Kevin Smith Wants Arnold Schwarzenegger as Galactus & Bruce Willis as Silver Surfer in the MCU

Kevin Smith Wants Arnold Schwarzenegger as Galactus & Bruce Willis as Silver Surfer in the MCU
Indie filmmaker and well-renowned comic book fan Kevin Smith has some interesting ideas when it comes to casting several of Marvel's most famous characters, with the director pushing for the MCU to add action icons Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis as Galactus and Silver Surfer, respectively. Smith made the...interesting suggestion during a recent episode of his podcast, and while it jars slightly at first, it soon becomes increasingly easy to picture the two actors as these Marvel characters.

"I want to see him in a big funny hat, I want to see him eating planets. Then you've got your Stallone, you've got your Schwarzenegger, and then in your Planet Hollywood triumverate, you get [Bruce] Willis to play The Silver Surfer."

These thoughts from Kevin Smith on the subject at hand arose when he was asked who he would cast Schwarzenegger as in the Marvel movies alongside Sylvester Stallone, who is

Dave Bautista Held a Meeting with Warner Bros. to Tell the Studio He’s Going to Play Bane

Dave Bautista Held a Meeting with Warner Bros. to Tell the Studio He’s Going to Play Bane
Dave Bautista has made it clear on social media over the last several years that one of his dream movie roles is the Batman villain Bane, but the wrestling icon turned action movie star doesn’t just talk the talk. During an appearance at JusticeCon (via Collider) to promote his leading role in Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead,” Bautista revealed he organized a meeting with Warner Bros. and DC Films to more or less demand the role of Bane whenever the studios decide to revive the villain character on the big screen.

“I want to play Bane so bad I went to Warner Bros., had an appointment with them, had an appointment with DC, walked in the door and said, ‘I want to play Bane,'” Bautista said. “I’m not kidding. They were a little like. ‘Woah, we’re not even casting Bane.’ I was like ‘I don’t care,

Yes, Michael Keaton Really Is Playing Batman in ‘The Flash’

Yes, Michael Keaton Really Is Playing Batman in ‘The Flash’
Michael Keaton’s talent agency, ICM Partners, has confirmed the actor will return as Batman in “The Flash.”

The superhero film officially kicked off production in London on Monday, as revealed in an Instagram post from director Andrés Muschietti.

As TheWrap first exclusively reported, Keaton was in talks to return to the role of Batman after nearly 30 years, to appear alongside Ezra Miller in Warner Bros.’ “The Flash.”

But Keaton set the fandom on fire last month when he hinted in an interview with Deadline that he might not do “The Flash” because of his concerns about Covid-19.

“To be honest with you, you know what worries me more than anything about all this stuff? It’s Covid,” Keaton said at the time. “I’m more concerned. I keep my eye more on the Covid situation in the UK than anything. That will determine everything, and so that’s why

15 Hardest Sega Genesis Games of All-Time

15 Hardest Sega Genesis Games of All-Time
There are a lot of reasons to love the Sega Genesis, but in my mind, the console’s best feature was its library of arcade-like titles. At a time when the idea of playing arcade games at home involved winning the lottery, the Genesis gifted gamers with title after title that captured the spirit of those unforgettable experiences.

As Genesis fans know, though, that library of arcade-like games meant that the average Genesis title was often as brutally difficult as the arcade games of that era that set standards for hard video games that some fans argue (much like the games themselves) haven’t been beat. I won’t reignite a console war here, but if you were a ’90s gamer looking for the biggest challenges, you usually found them on the Genesis.

But which Genesis game was the toughest of them all? Well, there’s a good chance retro

Space Jam 2: Every Crazy Cameo We've Seen So Far

Space Jam 2: Every Crazy Cameo We've Seen So Far
A New Legacy is rightfully being compared to Ready Player One and the Lego movies after Warner Bros. dropped the first Space Jam 2 trailer. The 2018 big adaptation of Ernest Cline's 2011 novel had a huge amount of Warner Bros. cameos for fans to geek out on, but the Space Jam sequel may contain even more cameos from even weirder parts of the studio's vast vault, as evidenced by the short trailer. Prepare for multiple viewings of the Space Jam 2 trailer.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation – 5 Ways It's So Bad It's Good (& 5 Ways It Deserves A Fatality)

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation – 5 Ways It's So Bad It's Good (& 5 Ways It Deserves A Fatality)
Though not a flawless victory, the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie holds a special place in the hearts of fans. For many, it is still the best video game movie ever made; the cast is still fondly remembered for bringing the characters to life, the music is iconic, and it changed many aspects of future games.

It also features an ending tease that had fans excited for a sequel. In 1997, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was the sequel and it was one of the biggest flops, rivaling the likes of Batman & Robin the same year. Much like Batman & Robin, there were just as many painful scenes as there were laughable ones.

Why Julia Stiles Still Loves Her Old Movies As Much As You Do

Why Julia Stiles Still Loves Her Old Movies As Much As You Do
For some stars, reflecting back on their first film roles—the parts they accepted when turning down a job wasn't exactly an option—is entirely cringe-worthy, an exercise in humility. (See: George Clooney any time he discusses 1997's Batman & Robin.) And while Julia Stiles admits that seeing her teenage self on-screen in flicks like 10 Things I Hate About You and Save the Last Dance isn't the easiest, she certainly doesn't hate her earliest fare. Not even close. Not even a little bit. Not even at all. "It's really funny to me when people tell me which movies they respond to," she remarked to The L.A. Times in 2017, "and it's usually...

Step Aside, MCU: Here’s All the DC Universe Content You Can Stream on HBO Max

Step Aside, MCU: Here’s All the DC Universe Content You Can Stream on HBO Max
With the release of Superman in 1978, DC Comics broke ground and practically invented the blockbuster genre of superhero films. Decades later, with dozens of animated movies, live-action shows, and a new ensemble-led Dceu (DC Extended Universe) film series set to rival Marvel, the expansive franchises have finally found their permanent home on HBO Max.

DC Universe, the former platform for Dceu content, was rebranded as DC Universe Infinite by WarnerMedia in January 2021, with a sole focus on a library of more than 24,000 comic books. HBO Max will become the exclusive streaming platform for DC content,

Underrated Superhero Movies From the 1990s Still Worth Checking Out
Marvelous Videos on the underappreciated superhero movies of the 90s… Superhero movies are a staple of today’s cinema, but like every popular form of media, there has been a dark side to comic book-based movies.

How Batman #14 Became a “Very Serious Book” in The Lost Boys

How Batman #14 Became a “Very Serious Book” in The Lost Boys
“Actually, I’m looking for a Batman #14.”

In the vampire-killing continuity of The Lost Boys, that intriguing humble-brag by Corey Haim’s Sam Emerson could very well be the definitive way to declare yourself amongst the elite of geekdom. Yet, while the 1987 film—notably from future Batman film franchise director Joel Schumacher—was rife with riffs directed at the hitherto untapped masses of comic book fandom, this shout-out to a Golden Age issue would, indeed, make it “a very serious book, man,” as Corey Feldman’s Edgar Frog famously replied. Moreover, the reference would pay emotional dividends in a made-for-video sequel.

The scene was expository for The Lost Boys, in which young Sam, new to the California community of Santa Clara, wanders into the comic shop of Frog Brothers Edgar (Feldman) and Alan (Jamison Newlander), who immediately scope him out as someone who doesn’t quite belong in their nerdy,

5 Ways Batman Forever Is Underrated (& 5 Ways It Aged Terribly)

5 Ways Batman Forever Is Underrated (& 5 Ways It Aged Terribly)
Everyone knows by now that 1997's Batman & Robin was a complete disaster that killed the 1990s Batman series that started with Tim Burton's Batman. So as a result, the infamous status of that sequel led to years of people mocking both it and tainting its predecessor: Batman Forever.

There are several things about Batman Forever that make it weaker in comparison to the likes of Batman (1989) or Batman Begins. However, there are also qualities that make the third Batman film still an enjoyable superhero romp. Many of these qualities fans tend to ignore rather than give credit where it is due.

5 Best Moments In Joel Schumacher's Batman Movies (& 5 Of The Worst)

5 Best Moments In Joel Schumacher's Batman Movies (& 5 Of The Worst)
The mid-90s Joel Schumacher era of Batman movies has been largely derided and written off. However, this is mostly because of Batman & Robin, and, since its much-maligned release, audiences tend to lump Batman Forever and Batman & Robin together. But actually, Batman Forever was a huge hit and received better reviews than its predecessor.

Every movie is a mixed bag. There's good and bad in everything. Audiences forget there are actually a lot of great moments in Batman Forever and even some in Batman & Robin. Some might say the bad outweighs the good, and with Batman & Robin they're certainly right, but both films still contain a fair amount of good that makes them watchable.

HBO Max New Releases: February 2021
When it released Wonder Woman 1984 to its HBO Max servers in December, WarnerMedia made it abundantly clear that it was ready for a new era of movie distribution. Now, in its list of new releases for February 2021, Warner is attempting another grand experiment for HBO Max.

Judas and the Black Messiah premieres on HBO Max this Feb. 12 and is by every indication the kind of film that awards shows go gaga over. Both Daniel Kaluuya and and Lakeith Stanfield look to be at the top of their respective games in this story about Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton and the FBI that wants to take him down. Will this have the same rhetorical oomph on the small screen? Guess we’ll find out!

Senator Who Is Third in Line for President Has Been in Five Batman Movies

Senator Who Is Third in Line for President Has Been in Five Batman Movies
Believe it or not, one of the most powerful political figures in the United States has also been in not one, but five, count 'em five Batman movies. Indeed, Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, is a self-proclaimed huge fan of the iconic DC Comics hero. Be it a powerful figure in the field of politics or otherwise, not many fans can say they've been in any movies related to their comic book heroes, let alone five. But the third man in line for the presidency has been in a handful.

Senator Patrick Leahy was first elected in 1974 and has been serving his country ever since. As it also happens, he's the longest-serving member of the Senate. As President pro tempore of the Senate, that puts him at third in line to become President of the United States, per the official presidential line of succession. He is just behind Vice President Kamala Harris,

George Clooney Admits Being Drunk While Filming One Fine Day Scene with Michelle Pfeiffer

George Clooney Admits Being Drunk While Filming One Fine Day Scene with Michelle Pfeiffer
George Clooney admits to being drunk once on the set of One Fine Day. The 1996 movie was Clooney's first big studio production, and he starred alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, who remembers the actor smelling like a "brewery" while they were shooting on that particular day. While the movie was not a hit when it opened in theaters, it has since become a cult favorite, though it was pretty tough on the actors at the time.

In a new interview, George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer recall working on One Fine Day back in the mid-1990s. "The other thing about the film was, with very few exceptions, we were doing two different movies. I was in one world and working, and you were in another world and working," Clooney remembers, referring to the fact that their characters spend a lot of time apart in the movie. The actor then remembered a night

Titans” has found its Barbara Gordon in Savannah Welch.

In the now-hbo Max series, Gordon is the Gotham City police commissioner and long past her days as Batgirl. Although she has a past relationship with Dick Grayson (Brendan Thwaites), she is wary of the Titans now being in Gotham. Alicia Silverstone played a loosely based version of the character in Joel Schumacher’s “Batman & Robin.”

How Batman & Robin Bombing Helped George Clooney Become Better at His Job

How Batman & Robin Bombing Helped George Clooney Become Better at His Job
Uneasy lies the head that wears the Batman cowl. While Christian Bale and Micheal Keaton came out of the experience of playing the Dark Knight relatively unscathed, other actors, from Adam West to George Clooney, to Ben Affleck have struggled due to their time spent portraying the Caped Crusader. In a new interview, Clooney explained that the terrible reception to his movie Batman & Robin, while hurtful, led him to a better career as an actor by forcing him to focus on doing films with good scripts.

"I'd gotten killed for doing Batman & Robin and I understood for the first time - because quite honestly when I got Batman & Robin I was just an actor getting an acting job and I was excited to play Batman - what I realized after that was that I was going to be held responsible for the movie itself not just my

George Clooney Reveals What He Learned From Batman & Robin Bombing

George Clooney Reveals What He Learned From Batman & Robin Bombing
It’s fair to say that George Clooney’s single turn as the Dark Knight in Batman & Robin wasn’t one of his career highlights, with the campy blockbuster effectively putting the franchise on ice until 2005. In recent months, Clooney has been pretty open about his views on the film and his performance, and seems to be philosophical about the whole experience. The actor has now shared more thoughts about what Batman & Robin taught him about his craft and how it’s indirectly helped on the path to better roles.

Clooney had this to say about where he was in his life when he signed on for Joel Schumacher’s movie:
