Trump's Space Force Is Getting Trolled Hard by Guardians of the Galaxy Fans

Today, President Donald Trump announced that the United States needs to be better represented in space. He took it one step further and added that there is now a sixth branch of the Us Armed Services called the Space Force, which will assert American dominance over all the galaxy. In a poor choice of words, Trump stated that it will be "separate but equal" to the Air Force. Now, Guardians of the Galaxy fans are suiting up to take aim at the new Space Force.

Ronald Regan had his Star Wars in the 1980s and now Donald Trump has his Space Force. And while a lot of Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars fans are kidding around, there's actually a small group of people that actually believe that Trump is initiating some kind of real-life Marvel Cinematic Universe. A new branch of the government that will see spandex and laser blasters.

‘New Girl’ Review: The Series Finale Is a Solid Ending, But It’s Got an Amazing Twist

‘New Girl’ Review: The Series Finale Is a Solid Ending, But It’s Got an Amazing Twist
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “New Girl” Season 7, Episode 8, “Engram Pattersky” — the series finale — as well as previous episodes.]

If you would’ve told me the final scene of “New Girl” would be a season-altering twist by Prank Sinatra himself — aka Winston Bishop (Lamorne Morris), aka. Winnie the Bish, aka the father who named his son Dan Bill Bishop while his wife was sleeping — I might not have even watched the finale; that’s how worried I would’ve been about ending this particular broadcast sitcom with a jarring revelation instead of a heartwarming goodbye.

After all, “New Girl” struggled when it pushed itself into overly ambitious territory. The ongoing will-they-won’t-they romance of Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) got so complicated they had to set it aside until fear of cancellation set in. Their big swing in the post-Super Bowl spot was the biggest miss of the series. Heck, most of the

Tribeca Film Review: ‘7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh’
Excessive absurdity is to be expected from a film titled “7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh,” and Vivieno Caldinelli’s feature doesn’t disappoint in that regard. But the outlandishness proffered by this comedy is of such a strident sort that any possible laughs quickly turn to eye-rolling groans. Despite inclusion in the Midnight movies section of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, this atonal affair is unlikely to elicit much good will from audiences of any genre persuasion.

Ohio transplants Claire (Kate Micucci) and Paul (Sam Huntington) have no sooner moved into their new Los Angeles apartment than they’re discovering the reason for its unbelievably low rent: It’s the former home of the Holy Storsh (Taika Waititi), a cult leader who killed himself in the bathtub, and is now a place where his disciples come to follow his fatal lead.

Brooding Fan Poster For Deathstroke Makes Room For Jason Todd

Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd?

We can see it. As a matter of fact, we’ve already heard it, as the Supernatural mainstay initially voiced the role for Batman: Under The Red Hood back in 2010. But even now, seven whole years later, DC fans are still calling on Warner Bros. to cast Jensen Ackles in a live-action interpretation of Red Hood.

And though it may never come to be, a DeviantArt user by the name of ‘Wandambatha’ has produced a dark and gloomy poster for Deathstroke, the recently-announced spinoff movie that has Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Joe Manganiello attached to direct and headline, respectively.

If the stars align, Manganiello’s Slade Wilson is primed for a big, big future in the DC Extended Universe, though Justice League‘s middling box office performance will surely have Warner Bros. thinking twice about future instalments in its shared franchise. Either way, this

Rumor: Deathstroke Still Involved In The Batman, But Lex Luthor Will Be Pulling The Strings

Is there another project in Hollywood that has attracted the same number of conflicting reports as The Batman?

Even before Matt Reeves signed on to direct, the mooted DC solo flick was dogged by countless rumors – rumors that have only intensified now that Justice League is out in the wild. The latest concerns Ben Affleck and, specifically, his future in the DC Extended Universe.

Despite going on record time and time again about his commitment to the role, recently there have been some tell-tale signs that Affleck’s time in the cape and cowl is coming to an end, with Reeves said to be eyeing up Jake Gyllenhaal as a potential replacement. If true, it would have massive ramifications for the Dceu, as Gyllenhaal would surely take point for the inevitable Justice League sequel.

But until we have some answers to those questions, Reddit has uncovered a new 4chan leak

Epic Fan Poster Imagines Deathstroke Vs. Red Hood Movie

This week brought with it the news that DC are adding yet another movie onto their slate – Joe Manganiello will be starring as Slade Wilson in a Deathstroke solo film from director Gareth Evans. Since the announcement dropped, people have been working hard to come up with theories about what form the film might take and a new fan-made poster may have just nailed exactly what many would love to see.

From digital artist extraordinaire Boss Logic comes this mock one-sheet for Deathstroke, which imagines Manganiello’s anti-hero doing battle with Red Hood, with Supernatural‘s Jensen Ackles “cast” in the role of Batman’s former sidekick, Jason Todd. To show off Ackles’ face, the artist has done away with Red Hood’s distinctive helmet, but it still looks pretty damn awesome.

Check it out in the gallery down below, along with some of Boss Logic’s other recent work,

Kate Micucci, Sam Huntington, Dan Harmon and Taika Waititi set for Corpse Tub

Deadline is reporting that Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory), Sam Huntington (Rosewood), Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) are set to star in director Vivieno Caldinelli (This House Has 22 Minutes) dark comedy Corpse Tub.

The film “follows a young Midwestern couple (Micucci, Huntington) who take a chance on moving to L.A. when they find an apartment with impossibly low rent. It’s soon revealed that the former occupant was an enigmatic cult leader (Taika Waititi) who ended his life in the claw-foot bathtub. Now, a steady stream of his eccentric cult members break into the apartment to kill themselves in the tub in honor of their leader. Unable to afford another move, they soon find themselves inexplicably drawn into the cult, all the while navigating the inquiries of a beleaguered Lapd detective (Harmon) obsessed with selling a screenplay based on his own life.”

Avengers: Infinity War Standee Resurrects Two Marvel Heroes

The only people who stay dead in comics are Jason Todd and Uncle Ben, as the old saying goes, but what about Yondu and the Ancient One?

Over the weekend, Disney erected the latest standee for Avengers: Infinity War, bringing together a small portion of the film’s gigantic lineup. Upon first glance, everything appeared to be in order, as the likes of Captain America and Doctor Strange were placed alongside Black Widow and Chris Hemsworth’s burly God of Thunder. Peer a little closer, though, and you’ll realize that Infinity War‘s standee also features two Marvel characters from beyond the grave: Yondu of Guardians of the Galaxy fame and the Ancient One, Tilda Swinton’s all-powerful sorcerer.

Is this a major story spoiler hiding in plain sight? Or an innocent PR blunder that’s now beginning to blow out of proportion? We’re inclined to believe it’s the latter,

The 5 DC Comics Storylines That Deserve Standalone Movies

Ben Robins on the 5 DC Comics storylines that deserve standalone movies…

With reports spreading across the DC/Warner Bros. fence this week that we might well be looking at a number of stand-alone movies from the DC Comics world, talk of possible adaptations has been rife once again. Ironically, stepping back momentarily from the Dceu could end up being a major leap forward for the studio, especially since they’ve been playing third fiddle to Marvel and Fox in the superhero arena for almost half a decade by this point.

A Todd Phillips and Martin Scorsese-backed Joker origins movie seems to already be on the cards as the spin-off universe’s starting point, and we’re still not entirely sure where David F. Sandberg’s Shazam movie is going to sit within the timeline. Not having to play within the boundaries of the Justice League’s world will certainly

No Deathstroke In The Batman? Put Him In Chris McKay’s Nightwing Then

Another week, another Dceu rumor. This time, fans have lost their minds wondering whether Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke will be appearing in Matt ReevesThe Batman or not. To be fair, Reeves himself probably doesn’t know yet, either, as he’s likely rewriting the script as we speak, so it’s all up in the air at the moment.

While all of us would love to see Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Deathstroke go toe to toe in a battle of strength and wits, the lack of Slade Wilson in the Bat’s solo film shouldn’t be too big of a concern right now. After all, there are other loose ends that Reeves will need to tie up, so perhaps it’s best he sees to those first. For example, Jason Todd’s death and how the hell the Joker got that stupid grill and tattoos.
