New Titans Promo Teases Batman’s Arrival

When a TV series such as Titans features Dick Grayson in his Robin persona in the lead role – not to mention guest appearances made by his successor, Jason Todd – it’s virtually impossible to get around the subject of Batman. But when the Dark Knight is tied up in movies and in the process of going through the motions of his own respective origin over on Gotham, well, there’s bound to be some red tape preventing a proper cameo.

Still, hope springs eternal, especially whenever DC continues waving steaks in front of our faces. Already, we’ve seen Bruce Wayne appear in profile and out of focus, thus fueling speculation of a full-on Batman putting in an appearance at some point. Don’t forget, photos of a crude costume test did leak not long ago, though said duds were so devoid of detail that seeing the Caped Crusader in

New Captain Marvel Trailer Could Premiere At Next Month’s Ccxp

Captain Marvel is now less than four months away from finally reaching our screens, which means we hopefully won’t have to wait much longer before we get a trailer for Carol Danvers’ big screen debut that isn’t quite so teaser-y. In fact, with star Brie Larson announced to be headed for Brazil’s Comic Con Experience, some fans are wondering if this event could see the arrival of some new footage.

The actress will be making her Ccxp appearance on December 8th, which falls exactly three months prior to the movie’s North American release date. And according to one Reddit user who’s been spreading this news, the manager of the convention has already confirmed that the weekend will see the release of “a string of exclusive trailers,” among which a new Captain Marvel promo sounds quite possible. And while it’s unclear whether these trailers will

We Now Have Confirmation Of The Year That Captain Marvel’s Set In

A few days ago, actress Brie Larson took to social media with an image from the upcoming Captain Marvel that led many fans to believe that the film will be set in 1991 or 1992 due to its “Rock the Vote” posters, among other details. Now, however, a new source has emerged that shifts the date to 1995, and there’s good reason to believe that this time the internet has it right.

The reveal comes from the Marvel section of Disney’s official Japanese website, where fans have found some text which seemingly confirms that Carol Danvers’ period pic will be set in the year of Toy Story and Batman Forever. If this is the real deal – and again, it looks like it could well be – then perhaps we can just dismiss those old poster clues as the production team not scrutinizing their props quite as intently as the rest of us do.

Titans Episode 3 Review: Origins

Starfire is back in the picture as Titans has its best episode yet!

This Titans review contains spoilers.

Titans Episode 3

Titans is a weird show, and nowhere is this more apparent than in “Origins.” It’s kind of remarkable that every major character on this show is a superhero. There are virtually no Pov characters, whether comics-based or otherwise (think Foggy Nelson or Karen Page on Daredevil) popping in and out of these episodes on a regular basis to give viewers a window into this world. Instead, we have our heroes and we have the strange villains pursuing them, and Titans just assumes you’re cool with being thrown into the deep end.

And you know what? They’re right. “Origins” is by far the best episode of Titans, one that washes away any lingering bad feelings from that uneven first chapter. There’s virtually no action in this episode,

The Evolution of the DC Universe Titans Series

Mike Cecchini Oct 18, 2018

Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman have tried to make the DC Universe Titans TV series a reality for years.

While Titans rocketed into the public eye with the first reveal of Brenton Thwaites in one of the best looking live action superhero costumes in recent memory, followed by a somewhat controversial trailer where Dick Grayson revealed his opinion of Batman, the show has had a far longer and more winding road to the screen than you might suspect. I spoke with executive producers and writers Geoff Johns by phone before the premiere of the first episode on DC Universe, and with Akiva Goldsman during a roundtable interview at New York Comic Con about the early evolution of the series and the challenges they faced.

6 Good Things That Came Out of Bad Movies

Paul Bradshaw Oct 15, 2018

Because every Gigli has a silver lining, we look at how bad movies ultimately made good things happen.

No movie is all bad. Some films seem so misguided that it’s hard to see why anyone didn't stop them being made before they cost so much time, money and talent, yet sometimes those same mistakes have led to something genuinely great further down the line.

Careers have been ruined by stinkers like After Earth and Gigli – but they’ve also been made. A really, truly, unequivocally terrible movie often makes a big impact in the film industry as everyone else scrabbles to try and avoid repeating it – shaping genres, shifting tides and making sure we never have to watch The Last Airbender again.

However bad some movies might be, there’s always a silver lining if you look for it…

Ethan Hawke Gets Candid on Fame, Filmmaking and What He Learned From ‘Reality Bites’

Ethan Hawke Gets Candid on Fame, Filmmaking and What He Learned From ‘Reality Bites’
When Ethan Hawke was 24, he became a Gen X pinup thanks to “Reality Bites.”

As Troy Dyer, a good-looking slacker and aspiring musician with a wisp of a Van Dyke beard and a duffel bag full of unearned wisdom about life and materialism, Hawke defined the fears and hopes of young adults in the MTV era. But fame had a stultifying quality for the actor, who says he had trouble coming to terms with the success of the 1994 romantic comedy-drama.

“When you’re in your early 20s and you’re still struggling to find out who you are, it pours gasoline on the fire of confusion,” says Hawke. “You don’t know north or south, east or west. Some people hated the [‘Reality Bites’] character and they hated me, or they loved the character and they loved me. I didn’t know enough about acting then to understand what was going on.

Avengers: Infinity War Directors Say They Almost Included A Sherlock Joke

It’s the kind of the glaring in-joke that the Deadpool movies would’ve pounced on. Avengers: Infinity War sees the meeting of two incarnations of arguably the most famous detective in literary history, and yet this slightly surreal phenomenon goes completely unacknowledged throughout the course of the Marvel mega hit.

The two actors in question, of course, are Robert Downey Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch. While the pair respectively play Tony Stark and Stephen Strange in the ensemble actioner, each has also found success in the role of Sherlock Holmes, with Downey Jr. playing the titular hero of the 2009 movie and its 2011 sequel, while Cumberbatch stars in the more concisely titled Sherlock, the ongoing series produced by the BBC.

It doesn’t take a master detective to see the comedic setup here, but directors Anthony and Joe Russo weren’t biting. Moreover, in the audio commentary track for the Infinity War home video release,

The Batman Will Reportedly Include Harvey Dent

Now that we’ve heard Matt Reeves is likely looking to Frank Miller’s Year One graphic novel for influence, our next topic for discussion pertaining to The Batman actually ties in with that. Keep in mind that if indeed this all pans out, a strict adaptation is not to be expected. Still, those of you familiar with the book will recognize some similarities.

Chief among those will be a certain supporting character: Harvey Dent. Though moviegoers are already well acquainted with this guy, it’s somewhat vital to include him if the Caped Crusader’s earlier days are to be explored. Granted, his role in Year One itself was very minor, but it could be expanded in Reeves’ film.

According to Revenge of the Fans, Gotham City’s District Attorney is only mentioned as being such, with no confirmation of his transition to becoming Two-Face included in the report.

Can Star Wars: Episode IX harness Billy Dee Williams's charm as Lando Calrissian?

Williams’s return to the film franchise has been a long time coming, but the 81-year-old actor clearly has reserves of unused star power

Tom Selleck as Indiana Jones, Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly, Dustin Hoffman as Michael Corleone: Hollywood history is littered with could-have-been moments. Billy Dee Williams, who is set to return to the role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode IX, has a few of his own, not least his replacement by Tommy Lee Jones as Harvey Dent/Two-Face in Batman Forever.

Williams had played the upstanding Gotham City district attorney in 1989’s Batman, his first real moment in the spotlight since Star Wars, but audiences never got to see his transformation into Dent’s nefarious alter-ego. First, Christopher Walken was hired to play the big bad (Max Shreck) of sequel Batman Returns in 1991. The part, as originally conceived, would reputedly have seen Williams as

What Tom Hiddleston Looks Like as Riddler in the Dceu

What Tom Hiddleston Looks Like as Riddler in the Dceu
As a response to some fan casting that we never knew we needed, Redditor BatFlashHunterDesign created a detailed piece of fan art showing what actor Tom Hiddleston would look like as the Riddler in a future Batman movie. All things considered, it looks pretty great.

Tom Hiddleston has played the villain Loki in a number of McU movies over the years, until what seemed to be his final appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. Hiddleston should theoretically have a bit more free time now that his time with Marvel Studios has come to an end. While he likely wasn't anyone's first pick to play Edward Nygma / the Riddler, this fan art does look promising, and may be enough to change people's minds.

While it's unclear if the Riddler will make an appearance in the upcoming movie The Batman, being directed by Matt Reeves, there have certainly been a number of rumors
