Cast This: The Riddler

9 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

With news that Ben Affleck will direct and star in the next standalone Batman movie, the first since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, it’s no surprise that there are already rumors swirling about a potential villain or even villains to go up against the caped crusader. Before things get too out of hand, I thought I would slow things down with a single casting... Read More »

Martha Thomases: Men Don’t Have Breasts

13 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Looking forward to Captain America: Civil War? I am. Along with Free Comic Book Day, it marks the beginning of the summer entertainment season. It’s enough to make a person want to invest in popcorn futures.

(Is there even such a thing as popcorn futures?)

While I won’t defend them as pieces of art, I enjoy a good action movie. I like adrenaline and explosions. I like to watch attractive people pretend to fight each other and pretend to fall in love with each other, preferably with lots of adrenaline and explosives.

The main reason I enjoy these movies is that my inner seven-year-old can pretend that I’m doing some of the heroic actions, or maybe even the villainous actions. The same seven-year-old who believed that the right sneakers would let me run faster and jump higher.

Pre-pubescent kids have amazing imaginations. To be seven is to know, »

Pablo Hidalgo says Supreme Leader Snoke will not appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

1 May 2016 5:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the big talking points coming out of the trailer for December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story concerns the shot of a hooded figure kneeling before what looks to be a Bacta tank, with two of the Emperor’s Royal Guard standing at either side.

The shot in question has led to incessant speculation amongst fans – not only with regards the mysterious hooded figure, but also the inhabitant of the Bacta tank. Could it be the Emperor? Darth Vader? Or how about Supreme Leader Snoke, the new villain from last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

The Snoke theory certainly seemed plausible – the Supreme Leader has clearly suffered some major injuries prior to The Force Awakens, and introducing him in Rogue One would not only help to develop his character prior to Episode VIII, but it would also go some way to explaining his knowledge of the Galactic Empire, »

Mads Mikkelsen lets slip his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story role

28 April 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follow…

He was absent from the first trailer, but it seems that Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen has let slip a spoiler about his role in Decembers’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story during an interview with Sky News.

“I read the script and it was very beautiful,” said Mikkelsen, when asked about the hotly-anticipated spinoff. “Felicity Jones is playing this lovely, strong woman. I play her… father.”

Potentially bigger spoilers follow. You may want to turn back now…

See Also: Star Wars Exclusive: Rogue One’s Darth Vader casting revealed

Mikkelsen’s comments about him portraying Jyn Erso’s father tally up with a rumour from back in January, which highlighted the relationship between the two characters. That same rumour suggested that Mikkelsen was playing a scientist who takes over development of the Death Star and is instrumental in the realisation of the superweapon. »

Defending The Amazing Spider-Man

28 April 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the wall-crawler prepares to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, Henry Bevan defends 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man

A child is trapped in a car that is hanging off a bridge. The hero swings down, takes off his mask and reassures the trapped child that everything is going to be alright. The web holding the car snaps and our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man webs the boy free, saving him for the world to see. In a lesser superhero film, pursuing the villain would have been the main objective, but Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man slows things down and shows our hero being a hero. From this scene alone, it is easy to say that Tasm is a misunderstood movie.

Sandwiched between The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, it was unfairly seen as a cynical superhero snack, the quick fix between Marvel’s bold experiment »

DC Fans Send Death Threats To 2 Critics

23 April 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fanboys sending death threats to reviews who disliked a movie they loved is both really stupid and sadly nothing new. Both DC fans and Marvel fans are guilty of this as in 2012, DC fans sent death theats to critics who posted negative reviews on The Dark Knight Rises & Marvel fans did the same thing to those who posted negative reviews for The Avengers. The actions of a few fanboys doesn't meant the entire fanbase act that way but it still is an unfavorable look upon fans. Sadly some fans are back at it more recently. Meet Clarke Wolfe who works at Nerdist Industries and is also a freelance journalist, actor and Podcast host who was recently attacked on Instagram for disliking Man of Steel. Well, someone threatened to kill me on Instagram today. Over Man Of Steel. This shouldn't be a thing. @DCComics pic.twitter.com/WTk89zJWh2 — Clarke Wolfe (@clarkewolfe) April 22, 2016 Ms. »

Lego shares Rogue One: A Star Wars Story image

April has been an exciting month so far for Star Wars fans, what with the release of the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and confirmation from Flickering Myth’s own Luke Owen that the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader will appear in the film, portrayed by Spencer Wilding (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Well, the folks at The Lego Group have given us another reason to smile, sharing an image based upon the first cast photo for the spinoff, albeit with Lego minifigures…

Daisy Ridley dismisses speculation that Rogue One’s Jyn Erso is Rey’s mother

11 April 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Within virtually minutes of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer dropping last week, some fans were speculating whether Felicity Jones’ character Jyn Erso could be the mother of Rey, played by fellow Brit Daisy Ridley in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Well, speaking to MTV at the MTV Movie Awards, Ridley has put the speculation to rest, stating that: “I’m not being funny, you guys, but just because she’s white and got brown hair … it doesn’t mean she’s my mom.”

Well, she does have a British accent too, so…

Ridley then went on to downplay the importance of Rey’s parentage, adding: “I think the amazing thing about [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] is that Finn and Rey don’t come from anywhere, and they find a place. So to me, it’s funny that people think »

Gritty realism in superhero movies: are we tiring of it?

In the wake of Batman V Superman, Ryan looks at gritty realism in superhero movies, and wonders what the term really means...

It’s a 2016 movie moment that will probably be quoted and parodied for some time to come: Superman tearing the roof off the Batmobile. Batman standing up, his face illuminated by flame. “Tell me,” Batman asks Superman, “do you bleed? You will...”

On the face of it, this year’s Batman V Superman might seem like the last word in dark, gritty superhero movies. Ben Affleck’s incarnation of Batman is portrayed as a hard-drinking lost soul who channels all his rage and self-hatred into variously beating up or branding Gotham’s criminal element. Henry Cavill’s Superman groans under the yoke of his own super powers, having become something of an outcast since his fight with Zod destroyed half of Metropolis. Much of the »

Star Wars Exclusive: Rogue One’s Darth Vader casting revealed

11 April 2016 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last month’s correct report on who Scoot McNairy was really playing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (spoilers: it wasn’t Jimmy Olsen or Metallo), we’ve now got a Star Wars exclusive for you this morning on the casting of Darth Vader.

It was reported last year that the Sith Lord would feature in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and that Hayden Christensen would be reprising the role for the movie. We teased last month that the rumour was correct, but Christensen would not be playing the part. That’s because our sources are telling us that in fact British actor Spencer Wilding has been cast to play the body of Darth Vader in Rogue One.

Wilding is mostly a stunt actor and has had bit parts in Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman Begins, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Wrath of the Titans. We »

Gary Oldman gives J.K. Simmons advice on playing Commissioner Gordon in Justice League

10 April 2016 2:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 2017’s Justice League Part One, Oscar winner J.K. Simmons will be taking on the iconic role of Gotham City’s Commissioner James Gordon, making him the first actor to play the part in a live-action film since Gary Oldman did so in The Dark Knight Rises. In fact, Oldman, who was among a slew of brilliant actors that took part in Christopher Nolan’s much-celebrated The Dark Knight trilogy, always stood out as one of the best, turning in an excellent performance in each outing. For that reason, it only seems fitting that Oldman gives advice to Simmons on how to tackle the character in a new interview. 

While speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Oldman, on Simmons being hired for the role, said, “God bless him. Good luck, that’s what I say.”

He then shared his insight into the character, “The thing you’ve just got to get used »

Samuel Brace with four reasons to be excited about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The teaser trailer for the hotly anticipated Star Wars prequel/anthology movie, Rogue One landed this past week and oh boy, did it impress. Everything from the visuals, aesthetic, character designs to the music, this trailer was on god damn point and gave us a glimpse at what looks to be potentially an excellent movie. Hype was high before this teaser, just the knowledge that the film would be about stealing the plans to the Og Death Star were enough, but this first look has only amplified such feelings. Will the movie be great? Who knows. For that, we will have to wait and see. But it sure as shit looks cool, and there is many a reason to be excited for the December release. Here are four of them.
