The Batman reportedly features up to six villains, including The Penguin and Catwoman

With reports circulating that Robert Pattinson is all but officially on board to become the latest actor to don the cape and cowl as The Dark Knight, attention is starting to turn towards which members of the Rogue’s Gallery we can expect to see showing up in Matt ReevesThe Batman.

According to an article at The Hollywood Reporter, there’ll be up to Six villains, including the long-rumoured The Penguin and his Batman Returns partner in crime Catwoman.

Oswald Cobblepot’s inclusion won’t come as any surprise, as it has been reported on numerous occasions that he’ll be involved. It’s also been said that Penguin was originally going to be the villain in the DC girl gang movie Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) before being replaced by Black Mask after Reeves decided to make use of him in The Batman.

Seal Team Is Deploying Really Good Drama That More Should Be Watching

At last May’s Upfronts, I suggested to CBS’ entertainment chief that Seal Team‘s Season 2 renewal must have been a close call, given, as I put it, the freshman drama’s “disappointing” ratings.

The premise of my question was refuted — Seal Team at the time did rank No. 3 in the demo among all CBS dramas, though it was ninth in the network’s famously and frequently touted measure of total viewership. But to this day, more than midway through Season 2, I maintain that this show should be doing better. And I remain puzzled as to why it isn’t.

‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ Adds Jessica Garza, Johnathan Nieves

  • Variety
The upcoming Showtime drama “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” has cast both Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves in series regular roles, Variety has learned.

They join previously announced cast member Daniel Zovatto.

‘Deep State’: Walton Goggins To Star In Season 2 Of Fox Networks Group’s Thriller
Justified and Vice Principals alum Walton Goggins will headline and executive produce the upcoming eight-episode second season of Deep State, I have learned. The spy thriller, from Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa, airs in 50 markets across the region.

Goggins will take over for Mark Strong, who starred in the first season.

The first season centered around Max Easton (Strong), an ex-spy whose past comes back to haunt him when he’s summoned away from his new life in the Pyrenees by George White (Alistair Petrie), head of covert MI6/CIA team “The Section.” White convinces Max to return to the field to avenge the death of his estranged son Harry.

Six Season 2 Episode 9 Review: The Reckoning

The real battle has begun and Chase and Buddha are going to be watching from the sidelines.

The team headed back to Russia on Six Season 2 Episode 9 thanks to some surprising intel from Nasry, but things turned ugly and Buddha and Chase took to the skies while the rest of the team were left behind.

The one guy you'd think would have turned his back on the Muslim was the one who didn't move from Fishbait's side when he got shot. All the hate spewing out of Trevor's mouth all season was nothing but show because when it came down to it, he put his teammate above everything else.

Bear wasn't going to leave anyone behind either and jumped out of the helicopter before it was too late. Caulder also got out.

So now we got four SEALs on the ground, one of them injured and Prince's ambush brigade headed their way.

‘The Predator’: Olivia Munn Made Sure Her ‘Badass’ Character Got the Same Respect as Men in Action Scenes

‘The Predator’: Olivia Munn Made Sure Her ‘Badass’ Character Got the Same Respect as Men in Action Scenes
In “The Predator,” Olivia Munn plays Casey Bracket, a scientist and the lone woman teamed up with a group of military men to stop the namesake, genetically-enhanced super species from destroying mankind. During the first Hall H panel of 2018’s San Diego Comic-Con, when she was complimented on her ease handling firearms onscreen, the actress and best-selling author explained how she and writer-director Shane Black chose to subvert one stereotype that commonly hinders women in action movies.

“Something that’s really big for me, that I think about working on every role, is micro-aggression, especially when it comes to how we portray women,” Munn said, seated alongside Black and her co-stars Sterling K. Brown, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key, Augusto Aguilera, Trevante Rhodes, and Jake Busey. “Whenever you see movies, the guy can pick up a gun or whatever, and he just automatically knows how to do it. And girls are always like [in a whiny voice], ‘Oh,

North Carolina Encourages Production by Raising Project Cap

  • Variety
North Carolina has a lot to offer producers, including mild temperatures, sandy coastlines and a stretch of Appalachian Mountains. Those looking to shoot in an urban setting can head to Raleigh, the state capital, or bustling Charlotte. The city of Wilmington is a major production center and boasts seasoned film crews and the second-largest stage space east of California. And wherever filmmaking takes place, it can take advantage of a 25% rebate and a recently increased project cap.

Specifically, the rebate is set at 25% for all qualified expenditures. The minimum spend required per film is $3 million, and the minimum per TV episode is $1 million.

Projects caps are set at $7 million per film and $12 million per TV season. There’s also a $250,000 project cap for commercials.

The program’s annual cap is $31 million, with unused funds carrying over from fiscal year to fiscal year. In addition, the incentive’s Sunset date has been eliminated.

Six Canceled on History After Two Seasons!

With four more episodes left to air, History has decided to cancel its gritty military drama Six.

Ratings have not been kind to the second season, but there were some big changes to the story of the ten-episode chapter in comparison to Six Season 1.

What hasn't changed is camaraderie between the characters on one of the few shows on television that currently features men supporting other men in a sea of programming that features women doing it all the time.

Six Season 2 began immediately after Rip was shot. The character was ultimately killed, leaving a hole in the cast left by Walton Goggins.

The Seal Team felt the pain of their former leader's loss and with Bear at the helm and the addition of CIA officer Gina Cline (Olivia Munn), began to scour Eastern Europe, infiltrating hostile territory and terrorist hotspots like Chechnya as they track the mastermind behind the

Six Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Critical

Watching Rip being torn apart by bullets on the recap at the beginning of Six Season 2 Episode 1 was as shocking as it was at the end of Six Season 1 Episode 8. Rip may have had his faults, but he didn't deserve what happened to him.

And the fact that it was a young girl from Oregon doing the bidding of the evil Michael Nasry makes the whole situation even worse.

How could someone turn against her own country so easily and without regret?

What is so compelling about Six is that it immediately grabs hold of you and doesn't let go. You can't tear your eyes from the action on the screen. The feelings of anger at what happened are real.

I want vengeance on the bad guys as much as the rest of the team.

The other great thing about Six is its amazing cinematography. Everything is so realistic that
