The 2016 superhero season kicks off next week with the hotly-anticipated arrival of Deadpool (which has been granted a 15-certificate from the BBFC, for any of our younger UK readers who were worried they might miss out), and so naturally Fox’s marketing department has been working overtime. Among the promotional material flooding the internet this week, we have a Rob Liefeld poster, »

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”
Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »

“We own your childhood.” – Bob Iger
There was a lot of talk last year about whether the superhero bubble had burst. Avengers: Age of Ultron made less than its predecessor, Ant-Man’s opening weekend was Marvel’s second lowest, and Fantastic Four was, well, not that fantastic.
Enter Disney chairman Bob Iger – the man who ultimately decides the fate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (think Corporate Thanos). He said the McU will “go on forever, »

Now that 2015 is over, there are plenty of ‘Best Of’ lists pronouncing the movies you should have seen already. Hell, even we did it at Flickering Myth. But by the end of the year, it’s too late. You suddenly have 50+ films you missed out on to catch up with. Where were the ‘Best Ofs’ as the year was in progress? That’s where Flickering Myth’s Big, Fat Movie Checklist of 2016 comes in.
Suicide Squad is released on 5th August, 2016.
While there are many retrospective lists online, there are very few resources updated regularly for the movies of the year.
Below are the movies worth watching in 2016, based on their current UK release dates (which these days is pretty similar to the Us). Most of the January releases have already come out, many upcoming ones will be pushed back or brought forward. We’ll update the list monthly to »

The truth, albeit a suspected (and logical) one, is finally out:
The Legends of Tomorrow… are, as Jax put it, “the opposite of legends.” Meaning, the eight of ’em were recruited by Time Master Rip Hunter (Doctor Who‘s Arthur Darvill) because the dent they leave on history will be so infinitesimal, they’re meaningless to the future timeline — and thus are expendable, should the mission go sideways.
“That was always the design [of the show],” says exec producer Marc Guggenheim — albeit at one point with a tiiiiiny tweak.
“We were planning on revealing that secret to the team at the end of »

James Wan’s box office juggernaut Furious 7 emerged as the big winner from last night’s People’s Choice Awards 2016, nabbing two prizes across the Favorite Movie and Favorite Action Movie categories. It brings closure to a remarkable year for Universal’s petrolhead franchise, which is now eyeing a production start in Cuba ahead of F. Gary Gray’s 2017 entry into the series.
Beyond that, the other success story was that of The Big Bang Theory. Continuing to pull in the big numbers even after nine seasons, Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady’s beloved sitcom took home the Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network TV Comedy gongs, while Jim Parsons – who plays the incomparable Sheldon Cooper – got the nod for Favorite Comedic TV Actor. Remaining with the big winners for the time being and Melissa McCarthy stole the show across both mediums, earning Favorite Comedic Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic TV Actress. »

Vin name dropped the late actor, whom he has called his brother, and at the end of the speech he sang a verse from the film's end song, "See You Again."
Here's his full speech:

The PCAs are sort of the start of awards season, but things don't really kick off until this Sunday's Golden Globes. There was a stage-crasher promoting a new album (that's him below), and Dakota Johnson talked about her boobs, but otherwise the 2016 PCAs just stuck with the tradition of honoring celebs »
