. No stranger to genre fare (Stargate: Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, Fringe), Heather Doerksen plays Russian jaeger pilot Sasha Kaidanovsky, who teams up with the towering Robert Maillet to run Cherno Alpha. I recently had the chance to speak with this talented actress about her unique experience working with Guillermo del Toro and much more. Here's what she had to say.

Dave Bautista is Drax the Destroyer in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

14 March 2013 5:22 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Last month, Stargate: Atlantis and Game of Thrones alum Jason Momoa appeared to have locked up the role of muscle-bound, super-powered, alien warrior Drax the Destroyer in Marvel and director James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie. However, a deal failed to materialize reportedly due to Momoa wanting a higher salary than offered, so the studio went back to the drawing board and re-started testing actors for the role once again.

Previously (but unofficially) shortlisted candidates for the Drax role include Old Spice commercial sensation Isaiah Mustafa and celebrity trainer-turned actor Brian Patrick Wade (Generation Kill), as well as WWE and Mma fighter-turned actor Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists). We can now confirm one of these ripped gentlemen as having landed the Guardians role in question.

Jason Momoa Reportedly Offered Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy

15 February 2013 11:50 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

The biggest pain in Marvel’s side when it comes to keeping secrets, Latino-Review seems to have done it again. On the heels of breaking the news that Harrison Ford is set to return for the “Star Wars” movies as Han Solo, the boys at Lr now report that “Conan” star Jason Momoa’s screen test for Drax in the studio’s upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” went so well, they’ve offered him the role. It’s certainly not the worst choice Marvel could have made. Momoa, who started life on “Stargate: Atlantis” before parlaying that into “Game of Thrones” Season 1 and the recent “Conan” reboot (along with the Sylvester StalloneBullet to the Head” actioner), definitely has the size and physique to play the large green-skinned alien assassin Drax The Destroyer. So who exactly is Drax? As with all Marvel characters, he’s got a pretty muddled past: A former saxophonist, »

Update: Jason Momoa In Talks For ‘Drax the Destroyer’ Role In Guardians Of The Galaxy

15 February 2013 10:27 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As a 150-foot asteroid nearly dropped on us just moments ago (passing earth safely), the ever-reliable guys at Latino Review have just dropped their latest scoop involving Marvel’s 2014 otherworldly venture, Guardians of the Galaxy. After nabbing Zero Dark Thirty star Chris Pratt for the lead role, Peter Quill Aka Star-Lord, the studio and director James Gunn have moved on to another Guardian, Drax the Destroyer. Latino Review reports that Conan the Barbarian actor Jason Momoa not only screen-tested for the role in London just last Wednesday, but that it was so good, “Marvel offered him the part and his reps have now countered.” Therefore, negotiations are underway. As reported exclusively last month, via Comic Book Movie’s Alex Lynch, actors/models Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade and former WWE Superstar Dave Bautista have all tested for the Drax role. Anyhow, Momoa, 33, is best known for his roles in Stargate: Atlantis, »

Set Visit: Bullet to the Head with Sung Kang and Director Walter Hill

24 January 2013 9:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We head to New Orleans to visit the set of Bullet to the Head, starring Sylvester Stallone

I'm a big proponent of meaningful movie titles. That's not to say that there has to be some deep-seated, thoughtful meaning behind a title, but it has to mean something, unlike a movie such as Rush Hour, whose title comes from an arbitrary line uttered in the first act. When I hear about a movie like Bullet to the Head, I know immediately what to expect: fight scenes, gunplay, general badass-ness, and the like. Bullet to the Head is not a movie guys will take their girlfriends to. Teenage girls will not wait in line for days on end to see Bullet to the Head on February 1. Bullet to the Head is a motherf*&%ing Action movie, and a throwback action movie at that.
