Comics: The Watchmen May Finally Be Revealed In Batman And The Flash!

21 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We learned almost 2 years ago now that The Watchmen, created by Alan Moore, will be in continuity in the DC world after they purchased Charlton Comics. And over the past years we have been given hints to their involvement in the shaping of Rebirth.

We have the supposedly mysterious Mr. Oz which to most people is clearly Adrian Veidt, aka Ozymandias the main Villain from Watchmen, seemingly behind the scenes watching his typical "wall of monitor" setup and manipulating the events in the DC comic world. The first hint was given when a homeless woman, referred to as Miss Janet, has either a brand or a tattoo on her wrist that looked strikingly similar to the symbol on the perfume bottle Nostalgia, which was shown in the original Watchmen comic.

Additionally, we have seen the possible involvement of Dr. Manhattan, as he disintegrated Pandora in almost the exact same fashion »

Exclusive: Fan-Art Shows Us What Patrick Wilson Could Look Like As Aquaman's Villain!

18 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It was announced last month that Watchmen actor Patrick Wilson has been cast to play The King of Atlantis' (Jason Momoa) evil half-brother Orm, also known as the villainous "Ocean Master", in the Jason Momoa film (see the announcement here). Or was it last year? Technically I guess both of those statements are correct! There was even some fan-art making the rounds that we shared proceeding the announcement (see @BossLogic's artwork here). Yes, that's all old news, but I had to include it for anyone that may have missed it. What's "new" is this exclusive artwork created for ComicBookMovie.com depicting Wilson as Ocean Master! You might remember the artwork we shared a while back of Richard E. Grant look like as Mr. Sinister by the very talented Hamza Javed (hjaved.art). I think you'll agree that this new artwork is not only better than Hamza's previous Mr. Sinister piece, »

Ben Affleck On Sad Affleck Meme & What He Learned From Batman v Superman

18 January 2017 11:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Over the past decade or so, actor/writer/director Ben Affleck has done a great job at turning himself into Hollywood’s golden boy. Gone Baby Gone was a terrific directorial debut, and in The Town, he really upped his game with the hard-hitting crime aspects. Argo saw him reach a completely new level when the movie won Best Picture, cementing Affleck as a hot talent in Hollywood.

As such, when he joined the DC Extended Universe as Batman, not only did it give a lot of credibility to the project, but it seemed to imply that Warner Bros. was looking to have Affleck direct a standalone Batman film in the near future. Of course, we now know that to be absolutely true, as Affleck is on board to direct the next Batman film, and with that knowledge going into the filming of last year’s Batman v Superman, we »

Michael Fassbender and Carmen Ejogo featured on new Alien: Covenant image

13 January 2017 4:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Empire, we’ve got a new image from Ridley Scott’s hotly-anticipated sci-fi horror Alien: Covenant, which features Michael Fassbender’s android Walter alongside Carmen Ejogo’s as-yet-unrevealed character. Check it out here…

See Also: Interview: Ridley Scott on revisiting the Alien franchise with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19th, 2017 and is penned by Michael Green, »

New Alien: Covenant image released, Katherine Waterston acknowledges similarities between Daniels and Ripley

9 January 2017 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

USA Today recently shared a new image of Alien: Covenant star Katherine Waterston entrenched in battle.

Waterston also acknowledges the similarities between Daniels and original heroine Ripley, stating: “You don’t really know what you’re made of until you’re tested. They are both able to somehow think clearly in really shocking, unimaginable scenarios. It’s fun to play someone who can thrive in that chaos.”

Watch Jimmy Fallon playfully jab Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the 74th Golden Globes

9 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues to be the butt of many jokes, this time from Jimmy Fallon during his opening routine at last night’s 74th Golden Globes ceremony.

The joke came when Jimmy Fallon noticed Matt Damon in the audience, to which he delivered a zinger suggesting that Damon’s best acting role was telling Ben Affleck (the two are very good friends) that he liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. »

Henry Cavill reveals awesome behind-the-scenes shot from Batman v Superman

5 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new behind-the-scenes shot from the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shows a furious Henry Cavill charging forward, presumably during the film’s fight scene between its two titular superheroes. Check it out below…

Cavill unveiled the picture to the whole world via his Instagram and Facebook and attached a humorous caption along with it that read: “Remembering a time while shooting BvS and they told me I wasn’t allowed my usual Salted Caramel Mochaccino with skinny coconut milk and whip… #NoMercy #NoExcuses #Superman.”

Despite the negative reviews directed toward the film, most of them took no issue with Cavill’s portrayal of the Man of Steel, which, considering how much scrutiny certain actors receive for their interpretations of classic comic book characters, is worth something. The case could even be made that Cavill hasn’t really had the proper material from Dawn of Justice and »

Alien: Covenant to get a Vr experience

4 January 2017 11:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fans of the Alien franchise have even more reason to anticipate Alien: Covenant as director Ridley Scott is set to immerse audiences in a virtual reality game set in the latest film.

The Alien: Covenant Virtual Reality Experience will come to all major Vr platforms as a paid-for title for an as yet unknown date, though it can be assumed the game will be timed for or close to the film’s May 19th, 2017 release.

Ridley Scott is partnering with the Fox Innovation Lab to produce the game, but it will actually be his visual effects artist David Karlak who will direct the Vr experience. Fox Innovation has described the game as a “dread-inducing journey into the depths of the Alien universe” and that players will have to “navigate through horrifying alien environments and a story where every decision could mean the difference between life and death.”

Interview: Ridley Scott on revisiting the Alien franchise with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant

2 January 2017 4:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking with us at the press junket for Taboo which airs this weekend on BBC One, director Ridley Scott opened up about what we can expect in Alien: Covenant and why he returned to the franchise he launched back in 1979.

“When I saw Alien finally succumb after four films, which was a good run, then they also did Alien vs. Predator, after which I thought, ‘Uh-oh, that’s it’ – then I waited a couple of years, I went back and decided to resurrect it,” he said. “No-one actually asked where [the aliens] came from in the three subsequent movies, which is kind of ridiculous. That’s why good writers are good writers, they’ll ask a basic question like that and make that into a scenario.”

Scott wanted to go back and really explore the origins of the xenomorphs, adding that, “We did Prometheus – that heaved it off the ground, and Covenant is a follow-through to Prometheus. »

Geoff Johns To Continue Writing Comics In 2017, Hints At Watchmen

2 January 2017 9:14 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By now, we’re all well aware that Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer, is a very busy man. Having written definitive tales such as Blackest Night, Infinite Crisis, and Flashpoint were but among a few things that made him the right person for the job to oversee DC’s various ventures into film, television, and video games. Heck, he even recently teased that there’s more to come in the new year regarding the publisher’s dominance of the small screen.

As awesome as the prospect of seeing other superheroes brought to life within the next twelve months may be, not having Johns pen any comics has left quite the void. Thankfully, he’s cooking something up and, while it’s not entirely clear what that may be, his cryptic Tweet strongly hints that it’s something having to do with Watchmen.

And 1) Writing comics again… stay tuned! »

Watch the Watchmen-inspired Suicide Squad opening

2 January 2017 4:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

YouTube user Chris Banks has created an opening credits sequence for Suicide Squad in the same vein as what Zack Snyder did with Watchmen. Both blockbusters were supercharged with a number of notable classic rock songs, so it’s not exactly the craziest mash-up, but still entertaining. Check it out here…

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself? »

Zack Snyder cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed

2 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zack Snyder may be the man behind the Dceu (for better or worse, depending on who you talk to), having already directed Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with Justice League on the way, and apparently, he likes having a little fun on the sets of these blockbuster epics, inserting himself into the picture.

Cinematographer Larry Fong revealed via Twitter that during a scene in a fight club where Ben Affleck’s bat-hands pick up a cell phone mostly offscreen, the hands actually belong to Zack Snyder. No stranger to making a cameo in his own films, Snyder is also rumored to appear in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which opens in July.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. »
