Joker Brings in Brett Cullen to Replace Alec Baldwin as Batman's Dad

Joker Brings in Brett Cullen to Replace Alec Baldwin as Batman's Dad
The Joker origin movie has found its Thomas Wayne. Originally, the role was supposed to go to Alec Baldwin, with the character being described as a tanned 80s businessman in the vein of a younger Donald Trump. That made Baldwin's casting pretty logical, considering his portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live recently. However, Baldwin quickly departed the project, citing scheduling issues. We now have word that actor Brett Cullen has been tapped as his replacement.

Multiple reports have confirmed that Brett Cullen will indeed play Thomas Wayne. In the world of DC Comics, for those who may not be familiar, Thomas Wayne is the father of Bruce Wayne, the boy who ultimately grows up to become Batman after his parents are gunned down in an alleyway. This news comes just as production on Joker recently got underway. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix as a man named Arthur Fleck who becomes the famed villain,

Brett Cullen Will Play Bruce Wayne’s Father In ‘The Joker’
After Alec Baldwin passed on the iconic role of Thomas Wayne in Todd Phillip’s The Joker, Narcos actor Brett Cullen is stepping into the role.

Cullen’s acting career spans 38 years with a few roles in comic-book related projects, namely he starred as Barton Blaze, father of Nicolas Cage’s Johnny Blaze in the 2007 feature adaptation of Marvel’s Ghost Rider and as a congressman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises. In 1981 Cullen also starred as Joe Dumming in an episode of CBSThe Incredible Hulk. Recently, the actor starred as Arthur Crosby on Netflix’s Narcos, Cole Van Awken on Queen of the South, and Nathan Ingram on CBS’ Person of Interest.

Thomas Wayne was first introduced in Detective Comics #33 (Nov. 1939) and he is a respected physician and philanthropist in Gotham. Wayne and his wife were murdered exiting the theater before young Bruce’s eyes, and that

20 Things Wrong With The Hulk Everyone Chooses To Ignore

In 1962, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created a new character whose origins came from classic Universal horror monsters rather than the superheroes that they brought to life in the pages of Fantastic Four.

Hulk was one of Marvel Comics first creations, arriving months before Spider-Man made his debut in Amazing Fantasy #15 and the year before names like Iron Man and the X-Men arrived on the scene.

Since that debut, if there is one thing that is consistent about Hulk, it is that Hulk is not consistent and things have changed constantly throughout the run of the Big Green Goliath. There were even times when he wasn't even green anymore.

That is only part of the problem with The Incredible Hulk, a superhero that has similar traits to many villains but always remains a good guy because he is the one usually fighting for honorable reasons.

Despite this, there are many

Nicolas Cage: ‘Ghost Rider’ Would’ve Been ‘Enormously Successful’ If Rated R and Released in 2018

Nicolas Cage: ‘Ghost Rider’ Would’ve Been ‘Enormously Successful’ If Rated R and Released in 2018
Nicolas Cage tried his hand at comic book stardom with 2007’s “Ghost Rider.” The movie was a critical misfire (23% on Rotten Tomatoes) that didn’t set the box office on fire, grossing $115 million in the U.S. against a $110 million budget. The film’s disappointing returns resulted in a five-year delay for the sequel, “Spirit of Vengeance,” which fared even worse. Hollywood’s current superhero boom started a year after “Ghost Rider” with summer 2018 hits “Iron Man” and “The Dark Knight,” and Cage argues that “Ghost Rider” would’ve fared much better if it were released today.

“Had ‘Ghost Rider’ been made in R-rated format, the way they had the guts to do with ‘Deadpool,’ and they did it again today, I’m fairly certain it would be enormously successful,” Cage told Yahoo! Entertainment. “Having said that, I still think the movies were a hit. People don’t look at the subsidiary outlets,

New Easter Egg Connecting Thor And Captain America: The First Avenger Discovered

From the off, the McU made clear that it was attempting something practically no movie franchise had done before in building up a cohesive shared world from the beginning. As well as showy cameos like Nick Fury in Iron Man and Tony Stark in The Incredible Hulk, little nods and easter eggs helped feed into the sense that it really was all connected.

Take this new discovery for example, which a fan made recently that ties together the events of Thor with Captain America: The First Avenger. Reddit user Comrade_Batman noticed that the town of Tonsberg, Norway, features in both Phase One movies. In the former, it’s the location of the Asgardian battle with the Frost Giants in ancient times. In the latter, it’s where Red Skull uncovers the Tesseract.

Dave Gibbons gives HBO’s Watchmen series his seal of approval

It’s never going to get the blessing of Alan Moore, let’s face it, but Watchmen co-creator Dave Gibbons has given HBO and Damon Lindelof’s upcoming TV adaptation of the seminal graphic novel his seal of approval during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“I do know a little about it,” said Gibbons. “I’ve had conversations with Damon, and I’ve read the screenplay for the pilot. I don’t think it’s my place to say too much about it, other than I found Damon’s approach to be really refreshing and exciting and unexpected. I don’t think it’s gonna be what people think it’s going to be. It certainly wasn’t what I imagined it to be. I think it’s extremely fresh. I’m really looking forward to seeing it on the screen.”

“I’ve been resistant to the comic book prequels and sequels,

Edward Norton Never Gave Any Feedback To Mark Ruffalo About His Hulk

Remember when Edward Norton was Bruce Banner/The Hulk? I don’t blame you if it’s a fuzzy memory, as The Incredible Hulk is definitely one of the most forgettable McU movies and its events aren’t referenced very often. Despite the film not being that great, though, Norton’s Banner is one of the highlights, with the actor giving the role some genuine depth and pathos.

Considering the amount of research he did for the part, you might expect that he’d have a little feedback for Mark Ruffalo, who Marvel Studios recast as Banner. But, according to Ruffalo in an interview with The Marvelists, that wasn’t the case.

“We’ve never really talked about it. I was just kinda like, ‘Is this okay?’ and he was like, ‘Man, all’s fair in love and war.’ And planet Hulk and World War Hulk. He never gave me any feedback.

‘Iron Fist': What is K’un-Lun? A Quick Explainer of the Heavenly, Mystical City

‘Iron Fist': What is K’un-Lun? A Quick Explainer of the Heavenly, Mystical City
(Some light spoilers ahead for Season 1 of “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and “The Defenders” on Netflix.)

A central part of the story of Netflix’s “Iron Fist” Season 2 is the fight that led to Danny Rand (Finn Jones) becoming the Immortal Iron Fist, a highly trained martial artist who can channel power into his fist and punch through just about anything — or anyone.

Danny faced off against his best friend and adopted brother, Davos (Sacha Dhawan), for the honor of becoming the Iron Fist. Both lived in K’un-Lun, a mystical city far removed from the rest of civilization. If you haven’t watched the first season of “Iron Fist,” however, you might be forgetting what exactly the deal is with K’un-Lun, or what’s so weird about it.

Exciting New Details Revealed For The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance TV Series

We haven't heard much about The Jim Henson Company's new series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance since it was first announced over a year ago. But Brian Henson recently shared some new details on the series, and it's enough to get fans more excited about what's to come.

Up until now, all we've known is that fantasy adventure is a prequel to The Dark Crystal and it takes place several years before the events of the first film. It will consist of ten episodes and it's being created using "an ensemble of fantastical, state-of-the-art creatures created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Brian Froud, the original feature’s conceptual designer."

During a panel at DragonCon this past weekend Brian Henson offered the following update and details:

Surprise Connection Discovered Between The Incredible Hulk And Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Ever since Ed Norton was switched out for Mark Ruffalo, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk has held a strangely isolated place in the McU, making it sometimes easy to forget that it even occupies the same reality as the rest of the saga. Nonetheless, a recent post on Reddit would suggest that Bruce Banner’s last solo outing is a little more connected to the larger franchise that followed than you might have thought, with one fan pointing out the early inclusion of one major character from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – or at least the actor who plays him.

Incredible Hulk sees Peter Mensah take on the role of General Joe Gellar, one of the associates of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. You’d be forgiven if this minor part doesn’t ring a bell, but ten years later, Mensah’s significance in the McU has notably expanded via his role as Qovas in Agents of S.

New Spider-Man: Far From Home Set Photo Teases Trouble To Come

Mr. Harrington, head of Peter Parker’s Academic Decathlon team, has an unfortunate track record when it comes to student safety on field trips, and it looks like this worrying trend will continue with next year’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.

While actor Martin Starr’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was technically a small role in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, the Silicon Valley and Freaks and Geeks star didn’t truly make his mark on the franchise until he took on the part of Mr. Harrington, with his deadpan delivery serving as an enjoyable addition to last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. Perhaps his most fondly remembered moment comes after Spider-Man saves the class from danger in Washington, D.C., at which point the teacher comments with relief that he couldn’t bear to lose a student on a school trip “again.”

Avengers: Infinity War Included A Subtle Easter Egg To A Classic Marvel Comic

Much digital ink has been spilled over Avengers: Infinity War and the ways in which Marvel’s comic book mash-up draws inspiration from Jim Starlin’s Infinity Gauntlet comic. And while that may well be the case, the film also borrowed elements from a series of other Marvel ComicsThe Incredible Hulk #241 included.

Over on Reddit (h/t Heroic Hollywood), one eagle-eyed user has posted an Infinity War screenshot to prove that, yes, the image of Bruce Banner struggling to evoke his raging alter-ego has its roots in comics – specifically the 1979 one penned by Al Milgrom. It seems half a Hulk is better than none, after all…

Wait, Is Thaddeus Ross One Of The McU’s Skrulls?

In the wake of Infinity War (and Ant-Man and the Wasp!), the Powers That Be are bracing for the arrival of Captain Marvel and with it, a 90s-set adventure in which Carol Danvers encounters the Skrulls.

Those shape-shifting aliens have been a staple of Marvel Comics for generations, and they’re coming to the big screen very soon indeed – if not for Avengers 4, then Phase 4 of the McU.

Speaking of which, over on Reddit, a user by the name of TheBrickPal has pieced together a new theory which suggests that Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) is actually a Skrull, and will prove instrumental in introducing those pesky aliens to the wider Marvel Universe.

Stick with us, as here’s how it reads:

Given Ross as a lieutenant general in the army in The Incredible Hulk, it’s not unlikely to think he has been in the military for a long time – perhaps…

Synopsis:

Avengers: Infinity War arrives on Blu-ray. If you’re a fan, you probably already pre-ordered this one. The movie is a thrill ride with a villain who has a surprising amount of depth to him, and the bonus features are serviceable but lack the kind of lengthy retrospective documentary that I always enjoy.

Is Sony Cashing Out of Hollywood?

For all intents and purposes, the superhero bubble has finally burst. It’s not that the public has finally “gotten over” superheroes as the major force driving the box office in the 21st century, but rather that everything has finally consolidated (much as it has in the comic publishing world) under the banner of the “big two:” that is, Marvel and DC. Since before even Iron Man (2008), Marvel has slowly been reacquiring the movie rights to their comic characters that they sold off in a desperate bid to stave off bankruptcy in the 1990s.
